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.
When Griffin arrived at Staples Center for his free-agency pitch meeting on July 1, he found the Clippers had erected something of a maze for him with temporary walls. Griffin walked his 3-year-old son, Ford, through the art gallery-style corridors, and found photos hanging at each turn: Griffin on his green Huffy bike with his brother, Taylor, when they were kids; Griffin playing in college; Griffin as a Clipper.
Ballmer stocked the front office with smart new hires — including Jerry West. They weren’t well-positioned to rebuild, anyway; Rivers had frittered away too many draft picks, and whiffed on fringe signings. They would build again around Griffin — and maybe Jordan.
That gave Watson 168.86 fantasy points for the season through seven games, the most by any quarterback through that many contests since at least 1950. In fact, only Eric Dickerson (200.5) and Marcus Allen (174.38) had more using PPR scoring through their first seven career games among players at any position during that time span, and Dickerson (176.5) was the only one with more using non-PPR scoring.
There are only so many shots to be created for this squad, overachievers as they are. The Heat have only one rotation player with a positive net rating — Josh Richardson at plus-0.1. At No. 27 in rebounding rate, the Heat desperately need Hassan Whiteside to return from a knee injury. He returned to practice on Friday, but was a no-go in Saturday night’s loss to Boston.
The good news for the Hornets? A league-average defense last season has vaulted to seventh with the arrival of Dwight Howard from Atlanta. The bad news? A league-average offense last season has tumbled to 21st. Now Charlotte faces a week when they’ll play three tough road games at Memphis, San Antonio and Minnesota, along with a home date against Team Giannis.
He gave Bellinger’s rookie season a Level Nine rating — one of 47 such seasons in major league history. James wrote that 30 percent of those players are in the Hall of Fame or nearly certain to get there.
