World News – United States – What We Learned From Week 5 Of The NFL Season

Dak Prescott's season appears to be over, Alex Smith returned after nearly two years of absence, the Ravens demolished Joe Burrow and the Bengals, and the Raiders shocked the Chiefs

Dak Prescott’s season seems over, Alex Smith has returned after almost two years of absence, the Ravens have demolished Joe Burrow and the Bengals, and the Raiders have shocked the Chiefs

Sunday got off to a rough start when the NFL announced it would delay this week’s game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots due to lingering issues with the coronavirus The decision led to a cascade of changes in the upcoming schedule, and will certainly be a frequent topic of conversation as teams adjust on the fly

When it comes to the games, there were some surprising results, some exciting action and a comeback from Alex Smith that hardly anyone predicted.But there was also a devastating injury in Arlington, TX, who seems to have ended Dak Prescott’s season

Dak Prescott’s record-breaking season is almost assuredly over Prescott had fought for a 9-yard gain in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Giants when the Cowboys quarterback had his legs tangled under him while he was tackled His right foot seemed to be spinning and the veteran sat on the field squeezing his calf as the medics ran to help him He was in tears when he was whisked off the field in the back of a cart and was replaced by Andy Dalton, who led the team to a narrow 37-34 victory

Prescott, who has thrown at least 450 yards in each of his previous three games – an NFL first – set a record for most passing yards in the first four games of the season, with 1,690 L ‘productivity explosion followed an offseason in which he failed to agree with Dallas on a long-term contract extension

No official announcement has been made as to the severity of the injury, but the NFL Network reported that it was a compound fracture near the ankle and that Prescott would require immediate surgery In addition to a difficult recovery, the ramifications of the injury will likely affect Prescott’s contract negotiations with Dallas this offseason.

There is no giving up at Alex Smith Devastating knee injury in November 2018 prompted medics to consider amputating veteran quarterback’s right leg His career has been declared over by many pundits , his team used their first-round pick this offseason on a new quarterback, and the world has moved on In other words, everyone’s gone except for Smith, 36. He had 17 surgeries, received medical clearance shortly before the start of the season, and entered the Washington football team game on Sunday afterward. injury to Kyle Allen, throwing an official pass for the first time in 693 days

Smith was well short of the longest pass gap, which the Elias Sports Bureau says belongs to Tony Adams, a career replacement who spent 3,276 days between attempts (Oct 15, 1978, to Oct 4, 1987) But when you factor in how unlikely Smith’s return was, his day so fleeting in a 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams was just phenomenal.

Kansas City needs to work on focus The Chiefs opened their Super Bowl defense with four straight wins, including a dominating effort that ended Baltimore’s 14-game winning streak in the regular season But on either side of that victory over the Ravens, the Chiefs had to survive a scare of overtime against the Chargers in Week 2 and then struggled for much of the game against the Patriots without Cam Newton in Week 4. This tendency to downplay their competition largely caught up with the Chiefs, as the Las Vegas Raiders, who arrived as 13-point losers, threw everything they had at the Chiefs, taking a lead, and then preventing Patrick Mahomes from returning for a shocking 40-32 win in Kansas City

It was just the 11th time the Chiefs have allowed 40 or more points at Arrowhead Stadium, and Derek Carr was the Raiders’ first quarterback to reach the top 300 yards at Kansas City since Rich Gannon in 2002.

