The New England Patriots defense has been inconsistent this season but delivered a very good performance versus the Buffalo Bills last week. The Bills own arguably the worst offense in the NFL Womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey , yes, but the Patriots still did what was expected of them and basically shut down the team’s attack — an encouraging outing, especially considering that the unit will face one of its toughest challenges of the season tonight.The Green Bay Packers, after all, field an offense that is slowly hitting its groove. While the Packers still rank only 15th in the NFL in offensive scoring, they cannot be underestimated — mainly because of one man: future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers, arguably a top-three quarterback in the league right now. With him behind the wheel, Green Bay’s offense always is a threat to score. New England’s defense therefore needs to be ready to the challenge.To find out more about Green Bay’s offense, we spoke with Jason B. Hirschhorn, who covers the team as an editor for our sister site Acme Packing Co. Speaking to Jason about the group, it becomes clear that the group is slowly getting better and is nearing peak form. However, it also has had some issues so far this season — issues which the Patriots need to take advantage of should they arise again.“Unlike in past years, the Packers have struggled in the red zone,” Jason said about a Packers offense that is good inside the 10-yard line but inconsistent between the 10 and the 20. “They have only scored touchdowns on just over half of their red-zone trips, down nearly 10 percent from a 2017 season in which Aaron Rodgers only played in six games. That drop-off has most significantly affected the overall scoring output.”However, Jason also points out that the unit has improved recently: “That red-zone rate has reached 63.6 percent Youth Danny Shelton Jersey , almost identical to that of the Patriots. Meanwhile, the emergence of Aaron Jones as a lead back has helped Green Bay become one of the most efficient ground attacks in the league (No. 4 by DVOA). Now, with Rodgers’ left knee closer to full health, the offense looks more dangerous than at any time this season.”The ground game in particular is worth keeping an eye on tonight. While the Patriots have been good in this area as of late, they have not faced the same combination of explosive aerial attack and efficient ground game since their week six tilt against the Kansas City Chiefs. And just like the Chiefs, the Packers also have a running back — the aforementioned Jones — that has big play potential written all over him.“Jones has become one of the most dynamic players on the offense,” Jason said about the 2017 fifth-round draft selection. “Despite missing the first two weeks of the season, Jones has become the Packers’ leading rusher and averages over 6 yards per carry. With Ty Montgomery traded to Baltimore and Jamaal Williams transitioning to more of a niche role, Jones should see plenty of action Sunday in Foxboro.”The 24-year old is not the only youngster who could pose a problem for the Patriots tonight. “In the passing game, rookie wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling has slowly established himself as a viable deep threat,” Jason said. “Valdes-Scantling’s speed (4.37 seconds in the 40-yard dash) and size (6-foot-4 stature) make him a difficult player to cover vertically and difficult to corral in the open field.”While Green Bay’s offensive superstars — quarterback Aaron Rodgers, wide receiver Davante Adams, tight end Jimmy Graham — receive most of the headlines, the more unheralded guys like Jones and Valdes-Scantling could ultimately make the difference. After all, the Patriots like to take away teams’ primary weapons. As is often the case, the battle between the depth options and lesser-known players might be the deciding factor. The month of December has been a special time for the New England Patriots during the Bill Belichick and Tom Brady era.Since the pair arrived in 2000 Womens Adam Butler Jersey , the Patriots are 64-13 during the final month of the regular season. Brady has been the starter for all but six of those victories 鈥?four during his rookie season in 2000 and two in 2008 when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener.Still, the 41-year-old quarterback's 58 December wins are the most in NFL history. His .843 winning percentage is second-best among quarterbacks in the Super Bowl era. Roger Staubach (17-3, .850) is first.Patriots special teams captain Matt Slater is one of the few players left on New England's roster with enough tenure to appreciate that run and the emphasis Belichick puts on this portion of the season."As coach says, 'Football season starts after Thanksgiving,'" Slater said.Just for good measure, Brady is 75-18 in regular-season games played on or after Thanksgiving.Three of their final five games are at home, beginning with Sunday's matchup with Minnesota.But even after the Patriots (8-3) earned their latest post-Turkey Day win last week over the Jets , Slater said the message coming from Belichick and Brady is far from a state of being content."I don't think we've played our best football yet," Slater said. "I think it was a step in the right direction."That's not good news for a Vikings team that is in position to make the playoffs, but is also a few losses away from peering in from the outside.Minnesota (6-4-1) has lost four straight regular-season meetings with New England, though the teams haven't met since 2014. The Vikings have won twice at New England, but their last victory was in 2000 in Belichick's first year.Running back Dalvin Cook said the Vikings are trying to concentrate on themselves and not the Patriots' mystique ."We're going to get caught up in us playing good football, and that's what we've got to focus on," he said. "Everybody can go into the whole thing of 'New England this.' We respect Tom, we respect the Patriots, we respect everything they've got going. But it's more about us at this point Womens Jeremy Hill Jersey , about how we're playing football and about just the little things we're doing. We've got to go in and focus on those."Here are some things to watch for in Sunday's game:TOUGH ON TOM:Vikings coach Mike Zimmer's defenses have had some success in minimizing Brady's impact in some matchups against the five-time Super Bowl champion. Though Zimmer's teams have lost three of four games against the Patriots, with the Vikings in 2014, as the defensive coordinator for Cincinnati in 2010 and as the defensive coordinator for Dallas in 2003, the Bengals beat New England 13-6 in 2013 with Zimmer in charge of the defense.Over those four games, Brady has been intercepted only once, but his average against Zimmer's defenses is only 204 passing yards and one touchdown with a 56.3 percent completion rate.The game at New England for the Vikings is sandwiched between matchups with Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Seattle's Russell Wilson, so Zimmer, his staff and his players have had their hands full lately and will continue to into the next month."Like Belichick said about Rodgers," Zimmer said of Brady, "I'm glad he's not in our division."GETTING THE GROUND GAME GOING:The Vikings have the third-fewest rushing yards in the league this year, after finishing seventh last season. Though the success of their passing game and particular game situations have factored into them falling to 28th in the NFL in attempts after totaling the second-most rushes last year, they'll need an uptick down the stretch and in the playoffs, if they make it, to keep winning.Attacking the perimeter last week against the Packers was productive, with Cook and Stefon Diggs each taking jet sweep plays for 9 and 12 yards, respectively. There's another untapped source of rushing yardage that lies with quarterback Kirk Cousins Womens Phillip Dorsett Jersey , too.Though Cousins had just 17 yards on six attempts and has never rushed for more than 38 yards in an NFL game, he's had plenty of opportunities to bolt for a first down this year that he's passed up in favor of a throw after the pocket has collapsed."I can't miss those opportunities when they're there, and you also can't go looking for them when they're not there," Cousins said. "You just have to play and react instinctively, and when they present themselves be ready to attack."FAMILIAR FOE:Sunday will be a reunion of sorts for Patriots receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who spent the first four years of his career in Minnesota (2013-16) before being signed by the Raiders the following year.Patterson had a career-high four touchdown catches and was utilized out of the backfield as a rookie in 2013. But he developed a reputation as bad route-runner and barely got any time at receiver in his second and third seasons in Minnesota.He bounced back and had a career-best 52 catches during his final season in 2016."They're using him way better than we did," said Zimmer, who coached Patterson for three seasons beginning in 2014. "I think they use him in a number of different ways. I mean, it's good to see for him. I wish we would have used him a little bit better."AP Pro Football Writer Dave Campbell in Eagan, Minnesota, contributed to this report.

The Steelers had a chance to tie last Sunday’s game against the Raiders with a field goal at the end of regulation http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-trent-brown-jersey , but Chris Boswell slipped on his approach to the ball and the Raiders blocked the kick to seal a victory.It was the second missed field goal of the day for Boswell and he’s now 10-of-16 on field goals for the season. He’s also missed five extra points and that’s enough for the Steelers to consider a change despite the four-year extension that Boswell signed with the team in the offseason.Head coach Mike Tomlin said at his Tuesday press conference that the team acknowledges that Boswell has not performed up to par and that they are “willing to explore options” as they prepare for this week’s game against the Patriots.Tomlin said that sticking with Boswell will be one of those options and didn’t specify when they might be auditioning others, but it seems likely that we’ll get an idea of who’s in the mix at some point in the next couple of days. The New England Patriots will face plenty of familiar faces when the they play the Tennessee Titans later today. But while a lot of the focus has been placed on Mike Vrabel, Malcolm Butler and others ahead of the contest, the other players on the Titans’ roster cannot be ignored either as Patriots head coach Bill Belichick illustrates in the latest episode of the Belestrator:Belichick and quarterback-turned-broadcaster Scott Zolak start the breakdown of the Titans by taking a look at wide receiver Corey Davis and his role in the team’ play-action game. “This guy is an excellent receiver — big, fast David Andrews Jersey ,” Belichick says about the former first-round draft pick. “We’re going to have to do a good job in the running game but if you get up there too fast, they just toss it over your head.”The player doing the tossing is quarterback Marcus Mariota. Belichick calls him a “very athletic quarterback, similar to some of the other players we have seen this year at the position” before focusing on his abilities as a ball carrier. “They run him on some keep plays, but also on the passing plays if the pass rush lanes aren’t there,” Belichick says. “He’s a running back Elandon Roberts Jersey , he’s not looking to slide.”“He’s a problem not only throwing the ball but also running it,” New England’s head coach notes about the four-year veteran, who is third on the Titans with 41 carries for 217 yards and a pair of touchdowns. But while Mariota is a highly athletic quarterback, the title of “best player on the Titans” arguably goes to defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, who Belichick and Zolak also analyze in the breakdown.“He’s playing great football for them Shaq Mason Jersey ,” Belichick says about the former third-round draft pick who is second on the team with 3.5 sacks and plays around three-fourths of Tennessee’s defensive snaps. “He’s very hard to block: he’s strong, he’s explosive, and he’s very quick.” After looking at a play of him stopping Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy behind the line of scrimmage, Belichick and Zolak analyze Casey as a pass rusher.The conclusion of the two plays is a simple one: “Casey, he’s one of the best defensive tackles in the league Cheap Stephen Gostkowski Jersey ,” Belichick says. “He’s a hard guy to handle.”

