SAN ANTONIO -- Even without star forward Kawhi Leonard and veteran point guard Tony Parker, the San Antonio Spurs managed to overcome a 23-point deficit to win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, tying the largest comeback victory thus far this NBA season. The win also ranked as the franchise's third-largest comeback victory under coach Gregg Popovich.
"It was a fine win," Popovich said. "The guys really dug deep, pounded the rock. We kept a great attitude, and they just kept their minds on playing basic basketball and things turned their way. The effort was great, and they played http://www.authenticpanthersstore.com/authentic-27-nick-bjugstad-jersey.html a lot smarter in the second half. They took care of the ball, and just showed a lot of courage. Overall, a great team win."
San Antonio trailed Authentic Kevin Garnett Jersey by 23 points (43-20) with 9:28 remaining in the first half in large part due to a disastrous opening quarter in which the Latrell Sprewell Womens Jersey Spurs turned over the ball seven times while knocking down just six field Bo Horvat Authentic Jersey goals. Veteran Manu Ginobili committed four of those turnovers as San Antonio connected on just 6-of-19 from the floor.
But sympathy never set in for a shorthanded Spurs squad against an Oklahoma City Thunder team featuring a trio of bona fide stars in Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and reigning MVP Russell Westbrook.
"Pop doesn't let you feel sorry for yourself," said power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who scored a game-high 26 points, including a putback off a Danny Green miss with 24.2 seconds remaining to help San Antonio preserve the win.
The 23-point margin was equal to that of the Cavaliers' comeback win over the Knicks on Monday. At the conclusion of Friday's contest, Popovich told ESPN's Doris Burke that the team experienced "an attitude change from 'poor me' to 'screw you.'"
Green certainly served as a catalyst in the effort. Although the injured Leonard receives most of the recognition as San Antonio's best defender, Green is coming off a 2016-17 season in which he was selected to the NBA's all-defensive second team. He looked the part defending Westbrook. Westbrook hit his first two shots of the night, but connected on just 3 of his final 20 attempts, including 1-of-10 when guarded by Green.
"It was a big one for us, a http://www.buccaneersofficialauthentic.com/Authentic-Chris-Godwin-Jersey gutsy one," Green said. "We grinded it out and came back. So it was a lot of fun. Those games are always a good challenge. We came into the league to play in those types of games."
The Spurs started off the second quarter trailing by 14 points and cut that deficit to 7 by halftime. San Antonio finally tied the game at 78 with 38.3 seconds left in the third quarter on a 27-foot jumper by Davis Bertans off a Dejounte Murray assist. "They just came back," Westbrook said. "They played faster and did a good job of getting themselves back in the game."
A Ginobili 3-pointer to start off the fourth quarter gave San Antonio its first lead (81-7 since Green put the Spurs ahead 2-0 just five seconds into the game when they secured the opening tip.
he Thunder trio of Westbrook, Anthony and George started off hitting 8-of-16 in the opening quarter. From the second quarter on, they combined to connect on 11-of-39, and contributed a total of 24 points in the second half. Meanwhile, San Antonio's threesome of Aldridge, Pau Gasol and Ginobili came together for 30 on 8-of-13 shooting in the second half.
"It takes one, two plays, three in a row," Gasol said. "But you've got to start somewhere to turn it around. We knew http://www.officialauthenticpackersstore.com/Nike-Quinten-Rollins-Jersey.html there was a lot of ballgame to be played. So we had still a margin to get back into the game, give ourselves a chance. I think the team showed a lot of heart, a lot of character tonight by not giving up. We fought, and we got rewarded."
Brown's one-handed dagger of a touchdown catch -- ball pressed against his dome as he Womens Tedric Thompson Jersey fell backward -- was so good that the 10-yard score required at least three double takes. Leave it to a prime-time game at home to get Brown, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers back to sizzle status.
After weeks of erratic offense, the Steelers notched their biggest explosion of the season with a commanding second half in a 40-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night. The Steelers (8-2) want home-field advantage in the playoffs. Well, this is how dangerous they http://www.pacersprostore.com/WOMENS-THADDEUS-YOUNG-JERSEY.html can be if they get it.
"It's about time, I guess you could say," guard David DeCastro said. There's something about prime-time games at Heinz Field that spark Big Ben, who now has at least four touchdowns in his past three night games in Pittsburgh. He's 19-3 all time in that setting.
And after a quiet 12 catches and one touchdown over the past three weeks, there was no way Brown would stay quiet for long. He caught 10 passes for 144 yards and posted his second career three-touchdown game.
Despite a curious first-half lull, the Steelers looked like the offense they drew up in the preseason: Taking what's available, Brown weaving through traffic, running back Le'Veon Bell doing a bit of everything, JuJu Smith-Schuster as the intermediate pass-catching option, and receiver Martavis Bryant and tight end Jesse James coming through with timely plays.
The only thing that was off was Bell's modest workload of 12 carries for 46 yards. Bell getting 25 or more carries usually is a recipe for Steelers victories, Cory Joseph Authentic Jersey but such heavy lifting wasn't necessary Thursday, and Bell added nine catches for 57 yards on the night.
This was, by far, Roethlisberger's cleanest game of the season; he mixed no-huddle offense with a more balanced, calculated attack, depending on the mood. Roethlisberger's 30-of-45 passing for 299 yards was a welcome sign for Steelers fans hoping http://www.chicagobears.us.com/WOMENS-MIKE-SINGLETARY-JERSEY.html for more vintage Big Ben moments down the stretch.
Peak offensive performance came at the 1-yard line to start the fourth quarter, when James faked a missed block, Bell faked a rush and Roethlisberger went over the top to a wide-open James for the score. Perfect red zone work.
Roethlisberger challenged his offense to make plays in the second half, himself included. The http://www.officialfootballvikingstore.com/Nike-Nick-Easton-Jersey.html 14-year veteran proceeded to complete 15 of his final 16 passes for 141 yards and three scores, relying on empty sets to get the ball out more quickly.
"I don't care if you're old or young, just someone has to step up and make a play for this team," said Roethlisberger, recalling the halftime talk. "Or else we are going to keep relying on our defense. It is time that we step up and do something. I love the way they all responded."
Brown did the rest with his ninth career game http://www.nflbengalsofficialshop.com/Nike-Jordan-Willis-Jersey.html in which he had at Glenn Hubbard Authentic Jersey least 100 receiving yards and at least two touchdowns, a league high since 2013. His toe-tap catch for Womens Andy Levitre Jersey 23 yards early in the fourth quarter might have been a body blow. But then he went and topped that with a 10-yard score on Titans cornerback Logan Ryan that will go high on Brown's career highlight reel.
