Safe to say that a favorite topic around Sunday’s tailgates was Saturday’s late-night Marx Brothers movie on national TV, featuring a core melt by the Washington State Cougars – turnovers ordered in bulk, tackling slapstick, tempo stubbornness, suspect clock management and a blown 32-point lead. Then the locals had to endure the Seahawks’ various brain locks.
The Seahawks suffered one of the more embarrassing home losses in their recent history, 33-27 against a Saints team playing without future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees.
It’s not that the New Orleans Saints haven’t decided who their starting quarterback will be Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, it’s just that they’ve decided not to say.
Saints, Steelers see their title hopes damaged with major injuries to Brees, Roethlisberger.
Teddy Bridgewater says he hasn’t had any setbacks in his recovery from the massive injury to his left knee. He went down during a non-contact drill in practice with the Minnesota Vikings nearly a year ago. Speaking to reporters for the first time since he was hurt, Bridgewater said he’s certain he’ll return to game action.
NFL notes: Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a “significant” knee injury in practice Tuesday and the team was awaiting tests to determine how long he might be out.
Big Ben is back on the injury list. Making his second start since returning from a knee injury, Roethlisberger injured his left foot midway through the fourth quarter of a 38-35 win against Oakland on Sunday. He was taken to the locker room on a cart and the Steelers announced Roethlisberger eventually left Heinz Field to undergo further evaluation.
The Oakland Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen on Monday night four games into his third season. The decision was announced soon after the Raiders (0-4) returned from London, where they lost their 10th straight game dating to last season, 34-14 to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The firing was first reported by Fox Sports.
Teddy Bridgewater gave the giddy fans in Minneapolis chanting his first name a pair of go-ahead touchdown throws to cheer for in the fourth quarter, giving the Minnesota Vikings a 30-28 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night. Bridgewater floated a back-shoulder fade pass from 2 yards out to Rodney Smith with 18 seconds remaining for the lead, after the Cardinals had gone ahead on a bizarre fourth-down score about a minute earlier.
Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater announced that he will forgo his senior season with the No. 18 Cardinals and enter the NFL draft. Projected as a first-round selection and possibly the first QB taken this spring, Bridgewater (pictured) passed for 3,970 yards and a school-record 31 touchdowns this season, including a career-best 447 yards with three TDs in Saturday’s 36-9 rout of Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Bridgewater said in a release that the decision “was extremely difficult.” Also, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney says he will enter for the NFL draft. Likely the top overall talent in the class, Clowney finished his college career with five tackles on Wednesday in the Gamecocks’ 34-24 victory over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl. – Associated Press
