Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray suffered a non-contact knee injury on the third play during Monday Night Football.
Murray was in the middle of a scramble when his knee appeared to buckle. (I'm not going to post the video, but you can look for it if you want to see it.) Murray was carted off the field, surrounded by teammates, and quickly ruled questionable to return. Murray was later ruled out by the team in the second quarter with a knee injury.
Backup QB Colt McCoy replaced him.
Reports began to emerge throughout the game that Murray had torn his ACL. Murray will have an MRI on Tuesday to confirm.

The moment we've all been waiting for - we finally know who will be starting for the Washington Commanders going forward. Head coach Ron Rivera announced on Wednesday that quarterback Taylor Heinicke will start for the team in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.
Carson Wentz is still on injured reserve with a finger injury, but he is eligible to resume throwing. It's unclear whether Heinicke will remain the starter for the remainder of the season, or if it's just next week.
In my personal opinion, I think Heinicke has more than earned it. The offense plays better with him, and his record (3-1 as a starter) shows it. He'll get a gimme game against the Texans, but beating the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles was a huge momentum shift for the Commanders.

The Philadelphia Eagles are undefeated no more. Unfortunately, the Eagles played their worst game all season with three turnovers. While the game went back and forth for most of the duration, it wasn't as close as the score might suggest. The Eagles couldn't keep the Washington Commanders off the field (not something I thought I'd ever say), and it seemed like every time Philly seemed to get it together, they turned the ball over.
Neither quarterback impressed, but Washington QB Taylor Heinicke celebrated in style on the flight home. If this doesn't seal him keeping the starting job, I'm not sure what will.

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was the better QB during Thursday Night Football, but only if you point to the second half. After a shaky start, Jackson ended up going 27-of-38 passes for 238 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-22 win over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
And it's not a Lamar Jackson Game without a Lamar Jackson Run.

Are we closer than ever to seeing Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder the hell outta here?
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay told reporters at the owners' conference that he believes there is "merit" to remove him. ?
I'm not going to get into the logistics, but Snyder is a eyesore amongst the NFL (where there are many bad things happening, so that tells you a lot). It's certainly interesting to see another NFL owner publicly state those comments; it makes you think he's not alone in his thoughts. Irsay also said it may take about 24 votes to oust Snyder.
The Buffalo Bills started the season with a beautiful first drive right into the end zone. Quarterback Josh Allen threw a 26-yard pass to wide receiver Gabriel Davis for a touchdown. Allen was 5-for-5 with 58 yards on the drive.
A turnover fest broke out in the second quarter, with three straight turnovers. First, Allen "threw" an interception to receiver Isaiah McKenzie (who straight up dropped it). Then, running back James Cook fumbled the ball on his first carry shortly after. Finally, Rams QB Matthew Stafford gave it right back, throwing an interception to CB Dane Jackson. The Bills ended this turnover streak with a field goal to take a 10-0 lead over Los Angeles.
The game went into halftime tied 10-10 after a phenomenal catch from wide receiver Cooper Kupp. It's good. Trust me.
Following halftime, Buffalo appeared to make adjustments as they forced a Rams' three-and-out. A stiff arm and a redemption touchdown by McKenzie later, the Bills were up 17-10.
Buffalo came away with the win, beating the Rams 31-10.
New York Jets right tackle Mekhi Becton is likely out for the 2022 season, after suffering a knee injury during Monday's practice. The team is calling it a fractured knee cap, which sounds terribly painful (and terribly confusing as to why they weren't initially concerned yesterday when it occurred).
Becton was a first-round pick in 2020 and hasn't had much good luck since then. Becton missed the 2021 season after suffering a knee injury in the Jets' season opener.
The Carolina Panthers are the latest team to hop on the 'alternate helmet' train. The team unveiled matte black helmets, which they will pair with their alternate black uniforms, to be worn throughout the season.
The NFL recently tweaked their strict (and stupid) uniform rules, allowing teams to wear a second helmet along with alternate uniforms. Other teams will be wearing classic uniforms.
This particular uniform combo will be worn against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.
