Jaguars QB Luton throws 4 interceptions in loss to undefeated Steelers
The undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers came into Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a defense that leads the NFL in sacks and turnovers. The Steelers intercepted Jacksonville’s rookie quarterback JAKE LUTON… More 4 times on Sunday while sacking him twice. Pittsburgh will head into Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game against the Baltimore Ravens remaining atop the NFL in both categories. The Jaguars, meanwhile, are longing for the days of Minshew Mania after Luton’s performance on Sunday. Less

Browns defense dominates vs. Eagles
With star defensive end MYLES GARRETT at home with a case of Covid-19, his teammates made him proud in Sunday’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Browns defense forced 3 takeaways… More in the game, including a 50-yard pick-six that started the scoring against the Eagles. The defense also sacked Philadelphia quarterback CARSON WENTZ 5 times in the game. Less

Depleted Panthers shut out Lions
The Carolina Panthers were without starting quarterback TEDDY BRIDGEWATER (knee) and starting running back CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY (shoulder) for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. Despite the depleted lineup, the Panthers managed… More a shutout against the Lions. Backup quarterback P.J. WALKER isn’t going to help win any fantasy championships, but backup running back MIKE DAVIS was his usual reliable self against the Lions. Less
Bengals QB Burrow carted off with lower leg injury
Cincinnati Bengals rookie quarterback JOE BURROW was carted off the field in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team with a left knee injury that could end… More his season. Burrow indicated via social media after the game that he was done for 2020. In a possible sign of things to come, the Bengals offense and defense were lifeless after the Burrow injury as Washington scored 13 unanswered points. Second-year quarterback RYAN FINLEY replaced Burrow under center and will likely continue to do so moving forward. Less

Teddy Bridgewater is OUT (we think)
A few minutes ago came a round of reports that Panthers QB TEDDY BRIDGEWATER had cleared his pregame hurdles and would be active today. But ESPN's Adam Schefter then reported that… More the team decided to deactivate Bridgewater after all. So probably: Bridgewater is OUT today, P.J. WALKER will start vs. Detroit, and you should at least consider sitting the Panthers' pass-catchers. Less
Change coming to New England backfield
The Patriots are in a very good place to get their running game up to full speed today, at an atrocious Houston defense, but we can't be entirely certain what that… More full-speed running game will look like. DAMIEN HARRIS will reportedly play through ankle and chest injuries, but he'll have new (old) competition for touches after the team activated SONY MICHEL off of IR on Saturday. In other words, a good spot for the team may not be a slam-dunk for any of its players individually. If you have to start a Patriots back, we wish you luck in picking the right one. Less
Hardman up, Watkins down for KC
Kansas City will have WR MECOLE HARDMAN for tonight's game at Las Vegas, but not WR SAMMY WATKINS. Hardman was officially activated Saturday after clearing the league's Covid-19 protocols; Watkins has been ruled out with calf and hamstring injuries.
Brees has more rib fractures than we knew
In a story that keeps sounding worse even if it isn't, the latest assessments of New Orleans QB DREW BREES revealed that he has more than twice as many rib fractures… More as was previously understood -- up from a total of five to a total of eleven. Brees's collapsed lung is said to be recovering nicely, but the consensus seems to be that he will take time to allow that, and the ribs, and a shoulder injury, to heal, with a return to action possible around Week 15 (vs. Kansas City, December 20). Meanwhile HC Sean Payton's decision to start TAYSOM HILL at quarterback ahead of JAMEIS WINSTON was reportedly not uniformly popular within the organization, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Payton is anxious to know whether the 30-year-old Hill can be his quarterback of the future. Hill's audition begins in a couple of hours vs. Atlanta. Less
Bridgewater wants to play, will test knee
Carolina QB TEDDY BRIDGEWATER reportedly wants to play today vs. Detroit, and will test his sprained knee in pregame warmups prior to a final determination on his status being made. One… More good sign: Bridgewater handled an increasing share of the practice work as this week progressed. P.J. WALKER would start if Bridgewater were unable to go. Less
Lock, Fant should play for Broncos
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Denver QB DREW LOCK will play today vs. Miami despite what has been described as a painful muscle strain -- and Lock should have one of his best weapons available, as TE NOAH FANT is also expected to play through his rib injury.
Stafford a go for Lions
He won't have a couple of his biggest weapons (D'Andre Swift is out with a concussion, Kenny Golladay with the hip injury he suffered several weeks back), but Detroit QB MATTHEW… More STAFFORD is expected to play today, per reports. The Lions are at Carolina. Stafford's injury is to the thumb on his throwing hand, which does worry us in the abstract, but he has played at less than 100 percent many times before. Less
Irv Smith Jr. should play for Vikes
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Minnesota TE IRV SMITH JR., out last week with a groin injury, will suit up today vs. Dallas.
Week 11 gets the Covid all-clear
The NFL is not without its share of Covid-19 positives -- Cleveland superstar Myles Garrett will miss today's game after he began suffering virus symptoms on Wednesday -- but once again… More the league has had a clean round of Sunday morning tests. As of this writing, all Week 11 games are on track to proceed as scheduled. Less
Seahawks QB Wilson returns to form on Thursday Night Football
Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON had 10 turnovers in the Seahawks three losses, struggling in the past two games after a fast start to the season. Wilson was back to his early… More season form in Thursday night’s win over the Arizona Cardinals, throwing for 2 touchdowns and finishing the game with no turnovers. Less
