Tom Brady is 2-5 in games at Denver and the Patriots' offense is running low on offensive weapons. Can they keep the streak going? Three teams that look playoff worthy? The Seahawks, Texans and ... Bucs.
Can Big Ben and the Steelers keep pace with the division-leading Bengals? They'll have to get past the Seahawks -- in Seattle. Will Brock Osweiler give the Broncos a fighting chance against the 10-0 Patriots?
The Jets enter Week 9 against the Chiefs relatively healthy. Out of 15 players listed on the injury report, Darrin Walls (calf, knee) was ruled doubtful for Sunday.Geno Smith (shoulder) was labeled questionable.
Decker (knee) caught four passes for 81 yards on 11 targets Sunday against the Texans.
With the Texans playing most of the game without their two top cornerbacks, it was disappointing that Decker was only able to catch four of his team-high 11 targets. In addition, the Jets were playing most of the second half from behind and the team was in heavy pass mode during that time. that said, this was only the second time all season he failed to score a TD. In addition, he's posted at least 79 receiving yards in four of his last five contests.
Coach Todd Bowles relayed Monday that Fitzpatrick (thumb) will remain the Jets' starting QB.
According to Bowles, in the wake of Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Texans, in which Fitzpatrick completed 19-of-39 passes for 216 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions, there was "not much" thought to making a change at QB. Next up for Fitzpatrick and the 5-5 Jets -- who have dropped two games in a row -- is a home tilt against the 4-6 Dolphins on Sunday.
Marshall (toe) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Marshall looks safe to roll with Sunday and is thus in line to continue to see his share of looks in the Jets' Week 12 offense. He's been targeted 10 times in each of his last two outings, about in line with his overall average of 10.7 on that front.
The Jets have lost two linebackers in a span of 24 hours, including strong-side backer Calvin Pace, who left practice Monday with a strained groin. The team has yet to reveal the severity of the injury, per ESPN.
Jones (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tennessee.
Jones returned to a limited practice Friday, after missing practice both Wednesday and Thursday. He doesn't seem like a good bet to suit up, which may explain why the Raiders signed WR Jeremy Ross, who has extensive experience returning punts and kickoffs. An absence wouldn't have much impact on Oakland's offense, as Jones typically plays fewer than 15 snaps. However, Roy Helu would likely be active for the first time since Week 8.
