In a game where neither quarterback could establish any sort of rhythm, the New England Patriots' offense retooled its approach and mashed the Las Vegas Raiders' defense on the ground en route to a 36-20 win.
Any AFC team with Super Bowl aspirations will likely meet the Chiefs, Ravens and Steelers in the playoffs, but the Houston Texans were awarded those three teams to start their 2020 season. The results have been expected yet infuriating.
A whole lot of questions circled around Sunday's slate — are the Raiders, Rams and Bills for real? Can the Eagles get keep any hope alive? How good are the Steelers and Texans, really? Here is how things went down at PFF HQ on the third Sunday of NFL action.
PFF's Mike Renner answers your questions on what the Giants would potentially do with the No. 1 pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, what his league-wide redraft would look like, the Ravens interior offensive line and much (much) more.
Russell Wilson has already turned in a historic season for the Seahawks after a record-setting day Sunday. The most impressive mark came with his 14th TD of the season, which broke Patrick Mahomes's 2018 mark for the most through three games.
Joe Montana told deputies that his grandchild was sleeping in a playpen on Saturday when an unknown woman entered their home in Malibu and grabbed the child. Montana's wife pried the child out of the woman's arms.
The Rams were one play away from completing a historic comeback against the Bills on Sunday when a fourth-down pass interference penalty resulted in a go-ahead touchdown for Buffalo. Said Rams safety John Johnson III: 'It was the wrong call.'
The Russell Wilson vs. Dak Prescott duel was every bit as enjoyable as advertised. Wilson threw five touchdowns, giving him 14 for the season. (He should have had a sixth but more on that later.) That’s the most in NFL history through three games. Prescott threw for 472 yards and three touchdowns. He became only […]
The game of the day happened in Buffalo, where the 2-0 Bills built a huge lead over the 2-0 Rams, blew that huge lead over the 2-0 Rams, and then somehow came back and made the Rams 2-1. After the game, Bills quarterback Josh Allen addressed via phone the performance of Rams defensive tackle Aaron […]
After blowing double-digit leads in four straight games, the Lions showed some heart in today’s fourth quarter. A hard-fought game in Arizona ended with Matt Prater kicking a field goal as time expired and the Lions beating the Cardinals 26-23. Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray made some big plays but also made some very bad throws, […]
Tom Brady had his best game yet in a Buccaneers uniform as Tampa Bay took an early lead in Denver today and never looked back. Brady completed 25 of 38 passes for 297 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions, as the Bucs went up 23-3 in the second quarter and ultimately won 28-10. Rob […]
Seahawks safety Jamal Adams didn’t look happy when he limped off the field. Adams tossed his helmet. The reason? Adams injured his groin and is doubtful to return, according to the team. He injured himself when his foot slid on the turf while rushing Dak Prescott. The Cowboys ended up scoring on the drive on […]
The Jets lost 36-7 to the Colts on Sunday to fall to 0-3 while being outscored by 57 points on the season. Those three losses mean that they’ve had 10 double digit losses in 19 games with Adam Gase as their head coach. That’s a big reason why Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported on Sunday […]
The Panthers will find plenty to work on. But they won’t apologize for enjoying a win, since it had been so long. The Panthers went on the road and beat the Chargers 21-16, snapping a 10-game losing streak across two seasons. The last time they won was Week Nine of last season (Nov. 3, 2019 […]
The Packers will not have receiver Davante Adams tonight against the Saints. The team held out hope he could play through a hamstring issue as Adams made the trip. But he is among the Packers’ inactives. Without their leading receiver, the Packers will turn to Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Malik Taylor and Darrius Shepherd at […]
The Browns scored 17 points in the fourth quarter on Sunday to come from behind against the Washington Football Team and win for the second straight week. The victory also bumped their record up to 2-1 on the season, which represents a significant achievement for the team. They were last above .500 when they had […]
Philip Rivers built an impressive NFL career with the Chargers and he hit a couple of significant personal milestones in Sunday’s rout of the Jets. Rivers threw his 400th career touchdown and passed 60,000 career passing yards before giving way to Jacoby Brissett in the fourth quarter of a 36-7 laugher. Rivers is the sixth […]
Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert left in the first quarter with an ankle injury. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Goedert will miss some time with the injury. Goedert will undergo an MRI on Monday to get a definitive diagnosis and a better prognosis. Goedert limped off after a 7-yard completion on the Eagles’ second […]
The Texans took a 21-17 lead into halftime of Sunday’s game against the Steelers, but they wouldn’t put any point on the board over the final 15 minutes. That meant the 11 points the Steelers scored were enough for them to win the game and move to 3-0 on the season. The Texans are 0-3, […]
Bears coach Matt Nagy made a quarterback change on Sunday based on a gut feeling. His next move will be more deliberate. Nagy spoke to PFT by phone after Sunday’s come-from-way-behind win over the Falcons, and he addressed among other things the decision to remove starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky for backup Nick Foles. “Sometime, you […]
The Cowboys never seem to play a “normal” game. This one certainly won’t qualify as normal. The Cowboys have missed an extra point, had an extra point blocked and muffed a kickoff that led to a safety. The Dallas secondary also has four penalties. The Seahawks had a touchdown that turned into a touchback and […]
The Colts opened the scoring on Sunday by returning an interception for a touchdown and they did it again to close out the third quarter. Sam Darnold‘s pass to Chris Hogan sailed right into the waiting hands of cornerback T.J. Carrie and he sprinted 47 yards for a touchdown. The ensuing extra point made it […]
The Eagles faced a decision with 19 seconds left in overtime of Sunday’s game against the Bengals. It was fourth-and-12 yards from the Bengals’ 46-yard-line after a false start wiped out what would have been a 59-yard field goal try. The Eagles could have gone for it, tried a 64-yard field goal or punted the […]
Ron Rivera anticipated growing pains with quarterback Dwayne Haskins. So even if they all came at once, Rivera’s not planning to make a change. Via NBCSportsWashington.com, Rivera said he had no intention to replace Haskins after his quarterback turned it over four times in a loss to the Browns. “As long as he continues to […]
The 2020 Falcons have done something no team has ever done before. According to ESPN Stats and Info, they are the first team to lose two games that they led by at least 15 points in the fourth quarter. They accomplished that feat by allowing 20 points in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 30-26 loss […]
The Jets are down 10 points at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Colts, but that’s actually a step in the right direction for them. They trailed the Bills 21-3 at halftime of Week One and were behind the 49ers by the same score last week, so they’re showing some signs of progress by only […]
Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf had a touchdown . . . until he didn’t. Metcalf badly beat Cowboys rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs for what should have been a 63-yard touchdown. Instead, Metcalf put the ball in one hand and slowed as he approached the end zone. Diggs caught Metcalf — much like Don Beebe did to […]
