Would Lions’ overturned TD have stood if they had snapped the ball sooner for the PAT attempt?

If the Lions thought the score was already confirmed, there was not really any reason to rush the snap. Unfortunately for them, it wasn’t confirmed.

The Lions really needed seven points instead of a field goal. They’re trailing the Vikings 27-13.

You might not know it, but the Chargers have one of the best pass-rushing duos in the league with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. Together, they have a total of 19 sacks. Bosa is looking for his seventh consecutive game with a sack. Ingram returned a fumble for a touchdown last week.

Dallas started the season with one of the best offensive lines in the game, but injuries have taken a toll lately. Left tackle Tyron Smith missed the last two games with a groin injury. During that two-game stretch, quarterback Dak Prescott was sacked 12 times. He also tossed a trio of picks last week in the face of a relentless Eagles pass rush and had the worst game of his career by any measure.

Amari Cooper left Broncos vs. Raiders in the second quarter after taking a brutal hit from safety Darian Stewart. Cooper was initially knocked unconscious.

Cooper has been ruled out for the Raiders’ Week 13 matchup against the Giants. Broncos safety Darian Stewart was fined $24,309 for the hit that concussed Cooper, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

The team confirmed that Cooper has a concussion and he remained out for the rest of the game.

Medical staff brought out the cart for Cooper, but he was able to get up and walk off the field under his own power.

Stewart was flagged for unnecessary roughness. But it wasn’t a helmet-to-helmet hit. It looks more like incidental contact.dodgers_001

Chiefs vs. Cowboys: Score, results, highlights from Week 9 game in Dallas

Dec

News that Ezekiel Elliot would be able to play in Sunday’s Chiefs-Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium wasn’t an ideal development for Kansas City. The Cowboys running back’s NFL-imposed suspension was delayed at least one more week, meaning the Chiefs, who on defense entered Week 9 allowing 4.9 yards per rush (29th in the NFL) would have to deal with the league’s No. 3 rusher.

“I mean I’m going to go with my guy. I’m going to go with Peyton [Manning] but I mean Tom Brady is the GOAT.”

Brady is just 6-6 against the Broncos in the regular season, including a 3-4 mark in Denver, and 1-3 in the postseason, so maybe that’s why Brady called Miller “a nightmare” on Wednesday. It’s a mutual sign of respect for Miller.

“Brady is playing until 40 [and] it looks like he can play until 45,” Miller said. “Some other guys they can’t make it that many years. It’s all different. That all falls into the equation of Tom Brady being the GOAT.”

“I know he was in here (Tuesday),” McCarthy said before Wednesday’s practice. “There’s a number of opinions things he’s working through. He met with our medical staff, so we’re still going through the process.”

Bennett is getting different input from doctors on how to proceed with the injury after missing Monday’s loss to the Lions. The veteran had hinted on his Instagram Story on Oct. 28 that he is leaning toward retiring at the end of the season after a 10-year career that included stints with the Cowboys, Giants, Bears and Patriots before landing in Green Bay.

“After conversations with my family I’m pretty sure these next 8 games will be the conclusion of my NFL career,” Bennett wrote. “To everyone who has poured themselves and time into my life and career. These next games are for you. Thank you.”
