Danny Willett says his Ryder Cup has been tarnished by his brother Pete's insulting rant about Team USA fans - and he has been heckled already. "It's not been too bad with the fans," Danny said. "There's a few shouts out there but you can expect that. It's been pretty tricky for me to get back on and fully focus. I was disappointed in what he wrote and it put a bit of a downer on my first Ryder Cup."

I expect Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker to play tonight, but the Dolphins still have major injury issues. They will likely be without both of their starting outside linebackers (Jelani Jenkins and Koa Misi). The offensive line is a concern, too. Miami is expected to start a third string center, and Adam Gase told me he's not sure whether LT Branden Albert can play.

Here's the plan tonight for Vontaze Burfict: I'm told both Burfict and LB Vinny Rey will have helmets outfitted with radio transmitters. Burfict will play mostly on early downs. Rey will replace him in nickel. My understanding is only one headset is allowed on the field at a time so Burfict and Rey will not be allowed to be on the field together.

Key matchup to watch in the Wisconsin-Michigan showdown: the Badgers' secondary vs. the Wolverines' receivers. None of Wisconsin's starters in the secondary is over 5-foot-11, while Michigan can throw to Amara Darboh (6-2) and Jehu Chesson (6-3), not to mention 6-6 TE Jake Butt. Wisconsin's defense has been impossible to run against, so the passing game will be crucial for Michigan.

Last year, New York ranked 28th in effective field goal percentage, which is a field goal percentage that adjusts for the value of 3-point shots.
