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!''

in a nonpadded practice http://www.redskinsfootballproshoponline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_JAMISON_CROWDER_JERSEY.html Wednesday as he works his way through the concussion protocol with hopes of playing Sunday against the Bills. The 35-year-old self-reported concussion-like symptoms Monday. 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
The Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas in time for the 2020 NFL season takes another step in that direction with Monday's groundbreaking ceremony for the planned 65,000-seat, $1.9 billion domed stadium near the John Johnson Womens Jersey south end of the Las Vegas Strip on Russell Road, west of Mandalay Bay and Interstate 15.
Raiders owner Mark Davis received 31 of 32 votes for the franchise's relocation at the NFL owners meetings last spring. A $750 million hotel tax was passed by the Nevada state legislature last fall while the Raiders are contributing
$500 million and a $650 million loan from Bank of America is also involved. The Raiders will share the stadium with UNLV. ESPN's Paul Gutierrez and Arash Markazi are reporting from Las Vegas at the ceremony, where Davis and other Raiders personnel are on hand to break ground.
The Bengals player said he has heard officials cursing at Burfict on multiple occasions, and there is video that shows officials coming into contact with the linebacker three times in the past four games. An NFL spokesman denied those charges Monday, saying it is not unusual for officials to come into contact with players and that there has been nothing unusual involving officials' interactions with Burfict.
But over the past month, according to a source close to Burfict, the Bengals linebacker has grown increasingly upset with officials' treatment of him and feels he is being singled out by officials.
Burfict has complained to Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, a member of the league's competition committee, but those complaints have not been brought to the league office, an NFL spokesman said Monday. Lewis, for his part, said Monday that he doesn't believe officials are antagonizing Burfict.
"Officials have a job to do, and I've explained this to Vontaze, and he understands that," Lewis said. "They have a job to do and they are going to separate players, and players are in a situation where they are there. That's not what this is about, where the NFL should be. So, get back to the huddle and get going, and that's the most important thing. We don't need to jaw with anyone after the play, any of the players, so that's important.
"It would shock me if those things occur," Lewis continued. "I know on occasions supposedly http://www.usasoccershops.com/claudio-reyna-world-cup-jersey they have, but again, that would shock me." Officials made contact with Burfict in an Oct. 22 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, again in a Nov. 5 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and then in Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, during which Burfict was ejected for the first John Johnson Womens Jersey time in his career.
In the second quarter of the Bengals' 24-20 loss to Tennessee, Burfict was involved in a shoving match with a Titans offensive lineman. Down judge Jeff Bergman had a hand out to hold Burfict back during the altercation, and Burfict knocked his hand away. The league does not plan to suspend Burfict for making contact with Bergman, a source confirmed to ESPN.
Analysis: Trubisky had the best statistical game of his young career. The rookie's accuracy improved Sunday -- especially against pressure. Trubisky was 10-of-15 for 157 yards and one touchdown when Green Bay blitzed, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Trubisky's best throw came on his 46-yard http://www.panthersshopsnflonline.com/SUPER-BOWL-RUSSELL-SHEPARD-JERSEY touchdown pass to Josh Bellamy. Trubisky lofted the ball over the top of the Packers' defense and hit
Bellamy in stride for an easy score. The negatives: Trubisky still holds onto the ball too long. The second overall pick was sacked five times, but not all of them were the offensive line's fault. Trubisky also struggled when Green Bay sent only four rushers. On the season, Trubisky has zero touchdowns, two interceptions and seven sacks taken against four or fewer pass rushers, per ESPN Stats & Info. -- Jeff Dickerson
the Vikings are protecting the heck out of Keenum, and he just threw four touchdown passes in a victory over Washington, with one-time Vikings QB of the future Teddy Bridgewater looking on from the sideline.
The world might be expecting Bridgewater to take over, and Womens Keith Tkachuk Jersey he could do so as soon as this week. But whether or not he does, the Vikings are 7-2 with Keenum having started seven of their games because of Bradford's and Bridgewater's knee issues. If there were a Backup Quarterback of the Year Award, Keenum would be a runaway winner. But he's just hoping they let him finish this season as much more than that.
PHILADELPHIA -- At Womens Keith Tkachuk Jersey the close of the 2016 season -- a campaign that saw the Philadelphia Eagles finish last in the NFC East with a 7-9 record -- executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman used a question about the team's lack of wide receiver production to highlight a greater point about the hand he had been dealt when he reassumed command the year prior.
"It seems like a long time ago, we were leading the National Football League in 20-plus [yard] plays, and I don't have a DeLorean time machine to go back in time and get some of those guys back," he said.
