Thursday night football may have offered little in the way of drama, but at least there was plenty of entertainment in Atlanta’s 43-28 win over Tampa Bay. Matt Ryan connected on four touchdowns and 344 yards. Jameis Winston answered with three touchdowns and 261 yards before leaving the game early due to a knee injury. Julio Jones (eight catches, 111 yards, one touchdown) and Mike Evans (11 catches, 150 yards, two touchdowns) also showed why they’re two of the top receivers in the league. Unfortunately for Evans, his game ended prematurely as he entered concussion protocol.
“Each one of them has a got plays, and we’ll see how that rolls,” coach Andy Reid said. “Charcandrick is going to get most of them, obviously, and we’ll see how he holds up.’’

“It’s bad timing because he’s a Derrick Johnson Authentic Womens Jersey pretty good little player,’’ Reid said.
West led the Chiefs in rushing last season with 634 yards. He had some big games last year, including 97 yards against the Detroit Lions and 76 yards against the Baltimore Ravens.
West until last week’s game hadn’t played as much this season because Ware was getting most of the work. But he replaced the injured Ware in the Derrick Thomas Authentic Womens Jersey second half of last week’s game against the Indianapolis Colts and rushed for 52 yards on 14 carries.
Sankey has been working overtime this week with running backs coach Eric Bieniemy to learn the plays.
“I’m ready for whatever, however many plays they want me to play,’’ he said.
He might get more snaps as a runner than as a pass receiver or blocker. The running game is easier to learn in such a compressed period than the pass routes and protections.
