  1. of the draft in Nashville last week when he asked someone in his party if every player attending would be selected that night.He was surprised to learn that there are always players who are left in the green room once the first round comes to an end and he learned a few hours later that he fell into that category this year. Williams wound up being selected by the Browns in the second round and he was asked on Friday if he was bothered by not being one of the first 32 players off the board.“I feel like God’s got a place for everybody. My place wasn’t going in the first round https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Bernie-Kosar-Jersey ,” Williams said from Browns minicamp. “My place was to be in “The Land” and come build with a great team, great coaching staff. I’m just happy to be here, ready to go to work with the vets and hopefully we’re going where we’re supposed to go.”Williams added that being the seventh cornerback chosen was something he’ll use as a motivational tool as he embarks on his time in Cleveland.Williams made it clear where he believes the Browns are supposed to go when he said last week that they’ll be heading to the Super Bowl. Williams said that was “just excitement” about launching his NFL career, but no one in “The Land” would mind if he turns out to be correct. The jury is still out on whether Freddie Kitchens will be a good football coach. But at least he’s self aware.Peppered with questions about his decision to call a draw play on fourth and nine from the Rams’ 40 while down 17-13 with 9:19 to play, Kitchens repeatedly admitted his mistake.“Bad call,” Kitchens said. He said that the draw play was the call he wanted, and it was clear that he indeed knew it was fourth down.“It just did not work Sheldrick Redwine Jersey ,” Kitchens said. “It was a bad call. . . . We were trying to win the game. We were on their side of the field. Bad call.”It was smart to go for it in that spot, but Kitchens outsmarted himself by trying a run with so many yards to gain. Of course, if it had worked we’d be calling him a genius. Because it gained only two yards, not a genius.Making the decision to run on fourth and nine even more conspicuous was the failure of Kitchens to call a single running play once the Browns had the ball inside the L.A. five with 43 seconds left and time outs on the board.“I should have run it once,” Kitchens admitted. “Should have run it three times.”So why didn’t he?“I just did not,” Kitchens said. (Technically, that’s an accurate explanation http://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Seibert-Jersey , even if not very insightful.)“I was being facetious,” he added regarding his statement that he should have run the ball three times. “I should have ran it one time. I should have. That is why I am kicking myself in the ass for it right now.”It all adds up to a very basic, candid self-assessment from Kitchens: “We did not win the game so I do not think I did very good.”The Browns are not doing very good this season, with a 1-2 record and real challenges looming against the Ravens and 49ers.

    Jermaine Whitehead Jersey

    GREEN BAY Jermaine Whitehead Jersey , Wis. (AP) — A lost season coming to a close without a trip to the playoffs for the Green Bay Packers is ending in a familiar spot for Aaron Rodgers. He’s headed to the Pro Bowl for the seventh time in his career.“Yeah, I think there’s a lot of pride with that. Especially knowing the struggles early in the season with my health, and I’m very appreciative,” Rodgers said Wednesday.It has been quite the winding road for the Packers and their franchise quarterback since the season-opening win in September against the Chicago Bears. Rodgers hurt his left knee in that game before returning after halftime to lead Green Bay’s rousing 24-23 win following falling to a 20-point deficit.The victory turned out to be the highlight for a disappointing year in Titletown.Rodgers worked through the injury early in the season, missing practice at times to focus on rehab. Injuries to receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison meant more playing time for Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown, rookies who hadn’t developed the kind of rapport veterans Cobb and Allison had with the quarterback.Going into this weekend’s game against the New York Jets, Rodgers’ 61.8 percent completion rate was his lowest since his 60.7 rate in 2015, the year that then-top receiver Jordy Nelson was sidelined with a knee injury. The Packers (5-8-1) are 0-7 on the road, having led or been competitive in the second half in each of their last five road defeats before falling short.Season-long struggles on third down and in the red zone helped contribute to the demise of coach Mike McCarthy, who was fired after a stunning 20-17 home loss on Dec. 2 to the lowly Arizona Cardinals.Rodgers still set an NFL record after throwing 402 attempts without an interception, a streak that ended last week in the 24-17 loss at Chicago that helped extinguish Green Bay’s faint playoff hopes.“I think there (are) a lot of teams in the National Football League that would love to have a quarterback with 23 touchdowns and two interceptions, and who’s battled through some things and provided leadership to the football team each and every week,” interim head coach Joe Philbin said.Rodgers said he hurt his groin last week, though he played the whole game. A year ago, Rodgers sat out the final two weeks after a one-game return from a collarbone injury when the Packers were eliminated that week following a loss to Carolina.Rodgers said he is playing this week, adding he was a full participant in practice on Wednesday.“Well, I think it’s a lot about leadership. If I want to be listened to and followed and looked up to Aaron Ripkowski Color Rush Jersey , how could I stand here and say that ‘these games that don’t matter for playoffs, I’m going to cash it in,'” Rodgers said.“That’s just not the way I lead, and I’m super competitive,” he added, “and I want to be out there with the guys, and I look forward to being out there.”Another motivating factor to playing could be how close Davante Adams is to setting franchise receiving records. After reaching 100 catches for the first time in his career, Adams needs 13 over the final two games to break Sterling Sharpe’s mark for catches in a season.At 1,315 yards receiving, Adams is 205 from breaking Nelson’s single-season yardage record set in 2014. Asked if he was keeping track, Adams said he wasn’t counting.“That would be cool, we’ll see,” Adams said with a smile. “Hopefully A-Rod’s counting, so we’ll see.”Adams was also voted to the Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday. It’s the second trip for Adams, but his first original selection.NOTES: DL Kenny Clark, who missed last week’s game with an elbow injury, said he had not been told Wednesday that he was going to be placed on injured reserve https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Demetri-Goodson-Jersey , and that he would play if cleared. Clark, who has six sacks, is third on the team with 55 tackles. … RT Bryan Bulaga, who missed the last two games with a knee injury, practiced. He said he hopes to return on Sunday.

