A 24-17 victory Sunday wasn’t just the 25th time Tom Brady has defeated the Jets — it also pushed the future Hall of Famer into a class of his own when it comes to winning regular season games.
The Vikings have been extremely inconsistent on offense through the first four weeks of the season, scoring over 28 points and winning by double digits in both of their wins and being held to under 10 points in each of their losses.
Case Keenum was fantastic with 369 passing yards and three passing touchdowns against Tampa Bay two weeks ago, but he managed only 219 passing yards with no touchdowns last week against Detroit. Minnesota hopes to get starter Sam Bradford back from his knee injury this week.
The Broncos’ rushing prowess combined with their rush defense allows them to control the pace of play. This benefits the Broncos, who won’t win shootouts due to quarterback Trevor Siemian’s limitations. Since a Week 2 rout of the Cowboys, the Broncos haven’t scored more than 16 points in a single game.
Jacoby Brissett has started the past five games at quarterback. Scott Tolzien started the season opener.
The Colts (2-4) will host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon.
It was a 2-1 split decision from the three judges. The dissenting judge wrote in his decision that the NFL’s investigation and disciplinary process is “arguably unfair,” according to Gabe Feldman, the director of Tulane University’s sports law program. The other two judges ruled in favor of the league because Elliott’s attorneys filed the initial lawsuit before the NFL’s appeals process was complete.
It is, essentially, a labor issue that is at the crux of this battle in the courts, not whether Elliott is innocent or guilty.
