A 25-year-old Massachusetts man has been charged in connection with a car crash that injured five people, including New England Patriots rookie linebacker Harvey Langi and his wife, Cassidy.
Elliott also helped out through the air. His 72 receiving yards all came on this single beautiful touchdown play.
It’s a simple screen pass, and Elliott finds a lane thanks to a well-timed block from Martin and a little help from receiver Brice Butler. Then, he’s gone:
Dez Bryant and Witten were both able to pull off some big plays against the 49ers. Bryant finished with seven catches for 63 yards and a touchdown, and Witten had four catches for 54 yards and this incredible one-handed touchdown catch. Prescott finished with 234 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 134.
The Steelers have won two straight since their home dud Oct. 8 against the Jaguars. Since throwing five interceptions in that loss, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown three touchdown passes with just one pick in wins over the Chiefs and Bengals. He’ll face a Lions defense ranked 11th against the pass and tied for third with nine interceptions.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off his own rough outing, tossing three interceptions in a 52-38 loss Oct. q5 to the Saints. He has faced the Steelers just once, and it didn’t go well. Stafford went 19 of 46 for 362 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 37-27 loss in 2013.
Tyler Kroft, TE, Cincinnati Bengals (10.7 percent): Finding a tight end isn’t easy, but with players such as Rob Gronkowski, Evan Engram, Kyle Rudolph, Hunter Henry and others set to go on bye over the next two weeks, a lot of teams will need a spot starter. Kroft, essentially stepping in for Tyler Eifert, has 14 catches in his past three games and three touchdowns to go with it. He’s a usable tight end the next two weeks or for someone who might have been relying upon a player such as Charles Clay in that spot (or who has an upcoming bye to account for).
