  1. significant strides in his second season in Green Bay.Alexander believes he can play to a standard deserving of postseason recognition now that he has a year of experience under his belt.“I just want to have a good year Darnell Savage Green Bay Packers Jersey , for real. I see myself in the Pro Bowl. I see myself as an All-Pro,” Alexander said, via the team’s website.Alexander was the 18th overall pick of last year’s NFL Draft and appeared in 13 games with 11 starts for the Packers in 2018. Alexander racked up 66 tackles with one interception, a half sack and 11 passes defended. He was named to the PFWA’s All-Rookie team along with Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward.Alexander is setting his sights on the full league awards this season and pointed to the experience gained a season ago as being a key for him for the upcoming year.“I’ve got all the confidence in the world. Last year was a great starting point for me, but this year is going to be my dog year. I’m putting my stamp on that Kevin King Jersey ,” Alexander said. The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine gets underway in a little less than three weeks, and now we know the identities of the players who have been invited to participate. 338 players got invitations to the annual event in Indianapolis, broken down into 171 players on offense, 160 on defense, and seven special teamers.Predictably Darnell Savage Jersey 2019 , the two teams who played for the National Championship lead the way with the most players invited this year. Alabama and Clemson each have 11 players headed to Indy, with Ohio State next with ten and several schools sending nine. There are a few notable exceptions to this list, as the operators of the Combine have decided not to invite players with significant domestic violence incidents on their records. The most notable individual who will not be in Indy is Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons, thought by many to be a first-round talent.The Combine officially begins on Tuesday, February 26th Color Rush Darnell Savage Jersey , when the first group of players arrives in Indianapolis. Coaches and general managers are scheduled to hold their media availability on February 27th and 28th, while players will meet with the media from Thursday, February, 27th through Sunday, March 3rd. Finally Cheap Darnell Savage Jersey , the players will conduct their testing over four days, starting on Friday, March 1st and concluding on Monday, March 4th.2019 Combine Invitees — OffensePlayerPositionCollegePlayerPositionCollege2019 Combine Invitees — DefensePlayerPositionCollegePlayerPositionCollege
  2. kicking woes by adding a kicker who had his own struggles this summer.Kaare Vedvik was claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Cameron Smith Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , replacing Taylor Bertolet, who was waived.The Jets also claimed wide receiver Braxton Berrios from New England, defensive end John Franklin-Myers from the Los Angeles Rams and defensive back Bennett Jackson from Baltimore.To make room on its 53-man roster, New York waived wide receiver/punt returner Greg Dortch and safety Doug Middleton and released linebacker Albert McClellan.The 25-year-old Vedvik Minnesota Vikings Jerseys Stitched , a native of Norway, was acquired by Minnesota last month from Baltimore and missed three of four field goals while punting five times for an average of 45.2 yards for the Vikings. He was released by Minnesota on Saturday.Vedvik spent last season on the Ravens‘ injured list after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall. The Jets have had interest in him since last year and are intrigued by his dual-threat ability as a placekicker and punter.New York thought it had its kicking situation in place entering training camp, but Chandler Catanzaro abruptly retired after struggling in the first preseason game. The Jets brought in Bertolet, who spent last summer with them Cameron Smith Jersey nfl draft , but he had an up-and-down summer that included him missing two extra points in his first game. With a chance to solidify his spot in the preseason finale, Bertolet made two field goals to account for all the scoring in a 6-0 victory over Philadelphia — but missed three other tries.Berrios spent last season with the Patriots and could replace Dortch as the Jets’ primary punt returner.Franklin-Myers adds depth at New York’s edge rusher spot. He had a strip-sack of Tom Brady in the Super Bowl in February.Jackson is a versatile defensive back who can play both safety and cornerback.The Jets signed seven players to their practice squad, including former Australian rugby league star Valentine Holmes. As part of the NFL’s International Player Pathway program, the Jets and the other AFC East teams have an exemption for an international player so Holmes won’t count against the 10-man limit. Holmes tied for the team lead with five receptions in the preseason finale against the Eagles.Also signed to the practice squad were offensive tackle Calvin Anderson From China Cameron Smith Jersey , who made headlines with his unusual ability to solve a Rubik’s Cube behind his back; quarterback Luke Falk, who outplayed Davis Webb in the summer; linebacker Jamey Mosley, whose older brother C.J. is the Jets’ middle linebacker; offensive lineman Ben Braden; cornerback Kyron Brown; and wide receiver Jeff Smith. The Vikings offense had a tough time getting going on Sunday afternoon, but they came up with enough plays in the second half to pull away from the Jets.Kirk Cousins put the final major touches on the 37-17 win with a 34-yard touchdown to wide receiver Aldrick Robinson with just over five minutes left to play in the game. The score was Cousins’ second touchdown of the game and it was the team’s second touchdown of the fourth quarter after they managed two touchdowns over the first three quarters of the game.It looked for a moment like the Jets might be able to snatch momentum back when they took over near midfield after forcing a quick three-and-out on the previous Vikings drive. Cornerback Xavier Rhodes left the game with an ankle injury suffered while breaking up a deep pass to Robby Anderson and Jets quarterback Sam Darnold went in his replacement’s direction on the next play. Holton Hill picked off the pass and the Vikings were on their way to 4-2-1.Darnold would throw another interception later in the fourth and the whole day was a frustrating one for the rookie. He’d played well in two straight Jets wins Long Sleeve Cameron Smith Jersey , but was just 17-of-42 for 206 yards against a strong Vikings defense. There wasn’t much help on the ground and the team will be monitoring Bilal Powell‘s condition after he left the game with a neck injury.The Vikings got little on the ground in the first half as they built a 10-7 lead, but they pulled away behind Latavius Murray. Cousins was up and down, but Murray ran for a pair of touchdowns and finished the day with 67 yards on 14 carries as he continues to stand in for Dalvin Cook as the lead back.Adam Thielen caught the first touchdown of the day for Minnesota and wound up with 110 receiving yards to join Charlie Hennigan as the only players with seven straight games of at least 100 receiving yards to open a season. He’ll try to run it to eight while the Vikings try to push their winning streak to four games against the Saints on Sunday night.

I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. My apologies in advance, but due to the one hour weather delay from last night’s game against the Giants, today’s FC won’t have any anaylsis nor observations about the game (outside of some small quips regarding Sam Darnold). However, it’s pretty easy to sum things up for those who missed it. Sam Darnold and the 1st team players looked pretty good in what we managed to see from them. Everything after that however was complete garbage. The backup linemen were atrocious Womens Wayne Chrebet Jersey , the 2nd team defense was horrendous, and Chandler Catanzaro should be out of a job before the end of the day. There were some decent plays from players like Frankie Luvu, Greg Dortch, and Josh Bellamy, but outside of that it was what you would expect from a team with absolutely no depth whatsoever. I know the pre-season is to be taken with a grain of salt http://www.jetslockerroom.com/authentic-quincy-enunwa-jersey , but some of the concerns before the season started looked like glaring deficiencies once the starters sat on the bench. Hopefully the men atop the depth chart manage to stay healthy and can play a lot of snaps, because the team definitely needs them on the field this upcoming regular season.

The New York Jets were beaten by the Jacksonville Jaguars, 29 - 15, on Sunday in another loss by double digits. Another loss in which the Jets were never really in the game in the second half. Another loss in which the offensive line was offensive. Another loss in which the Adam Gase offense was completely ineffectual. Another loss in a numbing routine in which this team has lost 15 of their last 17 games, worst in the NFL over that span. The loss dropped the Jets’ record to 1-6 on the season.

