Games against the lowly Dolphins and Jets may not have counted for much, but with his Week 3 performance against a team like the Los Angeles Rams, we can say with solid footing that Josh Allen might have turned the corner.

The bad news for the Cowboys is that they have lost two of their first three games of the regular season. The good news is that’s still good enough for them to have a piece of first place in the division. Washington has the same record, Philadelphia is 0-2-1 after a Week Three loss and […]

Considering that Saints coach Sean Payton was fined $100,000 for not wearing a mask in the opener, it makes sense that he’s looking to save a little money where he can.

The Cowboys protected defensive lineman Ron’Dell Carter from being signed off their practice squad in each of the first three weeks of the season, but they didn’t get the chance to do so this week.

He got a chance to play and he did great this week,” Carroll said of Griffin’s showing. Griffin was a practice squad call-up […]
Sometimes, there’s a huge difference between reading words and hearing them. Earlier today, I posted an item based on quotes published by 105.3 The Fan in Dallas from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who made comments about quarterback mobility and, in so doing, made reference to quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Dak Prescott, and Tony […]
Bills quarterback Josh Allen had a good day on Sunday against the Rams. He also had a not-so-good day. Allen drew a foul for unsportsmanlike conduct, along with a facemask penalty.

It’s official. Denver’s starting quarterback on Thursday night will be Mark Rypien. That’s what coach Vic Fangio initially said at his Tuesday press conference before correcting himself. It’s not Mark, the Super Bowl XXVI MVP. It’s Brett, Mark’s nephew. Undrafted in 2019 out of Boise State, Rypien becomes the latest in a Clevelandesque line of […]
The conflicting and inconsistent reports regarding whether or not (or not or whether) the Texans will be working out free-agent safety Earl Thomas created the impression that the workout didn’t happen because the NFL instructed all teams to pause workouts and visits due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Tennessee. That’s not the case. Per a […]
