NFL Week 10

If you are interested in watching any NFL game you want, go here. You will be able to watch all the NFL games no matter where you are located.

The NFL has rescinded a $7,500 fine against New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck for a hit on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Brooks Bollinger last weekend.

Ray Anderson, the NFL’s vice president of operations, called Tuck on Friday night to inform him of the change, the Giants said in an e-mail on Saturday.

Tuck had insisted the hit was legal and Giants coach Tom Coughlin agreed with his player on Monday.

Tuck hit Bollinger in the midsection as the quarterback released a pass and his momentum carried both to the ground on the third-down play in the fourth quarter.

Tuck was penalized for roughing the passer. The league originally determined that Tuck had unnecessarily driven Bollinger to the ground and issued the fine on Friday.

Four days of practice was enough for the Detroit Lions, who started new quarterback Daunte Culpepper on Sunday. The three-time Pro Bowl selection hasn’t played this season, but got the nod against Jacksonville.

Culpepper signed a two-year contract, which he negotiated as his own agent, with the Lions on Tuesday and began practicing with the team the same day.

Detroit starter Dan Orlovsky was inactive Sunday with a thumb injury.

Culpepper, 31, has thrown for 22,422 yards and 142 touchdowns with 94 interceptions with Minnesota, Miami and Oakland. He retired last year after six lackluster starts with the Raiders. An injured right knee stunted his career in 2005 and a second surgery a year later set him back again.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen was in the starting lineup Sunday against Green Bay despite being listed as doubtful with a sprained shoulder.

Allen did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday and did only light work on Friday while nursing the injury that occurred in the first half last week against Houston.

He received a pain-killing injection at halftime and played the rest of the game, getting two sacks in the second half to help the Vikings to a 28-21 victory.

Losing him would have been a big blow to one of the best defensive lines in football in a critical game as the Vikings (4-4) and Packers (4-4) kick off the second half of the season.

Jacksonville linebacker Mike Peterson, sent home earlier in the week from practices, did not dress for Sunday’s game at Detroit.

According to players, Peterson and coach Jack Del Rio had a confrontation Wednesday during a team meeting when the coach called out the linebacker for a muscle-flexing celebration after he made a sack as the team trailed Cincinnati by 18 last Sunday.

The 10-year veteran rejoined the Jaguars on Friday.

Voted a captain by teammates and clearly the defensive leader, Peterson leads the team with 85 tackles. But he hasn’t been one of Del Rio’s favorites, especially because Peterson ripped the franchise for not offering him a contract extension during the offseason.
