Game Seth Roberts Jersey
Joe Flacco hit Mike Wallace on two deep passes to spark Baltimore’s struggling offense, and the Ravens got a fumble return for a touchdown by Jimmy Smith to beat the short-handed Oakland Raiders 30-17 on Sunday.
Seahawks: DE Michael Bennett went to the locker room late in the first half after injuring his right foot. He returned for the second half, keeping Seattle sound at the position while playing without injured Cliff Avril and Quinton Jefferson.
Rams: Starting safeties Lamarcus Joyner and Maurice Alexander both didn’t play. Joyner had a hamstring injury, but Alexander’s absence apparently wasn’t injury-related.
Elite Joe Looney Jersey As the Broncos exit it their bye week Monday one of the biggest items on their to-do list on offense, beyond getting ready for the Giants, will be to get wide receiver Demaryius Thomas more involved in the red zone. Opposing defenses have consistently tilted their coverages toward Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. And as a result Thomas does not have a touchdown catch yet this season and the Broncos have been content to pound the ball in the running game as defenses have sent the extra players into coverage rather than toward the line of scrimmage. Asked this past week if defenses will eventually take some of the double coverages away if the Broncos keep running the ball with success, coach Vance Joseph said: They will.
Alex Smith is on pace to easily shatter his personal season bests for touchdowns (23 in 2013) and yards (3,502 in 2016). Smith is on course for 35 touchdowns and more than 4,400 yards after throwing for three TDs and more than 300 yards in Sunday night’s win over the Texans. Given the relatively narrow range in which Smith resided for both touchdown passes (15-23) and yards (3,265-3,502) in Smith’s first four seasons with the Chiefs, who saw this coming?
