Report: NFL open to team-by-team bubble for rest of season

  Report: NFL open to team-by-team bubble for rest of season The NFL would be willing to put teams in hotels for the remainder of the season in something of a team-by-team bubble. A problem, however, could be the NFLPA, which objected to such a proposal previously. Players could be willing to go along with the proposal. With multiple Week 4 games affected by positive COVID-19 tests, the possibility of major changes might be more realistic. Players could be willing to make some sacrifices to finish the season and collect a full year’s worth of paychecks.It’s worth noting that one team essentially mimicked this idea by forming its own bubble during training camp.

The Eagles lead the NFC East with a 1-2-1 record. We ask Jordan Palmer what kind of adjustments that team needs to make going forward.

The Eagles dropped their third straight to fall to 5- 7 . Even if they could, even if they staggered into the playoffs by winning the sorry NFC East , how could you take them seriously? I’ve won several local and national awards from the Pro Basketball Writers’ Association, North Jersey Press Club and

It took a last-second field goal by the Dallas Cowboys to beat the New York Giants and thus knock the Philadelphia Eagles out of first place with their underwhelming 1-3-1 record.

Still, the Eagles are just one half-game behind Dallas (2-3) with 11 games left. The Cowboys, meanwhile, just lost star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season after he suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle.

  NFL implements COVID policy changes; Raiders players fined In response to the growing number of positive COVID-19 tests around the league, the NFL is taking action. In a call with all 32 teams the league office laid out a slew of new policy changes, and sternly warned teams about the consequences of not following them. © Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports In the memo recapping the call, which you can read courtesy of this tweet from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, they laid out some new protocols.

Washington not only benched quarterback Dwayne Haskins but moved him down to third string. The Giants are 0-5 and without star running back Saquon Barkley, who tore his ACL last month.

So what would it take for the Eagles to win the NFC East, easily the worst division in the NFL?

OPINION: Jerry Jones has plenty to set right with Dak Prescott after Cowboys QB's injury

Could they finish 6-9-1 and win it? Probably not, based on the Cowboys' remaining schedule.

A record of 7-8-1 might get it done. But that would take some work for the Eagles, considering their brutal remaining schedule.

The Seahawks fear the veteran outside linebacker has a torn ACL, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. © Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin (51) was injured in Week 2. More tests are needed to confirm, but since field tests for ACLs are extremely accurate, it’s all but certain. It’s a tough blow for a Seahawks team that has looked great with a pair of victories through the first two weeks.

The Quick Slants guys lay it all out there on the Eagles big win against the NY Giants. Securing the NFC east division title for the second time in three

Still, the Eagles at least have a chance. They might already be buried by now if they were in any other division. When asked about that, Eagles coach Doug Pederson responded: "I’m going to pull out my inner Bill Belichick and say I’m focused on Baltimore (the Eagles' next opponent)."

There have only been two teams to win their division with losing records over a full 16-game schedule – the Carolina Panthers at 7-8-1 in 2014 and the Seattle Seahawks at 7-9 in 2010.

Here's a team-by-team look at the NFC East to show how the Eagles can win the division:

Eagles, 1-3-1, 2nd place

To get to 7-8-1, the Eagles would have to go 6-5. But that is much tougher than it looks based on the Eagles' non-divisional slate.

The Eagles would have to go at least 4-1 in their five remaining division games – winning both games against the Giants, a split with Dallas, and winning the one remaining game against Washington in the season finale on Jan. 3.

Does a single soul in the NFC East want to win the division? No one has room to talk, but that doesn’t mean Eagles players won ’t talk trash. Lane Johnson took to Twitter, despite the fact that his team most recently lost to the worst team in the league.

The winner of the NFC East will get into playoffs with the No. 4 seed and host a wild-card game, most likely against the tough runner-up in the NFC West, either the 49ers or the Seahawks. Here ' s a breakdown of how the Eagles or Cowboys can win a second division title in three seasons.

That, believe it or not, is the easy part, even though the Eagles would have to only go 2-4 against the non-division opponents.

Those opponents, however, have a combined record of 23-6 after the New Orleans Saints' win Monday night. The Eagles begin that with the Baltimore Ravens (4-1) on Sunday.

