The positive thing is we’re 4-1 and we know we can be a lot better.

Josh Robinson, CB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Robinson exited the game against the Patriots in the first half due to a concussion, and did not return. Robinson serves primarily as the Bucs’ gunner on special teams.

Ryan Russell, DE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: A shoulder injury knocked Russell out of action during the second half on Thursday night, and he did not return. Following the contest, the team indicated Russell had dislocated his shoulder, and he is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

Find a way. The Panthers are 4-1 and a half-game in front of the defending NFC champion Falcons, who had the week off. The Saints and Buccaneers are at 2-2, and there’s only been one intradivision NFC South game so far. The next one isn’t until Week 8. No way at all to know how that division will sort itself out, but in the meantime, Carolina fires the measuring stick right back up again Thursday night, hosting those 4-1 Eagles in what could be an NFC playoff preview but yeah it’s still too early to tell.

“There’s still a lot to work on,” said Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey, who had his first NFL touchdown on Sunday. “Every day is about finding a way to get better. ”

It’s all about finding a way. The Panthers and the Lions met here Sunday with each trying to find its way back to the NFC playoffs. The early part of the season has shown that each has the defense to do it but needs to work on the offense. The Panthers’ offense has found a way to stack two good games in a row, so they’re 4-1 and the Lions are 3-2. Will they meet again? They could find a way.x (1)

Let’s Take Brain Injuries Out of Play.

Rodgers threw this ball a little higher on the next play, and Adams turned to track it a little earlier, and suddenly the Packers had all but replicated their dramatic divisional playoff victory nine months ago in the same supermall of a ballpark, AT&T Stadium. Adams fired the ball into the crowd to punctuate the moment. It was a 34-31 Packers win in January and a 35-31 Packers win Sunday, and everybody on the visitors’ side went home happy.

“That’s what we do,” Rodgers barked as he entered the locker room. “That’s what we do, baby.”

Rodgers immediately passed a sign on his left that was headlined, “CONCUSSION,” in bold, capital letters, with this message beneath it: “A Must Read for NFL Players.”

That sign perfectly explained why the hero of the game, Adams, didn’t belong on the field in the first place.

Touchdown Cowboys. Dallas drives down the field and gets into the end zone on its opening possession to take a 7-0 lead. After Prescott’s long completion, Dallas converts on a fourth down and moves the chains again on a 14-yard catch by Jason Witten. Three plays later, on third-and-goal, Dez Bryant drops a Prescott pass in the end zone. But, Packers linebacker Blake Martinez is called for a questionable personal foul penalty, resulting in a fresh set of downs for Dallas. Prescott follows with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley.

Facing a third-and-14 on the game’s opening driving, Dak Prescott avoids pressure, rolls out of the pocket and finds Brice Butler for a 49-yard gain, moving Dallas into Packers territory.x (5)

How to bet Minnesota-Chicago

ESPN Chalk’s NFL Vegas experts (Phil Steele, Erin Rynning, Warren Sharp and Mike Clay) are here to provide analysis and best bets for Monday night’s tilt between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears.

“Sources said Brown has felt strongly the urge to kneel in protest during the anthem, but the Steelers have been in unison standing or remaining off the field during the playing of it. Sunday, when the quarterback did not throw to him early in the game, when he was wide open for a possible TD, Brown took it personally and believed it was related to his recent dispute with Roethlisberger, according to the sources, which led to his sideline blow-up.”

Brown on Wednesday apologized for his tantrum. A day prior, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin had addressed the matter.

“It doesn’t need to happen,” Tomlin said Tuesday. “It shouldn’t happen. Hopefully, he learned a lesson through that. A.B. is a competitor, we all know that. It aids him, it aids us. He has to control (his emotions). If not, it can work against him, it can work against us. Those are lessons you learn along the way.”

Roethlisberger also spoke out Tuesday against Brown’s actions, saying, “I don’t know (if) he needs to react that way. He’s superhuman on the football field, and when that happens it almost brings him back to being a mere mortal, if you will. Because it gets in his head and it just messes with all of us a little bit. I’m not trying to call AB out. I just think this is causing a distraction that none of us really need.”

Brown, who has 30 catches for 388 yards and a touchdown through four games in 2017, was held to just four catches for 34 yards against Baltimore.

Key Bucs players Spence, David will undergo MRIs Monday after game injuries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Noah Spence suffered a dislocated shoulder during the Bucs’ 34-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, while weakside linebacker Lavonte David suffered what the training staff believes is a high ankle sprain, a source told ESPN.

Spence left the game early but did return, while David was carted off late in the fourth quarter. X-rays for David did not reveal any broken bones, but he will undergo an MRI Monday to learn the extent of the injury, as will Spence. David was walking around on crutches after the game with his left ankle heavily taped.

