Seahawks could move Jimmy Graham for cap purposes

Posted on by

Graham is averaging a career-low 9.6 yards per catch through six games this season. The 30-year-old has 24 receptions for 230 yards and two touchdowns. Russell Wilson has targeted the tight end more of late, especially in the red zone, but results have produced inconsistent results.

The Seahawks have searched high and low to salvage their debilitating left tackle situation. Seattle has engaged in talks about acquiring Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown — the Texans and Seahawks square off Sunday in Seattle. The Keanu Neal Youth jersey club brought in free-agent Branden Albert for a visit. Bills tackle Cordy Glenn is also a trade option.

The drive culminated in a Ka鈥檌mi Fairbairn field goal. It gave the Texans a 24-21 lead over the Seahawks in a close game where every point is going to matter.

Not only is the soreness an issue enough to shut him down, but this is the week he would have been eligible to come off the PUP list. The Colts chose to not put him on that list just before Week 1, which tells you they expected him back before now. And given the optimism that he鈥檇 be ready for the opener back in camp, this makes it twice.

Ravens lose Flacco, beat Dolphins 40-0 behind defense

Posted on by

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was dazed and bleeding as he was helped off the field.

Since the start of last season, Winston leads the NFL in touchdown passes against the blitz. … Tyrod Taylor certainly does not have the most talented receiving corps around, but that should be OK against a Raiders squad that is the only team in the NFL without an interception on defense, that has allowed 10 passing TDs and a 68.9 percent completion rate, fourth highest in the league. … Those going streaming this week should consider Andy Dalton, who has multiple touchdown passes in three of four games under Bill Lazor and gets a struggling Indy team that is allowing the second-most passing yards a game and sixth-most points to opposing quarterbacks during the same time frame (since Week 3). … If you’re still searching after Dalton, Case Keenum gets Cleveland, potentially Stefon Diggs back and the chance to impress London. You could do worse and probably have.

The Browns said Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft, didn’t feel well upon arrival at the team’s facility Tuesday and was immediately placed into the protocol.

Garrett has four sacks in his first three games this season. He missed the Browns’ first four games with an ankle injury.

The Browns have a bye next week, giving him extra time to recover.

Murdoch said ratings are down because there are too many football games on TV.

Speaking at the Paley International Council Summit in New York, Murdoch said that there is an “overproliferation” of games, particularly as the league expanded Thursday Night Football, and that the ratings are “soft.”49ers_220_77bc458c1668dc31-150x150

Report: Patriots LB Dont’a Hightower (shoulder) out vs. Chargers

Authentic Womens Ryan Mundy Jersey
Terrelle Pryor Sr. was benched for Josh Doctson during Monday night’s game in Philadelphia. Doctson played a career-high 54 snaps and caught Grant Fuhr Womens Jersey three of five targets for 39 yards in the game. Pryor was limited to one snap in the first half, but ended up on the field for 30 snaps with the Redskins in comeback mode throughout the second half. He caught two of four targets for 14 yards. Jamison Crowder (58 snaps) and Ryan Grant (26) were also heavily involved.

Despite Doctson’s underwhelming stat line, he’s a first-round pick in his second season and has now been promoted into an every-down role in an offense that has found the end zone three times during four of its past five outings. Doctson has the pedigree and opportunity you want in players on your roster and it’s conceivable that he’ll end up in the WR3 mix (if not more) in the second half. At the very minimum, make sure you prioritize adding Doctson on waivers this week.

The ruling by appeals officer James Thrash means Lynch will not play Sunday against the Bills in Buffalo, where he spent the first 3? seasons of his NFL career.
Authentic Womens Kai Forbath Jersey
During the Raiders’ Week 7 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, Lynch ran off the sideline and into a scrum after cornerback Marcus Peters hit Oakland quarterback Derek Carr late, drawing a flag for a personal foul. Several Raiders offensive linemen went after Peters, an Oakland native and close friend of Lynch’s. Lynch bumped line judge Julian Mapp in the chest and then grabbed the official by the jersey before letting go and tending to Peters.

Lynch had argued during Monday’s appeal hearing that nine other players, including Aaron Donald and Taylor Lewan last season, have made contact with an official and none have been suspended, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Like Winston, if Brady doesn’t do well, we could get something that’s still enjoyable…

Posted on by

Colin Kaepernick’s goal has always been, and remains, to simply be treated fairly by the league he performed at the highest level for and to return to the football playing field, the statement continued.

The NFLPA responded with a statement later Sunday offering Kaepernick its support and reiterating its readiness to assist him, as we do all players.

Even the attempt to smother the issue with a weak compromise that like will still leave the right inflamed when players are still talking about racism and injustice.

