it’s important to take the emotion out of what has happened for Dak Prescott in the last two games without Ezekiel Elliott Jersey

Matt Martin Limited Jersey With things having gone so cold, Smith and Reidprepare to get a ton of heat. Smith couldn’t afford such a midseason regression with first-round rookie Patrick Mahomes behind him. With the Steelers and Patriots surging and the upstart Jaguars rising past his team, Reid had to come out with his best game plan.

The Chiefs came out attacking on offense early this season, and everything looked awesome. They also found Hunt was a great way to finish games. They were pushing the right buttons in balancing aggressive and conservative.

Garoppolo has been a smart, grounded kid since he was drafted in the second round from Eastern Illinois. He should be a fast learner 锟斤拷 exactly why 49ers general manager John Lynch traded for the QB when he did. At 26, Garoppolo is the same age at which the school’s best-ever NFL QB, Tony Romo, got his shot with the Cowboys in 2006.
Emmanuel Lamur Limited Jersey
That was a different situation for coach Bill Parcells, of course. Dallas had a playoff-caliber team and needed improved QB play over fading, hurting, stationary Drew Bledsoe. Romo was prepped well during the previous two years under then-offensive coordinator Sean Payton, and he was set up to be successful immediately in the Cowboys’ system.

To be dead honest with you, I think we exhaled, and it’s hard to recover from that. So it’ll be a lesson that hopefully we all learned and can prevent it from happening again.

The Broncos were 3-1 after a Week 4 win over the Oakland Raiders, had a bye week and then lost at home to the previously winless New York Giants. The Broncos haven’t won since.

Marshall said Monday he believed he could respectfully disagree” with Elway and believed the word soft was the wrong way to describe what’s happened. Harris said after Sunday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals that everybody in this organization is accountable for the way we’re playing right now.

Coming off the first three interception game of his career in Sunday night’s loss to Reuben Foster Jersey Philadelphia, it’s important to take the emotion out of what has happened for Dak Prescott in the last two games without Ezekiel Elliott.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo holds ‘honest’ meeting with players

The Giants are a trainwreck as they sit 1-8 with seven games remaining in the season, and as a result Giants coach Ben McAdoo called all of the coaches and players together for a long, hard, honest meeting on Wednesday.

At some points (efforts were questioned), Kennard said. Just guys could have given more effort.

While McAdoo was optimistic of the opportunity ahead, Jonathan Quick Jersey which includes a tough matchup against the Chiefs this Sunday, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie thought the meeting might be too late to repair their losing season.

I think it would’ve put guys at a different attention on alert back then, because nobody wants to be called out. I don’t care what you say. Nobody wants to have that play up there where you have to come back in the locker room and everybody is looking at you like you’re that guy, Rodgers-Cromartie said. I think it could’ve helped if it were done earlier or not, but at least it got done.

Authentic Kids Phil Dawson Jersey The junior cornerback is a virtual lock to be a first-round draft pick if he leaves college for the NFL after this season, and he is projected to be a top-10 pick in several way-too-early mock drafts.

One NFL general manager told Sporting News he thinks Fitzpatrick might be the most under-valued prospect for the 2018 NFL Draft, and the GM would consider drafting the Bama product within the first three picks.

You want to talk about a kid who is impressing on tape and in person is Minkah Fitzpatrick, the GM said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. (NFL GMs are not allowed to comment publicly on current college players.) He’s a real deal. His vision and range 鈥?you can slot him into a defense come Week 1. He’s a stud.

The first defensive back selected in the 2017 NFL Draft was safety Jamal Adams, who the Jets took at No. 6 overall. In 2016, cornerback Jalen Ramsey (No. 5 overall, Jaguars) was the first defensive back selected.

Vikings make it official, activate Teddy Bridgewater, put Sam Bradford on IR

The Vikings’ quarterback conundrum appears to be resolved for now.

Minnesota has officially activated Teddy Bridgewater and placed Sam Bradford on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday.

