In a prime-time showdown featuring two sub-.500 teams, it was the Pittsburgh Steelers who broke even in the win-loss column with a thrilling 23-20 overtime victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football.
With two minutes left in the game, Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers went on an 11-play, 96-yard drive to tie up the game against the Minnesota Vikings and send the NFC matchup into overtime. In the end, Kirk Cousins and the Vikings prevailed after a walk-off touchdown gave the Vikings a 34-28 victory.

After a tumultuous week, the Raiders went to Colorado and crushed the Broncos 34-24 on Sunday. The final score wasn’t quite indicative of how badly Las Vegas took it to Denver, as the Broncos added a cosmetic touchdown with just over a minute left in the contest. But one thing the Broncos couldn’t do was […]
The passage of time often takes the steam out of a story. It shouldn’t, but it does. Already, I find myself wondering whether and to what extent posting additional stories about the ongoing Gruden/WFT situation will prompt complaints from readers who have grown bored with the story, or who realize that the NFL will never […]
For the second time this season, the Broncos have lost a starting inside linebacker to a torn pectoral. Broncos linebacker Alexander Johnson suffered a torn pectoral on Sunday, coach Vic Fangio confirmed. “He’s got a pec injury and he’ll miss the rest of the season,” Fangio said. The Broncos previously lost starting inside linebacker Josey […]
The Seahawks reached out to free agent quarterback Cam Newton after Russell Wilson went down with a finger injury last week. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed today that the Seahawks and Newton touched base, although Carroll indicated that it was more about doing their due diligence with every available quarterback than an indication that Newton […]
The Washington Football Team was shut out in the second half of Sunday’s game against the Chiefs and quarterback Taylor Heinicke threw his third interception in the last two weeks, but head coach Ron Rivera isn’t thinking about trying something new at quarterback. Rivera was asked on Monday if he’s given any consideration to playing […]
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott injured a calf on the last play of Sunday’s overtime win over the Patriots. Prescott said after the game that he could have still played if the game had continued, and he insisted that he will be fine. The image of Prescott hobbling in a walking boot after the team returned to […]
The Browns took a beating from the Cardinals on Sunday and their ability to bounce back in Week Seven may be compromised by an offensive injury list that grew longer during the loss. Running back Kareem Hunt is going to miss time with a calf injury and head coach Kevin Stefanski said on Monday the […]
The Browns injury situation is quickly getting worse. With Nick Chubb already dealing with a calf strain, running back Kareem Hunt is now slated to miss several weeks with a calf strain. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Monday that Hunt will be out for four-to-six weeks. While head coach Kevin Stefanski didn’t quite […]
Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley will return to the team this week. Ridley will be at practice this week, head coach Arthur Smith told reporters today. The Falcons announced before their trip to London last week that Ridley wouldn’t be there because he was dealing with a personal matter. There has been no word on […]
The Giants got crushed by the Rams on Sunday but it looks like one of their defensive contributors has avoided a major injury. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, defensive lineman Danny Shelton has a pectoral strain and is considered day-to-day. The concern with a pectoral injury is usually that it’s torn, which is then […]
Two weeks after free agent linebacker Mychal Kendricks visited the 49ers, he’s ready to sign. Kendricks is in the 49ers’ facility today and is expected to sign after his physical, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The 49ers previously released Kendricks with an injury settlement after he played for them in the preseason and suffered a […]
Things are going very well for the Bengals and rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase. The fifth overall pick in the 2021 draft has played six games. With 553 receiving yards, he ranks second all time at this stage of his career. According to the NFL, only Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin had more. As a rookie in […]
What was potentially one of the best games on the weekend slate turned into a blowout and a rough day at the office for Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. A week after lighting up the Browns for 398 yards and four touchdowns, Herbert finished Sunday’s 34-6 loss to the Ravens 22-of-39 for 195 yards, a touchdown, […]
Texans head coach David Culley said last week that Tyrod Taylor is the team’s starting quarterback once he’s healthy enough to return to action, but it remains unclear when he’ll be given the green light. Culley told reporters at his Monday press conference that Taylor’s injured hamstring is doing better and classified him as “day-to-day” […]
Many will argue that wins aren’t a quarterback stat. The NFL apparently believes they are, given that achievements based on quarterback wins routinely are included in the league’s weekly summary of significant statistical developments. This week, the league pointed out this significant statistical development: Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has now won 35 games. That’s more […]
The Jets may have a couple of veteran defenders back in the lineup for their Week Seven game in New England. Jets head coach Robert Saleh said at a Monday press conference, via Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, that it “looks promising” for safety Marcus Maye and linebacker Jarrad Davis returning to action against the Patriots. […]
For the season’s first five weeks, Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had successfully avoided giveaways. He didn’t have any when Denver beat the Giants, Jaguars, and Jets to open their season. He didn’t have one in the first half of the Broncos loss to Baltimore in Week Four, though he missed the second half of that […]
Cornerback Stephon Gilmore has been a member of the Panthers for a couple of weeks, but he hasn’t been on the field with his new team yet. Gilmore was on the Patriots’ physically unable to perform list at the time of the trade and remained on it once he got to Carolina, so he’s been […]
Every year, after the first week of the regular season, I have a clear message for the fans of the 16 teams that lost in Week One. Forget about it. It’s easier said than done at the time. Here’s something that could make it a little easier, if anyone remembers this when Week One rolls […]
In hindsight, it may have been very wise for the Dolphins to not request the traditional post-London bye following their game against the Jaguars. With six days until the next game, coach Brian Flores doesn’t have to worry about possibly getting the Joe Philbin treatment from owner Stephen Ross. In year three of the Flores […]
