Elite David Savard Jersey The first time I went over there with Kansas City (in 2015), it was actually our home game. We’re playing and, at first, they’re just kind of cheering and then as the game goes on, whoever got control of the game, the crowd gravitated toward that team. Fortunately for us, it was us. By the end of the game, you had the whole stadium cheering for the Chiefs.

If there’s one thing the Jaguars can’t afford, it’s to be behind on the scoreboard. Giving up 5.2 yards per rush so far in 2017 isn’t helping the team stick to that low-scoring strategy on a weekly basis.

Running the ball successfully has always been a path to wins in the NFL. It drives offensive success, allows a team to control time of possession, and usually makes life easy on a defense that gets plenty of time to rest between drives.

When coach Dirk Koetter was asked Thursday if there were any setbacks with his quarterback against the Bills, he told Dalvin Cook Authentic Jersey reporters, no setbacks. However, in an interview on SiriusXM NFL radio Koetter admitted Winston re-injured his throwing arm in Buffalo.

He played very well, especially in the second half against Buffalo, Koetter said. We did have that one sack-fumble in the first half and he kind of re-injured it.

Koetter added that Winston bruised his deltoid muscle in his throwing arm, which is why he threw only in Friday’s practice this week.

Winston originally injured his arm in Week 6 against the Cardinals, when he was dropped on his right shoulder by Arizona linebacker Chandler Jones and could not finish the first half. Winston returned the following week against the Bills, but he re-injured the same shoulder in the second quarter after a sack and a forced fumble by Bills defensive end Ryan Davis.

Patriots send Falcons into a tailspin they might not be able to pull out of

Graziano: Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs. The Broncos are allowing a league-low 3.0 rushing yards per attempt and a second-best 71.8 rushing yards per game. You’re starting Hunt, the league’s rushing leader, no matter what. But don’t be surprised if this is the week he gets passed at the top of that list by Le’Veon Bell.

Schatz: Derek Carr, QB and Amari Cooper, WR, Raiders. Buffalo has one of the best pass defenses in the league this season, even after giving up 27 points to Tampa Bay, and the Raiders will be playing one of those 10 a.m. Pacific Time starts on the East Coast. I would shy away from both Carr and Cooper.

The Raiders play at the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and will fly to Florida after the game and spend the week practicing at the IMG Academy in Bradenton before playing the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 5.

Head coach Jack Del Rio did not speak Thursday, but he was asked Wednesday about when and how Lynch would rejoin the Raiders.

“We’ve got people that will handle that part,” Del Rio said. “Right now, we’re just focusing on Buffalo.”

Lynch has rushed for 266 yards and two touchdowns on 72 carries for a career-low 3.7 yards per rush.

Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas will miss the rest of the season due to a torn triceps he suffered in a Week 7 loss against the Tennessee Titans, the team announced Monday. Heading into Week 7, Thomas, 32, has never missed a game or snap in his career. In fact, he played in 10,363 consecutive snaps in his career before the injury.49ers_211_0fffeb26c4b77934-150x150

Jason Witten’s incredible 1-handed TD catch keeps Cowboys rolling over the 49ers

Jason Witten is 35 years old. He sure doesn’t look it on the field, especially when he hauled in this one-handed catch against the San Francisco 49ers.

This argument seemed to find a receptive audience in the room. An unofficial count had only nine owners in favor of a mandate, though the reasons for the opposition varied: Some owners had tired of Jones always commandeering such meetings; some were jealous of his power and eager to see him go down; some saw the players-must-stand mandate as bad policy to invoke in the middle of the season; some owners were angry with Jones’ hard-line public stance on kneeling, feeling that it had backed them all into a corner.

Though many have been critical of Jones’ production this season, he actually sits seventh among wide receivers in fantasy points during the six weeks Atlanta has Joel Embiid Authentic Jersey played. And that includes a Week 4 game in which he was limited by injury to 14 snaps.

Witten is covered by Jaquiski Tartt, who has his left hand tied up. Dak Prescott puts the ball right where Witten can snag it with one hand.

Witten entered Sunday with 27 catches for 229 yards Chris Jones Authentic Jersey and two touchdowns this season. The 18-yard score gave the Cowboys a 20-3 lead over the Niners at the half.

As Jones spoke, Snyder mumbled out loud, See, Jones gets it — 96 percent of Americans are for guys standing, a claim some dismissed as a grand overstatement. McNair, a multimillion-dollar Trump campaign contributor, spoke next, echoing many of the same business concerns. We can’t have the inmates running the prison, McNair said.

That statement stunned some in the room. Then Kraft, who is close friends with Trump, politely rebuked the hardliners, saying that he supported the league’s marketing proposal and predicted the issue would work itself out over time.

The Bears still came out with the win, but it was a smart play by Rainey.

If you’re a Pats fan looking for a silver lining, Devin McCourty had a great game, allowing just three completions on six targets for 16 yards, according to Pro Football Focus.