The offense starts slow: The Celtics are basketball procrastinators, only cranking up their offense when they have to. Boston has ranked in the bottom third of the NBA in offensive efficiency all season. The Celtics have a propensity to start painfully slow, as evidenced by an offensive rating of 95.2 in the first halves this season (only the Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls, with a total of seven wins between them, have been worse). And yet Boston owns an offensive rating of 111.2 in the second halves of games, which is second only to the Golden State Warriors (119.7).

The starting offensive line that Green Bay projected in August was intact Monday for only the second time this season, but Bulaga’s fourth-quarter injury means the unit won’t be together again this season.

Justin McCray replaced Bulaga but limped off the field late with an apparent ankle injury.

On a three-game losing streak and without starting quarter back Aaron Rodgers, the Packers (4-4) must now juggle their offensive line again on a short week.

In addition to utilityman McCray, who has started multiple games at various positions this season because of injuries, Green Bay could turn to former second-round pick Jason Spriggs, who is on injured reserve but could be designated to return, or Ulrick John, who was signed off the Cardinals’ practice squad earlier thisnationals_002

LeBron just threw down his first triple-double of the season Tuesday night against the Nets.

Chicago’s magnet Jim Palmer Youth jersey schools, which offer specialized subject areas, draw applicants from around the city, with admission based on lottery for those who meet the academic requirements.

The playing field itself is uneven锟斤拷there’s a noticeable hump running down the middle of the field from end zone to end zone,. The grass is pocked with holes and divots. We have had bad snaps, because the ball has gotten stuck in a hole, Rood says. At Hanson Stadium, where the team plays a few away games, the surface isn’t much better. It’s the 1985 Bears AstroTurf, the carpet, says Rood.

Because the Pac-12 has already eaten itself, and the Big 12 and Big Ten will follow. The ACC waters will once again part for one-loss Clemson, handing them just enough ranked competition down the stretch, added to a schedule that includes resurgent South Carolina. What about independent Notre Dame? Keep reading.

Authentic Youth Brad Marchand Jersey LeBron’s sky-high true shooting percentage and PER both point toward slight overproduction. Remember that LeBron has a ton of miles, and that he’s a mortal lock to miss 8-10 games, and that Isaiah Thomas will come back at some point to siphon off some production.

LeBron just threw down his first triple-double of the season Tuesday night against the Nets. He’s going to have gobs of triple-doubles until Thomas returns. But the efficiency metrics bear out that this rate of production won’t last.

Coach Hue Jackson also bizarrely took a timeout with 42 seconds left in the first half at the goal line, which helped lead to a Minnesota field goal before halftime.

Pretty much fun, he said. I go from playing maybe eight snaps a game to most of the game. I knew, I KNEW I would show up and show out. It’s a pretty instant fit too: Peterson’s good friends with Larry Fitzgerald, and he’ll be staying in the guest house behind Fitzgerald’s house for as long as he wants.

Saints RB Daniel Lasco taken off field by ambulance

Sunday’s game between the Saints and Bills was paused for several minutes following a scary injury to Saints running back Daniel Lasco.

Kenny Stills, Miami Dolphins, back, (Q), 1 p.m. ET: Stills was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited participant because his back wasn’t feeling right, according Authentic Tristan Thompson Jersey to head coach Adam Gase. Stills was given Friday off to get treatment. Although Stills seemed to think he’d be ready by Sunday, Gase was not as confident. He will likely be a game-time decision.

Game Kids Adam LaRoche Jersey The Falcons’ quarterback announced Tuesday he and his wife, Sarah, are expecting twins.

It’s been a long road, but Matt and I couldn’t be happier to announce that we are expecting twins! she captioned the photo. We are anxiously awaiting their arrival in April. There’s just something about the number 2 in our house, I guess.

The first-time parents will welcome their new additions in April 2018.

ON A SUNDAY afternoon in mid-November, three days after Elliott began serving his suspension, Jerry Jones walked onto the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for a game between his Cowboys and Arthur Blank’s Falcons.

