After NFL protests, Seahawks start fund to fight 'injustice and inequality'

The Seattle Seahawks announced Friday the creation of the "Seahawks Players Equality & Justice for All Action Fund."

Amid the controversial protests and comments across the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks started a donation fund Friday for "equality and justice."

The team announced the “Seahawks Players Equality & Justice for All Action Fund” in a statement on their website, as a way to combat “injustice and inequality by supporting leadership and education programs.”

In a statement signed by the players, they said the program will fund “programs addressing equality and justice” with hopes to “build a more compassionate and inclusive society.”

They said an advisory board will be created to oversee the group and to decide how they will distribute the donated money. The board is said to be made up of players,Womens Chris Godwin Jersey, team staff, and business and community leaders.

The team has reportedly been trying to appear unified in their message and “make a tangible difference,” according to Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. He added that enough had been said on the subject and now it was time to help those affected.

“I think it’s imperative,Womens Kendell Beckwith Jersey,” Sherman said. “The way things are, you want to be a shining example of what things could and how people could come together,Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey, and how it looks when people do come together and unite as one, and don’t look at skin color, don’t look at gender,Womens Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey, don’t look at anything but the quality of someone’s character. We’re trying to do our best to be that example.”

Tension over protests has heightened following recent comments made by President Trump.

At a political rally in Alabama last week, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, Trump said,Authentic Roberto Aguayo Jersey, when somebody disrespects our flag, ‘Get that son of a off the field right now, say,Womens Roberto Aguayo Jersey, out, he’s fired!’

The comment led to an overwhelming response from players and teams throughout the league on Sunday with several more athletes protesting, including the entire Seahawks team who chose to stay off the field during the anthem.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is a game day decision for Sunday night

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin will be a game day decision Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts.

Baldwin left the Titans game in the fourth quarter with a groin jury and was unable to return. The wide receiver has yet to practice this week, but he slotted to get some work in Friday’s walkthrough.

“He got some work done today,” Carroll told KIRO RADIO’s Dori Monson during his morning interview. “(Friday) is his day to practice, we’ll find out again, we won’t know until probably Sunday for him.”

Carroll said at the start of the week, the plan was to sit Baldwin out Wednesday and Thursday with the hope he could play Sunday night.

The outlook for running back C.J. Prosise isn’t so favorable, however.

“He’s still hobbling today,” Carroll said. “He’s going to have to make an enormous jump to make it back. We’ll have to see what happens Friday and Saturday.”

Prosise sustained a significant ankle injury against Tennessee and has not returned to practice.

Carroll will address the media Friday afternoon following the team’s walkthrough to address any remaining injury concerns.

Colts at Seahawks in Week 4: Picks, how to watch and stream on NFL Sunday

For different reasons, the Colts and Seahawks have been two of the NFL's most disappointing teams through the first four weeks of the season. Indianapolis' issues start with injured quarterback Andrew Luck, who has yet to see the field, and his absence goes a long way in explaining an offense that ranks dead last in the league, just behind the likes of San Francisco and Cleveland (take a moment to let that sink in).

Meanwhile, the Seahawks' woes start with an offensive line incapable of protecting Russell Wilson and now extend to the other side of the ball; after years of domination, Seattle's defense has been decidedly ordinary this season. According to Football Outsiders' metrics, the unit ranks 18th overall. And while they're 11th in pass defense, only two teams the Falcons and Jaguars are worse at stopping the run.

Here's what you need to know ahead of Sunday night's matchup.

Luck,Authentic Chris Godwin Jersey, the first-overall pick in 2012 who led the Colts to three straight 11-win seasons before injuries and inconsistency led to back-to-back 8-8 records, is hoping to finally return to practice next week. This after he missed training camp and preseason while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

For now,Authentic Kendell Beckwith Jersey, Jacoby Brissett remains the starter. The Patriots traded Brissett to Indy in exchange for wideout Phillip Dorsett just before the season. And after one forgettable start by Scott Tolzien in the opener, the Colts turned to Brissett,Womens DeSean Jackson Jersey, the second-year quarterback out of NC State who started two games in New England last season while Tom Brady was suspended and after Jimmy Garoppolo was injured.

The Colts had a chance to beat the Cardinals in Brissett's debut, but a late interception sealed Indy's fate. A week later, Brissett's athleticism shone through and the Colts outlasted the still-winless Browns.

"Brissett's done a great job in a very short time,Authentic Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey," Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano said. "He had experience in New England (with the Patriots), but this was (about) learning a new system and terminology. That's hard."

But unlike the Colts' previous two games, Sunday's get-together will be on the road in one of the NFL's loudest stadiums: CenturyLink Field.

"Bring earmuffs to practice this week because we're going to have the noise blaring,Authentic Noah Spence Jersey," Pagano told reporters. "(The Seahawks fans) make it tough to operate on offense."

Last season, the Seahawks allowed a league-low 3.4 yards per carry. Through three games this season that number has skyrocketed to 5.3, which ranks dead last and goes a long way in explaining why this group ranks 30th against the run. It's also why 34-year-old Frank Gore is the biggest issue facing this unit, which would have been a preposterous notion just a few months ago. But here we are.

"Different mistakes,Womens Noah Spence Jersey," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "Really fine running backs have been able to take advantage of it and really maximize them. We made an error and we misread a formation and didn't hit it just right on the run play and the ball got out. ..., but we've made a couple big mistakes and they've really cost us

"We're concerned, we're concerned in that we don't want that to happen anymore. We want to get rid of that.", yeah

The Titans' DeMarco Murray ripped off a 75-yard touchdown run last Sunday, and the week before that, the longest run against the Seahawks' defense was 34 yards., 49ers running back Carlos Hyde had a 61-yard run. Last season

it's just bad defense,"It's just bad ball, bad fits, so we've got to get rid of that.", "It's so easy," Seattle linebacker K.J. Wright said of those two long runs, but sometimes out there you just make mistakes and it happens. We get paid a lot to not make those mistakes. This defense is No. 1 in the past few years for a reason

The Seahawks are 13-point home favorites and all eight of   experts are picking Seattle to win, including Pete Prisco, 31-10:, who likes the Seahawks to roll

This was supposed to be Andrew Luck against Russell Wilson, but this is a big step up in talent. The Seahawks have to be steaming at 1-2. This is when they start to turn it around. Blowout., but it's Jacoby Brissett against the Legion of Boom. Brissett played well last week against the Browns

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

replace him with Nick Novak,Womens Josh Reynolds Jersey,Chargers waive Younghoe Koo

waiving the rookie kicker and signing veteran Nick Novak.,The Los Angeles Chargers moved on from kicker Younghoe Koo on Thursday

"Nick's been a very accurate kicker in this league for a long time,Authentic Dan Marino Jersey," coach Anthony Lynn said Thursday. "He's been here before. We're familiar with him, and he has experience in big games. As you know,Womens Jarvis Landry Jersey, every game we've played has been a close game, and every point matters."

losing three of those games by three points or fewer.,The Chargers have started the season 0-4

Koo had a potential game-tying kick blocked in the final second of a 24-21 Week 1 loss to the Denver Broncos and then missed what would have been a game-winner in the final seconds of the Chargers' 19-17 Week 2 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Overall he was 3-for-6 on field goal attempts this season while converting all nine of his extra-point attempts.

This will be the 36-year-old Novak's second stint with the Chargers. He previously kicked for the Chargers from 2011 to 2014. He made 101 of his 117 field goal attempts with the Chargers and 156 of his 157 extra-point attempts.

He was with the Houston Texans the past two seasons but was released by the team before the start of this season.

Novak has converted 82.8 percent of his field goal attempts (173-for-209). He is 239-for-245 on extra-point attempts.,In 10 NFL seasons

"I take a lot of pride in wearing the lightning bolt and the name on the back of the jersey, I just want to be a good teammate. It's great to play; it's not so fun being out there watching."," Novak said. "Like I said

Novak said he'd been training at his home nearby in San Diego when he got a call from the Chargers on Wednesday. Novak said he also attended the Chargers' last home game against the Philadelphia Eagles last week to check out his potential new surroundings at the StubHub Center.

"Koo's a very talented kicker, watched him throughout the game and I was really impressed with his leg strength."," Novak said. "He's got a live leg and a lot of talent. I actually went to the game last week with my wife and watched him in warm-ups

The change at kicker comes after Lynn vowed to make changes following the Chargers' winless start.

Lynn had this to say when asked why he didn't make the change at kicker two weeks ago.

Koo was kicking the ball fine,"Two weeks ago," Lynn said. "He had the one bad outing against Miami, but players have a bad day, I've seen enough. It was time to bring in someone with a little more consistency, a bad game every once in a while. But watching him over the last couple weeks in pregame and practice, a little more experience.

"But I think Koo is going to have a long NFL career. I told him that this happens to a lot of rookies. A lot of rookies get cut early in their career, who knows?", and they come back and play for a lot of years. And he may be back here

more than 200 players knelt during the anthem after Mr. Trump called on NFL team owners to fire any players who refuse to stand while it plays. NFL team owners defended their players while some joined them on the field by linking arms or kneeling.,Last week

Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins: Odds, NFL Betting Pick, Analysis

Over the last three-plus seasons, the Miami Dolphins are only 13-11 SU and 9-15 ATS at home over that same span., the Tennessee Titans are just 8-18 both straight up and against the spread on the road. Meanwhile

they then lost quarterback Marcus Mariota to injury in the third quarter and let things slip away from there.,Tennessee fell down to the Texans 21-0 early but pulled within 24-14 late in the first half. However

Instead, a 37-16 victory over Jacksonville and a 33-27 victory over Seattle., Tennessee will try to replicate its performances of the previous two weeks

won time of possession for both games and committed zero turnovers.,The Titans outrushed both the Jaguars and Seahawks by an average margin of 187-84

Why the Dolphins can cover the spread

taking that game outright as a three-point dog.,The Dolphins opened this season with a 19-17 victory over the Chargers out in Los Angeles. Miami won the ground battle that day 111-44 and held a 33/27 advantage in time of possession

         

and that team is most likely to be Tennessee.,,Womens Jay Ajayi Jersey,,The team that wins the ground battle and makes the fewest mistakes should win this game and cover this spread

Matt Cassel is capable of handing the ball off to DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.,Even if Mariota can't go Sunday

Miami looks like a lost cause at the moment and playing at home might not help. The smarter money in this spot at sports betting sites takes the Titans.,Authentic Jarvis Landry JerseyMeanwhile

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

MARCUS MARIOTA’S STATUS REMAINS UP IN THE AIR FOR SUNDAY’S GAME AGAINST DOLPHINS

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Mularkey says quarterback Marcus Mariota is still unclear for their upcoming matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

The Titans coach remains hopeful that Mariota will play despite a strained hamstring .

Mariota, who was hurt in last week’s loss to Houston, stretching and throwing passes during the open portion of the workouts on Wednesday. The quarterback did not speak with the media after practice., was limited in practice

The Titans (2-2) signed Brandon Weeden to a one-year deal Tuesday as a third quarterback, and Mularkey says Weeden’s familiarity with the Titans’ offense was the deciding factor.

Mularkey says he was not aware if Tennessee considered Colin Kaepernick. But Mularkey says he knows Kaepernick is not familiar with their offense like Weeden and T.J. Yates.

Dolphins leaning on experience from last season as they aim to recover from slow start

The Miami Dolphins are hoping to bounce back after a disappointing start as they did last season.

Coming off a 20-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints in London and dropping to 1-2, the Dolphins have returned to South Florida in preparation to host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

“It is what it is,” coach Adam Gase said. “I’m fine. They’re fine. We’ll come out here and we’ll go practice.”

The Dolphins have recent experience of bouncing back from a slow start, which they are hoping to repeat when they started 1-4 last season before finishing 10-6 and advancing to the playoffs for the first time in eight seasons.

Dolphins falter offensively in shutout loss to Saints in London

“I think it gives us that sense that there’s no need to panic,” wide receiver Kenny Stills said. “We understand that the schemes that we’re running in the run game take a little bit of time for our guys to get on the same page.

“We know that we have players, we know that we have talent,Womens Ryan Tannehill Jersey, and we’ll get back on the right track.”, and we know that we have great coaches so we just have to get back to the basics and fundamentals of things and execute the game plan every week

Gase said: “If you’re panicking, then you’re in the wrong profession. Your job is to come out each week,Womens Kenny Stills Jersey, it’s a new week, and really everybody needs to look themselves in the mirror and realize, start over. We had 24 hours to complain about everything and now it’s time to go back to work, do your job and things will go right.”

Offensively,Womens Julius Thomas Jersey, the Dolphins are last in scoring at 8.3 points per game, and are last in total offense at 249 yards a game., which includes scoring a total of six points the past two games

“Just disappointment,” right guard Jermon Bushrod said. “I’m disappointed in myself. I’m disappointed that we can’t score. I’m disappointed we’re not winning these games.

“We just have to get better. I have to get better. It’s tough. It’s not a good situation that we’re in right now,Womens Xavien Howard Jersey, but we can still fight our way out of it. We’ve got to put in some extra work.”

“A lot of her co-workers barricaded themselves in a storage room and they finally got the OK probably a couple hours ago to leave so I was up all night just thinking about that. I’m happy she’s cool and everybody she works with is cool.”

McTyer stayed on the phone with his girlfriend for a couple of hours while others also gathered information.

I was so hurt about it,” Bushrod said. “It’s a bad time for the people in Las Vegas and for our country it’s not a good look. We’re sending out thoughts and prayers to everyone affected and to everyone who helped out,“I was so upset, they’re heroes.”

10 biggest losers at NFL’s quarter mark

Four weeks of NFL action are already in the books as the 2017 season swims along. There are definitely some surprise teams and players who have climbed ahead in an early race to make the playoffs.

just as there are the pleasant things afoot, there are many unpleasant situations plaguing some teams stumbling out of the gates. Even worse is that one of last season’s playoff teams has yet to win a game. Furthermore,However, last year’s Super Bowl champions have lost both home games thus far. What exactly is happening with Tom Brady and Co.?

some veteran free agent signings are already looking to be complete fails. Meanwhile, a few select team owners,Then looking at specific players, head coaches and general managers need to be put on blast for some really poor decision making.

Without further ado, let’s discuss the NFL’s biggest losers at the quarter mark.

Adam Gase/Jay Cutler marriage failing

Cutler had one of his best years working with Gase as a member of the Chicago Bears. Things changed quickly,Oh boy. An idea that seemed so right in August has gone so wrong so quickly. Cutler dazzled and seemed to be a natural fit at quarterback during the preseason. After all, and not for the better. Miami has averaged a meager 8.3 points per game on the season. How long can the Dolphins stand playing at this meager level?

Gase is standing up for his quarterback. Fans that stick around to watch the Dolphins sink rather than swim are witnessing some sketchy play calling between Gase and Cutler. One of the latest was a failed decoy play utilizing Cutler as a receiver in a Wildcat formation, which Gase now says was purposely planned to play out as it did. Perhaps featuring running back Jay Ajayi more might help,Despite Cutler’s struggles, though he’s been awful the past two weeks while dealing with an injury. It is time for some pep talks and drastic improvements if the Dolphins plan to survive the Cutler era.

Adrian Peterson the odd man out

inquiring minds are scratching their heads wondering why the New Orleans Saints signed running back Adrian Peterson to a two-year deal. The 32-year-old insisted during free agency that he still had plenty to offer. So far,At this point in time, Peterson is not meshing with the team’s offensive scheme and is being pretty much made irrelevant by veteran Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara.

Peterson just isn’t hitting many holes with the same explosion he was known for his entire career. As a result, he is averaging a meager 3.0 yards per carry. He is also clashing with head coach Sean Payton, which makes for an all-around awkward environment. Fortunately,When given opportunities, the Saints did plan well for their future when they drafted Kamara. He is proving to be far more valuable than AP, who may be on his last legs.

Indianapolis Colts pushing their Luck

the Colts’ brass, and the quarterback himself, seem intent on getting Luck back on the field as soon as he is able. The good news is Luck has resumed throwing,The Colts would be wise at this point in the season to allow quarterback Andrew Luck the rest of the year to get healthy. Instead, which means eventually he should be ready to suit up. But, is it worth the risk?

comfortably in fourth place in the AFC South. Indianapolis invested heavily in their franchise quarterback,Authentic Ryan Tannehill Jersey,The Colts’ chances of making it into the postseason are almost nil considering the team is 1-3, and rushing him back to action could backfire. Why not just allow backup Jacoby Brissett to keep developing his chemistry with the offense while Luck takes the adequate time he needs to completely mend?

Unfortunately, Authentic Kenny Stills Jersey,that doesn’t look to be in general manager Chris Ballard’s game plan.

Dean Spanos bungles Chargers’ move to Los Angeles

The Chargers are unraveling on all fronts. They are losing games by narrow margins (hardly shocking),Authentic Laremy Tunsil Jersey, fan attendance is waning and quarterback Philip Rivers is at his wit’s end. Plus one player ranted after last game that the scene at Stub Hub looks more like an away game.

nobody has much to smile about since Spanos ripped the Chargers from their San Diego roots. There is a very minuscule chance the team rises up the ranks of the AFC West with its 0-4 record. With the rate things are declining,The Chargers’ offense is averaging just 18 points per tilt and the defense ranks within the bottom 10. Overall, this could be the season Rivers eventually calls his last.

New York Giants: The chaos is real

A team with so much promise after finishing last season in a wild card playoff game is in some incredible disarray after only four games. The winless Giants are tanking before our eyes. Authentic Julius Thomas Jersey,Head coach Ben McAdoo continues to employ some poor play calling, which makes us wonder if he will even have his job long term. He is first to admit the team can’t keep “doing the same thing over and over again.”

that seems to keep happening. Quarterback Eli Manning and his talented group of pass-catchers are not doing enough to keep up. This is a must considering the Giants’ run-game is nearly non-existent. On defense,Authentic Xavien Howard Jersey,But, the team is allowing 23.8 points on average and 359.3 yards per game. This is basically the same defensive unit that finished 10th last year. So much for wide receiver Brandon Marshall’s hopes to finish his career as a “winner.” The postseason is certainly not in sight at this rate.

Bears blow the Mike Glennon experiment

only to trade up one spot to surprisingly draft rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky. This was reportedly a move that head coach John Fox knew nothing about. But,The Chicago Bears paid quarterback Mike Glennon quite handsomely to start for the team, perhaps it will be a move that pays off.

was utterly atrocious through four games. He committed eight turnovers compared to four touchdowns. He has since been benched even though the Bears committed to him from Day 1. Either way,Womens Laremy Tunsil Jersey, who was outplayed by the rookie in the preseason, Glennon gets paid. But now,Glennon,Authentic Kenyan Drake Jersey, the pressure will be on Trubisky to prove the Bears did not make another mistake in reaching for the rookie signal caller.

The bottom line is, the Bears need to start doing something positive no matter who is under center.

Beast Mode not so beastly

who sat on ice in 2016. Lynch’s presence should be helping boost the Raiders to the next level. But, things have gotten quieter each week for Lynch. Beastmode has gone from whooping it up with dance moves on the sidelines to becoming nearly invisible. In his last two games,The Oakland Raiders fought hard to acquire running Marshawn Lynch, Lynch touched the ball a total of just 16 times for 38 yards.

and we cannot help but wondering if the reason is to preserve him. The only other reason would be that he is actually losing his touch. It does not help at all that quarterback Derek Carr could miss multiple weeks with a back injury. This is terrible news for the Raiders,His usage is dwindling, and Lynch could himself be more at risk for injury if he tries to shoulder the load on offense.