BOSTON (AP) — With cheers of "We want seven!" and "Next year http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-adam-butler-jersey , right here!" hundreds of thousands of jubilant fans jammed downtown Boston on Tuesday for a parade celebrating the New England Patriots‘ sixth Super Bowl title.A party atmosphere enveloped the city on the unseasonably mild day. Red, white and blue confetti rained down and music blared as fans packed along sidewalks hoping to catch a glimpse of quarterback Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick and the rest of the beloved team.It's a familiar feeling in Boston. The city's teams have now won twelve championships since 2001. Just four months ago, the city feted the Red Sox for their World Series victory over another Los Angeles team, the Dodgers. Boston resident Tom Collins was beaming as he took in the spectacle across from the city's historic Common, his ticket from this year's Super Bowl dangling from a lanyard around his neck.After celebrating in Atlanta, Collins said he and his wife drove nearly non-stop to get home for the parade."We had to be a part," he said as he smoked a cigar and held up a homemade Vince Lombardi trophy. "We had to bring the trophy back to Boston."Leigh Hickman, of Swanzey http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-trey-flowers-jersey , New Hampshire, drew cheers as he stalked the crowd wearing a rubber goat mask, a Tom Brady shirt and a sign that read: "We're Still Here.""I wanted to represent the G.O.A.T., the greatest player of all time," he said. "I'm the same age as him and I can't imagine doing any of the things he does. It's unbelievable."Fresh from Sunday's 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl title match held in Atlanta, team members and their families took a 2-mile (3-kilometer) swing through the city aboard Boston's iconic World War II-era amphibious "duck boats."Brady held his pigtailed daughter, Vivian, as they waved and grinned at the crowd. Other players, Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft took turns holding aloft the Lombardi Trophy.Star tight end Rob Gronkowski Cheap Julian Edelman Jersey , who has talked about retiring after this latest NFL title, whooped it up with his brothers and father. He and several other players removed their shirts and spent much of the parade bare-chested.Players also waved large signs that read, "We Got Everything" — a twist on the team's motivational hashtag, "Everything We Got," that had become a theme this season.Boston Police Sgt. John Boyle said the crowd of roughly 1.5 million was one of the largest the city has seen for a championship parade.The regional transit system reported record ridership as revelers basked in dazzling sunshine and temperatures that peaked above 60 degrees (15 degrees Celsius).Police made at least a dozen arrests and emergency medical officials transported 34 revelers to area hospitals. Five of those arrested were involved in a brawl that happened near the parade's end and at least seven of the arrests were juveniles, Boyle said.Fans seemed to mostly honor Mayor Marty Walsh's pleas not to throw anything at the team. Errant beer cans slightly damaged the Red Sox World Series trophy last year.Unlike in past years, there was no post-parade rally with speeches from Brady and others. Regardless, Patriots fans made it clear they weren't ready for the good times to end."Go for No. 7," Lauren Mills said when asked what she'd say to Brady. "He still has how many fingers left? You know Cheap Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey , four more rings to go." When the Patriots take the field next Sunday, Tom Brady will have an opportunity to do something he’s never done before. Score a touchdown in the first quarter of a Super Bowl. It may be hard to believe, but the Patriots haven’t scored a touchdown in the first quarter of any of the 8 of the Super Bowls in which Brady has played. Before last year, when Stephen Gostkowski hit a 26 yard FG, the Patriots had actually been shut out of all of the first quarters Brady had played in. They’ve been outscored in the Super Bowl 24-3 in the first quarter, and outscored 89-81 in the first half. Brady’s Patriots have been slow starters in all 8 previous Super Bowls, allowing the other team to score first 6 out of 8 games. This team has made their mark in the playoffs by taking early leads and controlling the pace of play. Being able to do that again next week could pay huge dividends for the Patriots against a tough Rams team. All 8 of Brady’s Super Bowls have been close, with last year the biggest margin of victory(or defeat). You could argue they could just as easily be 8-0 or 0-8. Getting off to a fast start could change that trend. We all want to watch an entertaining Super Bowl, but I’d be ok with a blowout too.Frankly Kyle Van Noy Jersey , after all the near heart attacks the Patriots have caused throughout the years, it would be pretty nice to be able to sit back and enjoy the game, without living and dying with each play. That’s probably just wishful thinking, but if the Patriots get off to a fast start, that’s one wish that just might come true.

The Los Angeles Chargers are taking on the Seattle Seahawks today and now we know who won’t be suiting up for the game. The inactives have been released:Most notably http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-isaac-rochell-jersey , star running back Melvin Gordon is good to go after sitting two weeks ago against the Tennessee Titans. We have seen the Chargers offense without Gordon and it is far less creative and far less effective. His presence today ought to be significant as they face Pete Carroll’s defense.Interestingly, on the defensive side Rayshawn Jenkins will not play. He is a healthy scratch as the Chargers have elected to go with six active cornerbacks instead of having access to the extra safety. It tells you something about what kind of game the Chargers are preparing for on defense. Winning this game will come down to stopping Russell Wilson and his receiving corps from being able to keep up with Philip Rivers and co. on the other side. The possibility of bringing in Colin Kaepernick for a tryout was "discussed" by the quarterback-needy Washington Redskins, according to coach Jay Gruden, who said Tuesday the team made a "strictly football" decision to look elsewhere."Isn't it obvious what the real reason is?" Kaepernick's lawyer, Mark Geragos http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-austin-ekeler-jersey , wrote in an email to The Associated Press.Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance, hasn't played since the 2016 season, when he began kneeling during the national anthem as a way to protest police brutality and social and racial injustice. He filed a grievance against the NFL last year, saying team owners colluded to keep him off rosters.Gruden told reporters during a conference call that there would have been "a greater possibility" of considering Kaepernick for a roster spot if the Redskins were in need of a QB in Week 1 rather than at this stage of the season."Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback and new system installed and taught in a couple of days of practice Joe Barksdale Jersey ," Gruden said. "So he's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go a different direction."Added Gruden: "You want to have somebody with a similar skillset to the quarterback you have. Not that Colin can't do some of the things that I'm talking about, but somebody with a little bit of familiarity."Washington quarterback Colt McCoy had surgery Tuesday after fracturing his right fibula in a 28-13 loss at the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night. McCoy had replaced Alex Smith as the starting quarterback after Smith broke his right leg in a game last month and was ruled out for the season.Gruden said McCoy would not go on injured reserve immediately because there is a slight chance he might be able to return to action by Week 17.Now the Redskins will turn to Mark Sanchez, who starts at QB next Sunday for the Redskins (6-6) against the visiting New York Giants (4-8).Against the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7 Cheap Dan Feeney Jersey , going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover."For me to go in and play was in an emergency situation and those things happen. Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan," Sanchez said. "Listen, I've seen just about everything in this league except for, I don't know, a Super Bowl game."He hasn't started a regular-season NFL game since going 0-2 in the 2015 season.Sanchez's career passer rating is 73.7 Trevor Williams Jersey , and he has more interceptions (87) than TD passes (86) since entering the league as a first-round draft pick of the New York Jets.Gruden said the Redskins would be bringing in a couple of unemployed quarterbacks for workouts later Tuesday and then would decide among them and those street free agents that tried out last month when Sanchez was signed. That group included Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates, EJ Manuel and Josh Johnson.Notes: Already missing two starting guards, the Redskins lost two more against Philadelphia. Jonathan Cooper tore a biceps tendon and needs season-ending surgery; Tony Bergstrom will miss at least two games with a high ankle sprain. ... LB Ryan Anderson will likely miss at least a week with a strained hamstring.Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at ://HowardFendrichs://apnews/NFL and s://AP_NFL Custom Denver Broncos Jerseys

11 takeaways from the Chargers 36-7 loss to the Saints The third preseason game for the Los Angeles Chargers Caleb Sturgis Jersey , also known as the annual “dress rehearsal,” has come and gone with the home team losing 36-7 to the New Orleans Saints. While the score certainly isn’t very pretty, I don’t think things are quite as bleak as a 29-point loss might otherwise suggest.The truth is, the Chargers starters played pretty well on both sides of the ball. The offense, in particular, put together two solid drives against a talented and well-coached New Orleans defense – even if one ended when Rivers failed to connect with Mike Williams on a fourth-and-goal jump ball. Meanwhile, the first team defense intercepted Drew Brees and limited the Saints to a touchdown and two field goals in three red zone trips.Let’s take a look at some of the things that stood out to me – both good and bad – in Saturday’s loss to the Saints:When in doubt, run left: Mike Pouncey, Dan Feeney, and Russell Okung look like a major strength for this offense. Austin Ekeler ran the ball six times for 50 yards during the first two drives, including four carries for 38 yards behind the left side of the line. Pouncey, Feeney, and Okung didn’t just control the line of scrimmage, they owned it, and Ken Whisenhunt wasn’t the least bit shy about leaning on them. This is going to be a fun group to watch during the regular season.Austin Ekeler – RB1?: With Melvin Gordon unavailable on Saturday, Austin Ekeler started the game and was the focal point of each of the Chargers’ first two drives. Ken Whisenhunt called Ekeler’s number nine times in the team’s first seventeen offensive plays and was rewarded with 63 total yards. While I’m half-kidding when I suggest Ekeler is RB1, his vision, burst, elusiveness Cheap Melvin Ingram Jersey , and hands out of the backfield might have him ready to take on a much larger role this year. He looked fantastic.A glimpse of things to come?: The Chargers’ first drive may have revealed a new, more aggressive attitude on the part of head coach Anthony Lynn. Faced with a fourth-and-goal from the Saints four-yard line, Lynn eschewed a chip-shot field goal in favor of a jump ball for Mike Williams. Granted, Williams didn’t get open and the Chargers failed to convert, but it’s pretty telling that Lynn opted to go for it on fourth down instead of kicking the ball with a somewhat murky kicking competition taking place in camp. It seems like a big vote of confidence for Mike Williams in what has been a preseason of baby steps for the former #7 overall pick.Detrez is the man: There is little doubt at this point that Detrez Newsome is the favorite to win the third-string running back job. While his stats on Saturday certainly weren’t eye-popping, he finished with 14 touches for 44 yards and an eight-yard touchdown run. Newsome strikes me as the ideal complement to Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler and, for the first time in years, the Chargers appear to have a dynamic and versatile three-man backfield. Detrez earned it.JJ just misses: The fact that Travis Benjamin and Desmond King served as the primary return men on Saturday probably suggests Jones won’t make the roster. JJ simply isn’t an NFL wide receiver and, even with his potential as a return specialist, I the coaches likely can’t justify keeping seven receivers if the seventh man can’t at least break camp as the primary return specialist. That said, it wouldn’t surprise me if the team tries to protect him by including him on the initial 53-man roster with the intention of transferring him to the practice squad after the rest of the league has announced their practice squads. He could serve as a “placeholder” for an Antonio Gates signing, assuming the team ultimately brings him in.It’s Gates time: The Chargers played a third straight game in which their tight ends struggled to contribute as targets in the passing game. Sean Culkin caught his lone target for a seven-yard gain, but the group was otherwise invisible in the passing game. While I don’t think adding Antonio Gates changes much for this position group in terms of consistent playmaking ability, I do think his signing is probably inevitable. With that in mind, let’s get it done, already, so we can stop talking about it.Let Pooh Bear eat: Derwin James started his first game as a Charger and celebrated with an interception, a couple big hits, and a couple third down stops. Derwin showed a bit of everything you look for in a free safety when he intercepted Drew Brees on the third play of the game Cheap Jahleel Addae Jersey , including anticipation, range and electric ball skills. He’s arguably the best athlete on the team and possesses the best natural ball skills of any safety on the roster. He’s also the only safety on the roster capable of making that play. Stick James back there and good things will happen.White-out at WILL:Derwin James wasn’t the only rookie to start his first game as a Charger, as fourth-round pick Kyzir White got the nod at weakside linebacker (WILL). While he didn’t make any splash plays, White looked really good in man coverage, made a couple stops in the run game, and didn’t miss any tackles. I think he needs to work on how he reacts to play-action (a little too aggressive) and he seemed to be thinking a little out there, but it wasn’t bad for a rookie who missed the second preseason game.Brown on the bubble?: Jatavis Brown looked lost against the Saints. After making consecutive run stops to start the third quarter, Brown promptly missed his next seven tackle attempts, including an embarrassing whiff on Taysom Hill at the goal line. His reads were inconsistent, his angles were extremely poor and he was routinely beat to the edge. He looked even worse than Dwight Lowery did against the 49ers last preseason – right before he got cut. While I’m not totally convinced he’ll get cut, I think next week could ultimately decide Jatavis’ fate.Mager is in: It’s becoming pretty apparent that Craig Mager has the fifth cornerback spot on lockdown. He started the game opposite Michael Davis on the boundary, then played well into the third quarter while rotating inside to the slot. Mager went a third straight game without being targeted and I thought he played with solid technique and was generally in good position. Outside of eating a nasty stiff arm from Michael Thomas in the second quarter, Craig didn’t do anything to make me think he’s going to relinquish his hold on what figures to be the fifth and final spot on the depth chart.Chargers eliminate the dirty laundry: I thought the team executed more efficiently in all three phases of the game against the Saints and, most importantly, they more or less eliminated the mental and physical errors that led to 28 penalties over the first two preseason games. Granted, some of that is the direct result of getting the starters extended snaps, but the team definitely played its cleanest preseason game to date. In addition to avoiding major injuries, that’s the best possible outcome from the third preseason game.Well, those are my notes from the Chargers third preseason game. Overall Cheap Denzel Perryman Jersey , I thought the starters played pretty well on offense and defense, the majority of the camp battles have come to their conclusion, and the Bolts cleaned up the stupid mistakes they made through the first two preseason games. All in all, it was a pretty successful dress rehearsal for the starters. Don’t even get me started on the backups. Man, oh man, I’m really not sure how to begin this article, or any article in the near future since I still find myself screaming and hollering over the last-second victory from this past Thursday.I mean, wow. Just wow. It actually happened.However, just like the Chargers, we as a fan base can hold onto this victory for a few days but will inevitably turn our attention to next Saturday;s bout with the Baltimore Ravens and that intimidating, top-five defense.The good news heading into this week is that Melvin Gordon should be good to go and will likely bring the offense back to its’ explosive former glory. On the other hand, Keenan Allen is sure to miss the rest of the regular season after suffering a hip-pointer injury in the first half against the Chiefs.(Enter all the “Here comes the injury bug” comments.)It’s obviously a tough trade off but, with the Chargers clinching a playoff spot with their last victory, they can afford to rest Allen for the next couple weeks. Which is really, really huge.SurgeWR Mike WilliamsWhat an absolutely spectacular day by the second-year receiver out of Clemson.In a game that saw the Chargers’ top receiver go down and finish the game without a single reception, the former seventh-overall pick did more than enough to justify his selection in the top-10 as he collected a trio of touchdowns, finding pay dirt through the air twice and once on the ground.His rushing touchdown was probably the most impressive of them all. On a nifty end around, Williams took a short inside toss from Rivers after they faked another toss left to Justin Jackson. Williams found some running room off the right side thanks to a nifty block by Virgil Green on Justin Houston and number 81 did the rest.On the night, Williams had a career-high 98 total yards from scrimmage and the aforementioned three touchdowns with the game-winning two-point conversion.If Allen really does miss time into the playoffs Tyrell Williams Jersey , Williams is going to have to maintain his level of play that he exhibited against the Chiefs or this offense is going to take a significant blow at he most important time of the season.QB Philip RiversIt’s hard to believe, because it’s what we are all used to, but it finally finally happened.On Thursday night, Old Man Rivers rid himself of the Kansas City monkeys that have made their home on his back over the last five years and led his team to a walk-off victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead, their first win in KC since the end of the 2013 season.At the end of the night, Rivers finished with a 26-of-38 of line that went for 313 yards and two touchdowns along with two interceptions. It was also the first time since 2013 that number 17 threw for multiple touchdowns while also eclipsing the 300-yard passing mark against the Chiefs.This is the type of play by Rivers that the team will be looking for as they rev up for the playoffs. He did throw a pair of interceptions against Thursday night but he found a way to make up for them down the stretch and still willed his team to a victory despite his shortcomings earlier in the game.That is the quarterback this team needs. That is the quarterback this team deserves.StaticS Jahleel AddaeHe dropped an interception that went through his hands and hit him in the facemask. I’m not sure how else to put this. He is bad and had been bad and will likely continue to be bad as long as he is allowed to be on the field.There is no speed. There are no ball-skills. There are no instincts. He has yet to make a single play this year that forces the fans to go “oh yeah, that’s why the Chargers signed him to an extension several years ago.”On the year, Addae is currently the #52 safety in the league according to Pro Football Focus.G Dan FeeneyFeeney, Feeney, Feeney....What a disappointing sophomore season it has been for last year’s third-round selection out of the University of Indiana. If you guys recall, Feeney was a two-time All-American during his career in Bloomington and was talked up as one of the top players at his position heading into the 2017 NFL Draft.But now, going into week 16 of the regular season, Feeney is currently the 72nd-graded offensive guard in the entire NFL. Do you want to know why that is extremely #bad?If there are two starting guards for each of the 32 NFL teams, then there are 64 starting guard spots in the NFL. According to PFF, there are eight non-starters that grade higher than the former-Hoosier.That is...no bueno.From whistle to whistle, number 66 had himself rough night going up against Chiefs’ defensive tackle Chris Jones, arguably the leagues biggest breakout player of the 2018 season. He collected 2.5 sacks while constantly applying pressure on Rivers, forcing more than one errant throw in the process. www.nflshopoutlet.com/cincinnati-bengals

