The clock is ticking on the Vikings

Every time Sam Bradford drops back to pass, it's one one-thousand, two one-thousand -- a ticking clock until he gets hit. And thus, the Vikings' season is a season in jeopardy.

Asked about Ryan Shazier calling the defense 'garbage,' Steelers DE Cam Heyward said he could think of better words, cited 'piss-poor technique' in tackling the Patriots. "You have to have some pride when you're out there," he added.

Falcons left tackle tackle Jake Matthews looking forward to facing cousin Clay Matthews on Sunday at the Georgia Dome. "I'm excited," Matthews said. "It's a pretty surreal experience. Playing against family, you're playing against your blood, especially the positions we play. We're 1 on 1 against each other for most of the game."

New England's Bill Belichick isn't the only NFL coach who isn't a big fan of the Microsoft tablet called the Surface being used on the sideline. You seldom will find Panthers coach Ron Rivera using one. "Unless there's something I really need to see, I'm not going to look at them. I trying to stay engaged in the game as much as I can to what's going on. If there's something I really need to see I'll look at it on the tablet. It's interesting. I think there are a lot of unintended consequences that come with having those tablets. The paper, take a picture, you get it immediately. You don't have to worry about turning it on, scan through it or anything like that. And again, eventually, it's coming. I don't know. I think sometimes we're making it a lot more complicated than the game really is. It's a very simple game, and I think we outsmart ourselves sometimes.''

Fairley grabbed running back Spencer Ware and tossed him to the ground after a play fake, squandering New Orleans' chance to force a potential punt on third-and-8 while down by just three points. "Those mistakes are the ones that we need to see and be able to correct," Payton said while listing "things that are keeping us from winning.

Another tough break for Jets QB Geno Smith, whose 2015 season was ruined by the IK Enemkpali punch. Smith probably has played his last game as a Jet. He will be a free agent and the recovery from ACL surgery probably will go through May/June.
