The New Orleans Saints cruised into Week 12 with eight straight wins, but they hit a speed bump in the form of the Los Angeles Rams.

The Rams held a rather comfortable 23-10 lead early in the fourth quarter before Drew Brees started his comeback, driving the Saints down to the 5-yard line. The drive stalled at the goal line, however, and the Saints faced a decision with fourth-and-goal from the 3 and 10:50 left in the game.

Going for it makes a lot of sense on several levels. For one, they have Brees. Michael Jordan Jersey For another, Kamara and Mark Ingram have been tearing it up on the ground most of the season. Even if New Orleans misses the touchdown, it’d still leave the Rams pinned back on their own end zone. There was time to get a quick stop on defense and favorable field position on the next possession.

Instead of taking his chances, Sean Payton kicked the easy field goal. This dropped the score from 23-10 to 23-13 锟斤拷 still a two-possession game, essentially the same spot the Saints were in before. A field goal in that situation didn’t help their chances of winning, and they couldn’t play the field position game with a kickoff coming up.

In an omen to the strangeness of the game, the referees called a foul on the opening tip.

Here’s where I’m going to veer off. I’m not totally buying into the Islanders yet (though the mounting evidence in the form of ridiculous Mathew Barzal highlights, and Anders Lee and John Tavares goal totals, makes me want to say otherwise.) The Metropolitan Division is too muddled — six teams are within five points — to draw any conclusions. The Devils and Islanders have both been pleasant overachievers two months in, but how can we trust either of these teams with the veteran Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers lurking behind within two points? I’m especially wary of the Devils because of their youth and troublesome possession numbers.

Game Mens Joe Morgan Jersey Matt Ryan and Julio Jones survived a bad game against the Saints thanks to the running game (with Devonta Freeman) and the defense (with Deion Jones coming to life at the right time). Although things have been tricky with Steve Sarkisian, at least Ryan is free of Dirk Koetter. That’s not the case for Jameis Winston Sergei Fedorov Authentic Jersey in Tampa. Jon Gruden being in the building Monday won’t make things easier for Koetter, either. The Bucs have three chances to play big South spoiler, but they’ll start with strike one.

That was the first time I saw that, said Beal, a six-year veteran. Why was it a foul versus a re-jumped ball or just their ball?

The Clippers have won 15 of their last 18 against the Wizards dating to March 18, 2009, including 10 in a row at Staples Center, which is the second-longest active home winning streak against a single opponent.

Jones is both a talented runner and receiver and even has some ability reminiscent of another USC back in Reggie Bush, only this time Jones is coming into an NFL much more capable of making use of the ability.

The junior could be used very similarly to Christian McCaffrey with the Panthers next season and will make an immediate impact at the NFL level.

Kevin Seifert, national NFL writer: Minnesota Vikings. This is a team that won eight consecutive games before losing Sunday by one score on the road to the Panthers, themselves a likely playoff team. The Vikings suffered a few injuries to keep an eye on, most notably to tight end Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and along their offensive line, but most of their key pieces remain intact. And, in terms of playoff positioning, keep in mind that they’ll play two of their final three games at home against the Bengals (5-8) and Bears (4-9).

Giants co-owner John Mara referred to Monday’s tear-down of the team brain trust with four games left as a complete overhaul, and he described the 2017 season as spiraling out of control.

One of the questions in his press conference referred to the Giants way. This, definitely, is not it, and has never been it, not for decades, since Mara’s father was in charge.

At 11-5, the Seahawks would be guaranteed to at least host a wild-card playoff game as the No. 4 seed and NFC West champions. They have a fair shot to jump to No. 3, too. The key there is the Saints (9-4) or Panthers (9-4) winning the South at 11-5. In that scenario, the Seahawks would have a better conference record at 9-3, vs. 8-4 for those two other teams, assuming the Saints beat the lowly AFC Jets Lance Stephenson Authentic Jersey at home in Week 15. If the Falcons win out to go 11-5 and win that division, then the Seahawks would lose out with the head-to-head tiebreaker.

the Saints earn a fifth straight home win against the Panthers?

In other words, Ohtani actually created a real-world valuation of what it means to play in the majors, against the very, very best players in the world. The value of it is not less than $90 million. And, keep in mind, he would have come to the majors in two years anyway. But waiting for that opportunity was the risk he wasn’t willing to take. Risking his first nine-figure fortune for an extra four years, sure. Risking his chance to play in the majors, at not just the highest level but the only truly high level, no way. He has reached the top of Maslow’s pyramid, and the only path to self-actualization for a great baseball player in the year 2017 goes through the majors. This, I would argue, is Major League Baseball’s greatest asset.