Youth Edgar Martinez Jersey Still, the Bucs threw for 334 yards and a touchdown. Winston put up 225 yards and completed 13 of 21 passes and threw a touchdown in the fourth quarter. A lot of that had to do with the Patriots sacrificing tighter coverage to prevent big plays and protect their fourth quarter lead.

The touchdown doesn’t happen without some sabotage from his teammate Tyus Bowser, though, who tripped Rainey:

After Rainey accidentally tripped over Bowser, players on both teams stopped and assumed the play was over. Rainey was the only player who kept playing through the whistle, and he got an easy touchdown out of it.

The biggest game of the week happens in the late afternoon. Which Steelers team will show up this week? That’s the question when they take on the undefeated Chiefs on the road. Ben Roethlisberger threw five picks last and the offense looked sluggish yet again as the Steelers fell to 3-2. For a team with would-be Super Bowl expectations, they really need to start showing something. Any slip-up will be costly with their division rival Ravens, also 3-2, playing the Bears this week.

Stafford wound up sacked six times and pressured seemingly every other play.

While he may have only thrown for 229 yards, his ability to protect the ball and find open targets when his team needed him the most told a story his stat line can’t reflect. It’s even more impressive when you consider the kind of pressure Carolina was able to drive into the pocket.

Elite Mens Ryan Shazier Jersey A relentless pass rush was partially to blame, but solid coverage downfield helped force the passer into uncomfortable moments and slow, painful scrambles. Despite those issues, he was still able to tab through his route progression quickly enough to find open, overlooked targets like Abbrederis and Fells. With the Panthers taking away his primary options, he was dynamic enough to adjust on the fly and lead his team back into contention.

That stay meant that Elliott’s suspension would begin in Week 7, as soon as the Cowboys returned from a bye. The NFLPA filed a motion for an en banc hearing with the 5th District court. If granted, all of the judges with the 5th District will re-hear the NFL’s motion for a stay.
Mens Skal Labissiere Jersey
Why was Elliott suspended? Elliott was issued the six-game suspension after the NFL completed a year-long investigation into domestic violence allegations levied against Elliott by a former girlfriend in July 2016. Six games is the baseline for a first-time domestic violence offender in the NFL.

The NFLPA and Elliott immediately appealed with the league. The league’s arbitrator, Harold Henderson, upheld the suspension.

What’s next for Elliott? Elliott can keep playing, for now. Don’t expect the NFL to give this one up without a fight. The case law that results from this case stands to shape player discipline for the foreseeable future.

NFL power rankings 2017: Tracking where teams are entering Week 7

With the NFL season nearing the halfway mark, the power rankings continue to see a major shakeup. With the Chiefs being the last unbeaten team to fall and several other teams suffering major losses, the rankings are nearly a free-for-all.

Butker jumped to the NFL as a Panthers’ 2017 seventh-round draft pick after four years as Georgia Tech’s top kicker. After rocky sophomore and junior campaigns, he finished his college career with a 15-17 performance as a senior to put himself on the NFL radar. He couldn’t beat out Graham Gano for the team’s primary role, but he landed on Carolina’s practice squad after a perfect preseason (two field goals, four extra points).

Opportunity knocked when the Chiefs placed Santos on injured reserve. Coach Reid, looking for a new field-goal specialist, turned to the former Yellow Jacket. Butker signed with Kansas City on Sept. 26, just five days before his pro debut. While he started off shaky by pushing his first NFL field-goal attempt wide left from 46 yards, he recovered in time to push his new team to a prime-time victory.

Through five games, the Patriots had yet to hold an opposing quarterback to fewer than 300 passing yards. Journeyman Jets passer Josh McCown was supposed to be the guy to break that streak — instead, he’s breaking New England.

McCown carved up the Patriots’ defense in the first half of their AFC East showdown, getting his team out to a 14-0 lead in the second quarter before New England stormed back in a 24-17 victory. Despite the loss, McCown managed to throw for 354 yards to keep the Pats’ ignominious streak alive.

The Atlanta Falcons were the only other undefeated team heading into Week 4, but they dropped down the list after a disappointing home loss to the Bills. Speaking of which, the Bills are 3-1 and surprising some people along the way.

There’s something very, very wrong with the Colts sideline

What the actual heck is happening here?

Which performance stood out the most? What surprised you most? And how will the Green Bay Packers fare without their quarterback?

Week 6 concludes Monday night when the Indianapolis Colts travel to Nissan Stadium to take on the AFC South rival Tennessee Titans (8:30 p.m. ET, on ESPN/ESPN App). Barring a tie, the winner of Monday’s game will join the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars atop the division at 3-3, while the loser will be alone in last place.