New England’s horrible defense

the Patriots' defense finished the season allowing an average of just 15.6 points per game. Wow, have the times changed. The Patriots are yielding 32 points per game,In 2016, undermining any efforts made by quarterback Tom Brady and the offense. This is unfortunate because the Patriots’ offense is scoring more points than every team in the league but the Los Angeles Rams.

which is not exactly the healthy start to the season anyone expected. It is beginning to look like some of head coach Bill Belichick’s recent moves are backfiring. Trading away linebacker Jamie Collins and defensive end Chandler Jones have clearly left holes. Plus, the Patriots’ secondary has been horrible,The Patriots have lost two home games, as evidenced by the 335.3 receiving yards they're allowing per game.

If Brady’s game-saving heroics ever start to fade, the Pats look to be in major trouble.

Is anyone home in Baltimore?

Multiple injuries unfortunately have been hitting the Ravens since the start of preseason last year. What’s happened this season is just a continuation of a horrible streak of bad luck.

It is clear that the team is reeling, and it is also crystal clear that quarterback Joe Flacco is floundering. The 10th-year quarterback looks like he is playing amateur hour. In four games Flacco has thrown just four touchdowns compared to six interceptions. He is averaging just 150.25 passing yards per game.

is at least averaging 4.5 yards per carry. But, when the team has the chance to employ it, there have been only two rushing touchdowns. The defense ranks 10th-worst in the league,How is this happening with talented wideouts such as Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace at Flacco’s disposal? Baltimore’s run game, which is a far cry to finishing seventh-best in 2016.

It not shocking that Flacco said his team lacks confidence after scoring a measly 16 points in its last two contests.

Cleveland Browns still a factory of sadness

the Browns are not finding the same success when the big stakes are on the table. The team as a whole is putting up a valiant effort, but the wins are slipping away. The Browns fully committed to rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer,After winning all four preseason games, but the learning curve is steep. Kizer has completed just 51.4 percent of his passes and has scored five touchdowns compared to nine turnovers.

who injured his hand in Week 2. It also doesn’t help that Kenny Britt might as well not even show up,It does not help that Kizer is without second-year wide receiver Corey Coleman, he’s been so bad.

first-overall pick, pass rusher Myles Garrett,Plus, has yet to suit up. The good news is he is on course to play in Week 5 after taking time to mend his high ankle sprain. He will make an immediate impact on defense while the young Kizer and his offense keep striving to develop chemistry.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard is day-to-day

cornerback Xavien Howard suffered what appeared to be a shoulder or arm injury.,Authentic Kenny Stills Jersey,During the Saints game last Sunday

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was asked about Howard’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Titans:,On Wednesday

” Gase said. “It’s such a day to day deal with him right now. We’ll kind of take it like that.”,Womens Julius Thomas Jersey,“Yeah I mean we’re going to have to just go through and see how he feels

Gase suggested that Howard’s injury wasn’t too serious.

Just in case Howard could not start for the Dolphins on Sunday, who was benched last week could be one of the players starting in Howard’s place., Gase said Byron Maxwell

” Gase said,“I think everybody is an option right now

Jay Cutler says Dolphins offense isn’t as bad as it appears

perhaps because there’s no time to shave when you’re trying to figure out how to score a few points.,Womens Xavien Howard Jersey,Jay Cutler wore the beginning of a beard Wednesday

The whiskers framed a rueful smile when someone suggested to Cutler that the Miami offense has struggled this year.

“That, “is an understatement.”,Womens Kenyan Drake Jersey,” he said

In the wake of a 20-0 loss to New Orleans, yards per play and third-down conversions. They’ve scored two touchdowns in three games and hope to break out Sunday against the Tennessee Titans (2-2)., the Dolphins (1-2) rank last in the NFL in points and yards per game

he said it’s not as awful as it seems.,While Cutler doesn’t sugarcoat the situation

“On the outside it looks like all the walls are falling and we’re really bad and there’s no hope and no prayer for us, we can be a competitive team offensively.”,” he said. “But we’re close. We’re right there. If we clean up a few things here

Cutler acknowledges he has been part of the problem. He appears unsettled in the pocket and has often responded to pressure with awkward footwork, he looks like a rusty veteran who took the summer off before being coaxed out of retirement to sign with Miami and replace an injured Ryan Tannehill., which has led to erratic or weak throws. As a result he ranks 29th in yards per attempt and 25th in quarterback rating. In short

and expresses exasperation with the tendency to make the quarterback the culprit whenever things go wrong.,And that’s what he is. But second-year coach Adam Gase defends Cutler

” Gase said. “I heard when I got here Ryan couldn’t play. That was wrong. The evaluation skills that everybody has about quarterbacks is really bad. I’m not going to listen to anybody else outside myself.”,“It drives me nuts

Gase is telling himself to stick with the 34-year-old Cutler.

“If we protect him and give him a second to throw the ball, we’ll be all right,” Gase said. “If he’s going to get hit from start to finish, I don’t care who you put back there. We need to do a better job of protecting him.”

Cutler’s slump actually began last year. In his eight games over the past two seasons, including five with the Chicago Bears in 2016 before he got hurt,Womens Ryan Tannehill Jersey, he has a 2-6 record and a passer rating of 79.1, with six touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

Gase said.,Authentic Julius Thomas Jersey,Better footwork is the key to improving those numbers

we have to make sure that he sets his feet and throws the ball the way that I know how he can throw it,“When he does have a clean pocket,Womens Laremy Tunsil Jersey, so those off-balance throws,” Gase said. “He’s older now. He’s not 25 anymore,Authentic Xavien Howard Jersey, they’re tougher. They’re not going to happen like they used to, and he knows that.”

In other words,Authentic Kenyan Drake Jersey, Cutler struggles against a stout pass rush, which has long been his reputation. And bad blocking is perhaps Miami’s biggest problem. Along with pressuring Cutler, opponents have often hit running back Jay Ajayi before he reaches the line of scrimmage.

Cutler said he still has faith in his linemen.

“They’re smart guys and they know when they play well; they know when they play bad, asking me how I’m feeling the next day. They take it personally.Authentic Ryan Tannehill Jersey, That group is one group I’m not that worried about. We’ll get that straightened away.”,” he said. “It’s important to them. They’re one of the first guys that help me up. They’re one of the first guys on the plane ride back asking me how I’m feeling

But at this point the Dolphins are sputtering badly, but a direct snap to Ajayi produced no gain., with even trick plays a bust. Miami took the wildcat out of mothballs against the Saints

Don’t blame Cutler for that one.Womens Kenny Stills Jersey, He lined up as a flanker and didn’t twitch a muscle when the ball was snapped.

don’t get hit,“That’s what they told me to do — sit there, don’t move, don’t touch anybody,” he said, breaking into another smile. “I feel like I executed that one.”

Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter now officially own the Miami Marlins

Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter now officially own the Miami Marlins. Though no announcement was made, the sale closed on Monday,Authentic Laremy Tunsil Jersey, though there was no ceremony with Sherman, Jeter and former owner Jeffrey Loria all in the room signing a contract.

Sherman and Jeter are expected to have a press conference as early as Tuesday.

Then they will begin filling key jobs in the organization.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

and he looks like he never left,Winner:Doug Martin is back

dominant self when he got his chances.,It’s really too bad Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter didn’t lean on Martin a bit more in this game. The man formerly known as "Muscle Hamster" returned from his three-game suspension and looked like his old

Martin scored a touchdown in the first half and finished the game with 74 yards on the ground, but two of the three times in which Jameis Winston targeted him the passes were too high and too hot to handle., averaging 5.7 yards per tote. He had some chances to make plays in the passing game as well

The Buccaneers and fantasy owners who had Martin stashed on the bench while he was suspended are no doubt happy about Thursday’s showing. Now we’ll have to see if the Bucs start to use him more in the coming weeks.

Talent is not an issue with Jameis Winston. But accuracy is. This young man missed wide open targets on multiple occasions, which isn’t easy to do., including a glaring mistake when DeSean Jackson got wide open down the right sideline. Winston overthrew his speedy receiver by a few yards

Winston’s fantasy owners came out of this one with at least a few points. He finished with 334 yards on 26-of-46 passing with one touchdown and no interceptions.,Thanks to some garbage time yardage and a late touchdown to Cameron Brate (who had some serious butterfingers in this one)

But the Buccaneers cannot be happy that Winston continues to display awful accuracy and less than ideal decision making. He made things fun at the end, too late., but it was too little

The Patriots are pretty remarkable. Rob Gronkowski was a late scratch due to a thigh injury he suffered earlier in the week during practice. He’s been making huge plays the past three games, catching 20 passes for 318 yards and two touchdowns. That kind of production is hard to replace.

totaling 77 yards and coming up with multiple third-down conversions. Chris Hogan continues to be a high-volume receiver, Brady relied on his running backs and receivers to get the job done through the air. Danny Amendola was so clutch. He caught all eight passes thrown his way, and he caught the only touchdown of the game for the Pats. Brandin Cooks and James White both had big plays through the air as well,New England’s tight ends were non-existent Thursday night. Instead, and the running game put forth a great effort as well.

It wasn’t the flashiest offensive showing we’ve seen from the Patriots in recent years, but they did what they had to do for the win.

he’s playing more like a future bust than a guy the franchise can build around. Countless times (seemingly) on Thursday night, spending the No. 11 overall pick to land him. So far, Hargreaves was caught with his pants down in soft coverage,The Buccaneers drafted Hargreaves last year, and Brady picked him apart. Romo couldn’t stop harping on the second-year player because his level of aggression was so awful.

Hargreaves simply looks lost right now. He made plenty of tackles (six),Perhaps he was worried about being beaten over the top. Perhaps his confidence is shot. Whatever the reason, but that’s because he was running downhill to haul down receivers who already had the ball in their hands.

this young cornerback has just one interception and 11 passes defended. Heading into Thursday night’s game,Through 20 career games, he was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 93 cornerback in the NFL (43.2 grade)Those are not numbers that match the expectations the Bucs had when they drafted him.

including a disappointing showing by the Buccaneers,Fantasy Football Week 5: What you missed Thursday, and progress for Sam Bradford

and Winston had just two dropped passes against him entering this game. The Bucs left at least 54 yards on the field, he was accurate on just 72.1 percent of his passes – but the Buccaneers didn't help him out at all with five drops. That matched the second-highest total for any QB this season, per PFF,Winston wasn't particularly sharp in Week 5 – according to ProFootballFocus.com, and that obviously could have been more with potential for yards after the catch.

Winston hasn't made quite the leap we hoped for through the season's quarter mark, those mistakes haven't turned into picks yet,Authentic Mike Evans Jersey, Winston looks incredible, but he has still made a few too many mistakes. The good news is, as he has the lowest interception rate of his career. Still, largely due to inconsistency. When he's on,Authentic O. J. Howard Jersey, especially in what looked like a great matchup against the Patriots this week. This was a disappointment all around for the Bucs offense. With one exception…, with all the weapons he has, we were hoping for more from Winston

Doug Martin looked rested, not rusty

and he only ended up playing 26 of the team's 72 snaps Thursday night. However,Authentic Justin Evans Jersey, that probably had as much to do with game script as anything,There was some concern about what Martin's role would look like in his first game back from suspension,Womens Kendell Beckwith Jersey, as Charles  Sims got most of the work late in the game as the Buccaneers were relying on the passing game to get back into it.

picking up 72 yards on 13 carries. He added a touchdown, any concerns that Martin might not play well were put to bed pretty early. He played twice as many snaps as Jacquizz Rodgers – who can be pretty safely dropped – and looked good running the ball, and also picked up 42 of his 72 yards after contact. Martin looked impressive,However,Authentic Kendell Beckwith Jersey, and could be a Fantasy No. 1 RB the rest of the season – especially with no bye week left.

Nick Folk missed three field goals. That's the kind of performance that typically has you looking for work,The Buccaneers need (another) new kicker… In a game they lost by five points, especially as Folk is now just 2 for 7 over the last two weeks.

but Hogan leads the team in targets,Chris Hogan remains the No. 1 option… We had obviously hoped Brandin Cooks would be the star of the passing attack, picking up 11 more in Week 5. He and Cooks are both No. 2 Fantasy WR.

but you wouldn't know it from looking at the box score. He wasn't targeted once, and struggled with his blocking as well. He has no Fantasy value,There was no replacement for Rob Gronkowski… Dwayne Allen played 50 of the team's 74 snaps, even if Gronkowski's injury lingers.

Mike Gillislee hasn't scored since Week 2… The Patriots' backfield is as confusing as we thought it might be, but Gillislee's role is pretty clear; he has 12 carries in three straight games. He's a touchdown-or-bust Fantasy RB2.

What else you need to know from around the NFL Thursday

Sam Bradford was able to practice

in the team's first practice for Week 5. Bradford hasn't played since Week 2 as a result of a knee injury, on a limited basis, but this is his first practice in two weeks. Hopefully this time goes better than last,Bradford was back on the practice field Thursday, when he left the team to seek a second opinion on his knee following further discomfort.

but Bradford clearly has a better chance to play this week than he has in a while. Bradford is an option for the team's Monday night game, and coach Mike Zimmer told reporters the issue is more about pain management at this point. Case Keenum has been running the first-team offense, and he would make for a sneaky waiver-wire add Saturday night if he's cleared to play. With Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen taking their play to another level,We've known Bradford is not dealing with any specific structural damage, Bradford would be a viable Fantasy starter if healthy.

Jay Ajayi (knee) was held out of practice

Last week, he was a full participant Wednesday, but was a full participant Thursday. This week, and then sat out Thursday's session. My guess is, Ajayi didn't practice Wednesday, he's in roughly the same spot he was last week, and the team is just trying to find the best way to manage his workload as he continues to deal with a sore knee.

as he has been dealing with a sore knee since before the team's first game, but the expectation at this point remains that he will play in Week 5 against the Titans. My concern at this point is more about Ajayi making it through the season, and doesn't get a bye week to fully rest that knee. I'm worried he might break down at some point,We'll keep an eye on Ajayi Friday, though that concern doesn't apply for Week 5 – Jamey Eisenberg has him as his Start of the Week.

Paul Perkins (ribs) missed practice

Perkins took a step backward Thursday, who flashed in Week 4,,Womens Justin Evans Jersey but this certainly doesn't bode well for Perkins' chances of playing. Rookie Wayne Gallman, going from a limited participant to an observer on the sidelines. We'll see what happens Friday, would be in line for more work if Perkins misses time, and Orleans Darkwa would also likely see a boost in opportunities.

Wendell Smallwood (knee) missed practice

Smallwood has now sat out each of the first two days of practice this week, you need to come up with a contingency plan. Corey Clement would be a good one, but if you were planning on relying on Smallwood, and that's a bad sign for his chances of playing this week. We'll see what Friday brings,Womens Mike Evans Jersey, given that we know LeGarrette Blount is typically only going to get his rushing downs work. Clement could pick up the slack in Smallwood's role, and Smallwood played 35 of 79 snaps and had 14 touches in Week 4.

Michael Crabtree (chest) was upgraded to full practice

who are going to need all hands on deck to remain competitive with E.J. Manuel set to replace and injured Derek Carr for at least one week. Amari Cooper was also upgraded to full practice with his knee injury, Crabtree's absence looks like it's going to last just one week. That's good news for the Raiders,Womens O. J. Howard Jersey, so the receiving corps at least should be at full strength. It's going to be tough for Crabtree or Cooper to live up to expectations with Manuel throwing them the ball,Authentic Chris Godwin Jersey,Barring a setback, and both should be considered more like No. 3 Fantasy WR.

so it's a question of pain tolerance and effectiveness. With Jamaal Williams' knee looking like a non-issue,Ty Montgomery (ribs) is still limited… This one really looks like it's going to come down to a game-time call. Mongtomery doesn't have much risk of re-injury if he wears extra protection, the only thing we need to know in Green Bay is Montgomery's status.

but coach Mike Mularkey told reporters Mariota was a little more involved. He hasn't been able to run yet,Authentic DeSean Jackson Jersey,Marcus Mariota (hamstring) did a little more Thursday… Mariota remained limited Thursday, and would likely be limited with his feet even if he does play.

Doug Baldwin (groin) was able to practice… This has been a lingering injury, but one Baldwin was able to play through last week. Expect the same for Week 5.

Marqise Lee (ribs) was held out of practice… Lee hasn't sounded too concerned about his rib injury, but this is certainly not a good sign for his chances in Week 5. Allen Hurns would get more responsibility if the Jaguars' receiving corps is further thinned out.

The Chargers signed Nick Novak… Younghoe Koo got nine PAT and six field-goal attempts in four games,Womens DeSean Jackson Jersey, so this isn't a bad spot for Novak. He's a viable Fantasy kicker.

Kenny Golladay (hamstring) remained sidelined… Golladay hasn't done much since his huge Week 1,Womens Chris Godwin Jersey, and at this point it's not crazy to drop him. He'll fight for playing time whenever he is healthy enough to do so.

Jameis Winston meets Tom Brady: I dream of being the type of QB he is

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston met in the tunnel underneath Raymond James Stadium following Thursday night's game, sharing an extended conversation that Winston had hoped would happen.

"I just said, 'It was an honor.' I told him thank you. A lot, to meet someone like that. I dream to be able to be the type of quarterback he is for his team to our team."," Winston said after the Buccaneers' 19-14 loss. "That's a blessing, man

Neat scene as Jameis Winston and Tom Brady catch up as Brady makes his way out of Raymond James Stadium.

Earlier in the week, wondering what he would say to him., Winston had talked about possibly meeting up with Brady

The conversation after the game was an extended one.

"Utmost respect for him, Joe Montana -- guys of that nature. Womens Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey,It was a privilege and an honor to meet him," Winston said, adding that he preferred to keep what they talked about between them. "He's definitely an inspiration to me and the quarterback position, definitely. Like every young kid growing up with a football in their hand aspiring to be like Peyton Manning, to look him in his eye, Tom Brady, to shake his hand. It felt good. That was another highlight of my night.

"I hate that he beat me, but he beats a lot of people."

Asked his reaction to how highly Winston speaks of him, too. I watch those guys and try to learn from them. When I was young, Brady said, I'm trying to learn from the young guys.,Womens Roberto Aguayo Jersey, "I feel that same way about a lot of younger players,Womens Ali Marpet Jersey, I learned from the older guys. And now that I'm older

"He's a great young player and he obviously led the team back tonight, and they were very close. He's got a great future."

SHOULD PATRIOTS BE WORRIED?Womens Noah Spence Jersey, TOM BRADY TOOK ANOTHER BEATING AGAINST BUCCANEERS

The New England Patriots just about squeezed past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday night on the strength of a previously pilloried defense.

That doesn’t mean their worries are over.

The Buccaneers got to Tom Brady repeatedly at Raymond James Stadium, sacking him twice and forcing one fumble.Womens Donovan Smith Jersey, That’s the same defense that came into the game with one sack in three games on the season so far, which covers Bill Belichick’s team., as reported by WEEI Radio

The phlegmatism is very Brady, very Patriots,Womens Derek Wolfe Jersey, you go again next Sunday., very NFL. You take the licks, you struggle back up

Or do you, if you’re past the age of 40? We’re still less than a year removed from that strange controversy in the spring,” Bundchen told CBS in May., when Gisele Bundchen let slip that her husband is not as immune to the stresses and strains and brutality of football as he might appear. “He had a concussion last year. He has concussions pretty much every... I mean,Authentic Derek Wolfe Jersey, we don’t talk about it. He does have concussions

The NFL could find no record of a Brady concussion in the 2016 season. But the cloak of immunity was lifted, a kind of constantly exhorting cyborg fashioned to play the quarterback position as well as it has ever been played. Now? There’s a vulnerability creeping in. Brady has been sacked 15 times in five games of the 2017 season, partially, at that point. It was easy, before that, according to Yahoo Sports. He is well on pace to break his record for sacks taken in a season, to imagine Brady as he appears on the field, Authentic Donovan Smith Jersey,set in 2001.

