There are a lot of reasons why the Giants offense has struggled.

Since having surgery in January, Luck missed all of the team’s offseason workouts, all of training camp and the entire preseason before finally being cleared to practice Oct. 4. He did some light throwing that day and was told he could throw every other day.

Last week, Luck ramped up the rehab work. He was throwing passes of 35 to 40 yards with increased velocity and was scheduled to run the scout team as Indy (2-4) prepared for Monday night’s matchup at Tennessee.

Yet they are just one game behind Houston, Jacksonville and the Titans in the AFC South chase. All three teams are 3-3, and with five division games left on the schedule, fans were hoping a quick return would put Indy (2-4) in position to make the playoffs .

Now, everything’s on hold.

The offensive line has been terrible, there’s no run game to speak of, and injuries in the receiving corps have been catastrophic. But the Giants are also predictable, which has made them easier to defend.

Ben McAdoo handed over play-calling duties to Mike Sullivan, the offensive coordinator, and it was a smart call. Eli Manning didn’t have the most impressive day statistically, with 128 yards and one touchdown. But he had a consistent connection with tight end Evan Engram and didn’t turn the ball over once.

The past few days have been as close as you can get to a dumpster fire for the Giants. On Sunday, they lost their top three wideouts in Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall, and Sterling Shepard due to injuries. Beckham and Marshall are both out for the remainder of the season, while Shepard is day to day, leaving the team thin at the position.

All of this leaves the 0-5 Giants shorthanded going into Denver this week to face the NFL’s top defense. After their bye week the following week, they get to welcome the Seattle Seahawks to town.

Colts’ next chance to finish job comes against Jags

The Indianapolis Colts know what the problem is but have seemed powerless to do anything about it.

We’re excited about the next opportunity, Del Rio said. We’re just looking to bounce back and get a much-needed win.

The Raiders (2-4) find themselves trying to dig out of a deeper hole after the Los Angeles Chargers kicked a game-winning field goal for 17-16 victory, sending coach Jack Del Rio’s squad to its fourth straight defeat.

Bradford, who has a shot at returning on Monday, has completed 84.4 percent of his passes for 346 yards and three touchdowns. Neither of them has thrown an interception.

Dalvin Cook, the starting running back, was lost due to injury so the Vikings will go into the game with no 100-yard rushers this season.

The Bears are making a big change at quarterback, moving to Mitchell Trubisky for Monday’s game. Mike Glennon was the starter to begin the season, with 66.4 percent of his passes completed for 833 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions. Now they’re moving to Trubisky, and things should be interesting.

Below is all you need to know to watch the action on Monday as well as news, odds, predictions and more.

Said 49ers safety Eric Reid to TheMMQB.com: I did bring up in the meeting how this started with [Kaepernick], and we need to get the messaging straight surrounding him. They heard me, and they agreed.

With what was described at the time as a small fracture of his left collarbone in 2013, Rodgers missed seven weeks before returning for the season finale against Chicago.

Dan Quinn: Falcons focused on this year’s Pats, not Super Bowl rematch

Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn emphasized Wednesday that the showdown with the New England Patriots on Sunday night is the next game on the schedule and not a Super Bowl rematch.

From this point on, Bradford’s availability for Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers was in jeopardy. The Vikings listed him as a game-time decision for that game, but he was ultimately ruled out for Week 2. Backup quarterback Case Keenum started for Bradford, and the Vikings lost, 26-9.

Following the loss, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Bradford was day to day. The Vikings ruled him out once again for their Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Quinn said despite moving forward, the Super Bowl tape certainly has value leading into this week.

Yeah, for sure, it’s a big part,” Quinn said. Here’s why: When you face a team for a second time in less than a year, I’m not going to call it a division game, but you almost have more familiarity than you would when you don’t. So you go back to look how did they feature the players in their roles last year, and go back to look at some of the roles for this year.

The truth on the Martavis Bryant story, regardless of what the player is saying publicly, is that Bryant and his agent have expressed unhappiness with the way he’s being used in the offense and, some weeks ago, told the Steelers that Bryant would prefer to be traded if his current role is all they have in mind. Multiple sources say Bryant’s agent has spoken with Steelers management since the season began to express these sentiments, and that Bryant himself spoke with coaches during the week leading up to Pittsburgh’s Week 5 game to ask about being a bigger part of the offense.

Malcolm Butler is on the brink of his biggest year for the Patriots yet

Malcolm Butler has nothing to prove to Patriots fans. His game-saving interception in Super Bowl XLIX made him a household name throughout the Northeast. His ascendance from undrafted free agent to one of the league’s top coverage backs earned him respect across the league. If he hits the free-agent marketplace next spring, he’ll be one of the most coveted players available.

Some of the NFL’s biggest names will be playing out the final year of their contract in 2017. How they perform this year will go along way toward what kind of payday they can expect next year. SB Nation is taking a closer looks at the stakes for each player.

Ahahahahaha. I can’t stop laughing about this. I think it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen (if it turns out to be fake I’ll be devastated). I don’t know who these people are, but it doesn’t really matter. It’s the concept and execution that really gets me.

