Nick Pivetta is hoping to get back on track as the Philadelphia Phillies go for their first series win in three weeks.

Pivetta will take the mound to face left-hander Tyler Anderson and the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park.

A right-hander Authentic Brent Burns Jersey , Pivetta (4-5, 3.76 ERA) has a 5.79 ERA over his last three starts and opponents are hitting .294 against him in those games. Pivetta picked up a loss in all three of those outings, including last Thursday when he gave up four earned runs on six hits in five innings against the Cubs.

Pivetta made one start against the Rockies in his two-year major league career, and it did not go well. He allowed eight runs in 2 2/3 innings on Aug. 5, 2017 at Coors Field.

The Phillies held on for a 5-4 win in the series opener against the Rockies on Tuesday night and got a 10-strikeout performance from right-hander Aaron Nola and a four-RBI night from Scott Kingery. The win was the second in a row for the Phillies (34-30), marking the first time since May 16-17 that they won back-to-back games.

If they win one of the next two against the Rockies, the Phillies will have their first series win since taking two of three from the Braves on May 21-23.

The Rockies, meanwhile, are on a five-game losing streak. It’s their longest skid of 2018 and the worst losing streak the team has had since it lost eight straight games from June 21-28 in 2017.

The Rockies have been outscored 41-24 during their last five games and, at 32-34, are two games below .500 for the first time since they were 5-7 on April 10.

Anderson (3-1, 4.81 ERA) is coming off one of his best starts of the year. He matched his season best with seven innings and gave up just two runs on five hits to the Reds while striking out five.

“That was a very solid outing,” Rockies manager Bud Black told MLB.com of Anderson after the start. “I thought the changeup was really effective. He commanded the fastball well.”

Anderson has previously faced the Phillies three times in his career and is 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA and 1.313 WHIP.

Anderson will face Kingery, a rookie, for the first time in his career. Kingery has been the Phillies’ everyday shortstop for the past two weeks and his four RBIs on Tuesday night tied a career high.

Kingery’s batting average is only at .215 through 200 at-bats this season, but he’s had multi-RBI games twice in his last five contests.

“That’s how you want to start a series, especially against a good team like this,” Kingery, who hit a three-run homer in the first inning, told NBC Sports Philadelphia after the win. “You want to be the first team to score. Nola did a great job right before that. This kind of gives us some momentum.”

A look at what’s happening around baseball today:

THIRTEEN AND COUNTING

Edwin Jackson is set to play for his 13th team in the majors, matching the most by any big leaguer. The injury-depleted Athletics are promoting him from Triple-A to start at Detroit. The 34-year-old righty will tie the clubs mark held by former reliever Octavio Dotel. Jackson made his debut in 2003 with the Los Angeles Dodgers and later pitched for Tampa Bay, Detroit, Arizona Authentic Jaden Schwartz Jersey , the Chicago White Sox, St. Louis, Washington, the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta, Miami, San Diego and Baltimore.

Jackson and Dotel, who finished up in 2013, were teammates just once in their overlapping careers. They were part of the same three-team trade in July 2011 that sent them to St. Louis, and pitched in the World Series for the champion Cardinals.

AILING

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is likely headed to the disabled after pulling up while running out a double-play grounder Sunday at Tampa Bay. Manager Aaron Boone said Sanchez hurt his right groin/hip abductor and ”it’s probably going to be a DL situation.” He will have an MRI.

Sanchez is hitting only .190 with 14 home runs and 41 RBIs, a season after he made the AL All-Star team while batting .278 with 33 homers and 90 RBIs.

BUCKEYE BROOMS

The AL Central-leading Indians and the NL Central cellar-dwelling Reds each have seven-game winning streaks. Both teams finished up sweeps in Ohio over the weekend and now hit the road – Mike Clevinger (6-2, 3.00 ERA) starts for Cleveland in St. Louis, and Tyler Mahle (6-6, 3.89) pitches for Cincinnati in Atlanta.

REST UP

Cubs star Kris Bryant is day to day with a sore left shoulder. The third baseman missed his second straight start Sunday at Cincinnati, but doesn’t expect to be out much longer. Bryant is hitting .280 with nine home runs and 36 RBIs in 66 games. The Cubs next open a series at Dodger Stadium.

HE’S O-K

Astros ace Justin Verlander leads the majors with a 1.60 ERA and is among the league leaders in strikeouts. He’s fanned at least 10 three times this season – Houston is 0-3 in those games, totaling just two runs. Verlander (9-2) and J.A. Happ (9-3) both try to reach double digits in wins when Toronto visits Minute Maid Park.

GETTING CLOSER

Cubs right-hander Yu Darvish is ready to make a rehab start for Class A South Bend in the Midwest League. He’s been out since May 20 because of triceps tendinitis. He’s expected to throw around 75 pitches, and hopes to be back in the majors after that outing. Darvish is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA in eight starts since signing a $126 million, six-year deal with Chicago as a free agent.

TAKE A BREAK

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario is being held out of the starting lineup as part of a mental break over the next couple of days. The 22-year-old is hitting just .249 and has struggled this month.

”We brought him in and talked to him, sat him down and we’re going to make sure that we take these next couple of days to work on some things in his overall game,” manager Mickey Callaway said. ”This young kid is still trying to develop at the major league level and these couple of days will allow him to get some work done in the cage, some work done in the field tomorrow taking groundballs and things like that. So we thought this would be really good for him.”

The Mets have lost six straight. They’ve also dropped 13 of 14 at Citi Field heading into a home series against Pittsburgh.

The Rams’ defense is going to be challenged as the Chargers have one of the better offenses in the league led by QB Philip Rivers, RB Melvin Gordon and WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. In order for the Rams to win this game, the Rams defense has to keep the Chargers to under 20 points. The Spanos’ Chargers defense will be without all pro DE Joey Bosa so I would expect the Rams to score their league average of 33 points.Absent turnovers and unforced penalties assuming the Rams’ offense and defense play up to their expectations, there is no reason they shouldn’t come out with a win.The Rams cannot take the Chargers lightly even though they are coming off of an unimpressive win against the Buffalo Bills who started rookie quarterback Josh Allen. That came off the back of a humiliating ten-point loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.The Chargers just aren’t same team on defense without Bosa. The unit ranks 9th in yards allowed per game, 13th against the rush and 14th against the pass, compared to the Rams offense which ranks 7th in yards per game, 10th in rushing and 13th in passing. I know that Rams Head Coach Sean McVay will come up with a gameplan which will put up the points needed for victory so I’m not concerned about that.What the Rams need to do on offenseRam fans know that the offense is all about RB Todd Gurley. Todd didn’t have a great rushing game against the Cardinals last week, but numbers can be misleading. He’s a force that must be accounted for whether its on the ground or in the passing game.The Rams need to get Todd going early again. The Rams offensive line, which has been one of the best in the league thus far in 2018, needs to do a better job of opening up lanes for Todd to go through which they didn’t do terribly well last week against the Arizona. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this issue will get fixed this week.But the key to offensive production will be what the Rams do on third down. To me the most important offensive stat is third down efficiency. Great teams make the crucial third down needed to keep drives going.The Rams performed exquisitely on third downs last week against the Cards by the Rams with QB Jared Goff and his outstanding group of WRs: Brandin Cooks, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. This unit made some terrific catches which kept critical offensive drives alive.When defenses are forced to crowd the first down marker on third down due to consistency, invariably big plays open up for bigger gains. The Rams need to continue from where they left off last week. It starts with good protection and a running game leading to third and short allowing for easy makeable first downs.I would like the Rams to have long drives in this game in order to keep the Spanos’ Chargers’ offense off the field. As long as the offense stays away from the turnovers and penalties taking time off the clock, the Rams offense will score points. And it all starts with Gurley. If the Rams can get him going in the run game, then these long drives are guaranteed success.What the Rams need to do on defenseAs long as the Rams keep RB Melvin Gordon in check on the ground, I don’t expect the Chargers to rely on a dink and dunk passing game. This is because they have one of strongest and fearless quarterbacks in the NFL: Philip Rivers. He’s not afraid to take a hit.That being the case, its time for our “Fearsome Threesome” to step up on the defensive line.The Rams are still looking for that edge rusher, and this is game where the Rams need to find that guy. Without a edge rush, the Rams could well be vulnerable to the pass, but I have the upmost confidence in Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips who has a lot familiarity with the Chargers offense being the former defensive coordinator for fellow AFC West brethren Denver Broncos, Wade knows how to stop the Chargers.It’s also a bit of “pick your poison” between CBs Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters both ofwhom also came out the AFC West. It’s important for the Rams’ secondary to blanket the Chargers receiving corps. When the coverage is there and the rush develops, look for the Rams to finally breakout of the sack slump.In my youth, the San Francisco 49ers used to have a quarterback named John Brodie. My mother used to call him “Rabbit Ears.” The reason she coined this nickname for him was his tendency to allow his emotions to affect his game play. The one thing that got Brodie riled up was the great Los Angeles Rams DE Deacon Jones. When he got to Brodie, it was game over. Brodie would yell at his offensive line and wide receivers and he’d then throw his helmet off as he stormed off the field onto the bench.I have watched Phillip Rivers for a long time. To me, this is one flaw in his game, and it’s a big one. He doesn’t know how to control his emotions just like Brodie.Once he gets off his game because of the rush, takes a sack, throws a bad ball or an interception, he blames everyone except himself. He starts complaining and loses focus of the job at hand. This is what separates him from QB Tom Brady. Brady gets mad Womens Rodger Saffold Jersey , yells at players and coaches, but that’s it. He gets it out right then and there. He doesn’t allow his emotions to carry over into the next series. That’s not the case with Rivers.If the Rams defense can control the ground game, limit the “dink and dunk” with tackles a the point of contact, and the Rams “Fearsome Threesome” can be fully unleashed upon Rivers, THIS GAME IS IN THE BAG. By forcing the bad throws down the field, getting those sacks causes Rivers to become very uncomfortable in the pocket. Once that happens, Rivers unravels. His temper flares up. This is exactly what the Rams defense must do against one of the better offenses in the NFL, and this is what excites me the most about this game. The fact that its time to unleash our monster defensive line headed by DT Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers and Ndamukong Suh upon Rivers. “Down Goes Rivers!’ And on the next series “Down Goes Rivers!” And the series after that “Down Goes Rivers!” and there’s nothing the Chargers offensive line can do to stop it.What the Rams need to do on special teamsI’m not too concerned with the Rams’ special teams. Having seen replacement K Sam Ficken perform last year coming in for starting K Greg Zuerlein, I believe he’s a competent kicker.I also know that P Johnny Hekker is the best in the league. If the Rams’ offense struggles, he will kick those beautiful punts inside the ten-yard line.The one performance which has to be duplicated is PR JoJo Natson getting big returns. If JoJo does as well as he did last week, the Rams are in a good spot to win this game comfortably. If not, it will be up the offense and defense to perform to the levels Ram fans are accustomed too.The Chargers have had their issues in special teams under Head Coach Anthony Lynn. Although the team has made improvement, it’s not enough. We got John “Bones” Fassel.The X-factorsThe Spanos’ Chargers play this game up as #FightForLA. While the Chargers may be fighting for Los Angeles, the Rams are battling for the Super Bowl. There is no love lost between the management of the Rams and the Chargers.Dean Spanos tried to block the Rams from coming home to Los Angeles. Then when he lost that, he horned in the Rams new stadium and moved the team after 56 years from San Diego.I don’t like the Chargers one bit, neither do my fellow diehards.All polls indicated that close to 70% of Los Angeles align themselves with the Rams and not the Chargers. The simple reason is this: They don’t belong here. They belong in San Diego.Players don’t get too involved in all this hype between managements, but a part of this does carry over in how the game is approached. If your focus is on winning the Fight for Los Angeles rather then on the Super Bowl, you’ve lost the battle already. There are going to be plenty of Rams fans in the Coliseum this Sunday. The “Save the Bolts” crew will have airplanes flying over head with derogatory banners directed towards Spanos. Since arriving in southern California, the Spanos’ Chargers get more fans in the StubHub stands rooting for the opponents as they do being an unwelcome home team.This game means a lot to Rams management, although they will never say it publically, they’re too classy for that.That’s where the Rams fans step in and let the Spanos’s Chargers know they’re not welcome in Los Angeles, whether its DTLA, Costa Mesa or Inglewood.I would like nothing better then to see my Los Angeles Rams, the only team which really represents the heart and sole of Angelenos destroy the Chargers. That might be a big challenge, but there’s no reason my Rams can’t send the message to Spanos’ Chargers that they should leave Los Angeles while the team has some dignity left. I might even feel sorry enough them to help pack their bags.But probably not.GO RAMS!

The Kansas City Chiefs unofficially demoted offensive lineman Cam Erving to a backup swing-tackle role when they released their depth chart on Monday night; on Tuesday Youth Tyreek Hill Jersey , they extended his contract.The Chiefs announced the move on their official Twitter account.Friend of the site Terez Paylor of Yahoo! Sports chimed in with contract details.Erving had been entering the final year of his deal in 2018 after the Chiefs chose not to exercise his fifth-year option back in early May.Head coach Andy Reid and the Chiefs have always been high on offensive linemen who are versatile, and during his short time with the Chiefs, Erving has at least practiced at all five positions. “Cam is very versatile,” offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said on August 6. “He can play center, he can play guard, he can play tackle. If you ask him, he can play tight end and running back as well. He also said he could throw it. He is doing a heck of a job. He is smart, he is tough, he is flexible and when you got those guys who can play any position it makes him valuable. “He brings that versatility and that helps us. Now we don’t get pigeonholed trying to play him in one spot. That helps us a great deal.”Erving was the Chiefs’ first-team left guard all training camp and preseason, but after a less-than-stellar performance, the team opted to go with Andrew Wylie as its starter.Erving Youth Chris Conley Jersey , who the Chiefs traded for back in August of 2017, has gone on record to say that he is most comfortable playing the tackle position. Now he will be serving the Chiefs as the backup for both Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz for the next couple of seasons.The Chiefs have been seeking a player to replace Zach Fulton’s since Fulton left the team this offseason to sign with the Houston Texans. From 2014 to 2017, Fulton started 40 games (including playoffs) for the Chiefs—20 at right guard, 12 at center and 18 at left guard.“I learned a lot from Zach as far as how he just played each position seamlessly,” Erving said. “That comes with time, of course. I definitely learned a lot from Zach as far as his approach to the game and how he narrowed things down and didn’t try and think about too much.”Fulton was paid for his versatility, and now Erving has been, too.Arrowheadlines: Chiefs have the “most dangerous receiver in the NFL” The latestKansas City Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill is the most dangerous receiver in the NFL | Pro Football FocusSports Misery Index: How miserable is each NFL fan base? | ESPNKansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos: Keys to a Monday night win | 41 Action NewsHow Chris Harris Jr.’s versatility can help Broncos slow Chiefs | ESPNAndy Reid tells Brett Favre he sees similarities in Patrick Mahomes | NBC SportsWhat can Tom Brady teach Patrick Mahomes?

The second day of practice has arrived Green Bay Packers T-Shirt , and players are getting back into the swing of things after a long six-week break since the conclusion of minicamp. Hopefully all of the players have shaken off the rust with that first session yesterday and are ready to really dive into the application of the team’s playbook.For the second straight day, the Packers are scheduled to begin practice at 11:30 AM local time, giving young Packers fans some time to sleep in a bit before heading to the Lambeau Field parking lot in an effort to convince a player to ride their bikes over to the practice field. It’s always a great tradition and one that brings plenty of smiles to the faces of the kids, parents, and players alike.As always, we have a collection of Packers media representatives curated for you to bring all the news, updates, big plays, and interesting nuggets from practice today. Keep it locked here as we discuss the events of the next few hours.Practice Updates from Packers MediaTweets from https://twitter.com/TexWestern/lists/packers-newsPackers release fullback Aaron Ripkowski as part of final cuts, per report Once an understudy to Green Bay Packers’ folk-hero John Kuhn, fullback Aaron Ripkowski had the name and grit to quickly become a fan favorite in his own right. But at least for the time being, Green Bay is cutting ties with the fourth-year player.As has been noted in the past Green Bay Packers Hats , the role of the fullback has been diminishing across the NFL. The Packers were one of very few teams to utilize the position in a prominent role. However, even last season, there were signs that Green Bay was also beginning to move away from its traditional use of the fullback. Ripkowski was called on for just five carries and seven receptions in 2017, a far cry from his 34 carries in 2016. His offensive snap count also was significantly reduced by over 100 (288-180) in that two-year span. The release of Ripkowski in the final year of his rookie contract paves the way for an extra tight end to make the final roster. At the time of this post, Emanuel Byrd and Robert Tonyan were still safe from the cut down and each could play a role as an H-back player for the Packers in Ripkowski’s absence. Also adding intrigue is that Joe Kerridge currently remains a Packer. The third-year fullback has bounced between the active roster and practice squad over the past two seasons, but also contributes on special teams.It was noted earlier today that Quinten Rollins suffered a hamstring injury and could pose a difficult challenge to the Packers’ front office if they value his versatility in the secondary enough to place him on returnable injured reserve. In that case, Ripkowski could be a strong bet to find his way back on the roster after injury placements sort themselves out. Still, there could be some interest in Ripkowski from teams around the league that still employ the fullback position.In the scenario that Green Bay does not retain Ripkowski, the Packers are in a curious position in terms of their backfield for week one. With Aaron Jones serving a suspension and Devante Mays and Joel Bouagnon released earlier today, it leaves Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery as the only two sure-fire players to be in the backfield. While Kerridge and late pickup LeShun Daniels have not been mentioned in the reported releases as of yet, it would appear the Packers could be on the lookout for another running back casualty in final cuts around the NFL.Stay tuned to our Roster Cuts Tracker to follow along with all of the Packers’ moves this weekend.

The Bengals had a host of key players sitting out on Wednesday.Among them was starting left guard Clint Boling Cheap John Ross Jersey , who apparently has a knee issue that could compromise his availability. It is, however, possible that Boling’s issue is minor and this was more of a veteran’s rest day. The last thing this offensive line needs is its best player out for one of the biggest games of the season.Also missing Wednesday was running back Giovani Bernard, who is likely out this week as he recovers from an MCL injury expected to sideline him another 1-3 weeks. The good news is John Ross returned, though only as a limited participant. He was also limited last Wednesday before missing the next two days and was eventually declared inactive.Backup tight end Tyler Kroft is in a walking boot and riding a scooter, so he’s almost certainly out this week, which is why the Bengals signed Matt Lengel.As for the Steelers Bengals Bobby Hart Jersey , quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, cornerback Joe Haden and center Maurkice Pouncey got what were likely veteran’s rest days off on Wednesday.Starting safety Morgan Burnett was unable to go due to a groin injury.Bengals at Falcons injury report: A.J. Green, Preston Brown good to go The Bengals will have nearly all hands on deck when they face the Falcons in Week 4.The team released its final injury report on Friday, and only two players on the 53-man roster are unable to go. They are Billy Price (foot) and Joe Mixon (knee), who were effectively ruled out before today, so this was the expectation.The good news is A.J. Green (pelvis), Preston Brown (ankle) http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-shawn-williams-jersey , Cordy Glenn (knee), Giovani Bernard (thigh), Michael Johnson (knee) and Dre Kirkpatrick (groin/back) did not get an injury designation for Sunday, signaling they’re all ready to rock in Atlanta.All of them had at least one DNP or limited session at practice this week, but apparently, none of their injuries were enough to threaten their Week 4 status.Green is the big news, as his injury initially looked bad enough that he may be sidelined this week. Coupled with Price and Mixon being out http://www.thebengalsfootballauthentic.com/andy-dalton-jersey-authentic , that would have been a brutal loss for a Bengals team that needs a rebound after last week’s setback in Carolina. As for the Falcons, there were no surprises on their final injury report. Star running back Devonta Freeman (knee) remains out, as does defensive end Derrick Shelby (groin).

It seems the Bengals could look to sign a different quarterback to the practice squad to take that final spot.We’ll keep you updated as the Bengals make more roster moves, which could include one more player being added here.UPDATE: Christian Hackenberg is joining the Bengals’ practice squad as its final member. The quarterback has been a draft bust to this point, but will attempt to develop further in Cincinnati.

Vying for a 53-man roster spot at a safety position already seeking extra depth http://www.authenticsgreenbaypackers.com/cheap-corey-linsley-jersey , Jermaine Whitehead was sidelined during the second quarter of the Green Bay Packers’ exhibition opener with a back injury against the Tennessee Titans. He is listed as questionable to return.Without long-time veteran Morgan Burnett in 2018, Green Bay was already stricken by the injury bug early in camp when Kentrell Brice suffered an ankle injury. In his second season with the Packers, Whitehead was next in line for a role at safety and had a strong showing in the Packers’ annual Family Night practice with several successful blitzes from the slot. His versatility as a dime cornerback in training camp certainly could help win Whitehead a spot on the active roster with Ha Ha Clinton Dix, Josh Jones Color Rush Kentrell Brice Jersey , and Brice in position to earn 53-man spots.Whitehead was the lone Packers injury reported during an otherwise healthy first half of preseason action on Thursday night. A back injury could mean a variety of possibilities and, while there will be updates to come, it would not appear the injury is too serious. Whitehead likely will sit out the rest of the game for precautionary reasons.Stay tuned to Acme Packing Company for any further injury updates.Packers power rankings, Week 5: Green Bay slips backs into top 10 After a one-week hiatus from the top 10 of SB Nation’s NFL power rankings Youth Aaron Rodgers Jersey , the Green Bay Packers have returned.Sunday’s 22-0 shutout of the Buffalo Bills might have left quarterback Aaron Rodgers wanting more, but it moved the needle enough to push the Packers up to No. 10 in the Week 5 edition of the power rankings. The team dropped out of the top 10 after losing to Washington a week earlier.The Packers’ new position makes them the highest-ranked NFC North team. The Chicago Bears come closest, trailing Green Bay at No. 11 after demolishing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Minnesota Vikings, the previous lead dogs in the division within the power rankings Color Rush Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , fell out of the top 10 down to 12th following their Thursday night loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions find themselves all the way back at No. 27.The Packers performed similarly well elsewhere on the internet this week.

Yahoo Sports, who have kept Green Bay higher on the power rankings than others Youth Kevin King Jersey , ranked them again at No. 7. Only USA Today left the team outside the top 10, slotting them in as the 11th-best team in the NFL.

Demarcus Robinson’s time was also up—he saw 45 offensive snaps for 58 percent.Chiefs running back Spencer Ware’s snaps were up—he was on the field for 24 offensive snaps (31 percent). Starter Kareem Hunt, by comparison, had 45 offensive snaps (58 percent).

Those players were on the field 100 percent of the time.Linebacker Justin Houston and Anthony Hitchens were on the field for nearly the entire time, too—they had 58 snaps apiece. Reggie Ragland’s snaps were way down from last game. The Chiefs only had Ragland, who had preseason knee issues, on the field for 26 defensive snaps.

There are some really tremendous wide receiver duos throughout the NFL — the type that keep defensive coordinators up at night. But there is perhaps no better trio of wideouts in the NFL than the ones being fielded by the Los Angeles Rams. Earlier this month on GMFB http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/brandin-cooks-jersey , Peter Schrager echoed that stating he thought the Rams trio of receivers - Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, and Cooper Kupp - were the best in the league (and potentially all-time). And while the jury is still out on whether or not this trio will go down with the all-time greats, it doesn’t appear he’s wrong about the Rams sitting atop league’s list of most lethal WR pairings. And with one quarter of the season behind us, it appears Pro Football Focus agrees. On Friday they dropped their third receiving corps rankings of the 2018 season. The Rams, as you might suspect, are numero uno: This really should come as no surprise to fans, of any fanbase, as the Rams’ offense has looked nearly unstoppable to start the 2018 season — and all three of these wideouts are on pace to eclipse 1,200 yards this season. Earlier this year, PFF ranked the NFL’s receiving corps at the end of May Authentic Robert Woods Jersey , and once again prior to the preseason. All three of these articles were written by different PFF staffers, and both of the earlier rankings appeared to include tight ends or running backs as part of their “corps” definition. The only mention of “tight end” in this most recent ranking is that it’s the 49ers best pass-catching option (insert evil laughter). If you’re not interested in clicking, the Rams ranked 8th on May 31 and 12th on July 31.Los Angeles Rams top week 4 storylines The Rams are going to start backups at cornerbackThe depth of the Los Angeles Rams secondary has been pretty good, especially at CB. And now it’s time to reap those rewards with both CB Aqib Talib and CB Marcus Peters out for several weeks. So, think CB Sam Shields and CB Nickell Robey-Coleman with a lot of Troy Hill. TST’s very own Sosa is not a fan of the latter.And in more terrible news, CB Aqib Talib’s ankle is going to get some work done:Rams/Chiefs comparisons are the hot topic this weekThe NFL Network is running this narrative that these are the two most exciting teams in the NFL all week and it makes sense. Both offenses are high scoring and they’ll be playing in a Monday Night Football game in Mexico City in November, so it’s smart to hype this rivalry up. But let’s be fair, the Rams have a much better defense, even with the injuries. The hype on the Rams’ offense heats upRams Wire ran a piece that emphatically declared that QB Jared Goff has now become the franchise quarterback of the Rams. For what it’s worth, Goff has the pressure removed from his back once again and he can just focus on throwing strikes to Cooks, Woods Robert Woods Jersey Elite , and Kupp (the receivers, not the law firm).The Rams’ defense is ranked 27th vs. the runAs the Rams find themselves at the top of most of the Power Rankings, ESPN made the point that their run defense is not getting it done so far. This could be more about questions with the inside linebacker position (the injury of Mark Barron, anyone?) It would be very surprising if the Rams’ run defense continued to struggle with with the talent they have on the roster. And Barron is coming back soon, right? Right?The Rams really want fans to fill the stadium on Thursday night Coach McVay is special, we know this. But it became even more clear when he signed his name to a full page ad that was printed in the LA Times this week, pleading with employers to allow their workers to leave early in order to attend the primetime game vs. the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday night. C’mon! McBae is the best.Ok, those are the storylines for now. Thursday night can’t arrive soon enough.

as offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings, John DeFilippo diligently worked on developing Rashod Hill Jersey Black Friday his system around the skill-position pillars he inherited and learning the strengths and weaknesses of his new players.DeFilippo also held some frank offseason conversations with head coach Mike Zimmer about how the Philadelphia Eagles so successfully attacked his scheme. This weekend, those tips will finally come in handy for Zimmer and the rest of Minnesota’s defense.More Vikings coverageVikings coordinators: Defending Brees, Holton Hill’s role, a Minneapolis Miracle story and moreWATCH: The second annual Minnesota Sports AwardsVikings welcome Everson Griffen back to practiceVikings captain Griffen returns to team activitiesVikings Snap Counts: Rookie Hill shines with Rhodes ailingThe Vikings visit the Eagles on Sunday in a rematch of the NFC championship game that sent them home humbled after a 38-7 defeat. DeFilippo was the quarterbacks coach for the team that went on to win the Super Bowl, earning him a ring for his trophy case and a promotion with Minnesota.Much is at stake for the Vikings (1-2-1), beyond any superficial desire for revenge. They’re already behind in what promises to be another ultra-competitive NFC playoff race.For all the proficiency that Kirk Cousins has displayed passing the ball to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, the Vikings have had unreliable protection in front of him and also failed to run the ball with any consistency. DeFilippo, naturally, will face another critical test of his play-calling acumen on the road in one of the most difficult stadiums for a visiting team to play in.There’s more to this game than that for him, though. The Eagles, despite only serving two years under head coach Doug Pederson, were the team that raised the 40-year-old DeFilippo’s profile as an up-and-coming head coach candidate. Pederson helped teach him the value of outside-the-box and aggressive thinking.“If you were doing your job, he let you run with it, take something and make it better,” DeFilippo said https://www.minnesotavikingsshop.com/Jalyn-Holmes-Jersey , “and that was my goal every day.”Don’t forget that Philadelphia, too, is DeFilippo’s de facto hometown. He was a star quarterback at suburban Radnor High School, while his father was the athletic director at Villanova. Going to Eagles training camp or attending Monday night games at Veterans Stadium was a standout memory from his youth. Stepping inside Lincoln Financial Field will be a moving moment for DeFilippo, for sure.“I’m human. You know it will be,” DeFilippo said, adding: “Once the game starts, it’s going to be like any other game. But I have nothing but respect for everyone there in that building. Just like this building, there are some really phenomenal people.”The early returns on DeFilippo’s presence with the Vikings have produced similar sentiments.“He’s done a phenomenal job,” Thielen said. “He just loves the game of football. He wants us to do well on the field, and that goes for everybody on offense. That’s what you want in a coach. You want a guy who cares a lot about you and wants to have success as a team, not just as an offense.” EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — As Kirk Cousins backpedaled in the pocket with Minnesota on the move late in the first half last week, Adam Thielen broke for the back corner of the end zone.Cousins had to make an off-balance throw to beat a fast-approaching Michael Bennett, and Thielen had little room left in bounds to secure the catch with two Philadelphia defenders a step behind him.The ball floated just over the outstretched arm of cornerback Jalen Mills and neatly into Thielen’s hands in time for him to hit both feet on the turf and give the Vikings a two-touchdown lead on Sunday. Mills was flagged for holding to add to the degree of difficulty on the play.But about one-third of the way through the first season for Cousins in Minnesota the fact that the pass was completed was hardly a surprise.“He does such a good job of just making it easy on us,” said Thielen Laquon Treadwell Color Rush Jersey , who leads the NFL with 47 receptions and is second with 589 yards. “We just worry about getting open, and he’s almost catching the ball for us. We just have to continue to make sure that we’re doing the little things to be at the right depth and the right timing of things, because it’s so important when you have a guy that’s as talented as him to be in the right spot at the right time.”With a quickly formed faith in Thielen and the rest of the Vikings receivers, Cousins has repeatedly succeeded in threading pinpoint throws into tight windows with “a little guts and a little bit of arm talent,” as coach Mike Zimmer put it recently.Cousins ranks fifth in the NFL with a 71.2 percent completion rate that doesn’t tell the full story of his precision. He’s been under pressure as frequently as any of his peers, with 35 hits taken (tied for seventh most in the league) and 14 sacks allowed (11th most) by the Vikings that could easily be more if Cousins didn’t have a quicker release.The tying touchdown pass to Thielen in the final minute of the fourth quarter at Green Bay on Sept. 16 was the most memorable example to date. Cousins, as he was about to be hit, somehow zipped the ball between two converging defenders into the arms of Thielen for him to fall backward into the end zone while maintaining possession. The Packers couldn’t have covered that much better.“If it was an inch left or an inch higher or an inch lower it gets knocked down,” Thielen said.Sometimes, there’s a little luck in play, too.“If that was a random second down in the middle of the second quarter, I would’ve been like, ‘Hey, that one’s a little tight,'” Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said. “But if you’re trying to drive down and win the football game, there’s less than a minute to go in the game Linval Joseph Jersey , those are the chances you have to take.”Even if the quarterback himself isn’t sure the pass will reach the target.“It’s a fast game, and if you think you’re going to throw every throw with great vision and a great understanding of where the ball is going, I think you’re fooling yourself,” Cousins said. “There’s a lot of throws that I make, especially last Sunday, where I’m trying to listen to the crowd’s reaction to decide if it was complete or incomplete because I’m looking through peoples’ shins to try to see what happened. That’s the nature of this league.”There’s no more important trait at this position than being able to consistently put the ball in the right place, even as a youth. In the opening credits for the TV show “Friday Night Lights,” high school quarterback Matt Saracen is shown throwing into a tire hanging in his front yard in fictional Dillon, Texas. For an NFL standout like Cousins, that accuracy was always there. He’s been able to develop and improve it.“It’s innate. You either have it or you don’t,” Cousins said.Some of his counterparts who were more runners and scramblers in high school and college have had a harder time with pro-style precision.“I was actually pretty slow as a kid, wasn’t a great athlete, so I had no choice but to stand in there and find a way to throw the football from the pocket,” he said, “and I think in the long run that’s served me well.”

They give the Chiefs credit for taking the Patriots to the wire at Gillette Stadium without Eric Berry or Justin Houston. In reality, the Patriots and Saints are the real favorites for the #2 spot and the Saints are coming off a bye week. New Orleans has the best offense in the league and one of the worst defenses Mike Gillislee Jersey Black Friday , in a more extreme version of the Patriots’ performance this season. I’d personally take the Patriots over the Saints, but pollsters are still penalizing the Patriots for losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Detroit Lions, while the Saints only lost their opener to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The Saints have a brutal stretch over the next six weeks, with games on the road against the Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings, and Cincinnati Bengals, while they host the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, and Atlanta Falcons. We’ll find out if they’re truly deserving of one of top rankings over the coming weeks.Around the AFC East: (4-2) New England Patriots at (3-2) Chicago Bears(4-2) Miami Dolphins vs (2-3) Detroit Lions(3-3) New York Jets vs (3-2-1-) Minnesota Vikings(2-4) Buffalo Bills at (1-5) Indianapolis ColtsAFC Matchups: (4-2) Cincinnati Bengals at (5-1) Kansas City Chiefs(4-1) New Orleans Saints at (4-2) Baltimore Ravens(3-3) Tennessee Titans) at (4-2) Los Angeles Chargers(3-3) Houston Texans at (3-3) Jacksonville Jaguars(2-3-1) Cleveland Browns at (2-3) Tampa Bay Buccaneers(2-4) Denver Broncos at (1-5) Arizona CardinalsBye Weeks: (3-2-1) Pittsburgh Steelers, (1-5) Oakland Raiders************************************************2nd - MMQB Staff (SI): Perhaps the Patriots’ three-week climb back toward the top is proof that we shouldn’t be so quick to move teams up or down. But they can’t reclaim their preseason spot at No. 1 until the Rams lose.2nd - Experts (ESPN): Playoff chances: 89.4 percent. It looks like the only thing that could derail the Patriots’ playoff chances would be an injury to Tom Brady or his WR corps. Brady is completing 72 percent of his passes with 9.3 yards per attempt to WRs in his past three games https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Malcolm-Mitchell-Jersey , compared with 57 percent and 5.5 yards per attempt during his first three games.2nd - Joe Giglio (NJ.com): The AFC still goes through the Patriots. Defense is still suspect to big talent and speed, but Tom Brady and his offensive weapons can score with anyone.2nd - Nate Davis (USA Today): Sony Michel has little shot of overtaking Saquon Barkley in ROY race, but he does lead all first-year backs with 80 rush yards per game.2nd - Expert Consensus (Bleacher Report): We’ve figured it out. The Patriots stumble in September to troll the media. Give us something to talk about. Or they might just be bored after owning the AFC for the last decade-and-a-half.Either way, every time people start hand-wringing about the Pats, they wind up with egg on their faces and crow on their plate.As the Pats demonstrated quite clearly in taking down the AFC’s last undefeated team in Week 6, they’re just fine—thank you very much. After a 1-2 start, the Pats have reeled off three straight wins, scoring at least 38 points in each.This offense could be downright scary, as Sobleski pointed out:”The Patriots proved they’re still the team to beat in the AFC after a Sunday night takedown of the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are loaded on offense yet play little to no defense. New England may not feature the league’s best defense. However, it can at least stop someone once or twice. Plus Vincent Valentine Color Rush Jersey , the Patriots offense is only going to get better as Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman become more comfortable.”The AFC’s big bad is still both.What a game.2nd - Joshua Schrock (NESN): Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs shredded New England’s defense, but Brady saved the day by engineering a game-winning drive to once again assert the Patriots’ dominance in the AFC.2nd - Rebecca Toback (SB Nation): The Patriots proved on Sunday that we were all crazy for doubting them during their 1-2 start to the season. New England beat Kansas City on Sunday Night Football in the shootout we all expected. It was a thriller that has the Patriots climbing up the Week 7 NFL power rankings and landing at the No. 2 spot, right ahead of the Chiefs. The Chiefs fought hard and almost staged an impressive comeback, but you can never count out Tom Brady and he proved to be the guy you want leading a game-winning fourth-quarter drive.2nd - Staff (AP Pro32).3rd - Frank Schwab (Yahoo! Sports): There were so many things to like about Sunday night’s game, but let’s not overlook kicker Stephen Gostkowski. He hit all nine kicks (five field goals, four extra points) and there was no doubt that he’d hit the game-winner as time expired. There’s something to be said about having a reliable kicker.3rd - Mark Maske (Washington Post): Remember that 1-2 start to the season? It’s a fading memory now. The Patriots have totaled 119 points while winning their last three games. The return of Julian Edelman and the addition of Josh Gordon have fixed the problems at WR. Now comes a trip to Chicago to face a Bears defense that ranks among the league’s best but couldn’t stop Brock Osweiler on Sunday in Miami.3rd - Pete Prisco (CBS Sports): They showed they could play with anybody in the league by beating the Chiefs. Getting the running game going is big for the offense.3rd - Mike Florio (ProFootballTalk): Go ahead and make those reservations for Atlanta in early February.5th - Bryan Fischer (Athlon Sports): Lost amid the furor of that wild win over the Chiefs was the fact that the Pats rushed for 173 yards. Given the limitations on defense, that’s a trend that will only help make this offense more dangerous and allow them to win shootouts and physical battles all the same.Week 7 Average Rank: 2.5

then you’re well aware that my bold predictions are like shots in the dark aimed in the Kurt Warner Jersey Black Friday opposite direction. That being said, he’s a prediction from last week:The five touchdowns was too bold, but RB Todd Gurley II had never ran for 200+ yards, so I’m just going to say what we’re all thinking: the Rams fans are Todd Gurley’s muse. But now the Los Angeles Rams travel to Santa Clara where the hated San Francisco 49ers pretend that they’re still in San Francisco. Most of the Rams fans are picking the Rams to stomp all over the Niners even though it’s their third road game and San Francisco didn’t look horrible vs. the Packers last week. So, what’s going to happen?Let’s get bold.Bryce Hager has himself a dayLB Bryce Hager is one of those classic underdog players that is training harder than other players at his skill level. Basically, Hager is a hustle guy for Coach Bones. I like the kid and I’m boldly predicting that he’ll have two, count ‘em two, huge plays on special teams. One of these plays will be a blocked punt and the other will be a fumble recovery. This will happen. Trust me.Greg Zuerlein comes up big with a game winnerHow I’ve missed Greg the Leg. How many bowls of nachos were thrown across a living room due to the inadequate kicking skills of Sam Ficken and Cairo Santos? Too many to count. But this Sunday, Zuerlein will mark his return by breaking the hearts of the tech bros in attendance when he nails a 55-yard kick to take the lead. Yes, my sub-bold prediction is that the game will be too close for comfort in the 4th quarter. I’m just saying that a bold prediction is that the Niners hang with the Rams until the last five minutes when Jared Goff and Todd Gurley take over. Then, good ol’ Zuerlein will drive it home with his newly constructed groin (probably not the technical term, but my medical knowledge is limited to having watched four seasons of Scrubs.)A pick 6 for fan favorite Cory LittletonILB Cory Littleton was talked about a lot in the offseason due to his “unknown factor” that is quickly eroding because the dude can ball. So, yeah, he’s gonna intercept a weak C.J. Beathard passing attempt and then he’s going to trot over 60 yards for a glorious touchdown. With Cooper Kupp out, the tight ends emerge and dominateIt’s crazy how many snaps TE Tyler Higbee has gotten this season while barely getting noticed by anyone. He’s the Patrick Swayze in Ghost of offensive skill players. And while TE Gerald Everett has shown his ability for splash plays, he hasn’t nearly reached his potential. And with a week to implement a game plan without the services of slot receiver Cooper Kupp, I predict that Coach McVay will go back to his first love: an offensive scheme that generosity dishes out passes to two tight ends. Both Higbee and Young Gerald will amass over a hundred yards in receptions as they make a statement that these guys are good; it’s just that WR Brandin Cooks, WR Robert Woods, and WR Cooper Kupp are really good.Jared Goff will throw for over 400 yards and 3 TDsWhen I make my report card for the Rams on Sunday night Jared Goff Color Rush Jersey , I’m betting that I will be giving the Mighty Goff an A+ for his efforts. And a bonus prediction: he’ll score another perfect QB rating. Similar to last week’s game, the Rams are going to find themselves in a competitive matchup. C.J. Beathard can make plays and given that he’s going up against the best team in the NFL, I’m predicting that he’ll rack up some gaudy stats, but in the end, the Rams’ defense will clamp down with some clutch stops. The Rams are the team to beat, but it won't be this week in Santa Clara, California. Rams win — 41-38. THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Josh Reynolds prepares every week as if he is a starter.With Cooper Kupp not expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday because of a knee injury, Reynolds will finally get to take his mindset literally.“If you practice like you’re a starter or prepare like you’re a starter, you know, you’re pretty much a starter,” Reynolds said Wednesday.“You know everything. You know your assignments. You know what you’re supposed to do, and that’s like 95 percent of offense. If you know what you are doing then you’ll be pretty good.”In his second season out of Texas A&M, Reynolds proved his worth as a reserve against Seattle in Week 5 when Kupp got a concussion late in the second quarter. Reynolds had two receptions for 39 yards and one carry for 10 yards, all on three consecutive plays during Los Angeles’ first possession of the third quarter.When quarterback Jared Goff called the fly sweep, Reynolds was still tired from making his first catches of the season. But the whole sequence confirmed that Reynolds was capable of playing without a drop-off behind the three starters in Kupp, Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods.“I kind of just chuckled and was like, ‘Yeah, we’re going to be fine Orlando Pace Jersey Black Friday ,” running back Todd Gurley said.For Reynolds, who had played just nine of the Rams’ 267 offensive snaps through the first five games, the quick introduction got him right in the flow of the game.“I wasn’t used to three plays in a row like that from being a backup kind of guy,” Reynolds said. “But definitely being able to go in there and get those catches, it builds some confidence for me leading through the rest of the game and it helped a lot.”Reynolds was pressed back into action when Kupp sprained his knee at Denver on Sunday, though he did not make as much of an impact as the previous week. He had one reception for a 2-yard loss and had another pass hit him in the facemask, bouncing up in the air and being intercepted.It was only the sixth turnover of the season for the Rams, something Reynolds credits to Goff’s timing and the overall rhythm of the offense. He is still getting used to it after playing nearly 60 percent of snaps the past two games.Still, Reynolds has made substantial strides in his overall understanding of coach Sean McVay’s offense.“I’m able to work things out,” Reynolds said. “I’m feeling a lot more comfortable with the offense and knowing my assignments, so it definitely slows the game down for me.”The difference will be on display this week, as McVay effectively ruled out Kupp from the Rams’ third straight road game.To add depth at receiver, the Rams signed free agent Nick Williams on Tuesday. Williams has familiarity with some of the terminology and schemes McVay uses after playing in Washington, Atlanta and Tennessee. Williams most recently worked with former Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur in a stint with the Titans earlier this season.The addition of Williams became even more important as Reynolds was limited during Wednesday’s walkthrough because of a hand injury. Despite leaving the locker room with his hand wrapped in ice, Reynolds was looking ahead to a possible matchup with 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman.“He’s an elite athlete, but at the same time I’m a player,” Reynolds said. “We’re going to have to compete. I’m not starstruck.”NOTES: DE Michael Brockers (shoulder), OLB Matt Longacre (back) and LG Rodger Saffold (knee) did not participate Wednesday.

during the first six weeks of the 2018 season http://www.thebengalsfootballauthentic.com/tyler-eifert-jersey-authentic , but it will be up to others to pick up the slack in the coming weeks.Vigil injured his knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Steelers and did not return to the game. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Monday that Vigil has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and that he’s expected to be out for about a month while he recovers.Vigil has 51 tackles and four tackles for loss this season. Vincent Rey saw his most snaps of the season after Vigil’s injury and will join Vontaze Burfict, Preston Brown, Jordan Evans and Hardy Nickerson at linebacker while Vigil is out.The Bengals also saw cornerback Darqueze Dennard leave Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury. He left the locker room with his arm in a sling, but there’s been no other update about his condition.Bengals LB Vincent Rey could be a value backup again in 2018 Vincent Rey has been around for awhile, and while he has never really gotten to the level of earning a starting role over other Bengals linebackers Womens Nick Vigil Jersey , he has served a very valuable role as a depth linebacker. The past few years with Vontaze Burfict in and out of the lineup have made that position especially important as Burfict routinely gets suspended or fined.Last year was one of the more important years for Rey. He started 11 games as linebackers fell like flies due to injury. He also was tasked with helping along young linebackers like Jordan Evans, Hardy Nickerson and Brandon Bell who ended up playing more than anticipated.It was very much a humbling year for Rey, though as his age is starting to show. He will turn 31 in early September, and we saw several examples of athletic play makers taking advantage of Rey. Can he still hold his spot as the depth linebacker?Vincent ReyHeight: 6’Weight: 250 poundsCollege: DukeHometown: Brooklyn, NYExperience: Eight seasonsCap statusRey has one season left on his contract. He is set to make $2.25 million this season while carrying a $2.725 million cap hit Womens Bobby Hart Jersey , according to Spotrac. Considering the Bengals situation at linebacker it would be fairly surprising to see the team extend or re-sign Rey for next year. The only way would be if he signed a contract that was heavily based on him making the roster for the 2019 season, but even then the Bengals will likely be content to move forward with their youth at the position.BackgroundRey is probably the poster child for undrafted free agents with the Bengals. Of course Burfict followed a similar route, but he was considered much more likely to be a contributor based on talent. Rey was almost an afterthought. He had to fight his way onto the roster, and he worked his way into an eight year career that isn’t over yet.The only two seasons Rey didn’t play in all 16 games was his rookie season and the 2017 season. That is the kind of dependability that will keep you on a roster. He exploded onto the scene in 2014 when he started 13 games and recorded 121 tackles, which is a career-high.Rey has also played just about every linebacker position as well as contributed heavily to special teams. He really did just about anything the team asked him to do. 2018 outlookRey will have to fight to hold his position as the first linebacker off the bench Womens Alex Redmond Jersey , and we will learn early on if he remains to hold onto that position with Burfict set to miss the first four games of the season due to suspension.Nick Vigil (who started last year) and Preston Brown will likely be the starting linebackers with Burfict, but until his return we will likely see either Rey or Evans filling. For now, Evans has won the job. One of the things that could hurt Rey keeping his position on the depth chart is new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin coming in and giving everyone an equal shot at competition. A guy like Paul Guenther may have valued Rey’s knowledge of the system more. Plus the fact the defense is changing puts all the linebackers on more of an even paying field, although Rey’s experience is still invaluable.Rey will probably end up being the first guy off the bench, and we will likely see plenty of him on defense and special teams.

In fact, tonight’s prime time game sets up to be one of the best matchups in the league this Green Bay Packers Womens T-Shirt season.The 5-0 Chiefs have been blisteringly hot on offense this season, averaging 35 points per game and only dipping below 30 once all year. Their defense is largely a mess, allowing a whopping 5.8 yards per carry (last in the league) and ranking 19th in passing DVOA. They will be facing Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots, who come in on a long week after finally looking like the team everyone expected over the last two weeks, including a convincing win over the Colts on Thursday night last week.That’s the big matchup today, but there are some decent under-cards during the day. Look to Panthers-Washington or Bears-Dolphins in the early batch of games if you need some interesting matchups.EARLY GAMESAll games kick off at 1:00 PM Eastern/12:00 Noon CentralPittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati BengalsPaul Brown StadiumCincinnati, OHCBSIndianapolis Colts at New York JetsMetLife StadiumEast Rutherford, NJCBSLos Angeles Chargers at Cleveland BrownsFirstEnergy StadiumCleveland, OHCBSBuffalo Bills at Houston TexansNRG StadiumHouston Green Bay Packers Hats , TXCBSCarolina Panthers at WashingtonFedEx FieldLandover, MDFOXSeattle Seahawks vs. Oakland RaidersWembley StadiumLondon, EnglandFOXArizona Cardinals at Minnesota VikingsU.S. Bank StadiumMinneapolis, MNFOXTampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta FalconsMercedes-Benz StadiumAtlanta, GAFOXChicago Bears at Miami DolphinsHard Rock StadiumMiami, FLFOXAFTERNOON GAMESLos Angeles Rams at Denver Broncos2:05 PM MT (4:05 ET)Mile High StadiumDenver, COFOXJacksonville Jaguars at Dallas Cowboys3:25 PM CT (4:25 ET)AT&T StadiumArlington, TXCBSBaltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans3:25 PM CT (4:25 ET)Nissan StadiumNashville, TNCBSSUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALLKansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots8:20 PM ETGillette StadiumFoxboro, MANBC Sundays aside Green Bay Packers Womens Hoodie , Green Bay could be categorized as a sleepy town. Historically, this label could also be applied to the team during the run up to the NFL’s trade deadline. Not so under new General Manager Brian Gutekunst. Nearly at the whistle — 4pm eastern time on Tuesday — two transactions were announced. The first sends the recently embattled Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2020 7th round pick. Reports of his imminent release make a future draft pick of any kind in return feel like a win. Meanwhile, the team also received a 2019 4th round pick for former first rounder Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Although Dix made a number of splash plays this year, the writing was on the wall that he would not be coming back next year. Again, getting such value in return feels like a win. That’s all well and good for the future Green Bay Packers. But what about the now? After moving on from these two players, are the Packers better off? Or do these moves represent a circling of the wagons on this season. We gathered immediately after the trade deadline to give our rapid reactions on the tumultuous day in Title Town.

Mahomes fought some first-quarter jitters and second-half stagnancy to finish with a 24 of 38 for 314 yards and three-touchdown performance. THAT....was the worst?(Yes.)It was an up-and-down performance for the second-year player from Whitehouse, Texas, and somehow Cheap Customized Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , he still dazzled. He still did remarkable things that I don’t have enough space to write about, and he had his best play of his young career. THAT...was the worst?(Yes.)In a game that the 2018 Chiefs offense showed a few cracks in its armor and gave a few clues as to how defenses can slow this explosive unit, they still managed to score 35 points in the first half and 38 in total. They’re scoring average dropped from 40 points per game to 39.3 points per game.As Kansas Citians, we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. It wasn’t dropping this week. There’s going to be a performance unbecoming of the expectations we currently have for this unit. Someone will get them. The 49ers helped solve some of the puzzle, but it still isn’t enough. The kid has not been perfect, but he’s been phenomenal. The best part is, there’s still plenty of room for growth.Something goodIs there anything scarier than giving this offense a free play?I like the development of this group of talent getting an opportunity to try and make a big play without any negative consequence. That scenario just seems unfair.You saw Mahomes’ disappointment in Week 1 of the season when an offside penalty was blown prematurely before they had a chance to take a shot. That’s the mentality you want to see. On the play above, Mahomes didn’t take a shot at the end zone but still found an explosive play from the defensive mishap.Mahomes can’t catch the wide snap, but he picks the ball up in enough time to get his eyes up the field and read the defense. He hangs in the pocket long enough to find tight end Travis Kelce working behind underneath zone defenders. The calmness to deliver this throw after the chaos of the offside and the ball being on the ground is impressive. He worked through the play even though factors around him were disorganized.The mentality to attack the game is prevalent in this play is just what you want to see. We haven’t had a quarterback take advantage of opportunities like this enough in Kansas City. Mahomes is gifted a chance to get the ball in the hands of Tyreek Hill www.thechiefsfootballauthentic.com , Sammy Watkins or, in this case, Kelce. Hopefully, this a trend that continues.BONUS SOMETHING GOOD:Mahomes did an excellent job in slowing down and throwing Kelce inside on this corner route to protect him. Like we saw last week on the touchdown pass to Kelce last week, he’s reducing the amount of impact Kelce could feel by splitting the space in half. Great work.Something badSometimes, you forget Sunday was Mahomes’ fourth career start.Second-and-10 in the first quarter. The Chiefs motion Chris Conley across the formation and cornerback Richard Sherman bounces out with him. The 49ers are showing a single-high safety look, and safety Antone Exum walks up to the line of scrimmage. The Chiefs have used this particular look in the boundary throughout the preseason and regular season. Kareem Hunt has always free released with no protection responsibilities. Hunt free releases on the play and the offensive line blocks the four down linemen. Mahomes never sees Exum on a blitz until he finishes the play on the ground.I’ve spent a lot of time looking at this play to try and be fair to Mahomes on assignment. I’ve come to the conclusion that there wasn’t a protection failure and he just didn’t identify the blitzing safety. Had Mahomes seen Exum, he could’ve dumped it off to Kareem Hunt for positive yards, as Sherman bailed into a deep zone on the snap of the ball. Quarterback anecdoteEvery week I add a quick note about something I’ve picked up about the quarterback position through my time learning and playing the game.There are changes to a quarterback’s assignment when it comes to running the clock out. If a team is in a situation where they just have to run the ball and not turn it over to win Kansas City Chiefs T-Shirt , the priority for the quarterback isn’t the play fake; it’s watching the ball. As you can see on this play late in the fourth quarter, Mahomes is quick to track the ball, making sure that there isn’t a fumble. In a special situation like this, the play-fake is secondary to keeping track of where the football is. It’s a little thing, but it’s important. Details like this matter.

Jared Goff Los Angeles Rams HC Sean McVay has confirmed that multiple starters will sit against the Houston Texans this weekend including RB Todd Gurley, LT Andrew Brandin Cooks Jersey Elite Whitworth, C John Sullivan and TE Gerald Everett:McVay was non-committal when it came to QB Jared Goff whose participation may depend on the availability of RT Rob Havenstein:It’s a tough decision. On one hand, teams historically play their starters in the preseason more than not at all to shake off the offseason rust and get some kind of rhythm and not wait until Week 1 of the regular season to get some game action. On the other, uh, injuries. They suck.But with all starters except for RG Jamon Brown and EDGE Samson Ebukam having sat out the first two preseason games and likely to sit the last, this game would be the only chance to get them some action before the Rams head north to take on the Oakland Raiders in Week 1.What do you think, Rams fans? Is this prudent cautiousness or overzealous concern? Jalen Ramsey backs up his big talk with big plays.Now the Jacksonville cornerback can crow about something else.Ramsey was the overwhelming choice as the NFL's top cornerback by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press. The All-Pro received eight first-place votes in balloting released Friday."Big talent and a big mouth," wrote New York-based lead NFL writer Barry Wilner. "Still, the guy can cover http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/brandin-cooks-jersey , isn't afraid to hit, and likes to match up with the top receivers."Marcus Peters of the Los Angeles Rams, last year's top choice, was second and had the other two first-place votes, followed by Arizona's Patrick Peterson.After helping the Jaguars reach the AFC championship game before losing to New England last season, Ramsey made headlines with his mouth.First, he ripped Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen as "trash" and called Atlanta's Matt Ryan overrated in the same interview with GQ magazine . It was released a few days after he was suspended during training camp for screaming obscenities at reporters who were videotaping a post-practice altercation between defensive ends Dante Fowler and Yannick Ngakoue.It wasn't the only time Ramsey was in the news in August. The third-year pro also dismissed four-time All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski of New England by telling ESPN The Magazine, "I don't think Gronk is as great as people say he is."Two weeks into this season, Ramsey said he would hit his grandmother if she were on the opposing team, along with other family members Authentic Robert Woods Jersey , while discussing his respect for the game. Asked if he really would hit his grandma, he said he "definitely would.""Ramsey talks a big game, but he backs it up with smart, physical play on the back end of arguably the league's top defense," wrote Dennis Waszak, another New York-based AP Football Writer.The Rams acquired Peters in the offseason after he intercepted 19 passes in three seasons with Kansas City. He was suspended for a game late last season by the Chiefs for throwing a penalty flag into the stands.The 25-year-old returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown in a season-opening win over Oakland. Peters has been battling a calf injury."He's tough enough in coverage that he sometimes has to peel off to go pick off his own interceptions," wrote Tennessee-based AP Football Writer Teresa Walker.Peterson has at least one interception in each of his eight seasons with Arizona. At the moment, it appears he will be a bright spot on a bad team with the Cardinals among three winless clubs. Peterson was second to Peters in a close vote last year."For sheer talent, Peterson is the best all-around cornerback in the game," Wilner wrote. "He gets little action in Arizona as the Cardinals struggle to get someone to clamp down the other side of the field."Minnesota's Xavier Rhodes was fourth Robert Woods Jersey Elite , followed by Casey Hayward of the Los Angeles Chargers.

Even though Burfict missed an uncharacteristic four tackles in the game Cincinnati Bengals Hoodie against the Chiefs, the Bengals do not want to him to miss any more time in the future. Not only is Burfict the emotional leader on the defense, but they are already having to replace Vigil for the next few weeks.If the Bengals want to look internally to fill Burfict’s spot, they still have Vincent Rey, Hardy Nickerson, and Malik Jefferson on the 53-man roster. They also have Chris Worley on the practice squad, but the chances of him being promoted appear slim.Out of all the options the Bengals have on their current roster, Rey would make the most sense. He started in place of Burfict for the first three games of 2017 while Burfict was serving a suspension, and has started at all three linebacker spots at one point or another in the last eight years as a Bengal. Rey’s upside is that he is experienced and is one of the team captains, so he could very easily slide into that spot.What is more likely to happen is Nickerson filling in most of the time. He has played quite a bit early on this year, especially when Preston Brown was down with an injury Customized Cincinnati Bengals Jerseys , but has not looked very good in his limited playing time. But for whatever reason, Marvin Lewis keeps sending him out there, so that trend might continue if Burfict can’t get back to the field.Normally, Jordan Evans would be considered here, but he is playing in place of Vigil for the time being. So a likely scenario sans Burfict would be a combination of Nickerson and Rey at WILL, Brown at MIKE, and Evans at SAM. But while the Nickerson/Rey duo will be less than ideal (especially since it will mostly be Nickerson), the Bengals might want to find a free agent to replace Burfict. If Lewis feels that the Bengals can still contend, then this is the best option for the team to if they want to reach the playoffs.So, here is a list of potential free agents that the Bengals could sign. After all, sports journalism is nothing if not speculative.NaVorro BowmanThe former 49er and Raider is the most attractive of the free agents on this list. His injury history is probably what scares most teams off Womens Sam Hubbard Jersey , and it might cause the Bengals to hesitate given how thin they currently are at the position already. But a short-term deal isn’t out of the question for Bowman as the Bengals are just looking for a quick replacement in this scenario.Jonathan CasillasEven though he is 31 years old, Casillas could bring some experience to a room full of young potential. Casillas has never really been anything more than a spot-starter for the Giants, Patriots, Buccaneers, and Saints, as he only has one season where he had double-digit starts. But he has started at least one game in each of his nine NFL seasons, so he could be someone they look to for depth. In this scenario, the Bengals have already decided to stick with Nickerson and/or Rey but just want to add a body to roster in case another linebacker should go down.Shea McClellinThe former first round draft pick is prepared to step away from football, but is staying in shape just in case. McClellin might be coaxed back into the NFL if the Bengals give him a call. McClellin is a veteran that could start or add some depth to the bench, but he is talented enough to start if necessary. He collected 81 tackles in 12 games as a member of the Bears in 2015, but hasn’t played since 2016 with the Patriots.Michael WilhoiteA former teammate of Bowman’s http://www.cincinnatibengalsteamonline.com/sam-hubbard-jersey , Wilhoite would be able to add some experience to the young unit. The 31-year-old has had some good season with the 49ers, getting 227 tackles from 2014-2016. His last season was with the Seahawks was not up to his standards, but he can become a valuable backup or emergency starter for the Bengals.Lawrence TimmonsA long time Steeler, Lawrence Timmons could go the way of James Harrison and join his former division rival. Most recently a member of the Dolphins, Timmons has plenty of experience and talent. Even though he is at the ripe age of 32, half a season of rest might do well for him. He had a down year in 2017 and only recorded 84 tackles. He has had over 100 tackles six times in his career, but if the Bengals call, he could add onto his total of 1,035 that he has accumulated over the course of his 11-year career. Who would you like to see the Bengals sign?Bengals RB Giovani Bernard out several weeks due to MCL injury The Bengals won’t be seeing the backfield duo of Giovani Bernard and Joe Mixon for at least a few more weeks.Just as Mixon is set to return from minor knee surgery, Bernard will miss the next 2-4 weeks due to an MCL sprain, according to Tom Pelissero.Bernard left in the fourth quarter of the win in Atlanta and couldn’t finish Authentic Sam Hubbard Jersey , though he later said that was due to fatigue, so it’s unclear when this injury happened. He’s been the starting running back in each of the past two weeks, and he played a big role in the Bengals’ comeback win over the Falcons. Mixon started in Weeks 1-2 and ran 38 times for 179 yards and a touchdown before injuring his knee against the Ravens. Bernard got just one carry in Week 1, but since Mixon’s Week 2 injury, Bernard has played well as the starter. He has 34 carries for 155 yards and three scores this season.With Bernard out, rookie running back Mark Walton figures to remain the No. 2 back, though it’s possible we finally see Thomas Rawls this week. Rawls has yet to be active in a game since joining the team in Week 3.

For the last four or five seasons we’ve watched this team make what we thought was progress, only to take a huge step back right when they had a chance to assert dominance.After a chance for a huge road http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-taylor-gabriel-jersey win and a 4-1 record, now they return to Chicago and have to host a surging Patriots squad and try to avoid falling back to .500.All is not lost though. The Bears’ offense looks like its hitting its stride and Mitch Trubisky’s play from the Tampa Bay game didn’t take a steep drop off.Were there some bad throws? Absolutely. Should that be expected in the guy’s 17th start? Yes. But the good out-weighed the bad. He shook off a bad first half and dialed in to lead the offense to 28 second-half points, unfortunately, it was the one game where that wasn’t enough for the Bears defense.Stock upTarik Cohen, RB - I realize that his stock is high and that fans know what to expect from him, but he turned in a second straight game with over 100 scrimmage yards and a touchdown. He is out there making big plays and generally being a pain in defense’s rear ends. He still needs to improve his ability to take a cut and not lose yards and he also needs to improve his sideline discipline.Allen Robinson II, WR - Robinson has been quietly solid all season, despite stats that aren’t eye-popping. He turned in a touchdown for the second straight game and his highest yards since week two. I think Robinson is poised for a breakout game, especially with Taylor Gabriel balling out on the other side of the field. Robinson will get an 8-catch 100+ yard game soon. I feel it.Roquan Smith, ILB - Smith turned in six solo tackles and 13 combined. While his game lacked splash and impact plays, he was all over the field on a day where the Bears defense looked sluggish. He missed a couple tackles, but who on the defense didn’t miss any?Stock downEddie Jackson, S - Jackson had his worst game of the season Sunday. He was missing tackles and just overall looked like he was standing in concrete. Cody Parkey, K - Yes, it was the tail end of his range Trey Burton Jersey , but this is exactly what the Bears paid him $9 million guaranteed for. Of course they should have tried for extra yards but at the end of the day, the kicker has to execute. He was familiar with the stadium and the conditions.Leonard Floyd, OLB - I was unfairly hard on Floyd a couple of weeks ago. I have come around to thinking he was playing pretty well, especially against the run. However, on Sunday he took a horrible unnecessary roughness penalty and he mustered just three tackles. That’s all overlooking his roughing the passer penalty, which was ticky-tack and a bad call.Who stood out to you? Who did you have anger for? This was finally the game Bears’ fans have wanted to see from the team, particularly the offense, all year. Not only was there another dominating performance by the defense, but Mitch Trubisky had his first explosive arrival on the scene since the Bears drafted him a year ago.While the Tampa Bay defense has been generous to opposing QBs, it’s still nice to see Trubisky exploit that. An average or bad QB would struggle to do as well as Trubisky did on Sunday.The defense was its usual bad self: Forcing fumbles, picking off passes and just generally being disruptive and aggressive until they called off the dogs and allowed a garbage time TD.There was a lot of good this week, so it might be tough to find three players for the ‘stock down’ portion of this article, but there are things to be done! I would say then, take any criticism through the lens of a 38-point victory rather than strong criticism of a bad player.And for clarity’s sake: Khalil Mack is not on the list because I am trying to highlight improved and struggling players, but Mack’s stock cannot go higher right now. He is simply the best player on the field whenever he is on it. Pretty simple there.Stock upMitchell Trubisky, QB - How could a record setting performance Authentic Cody Parkey Jersey , especially after the struggles and lumps of the first three games, go unnoticed? This was the breakout performance and hopefully the sign of what’s to come. Granted, we know he can’t throw five first half TDs every single week, but this is hopefully the confidence boost he needed to turn the corner. Take advantage of a weak opponent and use it to get your head right and hopefully the game is beginning to slow down for him. Very promising.Eddie Jackson, S - For the second week in a row Jackson found himself in a position to make a play on the ball. On his interception he broke from about six yards back of Mike Evans, just as Ryan Fitzpatrick cocked to throw, and closed for the pick. Jackson has rarely been out of position. In fact, since a couple of missed tackles in the first couple of games, he’s really been mistake free. He’s a great playmaker in the secondary.Taylor Gabriel, WR - I realize that this isn’t so much as a change Gabriel has made, as I think he’s been open a lot through the first three games, this is more on Trubisky actually delivering throws. However, I still thought Gabriel warranted a shout out. He had a career high in yards (104), receptions (7) and matched a career high in touchdowns in a game (2). He previous highs in yards and catches came as a rookie when he was on the Browns back in 2014. Gabriel adds a different dimension to this offense and I think he’s looking to prove he’s more than a speed threat.Honorable mentions: Kyle Fuller, Cohen, Aaron LynchStock downJordan Howard http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-anthony-miller-jersey , RB - I am not worried about Howard, yet. I think this week is more of an indictment of the game plan (Nagy seemed to see something in Tampa’s D that favored the match up Tarik Cohen gave them) and the fact that the one thing Tampa’s defense actually does well is stop opposing running backs. Howard will get going, but this wasn’t his strongest outing.More to consider on that from Lorin Cox:Kevin White, WR - This isn’t exactly a surprise, but at the same time, with Anthony Miller down, it was surprising to see that White earned an increase in snaps but no targets. He played well when he did, throwing a block on a screen, but he’s still a non-factor in the passing game. Kevin Toliver, CB - Toliver was put in a tough spot and he didn’t do terribly. He was always going to be targeted a ton with Prince Amukamara out and Kyle Fuller locking down Mike Evans most of the day. He was on DeSean Jackson on his 47 yard catch, and was also targeted on Evans’ 13-yard twisting grab. He had some tough assignments, and the damage could have been much worse, but someone had to be here.Who did I miss? Who made your list; good and bad?

That doesn't mean there are no issues to address.For coach Sean McVay Brandin Cooks Jersey , it starts with himself.McVay was again critical of his own play calling, this time in the Rams' 23-20 win at the Denver Broncos on Sunday, believing it to be responsible for continued struggles by the offense in the red zone and a season-high five sacks of quarterback Jared Goff."To be 6-0 in this league is really hard, but we want to focus on our process, our standard of performance, and that's focusing on getting better and getting better as the season progresses," McVay said Monday night. "Nobody stops the season after six weeks. If they did and they said this is when everything is finalized, then, hey, maybe we could enjoy it and appreciate that Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey , but there is a lot of football left."The Rams scored just two touchdowns in five trips into the red zone. Despite averaging 32.7 points per game, the third-highest total in the league, they have scored touchdowns on just 56.7 percent of red-zone possessions.McVay blamed his failure to stick with the flow of the game for those issues. He pointed to the fourth play of the game when he called a first-down pass from the Denver 12. Goff's throw to running back Todd Gurley was incomplete, and it led to the Rams settling for a 26-yard field goal by Cairo Santos."Anytime that you're in the role that I am, our job is to put the players in the best spots," McVay said. "You don't want to waste plays. My gut told me to take a timeout in that instance, and I didn't do it and it led to us not executing the way we are accustomed to. That's a result of the operation that starts with me, and that's an instance right there."McVay also said his approach was responsible for the pressure Goff faced, with Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb taking advantage. One call McVay cited had a tight end as the primary blocker on the fifth overall selection in the 2018 draft, while another at the start of a two-minute drill was too slow developing to keep Chubb at bay.The Rams had allowed a total of six sacks in their first five games Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey , but Chubb had three of Denver's five."I do think it's unfair to the linemen to think that those were a result of their actual production when, in fact, most of those to me are pegged on some of the plays and spots I put our guys in," McVay said.McVay said the onus is on himself to continue to improve, looking for the same high standard he asks of his players."Those plays didn't work out in our favor, but they didn't really go in alignment with some of the flow and the feel of the game with the way we were running the football, and those are things you hopefully get better with and learn from experience," McVay said.Still, McVay is pleased the Rams continue to find ways to overcome adversity. It is a trend he hopes continues at the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday."Can't say enough about how resilient and what a great job guys have done finishing out games, finding a way to get wins http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-john-johnson-jersey , but our focus and concentration is on now getting ready for a tough division opponent," McVay said.But as the wins keep piling up for the Rams, so do the injuries.Wide receiver Cooper Kupp sustained a sprained knee when he his left leg bent back awkwardly on a horse-collar tackle by Broncos safety Darian Stewart.Kupp, who leads the team with five touchdown receptions, is not likely to play at the 49ers on Sunday and is week to week."Unfortunate for Cooper that he probably will miss this week, but thank goodness that it wasn't something that looked like it could be season-ending," McVay said.Left guard Rodger Saffold also sustained a sprained knee. Outside linebacker Matt Longacre was limited because of back spasms, and defensive end Michael Brockers sustained a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. However, McVay does not believe any of those injuries are serious.Random Ramsdom 10/10: Yucks with Austin Blythe 5-0, but where do the Rams stand in the CBS rankings?I CBS SportsSo Samson Ebukam Jersey , if the Rams sit atop the rankings can we get Week 5 rings made?