As part of the NFL’s investigation, Elliott’s accuser turned over phone records. Included in the league’s 160-page was an exchange from September between the woman and a friend where they discuss using a sex tape to blackmail Elliott, according to documents obtained by Yahoo Sports.
Game Womens Buster Posey Jersey
Elliott told them his version of what happened the week of July 17, 2016. His representatives also discussed any concerns they had about the advisory committee’s investigation reports, which had been passed along to them on June 7.

Later, the four advisors all separately met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to give him their opinions of the case. Goodell, who would make the decision about whether or not to suspend Elliott, was not present for Elliott’s meeting or any other hearings about Elliott, according to a Deadspin report.

Authentic Youth Nomar Mazara Jersey Elliott’s accuser fully cooperated with the NFL’s investigation. She talked to league investigators multiple times, according to the Washington Post. However, Goodell did not meet with her, per Pro Football Talk.

My intention here isn’t to undermine your confidence in our Week 7 picks.

I’m merely pointing out that there is an awful lot of variance in the league this year. That’s all. We’re only here to guide you.

If you do want to follow anyone’s recommendations here, I suggest our weekly guests. This week it’s Jimmy from Music City Miracles, our home for all things Titans. All together, our guest pickers are leading the pack this season.

We allow our panel to make a couple changes to the picks by the end of the week, so be sure to check back.

Mens Patrik Berglund Jersey Some might say no harm no foul. The Woodland school district did its job. Pappas’ pay was not docked. She’s back at work. No big deal, right?

Wrong. It is a big deal, because this did not happen in a vacuum. There have been similar reports of outsized, irrational reactions to people taking a knee since Trump began banging the drum about mandatory patriotism in a way that even makes conservatives like Rush Limbaugh nervous.

Trump is continually tweeting; I know what he’s doing, and I understand why he’s doing it, Limbaugh said on Oct. 11. But I don’t think that it is useful or helpful for any employee anywhere to be forced to do something (patriotic) because the government says they must.

Yankees: Dellin Betances wasn’t used after throwing 35 pitches in two-plus innings and taking the loss in Game 2.

With 54,726 fans in attendance, the Dodgers had their largest crowd in Chavez Ravine since 2012, before renovations to the venerable stadium. The crowd also was one of the season’s loudest, egged on by Puig’s enthusiasm and by Hill, who held up a cardboard sign in the seventh inning exhorting fans to get loud.

Greinke couldn’t make it through four innings in the Diamondbacks’ wild-card game, but nobody around the Dodgers doubts the $206.5 million right-hander who won 51 games in three years with Los Angeles. Darvish went 4-3 with a 3.44 ERA in two months with the Dodgers, but the Japanese star yielded just one earned run in 19 1/3 innings over his final three starts before the postseason.

Kids Mel Ott Jersey We can’t be an organization that pulls the plug on guys too quick, Francona said. And we don’t have a crystal ball, either. But with an arm like that, if you run out of patience too quickly, he’s going to be doing this for another organization. We can’t have that happen.

And it wasn’t just patience. I mean, it was a lot of hard work. I know Kevin Cash isn’t here anymore, but he did a lot with Carrasco, sitting out in that bullpen, as far as mentality and embracing what’s coming. There are a lot of people that deserve credit. Carlos is right at the top of that list. But it’s a good story for us, because he’s been one of the better pitchers in the game.

It will be an even better story if Carrasco can vanquish New York in Game 3 and carry the Indians into the Championship Series. The prime-time stage awaits in New York.

the Blazers are better than the team that was outscored by 43 points last season.

The Blazers are optimistic that Evan Turner, Lillard, and McCollum have worked out the kinks after an awkward start together. Lineups with all three outscored opponents by nine points per 100 possessions after mid-January, per NBA.com. Turner can handle, turning Lillard and McCollum into spot-up weapons, and all three can catch-and-go through tiny creases. Cramped spacing doesn’t do as much damage to teams with three playmakers who slither through those corridors in rapid-fire drive-and-kick sequences.

If the Nurkic Fever lasts, the Blazers are better than the team that was outscored by 43 points last season. That still might not be good enough in the West. Egads.

I might have PTSD from all those times the Bucks were bad when they were supposed to be good, and good when they were supposed to be bad.

If you narrow the focus to those special skills — Jokic’s passing and Curry’s shooting — Jokic still reigns supreme with respect to their peer groups. Jokic averaged 6.3 assists per 36 minutes last season, 174 percent greater than the league-average starting center. Conversely, Curry’s made 3s per 36 rated 120 percent greater than the league-average starting point guard. Point-center Nikola Jokic is truly a game-changer. Even if Jokic’s playmaking doesn’t rewrite the record books like Curry’s shooting has, the fact that only Russell Westbrook, James Harden and LeBron James had more triple-doubles last season is a testament to his ability to control all facets of the game.

Although the advanced metrics indicate that Jokic already is a superstar, all signs point to this being the season that public perception catches up. Of course, Jokic will have some more help this season in the form of four-time All-Star Paul Millsap.tigers_015-115x115
