San Diego Chargers: collapse is their middle name

Rivers

Heading into their Thursday Night showdown against the Broncos just a week and a half ago, the Chargers were considered a team that could outlast Peyton Manning for the AFC West title.

Cincinnati Bengals: your new Super Bowl favorite

It seems early to already be down to just one undefeated team in the AFC, but the Bengals are playing like they could maintain that storyline well into November.

They’re led by a defense who is hungry for more. Aside from the Ravens making a game of it late during the fourth quarter, the Bengals have been almost untouchable. That defense is suffocating opposing quarterbacks and running attacks; while the offense continues to play simple, efficient football.

Green Bay Packers jobbed by the replacement refs in Seattle

Not one call, not two calls, not three calls, but four bad calls led to the Seattle Seahawks’ 14-12 upset win over the Green Bay Packers.

None bigger than Russell Wilson’s desperation heave that the Packers’ (1-2) M.D. Jennings seemingly intercepted but was ruled a simultaneous catch and touchdown by the Seahawks’ (2-1) wide receiver Golden Tate.

Green Bay Packers vs. Seattle Seahawks: Brutally Honest Preview

For the 20th straight season, the Green Bay Packers will make an appearance on Monday Night Football, making the trip to CenturyLink Field to face off with the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle is a city currently crazed by rookie sensation Russell Wilson, a guy Packers nation should know very well from his time with the state’s second most important football team, the Wisconsin Badgers.

This game won’t be about quarterbacks though, it’s about a couple of defenses coming off top notch performances in week two wins.

Former Patriots, Saints, Seahawks FB Heath Evans Retires, Joins NFL Network

Veteran NFL fullback Heath Evans is done lacing ’em up on Sundays. This fall he’ll move to a more relaxing gig in the broadcast booth, joining the NFL Network as an in-studio analyst and reporter.

The 32-year-old Evans spent the last two seasons with the New Orleans Saints, including the 2009 Super Bowl championship season, after playing four years with the New England Patriots, which included the 2007 Super Bowl winning campaign.

So Evans got two rings during his career.

“I lived out part of my dream by playing 10 years in the NFL,” said Evans, who was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round (82nd overall) in 2001 after a stellar career at Auburn. “Now I’m excited to begin my second career staying connected to the game I love.”

After a trio of moves, the Seattle Seahawks should now be referred to as Minnesota-northwest.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter — the NFL’s busiest man — reports that the Seahawks and free agent receiver Sidney Rice have agreed to terms on five-year contract that’s worth up to $44 million dollars, including $18.5 million in guarantees.

The deal is contingent on Rice passing a physical, which is no slam dunk considering the former Vikings WR missed most of last season after undergoing hip surgery.