The Jaguars are good for your self-esteem Houston was in disarray, starting the season 0-4, which resulted in the dismissal of coach Bill O’Brien Under O’Brien, the Texans seemed lost of both sides of the ball and appeared gutted after winning AFC South in three of the previous four seasons A stint to Romeo Crennel, 73, to head coach is not yet permanent, but he has started his reign as more former historic NFL head coach with a convincing win, as Deshaun Watson threw for 359 yards and three touchdowns while leading Houston past Jacksonville, 30-14 The big question is whether Houston can do something like that against a team that presents something that looks like an NFL defense

These aren’t always the guys you expect You’d be forgiven if you had never heard of Travis Fulgham or Chase Claypool before Sunday Fulgham, a sophomore wide receiver for the Eagles, was a sixth round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2019 and was canceled twice (once by Detroit, once by Green Bay) before ending up in Philadelphia Claypool, a rookie wide receiver for the Steelers, was a second-round pick this year.They started the day with eight career receptions combined, but more than doubled that number as they faced off in one of the battles. the most unlikely and entertaining you will meet

Fulgham was all over the field, catching 10 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown as he fueled a Philadelphia offense that looked surprisingly good against the Pittsburgh big secondary But it was nothing compared to Claypool, who has made seven catches for 110 yards and three touchdowns receiving, while running the ball three times for 6 yards and a fourth score Claypool’s fourth touchdown of the day came on a 35-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger, and it sidelined the game for Pittsburgh in a 38-29 victory

Browns 32, Colts 23 In October 1994, « Pulp Fiction », « Forrest Gump », « The Shawshank Redemption » and « Jurassic Park » were all in theaters and the Browns, coached by Bill Belichick, were 4-1 Since then the Browns resumed and moved to Baltimore after the 1995 season, were resurrected in Cleveland in 1999 and 56 players threw at least one pass But until Sunday, they hadn’t managed another 4-1 start

Raiders 40, Chiefs 32 Not only did the Chiefs lose a game for the first time since November on October 10, 2019, they made it home watching a team look a lot like them with rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III using his revolutionary speed to burn the Kansas City defense for 113 yards on just two receptions, one of which was a 72-yard touchdown

Cowboys 37, Giants 34 Dallas must be happy to have invested in a veteran replacement, as Andy Dalton may not be perfect, but he is way better than many teams would have if they lost their quarterback. -franchise back for the season Scoring a win in this game was a start, but execution will obviously need to be improved

Ravens 27, Bengals 3 Lamar Jackson had a day far below his usual standards, but Baltimore didn’t need much of his offense thanks to a formidable effort from his defense, which Joe Burrow reminded of that he’s a rookie having seven players record a sack, including Patrick Queen, who had nine tackles, a sack and two fumble digs, the second of which he returned 53 yards for a touchdown

Steelers 38, Eagles 29 A win is a win, but Pittsburgh should be concerned with both their secondary struggles against Philadelphia and one of the team’s best off-season acquisitions, tight end Eric Ebron, having a difficult fourth quarter in which he dropped the ball in a key situation during a practice and was pushed out of the way for a near interception – the ball hit the ground before being caught – on the next

Dolphins 43, 49ers 17 Miami totaled more than twice as many yards as San Francisco, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three touchdown passes and Jimmy Garoppolo was benched for his own safety in a game that immediately derailed for the reigning NFC champions

Rams 30, Footballers 10 It was hardly a perfect game for Los Angeles, but Jared Goff pitched for 309 yards, rookie backer Cam Akers came back from injury averaging 68 yards per carry, Robert Woods hit a 56-yard touchdown pass and Aaron Donald equalized his career with four sacks

Cardinals 30, Jets 10 DeAndre Hopkins’ injured ankle appears to be healed, as he torches the Jets for six catches, 131 yards and one touchdown, ruining Joe Flacco’s first start since Week 8 of last season

Panthers 23, Falcons 16 Todd Gurley turned back time with 121 yards (in just 14 carries) and one touchdown, Calvin Ridley had eight receptions for 136 yards and Atlanta again lost by a touchdown, at home, to a team is missing its best player One wonders how this team, as built, could win a game

Texans 30, Jaguars 14 It would take hard work to find a play executed worse than a fourth and one on the opponent’s 8-yard line in which a team trailing 13-7 (Jacksonville) made a snap straight to a running back (James Robinson), had him roll like he was going to pass only to simply drop the ball non-contact for a roll that all but decided the game in Houston’s favor. p>
