Washington Times: Jason Garrett under fire for Cowboys' late-game choices
In prime time, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett didn't have his best showing.After a 28-24 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Garrett was heavily criticized for his team's late-game decision making, choosing to run the ball with Ezekiel Elliott inside the red zone instead of riding Dak Prescott's hot hand.
With under five minutes left, down four, the Cowboys began a drive at their-own 26-yard line -- and moved the ball effortlessly down the field. Prescott found Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Jason Witten to get to Minnesota' 11-yard line with 1:57 left.
Washington Times: NFL draft order: Redskins benefit during bye as other bad teams win
Week 10 was a topsy-turvy one in the NFL, with the likes of the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints taking losses and some of the league's poorer teams finding ways to win.Perhaps the most surprising thing of all is the Miami Dolphins' two-game winning streak. What once was a team destined for the No. 1 overall draft pick next April might not even crack the top five by season's end.
In fact, the Washington Redskins have a little more "breathing room" in the draft order race now that the Dolphins upset the Colts, the New York Jets beat the New York Giants and the Atlanta Falcons toppled the Saints.
Washington Times: Matthew Stafford could miss multiple games with back injury
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will miss Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears with a back injury, which could cost him multiple games.According to ESPN, Stafford has fractured bones in his back and doctors consider him week-to-week. One source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Stafford could miss up to three weeks, as well.
That's significant for the Redskins because Washington plays Detroit on Nov. 24 at FedEx Field.
Backup Jeff Driskel will start Sunday's game in Chicago.
Stafford's injury caused him to snap his steak of 136 consecutive starts -- the sixth-longest in the NFL.

College Experience: Senior | Age: 22?
Height / Weight: 6-2 / 219 lbs
Projected Draft Status: 6th or 7th Round
NFL Comparison: Jalen TolliverJaylen Smith was 3-star prospect from Pascagoula, Mississippi. He received offers from Ole Miss, Cincinnati, and Nebraska but chose Louisville because of their fast paced spread offense and because he knew he would get opportunities early in his career.

Fansided: Games the Redskins should keep an eye on during their Week 10 bye
During their bye week, every team in the NFL is keeping an eye on their competition. Even the Washington Redskins (1-8) will be doing that. Yes, the team is out of contention for a playoff spot, but they are in contention for something else.The No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Currently, the team is slotted in at the No. 2 overall pick. And for a ready on what the team might do with that selection, check out our own Ian Cummings' latest mock draft.

Hogs Haven: Hogs Haven 2020 NFL Draft Coverage: LSU Preview
As part of Hogs Haven's pre-draft coverage, I am going to preview one team per week throughout the college football season, and it doesn't get any bigger than when #2 Alabama hosts #1 ranked LSU this weekend.LSU is primarily known for producing NFL-ready defensive backs, but since they are recruiting among the best in the nation, they always seem to have draft prospects playing at positions all over the field.
Somewhat strangely, they only had three players drafted in 2019 after averaging seven from 2013-2018.
Since 2012, only Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson have produced more than LSU's nine first round draft picks (tied with Florida and FSU).

ESPN.com: Sources: Redskins choose not to pay Trent Williams' $5.1M salary
After placing offensive tackle Trent Williams on the non-football injury list, the Washington Redskins have elected to not pay him any of his remaining $5.1 million base salary for the 2019 season, league sources tell ESPN.This is a voluntary decision, within Washington's rights, but not how other teams have operated.
