November 2015


Monday, Nov. 30
A tough season for Jimmy Graham is coming to an end. The Seattle Seahawks tight end fell awkwardly in the end zone early in the fourth quarter against the Pittsburgh Steelers as Russell Wilson threw a pass his direction. The ball fell incomplete, and Graham's right knee bent under his own weight. Graham remained down as trainers looked at his knee on the field, and he later was carted off to the locker room with an air cast on his leg. After the game the Seahawks announced that Graham tore his patellar tendon and is out for the season. That's generally a devastating knee injury for NFL players, worse than an ACL tear. New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz is a recent example of a torn patellar tendon: Due to that and other lower body injuries Cruz hasn't played this season. After coming over in a trade from the New Orleans Saints, Graham has had a relatively quiet season by his standards — with only two touchdowns and one game with more than 83 yards receiving. He had four grabs for 75 yards against the Steelers before leaving the game. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

The Patriots-Broncos showdown Sunday night is missing some star power.
Jay Gruden's Washington Redskins have not won two games in a row all season. Kirk Cousins connected with DeSean Jackson for a 63-yard touchdown pass and scored on a fourth-down quarterback sneak, Washington intercepted Eli Manning three times, and the Redskins withstood the latest miraculous catch by Odell Beckham Jr. to hold on and beat the New York Giants 20-14 Sunday, pulling into a tie for first place.
Nov 29 (Infostrada Sports) - Results from the NFL games on Sunday (home team in CAPS) Oakland 24 TENNESSEE 21 KANSAS CITY 30 Buffalo 22 INDIANAPOLIS 25 Tampa Bay 12 WASHINGTON 20 NY Giants 14 HOUSTON 24 New Orleans 6 Minnesota 20 ATLANTA 10 CINCINNATI 31 St. Louis 7 San Diego 31 JACKSONVILLE 25 NY JETS 38 Miami 20
If you're Eli Manning and you're having a miserable day, there's only one solution. Throw it up to Odell Beckham Jr. Anywhere on the field. Somewhere in his zip code. Chances are, he'll make the grab. This one from Sunday against the Washington Redskins might not be  THE CATCH that made Beckham an international superstar. But it's darned close. Check out Beckham going horizontal and making a diving, left-handed grab in the end zone to help bring the New York Giants back in a game they trailed throughout. How many players in the league can make this play? Two? Three? Maybe? It required him to (1) burn the corner, (2) time up his dive, (3) catch the ball with his off hand, (4) not let it hit the ground and (5) stay inbounds. The catch against the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 still reigns as Beckham's best to date, but Sunday's grab is no slouch at all. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
