Saquon Barkley tied the single game record for receptions by a rookie with 14, according to Elias. He now has 16 catches in two games. He's on pace for receptions. Jerry Jones knows how big the Cowboys' win against the Giants was even if it was Week 2. Jones knew the Cowboys had to avoid an start. Not any more for Dak Prescott but it was on the line tonight. He's played in two regular season game… twitter. Old friends still get to line it up! It was overshadowed some by the Broncos' two-minute drive on offense to win the game Sunday -- a victory over the Oakland Raiders -- but outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett's block of a Raiders' extra point in the second quarter turned out to be the difference.
The guys inside, Derek Wolfe, and I think Philly safety Will Parks outside, they got the eyes of the tackle, the tight end and the guard. I swam, and I was free,'' Barrett said.
At the time the Raiders' touchdown, with the blocked extra point, had given Oakland a lead at halftime. Broncos quarterback Case Keenum said: It's little plays like that. You never know in this league. The Cowboys offense tailed off after a fast start but the defense was able to limit Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. The Cowboys avoided the dreaded start and actually find themselves atop the NFC East standings with a division win. Again the Giants are after they lost to the Dallas Cowboys.
This is the fifth time in six years they've dropped their first two games. Have to wonder where this Giants team is headed with an aging and ineffective quarterback behind a bad offensive line that allowed six sacks. It deems all their weapons mute. Dallas is going to win but this will mark the 9th time in his last 12 games that Dak Prescott hasn't thrown for yards.
I love this lol Washington coach Chris Petersen made it clear Jake Browning's stubbornness when it comes to taking sacks isn't just on his quarterback. He said the coaching staff has to do a better job of designing plays that give him better options to dump the ball off to early when he faces a stiff pass rush.
Browning was more critical of himself and was quick to thank his defense for bailing the team out in two key red zone situations late in the game to preserve the lead in their win against Utah.
Ohio State acting head coach Ryan Day says he'll be forever indebted to defensive coordinator Greg Schiano for helping him during Urban Meyer's suspension. Day called Schiano the classiest person he has encountered in coaching.
Texas' win over USC was the program's th win all time. Ryan Day on completing his term as acting head coach with Ohio State at Urban Meyer returns to full duties Sunday and Day is "fired up about that. Gary Patterson is convinced he has a good football team, but said the Horned Frogs can't help teams the way they did Saturday in the loss to Ohio State.
A telltale game for both teams ends with a much-needed win for Texas and a second consecutive loss for No. The Longhorns come out of this one confident after a loss to Maryland and a narrow win over Tulsa.