The worst of those six teams are the Saints and the Arizona Cardinals, both 3-2. The other games are at Cleveland (4-1) on Nov. 22, home for Seattle (5-0) on Nov. 30, and at Green Bay (4-0) on Dec. 6.

Good luck.

Cowboys, 2-3, 1st place

Don't expect the Cowboys to go in the tank without Prescott.

They still have a top running back in Ezekiel Elliott, and three top receivers in Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and rookie CeeDee Lamb.

Plus, quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown for more than 31,000 yards in his 10-season career.

The Cowboys would have to go 6-5 in order to finish 8-8 and win the division. They, too, have five division games remaining, with two against Washington, two against the Eagles and one against the Giants.

Report: Jets unhappy with Gregg Williams over comments about offense

  Report: Jets unhappy with Gregg Williams over comments about offense New York Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams raised some eyebrows recently with comments about the team’s play on offense. Those comments were apparently noted within the team as well. © Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports During the week, Williams seemingly blamed the team’s offense for some of his defense’s struggles. You can read those comments here. On Sunday’s CBS broadcast, Andrew Catalon and James Lofton mentioned those comments, and noted that they came up during production meetings this week. It was clear that the team was not happy with them.

The Philadelphia Eagles are poised to win the NFC East over the Cowboys by making a run over the last 7 games of the year. The Eagles have an easier

If the Cowboys go 3-2 in those five games, they would have to go 3-3 against their remaining non-division opponents. The Cowboys have the most favorable of non-divisional games remaining, as the combined record is 15-13-1.

The easiest games are against the Vikings (1-4) and the Bengals (1-3-1). If the Cowboys win those two, then they would need only one more against Arizona (3-2), Pittsburgh (4-0), Baltimore (4-1) and the 49ers (2-3) to get to 8 wins.

The Cowboys should be able to get to 7 wins easily enough, even without Prescott. If they get to 8, they'll win the division.

3. Washington, 1-4, 3rd place

Washington would have to go 7-4 to get to 8-8.

That's hard to picture considering that Washington has been outscored by 53 points this season, the worst point differential in the NFC – and that's even after beating the Eagles by 10 points.

For now, Kyle Allen, if he's healthy, is the quarterback with Alex Smith as the backup. It seems like Washington has already decided Haskins isn't the team's QB of the future.

49ers CB Richard Sherman unlikely to return until Week 12

  49ers CB Richard Sherman unlikely to return until Week 12 Kyle Shanahan provided a bleak update on Richard Sherman‘s availability Wednesday.Shanahan said the Pro Bowl cornerback is not expected to return until after the 49ers’ bye week, per NBC Sports Bay Area’s Jennifer Lee Chan. This would put Sherman’s return date in Week 12 — a Nov. 29 rematch with the Rams. Sherman has been on IR since Week 2 because of a calf injury.

So if Washington is going to get into the sweepstakes for either Clemson's Trevor Lawrence or Ohio State's Justin Fields, it needs to lose, not win.

A 3-2 record among Washington's remaining NFC East games can be achieved by winning two against the Giants, splitting with Dallas and losing to the Eagles.

Vikings safety George Iloka tears ACL in practice

  Vikings safety George Iloka tears ACL in practice Iloka, who sat out the 2019 season, made six tackles for the Vikings this year.The Vikings placed Iloka on injured reserve Thursday. The sides reunited just before the season through a practice squad agreement, and Iloka played in Minnesota’s past four games.

That would leave Washington needing to go 4-2 among its non-division foes. Combined, those teams are 16-11-1.

Three of the six – Detroit (1-3), Cincinnati (1-3-1) and the 49ers (2-3) – are under .500. But the Steelers and Seahawks are unbeaten, and Carolina is 3-2.

Not impossible, but highly unlikely.

4. N.Y. Giants, 0-5, 4th place

Does anyone see 8-3 coming from the Giants, even after coming close to knocking off the Cowboys on Sunday?

The Giants' remaining schedule isn't doing them any favors, either. Let's say they somehow go 4-1 among their NFC East games, which would include winning two against either Washington or the Eagles and splitting with the other, then beating Dallas in the season finale at home.

Even with that, the Giants would still have to go 4-2 against their non-division opponents, and those six teams have a combined record of 20-9-1. That includes games against Seattle (5-0), Cleveland (4-1) and Baltimore (4-1).

Maybe next year.
