Raiders promoted assistant head coach John Pagano to defensive coordinator.

He's taking over for Ken Norton Jr., who was fired on Tuesday. It's not a stretch to say the Raiders have been historically ineffective on defense this season, generating zero interceptions through 10 games while allowing opposing quarterbacks to post a 113.3 QB rating. They are tied for last in the league in sacks (14). Personnel is the main issue, but a fresh perspective on the scheme certainly couldn't hurt at this point. Pagano was the Chargers' defensive boss from 2012-16.

Raiders fired DC Ken Norton Jr.

In many ways, Norton is the scapegoat for an underachieving team, but his firing is also completely justifiable. The Raiders have a league-low six takeaways, including an historic zero interceptions. No team has ever gone this late in the year without picking off a pass. Despite having reigning Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack up front, the Raiders are tied with the Giants for the fewest sacks (14). Opposing passers are posting a 113.3 QB rating when they face the Raiders. Something had to change. Ex-Chargers DC John Pagano is taking over.

Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.

The Texans needed help at running back after D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was lost for the season. Averaging a healthy nine yards on 33 receptions, it remains surprising that Ellington was cut loose by the Cardinals. He should see immediate playing time for the Texans, and will help keep plodder Alfred Blue off the field behind Lamar Miller. What Ellington is unlikely to do is provide legitimate PPR value in the Texans' Tom Savage-led offense.

Falcons waived CB Jalen Collins.

Collins was set to be activated from a 10-game PED ban, his second steroid suspension. Instead, the Falcons are moving on from the No. 42 overall pick of the 2015 draft. Still only 24, Collins played well down the stretch in 2016. Collins may clear waivers so teams don't have to pick up his contract, but he will undoubtedly get another chance.

Redskins placed LG Shawn Lauvao on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Lauvao is 1-of-4 Redskins to hit injured reserve on Tuesday, including fellow starting lineman C Spencer Long. Oft injured, this is the second season in three Lauvao will finish on I.R.. At least according to Pro Football Focus, he was performing as one of the worst interior linemen in the league before going down. Lauvao is headed for free agency. Ty Nsekhe finished Week 11 in Lauvao's place, and will presumably replace him going forward.

Giants RT Justin Pugh (back) hopes to return in Week 13.

Speaking Tuesday, Pugh said he is "feeling better," but does not want to rush his return. With the 2-8 Giants playing on Thursday night, it's a sensible policy from their right tackle. Chad Wheeler is filling in during Pugh's absence.

Lions waived DT Khyri Thornton.

Thornton had played just 68 snaps in four appearances since returning from a six-game PED ban. Turning 28 on Tuesday, Thornton will hunt for work as a run stopper if he clears waivers.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Broncos plan to start Paxton Lynch against the Raiders in Week 12.

Things have been trending this way since Sunday's (latest) loss. Official word is expected to come Wednesday. Lynch showed very little in two rookie starts, but the Broncos have nothing to lose as they play out the string of a lost season. They need to find out if their 2016 first-rounder has anything resembling a future under center. Lynch couldn't ask for a softer opponent than a Raiders team generating essentially zero pressure or turnovers.
