The Tampa Bay Buccaneers stormed back quickly with a 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. The Bucs now move to 5-2, firing on all cylinders in every phase of the game. The Raiders drop to 3-3 as their uneven start to the season leaves a lot to be desired.
Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey returned to the practice field Monday for the first time in five weeks, but his status for Thursday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons remains in question.
Just as the 49ers' offense was rounding into form, the team has lost wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring strain) and running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (high ankle sprain) for multiple weeks due to injury.
The Rams used a bit of trickery to score the first touchdown Monday. They broke the huddle with five seconds, quickly set and snapped the ball. Bears cornerback Buster Skrine was slow getting over to Josh Reynolds, and that’s all the separation the Rams receiver needed. Reynolds made a easy 4-yard catch for a touchdown, […]
The Cowboys’ defensive currently is incapable of figuratively putting any hot sauce on opposing offenses. So the next best thing, apparently, is for the team’s defensive coordinator to literally put some in his eye. That’s happened when Mike Nolan met with reporters on Monday. He had to stop, because he got Tabasco sauce in his […]
Cris Collinsworth called the play “strange from the start.” That’s exactly what the Cardinals planned. As the the entire offense looked right, toward the team’s sideline, center Mason Cole snapped the ball to Kyler Murray. The offensive line paused a second or two as DeAndre Hopkins raced by a “napping” Quinton Dunbar. Replays showed Murray […]
On Sunday, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady connected with Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski for a six points.

According to the NFL, that ties Brady and Gronk for second on the all-time list, with 49ers […]

The Rams have him among their inactives. Higbee has 18 catches for 222 yards and three touchdowns. The Rams’ other inactives are kicker Kai Forbath, center […]
The Cowboys have plenty of pass rushers. They’re willing to part ways with one of them. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Cowboys are making it known that defensive end Everson Griffen is available in trade. Griffen has a $3 million salary and $3 million in per-game roster bonuses. This means that, with seven […]
Chargers left tackle Russell Okung left with a calf injury Sunday after playing 26 of 46 offensive snaps.

Guard John Miller (ankle) also was estimated as a […]
The Falcons did not practice Monday, but they had to put out an estimated injury report since they play the Panthers on Thursday Night Football. Receiver Julio Jones was listed as a limited participant with a hip injury. Jones has spent most of the season on the team’s injury report after injuring his hamstring in […]
At a time when some political leaders say the nation is rounding the turn on COVID-19, a football leader is making a similar boast that simply isn’t backed up by reality. “As an organization, we are on the cutting edge of beating the virus,” Raiders coach Jon Gruden claimed on Monday (via Vic Tafur of […]
Defensive end Daeshon Hall is joining the Jets. The NFL’s daily transaction wire brings word that the Jets claimed Hall off of waivers.

The Eagles are bringing four players from their injured reserve list back to practice this week and they also opened a couple of spots on the active roster. The team announced that wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway have been placed on injured reserve. Both players were injured in last Thursday’s win […]
The Cardinals will be without their leading rusher for a few weeks.

The Vikings returned from their bye week by announcing a handful of roster moves, including the addition of a pair of cornerbacks to the active roster. Minnesota claimed Chris Jones off of waivers and signed Mark Fields off of their practice squad. They also designated guard Pat Elflein and linebacker Troy Dye for return from […]
An MRI on the foot of Seahawks running back Chris Carson revealed a mid-foot sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. Carson is considered week to week, which, Rapoport adds, “is an indication he’ll miss some time.” The Seahawks have the 49ers, Bills and Rams in their next three games. Carson played only 15 snaps […]
The Broncos got quarterback Drew Lock back from a right shoulder injury for their Week 6 game against the Patriots, but Lock’s return has not resulted in a spike in success throwing the ball. Lock is 34-of-64 for 443 yards and four interceptions in the last two games. The lack of success through the air […]
Chargers tight end Virgil Green will miss several weeks with a lateral ankle sprain, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Davidson was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on October 13 and missed the last two games while waiting for the green light to return to work. It came on Monday and Davidson will be able to play against the Panthers on Thursday night. […]
The Bengals saw a pair of offensive linemen leave Sunday’s game against the Browns because of injuries and there’s some hope that left tackle Jonah Williams‘ absence won’t be an extended one. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that early indications are that his neck injury is not “overly serious.” It may be enough to […]
