New England Patriots remain top of the NFL.com power rankings after their dominant 43-0 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday night.
There is, though, a new No.2 on the list with the Kansas City Chiefs leapfrogging the Los Angeles Rams on the list.
The New Orleans Saints were the biggest fallers of the week with a loss to the Rams compounded by an injury to Drew Brees which will likely keep the quarterback out for six weeks, and possibly more.
Brees, 40, has previously only missed one match in his 19-year NFL career.
Antonio Brown latest
According to reports, Britney Taylor, the woman who has accused Patriots wide receiver Brown of rape in a civil lawsuit last week, has completed talks with league investigators.
Brown has denied the allegations made against him and there is currently no criminal investigation into the accusations.
Cam Newton a doubt for week 3?
Carolina Panthers superstar quarterback Newton might be absent for their clash with the Arizona Cardinals.
The Panthers confirmed on their official website the 30-year-old was not at practice when the session opened on Tuesday morning.
It’s believe an aggravated foot injury now has him a doubt for the weekend’s game. If he were to miss out, backup Kyle Allen would likely start.
Newton has struggled so far this season as he returns from off-season shoulder surgery.
New York Giants bench Eli Manning
There will be a change of quarterback for the Giants after a 0-2 start to the new season.
Two-time Super Bowl winner Manning is now out with rookie Daniel Jones, no. 6 pick in the 2019 draft, starting in week three.
“Eli and I spoke this morning,” coach Pat Shurmur said Tuesday in a statement. “I told him that we are making a change and going with Daniel as the starter. I also talked to Daniel.
“Eli was obviously disappointed, as you would expect, but he said he would be what he has always been, a good teammate, and continue to prepare to help this team win games. Daniel understands the challenge at hand, and he will be ready to play on Sunday.”
Steelers trade for Dolphins star Minkah Fitzpatrick
Miami have lost another star with safety Fitzpatrick joining Laremy Tunstil and Kenny Stills on the list of players who have now quit the club this season.
The 22-year-old felt it was ‘time to move on’ following reported issues since the arrival of coach Brian Flores.
Fitzpatrick moves to Pittsburgh along with a 2020 fourth-round pick and a 2021 seventh-round pick, in exchange for a first- and fifth-round pick in 2020 and 2021 sixth-round pick.
