Giants report card: Brian Daboll decisions turned game

Could the Giants have tried something else to better protect Jones, especially shading help to right tackle Evan Neal as he allowed three sacks to Demarcus Lawrence? More max-protection with running backs and tight ends, perhaps. The turning point was head coach Brian Daboll’s decision to burn a fourth-quarter timeout on defense to prepare for a fourth-and-4 and then, after the Cowboys completed a pass and were given a first down, not throwing the challenge flag before the next snap after Lamb was dropped by safety Dane Belton within inches one way or another of the line to go.

“There was some money left out there for me,” [Kayvon] Thibodeaux said. “I don’t think they did anything different [than expected]. They just executed at a higher level.”

Investigation regarding Tua Tagovailoa's return to play could take 1-2 weeks | ProFootballTalk

The NFL Players Association has exercised its prerogative to request an investigation as to the events that resulted in Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa re-entering Sunday’s game against the Bills, despite displaying gross motor instability after his helmet struck the ground.

The question then becomes whether the league and union will agree that the concussion protocol was, or wasn’t, properly followed. For occasions of gross motor instability, the player can be cleared to play only if the team physician and the UNC conclude that the instability did not have a neurological cause.

Bill Belichick: Nothing definitive on Mac Jones yet | ProFootballTalk

Reports on Sunday night indicated the Patriots believe quarterback Mac Jones suffered a high-ankle sprain in the 37-26 loss to the Ravens, but head coach Bill Belichick didn’t shed any light on that during a Monday morning press conference.

“Just quickly on Mac, really no update on him. We’ll go through the process and see where things are this morning, but nothing definitive at this point,” Belichick said. Followup questions about the Patriots’ thinking based on what they do know led to Belichick saying he is “not going to speculate wildly” about putting Jones on injured reserve or anything else.

NFL replacing Pro Bowl: Flag football, weeklong skills competitions |

The NFL announced Monday some long-expected changes to its all-star event, including changing the non-competitive Sunday football game to a flag football competition between teams from the AFC and NFC. The game, which will take place Feb. 5 — a week before Super Bowl LVII — is seeing its biggest overhaul after years of tweaks.

The league worked in the offseason to improve the Pro Bowl, talking with players and executives on how it can make the game and week more exciting. Flag football has been a key part of the league’s global expansion, making its debut at The World Games this past summer with an eye on eventually becoming an Olympic sport in years to come.
