The pandemic may have made it more difficult for freshmen to make a splash during Spring and Fall camps, but despite the circumstances, these first-year players have battled against adversity and made a name for themselves in their first season of action.
While the Browns' four-game winning streak masked Mayfield’s 66.3 passing grade, it’s impossible to mask where Mayfield has struggled when the Browns have to play catchup. If that doesn’t change soon, the Browns can’t be considered serious contenders.
Free-agent acquisition budget (FAAB) leagues level the playing field for nabbing fantasy free agents after each week of NFL action, and Boston Scott is a top priority after Week 6 of the 2020 NFL season.
The Titans face a potential fine, though no individual will be disciplined as the NFL has wrapped up its review of Tennessee's adherence to COVID-19 policies and procedures, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The Chiefs lost starting right tackle Mitchell Schwartz to a back injury in the first half of Monday night's game against the Bills. Backup defensive end Alex Okafor was also ruled out with a hamstring injury.
The Broncos signed veteran quarterback Blake Bortles to their practice squad, the team announced Monday. The team cut Bortles on Saturday before its game against New England. Bortles, the third overall pick in 2014, signed with Denver in late September after Drew Lock injured his shoulder in Week Two against the Steelers. Bortles, 28, has […]
Some would call Rob Gronkowski the greatest tight end in the history of the game. It’s hard to argue he’s not one of the best ever with his four All-Pro nods, three Super Bowl rings and a spot on the NFL’s 100th Anniversary All-Time Team. Gronkowski played nine seasons for Bill Belichick in New England. […]
The Chiefs dominated the Bills tonight, but not the way they usually do it. Instead of Patrick Mahomes beating the Bills with his arm, it was the Chiefs’ ground game that led Kansas City to a 26-17 victory. Rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire led the way with 161 yards, and the Chiefs also got strong […]
Cardinals left tackle D.J. Humphries was a late addition to the team’s injury report, but he won’t miss Monday night’s game. Humphries was limited in Saturday’s practice with a back injury and he was listed as questionable to face the Cowboys. Humphries is active for the game and should be in his customary spot in […]
Sunday’s loss to the Broncos featured a distinctly unBelichickian performance from Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Twice, he opted not to throw the red challenge flag when the clear and obvious visual evidence suggested that maybe he should have. First, a 35-yard third-yard completion to Broncos tight end Tim Patrick on third and 21 seemed to […]
Rain and wind in Buffalo has made passing precarious today, so the Chiefs are taking to the ground. A nifty Patrick Mahomes third-down run set up a fourth-and-inches 13-yard touchdown run by Darrel Williams as the Chiefs took a 30-10 lead in the third quarter. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire leading the way, the Chiefs are well […]
The Texans claimed defensive tackle Eli Ankou off waivers from the Colts. Houston placed Ankou on the exempt/commissioner permission list. The Texans have familiarity with Ankou, having signed him as an undrafted free agent out of UCLA in 2017. Ankou has played 20 career games with stints in Indianapolis, Cleveland and Jacksonville. He has 26 […]
The Ravens surprisingly cut safety Earl Thomas during training camp. Not surprisingly, he filed a grievance, given that he had a $10 million guaranteed salary in 2020. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Ravens currently are carrying $5 million in 2020 cap space for Thomas, as a result of the grievance. By […]
The Cardinals announced they signed tight end Evan Baylis to the active roster from the practice squad. They also elevated defensive lineman Trevon Coley and linebacker Reggie Walker from the practice squad. Baylis played last week against the Jets after being elevated to the active roster from the practice squad. He originally joined the Cardinals’ […]
Travis Kelce showed off good hands and good feet to score a touchdown and give the Chiefs a 13-10 lead in the second quarter in Buffalo. Kelce made a leaping catch to grab a Patrick Mahomes pass and got his feet down inbounds in the corner of the end zone to score. Chiefs kicker Harrison […]
Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady have hooked up for a lot of touchdowns, but they still accomplished a first on Sunday. Brady hit Gronkowski for a touchdown for the first time since both players joined the Buccaneers this offseason. It was also Gronkowski’s first touchdown since 2018 as he retired after that season and did […]
On a rainy Monday afternoon in Buffalo, the Bills scored first against the Chiefs, thanks in part to a questionable spot by the officials. On a third-down run, Bills quarterback Josh Allen appeared to step out of bounds with the ball still half a yard from the line to gain. But the officials ruled it […]
The Eagles have dealt with a good number of injuries throughout the 2020 season and they’re set to be shorthanded again when they face the Giants on Thursday night. Running back Miles Sanders and tight end Zach Ertz both left Sunday’s loss to the Ravens with injuries and Monday brought word that both will be […]
The Tennessee Titans are getting off without any major league discipline after an investigation into the team’s COVID-19 outbreak. The Titans may be fined but no one will be suspended and the team will not be stripped of any draft picks, according to multiple reports. The fines apparently will be a result of failure to […]
It’s a short week for the Giants and that means they issued an estimated practice report on Monday. The team didn’t practice a day after notching their first victory of the season, but they said that wide receiver Darius Slayton would have been limited by a foot injury. Slayton had two catches for 41 yards […]
The Titans announced they activated receiver Corey Davis from the reserve/COVID-19 list. They placed left tackle Taylor Lewan on injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Lewan will miss the rest of the season. The Titans have only two players left on the COVID-19 list after activating Davis. Tight end MyCole Pruitt from the […]
Former Bengals second-round pick Margus Hunt will get a second go-round in Cincinnati. Hunt, a defensive tackle who was cut by the Saints last week, signed with the Bengals today. The Bengals selected Hunt out of SMU with the 53rd overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft. An Estonian discus thrower and shot putter, Hunt […]
Offensive lineman Cam Erving was out for Monday night’s game against the Cardinals because he’s on injured reserve with a knee injury before another announcement that would have ruled him out for Week Six. Nick Eatman of the team’s website reports that Erving has been placed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list. Per Eatman, the team […]
The Bills will have cornerback Tre'Davious White and receiver John Brown this afternoon for their game against the Chiefs. Both were listed as questionable. White has a back injury that kept him out last week against the Titans, while Brown missed that game with a calf injury. Linebacker Matt Milano, who was questionable with a […]
Bears quarterback Nick Foles said after Sunday’s 23-16 win over the Panthers that he’d rather win with the offense looking ugly than lose while putting up big numbers. Head coach Matt Nagy picked up on that theme during his Monday press conference. Nagy said that Foles’ comment “kind of sums it up” in terms of […]
