Tebow still the starter despite Detroit disaster
Question of the Day
ENGLEWOOD, COLO. — Tim Tebow wasn’t sacked Monday.
“For this week, yes,” Fox said.
Tebow said he doesn’t feel as though he’s on a week-to-week basis but that he’s not one to fret about the future anyway.
“It’s just take it one day at a time, consistently trying to get better and not focusing too far in the future,” Tebow said. “Today’s the day I’ve got to improve, and that’s kind of the focus.”
“I think at the end of the day, we’ve got to see if he can improve and get better in the passing game,” Fox said.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks tweaked a hamstring on the next-to-last series of Sunday’s win over Miami, and his status for this week’s game against New England is uncertain.
Polamalu’s safety play violated NFL rule
Polamalu slid after Tom Brady’s fumble in the final moments of the game and knocked it into the end zone for a safety, making the final score 25-17 for the Steelers.
When asked about the play after the game, Polamalu said, “Whatever is going to get me in trouble, I’m saying the opposite.”
Eagles blast Cowboys behind Vick and McCoy
PHILADELPHIA — Michael Vick threw two touchdown passes, LeSean McCoy had a career-best 185 yards rushing and two scores and the Philadelphia Eagles routed the Dallas Cowboys 34-7 Sunday night. The Eagles improved to 13-0 after a bye under coach Andy Reid and snapped a five-game losing streak at Lincoln Financial Field that dated to last season.
AROUND THE LEAGUE
• CARDINALS: Arizona quarterback Kevin Kolb had his right foot in a walking boot Monday to protect a turf toe injury suffered during Sunday’s loss at Baltimore, and said he had “no idea” whether he would be able to play this week against St. Louis.
If Kolb can’t go, second-year pro John Skelton probably would get the start. Skelton started four games late last season.
• RAIDERS: Oakland signed cornerback Lito Sheppard. Sheppard, a former Pro Bowler, spent time in training camp with the Raiders and played in the final exhibition game before being cut.
• BROWNS: Cleveland running back Montario Hardesty has a torn calf muscle and is expected to miss some games. The second-year back started Sunday because Peyton Hillis missed his second straight game with a hamstring injury.