  4. Shortly after Thursday night’s 35-14 victory over the visiting New York Giants Hjalte Froholdt Buffalo Bills Jersey , one of the best defensive players of his era took to social media to share his opinion about a member of the New England Patriots’ defensive backfield: Darrelle Revis, who helped the Patriots win a Super Bowl during his lone season with the club, called cornerback Stephon Gilmore “by far” the best cornerback in the league today.He certainly looked that part against the Giants. Gilmore, who is in his third season in New England since joining the team on a five-year, $65 million free agency contract in 2017, allowed just one catch on six targets all day long and made numerous big plays. All five of the incompletions thrown his way, after all, were actively broken up by him while two turned into interceptions: one by the 29-year-old himself, another by teammate John Simon.“He does it every day in practice and does it on Sundays,” said Patriots head coach Bill Belichick about Gilmore during his postgame press conference on Thursday. “He’s a very talented player and works extremely hard to prepare for the game Youth Devin McCourty Jerseys , study his opponents and study the passing game that our opponents are going to run. This is a good example here on a short week of how diligent he works and it paid off. He’s done a great job for us.”Belichick was not the only member of the Patriots organization to sing his praises about the 2018 first-team All-Pro following a standout performance against New York. Secondary and safeties coach Steve Belichick and fellow defensive back Devin McCourty also spoke highly about the soft-spoken Gilmore — with one aspect of their analysis standing out: his preparation in combination with his natural talent make for an elite mix.Week 6: Patriots vs GiantsPhoto by Maddie Meyer/Getty ImagesPatriots vs Giants recap: New England pulls away late, wins 35-14Instant analysis from Patriots’ 35-14 win over Giants6 winners and 4 losers from the Patriots’ 35-14 win over the GiantsInjuries force Patriots offense into uncharted territory against GiantsThe Scho Show Episode #27: A Week 6 Glorious Victory EditionWinning ugly is still winningPatriots vs. Giants: Fan Notes from the GamePatriots vs Giants snap counts: Injuries force New England to adapt on the fly“Steph really just loves the game, has a strong passion for the game and holds himself to a high, high, standard,” Steve Belichick said about Gilmore. “When he goes out there, he wants to be the best. He wants to perform at his best and he practices and prepares that way. I haven’t really compared him to anybody else, Steph’s his own guy; he’s his own player. He goes about his business his own way and it’s obviously been impressive so far.”“His drive and the attributes that he has — speed, size, quickness Devin McCourty Jerseys Stitched , strength, play strength — all that stuff,” the younger Belichick added. “Just a natural feel for the game, trust in the players he’s playing with that everybody will be where they’re supposed to be. Not just kind of playing out on his own but using the help he has when he gets it. Playing within the defense and just executing his role and his assignments.”So far this season, Gilmore has continued to play the shutdown role he held during the 2018 season — one during which he grew from one of the better cornerbacks in the league to arguably the number one player at his position, not just because of his essentially game-clinching interception in Super Bowl 53 against the Los Angeles Rams. Gilmore also was as steady a defender as any on one of the game’s best defenses.2019 is more of the same. While the former Buffalo Bills cornerback does surrender the occasional catch, he is able to limit yardage while still making plays for the defense. The game against the Giants was a perfect example of that: he gave up a 9-yard catch, yes, but was able to erase whoever he was on from the game outside of this lone reception. The ability to do that makes Gilmore a valuable member of the Patriots’ secondary.“He just works on his craft. If you follow him on Instagram, you’ll see he’s working on his craft in the offseason with Dre Bly. He does a ton of stuff — you know http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-john-hannah-jersey , practice field, he’s always out there repping, one-on-ones — like he’s doing all of that stuff to prepare himself,” said Devin McCourty about his teammate before digging a little deeper into his skill-set and what sets him apart from other cornerbacks in the league right now.“I think he has a great understanding of route recognition, what guys are running, where their splits are. It’s been awesome just to watch him, especially a guy that comes into the system and learns the system. From year-to-year, game-to-game, he’s just gotten better and better and he’s a big help to our defense,” McCourty said — basically echoing the thoughts Bill Belichick and his son have about the former first-round draft pick.“He does such a great job playing the ball and had some good breaks. That last play down the sideline was a really good finish where the receiver had the ball and he got it on the way down White Julian Edelman Jerseys , but he had some great pass breakups,” said the head coach on Thursday, before Steve Belichick shared a similar opinion during a conference call on Friday: “He does so many things well it’s hard to just pinpoint one thing. His preparation and obviously the skill set that he has, it’s a pretty good combination.”The man in question himself has a rather simple answer when speaking about the approach he and his teammates take: “We are just trying to play with good technique, play fast and let the players come to us and not force it,” Gilmore said in the locker room immediately after Thursday’s game against the Giants. “We are just trying to make plays for one another. It is not complicated, we just have to study more and play harder.”So far this season, Gilmore seems to have studied and played pretty hard already. And with the most difficult part of the schedule coming up for the Patriots, the team will need to have him continue doing just that. If the past 2.5 season are any indication, he will. FOXBOROUGH Julian Edelman Jerseys 2019 , Mass. (AP) — The Patriots will be without defensive lineman Deatrich Wise Jr. when New England hosts the Chargers in the divisional playoffs.Wise was limited all week with an ankle injury. His absence is a blow to the Patriots’ pass rush as they prepare to attack Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers. Wise appeared in all 16 games during the regular season and had 4½ sacks.Chargers running back Melvin Gordon and tight end Hunter Henry are both active for Sunday’s matchup. Gordon missed the first practice of the week resting the knee he injured in Los Angeles’ wild-card win over Baltimore.Henry is hoping to make an impact less than eight months after tearing his right ACL.Other inactives for New England are defensive linemen Keionta Davis and Ufomba Kamalu, tight end Stephen Anderson, offensive lineman James Ferentz and defensive backs Obi Melifonwu and Duke Dawson.Inactive for the Chargers are tight end Sean Culkin, running back Detrez Newsome, center Cole Toner, guard Forrest Lamp, receiver Dylan Cantrell, defensive end Anthony Lanier and defensive tackle T.Y.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Josh McCown is going from mentor to starter this week for the New York Jets.The 39-year-old quarterback will be under center Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in place of injured rookie Sam Darnold, who’s sidelined with a strained right foot.“I’m ready to rule him out as a starter for this week,” coach Todd Bowles said of Darnold on Thursday. “I don’t know if I’ll rule him out yet for the game.”That means Darnold still could potentially be the No. 2 quarterback on Sunday. If not, Davis Webb would be promoted from the practice squad to serve as McCown’s backup.Either way, the starting job is McCown’s — at least for this week.“I’m extremely comfortable with him,” Bowles said. “We talk all the time. He understands the game and the team, and we see things the same way. So I’m comfortable.”McCown has not taken a snap in a regular-season game this season as the Jets have focused on developing Darnold. The No. 3 overall pick won the job out of training camp, but was injured during New York’s 13-6 loss at Miami last Sunday.McCown was the Jets’ starter last season and had a career year before being sidelined the last three games with a broken left hand. Since the summer, McCown has spoken highly of Darnold and expressed excitement about being able to have a hand in the youngster’s development.Darnold has received lots of advice and tips from McCown on the sideline and practice field. Now, he’ll have no choice but to watch.“I say it all the time: That’s why we do this, to play,” McCown said Wednesday when Darnold’s injury was announced. “If that’s the case, you’re torn because your friend and a teammate, it means he can’t go. In that regard, I don’t wish that on anybody, but at the same time as a professional, as a backup quarterback you have to serve your team in that role and go in and play winning football.“That’s what’s fun, that’s what you look forward to and that’s why you play this game. And, we’ll go out and compete.”The Jets are ranked 29th in overall offense Womens Vosean Joseph Jersey , including 28th in the passing game. Some of the struggles can be attributed to the inexperience of Darnold, who has an NFL-leading 14 interceptions. During New York’s current three-game losing streak, the rookie has thrown two touchdown passes and seven INTs.So, some might consider the injury a blessing in disguise. It allows Darnold to take a breather and give McCown a chance to perhaps get the offense back on track.“Obviously, Josh has played a long time in this league,” wide receiver Jermaine Kearse said. “So throughout the weeks, he sees things a lot quicker. Just the mental aspects, he’s a lot further, just with his experience and being in the league. So, him just being able to see things a lot quicker, you know, the tempo kind of picked up a little bit.”Bowles made it clear, however, that this is no long-term solution. When Darnold is healthy, he’ll step right back into the starting role.“Yeah,” Bowles said, “he’s our quarterback.”Even if McCown is playing well when Darnold is fully healthy?“Sam is our quarterback,” Bowles answered.Bowles was then asked why that would automatically be the case with Darnold.“Because he’s our starter and he won the job,” the coach said. “I feel comfortable with him in there and I feel comfortable with Josh in there.”While Darnold is the easy target and he has shouldered the blame for the struggles on offense, the Jets have several other culprits. Center Spencer Long has dealt with a finger injury that has led to several wayward snaps out of the shotgun Authentic Vosean Joseph Jersey , disrupting the timing of plays. Wide receivers Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson have been dealing with ankle injuries, and there have been blown plays and dropped passes by several players.“Like I’ve said, we didn’t play well as an offense,” Bowles said. “He didn’t play well last game, but there’s a couple people that have had bad games here and there, so we go from there.”Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates has taken some heat, as well. The Jets are 18th in points with 198 and have scored just 17 touchdowns on offense. They also rank 30th in the league in first-down success (15.8 percent) and third-down conversions (30.8 percent).“We have to score more points and that’s on me,” Bates said. “I need to put our players in better positions to be successful, need to put our players in better position to score touchdowns and that’s my responsibility. We have to score points in this league to win football games.”NOTES: CB Trumaine Johnson was a full participant at practice for the first time in more than a month after being sidelined with an injured right quadriceps. He’s planning to play Sunday. “Man, it’s been a month and a couple days, so I’m definitely ready,” he said. “Just sitting out there supporting the team and my teammates is a different feeling, but I’m anxious to get back out there.” … Long (knee/finger), Anderson (ankle), Enunwa (ankle), TE Neal Sterling (concussion) and NT Steve McLendon (ankle) didn’t practice. … LG James Carpenter (shoulder) was limited.
