Busters vs Steelers

Brandon Parker
It hasn’t been a good rookie season for this third-round rookie tackle. He managed not to upend the Raiders opening drive, but he showed up on the second one. First he was flagged for illegal formation and on the next play he ended up flat on his face to give up the sack on Carr for a ten-yard loss. In third and 21 from their own 9-yard-line, they opted for a short pass to give themselves some breathing room to punt.
Parker would also allow his man to bat down a Carr pass on third down in the second quarter, was called for holding on third down in the third quarter and Carr fumbled it on the next play.
He threatened to stall the Raiders’ go-ahead scoring drive in the fourth quarter when he was flagged for a false start, leading to a third and five. Then giving up a pressure to force Carr to throw the ball away to set up third and 8.

The Dallas Cowboys are winners of five straight games, and both Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper posted some career highs during their latest victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
When you see a sentence like that you assume all is well offensively, but such isn’t the case for the Cowboys. Looking at Dallas objectively, there’s no denying that their offense struggles putting points on the board. They went the last three quarters of the New Orleans game and the first three quarters of the Philadelphia game without scoring a single touchdown. That’s six straight quarters.
It’s very difficult to imagine the Cowboys moving on from Jason Garrett this offseason as he has, well, won five games in a row and is on the verge of his third division title in five seasons.

In the aftermath of Sunday’s win over the Eagles, you’ve probably been reading all sorts of impressive numbers about Dak Prescott’s performance. How he engineered his 13th game-winning drive, how he now has the second-most wins since 2016 behind only Tom Brady, and much more. And all of that is hugely impressive.
But what very few people know is that Prescott achieved an even rarer statistical milestone for just the second time in his career on Sunday, the QB Trifecta.
In 1961, Y.A. Tittle of the New York Giants became the first quarterback in modern NFL history to complete a QB Trifecta by passing for more than three hundred yards, completing at least three quarters of his passes and throwing three or more touchdowns.

Last week, it became public knowledge that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins had aggravated his foot injury and would be out for the Baltimore Ravens game on Sunday.
Soon after, we learned that the timetable for his return is four to six weeks — but that clock started running when the original injury occurred in Week 9. So his status at this point is day-to-day.
It has been reported that the Chiefs — for precautionary reasons — are considering shutting Watkins down until the playoffs. Late last week — in a move that is likely related to Watkins’ status — the Chiefs signed former first-round draft pick Kelvin Benjamin to a veteran minimum contract. He didn’t play against the Ravens, but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid sounded optimistic that he could be used in some packaged plays against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday.