It’s not too difficult to work out why Brady is getting hit so often. A pocket quarterback not known for his mobility, and now on the wrong side of 40,” left guard Joe Thuney told the Boston Herald after Brady had been harried against the Houston Texans. “It’s all about execution, he needs to be releasing the ball quickly. But the Patriots’ chronic injury problems at wide receiver mean New England lacks downfield threats. Brady is having to hang around in the pocket, and he doesn’t even have a dominant run game to fall back on and hand the ball off to. He threw the ball 40 times against the Buccaneers; six times fewer than his counterpart Jameis Winston, sure, though, but still probably too many. Worst of all, Brady is playing behind a struggling offensive line. “There are always things you can fix, little details here and there. There’s always room for improvement.” It’s one thing taking sacks from the Texans’ fearsome defense, and quite another allowing pressure from the Buccaneers.

The Patriots are struggling to win with Brady; had Buccaneers kicker Nick Folk not missed three field goals on Thursday night, fast., they would have dropped to 2-3. Without Brady—if they keep letting a 40-year-old man get hammered to the turf—a season that promised dominance for Belichick and Co. is going to go south

After the team parted ways with former second-round pick Roberto Aguayo this preseason, veteran Nick Folk is the new subject of ridicule after missing three field goal attempts Thursday in a 19-14 loss to the New England Patriots.

Folk has missed five of his last seven field goal attempts, as well as an extra point last week against the New York Giants.

"Of course it wasn't what we need tonight," Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said of Folk's performance.

Asked after the game if Folk would remain the team's kicker, Koetter said he had spoken with general manager Jason Licht after the game and a ruling would be forthcoming.

"You don't want to make any rash decisions," Koetter said.

Folk missed a 56-yard field goal attempt at the end of the half and later a 49-yard kick in the rhird quarter. But the most deflating error was not connecting on a 31-yard attempt that would have cut the Patriots' lead to 16-10 in the fourth quarter.

"Yeah," Folk said. "This one's on me.", I left points out there. We should've won that game 20-19

The Buccaneers are unrivaled with their recent run of kicking woes. Dating back to the beginning of last season, according to NFL Media research. , the team has converted just 28 of 42 field goal attempts. No other team has more than 10 misses

Folk secured the job in training camp when the team chose to move on from Aguayo after just one year. But his struggles have left a 2-2 Buccaneers team with little room for error or recourse in close games.

"These last two weeks haven't been exactly what we're looking for, and of course Nick would be the first to admit it, and we had other opportunities."," Koetter said. "But it's a team game

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Giants owner should have the ax ready — even if he hates it

a little over a month after the Tom Coughlin Giants had blown a game in Jacksonville, joked: “I wanted to fire everybody,It was nearly three years ago when John Mara, from the people in the equipment room to the people upstairs.”

Five weeks into what he expected would be a Super season, Mara undoubtedly is reliving those emotions.

Mara has never been one to allow fan outrage and media critics to compel him to throw red meat to his angry base. He and Steve Tisch have a partnership that considers knee-jerk decisions and rash judgments counterproductive to any chance for long-term success.

But ownership should not be reluctant now to put both Jerry Reese and Ben McAdoo on the hot seat.

Both of them misjudged their 0-5 team terribly, and have stood helpless to stop the bleeding.

beginning with Wellington Mara, have a long history of erring on the side of continuity and stability,The Giants, and barring a complete collapse replete with internal strife,Womens Devon Kennard Jersey, no one should be surprised if Reese and McAdoo get a mulligan and survive this season without reason.

and will likely do the same with Reese. Mara called in Tiki Barber, who told him: “He’s a great coach, but he needs to change.” Coughlin outlined his plan for helping Eli Manning take the next step,Womens Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey,Mara looked for every possible excuse not to fire Coughlin after the 2006 season ended, and agreed to change his frosty relationships,Womens Matt Forte Jersey, both with the players and media.

and his new,Reese will likely need to outline changes in his personnel operation, urgent plan for building a wall in front of Manning while his championship window still remains slightly open at 37.

But Reese and McAdoo better have the right answers.

Reese’s future may very well be in McAdoo’s hands over these next 11 games.

I’m aware of it. Everybody’s irritated,Womens Kelvin Beachum Jersey, I’m aware of it,“Everyone’s disappointed,Womens Chandler Catanzaro Jersey,” McAdoo said Monday. “My focus right now is trying to help with the personnel department to field a football team this week.”

ownership believed that Reese had built Secretariat, that McAdoo could lead that horse to water and make it drink,If only five weeks ago,Womens DeMario Davis Jersey, then it should not rush to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Son of Mara is the anti-George Steinbrenner when it comes to firings and hirings. Coughlin was excused after 12 seasons, only after three consecutive seasons out of the playoffs. Reese succeeded Ernie Accorsi in 2007.

who had been put on notice by Mara when he was not swept away with Coughlin, was rightfully applauded for targeting the right high-priced free agents — Olivier Vernon,Reese, Damon Harrison and Janoris Jenkins — to upgrade a defense that carried the McAdoo Giants back to the playoffs in January.

There is no defense for that defense this season. Or for that alleged pass rush.

slower Brandon Marshall,Reese whiffed on an older, who was not the difference-making No. 2 receiver opposite Beckham and posted on Instagram that he will undergo season-ending surgery.

with Ereck Flowers manning left tackle for the immobile Manning,Reese’s worst crime in the eyes of Giants nation is trusting that keeping the offensive line intact, would pay dividends. The Titans traded up and ahead of the Giants in 2016 for right tackle Jack Conklin and Reese settled for cornerback Eli Apple — who has regressed this season. As has 2016 fifth-rounder Paul Perkins. Third-rounder Darian Thompson had been injured or invisible until his end-zone interception against Philip Rivers on Sunday.

McAdoo promised a heavy-handed team that showed up incapable of running the ball and stopping the run and half expecting the other team to swoon at the mere sight of the Giants.

His in-game decisions and reluctance to surrender the play-calling to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan have hardly helped.

His tiptoeing through the Beckham tulips led to his fallen star musing publicly about the predictability of the Giants offense.

Evan Engram grabbed his crotch and Beckham mimicked urinating like a dog. Bad reflections on the organization in general,For their end-zone celebrations, and on the head coach in particular.

When McAdoo’s offense finally began reaching 20 points, his defense began disgracing the uniform.

His loyalists will tell you that he is intelligent and fearless and never flinched taking over for Coughlin.

His naysayers will tell you that he is no offensive guru or strategist and suddenly in over his head.

11-10 as the head coach,How McAdoo, confronts the adversity will speak volumes. Can he keep his team from quitting on him?

A Giant Dilemma looming.

with Beckham lost to a fractured ankle,And now, it is likely to get worse before it gets better.

How much worse — nothing irked Wellington Mara more than empty seats in December, much less November — will go a long way toward determining how hot the hot seats are for the general manager and the head coach.

Giants' Sterling Shepard avoids surgery,Authentic Devon Kennard Jersey, has 'no idea' when he'll return

Sterling Shepard was part of a conga line of Giants wide receivers getting MRIs on Monday afternoon.

I talked to him for a little while. I also saw Brandon (Marshall) there. I thought I was going to see Dwayne (Harris). I didn't see Dwayne,"I saw (Odell Beckham Jr.) actually going into my MRI,Authentic Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey," Shepard said. "So, he was after me,Authentic Matt Forte Jersey, though."

The Giants wide receiving corps reconvened at a local hospital after an unprecedented rash of injuries at the position during Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Chargers.

who was the first to go down with a sprained ankle in the second quarter,Beckham (fractured ankle), Marshall (ankle stabilization) and Harris (fracture of fifth metatarsal) have undergone surgeries this week. Shepard,Authentic Kelvin Beachum Jersey, is the only receiver that avoided a season-ending injury.

" Shepard said. "It was like one guy after another coming into the training room. I was actually going to go pick up my medicine and I heard about Odell and that one - they all crushed me - but to end it all off and have him out,"I've never seen anything like it,Authentic Chandler Catanzaro Jersey, especially from just one unit, it's crazy to see."

King's return is bittersweet

Shepard wore a walking boot on his left foot in the locker room on Tuesday. He said his ankle felt better than it did on Monday, but he's not sure if he'll be ready for Sunday's game at Denver.

"I have no idea,Authentic DeMario Davis Jersey," Shepard said. "I'm just kind of taking it day to day."

Shepard said the severity of this sprain is similar to the one in camp. He returned to practice fully 10 days later after missing the Giants' first preseason game.

Shepard said there isn't any added concern after spraining the same ankle twice in a two-month span.

" Shepard said. "I'm going to start taping my ankles now. It's something that I did all throughout college. When I got here,"I just think it just planted wrong and it rolled over on me again, I kind of worked away from it. Now I'm thinking I'm going to go back to it."

Travis Rudolph and Ed Eagan at wide receiver. Those four players have combined for 19 catches,If Shepard is out on Sunday, Tavarres King, the Giants will be left with Roger Lewis, 262 yards and three touchdowns in their careers. Shepard has 22 catches for 263 yards and one touchdown in the first five games of this season.

Shepard knows he's about to go from a strong complementary piece to the No. 1 focus of opposing defenses.

"That's what it is. Not much to say about that. That's what it is for me, trying to stop the run. So, just press man," Shepard said. "Probably a lot more one high, loading the box up, we have to do a great job beating one-on-one coverage and getting separation from guys."

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Giants' Janoris Jenkins' early exit could signal trouble

Snap count analysis

Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins almost never leaves the field when healthy. He played the first 76 defensive snaps in Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Chargers before missing the final two snaps. That absence could be a bad omen.

Jenkins headed to the locker room.,Authentic Robby Anderson Jersey,The Chargers got the ball back with 40 seconds left after a tipped Eli Manning pass was intercepted at midfield. While the rest of the Giants' defensive starters took the field for the final kneel downs by Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers

Jenkins' early departure may have gone unnoticed if coach Ben McAdoo hadn't used the Giants' final timeout with 38 seconds remaining after Rivers' first kneel down. While the timeout by McAdoo was an act of desperation, his All-Pro cornerback had already given up., he was still clearly hoping for a fumbled snap to give his team a shot at a miraculous win. Meanwhile

" McAdoo said during Monday's teleconference.,"We'll handle all those issues in-house

McAdoo didn't respond. Jenkins left the locker room before it was open to the media and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo was spotted chasing after the cornerback.,When asked if it was safe to say he didn't appreciate Jenkins' premature exit

Losing the locker room has to be McAdoo's biggest concern after the Giants' shocking 0-5 start. Jenkins' early exit looks like one of the first cracks in the foundation.

Giants coming unglued?

NFL Minute: Chiefs struggle against the Steelers

rather how easily Le’Veon Bell ran it against the Chiefs.,The Chiefs suffered their first loss of  2017 at the hands of a familiar foe, the Steelers. The final score ended 19-13, but the most alarming part of the game wasn’t just the offense

Bell finished with 32 carries for 179 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, the Chiefs were unable to get their own running game, including with Kareem Hunt, going. Hunt finished with nine carries for only 21 yards.

Here’s Tim Benz to break down the recent struggles for the Chiefs against the Steelers.

Harvey Weinstein is certainly not the first powerful man publicly and credibly accused of sexually harassing or abusing women in recent years.

Since 2015, the Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, the Fox News prime-time host Bill O’Reilly and the comedian and actor Bill Cosby have suffered professional, financial or reputational setbacks after numerous women told stories of their sexual misconduct.

Those stories dominated news cycles, to be sure, but the outcry accompanying Mr. Weinstein’s downfall seems louder and more impassioned — perhaps because Mr. Weinstein’s accusers include stars like Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

“I think this is a watershed moment, who had top jobs at Paramount Pictures and the Fox network.,Authentic Dee Ford Jersey,” said the producer Gail Berman

That became clear on Sunday, Instagram and Twitter were flooded with messages from women who used the hashtag #MeToo to acknowledge that they had dealt with sexual harassment or assault. A tweet posted by the actress Alyssa Milano inspired the online campaign., when Facebook

Twitter promoted the #MeToo campaign on Moments,Authentic Laurent Duvernay Tardif Jersey, its platform of highlighted stories,000 times in its first 24 hours by people from all lines of work. Those taking part included the singer Lady Gaga; the actresses Rosario Dawson, and the hashtag went on to be used more than 500,Authentic Ron Parker Jersey, Anna Paquin and Evan Rachel Wood; and the poet Najwa Zebian.

The Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow applauded the movement. “The democratization of the spread of information can finally move faster than a powerful media mogul’s attempts to bury it,” she said by email.

In recent days, the “Riverdale” actress Lili Reinhart and the “Inside Edition” correspondent Lisa Guerrero lodged new accusations against other men who work in entertainment., the singer Bjork

The singer and actress Courtney Love accused the powerful Creative Artists Agency of punishing her after she raised questions about Mr. Weinstein’s behavior in 2005,Authentic Allen Bailey Jersey, and a recently unearthed video clip of Ms. Love making the charge has gone viral.

The model Cameron Russell started a thread on her Instagram account on misconduct by men in fashion. It has led to more than 50 models anonymously sharing their stories of harassment.

Kicked off by reports on the allegations against Mr. Weinstein, the outpouring came a little more than a year after The Washington Post published leaked excerpts from an “Access Hollywood” tape in which Donald J. Trump, then a candidate for president, boasted of groping women.

Continue reading the main story

At issue now is whether or not Hollywood can continue its old way of doing business,Authentic Cairo Santos Jersey, with self-styled “outlaw” executives and auteurs getting away with sexual misconduct as lawyers and publicists protect them.

“I think it’s upsetting and devastating, all of the stories that have come out,” said Nina Jacobson, a film producer who was formerly the president of the Walt Disney Company’s Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group. “But I think the floodgates being opened is something that had to happen and that finally brings a subject to the surface that has sort of gone unchecked for countless years.”

Beginning with an article about the allegations against Mr. Weinstein that The New York Times published on Oct. 5, assault and even rape against the mogul. The police in New York and London have started criminal investigations. , more than 30 accusers have stepped forward with charges of harassment

Fatima Goss Graves, president and chief executive of the National Women’s Law Center, since the story broke, said that, “we’ve gotten twice the volume of calls of people who have said they’ve experienced harassment.”

The reaction has also led some senior women in Hollywood to predict that their longtime calls for change may finally come to something.

Mr. Weinstein’s accusers include the actress Angelina Jolie. Credit Emma Mcintyre/Getty Images for Netflix

“I don’t think this is going back to the status quo, the producer. “You’ll see that there will be improvement.”,” said Ms. Berman

The industry took a step toward that on Monday, when the Producers Guild of America moved to terminate Mr. Weinstein’s membership and issued a statement that seemed to catch up with the wave of disapproval sweeping social media.

“Sexual harassment of any type is completely unacceptable,” it said in part. “This is a systemic and pervasive problem requiring immediate industrywide action.”

On Saturday, the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stripped Mr. Weinstein of his academy membership. The move drew ridicule from the HBO comedy host John Oliver, given that it did no such thing in the cases of Mr. Cosby and Roman Polanski, in 1977, who, pleaded guilty to having unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl and then fled the country.

“So congratulations, Hollywood,” Mr. Oliver said. “See you at the next Oscars, where — and this is true — Casey Affleck will be presenting Best Picture.”

The reference was cutting: Mr. Affleck,” had settled sexual harassment allegations made against him by two female producers in civil suits. He has denied the accusations., who won the best actor award at this year’s Oscars for “Manchester by the Sea

Woody Allen served as the imperfect messenger for those cautioning against what he termed a “witch hunt.” His warning was in line with the thinking of some executives, who said they were wary of false accusations getting easy play on social media.

In breaking the news about the allegations, The Times and The New Yorker carefully corroborated women’s stories. Social media has no such checks and balances.

A spreadsheet listing men in the media business accused of sexist behaviors ranging from inappropriate flirting to rape surfaced last week and was circulated by email. The BuzzFeed writer Doree Shafrir weighed in on the list, writing of men who were said to be guilty of behaviors like leering: “Things do get complicated when you start lumping all this behavior together in a big anonymous spreadsheet of unsubstantiated allegations against dozens of named men.”

Ms. Jacobson, “There’s an importance to a careful vetting and a careful reposting and not just a free-for-all.” She added, the film producer, said,Womens Dee Ford Jersey, that she was in favor of more information, not less, which is why,Womens Laurent Duvernay Tardif Jersey, she said, the industry has to tackle the use of nondisclosure agreements.

“It clearly feels like we have to take the burden away from people to come forward,” she said. “They should not fear that, because you have an NDA,Womens Ron Parker Jersey, that you can’t speak up.”

Each successive case of a powerful man’s misdeeds bursting into the open helps to embolden the next round, the feminist Gloria Steinem said.

“When dealing with deep bias like racism and sexism, it usually takes more than one injustice — or even a few,Authentic Eric Fisher Jersey,” Ms. Steinem wrote in an email. “The Weinstein scandal would probably have been taken less seriously if Cosby, Ailes and others hadn’t come first and been within easy memory.”

Melinda McGillivray, told BuzzFeed last week that Ms. Paltrow and Ms. Jolie had an impact her accusation did not because of their star power. (Mr. Trump has denied harassment accusations.), who stepped forward last year to accuse Mr. Trump of groping her at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida in 2003

Mr. Trump’s election had put some women here on guard against a return to male misbehavior that was more common 40 years ago. And one list circulating among ranking female executives in the industry has tracked a string of promotions of men to senior jobs — at Apple and AMC,Womens Cairo Santos Jersey, Fox and CBS — amid fear that progress for women has stalled since November., Sony and Hulu

“Most of the available senior management television jobs this year have gone to men,” said Katie O’Connell, and formerly the chief executive of Gaumont Television. “While those men were all qualified, a chief executive of Platform One Media, it does highlight diminished access for these highest-level positions for women in 2017.”

As part of the general reaction to the articles on Mr. Weinstein,” a spokeswoman for the mall said., the Hollywood & Highland shopping center removed from its 17-year-old “Road to Hollywood” public art exhibit a daybed that some have taken to represent the proverbial “casting couch” — the symbol of ritualized abuse that studio chiefs meted out in trading roles for sexual favors. Womens Allen Bailey Jersey,It was removed because it had “attracted increased public attention and it has been threatened with damage

The artist behind the installation, Erika Rothenberg,Womens Eric Fisher Jersey, she said she was “completely sympathetic to people who have feelings about this, said in an interview that her work was not meant to invoke the casting couch. Referring to Mr. Weinstein’s case, who are angry about this.”

Nonetheless,” Ms. Rothenberg said., she said she hoped the daybed would return. “I don’t think this piece is the problem

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Steelers' defense dominates Chiefs in the first half

The Pittsburgh Steelers has taken a lot of criticism through the first five games of the season. And it looks like they are taking all that frustration out on the Kansas City Chiefs offense. The Steelers lead 12-3 at halftime and the Pittsburgh defense has been smothering.

The Chiefs defense mustered a single first down and that didn’t come until the final drive of the half. On that same drive Steelers linebacker Vince Williams sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith twice after blowing up the Kansas City running back. Smith finished the half with 23 yards passing and Pro Bowl tight end Travis Kelce has one target and zero catches.

