NFL Scores Week 4: Results, Standings and Top Fantasy Stars from AFC, NFC Games

Week 4 of the 2017 NFL season is underway, and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers kicked it off with a bang against a listless Chicago Bears squad.

Despite a rash of injuries to his offense, Rodgers went off, completing 18 of 26 attempts for 179 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions.

His nearly mistake-free performance set the stage for a week full of big games from individual fantasy stars, and it put his Packers at the top of a competitive NFC North.

Other standouts from around the league, as well as standings, can be found below:

     

Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers (and perhaps the Bears defense) made the game look pretty easy on Thursday Night Football. But even though they cruised to a 35-14 victory, the Packers didn’t leave the game unscathed.

With the game essentially wrapped up, Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan drilled a defenseless Davante Adams, who was already wrapped up, with a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit. Adams would leave the game on a stretcher, while Trevathan was given a two-game suspension the next day.

“This was a big character win for us,” Rodgers said of his injury-riddled team, per the Associated Press (via ESPN.com). “It’s been a next-man-up, no-excuses policy.”

That mentality will have to continue into next week, as Adams isn’t likely to be ready to go for Green Bay’s Week 5 matchup at the Dallas Cowboys.

Davante Adams is in the concussion protocol,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said, per the team’s Twitter account. And that means another game with plenty of weight on Rodgers’ shoulders, something Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd said has become a Green Bay staple:

Even with a flawed roster that is heavily impacted by injuries, Rodgers should continue to be one of the NFL’s most dynamic weapons.

     

 

Deshaun Watson

If it wasn’t already clear enough, Deshaun Watson left no doubt that it’s his era of Houston Texans football against the Tennessee Titans.

In a 57-14 drubbing of a division rival, Watson piled up 283 passing yards, 24 rushing yards and five total touchdowns (four through the air and one on the ground).

The monster performance put him in pretty good historical company, per ESPN Stats & Info:

And this came against a Titans team that had just won back-to-back games over the Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks.

Days like this are extraordinary, but it’s clear that the Texans have something in their rookie quarterback. With Watson leading the offense and JJ Watt doing the same on the other side of the ball, Houston could be in line for a division title. 

     

Cam Newton

Cam Newton barely averaged double-digit fantasy points over the course of the first three weeks of the season. In Week 4, he doubled his season total of 32 points against a New England Patriots defense that could be in real trouble.

As a passer, Newton went for 316 yards, three touchdowns and an interception on 22-of-29 passing. He also ran for 44 yards and a touchdown, seen here on the NFL’s Twitter:

Now, of course, Newton won’t have the luxury of facing the Pats defense every week. So, questions of consistency remain with the former MVP. But scoring looked like a nightmare for Carolina through its first three games. Good signs are good signs.

Even if Newton is somewhere in the middle of this performance and the way he played up to this point, the Panthers could be dangerous once again.

Marilyn Manson Cancels Nine Shows After NYC Stage Injury

Marilyn Manson has canceled the next nine dates of his Heaven Upside Down Tour following an onstage incident Saturday in New York in which the singer was crushed by a stage prop.

“Marilyn Manson is being forced to cancel several of his October dates on his forthcoming US tour,” the singer’s rep said in a statement.

“On Saturday night, the legendary performer suffered an injury on stage towards the end of his set at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom causing him to cut the show short. He was treated for the injury at a local hospital and will be recuperating at home in Los Angeles.”

As of Sunday afternoon, the rep declined to say if Manson had left the New York hospital.

Manson’s rep added, “The shows from Boston, October 2 through Houston, October 14 will be rescheduled for a later date. Manson hopes to return to the stage soon, more details on upcoming shows to follow.”

According to Manson’s itinerary, the rocker is currently scheduled to resume his tour October 15th with a gig at Grand Prairie, Texas’ Freaker’s Ball.

The incident occurred roughly an hour into Manson’s concert, the third date on the North American leg of Manson’s Heaven Upside Down tour. During “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These),” Manson made his way toward the back of the stage, where a prop featuring two giant pistols suddenly fell forward onto Manson. Video from the concert shows Manson grappling the prop before it comes crashing down to the stage.

After the stage crew lifted the prop back up, Manson lay on the ground for several minutes. EMT workers also rushed to the backstage area as venue workers yelled “Ice! Ice!” repeatedly. The concert was canceled soon after.

The severity of Manson’s injuries has not yet been announced.

Apple Investigating Two Possible iPhone 8 Plus Battery Failures

Apple is investigating after two iPhone 8 Plus owners shared pictures of the device burst open due to possible battery failure.

“We are aware and are looking into it,” an Apple spokeswoman confirmed to MacRumors.



The first customer is reportedly a Taiwanese woman, who said her iPhone 8 Plus burst open despite charging with an official Apple power adapter. Chinese media sites reported that the device has been returned to Apple, as part of its routine investigation of these isolated incidents every year.



A second customer from Japan shared a picture of an iPhone 8 Plus with the display assembly detached from the device’s aluminum enclosure.






In both cases, it appears that the battery may have swelled due to gases inside. The expansion then placed too much pressure on the display, causing it to pop open, which may actually help avoid a fire.


No Need to Worry



With millions of iPhones coming off of Apple’s production lines every time new models launch, it’s common for a few to have battery failures.



It’s simply an inevitability with lithium-ion batteries.



It happened with some iPhone 7 models, and it’ll probably happen with iPhone X and whichever models come after.



It’s only when reports of battery failure become a larger trend, as Samsung learned the hard way after dozens of Galaxy Note 7 devices caught fire last year, that it truly becomes a problem.

JAY-Z Rocks Custom Colin Kaepernick Jersey During ‘SNL’

Saturday Night Live came swinging out the gate for the premiere of their 43rd season. La La Land’s Ryan Gosling was the host, with musical performance by JAY-Z.

Considering the theme of his latest album 4:44 and what has been going on in the world, people assumed that Hov was going to come through with Trump-protest like performance. And he did.

The first song he performed was “Bam”, and he brought out Damian Marley while sporting a custom Colin Kaepernick jersey. Hov took off the jersey for the second song, and rocked an all white tee to sing the somber title track, “4:44”.

In other JAY-Z related news, Tidal pledges to send a plane with 200,000 pounds of supplies to aid the victims in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria. The streaming service will also donate all proceeds from the annual benefit concert to those affected by all recent hurricanes, and the earthquake in Mexico.
