the Bengals are a game out of first in the AFC North.

Gase noted the crowd also lobbied unsuccessfully for Moore during a victory over Tennessee last year, when Ryan Tannehill was the struggling starter.

“That’s fine,” Gase said. “I’ll make the decision about the quarterback. We’re not going to take public polls.”

Cutler — playing his first game in Miami as the Dolphins’ QB — acknowledged he heard the chants too.

“I didn’t know what they were saying, and I don’t think anyone was going to tell me what they were saying,” Cutler said. “I just kept going about my business.”

Despite an offense that has scored three touchdowns in four games, the Dolphins (2-2) climbed to .500. The Titans (2-3) lost for the second week in a row.

“I understand the ups-and-downs,” Green said. “You know me, I’m pretty level all the time. The drops hurt, but you just have to erase everything.”

After losing their first three games, the Bengals (2-3) salvaged their season by getting the ball to their stars at decisive moments. Green’s 47-yard catch set up a 5-yard touchdown run by Joe Mixon that put Cincinnati ahead to stay in the fourth quarter.

Combined with Pittsburgh’s 30-9 loss to Jacksonville on Sunday, the Bengals are a game out of first in the AFC North.

The Bills (3-2) got their season off to an encouraging start by relying heavily on kicker Stephen Hauschka and a defense that led the league in stinginess, allowing only 13.5 points per game through the first four. The combination wasn’t enough this time as Buffalo’s depleted offense failed to take advantage of Cincinnati’s three turnovers.x (8)

J.J. Watt’s hurricane relief fundraiser ends with more than $37 million raised

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt began the Hurricane Harvey relief effort with a goal of raising $200,000. He raised more than $37 million.

Watt closed his fundraising effort Friday, overwhelmed by the generosity of those who donated to assist the victims of the devastating storm that made landfall around Houston Aug. 25.

While his national anthem protests and subsequent inability to find NFL employment have generated most of the conversation, the former 49ers QB has now given $900,000 to charitable organizations since last season as part of his pledge to donate $1 million to a variety of causes.

Though Kaepernick does not currently have a job, the NFLPA pointedly noted in a news release that anyone who is a dues-paying member of the organization and on and NFL roster “or actively seeking employment as a free agent” is eligible for the award.

As part of the recognition, the NFLPA will make a $10,000 donation to Kaepernick’s foundation or a charity of his choice.

Texans star J.J. Watt took the honor at the end of the preseason last week for his Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Since 1994, kickers have gone 15-for-71 on attempts between 60 and 65 yards. With the game on the line in the fourth quarter and overtime, those same kickers were 4-of-21 before injury fill-in Jake Elliott atoned for an earlier miss from 52 by hitting a 61-yarder to beat the division rival Giants and cap a thrilling second half.

She got her doctorate from Ohio State. When you’re 5 years old and you’re seeing your dad have a gun pointed at his head because he looks suspicious in the neighborhood at 6 a.m. because he’s dropping his son off at a babysitter, it’s not about race. It’s not about black and white, it’s about right and wrong.

Lone Steeler stood on field for anthem as rest of team stayed in locker room

In the biggest development — so far — on a surreal Sunday of protests around the NFL, the Steelers opted to remain in the locker room during the national anthem prior to their game against the Bears at Soldier Field.

All except for one Steeler, that is. Offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a U.S. Army Ranger who won a Bronze Star during three tours in Afghanistan, stood by himself outside the Steelers locker room tunnel, hand over his heart.

At the end of each positional section, there is a subgroup of players, “Players off game status injury report.” The probable tag no longer exists, so players who would have been listed as probable in previous years are now simply removed from the report. This means there will be players who appear in the practice injury reports during the week but will not appear on the game status report Friday, since they are presumed active for game day. They are included in this blog so that fantasy owners can see where players who were on the practice injury report during the week have been upgraded to in advance of the games.

At the end, key fantasy players listed Friday as “Out” for the week’s games will appear as a group.

The Rams and the 49ers played on Thursday night (shoutout to those who started Carlos Hyde or Sammy Watkins in their fantasy leagues), but everyone else is playing this weekend and their fantasy-relevant injured players are represented here.

NFL picks against the spread 2017, Week 2: Browns, Bills are sneaky underdog bets

We have a full slate of games this week. Though, I’d like to ask the NFL to have the Texans-Bengals game from Thursday night stricken from the record. We’re actually worse off having seen that.

The Bengals looked like they might actually score a touchdown at one point (they didn’t) until Tyler Eifert basically ruined it.

Eifert, who was wide open in the back of the end zone, was calling for the football. Except he was calling for it while he was out of bounds — way out of bounds:

He established himself back in, but you can’t be the first to touch the football after that, so he was called for illegal touching. The Bengals were forced to settle for a field goal because of it.

