LeSean McCoy’s former backup has disappointed this fall.

The trade did seem to work out ok for the Patriots as they ended up winning another Super Bowl without Jones last year, after winning one with him in the 2014 season. It has also gone pretty damn great for Jones.

Just past the midway point in his second season with the team and after a strong game on Sunday, Jones is now tied for the league lead in sacks with 12, and Jones broke the fucking bank this past spring with a new contract from the Cardinals. I’d say this is one occasion where there weren’t any losers in the trade.

But since we are talking about Jones propensity for sacking the quarterback, let’s look at how he got two Sunday against the Jaguars, allowing him to jump into Jamison Crowder Authentic Jersey a tie for the league lead in sacks.

Game Womens Reggie White Jersey With 3:50 left in the second quarter, the Jags faced a third-and-3 from the 50-yard line. Jones was lined up as the right defensive end with his hand on the ground outside of Jacksonville rookie left tackle Cam Robinson.

Cavs look to start new streak after 13-game run ends in loss to Pacers

Posted on by

The next challenge for the Cavs, outside of their opponents, will be hoping they don’t suffer subtraction by addition and lose their rhythm as Isaiah Thomas, Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert and Derrick Rose get healthy.

Saints penalties were the Falcons’ best offense 鈥?The Falcons gained nine first downs courtesy of Saints penalties, including a questionable roughing the passer call on Sheldon Rankins that extended Atlanta’s first touchdown drive. While engaged with a Falcons offensive lineman, Rankins fell into Ryan as he threw the ball and both landed on the turf. It was incidental contact, at best, but a flag was thrown. Instead of punting after Ryan’s pass on third-and-11 was incomplete, the drive continued and the Falcons capitalized with a touchdown.

There were some legitimate Saints penalties, but also a few ticky-tack calls as NFL officials continue to act like they think fans come to see them toss yellow flags. In total, the Saints were flagged 11 times for 87 yards while the Falcons were called for four penalties for 35 yards.

Without saying we got robbed, without saying we’re the better team, they have to come to us in two weeks, Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan said following the game.

Game Mens Josh Bynes Jersey It’s unclear, though, how the Yankees will strategize position-wise between Stanton, Judge, Brett Gardner, Aaron Hicks, Clint Frazier and Jacoby Ellsbury in their outfield and at DH. Stanton and Judge have played almost exclusively right field as pros, and Stanton’s defensive metrics (10 defensive runs saved, 0.4 defensive wins above replacement) were slightly better than Judge’s (9 DRS, 0.3 dWAR) last season, but the team could go with some sort of rotation between the corner outfield and DH spots, keeping Stanton in the field a good amount.

This is expected to be the Packers’ last game without Aaron Rodgers, and besides getting Javorius Allen Womens Jersey through his absence on a high note and staying in playoff contention, avoiding being the one against the Browns gives the Packers all the incentive they need.

It still doesn’t answer why Ohtani chose the Angels, but maybe it hints at it.

Posted on by

The Angels didn’t obviously have a lot to attract Ohtani. They’re not the World Series favorites, and it’s not entirely clear they’re even a very good team, in the short term. They aren’t a team with a particularly rich history or international reputation, or a team that will max-out his fame and marketability.
Men's Reebok Washington Capitals #2 Matt Niskanen Premier Red Third NHL Jersey
Limited Kids Doug Gilmour Jersey The Angels seem eager to use him as a two-way player, but it’s sort of an awkward fit, with a prohibitively stuffed outfield and an extremely highly paid and injury-prone DH who will now have to survive first base. And their manager is one of the strongest — some have said stubborn — leaders in the game, which means Ohtani’s leverage to dictate his role is probably weaker now than it would have been in any other organization. (For now, that’s not a problem, because Mike Scioscia seems to be in agreement. But … )

It’s unclear whether James can keep up that performance. His efficient scoring thus far (James’ .658 true shooting percentage would be the best of his career, and the second-best on record behind Stephen Curry’s 2015-16 MVP season among players who used at least 30 percent of their team’s Authentic Jrue Holiday Jersey plays, according to Basketball-Reference.com) has benefited immensely from career-best 41.7 percent 3-point shooting. Given James has shot better than 38 percent from downtown only once in his career, it’s unlikely he’ll continue to be so accurate from 3-point range.

