Falcons Prepare for Vikings

Falcons Prepare for Vikings

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(ATLANTA) -- The Atlanta Falcons will travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings on Sunday.

Minnesota will be sending out rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for his first career start after veteran Matt Cassel was injured last weekend and ruled out for the remainder of the season.

"It's a lifelong dream to play and start in this league," Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said of Bridgewater making his first start.  "It's a really special day; it's one that you'll never forget.  I think Teddy will do a great job."

Falcons head coach Mike Smith knows that facing a rookie quarterback will be tough for his defense.

"We've got a challenge in my mind with an athletic quarterback to be able to keep him in the pocket," Smith said after Monday's practice.

"He is very athletic. ... He was able to make some plays with his feet. That's another dynamic. ... I think you'll see they want to put the ball in his hands and give him some run-pass options. That's one of his strengths, the ability to extend plays, and he did a great job as a college quarterback extending plays. We'll have to do some different things in preparing for him, in regards to pass rush and pass-rush lanes."

Atlanta is averaging 34.3 points per game this season and Ryan went 21 of 24 and threw three touchdowns in their 56-14 rout of the Rams last Thursday.

"They've got a lot of weapons," Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said.  "We're going to have to do a great job of being in the right place.  We have to make sure we're in the right position of coverage all day."Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Raiders ‘Host’ Dolphins at Wembley Stadium

Raiders ‘Host’ Dolphins at Wembley Stadium

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(LONDON) -- The Oakland Raiders will "host" the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on Sunday. 

Oakland was designated the "home" team for their game and both teams are looking forward to the opportunity of showcasing the NFL to new fans.

Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr wants to get his first win of the season anyway possible.

"I'll throw five touchdowns or five picks," Carr said Wednesday.  "I could care less, I just want to win, that's all this game is about, that's all that matters in the NFL."

"It's a good football team," Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said of Miami. "They like to pressure the quarterback; we've got to understand what they're trying to do.  We've got to take care of the front-four; we've got to be able to make some plays down the field when we get some opportunities."

The Raiders are coming off a 16-9 loss last week against New England.

Tannehill Dislikes How Philbin Handled Quarterback Question

Tannehill Dislikes How Philbin Handled Quarterback Question

Leon Halip/Getty Images(DAVIE, Fla.) -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill isn't a fan of the way his head coach didn't declare him the starter for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin was asked multiple times this week if Tannehill would be the starting quarterback on Sunday, but the third-year head coach declined to respond. "Obviously, it doesn't feel good," Tannehill said when talking about Philbin's lack of response. "It creates a bunch of stir (and) a bunch of distraction in the locker room -- mostly from the outside coming in and guys having to deal with the distraction of it. So it's not a good feeling." Tannehill has said he has since talked with Philbin and it appears the 26-year-old will start Sunday in London. This is Tannehill's third season with the Dolphins. During that time, he has made 35 starts going 16-19, while completing 59.1% of his passes.

Cary Williams Apologizes for Practice Comments

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA) -- Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Cary Williams apologized Tuesday to his teammates and coach regarding remarks he made after Sunday's game about how the team practices.Williams blamed the Eagles sluggish starts in their first three contests on head coach Chip Kelly's up-tempo practices. "When you're a pro for seven years and you make a mistake, you understand you affected the welfare of everybody in this locker room, and you have to address those guys man to man and let them know that you're sorry," Williams said. "That's what I did."Williams and Kelly have since talked about the player's controversial comments. "I'm not telling you guys anything that Chip said to me personally," Williams said to the media. "We just had a great conversation, guys. We have a little bit more of an understanding. We understand where each other stand. We're able to agree on some things. That was that."

Linebacker James Harrison Ends Retirement, Returns to Steelers

Linebacker James Harrison Ends Retirement, Returns to Steelers

NFL via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Less than three weeks after holding a retirement ceremony in Pittsburgh, veteran linebacker James Harrison has decided to come back and return to the Steelers.

"It's really family here, and I wanted to come back and finish it off where it started," Harrison said earlier this month.

The Steelers recently lost two of their starting linebackers as Jarvis Jones and Ryan Shazier were both injured Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers. Facing a shortage of linebackers, the team decided to go back in time to bring back one of their long-time leaders.

