Thursday night:

    Week 4 — and, by proxy, Week 4 daily fantasy football contests — are not set to get off a roaring start. Jets vs. Broncos shapes up as an even uglier Thursday Night Football game on paper than last week’s Dolphins-Jaguars matchup. There’s also all sorts of quarterback uncertainty, from whether Sam Darnold is any good to who Denver will use at QB during the game. That creates some unusual difficulties in creating a DraftKings Showdown DFS lineup. For the first and probably only time this season, we’ve faded both quarterbacks We’ve gone for an even more unique lineup by utilizing the Denver D/ST at captain after the Jets allowed the Colts to score two defensive touchdowns last week. There’s...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City If you wanted to properly quantify just how bad the New York Jets are right now, consider this: Their opponent on Thursday night — the Denver Broncos — are ransacked by injuries and have not named a starting quarterback, yet they are favored by Vegas sportsbooks in what is expected to be a snoozer of a primetime matchup.  As of Tuesday morning, the Broncos had not announced if they would go with Jeff Driskel or Brett Rypien as their starter under center and could possibly split snaps. This after regular starter Drew Lock was injured during Week 2 and the signing of...

Ratings are in for Week 3 of the NFL season, and as before, they’re a mixed bag of data from which one can draw a range of interpretations.

    “Thursday Night Football” got some atrocious ratings when the Dolphins beat the Jaguars. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the game averaged 5.43 million viewers on the NFL Network, which is the lowest number of viewers in four years for “TNF.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Jacksonville Jaguars (@jaguars) on Sep 24, 2020 at 8:27pm PDT Hitting a four-year low is really bad news for the NFL. In fact, it’s about as bad as it could possibly get. Right now, people aren’t even allowed at most games, which means they have no choice but to watch at home or at bars.   View...
    Protesters in Louisville, Kentucky, marched and rallied peacefully for several hours as of 11:00 p.m. EST on Friday, in what was the third evening of demonstrations held in protest of a grand jury's decision Wednesday not to charge three police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed in a police raid in March. What are the details? Early in the evening, the mood appeared tense as some protesters were seen yelling and antagonizing police officers who were on the scene. Much of the footage available was captured by "independent guy on the scene" Brendan Gutenschwager, who reported that media and cameras were welcomed by demonstrators on Friday. One apparent organizer was seen on...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A third night of protests is planned for Friday in downtown Sacramento over the grand jury decision not to charge the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor earlier this year. Friday night’s events are expected to begin at around 8 p.m. in downtown. An exact location has not yet been confirmed. Thursday night’s protest was a bit more eventful than the first night of protests on Wednesday, which remained mostly peaceful. Last night, protesters were met with law enforcement in full riot gear and less-than-lethal weapons. Protesters marched to different government buildings, including the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office where crowds were face-to-face with law enforcement. The crowd eventually arrived at DOCO, where some stopped...
    Despite a 9 p.m. curfew, protests continued in Louisville Friday night over a Kentucky grand jury’s decision not to indict police officers in the killing of Breonna Taylor. Unrest was expected to continue through the weekend despite the curfew, announced by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer Thursday. Two dozen protesters were arrested Thursday night, a day after grand jury decision in the death of the 26-year-old EMT, who was shot in her home during a botched raid, the Courier-Journal reported. Among the arrested was State Rep. Attica Scott, who authored the state legislation that would ban no-knock warrants. Scott was hit with a felony charge of first-degree rioting and two misdemeanors for failure to disperse and unlawful assembly. “Our call to...
    President Donald Trump will fly back to Washington, D.C. to visit his hotel for just 85 minutes for a campaign fundraiser on a day that takes him to three swing states.  The president woke up in Florida at his Trump National Doral Miami and hosted a 'Latinos for Trump' roundtable before heading to Georgia, back to D.C., and then onto Virginia for a Friday night rally.   'So I'm thrilled to be back in Doral, I never knew if I was gonna even see it again, this is nice,' he told a crowd at his a.m. campaign event.  President Donald Trump will hit three swing states on Friday: Florida, Georgia and Virginia - and stop back in Washington, D.C. for a...
    Protests in Louisville were less violent Thursday night, calming down significantly from the previous night, during which two Louisville Metropolitan Police Department officers were shot, the Courier Journal reported. Thursday was the second night since the grand jury decision not to charge any officers for killing Breonna Taylor during a raid on her home in March. One former officer, Brett Hankison, was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, related to his allegedly shooting recklessly into surrounding apartments — not to the fact that Taylor was shot and killed. The Courier Journal reported that 24 people were arrested overnight Thursday, down from 127 the night before. Some of the arrests were for unlawful assembly and failure to disperse, and...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — We’re in month seven of full-blown pandemic in the United States, which is something that we all frankly never expected to say or read or even really fathom. Something we also never imagined was that the NFL would somehow be playing football all across the country in the midst of this pandemic, and yet, there it is, filling up our flat screens every Thursday, Sunday and Monday. The reason the NFL aggressively pursued a season in 2020 was obvious: Money. The second most important reason was … checks notes … yup, that was money, too. But if you move your way down the list of the NFL’s reasons to charge full bore into a 2020...