"I love it http://www.authentichoustonastros.com/Jeff-Bagwell-Jersey when guys bet against their guy versus me," Brown said. "I'll take that matchup all day." The defense had a few rough moments, but it's hard to complain about forcing Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota's first career four-interception game. Mariota had six interceptions all season before Thursday. The Steelers recorded their first four-pick game since Week 11 of 1997 against the Baltimore Ravens.
DE Cam Heyward (two sacks) was dominant, and CB Corey Peters Authentic Jersey Coty Sensabaugh held up well in replacing Joe Haden, save Rishard Matthews' 75-yard touchdown on a play with no safety help. The Pittsburgh defense contained the run-option with the edge, applied interior pressure with Heyward and Stephon Tuitt, blitzed with linebacker Vince Williams and others, and let coverage do the rest.
The Steelers' message at halftime was clear: Make tackles. "Tuitt and Cam really got all our pressure," linebacker Bud Dupree said. Midway through the third, Titans TE Delanie Walker gashed the Steelers up the middle for a 42-yarder http://www.chargersofficialnflproshop.com/Nike-Max-Tuerk-Jersey.html and a would-be 17-yard touchdown that he dropped in the back of the end zone. That cost the Titans four points, as they settled for a http://www.authenticphilliesstore.com/Authentic-Maikel-Franco-Jersey field goal to cut the lead to 23-17, but the Steelers were rolling at that point.
After all, once the Steelers get out to double-digit leads, they always protect them -- at least with Bell, Brown and Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh has won 26 straight with those three when up by 10 points or more. This resounding win suggests there might be more chances to maintain such leads. "This team can go as far as it wants to go," Sensabaugh said.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Dalvin Cook was in the midst of a breakout rookie campaign when he went down with a season-ending ACL tear in Week 4. He was among the league leaders in rushing yards (354) and had one of the heaviest workloads among all running backs. It led John Stockton Youth jersey to him breaking several of Adrian Peterson's records, including yards in his rookie debut and the amount he racked up in his first three games.
Today, Cook is focused on reaching smaller milestones as he recovers from the surgery performed by orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews in October to repair his injured left knee. Cook spoke to the media for the first time Thursday since he went down against Detroit. Having never dealt with a knee injury in the past, Cook wasn’t sure about the sensation he felt after cutting to avoid a defender in the fourth quarter of that game.
“It was kind of a funny feeling,” Cook said. “I knew something was wrong, but it just wasn’t hurting. I kept telling the trainer, ‘I’m good. Ain’t nothing wrong with me.’ But the next day it got stiffed up. I knew something was wrong and we took care of it.”
Cook says he’ll soon be at the point where he can set goals for himself, like a target date to start testing the strength of his leg, when he’ll be able to go through a full workout, etc. Right now, his benchmarks are simpler, like getting rid of his crutches last week and getting back into the weight room. “I was kind of dead [after lifting], but at the end you feel great,” he said. “I’m around these guys. I feel like I’m back into it, like I never left.”
Cook’s locker is situated next to Teddy Bridgewater's. The fellow Miami native endured over 14 months of rehabilitation from a dislocated knee to get back on the practice field last month. The support he’s provided the young rookie has helped him through the ups and downs of his recovery.
“The process here will challenge your manhood,” Cook said. “Teddy used to call me every day when I had my surgery down in Pensacola.
“He’s been through it. Just to have him in your corner when you’re going through Authentic Malcolm Butler Jersey tough times like this. [Even] if he didn’t go through it, he still knows the right stuff to say to you to get you through the whole process.”
In choosing to do his rehabilitation in Minnesota, Cook has been able to spend time around Sam Bradford, who was moved to IR last week with a knee injury, and see a different side to the reserved quarterback.
‘Down, set, hike’ or call the play, but just to sit there and have a conversation with him, because Sam is a quiet guy ... is good,” he said. “It ain’t good for the both of us to be on the table, but it’s good having conversations with him, just to chat with him.”
Cook’s ACL tear is among a long list of season-ending injuries to top NFL players. Seeing the devastating injuries to those other players -- from Odell Beckham Jr. to Richard Sherman and J.J. Watt to fellow rookie Deshaun Watson -- provides meaningful perspective to the career he chose.
"It’s what we signed up for,” he said. “That’s something I had to realize laying in the bed. It’s part of the game. You’re going to get through it. Game’s going to be here. I’m young. I’m going to heal up. I’m going to be back out there with my team as soon as possible.”
It’s still too early to lay out a timetable for his return, but one thing Cook isn’t worried about is being able to come back with the same speed and skills that made him an early standout. He relies on the guidance Chris Doleman Authentic Jersey of his teammates, including Case Womens Mychal Rivera Jersey Keenum, Latavius Murray and Jeremiah Sirles -- all of whom have recovered from a torn ACL -- for insight on how to best approach his rehab and the mental aspect of overcoming a major injury.
“Truly, in my opinion, I just think I’m going to come back better than ever,” he said. “It’s all about how you attack this Eric Weems Jersey thing. I just feel like it was a blessing in disguise. I probably needed a break from the hits I was taking in college, something like that. I use all this stuff as motivation.”
None of the players receive any of those type of compensations, and if a guy that’s not suiting up can demand those type of things, then I http://www.washingtoncapitalsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Brett-Connolly-Jersey feel like the players should be able to demand those type of things and make as much money as a guy that’s not playing in the NFL.
"Those things really bother me because this business wouldn’t operate without the players. I’ve been in this league for eight http://www.seahawkshopnflofficial.com/WOMENS-LUKE-JOECKEL-JERSEY.html years and the only coach that I really seen understand that and abide by that has been Jim Harbaugh, when it comes to putting the players first.
"In regards to [Goodell’s] contract, I just don’t think that’s respectable, in regards to the players, and just a slap in the face just due to the job that we have. It just, it doesn’t make sense, just because he’s the commissioner that he gets to make that much money and it be guaranteed. No player in this league has that opportunity and I feel like we should."
"He wants guaranteed contracts. Think about the players and theirs also. He wants lifetime medical. Think about the players and theirs also. The jet, he can have that one. I couldn’t care less. I can fly Southwest or Delta. "Think about how hard the negotiation is. That’s my best thing for him. http://www.losangelesramsauthorizedstore.com/eric-dickerson-jersey-elite Taste that, I guess. Now that the rabbit’s got the gun, he’s the rabbit and the owners have the gun.
