The Internal Steelers Struggle: Week 7 vs. the Bengals

The Internal Steelers Struggle: Week 7 vs. the Bengals

The voices in my head — Me, Myself and I — are at it again in their weekly roundtable. Predictably, it goes south in a hurry. The Steelers bring out the best -- and worst — in me. I call them Me (my rational, thoughtful side), Myself (my homeristically obnoxious side) and I (his name is one letter long so he doesn’t forget how to spell it). This week, they discuss the Steelers’ victory over the Chiefs and the upcoming war against the Bengals. Me: [Sits down and cracks a beer] Ahhhh...now that was a great football game. [Notices a small piece of colored paper on the floor but...

Broncos expected to call up two players from practice squad

Broncos expected to call up two players from practice squad

Broncos fourth-year linebacker Corey Nelson suffered a season-ending arm injury during practice Thursday and he will have surgery Monday. Denver plans to place Nelson on injured reserve and replace him by promoting  Jerrol Garcia-Williams from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. Garcia-Williams (6-2, 235 pounds) signed with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Hawaii earlier this year. He recorded 148 tackles and 3.5 sacks during his time with the Warriors. Garcia-Williams will likely be asked to contribute on special teams right away. Denver is also expected to promote rookie...

Why the Ahtyba Rubin signing makes so much sense for the Falcons

Why the Ahtyba Rubin signing makes so much sense for the Falcons

The Falcons get the run stopper they badly need at a discount. On Wednesday, I talked wistfully about the possibility of the team drafting a defensive tackle in the middle rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft, instead of one of the players they wound up with. That was chiefly because the Falcons’ run defense has continued to be a huge issue, and with Ra’Shede Hageman cut and Courtney Upshaw on the shelf, the Falcons have had very few quality options behind Grady Jarrett and Dontari Poe. Joe Vellano has shown himself to be what you would expect a player like Joe Vellano to be: Solid enough, but...

Cowboys News: Sean Lee to play vs 49ers; Randy Gregory reinstatement coming?

Latest Cowboys headlines: Sean Lee and Anthony Hitchens will play together for the first time all season; DeMarcus Lawrence leads the NFL with 8.5 sacks; more. Entering sixth game, why Cowboys' run defense is poised for big improvement - Brandon George, SportsDaySean Lee and Anthony Hitchens will play together for the first time all season. Hitchens will start at middle linebacker against the 49ers, with Sean Lee back after a two-game absence because of a hamstring injury and ready to run the show again on the weak side.

The Splash Zone 10/21/17: Previewing Sunday’s Game Against The Jets

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours. The Dolphins will be taking on the Jets on Sunday. The teams have already faced off once with a Jets victory in week 3. But this Dolphins team right now is much more different from that week 3 team. The Dolphins defense has been playing some great ball and the offense showed some signs of life last week thanks in most part to Jay Ajayi. The Dolphins should be angry after losing to this team once, don’t let it happen again. You...

The Bear’s Den, October 21, 2017

The Bear’s Den, October 21, 2017

Can Chicago’s revamped back seven crank up the turnovers against Carolina? Ken’s Note: I state this about every three months to keep the heads of the grammar fanatics from exploding. Yes, I am fully aware that the word Bears is plural, and that using the apostrophe as I do denotes a single Bear, not a plural group of Bears. This is not a grammatical error on my part, I assure you it’s quite intentional. I am a (i.e. ONE) Bear, this is MY Den. Therefore, this is The Bear’s Den. BEAR DOWN, CHICAGO BEARS, BEAR DOWN!!!!

Broncos need Jordan Taylor to play big role on Sunday

Broncos need Jordan Taylor to play big role on Sunday

The Afternoon Drive caught up with Denver’s receiver who has the chance to shine against the Chargers. There’s a popular cliche in the NFL. Over the last half decade or so, it’s taken a life of its own. Everywhere you turn, this damn phrase pops up. In some instances it works, but for others it’s just plan lazy. This is one of the few times it actually works and it has to do with the Denver Broncos. “Next man up.” For the Broncos to have a chance on Sunday against division rival the Los Angeles Chargers, they will need that in a major way. On Thursday alone, Denver lost three...

Atlanta Falcons talk: How can this team beat the Patriots?

Atlanta Falcons talk: How can this team beat the Patriots?

Stellar defense? Great offense? There are a few different ways to beat the New England Patriots, at least on paper. You could harass Tom Brady, eke out just enough offense to win, and stymie the Patriots’ high-flying aerial attack, as the Jets almost did. Or you could outgun them, as the Chiefs and Panthers did. If we’re being honest, the latter is the only sensible road to victory. It certainly will be for the Falcons, as well. To beat New England, the Falcons will need to be able to move the ball at will against their miserable defense, running effectively with Devonta Freeman and...

Injury update: the New England Patriots will be missing most of their cornerbacks

Injury update: the New England Patriots will be missing most of their cornerbacks

Please try passing the ball, Steve Sarkisian. I’m calling it now: Sunday’s game will make or break Atlanta’s season. Their odds of making the playoffs drop significantly if they fall to 3-3, especially in the likely situation where the Carolina Panthers beat the Chicago Bears. This should not only be a revenge game, but Atlanta needs to get back on track after a few duds. What could be helpful is the New England Patriots defense is objectively terrible. What’s even more helpful is they are already down two cornerbacks while the Atlanta Falcons get Mohamed Sanu back. No Stephon...

We simulate the Bengals vs the Steelers in Madden to try and predict the game It is finally Stealers week, and the Cincinnati Bengals are feeling fired up coming off a big win against the Bills. Not only that, but with the Ravens faltering, the Bengals could get within a half-game of the division lead and with a head to head win over the Steelers after the weekend. The Steelers are always a tough opponent for the Bengals and always an important game. It is unfair to label games this early in the season as must-win, but with the momentum the Bengals have built, and an easier than expected...

Seahawks-Giants final injury report: Jeremy Lane doubtful, C.J. Prosise questionable

It looks as if Seattle Seahawks rookie CB Shaquill Griffin will once again be pressed into starting duties, as normal starter Jeremy Lane has been listed as doubtful to play in Sunday’s road game against the New York Giants. Lane injured his groin during the team’s 46-18 win over the Indianapolis Colts on October 1st, and missed Seattle’s win over the Rams two weeks ago. As expected, Luke Joeckel and Cliff Avril are out, with the latter placed on injured reserve. The questionable tags for Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith, and Nazair Jones aren’t really worth being worried about....

Defining Trubisky's success, trade targets, and backup quarterbacks: Bears Mailbag Week 7!

What's considered "successful" for Mitchell Trubisky? Would Martavis Bryant fit in Chicago? This week's loaded Bears mailbag. If the Chicago Bears can play an AFC North opponent every week and take them to overtime, this team could do undefeated. Alas, NFL schedules don't work that way. The 2-4 simultaneously fun as well as bad Bears have their work cut out for them down the stretch of the 2017 season. There's a lot of promise to be appreciative of (hello a rising secondary?) and a lot to keep an eye on for improvement (will they ever be able to complete more than a few passes downfield to...