It’s been a while since they’ve been really good. They sometimes seem to toil in anonymity as https://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/leighton-vander-esch-jersey far as NFL franchises go. And they are the Cowboys next opponent. The Tennessee Titans come into the game against the Cowboys with many similarities to their host. Both teams are 3-4. Both teams play outstanding scoring defense. Both teams struggle to put points on the board on offense. Both have young quarterbacks who have at times looked like the future Youth Taco Charlton Jersey , and at other times have struggled. So what’s going with the Titans? Let’s check in and see since it’s not a team that is a natural rival and the Cowboys haven’t played the Titans in four years.The Titans come in on a downturn in their fortunes after the starting the season hot. Additionally, they didn’t make a move at the trade deadline.As you can imagine, some of the fanbase is not happy with the team doing nothing at the deadline.The Cowboys fanbase got a little injection of hope when the team traded for Amari Cooper and fired Paul Alexander. We’ll have to wait and see if that pans out or was fool’s gold, but the Titans fanbase, or at least some of it, seemed resolved to a mediocre fate.So what are some of the issues for the Titans? Well, the play of quarterback Marcus Mariota has been in question. He has been dealing with an injury but seems to be healed up now.One of the biggest concerns for the Titans is their inability to score touchdowns. Mariota was asked what they needed to improve on.It might be tough for them again this week as the Cowboys defense is excelling in the redzone.On the other side of the ball, the Cowboys need to have one guy on their mind.On the back end of their defense, they have another pretty good player.Some quick nuggets about the Titans.They don’t run the ball particularly well. They also struggle with passing downfield.You do have to keep an eye on Mariota as he can beat you with his legs like Dak Prescott.The Cowboys and Titans definitely come into this game with a lot of similarities. One difference is the Cowboys made big moves during their bye week, the Titans stood pat after putting out feelers but not liking the prices required to grab a player. The Cowboys are favored by a range of 4 to 6.5 points through various oddsmakers. If Dallas is going to have any chance of making a playoff run, it starts on Monday night. Jason Garrett's Dallas Cowboys and Jay Gruden's Washington Redskins have been the very definition of mediocre as the NFC East teams resume their rivalry.The Cowboys are 3-3, while the Redskins head into Sunday's home game leading the so-so NFC East at 3-2 and with an 18-18-1 mark since the start of the 2016 season.Neither club has managed to win two games in a row in 2018. Neither has dropped two in a row, either. They just keep alternating W's and L's.Something has to give, because both are coming off victories."It's been a minute since I've had back-to-back wins http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/antwaun-woods-jersey-cheap ," Redskins left tackle Trent Williams said. "It's very important for this team, for the confidence of this team."The Cowboys look at it the same way, and they are well aware of the disparity between how they perform when at home (3-0) and away (0-3).Garrett and Gruden have been criticized for various flaws, but both might have earned some breathing room with what happened in Week 6 against opponents who entered with winning records and strengths that would seem to be trouble for the weaknesses exhibited by Dallas and Washington.Having been embarrassed by Drew Brees just six days earlier, then forced to deal with Cam Newton and a Carolina offense coming off a pair of 30-point outings, the Redskins relied on their defense to beat the Panthers 23-17. Up against a talented Jacksonville Jaguars defense, and coming off a 16-point effort, Dak Prescott led the offensively challenged Cowboys to a surprising 40-7 triumph."I've said it before," said running back Ezekiel Elliott, who is second in the NFL in rushing with 586 yards. "If we don't build on it, everything we did last week really means nothing."Here are some things to know about the Cowboys and Redskins:SCHEDULING BREAKSThe Redskins do not play a team the rest of the way that currently has a record above .500. Their opponents' combined mark, including Dallas, is 27-38, a .415 winning percentage. Dallas' slate is not much tougher Cheap Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , although it does have to play New Orleans, which is 4-1. Still, the foes lined up on the Cowboys' remaining schedule began this week at 25-31, a .446 winning percentage.WHAT'S THE POINT?The Redskins and Cowboys are having trouble putting up points. They both rank among the 10 lowest-scoring teams, with Washington at 21.2 per game, and Dallas 20.5. The Cowboys' number plummets to 12.3 on the road.MR. SMITH IN WASHINGTONAlex Smith hardly has been a solution at QB for the Redskins, and Gruden was rather pointed in discussing his new guy's play. Smith's passer rating of 91.9 is barely ahead of the much-maligned Eli Manning's 90.9. "There are some things we've got to clean up. Get his eyes in certain progressions a little bit quicker and maybe get off some a little bit quicker," Gruden said about Smith. "Sometimes he hangs on too long, giving guys too much of a chance, where he needs get off of them, get to the next guy."RUNNING DAKRunning isn't anything new for Dallas QB Dak Prescott; it just seems more important with the Cowboys learning to live without Jason Witten and Dez Bryant in the passing game.The 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year ran for a career-best 82 yards last week; Roger Staubach, with 90 in 1971, is the only Cowboys quarterback who gained more on the ground in a game. The Cowboys are using more zone read, playing off the strengths of Elliott."Some teams are going to make him hand the ball off; some teams are going to make him keep it Youth Maliek Collins Jersey ," Elliott said about Prescott. "It just depends on what the defense shows you."Sunday's outcome could hinge on Dallas' run game — averaging 147.5 yards per game, No. 2 in the league — vs. Washington's run defense, which allows 90.2 per game.YOUNG 'BACKERSTwo-time Pro Bowl linebacker Sean Lee could miss a fourth consecutive game with a hamstring injury, but for the first time in several years, the Cowboys feel as if they have adequate replacements. Leighton Vander Esch leads the team with 60 tackles, and middle linebacker Jaylon Smith has 57.Nobody else has more than 35. Vander Esch is a rookie first-round draft pick from Boise State, where he was a walk-on. Smith was a second-rounder in 2016 after a devastating knee injury in his final game at Notre Dame."Each of those guys, they are playing more snaps," Garrett said. "They are seeing these different situations. They are becoming more confident football players."AP Pro Football Writer Schuyler Dixon in Frisco, Texas, and AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno in Ashburn, Va., contributed to this report.

He didn’t see David Moore running open behind him in the back of the end zone https://www.chargersfanstore.com/hats , and as the pass floated past, Addae reached out his right arm as far as he could.“I got my last fingernail on it,” Addae said. “I barely snipped it.”Another last-second challenge for the Los Angeles Chargers defense. Another victory for the surging Chargers, holding off Wilson’s late rally for a 25-17 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.The Chargers won their fifth straight, putting a capper on Philip Rivers‘ 200th consecutive start with another clutch defensive stand. Rivers threw two touchdowns, Melvin Gordon ran for 113 yards, yet those two were standing on the sideline watching after a pass interference call against Michael Davis on the final play of regulation gave Seattle an untimed down and a chance to force overtime.And just like they did in London when the Chargers denied Tennessee’s 2-point conversion attempt to preserve a 20-19 win, the defense came through again.“It shouldn’t have come down to that but it did,” Rivers said. “We found a way to win. These kinds of wins are huge.”Rivers threw touchdown passes of 12 yards to Tyrell Williams and 30 yards to Mike Williams, and let the Chargers defense stymie Wilson until the final minutes. Seattle had won four of five following a 0-2 start. Desmond King provided the deciding points for Los Angeles (6-2) by stepping in front of Wilson’s pass for Moore and returning it 42 yards for a touchdown with 6:44 remaining to give the Chargers a 25-10 lead.Wilson managed to make the final minutes nervous for Los Angeles.“We had a chance to win a game that’s right there for us,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “It was going to be dramatic, but we’re OK about that.”Wilson hit Nick Vannett on a 6-yard TD with 1:50 remaining to cut the Chargers’ lead to one score. Seattle got the ball back with 1:24 left at its own 22 and after two completions and a roughing the passer penalty on Melvin Ingram, the Seahawks were at the Chargers 44 with 50 seconds left. Wilson scrambled for 16 yards to the Chargers 28 and, after a spike, Seattle had 30 seconds left.Seattle (4-4) got a break when Davis was called for pass interference in the end zone on the final play of regulation against Tyler Lockett Chargers Hoodie , putting the ball at the 1 for an untimed down. Seattle’s J.R. Sweezy was called for false start backing the play up to the 6, and Wilson’s final attempt for Moore in the back of the end zone was partially tipped by Addae and fell incomplete.“It’s like winning a playoff game,” Chargers defensive lineman Brandon Mebane said. “That was like a playoff game.”Wilson was 26 of 39 for 235 yards, and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Jaron Brown on Seattle’s opening drive.Rivers became the fourth quarterback in league history to start 200 straight games, joining Brett Favre, Eli Manning and Peyton Manning. Favre started an NFL-record 297 straight times in the regular season. This wasn’t like his 2010 performance in Seattle when Rivers threw for 455 yards, but he made key throws at important times, especially in the first half. The Chargers averaged 10 yards per play in the first half and scored touchdowns on three of their five possessions, the last one taking just 55 seconds to find the end zone on a 30-yard catch-and-run by Mike Williams.Gordon averaged 7.1 yards per carry and ran through huge holes in the second half. His 34-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter gave him 34 TDs in his past 36 games after going scoreless in his first 14 games.Seattle also didn’t have answers for Keenan Allen, who had 124 yards on six receptions.“It’s great, any time we can go on the road, loudest place in the league and get a win the way we did,” Allen said. “I thought it was dominating, outside the points we missed, but pretty great.”INJURIESCarson didn’t play much after the first quarter Doug Flutie Color Rush Jersey , spending most of the time on the sideline with a wrap on his upper left leg due to a hip injury. Carson had 40 yards on eight carries before going to the bench. … Seattle played the second half without starting strong safety Bradley McDougald due to a knee injury.

And just a few minutes after signing his deal https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Ethan-Westbrooks-Jersey , Donald was at work on the Los Angeles Rams‘ practice fields for the first time in months, determined to keep doing the same things that made him so very wealthy.The All-Pro defensive tackle agreed to a six-year, $135 million deal, ending his second consecutive preseason holdout with a landmark commitment from the Rams.“I feel good right now,” Donald said. “To be back out here playing football again, that’s what it is all about. Long process and a long wait. It was tough. Definitely it was tough for me, having a love for the game, having to push that to the side and handle the business side.”The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year is signed through 2024, and the Rams’ defense can rest solidly on its cornerstone as Los Angeles attempts to capitalize on last season’s success with a Super Bowl run.ESPN and the NFL Network reported the new deal includes a $40 million signing bonus and $87 million guaranteed. Donald is already under contract this season for $6.89 million in the final year of his rookie deal.“It’s a blessing,” Donald said of his new deal, which surpasses Von Miller‘s contract in Denver as the new benchmark for defenders. “Growing up thinking about playing in the NFL, you never think that big, or expect something like that. But my dad told me since Day One, hard work pays off. I’m going to continue to work nonstop.”After skipping the Rams’ entire offseason program and training camp, Donald started work right away, even showing up at the Rams’ training complex to sign his contract earlier than scheduled Friday morning. When he joined practice later, the Rams finally got to see Donald alongside newcomer Ndamukong Suh and veteran Michael Brockers on their potentially destructive defensive line.Earlier this week, Rams coach Sean McVay said Donald should be able to play in the Rams’ Monday night regular-season opener in Oakland on Sept. 10 if he signed within the next few days. Donald has been working out at home in Pittsburgh during his holdout, and McVay checked in regularly with him.“I feel good, but I’ve still got to get in football mode, as far as pass rushing moves and just knocking the rust off a little bit,” Donald said. “But that will come in a couple of days.”The Rams managed to maintain a civil relationship with Donald throughout the two years of difficult negotiations. Donald and his representatives were determined to make him one of the NFL’s highest-paid players at any position, but the Rams wanted to reward Donald while keeping their overall salary structure intact.“I don’t think you were ever miles apart,” Rams general manager Les Snead said. “Everybody with common sense knew Aaron Donald was, at minimum, going to be the highest-paid defensive player in football. From there, you had to figure it out.”Since his rookie season in St. Louis as the 13th overall pick in the draft, the 27-year-old Pitt product has been one of the NFL’s most dominant linemen with remarkable effectiveness against the run and the pass.The compact powerhouse was chosen for the Pro Bowl after each of his four seasons Torry Holt Jersey , and he was a key component of Los Angeles’ extraordinary one-year turnaround under McVay in 2017. With Donald adapting quickly to new veteran coordinator Wade Phillips despite missing training camp, the Rams won their division for the first time since 2003 and ended the franchise’s streaks of 13 consecutive non-winning seasons and 12 straight non-playoff seasons.Although Donald has 39 sacks in four NFL seasons, traditional statistics don’t reflect the full measure of his disruptive play on the line. Phillips rhapsodizes about Donald’s ability to force opposing offenses into bad decisions by his ability to wreck any blocking scheme with his low, ferocious charges through the line.But Donald also took a hard line in negotiating his football future: Along with his training camp holdouts, he also skipped the Rams’ entire offseason program this year. He didn’t report last year until the day before the regular-season opener, forcing him to miss the Rams’ first game.He still was named the NFL’s top defensive player despite playing in only 14 games, racking up 11 sacks and 41 tackles while forcing five fumbles for the NFC West champions. He also led the NFL with 91 quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus.Donald now must learn how to play alongside Suh after the five-time Pro Bowl selection joined the Rams as a free agent in March. They’ll work together on a revamped defense that also includes new cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.“It’s interesting, ’cause it’s always been on paper, right?” Snead said. “Oh, Aaron Donald paired with Brockers and Suh and everyone else and the DBs. But to see him on the practice field now beside (Brockers), besides (Suh), with Aqib, you’re like, ‘OK, wait a minute. Here’s what we set out to do.’ And now you just look forward to going and playing a game.”With Donald in camp, the Rams finally have their near-term roster settled while still maintaining significant room on their payroll for 2019 鈥?just in time for quarterback Jared Goff to reach the fourth year of his rookie deal with the chance to negotiate a long-term contract.Los Angeles demonstrated its willingness to pay top dollar for talent in recent months by acquiring those three defensive stars and agreeing to lucrative long-term deals with NFL Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley, receiver Brandin Cooks and right tackle Rob Havenstein.Yet those deals also were structured to make sure Donald could get the contract he deserved.“They all made some sort of sacrifice for this moment,” Snead said of Gurley, Cooks and Havenstein. “They didn’t take less money. They just may have delayed some gratification, because we always said, ‘We have this room in the budget and we need to save it, and this is the goal.'”___ Having already played back on October 7th, this is our second Seattle Seahawks scouting report of the month, so let’s look at what has transpired since the Rams narrow victory in the Pacific Northwest a month ago. With the San Francisco 49ers crippled by injuries and the Arizona Cardinals developing a rookie quarterback, the Seahawks have emerged as the clear number two team in the NFC West this season, with an outside chance to challenge for a Wildcard spot in the playoffs. After replacing offensive line coach Tom Cable with Mike Solari, and bringing in guards D.J Fluker and J.R Sweezy Eric Dickerson Color Rush Jersey , Seattle’s offensive line has been an improved unit this season, and has helped establish one of the league’s most effective ground attacks. With three capable running backs in Chris Carson, Mike Davis, and Rashaad Penny, the Seahawks can gash a defense with fresh legs throughout a game. Last time the Seahawks met the Rams, they were able to roll to a season high 190 yards. That stat clearly didn’t sit well with Aaron Donald and the gang, and neither did some of right guard DJ Fluker’s post game brags about physicality, so it’ll be interesting to see how this week’s game shakes out. Unfortunately for the Seahawks, they will likely be without the services of Chris Carson, who has clearly been their most most dominant back so far. In the team’s first matchup, Seattle relied heavily on their running backs, but also had some big play success against cornerback Marcus Peters. Fresh off another frustrating outing in New Orleans against Michael Thomas, Marcus Peters will be looking for redemption; but will that mean more gambling and looking for picks or playing a more conservative careful game? Keep an eye on Peters this week. The Rams offense was able to move the ball at will against Seattle a month ago, and that was with Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks missing much of the game in concussion protocol. If Rams’ left tackle Andrew Whitworth can control his matchup with defensive end Frank Clark, it will greatly help Jared Goff work against a pretty competent Seattle secondary. In the first game the Seahawks missed linebacker K.J. Wright, but he should be good to go this Sunday. The Seahawks are also hoping Bradley McDougald can play despite a banged up knee, especially since Earl Thomas is out for the remainder of the season. Despite the Rams success against them, overall the Seahawks defense has held up pretty well this season, and have talent at all three levels. Linebackers Bobby Wagner, KJ Wright, and Barkevious Mingo can make plenty of plays in front of a good pair of safeties in Tedric Thompson and Bradley McDougald. Up front the Seahawks aren’t loaded with household names like the Rams, but they are a fairly deep unit that features ends Frank Clark, and Quinton Jefferson sandwiching tackles Jaren Reed and Shamar Stephen.The Seashawks are currently fifth in points allowed and sixth in passing yards allowed. Their run defense is significantly worse than what the Saints presented a week ago, so Sunday might be a good day for the Rams’ Todd Gurley. And there’s your Week 10 scouting report that failed to mention one great and frustrating equalizer that could help the Seahawks put some scare into the Coliseum crowd on Sunday. His name is Russell Wilson, he plays quarterback, and he’s very good at football. Might wanna keep an eye on him.

They had ten more first downs. They ran 14 more plays. They won the time of possession battle. They averaged 1.2 yards per play more than the Saints. They held Drew Brees Kyle Rudolph Jersey , the NFL’s all-time leading passer, to 120 yards and picked him off for the first time this season. Kirk Cousins had 359 yards, two touchdowns, and a 107.7 passer rating. Both Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen had over 100 yards and a score.And they still lost by ten points, trailing by double digits for most of the second half.Football is a funny game that way. You can put up all the impressive numbers and yet come out on the losing end if you make crucial mistakes at the wrong time. That’s just what the Vikings did en route to a home loss to the Saints in which they were their own worst enemy. With so many key players missing and such a dangerous opponent, it wasn’t all that surprising that the Vikings allowed 30 points and lost the game. I predicted just that on Thursday. How they lost was the more disheartening part of the equation. During the three-game win streak the Vikings had snapped on Sunday night, we saw glimpses of what this team has the potential to be, but the specters of inconsistency still loomed. Those apparitions came to the forefront against the Saints. Let’s take our weekly review of which plays made the biggest difference in the outcome.Play 1: Saints ball, 3rd & 2 at the New Orleans 27. First quarter, 13:34 remaining. (Shotgun) D.Brees pass deep right to M.Thomas pushed ob at NO 47 for 20 yards (T.Waynes). Minnesota challenged the pass completion ruling, and the play was Upheld. The ruling on the field was confirmed. (Timeout #1.)While most of what we’re going to cover today will be the self-inflicted Vikings wounds, it’s important to remember that the Saints are a very good football team with some incredibly talented weapons. They showed that on the third play of the game with this toss from Brees to Michael Thomas.Trae Waynes had excellent coverage, but Thomas was still able to leap for the grab and get both heels in bounds. Instead of a three and out to start the game, the Saints kept the drive alive. Five plays later, Brees sent a quick shovel pass to Alvin Kamara and New Orleans opened the game with a touchdown instead of a punt.The Vikings did better than most defenses against Thomas and Kamara; Thomas had five grabs for 81 yards and Kamara had 76 total yards on 20 touches. Although Kamara did find the end zone twice, that’s a respectable performance against two of the most dynamic players in the NFL. But it’s hard to beat a team like the Saints when you can’t quit getting in your own way.Play 2: Vikings ball, 1st & 10 at the Minnesota 40. Second quarter, 7:06 remaining. (No Huddle) L.Murray right tackle to NO 37 for 23 yards (M.Williams). PENALTY on MIN-P.Elflein, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at MIN 40 - No Play.The Vikings recovered from the opening drive touchdown to score two of their own: a short pass to Stefon Diggs on fourth and goal and a 1-yard dive by Latavius Murray made the score 13-7 early in the second quarter. (Dan Bailey missed an extra point in a play that should probably go into the honorable mention section of this article.) The Saints were able to get a Wil Lutz field goal to make it 13-10 halfway through the second quarter. Minnesota answered with this huge run by Murray on the first play of the ensuing drive:However Nick Easton Color Rush Jersey , the play was called back for holding by Pat Elflein against Taylor Stallworth. It was a legit call, but one has to wonder whether Murray would have made it through the gap anyway if Elflein didn’t add a little bit extra to his block.Instead of 1st & 10 in New Orleans territory, the Vikings did the following on their next three plays:A sack where Sheldon Rankins ran through Danny Isidora like it was a video game with clipping turned off;A run up the middle to C.J. Ham for 1 yard on 2nd & 25(????); andA pass to Roc Thomas well short of the sticks.Instead of being in great position to add to their lead, the Vikings had to boot the ball away. Thankfully, the Vikings defense was able to get it right back. Stephen Weatherly pressured Drew Brees into throwing his first interception of the season to Harrison Smith. The Vikings were in business again late in the half with the opportunity to score and get the ball again to start the third quarter. It was a great chance to create some space between themselves and their opponents.Instead, what happened was a 14-point swing that the Vikings never recovered from.Play 3: Vikings ball, 1st & 10 at the New Orleans 18. Second quarter, 1:11 remaining. (Shotgun) K.Cousins pass short left to A.Thielen to NO 14 for 4 yards (A.Anzalone). FUMBLES (A.Anzalone), RECOVERED by NO-M.Lattimore at NO 13. M.Lattimore to MIN 33 for 54 yards (L.Treadwell). PENALTY on MIN-L.Treadwell, Unsportsmanlike Conduct, 15 yards, enforced at MIN 33.Adam Thielen had the first hiccup of what has otherwise been an amazing season, and it couldn’t have come at a more inopportune time.P.J. Williams, who spent the majority of the night getting roasted by Thielen and Diggs, made the first of two very important plays by lodging the ball loose after the completion. Marshon Lattimore took it all the way to the Vikings 33. Laquon Treadwell took it 15 yards farther with a boneheaded unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Two plays later, Kamara was in the end zone for the second time. Instead of heading to the locker room up 16-10 or 20-10, the Vikings trailed 17-13 at the half. It was a shell-shocking moment the normally resilient team never seemed to recover from.Of course, maybe things could have been different if the Vikings didn’t go to a draft pick they have never recovered from on their next important play.Play 4: Vikings ball, 4th & 1 at the Minnesota 45. Third quarter, 12:33 remaining. (Shotgun) K.Cousins pass incomplete short middle to L.Treadwell (M.Lattimore).On the first drive of the second half, Mike Zimmer faced a tough decision after Diggs was stopped just short of the marker on third down. He made the bold choice to go for it in his own territory. The call was justified. Whether the motivation was Zimmer trying to keep the explosive Saints offense on the field https://www.minnesotavikingsshop.com/Xavier-Rhodes-Jersey , or trying to gain the momentum back, or simply embracing the analytics that say going for it more often is a good idea, the aggressiveness was admirable. The execution left a bit to be desired.First of all, spreading out into an empty backfield with no threat of a run was curious. Secondly, I sincerely doubt that going to Treadwell against Lattimore was the most appealing matchup. Aldrick Robinson looked open right away on the short hook. Thielen looked to be in a favorable position against linebacker Demario Davis; if Cousins was able to lead a pass to the outside, Thielen could have had a big gain. However, Cousins’ time in the pocket was limited thanks to Marcus Davenport sprinting past Rashod Hill. The throw could have been placed better, and Lattimore got his hand to the ball nicely after it arrived, but it’s still something that Treadwell should come down with. The Saints added three more points after the turnover on downs and the Vikings would never come closer for the rest of the game. The second play of the following Minnesota drive made sure of that.Play 5: Vikings ball, 2nd & 8 at the Minnesota 44. Third quarter, 6:08 remaining. (Shotgun) K.Cousins pass short middle intended for S.Diggs INTERCEPTED by P.Williams at MIN 45. P.Williams for 45 yards, TOUCHDOWN.The moment we all realized there would be no second miracle.Cousins attempted to sidestep the oncoming pressure and deliver a sidearm pass to Diggs. Problem is, Diggs stopped his route. With all the traffic in front of him, Cousins didn’t realize this until Williams was galloping into the end zone to give the Saints a 14-point lead.Diggs has taken the blame for stopping short on his route, and Mike Zimmer has scolded players for taking individual blame since it’s a team sport. Either way, the miscommunication effectively ended any chance of the Vikings pulling out a win.At 4-3-1, the Vikings remain firmly in the race for the muddled NFC North with three straight division games on the horizon. The upcoming stretch of their season will likely decide their postseason fate. At the halfway mark, this doesn’t exactly look like a team poised for a deep run in January. However, there is still plenty of potential, plenty of returning injured starters, and plenty of time to clean up the crippling mistakes that have plagued them at times. We’ll see if they can pull it off Ben Gedeon Color Rush Jersey , starting with next week’s game against the Lions.As always, we welcome you to vote in the poll to tell us which play you thought was the biggest and encourage you to suggest any we may have missed in the comments. Since the National Football League relaxed the rules on touchdown celebrations a couple of seasons ago, the Minnesota Vikings have come up with a couple of good ones. The best one, to this point, is probably the “Duck, Duck, Gray Duck” celebration that they broke out on a Monday night in Chicago last season, but Sunday night’s victory over the Green Bay Packers brought forth a potentially worthy challenger.Following the 26-yard touchdown reception by Dalvin Cook in the first quarter. . .Cook’s first touchdown since Week 4 of 2017 (the game that he tore his ACL). . .the Vikings busted out a good, old-fashioned limbo party. Adam Thielen served as the “bar,” lifted into place by Tom Compton, Rashod Hill, and Laquon Treadwell. Cook, Stefon Diggs, and Brian O’Neill then took turns doing the limbo underneath him. . .though based on the way that O’Neill went through, I’m not sure if he’s ever actually limboed before.Asked after the game about the celebration, Thielen said that the lightest guy (who would have been Diggs) was supposed to serve as the bar, but Cook really wanted to do the celebration and Diggs wasn’t right there right away, so Thielen stepped into the role instead.What did you think of the touchdown celebration? Does it go to the top of the list?

Unless you’re either undefeated or a one-loss team at this point, this one’s to stay alive in the playoff hunt. Also, if you are undefeated, odds are https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Rex-Burkhead-Jersey you either play in a league of casuals, or you just drafted the entire Kansas City Chiefs roster. Which, if so, your boldness should be respected.Although if you did draft all the Chiefs, you’re most likely already writing this week off as an L, since they’re on bye. That’s the price you pay for your Faustian pact with the second-best barbecue city in the country.All right, enough nonsense, we’re all jonesing to get back to Patriots football this week, and odds are you’ve got at least a few Patriots in your lineup. New England’s also coming off that teabagging in Music City USA that, as bad as it was in real life, actually turned out to be a halfway decent day for a few Pats, fantasy-wise.Oh, and it’s Jets week. In Jersey. The Jets D/ST is actually the 14th-ranked unit in fantasy as of right now, so don’t give them the credit of being the Jets of the early ‘10s. Like they say in that Ataris cover of the Boys of Summer, those days are gone forever, you should just let ‘em go.As we do, let’s start with the running backs.(FYI James Harrison Jersey , for positional rankings, I’m going off Fantasy Pros, which aggregates a whole bunch of expert rankings. You probably knew that already, and if you didn’t, congrats, Pats Pulpit just made you smarter. You’re welcome.)Running BacksJames White, RBStandard Scoring Rank this week: 17th in running backsPPR Scoring Rank this week: 9th in running backsOne of the great simple pleasures this season if you were lucky/smart enough (AHEM *points to myself*) to draft James White has been checking your scores after the Pats wrap up and seeing something like this:8 attempts, 15 rushing yards, 15 points.Those sweet, sweet receiving yards from Sweet Feet. They add up. Quicker than a bar tab, I might add. This is the James White that put the Pats on his back in the Super Bowl and has earned every dime of his post-28-3 contract extension as an all-around offensive weapon. Even if White only gets a half-dozen carries a game, his Rocky-montage training has turned him into just as trusted of a threat as Kevin Faulk back in the day. Did we mention he’s actually the 9th-highest scoring RB in fantasy this year? I don’t need to tell you to start him. You’re smart enough to know that. And you know what? You’re pretty darn good-looking too!Sony Michel, RBStandard Scoring Rank this week: 19th in running backsPPR Scoring Rank this week: 19th in running backsYou know what those rankings tell you? The experts don’t think Sony’s gonna be catching balls like Matt Forte out there, and that’s OK. After a lot of us thought New England rushed him back from injury last week, Michel coming off a bye will be a sight for sore eyes for some of you that probably spent a high draft pick on him and may have been struggling and playing backup scrubs while Sony rested up. Unless you’re like one guy in one of my leagues that drafted Leonard Fournette, Kareem Hunt, AND Ezekiel Elliott, Michel’s probably one of the best shots you have, so take the reinforcements with a smile.Rex Burkhead, RBNot eligible to play this week because of IR rules. Don’t be fooled just cause he practiced this week. Wide ReceiversJulian Edelman Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey , WRStandard Scoring Rank this week: 15th in wide receiversPPR Scoring Rank this week: 12th in wide receiversThere’s really two types of fantasy players at the end of the day: ones that live and die by the boom or bust players, and those of us that value consistency over, say, 25 points from DeSean Jackson one week and 2 the next. You want consistency? Check out Jules’ stat line since he came back in week 5:5.7 points vs the Colts12.1 points vs the Chiefs9.6 points vs the Bears11.7 points vs the Bills11.4 points vs the Packers10.6 points vs the TitansEdelman is matchup-proof at this point, and while the odds of him breaking off a 20-point game are somewhere between slim and none, 10 basically guaranteed points a week is nothing to sneeze at.Josh Gordon, WRStandard Scoring Ranking this week: 14th in wide receiversPPR Scoring Ranking this week: 17th in wide receiversHey, did someone say “boom or bust!”That’s what everyone thinks Flash is, right? The jump-ball dude, the long bomb guy, the one that when the Patriots traded what we here at the Pulpit like to call a bag of peanuts everyone went “OF COURSE THEY DID”? This may surprise you: Gordon’s hit double-digit points in 3 of his last 6 games, and he even racked up 8 points in that miserable Titans game. Also, with the Patriots having 2 wide receivers AND 2 running backs ranked top-20 at their positions this week, everyone’s pretty clearly expecting this one to get out of hand pretty quickly.Cordarrelle Patterson, WR (sort of?)Standard Scoring Ranking this week: 95th in wide receiversPPR Scoring Ranking this week: 94thAccording to our pint-size pal Field Yates, you can now play Patterson at wide receiver OR running back........which, that being said, if you’re doing either of those things, odds are things are not looking great for you at the moment. Our condolences.Aside from the Miami and Green Bay games, Patterson’s only gone above 4 points once. You’re (hopefully) better than this.Chris Hogan Jeremy Hill Color Rush Jersey , WRStandard Scoring Ranking this week: 73rd in wide receiversPPR Scoring Ranking this week: 74th in wide receiversHahahaha, good one. Nope.Phillip Dorsett, WRStandard Scoring Ranking this week: below 100 and I’m too lazy to see how much lowerPPR Scoring Ranking this week: see aboveLike the highlights-machine Twitter feed of Fear the Beard says, #FreePhillipDorsett. Till then, you shouldn’t even be thinking about this.Tight EndRob Gronkowski, TEStandard Scoring Ranking this week: 3rd in tight endsPPR Scoring Ranking this week: 5th in tight endsHere’s how much of a wasteland the tight end position is in fantasy these days: Gronk hasn’t played in 3 weeks (counting the bye), clearly wasn’t himself before sitting a few weeks out, put up zero fantasy points against the Bears, and has hit double-digit points just once all year.He’s still the 13th-highest scoring tight end in all of fantasy.Go ahead and play him, cause New England wouldn’t be putting him out there if they weren’t confident he can resume doing Gronk things. GRONK READY.Dwayne Allen, TEDwayne’s out this week, so save your how-many-points-is-blocking-worth jokes for another day.QuarterbackTom Brady, QBStandard Scoring Ranking this week: 9th in quarterbacksOK, yes, I saved this until last on purpose, because if the last few weeks are any indication, this year’s Festivus is going to have a full airing of grievances when it comes to TB12. Here’s the deal: unless you picked up someone like Mitchell Trubisky (who’s out this week anyway), you most likely don’t have anyone better. Brady hasn’t been his normal top-5 fantasy badass lately, but it’s worth noting, like our fearless leader Bernd Buchmasser did earlier this week https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Isaiah-Wynn-Jersey , that Brady’s almost never had Gronkowski, White, Edelman, Michel, and Gordon on the field at the same time this year. Think about that like the scene in Deadpool where they’re shoving clips of ammo into Wade’s Hello Kitty backpack:“That’s about 3,000 rounds”“Well, we all know what I can do with 12”(Warning: *extremely* NSFW)And if we’re lucky, what the Patriots will do to the Jets on Sunday afternoon will be extremely NSFW as well.Good luck and enjoy the game. The Bears opened up a 10-point lead in the second quarter after a pair of Patriots fumbles, but New England was able to rally back to move in front before halftime.Cordarrelle Patterson redeemed one of those fumbles by returning a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown and a five-yard touchdown catch by James White made the score 21-17 Patriots before the break. Patterson’s score came a short time after he gifted the Bears great field position with a fumble, although he may have earned himself a second dressing down for slowing down to high-five J.C. Jackson during the successful return.White’s touchdown capped a 64-yard drive that marked Tom Brady‘s only real work of the second quarter. Patterson’s fumble was followed by running back Sony Michel losing the ball and the Patriots offense only ran three plays from the 7:34 mark of the first quarter through the 9:46 mark of the second quarter.The Patriots, who lost Michel to a knee injury on the same play, only wound up running 8 fewer plays than the Bears and outgained their hosts by 16 yards, so it’s been a pretty good day on defense when the Patriots haven’t started drives backed up in their territory by turnovers. Mitchell Trubisky has had success when he’s pulled the ball down to run, but is 8-of-20 when he’s put the ball in the air.Should he continue to struggle on that front once play resumes, it will likely take more turnovers for the Bears to navigate their way to a win on Sunday.

The 43-37 win helped the Saints improve to 2-1 on the Drew Brees Color Rush Jersey year, and showed the league how potent the offense still is under Drew Brees and Sean Payton. Here’s a look at the snap count detail and playing time percentage for the black and gold. (Note: All data is https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Michael-Thomas-Jersey provided by the NFL)OffenseMax Unger, Ryan Ramczyk, Larry Warford, Josh LeRibeus, Terron Armstead, Drew Brees - 75 (100%)Brees caught fire against the Falcons, going 39-of-49 for 396 yards and 3 touchdowns for a 120.7 rating. The 39-year-old quarterback also had two rushing touchdowns, which included one of the funniest and craziest spin moves I’ve ever seen by a quarterback.Michael Thomas - 75 (95%)Thomas made more NFL history on Sunday, breaking an old receiving record previously held by Julio Jones for most catches through the first three games of the season. His stat line of 10 receptions for 129 yards on 10 targets was simply spectacular, as Thomas leads the NFC and NFL in receiving yardage and receptions.Alvin Kamara - 67 (85%)Kamara had a really busy day with 31 total touches. He had 16 rushes for 66 yards, which was just over 4 yards/carry (long of 17), but it was his receiving that made all the difference in the world for the Saints offense. Kamara was targeted a whopping 20 times by Brees, finishing with 15 receptions for 124 yards. He’s third in receptions and sixth in yards right now.Ted Ginn Jr. - 52 (66%)Outside of the first drive, Ginn was pretty quiet on the day. He finished with 3 catches for 12 yards and a score on 6 targets, and added a 20-yard run on a jet sweep (or Ginn-da-round as I like to call it).Josh Hill - 49 (62%)Hill wasn’t much of a factor on the stat sheet outside of his lone catch and target for 17 yards, but it was still a great play for him on the tight end screen that looked to go for a loss or minimal gain.Benjamin Watson - 45 (57%)Watson also proved that age is only a number on Sunday, finishing with 71 yards on 5 catches (6 targets). Sean Payton challenged his tight ends after last week’s game, and it looks like Watson heard the call loud and clear.Cameron Meredith - 34 (43%)Meredith had just one catch and one target in the game, but it was a big one. The 11-yard touchdown from Brees helped the Saints take a late third quarter lead. Once Meredith really gets going, it could be even more interesting for the New Orleans offense.Tre’Quan Smith - 26 (33%)Smith didn’t register any catches or runs on the stat sheet. On a day that saw the Saints go for 534 yards on offense Willie Roaf Jersey , him not being involved is a really scary thought.Austin Carr - 13 (16%)Carr had two targets on Sunday, finishing with 1 catch for 25 yards. It arguably might have been the best throw from Brees on the day, as Carr hauled in a great catch.Zach Line - 12 (15%)2 catches for 6 yards for the fullback isn’t eye-popping at all, but the decision to go with him on the 4th and Goal to get a touchdown was a gutsy call by Payton, and it paid off.Jonathan Williams - 9 (11%)The preseason camp champ had a single carry for a single yard, and had a single reception for a single yard. Mark Ingram returns soon, and it’s needed for the ground game.Taysom Hill - 5 (6%)3 rushes for 39 yards to go along with 3 kick returns for 64 yards (21.3 average). The Saints used Hill at tight end too to block. This guy is becoming a legend before our eyes.Mike Gillislee, Jermon Bushrod - 4 (5%)DefenseA.J. Klein, Marcus Williams, Marshon Lattimore, Demario Davis - 68 (100%)Klein had an encore performance from last week’s win over the Browns, which is a good thing. Klein finished with just 3 combined tackles, but did have tackle for loss, quarterback hit, and pass defense in addition to his key plate late in the game where he blitzed Matt Ryan to force an incompletion. Davis led all tacklers with 8 combined (5 solo), and also had a QB hit.Cameron Jordan - 62 (91%)Jordan had a pretty strong day, finishing with 2.0 sacks, 5 combined tackles, 2 quarterback hits, 2 tackles for loss, and a pass defense. Jordan said he could have and should have had more sacks.Vonn Bell - 54 (79%)Bell tied with four others (Jordan https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Rickey-Jackson-Jersey , M. Williams, P.J. Williams) for second-highest on the team in tackles with 5 combined.Sheldon Rankins - 52 (76%)3 tackles for Rankins on the day, and 2 of them were for a loss.P.J. Williams - 50 (74%)No Saints defender had a worse outing than Williams, who was victimized by Calvin Ridley after getting the start over Ken Crawley. He ended up getting pulled, and came back in working the slot after Patrick Robinson went down. New Orleans has a lot of questions in their secondary.Alex Okafor - 44 (65%)Okafor’s blocked punt was a critical moment in the game, but aside that, just a single tackle.Ken Crawley - 42 (62%)Crawley took a real bad penalty on Calvin Ridley with safety help over the top from Williams. Let’s hope he returns to form soon.David Onyemata - 41 (60%)Onyemata took a really bad special teams penalty after messing with the center on a field goal try that directly led to the Falcons putting a touchdown on the board. Perhaps it’s growing pains, but either way the Saints had a really undisciplined outing.Marcus Davenport - 34 (50%)The first-round pick nabbed his first sack of his career, and it probably couldn’t have come against a better opponent. Davenport had 2 quarterback hits and a tackle for loss. It looked like Atlanta was double-teaming him most of the game.Taylor Stallworth - 27 (40%)Patrick Robinson - 23 (34%)According to early reports, it’s a high ankle sprain for Robinson. Of course, we’ll know more eventually, but at this point we have to count him out for several weeks.Kurt Coleman - 22 (32%)Alex Anzalone - 13 (19%)Jay Bromley - 12 (18%)Special Teams (Top Reps)Taysom Hill, Craig Robertson - 29Chris Banjo, Vince Biegel, Justin Hardee, J.T. Gray - 25 The NFL added a new element to its’ roughing the passer rule this past offseason. The new rule, which is located in Rule 12, Section 2, Article 9 of the NFL’s rule book, states a player will be penalized 15 yards if he applies all or most of his body weight onto a quarterback and drives him to the ground.The rule was most likely added as a knee jerk reaction to Aaron Rodger’s broken collarbone last year while taking a sack from Chicago Bears pass rusher Shea McClellin. Tony Romo must be feeling like a keg of O’Doul’s; worthless.Romo first broke his collarbone against the Giants way back in 2010. He missed the final 10 games of that season. Then in 2015 Romo missed seven games due to another collarbone fracture in a loss to the Eagles. He returned for less than two games before re-injuring it against the Panthers.The Cowboys finished 2015 with a 4-12 record. But the league didn’t seem to care. They were the same types of hits Rodgers took in 2017, but no rule changes were made.Ironically Morten Andersen Color Rush Jersey , it’s Rodgers’ very own teammate, Clay Matthews, who has been burned the most by the new rule. For three weeks in a row, he has earned spirit-crushing roughing the passer penalties. The first penalty definitely was a penalty, but the second and third penalties left most scratching their heads. Even Aaron Rodgers, whom this rule was most likely created to protect doesn’t agree with it.NFL fans have been incensed with the extreme increase in roughing the passer penalties, which are on pace to be the most since 2001. Sack artists like J.J. Watt feel the very same way.Pass rushers are some of the most athletic players on the field. But what they are being asked to do is simply impossible when taking the laws of physics into account.Just this past weekend, an 11 year veteran and leader of the Dolphins locker room, William Hayes, tore his right ACL while trying to avoid landing on Derek Carr in the act of sacking him during a crucial third down stop.NFL veterans like Richard Sherman and the Saints’ own Cam Jordan chimed in when they heard the news of Hayes’ unfortunate injury.Dolphins’ head coach Adam Gase was despondent following the game. “He will be out for the season,” Gase said. “He tore his ACL on that sack. He was trying to not put body weight on the quarterback. His foot got caught in the ground.” Hayes accounted for a third of the Dolphins’ sacks this season and was a crucial run stop element during their first 3-0 start in five years.Add Derek Carr to the growing list of quarterbacks who don’t like this new rule even though it’s designed to protect them.Hayes’ teammate, Akeem Spence verbalized players’ frustrations perfectly. ”It sucks because he was trying to protect the quarterback while still trying to make the play, and it’s a double-edged sword,” Spence said. “What do you expect us to do? We know the rule, but we don’t know the ins and outs.”“And then I saw Clay Matthews, he had another one yesterday. What do you want the guy to do? You gotta put the guy down. How much is too much weight? What technique do you use? How do you go about it? We are still asking questions just like y’all are. Let’s be honest, that’s a difficult rule to gauge.”Fans are frustrated with the high number of penalties killing the momentum of games with too many breaks in the action already. Defenders are frustrated at the impossibility of the task they are being asked to perform. Hell, even a couple of the highest paid quarterbacks have stated they don’t care for the rule either.It seems Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is the only player who is ready to embrace the new rule. “I need to sit in the pocket and let them hit me more. Simple as that.” I sincerely doubt the competition committee wanted quarterbacks taking more hits in exchange for more valuable penalties, but that is exactly what Prescott has proposed. Another play that stood out last week against the Falcons was when multiple Saints defenders were in hot pursuit of quarterback Matt Ryan. Ryan appeared to give himself up close to the sideline after scrambling out of the pocket. The defenders immediately halted their pursuit. Then Ryan underhand tossed the ball up field and the play resulted in an incomplete pass instead of a four yard loss like it would have been if the Saints defenders didn’t appear to lay off Ryan. If quarterbacks around the league start pulling this trick, we may never see another sack.If a sack becomes more rare because of this rule, could pass rushers and sack artists become devalued? Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack just signed extensions worth more than $20 million per year to do little else than attack quarterbacks. Cam Jordan is the 18th highest paid edge rusher in the league and he makes a cool $11 million per year. It’s a valuable position that is paid for harassing quarterbacks. If they can’t do their job without costing their teams countless first downs Bobby Hebert Jersey , I wonder if teams will still want to pay them top dollar. Clay Matthews is paid $13.2 million per year to sack the quarterback, and two of the prettiest sacks he’s ever registered have instead cost the Packers 30 yards in penalties.Matthews had this to say following his latest penalty against Washington quarterback Alex Smith. ”Of course, like I said last week, NFL’s gonna come back, say I put my body on him, but that’s a football play. I hit him from the front, got my head across, wrapped up. I’ve never heard of anybody tackling somebody without any hands.”“When he gives himself up as soon as you hit him, your body weight’s going to go on him. I think we’re looking for the hits that took Aaron [Rodgers] out last year, that little extra. If I wanted to hurt him, I could have. I could’ve put some extra on him. That’s football.”The spirit of this rule has clearly been lost on the fans, players, and refs. This can’t possibly be what the competition committee had in mind when they established the rule. Usually the league doesn’t roll back rules after making them, but in the case of touchdown celebrations, they did exactly that by loosening the previously draconian laws of having fun after scoring.The league has released a statement revealing that it will not change the rule mid season.Let’s hope the league does take a second look at this rule this offseason and roll it back to when the players were just playing hard nosed football. Because if they don’t, Tony Romo just might come out of retirement.

After trailing 0-7 Mike Mitchell Color Rush Jersey , the Steelers only needed 0:24 to go up 14–7. As the points mounted up, the 2018 Steelers put themselves in elite company within one of the NFL’s most historic franchises.The following James Conner Color Rush Jersey are how the Steelers scoring compares to their all-time franchise marks, both regular season and playoffs, as the game progressed:1st Quarter: 21 points This point total is tied for the second most points the Steelers have scored in the opening quarter of a game. In Week 4 of 2016, the Steelers scored 22 points against the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field. The Steelers have scored 21 first quarter points five other times in their history, including home games in 2013, 2004 https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Artie-Burns-Jersey , 1995, and 1990. The Steelers also scored 21 points in the first quarter in Cleveland in 1979. In every one of these 6 games, the Steelers’s were victorious by at least 10 points.Halftime: 31 points Before tonight, the Steelers scored 31 points in the first half in 11 games including the post season. The most points the Steelers have ever had in the first half of a game was 38 in 1973 against San Diego. This was the sixth time the Steelers scored 31 points by half time, and every time the Steelers have eclipsed this mark they have gone on to win the game by at least two touchdowns.End of the 3rd Quarter: 45 pointsThursday night was the third time the Steelers have scored exactly 45 points after three quarters, which is third on their all-time list. The Steelers scored 50 points by the end of the third in 1966 and 48 points in 1954. When reaching this point total before reaching the fourth quarter, the Steelers ‘ have been victorious every time by a minimum of 20 points.Final: 52 pointsSteelers reached 52 points in a game for the first time since 1984 against San Diego Antonio Brown Jersey , and for the fifth time in their history. The team record for points in a game is 63 against the New York Giants in 1953. The other times the Steelers have reached 52 points was in 1954 with 55 points against Cleveland and in 1966 with 57 points in Atlanta. Of these five games, the smallest margin of victory it was 24 points.Since the inaugural season of Heinz Field in 2001, Thursday night’s scoring output of 52 points was the most the Steelers have scored in their current home stadium. The Steelers spent the last 14:55 of the game wisely being more concerned about preserving player health than scoring more points in a game which was obviously out of reach. If not, Steelers may have set the all-time franchise record for points scored in a single game. Pittsburgh Steelers fans are unfortunately getting used to seeing someone else manning the right tackle position other than Marcus Gilbert the past three seasons. Due to injury or suspension, Gilbert will miss his 14th game over the past three seasons. Backup Matt Feiler appears to be poised to make his second start at right tackle this season. Feiler’s first start was against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his performance was positive. Feiler should square off against Cleveland Browns defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah. Ogdah is coming off a solid game against Tampa Bay where he had 1.5 sacks, a tackle for a loss, two pass deflections and five total tackles.The missed block on the safety forces Conner back inside on the screen play which may have negated good yardage.The following two pass plays show how Feiler has his struggles. The first play he gets knocked back and although he initially recovers Stephon Tuitt Color Rush Jersey , he ends up losing the handfight battle. This is being nit picky due to how long keeps his man at bay. The second play Feiler lets his man by and forces Ben Roethlisberger up the pocket and into the sack. Feiler shined most of the game and the following was shown last to stress plays where he performed admirably. All three plays the film shows how he can run the defender up the arc and keep Big Ben clean in the pocket. Two of his run blocking plays could not have occurred at a better time as the Steelers were looking to grind out the game and preserve the win. The first run play he comes off the double team and kicks the linebacker out of the play. Just fundamental football. The second play was a monstrous first down run while the Steelers looked to chew up the clock. Feiler turns the linemen while on the double team but also takes out the linebacker on the 27 yard gain. The third play is again solid run blocking for nine yards to eat up the clock.Browns defensive end Myles Garrett gets the limelight but Ogdah’s matchup against Feiler may be the one to focus upon. If Feiler can perform and he did during the Tampa Bay game, there should not be cause for concern. If he struggles, could the Steelers be forced to turn to rookie fourth-round pick, Chukwuma Okorafor? Steelers fans are sure hoping not.

Mahomes led two touchdown drives over Phillip Lindsay Color Rush Jersey the final 6:27 and Hunt scored on a 4-yard touchdown with 1:39 remaining to give the Chiefs the lead.Case Keenum had a chance to flip the script on Denver’s final drive as a 36-yard completion to Jeff Heuermann moved the Broncos to the Chiefs 28-yard line. However https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Steve-Atwater-Jersey , a missed throw to Demaryius Thomas and an unsuccessful hook and lateral call on fourth down allowed the Chiefs to hang on for the win.Mahomes completed 28 of 45 passes for 304 yards with a passing and rushing touchdown for Kansas City. Hunt gained 121 yards on 19 carries with the game-winning score.Mahomes scored on a 8-yard scramble to cap a 12-play scoring drive that give the Chiefs a 10-3 lead in the second quarter. A 42-yard pass from Keenum to Courtland Sutton set up a 14-yard Royce Freeman touchdown that evened the game at 10-10. McManus’ 34-yard field goal as time expired gave Denver a 17-14 advantage at the break.After a 21-yard Butker field goal tied the game once again, the Broncos took control. Phillip Lindsay scored on a 1-yard run to conclude a nine-play 80-yard scoring drive and a 46-yard field goal from McManus pushed the Denver lead to 23-13 with 12:47 remaining.Freeman and Lindsay combined for 136 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 20 carries for Denver.Mahomes responded with an impressive drive that overcame a pair of offensive penalties that set the Chiefs back. They faced third-and-16 and first-and-20 on the drive and converted a fourth-and-1 to ultimately find the end zone on a 2-yard pass to Travis Kelce.The Chiefs forced a three-and-out and Marquette King delivered only a 35-yard punt for the Broncos as Kansas City got a prime chance to get the score they needed.Mahomes completed a pass left-handed to Tyreek Hill to convert on a third-and-5. Then the Chiefs had to again overcame offensive penalties that put the Chiefs in a second-and-30 situation at their own 31-yard line. Mahomes scrambled to his right before hitting Demarcus Robinson for 23 yards to set up a manageable third down. Demetrius Harris broke free for a 35-yard gain down to the Denver 11 at the two-minute warning.Two plays later, Hunt scored from 4 yards out to give the Chiefs the victory. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) The daughter of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen announced her desire to take over the leadership role of the team and was informed she hasn’t met the criteria.The Pat Bowlen Trust issued a statement Thursday saying Beth Bowlen Wallace ”is not capable or qualified at this time.”The team was placed in a trust when Pat Bowlen stepped down in 2014 because of Alzheimer’s. The trust is overseen by three people, including team president and CEO Joe Ellis, who has final say on day-to-day operations until one of Bowlen’s seven children can succeed him as controlling owner.Bowlen Wallace said in a statement that it is her desire to ”lead this team with the same passion my father did and help the Broncos become Super Bowl champions again.”The Broncos have made 18 of their 22 playoff appearances during the Pat Bowlen era. Since he was introduced as the majority owner on March 23, 1984, the team has the second-most regular-season wins (behind New England) and captured three Super Bowl titles.”I have advised the Trustees that I am ready and have done everything they said I need to do to take this step,” the 47-year-old Bowlen Wallace said. ”Working in management at the Broncos is something I have prepared for and dreamed of doing.”The stipulations to be controlling owner of the Broncos included completion of a business or law degree and five years in management in the NFL or another major business organization.Bowlen Wallace graduated from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law in 2016. She also worked with the Broncos as the director of special projects before her employment was ended in 2015.She’s assisted with Colorado-based nonprofits and charitable organizations, including the Alzheimer’s Association. She’s also worked as an executive in the oil and gas industry since 2016.”My father’s number one goal was to win John Elway Jersey ,” Bowlen Wallace said. ”He understood that took financial commitment, hard work, dedication, the right leadership, and drive. He was motivated to win not only for himself and the team but for the pride of Broncos Country, our beloved and loyal fans.”Bowlen Wallace has the support of Amie Bowlen Klemmer, the oldest Bowlen child; Bill Bowlen, Pat Bowlen’s brother; and minority owners of the team, Kerry and John Bowlen (John is Pat Bowlen’s brother).”Pat Bowlen’s wish and his legacy was to have one of his children run this team,” Kerry and John Bowlen said in a joint statement. ”That is what he always wanted. Beth is the best positioned of all the children to take over now. Her plan is just right – to take over as managing owner now and in the future allow the other children to mature https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Tom-Jackson-Jersey , learn and grow into the position, keeping this team in her family and in Denver, where the Broncos belong.”The Trust said Pat Bowlen made it clear that his children ”were not automatically entitled to a role with the team and that they would have to earn that opportunity through their accomplishments, qualifications and character.”In the statement, the Trust said it had communicated this with her.”Although Beth has declined our invitations to discuss her qualifications for the last two years, we will continue to proactively engage and meet with any of the Bowlen children who express a desire to earn the right to succeed their father,” the statement said. ”We will vigorously defend Pat’s plan in responding to these and any statements that are contrary to Pat’s words and intentions.”Added Ellis: ”As a trustee and someone Pat designated to oversee his team, I have an enormous responsibility to carefully administer his succession plan and make decisions in the best interests of the Broncos. We will continue to follow Pat’s blueprint – and nobody else’s – while keeping our focus as an organization on having a successful season.”—

Travis Frederick was dealt a surprising Leighton Vander Esch Jersey hand shortly before the Dallas Cowboys season began when he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. We haven’t seen Frederick this season as a result of his illness and back in early October the team officially placed him on injured reserve. Dallas has maintained optimism throughout this process Youth Connor Williams Jersey , but from the very start it was unlikely that Travis would play football this season, and quite honestly the top priority was his health.According to a report from The Dallas Morning News, Frederick has reached a bit of a milestone in his recovery. He’s now regaining sensation in his hands which is quite a testament both to how far he’s come and just how serious things have been for him this fall.It’s great to hear that Frederick is progressing and that he’s got a positive outlook as far as the road that lays ahead. This was never going to be an easy situation to handle and the fact that the Cowboys have supported him throughout it says a lot about who they are as an organization.While this is definitely a step in the right direction we should all be cautious about getting ahead of ourselves in his recovery. There’s no doubt that this news should be celebrated, but also within the DMN report was that Travis still has no sensation in his feet. He is clearly confident that it’s only temporary, though.Our best thoughts and wishes to Travis Frederick in his recovery.Grading the Cowboys 24-13 loss to the Seahawks The Dallas Cowboys had a chance to keep pace with the NFC East’s two other 2-1 teams in their late afternoon tilt at the Seattle Seahawks. The team hoped to build on the workmanlike performance in last week’s 20-13 victory over the New York Giants. Instead, we witnessed a sloppy, undisciplined, unimpressive performance that has fans legitimately questioning if this team has hope for a successful season. Let’s look at the grades.OVERALL: C-It’s tempting to give a lower grade here due to the many bad plays and performances on display Sunday. But there were some good things that happened. Dallas actually out-gained Seattle on the day 303 to 295. The team also gained 166 yards on the ground and averaged 8.7 yards per rush. The defense allowed only 4.4 yards per play by the Seahawks. In between all the ugliness there were some things to like. Unfortunately, the ugly happened more often and the bad individual plays had much more impact than the positive plays.Specifically, the Cowboys committed three turnovers and generated zero. It’s virtually impossible to win in the NFL with a negative three turnover ratio. Add untimely penalties, blown defensive assignments, additional defensive confusion and your best player making three monumental blunders and you have Sunday’s result. COACHING: C-Our own Dave Halprin makes the case for why the players bear the brunt of the blame for Sunday’s loss. He’s right that the player’s simply failed to execute basic fundamentals on numerous plays. But the Cowboys weren’t ready to play Sunday. They were sloppy, undisciplined and unprepared. And they had numerous units play below expectations. Whenever you have such widespread failure to meet expectations leadership has to bear some responsibility. The preparation and readiness of the Cowboys simply wasn’t there against the Seahawks. Yes, Ezekiel Elliott is the player who stepped out of bounds, negating what should have been a key second quarter touchdown. But why did that happen? How is the team practicing and preparing where he makes such a fundamental mistake?Special teams penalties have plagued this team throughout both the preseason and the regular season and they reared their head again Sunday. Why aren’t the coaches correcting these errors? Why were the Cowboys’ defense repeatedly unprepared when the Seahawks snapped the ball? This resulted in wasting timeouts and allowing big plays to a Seahawks offense that largely struggled otherwise. Something isn’t right in the way this team prepares. There’s too many players, too many units, not meeting reasonable expectations. Quarterback: CMany are ready to pull the plug on Dak Prescott and it’s understandable why. Prescott threw for 170 yards or less for the third consecutive game. He’s on pace to throw for less than 2,700 yards in 2018. Dak seems completely unable or unwilling to force the ball downfield and teams have no fear of flooding the short zone with defenders. The team hasn’t done him many favors in terms of scheme or personnel, however. The Dallas offense continues to be apredictable Youth Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , unimaginative approach that fails to take advantage of the things Dak does well. The offensive line, supposedly the strength of this team and where draft picks and salary cap has been invested, has been below average in 2018. After being sacked six times in week one Prescott was sacked another five times against the Seahawks. He was also hit ten additional times and had very few plays where he was able to stand in the pocket and scan the field. On the rare occasions he was able to deliver the ball he was failed by his receivers. Michael Gallup converted a perfectly thrown first down pass into an interception. Ezekiel Elliott also contributed a drop, and then managed to step out of bounds negating a would-be touchdown catch-and-run. In short, the passing game has been bad in every phase: scheme, protection, receivers and Dak himself. It’s really hard to believe all of these elements are going to improve. Running back: CEzekiel Elliot was the running game Sunday, and he finally looked like All Pro Ezekiel Elliott. He ran hard, with purpose and speed and consistently reached the second level. He averaged nearly eight yards per attempt on his sixteen attempts. But no one’s going to remember that due to three monumental blunders that, combined, affected the game more than his 127 yards rushing. Many have legitimately criticized Scott Linehan for failing to effectively utilize Elliott in the passing game like others have done with Leveon Bell, David Johnson, Kareem Hunt and Todd Gurley. Sunday Elliot twice had opportunities to make big plays in the passing game and each time he failed miserably. First, on a third down play early in the second quarter in a 0-0 game Dallas got exactly what they wanted: Elliott isolated on a linebacker crossing the shallow zone. Elliott got a step on his man and Prescott delivered the ball for what would have certainly been a first down and probably a big play. Elliott simply dropped the ball, ending that possession. Second came probably the biggest play of the game. Trailing 7-0 late in the second period Dallas faced a 3rd-and-2 from the Seattle 31-yard line. Prescott scrambled right after being pressured yet again. Seahawks safety Earl Thomas was put in a hopeless position... defend Elliott for the pass or allow Prescott to run for the first down. He attacked Prescott, who responded by throwing a simple pass to Elliott, which he caught and then raced in for a tying touchdown. But as we all know, Elliott lost track of the sideline and stepped out of bounds, negating the touchdown and resulting in a penalty. It was simply a dumb Youth Taco Charlton Jersey , undisciplined play from the team’s best player and it completely wiped out all the good that had happened on that drive up to that point. Finally, trailing 24-6 early in the fourth quarter and with things looking hopeless, Elliott provided some hope by breaking free from midfield for a run into the Seahawks’ red zone. However, Elliott struggled for extra yardage and fumbled at the end of the play, effectively ending the game. Elliott’s three bad plays more than negated the positives he contributed with his 138 total yards from scrimmage. The Cowboys’ have no chance of winning when their best player makes three huge, monumentally bad plays. TIGHT ENDS: BThere’s little to write about this nondescript group. Geoff Swaim did contribute 47 yards on seven targets, but none really made much of an impact. Rico Gathers continues to look for his first career reception. WIDE RECEIVERS: DWhether it’s scheme, Dak Prescott’s unwillingness to throw the ball downfield or the receivers not getting open, this low-pedigreed group of receivers simply isn’t making plays. The Cowboys’ passing attack not only isn’t making any deep plays (or even trying to make deep plays), it’s also not making any intermediate plays (or even trying to). The group combined for only 110 yards receiving Sunday. Worse, one of the team’s three turnovers came as a result of Michael Gallup dropping a ball that hit him directly in the hands for what should have been an easy catch. The rookie now has two drops and only three catches on the season. Tavon Austin did contribute an 18-yard run and his second touchdown as a Cowboy. But otherwise, this group is contributing almost nothing to the Cowboys’ offense. DEFENSIVE LINE: C-The Seahawks’ offensive line is one of the worst in the NFL. They had surrendered 11 sacks in their first two games. They had also failed to provide any running room for Seahawks’ runners. The Cowboys’ offensive line was expected to feast on an over-matched group. Instead, Russell Wilson was allowed to stand in the pocket without much pressure throughout the afternoon. In addition. the Seahawks rushed for 113 yards and had their first rushing touchdown of the season. In short, a supposedly outstanding Cowboys’ defensive line got soundly beat by a supposedly inept Seahawks’ offensive line. If you want a simple explanation for why this game didn’t go as planned, that sentence tells you all you need to know. Randy Gregory finally showed up, but not in a good way. Finally getting on the field for a full game, Gregory contributed zero sacks, zero tackles, zero quarterback hurries http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/antwaun-woods-jersey-cheap , zero fumbles caused, zero fumbles recovered, zero tackles for loss and zero passes defensed. He did, however, gift the Seahawks three points with a knuckle-headed penalty following a key Cowboys’ stop late in the first half. Demarcus Lawrence did contribute a half sack but otherwise was held in check most of the day. It was a very disappointing day for a unit that is supposed to be a strength of the team.LINEBACKERS: ASean Lee finally looked like Sean Lee, recording eleven tackles and a half sack. Unfortunately Lee suffered yet another soft-tissue injury and pretty much sat out the final quarter. No problem. Leighton Vander Esch stepped right in and did his best Lee impression. The Cowboys’ first-round draft pick led the team with eleven tackles. LVE has looked outstanding in his limited exposure thus far after a preseason that saw him limited by injury. The decision to draft a linebacker is looking prescient considering the fact Lee has been unable to finish two of three games this season. Finally, Jaylon Smith added a sack, eight tackles and hit Wilson hard several times. The three combined for thirty tackles and 1.5 sacks and were the only Cowboys’ unit to win their individual competition. SECONDARY: CThis very easily could have been a better grade as this group did many good things. But, like Elliott, a handful of breakdowns undid all the good the unit did throughout most of the day. Most egregious was Kavon Frazier’s mental blunder that allowed the Seahawks’ to score an easy 52-yard touchdown late in the second quarter. Frazier had nothing to gain by crowding the line of scrimmage in a misguided effort to disguise coverage. Instead, he put himself out of position to provide deep help on a play where cornerback Chidobie Awuzie was expecting help over the top. It was a monumentally stupid decision. This came after Xavier Woods was left in no-man’s land on the Seahawks’ first touchdown pass where he was forced to choose between defending one of two receivers where either choice was the wrong one. Funny how opponent’s are able to put Cowboys’ defender’s in such no-win situations but Cowboys’ coaches can’t do the same. SPECIAL TEAMS: CThis would be higher were it not for a key penalty that came in the third quarter. Tavon Austin fielded a long punt and returned it to midfield, setting up Dallas in good field position. However, a Byron Jones holding call set the team back to the Cowboys’ eleven yard line, forcing them to deal with a yet another long field. Going back to the preseason Cowboys’ return units have seemed to commit an inordinate amount of penalties.On the positive side of the ledger, Brett Maher hit both his field goals, including a 50-yarder following Ezekiel Elliott’s out-of-bounds goof. SUMMARYThe Cowboys have now played two bad games out of three and lost both. The team’s offense averages 170 yards passing and less than 14 points per game. The supposedly great defensive line just go beat up by a patchwork, substandard Seahawks’ offensive line. Unless things change significantly in fundamental ways, 2018 is going to be a long season for Cowboys’ fans.

The Washington Redskins made a surprise move three weeks into training camp by releasing veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick.Scandrick signed a two-year deal with Washington in March after being cut by the Dallas Cowboys and had been practicing with the first-team defense. Coach Jay Gruden on Tuesday said the play of second-year cornerback Fabian Moreau Dallas Cowboys Hoodie , sixth-round pick Greg Stroman, undrafted free agents Danny Johnson and Ranthony Texada and supplemental draft pick Adonis Alexander played into the decision."It had nothing to do with his play," Gruden said. "It was more the rookies' emergence, really. We drafted Stroman, we got Adonis in the supplemental (draft) and then nobody could really predict Danny and Texada the way they've played. And we want to give Orlando ample time to get on another team."More than anything, it seemed like Scandrick wasn't a good fit in the Redskins' secondary. They signed him after sending cornerback Kendall https://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/leighton-vander-esch-jersey Fuller to Kansas City as part of the trade for quarterback Alex Smith but before adding Stroman, Alexander, Johnson and Texada.Moreau, a 2017 third-round pick, moves into the nickel cornerback spot behind 2015 All-Pro Josh Norman and Dunbar Customized Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , a converted receiver the team is high on. Gruden hopes releasing Scandrick will get Moreau more snaps in practice and preseason games to prepare him for a bigger role."He's a strong, physical kid and can run," Gruden said. "When somebody else is here and Fabian's not taking reps, it's not doing anybody any good. So we have to see Fabian. Fabian's got to go through it, learn it, make his mistakes. We've got to get them corrected so when we play Arizona, we have a great confidence Fabian knows what to do and how to communicate and the leverages and techniques we want him to play."The Sports Capitol reported there was an organizational split on Scandrick's attitude that contributed to his release. The 31-year-old brought a big personality with him to Washington, and his play slipping amid an impressive showing by younger cornerbacks made him expendable."I was surprised," Norman said. "That wasn't something that I thought was going to happen. Then again, you can't be surprised what happens in this league."Add in his injury history — Scandrick played just 11 games last season and 12 in 2016 — and the Redskins opted to move on early before even seeing him in a second preseason game. Gruden said the team could sign another cornerback to fill Scandrick's spot on the 90-man roster Womens Amari Cooper Jersey , but indicated adding a high-profile veteran isn't in the plans."We're going to go with what we have right now," Gruden said. "Right now we like what we have."Johnson in particular has stood out in camp and the preseason opener at New England, going from earning a look as a rookie minicamp tryout to a strong bet to make the team. Gruden said the coaching staff likes the Southern University product's competitive nature and playmaking ability."He's been solid all the way around," Gruden said. "He's a good tackler. He's done a great job. Everything we've asked him to do, he's done and a very competitive kid."Releasing Scandrick is also an endorsement of Dunbar, who has spent his entire NFL career adjusting from wide receiver to cornerback. Dunbar is expected to start alongside Norman."I definitely feel like they're putting a lot of faith in me, but I have faith in myself," Dunbar said. "The body of work that I've done over the last three years from me switching from wide receiver to cornerback, that was every bit of me just buying into the process and the grind."NOTES: WR Josh Doctson missed practice Monday with a sore heel but returned Tuesday. Gruden said Doctson's absence was not related to Achilles' tendon soreness that cost him most of the 2016 season. ...