"I saw somebody said he probably shouldn’t make no higher than the highest-paid player. I think that’s pretty fair. I know owners can just tip him a half-a-million apiece and it’d still be frickin’ amazing. But he’s running a business, he’s a CEO, he’s making them millions, billions of dollars. So he can kind of access that salary, whether they pay him that salary or they Kendell Beckwith Youth jersey pay him in bonuses."
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Leonard Fournette likes it hot. He'll take a steamy summer day on the Louisiana bayou over any other kind of weather. Especially what he's going to see on Sunday in Cleveland.
The Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back wants no part of the conditions The Weather Channel is forecasting for FirstEngergy Stadium: temperatures in the 30s, 25-35 mph winds, 90 percent chance of snow. "I hate the cold, period," Fournette said. Jamal Crawford Authentic Jersey "I sleep in the heat. That's just how I grew up."
Fournette grew up in New Orleans and played at LSU so his cold-weather football experience is limited to just one game: The Tigers' 17-0 loss at Arkansas on Nov. 15, 2014 in Fournette's freshman season. It was 33 degrees at kickoff and Fournette finished with 9 yards on five carries.
He will have a significantly higher workload on Sunday against the Browns (0-9). Fournette is coming off the worst game of his brief career (33 yards on 17 carries) and tweaked his right ankle in the fourth quarter of last Sunday's 20-17 overtime victory against the Los Angeles Chargers. It's the same ankle he injured against the Los Angeles Rams on Oct. 15 and Fournette said he's going to have to manage it http://www.authenticrangersstore.com/joe-kocur-jersey_c-452.html the rest of the season. It won't keep him from playing, he said.
"It's something I'll deal with," Fournette said. "Like I said, it doesn't bother me. "It's time [the best thing for it to heal] and being [in the middle of the season] I don't have a lot of Chris Conner Authentic Jersey time, so http://www.lionsnflofficialprostore.com/YOUTH+SAM+MARTIN+JERSEY just playing with it, that's all."
Fournette, who dropped one spot to seventh in the NFL in rushing (629 yards), is much more concerned about the weather than his ankle, though. He's the opposite of teammate A.J. Bouye, who said Wednesday that he's excited about playing in the cold.
"The little things [are what bother him the most]," Fournette said. "You take a little hit and it hurts. You're falling ... I wouldn't mind if it wasn't cold. I have to get ready, that's all."
No, it won’t be a weekly will-he-or-won’t-he return from his broken collarbone like it was in 2013, but after Rodgers was seen Wednesday doing some work off to the side during practice, it at least piqued the interest of those wondering if the Green Bay Packers quarterback will be ready to play when he’s first eligible to come off injured reserve in Week 15. “I think he’s making really good progress,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday. “I know the training staff and the strength and conditioning staff are very pleased with where he is. He’s moving right along
The rules of injured reserve require a player to sit out practice for at least six weeks and not play for at least a total of eight weeks. Rodgers went on injured reserve Oct. 20 -- a Friday -- meaning the earliest he could practice is Dec. 1. The Packers don’t practice on Fridays, so his actual first session wouldn’t be until Dec. 2, when the Packers hold their brief day-before-the-game practice in advance of the Dec. 3 game against Tampa Bay.
Rodgers then could be activated off injured reserve -- they’re holding Patrick Roy Jersey one of their two designated-to-return tags for him -- on Dec. 15, two days before the Week 15 game at Carolina.
But Rodgers isn’t looking that far ahead. In his only extended session with reporters following surgery, he said he would come back only if his collarbone was completely healed. Rodgers underwent surgery on Oct. 19 to have plates and screws inserted to stabilize his broken right clavicle.
“It was just http://www.bearsofficialsstore.com/Pat_Odonnell_Jersey_Cheap good being back on the practice field,” Rodgers said in a text message Wednesday to ESPN Wisconsin’s Jason Wilde. “Schedule hasn’t changed. Out eight weeks. Only back if it’s completely healed.” When Rodgers broke his left clavicle in 2013, the Packers did not place him on injured reserve. He threw for several Jaquiski Tartt Womens Jersey weeks before he was finally cleared to return.
OK, time for trades and free-agent signings! Awards season is over and the MVP winners are Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins and Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros. Congrats to both of them on their outstanding seasons. They are deserving winners; we simply don't get crazy awards results like we did a decade ago. The voters have learned and adapted and vote with more knowledge than they once did.
The National League MVP vote promised to be a chaotic result and that's what we got with Stanton edging out Joey Votto by two points (302 to 300) in the fourth-closest vote ever. Six different players received first-place votes, seven different players finished in the top three on somebody's ballot and Stanton and Votto finished one-two despite both playing on losing teams. Stanton became just the seventh MVP winner from a losing team, joining Ernie Banks (twice), Andre Dawson, Cal Ripken, Alex Rodriguez and Mike Trout.
In dissecting the voting results, if there's any consolation for Votto it's that there wasn't a weird, rogue ballot that changed the Clyde Drexler Authentic Jersey results. He and Stanton both received 10 first-place votes -- that's important since a first-place vote is worth 14 points and a second-place vote is worth nine points. Stanton beat out Votto by receiving 10 second-place votes to nine for Votto and five third-place votes to four for Votto. Stanton, Womens Teemu Selanne Jersey however, was placed sixth on one ballot while Votto was no lower than fifth, so it was incremental placements that allowed Stanton to win.
The one vote that was a little odd was MLB.com's Mark Bowman giving Kris Bryant his lone first-place vote -- not that Derick Brassard Womens Jersey Bryant didn't have an excellent season, but he once again hit very poorly in high-leverage situations (.185) -- and was the only voter to put Bryant first or second. But Bowman had Stanton second and Votto third, so Votto wins only if he leapfrogs Stanton into first place. Still, we were this close to the second tie in MVP history: If Bowman or another voter had simply put Votto second and Stanton third instead of vice-versa, both finish at 301 points.
One thing that's worth pointing out with a vote this close is that while the voting process is designed to be fair -- there are two voters from each local chapter of the BBWAA -- in some instances the representative for a chapter is a national writer rather than a local beat http://www.authenticnikeseahawkshop.com/george-fant-jersey-for-sale-c-12.html guy. The point there is that the beat guys may tend to show a little favoritism for their candidate.
In this case, the voters in the Miami and Cincinnati chapters were all local writers. The two Miami voters were Joe Frisaro of MLB.com and Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel. Both of them had Stanton first and Votto third. The two Cincinnati voters were C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer and Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. Both of them had Votto first. Rosecrans had Stanton second and Sheldon had him third, so Stanton received one more point from the Cincinnati writers than Votto received from the Miami writers.
