Bridgewater expected to play for Vikes in week 5‏

Teddy Bridgewater had one of the best starting games by a rookie quarterback in NFL history this past weekend.

The Minnesota Vikings first-round pick went 19 of 30 for 317 yards and a rushing touchdown in 41-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

The 21-year-old left the game with 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter after suffering an ankle injury.

According to Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, Teddy is feeling fine and his MRI came back negative.

That’s good news for Minnesota fans who are looking forward to more “Teddy Time” in this week’s matchup against the rival Green Bay Packers.

Minnesota squares off with Green Bay in Week 5’s edition of Thursday Night Football.

Manuel out, Orton in as Bills starting QB‏

Kyle Orton will be the Buffalo Bills (2-2) starting quarterback when the team travels to Detroit to play the Lions this Sunday.

Head coach Doug Marrone announced the news on Monday, stating the following to members of the media:

“I didn’t ask (the front office) for an agreement,” Marrone said, via ESPN.com. “I just went in and said this is the direction I’m going.”

Marrone wouldn’t commit to Orton being the starter for the remainder of the 2014 season, but insisted that the Bills needed a change:

“(We) can’t keep going in direction that we’re going,” Marrone said.

The Bills first-round draft pick in 2013, EJ Manuel, had a horrible week 4 performance against the Texans. Manuel threw 2 interceptions in the loss, including an 80-yard pick-six to J.J. Watt.

Meanwhile, veteran quarterback Kyle Orton signed a 2-year, $11 million deal with the Bills in August. The former Cowboy and Bronco will make his first start for the Bills organization this Sunday in Detroit.

Patriots at Chiefs Monday Night Football Preview‏

Patriots at Chiefs Monday Night Football Preview‏

By: Chris Taylor

 

 

 

The New England Patriots (2-1) will travel to Kansas City tonight to take on the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium for this week’s edition of Monday Night Football.

New England is coming off a 16-9 victory over the lowly Oakland Raiders in Week 3.

Tom Brady has played decent through 3 games this season, throwing for 632 yards and 3 touchdowns thus far.

Those numbers are way down compared to year’s past, but this is clearly a different New England offense.

The Patriots defense has allowed just 273 yards per game so far this season, which is good for third-best in the NFL.

Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs (1-2) are coming off their first win of the 2014 NFL season, this by defeating the Dolphins last week in Miami by a final score of 34-15.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for 186 and 3 touchdowns in that game, while running-back Knile Davis posted 132 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

The Patriots have gone 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 trips to Arrowhead, while the Chiefs have gone 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 games as home favorites.

I think this game stays close for the better part of 4 quarters, but Tom Brady will get the job done in the final minutes.

My prediction is a 27-24 win for New England.
