Adam Vinatieri kicked three field goals for the Colts and moved into a tie with Gary Anderson for second-most points in NFL history with 2,434.
Caesars Palace sportsbooks reported having “significant” parlay liability on Pittsburgh and ended up taking a six-figure loss on the NFL on Sunday, director of specialty games Frank Kunovic told ESPN. CG Technology and MGM were among the other bookmakers that suffered a small losing Sunday.
While holding the lead in the second half, offensive coordinator John Morton dialed up seven runs to eight pass attempts on 15 plays over three drives. It was only after that lead evaporated did the pass-run ratio tilt to 13-2 (not including spikes), with the final drive of the game consisting of six passes as Josh McCown tried to rally the Jets with just over a minute remaining.
A frustrated Forte believes running the ball more in the rain would have been the correct call.
“You got a wet ball out there,” Forte said. “It’s rainy. It wasn’t like a light drizzle. It was really really raining. If I was a coordinator… (and) I’m obviously biased because I’m a running back — raining like that, yeah, you would think that we would run it more than we did. But like I said, every game is different. He’s calling the plays. He has to call what he sees out there.”
Lineman Carlos Dunlap batted Jacoby Brissett’s pass into the air, grabbed the ball and ran 16 yards to the end zone for a game-turning touchdown Sunday, rallying the Cincinnati Bengals to a 24-23 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
The defensive end excels at swatting away passes — he led NFL linemen last season — and changed the game with his third career score.
The last pass of the game for Bortles came in the middle of the third quarter before the pair of pick sixes allowed the team to focus entirely on the run.
Jacksonville ended the game with 18 consecutive running plays, milking clock and grinding away with Leonard Fournette, who had 181 rushing yards and two touchdowns, including a 90-yard burst in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.
The Steelers and Jaguars are both 3-2 after Sunday, and both are difficult to figure out.
When Jacksonville is clicking, it has a defense that’s a nightmare to score on and an offense that can grind away with Fournette. But then it can also be a team that struggles to move the ball with Bortles and makes egregious errors.
Pittsburgh earned impressive wins over the Vikings and Ravens but now has bad losses to the Bears and Jaguars on the record.
It’s impossible to pick just one, especially when there are 14 players — including Aaron Rodgers and his broken collarbone — on this week’s injury report. But the focus should be on the offensive line, given how important it’ll be to new starting quarterback Brett Hundley’s success. Of the three starters who dropped out of last Sunday’s loss at Minnesota, left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (concussion) at least practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.
Michael Floyd (hamstring) joined Stefon Diggs (groin) on the injury report this week, leaving Minnesota with five active receivers in practice. After missing practice last week and Sunday’s game, Diggs remains the biggest injury concern despite Minnesota having three other non-participants on Wednesday: Sam Bradford (knee), Nick Easton (calf) and Anthony Barr (concussion/ankle).
The New York Giants are 0-6 straight up and 2-4 against the spread over their last six games. With plenty of bad news on the injury front, the Giants will have a hard time trying to earn their first win of the season this Sunday night against the Denver Broncos.
Twitter made an attempt to keep the games, with Facebook and YouTube trying to pry the rights away.
Two other teams that have exceeded preseason expectations to this point will clash when the Los Angeles Rams visit the Jacksonville Jaguars (-2.5). Both teams are off to 3-2 SU starts, with Jacksonville sitting atop the AFC South and Los Angeles tied with Seattle for the top spot in the NFC West.
The road team is 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS in the last four meetings between the Rams and Jaguars.
Ben Roethlisberger’s confidence seemed shaken in a post-game press conference after his five-interception performance against Jacksonville last week. The veteran quarterback will get a much tougher test this week when his Steelers visit the Kansas City Chiefs (-4), who are off to a perfect 5-0 SU and ATS start to the 2017 season.
The teams traded punts on the first four possessions, with Minnesota kickers Ryan Longwell and Chris Kluwe doing their best to kick away from the All Pro Hester. The week before, the Packers neutralized Hester on kickoffs, holding him to zero returns with a mix of squibs and pooch kicks.
But keeping the ball from Hester is easier said than done, as Kluwe acknowledged while watching a Bears-Vikings game in 2013:
Goddammit announcers. You can’t say “Why kick it to Hester” on a fucking kickoff. If you kick it short, they’re two passes away from a FG.
J.J. Watt went down with an injury in the first quarter of Sunday Night Football. Watt was rushing Alex Smith and his leg twisted. He left NRG Stadium in an ambulance, where doctors confirmed Watt has a tibial plateau fracture. Watt will miss the rest of the 2017 season.
“He’ll continue to rehab. We’re just going to shut down the throwing right now to get this thing calmed back down.”
Peterson signed with the Saints after visiting several teams. New Orleans already had Mark Ingram, and they selected Alvin Kamara in the third round of the 2017 draft. Ingram and Kamara are well-rounded and function as rushers, blockers, and receivers. Peterson wasn’t an ideal fit for the scheme, and the result was a much smaller role than he had anticipated with the Saints.
He had 27 carries for just 81 yards in his four games with the Saints.