Although C.J. Beathard knew he should slide Authentic Casey Hayward Jersey , the San Francisco 49ers desperately needed a first down in the fourth quarter of a two-point game.So Beathard kept running toward Casey Hayward, and the Los Angeles Chargers' Pro Bowl cornerback knocked the wind clean out of the quarterback with a devastating shoulder hit."Especially in a situation like that, on third down when you're inches away from converting, it could change the game if we get that first," Beathard said. "If I could do it again, I'd do the same thing."Beathard didn't get that first down. After he caught his breath, the Niners still dropped to 1-3 with a 29-27 loss Sunday.But after the first game of Beathard's second stint as San Francisco's accidental starting quarterback, his teammates and coaches were enthusiastically confident in his ability to fill in splendidly for Jimmy Garoppolo this season."He gave us a chance to win today Youth Melvin Ingram Jersey ," Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said. "He played very tough and made some big plays, especially in situations with guys going in and out. He handled adversity well, and a little chaos with some of the injuries."Beathard went 23 of 37 for 298 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against the Chargers, capably connecting on a series of big throws — none bigger than an 82-yard touchdown pass to tight end George Kittle late in the third quarter.He also showcased the resilience and toughness of a third-round draft pick trying to seize the chance he's been given by Garoppolo's season-ending knee injury ."C.J. has got more grit than anybody that I know," said Kittle, Beathard's college teammate at Iowa. "He's got a severe dad bod. He can run longer than anybody I've ever known, which is kind of crazy, and he can take any hit. So it's pretty cool. Don't know how he does it."The 49ers lost both of Beathard's starting offensive tackles to injuries at StubHub Center. Joe Staley didn't return http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-mebane-jersey , while Mike McGlinchey came back in less-than-ideal shape. The Chargers were credited with eight quarterback hits and one sack of Beathard, along with plenty of regular pressure, particularly in the second half.Beathard took it all and came back for more."Ain't no room for being sweet, (and) there ain't nothing sweet about C.J.," 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster said. "So that's why we have faith and we believe in C.J. It was really not surprising, but it was surprising because I could see it in his eyes every time he came on the sideline, like, 'Defense Tyrell Williams Jersey , let's go. We've got your back. We ride with y'all.' Just him saying that means a lot to me and the defense, because you know where his head is at."Beathard dropped to 1-5 as an NFL starter with this loss, but his teammates loved his moxie. Hayward's big hit sent Beathard to the sideline — once he could stand up again — but he returned for the 49ers' final two offensive series."I knew I was OK," Beathard said dismissively. "I just couldn't breathe. I got my air knocked out pretty bad, and I was able to come back eventually. I felt fine."If Beathard had actually got that first down, the 49ers would have had to give the next snap to Nick Mullens, who was promoted last week from the practice squad. Shanahan said the Niners will look at signing another backup quarterback this week.Los Angeles essentially ended the game by forcing Beathard's second interception with 2:31 to play.Derwin James' blitz sent the ball out of Beathard's hands, and it hit center Weston Richburg before the Bolts' Isaac Rochell grabbed it for an interception.Shanahan said he wished Beathard "would have saw that and got rid of it Authentic Keenan Allen Jersey ," but Beathard said he was trying to get the ball away before the Chargers' disruptive rookie safety got to him. It was another failed gamble, but the 49ers will accept it if Beathard continues to grow from these painful experiences."He is going to be a great quarterback in this league," Niners running back Matt Breida said. "He is a tough competitor, as you can see. He'll take the ball and run with it, take big hits, and get up and get back in the game. It's going to be hard to get C.J. out of the game." The Rams offense impressed in the first two weeks of the regular season and they outdid themselves in Week Three against the Chargers.Jared Goff threw for 354 yards, Todd Gurley ran for 105 and the team piled up 521 yards while beating the Chargers 35-23 in the NFL’s first Battle of Los Angeles since 1994. That moves the Rams to 3-0 ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Vikings, who will be coming to L.A. off the back of getting their teeth kicked in by the previously winless Bills.Goff and Gurley both had turnovers in the first half and it looked for a time like the game might develop into a shootout Youth Michael Schofield Jersey , but the Chargers opted to kick a field goal down 15 points in the fourth quarter and then failed to convert a fourth down after forcing the first Johnny Hekker punt of the game on the ensuing drive.That made the result academic, but all the feelings won’t be ecstatic in the locker room after the game. Cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib both left the win with injuries and any extended absences would leave the Rams vulnerable at a particularly important spot on their defense.Word on the severity of those injuries will come in time. Answers to the Rams offense may be harder to find for opposing teams in the weeks and months to come. NFL Outlet

Philip Rivers has many accomplishments www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com , but there is one trait that he has taken pride in over his 15-year career 鈥?durability.The Chargers' veteran signal caller will become the fourth quarterback in NFL history to make at least 200 consecutive regular-season starts when Los Angeles travels to Seattle."It's pretty cool. I mean, obviously the two Mannings (Peyton and Eli) and Favre have started over 200 in a row, and I just feel thankful," Rivers said. "I think there is a small element of toughness involved, but then again, shoot, lots of prayers for me from many people on Sundays and guys' protection that allow me to be out there each and every week, whether dealing with minor things or big things."Rivers' streak is even more impressive considering the physical and mental demands of the position as well as the constant QB turnover throughout the league. Since Rivers' first start on Sept. 11, 2006 New Orleans Saints T-Shirt , at Oakland:鈥?There have been 179 different starting quarterbacks, including San Francisco's Nick Mullens on Thursday night.鈥?Of that group, 78 have started for two or more teams and 12 have been with four or more. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been the most traveled with starts for six teams.鈥?While the Chargers have had only one starting QB, 18 teams have had 10 or more start under center and eight have had 13 or more with the Browns (18), Rams (16) and Vikings (16) leading the way.鈥?Rivers, who has a 111-98 record, has started against 91 quarterbacks and defeated 69, including Favre and both Mannings.Longevity, though New Orleans Saints Hats , is nothing new for Rivers, who started 51 consecutive games at North Carolina State."I think just being out there each and every week has always been important," he said. "Obviously, you want to be able to go out there and help. It's not just be out there. You want to play at a high level, and that's been up and down over 199, but being out there means something."NFL on CBS commentator Boomer Esiason said he thought it wasn't humanly possible to see a quarterback start 200 or more consecutive games, but that Rivers' leadership is what has stood out throughout his career.He also noted that Rivers' relationship with Drew Brees during his first two years with the Chargers, where both had a friendly rivalry, is something that rarely happens these days due to constant scrutiny and social media.While Brees has had great success with Sean Payton in New Orleans New Orleans Saints Hoodie , Rivers has had a tougher time. The Chargers have not been to the playoffs since 2013."With Philip's competitive personality and leadership he is what other quarterbacks should aspire to be," Esiason said. "He's an extension of the coaching staff when he is out on the field."Even at age 36, Rivers is off to one of the best starts of his career as the 5-2 Chargers have won four straight. He is third in the league with a 117.8 passer rating and is tied for third with 17 touchdown passes.He has excelled this season on deep passes along with throwing into tight windows. According to the league's Next Gen stats, Rivers leads the league at 9.2 yards per attempt and has a 124.1 rating when the receiver is separated by less than a yard from the defender.Rivers also has six touchdowns and no interceptions on deep passes (thrown in the air 20 yards or more). Seattle's defense has allowed only five completions on deep passes."Sometimes as an older player, your body won't let you do it. He's gifted. He hasn't faced that problem," Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said.If Rivers' streak continues, he would tie Peyton Manning (208) at the end of the season and Eli Manning (210) in Week 2 of next season. As for Favre's mark of 297, Rivers said that is too many games for him to have a chance."Favre was always a favorite of mine. Still is. I kind of wanted to have that mark, or at least push for it in college Customized New Orleans Saints Jerseys ," Rivers said. "I'm not going to get there. So y'all can do the math and figure out your projection of how many years I'm going to play, but I'm not going to get to 300."Rivers might also be the last to get into the 200 straight starts club for a while. Atlanta's Matt Ryan, who is in his 11th season, is second among active straight starts with 138 and Detroit's Matthew Stafford, who is in his 10th, has 119. Seattle's Russell Wilson, who has started every game since entering the league in 2012, is at 103 and wouldn't reach 200 until midway through the 2024 season.Saints vs. Falcons: Week 3 live game thread [Saints fans: Sign up for FanPulse, our weekly Saints survey]Week 3 has somewhat important things at stake www.authenticsneworleanssaints.com , as the New Orleans Saints (1-1) travel to take on the Atlanta Falcons (1-1) in an early NFC South showdown.