One worker said their store was worse than a bad Christmas. What happened to the Jaguars passing game on Thursday night? Heres what Gardner Minshew said Through the first two weeks of the 2020 season, there were few quarterbacks more efficient and effective than Gardner Minshew of the Jaguars — especially among second-year quarterbacks. Minshew was one of four 2019 draftees to start both games for his 2020 team, and he had a far better completion percentage (75.4%), yards per attempt (7.9), and passer rating (115.7) than Kyler Murray, Daniel Jones, and Dwayne...

    Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew played well in a Thursday night loss to the Dolphins. Despite losing 31-13, the young NFL sensation still managed to launch the ball for 275 yards. He did throw an interception, but managed to complete more than 71% of his passes.

    WASHINGTON - Protests erupted for a second night Thursday in Louisville, Kentucky, in the aftermath of a grand jury’s decision not to bring homicide charges against any of the three white police officers who carried out a drug raid that led to the shooting death last March of Breonna Taylor, a Black woman who was an emergency medical worker. Demonstrators took to Louisville’s downtown streets Thursday night to express their anger and frustration with the grand jury’s decision. Some protesters smashed windows. Police said at least 24 people were arrested. More than 100 protesters took refuge in the First Unitarian Church after the start of a night-time curfew. Earlier Thursday, there were some tense moments when a group of...
    Several Google services, including Gmail, Hangouts and YouTube, briefly went down for many users across the US on Thursday night. The outage-tracking website DownDetector received an influx of reports of interruptions to those services beginning shortly before 9 p.m. and peaking 15 minutes later. A majority of those affected were located in major cities along the eastern coast of the US, according to the site.

    No one should have expected a Dolphins-Jaguars game on a short turnaround to be any different than it was Thursday night. In a duel of bad, irrelevant Florida teams, Jacksonville made a convincing claim for “worst squad in the state” with its 31-13 loss. That dubious honor over the past couple of decades has been hotly contested between the Jaguars, Dolphins and Buccaneers. This year, Florida looks like it will carry at least two bottom-dwelling sides. Miami quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick tore through the Jaguars on Thursday night, throwing for 160 yards and two touchdowns on 18-of-20 passing. His success, though, might have been as much about his opponent’s shortcomings than his own abilities. That’s what often happens in a matchup of underwhelming teams....
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — One man was killed and three men were injured in shootings Thursday night, three in Baltimore City and one in Baltimore County. The first shooting in the city happened around 7:23 p.m. in east Baltimore. City police said officers responded to the 1400 block of East North Avenue to find a 38-year-old man with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to this left thigh. Police learned he was shot five blocks away in the 1900 block of East North Avenue. The man was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Around 35 minutes later, Baltimore County police officers responded to a home in the 4200 block of Nadine Drive near the city/county line for a report of a man...
    Cam Robinson’s Thursday Night Football ejection was softer than soft. Thursday Night Football between the Miami Dolphins and the Jacksonville Jaguars wasn’t must-watch TV, so perhaps the officials decided to spice it up with an ejection. Robinson was a second-round selection by the Jaguars in 2017 out of Alabama. He has started 33 games for the team despite missing most of the 2018 season with an ACL tear.

