The list is now one. DeMarco Murray is the only running back in the history of the NFL to start a season with seven straight games of over 100 yards rushing.

10/18 Report: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch almost didn't get on team bus after hearing of Percy Harvin trade

10/18 Rams will go with 'hot hand' backfield
Few things frustrate fantasy owners more than a team deploying a running back-by-committee approach. The Rams confirmed Friday that's exactly what they want to do.

"Most places that I've been that have really good running games, they... [Read More]

10/17 Redskins want to give more touches to WR Pierre Garcon
Pierre Garcon is seeing a predictable drop in targets and catches after the Redskins added wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts during the offseason.

As such, the man who gained more than 1,350 yards last year has been left w... [Read More]
10/17 Lions news: WR Calvin Johnson needs a 'miracle'; TE Eric Ebron doubtful; RB Reggie Bush probable
Calvin Johnson has turned in miraculous plays with regularity during his career. Now it will take a miracle for him just to play Sunday.

10/17 Titans media expect QB Charlie Whitehurst to start again Sunday

The Vikings are coming off an embarrassing 17-3 loss in which they gained 212 total yards and committed three turnovers.

His supposed timeshare mate, Matt Asiata, got the ball only three times, including two carries that resulted in -5 yards. It was clear wh... [Read More]