The 36-year-old Harrison spent the first nine of his ten-year career with the Steelers and won two Super Bowls during his time in Pittsburgh. He played one season with the Cincinnati Bengals and decided that 2013 would be his last season in the NFL, before returning.

Lions LB Tulloch Done for Season

Lions LB Tulloch Done for Season

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) -- Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee Sunday in the Lions win over the Green Bay Packers. The injury occurred while Tulloch was celebrating a sack of quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter. Tulloch stayed in the game for one more play before leaving the field for good. “Obviously he’s disappointed,” Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s been one of our fine team leaders, but obviously he’ll still be around helping our guys with a little instruction and things of that nature." The 29-year-old Tulloch has never missed a game since being drafted in 2006. Tulloch had 135 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and an interception last season for the Lions.

ESPN: Steelers Lose LB Jarvis Jones at Least 8 Weeks

Pittsburgh Steelers/NFL(PITTSBURGH) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Jarvis Jones was placed on the injured reserve/designated to return list Monday, according to ESPN.com. Jones had surgery on his wrist Monday after he dislocated it during the team's 37-19 victory over the Carolina Panthers Sunday.

The 24-year-old Jones, who was drafted by the Steelers with the 17th overall selection of the 2013 NFL Draft, had 14 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in three games this season.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, linebacker James Harrison, who retired less than three weeks ago, is expected to join the Steelers.

Nick Laham/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- Down by eight with 3:18 left in the game, quarterback Geno Smith led the New York Jets 71 yards before his fourth down pass to Jeremy Kerley was caught out of bounds, sealing the Chicago Bears a 27-19 win Monday night.

Jay Cutler completed 23 of 38 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns -- both to tight end Martellus Bennett -- in the win.

"Right now I feel I'm very intelligent on the field," Bennett said. "The game is getting a lot easier. I know the offense better. I know what Jay wants."

Chargers Running Back Danny Woodhead Likely Out for Season

Chargers Running Back Danny Woodhead Likely Out for Season

Peter G. Aiken/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Already dealing with an injury to starting running back Ryan Mathews, San Diego Chargers running back Danny Woodhead is likely out the rest of the season with a severe high ankle sprain as well as a fractured fibula.

Woodhead suffered the injury during the first quarter of the team's win over the Buffalo Bills. He needed to be carted off the field.

"Hey, we're going to keep rolling," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said. "We have to keep going, and we're not going to make any excuses."

Donald Brown, who signed with the team during the offseason, will likely see the bulk of the carries while Mathews recovers from a MCL knee sprain.

"Unfortunately, that's the nature of the sport," said Brown, who finished with 62 yards on 31 carries in San Diego's 22-10 win at Buffalo. "Guys are going to get hurt, and other guys have to step out and carry the load. Next man (up) is pretty much the mantra of this team."

Woodhead ends his season with 38 rushing yards on 15 carries.

Seahawks Win Super Bowl Rematch in Overtime

Seahawks Win Super Bowl Rematch in Overtime

Jay Drowns/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- Marshawn Lynch scored on a six-yard touchdown run on the first drive in overtime, giving the Seattle Seahawks a 26-20 win over Denver in a rematch of Super Bowl 48.

Lynch capped off an 80-yard drive that denied the Broncos (2-1) a comeback win over the team that beat them for the championship in February.

Peyton Manning led a furious fourth quarter rally, erasing a 14-point deficit with a game-tying touchdown pass to Jacob Tamme with 18 seconds remaining in regulation. A successful two-point conversion knotted the game at 20-20, sending the contest into overtime.

However, Seattle (2-1) ensured a win as Russell Wilson led the team down the field on the opening possession of overtime. Wilson finished the game with 258 passing yards and two touchdowns, while also rushing for 40 yards.

The Seahawks led 17-3 at halftime as Wilson connected with both Ricardo Lockette and Lynch on touchdown passes in the first half to take the early lead. Lynch was later tackled in the end zone for a safety, sparking the Broncos comeback.

Manning's day ended with 303 passing yards and two touchdowns but also threw a pick in the fourth quarter.

