Kevin Kolb hurt in Cardinals' OT loss to Bills

Arizona lost quarterback Kevin Kolb, then lost its eight-game home winning streak.

Kolb was injured with just over two minutes left in Sunday's game when he tried to fall forward and two Bills players landed on him. He lay on the field for several minutes as medical personnel attended to him, then gingerly walked off after a cart was waved off.

Kolb lost a tight battle to be Arizona's starter to open the season, but started four games after John Skelton sprained his right ankle in the opener against Seattle.

Skelton, active for the first time since his injury, replaced Kolb in Sunday's game.

In Baltimore, the Ravens had two costly injuries - to linebacker Ray Lewis and cornerback Lardarius Webb. Lewis, the Ravens' emotional leader, hurt his triceps in the 31-29 win over Dallas.

Webb banged his knee in a first-quarter collision with Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. Webb remained prone on the field for several minutes before being helped to the sideline.

The team originally labeled the injury a ``sprain,'' but after Baltimore's 31-29 victory, coach John Harbaugh painted a potentially darker picture.

``Lardarius Webb does not look good right now,'' Harbaugh said. ``It's a potential ACL. We've got a problem there. We don't know for sure, but that's what it looks like right now.''

Ravens safely Bernard Pollard added, ``That's what happens in this game. You hate to see a guy like that go down because he's worked his tail off. Our prayers are with him to get a speedy recovery, but the next man has to step up.''

Now in his fourth season, Webb has one interception, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery in six games this year.

Also in that game, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was removed with a left foot injury. He carried 14 times for 93 yards but did not get the ball after the 11-minute mark of the third period. The extent of the injury was not immediately known.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson ran for 79 yards but at times was limping on his sprained left ankle against Washington.

Redskins S Jordan Pugh left the fourth quarter twice with a head injury. The Redskins say he was cleared to return after the first injury, then was diagnosed with a concussion after the second one.

In Sunday night's game, Texans defensive end Tim Jamison left Sunday night's game against Green Bay with a right Achilles injury and the team said he would not return.

The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Jamison played in each of the Texans' first five games, backing up J.J. Watt. Jamison had nine tackles, including a sack, and a deflected pass this season.

Packers linebacker Nick Perry left in the second quarter with a knee injury and was out for the game. Perry was the Packers' fifth-leading tackler (28) and had two sacks through the first five games. Green Bay middle linebacker D.J. Smith limped off the field later in the second quarter with a right knee injury and also was out for the game.

Texans right guard Antoine Caldwell left before halftime with a concussion.

Packers running back Brandon Saine injured a knee playing special teams.

Earlier, the Jets lost two running backs in four plays.

Joe McKnight was hurt on a 61-yard run, three plays after Bilal Powell was lost with a shoulder injury. Both McKnight and Powell were scheduled to have MRI exams Monday.

San Francisco left tackle Joe Staley left with a concussion in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

In Cleveland, rookie running back Trent Richardson was hurt when he took a helmet to the side early in the game, but the Browns got their first win of the season anyway, 34-24 over the Bengals.

Richardson finished with 37 yards on 14 carries and spent most of the second half on the sideline. But Richardson's backup, Montario Hardesty, picked up the slack and rushed for 56 yards and scored his first touchdown in the NFL as the Browns (1-5) also snapped a 12-game losing streak inside the AFC North.

``I took a shot, but I'll be back,'' said Richardson. ``I'll be ready for next week.''

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