    Night Owls, a themed open thread, appears at Daily Kos seven days a week At The Guardian, Tom Burgis writes—What $2 trillion in possible corrupt activity reveals about Kleptopia: [...] This week we’ve caught a fresh glimpse of Kleptopia. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists published the FinCEN files, details of more than 2,000 leaked suspicious activity reports that banks had filed to the US Treasury. They show that, even when bankers have doubts about the provenance of their clients’ money, the financial secrecy system goes on serving its primary purpose. That purpose is not simply to accentuate the concentration of wealth, to abet corruption, or to shift the proceeds of crime, important though all those functions are. No, it...
    Jamal Murray brought some Michael Jordan flavor to the Nuggets series against the Lakers. The worst kind of NBA debates usually involve LeBron James and Michael Jordan. So let’s skip the whole LeBron-MJ comparison and just appreciate the Jordan impression Jamal Murray pulled off Thursday night. If Denver can pull off a Game 4 win, they’ll have successfully tied the series, 2-2. If the Lakers prevail, they will move one game away from the NBA Finals. There’s a lot on the line on Thursday night. Jamal Murray sure is playing like it. Next: Anthony Davis Dominates Even With One Eye

    (CNN)The Supreme Court has denied a request to stop the federal execution of Christopher Vialva, scheduled for Thursday night in Terre Haute, Indiana. The unsigned order was the Court's second refusal to stop a federal execution this week. The Court denied the stay request of William LeCroy on Tuesday in an order that marked the first since Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.Vialva was convicted 20 years ago for the 1999 murders of two youth ministers in Fort Hood, Texas. At the time of the crime, Vialva was 19 years old, and critics note this will be the first time in nearly 70 years that the United States will execute a man for a crime he committed as a teenager.

    The Miami Dolphins visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars isn’t the most attractive matchup for “Thursday Night Football,” but with FitzMagic vs. Minshew Magic, it’s again Must-See TV (we’ll spare you the “Seinfeld” references this week). The line has been wavering between the Jaguars -2.5 and -3 all week with most books charging extra vig (-120 instead of the standard -110) to get the side you want. Both of these teams have continued to battle hard despite low expectations from experts and NFL fans. Last year, the Dolphins were accused of “Tanking for Tua Tagovailoa” early in the season and were competitive enough with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to win five games, including an upset of the New England Patriots in Week 17...
    After a solid 2019, DJ Chark was drafted by many fantasy football owners as a WR2. Chark has shown game-breaking ability and good chemistry with Gardner Minshew, so there is hope that he can be a top-25 receiver this year. However, Chark has hit a little bit of a bump in the road ahead of the Jaguars’ Week 3 Thursday Night Football matchup with the Dolphins. Chark is being listed as “questionable” as he deals with a chest injury. Fantasy owners and NFL DFS players are going to want to check up on Chark frequently ahead of the Jaguars-Dolphins game to get the latest news on his active/inactive status before kickoff. We’ll have updates below about Chark right up until...

    The Jaguars will be without wide receiver DJ Chark on Thursday. The Jacksonville Jaguars were projected to be a terrible team by many analysts this season. The team responded by getting off to a 1-1 start and nearly took down the Tennessee Titans in Week 2. The Jaguars have a quick turnaround with a winnable game Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins. The only problem is they will be without top receiver DJ Chark, who was downgraded to “out” Thursday afternoon. #Jaguars WR DJ Chark (chest/back) was listed as questionable but he’s now been downgraded to out. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 24, 2020 With Chark out vs. the Miami Dolphins, rookie receiver Laviska Shenault has a big opportunity to...
    Hello, we mustache you a question. The NFL has been home to many iconic facial hair configurtions, but have you ever seen a more glorious lip-warmer in the NFL than Gardner Minshew’s? The Uncle Rico of the National Football League unleashed his facial hair on the world last season, coupling his now-iconic horseshoe mustache with surprising play for the Jags, as a lone bright spot in an otherwise lost season.  But every great hero has a great villain, and the NFL’s incumbent bushy-faced braggart, Ryan Fitzpatrick, takes issue with Minshew’s preferred choice of facial hair. The two QBs exchanged barba barbs earlier in the week, making the battle of the facial hair the No. 1 storyline heading into Thursday night’s Dolphins vs. Jaguars...
    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars receiver DJ Chark won’t play Thursday night against Miami. The team downgraded Chark from questionable to out a little more than six hours before kickoff. Chark injured his chest and back making a 45-yard catch in the first quarter of last Sunday’s loss at Tennessee. The Jaguars (1-1) chose not to risk Chark on a short week, but expect him to be good to go for next week’s game at Cincinnati. Chark has seven receptions for a team-leading 109 yards and a touchdown. He is averaging a team-best 15.6 yards a catch. Without him, Jacksonville will rely on Chris Conley, Keelan Cole and rookie Laviska Shenault against the Dolphins, who are without their No....

