Broncos open up 13-0 lead over Jets

The Broncos have lost eight straight games, but they’ve been the better team through the first two quarters of Sunday’s game against the Jets. The Broncos scored on their opening possession, forced a turnover and then got a Demaryius Thomas touchdown to put up 10 quick points at home on Sunday. They’d add another takeaway [more]

Week 14 injury report roundup

Week 14 kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Falcons and it continues with 14 more games on Sunday, which means that the 28 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.

Marcus Peters fined $24,309 for flag-throwing incident

Marcus Peters has not had a good week.

Jets OC John Morton endorses another year of Josh McCown

Josh McCown is installed as the Jets starter for the rest of the season and the veteran has played well enough this year that there’s already conversation about bringing him back for another spin. Coach Todd Bowles said at his Thursday press conference that he’s not thinking that far ahead, but offensive coordinator John Morton [more]

Jermaine Kearse, Robby Anderson keep undrafted beginning in mind

The Jets landed Jermaine Kearse in a trade just before the start of the regular season in a move that didn’t do much to change the general consensus that the wide receiver group was going to be a weak one. Thanks to Kearse and Robby Anderson, it has not played out that way. Both players [more]

Report: Jets done with Muhammad Wilkerson after this season

The Jets are apparently fed up with Muhammad Wilkerson‘s act, beyond the quarter-long benching last week for being late. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, a team source said “He’s gone,” after last week’s last straw. While he’s capable of great play, he’s also on the kind of contract for which [more]

Todd Bowles: Josh McCown is our starter for the rest of the season

When the 2017 season got underway, there were a lot of people who thought that the Jets would be the Jersey-based team changing head coaches and starting multiple quarterbacks. Unless injury forces them to change their plans, it looks like the Giants will be the only team in the Garden State to do either of [more]

Josh McCown named AFC offensive player of the week

Josh McCown was supposed to be a placeholder. Or a bridge. Or just the guy holding wheel of the tank. Instead, he’s on a roll. The Jets quarterback was named AFC offensive player of the week, after winning last week’s shootout against the Chiefs. McCown was 26-of-36 passing for 331 yards and a touchdown, and [more]

Report: Muhammad Wilkerson is late a lot

Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson was benched for a quarter Sunday, after he was late to a team meeting the day before. Jets coach Todd Bowles said afterward he thought Wilkerson (and linebacker Darron Lee) were in the process of trying to earn his trust back. That might be a tougher battle for Wilkerson, who [more]

Todd Bowles: Disciplined players lost trust, have to earn it back

The Jets had a surprise on their inactive list for last Sunday’s game against the Chiefs when starting linebacker Darron Lee was left out of the lineup for the first time this season. Lee confirmed his change in role was due to a violation of team rules, reportedly a late arrival to practice on Saturday, [more]

Bengals move into top 10 (in 2018 NFL Draft order)

The Bengals lost last night, but moved up a few spots in the draft order, which is all the consolation you get this time of year when you’re not in the playoff mix. Of course, the Browns (0-12) would still pick first in the 2018 NFL Draft if the season ended today. Also, a lot [more]

AFC playoff picture: Steelers stay on top

It took a rally from 13 points down in the fourth quarter on an injury-filled night in Cincinnati, but the Steelers wound up with another win that keeps them in the No. 1 spot in the AFC playoff picture for another week. The picture at the top will get more definitive when the Patriots and [more]

Broncos sticking with Trevor Siemian this week

In a move that says a lot more about Brock Osweiler than it does Trevor Siemian, the Broncos are sticking with Trevor Siemian this week. That’s the word from Mike Klis of KUSA, who reports that Siemian will start again this week against the Jets after yesterday’s dreadful showing against the Dolphins. Siemian threw three [more]

Herm Edwards is back, at the college level

Nine years after he pressed “pause” on his football coaching career, the “play” button has been pressed. But at a very different level of the sport. Herm Edwards, former coach of the Jets and Chiefs, has been named head coach at Arizona State. The hire is subject to the approval of the¬†Arizona Board of Regents, [more]