Cowboys Rally from Down 21, Beat Rams

Cowboys Rally from Down 21, Beat Rams

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(SAINT LOUIS) -- The Dallas Cowboys mounted the largest comeback in franchise history, rallying from a 21-0 deficit to beat the St. Louis Rams 34-31 on Sunday.

It's the fourth time this season a team has won after trailing by at least 17 points.

The Rams (1-2) opened up their lead with a pair of first half touchdown throws from Austin Davis, holding a 14-0 lead just seconds into the second quarter. The advantage then went to 21 when Janoris Jenkins picked off Dallas quarterback Tony Romo and returned it 25 yards to the end zone. However, the St. Louis defense could not hold back a pass-happy Cowboys squad.

Romo led the comeback march beginning with an 80-yard scoring drive late in the first half, capped off by a DeMarco Murray touchdown run to get on the board. A field goal with just two seconds left in the period made it a 21-10 game at halftime.

"We never blinked, I can honestly say that," wide receiver Dez Bryant said.

Bryant contributed to the rally, catching a 68-yard pass from Romo in the third that brought the Cowboys (2-1) within four points. After another Dan Bailey field goal, Dallas trailed 21-20 heading into the final frame.

St. Louis would get a field goal early in the fourth, making it a four point contest, but Romo again captained a drive that ended with a Terrance Williams 12-yard touchdown catch, giving the Cowboys their first lead of the game at 27-20. On the next Rams possession, Bruce Carter returned an interception for a touchdown to help put the game out of reach.

The Rams did get a late score on an Austin Pettis touchdown reception, but they were unable to complete a comeback of their own. Despite throwing two picks, Davis tossed for 327 yards and three touchdowns in the loss for St. Louis.

Romo rebounded from an early interception to finish with 217 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns, earning his franchise-best 21st come-from-behind victory in the fourth quarter or overtime.

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, PA.) -- The Philadelphia Eagles moved to 3-0 with a 37-34 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

The game was full of hard hits, injuries and even a brawl as the teams battled back and forth. 

Washington receiver DeSean Jackson, a former Eagle, drew significant attention as he was a frequent target of Philadelphia defenders. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy briefly left the game after a stunning hit by Washington defensive back David Amerson.

Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall said after the game he believes he suffered a torn Achilles.

After an interception by Washington cornerback Bahaud Breeland (that was later overturned), Foles took a strong hit from Chris Baker.  Foles laid on the ground for several minutes as his teammates, including tackle Jason Peters, came to his defense and a brawl ensued on the Redskins sideline.  Several punches were thrown; both Baker and Peters were ejected.

Cardinals Place LB Abraham on Season-Ending Reserve

Cardinals Place LB Abraham on Season-Ending Reserve

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Arizona Cardinals placed outside linebacker John Abraham on season-ending injured reserve because of a concussion on Friday.

Abraham suffered a concussion in week 1 against the San Diego Chargers and left the team for a week.

Abraham was entered into the NFL's concussion protocol due to league rules with any concussion related injury, but was unable to pass the final stages of the test on Tuesday.

Following another unsuccessful attempt on Thursday, the team placed him on injured reserve after doctors decided it would be best for him to not play for a year.

"We're going to miss his leadership," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. "He was like an extra coach. He had so much knowledge, and he shared it with all the young guys every single day not just outside 'backers. Everybody. And was fun-loving, and I'll miss him in the locker room."

Abraham is the NFL's active leader in sacks with 133.5.

Andy Dalton, Bengals Look to Start 3-0

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals are looking to go 3-0 for the first time since 2006 when they host the Tennessee Titans (1-1) on Sunday.

Cincinnati has a ten-game win streak at home headed into Sunday.

Quarterback Andy Dalton is well aware of the Titans defense. "They do a good job with different looks," Dalton said of the Titans defense.  "We have to be sharp mentally to handle what they're going to throw at us."

Dalton hasn't thrown an interception or been sacked yet this year and credited the hard work of his offensive line.

"It's been a thing that we've really prided ourselves on," Dalton said.  "It's one of our top goals, win the game, then no turnovers and then no sacks.  We've done a good job of that obviously, so we've got to keep that going."

The Bengals will have a bye following their game against Tennessee on Sunday and will play the Patriots in week 5.