What were the other key injuries to watch from the second practice of the week?Colts’ Adam Vinatieri on verge of joining rare club of 46-year-old players | CBS 4 - Indianapolis News, Weather, Traffic and Sports | WTTVINDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – As the seasons have unfolded – one, two, three, 23 – and the dark in Adam Vinatieri’s beard has continued to lose its battle with the gray, the exclusive neighborhood has awaited his arrival. George Blanda. Morten Andersen. John Carney.Colts Notebook: Defense focusing on bruising Henry | Sports | heraldbulletin.comIt wasn't just a 99-yard run. That record-tying feat would have been plenty impressive on its own. It was also the way Derrick Henry did it.New guard Denzelle Good is channeling his anger and getting a chance with the Raiders – The AthleticDenzelle Good is a late addition to the Raiders offensive line, but he was a big part of some key plays last Sunday.COLTS MEDIA Saturday’s wild-card game between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts is a matchup that seemed improbable early this season after Houston dropped its first three games and the Colts limped to a 1-5 start.Instead of letting their tough starts lead to disappointing years, these teams which both finished 4-12 last season turned things around to lead the AFC South and charge into the postseason.Houston’s rebound began at the expense of the Colts (10-6) and it was thanks in part to a controversial call by Indianapolis coach Frank Reich in overtime. The game was tied 34-34 when, instead of punting on fourth-and-4 from his 43-yard line and likely settling for a tie, Reich called for a short pass from Andrew Luck to Chester Rogers. Luck’s pass fell incomplete, Houston got a 24-yard completion on the next play, and Ka’imi Fairbairn made a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give the Texans (11-5) a 37-34 victory.“We knew that to be able to come out on the winning end of that game was a big thing for us, but that’s a long time ago Nate Hairston Color Rush Jersey ,” Houston coach Bill O’Brien said. “The teams have evolved over time, so it’s a new ballgame now.”The win was the first of nine straight for Houston. The Texans didn’t lose again until a visit from the Colts on Dec. 9, a 24-21 Indy victory. Houston then won two of its last three games, capped by a 20-3 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday to clinch the division — and become the sixth team since 1980 and first since 1998 to make the playoffs after a 0-3 start.The Colts’ loss to Houston in Week 4 was the second of four straight that dropped them to 1-5. Indianapolis then won its next five and nine of its last 10 to make its first playoff appearance since a 2014 AFC championship game loss at New England. Yes, the “Deflategate” game.The Colts are the third team in NFL history to reach the postseason after losing five of the first six games.These teams have more in common than their difficult starts. They’re both led by a player making a comeback after an injury.Luck returned after missing the 2017 season with a shoulder injury to throw for 4,593 yards and rank second in the NFL with 39 touchdown passes. His best games this season have come against Houston, piling up 863 yards passing with six touchdowns.Trying to slow him down on Saturday will be Houston’s comeback star J.J. Watt, who played all 16 games after starting just eight games combined in the previous two years because of back surgeries and a broken leg. Watt led the AFC with 16 sacks, had 25 quarterback hits, 18 tackles for losses and forced a career-high seven fumbles, which tied for most in the NFL.Watt said Luck has been getting rid of the ball quicker this season, which makes his job as a pass rusher much more difficult.“You try and do different things, but at the end of the day, you try and get there, and if you can get your hands up, you get your hands up,” he said. “You just try and get there. You can’t really let it affect you, and you hope maybe he holds it for an extra second.”Some things to know about Houston’s game against Indianapolis:HILTON’S INSome of T.Y. Hilton‘s most memorable moments have come against the Texans — especially when he visits Houston.The Colts’ top receiver has caught 41 passes for 933 yards with seven TDs in seven games at NRG Stadium https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Braden-Smith-Jersey , and in the last two trips to Houston Hilton has 14 receptions for 374 yards and two TDs. So even though he’s been hobbled by a bad ankle, which he initially injured at Houston on Dec. 9, Hilton insists he’ll be fine Sunday.“That’s probably why it’s starting to feel better,” Hilton joked earlier this week when asked about playing in Houston for the second time in a month.DESHAUN’S DEBUTHouston quarterback Deshaun Watson will make his playoff debut in his second year in the NFL. Don’t expect the 12th overall pick in the 2017 draft to be daunted by the challenge after he played plenty of huge games at Clemson, highlighted by leading his team to the national title game twice. The Tigers lost to Alabama when Watson was a sophomore before he helped Clemson beat Alabama 35-31 for the 2016 national championship.“It’s just another opportunity for myself and this whole team to be able to show what we’ve got and put in the work,” Watson said. “I’ve played in a lot of big games before in college and stuff, but you can’t really pit college playoffs with the NFL. This is the hardest business, top-notch. It’s a whole new season, a whole new speed of game. So it’s going to be new for me (and) it’s going to be a lot of fun.”TURNAROUND TIMEIndy didn’t just rebound from a 1-5 start to make the playoffs. It rewrote the book.While the oft-criticized offensive line allowed a league-low 18 sacks after giving up a league-high 56 in 2017, the biggest change came on defense, where the Colts were ranked No. 11. They had the league’s leading tackler, 26 takeaways, allowed only 16.4 points over the final eight games, and were one of three teams that didn’t allow a 100-yard rusher all season.The Colts know it will take more of the same to advance.“The last time we did a good job, that was great for us, but this is a new challenge this week,” Reich said when asked about defending Pro Bowl receiver DeAndre Hopkins. “I’m sure they are going to try to get him going.”
