Cameron Nizialek’s job could be jeopardized. The Atlanta Falcons’ punter had a terrible game against the Buccaneers on Sunday, missing not one, but two crucial punts in the fourth quarter. On Sunday, Sept., Jeff Schultz of The Athletic reported. The Falcons plan to work out punters ahead of their Week 3 matchup against the New York Giants, according to 19 after the game. That doesn’t mean they’ll cut Nizialek just yet, but the former Georgia Bulldog’s situation isn’t looking good. Deleting this screenshot Tweet and softening. The Falcons are planning to bring in punters on tryouts this week but have…

The offensive line for the New York Jets was atrocious in Week 1, and they drew a lot of criticism for it. Despite the final score, the unit knew they needed to bounce back with a strong showing in Week 2. Zach Wilson was subjected to some pressure, including four sacks and seven quarterback hits, but he wasn’t in danger like he was in Carolina. The New England Patriots’ pass rush was largely the result of good coverage and a jittery rookie quarterback who was holding on to the ball for much longer than usual. The problem that everyone predicted…

A former Dallas Cowboys first-round pick could soon be lending a hand in Green Bay’s defensive trenches to Kenny Clark. According to the NFL transaction wire on Monday, the Packers hosted former Cowboys defensive end Taco Charlton for a visit on September 20 ahead of their Monday Night Football matchup with the Detroit Lions. Charlton, the No. 28 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, appeared in 27 games for the Cowboys in his first two seasons, mostly as a backup to defensive end Randy Gregory.

It appears that Pro Football Focus got on the wrong side of one Los Angeles Rams defender on Monday, September 20th, despite the fact that he had his best game of the season. In terms of statistics, Rams nose tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day dominated the Indianapolis Colts in the trenches. On Sunday, September 19th, what was his final stat line? In a 27-24 road win over an AFC wildcard playoff team from last season, he had nine tackles, six solo stops, one tackle for a loss, one sack, and two quarterback hits.

After last season’s 34-20 loss to the then-reigning Super Bowl champions, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson referred to the Kansas City Chiefs as the team’s “kryptonite.” However, the Ravens may have their own super-weapon against Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City’s near-unstoppable offense in rookie outside linebacker Odafe Oweh, thanks to the Chiefs. The Ravens selected Oweh with the 31st overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, which they acquired from the Chiefs in April as part of the Orlando Brown Jr. trade. Kansas City didn’t expect their first-round pick to be used to select a player who would force two…

Carson came into the season with 21 rushing touchdowns, good for seventh all-time in franchise history. Ricky Watters had 22 points and was in sole possession of sixth place. Carson tied the retired running back in the second quarter with a two-yard run before passing…

Despite losing NBA All-Star James Harden to a hamstring injury in Game 1, the Brooklyn Nets led the Milwaukee Bucks 2-1 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals heading into Game 4. This included a 39-point thrashing at Barclays Center in Game 2 of the series. In the second half of Game 4, the Nets’ fortunes changed after All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving sprained his ankle badly in what would be his final game of the playoffs. While Kevin Durant put up insane numbers in games 5-7, it wasn’t enough as the Nets were defeated in seven games by the eventual champion…

Calvin Johnson was never given the opportunity to leave the Detroit Lions to pursue greatness elsewhere, but his former quarterback Matthew Stafford did, and the Hall of Fame wide receiver is happy about it. Stafford was traded from the Lions to the Los Angeles Rams and has had early success, which makes Johnson ecstatic to say the least, given the path his own career took later in the Motor City. $ Here’s where you can sign up for the Heavy on Lions newsletter.