Anyway, Stanton mashed 59 home runs, not just http://www.officialphiladelphiaflyers.com/Adidas-Ivan-Provorov-Jersey because he was finally healthy for an entire season, but because of a crucial in-season change to his batting stance. In June, he changed from a straight-up stance to a closed one, with his left foot closer to home plate. This dramatically improved his plate coverage. As Mark Simon reports, Stanton hit .267 and slugged .541 on outside pitches, a 34-point jump in batting average and 100-point jump in slugging percentage from 2016. From June 19 to the end of the season, Stanton hit .284/.388/.695 with 42 home runs in 93 games. Wow.
1979 NL: Willie Stargell and Keith Hernandez tie. This was a weird vote because Stargell won basically on his intangibles as the clubhouse leader -- probably the last player to win an MVP with that as a major consideration. Hernandez led in WAR, 7.6 to 2.5, but Stargell's Pirates won the division with Stargell famously handing out his gold stars like stickers on a college football helmet. Stargell received 10 first-place votes to four for Hernandez, so he was obviously much lower or left off some ballots.
1947 AL: Joe DiMaggio beats Ted Williams, 202 points to 201. Williams led in WAR, 9.9 to 4.8, while winning the Triple Crown. The Yankees won the pennant. One voter left Williams off his ballot, and Williams falsely accused Boston Glove writer Mel Webb of the misdeed, a legend that then persisted for decades. Webb didn't have a vote that year and all three Boston writers put
Williams first. As Glenn Stout reported in his book "Red Sox http://www.officialbuffalosabres.com/Adidas-Jason-Kasdorf-Jersey Century," it was a writer from the Midwest who didn't include Williams. In fact, The Sporting News would reveal that the results were made available to the writers a week before they announced and some used that information to wager on the results. Ah, the good old days.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Erik Haula scored http://www.authenticbrewershop.com/authentic-7-eric-thames-jersey.html the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Vancouver Canucks 5-2 on Johan Larsson Womens Jersey Thursday night. Haula, David Perron, Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson each had a goal and an assist, and Reilly Smith added an empty-netter. Vegas improved to 11-6-1 in its debut season.
Maxime Lagace made his ninth straight start and had 19 saves after giving up seven goals on 29 shots in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers. Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat scored for Vancouver. Jacob Markstrom made 25 stops.
The teams were sent to the locker rooms with under a minute left in the second period when a fan seated in one Lars Eller Youth jersey of the corners was hit in the head by an errant puck. One of the officials on the ice threw towels to nearby spectators to help with the bleeding, and the fan was eventually taken away on a stretcher.
There was no immediate update from the Canucks on the fan's status. The teams played the final 59.7 seconds of the period on a fresh sheet of ice before switching ends for the http://www.officialvikingsjerseysstore.com/Marcus_Sherels_Jersey_Cheap third. After blowing a 2-0 lead in the second period, the Golden Knights went back in front at 6:27 of the third when James Neal stripped Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson behind the net and passed to Perron, who quickly fed Haula across the top of the crease for his sixth goal of the season.
Perron has two goals and seven assists during a six-game point streak, while Haula has four goals and four assists in his last six contests. Vancouver didn't offer much in the way of an attack for the majority of the night. The Canucks had a chance off Boeser's stick with under seven minutes to go that Lagace got a pad on.
Marchessault put the game out of reach with 3:05 left when he jumped on Derrick Pouliot's turnover before beating Markstrom low for his fifth. Down 2-0 after a sluggish first period, Canucks coach Travis Green shook up his lines in the second, and got some immediate results.
Boeser scored his sixth of the year at 12:04 after Vegas center Oscar Lindberg's pass in the slot went right to the rookie winger, who made no mistake past a surprised Lagace. The Canucks evened things with 2:42 left http://www.footballauthenticproshop.com/miami-dolphins-c-1625_1674.html in the period when Thomas Vanek's partially blocked shot dribbled toward the Golden Knights' crease. Vancouver forward Sam Gagner kicked the puck to Horvat, and he slid his eighth past Lagace.
The two points are the important thing," Landeskog said. "We knew this was a big game for us. We hadn't played in a while and the Sweden trip didn't go as well as we wanted."
Colorado was playing at home for the first time in two weeks and for just the fifth time overall in that span. The gap included a trip to Sweden to play two games against Ottawa Authentic Rene Bourque Jersey last weekend and Matt Duchene, traded by the Avalanche to the Senators on Nov. 5.
Colorado got four players and three draft picks in the three-way deal, and two of those players were on the ice Thursday. Sam Girard, a 19-year-old defenseman, got an assist on MacKinnon's goal at the Jacob McQuaide Womens Jersey end of the first period.
Colorado's other new rookie, center Vladislav Kamenev, made his Avalanche debut but left in the second period with a broken arm sustained on a check by Washington defenseman Brooks Orpik.
"You hate to see that," Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. "A kid coming up and getting a good opportunity to jump in and he's new to the organization. I know he really wants to impress. He's a little bit down in the dumps. He suffered a pretty bad injury and he's going to miss some time." Phillip Grubauer made 22 saves and Brett Connolly and Evg
Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals coasted to his third Cy Young Award, winning Wednesday for the second straight year in the National League.
Scherzer breezed past Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw and Nationals teammate Stephen Strasburg, drawing 27 of the 30 first-place votes in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. "Yes!'' Scherzer shouted, thrusting his arms up when the honor was announced on MLB Network.
The reaction was in keeping with his expressive reputation. He showed that intensity often this year, whether he was cursing under his breath like a madman during his delivery or demanding -- also with expletives -- that now-former Nationals manager Dusty Baker leave him in the game.
The 33-year-old righty earned the NL honor http://www.footballredskinsprostore.com/Josh_Norman_Jersey_Cheap last year with Washington and the 2013 American League prize with the Authentic Nick Vannett Jersey Detroit Tigers. Scherzer became the 10th pitcher with at least three Cy Youngs. Among http://www.raidersnflproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JUSTIN_ELLIS_JERSEY.html the other nine, only Kershaw and Roger Clemens aren't in the Baseball Hall of Fame; Kershaw is not yet eligible.
"That's why I'm drinking a lot of champagne tonight,'' Scherzer said. Scherzer led the National League this past season with 268 strikeouts and ranked second in ERA (2.51) and fourth in wins (16) for the NL East champion Nationals. "This one is special,'' he said. "When you start talking about winning three times, I can't even comprehend it at this point.''
In an era noted for declining pitcher durability, Scherzer eclipsed 200 innings for the fifth straight season. He had to overcome a variety of ailments to get there, and Washington's training staff was high on his thank-you list. "What more can you say about Max?" said Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo. "To have taken home this award three times already in his career, to be among the shortest of lists when it comes to three-time winners, and an even shorter list of those who've won the award in both leagues, you realize just how special a pitcher we're lucky enough to watch every fifth day."Yes!''

