Cary Williams critical of Chip Kelly after Eagles' win
The Philadelphia Eagles are 3-0 on the season, running teams out the building in the second half of games, but apparently, Cary Williams believes the Eagles do too much running. The veteran Eagles cornerback was salty after DeSean Jackson torched him for an 81-yard touchdown. Despite his team showing grit in another come from behind victory, Williams wasn’t interested in talking about all the great things the team did. Instead, the malcontent decided to bash Chip Kelly and his weekly practice routine. “I was just trying to conserve as much energy during the week so I can be as effective as I can be on Sunday’s,” Williams said afterwards. “It was just such a dog fight. It didn’t help that I wasn’t healthy through the week and it didn’t help that I had a dog fight before the week and then I had a dog fight during the game. It’s just tough, man. We have to start taking care of our guys, taking care of our players, doing the right thing from there. “I didn’t p...

Jaguars bench Chad Henne for Blake Bortles
Blake Bortles is finally getting his chance. Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley has seen enough of Chad Henne. After seeing his 0-2 Jaguars trail 30-0 at the half to the Indianapolis Colts, Bradley made his move benching Henne in favor of 2014 3rd overall pick Blake Bortles. Bortles played the entire 2nd half completing 14/24 passes for 233 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Jacksonville lost the game 44-17. Afterwards, Bradley announced that Bortles will get his first career start next week when the Jaguars take on the Chargers. Jaguars HC Gus Bradley announced QB Blake Bortles will start next week. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 21, 2014 The Jaguars had been adamant all training camp and pre-season long that Bortles would ride the bench for the duration of his rookie season. Clearly, Gus Bradley’s patience ran thin, and Borltes will take over after just 3 games. This just goes to show you that no plan is ever set in stone. The post Jacksonville Jagaurs: ...

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer told reporters following Sunday’s game that QB Matt Cassel has “several” fractured bones in his foot. Zimmer added that first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater is ready to start for the team now that Cassel is out.

Cheap shot on Nick Foles leads to Eagles-Redskins fight
Tied at 27 early in the fourth quarter, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw an ill-timed interception that was returned deep into their territory by the Washington Redskins. The interception was later overturned, but that’s not the story here. Taking exception to a late hit on Foles, who remained down on the play, the Eagles went blow to blow in a fight with the division-rival Redskins. When the dust settled, Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker and offensive tackle Trent Williams were disqualified from the game. Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jason Peters was also ejected. Here is where it all started. Photo: SB Nation The post Fight Breaks out in Eagles-Redskins Game appeared first on Sportsnaut.com.

Report: Vikings don't see Adrian Peterson in their future
The Minnesota Vikings are reportedly ready to cut ties with running back Adrian Peterson following his indictment on a felony-abuse charge in Texas. The Vikings placed Peterson on the exempt/commissioner’s permission list Wednesday, and it appears they’ve already looking ahead to their next move. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, citing league sources, the team does not “foresee Peterson in their future.” But that news could come as a shock to Peterson, who “is in denial” about his short-and long-term future with the team, a team source told Morternson. According to multiple sources, Peterson “really doesn’t get it” and several league sources said the running back “has not come to grips with the prospect that his 2014 season has all but officially ended and that his future in the NFL is uncertain,” per Mortenson. Mortenson added that regardless of how his legal case plays out, the league will “severely” discipline the star.Filed under: NFL, Top Stories

Report: Ray Rice to argue elevator footage was edited
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Ray Rice will argue that the TMZ released video was edited when the former Baltimore Ravens running back makes his appeal of his indefinite suspension. Legal sources told Schefter that the TMZ tape of Rice hitting his then-fiancee was a cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed version of the events that took place in the Atlantic City casino elevator. Rice’s side is expected to argue that the NFL suspended the former Baltimore Ravens running back indefinitely off an edited videotape that was not the extended version. Robert Mueller, who has been appointed by the NFL to investigate the league’s handling of the Rice case, also is expected to have access to the contents of the full elevator security video, not just the edited TMZ version, according to sources. The Ravens released Rice on Sept. 8, hours after TMZ released the video of him punching Janay Palmer, who was knocked unconscious when her head hit a railing inside the elevator. Shortly after Rice’s releas

WATCH: Arizona completes Hail Mary to beat Cal
Arizona WR Austin Hill capped off a momentous comeback and delivered the best play of the year in the 2014 college football season thus far. After trailing 31-13 heading into the fourth quarter, it looked bleak for the Wildcats, even in front of their home crowd. But they never gave up. They scored 36 points in the fourth quarter, and after Cal missed a field goal late in the game, they received the ball on their 30-yard line with just 52 seconds remaining. And after an offensive pass interference penalty negated a 41-yard pass play, it looked like it was all but over...

Spurrier after win: 'We are not a very good team'
Most college football fans and analysts expected South Carolina, coming off of a huge win over highly-ranked Georgia, to have no trouble taking care of Vanderbilt, which has struggled greatly this season under new head coach Derek Mason. But the Commodores raced out to a 14-0 lead on the road and gave the Gamecocks trouble all night. South Carolina eventually gained control of the game, but it’s fair to say that it did not turn in a dominating performance – the Gamecocks won by a final score of 48-34. Head coach Steve Spurrier, predictably, was not pleased with his team’s performance. He called it “one of the worst” wins of his career, adding that he is not coaching “a very good team.” Steve Spurrier: “It’s one of the worst (wins) I have ever had, no question.” — Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) September 21, 2014 Steve Spurrier: “It’s embarrassing but we are who we are. We are not a very good team, but we are 3-1 somehow.” — Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) September 21, 2014 So
