The NFL announced 3 possible German cities to host games in 2022

Via Ian Rapoport of NFL MediaThis announcement was initially expected to go live until Thursday, but this morning the NFL unveiled the 3 finalist German cities to host 1 regular season game as early as 2022. The select list includes Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

Thus, after an initial period in which the NFL received expressions of interest from various cities, the latter three were invited to the “bid phase” of the process, and will now participate in more in-depth conversations about hosting games. in Germany.

“Regular season games are a key part of continuing to develop our German fan base by creating more enthusiasm for the sport (…). The great interest we have received from German cities underscores what a fantastic opportunity this is for a host, ranging from significant economic benefits and global exposure to the possibility of becoming a hub for growing fan engagement, and the grassroots activities of the NFL, ”said Brett Gosper, NFL director for Europe and the UK.

“In addition to identifying a stadium that is fully capable of handling the logistics of an NFL game, we want to work with a host consortium that includes local and regional government, stadium ownership, local stakeholders, and potential business partners. We want this to be a long-term partnership, “concluded Gosper.

For several years the NFL has seen a considerable rise in the growth of German fans, where the number now hovers around 19 million fans. The weekly television audience in the partners ProSieben and DAZN it has grown more than 20% annually since 2017. Additionally, this country is a leading market outside of North America for NFL Shop sales and sales of the Madden NFL video game. Is it a good decision to bring a regular season game to Germany as early as 2022?

Trey Lance would be out for several weeks

Like last year, injuries continue to haunt San Francisco. This time it’s QB Trey Lance, who in the 49ers’ loss to the Cardinals last Sunday suffered a knee injury that could cause him to miss several weeks of play.

On Monday, HC Kyle Shanahan pointed out that Lance suffered a knee sprain, which could keep him out even until Week 7, when San Francisco hosts Indianapolis on Sunday Night Football. It should be noted that this coming weekend, the 49ers, along with the Falcons, Saints and Jets, will be the first four teams to have their bye week.

This injury suffered by Lance is somewhat uncertain; He himself did not realize that he had been injured until the end of the match, and he does not know in which play it happened. However, considering that he was sacked twice and carried the ball 16 times, it is not surprising that he was injured.

However, this absence may not weigh as much considering that Shanahan mentioned that QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who is recovering from a calf injury, will start again when he is healthy, and it is expected that against the Colts he will be available again. . How much would the 49ers miss Trey Lance in the long run?

Rich Bisaccia, Raiders’ new interim HC

Due to situations of racism, homophobia and misogyny, the last days within the Raiders organization have been somewhat busy, however, it all culminated last night, when Jon Gruden submitted his resignation as head coach of Las Vegas. In a corresponding move, the team announced via social media that Rich Bisaccia, who was serving as special teams coordinator, will serve as the new interim head coach.

Bisaccia served as Gruden’s special teams coordinator at Tampa Bay from 2002 to 2008 and remained with the Buccaneers in that position for two more years after Gruden’s departure. He then coached the Chargers special teams for two seasons and the Cowboys special teams for another five to finally once again join the Gruden staff in 2018 with the Raiders.

Thus, in an atypical way, Bisaccia gets his first job as HC within the NFL. A little controversial decision considering that the current defensive coordinator of the Raiders, Gus Bradley, was head coach of the Jaguars from 2013 to 2016, however, in the end they opted for Bisaccia. How will you play in front of Las Vegas for the rest of the 2021 NFL Season?

Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney, and more Giants injuries

The news could not be worse for the Giants, who not only lost to the Cowboys last weekend, but also practically lost to midfielder, and knowing that in Week 6 they will play the Rams, the outlook is not encouraging.

In the first instance, QB Daniel Jones suffered a concussion in the game against Dallas, and it is still unknown if he will be able to overcome the protocols imposed by the NFL to play against Los Angeles. For his part, RB Saquon Barkley underwent various examinations that revealed that he has a sprained ankle, so it is likely that he will not arrive on time to Week 6. However, HC Joe Judge, said this Monday that he Barkley’s was “a sigh of relief” as his ankle mishap was expected to be much worse.

The third player added to this list is WR Kenny Golladay. Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, it was reported that Golladay is also expected to miss this coming week’s match due to a hyperextended knee. Finally, to continue making things worse, the last player on the list is WR Kadarius Toney who suffered an ankle injury, and although it is expected that this will not end his season, it is expected that he will not participate in the duel against the Rams.

Thus, the injuries of Jones, Barkley, Golladay and Toney, join those of WR Sterling Sherphard and Darius Slayton, who did not see action in Week 5 against Dallas due to both suffering from hamstring discomfort. What could we expect from this depleted offense next Sunday?

Lavonte David would not play at TNF Week 6

Last Sunday the Buccaneers defeated the Dolphins 17-45, however, they lost one of their best men. LB Lavonte David had to leave the match against Miami prematurely after suffering an injury, and as reported this Monday by Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, David suffered a sprained ankle that is expected to take him off the field at least on Thursday Night Football in Week 6 against the Eagles; after that, it will be considered “week by week”.

David suffered this mishap in the first half of the previous Sunday and was eventually ruled out for the rest of the game. Initial X-rays were negative for any fracture, but later an MRI revealed the sprain, which usually takes 3-4 weeks to heal. However, it’s a good sign that Tampa Bay hasn’t placed him on the Injured Reserve yet.

This would certainly be a brutal loss on the Buccaners’ defense as Davis, 31, is one of their pillars. The Nebraska alumnus came to Tampa Bay as a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and since then he has only missed 7 total games. This 2021, so far, he registers 32 tackles, 2 passes defended, 1 sack and 2 hits from QB. How will those led by Bruce Arians handle this absence?

Laremy Tunsil, in plans to play the rest of 2021 with an injury

In more NFL news, via Ian Rapoport from NFL MediaTexans left tackle Laremy Tunsil suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament in one of his thumbs, eventually needing surgery. However, Tunsil plans to postpone it and will continue to play as the season progresses.

This, without a doubt, is a somewhat peculiar decision since Tunsil’s performance on the pitch could be greatly affected by causing this injury. The Ole Miss alumnus was involved in just 44% of Houston’s offensive snaps in Sunday’s loss to New England, yet since joining the Texans two seasons ago, he has only missed two games in total.

Houston acquired Tunsil from Miami in the 2019 offseason in a trade that included two first-round picks, and subsequently signed a 3-season contract extension in April 2020. At 27 years old, he is one of the top offensive tackles in the NFL, and one of the best players on a very limited Texans roster so losing him would be extremely catastrophic. How should the team handle this situation?
