Miami coach Adam Gase said he sees "a good amount" of the Patriots defense in the Lions defense. Said it takes time for all those scheme things to come together when you're installing a new system.

The Lions now know what quarterback they'll be facing: Brock Osweiler. With Miami ruling out Ryan Tannehill on Wednesday, Detroit can now focus its sole attention on Osweiler instead of prepping to face two different QBs. From my story today on both quarterbacks, here's what Osweiler has done against Matt Patricia defenses in the past: "Osweiler is 1-2 against Lions coach Matt Patricia in his career, with a 56 percent completion rate, two touchdowns and three interceptions. He has never completed more than 60 percent of his passes against a Patricia defense and hit for more than 225 yards in one of three games, a 30-24 win over New England on Nov. 29, 2015, when he completed 23 of 42 passes for 270 yards, a touchdown and an interception."

Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton, who has missed the past two games, returned to practice Wednesday to test his injured hamstring. I asked Hilton if he could play at less than 100 percent and he said his "less (than 100 percent) is better than a lot of people.” The Colts have missed Hilton, as they have 13 drops over the past three games, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Cam Newton says the Eagles (3-3) are ‘'better'' than they were last year when they won the Super Bowl.

Jets practice report (early version): This is one banged-up team, especially at cornerback and wide receiver. Not spotted on the field: CB Trumaine Johnson (quad), CB Buster Skrine (concussion) and WR Terrelle Pryor (groin). And, of course, WR Quincy Enunwa (ankle) and S Marcus Maye (thumb) are out multiple games. Good news: WR Charone Peake (hamstring) returned to practice. RB Eli McGuire (foot), on injured reserve, also returned. McGuire (pictured) can't be activated until Week 9.

The Cowboys will remain in the Washington D.C. area after Sunday's game to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The Cowboys have done a few of these field trips with Jason Garrett as coach, visiting the 9/11 Memorial a few years ago and spending time at NASA before a preseason game in Houston. “I think we're all striving to be our best and I think that's what you try to do as a coaching staff, always try to help everyone on your team be the best that they can be,” Garrett said. “There's so many different inspirational examples that we have. Many of them in sports. Many of them in football. But so many outside of sports. So there are so many different ways you try to have this message be in front of your team on a daily basis. Again, this is a unique experience for us to be able to go up there. The schedule worked out well and There's so many amazing things about our country that are commemorated in Washington and this is the one we wanted to see and I think everybody is excited about the opportunity.”

Deshaun Watson said on Wednesday that he feels better than he did a week ago while dealing with a chest injury. “I'm cleared to practice,” he said. “I'm cleared to do everything. So I'm good.” Watson said he didn't play with any extra padding on Sunday against the Bills and that his injury didn't affect much of his game other than playing “a little conservative as far as running the ball. Outside of that, it didn't really bother me,” Watson said. “I didn't worry about the injury or anything during the Cowboys game because I didn't know what was going on -- no one did -- and then last week I was fine and I was cleared to play and I was healthy.”

Steelers OC Randy Fichtner: "I don't know if there are any limitations to James (Conner's) game right now."
