Deshaun Watson Jersey was spun around and still delivered an absolutely perfect TD

Those words from Jerry Jones on Oct. 8 were widely taken as a salvo delivered from an owner to all the players using the national anthem as a platform for protest.

But as I see it, that was no declaration of war on guys kneeling. I don’t think the Cowboys boss Authentic Ryan Miller Jersey was even talking to players. My feeling: he was talking through the players, and hoping his message would land in living rooms from El Paso to Wichita Falls.

And to explain why, I’ll give you the three words that should serve as your guidepost in explaining almost everything NFL: Follow the money.

The Cowboys need those people in West Texas and on the Oklahoma border to watch. The NFL needs those people tune in too. And the proof came in the ratings not that you read about this week, but rather the ones that were privately presented to the owners over the league’s two-day meetings in lower Manhattan.

Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t been terribly accurate against the Lions, but he put this pass to Smith-Schuster just where it needed to be.

Pittsburgh was deep in their own territory because the Lions turned it over on downs on the 1-yard line. The play ended up being a quarterback sneak, but Matthew Stafford took the snap in the shotgun. It didn’t work.

What Elliott told the NFL: During the NFL’s investigation, Elliott said that his accuser had never called the police on him before July 22, 2016, which is untrue. However, he was not directly asked about what happened in Aventura. (pages 20-21) During his appeal hearing in August 2017, Elliott told NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson that he misinterpreted the question and thought Roberts was only asking about the events of the week of July 16-22.

How Chef Geji makes sure Vikings won’t go hungry in London

After 10 years of the International Series, NFL teams have built an efficient drill to tackle the logistics of playing in London. Travel times, sleep schedules, hotel arrangements and stadium scouting reports all have been fine-tuned. Even the meal planning has emerged as part of a science that ensures players and coaches are greeted with a familiar routine.

“I did not come here to rotate,” Ward said after the game. “I did not come here to be a part-time player. I came here to make this defense better.”

Wednesday, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy chimed in. While couching his statements in claims that he’s a “team guy” and will do whatever is asked, McCoy said his pass-rushing effectiveness has been limited by Tampa Bay’s 3-3-5 alignment.

Cerqueira also said in the statement that “there were no criminal charges” and that she “was not in any way physically harmed.”

When the decision not to pursue charges was announced last month, Landry said in a statement that “my daughter’s mother and I will continue to co-parent to raise our child in a happy and healthy environment. I would like to thank my family and friends for their continued support throughout this process.”

The Broward County (Florida) State Attorney’s Office on Tuesday declined to file charges against Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry in relation to an alleged domestic violence incident in March.

An investigation determined there was “no reasonable likelihood” of a conviction. The case involved an encounter between Landry and Estrella Cerqueira, the mother of their daughter.chargers_015

Browns stick with DeShone Kizer Jersey as starting QB vs. Vikings despite benching

Browns coach Hue Jackson announced Wednesday that DeShone Kizer will start this weekend against the Vikings in London, despite being benched in Sunday’s overtime loss to the Titans in favor of Cody Kessler.

Washington settled for the tying field goal, and with under a minute to play, Kansas City easily drove the field for the winning field goal. All of Cousins’ magic went for naught. Instead of being upset, he tried to take solace in the process, not the outcome. When you’re outcome-focused, it’s toxic, Cousins says. I think it comes back to bite you.

Freeney recorded three sacks while with the Falcons last season and hopes the Seahawks can give him one more shot at a second Super Bowl title. Before playing for the Falcons, the seven-time Pro Bowler spent the 2015 season with the Cardinals, notching eight sacks in 11 games.

Freeney, who was a first-round pick of the Colts in the 2002 NFL Draft, was part of the Colts team that won Super Bowl XLI to cap the 2006 season.
Game Mens Linval Joseph Jersey
He has 122 1/2 career sacks, which is second among active players behind Julius Peppers (150) and 18th all time. With one sack, Freeney would move past former Colts teammate Robert Henry Anderson Authentic Jersey Mathis for 17th on the all-time list.

Freeney left the Colts after the 2012 season and signed a two-year deal with the Chargers, but had four sacks over two injury-riddle seasons. One of those sacks, however, was a game-clinching sack of new Seahawks teammate Russell Wilson in 2014.

Ginn’s efficiency may regress a bit, but Drew Brees has a habit of maximizing the output of his receivers.

It didn’t sting as much as the blown lead in Super Bowl Jersey 51, but the upset left players reeling.

(We had a) 17-point lead at the half, and to come away without a win is William Gay Jersey disappointing. Just a pretty inconsistent game for us, Matt Ryan said after the loss.

The Falcons may have thought they’d get a respite from 28-3 jokes until their trip to New England for a Super Bowl rematch next week. The loss to the Dolphins just gave folks more blown-lead material to work with, however.

On paper, this was a game that the Falcons should have won handily. Atlanta was at home, coming off a bye. Julio Jones was back on the field after leaving the Falcons’ Week 4 loss to the Bills with a hip flexor injury. Right tackle Ryan Schraeder was back after a couple of weeks in the concussion protocol.

