4 things we learned from the Bengals’ loss to Washington

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports The Bengals will have to go the rest of the season without Joe Burrow, so some challenges will arise. It’s impossible to talk about Sunday’s game without talking about Joe Burrow. Burrow suffered a nasty leg injury and was carted off the field. On Monday, we found out he tore his ACL, MCL, and had some other damage. The remedy is reconstructive surgery and rehab this offseason. No doubt that this injury will have lasting effects on the whole team. The Bengals may not win another game this season. Joe Burrow was the heartbeat of the...

Shaquill Griffin, Chris Carson, and Ethan Pocic return to practice

Photo by Michael Reaves/ The Seahawks entered their mini bye week on a high note, having just defeated the Cardinals. Furthering that positivity was Pete Carroll and Seattle’s belief that several key starters would return to practice when the team did. On Tuesday, the Seahawks returned to practice ahead of Week 12 and that proved correct, as Shaquill Griffin, Chris Carson, and Ethan Pocic were on the field for Seattle. Both Carson and Griffin have been out since Week 7, when Griffin suffered a concussion and a hamstring injury (which was what kept him out in recent...

Julio Jones worryingly a “game-time decision” for Sunday already, per Raheem Morris

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The veteran receiver missed most of Week 11’s matchup against the Saints, and could miss the game against the Raiders too. Julio Jones is one of the greatest ever to do it, and through the years he’s fought through a lot of injuries to play, sometimes in games of great importance and sometimes in games that don’t mean much at all. Even in the Saints game, where the Falcons were getting creamed and he spent much of the day on the sidelines, #11 forced his way back into the game to make one big catch before exiting for good. The reality is...

Film Room: These three plays from Kellen Moore versus the Vikings were a beauty to watch

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ Kellen Moore called one heck of a game on Sunday. Ever since Kellen Moore was elevated to the offensive coordinator role, there’s been a lot of hype about his prowess as a play-caller. After a good, albeit uneven, performance last year, Moore entered the 2020 season working with a more pass-happy head coach in Mike McCarthy. As a result, the Cowboys got off to a red-hot start throwing the ball this year prior to Dak Prescott’s injury. As should be expected, Moore and the rest of the offense took some time to adjust to the loss of their...

Brandon Parker earns high praise from Raiders coach John Gruden

Brandon Parker | Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports 2018 draft pick finally showing his chops Just before the 53-man roster was set in September, many people were surprised the Las Vegas Raiders traded backup offensive lineman David Sharpe to the Washington Football Team and instead kept Brandon Parker. Since the Raiders traded up to take Parker, a small-school tackle, with the first pick of the 2018 third round, he had been a disappointment. He started 12 games as a rookie as an injury replacement after starting three games in 2019, Parker was considered a liability. Now,...

Film review: How crossed wires busted the Vikings secondary again in Cowboys loss

Amari Cooper's 32-yard catch and run in the second quarter of the Vikings' loss to the Cowboys on Sunday was the 36th pass of at least 20 yards surrendered by this Vikings defense through 10 games. The Vikings' top-ranked 2017 defense allowed just 35 such plays all season. The issue during Cooper's big play, which set up a Cowboys field goal before halftime of a three-point loss, is all too familiar during a transitional season bottoming out again for a young and injury-ravaged defense. Coach Mike Zimmer saw problems wider than coverage busts. "We had a couple mistakes," Zimmer said....
