Broncos QB Trevor Siemian admits he’s pressing, ‘out of sync’

Trevor Siemian isn’t making any excuses.

After a strong start to the season, the Broncos quarterback admitted he’s been slumping and took full responsibility for his poor performance in recent games.

“When things aren’t going well, you want to make a play, you want to do something — fit a ball in, you want to make sure you don’t miss a play — and that’s when bad things happen. For me I just kind of go back to feeling the flow of the game and not trying to do too much.”

Siemian lost his starting job after Week 8 against the Chiefs before regaining it again in Week 13 against the Dolphins. Amid numerous quarterback changes and the firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Denver has dropped eight straight after entering its bye week with a 3-1 record.

The Broncos (3-9) will look to snap their skid when they host the Jets (5-7) at 4:05 p.m. ET Sunday.

Detroit on Sunday lost its toughest remaining game, in Baltimore in Week 13, to fall to 6-6, four weeks before it finishes with Green Bay. Before then Detroit has favorable games at Tampa Bay, vs. Chicago and at Cincinnati.

The bottom line is nine wins aren’t going to get it done in the NFC. The Packers were not able to move up until the Lions, who won at Lambeau earlier this season, were in position to finish one game behind.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened his Saturday news conference by apologizing for lashing out at offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline last Sunday, saying it had been bothering him all week.panthers_045

Rams coach Sean McVay might be doing Jared Goff’s job for him, but he’s not cheating

Jared Goff has taken a dramatic step forward between his rookie season and Week 13 of his second year in the NFL. And some people think it’s because Sean McVay is too involved in making pre-snap reads through the helmet communication system from the sideline.

Still, this Jaguars team is rolling and Sunday could look a lot more like Gabbert’s time on “shitty teams” in the past than his recent success.

With Week 13 close to finished, the Cleveland Browns are still winless with the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants just behind with a couple wins each. The Browns are currently in line to pick first in April, one spot ahead of the Giants with the 49ers sitting in third.

It was Cleveland and San Francisco in the first two spots last year, with the Browns taking Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, and the 49ers sending their selection to Chicago. The Giants owned the 23rd pick.

Goff has just one interception over his last four games and now has 16 touchdowns to go with four picks on the season.

Thanksgiving is about sharing food with family and friends — and players are no different from the rest of us when it comes to celebrating. Of course hockey players love to eat. It turns out, some of them are not too shabby in the kitchen, either. ESPN identified some of the best amateur chefs in the NHL. Here, they share their go-to recipes.

They’ve put pretty much everything on their defense and their best runners, Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey. The formula is not broken, but eventually, the forward pass has to be better without Kelvin Benjamin. Greg Olsen returning to join Devin Funchess will be a nice boost.

With seven wins under first-year coach Sean McVay, the Rams have matched their best single-season win totals under previous coaches Jeff Fisher and Steve Spagnuolo.

Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy left Sunday’s 17-14 loss to the Redskins with a groin injury and did not return.

Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler suffered an elbow injury in the first half of the 23-7 win over the Bengals and did not return.

Dallas’ Dak Prescott threw a career-high three interceptions and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in his second straight loss without star running back Ezekiel Elliott, serving a six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence.

Jake Elliott’s injury wasn’t a factor for nearly a half because the NFL-leading Eagles couldn’t get in scoring position. They failed to get a first down on five straight first-half drives, starting with one at the Dallas 15 when Elliott missed a 34-yard attempt and soon after left the field.

Trailing 9-7 at halftime, Wentz led the Eagles on scoring drives of 75, 90 and 85 yards, the middle one boosted by Jay Ajayi’s 71-yard run against his hometown team in his second game since getting traded by Miami.

Packers can, will get a better Brett Hundley, starting against Lions

The Packers had no hope with Brett Hundley at quarterback in their first two games with Aaron Rodgers hurt. Luckily for them, they had a bye right after those two losses to regroup.

Green Bay is 4-3 going into Monday night’s matchup against the Lions at Lambeau Field, but it feels like the Packers’ season is already on the line with a must-win division game at home. But the Packers won’t be able to win many more games and stay in the playoff hunt unless Hundley is more effective and efficient while Rodgers is out.

Had that been Cardinals starter Carson Palmer or most other above-average QBs, the Seahawks would have had to sweat much more. Things became a whole lot easier once Russell Wilson pulled off a magic trick to help build an insurmountable lead.

Roseman, meanwhile, has gone from that hot seat to the catbird seat. He is my choice for midseason NFL Executive of the Year.

Trading up and drafting Wentz is the most visible move Roseman has made, but as with any winning GM, he has made many other key decisions to turn around the Eagles’ fortunes.

“When I was younger, we saw Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and when Reebok had a basketball side,” Fox said. “For those brands to be coming at me and talking to me about what they were going to do in terms of commercials, it was just a blessing. I grew up wearing all of their shoes and paying for them, and at the end of the day, they wanted to pay me to wear their shoes.”

The Miami Dolphins waived Rey Maualuga on Saturday after the veteran linebacker was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge earlier in the morning.

The team announced the move without comment on the legal situation.

Police and court records show Maualuga was arrested after an early-morning incident at a downtown Miami nightclub, allegedly involving a dispute over a bar bill. It was unclear if Maualuga had retained an attorney.steelers_004
