Aaron Donald is going to play with fractured ribs this week..

The man is a BEAST! Go Rams!

Donald just has busted rib cartilage; I did that a few weeks ago following a youtube yoga class, so I am working through the same and am just as cool.

Great job in the pickem. I wouldn't bet against that Rams D.

Justin Fields also had some rib issues and wasn't the same QB last night. Maybe the Jets won't be so hasty to ditch Darnold and instead will hire a head coach who can de-Gase him.

NFL teams playing with adversity (Rams, Browns, Washington) have done very well (Washington exceeding expectations in defeat).

I checked with Ray Hudson and he confirmed that DeVonta Smith is magisterial.

There are several HOF QBs who looked bad in their first opportunities.