He has made 194 consecutive starts, including postseason games, dating back to when he took over as the team's starter in the 2006 season. Coach Anthony Lynn said Rivers
is doing well, and as his health improves, his workload will increase. Reserve quarterback Kellen Clemens was asked about the possibility of starting Sunday in place of Rivers and had this to say: "In the backup position you prepare the same way every week. You enjoy playing, but I understand my role. I'm here to help Philip and help this team in any capacity possible." -- Eric D. Williams
Oakland Raiders Sure, David Amerson was only the No. 115-ranked cornerback out of 115 cornerbacks to have played at least 100 pass snaps in passer rating allowed entering last weekend, but Amerson is still considered an upgrade for the Raiders from what they've been trotting out. And last week's bye seemingly did little to help him heal up from the foot injury
that has cost him the previous two games. Amerson didn't participate in practice Wednesday -- he ran with trainers off to the side during the open-media window -- and the Raiders' secondary is already shorthanded with rookie Gareon Conley being placed on injured reserve Monday. Oh, and Oakland faces the Patriots and their top-ranked overall and passing offense in the thin-air of Mexico City come Sunday. Paging Sean Smith, Dexter McDonald and TJ Carrie again, then. -- Paul Gutierrez
The database at Pro Football Focus has few limits, and we're able to dig far deeper into Shane Ray Jersey specific traits and facets of the game using our years of data sets.
Here, we dig into some of those traits and tell you who the best players are across a variety of different categories, from the most efficient tackler in the league, to the best quarterback throwing a go route. It's our list of the NFL's best performer in every category you can think of -- for the second Shane Ray Jersey year in a row -- using our stats.
After leading all quarterbacks with a 98.0 overall grade last season, Brady is at it again with the top overall grade among offensive players at 93.8. He has continued to evolve his skill set in recent years,
extending plays and making more downfield throws outside of structure while also improving his work when facing pressure. Brady has the top PFF grade at both the intermediate (10 to 19 yards) and deep (20-plus yards) level, as the New England offense has been more aggressive throwing down the field this season, and Brady continues to run it with accuracy and precision.
The rookie has been dominant so far, even in the face of some suspect blocking. He leads the NFL with 56 broken tackles, 21 more than any other back, and is averaging http://www.authenticangelsshop.com/authentic-20-bud-norris-jersey.html 3.2 yards per carry after first contact. What really separates Hunt is his ability to make the same plays in the passing game. He's the only back in the league with 10 or more broken tackles on the ground and as a receiver.
Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Rams over Vikings. I love the matchup here with Sean McVay's offense versus the Vikings' defense under Mike Zimmer. High-level coaching. But I'll go with McVay in this one to to dial up some early scoring opportunities for quarterback Jared Goff before Aaron Donald wrecks this thing up front to close out a road win for the Rams.
Mike Clay, NFL writer: Texans over the Cardinals. Arizona is Shane Ray Jersey the early favorite in a game that will feature Tom Savage against either Drew Stanton or Blaine Gabbert. Yes, J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Deshaun Watson are out, but Houston still has enough defensive talent to give them the edge at NRG Stadium. I'll take the Texans by a field goal in this barnburner.
ankle) and outside linebacker James Harrison (back) are all questionable for Thursday's game against the Titans. All three practiced in limited capacity this week, but the short turnaround affects their probability. The Steelers aren't rushing Harrison back, knowing they'll need him for the playoffs. "[Mitchell] has a chance, and we'll leave the light on for him," coach Mike Tomlin said. "Same with Vance McDonald." -- Jeremy Fowler
Houston Texans The Texans expect to be without wide receiver Will Fuller on Sunday against the Cardinals after he injured his ribs in Week 10 against the Rams. Fuller got injured while attempting to catch a short pass in the middle of the field. After the game, Fuller said he felt OK despite being sore, but didn't practice Wednesday. -- Sarah Barshop
Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Jacoby Brissett will spend the bye in the concussion protocol after suffering the injury late in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers. Brissett didn't miss any snaps during the game because he was evaluated and cleared to return.
It wasn't until after the game that he started having concussion symptoms. The Colts, who defended their medical staff on its decision to clear Brissett to return to the game, are hopeful that having two weeks in between games will be enough time for the quarterback to get healthy. Scott Tolzien, who was benched after throwing two interceptions in Week 1 against the Rams, will start against the Titans in Week 12 if Brissett isn't cleared to return by then. -- Mike Wells
Jacksonville Jaguars The Jaguars went from relatively healthy to having six players miss practice Wednesday, including two offensive linemen -- right tackle Jermey Parnell and left guard Patrick Omameh. They're critical to the Jags' run game, which ranks first in the league. They were out last week and the offensive line played its worst game of the season. http://www.authenticcapitalshop.com/authentic-21-lucas-johansen-jersey.html The Jaguars do not want to have quarterback Blake Bortles throw it 50 times against the Browns in bad weather, so getting those two back ASAP is the No. Montee Ball Jersey 1 priority. -- Mike DiRocco
Tennessee Titans The Titans don't have any players with injury designations ahead of Thursday night's showdown with the Steelers. Quarterback Marcus Mariota suffered a sore left shoulder and sprained http://www.officialfootballfalconstore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_LEVINE_TOILOLO_JERSEY.html ankle Sunday, so that could be something to watch if he gets hit or twisted in a way that affects those areas, but I expect him to be mobile and effective. Tight end Delanie Walker (wrist) is also good to go. -- Cameron Wolfe
AFC West Denver Broncos Two of the three tight ends on the Broncos' roster miss practice Wednesday with injuries, which could limit what they can do as far as personnel groupings in Sunday's game against the Bengals. A.J. Derby (shoulder) and Jeff Heuerman (knee) were held out of Wednesday's practice as Virgil Green Womens Montee Ball Jersey was the only healthy tight end on the active roster to participate.