The New Orleans Saints wrap up their 2018 regular season this Sunday with a home game against an NFC South rival Womens DeMario Davis Jersey , the Carolina Panthers. The 13-2 Saints essentially have nothing to play for, having already clinched not only the division title, but home field advantage through the playoffs. The expectation is that even with a first round bye, coach Sean Payton will choose to sit many of his starters and top end players for an extra week of rest. That strategy will be especially important for players like left tackle Terron Armstead, who is nursing a pectoral injury, along with some other members of a banged up offensive line. However, there are a handful of Saints players who are on the verge of historical or meaningful achievements. Health and fresh legs are most important to New Orleans, but here are a few players who are on the verge of milestones that we might see in the lineup on Sunday, even if only for a short time. Drew Brees Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsBrees, one of the leading candidates to finally get the league M.V.P. award that he's been overlooked for his whole career, is about to shatter his own NFL single season record for completion percentage. Brees currently has 3,992 passing yards this season, just 8 yards shy of extending his own league record of consecutive 4,000 yard passing seasons to thirteen. Brees has missed just two starts during his New Orleans career, one in this exact sort of situation in 2009, and has never failed to break the 4,000 yard barrier in his 13 years as a Saint. It seems likely that he could at least start the game and play at least a drive to extend his impressive yardage streak. Michael Thomas Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesThomas leads the NFL with a single season team record 120 receptions, a seven catch lead over Philadelphia's Zach Ertz. Thomas already sits at the top of the team's record book in numerous categories in just his third professional season, and now has his sights set on another. Thomas' 1,376 receiving yards puts him just 24 short of the single season franchise record of 1,399 yards set by Joe Horn in 2004. As is the case with Brees http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/max-unger-jersey-authentic , it doesn't seem likely that a healthy Thomas will sit out this game completely, not when he's so close to a prestigious achievement. Alvin Kamara Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsKamara leads the Saints with 883 rushing yards, sitting 117 away from his first career 1,000 yard rushing season, a milestone that only 7 other backs in team history have accomplished. He also has 14 rushing scores, a single season franchise record, and 18 total offensive touchdowns, trailing the Rams Todd Gurley by 3 scores for the league lead in each category. Kamara's 18 offensive touchdowns are also tied for the single season franchise record with Dalton Hilliard, who set the mark during the 1989 season. Kamara has gotten 275 offensive touches this season, and has not looked quite as dynamic at times down the stretch. While much of that is due to the extreme amount of attention he receives from opposing defenses, having a fresh legged Kamara for the playoffs will be vital for offensive success. He may play a series or two, and perhaps get a goal line opportunity to move past Hilliard, but it's not likely that Kamara will see much playing time in this one. Mark Ingram Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY SportsIngram, who passed Deuce McAllister as the Saints all-time rushing touchdown leader with his 50th score on the ground last week, now sits on the cusp of another hallowed team mark. With 118 rushing yards, Ingram will pass McAllister's career franchise record of 6,096 rushing yards. Both players accumulated their rushing totals by their eighth seasons, but with Ingram facing unrestricted free agency at the end of the year, this may be his final opportunity to etch his name at the top of the New Orleans record book in this category. Having Ingram healthy for the playoffs is the team's top priority with him, but with Kamara unlikely to see many snaps, we could see Ingram get the carries to pass McAllister's record if he has some rushing success early in the game. Cameron Jordan Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty ImagesJordan leads the team with 12 sacks http://www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com/wil-lutz-jersey-authentic , the fourth time in his eight year career that he has double digit quarterback takedowns. Jordan is just one sack away from equaling his career high of 13 sacks, set last year. He has started 126 of a possible 127 games during his career, missing just one game during his rookie year. A healthy Jordan will probably get the start, with a chance to get his career high in sacks against a struggling Panthers line within the first couple of drives before he takes a seat with a number of other team stars. Teddy BridgewaterDerick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThe Saints acquired the 26-yr. old Bridgewater late this summer, surrendering a 2019 3rd round draft choice to fortify their backup quarterback spot. The former 2014 Vikings 1st round draft pick has appeared in a few games, throwing one pass in mop-up duty. Bridgewater has been dubbed as a possible replacement for Drew Brees whenever he decides to retire, but will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end. While life after Brees is not even close to a top priority for Payton and the Saints front office, they are still faced with a decision on Bridgewater this offseason. Even if Brees does get the start on Sunday, Bridgewater will almost certainly receive a good bit of playing time to showcase his ability. Whether it's an audition for a longterm contract with New Orleans, to bolster his value as a free agent, or perhaps even as a sign-and-trade candidate remains to be seen, but we should expect to see Teddy Bridgewater take the bulk of the Saints offensive snaps this Sunday. Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty ImagesThe Saints 13 wins this season is tied for the franchise record, equaling the total from the 2009 and 2011 squads. Coincidentally, both of those teams played the Carolina Panthers to end their regular season with little left to play for heading into the playoffs, as did Payton's 10-6 2006 team that had also had their postseason seeding secured. Brees, along with the majority of the starters, played just a series or two during the '06 finale, and many (including Brees) did not play at all in the final game of 2009. The Panthers, who are down to their 3rd string quarterback after shelving Cam Newton and losing Taylor Heinicke to injury, have lost 7 straight games after a 6-2 start. Payton and the Saints would surely love to notch a team record 14th victory against a bitter rival, but remember that Carolina is a rugged and physical team Youth Drew Brees Jersey , and Saints-Panthers matchups always take a physical toll on each side. With the exception of a few players, like Armstead, who have been a bit banged up and likely won't play at all, this will probably be treated like a preseason game in regards to playing time. Brees, Kamara, Thomas, Jordan, and a few other stars could still get the start, but will come out of the game after a series or two. That would mean that the outcome of this game, and a franchise record 14th win, will come down to "Teddy Time" and a number of the young New Orleans reserves as they try and showcase the depth this team as they head into the postseason.Saints Podcast: Marcus Davenport is Reggie White 2.0 The boys recap the Saints 36-7 win in Los Angeles over the Chargers.

In the 2016 NFL Draft Womens Tom Compton Jersey , the Minnesota Vikings made Dalvin Cook the centerpiece of that year’s class, taking him in the second round with the 41st overall selection. In the 28 games that the Vikings have played since then (counting postseason contests), Cook has been available for just seven of those games, owing to a knee injury that cost him much of his rookie season and a hamstring injury that has hampered him this year. However, that might be set to change on Sunday when the Vikings host the Detroit Lions at U.S. Bank Stadium.According to numerous sources on social media, Cook might be making his return to the field this week. If he does so, he will be playing a limited number of snaps.Of course, that was originally the plan for Cook leading up to the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals as well. Cook actually had some full participation practice in the week leading up to the Cardinals game, but after going through pregame warmups Womens Danielle Hunter Jersey , he was scratched once again. Unless I missed some reports, there wasn’t any consideration give to making him active in Week 7 or Week 8, either.Cook suffered his hamstring injury in overtime of the Week 2 tie against the Packers, and has not actually been on the field since the first half of the Week 4 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He was on a set snap count for that game, too, and did not play in the second half.In Cook’s absence, Latavius Murray has done a respectable job helping the Vikings establish a running game, but it would be nice to see Cook back out on the field and making an impact again.We’ll have to see how this shakes out. Personally, I’m not going to believe he’s playing until he’s actually out there standing next to Kirk Cousins in the Vikings’ backfield. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has played two games since returning from a torn ACL in Week Three Authentic Brett Jones Jersey , winning one and losing one. He definitely hasn’t lost a fan in offensive coordinator Mike Groh.“He looks great to me,” Groh told reporters on Tuesday regarding Wentz. “I mean, he’s got to wear the brace, which I imagine if we all walked around with a brace on it wouldn’t quite feel the same as it would without the brace. But I don’t see any real limitations in his mobility or pocket mobility to be able to scramble for a first down.”Asked whether Wentz has the same elusiveness as he did before the injury, Groh said, “I think he’s a pretty mobile quarterback for the size that he is. And in this league, he does a good job of standing there, sliding the pocket, getting out of the pocket Womens Anthony Barr Jersey , and looking to run or throw once he breaks outside the pocket.”So how does 2018 post-injury Wentz compare to 2017 pre-injury Wentz?“I think he’s played well. I mean, for a guy that’s just played in two games, had really no preseason games to prepare at all, Carson’s played really well for us. And we all have to raise the level of our game. That’s certainly not on Carson’s shoulders, it’s on all of us. And whether we won or lost on Sunday, we’d be sitting here saying the same things. There’s a lot of things we need to get better at to have the kind of season we want to have.”Wentz has three turnovers in two games, and he has been sacked nine times. The latter is more of a concern, given the propensity for injury.