Despite the world’s most depressing pro day, where he kicked in front of zero scouts in the California rain, he earned his first NFL contract with 49ers in 2012. San Francisco cut him before he even saw the field, setting off a string of almosts that led him to deals with the Raiders, Packers, and Lions without finding a permanent home.

The one team who kept calling, however, was the one closest to his American home. The Raiders saw Tavecchio’s talent, even though they had no room for him on the roster behind their entrenched veteran kicker. As Silver and Black Pride tells it:

When I left there, it was not the best of terms with some of the people, Tolbert said on The John Murphy Show. But at the same time, I have lifelong brothers that I made there.

Tolbert, a 10-year veteran, has been highly productive in his career, racking up 2,444 yards and 34 touchdowns. He’ll now have to block guys like Luke Kuechly — whom Tolbert called the best linebacker in the league — and Thomas Davis in this game. Buffalo is a run-first team, and Tolbert is arguably one of the best blocking fullbacks in the league.

This matchup should be a knock-down-drag-out game, and Buffalo will look to Tolbert set the tone in the run game against some of his best friends.

CFL, CFLPA immediately end full-contact practices

The CFL and CFLPA are enacting a new safety measure.

The league on Wednesday announced it will immediately eliminate full-contact practices during the regular season in an effort to reduce collisions and ensure the well-being of its players.

NFL Network first reported that he likely would play Thursday, and ESPN confirmed the report.

Ross made his NFL debut in Cincinnati’s third preseason game, brought along slowly after surgery for a torn labrum. He had no receptions in his one game, but was used on a jet sweep, an example of how the Bengals are expected to use his speed and ability to stretch the field.

Quarterback Andy Dalton likely will welcome another weapon. He struggled in the Bengals’ season-opening shutout loss to the Ravens, completing only 16 of 31 passes, five to A.J. Green, for 170 yards and was intercepted four times and sacked five times.

In his final season at the University of Washington, Ross had 81 receptions for 1,150 yards and 17 touchdowns and also averaged almost 13 yards per carry on eight rushing attempts.

This was the fifth time in his 16 NFL starts that he managed at least 23 carries — he had exactly that number — and his five receptions represented a new personal best. That’s not to take anything away from Cohen, who had healthy numbers in terms of PPR (14.2) and non-PPR (10.2) fantasy points, but the Bears remain likely to give Howard the larger rushing share of the two to keep the smallish Cohen healthy over the long haul. Howard was started in just 53.0 percent of ESPN leagues, down more than 40 percent from Week 1, but that number is sure to rise significantly next week.

NFL scores: Week 2 results, highlights for each game

Week 2 of the 2017 NFL season featured a slate of games with relatively unexpected importance attached. New England, for example, was in New Orleans and in danger of falling to 0-2 for a season in which many speculated the Patriots could go undefeated.

Elsewhere, the Colts and Cardinals were scheduled to play a game that could be pivotal for two teams desperately searching for positives after Week 1 losses. Sunday’s highlighted games were a matchup of playoff contenders, Cowboys vs. Broncos, in Denver and an NFC title game rematch, Packers vs. Falcons, in Atlanta’s brand-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

With Olivier Vernon out thanks to an ankle injury, the Eagles were able to run the ball and get back in field goal range, eventually tying the score at 24-24 with 51 seconds left. The Giants took over with three timeouts and had plenty of time to get in field goal range, only to again play sloppy football. Manning completed a short pass and let the clock run without calling timeout, but as the Giants rushed to the line, the offense never got set and Ereck Flowers was called for an illegal shift.

The Giants then used a timeout to prevent a 10-second runoff, which cost them dearly. Flowers subsequently held to make it second-and-18, where Shane Vereen caught a 2-yard checkdown and foolishly went out of bounds, saving the Eagles a timeout. Manning then threw a pass short of the sticks on third down, and a 28-yard shank from Brad Wing gave the Eagles the ball back with 13 seconds and a timeout on their 38-yard line. After a 19-yard completion, Elliott hit a 61-yarder to get the keys to every Wawa in Philadelphia.

It’s bad luck to be beaten by a field goal from another area code, but the Giants should have been able to seal up this lead or at least make it to overtime. This is a team that was supposed to be full of veterans who know how to win after going 8-3 in one-score games last season, but a series of mental mistakes might have cost them their season.

Those were shocking plays by a defense that relies on not making mistakes.

In just one game in 2017, the Patriots gave up a pair of 75+ yard scores; a 75-yard touchdown to Tyreek Hill and a 78-yard touchdown to Kareem Hunt.

If Sam Bradford’s performance was reminiscent of Joe Montana against the Saints, then Alex Smith was more like a combination of Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. He could do no wrong, going 28-of-35 for 368 yards and four touchdowns. Matt Patricia’s defense had no answers for Smith, who was able to connect on some big deep balls — something we aren’t necessarily accustomed to seeing. At his absolute best, Smith’s best yards per game average was last year at 233.5 passing yards/game.

