The next significant event in the 2022 NFL season will be the Thursday night game involving the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. Ahead of that, it has been mainly injury updates, power rankings, and odds-and-ends for NFL football fans.

NFL News and Headlines for Wednesday, September 14th

Brooke Pryor of ESPN wrote an article for September 14th, 2022 about the Pittsburgh Steelers and Mitch Trubisky. The Steelers QB is quoted in the article as saying that he and his offense need a “killer instinct” in their approach to advancing the ball. Mike Tomlin, the head coach of Pittsburgh, was in the discussion as well. The balance of the article suggested that Pittsburgh would be more aggressive with the ball in their next game.

Will that lead to turnovers from high-risk play or improved scoring for Pittsburgh? Time will tell as they prepare to host the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Another September 14th, 2022 headline at ESPN had to do with concussions among football players. Kevin Seifert headlined: “Concussions among players who wore Guardian Caps over summer dropped more than 50%, NFL says.” The physicality of NFL football has always been a concern for many. Arguably, it affects grass-roots participation. Parents might prefer that their children participate in less aggressive sports. Technology that leads to a decline in concussions is certainly a positive development.

From other headlines, NFL fans should be expecting Joe Flacco to play in the QB position for the New York Jets (ESPN’s Rich Cimini). Aaron Robinson, the cornerback for the New York Giants, will miss Week 2 after having his appendix removed (ESPN’s Jordan Raanan). Lastly, Dan Hanzus updated his power rankings at He has the Buffalo Bills going No. 1 and the Kansas City Chiefs going No. 2. That is the reverse order for our own power rankings ahead of Week 2.