Weekend Open Thread: August 25th and 26th Youth Everson Griffen Jersey , 2018 Good Morning!Since I’m not local but pay for Sunday Ticket I wasn’t able to watch the game last night, however I did follow the game thread (thank you Nanya) and it sounded like a mix bag of results through the first half.If I understand correctly, our rookie kicker won the kicking competition over Kobra Kai Forbath, then promptly missed his first two field goal attempts wide left, just great. Obviously I’ve seen the score this morning, still going to watch on DVR though.While we’re waiting impatiently for the regular season to start we’ll continue with our weekend thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Have another cup of coffee or a beer if you’re so inclined and drop by for some fan wisdom and snark. It’s going to be a hawt taek weekend, have fun but be considerate.Around the DN since our last thread:Skelly10 writes LB Vikings Antwione Williams was fined for making a tackle on a QB roughing the passer against the Jacksonville Jaguars.The Vikings were looking for some clarity last night per Ted.Welcome to the Sloterhouse: Kyle Sloter leads the Vikings to 21-20 victory over Seahawks from Chris.Wludford says QB Kyle Sloter should back up Kirk Cousins, spot on!Vikings news from other sources:From Vikings.com Head Coach Mike Zimmer addressed the media after Friday’s win over Seattle.How about some post game sound from Jake Wieneke, Chad Beebe, Kyle Sloter and new Vikings Safety George Iloka.League news: From NFL.com What we learned from last night’s preseason games.Adrian Peterson states case for featured RB role.Josh Gordon set to take part in Browns walkthroughs.From the Players Tribune: Journey to Self-Julius Thomas.We come to today’s media selection: If football coaches were honest (thanks Tor66)Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:-No discussion of politics or religion-No feeding of the trolls-This isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie http://www.thevikingsfootballauthentic.com/xavier-rhodes-jersey-authentic , please use spoiler tags-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer-If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away-While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings! With his MMA-trained hands knocking would-be tacklers out of the way, Chandler Jones has quietly become one of the best defensive players in the NFL.The league sack leader with a franchise-record 17 last season as an outside linebacker, Jones has switched to defensive end in the team's new scheme and is harassing quarterbacks as well or better than he has in the past.Take last week's 28-18 win at San Francisco, for example. Jones had six tackles, a sack, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a pass swatted down (preventing a two-point conversion). He was named NFC defensive player of the week for his performance."The standard that he put on tape this past week is what the standard is," defensive coordinator Al Holcomb said. "That's the expectation level for him. And we talk about that each and every day, being at his best on game day, coming to play and impacting the game because he can wreck a game."But Jones said he was nowhere near his best against the 49ers."I wouldn't say this is my best football Youth Harrison Smith Jersey ," Jones said. "A lot of people might say that, but there were a lot of plays on Sunday that I left out there. I wish I could get them back. But that's the thing about football, you have the opportunity to correct those mistakes."Next up is a matchup with the Vikings Sunday in Minnesota, where the Cardinals will have to deal with Kirk Cousins and an array of big-play receivers.Jones expects a lot of attention."You're always getting double-teamed, being a pass rusher," he said. "You just have to be aware."In the offseason, Jones trains with his brother, MMA fighter Jon "Bones" Jones. It's helped in his endurance, Jones said, and "pretty much hand speed.""When you play the sport of football, whoever has the faster hands wins," he said.Holcomb said that when Jones plays like he did last weekend, it rubs off on everyone around him.It "picks up the other 10 men in the huddle," Holcomb said. "And they're trying to match his intensity and his play and his production."The Cardinals sent guard Jonathan Cooper and a second-round pick to acquire Jones in 2016. A year later, Arizona signed Jones to a five-year, $83 million contract with $53 million guaranteed. He's lived up to that kind of paycheck.Since 2016, Jones has 32 sacks Youth Anthony Barr Jersey , more than anyone else in the NFL. Von Miller is second with 27 1/2. He had seven more tackles for loss last season than any other player, in addition to leading the league in sacks. But he does it without any bravado."He's one of the premier defensive ends in the National Football League," Holcomb said. "He goes about his business in a quiet-type fashion, which is fine. If he continues to play like this, which we're counting on him doing, the recognition will come."Jones said the accolades don't mean much."I get that question all the time about not getting national recognition," he said. "My biggest thing each and every season, even when I was back in New England, is just earning the respect and the trust from my peers, my co-workers, this locker room, the coaches, the training staff, everyone around here. I feel if I can get trust from those guys I have those guys telling me 'You're doing a good job' then I'm happy."

I said this multiple times before and early this season (if I hadn’t deleted my twitter account I’d find the tweets) but I said multiple times that I wanted to see the Chargers make the playoffs http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-trevor-williams-jersey , and do so with a record good enough to host a game, so that the league would be forced to make a very interesting, and embarrassing, choice. I said it again after the Chargers beat the Chiefs in Kansas City in this article. How fun will it be to get a little revenge watching the Spanos family members responsible for dragging the team out of San Diego be forced to sound excited about the fact that the League is dictating to them that their “home” playoff game will be played at a stadium that isn’t their home stadium. Well apparently, this exact thing is being discussed, according to this article from Jason La Canfora. The league is reportedly worried about the AFC Championship being hosted in a 27k seat soccer stadium. So worried in fact Desmond King Jersey , that they are even discussing a Sunday Night/Monday Night NFC/AFC Championship lineup in the event that the Rams and Chargers are both hosting so they can both play there and have time to reset the field. Now, this is coming from La Canfora, who has been wrong before when citing unnamed “sources” as he does here. However, in this instance, his unnamed sources even offered up a quote. “Playing a game of that magnitude in a stadium that small is a big issue to a lot of people around here,” one league source said of Dignity Health Sports Park. “There isn’t any plan in place to move it now that I am aware of Authentic Russell Okung Jersey , but there was a lot of talk about that when it looked like the Chargers might win the division. I would expect there to be conversations about that through the weekend as things happen.”When you pair this report, with Russell Okung’s public accusation that Commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t want the Chargers to host a game in their home stadium, it’s starting to look like more that a rumor.Which Chargers defensive player are you most looking forward to watching against the 49ers? It’s week 4 of the preseason and the roster is all but set. Which defensive player will you have your eyes on tonight?Isaac Gutierrez: It is Kyzir White. Up to this point it seems he has outplayed Jatavis Brown for the starting spot they are currently battling for. One more impressive game could put an end to the debate and win him the week one starting job.Cole Thompson: Kyzir White. He’s still learning who to transition from strong safety to weakside linebacker but has shown improvement following the last two preseason outings. Similar to Jatavis Brown, both are solid against the run but have the ability to play in coverage against running backs and tight ends out of the backfield. A strong game from the rookie could send Brown down the depth chart.Jamie Hoyle: I must be a glutton for punishment because I think I’ll be most focused on Jatavis Brown on defense. He hasn’t responded well to the training camp battle and has typically looked like the worst and least reliable linebacker on the roster this preseason. I’d hoping we’ll see more confident reads, more precise angles and, god willing http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-michael-schofield-jersey , dramatically better tackling. I think the writing is on the wall for Kyzir White to open the season as the starting WILL, so now I just want Jatavis to show some pride and put his best foot forward as a backup. I know this much: he’d be hard pressed to be any worse than he was last week.Michael Peterson: I will be watching Jatavis Brown and Hayes Pullard. Both are heading in opposite directions than most people expected. Pullard looks much improved while Brown seems unable to put it back together. At the end of the day, we gotta trust that the staff will make the right decisions on the last few position battles still being fought for.Matthew Stanley: I’ll be watching 3rd round pick Justin Jones. He hasn’t played yet and interior DL has been a massive concern so far this preseason. The Chargers need to know what they have in the rookie, even against backups. I don’t want him to do poorly overall, but I’m almost hoping its a rough showing for him to give the team a little urgency to sign Johnathan Hankins, who they have already met with.Richard Wade: I’ll be keeping a close eye on Jatavis Brown. He showed so much promise during his rookie season Caleb Sturgis Jersey , but at this point, he’s actually in danger of being on the bubble for the first round of cuts. It will be very interesting to see how he responds to that pressure.Louis Gorini: I want to see Justin Jones. The Chargers have yet to solve the middle of their defense in my opinion and maybe Jones can be part of that solution. Depending on how raw he looks, could open up the door for a Johnathan Hankins signing, which I’m all for.Garrett Sisti: Anthony Lynn said the WILL spot is still up for grabs so Jatavis Brown is going to have to have a strong showing to make it a real competition. Justin Jones is another guy we haven’t seen this preseason so he’s a guy I’ll be watching closely too.Jamie Sewell: I’m looking at Jatavis Brown. I don’t think he’s necessarily on the roster bubble, but if he wants to be anything more than a Special Teams contributor this year, he needs to rebound in a big way from last week.Ruben J. Gonzalez: I will be looking to see if Justin Jones has the chops to hold his own and can contribute this year. Brandon Mebane is clearly not the Mebane from two years ago when he first came to the Chargers Cheap Melvin Ingram Jersey , so if Jones can be the person that can be trusted to start taking his snaps away, that will relieve a lot of worry. They say there is talk about Johnathan Hankins possibly signing with the Chargers. A great showing tonight could send that notion away to bed.Which defensive player will you be focused on tonight?

WR Dylan Cantrell Stating His Case For Training Camp MVP Prior to the NFL Draft http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brandon-mebane-jersey , wide receiver Dylan Cantrell was one of my personal favorites throughout the draft process. At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, Cantrell possesses one of the highest recorded RAS (relative athletic scores) measurements ever recorded.For those of you unaware of the tool, RAS takes the height, weight, and all other measurements from the usual NFL Combine events and creates a score out of 10. Anything above eight is considered “elite.” As you can see below, Cantrell’s score ranks 30th out of 1 Tyrell Williams Jersey ,876 wide receivers tested. That puts him in the 98th percentile in his position.Obviously this measurement tool doesn’t have a 100% correlation to success in the NFL, but it gives us some context into just how gifted the young wide receiver is.Those in attendance have laid witness to highlight catch after highlight catch from Cantrell as he continues to distance himself from that dreaded roster bubble. After the team had a day off on Wednesday, Cantrell resumed his tirade on the team’s defensive backs:The highlight of the day might have been one of Cantrell’s easiest catches. As quarterback Geno Smith dropped a dime among dimes in 1-on-1 drills, #84 only had to open his arms as the ball sailed perfectly into his waiting hands.I’m not sure how long this momentum will last for Cantrell but I think he has done enough that, barring a giant meltdown during the preseason, he should be a no-brainer to make thisteam come final cuts.Los Angeles Chargers Daily Links: Kyzir White is a playmaker 5 takeaways from a Chargers’ blowout vs. Buffalo Bills - Alexander InsdorfDerwin James was a human wrecking ball on the field Authentic Keenan Allen Jersey , getting to Josh Allen with sacks, as well as playing some great pass defense. Kyzir White transitioned nicely into a linebacker role and made some great plays, including a great interception to seal the game. Uchenna Nwosu got a great sack in the first quarter and got four tackles to go along with it.Los Angeles Chargers Head Coach Anthony Lynn Requires Discipline and Accountability - Ernie PadaonThis likely was a soft call for the refs, but King was caught and penalized. Lynn was not having it. Lynn could have went right after the refs, but instead he went to his player and let him know that you cannot allow little mistakes like that in key positions. We were playing the Bills this time, but when you start playing the top teams in the league Youth Michael Schofield Jersey , these things matter!Melvin Ingram, Derwin James fill void left by Joey Bosa's absence - Eric Williams“I feel like we got good pressure, but we can always have more,” Ingram said. “We have to get back in the lab and keep practicing. We still have to try and get to the quarterback. If every passing play isn’t a sack, we can always get more.”PFF's Week 2 NFL Team of the Week - Gordon McGuinnessTransitioning to linebacker with the Chargers, White is clearly taking to the move well Womens Isaac Rochell Jersey , earning a spot in our Team of the Week. Showing off his ability as a playmaker, he had a pass breakup and an interception in coverage.Fantasy stats to know from Week 2 - Scott BarrettThrough two weeks, Ekeler is our single-highest-graded running back. Ekeler has 24 more rushing yards than Gordon on eight fewer carries. Ekeler is averaging more yards after contact per attempt (4.5) than Gordon is averaging in general (3.8). Ekeler has only 32 fewer receiving yards than Gordon but on 11 fewer targets (and two fewer dropped passes). Gordon has been much maligned for his career 3.80 yards per carry average, and though I think it’s unlikely, it is possible Ekeler turns this into a committee at some point in the season.Social Media Information:BFTB Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBFTB Twitter: Follow @BFTB_ChargersThe Lightning Round Twitter: Follow @Lightning_RoundThe Lightning Round Facebook: Click here to like our pageBFTB Manager: Richard Wade: Follow @RichardWade Custom Dallas Cowboys Jerseys

