Marcus Peters has had himself a good afternoon against the Titans. First, he intercepted Marcus Mariota in the first half.
Minnesota forward Reggie Lynch was suspended indefinitely in relation to an investigation into an alleged sexual assault that occurred in April 2016. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Lynch has been under investigation since October. (He was previously arrested and investigated for a separate alleged sexual assault in 2016, but charges were dropped.)

The Buffalo quarterback was trying to get rid of the ball when he was sacked by Jacksonville defensive end Dante Fowler. Taylor’s head hit the turf hard, and he remained on the ground.
Edmonds repeatedly shows an ability to make short and wide elusive maneuvers, keeping a low center of gravity and firing upfield with vision and top-end speed. He has flashed versatility as a third-down running back, and his hip fluidity and body control should translate well to a role as a pass-catcher in the NFL, an area in which he’ll likely have immediate NFL value.
