NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Week 10 Schedule and More
November 7, 2014
Week 10 in the NFL has officially begun with the conclusion of the Browns-Bengals game last night. Now we’ve got just a couple more days to wait before the rest of the games on Sunday (and Monday), so let’s use this downtime to check out some of the noteworthy names out there right now. Here’s the latest.
TNF Wrap-Up: Don’t look now, but the Browns are in first place in the AFC North again, thanks to a “Thursday Night Football” victory over their intrastate rivals the Bengals. Cleveland dominated the game from start to finish, racking up 170 rushing yards in a 24-5 drubbing.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton was rattled once again, forced into a 10-of-33 performance for just 86 yards and three interceptions. By comparison, Brian Hoyer went 15-of-23 for 198.

Matt Ryan will be a player to watch this week as the Falcons try to break out of their five-game slide against the Buccaneers this week. He’s got a pretty good history coming out of a bye, and shouldn’t have a whole lot of trouble with the Bucs defense.
Ryan has had some difficulties with the health of his offensive line this season, which is a big reason for the ineptitude of that unit. That said, he should be successful here like he was in these two teams’ earlier meeting this season, when he posted 286 yards and three passing scores.
Dolphins RB Lamar Miller was able to practice yesterday, one day after participating in the Wednesday session. That’s good news for Miami, as there had been talk that his shoulder injury might keep him sidelined for the Week 10 game against the Lions.
Miller has been able to play every game this season and has six total touchdowns thus far.
Things aren’t looking too great for dynamic Bills rookie Sammy Watkins. He was out of practice yesterday, once again missing a session due to a groin injury. No word yet whether or not he’ll be able to suit up this weekend against Kansas City, but so far things aren’t looking so good.
The Cowboys seem to be optimistic about Tony Romo’s chances of playing this weekend in London against the Jaguars. He practiced on a limited basis yesterday and took a few individual reps as well.
Assuming Romo does start, don’t expect a whole lot from him. The team will be relying heavily on DeMarco Murray and the running game regardless.
Week 10 NFL Schedule: It’s time to start looking forward to Week 10 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.
