Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on what he sees from Michigan State so far: "Extremely disciplined, hard-nosed, play to the echo of the whistle. Just resembles a lot more of the teams that I had seen '10, '11, '12, '13. Those were supremely talented teams the last few years. This team reminds me of some of [Mark Dantonio's] earlier teams."

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Tomlin's scouting report of several Chicago Bears: Mike Glennon: ‘Statuesque,' 'can make any throw' Zach Miller: ‘Plays like an oversized wideout' Jordan Howard: Can be 'power back, a one-cut runner' Tarik Cohen: ‘You can compare him to a Darren Sproles-type guy.' Akiem Hicks: ‘Force,' 'thrasher,' 'disruptive.'

Jets lead the way in 'race' for No. 1 pick

If the Jets are tanking, they're doing a great job so far. FPI gives Gang Green 40 percent odds to claim the top pick in April's draft. The 49ers are next with odds around half that, with the Colts and Bears close behind. Meanwhile, the Browns are a relative long shot, compared to recent seasons.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

For fans of 0-2 teams already looking toward 2018: the Jets are the current favorites to land the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, though there are plenty of bad teams lurking behind them that have a shot.

Olney -- Free agent stock watch: Jake Arrieta

Arrieta has rebuilt his value with his dominant second half, but it's still anyone's guess if the 31-year-old will get a monster deal or something closer to the $90 million to $100 million range

Is it time for Mitch Trubisky in Chicago?

The Bears paid Mike Glennon a lot of money to shore things up at QB, but his résumé looks like that of a below-average starter or top-end backup. Among 37 QBs with at least 20 starts since 2013, Glennon ranks near the bottom in several key categories.

White Sox bring Tigers closer to their level

The White Sox know how it feels to lose a no-hit bid on the final out of the game, having suffered such an experience more than any other MLB team. By ending Matthew Boyd's hopes with two outs in the ninth on Sunday, Chicago moved Detroit into second place on that not-so-desirable list.
