Winners, losers from Browns’ win over Bengals on Thursday Night Football

  Winners, losers from Browns’ win over Bengals on Thursday Night Football The Browns outlasted the Bengals in the battle of the Buckeye state.After having one of the worst quarterback performances in Week 1, Baker Mayfield responded with a gem in Week 2. Facing a much easier opponent, Cleveland’s offense rolled early on Thursday with big plays from Nick Chubb, Odell Beckham Jr. and Mayfield. By halftime, the Browns jumped out to a 21-13 lead.

Here are the biggest winners and losers from Vikings’ stunning overtime win over the Saints in Sunday’s wild-card action. Winner : We like that Kirk Cousins’ clutch gene. It wasn’t always pretty from Cousins. He missed some throws early, but his teammates kept this game alive.

Who needs style points? A win is a win in NFL, and that’s exactly what the Green Bay Packers secured Sunday during 22-0 victory over the Buffalo Bills. It was far from a perfect outing for the Packers , but after the last two weeks, the shutout was a much-needed win .

The Green Bay Packers are now one of eight undefeated teams around the NFL following Sunday’s Week 3 action. Their latest win was among the most-impressive we’ve seen from Aaron Rodgers and Co. in some time.

Hingle-USA TODAY Sports The Green Bay Packers are now one of eight undefeated teams around the NFL following Sunday’s Week 3 action.

Taking on a Saints squad reeling from a Week 2 loss to the Raiders, Green Bay pretty much controlled the momentum on “Sunday Night Football.”

Winners and losers from Seahawks’ thrilling win over Patriots

  Winners and losers from Seahawks’ thrilling win over Patriots Russell Wilson's five touchdown passes lifted the Seahawks over the Patriots on Sunday night, but there were things to like and dislike on both sides of the field.As for Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks, last week’s blowout win over the Atlanta Falcons proved to be no fluke. Wilson is clicking big time. He talled five touchdown passes in Sunday night’s thrilling 35-30 win over New England that culminated in a goal-line stop by Seattle’s defense.

The Green Bay Packers were victorious for the second straight week to start the preseason with a 51-34 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night at Lambeau Field. There were more positives than negatives for the Packers in the win

Here are the winners and losers from Green Bay’s preseason win The Packers certainly won 't mind not seeing No. 19 in uniform on the opposing sideline at Lambeau Field on Sunday. Over four career games against the Packers , Golladay has 14 catches for 371 yards and two scores, including

Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdowns while being protected by his offensive line at a high level. Allen Lazard stepped up big time with Davante Adams sidelined to injury. Meanwhile, Green Bay limited what Drew Brees did down the field in a 37-30 win.

Here are our biggest winners and losers from the Packers’ seven-point victory over New Orleans Sunday night.

Winner: Allen Lazard comes up big in Davante Adams’ absence

A former undrafted free agent out of Iowa State, Lazard stepped up big time with Adams missing some action as a sophomore in 2019. He caught 35 passes for 477 yards while hauling in north of 67% of his targets. Thus far this season, it’s been pretty much the same case. He tallied 108 yards in the first two games. With Adams sidelined Sunday evening to a hamstring injury, Lazard played out of his mind.

The best one-and-done NFL seasons

  The best one-and-done NFL seasons Although the sports world is experiencing unprecedented chaos, the NFL's free agency window remains scheduled to open next week. This could mean standouts like Jadeveon Clowney could be heading elsewhere after previously relocating in 2019

It wasn’t pretty, but there are no style points in the NFL and the Green Bay Packers won ’t need to apologize for a 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday. The victory snaps a three-game losing streak and puts the Packers back above .500 at 5-4 heading into a home game against the Baltimore

It wasn’t simply about that 72-yard catch. Lazard was consistently good against New Orleans. He hauled in 6-of-8 targets for 146 yards, providing Rodgers with the threat he needed on the outside in Adams’ absence. This kid is good.

Loser: Saints wide receivers a complete non-factor

Some of this could have to do with Drew Brees’ struggles getting the ball down the field. That was apparent in Week 2’s loss to the Raiders, too. However, the inability of receivers to step up in Michael Thomas’ stead continues to have an impact on the Saints’ success on offense. That was true Sunday night against Green Bay.

Emmanuel Sanders and Tre’Quan Smith combined to haul in eight passes for 98 yards. Most of those came late in the game with New Orleans forced to abandon the run. The Saints’ leading receiver in this one was Alvin Kamara (more on him later). We’re not 100% sure how sustainable this is moving forward. Perhaps, general manager Mickey Loomis looks to add a reinforcement ahead of the Nov. 3 NFL trade deadline.

The Packers fell to 1-1-1, the first time they’ve been .500 or worse after three games since 2014. Here’s a look at the winners — and many losers In all, this over -officiated game had 17 penalties for 181 yards. Week by week, the NFL gets harder and harder to watch. Between politics, the catch rule

Winner: Great pass protection from Packers offensive line

It wasn’t too long ago that Aaron Rodgers was victimized by brutal offensive line play in front of him. The future Hall of Famer was sacked a combined 85 times in 2018 and 2019. That’s despite the utter brilliance of left tackle David Bakhtiari. Thus far this season, the offensive line has been tremendous. That continued Sunday night against the Saints.

Rodgers was hit a total of three times and sacked one time on 34 drop backs. This enabled him to eat apart a Saints secondary that struggled big time against Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders last week. Through three games, Rodgers has been sacked a grand total of two times. If this keeps up, Green Bay is going to be hard to beat moving forward.

Loser: Drew Brees struggles to get the ball down the field

The future Hall of Famer’s stat line was great Sunday evening. Brees completed 29-of-36 passes for 288 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the losing effort. It’s pretty much the same thing we saw from the 13-time Pro Bowler last week against the Raiders.

Chris Cillizza's winners and losers from the 10th presidential debate. It was an incredibly contentious affair, with candidates shouting at (and over ) one another as they scrambled to draw contrasts with each other in advance of the critical South Carolina primary on Saturday.

Unfortunately, it’s not all about the stats. Once again, Brees was forced to rely on yards after the catch to rack up those totals. For a second consecutive week, the 41-year-old quarterback failed to complete a ball that traveled more than 20 yards down the field. It’s rather obvious that Brees’ arm is nowhere near what it was earlier in his career. How this turns out moving forward on the season will be telling.

Winner: Alvin Kamara is a bad, bad man

Some were concerned about Kamara’s lack of usage last season for the Saints. It seemed to suggest that something might have been up with the former NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Months after the season ended, it was noted that Kamara had been dealing with injuries throughout the campaign. If the first three weeks of the 2020 season are any indication, Kamara is completely healthy.

Including that absurd 52-yard catch and run, the former Tennessee standout tallied 197 total yards on 19 touches in a brilliant overall performance. It was much needed with Drew Brees still struggling to throw down the field and with Michael Thomas sidelined to injury.

Drew Brees is not throwing deep passes this season

  Drew Brees is not throwing deep passes this season Brees did not attempt a pass longer than 20 yards in Week 3. He attempted two such passes in Week 1 and only one in Week 2. Even for Drew Brees this is insane. After attempting only two passes 20-plus yards downfield in Week 1, he attempted just one in Week 2. Tonight vs. Packers: ZERO You can't criticize his arm strength if he doesn't show it. And that's honestly the biggest problem. #Saints pic.twitter.com/kRqGM32Sr2 — Jeff Nowak (@Jeff_Nowak) September 28, 2020 © Derick E.
