  • 1 hour ago 49ers have little time to dwell on Packers loss with LA next

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers have little time to dwell on a heartbreaking loss to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

    The Niners have to immediately shift their focus to another tough test with the undefeated Los Angeles Rams coming to town on Sunday.

    Coach Kyle Shanahan spent Tuesday morning going over the details of the previous night's 33-30 loss to the Packers that featured Rodgers throwing the game-tying touchdown pass with 1:55 to play and then leading the game-winning field goal drive after an interception by C.J. Beathard.

    Then it was quickly on to the Rams (6-0), the NFL's only remaining unbeaten team, who will take on the 49ers (1-5) in just five days.

    Football Outsiders: Clutch Encounters: Week 6

    Week 6 was good for fans of some of the NFL's "flagship" or "media darling" teams. The Cowboys hung 40 points on Jacksonville's respected defense. The two Pennsylvania teams (Eagles and Steelers) took care of the division rivals they usually take care of in big games (Giants and Bengals). The Patriots and Packers won in dramatic fashion on Sunday and Monday night to end the week.

    If you're just a fan of competitive football in general, then Week 6 was really disappointing until those final two games in prime time. The three games in the late afternoon slate on Sunday were especially brutal, unless you enjoy watching Marcus Mariota take 11 sacks against Baltimore.

  • 8 hours ago What we learned in Week 6: Never count out a bad September team

    I got a flat tire on the way home from LaGuardia on Monday and it got me thinking. First, I thought, "This isn't going to help me make deadline on this week's What We Learned column." Then I thought, "Unless I use this experience in the column lead!"

    Maybe it's a stretch and maybe it's too meta, but when you're changing a tire in a rainy parking lot in Mamaroneck, New York, on your way home from rainy Cleveland, you've got to find some way to make it work for you.

  • Today at 8:24am Mosher: Chicago Bears' passing arsenal on full display in Miami

    Sunday's loss was a tough pill for the Bears to swallow. From missing the potential game-winning field goal in overtime to allowing Brock Osweiler to make big play after big play, it is a loss that could come back to haunt Chicago at the end of the season. One of the biggest reasons why this loss stings is the fact that QB Mitchell Trubisky played well.

    Since the merger, there have been 31 instances in which Bears quarterbacks had a passer rating north of 120.0. Chicago is 27-4 in those games, with one of the losses coming Sunday in overtime in Miami.

  • Today at 6:27am Mason Crosby's emotional week ends on high note for Packers

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Mason Crosby smiled as he left the field.

    It was quite the week for the Green Bay Packers' veteran kicker.

    Crosby hit four field goals, including the winner from 27 yards as time expired to lift the Packers past the San Francisco 49ers 33-30 on Monday night.

    "This week was a grind, it was one of the tougher weeks of my career," Crosby said.

    It began with rare questions about Crosby's reliability following four missed field goals and an extra-point try in a 31-23 loss in Detroit last week.

    It ended with a perfect night against the 49ers.

    Football Outsiders: Week 6 Quick Reads

    And now, the adventures of Marcus Mariota against the Baltimore Ravens, as told by the Voice of the Titans, Mike Keith of the Tennessee Titans radio network:

    "Play-fake, Mariota rolls right. Steps up, gets away from [Terrell Suggs] momentarily, and then takes a sack. [Chris Wormley] the beneficiary of Suggs' great pursuit."
    "Mariota from the gun. Blitz coming, Mariota pumps, sacked again, taken down this time by Za'Darius Smith."
    "Ravens show pressure. Mariota flushed out to his right. Rolling, rolling, rolling and will heave it out of bounds -- but he stepped out before he threw it.
  • Today at 2:05am Niners give Packers 2nd chance late after flag on Sherman

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers turned the ball over three times but still had a chance to hold off the Green Bay Packers.

    Then an illegal contact penalty on cornerback Richard Sherman with 43 seconds left wiped out a sack of Aaron Rodgers on third-and-15.

    No way were the Green Bay Packers going to give away a second chance at victory.

    Seven plays later, Mason Crosby kicked a 27-yard field goal as time expired to hand the young 49ers a 33-30 defeat.

    "It's part of the process and it's part of going against the best quarterback in football," Sherman said.

    Football Outsiders: OFI: Chaos Reigns in the Top 25

    Week 7 was the first real chaos week of the 2018 season: four top-ten teams lost to unranked or lesser-ranked teams, and nearly every AP top-25 school struggled:

    Four top-ten teams -- Georgia, West Virginia, Washington, and Penn State -- lost.
    Four other top-25 teams -- Wisconsin, Miami, Colorado, and Auburn -- also lost.
    Notre Dame, Texas, Central Florida, Texas A&M, and South Florida all won by one score against unranked teams.
    Ohio State and Florida both won by double digits, but looked sloppy and vulnerable doing so.
    Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa completed just 54.

    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers will be without receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison against the San Francisco 49ers because of hamstring injuries.

    It's the second straight week that the Packers will be without Cobb and Allison. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have to rely again on rookies Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown behind top wideout Davante Adams.

    Rookie cornerback Jaire Alexander will also miss the game with a groin injury. Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga is active, though, after being limited the past two days of practice because of a knee injury.

  • Yesterday at 3:33pm Tampa Bay Buccaneers fire DC Mike Smith

    The first coordinator to be jettisoned in the 2018 NFL season is Tampa Bay Buccaneers DC Mike Smith. LB coach Mark Duffner becomes the Bucs' interim defensive coordinator.

    "I have the utmost respect for Mike Smith as a man and a football coach, said Bucs coach Dirk Koetter. "These decisions are always difficult, but our top priority here is to ensure that we do everything possible to help this team team succeed. As I have said in the past, the issues we have had as a team are never one person's fault. During good times, as well as the bad, it is a collective effort between the coaches and the players.
