Davon House, CB, Green Bay Packers: He came into the game with a shoulder injury and was a surprise active despite being declared doubtful on the injury report. He was quickly declared out for the duration of the game because of a back injury.
On Monday, the team confirmed that House will not need surgery for his transverse process fracture, and that he could return this season.
Taylor on beating the Chiefs in Kansas City: “Not that this matters, but 17 out of 19 people didn’t pick us to win this one. We like those underdog feelings.”
Tomlin on facing the Patriots on Dec. 17: “I’m going to embrace the elephant in the room. Going to be fireworks. And it’s probably going to be Part 1. That’s going to be a big game. But probably, if we’re both doing what we’re supposed to, the second one is really going to be a big game. Then what happens in the first is going to set up the second one, which is going to determine the location of the second one.”
On the third play of overtime, DeShone Kizer threw an inexplicable pass that was picked off by Josh Jones. While any bettors who took the Browns at +3.5 or higher would have still covered with a Green Bay field goal, all Cleveland supporters would become losers after another touchdown by Adams — this time coming on a 25-yard play to end the game.
The Jaguars usually prey on one-dimensional passing teams, because it allows their “Sacksonville” pass rush to pin its ears back and take over, setting up takeaways for their talented secondary. They are bound to make some big pressure plays on the Seahawks, but Seattle can make it equally ugly on Leonard Fournette and Blake Bortles. At the end of the game, Seattle has the one player to pretty it all up on a field-goal drive: Russell Wilson.