You can Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey be sure that the data revealed by the New York Times hasn’t gone unnoticed in the league office. The NFL obsesses over any threat, real or perceived, to its bottom line.

Brady’s leading the league in yards with 1,399, and touchdowns with 10. He’s still out here cooking as a 40-year-old, and even though he doesn’t have a defense behind him right now, the Patriots are always going to be considered contenders as long as Tommy is chuckin’ it.

We haven’t heard from Doug Martin in a minute, after he was suspended four games for violating the league’s drug policy.
A.J. Bouye Limited Jersey
Martin hasn’t been through an actual practice in a month, per ESPN’s Jenna Laine, so you probably shouldn’t expect him to have any kind of breakout performance. But if it means we get to hear the best nickname in the NFL 锟斤拷 Muscle Hamster 锟斤拷 then I’m here for it.

This year’s draft was awash in good running backs from the big colleges that even NFL fans recognize: Leonard Fournette from LSU, Christian McCaffrey from Stanford, Dalvin Cook from Florida State, etc.

NFL odds 2017, Week 5: Betting lines, trends, and analysis for the week’s top games

Posted on by

Authentic Mens Matt Moore Jersey The Los Angeles Rams are 6-18 straight up and 10-14 against the spread in their last 24 games against the Seahawks. The Rams have won three of the last four games in this head-to-head series, however, and are hoping to pick up another win over their division rivals on Sunday.

Los Angeles is a 2.5-point home favorite over Seattle at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. This marks the first time that the Rams have been a betting favorite against Seattle since back in 2011, when they lost 24-7 as a 3-point home favorite.

The Rams have been one of the biggest early surprises of the 2017 season with a 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS start to the year, and a win over Seattle would give Los Angeles an early commanding lead in the NFC West.

The 49ers have lacked consistency in the punt return game since Ted Ginn left, and it seems like a matter of time before Taylor busts one for a touchdown. In the passing game, he is showing confidence that receivers with significant experience lack. With Marquise Goodwin and Aldrick Robinson dealing with drops, Taylor is starting to emerge as the second wide receiver option behind Gar?on.

The title of best Seahawks newcomer realistically could only go to one of Griffin or Chris Carson, and while Carson has earned all of the accolades and it’s devastating to lose his services, Griffin is my choice because he’s been thrown into the unenviable role of The guy quarterbacks target because Richard Sherman is on the other side, and he’s handled it extremely well.

Poker, foosball and pole dancing. What do these things have in common?

Posted on by

Well, besides being reasonable activities for a night out in Atlantic City, officials who help prepare specific sports for Olympic recognition apparently think they could soon take their place alongside running, gymnastics and ski jumping in the world’s most prestigious athletic competition.

Monday night’s total is set at 40 points. The UNDER is 8-3 in the last 11 games between these two rivals, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.

The home team is 9-1 SU and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 games between Chicago and Minnesota, with each of the last three games in this series being decided by 10 points or more. Even if Trubisky doesn’t excel right out of the gate, he should be able to perform at a level at or above what Glennon has with the Bears this season.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott acknowledged the appeals process has been “a little tiring,” but he is not ready to end his fight with the NFL over a six-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy.

“When you get accused of something of that magnitude, you kind of get labeled as an abuser, and that’s not me,” Elliott said. “That’s not how I want to be seen. That’s not what I want to represent to my family. So I mean it’s just important for me to fight.”

Although Elliott was not charged by Columbus, Ohio, authorities, the NFL said it had “persuasive” evidence that he committed domestic violence against a former girlfriend on multiple occasions in the summer of 2016.sabres_010

Vote: Will the Packers still be a threat without Aaron Rodgers?

Posted on by

Elite Jeremy Lane Jersey Aaron Rodgers’ injury not only takes another star off the field in the NFL but also could potentially tilt the balance of power in the NFC.

The Green Bay Packers are 4-2 after their loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, and Rodgers (broken collarbone) is possibly done for the season. So the NFC North is once again up for grabs.
Elite Eli Apple Jersey
Decker’s role as a short-area target (9.1 average depth of target) significantly limits his fantasy upside, and he’s not getting enough work near the goal line, which helps explain why he’s yet to score a touchdown. Decker is a fringe flex option against the Browns in Week 7, but he may not have much fantasy value soon with Davis closing in on a return.

With just four carries on Arizona’s opening drive, the Cardinals’ new running back tallied 54 yards rushing and burst up the middle for a 27-yard touchdown.

The score was his first touchdown since Week 17 of the 2015 season after he missed most of 2016 due to injury.

By the second quarter, he already rushed for more yards than he had for the Saints:

Adrian Peterson has 84 rushing yards in the first half against TB

In four games with the Saints, Peterson managed just 81 yards rushing and was relegated to just a few touches per game in a backfield that also featured Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. It already looks like the Cardinals are a much better fit.