Because think about the things that had to happen for this thing to happen: Not only did two people have to go to a preseason NFL game, the most meaningless sporting events our country boasts (besides episodes of The Bachelor), they had to go to a Dolphins game. And then not only did they have to go to a Dolphins game, they had to go to a Dolphins game after the team signed Jay Cutler, the man with the saddest face in America. And not only did they have to go to a Dolphins game when Jay Cutler was in the building, they had to stay long enough for the man to get down on one knee and ask the woman, who was still at the Jay Cutler-laden Dolphins preseason game, to marry him.

It’s my complete inability to comprehend this proposal that makes me love it so much. Proposing at stadiums is so stupid that if you have to do it, at least do it in the most endearingly dumb way possible.

Damiere Byrd continued a strong night with his second touchdown of the game

The Titans get another turnover this time a Derek Anderson interception and we can definitely say they’re beating up on the Panthers at this point.

The stars of the first half were easily Derrick Henry 36 rushing yards and two touchdowns and Christian McCaffrey 33 rushing yards, 39 receiving yards, and one touchdown. It’s the 2015 Heisman race all over again.

Now the Texans have found a groove on offense. Alfred Blue got things rolling, and he didn’t quit all drive. He put up 31 yards on four carries and barreled into the end zone for the 16-yard touchdown.

Braxton Miller and DeAndre Hopkins also got in on the action, and Savage looked sharp, going 8-for-8.

Unfortunately, defensive tackle Vernon Butler, Carolina’s 2016 first-round pick, had to be helped off the field. This is a good sign, however:

Despite Houston being down two possessions, Watson was calm and poised on his next drive. He didn’t challenge the Panthers defense deep, but was steady hitting his receivers underneath and moving the chains.

In by far his best drive of the game, Watson methodically carved up the Panthers’ defense before finishing business himself, running for a 15-yard touchdown. You’d hardly tell he was a rookie based on this performance.

The Panthers are down to their third and fourth string with Cameron Artis-Payne in the backfield, as McCaffery ends his night with 33 yards on seven carries. Artis-Payne jumpstarted Carolina’s first drive of the second half with a 20-yard run. Soon after, Webb used his feet to keep the drive alive, getting a couple of first downs with well-timed scrambles.

Damiere Byrd continued a strong night with his second touchdown of the game, putting the Panthers up by 14.

The Panthers’ defense was on fire during the first series.

Doink! The Panthers had a chance to get on the board first, but Graham Gano’s 50-yard field goal attempt bounced off the upright.

Kelvin Benjamin looked smooth (and not heavy) on a 17-yard catch from Derek Anderson. We also got our first Christian McCaffrey sighting, but it was just a 2-yard gain.

The Panthers’ defense was on fire during the first series. Tom Savage was under pressure immediately, and Lamar Miller couldn’t find any room to run. Kawann Short sacked Savage for a big loss and Houston went three-and-out.

Pittsburgh hopes T.J. Watt can bring the same star power that his older brother, J.J., brought to the Texans. Well, he’s off to a good start with a sack on his first defensive drive in a Steelers uniform to force a Giants punt.

Oft-criticized Giants offensive tackle Ereck Flowers gave up the sack, but it really wasn’t his fault. The rest of the Steelers’ defensive line forced Johnson to run straight into Watt. Either way, guess who took notice:

Roberto Aguayo then missed the extra point try. That’s not a good way to get his second preseason started.

On the other side, rookie Jake Elliott is battling Randy Bullock for Cincinnati’s kicking job. They’re both doing ok for themselves, nailing 45- and 54-yard field goals in the first half, respectively.

Just a week after trading him to Buffalo, the Philadelphia Eagles will get the chance to reunite with former wideout Jordan Matthews. The Bills acquired the fourth-year receiver after trading away Sammy Watkins, and they’ve already gotten bad news. Matthews suffered a minor rib fracture in his first practice with the team and isn’t expected to play. Cornerback Ronald Darby, traded from the Bills to the Eagles in the same trade as Matthews, will make his Eagles debut, however.

Blaine Gabbert threw a touchdown pass with nine seconds remaining to Jeremy Ross

College football is still a week away, and that means Saturday belongs to the NFL preseason. While Week 1 of the exhibition season was marred by the absence of superstars, this weekend’s action holds the promise of seeing some of the league’s top players earn between 10-12 snaps before ceding ground to a smattering of undrafted free agents.

That’s not much, but it’s a start. The NFL season is fast approaching, and this weekend’s action could wind up being the deciding factor between a fringe player earning a roster spot and ascending to a starting role and winding up back on the free agent list. The fourth quarters of Saturday’s games will provide some familiar faces for college football fans and NFL diehards who can recite team rosters down to 53 places, but won’t be nearly as engaging for Cowboys fans hoping to see Dak Prescott for more than a cameo.

A handful of big games dot the day’s schedule. The Patriots will travel south to Houston to meet the Texans in a rematch of a hard-fought Divisional playoff game from earlier this year. Tom Brady and the starters are even supposed to make an appearance.