Since 2017 www.thesaintsfootballauthentic.com , the NFL has embraced player celebrations, ending decades of No Fun League attitude and turning it into a marketing ploy. But there’s still a glitch or two that the league needs to iron out.The biggest comes in the shape of a large red kettle that the Cowboys put in their end zone every Thanksgiving, leaving it there through the end of the regular season to promote the efforts of the Salvation Army to raise money for the less fortunate. Though the kettle is clearly part of the field, the NFL has fined Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for depositing $21 into the kettle following a touchdown, and for later depositing quarterback Dak Prescott into it. (Prescott got a warning letter for his involvement in the stunt.)Contrast that with 2016, when Elliott jumped into the kettle but didn’t receive a fine — even though the league had yet to change the rules to promote celebrations.Technically New Orleans Saints T-Shirt , yes, the use of the kettle as a prop violates the language of the rulebook, since only the ball can be used as a prop when celebrating. So why not change the rule?More importantly, what’s the reason for not changing the rule? There’s nothing about putting cash or teammates in the kettle that creates animosity between teams or otherwise sends a message that the league shouldn’t want to send. Instead, it promotes giving to the cause the Cowboys embraced years ago, with the kettle now in its 21st year of on-field use.Hell New Orleans Saints Hats , why not put a kettle in every end zone at every stadium, space permitting? If the NFL wants a free and easy way to be a responsible corporate citizen, the active incorporation of the Salvation Army kettle into touchdown celebrations at every NFL venue would do the trick.At a minimum, let players who play in Dallas have some fun with the kettle, including the players from the visiting team.聽Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore produced $23 from his pants last Thursday and dropped it into the kettle. Hopefully, he won’t be fined for it. Saints Hall of Fame linebacker Rickey Jackson is recovering after surgery Wednesday to relieve pressure on his brain.Via Mike Triplett of ESPN.com New Orleans Saints Womens Hoodie , the 60-year-old Jackson had suffered a recent fall and a subdural hematoma, and the procedure was done to drain the blood from the area and reduce the pressure.“He is resting comfortably, very alert and talking like himself with nurses, doctors and all around him,” his daughter Rickeyah told Ken Trahan of the New Orleans Saints’ Hall of Fame. “I want to stress that he is doing fine and that any reports otherwise simply are not accurate. . . .“One thing led to another from the fall. He is not walking around yet, but he is doing well. We are told that in a few days Womens Customized New Orleans Saints Jerseys , we should have him back home. They had to drain it and relieve the pressure. The doctors said it was a routine procedure to lighten it. Despite what others may say or think, it has nothing to do with football or nothing to do with his cancer.”Jackson had prostate cancer surgery in 2015 but has been cancer-free since.He spent 13 years with the Saints and was part of their “Dome Patrol” linebacker corps which included Sam Mills, Pat Swilling, and Vaughn Johnson. Jackson played his final two years with the 49ers and won a Super Bowl. He finished with 128.0 sacks, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010. www.nflshopoutlet.com/jacksonville-jaguars

Analysis of new Saints WRs Michael Floyd & Brandon Tate | Who stands out on special teams? [Podcast] Camp Bodies or nah?That’s the discussion as Deuce and Ellias dig into the late breaking news that the Saints have reached an agreement with former Arizonal Cardinal 1st round pick Michael Floyd and return specialist Brandon Tate.The fact(s) of the matter is while these moves may end up being nothing on the surface if either of these guys stick. Yesterday’s transactions could be looked at as small pieces to a championship puzzle months down the line Womens Mark Ingram Jersey , or simply more moves made to fill a 90 man offseason roster.Tre’quan Da’ Don!!Meanwhile the Tre’quan Smith hype train is as real as a chance at love(bonus cool points for whomever catches that reality TV reference) as the rookie has made an impact early in training camp.The Saints have Michael Thomas as Drew Brees #1 WR but could Smith impress enough to wrestle the primary deep threat role away from Ted Ginn?WDC Question & AnswerWill the Saints keep 4 QB’s (28:11)Is P.J. Williams a possible candidate to be cut?

Whatever amount you wish to donate per month (1 dollar? 5?) helps us tremendously! There are only two teams on byes this week, but both the Lions and Saints have significant starters to replace at a few key positions.In addition, some notable injuries make the race to the waiver wire as frenetic as usual. The free agent pool doesn't have many appealing options this week, though, so if you need to fill a major need, try first to make a trade.RUNNING BACKSMIKE DAVIS, Seattle (14.5 percent owned): We have alerted you to him before, yet he remains vastly underowned. Davis does split carries with Chris Carson but his running mate is oft-injured and Davis seems to be the preferred goal line option for the Seahawks. He has three rushing TDs in his past two games. Seattle has a renewed emphasis on the running game so Davis should be rostered even as a part-time RB.WENDELL SMALLWOOD www.neworleanssaintsteamonline.com , Philadelphia (7.7): The Philadelphia RBs have been beset by injuries, most importantly to Jay Ajayi, who is done for the season with a knee injury. Smallwood could play an expanded role for the Eagles as soon as Thursday against the Giants. Smallwood carried 10 times for 56 yards and a TD and caught three passes for 35 yards when he was last asked to step forward for Ajayi in Week 3.RONALD JONES, Tampa Bay (18.2): Get ahead of the pack on this one. The Buccaneers have the worst rushing offense in the league and while the rookie has dealt with blitz pickup and receiving issues, he can still be dynamic with the ball in his hands. The Buccaneers desperately need to establish some sort of a running game to take pressure off Jameis Winston and keep their highly vulnerable defense off the field a little more.WIDE RECEIVERSCHRISTIAN KIRK, Arizona (11.4): The Cardinals rookie has registered double-digit fantasy performances in point per reception leagues in two of his past three games. Last week, he caught a 75-yard TD from Josh Rosen. The rookie QB has been erratic so far but despite some issues at that position, Kirk is starting to emerge as the team's top receiving playmaker, which has been needed with Larry Fitzgerald underperforming and battling some injuries.TRE'QUAN SMITH New Orleans Saints T-Shirt , New Orleans (1.0): Another rookie, Smith officially announced his pro arrival with three receptions for 111 yards and two scores on Monday night. Drew Brees does spread the ball around to many of his targets when everyone is healthy, but the Saints have been high on Smith ever since he arrived at training camp. He could force is way into the mix more and may not be just a big-play artist.MARQUES VALDES-SCANTLING, Green Bay (3.2); Yes, another first-year player worth adding. Valdes-Scantling stepped into a void for an injury-depleted Packers WR crew and caught seven passes for 68 yards and a TD, and came up just short on a second potential score. Availability at WR may continue to be an issue for some top Green Bay pass-catchers, and Valdes-Scantling may contribute at least as the Packers third WR in the near future, which will make him worthy of bye week filler consideration at minimum.TIGHT ENDSCAMERON BRATE, Tampa Bay (16.7): Winston is back at QB for the Buccaneers New Orleans Saints Hats , and O.J. Howard is out, so that means opportunities for Brate to cash in at least in the near future. He has scored in each of his last two games and in the previous two seasons, he caught a total of 14 TD passes working heavily with Winston. The Tampa Bay offense will be involved in a lot of shootouts and Brate is a prime red zone target for Winston.C.J. UZOMAH, Cincinnati (10.2): With Tyler Eifert out, Uzomah has been announced as the preferred TE of choice for Andy Dalton and the Bengals. Last week he caught two passes for 43 yards, but better times are ahead. The Bengals offense looks potent and balanced and Dalton will always strongly consider throwing to his tight end in scoring situations.QUARTERBACKSC.J. BEATHARD, San Francisco (3.1): He takes sacks and commits turnovers, and you will not start him in a one QB league, but Beathard is proving to be a capable fantasy backup because the 49ers will be playing from behind very frequently. You have to consider him as a streamer New Orleans Saints Hoodie , because in his past two games, he has thrown for 647 yards and four touchdowns.JAMEIS WINSTON, Tampa Bay (12.7): He may not win a lot of games but Winston has weapons in the passing game, a lack of run support and a bad defense that will force him to trade blows with opposing offenses quite often. There is going to be a lot of passing volume for Winston, and the high-scoring fun begins this week against the Falcons. Custom Los Angeles Rams Jerseys

Just when the NFL was enjoying a ratings rebound and an explosion of offensive firepower that has fans giddy over their favorite and/or fantasy teams Authentic Sheldon Rankins Jersey , the league reverted to its bumbling ways in Week 13.It began with a prime-time officiating fiasco by its most experienced crew.The poor performance by referee Walt Anderson's crew Thursday night sullied an otherwise classic Saints-Cowboys showdown that reminded everyone defense can be sexy, too.Jaylon Smith's helmet-to-helmet hit on Alvin Kamara was the most egregious non-call, one that Fox Sports rules analyst Mike Pereira called "a clear example of leading with the crown of the helmet."Just feet away from the illegal hit were field judge Terry Brown and line judge Byron Boston, both of whom kept their yellow flags tucked safely away as New Orleans coach Sean Payton went ballistic.Just under the six-minute mark came the most crucial bad call.With the Cowboys facing third-and-5 from the 50-yard line, Saints cornerback P.J. Williams tackled Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley a full yard shy of the first-down marker, but the officials said to move the chains.Out of challenges, Payton was helpless to get the call reviewed, and because it was outside of 2 minutes and not a scoring play, the league's hands were tied, too.Payton had his own inexplicable blunder after the teams traded takeaways in the final minutes.After Dallas got the ball back at the Saints 16 with 2:08 left Youth Tyeler Davison Jersey , Ezekiel Elliott ran for 2 yards and Payton burned his last timeout three seconds before the 2-minute warning.Had he waited, the Cowboys likely would have run twice, forcing the Saints to call their final timeout and running more time off the clock. A field goal would have left the Saints down six with about 45 seconds for Drew Brees to try to pull off some last-minute magic.But the timeout at 2:03 meant the Cowboys could throw on second down knowing the clock would stop regardless once the play was over. A pass interference call gave them a first down and they ran out the clock.The next day brought more bad news for the league when TMZ released surveillance video of Kareem Hunt shoving and kicking a woman in an altercation that ultimately led to the star running back's release from the Kansas City Chiefs and landed Hunt on the commissioner's exempt list.On Sunday, Hunt told ESPN that the league had never interviewed him about the matter, which prompted the NFL to release a statement defending itself .Hunt was cut the same day Washington Redskins executive Doug Williams apologized for calling linebacker Reuben Foster's domestic violence arrest "small potatoes" compared to crimes committed by people in power.The Redskins took plenty of heat after claiming Foster off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers, who released him Tuesday, three days after he was arrested and charged with domestic violence in Tampa, Florida.Sunday's games brought another slew of gaffes.Most notable was the Los Angeles Chargers getting away with a blatant false start on a touchdown for the second time this season.In October, Chargers right tackle Russell Okung wasn't whistled for an obvious false start on a touchdown play against Cleveland, and shortly afterward http://www.saintsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-terron-armstead-jersey , the NFL fired down judge Hugo Cruz for inadequate performance.On Sunday night in Pittsburgh, the Chargers did it again , only this time it was right tackle Sam Tevi who clearly jumped early on Philip River's 46-yard touchdown throw to Travis Benjamin."We've seen it before and it led to a dismissal. I certainly hope that doesn't happen again," said Pereira, noting "that was a miss that was on the same level as the one" in October.Those seven points made all the difference in the Chargers' 33-30 win over the Steelers, who fell to 174-1-1 when holding a 16-point lead at home."There was no explanation other than they missed it," coach Mike Tomlin said afterward.Tomlin cut off further questions about the officiating lest he open himself up to a fine from the league office. "I've sent enough money to New York," he said.The game ended in bizarre fashion as the Steelers jumped offsides three consecutive times, first on a missed field goal, then on a blocked attempt and finally on the game winner.Pereira and fellow former NFL head of officials Dean Blandino said on Fox Sports that the crew could have awarded the Chargers the points even without the ball going through the uprights because of an obscure league rule prohibiting teams from repeatedly committing deliberate fouls to prevent a score.Blandino said he would have invoked the rule."I think the rule book is clear. You give a warning and then after the warning Cameron Jordan Jersey , you award the score," Blandino said.Not all the bad calls were made by the men in stripes.The New York Giants coaching staff, for example, must be regretting sending receiver Odell Beckham Jr. out on their "hands" team.After the Bears kicked a field goal with 1:13 left to pull to 27-20, they went for an onside kick, which they recovered thanks to Beckham's business decision not to get into the scrum for the recovery ."I could dive in there and still not get the ball, so it was a very tough call," an irritated OBJ said after the Giants pulled out the win in overtime on a day when he became the first player since 1924 to record multiple games with a TD pass and a TD catch in a single season."Nobody should even question me on my effort and my heart," Beckham insisted. "That's the last thing you can do. You can question me as a person, as a man Authentic Vonn Bell Jersey , whatever you want to do. But my heart and my effort can never be questioned. Ever."Except when he doesn't go for the football on the onside kick to seal the win. Welcome to Saints Gameday!Today:New Orleans Saints (2-1) at New York Giants (1-2)The Saints face the Giants at MetLife Stadium today with a chance to improve their record to 3-1.Considering the amount of high-end talent at wide receiver on the field today, expect a lot of yards through the air in this one.It’s no secret the Saints’ secondary is struggling right now and it certainly isn't likely to get any better today.The Saints’ pass rush will need to take the pressure off the back end by putting pressure on Eli & co.There should be some fireworks on the field today and hopefully the Saints leave with a big win when its all over.Who Dat!Here are your links to follow all of today’s Saints Week 4 action:Game time:Sunday, September 30th - 1:25pm PST / 3:25pm CST / 4:25pm ESTLocation:MetLife Stadium - East Rutherford, New JerseyWeather Forecast:71潞 - Sunny TV Broadcasts:NFL on CBS- Jim Nantz, Tony RomoLocal broadcasts in your region can be found hereDIRECTV NFL Sunday Ticket:Channel 716Radio:WWL 870AM/105.3FM New Orleans-Featuring: Zach Streif, Deuce McAllister, and Kristian GaricSIRIUS XM 821 / Internet 822 New Orleans Saints radio network affiliates can be found hereNew York Giants radio network affiliates can be found hereOnline Streaming:NFL GAMEPASS (Subscription Required)iOS/Android Streaming:NFL AppOdds:Saints -3.5; Over/Under 50.5Uniform Combination:Color Rush: White Jerseys and White PantsOpponent Blog:Big Blue ViewJoin us an hour before game time to hang out and discuss the games with your fellow CSC members.