    Dolphins fans may want to see Tua Tagovailoa soon if the team loses Thursday night. The Miami Dolphins executed their plan to perfection in 2019. The team lost enough to end up with the No. 5 overall pick and used it on quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. “Tanking for Tua” was a success. The Dolphins are in action Thursday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tagovailoa will once again be on the sidelines as Ryan Fitzpatrick starts at quarterback. The team has started 0-2 and have an elite prospect just waiting on the sidelines. Does another loss for Miami mean it is time for Tua?When do the Dolphins start Tua Tagovailoa?An 0-3 start would put the Dolphins back on a rebuilding path. But...
    The Dolphins and Jaguars have provided many of fantasy football’s early surprises in the 2020 NFL season. Both teams have showed some good production in the receiving corps, and two unexpected young backs have become very valuable with their respective volume. The combination of surprise offensive players and two mediocre defenses is undoubtedly creating plenty of early-week start ’em, sit ’em drama for fantasy owners, and SN’s Vinnie Iyer is here to help with the first bit of lineup advice for Week 3. To the casual fan, Miami at Jacksonville doesn’t sound like the most inspiring kickoff to Week 3 of fantasy football (8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network), but fantasy owners know there could be some fun boom-or-bust performances. Let’s get to it.

    A pair of social media’s favorite quarterbacks meet in the third “Thursday Night Football” game of the season, as Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins head to Jacksonville to face Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars at TIAA Bank Field.  Two weeks ago many had the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft signed, sealed and delivered to Jacksonville. Instead, the Jaguars (1-1) have gone out and shocked Indianapolis in Week 1 and lost a squeaker in Week 2 to Tennessee. Minshew has thrown for six touchdowns and ranks third in the league in completion percentage above expectation. Even the run defense has held its own, limiting Derrick Henry to just 84 yards on 25 carries and holding the Colts...
    When the Dolphins travel to play the Jaguars in Jacksonville on ‘Thursday Night Football’ to open Week 3 of the 2020 NFL season (8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network), it will be an all-Florida affair. The Dolphins (0-2) are coming off two division losses against the Patriots and Bills, while the Jaguars (1-1) have split their AFC South games against the Colts and Titans. The Jaguars’ youth movement is in full force, led by QB Gardner Minshew, undrafted rookie running back James Robinson and young first-round pass rusher Josh Allen. The Dolphins are headed in that direction, but are still keeping rookie first-round QB Tua Tagovailoa on the bench in favor of veteran bridge Ryan Fitzpatrick. Here’s how Sporting News sees...
    The start time for Thursday night’s game between the Dolphins and Jaguars to kick off Week 3 is the same kickoff time set for all Thursday night games this year. With the default start time in place, Thursday night’s game in Jacksonville will kick off under the lights at TIAA Bank Field at 8:20 p.m. ET and broadcast nationally on NFL Network. This is a game between a pair of teams few expect to contend in 2020, but in Week 3, both are still holding on to whatever hopes they had for the year.

    Of the teams playing on “Thursday Night Football” tonight, neither is expected to be a contender in the AFC or even in its own division. But the fact that it’s only Week 3 means both the Dolphins and the Jaguars are, at least internally, preserving hopes of reaching their goals in 2020 despite 0-2 and 1-1 starts, respectively. This is an all-Florida matchup between the team that has most been connected to the concept of tanking over the last couple years and the team many believe are doing the same beginning this season. Yet Jacksonville won its first game and nearly beat Tennessee last week, reaffirming that Jaguars players and coaches aim to win every game regardless of the organization’s long-term...
    Thursday Night Football’s Week 3 matchup might not be a clash of world-beaters, but the game should be an exciting one. The Dolphins and Jaguars are facing off in a battle of rebuilding teams that have some dynamic talents (and shaky defenses). For Miami, it’s DeVante Parker, Mike Gesicki, and a strong secondary. For Jacksonville, Gardner Minshew’s strong performance has keyed a 1-1 record despite the Jaguars trading away a lot of talent during the offseason. All of this offensive firepower makes it easy to build a good-looking lineup for our single-game FanDuel tournament that will kick off the Week 3 NFL DFS slate. The strategy in crafting this lineup was simple: Neither defense is particularly good, so this has the chance to be an...

