Terrelle Pyror’s injury, performance concerns Raiders

The Oakland Raiders are worried about Terrelle Pryor.

“It wasn’t something that we thought was going to be a big factor going into the game. But, obviously, it was a factor,” Allen told reporters, per the Bay Area News Group.
Something even more alarming has been Pryor’s play over the past month. The former Ohio State star has been a disaster in the last four games, throwing eight interceptions while finding the end zone once.

Overall, Pryor has thrown for 1,559 yards with a 58.9 completion percentage and only five touchdowns against 10 interceptions. He has also run for a team-leading 504 yards.

Lets be honest right off the bat, the Bengals had no business having a shot to win that game Sunday anyway. Their quarterback Andy Dalton appeared to be channeling Trent Dilfer during his Bucs years for most of the game. Their defense played well most of the day, but still gave up two touchdowns to one of the worst, most off-kilter offenses in the league right now. The only reason Bernard was even in position to have that epic brain fart was because the Ravens defensive backs thought it would be fun to play volleyball and set the football rather than spike it on the last play of the game. A.J. Green caught what was probably his easiest touchdown of his career.

And yet, there they were. Trying to convert a fourth-and-2 from the Ravens 33-yard line, Bernard caught a little swing pass to the right side of the line. Turns out that was probably not a good play call because Ravens safety James Ihedigbo was right in Bernard’s face as he caught Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike the Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping ball. The Bengals aren’t going to get the first down, which means it will probably be the Ravens ball around their own 35 or so, not really a big deal.

This is where the brain fart comes in.

There wasn’t much complexity to the routes Smith was running, but the Rams had were unwilling to adjust after they pulled Johnson out of coverage in the first quarter.

Smith sells the outside move while Jenkins Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike attempts to get hands on the receiver. He isn’t able to make contact, which results in Smith getting free release into the center of the field and forces the cornerback to play catchup.

This is a case where safety coverage would have really helped, but there was nobody available as the Rams chose to play one-deep. St. Louis chose to follow a model that hurt the Giants and Vikings in their losses.

After a fast start to the season, the Titans have now lost three in a row. Sure, Mike Munchak’s crew — the Munch Bunch? — played Kansas City and Seattle closer, but even close losses add up. Jake Locker probably could have used another week of rest, especially with the bye in Week 8.

The jump from Mark Sanchez to Geno Smith Cheap Authentic Jerseys must feel like liberation, from a cell block to a Parisian burlesque. And Geno is prone to some up and down play. Last week it was down; this week it was up. He threw for 233 yards and one touchdown. He also added a score on the ground, but he needs to work on that spike. Genofailspike_medium

Beating a confused Buccaneers team was a nice way for the Falcons to come out of a bye week. Atlanta’s start to the season is still going to make it next to impossible to catch the Saints in the NFC South, and a wild card spot isn’t very realistic either. However, the Falcons should still be a competitive team, just prone to the occasional drubbing.

I don’t know about mixing Bryant McKinnie back in with the city of Miami. But it would be hard to have pass protection much worse that Miami’s right now. At one point it looked like Mario Williams would disembowel Ryan Tannehill on Sunday. He was sacked twice, hit seven and hurried another 14 times. That can’t keep happening.

Jonathan Toews Reaches 250 Goal Plateau Tuesday

During the Chicago Blackhawks’ game against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night, team captain Jonathan Toews reached a very special milestone that no Hawks player has reached in 15 years.

With his first period goal, Toews became Blackhawks player to reach 250 goals with the organization since Tony Amonte reached that milestone in 2001 . The goal, a shorthanded tally in the first period, puts Toews just two goals behind Kenny Wharram for ninth place on the team’s all-time scoring list.

Things got off to a sluggish start for both teams, but the Blackhawks were able to draw first blood in the contest. Following a mad netfront scramble, Richard Panik found a loose puck and was able to quickly fire a wrist shot past Louis Domingue to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead.

Despite the closeness of the race between Toews and Kane, the captain is closing in on some noteworthy names on the team’s all-time list. He is currently just eight goals behind Bill Moisenko for eighth on the list, and he trails Jeremy Roenick by 17 tallies. Tony Amonte is 18 clear of Toews, and Dennis Hull is 48 up, so the Blackhawks’ captain could make some serious progress on the list in the next year or two.
