PFF's Timo Riske dives into the PFF data to explain why Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy made the right decision by calling for a 2-point conversion down by 9 against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2.
New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones lands on PFF's list of second-year breakout players, while Washington quarterback Dwayne Haskins finds himself among the players who look to have taken a step back.
The Lions struggled to contain Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones in Week 2, which makes Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake a strong option in Week 3 DFS tournaments against Detroit's defense.
It may seem a bit premature to talk extension, but at a certain point, the Patriots will be doing themselves a favor by locking Cam Newton up before his price jumps. If the two sides do begin negotiating, here's what a potential deal could look like.
While Justin Herbert showed plenty of promise in his rookie debut, he isn't worth starting in Week 3. Meanwhile, the once fantasy-irrelevant Mitchell Trubisky is worth starting against the Atlanta Falcons.
Highlighting the best and worst trench matchups ahead of Week 3. The Bears' offensive line is set to dominate its matchup with the Atlanta Falcons' pass rush, while the Packers' Sunday Night Football clash with the Saints will make for interesting viewing.
The New Orleans Saints won't have star wide receiver Michael Thomas available for Sunday night's game against the Green Bay Packers as Thomas has been ruled out for a second straight week due to a high ankle sprain.
The Cowboys will have Aldon Smith against the Seahawks. The Seahawks won’t have Josh Gordon against the Cowboys. While Smith gained reinstatement from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory conditional reinstatement, the Seahawks have no idea when the league will allow Gordon to return. “I don’t know,” Carroll said, via Gregg […]
Thursday night’s performance from Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was unsurprising given that it was so surprising. That’s been the pattern in recent years for Fitzpatrick. Periodically, he transmogrifies into Fitzmagic. It usually happens when least expected. Then, once everyone climbs aboard the did-you-know-he-went-to-Harvard? train, the switch toggles back to Fitztragic. The season began that way, […]
With Jalen Ramsey coming to town, Bills quarterback Josh Allen this week downplayed Ramsey’s “trash” comment about Allen. Much has changed since Ramsey made his critique of Allen and several other NFL quarterbacks during an interview with GQ in 2018. Allen, the seventh overall choice that season, hadn’t even taken his first snap. Ramsey still […]
Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. believes it’s not going to be the type of season that results in the generation of big numbers. Browns coach Kevin Stefanski says it’s way too early to draw those kinds of conclusions. “Obviously, it is about the team, but I will tell you, we are only two games in […]
Chiefs receiver Sammy Watkins returned to practice Friday. He was limited. Watkins took a shot to the head from Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman during last Sunday’s overtime win. He is in concussion protocol and also has a neck injury. Watkins has eight catches for 93 yards and a touchdown through the first two weeks of […]
The 0-2 Lions could use a spark. Maybe they’ll get one from receiver Kenny Golladay. Golladay missed the first two games of the year with a hamstring injury. He practiced all week on a limited basis, and he’s listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at Arizona. “God willing, I’m going to try everything in my […]
Week Three of the 2020 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Dolphins and it continues with 14 more games on Sunday, which means that the 28 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday. The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their final […]
The Ravens won’t have as big of a home-field advantage as they normally would, but they will have some fans at Monday night’s game. The team announced it will host 250 immediate family members of players, coaches and front office staff. That’s the number of spectators permitted by a recently issued order of Maryland’s Department […]
The Rams entered the week with a couple of injury issues in their offensive backfield and they’ve resolved themselves in different ways. Cam Akers missed his third straight day of practice with injured ribs on Friday. He was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Bills a short time later. Malcolm Brown had surgery to […]
There was never much sign that Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas would be in the lineup against the Packers on Sunday night and official word that he won’t play came on Friday afternoon. A high-ankle sprain will keep Thomas out of the lineup for the second straight week. Thomas has not practiced since suffering the […]
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said on Friday that wide receiver Davante Adams was “probably doubtful” to play against the Saints on Sunday. Adams is now definitely doubtful. That’s how he’s been listed on the Packers injury report as a result of the hamstring injury that knocked him out of last week’s win over the […]
If you’ve ever dreamed of playing wide receiver in the NFL, it’s probably worth giving the Jets a call right now. The team’s final injury report of the week shows that Braxton Berrios was added to the long list of ailing Jets as a limited participant in Friday’s practice. He’s listed as questionable to face […]
NFL teams will continue pumping fake crowd noise into their stadiums on Sunday, but some of the rules governing that noise have been revised. The league is now allowing stadiums to play fake crowd noise at levels up to 80 decibels, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The decibel level must be submitted to the […]
Ravens defensive coordinator Don “Wink” Martindale has coached against Patrick Mahomes in the past and he has been preparing to face Mahomes this week, which has left him with some strong opinions about the Chiefs quarterback. One of them has to do with the contract extension that Mahomes signed with the Chiefs earlier this year. […]
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said Friday morning the team won’t know Tyron Smith‘s status until after Saturday’s workout. The left tackle missed last week’s game with a neck injury and is questionable for this week’s game at Seattle. Smith has not played a full 16-game season since 2015. Brandon Knight replaced him Sunday. Defensive end […]
The Patriots will be without one of their most versatile and valuable offensive parts again this week. Via Phil Perry of NBCSportsBoston.com, running back James White is listed as out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. White didn’t play last week, after his father died in a car accident in Florida. The Patriots also ruled […]
Falcons receiver Julio Jones did not practice this week. He might not play Sunday. The Falcons list Jones as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bears. Jones caught nine passes for 157 yards in the opener, but his hamstring limited him in the three days of practice leading up to the Week Two game against […]
The Texans added receiver Kenny Stills to their injury report Friday with an illness. They list him as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. Stills did practice on a limited basis Friday. Running back Duke Johnson was limited all week and is questionable. He sprained his left ankle in Week One and missed last […]
Wide receiver Henry Ruggs won’t be with the Raiders when they take the field against the Patriots on Sunday. Ruggs has been ruled out of Sunday’s game due to knee and hamstring injuries. Ruggs opened the week as a full participant with only the knee issue noted, but dropped to limited participation while adding the […]
Adrian Peterson has played in a lot of games where he’s been the focal point of the offense while spending the majority of the game on the field. That hasn’t been the case in the first two games of his Lions tenure. Peterson has played 39 offensive snaps so far this season, which accounts for […]
