Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension delayed after New York federal court grants NFLPA’s motion

Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension has been delayed once again after a federal court in New York granted the players association’s motion for a temporary restraining order (TRO) good for 14 days, at which point a judge will decide whether to grant a preliminary injunction.

The TRO will remain in effect until Oct. 30 or until the presiding judge, Katherine Polk Failla, hears the case. That means Elliott will suit up this week against the 49ers and will likely play in Week 8 against Washington.

The NFL is fresh off its latest legal victory, when the 5th Circuit Court granted the league a stay on the injunction that was keeping Elliott on the field. The panel of three judges at the 5th Circuit ruled in a split decision that the district court judge who issued the injunction didn’t have subject matter jurisdiction because the NFLPA filed its lawsuit before Elliott’s NFL appeal was done.

We’re playing football. It’s unfortunate that he got hurt but I think everything was above board. We’re not a dirty football team. We’ll never be a dirty football team as long as I’m here. We’re going to play within the rules and sometimes things happen.

Five weeks of the 2017 season have come and gone without a single Browns win. Sunday provided their best chance yet, with the Browns welcoming the Jets to Cleveland. Instead, the Browns lost a 17-14 heartbreaker.

DeShone Kizer was benched after completing 8 of 17 passes for 87 yards, a pick, and a costly red zone fumble. Kevin Hogan came into the game and actually got the Browns their first lead of the season. He completed 16 of 19 for 194 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. But it wasn’t enough to get past the Jets, led by former Browns QB Josh McCown, who finally got a win in Cleveland.

Literally, the Chiefs won, making them last undefeated team left standing.

Smith is playing his best football. He finished with 324 yards and three touchdowns. The defense is a strength, and the pass rush brought down Deshaun Watson three times. And special teams, particularly returner Tyreek Hill, is a real threat.

You want to be able to run the ball successfully because it takes the pressure off your quarterback, and it also makes your play-action a lot more effective, said Rivera, who played for the Bears and is 1-2 against his former team as a coach. It’s two-fold. We’ve got to be able to get things back on track.

Rookie running back Christian McCaffrey has provided a spark out of the backfield, but mostly for his hands. He leads the team with 37 receptions and has scored touchdowns in back-to-back games.

Neither team has performed well in turnover margin, but something has to give this weekend. The Bears rank second-to-last in the league with a minus-8 turnover margin, and Carolina is fourth-to-last at minus-6.

The Panthers will play on 10 days’ rest after losing 28-23 to the Philadelphia Eagles last Thursday night. They are 3-0 on the road this season, which makes them one of five teams that are unbeaten away from home.

This marks the 10th all-time meeting between the teams. Chicago holds a 5-4 edge but lost the most recent matchup in 2014 as the Panthers held on for a 31-24 victory.

My favorite stat to look at when looking at matchups is third down success rate. The Eagles defense is fifth best on third downs, while the Panthers offense is second in the NFL on third down.