That group has seen a huge turnaround the past two weeks, as Miami has posted a 44.8 percent GBR during that time frame. The improved blocking pace could continue, as the Dolphins’ next four opponents (New York Jets, Baltimore, Oakland and Carolina) all rank in the bottom half of the league in my good blocking productivity (GBP) metric that measures overall rushing game effectiveness.

This combination of factors could make Ajayi a very good low-cost trade candidate, as he has posted only 20.9 points (ESPN standard scoring) during this improved blocking era and thus might not be seen as being as valuable as he might end up being over the upcoming quartet of contests.

In looking for reasons why Derek Carr had the seventh-lowest fantasy point total of his career against the Chargers (6.8 points), one of the first metrics that stands out is that he was under pass-rush pressure on only 6.5 percent of his dropbacks. That was the lowest total in Week 6 through the Sunday games and is fairly impressive given that the Chargers came into that game ranked sixth in pass pressure rate (30.3 percent, per ESPN Stats & Information).

Penn State great Jack Ham thinks Saquon Barkley Jersey should be top draft pick

Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, the current Heisman front runner in college football, is on pace to have a monster year in 2017, a fact underscored by his performances all season against defenses selling out to stop him.

And he was one College Football Hall of Famer raving about his pro prospects.

The 49ers had at least 23 players kneel during the anthem. Pence tweeted that he would not stay at an event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. President Donald Trump shared via Twitter that he had asked Pence to leave if players kneeled during the anthem. Pence shared a prepared statement 14 minutes after his first tweet about leaving the game.

Of course, player protests during the anthem aren’t about the flag, the national anthem, law enforcement as a whole, or the U.S. military. Players are taking a stand against racial inequality and police brutality that disproportionately affects the black community.

Elite Womens Steve Atwater Jersey And so this is what systemic oppression looks like, Reid said. A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple of things out and leaves the game, with an attempt to thwart our efforts.

Jiri Hudler Authentic Jersey Reid was the first player to join Colin Kaepernick’s protest last season, and he’s continuing the fight.

Brees and the Saints’ offense are holding up their end of the bargain through five games. They went four games without turning the ball over, only giving way against the Lions in a wild game last weekend. New Orleans ranks third in offensive DVOA, while Brees is fourth in passer rating and adjusted net yards per attempt. The Saints are great on offense, which should be no surprise.

NFL ratings continue fall, latest Nielsen numbers show

Through the first six weeks of the NFL season, total viewership of games is down 7.5 percent, compared with the first six weeks of 2016.

Through six weeks (seven games), ESPN’s Monday Night Football viewership is averaging 11.2 million viewers, a 6 percent increase through Week 6, compared with last year.

Compared with the first six weeks of the 2015 season, NFL ratings are off 18.7 percent — a sharp drop, but a smaller decline when considering the general overall fall in television viewership due to people dropping their cable packages.

Last year, the NFL attributed part of its viewership decline during the first nine weeks of the season to competition from presidential election coverage. Viewership was indeed better for the second half of the season, after the election, but it still finished down 8 percent, compared with 2015.

This season’s challenges also include player protests during the national anthem, which have pitted the NFL against President Donald Trump, who again tweeted Wednesday that players should stand to honor the flag.

Floyd is returning from a four-game suspension for “extreme DUI.” Floyd had 446 yards and four touchdowns for the Cardinals last season before the team parted ways with him following his DUI arrest. He signed with the Patriots and played in two games for New England, racking up four catches for 42 yards and a touchdown.

Dalvin Cook ran for 354 yards and two touchdowns for the Vikings before his rookie season ended with a torn ACL. On Thursday, the Vikings signed veteran running back Stevan Ridley to round out the running back depth chart, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Earl Thomas Jersey forced a fumble on Todd Gurley Jersey with a karate chop

Earl Thomas is one of the most entertaining safeties in the NFL because of how ferocious he is when playing the game.

What she told the prosecutor’s office: During her intake interview, there was no mention of choking, throwing her against a wall, or him saying she was lucky that he has not killed her yet. The alleged victim said everything was fine during the day Monday, but early Tuesday morning, they had another argument. She said he told her, You’re in my house, you’re my puppy dog and when she tried to leave, he replied, no, sit the fuck down.

Tyrell Williams, meanwhile, played his lowest snap share of the season (68 percent) but was on the field for 89 percent of the pass plays. Travis Benjamin took the biggest hit, handling only one target while seeing the field on 38 percent of the pass plays. He was on the field for at least 68 percent of the team’s pass plays during each of the team’s first five games. The rookie is worth no more than an end-of-bench spot for now, but his presence is obviously bad news for Tyrell Williams and Benjamin. Only Keenan Allen should be in lineups against Denver this week.

It was overturned on review and ruled a fumble. But the refs stole a chance for Jacksonville to advance the ball after linebacker Telvin Smith forced the turnover.

