D.K. Metcalf Is What Seattle Dreamed About

When the Seattle Seahawks drafted wide receiver D.K. Metcalf in the second round of this year's draft, there was a ton of criticism about how Metcalf was nothing but a workout warrior.

Tyler Lockett Should Be Licking His Chops

Coming off a big week where he snagged 10 passes for 79 yards, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett gets to face another one of the softest secondaries in the league.

Rashaad Penny Needs To Hit The Big One

Seattle Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny led the team in rushing last week, but it was really because of one big run that he got fortunate on.

Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson will be facing the best run defense he's seen this year when he welcomes the Saints to Seattle on Sunday.

Thomas Davis Tied For NFL Lead In Tackles

When the Los Angeles Chargers signed 36-year-old linebacker Thomas Davis over the offseason, the question was whether he would still have it. That seems to be clear now.

Justin Jackson Leads The League In Yards Per Carry

Los Angeles Chargers running back Justin Jackson has become the new Austin Ekeler. Not the 2019 version of Ekeler that is blowing up and costing Melvin Gordon millions of dollars. The 2017 and 2018 version of Ekeler that worked as the change-of-pace back and put up gaudy YPC numbers while Gordon did the dirty work.... Read More

Austin Ekeler Facing Best Defense Yet

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler is in for another challenge on Sunday as he faces a Texans Defense that has been better than either of the teams he's faced so far this season.

Jakob Junis To Be Shut Down

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Jakob Junis looks to be done for 2019.

Ian Kennedy Records 30th Save

Kansas City Royals relief pitcher Ian Kennedy did it.
