Jeff Saturday explains Colts' late-game clock management vs. Steelers: 'Didn't think time was of the essence'

+

Colts interim coach Jeff Saturday is defending his late-game clock management after Indianapolis' 24-17 loss to the Steelers on "Monday Night Football" in Week 12. Saturday's decision not to use a timeout during a three-play sequence that ran the clock from 1:35 remaining to 30 seconds to go came under fire after the defeat. Indianapolis had all three of its timeouts remaining, and many thought that the team could have benefited from one after Matt Ryan's 14-yard scramble set up a third-and-3 at the Steelers' 26.

The fourth-year linebacker had five total tackles, with three of those solo and one of those for loss, in New York’s 31-10 win over Chicago at Met Life Stadium.

2022 College Football Data Preview: Notre Dame VS Clemson

+

Going into the season, I feel like most folks’ eyes were trained heavily on the Ohio State and Clemson matchups. We got a solid, opening weekend showing from the Irish football squad against the Buckeyes. Then things happened. We found ourselves spiraling from week to week, just hoping for the best and losing sight of any long term expectations that may have existed. But now here we are coming off a solid win against Syracuse (who sort of took the Clemson Tigers to the wire in Week 8) and heading into a Week 10 showdown with the Tigers. The trip to upstate New York provided us with some nice treats going into the Halloween holiday. We’ve had a nice haul of quality candy (no Werther’s, candy corn or almond Joy allowed) to get us through the week. And now comes the stage when we’re a week out, plunging our hands into the dark depths of that plastic pumpkin and hoping we can come out with a clutch straggler (preferably a Twix).

Baltimore Ravens, QB Lamar Jackson fail to reach agreement on new contract

+

Lamar Jackson turned down the Baltimore Ravens' offers for a contract extension and is now betting on himself this season. On Friday morning, the Ravens announced they were unable to come to an agreement on a new deal by the quarterback's self-imposed deadline. "Despite best efforts on both sides, we were unable to reach a contract extension with Lamar Jackson," Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said in a statement. "We greatly appreciate how he has handled this process and we are excited about our team with Lamar leading the way. We will continue to work towards a long-term contract after the season, but for now we are looking forward to a successful 2022 campaign." EDITOR'S PICKS What's next for Lamar Jackson?

On Wednesday, he indicated that Friday would be the cutoff. "I'm confident that'll happen when it's time," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after practice Friday. "Lamar is going to be playing quarterback here for a long time. He and I talked about it yesterday like, 'Hey man, let's go be our best and go focus on football.' And that's what he's been doing all along. So I know nothing will change with that and we're just focused on Sunday." It was not expected that the sides would reach a deal before the start of the season. In March, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti acknowledged that Deshaun Watson's fully guaranteed $230 million deal with the Cleveland Browns would complicate future negotiations with quarterbacks. The gap in guaranteed money between Watson and the second-highest-paid quarterback, Kyler Murray of the Arizona Cardinals, is $40.5 million.

Vikings' Justin Jefferson: 'After this year I'll be the best receiver in the NFL'

+

Piecing together a top-five wide receiver ranking in today's NFL can be something of a fool's errand thanks to the sheer number of premier pass-catchers, but Justin Jefferson is confident projecting himself at the very top of the heap in the near future. "I'll say after this year I'll be the best receiver in the NFL," Jefferson told Complex’s Kameron Hay. "I definitely have to give it to Davante Adams as of now, him being so crazy and dynamic on the field. His route running is crazy, so I definitely have to give it to him right now, but I'm pretty sure after this year, it's going to be me."

NFL owners approve Rooney Rule applying to vacant QB coach positions

+

Several resolutions to the hiring process of NFL coaches have been passed at this year's Spring League Meeting, but perhaps the most impactful ruling applies to the hiring of quarterback coaches. Vacant QB coach positions are now subject to the Rooney Rule, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday. The ruling means NFL teams are now required to conduct outside interviews with a minority/female candidate for vacant QB coach positions. The change reflects the growing call for increased diversity within the league's coaching ranks. With many prospective head coaches beginning their careers in the QB room, the ruling is expected to help increase the hiring of minority head coaches in the future.