  7. Joe Schobert Color Rush Jersey , and for Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen, seven days made a big difference.A week after the four quarterbacks taken in the top 10 in this year’s draft all lost, the young passers rebounded, made big plays and went 4-0 on Sunday.It wasn’t always pretty. Mayfield was the only one of the four to throw for more than 200 yards, but his Cleveland Browns still scored just 12 points in 70 minutes of football in their overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Mayfield, the No. 1 pick in the draft, went 25 of 43 for 342 yards with one touchdown and one interception.The other three completed 10 passes each.Darnold and Rosen completed less than 50 percent of their throws, although Darnold threw for three touchdowns in the New York Jets‘ 34-16 win over the Denver Broncos, including a 76-yarder to Robby Anderson.“Every single week https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Ricardo-Louis-Jersey , we can do that,” Darnold said. “I’m just really excited for next week.”Aside from the 1987 strike season with replacement players, there have only been three other seasons in which four or more rookie QBs have won in the same week — 1974, 2010 and 2012. It happened multiple times in 2012, including a week when five rookies were winners — Nick Foles, Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Brandon Weeden and Russell Wilson.Allen went 10 for 19 for 82 yards and an interception on Sunday as the Buffalo Bills outlasted the Tennessee Titans 13-12.Allen is now 2-2 as a starter, while Mayfield improved to 2-1 and Darnold to 2-3.And Rosen got his first win in his second career start since he took over for Sam Bradford, throwing a 75-yard touchdown pass to Christian Kirk on Arizona’s first play from scrimmage. He didn’t do much the rest of the way, going 10 of 25 for 170 yards David Njoku Jersey , but he avoided mistakes as the Cardinals beat the injury-riddled San Francisco 49ers 28-16.Rosen, the outspoken former UCLA player, was the last of the four rookies drafted, and he said the other teams made mistakes when they didn’t take him. He was also the last to make his debut this season. But the Cardinals’ starting job is his to lose now.Allen took over for the ineffective Nate Peterman in the Bills’ first game, a blowout loss to the Ravens, and has started ever since. Darnold opened the season as the starter but was on a three-game losing streak before the Jets came through on Sunday.Mayfield has been the splashiest thus far, bringing excitement to Cleveland that befits his status as the top pick. His only loss since taking over for Tyrod Taylor was a 45-42 overtime shootout at Oakland last week.“We have a team right now that is starting to believe in themselves, and rightfully so,” Mayfield said. “I take a lot of pride in the culture change and being positive, always moving forward and doing your job no matter what the situation is. That was big for us.” CLEVELAND (AP) — Freddie Kitchens hasn’t signed his contract as Browns coach. He’s working anyway.Kitchens has begun assembling his staff and will interview former Broncos coach Vance Joseph to be his defensive coordinator, a person familiar with the meeting told The Associated Press on Thursday.Joseph Larry Ogunjobi Color Rush Jersey , who was recently fired after going 11-21 in two seasons with Denver, will visit Cleveland on Saturday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Browns have not confirmed their hiring of Kitchens as their 17th full-time coach.Kitchens agreed to a deal Wednesday and his agent has been meeting with the team to work out final details.The Browns still haven’t announced Kitchens as their coach and the team has not confirmed any other coaching changes. Kitchens is not keeping defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who went 5-3 as Cleveland’s interim coach, a person familiar with the decision told AP.Kitchens, who has never been a head coach at any level, was hired in part because of his success as Cleveland’s coordinator in the season’s second half along with his strong relationship with quarterback Baker Mayfield.But because he’s an offensive coach, defensive coordinator is a vital hire and the 46-year-old Joseph could be a perfect fit for the Browns.Joseph spent 11 years coaching defensive backs with San Francisco, Houston and Cincinnati before serving as Miami’s defensive coordinator in 2016. He interviewed for Arizona’s coordinator job Thursday with new coach Kliff Kingsbury. Joseph has also interviewed for Cincinnati’s coaching vacancy.Former Indianapolis coach Chuck Pagano is also reportedly on Kitchens’ radar as a potential defensive coordinator.Kitchens is expected to retain offensive play-calling duties after his strong eight-game stint as Cleveland’s coordinator. There have been several names linked to Cleveland’s opening, including former Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Todd Monken and former Detroit coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.Monken interviewed for the New York Jets’ job, which went to Andrew Gase. Under Monken http://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Seibert-Jersey , Tampa Bay had the NFL’s top-ranked passing attack, averaging 320.3 yards per game, but was No. 29 in rushing.The 34-year-old Cooter spent three seasons with the Lions, but didn’t have his contract renewed after this season. Detroit went 6-10 while quarterback Matthew Stafford struggled.Cooter was a holdover from former coach Jim Caldwell’s staff, but his first season with Matt Patricia did not go well. The Lions dropped in scoring while Stafford had less than 4,000 yards passing for the first time since his injury-filled 2010 season.
