Norman was asking for $16 million per year after last season and the Panthers' weren't interested in paying.
Cincinnati Bengals (2-2): Despite the mediocre start to the season, the Bengals are giving up only 20.5 points per game.
"If I was playing I've had taken the shot", Rivera said Monday.
Offensively, the Falcons are averaging 38.0 points and 478.8 total yards (354.2 in passing and 124.5 in rushing) per game against the opposing teams. They generally use either a composite ranking to get their list, or they have someone assigned to watch every game before they make their list. While Pittsburgh has yet to play a team with a below-average DVOA through four games, six of its next eight opponents are now below average (although New England won't be by the time they play the Steelers). The longest distance for a first down in National Football League history is 4th and 63 by the New England Patriots in 1971.
GOING THE DISTANCE: The Jacksonville Jaguars headed across the Atlantic Ocean to get their first victory of the season.
If they can spread the ball around to the third and fourth receivers and not force the ball into the tight coverage that the talented Bronco's corners will force then they will have success and be able to stay in this game.
Overall, This Denver Broncos team is very strong in all three elements of the game and will handle the Falcons at home and head into an easy stretch of their schedule. The Raiders won as a 3.5-point underdog at Baltimore last week, and can improve to 4-1 SU and ATS on the season with a win at home over the San Diego Chargers this Sunday. San Francisco got hosed by the refs to some extent but they didn't do themselves any favors by being unable to stop the run. But we have enough information on Ryan, in his ninth season, to know how this story likely ends. Luck and the Colts are off to a 1-3 start after going 8-8 past year. Newton's first pass of the game was tipped and intercepted by the 49er defense.
Look out, Browns. The Panthers will challenge for the No. 1 pick in next year's draft. "We thought we had a good plan coming in".
Carson Palmer was having a bad year before he was injured, defense struggling as well.
Spanked a wounded Patriots team, can play well at times.
Detroit Lions (1-3): The Lions managed only 263 yards against the previously win-less Bears on Sunday. This week we have a new number 1 team!
28 - New York Jets (1-3) - Ryan Fitzpatrick followed up his 6 interception performance in Week 3 with three more this Sunday. The 49ers have lost three straight after opening the season with a shutout win over the Rams. Marvin Jones Jr. still looks good though.
The Lions have a 4 to 1 turnover ratio, which is pretty impressive until you realize it's that they have made four turnovers and gotten only one. They'll be in the mix in the AFC North.
32 - Cleveland Browns (0-4) - The Browns have still found a way to lose games they should win despite the emergences of Terrelle Pryor and Isaiah Crowell as solid offensive weapons. "One or two more losses and they really should think about getting rid of Jim Caldwell early".
