Bucs' Jameis Winston: 'The quarterback has to make a play'
- October 08, 2017

However, in Patriots vs Buccaneers it will take them more than 25 points to win. Fortunately, Gostkowski has been at the top of his game of late, and his 45-yard field goal boosted the Patriots into a 16-7 lead. The offensive line has taken their fair share of criticism in Tampa Bay, but they got the job done against the defending Super Bowl champs, giving Winston more than enough time to make plays down the field.

He was the fourth Giants receiver to leave the game due to injury, including Dwayne Harris (broken foot), Brandon Marshall (left ankle) and Sterling Shepard ... (more...)

Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery doubtful vs. Dallas Cowboys Green Bay Packers RB Ty Montgomery doubtful vs. Dallas Cowboys
- October 08, 2017

The Packers' Ty Montgomery poses a similar threat out of the backfield but is listed a doubtful after suffering broken ribs against Chicago.
