'It's time to start looking in the mirror': After the Bears' comeback triumph that wasn't, it's hard to tell what Matt Nagy's team will see

  'It's time to start looking in the mirror': After the Bears' comeback triumph that wasn't, it's hard to tell what Matt Nagy's team will see LONDON - A feeling of agitation pulsed through the visitors locker room at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday night. The Bears had come to the United Kingdom vowing to be focused, energized and totally locked in on this important early October business trip. Yet, as they packed their equipment bags and headed back out into a cool fall night, they were returning home with only feelings of displeasure. They didn’t have a fourth victory to stash away for their long trip home. The souvenir supply from a sloppy evening in an electrified stadium was minimal. A sluggish start and an inability to finish drowned the excitement of a brilliant third-quarter comeback effort.

Eight days away from this year’s trade deadline, two AFC teams have struck a deal. The Raiders agreed to send cornerback Gareon Conley to the Texans in exchange for a third-round pick, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic (on Twitter).

Conley has started every Raiders game this season and will head to a Texans team dealing with injuries at corner. The 2017 first-round pick is signed through the 2020 season and can be controlled through 2021 via a fifth-year option. The Ohio State product has started 20 games over the past two seasons, shaking off an injury-marred rookie slate.

Patriots reportedly trying to acquire a star wide receiver

  Patriots reportedly trying to acquire a star wide receiver The Patriots reportedly would prefer a receiver who could “instantly command a defense’s respect, alleviate Edelman’s burden and help Brady.” Your browser does not support this video require(["binding"], function (binding) { binding("wcVideoPlayer", "#video_player_815f2ef7-c86d-4aab-a018-3eb6be3a6223").all(); }); Video by NFL.comSo who is the team eyeing? Howe says there’s hope within the Patriots organization that they could pry wideout Stefon Diggs away from the Vikings.

This marks yet another high 2020 pick the Texans have surrendered. They traded their 2020 first-rounder in the Laremy Tunsil deal and are likely to send a third-rounder to the Browns for Duke Johnson. The Texans owned the Seahawks’ third-rounder from the Jadeveon Clowney deal; that pick will now go to the Raiders. This leaves Houston with only its second-rounder on Days 1-2 of next year’s draft.

This marks an interesting deal between two teams contending in the AFC. Although the Raiders did not fare well in Green Bay on Sunday, they remain 3-3. They have struggled in pass defense this season, with Aaron Rodgers‘ historic day the most recent reminder. Oakland also added two corners in this year’s draft — second-rounder Trayvon Mullen and fourth-rounder Isaiah Johnson — and signed Nevin Lawson. Lamarcus Joyner has also worked in the slot as a Raider. Johnson is expected to make his debut soon, and this transaction figures to mean more Mullen snaps going forward.

Six teams on upset alert in NFL Week 7

  Six teams on upset alert in NFL Week 7 Week 7 offers plenty of intriguing matchups, and these six teams are on upset watch.We’re putting six teams on upset alert heading into Sunday’s NFL Week 7 action, and chances are at least a few of them will succumb.

The Texans lost Bradley Roby, also an Ohio State-produced first-rounder, and on Sunday saw veteran Johnathan Joseph carted off the field Sunday. They drafted Lonnie Johnson in Round 2, but he has graded as Pro Football Focus’ second-worst cornerback this season. The 4-3 team will add Conley to the mix, and he should be set to contribute immediately. PFF has Conley slotted as this year’s No. 82 overall corner. He has four career interceptions, one of which coming this season.

Conley, 24, represents yet another Reggie McKenzie-era first-rounder the Jon Gruden regime has jettisoned. Gruden shipped out Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper in trades last season and has now dealt away McKenzie’s final first-round pick as Raiders GM. Karl Joseph is the last remaining McKenzie first-rounder on the Raiders’ roster.

Indy (4-2) has won three straight in the series and took over the early season lead in the AFC South. The loss snapped Houston's two-game winning streak. Brissett was masterful most of the day. He was 26 of 39 with 326 yards, and in a game the Colts only produced 62 yards rushing, they needed Brissett to be at his best — and he was."It just says he's legit, he's the man," coach Frank Reich said of Brissett.