The NFL trading deadline passed and the New York Giants decided to stand pat despite speculation they would be wheeling and dealing with a second straight season going down the tubes.Linebacker Olivier Vernon Authentic Wil Lutz Jersey , cornerback Janoris Jenkins and safety Landon Collins will finish the season with the Giants, who are 1-7 for the second straight year and have virtually no chance of making the playoffs in Pat Shurmur's first season as coach.Cornerback Eli Apple and 2016 All-Pro defensive tackle Damon Harrison were the only players traded, and they were shipped the week before the deadline.Heading into their bye week, the question facing Shurmur is where does the team go from here.To be honest, there isn't a lot he can do. This team has only made the playoffs once since winning the Super Bowl in 2012. There is not a lot of depth.The one change fans and the media want is at quarterback. Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is as stationary as a quarterback can be and that does not work in the NFL, especially when his offense line is playing poorly. The 37-year-old has been sacked 31 times and this past Sunday he seemed to ducking as soon as the pressure got near him.Many wanted Shurmur to put in rookie Kyle Lauletta to see what the fourth-round pick out of Richmond could do.That's probably not going to happen now.The 22-year-old was arrested Tuesday on motor vehicle and related disorderly persons offenses while driving near a road construction site to practice.Weehawken police said he failed to obey a police officer's order and almost hit the officer while making an illegal turn. He was charged with eluding police, obstructing administration of law and resisting arrest. He was also charged with reckless driving, disregarding an officer's directions Youth Patrick Robinson Jersey , improper turn and failure to remain in a marked lane.He might face a league suspension. The Giants would look foolish replacing Manning for him. Veteran Alex Tanney also isn't the answer."We're trying to do what we can to win this season, and certainly you always do what you can in the short run," Shurmur said before heading into the bye.What the Giants will do is evaluate all facets of their games to find plays that work.There is little they can do with the offense line. It was revamped to start the season and 60 percent has changed. Center Jon Halapio broke a leg and is done for the season. Right tackle Ereck Flowers was cut and free agent right guard Patrick Omameh struggled, was hurt and lost his job. Left tackle Nate Solder, the big free agent signing who has struggled at times, and rookie second-round draft pick Will Hernandez are the only starters remaining.The talent in the skill positions is obvious. Odell Beckham Jr. (61 catches for 785 yards) and Sterling Shepard (40 for 542) are outstanding receivers.Shurmur needs to find a way to get second-year tight end Evan Engram more involved. He was an explosive receiver last season and that has been missing.Saquon Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, has helped the passing game Cheap Mark Ingram Jersey , catching 58 passes for 497 yards and two touchdowns.The biggest need is to get the running game going. Despite getting 519 yards from Barkley, the rest of the team has contributed just over 100 yards. It has allowed opposing defenses to play the pass, limiting the offense. The unit has hurt itself with penalties and sacks that have created too many third-and-long plays, and it has settled for too many field goals, averaging 18.5 points."We got good players," said Manning, who wants to remain the starting quarterback. "There's some good football. There are some good plays. There's some big plays, some explosive plays. There's just some bad football as well. So Wil Lutz Jersey , it's just cleaning up the bad stuff."The positive for the Giants has been James Bettcher's defense. It has given the Giants a chance to win games. Its only drawback is it has not taken the ball away more. New York has seven takeaways."We always said from the beginning, we got all the weapons that we showcase, and we expected to win," Collins said of the season. "So yeah, I'm very surprised by it."Barkley, who lost only five games in his last two seasons at Penn State, said losing in the NFL has been an adjustment for him, as it has been for many of his teammates."It's part of the NFL http://www.saintsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-demario-davis-jersey , it's a part of the sport. It's adversity right now," Barkley said. "When we get this thing going, and we get this thing rolling, we're going to look back at this and laugh, and see how this made us tougher." “The Crowd shouldn’t have an impact, they won’t have an impact” - Robert Woods Rams WRIt’s Sean McVay and Jared Goff’s first road playoff game together and Sean Payton would absolutely love for the Who Dat Nation to give them a warm welcome in the dome on Sunday.How the fans can impact the game and what the defense can do to play off that are just a couple of the topics discussed on Thursday’s episode of Who Dat Confessional.Podcast TopicsInjury ReportThoughts on the budding Marcus Peters and Sean Payton RivalryStand up and Get Crunk - How the fans can impact the Jared Goff and the Rams offenseDisguise Disguise DisguiseWhy to expect more zone defense from the Saints D vs Rams OBest way to stop Todd Gurley and C.J.

Sean McVay and Jon Gruden both knew they've got to coach against each other in a real game just 23 days after the Rams' preseason visit from the Raiders.So while the Raiders' return to the Coliseum was a thrill for their faithful Southern California fan base Philip Rivers Jersey , the Rams' young coach and his veteran role model both made sure the action on the field was as meaningless as possible.Rookie John Kelly rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown, and the Rams welcomed the Raiders back to LA with a 19-15 preseason victory over Oakland on Saturday.Chris Warren rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown for the Raiders in their return to the venerable stadium that was their home for 13 seasons during their largely successful tenure in Los Angeles. Their passionate local following turned out in force, filling the 95-year-old arena with black jerseys and loud cheers."It was awesome being back here," Gruden said. "If you understand the Raiders, they have had a history here, a championship history here. There are still a lot of fans that remember those teams, and rightfully so."But both teams rested nearly all of their presumptive starters and used no significant parts of their playbook, thanks in part to a weird NFL scheduling decision that forced these teams to play an exhibition three weeks before they meet in their Monday night regular-season opener in Oakland."I've never been in a preseason game like this," Gruden said. "This is tough, in our first training camp as a football team, to have our second (preseason game) against a team we open up with."I don't know in the history of the NFL if that's ever happened. I'm not going to sit up here and cry about it, because it's the same for them as it is us. But we didn't want to play our starters, and we didn't want them to hear our audibles and hand signals. I don't think they wanted us to get a feel for them either, so it was a strange ballgame."Although both coaches revealed as little about their teams as possible http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-desmond-king-jersey , McVay still relished his first chance to face Gruden, who employed McVay as a 22-year-old assistant wide receivers coach on his final staff with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008. McVay frequently cites Gruden and his brother, Jay, as major influences on his coaching style and mentality."Everybody knows what a huge amount of respect I have for Jon, and how great he's been to me over the course of my coaching career," McVay said. "(But) they were pretty regulated. Very similar in terms of the approach by both teams. Very vanilla."The Rams' backups dominated the Raiders' reserves in the first half, taking a 13-0 lead while holding Oakland to 58 yards and one first down. Oakland trailed 16-0 before mounting a rally, but the Raiders failed on their second 2-point conversion attempt of the day following Griff Whalen's 10-yard TD catch with 9:52 to play."I was going to do everything humanly possible to avoid overtime today, yes," Gruden said.Sam Ficken then hit his second field goal for the Rams with 5:46 left."It's definitely different, because it's not their starters out there, and you want to save stuff for later," said Rams linebacker Samson Ebukam, one of the few likely regular-season starters who played significant snaps. "You still want to do your best http://www.chargersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mike-pouncey-jersey , though."The Raiders' offense didn't record its second first down of the day until late in the third quarter, but Warren capped the 75-yard drive with a 3-yard TD run. The undrafted free-agent running back from Texas had 86 yards in his preseason debut against Detroit."It's about showing I can play in the league and make the most of my opportunities," Warren said. "I didn't expect to play as much as I did. It was nice to get some good pops in. I was able to get some yards after contact."HOMECOMING GAMEAl Davis moved the Raiders from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982, and their home crowds at the Coliseum quickly developed a reputation for rowdiness and occasional violence. But the Raiders also won the hearts of a generation of Los Angeles football fans with their swagger and success, including a Super Bowl title in their second season in town.The Rams spent the 1980s in Anaheim, further opening the way for the Raiders to become Generation X's favorite team in LA.Both franchises moved after the 1994 season, and the Rams returned home two years ago. The Raiders missed out on the chance to return to LA when the Chargers made their move last year, but the Raiders will be only about 260 miles from Los Angeles when they move to Las Vegas in 2020, making it even easier for LA's silver-and-black fans to back their team.RAIDERS WOESWarren was the clearest standout on a discouraging day for Oakland's offense. Gruden was blunt, calling it "flat-out embarrassing, honestly."E.J. Manuel went 10 for 16 for 89 yards and a touchdown, but also fumbled for the second straight week. The Raiders' backup offensive line struggled to keep the Rams' pressure off Manuel and Connor Cook, who went 6 for 12.MANNION IMPROVESRams backup QB Sean Mannion rebounded from a rocky preseason debut last week in Baltimore, going 10 of 16 for 84 yards while completing passes to eight receivers. Third-stringer Brandon Allen wasn't as sharp Youth Kyzir White Jersey , going 6 for 11 and throwing a terrible interception in the fourth quarter to put Oakland in position for its second TD.INJURIESRaiders: K Eddie Pineiro didn't play because of a groin injury. ... CB Shareece Wright injured his hamstring during the game.Rams: RB Justin Davis didn't play because of a hamstring injury, preventing him from competing with Kelly and Malcolm Brown for the backup job.ANTHEM UPDATEThere were no apparent protests during the national anthem.UP NEXTRaiders: Host the Green Bay Packers on Aug. 24.Rams: Host the Houston Texans on Aug. 25.LB Kyzir White Running With First-Team Defense on Day 3 Following Day 2 of training camp, head coach Anthony Lynn was asked about the performances of several rookies. After some general insight on several players, Lynn’s voice went up an octave as he was asked about his impressions of LB Kyzir White.“It’s hard for me to talk about Kyzir because I get excited,” raved Lynn. “His speed...his attitude...his explosivness...he just has great instincts as a football player.”At a time when many rookies are garnering praise in the early days of training camp, Lynn’s words were noticeably more enthusiastic. Chargers.com’s Ricky Henne was another member of the media who couldn’t help but notice White’s phenomenal first two days of camp:“Several rookies caught my eye today. Linebacker Kyzir White looks like he could be something special, and sure enough, he earned high praise from Head Coach Anthony Lynn later in the day.”According to Fernando Ramirez of NBC San Diego, White parlayed his early performance into some valuable reps with the first-team defense during today’s practice.Of all the rookies players, aside from S Derwin James, White has the shortest track to a starting position on the defense. With the Chargers choosing to play in a nickel or dime defense for the majority of games over a traditional “base” lineup, White will likely slide in at weakside linebacker alongside Denzel Perryman at the second level.