  8. over the Atlanta Falcons J'Mon Moore Color Rush Jersey , giving Joe Philbin a win in his first game as the team’s interim head coach. It wasn’t a big win because the Packers are still in the thick of the playoff race, though they are still mathematically alive. Instead, it seems big for the confidence of the team, giving the players and fans belief that the problems the team had dealt with all season are indeed fixable.The Packers got big contributions from three reserves on the offensive line, however, as a trio of starters were made inactive just before game time. Although the line as a whole did allow four sacks, including three on third downs, they kept Aaron Rodgers clean in the second half and helped the team pick up nearly 140 rushing yards on the day.Here’s a look at the playing time from Sunday’s 34-20 Packers victory.OFFENSE (65 plays)QuarterbacksAaron Rodgers 64, DeShone Kizer 1Rodgers gave way to Kizer for a kneel-down on the final snap of the game. Other than that, Rodgers had a moderately efficient day, completing just under two-thirds of his passes by going 21-for-32 (65.6%). His 6.13 yards per attempt number won’t impress, but the important factor was that he kept the chains moving on third downs.Rodgers completed five of six pass attempts on third downs for four conversions and added a pair of scrambles for first downs as well. The Packers did allow three third-down sacks in the first half, but the overall 7-for-13 conversion rate was a huge step forward.We also must mention Rodgers setting the new record for pass attempts without an interception, as he has still thrown just one all year. Still, there were two passes that he could have been picked off on during Sunday’s game, including one that hit Deion Jones in the hands a few throws before he did indeed set the record. But it’s still fun to see one of the NFL’s all-time best at avoiding turnovers get a record like this, so congrats to Rodgers on setting the new mark!Running BacksAaron Jones 42, Jamaal Williams 24, Dan Vitale 2Williams started the game for the Packers, which seemed bizarre and inexplicable at the time. However, it may have had something to do with the pace of the opening drive, as the team seems to prefer him to Jones when in no-huddle or quick passing situations. Jones came on and dominated the snap count the rest of the way, however, and he ended up out-touching Williams 20 to 4.Jones was back over 4.5 yards per carry in this game, with 17 totes for 78 yards and a score. He added three receptions for 28 yards. Williams, meanwhile, carried the ball four times for 17 yards.Wide ReceiversDavante Adams 56, Randall Cobb 44, Equanimeous St. Brown 34, Marquez Valdes-Scantling 30, Jake Kumerow 6Adams had another 11 targets, catching seven balls for 81 yards and a touchdown. He should have had another 30-yard reception, but it was wiped out by a pass interference call on Jimmy Graham on a pick play. St. Brown seems to be slowly catching up to MVS, as the two have been about even on snaps and targets in recent weeks. Cobb returned to relevance this week, thanks in large part to his 24-yard touchdown reception on the play that gave Rodgers the record.Tight EndsJimmy Graham 47, Lance Kendricks 17, Marcedes Lewis 16, Robert Tonyan 7Graham caught just two passes for 13 yards in this game https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Nick-Perry-Jersey , though one did move the chains on third down. The rest of the tight ends were swapped in and out largely in blocking situations, as none had even a single target.Offensive LinemenLucas Patrick 65, Jason Spriggs 65, Corey Linsley 65, David Bakhtiari 64, Justin McCray 62, Alex Light 3, Adam Pankey 1With three starters out, Patrick, Spriggs, and McCray came on to start and provided nearly full games. As mentioned earlier, the group did allow three sacks on third downs in the first half, two of which led to field goals. However, the second half was much better, as they did not allow a single sack after halftime.McCray missed three snaps early on for a minor issue, but returned to play the remainder of the game. Patrick, meanwhile, endeared himself to his quarterback by sticking up for him after a borderline hit on a scramble by defensive back Brian Poole. Patrick got into a scrum with several Falcons defenders and won some major points for his protective instincts.DEFENSE (71 plays)Defensive LinemenDean Lowry 56, Kenny Clark 51, Tyler Lancaster 22, Montravius Adams 12Interestingly, Clark did not show up on the stat sheet in the game despite playing about 70 percent of the team’s snaps. However, this may have been by design by the Falcons; instead, Lowry and Lancaster picked up much of the tackles among this group with three apiece. Lancaster had one big TFL on a swing pass, and Lowry had a hit on quarterback Matt Ryan.Outside LinebackersKyler Fackrell 57, Clay Matthews 55, Reggie Gilbert 30Matthews had one of the Packers’ two sacks of Ryan on the day, with the second going down as a “team sack” in the stat sheet. He also had a second tackle for loss and a second hit on Ryan in a fairly solid performance. Fackrell also had a TFL and a hit on Ryan, with three total tackles, while Gilbert had just one solo stop.Inside LinebackersBlake Martinez 71, Antonio Morrison 7It’s a refrain at this point; Martinez had double-digit tackles with 12 total. The Packers were able to use safety Josh Jones as a Nitro linebacker for much of this game, however, which we’ll get to shortly.We at APC still hope to see more of rookie Oren Burks down the stretch, however. These last few games could and should be good opportunities for developmental snaps for him.SafetiesTramon Williams 71, Kentrell Brice 65, Josh Jones 63, Eddie Pleasant 6Brice’s return allowed the team to largely keep Jones down in the box at Nitro linebacker, where he picked up five solo tackles and an assist. Brice had three and one for four total tackles Davante Adams Jersey , while Williams was held off the stat sheet despite not missing a snap.The fact that Brice was able to play, however, did really open up the possibilities for Mike Pettine, at least in terms of how best to use Jones. It was nice to see him flying around closer to the line of scrimmage once again.CornerbacksJaire Alexander 71, Tony Brown 59, Josh Jackson 56, Bashaud Breeland 23, Will Redmond 5While Williams and Brice primarily manned the safety position, the Packers’ corner rotation was strange early on. Breeland was arguably one of the stars of the game, with a pick-six and a fumble recovery, but he played fewer than a third of the game’s snaps. This reduced workload may be an effort to keep his snaps in check as he continues to work through a groin injury, however.Meanwhile, Alexander spent essentially the entire game matched up on Julio Jones one-on-one. He finished the day with ten solo tackles, one for loss, and a pass breakup — though he should have had two, if the Packers’ first replay review had been changed from a catch to an incompletion. Brown added five total tackles while Jackson had two solo stops, two pass breakups, and another defensive holding penalty. It’s been overlooked in the slew of criticism the officials have received for other blown calls, but a key penalty that was called on the Lions early in Monday night’s game was later not called on the Packers.With the Lions leading 13-0 in the second quarter, the Packers faced fourth-and-5 and sent their field goal team on the field. The Lions, however, had 12 players on the field as the Packers lined up, and the officials immediately blew the whistle, giving the Packers five yards and a first down.That was the right call: Under NFL rules, lining up with more than 11 players in the defensive formation is a penalty. The officials are supposed to shut down the play before the snap, and that’s what they did. It turned out to be incredibly costly for the Lions, as the Packers scored a touchdown two plays later.But on the very next possession, the Packers committed the exact same penalty. Only it should have been even more obvious to the officials, because the Packers, in their confusion to make a defensive substitution while the Lions were in no-huddle, actually lined up 13 players on defense. Instead of shutting the play down and giving the Lions five yards, the officials allowed the Packers to call timeout to get the right personnel on the field.That turned out to be incredibly costly for the Lions as well: Matthew Stafford was sacked after the Packers got the right personnel on the field following the timeout, and the Lions had to punt.The officiating on Monday night was inexcusable, and most of the mistakes went against the Lions. When a lot of officiating mistakes go against you and you lose by one point, it’s hard to come to any conclusion other than that you got robbed.
