|11/25/2015||Matt Ryan, Atl, QB|
|Ryan said his health is fine and not a reason for his horrible play.
Analysis: Ryan's numbers are similar to other years, but some high-profile mistakes have turned up the heat - especially with the Falcons losing four of their past five after a 5-0 start. "I'm 100 percent healthy," Ryan said, chuckling a bit. "I think I've said this five or six different times now, and hopefully this will be the last time I have to talk about it: I've worn a brace on my left knee since I was a senior in college."

Analysis: The Green Bay center left a 30-13 win over Minnesota on Sunday with an injured right ankle.

|11/25/2015||Chris Hogan, Buf, WR|
|Hogan had six catches for a season-high 95 yards against the Patriots on Monday.

|11/25/2015||Marcus Thigpen, Buf, WR|
|The Buffalo Bills have signed Thigpen.
Analysis: Thigpen, who doubles as a kickoff returner, was a free agent. He rejoins Buffalo after being cut by the team last month.

Groy had three starts in four games as a rookie last year in Chicago.

|11/25/2015||LeGarrette Blount, NE, RB|
|Blount carried 16 times for 56 yards on Monday.
Analysis: You should not start Blount next week against Denver, which will bottle him up and maybe even force him to fumble once or twice so beware.
|11/25/2015||Tom Brady, NE, QB|
|Brady was subpar Monday night.
Analysis: Brady was 20 of 39 for a season-worst 51.3 percentage with one TD, one horrible INT thrown into coverage and 277 yards. He'll try to bounce back on Sunday night against the powerful Broncos.
