The Chiefs are visiting the Rams in one of the biggest games of the NFL season and a possible Super Bowl preview. The game was originally scheduled for Mexico City before poor field conditions at Azteca Stadium prompted the NFL to move the game to California on six days’ notice.
Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald has been fined $23,395 by the NFL. Donald was fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness and $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct. Donald got into a scuffle on the sideline with Seattle’s Justin Britt in the fourth quarter of the Rams’ win over Seattle last Sunday.
The Seahawks’ 27-24 win over Green Bay snapped a two-game losing streak and helped create a possible path to the postseason for Seattle. There are still challenges ahead, but Seattle is now in the conversation. Coach Pete Carroll celebrated by riding Seattle’s waterfront Ferris wheel.
The Seahawks earned themselves some breathing room with a much-needed win over the Packers. And they did it by locking down on that fourth quarter finish, and riding their run game to victory.
Russell Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seattle Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers. In a key matchup in the race for the two NFC wild-card spots, Seattle overcame an early 14-3 deficit.
For the fifth straight regular season – and the seventh time overall since 2012 – Green Bay and Seattle will meet again on Thursday night, but this time it’s positioning in a jumbled NFC playoff picture at stake.
For most of his career, the fourth quarter is where Russell Wilson has thrived. His late game heroics of leading comebacks in the fourth quarter or overtime to win games take up nearly an entire page of Seattle’s weekly game notes.
The idea the Seattle Seahawks would score 31 points and lose used to be unfathomable with Pete Carroll in charge.
The NFL has moved the Los Angeles Rams’ Monday night showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs from Mexico City to Los Angeles due to the poor condition of the field at Azteca Stadium. The league made its decision just six days before one of the most-anticipated regular-season games of the year. Recent rains and several big events at Azteca combined to damage the field, and the league determined it was unplayable.
Le’Veon Bell won’t play in 2018. The star running back declined to sign his one-year $14.4 million franchise tender with the Pittsburgh Steelers by Tuesday’s deadline, making him ineligible to suit up for the AFC North-leading Steelers or anyone else this season.
Eli Manning threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard with 53 seconds left and the New York Giants snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the San Francisco 49ers 27-23 on Monday night.
Los Angeles receiver and former EWU standout Cooper Kupp is out for the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee, depriving the Rams’ offense of a major contributor heading into a showdown with Kansas City.
Tom Brady added another big chunk of NFL history to his resume. The Tennessee Titans made sure the Patriots quarterback didn’t finish his 300th game. The Titans sacked Brady three times and hit him repeatedly as they beat New England 34-10 Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots in Mike Vrabel’s first game as head coach against the team he helped win three Super Bowls.
Tom Brady added another big chunk of NFL history to his resume. The Tennessee Titans made sure the Patriots quarterback didn’t finish his 300th game by hitting him over and over again. The Titans sacked Brady three times and hit him six more times as they beat New England 34-10 Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots in Mike Vrabel’s first game as head coach against the team he helped win three Super Bowls.
Brandin Cooks rushed for a 9-yard touchdown with 5:49 to play on the first snap after Dante Fowler forced and recovered a fumble by Russell Wilson, and the Los Angeles Rams bounced back from their first loss of the season with a 36-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
When the Seahawks traveled to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Sunday to battle the Rams, it gave Eastern Washington’s Cooper Kupp another opportunity to take on his home state team.
The Los Angeles Rams head into their meeting with Seattle this weekend with a chance to essentially end the NFC West race with seven weeks to go. The Rams are returning from their first loss of the season in New Orleans last week. Their win in Seattle five weeks ago left the Seahawks frustrated with their inability to finish strong against their division rivals.
Dez Bryant’s season is over before it had even begun. The New Orleans Saints have placed the newly acquired Bryant on injured reserve and promoted receiver Keith Kirkwood from the practice squad to the active roster before Sunday’s game at Cincinnati. Bryant was injured during his second practice with New Orleans on Friday. A person familiar with the situation says Bryant has a torn Achilles tendon.
Newly acquired Saints receiver Dez Bryant has been injured in just his second practice with New Orleans. The team’s injury report on Friday has listed Bryant as questionable for Sunday’s game in Cincinnati with an ankle injury. However, Bryant has indicated on social media that the injury could be serious. He posted on Twitter that overcoming it will be the “ultimate test.”
The Los Angeles Rams have canceled practice after a wildfire forced about 20 players and coaches to evacuate their homes. The Rams will cram their normal Friday preparations into a workout at the University of Southern California on Saturday before they face the Seattle Seahawks at the Coliseum on Sunday. About 45 Rams employees were evacuated, although coach Sean McVay doesn’t believe any homes have been lost.