Kansas City came into the game with the league’s best running back in Kareem Hunt. As of halftime he has seven yards on four carries. Defensive coordinator Keith Butler has come out with a new defensive attitude and a gameplan that has baffled the Chiefs.

Let’s see if the Steelers can come out in the second half and maintain this level of intensity.

The Steelers delivered a knockout blow to the last remaining undefeated NFL team, holding on for a 19-13 victory Sunday.

After losing two of the past three games, the Steelers smothered Kansas City’s offense in the first half and held their breath as the Chiefs mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter.

They raised their record to 4-2, alone in first place in the AFC North Division. Kansas City dropped to 5-1.

on third down,The Chiefs were poised on the Steelers’ 40 when James Harrison, sacked Alex Smith back to the 48 with 58 seconds to go.

Le’Veon Bell rushed for 179 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries.

Kansas City scored their first touchdown with 6:13 left in the game on a 57-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to De’Anthony Thomas.

That cut the Steelers’ lead to 12-10,Womens Bryan Witzmann Jersey, but their offense responded in kind.

On third-and-two from their 49 on the next series, Ben Roethlisberger uncorked a medium-range pass toward the left sideline. Cornerback Phillip Gaines tipped the ball right into the hands of Antonio Brown at the 34. Brown then ran into the endzone to complete a 51-yard touchdown.

That put the Steelers back on top by two scores,Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey, 19-10.

neither were the Chiefs through. Two deep passes on their next series gave them a first down at the Steelers’ 15,However, but they could gain no more and rookie Harrison Butker kicked a 33-yard field goal.

The Steelers led 19-13 with 2:17 left, and that’s how it ended.

The third quarter was scoreless but the Chiefs had their biggest play of the game to put the ball at the Steelers 12 on a 37-yard pass from Alex Smith to Kareem Hunt plus a 12-yard penalty against Mike Mitchell for roughing Smith.

as the fourth quarter started,Authentic Demetrius Harris Jersey,However, the Steelers’ defense held again. The Chiefs worked their way to a third down at the three. Hunt got a yard and then Sean Davis broke up a pass in the end zone on fourth down.

The Steelers used a stifling defense and mixed up the run and the pass on offense to take a 12-3 halftime lead.

They scored three different ways in the half — on a safety,Authentic Mitchell Schwartz Jersey, a Bell 3-yard run and Chris Boswell’s 24-yard field goal. Their defense held Kansas City to one first down in the first two quarters.

The Chiefs managed just 6 yards in total offense in the first half to 232 for the Steelers.

Unlike last week when they failed to run much on the NFL’s worst run defense, the Steelers came out pounding against the Chiefs.

Bell ran 17 times for 99 yards in the first half one week after he ran 15 times for 47 yards in the Steelers’ upset loss to Jacksonville at home. He ran eight times for 64 yards on a 75-yard drive that ended with him powering up the middle for a 3-yard touchdown on the first play of the second quarter.

That gave the Steelers a 9-3 lead and also gave Bell 71 yards rushing in one quarter and one play.

Bell was out of the game when Ben Roethlisberger’s pass for Antonio Brown was intercepted by cornerback Marcus Peters and returned 16 yards to the Steelers’ 48 on their next series.

The Steelers then mounted an impressive drive that ended. They moved 93 yards on 12 plays. They had a first down at the two. But Roethlisberger lined up in the shotgun from there on the next three plays. He threw incomplete,Authentic Albert Wilson Jersey, Bell lost four on a deep handoff and a third-down pass did not connect.

Chris Boswell kicked a 24-yard field goal to end that 12-play, 93 yard drive to boost the Steelers’ lead to 12-3.

The Chiefs led 3-2 at the end of the first quarter.

A promising opening drive by the Steelers reached Kansas City’s 34, linebacker Dee Ford got around Alejandro Villanueva to sack Roethlisberger, but on third-and-three, ending that drive.

But then they scored on Kansas City’s first drive when a high snap in the shotgun from the nine by backup center Zach Fulton sailed over quarterback Alex Smith’s head and through the end zone for a safety.

the free kick is like a kickoff ,That did not last long thanks to a gaffe on the next play by Brown. Dustin Colquit punted on the free kick from the 20 and Brown let it bounce. However,so it was a live ball and the Chiefs recovered at the Steelers’ 32.

The Steelers defense held, and Butker kicked a 46-yard field goal to put KC up 3-2.

The top three teams in this week’s power rankings remained the same with the undefeated Chiefs maintaining the top spot.

respectively,The Chiefs are the NFL’s only undefeated team and are followed by a trio of 4-1 clubs. The Packers and Eagles remain in the second and third spots, with the Panthers climbing five spots to No. 4.

The idle Broncos and Falcons, slide up as the Bills, both 3-1, Lions and Rams lost. Making the biggest jump this week were the Jaguars,Authentic Bryan Witzmann Jersey, moved up 12 spots into the top 10 after their defense led a 30-9 thrashing of the Steelers.

Omnisport’s Week 6 NFL power rankings:

1. Kansas City Chiefs (5-0): The Chiefs have yet to see Pro Bowl defensive end Tamba Hali on the field. They lost Pro Bowl safety Eric Reid in the season opener,Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey, outside linebacker Dee Ford a week later, center Mitch Morse in Week 2,Womens Terrance Mitchell Jersey, guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif in Week 4 and wide receiver Chris Conley in Sunday’s win over the Texans. Yet they keep winning and are probably the NFL’s deepest team.

will enter their bye week with the hope of getting healthy for the second half of the season.,2. Green Bay Packers (4-1): Aaron Rodgers was once again magical at AT&T Stadium to beat the Cowboys. Like the Chiefs,Womens Ramik Wilson Jersey, after playing the Vikings and Saints in the next weeks, the Packers also have been able to withstand injuries and

3. Philadelphia Eagles (4-1): Carson Wentz had the best game of his short career against the Cardinals with four touchdown passes for the first time. Things won’t come easy Thursday against a Panthers defense ranked fifth against the pass.

4. Carolina Panthers (4-1): Cam Newton was nearly perfect Sunday in a 27-24 win over the Lions. Thursday’s showdown with the Eagles is shaping up to be a fun quarterback duel.

the Broncos should cruise past the winless Giants on Sunday.,Womens Demetrius Harris Jersey,5. Denver Broncos (3-1): Coming out of their bye week

6. Atlanta Falcons (3-1): Atlanta has the NFL’s fourth-best offense and is eighth in points scored. The Falcons will be tested against a Dolphins defense ranked seventh overall but might benefit from playing a Miami team embroiled in controversy.

7. New England Patriots (3-2): The Patriots continue to win despite the NFL’s worst defense. They can start to take control of the division Sunday with a win over the surprising Jets.

but a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit was too much to overcome. We could see a shootout Sunday in New Orleans.,8. Detroit Lions (3-2): Matthew Stafford nearly led another comeback win Sunday

but the rest of the team should be rested against the winless 49ers.,Womens Mitchell Schwartz Jersey,9. Washington Redskins (2-2): The Redskins will be without Josh Norman Sunday

10. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2): After whipping the Steelers, the Jaguars lead the NFL with a plus-56-point differential. Jacksonville is doing a great job of protecting quarterback Blake Bortles,Womens Albert Wilson Jersey, who threw just 14 passes in Sunday’s victory.

but Seattle forced five turnovers in the win.,11. Seattle Seahawks (3-2): The defense finally looked like "the Legion of Boom" while holding the Rams to just 10 points. The Rams were averaging 35 points per game

12. New York Jets (3-2): Some joked the Jets might not win a game this season. Here they are, after five weeks, tied atop the AFC East with a huge matchup against the Patriots next.

13. Buffalo Bills (3-2): Sean McDermott tried to warn his team about the pitfalls of being over-confident against the Bengals. They’ll surely be stewing over that loss during this week’s bye.

they’ll head to Arizona looking to get back over .500.,14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2): The Bucs were three missed field-goal attempts from beating the Patriots. Now with a new kicker

a flashback to his disappointing rookie season. He’ll have to play significantly better against an opportunistic Jaguars defense Sunday.,15. Los Angeles Rams (3-2): Jared Goff turned the ball over three times against the Seahawks

but at least he snapped his streak of 10 straight games with an interception. He’ll look for his second straight turnover-free game against the Bears.,16. Baltimore Ravens (3-2): Joe Flacco has not played well this season

17. New Orleans Saints (2-2): The Saints defense, especially dinged cornerbacks Sterling Moore and Marshon Lattimore, had better hope it gets enough rest over the bye week with Matthew Stafford and the Lions coming to town.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

6 predictions for rest of Seahawks season

one would think,Left guard Luke Joeckel's absence -- no matter the duration -- is going to mean shuffling of some sort, or someone like Matt Tobin, since the options currently seem to be either Mark Glowinski (benched after two games this year) or rookie Ethan Pocic (hasn't started a game before). Also, because of the increased likelihood Seattle makes a trade soon, Rees Odhiambo's job doesn't seem as secure. Coaches have noted his improvement, for a tackle, which would keep him in the starting lineup and open a spot for either a new face that arrives via trade or free agency, but have offered nothing in terms of assuring his job security. Odhiambo also has the potential to play left guard,Authentic Justin Britt Jersey, an August acquisition brought in to compete for the left tackle spot.

The Seattle Seahawks can officially activate cornerback DeShawn Shead and defensive end Dion Jordan off the physically unable to perform list and non football injury list respectively on Monday. But, it sounds like they won't take that opportunity just yet.

The Seahawks have a five-week window to activate either or both player from the list and at that point,Authentic Jeremy Lane Jersey, they'll be able to practice with the team without costing the team a roster spot. After 21 days from the point they start practice, they'll have to decide whether to place them on the active roster or place them on permanent Injured Reserve.

At any point from now, they're eligible to activate to the active roster but the team would have to free up a corresponding roster spot to activate them.

The Seahawks seem likely to eat into some of their five-week activation window with both Jordan and Shead.

“No,Authentic Jon Ryan Jersey, he won’t make it next week," Pete Carroll said last Monday of Jordan. "He is still a couple weeks away from us getting him back out there. But he is in full conditioning mode right now. He is in football conditioning mode with the trainers and the strength and conditioning staff. He is pushing it. We will see how far he can go and how fast he can go. We will just keep our fingers crossed for him. It has been a long haul for him and we are really pulling for him.”

Jordan is still recovering from a knee procedure before training camp and an ankle injury he suffered while rehabbing from the knee injury. Meanwhile, Shead is still working his way back from tearing his ACL in the team's playoff loss to the Falcons.

“He’s just a couple of weeks now,Authentic K. J. Wright Jersey," Carroll said on Shead."He’s been looking at this Giants game and the week after that, but he’s in full-push mode. He’s trying to get it done. As soon as they let him back out, I know he has a couple of weeks before he can get back out,Authentic Cliff Avril Jersey, he’s coming”

Carroll backtracked somewhat on Shead saying he and Jordan were on similar timelines. But, it sounds like both will return soon, just not Monday or this week for that matter.

Giants end suspension for CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

The New York Giants will get cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie back for their game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The team-imposed suspension has been lifted.

Rodgers-Cromartie got suspended after walking out of practice last week, before the Giants played the Denver Broncos. That was just the final incident in a string of them with the coaching staff,Authentic Mike Alstott Jersey,” though it’s now clear that’s just for one game., and they’d had enough. They suspended him “indefinitely

“Unreal. Giants coach Ben McAdoo says DRC came in today and then chose to leave,” reported NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport back when the news broke. “They intend to suspend him. [He] had words with coach Ben McAdoo after being pulled in Sunday’s game, sources say. It continued today. It got heated. DRC has been a good soldier, doing what was asked. As competitive as he is, playing the slot, getting pulled was too much. The issue between DRC and McAdoo and the coaches was never resolved Sunday. It continued today until the suspension and departure. Crazy.”

The Giants were widely predicted to lose, with cornerback Janoris Jenkins taking his back for six., but their defense was dominant even without Rodgers-Cromartie. They forced Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian into a pair of interceptions

If the Falcons have perfected one thing over the past eight months, it's blowing a big lead to AFC East teams.

The Falcons have two losses this season and both of those losses came after they blew a halftime lead to a team from the Patriots' division. The Falcons might want to just start playing from behind on purpose from now on, just so they can avoid all the jokes that come with blowing a big lead.

Of course, the biggest lead the Falcons have blown recently came in Super Bowl LI when they lost to the Patriots 34-28 in a game where they once held a 28-3 lead in the third quarter. The Falcons will finally get a chance to avenge that loss this week in a game where oddsmakers have labeled them a 4-point underdog (They were a 3-point underdog in the Super Bowl).

The bad news for the Falcons is that recent history hasn't been kind to the Super Bowl loser when they get a rematch with the team that beat them in the prior seasons's Super Bowl. Since Super Bowl I in January 1967, there have been a total of seven rematches played the following regular season.

The last rematch came in Week 1 of 2016 when the Broncos beat the Panthers 21-20 after beating them 24-10 in Super Bowl 50. With the Broncos' win, Super Bowl winners moved to 5-2 in rematch games.

Here's a look at all the Super Bowl rematch games in NFL history with the regular season rematch listed first.

The Raiders are heading into Week 7 on a four-game losing streak and if they want to end that slide, they're going to have to beat a Chiefs team that they can't ever seem to beat. Not only have the Chiefs won five in a row against the Raiders, but they've also won 12 straight overall in the division. Since the beginning of last season, they're 2-5 ATS as a home underdog since 2015, the Chiefs are 7-0 straight up against AFC West teams and 6-1 ATS. The Chiefs also have the NFL's best ATS record (5-1) for the 2017 season. As for the Raiders, which is the third worst mark in the NFL over that span.

the Bills might end up being the smart play. Buffalo is 4-1 ATS this season,There's no line for this game yet because oddsmakers aren't 100 percent sure that Jameis Winston is going to play. The Bucs' quarterback (shoulder) was injured in the first half of Tampa's loss to Arizona on Sunday and didn't return to the game. No matter what happens with Winston, which is the second best mark in the NFL. On the other hand, the Bucs are just 1-4 ATS, which is the third-worst mark in the NFL. Also,Womens Justin Britt Jersey, this game will mark only the second time ever that these two teams have met in Buffalo, in a weird scheduling quirk, where the Buccaneers have never won (0-1).

Although the Bears have struggled over the past year and a half,Womens Jeremy Lane Jersey, they've quietly somehow become one of the safest home underdog bets in the NFL. Sure, the Bears are 4-17 overall since the beginning of the 2016 seasons, the Bears are also 4-2 ATS overall this season,Womens Jon Ryan Jersey, but they're also 7-1 ATS as a home underdog in that span. Not to mention, which is tied for the third-best mark in the NFL this year (The Panthers are 3-3 ATS this year). Cam Newton will also be playing in a city where he's never won: The Panthers quarterback has a career record of 0-2 in Chicago.

the Browns have gone 0-5 ATS since then making them the only team in the NFL that hasn't covered over the past five weeks. Before you even think about betting this game,After covering the spread in Week 1,Womens K. J. Wright Jersey, you'll want to keep an eye on the quarterback situation for both teams. Marcus Mariota has been dealing with a hamstring injury, and although he might play Monday against the Colts, except it has nothing to do with a player being injured. Coach Hue Jackson is going to have to pick his poison and start either Kevin Hogan or DeShone Kizer this week. Kizer got benched in heading into Week 6,Womens Cliff Avril Jersey, there's always a chance he could strain his hamstring. The Browns are also dealing with a quarterback issue, but it wouldn't be a shock to see him get his job back after Hogan threw three interceptions against the Texans. These two teams played in Nashville in 2016 and the Browns covered a 7.5-point spread in a 28-26 loss. 

With Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) possibly out for the season, the 4-2 Packers now seem vulnerable, which is a big reason why they've opened as a 3.5-point home underdog to the Saints. The last time the Packers had to play an extended period without Rodgers came in 2013 when he also injured his collarbone. During Rodgers' seven-game absence that year,Womens Mike Alstott Jersey, the Packers now get a Saints team that has won three straight and covered in each of those games. The Saints' last three wins -- over the Lions, the Packers went 2-4-1 straight up and 1-6 ATS. It wasn't pretty. As if the Rodgers injury wasn't bad enough, Dolphins and Panthers -- have come by an average of 18.3 points per game.

they're going to have to do something they haven't done since 2012: Win in Indy. The Jaguars are on a four-game losing streak at Lucas Oil Stadium.  Although the Jags have had some trouble winning in Indy,If the Jaguars are going to cover in this game, they have done a good job of covering against divisional opponents. Since the beginning of the 2015 season, the Jags are 8-5-1 ATS against AFC South teams, the big question here is whether or not Andrew Luck will play. Although Luck has returned to practice for the Colts, which ranks fifth in the NFL over that span. Of course, the team has given no indication of when or where he might make his first start.

There have been two games in London so far this season and both of them ended up in a blowout with the Saints beating the Dolphins 20-0 and the Jaguars beating the Ravens 44-7. The thing about London is that you never know how a team is going to react to the gigantic time difference, which in this case, which is tied with the Browns for the worst mark in the NFL., will be eight hours for both teams (This game kicks off at 6:30 a.m. local time in both Phoenix and L.A.). The Rams and Cards have given us one of the most even divisional rivalries in football over the past two seasons with the two teams splitting their past four meetings. The one thing you might want to keep in mind here is that the Cardinals are 1-5 ATS this season

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Exits Sunday's game

Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.,Winston was forced out of Sunday's game against the Cardinals with a shoulder injury

Winston had completed five of 10 passes for 61 yards. He was replaced at quarterback by Ryan Fitzpatrick.,Prior to his exit from the game

Fantasy football start/sit Week 6: What to do with Doug Martin

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin admitted to being tired in his first game of the season. He says he’s ready for a regular workload in Week 6 and that having the last 10 days off has been helpful.

That’s good news for fantasy owners, the Arizona Cardinals., and bad news for the upcoming opponent

Fantasy impact: Martin looked good in his return to action against the New England Patriots last week. He rushed the ball 13 times for 74 yards and a touchdown.

The Cardinals present a much tougher matchup on the ground than New England however. Arizona ranks eighth in the league against the run this season. Martin should be able to balance that out a bit with an increased workload.

owners in deep leagues have likely been waiting for him to get back in the lineup. He’s got to be a starter. Those in eight-team leagues might have better options.,While the opponent represents a difficult challenge

Jameis Winston doubtful to return with right shoulder injury

There is worse news for the Buccaneers than being down 24-0 in the second quarter.

Quarterback Jameis Winston has been replaced by backup Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Buccaneers announced that Winston was doubtful to return with a right shoulder injury.

Winston was dropped on his right side by Chandler Jones earlier in the game, as the Bucs are being steamrolled., but remained in the game. He’s 5-of-10 for 61 yards

Winston has started every game since joining the Buccaneers with the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

REMINDER: Fantasy Football Week 7 waiver wire pickups are going to be more quick-hitting since no one likes reading for more than two minutes.