  4. the 2018 offseason https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/hats , much of it was due to the notable losses of Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, Cliff Avril, Michael Bennett, Jimmy Graham, Sheldon Richardson, and Paul Richardson. Well Seattle made the playoffs without them, and with the exception of Chancellor and Avril, everyone else I mentioned went to another team.How did these former Seahawks perform elsewhere? Well that’s the point of this post, so let’s get right to it!Richard Sherman - San Francisco 49ersSherman didn’t record an interception for the first time in his illustrious career. In fact, the 49ers only managed two INTs all year, which is astonishingly bad. He also missed a couple of games due to a calf injury, but opposing QBs still avoided throwing in his direction for the most part. It appears as if the only touchdown he “allowed” all year was Russell Wilson’s strike to Jaron Brown.Not making the Pro Bowl or an All-Pro team did cost Sherman if you look at his contract.Oh yeah, and he got ejected against the Chicago Bears.Michael Bennett - Philadelphia EaglesThe only Seahawk of note to be traded this past offseason, Bennett was as good as ever in Philadelphia. He was second on the Eagles defense with nine sacks, only 1.5 sacks behind Fletcher Cox. Bennett started ten games but played in all sixteen, and was a menace in the backfield both against the run and the pass, like usual.Perhaps it’s because he played 200+ fewer snaps in 2018 than 2017, but Bennett was penalized only seven times (five accepted) Seattle Seahawks Hoodie , the fewest he’s had since 2012. After having a ridiculous 13 pre-snap penalties last season, Bennett was only flagged five times for offsides/neutral zone infraction/encroachment. Sheldon Richardson - Minnesota VikingsSheldon was traded to the Seahawks for Jermaine Kearse in 2017, and while defensive tackle statistics can often mislead as far as gauging overall player effectiveness, he recorded 4.5 sacks with the Minnesota Vikings (compared to just one with Seattle) and 16 QB hits (to just 7 in Seattle). Richardson also had more tackles for losses (six) with the Vikings than with the Seahawks (three). Minnesota has (at least to me) a more talented front four than the Seahawks, which sure helps. Richardson wasn’t too far behind Michael Bennett in terms of QB hits on the year.That said, his return to Seattle saw him get owned on Chris Carson’s touchdown run (watch Jordan Simmons, #66), and he was a non-factor as a pass rusher.Richardson is a free agent after signing a one-year “prove-it” deal with Minnesota.DeShawn Shead - Detroit LionsShead was Seattle’s #2 CB from late 2015 and into 2016. He tore his ACL against the Atlanta Falcons and barely played in 2017. Shead was let go and signed on with the Detroit Lions, and while I hold nothing against DeShawn, he certainly didn’t look very good in either of these plays.Shead appeared in 12 games with a single start for Detroit, and he didn’t record a pass defensed or an interception. It’s been only one year, but I much prefer Tre Flowers over Shead. Jimmy Graham - Green Bay PackersThe fact that Graham had any considerable success after his patellar tendon rupture in 2015 is a credit to him, but it is looking increasingly clear that his best days are behind him. He’s already being talked about as a possible cap casualty, and for good reason. Graham had just 55 catches for 636 yards and two touchdowns... and his first touchdown as a Packer was a very illegal pick play by Geronimo Allison (#81) two yards down the field.Graham’s DVOA was lower than Nick Vannett, for what it’s worth. In fact, Packers teammate Lance Kendricks had better DVOA and DYAR.I think this two-minute video sums up Graham’s season along with a good understanding of why Mike McCarthy got fired. Essentially, Graham’s 2018 was his 2017 season except fewer drops and a sharp reduction in touchdowns.Luke Willson - Detroit LionsSeattle’s revamp of the TE position extended beyond Jimmy Graham, as Luke Willson was not re-signed during free agency. RIP Techno Thursday. Anyway, Willson was Detroit’s #2 tight end behind Levine Toilolo Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , and recorded 13 catches for 87 yards and no touchdowns. If he stays with the team, he’ll be reunited with Darrell Bevell, Detroit’s new offensive coordinator.Paul Richardson - WashingtonIn a world where Paul wasn’t a free agent in 2018, I think Seahawks fans would’ve loved a trio of Doug Baldwin-Tyler Lockett-Paul Richardson. Alas, he went to Washington on a 5-year, $40 million contract, but as has defined his college and professional career, injury cut his season short.P-Rich appeared in just seven games, starting four, racking up 20 catches(on 35 targets) for 262 yards and two touchdowns. His first TD sure didn’t look out of place from what we saw during his better games in Seattle.Unfortunately, a bothersome AC joint issue that was a problem in 2017 wound up being reaggravated in 2018, and Washington placed him on injured reserve. It’s the third time Richardson has ended an NFL season on IR. When he does return in 2019, it’ll likely be a QB other than Alex Smith, who might miss all of next season after that horrible broken leg.I think it’s safe to say that Bennett had the best season of all the ex-Seahawks from the 2017 roster, while Graham is on his way to being a bust of a signing for Green Bay. Bennett was also the only one to actually make the playoffs, while everyone else stayed home after Week 17.For the sake of tidying things up, Jon Ryan, Eddie Lacy, Blair Walsh http://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Cody-Barton-Jersey , Byron Maxwell, Jeremy Lane, Tanner McEvoy, and Luke Joeckel weren’t signed to any regular season roster in 2018, although Ryan was cut by the Buffalo Bills in preseason, and McEvoy is currently on the Bills practice squad. Thomas Rawls didn’t get a carry while with the Cincinnati Bengals for a very brief period of time, and has since signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lastly, the Arizona Cardinals signed Rees Odhiambo from the Indianapolis Colts practice squad in December. The Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles bolstered their formidable pass rush with another top-level defensive lineman.The Eagles acquired three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday, three people familiar with the trade told The Associated Press. The deal won’t be officially announced until the NFL’s league year opens next Wednesday. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to release the trade information.Seattle gets wide receiver Marcus Johnson and a fifth-round pick, while Philadelphia also receives a seventh-round pick.Bennett had 8 sacks last season and 54 in his nine-year career. The 32-year-old Bennett has three years remaining on his contract, with a base salary of just $1.65 million in 2018. That number jumps to $6 million in 2019 and $7.5 million in 2020.The Eagles will have to make roster moves to accommodate Bennett because they already are over the salary cap. Defensive end Vinny Curry is a likely candidate to be traded or released. Curry started 19 games this season, including playoffs, had three sacks and has three years left on a five-year, $47 million deal.Bennett joins a deep front unit that includes Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, Chris Long and Tim Jernigan. He probably won’t face double-teaming as much and could thrive in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s aggressive system.The outspoken Bennett has been heavily involved in social activism and fits in nicely in Philadelphia’s locker room with Long and safety Malcolm Jenkins, who are leaders in those areas.Seattle could be moving on from another defensive star. Cornerback Richard Sherman also is on the trading block.Johnson has five catches for 45 yards in 10 career games.—AP Sports Writer Tim Booth contributed to this report.—AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL—
  5. Another week Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey , another honor for Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.This time it is the AFC Offensive Player of the Week Award, which Mayfield pocketed after leading the Browns to a season sweep of the Cincinnati Bengals.The news was announced on the league’s website, with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles taking home the honor on the NFC side.Against the Bengals in front of a raucous home crowd at FirstEnergy Stadium, Mayfield completed 27-of-37 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns passes. (Not to mention one completely awesome stare down of former head coach Hue Jackson late in the fourth quarter.)With one game remaining on the schedule, Mayfield has thrown for 24 touchdowns, the third-highest total in league history for a rookie. He is now just two touchdown passes behind Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Emmanuel-Ogbah-Jersey , two quarterbacks fans may have heard of, who sit at the top of the list. In addition to that league mark, Mayfield needs just 151 passing yards on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens to become just the fourth different quarterback in franchise history to pass for 3,500 yards in a single season. And with a touchdown pass, Mayfield will be just the fifth different quarterback in franchise history to pass for 25 touchdowns in a single season.Those numbers have helped Mayfield practically lap the field this season among his fellow rookie quarterbacks, as Pro Football Focus points out:The offensive player of the week award is just the latest for Mayfield Denzel Ward Jersey , who has been selected as the NFL Rookie of the Week five times and took home the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month Award for the month of November. Below, we analyze the snap counts and stats on defense for the Cleveland Browns’ Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons.Defensive LinePosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsThe intriguing thing about this week’s defensive line snap counts should be obvious: it’s the first time we saw playing time distributed like it was last year. Instead of over-taxing Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi for 90% of the snaps, each were around the 60% to 67% range.That allowed much more playing time for Anthony Zettel (33%) and Chris Smith (29%). This is a distribution I’d love to see more of moving forward to keep players fresher.Myles Garrett did not log a sack, sending him into the bye week with 9 sacks in 10 games. Per PFF, Garrett did not even log a single pressure. Emmanuel Ogbah led the Browns with 4 pressures.LinebackerPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsWith Christian Kirksey out for the year, Jamie Collins stepped up for his finest performance of the season. He finished with a game grade of 74.7 from PFF and a team-high 9 tackles.But it wasn’t just him. Joe Schobert returned from injury with an immediate impact. His 90.1 grade from PFF led the defense Trevon Coley Color Rush Jersey , as they credited him with the following:Let’s not leave out Vallejo, who logged 6 tackles and played 55% of the snaps. He received the 3rd highest defensive grade from PFF with a 77.1. I can’t proclaim that the Browns have found a “gem” quite yet, but they appear to have something of a player in Vallejo.CornerbackPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsHoly hell, what got in to T.J. Carrie? That’s the player we thought we were getting from Oakland! He had the Browns’ second-highest defensive grade of the day. Per PFF, he allowed 5 catches for 43 yards when targeted, which wasn’t bad given the situations in which those catches were made. He also forced a key fumble that led to a touchdown. Even the pass interference called against him was a relatively clean play.Denzel Ward returned to the lineup and played every snap. The Browns only went with three cornerbacks https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Duke-Johnson-Jersey , keeping the new additions out of the lineup. SafetyPosPlayerPlays%StatsPosPlayerPlays%StatsDamarious Randall returned to action and played nearly every snap.Jabrill Peppers out-snapped Derrick Kindred again, and had an awesome stick at the goal line that eventually proved to be the difference in the Falcons turning the ball over on downs at the 1 yard line.