This has been a very strange week for Colts fans. After suffering through years of sub-par offensive line play www.coltsauthorizedshops.com , things appear to be coming together. The line has helped Indianapolis enjoy back-to-back games with a 100 yard rusher for the first time since 2007, and with 200 or more rushing yards as a team for the first time since 1985. According to Football Outsiders, the line has given up 10 sacks this year — which is tied for the second least in the NFL. They are tied for fourth in adjusted sack rate at 4.4%, a measure that includes intentional grounding and that is adjusted for down, distance, and opponent. Football Outsiders ranks the unit fifth overall in pass protection.In the ground game, the line is fourth in the NFL in average RB yards per carry at 4.93. In adjusted line yards, the offensive line is second with 5.11 yard per carry. They are the third best line in the NFL in generating positive yards on rushing attempts, allowing only 14% of rushing attempts to be stuffed for no gain or a loss.If all of that isn’t strange enough for Colts fans to read, it must have been a shock to see rookie guard Quenton Nelson receive Rookie of the Month honors for October. He is the first guard in NFL history to receive the recognition. The icing on the cake is that Indy’s offensive line is starting to gain other national recognition, with NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling naming center Ryan Kelly to the mid-season All-Pro team. The idea that the Colts would have two offensive linemen generating national discussion in one season would have been laughable a season ago. Kelly was hurt for much of 2017, Nelson was playing at Notre Dame Indianapolis Colts Womens T-Shirt , and the offensive line was held together by super glue and duct tape. Now? Anthony Castonzo’s healthy return to the lineup and pairing with Nelson and Kelly is a huge advantage against just about any opponent. More shocking, Mark Glowinski has been strong in his first starting reps in Indianapolis after a rough beginning to his career in Seattle and rookie Braden Smith — the assumed heir apparent to the starting right guard position — has looked good at right tackle.Sometimes everything seems to go right all at once. With two 2018 draft picks and one free agent addition, Chris Ballard may have done something in his tenure that former general manager Ryan Grigson was unable to do throughout his time with the Colts. The offensive line may be one of the team’s biggest strengths and they’ve just started to show signs of what they’re capable of accomplishing.If this unit stays healthy and continues to play dominant football, the Colts could shock the NFL world in the second half of the season. Lately the Indianapolis Colts have been quite an offense to watch. Andrew Luck has been fantastic, the offensive line has protected him very well and despite being without T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle for stretches, the team is still averaging 28.9 points per game.However, there’s another obvious improvement to the offense that Colts fans aren’t used to acknowledging over the last few games as well. The Colts running game has seen a serious uptick this year with the emergence of Marlon Mack, and now he’s getting some help within the team’s platoon.Rookies Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins aren’t seeing the carries Mack is, but it’s hard to discount them as being a major plus thus far. The offensive line is certainly helping a lot, but we’re seeing a nice combination of vision, power and speed with this Colts trio of ball carriers. Since Luck has been under center for the Colts, he’s only had one running back average more than 4 yards per carry who has toted the rock more than 100 times. Donald Brown averaged 5.3 YPC in 2013 Indianapolis Colts Hats , and to be fair to the argument, Ahmad Bradshaw had 90 carries in 2014 and averaged 4.7 YPC. That’s pretty darn good too. But, that’s it. Nobody else has even come close to touching those numbers. Luck’s been banged around each season before this year, he’s had only the above two seasons with even a remotely solid running attack from a single back. Sure Vick Ballard had a nice season in there, but even he only hit the 3.9 YPC mark. Not awful by any means, but not something that put a stamp on the offense either.This year, though, the Colts have three backs who are pace to hit the century mark in carries, and they’re proving to be an effective bunch at that. Mack, Hines and Wilkins all have at least 50 carries thus far, and none of them are averaging less than 4.5 yards per tote.We were told that this group was going to be a by-committee unit in Frank Reich’s offense, and while Mack is looking more and more like the lead dog Indianapolis Colts Womens Hoodie , 104 combined carries out of your other two options is one heck of a boost. As a trio, the three are averaging just over 5 yards per carry, are all three viable targets out of the backfield — Hines is the clear leader in that category — and they seem to be gelling with the offensive line quite nicely. As a team, the Colts are tied for 8th in the league at 4.7 yards per carry and are certainly causing opponents to take notice. But, is a recent jump in production from Hines and a handful of games with a good average from Wilkins enough to say the team has a potent attack? Mack has been excellent racking up more than 250 rushing yards the past two weeks, and nearly 350 over the past three, but even he’s only played in four games to this point in the season. Is it too early to tell just yet?You can make that argument and I don’t think you’d be wrong, but there are some other factors that are leading me to believe this could be for real. The Colts offensive line has been so good, that if they continue to be as effective run blocking this very much seems as though it could become the norm pending any unforeseen injuries. Right now, Football Outsiders has the Colts’ line ranked 2nd in the league in Adjusted Line Yards and 3rd in Stuffed Percentage which is a really good combination for the work that the O-line is doing for the backs.In addition to that, they have the Colts sitting at 4th in RB yards which is where the team’s running backs are at in terms of a yards per carry average. Their second level yardage is quite good (6th) and their open field yardage is somewhat average (15th), but even that is a major upgrade for the Colts in recent seasons. All in all Womens Customized Indianapolis Colts Jerseys , it appears that the Colts have the right combination of offensive line play and running back talent to maintain these numbers throughout the remainder of the year. In games that the Colts have put up at least 100 rushing yards, they are 3-1 and have an average margin of +12.5. On top of that, of the three teams they’ve gained over 100 rushing yards on, both, the Bills and the Redskins are in the top 10 of the league in YPC allowed. Whether you believe at this moment that the Colts rushing attack is a blip, or a sign of things to come, you simply have to love how Reich and this offense have been imposing their will and have become an extremely balanced offense of late.This can only help the Colts remain unpredictable for the future, and the near future for this team could very well be a playoff run if things bounce right.

This is part three of a three-part weekly film analysis on the performance of Patrick Mahomes.Part one: something good and something bad here Womens Xavier Williams Jersey , part two: something smart and something special here.The record for quarterbacks under the age of 25 to play the Patriots in Gillette Stadium has been awful—it’s 1-24—and Patrick Mahomes contributed to that number. Watching the first half, you can understand why. The New England defense was able to throw unique looks at Mahomes, and it ultimately led to mistakes that cost the Chiefs the game.After two quarters, Mahomes was 13 of 23 for 164 yards and two interceptions. By far the worst halftime line of his young career. Based on the Bill Belichick track record, you wouldn’t expect to see the kid dig himself out of that hole. But he did. And it’s part of what should make you believe he’s going to be a franchise quarterback for years to come.Something improvedSometimes, the improvements can happen from one half to another.The first 30 minutes of the game was bad Womens Anthony Hitchens Jersey , but the response is everything you need to know about your signal caller.Mahomes looked flustered at times in the first half. He looked like he was trying to manage the energy he had to play on a big stage. I think Belichick knew that was likely to happen and wanted to slow the unit down as much as he could in that time. The Patriots threw new looks at Mahomes he hasn’t seen before, then adjusted players after he set the protection and dropped players in coverage that he didn’t see (more on that in a second). They got him early.But not late. The response is what excites me about Mahomes’ outlook moving forward. The first throw after his red-zone interception was a 67-yard touchdown pass on a crucial third-and-2. On Tyreek Hill’s 14-yard touchdown reception, the Patriots adjusted alignment late. It didn’t affect Mahomes. He fixed his problem at halftime.There’s no fear, no timidity in the way Mahomes plays the game. Amidst that mentality is the ability to adjust and not make the same mistake in-game. That is going to serve him well over the course of his career. I think that’s part of why he’s developed and grown so quickly.Needs improvementHopefully, Mahomes doesn’t make this mistake twice.Off of pla= action, Mahomes thinks he has Travis Kelce open on a crossing route. Linebacker Dont’a Hightower initially fills on the action but gets depth and under the throw for Mahomes first interception of the game. He just didn’t see him.Tanoh Kpassagnon recorded an interception in training camp courtesy of Mahomes in a similar situation. I was there for it. There have been other instances this season in which you’re not entirely sure Mahomes saw the underneath coverage dropping from or near the line of scrimmage. We might see this more moving forward.What’s more on this play Authentic Travis Kelce Jersey , as Matt Lane mentioned, Watkins is open. Not only was it intercepted, but also there was a deeper option available. The response to score 31 points in the second half was fantastic. The challenge could have been less if this play went differently. Maybe the Chiefs win.Regardless of this play, Mahomes has been great about improving every single week, sometimes mid-game. He’ll continue to grow and develop and as great as his vision is in most cases, this blind spot he seems to have will go away too.Miss this week’s episode of the AP Laboratory?If you can’t see the player Authentic Chris Jones Jersey , click here.Links: Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Art 19Chiefs add Joey Ivie to practice squad, release Dee Liner The Kansas City Chiefs have signed nose tackle Joey Ivie to the practice squad, releasing defensive lineman Dee Liner, the team announced on its official Twitter account.Ivie, 23, originally entered the league out of the University of Florida as seventh-round pick made by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2017 NFL Draft.Ivie caught on with the Atlanta Falcons practice squad after the Cowboys waived him in 2017 Womens Sammy Watkins Jersey , but the Falcons waived him this offseason with an undisclosed injury settlement. Ivie spent training camp this season with the Seattle Seahawks before he was released as part of the 53-man roster cutdown.Ivie had a modest career at Florida before joining the pro ranks. His four years in Gainesville were highlighted by his senior season, when he started 10 games, recording 26 tackles, tackles 3.5 for loss, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.Ivie replaces Liner as the only defensive lineman on the Chiefs practice squad.

Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph said former first-round pick Paxton Lynch was "obviously motivated" by his demotion to third-string quarterback last week "and that's a good sign. He's upset and he should be upset."Lynch might not have enough time to channel that frustration and salvage a roster spot.Chad Kelly of Ole Miss http://www.bearscheapstores.com/kyle-fuller-jersey-cheap , "Mr. Irrelevant" as the final pick of the 2017 draft, has outworked and outplayed Lynch all summer and in both of Denver's exhibition games.He's expected to get a long look in relief of starter Case Keenum on Friday night in Washington as general manager John Elway decides whether to add a veteran backup instead.That likely leaves Lynch with mop-up duty at best. He might even have to wait until Denver's exhibition finale at Arizona to persuade the Broncos brass to keep him around.After leapfrogging Lynch, Kelly had another solid performance, throwing for 90 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-9 passing against Chicago before leaving a 23-10 lead to Lynch, who again faltered as the Bears came back to win 24-23 Saturday night.Afterward, Lynch said he never wanted the No. 2 job he lost to Kelly ."I want to be THE quarterback. I don't want to be a backup and I definitely don't want to be third-string quarterback," Lynch said. "The cards have been dealt to this point in time and I'm not quitting. I'll never quit. My mom never quit. My dad never quit. My brother never quit. I'm never going to quit and I'm working hard."It's just not paying off for the former Memphis QB who hasn't shown the progress the Broncos expected entering his third season in the NFL even with Trevor Siemian, whom he couldn't beat out the past two summers, now playing in Minnesota.By many measures, Lynch has actually regressed since Elway moved up to select Lynch.He's won just one of his four NFL starts, and that was in his rookie year when he went 1-1 with two TDs and an interception. Last year, he was 0-2 with one TD and three interceptions.In the preseason, his slide is even more dramatic:— 2016: 40 for 68 for 458 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions.— 2017: 16 for 24 for 90 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.— 2018: 11 for 22 for 63 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.Lynch was booed when he entered the game against the Bears at Mile High. Denver's fan base has apparently had enough of the man Elway envisioned as his next franchise quarterback."I feel bad for Paxton, but our fans want to win," Joseph said, adding that Lynch "has to ignore it and go play. It's professional football. No one is going to hold your hand, so he has to go out there and perform."That tough love approach is a departure from the kid-glove treatment Lynch enjoyed in the past .Even when Lynch was having a tough time digesting the playbook and the speed of the game, unable to use proper footwork or decipher defenses to capitalize on his natural talents, the Broncos brass kept its faith in him.With Lynch struggling this preseason, Kelly, who missed his entire rookie season last year while recovering from wrist and ankle injuries, has gone 21 of 30 for 267 yards, three TDs, an interception and two sacks.Lynch's demotion puts him on notice with roster cuts looming."When I first got the news, I was pretty upset about it because I know how hard I work, I know how bad I want to play and I know how much this means to me," Lynch said. "Sometimes you go through tough tests just to take you to a whole other level. I'm taking it that way and working my butt off."Lynch said he realizes poor quarterback play is especially untenable in Denver, where Elway and Peyton Manning won Super Bowls."I just haven't been playing well Cheap Leonard Floyd Jersey ," he said. "That's not acceptable, especially playing quarterback here, you've got to play well and give your team an opportunity to win every week."Lynch insists his confidence isn't shaken."Yeah, if you don't believe in yourself then no one else is going to believe in you," he said. "That's what I have to do. I have to hang on that, come to work every day and get better."MILITARY SALUTEBroncos receiver Demaryius Thomas traded his autographed jersey to a U.S. Airman who participated in USAA's "Salute to Service NFL Boot Camp" at the team's training facilities Tuesday.In return, Thomas received a pair of military challenge coins , one from the 1st Space Battalion and another from a Chief Master Sergeant."It's always good to see them come out and support us, and we can support them back," Thomas said.The ninth-year pro was the only player to receive military medallions in exchange for his jersey."I'm trying to decide if I they're going to travel with me for the season or they're going in the locker with me or I'm going to take them home," Thomas said. "I think I want to travel with them."Notes: WR Carlos Henderson, who failed to report to training camp while dealing with family issues, visited general manager John Elway at team headquarters Tuesday morning. It’s that time of the week again. Another week in the NFL season and another week of Chicago Bears questions.The Bears are coming off a 24-10 victory and have a real chance to reach 5-3 with a win at Buffalo on Sunday. Even so, there’s plenty of questions to be answered before Sunday’s game, so let’s get to it.To this point, I’ve seen nothing from either player to have that impact a decision on what I would do with Leonard Floyd in the off-season. Aaron Lynch has been solid at times but ultimately, they aren’t getting enough out of the edge rushers without Khalil Mack.It’s quite possible that general manager Ryan Pace and company could decide to cut bait with Floyd in the off-season and recoup picks but the Bears are bound to have more than one hole with Adrian Amos, Bryce Callahan, Bobby Massie and Lynch all set to be free agents in the off-season.It’s also likely that the Bears will only be operating on about $25 million or so in cap space, with no picks before the third round. This is all worth keeping in mind when talking about trading current starting players and then expecting them to fill those holes with better players.This is going to be a limited off-season in terms of resources and I can’t see Floyd fetching much more than a low third round pick at this point.As we’ve seen for the majority of the year, the usage of offensive weapons in this offense is going to change on a weekly basis. Head coach Matt Nagy has said that he wants to get the running game move involved and I believe him when he says that. The problem is, even with Jordan Howard’s best game of the season, he’s averaging just 3.5 yards-per-carry and still not getting great blocking up front.As the weather gets colder and it becomes harder to pass the ball, the Bears are going to need a reliable run game. As fun as Tarik Cohen is, he’s not someone I want running the ball 20-plus time per game at 5’6”. So by default, I would expect Howard’s usage to continue to grow, or at least stay somewhat level from his 22 carries last Sunday.It’s becoming quite evident that the offensive staff feels more comfortable with the veteran in Josh Bellamy over Kevin White or Javon Wims. It’s crazy to believe but Bellamy actually led all Bears receivers with 83% of snaps. It backs up what Nagy has talked about with Bellamy’s value being able to play all three positions and his knowledge of the offense ranging back to his days in Kansas City.As far as Marcus Cooper and Dion Sims, I’m a little confused on Cooper as well.Cooper didn’t play well in the preseason but they opted to keep him and because of that http://www.bearscheapstores.com/akiem-hicks-jersey-cheap , his $1.5 million contract is fully guaranteed with him being on the Week 1 roster. As far as Sims goes, it’s a similar situation. His $6.33 million for 2018 is fully guaranteed and on top of that, Adam Shaheen’s injury has kept him playing more snaps than he likely would have before the injury. Sims still has value as a blocker but as we’ve seen for a year and half, he’s terrible as a pass catcher. I’d fully expect he and his $6.33 million cap hit for 2019 to be cut early in the off-season. It would save them a full $6 million.This is a question that came up multiple times this week.Right now (with no practice reports), I’d lean towards him sitting another week. The same with Allen Robinson. Nagy said that the opponent had nothing to do with their decision, yet he also said earlier in the week that both players felt about the same as they did in the week previous when they played against the New England Patriots.The reality of the situation is quite simple. The Bears felt comfortable enough sitting both players due to their ability to win the game against a lesser opponent and that likely doesn’t change this week. Now obviously, if either player is healthy enough to play, it could change things. But my early guess is that they’ll sit both players and get them ready for their three game stretch of divisional opponents in 11 days coming up starting Week 10.Absolutely not. Not only that but I think Mack’s presence gives the Bears a boost.I know it’s tough to go back and watch their performances in Week 6 and 7 when Mack was hurt, but I think the defensive unit simply lacked energy and went through a bit of a down spell more than anything else.Just to give you an idea, since Mack has been hurt, the Bears have got to the quarterback two times in three games. His impact on this defense is large and don’t let a poor two-game stretch make you feel differently. Not very high at this point.One would have to think if Pace wanted to improve his pass rush, he would have made a move for someone like Dante Fowler, Shane Ray or someone to that caliber at the deadline.They have a superstar in Mack, a former top 10 pick in Floyd and a $4 million back up in Lynch. If they can’t find a way to get it done with them, I find it hard to believe that a street free agent that hasn’t had a ton of success or even interest as of late, would be a good answer.To be completely honest, there’s only a few kickers I would feel comfortable with in big situations such as those. But no, Cody Parkey is not currently one of those.To be completely fair, there’s currently nine starting kickers that have missed three or more field goals this year. So, it’s fair to say it’s been a down year for kickers. Even so, I think it’s important for some fans to remember that giving top money to a slightly above average kicker, doesn’t all of the sudden make him a better kicker.My bigger concern with Parkey is what will happen as the weather continues to get worse. Luckily for the Bears, it’s become a league wide problem.Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network tweeted on Tuesday that Kyle Long was expected to miss six to eight weeks with a foot injury. With that news, that obviously means that James Daniels is likely to keep his starting spot at left guard and I would fully assume that Eric Kush will slide over to right guard until Long gets back (assuming they don’t place him on IR).Kush hasn’t played bad in his six starts this year, it was always just more about starting your second round guard over a 29-year-old journeyman that is set to be a free agent in March. The biggest issue that Kush has had (in my opinion) has been his run blocking and with being on the right side, he’s more likely to tasked with that than he was on the left side. I don’t believe this will be a crushing blow by any means but this is why you have good depth at these positions.

Andy Reid calls Eric Berry “day to day” The number one question on the mind of every Kansas City Chiefs fan will remain a question Authentic Harrison Butker Jersey , at least for another two days.“Is Eric Berry healthy?”The first question asked to head coach Andy Reid on Monday was whether or not he expected the Chiefs safety to play against the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday.“Yeah, we’ll see—day to day,” Reid said, almost feebly. “We’ll see how it goes.”Berry has not appeared on the field for the Chiefs since Saturday Youth Terrance Smith Jersey , August 11, as he continues to deal with a sore heel. Chiefs vice president of sports medicine and performance Rick Burkholder is expected to provide more clarity on the situation in a statement on Wednesday.The Chiefs could be taking extra caution with Berry due to his injury history—Berry missed nearly all of last season when he ruptured his Achilles in the Week 1 opening-night win over the New England Patriots. For what it’s worth, the recent soreness is reportedly in Berry’s opposite heel.If Berry can’t go, I’d expect the Chiefs to start the returning Ron Parker and either Eric Murray or Armani Watts. Jordan Lucas http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-eric-murray-jersey , who the Chiefs acquired from the Miami Dolphins on Friday night, would provide depth. Deliberations about who should be the first AFC offensive player of the month for the 2018 season probably didn’t take long.There have been many fine performances so far this season, but Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes‘ work proved too much to beat. The league announced on Thursday that Mahomes took the monthly honor.The Chiefs went 3-0 in September as Mahomes threw 13 touchdowns without an interception. He kicked off October in the same fashion as he authored a comeback win over the Broncos while pushing his touchdown total to 14 and running for another before the night was out.Mahomes has completed 90-of-138 passes for 1,2000 yards over all four games and has shown a remarkable ability to make plays while under pressure in the pocket. That’s what the Chiefs were hoping would happen when they traded Alex Smith to clear the way for Mahomes this offseason and Mahomes has made that move pay off in a big way.

Daniel Houston Womens Customized Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , who goes by @CowboysStats on Twitter, is a great source of analytics for all things Cowboys. One of the reasons he’s such a good source is he tends to analyze whatever data he’s looking at and then draws conclusions from his analysis.This may sound like the logical thing to do, but I assure you, it is not. In today’s media environment of hot takes, black/white thinking, and clickrates, many folks form an opinion and then go looking for data to support that opinion.Which may be what prompted Houston to write this recent comment.When I read Houston’s take about “bad impressions” (or “preconceived opinions” as I might have phrased it) I was reminded of a book I once read by Jean-Francois Manzoni, a Professor for Leadership and Organizational Development in Lausanne, Switzerland. His book is titled “Set-up-to-Fail Syndrome: Overcoming the Undertow of Expectations” and describes a dynamic that essentially sets up perceived underperformers to fail. Back in 2011, I wrote about the Pygmalion Effect which explains how once an expectation is set, people will act in certain ways that are consistent with that expectation, causing the results of the expectation to become true - even if the initial expectation is based https://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/leighton-vander-esch-jersey on a false premise.The Set-up-to-fail Syndrome is essentially the exact opposite of the Pygmalion effect.It describes a dynamic in which employees perceived to be mediocre or weak performers live down to the low expectations their managers have for them. Manzoni’s basic premise is that human beings apply labels to others all the time. A positive label in many ways is the equivalent to a get-out-of-jail free card: many mistakes will simply be overlooked or downplayed. A negative label requires an inordinate effort to overcome, if it can be overcome at all. The reason for this is that applying labels helps us make up our minds and form opinions faster without having to painstakingly analyze and evaluate all available facts. This is especially true when there is an information vacuum, such as the information vacuum in the relationship dynamic between fans or media members and players or coaches on a team. Because we don’t really know the players or coaches, we often default to labels that fit our preconceived opinions.“Dak Prescott can’t throw deep.” “Tyrone Crawford is overpaid.” “Kris Richard shouts a lot on the sidelines; ergo he must be a good leader and the next defensive coordinator.” “Garrett is a Princeton grad who often outsmarts himself, particularly in his playcalling. Also www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com , he claps a lot.”“Jerry Jones is an oil-man so he cannot know anything about football”. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. These are labels that cling tighter than amermaid’s T-shirt and last longer than a white crayon. Let’s look at two labels a little more closely. “Dak Prescott doesn’t see open receivers downfield.” One of the newer narratives that have popped up this season is that Prescott regularly misses open receivers. And suddenly folks are seeing open receivers all over the place - but are these fine folks simply seeing what they want to see (or what the narrative dictates they have to see)? Perhaps you remember the following play from the game against the Jaguars:Here’s what Tony Romo had to say about that play:Tony Romo has had spectacular success as an announcer, but this is one play he simply got wrong. It is true that at the very end of the play, Elliott was indeed running towards the end zone without a defender in sight.But if “you’re going to look back at the tape” what you’ll see is that Dak Prescott was flushed out of the pocket by poor pass protection long before Elliott ran free as an unmarked receiver downfield. Here’s a screenshot from the exact play that shows Dak already up and running while Elliott has just barely cleared the linebackers. If you were looking for an open receiver, you would have found one on this play, just like Romo did. Doesn’t mean that the open receiver was an actual viable option on the play.None of this means that Prescott doesn’t miss open receivers. He does. Just like any other QB. It’s just that when you are expecting to see open receivers, you will see open receivers. “Defenses are loading the box because they don’t think Dak Prescott can beat them.”I recently saw a conversation about defenses not taking Dak Prescott seriously as a passer, which is why those defenses were regularly loading the box with “8, 9, sometimes 10 in the box to stop Zeke.”I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 10-man box outside of a goal line stand or perhaps a 4th-and-1 situation, but that’s beside the point. The issue here is the self-fulfilling nature of such labels. Once folks buy into such a label, they will begin to see what they want to see. So every time folks see a safety move down into the box, they’ll take it as further proof that defenses load the box against the Cowboys because they don’t think Prescott can beat them through the air.Never mind that that defenses load the box far less against Elliott than against many other running backs. NFL.com’s Next Gen Stats conveniently keep a tally of how often running backs run against 8+ defenders in the box. Turns out, Ezekiel Elliott faced loaded boxes on just 24% of his runs, which ranks him 20th among the 47 qualifying running backs with at least 40 attempts so far this year. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t situations where defenses do load the box more heavily against Elliott (perhaps on 1st-and-10), but those situations probably have more to do with the threat Elliott poses to defenses than with defenses not taking Prescott seriously as a passer. Because by that circuitous logic Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , defenses would not be not taking guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Matthew Stafford, or Philip Rivers seriously either. These are just two examples of how subscribing to a given label can lead to all sorts of weird mental gymnastics folks go through to support a narrative. In another discussion I saw recently, folks were trying to differentiate between Prescott’s accurate and inaccurate completions in an effort to “prove” Prescott’s lack of accuracy. Analysis paralysis. Manzoni calls it labels, others call it prejudices, filters, or stereotypes. We use them all the time. They are a kind of mental shortcut which we often use to form judgments and make decisions. The downside is that these shortcuts usually involve focusing on just one aspect of a complex problem and ignoring others. My point here is simply to point out the pervasiveness of labeling, how quickly it happens, and how it can distort our view of what’s really going on, like when we try to see something through an out-of-focus lens: we’ll see something for sure, but are we sure we’re seeing the right thing?Subscribing to these labels inevitably leads you down a rabbit hole that ultimately results in the ignorant certainty that you’re right and people that don’t agree with you are stupid. It’s the cardinal sin of many self-styled “analysts”.Most of the labels I used in this post were negative labels associated with the Cowboys, which also exposes my own label: I generally view the Cowboys a little more favorably than many others do. But understanding your own use of labels and questioning their validity is the first step in making yourself a more knowledgeable fan. In sports, there is one sure-fire way of getting rid of negative labels: winning. Winning is a great deodorant. If the Cowboys string together a few wins and suddenly find themselves back in playoff contention, a lot of these negative labels will disappear and will be replaced by - you guessed it - positive labels.Doesn’t make those labels any better or more valid, but at least the mood around Cowboys Nation might improve a little. Nigel Bradham played nearly an entire game with a broken thumb that required surgery afterward.Why?The Philadelphia Eagles are fighting for a playoff spot and needed their best linebacker."It was definitely painful but it was something I had to get through," Bradham said after having six screws inserted into his right hand.Bradham plans to be out there again when the Eagles (5-6) host the Washington Redskins (6-5) on Monday night in an important NFC East matchup. The defense is already missing several key starters and can't afford to lose another one."I want to be out there regardless Dallas Cowboys Hats ," Bradham said. "That's just my thing. I'm always trying to be available."The defending Super Bowl champions need a victory to stay one game behind the division-leading Cowboys (7-5) with a showdown in Dallas coming up next week.Cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills, safety Rodney McLeod and linebacker Jordan Hicks are among the injured starters on Philadelphia's defense. But the Redskins are also dealing with several injuries, including losing quarterback Alex Smith for the rest of the season.Colt McCoy made his first start in four years in a 31-23 loss at Dallas on Thanksgiving. He's had more time to prepare for the Eagles after only a couple walkthrough practices last week."Repetition is king and he doesn't get any reps," coach Jay Gruden said. "When you're calling the plays, making protection adjustments, seeing the route concepts versus cover 2, versus cover 3, versus man to man, sitting your foot in the ground, avoiding the rush. Doing that in practice is very, very important for a quarterback's progression."Here are some things to watch for Monday night: DIFFERENCE MAKEREagles safety Malcolm Jenkins had an interception that turned the momentum and helped the team rally to beat the Giants 25-22 win last week. He filled several roles on defense, including nickel cornerback and linebacker, and also played on special teams."I don't know if we could have won that game without having a guy like Malcolm Jenkins that has the flexibility to move to different positions, and the athletic ability to do it," defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. "It's easier said than done. It's not just knowing what to do. ... but we played at a high level with him in there."AGELESS APAdrian Peterson is on his way to his eighth 1,000-yard rushing season and will face a defense that has struggled against the run Dallas Cowboys Hoodie , allowing 100-yard rushers in three straight games. The 33-year-old slowed down in November, gaining only 171 of his 758 yards. But the Eagles no longer are the same unit that had the NFL's best run defense in 2017."He's found the fountain of youth," Jenkins said of Peterson. "We have to do a good job bottling him up if we're going to have any success."TATE'S IMPACTSince acquiring wide receiver Golden Tate, the Eagles have struggled on offense and Carson Wentz is having a difficult time distributing the ball to his receivers. Tate has only 11 catches for 97 yards in three games. Nelson Agholor has just one reception in the past two games. Alshon Jeffery has 11 catches and no touchdowns in the last three.DEFENSIVE DOWNTURNWashington's defense that was ranked first in the NFL early in the season has slumped in recent weeks, struggling against the run and pass. The Redskins have the fourth-most takeaways but are near the bottom of the league in third-down stops, which comes down to a mix of game plans, ill-timed matchups and missed tackles 鈥?all things they've tried to correct since losing to the Cowboys."It's really about just focusing," linebacker Mason Foster said. "You can't let little things here or there, motions and all that stuff, get you distracted and get your eyes in the wrong place. You end up chasing ghosts. Really it's just about being locked in and trusting the man next to you, get back to the way that we play football and be physical and tackle."ROOKIE'S TIMEUndrafted rookie Josh Adams, who went to Notre Dame, has emerged as Philadelphia's lead running back following a season-high 84 yards on 22 carries last week, including a 1-yard TD run and a 2-point conversion. The Eagles lost Jay Ajayi to a season-ending knee injury and veteran Darren Sproles has been out since Week 1.AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this report.

With his league-rattling trade from the Oakland Raiders to the Chicago Bears Youth Khalil Mack Jersey , Khalil Mack cashed in with a new six-year, $141 million extension that makes him the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history.He's still second fiddle to Von Miller, though.Miller was voted the league's best edge rusher in the latest Associated Press position rankings, earning seven first-place votes in balloting of 10 AP football writers. The three other first-place votes went to Mack.The star Broncos linebacker "is simply the best, as the Seahawks were reminded in the season opener," said AP's Dave Campbell, based in Minneapolis.Miller, who had four quarterback hits, three sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery in wrecking Seattle's game plan in Denver's 27-24 season-opening win, scored 97 points in the 10-points-to-one system. That's four more than Mack and one point better than Tom Brady, who edged out Aaron Rodgers 96-93 in the quarterback rankings last week."The NFL's sack master finds a way to get to the quarterback, even when he's double-teamed," said New York-based Dennis Waszak Jr., who also ranked Miller No. 1. "He's quick, strong, versatile and sometimes unstoppable."Added New York-based Barry Wilner, "Yes, he might also get the nod as the best outside linebacker in the game. That's how versatile and talented Miller is. He makes the Orange Crush go."The AP ranks linebackers in Week 8. Next week, it's running backs.Although "no one can match the former Super Bowl MVP when it comes to rushing off the edge with speed," Bay Area-based Josh Dubow said, "Mack is the highest-paid defensive player for a reason," so he ranked Mack ahead of Miller."Just look at his dominant stats from his four years in Oakland," Dubow said, "Or his first game in Chicago."Mack made an immediate impact in his Bears debut, dominating the Packers last Sunday night until a gimpy Rodgers, who was carted off with a knee injury in the first half, returned after halftime to rally Green Bay from a 20-point deficit for a 24-23 win."Mack is the type of game-wrecking talent that teams only dream of having. Unless you're the Oakland Raiders, who decided they needed to part ways with him Womens Prince Amukamara Jersey ," Waszak said. "Mack paid off immediately for the Bears by forcing two turnovers in the span of six plays in Chicago's opener at Green Bay."Mack had a 27-yard pick-6 and strip-sacked backup QB DeShone Kizer in the red zone."Hugely questionable decision for the Raiders to get rid of him in his prime," said Washington-based Howard Fendrich, who ranked Mack the best pass rusher in the game. "The Bears got themselves a superstar.""His tour de force in the season opener at Green Bay, without any training camp or preseason, shows why Mack could be worth every penny Chicago is paying him," Wilner said.Philadelphia-based Rob Maaddi said that what separates Miller is "his Super Bowl MVP award" for strip-sacking Cam Newton twice in Denver's win over Carolina in Super Bowl 50.What Mack has that Miller doesn't is a Defensive Player of the Year award, something Teresa Walker of Nashville thinks could change this year if last week was any indication of the year Miller could have playing alongside rookie Bradley Chubb, the fifth overall pick in the draft."Miller gets the nod over Khalil Mack thanks to a season opener that was simply amazing," Walker said. "If Miller keeps this up, he should join Mack as a Defensive Player of the Year."Last year, Miller was the hands-down winner in outside linebacker rankings and Mack the runaway winner in defensive end balloting. This year, the AP put pass rushers together in the edge rusher category.The Los Angeles Chargers' Joey Bosa was a distant third, followed by Arizona's Chandler Jones, who led the league with 17 sacks last season and whom Dallas-based Schuyler Dixon calls "one of the most consistent threats in the game.""Bosa's absence was felt in a Week 1 loss to K.C.," said New York-based Simmi Buttar, noting Bosa has 23 sacks in 28 career games. Bosa also will miss Sunday's game at Buffalo because of a bone bruise in his left foot.Houston's J.J. Watt at No. 5 and the Jaguars' Calais Campbell at No. 6 usually rush more from the interior. The Vikings' Everson Griffen was seventh, followed by the Saints' Cameron Jordan, the Chargers' Melvin Ingram, and the Browns' Myles Garrett, the top overall pick in last year's draft.Also receiving votes: DeMarcus Lawrence of the Cowboys, Justin Houston of the Chiefs, Terrell Suggs of the Ravens, Vic Beasley of the Falcons, Cameron Wake of the Dolphins, Ryan Kerrigan of Washington and Carlos Dunlap of the Bengals. T.J. Watt of the Steelers and Yannick Ngakoue of the Jaguars each received one vote. Sam Darnold and the New York Jets did a good job of protecting the ball.They just didn't do very much when they had it.Playing without two of its top receivers, New York managed just 207 yards in a 24-10 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Darnold passed for a career-low 153 yards in his eighth NFL start, and Isaiah Crowell was the Jets' top rusher with a measly 25 yards on 13 carries.Just a quiet, ho-hum sort of day for everyone in green-and-white."We just couldn't really get anything going," Crowell said. "I've got to watch the film http://www.bearsfootballauthentics.com/bobby-massie-jersey-authentic , but I mean it was frustrating at the same time."It was New York's first game since running back Bilal Powell sustained a season-ending neck injury during last weekend's 37-17 loss to Minnesota. Leading receivers Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa were inactive due to injuries, and tight end Neal Sterling departed in the first half with a concussion.Rishard Matthews made his Jets debut after signing with the team on Tuesday, but the veteran receiver was shut out. Asked if New York (3-5) might need to add another offensive option, coach Todd Bowles said they would discuss the possibility this week."We had a lot of new people out there," Bowles said. "I mean they fought hard, they played hard. We're not going to use injuries as an excuse. Just got to make more plays."A week after Darnold threw three interceptions and lost a fumble against the Vikings, the Jets played turnover-free ball against the opportunistic Bears. But they hurt themselves with five false start penalties. The flags contributed to a 3-for-14 performance on third down and just 12 first downs overall, compared to 22 for the Bears."I think the biggest thing for us offensively is just staying in manageable down distances, not getting false starts, not getting penalties," Darnold said.New York's longest play of the day was nearly intercepted by Kyle Fuller, but it went off his hands and Deontay Burnett took the ball to the Chicago 18 for a 29-yard reception with about 12 minutes left. Darnold then finished the drive with a 16-yard touchdown pass to rookie Chris Herndon , making it 17-10 with 11:10 remaining.But the Bears responded with an eight-play, 79-yard drive, culminating in Jordan Howard's 2-yard touchdown run, and the Jets never threatened again."Very proud of the way they fought and stayed together," Bowles said. "This is one of the first games the entire year that we stayed together as a team and fought collectively. Execution was not great, obviously, and we got to make more plays and we know that."The lack of execution was particularly glaring before New York rallied in the final period. The Jets had just four first downs and 98 yards heading into the fourth quarter.Before Herndon caught a TD pass for the third straight week, the Jets' only scoring drive ended with a 42-yard field goal by Jason Myers in the second quarter."It's frustrating for everyone," said Darnold, who was 14 of 29 and was sacked once. "I mean, we just got to play better. We got to, like I said before, it's about staying in manageable down distances. First and second down, getting off the ball, running the football, and completing the football. So that's really all it is. If we can do that we'll be a good football team."Jay Cohen can be reached at s://jcohenap

Colts Notebook: Castonzo again appears poised for 2018 debut | Sports | heraldbulletin.comAnthony Castonzo understands the skepticism.Colts’ O-line vs. Jets might feature ‘first-timers’ with Anthony Castonzo http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-rigoberto-sanchez-jersey , Evan Boehm | FOX59INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Here’s where the Indianapolis Colts are with their injury-ravaged offensive line: the starting unit Sunday against the New York Jets very well could feature two players making their season debuts. Welcome back, Anthony Castonzo.Colts Notebook: Clayton Geathers Returns To Practice | WFNI ESPN 107.5 / 1070 The Fan | Indy's SportsCenterThe Colts were back on the practice field Thursday with some key players still sidelined. How do things look for the Colts’ health wise going into Sunday’s contest with the Jets?Colts Daily Notebook: Leonard, Hooker, Geathers And More Return To PracticeThe Indianapolis Colts saw the return of several key players during Thursday’s practice, including linebacker Darius Leonard and safeties Malik Hooker and Clayton Geathers. What all did we learn on the day?Terrific Opportunity Awaits Colts In Trying To Get Back Towards .500 Record | WFNI ESPN 107.5 / 1070 The Fan | Indy's SportsCenterAfter a difficult start to the 2018 season, the Colts (1-4) have what looks to be a favorable upcoming stretch as they try to climb back towards .500.Colts well aware of Jets' ground attack | Sports | heraldbulletin.comIn this age of pass-happy offenses on record-setting paces, the Colts face a unique challenge Sunday — a team dedicated to the run.Kemoko Turay’s Work Ethic, Attitude Leading To Early SuccessKemoko Turay came to the Indianapolis Colts as a second-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft, but still had some work to do to refine his game as a pass rusher. His hard work all offseason has paid off through five games so far.2018 Colts Fantasy Preview: Colts/Jets, Week 6Some Indianapolis Colts players have been hot plays in fantasy lately. What does it look like for them this week against the New York Jets?COLTS MEDIAFirst Down With Rick Venturi - Offensive Blueprint: JetsFormer Colts Coach Rick Venturi talks with Host Matt Taylor about what the Colts will need to do on offense to beat the New York Jets.Colts Preseason Week 3: Last 5 in, first 5 out In Week 3 of the preseason, the Indianapolis Colts had some very good performances, but also had some pitiful outings as well. As the regular season inches closer, it’s becoming extremely difficult to be able to tell who is battling for a roster spot, and who may be gone anyway and replaced with a roster casualty from another team.Chris Ballard and Frank Reich have their work cut out for them this year, and all they can hope for is a sudden improvement from those near the bottom of the roster. In that same breath Matthias Farley Jersey , they have to be realistic about some of the guys who have risen to be better options than some recent draft picks as well.This week’s lists are a bit of a mixed bag where I’m going more off of talent than attempting to fit in the right amount of players of a specific position to round out the roster. At any rate, here’s what we’ve got following the Colts’ third preseason outing against the San Francisco 49ers.Last 5 in: (48) Ryan GrantI know this feels like a ridiculous addition to the list as he’s pretty clearly the WR3 on the current depth chart. But, I’ve had enough of him quite honestly. He’s had just 1 catch this preseason, and has only been targeted 4 times. Sadly, there is STILL zero chemistry between he and Andrew Luck, despite the coaching staff’s statement of him being a good route runner, and doing all of these little things, etcetera, he’s still not doing anything to exude faith in his abilities on the field.He’s the No. 3 receiver, this shouldn’t be an issue. If there were more depth at the position on the roster right now, he’d be right here where I have him and maybe lower.(49) Ryan DelaireNot everyone on this area of the list is here for the same reason. Where some are on the ‘last 5 in’ because they’re dropping down the charts, Ryan Delaire is here because he’s rising... quickly. Delaire has to be rostered at this point, don’t you think? He notched 2 sacks against the 49ers, and has continued to show that he has a nice bag of moves mixed with great explosion and a high motor. Right now, I’d be giving Delaire snaps over everyone other than John Simon, Jabaal Sheard and Kemoko Turay. This defense needsplaymakers, and the rest of the position isn’t showing that they can be.(50) Zach PascalPascal is still hanging out here Authentic Nate Hairston Jersey , but it’s because he’s been the most consistent of the bunch fighting for those WR4/5 spots. Now he didn’t have any catches in the Colts third preseason game, but he did show that he’s got some reliability in terms of being a special teams return man.This is, however, one of the most fluid positions on the roster and can literally change overnight. This position is making it quite difficult to fill out the roster, but Pascal has a nice combination of ability, size and special teams attributes that should keep him safe depending upon September 2nd waiver claims.(51) Matthew AdamsI’m still a bit fan of Adams to make this roster. Antonio Morrison isn’t even on the roster anymore, and that should be a peak behind the curtain about what Chris Ballard, Matt Eberflus and Frank Reich feel about the rookie’s abilities on the field.He’s proving to be a solid defender as well as a nice special teamer with a good combination of physicality and instincts. (52) Chris MiltonMilton has continued his solid play, thus bumping him up to the ‘5 in’ list. I had him just outside of the 53 last week, but he stacked another solid outing on top of his Week 2 preseason performance with a pass defensed and 5 tackles. His coverage has been very good lately, his physical play has been noticeable, and outside of maybe D.J. White the rest of the group has done very little to earn a roster spot. They’ll all get a lot of snaps to make their case for the coaching staff, but Milton has a leg up on them going into PSW4 in my eyes.(53* | Turbin) Nyheim HinesUnfortunately, Hines is one on this list who is falling. Like a rock, if we’re being honest. Do I expect him to be in this predicament in the coaches eyes? Not really. But, his special teams “ability” is just about out of positive things to say about it, and he isn’t showing out as an effective ball carrier.He is physical Youth Quincy Wilson Jersey , and doesn’t shy away from the contact, but he’s not going anywhere either and that’s what matters most I’d guess. He doesn’t find that next gear when returning the ball, because he’s now in his own head about putting the ball on the ground so many times this preseason. He may be a ‘weapon’ in the slot, or out wide in some packages, but he’s not a good running back or return man right now and that’s honestly where he’s needed most.First 5 out:Tarell BashamI just don’t know how to put it another way. Basham isn’t cutting it as a pass rusher, run stopper or a technician. We’ve talked about him so much over the past 12 months that I feel as if I’ve already written too much about a guy who hasn’t done anything while donning the horseshoe.Basham had one nice snap on Saturday against the 49ers, and beat his man — so, honestly, good for him. However, a guy who didn’t play football last year actually earned the sack on that play because he could bend around the edge, and Basham couldn’t enough to make the play. That guy — Ryan Delaire.Darrell DanielsDaniels is beginning to grow on me. But, that doesn’t mean that he’s any better than Ross Travis or Erik Swoope. Daniels has been pretty solid, while not really flashing much this summer and he’s made some plays.On the other hand he’s missed some opportunities for some plays as well. I really think this just comes down to Reich’s preference and what he feels the offense needs more. Maybe PSW4 gives a bit more insight on how he stacks up against Swoope and Travis, but right now Daniels isn’t on the roster in my mind.Kasen WilliamsWilliams hasn’t done much of late to harden his case for the roster. He didn’t see a single target Saturday, and while he’s not getting noticed, a couple others are. I think you can make the case that Seantavius Jones and Steve Ishmael are showing that they’re more reliable and consistent.Again, the final preseason game will go a long way in allowing Williams to showcase what he can offer the team. I think he’s more talented than Ishmael and Jones http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-clayton-geathers-jersey , but it may all come down to production when it’s all said and done.T.J. GreenGreen left Saturday’s game with an injury, and he’s done little to nothing before that to set himself apart from the rest of the safeties vying for a roster spot. Green has always been one of the most athletic players on the team, but he’s also been one of the least productive as well.At this point, I’d rather have newly signed safety Robenson Therezie make the roster. All that length and speed that Green possesses is nice, don’t get me wrong. But, if he can’t cover and offers very little that someone else can to the roster, what’s the point?Austin HowardThere isn’t a larger disappointment on the roster right now. Not because others haven’t dropped the ball, but because Howard was billed as an average NFL starting right tackle. PFF lied to us. Howard has been nothing short of awful in the preseason, and that’s putting it nicely. He hasn’t been able to hold down the position from a guy who wasn’t in the league last year (J’Marcus Webb), hasn’t beat out a rookie who is actually a guard (Braden Smith) and is being experimented with at tackle, or a guy who’s actually injured (Denzelle Good). He was replaced after the very first drive Saturday, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s cut before September 1.

Kareem Hunt went from the Kansas City Chiefs' practice field to looking for a job in about six hours Authentic Kareem Hunt Jersey , a spectacular fall for the NFL's reigning rushing champion.The Pro Bowl running back had been preparing for Sunday's game at Oakland when a months-old video surfaced online. The footage from a Cleveland hotel security camera showed Hunt shoving and kicking a woman, with police ultimately responding. No charges were filed.The Chiefs immediately sent Hunt home as the TMZ video rippled across social media. An organization that prides itself on providing second chances said in a statement late Friday it had released the 23-year-old star. The team was traveling Saturday.The NFL had no comment Friday night beyond saying Hunt was on the commissioner's exempt list, meaning he can't play or attend games while the league investigates.The question now for both the Chiefs and Hunt is simple: What's next?The Chiefs (9-2) are barreling toward the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, and the loss of their leading rusher is substantial. Hunt already had run for more than 800 yards and had 14 total touchdowns, helping Kansas City form one of the league's most dynamic offenses.His ability to churn out yards on the ground helped the Chiefs put away several games. His ability to catch passes out of the backfield had been just as useful.Yet the falloff to Spencer Ware isn't that significant.The Chiefs' backup was the unquestioned starter heading into last season, even after the team made Hunt their third-round pick. It wasn't until Ware 鈥?whose skill set closely mirrors that of Hunt 鈥?went down with a season-ending knee injury in the preseason that the rookie took over."There was a question whether he would be able to come back from that injury. It was a pretty tough injury to come back from," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said recently. "The last couple weeks he has played good football. You can see where he is more confident each week here."The Chiefs are also confident in backups Damien Williams and Darrel Williams. And with a soft schedule down the stretch, including two games against the Raiders, there is plenty of time for their offense to adjust to life without Hunt in the backfield.So that is what's next for the Chiefs. What happens to Hunt?The Chiefs and the NFL knew what happened in February in Cleveland, and the organization spoke to Hunt on several occasions before handling discipline internally. But neither the team nor the league had seen the video before it became public Friday.The NFL made multiple attempts to obtain it, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation. The hotel informed the league that corporate policy allowed the video to be given only to law enforcement.The NFL then contacted Cleveland police, the person said. Police declined to provide the video. Police and hotel officials have not commented.The video showed Hunt lunging toward a woman and several others in a hotel hallway, and the player being restrained several times before knocking two people down. Two police reports were filed in which each person accuses the other: Hunt is listed as the suspect in one; a woman, Abigail Ottinger, is the suspect in the other.In its grainy and graphic footage, the video brought a new dimension to developments, showing that what Hunt had told the Chiefs was not the case. The team said he was "not truthful in those discussions."The matter brought immediate comparisons to the video of Ravens running back Ray Rice punching a woman in an elevator Authentic Mitch Morse Jersey , which ultimately led to a long legal saga that ended with him never playing in the NFL again.The big difference between Rice and Hunt, though, is this: Rice was on the downward side of his career while Hunt was on the ascent.Being on the exempt list does not prevent another team from taking a chance on a player. That was the underlined when the Washington Redskins signed linebacker Reuben Foster, who had been cut last week after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.The Redskins faced harsh public criticism, and there will no doubt be a similar outcry if a team signs Hunt. But balancing such opposition against the benefits of a young star in his prime is a delicate decision for team executives.Hunt issued a brief apology late Friday, a small first step toward getting another chance. But as the Chiefs get ready to play in Oakland, Hunt will be watching on television.There are many more steps before Hunt takes the field again.If it ever happens. Rookie Sam Hubbard was disappointed as Ryan Tannehill slipped past him, avoiding a sack. A moment later, the football slipped out of the quarterback's grasp and flew right to Hubbard, who was as surprised as anyone to have it in his hands."All I had to do was run straight," Hubbard said.Straight into the end zone he went on a 19-yard fumble return , yet another wacky play that completed Cincinnati's indescribable comeback. The Bengals scored 27 straight points and rallied for a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday that extended their best start since 2015 鈥?the last time they made the postseason.This one is looking a little more like a playoff team each week."The vibe over here is crazy," running back Joe Mixon said.The Bengals (4-1) appeared headed for a desultory home-field loss as the Dolphins (3-2) 鈥?playing with depleted lines 鈥?rolled ahead 17-0 with the help of Jakeem Grant's 70-yard punt return for a touchdown. The Bengals' defensive line pulled it out with two wacky plays.Tannehill tried to avoid a sack by throwing the ball at his tight end's feet. Instead, it slipped from his hand and caromed off Durham Smythe's helmet, flying directly to Michael Johnson. He ran 22 yards untouched for his first NFL touchdown.The defense closed it out when Carlos Dunlap hit a scrambling Tannehill and the ball flew directly to Hubbard for his quick jaunt to the end zone and a 27-17 lead with 2:37 to go.The Dolphins were dazed."I didn't know what happened," said Tannehill, who had three turnovers. "I heard the crowd cheer and (saw) everyone run away from me, so I knew something bad happened."The win left Cincinnati alone atop the AFC North heading into a rivalry game next Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium against the Pittsburgh Steelers http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/laurent-duvernay-tardif-jersey , who have won six straight and 14 of 17 in their series. The Dolphins have to recover from a 38-7 drubbing by New England and their meltdown against the Bengals, with Bears up next.Some takeaways from Paul Brown Stadium: DEFENSE MAKES THE DIFFERENCECincinnati's young defense has given up a lot of yards but made decisive fourth-quarter plays in three of their wins. Safety Clayton Fejedelem returned a fumble for a touchdown to beat Indianapolis, and the Bengals forced a fumble by Joe Flacco that set up their win over the Ravens. On Sunday, they had the two decisive touchdowns."Look at the plays these guys made down the stretch today, and they're rookies," coach Marvin Lewis said.MIXON'S MARKThe Bengals got a break with Mixon, who missed only two games after having a piece of torn cartilage removed from his right knee. With their other veteran running back 鈥?Giovani Bernard 鈥?sidelined with a knee injury, they leaned heavily on Mixon and he came through. Mixon ran 22 times for 93 yards and had three catches, including an 18-yard touchdown.LONG TIMEThe Bengals hadn't been shut out in an opening half and rallied to win since 2004, when they trailed Miami 3-0 at halftime and pulled it out 16-13. It was only the fourth time in franchise history that they scored 24 points in the fourth quarter and won 鈥?they also did it in 1972, 1978 and 2004.RARE COMPANYGrant's 70-yard punt return made him the first Dolphin to score on a reception, a kickoff return and a punt return in the same season. He had a 102-yard kickoff return against Tennessee in the season opener. Grant joins Dante Hall (2003) as the only NFL players with a 100-yard kickoff return, a 70-yard punt return and a 50-yard TD catch in the same season. The last NFL player with a touchdown of all three varieties was the Chiefs' Tyreek Hill in 2016.DEPLETED DOLPHINS' LINEMiami already was missing two starters on the offensive line when left tackle Laremy Tunsil got a concussion early in the fourth quarter. The Dolphins struggled to protect Tannehill the rest of the way, contributing to the Bengals' surge."Our left tackle wasn't in," coach Adam Gase said. "That kind of can do some damage. And when you get behind, it causes problems."

The Dallas Cowboys are getting a few bye week practices in this week http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/chris-jones-jersey , shortened non-padded practices. Nonetheless, they are very important practices as the team starts to incorporate Amari Cooper into the offensive scheme. Cooper was out on the field for the https://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/leighton-vander-esch-jersey first time as a Cowboy today.Of course, the first order of business is for Cooper to learn as much of the offense as he possibly can before the Cowboys take on the Titans on Monday night, November 5th. Cooper noted he’s up to it.At first it seems like it would be easy since Cooper’s previous coordinators come from the Scott Linehan tree. But Cooper notes there are differences. Cooper was able to get in some reps with Dak Prescott today, and likes the way he throws.As for what Cooper can bring to the offense?He already sounds like he’s picking up some Jason Garrett lingo.Stacking good days together is for sure a Garrettism.Here is some quick video of Cooper today. The Cowboys have won back-to-back games for the first time this year, fueled by the efforts and the leadership of running back Ezekiel Elliott.Elliott had 25 touches (187 total yards) against the Eagles last Sunday night at Philly, and he added another 30 on Sunday (201 total yards) at Atlanta. The man who now has 953 rushing yards and 1 Authentic Zack Martin Jersey ,294 yards from scrimmage told PFT by phone after the win against the Falcons that he feels fine.“I really don’t feel banged up,” Elliott said, adding that he’s “ready” for the short-week home game against Washington.Elliott, who had declared that the Week 10 game against the Eagles was a “must-win” contest, said that his teammates have responded well to the message that they need to keep winning if they hope to have a chance to get to the playoffs. And he knows that the offensive line continues to set the tone for the team.“They’ve been destroying people,” Elliott said regarding his blockers.And Elliott made it clear that all motivation has come from the urgency to win. Though he was aware of the talk that his six-game suspension began last year with a game against the Falcons, his only objective against the Falcons this year was to get the victory.Even the criticism from Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman Authentic Tyron Smith Jersey , who suggested it was time for a “complete overhaul” of the organization, didn’t pierce the locker room.“I’m not even 100 percent sure what he said,” Elliott explained to PFT. “The guys don’t really know either. No disrespect to Troy, but that’s not why we’re winning.”They’ll get a chance to keep winning on Thursday, when Colt McCoy (who four years ago engineered a win for Washington in Dallas) comes back to the state where he played high school and college football one game separating the two teams atop the NFC East. www.nflshopoutlet.com/baltimore-ravens

It was fun to see it in person.” As it turns out, Tyreek Hill shares the same fondness for Fitzgerald, as he expressed in a Tweet post-game:While Hill still has a quite a long way to go before he can surpass Fitzgerald in all-time receiving yards, he’s playing at a level — and with a quarterback — that has him on the right track.

It has been a quiet couple of weeks on the No Bull front and I’ve been trying to put some thought into what is the bigger picture problem that the Broncos have. That’s led to an awful lot of looking back to see where we came from and what the team has done to improve when things have been bad in the past.Let me preface this by saying that for whatever reason John Elway Jersey , I’m not feeling my normal levels of “rah rah, Go Broncos” that I have in the past. Fans of other teams have even told me something to the effect of “welcome to what normal feels like.” I like to paint happy trees (RIP Bob Ross) for our fan base and try to focus on the positives. I especially like to do this when I talk big picture instead of just reviewing one game at a time.That’s not where we are as a team though...I can mathematically tell you that we aren’t eliminated from the playoffs. But my eyes tell me this season is over and has been for a few weeks. But enough bemoaning the season we are in...let’s talk about the situation for the team and what needs to change...Problem #1: We don’t have a sound quarterback on the teamYou don’t have to have a good QB to have success in the NFL...not in the short term. Ask our players who won a ring in 2015.Peyton Manning was very much not a good quarterback that season...and pound sand with the talk of how he “raised all boats” and “got us into the right play.”We won that Superbowl in spite of his play, not because of it.Honestly, to get to the root of the problem, we have to climb up above the normal team functions a bit and look at the General Manager of the team: John Elway.When he came on the scene, Tebowmania was gaining steam behind Kyle Orton, who wasn’t an answer to any question about long-term starting NFL quarterbacks. So Elways’ first order of business was to find a legit option.Lucky for his job security and for us as fans, Peyton Manning became a real possibility and Elway masterfully got Manning signed.The problem with the QB position started in 2014. Manning’s body started giving out and he lost a heck of a lot of his already somewhat limited arm. The last half of that season Manning just didn’t look like Manning anymore.I’d hesitate to say we only saw glimpses of the real Manning in the 2015 game against Green Bay...maybe a flash here or there to go with it.But the choices Elway made for the future of the team led us down the path of Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian, and Paxton Lynch.Brock Osweiler is a backup quality NFL player.Trevor Siemian is a real estate agent masquerading as a NFL player.Paxton Lynch is a lottery winning kid who likes video games.By my count, that’s three swings and three very big misses. And now here we are in 2018 halfway into a lost season where the team decided a wily veteran like Manning is the right answer. The team sung Case Keenum’s praises all off season long. It is so good to have a guy at QB who “gets it.”The problem is that the cake is a lie. We all wanted Keenum from 2017 to be at least 75% of what Keenum in 2018 would look like, but that’s just not who he is as a QB. We’re back to having Kyle Orton at the helm of the team and even our lingering hope for Chad Kelly went up in smoke.Solution #1: Get a QuarterbackI know this sounds crazy, but let’s just put the focus right where it needs to be: if you want long-term success in the NFL, you have to have a QB. Teams are pulling in young guys all over the place and grooming into NFL weapons. It is happening in Philly. It is happening in Kansas City. It is happening in frigging Cleveland for crying out loud.John Elway needs to stop giving excuses about how hard it is to find a QB. They are out there. You just need to be willing to sacrifice to make it happen. Most of the young guys that are the new news in the NFL were picked by big time trades happening. Selling future 1st round picks to make some noise needs to not only be an option on the table, but a significant option as far as the future strategy for this team goes.But there’s another problem that needs to be solved in this equation as well...Problem #2: We don’t have a sound coaching staffAgain Shannon Sharpe Jersey , let’s angle back to the guy calling the shots: John Elway. It is very important to realize that this coaching staff who couldn’t coach their way out of a junior varsity high school game is the result of John wanting to go cheap. From what I have seen in the past couple of years, when Gary Kubiak wasn’t working out, Elway figured it was time to bring in some young, cheap options for our coaching staff with a nice big sprinkle of nepotism. Instead of Wade Phillips, we have Joe Woods.Instead of Kyle Shannahan, we have Vance Joseph. The thought process seems to me to be that the Broncos had in place a core team of talent that could carry a young coaching staff through their first couple of years and keep things competitive. The defensive talent alone was so good that surely the team would be at worst 8-8, right?The problem is that that’s not how the NFL works. Yes, young coaches can come in and have vast success. But they don’t do it by coming in and being “old school” in their mannerisms and thinking. Sean McVay isn’t the talk of the NFL because he decided to get great talent on the team and just keep using the same offense that Jeff Fisher was running.With coaching staffs you either need a veteran coaching staff with sound systems that they are able to still adjust and modify with ease or you need invigorated coaching staffs that are innovative and dedicated to making something new and effective.None of the past 3 coaching staffs that Elway has hired fits that bill outside of the microcosm of Wade Phillips’ defense in 2014 and 2015.Solution #2: Blow up this coaching staff and start overDon’t get me wrong here...I am a big fan of continuity for NFL teams from a coaching staff perspective. But the Broncos have the wrong kind of continuity going on. They leaned on Manning’s system to turn into a powerhouse offense and make up for the shortcomings of Mike McCoy and Adam Gase. They leaned on Wade Philips to get their 3rd Super Bowl championship. They are now leaning on depth coaches from the Kubiak tree and a young guy from the Philips tree to try and make a successful coaching staff.All of them are too green (outside of Bill Kollar who is amazing). One of the lessons I’ve learned in life is to judge things by the fruit that they bear. The fruit of this coaching staff is putrid. We’re going on 2 years of soggy, nasty underwear stank up in here.There is no future of this team that is going in the right direction that includes Vance Joseph as a head coach. I’m honestly a little puzzled that he survived the bye week.Problem #3: This team needs accountability, integrity, and leadershipThere are players and even coaches on this team that have these three things in spades, but that’s not what I’m talking about. One of the biggest things that this Broncos team lacks is top-down quality that comes from every level of the employees being held to the Broncos standard.This is likely a failing of winning Super Bowl 50 in all honesty. The GM, front office, coaching staff, and players all got complacent. The standard wasn’t being still looked at. And now they have fallen into a hole.Of the 3 big problems I see here https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Peyton-Manning-Jersey , this is the one that I think turns around with just a little spark. The foundation of the team is its players and I can not say enough that this season I’ve really appreciated how hard they have tried. The games we lose are close because of the effort that a lot of the players are giving and I honestly feel they are trying to hold each other accountable to the best of their ability. Guys like Chris Harris, Jr., Derek Wolfe, Von Miller, Case Keenum, and Domata Peko are all talking the talk and walking the walk.But they can’t overcome the lack of accountability that comes from higher up the ladder. Bad coaching is just allowed to happen. Poor personnel decisions are treated as no big deal. John Elway is likely not on the hook for a lot of the problems he’s caused because he can easily point to this year’s draft success. Solution #3: Rededicate yourself to excellenceThe egos need to go. Vance Joseph and his acting like he’s a big dawg is a frigging joke. He’s still chirping about nonsense with the latest being that the Broncos need to start faster. Shout out to Tim for pointing out right away that the Broncos actually are #2 in the NFL in 1st quarter scoring. John Elway needs to get out of his own way and get a coaching staff here that is dedicated to winning. Elway needs to focus on the personnel and keep his meddling out of the game day decisions.He should also think really long and hard about letting the new Head Coach or Offensive Coordinator head up the QB selection process.But behind all these little things is deciding that the Broncos Standard that Pat Bowlen put in place for decades is front and center. Pat isn’t in a place where he can hold people accountable and if the Broncos don’t start doing that the right way (the Pat Bowlen way), then this team has a lot of bad football ahead of it in the coming years. Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen wasn’t feeling in a very gracious mood.Of course, losing 23-22 to the Broncos on a last-second field goal will dampen the spirits, but Allen wasn’t prepared to give the Broncos very much credit.“No, I don’t think they played well at all,” Allen said, via Eric Williams of ESPN.com. “We dominated the game. Turnovers, we gave them some points and that’s what happened. They suck.”Oh.It was certainly not expected, but the result of the game suggests the Broncos did something right.But it was a day of trash-talk, apparently Brandon McManus Color Rush Jersey , as Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said he and Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers had quite a dialogue all day.“It was crazy,” Harris said of Rivers. “I guess he got that first third down [of the game] on me, he just started screaming at me, talking so much s— to me.“I was like, ‘OK, you want to wake up the dog today? OK, you woke up a sleeping giant, now I’ve got to get you’ 鈥?and that’s what happened. He came out there talking s— to me, and now I’ve got to make him pay.”The Broncos did that the best way possible, by picking off Rivers twice, and getting in position to win the game late. Whether they suck or not.

NEW YORK (AP) — For the past 2½ months Chargers Customized Color Rush Jerseys , one thing has been clear in the NFL: Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are hard to stop.The Saints’ winning streak reached 10 games with their 31-17 victory over Atlanta on Thanksgiving night.The Saints will play their second consecutive Thursday night game when they open Week 13 by facing the Dallas Cowboys.And it’s not the least bit surprising that the surging Saints kept the No. 1 spot in the latest AP Pro32 poll. They received all 12 first-place votes and 384 points in balloting Tuesday by media members who regularly cover the NFL.“Right here, right now, Drew Brees is this year’s MVP in a very crowded field of contenders,” Newsday’s Bob Glauber said. “At almost 40 years old, he’s playing perhaps his best football, with 29 touchdown passes and just two interceptions.”The league’s other 10-1 team, the Los Angeles Rams, stayed at No. 2 after its bye week. And the Kansas City Chiefs, who also were on a bye last week, remained No. 3.Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are still No. 4 after disposing of the New York Jets 27-13.The only change in the top five was the Chicago Bears, who inched up a spot to No. 5 after topping the Lions 23-16 on Thanksgiving as backup quarterback Chase Daniel threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns in place of the injured Mitchell Trubisky.The Los Angeles Chargers jumped two places to No. 6 after dominating Arizona 45-10 as Philip Rivers tied the NFL mark for consecutive completions at 25 and the broke record for the most to start a game.And the Houston Texans, who have won eight in a row after a 0-3 start Chargers T-Shirts , remained No. 7 after topping the Tennessee Titans 34-17 on Monday night.“The surging Texans honored late owner Bob McNair with an eighth consecutive victory behind a powerful ground game and the usual stingy defense,” said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa, Florida.The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped three spots to No. 8 after their 24-17 loss at Denver.“Big Ben blows the game in Denver,” Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki said of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 462 yards but had two interceptions and now has 12 for the season.They will look to rebound Sunday night when they host the Chargers, who are expected to be without running back Melvin Gordon, who sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee during the rout of the Cardinals.The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks, who are both in contention for wild-card spots in the NFC, each moved up a spot to Nos. 9 and 10.Among the teams making the biggest drop was the Cincinnati Bengals, who plummeted five spots to No. 24. They have lost five of six after a 4-1 start and will finish the season without quarterback Andy Dalton, who went on injured reserve with a thumb injury to his throwing hand.“The record may not show it, but this could very well be the NFL’s worst team by year’s end https://www.chargersfanstore.com/hats ,” said Alex Marvez of Sirius XM. Most teams would not want their bye-week break to happen during a four-game winning streak. It comes at a good time, though, for the Los Angeles Chargers.At 5-2, they have a winning record during their off week for the first time since 2014 despite not having one of their key defensive standouts play a game. Los Angeles is hoping Joey Bosa will be available when it begins preparations for its Nov. 4 game at Seattle.Bosa has been out since early in training camp with a foot injury. He has spent the last two weeks rehabbing at the team facility during the team’s road games at Cleveland and Tennessee in London.“I think it’s going to be really important for him,” coach Anthony Lynn said last week about the bye week for Bosa. “It’ll give us another week and not have the stress of missing a game. I think it can do nothing but help him.”The Chargers struggled with their pass rush early in the season, but have 10 sacks over the past three games, which is tied for fourth-most in the league during that span. Defensive ends Isaac Rochell, Melvin Ingram and Darius Philon each have two sacks.Bosa’s return would create more matchup problems for opposing offenses. He has 23 career sacks in two seasons, including an NFL-record 19 in his first 20 games. The Chargers are ranked 16th in the league in total defense and have struggled on third down as opponents are converting 46.1 percent of the time. That is the third-worst percentage in the league.Offensively, Philip Rivers is off to one of the best starts of his 15-year career. He’s second in the league with a 117.8 passer rating and has a completion rate of 69.1 percent. Rivers’ favorite target over the past three games has been Tyrell Williams, who has 10 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns.Melvin Gordon is fifth in the league in yards rushing (466), but missed the game against Tennessee due to a hamstring injury. Lynn said he held Gordon out in the hopes the injury would not linger and that the fourth-year back would be ready for the last two months of the regular season.Gordon is averaging 5.1 yards per carry Chargers Hoodie , which is over a yard better than his career average of 3.95 yards. He also has 30 receptions and is on pace to surpass his career high of 58 from last season.“I don’t know what it is, we’re just ‘clicking’ right now,” Williams said. “Everybody is trusting the running backs to run and catch. Receivers are making plays and the offensive line is playing really well.”The Chargers will also need to make a decision about their kicker next week. Caleb Sturgis has missed four extra points in five games before suffering a quadriceps injury on Oct. 10. Michael Badgley has made all three of his field-goal attempts and is 7 of 7 on extra points.Los Angeles is looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2013 and has put itself in good position. Its schedule is favorable in November as it will face only one team with a winning record. The December slate will be more of a challenge as it includes a late-season trifecta against Cincinnati (Dec. 9), at Kansas City (Dec. 13) and then Baltimore on Dec. 22.“We’ve kind of picked up, in some ways, where we left off last year (when the Chargers won nine of their final 12),” Rivers said. “We need to keep it going, though. We know the great teams sustain that over the long haul.”

