Analysis: New QBs generally look like headliners stepping in

Sep. 23, 2019 2:27 AM EDT

Oh, the moans and groans in Nawlins. The consternation in Steeltown. The woe is me refrains in Carolina's Queen City. The joke's on me attitude in Jax. And the tabloid screams in the Big Apple. Maybe all of that dread and disgust will quiet down, at least for a week. Hey, folks, the new guys at quarterback did...

Sep. 22, 2019 11:01 PM EDT

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay's kicking woes cost the Buccaneers another game. Rookie Matt Gay's 34-yard field goal attempt sailed right wide as time expired Sunday, leaving the Bucs on the short end of a 32-31 loss to the New York Giants.

Sep. 22, 2019 9:35 PM EDT

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Daniel Jones is making the decision to bench Eli Manning look like a good one. At least through one game. The sixth overall pick in this year's NFL draft threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for two TDs, including the go-ahead score with 1:16 remaining as the New York...

Giants launch Daniel Jones era against wary Buccaneers

Sep. 19, 2019 7:31 PM EDT

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — No disrespect to Daniel Jones. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers feel the key to beating the New York Giants is slowing down Saquon Barkley, not necessarily exploiting the inexperience of a rookie quarterback who'll be making his first NFL start when the teams meet Sunday. "For us, we've got to...

Saints at Rams in rematch of disputed NFC title game

Sep. 14, 2019 12:06 PM EDT

Throw that flag. For those who have short memories — very short — the last time the Rams and Saints met was in the NFC championship game in the Big Easy. New Orleans was victimized by a blatant officiating non-call that led to a rules change allowing pass interference to be part of the video review...

Is Cam Newton running out of time as Carolina's quarterback?

Sep. 13, 2019 3:44 PM EDT

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton has lost his last eight starts, and it's becoming increasingly obvious the Carolina Panthers' hopes of turning him into a pocket passer are failing. That raises questions about the former No. 1 pick's long-term future in Carolina. Whether it's a matter of coaches not...

Bucs use goal-line stand to beat Panthers 20-14

Sep. 13, 2019 9:22 AM EDT

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — When Cam Newton left the shotgun and began creeping toward the line of scrimmage, Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves knew exactly what was coming. The Bucs sniffed out a fourth-and-1 play from the 2-yard line with Hargreaves shoving Christian McCaffrey out of bounds with 1:22...

Newton's favorite opponent, the Bucs, visit Thursday night

Sep. 11, 2019 5:59 PM EDT

Cam Newton enjoys facing the Buccaneers. The only thing is, this might not be the same Panthers quarterback who has thrown for 29 touchdowns against Tampa Bay. Newton was so-so in the opening loss to the Rams, and his minus-2 yards rushing were a career low. He did go 25 for 38 for 239 yards, but had no...
