Somehow, he made the playoffs in each of his first five seasons and failed to win over the fan base. This is mainly because he couldn’t help them win a playoff game, partly because he got himself hurt making a tackle off an interception late in his best season and partly because the past year and a quarter has reminded Bengals fans of what the franchise felt like before Dalton and A.J. Green got there. Dalton was lousy in his first three games of this season, brilliant in the fourth, and seems headed for basically the same year he usually has. Which is to say, an unfulfilling one. Backup AJ McCarron was deemed valuable enough by the franchise that they didn’t seek opportunities to trade him this summer with one year left on his deal, but he’s no threat to Dalton’s job security anytime soon.

I’m just trying to win any way possible, Newton said. So you’ve (even) seen a little splash of me blocking. If you ask me to block, I’m willing to block, catch — wink, wink — all the above. I’m just trying to be whatever this team needs me to be.
The Lions are hopeful that rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis will return after missing two games with a concussion. But they have a number of other injury concerns, including starting offensive linemen T.J. Lang (back) and Rick Wagner (ankle, shoulder), wide receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (shoulder). Some of the Panthers’ injury concerns include Benjamin (knee), center Ryan Kalil (neck), defensive end Mario Addison (knee), linebacker Thomas Davis (rib) and safety Kurt Coleman (knee).