And the Kansas City Chiefs, who also were on a bye last week, remained No. 3.Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are still No. 4 after disposing of the New York Jets 27-13.The only change in the top five was the Chicago Bears, who inched up a spot to No. 5 after topping the Lions 23-16 on Thanksgiving as backup quarterback Chase Daniel threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns in place of the injured Mitchell Trubisky.The Los Angeles Chargers jumped two places to No. 6 after dominating Arizona 45-10 as Philip Rivers tied the NFL mark for consecutive completions at 25 and the broke record for the most to start a game.And the Houston Texans, who have won eight in a row after a 0-3 start Chargers T-Shirts , remained No. 7 after topping the Tennessee Titans 34-17 on Monday night.“The surging Texans honored late owner Bob McNair with an eighth consecutive victory behind a powerful ground game and the usual stingy defense,” said Ira Kaufman of Fox 13 in Tampa, Florida.The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped three spots to No. 8 after their 24-17 loss at Denver.“Big Ben blows the game in Denver,” Fox Sports’ John Czarnecki said of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for 462 yards but had two interceptions and now has 12 for the season.They will look to rebound Sunday night when they host the Chargers, who are expected to be without running back Melvin Gordon, who sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee during the rout of the Cardinals.The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks, who are both in contention for wild-card spots in the NFC, each moved up a spot to Nos. 9 and 10.Among the teams making the biggest drop was the Cincinnati Bengals, who plummeted five spots to No. 24. They have lost five of six after a 4-1 start and will finish the season without quarterback Andy Dalton, who went on injured reserve with a thumb injury to his throwing hand.“The record may not show it, but this could very well be the NFL’s worst team by year’s end https://www.chargersfanstore.com/hats ,” said Alex Marvez of Sirius XM. Most teams would not want their bye-week break to happen during a four-game winning streak. It comes at a good time, though, for the Los Angeles Chargers.At 5-2, they have a winning record during their off week for the first time since 2014 despite not having one of their key defensive standouts play a game. Los Angeles is hoping Joey Bosa will be available when it begins preparations for its Nov. 4 game at Seattle.Bosa has been out since early in training camp with a foot injury. He has spent the last two weeks rehabbing at the team facility during the team’s road games at Cleveland and Tennessee in London.“I think it’s going to be really important for him,” coach Anthony Lynn said last week about the bye week for Bosa. “It’ll give us another week and not have the stress of missing a game. I think it can do nothing but help him.”The Chargers struggled with their pass rush early in the season, but have 10 sacks over the past three games, which is tied for fourth-most in the league during that span. Defensive ends Isaac Rochell, Melvin Ingram and Darius Philon each have two sacks.Bosa’s return would create more matchup problems for opposing offenses. He has 23 career sacks in two seasons, including an NFL-record 19 in his first 20 games. The Chargers are ranked 16th in the league in total defense and have struggled on third down as opponents are converting 46.1 percent of the time. That is the third-worst percentage in the league.Offensively, Philip Rivers is off to one of the best starts of his 15-year career. He’s second in the league with a 117.8 passer rating and has a completion rate of 69.1 percent. Rivers’ favorite target over the past three games has been Tyrell Williams, who has 10 receptions for 302 yards and three touchdowns.Melvin Gordon is fifth in the league in yards rushing (466), but missed the game against Tennessee due to a hamstring injury. Lynn said he held Gordon out in the hopes the injury would not linger and that the fourth-year back would be ready for the last two months of the regular season.Gordon is averaging 5.1 yards per carry Chargers Hoodie , which is over a yard better than his career average of 3.95 yards. He also has 30 receptions and is on pace to surpass his career high of 58 from last season.“I don’t know what it is, we’re just ‘clicking’ right now,” Williams said. “Everybody is trusting the running backs to run and catch. Receivers are making plays and the offensive line is playing really well.”The Chargers will also need to make a decision about their kicker next week. Caleb Sturgis has missed four extra points in five games before suffering a quadriceps injury on Oct. 10. Michael Badgley has made all three of his field-goal attempts and is 7 of 7 on extra points.Los Angeles is looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2013 and has put itself in good position. Its schedule is favorable in November as it will face only one team with a winning record. The December slate will be more of a challenge as it includes a late-season trifecta against Cincinnati (Dec. 9), at Kansas City (Dec. 13) and then Baltimore on Dec. 22.“We’ve kind of picked up, in some ways, where we left off last year (when the Chargers won nine of their final 12),” Rivers said. “We need to keep it going, though. We know the great teams sustain that over the long haul.”

The alleged victim in the February 2018 incident involving former Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt initially wanted to press charges. Now Len Dawson Jersey Salute to Service , 19-year-old Abby Ottinger simply wants to be left alone.A comprehensive review of the situation conducted by ESPN’s included an effort to speak to Ottinger. A member of her family told ESPN on Wednesday that “the whole incident has been very difficult for her and that all she wants now is her privacy.”This means that Hunt most likely won’t face criminal charges. Ottinger’s lack of cooperation, however, won’t keep the NFL from taking action against Hunt, because the evidence of what Hunt did appears on a video that the NFL was unable to obtain, but TMZ wasn’t.Some league insiders have speculated that Hunt and Ottinger reached a settlement. However, Hunt’s explanation from a Sunday interview with ESPN’s Lisa Salters created the impression that Hunt doesn’t know much if anything about Ottinger, making a settlement unlikely (unless it was handled largely if not exclusively by Hunt’s lawyer). Others have suggested that Ottinger had a change of heart once she realized that the facts of the case would include an allegation that she directed racial slurs at Rayshawn Watkins Marcus Allen Jersey , a friend and former teammate of Hunt’s.Regardless, the account from ESPN creates a clear impression that management at the hotel where Hunt had leased an apartment was motivated to protect Hunt, and that police weren’t motivated to do much of anything, other than defer to hotel management. 29-year-old Derek Szeto, a bystander who sensed that the hotel wasn’t taking the situation seriously and “was acting weird,” was detained by police after using his phone to record video of his interactions with hotel officials and refusing to surrender it to police.At a time when the NFL has absorbed plenty of criticism for its investigation of the situation, it’s clear based on the ESPN report that the hotel and police didn’t seem to be all that inclined in getting to the truth Authentic Dee Ford Jersey , which necessarily made it much harder for the NFL to figure out what had transpired. With the afternoon in the bag, here’s a look at where things stand for the 12 playoff seeds.Chiefs (12-4): Sunday’s win over the Raiders gave the Chiefs the No. 1 seed in the AFC.Patriots (11-5): Sunday’s win over the Jets gave the Patriots the No. 2 seed in the AFC.Texans (11-5): The Texans have clinched the AFC South, and the No. 3 seed, with their win over the Jaguars.Ravens (10-6): The Ravens secured the AFC North title, and the No. 4 seed, by beating the Browns.Chargers (12-4): The Chargers beat the Broncos, but Kansas City’s win knocks the Chargers to the No. 5 seed.Titans (9-6): The Titans will clinch the No. 6 seed with a win over the Colts.Colts (9-6): The Colts clinch the No. 6 seed with a win over the Titans.Steelers (9-6-1): The Steelers will be the No. 6 seed if the Colts and Titans tie.Saints (13-3): The NFC South champions are locked in as the No. 1 seed.Rams (13-3): The NFC West champions nailed down the No. 2 seed by beating the 49ers.Bears (12-4): The NFC North champions are the No. 3 seed.Cowboys (10-6): The NFC East champions are locked in as the No. 4 seed.Seahawks (10-6): The Seahawks secured the No. 5 seed with Sunday’s win over the Cardinals. (With the Vikings losing Limited Eric Berry Jersey , the Seahawks would have had it anyway.Eagles (9-7): The Eagles secured the No. 6 seed by beating Washington, and via Minnesota’s loss to Chicago.Vikings (8-7-1): The Vikings failed to qualify for the playoffs, by losing to the Bears and by the Eagles winning.

Leading up to the trade deadline https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Rex-Burkhead-Jersey , the New England Patriots were reportedly trying to add to their wide receiver group. Two of the most popular names to get linked to the team as potential targets were the Denver Broncos’ Demaryius Thomas and the Detroit Lions’ Golden Tate. However, neither will wear the the navy and silver anytime soon – even though both did indeed get traded today.The first to move was Thomas, who was traded from Denver to the Houston Texans (via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport):Not even an hour later, Golden Tate changed teams as well as the Lions traded him to the Philadelphia Eagles (via ESPN’s Adam Schefter):While there are no reports about serious talks between the Patriots and Lions regarding Tate, New England was reportedly in on Thomas until the very end. According to NFL Network’s Mike Giardi, the team made a “competitive offer” but a deal ultimately did not get reached due to the financial aspect: the Patriots wanted Denver to absorb some of the wide receiver’s cap hit but the team was not willing to do that.Even though the two veterans are no longer available James Harrison Jersey , the Patriots could still be active at the wide receiver position. According to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe, the Texans have called about Phillip Dorsett but not much progress has been made just yet. Dorsett should still be seen as a player to watch considering that he is in the final year of his rookie deal and had his role reduced to that of a depth option over the last few weeks. After skipping much of the early season, the New England Patriots are once again providing practice players of the week after victories. The team announced five practice players of the week from the team’s 25-6 win over the Buffalo Bills.Linebacker Calvin Munson likely practiced as the Bills linebacker combo of Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds, a surprisingly good duo tasked with covering James White out of the backfield and Julian Edelman in the middle of the field. Both White and Edelman had strong days.Defensive end Derek Rivers likely practiced as a combination of Bills pass rushers Lorenzo Alexander and Jerry Hughes. While LaAdrian Waddle wasn’t perfect, Trent Brown had a strong day on the left side.Defensive back David Jones was probably the combination of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer, the Bills safety duo that have a knack for forcing turnovers. The Patriots didn’t turn the ball over for the first time all year.Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson won for the second-straight week and probably had a full plate at practice with so many injuries at running back. I wouldn’t be surprised if he helped practice as LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory and got credit for learning how to play running back for an entire game. Major props to Patterson.Offensive lineman Ted Karras likely helped out as the Bills interior linemen; the Patriots run defense absolutely stuffed Buffalo’s run game and Karras was likely the guinea pig at practice.—Week 1: DL Trent Harris Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey , OL James Ferentz, DB Keion Crossen, DL Geneo Grissom, DL Deatrich Wise Jr., DB J.C. Jackson.Week 7: RB Kenneth Farrow, WR Cordarrelle Patterson Jeremy Hill Color Rush Jersey , OL James Ferentz, DB Nate Ebner, DL Frank Herron.

Hooray Drew Brees holds several major NFL passing records. By any measure, the Saints quarterback is one of the best players in NFL history.But while Brees has made 11 Pro Bowls, only once has he earned first-team All-Pro. That year, 2006, Brees’ former teammate, Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, gained 2 https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Brian-Allen-Jersey ,323 yards from scrimmage and scored 31 total touchdowns. Tomlinson received 44 of 50 MVP votes, with Brees getting four and Peyton Manning two that season.That’s as close as Brees ever has come to winning MVP. Until now.Last weekend solidified Brees as the MVP favorite.He is 9-1 with 25 touchdowns and one interception after the Saints won their ninth consecutive game with a no-doubt victory over the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles.Brees has beaten the Rams, who beat Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs on Monday night. Yes, Mahomes threw six touchdowns against the Rams, but he also had five turnovers. In the Chiefs’ other loss, Mahomes threw two interceptions against the Patriots and was outplayed by Tom Brady. Mahomes is expected to have many more chances to win an MVP award.Of the other candidates:Philip Rivers‘ poor decision, which stopped the clock late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Broncos, did damage to his campaign.Jared Goff? Todd Gurley? Aaron Donald? That’s the problem with the Rams: Who is their MVP? Brady is Brady Jacob McQuaide Color Rush Jersey , but this isn’t his best season with seven interceptions and a 94.7 passer rating.Ben Roethlisberger might have the best shot to knock off Brees, with his 1-yard, game-winning touchdown run with five seconds remaining Sunday keeping him in the running. (No pun intended.)The award, though, is Brees’ to lose.And it won’t be a lifetime achievement award. Brees, who twice has earned NFL Offensive Player of the Year and once was Comeback Player of the Year, is earning it by being the best player in the NFL this season.

It’s a pretty common occurrence for fans and analysts to make bold predictions about a game or season. If the prediction doesn’t come true https://www.thesaintsfanshop.com/Craig-Robertson-Jersey , then that’s OK - you said it was bold! If it DOES come true, though... now you look like a genius!So in that spirit, some of the Canal Street Chronicles writers were asked to share with me a bold prediction or two for the Week 11 of the regular season for the New Orleans Saints: a battle in the dome against the defending Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. This is their chance to look brilliant!Here are a few of the bold predictions provided by some of the contributors at Canal Street Chronicles:22 Goes Ham Again - Mark Ingram has second 100 yard game of the season and scores two TDs. (Bob)Pick City - Marshon Lattimore records his first interception of the year. (Brenden)Secondary Holds - Saints defense keeps all Eagles WRs under 100 yards as a unit. (Butler) AK-41 to the House- Alvin Kamara scores on a punt return. (Bob)New Orleans Special - Teddy Bridgewater passes for a TD. (Chad)Dez Who? - Brandon Marshall scores a touchdown. (Bob)Here are my three bold predictions for the game:Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty ImagesDrew Brees catches a pass.Michael Thomas is not the Saints-leading receiver.Saints defense sacks Wentz four times.As a fun aside, I have an Eagles (@mcmillaneli on Twitter) fan chime in with his own bold predictions:Eagles sack Brees four times in the game, quadrupling their total from the previous four weeks combined.Golden Tate goes for 100+ yards and a TD.Eagles win.So there are some of our bold predictions for the game. What are yours? Friday’s PFT Live featured renewed praise for Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who had the best statistical performance of his career on Thursday night. Which quickly became a question of whether which quarterback a team should prefer: Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes.Mahomes was the no-brainer choice in a Twitter poll. And he also was the no-brainer choice for the Chiefs on draft day 2017.Input received from multiple sources makes it clear that the pre-draft work led to the inescapable conclusion that Mahomes was the far better prospect. As one source put it, Mahomes was viewed as a once-in-20-years prospect.The most obvious difference between Mahomes and Watson, as another source put it, came from Mahomes’ accuracy on deep throws and overall arm velocity demonstrated by Mahomes. Another big factor was Mahomes’ ability to make so-called “funny body” throws, finding a way to deliver the ball with the desired oomph and accuracy even when on the run or otherwise not able to use his legs or core to generate force on the throw.“He can make any throw off platform or without generating lower body force,” another source said. “Freaky.”That’s not a knock on Watson. He was regarded as a “fantastic kid” with a good skill set and good college game film. But the thinking was that Mahomes is a rare talent Cameron Meredith Jersey , the best player in the draft, possessing everything the Chiefs wanted in a quarterback: Arm strength, awareness, accuracy, mobility, playmaking, intelligence, etc.Mahomes also demonstrated a significant gap over Watson by the way he quickly absorbed and regurgitated information regarding plays and concepts.It’s unclear why none of the quarterback-needy teams in picking in the first nine that year (or the Bills, who traded out of the tenth spot) came to that same conclusion, or why the media never caught on to the perception that Mahomes was regarded by multiple coaches who know a thing or two about quarterbacks as the best player in the draft. The West Coast cabal was all over Mahomes, with men like Chiefs coach Andy Reid Rick Leonard Color Rush Jersey , Saints coach Sean Payton, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy keenly aware of the things Mahomes could do at the next level.And it would have been very interesting to see how things would have played out in New Orleans if the Chiefs hadn’t made the move up to No. 10, one spot ahead of the Saints. Per a source who was present at the time, Saints starting quarterback Drew Brees and a couple of guests showed up unexpectedly in the Saints draft room not long before the Saints were due to be on the clock, and while Mahomes was still on the board. According to the source, the situation prompted Payton to give Brees a head’s up that the pick could indeed be a quarterback.If the pick had been Mahomes, it’s entirely possible that he would be getting ready to play for the Saints tonight at Minnesota, and that Brees would have been playing for someone else this year.Possibly, Brees would have been playing the Vikings.

A Pittsburgh Steelers player winning player of the week honors has become something of a biweekly affair in 2018 after James Conner was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday for his efforts against the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.Conner rushed for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns from 24 carries on the day and added another 66 yards from 5 receptions. Not only was it his highest single game rushing total of the season Hines Ward Jersey , it was also his second best ever receiving total and the first time he recorded more than 200 scrimmage yards in a single game in his career. Having scored two touchdowns in each of his last three games, Conner has set a new record in Pittsburgh, achieving a feat the great Steelers running backs like Franco Harris and Jerome Bettis never managed to do. The Pittsburgh running back becomes the third Steelers player to win a weekly award in 2018. T.J. Watt has won defensive player of weeks honors twice this season, once in Week 1 and again in Week 5 Lynn Swann Color Rush Jersey , while Ben Roethlisberger won the offensive award in Week 3. Much like they are for Watt, the Browns must already be Conner’s favorite team to play.Currently third in the NFL in rushing with 599-yards, Conner only sits behind Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams (800) and Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys (619). He is also second in the league with nine rushing touchdowns behind Gurley (11). If he can maintain this pace throughout the remainder of the season, Conner would eclipse Le’Veon Bell’s career best rushing total with the Steelers of 1 https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Kevin-Greene-Jersey ,361 yards. The Pittsburgh Steelers list of inactive players for Week 12 looks rather familiar again this week with Marcus Gilbert and Stephon Tuitt missing their sixth and second games of the season respectively due to injury. However, there is one slight change to the usual group of names who have become regular features on the weekly inactives report this season after the coaching staff opted to have Matthew Thomas sit for the first time this season, replaced on the game day roster by Brian Allen. Matt Feiler will once again start in place of Gilbert, despite his questionable designation on the injury report on Friday Greg Lloyd Jersey , while Tyson Alualu and Javon Hargrave will see an increase in their snaps without Tuitt in the lineup. L.T. Walton will also get another opportunity to suit up on game day and should see some playing time as their backup. For Mason Rudolph, Zach Banner, Marcus Allen and Justin Hunter, it is business as usual this Sunday watching from the sidelines. Barring injury Ben Roethlisberger Color Rush Jersey , their best chances of seeing any real game action this year might be in Week 17 if the Steelers are far enough ahead in the standings to be able to rest their starters ahead of the playoffs.

It was an incredible comeback win for the Denver Broncos. It was a comeback that never should have happened. Case Keenum’s final game winning drive was exciting Brandon McManus Color Rush Jersey , and filled Broncos Country with joy, but they never should have trailed the Los Angeles Chargers in the first place. As Ian St. Clair and I discussed on the MHR Radio Podcast, once again, we see that Vance Joseph and his staff have zero understanding of situational football. It isn’t that the team is unprepared, or untalented, or lacks desire. No, this team lacks a leader that can make the right decisions when the game is on the line. It all started in the first half. After telling the world that he wanted his team to start faster, Vance Joseph’s team went out and failed to score in the first quarter. It was the first time they failed to score in the first quarter since Week 2, another win in the division against the Raiders. The Broncos scored their first points on Phillip Lindsay’s 41 yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He continues to be a huge bright spot for Denver, and a front runner for Offensive Rookie of the Year. After kicking off, Philip Rivers started driving the Chargers down the field, but was intercepted by Chris Harris Jr. The Broncos moved the ball into field goal range, but stalled.Rather than take the points, and extend their lead, Vance Joseph elected to go for it on 4th and one from the 16 yard line. If they pick it up, everyone is happy. They didn’t. The benefit of hindsight makes it easy to judge, so some will argue he did the right thing, but this would become a factor as the game went on. Denver won by two. The math isn’t that hard. Joseph’s decision to go for it took points off the board, and helped to make the comeback necessary.In the third quarter another interception brought Denver into the red zone. Von Miller’s interception return to the Chargers’ 18 yard line led to an eventual ‘welcome back’ touchdown for Royce Freeman. He and Lindsay keep showing up each week and having a huge impact. The Broncos had kept the game close Shane Ray Jersey , and were in another tight game.The defense forced a three and out on the next Chargers possession. The Broncos ensuing drive was like watching a futures game. Lindsay and Freeman were big parts, and Sutton snagged a short pass over the middle that he turned into a 39 yard gain. Eventually, Lindsay scored from the Wildcat formation. The formation worked so well that Denver ran the same play when going for the two point conversion. This time they ran it with Keenum, and he failed to convert, or did he. Replay showed conclusively that the ball crossed the goal line before his knees hit the ground. As I said on the podcast, rather than challenge and get the two points, Joseph elected to hold onto his challenge flag. This decision would factor in once again. As the game wound down, the Broncos worked themselves into a position to win. After Rivers inexplicably crumbled under the pressure, Denver got the ball with two minutes left, down by two. From their own eight yard line, Denver needed to get into field goal range.Emmanuel Sanders 38 yard catch on second and 5 put the team on track. After an offensive pass interference, Sutton caught the ball and took off on 3rd down. He raced down the middle of the field for 30 yards, putting the Broncos in perfect position to win the game. Brandon McManus strolled out and kicked a redeeming 34-yard game winning field goal as time expired.It was a great win, but it continued to highlight the biggest issue on the team. The Broncos have played in mostly close games, which they could have won. However, Vance Joseph and his staff continue to make decisions that put the team in difficult scenarios. If Joseph kicks the field goal early on, or challenges the two point conversion, the game looks completely different.The one big takeaway from the Broncos win against the Chargers has to be that Vance Joseph is failing Football 101. The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Shelby-Harris-Jersey , Spotify, Acast, Stitcher, TuneIn and a few other podcast hosts. Please subscribe to the one that fits your fancy, and also rate and review what you hear. If you were to enter “Broncos” yesterday on social media or Google your feed would have been full with news that John Elway tried to bring Mike Shanahan back into the fold last year. Reports differ, but the gist is that the team’s CEO and President Joe Ellis nixed it. That and the way the Vance Joseph era is going out with a whimper got me wondering: with the way the Broncos ownership situation and apparent power struggle between Ellis and Elway has come into the spotlight, what coaching candidates will seriously consider a vacated head coaching gig next year? There are mitigating circumstances, but Denver has had 4 coaches in 6 years if they go to hire a new one next year. That combined with a number of openings around the league means that Elway could have a hard time picking up his top choice.Unless it was Mike Shanahan. We had quite the discussion about this among the MHR crew yesterday. I went into it as Switzerland. I was neither for, nor against Shanahan. With John Harbaugh all but assured another year with the Ravens I was leaning towards Adam Gase or someone like Matt LaFleur, but the more I thought about it; perhaps Shanny makes sense.The Broncos need work on the offensive side of the ball, but do have the tools to run the patented zone run scheme made popular by Kubiak and Shanahan. Remember those rumors that Kubes wanted to be an Offensive Coordinator? He may not need to go too far to do it. Elway is almost certain to draft a new franchise QB in the draft next year and it’s best for the team’s long term viability to find a coaching staff that will aid in his development. I personally believe Paxton Lynch wasn’t ever going to succeed, but he didn’t seem to get much help from the Mike McCoy/Bill Musgraves staff in 2017. The Kubiak/Shanny system made chicken sandwiches out of Brian Griese and Jake Plummer. Jay Cutler went to the Pro Bowl in Shanahan’s last season. There’s reason to believe Shanny would find a way to rebuild the receiving corps if Emmanuel Sanders can’t return to health next year. There would be questions, obviously. Denver’s defense is in a great spot with Von Miller and Bradley Chubb up front, but will need a new defensive coordinator if Joseph and Woods are canned. Shanahan’s tenure ended because his defense became a complete albatross. He’d really need someone to come in and essentially lead that side of the ball.

The curse has been lifted.It is perhaps a sign of how ubiquitously disappointing life has been for Chargers fans in recent years that initial instinct when reading that sentence may be to go: Curse?Which one?The Chargers curse is a complex one Desmond King Color Rush Jersey , combining injuries, bad coaching, terrible mistakes, and an incredibly unhealthy dose of luck into one big ball of pain and suffering. Even though the team were coming into Thursday Night with an incredible 10-3 record, the general consensus was that they needed a real statement win to announce to the world that this Chargers team are legitimate contenders.Someone pass me a damn megaphone.In the last three weeks, the Chargers have beaten both Kansas City and Pittsburgh. On the road. Oh, and both games were in primetime. Make no mistake about it, this is a completely different Chargers team to the one that we’re used to.Beating Seattle was nice, but it didn’t feel like a statement win. To go into Pittsburgh and come back from a 16 point deficit? Incredible, but it was about time the Chargers had a game like that bounce their way. We needed to see more before we could believe. We demanded more. We craved it; kindred spirits with vultures, hunting for our next meal. The hunger was overwhelming, but on Thursday Night, we were satiated. For the first time since 2013, it feels fulfilling to be a Chargers fan.It’s possible - certainly from an outsiders perspective - to point to this simply being a case of luck, a regression to the mean. Statisticians will point to the fact that unlucky teams usually have their luck turn around sooner rather than later, and so can expect to experience a dramatic uptick in fortunes. That hasn’t the case with the Chargers. There’s bad luck, and then there’s consistently being vehemently snake-bitten by injuries to key players, year after year. There’s bad luck, and then there’s not only failing to regress to the mean with the results of one score games, but actually getting worse in them:There’s bad luck, and then there’s losing games that would only happen once in 30 million times:If it was simply down to bad luck Corey Liuget Color Rush Jersey , I’d hate to meet the guy that Mike McCoy upset. After being unlucky with the Chargers, he proceeded to be so terribly unlucky that both the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals fired him before he’d even had a full season there to show them the true power of running up the middle (possibly through some form of delayed handoff).No, this wasn’t about luck, but that other magic word: Culture. Culture is often used as a senseless buzzword, a throwaway comment when a media personality is asked why a team they’ve forgotten exist are suddenly winning games. “Oh, I just think they’ve done a great job of changing around the culture.” Uh uh. Not today, Stephen A.With the Chargers, though, it’s more than a meaningless buzzword. It’s the truth. Ask Joey Bosa, who said that “We needed a strong head coach to come in & make players take accountability for what they do, which there wasn’t enough of last year. I feel like if we had a coach, nothing against Mike McCoy, I just don’t think he had the voice to really get s--t.”In McCoy’s place, the Chargers hired Anthony Lynn, billed as a players coach with the mentality needed to get things done. The first four things he did were - well, lose four games. The Chargers went 0-4 to begin the 2017 season, but no matter. Culture doesn’t change overnight, and neither does a curse. The Chargers had a game-tying FG against the Denver Broncos blocked, missed a game-winning one against the Miami Dolphins, and lost by just two points to the eventual Superbowl Champions. Any sense of optimism renewed through a three game winning streak was quickly relinquished, however Dan Feeney Color Rush Jersey , after Travis Benjamin ran a punt into the wrong endzone against the New England Patriots before possibly the most cursed loss of them all against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Despite the Jaguars scoring on a 56 yard fake punt, The Chargers would be in pole position to win the game, intercepting Blake Bortles twice within the last two minutes. Instead, they gave the ball right back to the Jaguars both times, who’d drive down the field to kick a game-tying FG, before kicking another to win it in OT. Oh, and that kicker was Josh Lambo, who the Chargers had cut for being too inconsistent. The Chargers had five different kickers that year, all of whom were consistently awful. The Jaguars loss was a dark moment as a Chargers fan, but it was simply a matter of entrenching Lynn in the true nature of the beast. For Lynn to drag the team up, he had to first submerge himself in the murkiest depths of the quagmire that is Chargers football. Drag them up he did, with the Chargers finishing the season winning six of their last seven games and only narrowly missing out on a playoff spot. When Lynn sent his team out to run it at the goal-line four times in a row against the Denver Broncos, he flexed his muscles - literally - and shouted at his team to ‘bow up.’That moment was the the start of the realization that things were changing for the better in Los Angeles - the team has gone 18-6 under Lynn since that game - and it all culminated beautifully on Thursday Night. With the Chargers on a short week going on the road to the loudest stadium in the NFL, to face the best team in the NFL - who they’d lost the last nine games to - they should have had no chance. Despite being down by 14 points, and despite being without key players such as Melvin Gordon and Keenan Allen, the Chargers found a way to be a PAT away from taking the game to overtime. Overtime? Not with Anthony Lynn. The Chargers were going for the win. Time seemed to freeze, but on reflection, that was probably just the Kansas City defense. Mike Williams caught the pass, the Chargers won the game, and grabbed a win that was undoubtedly important for their record, but even more important as a symbolic victory.The same old Chargers? Think again. This is a team as talented as any in the NFL Kyle Emanuel Color Rush Jersey , and one that are finally - finally! - ready to compete with the best the league has to offer.That’s not luck. That’s Lynn.And he’s got the Chargers loaded for January. The NFL season is a long one. Sundays go by quick, but the days in between make it a long season. A lot can happen, things can change, there is always a possibility for a turn of events.The Los Angeles Chargers started a little slower than we would have liked. However, they have been firing on all cylinders since their Week 3 loss against the 9-1 Rams. Philip Rivers is playing at an MVP-caliber level, Melvin Gordon has established himself as an elite running back in this league, the defense has been getting better and better despite the absence of Joey Bosa.They sit at 7-2 entering Week 11. That record is the second best in the AFC behind the 9-1 Kansas City Chiefs. The only problem is that those two teams play in the same division. If both teams continue at their pace, the Chargers could very well be the second best team (record-wise) in the conference, but would end up needing to win three road games to reach the Promised Land.The last team to both reach and win a Super Bowl as a team who did not earn a first-round bye was the 2012 Baltimore Ravens. Out of the ten Super Bowl participants since those Ravens won the infamous power-outage Super Bowl in New Orleans, nine of them earned the number one seed in their conference. The lone exception was the 2016 Atlanta Falcons who earned the second seed but still played both their playoff games at home.Those Ravens had a home playoff game in the first round. The last team to win the Super Bowl as a wild card team was the 2010 Green Bay Packers.It is a trend for a reason. Five straight years of Super Bowl participants who did not have to go on the road puts emphasis on how home-field advantage is key and earning a first round bye is key.It is hard to win in the playoffs. It is hard to win on the road. These teams over the last five years have been allowed an extra week of practice. An extra week to get healthy. Riding the momentum wave and coming in “hot” is overrated.The Chargers are well-rounded enough to go into Houston/Pittsburgh/New England/Kansas City to win a playoff game. They are well-coached and have a veteran leader at quarterback who is playing the best ball of his life. They have a great running game and defense; both essentials to postseason success. If any team can pull off what has not been pulled off since The Office was still airing new episodes, these Chargers are that team.That being said, the Chargers cannot have the mentality of “Oh well, we are good enough to win as a fifth seed so let’s just get ready for that.”There is unfinished business. There is a mission to be completed.The Chargers know what they have to do from here on out.Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsCircle these three dates on your calendar:11/19 - Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Rams12/2 - Los Angeles Chargers at Pittsburgh Steelers12/13 - Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City ChiefsThe Chargers have the chance to gain ground and even take a lead in their division over the next four weeks of the season.The Chiefs were going to be in Mexico City to face the Rams on Monday Night Football this upcoming week, but concert fans ruined the field and all players who tried playing on that field risked tearing ACLs. The NFL intelligently moved this game to Los Angeles. The Chiefs offense looks like a video game and their only blemish was a 43-40 no-shame loss in New England. The Rams have been playing sloppier as of late but look to maintain ground as the New Orleans Saints look like a juggernaut at this point. Both teams have high-powered offenses with shaky defensive play, although the potential of the Rams defense is greater. The Chargers will be hosting the Denver Broncos. If they take care of business as they should and the Rams are able to pull off what is likely to be a thriller, the Chiefs and the Chargers will both be tied in the loss column. The city of Los Angeles has some great responsibility this Week with their football teams who have their own fates at stake.Week 13 presents us with another marquee matchup and potential playoff preview. This game was even flexed to Sunday Night Football on NBC, replacing the Seahawks-49ers game that was originally scheduled. Both these teams are sizzling hot. We know what the Chargers have been doing recently. The Steelers just came off a 52-21 clobbering of the Carolina Panthers. The Steelers star-studded offense with Ben Roethlisberger, James Conner, Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster and others can score at will. It is their defense that strikes fear. Entering Week 11, they have sacked quarterbacks 31 times which is tied for first in the league.They are eighth in total yards allowed per game at just a tick over 336. The Chargers currently have the eighth ranked total offense with with 392.1 yards per game and score 26.7 points per game which is good for tenth. This becomes a must win only if the Chiefs lead the division at this point. If both teams are tied and the Chargers lose Brandon Mebane Color Rush Jersey , they can redeem themselves eleven days following. But they must enter this game playing it as if it were the postseason. This is a team they may very well see just a few weeks later. This game might determine seeding. The Steelers sit at 6-2-1 entering Week 11 and are aiming for their own first-round bye. The Chargers need to play smart, fundamentally sound football. The offensive line has been great all year and must continue to protect Philip Rivers and open up holes for Melvin Gordon because that pass rush in Pittsburgh has been in attack mode all season. On defense, they can not allow the big play. This is a home-run hitting team who will burn opponents over the top if defenders miss even one step. On this same date, the Chiefs will go to Oakland. Must more be said? Any team can win on any given Sunday but a betting man is not putting any money on the Raiders in this one.The revenge game. The game that might decide the entire season for the Chargers. Thursday Night Football at Arrowhead. For fans, it does not get any better than this. The Chargers will need to win this game if they have hopes to win the AFC West. This could be the most impactful game in the entire outlook of the AFC outlook, and it might even swing the MVP race. Will Philip Rivers put himself at the top of the race if he wins this game and puts his team in position for a bye? Will Patrick Mahomes seal the deal? Will he lose the game and give the top spot to Rivers or Drew Brees? There is a lot to be answered with this one. If the Chargers win, how likely is it that New England, Pittsburgh, or Houston can come into their building and win a playoff game? Can Kansas City get their revenge in a potential third matchup of the season? Entering Week 11, The Chiefs offense averages 8.6 more points and 40 yards per game than the Chargers. The Chargers defense allows 20.7 points to the Chiefs’ 24. They allow 356.6 yards per game to the Chiefs’ 410.7. This game has potential to come down to the wire. Both teams will be playing their hearts out, leaving nothing on the field. It will require big throws from Patrick Mahomes and Philip Rivers. Big runs from Melvin Gordon and Kareem Hunt. Big catches from Tyreek Hill and Keenan Allen. Defensive stops from the secondaries. Key sacks or tackles-for-loss. Attention to detail. Whoever wins this game might sit at the number one seed in the AFC. Whoever wins this game will possibly leave the week as favorites to reach the Super Bowl.Led by Philip Rivers and star running-back Melvin Gordon, the sky is the limit for these Chargers.Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty ImagesThese are just the big games. The Chiefs have four other games they need to worry about as well and the Chargers have five. There are no guarantees in football. The Chargers know what it will take on their part to achieve. Everybody knows what has to be done. It will be an exciting stretch.This Chargers team is full of talent. They have some of the best personnel in the entire league. We have seen a Rivers-led team enter the playoffs on a high note, only to fall short of their goals. Something about this team looks and feels different, though. They play with such chemistry and swagger. They are on a roll and are a force to be reckoned with. We will see how it plays out.The Chargers can only focus on the Denver Broncos at the moment, however. Take it week by week.But, teams are starting to make their playoff push. The Chargers must make theirs too.

The only consistent aspect of the Pittsburgh Steelers early in the season were their inconsistencies.After an opening week tie with the Cleveland Browns Ernie Stautner Color Rush Jersey , followed by a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers had shown it all — amazing offense, head-scratching play calling and shoddy defense, among others.Needless to say, the Steelers experienced a precipitous drop in the weekly NFL Power Rankings because of their poor play which resulted in a 0-1-1 record heading into Week 3. However, a 30-27 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football had the Steelers on the rise. Right on cue, the next week they suffered a 26-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football, the Pittsburgh roller coaster was again on the decline.Have no fear Steelers fans, a dominant performance in Week 5 vs. the Atlanta Falcons in followed by a big win over the Cincinnati Bengals had the team continuing on their upward trend. Or as Mike Tomlin would say, “The arrow is pointing up.”Inconsistent was the theme early with this team, but they seemed to have been rectified this after beating the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9 and the Carolina Panthers in Week 10, extending their winning streak to five straight games.In reality, these power rankings mean nothing https://www.steelerssportshop.com/John-Stallworth-Jersey , but they’re great for conversation and debate. This week, the Steelers saw themselves not just in the Top 10, but back in the Top 5.Check out the rankings, and let us know what you think in the comment section below!ESPN1. New Orleans Saints2.

The Steelers have recorded 18 sacks during this five-game winning streak, including six against Atlanta and five against Carolina, both blowouts at home.

I am starting to think this guy is not just the biggest riser, but also the best player in the draft. His hands are the best I have seen since Aaron Donald Louis Lipps Jersey , and he is just so strong. He toys with everyone he faces and goes straight into the backfield with ease. Anything move you think he would want, he has it. He has a swim, rip, cross chop, club and it is all just beautiful. He plays with great pad level, and due to that, his fantastic first step is just so overpowered.His run defense is actually better, as he can just make about as many TFLs as you want to see, or his gap discipline is the best in the country, too. WIlliams is a complete prospect and is can’t miss star.Round Grade: Top 3NFL Comparison: Geno AtkinsTE Irv SmithHere is a guy with an athletic background, and boy does it ever show. Smith can fly for a tight end and makes some incredible catches with his extensive catch radius. He is super smart and can catch any ball in traffic if you want him to. Those hands are strong and he so easily turns catches into huge plays just off of his speed. He is actually an underrated blocker, but just is not strong enough yet to be a great one.His contested catch ability is somewhat lacking, which is concerning given his catch radius Alejandro Villanueva Color Rush Jersey , and with less than ideal route running technique, Smith will need a good deal of time to refine his game. Add on top of that how raw of a blocker he is, and I expect Smith to be a day 2 type of project at TE.Round Grade: Early 3rdNFL Comparison: Chris HerndonILB Mack WilsonThe early ideal draft pick for the Steelers is Mack WIlson. This guy is a dude who can fly from sideline-to-sideline and not lose a step. His ability to work through traffic and evade blocks up front is some of the most impressive of his traits. No one is catching Wilson once he recognizes the play and comes flying downhill, as he is a rather sure-tackler too. His processing has been great, and man is he ever good in coverage. He can keep up with just about anyone on the field and have great coverage.The one knock on him is over-pursuing, which seems to be common for all athletic ILBs for some reason. Wilson needs to keep his angles tight in order to counteract that. Round Grade: Top 5NFL Comparison: Deion JonesBulldog BreakdownEDGE Montez SweatSweat has shown some fantastic improvement this year. His pad level has dramatically improved and his hips have loosened up, and it shows with how much bend he now has. The guy can bend as long as he uses his quick first step and gets those hands going. He likes the cross chop-rip combo, and it has worked well. His counter moves continue to improve as well.His run defense could use work, as he needs to set the edge better and then disengage too. That would be his one clear weakness, as a lot of runs are too his side, and man sometimes they go for a very, very long while, unfortunately. Round Grade: Mid 1stNFL Comparison: Ryan KerriganIOL Elgton JenkinsThis guy is a huge sleeper in terms of offensive linemen. He is way more polished than people realize. His hands are great. The placement is just as good as you could get and he shows out every time he is bull rushed or tested. His hips are so loose and he can get up to the second level easily due to it. His processing of stunts in pass protection are also great.He is not a great athlete https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Heath-Miller-Jersey , or entirely strong, the latter of which can be worked upon, but the biggest concern is a slightly narrow base. That allows the better IDL to beat him inside with rips and catch him off balance. He can still pull well with the lack of athletic traits, but he unfortunately can get evaded easier than one would like to see.Round Grade: Mid 3rdNFL Comparison: John SullivanSleepersUMass WR Andy Isabella #23Isabella is really quick type of guy that has great slot receiver traits. He is the type of receiver to completely dice up a defense based off of that quickness alone. He is precise and smart out of that slot too. His route tree is huge and he is super precise with his breaks and routes. He finds the open spots in the zone rather easily and has strong hands to make catches in traffic. His body control is also great.Of course, he is quick, but not fast and has yet to show he can truly be a great outside guy, which would relegate him to slot only. His contested catch ability is not very good and if he does not get separation there is a big issue. His release needs works and he can get caught up in press too often.Round Grade: Mid 3rdNFL Comparison: Danny AmendolaWyoming EDGE Carl Granderson #91I really like Granderson’s ability to bend around the edge and use his hands to maintain that leverage. His hands are violent and really tough to counter. His cross chop-rip combo is near unstoppable and he even has a spin to win inside. His run defense is spectacular and this year he has started to play lower and implement some bull rushing.He needs a better first step, no doubt, and his speed-to-power conversion needs work for said bull rush to be any of significance. He is not very athletic so that step will never be explosive, but the processing and quickness have to come with it, simply put. He also needs to get stronger to maintain gap discipline inside on the run.Round Grade: Mid 4thNFL Comparison: Nate Orchard...Let us know what games your watching and who you have your eye on this Saturday.

I’m recycling our Monday Night Football open thread tonight for you guys to discuss the riveting Thursday Night Football game between the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners are starting Nick Mullens at QB. I consider myself a pretty big fan of the NFL http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/kyle-fuller-jersey , and I’ve never heard of Nick Mullens.Enjoy the game, or better yet check out WhiskeyRanger’s video options instead. MNF Open ThreadTalk about the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills Monday Night Football battle right here!This is a great chance for Chicago Bears’ fans to do a little advanced scouting before the Bears travel to Buffalo on Sunday to close out the AFC East portion of their schedule. From a purely statistical standpoint, the Bills have the worst offense in the NFL, but their defense is ranked second. Reminder, this is an open thread (WCG-MA) so do it responsibly. Also, try and keep pictures and GIFs out of the thread because it slows down the loading time of the comment section. For live updates on the game you can hit up ESPN right here.Click on our names to follow us on Twitter:WCG Contributors: Jeff Berckes; Patti Curl; Eric Christopher Duerrwaechter; Kev H; Sam Householder; Jacob Infante; Aaron Lemming; Andrew Link; Ken Mitchell; Steven Schweickert; Jack Silverstein; EJ Snyder; Lester Wiltfong, Jr.; Robert Zeglinski; Like us on Facebook. Lost in the postgame criticism of the offense (which is justified) was the fact that the Bears did something they hadn’t done in nearly three seasons.In overcoming a 14 point deficit, they successfully won after trailing by two touchdowns for the first time since Week 5 of the 2015 season against the Chiefs Womens Eric Kush Jersey , when they trailed 17-3.In overcoming a 14-0 first quarter deficit, they did something they hadn’t done since Week 6 of the 2006 season, yes, also against Arizona. That was of course, the famous Brian Urlacher ‘Miracle in the Desert’ game. Last season, a 14-0 deficit would have been a for sure game over scenario. Now though, with this defense, the Bears feel like they are never quite fully out of a game http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/danny-trevathan-jersey , which is nice, since the offense needs all the help it can get.There were some bright spots in Sunday’s game, even if it wasn’t the offensive performance we’ve all been waiting for and wanting.Stock upSherrick McManis, DB - McManis, who is the last holdover from the Lovie Smith era and the longest-tenured Bear, has started just five games for Chicago. He is generally regarded as a Josh Bellamy type; a guy who is a good (although in McManis’s case I’d say great) special teamer, but a guy that the team’s better off not having to rely on too much to play on a starting unit.But Sunday was a big game for the career special teamer: He had a great special teams tackle in the open field and then, when pressed into the line up http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/nick-kwiatkoski-jersey , had an athletic, diving interception, a pass defensed, a tackle for loss, a sack and a QB hit. His INT and sack came late in the game when the Bears needed a big play to close it out. Hats off to him, it was his first interception since his rookie season in 2010.Kyle Long, G - Long has bounced back after a couple of injury-plagued seasons and two offseason surgeries to beginning to look like his old self. On Sunday he was getting downfield, pulling and overall just wrecking dudes. If only practicing once or twice a week means we get Pro Bowl or All-Pro level Long on Sundays Womens Allen Robinson Jersey , then I am all for it.Trey Burton, TE - Burton had four catches for the second straight week and it seems like maybe, finally he’s getting the production that was expected after a preseason of hearing his name daily in training camp reports. He finished Sunday with a season high 55 yards. As Trubisky hopefully gets up to speed, we’ll see more of Burton, like we did on his 25-yard catch along the sideline Sunday.Stock downEric Kush, G - Kush had a rough game with two penalties and getting pushed around with some regularity. The Cardinals have some good defensive players, but issues like this is only going to make the calls for rookie James Daniels to see the field grow louder.Mitch Trubisky, QB - This isn’t to say there weren’t some positives http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/akiem-hicks-jersey , but every week that the offense struggles to muster up just one or two touchdowns, the questions and complaints will only grow louder. Patience should still be heeded but Bears fans are an impatient bunch, especially with a defense that looks like this one.Kevin Tolliver, CB - Tolliver showed his rookie stripes Sunday. He was targeted and burned a couple times, notably by rookie speedster Christian Kirk. Tolliver may have an increased workload if Prince Amukamara misses a lot of time with his hamstring injury.Who stood out, good and bad, to you?

Then the All-Pro wide receiver stepped in front of his stall and turned to face the cameras. The music stopped. The smile faded. In its place? A mix of frustration, defiance and — he insists — remorse.Yes, he's upset the Steelers are winless through two games. Yes, he probably shouldn't have responded to criticism on social media from a former team employee by suggesting the team trade him if it wants to find out how productive he can be without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.No, he doesn't actually want to get out of Pittsburgh. No Kansas City Chiefs Hoodie , he doesn't have an issue with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner. And as for his demeanor during a 42-37 loss to Kansas City last Sunday? Sorry, but he's never going to apologize for letting his emotions bubble over when things aren't going well."We haven't won a game yet," Brown said. "For me, as a Steeler, that's unacceptable. I'm not on the sideline begging for the ball, or making statements like you guys make. I'm pissed off. We're losing. We suck."Pittsburgh (0-1-1) is off to its worst start in five years heading into Monday night's visit to Tampa Bay. That's the problem, Brown insisted. His visible anger — he was caught slouching off the field following a late touchdown drive by Roethlisberger against the Chiefs and shouting at Fichtner on the sideline — is a direct result of the team's record. And that's all."Our business is winning Customized Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys ," Brown said. "We're not winning. And when we don't win, I'm pissed off because I take it serious. A lot of time goes into this. A lot of hard work and effort."Brown finished with nine receptions for 67 yards and is tied for the team lead with 18 catches through two games. He's on pace for another statistically remarkable season. Yet the six-time Pro Bowler stressed he is far less concerned about his numbers than helping the Steelers get it together."I'm in the spotlight so you guys going to always put me under the microscope, but I'm a (passionate) individual," Brown said. "I can't fake the way I feel. I can't hide the way I feel. If it wasn't important to me, I'd just say it don't matter. But I'm not that type of guy who's just around here cashing checks and don't care. This means something to me."An approach his teammates and coaches understand, which is why Fichtner wasn't bothered when cameras caught Brown shouting in Fichtner's direction on the sideline late in the fourth quarter against the Chiefs."I've known AB a long time and to be honest, I didn't think about it like (people would think we were arguing) until later www.authenticskansascitychiefs.com ," Fichtner said. "But I want him to be passionate and I want his communication."Brown, however, isn't always in the mood to share his thoughts. When Pittsburgh's late rally fell short, Brown skipped out of the postgame locker room before the media entered. He then missed mandatory meetings on Monday for what he described as personal reasons. He said he informed coach Mike Tomlin that he wouldn't be into work, and the two had what Tomlin called a lengthy meeting on Tuesday to discuss the matter.While Brown didn't make it to the team facility on Monday, he did find time to tweet "trade me lets find out" after a former Steelers employee suggested Brown should be thankful he has the chance to play with Roethlisberger. No one took Brown's post seriously, particularly not Brown.Still Kansas City Chiefs T-Shirt , he understands taking to social media to vent might not be the best course of action going forward."Obviously it was a stupid remark online (by me)," Brown said. "I've just got to stay away from online with the distractions and letting people getting me out of my character."The Steelers disciplined Brown for undisclosed reasons, but Brown indicated he will jog onto the field with the rest of the starters in Tampa Bay. He'll also try to stop adding to a steady stream of off-the-field issues that have consistently popped up for the two-time defending AFC North champions."I can't respond to people that's saying crazy stuff," Brown said. "I've got to do a more important job, to be focused on what's important and what's important now is for us to win."

Fantasy tip: With receiving corps depleted, Luck has been finding tight ends more often. That makes Ebron wise pick this week 鈥?if he stays healthy. The defending Super Bowl champions look mediocre.At the quarter point of the season, the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) have an inconsistent offense and a defense that can't stop anyone on the road.But coach Doug Pederson isn't ready to make major changes following a 26-23 overtime loss at Tennessee."We have to be more efficient in all three areas, obviously, offense and defense," Pederson said Monday. "But our efficiency as we look at it as a staff and as coaches, we have to be careful that we are not just on a whim swapping people out. If you start doing that, it starts moving other people around as well."We're going to take these next couple of days and really evaluate everybody, evaluate us as coaches, too, and see if there's a change to be made Womens Nate Hairston Jersey , we'll make it. If not, then we'll leave it alone. At the same time, we can also coach a little bit better and get our guys prepared in a situation to play."Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz watched his unit waste a 17-3 lead midway through the third quarter by allowing a touchdown, field goal and touchdown on the next three possessions. After the Eagles took a lead in overtime, the Titans converted on fourth-and-15, fourth-and-4 and fourth-and-2 on the winning drive.The secondary was torched by Marcus Mariota, who was 30 of 43 for 344 yards and two touchdowns. Ryan Fitzpatrick had 402 yards passing and four TDs against the Eagles in Tampa's 27-21 victory in Week 2.Cornerbacks Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby are having trouble in one-on-one coverage, but lack of pressure by the defensive linemen isn't helping the coverage guys. Mills gave up several big plays, but it doesn't appear the team is ready to demote the third-year pro."It's tough. These corners are on islands a lot," Pederson said. "I think I look at it from an offensive perspective. When you see a guy that maybe you can attack, you try to attack and that is what offenses are doing right now. And he's a good player, we have a lot of confidence in him, he has a lot of confidence in himself, and a lot of it just comes down to just detail the work and understand the situation. He is working through it, he'll get better and we'll get better as a team."The defense was missing safety Rodney McLeod, who had knee surgery last week. Corey Graham replaced him and made a glaring mistake allowing the conversion on fourth-and-15.At home, the defense has been dominant against Matt Ryan and the Falcons and Andrew Luck and the Colts. On the road http://www.thecoltsfootballauthentic.com/quincy-wilson-jersey-authentic , it's been a struggle."We play at home, we're in front of our crowd, it's loud, our defense feeds off of that," Pederson said. "You go on the road, you're playing in their home stadium, it's loud. It's a strange dynamic. It's hard to really put a finger on it, quite honestly, because it's the same players, it's the same scheme, same team, and we should end up almost feeding off the environment and all of that. But it's something that we can learn from, we will learn from, and we've got to fix it quick."The Eagles host the Minnesota Vikings (1-2-1) in an NFC championship game rematch on Sunday. The stakes are lower but both teams are desperate for wins.

The signs all week pointed to wide receiver Randall Cobb making his return to the Packers lineup in Los Angeles on Sunday and those signs were correct.Cobb is active for the first time since Week Three as the Packers try to hand the Rams their first loss of the season. Cobb has been sidelined by a hamstring injury and was listed as questionable on Friday.Wide receiver Geronimo Allison is also back in the lineup after missing the last two games. Allison’s status was not in doubt after he failed to receive a designation on the final injury report of the week.Tackle Jason Spriggs and wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown were also listed as questionable Color Rush Lane Taylor Jersey , but both of them are in the lineup. Quarterback Tim Boyle, cornerback Bashaud Breeland, cornerback Tony Brown, linebacker Korey Toomer Jaire Alexander Jersey , offensive lineman Justin McCray, offensive lineman Alex Light and wide receiver J'Mon Moore are inactive.The Rams listed wide receiver Cooper Kupp as doubtful due to a knee injury and he’s out for the second week in a row. Linebacker Trevon Young was also listed as doubtful and joins defensive back Darious Williams, running back Justin Davis, running back John Kelly Authentic Josh Jackson Jersey , defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day and tight end Johnny Mundt on the inactive list. That sound you may have heard at the conclusion of the Green Bay Packers’ loss last night?It was the sound of a book closing. The book on the Mike McCarthy era in Green Bay is finished and is ready to be put on the shelf.At 4-5-1, the Packers are going to need a miracle to make the playoffs given their performance. Even then, it might not be enough to save McCarthy’s job. An era is coming to an end and while Packers fans may be relieved to see it end, it’s still sad that it has come to this. The head coach repeatedly making the same mistakes and his quarterback Youth Jamaal Williams Jersey , one he helped develop into a football good, continues to perform as simply a mere mortal.When it comes down to choosing an all world quarterback or a coach to get rid of, you always choose the coach especially when the quarterback just signed a record contract mere months ago.It stinks that this is yet another lost season in the career of Aaron Rodgers but perhaps the team can correct it by getting a coach who can get the team back into title contention. They still have Rodgers and they have a bright young general manager in Brian Gutekunst who by all accounts built the team the right way. It’s now just their head coach who is an anchor and it’s time to cut that anchor loose so the ship can continue sailing and not sinking.There’s more on the likely end of the McCarthy era plus how Rodgers isn’t absolved from blame either in today’s cheese curds.Packers’ latest loss to Seahawks might usher in end of an era--NFL.comWith the way the game started it looked like this may have been Green Bay’s night to exercise their Seattle demons. Then the actual version of the 2018 team showed up and everything fell apart. Perhaps Tramon Williams’s quotes about the questionable late punt tell it all.Packers on brink after another loss in Seattle--ESPNA sequel to “Run the Table” would be remarkable but will it happen? Probably not but stranger things have happened. Rodgers, McCarthy can’t seem to fix whatever is broken with Packers’ offense--PackersNews.comIf the coach and quarterback are not on the same page http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-aaron-rodgers-jersey , the defense will have to generational in performance to keep the team afloat in today’s game. Hence why the Packers are where they are.Kyler Fackrell’s career day ends in ‘bittersweet’ fashion--Packers.comA win would have made this the “Kyler Fackrell game” but it’s time to recognize that Fackrell has become the most consistent edge rusher on the team even more than his higher paid counterparts.What’s wrong with Aaron Rodgers?--Bleacher ReportThe knee injury should be affecting Rodgers’ head. He is missing open receivers and has lost some of his accuracy. What’s wrong with the quarterback and can he be fixed?

Von Miller seems to think the Broncos’ 23-20 loss yesterday was his fault.“I just can’t get it done. I need to watch the film and figure it out — what I can do to make things happen https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Justin-Simmons-Jersey ,” said the linebacker who accounted for 1.5 of the Broncos’ five sacks yesterday but was also part of the unit that allowed Todd Gurley to rush for a career-high 208 yards.“We knew we’d be leaking the run today because the pass was our focus, but 272 yards is just ridiculous. I’ve got to do better,” Miller added. “I was able to get some sacks today, but the game-changing plays, I just still didn’t make them.”Nevermind the taunting from Emmanuel Sanders that possibly prevented a touchdown. Or holding penalties that pushed an already ineffective Case Keenum back to 3rd-and-30. Or an absent running game (17 out of 58 plays) or multiple missed opportunities on third and short.As far as No. 58 is concerned, he alone has to be amazing for this team to win.And sadly, he’s probably not wrong - at least the part about being amazing. Doing it alone, though, is not going to be enough.“We start fast and we’ve just got to be consistent. I’ve got to be consistent. I’ve got to do better and get sacks and forced fumbles and pick it up and score,” Miller said. “Those are the type of plays that I dream about every day, and I’ve got to start making those for us to start winning.”There is definitely reason to think the offense cannot get it done and plenty of blame for falling short the fourth week in a row - ineptitude in the red zone, penalties, play calling - but Miller still sees the loss as something he can - and should - fix in spite of the offense.“I’ve got to get better. I’ve got to get there. I’ve got to make the big plays. Sacks, forced fumbles, the plays that I’m known for. I’m just not making them,” the frustrated veteran said. “I’m falling into sacks like the other guys in the league and that’s just not me. I’ve got to do better and I’ve started. I will do better.”After starting the season with three sacks on the elusive Russell Wilson in Week 1, Miller has only 5.5 through six games.In “Miller’s world,” as he says,that’s not even close to good enough.“Von’s play hasn’t been what it’s supposed to be for my teammates to be successful,” Miller added. “I’ve been saying it for two weeks. I will definitely get it done. I’ve never gotten up here and lied to you guys, not one time, and that’s definitely No. 1 on my list. I will get that finished.”A bright spot in his quest will be his rookie sidekick, Bradley Chubb. The first-round pick had three sacks in yesterday’s game against the NFL’s best offensive line. More of that and Miller will be his sidekick - as Miller seems to understand.“It’s me. Chubb had a great day today,” he said. “I was close on one, but close don’t really do it for you in the National Football League.”Nope. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t good things to build upon from the loss. The defense held the Rams to just 23 points - their lowest score this season - and Chubb’s three-sack bonanza was done within his first six games as an NFL player. It took Miller 23 games for that kind of production. But the rookie isn’t as happy as he might be with that performance since it didn’t end with a W.“It’s good and all that to get to the quarterback three times Domata Peko Color Rush Jersey , but it’s not good enough, you know what I’m saying?” Chubb said. “ We feel like in the Outside Linebackers Room, we put all the pressure on us. If we want to win, we’ve got to make plays. Sometimes we did make those plays, but we’ve just got to do more.”Miller and his teammates insist the issue is not play calling. He “100 percent” believes in the defensive scheme and says the players need to either make it happen or change the play.“We lost, and it’s on us. The coaches called the plays. If we don’t like the plays, change the play,” he said. One thing Miller knows for sure is that the loss hurts - and that’s how it should be.“You’ve got to be hurt after losses like this. It’s just not something that you can rub off and say, ‘We’ll be better after this.’ It doesn’t work like that. You’ve got to be hurt when you lose,” he said. “You shouldn’t be laughing. It should wear on you. It should really bother you to lose on this level. Everyone is getting paid, everyone has responsibilities on this team and the No. 1 responsibility for all of us is to win, and we are not doing that. I’m not doing that. It should hurt. It should feel bad, and if we all feel the same way that I’m feeling, we’ll be great.”Miller didn’t take the bait when asked about fans booing and being upset too. But he definitely put out a subtle call to fans to keep the faith - because he’s going to do better.“I’ve never attacked the Denver Bronco fan base. They’ve been through thick and thin with me. Loyal as heck,” he said. “We’ve got real fans here. If fans are losing hope, I just can’t believe that. We’ve still got a long season ahead of us, and Broncos Country has been great for us. We still need them to do the same thing for us to get this turned around.”And what makes that possibly believable?Because Miller hates where the team is right now.“I hate losing more than I love winning, so in the spot where we are at right now, I can’t even put it into words,” he said. “It’s our message to the guys, just keep playing. It’s a championship fight. You lose a couple rounds at the beginning. Just keep playing and find out where we end up.” The Denver Broncos are looking at “some 3-5 bullsh*t” right now and nobody likes the idea of another loss before the Bye Week - especially this week’s Ultimate Fan. But it’s getting harder to be optimistic about the team’s chances at salvaging the season when it keeps making costly mistakes at very inopportune times.KilledByAnAngel becomes the first Ultimate Fan this season to predict a loss, but don’t be too hard on him - the last time a fan did that, the Broncos responded with a win just to show us...and we’ll take that all day long - won’t we, KilledByAnAngel?Of course we will. : ) Week 9: Texans at BroncosMHR - Broncos hung tough with Kansas City for part of the game but couldn’t keep it together long enough - whether it was penalties or other mistakes - to really make a run for a win. Is that what this 2018 team is - “just not quite good enough”?KilledByAnAngel: Unfortunately, I think so.As much as I want to keep chugging the orange kool-aid Demarcus Walker Jersey , I’ve lost hope that this team can get over the hump of mediocrity.I’m not sure exactly what the necessary change is to be “good enough,” but my gut tells me that it’s a coaching change.We have a tremendous amount of talent on our team but it’s not coming together under this staff.The fact that we have hung in there against some of the best teams in the league tells me that we’re not lacking for heart.MHR - Demaryius Thomas is now a Texan. Do you like this move? How do you think Courtland Sutton will do in a No. 1 WR role?KilledByAnAngel: I was actually shocked by the uproar that this move created in Broncos Country.It felt like just the other day that everybody was adamant that we trade DT.Ultimately, I do like the move.DT has been one of my favorites for a long time - his is one of the few jerseys I own.But there’s no denying that he has lost a step and is no longer the No. 1 receiver on our team.Between the salary and lack of production, it was time to move on.This is one of those circumstances where the move was best for both parties involved.It allows DT to go play with an actual quarterback and have a shot at the post-season, and it frees up cap space for us while giving Sutton a chance to grow.Sutton is still rough around the edges, as you would expect from a rookie, but his physical ability has already flashed dramatically.He’s got great body control and the ability to make contested catches look easy.I agree with what Elway said - moving Sutton into a more starring role is only going to aid in his development, and I expect great things from him from here on out.MHR - Bill Musgrave called more running plays against KC and it paid off. Yesterday he said “I second the f****** motion” when reminded Broncos lead the league in yards per carry. Do you believe Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker can have the same success against the Texans run defense, which has gotten much better the past five games?KilledByAnAngel: This is going to be the stiffest run defense we have faced, so I’m not as confident our tandem will find quite as much success.I would have more confidence in our run game if our passing game was a viable threat, but that’s not where we’re at right now.I do have faith that Lindsay and Booker will be able to gain yardage, especially if Musgrave commits to the ground game.But the moment that we fall behind or the Texans stack the box, that’s all she wrote.MHR - The Texans’ front 7 - led by JJ Watt - can totally wreck an offense. How do you think Case Keenum and the Broncos’ O-line will do against this group? What kind of play calls for Keenum would you put in the game plan this week?KilledByAnAngel: Between Bolles’ propensity for penalties (which has not improved this season) and the injuries that have fallen upon our O-line, I’m worried about it. Keenum is holding on to the ball too long, which is a deadly combination with our poor pass protection.We need the same kind of play calls for Keenum that we need every week - we need to get him outside of the pocket.He thrived on play action and roll outs with the Vikings.Musgrave should call plays that don’t require Keenum to be a pure pocket passer.MHR - Two weeks ago Colby Wadman had a 50-yard punt. Last week, a 12-yarder. Are you concerned about our punting situation, especially when it needs to happen so often in our games?KilledByAnAngel: Of all of the things I’m concerned about, punting is not high on the list right now.Wadman seems to be having the struggles of getting used to playing professionally, but I think he’ll improve with more experience. Sadly, with as much as we’ll need to punt, an ugly shank or two is to be expected.MHR - Bradley Chubb was just named Defensive Rookie of the Month. What kind of impact do you expect him to keep having this season and down the road? Do you believe choosing Chubb over a QB was still the right move in the draft by Elway?KilledByAnAngel: Chubb’s progression has been awesome to see!I expect him to continue to improve as the season wears on.Despite a slow start, we’re starting to see the powerful combination of Von Miller and Chubb that we all expected when he was drafted.He’s going to acquire more and more skills, his instincts will become more refined, and we already know he has the motor to power it all.Choosing Chubb was absolutely the best move in the draft.Although we are in DESPERATE need of a proper QB, there was not going to be one available where we were picking https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Chris-Harris-Jr-Jersey , especially with the QB-needy teams ahead of us.Despite the fact that we already had Von, we went with the BPA and you can truly never have enough edge rushers in this league.This tag team is going to pay dividends for us for many seasons to come.MHR - Deshaun Watson is a talented QB who has become more and more comfortable each game after having a season-ending injury last year. How should the Broncos attempt to contain him?KilledByAnAngel: We’ll have to use a game plan that is similar to how we kept Russell Wilson in the pocket.Our edge rushers can’t lose contain on the outside. With that said, Watson can still damage you from inside the pocket, so we’ll need our DBs to hold up on the back end.That’s easier said than done with Hopkins and now DT, but if we get those two aspects of our D mostly working, we’ll be able to get some push up the middle of our defensive line and limit Watson’s playmaking ability.MHR - Su’a Cravens is back on the field this week. What kind of improvement can he bring to the secondary to help against DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas?KilledByAnAngel: To me, Cravens’ impact is all potential right now.We’ve talked about him as a savior since the moment we acquired him, but until I actually see him on the field performing at a high level, I have a hard time fathoming any improvement from his contributions. I love that he came out and said, “I’m going to try to blast somebody” because I’m eager to see that kind of tenacity.I don’t see him contributing much against Hopkins and DT but I look forward to him covering the tight end, playing hard nosed against the run, and blitzing.MHR - The run defense has been gashed in several games, a few times by mediocre running backs. Lamar Miller has been great the past two games but hasn’t faced the toughest of defenses. Who has the better day on Sunday - Lamar Miller or the Broncos’ defense?KilledByAnAngel: Broncos’ defense for sure.Miller isn’t going to make it to three straight 100-yard games.He’ll find a bit of success, but I think our D is going to clamp down on the Texans’ run game and force them to beat us in other ways.MHR - What are your thoughts on the season - do the Broncos have any chance at all for a Wild Card spot, are they going to end up with “some 7-9 bullsh*t” or should they tank to go for a better draft pick?KilledByAnAngel:I really, REALLY want to say that they have a chance at a Wild Card spot, but I can’t see it happening.Not with our coaching staff and not with Keenum’s unsteady play.Our defense has the potential to be world-beaters but also ends up giving up massive games due to ineffective play calling.The Broncos will never tank - there’s just too much damn heart on the team.But I do see us in the Jeff Fisher range of 7-9.Just good enough to not get a blue chip draft pick but bad enough to give us our first back-to-back losing seasons in decades.MHR - Finally, Chris Harris joked (but not really) that he would win the one-on-one with DT if matched up in Sunday’s game because he “was just that good.” On the day Broncos honor DT, who gets the best of the matchup?KilledByAnAngel: I have to agree with Harris on this one.In watching DT week to week, my highly developed sense of being a couch coach tells me that he has slowed down.His route running is still great, but he doesn’t seem to fight for balls and certainly doesn’t have the speed he used to. I’m sure Harris has slowed down as well, but you wouldn’t know it from his prowess in the secondary. But I see DT getting around 70 yards and a score if another corner is covering him.PredictionsThe FavoritesHow did you become a Broncos fan?Birthright!I was born in Colorado, and the family has always been Broncos fans.

