November 2019


The New York Giants placed long snapper Zak DeOssie on injured reserve, the team announced Saturday. The Giants promoted Colin Holba from the practice squad to take DeOssie's roster spot ahead of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers in East Rutherford, N.J. DeOssie, who is nursing wrist and knee injuries, was responsible for a bad snap that led to a 42-yard missed field goal by Aldrick Rosas in New York's 19-14 setback against Chicago on Sunday. "I think in the Jets game (on Nov. 10), he got banged up a little bit," Giants coach Pat Shurmur said on Friday.

Windy Weather Oakland at Kansas City (4:25 PM ET): Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs host the Raiders as double-digit favorites in their second matchup against one another this season. degree temperatures and clear skies won't be an issue but 20 MPH winds may be.

Here are the injury report designations for NFL teams playing on Sunday during Week 13. New York Jets (4-7) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-11) Tennessee Titans (6-5) at Indianapolis Colts (6-5) Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) at Miami Dolphins (2-9) Green Bay Packers (8-3) at New York Giants (2-9) Cleveland Browns (5-6) at Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5) Washington Redskins (2-9) at Carolina Panthers (5-6) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars (4-7) San Francisco 49ers (10-1) at Baltimore Ravens (9-2) Los Angeles Rams (6-5) at Arizona Cardinals (3-7-1) Los Angeles Chargers (4-7) at Denver Broncos (3-8) Oakland Raiders (6-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (7-4) New England Patriots (10-1) at Houston Texans...

Since then, the defense has been worth -11.4 points per game and they now sit 20th by EPA and 22nd by DVOA on the season. The Giants Offense hasn't been anything to write home about but look for a better game from Saquon Barkley against one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers & Co. get a mouth-watering matchup.

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers because of a concussion. Minus Tate, the Giants likely will rely more heavily on backup wide receivers Cody Latimer and Sterling Shepard. Latimer has 15 catches for 180 yards and one touchdown this season, while Shepard has 30 catches for 282 yards and a score despite missing six games due to injury.

He should continue to benefit from having a QB in Nick Foles who throws to the slot frequently and faces a funnel Bucs defense that checks in first against the run and 25th versus the pass in DVOA. No team has allowed more fantasy points to the slot (where Westbrook has aligned 86 percent of the time) this season (and over the last month) than Tampa Bay. Green Bay Packers @ New York Giants Start in DFS: Davante Adams ($31), Saquon Barkley ($30) Adams is a bit of a risk given his toe injury may not fully heal until the offseason, but he claims he's feeling much better now and continues to be targeted as heavily as any receiver in the league.

The New York Giants are expected to place long snapper Zak DeOssie on injured reserve, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported. DeOssie, who is nursing wrist and knee injuries, was responsible for a bad snap that led to a 42-yard missed field goal by Aldrick Rosas in New York's 19-14 setback against Chicago on Sunday. The 35-year-old DeOssie, who is in the final year of his contract, has played in 199 career games with the Giants since being selected by the team in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.

For the Bears, only losing once in the last four games and downing the Detroit Lions 24-20 on Thursday unofficially qualifies as a by-definition positive for a stumbling team that the league and NFC North had all but left for dead a few weeks ago. The Bears won three of four to start this season, but that somehow felt more impressive, if only because the third of those wins was a throttling what has proved to be a very good Minnesota team - still the Bears' only 2019 win over a team .500 or above. Last week quarterback Mitch Trubisky was blunt in saying that their play in defeating the New York Giants was nowhere near good enough.

But the Bears' 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving at Ford Field felt different to those who played and coached in it. The Bears didn't just win; for the first time since September, they legitimately felt good about how they won a game. "The celebration today afterwards in Club Dub we had going brought back a lot of memories," coach Matt Nagy said.