Game Kids Jay Beagle Jersey It’s a clear fumble and recovery, and cornerback Aaron Colvin starts to run it back after he snatches the ball off the ground. But that was short-lived, because the whistle was blown and the refs had to count on instant replay to get the call right.
Elite Womens Bobby Hart Jersey
Getting a little closer to the end zone could have made a difference for the Jaguars. Jacksonville was trailing the Rams by 10, and it had to settle for a field goal after the fumble.

Jameis Winston Jersey status was unclear after his shoulder injury Sunday

Kaepernick is the reason Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, a Trump friend who recently proclaimed any Dallas players who took a knee would be benched, was verbally confronted Tuesday morning at the owners meeting hotel by two protestors who shouted, Take a knee against white supremacy! while being removed.
Limited Womens Filip Forsberg Jersey
Kaepernick is the reason roughly two dozen chanting supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement gathered outside that same hotel to protest his not being signed.

Their fortunes are quickly changing in the NFC North, as Case Keenum has been a solid fill-in QB for Sam Bradford, and it looks like Teddy Bridgewater might be an option soon. They are a strong favorite in the division after beating Green Bay and knocking out Aaron Rodgers.

It’s your team, Brett Hundley. The rest of the Packers, namely their defensive backs and running backs, need to raise their games so it’s not all on Hundley to be the impossible savior in place of Rodgers. Otherwise, remaining playoff hopes will be dashed quickly.

He continues to polarize NFL fans, as do the other players who have followed suit with their own demonstrations during the anthem.
Authentic Brandon Bollig Jersey
He remains a favorite target for President Donald Trump, who recently said he would have fired Kaepernick and any other son of a b鈥?who took a knee. The genuflecting also was cited by Vice President Mike Pence as the basis for his leaving an Indianapolis-San Francisco game when more than 20 40ers players kneeled.

Brett Hundley gets his first career start in place of Aaron Rodgers. If there’s such a thing as good timing on Rodgers breaking his collarbone, it’s fortunate that the Packers are playing the Saints’ defense. It will help Hundley. It will not help the Packers that their own defense is so shaky, and they’re facing Drew Brees and a team that dropped 52 on the Lions.

Aaron Rodgers Jersey injury update: Packers QB to undergo surgery

Monday didn’t bring any positive news for Packers fans.

After losing Aaron Rodgers to a broken right collarbone in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy announced Monday that the veteran quarterback will need surgery and likely be out for the season.

Kyler Fackrell Limited Jersey While stressing that the emphasis is on getting Rodgers better, McCarthy also made it clear that Brett Hundley is the team’s starting quarterback and Joe Callahan is the backup after being signed to the active roster from the practice squad earlier Monday.
Elite Kids Jared Cook Jersey
Seferian-Jenkins was headed to the end zone when he briefly bobbled the ball before falling into the pylon. He landed out of bounds with the ball securely in his grasp and the play was initially ruled a touchdown. Officials ruled following a replay review that Seferian-Jenkins fumbled the ball out of bounds for a touchback, negating the score and giving the ball to New England.

It was a head-scratching call and one Jets receiver Jermaine Kearse described as BS.

Controversy aside, Brady’s record as a starter is phenomenal. For Manning to reach 200 total wins, he had 92 losses. Favre’s teams lost 123 times in 322 games. Brady’s 212 total victories have come with just 63 losses. His Patriots are now 187-54 during the regular season with him at quarterback.

Even with the record, Brady was not impressed.

I wish we would have done better, but we won, he said after the game. With a game like this, 24-17, some good plays we made, a lot we left out there. We could have won 50-0 and it would be the same thing. It’s just about getting a win and finding a way to win each week.

The big question is what kind of player will Smart eventually be?

These outings, far more than the 14-pitch innings that Miller or Allen work in the regular season, are exhausting. They’re exhausting the day of, and they can be prohibitively exhausting for the next day or days. The pitch count watch is back!

We’ve seen some great, potentially series-changing plate appearances this postseason, which had the potential to matter not just in the moment but in the innings and days afterward. In Game 1 of the Yankees-Indians ALDS, New York DH Chase Headley faced Miller with one out and nobody on in the eighth inning. The Yankees trailed by four runs; they were 97 percent likely to lose, and even a home run by Headley wouldn’t change that figure much. But Headley worked Miller to a full count and fouled off six two-strike pitches, including five more or less perfect sliders:

What happened? With two other quarterbacks absent (Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn), Dorsey started three games for the 2008 Browns before getting injured himself. He was released by the Browns after the season by new head coach Eric Mangini.

He covets his experience and ballhandling abilities off the bench but has also said the Celtics must be flexible, and there could be matchups in which Smart makes sense with the first unit.

Is he the sort of player that can start opposite Kyrie Irving in Boston’s backcourt or will he live in that Sixth Man, energy-giving role?

Tilman Fertitta, who bought the Houston Rockets in September, says that nothing compares to owning a hometown team, especially walking into “this situation with James Harden and Chris Paul.”ravens_132