David Moore tried his best not to let the final pass in Seattle's loss to the Los Angeles Chargers last week bother him for long.It's not easy when it's a throw that could have potentially tied the game and forced overtime Youth Isaac Rochell Jersey , but instead bounced off Moore's shoulder and fell incomplete on the final play of Seattle's 25-17 loss.It was shown on seemingly every TV broadcast playing highlights of the game , and while it would have been an exceptionally difficult catch after getting tipped by a Chargers defensive back, Moore wishes he could have made the grab."I tried to stay away from it," Moore said on Thursday. "After a while, I'd say Monday after meetings, I tried to watch it and then I was like Color Rush Kyzir White Jersey , 'It's over with now. I'm on to (the Rams).'"The incompletion was the most difficult moment the second-year wide receiver has faced since becoming part of Seattle's wide receiver rotation. The Seahawks had an untimed down from the 6-yard line needing a touchdown and a 2-point conversion to force overtime.Quarterback Russell Wilson stepped up away from the pass rush and Moore had flashed open running across the back of the end zone.Wilson zipped his pass in Moore's direction, but just a couple of yards away from finding the receiver's hands, the ball was tipped by the Chargers' Jahleel Addae. The tip slightly changed the trajectory of the pass and it started severely wobbling offline. Moore was unable to adjust his hands in time and the ball thudded off his shoulder pads and to the turf."I (saw) it get tipped. I saw the dude come across and I tried to adjust to it but it was a little bit too late," Moore said. "It was a fastball coming in hot, getting touched, it's kind of hard to get your hands where it needs to be after that."Moore said he spent time Sunday night wondering if there are even drills to mimic having a pass change as that one did so close to the receiver."It's a really tough catch. He's tracking the ball Color Rush Philip Rivers Jersey , he sees it coming and all of a sudden the ball takes kind of a strange turn," Seattle offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said. "He was really dejected, really upset. Got a chance to talk to him after the game, said a lot of things still had to happen. That wasn't the reason we won or lost that game, but it was a very difficult play."Moore's development has been one of the big stories of the season for Seattle. His progression from an unknown seventh-round pick in 2017 to becoming the Seahawks' No. 3 receiver was so rapid Seattle felt comfortable releasing veteran Brandon Marshall last week to open a roster spot.While it wasn't a dropped pass, the final play is the first major adversity Moore has faced this season. He was emotional after the game Youth Austin Ekeler Jersey , but said the moment was quickly put in perspective."At first I took it kind of hard, but then I had Doug (Baldwin) and Tyler (Lockett) and all the brothers and stuff, and all the coaches tell me stuff like this happens all the time," Moore said.Derwin James Claims an 80 Player Rating in Madden 19 In a recent article from CBSsports.com, around 20 player ratings for top rookies were released for the upcoming edition of the Madden video games. The ratings for the top-5 quarterbacks, running backs Youth Darius Philon Jersey , and wide receivers were announced before they listed the top-5 grades overall for all defensive players. They were as follows:LB Roquan Smith - 81CB Denzel Ward - 80DE Bradley Chubb - 80S Derwin James - 80DT Vita Vea - 79Some casual fans may find it interesting that James sits at the same rating as Chubb and Ward, both of whom were top-5 overall selection in this year’s draft. The more hardcore film-junkies would argue that James was a top-10 talent in the entire draft so this announcement is more on par with their expectations.The Chargers look to be one of the more talented teams in this year’s version of Madden once again, without having many players reach into the 90+ rating tier. By the end of the 2017 season, the Chargers finished with one, maybe two, players in the 90’s depending on which roster update you were at. The squad on Madden 19 looks to be stacked once more around the skill positions and the defensive line which is always a phenomenal recipe for success on the virtual and real football field.Look for the latest version of Madden tobe released on August 10th and prepare yourself to run the table with the Bolts this season.

After winning the AFC Championship on Sunday New England Patriots Hats , the New England Patriots are now enjoying another bye week before their next game. The weekend off — relatively speaking, the team will still work on getting ready for Super Bowl 53 against the Los Angeles Rams — also allows for defensive signal caller Brian Flores to conduct a second interview with the Miami Dolphins, as the Miami Herald’s Adam Beasley reported earlier today.According to Beasley, the interview will take place today but you should not get your hopes up just yet that Flores suddenly turns down the job that he will likely be offered after the Super Bowl: after all, he is expected to become the Dolphins’ next head coach once the current season is done. Instead, today’s interview will likely be more about concrete visions for a franchise that has already started hiring assistant coaches.That being said, there is still a small albeit unlikely chance that Flores decides to turn down the job: Miami cannot sign the 37-year old to a contract until the season is over and as Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels taught us last year, nothing is set in stone until a deal is signed. However, judging by all we know at this point in time it appears unlikely that this is the way the Flores situation is headed. Is anyone else in shock that the Red Sox just ripped off four straight wins against the Houston Astros to win the American League pennant? I couldn’t have predicted that even if I had a crystal ball sitting right in front of me. The Astros have one of the most complete rosters in baseball, both pitching-wise and hitting-wise New England Patriots Hoodie , and I wasn’t sure the Sox even had a chance in this series despite those 108 regular season wins.But they pulled it off, thanks to David Price conquering his postseason demons in Game 5, and now they are going to play in what will definitely be a very entertaining World Series. I am pretty stoked about this. But before Boston sports fans can start thinking about the World Series, they first have to get ready for the Patriots and the Bears on Sunday, live from Soldier Field in Chicago. It should be another great game; maybe not as crazy as last week’s Sunday night showdown against Kansas City, but the Bears have an outstanding defense and a young offensive unit with a very bright future. It will be another tough test for Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the 4-2 Patriots, whose two losses have both happened on the road. With that being said, lets him some Week 7 picks.(Home teams in caps and lines courtesy of OddsShark.com)CHARGERS (-6.5) over Titans – LondonI absolutely despise the NFL international games, but I do love that we always give London games that aren’t even worth watching. Last week it was Jon Gruden’s Raiders getting ramrodded 27-3 by the Seahawks. This week Customized New England Patriots Jerseys , it’s the less-than-thrilling Titans against the LA Chargers, a team that doesn’t even have any fans. Have fun, London.COLTS (-7.5) over BillsNothing makes me more uncomfortable than getting behind the 1-5 Colts as 7.5-point favorites. But the Bills don’t even have a quarterback right now after Josh Allen’s elbow injury. If Allen was playing, Buffalo could maybe cover this spread. But Derek Anderson is starting this game and I just can’t get behind this Bills offense actually moving the ball and putting up points.On the plus side for Bills fans, Anderson can’t be near as dreadful to watch as Nathan Peterman, who might be the worst quarterback in the history of football. At least they dodged that bullet.EAGLES (-4.5) over PanthersPhilly has momentum right now after a 21-point win over the Giants last week. The Panthers are coming off a tough loss to the Redskins, so any momentum they may have had is now through the floor. On top of that, the Eagles have played pretty good defense when they are at home. This seems like a good time to take the Super Bowl champs minus-4.5.Browns (+3.5) over BUCCANEERSGive Baker Mayfield some protection and he can win you ballgames. Luckily for the Browns, they are facing a Bucs team that has the fourth fewest sacks in the league. This might be one of those games where Mayfield can figure out a way to deliver the goods, as he’s done twice this season.DOLPHINS (+3) over LionsThe Dolphins are 3-0 at home www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com , and the Lions aren’t exactly a contender. It’s surprising that the Lions are three-point favorites on the road against a Miami that shocked the Bears last week, but I guess it is kind of hard to get behind Brock Osweiler no matter what he did the previous week. His history speaks too loudly.But nonetheless, if Osweiler can beat that nasty Chicago defense, who is to say he can’t do it against the Lions?JAGUARS (-4.5) over TexansThe Jags have been blown out in back-to-back games on the road. They might need this home game more than anybody else, but it will be a tough one against a Texans team that is finally starting to click with three straight wins. My pick to win the AFC is not looking too hot.Vikings (-3.5) over JETSThe neat thing about this Vikings team is that it has receivers like Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs that can make an average quarterback like Kirk Cousins look like a Pro Bowler. After a disappointing start to the 2018 season — a Super Bowl or bust season for Minnesota — it’s about time this team starts hitting its stride.Patriots (-2.5) over BEARSThe Patriots faced their biggest test of the season last week against the Chiefs, and now they have their second biggest test this week against the Bears. Chicago is undefeated at home, and the Patriots are winless on the road. But those two defeats both came during their annual September slump. Since New England might not have the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs, they need to fix their road woes sooner rather than later.Cowboys (+1) over REDSKINSThese two teams are unpredictable. This game is a complete tossup.RAVENS (-2.5) over SaintsDrew Brees is one of the game’s all-time elite quarterbacks, but this Baltimore defense is playing lights out right now. They haven’t allowed a second half touchdown all season, and last week they sacked Marcus Mariota a whopping 11 times. I feel good about the Ravens at home New England Patriots T-Shirt , even though New Orleans will always be an extremely tough out as long as Brees is under center.Rams (-9.5) over 49ERSI’ve been living and dying with my “always pick the Rams” rule every single week this season. Last week it bit me in the rear end when Los Angeles failed to cover a seven-point spread, only defeating the Broncos by a mere three points. The very same week, the Niners nearly upset the Packers at Lambeau Field with C.J. Beathard playing quarterback. How unreal is that?But nonetheless, I’m sticking with my “always pick the Rams” rule. It has worked out most weeks.CHIEFS (-6) over BengalsLast week on Sunday Night Football, this high-powered Chiefs offense went into Gillette Stadium and put up 40 points. They are definitely beating the Bengals at home, and they are definitely covering these six points. You can bank on it.FALCONS (-4) over GiantsSaquon Barkley is on his way to becoming the top running back in the league, and he’s come up big for my fantasy in pretty much each of his first six games this season. But he can’t carry this dreadful Giants team on his own. New York fans, enjoy the time you have left with Eli Manning because he is on his way out the door.
