Following their blowout victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott considers their upcoming tilt against the Washington Redskins as a crucial game, saying a win over their division rivals is “absolutely mandatory”.

“We need to. I think it’s absolutely mandatory that we do,”Elliott said, according to the Star-Telegram. “That’s our focus this week is going into this game, having great communication and starting fast, putting points on the board.”

Elliott knows that stringing together back-to-back wins is important especially after their big win over Jacksonville.

Jacksonville Jaguars newly acquired tackle Ereck Flowers, who infamously flopped for his former team the New York Giants, believes that the Jags will present a “better fit” for him than the Giants presented.

“Great opportunities, great team and I’m happy to be here,” Flowers said,according to the Florida Times-Union. “Definitely a fresh start for me. I like it here, man. I think this will be a better fit. They have a great locker room, great guys. I’m grateful to be here.”

While the Giants gave up on Flowers, despite his high draft status, the Jags are hopeful Flowers can contribute.

“Make no mistake about it, if we feel someone can help us or making a change is better for us, then we will do that,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “That is everywhere. It is hard when the whole team is not playing well.”

Texans’ Bill O’Brien Calls for Jadeveon Clowney to Limit Penalties

Published

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is calling on Jadeveon Clowney to clean up the penalties he is getting flagged for this season, and balance the aggressiveness that he brings to the field out with a bit more control.

Clowney has been flagged 8 times during 6 games and has notched 13 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery thus far this season.

“Guys that play like he does – he plays the game in a really attacking way, and so people are going to use their cadence against him and he’s just got to be really focused on that” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Then, the taunting call, like somebody asked me if I’m going to – yeah, I’ll talk to him about it, but I’m not going to go down the road of what. I think he just was just kind of messing around with the guy, but you can’t do that. You can’t do that, and that’s what they called and we’ll make sure that he knows not to do that anymore.”
