NFL week 2: Cam Newton vs Tyrod Taylor

The Bills travel to Carolina this weekend. With both teams coming off week 1 victories, here is a match-up where the defensive coordinator left to become a head coach. Sean McDermott worked for Ron Rivera and the Panthers, tag-teaming the defensive game-plan to put the Panthers D on the top shelf of the league. Now,…

Rookie QBs Heading Into Week 2

Browns: QB DeShone Kizer DeShone Kizer played solid football against the Black and Yellow. The rookie went 20/30 for 222 yards, rushing and throwing for a touchdown.

Pro Bowl running back, Ezekiel Elliott, will get to suit up for that game because the ruling on his appeal came after a certain deadline. Oh, whatever! We all know that week 1, America’s Team going against Big…

NFL 8/37/17: Haden to PIT, Receiver News

When it comes to Joe Haden getting released, I think Cleveland did the Pro Bowl veteran a favor. Perhaps they should have made the move earlier in the offseason, but at least the corner joins a playoff roster with Super Bowl aspirations. The Browns could have chosen to pay him and stay the course, which…