Second reminder: I'm using dollars out of a 100-dollar budget the rest of the way. Percentages at this time of the year are tougher given remaining budgets,Authentic Justin Britt Jersey, you may have to spend more or vice versa., and you know your league best. If it's an aggressive league

especially with the ownership percentages and Jacoby Brissett facing the Jaguars.,Authentic Jeremy Lane Jersey,The Buccaneers pass defense is among the worst in the league… evidence: Carson Palmer last week. They have allowed a minimum of 283 yards and at least one touchdown and 19.1 Fantasy points in each game. Taylor hasn't been terrific this year (putting it lightly) but this is a thin week for streaming quarterbacks

McCown has a higher ceiling and low floor than Taylor, but they have also kept everyone in check. McCown wouldn't be on the radar if not for the limited choices., but the floor is a bit safer against the Dolphins. He's actually faced the Phins already and threw for 249 yards and a touchdown. The Dolphins have allowed a touchdown in each game

Hundley steps into a great offense with plenty of weapons. You can see how risky Hundley is with the three interceptions after stepping in for Rodgers against the Vikings,Authentic Jon Ryan Jersey,Tough blow with Aaron Rodgers potentially lost for the season. But, but the Saints provide a better opportunity. Just know that the Saints also get after the quarterback, and Hundley could mimic Matthew Stafford with multiple touchdowns and turnovers.,Authentic K. J. Wright Jersey, as seen against the Lions

Even if Jameis Winston is out, so just imagine what it looks like without him… or just look at Fitz's numbers. The Bills are coming off the bye having allowed just two touchdowns with eight interceptions this season and would have made it a tough matchup even for Winston.,Authentic Cliff Avril Jersey, Fitzpatrick isn't worth the risk. Most of Fitzpatrick's damage was done in garbage-ish time and with Patrick Peterson on the sideline. The Cardinals defense has been shredded this season outside of Peterson

Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris, but just to double down since neither Ezekiel Elliott backup is at the threshold, and my bet is on McFadden being the lead option. The team used and groomed DMC as the backup in the preseason,Authentic Mike Alstott Jersey, DAL (50%, 54%) – We've discussed this ad nauseam on FNTSY Sports Radio, Zeke could still play this entire season, he's the better PPR option and Morris sees some special team work (why he's seen snaps to date)., pick both up wherever possible! Yes, but on the off chance that the suspension happens, McFadden and Morris must be owned

Obviously, but he's worth mentioning just in case you made the same mistake I did and wrote him off already. Well… was I wrong or what? I know, Peterson is way over the 60-percent threshold, no one saw that coming, never count out Peterson apparently. Peterson just put himself back in the RB2 conversation., don't fall out of your chair in shock that I admitted that. Truthfully, as Peterson looked dead in the water with the Vikings and again with the Saints, plus the Cardinals offensive line is among the worst at run blocking. Well

we all certainly saw that coming, passing the ball 70 percent of the time, and the Broncos run defense was the best in the league. Yet,Speaking of being shocked, here we are with Darkwa having a big game, and if you were watching the game, you heard Cris Collinsworth say multiple times that Darkwa runs where he's supposed to, for now,Womens Justin Britt Jersey, as the Giants ran 60 percent of the time. Because… football. I still don't trust the Giants offensive line, right? The Giants were among the worst in rushing, and he's right. The downside is that Darkwa could struggle if the Giants line reverts back to its woeful ways,Womens Jeremy Lane Jersey, as he isn't adept at finding new lanes/creating his own. Nevertheless, Darkwa is a must-add with the Giants looking to go run-first the rest of the way.

but Forte is going to remain the lead option as long as he's healthy. Even though Forte was just like Peterson (looking 50 years old) before this week,Womens Jon Ryan Jersey,The Jets might have Bilal Powell back as soon as next week, and Elijah McGuire was uninspiring in Week 6., the Jets turn to him first no matter what Powell does

I said it in the preseason,Womens K. J. Wright Jersey, as the timeshare and trade talks increased. Breida didn't see much work against the Redskins, I reiterated it over the first few weeks and reminded everyone once again last week, he's a free agent and the 49ers could start using Breida more to see if he has a future.,Womens Cliff Avril Jersey, but that offense misfired all day. It's doubtful that Carlos Hyde gets traded, but his injury prone-ness is still real, as is the fact that Kyle Shanahan likes Breida. Even if Hyde isn't traded

Haha! I accidentally hit a key or two and ended up with "F Dion Lewis" to start this. If that's not fitting for the Patriots running backs,Womens Mike Alstott Jersey, I don't know what is. I don't know how many times I have to say, "Avoid Patriots running backs" for people to listen, but we all know that could change… next week even!, but then again, people are still playing with kickers. Lewis looks to be Bill Belichick's current favorite

With Rob Kelley continually battling injuries, but Perine had value with a surprising receiving touchdown. Perine is still worth a stash and could push for the lead and tough-yards role., Perine is the tough-yardage option. Week 6 saw Chris Thompson become the lead back

as he had been a rock solid RB2 in PPR over the years. The Lions-Saints game was a high-scoring affair with Riddick delivering a mediocre game,Riddick has been disappointing this season, Riddick could get back to the workload that made him a solid RB2 in PPR., but the good news is that Riddick was tied for third in targets with Golden Tate. With Tate missing time

but he's showing that there's enough left in the tank to provide value if Leonard Fournette were to miss time or even if the Jaguars are running out the clock late and resting Fournette.,Ivory isn't going to have standalone value

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Fumble return TD in Week 6

David (ankle) collected three tackles (all solo) and returned a fumble 21 yards for a touchdown in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals.

David didn't generate much from a tackle standpoint while participating in his first game since Week 3, but David remains an above-average IDP option due to his ability to generate numbers across the stat sheet., but he made an impact play when he picked up a Larry Fitzgerald fumble early in the fourth quarter and took it 21 yards to the house. The tackle total was his lowest in the three games he's played

the Seahawks will bring in former Los Angeles Rams safety Maurice Alexander for a visit this week. The team already employs five safeties on their roster; so this meeting may just be due diligence in case of an emergency.

the Seahawks employ elite starters in Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor while having one of the better backups in the league in Bradley McDougald who can play either safety spot. McDougald started all 16 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2016 and provides some added depth for the Seahawks at their nickel spot in their "big nickel" package designed to add tackling prowess and coverage on big wide receivers/wide receiver-like tight ends.,Currently

The team also drafted two rookie safeties in third-round pick Delano Hill and fourth-round pick Tedric Thompson.

222-lbs -- was a fourth-round pick out of Utah State (Bobby Wagner connection) by the St. Louis Rams in 2014. Over four seasons,Meanwhile,Womens Jameis Winston Jersey, Alexander -- 6-1, before being released last Monday after being inactive vs Seattle.,Womens Doug Martin Jersey, he started in 19 games including the first four of this season

He's appeared in 41 of a possible 53 games in his early NFL career and has 113 tackles, two interceptions and three sacks during that time.,Womens T.J. Ward Jersey, five passes defensed

Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter said X-rays on Winston's injured right shoulder came back negative, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.,Womens Nick Folk Jersey, adding that the quarterback is scheduled to have an MRI when the team gets back to Tampa Bay

suggesting the offense will at least be in decent hands if Winston misses time beyond Sunday. For what it's worth,Winston initially tried to play through the injury in the first half of Sunday's eventual 38-33 loss to Arizona,Womens Bryan Anger Jersey, but Koetter pulled his quarterback from the game after he tossed three straight incompletions on a three-and-out drive early in the second quarter. Ryan Fitzpatrick led the Bucs to 33 second-half points, Greg Auman of The Tampa Bay Times reports. Another update may be available Monday once the Bucs have results from their quarterback's MRI., Winston said after the game that he expects to be back soon

And he was no doubt unaware of what was happening across the country in the Arizona Cardinals’ game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Robey-Coleman did not parse his words.,Womens Demaryius Thomas Jersey,So when Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman was asked whether the addition of running back Adrian Peterson to the Cardinals changed anything as the Rams prepare to play them in London

“Adrian Peterson is not Adrian Peterson in 2008, 2009, and I think everybody knows that.”,” Robey said in the postgame locker room as a few stunned teammates looked on and listened. “He’s not the same Adrian Peterson

760 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Minnesota Vikings. In 2009,In 2008, Peterson rushed for 1,383 yards and 18 touchdowns., he had 1

Peterson, showed Sunday that he still has plenty of ability., 32

Peterson had 134 yards and two touchdowns in 26 carries in host Arizona’s 38-33 victory.,Only a few days after the Cardinals acquired him a trade with the New Orleans Saints

Peterson appears to have filled the void left after star running back David Johnson suffered a wrist injury in Week 1.

Rams coach Sean McVay said Monday that Peterson is a good fit for coach Bruce Arians’ scheme.

“They’re still doing the same things schematically — they’ve just got a great player in Adrian Peterson who’s doing those,” McVay said during a news conference at the team’s hotel. “So I think you just appreciate that, this is a big-time player., hey

“But a lot of their core principles, are a lot of things that David Johnson and those other guys in coach Arians’ system have been doing at a high level as well.”, especially specific to the run game that you saw him having success with [Sunday]

The Rams are 0-2 in London.

In 2012,Authentic Jameis Winston Jersey, they lost 17-10 to the New York Giants at Twickenham Stadium., they lost 45-7 to the New England Patriots at Wembley Stadium. Last season

This will be the Cardinals first time in London. They were scheduled to leave Phoenix on Monday.

The Rams are staying in Jacksonville until Thursday before departing for London.

He’s managing

McVay acknowledged that he remains a work in progress managing timeouts.

“It starts with me,Authentic Doug Martin Jersey, “I’ve got to do a better job with that.”,” he said

But in the fourth quarter against the Jaguars,Authentic T.J. Ward Jersey, 12-play drive that forced Jacksonville to use timeouts. The drive ended with a field goal that gave the Rams a two-score margin., McVay showed growth as he orchestrated a five-minute

McVay gave credit to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and special-teams coordinator John Fassel.

” he said.,“That would be silly not to be able to utilize the valuable experience and some of the approaches and understanding of ‘we’ve been here before’ that I haven’t had

Is Lance Dunbar ready?

McVay said running back Lance Dunbar was healthy and available to start practicing this week,Authentic Bryan Anger Jersey, which comes after the Rams play the Cardinals., but a determination must still be made about whether that will happen now or after the bye week

Dunbar was signed in the offseason to provide a change-of-pace option behind Todd Gurley. He did not participate in offseason workouts or training camp because of a knee issue and was put on the reserve physically-unable-to-perform list.

the player can practice and the team has 21 days to put them on the active roster.,Players who start the season on the list are not eligible to practice for the first six weeks. After that

“There’s a handful of things involved in that discussion,Authentic Demaryius Thomas Jersey,” McVay said., but that’s something that we’ll have to make a decision on here very shortly

Getty Images GLENDALE, AZ - OCTOBER 15: Jameis Winston #3 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers warms up prior to a game against the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium on October 15, Arizona. , 2017 in Glendale

Jameis Winston's MRI results revealed that he suffered a sprained AC joint in Sunday's Week 6 matchup versus the Cardinals and it's uncertain whether or not he'll be suiting up for this week's game versus the Bills.

coach Koetter took a few moments to discuss the severity of the injury to Winston's throwing shoulder and his status heading into Week 7.,During Monday's press conference at One Buc Place

so X-rays were negative,"Jameis had an MRI this morning and he's got a sprained AC joint," Koetter said. "So he'll be day-to-day for right now. No structural damage, but he's sore and of course it's his throwing shoulder so we'll just have to see how it goes during the week.", had the MRI and he's sore. He's sore most weeks

but they haven't decided if it will be the 23-year-old gunslinger himself or Ryan Fitzpatrick that will serve as the team's starting quarterback against Buffalo.,The Bucs believe the injury is something Winston can play through

"Jameis is as tough as they come, but we'll be able to see at some point this week how it's affecting his velocity, how his recovery and his treatment goes."," Koetter added. "That was the thing yesterday when Jameis said he needed to come out. Jameis loves to compete and loves to play but he just felt like he couldn't drive the ball down the field like he needed to. We'll just have to see how these days

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Kansas City Chiefs Live Stream (CBS): Watch NFL Football 2017 Online

or online through live stream (details below).,The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Kansas City Chiefs meet together for a big game on Sunday for Week 6 of the NFL 2017 regular season. The game has a scheduled start time of 4.25 p.m. ET and takes place from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network

Today's game between the Steelers and Chiefs is a huge clash, and they will know how important it is to get the win today and maintain their momentum., and will see the top team in the AFC North go up against the top team in the AFC West. These are two teams that potentially could meet again in the postseason

The Steelers are on 3-2 and are actually tied on that record in the AFC North with the Baltimore Ravens.

However, who play tonight on NFL Sunday Night Football., the Chiefs have been perfect through the opening five weeks and are 5-0 and trying to pull further ahead of the chasing Denver Broncos

The Chiefs are averaging an impressive 414.2 total yards per game so far this season, and 156.2 yards on average coming on the ground., with 258 yards on average coming from the pass

Alex Smith is 121 of 158 for 1,391 yards and 11 touchdowns, with each looking to go past 400 yards today., and will be looking for Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce on the pass

with an average carry of 6.3 yards and a total of four touchdowns this season.,Kareem Hunt will be looking to burst some holes in the Steelers defense. So far this year Hunt has carried 97 times for 609 yards

Earlier this week in the NFL, with the Eagles eventually coming out on top 28-23 in a tight game of football., the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers squared off for Thursday Night Football

Both teams came into that match up on 4-1, where as the Panthers dropped back to 4-2 following a bruising encounter., but it was the Eagles who came away improving their record to 5-1

but the Panthers came up just short when the quarterback's fourth down throw bounced on the ground.,Cam Newton had the chance for a game winning drive

With that win the Eagles are emerging as real contenders for the NFC. They are being led admirably by Carson Wentz, who threw three more touchdowns on Thursday night. Oppositely, which proved costly for Carolina., Cam Newton threw three interceptions

Things had been looking good for the Panthers, with Wentz not able to get going at all for the Eagles., as they took a 10-3 lead in the first half

However, when Luke Kuechly left late in the second quarter following a concussion, and suddenly Wentz was able to find a lot more time on the ball and was able to drive the Eagles into scoring position after scoring position., the game was turned on its head

The Pittsburgh Steelers now have to line up across from Cincinnati Bengals breakout rookie pass rusher Carl Lawson.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin drafted Lawson after pursuing him heavily during the draft process.,In a different timeline

While talking with the media about the Week 7 AFC North clash, according to Jacob Klinger of Pennlive.com.,Authentic David DeCastro Jersey, Tomlin noted he went “heavy” after Lawson last year

“They have a talented young guy to add to the fold in [Carl] Lawson out of Auburn,” Tomlin said. “Looked at him heavy last year in the draft. I was actually down there for his pro day. I had an opportunity to take him out to dinner and so forth. Quality young man, not surprised by the work that he’s doing for them. I think he’s got 3.5 sacks in sub-packages and so forth.”, talented rusher

Lawson has turned heads against all opposition so far after forcing his way onto the field and staying there. His 3.5 sacks are only made more impressive by the fact he’s had at least two negated by flags.

and he’s made some serious history in the process while introducing himself to the NFL:,Authentic Ramon Foster Jersey,Oh

which as the Steelers will point out,Lawson hasn’t had any problems applying consistent pressure,Womens Cameron Heyward Jersey, could be a big problem for Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday.

3-2, at 3:25 p.m. Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. The game will air on CBS (Chs. 5,Here’s The Star’s weekly game preview detailing the key players and matchups for the KC Chiefs’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers,Authentic Marcus Gilbert Jersey, 13).

Head coach: Mike Tomlin, is in his 10th season as the Steelers’ head coach. Tomlin, 103-57, 45, is a former college receiver at William & Mary who is known for his defensive resume. He spent several years as a defensive backs coach in college before landing the same job in the NFL in 2001 with Tampa Bay. He earned a defensive coordinator job with the Minnesota Vikings in 2006 and was hired by the Steelers in 2007. He won a Super Bowl in 2008 and reached the Super Bowl again in 2010.

50,Authentic Cameron Heyward Jersey,Offense: Todd Haley, is in his fifth season as the Steelers’ offensive coordinator. Haley spent three years (2009 to 2011) as the Chiefs’ head coach before landing his current gig. Pittsburgh ranks 12th in passing offense (241.8 yards per game) and 24th in rushing offense (90.0). Pittsburgh is passing the ball roughly 61 percent of the time.

61, is in his third season as the Steelers’ defensive coordinator. Prior to his promotion in 2015,Defense: Keith Butler, he’d spent the previous 12 seasons as the Steelers’ linebackers coach. Pittsburgh runs a 3-4 defense that ranks first in the league in pass defense (139.6) and fourth in sacks (17). The Steelers’ run defense ranks 28th in the league (136.6).

Special teams: Danny Smith, which is 18th in the league. Pittsburgh ranks 32nd in kickoff returns (15.4) and 26th in punt returns (5.5). It also ranks 20th in kick-return coverage (22.3) and 18th in punt-return coverage (7.7)., is in his fifth year as the Steelers’ special-teams coach. Prior to his hire in Pittsburgh, 63, he spent nine years as Washington’s special-teams coach. Kicker Chris Boswell has made 10 of his 12 field goal attempts, and punter Jordan Berry has dropped eight of 23 punts inside the 20

1. Get Kareem the rock

Rookie running back Kareem Hunt is the NFL’s leading rusher for a reason; his combination of elite elusiveness and contact balance make him exceedingly difficult to tackle. That sounds like a nightmare for a Steelers team that surprisingly has one of the league’s worst run defenses. Getting the ball to Hunt early will allow the Chiefs to decipher whether Pittsburgh is selling out against the run, which of course opens other means of attack.

2. Effect Big Ben

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is coming off one of the worst performances of his career, and the Chiefs should be okay against the pass., though –– this guy has a ton of professional pride, a five-interception effort in a 30-9 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Don’t be fooled, and it would be a surprise if he played that poorly in back-to-back weeks. That said, the Chiefs’ pass rush needs to be on point this week. They have to hit Ben and be around him and force him to deliver some questionable throws. Do that

3. Be gap sound and physical

but this is largely the same team that came into Arrowhead Stadium in January and dealt the Chiefs an 18-16 loss. A big reason for that was the play of Le’Veon Bell, who gouged the Chiefs for 170 yards behind an offensive line that dominated its gaps and won at the point of attack. That can’t happen again this week. The Chiefs’ run defense has been fortified with the addition of several solid players in the front seven,The Steelers are 3-2, and it’s on all these guys to shed their blocks and make plays when they see Bell tote the rock.

4. Win the special teams battle

but Danny Smith’s special teamers have earned the respect of Chiefs coach Dave Toub, who said his troops were essentially outphysicaled in the playoff loss in January. That can’t happen again,The Steelers’ return units haven’t been great this season, and the Chiefs can help themselves in this one by winning this phase of the game.

The game has a scheduled start time of 4.25 p.m. ET and takes place from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network

Today's game between the Steelers and Chiefs is a huge clash, and they will know how important it is to get the win today and maintain their momentum., and will see the top team in the AFC North go up against the top team in the AFC West. These are two teams that potentially could meet again in the postseason

The Steelers are on 3-2 and are actually tied on that record in the AFC North with the Baltimore Ravens.