Derby has been the http://www.detroitredwingsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Brendan-Shanahan-Jersey main receiving option at the position to this point with 19 catches and two touchdowns. Green and Heuerman have combined for just 15 catches this season. Derby and Heuerman will be question marks as the week progresses. It could force the Broncos to play out of a three-wide receiver set even more than they have, and they've struggled to protect the passer out of that grouping so far this season. -- Jeff Legwold
Starter Dee Ford and veteran Tamba Hali didn't practice Wednesday, raising the issue of whether the Chiefs will have enough depth at outside linebacker Sunday against the Giants. Ford has a back injury that has plagued him Womens Montee Ball Jersey most of the season,
so it wouldn't be much of a surprise if he couldn't play this week. Hali has sore knees that prevented him from practicing most of last season, but he was able to play in Womens Montee Ball Jersey all 16 games. If neither plays Sunday, the http://www.chargersshopnfl.com/Authentic-Tre-Boston-Jersey Chiefs are left with Justin Houston, Frank Zombo and rookie Tanoh Kpassagnon, who is still learning his new position after playing defensive line in college. -- Adam Teicher
back C.J. Prosise -- who both went on IR this week -- the Seahawks had five other players unable to finish last week's game against Arizona because of injuries. Coach Pete Carroll said safety Kam Chancellor's status wouldn't be known until doctors
evaluate the neck stinger he suffered Thursday night. Carroll was mum on how Duane Brown is progressing from a sprained ankle, Chris Baker Youth jersey so his availability for Monday night's game against Atlanta is also uncertain. One thing is for sure: Seattle could really use Brown after Adrian Clayborn's six-sack field day against Dallas' backup left tackles Sunday. -- Brady Henderson
AFC East Buffalo Bills Defensive end Jerry Hughes left last week's loss http://www.authenticbluejaysstore.com/Authentic-Russell-Martin-Jersey to the Saints with a shin/calf injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday. If Hughes cannot return to practice and make the trip this weekend to L.A. to play the Chargers, the Bills will be left with Shaq Lawson, Ryan Davis and Eddie Yarbrough at defensive end. The Bills rank 30th in sacks per opposing pass attempt (4.3 percent) and Hughes leads the team with 3.0 sacks. -- Mike Rodak
Miami Dolphins The Dolphins are relatively heathy this week after suffering no new injuries in Monday's loss to the Panthers. However, starting guard Ted Larsen is one game in after returning from injured reserve from a bicep tear. His performance is something to watch down the stretch as Miami needs him healthy http://www.basketballofficialonline.com/Team/Authentic_DeMar_DeRozan_Jersey.html for the rest of the season. -- James Walker
New England Patriots The Patriots will likely be without wide receiver Chris Hogan (shoulder), defensive tackle Malcom Brown (ankle) and right tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle) once again, as those players didn't make the trip to Colorado Springs, where the team is spending the week before playing Sunday against the Raiders in Mexico City. Phillip Dorsett, Alan Branch and LaAdrian Waddle filled in for them against the Broncos, with Waddle especially getting high marks. Said Chris Baker Youth jersey offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels: "He's done a good job of staying patient, working hard, waiting his turn, and now Chris Baker Youth jersey he's trying to make the most of his opportunities, and he's done well so far." -- Mike Reiss
New York Jets When the Jets return from their bye, the injury spotlight will focus on two players: running back Matt Forte (knee) and cornerback Morris Claiborne (foot). Forte sat out the last game with his chronic issue, so he will have had a 24-day rest before the next game. The offense missed his pass-catching ability against the Bucs last week. Claiborne aggravated a sprain in the last game and pulled himself out in the first quarter. They need him for the stretch run because they face some tough receivers, and Claiborne often covers the opponents' No. 1. -- Rich Cimini
The expectation had been for running back Danny Woodhead to come off injured reserve this week, but Woodhead and team officials have been surprisingly noncommittal http://www.authenticbruinsproshop.com/authentic-37-patrice-bergeron-jersey.html about his availability for Sunday's game in Green Bay. "I don't know the odds [of playing]," Woodhead said after Wednesday's practice. "I'm staying in my lane. We'll see where it takes us." Woodhead, who has been out since the season opener with a hamstring injury, would provide a much-needed boost to a struggling offense that ranks last in the NFL in passing. He represents the Ravens' biggest mismatch for defenses. -- Jamison Hensley
Cincinnati Bengals Cornerback Adam Jones didn't practice Wednesday and is presumably under the league's concussion protocol after exiting last week's loss to the Titans. He'll likely need to log a full practice Thursday or Friday in order to play Sunday against the Broncos, but with his history of concussions, the Bengals could be without their most veteran defensive back. He suffered from back issues earlier this season, and Darqueze Dennard and Josh Shaw picked up his duties. Will Jackson III also missed practice Wednesday while still nursing the toe injury that took him out of Sunday's game at Tennessee. -- Laurel Pfahler
Cleveland Browns Two starting offensive linemen didn't practice Wednesday. Right tackle Shon Coleman has a concussion, and center JC Tretter has shoulder, knee and quad issues. The Jaguars lead the league in fewest points allowed per game (14.9) and sacks (35), so it would not be a good game Sunday if the Browns are without two offensive linemen. -- Pat McManamon
in a limited capacity since exiting the Week 8 win over the Browns with a concussion. The Rams' defensive line is among the best the Vikings will see this year, so getting Remmers back for Sunday is a top priority. Everson Griffen's (foot) absence was felt last week against Washington. The Vikings didn't generate much pressure off the edge and had a combined six pressures on
86 pass-rushing snaps between Danielle Hunter and Brian Robison. Coach Mike Zimmer said that he expects Griffen, who was a late scratch in Week 10, to be ready to go Sunday. Safety Andrew Sendejo was the only player to miss practice Wednesday. He sustained a groin/hamstring injury late against the Redskins and exited the game. -- Courtney Cronin
Two-time Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman is the biggest concern right now as he sustained his second concussion since August, the third of his Falcons career. Although coach Dan Quinn stopped short of declaring Freeman out for Monday night's showdown at Seattle, the Falcons surely will be cautious not to rush Freeman back before he's ready. Tevin Coleman will have to shoulder more of the load at running back until Freeman returns. -- Vaughn McClure
Carolina Panthers Tight end Greg Olsen is on pace to come off injured reserve after the bye and play in the Week 12 matchup with the Jets. Olsen has been out since breaking his foot in a Week 2 win over Buffalo. His return should be a spark for the http://www.ravensofficialnflproshop.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_RAY_LEWIS_JERSEY.html team, particularly after losing wide receiver Curtis Samuel (ankle) for the season last week. But Monday is the big day for Olsen to test to see if the foot can handle the pressure of facing live competition. -- David Newton
New Orleans Saints Linebacker A.J. Klein didn't practice Wednesday because of the ankle injury that knocked him out of last week's game at Buffalo. Klein will absolutely be missed if he can't play this week, since he has been a great addition as the "quarterback" and signal-caller in the middle of the defense. But the Saints do have solid depth behind him with veterans Manti Te'o and Craig Robertson -- as they showed by not missing a beat in the 47-10 rout at Buffalo. The rest of the injury report was promising. Everyone was either full or limited, including safety Kenny Vaccaro, who returned after missing last week with a groin injury. -- Mike Triplett
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Quarterback Jameis Winston will be out for at least another week Justin Blackmon Authentic Jersey and possibly longer, depending on how his shoulder responds to the two weeks prescribed rest by multiple doctors, including Dr. James Andrews.
