Cam Newton has a chance on Sunday to pass Jake Delhomme (53) for the most wins by a Carolina quarterback. He appears more excited about the "vibe" he has helped create in Charlotte. "It's just a blessing for me to be one of the intricate pieces that's been a part of the whole process."

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers quarterback is thinking outloud here about whether this Carolina defense is the best he's seen. He finally says yes. Adds communication is big in separating this unit from others.

Banged-up Packers will "have 13 players on the injury list; hopefully it stays at 13 after today," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "They'll work in the rehab group and hopefully they move to limited or full category."

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he needs to "be more complete." Mostly he said the key is simply to score touchdowns.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Jordan Matthews pushed back against criticism of the Bills' receivers Wednesday, saying, "I think you're going to [need to] get a little bit of a bigger sample size, if that makes sense. You guys study football. I don't think there's been any big, like, receiving games through the first two weeks of the season. And I watch, so I know that, for a fact. So I think you need to give it a little more time before you start saying, you know, what's what and who's who, if that makes sense.”

Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is not practicing today. He was limping when I saw him leave the locker room Sunday and he had his right ankle taped. The same for Monday. On a separate note, linebacker Devante Bond has returned to practice since suffering a sprained PCL in his knee last month.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Bucs running back Jacquizz Rodgers is practicing today despite his wife tweeting out that he had the flu against the Bears. The tweet has since been deleted. Interestingly, he told me just a little while ago that he has a cough and that it's not the flu. He looked fine out there today in drills and you can see he's in good spirits.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph practiced Wednesday after he left Thursday's game with a shoulder injury. He's hopeful he'll play Sunday vs. the Patriots. The Texans also got RB Alfred Blue (high ankle sprain) back. He's been out since the team's joint practice with the Saints.

Mike Smith was very pleased with rookie Kendell Beckwith stepping in for him and said he was even making the calls on defense towards the end of the game.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Sam Bradford said he was trying to figure out if he could move, protect himself the way he needs to in a game during his pregame workout before Vikings played the Steelers. Was hopeful he was going to be able to do that after resting knee on Saturday. Said knee didn't feel right on Sunday.
