John McMullen: Eagles' revamped defense leaving a lot to be desired so far

The Eagles defense talked a good game all week. They knew all about Sean McVay and what he was about. They understood the pre-snap motion and the misdirection that was coming from the Rams coach.

John McMullen: False positive tests are a real threat to the NFL this season

The NFL got a dry run it wasn’t counting on over the weekend when irregularities in COVID-19 testing popped up all over around the league. Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane told reporters nearly one-third of the league, “10 or 11” teams, were hit with potential false positives.