Coach Dirk Koetter said he expects to see Winston back sometime this season, while general manager Jason Licht said that while they are sticking with two weeks, there is "no real timeline" and he could be out for "an extended period." Koetter also said that there had been no discussion between him and Licht on shutting Winston down for the season, and surgery is currently not being considered. -- Jenna Laine
All eyes are on quarterback Drew Stanton. He has a knee injury that has been reported as a sprain, but he talked about having a bone bruise Wednesday. He's progressing every day, faster than coach Bruce Arians anticipated, but his status for Sunday in Houston is still up in the air. Arians will make a decision after Friday's practice, but one issue that will factor into his decision will be how mobile Stanton can be in order to protect himself on the field. If Stanton can't play, Blaine Gabbert will get the start. -- Josh Weinfuss
Los Angeles Rams There was a longer injury report than usual Wednesday, but it included a morsel of good news: Outside linebacker Robert Quinn, who missed last week's game with an undisclosed illness, was http://www.officialfootballauthentics.com/baltimore_ravens-c-34_864.html a limited participant. It's early, but Quinn, the only starter to not play in Week 10, appears on track to play Sunday in Minnesota. Outside linebacker Connor Barwin (knee), safety Lamarcus Joyner (hip) and left guard Rodger Saffold (ankle) did not practice, but coach Sean McVay said the Rams were mainly being cautious with their players. -- Alden Gonzalez
San Francisco 49ers For the third week in a row, San Francisco's starting free safety is dealing with an injury. But unlike the season-ending fractured forearms suffered by Jimmie Ward and Jaquiski Tartt, rookie Adrian Colbert has a fractured thumb. Colbert had surgery on the thumb on Tuesday, and with the Niners on bye, he'll have additional time to recover. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Colbert is likely to be questionable for the first game after the bye, set for Nov. 26 against Seattle. It's possible Colbert could play with a cast, and the Niners could Justin Blackmon Authentic Jersey use him given how injury-prone they've been at such an important position in their defense. -- Nick Wagoner
can play Sunday against the Eagles despite not practicing Wednesday. He didn't play against the Falcons last week because of a groin strain, and the Cowboys were http://www.officialauthenticravenstore.com/womens_tony_jefferson_jersey lost without him, giving up eight sacks. If Smith can't play, then
Byron Bell would likely take over for Chaz Green in the starting lineup. Green gave up four of the eight sacks, but Bell still gave up two sacks. Linebacker Sean Lee didn't practice and could Blake Martinez Jersey miss the next three games with a hamstring strain. Anthony Hitchens would take over at weakside linebacker, but look for Justin Durant to take more snaps at middle linebacker over Jaylon Smith. -- Todd Archer
New York Giants Defensive tackle Damon Harrison could miss his first game since joining the Giants last season. He's dealing with an ankle injury and didn't practice Wednesday. Not having Harrison would change the Giants' defense. He has been the one constant this season. You don't run at him Blake Martinez Jersey when he's on the field. His replacements -- Jay Bromley and Robert Thomas -- aren't known as run-stuffers. Not having Harrison will make life difficult for the Giants against Kareem Hunt and the Chiefs. -- Jordan Raanan
Philadelphia Eagles The Eagles are expected to get cornerback Ronald Darby back for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys. Sidelined since the season opener with a dislocated ankle, the team's projected No. 1 corner has been a full participant at practice early in the week and has worked with the first team. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz indicated Darby will likely play on the left side when he returns, bumping Jalen Mills to the right. -- Tim McManus
Washington Redskins Left tackle Trent Williams (knee) and tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) remain the biggest injury concerns. Neither practiced Wednesday, but that's not unusual for Williams. It has been his routine since he hurt his knee against the Chiefs in Week 4. Taking three weeks off didn't help him that much, so for Williams, it'll always come down to how much pain
can he tolerate -- the bone bruise and ligament damage impacts his lateral movement, too. The challenge is being ready for the next three games considering the Redskins play on Thanksgiving. Reed was able to practice early last week, then stopped because of the hamstring and sat out a second straight game. He went through agility work on a side field. It's too early to know his status, and, as of now, http://www.packersauthenticofficialstore.com/WOMENS-JAHRI-EVANS-JERSEY.html the best guess is it'll be another game-time decision. -- John Keim
The biggest question mark is right guard Kyle Long, who was officially listed as limited Wednesday. But while Long dressed for last week's game against Green Bay, the three-time Pro Bowler only played one snap on special teams. He admitted Wednesday that he's dealing with multiple injuries -- dislocated fingers, a torn labrum and ankle problems. Long's status for Sunday against the Lions is unknown. It also appears the Bears will be without inside linebacker Danny Trevathan for another week. Trevathan did not practice Wednesday as he continues to recover from a serious calf injury. -- Jeff Dickerson
Detroit Lions Defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (back) missed his fourth practice in a row Wednesday. He missed last week against Cleveland, and if he doesn't practice Thursday, that doesn't bode well for his availability against Chicago.
