The Buccaneers are riding a win streak of their own after beating the Dolphins on Monday night. It almost didn’t happen. Sitting on a narrow lead, the Buccaneers defense sent blitz after blitz, and the offense kept sending four receivers on go routes under the four-minute mark. It was no match for Miami’s incompetence. Win or not, the fact remains that the Buccaneers are a poorly coached team. The Falcons just stink, mostly, because of injuries and being enamored with over-the-hill running backs.
Richie Incognito’s indefinite suspension by the Miami Dolphins can last a maximum of four games under the labor deal struck by the NFL and the players’ union, according to Pro Football Talk. As a result, Incognito could be back playing or released by Week 14, when the Dolphins play the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Incognito’s suspension comes in the wake of Jonathan Martin’s sudden departure from the team amid reports that he received constant harassment from teammates, Incognito chief among them. The NFL is currently investigating the allegations, which include the threatening and racist text messages and voicemails sent to Martin by Incognito.
Incognito could still return to the team earlier than Week 14, perhaps if the NFL investigation quickly concludes that the guard engaged in abusive behavior. He could also be suspended again, though, if the team would have to find reason to do so (and Incognito appears perfectly capable of providing that reason).
The decision date will be Dec. 2, the day after the Dolphins’ Week 13 bout against the New York Jets.
Some books have this as close as a single point in favor of the Lions. Don’t put that much thought into it.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Chris Givens left Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers with an apparent ankle injury.
Givens gained 24 yards on a sideline pass before being taken down by a diving tackler. He was able to stand, but was noticeably in pain before heading to the sideline to be evaluated by trainers. Givens was pointing to his ankle and had his head in his hands as trainers removed his cleat, but did not leave the field.
Pressure will be on rookie Tavon Austin if Givens is forced to miss any significant time. He has had an up-and-down day in Carolina as Austin fumbled the ball early to allow the Panthers to regain field position after a long drive, then caught a deep Sam Bradford pass for the touchdown that was erased by a penalty.
The Rams are moving the ball effectively through the air, already throwing for 127 yards with over five minutes remaining in the first half, but this could be limited without their top receiver.
The NFL’s Week 6 injury report features a number of key players, with the status of Patriots’ TE Rob Gronkowskiproviding plenty of intrigue as New England prepares to take on the New York Jets. Here are some notable injuries, and their impact, for Week 6:
Gronkowski has missed the entire season thus far after Nike Elite Cheap Jerseys recovering from surgeries to his forearm and back. However, according to his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, he has been medically cleared to return today against the Jets and is listed as questionable on the Patriots’ injury report. Medical clearance, however, does not necessarily translate to Gronkowski taking the field today. That decision will ultimately be made by Head Coach Bill Belichick prior to kickoff. Gronkowski has been practicing in full with the team, and by all accounts is healthy enough to take the field. If he does, it would provide a huge boost to the Patriots, who have been Online Cheap Jerseys struggling to find consistency in the passing game thus far in the 2013 campaign.