However, who play tonight on NFL Sunday Night Football., the Chiefs have been perfect through the opening five weeks and are 5-0 and trying to pull further ahead of the chasing Denver Broncos

The Chiefs are averaging an impressive 414.2 total yards per game so far this season, and 156.2 yards on average coming on the ground., with 258 yards on average coming from the pass

Alex Smith is 121 of 158 for 1,391 yards and 11 touchdowns, with each looking to go past 400 yards today., and will be looking for Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce on the pass

with an average carry of 6.3 yards and a total of four touchdowns this season.,Kareem Hunt will be looking to burst some holes in the Steelers defense. So far this year Hunt has carried 97 times for 609 yards

Earlier this week in the NFL, with the Eagles eventually coming out on top 28-23 in a tight game of football., the Philadelphia Eagles and the Carolina Panthers squared off for Thursday Night Football

Both teams came into that match up on 4-1, where as the Panthers dropped back to 4-2 following a bruising encounter., but it was the Eagles who came away improving their record to 5-1

but the Panthers came up just short when the quarterback's fourth down throw bounced on the ground.,Cam Newton had the chance for a game winning drive

With that win the Eagles are emerging as real contenders for the NFC. They are being led admirably by Carson Wentz, who threw three more touchdowns on Thursday night. Oppositely, which proved costly for Carolina., Cam Newton threw three interceptions

Things had been looking good for the Panthers, with Wentz not able to get going at all for the Eagles., as they took a 10-3 lead in the first half

However, when Luke Kuechly left late in the second quarter following a concussion, and suddenly Wentz was able to find a lot more time on the ball and was able to drive the Eagles into scoring position after scoring position., the game was turned on its head

The Pittsburgh Steelers now have to line up across from Cincinnati Bengals breakout rookie pass rusher Carl Lawson.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin drafted Lawson after pursuing him heavily during the draft process.,In a different timeline

While talking with the media about the Week 7 AFC North clash, according to Jacob Klinger of Pennlive.com.,Authentic David DeCastro Jersey, Tomlin noted he went “heavy” after Lawson last year

“They have a talented young guy to add to the fold in [Carl] Lawson out of Auburn,” Tomlin said. “Looked at him heavy last year in the draft. I was actually down there for his pro day. I had an opportunity to take him out to dinner and so forth. Quality young man, not surprised by the work that he’s doing for them. I think he’s got 3.5 sacks in sub-packages and so forth.”, talented rusher

Lawson has turned heads against all opposition so far after forcing his way onto the field and staying there. His 3.5 sacks are only made more impressive by the fact he’s had at least two negated by flags.

and he’s made some serious history in the process while introducing himself to the NFL:,Authentic Ramon Foster Jersey,Oh

which as the Steelers will point out,Lawson hasn’t had any problems applying consistent pressure,Womens Cameron Heyward Jersey, could be a big problem for Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin speaks on WR Martavis Bryant reports

to say the least. After defeating the previously undefeated Kansas City Chiefs in an incredible Week 6 matchup,The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a pretty wild past few days, reports came out that wide receiver Martavis Bryant wanted a trade.

but Bryant has just 17 receptions for 231 yards and one touchdown through six games. His yard per catch average has dropped consistently over the past three seasons he’s played,It was strange timing, and he’s become less of a focal point of the Steelers offense.

it seems that it’s somewhat been cleared up., Bryant refuted the report that he had asked for a trade,Then, stating that he’s “good” and all but shutting down those rumors. After a bit of back and forth on the situation

” courtesy of Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette., Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked about the topic and the reports of Bryant wanting a trade, and he seemed to put it to bed pretty quickly. Tomlin stated that he has “no reaction” and that he’s “had good,On Tuesday, fluid communication with Martavis

The obvious hope is that these rumors can now be put to rest and the Steelers can focus on building off their impressive victory over the Chiefs.

Three takeaways from Steelers' win over Chiefs

A Steel Curtain fell on Kansas City Sunday.

meaning the 1972 Dolphins were surely celebrating the Steelers victory., who were thrashed by the Jaguars last week,The Steelers,Authentic David DeCastro Jersey, came into Arrowhead Stadium and shut down the high-powered Chiefs offense in a 19-13 Steelers victory. The Chiefs had been the NFL's last remaining undefeated team

who was sacked twice and under constant pressure. The Steelers got an outstanding effort from linebacker Vince Williams,How did it happen? With pressure up front as the Steelers harassed Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith,Authentic Ramon Foster Jersey, who turned his his best game of the season with a pair of sacks and two tackles for loss.

was held to just 21 rushing yards on nine carries. He did catch five passes for 89 yards to give him over 100 yards of total offense for the sixth straight game., most of which came in the fourth quarter. Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt,The Chiefs were held to 251 yards of total offense,Authentic Marcus Gilbert Jersey, who had over 100 rushing yards in four of five games

Here are three takeaways from Pittsburgh's victory at Arrowhead:

1. Questionable play-calling cost the Chiefs — The Chiefs went nearly the entire first half without a first down and had just three entering the fourth quarter. They kind of got things going in the fourth quarter, but passed up an opportunity to kick a field goal down 12-3 early in the fourth. Smith's fourth-and-2 pass to Demetrius Harris was incomplete and the Steelers took over on downs at their own 4-yard line.

who got within 12-10 with 6:13 remaining on a 57-yard touchdown pass to De'Anthony Thomas. The touchdown should have given the Chiefs the lead,That decision to simply not take the points with a chip-shot field goal came back to bite the Chiefs,Authentic Vince Williams Jersey, instead they still trailed. There wasn't much consistency with the Chiefs offense as the offensive line had one of its worst games.

2. Antonio Brown is clutch — The game wasn't put away until Brown made an incredible catch off what should have been an interception. Ben Roethliberger's third-down pass went right through the hands of Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines. Brown snatched the deflected ball out of the air, took a hit and stayed in bounds before sprinting downfield for a 51-yard touchdown.

you have to wonder what the psyche of the Chiefs players would be. On the surface it is still just one loss,Authentic Cameron Heyward Jersey,The Chiefs have lost their last three against the Steelers. There is no reason to panic for the Chiefs because they are still one of the top contenders in the AFC. But should these teams meet again in the postseason, however. There is a reason only two teams have ever gone through the regular season undefeated and why the '72 Dolphins are the only club to win a championship with an unblemished record.

Steelers Outlast Chiefs 19-13 to Defeat NFL's Last Unbeaten

Le'Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers spent Sunday beating up on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Beating up the goal-post padding, too.

The Steelers' star running back churned out 179 yards and a touchdown in a performance reminiscent of January's playoff victory over Kansas City. And Antonio Brown made an acrobatic touchdown catch in the fourth quarter to help Pittsburgh hand the Chiefs a 19-13 loss — their first of the season.

we find ways to get wins."," said Bell,Authentic Ryan Shazier Jersey,"The biggest thing for us is getting wins, who drew a flag for celebrating his score by throwing haymakers at the goal-post stanchion. "As a team

The Chiefs (5-1) still had a chance after Brown's 51-yard reception made it 19-10, moving quickly downfield and getting a 33-yard field goal from Harrison Butker.

Their defense forced a quick three-and-out, and Tyreek Hill's 32-yard punt return gave them the ball with 1:48 to go.

James Harrison sacked Alex Smith on third-and-10,But after the Steelers (4-2) gave up a first down, and the quarterback's incomplete pass on fourth down left the NFL with no unbeaten teams.

rather than kicking a field goal to get within 12-6.," said Chiefs coach Andy Reid,"We straightened a few things out the second half. That's how we got back in the game, who will no doubt be questioned for going for it on fourth-and-2 at the Steelers 4 early in the fourth quarter

Smith's throw to the end zone fell incomplete and the Steelers took possession.

" Reid said. "I'm preaching to the team to stay aggressive without being stupid,"My gut tells me what to do. I thought that was the right thing there, staying aggressive with it. We had a good play in our pocket that we felt good about. It didn't work out."

Very little worked out for the Chiefs on Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger was 17 of 25 for 252 yards with a touchdown and a pick for Pittsburgh, bouncing back from his abysmal five-interception performance against Jacksonville last week.

who a few weeks ago was flipping over water coolers but spent Sunday slinging high-fives. He had eight catches for 155 yards,His favorite target was Brown, often beating star cornerback Marcus Peters.

' back to the drawing board.", should've been an interception,"The last little touchdown or whatever," Peters said. "It comes with the game of football. Can't do (anything) about it. ... We took an 'L

The game in many ways resembled January's playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium, when Bell churned for 170 yards rushing and the Steelers' defense shut down the Chiefs in an 18-16 victory.

Their defensive dominance was even more impressive considering the circumstances: The Steelers allowed more than 200 yards rushing twice in the past three weeks,Womens David DeCastro Jersey, while Kansas City was averaging 32.8 points and 414.2 yards — and had just piled up 450 in a shootout victory over Houston.

holding the NFL's top-rated passer to 246 yards and a TD., the league's leading rusher,But the Steelers held Kareem Hunt,Womens Ramon Foster Jersey, to 21 yards on nine carries. They also spent the afternoon with their paws on Smith

" Smith said. "They're all hard-fought. They've been physical,"We've played a lot of games against each other. These guys have gotten the last three,Womens Marcus Gilbert Jersey, intense."

Smith nearly rallied the Chiefs down the stretch this time, finding De'Anthony Thomas for a 57-yard touchdown that got Kansas City within 12-10 with 6:13 left in the game.

who caught the tipped ball and ran it 51 yards for the score., whose hard running got them near midfield. And when they faced third-and-2,Womens Vince Williams Jersey,But the Steelers answered with Bell, former Chiefs coach and Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley dialed up a pass down the sideline to Brown

It was Brown's 52nd touchdown catch, passing Lynn Swann for third-most in franchise history.

he held the ball until the last minute and made a play. I tracked it the whole time. He put a lot of wing on it and I was able to get the bounce.",Womens Cameron Heyward Jersey," he said. "He always puts the ball in perfect position and,"Ben made a great throw and those guys couldn't catch it, in that case

Roethlisberger improved to 7-1 against Kansas City. He's won six straight when coming off a game in which he's thrown at least three picks. ... Pittsburgh has beaten a team 5-0 or better seven times in the Super Bowl era. ... Smith has not thrown an interception in 202 attempts. ... Hunt had five catches for 89 yards. ... Chiefs TE Travis Kelce caught a pass in his 54th straight game.

The Chiefs' first turnover since their first offensive play of the season came in the first half,Womens Ryan Shazier Jersey, when backup center Zach Fulton snapped the ball over Smith's head for a safety. But the Steelers gave the ball right back when they inexplicably decided not to field the ensuing free kick.

who had missed three weeks with a hamstring injury,Steelers RT Marcus Gilbert, left in the first half after aggravating it. LB Vince Williams left in the second half with a hip injury after picking up a pair of sacks. ... Chiefs RB Charcandrick West was evaluated for a concussion.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

NHL Power Rankings: Early disappointments edition

thank you.,We know all about how awesome Auston Matthews has been this month

We’re well aware that Nikita Kucherov and Alex Ovechkin could give 50 goals — 60 goals? — a scare with the efficiency of their wicked shots.

and Andrei Vasilevskiy and Corey Crawford are stopping pucks like they want a 2015 Stanley Cup rematch.,adidas Claude Giroux jersey,The Golden Knights are the greatest expansion team that ever expanded

We’ve become familiar with the early feel-good tales of the 2017-18 NHL campaign.

But what about the slow starters and underwhelming performances?

In this week’s evaluation of the hottest teams in hockey, we take a look at an aspect of or player from each team that needs to step up, preferably soon.

The season begins with unbridled optimism. Of course your team can win; any franchise can go on a run! But since sports fans are skeptics, early-season woes can accentuate pessimism. Even initial success can instigate paranoia. In this week's Power Rankings, we offer a reason that each team's fan base should panic. Some arguments are more legitimate than others.

How we rank: We use a panel of voters, and these rankings reflect who voters think would win head-to-head matchups. Higher-ranked teams would be favored against lower-ranked teams. A run of wins doesn't guarantee a jump, and a couple of losses doesn't guarantee a fall.

No need to worry about a sophomore slump for Auston Matthews. But the Leafs were so young last season, someone was bound to regress. Right now it's Mitch Marner, who was demoted to the fourth line after posting a minus-6 through his first five games.

Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook are eating a ton of ice time (25:01 and 22:37 minutes per game, respectively). But outside of the top pairing, the 'Hawks' defense is thin. Newcomer Jan Rutta has been a pleasant surprise, but it's dangerous to rely too heavily on the top guys.

but that streak can't last forever ... can it? Mario Lemieux -- who scored in his first 12 games in 1992-93 -- holds the record.,Nikita Kucherov has scored at least one goal in each of Tampa's first seven games

This team is young and plucky, but the Devils are taking too many penalties. New Jersey is third in the league with 96 PIM so far. And the penalty kill hasn't been stellar: 8 goals allowed on 26 opportunities, for a 77.4 percentage, which is 25th.

Defenseman Zach Werenski scored 21 seconds into the team's first power play of the season. The Blue Jackets have gone 0-14 with the man advantage since.

but let's be honest: Flower is the face of this team.,Marc-Andre Fleury is on injured reserve after sustaining yet another concussion -- and he might have stayed in too long after getting injured. Newcomer Malcolm Subban (aka brother of P.K.) has been terrific

Pittsburgh has allowed a league-high 29 goals through seven games. The New York Rangers had scored only 13 goals in their first six games before pouring four in on Matt Murray on Tuesday. Oh,adidas Ivan Provorov jersey, and the team with the best goalie depth last season might have a liability in backup Antti Niemi, who has an early but ugly 7.94 goals-against average.

Top D-man Matt Niskanen (hand) is on long-term injured reserve, signaling trouble for an already light blue line. GM Brian MacLellan told The Washington Post that he'd consider everything from a trade to promoting prospects,adidas Ivan Provorov jersey, meaning maybe Washington really is backing off its all-in approach this season.

The Blues scored five goals in their season-opening win at Pittsburgh. Since then, they have seen diminishing returns,Authentic Travis Konecny jersey, three each in the two games after that, scoring four against Dallas, two against Florida and just one against Tampa Bay ...

Fans in Nashville had better hope that their team gets it done in regulation. The Predators have lost 21 of their past 27 games decided in the 3-on-3 overtime period.

The Kings are an old team with big contracts that promised they would look brand new this season. And they have,Authentic Wayne Simmonds jersey, thanks to a faster, however, more open brand of hockey. That free-wheeling style,Authentic Claude Giroux jersey, brings with it turnovers: Los Angeles had 48 giveaways in its first four games.

Erik Karlsson is back, but the Senators have to play better at the Canadian Tire Centre. They are 0-1-2 at home,adidas Shayne Gostisbehere jersey, and have been shut out on the power play in those games.

allowing six goals in 24 shorthanded opportunities. It also appears that goalie Steve Mason has already lost his job to youngster Connor Hellebuyck.,The Jets have one of the league's worst penalty kills

The Wild are so banged up, they dressed 45-year-old assistant coach Darby Hendrickson for practice this week. The mounting injuries include Charlie Coyle, Marcus Foligno, Mikael Granlund and Nino Niederreiter -- and another potential setback for Zach Parise.

The plucky Red Wings began the season 4-1, but a tough three-game stretch -- which began with a 3-2 loss to the Lightning on Monday, and includes showdowns with the Maple Leafs and Capitals -- will help gauge whether this team is for real.

Yes, the Ducks are dealing with injuries, but they're also enduring scoring woes. Anaheim is averaging only two goals a game. No matter how good goalie John Gibson is, that's not going to win them enough games.

The 'Canes have played the league's fewest games (four) but already there's concern about the fact that they went two straight without an even-strength goal.

Colorado's surprising early-season surge came to a crashing halt over the past two games, which were both against division foes. The Avs were outscored 7-1 by the Stars and Predators and looked especially sloppy against Nashville, giving up multiple odd-man rushes.

The Islanders are 0-for-20 on the power play. What's worse: they've also given up three shorthanded goals. New assistant coaches Kelly Buchberger and Scott Gomez were supposed to help a unit that ranked 28th last season.

Patrice Bergeron hasn't played this season (lower body injury), but the rest of Boston's centers haven't shown up either. In Bergeron's absence,adidas Travis Konecny jersey, centers David Krejci, Riley Nash and Ryan Spooner have combined for ... zero goals.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Rams' offense for real with Jared Goff, but bad D will slow NFC roll

the next logical question is: Are the Rams for real? Yes, but to keep it really real,The Rams are 2-1 and they've scored 40-plus points in their two wins with Jared Goff dealing and Todd Gurley popping. After holding off the rival 49ers 41-39 in Thursday night's thrilling shootout in Santa Clara, their ceiling is a .500 record.

the impressive. They've done a complete 180 on offense from the end of the stodgy Jeff Fisher era,First,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey, thanks to the diverse play-calling of wunderkind new coach Sean McVay. Goff and Gurley are suddenly a dangerous duo looking worthy of being first-round picks.

possession and slot (Sammy Watkins, the leap in his development shouldn't be too surprising. The improvement has, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp) and a stud left tackle (Andrew Whitworth) on top of McVay in the offseason,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey,Given Goff was handed three legitimate receivers for speed, in turn, created a trickle-down effect in the running game and sparked a big rebound by Gurley. His three first-half TDs vs. the 49ers (two rushing,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, one receiving) allowed him to match his sophomore-slump TD total (six) of 2016.

off and winless as a rookie, 292 yards,Authentic Adam Thielen Jersey, posted the type of nearly perfect performance that's associated with the game's elite QBs (22-of-28 passing,Goff, three TDs,Authentic Joe Namath Jersey, 145.8 rating). He's looking the part of franchise quarterback he was expected to be when LA drafted him No. 1 overall last year.

All that said, neither Goff or Gurley is close to being the Rams' best player. That's Aaron Donald, who finished off the Niners' furious comeback with a ferocious takedown of 49ers QB Brian Hoyer. Unfortunately for Donald, the most dominant defensive player in the league,Womens Leonard Williams Jersey, he hasn't received the type of newfound support Goff and Gurley got, and that will dash any high hopes LA has for making the NFC playoffs.

Donald's dominance aside, two recent NFC powers with top defenses. They had five TDs against the Rams, LA made Hoyer look like he was back with the Patriots and channeling Tom Brady. The 49ers had zero touchdowns in their first two games against Carolina and Seattle, and had game flow been different, Carlos Hyde would have gashed their run defense a lot more — similar to how the Redskins powered through it in Week 2.

Everyone is excited to see whether Goff and Gurley can keep things up at Dallas in Week 4, and then to see if the Rams can cause a changing of the guard in the NFC West when Seattle comes to Los Angeles in Week 5.

Neither the Cowboys nor Seahawks are in sync offensively, but doing it in shootouts against much better teams is the next level. The rest of a tough NFC East and an underrated AFC South remain, but everyone knows where Dak Prescott can go and where Russell Wilson has gone. It's good that Goff was able to find his best self on the field against the Colts and 49ers when he was awful against everyone last season, where the Rams will also face much tougher defenses than will their opponents.

The offensive creativity and explosiveness are here to stay with McVay, but so will the defensive breakdowns under Wade Phillips and around Donald. The Rams aren't exactly the second coming of The Greatest Show on Turf, so it doesn't have enough to overcome just having the Fearsome Onesome.

But inconsistent consistency is a big change from absolute cluelessness. Consider if the Rams are able to get from four wins to 8-8 in McVay's first season — that would still represent a higher floor than any of the five years with Fisher.

Crashing the NFC postseason party is hard when the Cowboys, Seahawks, Packers and, yes, Falcons, the Lions all look like they have staying power. The Rams are learning to walk again, but they are still season away from a run at the playoffs.

Rams and Chargers combined attendance totals are fewer than USC game

The Rams, playing in the cavernous L.A. Coliseum,Womens Adam Thielen JerseyWomens Adam Thielen Jersey, drew just 56,Authentic Leonard Williams Jersey,612 people to their game against Washington. The Chargers meanwhile,000-seat StubHub Center in nearby Carson, had a measly 25,Womens Joe Namath Jersey,381 patrons watch their loss against Miami. The combined attendance for the Rams and Chargers was 81, playing in the 27,993. These numbers are especially low considering that on Saturday night, the USC-Texas game – also played in the Coliseum – had 84,714 fans.

