Kyle Trask Continues His Strong Play

Saturday, August 26, 10:48 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Kyle Trask continued to step up and deliver despite being named the backup to open the season. The 25-year-old spent a majority of the preseason competing with Baker Mayfield for the starting gig in Tampa Bay. The Bucs ultimately decided to go with Mayfield as their starter. Despite that, Trask continued his strong preseason versus the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday. Trask completed 19-of-31 passing attempts for 192 yards and a touchdown in the win. He has been able to limit the turnovers and make some big plays on offense. The former second-round pick is set to backup Mayfield, but will be the next man up off the bench.

Desmond Ridder Looks Unimpressive In Victory

Sunday, November 26, 9:00 PM

Atlanta Falcons quarterback Desmond Ridder returned as the team's starter after the Taylor Heinicke experiment didn't work out too well. It seems like the time off didn't help Ridder improve at all. He was inaccurate and struggled throughout most of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. He completed 13-of-21 passing attempts for 168 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the win. Ridder also added seven rushes for 30 yards on the ground as he was eager to leave the pocket and run with the ball. There's not many good things to take away from Ridder's performance outside of the fact he didn't make a game-losing turnover in the fourth quarter. He should be considered a desperation option against the New York Jets next week.