ENGLEWOOD https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Garett-Bolles-Jersey , Colo. (AP) — If anything happens to Case Keenum, the Denver Broncos‘ offense would be in the hands of Kevin Hogan, who rose up the depth chart when Chad Kelly slipped up.A third-year pro, Hogan has one NFL start on a resume that includes more wins (36) and total yardage (10,634) in college than any of the all-time great quarterbacks who played for Stanford, including his boss, John Elway.“Kevin has played in games. He’s a smart guy,” coach Vance Joseph said. “He’s picked it up quick and we have full confidence in Kevin.”The Broncos were awarded Hogan off waivers from Washington last month after Kelly beat out first-round pick Paxton Lynch for the No. 2 job in Denver. Kelly was dismissed from the team Wednesday , a day after his arrest on suspicion on criminal trespass in the hours after a team-building Halloween party in suburban Englewood.In Hogan, Keenum sees much of himself.“I have a lot of trust in Kevin. I think, similar paths. Been on a few teams and he’s done a great job stepping in and getting a lot of mental reps every day,” Keenum said. “Getting better every day. He’s done a great job, great team guy, great locker room guy to be around. I have complete trust in him if he needs to step in.”On Thursday, the Broncos added former Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson to their practice squad after promoting receiver/returner Isaiah McKenzie to their active roster. Grayson is a third-year pro who spent two seasons on the Saints’ active roster and practice squad (2015-16) and last year on the Falcons’ practice squad.“Isaiah’s been working very hard. He’s got a skillset that you can’t teach and that’s speed,” Joseph said Thursday. “So, when you can add a guy with that kind of speed, it’s always a good thing.”Joseph said Grayson was “a guy that we’ve been tracking here for a couple of years. He fits the skillset that our quarterbacks have. He can move Jake Butt Color Rush Jersey , he’s got a very good arm, he’s a smart guy. He’s been on an active roster in New Orleans for two years, so he’s got some experience.“So, having that spot available, pushing Isaiah up to the roster and bringing up a guy of that caliber, that will help us in the future.”The Broncos (3-4) travel to Kansas City (6-1) this weekend to face the team that drafted Hogan in the fifth round in 2016.“These things have a funny way of coming full-circle,” said Hogan, who will be active Sunday for the first time with the Broncos. “It’s going to be fun to go out there and suit up. I’m not worried about that right now. My job is to get myself prepared, but also to get Case as prepared as possible.”Hogan still has a big fan in Chiefs coach Andy Reid.“I love him,” Reid said. “He’s got sniper vision. He’s got great eyes and he sees everything. I’m pulling for him. I’m one of his fans. I like the way he goes about his business. He’s a brilliant kid.”Elway’s record on QB acquisitions is spotty aside from luring Peyton Manning to Denver for the second chapter of his brilliant career.Ever since Manning’s retirement in 2016, the Broncos have had their troubles at quarterback, whether with free agent Mark Sanchez or draft picks Brock Osweiler, Trevor Siemian, Lynch or Kelly.Even Keenum’s acquisition is looking more like a short-term situation.He signed a two-year, $36 million deal in March after leading the Vikings to the NFC championship game, but he’s off to a middling start in Denver with eight TDs and nine interceptions and is the only quarterback in the league with interceptions in all seven of his team’s games.He missed a wide-open Demaryius Thomas for the go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of Denver’s 27-23 loss at home to the Chiefs on Oct. 1, and was booed in a 23-20 loss to the Rams in Denver two weeks later.Hogan has been a game-day inactive all season but now will be one snap away from playing.“I feel very prepared. This is going on Week 7 or 8 in the system and I spend a lot of time working and studying,” Hogan said. “I always took the game plan seriously and prepared as if I was playing. I’m not going to treat it any differently Billy Turner Jersey , just going to put the uniform on.” ESPN is going with a fresh approach for its first 2018 regular-season broadcast of ”Monday Night Football.”Two announcers with plenty of NFL credentials but far more entrenched in the college game these days will be handling the Jets-Lions game from Detroit: Beth Mowins and Brian Griese.”We are pretty excited to bring the franchise on the air, and hoping some pretty good story lines will play out,” says Mowins, who did last year’s second half of the opening doubleheader with analyst Rex Ryan. Mowins also does a few CBS telecasts of NFL games during the season, as well as Oakland Raiders preseason contests, but her main gig is college sports.Griese is one of the top analysts of the college game, an insightful and often critical but fair voice.”Guys who can shoot from the hip are always fun to work with,” Mowins says.Of course, he also played 11 pro seasons, starting 83 games. So his knowledge of both levels of football is expansive.”I think the pro game in a lot of ways is more familiar to me than the college game,” Griese notes. ”I have had to learn the college game as it has grown. I spent 11 years in the NFL playing quarterback and it’s more similar to what I know.”What both Mowins and Griese know is that the fan bases of both teams will be stoked for the game, even though Jets-Lions isn’t quite the marquee matchup. Indeed, the NFL gave ESPN what appears to be a better game in the nightcap, Jon Gruden’s return as the Raiders host the Rams. The regular and new Monday night crew of Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten will be in the booth, Booger McFarland at field level for that one.”No question both these teams have reasons for optimism, for different reasons,” Griese says. ”Jets fans should be excited about Sam Darnold, who can be a game changer and a franchise quarterback in the making. For Detroit https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Tramaine-Brock-Jersey , it’s a whole new ballgame for the fans with Matt Patricia hired as coach, a new way of doing things. I’m eager to see how he will impact the franchise. And they have their bellwether in Matthew Stafford at quarterback.”Adds Mowins: ”You tell the truth with a heavier emphasis on the hope, and that is what all of these fan bases are having. The history is part of the story heading into the season and something we absolutely talk about graphically. The nice thing about the opener is everyone has hope again, and we can also focus on the changes these teams have made to improve.”To its credit, ESPN is willing to make changes or go outside the box for its Monday night showcase. One area of expertise that Mowins and Griese – and sideline reporter Laura Rutledge – bring to the telecast is an advanced awareness of NFL newcomers.That could be particularly enlightening for Jets-Lions with the likes of Darnold – even if he doesn’t play and Josh McCown starts – and Lions rookie running back Kerryon Johnson on hand.”One of the things I have noticed over the last several years and doing the Raiders games in preseason, you have a head start on rookies coming into the league,” Mowins says. ”I sort of have that background of who they were and relationships they might have with other players and coaches. That provides a nice jumping-off point, especially early in the season. Some of the rookies the NFL fans may not have seen in college, but I have had a chance to call their games in college, and so has Brian.”Mowins and Griese have not done game broadcasts together, but have had many conversations and learning sessions. Last year, when the Broncos played in the opener Mowins and Ryan announced, she reached out to Griese, who does Denver’s preseason games.”I’ve talked with Beth quite a bit through the years, we are in the same college football realm, so we see quite a bit of each other’s work,” Griese says. ”I’m very familiar with her work in college football.”The approach for me will be a little bit different because I will probably go to both teams’ training camps to familiarize myself with the teams. I don’t ever do a game where I have not seen a team live or in person (at practice or in a game). That will be the only difference for you in preparation.”—

Here comes Who Dey vs. Who Dat.Say what?The Who Dat folks from New Orleans go head-on with the Who Dey fans in Cincinnati on Sunday. And don’t ask which group first came up with its catchy phrase and odd rendering of the English language.“Who Dey? I don’t understand. I’m baffled Adrian Phillips Color Rush Jersey ,” says Saints running back Mark Ingram. “It’s like, did they copy us? Or not? I don’t know. Who Dat! Who Dat! Who Dat! …”What anyone might ask is whether the Saints (7-1), coming off three huge victories, including handing the Rams their first loss, are ripe for a letdown. Drew Brees and company face Philadelphia next week.“They’re going to be hungry coming off the bye week,” Ingram says of the Bengals. “They have playoff aspirations. They have aspirations of winning their division. So every game is important to them just like it is to us. So we’re going up there in foreign territory, hostile territory, and we’ve got to go make it happen. We’re a good team. We respect them but we’re always worried about this building, this team, what we need to do to put ourselves in position to have success.”It might be difficult for New Orleans to find a way to lose this one, though. In the past three games, the Bengals (5-3) have given up 481 yards to Pittsburgh, then 551 to Kansas City and 576 to Tampa Bay.Granted, those are three of the NFL’s top attacks. The Saints are up there, too, so if Cincinnati gives up 500 yards Sunday, it will become the first team to allow 500 in three consecutive games.“We’re underachieving right now,” defensive end Carlos Dunlap admits. “We’re playing well enough to win some games, which is why we’re 5-3. If we work on the negatives, we can be that elite defense and that elite team.”Right now, the eliteness is in the Big Easy“They go as Brees goes,” Dunlap adds. “We’ve got to find a way to slow down that future Hall of Famer.”The weekend began Thursday night with Pittsburgh’s 52-21 home victory over Carolina. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 328 yards and five touchdowns to help the Steelers (6-2-1) win their fifth straight. The Panthers (6-3) had won three in a row.Off this week are Minnesota (5-3-1), Denver (3-6), Baltimore (4-5) and Houston (6-3).Dallas (3-5) at Philadelphia (4-4)For the Cowboys to stay real in the NFC East, they need a quick reversal of fortune. With four of those five losses coming on the road, a visit to the Linc isn’t all that enticing.These teams meet on “Sunday Night Football” for the 10th consecutive season and 12th time overall. Dallas must find a passing game somewhere, and spring Ezekiel Elliott for some big plays, but the blocking unit has declined significantly.The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles are 17-5 at home under coach Doug Pederson. Carson Wentz has thrown at least one TD with no more than one interception in 21 straight games Drew Kaser Color Rush Jersey , tied with Matt Ryan for the longest streak in NFL history. He has a new target in Golden Tate. The wideout was obtained from Detroit, for which he had eight catches for 132 yards and two TDs vs. the Cowboys on Sept. 30.Seattle (4-4) at Los Angeles Rams (8-1)Coming off their first defeat, the Rams will remember they struggled to win 33-31 at Seattle last month. A victory would give LA a 4½-game edge in the NFC West and pretty much shut it down.Both teams boast potent ground games, with the big star being LA’s Todd Gurley. The Rams are No. 1 in the NFL with Gurley at 868 yards rushing; he also has 12 TD runs; he has scored in 12 consecutive games, the longest regular-season streak in team history.The Seahawks are tops in rushing since Week 3 with 159.8 yards per game after concentrating more on the ground game following an 0-2 start.Arizona (2-6) at Kansas City (8-1)The Cardinals are 0-4-1 at Kansas City, and this isn’t exactly the best time to be visiting. Arizona has the NFL’s worst offense and ranks 31st in pass defense. All the Chiefs do, with Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, is score, score and score some more.But Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald could make some history. Fitzgerald needs 33 yards receiving to pass Terrell Owens (15,934) for second in NFL history. Fitz needs 14 receptions to pass Jerry Rice (San Francisco, 1,281) for the NFL record for receptions with one team.Detroit (3-5) at Chicago (5-3)A very lopsided series recently in favor of Detroit, which has won nine of 10. Indeed, Chicago hasn’t won an NFC North game in its past 10 attempts.But the Lions allowed 10 sacks — yes, 10 — to Minnesota last week, and Chicago has an even better defense than the Vikings.The Bears also are decently balanced and rank fifth in scoring. Still, their calling card is on D, and they scored twice that way against Buffalo: Eddie Jackson’s 65-yard fumble recovery and Leonard Floyd’s 19-yard interception return.Washington (5-3) at Tampa Bay (3-5)The Redskins were routed at home by Atlanta last weekend and lost three key players, including both starting guards. Adrian Peterson has three consecutive 100-yard rushing games against Tampa Bay, including last year with the Cardinals. Can he find room to roam behind a makeshift offensive line?Tampa sure can pass and sure can score, but it often falls so far behind that it can’t catch up. The Bucs have been outscored 103-27 in the first half of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s past three starts, all losses.Still, Fitzpatrick has three games with four or more TD passes, the most in the NFC this season, and has been much better than erstwhile starter Jameis Winston.New England (7-2) at Tennessee (4-4)Here we go again: New England is on a roll as Tom Brady makes everyone around him better.The Patriots have won six straight (seven in a row overall against Tennessee). Brady will play in his 300th game, including postseason Hunter Henry Color Rush Jersey , and will join Brett Favre (326) as the only NFL quarterbacks to appear in 300 games. Brady needs three TD passes to tie Peyton Manning (579) for the most in NFL history, also including playoffs.Tennessee comes off a solid victory at Dallas and coach Mike Vrabel had his biggest playing days in New England, where he won three titles.“We’ve just gotten ourselves to the surface where there’s a little bit of air, a little bit of water,” Vrabel says. “You’re kind of taking a little bit of both in and you can’t survive there for long. But you can survive there for a few minutes. And so we got to make the next decision to see if we can get our heads completely above water.”Atlanta (4-4) at Cleveland (2-6-1)Injuries seemed to ruin the Falcons‘ season, yet here they are at .500 and with six games upcoming against teams currently owning losing records. Matt Ryan is having an outstanding year, even while overshadowed in the NFC South by Brees and Cam Newton.With 13 yards receiving Sunday, Julio Jones will reach 10,000 in his career and become the fastest player to reach that milestone (104 games).The Browns have dropped four straight, and are 0-1 under interim coach Gregg Williams. But their .786 winning percentage (11-3) against the Falcons is the team’s highest against any opponent.Los Angeles Chargers (6-2) at Oakland (1-7)Another guy not getting enough recognition for a superb passing season is Philip Rivers while Patrick Mahomes grabs the AFC West headlines. Playing the woeful Raiders shouldn’t hurt Rivers’ resume: He has completed 75 of 100 passes for 994 yards, six TDs and no INTs in his past three outings vs. Oakland for a 126.0 rating.Plus, the Chargers have won five straight for their best record at the season’s midpoint since 2006.Meanwhile, the Raiders are such a mess that they have been outscored 55-3 over the past five quarters and are allowing a 113.9 passer rating, on pace for the worst in franchise history.Miami (5-4) at Green Bay (3-4-1)Somehow, the Dolphins are a wild-card contender despite being outgained by 704 yards and outscored by 38 points. Much of that can be attributed to the past three road games, in which they were outscored 107-47.On the bright side, Miami ranks first with 15 interceptions, including four last week against the Jets.Aaron Rodgers, of course, doesn’t throw picks. Rodgers has thrown 15 touchdowns to one interception, leading the league with a 0.3 percent interception percentage. And RB Aaron Jones leads the NFL at 6.03 yards per carry.Jacksonville (3-5) at Indianapolis (3-5)Two 3-5 marks that look much different. Jacksonville has dropped four in a row and is among the most disappointing clubs in football. Indy is giving a decent accounting of itself despite a lack of talent.There’s plenty of skill at quarterback, however. Andrew Luck, who missed 2017 with a shoulder injury, is back in fine form and has not been sacked in his past 154 pass attempts dating to the second offensive play against New England on Oct. 4. It’s the longest stretch of his pro career. Colts K Adam Vinatieri will be honored for breaking the NFL’s career scoring record two weeks ago at Oakland. Vinatieri needs one win to tie George Blanda (209) for most regular-season wins in league history.Buffalo (2-6) at New York Jets (3-6)With all that record scoring throughout the league, this could be an 8-5 snoozer.Sam Darnold has regressed behind center for the Jets and now has a foot injury. But let’s be fair: Darnold has very little help, especially with versatile RB Bilal Powell on IR. Last year’s starter, veteran QB Josh McCown, steps in.As for Buffalo Joe Barksdale Color Rush Jersey , well, maybe getting rid of Tyrod Taylor wasn’t such a wise move.New York Giants (1-7) at San Francisco (2-7), Monday nightThis isn’t likely to be as much of a sleep-inducer as Bills-Jets. At least a national TV audience gets to watch Saquon Barkley, the most dynamic rookie to hit New York since Odell Beckham Jr. — and without all the baggage.San Francisco has its own intriguing story after rookie QB Nick Mullens tore up Bay Area rival Oakland last week. Mullens joined Hall of Famers Jim Kelly and Fran Tarkenton as the only players with at least 250 yards passing, three TDs and no INTs in his career debut. STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Alex Spanos, the son of Greek immigrants who used a self-made fortune from construction and real estate to buy the Chargers in 1984, died Tuesday. He was 95.The Chargers announced Spanos’ death. Faye Spanos, his wife, died in August at 92.After building a nationwide construction empire based in Stockton, his Northern California hometown, Spanos realized a lifelong dream of owning an NFL franchise when he bought controlling interest in the San Diego Chargers from Gene Klein in 1984 for about $50 million. He eventually bought all but 3 percent of the team.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hailed Spanos as “an American success story, driven by a tireless work ethic inspired by his humble beginnings.”“Alex became one of the country’s most successful businessmen, but he never forgot his roots and the call to help others,” Goodell added in a statement. “Along with Faye, his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, Alex’s philanthropic and civic contributions touched many lives throughout California and around the country. He was a marvelous friend and partner whose impact on the NFL will never be forgotten. We all benefited from Alex’s compassion, character and zest for football and life.”Spanos hadn’t been in charge of day-to-day management of the Chargers since 1994, when he turned over the responsibilities to Dean Spanos, his oldest son. Dean Spanos decided to move the Chargers from San Diego to Los Angeles last year.The team announced in 2008 that Alex Spanos was suffering from dementia, and he eventually stopped attending games.“Laura and I send our condolences to the Spanos family on the death of their beloved patriarch, Alex Spanos,” former President George W. Bush said in a statement. “Alex was one of a kind. … He was a wonderful citizen and friend, and the Bush family will miss him.”Born in Stockton on Sept. 28, 1923, Spanos took an unlikely road to NFL ownership. After working in his father’s bakery and serving in the Air Force during World War II, Spanos borrowed $800 from a banker to buy a truck from which he sold sandwiches to migrant farm workers in the San Joaquin Valley. He began investing in real estate and started a construction company that mostly built apartment buildings, eventually expanding its footprint across the Sunbelt and Midwest.Spanos and his wife were generous philanthropists Casey Hayward Color Rush Jersey , giving to many causes related to hospitals, universities and youth programs. He gave extensively to the University of the Pacific, his alma mater in Stockton, where the Alex G. Spanos Center houses the Tigers’ basketball and volleyball teams.He was an avid golfer and counted among his friends Bob Hope, Gerald Ford and many prominent politicians. Hope sometimes attended Chargers home games, sitting in Spanos’ box.“Alex Spanos lived the American Dream,” former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Twitter. “His incredible story should inspire each and every one of us. As a son of immigrants, he rose from working in his father’s bakery to become a titan of real estate and business. But more importantly, he used his money and platform to give back to the world. He was a dear friend and I’ll miss him dearly.”During his third season of Chargers ownership, Spanos fired legendary coach Don Coryell after the Chargers started 1-7 in 1986. It took nine seasons for the Chargers to make their first playoff appearance under Spanos’ ownership, in 1992.After then-general manager Bobby Beathard nearly resigned following the 1993 season due to a feud over signing bonuses for free agents, Alex Spanos put Dean in charge of day-to-day operations of the team. With Beathard remaining, the Chargers made their only Super Bowl appearance, a 49-26 loss to San Francisco in January 1995.It was Alex Spanos who first raised the topic of a new stadium in 2000, just three years after the city expanded Qualcomm by 10,000 seats for the Chargers, touting it as being Super Bowl-quality. The stadium hosted Super Bowls in 1998 and 2003, but the city fell behind on maintenance and it fell out of the Super Bowl rotation.Alex Spanos wasn’t held in warm regard by many San Diego fans and was booed during a halftime ceremony to retire Hall of Famer Dan Fouts’ No. 14 in 1988. After that, Alex Spanos didn’t participate in similar ceremonies.The Chargers last year left San Diego, their home of 56 years, and moved north after years of fruitless attempts to secure funding for a new arena to replace aging Qualcomm Stadium. The Chargers are currently in the midst of their second of three seasons playing at StubHub Center in suburban Carson, but they will share a multibillion dollar stadium complex in Inglewood with the Los Angeles Rams upon its completion in 2020.Spanos is survived by four children, 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

After a brief stint as the #2 team in the AFC Brandon Bolden Jersey , the New England Patriots overtook the Kansas City Chiefs and are back as the favorites to represent the conference in Super Bowl LIII, per oddsmaker Bovada.The Patriots have 5/2 odds (28.6%) of winning the conference, edging out the Chiefs with 11/4 odds (26.7%). The Los Angeles Chargers (8/1, 11.1%) rank third, while the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are tied with 17/2 odds (10.5%). The Jacksonville Jaguars are the AFC South favorites with 9/1 odds (10.0%).The three other teams worth consideration are the Cincinnati Bengals with 16/1 odds (5.9%), Houston Texans with 18/1 odds (5.3%), and Miami Dolphins with 33/1 odds (2.9%).What these odds illustrate is that the AFC West is considered a top-heavy powerhouse between the Chiefs and Chargers (combined 37.8% chance of representing the conference), and the AFC South isn’t expected to make much noise in the postseason (Jaguars and Texans combine for a measly 15.3%).The AFC North’s three-team competition could ultimately prevent any of them from winning the AFC, as the odds of the Steelers, Ravens, or Bengals representing the conference (combined 26.9%) is less than the Patriots alone (28.6%). This is likely because the competition in the division could prevent any of the teams from earning a first round bye, making the road to the Super Bowl much more difficult.In fact Sony Michel Color Rush Jersey , Bovada has odds for whether the Patriots and Chiefs will play each other in the AFC Championship Game set at 2/1 (33.3%), which is pretty high odds with so much time left in the season.Looking at the big picture, the Patriots have the second-best odds of winning Super Bowl LII at 6/1 (14.3%), trailing only the Los Angeles Rams (10/3; 23.1%). The Chiefs (7/1; 12.5%), New Orleans Saints (8/1; 11.1%), and Minnesota Vikings (12/1; 7.7%) round out the top five. Article updated to account for the Dolphins week 10 loss to the Packers.The New England Patriots were demolished by the Tennessee Titans, but Bill Belichick and company are still in the driver’s seat in the AFC East. If the following super-realistic events take place, then the Patriots will be able to clinch the division in week 14.Take note that this isn’t the only scenario, just a very likely scenario.How the Patriots can clinch the AFC EastSo long as the Patriots beat the Dolphins in week 14, they will have the head-to-head tiebreaker sweep against Miami. That means the Patriots would win any tiebreaker scenarios with the Dolphins. If the Patriots get nine wins with one against the Dolphins and then one against either the Jets or Vikings; and the Dolphins lose to the Patriots and then one of their next two opponents; and the Bills and Jets record their eighth loss of the year, then New England will clinch the AFC East in week 14.This works because the Patriots will have 9 wins, making it impossible for the eight-loss Bills and Jets to rank ahead of New England. The scenario also has the Dolphins with seven losses https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Duke-Dawson-Jersey , meaning that at best they could record nine wins on the year- and if the Patriots hold the head-to-head tiebreaker, then nine-win at worst New England Patriots would win the division.That’s pretty realistic and there are other options. If the Patriots win their next three, then the Dolphins, Bills, and Jets will be eliminated from the AFC East regardless of how they perform. This scenario has the Patriots reaching 10-3, while handing the Dolphins their sixth loss of the year and New England would have the head-to-head tiebreaker The Bills and Jets have no path to 10 victories.A third path that’s less likely involves the Patriots losing to both the Jets and Vikings, but defeating the Dolphins to get to 8-5. If the Dolphins lose their next three to fall to 5-8; the Bills and Jets lose to the Jaguars and the Titans, respectively; and the Bills and Jets tie in week 14 to have matching 4-8-1 records, then the Patriots will also clinch the division.The two previously listed scenarios are far more likely.There are multiple paths to winning the AFC East, but all routes are likely to converge in week 14. Winning the division is the first major milestone that Bill Belichick always has his eyes set on each season- and if the Patriots take care of business, there’s a chance that the week 15 showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers could secure a first round bye for New England.

In what was expected to be the best game of the NFL season Joe Namath Color Rush Jersey , the Los Angeles Rams knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs to improve their record to 10-1.The game obviously featured a ton of offense with both teams crossing the 50 point threshold, but lets not forget that the game contained three defensive touchdowns too.Let’s revisit the matchups to watch:WR Robert Woods vs CB Steven NelsonLast week’s matchup to watch:The Rams had a bevy of weapons (and specifically receivers) who did damage on Monday Night. Woods started the game out hot drawing three penalties on Chiefs cornerbacks and eventually scored the first touchdown on that drive. Woods registered four receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown in the game. Look for Woods to continue to do damage moving forward.RG Austin Blythe vs DT Chris JonesLast week’s matchup to watch:Jones was an animal on MNF. He registered six tackles, two sacks, three tackles-for-loss, and a pass deflection. Blythe wasn’t the only one who had to block Jones as he flipped to LG Rodger Saffold’s side too. This game featured a lot of talented defensive lineman, and Jones was one of them.CB Marcus Peters vs WR Tyreek HillLast week’s matchup to watch:The Rams actually elected to have CB Sam Shields cover Hill because of his speed. Even though they anticipated on that being the best case scenario, Hill abused the Rams defense to the tune of 10 receptions for 215 yards and two touchdowns. On the flip side, Peters actually had a really solid game as his only major blunder in coverage was a snap against TE Travis Kelce where he slipped. Peters also registered himself an interception.DT Aaron Donald vs QB Patrick MahomesLast week’s matchup to watch:Aaron Donald was once again a superhuman, though I’m sure you’re not surprised by that at all. Donald registered two sacks in the game and both turned out to be sack-fumbles. One of them was a scoop-and-score by OLB Samson Ebukam and the other a major field flipper and recovery by OLB John Franklin-Myers. Mahomes obviously had a fantastic day as he nearly had 500 passing yards and six touchdowns. His performance fell apart with five total turnovers.SS John Johnson III vs TE Travis KelceLast week’s matchup to watch:JJ3 didn’t actually get to draw Kelce in a ton of man-on-man coverage as the Rams delegated those duties to a mix of Marcus Peters, Marqui Christian, and Mark Barron/Cory Littleton. JJ3 was still very active with a major run stop near the goal line on 3rd down. He had 11 tackles in the game as well as a TFL. Kelce clearly had a productive day with 10 receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown.LT Andrew Whitworth vs OLB Dee FordLast week’s matchup to watch:Whitworth might have had his rustiest performance of the season last night. Off the top of my head I recall one sack allowed by Whit, but there may have been more. Not only that, but Whit had a bad false start penalty in the final drive for the Rams that could have ice’d the game. He wasn’t terrible Nolan Cromwell Jersey , but you’re used to seeing a completely clean game from one of the league best left tackles.The Rams now have an NFL-best record of 10-1 and head into their bye week. Good news come in the form of reinforcements as CB Aqib Talib is likely to return off injured reserve in the week 13 game versus the Detroit Lions. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Seattle coach Pete Carroll had every reason to be frustrated after his Seahawks dropped a second straight game in the final minute.However, Carroll wasn’t sounding the alarm on his team’s season after a 36-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.“We aren’t slowing down. We’re going to keep running the football, keep setting the tempo,” Carroll said. “I love the way we’re playing. We just have to stay alive and keep going.”The success of the Seahawks’ running game is what has Carroll confident about his team’s hopes of contending for a playoff spot. Seattle (5-6) ran for 273 yards — the eighth most in a single game in franchise history — despite Chris Carson missing the game due to a hip injury. Rashaad Penny, who was selected in the first round of last April’s draft, had his first 100-yard game as a pro with 108 yards on 12 carries.Penny missed most of training camp due to a broken finger before slowly working his way back into the rotation once he improved in the pass game and on pass blocking.“I feel like I’ve grown up the last two to three weeks,” Penny said. “I told myself the whole game that I can do this and the coaches trust me.”Russell Wilson, who was 17 of 26 for 176 yards and three touchdowns, had just 11 pass attempts going into the fourth quarter. That was the lowest number of pass attempts through three quarters in his seven-year career.A turnover by Wilson has loomed large in both of Seattle’s recent losses. Last Sunday against the Chargers, he threw an interception in the fourth quarter that was returned for a touchdown. This week, he fumbled the ball on a strip sack by Rams linebacker Dante Fowler that was recovered at the Seahawks’ nine yard line with less than six minutes remaining. One play later, Brandon Cooks scored on a nine-yard run to give Los Angeles a 36-24 lead.Seattle scored on its ensuing possession and got the ball back after holding the Rams to a three-and-out. Wilson got Seattle to the Rams 36 yard line with 39 seconds remaining, but three straight incompletions ended any hopes of a comeback.The Seahawks haven’t been able to force a turnover in either loss Rodger Saffold Color Rush Jersey , which has frustrated the defense.“We just needed one tip ball or on the ground to flip the script and we didn’t come up with it,” defensive end Dion Jordan said. “We played these good teams hard twice and didn’t come up with the win. Pete doesn’t want us to get down on ourselves. This has to be turning point for us going into these last couple games.”Seattle’s decision to call a surprise onside kick down 26-24 with under 10 minutes remaining ended up costing them. Carroll said Sebastian Janikowski hit the ball wrong, which led to an easy recovery by Rams wide receiver Josh Reynolds. The short field ended up leading to a 20-yard field goal by Greg Zuerlein.“Before that play, actually, I see them talking to the ref and kind of pointing in that area. Something’s a little up. And then I saw his approach,” Reynolds said. “I used to be a kicker in high school, so I saw his approach change right when he was about to kick the ball, so I knew what it was.”The Seahawks have five of their final seven games at home, but it is not an easy stretch drive. It starts on Thursday night against Green Bay and also includes a game at Carolina (Nov. 25) and home games against Minnesota (Dec. 10) and Kansas City (Dec. 23).“We feel like we are a lot better than our record shows,” linebacker Bobby Wagner said. “We had some plays get away from us and we lost some games. There’s still a lot of football left. We’re confident that we’ll pull it out.”

As long as Mike Tomlin is standing on the Pittsburgh sideline Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , watching Ben Roethlisberger pass to Antonio Brown or give the ball to Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers will be favored to win the AFC North.It makes no difference that Randy Fichtner is the new offensive coordinator, or that Roethlisberger turned 36 in March.The Steelers are going to score points, and they’re going to play their best against division rivals in big games.Baltimore knows this all too well. Two years ago, Bell rushed for 122 yards and Roethlisberger connected with Brown for a last-minute touchdown in a 31-27 victory that clinched the AFC North title.Last December, Roethlisberger threw for 506 yards and two TDs, Bell scored twice and the Steelers beat the Ravens 39-38.Baltimore hopes to turn things around this year, but if the Ravens are to break a run of three straight years without a playoff appearance, it will likely be as a wild card.There are, by the way, two other teams in the division. Cincinnati and Cleveland deserve mention only because one will likely finish in third place and the other will occupy the cellar.In Cincinnati, coach Marvin Lewis got a two-year extension despite his NFL-record 0-7 mark in the playoffs. After two straight losing seasons, he’s getting a 16th chance to finally get it right.Cleveland is coming off an 0-16 embarrassment and can only hope to be respectable. Since the creation of the current AFC North in 2002, the Browns are the only team never to finish in first place.Some things to know about the AFC North:13View Gallery Gallery:FANTASY PLAYS: Changing fortunes for players on new teamsChuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports | Chuck CookFOR WHOM THE BELL TOILS: Pittsburgh and its “Killer Bs” 鈥?Roethlisberger https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Rod-Woodson-Jersey , Brown and Bell 鈥?have reached the playoffs four straight years. Yet all those trips to January have turned into just three postseason wins and no trips to the Super Bowl.While the rejuvenated Roethlisberger believes he can play until he nears 40, this may be his last legitimate shot to win a third championship. Bell is likely in his final year in black-and-gold after being unable to come to terms with the club on a new long-term deal.Bell is one of the most versatile backs in the league and not easily replaceable. He won’t lack for motivation. He believes he’s a unique talent and wants the paycheck to prove it.Pittsburgh’s best chance to return to the Super Bowl will rely heavily on having Bell at the top of his game and will certainly take the tradeoff of seeing Bell elsewhere in 2019 if it means hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in February.FAREWELL TOUR: Ozzie Newsome is the only general manager the Ravens have ever had, running the show in Baltimore since the team arrived from Cleveland before the 1996 season.Newsome will be stepping aside after this season, to be replaced by current assistant GM Eric DeCosta, who in 2019 will finally get the job he wanted after spurning offers from several other clubs.The Ravens have won two Super Bowls under Newsome, who in his final season has assembled a team that appears better than last year’s model.Having provided quarterback Joe Flacco with a new receiving group, Newsome addressed Baltimore’s most glaring weakness in 2017.BENGALS ON THE LINE: Cincinnati’s offense finished last in the league in yards last season, the worst showing in franchise history. The focus of their offseason was overhauling the line, which failed to protect Andy Dalton or open holes in the running game.The Bengals fired line coach Paul Alexander, traded with Buffalo for left tackle Cordy Glenn, signed right tackle Bobby Hart and drafted center Billy Price in the first round from Ohio State. Despite all that, the right side of the line struggled against the Cowboys in the second preseason game, renewing concerns that problems remain.GOTTA BE BETTER, CAN’T GET WORSE: Cleveland coach Hue Jackson is 1-31 in two seasons with Cleveland Rocky Bleier Color Rush Jersey , but Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam still believe they hired the right coach in 2016. Time will tell, but the pressure is on Jackson from the get-go to win or there could be more changes in a team that has known mostly upheaval for 20 years.The Browns drafted quarterback Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick, but the Heisman Trophy winner will begin the year as a backup to Tyrod Taylor, who helped Buffalo snap a 17-year postseason drought last season.___Predicted order of finish: Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Browns.11View Gallery Gallery:FANTASY PLAYS: Kelley, Darnold potential sleeper picksVincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports | Vincent Carchietta Earlier this week, following the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Week 15 win over the New England Patriots, I posed an article asking fans what they think the team should do with kicker Chris Boswell after another missed field goal on Sunday.The article created some great discussion, so I decided to write another one, this time with a different topic.What should the Steelers do with Jaylen Samuels when James Conner is healthy and back in the lineup?No, this isn’t similar to Boswell’s situation because no one is suggesting the Steelers get rid of Samuels. I am asking more regarding the bigger picture of how should the team handle the distribution of carries whenever Conner returns.Before Week 15, this was a no-brainer. Samuels had proven capable Terry Bradshaw Jersey , on occasion, but hadn’t sown anything near the explosion seen by the Heinz Field crowd vs. New England. After accumulating nearly 200 yards of offense, Samuels has officially put his bid in to see more reps — even when Conner returns to the field.If Conner isn’t 100% healthy yet, this is an easy decision, but for the sake of argument let’s assume Conner is ready to tote the rock the way he was before getting injured vs. the Chargers. The Steelers’ options would be having a dual-back system where Samuels and Conner split drives to keep the other fresh. Or maybe they turn Samuels into a third down/receiver/special package type player. For those who think this would be the smartest course of action, you would be cutting into Samuels’ touches significantly.This is a good problem to have. When you have two capable backs on the roster, it isn’t something negative, but a difficult decision when talking about the division of labor. So, with that said, how would you deploy these two backs if/when James Conner returns to the lineup?Let us know by voting in the poll below, and of course by explaining your vote in the comment section below!

Manchester United has confirmed that Marouane Fellaini has left the club. The 31-year-old Belgian midfielder has joined Chinese club Shandong Luneng having spent five-and-a-half years at Old Trafford.Prior to the official announcement TheTopSoccer , Fellaini confirmed his exit by posting a photograph of himself with his entourage at the airport on deadline day with the caption "Let's go." According to reports, Shandong Luneng paid Manchester United 10 million pounds for the service of the ex-Everton player.A statement released by the Premier League club read: "Manchester United can confirm that Marouane Fellaini has left the club on a permanent transfer."Everybody at United thanks Marouane for his services and wishes him well for the future as he completes his move to Shandong Luneng Taishan FC in China." Fellaini reunited with his former Everton boss David Moyes at Manchester United in 2013. He earned himself the reputation of being a "Plan B" for both Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho despite his unpopularity among the Red Devils' fan base.Under new interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Belgian midfielder played for 31 minutes in nine games. However, he leaves Manchester United 177 appearances under his belt of which he managed 22 goals.Marouane Fellaini won the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League during his stint with the Old Trafford outfit. It's El Clasico once again and the stakes in this encounter needs no exaggerating as it has been the case since time immemorial. While both Barcelona and Real Madrid have not exactly had a suave ride this season, grit Cheap Dortmund Soccer Team Uniform , character and zeal is usually the prime determinant in the clash of these two.Focusing the lens on the camp of the Catalans, optimism will not exactly be over the horizon with their form in recent weeks posing serious questions. While the quest to clinch the treble is well and truly going as planned, the upcoming test with Los Blancos, perhaps, has come a tad early for Valverde's men who have hit a few snags in recent games.In retrospect, Barca saw an experiment against Sevilla in the first-leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-final tie backfiring. In the absence of the talismanic Lionel Messi www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/chelsea , the Blaugrana fell to a 2-0 defeat at the Estadio Pizjuan Ramon Sanchez. Nonetheless, led by the Argentine, the Catalans staged a fierce to seal the upcoming clash with Real Madrid via an emphatic 6-1 victory at the Camp Nou. The following match-up with a struggling Valencia in La Liga should have been a ride in the park but ended up in a 2-2 draw.In candor, it was not a lucid reflection of the game as Barca had to fight back from a two-goal disadvantage. On a positive note, the journey to the last four stage of the Copa del Rey has served up a streak of inspiring results for the men in red and blue.They first secured a 5-1 aggregate victory over Cultural Leonesa in the Round of 32, registered a 4-2 aggregate win over Levante in the Last 16 stage and finally saw off Sevilla via a 6-3 aggregate scoreline.On paper Cheap Inter Milan Soccer Team Uniform , Barcelona looks like the eventual victors in the upcoming clash with Los Blancos. The Blaugrana's chances are even boosted more by the fact that Lionel Messi has been included in the squad list for the game. The 31-year-old striker, who has registered 29 goals and 17 assists this season, was initially believed to be a doubt for the Clasico after he picked up an injury in the draw with Valencia. Relatively, Real Madrid will also fancy its chances as a considerable number of its injured stars have recovered. The Merengues approach the clash on the back of a five-game winning streak and, with the likes of Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema spearheading the resurgence, a favorable result at Camp Nou will not be much surprising.However www.thetopsoccer.com/club-team-kit/juventus , while Real Madrid is slowly reshaping the identity of the club by giving youth its head in latter days, Barcelona's experience may prove vital in the blockbuster clash. To many, the Messi and Suarez-factors are enough to inspire a win for the host.And with the Bernabeu outfit's last two Copa del Rey trips to the Camp Nou ending in defeats, history is evidently on the side of Barca.

Not too long ago the Los Angeles Chargers were the bottom dwellers of the AFC West in 2015 and 2016. After reaching the postseason in 2013 https://www.broncosfanstore.com , the franchise slid into a downward spiral enduring coaching woes and a never-ending string of injuries that hampered their ability to be successful. But that was then and this is now. Under the leadership of second-year head coach Anthony Lynn, the Chargers have embarked upon a significant transformation and are emerging as one of the most formidable football teams in the National Football League.The Los Angeles Rams, the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints are considered by many to be the top three teams in the National Football League. Though the Chargers most certainly deserve top five consideration sporting a 7-2 record. In fact, the Chargers’ only two losses have been to the Chiefs and Rams earlier on in the season. Since their week three loss on the road to the Rams, the reborn Chargers have strung together six straight wins.That isn’t particularly good news for the Denver Broncos, who are trending in the exact opposite direction of the Chargers in their woeful 2018 campaign. The prospect of a second half of the season turnaround for the franchise doesn’t seem likely, but a win on the road in Los Angeles would provide a small spark for optimism for the team and its fan base moving forward. But how realistic is a win for the Broncos on Sunday? Before I get to my prediction, let’s take a deeper look at the identity of the Chargers offensively and defensively and delve into some keys to the game.A glance at the Chargers’ offenseThe Chargers enter this weekend’s game against the Broncos sporting a top ten offense with respect to yardage gained and points scored. They are averaging nearly 27 points and 400 yards per contest, with their passing offense ranked thirteenth and rushing offense ranked seventh league-wide.It all starts with quarterback Philip Rivers who is playing the most consistent football of his career in his fifteenth season. His top two receiving targets are Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams. Through nine games, Allen has 53 receptions for 687 yards and two touchdowns, while the speedster Williams has shown his penchant for being an incredible deep threat. He is averaging a whopping 19 yards per reception and has snagged 26 grabs for 497 yards and five touchdowns. But those two receivers aren’t the only ones the Broncos defense will have to be cognizant of tomorrow. After an underwhelming rookie campaign marred by injuries, second-year Clemson product Mike Williams is starting to show glimpses of why the Chargers used a top ten selection on him in the 2017 NFL Draft. Williams has also started to pick up steam in his second season and has hauled in 18 receptions for 338 yards and 5 touchdowns. With his impressive size, Williams is a significant threat in the red zone and will be a tough player for the Broncos’ defense to defend.The Chargers also boast an impressive rushing attack headlined by Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler. Gordon has rushed for 672 yards and 7 touchdowns on 125 attempts this season. His counterpart Ekeler has gained 345 yards on 59 carries. They are one of the league’s most underrated running back duos and both of them are sporting well over five-yard per carry averages. Not only that, but they are also dangerous as receiving threats out of the backfield.Make no mistake Broncos Country, this Chargers’ offense is loaded with weapons and have the ability to strike a touchdown at a moments notice. It will take a comprehensive effort defensively in order to keep them at bay. If the Broncos can limit the production of their running game and pin their ears back to get after Rivers Denver Broncos Customized Jerseys , they have a shot. If they can’t stop the run they will be in some serious trouble.A glance at the Chargers’ defenseFor as great as the Chargers’ offense has been this season, their defense has been equally as impressive. Their unit is allowing just a tick under 21 points a game, good enough for eighth-best in the NFL. In terms of yardage, they are middle-of-the-pack (fourteenth) giving up 356 yards per game. They have a penchant for getting after the passer and are tenth in the league with 26 sacks on the season and have forced 10 interceptions which is seventh most among all teams. It’s truly remarkable how staunch the Chargers’ defense has been considering star defensive end Joey Bosa, who registered 23 sacks and 111 tackles in his first two seasons hasn’t played a single snap for them this season due to a lingering foot injury. He will be a game-time decision for Sunday, but if he ends up playing that will make things extraordinarily difficult for the Broncos’ offensive line that has been depleted with injuries over the past several weeks.A tip of the hat is well-deserved and in order for the Chargers’ secondary. They boast a trio of impressive defensive backs in Casey Hayward, Desmond King and versatile rookie Derwin James. With Case Keenum’s appetite for interceptions, don’t be surprised if any of the aforementioned come away with a pick tomorrow afternoon.Keys to the gameUsually I focus on individual or positional match ups for the keys to the game segment, but I’ll keep it short and sweet. First and foremost, the run defense needs to show up and limit Gordon’s impact on the game. Second, the offense has to actually show some efficacy and generate some points and avoid turnovers. That might be an issue considering how many lineman will be playing in new positions on Sunday, but I will cross my fingers and hope for the best.Hart’s PredictionI don’t mean to be overtly negative, but I’m not too optimistic about the Broncos’ chances of winning on Sunday. The Chargers are a legitimate contender, whereas the Broncos have under-performed and underwhelmed all season long. One team is consistent on both sides of the ball while the other is not. I think the Chargers have too many weapons offensively and with the Broncos’ offensive line in disarray, I expect their Chargers’ defensive front to put a significant amount of pressure on Keenum and force him to several bad decisions that result in turnovers. Another week Denver Broncos T-Shirts , another disappointment.Chargers 27, Broncos 17. The running theme of the offseason was whether or not Vance Joseph and his coaching staff could improve from their poor performance in 2017. After the first four weeks of the season, the short answer has to be no. When the Denver Broncos lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football, it wasn’t the blowout some expected, but there was only one glaring issue.As Ian St. Clair and I discussed on the postgame recap, Vance Joseph and his staff seem unprepared for NFL action. Joe Woods continually puts the defense in the wrong scheme. Bill Musgrave forgets he has a legit one-two punch at running back. It is a disgrace to watch this staff ruin this talented group.Sure, we could talk about Keenum missing Demaryius Thomas for an easy touchdown at the end of the game. And we could bemoan his accuracy issues. We could discuss how Brandon Marshall continues to be a liability in coverage, or the lack of depth in the secondary. But none of that mattered.In truth, the Broncos went into their matchup with Kansas City looking like a team that was going to have 50 points scored on them. It was a legitimate concern for this writer. However, the defense was able to hold one of the highest scoring offenses in the league to just 27 points. Just imagine what the score would have looked like if the coaches knew what plays to call.No. The one big takeaway from this four-point loss is all about the inability of the coaching staff to put their players in a position to succeed. On the offensive side of the ball, how can anyone think not handing the ball to Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay all day was a good idea. Freeman had 8 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown. That’s 8.4 yards per carry! Am I missing something? Lindsay carried the ball 12 times for 69 yards and a score. Surely I’m not the only one noticing this, right?How can Bill Musgrave not notice his stud rookies averaging 6.8 yards per carry? Is it stubbornness? Stupidity? A lack of football knowledge? If I saw it, he must have seen it.Let’s not forget the pitiful decisions made by Joe Woods down the stretch. The defense scratched and clawed all game, overcoming pitiful offensive series after series. Even still, Joe Woods figured out a way to allow the Chiefs to go from 2nd and forever to getting a first down. Booger McFarland of the ESPN broadcast saw it Denver Broncos Hats , questioning why they were in man to man. Surely Joe Woods understands, right? He understands on 3rd and extra long at the end of the game you play off, and don’t allow a scrambling Mahomes to make things happen, right?And did he not notice that Patrick Mahomes was better when he was flushed outside the pocket? Perhaps a little more contain on the kid that seems to love school yard plays more than anything? My confusion just continued to grow throughout the game. No adjustments were made. No changes to try and eliminate big plays. Just relying on the talents of the players.Don’t get me wrong. Football is played by players, but isn’t the job of the coaching staff to prepare the team? Isn’t it their job to put the players in the best possible position to win? And it wasn’t like Andy Reid outcoached anyone. Vance Joseph et al. just couldn’t make the right call. The real concern is how simple it seemed to be for everyone else, and how difficult it was for the Broncos coaches.This is an indictment of the head coach, but it does not excuse the offensive and defensive coordinators. The worst part? Having to learn a whole new playbook in 2019.The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher and TuneIn.

This is a great time of year to be thankful for what we have Philip Rivers Color Rush Jersey , where we have been, and what the future holds. Although the Chargers have lost their way a bit in recent years, the month of December still holds such incredible promise! This advent calendar is an attempt to hearken back to these days of December joy. Each day will bring a new advent from the Bolts’ history that makes it wonderful to be a Chargers fan.Dec. 04: The Last Successful Free Kick in the NFLDon’t worry if you’ve never heard of or seen a free kick in the NFL before. They’re about as rare as the national media remembering that the Chargers moved to Los Angeles two years ago and no longer play in San Diego. Low and behold though, our story will come to an end in the Bay area. For those of you who don’t know what a free kick is when after a fair catch, an NFL team has the right to take a free kick from the line of scrimmage on the next play. If the kick goes through the uprights, the kicking team scores 3 points. Slow down though, it’s not as easy as it seems. Granted, kicking a 95 yard field goal is nearly impossible, the rules for making a free kick after a poor punt could come with a cost. Here are the rules.There is no snap.The defense must stand at least 10 yards from the line of scrimmage until the ball is kicked.The kicking team may not use a tee. The ball must be placed or drop-kicked.Even if time expired on the preceding play, the fair-catching team may still attempt the kick.Now, this would seem like it’s easier in College Football mainly due to poor execution from a young player. Not really. In fact, since 1949, the NCAA tried to eliminate all fair catches. That wasn’t going to last due to player’s safety. Following the 1950 season, college football restored the fair catch Melvin Gordon Color Rush Jersey , but explicitly removed the fair catch kick rule. Basically, it you want to see this done, go to your local high school and pray for a miracle or hope a NFL team tries to bring it back. Since 1925, the free kick has been implemented into the league for players to try. The big kicker however is how limited it truly is. In nearly 85 years of the professional sport’s existence, the free kick has only been attempted 26 times during the regular season. 28 if you included playoffs but knowing the Chargers, not so much. But never fear Chargers fans, the kick has not been successfully preformed since 1976. The culprit? You guessed it, the San Diego Chargers. Lining up for a 45-yard field goal, Chargers kicker Ray Wersching would nail the kick and head into the locker room for halftime. This would put the Chargers up 27-10 and eventually seal the the win. In the history of free kicks, the kick has only gone through the uprights five times. The Chargers are the final team to do so. So while spirits are high heading into a 9-3 record for the month of December, some Charger fans like to think the world is over since their team isn’t the best in the league. While that’s true, the other Los Angeles team is, the Chargers are in the record books for something Greg Zuerlein will probably never have a chance to try. In the end, the Chargers still are making history. PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers let another one slip away.For the second straight week Austin Ekeler Color Rush Jersey , the Steelers held a second-half lead and lost. This time, Pittsburgh blew its biggest lead ever at home, as Michael Badgley kicked a 29-yard field goal on the final play, lifting the Los Angeles Chargers to a 33-30 victory over the Steelers on Sunday night.“It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish, and they finished the game,” Steelers defensive tackle Cameron Heyward said.The Steelers (7-4-1) were on a six-game winning streak before losing last week at Denver and again on Sunday. It’s their first two-game losing streak of the season.The Steelers, who held a 23-7 lead to start the second half, blew a 16-point lead at home for the first time in franchise history. The Steelers were previously 174-0-1 all-time when ahead by 16 points at home. It was the first time the Steelers blew a 16-point lead overall since Nov. 8, 1981, against Seattle.“The game was 23-7 and as a defense, we can’t surrender points,” Heyward said. “We just gotta play better. I don’t care who it is, it’s unacceptable.”Ben Roethlisberger threw for 281 yards and two scores for the Steelers Joey Bosa Color Rush Jersey , who are clinging to the AFC North lead over surging Baltimore. Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for a season-high 154 yards and a touchdown. James Conner added 60 yards rushing and two touchdowns before leaving in the fourth quarter with a lower leg contusion.“It’s a bad loss,” Roethlisberger said. “You just can’t play bad football against a good football team.”Things looked good in the first half when Pittsburgh scored on four of six possessions. Conner scored on a pair of 1-yard runs, giving the Steelers an early 13-0 lead following a missed extra point. The Steelers, who won four of the previous five meetings against Los Angeles, continued to surge, and pushed the lead to 16-6.Pittsburgh, which came into the game 18-3 in December since 2013 – the best mark in the NFL over that span – seemed poised for another masterful December performance with an end-of-half score, nearly driving the length of the field in just 1:18. Roethlisberger capped the six-play, 91-yard series by threading a 28-yard touchdown pass between three defenders to Brown for the score.But, Philip Rivers and Los Angeles recovered in the second half.Rivers completed 26 of 36 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns. Keenan Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a score, while Justin Jackson ran for 63 yards and a touchdown in place of injured starter Melvin Gordon. Pittsburgh limited Los Angeles to just two yards rushing in the first half, tying the third-fewest allowed by the Steelers since Heinz Field opened in 2001.“We just didn’t tackle better in the second half,” Heyward said. “We didn’t stop the run as much. We have to be better as a defense.”Los Angeles opened the second half with 23 unanswered points, turning a 23-7 halftime deficit into a 30-23 lead.Allen caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Rivers late in the third quarter on a play in which Pittsburgh defensive backs Sean Davis and Joe Haden collided going for the ball Forrest Lamp Color Rush Jersey , which popped up in the air and landed squarely in Allen’s hands.Desmond King added a 73-yard punt return, and Allen pulled in the 2-point conversion to tie the game at 23. Jackson’s 18-yard burst up the middle gave the Chargers a 30-23 lead.Rookie Jaylen Samuels replaced Conner and caught a 10-yard touchdown pass for Pittsburgh with 4:10 to play to tie the game at 30. That left Rivers ample time to one-up Roethlisberger, a fellow member of the vaunted 2004 draft class that includes New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.Rivers calmly led the Chargers 64 yards in 11 plays, including a 12-yard pass to Allen on third-and-4 at the Pittsburgh 34 that pushed Los Angeles close enough to bring on Badgley for the win.Badgley initially missed a 39-yard kick, but Pittsburgh was called for offsides.“It looked like all of us jumped off at the same time,” Haden said. “Sometimes when you get a good jump, it looks like you jumped offsides. I would have to look at it again, but I didn’t feel like we were offsides.”Badgley’s ensuing 34-yard attempt was blocked, but the Steelers were flagged again for jumping across the line of scrimmage before the snap. Badgley drilled his third attempt at the game-winner, as the Chargers completed the biggest opposing comeback in Heinz Field history with just their fourth win in Pittsburgh in 19 tries.“You can’t say anything about our offense, our offense put up 30 points,” Heyward said. “We didn’t get the job done as a defense.”

Less than 24 hours after their defeat in Super Bowl 52 https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Cyrus-Jones-Jersey , the New England Patriots also lost their defensive coordinator: Matt Patricia accepted the role as the Detroit Lions’ new head coach, leaving the Patriots with a vacancy they did not experience over the last six seasons. Officially, the team never filled the void as it decided against naming a coordinator for this side of the football ahead of the start of the 2018 league year in March.While nobody is currently holding the defensive coordinator title, Brian Flores is serving as the coordinator-in-the-making. The 37-year old, who played linebacker at Boston College before joining the Patriots, started his coaching career with the club as a scouting assistant and climbed the ladder all the way up to linebackers coach, a position he is in since 2016. Now in his 15th season with the club, Flores is filling two roles.Not only is he still coaching his position group, he also is serving as the Patriots’ new defensive signal caller. Considering his experience and football acumen, it is hardly a surprise that he has been made Patricia’s heir in all but job title. However, the change in coordinator entails more than just a different person wearing the headset and calling the shots from the sideline. It also means a change in communication.“It’s obviously something that’s changed,” New England defensive line coach Brendan Daly told reporters during a conference call on Tuesday. “It changes year-to-year based on how the staff is structured and the roles that everyone is in. I do think that one of the most important things that happens on game day is that flow of communication and the ability to make adjustments within the game.”As Daly pointed out, Flores now takes on a bigger role in this process. “It’s obviously different because he’s focused on calling the game: so, within the series, his role is significantly different than what it’s been,” the fifth-year Patriots coach said. “At the end of the series, it is a little bit different: he’s got much more of a responsibility for the overall defense, and therefore more coverage and back-end specific things in terms of communication with Josh Boyer and Steve Belichick.”According to Daly, Flores’ responsibilities after each defensive drive looked differently when Patricia was still around as the coordinator overseeing the whole unit. “In the past Jordan Richards Color Rush Jersey , [Flores] and I would have a little bit more exchange between series just front-specific as he was working with the linebackers,” Daly said. “But, those roles have changed a little bit, and we still have some of those conversations, but they’re not necessarily as specific to the linebacker position — more overall front related.”So how have Flores’ new responsibilities impacted the overall communication? Not too much, if Daly is to be believed. “I’d say that’s been a good process and something that it takes a little bit of time to work your way into as it changes,” the 43-year old said. “But, I feel like 11, 12 weeks into the season here, we’ve kind of gotten a rhythm in that regard and I think that’s been something that’s been an asset for us.”“I feel like that’s been a pretty good process, specifically the flow of information with the guys from the press box and what they’re able to see and then what we’re able to gather on the sideline in terms of communication from the players coming off the field and tying all that together,” the fifth-year Patriots coach continued. “It’s been a group process for sure. I’d say everyone has played a major role in that.” New England’s win over the Jets Sunday afternoon was a pretty sweet ending to an overly-stuffed Thanksgiving weekend.Not much better on a chilly weekend than family and friends, the couch, the fireplace and football. The Steelers and Dolphins both losing was the gravy on top, boosting the Patriots to the No. 2 seed in the AFC, and fourth overall in the power rankings. Not a bad day’s work, closing out November on a high note. Climbing to the No. 1 spot is out of the Patriots hands right now even if they win out, but a playoff bye is still in the team’s control. To that end the pressure is on for the Patriots to beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh on December 16th, (how crucial does that win over the Chiefs in Week 6 look now?) But the Steelers don’t exactly have an easy schedule left: Chargers Jonathan Jones Jersey , at Raiders, Patriots, at Saints, and Bengals. That’s a tough slog.The Patriots just need to take care of their week-to-week, game-by-game business and they’ll be in a good spot. Next up the Minnesota Vikings who put on a good show against the Packers, beating them 24-17. Patriots will enjoy playing in front of the home crowd again after two games on the road, and I’m thinking it will show up as a 10-point win.GO PATS!Around the AFC East: (8-3) New England Patriots vs. (6-4-1) Minnesota Vikings(5-6) Miami Dolphins vs. (4-7) Buffalo Bills(3-8) New York Jets at (5-6) Tennessee TitansAFC Matchups: (9-2) Kansas City Chiefs at (2-9) Oakland Raiders(8-3) Houston Texans vs. (4-6-1) Cleveland Browns(7-3-1) Pittsburgh Steelers vs. (8-3) Los Angeles Chargers(6-5) Indianapolis Colts at (3-8) Jacksonville Jaguars(6-5) Baltimore Ravens at (4-7) Atlanta Falcons(5-6) Denver Broncos at (5-6) Cincinnati Bengals****************************************************4th - Frank Schwab (Yahoo! Sports): The Patriots got Rob Gronkowski and Sony Michel back on Sunday. Rex Burkhead was activated off IR on Monday. The Patriots aren’t getting the same hype as a lot of other teams, but they’re 8-3, a lock to win the division and finally are getting healthy on offense. The Steelers’ loss at Denver might help them too, in terms of playoff seeding.4th - Experts (ESPN): Toughest game left: Week 15 at Pittsburgh. It’s the easy choice, even though a tough Vikings team comes to town Sunday, and a trip to Miami (Dec. 9) is always a challenge for the team. Not only is Patriots-Steelers the toughest remaining game on the schedule, but with Pittsburgh eyeing revenge for last season’s defeat, it also could play a big part in whether the Patriots earn a playoff bye.4th - Vinnie Iyer (Sporting News): Tom Brady didn’t put together an offensive masterpiece against the Jets, but looking at how the backs, receivers and tight ends were involved, the Patriots fielded the kind of balanced, versatile offense we’ve come to expect. They were overdue for a strong road performance overall.4th - Nate Davis (USA Today): Sunday would seem to be strong indication they’ve got all primary chess pieces back and are ready to peak at just right time. Per usual.4th - MMQB Staff (SI): The Patriots rebounded from a loss with their trademark ho-hum, pull-ahead-by-two-touchdowns-late win at the Meadowlands. They clinched their 18th straight year at .500 or better Troy Niklas Color Rush Jersey , which is just insane.4th - Joe Giglio (NJ.com): Just when it was easy to count the Patriots out of the race for the No. 1 seed, they crept back in the mix.4th - Elliot Harrison (NFL.com): The Patriots file another one in the win column with their two-touchdown victory over the Jets, a typical AFC East matchup between these two. New York was game early on, but then Gronk ate a safety on his way to hauling in a vertical strike from Tom Brady right up the seam. If there was a poster-worthy touchdown that could sum up Gronk’s career, that was it. Perhaps the only shocker in the win was running back James White, who was at one point seemingly on his way to a 100-catch season, being “held” to one reception. The defense? Two hundred and sixty-four passing yards allowed, while the Jets were limited to 26 minutes in time of possession. Not bad.4th - Mike Florio (ProFootballTalk): The AFC top seed seems like a formality for the Patriots, again.4th - Mark Maske (Washington Post): The Patriots struggled for a while against the Jets but settled down and took care of business, and QB Tom Brady put up some more Brady-like passing numbers. Sunday’s matchup with the Vikings in Foxborough, Mass., is very interesting, and the Patriots now are back in position for a first-round playoff bye.4th - Pete Prisco (CBS Sports): They came off their bye with a nice road victory against the Jets. They had to be thrilled to get production from Rob Gronkowski again.4th - Expert Consensus (Bleacher Report): When we last saw the defending AFC champions, the New England Patriots were doing something the New England Patriots don’t do—getting drilled in a November game. However, in Week 12, the Pats got back to doing what they do best—winning football games. And they convinced Gagnon that there’s no reason to panic: “New England’s last three wins have all come by at least 14 points, and that weird pre-bye loss to Tennessee was probably an aberration. At the very least, the Pats deserve the benefit of the doubt. It’s fair to wonder if Tom Brady is slowing down, but he’s got a lot of support from that running game. Tough to bet against this team in the AFC.” Granted https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Ja_Whaun-Bentley-Jersey , it’s not a major achievement to beat the Jets, who were themselves coming off a blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills. But in handling the Jets, the Patriots not only got back on track but got big contributions from a pair of players who have been battling injuries. Rookie tailback Sony Michel piled up 133 yards and a score on 21 carries, and tight end Rob Gronkowski added three catches for 56 yards and a score of his own. As is usually the case this time of year, the AFC East is all but a done deal. But the Pats’ playoff seed is anything but—especially with the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers on the slate over the next few weeks.4th - Staff (AP Pro32).5th - Rebecca Toback (SB Nation): Speaking of the Patriots, they beat the Jets to the surprise of no one, but it’s clear this New England team isn’t as dominant as many recent New England teams. Still, the AFC East will easily be won by the Patriots once again and they’re in position to have the No. 2 seed in the AFC.5th - Bryan Fischer (Athlon Sports): Not the best of efforts early but the Patriots eventually put away the Jets for a comfortable second half win on the road. It will be interesting to see what kind of effect Rex Burkhead will have on the offense now that he’s finally ready to return to the lineup to complement Sony Michel.7th - Russell Baxter (FanSided): Recap: The last time we saw Bill Belichick’s team it was being manhandled in Nashville by the Titans. Now the Pats were back in action after an off week and looked to take out their frustrations on the New York Jets (also off in Week 11) at MetLife Stadium. New England spotted the home team a 7-0 lead before Tom Brady found tight end Rob Gronkowski for a 34-yard score. Tied 10-all at halftime, the Patriots took over after intermission and closed the deal by outscoring the Jets, 17-3, the remainder of the game. Rookie running back Sony Michel carried 21 times for 133 yards and one TD and Tom Brady threw for 283 yards and two scores without being sacked.Next Week: The Patriots host the Minnesota Vikings for the first time since 2010, when Belichick’s club came away with a 28-18 victory. All told, these interconference foes clash for the first time since ’14. New England has owned this infrequent series as of late, prevailing in four consecutive meetings dating back to ’02.Week 13 Average Rank: 4.3 (+0.6)

Amari Cooper hadn’t scored since Dec. 9 when he had three scores against the Eagles. It took him only two catches and 8:57 to score against the Rams.Cooper’s 29-yard catch-and-run to the end zone has given the Cowboys a 7-3 lead.On the Cowboys’ first drive Andrew Whitworth Color Rush Jersey , Cooper caught two passes for 35 yards and drew a 15-yard penalty on Marcus Peters for unnecessary roughness after Ezekiel Elliott gained 5 yards on fourth-and-one from the Rams 49.Cooper mentioned his history with Peters and Aqib Talib earlier in the week. Cooper previously played for the Raiders, Talib with the Broncos and Peters with the Chiefs.Dak Prescott completed 3-of-3 passes for 48 yards, including a 13-yarder to tight end Blake Jarwin. Jarwin was questionable with a high-ankle sprain. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Consider St. Louis a big fan of the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday.Seventeen years after the Patriots beat the Rams for the NFL championship, fans around here will again be watching when the two go at it in Atlanta. Thing is, allegiances have changed since the Rams moved back to Los Angeles three years ago, leaving behind a legacy and some bruised feelings.Rams haters will have plenty of company in bars this Sunday. At the 11 Hotshots sports bars around St. Louis, fans will get discounted pitchers of beer for every Patriots touchdown. Photo likenesses of Rams owner Stan Kroenke will be placed on dartboards — and in urinals."It's just something kind of fun we can add to the mix and hopefully give St. Louisans some solace as they watch the game," Hotshots marketing director Justin Boyd said.Sports fans Bob Rothschild and Phil Heidemann frowned at the mention of Kroenke's name as they lunched at a Hotshots in the St. Louis suburb of Fenton. Despite their disdain, both plan to watch the Super Bowl."I'll be watching https://www.ramsfanstore.com/John-Johnson-Jersey , but I'll be rooting for the Patriots," said Heidemann, 60.Rather than a Super Bowl party, the Tick Tock Tavern is hosting a "Superb Owl" party with jazz music and a movie — but no football.Even in baseball-crazy St. Louis, the Rams were the toast of the town in their "Greatest Show on Turf" days. They won the 2000 Super Bowl and were heavy favorites to win again in 2002, until a second-year quarterback named Tom Brady led a last-minute drive culminating in a game-ending field goal and a 20-17 New England win.After that, football in St. Louis was never the same.The Rams got old and the glory days faded into a five-year stretch starting in 2007 when they went a dismal 50 games under .500, 15-65. Attendance dropped. Georgia Frontiere, the St. Louis native who brought the franchise to her hometown in 1995 Josh Reynolds Color Rush Jersey , died in 2008 and Kroenke, a minority owner since the relocation from Los Angeles, bought the team two years later.At first, the native Missourian denied any intention of moving. But by 2015, it became clear Kroenke had his eyes on California. In January 2016, despite St. Louis' proposal to build a $1 billion stadium on the Mississippi River that would have been largely funded with public money, NFL owners OK'd the move back to LA.Turns out St. Louis can hold a grudge. In the shadow of the Gateway Arch, Kroenke and his team are even less popular than the Chicago Cubs, the Cardinals‘ archrival. It didn't help that Kroenke's lawyers put together a scathing evaluation of St. Louis as an NFL market on their way out of town.The departure even spurred lawsuits that linger to this day. The St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority Samson Ebukam Jersey , St. Louis city and St. Louis County alleged in a 2017 suit that the Rams' move violated a 1984 league guideline that was established after the Raiders moved from Oakland to Los Angeles. That case is still pending. The Rams also recently agreed to pay $24 million to personal seat license holders in St. Louis who filed a class-action lawsuit.Of course, the fact that the Rams got good so fast has been another blow.Randy Karraker, host of The Fast Lane afternoon radio show on 101 ESPN in St. Louis, figures that about 90 percent of St. Louisans are anti-Ram. He's among them, so much so he can't even bear to watch the Super Bowl."It's impossible to derive pleasure from that game," Karraker said. "I hate the Patriots for what they have done to football, and I hate the Rams. So it's a no-win situation for me."Many ex-fans took to after the Rams beat New Orleans in the NFC championship game. One wrote that St. Louisans still rooting for the Rams "are the same people who wanna be best friends with their exes." Former U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted a meme of the late Bob Ross painting a serene landscape."This is what I'm watching on Sunday February 3 at around 5:30. For 3 plus hours," she wrote. "Better than the alternative."

Former Cardinals safety Kwamie Lassiter died on Sunday after having a heart attack.Lassiter Joseph Noteboom Color Rush Jersey , who was 49 years old, joined the Cardinals after going undrafted out of Kansas in 1995 and developed into a starter for Arizona over the course of his eight seasons in the desert. He may be best remembered for his four interceptions against the Chargers in the final week of the 1998 season as they helped the Cardinals win a game that clinched a playoff berth.“We were all devastated to learn of Kwamie鈥檚 passing today and our hearts go out to all of his family and friends,” Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill said in a statement. “Kwamie came to the Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent. He not only became a key contributor to our team for eight seasons but continued to make an impact on this community after his playing days ended. He will be missed greatly.”Lassiter closed out his career by playing one season for the Chargers and one season with the Rams. He appeared in 129 games overall and finished his NFL career with 25 interceptions.Our condolences go out to his family and loved ones. Many an NFL opponent has had a game plan waylaid by the speed, strength and instinct of Aaron Donald over his not-yet-five-full seasons in the league.The 6-foot-1, 280-pound kingpin of the Los Angeles Rams‘ defense was a unanimous pick for the best defensive tackle in the NFL by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press in this week’s edition of the position rankings.“He’s been as disruptive as anyone on the interior, ever, since entering the league,” said the AP’s Josh Dubow, who is based in the Bay Area.Just ask the Minnesota Vikings.The Rams had a 10-point lead on Minnesota last month, but the Vikings were on the move as the fourth quarter began and Kirk Cousins dropped back.Donald leaped off the line to engage with his blocker, before breaking free to the inside of the guard with a textbook swim move. After shoving the center aside, Donald darted forward and swallowed up the quarterback with a bear hug for a 10-yard loss and a harbinger for a punt.The Vikings still had a chance later in the game, trailing by just a touchdown, when Cousins settled in the pocket looking to pass. Donald veered right this time to squeeze between the guard and the tackle, foiling a desperate attempt by the center to slow him down as he closed in on another sack. After tossing Cousins to the turf Jamon Brown Color Rush Jersey , Donald simply pointed to his right biceps for his latest celebration.“Early in the game I thought the protection was good,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said after the 38-31 loss to the Rams last month, “and then Donald took it over a little bit at the end.”Donald also topped the AP rankings for defensive tackles last year.After staying away from offseason workouts for a second straight year to protest his lack of a new contract, the Rams finally relented at the end of the preseason with a six-year extension for Donald worth $135 million.For the Rams (5-0), one of the NFL’s two remaining unbeaten teams, the defensive tackle tandem of Donald and newcomer Ndamukong Suh has the potential to change a game as much as their high-octane offense.“It’s almost unfair the way the Rams have stocked up on their defensive line,” said the AP’s Teresa Walker, who’s based in Nashville.Suh finished fifth in the voting released Friday, following Geno Atkins of the Cincinnati Bengals, Fletcher Cox of the Philadelphia Eagles and Gerald McCoy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That’s quite the quintet of experience, power and quickness at a position that’s as stacked with elite players as any around the league these days. Donald, Atkins, Cox, McCoy and Suh have played a combined 39 seasons and been picked for the Pro Bowl 24 times, with a cumulative total of 250½ career sacks playing a role that’s predicated on stopping the run first.Suh and McCoy were the second and third overall picks in the 2010 draft. Atkins https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Greg-Zuerlein-Jersey , who went in the fourth round that year, is in the top two with Donald in sacks, quarterback pressures and quarterback hits over the last five seasons. This year, Atkins is tied for the league lead with six sacks.“Doesn’t seek attention, but his consistent excellence demands it,” said the AP’s Simmi Buttar, who’s based in New York.The only new addition to the top 10 from last year’s rankings was Jurrell Casey of the Tennessee Titans, who finished sixth.Kawann Short of the Carolina Panthers was seventh, DeForest Buckner of the San Francisco 49ers was eighth, Linval Joseph of the Minnesota Vikings was ninth and Damon Harrison of the New York Giants was 10th. Yes, that was Joseph rumbling down the field last week with a fumble he caught midair and returned 64 yards for a touchdown .“Might be the fastest 330-pound guy in sports,” said the AP’s Rob Maaddi, who’s based in Philadelphia.Now that’s a true defensive tackle.