Right guard T.J. Lang is still working his way through concussion protocol. If he's cleared by Sunday, he'll play. It would be the first time all year the starting offensive line built by general manager Bob Quinn would be in a game. Dwayne Washington is also battling injury -- a somewhat common theme for him -- and if he's out, it could mean Zach Zenner's return to the active roster. -- Michael Rothstein
Green Bay Packers Coach Mike McCarthy said he was hopeful that Ty Montgomery would be able to play Sunday against the Ravens, but that looks like a long shot. The running back didn't practice Wednesday after he reinjured the ribs he broke earlier in the season. And considering fellow running back Aaron Jones is out multiple weeks with a knee injury, it looks like it could be rookies Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays in the backfield. Williams was effective in relief of Jones and Montgomery against the Bears last Sunday, but Mays has yet to carry in a regular-season game. -- Rob Demovsky
dynamic dual threats. He had his first career 100-yard rushing game as the Saints ran for a total of 298 yards in a stunning annihilation of the Bills' defense. Kamara was already leading the NFL with 6.0 yards per carry before he enhanced that number Sunday. He now has at least 75 total yards from scrimmage in six consecutive games. And he is on pace for a total of 1,404 yards from Gordon Hayward Womens Jersey scrimmage (741 rushing, 663 receiving) and 11 touchdowns this year. -- Mike Triplett
Analysis: Golladay hasn't played since September, but he showed on Gordon Hayward Authentic Jersey a 50-yard deep route along the sideline why he's a potential difference-maker for Detroit. His catch radius created the necessary separation for Matthew Stafford to hit him in stride,
and then he ran past receivers into Cleveland's red zone. The Lions have found ways to move the ball and take http://www.authenticflamesjerseys.com/-30-mike-vernon-jersey_c-475.html deeper chances over the past three weeks and the reintroduction of Golladay into the offense can only continue that over the past seven weeks of the season. -- Michael Rothstein
Analysis: Agnew has become one of Detroit's most electrifying players and is putting himself in line for a Pro Bowl berth as a rookie. He entered the weekend as the only player in the league with two punt returns for touchdowns and he almost had a third in the second half, but he got caught inside the Cleveland 20-yard line (there was also a flag
that negated the entire return). It knocked out a 49-yard return that showed why whenever he touches the ball, he's a threat to score. The Gordon Hayward Authentic Jersey Lions don't have many other players who can do that right now. He has been a draft steal for his special-teams work. -- Michael Rothstein
Analysis: Out of Western State in Colorado, Ekeler has taken over the role held in previous years by Danny Woodhead for the Chargers as the pass-catching running back. Not wanting to test Jacksonville's talented secondary, Philip Rivers checked down to Ekeler out in the http://www.49ersofficialonlineproshop.com/49ers+brian+hoyer+jersey flat, and he made http://www.jacksonvillejaguars.us.com/WOMENS-DEDE-WESTBROOK-JERSEY.html the Jaguars pay with two touchdown catches -- one from 28 yards and the other for 22.
Ekeler played the air guitar for his celebration afterward. With Melvin Gordon struggling to get things going in the ground game, Ekeler helped to jump-start the Bolts' offense. However, the rookie running back did have a costly fumble at the end of the game. "He was big," Rivers said. "Those catches and runs were huge plays to get us into the end zone twice." -- Eric D. Williams
Analysis: Getting Foster back in the lineup has been a boon to the 49ers' defense. He has proved capable of being the sideline-to-sideline linebacker they have been lacking. Foster has bounced between middle and weakside linebacker the
past two weeks, and though he's not yet ready to handle the communication that goes with playing in the middle, he has been effective. This was only the second full game Foster has played this season but as he gets more snaps, the expectation remains that he will be one of the 49ers' primary building blocks Gordon Hayward Womens Jersey for the future. -- Nick Wagoner
Analysis: Beathard's time as the starter probably won't last much longer and it's possible that he will cede the job to Jimmy Garoppolo when the 49ers return from their bye against Seattle on Nov. 26. But if this was his final start before Garoppolo takes over, he made the most of it. Playing with a clean pocket for the first time (and against a woeful opponent
in the Giants), Beathard had what was easily the best game of his young career, highlighted by a perfect strike for an 83-yard touchdown to receiver Marquise Goodwin. Beathard did suffer a right thumb injury on his touchdown run, and though coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't ready to name Garoppolo his starter on Sunday night, that injury could make the decision an easy one. -- Nick Wagoner
nalysis: Make it four consecutive weeks with a touchdown. Engram has scored in every game since Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall were injured and lost for the season. This time he made a contested catch in the back of the end zone late in the second quarter. Engram limped off the field at one point before returning. He continues to be among quarterback Eli Manning's favorite weapons.
Manning even tried to hit Engram http://www.chargersofficialauthenticstore.com/Spencer-Pulley-Jersey on one play deep down the sideline when he was http://www.authentictexasrangers.com/Russell-Wilson-Jersey matched against a cornerback. That's the kind of trust the veteran quarterback has Authentic Mike Gartner Jersey in his rookie tight end. -- Jordan Raanan
Analysis: Fournette was playing in his first game since Oct. 15 and had his worst output of the season. He averaged just 2.4 yards per touch and failed to score a touchdown for the first time. Fournette wasn't helped by the fact the offensive line was down two starters and a third is hampered by a triceps injury. RT Jermey Parnell (knee) wasn't active and LG Patrick
Omameh aggravated a knee injury that had him listed as questionable for the game, too. The Chargers were no different than any other team the Jaguars faced -- they loaded the box to stop Fournette -- but Fournette didn't have much room to maneuver and had trouble getting to the edge because the Chargers' ends got into the backfield quickly. -- Michael DiRocco
Analysis: The highlight for McCaffrey Authentic Mike Gartner Jersey wasn’t his touchdown run in the second quarter against the Dolphins on Monday night. It was a third-and-8 catch that he turned into a 19-yard gain when he faked out the defender with one of his patented one-on-one moves. It was the third-and-10 block he put on two Miami defenders as the slot receiver that cleared the path for a 28-yard Devin Funchess touchdown catch in the third quarter. You can say this about every week, but much of what the eighth pick of the draft does doesn’t show up in the stat sheet. -- David Newton
Analysis: Kizer had his best game as a Browns quarterback Sunday. He looked calm and confident in the pocket. He threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Britt when he correctly read a blitz and found the "hot" receiver.
He threw a lovely 35-yard completion to Seth DeValve that set up another touchdown. He also opened the game with a 38-yard completion to Sammie Coates down the sideline. Five of his completions were of 18 yards or more. This was a significant step for the rookie, one his coach acknowledged. There is room to grow -- Kizer did mistakenly call for a quarterback sneak at the end of the first
half that cost the Browns points -- but that Kizer has his best game in the first one after the Browns tried to trade for AJ McCarron says something. So, too, does the http://www.bengalsnflofficialprostore.com/WOMENS-TYLER-BOYD-JERSEY.html reality that Kizer returned after missing a little more than 10 minutes because of a rib injury that required X-rays. Kizer also overcame the end-of-the-half disappointment to have the Browns ahead 24-17
in the fourth quarter and guide the Browns to touchdowns on each of their first two second-half drives. Kizer is not a complete product by any means, but he showed significant growth in this loss, especially considering how poorly he played in the second half of the loss to the Vikings. -- Pat Authentic Mike Gartner Jersey McManamon
nalysis: With Jeremy Hill Mike Gartner Jersey on IR, Mixon was expected to take on a much bigger role, but he http://www.authenticpredatorstore.com/roman-josi-jersey_c-441.html had fewer carries than he did the previous two weeks. He did reach the end zone for the second time this season and second consecutive week, but the Bengals managed only 53 yards on the ground as the offensive line continues to struggle. -- ESPN New Orleans Saints RB Alvin
