Carlos Hyde suffered concussion in first quarter vs. Packers

The San Francisco 49ers lost running back Carlos Hyde to a concussion in the first quarter. We break down what that means. The San Francisco 49ers Week 3 matchup against the Green Bay Packers saw all sorts of injury issues arise. Bruce Ellington, Quinton Dial, and Eric Reid were among those who suffered various injuries that hopefully are not too big an issue. But a notable one saw running back Carlos Hyde suffered a concussion in the first quarter. He will have to go through the concussion protocol before he can return to practice. Hyde finished the game with four rushes for 30 yards. He...

Packers-49ers Final Score: Aaron Rodgers looks solid early in 21-10 win

Green Bay moved to 3-0 on the preseason, but the big news is that Aaron Rodgers looked good and stayed healthy in limited action. The big news coming out of the Green Bay Packers’ 21-10 preseason victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Friday night was that two-time MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers did finally play, and played well. Rodgers stayed in the game for the Packers’ first two series, throwing nine passes and completing six for 60 yards and a touchdown. After Rodgers left the game, the Packers got a gritty performance from Joe Callahan, who was 16/24 for 167 yards and a score of...

49ers-Packers final score: Colin Kaepernick struggles as Packers win, 21-10

The Packers have beaten the 49ers in the third week of the preseason. Colin Kaepernick did not do well in his return from injury. Colin Kaepernick’s much-anticipated return to action for the San Francisco 49ers was underwhelming at best and flat-out terrible at worst. The 49ers played the Green Bay Packers in the third week of the preseason on Wednesday and Kaepernick saw the field second, completing just two of six passes for 14 yards. Kaepernick looked uncertain in the pocket, he tucked the ball and ran for it when he had plenty of time in said pocket and he generally missed his throws...

Browns vs. Buccaneers Final Score: Jameis Winston and Mike Evans shine

There was a lot to look forward to outside of the game of football for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' first home stand of the year. The new sound system was installed. The new scoreboard was lit. There were concerts and fan giveaways before the game. All of that would've made a worth-while experience for a preseason exhibition. But, to Tampa fans' delight, there was a lot to get excited about on the field as the Bucs beat the Cleveland Browns 30-13. Aguayo is back For the last two weeks, all Bucs fans have heard on local and national radio is what to make of Roberto Aguayo's recent misses,...

Patriots vs Panthers Final Score: Patriots win 19-17

The Panthers starters took a step backward tonight in their 3rd preseason game. Usually this is when you want to play well. Instead it was the 3rd team that mounted a comeback. Here’s a quick hit recap 1st Quarter Cam had all day to throw early but no one could get open. Then a terrible 2nd punt by Scifres after he was essentially injured on the previous play when he was roughed. Worley getting tested early. Patriots drive the field but miss a FG. Kuechly dropped an INT that was right at him. He later makes a 3rd down tackle after looking like a missile out of the backfield. Panthers and...

Packers’ Aaron Rodgers plays two series vs. 49ers, leads one touchdown drive

QB1’s night and preseason are over after two series and one touchdown pass. Aaron Rodgers’ preseason is over after just over a quarter of football. The Green Bay Packers’ quarterback played the first two offensive series of Friday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, leading a touchdown drive on the second to pull the Packers even at a score of 7-7. He was pulled after those two series, as Joe Callahan took over for the third drive of the game. Rodgers completed six of nine passes in the game, totaling 60 yards with one score. That touchdown came on a six-yard pass to Randall...

Brent Grimes suffers apparent rib injury against Browns

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting pretty banged up while dominating the Cleveland Browns in their third preseason game. Mike Evans suffered a minor foot injury, but told CBS that he was fine. And now Brent Grimes had to leave the game with what looked to be a rib injury. Veteran Alterraun Verner replaced Grimes on the outside, with Jude Adjei-Barimah coming in to play the slot on third downs. Vernon Hargreaves is the Bucs’ other starting cornerback. Grimes had been struggling a little in this game, giving up a deep touchdown to Josh Gordon. An earlier completion to Gordon did not...

Jameis Winston is on fire as Buccaneers crush Browns before the half

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are destroying the Cleveland Browns in a nationally televised preseason game, with Jameis Winston playing a leading role. At the half, the Bucs are leading 27-10, with the starters probably playing just one more series after the half. We can call this a definite win for Tampa Bay’s first-team players. Winston completed 16 of 25 passes for a whopping 259 yards and two touchdowns. No sacks, no fumbles, no turnovers. He did add nine rushing yards on two scrambles, though. Almost half of that came on passes to Mike Evans, who caught five of five targets for 115 yards...

