Ravens offensive line on the rise with James Hurst in the middle

James Hurst prides himself on handling any job that’s thrown his way. “The situations that have happened with injury have been pretty unpredictable, but that’s part of it,” he said. “You have to be next man up. I know what a cliché that is, but truly, when a guy goes down, you’ve got to go in, and you can’t be a liability. The coaches need to know they can keep running their game plan.” (Baltimore Sun)

Trubisky said of his Monday Night Football performance: "It wasn't bad. I would grade myself average, below average. I'm pretty hard on myself." (Chicago Daily Herald)

Bears rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky kept composure on national stage

Chicago Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky answered an important question Monday night. No, the moment never got too big for him. Sure, Trubisky has plenty of corrections to make after the Bears' 20-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but the first-year quarterback didn’t wilt under the national spotlight. And the Chicago locker room took notice. (

Veteran Leaders Aiming to Keep Positive Mindset in UNC Locker Room, Despite Negative Outcomes

As the losses–and injury woes–continue to pile up for the UNC football team, the Tar Heels’ veteran leaders are doing everything they can to make sure the team keeps a positive mindset throughout the final five games. Head coach Larry Fedora said after Saturday’s loss to Virginia that it “kills him” because he hasn’t been able to get his guys over the hump so far in 2017. (

Michael Carter Breaks Out

Michael Carter's 157 rushing yards marked the most by a Tar Heel since Elijah Hood's 168 against Georgia Tech in 2016. They also were the most by a UNC freshman since Giovani Bernard finished with 165 against Duke in 2011. But Carter's performance couldn't snap the Tar Heels' three-game losing streak. Still, he said he and the team continues inching closer to doing so. (

Larry Fedora Post-Virginia Quotes

Larry Fedora: “Let me start off with congratulating Bronco (Mendenhall) and his team. A well coached team. They played extremely hard and played a very good football game. I’m proud of the effort that our guys are playing with. I told them that I’m proud of them. We’ve just got to find a way to get over the hump. Somebody has got to step up in situations and make a play." (Inside Carolina)

Turner's Take: Floundering

Once again, North Carolina found a way to lose on Saturday. The Tar Heels again had a second-half lead, again had opportunities to snatch what would have been their first win over a Power 5 team since November 5, 2016. But as injuries and inexperience put UNC behind the 8-ball, there was no room for error. And they made errors. UNC had the chance to win down the stretch, too. (Argyle Report)

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Virginia

One of the most controversial plays of the day involving the quarterback came with 1:10 left, when he appeared to be dragged down by the facemask on a crucial fourth down play in UVA territory.