Eric Decker paced the Titans with nine targets, seven receptions and 88 yards during Monday’s victory over the Colts. Decker has now handled 20 percent of the team’s targets this season, though Corey Davis’ absence has been a big reason for that. The usage has allowed him 3.6 receptions per game, that but hasn’t translated to much yardage (37.7 per game).

Chiefs vs. Texans live stream: How to watch ‘Sunday Night Football’ online

Posted on by

The Houston Texans are coming off a reinvigorated two-game stretch with rookie QB Deshaun Watson at the helm. Putting up a franchise-record 57 points in last week’s win, they now play host to the league-leading, undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC (live stream it on NBCSports.com).

With a 57-yard field goal at the end of the half, the Jets took a 3-0 lead to the locker room. Thanks to the Cleveland defense, the Browns were still in striking distance despite the many blown chances to get points.

The Browns’ defense has been helped by the addition of Myles Garrett, who Seth Roberts Jersey made his NFL debut Sunday and sacked McCown on the first snap of his career and added a second sack late in the first half.

Hogan’s touchdown pass got things going for the Browns, so maybe the bad voodoo Brandon Mebane Jersey is finally gone.

After DeShone Kizer was benched at the beginning of the second half, Kevin Hogan took over and led the team down the field, highlighted by a beautiful touchdown catch by Njoku.

For the Chiefs, Alex Smith has exceeded expectations heading into his 13th year in the league and currently leads all NFL QBs with a 124.2 passer rating. In addition to the success of the passing game, Kansas City has found a way to not only replace Jamaal Charles — who it lost to Denver in free agency — but to improve on the team’s running game with rookie Kareem Hunt. For his part, Hunt is barreling toward some impressive franchise and league records and is currently leading the league in rushing yards (502) and scrimmage yards (659).

It’s open talks and that’s a good thing.

Ross said that the NFL’s policy on the national anthem did not come up. That policy states that the players should stand for the anthem, and some have suggested the league would seek to change that to must stand. The NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a memo to the teams last week that the NFL prefers for players to stand during The Star-Spangled Banner.

Earlier, outside of the hotel where the owners are meeting, two dozen supporters of Black Lives Matter New York held a rally backing NFL players for speaking out, particularly former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the anthem last year in protest of racial injustice in America. Demonstrations during the anthem increased when President Donald Trump called the players unpatriotic if they knelt during the anthem, with both players and league executives saying the meaning of the protests has been misconstrued by the president and his supporters. At a game earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium after several 49ers knelt during the anthem.

Obviously it’s a different perspective, he said. I think that’s the most important thing when it comes to these issues, perspective and respect everyone’s right regardless of how they feel. Whether it is peacefully protesting or speaking on these issues, I think it’s important to respect everyone.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also called the session constructive.

We heard what they had to say and they heard us, Ross said.
Ryan Anderson Womens Jersey
Sources familiar with the players’ thinking told ESPN’s Dan Graziano that they went into the meeting skeptical. The level of trust between owners and players has been low in recent years, as the sides have waged court battles over the personal conduct policy and the players have spurned the owners’ efforts to open negotiations on an extension to the collective bargaining agreement.

This is Golden State’s shot at real NBA immortality.

Posted on by

The Warriors will likely enter the playoffs having capped the most dominant four-year regular-season run ever. Barring health issues or some league-shattering trade, finishing with two titles in four tries would count as a crushing disappointment. Winning three in four puts you among the gods.

History suggests they will face adversity. Repeating is hard. Only four teams have ever even made four consecutive Finals. Two were completely spent by the fourth trip.

But given Golden State’s age and collective talent, their journey ahead doesn’t look as arduous. The title is theirs to lose.

Well, Emme nailed it with a soaring “land of the free” as Dave beamed and raised his arms in celebration. Then the right-handed Cole, who has baseball dreams of his own, went out to the mound and threw a perfect strike to his left-handed father/catcher. As for the game itself, the Dodgers staged a four-run rally in the ninth to beat the Diamondbacks 5-4 and take a 5? -game lead in the NL West. “It was a perfect day,” Roberts said afterward.

Watching the proceedings was Dave’s mother Eiko. “This season has been a real blessing for all of us, but especially for my mom,” Roberts says. “She says she doesn’t know what she’d do if it weren’t for the Dodgers.”

Eiko and Waymon Roberts met when he was stationed in Japan — Naha, Okinawa, to be precise. That’s where Dave was born in 1972. Their family of four, including Dave and his sister Melissa, went base to base — California, Hawaii, North Carolina, back to Japan — until they settled in San Diego when Dave was 12.
