Fromm flops in 1st start, benched in Giants' loss to Eagles
Jake Fromm got a pep talk before his first NFL start from the ineffective New York Giants quarterback he replaced in the lineup. Fromm got an early hook and gave coach Joe Judge little choice but to bench him in the third quarter with a debut that seemed to get worse with each drive. Fromm went 6 of 17 for 25 yards and one interception.news.yahoo.com
With Glennon now concussed, Giants' issues at QB worsen
Not only is there no clarity on when starter Daniel Jones — who missed Sunday’s 20-9 loss to Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins with a neck injury — can return, but now his backup may be looking at an extended absence as well. Mike Glennon was diagnosed postgame with a concussion, the hardest hit on a day where the Giants took many in Miami. “Look, I don’t know if you guys saw my high school quarterback tape, but I’m going to put it out there, emergency,” Giants safety Logan Ryan said.news.yahoo.com

(AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack)JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Quarterback Mike Glennon is getting another start for the Jacksonville Jaguars even though Gardner Minshew is fully healthy. Coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday he’s sticking with Glennon at Minnesota (5-6) on Sunday. It probably helped that Glennon was solid in his first start since Week 4 of the 2017 season. Glennon didn’t have a turnover — the first time since the season opener Jacksonville played a clean game — and wasn’t sacked. “There’s no doubt that we are going to try to win every single game that we play,” Marrone said.
The Latest: Home teams now 65-65-1 in this pandemic season
That means that going into tonight’s Saints-Buccaneers showdown, home teams are 65-65-1 so far this season. That homefield advantage has largely been erased with sparse crowds or no fans at games because of the coronavirus pandemic. Las Vegas though has taken control on its first two drives of the second half. Neither had started an NFL game, but both have been in the league much longer than DiNucci. The Tennessee Titans already lost left tackle Taylor Lewan for the season, and now they are without left guard Rodger Saffold.