The not-so-subtle-point: http://www.officialauthenticchargersstore.com/womens_hayes_pullard_jersey Receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, as well as running back LeSean McCoy, all exited when former head coach Chip Kelly was at http://www.officialauthenticbroncosshop.com/WOMENS-RILEY-DIXON-JERSEY.html the height of his powers. Roseman was removed from the personnel side of the operation in 2015 in favor of Kelly. During that one season, the roster was stripped down and disjointedly rearranged. There was a sizable mess to clean up.
"It was a challenging situation, and it starts with the quarterback position," Roseman said. "We didn't have a starting quarterback under contract. [Sam Bradford] was a free agent. We were picking 13th [in the 2016 draft] with no [second-round pick]."
It was the ability to turn that No. 13 pick into Carson Wentz and the extremely high batting average in the trades and free-agent moves that followed that made for a quick repair and sped the Eagles into the future, leaving a trail of fire in their wake (a la Marty McFly in "Back to the Future"). Here is a look at how Roseman & Co. transformed the Eagles, now 8-1, into serious contenders in just two years:
Acquired the eighth overall pick in the 2016 draft from Miami in exchange for LB Kiko Alonso, CB Byron Maxwell and the 13th overall pick in 2016: The Eagles shed two Kelly players (and Maxwell's large contract) and slid up five slots in the draft, the first of two moves that positioned them to land Wentz.
Acquired a fourth-round pick in the 2016 draft from Tennessee in exchange for RB DeMarco Murray and a fourth-round pick in 2016: Murray and Philly were oil and water from the jump. It was a necessary parting of the ways, with the Eagles moving up 13 slots in the draft in the process.
Agreed to terms with G Brandon Brooks, S Rodney McLeod, LB Nigel Bradham: A primary objective was to build along the offensive and defensive lines. Brooks has played at a Pro Bowl level since he came to Philly from the Texans in free agency. Malcolm Jenkins got a steady and reliable dance partner in McLeod, while Bradham has proved to be a sneaky important signing.
to be one of the best in the league, remember? There is Clark Gillies Womens Jersey a lot to unpack from the 49ers' first win of the season, including the possibility that Beathard's best game as quarterback could well have been his last, if they decide to hand the keys to Jimmy Garoppolo after the bye. But with all due respect and congratulations to Kyle Shanahan on his long-awaited first victory as an NFL head coach, this thing Sunday was more of a Giants story than a 49ers one.
The Giants were noncompetitive in the second half against a winless team that had lost its previous three games by a combined total of 63 points. They allowed three pass completions of 40 yards or longer -- the most by a 49ers team in a single game since 2001. The Niners rushed for 186 yards, including 162 before first contact. The Giants were pushed around up front, and a defense that
ranked 10th in the league last season in fewest yards allowed per game is now sitting at 31st. If that holds up, it'll be the sixth time in his nine seasons as a defensive coordinator or head coach that a Steve Spagnuolo defense finished in the bottom half of the league and the fourth time one finished in the bottom four.
Obviously, the problems with the Giants are extensive, systemic and rooted in the consistent inability of 11th-year general manager Jerry Reese to build a roster through the draft. But while Reese and coach Ben McAdoo take the brunt of the heat, it's worth wondering what happened to a defense that was supposed to be this team's backbone. It's fair to expect that the changes that await the Giants at season's end could be extensive.
That's the most by any team this season, and the Rams are 6-0 in those games. (Which sounds like a "yeah, duh" kind of stat, but the Texans have scored 30 five times and are 2-3 in those games, and the Cowboys are 2-2 when they score 30.)
There are five teams -- the Giants, Browns, Clark Gillies Womens Jersey Bears, Chargers and somehow the Steelers -- that haven't scored 30 in a game this season. The Giants, Browns and Bears didn't do so last season, either. Seriously, the Browns haven't scored 30 points in a game since Oct. 11, 2015, when they beat the Ravens 33-30 in overtime. (They're 2-34 since that day.)
The Rams score 30 in their sleep. They've done it three games in a row, and before that, they scored 27 against the Jaguars (though two of their three touchdowns that day were on special teams, and I promise I'm done with the parentheses now).
Things are http://www.officialauthenticdolphinsstore.com/Nike-Mark-Clayton-Jersey.html about to get tougher for Sean McVay, Jared Goff and the crew. Four of the Rams' next five opponents rank in the top half of the league in total defense, including Minnesota at No. 5 and New Orleans at No.
8 the next two weeks. But the Rams showed Sunday that they can make in-game adjustments when things aren't going their way. They had 131 total yards in the first half against Houston and busted out with 312 in the second. They hold a one-game lead in the division over Seattle, which beat them once, and don't see the Seahawks again until Week 15. If the Rams can slug http://www.officialdetroitredwings.com/Adidas-Alex-Delvecchio-Jersey out a couple in the meantime against some of the league's better defenses, it could be a fun December at the Coliseum.
