NFL Notes: London Games, Robbie Gould, Cowboys & Patriots

London Games

  • Adam Schefter reports that the NFL is discussing the possibility of moving the start time for London games from 9:30 a.m. ET to 1 p.m. ET in an effort to try to improve ratings for the games.
  • Schefter mentions that this would close a viewing window the NFL had created that extended the day and possibly detracted from the interest in other games.
  • This would also help limit oversaturation on a day the NFL already dominates.

Robbie Gould

Veteran K Robbie Gould said he turned down “a bunch of offers’’ before he agreed to sign with the Giants.

“I was in a great position because I could wait for the perfect opportunity to get into a situation where I knew I could win and possibly win a Super Bowl and find a place I could stay for a little bit of time,” Gould said, via the New York Post. “The biggest thing for me was I want to win a Super Bowl and play for a great organization and with the Giants everything fit that mold. So it was a really easy situation to say yes to.”

Cowboys

  • Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a strained groin.
  • However, George adds that Claiborne isn’t expected to return until after the Cowboys play the Vikings in Week 13.
  • Cowboys S Barry Church said this week that he expects to return from his fractured right forearm for their Week 13 game, but he will wear a cast on his forearm. (Brandon George)

Patriots

  • Mike Reiss points out that Patriots DE Jabaal Sheard was limited to playing just 16 snaps last week and noticeably struggled against the Seahawks. The Patriots have Sheard as a healthy scratch for today’s game.
  • According to Reiss, the Patriots will have another week to activate OL Sebastian Vollmer and OL Tre’ Jackson from the PUP list or they will be out for the season.