Watch Jameis Winston and Mike Evans make the Browns look silly

Jameis Winston is good. Mike Evans is good. Both of them are on fire in this game against Cleveland Browns, and especially on this latest drive. Winston and Evans just put the Tampa Bay Buccaneers up 27-3 on two absolutely gorgeous plays. THIS IS SOME SEXY STUFF RIGHT HERE pic.twitter.com/AW11jFBQud— Trevor Sikkema (@TrevorSikkema) August 27, 2016 This....this is a work of art. This is perfection. Except for the slight nudge that put Mike Evans out of bounds, that is, but that deep throw is right on the money — and it’s great to see that, because Winston had a lot of trouble...

Patriots vs Panthers Preseason Game 2nd Half Open Thread

Patriots lead 9-0. Here’s an open thread to discuss the action in the second half of the third preseason game of the season. Scifres' first punt as a Panther... and he gets run over. After the penalty, his second attempt travels just 21 yards.— Max Henson (@PanthersMax) August 26, 2016 We might see the punting job settled int he 1st quarter. Scifres has ice on his knee after taking a shot to it on his 1st punt. Newton sacked on 3rd down and Redfern boots a great punt. His 61-yarder helps swing the field position.— Max Henson (@PanthersMax) August 26, 2016 Ugly pass by Cam...

Seahawks GM John Schneider to attend 49ers-Packers preseason game

The San Francisco 49ers-Green Bay Packers Week 3 preseason contest will feature a handful of scouts and personnel executives. Scouts, directors, and general managers are frequently traveling during the preseason, scouting potential waiver candidates, considering trade options, and of course checking out opposing teams for the upcoming season. Matt Maiocco tweeted out this list of teams with representatives at tonight’s game. The list comes from the seating...

The Bucs scored a punt return touchdown for the firs time since 2009

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are pretty much dominating the Cleveland Browns right now, and Adam Humphries just emphasized that — with a little help from our good friend Andy Lee, who has zero interest in making tackles this preseason. Andy Lee is not interested in making tackles. pic.twitter.com/MWXsUkHtzw— Armando Salguero (@ArmandoSalguero) August 27, 2016 The Bucs hadn’t returned a punt for a touchdown since 2009, when Micheal Spurlock housed one against the eventual Super Bowl winning New Orleans Saints, helping the Bucs be one of just three teams to beat New Orleans that...

Jameis Winston still has that scramble magic

Jameis Winston just did this. He is still good. That is all. Vintage Jameis. All you can say. #Bucs cap off a long drive with six. pic.twitter.com/odf2hD2fk2— Trevor Sikkema (@TrevorSikkema) August 27, 2016 Okay, it’s not all. Winston has completed 7 of 10 passes for 90 yards and a touchdown so far this game, and has looked solid throughout. This is the kind of offense the Bucs can feel good about.

Blaine Gabbert to start vs. Packers, Colin Kaepernick to come off bench

The 49ers have their quarterback situation figured out for one preseason game. Now we’ll see who gets how many snaps between the two. The San Francisco 49ers announced Friday afternoon that quarterback Blaine Gabbert will get the start against the Green Bay Packers. They also stated that Colin Kaepernick will make his 2016 debut, which means he will likely be coming off the bench immediately after Gabbert. There is no clarification on how the snaps will be split up with the first team offense. My guess is both players will get first team work in the first half. If Gabbert ends up getting...

Vernon Hargreaves starts over Alterraun Verner against Browns

Well, that didn’t take long. Cornerback Vernon Hargreaves is starting over veteran Alterraun Verner against the Cleveland Browns, general manager Jason Licht told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Hargreaves, the Tampa Buccaneers’ first-round draft pick this year, wasn’t even practicing with the first team a few weeks ago, but two interceptions against the Jacksonville Jaguars apparently made a big impression on the team’s coaching staff. It won’t hurt that Verner hasn’t been particularly impressive this preseason, despite hopes that the new coaching staff would revitalize...

Aaron Rodgers starting for Packers, unlikely to play more than a quarter

We may not know the 49ers QB plans Friday night, but we might know the Packers plans. The Green Bay Packers are expected to start quarterback Aaron Rodgers Friday evening against the San Francisco 49ers, but his night will not last too long. ESPN’s Bob Holtzman is reporting Rodgers likely will not play more than a quarter. The Packers have a pretty good idea of what Aaron Rodgers can do. I know, that’s a stunning statement. But they’re going to play it careful, especially with backup Brett Hundley dealing with a sore ankle. If Rodgers only plays a quarter, that leaves three quarters...