  9. Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack kept his eyes down the field and his legs churning Sunday.His teammates took the cue.The offensive line created enough space for Mack to run for a career-high 139 yards and two scores https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Jeremiah-George-Jersey , an improving defense smothered the league’s hottest offense and the Colts rolled past Dallas 23-0 to stay in the AFC playoff hunt.“When I saw those holes, I was like ‘Yeah, it might be a good day,'” Mack said. “Holes like that don’t come often.”If Mack continues to exploit the creases, there’s no telling what the Colts (8-6) could do if they earn a postseason trip.Since losing five of their first six, Indy has won seven of eight. Andrew Luck continues to play the best football of his career and Mack appears ready to thrive with starting center Ryan Kelly back in the lineup.The Colts’ vastly improved defense has allowed 27 points over the past three weeks including two games against division victory over Cincinnati on Oct. 19, 2004.“Against that team, with the guys they have, it’s tough Denico Autry Jersey ,” coach Frank Reich said. “They have some of the best (offensive) guys in the NFL.”While the Colts (8-6) celebrated, Dallas was dismayed.The Cowboys (8-6) came out flat on offense, wore down on defense and failed to clinch the NFC East title as a five-game winning streak ended.Ezekiel Elliott ran 18 times for 87 yards and caught seven passes for 41 yards. Amari Cooper had four catches for 32 yards and Dak Prescott was 24 of 39 for 206 yards with one interception.But Mack set the tone with a physical 19-yard run on his first carry, ran 22 times and matched his career best for scoring runs — all against the league’s No. 3 run defense.The result: Dallas gave up its first 100-yard game since Week 9 and endured its first shutout since losing 12-0 to the Patriots on Nov. 16, 2003.“Obviously, we didn’t play well enough in any phase of our game to win,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “We can’t allow them to run the ball the way they want to run it.”That wasn’t the only problem.The Colts repeatedly took advantage of Cowboys’ miscues.When Denico Autry blocked a Dallas field-goal attempt , Mack capitalized with a 1-yard TD plunge. Luck cashed in on a defensive holding call against Anthony Brown on third down to set up Adam Vinatieri for a 43-yard field goal to make it 10-0 at the half.Mack opened the second half with a 6-yard scoring run and Vinatieri sealed it with two more field goals.Defensively, the Colts made big play after big play, too.Elliott lost 2 yards and the ball on fourth-and-1 from the Colts 3, Dallas was knocked out of field-goal range on Tyquan Lewis‘ sack on the Cowboys’ final chance in the first half Nyheim Hines Color Rush Jersey , Pierre Desir and Darius Leonard each ended drives by breaking up passes in the second half and George Odum capped it with a late interception.Mack took care of the rest.“He ran well, he does all the little things really, really well,” Luck said.STAT PACKCowboys: Dallas lost its first game in the series since 2002 and finished with no sacks and only three quarterback hits. … The Cowboys finished with 292 yards, their lowest total since acquiring Cooper in a trade.Colts: Luck was 16 of 27 for 192 yards while T.Y. Hilton caught five passes for 85 yards despite not practicing all week because of an ankle injury. … Lewis had two of the Colts three sacks.INJURY REPORTCowboys: Right guard Zack Martin missed the first game of his career with an injured left knee. Dallas improvised by moving left guard Connor Williams to right guard and inserting Xavier Su’a-Filo at right guard. But Su’a-Filo left early in the second quarter with an eye injury and did not return.Colts: Veteran backup Joe Haeg replaced right guard Mark Glowinski (ankle) in the starting lineup and defensive tackle Al Woods left in the third quarter with an injured leg and did not return.THEY SAID ITCowboys: “The field goal just before halftime seemed to demoralize our team,” team owner Jerry Jones said.Colts: “Zeke doesn’t get stopped too much in that situation,” Reich said of the goal-line stand. “I don’t know what the numbers are but it was a huge play.”UP NEXTCowboys: Get a second chance to clinch the division title next Sunday when they host Tampa Bay.Colts: Close out their home schedule next weekend when Eli Manning and the New York Giants return to Lucas Oil Stadium for the first time since winning the Super Bowl after the 2011 season. Jacoby Brissett met the media on Monday for the first time since Andrew Luck‘s retirement pushed him into the starting quarterback job for the Colts.Brissett said he was “shocked” when Luck told him that he was stepping away from football. Brissett didn’t delve into the contents of that conversation, but said Luck was “actually smiling when he told me” and that seeing Luck at peace was all that really mattered when it came to his reaction to the news.He added that he wished Luck could have announced his retirement as planned rather than have it come out during Saturday night’s game and that it’s been a “roller coaster of emotions” as Luck’s absence has started to sink in.“The main thing is not being able to see Andrew every other day,” Brissett said.Brissett was asked at one point what he needs to be going forward now that his role has changed. Brissett answered by saying “Jacoby Brissett” and many will be watching to see if that’s the right answer to keep the Colts moving forward in 2019.

Unless he is. Despite suggestions in March that he was finished with what became appointment radio (Hey, when the quarterback is willing to toss teammates under the bus live, you listen), he has apparently had a change of heart. The Seahawks ended receiver D.K. Metcalf’s unexpected (by some) slide by trading up and making him the last pick in round two. Eight days later, the Seahawks are very happy with what they’ve gotten in Metcalf.“I mean, he’s big and he’s fast,” coach Pete Carroll said Friday after Metcalf’s debut at rookie minicamp. “[H]is catching range was exhibited today for a start. And you know, we’ve got to figure it out, figure out where it is http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Cody-Barton-Jersey , maybe even more unique than we thought coming in. So we just develop it as we go. But big and really fast and the catching range was really obvious today.”Carroll also has notice that Metcalf has great feet, despite his size.“You know, sometimes the bigger guys, the feet just don’t move as quick,” Carroll said. “His feet were really, really lightning quick and it showed it out here today already. So that means that the potential is there to make him an excellent releaser. He’s already going to be really strong and using his hands, getting off the ball, but to have that combination, when we get a chance to tie it all together, it should be a really good package.Carroll hasn’t ruled out playing Metcalf inside, even though he’s generally regarded as an outside receiver.“There’ll be times to do that,” Carroll said. “Our guys D.K. Metcalf Jersey , we are multiple scheme with those guys and move them around for plays and different situations and stuff. We’ll see and learn that. We have not seen him [on the insider] at all, you know, coming up to this point and we’re going to start him where we know that he can fit right now. But yeah, we’re wired up and everything and we’ll see. We’ll certainly want to take advantage of it.”However it plays out, Carroll knows it’s time for Metcalf to prove what he can do.“You know, there’s never been a guy that ran any faster that was that big and strong at the Combine,” Carroll said. “So he’s got all those things behind him. Now he’s got to go fight and figure out how to play football.”If he figures it out, plenty of teams will regret letting Metcalf drop as far as he did.
  11. with a groin injury Cody Ford Jersey Boys , so he’ll be joining another one of the team’s free agent acquisitions on the sideline for the time being.Center Mitch Morse is in the concussion protocol after suffering the fourth documented concussion of his pro career in the team’s first practice of training camp. Gaines also has a lengthy injury history, which the Bills know well after having him on the team for the 2017 season.General Manager Brandon Beane said that the team was aware of those histories, but felt they “would be fine and could play.” Beane also said that it’s hard to find players on the free agent market without some history of injuries.“When you get guys that play in the league, rarely are you going to get a guy that comes in and has never had an injury. So you have to pick and choose,” Beane said, via NewYorkUpstate.com. “This is a physical game. We understand the guys that have a total clean history versus the guys that have had some things. Rarely are you going to find a top talented player that has no dings, that’s a good citizen and that fits our culture that get away [from teams]. [Those players] get resigned.”Beane said that past injuries are sometimes “a predictor of it happening and sometimes it’s not.” Unfortunately for the Bills, it looks like history is repeating itself for two of the players they brought in this offseason. Week 6 of college football marks rivalry week Infant Cody Ford Jersey , and with that comes several key match-ups involving teams on the rise. No. 5 LSU travels to take on the Florida Gators, who began the season unranked but are now 22. No. 7 Oklahoma looks to stay unbeaten against newly competitive Texas. Then tonight, Virginia Tech will attempt to upset No. 6 Notre Dame.As always, let’s talk about the games, leave questions on prospects, and enjoy the weekend!Keep your eyes onRT Yosuah Nijman (Virginia Tech)Virginia Tech prospects have been known for their overwhelming athletic tools in recent years (See: Tremaine Edmunds) and Nijman is no different. His kick slide is fast enough to deal with most pass rushers, but he does tend to drop his head into his opponent, sacrificing leverage. Notre Dame has arguably the fiercest pass rush in the nation Youth Andre Reed Jersey , and also likes to bring additional pressure. Nijman will need to prove that he’s learned much since being beat several times by Old Dominion pass rusher Oshane Ximines earlier in the year.Other prospects to watchLB David Long (West Virginia)Long is an undersized but ultra-productive SAM linebacker for the Mountaineers. He leads his team with 43 tackles (nine for a loss) to go with two sacks and a forced fumble. This week, the junior will be facing down the best running back in the Big-12, Kansas’ freshman phenom Pooka Williams. Williams is known for his speed, so scouts will want to see if Long has the athleticism or anticipatory skills to keep up.WR Kelvin Harmon (NC State)NC State’s leading receiver, Kelvin Harmon is one of the more underrated wide receiver prospects in the nation. More well-rounded than truly dynamic, Harmon sports decent size at 6’3”, good-enough speed, and very solid hands. The junior wideout often plays the role of quarterback Ryan Finley’s safety valve. His work this Saturday against a highly regarded Boston College secondary will be must-watch TV.ER Jachai Polite (Florida)Another undersized defender Ed Oliver Buffalo Bills Jersey , Polite has had a coming-out party this year. With six tackles-for-loss and four sacks, he’s already eclipsed his totals from 2017. Ultra-quick and fluid, Polite’s relentlessness to finish plays is probably his best quality. LSU has been shuffling their offensive line around recently due to injuries, which could provide a chance for Polite to shine on Saturday. S Andrew Wingard (Wyoming)Wingard excels against the run and using his long arms to bring down ball carriers. However, he doesn’t appear to be the most instinctual or fluid when defending the pass on the back-end of the defense. This week’s game against Hawaii, who is among the most unique and prolific passing offenses in the league, should provide a chance for Wingard to prove those assumptions incorrect.DT Raekwon Davis (Alabama)Anyone who’s watched Alabama this year knows that both of their interior defensive linemen, Davis and Isaiah Buggs Buffalo Bills Jersey 2019 , are likely to be high draft picks. So far though, Buggs has been the more productive of the two. Davis has yet to record a sack and only has one tackle-for-loss. This week, against an Arkansas team that features talented guard Hjalte Froholdt, Davis needs to prove that he deserves the first-round hype he garnered early in the off-season.RB Jacques Patrick (Florida State)Now is the time for Patrick to build off of last season’s successes. Draft analysts spent the off-season singing his praises, but at this point in the college football season he has become one of the more disappointing prospects in the nation. Through five games this season, he only has 136 rushing yards. Last year, Patrick hit holes decisively and was a load to bring down. He’ll need to bring those attributes in equal measure this Saturday against Miami’s strong defensive front. If he doesn’t, his stock will continue to plummet.Game of the WeekNo. 19 Texas vs No. 7 OklahomaSaturday Color Rush Ed Oliver Jersey , 12:00 p.m. ESTFoxThis particular rivalry has been a mismatch in favor of the Sooners in recent years, but this year could be different. Texas’s defense is their strength, yet the offense has most of their NFL prospects—with wide receivers Lil’Jordan Humphrey and big Collin Johnson among the best at their position in the nation. Offensive tackle Calvin Anderson has also played a large part in the Longhorns’ improved offense. Meanwhile, Oklahoma brings along its own offensive stars, in the form of speedy wideout Marquise Brown, offensive tackle Bobby Evans and guards Ben Powers and Dru Samia. Fireworks are always expected when these two teams collide.
