    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 49ers are "still uncertain whether RB Tevin Coleman will play today against Arizona" due to air quality concerns.

    Coleman has a pre-existing heart condition that could be negatively affected by the poor air quality in the Bay Area.

    So, expect more carries for Raheem Mostert if Coleman doesn't play.

    Lions RB D'Andre Swift made his NFL debut today by dropping the game-winning pass while wide-open in the end-zone. He has nowhere to go but up from here.

    With 11:45 left in the game, the Cowboys could have tied the score with a 26 yard field goal. Instead they got 2 yards on 4th and 3 and went on to lose by that same score (20-17) and head coach Mike McCarthy is not making a good first impression in Dallas.

    Nah, McCarthy is fine - Dallas had an ultra conservative coach in Jason Garrett for far too long. The fan base won't mind taking some chances now and then.

    I don't think the issue is going for it with 11:45 left as much as why they did not get into field goal range again in that same 11:45.

    Agree. The questionable PI call didn't help, although I could see that one going either way.
