On high alert as area COVID-19 numbers rise, Packers players’ focus remains sharp: ‘We’d like to keep playing’

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020

If we’re going to have football played this year, it’s going to take a lot of self-discipline and a lot of self-accountability,” the Packers second-year coach had said, two weeks before training camp practices began in earnest. It’s not just our players, either. It starts with our staff — really, anybody that comes in contact with our players.

Bereft of scripted shows, opening week ratings down for TV

Tuesday, September 29th, 2020

ABC, NBC and Fox were all down from last year, too. But between pro football and the return of some popular unscripted shows like “The Masked Singer” and “Dancing With the Stars,” they weren't hurt as much as CBS. Fox's animated series, including the ageless “The Simpsons,” are also back.

Fantasy Waiver Wire Week 4: Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman among top free agent pickups after prime-time breakouts

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Unlike last week, there aren't obvious, multi-week RB fill-ins for top players, so there will likely be more activity on the free agent wire than the waiver wire after waivers clear around 4-5 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning in Yahoo and ESPN leagues. Just because we don't necessarily have a lot of high-quality potential pickups doesn't mean we don't feature a high quantity.

Beignets and Café au Lait: Penalties, Turnover Doom Saints Against Packers

Monday, September 28th, 2020

New Orleans, trailing 3-0, would eventually turn to the running game, with Alvin Kamara taking the ball for a 49-yard run (his longest in two years) and eventually being on the receiving end of a Drew Brees’ touchdown pass. New Orleans would win the first quarter 7-3. The Packers would respond by scoring the next 10 points and take a 13-7 lead early in the second quarter.

The 10 biggest takeaways from NFL week three: Seahawks and Packers confirm contender status while Falcons blow another lead

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Josh Allen delivers (again) In the opening weeks of the season, Josh Allen has performed at an extremely high level. Against the Rams on Sunday, he did it again. Buffalo got out to a dominant lead before LA fought their way back, sneaking in front. It fell on Allen to save his side - and that is exactly what he did. He drove his side down the field, coming up with the crucial touchdown pass to secure a 35-32 win, taking the Bills to 3-0. It was not perfect from Allen, who made a couple of mistakes. However, he ended the game with over 300 passing yards, four touchdown throws, a rushing touchdown and ultimately a win. Allen is having some season. The Chicago Bears, somehow, move to 3-0 The Bears fought back from the brink of defeat to beat the Atlanta Falcons, maintaining their winning streak. Chicago could have easily lost a couple of games already but staged a comeback when it mattered. After an uninspiring first half, quarterback Mitch Trubisky was benched for Nick Foles who got the offense moving immediately. Foles threw for three touchdowns and energised an otherwise lacklustre offense. The Bears do not feel like a 3-0 team, but they are after winning all three of their matches by just four points apiece. Can they keep it up against the Colts next week? The Falcons choke again The Atlanta Falcons have become the unquestioned chokers of the NFL. Having given up a seemingly unassailable lead last week against the Cowboys, the Falcons conspired to throw away another victory on Sunday. The Bears trailed by 16 points but still came out victorious after a dramatic second half. After two crushing back-to-back defeats for Atlanta, they desperately need to find a way to shift the momentum and get themselves over the line for a win.
