11/20/17 - *Joe Mixon, Okla, Bengals RB Joe Mixon carried 20 times and was held to 49 yards, an average of 2.5 yards per carry. Overall, Cincinnati also had 49 yards on the ground, below its league-low average of 70 yards per game.
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis acknowledged the ongoing problems with the rushing attack, but also noted the overall offensive productivity in notching the victory.
11/20/17 - Jake Elliott, Memphis, Bengals PK Jake Elliott suffered a head injury making a tackle on the opening kickoff as Cowboys returner Ryan Switzer brought the game-opening kick back to the Eagles' 37-yard line.
Elliott remained in the game to kick an extra point, but missed a 34-yard field goal later in the first quarter and was evaluated after that for a head injury.
Philadelphia head coach Doug Pederson refused to pinpoint the exact moment of Elliott's injury, but the tackle on Switzer was the kicker's only obvious contact play.
"I've got to watch a little bit of the film and see, but until I know more, I'm not going to speculate on the head injury at this time," Pederson said.
When Elliott couldn't return to the game, Philadelphia was forced to improvise on special teams. Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill took over kicking off and the Eagles went for two-point conversions after all four of their second-half touchdowns, successfully converting three.
11/20/17 - Nathan Peterman, Pitt, Bills QB Nathan Peterman, a fifth-round pick from Pittsburgh, was dreadful as he made bad decisions and he couldn't handle the Chargers' pass rush. Peterman, who was 6 of 14 for 66 yards, was replaced by Tyrod Taylor with 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter.
"I've had tough games before," Peterman said. "You don't lose, you learn."
Peterman heaved five first-half interceptions to fuel the Los Angeles Chargers in their 54-24 triumph over Buffalo at the StubHub Center on Sunday. He completed six of 14 passes for 66 yards and a rating of 17.9.
"I'm going to go back and learn from this as much as I can," Peterman said.
Peterman's first half was unsightly, but not quite historic. Joe Ferguson threw six picks in a game for the Bills in 1974 against the Houston Oilers. The Chargers' record for interceptions is six, when they flustered the Colts' Peyton Manning in 2007.
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Peterman started for the first time since last year when leading Pittsburgh to a school-record 532 points and an upset of eventual national champion Clemson. But in his two years with the Panthers, and two before that with Tennessee, he never produced a day like Sunday.
11/20/17 - Harrison Butker, Georgia Tech, Panthers PK Harrison Butker's three field goals gave him 22 straight conversions, the fifth-longest streak in franchise history.

11/18/17 - Hardy Nickerson, Illinois, Undrafted The Cincinnati Bengals promoted linebacker Hardy Nickerson from their practice squad Saturday and waived veteran defensive tackle Pat Sims in a corresponding move.

Nickerson has played in seven games for the Bengals this season, making two tackles on special teams. He also spent Weeks 4 and 5 on the team's practice squad.

11/17/17 - *Leonard Fournette, LSU, Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette was still listed as limited in Thursday's practice with an ankle injury. He indicated in the locker room after practice that he would be playing although he wasn't looking forward to the weather forecast (low 30s, snow). He said, "I'm not for playing in the snow or cold. I'm just trying to get my mind ready for that. I hate the cold, period. I sleep in heat, that's just how I grew up. Mentally, I'm trying to get my mind ready."

Fluker (ankle) ailing, so Wheeler is trying to diversify his talents to help boost the depth.
11/16/17 - Dede Westbrook, Okla, Jaguars WR Dede Westbrook has great expectations heading into his potential NFL debut on Sunday against the winless Cleveland Browns. Westbrook, who could be activated off injured reserve this week following core muscle surgery, offered the following to "Teal & Black Blitz" on SportsRadio 930 Wednesday: "My expectations are high," Westbrook said. "I always set the standard high for myself. For me, and this has nothing to do with the Cleveland Browns at all, but my expectation is a 200-yard receiving game. Of course that's going to come with me and Blake (Bortles) being on the same page most of the game, but at the end of the day, that's the expectations that I have for myself this weekend."
