Why’d they both get suspended? Players rarely get suspended when they’ve also been ejected from a game. But that’s not a hard and fast rule. Case in point: Marshawn Lynch was ejected and then suspended one game for putting his hands on an official in Week 7.
Both of those topics are more pleasant than the 3-8 Colts, who dropped a 20-16 loss to the Titans on Sunday.
The Colts have blown six halftime leads this year, including against the Titans. Pagano was asked if this situation is starting to feel like Groundhog Day. His answer was a doozy.
Martellus Bennett is a New England Patriots tight end again after his time with the Green Bay Packers came to a contentious end. While Bennett’s problem with the Packers was with the team’s handling of his injury, the players in the locker room still took his departure a little personally.
But the 5-4 team is using the slight as an opportunity to come together and unify the locker room.
We can’t wait to see what celebrations the Eagles come up with for Week 13 and beyond.
That’s natural when a team is as dire of straits are they are now.While was a bit shadier to the most recent stuff, it had plenty of nostalgia for the past, beginning with the films, and .Thanks large part to Backlund and his ability to drive play whenever he’s out on the ice.Belinelli Prior to his career, played for Italy’s Lega A Virtus Bologna and Fortitudo Bologna.The key is that you probably have to sell it very quickly because now is the time when people are the most excited and the most fanatic about these kinds of things.
This one was essentially over at halftime. Stafford threw for 361 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Lions to a convincing 30-17 win over the Packers at Lambeau Field.
Detroit did not punt in a game for the first time since 1971 and held a significant time-of-possession advantage of 36:55-23:05.
It was just the second win for the Lions in the state of Wisconsin since 1991, but both wins have now come in the last three trips to Green Bay.
The Lions grabbed the momentum on their first offensive series, a drive kept alive by a Packers mistake.
“Experience makes players better in this league, but you want to make sure that they’re ready,” 49ers GM John Lynch recently told co-host Gil Brandt and me on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “That not only includes Jimmy when he’s up to speed on the offense.”
The 49ers finally got their first win at the expense of the struggling Giants. Win No. 2 probably won’t come in their next game, after their bye this week, against the Seahawks.
Thursday night’s game in Pittsburgh will air nationally on NBC and NFL Network. It’s the second of five consecutive Thursday night games that were scheduled to be televised on NBC throughout the season (not including the NFL season-opener) as part of the NFL’s “Thursday Night Football” expansion package for 2016 and ’17. NBC will also televise the Thanksgiving night game between the Giants and Redskins on Thursday, Nov. 23. CBS carried five Thursday night games earlier this year. In addition to CBS and NBC, NFL Network broadcasts every Thursday night game of the season.
NBC will utilize its “dual” SkyCam system to present a new primary viewing angle for its coverage of Titans vs. Steelers on Thursday night. The network’s SkyCam coverage received widespread acclaim from viewers when it was pressed into action due to fog during “Sunday Night Football” in Week 7.
If the NFL playoffs were beginning next weekend, the Eagles and Saints would be the top seeds in the NFC with the Steelers and Patriots getting first-round byes in the AFC.
Those four teams have emerged as obvious championship contenders, but they’re not alone. While the Eagles improved to an NFL-best 8-1 record with a 51-23 throttling of the Broncos on Sunday, the Rams (6-2) and Panthers (6-3) joined the Steelers (6-2), Patriots (6-2), Vikings (6-2) and Chiefs (6-3) as teams with at least six wins after nine weeks.
(And now he’s dealing with an un-Packers-like issue off the field.) Jamaal Williams had promise but got banged up early, and Devante Mays blew his chance Sunday with an early fumble. That’s a lot of focus on one position not to find an answer when the Packers need it most.
They at least should be more of a challenge to a Saints defense that has performed well against some … questionable opposition the last three weeks (Brett Hundley, Mitchell Trubisky, an injured Jameis Winston/Ryan Fitzpatrick).
Denver finally appears to get a stop as Brady throws a pass to James White on third down that loses 3 yards, but Denver has too many men on the field on the ensuing punt and is called for the penalty, giving the Patriots a first down.
Touchdown, Patriots. Denver’s defense has no answers for New England. The Patriots march down the field and score on an 8-yard run by Dion Lewis to increase their lead to 34-16. The Broncos only had 10 defenders on the field when Lewis ran it in.
Facing a third-and-14, Tevin Coleman catches a pass, bounces off a defender and gains 15 yards to keep Atlanta’s drive alive.
