Packers’ second-half showing proves there’s a number of work to do

It was a rough day for the Packers on either side of the ball against the Giants:

  • Defense completely collapsed.
  • Three penalties by Rasul Douglas. Bad coverage by Darnell Savage and Eric Stokes.
  • Two straight Aaron Rodgers passes batted down.
  • No points within the second half.
  • Packers got fortunate in a pair close games. They’ve a loooong solution to go.

Week 5 expert roundtable: Picks, predictions and more

Thursday night’s game between the Colts and Broncos won’t go down within the annals of history as one among the NFL’s most enjoyable offensive showcases.

Indy’s ugly 12-9 victory in Denver was a latest low for big-money addition Russell Wilson, whose fourth-and-1 pass in extra time was broken up ultimately zone by Stephon Gilmore.

On the positive side, Week 5 can only improve from here, and there’s rather more still to return. What are the major storylines value following?

NFL Week 5 expert roundtable: Can the Rams get back on the right track? Ravens or Bengals?

Eagles D/ST could also be smart fantasy option today vs. Cardinals

The Eagles defense ranks third within the league in pass pressure rate (32.2 percent, per Pro Football Reference) despite placing twenty first in blitz rate. This implies this platoon can get tons of pass rush pressure with its front 4 and may very well be an issue for an Arizona offensive line that can be without guard Max Garcia, will almost definitely be without center Rodney Hudson, and has guard Justin Pugh listed as questionable.

This ought to guide the Eagles D/ST to be one among the highest-scoring fantasy platoons in Week 5 and yet this group continues to be available in nearly 30 percent of ESPN leagues. Fantasy managers who’re in search of a high upside D/ST for Week 5 should strongly consider picking Philadelphia up on the waiver wire, as this may very well be a double-digit scoring week for the Eagles.

Can Commanders fix their play-action offense?

There’s no deception concerning the Washington Commanders’ struggles with play-action.

Only two teams have called more of those passes through 4 weeks than Washington. No one has been worse. The Commanders’ 30.5 success rate ranks last by a large margin, in accordance with TruMedia. The second-worst Chicago Bears (37.1 percent) are closer to the eighth-worst Panthers (43.2 percent) than they’re to the Commanders.

Asked methods to raise the play-action efficiency, quarterback Carson Wentz replied, “That’s a really broad query, but at the identical time, it’s an amazing query.”

This statistic alone doesn’t explain the offensive struggles through the current three-game losing streak. Washington (1-3) has scored only seven first-half points since Week 1, ranks twenty seventh in Football Outsiders pass DVOA metric, has allowed a league-high 17 sacks, is last in point differential (minus-34) and has yet to have rookie running back Brian Robinson on the lively roster.

Regardless, finding fixes on this area before the season slips away is paramount.

Saquon Barkey returns, gives Giants first lead of day

Just unbelievable stuff. Saquon Barkley re-enters the sport after getting checked out for a shoulder injury, breaks a 41-yard gain on a catch-and-run after which puts the Giants up 27-20 with a 2-yard TD run out of the wildcat.

After trailing by as many as 14 points in the primary half, Latest York has a seven-point lead on the Packers with lower than five minutes to play.

Brian Daboll has Giants playing thoroughly

ESPN NFL analyst Ryan Clark is amongst those across the league who’ve been impressed by first-year Giants coach Brian Daboll.

The Athletic NFL StaffThe Athletic NFL Staff

Real talk. The Giants are leaps and bounds higher than they were last yr bruh. If the Giants interview process was a sham it is likely to be well worth the lawsuit, since the only one who called the mistaken Brian was Belichick. Surely Daboll is the precise BRIAN for this job.

— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) October 9, 2022

There isn’t any world where anyone but Brian Daboll ought to be coach of the yr.

Some of the impressive of Daniel Jones’ profession, especially when factoring in his supporting forged. No. 3 RB Gary Brightwell punches it in.

Steelers inactives: Secondary thin against Bills

Lions inactives: WR Amon-Ra St. Brown will play vs. Patriots

Lions inactives: WR DJ Chark (ankle), DL John Cominsky (wrist), DE Charles Harris (groin), RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder/ankle), OL Matt Nelson (calf), S JuJu Hughes and CB Amani Oruwariye.

Oruwariye is a little bit of a surprise since he wasn’t on the injury report and had began every game he was healthy up to now this season. Looks as if a shakeup defensively. The Lions can be getting WR Amon-Ra St. Brown and LG Jonah Jackson back, as each are lively for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots.

Falcons inactives: WR Bryan Edwards will play vs. Bucs

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Bryan Edwards is lively for today’s game against Tampa Bay, marking the primary time in three weeks Edwards has avoided the inactive list. Edwards, who was acquired in an offseason trade with the Raiders, has only one catch for two yards this season.

The Falcons inactives are tight end Kyle Pitts (who was ruled out Friday because of a hamstring injury), outside linebacker DeAngelo Malone, inside linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, offensive lineman Chuma Edoga and wide receiver Jared Bernhardt.

Safety Isaiah Oliver, who was designated to return from the injured reserve list this week, made the trip with the team but has not been activated yet, so he won’t play today.

Jets inactives: Duane Brown to make Jets debut at LT

Bucs shorthanded at wide receiver vs. Falcons

Bucs will go without three receivers who presumably would play under normal circumstances — Julio Jones and Breshad Perriman are inactive with injuries, and Cole Beasley retired mid-week.

Every week’s a unique combination at a key position for Bucs.

Bears inactives: RB David Montgomery will play

Bears running back David Montgomery is lively today against the Vikings after missing last week’s game.

Will likely be interesting to see how much of a workload he gets as Khalil Herbert has also been very involved of their run-heavy offense.
