When the Lions played the Pats in Foxboro in 2006, the same thing happened, Sports -Illustrated reported.
Keenum continues to help the Vikings win despite the fact they lost their biggest offensive playmaker, rookie running back Dalvin Cook, to a season-ending knee injury and have been without their top receiver, Stefon Diggs, who’s missed the past two games with a groin injury.
The Jaguars have an option on Bortles’ 2018 contract. They could bring him back for a bit more than $19 million, walk away with no dead money under the salary cap, or renegotiate a long-term deal. That may end up being a better idea for Coughlin than bringing in Eli Manning to play at age 37.
Todd Gurley ran off left tackle for 57 yards and a touchdown late in the first half in Seattle. The wide-open scamper symbolized the Rams’ utter dominance in a 42-7 wipeout of the Seahawks that put all but the finishing touches on a changing of the guard in the NFC West that has been in the making all season.
Russell Wilson, who almost singlehandedly kept Seattle in the hunt despite injuries to the entire Legion of Boom secondary, had all his powers taken away by the Rams defense. He was sacked seven times, including three times by Aaron Donald.
The Rams clinched a playoff berth, their first since 2004, and now need one win or one Seahawks loss to guarantee their first division title since a year before that.
Vita Vea, DT, Washington. The Chargers have a pair of beasts on the edge to rush the passer, but too many times this year they were done in by the run, giving up a league-worst 4.9 yards per carry as six opponents topped 150 rushing yards against them this season. Vea, a massive presence in the middle of a defensive line, will go a long way toward fixing that deficiency, while also providing enough quickness to penetrate into the backfield on some third downs.
“From what I can remember, he had quite a fit when we took him out,” Packers President Bob Harlan said.