The Rams, to be sure, the official paid attendance was 60, should start getting used to empty seats. During last week’s home win against the Colts,128, though there were far fewer people who showed up.

It’s not entirely bleak for either organization though: The Coliseum and StubHub Center are only temporary homes. In 2020 though, both the Rams and Chargers will share the under-construction Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park.

Rams-49ers Attendance Was Over 70,000, That Should Quiet That Silly Empty NFL Stadium Narrative

As predicted, the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers played a thrilling Thursday night football game. A nation with extremely high expectations for the quality of play was not let down as these two must-see teams delivered. Rams-Niners is as good as it gets. Always has been, always will be.

Perhaps that’s why Levi’s Stadium was packed to the gills with over 70, over 70,000 fanatics. That’s right,000! Want to make something of it?

The attendance figure doesn’t lie.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

Buccaneers can’t afford to let bad performance in Minnesota linger

the Tampa Bay Buccaneers forced the Vikings into their only three-and-out of the game.,Right after cutting Minnesota’s lead to two touchdowns

until it slammed shut with an errant pass by Jameis Winston.,Womens Taco Charlton Jersey,The window for a rally was still open early in the fourth quarter

setting up a field goal that gave the Vikings a three-score lead.,Andrew Sendejo picked it off and returned it 36 yards to the Buccaneers 35

and Mike Evans was mad.,Authentic Jourdan Lewis Jersey,The momentum was gone

the Buccaneers took several steps backward in a 34-17 defeat on Sunday by the Vikings .,The star wide receiver stomped around on the sideline before kicking a water bottle and shoving over a towel cart . After a commanding victory over the Bears in Chicago to start their season

“I can’t do that. I’m a captain. I got to fight my emotions better than that,” Evans said. “Playing with passion is cool,Womens Ryan Switzer Jersey, but I’ve got to fight my emotions better than that, and I’ve got to understand it’s just one game. I wanted this one bad.”

Evans, who was shadowed by Pro Bowl cornerback Xavier Rhodes, had a quiet seven catches for 67 yards. DeSean Jackson, the intended target on the pass Sendejo intercepted, had four receptions for 84 yards and one touchdown. But the Buccaneers (1-1) were playing from behind from the start.

Winston went 28 for 40 for 328 yards, but he was picked off three times, twice in the end zone.

“I make the final decision on where the ball goes, and I’ve got to protect the football at all costs no matter what they do,” Winston said.

Now the Buccaneers, with injuries to several key players on defense, play twice in the next 11 days with the New York Giants and New England Patriots visiting.

“Hopefully we can get the taste out of our mouth,” Jackson said. “It’s still a long season, and we have 14 games to go.”

after they took a knee with their hand on their heart during the “Star Spangled Banner” to join the rebuke of President Donald Trump’s recent obscene remarks about players protesting social justice by kneeling during the national anthem.,Evans and Jackson were in the spotlight all afternoon

“However anyone takes it,” Jackson said. “It’s more unity than anything. We don’t want to be individualized., I’m a firm believer that everyone has their own rights

“We don’t want to take away from our overall goal, we do have feelings toward things that are being said out there in the world.”, which is to go out there and play football. But at the same time

Evans was even more pointed with his criticism of Trump.

” Evans said. “It seems like he’s trying to divide us.,“It was very childish on his part

Vikings Offense Dominates Bucs: Instant Reactions

The Vikings turned in their best all-around performance of the season,Authentic Randy Gregory Jersey, when everything seemed to go wrong., controlling Tampa Bay on both sides of the ball from whistle to whistle to move to 2-1 on the season. It was the polar opposite of week two

namely Stefon Diggs,The Viking offense has not looked this good in a long time. Pat Shurmur had the perfect gameplan for backup quarterback Case Keenum,Authentic Chaz Green Jersey, starting his second straight week in place of the injured Bradford. He concentrated on getting the ball out quickly and putting it in the hands of play-makers as much as possible, who had career-highs in both touches and yards from scrimmage. The balanced attack set up the Vikings for success early and they never took their foot off the gas., Adam Thielen and Dalvin Cook. That especially meant meant a lot of action for Cook

While last week it seemed Keenum was limited in terms of the playbook,Authentic Taco Charlton Jersey, today he looked like he had been the starter since training camp. Every throw, every dropback and rollout was on display and Keenum took advantage with the finest performance of his career., every route

Perhaps even more impressive was Minnesota’s defensive effort. The Bucs are known for their vertical passing attack but Jameis Winston could never get anything going. Though Winston threw for over 300 yards,Womens Chidobe Awuzie Jersey, the Vikings picked him off three times and Xavier Rhodes in particular kept the ball away from his favorite target, carrying only nine times for 26 total yards., Mike Evans. Tampa Bay barely even attempted a running game

Stefon Diggs could not be stopped,Authentic Ryan Switzer Jersey,Keenum undoubtedly gets the game ball but in terms of who else stood out, it was a tale of two halves. In the first half, ultimately finishing with eight catches for 173 yards., having over 100 yards receiving and a touchdown before the break. He added a 59-yard touchdown early in the third quarter

In the second half, the Vikings took advantage. Cook added five catches for 72 yards out of the backfield., Minnesota turned over to Dalvin Cook. Cook was a workhorse in the running game with 27 carries for 97 yards and touchdown but where he really stood out was as a pass-catcher. Cook’s ability to make plays in the open field was his greatest draw coming out of college and for the first time this season

But this game was about Case Keenum. Bradford’s absence was not felt at all as Keenum matched Bradford’s week one performance, completing 75.8 percent of his passes for 369 yards, number one pick and Pro Bowler and Winston was the journeyman., three touchdowns and a rating of 142.1. Anyone coming into the game blind would assume that he was the former Heisman winner

Once again, Xavier Rhodes deserves mention for his one-on-one coverage against a top receiver. Mike Evans incites mismatches even more than Antonio Brown does purely because of his size and strength but Rhodes kept Evans quiet the entire game. Recording just 67 yards on seven catches (most of which came at the end with Rhodes off the field), Rhodes was in Evans’ head., the only noise Evans made was when he threw an ice tub on the sideline following a Winston interception. Needless to say

Trae Waynes looked overmatched several times in one-on-one match-ups with DeSean Jackson. He did not get beat deep as often as last week but he lost Jackson downfield several times. He made up for it later by intercepting Winston with a nice play on a deep ball.

Tramaine Brock, was a dud in his first Viking action. After being inactive the first two weeks of the season, on the other hand, Brock lost sight of the ball on a go route and allowed Jackson to leap over him for an uncontested touchdown catch. An inauspicious start to be sure for a guy the Vikings may look to in more nickel packages down the road., he got in late with Minnesota up three scores and immediately committed a pass interference penalty. Then, just a couple of plays later

Minnesota looks like one of the NFC’s most complete teams moving forward. They have elite players at just about every position, they can beat anybody., and as long as they get adequate quarterback play

Since it was confirmed this morning that Bradford does not have structural damage in his knee, fans have to feel secure about that as the Vikings gets their first division match-up next week against Detroit at U.S. Bank Stadium., Womens Jourdan Lewis Jersey,he will return to quarterback Minnesota sooner rather than later. But a bone bruise will take time to heal so figure at least one more week with Keenum. After today’s performance

which ultimately helped Case Keenum shine.,Authentic Chidobe Awuzie Jersey,The Tampa Bay Buccaneers walked out of U.S. Bank Stadium with their first loss of the season after the Vikings defeated them 34-17. The Bucs were without several of their starters and key playmakers

while the Vikings improve to 2-2 overall. Here are a few things we learned from the Bucs’ Week 3 loss.,Womens Randy Gregory Jersey,The Bucs now fall to 1-1

Tampa Bay’s defense struggled immensely without its starters

Chris Baker and Brent Grimes. The defense struggled significantly and was unable to stop quarterback Case Keenum,The Bucs were without a handful of starters on defense, including Kwon Alexander,Womens Chaz Green Jersey, culminating in its loss., Dalvin Cook and the rest of the Vikings’ offense Sunday. Tampa Bay consistently didn’t generate plays or protect the football

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

they get blown out at home by the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, sitting at a crossroads of the season at 3-2,Womens Carson Wentz Jersey,The Steelers have been a Jekyll and Hyde team all season. Once you think that you have them figured out, it looks like the Steelers have found their identity and have stuck with it for two of their most impressive wins of the season.

it is true,Authentic T. J. Watt Jersey, this defense is better than the offense. This is fine. In fact, this is probably for the better. Of the 51 Super Bowls played,Womens T. J. Watt Jersey,This is a defensive first football team that can run the football effectively and win with their game manager of a quarterback. Before the season the only line that would have sounded even the slightest bit sane is the fact that this team can run the football. However, the better defense has won 43. Defenses win championships.

held to 13 points against Pittsburgh. The Bengals were on a tear with their new offensive coordinator,The Kansas City Chiefs were the hottest offense in the NFL, scoring 20 points in three straight games. The Steelers produced four sacks and two turnovers while limiting the Bengals to just 14 points.

and letting them breath. Over the past four games,Part of the strength of the defense is that the offense is chewing up the clock, Le’Veon Bell has had 30 carries in three of them. They are 3-1 over this span. Do you want to guess which game they lost? Bell is consistently picking up yards on first and second down and is consistently putting the team in easier situations.

he has turned the ball over once, and it was to the fault of Antonio Brown,Their quarterback has a Hall of Fame name but is not playing at his highest level. The run game is making that no longer a concern. Roethlisberger is no longer forced to throw the ball deep early into games. He is responsible for making the safe play and avoiding the turnovers. Since his five-interception game, not Roethlisberger.

The Steelers have failed to put two consistent gameplans together all season. They finally did so on Sunday and saw two of their most impressive wins of the season. The Steelers have figured out the formula. Now, the question will be if they can stick to it because it should see them winning a lot of games this season.

JuJu Smith-Schuster hid his eyes, counted to 10 and went looking for Le'Veon Bell.

The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver found his team's star running back crouching behind the goalpost, then proceeded to chase Bell all the way to the sideline as part of a hastily planned touchdown celebration.

"That was just us being dramatic," Bell said with a smile.

NFL Network and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have maintained that the request was made and Bryant made it clear on Sunday that he’s upset with two since-deleted Instagram comments complaining about JuJu Smith-Schuster and their respective roles in the offense. Now,However, the Steelers have little choice but to explore their trade options.

Bryant missed the entire 2016 season to a suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy and has struggled to regain the trust of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the coaching staff. Through Week 7, Bryant has just 18 catches for 234 yards and a score.

Bryant was being targeted an average of 8.4 times per game in 2015,He’s been targeted an average of 5.1 times per game this year. Prior to serving his suspension last season, so his usage is very clearly down.

Even on the targets he’s receiving, it’s clear that he and Roethlisberger are simply out of sync. Bryant is averaging just 6.5 yards per target in 2017 against the 8.3 yards per target he averaged in 2015.

Add in the potential locker room distraction he’s becoming and now seems like as good an opportunity as any to move on from a player they simply don’t feel they can rely upon anymore.

They can use the reps they free up to reincorporate Eli Rogers into a more prominent role in the offense after he was integral to their success in 2016. It’d also allow for them to experiment with Justin Hunter in Bryant’s big-play role after he impressed enough to earn a job during training camp.

Smith-Schuster could also benefit from an increased workload, as well, as he’s developing a nice rapport with Roethlisberger. He could get some additional work on the outside,Authentic Brian Dawkins Jersey, allowing the Steelers to test the limits of their talented rookie wideout.

Of course, too. He’s in a contract year and, though his talent is evident,Authentic Carson Wentz Jersey, moving Bryant to a team that has serious interest in using him in a more prominent role is good for him, he’s going to have a hard time landing a big payday due to questions about his reliability unless he’s got the production that allows interested parties to look past that.

Going to a team like the Bears where he could be the No. 1 wide receiver and build a rapport with a rookie quarterback like Mitchell Trubisky sets him up with an opportunity to prove his value. And that appears to be what he wants more than anything.

After recording two convincing victories in a row,T. J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey, a fact not lost on the Las Vegas oddsmakers. Pittsburgh opened as 3 point favorites for their matchup with the Detroit Lions in Week 8, the Pittsburgh Steelers appear to be finding their identity in 2017, a spread that still stands as of Tuesday.

An opening totals position of 45 points has also remained constant and is still widely available. The most significant change so far this week has been to an initial money line of -147 to +125,Authentic T. J. Watt Jersey, and even that has been marginal. Most online sportsbooks are still offering an average of -150 to +130.

If not for the infamous coin flip game of 1998, he has only faced Detroit twice. The last meeting was a 37-27 victory for the Steelers at home in 2013. In a series that dates back to 1934,Womens Alejandro Villanueva Jersey, Pittsburgh would have won their last nine against Detroit dating back to 1986. While Mike Tomlin has never lost to the Lions, Pittsburgh holds a narrow lead by a margin of 16-14-1.

For the season, the Steelers are 4-3 against the spread and 1-6 versus the over. Taking a chance on Pittsburgh to cover the spread looks to be the best play of the week in this contest.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant appears to be asking for a trade again when he posted "give me what I want" on social media.

Bryant on a since-deleted Instagram post late Sunday night also called out rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who caught a 31-yard touchdown in the the Steelers' 29-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon.

"He wants out," a source close to Bryant told ESPN. "Point blank."

A post from "FantasyFootballCounselor" showed a video of Ben Roethlisberger overthrowing Antonio Brown on third-and-1 and criticized the Steelers quarterback for forcing the ball to Brown rather than throwing to Bryant.

Bryant responded in the since-deleted comment that was screengrabbed and shared on social media.

"JuJu is no where near better than me, fool," Bryant posted in response. "All they need to do is give me what I want and y'all can have JuJu and whoever else."

Bryant then clarified those remarks with a new comment that tagged Smith-Schuster.

"JuJu is the future and got great talent and is going to be one of the best to play this game, period, point-blank. Ain't nobody did nothing to get me back. I worked my ass off to get myself back with no help and little support," Bryant commented. "I want him to get his. I just want mines, period. In due time the process will show."

Roethlisberger targeted Smith-Schuster three times in Sunday's win and twice to Bryant.Womens T. J. Watt Jersey, who had one catch for 3 yards.

Last week, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that sources informed him of Bryant's trade request because of lack of playing time, adding that Steelers teammates and coaches are well aware that the receiver is unhappy.

ESPN confirmed the report, citing Bryant's unhappiness with his role in the offense. Bryant then told reporters last Monday he had not requested a trade.

"I'm good ... That's up to the coaches," Bryant said when asked about his role in the offense.

Bryant, 25, missed the entire 2016 season due to a suspension by the NFL for multiple drug violations under the substance-abuse policy. He has 18 catches (36 targets) for 234 yards and one touchdown in seven games this season.

Bryant has 94 career receptions for 1,548 yards and 15 touchdowns in 28 regular-season games since being drafted in the fourth round out of Clemson in 2014.

Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant missed Monday's required team meetings, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

One of Bryant's teammates told Bouchette that Bryant "called in sick."Womens Brian Dawkins Jersey,T. J. Watt Vapor Untouchable Jersey, Bryant wasn't in the Steelers locker room during Monday's open session.

After the Steelers win over the Bengals on Sunday, Bryant left comments on a post from "FantasyFootballCounselor" on Instagram. The original post shows Ben Roethlisberger overthrowing Antonio Brown on third and 1 with the words "What Type of throw is This?" written above. The caption criticizes Roethlisberger for forcing the ball to Brown rather than throwing to Bryant.

After a commenter tagged Bryant to tell him rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was better,Authentic Alejandro Villanueva Jersey, Bryant responded with the following comment, lightly edited for clarity.

Bradford and Keenum,Navigating Vikings' QB quandary with Bridgewater

There's an old football adage that says, “If you think you have two starting quarterbacks, you actually have none."

Well, what if a team has three starting quarterbacks? That’s a situation the NFC North-leading Vikings could soon face. Interestingly enough, all three players have proven to be quality NFL starters.

Teddy Bridgewater's potential return, plus Sam Bradford's injury and Case Keenum's solid play, means a quarterback quandary is unfolding for Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer.

and in stepped Case Keenum. The backup has played better than expected,After a solid 2016 season, Bradford opened 2017 with the best game of his career in a win over the Saints. But he once again injured his left knee in the process, winning three of his five starts, not including his relief of a not fully healed Bradford during a win over the Bears.

Bridgewater, who started as a rookie and in Year 2 led the Vikings to a division title with a Pro Bowl season, returned to practice last week for the first time since he suffered a devastating knee injury late in the 2016 preseason.

his contract could be tolled (although that may be challenged via grievance),Spielman and Zimmer will have to make a call on Bridgewater in two weeks, when the QB’s three-week window to practice under the physically unable to perform (PUP) list ends and rules dictate he must either be activated or placed on season-ending reserve PUP. If Bridgewater stays on PUP, which is an important factor since the Vikings did not exercise his fifth-year option. Bridgewater could become a free agent after this season if activated, or if he were to win a grievance on the tolling issue.

is the wiser call.,If I were in the shoes of Spielman and Zimmer, I would love not to have to activate Bridgewater and hope the team indeed could toll his contract for one additional year. In that case,Womens Trevor Siemian Jersey, I would know I have at least one of my quarterbacks under contract for 2018. It’s hard not to reward Bridgewater for his commitment to rehab, but the Vikings holding off on activating him, and therefore giving him one more year to strengthen his surgically repaired knee

which is followed by a tough stretch (LA Rams,The Vikings should handle the winless Browns in London on Sunday behind Keenum,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey, a revived running game and their suffocating defense. Then there's the bye week to give Bradford more time to heal prior to the game at Washington, at Detroit, at Atlanta and at Carolina).

If Bradford can overcome his knee problem and return to the lineup in top form, he gives the Vikings the best chance to reach their first Super Bowl in 41 years. Then they can have Keenum ready to step back in if needed. The Vikings probably would like to get their $18 million worth out of Bradford. He and Keenum are potential free agents next March,Womens Linval Joseph Jersey, which further complicates things.

and Randall Cunningham took over. Cunningham played so well he became NFL MVP that season and led our team to a 15-1 regular-season record. Johnson never got his starting job back and was traded in the offseason.,When I was Vikings GM in 1998, but he sprained his ankle in Week 2,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, we faced a similar situation. Brad Johnson was our starting quarterback

Steelers or Chiefs.,The difference here is Keenum does not have the track record Cunningham had from his years as a top starter in Philadelphia. So even if he is playing well, not to mention if the Vikings are fortunate enough to become the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium — against a team like the Patriots, Keenum is not the better option over a healthy Bradford. That’s especially the case if the Vikings find themselves in an NFC playoff matchup against the likes of the Eagles with Carson Wentz or the Seahawks with Russell Wilson their stout defense

in which case they could turn the franchise over to Bridgewater again and try to bring back Keenum as the No. 2.,All three quarterbacks returning to Minnesota next season is extremely unlikely, or they could decide to part ways with no dead money incurred, as Keenum surely will seek a starting role or a much higher-paying backup job elsewhere. The Vikings could put the franchise tag on Bradford

veteran free agent to the mix as they did when they signed Keenum.,If Minnesota is confident Bridgewater will make a successful comeback, lose Keenum in free agency and go with Bridgewater and practice squad QB Kyle Sloter. The Vikings then could draft a QB or add a cheap, another possible scenario is more risky considering he will have missed two seasons: Let Bradford walk

as players like Anthony Barr and Danielle Hunter are poised to join the high-salary stratosphere where Everson Griffen and Harrison Smith already reside. The Vikings also will need the funds to extend star wide receiver Stefon Diggs if they believe he can overcome his early-career injury bug.,Letting go of Bradford would free up cap money Minnesota so could keep its dominant defense intact

that's what Spielman and Zimmer would love to get out of Bridgewater. But the NFL is rarely a perfect world.,The Vikings likely feel they can emulate the Seahawks’ strategy of having a dominant, as was the case with Russell Wilson before he hit his big payday. In a perfect world, high-salaried defense made possible by a lower-paid starting quarterback

All these possibilities at quarterback, which will impact the defense and the rest of the roster, make the Vikings a fascinating team to watch the rest of this season and into 2018.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

You won't see the Eagles' feeling sorry for themselves over the season-ending injury to middle linebacker Jordan Hicks.

