Texans 13 , Packers 21 :Final Score/Post Game Recap

Texans 13 , Packers 21 :Final Score/Post Game Recap

The conditions for today’s game were testing for both teams. Both offenses struggled because of it. Green Bay’s opening offensive drive went down the entire field before Aaron Rodgers botched the snap and the Texans recovered at their own 2 yard line. The Texans themselves struggled to generate much in the way of offense with Lamar Miller getting stuffed in the run game before suffering a minor injury which kept him sidelined for large chunks of the game. This wasn’t the only loss that the Texans offense suffered with Braxton Miller leaving after falling awkwardly on his shoulder. The...

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...

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer reportedly has fourth eye procedure done

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, after a follow-up appointment with doctors on Friday morning, had another operation on his eye that day and “appears to be turning a corner for the better,” according to an ESPN report. Zimmer had emergency surgery late Wednesday night to repair a detached retina on his right eye. That surgery, then the third for Zimmer since Nov. 1, caused him to miss the team’s loss to the Cowboys on Thursday night. The latest operation, the one reported by ESPN, is the fourth on that eye. The Vikings canceled Zimmer’s usual day-after press conference for Friday but listed...

Dungy gives reminder on just how evenly matched NFL teams are [NFL Picks & Power Rankings]

Each Saturday morning during the NFL season, we’ll wake up early, take a hearty cut at predicting the unpredictable league, wince at how it went the week before and ponder the definition of insanity. I had the opportunity to sit down and talk with Tony Dungy before Thursday night’s game at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Super Bowl-winning Hall of Fame coach and excellent NBC TV analyst was asked what’s wrong with the Vikings. His answer made it sound like the free-falling Vikings were evenly matched with a Dallas team that was 10-1 with a franchise-record 10 straight wins in one season. Hours...
