Burfict was tossed a play after he drew a flag for a late hit.

It was more interesting than it needed to be against the 49ers. But the Redskins now have beaten both of their former offensive coordinators turned head coaches, the Rams’ McVay and the Niners’ Kyle Shanahan, and there is every reason to believe that they will be the primary challenger to the Eagles in the NFC East.

He initially refused to leave the field and when he did, it was with panache. He argued with fans and walked off giving the money sign made famous by Johnny Manziel.

A scary scene in Buffalo: New Orleans Saints running back Daniel Lasco was placed on a stretcher and taken off the field by ambulance after he was injured on a kickoff in Buffalo.

Surrounded by most of his teammates, Lasco, who was hurt on a nasty collision with his head down, raised his right hand as he was loaded into the ambulance. The Saints issued a statement that Lasco has feeling in his extremities and is being attended to by the team’s doctor at the hospital.

The Niners lost another game Sunday. But they may have found an interesting QB prospect in C.J. Beathard, as the grandson of former Redskins GM Bobby Beathard had some good moments at FedEx Field. There’s no reason not to stick with him.

Seahawks’ procedure questioned: The NFL and NFLPA are looking into whether the Seahawks followed concussion protocol in evaluating Russell Wilson on Thursday night. Wilson missed only one play, returning to the game the next time the Seahawks had the ball.

Hernandez had extensive brain degeneration: A Boston University researcher revealed that an examination of the brain of Aaron Hernandez showed that he suffered the most severe chronic traumatic encephalopathy found so far in a person of his age.

Packers lose two RBs: Aaron Jones, Green Bay’s leading rusher was Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys carted off the field after suffering a knee injury in the first quarter on a rainy field in Chicago. He was ruled out for the rest of the game. Later, Ty Montgomery was ruled out due to a rib injury. Montgomery missed time earlier this season due to broken ribs. Jamaal Williams is now the only Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys healthy running back for Green Bay.

The shutout loss at home to the Ravens was not exactly the start the Bengals anticipated for what they hope will be a bounce-back season.

QB Andy Dalton was particularly awful in a four-interception, five-sack showing. How long will he be allowed to continue to struggle like that before the Bengals would consider making a move to backup AJ McCarron?

After three straight seasons of not topping the six-win mark, the Bears have finally had enough of John Fox. Although the team dumped Fox, they decided to hold on to general manager Ryan Pace, who was given a four-year extension on Jan. 1, which now gives him the opportunity to continue building his vision of a winner in Chicago despite posting a 14-34 record over the last three seasons.

The first decision Pace made under his new deal was the hiring of Nagy as the team’s new coach. The upcoming season will mark Nagy’s first year as a NFL head coach. Before signing on with the Bears, Nagy served as an offensive coordinator (2016-17) and quarterbacks coach in Kansas City (2013-15). Before that, Nagy worked with the Eagles, where he held various jobs since first being hired by the team in 2008.

Matt Patricia is a virtual lock to be the next coach of the Detroit Lions, CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Patricia, 43, has served as the Patriots defensive coordinator for the last six seasons, and in each New England finished in the top 10 in points allowed. That includes 2017, a season where the Patriots took a lot of heat for a defense that gave up plenty of yardage but still finished fifth in points allowed.

Patricia will join a Lions team with a familiar face on the personnel side in general manager Bob Quinn, who spent 16 years in the Patriots organization before being hired by the Lions two years ago. Patricia will be taking over for Jim Caldwell, who went 36-28 in four seasons with the Lions that included two trips to the playoffs and three years above .500.

Capers had been with the team since 2009, but the Packers had not ranked inside the top 10 in yards or points allowed since his second season as coordinator. The Green Bay Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys defense struggled with injuries the last couple seasons, but the team Cheap Blank Hockey Jerseys apparently feels that it’s time to change the voice giving the instructions on that side of the ball.

The hit by Anthony Barr that may have ended Aaron Rodgers’s season wasn’t dirty and it wasn’t illegal.

The Rams are a first-place team after six games and still way ahead of any realistic rebuilding schedule under first-year coach Sean McVay after the triumph over the Jaguars. They probably aren’t the team to beat in the NFC West, not after losing to the Seahawks a couple weeks ago. But they show no signs at this point of disappearing from the race.

But could it have been avoided? Perhaps. Did Barr drive Rodgers’s shoulder unnecessarily into the turf? Maybe. It’s likely that the Packers will remember that.

Well, Cam Newton had been playing like an MVP again before the clunker in Thursday night’s home loss to the Eagles. But that’s going to happen sometimes. The Panthers should stick to the plan of relying on Newton as a pocket passer and not putting his well-being in jeopardy with too many dashes from the pocket.

Rams keep rolling: Jared Goff threw for 355 yards and Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys three touchdowns and the Los Angeles Rams trounced the Houston Texans, 33-7. The Rams have won four in a row and six of their last seven games, and they sit atop the NFC West at 7-2, a full game ahead of the Seattle Seahawks.

So close and yet…: The Cleveland Browns flirted with victory only to revert to form, falling to 0-9 in a 38-24 loss to the Lions, who scored twice in the fourth quarter, in Detroit.

The Falcons return from their bye with, they hope, WR Julio Jones ready to play Sunday without missing any games due to his hip injury. The playing status of pass rusher Vic Beasley, out since Week 2 because of a hamstring injury, is to be determined as the week progresses.

The Lions are good but perhaps not quite good enough to match up with the NFC’s best teams, as narrow losses to the Falcons and Panthers demonstrate. Now QB Matthew Stafford is dealing with hamstring and ankle injuries heading into Sunday’s game at New Orleans.

SMU’s best defender who had a tremendous senior season, Lawler has been a force over the last two years. An ideally built pass-rushing defensive end, he engages on the perimeter with great strength, converting speed to power easily and consistently winning on isolation Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys situations.
