The Seahawks and Eagles have been two of the more aggressive teams on the trade market in recent years and they remain hopeful of upgrading their rosters ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, according to multiple team and league sources. While the NFL's trade market is traditionally soft, and discussions were largely tepid this week, conversations will heat up after Sunday's games.

Seattle has made no secret of its desire to add a tackle, with the offensive line an ongoing cause of concern, and, as previously reported, the Seahawks have already explored potential trades for Cordy Glenn of Buffalo and Duane Brown of the Texans. Glenn is not a fit due to cap restraints with his contract, though Brown is still a possibility after he ended his long contract holdout last week and is expected to dress for Houston on Sunday.

The Eagles began identifying possible trade replacements for injured star Jason Peters shortly after he was lost for the season Monday night, and general manager Howie Roseman is open to upgrading his roster at spots beyond just the line as well, sources said. He will extend a wide net seeking to help fortify Philadelphia's playoff chances, with the above tackles as well as San Francisco's Joe Staley possibilities via trade. Roseman was pushing hard to acquire receivers to improve the cast around young quarterback Carson Wentz a year ago, and though unable to agree to terms on many, his intent was real.

With the Eagles boasting the best record in the NFC and Wentz soaring, several other NFL general managers said they expected Roseman to be working the phones hard next week.
The Cleveland Browns led at halftime Sunday, but almost predictably, things fell apart as the game wore on.

When it was over and the Browns were boarding the plane to return home, a miserable first half of the season had come to an ugly end.

The 33-16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings at Twickenham Stadium means the Browns have started 0-8 for the second year in a row. They are the fourth team in the Super Bowl era to begin consecutive seasons 0-8, according to ESPN Stats & Information, joining the 1976-77 Buccaneers, 1983-84 Oilers and 1993-94 Bengals.

This is hardly the stuff teams want to be remembered for.

The Browns fell apart in the second half, imploding under an onslaught of defensive penalties. Cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun was flagged for interference in the end zone to set up a Vikings go-ahead touchdown.

On Minnesota’s next possession, Cleveland linebacker Jamie Collins (for roughing the passer), cornerback Jamar Taylor (for interference) and Boddy-Calhoun (for holding) were penalized to help set up another Vikings touchdown.

Those calls helped turn a 16-15 Browns lead into a 30-16 deficit. It’s an old, tired line, but the Browns aren’t good enough to overcome that many mistakes.

The Week 9 bye will be much welcomed.

What it means: A season that started with a glimmer of hope built around the belief that rookies DeShone Kizer and Myles Garrett would be a foundation for the future has dissipated into mistakes, turnovers, glaring roster needs and eight losses in eight games. The Browns have given up at least 30 points in four of the past six games and have scored more than 18 points only once this season. The only thing unique about this loss was the continent where the game was played.

What I liked: The defense played well in the first half. As Forrest Gump might say, that’s all I have to say about that.

What I didn’t like: Zane Gonzalez is proving why it’s folly to use a draft pick on a kicker. Gonzalez accounted for four lost points on his own, with a missed extra point and a missed 35-yard field goal attempt. The Browns used only a seventh-round pick on Gonzalez, but he has missed four field goals this season. Cody Parkey was not an issue last season, so the Browns thought themselves into this situation.

Fantasy fallout: Isaiah Crowell got his first touchdown of the season and ran well, but his production is still not close to living up to the chatter about Crowell entering the season. He’s a talented back, but he doesn’t see the ball enough to warrant play in fantasy.

Players who didn’t step up: Kizer reached his goal of playing the entire game but did little to move the ball after a late first-half drive. Kizer was 8-for-12 in the first half as the offense scored 13 points, but in the second half he was 7-for-19 and wildly inaccurate before three garbage-time completions made the stats look slightly better (18-for-34 overall). When the Vikings went up 30-16, Kizer had two possessions in which he did not get a first down. Kizer has not progressed tremendously since the preseason, though to be fair, he's getting little help from his receivers. Two-thirds of the way through the fourth quarter, the Browns had 2 yards in the quarter. Total.

What’s next: The Browns welcome the bye week before returning with a game in Detroit on Nov. 12.

The news comes less than one week after PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, joined a handful of creators in voicing his frustrations with YouTube over  video views declining and subscribers suddenly disappearing.

The general theory is that YouTube has a new algorithm that has caused glitches. Although some in the internet community have come up with a conspiracy theory that YouTube boosts ads on the “trending” tab and videos with more likes and comments.

"It is really upsetting how [YouTube] did this change. They won't explain what happened properly to anyone," PewDiePie said in his video uploaded last Friday. "It's not just me, a lot of YouTubers are noting this."The Swedish gamer said the inexplicable changes feel like a "kick in the face."

Image result for pewdiepie deleting his channelMaker Studios, the digital entertainment network PewDiePie is a part of, issued a press release Wednesday stating that PewDiePie Markiplier, JackSepticEye, KickthePJ, Cryaotic and more will live stream Friday and Saturday to raise money for RED, an AIDS charity. It's supposed to kick off on Friday on PewDiePie's channel. 

Some speculate PewDiePie may be building buzz around deleting his channel to draw people to the channel for the charity stream. 

PewDiePie, after all, has been known to prank viewers before. 

But in his tweet, PewDiePie said he plans on deleting the channel at 5 p.m. GMT (12 p.m. ET and 9 a.m. PT).
