The Bears defense as a whole had an up-and-down start to the season between Week 1 and Week 2. But one constant was the effective play of their run defense. So far this year, the Bears are surrendering a pedestrian 3.3 YPC average, which ranks fifth-best in the NFL. The scary part is, it could get even better.
This was not expected to be a marquee matchup, but after Arkansas's impressive 3-0 start this is one of the best games of the weekend. Texas A&M was a hot pick to be a College Football Playoff party crasher, but the Razorbacks were picked sixth in the preseason SEC polls.
Speaking of development … this is regression for BB & The O from last year -- 3TechFanz 09/23/2021 06:41AM. But, we have good WRs and plenty of them, just ask Corn, Fu and receivers -- FLKEYSHOKIE 09/23/2021 6:49PM. Agree. And as others have postulated - Jafar Williams isn’t developing --...
Notre Dame has picked up a commitment from Miami (Fla.) Gulliver Prep running back Sedrick Irvin Jr. The talented 2023 running back picked Notre Dame over Stanford, Oregon and Michigan State. The 5-10, 185-pound running back is the fifth member of the 2023 recruiting class to commit to Notre Dame.

Why Bears defense could be even better against the Browns originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago. The Bears defense as a whole had an up-and-down start to the season between Week 1 and Week 2. But one constant was the effective play of their run defense. So far this year, the Bears are surrendering a pedestrian 3.3 YPC average, which ranks fifth-best in the NFL.

Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... His next assignment is to fluster former second-second pick Jalen Hurts, a QB that isn’t as potentially lethal in the air as Herbert, but offers a much bigger challenge on the ground. Hurts has been known to make things happen with his legs — either extending plays for downfield heaves or carving off chunks himself in the rushing game — presenting a different type of challenge for Parsons on Monday night. For his part, the Cowboys defensive rookie dynamo sees Hurts as next QB on his list to bury. “I would say every quarterback that’s on the season is on the hit list,” Parsons told media on Wednesday. “I want all of them. Herbert was just the guy I had that week. But Hurts, he’s on the hit list now too. You got to look at it like you’re trying to be the Terminator out there.”
There are many ways to look at Saturday’s contest between No. 18 Wisconsin and No. 12 Notre Dame. Notre Dame starting quarterback Jack Coan was once the Badger signal-caller, Wisconsin has struggled recently in games against ranked opponents, the Badger defense has continued its absolute dominance and Notre Dame sits at 3-0 despite a few close calls against poor opponents.
Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans Matchup Preview (9/26/21): Betting Odds, Depth Charts, Live Stream (Watch Online)
Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans Matchup Preview (9/26/21) The Colts and Titans are two playoff hopefuls who have had rough starts to the season but remain very much alive thanks to a poor AFC South division. Indianapolis impressed me last week in keeping things close against a top contender in the Rams, but now Carson Wentz has two sprained ankles and the Colts sit at 0-2 with a handful of key players injured. Tennessee, meanwhile, delivered an inspiring second-half comeback on the road in Seattle as the Titans outscored the Seahawks 24-6 over the second half and overtime. The Titans will be hoping to parlay that momentum back into a home win over their divisional foe while the Colts will be hoping to bounce back from their poor start to the season.
It did not take long at all for the running back position to look like a complete disaster. It didn't even take that many injuries. Just some very poor performance from some very highly ranked running backs. I came into the Week 3 rankings process thinking that we can't start...
Each week Peegs.com checks in on the all the action in the NFL and how former Hoosier players are doing around the league. This week we take a look at how eight former Indiana players active in the NFL performed in week 2 of the 2021 season, and how each of their respective teams did.
When Tony Pollard was drafted in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the belief was that he could provide a change of pace counterpunch to star Ezekiel Elliott out of the backfield. The results, however, were a mixed bag throughout his first two seasons. In 33 career games,...
It was an unfortunate week for my fantasy teams, as I faced Derrick Henry in three of my four leagues. I have personally been very down on Henry for fantasy football, so I guess I deserved to get destroyed by him this week. My main knock against the Titans’ star...
Connecticut is the worst FBS team I’ve seen in years. Connecticut is 0-4 this season with a -135-point differential, winning exactly three games since 2018. Their head coach has already stepped down, and I’m not sure if they’ll win another game this season. Meanwhile, Wyoming is 2-0 and looking like...

The Atlanta Falcons head to MetLife Stadium to face the New York Giants on Sunday in a battle of the defeated. Both teams are 0-2 and in desperate need of a victory. Falcons’ first-year head coach Arthur Smith has struggled to find an offensive groove without a bruising Derrick Henry type of running back.
Time: Saturday, Sept 25th, 10AM (MT) Commentators: Rich “Viennese” Waltz, Aaron “Sandwiches” Taylor, and Sherree “Brrrr” Burress. Boise State has won an impressive 21-straight conference openers dating back to 1999 and since they started the season with a 1-2 record, I think extending that streak would probably go a long way in restoring some of the frayed nerves and damaged drywall in Bronco Nation.
The Hoosiers travel down to Western Kentucky to take on the new-and-improved Hilltoppers. WKU’s offense has covered in two straight games, which includes dropping 35 on Army. Meanwhile, The Hoosiers start their season 1-2 straight up (SU) and against the spread (ATS), including a crushing 34-6 defeat to Iowa in the season debut.