We can’t ignore it anymore, and neither can the Giants. Eli is 36, didn’t look great last season, and has been straight-up bad through two games. He’s a bigger statue than ever in the pocket, compounding the pass protection issues. His throws were scattershot, lacking much zip or accuracy. On Monday, he completed 68.7 percent of his passes (22-of-32), but for only 239 yards — largely dumpoffs or checkdowns. His early connection with Engram has been one of the few bright spots, but otherwise it’s been ugly.

This wouldn’t be the first time a Manning suddenly fell off the cliff — we all saw what happened to Peyton in 2015 — so if Eli is heading into the twilight of his career, the Giants need to be serious about an eventual succession plan. Signing Geno Smith and drafting Davis Webb in the third round won’t cut it.

This play right here should get Rams fans fired up!

This wasn’t a perfect game for Goff. He still has room for improvement. He needs to continue to work on throwing on the run.

Here he gets a tad bit of pressure, moves to his right, has room to work and throws a worm finder into the turf. Making these types of throws when the pocket breaks down will take his game to whole another level.

Week 1 was a huge improvement for Jared Goff. Sure, it was against the lowly Colts, but Goff looked confident and the offense looks to be in a good rhythm. He’ll have some ups and downs this season, but if I were a Rams fan, I’d be excited about where this is headed.

Brady had only three wide receivers at his disposal, but he employed each of them to push his team out to a big first half lead against the Saints. His finest moment may have been when he convinced the refs to pick up an offensive pass interference flag and allow a 13-yard Chris Hogan touchdown to stand.

He also utilized his old-man tricks, catching New Orleans with 12 men on the field to earn five free yards and negate a free-play interception in the third quarter.

“Based upon the preliminary injunction standard, the Court finds, that Elliott did not receive a fundamentally fair hearing, necessitating the Court grant the request for preliminary injunction,” Mazzant wrote in his ruling.

Was an appeal the league’s only option? The league could have placed Elliott on the commissioner’s exempt list to circumvent the court’s decision but elected not to do that, according to Mark Maske of The Washington Post.

Putting Elliott on the exempt list would keep him off the field, but he would be paid during his absence.

J.J. Watt wanted to raise $200,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief. He topped $37 million

J.J. Watt was quick in helping organize relief efforts for Houston after Hurricane Harvey devastated the area. He wanted to raise $200,000, but in the end, the donations came to more than $37 million.

“It’s very difficult, not only because we have family and friends back there,” Watt said. “Some guys have young kids. Some guys have wives and families. But that’s our city. It’s very tough to watch your city get hit by such a bad storm and not be there to help.”

Nobody believes that the Bills can steal one from the Panthers in Carolina’s home opener. It’s hard to argue with that.

Green Bay’s defense looked better than it has in a long time last week against the Seahawks. Is that going to be enough to stop the Falcons on Sunday night this week? The panel doesn’t seem to think so. I would urge a little caution on this one because Week 1 is so hard to read. Are the Falcons legitimately having a problem with the transition to a new offensive coordinator or was that just a hiccup to start the season?

We have a three-way tie for the lead right now. Stephen, Jeanna, and Harry all picked 10 out of 15 games correctly. Geoff is right behind them with nine. Last week’s guest, Brandon Lee Gowton from Bleeding Green Nation, also picked nine games correctly.

Please welcome Dave Choate from The Falcoholic, our Falcons site. He has graciously agreed to subject himself to letting the world see his picks for this week’s games. He also picked the Falcons to win this week — probably smart.

Here are this week’s picks. Remember, we let our panelists change two picks, if they want, on Friday so that we get the chance to adjust based on injuries, etc.

Rebuilding 49ers, Rams can assess progress in Thursday game

The Los Angeles Rams travel north to take on their long-time NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers in this week’s Thursday night game.

Washington Nationals pitchers Sean Doolittle and Ryan Zimmerman, who both played college baseball at Virginia, said the incidents shouldn’t reflect on the people of the university or the town.

“I hope people not from this area of the country understand that the people that were marching in and around [the university] and Charlottesville, they’re not from there,” Doolittle said Sunday. “These aren’t people that represent the school or the community. This was a rally where people came from other parts of the state, other parts of the region. Because that area, that town, is an incredibly accepting and diverse and embracing community.”

Zimmerman said: “It is not reflective of the city or the people there. But as far as the stuff, I don’t really want to get into all that kind of stuff, but it’s sad. You hope that at some point we can kind of move on from these kind of things, but you don’t know.”

Jersey sale statistics in and of themselves aren’t going to correlate with fantasy football value — need I remind you of Tim Tebow? That said, seeing how a player’s jersey sales ebb and flow over the course of a football season can definitely give you an inkling as to how the “wisdom of the crowds” perceives the current performance level of certain players.
