The Devon Witherspoon pick-6 is even better on the ManningCast feed

Photo by Kevin Sabitus/ We’re getting Manningface even in retirement from Eli. The Seattle Seahawks defense hammered the hapless New York Giants offense on their way to a 24-3 Monday Night Football road win, and former Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning was having a rough time sitting through it all on the “ManningCast” feed. Manning famously threw 5 interceptions as the eventual Super Bowl champion Seahawks pummeled the Giants in a 23-0 shutout at MetLife Stadium, and his successor Daniel Jones had a similarly bad performance on...

Golden Nuggets: Cowboys Week is here

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023 Silver: 49ers’ first-month rampage has the feel of 2019’s run to the Super Bowl (paywall) “There’s a long, long way to go before the 49ers can affirm that what they’ve launched in 2023 is a Super Bowl run, but the early signs are quite encouraging. Their first-month dominance has not been subtle, and that’s by design.” Kyle Shanahan provides injury updates, Brock Purdy assessment “It seems like every time Kyle Shanahan is asked about Brock Purdy and his development, he’s trying to find the...


These Patriots Must Step Up After Christian Gonzalez, Matthew Judon Injuries

In a way, the Patriots’ embarrassing 38-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys felt like rock bottom for Bill Belichick’s club. But that term suggests things won’t get worse for New England. And after losing two integral pieces of their defense, they very well could. The injuries suffered by Pro Bowl edge rusher Matthew Judon (torn […]

Reviewing Detroit Lions’ 2023 expectations at the quarter mark

Tork Mason-USA TODAY Sports Detroit’s flying high. But where should expectations be for 2023? Division title? Conference? Is it too early to talk Super Bowl? Moods are good, chipper even. The air is crisp, and the Detroit Lions are playing some of their best football yet again. Even better, they’ve taken an early lead in the NFC North division, and with a 3-1 record odds on statistical measures are starting to climb: they’ve not only got overwhelming odds to make the playoffs, but high odds to win the division too. It’s all coming up Detroit, but so many more...

Game balls for the Broncos 31-28 win over the Bears

Photo by Quinn Harris/ The Denver Broncos come back in the second half to beat the Chicago Bears, 31-28. Here are Mile High Report’s game balls for this game! The Denver Broncos didn’t just beat the Chicago Bears in what many were calling “The Caleb Williams Bowl” (I also heard Toilet Bowl used), but they came together for a convincing team effort. It didn’t look that way early with Denver looking listless on defense yet again and they found themselves down by three touchdowns midway through the third quarter. It certainly looked bleak at that point. Instead,...

Sunday Night Thread: It’s Zach Wilson against Patrick Mahomes

Photo by Al Pereira/ The Jets host the Kansas City Chiefs tonight The New York Jets host the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night football. Everyone on the planet believes Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Taylor Swift will run away with this game. Zach Wilson has done little to impress, and it feels like he’s a walking turnover at this point. You can’t help but feel bad for Robert Saleh, as the Jets looked to make a Super Bowl run with Aaron Rodgers under center, but that didn’t last long. The only Jets win is by way of a punt return touchdown....

Cowboys defense anything but Bland in historic blowout win vs. Patriots

As Winston Churchill once said, “history is written by the victors”. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has written his share of history in the NFL thanks to this, an eight-time Super Bowl champion that came to Dallas on Sunday off a win, drawing the Cowboys off their first loss. It was the victorious Cowboys adding to Belichick’s coaching history with a bounce-back performance though, beating the...

Chiefs-Jets rapid reaction: Chiefs escape with win against feisty Jets effort

Who/what is to blame for the Bengals’ disastrous start?

Zac Taylor | Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports With the season on the brink, what led to things going so badly for Cincinnati? Let me be honest with you. This is not the story I expected to be posting today. The Cincinnati Bengals. Super Bowl favorites. Everyone’s darlings. One of the best lineups, top to bottom, in the league. The time is now. Toast. Against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, our hometown team packed it in. They got beat in every phase of the game. And not just beat. Embarrassed.

Bears lose bottom-barrel bowl with baffling bumbles, buoy brow-beaten Broncos to bounce back

Justin Fields was certainly not the reason the Bears lost today. The Broncos defense gave the Bears offense a much-needed spark of life and allow for the best performance of Justin Fields career, but ultimately didn’t do enough to lose the game. Every week this season, I’ve convinced myself it can’t get worse for the Chicago Bears. Every week, they’ve proved me wrong. But this week, they were set to play a team that gave up 70 points. One can’t even use the word “burger” to describe the point feast Miami dropped on Denver. That was the whole tuna noodle...