On day when Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster combined for just 84-yards and one touchdown Vance McDonald Jersey , it is hard to imagine the Pittsburgh Steelers could win a game against any opponent, let alone the New England Patriots. But on this Sunday at Heinz Field, the Steelers somehow achieved the impossible thanks to the contributions of the 165th pick of the 2018 NFL draft.While the performance of the defense cannot be overlooked, the efforts of Jaylen Samuels were crucial to a Pittsburgh victory. The Steelers would finally gain control of the game in the second half behind his strong running and he would end the day with 142-yards off 19 carries for an average of 7.5 yards an attempt. Two receptions for another 30 yards would also include a critical third down catch on the final drive of the fourth quarter.The young running back set the tone early with a 25-yard run on the team’s opening drive and completed runs of 10, 17, 14, 15 and 15 yards throughout the contest. Speaking to the media after the game, Samuels revealed it was the first time he had rushed for more than 100-yards in his life, dating back all the way through high school and the first time he had ever had as many as 19 attempts.However, despite all his yards on the ground, his catch on the final drive of the game might have been his biggest play of the afternoon.When Pittsburgh needed a scoring drive that could eat up time Joe Haden Color Rush Jersey , Samuels would pitch in for 49 of the 61-yards the Steelers gained on their final series that began on their own 4-yard. A drive that started with 7.43 left in the game would consume 5.13 off the clock and wipe out New England’s timeouts in the process.Silencing the doubters who came out in force after his 28-yards from 11 carries in Week 14, the rookie running back will face a much stiffer challenged next Sunday against the No. 1 ranked run defense in the New Orleans Saints if James Conner is forced to sit out once again. PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jaylen Samuels spent the months leading up to the 2018 NFL draft answering one question over and over again."People were like, ‘What position (are you) going to play?'" the Pittsburgh Steelers rookie said. "And I just kept saying ‘I'm going to play running back.'"Not everyone believed him. The NFL included. The NFL was so skeptical of the former North Carolina State star's potential out of the backfield he was told shortly before the scouting combine that he wouldn't be working out with the running backs but the tight ends. Samuels shrugged his shoulders, figuring it was better to be at the combine — even if it wasn't your preferred position — than stuck at home watching it on TV.Fast forward 10 months. They don't ask Samuels where he fits anymore. Not after the 22-year-old lit up the New England Patriots for 142 yards rushing and 172 total yards in a victory over the New England Patriots last Sunday.Samuels carried the ball 19 times — more than he can remember at any level of football — and caught a pair of passes, including a leaping 20-yard, fourth-quarter grab that helped the Steelers run some clock before adding a late field goal that pushed the margin to seven points.There were the usual aches and pains on Monday, but nothing out of the ordinary after the heavy workload. Good thing, because Samuels figures to be just as busy when the Steelers (8-5-1) travel to New Orleans to face the NFC South champion Saints (12-2) on Sunday.Newly minted Pro Bowler James Conner is still dealing with a sprained left ankle that's forced him to miss the past two weeks, meaning Pittsburgh's running game will be in the hands of a fifth-round pick who has quickly morphed from project to capable starter.Samuels earned a spot out of training camp thanks to the way he embraced special teams and had found a small niche as a receiving threat — he's N.C. State's career leader in receptions (202), just ahead of former NFL wide receivers Jerricho Cotchery and Torry Holt — before Conner went down in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers. Samuels came in and caught a 10-yard touchdown pass on the next play.His first NFL start didn't go quite as planned. He managed just 28 yards on 11 carries in a stunning loss to the Oakland Raiders. The problem wasn't so much Oakland's defense or the iffy turf so much as Samuels' own jitters."I felt like I wasn't being patient enough, just being in a rush https://www.steelerssportshop.com/James-Washington-Jersey , hurry up and get to the hole and try to get there," Samuels said. "(Against the Patriots) I could definitely feel it all sorting out. The holes are just opening. I just felt smoother and it felt like it was more my game."A game that not every college coach that recruited Samuels out of high school understood. UNC brought the Charlotte native in for a camp and had him practice with the linebackers."I was like, ‘What am I doing? Why am I going backward'" Samuels said. "I need to be going forward with the ball."N.C. State assistant coach Eddie Faulkner saw the potential and during the recruiting process pointed out all the varied ways the Wolfpack could use him. Samuels spent four record-breaking years doing a little bit of everything.Running back. Fullback. H-back. Tight end. Slot receiver. His polished route running was immediately apparent to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger when Pittsburgh used its second pick of the fifth round on Samuels."He has really good hands, soft hands you can really throw it all over the place and he can make plays," Roethlisberger said."I think he showed that this week that we can put him out there and we can do some things with him and hopefully we are just scratching the surface."While Steelers coach Mike Tomlin jokingly replied "who said I had confidence?" when asked what gave him faith Samuels could produce, he's not particularly surprised by what he saw against the Patriots. The shakiness in Oakland was understandable. The bounce back versus New England was promising."There are oftentimes when you walk into stadiums, particularly as a young guy, it is a first time for a lot of things," Tomlin said. "And I am sure as he continues to step into stadiums with a significant role for us he'll check some boxes and do some things he hasn't done before, but that's just a very natural thing in terms of a young player."One who no longer has to deal with questions about where he fits.NOTES: Conner and LB Bud Dupree (knee) did not practice Wednesday. … S Terrell Edmunds (concussion) was limited. … DE Cam Heyward (knee) was a full participant. … Roethlisberger and C Maurkice Pouncey were given the day off.

It's finally official. Alvaro Morata has sealed a temporary move away from Chelsea Cheap Real Madrid Soccer Shirts , joining Atletico Madrid on a loan.The Spanish striker, who endured an awful spell with the Blues, packed his bags and left Stamford Bridge after failing to impress Maurizio Sarri. The forward was eventually dropped by the Italian, with the London giant eventually signing Gonzalo Higuain to help solve their goalscoring issues.As a result, Morata left England in favor of a return to Spain. He will now don the Rojiblancos jersey until the 2019-20 season.Having spent four seasons at Atletico's academy, Morata spoke with great excitement about his Wanda Metropolitano switch. He told the club's official website:"I'm very happy and proud to be here. I can't wait to start training www.thetopsoccer.com/tottenham-hotspur , meet my new teammates and play." After scoring only 16 times in 47 Premier League appearances, the former Juventus man will hope to get his career back on track with Simeone's side. He will wear the number 22 jersey and will join fellow countryman Diego Costa in attack.Costa has struggled to find the back of the net this term in the Spanish Primera Division, scoring only once all season. Hence Morata's arrival will offer Simeone options in attack as they aim to beat Barcelona to the league title while getting their hands on the Champions League crown. Tottenham are eyeing a move for Barcelona forward Malcom, according to media reports in Spain, with the reigning La Liga champions open to offers for the Brazilian.The 21 year old signed from Bordeaux in the summer for a fee of ?0 million, plus add ons Cheap Argentina Soccer Jerseys , however injuries and the impressive form of French international Ousmane Dembele has restricted his first team opportunities so far in 2018-19.Ernesto Valverde is now believed to be willing to listen to bids for the speedy attacker, although the club will be determined to see a financial return on their initial investment.Premier League side Tottenham are believed to be leading the charge at the present, to seal a deal for him, however the North London side would prefer an initial loan deal until the end of the current season.However such a deal would to include an option to buy at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, but if that clause is binding, it my cause Spurs to back out as they want to see how he adapts to the demands of the Premier League.Barcelona will want to see something more concrete Soccer Jerseys Wholesale , as they may not want him back if he struggles in the Premier League.Negotiations are continuing between the two clubs, with the clock ticking on the January transfer window.Whatever between now and the end of the month, he player himself will be seeking assurances over his playing time for the remainder of the season, whether he stays in Spain, or eventually makes the move to England.He has started just one La Liga game so far this season, alongside a handful of cameo appearances from the bench Cheap Australia Soccer Shirts , with five appearances in the Copa del Rey and Champions League combined – including a first goal for the club away at Inter Milan.If he remains at the Nou Camp, Dembele looks set to stay ahead of him in the pecking order, with international compatriot Philippe Coutinho unlikely to be sold, despite speculative reports linking him with a switch to Manchester United.However, given the fact that he will be ineligble for Tottenham in the Champions League knockout stages, Mauricio Pochettino and the club’s board will be seeking a deal sweetener from Barcelona’s end – likely to be the Catalan side paying the majority of his wages.

Could the Green Bay Packers give up on DeShone Kizer already as Aaron Rodgers’ backup? That’s one of the questions head coach Matt LaFleur will have to answer as he and general manager Brian Gutekunst examine the roster in preparation for free agency and the draft.Kizer clearly has some skills given he was a second round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2017 Womens Blake Martinez Jersey , but he has shown little development in his two professional seasons. That much is obvious given his terrible performance in the Packers’ 31-0 loss to conclude the 2018 season. Given that the Packers’ hopes ride on Rodgers staying healthy, shouldn’t the Packers invest in at least a competent veteran backup? Teams like the Philadelphia Eagles and even the Chicago Bears stayed afloat this season thanks to Nick Foles and Chase Daniel’s solid performances when their starters went down.The Packers also could spend an earlier pick on a quarterback in the draft but then they might have to wait for that pick to develop as well and Kizer has shown nothing that the NFL game has slowed down for him so that option should be out.

The Colts head to Jacksonville for round two against the Jaguars in a game that finds the Jags disheveled and reeling from organizational changes http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-denico-autry-jersey , suspensions, and injuries. While it seems like a game the Colts should almost certainly win, it is a really important one as the Colts work to make the playoffs. It can’t be taken lightly. I reached out to Ryan O’Bleness of Big Cat Country again to get his perspective on a few questions heading into this game.This has been a crazy week for the Jaguars as an organization with the firing of OC Nathaniel Hackett, the benching of Blake Bortles, and the suspension of Leonard Fournette. What should we expect to see from this Jaguars’ offense? The Jaguars -- as both a team and an organization -- are in shambles right now. I have to imagine that all of this turmoil bodes well for the Colts. In addition to all of that, the Jaguars also put prized free agent left guard Andrew Norwell on IR this week, and Jalen Ramsey may miss his first game ever with a knee issue. I really don’t know what to expect from this team, and struggle to talk myself into ways it will even be competitive on Sunday. Cody Kessler will draw the start for Blake Bortles, which is a necessary, but an uninspiring change. Quarterbacks coach Scott Milanovich will take over play-calling and interim offensive coordinator duties. Most of his coaching experience, which includes being both an OC and a head coach, comes from the Canadian Football League. He also played quarterback in the NFL. Carlos Hyde and TJ Yeldon are fine replacement options for Fournette, but they’re not Fournette. I wouldn’t expect the Jaguars to completely differ from what they’ve been doing this season -- running the ball and using quick, shallow crossing routes and some playaction Skai Moore Jersey , but perhaps there will be a few more wrinkles and concepts added in moving forward, but the fact of the matter is that the Jaguars just don’t have the offensive pieces to make any drastic improvements, and that’s due to both injuries and poor roster construction on that side of the ball. I would expect a pretty conservative game plan to try to get Kessler comfortable. In the last matchup between the Colts and Jaguars, the defense seemed out of sorts in the first half and then clamped down on the Colts in the second half. How do you anticipate this defense attacking the Colts offense if they want to find success? That game was a bit out of the norm for the Jacksonville defense. The Jaguars are normally very strong against the pass and not as stout against the rush, but in the first meeting with the Colts, the Jags pretty much shut down the running game, but were carved up by Andrew Luck and Eric Ebron, particularly in the first half. According to Jalen Ramsey, there were some communications issues in the secondary, which caused a lot of the breakdowns. So, whether Ramsey plays or not, that is obviously something that can’t happen again. Then the Jaguars will obviously need to pay better attention to Eric Ebron and make sure there is a body on him at all times. If Jacksonville can shut down the run again, effectively communicate with each other, take away Hilton and Ebron and not only get pressure on Andrew Luck Authentic Anthony Walker Jersey , but actually finish the play with a sack, then they’ll be in good position. Generating turnovers is a must, also. That probably sounds simple and obvious, but the Jags must get back to the basics of their core identity on defense. If you are the defensive coordinator and you have to choose between shutting down T.Y. Hilton or Eric Ebron as a major threat in the upcoming game, who are you planning most for? I am still game-planning against Hilton, however, I know better than to let Ebron roam around free. If Ramsey plays, I would probably shadow Hilton with him, and if he doesn’t I would be confident in A.J. Bouye’s ability to do the same. Ramsey is the more physical cornerback who can press Hilton and has better speed, but Bouye is still probably a top-10 cornerback himself and can handle his own. As for Ebron, I am keeping the speedy Telvin Smith on him -- although he didn’t have the best game in Week 10 -- and I am having him play physical off of Ebron’s release to try to mess up the timing of his route. Another option would be to play the “Big Nickel” package and bring in a third safety, likely rookie Ronnie Harrison, to cover him. The Jaguars have had their struggles playing zone defense this season, so I am not sure that would be the answer. But to answer your question Youth Kenny Moore Jersey , Hilton is the bigger concern to me -- especially with the way that Luck is playing this season. The Jaguars got a ton of yards after the catch against the Colts in the first game and Bortles had a really excellent throw to Donte Moncrief for a big touchdown as well. Is Cody Kessler capable of airing it out like that or will the Jaguars be stuck taking the short throws and trying to turn them into big gains? I think the jury is still out on Kessler because he has such a limited sample size (248 passes in three seasons), but based off of what we know of him, my answer is no. His career long is 44 yards and that was a catch-and-run by Isaiah Crowell. He’s not a player that is going to drive the ball down the field, and as I said earlier I expect the Jaguars to have a pretty conservative game plan with Kessler where the team runs the ball a lot and tries to get the ball out of his hands quickly. I read a good article that came from your site actually, breaking down what we’re likely to get from Kessler. Maybe we will be surprised, but I would expect a lot more of the “dink and dunk” offense.With a season that has inexplicably gone very differently than expected, what is the move that the Jaguars have to make this offseason to right the ship? It 100 percent needs to be quarterback. Whether Kessler is a viable option or not remains to be seen, and perhaps he can be a bridge quarterback for a rookie who needs to develop next year, such as Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins. Or perhaps Kessler is not the answer at all, and the Jaguars sign a veteran signal caller in free agency, but the problem with that is it’s looking like a very underwhelming group. Getting into coaching staff and personnel, the Jaguars have to find a good fit at offensive coordinator and one that can keep up with the trends of the modern NFL, while a lot of fans would like to see the team move on from general manager Dave Caldwell. The Jags will obviously need to make a splash there if that’s the case as well. If the struggles continue, defensive coordinator Todd Wash may find himself out of a job soon http://www.coltsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-quenton-nelson-jersey , too. Colts head coach Frank Reich said after Sunday’s 20-16 loss to the Eagles that he tabbed Jacoby Brissett to throw a Hail Mary at the end of the game because he had the arm to get the ball to the end zone from Colts territory.That obviously means he didn’t feel Andrew Luck had the arm to get the ball there and Luck doesn’t disagree with Reich’s read. Luck said during his postgame press conference that Brissett “has a stronger arm than I do” and had “no problems” with the decision to put him into the game. Luck was asked if he thought he could have made that throw before his right shoulder injury.“I don鈥檛 know,” Luck said. “I was never in a situation to go out there and do it. I think in this situation, to be honest, I don鈥檛 know if I could go out there and do it to run around and scramble, step foot in the ground, and try to chuck it.”Luck was also asked about a game plan that seemed to emphasize shorter throws, as evidenced by his average of four yards per attempt over the course of the afternoon.“We had [deep] shots in the game plan,” Luck said. “You saw us open it up, especially in the second half. I think it never comes down to one thing, per se. I don鈥檛 think I was necessarily throwing it that well early in the game, and then settled into a rhythm. [Colts WR] Ryan Grant made a heck of a touchdown catch early, and that certainly helped me feel in a bit of a rhythm. There are a lot of factors. You can鈥檛 start a game against a good front four just dropping back seven steps and heaving it up.”Reich chalked up the lack of deep throws to the Eagles defense and said “it would have been reckless” to push throws in that scenario. The result was a shortage of points and more losses will likely follow if the Colts can’t figure out a way to open up defenses in the weeks to come.

As the 6-1 Chiefs try for their sixth-straight win over AFC West opponent the Denver Broncos (3-4) Tyreek Hill Jersey , head coach Vance Joseph took time to speak with Chiefs media at practice this past week. Here’s what he had to say: On Tyreek’s Hill’s abilities and how to stop him:Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports“He is a freakish athlete, he can run and jump, but just natural ball skills,” Joseph said. “A lot of little guys have a real problem finishing down the field in traffic. Tyreek Hill and Antonio Brown those two guys, as I’ve watched film over the years, are really good at finishing down the field. It’s just his natural, physical ability and his explosiveness to jump and catch the ball at the highest point.”“When you’re facing a guy like him you have to challenge him and have your safeties overlap to erase some of the deep balls,” Joseph continued when discussing the keys to stopping his “freakish” speed. “When you watch most of his deep balls, he is really outrunning the corner and outrunning the safeties. So, if that happens it’s going to be a long day for us. But our safeties will do a great job of having great angles to him and having enough depth to overlap his speed.”On difficulty defending the Chiefs offense: Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports“It’s unique because it looks different with every personnel group,” Joseph said. “It’s really three different offenses to prepare for and once you add coach [Andy] Reid and coach [Eric] Bieniemy’s tricks Dustin Colquitt Jersey , the jet motions, the reverses and all of those shuffle passes — all of those elements make it really tough because now it becomes assignment football and not just one-on-one football.”On defending a versatile Travis Kelce:Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports“He’s a matchup nightmare. He’s probably too fast for every linebacker in the league and he’s probably too big for most of the safeties. So, what you have to do is when he’s out of the core you treat him as a wide receiver that way you can play top-down coverage because again, if you don’t he’ll make a big play we’ve experience that before in the past leaving him one on one with our safeties and losing down on the field multiple times.”On preparing for Patrick Mahomes (again): Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports“Your plan has to be to trap and contain him and keep him where you want him to be but you have no plan for when he breaks the pocket,” Joseph said about Mahomes’ offensive prowess. “He’s outrun most of our big guys and he’s shaken off most of our pass rushers, but [you have] to grind and get him on the ground as quick as possible.“Most young quarterbacks, when they break the pocket, bad things happen. For him, his eyes are down the field, he’s not looking to run, he’s looking to throw the ball downfield. He understands the pressures of when he breaks the pocket that he can do damage. Most young guys when they break the pocket Cheap Travis Kelce Jersey , they’re looking to run the football and gain four or five yards and then slide, he’s not. He’s trying to stay behind the line and make a big play downfield. And the problem with this guy, he can throw the ball across his body moving left or moving right so how do you combat that?

Report: Bears http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-kyle-fuller-jersey , Roquan Smith agree on helmet issue; behavioral clause the holdup now The Chicago Bears and 2018 first-round pick Roquan Smith have yet to come to terms on Smith’s rookie contract. The speculation in recent weeks has been that the two sides have disagreed on how to handle the rookie’s guaranteed money if he were to be suspended as a result of the NFL’s new helmet-leading rules. Now the lone draft pick to not have signed his rookie deal, Smith has missed training camp time and, more than likely, playing time in the preseason as a result.If a recent report is any indication, though, the new rules are not the issue that the sides are butting heads on.David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune wrote in an article on Wednesday that the Bears have in fact agreed to leave Smith’s guaranteed money alone if he were to be suspended for an illegal tackle. Now, the issue at hand relates to the rookie’s off-the-field behavior. His agency, CAA Football now wants to ensure that his contract shields him from any discipline that may potentially result from off-the-field issues.Haugh had this to say on the issue:As made evident by the new issue - as well as the discussions regarding the new helmet rule - CAA is aiming to make sure that their client is able to maintain as much of his contract as possible. The Bears Youth Aaron Lynch Jersey , though, are afraid that giving in to such demands would make it the norm for players and agents to order for certain luxuries. As Haugh mentioned in his article, such an act is uncommon around the league today:The idea that Chicago and CAA were past the helmet-related issues was first proposed by Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times in Wednesday’s episode of the Hoge and Jahns podcast. Jahns did not state the new reasoning for the stalemate, but was the first to allude that guaranteed money was no longer the issue.Smith is projected to be a starter at inside linebacker for the Bears alongside Danny Trevathan upon signing his contract. With frustrations among the team’s fanbase escalating by the day, one can only hope that that signing occurs sooner rather than later.Jacob Infante is a Chicago Bears writer at SB Nation’s Windy City Gridiron. He is also an NFL Draft writer at USA Today SMG’s Draft Wire. He can be reached through Twitter @jacobinfante24 or emailed at jacobinfante1208@gmail.com. I see you rolled your way into the semi’s. Dios mio, man. Unfortunately, the Peanut Punchers did not. Once again, I am knocked out in the first round of the playoffs in the WCG league - this time to a late Monday Night Football comeback on the TD from Chris Carson to lose by 2 points.A couple of bad starts contributed to my demise as I went with Courtland Sutton over Tyler Boyd and started Jeff Wilson Jr. over the Kansas City backs. But you can’t think like that - you set your lineup with whatever information is at your disposal and you let the chips fall where they may. I’ve got two teams left in the hunt for a championship. One of the important pieces of playoff fantasy football came into sharp focus for one of those teams last night. I had planned to start Melvin Gordon and Spencer Ware Youth Prince Amukamara Jersey , but injuries to both players forced me to go to the bench. Unfortunately, I only protected Gordon with Justin Jackson and did not find a spot on the virtual bench for Damien Williams. While Jackson salvaged his night with a 4th quarter TD (and a better throw from Rivers would’ve given him a 2nd), Williams was the big winner in the random running back sweepstakes. Hopefully you benefited from his big night. Additionally, if you had the gall to start Mike Williams for the Chargers, you took all of Keenan Allen’s points and profited. Well done.The playoffs can be extra stressful if you let it get to you. My advice to you for the next week and half would be as follows:If you haven’t already, handcuff your running backs with their backups unless you’ve got a good running back in reserve. Damien Williams showed us why.Grab your defense for week 16 if it’s not on your roster already.In fact, if there’s a good defense out there - grab it anyway to play keep-away from your opponent.Set your lineup with what YOU think is the right combination of players. Don’t rely on everyone else’s opinion because in the end, you have to own it.But if you need help Youth Eddie Goldman Jersey , we’re here to offer free advice - but remember, you get what you pay for.Finally, once you set your lineup, walk away. Don’t follow the scores in real time. Either watch some real football games or go do something else with your day. Stressing about the playoffs isn’t worth it.Good luck!If you do want any advice or want to complain about getting Williams’ed by Damien and Mike, hit up the comments or find me on Twitter @gridironborn

“If you can’t beat them Youth Jamaal Williams Jersey , join them.”That seems to be the approach the Green Bay Packers took when selecting Matt LaFleur to be the team’s next head coach.A year ago Green Bay’s arch rival Chicago Bears hired Matt Nagy off of Andy Reid’s staff in Kansas City despite limited experience in calling plays and paired him with respected defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.The results? A 12-4 record and a curb stomping of the NFC North. The Packers are obviously hoping for similar success with LaFleur in 2019. He’ll have more talent on offense than Nagy did and by retaining defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, whose defense did show promise this season before a tsunami of injuries finally took its toll, LaFleur can focus on fixing the offense and getting quarterback Aaron Rodgers back to elite level.Pettine clearly has the respect of his players and can command the defensive meeting room. If there were any doubt about that, team president Mark Murphy and general manager Brian Gutekunst would not have been as keen on keeping him around.There is of course risk with this. Mimicking the path of a first year head coach whose team flamed out in the wild card round isn’t idea, but given the worst-to-first turnaround the Bears experienced clearly the Packers felt good about their chances. The difference of course being they picked a candidate from the Shanahan tree versus the Reid tree when Chicago picked Nagy.Nobody knows for certain how well this will work out for Green Bay, but we’ll get our first look at LaFleur in green and gold today at 3 p.m. central time at his introductory press conference.Kept it here at APC for love coverage of LaFleur’s debut as Packers head coach.There’s plenty more on LaFleur and what challenges he faces in today’s cheese curds.Packers following Bears’ formula pairing rookie coach with respected defensive coordinator—PackersNews.comThere will be plenty of fan angst about following the road the Bears took, but you can’t argue with the results. The Packers/Bears rivalry is about to get a lot more fun.Five things to know about Matt LaFleur—Packers.comGet to know your new head coach with this quick breakdown of LaFleur’s experience and get excited about what he can bring to Green Bay.Here’s what Packers’ pending head coach hire of Matt LaFleur means for NFL coaching cycle and Aaron Rodgers—Yahoo! SportsChallenging Rodgers while not trying to usurp authority from the personnel department likely was big draw of LaFleur’s to the Packers given Josh McDaniels’ and Adam Gase’s previous head coaching stints.New Packers coach Matt LaFleur must get Aaron Rodgers to buy into his program—Wisconsin State JournalThe above is the biggest question facing this hire and we won’t know the results until several months from now. That said, the excuses are gone for Rodgers. He now has a young, aggressive GM and a young Youth Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , innovative head coach. It’s now time for him to earn his contract.Ex-Packers coach Mike McCarthy is reportedly only interested in one open coaching job—CBS SportsLooks like it’s New York or nothing for the former Packers coach. Should McCarthy not land the Jets job, he likely will take the year off and look for a job in 2020. Over the next two weeks, Acme Packing Company will break down each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provide insight into how they performed during the 2018 season. Today, we examine the inside linebackers.The Green Bay Packers never received the opportunity to see their full linebacking corps play in defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s scheme. Veteran Jake Ryan suffered a torn ACL -- the second such injury since 2013 -- during the first week of training camp. The ruptured ligament ended his season and forced the team into a heavier linebacker rotation throughout the season.With Ryan’s rookie contract expiring, the Packers have to make a decision on whether to bring back the dependable-if-unspectacular linebacker or allow him to depart, creating opportunities for younger players.Jake RyanNFL experience: Four yearsFree-agent status: UnrestrictedExpiring contract: Four-year, $3.9 million ($456,676 guaranteed)2018 stats: None (injured)Ryan appeared in many games for the Packers over his four-year career, but he never developed into a centerpiece of the defense. Ryan’s run defense made him a useful player in Dom Capers scheme www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com , though opposing offenses exploited his weaknesses in pass coverage when possible. By 2017, Blake Martinez had surpassed Ryan as the team’s featured off-ball linebacker. That likely would have continued under Pettine who took over as defensive coordinator last offseason.Because of Pettine’ creativity, a larger linebacker like Ryan could serve the team well should he re-sign. The Packers rotated linebackers throughout 2018, using the run-focused Antonio Morrison and box safeties in various sub packages to attack the offense. Ryan could also offer valuable depth should something happen to Martinez, who wears the radio helmet on game days.At the same time, the Packers didn’t trade up to select Burks in the third round to let him ride the bench. A preseason shoulder injury and inexperience hampered him throughout 2018, but linebackers often take the leap during their sophomore campaigns. Clearing a path for Burks and Green Bay’s other young defenders might make more football and financial sense than bringing back Ryan.

Clayton Geathers moving towards return against Baltimore Ravens Clayton Geathers has been making progress during training camp http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/nate-hairston-jersey , and the Indianapolis Colts have been patient while he works his way back from a knee injury. It looks like the patience is paying off. With a second straight offseason spent in the training room, Geathers is on track to make his preseason debut against the Baltimore Ravens, barring any setbacks. “Hopefully, hopefully,” Geathers said via Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star. “I feel like it’s going well. If that day come, if I’m up, I’m up.”This is great news for the Indianapolis defense, which lacks playmakers at the moment. With a defense that is looking for players to step up, the Colts can afford to be diligent with the talented defensive back. Geathers should not play until his body is 100 percent ready to go, along with his head. One year ago, while making his way back from a neck injury, he admitted to playing timid at times. “It was limited, it was really just getting a feel,” Geathers said. “At times, I was a little scared. I was scared ... just being back, that’s a serious injury. Just going back, I was fine with it, felt good, no problems. That really gave me some clarity.”As it sits Authentic Quincy Wilson Jersey , with Geathers and Malik Hooker — who tore his ACL — making their journey back as starters, the Colts have holes in the secondary. TJ Green and Mathias Farley have garnered most of the snaps while Geathers and Hooker are out. In years past, Farley has served as a serviceable backup, but Green — who was drafted as a potential star in the making — has yet to live up to expectations. The return of Geathers, and Hooker for that matter, is important in its own right due to the fact Indianapolis has yet to find a star edge rusher to get after the quarterback — which means the Colts must find other ways on the defensive of the ball to generate big plays. With that in mind, Colts head coach Frank Reich is like the rest of the fanbase: Hopeful. “I think we’re hoping he’ll be ready,” Reich said. “I think a lot of it comes down to a confidence, and a lot of it comes down to the player. When a guy’s ready and healthy, sometimes there’s just that last emotional step of, ‘Hey, I’m ready to out there and go full speed for 20 plays or whatever it is.’”Grading Andrew Luck vs the Baltimore Ravens Andrew Luck’s second game did not go as smoothly as his first, but every rep he takes is a step in the right direction. Below are breakdowns on each of Luck’s 13 official pass attempts. A video link to all his throws is embedded below. 1st Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass to Chester Rogers (Short)The first throw to Rogers wasn’t terrible, but it probably wasn’t the right decision. During Luck’s five step-drop, he stares down Rogers the entire way and tries to force it into a tight window. The throw is slightly off the mark and Rogers isn’t able to adjust properly. Had Luck taken his time (he had a nice pocket to work with), he would’ve realized that Jack Doyle was the much safer, smarter throw to make.2nd Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass to Chester Rogers (Short)This was a fantastic call by the defense. The Ravens effectively blitzed Luck by stunting the weak-side 3 technique defensive tackle and the running back wasn’t able to recognize the stunt and make the block. When Luck attempts to step up in the pocket, he realizes that the unblocked defender is barreling down the middle. Luck makes the wrong decision by forcing a throw off his back foot. Tough to blame Luck, so this play should be chalked up to a great defensive play call by the Ravens.3rd Passing Attempt — Pass Intercepted - Intended for Jack DoyleThis entire play is ugly from start to finish. Luck initially cheats his drop by not crossing over properly. After he starts to roll out Womens Anthony Walker Jersey , he decides to try to force a pass to Jack Doyle who was short of the end-zone but past the first down marker. This was an extremely tight throw that was not worth making in the 1st quarter of a game. In this situation, he must take his medicine, throw the ball away and take his three points. Turnovers in the red-zone are a killer and this turnover ended up costing the Colts the game (as they lost by 1).4th Passing Attempt — 16 Yard Completion to Jack DoyleThis was a great bounce-back play. The play action was sold nicely, he gets his lower body into position nicely and fires a strike to Doyle in the right position. He gets a nice amount of velocity on the pass and it’s placed perfectly. 5th Passing Attempt —Incomplete Pass to Ryan Grant (Deep)The decision wasn’t bad, even though he was slightly late on the throw (you don’t want to make back shoulder passes too far down the field and with the safety screaming over the top). The pass sailed on him a bit, due to his shoulder elevating when throwing the pass (his shoulders should be parallel to the ground on these types of throws). When the shoulder elevates, the pass usually sails and that’s what happens here. In short, it was a good decision, but the pass sailed.6th Passing Attempt — 16 Yard Completion to Jack DoyleThis was probably his best pass of the game. He takes a very nice 5-step drop, recognizes the pressure from the outside, steps up nicely in the pocket and fires a strike to Doyle into a small window. He gets a lot of velocity on the pass thanks to him stepping up in the pocket and he did all of this on 3rd and 12. 7th Passing Attempt — 4 Yard Completion to Josh FergusonThis was a smart checkdown throw that Luck needs to make more often. He makes his read down the field, sees no one is open and then takes what the defense gives him. He fires a good pass and Ferguson picks up 4 yards. 8th Passing Attempt — 8 Yard Completion to Chester RogersLuck had two good options on this play: Rogers and Doyle. This is a quick hitter passing play, so he takes a quick drop, makes a read and hits the receiver quickly. He makes a nice throw and gets the easy first down. When Luck makes these easy reads and throws, it’s very tough to stop this Colts offense. As a side note, Rogers runs a fantastic route here and is able to separate from the cornerback. 9th Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass to Jack Doyle (Short)This is another quick hitter type throw, where the coaches expect Luck to make a pre-snap read and stick with that read. Doyle is the guy here, and Luck throws a nice sharp pass in a tight window, but Doyle drops it. This is a smart play-call on 2nd down and it was a good decision and pass by Luck.10th Passing Attempt — Incomplete Pass to Ryan Grant (Short)Luck does a very good job on his 5-step drop and he reads the field well. Most of his options were taken Authentic Darius Leonard Jersey , so while his pass was 5 yards short of the line of scrimmage, it was probably his best bet for a 1st down. He makes a good pass to a receiver crossing the field, but Grant drops the ball and the Colts are forced to punt. This was Luck’s receivers second dropped pass of the game.11th Passing Attempt — 1 Yard Completion to Eric EbronLuck takes a 7-step drop here, but just as he’s taking his last step he already has pressure in his face and he’s forced to throw to the drag route run by Eric Ebron. Luck makes the smart, safe throw on 2nd down but isn’t rewarded as Ebron is able to do nothing with the catch and is tackled immediately.12th Passing Attempt — Incomplete (Throw Away) Pass to Darrell Daniels (Short)The throw-away was the smart decision, but Luck needs to sense the pressure up the middle earlier and rollout to buy more time. 13th Passing Attempt — 5 Yard Completion to Eric EbronLuck again makes the smart, quick read to Ebron on a crossing route. The pass is on the money, but Ebron is able to do nothing with the pass after it’s caught. This was a well thrown pass by Luck.OverallIt’s tough to grade Luck when his top receiver, TY Hilton, didn’t even play the game and he played with a bunch of receivers who didn’t run very good routes. Luck wasn’t on the money with many of his throws and made some poor decisions, but it isn’t anything alarming, especially considering it’s only his second game back. Every rep he takes in a game situation is a positive and will only help him moving forward. I find the coaching staff has done a very good job easing him back into playing. He’s getting meaningful reps in games and participating fully in practices. With two more preseason games, including the 3rd game where he should see the entire first half, Luck will have one more good outing before suiting up for real. The 4th preseason game is almost always saved for backups and reserves fighting for roster spots, but I’ll be curious to see if the Colts give him a drive in the game.

Chiefs vs. Chargers: Making sense of snap counts The Kansas City Chiefs deafened the Los Angeles Chargers Womens Terrance Smith Jersey , 38-28, in game one of the 2018 season on Sunday.Here were the snap counts for the Chiefs:OffenseDefenseSpecial teams (only)Starters (offense): WR Tyreek Hill, LT Eric Fisher, LG Cam Erving, C Mitch Morse, RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, RT Mitch Schwartz, TE Travis Kelce, WR Sammy Watkins, WR Chris Conley, QB Patrick Mahomes, RB Starters (defense): RDE Chris Jones, NT Xavier Williams, LDE Allen Bailey, LOLB Justin Houston, LILB Anthony Hitchens, RILB Reggie Ragland, ROLB Dee Ford, RCB Steve Nelson Authentic Justin Houston Jersey , S Eric Murray, S Ron Parker, LCB Kendall FullerActive, but did not play: QB Chad HenneInactive: S Eric Berry, RB Darrel Williams, CB Charvarius Ward, C Andrew Reiter, G Kahlil McKenzie, G Ike Boettger, DT Justin HamiltonTakeaways (in no particular order)Sammy Watkins was on the field 91 percent (51 plays) of the time for the Chiefs offense. He was targeted by Patrick Mahomes five times and made three catches for 21 yards.By comparison, Tyreek Hill was on the field 71 percent of the time (40 plays). He was targeted by Mahomes eight times and made seven catches for 169 yards and two touchdowns.The running back split was as follows: Kareem Hunt - 40 plays, Spencer Ware - 9 plays, Damien Williams - 5 plays. The Chiefs are more comfortable with Hunt as a pass protector this year. Wide receiver Chris Conley was on the field more than I thought he would be—he had 35 snaps (62 percent of plays). The four players who make up the Chiefs’ base secondary—cornerbacks Kendall Fuller and Steve Nelson and safeties Ron Parker and Eric Murray—saw 100 percent of defensive snaps on Sunday. Our pal Orlando Scandrick saw 68 snaps (83 percent of the time).Rookie outside linebacker Breeland Speaks has probably surpassed Tanoh Kpassagnon in the eyes of the coaching staff. He out-snapped Kpassagnon, 19-10.The Chiefs are still easing inside linebacker Reggie Ragland back into the mix. He only had 42 snaps (51 percent) compared to Anthony Hitchens’ 78. The Chiefs had a little bit of a rotation going on their defensive line.It looks like your four-phase special teams guys are fullback Anthony Sherman (80 percent) and newcomer, safety Jordan Lucas (80 percent). Linebacker Ben Niemann played in 63 percent of special-teams snaps before he got hurt. For the first time this season, the Kansas City Chiefs will be wearing their all-red uniforms as they take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium.Also for the first time this season, they’ll be trying to rebound from a loss — last week’s Sunday night game against the New England Patriots.Here are five things to watch during the game:1. Irresistible forces against movable objectsIn their six games so far, the Chiefs have played three of the NFL’s top 10 teams in points scored, and three of the NFL’s top 10 in yardage gained. Is that because these teams played against a terrible Chiefs defense Womens Cameron Erving Jersey , is it that the Chiefs defense has had the misfortune to play a lot of games against really good offenses?That isn’t likely to become any clearer as a result of this game.In many ways, the Chiefs and Bengals are alike.All things considered, both have strong offenses and weak defenses.The Chiefs have the edge on offense, and the Bengals have the edge on defense.Both teams score on a high percentage of their drives.So it’s very likely this will be an exciting, high-scoring game — and those kinds of games often depend on the turnover battle.This means that much will depend on Patrick Mahomes’ ability to avoid interceptions.Andy Dalton has thrown seven picks to Mahomes’ four in six games.If that ratio holds, this would be an advantage for the Chiefs.But beware: the Bengals have three fourth-quarter comebacks this season.In two of those games, they outscored their opponents by 17 or more points in the fourth quarter.The good news for the Chiefs is that both of those games happened at home.Still... don’t count the Bengals out until the final gun has sounded.2. Playing the slowdown gamePhoto by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesIn four of their six games, the Chiefs defense has been on the field for significantly more snaps than the offense. This is one of the reasons —although certainly not the only one — the defensive unit has given up so many yards.In three of these games — against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots — the vast majority of the difference took place in the fourth quarter.Why?Because the Chiefs — in all but one instance, holding the lead — have played the so-called “prevent” defense, allowing the trailing team to gain yardage with underneath passes, but denying them big plays to score quickly.Essentially, this approach trades yards for time — and if your team holds the lead in the fourth quarter, time is the more valuable commodity.Fans hate the prevent defense, because they believe it gives the opponent too much of a chance to win the game.But coaches do it for one simple reason: because most of the time, it works — if the offense is also playing to take time off the clock.And this is the area where the Chiefs have been deficient.Late in their games, they have been unable to demonstrate an ability to run short plays — either by running the ball, or executing the short, high-percentage passes that are the heart of the West Coast offense — to secure first downs and extend drives.Last Sunday night Authentic Kareem Hunt Jersey , this inability led to the biggest strategic blunder of the season: giving Tom Brady the ball in a tie game with three minutes remaining on the clock.It’s perfectly reasonable to criticize Bob Sutton for leaving Josh Shaw one on one with Rob Gronkowski on the Patriots final drive, but let’s be honest: who would bet against Brady (and Bill Belichick) in that situation — even if they were facing the best defense in the NFL?The Chiefs must figure out a way to grind it out on offense and sustain their fourth-quarter drives.Against the Bengals — as previously noted — this could be especially important.But the Bengals also present an opportunity, as they are not particularly good against the run.Will the Chiefs take advantage of the opportunity, and let the offense learn how to help the defense?3. It’s not just A.J. GreenPhoto by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesAs we noted in this week’s Five questions with the enemy, while the Bengals do not possess the kind of receiving corps that the Chiefs have fielded this year, neither are they one-dimensional at wide receiver. The Chiefs will have to limit both their star wide receiver A.J. Green and third-year wideout Tyler Boyd, who has 455 yards and four touchdowns on 37 receptions this year.The Chiefs, however, should not have to worry too much about receivers coming out of the backfield. Bengals running backs have only 208 yards on 31 receptions this season. Nor have Bengals tight ends posed a huge threat thus far, combining for 386 yards on 34 receptions.The problem is going to be Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard as rushers. At this writing, it’s unclear if Bernard will play against the Chiefs, but Mixon could easily be a threat against the Kansas City run defense. As The AP Nerd Squad’s Matt Lane noted in his review of Chiefs inside linebackers, the Bengals may be able to what other teams have done — exploit the difficulties the Chiefs are having getting their act together, and come up big in the running game.4. Rushing the passerPhoto by Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesAgain in this week’s Five questions with the enemy, Cincy’s Jungle’s Patrick Judis expressed concern about the right side of the Bengals offensive line — guard Alex Redmond and tackle Bobby Hart — and his worry isn’t unfounded.The Chiefs may find enough of a weakness on the right side of the Bengals line to consistently apply pressure to Dalton — and under pressure is where Dalton is least effective.But the Chiefs are going to have to do it without blitzing, because Dalton is pretty good at making defenses pay when they blitz.So just like last week, the Chiefs interior defensive linemen are going to have to do their jobs well.Going the other way, the Chiefs are going to have to pay close attention to Geno Atkins on the interior, and Carlos Dunlap on the edge.These guys are good Authentic Mitch Morse Jersey , combining for 10 sacks this season.The Chiefs offensive line has only allowed six, but the Bengals will be a tough test.The good news is that last week’s quick fix to Mitch Morse leaving the Patriots game with a concussion — moving Jordan Devey to center and bringing Andrew Wylie to right guard — worked out all right.At this writing, it appears Morse will not return this week, so Devey and Wylie will have a big task before them.One more note for the Chiefs offense: should Mahomes try to scramble for a first down, will someone please make absolutely sure Vontaze Burfict is nowhere near him?Thanks.5. Mahomes-field advantagePhoto by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesIt appears likely that Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard will not play on Sunday night.Not only did he not practice on Thursday, but also on Thursday, the Bengals waived wide receiver Auden Tate to make room to move KeiVarae Russell from their practice squad to the active roster.Russell is expected to play on Sunday.Russell, of course, is a familiar name to Chiefs fans.He entered the league as a third-round pick for the Chiefs in 2016, and has been with the Bengals the last two seasons.Replacing Tate — a seventh-round pick this year — with a practice squad cornerback is a pretty clear sign the Bengals don’t expect Dennard to be available on Sunday.And it’s possible that safety Shawn Williams will not play, either.Williams is recovering from a concussion, and while he did not practice on Wednesday, he was only limited on Thursday.This may provide Patrick Mahomes with some opportunities in front of the home crowd.Mahomes has already passed for more yards — 2149 — than any other modern-era quarterback through his first seven games.With four touchdown passes on Sunday, he would eclipse the mark of 21 set by Kurt Warner through eight games.With a really big game, it’s also possible he could exceed Warner’s passer rating of 121.9 through eight career games.

The Chicago Bears are going back to London again this season Chicago Bears T-Shirt , this time to face the Raiders at either Wembley Stadium or Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium. We won’t know the date or the location until the league’s schedule is set in April.The NFL announced all of the international games for 2019 this morning, Monday, January 21, 2019. Four of the games will be held in the UK, while a fifth is slated for Mexico. According to the information released by the NFL, “The quality of the 2019 international offering is apparent in three division games and five playoff participants, including the NFC Champion Los Angeles Rams. Two of the four London Games will feature teams playing in the UK for the first time, while Mexico City will host a meeting of long-time AFC West division rivals.”The 2019 international games: In the UK, the other games are Tampa Bay hosting Carolina, Jacksonville hosting Houston and the LA Rams hosting the Bengals. In Mexico, The LA Chargers will host Kansas City.Assuming the turfmonster doesn’t eat the 2019 game like it did in 2018, Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium will host a matchup between the AFC West rival Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers. Both teams Chicago Bears Hats , who finished the 2018 regular season with identical 12-4 records, will be playing in Mexico City for the first time.Of course Kansas City fans, many of whom bought non-refundable flights to Mexico City for 2018’s later-relocated game against the LA Rams, are not happy about the news they get to go to Mexico this year.According to the NFL, the AFC South champion Houston Texans – who face the division-rival Jacksonville Jaguars – and the Carolina Panthers – who face their NFC South foes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – will both make their London debuts. It will bring the total number of NFL teams to have played in the UK to 31 in 28 regular-season games by the end of the 2019 season. The Jaguars will be playing a home game in London for the seventh consecutive season.The Rams, who will face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII, will host a London game for the fourth time when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals, while the Oakland Raiders will return to London for the second straight year, facing the NFC North division champion Chicago Bears.The information states that the NFL will play two games at Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, with two at Wembley Stadium.Dates, kickoff times and venues for all international games will be announced in conjunction with the release of the full NFL schedule this spring. Josh Rosen trotted onto the field in the fourth quarter to a rousing ovation. Arizona Cardinals fans, tired of watching their team's offense sputter for most of three games Chicago Bears Hoodie , were thrilled to see the rookie quarterback finally get his shot.The hopes of a winning drive rose with a couple of quick completed passes. Seconds later, those aspirations were dashed with the same kind of mistake that put the Cardinals behind in the first place.Thrust into a difficult position, Rosen failed to lead Arizona's beleaguered offense to a comeback, throwing an interception on his fifth NFL pass in the Cardinals' 16-14 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday."I guess you could say I'm kind of content that I got to get out there and sort of understand and get the feel of a real NFL game, but I definitely could play a lot better," Rosen said. "I'm looking forward to getting better in the weeks to come."Rosen's chances to get better 鈥?at least in a live game 鈥?could come quickly.Sam Bradford was expected to give Arizona a smooth transition in place of the retired Carson Palmer and serve as a mentor to Rosen, the Cardinals' quarterback of the future. Signed to a two-year, $20 million contract in the offseason, Bradford has turned in three uninspiring performances with the Cardinals (0-3), racking up turnovers while Arizona's offense has bogged down.First-year Cardinals coach Steve Wilks stuck by his starter following the first two games, but brought in Rosen after Bradford opened the second half with two interceptions and a fumble. Rosen threw one interception and had a pick-6 negated by a Chicago offside penalty, but may have shown his coach enough in limited time to earn the start against Seattle next week."We're going to evaluate Josh as well as Sam Customized Chicago Bears Jerseys ," Wilks said. "We're going to watch the tape and see exactly what I want to do as far as moving forward with that."Bradford was good early against the Bears, throwing two touchdown passes as Arizona (0-3) jumped to a 14-0 lead with its first opening-half points of the season. Then the offense bogged down, followed by the turnovers.Bradford was 4 for 5 for 92 yards in the first quarter, completing two passes of at least 30 yards 鈥?Arizona's two longest of the season. The Cardinals bumbled around on offense after that, managing 30 combined yards on 22 plays in the second and third quarters.Bradford threw interceptions on the Cardinals' first two drives of the second half as the Bears clawed back. A third turnover, a fumble, came early in the fourth quarter after Arizona reached Chicago's 23 with a chance to extend a one-point lead.Bradford's final turnover led to Cody Parkey's third field goal, from 43 yards, that put the Bears up 16-14 and the Cardinals in need of an offensive spark."Obviously disappointed in the turnovers," said Bradford, who finished with 157 yards on 13 of 19 passes. "I felt like I put our team in a bad spot the second half today."Rosen, the 10th overall pick of this year's draft www.authenticschicagobears.com , completed his first three passes to move Arizona near midfield, but underthrew Christian Kirk along the sideline and was intercepted by Bryce Callahan.Arizona's defense held, giving the ball back to Rosen and the offense with 43 seconds, rekindling hope of a miracle comeback. It fell flat instead.Rosen dodged one big mistake when the interception return for a touchdown was called back on a penalty, but the Cardinals' last-ditch effort ended when he was sacked before he could attempt a pass."I thought he looked pretty good, inconsistent in the end," Wilks said.The Cardinals could use some consistency at this point.

TOKYO (AP) — The Seibu Lions will begin the posting process for left-handed pitcher Yusei Kikuchi on Dec. 3 so that he can negotiate with teams in Major League Baseball.The posting period begins on Dec. 5 http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-mccarthy-jersey , and Kikuchi will have 30 days to sign a contract with a major league team. The Lions would then receive a posting fee based on the dollar amount of the pitcher’s contract. If he fails to reach a deal within 30 days, he remains with the Lions.Kikuchi attended a Seibu team event on Friday and told reporters the posting process would begin on Dec. 3.Since Kikuchi cannot file for international free agency until 2020, he needed Seibu’s approval in order to use the posting system to move to the majors.Kikuchi has a 73-46 career record with a 2.77 ERA in Nippon Professional Baseball. He went 14-4 this year and struck out 153 batters in 163-2/3 innings.All postings by NPB teams must occur between Nov. 1 and Dec. 5, with a 30-day negotiating window to follow.Under the posting system, a Japanese team posting a player to the majors will receive a fee based on an agreed percentage of the value of the contract, bonuses and incentives.The fee will be 20 percent of the first $25 million of a major league contract, including earned bonuses and options. The percentage drops to 17.5 percent of the next $25 million and 15 percent of any amount over $50 million. Manny Machado is settling in nicely with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and there's an excellent chance he can be the piece the team needed to remain in front of the National League West through the regular season. Perhaps the ex-Baltimore Oriole's presence will be enough to get the Dodgers back to the World Series once again.Other trades will likely be executed before the July 31 deadline Ender Inciarte Jersey , and the Orioles could be involved in more of them, and it would not be a shock if the New York Yankees become a trade partner.Teams usually don't like to trade within their own division, but it appears the O's are multiple seasons away from contender status, so they might not mind making a deal with one of their traditional rivals.As strong as the New York bullpen appears on paper, there have to be a number of concerns with left-hander Aroldis Chapman. He had a disastrous performance Saturday against the New York Mets in which he could not retire a batter with a big lead in the ninth inning, and if he had not been rescued by Chasen Shreve, the Yankees could have allowed a sure victory to turn into an embarrassing loss.But even if Chapman was performing better, the Yankees would still have an interest in Oriole reliever Zach Britton. When Britton is on his game http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-ramirez-jersey , his power sinker is a nearly unhittable pitch.According to MLB Network'sJon Heyman, the Yankees are one of seven teams with interest in bringing Britton aboard.The other teams include the Atlanta Braves, Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs, Houston Astros and Dodgers are all involved in the possible transaction. Heyman also tweeted that other teams could also pursue Britton.Britton has a 1-0 record with a 3.45 earned-run average and four saves in his 16 appearances since his Achilles injury kept him out in the first part of the year.General manager Brian Cashman is never going to be satisfied with his roster until the Yankees bring home another World Series title, and since they are five games behind the Red Sox in the American League East, there is much to do.The changes on the roster could come in the form of J.A. Happ of the Toronto Blue Jays or Cole Hamels of the Texas Rangers.Happ or Hamels could fill the role of a No. 4 or 5 starter Ronald Acuna Jr. Jersey , but the key is the price the Yankees will have to pay to pick up one of the two pitchers.Neither pitcher would require the Yankees to give up a top prospect like pitcher Justus Sheffield or center fielder Estevan Florial, according to Andy Martino of SNY.tv. Instead, it would most likely require the Yankees to give up a solid minor leaguer.That still may be too high a price for the Yankees at this point.However, as the trade deadline comes closer, Cashman may have to change his assessment if the Bronx Bombers are going to complete a deal for starting pitching depth.

Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox still have five games left in the 2018 MLB regular season Matt Adams Jersey , yet president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski is already lining up the team's starting rotation for the playoffs.Dombrowski said Tuesday on MLB Network Radio that left-hander Chris Sale will start the opening contest of the American League Division Series, which is scheduled for Oct. 5:MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM MLBNetworkRadioDave Dombrowski isnt waiting on an opponent or a press conference to announce Chris Sale as the #RedSox Game 1 starter of the #ALDS#DirtyWater wDKo9kSOl0Sale is the obvious choice to open the playoffs for the Red Sox. He's12-4 with a 2.00 ERA in 26 starts http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-kevin-long-jersey , and his 13.4 strikeouts per nine innings are acareer high.However, persistentshoulder problemslimited Sale to one August start http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-joaquin-benoit-jersey , and he has thrown141 total pitchessince returning to the mound in a 7-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sept. 11.Dombrowski said Tuesday the Red Sox will have Sale start Wednesday's game against the Orioles, and that the seven-time All-Star will"stretch out again to 90ish-type pitches" to help him get readjusted to a full workload.The difference between winning and losing a five-game playoff series can be thin. In 2016 Ryan Zimmerman Jersey , two of the Red Sox's three ALDS playoff defeats were decided by one run.Sale was never a doubt to pitch in the playoffs, but having him in Game 1 of the ALDS will be a nice boost for Boston as it looks to advance to the American League Championship Series for the first time since 2013. ARLINGTON http://www.nationalsfanproshop.com/authentic-jayson-werth-jersey , Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers are bringing back reliever Matt Bush with a minor league contract as the right-hander recovers from elbow surgery.Texas said Monday it has agreed to minor league deals with Bush, pitchers Zac Curtis and Tim Dillard and infielder Chase d’Arnaud. They will report to major league spring training.Bush isn’t expected to be ready until the second half of the season after surgery in September to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.The 32-year-old made the last of his 21 appearances for Texas last season on June 14. Bush had no record with a 4.70 ERA and became a free agent when the Rangers didn’t offer a contract by the Nov. 20 deadline.The No. 1 overall pick as an infielder out of high school by San Diego in 2004 Bryce Harper Jersey , Bush finally made it to the big leagues as a hard-throwing reliever for the Rangers in 2016. He is 10-6 with a 3.35 ERA and 138 strikeouts in 137 innings over parts of three seasons.

Al Bello/Getty ImagesIt was just a couple of weeks ago that New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman was named to his fifth All-Star team Evan Longoria Jersey , but playing in the Bronx means he lives in a "What have you done for me lately?" world.If he didn't know that before this weekend, he certainly does now.Chapman entered Saturday's game against the New York Mets with a four-run lead in the ninth. He faced a total of five batters, throwing 19 pitches, with only three finding the strike zone. His final line? 0.0 innings pitched, one hit, three walks, one hit by pitch and three runs allowed. That ugly outing led to him getting booed off the mound.For as many strikeouts as the hard-throwing southpaw piles up Andrew McCutchen Jersey , he has always been prone to wildness. He has walked 4.0 batters per nine frames in his career and now has 19 in 40 innings this season.Chapman pulled out of Tuesday's All-Star game due to tendinitis in his left knee. Rather than blame the injury for his struggles, the 30-year-old called it "just a bad day," via the Yes Network:After all, he entered the day with a 1.35 ERA, a 0.825 WHIP and 26 saves in 27 opportunities. He had not allowed a run since July 1.As a result of his latest outing, his earned run average ballooned above 2.00 (2.03, to be exact) for the first time since April.Fortunately for Chapman http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-tony-watson-jersey ,Chasen Shreve was able to come in and save the day for the Yankees on Saturday, closing the door on a 7-6 victory. That helped minimize the impact of the rough outing.Yankees manager Aaron Boone will need to keep an eye on Chapman for the time being. While it was only an exhibition that the reliever missed because of the knee injury, this was his first outing of the second half. If the Yankees are going to raise banner No. 28, having their shutdown closer healthy and effective will be key.New York (63-34) currently sits five games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East, but it also has an 8.5-game lead in the wild-card race. That means the Yankees could take a cautious approach if it means getting Chapman healthy, should his struggles continue. NEW YORK (AP) — Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Urena has been suspended six games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally hitting Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves with a pitch.Major League Baseball announced the penalties Thursday, a day after Urena hit Acuna on the left arm with his first pitch in the Marlins’ 5-2 loss in Atlanta. The 20-year-old Acuna went into the game having homered in five straight games Gregor Blanco Jersey , including four homers in the three games against Miami — three of them leading off.The 25-year-old Urena, from the Dominican Republic, is 3-12 with a 4.74 ERA in 24 starts. Unless appealed, the suspension is scheduled to begin Friday at Washington.Also, Braves first base coach Eric Young was suspended one game and fined.Acuna was back in the lineup for the Braves on Thursday night against Colorado. The training staff signed off on Acuna returning after a CT scan on his elbow was normal. X-rays also were negative.

Dylan Buell/Getty ImagesMilwaukee Brewers reliever Josh Hader apologized Tuesday for racist http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-grimm-jersey , homophobic and misogynistic tweets that dated back to his time in high school."As a child I was immature," Hader said following Tuesday's All-Star Game, according to the Wall Street Journal's Jared Diamond. "I said some things that are inexcusable. There's no excuse.""I'm ready for any consequences," he added.Ryan Fagan ryanfaganJosh Hader addresses the tweets that surfaced during the game Zzh6uS2frHHader's account was set to private shortly after the tweets circulated during the All-Star Game.According to Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan, the news spread quickly to his family members in attendance at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.:Jeff Passan JeffPassanSome members of Josh Hader鈥檚 family, wearing his All-Star replica jersey, have taken them off and been given generic jerseys without his name on the back.Hader, who allowed four hits and a three-run home run in 0.1 innings of work, now faces potential discipline from Major League Baseball.MLB Chief Legal Officer Dan Halem told reporters the league will consider releasing a statement on Wednesday Burch Smith Jersey , according to the Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin."The situation is what it is," Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain said, per the Washington Post's Jorge Castillo. "I know Hader. He's a great guy. I know he's a great teammate. I'm fine. Everybody will be OK. We'll move on from it." MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Mitch Garver didn’t have time for any warmup swings, summoned as an injury replacement for Minnesota in the fourth inning.After two strikes by Oakland starter Trevor Cahill, that’s when Garver found his groove.With a two-run, pinch-hit double by Garver , the Twins overtook Cahill on their way to a 6-4 victory Thursday night that gave the Athletics consecutive losses for only the second time in more than two months.“It’s the hardest thing to do in any sport, come into a baseball game and pinch hit cold off the rack,” said Garver, who’d never before faced Cahill.Even still Blaine Boyer Jersey , Garver gave the Twins a 4-2 lead with his big hit after catcher Bobby Wilson sprained his right ankle backing up first base in the top of the inning.The A’s haven’t been cold all summer, so they’ll face a mild test in trying to recover. Having lost Wednesday afternoon to last-place Texas, Oakland dropped 1½ games behind AL West-leading Houston. The A’s are four games ahead of Seattle for the second wild card.“They don’t really worry about what happened the day before,” Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. “We’ve been on a nice little roll. When they take the field, no matter who we’re playing or who we’re starting, they feel like we’re going to win.”The A’s are 42-16 since June 16. Their only other losing streak since the turnaround began that day was a three-game sweep by Colorado from July 27-29.“Use it as motivation,” catcher Jonathan Lucroy said. “I don’t think there’s any other way to take it.”Joe Mauer drove in Garver with a single that tied him with Rod Carew for second on the club’s career hits list. It was Minnesota’s fourth straight hit against Cahill (5-3), who took his first defeat since May 16.The A’s lost with Cahill on the mound for the first time since June 2. He spent most of June and part of July on the disabled list.“They’ve got a tough lineup over there, and they put together some good at-bats,” Cahill said. “Sometimes you’ve got to tip your cap. They made me work.”Khris Davis moved into the major league lead with his 39th home run Trevor Cahill Jersey , a no-doubt drive to start the second inning against Twins starter Kohl Stewart, who lasted until the fifth. Stewart threw two wild pitches that contributed to A’s runs, one in the fifth that allowed Matt Chapman to chug home.Alan Busenitz (4-0), the first of five Twins relievers, gave up a single to Marcus Semien later in that inning that Eddie Rosario fielded in shallow left field. Rosario threw out Matt Olson trying to score from second to end the inning with the Twins leading 5-3, with an assist to Garver for disguising the arrival of the ball.Trevor Hildenberger shook off Jed Lowrie’s two-out homer in the ninth to finish his fourth save in as many opportunities since closer Fernando Rodney was traded to the A’s two weeks ago.“It’s kind of the mystery ‘pen,” Twins manager Paul Molitor said. “You don’t really know when you’re going to pitch.”Not so much for the A’s, who’ve bolstered an already strong bullpen for the stretch run.The last sign this wasn’t their night came in the eighth when All-Star closer Blake Treinen, who had not allowed a home run over his previous 58 innings since Justin Upton connected April 6 for the Angels, was taken deep by Max Kepler. Treinen had pitched 12 scoreless innings since July 21.DINGERS FOR DAVISDavis hit his fifth home run in the last five games. That put him within one of becoming only the second player in A’s history to go deep 40 or more times in three straight years and joining Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx Melky Cabrera Jersey , who did so from 1932-34 when the franchise was located in Philadelphia. Mark McGwire (1987, 1992, 1996) is the only other A’s player with three 40-homer seasons.MAUER MILESTONEMauer, who has 2,085 career hits, trails all-time Twins leader Kirby Puckett by 219. Carew, who amassed 3,053 career hits after playing his final seven years with the Angels, spent 12 seasons with the Twins, like Puckett. This is Mauer’s 15th year with the club. Mauer is also one run short of becoming the third Twins player since the franchise arrived in Minnesota in 1961 to reach 1 http://www.angelsfanproshop.com/authentic-zack-cozart-jersey ,000 runs with the team.TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: LF Matt Joyce, on the DL with a lower back strain for a second time this season, will play every other day on his rehab assignment as a precaution.Twins: 3B Miguel Sano, rested for the second time in 25 games since returning from his reconditioning assignment in the minor leagues, is in an 0-for-14 slide.UP NEXTAthletics: LHP Sean Manaea (11-9, 3.70 ERA) pitches Friday night against the Twins. He gave up six runs over four innings in his last start, a loss at Houston that marked the first time in 14 turns he’d allowed more than three runs.Twins: RHP Jake Odorizzi (5-7, 4.55) takes the mound in the second game of the series. He has logged only 18 2/3 innings over four starts in August.

1. New Orleans Saints:The Saints just dismantled the reining Super Bowl Champs! I’m talking hot knife slicing through butter! They made them look like the chumps who fall for the “I bet I know where you got dem shoes?” level of dumb. The Saints have got to be on a historic pace these last few weeks with scoring. And not only that Isaac Yiadom Color Rush Jersey , how ‘bout that defense?2. Los Angeles Rams:Holy 54 points Batman! Their Monday Night Football game against the Chiefs shows just how potent of an offense they have. But it left me questioning their defense? How can you give up 51 points? I get it, 2 strip sacks from Aaron Donald, but still, 51 points is embarrassing by this team considering the Chiefs scored 57 in two combined games against Denver. Remember Denver? The team their current Defensive Coordinator use to coach? The team who lost all their dogs? Yeah, that team. 3. Kansas City Chiefs:Usually 51 points is enough, but not last night. Did anyone else, and I don’t care what team you root for, but did anyone else watch the Chiefs v Rams and say “Oh man, I wish we had Patrick Mahomes?” And I’m talking even Packer fans should be saying that! And yes, I realize he had 3 INTs and 2 strip sacks from Donald. Those things happen. But six touchdowns and so many clutch “how did he do that” plays? Yeah, can we hire Andy Reid to be our draft day guru when picking QBs please? 4. Pittsburgh Steelers:Snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. If anyone thinks this team will fold tent and pack it in when they’re having an off day better think again.5. New England Patriots:What better way to exit your bye week than playing the Jets?6. Chicago Bears:These guys are looking down right scary at this point in the season. They got some offense and defense and just keep churning out victories. I’m not saying they’ll do much in January, but the safe money is that they are playing in January.7. Los Angeles Chargers:As predicted, this would be a close game. I had it as a 1 point Chargers victory, but Rivers River’d it up and threw the game away. And this is why he’ll retire without a ring, and why there are always more Broncos fans at their home games than Chargers fans.8. Carolina Panthers:I’ll admit, usually I love when teams go for the win, but when they lined up for the two point conversion, I was all “huh, I’d take the tie”... and that shows just how bad of a call it was.9. Baltimore Ravens:For those asking about Lamar Jackson and his 27 rushes. I think the Ravens know that isn’t sustainable and that’s fine with them as they will get Flacco back. I also think it shows that they know that he’ll have the ball on 100% of the snaps, and his route tree and anticipation and reading coverages just isn’t where it needs to be yet, so instead of throwing it a lot, they limited it and took his other pass attempts and just had him run with it. It at least kept the Bengals honest, unlike other backup QBs who simply hand the ball off 80% of the time.10. Houston Texans:My God J.J. Watt!!! Other things happened in this game Josey Jewell Jersey , but Joe Theismaning Alex Smith will be the image that is forever burned in our brains. Oh yeah, the Texans are also on a 7 game win streak. 11. Indianapolis Colts:Andrew Luck is looking like his old self and has his team riding a 4 game win streak. 200+ snaps without a sack. Is that right? Crazy!12. Minnesota Vikings:Hahahahaha wait... nope, hahahahahaha “You Like That?!?!?!” ... why yes, yes I do. Suck it Cousins!13. Seattle Seahawks:The Seahawks play everyone tough these days, and they may have gotten the Packers head coach fired after this game.14. Green Bay Packers:Aaron Rogers or Mike McCarthy, gee, I wonder which one the owner will choose to keep. Being at odds with your QB is one thing, but you gotta know your audience before you dig your heels in the sand against your megastar QB. You will lose this fight coach, how do you not see this?15. Cincinnati Bengals:Oh Cincy, what shall we do with you. You’re not all that horrible, but you clearly aren’t all that good either. You should be ashamed for letting Lamar Jackson run 27 times on you without a clear answer. 16. Denver Broncos:Like I’ve been saying for weeks now, the Broncos have a lot of talent, they just lack the coaching. That talent was on display, as was the faulty coaching that could have cost us. Either way, this is a team that’s not nearly as bad as their record indicates and are honestly a QB away from being a serious contender (which you can say for most teams, but I digress). We have the ingredients, we just need a really masterful chef to get them humming.17. Tennessee Titans:Titans did their best to remind their fans that the Colts are a notch above their league, just like when Peyton Manning was their QB.18. Miami Dolphins:The bye week is over... It’s time to underwhelm us all again.19. Washington Redskins:Why the ridiculous drop in the rankings? This tweet says it all. Makes my skin crawl. Reminded me of Theisman when I saw it.20. Philadelphia Eagles:While losing to the best team in the NFL is certainly expected, playing dead and curling up in the fetal position so maybe the Saints would quit playing is something else.21. Cleveland Browns:We shall see how they come out of their bye week with their brand new interim head coach.22. Jacksonville Jaguars:Just when you thought the Jags would pull off the upset and beat the Steelers, they proved that they’re still the Jaguars and nothing has really changed.23. Dallas Cowboys:The Cowboys are flying high with two wins in a row! They’ve made some splashes in trades, but they seem to be working. Plus they remembered that Elliot is a pretty decent weapon.24. Detroit Lions:Credit where credit is due. They beat a good team at home. Sure, they almost lost, but they didn’t. This goes down as a victory over the Panthers https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Daesean-Hamilton-Jersey , and the Lions need all the stepping stones they can get.25. Atlanta Falcons:I feel like I write the same thing about the Falcons every single week! They’re more up and down than a rollercoaster! When you think they’ll win, they’ll lose When you think they’ll lose they’ll win or lose. So screw it, they’ll just keep losing. Lets make this easy on ourselves. 26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:Wanna know what’s more impressive than scoring 35 points on the road? Not losing to the freaking Giants! That’s what!27. Buffalo Bills:Wanna know what will boost you up in rankings? Beating Jacksonville next week. So umm, don’t hold your breath.28. New York Jets:So many bye weeks. It’s almost as if the Jets have been on a bye most of the year.29. New York Giants:I stand corrected, you actually ARE trying to win games, which shows just how incompetent you really are.30. San Francisco 49ers:Keep building towards your future Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch. That’s about all you have at this moment.31. Oakland Raiders:The Raiders are so terrible they can’t even F up a tank job of a season properly. 32. Arizona Cardinals:Looks like the Cardinals want that #1 overall pick a touch more than the Raiders. The Denver Broncos (2-2) have a very winnable game on the road against the New York Jets (1-3), but their history on the east coast is one that should give us pause. Nothing ever comes easily in the NFL.Collectively, the Mile High Report staff thinks the Broncos win easily 26-16 over the Jets. Against a rookie quarterback like Sam Darnold, who has struggled, a veteran defense like Denver’s should be able to control the game defensively. So if they do that, then the Broncos would only need an efficient offensive performance to win this game by two plus scores.Here is how we each broke this game down individually.Broncos 27, Jets 13It feels like the issues on offense might be here to stay with the Broncos in 2018, but against a team like the Jets there is no reason two scores don’t win this game for Denver. It is a road game on the east coast, however, so I won’t take anything for granted in this one. - Tim LynchBroncos 27, Jets 20I think Royce Freeman & Philip Lindsay notch a rushing TD each, and Keenum finally gets back on the TD board with an endzone target to Courtland Sutton. Sanders will less in receptions & targets. However, I think Keenum also throws another pick.Meanwhile, the defense will face a group with little in the way of playmakers. The iffy secondary will still give up some big plays it shouldn’t, but I think this is the game the Broncos’ pass rush gets back on course. - Taylor KotheBroncos 24, Jets 21A tough game on the road, this is the win that gets the Broncos back on track for a play-contending season. Von Miller will show up and give the Jets’ rookie QB a nice “Welcome to the NFL” sack while Chris Harris Jr. will send him a pick-six welcome package. I expect Case Keenum to have an improved game, taking advantage of a weak Jets’ secondary and a prime Courtland Sutton. Life is back to good on Monday. - Laurie Lattimore-VolkmannBroncos 23 Case Keenum Color Rush Jersey , Jets 6This game is a hard one to predict. One one hand you have the Broncos playing an early game on the east coast on the road. On the other hand, Sam Darnold kinda sucks. Then again, we only scored 23 on a piss poor Chiefs defense AT HOME, and the Jets are at least “middle of the road” on defense (exactly middle as they rank 16th). So, how can I predict we score even the measly 23 we did against the Chiefs? Plus the finger pointing has begun with the “offense needs to score more points” talk. Ugh. What to do, what to do? How about we slap around a rookie QB the way everyone else slaps around rookie QBs? How about we don’t be the “typical Broncos” and be the poster children of career games for other teams and players? How about we try that on for size guys! - Pete BaronBroncos 29, Jets 13The Broncos are more talented than the Jets. The Broncos are a better team than the Jets. The Broncos are going to beat the Jets. It’s not hard. Run the ball. Let the rookies take over and they should have no problem. 29-13 Broncos. - Adam MalnatiJets 23, Broncos 20There is no doubt the Broncos should win this game. They should win this game rather easily. How many times have we said that the last two years, only to feel either anger or disappointment at the result? In Denver’s last six games played on the East Coast, it is 1-5. Overall, in the last nine road games, the Broncos are 1-8 and 4-13 in the last 17. It’s OK, I’ll be that one fan. - Ian St. ClairBroncos 31, Jets 9Last time the Broncos played the Jets, they shut them out, and that was with Trevor Siemian at the helm, and are facing a talented but turnover prone young QB in Sam Darnold. I expect this one to be as easy of a win Denver will have on their schedule this year, and will help fans get last week’s taste out of their mouths. Broncos 31 (with a defensive TD), Jets 9. - Jeff EssaryGive us your score predictions in the comments section below.

