Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch continued to sit during the anthem.

“It’s really disheartening when everything that I was raised on was to be the best person I could be to help people that need help and the vice president of the United States is trying to confuse the message on what we’re trying to put out there. I don’t know what else to say about it.”

Around the NFL on Sunday, at least seven players from two teams knelt during the national anthem while three Miami Dolphins players and the Tennessee Titans’ Rishard Matthews remained in the tunnel or locker room for the anthem.

Eddie Lacy, RB, Seattle Seahawks: With Chris Carson’s (ankle surgery) season finished, Lacy became fantasy owners’ most popular pick from the Seahawks’ backfield in Week 5, his 50.7 percent ownership and 17.0 percent start rate in ESPN leagues easily greater than Thomas Rawls’ 34.3 and 5.6 percent and J.D. McKissic’s 9.2 and 1.9 percent. Lacy unfortunately flopped, his 3.8 PPR fantasy points worst of the three, despite his managing the most carries of the trio (nine, compared to Rawls’ eight and McKissic’s two). It was the ninth time in his 23 games played since the beginning of 2015 that Lacy finished with five PPR fantasy points or fewer.

The Lions can feel pretty confident that Cooter, still only 33, won’t pull a Sean McVay quite yet and get his own head-coaching gig in the near future. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin has seen his name come up in several head coach searches, but the Lions are lucky to have had him in place for the entire Caldwell tenure. As both are an extension of Caldwell, it’s easy to get player-friendly schemes designed to bring out the best in each individual.

There has been dysfunction in the past in play-calling and producing complementary football in Detroit. That’s no longer the case, as the plan is firmly in place to keep everyone on the same page week after week, season after season.x (7)

The Cardinals finally got going when Palmer threw a 13-yard TD pass to John Brown to cut it to 21-7.

Agholor’s TD catch was on third-and-19. He blew past safety Budda Baker, caught Wentz’s perfect pass over the shoulder and used a spin move and stiff arm to reach the end zone.

I shouldn’t have been able to make the throw, but Jason Kelce made a great block on two guys, Wentz said about his center. And then Nelly made the guy look silly.

Wentz made a mistake late in the second quarter after guiding the Eagles to the Cardinals 25. He overthrew Ertz and Antoine Bethea made a toe-tapping interception in the end zone.

The career arcs of Luck and Manning are going to be linked forever, and right now, Luck’s is following the injury-marred portion more than the perennial-contender portion.

Manning’s coronation this weekend has that element of a homecoming, a triumphant return, of course. If the NFL world was just and fair, none of that would be a factor — Manning, of all of the superstars of this era, should have worn the same uniform his entire career. If anyone should have been a Colt for life, it was him. (Then again, Johnny Unitas didn’t get to be one, but again, that’s the NFL, then, now and forever.)

But Manning got hurt, his contract became an albatross, the Colts were paralyzed as a franchise and owner Jim Irsay purged everything and everybody.

Engineers to inspect Dolphins stadium after Hurricane Irma

Structural engineers will inspect the Miami Dolphins’ stadium after a possible tornado was reported in the area during Hurricane Irma, according to multiple reports.

The team’s complex in Davie, Florida, appears to be fine in the wake of the storm.

“All we have is a visual inspection by camera right now,” a team source told The Miami Herald, which first reported the news. “We think the stadium may have [experienced] some tornado activity based on radar tracking.”

Hard Rock Stadium was constructed to survive winds from storms as strong as a Category 4 hurricane. By the time Hurricane Irma hit the South Florida area, it wasn’t as strong as that.

Marlins Park also was being assessed. Photos posted on social media showed possible storm damage to the outer facade of the retractable roof.

The Dolphins will open their season Sunday at the Los Angeles Chargers. The Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had been scheduled to open their seasons this past Sunday, but that game was postponed until Nov. 19 because of Irma.

Chicago’s ground game, led by two players with 15 games of NFL experience between them, was a revelation. 2016 Pro Bowler Jordan Howard and 2017 fourth-round pick Tarik Cohen combined for 118 rushing yards and a touchdown on only 18 carries. Cohen also emerged as the team’s top receiver on a roster devoid of true wideout talent — he had eight receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown.

Oh, and he trucked Jurrell Casey like it was nothing. Casey stands at 6’1, 305 pounds, and Lynch made him look like he was half that size.
