• Bet Colts-Broncos Over 42 (-110): PFF Greenline once again leans toward the over. It’s been a rocky start to the season for primetime overs, but with everything from a modeling perspective pointing this way, we once again ride. • Bet Michael Pittman o5.5 receptions (+122): Lots of low-leverage targets incoming once again for Pittman, who […]
Among Kurt Blakeway's favorite two-team, six-point teasers in Week 5 is the San Francisco 49ers and their dominant defense led by Nick Bosa (from -6.5 to -.5) visiting Carolina, plus Minnesota (from -7 to -1) returning home after a narrow win in London to host the Chicago Bears.
In his first weekly column highlighting 5 live underdogs, Timo Riske writes that it makes sense to ride with the Bengals +3 at Baltimore in a high-variance spot between two inconsistent offenses in Week 5.
Breaking down the latest news and rumors after Week 4 of the 2022 NFL season, including Cooper Rush's future as an NFL quarterback, Jonathan Taylor's leg injury and 2023 NFL Draft quarterback prospects.
A former chair of the House Oversight Committee sent a blistering nine-page letter to the current chair, picking apart the committee's investigation into the Commanders and attempting to cast doubt on the credibility of their witnesses.
The Chiefs have missed their regular kicker, Harrison Butker, who has been out since suffering a left ankle injury in Week One. He still may not be able to get on the field this week. Via Matt McMullen of the team’s website, head coach Andy Reid told reporters Butker won’t practice on Thursday. But everyone […]
Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts may be on track to miss a game for the first time in his NFL career. Pitts missed practice on Wednesday because of a hamstring injury and reporters at the team’s facility on Thursday say that Pitts is absent again. The team’s injury report will show if he takes part […]
Before the Seahawks moved on from quarterback Russell Wilson, they got a glimpse of life without him. While Wilson missed time in 2021 with a finger injury, receiver DK Metcalf saw enough from Geno Smith to know that he could be the guy. “He had a chance to step in,” Metcalf told reporters on Wednesday. […]
Linebacker A.J. Klein’s signed to the Giants practice squad on Monday, but he won’t be making the trip to London with the team for this Sunday’s game against the Packers. When word that safety Landon Collins is signing to the Giants practice squad broke on Thursday morning, it was accompanied by news that Klein was […]
Batted balls have become a significant problem for Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield. He had five of them last week, which was a clear contributing factor in Carolina’s 26-16 loss to Arizona. And Mayfield got a bit testy with the media on Wednesday when asked what he can do in practice to correct the issue. Offensive […]
When Eagles left tackle Jordan Mailata went for tests after leaving last Sunday’s win over the Jaguars with a shoulder injury, he was preparing to hear worse news than doctors delivered this week. Mailata told reporters on Thursday that he thought the injury was a serious one after his shoulder had to be popped back […]
Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is back to practice today, after missing practice yesterday. The Buccaneers announced yesterday that Brady didn’t practice as he nursed injuries to his right shoulder and right ring finger, but those injuries didn’t stop him from practicing today. Brady looked good throwing the ball in videos posted to social media. From […]
Giants quarterback Daniel Jones‘ ankle held up well on Wednesday, so he will be back on the practice field Thursday. Head coach Brian Daboll said in a press conference that the plan is for Jones to do more work in the team’s final workout before they board a flight to London. They will practice there […]
It was a very good week. In two ways. One, I went 12-4. Two, I picked up three more games in the head-to-head competition with MDS. I prevailed once again in three of five disagreements. I went 12-4 for the week, MDS finished 9-7. For the year, I’m now 37-26-1. MDS is 30-33-1. This week, […]
In Weeks Two and Three, Amari Cooper became the first Browns receiver to have back-to-back 100 yards games since 2013. Then in Week Four, Cooper had just one 9-yard catch on four targets in the 23-20 loss to Atlanta. Cooper realizes that he won’t put up gaudy numbers in every game. And he’s willing to […]
One of the surprises of this NFL season is that Lions quarterback Jared Goff, who was traded last year along with two first-round draft picks in exchange for sending Matthew Stafford to the Rams, has actually played better than Stafford has. That has translated only to a 1-3 record, but Lions head coach Dan Campbell […]
It’s one thing for a former athlete in a non-combat sport to fight another former athlete in some other non-combat sport. It’s quite another thing for a former athlete in some other sport to fight a fighter. That’s what former NFL running back Le’Veon Bell will be doing later this month, when he boxes Uriah […]
The Packers are playing in London for the first time this week. But some of their players have already experienced going across the pond for a matchup, with varying degrees of success. One such player is cornerback Rasul Douglas, who was on the Eagles when they played the Jaguars in London back in 2018. Suffice […]
Landon Collins is returning to the Giants. Collins visited with the team earlier this week and he told Josina Anderson of CBS Sports that he is signing with them on Thursday. Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports that Collins’ second stint with the NFC East club will start with a spot on the practice squad. Raanan […]
Three straight losses have dimmed whatever optimism the Commanders might have sparked with their season-opening win and head coach Ron Rivera’s comments this week offered little reason to think that things will be improving quickly. Rivera said he understands the frustration with where the team is and how important it is to start winning games […]
The Colts are calling up a player with plenty of experience playing in mile-high conditions for Thursday’s game against the Broncos. Indianapolis will elevate running back Phillip Lindsay from the practice squad, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Media. Running back Jonathan Taylor has been ruled out for the game with an ankle injury, necessitating […]
The Packers won’t be flying to London for Sunday’s game against the Giants until this evening, but if Aaron Rodgers had his way, they would have had a little more time there. Rodgers said he understands why coach Matt LaFleur thought the team would be better off doing most of its preparation in Green Bay, […]
The Falcons are playing the Buccaneers this week, which means there’s another opportunity for head coach Arthur Smith to coach against quarterback Tom Brady. Tampa Bay defeated Atlanta in both matchups last year, Smith’s first with the Falcons. Brady completed 71 percent of his passes for 644 yards with nine touchdowns and one interception — the […]
On Wednesday, Commanders owner Daniel Snyder commissioned the submission of a strongly-worded letter to the U.S. House Oversight Committee. The nine-page letter adopts an aggressive and hostile tone, calling the ongoing Congressional investigation a “politically inspired hatchet job.” The letter apparently was inspired by the fact that the probe is close to ending, with a […]
The Ravens defense ranked last in the league in 2021 when it came to allowing passing yards and they’ve picked up right where they left off. They’ve give up 1,261 yards through the first four games of the season and that’s part of the reason why they’ve blown big leads in both of their losses […]