It’s not ideal to have Smith’s injury coincide with the time at which Ezekiel Elliott started his suspension, and Dallas misses its franchise lineman dearly. The 26-year-old’s absence was felt against the Falcons, when Adrian Clayborn whipped fill-in tackle Chaz Green for five of his six sacks. That was enough for the Cowboys to push Byron Bell into the lineup against the Eagles, but while Bell didn’t single-handedly bring the offense to a halt, he was no Smith. Philly harassed Dak Prescott into three interceptions and four sacks Sunday night, and while Bell appeared to be responsible for only one of those sacks, it was the most important one: Derek Barnett got past Bell and stripped Prescott, with Nigel Bradham returning it for a touchdown.

Fantasy intel for all 32 NFL teams ahead of Week 9

Below are notes covering each of the NFL’s 32 teams from a fantasy perspective. Use these tidbits to make the best waiver-wire, trade and lineup decisions for Week 9. Be sure to check back each week of the season for a new version of the Fantasy 32.

This is a special regression alert edition of Fantasy 32 in which I will examine a player from each team who is a strong candidate to score touchdowns at a higher or lower rate during the second half of the season.

Why? Put your right hand down, you had your best games 鈥? He rattled off the three games in college that he did that鈥攈is sack numbers and everything 鈥?Commitment to Excellence wasn’t just something he had copy written. It was, legit, his life.

The NBA is back鈥攁nd there’s no shortage of storylines and drama entering the new year. From LeBron and Embiid to Lonzo and KD, here are 72 reasons to watch the 2017-18 season.

Jake Fisher Youth Jersey With the NBA tipping off its 72nd season on Tuesday, here are 72 reasons to watch in 2017鈥?18, in case a budding Warriors dynasty, a LeBron James contract year, and a compelling new pack of superstar-laden challengers wasn’t enough for you.

The NBA’s offensive boom shows no signs of abating. Last season, the average NBA team scored 105.6 PPG, Sam Dekker Jersey the highest mark since 1991 and well, well above the 96.3 PPG that teams averaged just five years ago.

Likewise, two of the first four in 2015 didn’t make the final group. LSU debuted at No. 2 and wound up ranked 20th. Last year, eventual title combatants Alabama and Clemson held down the first top two spots, but the second pair — Michigan and Texas A&M — both missed the playoff. A&M ended up losing the Texas Bowl to Kansas State.

“What happened in Turn 3 was over the line. It’s just unnecessary.”

The fans cheered Elliott throughout his postrace interviews.

“These fans have been coming here from a long time, and they know when somebody gets wrecked and somebody has a nice fight for the lead, and that wasn’t one,” Elliott said.

Elliott probably gained a ton of fans Sunday night. And a lot of respect from his team.

According to ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, New York marked the fifth game in what is Cleveland’s easiest six-game stretch of the season.

Kevin Love, who logged his sixth double-double in the Cavs’ seven games with 22 points and 11 rebounds against the Knicks, said teams are treating Cleveland the way that Cleveland used to treat opponents.

Verlander has 11 postseason wins but dropped to 0-4 in the Series with Detroit and Houston, which acquired him from the Tigers on Aug. 31 to win on nights like this. He allowed just one baserunner before Austin Barnes singled leading off the sixth. Verlander bounced a pitch that hit Utley on the front of his right foot, and Taylor sent a 97 mph fastball down the right-field line as Barnes came home. Seager followed with a sacrifice fly to the warning track, a ball that likely would have landed in the pavilion in last week’s hot air.

The Golden Knights are proving that NHL players are a proud bunch and that, if nothing else, feeling ticked off about being cast adrift by your former team can result in one heckuva run for an expansion team.

Another similarity between that Oklahoma State team and this West Virginia one: The 2010 Cowboys had an older, mature, married quarterback in Brandon Weeden, just as the Mountaineers have with Will Grier.ducks-090

the Ajayi-Blount backfield promises to be one of the toughest in the league.