The football gods giveth and the football gods taketh away. Just hours after announcing the return of tight end Hunter Henry Russell Okung Color Rush Jersey , the Los Angeles Chargers received word that they would be shorthanded on their defense once again. Linebacker Jatavis Brown will be out for the remainder of the season due to an ankle injury. Entering his third season, Brown had seen his mix of highs and lows adjusting to the NFL. The former fourth-round draft selection collected 76 total tackles as a rookie back in 2016 and looked promising in coverage with six pass deflections. His second season was filled with mix reviews as he finished with 76 tackles but looked lost in coverage. Following the loss of middle linebacker Denzel Perryman, Brown began to split time between both inside and outside linebacker. Showing growth in the middle, Brown looked to possibly revitalize his stock before suffering an injury against the Broncos on Sunday. The Chargers linebacker room has taken its fair share of hits this season. Perryman was ruled out following an early knee injury against the Oakland Raiders while rookie linebacker Kyzir White has been out since Week 6 after having knee surgery. Los Angeles is expected to play Hayes Pullard in place of Brown for the remainder of the postseason. Brown’s injury is now the fourth season-ending story for the Los Angeles’ defense. Along with the pair of linebackers Junior Seau Color Rush Jersey , cornerback Jason Verrett suffered a torn Achilles during the team’s OTA while defensive tackle Corey Liuget suffered a knee injury during the team’s first matchup with Denver. Los Angeles is still in prime position to make a run in the playoffs thanks to their pass rush and their secondary success. The team currently ranks 19th with 38 total sacks and 15th in turnovers with 13 interceptions. While the loss of Brown does sting following his recent success, it’s not a nail in the coffin for Gus Bradley’s defense. Sure, the Bolts will have to play another man short, but the team finished with a 12-4 record even with multiple key injuries. The Ravens offense has looked great over the past two weeks Desmond King Color Rush Jersey , but a good game from Los Angeles’ pass rush could send Baltimore packing in front of their home crowd on Sunday afternoon. With half the season done, who do you hand the offensive player of the year award to right now?Michael Peterson: Melvin Gordon. Has increased his career YPC to 4.0 and has strung together 100-yard games for the first time in his career. On pace for 20 touchdowns and over 1600 yards.Jason Michaels: Philip Rivers can’t double dip. We’re going to give it to Melvin Gordon, who has officially taken off. He was serviceable in most games last year: really good then not. This year he is consistently very, very good.Ruben J. Gonzalez: We’ve have got to go ahead and give Melvin Gordon his props because he is running as free as he’s ever been. He’s not going to juke you in the open field Corey Liuget Color Rush Jersey , but his deceiving speed might allow him to scoot on by you. It’s taken him a few years for him (and the coaching staff) to figure it out, but he’s here now and its all for the best.Jake Hefner: Melvin Gordon - His game continues to get better. His versatility in both the run and pass game, gives so much flexibility to the offense. The Chargers are giving every opportunity to Gordon to get into space beat defenders down field. There’s no doubt he has become a game changer for this offense.Mike Murray: Mike Pouncey, his athleticism at the center spot is a huge factor in Melvin Gordon’s success. On many of the big Charger runs you will see Pouncey destroying someone at the second level to break them free.Jamie Hoyle: I think you could make the case here for Philip Dan Feeney Color Rush Jersey , Melvin Gordon and Mike Pouncey, but I’m going to go with Gordon. He is the lynchpin of the offense, as everything runs more efficiently when the offense runs through him. He’s been a lot of fun to watch this season.Lou Gorini: The offensive player of the year is every Chargers fan favorite player, Melvin Gordon. Gordon has been the solution to the Chargers red zone woes. He simply has a knack for finding the end zone. He has been a major contributor not only in the rushing game but the passing game as well. The Chargers finally put a competent offensive line in front of Gordon and he goes ahead and awards them with his highest YPC season ever at 5.4. He is the reason why Rivers has had a perfect passer rating on play action passes.Richard Wade: This has to go to Melvin Gordon. He is not just playing way better than he ever has before. He is one of the most productive Kyle Emanuel Color Rush Jersey , most efficient running backs in the entire National Football League. For years now, he has been productive when they threw him the ball. This year, he’s a monster in the passing game. Add to that his work as a runner and Gordon is putting up numbers we have not seen since LaDainian Tomlinson left.Who is your offensive player of the first half of the season?

The New England Patriots have started to create some separation between themselves and the Chicago Bears thanks to some great individual plays in all three phases of the game – two of which interceptions by the defense. First Dwayne Allen Color Rush Jersey , rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson was able to wrestle away the football for his second pick this season:On the very next defensive series, it was Jonathan Jones’ turn to come up with an interception – and it was a spectacular one-handed catch to turn the football over inside New England’s 5-yard line: Despite starting deep inside their own territory, the Patriots were able to march all the way down the field thanks in part to a big 55-yard catch-and-run by wide receiver Josh Gordon. The big play set up New England at the Bears’ 1-yard line – and on 2nd and goal, the team turned Jones’ interception into six points:The play counts as as touchdown pass from Tom Brady but essentially is a perfectly executed run from James White. If you expected any Patriot, much less Rob Gronkowski, to say anything about what their assignments are other than “we’re gonna execute the game plan”, you may be new here.Having said that Adam Butler Jersey , compared with some of the Mean Girls stuff going around in places like Pittsburgh and Jacksonville and Green Bay, the classic Patriot-speak is almost a blessing in disguise at this point. Think of it like a peanut butter sandwich or an old hoodie or something. It works, albeit sort of unspectacularly, so why change it?And now that we’ve at least tabled the Gronk-vs-Kelce debate for the time being, Gronk had some thoughts on the superior part of his game in that argument (that being, of course, the “end” part of the “tight end” position) and why he’s equally down with running up the seam or bench-pressing a defensive end.From PFT:PFT also notes Elandon Roberts Color Rush Jersey , in the “can’t make this stuff up” department, that even with Gronk’s slow-ish receiving start to the season, which will happen when teams are throwing triple-teams and just praying something works, he’s still on pace for...wait for it...69 receptions and 1,080 yards. To hit the yardage incentive part of his re-done contract, he needs 1,085 https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Devin-Mccourty-Jersey , and the catch incentive kicks in at 70 grabs, so file that under “when you’ve got somewhere to be at 6pm and the GPS says you’ll get there at 5:59”. The touchdown incentive looks a bit more “well, we got some work to do” at this point, since (you may have heard) he currently has one (1), and the performance trigger kicks in at 9 scores, but with the way this offense has looked since “what happens in Detroit stays in Detroit”, is anyone really betting against Gronk possibly scoring an average of once a week?On the other hand Phillip Dorsett Color Rush Jersey , if there was ever a time to have a pair of tight ends that are both down to stay home and push guys around, it’d be when the Patriots roll into Soldier Field this weekend to take on the Bears, who are suddenly back to looking a lot more like your dad’s Bears than whatever it was John Fox was doing.

The Cowboys will have two of their offensive weapons who earned questionable designations. Tight end Blake Jarwin and receiver Cole Beasley passed pregame workouts https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Aaron-Donald-Jersey , and both are active for tonight’s game against the Rams.Neither Jarwin nor Beasley practiced this week because of an ankle injury.Beasley had three receptions for 28 yards in last week’s wild-card playoff win over the Seahawks, and Jarwin caught three passes for 15 yards.Left guard Xavier Su'a-Filo also is active after missing last week’s game with an ankle injury, but rookie Connor Williams is expected to start.The Cowboys’ inactives are quarterback Mike White, safety Darian Thompson (groin), running back Darius Jackson John Sullivan Color Rush Jersey , linebacker Chris Covington, defensive lineman Dorance Armstrong, defensive tackle Daniel Ross and defensive lineman David Irving (ankle).The Rams enter the game healthy, and their inactive list includes no surprises. Defensive back Darious Williams, running back Justin Davis Todd Gurley Color Rush Jersey , outside linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, outside linebacker Trevon Young, offensive lineman Jamil Demby, defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day and defensive tackle Tanzel Smart will not dress. As if we needed any more to worry about, Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley picked up a knee injury in Week 15 in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport tweeted out recently though that Gurley is “on track” to play in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals:The big issue isn’t whether or not Gurley plays in a relatively meaningless game. Instead https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Nickell-Robey-Coleman-Jersey , it’s twofold: Does Gurley’s injury affect his ability to play at or near 100%?Does Gurley’s injury affect the playcalling and the confidence in his ability to perform?The answer to both mid-game last night was obviously yes to both. Moving forward, I’m not sure about either.After the game, Rams Head Coach Sean McVay said the following of the injury:And of its effect on the playcalling:As the Rams’ game is a standard Sunday afternoon game, the Rams will issue injury reports on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Denver Broncos strong-side linebacker Von Miller could be poised to have back to back AFC Defensive Player of the week honors when the Pittsburgh Steelers play in Denver. Right tackle Matt Feiler has been filling in for injured starter Marcus Gilbert https://www.steelerssportshop.com/Darrius-Heyward-Bey-Jersey , but both might be inactive today due to injuries. If Feiler is unable to suit up, rookie fourth-round pick Chuks Okorafor could see extensive action. Feiler is coming off his worst performance of the year when he gave up a sack and four QB pressures to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Whoever ends up getting the start will be tasked with slowing down Miller which is not an easy task. Miller is tied for fourth in the NFL with 10 sacks and is looking to bring home his seventh Pro Bowl selection in eight seasons. The Steelers may have to give extra help to the right tackle position, something that the team did not do much with Feiler during the last game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite Feiler struggling, he was predominantly left on an island with only a few chip blocks from running back James Conner and a solitary double team from right guard David DeCastro. Tight ends Jesse James and Vance McDonald combined for 48 snaps but neither were asked to help a struggling Feiler to block. In the video below is the three effective chip blocks from Conner and the double team from DeCastro. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin will have to be cognizant of how effective the right tackle spot is against Miller and make adjustments to keep quarterback Ben Roethlisberger upright. The effective use of Gilbert, tight end Heath Miller and running back DeAngelo Williams against Miller in the 2015 regular season game kept the Broncos star off the stat sheet with zero tackles or sacks. Hopefully, the coaching staff has looked back at that game to see how effective the use of the tight ends, running backs and double teams helped Gilbert keep Miller from Big Ben. Will the Steelers leave the right tackle out on an island Cameron Sutton Jersey , as they did most of last week? Or will the team realize that whoever is out there at right tackle will need the same help as Gilbert did in 2015? Steelers fans hope that the outcome will be the same as it was in in 2015 with another check mark in the win column. Hello BTSC Community!

Manchester United and the club's goalkeeper David De Gea are reportedly in a contractual standoff with the latter refusing to budge on his high wage demand.The Spanish shot stopper's current deal will expire at the end of the season and the Red Devils are said to be interested in offering him a long-term deal to keep him at the club after they triggered a one-year extension clause in November to prevent him talking to other clubs during the winter transfer window.According to UK outlet Mirror Cheap Belgium Soccer Jerseys , De Gea is prepared to commit his future to Manchester United albeit for the right price. As a result, the former Atletico Madrid goalie is bent on becoming the club's second-highest earner with a salary of 拢350,000 per week. Currently, Alexis Sanchez tops the wages list with 拢400,000-a-week.Nonetheless, United is reportedly hesitant to meet the demands of Spaniard although the club remains confident of brokering a deal in the near future.The arrival of interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given the English outfit a general facelift and one of such is the club's ability to keep hold of its stars.聽In recent times, the likes of Anthony Martial, Phil Jones, and Ashley Young have all been handed new contracts, hinting at the club's keenness to keep its core members in the rebuilding process. LONDON (AP) — At Qatar’s embassy in London Cheap Brazil Soccer Jerseys , a screening of the Asian Cup final used a feed from the country’s sports network. Qataris in the rest of Britain had to give money to betting companies to view the nation win its first major soccer title.The Asian Football Confederation sold its broadcast rights to betting companies who offered digital streams for a tournament being staged in a Muslim nation — the United Arab Emirates — that ended up with another — Qatar — contesting Friday’s final. Qatar beat Japan 3-1.Gambling is not permissible in Islam.When The Associated Press tried to sign up to Bet365, which shares family ownership with English second-tier soccer team Stoke, it required official identification to be uploaded, such as a passport, and at least 5 pounds ($6.50) to be deposited in an account. No one at Bet365, which streams soccer, horse racing and other sports daily, was available for comment about the religious implications.The rights deal in Britain was the result of a lack of interest from broadcasters and concerns from the AFC that streaming the tournament on YouTube would make it too easy for a feed to be pirated in regions where rights are valuable — particularly the Middle East.AFC spokesman Colin Gibson said “we have no idea about this” and added in a later email that the broadcast rights are sold by Lagardere Sports, not the AFC. Gibson declined to discuss the religious sensitives and how the deal is reconciled with an AFC code of conduct which states, “We do not take part in betting connected with football.”Lagardere Sports executive vice president of media Cheap Colombia Soccer Shirts , Nikolaus von Doetinchem, said the company acted as a broker between the AFC and the Perform Group on the betting company deals and said the streams were intended for existing account holders. Von Doetinchem said it was an “unfortunate situation” that Qataris, or other fans whose religion prohibits gambling, had to sign up to such services for the Asian Cup.“Normally you would have a licensee with a broadcaster, which in this case didn’t happen because we didn’t get any offers from a U.K. broadcaster,” von Doetinchem told The Associated Press by telephone. “Normally in markets when rights are not sold, they are put on a website and streamed for free, but in this case the probability that gets pirated by the Saudis is too high to risk it.”The AFC last month denounced the Saudi Arabia-backed pirate network beoutQ for the “persistent and illegal screening” of games for which Qatar’s beIN Sports owns the Middle East rights, including the Asian Cup. The theft of broadcast rights is a proxy fight in the 19-month political and economic boycott of Qatar by regional rivals, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.Although beIN Sports cannot be viewed in Britain Soccer Uniforms Wholesale , the Qatari embassy was showing that network’s feed at a screening attended by 2022 World Cup organizing head Hassan Al-Thawadi.While many club sides are sponsored by betting companies, it is unusual for a confederation to be in business with them. FIFA, which organizes the World Cup, said it doesn’t sell any rights to betting companies.“We sell platform neutral rights to media rights licensees,” FIFA told the AP. “All sublicense agreements are subject to FIFA approval, and there are no betting companies.”

It has been over a decade since the Cleveland Browns have had a winning season. For years they have been the bottom-dwellers of the National Football League. The number of coaches and starting quarterbacks over that period of time are almost too many to count.The players who have come and gone are innumerable. Moreover Domata Peko Color Rush Jersey , they haven’t beat the Denver Broncos in the their past eleven games dating back twenty-five years. But that could all change come Saturday night.It’s been tough being a Browns fan, something that most folks across Broncos Country can’t even comprehend. Our beloved Broncos are a team that has given the Browns an enormous amount of heartbreak over the years. The well-versed fans in Broncos’ lore know this all too well. But times they are a changing and it seems that the Browns are finally moving forward. Playoff chances are incredibly low for both franchises, with the Broncos’ chances hovering around five percent and the Browns even less than one percent. It’d take winning out and a whole lot of help for both teams to make it possible. Have no doubts, that the loser of Saturday’s battle will have their post-season dreams officially squashed. Let’s take a deeper look at who the Broncos will face at home on Saturday night.A glance at the Browns’ offenseThe last time the Browns sported an offense ranked in the top half of the league was the last time they had a winning season in 2007. Since then, their offensive production has been cataclysmic decade-long endeavor. One season removed from being one of the worst offenses in football the Browns have made quite a bit a progress. Their current league-wide rankings on offense goes as follows:Points per game: 18th (22.5) Total yards: 15th (359.4) Passing yards: 17th (239.2) Rushing yards: 14th (120.2)A lot of that has to do with the play of top pick Baker Mayfield. Since taking over for Tyrod Taylor the Browns’ offense appears to be doing much better. To date, the former Oklahoma product has completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,877 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. After years of waiting, it finally appears that the Browns finally have their franchise quarterback.Offseason acquisition Jarvis Landry has been his favorite target, who has 69 receptions for 790 yards and three touchdowns on the year. But Mayfield has been diligent in spreading the ball around Demarcus Walker Jersey , with tight end David Njoku and young receivers Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins also making an impact with him at the helm. With Mayfield leading the way, everyone is getting a slice of the pie and his ability to read defenses and find open targets has been very impressive for a rookie.Another reason for the Browns’ turnaround offensively has been because of rookie running back Nick Chubb. He has gained 760 yards on 144 rushing attempts and scored 8 touchdowns. The emergence of a formidable ground attack in Cleveland should bode well for them the remainder of the season and down the road. Versatile back Duke Johnson has also made his presence known, amassing nearly 500 all-purpose yards and averaging nearly 10 yards per reception out of the backfield.All signs are pointing up with respect to the Browns’ future on offense. They have their quarterback, running back and star wide receiver of the future. If they can continue to build on their offensive line an add another skill player or two for Mayfield to get involved, their offense has the chance to be good for quite some time.A glance at the Browns’ defenseWhile the Browns’ offense has improved demonstrably this season compared to last year, their defense has still struggled and is an overall mixed slate. They are second-to-last with respect to total and passing yards given up a game, but are also giving up 133 yards (28th) and 25.5 points (25th) per contest as well.What is interesting to observe is that despite the Browns’ issues above, they are third-best league-wide when it comes to interceptions and have 15 on the year. They unit has also forced 18 fumbles and recovered 13 of them. They are a defense that can cause a lot of havoc and force turnovers, which is why the Browns are +9 in turnover ratio on the season.Two players in particular really catch my eye on their defense. Defensive end Myles Garrett has continued his ascent to becoming one of the most feared pass rusher’s in the league and has 12.5 sacks thus far. His second-year running mate Larry Ogunjobi has been a force on the interior of the Browns’ defensive front and has 42 tackles and 4.5 sacks on the year. The Broncos’ offensive line is going to have to play a great game in order to stop those two from causing chaos up front.Keys to the gameHere are several keys to the game that members of the Mile High Report staff talked about earlier in the week. That being said, I agree one hundred percent with Ian St. Clair who had a great point to make. The Broncos need a lot more out of Case Keenum in the passing game. He needs to attack more down field and take some bigger risks. With first-round corner Denzel Ward out for Saturday’s game they should be able to take some bigger chances https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Chris-Harris-Jr-Jersey , but can’t allow a secondary that’s forced a lot of interceptions to get the best of him. Hart’s PredictionAs mentioned earlier, the loser of Saturday’s game will have their playoff hopes officially eliminated. I’m worried about the Broncos’ ability to defend against Mayfield and his arsenal of weapons which is greater than what Denver faced last weekend. Unless the Broncos can somehow embark on a miraculous turnaround to what we all witnessed a week ago, I don’t see much hope for them. As much as I’d like to see the Broncos win out and have a shot at the playoffs, I’m not confident they will be able to do so. It’s officially time to start thinking about the future.Browns 24, Broncos 20. September 17, 1990.Monday Night Football.Denver Broncos hosting the Kansas City Chiefs and its “Nigerian Nightmare.”Need I say more?Of course not. Because when a single football play has its own celebrated anniversary, you already know it was a special play.And if you’re any kind of Broncos fan - whether you watched it live or not - you know this play.It’s the play that could be used in every textbook to demonstrate Newton’s first law of motion: Every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force - aka, Steve Atwater.In fact, the “hit heard round the world” is so iconic that many people when they first meet the man behind it - Broncos safety Steve Atwater - often mention immediately, “oh Shaquil Barrett Color Rush Jersey , you’re the guy who hit Christian Okoye!” “It’s kinda cool,” Atwater admitted. “I would imagine it’s not as cool for Christian as it is for me, but...that’s what football is sometimes.”Atwater and his team mentor Dennis Smith had watched film on Okoye the week before the game, and Smith told the protog茅 that the key was to hit Okoye “straight up” in order to bring him down.“I saw the hole open, and I hit it full speed, and I believe Christian was running full speed too, and fortunately...ahhh...I got him!” Atwater recalled this past season. “Bam! I just kinda lowered the shoulder, and boom! That was it.”That was definitely it.Come to think of it...that hit is also the perfect example of Newton’s third law as well: “For every action (force) in nature, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

Hello everyone and welcome to a bye week edition of the BFTB Mailbag with yours truly. These things have been a blast so far and I find them to be the best way to interact with a lot of you guys who keep up with my ramblings and the blog Justin Jones Color Rush Jersey , itself. I just want to start this out by giving you all a heartfelt thank you for your support and cannot wait to see where the rest of the season takes us.It was a tight game in London this past weekend and, although the team came back stateside with a victory, their performance still didn’t sit well with me but I believe that’s just me needing to not think so hard about the performance that it sucks all the positivity out of it.A win is a win is a win and the team heads into a bye week with all the momentum in the world for a team not called the Chiefs or Rams.If history is any indication, the Chargers likely won’t make any moves prior to this year’s trade deadline.When wide receiver Dontrelle Inman was sent to the Chicago Bears last year for a sixth-round pick, it was the first time since 2007 that the team had made any such move. That year, the team sent a second-round pick to the Miami Dolphins for wide receiver Chris Chambers in a move that many felt was a large mistake for the Chargers.In my opinion, I don’t think there are any obvious players that the team would want to go after. The team is chugging along just fine without some of their best players and things should only get better following the bye week.Don’t expect the team to make any moves that could potentially halt the momentum of the team.At this point, after seeing who Addae wants to be this season and getting a better look at other players who have rotated in on the back end, I don’t even think Addae should be starting on this team.Derwin James is better at everything across the board than Addae. The unfortunate part of this situation is that if James is best around the line of scrimmage and in the box, Addae is left to handle duties as the single high safety. Through seven games, Addae has done nothing but miss tackles and assignments, leaving him no better than any other Joe Blow the team could throw back there.Adrian Phillips has emerged as one of the defenses most consistent playersover the last several weeks and deserves a chance to steal some reps away from Addae although Phillips is doing most of his work aligned as a middle linebacker in the team’s dime package.If Tyrell continues to blow up the way he has in recent weeks, I think it would be a crime to let him walk as a free agent. With Travis Benjamin slowly getting nudged out the door, a wide receiver trio of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Tyrell is incredibly intimidating. Allen is a top-3 route runner in the league, Mike Will possesses a rare blend of size and athletic-ability, and Tyrell adds a combination of length and speed that most defenders hope to never have to face.I’m not sure how long the Chargers will be able to retain all of the young talent they have acquired, but they should attempt to do everything possible to stave off that day for as long as they can.Well Kyzir White Color Rush Jersey , without exaggerating too much, after all of the games he has missed up to this point, I’m pretty much dead enough inside to not have to worry about finding a costume for Halloweeen!On a serious note, everyone knows how much of a fan I am of Forrest Lamp. I still remember sitting on a bench at a gym, sweaty and exhausted, when I got the news that Lamp tore his ACL during the first padded practice of 2017.I sat frozen on that bench for what seemed like forever. A single, manly tear was attempting to escape from my eye. All I could think about was how much time was going to have to pass before I ever got the chance to see #77 on the football field. At this point, all that time has come and gone but I still am unable to watch my favorite player from the 2017 NFL Draft play for this team.He’s healthy. He’s good to go. But this coaching staff is making him take the long route back to a starting position and until the wheels start to fall off in some facet, it doesn’t look like Lamp will make any starts this season for the Chargers.Oh, Jordan. You know damn well that Julio won’t get near five touchdowns so I’d be putting all my money on 2,000 receiving yards.I’ve never seen anything like this touchdown drought and I’m not sure what to really say about it. It almost looks like an inside job by Sarkisian and the staff. Most teams force the ball to much worse players than Julio when they are in the end zone so at this rate, how are they not solely chucking balls his way inside the twenty?I think the best case scenario is 12-4 if the team can come out victorious against the Steelers. A final record of 11-5 would be extremely ideal and obviously a 10-6 record is still an improvement from 9-7.The game against the Steelers, Ravens, Bengals are all tough draws with another match-up with the Chiefs and a pair of contests still left with the Broncos will all be under the microscope throughout the rest of the season.If any single player goes into the bye week healthy but finds their way onto the injury report, than I’ll consider it a loss. The bye week should be for nothing but getting players in top shape to finish out the season and anything to the contrary should give the team a giant L for the week off. The Chiefs won the toss and chose to defer. The Chargers receive the opening kickoff. Justin Jackson starts things off with a nice 4 yard carry. Second play Philip Rivers attempts to uncork one deep to a streaking Tyrell Williams, however pressure up the middle didn’t allow Rivers to step into it and winds up under throwing Tyrell for an interception.The Chiefs offense moved pretty well down the field. Chargers defense lost contain twice, first on a run and then a pass where they almost had Patrick Mahomes for a 15+ yard sack. Both plays turned into long first downs. The Chiefs eventually scored on a pass from Mahomes where basically any other QB would have thrown it away, but he somehow found an open man and got the score.LA’s second drive moved into Chiefs territory on a 22 yard pass to Antonio Gates. However they fizzled before they hit the Chiefs 40 as the Chargers line gave up a sack then a brutal QB hit on back to back plays. 0-2 on drives so far and the Chargers offensive line is getting dominated. The second Chiefs drive looked even easier. The Chargers defense got eaten up by RB screens. The Chiefs also practiced something with their snap count, they’ve drawn 2 offsides penalties on back to back drives Virgil Green Color Rush Jersey , this time 3 of the 4 Chargers linemen jumped in unison. Chiefs score on a long RB screen when the Chargers defense abandoned one whole side of the field and Jahleel Addae was too late getting back to make the stop outside of the end zone.The Chargers finally put a scoring drive together to answer the second Chiefs score. Rivers made some good passes, the OLine finally gave him some time, and they got bailed out by a few Chiefs penalties in the red zone. It took a few tries to get the score, Keenan Allen almost had an amazing catch, literally missed the touchdown by 2 inches trying to control the ball with one hand before he slid out of bounds. They finally got the score from a Rivers rainbow to the corner which Mike Williams, who is finally looking like a Receiver who’s going to be worth his draft position, went up and got it to bring down for the touchdown.Chargers special teams strikes again and gives up a huge return on the following kickoff allowing the Chiefs to start on the Chargers 49. The Chargers defense came up with their first 3rd down stop of the night to force a 3 and out. Special teams got bailed out again. Ekeler’s presence is missed more than on offense. He’s a hell of a coverage guy.Chargers drive the ball all the way down to the red zone again. Mike Williams is looking like a real number 1 today. He is making great catches and getting into perfect position. With just under a minute left, the drive ends on Rivers’ second int of the day in the corner of the end zone when Tyrell Williams couldn’t fight through traffic to get to the ball. Rivers has been getting drilled all game, I’m pretty sure he’s been sacked 4 times already and hit hard 4 or 5 more. He’s got happy feat at this point. Chiefs get the ball back with 40ish seconds left and can’t do anything but kill some time on the clock. Mahomes threw a very bad pass down the field, Adrian Phillips had great position for the INT, Jahleel Addae thought he had better position and jumped in front of Phillips. The ball hit him in the hands and he dropped it. Classic Addae.The Chargers got the ball back with less than 10 seconds, handed it off and went to the locker room. Somehow, only down by 1 score after getting pretty convincingly outplayed for most of the half.Halftime 14-7 ChiefsChiefs open the second half on offense. The drive appears to start well for the Chargers, Joey Bosa is able to lay vicious hits on Mahomes on back to back plays and Mahomes looked like he was complaining to the refs about it. Then he remembers he’s Pat Mahomes and drives the Chiefs down the field to score on a 3 yard run. Chiefs open up a 14 point lead. The Chargers take the next drive and March all the way down the field. Detrez Newsome is running extremely well. He is looking the same against the Chiefs starting D as he did against 2s, 3s and lower in the preseason. They get the ball into the end zone on a reverse to Mike Williams. It was a beautifully executed play. The blocking was fantastic and Mike Williams continued his coming out party by running through arm tackles and showing some burst and acceleration that I honestly didn’t think he was capable of. 21-14 ChiefsThe Chargers defense manned up on the next drive. Darius Philon forced a holding penalty on 1st down to set up 1st & 20. The chargers give up some yardage on 2nd down to set up 3rd & 4. Mahomes dumps it off underneath, 2 yards short of the 1st down to Travis Kelce. Then DROY Derwin James wrapped him up and manhandled him for no gain to force a punt. Great defensive series.The Chargers next drive wasn’t able to accomplish anything and almost ended in a third interception from Rivers.The Chiefs got the ball back and drove down the field aided by some bad Chargers Penalties, including a facemask on a 3rd down that would have forced a punt. They marched all the way down to the goal line on some chunk passes to Travis Kelce and some nice runs. The Chargers put up a momentary goal line stand, even denying Mahomes on a keeper from the 1, but eventually gave up the score. The Chiefs are back up to a 14 point lead Caleb Sturgis Color Rush Jersey , 28-14 Chiefs with just over 8 minutes left.The Chargers get the ball back and open the drive with a nice 14 yard pass to Tyrell Williams, then another 8 yarder to Tyrell, then a 14 yarder to Antonio Gates and they are already inside the Chiefs 40. Another chunk pass to Justin Jackson out of backfield and the Chargers are down inside the 25. Rivers connects with old man Gates again for another 1st down just outside the 10. A hard run from Detrez Newsome and a quick slant to Tyrell Williams puts the Chargers at 3rd and 3 from the 6. Rivers overthrows Mike Williams and it’s 4th and 3. Chargers have to go for it. Rivers cant connect with Tyrell Williams, but he was very blatantly held before the pass by Steven Nelson and the Chargers get 1st and goal from the 3. Justin Jackson follows his blockers perfectly, Russel Okung and Virgil Green made great blocks, Chargers TD. 28-21 Chiefs with 3:43 left in the game. Mahomes takes the field deeper than normal thanks to a block in the back on the kick return which puts the Chiefs on their own 11 yard line. Chargers D looks ready to go out and help the team win. 1st play Philon explodes through the line and drops the RB for a 3 yard loss. 3:37 left with the clock stopped as the Chargers use their 1st time out of the second half, 2nd and 13. Quick pass to Tyreek Hill for 5 yards, 3rd and 8. Chargers burn their 2nd time out to stop the clock at 3:30. Chiefs have a false start to push them back 5 yards, 3rd and 13 now. ISSAC ROCHELLE AND MELVIN INGRAM GET TO MAHOMES FOR THE SACK!!! 4th and 14 from their own 6, and the Chiefs punter is at the back of their own endzone. Dez King, in the scariest moment of the game yet, muffs the punt but recovers it himself at the Chargers 40. Rivers has 2:37, the 2 min warning and a TO to go 60 yards and score. The Drive starts out in the wrong direction on a holding penalty by Dan Feeney. Chris Jones has been abusing the Chargers Guards all night. Rivers drops back though and finds Travis Benjamin over the middle who somehow holds onto the ball after one of the most brutal hits I have seen in years that didn’t draw a flag. I didn’t see any helmet to helmet, honestly it looked pretty clean, but Benjamin got absolutely ROCKED by 2 Chiefs defenders. He’s earned a few weeks of not getting called scared of contact after that. Well done. Next play is incomplete to Travis Williams and the clock hits 1:59.2 Minute Warning.Rivers dumps it off to Just Jackson who barely catches the ball and because of it fails to escape to the sideline which gets them a 2 yard gain and keeps the clock moving. Next play is incomplete to Tyrell Williams. 4th and 8. RIVERS DOES IT! He finds Travis Benjamin over the middle again with just a beautiful throw. Such a tight window, 1st and goal from the 10!Rivers makes the right read and attempts to hit Justin Jackson out of the backfield but he under throws it and his the defender in the back. The next play Rivers has to tuck it and run and with his knee down he takes a HUGE helmet to helmet hit that doesn’t get called. The league is going to have to answer for that.3rd and goal. 13 seconds. The Chargers get a make-up call immediately as the Chiefs are called for pass interference in the end zone.1st and goal from the 1, 8 seconds left. CHARGERS TOUCHDOWN!!! RIVERS CONNECTS WITH MIKE WILLIAMS!!!The play is reviewed and stands as called. 27-28 Chiefs and Anthony Lynn rolls the dice to keep Rivers on the field and go for 2 and the win.The Chargers dial up the most beautiful play I’ve ever seen and Mike Williams and nobody within 15 yards of him. Rivers sees it and easy pass. CHARGERS LEAD 29-28 with 4 seconds left.Michael Badgely squibs the kickoff and the Chiefs are unable to do anything as the clock ticks to 0.THE CHARGERS WIN IN KC!!!!RIVERS FOR PRESIDENT!!! ANTHONY LYNN FOR PRESIDENT!!! MIKE WILLIAMS FOR PRESIDENT!!!

The New England Patriots were absolutely James Harrison Jersey , positively expected to beat the Tennessee Titans in week 10, but fell flat on their face before going into their bye week. Can they get back on track against the New York Jets?All signs point to yes, but games in New York are always tough. Ever since Rex Ryan took over the Jets in 2009- and even as he’s out of the league- the Patriots have met their match on the road.Think about this: New England is 9-1 against the Jets at home (with a disappointing 2010 divisional round defeat) with an average score of 29.3-15.9. That’s an extremely comfortable margin.On the road, the Patriots are a mere 5-4, with an average score of 24.3-20.6. If you feel like the Patriots and Jets have a game every season that comes down to a last-minute stand by the New England defense, you wouldn’t be too off base.So while the Patriots should theoretically win this game with ease Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey , count on it being much, much more difficult. Alec and Rich cover it all. This podcast is available in the iTunes store, Stitcher, TuneIn, BluBrry, Podcast Mirror and via RSS Feed. Please subscribe and comment on what you want to hear about in future podcasts! The New England Patriots pulled away from the New York Jets in the second half and won comfortably with a final score of 27-13. Here’s our instant analysis from the game.Tom Brady is obviously injured Jeremy Hill Color Rush Jersey , but he can still do enough to winBrady entered the week with a bad left knee as the result of his disastrous catch attempt versus the Tennessee Titans. He bruised his right knee and his right throwing hand this week:Hopefully these are short-term issues because Brady’s accuracy was clearly an issue in the immediate wake of the hand injury- although he appeared to settle down later in the game.Brady finished the day completing 20 of 31 (64.5%) for 283 yards and 2 touchdowns for a passer rating of 115.4. We cannot understate that this is excellent production. That said, he did leave some plays on the field and the Patriots definitely relied on Sony Michel and the rushing attack to carry the offense in the second half.If this is the type of game Brady will be asked to play for the rest of his career, with the running backs doing a lot of the work, then Brady will be able to make defenses pay- if he gets healthy again.Sony Michel changes the Patriots offenseMichel scared everyone when his body was crushed in two different directions by a pair of Jets defenders, but he got back on the field and continued to produce. Michel gained 145 yards from scrimmage and scored a touchdown in his most productive day in the NFL- and he looks as good as he did prior to his knee injury in week 7.With Michel on the field, the opposing defense has to respect the rushing attack in a way that James White and Cordarrelle Patterson don’t inspire. Defenders have to watch out for the play action and that opens up plays for Rob Gronkowski and the receivers deep down the field.It’s great to see Michel playing so well- and hopefully the return of Rex Burkhead will provide some much-needed depth to the New England backfield.Rob Gronkowski also changes the Patriots offenseGronk “only” had 56 receiving yards and a touchdown on 3 receptions https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Isaiah-Wynn-Jersey , but they were big yards and his blocking was extremely valuable. Gronkowski finally returned to the field after missing time with his ankle and back injuries and it’s clear that the team didn’t want to put him in overly risky situations with Dwayne Allen hurt and not able to play.Jets safety Jamal Adams got the best of this passing match-up, in my opinion, but Michel and James White combined for 206 rushing yards on 30 carries (6.87 yards per carry) and that rushing production doesn’t happen without Gronkowski taking out linebackers on the edge.Hopefully Gronkowski will get more opportunities other than low-percentage fade routes in the end zone. The Patriots defense settled down in the second halfThe Jets offense picked up 195 yards in the first half and 143 in the second half, but 57 of those yards came on their final drive that yielded zero points against the Patriots prevent defense. Honestly, outside of the Jets 9-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in the first half Danny Etling Color Rush Jersey , the Patriots did a great job on defense.New York gained more than 25 yards on a drive just four times: a touchdown drive, a field goal drive, and two drives that resulted in turnovers by the goal line. Sure, it was against an unimpressive Jets team led by Josh McCown. But after coming out flat against the Titans, it was good to see the defense play up to expectations against the Jets.Patriots on track to clinch a playoff spotThe Jets lost; the Bills defeated the Jaguars; and the Dolphins are currently playing the red-hot Colts.It would take a major upset for the Patriots not to win the AFC East.

THOUSAND OAKS Robert Woods Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Losing consecutive games for the first time as coach of the Los Angeles Rams hasn’t dampened Sean McVay’s sense of humor.McVay joked he hasn’t paid attention to the media coverage of Sunday night’s 30-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles “because I don’t want you guys to hurt my feelings.”Instead, McVay is concerned with getting the Rams out of their first prolonged slump in his two seasons.“You know you have a say in that this story is not finalized,” McVay said Monday night. “They don’t end the season after 14 games. And we know for sure that we have got two left in this regular season and one playoff game. What we don’t know is when that playoff game is going to be. We do know it’s going to be at the Coliseum, and that’s all we’re guaranteed right now.”McVay believes the Rams (11-3) showed signs of a turnaround by giving themselves a chance to tie the game on the final play, an incomplete pass by Jared Goff for Josh Reynolds. Goff was 17 of 23 passing for 179 yards in the fourth quarter against the Eagles after going 55 of 108 for 547 yards with one touchdown and seven interceptions over the previous 11 quarters.What bogged down the offense as the Eagles built a 17-point lead, McVay said, were breakdowns and penalties that put the Rams in difficult down-and-distance situations. The 32-year-old coach was pleased his team still had a chance to win in spite of those issues.“You could feel that momentum and, really Andrew Whitworth Color Rush Jersey , that clock ran out on us at the end of the game,” McVay said. “But in spite of all the different things that we went through, you can’t say these guys didn’t continue to fight, scratch and claw to put ourselves in a position to try to win a game. Credit to the Eagles for being able to get it done, but we’re going to learn from this and we’re not going to allow it to define our season. I do believe that and I know that.”Another confidence-booster for McVay is the health of Todd Gurley, who sustained a knee injury against Philadelphia that did not turn out to be serious. McVay said Gurley is dealing with inflammation and will be day-to-day going into the game at Arizona on Sunday. Gurley had 12 carries for 48 yards against the Eagles.McVay said he would be cautious with Gurley, who leads the NFL with 21 touchdowns and is second in the league in rushing yards. However, the chance to secure a first-round playoff bye by winning the final two games would factor into whether McVay would use Gurley against the Cardinals (3-11) if he is healthy.Complicating matters is the shoulder injury Justin Davis sustained against Philadelphia https://www.ramsfanstore.com/John-Johnson-Jersey , leaving rookie John Kelly as the only healthy running back on the roster. Davis is also day-to-day, McVay said.“I think you really just take it one day at a time,” McVay said. “These games are important for us. We’ve got to do a good job of getting ready for a tough division opponent at their place and having a good week of preparation.”NOTES: McVay met with CB Marcus Peters, who had a verbal altercation with a fan during the game Sunday. McVay did not say if Peters would face internal discipline. “He knows that we’ve got to be better in those situations and can’t allow whatever’s going on, in terms of that dialogue, to affect our ability to be focused on what is going on during the game,” McVay said. Rams cornerback Aqib Talib returned on Sunday from an ankle injury against the Lions, and the team placed him on a pitch count. This week Josh Reynolds Color Rush Jersey , the Rams expect Talib to play the entire game on Sunday night at Chicago.“He is, yeah,” coach Sean McVay told reporters on Friday. “Because of Detroit being a different surface, coming off just from just getting him acclimated, really, if you will, we felt like a half would be a good gauge for us and then you see how he feels. He felt great after the game. Hasn’t had any setbacks. Had a good week of practice. He’s continuing to get healthier as the days progress. It sounds like Soldier Field is in good condition and we’re expecting to have him out there. His leadership and his production has certainly given us聽a boost. You just feel his presence out there on the field. That’s one of those things that we’re sure glad to have Aqib back.”This meshes with what McVay had said earlier in the week, that “unless something sets us back Samson Ebukam Jersey , he’s going to be a full go and go聽from the start to the finish.”The Rams need Talib down the stretch. Their defense has a knack for stepping up when needed, but it still does plenty of bending and breaking and surrendering of points.The offense is good enough to overcome those lapses. At some point in the playoffs, however, the offense could stall. That’s when the defense will need to step up.

With Week 7 of the NFL schedule officially in the books Ernie Stautner Color Rush Jersey , at least for the AFC North, it’s time to take a look back at those teams who call the AFC North home to see how they fared and what the standings look like after this week’s action. The first goal for each team in the NFL is to win its division. Doing so guarantees both a playoff spot and a home playoff game, so even these early-season games are important when it comes to divisional rankings. Let’s take a spin around the AFC North to check on the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.Week 7 ResultsTampa Bay Buccaneers - 26Cleveland Browns - 23 (OT)Just when it looked like the Browns were a team who could actually make some noise in the AFC, and in the AFC North, they put together a very Brown-like performance and lose to the Buccaneers on the road in Week 6. It is crazy to think how they have played in 4 overtime games in the first 7 weeks of the 2018 regular season. Can certainly take its toll on a team.New Orleans Saints - 24Baltimore Ravens - 23The announcer said it after John Brown hauled in a Joe Flacco touchdown pass to cut the lead to one. “Justin Tucker has never missed an extra point in his NFL career.” Well, until Sunday. Tucker’s kick sliced wide right, and the Saints came away with a one-point win on the road. Drew Brees has now beaten every NFL team, including the Saints, which is an impressive statistic. No one saw Tucker missing that kick, but the Steelers faithful certainly were excited.Kansas City Chiefs - 45Cincinnati Bengals - 10Raise your hand if you were surprised at this result? I shouldn’t see any hands raised considering the Bengals were coming off a very physical loss to the Steelers https://www.steelerssportshop.com/John-Stallworth-Jersey , were on the road in a hostile environment, playing one of the league’s hottest teams and were playing on prime time — where they are awful. No shocker here.Week 8 ScheduleCleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers — 1 p.m. ET kickoffBaltimore Ravens at Carolina Panthers — 1 p.m. ET kickoffCincinnati Bengals vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — 1 p.m. ET kickoffAFC North StandingsPittsburgh Steelers - 3-2-1Cincinnati Bengals - 4-3Baltimore Ravens - 4-3Cleveland Browns - 2-4-1Let us know what you think about the division after Week 7 in the comment section below. Do you see this being a powerhouse division? Which teams are contenders and which ones are nothing more than pretenders? PITTSBURGH (AP) — Terrell Edmunds rubbed the small mark on his forehead, one still visible more than a full week after the Pittsburgh Steelers rookie safety found himself on the wrong end of a collision with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski."It looks like I lost a fight," Edmunds said.Yes and no. The 21-year-old Edmunds appeared to have Gronkowski stopped just short of a first down in the fourth quarter on Dec. 16 only to have Gronkowski extend his 6-foot-7 frame past the marker. Edmunds, giving away 6 inches and a good 50 pounds to Gronkowski, didn't mope or waste a second trying to shake the cobwebs out. He went right back to work. It's kind of his thing. The player who was a bit of a surprise first-round pick when the Steelers took him with the 28th overall pick in April has proven to be one of the few constants during an uneven season for Pittsburgh (8-6-1), which needs to beat Cincinnati in the regular-season finale on Sunday and hope Baltimore loses to Cleveland to win a third straight AFC North title. Edmunds has played 1,132 snaps through 15 weeks, tops on the team and the sixth-highest total in the league.Not bad considering he tore the labrum in his shoulder late in his final season at Virginia Tech. He was worried it would hinder his progress.Hardly. A full 19 games (including preseason) into his first year as a professional, Edmunds — voted the team's Rookie of the Year on Wednesday — looks just as fresh as he did when he arrived in town in early May."He's durable," safety Sean Davis, named Rookie of the Year in 2016 Louis Lipps Jersey , said. "He hasn't missed. We ask him to do a lot. He does it. He does a good job with it. He's picking the game up well."Edmunds didn't really have a choice. The Steelers signed veteran Morgan Burnett to a three-year contract in March then drafted Edmunds a month later, figuring they could bring him along slowly. It didn't exactly turn out that way. Burnett spent most of training camp and much of the early season battling various injuries, forcing Edmunds to take on a starting role immediately."When I first came in, just going out there, trying to put everything out there show Coach (Mike Tomlin) and (general manager Kevin) Colbert why they drafted me," Edmunds said. "My mindset is always to go out there and try to play, whether it was special teams, defense or whatever."Edmunds is third on the team in tackles (73) and picked up his first career sack when he chased down the Chargers' Philip Rivers on Dec. 2 and has rarely looked like a player just trying to figure this NFL thing out.Maybe it's because he always felt like he belonged. Edmunds comes from a football family. His father, Ferrell was a Pro Bowl tight end for the Miami Dolphins in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Older brother Trey is both his teammate and his roommate after signing with the Steelers in September and younger brother Tremaine Edmunds is in the midst of his own solid rookie season as a linebacker in Buffalo.Asked who is having the better year, he or Tremaine, Edmunds just laughed."Don't make me pick," he said. "We're going to go back and forth about it whenever we get home. He had a great year. I'm coming along better in my year now. It's something to build on."The Steelers are counting on it. Though Edmunds understands going so high in the draft surprised some Alejandro Villanueva Color Rush Jersey , he didn't take the perceived slight personally. If anything he tuned it out, impressing his teammates with his maturity in the process."To be able to be drafted where he was drafted and to able to absorb things from everybody, taking coaching, not thinking that he knows everything, I think he's got a very good base foundation," cornerback Joe Haden said.One Edmunds hopes he'll get to expand in January. He's well aware his team's playoff chances are iffy at best following a late swoon that's seen the Steelers drop four of five to cede the AFC North lead to the Ravens. Five straight months of playing haven't exactly worn him down. If anything it's left him hungry for more.So much for the dreaded "rookie wall." Edmunds insists there's no secret on why he's been able to keep going. He just has. It's part of the job."We always talk in the (defensive back) room that we can't let up," Edmunds said. "People are going to make plays in the league because everybody is a pro."NOTES: RB James Conner practiced Wednesday and appears close to returning from the sprained left ankle that's forced him to miss the past three games. Conner declined to offer an answer when asked if he would play against the Bengals, simply repeating he's "getting better and better." … QB Ben Roethlisberger, WR Antonio Brown and C Maurkice Pouncey were given the day off. … Davis (quadriceps) and LB Vince Williams (toe) did not practice. … Haden received the annual "Chief Award" given to a player for their cooperation with the media.

Luciano Spalletti held his traditional pre-match press conference this afternoon ahead of tomorrow evening’s crucial Serie A match against Torino. The Tuscan tactician addressed a variety of issues ranging from the physical condition of his players to the arrival of C茅dric Soares Cheap England Soccer Shirts , who has joined the club on loan with an option to buy from Southampton. Here is what he had to say to the journalists who gathered at the Suning Training Centre:“The week played out in the right way, we had a whole week to work. We had the time to organise what we need to put into practice. If we’re talking about the transfer market, to pay attention to something else in such a difficult period of matches takes something from me. Torino play a game that revolves around strength and physical duels, they’re strong and they’re good. They have a strong coach and they’re a strong club. We must certainly show something extra, we need to be ready to adapt to what happens during the match.“I’m happy that the club is working to always become stronger. The history of this club and our fans deserve it. They warrant answers as we look to build a team that is always getting stronger.“I expect something more from the team, not from individual players. Getting important results and moving into the Champions League places doesn’t depend on a single player in the Italian league. Everyone needs to give their best, always. It’s a team game, not an individual one.“I think that Icardi is having a good season and what he’s doing is totally in line with his quality. Peri拧i膰? He’s always spoken about during the transfer window because he’s a good player who everyone would like to have in their team. As a player, he knows what his job is and he expects to keep doing what he’s always done.“After training on Tuesday, Politano had a slight issue and daily evaluations become important in these cases. We’ll look at him again today Cheap France Soccer Jerseys , we’re all confident that he’ll become available. Dalbert? He’s a really strong player, one of real substance. We have the chance to allow him to show his overall strength in this role, Dalbert is one of those we are counting on for the future.“C茅dric? Everyone knows about him, he’s linked to the situation with Vrsaljko. He’s evaluating what to do with Inter and his parent club Atl茅tico Madrid.” FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Fernando Clavijo, a surprise starter for the 1994 U.S. World Cup team who went on to a long coaching and management career in Major League Soccer, has died. He was 63.FC Dallas said he died Friday at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from multiple myeloma. Clavijo was the team’s technical director from March 2002 until he stepped down last September because of his health.Inducted into the U.S. National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2005, Clavijo made 61 appearances for the U.S. national team from 1990-94 Cheap Germany Soccer Jerseys , mostly as a defender.“Fernando was an important leader with three MLS clubs, and he played a key role in the league’s player development strategy,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said in a statement Saturday.“More importantly, he was a joy to everyone who knew him and inspired countless young players.”An emerging player in the final years of the North American Soccer League, Clavijo was part of the generation hampered by the lack of the top-level American league between NASL’s demise after the 1984 season and MLS’s launch in 1996.Born in Uruguay, Clavijo began a 22-year professional playing career at age 16 Atenas of San Carlos, and six years later moved to the U.S. to sign with the New York Apollo of the American Soccer League in 1979.He played for NASL’s Golden Bay Earthquakes in 1983 and ’84, and he also played indoor soccer for the New York Arrows (1981-83), San Diego Sockers (1984-88), Los Angeles Lazers (1988-89) and St. Louis Storm (1989-92).He became a U.S. citizen in 1987 best replica football jerseys , and debuted for the U.S. team in a November 1990 exhibition against the Soviet Union in Port-of-Spain Trinidad.Clavijo had not started in six games when coach Bora Milutinovic inserted him in place of Cle Kooiman on the backline alongside Marcelo Balboa, Alexi Lalas and Paul Caligiuri for the Americans’ second match of the 1994 World Cup against Colombia, among the tournament favorites. Clavijo was not told he would be starting until just before the team left its hotel. The Americans won 2-1 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, putting themselves in position to advance to the knockout phase.“It’s one of the greatest feelings of my life,” he said after the match. “I knew this kind of game suits me better. They have a lot of speed up front.”At the time, Clavijo’s birthdate was listed as Jan. 23, 1957 — it is now listed as Jan. 23, 1956 — and he was the third-oldest player to appear in the tournament behind Cameroon forward Roger Milla (42) and Cameroon goalkeeper Joseph-Antione Bell.Despite his age, Clavijo was the third- or fourth-fastest player on the American team. He made a key play in the sixth minute when Anthony de Avila’s shot bounced off American Mike Sorber Cheap Iceland Soccer Shirts , hit a post and bounced back into the penalty area. With goalkeeper Tony Meola unable to recover, de Avila’s shot toward the empty net, but the ball hit Sorber again and bounced in front of the open goal, where Clavijo cleared the ball.“Somebody had to,” Clavijo said.His final U.S. match was the 1-0 loss to Brazil in the round of 16, when he was sent off in the 86th minute after getting his second yellow card.Clavijo started his coaching career as a player-coach with the St. Louis Storm of the Major Indoor Soccer League in 1991. After his playing days were done, he coached the Seattle SeaDogs of the Continental Indoor Soccer League (1995-97), the Florida ThunderCats of the National Professional Soccer League (1998-99). He served as Milutinovic’s assistant with Nigeria at the 1998 World Cup and MLS’s New York/New Jersey MetroStars in 1999, then was head coach of MLS’s New England Revolution from 2000-02.He led Haiti’s national team from 2003-05, the coached MLS’s Colorado Rapids from 2005-08 before a final coaching stint with Miami FC of the second-tier NASL in 2009. During his tenure in Dallas’ front office www.thetopsoccer.com/italy , the team finished with MLS’s best regular season record in 2016, when it won the U.S. Open Cup.“Fernando was a soccer pioneer,” FC Dallas President Dan Hunt said. “His knowledge and passion for the sport were unparalleled.”Clavijo is survived by wife Martha, sons Nico and Jonathan, daughter-in-law Thanne and grandchildren Lucas and Sofia.

Yes ladies High Quality Louis-Vuitton Replica Bags , it is that time again where I go talking about buying and spending for good causes. Can’t you tell I have a passion for this stuff? So check this out GUCCI fans!GUCCI has a new watch for fall. It’s a special edition Twirl watch (as seen above). It is a black stainless steel bracelet with jewelry clasp. It contains a rotating case with 34 black diamonds, totaling of .01 carats, black lacquered dial, GG engraved case back, quartz movement, sapphire, crystal, water-resistant up to 100 feet, and Swiss made.This is part of their ‘Gucci for FFAWN’ twirl collection. For every watch purchased, Gucci will donate $100 of each sale to the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN). FFAWN is a non-profit organization founded by Mary J. Blige to inspire women from all walks to reach their individual potentials. Hey! I’m all for that.You can preorder this beauty on their website for a generous $1895 and expect to receive it sometime in mid to end of November. Who says you just got to buy their handbags? Well, this is a surprise. While portable music devices have been a fixture in various shapes and forms since the 70s, never in our wildest dreams would we have envisioned the big boom box trend that was so popular in the 80s coming back for a second showing 鈥?yet that is exactly what appears to be happening. Sort of.Dolce and Gabbana have played their trump card in what feels like a designers' race to come up with the kitschiest “theme bag” yet. This race seems to have been playing-out over the last few fashion seasons Wholesale High Quality Replica Designer Bags , with no end in sight. Thinking back on it, I can recall a few of the real standouts: the Fendi furry “Monster” bags, Moschino's cartoonish “Fast Food” bag collection, and the never-ending evening bag offerings by Judith Leiber (the perfume bottles, telephones, and animals, to name a few). However, this time Dolce & Gabbana have done something with their theme bag that nobody else has to date; they've made it into an actual functioning boom box.The bag (which is not yet available in stores), in keeping with its old-school vibe, will have a cord that enables you to connect your iPhone (as opposed to pairing it via Bluetooth) and play the music of your choosing. While there is no price listed for this bag as yet (we're guessing it will be on the pricey side), the company has stated only that the Boom Box Bag will be in a “handful of stores” and on the Dolce & Gabbana website “very soon.”

Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesMLB playoff subterfuge reached critical mass Wednesday in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Milwaukee Brewers.Brewers manager Craig Counsell removed starting pitcher Wade Miley after he threw just five pitches. According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-scott-kazmir-jersey , that was all part ofCounsell's strategy:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalRemoving Miley was Brewers鈥?plan. He will start Game 6.Brandon Woodruff came on in relief and pitched a scoreless first inning.Plenty of writers had fun with Counsell's unique approach:Joe Sheehan joe_sheehanquot;Wade, what kind of stuff did you have out there today?quot;Bill Plunkett billplunkettocrFor all of you old-schoolers who think todays starting pitchers are coddled -- Wade Miley will probably start consecutive games in this #NLCS.Satisfied?joon joonleewade miley ellXjan1NFD.J. Short djshortAnother scoreless start for Wade Miley, wowCounsell has pushed the idea of "bullpenning" to its extreme throughout the postseason.Entering Wednesday, the trio of Miley, Jhoulys Chacin and Gio Gonzalez had combined to pitch 23.2 innings in six games.Taking Miley out of the game so quickly is obviously risky Kurt Suzuki Jersey , but Counsell's thinking is easy to understand. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will have built his starting lineup around facing a left-handed starter. Instead, Los Angeles gets the right-handed Woodruff.GiveCounsell credit for thinking outside the box, though he'll likely face a lot of criticism if the Brewers drop Game 5 and fall behind 3-2 in the series. Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesDrew Pomeranz signed with the San Francisco Giants, the team announced Wednesday.According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, Pomeranz and the Giants agreed to a one-year http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-dansby-swanson-jersey , $1.5 million deal, and Pomeranz can earn as much as $5 million from the deal if he hits all of his incentives.The structure of Pomeranz's contract is indicative of his performance in 2018. The veteran left-handermade 26 appearances and finished with a 6.08 ERA and 5.43 FIP, perFanGraphs. Among the 212 pitchers who logged at least 70 innings, he was203rdin WAR (minus-0.3).Daren Willman darenwDrew Pomeranz statcast rankings last year... 馃槵 oSyXti5xbMPomeranz missed all of June and most of July whilerecoveringfromleft biceps tendinitis.

In 22.2 innings of relief Ozzie Albies Jersey , Pomeranzallowed14 earned runs and 12 walks while striking out 22 batters.Despite his obvious flaws, NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic believes Pomeranz helps the Giants achieve one of their offseason aims:Alex Pavlovic PavlovicNBCSZaidi wanted to get deep enough that Rodriguez/Suarez could ease their way into sophomore seasons. Bumgarner + Holland + Pomeranz and maybe Samardzija might allow Giants to do that.The 2016 All-Star is worth a one-year, relatively cheap flier. Assuming he can stay healthy in 2019, he might be closer to the pitcher who was worth 3.2 WAR in 2017. Pomeranzhad a 3.84 FIP while averaging 9.0 strikeouts and 3.6 walks per nine innings that season.The risk for the Giants isn't very high if Pomeranz's performance doesn't improve or he once again battles injuries. The upside for San Francisco is that it potentially got a middle-of-the-rotation starter for a bargain price.

Al Bello/Getty ImagesThe Boston Red Sox took Game 1 of the 2018 World Series with an 8-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale were both chased after four innings in a game that was hyped as a potential pitcher's duel Craig Biggio Jersey , and plenty more offense is likely forthcoming in this series.The Red Sox banged out 11 hits in the opener, including a 4-for-5 performance from Andrew Benintendi who scored three runs out of the No. 2 spot in the lineup.Pinch-hitter Eduardo Nunez delivered the big blow, though, launching a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to break things open.Take a look below for Game 2's key information and a preview of tonight's action.Game 2 InformationStart Time:8:09 p.m. ETTV:FoxLive-Stream:Fox Sports Go or Fox Sports appPreviewHyun-Jin RyuDylan Buell/Getty ImagesThe Red Sox were unable to take a 2-0 series lead in the ALDS and ALCS, as they left Fenway Park with both those series knotted at 1-1. After tonight's Game 2, the series moves to Los Angeles for the next two games (and a third if necessary).In his first career start at Fenway, left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu will look to do what ace Clayton Kershaw couldn't in the opener: quiet the Boston offense.The Dodgers will hope they can get on the board early before Boston starter David Price can settle in. Third baseman Justin Turner was able to single three times in Game 1, although the Dodgers' only extra-base hit was Matt Kemp's solo home run in the second.Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesMeanwhile, the Red Sox will look to designated hitter J.D. Martinez to build on his solid play from Game 1, when he managed two RBI and reached base three times.Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will hope his bullpen (three earned runs in Game 1) can hold up long enough to bring in closer Kenley Jansen and allow Los Angeles to head home with the series tied.Prediction: Dodgers 6, Red Sox 4All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference, unless otherwise noted. NEW YORK (AP) — Hanging on a hook in David Wright’s locker, above the baseball spikes and opposite the helmets of his favorite football teams, the New York Giants and Virginia Tech Hokies George Springer Jersey , was a blue and orange Mets cap and white jersey with pinstripes.No. 5 as always, with his name across the back.And for the first time in nearly 2½ years, Wright was ready to grant himself the privilege of putting it on.“When I’m hurt, I never put my uniform on. I wear a hoodie or something like that,” he said. “So to put that thing on again means the world to me, and is something that you tend to take for granted.”After countless hours of rehab during an arduous comeback, Wright was reinstated from the disabled list Tuesday and added to New York’s active roster for the first time since June 3, 2016. Following a long road back from several serious injuries, the 35-year-old team captain was eligible off the bench against NL East champion Atlanta.“To say it’s a good feeling is an understatement. It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait to put that jersey on tonight, for sure,” Wright said. “A lot of time, a lot of hard work.”Wright didn’t play in a 7-3 loss, but he’s scheduled to start at third base in his farewell game Saturday night against Miami.“I’m real nervous, I’ll tell you that. I’m real excited. Got the butterflies going. It’s going to be a weird http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-gattis-jersey , yet fulfilling feeling,” he said. “I want to put on as good a show as I possibly can — and at the same time soak it all in.”Mets manager Mickey Callaway confirmed longtime teammate and friend Jose Reyes will start alongside Wright at shortstop on Saturday.“I’m going to try to allow myself to get in the moment,” Wright said. “I’ll take it all in while I’m out there as much as I can.”Assistant general manager John Ricco said it was unlikely Wright would play during the three-game series against the Braves because they’re trying to earn home-field advantage in the Division Series, and the Mets don’t want to compromise the integrity of the pennant race.It’s possible Wright could pinch-hit in a lopsided game, though.Heavy rain fell much of Tuesday, and the series opener began in front of a sparse crowd following a 32-minute delay.Wright and Callaway have both expressed a desire to get the seven-time All-Star a plate appearance or two ahead of Saturday. So it seems Friday night against the last-place Marlins is most likely.“I hope to go out there and do something that doesn’t embarrass me, but it’s going to be difficult, not having an at-bat for a while,” Wright said.Wright hasn’t played in the majors since May 27, 2016, due to neck, back and shoulder injuries that required surgery. He homered in his last three games before going on the DL.Last month, Wright batted .171 (7 for 41) with a double and two RBIs in 10 rehab games for Class A St. Lucie and two with Triple-A Las Vegas.The Mets announced plans on Sept. 13 to activate Wright for the last homestand of the year, giving him an opportunity to accomplish his goal of returning to the majors — and a chance for him and adoring Mets fans to say goodbye.“Honestly Carlos Correa Jersey , I was hoping he’d be back as a full-time player,” Ricco said. “I was hoping for more than this, obviously.”Unable to get healthy enough to resume his career in earnest, Wright said he expects this weekend to be his last big league appearance. Choking back tears earlier this month, he mentioned how important it was to him to have his two young daughters see him play, and several friends and family members will be in New York this week to cheer him.“The support that I’ve received the last couple weeks has been indescribable,” Wright said. “The memories have been plentiful.”Before injuries derailed his stellar career, Wright once appeared on track to compiling a Hall of Fame resume. Drafted by the Mets, he is the longest-tenured active player with one team in the majors.Wright is perhaps the greatest position player in team history, too — the club’s career leader in hits (1,777), RBIs (970), runs (949), doubles (390) Dallas Keuchel Jersey , total bases (2,945), extra-base hits (658) and walks (761). His 242 home runs rank second to Darryl Strawberry’s 252, and he went deep at Citi Field in Game 3 of the 2015 World Series.“As a young player … you think you can play forever,” Wright said. “I basically went without a scratch for the first eight, nine, 10 years, and things certainly caught up to me fast the last three years.”Wright was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Mets placed right-hander Eric Hanhold on the 60-day DL with a strained left oblique muscle.

BOSTON (AP) — It took more than a century for these clubs to finally meet again in the Fall Classic.They had plenty of stars http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-mel-ott-jersey , especially during baseball’s Golden Era — Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson and The Duke of Flatbush, among them.But a World Series between the Red Sox and Dodgers just wasn’t part of the program.Or was it?Because a lucky few still have a souvenir of their greatest near-miss: a copy of the “official program” for the 1946 World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.Of course, they didn’t play that year, it was a phantom series. The St. Louis Cardinals swept Brooklyn in a best-of-three playoff for the NL pennant, and went on to beat Boston in Game 7 for the championship.“We never met the Red Sox,” longtime Brooklyn pitcher Carl Erskine, now 91, reminisced this week. “I pitched in the World Series five different years, always against the Yankees. I never got to pitch at Fenway Park.”Even so, the Harry M. Stevens company was prepared. That was the concessionaire for the Dodgers, Yankees and Giants Hunter Pence Jersey , and it needed to be ready in case the Dodgers advanced.So it printed up the program for games in Brooklyn, just in case. Featuring a neat, overhead photo of Ebbets Field on the cover, the 40-page booklet was priced at 25 cents.Inside, the expected lineups and batting orders were listed. Eddie Stanky, Pee Wee Reese and Carl Furillo would be starting for the Dodgers, and Williams, Johnny Pesky, Dom DiMaggio for the Red Sox.Brief bios were done on the players. The write-up on Williams noted, “he’s the only .400 hitter in the past decade.”A fast recap of the season mentioned Branch Rickey, saying, “the 1946 pennant of the Dodgers marks his first triumph as president and part owner of the Brooklyn club.”There were plenty of ads http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-matt-williams-jersey , including this one signed by the president of the Brooklyn Trust Company: “Congratulations! We join with the millions of other baseball fans in offering congratulations to the Brooklyn Dodgers upon their winning the National League pennant.”What happened to most of those programs, no telling. But some show up for sale on the internet for several hundred dollars.Years later, the clubs came close a couple times.The Red Sox next went to the World Series in 1967, a season after the Los Angeles Dodgers made it. Boston was back in ’75, a year after the Dodgers.Not until Tuesday night at Fenway will they square off for real in October, for the first time since Babe Ruth and the Red Sox beat Brooklyn in 1916.Erskine said he’d be watching this week from his home in Anderson, Indiana, cheering for his old club.He signed with the Dodgers in 1946 at age 19 and played that season in the Class B Three-I League, which had teams in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa.Erskine recalled rooting for Brooklyn in the NL pennant playoff — the Dodgers lost 4-2 at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis, then fell 8-4 at home. The World Series began three days later at the Cardinals’ field.The next year, big league baseball changed forever when Jackie Robinson joined the Dodgers and broke the color barrier. He played that fall when Brooklyn took on the Yankees.“I remember listening to that World Series on the radio. We didn’t have television back home Bruce Bochy Jersey ,” Erskine said. “I couldn’t have imagined I’d be playing with Jackie in the majors the next year.”Erskine indeed made his debut in 1948. In 1953, he set a World Series record with 14 strikeouts in a game, fanning Mickey Mantle all four times he came to the plate in a 3-2 win at Ebbets Field.Erskine saw a lot of the Yankees over the next several years. But he never ran across the Red Sox in a game that counted.“They had good clubs in those days, but the Yankees were dominant,” Erskine said.“It’s funny, the Red Sox had wanted to sign me,” he said, laughing. “Who knows, if I had signed with them, maybe there would have been a Red Sox-Dodgers World Series.” NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton joined the 300-home run club Thursday night, connecting for a two-run drive in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers.Stanton ended a 10-game homerless drought and became the 147th player to reach the mark, 11 of them active. He did it in 1 http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-willie-mays-jersey ,119 games, making him the fifth-fastest to hit the milestone behind Ralph Kiner, Ryan Howard, Juan Gonzalez and Alex Rodriguez.At 28, Stanton was the ninth-youngest player to hit 300. He hit his 33rd homer for New York. He led the majors with 59 last year and was the NL MVP before Miami traded him to the Yankees.Stanton went the opposite way for a drive into the right field seats on a 3-1 pitch from left-hander Francisco Liriano.Stanton watched the path of the ball for a couple seconds before flipping his bat aside with a small smile on his face. After rounding the bases and receiving a warm ovation from his teammates, he emerged from the dugout and doffed his helmet to the fans offering a standing ovation.The home run continued a gradual feeling-out process between the fans and Stanton, whose slumps have made him the occasional target for boos during his first season with the Yankees. He’s had three dry spells of 10 or more games without a home run this year.

