NFL Updates: News From Around the League
We’ve still got one more game to look forward to on the Week 6 schedule in the NFL, so there’s a little football left to be played. In the meantime, we’ve got plenty to check out in today’s look around the league, so let’s see which players everyone is talking about right now.
SNF Wrap-Up: Now both New York NFL teams have been shut out this year. The Eagles destroyed the Giants in a game that was only interesting to Philly fans, walking away with a 27-0 victory dominant in every facet.
Making things worse for Big Blue is the fact that Victor Cruz’s season is expected to be over; He tore the patellar tendon in his right knee during the third quarter.

The Jets suffered another debilitating loss yesterday against the Broncos, though they were in the game until the final seconds. Emerging from the smoldering wreckage here was New York TE Jace Amaro, who was the Jets’ best receiver, logging 68 yards and a TD on 10 grabs.
That gives Amaro 21 catches in his last four appearances, and he won’t have a whole lot of time to prepare for his next game. The Jets will head into Foxboro to face the Patriots on “Thursday Night Football.”
Speaking of the Broncos-Jets game, let’s look at Denver’s backfield, which was a question mark heading into this one.
Ronnie Hillman, as expected, was the lead back here, posting 25 touches for 105 yards against a solid Jets defense and helped Denver get over a penalty-filled win.
Sure, Hillman has C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson behind him, but the leash seems short here. If we don’t’ see a dominant effort against the Niners on Sunday, there will be a changing of the guard in Week 8.
The Bengals’ A.J. Green sat out in Week 6, and you can expect the same thing in Week 7. Although his toe injury won’t require surgery, he’ll more than likely take a seat against the Colts.
Green has an appointment with a doctor on Friday, so we’ll likely get an update then. In the meantime, fans and fantasy owners should consider him out until further notice.
Week 7 NFL Schedule: It’s time to start looking forward to Week 7 in the NFL. Here’s a look at the complete schedule, along with the start times and TV networks you can catch the games on.
