Could trade provide graceful exit for Giants' Manning?

Dallas Cowboys: It's tough replacing one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, but that's just what Brett Maher is doing this season -- and doing it well. When the Cowboys cut Dan Bailey and his $3.4 million salary and brought in the $480,000-a-year Maher, no one was quite sure how it would turn out. But on the season, he's hit 15 of 16 field goals, missing only his first attempt of the year. On Sunday, in the Cowboys' 40-7 drubbing of Jacksonville, Maher hit field goals of 32, 46, 50 and 55 yards. He also connected on all four extra-point attempts. "Hats off to our kicker, Brett, for doing his job," defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence said after the game. "He's pretty nice." An even bigger compliment came from Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones. "We're really pleased with how he's kicking," Jones said. "He's kicking in form with how he kicked in preseason. It's not surprising." More »

Bills QB Peterman says he'll learn from interceptions

Buffalo Bills: Backup quarterback Nathan Peterman entered the Bills' Week 6 loss to Houston after rookie starter Josh Allen went out with an injury. He threw a touchdown pass to Zay Jones, but then the interception bug bit him again. He threw two, including one that became the game-winning pick-six for the Texans. His career has been defined by interceptions. He threw five in one half last season when he got the starting nod over Tyrod Taylor against the Chargers. In six career games, he has 79 pass attempts with nine interceptions and three touchdowns. "It's tough," Peterman said after the game. "You put everything you have into winning the game. It hurts for my teammates. Everybody out there for 60 minutes, giving it all they had, trying to come in here and help us win and didn't do it today. I'm going to learn from it and take it day-by-day." Head coach Sean McDermott clearly wasn't happy. "Well, we've got to have more respect for the football," McDermott said. "I felt he tried to force the football in those situations. You can't do that. You have to take what the defense gives you." More »
