Cardinals

  • Darren Urban writes that D.J. Humphries solid game at left tackle could open the possibility of him playing left tackle moving forward.

Eagles

Giants

  • Jordan Raanan of ESPN writes that the Giants must re-sign impending free agent DE Jason Pierre-Paul before it’s too late.
  • Raanan mentions that it would be “dangerous and silly” to allow a pass-rusher in the middle of his prime to test the free agent market if they’re open to keeping him long term.
  • Pierre-Paul said after Sunday’s game that he would “love” to re-sign with the Giants.
