Good morning folks ,
it’s only been a few days since the 49ers played last, but it feels like a
lifetime, and the journey onward seems to lack the proverbial light at the end
of the tunnel. For the third straight week, the 49ers will not be playing on
Sunday,but opposed to the previous two, they’ve got the week off completely.
While it obviously makes the week less interesting, the upside is that the
perpetually injured roster will be allowed some extra time to heal up - in fact,
the 49ers are expected to have a completely healthy roster for the first time
this season following the bye.Tonight’s TNF game is a fairly solid one, although
the nostalgia factor carries much of the weight. The Seahawks and Packers are
two teams, perhaps the best examples of which Youth

, that can salvage any game at any time for a
stunning comeback victory. They’ve certainly both broken our hearts in the very
recent past with unbelievable fourth quarter heroics, and, famously, they’ve
done it to each other. Since 2012, the teams have played six times, splitting
the record with one blowout each, an overtime victory in the Seahawks favor in
the 2015 NFC Championship Game, and, of course, 2012’s infamous “Fail Mary”
decision which gifted the upstart Seahawks a controversial last-second victory
and brought the replacement referee situation to the absolute forefront of NFL
conversations.Currently Womens

, the Packers are 4-4-1, and the Seahawks
are 4-5 - a far cry from their recent successes, but dangerous teams
nevertheless. Both teams are looking to mount late season campaigns to catch on
as wildcard teams in the NFC playoffs, and this game may have playoff
implications, assuming that the likely wildcard-bound 6-3 Panthers don’t suffer
an implosion of epic proportions. Despite the mediocre records, this is
definitely a game to watch - especially the final minutes, barring a total
blowout leading into the fourth. As a 49er fan, however, I hope both teams
somehow manage to lose this game, and their collective stock portfolios all

York Jets have some much-needed help for their banged-up receiving group.They
signed free-agent wide receiver Rishard Matthews, who was released by Tennessee
last month after requesting the move because he felt he was being underused. He
had three catches for 11 yards in three games.The Jets were short-handed at
receiver because Quincy Enunwa ,
who has a team-leading 22 catches, is out a few weeks with a sprained ankle.
Terrelle Pryor was also released last Saturday with an injury settlement because
of a groin tear.To make room for Matthews on the roster Tuesday, New York placed
safety Doug Middleton on injured reserve after he tore a pectoral muscle Sunday
in the Jets' game against Minnesota.The 29-year-old Matthews signed a one-year
contract extension with the Titans in August after leading them with 1,740 yards
receiving and 13 touchdowns combined over the past two seasons. He missed
organized team activities, minicamp in June, training camp and Tennessee's first
three preseason games with an undisclosed injury before being activated from the
physically unable to perform list before the regular season.But he didn't like
how he was being used in new coordinator Matt LaFleur's offense and asked to be
released or traded. Tennessee granted his request by cutting him when it
couldn't deal him.He has 228 catches for 3,147 yards and 21 touchdowns in
six-plus seasons.Matthews was a seventh-round pick by Miami out of Nevada, where
his quarterback was Colin Kaepernick. He spent his first four NFL seasons with
the Dolphins before signing a three-year deal with Tennessee in 2016.Matthews,
who comes from a military family, stayed in the tunnel during the playing of the
national anthem during some games last season. He stood on the sideline for the
final preseason game this summer and did the same during the three games he was
with Tennessee. The Jets have had no players display any protests the past two
seasons Womens

together with their arms interlocked.Middleton started a career-high four games
this season, making 27 tackles along with three passes defensed.It's another
tough break for Middleton, who tore a pectoral last summer during training camp
and missed the regular season. He went home to North Carolina to rehabilitate
the injury and used the time to earn his master's degree in public
administration from Appalachian State.He was playing in place of the injured
Marcus Maye, who is sidelined with a broken thumb. The Jets are short-handed at
the safety spot with Jamal Adams and Terrence Brooks the only healthy players at
the position.Rontez Miles remains on the physically unable to perform list after
injuring a knee in the offseason. New York also has Brandon Bryant on the
practice squad.AP Pro Football Writer Teresa M. Walker in Nashville, Tennessee,