KANSAS CITY Ivan Rodriguez Jersey , Mo. (AP) — Chris Owings has agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, five days after the utilityman was cut loose by Arizona.Owings can earn an additional $500,000 in performance bonuses based on plate appearances as part of the deal announced Wednesday: $50,000 each for 325 and each additional 25 through 500, and $100,000 for 550.The 27-year-old Owings hit .206 in 106 games this year. He made 33 starts in right field, 10 in center, nine at third, eight and second and three in left. He had 12 homers and 51 RBIs in 2017.Owings had a $3.4 million salary this year http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-shin-soo-choo-jersey , was eligible for salary arbitration and likely would have received a raise. But the Diamondbacks failed to offer a 2019 contract by last Friday’s deadline.He is eligible for free agency after the 2019 season. The Milwaukee Brewers arguably pitched well enough through the first five games of the National League Championship Series to have already earned a spot in the World Series.However, when they take the field at Miller Park on Friday night, the Brewers will find themselves on the short end of a 3-2 series score to the Los Angeles Dodgers and, consequently, on the brink of elimination.The big problem is the lack of offense that the Brewers have had in their three games in Los Angeles. It's a surprising twist from a team that was able to string clutch hits together down the stretch run of the regular season and in the NLDS against the Colorado Rockies."We were unable to score enough runs," manager Craig Counsell said, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I think that was the bottom line of the three games [in L.A.].They've done a good job of holding us down offensively.Counsell added: "I know you're going to play 'what if' we could have captured another one of these games, but we're still going home and have a chance with this thing, with a bunch of [pitchers] in really good shape."The first pitch is scheduled for 8:39 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised by FS1. NLCS ScheduleGame 1: Brewers 6 Prince Fielder Jersey , Dodgers 5Game 2: Dodgers 4, Brewers 3Game 3: Brewers 4, Dodgers 0Game 4: Dodgers 2, Brewers 1 (13 innings)Game 5: Dodgers 5, Brewers 2; Dodgers lead, 3-2Game 6: Dodgers at Brewers; Friday, Oct. 19, at 8:39p.m. ET on FS1*Game 7: Dodgers at Brewers; Saturday, Oct. 20, at 9:09p.m. ET on FS1*If necessary.The Brewers need their big hitters http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-adrian-beltre-jersey , Christian Yelich, Jesus Aguilar, and Travis Shaw, to come through. Yelich blasted 36 home runs during the regular season, Aguilar was right behind with 35 and Shaw added 32. Ryan Braun also contributed 20 home runs and 64 runs batted in, making up a potent foursome.Wade Miley, who pitched to one batter in starting Game 5, will get the start in Game 6 for the Brewers, while Hyun-Jin Ryu will get the start for the Dodgers.Miley was 5-2 in 16 starts with a 2.57 earned-run average during the regular season. He limited opposing hitters to a .237 batting average and a 1.21 WHIP. Miley has been on top of his game in the postseason, as he has not given up a run in 10.1 innings.Ryu is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in the postseason Nolan Ryan Jersey , having allowed 10 hits and two earned runs in 11.1 innings. He has also held opposing batters to a .227 average.The Dodgers are -120 favorites to win the game and close out the series, while the Brewers are even money. A bettor backing Los Angeles would have to risk $120 to win $100, while a Milwaukee backer would have to risk $100 to earn a $100 profit. PredictionThe Brewers should feel good about returning to Miller Park and playing before their adoring fans. However, if they want to feel better after Friday night's game, they need to remember how to hit in key situations.Beating Ryu will not be easy, but look for the Brewers to come through in the late innings with the game on the line. They will get the clutch hits from Yelich and Shaw, and the Milwaukee pitching will hold down the Dodgers.The Brewers win Game 6 and force a winner-take-all Game 7.

BEREA Orange Bernie Kosar Jerseys , Ohio (AP) — As Baker Mayfield threw long passes to his wide receivers and short ones to backs before Sunday’s game against Carolina, Browns interim coach Gregg Williams knew his rookie quarterback was going to have a good game.It wasn’t any sight.It was a sound.“You can hear the ball come out of the quarterback’s hand with a ‘ssssssst’ and you can hear how tight the ball was coming out of his hand,” Williams said. “It was bringing a smile to my face when I saw him warm up and really the entire game he was zipping it.”Mayfield zipped it all day long, completing a 66-yard pass on Cleveland’s first play and whipping several passes into tight coverage during a 26-20 win that gave the Browns their fifth win and kept their faint playoff hopes flickering.Mayfield’s arm strength isn’t usually the first thing mentioned when discussing the No. 1 overall pick’s top attributes. More often his accuracy, leadership and, of course, abundant confidence are brought up first. But Mayfield, whose “I woke up feeling dangerous” has become a catch phrase around Cleveland, has shown he can rear back and fire the ball with any quarterback.After the Browns fell behind the Panthers 7-0, Mayfield quickly stripped Carolina of momentum by stepping up and throwing a laser down the field — the ball traveled more than 60 yards — to receiver Breshad Perriman, who hauled in the deep pass to set up Cleveland’s first TD.The play exemplified Mayfield’s confidence, and the trust he has built with Cleveland’s coaching staff.“That was a rocket and that was a long throw, and it is a long throw on the money,” Williams said. “In practices, we have seen longer throws and we have seen even more accurate throws that other people have not seen yet.”Mayfield showed off his arm — and accuracy — a little later with a 51-yard TD toss to receiver Jarvis Landry, who appeared to be well-covered on the play. Mayfield, though, squeezed his throw between two defenders, showing both fearlessness and faith.“It was where it needed to be,” Landry said. “The guy’s back was turned. The corner that was coming from the outside was trying to squeeze it, and the ball literally went between both of them. It was a hell of a throw.”Mayfield is bringing the heat.The Browns (5-7-1) have won three of four going into this week’s game in Denver, and in those victories Bernie Kosar Jerseys 2019 , he has completed 79 percent of his passes (54 of 68) for 712 yards with eight TDs and no interceptions. Mayfield has also shown remarkable resiliency by shaking off a three-pick performance in the first half at Houston to pass for 351 yards in the second half while standing in the face of the Texans‘ tenacious pass rush led by J.J. Watt.Williams has been cautious to heap too much praise on the 23-year-old, but lately he has gone out of his way to compliment his young QB.Following Wednesday’s practice, Williams said Mayfield’s arm was “off the charts” in terms of its liveliness.“He had a live day on Sunday, but (snaps fingers) came back today and it looked like it was even more live today,” Williams said. “The first thing I thought was ‘young’.”But beyond Mayfield’s youth and the life in his high-velocity arm, Williams sees something special.“The good quarterbacks, some of the times when some of us may judge a throw that, ‘Wow, that was not a very good throw.’ Why? Because it was on his back shoulder?” Williams said.“It was on his back shoulder because that is the way that the guy throws the player open. Drew Brees and some of those guys — Joe Montana, Warren Moon, Peyton Manning — and all of the guys that I have been with or gone against — will throw the guy open.“He is doing that. That is a natural thing. That is not something that can be overly taught at this level. If we have to spend a lot of time trying to teach that at this level, he probably will never ever get it.”NOTES: While the Browns remain a long shot to make the playoffs, S Damarious Randall believes they belong in the postseason. “We feel like we’re a playoff team,” Randall said. “We feel like we deserve one of them six spots. We know we dug ourselves in a hole, and we know that we need some help. It starts with us winning out. If we win out, they just better not let us in the playoffs.” … Rookie S Denzel Ward remains in concussion protocol. He missed Sunday’s game.Browns’ defensive snap counts, stats, and PFF notes: Week 1 Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.Defensive LinePosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsWow! Myles Garrett played every single snap of the game. That is definitely a difference maker from a year ago. No wonder he was exhausted. I’m not sure I quite agree with that high of a utilization, though — he should have a break every so often to stay fresh.Entering the season, I started thinking to myself, “how can I not expect Myles Garrett to get a sack every week?” Sure enough Youth Antonio Callaway Jersey , he opened with 2 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. There were a couple of negatives — a roughing the passer penalty, and then an illegal block in the back penalty on the interception return in overtime. But those forced fumbles in the fourth quarter are the only reason Cleveland found new life to spark their comeback. What an MVP-type weapon. PFF was a little more critical of Garrett:Unfortunately, the defensive end position outside of Garrett wasn’t much of a strength. Emmanuel Ogbah finished the game with an assist. Garrett also acknowledged that he tweaked his right ankle a little.Larry Ogunjobi had an abnormally high number of tackles for a defensive tackle with seven, and his utilization was also through the roof at 94% of the snaps. That’s what happens when you cut Jamie Meder and Caleb Brantley all of a sudden; your depth of familiar players goes out the window to start the season, and Trevon Coley got hurt again.LinebackerPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsRight place, right time? I don’t care — I’ll take it for Joe Schobert. One of my keys for him this year was that he needed to take that next step and make more game-impacting plays, and recovering two fumbles counts.Schobert played 100% of the snaps still, but Christian Kirksey was only in for 73% of the snaps after not missing one snap last year. Jamie Collins played 61% of the snaps.The underrated weapon of the game was rookie Genard Avery, who seemed to be seeing action as more of a pass-rushing defensive end and played 51% of the snaps. He had the forced fumble in overtime (which initially appeared to be an interception for Schobert) to give Cleveland a shot at winning the game via field goal.CornerbackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsRookie Denzel Ward passed the test with his debut, showing great instincts coming away with two interceptions. I know he gave up the touchdown to Antonio Brown, but that was very good coverage, and he had his hand right in Brown’s catch area. PFF also highlighted another play of his: “He also showed his all-around skill by drawing a flag on a screen while disrupting the rhythm of the play.”Terrance Mitchell also had a couple of nice plays, including one where he contested and broke up a pass for Brown despite having his back to the quarterback.Just from my initial viewing, the player who kept getting beat unfortunately was Briean Boddy-Calhoun, being a bit flat-footed at the line, leading to big plays. T.J. Carrie only saw one snap. It’ll be interesting to see if E.J. Gaines cracks the stat sheet once he is healthy.SafetyPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsThe safeties were opportunistic for Cleveland, with Damarious Randall showing his ball skills on a deep interception, and Jabrill Peppers scooping up a fumble and nearly taking it the distance. Randall’s one missed snap came when he cramped up.It was Derrick Kindred who ended up playing more snaps (74%) than Peppers (42%). Expect those numbers to vary between the two most of the season, as both will be used heavily. Custom Chicago Bears Jerseys

INDIANAPOLIS 鈥?Andrew Luck followed the perfect plan Sunday.He threw three more touchdown passes again Quenton Nelson Jersey 2019 , avoided getting sacked again and helped Adam Vinatieri achieve another record-breaking moment by leading the Colts to their fourth straight win.Luck and T.Y. Hilton hooked up twice for scores, Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins each ran for one touchdown and the Colts’ defense stymied Tennessee in a 38-10 drubbing that gave Luck a 10-0 record against the Titans.“Andrew was just unbelievable,” coach Frank Reich said after his quarterback improved to 10-0 in the series. “I mean every throw was with pinpoint accuracy.”His timing was spot on, too.With some of the franchise’s greatest players in attendance, Luck went 23 of 29 for 297 yards and finished with a rating of 143.8. He tied Dan Marino for the third-longest streak of consecutive games with three or more TD passes (seven) in league history. Only Tom Brady (10) and Peyton Manning (eight) remain ahead of Luck on the list.Hilton caught nine passes for 155 yards in front of Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison, the top two receivers in each of the Colts’ most prominent receiving categories.And the victory, the 210th regular-season win of Vinatieri’s career, allowed the 45-year-old to break George Blanda’s record as Indy (5-5) moved squarely back into the playoff hunt.For the Titans (5-5), it was all too familiar.They’ve lost to Luck聽when he never gave them a chance, when he rallied the Colts late, when he was pulled early and even when he was hurt. This loss might have been the most frustrating yet.After defensive coordinator Dean Pees was taken to a nearby hospital when medical workers took him out of the press box in a wheelchair during the first quarter, first-year coach Mike Vrabel took over play-calling duties and Luck skewered the league’s top-ranked defense.Losing starting quarterback Marcus Mariota with an injured right elbow in the final minute of the first half certainly didn’t help.Vrabel provided no postgame update on Mariota but said Pees would be kept overnight for further tests. The 69-year-old Pees retired briefly after last season, and Luck and Reich both said they hoped Pees would be all right.Tennessee, meanwhile, has some soul-searching聽to do.“They were ready to go. They played much better than we did. They coached much better than we did,” Vrabel said. “We have to drop this and lose it after we make the corrections, and get going.”Luck made it look easy.After Mack’s 1-yard run and Vinatieri’s 22-yard field goal gave Indy an early 10-0 lead, Luck connected with Hilton on a 68-yard TD pass. Wilkins’ 18-yard scoring run made it 24-0.All the Titans could muster was a 42-yard field on the final play of the half 鈥?after Mariota left and only after the Colts drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.Indy put it away by winning a replay challenge that turned a聽Hilton’s 11-yard catch into a 14-yard TD聽and a 7-yard scoring pass from Luck to Dontrelle Inman in the fourth quarter.“I cannot speak to the previous years White Darius Leonard Jersey ,” Luck said of his mastery over Tennessee. “I’m just happy we’re 1-0 this year against Tennessee and we’ll face them again, obviously, when that time comes.”WAYNE’S WORLDWayne became the 15th member of the Colts’ Ring of Honor聽on Sunday during a halftime ceremony where he was surrounded by former teammates including Manning, Marvin Harrison and Edgerrin James, and NFL Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian, who drafted Wayne in 2001.He played in a franchise-record 211 games and caught 1,070 passes for 14,345 yards and 82 TDs in 14 seasons 鈥?all in Indy.“This (blue) jacket looks pretty damn good on me, thank you,” Wayne said before jogging to the end zone to thank the fans 鈥?as he did for years just before kickoff.STAT PACKTitans: Mariota was 10 of 13 with 85 yards and one interception before leaving. Blaine Gabbert went 11 of 16 with 118 yards, one TD and one interception after replacing Mariota. … Tennessee allowed five sacks. … The Titans gave up a season-high point total.Colts: Luck was not sacked for the fifth consecutive game, breaking a tie for the fifth-longest streak in the league since sacks became an official stat in 1982. Luck has not been sacked in 214 consecutive dropbacks. … Starting center Ryan Kelly left in the fourth quarter with a knee injury and did not return. He said his knee will be examined Monday.THEY SAID ITTitans: “I was able to get the headset switched over, and everybody on the staff, just like they do with Dean, was able to help out,” Vrabel said.Colts: “I guess I knew they kept that stat, but I didn’t know I was close,” Vinatieri said of passing Blanda.UP NEXTTitans: Vrabel returns to Houston next Monday.Colts: Welcome former division foe Miami to Indianapolis next Sunday. The Indianapolis Colts traveled to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in hopes of upsetting the AFC’s No. 1 seed in order to make their way to the AFC Championship Game next weekend. The Colts ‘1-0’ mantra had been serving them well thus far as they’ve ripped off 10 wins in their last 11 games Darius Leonard Jersey 2019 , but this wasn’t anything like any of those games before.In the elements created from the winter storm that came through, the Colts and their offense sputtered out of the gate going three-and-out on their first two drives while the Chiefs came out hitting on all cylinders on their first two possessions to grab the big early lead in front of their exuberant crowd. The Colts eventually got on the board via a blocked punt that was recovered in the end zone, but that was about all the Colts had to show for their efforts in the first half. The Colts weren’t much better in the second half either, and though they were able to move the ball far more effectively, it was far too little, far too late. In fact, Justin Houston’s sack on Luck late in the third quarter may have even put the final nail in the Colts’ coffin.In the end, the Chiefs put an end to the Colts’ magical run and ended their season in this 31-13 mismatch in the Divisional Round. Fortunately, though, Colts fans can proudly, say “I can’t wait until next year!” with confidence.Travis Kelce steamrolls Colts for over 100 yards, sets early tone for Chiefs’ offenseWe all knew that the Colts defense was going to be susceptible to the combination of Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes given their heavy zone looks. Whether the Colts were allowing that connection to play itself out, and attempt to just lock down the rest of the Chiefs’ playmakers or not, that absolutely did not work. Tyreek Hill gashed the Colts for a long 36-yard touchdown run, Damien Williams ran down their throat and put up another score on the ground, and Sammy Watkins was a thorn in their side as well. But, there’s no question that Kelce’s play, especially in the first half White Braden Smith Jersey , opened up the entire Chiefs’ offensive playbook for the remainder of the game.Kelce put up 93 receiving yards on the Colts’ defense in the first half, and ended with 108 yards on just 7 receptions. Colts offense failed to achieve first down through initial 28 minutes of gameBatted balls at the line of scrimmage, Marlon Mack getting tackled behind the line of scrimmage, and Eric Ebron running his third-down route short of the sticks all led to the Colts going three-and-out on their initial four first half possessions. That’s truly pathetic football. 12 plays and just over 6 minutes worth of possession in the first half. The Colts did manage to get the ball moving inside of the 2-minute warning rattling off 4 first downs as they were racing the clock with no timeouts remaining. However, they set up Adam Vinatieri for a field goal attempt with just a few seconds left in the first half, but it was all for naught as his kick was no good. The Colts offense wasn’t much better in the second half, and may not have really been better at all with all things considered. They couldn’t do anything against one of the league’s worst defenses, couldn’t sustain drives, couldn’t get the ball out quickly, they were much more leaky up front in the trenches than they’ve been this year, and the unit just seemed very out of sync all night long. Colts failed to get any pressure on Patrick Mahomes throughout gameYes, the Colts earned a handful of sacks throughout the night. But, no, the Colts did not get much pressure on the presumptive league MVP at all throughout this Divisional matchup. Jabaal Sheard earned a legit sack after winning off the edge in the second quarter, and Denico Autry was able to get himself a sack of the coverage type in the third quarter.Grover Stewart completed a sack — though he didn’t get credit for it — when Mahomes lost control of the ball and was forced to fall on it, and Kenny Moore was able to earn himself a couple more as well. Any way you look at it, the Colts’ front four was not able to consistently get pressure on the Chiefs’ passer. The coverage downfield improved in the second half, but pressure after four or five seconds of waiting for a receiver to open up Braden Smith Jersey 2019 , isn’t really pressure. As we all witnessed, getting pressure on the opposing quarterback is king. The Chiefs were able to generate it on Luck and get in his face all night, and the lack of offensive efficiency proves that. The Colts weren’t able to do that consistently on Mahomes from the interior and that allowed the Chiefs to build an insurmountable lead. Colts receivers lost the line of scrimmage most of the nightThe Colts’ receivers had 5 receptions on their final drive of the first half. That was, without question, the most production the group showed in the first 30 minutes of the game. In their first 4 possessions before that, combined, the Colts’ pass catchers only hauled in 2 catches. In the second half, they could only manage to bring in 12 more catches, and Hilton was able to turn one of those into a very nice touchdown grab. Additionally, the Colts hauled in 5 of those 12 second-half catches in garbage time on their final possession of the game. For the most part, the Colts receivers were out-muscled and just flat out out-played from the snap. This group will be an area that gets a lot of attention heading into the 2019 season and will need another legit weapon in order to work towards the group becoming a strength which it clearly was not this season. Kenny Moore played his butt offOne of the guys who had been getting pumped up since the opening of training camp, and legitimately earned all of his praise throughout the year was Kenny Moore. Moore showed that despite his stature that he could not be overlooked as an excellent cover corner. He matched up well against several team’s No. 1 receivers throughout the season, and played them tight and tough. He’s shown that he is one of the most physical guys in the Colts’ secondary, and that he can be counted on to be one of their premiere defenders into next season. The undrafted free agent was second in total tackles tonight for the Colts, totaled two sacks and had knocked down a pass on another blitz from the slot as well. Look for Moore to be getting a lot of praise as the 2019 season begins to get closer.

The Dallas Cowboys have made it a bit of a habit to groom their former players on their coaching staff. Just take a look at Marc Colombo Youth Joe Looney Jersey , Kellen Moore, or even Jason Garrett if you need an example.Somebody who the Cowboys have kept on their staff for a bit now has been former wide receiver Miles Austin. Austin spent the majority of his playing career with the Cowboys and started his path as a coach there. His path has now grown and spread off into a new direction as he’ll be joining the staff of the San Francisco 49ers.It’s not the first time that the Cowboys have lost one of their former players to a different coaching staff, such was the case last year when DeMarcus Ware joined the Denver Broncos. For whatever reason it just hasn’t worked out for the team to have had the openings necessary for these former players at that particular time.Miles Austin is joining a staff in San Francisco led by Kyle Shanahan who’s regarded as one of the smarter offensive minds in the NFL. Hopefully Austin develops into a fine coach, but just not against the Cowboys. Dez Bryant may soon have a new team, finally.According to NFL Media Joe Looney Jersey Stitched , the Saints liked what they saw during Tuesday’s workout, and the two sides currently are negotiating a deal.And if the deal happens, circle this date on your calendar: November 29. That’s when the Saints play the Cowboys. In Dallas. In prime time.Once the season began, Bryant’s best play became signing with a team in November, getting up to speed over the balance of the regular season Youth Jaylon Smith Jersey , and attempting to contribute in the postseason, hopeful to make the kind of impression in January that will get him paid in March.As to Bryant’s reputation for being emotional, the Saints may be one of the few teams equipped to handle him. Between quarterback Drew Brees and coach Sean Payton, they’ll be blunt and candid regarding their expectations, and if it’s not working Jaylon Smith Jersey Stitched , the Saints will move on. Like they did a year ago with running back Adrian Peterson.Earlier this year, the Browns were interested in Bryant, but he resisted. If he was trusting his instincts, his instincts were on the money.

Although the game doesn't count in the standings, there will be plenty at stake for both squads, each of whom have Super Bowl aspirations for the 2018 season. Neither team is expected to play their starters very much, if at all, but both teams will use this as an opportunity to begin to answer some key roster questions. The Saints, who have one of the most balanced rosters in the NFL on each side of the ball, will have a number of important depth issues to answer during the entire preseason. The Saints have some key position battles in spots that look deep on paper, but have some inexperience. Many are talking about the competition for the backup quarterback job behind Drew Brees between Taysom Hill, Tom Savage, and J.T. Barrett. While that does bear watching Youth Alvin Kamara Jersey , here are five positions to keep a close eye on in Thursday's game that will have a larger influence on the success of the 2018 Saints. WIDE RECEIVERDerick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThere is a ton of excitement over Saints rookie receiver Tre'quan Smith, and rightly so. The 3rd round pick from Central Florida has looked dominant at times against a very good New Orleans secondary. Smith may not see a ton of action on Thursday, because he has already worked his way near the top of the depth chart, but expect him to have alot of balls thrown his direction early. The Saints recent release of Brandon Coleman with an injury designation further opened the door for what may be the final receiver spot available on the roster. Returning vet Tommylee Lewis looks to be the early favorite to grab the fifth spot, behind superstar Michael Thomas, speedster Ted Ginn Jr., offseason free agent signing Cameron Meredith, and the rookie 3rd round pick Smith. Lewis has had a solid camp thus far, and dazzled during the 2017 preseason. He will likely face stiff competition to retain his spot from Austin Carr, undrafted rookie Keith Kirkwood, and recently signed veterans Michael Floyd and Brandon Tate. Floyd has a history of producing at the NFL level, averaging 910 yards per season with 17 touchdowns with Arizona between 2013-15, but legal troubles have hampered his career, and he has been with 3 teams in the last 3 years. Tate has been more productive as a kick returner during his nine year career, but has had some nice moments as a wideout during his brief time in Saints camp. The coaching staff is high on Carr, leading back to last season. He is a crisp route runner with sure hands that could prosper from the slot. Kirkwood is a big bodied target, similar to Coleman, but is a physical receiver that can make plays in the open field and be a threat near the end zone. The 26-yr. old Coleman may still return to the team once fully healthy, but the onus is now on an unproven group to show that they could add quality depth in the meantime. RUNNING BACK Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsOne of the storylines for the Saints this offseason is how they would replace the production of Mark Ingram during his four game league suspension to start the year. Alvin Kamara, one of the most versatile weapons in the league, will be one of the focal points of the New Orleans offense. The group behind him, however, has alot of questions to answer before the season opener. Boston Scott, a rookie 6th round pick, has shown nice open field elusiveness and the ability to explode through the line. Trey Edmunds returns for his second season, after showing the tendencies of a power runner a year ago. Edmunds and fullback Zach Line are the only backs on the roster who had a carry in 2017 other than Ingram and Kamara. Jonathan Williams was signed to the Saints practice squad last season after showing flashes of being a solid back with Buffalo the previous year. Williams was a productive weapon in college at Arkansas, able to run with both power and speed, but various injuries have slowed his progress in the NFL. New Orleans signed veteran backs Shane Vereen and Terrance West prior to training camp to provide experienced depth. Both West and Vereen have had productive seasons in the past, and will now have the opportunity to step up if the inexperienced running backs struggle. DEFENSIVE END Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsNew Orleans first round draft choice Marcus Davenport has been ruled out of this game, as the team brings him back cautiously from injury. Alex Okafor, returning from last year's mid-season Achilles injury, is ahead of pace and looks to be fully recovered, but coaches may use him sparingly early in preseason. Cam Jordan is one of the league's best defensive players, but is unlikely to see much action in this game, giving a few other players a chance to showcase their abilities on one of New Orleans' deepest positions. Second year Al-quadin Muhammad has shown good ability off the edge, and was among the NFL leaders in sacks last preseason. Muhammad was a raw player, often inactive last season because of his struggles with poor positioning at times. He has looked improved in that area at times in camp, and hopes to combine better awareness with his physical talent for a higher spot on the depth chart. Last year's 3rd round pick Trey Hendrickson also showed flashes of being a solid defender Alvin Kamara Jersey Stitched , but injuries last season slowed his development. He still had 2 sacks, a forced fumble, played the run well, and looks to be a more productive part of the defensive line rotation this season. Alex Jenkins was on the practice squad last after an impressive preseason outing, a performance that he is repeating so far this camp. Jenkins is part of the NFL's International program, and would not count as a roster spot if he is on the practice squad, but could very well earn a spot on the active roster with another good showing this preseason. George Johnson was signed as a free agent in mid-season last year, and had 2.5 sacks in just five games of action (including postseason), and played the run well, convincing the team to re-sign him to a contract extension this offseason. Johnson is a well-rounded end who may not be a flashy name, but gave the defense solid play when the position was thinned by injury a year ago. CORNERBACK Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsNew Orleans looks set in it's top three spots here. Marshon Lattimore looks like one of the league's next defensive superstars, and Ken Crawley and Patrick Robinson make up what could be a formidable cornerback trio. P.J. Williams is the returning nickleback, and could be hard to displace with the solid play he's displayed so far in camp. Second year Arthur Maulet, an undrafted rookie a year ago, has been turning heads with his outstanding play in camp, and is a favorite to take a big step forward this year. Justin Hardee is one of the team's special teams standouts, and will try to solidify another roster spot with coverage opportunities. Natrell Jamerson, Kamrin Moore, and Linden Stephens are all rookies who have each had some good moments in camp, and are hoping to swipe a roster position away in one of the team's deepest areas. While all of these players will have a chance to catch the coaching staff's attention with defensive reps, their best chance to make the coach's decisions tougher will come through special teams performances. KICK RETURNER Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty ImagesWhile the Saints coverage squads are more athletic, there has been nothing special about the team's return units in quite some time. Kamara was an explosive kickoff return man when used in that capacity late last season, but the Saints would prefer to keep him for his important offensive role. Tommylee Lewis has been unspectacular, at best, as the primary kick and punt returner over the previous two seasons. Ted Ginn, one of the NFL's most dangerous returners throughout his career, struggled with those duties with the Saints. Natrell Jamerson, Boston Scott, and Brandon Tate are all locked in position battles, but each can clinch their spot if they can add an explosive element to the return game, a major liability over the past few years. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsPreseason games can sometimes become monotonous into the later stages of the third and fourth quarters, but that is often when many players can make a play or two that moves them onto an NFL roster. Some fans may be frustrated to see little of their favorite players in the early preseason, while others are going to be closely watching the backup quarterback battle. The New Orleans Saints are one of the deepest teams in the league, a championship caliber roster with talent and depth at nearly every position. Talented players will be competing ferociously to keep their NFL dreams alive, but may not see the field until late in this game because of the talent in front of them on the depth chart. With such a limited chance to make a strong impression in a game environment, we can expect some standout performances from a few of these players, as they begin to answer some of the roster questions that have been asked about the New Orleans Saints for months.

Consider me guilty as charged.I’m definitely alarmed Torry Holt Jersey , anxious, frightened, agitated, hysterical, and splitting my time between wildly unthinking behavior and dismayed, apprehensive consternation. And yes, you could even throw me in the tizzy/freak out camp. I offer no apologies — any fan who can remain entirely calm in the face of such abysmal football is likely no friend of mine.Should Los Angeles Rams fans be hitting the panic button?Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty ImagesFor as good as the Los Angeles Rams looked for the first 11 weeks of the season, we’ve hit a troubling skid that will either make us stronger or spell our undoing. Panic Eric Dickerson Color Rush Jersey , for all of its glorious synonyms, chewed fingernails and quickened pulses, won’t do us a damn bit of good. Here are 10 helpful tips to restore your faculties.1.Drink heavily2.Watch John Wick and pretend the bad guys killed Jared Goff’s puppy3.Watch a replay of last night’s MNF game and tell me the fired-up Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t have beaten that anemic New Orleans Saints team4.Practice selective memory: killer tailgate, bro! What’s that you say? Oh there was a game?5.Conspiracy theory: Tell yourself this is all part of the master plan. Sean McVay is inducing this panic so that your feelings of euphoria when the Rams win it all will be that much stronger. Oh, and also, he actually WANTS the second seed (prefers domes), doesn’t want to rest players down the stretch to stay sharp, and has a glowing briefcase locked in a vault at Rams HQ filled with plays that would prematurely blow all of our minds.6.Perspective: if this was the Jeff Fisher era https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Marshall-Faulk-Jersey , Rams Nation would be yawning and looking at top-10 draft prospects7.Nutrition: baby aspirin, kale, coconut oil, and Michelob Ultra. Other leafy greens are also acceptable according to the official Russ Crenshaw Diet.8.Exercise: follow the “Most Steps Ever” exercise routine and at least relieve some of the stress. Will it help C John Sullivan handle an interior pass rush? No. Will it bring WR Cooper Kupp back from IR? Sorry. Will it help restore your faith that the first 12 games of this season weren’t a fluke? For your sake (and mine), I hope so.9.Keep the faith: We’re purging some demons and getting our worst football out of the way now. Likely scenario: Rams win out, get well during the bye week, take care of business at home, and head to (presumably) New Orleans for the NFC Championship Game.10. Hug your kids. Kiss your wife. Enjoy your holidays. This is football. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Carson Wentz’s back injury will sideline him for Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Rams.With the Eagles’ No. 1 quarterback out Kurt Warner Color Rush Jersey , Nick Foles gets another opportunity to rescue the team he led to a Super Bowl victory last season.The Eagles moved Wentz from doubtful to out on the injury list Saturday.Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday that Wentz does not require surgery for a stress fracture in his back and the injury could take up to three months to heal. But Pederson wouldn’t rule him out for the rest of this season. The Eagles (6-7) are still in the chase for a playoff spot.There’s no lack of confidence in Foles among the Eagles, of course.“He’s the guy and it’s my job to create as much separation for him or if he gives me an opportunity and I am covered, go get it,” wide receiver Nelson Agholor said after Friday’s practice.Foles hasn’t taken a snap in a game since Week 2. He took over in Week 14 last season after Wentz tore two ligaments in his left knee during a comeback win on the road against the Rams. Foles led Philadelphia to its first NFL title since 1960 and started the first two games this season, going 1-1.“Nick is a Super Bowl MVP quarterback for a reason and we’ve got a ton of confidence that he’s going to give it his all like he always does,” said tight end Zach Ertz, who caught the winning touchdown pass from Foles in Philadelphia’s 41-33 win over New England in February.Foles is 21-12 as a starter, including playoffs Jared Goff Color Rush Jersey , in two stints with Philadelphia. He has completed 65.9 percent of his passes for 451 yards, one TD and one interception this season. He was outstanding last postseason, completing 72.6 percent of his passes for 971 yards, six TDs, one pick and also had a TD catch.Pederson is optimistic about Wentz’s recovery.“The fact that he doesn’t need surgery on this is the best news you could possibly have on anybody that has a stress fracture or stress injury,” Pederson said Friday.The team isn’t certain when Wentz got hurt and Pederson said the injury developed over time. A test on Tuesday revealed his condition.“He’s one of the toughest dudes I know, but of course it’s going to affect him,” wide receiver Jordan Matthews said after Thursday’s practice. “You have to be able to twist https://www.ramsfanstore.com/Austin-Blythe-Jersey , you have to be able to turn. Carson is probably the best quarterback also throwing off the run, so that affects your running, too. He’s wearing a knee brace. This guy is playing through a lot.”

One of the worst moments of the New England Patriots’ 38-31 win over the Chicago Bears yesterday was running back Sony Michel staying on the ground after a tackle early in the second quarter. The first-round rookie Kevin Faulk Color Rush Jersey , who lost the football in the process of going to the ground, got his leg twisted awkwardly and afterwards had to be assisted off the field and later carted to the locker room.New England quickly announced that he would not return to the field and that he had suffered a knee injury. The extent of the ailment has yet to be determined which will likely happen later on Monday: Michel is scheduled to undergo an MRI scan today to find out how badly his knee is hurt. While nothing is off the table, early reports coming out of Foxboro appear to be cautiously optimistic.First https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Adrian-Clayborn-Jersey , NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said on air that he heard whispers that the injury was “maybe not quite as bad as it looked.” ESPN’s Adam Schefter followed this report with one of his own:The reports come after former NFL team doctor David J. Chao tweeted that he also does not expect the injury to be season-ending:A report by NBC Boston’s Tom Curran seems to confirm Chao’s analysis:A noted above, the MRI will confirm the severity of the injury and by extent the time Michel might miss because of it. If the early reports – they are likely based on the initial testing that took place yesterday – are to be believed, however Dont'a Hightower Color Rush Jersey , Michel and the Patriots could have dodged a bullet: anything but a season-ending injury would be a good result, even if the 22-year old would still miss some time because of the ailment.[UPDATE] According to Ian Rapoport, the MRI showed a non-serious knee injury. While the timeline is not yet clear Joe Thuney Jersey , this is good news for the Patriots. For more information, please click here. The Steelers offense needed just over six minutes to get on the board on Sunday.The Patriots needed two minutes to answer. Tom Brady took advantage of a confused Steelers defense and hit Chris Hogan on a crossing route that Hogan turned upfield for a 63-yard touchdown. Stephen Gostkowski had to hit a longer extra point after a penalty on New England’s first try, but put it through for a 7-7 tie.The pass to Hogan was the third that Brady threw on the opening Patriots possession as he opened with short completions to Rex Burkhead and Cordarrelle Patterson. The Steelers had too many men on the field on third down and they still looked lost before the snap that led to Hogan’s touchdown.It’s back to the Steelers now and we’ll see if the defenses can come up with something better their next time out.

The Chiefs listed safety Eric Berry as doubtful for the first 10 games of the regular season while he was sidelined by a heel injury that kept him from practicing or playing.Berry has been on the practice field the last couple of weeks Mike Williams Color Rush Jersey , which changed his listing to questionable but didn’t lead to him playing against the Raiders or Ravens. A report over the weekend indicated that he’d take the final step back to the lineup against the Chargers this Thursday, but head coach Andy Reid said on Monday, via Nate Taylor of , that nothing is definite.Reid would only say “there’s a chance” that Berry will play his first game since Week One of the 2017 season this week. Reid added that he knows Berry wants to get out there.Berry’s absence hasn’t really held the Chiefs back as they’ve clinched a playoff spot and are on track for the top seed in the conference. That probably doesn’t make anyone in Kansas City any less eager to see if Berry can regain his past form over what’s left of this season. Decline or Re-Charge? The Patriots are Still Here - Mike D'AbateFor a team that so many are content to dismiss as being in decline, the epitaph of the Patriots dynasty is already being prepared. It would be a great sociological experiment to see just how many social media posts on this subject are already ‘saved and queued-up’ for Sunday. The ‘haters’ just waiting with giddy anticipation for the opportunity for their fingers to hit ‘send.” It should be a safe bet to say it is more than a few.Lucky moves that shaped all eight NFL playoff rosters - Bill BarnwellThe Chargers first signed Gates as an undrafted free agent in the hours after the 2003 draft, as part of a rookie free agent class that included future NFL veterans Kris Dielman (a defensive tackle who would eventually convert to guard) Darius Philon Color Rush Jersey , Stephen Cooper, Jacques Cesaire and Kassim Osgood. It's one of the best undrafted free-agent classes in league history, and Gates is the most notable contributor.Division-champion Chiefs dominate AFC West awards - ESPNWhat stood out about James this season for the Chargers was his versatility, as defensive coordinator Gus Bradley used him all over the field, including at free safety, strong safety Adrian Phillips Color Rush Jersey , cornerback, defensive end and linebacker. Along with his unique skill set, one of the things Chargers coaches have praised James for is the energy he brings to the team on a daily basis, which helps the entire defense. "This guy genuinely loves the game and has a passion for it," Bradley said. "I think that filters to our players, as well."What the Chargers have to do to beat the Patriots - Tyler GallagherInstead of bulking up by loading the box with linebackers Drew Kaser Color Rush Jersey , Bradley ran a whopping 98.3% of defensive snaps with 7 defensive backs. That decision turned out to be genius, as having speed on the field helped contain Jackson and kept the Ravens’ offense in a rut.Prime-time Parlay: FPI predictions for the divisional round - ESPN.comFPI actually thinks the Chargers are the slightly better team. But because this game is on the road -- and all the way across the country -- and because the Patriots have a rest advantage, it gives New England a solid shot to win. -- WalderSocial Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade

Graduating from high school — and figuring out what comes next — can be a stressful time for teens. One thing that shouldn’t be a source of worry? Deciding what shoes to wear on graduation day.Since your gown will look the same as everyone else's Cheap Yeezy From China , you'll want to choose a style that will help you stand out from the crowd. However, comfort shouldn't be sacrificed. Ceremonies also often run long, and many students head straight to parties and celebrations after the big event — making it even more likely that an uncomfortable pair of shoes could spoil the fun. To help kids pin down the perfect footnote for their cap-and-gown ensemble, we shopped the market for shoes that deliver both style and a feel-good fit.As a general rule, girls should steer clear of spiky heels — after all, no one wants to have an embarrassing tumble onstage.

Meanwhile, ankle strap shoes are always a good idea, as they'll help you stay sure-footed while making your legs look long.Some other key factors to consider: Heels aren't essential: You may think everyone will be wearing heels on the big day, but it's fair game to rock a pair of flat sandals or sneakers if that's more your speed. Remember to wear what makes you feel most confident. Don't choose shoes you can't walk in: If you're not a master at walking in heels, skip them. And if a style feels overly tight in-store Cheap Yeezy 350 , move on. It's never a good idea to purchase shoes you're uncomfortable in — no matter how much practice wearing or breaking in you may do. Your shoes don't have to match your gown: Don't be afraid to play with pops of color when it comes to your footwear; combos that may seem to "clash" are actually unexpected in the best way possible.Toms Monica Slingback WedgeToms’ Sienna cork-wrapped wedge features a neutral color palette to match any grad gown, as well as an ankle strap for added support.Toms Monica Slingback Wedge, $90; Nordstrom.comVince Camuto Chesten Lace-up SandalVince Camuto features a block heel on this peep-toe style, detailed with a lace-up construction and cut-out accents.Vince Camuto Chesten Lace-up Sandal, $110; Nordstrom.comSoludos Laser-Cut Banded SandalFlat sandals are another style to consider.

Tottenham's hopes of signing Adrien Rabiot has been rocked as recent rumors claim the player is not willing to join Spurs. The reason: he favors a move to Liverpool instead.The French midfielder is seeking a PSG exit. The 24-year-old refused to sign an extension with his Ligue 1 employers in a bid to force a move to Barcelona and has thus been frozen out of Tuchel's squad.However Cheap Colombia Soccer Shirts , the Blaugrana recently acquired the services of Frenkie de Jong and are thus unlikely to spend on another midfielder this January. As a result, the player is now seeking an escape route elsewhere, with Les Parisiens preferring to sell him now than lose him for nothing in the summer.Pochettino's crew has made a move for Rabiot in an attempt to bolster their midfield. The player was promised a starting role, a bumper wage package, and a signing-on fee. Furthermore, Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura Soccer Uniforms Wholesale , two of his former PSG team-mates, made attempts to lure him but all of that failed. Adrien reportedly sees a move to the north London outfit as a step-down and according to Paris United, he is willing to hold out on his preferred destination: Anfield. The contract rebel, having supported the Reds as a child, sees the Merseyside giant as the only Premier League outfit for him.While Barcelona is not completely out of the picture yet, the Catalan giant will need to raise funds before they can make a move. Meanwhile www.thetopsoccer.com/croatia , Liverpool could swoop in and beat the Spanish giant to this signing should they make a concrete bid. HUESCA, Spain (AP) — Athletic Bilbao defeated last-place Huesca 1-0 on Monday to keep momentum from a draw against leader Barcelona and open a comfortable gap to the relegation zone in the Spanish league.The away victory, coming a week after a 0-0 draw against Barcelona at home, moved Athletic into 11th place, seven points from safety.Raul Garcia scored the winner by converting a 19th-minute penalty kick at El Alcoraz Stadium.“We knew we had to win to keep a good distance from the bottom of the standings,” Garcia said.Huesca had won two in a row and had not conceded in three straight league matches. It has 18 points from 24 matches and is six points from Celta Vigo Cheap Egypt Soccer Jerseys , the first team outside the relegation zone.The match was briefly interrupted in stoppage time when the remote cam over the field was hit by a punt from Athletic goalkeeper Iago Herrerin, who did the same thing in a match against Espanyol last year.Defending champion Barcelona has a seven-point lead over Atletico Madrid at the top of the standings with Real Madrid two points behind its city rival.

The "touch pass" version of the Jet Sweep has been abundant in college football for a few years now Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey Stitched , and can be seen making its way into the NFL:Plays like this are an easy way to get a speedy..."The “touch pass” version of the Jet Sweep has been abundant in college football for a few years now, and can be seen making its way into the NFL:Plays like this are an easy way to get a speedy player the ball on the run, and they go into the box score as a an easy completion for your quarterback.Against the Baltimore Ravens, the Browns ran a play action pass off of this look, utilizing the same pre-snap motion to pull the Ravens’ secondary apart before throwing it deep. QB Baker Mayfield faked the touch pass to RB Duke Johnson who came in motion, and threw to a wide-open Jarvis Landry who was streaking down the seam as a part of a 4 verts concept.But this particular fake was nothing I’ve ever seen before: Baker actually tossed the ball...to himself. Here’s a look at the play:It’s no coincidence that Baker recreated a Brett Favre photo for draft day Youth Duke Johnson Jersey , as these kinds of ad-libbed fakes are straight out of the Favre playbook. Hopefully we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg when it comes to creative Mayfield ball fakes because they are fun, creative, and they seem to be effective as well.Tyrod Taylor is what he has always been Tyrod Taylor is the best bridge quarterback the Cleveland Browns have employed since Gary Danielson in 1985. The Tyrod Taylor that was on the field Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium is also likely going to be the Tyrod Taylor that Browns fans will see all season, which doesn’t negate the opening sentence.While the weather certainly played a factor as Taylor completed just 37.5 percent of his passes (15-of-40), that shouldn’t make fans believe that a different Taylor will line up under center next week against the New Orleans Saints. Taylor under threw several passes against the Pittsburgh Steelers, was hesitant to take chances down the field and looked to run rather than wait for a play to develop. And when he did wait Duke Johnson Jersey Stitched , he often waited too long, which helped contribute to him taking seven sacks on the day. (Not to give the offensive line a pass, but you can’t hang all those sacks on those guys.)But Taylor also showed his toughness and, despite things not going the Browns way, never gave up. That may not sound like much, but when his teammates see Taylor pick himself up and keep attacking Youth Jaelen Strong Jersey , that is contagious. It is also part of being a leader at the quarterback position.That leadership was on display following the game as Taylor did not blame the weather or point fingers for his struggles (a lesson his head coach could learn from), according to clevelandbrowns.com:Basically, in just his first regular season game with the team, Taylor gave Browns fans a view of everything he is and is not as a quarterback. His numbers, most notably his completion percentage, will rise in the coming weeks Jaelen Strong Jersey Stitched , but he will still take sacks and still not take chances with the ball.Taylor has been in the NFL for eight years now, and at this point in his career he is what he is as a quarterback. To expect him to be anything else is not being realistic.

Carson Wentz shook off rust and defenders.Wentz threw a touchdown pass on his first drive in nine months Quincy Wilson Jerseys 2019 , Wendell Smallwood ran in from the 4 for the go-ahead score and the Philadelphia Eagles held on for a 20-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday."It was a long time coming," Wentz said after playing his first game since he tore two ligaments in his left knee last Dec. 10. "It felt great."Adam Vinatieri tied Morten Andersen's career record of 565 field goals by connecting on all three tries, but the Colts (1-2) couldn't take advantage of two turnovers by Wentz inside the 20 in the second half."I like to step out there and kick field goals," Vinatieri said, "but it's better kicking extra points, that's for sure."The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles (2-1) needed two defensive stops against Andrew Luck in the final 90 seconds.Indy had a first down at the Eagles 11 and two cracks from the 4, but Luck's pass to T.Y. Hilton sailed over his shoulder in the left corner of the end zone on third down and Derek Barnett sacked Luck on fourth down.The Colts got the ball again at their 11 with 39 seconds remaining but couldn't reach midfield. Jacoby Brissett threw a desperation pass on the final play that fell incomplete."We knew we fell short in the red zone," Luck said. "Our guys gave us a chance at the end. What else can you ask on the road against the defending Super Bowl champs."Wentz engineered the winning drive with precise passes and nifty moves. Wentz eluded a sack and threw a 10-yard pass to Nelson Agholor White Tarell Basham Jersey , who hurdled for a first down on third-and-9 to extend the drive at the Colts 26.Four plays later, Smallwood scored to make it 20-16."That was huge," Wentz said.Fans welcomed back Wentz with a standing ovation when he ran through the tunnel during introductions.On a wet, soggy field, Wentz showed no effects of the injury at the start. He misfired on his first pass, then connected over the middle to Zach Ertz and kept going. Running a no-huddle offense, Wentz drove the Eagles 79 yards in 12 plays and capped it with a 13-yard TD pass to Dallas Goedert for a 7-0 lead.Wentz was sacked five times, scrambled three times and dove for a first down on one of his runs."It felt like riding a bike Tarell Basham Jersey 2019 , get hit and pop back up again," he said.But the offense couldn't get much going until the fourth quarter. Wentz nearly gave the Colts the game.First, he stared down Ertz and floated a pass that was picked by Anthony Walker and returned to the Eagles 16. But the Colts only managed a 31-yarder by Vinatieri that gave them a 13-10 lead.After Jake Elliott answered with a 24-yarder on the following drive, Margus Hunt knocked the ball out of Wentz's hands and recovered the fumble at the Eagles 13. Philadelphia's defense again held and Vinatieri made a 28-yard field goal to give Indianapolis a 16-13 lead."Those are things that can't happen," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said of the turnovers. "Overall, for his first time back, not so bad."Luck threw a 5-yard TD pass to Ryan Grant to tie it 7-7 after Elliott missed a 55-yard field goal wide left.QB COMPARISONColts: Luck was 25 of 40 for 164 yards, one TDEagles: Wentz finished 25 of 37 for 255 yards Indianapolis Colts Drew Forbes Jersey , one TD and one pick.SPOILED RETURNColts coach Frank Reich was Philadelphia's offensive coordinator the previous two seasons.DECORATED BACKUPWentz's return sent Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles back to the sideline. Foles replaced Wentz in Week 14 and led the Eagles to their first NFL title since 1960.NFL DEBUTUndrafted rookie Josh Adams, the fifth-leading rusher in Notre Dame history, had 30 yards rushing on six carries for the Eagles. He was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week.BACK SCRAMBLIN'Wentz avoided a sack, ran toward the sideline and dove out of bounds for a first down on third-and-6 on the final drive of the first half. ...

The Colts play on Thursday night after playing a full 70 minutes on Sunday. The extra 34 snaps prompted coach Frank Reich to subject his players to less work in advance of the prime-time game at New England.On both Monday and Tuesday, Reich replaced practices with walkthroughs.鈥淥riginally we [were] going to practice, but given the short week and the amount of plays [with] the overtime, [it鈥檚] most important to take care of the guys physically and just really get focused in mentally on what we鈥檙e gonna do Womens Drew Forbes 2019 Jersey ,” Reich said. “So looking forward to getting on the road, and a good test ahead of us.鈥滱lthough the final injury designations have yet to be made, it sounds like Reich is resigned to not having receiver T.Y. Hilton on Thursday. He suffered sternum and hamstring injuries on Sunday against the Texans.鈥淎s far as game planning, we have a lot of confidence in the next guy up,鈥?Reich said. 鈥淚 think that showed this past week. When T.Y. went out, we still were able to move the ball well. Credit to the guys, and really the whole offense did a good job == Andrew [Luck] did a phenomenal job of creating plays and getting the ball to those players.聽So we鈥檒l miss T.Y., but at the same time Indianapolis Colts Marvell Tell Jersey , you鈥檝e just got to have the next-man-up mentality.”Whether it’s the original man or the next man, they’ll need every man and then some to have a shot at winning in New England.

Saints receiver Michael Thomas went back in time for his touchdown celebration Sunday Tony Dorsett Jersey 2019 , and Titans safety Kevin Byard followed Monday night.Byard danced on the midfield star at AT&T Stadium after his end zone interception. He was joined by teammates. 49ers receiver Terrell Owens did the original midfield star celebration in 2000. He promptly was tackled by Cowboys safety George Teague. Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones shoved Byard in the back, although Byard was expecting to have his head knocked off. Former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, now an ESPN analyst, called it disrespectful White Terrell Owens Jersey , as did Jones. Titans coach Mike Vrabel agreed.“That’s not what we want as an organization. That’s not what I want as a head coach,” Vrabel said Tuesday, via video posted by Paul Kuharsky of paulkuharsky.com. “I want our guys to play as hard as they possibly can, for each other Terrell Owens Jersey 2019 , between the whistles, as physical, as aggressive, as clean as they possibly can. I get that there’s things that cross the line between whistles. Once the whistle blows Dallas Cowboys Joe Jackson Jersey , celebrate with a teammate. Find somebody else in a Titans uniform. Find a coach. Celebrate with them. But we don’t need to do that. That’s not what we want to do. I talked to Kevin this morning. I’ll talk to the team again tomorrow. That goes for a lot of guys. That’s not what I want. If that’s what they want, then we see it very differently.”Although officials didn’t penalize Byard, he is subject to an NFL fine as the rule book specifically covers stomping on a team logo. Friday has been full of Scott Linehan news as the Dallas Cowboys officially moved on from their offensive coordinator. Linehan had five years of service with the Cowboys which is quite a lot. There are a lot of relationships built in half a decade.Upon departure, Linehan issued a statement through the Cowboys. He bids farewell and seems at peace with the decision.Linehan notes that he and Jason Garrett spoke on Wednesday. This lines up with the timeline reported in the mysterious “prominent” offensive assistant coach that the Cowboys were in discussions with. It would make sense that they were seeking out a new offensive coordinator.Here’s to the best being ahead for Scott Linehan. There were definitely good times during his days in Dallas Womens Joe Jackson 2019 Jersey , and we’ll all always have the magical seasons of 2014 and 2016. Nobody ever wants to see someone get fired, but sometimes change is necessary.

A big comeback. A blown call. And New Orleans Saints Erik McCoy Jersey , finally, a booming kick that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl.After rallying from an early 13-0 deficit, the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints with Greg Zuerlein‘s 57-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game Sunday 鈥?an outcome that might not have been possible without an egregious mistake by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation.Los Angeles cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman committed聽a blatant interference penalty聽with a helmet-to-helmet hit on Tommylee Lewis well before the pass arrived inside the 5, forcing the Saints to settle for Wil Lutz‘s 31-yard field goal that made it 23-20 with 1:41 left in regulation.“Came to the sideline, looked at the football gods and was like, ‘Thank you,'” Robey-Coleman said. “I got away with one tonight.”After the no-call, Jared Goff had enough time to lead the Rams down the field for Zuerlein’s tying field goal,聽a 48-yarder聽with 15 seconds remaining.New Orleans won the coin toss and got the ball first in overtime. But, with Dante Fowler Jr. in his face and striking his arm, Drew Brees fluttered up a pass that was picked off by John Johnson III, who was able to聽hang on to the interception聽while stumbling backward. Johnson hopped up and celebrated by doing with the “Choppa Style” dance popularized by New Orleans rapper Choppa, whose namesake song had become a Saints’ rallying cry and was even performed during the halftime show.The Rams weren’t able to do much offensively, but it didn’t matter. Zuerlein聽booted through the winning field goal聽from just inside midfield with plenty of room to spare. The NFL said it the longest game-winning kick in playoff history.“It’s unbelievable, man. I can’t put it into words,” said Goff, who at 24 became the youngest quarterback to win an NFC title. “The defense played the way they did to force it to overtime. The defense gets a pick and Greg makes a 57-yarder to win it. That was good from about 70. Unbelievable.”The Superdome, which had been in uproar all afternoon, suddenly turned eerily silent. It was the first home playoff loss for the Saints with Brees and coach Sean Payton, who and been 6-0 in those games since their pairing began in 2006.This one really hurt.If the pass interference penalty had been called, the Saints could’ve run most of the time off the clock to set up a winning field goal from chip-shot range.“Being that it happened right there in front of the person who would be the one to make the call, and everyone in the stands saw it, everyone watching at home on TV saw it Womens Erik McCoy 2019 Jersey , that makes it even more difficult to take,” Brees said. “Because of this, I’m sure there will be a lot of talk about reviewing penalties, perhaps game-changing penalties.”The Rams (15-3) and their 32-year-old coach, Sean McVay, capped聽a remarkable risesince moving back to Los Angeles three years ago. The team will be appearing in its first Super Bowl since the 2001 season, when the “Greatest Show on Turf” was still in St. Louis.The team hasn’t won an NFL title in Los Angeles since 1951, well before the Super Bowl era. The team moved to St. Louis in 1995, only to return to Southern California two decades later.“Shoot, I don’t even know what day it is,” McVay said. “All I know is we’re NFC champs, baby!”It was another bitter end for the Saints, who lost the previous season in the divisional round on the “Minnesota Miracle” 鈥?the Vikings’ long touchdown pass on the final play of the game.This time, New Orleans (14-4) couldn’t hang on to the lead or overcome that officiating mistake.Payton said he talked to the NFL office after the game and was told that Robey-Coleman should have been flagged.“Not only was it interference, it was helmet to helmet,” the coach said. “”I don’t know if there was ever a more obvious pass interference.”The Saints were on the verge of blowing out the Rams, scoring on their first three possessions and taking advantage of an interception when Todd Gurley let a pass slip through his hands.Then a fake punt early in the second quarter gave Los Angeles its initial first down of the game. Sparked by that gutsy call, the Rams finally came to life offensively and drove into position for the first of four field goals by Zuerlein.Gurley made it 13-10 at halftime on a 6-yard touchdown run just before the intermission.New Orleans restored its double-digit lead on Brees’ 2-yard scoring pass to third-string quarterback Taysom Hill, the first TD catch of the super sub’s career. Goff countered with a 1-yard touchdown toss to Tyler Higbee, setting up a wild fourth quarter.Zuerlein tied the score at 20-all with a 24-yard field goal after McVay passed on a shot at the go-ahead touchdown with fourth-and-goal from inside the 1. A delay of game while lining up for the kick scuttled any thoughts of leaving the offense on the field.BREES’ FUTUREThe 40-year-old Brees made it clear he’s got no plans to retire.“I plan on being here next year and making another run at it,” said Brees, who was denied a shot at adding to the Super Bowl title he won during the 2009 season.He hopes another gut-wrenching loss in the playoffs will spur the team to even greater heights.“Last year really brought us together as a team and strengthened us,” Brees said. “I hope this will too.”INJURY REPORTThe Saints lost tight end Josh Hill to a concussion in the first quarter.Hill was injured after hauling in a 24-yard pass from Brees. While making the tackle New Orleans Saints Erik McCoy Jersey , Los Angeles Rams linebacker Cory Littleton delivered a forearm to Hill’s head.No penalty was called, but Hill staggered off the field to be evaluated by the medical staff. Just before halftime, the Saints announced he was done for the game.The loss of Hill led to a much bigger role in the offense for Garrett Griffin, who spent most of the season on the practice squad. He caught a 5-yard pass for his first career touchdown.UP NEXTThe Rams head to Atlanta in about a week for the Feb. 3 Super Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. They will face either the Kansas City Chiefs or the New England Patriots, who met Sunday night for the AFC title. What a week for Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman.There was a benching during a 24-point loss. Criticism from a former teammate. Biting Twitter barbs from an opposing receiver.What better way to cap it all off than a matchup for his Redskins (2-2) on Sunday against Cam Newton and the visiting Carolina Panthers (3-1), the club that abruptly parted with Norman about 2陆 years ago."Old friends. They're coming to town, and I get to see them and go at each other. They know how I am. Trust me. I know how they are. So it's going to be quite an exciting time," Norman said. "I'm looking forward to them. I know (Newton's) got something special cooked up for us."Norman was coming off an All-Pro season and a Super Bowl appearance when the Panthers put the franchise tag on him in March 2016, a move many figured was a precursor to a long-term deal. Fast-forward six weeks, though, and Carolina rescinded the tag offer, allowing Norman to become an unrestricted free agent.Within a couple of days, he signed a $75 million, five-year contract with Washington. For whatever the reason 鈥?and there are various theories out there 鈥?things have not gone all that well for Norman, who turns 31 in December and is currently up to 19 games in a row without an interception.The downswing culminated in Washington coach Jay Gruden's decision to play a rookie instead of Norman coming out of halftime during a 43-19 loss at New Orleans on Monday night.Then came all sorts of theories about what might be wrong with Norman, from his age (courtesy of Saints receiver Michael Thomas) to his interest in becoming a celebrity (brought up by ex-Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall) to the shift from Carolina's zone coverage to Washington's man-to-man principles (referenced by Panthers coach Ron Rivera).Newton, a friend who participates in Norman's charity volleyball tournament, maintains that QBs still need to be wary of the guy."He's not a person who hesitates to take chances, and that's his gift and his curse," Newton said. "I still go into each and every game pointing out who the impact players are on every defense, and he's definitely one of those players."Here are some things to know about the Panthers and Redskins:COUNT ON CAMA Redskins defense that had zero answers against Drew Brees now goes up against Newton, who is having a so-so season thus far but always comes up big against Washington. The 2015 NFL MVP is 4-0 against the Redskins, with nine TDs and zero INTs Cheap Erik McCoy Youth Jersey , a passer of rating of 115.4 and two rushing scores. "Cam is a beast, man. He can do it all. He can pass. He can run it. He's an extra running back when he's back there," Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said. "They've got a long list of good playmakers, man. So we've got our hands full."ROLL TIDEDefensive linemen Jonathan Allen and Daron Payne played together at Alabama, were first-round draft picks the past two years, and account for nearly half of Washington's sacks this season. "They are two guys that I never have to worry about: 'Hey, hustle. Hey, run to the ball.' These guys are always playing hard, playing fast, playing physical," Gruden said, "and you can build around those two cats for a long time."BAND IS BACKThe Panthers are hoping to get back three-time Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen; he broke his right foot in Week 1. "The band is back," Newton said with a big smile. The QB's favorite target for quite some time, Olsen strung together a trio of 1,000-yard seasons before initially injuring his foot in 2017 and missing nine games. If some wonder whether Olsen might be rushing back, he said: "I wouldn't put myself out there if I couldn't help the team."DAVIS RETURNS, TOOCarolina is counting on linebacker Thomas Davis, who returns from a four-game suspension under the league's policy on performance enhancers to give a big lift to a defense that struggled to pressure the quarterback last week. Davis is the team's all-time leading tackler and joins Luke Kuechly to provide what Gruden called "the best linebacking duo in pro football, in my opinion."AP Sports Writer Steve Reed contributed to this report.

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald have been selected as Sportsmen of the Year for 2018 by the Los Angeles Sports Council.The two NFL stars will be honored at the 14th annual LA Sports Awards Craig Mager Color Rush Jersey , to be held on Monday, March 25 at The Beverly Hilton.LA Sports AwardsLA Sports Awards: LAFC President Tom Penn named 2018 Sports Executive of the YearLA Sports Awards: Chargers' Anthony Lynn named Coach of the YearLA Sports Awards: Snowboarder Chloe Kim selected as 2018 Sportswoman of the YearDuring Rivers' 15th NFL season, he led the Chargers to a 12-4 regular-season record and a berth in the playoffs. Rivers passed for 32 touchdowns and a career-best 105.5 passer rating.Donald, currently in Atlanta preparing for Super Bowl LIII, is considered by many (like Shannon Sharpe, in the video up above) who consider Donald the best player in football. During the 2018 season Jason Verrett Color Rush Jersey , Donald posted 20.5 sacks, 25 tackles for a loss and four force players.He was the only player in the NFL to be unanimously selected first-team All-Pro.The LA Sports Awards also will feature the presentation of the Sportsman, Sportswoman, Coach and Sports Executive of the Year, and a countdown of 2018's Top Ten moments.The banquet will be televised on Fox Sports West/Prime Ticket (air dates TBA). The arrival of rookie Derwin James gave The Chargers another playmaker to add to their talented defense. But the standout performance of James also highlighted a glaring weakness in the bolts..."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections San Diego Chargers Daily LinksSan Diego Chargers NewsSan Diego Chargers OffseasonSan Diego Chargers HistorySan Diego Chargers HumorChargers Draft2019 Chargers Draft Profile: Delaware DB Nasir AdderleyNew,18commentsPSTShareTweetShareShare2019 Chargers Draft Profile: Delaware DB Nasir AdderleyChuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsThe arrival of rookie Derwin James gave The Chargers another playmaker to add to their talented defense. But the standout performance of James also highlighted a glaring weakness in the bolts secondary. Jahleel Addae left much to be desired following his play at free safety this past season. The six-year pro was repeatedly exposed Denzel Perryman Color Rush Jersey , taking bad angles and displaying poor tackling ability in his pursuit of receivers. Addae constantly looked out of place and was a liability to The Chargers defense. Should Los Angeles look to the draft to add more competition to the safety position, Delaware’s Nasir Adderley could be an intriguing option. A three-year starter for the Blue Hens, Adderley is the one of the best small school prospects to enter this year’s draft class. Adderley finished a stellar 2018 season ranking in the top-20 nationally among defensive backs with his career best 87 tackles. He also recorded a team-high four interceptions, seven pass break-ups and one forced fumble. In fact, over the past years, Adderley is the only player in the college football to register over 160 tackles and nine interceptions.At 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds Antonio Gates Color Rush Jersey , Adderley is a versatile prospect with the capability of playing safety at the single-high position or in the box. He shows great instincts and awareness when reading the quarterback anticipating throws and breaking on receiver routes. Adderley has solid read-and react-ability, displaying good closing burst to the ball from off coverage. He possesses the hip fluidity and footwork of a cornerback which allows him to quickly redirect and transition with wide outs.Adderley is high-IQ player that gives effort on every snap, playing with a physical attitude. Not just on defense but on special teams as well. With solid tackling ability, he makes contact on receivers over the middle with good timing. Adderley has a nose for the football and the capability of contending passes at the high point of attack.The Draft Network’s Joe Marino holds the small school prospect in high regards “He should be a high-impact, playmaking starter that is among the pillars of an NFL defense.” Marino said. “Whatever assignment a safety could be tasked with, Adderley has shown the ability and requisite traits needed to fulfill it.”NFL Media’s Daniel Jeremiah released his Top 50 players and ranked Adderley as the No. 27 overall prospect on his board. When he attends the combine later this month Derwin James Color Rush Jersey , he will become the eighth player in Delaware history to receive an invite. Adderley is a player with few weaknesses to his game. Occasionally he can be over aggressive at times when in pursuit of receivers. But most questions stem from his level of competition that he faced in the FCS as well as his limited exposure in man coverage. The Chargers met with Adderley during an impressive week of practice leading up the Senior Bowl.With his rising draft stock leading up to the draft, he is expected to be one of the first safeties off the board in April. If Los Angeles decides to spend another consecutive first-round pick at the safety position, Adderley’s physicality, competitiveness and athleticism could give the Chargers another playmaker to boost their secondary.

The New England Patriots’ loss against the Tennessee Titans did not just see the team outplayed in all three phases Jeremy Hill Color Rush Jersey , but also lose some important pieces to injury: starting left tackle Trent Brown left the game because of a back issue, tight end Dwayne Allen hurt his knee, and Julian Edelman exited due to of an ankle injury suffered on an unsuccessful fourth down attempt in the fourth quarter.While there are no news on Allen just yet, Edelman’s injury is reportedly not considered to be a serious one. Now, there are also good news coming out regarding Brown (via NFL Network’s Mike Giardi):As Giardi notes, Brown was dealing with multiple issues on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans: he left the game in the second quarter because of illness-related issues, and again in the third because of a back injury. He did not return after his second exit. The first-year Patriot, who is in the middle of an outstanding season as Tom Brady’s blindside protector, was therefore limited to just over half of the offensive snaps on the day.Brown being fine is good news for both the Patriots and himself. With the bye week coming up, New England’s starter at left tackle now gets some added rest to get fully healthy again after he missed two practices last week because of an illness. Because of that Brown can further position himself as a hot commodity with unrestricted free agency on the horizon ATLANTA (AP) — The NFL should’ve ended the season two weeks ago.This Super Bowl was a hot mess, really no better than a sloppy preseason game.Tom Brady and the New England Patriots captured their sixth championship Sunday night, an amazing accomplishment that was overshadowed by the ugly way they won it against the stunningly inept Los Angeles Rams.An instant classic?No https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Isaiah-Wynn-Jersey , this was instantly forgettable.The only touchdown finally came when the game was 53 minutes old, the Patriots reaching the end zone on Sony Michel’s 2-yard run after one of the few offensive highlights — Brady’s niftily threaded ball to Rob Gronkowski with three defenders around, resulting in a 29-yard play.It was the only time all evening that either team reached the red zone.That brief burst of offense was enough to carry the Patriots to a 13-3 victory , but this game will be remembered as an unworthy finale to a thrilling season. Certainly not in the same league as that pair of captivating games we witnessed on conference championship weekend. Not even close to the Super Bowl classics that capped off the last two seasonsThose represented the NFL at its HD best.The latest Super Bowl should’ve been broadcast in black and white.It was straight out of the 1950s.“You’ve got to grind it out and find a way,” said Brady, delivering a drab quote that perfectly fit the occasion.Stephen Gostkowski clinched it for the Patriots, barely guiding a 41-yard field goal inside the left upright with 1:12 remaining to make it a two-score game.What a blessing.The last thing anyone needed was the Rams having any chance to send this monstrosity to overtime.Taking nothing away from a stout defensive effort by both teams, this lackluster affair seemed more the result of two offenses that never found their footing — especially the youthful Rams and their 24-year-old quarterback, Jared Goff.There were plenty of silly mistakes, the kind of plays you normally see when teams are working through the kinks coming of training camp. Both teams were flagged for having two men in motion at the same time. The Rams were penalized for a false start when lined up on second down needing less than a yard. One of their better plays was negated by a holding penalty. They even got caught with too many men on the field.“We just played bad today,” running back C.J. Anderson said.With just over a minute to go, after the Rams were called for yet another holding penalty Danny Etling Color Rush Jersey , the press box announcer summed it up best after accidentally leaving his mic on.“Ughhhhhhh,” he moaned, snapping the assembled media out their slumber.It was the lowest-scoring game in Super Bowl history, eclipsing a 21-point snoozer in 1973 when Miami capped its perfect season with an ugly victory over Washington that had least had a bit of comic relief: kicker Garo Yepremian’s ridiculous attempt to throw a pass.When Adam Levine ripped off his shirt during the halftime show, it was quickly apparent that tattoos would far outnumber points in the A-T-L.Come to think of it, Maroon 5 might have benefited the most from this one.Their lame, off-key performance was probably the highlight of the night.The Rams needed until deep into the third quarter to finally surpass 100 yards, on a drive that resulted in their only points. Greg Zuerlein booted a 53-yard field goal that tied the game at 3 with just over two minutes remaining in the period, and it looked like Los Angeles might actually have a chance to pull out a game it had no business winning.After Michel’s TD, Los Angeles gave itself one more chance. Driving briskly into New England territory, the Rams had first down at the 27 when Goff lofted a pass toward the right pylon with Brandin Cooks breaking into the clear. But Patriots second-string safety Duron Harmon, in the game after Patrick Chung sustained what looked to be a broken arm https://www.patriotsfanstore.com , came flying over to level Cooks just as the ball was slipping through the receiver’s hands at the goal line.Cooks conceded afterward that it was a catch he should’ve made, but he was hardly alone in that category.On the very next play, Huron came at Goff on a blitz. The young quarterback flinched with the safety in his face, wobbling up a pass that was easily picked off by Stephon Gilmore.New England drove the other way for the clinching field goal.With eight seconds remaining, the Rams sent on Zuerlein to attempt a 48-yard field goal, knowing the only remote chance they had to force OT was to get three points, pull an onside kick and heave a desperation pass toward the end zone on the final play.Zuerlein was money all season, and especially in the NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints, when he tied it up with a 48-yard field goal and won the game in overtime with a booming 57-yard effort.That was then.This time, Zuerlein’s kick sailed wide left of the upright.Brady kneeled down one more time and it was over.Thankfully.Disney officials dutifully announced that Brady and MVP Julian Edelman would be visiting the Magic Kingdom on Monday.The folks at Mickey Mouse Land might want to reconsider their offer.It’s probably best to just forget this stinker of a Super Bowl.
