Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers was activated for Thursday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings after spending the first seven weeks of the season on the physically unable to perform list. Bowers, who suffered a torn Achilles in May, returned to the practice field Oct. 17. He was a second-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in 2011, and he played all 16 games last year, making six starts. He wound up with 25 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Buccaneers cleared a roster spot for Bowers by cutting cornerback LeQuan Lewis. Tampa Bay signed Lewis in September, and he appeared in one game, recording one tackle and one pass defensed.

Last week: 25 (-1) Record: 2-4 So apparently you can shove a receiver out of bounds and that’s not PI, but if he comes back in bounds and catching a game tying touchdown, that’s a penalty. I picked the Buccaneers last week, so obviously I was pissed about that. That and Vincent Jackson going for [...]

MINNEAPOLIS In order to understand the Metrodome, one has to understand stagnancy.
Scraps of trash flutter from the upper deck, directly down, down, down. Paper airplanes fly dead straight, coasting on the absence of breeze.
But the building is more complicated than that. In the best and loudest of moments, it is stagnancy exploded. There's no air to carry away the piercing...
