The Panthers have struggled with the pass rush during a 1-5 start. Perhaps the return of "Big Vern" against Arizona will help.

The Giants' release of PK Josh Brown accomplishes nothing but the deserved rejection of a domestic abuser. The most significant takeaway from this episode is that the NFL is a long way from effectively addressing the issue within its policies and purview. The primary question is unanswered: Can the NFL find a way to demonstrate -- not say it, but show it -- that domestic violence is intolerable?

Packers coach Mike McCarthy on Falcons WR Julio Jones: "His numbers are outrageous. He has the whole package – size, strength, speed. He beat you deep, on the back-shoulder throw, he can go up and high point the football. He's an accomplished route runner. He had a big day against us a few years ago right here at Lambeau."

Is Cam Newton really off to a worse start than last season? The stats from his first five starts look pretty similar. But he's no longer getting elite-level support from his defense, so his record (and thus the narrative) has shifted.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that CB Damarious Randall had surgery. "He will be out this week," McCarthy said. "That's about the extent of the injury report that I will get into."
