Cam Newton completed 23-of-29 passes for 193 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Panthers' 52-21, Week 10 loss to the Steelers.

Newton rushed just twice for 10 yards. The Panthers marched down the field on their opening drive for a 7-0 lead, but that would prove to be the highlight of the night for Newton and company. The Steelers immediately tied the game with a 75-yard JuJu Smith-Schuster score and Newton answered with one of the worst throws of his career. Trying to avoid a safety on a botched screen, Newton blindly heaved what turned into a pick six to ILB Vince Williams. Newton later never felt T.J. Watt's pressure on what was nearly a lost fumble. Newton was shaken up after the monster hit but stayed in the game. He has 10 days to get healthy for a Week 11 matchup with the Lions.

Bengals hired Raiders QBs coach Brian Callahan as offensive coordinator.

Bill Callahan's son, Brian has been an NFL quarterbacks coach since 2015, spending 2015 in Denver before a two-year sojourn in Detroit. He joined Jon Gruden last offseason. A card-carrying cocoon member, it is entirely unclear if Callahan is qualified to run an NFL offense. It's possible new coach Zac Taylor serves as his own play-caller, anyways.

Impending free agent OLB Dee Ford "would love" to be back with the Chiefs.

Despite his offsides penalty costing the Chiefs a late interception and likely Super Bowl berth, Ford had an outstanding 2018, recording 13 sacks and making his first Pro Bowl. That kind of production will earn him a fat contract if he reaches the open market, but it is unlikely the Chiefs let him get there, retaining him either with a long-term deal or the franchise tag. The latter would earn Ford around $15.6 million for 2019.

Agent Tom Condon believes Eli Manning will be back with the Giants in 2019.

"I think he’d love to come back," Condon said. "Guys love to play their whole careers with one team if they have a good experience with that team." Set to make $17 million including a $5 million bonus due in mid-March, Manning's return could be contingent on the veteran taking a pay cut, but Condon has yet to have those conversations with the team. Even if Manning sticks around, the Giants' No. 1 priority this offseason should be finding their quarterback of the future.

CBS broadcaster Tony Romo confirmed he's received recent contract offers from NFL teams.

It's not surprising; Romo is now years removed from the back injuries that effectively ended his career and won't turn 39 until April. "There was something earlier this season and definitely two times this offseason," said Romo. "Usually, it is a coach that reaches out." Romo did indicate he's happy in broadcasting, where he's fast emerged as the top color analyst in the game.

Alex Smith was spotted wearing a massive brace on his right leg at the Washington Wizards' game on Monday.

Per Dr. David Chao, the brace is called an "external fixator." It can be viewed at the link below. After suffering compound and spiral fractures in his right leg, Smith dealt with infections that prompted several more surgeries. Smith appears highly unlikely to be ready for the beginning of the 2019 season.

The Chiefs are having "internal discussions" about whether to retain DC Bob Sutton.

No decisions have been made yet, but Sutton is understandably on the hot seat after his unit developed into the Chiefs' Achilles' heel. Kansas City finished 30th in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA in 2017, and 26th in 2018. In fairness to Sutton, the Chiefs' defensive talent has eroded in recent years.

Titans promoted TEs coach Arthur Smith to offensive coordinator.

Smith is so much of an unknown that he lacked a Wikipedia page at the time of this writing. According to the team, he is "wrapping up his eighth season on the Titans coaching staff." He started with the club as a defensive assistant/quality control coach but moved to the offensive side of the ball in 2012. He has served under four different head coaches in Nashville. Amazingly, Smith will be Marcus Mariota's fifth offensive coordinator in five years. As Freddie Kitchens has once again proven, unknown does not equal bad hire. We just don't have anything to go on.

The Washington Post's Mark Maske reports the NFL's competition committee will "give consideration" to making pass interference calls reviewable.

Several coaches including Sean Payton, whose team was on the receiving end of a horrific and game-changing non-call on Sunday, have been in favor of making pass interference reviewable, and it sounds like there is a possibility they will get their wish. "It will be discussed at length along with additional fouls that coaches feel should be subject to review," a source told Maske. A more comprehensive and streamlined review system could help, but the underlying issue is a serious refereeing problem which needs to be addressed.

NFL announced the Buccaneers, Raiders, Rams, and Jaguars will host games in London and the Chargers will host a game in Mexico City during the 2019 season.

The London games will be split between Wembley Stadium and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium while the Estadio Azteca will get another shot to host an NFL game after a matchup between the Rams and Chiefs this season had to be relocated because of poor field conditions. As for the visiting teams, the Panthers will travel to face the Bucs, the Bears will play the Raiders, the Bengals will meet the Rams, the Texans will battle the Jaguars, and the Chiefs will get their second shot at Mexico City against the Chargers.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins plan to hire Packers run-game coordinator Patrick Graham as their defensive coordinator.

After the Josh McDaniels debacle in Indianapolis last year, the hire will not be made official until the Dolphins formally hire Patriots de-facto DC Brian Flores as head coach. Graham worked with Flores in New England from 2009-2015, spent two years coaching the defensive line for the Giants, and was the Packers run-game coordinator and linebackers coach last season.

Todd Gurley said he is healthy despite playing just 32-of-69 snaps in the Rams' NFC Championship win over the Saints.

Gurley missed the final two games of the regular season with a left knee injury, but he did not blame that issue for his limited playing time. "I was sorry as hell today," Gurley said. "I was sorry. So, C.J. [Anderson] did his thing and the whole team did its thing." To his point, Gurley dropped two passes including one which resulted in an interception, missed a blitz pickup, and did little on the ground outside of a six-yard touchdown. Even so, it is tough to believe his knee had nothing to do with the limited snaps. The good news is Gurley has two weeks to shake it off before the Super Bowl.