    Jake Ryan Jersey

    SEATTLE (AP) — After a shaky beginning Jake Ryan Jersey , Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle’s defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race.“We’ve been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump,” Wagner said. “We’ve been down, we’ve been up, we’ve lost close games, we’ve won close games. It was time.”Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.Article continues below ...In a key matchup in the battle for the two NFC wild-card spots, Seattle (5-5) snapped a two-game losing streak by overcoming an early 14-3 deficit. Wilson was inconsistent at times early, but was outstanding in the fourth quarter, capping the winning drive by recognizing a blitz and hitting Dickson quickly for his second TD pass of the night.“I thought that whole drive was pretty exceptional. … When it came down to it, third-down, you’ve got to win in the red-zone and we were pretty clutch in the red-zone there at the end of the game,” Wilson said.Seattle still has not lost three straight games since the middle of the 2011 season and the Seahawks finally closed out a one-score victory after consecutive close losses to the Chargers and Rams. Seattle was 1-8 in its previous nine games decided by one score.Rodgers had a huge first half and threw for 332 yards, but the Packers (4-5-1) had just one scoring drive in the second half, helped by a 57-yard strike from Rodgers to Davante Adams. Rodgers threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half, but never got the ball back after Green Bay punted with 4:20 left. Seattle got first-down runs from Wilson and Mike Davis and finished the game kneeling three times.“It was definitely consideration, but with the one time out and the clock stopped at two minutes, we played the numbers Lance Kendricks Color Rush Jersey ,” Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said.Chris Carson rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown, overcoming the mistake of fumbling on the first play of the game and setting up Green Bay’s opening score. Tyler Lockett had two key receptions late in the fourth quarter and Doug Baldwin had his first TD catch of the season for Seattle.Rodgers was 21-of-30 passing with 10 of those going to Adams for 166 yards receiving. Backup tight end Robert Tonyan had the first catch of his career go for a 54-yard touchdown to give Green Bay an early 14-3 lead. The Packers led 21-17 at halftime after Aaron Jones caught a 24-yard TD pass from Rodgers in the final minute of the half, but Green Bay’s offense was stymied in the second half.“Of course there’s hope. Of course we believe in each other,” Rodgers said. “It’s just going to take one galvanizing moment, whether that’s a speech or a practice or something happens in the game, something’s got to get this thing going.”Jones finished with 40 yards rushing after going for a career-high 145 a week ago. Rodgers was sacked five times, four of those in the second half. The Packers gained just 114 yards in the second half, half coming on the one throw from Rodgers to Adams. That pass set up Mason Crosby’s 36-yard field goal with 8:23 left to give Green Bay a 24-20 lead.Wilson had one more answer. Wilson hit Lockett on consecutive plays for 18 yards — to convert a third-down — and 34 yards to the Green Bay 16. Two plays later, facing another third-and-long, Wilson recognized the blitz and hit Dickson quickly over the middle to put Seattle in front.That proved to be enough. On Green Bay’s next drive, Rodgers short-hopped a pass on third-and-2.“The ball just stuck to my hand and went in the dirt,” Rodgers said. “Frustrating obviously, I can do that a hundred times and probably not do that again.Rather than going for it on fourth-down, Green Bay punted and never got the ball back.“I have faith in this team so I’m going to be an aggressive caller and go for it and say that we’ll get it, but at the same time, you have to be realistic and I agree with coaches call 100 percent put it back on the defense,” Adams said. “It was tough https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davon-House-Jersey , they have a great running game, they made a play and that’s how it unfolded.”INJURIESGreen Bay was down four starters with CB Kevin King, S Kentrell Brice, LB Nick Perry and WR Randall Cobb all out due to injuries. They lost two more in the first half when Bashaud Breeland — starting for King — aggravated a groin injury and Jimmy Graham injured his thumb. Graham had a 13-yard reception on Green Bay’s first offensive play in his return to Seattle, but that was his only catch.Mike Daniels suffered a foot injury early in the second half and backup safety Raven Greene suffered an ankle injury. Neither returned.ROAD WOESThe Packers dropped to 0-5 on the road this season and have lost seven straight away from Lambeau Field dating to last season.UP NEXTPackers: At Minnesota on Nov. 25.Seahawks: At Carolina on Nov. 25. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Rashan Gary is his own worst critic. Nobody is harder on him than himself.But the rookie outside linebacker is trying to not allow that to get the best of him as he figures his way in Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s defense.“I’m just trying to understand that if I mess up in practice, I still have a couple more team periods to erase it,” Gary said on Friday after Green Bay’s second practice of training camp. “But I’m always hard on myself. I’m the hardest person when it comes to breaking down my own film. But it’s a learning process. I know I’m at the point where I’m able to do certain things I know I need to do. I know I can execute.”Gary’s locker is nestled between outside linebackers Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith. Gary said he’s just trying to soak up as much knowledge as he can from the two veterans.“Those two guys are just molding me,” Gary said. “Everything they’re doing, I’m following in their footsteps.”Green Bay acquired the two Smiths in March to bolster its pass-rush personnel. The Packers drafted Gary the following month with the 12th overall pick to do the same.With the release of former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Mike Daniels earlier this week, Gary could be asked to do more. The two-time first-team All-Big Ten performer at Michigan said that’s not a problem.