Bucs QB Jameis Winston shows growth in key areas vs. Falcons
- September 14, 2016

A home team with a 10-0 halftime lead against a team that just lost its quarterback for the year probably shouldn't lose if it expects to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Monday Night Football NFL roundup
- September 14, 2016

At the very worst, the Rams may quickly decide that they won't be a very competitive team this year and choose to give Goff as many reps as possible. "That's not the way we play, and that wasn't our best football", Donald said.
