Cecil Shorts suffers serious leg injury against Chargers

Cecil Shorts suffers serious leg injury against Chargers

Wide receiver Cecil Shorts suffered what appeared to be a very serious leg injury against the San Diego Chargers today. After making a third-down catch to convert the team, he had to be carted off with an air-cast around his right leg. Shorts was immediately announced as out for the game with a knee injury, which indicates how serious the injury is. The veteran played mostly as an injury fill-in this season, and made 10 catches for 138 yards. He started four games in total. With Shorts out, the Bucs will likely give special teams ace Russell Shepard more playing time at wide receiver,...

Chip Kelly says no QB decision for Week 14 after Colin Kaepernick benching, limited passing attempts

Chip Kelly says no QB decision for Week 14 after Colin Kaepernick benching, limited passing attempts

The 49ers quarterback situation was a mess against the Bears. Head coach Chip Kelly discussed the decision to bench Colin Kaepernick. The San Francisco 49ers lost another ugly one in Week 13, and a big part of the problem was the lack of any semblance of a passing game. Colin Kaepernick completed 1-of-5 passes for four yards through three quarters, and was sacked five times for 25 yards lost. Chip Kelly benched Kaepernick early in the fourth quarter, and Blaine Gabbert replaced him. Gabbert finished his stint 4-of-10 for 35 yards. He was sacked once for a loss of eight yards (and a...

Texans-Packers Final Score: Jordy Nelson's big day leads Packers to 21-13 win

Texans-Packers Final Score: Jordy Nelson's big day leads Packers to 21-13 win

The veteran Packer had a huge game and the defense made timely stops as Green Bay got back to .500 on the season. On a snowy Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers stayed alive in the NFC North with a victory over the Houston Texans. Green Bay got a huge game from Jordy Nelson and found just enough success in the running game to keep Houston's defense honest in the second half as they improved to 6-6 on the season. Nelson had eight receptions for 118 yards on the day and he caught the touchdown that put the Packers on top for good. Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers fought through...

Week 13 NFL schedule: Rooting for strength of schedule help

The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up an ugly game in Chicago. We’ll have plenty more about this abomination of a football game, but in the meantime, we have a thread for the afternoon action. The afternoon schedule features four games, three of which impacts the 49ers strength of schedule. The Raiders host the Bills, and a Bills loss helps the 49ers. Arizona hosts Washington, and a Cardinals loss really helps the 49ers SOS due to two games between then. Finally, the San Diego Chargers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and a Bucs loss helps the 49ers. The other game of the afternoon is...

Buccaneers vs. Chargers inactives: Gerald McCoy plays

Buccaneers vs. Chargers inactives: Gerald McCoy plays

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Diego Chargers will be largely healthy today as they play each other. Both teams will be missing one defensive starter: safety Chris Conte for the Bucs, and cornerback Brandon Flowers for the Chargers. Both of those absences had been announced on Friday. There was a little bit of doubt about Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, but he’ll suit up. The fact that the Bucs left two defensive tackles inactives suggests he won’t be limited much if at all. The Bucs will start Keith Tandy in Conte’s place, but expect Ryan Smith and newly re-signed veteran Major...

Texans vs. Packers, Week 13: Second Half Game Updates & Discussion

With 30 minutes in the books, join APC for the second half of today’s Packers game. After 30 minutes at Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers hold a 7-0 lead over the Houston Texans. For the first time all year, the Packers did not allow an opponent to score in the last few minutes of the first half. A sack by Julius Peppers with about a minute left ensured that Houston would stay scoreless through the end of the half. The only score of the game came on a 9 yard pass from Aaron Rodgers to Randall Cobb. Green Bay's running game got going a bit in the second quarter after substituting...

Rashard Robinson flagged for excessive celebration for doing a snow angel

Rashard Robinson flagged for excessive celebration for doing a snow angel

Getting a flag for celebrating a player that did not finish as well as expected. The 2016 49ers in a nutshell. The San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears are playing an ugly game in what has been an ugly season for them. And as they play in the snow, the No Fun League is also stepping in. Shaun Draughn blocked a punt by the Bears, and cornerback Dontae Johnson picked it up and scampered to the end zone. Johnson stepped out of bounds at the 4-yard line, but was unaware as he got into the end zone. Thinking that he had scored a touchdown, Johnson did what anybody would do and celebrated....

49ers kick punt at Bears 32 yard line

49ers kick punt at Bears 32 yard line

This game is the mess we deserve. The snow is coming down pretty strong in Chicago, and that is resulting in exceedingly conservative play-calling between the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears. Colin Kaepernick and Matt Barkley were a combined 0-for-3 passing in the first quarter, and the second quarter opened with the 49ers punting from the Bears 32-yard line. The 49ers had started a drive at their own 12-yard line, and methodically worked their way downfield on the ground. Kaepernick actually completed a shovel pass to Shaun Draughn, but the play was called back on a holding penalty....

Jay Glazer reports Chip Kelly will be back with 49ers in 2017

The 49ers have a lot of questions to face after this season, but it would appear they will face them with Chip Kelly still in position. The San Francisco 49ers kick off against the Chicago Bears at 10 a.m. PT, but in the pre-game show, FOX NFL reporter Jay Glazer had a notable report. He said that regardless of what happens these final five games, Chip Kelly will be the 49ers head coach in 2017. There has been plenty of speculation about Chip Kelly’s future in San Francisco. The wins and losses are not good, but beyond that, there is the potential for significant change all over the...

Buccaneers vs. Chargers predictions

Buccaneers vs. Chargers predictions

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the San Diego Chargers later today, in what will be a crucial in both teams’ playoff bids. And all that means it’s time to predict the game. The Bucs and Chargers are remarkably similar when viewed over the season as a whole, but they differ in the details. Where the Chargers have consistently had a very productive passing attack and lackluster defense, the Bucs have been remarkably inconsistent on both sides of the ball, with very high highs and very low lows. Recent games would suggest the Bucs have a small advantage, with the team winning three of the...

Texans-Packers Inactives: Jadeveon Clowney sits for Houston, Matthews/Ryan active for Packers

Texans-Packers Inactives: Jadeveon Clowney sits for Houston, Matthews/Ryan active for Packers

Green Bay gets a few key defenders back today, while Houston will be missing one of the most important members of its front seven. The Green Bay Packers will be facing a tough Houston Texans defense this afternoon, but they will do so while Houston is without two of its best defensive players and another good pass-rusher. Defensive end J.J. Watt has been on injured reserve for pretty much the entire 2016 season due to back issues, and will of course be unavailable. However, Jadeveon Clowney has been coming into his own this season, and he has been a big reason for the Texans’ maintaining...
