With the Andrew Luck retirement dominating
the NFL discussion for the past three days Charles Woodson Jersey , it may be easy to forget that a new episode of airs every Tuesday night. It does, with the fourth episode of the 2019 season debuting tonight.Now that the Antonio Brown helmet fiasco has ended and his feet have regrown their skin, there will be less natural interest in the show than there was a week ago, especially in the Schadenfreude City, where the folks residing along the Three Rivers generated triple the national average rating for the third episode.This week, the big news is old news — the Thursday night debacle in Winnipeg, where the Raiders hosted the Packers on a shortened field that Willie Brown Jersey , in the one-minute teaser trailer, Oakland coach Jon Gruden calls “Arena Football.”There’s a chance Arena Football would generate higher ratings than tonight. Last week, the audience sunk by 12.5 percent, even though AB was still the A topic. This week, unless sprinkles in some footage of Luck being peppered with boos and otherwise covers the unexpected trials and tribulations of the team the Raiders play in Week Four of the regular season, it will be a challenge to generate much/any interest. Buffalo's quarterback competition is now down to two after the Bills traded veteran AJ McCarron to the Oakland Raiders.The Bills received a fifth-round pick for McCarron.Buffalo also has released wide receiver Corey Coleman, a 2016 first-round draft pick by Cleveland whom the Bills acquired last month.The trade leaves second-year pro Nathan Peterman and first-round pick Josh Allen vying for the starting quarterback job in Buffalo. Peterman had a solid preseason for Buffalo Fred Biletnikoff Jersey , posting the best numbers of the group, while Allen has shown flashes and a strong arm after being drafted seventh overall in April.McCarron was initially considered the front-runner to land the starting job after signing a two-year contract in March, but struggled with inconsistent play. He also suffered a right shoulder injury in Buffalo's second preseason game against Cleveland, which hindered his pursuit of the starting job.McCarron returned to lead the Bills to a late comeback victory at Chicago on Thursday night, though his performance was spotty.The Bills chose not to hold onto Coleman, who has been a disappointment since the Browns made him the 15th overall selection two years ago. Buffalo traded a seventh-round pick in 2020 for him.Other notable releases include tight end Nick O'Leary and punter Jon Ryan. O'Leary had been Buffalo's No. 2 tight end the previous two years but had fallen down the depth chart this preseason. Ryan was signed on Aug. 21 after being released by Seattle after 10 years with the Seahawks. Incumbent Colton Schmidt outlasted Ryan in a brief competition.Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, a sixth-round pick Jack Tatum Jersey , remains on the roster after a strong finish to the preseason, as does undrafted receiver Robert Foster. Marcus Murphy earned a backup running back spot behind LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory following a terrific preseason.Buffalo's roster may not be set as areas of concern remain along the offensive line, where the team is still attempting to replace offseason departures center Eric Wood, guard Richie Incognito and tackle Cordy Glenn.__AP correspondent Mark Ludwiczak contributed to this report.