  12. traded for each other.The Giants are trading pass rusher Olivier Vernon to the Browns for guard Kevin Zeitler Authentic Daniel Jones Jersey , according to multiple reports. The two teams are also swapping mid-round picks, with the Browns getting a better pick in the exchange.Trades cannot become official until the new league year starts on Wednesday, but teams can agree to trades now, and the Browns and Giants have.Vernon and Zeitler are both good players but both expensive. Vernon has a base salary of $15.25 million this season, while Zeitler’s salary is $10 million. There was talk that both players could be released if they weren’t traded because their teams didn’t want to pay them.But the Browns think Vernon is worth the money and the Giants think Zeitler is worth the money. Perhaps this trade will be a win-win for two teams that need more wins on the field. Quarterback. No one wants to talk about the New York Giants and the quarterback position, do they? Because that’s where we are in our series of position-by-position reviews of the Giants’ 2018 season.We’re at the point where we talk about Eli Manning. For the umpteenth time. Can we say anything new about Manning? Or about his 2018 season? Probably not. Let’s do this, anyway.2018 reviewHere are some of the numbers:A career-best 66.0 percent completion rate. Some of them were actually good throws. Some of them were meaningless check downs where he turned down deeper throws.Twenty-one touchdown passes. Some actually meant something. Some came in garbage time.A total of 4,299 passing yards, fourth-highest of his career. Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. didn’t run for all of those yards.A career-low 1.9 percent interception rate. Some of you will think that’s good. Some of you will think it’s because all he did was check the ball down.Manning was sacked a career-worst 47 times. Some of them were probably his fault. Most of them weren’t.A passer rating of 92.4 and a QBR of 51.2. Both his best numbers since 2015. But Daniel Jones Jersey Boys , the Giants missed the playoffs. Again.I could list more, both good and bad. That, though, is kind of pointless. You will see the numbers, just like everything else, with Manning, through whatever lens you want to see them. He’s good. He’s bad. He can still play well. He stinks. He should be the Giants’ quarterback in 2019. He should have been kicked to the curb years ago. You already know what you think. You aren’t changing your mind. So, let’s move on.Did we learn anything about the guys behind Manning?We learned that Alex Tanney is a really nice guy who it seemed Giants fans didn’t really ever want to see play. He never did.We learned that Kyle Lauletta needs a better alarm clock, and that he really should take an Uber to work. We really didn’t learn anything about what kind of quarterback he could be. An 0-for-5 in one quarter of play really isn’t enough to go on.Let’s get to the really important stuff. What happens in 2019 and beyond for the Giants at quarterback?2019 look ahead2018 Position ReviewsPosition review: Offensive line remains a work in progress for GiantsAt wide receiver Color Rush George Asafo-Adjei Jersey , Odell Beckham’s comeback, search for a No. 3 were top Giants’ storiesAt tight end, using Evan Engram better a key for GiantsRunning back review: Can Giants avoid turning Saquon Barkley into Barry Sanders?Giants position review: Quarterback — a future with or without Eli Manning?Position review: Giants have decisions to make with EDGE rushersGiants position review: Special teams were a bright spotPosition review: Giants D-line talent is promising, but thinPosition Review: Giants cornerbacks at a crossroadLet’s talk about options. The Giants have a lot of them.Stick with ManningCoach Pat Shurmur has said he “absolutely” wants Manning back next season.“I think everybody thinks I’m nuts, but I’ve seen the good in Eli and I believe in the good, especially in the quarterback position,” Shurmur said. “I believe everybody around him has to do their job as well. I certainly hear things, but I believe in him.”GM Dave Gettleman said that Manning “can make the NFL throws ... He’s still got it,’ but still did not guarantee Manning would be the first Giants player to get a 16th season with the franchise.“I’m committed to making the best decision in the interest of the New York Football Giants. That’s what I’m committed to do Youth George Asafo-Adjei Jersey ,” Gettleman said at his season-ending press conference. “my commitment is to make this team the best team it can be and if that happens to have Eli playing quarterback, it does.”Manning still has a contract for next season, with a $23 million cap hit. The Giants can save $17 million by cutting him. If the Giants want to justify keeping Manning in place for another season, they can. The can point to his overall statistics, and they can point to the team’s improved offensive play the second half of the season and say they don’t want to disrupt that. The Giants averaged 23.1 points per game, up from 15.4 the previous season. The Giants averaged 27.3 points per game over their final eight games. That’s progress, and if the Giants want to hang their hat on it they can.If the Giants want to justify moving on from Manning, they can. The Giants have missed the playoffs six of seven years and haven’t won a playoff game since winning the 2011 Super Bowl. Manning is 38. He doesn’t have the mobility of the younger generation of quarterbacks entering the league. Gettleman did say that the Giants can’t simply keep doing the same thing and expecting different results. If they want to say it’s time to stop trying to make it work with Manning and try something else — pretty much anything else — that is understandable.The veteran options Nick Foles — The Philadelphia Eagles’ “backup” is the apple of many eyes. Foles to the Giants, though Womens George Asafo-Adjei Jersey , is probably not realistic.Joe Flacco — Throw Flacco’s name into the mix and the reaction is overwhelmingly negative. As a placeholder should Manning retire, though, Flacco is probably a more realistic option than Foles.Teddy Bridgewater — If the New Orleans Saints don’t keep him, many Giants fans want him. But, what are the Saints telling us about Bridgewater if they let him get away.Others — Toss in just about name you want. Tyrod Taylor. Ryan Fitzpatrick. Whoever. Me? I would keep an eye on young guys like Kyle Sloter (Minnesota Vikings) who really don’t have a path to playing time with their current teams. Perhaps even as potential backups if Manning stays.Daniel JonesPhoto by Gregory Shamus/Getty ImagesThe 2019 NFL DraftYou know the names already, and you probably have your favorite. The guys who are getting first-round consideration are:Dwayne Haskins [Ohio State writer says Dwayne Haskins is “the real deal” | Mock draft roundup: Dwayne Haskins most popular pick for New York Giants]Kyler Murray [Giants news, 1/10: Could Kyler Murray impact Giants’ QB situation?]Daniel JonesHaskins is QB1 in this class, per most evaluator. Murray is the wild card. Will he declare? Will he stay with baseball, as he is already signed with the Oakland A’s? What do NFL teams really think of him? Jones might be the dark horse. Evaluators seem to believe he will go in the first round Authentic George Asafo-Adjei Jersey , and his exposure at Duke to quarterback guru David Cutcliffe works in his favor.Even if the Giants draft one of these guys it would seem likely they would need a veteran placeholder. Which, again, might lead back to Manning.