The Cardinals needed a running back after losing David Johnson to a wrist injury. Peterson wasn’t a factor in New Orleans and was happy to land with a team that needed someone to run the rock. But Johnson could return after Thanksgiving, and Peterson might once again find himself lower on the depth chart than he’d like to be. For now, though, he’s taking advantage of the opportunity to rebound in Arizona.
The defensive backfield has changed more drastically. Rookie corner Marshon Lattimore has been promising and locked down one starting spot, although he missed the Panthers game because of a concussion. Ken Crawley stepped in and excelled, and when starting corner P.J. Williams was benched against the Dolphins for disciplinary reasons, Crawley kept his job alongside Lattimore in the lineup. Crawley had some iffy moments against Golden Tate last week, but he’s now an every-down cornerback. When Breaux comes back, the Saints could finally have a trio of promising young cornerbacks to build around.
The Red Sox ball girl was called for interference when she tried to field Gattis’ fair-ball grounder down the third base line in the eighth. Instead of a potential double, Gattis was sent back to first; pinch-runner Cameron Maybin took second on a wild pitch and scored the go-ahead run on Reddick’s single.
Arrieta dropped his only decision of the season to the Nationals and is 1-2 with a 5.48 ERA in nine career starts against Washington.
With his team’s season on the line, Nationals manager Dusty Baker will stick with scheduled Game 4 starter Tanner Roark. Baker said earlier Tuesday that he would consider sending Stephen Strasburg to the mound if the game was pushed to Wednesday.
Strasburg held the Cubs without a hit for 5 2/3 innings in Game 1 before Chicago pulled out a 3-0 victory.
But after Tuesday’s game was pushed back to Wednesday, Baker announced Roark will remain the Game 4 starter. Asked about Strasburg’s availability — even out of the bullpen — Baker said Strasburg was “under the weather” and cited a change in weather, air conditioning in the team hotel and mold in Chicago.
Baker said Strasburg will start Game 5 if the series shifts back to Washington.
Those on the road and on the rise in Week 5 included Alex Smith, Kelvin Benjamin and Leonard Fournette. Players who couldn’t manage to inspire the fans already predisposed to liking them over the past seven days included Amari Cooper, Jameis Winston, Mike Evans and Dez Bryant. The specialists have detected something troubling here, folks. Feel free to get a second opinion, but I wouldn’t be so quick to ignore the situation.
“It’s what we work all offseason for. Ups and downs, all around the country,” Sale said. “This is what we live for.”
With that said, James’ 17 points still led the Cavs and he shot 8-for-13 from the floor with 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block.
“He hasn’t played in I don’t know how long,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “Of course his rhythm is going to be off. His passing, timing. That’s just part of the game. But I’m not worried about Bron. He’ll be OK. Tonight is his first night playing in a long time. He’ll get his rhythm. I’m not too worried about that.”
Cleveland had little continuity as a group, however, and the Cavaliers could often be seen pointing and gesturing to one another in the middle of plays to direct people where to go.
“I had to do something,” said Judge, who is 0 for 10 with eight strikeouts in the series. “I wasn’t obviously making any contact at the plate, so you’ve got to make an impact on the game somehow and luckily I was able to do it on defense.”
On the night they raised their Western Conference championship banner, the Predators blew a 3-0 lead as the Flyers scored five straight goals.
But then Forsberg scored his first of the game 50 seconds after the Flyers took a 5-3 lead, and Scott Hartnell jammed in his second goal tying it with 1:17 left on a 5-on-3 that was actually 6-on-3 with Rinne pulled. When Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol challenged for offside and lost, the Predators had the man advantage, and Forsberg scored the winning goal top shelf.
Hakstol was surprised he lost the replay review.
The Chiefs currently have it on their own 37 with 1:30 to play in the quarter.
Pittsburgh’s drive is stalled after a holding penalty and the Steelers punt it back to Kansas City. Le’Veon Bell is up to 117 rushing yards for the Steelers, while Kansas City has recorded just 25 yards of total offense.
Kansas City moves the chains once, but Tyreek Hill drops a third down pass and the Chiefs punt again. The Steelers will start their drive at their own 10 with 8:28 to play in the third quarter.
Chiefs running back Charcandrick West is currently being evaluated for a concussion.
Peterson admitted last week that he was frustrated with his ever-shrinking role in New Orleans because of “the type of player that I am, knowing I have so much left in the tank.”
But he also continued to insist there was no animosity between him and Payton — and that the infamous sideline glare that was captured on video in Week 1 was overblown and not what it looked like.
The players seem to have some built-in advantages in such a dispute. Unlike the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, the NFL CBA does not specifically require players to stand for the anthem. There is, however, a section in the NFL Game Operations Manual that mentions that players “should stand at attention, hold helmets in their left hand and refrain from talking.” And commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to teams on Tuesday reiterating the language.
But Dombrowski also has hired only two managers over the last 12 seasons. Jim Leyland has insisted he isn’t coming out of retirement, while Brad Ausmus was recently fired after a last-place finish with the Detroit Tigers. It’s unclear whether former Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek could be a candidate. Varitek works for the team in an advisory capacity but has never managed.
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.
“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.
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.