In fact, they're confident they can replace him while maintaining their standing as the top rushing defense in the NFL.

Hicks called the defensive plays through the microphone in his helmet (only one designated player is allowed to have a microphone in his helmet on defense),Sure, and he was one of the Eagles' steadiest players.

But as defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz put it: "We've already played a lot of football without him this year, so it's nothing that we haven't done before."

which he re-injured Oct. 12 against Carolina,Hicks missed most of the game against the New York Giants on Sept. 24 after suffering an ankle injury, when he missed the entire second half.

That was followed by HIcks' torn Achilles suffered on the second play of the game Monday night in the Eagles' 34-24 win over Washington.

and will continue to have it beginning this Sunday against the winless San Francisco 49ers. Schwartz said that isn't a big deal,Nigel Bradham had the headset in his helmet after Hicks left Monday, either.

everybody can hear,"I mean," Schwartz said. "It's not like there are calculators and protractors and everything else that's required for that. You hear something and you say it again. You could put a tape recorder out there and do it."

That's not to diminish Hicks' impact. It's just that the Eagles feel confident that they can replace him.

but will also include Mychal Kendricks, who has clamored for more playing time ever since Schwartz became the defensive coordinator in 2016 and took Kendricks off the field whenever the Eagles went into their nickel defense –about 70 percent of the games,That will begin with Bradham, on average.

about 44 percent of the snaps, and playing better. But now,Kendricks admitted to asking for a trade last winter after playing just 27 percent of the snaps in 2016. He is playing more this season, he'll play all the time — as long as he's healthy, which has also been an issue for him.

what he personally wanted was an expanded role, and he’s definitely going to have that,"For him,Authentic Cameron Sutton Jersey," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said.

Kendricks sat out the Eagles' game last Monday against Washington because of a hamstring injury. But Kendricks has been a full participant in practice so far this week, a strong indication that he'll be ready to play an entire game against the 49ers.

he’s been really into it, probably the most focused that I’ve seen him,"This offseason,Authentic James Conner Jersey," Jenkins said. "We’ve created packages specifically for him to be on the field, where we’ve taken off every linebacker but him."

And then there's Najee Goode, who will play middle linebacker when the Eagles are in their base defense.

the last five with the Eagles. He is more known for his special teams work. Goode got off to a rough start Monday when  he first came into the game, especially when tight end Vernon Davis beat him for a 31-yard catch. He was also out of position on Washington's first touchdown,Womens Joshua Dobbs Jersey,Goode has started just two games in his six-year career, a 7-yard reception by Chris Thompson.

But Goode settled down after that, and ended up with four tackles.

like none, he had no idea, that Mike was going to be inactive,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey, and no idea that Jordan was going [to get hurt]," Bradham said. "He went into that game blind,"Coming into that game, so for him to do the things that he did on the fly,Authentic Javon Hargrave Jerse, that was huge.

just all film study,"To step up in a week with no [on-field] preparation, said a lot about his character."

Goode typically doesn't get any reps at linebacker with the first-team defense, and focuses most of his video work on special teams. That changed this week.

but more so just getting into a rhythm," Goode said. "Being familiar with the position at [weak-side linebacker] and moving over to [the middle],"It wasn't necessarily an adjustment, that was more just getting into the rhythm of the game. And as the game kept going, I was able to get better."

that might not be much of an issue. Also,Goode will have to keep getting better. But if the Eagles are in nickel most of the game, Bradham has played every snap this season and is having a strong season.

from 2012-14. He had 13 tackles filling in for Hicks against the Panthers,Kendricks played just about every down in his first three seasons in the NFL, the most tackles by an Eagles player in a game this season.

That's why the Eagles aren't expecting much of a dropoff without Hicks.

" Bradham said. "I feel like we showed we got depth. That’s proven. As long as we can continue to show that, we’ve got faith in all our guys. We might not have the big names,"I feel very confident, but we gotta be something if we’re the best team in the league right now.

"We don’t get a lot of attention, but we don’t need it."

And they certainly don't want that attention for not playing well.

while Halapoulivaati Vaitai will play left tackle in place of Jason Peters, who is out for the season after tearing his ACL and MCL against Washington. The Eagles kept Johnson on the right side because they were reluctant to change two positions on the offensive line ... CB Ronald Darby continues to practice,Lane Johnson is staying at right tackle, but on a limited basis. That could be an indication that he won't return Sunday after suffering a dislocated ankle in the season opener on Sept. 10. Darby also practiced on a limited basis last week.

Eagles dealing with injuries as they host 49ers

The instant euphoria of owning the best record in the National Football League quickly turned to bittersweet reality one day later for the Philadelphia Eagles due to season-ending injuries to two key players.

After improving to 6-1 following a 34-24 victory over the Washington Redskins on Monday, the Eagles were jolted with the news that All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters (MCL and ACL) and linebacker Jordan Hicks (ruptured Achilles tendon) would be lost for the remainder of the season.

who have won five straight,The Eagles, will host the San Francisco 49ers (0-7) on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Only the 49ers and Cleveland Browns remain winless in the NFL.

and we’ve seen it already in the first two months of the season,“This is a resilient group,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. “It’s a great testament to the guys again (Monday) for battling and finishing the game.”

look for a group effort in replacing Hicks with Mychal Kendricks,Halapoulivaati Vaitai replaced Peters at left tackle and is likely to start against the 49ers. Meanwhile, Najee Goode and Joe Walker combining at linebacker.

” Vaitai said when asked about his role moving forward. “If they ask me to play center, I will play center. This is my job,“Wherever the coaches tell me to go, and I have to play wherever they want.”

the Eagles have started 6-1 or better for the ninth time in franchise history. The last time occurred in 2004,Thanks in large part to the stellar play of quarterback Carson Wentz, when they began 7-0 and advanced to the Super Bowl before losing to the New England Patriots.

Wentz was 17 of 25 for 268 yards and four touchdowns to four different players against Washington. Womens James Conner Jersey,He already has 17 touchdown passes this season, one more than all of last season when the Eagles finished 7-9.

Wentz is the first Eagles quarterback since 1950 to throw 17 or more touchdowns and no more than four interceptions through the first seven games of the season. He is also the youngest quarterback to have those statistics since 23-year-old Dan Marino accomplished the feat in 1984 with 20 touchdowns and four interceptions.

” Wentz said. “That’s something that makes, I think,Womens Cameron Sutton Jersey,“I just have a ton of confidence in our guys,Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey, our offense tough to defend, that we have guys everywhere that can step up and make plays.

Regardless of who is healthy, the Eagles will continue to compete. That mantra has been instilled in the team from the first day of training camp.

I don’t think of necessarily being 6-1,Authentic Artie Burns Jersey,“Quite honestly,” Pederson said. “I think of it as just getting better each week. We have to win each week. We have to be 1-0 each week. That was our challenge this past week and for going into this game. We don’t talk about those types of things outside of the building.”

the 49ers have been competitive this season,Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey, The 49ers struggled mightily last Sunday in a 40-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. For the most part, losing five games by three points or fewer.

A mixture of injuries and young players has made the situation quite difficult for coach Kyle Shanahan.

” Shanahan said. “We’re trying to build an organization,Womens Artie Burns Jersey,build it from the bottom to the top the right way,“We’re just not trying to win enough games to make it look acceptable, so we can have sustainable success.”

and his availability is unknown for Sunday. Linebacker Reuben Foster sustained a rib injury, but X-rays came up negative,Womens Sean Davis Jersey,San Francisco right tackle Trent Brown entered the concussion protocol, and he is expected to play against the Eagles.

including 15 rookies,The 49ers feature 32 players who have less than four full seasons in the league, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Shanahan refuses to make any excuses.

” Shanahan said. “There’s not really a situation on our team where we’re just saying, and that will always be the most important thing to me at the time, ‘Hey, play the young guy because he’s younger,’ while we have a better player sitting right there on the bench. So, we take all that into account. Yeah,“My first decision is what gives us the best chance to win every Sunday, we do have a lot of rookies out there, but it’s not just because we’re deciding based off age who should play.”

making his first NFL start Sunday,Quarterback C.J. Beathard, was 22 of 37 for 235 yards with two lost fumbles against the Cowboys. Beathard was also sacked five times.

San Francisco will return home for three consecutive games against the Arizona Cardinals,After the trip to Philadelphia, the New York Giants and the Seattle Seahawks.

Re: L'ALLEMAGNE LA FRANCE ET L'ÉNERGIE

For the second straight game,Womens Senquez Golson Jersey, the Birds are in primetime. And this time, it's in front of the home fans.

the 5-1 Eagles host the 3-2 Redskins Monday night.,Womens Sammie Coates Jersey,Following last week's Thursday night win over the Panthers

It's a massive opportunity to sweep the Redskins and take control of the NFC East.

Our experts provide their predictions for Week 7:

with the only loss to the same Chiefs team that handed the Eagles their only loss. The 'Skins are sixth in offense and 12th in defense. They lead the NFL in yards per pass play. They can be explosive. They're eighth in rush defense. Nothing will come easy for the Eagles Monday night. But the Redskins are not coming into the Linc and winning. Eagles go to 6-1 and virtually clinch the NFC East Monday night with a win.,Do you really think I'm going to pick against the Eagles now? Heck,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey, I might not pick against them the rest of the year. Maybe at Seattle. Honestly, and Monday night will be a good test - the Redskins are 3-1 since losing the opener to the Eagles, I look at the schedule and the way they're playing? The way Carson Wentz is playing? Unless something fundamental changes - which in this league is always possible - it could be a while before they lose a football game. The Eagles are rolling in all phases

Washington seems like a much more dangerous team than the one the Eagles faced in the opener on Sept. 10.

But the Eagles are a heckuva lot more dangerous too.

Washington has gone 3-1. But the Eagles have gone 4-1 with the one loss coming to the Chiefs. The Eagles have the best record in football. ,Since the Eagles went to Washington and came away with a win in the opener

they shouldn't head into this Monday night game expecting a cakewalk but they should absolutely expect to win. They're the better team. ,So sure

Kirk Cousins has played well as of late but the Eagles' defensive line was able to get after him in Week 1. If that group does it again, it won't matter how good Cousins is throwing the ball. As good as Cousins has been recently, Wentz has been equally impressive, vaulting his name into the forefront of the MVP conversation. This week he'll go against a banged up Washington secondary.

The Eagles have a chance to further extend their lead in the NFC East and they shouldn't have a problem doing it.

Because they have the best record in the NFC, the Eagles have a huge target on their backs and everybody is gunning for them. On Monday night, the Redskins are hoping to take them down a notch. The ‘Skins come limping to the Linc. Their star rookie defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is done for the year with a Lisfranc injury. Their starting cornerbacks Josh Norman (rib) and Bashaud Breeland (knee) both might miss this key divisional showdown.

averaging 18.9 yards per catch.,Wentz has the Eagles' offense rolling, and the defense has been rock solid against the run. Cousins will go after a Birds secondary ranked 29th against the pass (273.5 yards per game). One of the key matchups to watch closely is how the Eagles will try to defend against ‘Skins running back Chris Thompson, he's their leading receiver, who is Washington's leading rusher. More importantly

but since then he's only been sacked 4 times. The Birds broke the ‘Skins jinx in the season opener. I look for the home team to make it a season sweep.,In Week 1 the Eagles sacked Cousins 4 times

The Redskins are playing better now than they were when the Eagles defeated them in Week 1. The offense is more balanced and they have found an explosive weapon at running back in Thompson, who is averaging almost 19 yards per reception. The defense is not making as many mental mistakes but it will miss top draft pick Allen, who broke his foot last week.

the formula for beating the Redskins is the same as it was a month ago and that is getting pressure on Cousins. The Redskins quarterback is having a good year - his 106.4 passer rating trails only Alex Smith and Tom Brady - but if the Eagles can harass Cousins as effectively as they did in the opener they will complete the season sweep of the Redskins. Authentic Sammie Coates Jersey,I think they will.,Still

so this is a shorthanded group.,Everything points to the Eagles here. They're a hot team, well rested, among other injuries, the offense is clicking and the quarterback is absolutely feeling it. ,Womens Joe Montana Jersey,Washington will be without Norman and possibly Breeland at cornerback as well

and the capacity Lincoln Financial Field crowd is going to be extra lathered up for a Monday night.,Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey,The only concerns are it's a divisional matchup, which tend to be close games,Authentic Senquez Golson Jersey, it's clear which is the healthier and more talented squad. Oh yeah, and whether the extra few days off knocks the Eagles out of a rhythm. Otherwise

and both of Washington's starting cornerbacks (Norman and Breeland) are banged up.,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey,The Eagles are getting healthier and the Redskins are not. First-round defensive lineman Allen is out for the season

Add in the fact that the Redskins haven't yet been able to get Terrelle Pryor or Jordan Reed going and this just looks like an Eagles win, which would give them a commanding lead in the NFC East and go a long way toward helping them secure a playoff bye. Yep, I'm already going there.

Alshon Jeffery finds pay dirt and the Eagles improve to 6-1.,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey,Zach Ertz dominates the 'Skins again

how can we pick the Eagles to lose?,After an impressive victory over the Panthers

I'm not going to predict it. Especially when they're well rested and playing at home against a team they've already beaten this season.,Which doesn't mean they won't. Every team throws in a clunker now and then. But until this team does

The Eagles are favored by 4.5 with an over/under of 48.5. Seems about right. A late Jake Elliott field goal covers the spread but isn't enough for the over.

From the sound of it,Womens NaVorro Bowman Jersey, it’s sort of like a play-calling think tank. It was in that room, during one of those meetings earlier this season, where the play that led to Corey Clement’s 9-yard touchdown catch was hatched.

a play that he pitched to head coach Doug Pederson and offensive coordinator Frank Reich.,It was a play that quarterback Carson Wentz had remembered from his time at North Dakota State

” said Wentz when he met with large group of reporters during his Thursday press conference.,Sometimes it’s tough, sometimes you have to find it, then kind of run it practice then convince them on it, you have to call NDSU to get the old film out so I can show them what’s kind of going on

“It’s cool to have that relationship, it’s been effective for us. I love that relationship that we can just bring up those ideas.”, that dynamic with Coach Reich, with Coach Pederson, so yeah, that they respect my opinion and when I bring them things like that, it’s definitely a great play. Obviously

The play was undoubtedly one Reich won’t forget for a while, and not because it gave the Birds a two-touchdown cushion against the Washington Redskins in what would eventually become a 34-24 win on Monday night, but because of how it happened. Wentz was almost sacked before throwing a sidearm ball to Clement, Womens Bud Dupree Jersey,who made a terrific catch and nifty toe tap to get both feet in bounds.

signing Don Cherry back to the roster. ,The Philadelphia Eagles filled their final practice squad spot

Cherry will resume the third-team linebacker duties behind Joe Walker and Najee Goode. ,Cherry spent the majority of 2016 on the Eagles practice squad as the third-team linebacker behind Jordan Hicks and Stephen Tulloch. With Hicks out for the season due to a ruptured Achilles tendon

Listed at 6-1, 240 pounds,Authentic NaVorro Bowman Jersey, Cherry played in 46 games at Villanova, earning 14 sacks and 46.5 tackles for loss in his college career with the Wildcats. He was an undrafted free agent in 2016 before signing with the Eagles two days before training camp began.

including one forced fumble. ,Cherry was released by the Eagles on 53-man roster cutdown day in September. He was third on the Eagles with 11 tackles this preseason

The Eagles also placed Jason Peters on injured reserve after signing Taylor Hart earlier Wednesday.

WATCH: Penguins' Phil Kessel gets spooked by teammate's Halloween mask

With the Pittsburgh Penguins in Minnesota for a Saturday night showdown with the Wild, waiting to scare Kessel outside his teammate's hotel room and,adidas Jake Guentzel jersey, of course, Reaves took the liberty of dressing like something out of a Halloween circus,Authentic Brent Burns jersey, capturing it all on video.

a video series Reaves started while playing for the St. Louis Blues, the prank had Kessel startled like no other -- and Reaves telling his fellow Penguin to "check your shorts,Deemed the first Pittsburgh edition of 7five Cam,Authentic Vladimir Tarasenko jersey, son."

Minn. (AP) Best known as a defensive-minded center,ST. PAUL, Mikko Koivu came up big at the other end Saturday night for the Minnesota Wild.

The Wild captain scored midway through the third period to lift Minnesota over the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1.

winless in their first four one-goal games this season,Daniel Winnik also scored and Devan Dubnyk made 29 saves. The Wild, have won three of four overall.

"I think we're starting to show the way we need to play to win hockey games," Koivu said. "There were some parts of that early on and we just couldn't keep it for 60 minutes."

The Wild have allowed eight goals in their past four games.

especially defensively, that's something you need to do in this league,"We trust that if we're playing the way we're supposed to play," Koivu said.

It starts with Koivu, a finalist last season for the Frank J. Selke Trophy awarded as the league's top defensive forward.

Jason Zucker and Mikael Granlund against other team's top players,Coach Bruce Boudreau likes to put the line of Koivu, many that are more well-known for their offensive prowess.

"You know (Koivu) takes challenges," Boudreau said. "He was against (Sidney) Crosby all night long and I thought he did a tremendous job. You know last game he was against (Islanders captain John) Tavares all night long. It gets him going when we challenge him with things like this. He took it as a challenge and he went out and did a great job at it."

The line of Crosby, Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary had just five shots on goal. The trio has 13 goals this season.

"They've got some of the best offensive guys in the league and I thought we did a good job shutting them down," Winnik said.

Minnesota blocked 18 shots.

Evgeni Malkin scored for Pittsburgh, which is starting a five-game trip that includes a swing through Western Canada.

yet won two of those,The Penguins have scored just six goals in four games, both 2-1 in overtime.

" defenseman Kris Letang said. "That's the big key right now. I think we play one good period, kind of sit back. When we need a goal we start going. We had tons of chances at the end again,Authentic Sidney Crosby jersey,"We have to find a way to play our game for 60 minutes, we just can't score."

On the winning goal, Kyle Quincey kept the puck in at the left point and zipped a pass across to Mike Reilly at the right wall. His wrist shot from the circle was deflected by Koivu between the pads of Matt Murray at 9:03.

Murray lost for the first time in regulation this season,Authentic Sidney Crosby jersey, having won seven straight starts since an overtime loss on opening night. He had 27 saves.

Coach Mike Sullivan hasn't decided if Murray will play Sunday in Winnipeg or if Casey Desmith will play in his first NHL game.

Malkin's slapshot from the right circle deflected off Luke Kunin and Quincey for a power-play goal midway through the first, but Winnik deked Murray to score on a rebound less than two minutes later and tie it 1-1.

which entered with the league's fifth-best power play at 27.3 percent,Authentic Jake Guentzel jersey,Pittsburgh, has scored a power-play goal in all seven road games this season and nine of 12 games overall.