  13. The New England Patriots play tomorrow Authentic Jarrett Stidham Jersey , but there are plenty of exciting games taking place this week! Here’s the schedule for Sunday and the final outcomes the Patriots will be rooting for.9:30 AM ETEagles at Jaguars: The Patriots want the Eagles to win because they literally want every AFC team to lose this week. Except the Browns.1:00 PM ETJets at Bears: The Patriots want the Bears to win. The Patriots have the Bears 2019 second round draft pick, but the AFC East comes first.Browns at Steelers: The Patriots want the Browns to upset the Steelers to further disrupt the AFC North.Broncos at Chiefs: The Patriots want the Broncos to win to hand the Chiefs their second loss of the year. Don’t hold your breath.Ravens at Panthers: The Patriots want the Panthers to win to further disrupt the AFC North. Buccaneers at Bengals: The Patriots want the Buccaneers to win to further disrupt the AFC North.Seahawks at Lions: The Patriots want the Lions to win because of strength of schedule, and because it’s adorable to see Matt Patricia smile. The Patriots also have the Lions 2019 third round pick, so it’s a matter of tiebreakers or future draft value. The third round is such a toss-up, that I’d lean towards the tiebreakers.Washington at Giants: This game doesn’t matter to the Patriots.4:05 PM ETColts at Raiders: The Patriots want the Colts to win for the sake of strength of schedule and (hopefully) eventual strength of victory.4:25 PM ETPackers at Rams: This game doesn’t matter to the Patriots, but it should be a lot of fun.49ers at Cardinals: This game doesn’t matter to the Patriots and it probably won’t be fun.8:20 PM ETSaints at Vikings: This game should also be a lot of fun, even if it doesn’t matter to the Patriots. WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors cannot use secretly recorded video allegedly showing New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft engaging in massage parlor sex, a judge ruled Monday Jarrett Stidham Jersey Boys , striking a serious blow to their case against him and others charged with soliciting prostitutes at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa.In his 10-page ruling, Judge Leonard Hanser wrote that Jupiter police detectives and the judge who issued the search warrant allowing the secret installation of cameras at the spa did not do enough to minimize the invasion of privacy of customers who only received legal massages. Hanser also ruled that detectives cannot testify about what they saw on the video or when they stopped Kraft.If upheld on appeal, Hanser’s ruling could lead to prosecutors dropping the second-degree misdemeanor cases against Kraft and other men charged with paying for sex at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. Kraft, 77, has pleaded not guilty but issued a public apology.“The fact that some totally innocent women and men had their entire lawful time spent in a massage room fully recorded and viewed intermittently by a detective-monitor is unacceptable,” Hanser wrote. He said the judge should have given the officers explicit instruction for how to monitor the video.Kraft’s attorneys declined comment. Palm Beach County State Attorney spokesman Mike Edmondson said prosecutors were still reviewing the ruling but would appeal if they found a legal basis. The ruling is similar to one in a neighboring county, where a judge also suppressed video of men allegedly paying for massage parlor sex.Kraft’s attorneys argued during a recent hearing aimed at throwing out the recordings that Florida law allowing audio wiretaps says they can only be used for serious felonies such as murder or kidnapping, not lesser offenses such as prostitution. They argued video, which is not specifically covered under Florida law Infant Jarrett Stidham Jersey , should have a higher threshold.Hanser agreed, writing “video surveillance is even more invasive of privacy, just as a strip search is more invasive than a pat down search.”Jupiter was part of a multicounty investigation of massage parlor prostitution and possible human trafficking that resulted in the arrests of about 300 men and the closure of 10 spas stretching 130 miles (210 kilometers) from Palm Beach to Orlando. The spa owners and some employees have been charged with felonies. Prosecutors have conceded they found no evidence of human trafficking at the Jupiter spa and no one has been charged with it elsewhere. Neither Kraft nor the 24 other men charged in the county were specifically targeted.David S. Weinstein, a Miami-based defense attorney and former prosecutor, said Hanser’s ruling will be followed by the judges overseeing the misdemeanor cases of the other men, but not necessarily the judge overseeing the women’s felony cases. He said the good news for prosecutors is that Hanser did find they police had probable cause to get the warrant, which could be key if the rest of his order is overturned. Prosecutors in their appeal will likely argue that Hanser “overreached…by suppressing the observations of the officers and by excluding the results of the car stops,” Weinstein said. “They will also argue that despite no explicit instructions, the officers did in fact minimize their observations in the context of the ongoing investigation.” He expects the case will reach the Florida Supreme Court.Hanser had already ruled that the Kraft videos cannot be released publicly until his trial is underway or the case is settled or dismissed.NFL officials have said they are watching the case Jarrett Stidham Jersey Draft , but have not disciplined Kraft.According to police records, Kraft, a widower worth $6 billion, was chauffeured to the Orchids of Asia spa on the evening of Jan. 19, where officers secretly recorded him engaging in a sex act with two women and then handing over an undetermined amount of cash.Investigators said Kraft returned 17 hours later and was again videotaped engaging in sex acts with a woman before paying with a $100 bill and another bill, police said. On Monday, prosecutors consolidated the two cases into one charge.Hours later, Kraft was in Kansas City for the AFC Championship game, where his Patriots defeated the Chiefs. His team then won the Super Bowl in Atlanta Jarrett Stidham NFL Jersey , the Patriots’ sixth NFL championship under his ownership.Prosecutors offered to drop the original charges if Kraft entered a diversion program for first-time offenders, as some others charged have. That would include an admission he would be found guilty if the case went to trial, a $5,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and attendance in a class on the dangers of prostitution and its connection to human trafficking. Prosecutors have said the fine and community service are required by law and are not negotiable.Hanser has ordered Kraft to appear in court for a May 21 pretrial hearing. It is unclear how Monday’s ruling will affect that hearing.