    The idea has merit: Take teams you don’t expect to be in the playoff chase and stick them in prime time early in the schedule. That’s what the NFL has done by placing Cincinnati at Cleveland last week, and this Thursday night, it’s Jacksonville hosting Miami. Denver and the Jets get the honor next week before some of the big boys take the stage. That doesn’t mean Dolphins-Jaguars will be a total dud. Miami has been somewhat competitive in division losses to New England and Buffalo. Jacksonville, led by the dynamic play of quarterback Gardner Minshew, has been a whole lot more than that, stunning Indianapolis and falling at Tennessee late in the game. Jacksonville, ranked 19th in the AP...

    Jaguars vs. Dolphins on Week 3 Thursday Night Football promises to present us with weirdness never yet seen on an NFL field, but we’re going to lean into that weirdness with our DraftKings Showdown lineup. If there was ever a week to only play tournaments, it’s this one, because no one can really predict what’s going to happen with this game. It’s not a bad idea to play a lower portion of your bankroll than normal, but any time you can captain Laviska Shenault Jr. in a single-game DFS contest, you have to do it. This lineup’s potential downside is the absence of DJ Chark, DeVante Parker, and Mike Gesicki. Hopefully we cover for some of their production by using...
    JERUSALEM – From Thursday night to early Friday, the Israeli army recorded 12 rocket fire from Gaza, to which it responded with three retaliatory shells on Hamas targets, in what represents the most violent night in the border in more than six months. The upturn in tension that has taken place for almost three weeks between the Palestinian militias in the Gaza Strip and the Israeli Army last night reached its highest point so far. The Palestinians, who, although they had launched hundreds of incendiary and explosive balloons, had only fired four rockets towards Israel since the beginning of the month, always responded by Israeli retaliatory bombings in the enclave, which also took place last...

Drawing a lot of Browns’ top corner Denzel Ward was a factor in that lack of production, but Green was targeted 13 times in the game (21.3 percent target share; 61 attempts for rookie quarterback Joe Burrow). So Burrow is looking Green’s way often, 22 times through two games (22.7 percent target share), but he has just eight catches for 80 yards total. Green’s first...
    (CNN)Joe Biden's campaign is no doubt feeling pretty good after the former vice president's Thursday night performance in the CNN drive-in town hall in Scranton, Pennsylvania. With 47 days until election day, Biden took full advantage of the national spotlight to address the issues, call for unity and attack his opponent, President Donald Trump. But there were holes in his performance. Biden may have been able to get away with them at the town hall, but if he makes similar mistakes in the three upcoming presidential debates, he won't be so lucky.Alice Stewart So, with debate season just around the corner, what strengths and weaknesses did Biden display Thursday night?

    So much about baseball has changed since March 12, when the first spring training was shut down due to the coronavirus. Empty ballparks. Seven-inning doubleheaders. Designated hitters in the AL and NL. Alternate sites replaced minor league games. Teams forced to quarantine after players tested positive for COVID-19. Bubbles in front of postseason bubbles. The World Series will be played at a neutral site in Texas. Yet through all the changes caused by the pandemic, one issue remains intact: Aaron Judge’s feelings about who the best team in baseball is as the postseason approaches. “I think they are the same as when the season started,’’ Judge said of the Yankees’ expectations, before they swept three games from the Blue Jays...

    ORLAND PARK, Ill. (CBS) — Parents and students continue to put pressure on Gov. JB Pritzker to reopen schools and school sports. Rallies were held Thursday in the northwest and southwest suburbs, including Orland Park. As CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey reported, parents said the status quo – rooted in precautions for COVID-19, is doing more harm than good. Sources said the discussions were continuing Thursday night, and that the Governor’s office is at least reviewing these requests to return fall sports in Illinois. Meanwhile, there was another night of rallies, and at least right now no end in sight. “If you’re playing it correctly, there is no contact whatsoever,” said St. Lawrence High School freshman volleyball player Ella...

