ns-Broncos.New York Giants at Los Angeles RamsSunday:?9:30 p.m. ET, NFL |?Point spread: NYG by 3Two of three insiders took the R Antworten

ESPN senior writer Mike Sando asks league insiders to pick winners in selected games each week. Three personnel evaluators took the challenge in Week 7. The games on the docket:?Giants-Rams, Redskins-Lions, Vikings-Eagles, Cardinals-Seahawks and Texans-Broncos.New York Giants at Los Angeles RamsSunday:?9:30 p.m. ET, NFL |?Point spread: NYG by 3Two of three insiders took the Rams while acknowledging that Los Angeles, diminished by top corner Trumaine Johnsons ankle injury, might have no answer for Odell Beckham Jr. The thinking was that Robert Quinns return to the Rams defensive line could be enough.I feel like Eli [Manning] has been totally afraid of the rush. It is almost like he is ducking as he tries to get the ball off, one insider said. Maybe that win last week ignites them, but it has been a struggle for him.The other insider picking the Rams wavered, but he liked their chances if Quinn and fellow defensive lineman Michael Brockers were available. He took the Rams by a field goal. It wasnt yet clear how much Quinn or Brockers might play, or how effective they could be. . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. . Houston won 3-0 to advance to face New York in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Last in the game, Di Vaio and Romero got into a shoving match with several Houston players. Romero appeared to elbow and kick Houston defender Kofi Sarkodie. . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. Tom Brady has packed and magnified all of his best attributes into his first two appearances of the 2016 season. He has led the New England Patriots to a pair of victories, improving his record as an NFL starter to 174-51. He has thrown for 782 yards, the most of any quarterback over that two-week span, and has six touchdown passes and no interceptions.And, perhaps most notably, Brady has zeroed in on his tight ends like never before.The Patriots have been a tight-end focused offense since 2010, the year they traded wide receiver Randy Moss while drafting Rob Gronkowski and the since-jailed Aaron Hernandez. But what Brady has done in two games with Gronkowski and newcomer Martellus Bennett has been incredible. Lets take a closer look.Brady has targeted his tight ends at nearly twice the NFL average this season, far and away the highest percentage in the league.Percentage of throws targeting TEs, 2016The Patriots, as anyone who watches them regularly knows, like to capitalize on Bradys timing and short-range accuracy with wide receivers who can make plays in the open field. To get downfield, more often than not, they prefer to use the mismatch of a bigger tight end on slower linebackers or smaller defensive backs.In fact, seven of Bradys 11 passes this season that have traveled 15 yards or more in the air have targeted tight ends. And in two games, his average pass to a tight end is traveling farther in the air (8.68 yards, eighth in the NFL) than his average pass to a wide receiver (8.55, 31st).Percentage of throws to WRs 5 yards or fewer downfield, 2016These results are an intense version of what Brady and the Patriots have been doing for years. Brady has targeted tight ends on a higher percentage of throws than all but two quarterbacks over that period (see chart below). He has averaged 8.92 yards per attempt on those throws, the highest in the NFL, and is fifth in air yards per attempt on passes to tight ends.ddddddddddddPercentage of throws targeting TEs, 2010-16Since the beginning of the 2010 season, Brady has thrown 100 touchdowns to tight ends, 15 more than the next-best quarterback (Drew Brees). In two games so far this season, Brady has found Bennett for three scores and Gronkowski for one.The pattern of shorter passes to wide receivers also traces back to 2010. Brady has thrown passes to wide receivers less than 5 yards past the line of scrimmage at a higher rate (31.4 percent) than all but four other quarterbacks. And his average pass to a receiver has traveled 9.61 yards per throw, putting him in some eye-catching company at the bottom of the NFL -- where he ranks No. 44 of 45 qualified players.Lowest air yards per throw to WRs, 2010-16Whats perhaps most interesting is that the Patriots veered from this approach during Bradys four-game suspension this season. Part of the issue was Gronkowskis injured hamstring, which cost him two games, but Bennett was available for all four games. Still, backup quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett targeted tight ends on only 22 passes in those games, the seventh-fewest in the league over that period.To complete the reversal from Bradys typical pattern, the average throw Garoppolo and Brissett made to a wide receiver went far enough downfield to put them in the top 10 of the league for that span.Air yards per throw to WRs, Weeks 1-4, 2016We all know the Patriots can change their offense on a weekly basis based on opponents. But over time, Brady has made it clear what he prefers to do when he has a choice: Tight ends, tight ends and then tight ends again.ESPN Stats & Information senior statistics analyst Jacob Nitzberg contributed to this story.
