The Vikings fell to 1-5 after losing to the Falcons on Sunday and Kirk Cousins there was another bad game. Eventually, he led several point drives during the trash to make his last numbers not look too bad, but his three early interceptions sealed the loss. It was his second game of the year with three picks and he now has ten in the league this year. Speaking to the media after the match, Bratovchedi admitted that his turnover problems could lead to a bench if he does not clear things up. “The reality is that if the pace at which I move, in terms of interceptions, if this continues, I will not finish the season. Will not do it, ”Cousin said candidly, about Courtney Cronin from ESPN.com (Twitter link).
Here is more from NFC North:
- Packers kicked Giorgio Tavecchio earlier this week, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (link to Twitter). There is no indication that there is a problem Mason Crosby, so it was probably just Green Bay doing some proper checking in case of injury problems with COVID-19. Tavecchio has kicked for the Raiders and Falcons in recent years and also spent time with the Los Angeles XFL Wildcats.
- Tavecchio isn’t the only one the Packers plan to develop. Green Bay will host the backback Alvin Jones as soon as it cleared the COVID-19 protocols, according to Rob Demowski of ESPN.com. Remarkably, Jones is the victorious brother of the returning Packers star Aaron Jones. Another UTEP product, the linebacker has spent the last few years with the Ravens, mostly in injury reserve and training team. He has yet to appear in the NFL regular season. “I am glad that he will get his opportunity and will have the opportunity to train,Aaron told the media. “I know he will do whatever it takes, and I hope he is on the team with me. I would be glad to have it. That would be a real joy.“
- The Bears improved to 5-1 with their victory over the Panthers on Sunday, and they did so without one of their coaches. Offensive line coach Juan Castillo is far from the team as he isolates himself due to close exposure to someone who is COVID-19 positive, tweeted Brad Briggs of the Chicago Tribune. Apparently Castillo is considered high risk and the positive thing he has been in contact with is someone who is far from the team, not a player.