Celtics big man Al Horford, who has stretched his game beyond the 3-point arc in recent years, thinks it showed maturity for Tatum to embrace that change in his own game.

Kids Justin Abdelkader Jersey He likes to play [in the midrange]. To sacrifice for the team in order to give us our best chance to play the right way and win, he had to make some adjustments, Horford said. And he’s done it.

The levity Marrone’s passion for bologna evoked was sorely lacking during Jaguars training camp, and understandably so.

Posted on by

Since then, there have been endless media debates about why the NFL’s TV audiences are shrinking. But Kaepernick has inspired several fan boycotts on social media.

The high hopes Fox had for a World Cup advertising home run, meanwhile, vanished when the U.S. men’s national team unexpectedly lost to Trinidad and Tobago in October. It will be the first time since 1986 the U.S. will be excluded from the world’s biggest sporting event.

Quenton Nelson, OG, Notre Dame — The 6-5, 330-pound senior has been solid all season and is in the same mold as former Irish standout Zack Martin, who was a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Nelson helped the Irish rush for 154 yards in the 38-20 loss to Stanford. Fourth-quarter turnovers did in the Irish, and definitely not the play at left guard.

Given what Bryant, Williams, Beasley and Witten look like as a group, Prescott didn’t get enough credit for making it work with them. He’s trying to make plays that aren’t available, knowing that if a possession goes without a points, it might be pointless.

The Cowboys gave themselves and Prescott little margin for error in 2017, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that unforeseen further setbacks have doomed them.

Marrone and new football czar Tom Coughlin were inheriting a team coming off six straight seasons with double-digit losses. As the team’s assistant head coach/offensive line coach the previous two years, Marrone saw first-hand a ship that had gotten too loose under previous head coach Gus Bradley.

The environment soon changed with Jaguars players quickly learning they would be held far more accountable than in the past. Jackson described the Marrone-Coughlin combination as “no-nonsense” and credited them for adding a “grit factor” that was lacking.

St. Louis made it three goals on three consecutive shots when Upshall got loose on a breakaway after a turnover by defenseman Niklas Kronwall and slipped the puck between Howard’s pads to make it 3-0 at 6:17 of the second period.

Jay Bouwmeester’s shot deflected off the stick of defenseman Mike Green and over Howard’s glove at 16:26 of the second period for the Blues’ fourth goal on five shots.

Petr Mrazek replaced Howard in the Detroit goal to start the third period.

It’s hard enough to get (a shutout), and when you’re so close, obviously, it’s tough, Bernier said. But at the same time, we got a big two points and that’s what matters.

The Panthers tied the score during a third-period power play at the 10:11 mark. Huberdeau went down after being cross-checked by Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall, but as he lay on the ice, Huberdeau slipped a pass back across the front of the net to Trocheck, whose quick shot banked into the Detroit net off the outstretched glove of Howard.

I really didn’t have anything going on tonight Stan Musial Jersey — I felt like I was kind of floating around, Trocheck said. But Hubs gave me such a great pass that I pretty much had to score.

Getzlaf had been out since getting hit in the face by a puck Oct. 29 in Raleigh. The Ducks have been without Ryan Kesler, their other top center, all season long.

Sam Houston State had a 24-10 halftime lead, answering Kennesaw State junior Darnell Holland’s 13-yard touchdown run less than four minutes into the game with 24 unanswered points over four straight possessions. Included were Briscoe touchdown passes to Nathan Stewart on a 61-yard bomb and Louis on a 16-yard screen pass. The second one was the 100th in the last two seasons for Briscoe, the 2016 STATS FCS Walter Payton Award winner.

You saw two of the best teams in the country going after it, Keeler said.