“If coach wants me to play the 3 (technique), then I’m going to go rush at the 3,” he said. “If you want me to stay outside, keep rushing outside, that’s what I’m about to do. Day by day, I’ve just been working on perfecting my craft and becoming the best I can for this team.”Gary’s listed as an outside linebacker but played both defensive end and defensive tackle while at Michigan. When asked what position he prefers, Gary kept it simple: “I’m an athlete. I don’t know how else to put it. I feel like whatever the coach wants me to do Bryan Bulaga Jersey , I could do it.”Preston Smith, a fifth-year veteran who played his first four seasons in Washington, said he’s never seen a player at Gary’s height and weight that also has his athleticism. The 6-foot-5, 277-pound Gary ran a 4.58 40-yard dash at the NFL combine, the fastest by any defensive lineman in this year’s event.“He’s a good kid,” Preston said. “He has his head on right. He’s always willing to come in and learn. He loves to compete. He always wants to get better. … Being a young kid, I just try to tell him, ‘Man, don’t let it get to your head,’ because sometimes he thinks he’s not doing as good as he knows he can.“I have to tell him, ‘You’re still doing good, man. Just watch the film and improve on it and try to polish up certain areas of your game.'”The priority for Gary is just to learn. Learn as much as he can as quickly as he can. Gary said he has already picked up from Aaron Rodgers that he’s tipping some of his coverages. Gary said he’s talked with Rodgers about how to better disguise his plans on the field.Gary and the Packers’ first preseason test will come Aug. 8 at Lambeau Field against the Texans. The two teams will hold joint practices Aug. 5-6 in Green Bay. Gary said he will be keeping a close eye on three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.“When it comes to people that are taking over the game — from rushing the passer to setting the edge and playing the run — having a guy like J.J. Watt come down, a guy I look at and watch his film, I can’t wait to watch him. It’s going to be a good thing. But I’m going to watch from a distance and make sure I take my notes on him.”Notes: S Darnell Savage (teeth), CB Josh Jackson (foot) and K Mason Crosby (calf) missed their second straight practice of training camp. … LB Kendall Donnerson left with a hamstring injury. … The Packers signed RB Corey Grant and DL Olive Sagapolu and released DL Eric Cotton. Grant was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn by the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he played under now Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
  7. of his final chance Sunday.The third-year kicker missed a 59-yarder to win the game at the end of regulation Darius Leonard Color Rush Jersey , then a 37-yarder near the end of overtime. But the Indianapolis Colts had called timeout just before that one, and Fairbairn finally made the decisive kick as time expired to help Houston snap the league’s longest losing streak with a 37-34 victory at Indianapolis.“It was a rollercoaster. I was just trying to steady,” Fairbairn said. “That’s exactly what we needed.”Nothing went according to the script.Just moments earlier, Adam Vinatieri, the NFL’s new career field goals leader, thought he might get to it.But after Andrew Luck bounced a short pass to Chester Rogers on fourth-and-4 from his own 43-yard line, Deshaun Watson got the ball back with 24 seconds left and no timeouts and found DeAndre Hopkins for a 24-yard completion to get Fairbairn into position.His first try sailed wide as the crowd roared. But coach Frank Reich called timeout in an effort to ice Fairbairn, who made the second one .The bigger question https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Denzelle-Good-Jersey , though, was about Reich’s decision to go for it rather than punt and settle for a tie.“We’re not playing to tie,” Reich said. “We’re going for that 10 times out of 10. That (play) has just got to work.”When it didn’t, the Texans‘ nine-game losing streak was over with their first win since Nov. 19.The most promising news for Houston (1-3), though, was that Watson & Co. appeared to be in sync.Watson finished 29 of 42 with 375 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while running six times for 41 yards and another score. He connected with Hopkins 10 times for 169 yards and a score, and Keke Coutee 11 times for 109 yards. And Watson made enough plays late in regulation and overtime to give Fairbairn a chance.The Texans’ defense harassed Luck all day Clayton Geathers Jersey , sacking him four times, limited Indy’s ground game to just 41 yards on 17 carries and converted two turnovers into 14 points.“It was very unconventional, but we’ll take it,” J.J. Watt said after recording two more sacks and becoming the second-fastest in league history to 80.It’s the third time in four weeks Indy (1-3) has fallen short in the closing minutes, this one spoiling Vinatieri’s milestone day.The 45-year-old kicker became the league’s career leader in field goals when he made a 42-yarder with 2 seconds left in the first half. He extended the mark to 567 with a 44-yarder that gave Indy a 34-31 lead with 6 minutes left in overtime.Vinatieri moved past Hall of Famer Morten Andersen, who had 565 career field goals.But Fairbairn tied the score with a 29-yard kick and won it with the 37-yarder.Luck was 40 of 62 for a career-high 464 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions but lamented his last throw.“I did not get the ball to Chester to make the play and I’m sick about it,” he said.Still, Luck gave Indy a chance after trailing 28-7 midway through the third quarter.He threw a 14-yard TD pass to Nyheim Hines Nate Hairston Color Rush Jersey , a 5-yard TD pass to Eric Ebron and a 9-yard TD pass to Hines before tying the score at 31 with a 2-point conversion pass to Rogers with 45 seconds to go in regulation.Vinatieri’s overtime field goal gave Indy a 34-31 lead but the defense couldn’t close it out.