    The Los Angeles Lakers star took notice of how special an NFL quarterback Joe Burrow can become. When you’re a first-overall pick in any professional sport, all eyes are going to be on you. Perhaps no NFL Draft prospect entered with more hype than Joe Burrow, especially following his historic season as the starting quarterback for the LSU Tigers. Burrow’s NFL debut with the Cincinnati Bengals was hindered by an ill-timed cramp from kicker Randy Bullock. But, Burrow had the chance to open some eyes in primetime on Thursday against the Cleveland Browns. And did he ever. After throwing his first-career touchdown pass to tight end CJ Uzomah in the second quarter, Burrow received hefty praise from Los Angeles Lakers...

    The Cleveland Browns will be donning a great uniform combo for their home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 2020 NFL season didn’t get off to the greatest starts for the Cleveland Browns. With many predicting that head coach Kevin Stefanski can turn the around and bring them to the playoffs, they were smacked around by the powerhouse of the AFC North: the Baltimore Ravens. Now, the Browns open up First Energy Stadium on Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals. We’ve seen Cleveland wear their home uniforms last week in Baltimore, but for Week 2, they’re changing things up. Executive vice president of the Browns, J.W. Johnson, revealed that the team will be wearing their home jerseys with orange pants...
    The Week 2 Thursday Night Football matchup should be an interesting one at the very least. The Browns and Bengals are squaring off in a battle of former No. 1 overall picks and Heisman Trophy winners.

Both players have fantasy potential, but only one makes the cut for our single-game FanDuel lineup to kick off the Week 2 NFL DFS slate. It’s still early in the season, so it is hard to project exactly who has the advantage in Browns vs. Bengals, but we’re buying into some of the notable weaknesses of each team...
    The Browns and Bengals are squaring off in a must-win game for both teams Thursday night. The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals are both hoping for better finishes in 2020. That is why Week 1 was tough on both teams. The Browns got demolished by the Baltimore Ravens while the Bengals fell to the Los Angeles Chargers thanks to a late miss by kicker Randy Bullock. He is now out and the Bengals will have Austin Seibert kicking. He happened to be Cleveland’s kicker in Week 1 and this is only one of the many storylines to follow heading into the Thursday night matchup.

These teams are trying to avoid getting locked in the AFC North vault and the Browns come in as 6-point home favorites. The advance line on this game was Browns -8 over the summer but was lowered below a touchdown after the Ravens ran over the Browns 38-6 on Sunday while Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the Bengals lost...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the 2020 presidential campaign (all times local): 3:35 p.m. Joe Biden says his presidential campaign will focus on mobilizing people to vote early, especially in places where such ballots are counted quickly, to keep President Donald Trump from declaring victory before all the results are in. Speaking on a virtual fundraiser with Colorado leaders on Thursday, Biden noted that more Trump supporters are likely to vote in person while his own supporters might cast absentee ballots because of fears about the coronavirus. Referring to Trump, Biden said, “His hope is that, by the time the polls close, he’d have more votes than I would have had, even though only a relatively small percentage of...
    Baker Mayfield and the Browns cannot afford a loss Thursday night. The Cleveland Browns had a Week 1 to forget. The same goes for Baker Mayfield. The team got destroyed by a final score of 38-6 against the Baltimore Ravens and Mayfield managed to throw for just 189 yards in the loss. The game was a disaster and the Browns had to move on quickly as the team is in action Thursday night against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. The team managed to turn a Week 1 embarrassment into a 1-1 record last season. Now they must do the same in 2020 to avoid unnecessary distraction and storylines from popping up when it is still September.Baker Mayfield under a...
    Myles Garrett will never live down his fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on November 14, 2019, and more specifically, his decision to swing a helmet at Rudolph in a moment of rage. His NFL legacy is in some ways already sealed regardless of how many career sacks he accumulates. He’s the player who used an opponent’s helmet as a weapon in primetime football action. When the Browns, who drafted Garrett No. 1 overall in 2017, face the Bengals on Thursday, his infamous attack will almost certainly be recounted by TV broadcasters. After all, the scrap with Pittsburgh took place on “Thursday Night Football” last season. Garrett served a lengthy suspension following the Browns-Steelers brawl. He’s back this year, though, and expected to be entering...