Blaine Gabbert threw a touchdown pass with nine seconds remaining to Jeremy Ross, but they couldn’t convert on the two point conversion, giving the Bears the victory.

Watson tried a couple of long throws to set up more points, but the Texans’ last first-half drive didn’t amount to anything.

In the final game of the evening, the rebuilding 49ers face the Chiefs, who are shaking off a turbulent offseason that included general manager John Dorsey surprisingly getting fired despite two straight playoff appearances. The other big story in K.C. is Patrick Mahomes, the first-round QB who could overtake Alex Smith if he has a strong preseason. Look for Mahomes to get plenty of snaps here as the Chiefs break him in.

Broncos vs. Bears 2017 live stream: Start time, TV channel, and how to watch online

The Denver Broncos are on the road for their first preseason game of 2017 and will face their former head coach John Fox and his new team, the Chicago Bears. The Broncos announced just days ago that Trevor Siemian will be the starter for their road trip to the Windy City.

I’m not saying we’re always right. The NFL knows more about what it’s looking for than we do. It’s just not easy to predict which seemingly random QB the NFL will decide is much better than college fans ever would’ve guessed.

For the 2018 draft, NFL media has already decided on its out-of-nowhere guy, almost a year ahead of schedule. For months now, Wyoming QB Josh Allen has been called a likely top-10 pick, ranking alongside former five-star Josh Rosen of UCLA and Rose Bowl winner Sam Darnold of USC, and ahead of big-number producers like Louisville’s Lamar Jackson, Washington State’s Luke Falk, and Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph.

A Yahoo! story calls Allen one of the big three, along with Rosen and Darnold. SB Nation’s first mock draft predicted him at No. 3. At one point, Bleacher Report had Allen at No. 3 in 2017, let alone 2018. Adam Schefter reported 12 months in advance that Allen’s earning No. 1 buzz.

There are specific rules about when a player can be placed on PUP and when he’s allowed to come off of it.

If a player has practiced during training camp he’s not eligible for PUP. Players like Luck and Hightower, who started training camp on the PUP, can be removed from the list at any time during the preseason. Once they are, they can get back on the practice field.

The player also has to be a dealing with an NFL-related injury to be placed on the PUP.

The Colts defense has given up 211 yards and yet another score with a Matt Prater field goal.

Rudock got the Lions within striking distance, thanks in part to to this catch and stiff arm from tight end Michael Roberts. A missed Prater field goal kept the Lions from extending their lead.

The Indianapolis defense looks outmatched. Detroit capped off a seven-play, 73-yard drive with another Rudock touchdown pass to Golladay.

We have a new pair of pugilists atop the leader board, and they don’t even play for a team. Two Titans fans got into it during the team’s scrimmage. I’m not sure why the guy in the Keep Calm shirt has Batman’s phone, but the t-shirted crusader bloodies the guy’s lip with a big right to the mouth after getting shoved.

More punches were landed in this dustup than any of the training camp fights on the field between players. The best part is the guy running away. It’s definitely going to be a big year in Tennessee.

Prescott finished the evening 7-of-8 passing with 106 yards, a touchdown, and a passer rating of 158.3.

It’s preseason, and the Colts defense looked pretty bad to start this one off, but the Cowboys should feel good about seeing Prescott handle them with ease.

The NFL decided to chill when it comes to penalties on celebrations during games. It didn’t decide to let things be a free-for-all, but one of the things players can do now is group celebrations.

It does not matter if it’s preseason. If you take a kick back 109 yards in any football game, you deserve praise. Deonte Thompson did that to close out the first half for the Bears against the Cardinals.

he pulled down a woman’s top during a St. Patrick’s Day parade

Let’s get the obvious option out of the way first. Colin Kaepernick is a better quarterback than Bortles and would likely jell in an offense that doesn’t ask him to do too much.

But Kaepernick’s free agency has little to do with his skills on the field. Teams have shied away from signing the quarterback after he kneeled during the national anthem throughout the 2016 season to protest of the oppression of people of color. Marrone, Tom Coughlin, and Shad Khan have stayed silent about Kaepernick, so it’s hard to know the franchise’s thoughts on the possibility of adding him.

Fans, as is the case with every NFL market to varying degrees, would be divided. There are at least a few including SB Nation’s Jaguars blog, Big Cat Country who think it would be a good idea:

After Kaepernick, the market for a free agent is thin. There’s Robert Griffin III, but it’s hard to confidently believe he’s a better option than Bortles or current backup Chad Henne.

The league also looked into another incident involving Elliott. In March of this year, he pulled down a woman’s top during a St. Patrick’s Day parade. The investigators reviewed video and interviewed the woman, who did not file a complaint. The letter sent to Elliott said your behavior during this event was inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for the woman.

Although the league did not discipline him for the incident, it said it suggests a pattern of poor judgment.

On July 16, Elliott was connected to an incident at a Dallas bar, though he was not named as a suspect and no police report was filed. It did not factor into Elliott’s suspension, either. Soon after, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that Elliott was still learning how to navigate fame.