“Any time you win a game, no matter how you win it, it’s great,” Hopkins said. “We knew what we were up against. We had to go out and finish it.”RECORD WATCHVinatieri also tied Gary Anderson for the second-most field-goal attempts in league history with 672, but he wasn’t the only record-breaker.Luck broke the Colts’ single-game franchise record for attempts, tied the franchise mark for completions, wound up second in franchise history for single-game yards and came within a whisker of tying the franchise’s largest regular-season comeback (21).Watt recorded two sacks in his second straight game, extending his own record to seven. And Coutee broke Andre Johnson’s franchise record for most receptions (six) in an NFL debut.INJURY REPORTTexans: Hopkins started despite dealing with thumb https://www.coltsfanshop.com/Braden-Smith-Jersey , ankle and hamstring injuries all week. Will Fuller V left with a hamstring injury late in the first half and linebacker Brian Peters did not return after injuring his ankle.Colts: Hilton suffered a chest injury in the first half and cornerback Kenny Moore II left with a concussion. Hilton returned but left later after hurting his hamstring.UP NEXTTexans: Host cross-state rival Dallas next Sunday night.Colts: Head to New England on Thursday night. The Colts announced on Friday that they are placing running back Spencer Ware on the physically unable to perform list, which means he can’t play for them this season. But Ware says he will play in 2019.“I am NOT done for season,” Ware wrote on Twitter. “When things happen you have to adjust and treat accordingly. I’m going to play THIS YEAR, so there are things that need to be done before that happens that’ll put me in the best case scenario. MINOR,MINOR, MINOR setback because of timing.”Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Ware’s plan is to reach an injury settlement with the Colts and then get his release, which would allow him to play for another team. Ware had ankle surgery and should be ready to play around the start of the regular season.Ware had 51 carries for 246 yards and 20 catches for 224 yards for the Chiefs last season. He signed with the Colts as a free agent in April.
  8. Robbie Gould Byron Maxwell Color Rush Jersey , the working title of this item was “One week later, no tags applied.” Since then, the title changed — and the point did as well.I was going to write that the two-week window for applying the franchise tag is a waste of time, and that there should be one and only one specific day on which tags can be applied. But then the 49ers applied their tag a full week before the day that I was going to suggest be the one day for doing so, and I realized the value of it.With a true sense of uncertainty as to whether the 49ers would tag a kicker (Ross Tucker once invited a social-media body slam from Pat McAfee by suggesting that no punter deserves the implication that goes along with the label “franchise tag”), with Gould openly discussing whether he’d be interested in returning to Chicago, and with the NFL’s annual tampering convention starting tomorrow in Indianapolis (more on that subject later), it was smart for the 49ers to hang a giant “off limits” placard on Gould, making it clear that teams are wasting their time in discussing general or specific interest in signing the kicker while meeting with agents over the next week.For most of the other potential franchise tag recipients (primarily, Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence Sebastian Janikowski Color Rush Jersey , Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark, Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford, and Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney), a similar move isn’t needed because it’s widely expected. Still, if the tag is coming anyway — and since the deadline for doing a long-term deal doesn’t arrive until July 15 — there’s no harm in making it completely clear that any team is wasting its time by talking to the agent for a free agent who won’t be free to leave.That still doesn’t mean two weeks are needed. There should still be only one day, and the one day (as the 49ers have shown) should be the day before the Combine begins. LONDON (AP)The NFL is heading to a new destination in London, and the first match-up at English Premier League club Tottenham will be the Oakland Raiders against the Seattle Seahawks in October. That’s if the 60,000-plus capacity stadium, which has been designed to accommodate soccer and NFL, is completed in time for Week 6. While Tottenham is sure that building work is on schedule on the White Hart Lane site where its previous stadium was demolished last year Dontae Johnson Color Rush Jersey , the NFL has contingency plans to move the Oct. 14 game to Wembley Stadium. The home of the England national soccer team is where the NFL will be staging another two games after Raiders-Seahawks match-up, giving London three consecutive weeks of American football for the first time. The Philadelphia Eagles will play the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tennessee Titans will take on the Los Angeles Chargers. The NFL is yet to decide which game will be on Oct. 21 in Week 7 and which slots into Week 8 on Oct. 28. ”It’s a great learning for us, it’s another test for us,” Mark Waller, the NFL’s executive vice president of international, said Thursday at the site of Tottenham’s new stadium. ”If we were ever to put a franchise in the UK we would need to know we can do three consecutive weekends.” The NFL had planned to stage two games in the 2018 season at Tottenham, which was runner-up in the Premier League last season. But Tottenham, which is using Wembley as its own temporary home this season, doesn’t want the burden of two NFL fixtures when it is still settling into its new D.J. Fluker Color Rush Jersey , unnamed stadium. ”We have created something very unique,” Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said at the announcement