C Chase Roullier on crutches. Ron Rivera called it a lower leg injury. His right leg was wrapped/in a sleeve.
Feels silly bringing this up knowing how the rest of the game unfolded, but Christian Holmes not downing this punt from Tress was unfortunate. Lions would’ve started from 2-yard line if he did. Instead, they begin at 20 and go on to kick a FG pic.twitter.com/OAsYwHjcb8
If I was a special teams coach, I’d have my kicker kick it high and short of the goal line every time to have Milne return it. Isn’t very sudden. You’re going to get to him well before the 25 yard line.
Ron Rivera also said this about Jamin Davis “we are running out of time. We got to go out and got to be consistent” #HTTC
Ron Rivera added “if you want to blame everybody, you have to blame us all.” #HTTC pic.twitter.com/ytBCNOT02r
Forest said of the second half: “We tightened up on defense, came out and got a few stops and we corrected our coverage.”
That’s the sixth time in the last 19 games that Washington has allowed 400 or more yards in a game. They have lost each time.
Maybe we’ll get Curl and Forrest on the field at the same time next week. Maybe that’ll help…I dunno. Somethin’.
Just two games but here’s what I see with Wentz:
1. Can make every throw.
2. Not afraid to push it down field.
3. Makes “what the hell was that” throws.
4. Makes “wow, did you see that throw”.
5. Holds the ball too long at times.
6. Fights adversity and throws you back in it.
The Commanders first 7 drives:
Yet, they still managed to score 27 with no defensive turnovers.#HTTC
Four if you count the free kick return!
D’Andre Swift turned this into a TD pic.twitter.com/M4gwIsH7Aw
Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted. The dude fell down and no one laid a hand on him during the entire play
Yes you did pic.twitter.com/pdffxANslE
With @RealBramW discussing what the hell happened Sunday. As bad a first half as we’ve seen in a while. Why can’t the defense get it right? Explosive O but took a while. Some injury updates. @ESPNRichmond https://t.co/RilNdNT6Wa
Today in the NFL:
The #Jets were down 30-17 with 1:55 left in the game and won.
The #Dolphins were down 35-14 at the start of the 4th quarter and won.
The #Cardinals were down 20-0 at halftime and 23-7 at the start of the 4th quarter and won.
Charles Leno Jr said at halftime, “you don’t expect to be in that situation but who are we going to be? Are we going to be a team that lays down or a team that fights. You clearly saw what type of team we are.”
What a grab by @JahanDotson‼️
LB Cole Holcomb, CB Kendall Fuller and S Darrick Forrest played all 61 def. snaps.
DT Jon Allen, who was supposed to be a pitch count before injuries to Daniel Wise and Casey Toohill, played 52. pic.twitter.com/6uc6adgccO

#Giants WR Kenny Golladay played just two snaps today and was not targeted.
He has the largest cap hit among all receivers in the NFL: $21,150,000
Has been a rough signing so far (made by the previous regime).

I did not expect the Cincinnati Bengals to be last in offensive DVOA after two weeks.
Here’s Joe Burrow yelling to Zac Taylor: “No empty set.”
You can actually hear him say it. #Bengals used Joe Mixon as a blocker the next play. Burrow was sacked. Led to a FG. pic.twitter.com/dyOBm1GSiP
Tom Brady will have a “veteran rest” day off every Wednesday for the rest of the season with the Buccaneers, per @RapSheet pic.twitter.com/hW2onoiDI0
The Colts and their owner deserve every bit of karma that is coming their way. They got shut out by the Jaguars and Matt Ryan threw 3 interceptions. The way they trashed Wentz on the way out the door means they deserve everything they’re getting.
Carson Wentz through 2 games
57 of 87 — 65% comp
So far he has not been the issue #HTTC
This was not close.
A flea-flicker attempt where Wentz and the deep receiver were absolutely not on the same page.
