The much-hyped AFC West matchup certainly didn’t lack drama. The Miami Dolphins defense couldn’t get off the field all day except for when it mattered most in the fourth quarter. They then shut down two straight 2-minute drills from Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills en route to a 21-19 win.
New Orleans coach Dennis Allen said Sunday that the 1-2 Saints are not considering a quarterback change despite the team's offensive struggles and inconsistency with veteran Jameis Winston under center.
Bills offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey was shown on the CBS broadcast slamming his headset, hat and tablet into the desk and crumpling the papers around him when the Bills lost their first game of the season.
Saying Justin Herbert "wanted to be out there with his teammates," Los Angeles coach Brandon Staley addressed the strategy behind playing the injured quarterback in the Chargers' surprising 38-10 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Broncos punter Corliss Waitman and 49ers punter Mitch Wishnowsky combined for 17 punts and 838 yards. The two offenses combined for 528 yards on 122 plays. It was that kind of night. Denver finally put together a touchdown drive on its 12th possession, going 80 yards in 12 plays to take an 11-10 lead with […]
Jimmy Garoppolo pulled an Orlovsky. The 49ers quarterback stepped out of the end zone, taking a safety, before throwing what would have been a pick-six. In the Lions’ winless 2008 season, Dan Orlovsky ran out of the end zone while being chased by Jared Allen. Mike Purcell was bearing down on Garoppolo on Sunday night. […]
The punters and the defenses ruled the first half of Sunday Night Football. Both teams punted five times. Five of the 49ers’ seven drives started inside the 25, and the Broncos had three of six start inside the 25. The teams combined for only 10 points as the 49ers took a 7-3 lead into the […]
The Jaguars blew out the Chargers in Los Angeles on Sunday, taking a 29-10 lead through three quarters and a 38-10 lead midway through the fourth quarter. But quarterback Justin Herbert — who’s dealing with fractured rib cartilage — was still in the game throwing passes and taking hits through the final play. Why? “That’s a good […]
The drive that ended with the Colts taking a fourth-quarter lead over the Chiefs was saved by a flag thrown on Kansas City defensive lineman Chris Jones after what should have been a sack that forced a punt. The officials penalized Jones for saying something to quarterback Matt Ryan. So what did Jones say? No […]
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is continuing to show that he’s a unique player in NFL history. Jackson had 218 passing yards and 107 rushing yards in the Ravens’ 37-26 win over the Patriots today. Those numbers are highly unusual for any other quarterback in NFL history, but par for the course for Jackson. Today was […]
The 49ers have taken the early lead on the Broncos in Sunday Night Football. After punting on their first possession, the 49ers forced the Broncos to go three-and-out. San Francisco got the ball back at their own 25. Six plays and 3:11 later, the 49ers were in the end zone. Jimmy Garoppolo had a 20-yard […]
To his credit, Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett knew that he needed help in making good decisions and making them more quickly. After a Week Two win over the Texans — a win that felt like a loss — Hackett asked for it. That’s how the process of hiring retired assistant Jerry Rosburg got started. Hackett […]
The Bears got a win on Sunday and they’re 2-1 on the season, but quarterback Justin Fields wasn’t doing much celebrating after beating the Texans. Running back Khalil Herbert and a strong second half by the defense paved the way to a 23-20 win for the Bears on a day when Fields was 8-of-17 for […]
Washington’s offense was overwhelmed by Philadelphia’s defense on Sunday, with the Eagles picking up nine sacks on Carson Wentz. After the 24-8 loss, Wentz took accountability for his part in getting sacked so many times. “Any time there’s a number like that, that is not the O-line. That is not on the O-line. I got […]
The Saints didn’t score any points until the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Panthers and quarterback Jameis Winston is playing with a transverse fracture in his back that requires him to wear extra padding, but neither of those things is leading Saints head coach Dennis Allen to consider making a quarterback change. Winston […]
The Rams have dominated the Cardinals since Sean McVay was hired as head coach in 2017, losing just once to the division rival. Add another one to the win column, as Los Angeles beat Arizona 20-12 on Sunday. The score could have been more lopsided, but Cardinals safety Budda Baker forced running back Cam Akers […]
The Falcons have their first win of the 2022 season. Grady Jarrett came up with a sack of Geno Smith on the first snap after the two minute warning to set up a long fourth down and Smith’s desperate heave on that play was picked off by safety Richie Grant. That put the finishing touches […]
It was a matchup of two legendary quarterbacks, but it was not an offensive explosion. The Packers beat the Buccaneers 14-12 on a day when Aaron Rodgers didn’t do a lot, but Tom Brady did even less. Rodgers completed 27 of 35 passes for 255 yards, with two touchdowns, one interception and one sack. Those […]
Justin Herbert played Sunday, but receiver Keenan Allen, center Corey Linsley, cornerback J.C. Jackson and tight end Donald Parham Jr. didn’t. Edge rusher Joey Bosa left in the first quarter and didn’t return, and left tackle Rashawn Slater left on the first possession of the second half. So, Herbert, playing at less than 100 percent, […]
The 49ers will be missing a key piece of their defensive line on Sunday night. Arik Armstead was listed as questionable to play in Denver because of a foot injury and the 49ers announced he will not be in the lineup against the Broncos. Running back Ty Davis-Price, tight end Tyler Kroft, offensive lineman Daniel […]
Officials ordered the Seahawks and Falcons to clear the field during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game at Lumen Field in Seattle and it appears that a drone flying near the stadium is the cause for the delay. According to the Fox broadcast, an unlicensed drone has been seen in the airspace around the stadium […]
The Buccaneers could use a few good pass catchers. There’s one who’s available for any team to sign. Tight end Rob Gronkowski. Gronk, according to JoeBucsFan.com, attended the regular-season home opener against the Packers. Per the report, there have been discussions about a potential return. The issue, however, is “sensitive” because tight end Kyle Rudolph […]
Patriots quarterback Mac Jones needed to be carried to the locker room after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens. He appeared in a lot of pain. A report soon after the game indicated X-rays of Jones’ left ankle were negative. But Mike Giardi of NFL Media now reports the Patriots fear Jones has “tendon and/or ligament […]
After the Rams’ season-opening loss to the Bills, head coach Sean McVay said running back Cam Akers needed to show an increased level of urgency. It sure seems like Akers has found it, leading the Rams to a touchdown drive late in the third quarter to put Los Angeles up 20-9. Akers had a pair […]
