Sunday, October 20th, 2019

The Minnesota Vikings were so confident in Kirk Cousins they called for a deep pass, instead of a more conservative run, to seal a victory against the Detroit Lions. Cousins connected with Stefon Diggs on a 66-yard pass from deep in his territory with two-plus minutes left after matching a career high with four touchdown passes, leading the surging Vikings to a 42-30 win over the slumping Lions. ''That's a play we knew had a chance,'' Cousins said.

Former MVP Matt Ryan becomes latest QB to get hurt

Sunday, October 20th, 2019

Matt Ryan became the latest star quarterback to go down in a rugged season for passers, injuring his right ankle when he was sacked by the Los Angeles Rams' Aaron Donald in the Atlanta Falcons' blowout loss on Sunday. The 2016 MVP had been his usual consistent self for the struggling Falcons, throwing for at least 300 yards in each of Atlanta's first six games. That streak came to an end Sunday against the Rams' pass rush, which sacked him five times as Atlanta fell to 1-6.

The Detroit Lions quarterback reached a historic milestone Sunday by becoming the fastest player to reach 40,000 career passing yards. Stafford was already the quickest player to reach each milestone since 15,000, but this further cements his place in the record books. Stafford only needed 147 games to reach the milestone, four games fewer than it took Matt Ryan to arrive at the mark when he set the previous record in 2017.

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

After a nice long bye week, the Raiders will be back in action Sunday as they visit Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Jon Gruden and Co. are coming off an impressive win across the pond, as they took down the Chicago Bears in a 24-21 win, in part through a 97-yard touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter that rookie tailback Josh Jacobs punctuated with a leaping finish over the Bears' punishing front seven.

The Green Bay Packers' passing game has suffered since Davante Adams left a Week 4 game with a foot injury, but things are getting progressively worse. Fellow wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) have yet to practice this week, and Adams has already been ruled out against the Oakland Raiders. Head coach Matt LaFleur would not commit either way on the two injured receivers but said: “We've got time to see if they'll come around.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are set to take on the Oakland Raiders without top wide receiver Davante Adams. Adams remains sidelined by a painful turf toe injury after missing wins over the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions the past two weeks. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said the team is likely to make a call on wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee, ankle) before kickoff at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