A year ago, you might or might not remember, Keenum was the quarterback for the Rams. In fact, this was the week last season when the Rams switched from http://www.authenticdevilsstore.com/kyle-palmieri-jersey_c-422.html Keenum to Goff Clark Gillies Womens Jersey as the starter. Those were very different times. The Rams were averaging 20.8 points per game, well short of Clark Gillies Womens Jersey the 32.9 they're averaging now, and the Vikings had just lost four games in a row following a 5-0 start because they couldn't protect Sam Bradford.
It was an unreal day for Clayborn, a former first-round pick who hasn't had six sacks in a season since he had 7.5 in his rookie year of 2011 with Tampa Bay. It was a big win for the Falcons, who needed one to keep pace with the Panthers and the unconscious Saints in the NFC South. Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey But Clayborn's monster afternoon also made a pretty important point about Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey the Cowboys.
The fact that Dallas is without star running back Ezekiel Elliott is obviously the subject of blaring nationwide headlines. But the fact that the Cowboys had to play without injured left tackle Tyron Smith in this game got a little bit less attention. It might have mattered more.
Without Smith on the left side, Dak Prescott's protection fell apart almost completely and led to Clayborn's domination of overmatched Chaz Green. Having been pressured on 26.7 percent of his dropbacks in the Cowboys' first eight games, Prescott faced pressure on 40.5 percent of his dropbacks Sunday. Prescott had been sacked 10 times all season before Sunday. Then the Falcons got him eight times total.
The Cowboys might or might not be able to get Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey by without Elliott, but Smith could be a more important http://www.authenticcubsshop.com/authentic-31-greg-maddux-jersey.html piece of the offense than any other. It sure looked that way Sunday.
What in the name of Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush is going on in New Orleans? The Saints are on pace for 2,275 rushing yards. The last time they hit 2,000 in a season was 2011, a season in which they went 13-3 and lost to the Alex Smith 49ers in a wild playoff game. The time before that was 2009, when the Saints won the Super Bowl. Yes, it's a fun little secret of the Drew Brees era that the Saints have been title contenders whenever they've had a running game and a decent defense, and hoo boy, do they have those things this season.
Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara have combined for 1,089 rushing yards in the first nine games. Ingram is seventh in the league with 864 total yards from scrimmage. Kamara is 13th with 790. Brees didn't even have to throw a touchdown pass Sunday in a 47-10 victory over a Buffalo team that was 4-0 at home before the Saints showed up. (However, he did get in on the act and run for one of the six.)
I could make some New Orleans party crack here, but what the Saints are doing is no joke. They've already matched their win total (seven) from each of the previous three seasons, and they have seven games left to play. You and I might have thought
Brees was crazy last summer when he signed that contract extension because he wanted to try to http://www.authenticcelticstore.com/authentic-42-al-horford-jersey.html win one more with this team before it was all over, but a brilliant 2017 draft and a recommitment to the formula that has always worked best for Brees and Sean Payton have the Saints back in first place. An NFC South team has been to the Super Bowl each of the past two years, and these Saints think it could be their turn.
Oh, it didn't come easy. No, sir. The Jaguars needed the Chargers to exert every last bit of their late-game Chargerness to pull this one off. But pull it off they did, and the Jags sit at 6-3 and tied for first place in the AFC South.
Why does this matter? Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey Well, believe it or not, this is the first time since 2010 that the Jaguars have won six games in a season. No, that is not a typo. That is accurate. Six full seasons played without getting to six http://www.officiallachargersshop.com/Nigel_Harris_Jersey_Cheap wins. That's a run of serious ineptitude, folks, which is why the fact that the Tom Coughlin/Doug Marrone Jaguars can push teams around with their defense and running game is such welcome news to the fine citizens of Duval County.
This one wasn't easy. The Jaguars lead the league in rushing by nearly 20 yards per game, but they couldn't get the running game going Sunday against the Chargers' fearsome front. Of the Jaguars' 135 rushing yards, 56 came on a fake punt by Corey Grant. Take out that play, and the Jags averaged only 3.0 yards per carry -- well short of their awesome season average of 4.8. They asked Blake Bortles to throw it 51 times and still managed to win. That's like hitting the lottery, and toughing out a win when things don't go according to plan is the mark of a real contender.
There's a long way to go, and the division could come down to a New Year's Eve game against Tennessee, which already beat Jacksonville once. But if this keeps up, Coughlin's tone-setter, three-hour, padded training camp practices are going to look like the work of a genius -- a mad genius, maybe, but a genius nonetheless.
