Just worked out, recovered the body, did some conditioning, Watson said. I watched a lot of film on myself. So, self-evaluation, trying to correct the mistakes I made the first previous weeks and just try to build on that.
Just continue to make better decisions, ball placement, make quicker reads, my pocket awareness. Just try to operate the offense as best as I can.
Focusing on the finer details is mandatory labor for any starting quarterback, but with the Seahawks (4-2) on deck at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Sunday, executing the minutiae becomes paramount. As is annually the case, the Seahawks are stout defensively with their collection of secondary Pro-Bowlers thriving on the back line of the stingiest unit in the league.
I felt it was a dirty hit and Joe’s our franchise guy, Jensen said afterward (via the Baltimore Sun). We’ve got to go out and protect him. Joe getting ‘cheap-shotted’ like that, I felt I had to do something to protect him and show him that I’ve got his back.
My peers have personal anecdotes that are powerful, Long said. As I look at those stories, it is a common sense thing for me, as an American citizen, coming from a different walk of life, [that] on an efficiency level the [system] could operate with compared to how it does now. … Disenfranchised people being able to find housing loans, jobs. [It’s] hard enough to stay ahead when you have a clean record.
Hearing the stories, it blows you away. For me, it is more of an efficiency thing. But the human element is undeniable as well.
Does Reese believe his job is in jeopardy?
That’s up to the owners of the New York Giants, he said. You can ask them what they like. I just know that I come to work every day, and I know people come in here and work their behinds off every day, and so that is a question you should ask owners.
We’ve had four weeks in a row where we’ve had almost 300 yards consecutively of total offense. … We put points up against Philadelphia. We had a couple of bad things happen. I’m not sure you can directly point those at the quarterback.”
Rivera said he’d like to believe fluke things have happened the past two weeks that have made Newton and the offense look worse than they have been.
He has thrown five interceptions against one touchdown over the past two games, after throwing six TD passes and one pick the previous two weeks in wins against the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions.
The Seahawks are still known for having the defensive side of the equation locked down. Wilson is making sure Seattle has the other side this season, too.
So you want to be a broadcaster, right? he joked during the broadcast. Collinsworth said it looked like they were broadcasting from a blimp.
Despite some positive reaction from viewers, NBC producer Fred Gaudelli thinks NFL TV networks will stick with the high, sideline camera views that have been used for decades.
We’ve long talked about using Skycam more in the live play-by-play coverage of the game, Gaudelli told Sporting News. However, what has stopped us is some of the system’s limitations.
Philadelphia evens out the stats in the 2nd quarter and the Eagles have 185 total yards at the half. Washington has 195 total yards of offense.
Redskins 10, Eagles 17. Eagles defense forces Redskins into a three-and-out and Wentz will get the ball back at the 2-minute warning. Eagles traveled 80 yards in a minute and thirty seconds to score another touchdown. Wentz throws his second touchdown pass of the night, this time to Ertz.
There’s only one team left with one loss, making it the easy choice above the rest in our Week 8 NFL Power Rankings. But several heavyweights in both the AFC and NFC have shaken off surprising early punches to get back to crowning position.
The Buccaneers’ passing game has been inconsistent with Jameis Winston healthy, and it looked like more of the same with Ryan Fitzpatrick. The latter, a former Bills starter, is likely to get the nod against his former team, but don’t expect Buffalo to be kind in the reunion. While Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy rip through the Bucs’ weak front, Tampa Bay will turned back often by Buffalo’s stampeding defense.
With Week 8 NFL daily fantasy contests starting to fill up, our experts have scouted out the players they’re locking into their DFS lineups first. From the star performers to the top values, here are our expert picks for this week in DFS football.
This year’s team was built around Johnson, as dangerous as a receiver as he is a runner; he broke his left wrist in the season opener. Maybe he’ll be back by Thanksgiving.
The addition of Adrian Peterson added some much-needed enthusiasm for the offense, but that won’t make up for the loss of Palmer. The quarterback was placed on injured reserve Thursday, which means the earliest he could return would be for the final two games of the schedule.
And that once-proud defense that had been counted on to keep Arizona in games has had its share of troubles. The Cardinals have been outscored 66-14 in the last six quarters.
The worst came last Sunday in London , where Arizona was routed by the Los Angeles Rams 33-0, the first time the Cardinals have been shut out in Arians’ five seasons as coach.
Going into Week 7, before he had to miss the game against his former team, the Titans, with an ankle injury, McCourty was Pro Football Focus’ highest-graded overall corner this season. Given he’s 30, it would merely be a short-term move for the Chiefs, but one that would also net another developmental QB project in return. Marcus Peters and McCourty would give the Chiefs one of the league’s best cornerback duos and erase a big weakness.
As much as Andy Reid and the Chiefs’ coaching staff have raved about Mahomes and his arm, Kizer’s skill set is better suited for a Smith successor. Mahomes needs to be on the field somewhere soon, and the Browns might as well take a chance on a fourth QB. It’s clear they have already lost patience with Kizer.
Wentz leads the league in touchdown passes (17), ranks tied for third in vertical touchdown passes (7), fourth in YPA (8.0) and places tied for third in vertical passing yards (971). He should be able to improve upon those totals versus a 49ers defense that ranks 28th in YPA allowed (7.9) and 27th in yards per dropback (7.1) and thus is worth his high salary. — KC Joyner