    When the Bengals and Browns resume their in-state AFC North rivalry on ‘Thursday Night Football’ (8:20 p.m. ET, NFL Network), the goal for each team will be avoiding falling into a bigger hole. Both Cincinnati (0-1) and Cleveland (0-1) suffered frustrating losses in Week 1. The Bengals led the Chargers throughout before giving up the lead late and were unable to convert the game-winning field-goal opportunity. The Browns were blasted by the Ravens on the road from the get-go. There are expectations that both teams should be much improved from 2019, but 2020 hasn’t started off well.

    Of the teams playing on “Thursday Night Football” tonight, both enter Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season winless, but one might be a little more desperate than the other. The Browns entered the season with reasonable expectations to compete in the AFC North and push for a playoff berth. But their clunker against the Ravens to open the season has them in danger of falling into the dreaded 0-2 hole. Their opponent Thursday night, the Bengals, aren’t playing with the same amount of pressure despite having the same record.

Maybe the location – FirstEnergy Stadium – will give us a hint on the outcome of Thursday night’s game.  Neither team’s first games of 2020 provided insights on how good Cincinnati or Cleveland will be this season.  The two teams combined for 19 points and surrendered 46...
    Getty Odell Beckham Jr. #13 of the Cleveland Browns. The days of Odell Beckham Jr. being a shoo-in starter for your fantasy football lineups are no more. And his placement amongst the NFL’s upper-echelon of wide receivers appears to be dwindling in front of our eyes. After being held under 30 receiving yards just twice over his 59-game career with the New York Giants, last Sunday marked Beckham’s fourth such occurrence over his mere 17-game career with the Cleveland Browns, per Pro Football Talks’ Michael David Smith. Will a Week 2 matchup against the division foe Cincinnati Bengals help the three-time Pro Bowler turn things around? Or will OBJ simply burn a hole in your fantasy lineups if...

    Jarvis Landry has been remarkably consistent over the past several years. He doesn’t catch a lot of TDs, but the Browns receiver has always been a reliable PPR threat. He has recorded at least 81 catches in each of his six seasons, and he looked good last week, grabbing five passes for 61 yards. However, there is some question about whether he’ll play ahead of a Thursday Night Football clash with the Bengals. Landry is dealing with a troublesome hip injury and is officially questionable for the game. It’s difficult to know whether he will be active or not, so fantasy football owners and DFS players will have to check up on his active/inactive status before making any start ’em,...
    With a glance at their injury report, a drawback of short week football is on full display for the Cleveland Browns. In one sense, the Cleveland Browns have a quick opportunity to rebound form a 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. But playing on a short week Thursday night against the Cincinnati Bengals also means a short recovery time for anyone who is injured. The Browns have put out an injury report for Thursday night. Four players on the defensive side of the ball–cornerback Kevin Johnson (liver), cornerback Greedy Williams (shoulder), linebacker Mack Wilson (knee) and linebacker Jacob Phillips (knee) have been declared out.

    Everybody watching Thursday night’s NFL season-opener could see the Texans were completely outmatched by the defending-champion Chiefs. Everybody but Kansas City coach Andy Reid, that is. NFL coaches in 2020 are required to wear face coverings while on the sidelines as part of the league’s COVID-19 protocols. Reid in Week 1 went with a clear plastic shield that and covers his entire face rather than a mask that covers his mouth and nose, likely for communication purposes.

    Deshaun Watson struggled in the passing game Thursday night. The Houston Texans got some late scores to make Thursday’s opener against the Kansas City Chiefs look respectable. The final score was 34-20 in a game that saw the Texans offense struggle to find any flow until it was too late. One of the more shocking moves of the offseason came when Bill O’Brien traded star receiver DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for running back David Johnson and draft capital. The back did score a touchdown early Thursday night, but finished with 77 yards on only 11 carries. The offense was a mess and it is clear the team will have a tough time replacing Hopkins.Deshaun Watson struggled...

    Rookie Brady Singer had a no-hit bid go deep into the game Thursday night. The Cleveland Indians are having a tough time against the last-place Kansas City Royals this week. The Indians did take the first game, but the Royals took the next two and picked up a dominant 11-1 win Thursday night. But the real story of the game was rookie pitcher Brady Singer. The former 2018 first-round pick by the Royals carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning. He got two outs in the inning and appeared to be cruising against the bottom of the lineup. Then new Indians catcher Austin Hedges hit a single and the bid was over just like that. Austin Hedges breaks up Brady...
