Jaguars name Doug Marrone as interim head coach
The question headed in isn’t so much whether Cam Newton will test Norman, but whether he can test anyone the way he is throwing the ball right now. While the Panthers have split their past four games, Newton has completed just 43% of his passes (52 of 121) during that stretch. Last week, he was 10-of-27 against the Chargers, and his team won by a dozen points anyway. The issues are not all on Newton—he has had very little help from his receivers—but he is trending in the wrong direction headed into this game.
So, if Newton can find even moderate success, the onus could fall on Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins to respond with a big night. Fortunately for him, he gets to face that oft-overmatched, Norman-less Panthers secondary. He also has at his service a loaded group of playmakers, which Monday is expected to again include tight end Jordan Reed (shoulder).wholesalejerseysi,
Despite being currently in line to become a free agent in March, Pryor is planning to finish out the season despite an injury in his finger. Citing a source, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Pryor has ligament damage, while longtime Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, also citing a source, wrote it’s “possible” Pryor has damage and will undergo an MRI and seek a second opinion.Atlanta Braves Long Sleeve MLB T-Shirt Grey
Turning to Savage for this week’s game is the right move, even though he had just 19 career passes before Sunday and has never started an NFL game. It speaks to how bad Osweiler has been that the Texans’ only option this week was giving Savage his first start with a division title still in the balance.
The Cowboys prevailed 26-20, completing the lucrative parlays and sending CG Technology to another losing Sunday during what has been a tough six-week stretch for the house.cheapujerseys,
Savage threw for 260 yards in a little less than three quarters on Sunday, which almost eclipsed Osweiler’s season high of 269 yards. Osweiler threw two awful interceptions early in Sunday’s game, and the Texans had seen enough.
Bill O’Brien is far from a hot seat after his gutsy benching of $72 million man Brock Osweiler. What a call, one that seems like it was a long time coming. After Week 5, CBS’s Jason LaCanfora reported that Osweiler and O’Brien had a spat after the quarterback openly objected to some playcalling after reviewing film. (O’Brien denied this.) It is also believed Texans management, and not O’Brien, pushed for the Osweiler signing. When Tom Savage guides the Texans to their first-ever Super Bowl, at home, every team with the exception of New England, should be giving O’Brien $72 million to come coach.