I’m going to embrace the elephant in the room. (The game is) going to be fireworks, Tomlin told NBC’s Tony Dungy. And it’s probably going to be Part 1. That’s going to be a big game.

But probably, if we’re both doing what we’re supposed to, the second one is really going to be a big game. Then what happens in the first is going to set up the second one, which is going to determine the location of the second one.

He stayed in the game for the remainder of the drive, which he capped with a fourth-down touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery that gave the Eagles the lead.

Christian McCaffrey injury update: Panthers RB likely to play Sunday vs. Saints

Posted on by

Christian McCaffrey won’t let his injury keep him out of Carolina’s toughest test this season.

The Panthers (8-3) will seek redemption for their Week 3 loss to New Orleans when they battle the Saints (8-3) for NFC South supremacy at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday.

According to the FBI timeline, Adidas and Jurich were nailing down the sponsorship agreement while company representatives were allegedly working to bring 6-foot-7 small forward Brian Bowen to the university. Whether those two deals — one announced at a news conference, the other negotiated illicitly in the presence of an undercover agent — were somehow related is one of the major unanswered questions of the spiraling scandal.

Will he get the Eagles to the Super Bowl? We’ll have to wait and see.

A number of current and former NFL Network employees, including Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, have been suspended from their duties pending an investigation into disturbing sexual harassment allegations by a former employee.

Faulk, Heath Evans, Ike Taylor, Donovan McNabb, and former executive producer at NFL Network Eric Weinberger are among those accused, in a complaint obtained by Bloomberg. Weinberger is now the president of Bill Simmons’ media group.

Ex-NFL Network wardrobe stylist Jami Cantor, who filed a wrongful termination suit in October, alleges in an amended complaint that Faulk would ask her “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life. The suit also claims Faulk touched Cantor’s breasts and groped her.

Weinberger allegedly sent “several nude pictures of himself and sexually explicit texts” to Cantor. He also allegedly told her to touch his crotch and that she was “put on earth to pleasure me.”chargers_006

But Colin Kaepernick and the players who have followed his example have given the NFL what it has always wanted, not to mention its fans something on which they all can agree, whatever their politics.

Yup, that’s a tipped Mitchell Trubisky interception followed by an Eagles fumble. It’s nice to reciprocate with a gift when you’re given one. Both teams did their best to cope with it all on Twitter.

To complicate matters further, Gabby Williams did not play a minute in the second half due to an ongoing struggle with migraines. So trailing in the fourth quarter and in need of some much needed energy, the Huskies found a boost from Stevens, who netted 10 of her 17 points in the fourth period.

“We didn’t really have a great answer to her tonight,” McGraw said. “We tried to front, and they threw it over us. We tried to play behind and she shot over us.”

NFL kickers actually make more field goals after getting iced

Posted on by

Icing the kicker doesn’t work.
Majestic Jose Bautista Authentic Men's
As far as icing the kicker, I had two timeouts and I was going to, you know, leave with those in my pocket, Joseph said in the postgame press conference. Ice the kicker, see how he reacted.

If a coach has a timeout in the final seconds and hopes the kicker will miss, they can’t seem to help themselves from giving the old icing strategy a shot. But kickers seem to appreciate the extra time to prepare.

Icing Boswell on Sunday night didn’t work for the Packers, and it’s really no surprise given the history of the strategy. Is it going to stop happening, though? Probably not.

The Cardinals drafted Larry Fitzgerald with the third overall pick in 2004. Now, 13 years later, Fitzgerald has signed a one-year contract extension. The team announced the extension on Friday.

So if Fitzgerald plays next year, he’ll be with the Cardinals. But that’s still up in the air.

The $11 million deal keeps Fitzgerald under contract with the Cardinals through the 2018 season. Dre Kirkpatrick Womens Jersey It was also negotiated by the receiver himself.

Fitzgerald considered retirement after the 2016 season, and who could blame him? Arizona hoped to improve on a 2015 season in which it finished 13-3 and made it to the NFC Championship. It didn’t. The Cardinals went 7-8-1 and missed the playoffs.
