The Lions continued their trend of "we just like to celebrate, man" celebrations on Sunday. After scoring a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints, Golden Tate dropped The People's Elbow onto a poor, unsuspecting football that Tom Brady presumably asked to be shipped to New Jersey for further use after the play. Tate, ever the celebration connoisseur, said that television angles didn't give his celebration justice when The Rock took to Twitter to give him props. Tate even got The Rock's approval for his form, which honestly I would take into retirement with me if I were Tate. Although it is a little weird that Tate didn't get flagged for the remainder of the celebration. And to think. All of
Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The New Orleans Saints worked out running back Khiry Robinson on Monday, following the departure of Adrian Peterson. A source told the New Orleans Advocate that Robinson was in town for the workout. Robinson entered the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted rookie free agent signing by the Saints. He played his first three seasons in New Orleans before joining the Jets in 2016. Robinson, 27, has 788 yards and eight touchdowns on 194 career carries. He had 22 yards on eight carries last season for the Jets, appearing in one game. The Jets placed Robinson on injured reserve in December due to a broken leg. He was released on March 9 and participated in Jets minicamp on a tryout basis. New

The Dallas Cowboys were on a bye this week, but there was a lot of football action going on around the league. Here are 10 observations from this week’s action... 1. Hate to say it, but the Eagles are good It was painful to watch the Philadelphia Eagles play so well on Thursday night. They’ve been a team that had a strong defensive front, but were sketchy on the back end and didn’t have an offense that was consistent enough to be a winning football team. But things have changed. First off, Carson Wentz has been outstanding. In the last two games, he’s scored a total of seven touchdowns, made great plays with his legs, and has helped his offense score 28+ points in both of them (Hmm, sound familiar?).

NEW ORLEANS -- It was less than a month ago when I was writing about how the New Orleans Saints' embattled defense was on pace to shatter its own records for most yards, most touchdown passes and highest opponents’ passer rating allowed in a season. But, man, oh man, did they put an exclamation point on their remarkable turnaround Sunday.
Let’s enjoy another NFL Sunday, shall we? Unfortunately, a major injury dominated the news again. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and could be out the rest of the season. Where do the Packers go from here? The Falcons blew a 17-point lead at home and lost to the Dolphins. Deshaun Watson led the Texans to another big offensive performance against the Browns, who fell to 0-6. Another rookie quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, got his first win for the Bears — and might have helped saved John Fox’s job. In the afternoon, the NFL’s last remaining unbeaten team finally lost. The Steelers beat the Chiefs, in part because they finally let Le'Veon Bell run wild. Adrian Peterson made his debut for the
The New Orleans Saints made a stir last week when they traded running back Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals. It was easy to look at Peterson’s lack of production with the Saints and the Cardinals’ shaky offensive line and come to the conclusion that the 32-year-old wouldn’t be much better off in Arizona than he was in New Orleans. Wrong. The seven-time Pro Bowler finished the game with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in his debut with the Cardinals. He was the bell cow running back the Cardinals needed. He also helped take some pressure off quarterback Carson Palmer in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Saints saw immediate improvements in their running game too.