of fixtures. ”We still have another six or seven months of really hard work of construction.” Tottenham has signed a 10-year contract for games with the NFL. ”We very much hope there will be a franchise in London and we would very much like this stadium to be used for that club,” Levy said. ”We haven’t assumed there is going to be a franchise. It’s very much our desire.” The new stadium was designed with NFL-sized changing rooms and to ensure the grass soccer pitch can be retracted and kept under lights below the stands when the artificial surface is required for NFL. Waller said they ”don’t want to alienate” fans of Tottenham’s rivals by being so closely associated with one Premier League team. ”We will need to get that right,” Waller said. ”But we are also playing at Wembley so there will be plenty of other opportunities for fans to go elsewhere as well. It also puts an onus on us to ensure we are thoughtful about how we manage all our relationships.” By the end of the year, 29 of the NFL’s 32 franchises will have played in London since regular-season games were first played in the British capital in 2007. ”When we played the first game here we had no idea if we were ever coming back,” Waller said. —

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Giancarlo Stanton knows from his own heart-wrenching experience what the Los Angeles Angels are feeling now, and will experience moving forward, after the death of a teammate during the season.The slugger’s message to the Angels, playing with heavy hearts after the death of 27-year-old pitcher Tyler Skaggs, is to “hug each other, laugh, cry, lift the ones taking it extra hard up.”Stanton, now playing for the New York Yankees, was still with the Miami Marlins three years ago when 24-year-old two-time All-Star pitcher José Fernández was killed in a boating crash late that season.Los Angeles returned to the field with an emotional 9-4 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday night, a day after Skaggs was discovered unresponsive in his hotel room in Texas. No cause of death has been released.“You’re going to wonder why all of this is happening, is it real http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , why are u suiting up to play a game that seems irrelevant,” Stanton wrote in an Instagram post. “Some Anger will ensue while u have to grieve in a fish bowl. A lot will go through your mind. So stay together through that.”Stanton said the Angels need to understand how important their strength is for Skaggs’ family, as well as their fans and “anyone looking for the power to overcoming something.”Justin Bour, a first-year Angel who had a two-run single in his only at-bat Tuesday, was also with the Marlins in 2016.“I know how tough it’s going to be every single day,” Bour said after the game. “And it takes a really long time for it to sink in. And it still, sometimes it just doesn’t.”Texas catcher Jeff Mathis also played for the Marlins in 2016 and with Los Angeles in 2009 when 22-year-old Angels rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed by a drunk driver after only his fourth game in the big leagues.“It was almost like we were playing that season for him,” Mathis said about the 2009 Angels. “Obviously, it was something very dear to us to honor him in just the best way we could. Every time we stepped on that field that was part of the reason that we played the way we played.”The Angels won the AL West in 2009. They swept Boston in the AL Division Series before losing the AL Championship Series in six games to the New York Yankees.Angels owner Arte Moreno described it “like a punch in the heart” when general manager Billy Eppler called him Monday with the news about Skaggs. That brought back memories of Adenhart’s death 10 years ago.“The team is such a family, and when you take a piece away from the family, there’s always a hole,” Moreno said Tuesday after traveling to Texas to join his grieving team.Rangers pitcher Jesse Chavez spent 2017 with the Angels, and before Tuesday’s game, he ran around the outfield to greet and hug former teammates such as Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun.“It’s a little bit harder, especially when you’re playing a team that you played with him on,” Chavez said somberly. “He was a kid, plain and simple.”Angels manager Brad Ausmus and Seattle manager Scott Servais both played for the Astros, though they were teammates at different times in Houston with Darryl Kile, who in June 2002 with the St. Louis Cardinals died in a Chicago hotel room during a road trip. Kile was 33.Current Angels first baseman Albert Pujols was on that Cardinals team with Kile.Servais, an assistant GM for the Angels when they reacquired Skaggs after the 2013 season, said playing after a tragedy isn’t easy but provides some therapy by being back on the field.“It’s really hard to get through,” Servais said. “You have to lean on each other. That’s what you really have to do.”Servais was among the managers Barry Bonds Jersey , some of whom had been through similar situations, who reached out to Ausmus.“To a man, it’s the same advice, and that is there’s no handbook for this,” Ausmus said. “Just kind of got to go with your honest feelings. If you do that, I think then you’re not going to be wrong.”Ausmus, who broke down in tears while talking about Skaggs, described the feeling as identical to when Kile died.“Once the game starts it actually is a refuge because it takes your mind off, it distracts you for a while,” Ausmus said. “When you go back to your hotel room, you’re reminded of reality. … I know it gets easier, but it’s difficult.”Asked about the challenge of managing under such circumstances, instead of playing like he was after Kile’s death, Ausmus said everybody feels a tremendous loss but understands that life and the baseball season have to go on.“It’ll move forward at different paces for different guys, but this is just a reminder that professional athlete or not, we’re all human and it can strike just the same,” Ausmus said. “But as far as wearing the manager hat, I’m just wearing a hat right now. I’m just wearing an Angel hat.”