  14. night knowing Indianapolis was missing a bunch of defensive backs to injuries and quite confident Patrick Mahomes could pick apart the Colts' backups.Turned out it was Indianapolis that dominated a bunch of Kansas City second-stringers.One by one Doug Middleton Jerseys 2019 , the Chiefs lost crucial players on both sides of the ball, and the Colts took advantage of their flailing backups. The result was a 19-13 victory not only ended Kansas City's incredible run of scoring at least 26 points in 22 straight games, but also proved Mahomes and Co. are fallible."We got beat in about every phase you can get beat this evening," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.It wasn't entirely their fault.Yes, the Chiefs were flagged 11 times for 125 yards. Yes, they lost a fumble when LeSean McCoy had the ball poked loose deep in Indianapolis territory. Yes, their defensive backs kept getting beat by the fleet of Colts wide receivers, resulting in big completions or yet more penalties.But those miscues often came with a bunch of backups on the field.Wide receiver Sammy Watkins was the first to leave the game, unable to press through a hamstring injury that left him questionable to play at all. He was joined on the sideline later by Byron Pringle, who caught six passes for 103 yards and a score before ending up in the concussion protocol.Meanwhile, top wide receiver Tyreek Hill took part in pregame warmups following his first week of practice since Week 1. But his collarbone injury is still healing and Hill was again inactive."You don't ever know if a man will go down so you got to know the playbook and be ready to step up," Pringle said. "It's time to show what you've been working hard for all week."Up front, the Chiefs already were missing left tackle Eric Fisher, who underwent core muscle surgery and isn't expected back for several more weeks. Then they lost left guard Andrew Wylie to an ankle injury, forcing them to use two ineffective backups — Cam Erving at tackle and Ryan Hunter at guard."We have the best quarterback in the world, the best receivers, all that stuff," Chiefs right tackle Mitchell Schwartz said. "It was just a matter of guys are getting there too soon."Erving in particular had a miserable night. He was dominated by the Colts defensive front, flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for a hit out of bounds White Brandon Copeland Jerseys , and once was pushed so far back in the pocket that he stepped on Mahomes' left ankle, leaving the league MVP to limp to the sideline.Things weren't much better for the Chiefs on defense.Middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens, who has the defensive radio in his helmet and is responsible for getting everyone aligned, left early with a groin injury. Defensive linemen Xavier Williams (ankle) and Chris Jones (groin) departed later in the game, seriously wounding the Chiefs at the point of attack.It was hardly surprising that the Marlon Mack ran for 132 yards, averaging more than 4 1/2 yards a pop, and that the Colts piled up 180 yards and a touchdown on the ground."I've got to get the bigs playing better on both sides, the offensive and defensive line. It starts there," Reid said. "When you win it starts there. When you lose it starts there, too. But it's early in the season. We'll come back and learn from this, and some of these injuries, we'll get healthy."It can't happen soon enough.The Chiefs are in the midst of a brutal grind highlighted by four prime-time matchups in a six-week stretch. They play red-hot Houston next Sunday, then visit Denver on a short week, followed by a Sunday night game against Green Bay, a visit from Minnesota and a Monday night game against the Chargers.All before they get their bye and a chance to really get healthy."Obviously we have to move on pretty quickly. We're still early in the season," said Mahomes, who dismissed the seriousness of his ailing ankle, the same one he hurt in Week 1 against Jacksonville. "This loss hurts a lot but there's a long way to go. This is something we'll learn from." FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Tre McBride realizes that few New York Jets fans knew his name as recently as just a few weeks ago. And the speedy wide receiver is OK with that.He considers himself an underdog Brandon Copeland Jerseys 2019 , a guy who has been mostly overlooked during a brief NFL career that has included stops with Tennessee and Chicago.“I feel like any competitor would feel that way about themselves if they were kind of going through the things a roster bubble guy like myself goes through,” McBride said after a recent practice. “I’m not the only one who does and I’m not the only one who’ll ever go through this, so I don’t feel sorry for myself or anything.”No need. Those days of anonymity might be over.McBride has had an impressive training camp with the Jets, running with the starting offense at times while making a strong push to make the team’s opening-day roster.“Yeah, I feel like I have a little chip on my shoulder and maybe I feel like I’m underrated,” McBride said. “But that’s fine. That’s why I’m out here with this opportunity, to show people that I can play ball at the highest level.”The 25-year-old McBride is part of a receiving corps that includes Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor. Beyond those four, it’s unclear how many receivers will be kept among the remaining seven.ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen and Charone Peake are recent draft picks, while Andre Roberts is a veteran who provides versatility on special teams as a returner. There’s also Charles Johnson and Lucky Whitehead, once-promising youngsters who are coming off injuries.And then, there’s McBride, who was signed to the Jets’ practice squad last December after being waived by the Bears.“They are all pretty solid,” coach Todd Bowles said. “That’s going to be a tough group when final cuts come down because all of them can play and all of them will probably play somewhere in this league. If we do let some go, they’ll probably get picked up.”McBride has four catches for 40 yards in the first two preseason games, and has really impressed coaches throughout the offseason and training camp.“I’d say overall, I think I’ve taken advantage of the opportunities I’ve been given White Trumaine Johnson Jerseys ,” McBride said. “I think most important is that, for the most part, it’s been really consistent.”McBride knows he has two more preseason games to further impress, including Friday night against the Giants.Bowles said he expects his starters to play a minimum of two quarters in the game. With Enunwa and Pryor uncertain to play as they continue to work back from injuries, McBride could have a significant role.“Anything can happen,” he said. “I’ve been surprised before. I would like to believe that they’ve put me out with the 1s (starters) for a reason, not just because. That’s really what I have to go off of, that they trust me enough to be in there with the No. 1 quarterback and the No. 1 guys out there and that’s what I’m here to do, make some plays with the top guys.”McBride — whose given name is Douglas III — grew up in a military family that was often on the move. His father, Doug Jr., is a brigadier general in the U.S. Army and was stationed in places such as Hawaii, Virginia, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Texas and Maryland.Once the family got to Georgia, Tre’s mother Pamela and sister Taylor settled there with him — even after Doug Jr. was sent to his next post — so they could establish some roots.“Adapting to new environments and the way things are in the area I’m in is something that, at this point, comes natural to me,” McBride said.He was a three-sport star at Ola High School in McDonough Trumaine Johnson Jerseys 2019 , Georgia, while playing on the football team as well as the basketball and track and field squads. From there he went on to play football at the College of William and Mary and was a starter by his sophomore season. He finished second in school history with 196 career receptions and was fifth with 2,653 yards receiving.McBride’s stock for the 2015 draft rose after he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41 seconds at the NFL combine, with some expecting him to be taken as high as the third round. Six rounds came and went, though, before Tennessee took him in the seventh as the 245th player chosen.McBride spent most of his first two NFL seasons bouncing back and forth between the Titans’ practice squad, the active roster and waivers. After two catches in two years, McBride was among Tennessee’s final cuts last September. He was claimed by Chicago and signed to the Bears’ practice squad before being promoted and having eight catches for 144 yards in eight games — but was then waived and signed by the Jets.“I’ve had great camps every year I’ve been in the league,” he said. “When I get on the field and I get an opportunity, I can play ball. Maybe the numbers don’t work out, maybe I’m not their guy, whoever it is, but it’s never because I didn’t show that I could play.”McBride might stick around this time — and his name is certainly catching on with Jets fans.“I’m past everything that’s happened in the past, except for what’s going on right now,” McBride said. “I’m kind of focusing on this opportunity and making the most of it.”
  15. Vikings’ early injury report: Trae Waynes returns Discount Alexander Mattison Jersey , Riley Reiff sits out On Wednesday, the Minnesota Vikings had their first practice of the week in preparation for their contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon at U.S. Bank Stadium. It was a bit of a mixed bag for the Vikings, with a key member of the defense making his return, and an important member of the offense sitting things out.Reports from Eagan say that cornerback Trae Waynes returned to practice on Wednesday for the purple. Waynes suffered a concussion in the Week 4 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, and had not cleared the league’s concussion protocol in time to play in Week 5 against Philadelphia. He’s back now, though Replica Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey , and it sounds like he’s in line to regain his starting gig this coming Sunday.On the other end of the spectrum, starting left tackle Riley Reiff sat out of Wednesday’s practice with the foot injury that he’s been dealing with for several weeks. Reiff was listed on the injury report in both Week 4 and Week 5, but played in both contests (despite not practicing at all leading up to the Philadelphia game). Reiff left last Sunday’s game in the second quarter and was replaced at left tackle by Rashod Hill, with rookie Brian O’Neill jumping into Hill’s spot at right tackle. If Reiff is unable to go on Sunday against Arizona, I would think we would see the same configuration.Another starter that didn’t practice for the Vikings on Wednesday was safety Andrew Sendejo, who sat out with a groin injury. No indication of who might start in his place if he’s not able to go. It could be Anthony Harris Stitched Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey , or we could finally see George Iloka get some significant snaps on the defensive side of the ball.Looking at the rest of the injury report, cornerback/punt returner Marcus Sherels was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, and looks as though he’s set to play for the first time since Week 2 after dealing with a rib injury. Defensive end Tashawn Bower sat out of practice with an ankle injury. That same injury caused him to be deactivated for last Sunday’s win in Philadelphia.And, of course, Everson Griffen is still not back practicing with the team, and no definitive timetable has been given for his return.We will continue tracking the health of the Vikings until the final injury reports come out on Wednesday.
