Follow here for frequent updates and developments from all-Sunday NFL games. Check back after “Sunday Night Football” for a look at the biggest moments and trends to watch.
Just like NFL’s “Breakfast at Wembley” begins to begin, Sunday’s biggest early news comes back in the United States with official words that Patriots tight than Rob Gronkowski will not play against Bears.
Gronkowski, who handles ankle and back injuries, did not make the trip with the team to Chicago, but is expected to be ready to play October 29 against the bills. Bears is one of five teams that Tom Brady has never lost, and if that strike continues, it will be without the tight end.
Titans and Chargers are on their way in London (on CBS) with chargers up 10-6 in half-time. Phillip Rivers has completed 5-of-8 passes for 153 meters and a touchdown; Marcus Mariota has completed 14-of-18 passes for 150 meters, with an interception just before half.
Charges ended a Titans run with a Denzel Perryman interception just before half, then came out and scored with Rivers to beat Tyrell Williams with a 55-yard touchdown pass for a 17-6 lead. It’s Rivers’ second 50+ -godis TD pass in the game. (The other was a 75-yarder to Williams in the first quarter.)
Nobody can get enough crimes: Look no further than last Sunday night’s game for a glimpse of what makes NFL owners and officials laugh. The managers and patriots raised 83 points, which used to be a ridiculous anomaly. This year there have already been three games in which both teams made at least 40 points. In the previous four years there were only two . Is it the week of defense adjusting? Probably not, given that what happens to a large extent using rules changes that protects quarterbacks and emphasizes security.
It just makes you wonder: What’s the limit?
What is better than offensive explosions? Close game, that’s what. During the first six weeks, 54 games have been determined by one point, according to NFL, and it links the season 1999 to most in the NFL story. Twenty-one of these games have been determined by three or fewer points, second most in NFL history through week 6 (35 years in 1999). In each of the first six weeks, at least one game has gone to overtime, the first time that has happened since the regular season rule was introduced in 1974.
A Broadcast: For the first time Since 1993, CBS will test a Cowboys Redskins game, with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo who makes the call from FedEx Field. “I can not even hold my excitement,” said Jim Nantz Posten Ben Strauss. “It will be 9,065 days since I did it last.” [Read more]
Breeds are again: Drew Brees will try to be the third NFL player who has beat all 32 teams when Saints play the Ravens, against which he is 0-4. (The other two QBs Peyton Manning and Brett Favre.) And with their next touchdown pass, Brees will join Manning, Favre and Tom Brady, as the only NFL story players have thrown 500.