Deshaun Watson was making his first NFL start on Thursday, and Geno Atkins gave him a taste of what getting swept off your feet by a two-time All-Pro feels like:

So much in recent times that it makes the two franchises seem closer than their 900-plus mile separation.
Mike Daniels is questionable with a hip injury, but expected to play after a dominant performance against the Seahawks.

The Packers listed seven players on this week’s Friday injury report, four of whom are essentially starters and another two who play key backup roles. Joining Bulaga with the questionable tag are a pair of the team’s brightest stars in the trenches: left tackle David Bakhtiari and defensive tackle Mike Daniels.

Meanwhile, Daniels had a hip issue flare up in Thursday’s practice, limiting him in practice. However, despite his questionable tag, he expressed confidence in his availability on Twitter Thursday night.

Tom Savage shouldn’t be benched for his terrible play, says his agent

Tom Savage was benched midway through an abysmal performance against the Jaguars in Week 1. Deshaun Watson was named the starter for Week 2, and Savage’s agent thinks the team is being too hasty in taking the starting role from his client.

“I wanted to defend Tom and this was my choice,” agent Neil Schwartz said on PFT Live. “I spoke to Tom and Tom was OK with and comfortable and I spoke to my partner, and someone I felt had to defend Tom. And I didn’t feel that the coaching staff defended Tom or defended his performance and I would love to sit down and watch the film with Bill O’Brien and go through every single play and tell me why are you benching him after 31 plays?”

It’s worth noting that their best player, Odell Beckham Jr., missed the game with an injury. Beckham wasn’t expected to play, but his status for Monday is still up in the air. He practiced earlier in the week but was a limited participant.

Detroit is playing in the competitive NFC North, and the Lions have a win on their record going into Week 2. Matthew Stafford threw four touchdown passes against the Arizona Cardinals, and the Lions had 82 yards rushing in their 35-23 victory. Stafford continues to look like one of the best quarterbacks in the league from a pure production standpoint.

The Lions’ victory came after they trailed the Cardinals. Stafford, though, is great in comeback situations, orchestrating 27 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime since 2011. He can never be counted out, and neither can the Lions.

NFL investigating domestic violence accusation against line judge

The NFL is investigating an accusation of domestic violence against line judge Carl Johnson, who was once the league’s vice president of officiating.

“The matter is under review under of the league’s personal conduct policy,” a league spokesman said Tuesday.

All league employees are subject to discipline under the league’s domestic violence policy, which establishes a six-game suspension for a first offense. Mitigating circumstances can increase or decrease that game total.

Bolles left Sports Authority Field at Mile High after the Broncos’ 42-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday with a walking boot on his left foot/ankle and using crutches.

Bolles suffered the injury with 8 minutes, 40 seconds left in the third quarter during a 5-yard run by Jamaal Charles.

Game video showed that Cowboys defensive tackle Brian Price fell on Bolles’ leg during the play, as the Broncos were in the 13th play of a 15-play touchdown drive. Donald Stephenson initially replaced Bolles to close out the possession, but Allen Barbre finished out the remainder of the game at left tackle after the touchdown drive.

Bolles stayed down on the ground following the play as the Broncos’ medical staff examined the leg. An emotional Bolles was taken to the locker room on a cart and raised his arms to acknowledge the crowd.

Bolles was the Broncos’ first-round pick in this past April’s draft and had been working with the starters since training camp opened in July. He played every snap in the team’s opening week win over the Los Angeles Chargers and had played every snap until his injury Sunday.

The Broncos rushed for 178 yards in the game, including 118 yards rushing from C.J. Anderson.

Linebacker Mason Foster said he was surprised by the news.

“Definitely. He’s a great player, a great person,” Foster said. “People have lives outside of football, and sometimes you have to handle that first. Hopefully he gets that resolved and comes back and helps us win games this year. I’ll try to talk to him later on, tell him I’m praying for him, but I’m going straight to the iPad and watching Philly.”

“You never know what’s in anyone’s life, so you make sure that’s fine first and foremost before you get back to your job,” Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said.

Kirk Cousins isn’t on the level of a Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers, but he threw for almost 5,000 yards last season and had 25 touchdowns against 12 interceptions. Cousins is likely to be the next signal caller to reset the quarterback market.

Cousins is in the second season of playing under the franchise tag for the Washington NFL team, and he’s making over $23 million this year. Barring any significant regression, he’ll hit free agency as the top quarterback option on the market.

He has been linked to the San Francisco 49ers and his former offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, who coaxed an MVP-level performance out of Matt Ryan as the Falcons’ offensive coordinator in 2016. The Niners should have a good amount of cap space to work with next season and can just back a Brinks truck up for Cousins if a bidding war ensues, and it probably will.
