      Brock Osweiler completed 22 passes with Peyton Manning watching from the sideline. That's tied for the most completions in a first half for any QB this season.

      But the Broncos stalled in the red zone every time and had to settle for 4 FGs.

      Sound familiar... ?

        League: Players' crime rates down 39 percent

        Player arrests are down significantly this year, but the NFL has had difficulty gaining cooperation during investigations into player misconduct, an internal league report obtained by espnW showed.

        A year after high-profile conduct-related cases sent the NFL reeling, a letter to team owners from the chairman of the league's new personal conduct committee, formed on Dec. 10, 2014, as part of an overhaul of the personal conduct policy, details the challenges the league faces in implementing new provisions.

        The NFL is leading the way on character issues, making a difference in how domestic violence and sexual assault are perceived in the culture at large, a report from committee chairman and Arizona Cardinals president Mike Bidwill says. Yet an ongoing challenge for the conduct committee in the past year has been the NFL's own investigation into potential code of conduct violations.

        "The committee is cognizant that, as a private employer, the league is taking on a challenge most other employers do not assume," the letter reads.

        The good news for the league is that there have been fewer cases to look into. In the past year, overall crime rates for NFL players are down by 39 percent, Bidwill reports, in the wake of ongoing training on the subjects of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and drunken driving.

        According to the report: "Between 2007 and 2014, the league averaged approximately 70 arrest incidents annually for players, 20 for violent and 50 for non-violent conduct. Since Jan. 1, 2015, there have been 11 arrests for violent offenses and 28 for nonviolent offenses, a 44 percent decrease in total arrests from the historic average, and a 39 percent decrease in total arrests as compared to the same period in 2014."

        Last year the league created a unit to oversee investigations, led by former Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives director Todd Jones and former prosecutor Lisa Friel, who were hired in the wake of Ray Rice's suspension for punching his then-fiancée in an elevator. The league was greatly criticized for not getting a copy of the elevator video, especially when TMZ was able to acquire it.

        "The league is constrained by the fact that it is not a law enforcement agency and lacks subpoena power or other authority to secure an interview or other physical evidence without cooperation," the committee tells owners. "Often alleged perpetrators and victims are not willing to be interviewed if a case is pending in the criminal justice system."

        The league has had difficulty gaining the cooperation of witnesses and alleged victims in some cases, as well as law enforcement. There have been cases closed by the NFL because of a lack of evidence, but the league retains the ability to reopen cases if new evidence is uncovered or if a witness comes forward with additional information.

        "There's no question in my mind that the league gets a much fuller picture of these incidents than a year ago," Friel said. "Although we don't have subpoena power we're still able to get a lot of evidence.

        "I think we will have a much better idea with a few more years of data, but that's a significant decrease. A 39 percent decrease is really significant, and I think that's a result of all the education we have done, and that education has been reinforced by the clubs."
        In 2016 Brock Osweiler was rated last (32nd) among all QBs (>400 attempts) by ProFootballFocus and ranked 33rd/34 QBs (>200 attempts) by Football Outsiders.

          Bridgewater’s failure to make big plays a concern in Minnesota

          Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has thrown just three touchdown passes in Minnesota’s last six games, and that’s a growing concern for those who watch Bridgewater closely.

          Bridgewater’s nine touchdown passes this year are by far the fewest in the NFL among quarterbacks who have started every game, and his six completions of 40 or more yards are tied for the fewest among quarterbacks who have started every game. (A lot of quarterbacks who haven’t started every game are ahead of Bridgewater in both statistical categories, too.)

          Accuracy on downfield throws has been an issue for Bridgewater, who doesn’t have a strong arm and struggles to find receivers deep. On ESPN’s NFL Matchup this week, Merril Hoge showed tape of Bridgewater missing an open Mike Wallace for what should have been a touchdown pass, and Hoge noted that it was a play that had been designed perfectly for Wallace to get open downfield — it just wasn’t executed properly by Bridgewater...

                        If that is true, that is complete crap! He should have been tossed out of the game and suspended the rest of the season.

                          Based on everything said today, still would be a major upset if Odell Beckham Jr's one-game suspension is overturned.
