Smith started in the Raiders' season-opener and shared time at right cornerback with TJ Carrie but did not play the following week.

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

After a Week 2 stumble, the Buffalo Bills are looking to get their running game going again Sunday in Orchard Park, N.Y. Standing in their way will be the Denver Broncos. Buffalo (1-1) was held without a touchdown last week in a 9-3 loss to Carolina, and the Bills' running game went nowhere. LeSean McCoy went from 110 yards rushing in a season-opening win over the New York Jets to 9 yards on a dozen carries against the Panthers.

Christopher Johnson says Jets aren’t tanking

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Christopher Johnson, the Jets' acting owner as his brother Woody Johnson serves as Ambassador to the United Kingdom under President Donald Trump, says the team isn't tanking. "It couldn't be further from the truth," Johnson told reporters on Wednesday. "I want to win every game. Every player in that locker room wants to win. What you're seeing, I think, are growing pains. These are young guys. There are some older guys on the team. Some of them, they're doing an extraordinary job. But I think you're going to see this team get better and better and better. That's what I'm looking for. And we are definitely not tanking." The Jets, who have started the season 0-2 and are expected to have one ot

Road favorites all over the board in Week 3

Texans coach Bill O'Brien says "you can't hide in the NFL." Pro Picks can hide its eyes from the Thursday night extravaganza, which this week, uh, features the Rams against the 49ers. Los Angeles is one of nine visiting teams favored in Week 3; it's 10 if you count the Ravens against host Jacksonville in London. These Rams seem to have something decent going on, and the 49ers have shown very little. In other words, the coaching change to Sean McVay in L.A. is working better so far than the switch to Kyle Shanahan in San Fran, which has scored a conference-low 12 points. On a short week, though, who knows what will appear on the TV screen. Well, we kind of know it won't be pretty. McVay looks