Wentz channels his inner Kirk Cousins – The Eagles struggled to move the ball for much of their 33-10 win over Rigoberto Sanchez Youth jersey the 49ers. However, channeling his inner Kirk Cousins, quarterback Carson Wentz delivered a satisfied assessment of the big picture. Being 7-1, we like that, we like that, Wentz said.

I love that he’s doing that on his own, Kerr said. It shows how much he cares, it shows how much he’s matured over the years. This was something he came up with. He’s gone for it.

Green was fined $25,000 for his actions in a fight with Washington’s Bradley Beal on Friday night that led to both players being ejected. Beal received a $50,000 fine. Also, Wizards F Kelly Oubre Jr. was fined $15,000 for entering the altercation.

I’m still watching that video over again trying to figure out what I did wrong, Green said.

Mens Clay Harbor Jersey That’s why pairing him with Blount makes sense, even though they have similar styles. Blount, 30, is on a one-year deal. Ajayi’s rookie contract runs through 2018, and he can be in Philly well beyond that if everything works out.

In the meantime, the Ajayi-Blount backfield promises to be one of the toughest in the league. According to Pro Football Focus, Ajayi ranks first (81) and Blount third (69) in most forced missed tackles since 2016.

Overall, Ajayi has rushed for 1,924 yards and nine touchdowns in 31 games for Miami since being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Boise State.

The NBA showcases its bold-faced names, accompanied by swollen entourages, camera crews and signature sneakers. Ball is the latest to join the glittering ranks. But the guts of the league are still grinders like Beverley, a second-round pick of the Lakers, who traded him the next day to the Heat. Not for a person, Beverley said. For cash.

Jones and Walker-Kimbrough graduated and went to the WNBA.

Aldon Smith Kids Jersey Entering this season, Ohio State is picked to win the Big Ten, with Maryland to finish Dennis Schroder Jersey second. The Terps’ high projection comes despite their losing so much from a 32-3 team: their top three scorers (Brionna Jones, Shatori Walker-Kimbrough, Destiny Slocum), top rebounder (Jones) and assists leader (Slocom). Slocum transferred to Oregon State.

Wisconsin actually held off on offering him until his senior year because the staff had some skepticism about his top-end speed, but that changed after the track season in the spring of his junior year, when his 100-meter dash time jumped from 10.9 to a blazing 10.4 and he began to see the football dividends of increasing his stride frequency and developing his leg strength.

A long season is nearing an end, and the Astros and Dodgers are ready for the next plot twist. It’s Kershaw vs. Keuchel in Game 5. May the best left-hander win.

Before the snap, Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu (SS) walks down to the strong side of the formation over the tight end with the free safety (FS) aligned in the deep middle of the field. Plus, with the cornerback showing a press look outside versus Hogan (yellow circle), this tells Garoppolo that he has the matchup on the fade route. The QB audibles at the line, holds the free safety during the drop (with his eyes) and targets Hogan over the top of the defense. Yes, the cornerback drops the coverage, but I’m more focused on the young quarterback recognizing the matchup and making a check to expose it for a score.

Through the six quarters of work that Garoppolo put on tape, there are plenty of positive examples of the Patriots quarterback making the proper pre-snap read. It’s clear he has a high-level football IQ, but just like the pro evaluators who are putting a grade on Garoppolo, we also have to highlight when the QB missed open targets based on his pre-snap reads.

Opportunistic Bills rout sloppy Raiders, 34-14

Walton said Ball has shown the ability to not let hard losses stick with him, and to move on to the next game. Teammate Jordan Clarkson said he was in Ball’s ear during the game on Saturday, trying to keep the rookie aggressive.

Clarkson said it is easy to forget that Ball just turned 20 on Friday.

It is a process for him, Clarkson said. Other day, I was at his birthday party; he rented Scott Wedgewood Womens Jersey Dave & Buster’s out, it was pretty cool. He’s [only] 20, he’s learning. It will be all right for him.

While the Balls had a good time on Sunday — Clarkson said Ball’s younger brother, LaMelo, was actually whopping my ass in pop-a-shot — the Lakers’ No. 2 overall pick said he will continue to shoulder the responsibility for how the Lakers play and win.
