  • Brandon Marshall's missed practice time costing Bears on Sundays

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports16 hrs ago

    After another costly interception thrown by Jay Cutler in the Bears' loss to the Packers on Sunday, coach Marc Trestman blamed the lack of practice reps between his quarterback and wide receiver Brandon Marshall. ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio wonders if it’s time to rest Marshall, who has missed a ton of practice time this season while battling an ankle injury, so the Bears' offense can get back on the same page.

  • Cowboys throttle Saints 38-17 on Sunday Night Football

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports18 hrs ago

    This time, it’s the Saints who had to make one of the longest shortest flights in the NFL, the distance extended by the sheer weight of the defeat.

    After pummeling the Cowboys in recent years, they were the ones taking the beating Sunday night, losing 38-17 on  Sunday Night Football to fall to 1-3.

    We were disappointed and slightly embarrassed,” Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton said, via Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune .

    Having been there before, such as last year’s 49-17 loss in New Orleans, the Cowboys know the feeling.

    “They got the ride home this time. I had it last time, and it’s not fun. It’s a long ride. I never knew,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “I’ve had New Orleans friends all my life, but it’s a long ride when you have a night like I had a year ago.”

    The Saints made a brief run to close to within two touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but fell short in part after a ridiculous fake punt attempt.

  • Boston Bruins fill roster, re-sign Torey Krug and Reilly Smith

    It took Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli 10 days into training camp, but he finally has all his players signed and ready to go for the 2014-15 season.

    Chiarelli completed his roster Monday, when he re-signed defenseman Torey Krug and forward Reilly Smith to one-year contracts, both worth an annual salary-cap charge of $1.4 million.

    Both players were restricted free agents, but because of their service time at the NHL level lacked the rights to negotiate with other teams or take the Bruins to arbitration. They are both scheduled to be restricted free agents again next summer, when they will have arbitration rights.

    ''I think both sides assumed some risk and both sides benefit,'' Chiarelli said. ''They walk right into arbitration and that's the certainty of the deal. And if they both put up good numbers, so they have good cases. And from our perspective it helps us from a planning perspective this year, but we risk a higher number next year. So I'm OK with that.''