The Vikings are trying to pull off a sweep of the Rams, Falcons and Panthers in a four-week span, the last two on the road. If they do, they’ll have the kind of resume Ohio State and Alabama would envy. While the drumbeat for Case Keenum is not undeserved, it’s past time the defense (which held the Rams and Falcons to single digits) got its due credit for this run. Cam Newton could use Greg Olsen this week, because his absence last week against the Saints was glaring.

The Eagles excel defensively against the run. They’ve allowed only four rushing touchdowns, tied for the fewest in the NFL. But that’s all right for the Seahawks because they don’t run the ball. Russell Wilson has been their most potent rushing threat this season.

Wilson and tight end Jimmy Graham have finally formed a connection. The former Saints star has eight touchdown receptions already this season after hauling in the same number the last two years combined.

Playing in Seattle is always tough for visitors, but the Eagles are rolling and should continue their winning streak this week.

By arriving Womens Solomon Hill Jersey two days ahead of the game, the Heat had a chance to know the city but it came with a price because they struggled early in the game with the altitude. Mexico City’s 7,350 feet above sea level is at a far higher elevation than Denver — the NBA’s highest venue at 5,280 feet.

After missing his first four 3-point tries, Thompson hit from deep in the final 30 seconds of the first half as the Warriors led 59-47 at the break.

The Giants are coming off a very surprising win over Kansas City last weekend, and despite a pretty ugly performance by both teams, New York came away with their third win of the season. After putting up a head-scratching 12-9 score, the Giants were lucky that their defense forced three interceptions against Alex Smith and the Chiefs, or they’d probably still be sitting with only two-wins on the year.

When Miami center Kelly Olynyk got into foul trouble, Adebayo stepped up. Adebayo, a rookie out of Kentucky, was 5 for 6 from the field and also contributed four rebounds and two blocked shots.

Their fight at practice left Mirotic with facial fractures, causing him to miss the first 23 games. Portis served an eight-game suspension.

But the two have played well together the past two games.

We need to give the credit to (coach Fred Hoiberg), Mirotic said. Fred is the one who is making us play. He’s the guy who is calling the plays for us and putting us in the right spots to play.

If we play like that, we can beat any team in this league, Honka said. We just have to keep going and keep up the good work.

New York generated very little offensive pressure for the first two periods. J.T. Miller had a breakaway opportunity at 8:46 of the second, but came up empty.

Yakupov, a six-year NHL veteran, is in his first season with the Avalanche. He has just 10 points in 26 games this season.

I like what some other guys are doing better, Bednar told the Denver Post.

Colorado has its own share of younger players, such as Sam Girard. The rookie defenseman has a goal and two assists in 15 games for the Avalanche after he produced a goal and two assists in five games for the Nashville Predators earlier this season. He was acquired in the three-team trade that sent Matt Duchene to the Ottawa Senators.

It’s a process. Authentic Jon Singleton Jersey It’s my rookie year, he told the Denver Post. When I am on the ice, I try to do my best.

The Colts aren’t playing well at 3-8, and coach Chuck Pagano is likely watching his time in Indy dwindle away. So why not immortalize yourself with a nonsensical press conference moment?

Pagano did just that Monday with a Groundhog Day metaphor that went off the rails and ended up in the Atlantic Ocean, sort of.

When asked if the feeling of blowing a halftime lead is starting to become a mental issue for his team, Pagano took a reference to the iconic Bill Murray film and ran with it. He started with a lovely rendition of Sonny and Cher’s I Got You Babe and eventually talked about how nor’easters push hurricanes off the coast and back into the ocean.

Roger Goodell has a new contract as NFL commissioner, report says

Yes. Although Elliott accepted his suspension, the NFLPA could have continued to fight the NFL in court. The union’s battle with the league was always about the collective bargaining agreement, not about whether Elliott was innocent or guilty.

But the NFLPA dropped its lawsuit once Elliott decided he would serve his six-game suspension without any further appeals.

This week around the NBA, players wore a few pairs of sneakers well outside the norm, including ones that held deeper meaning once they hit the hardwood.

Kyrie Irving once again unveiled a pair of his Kyrie 3 model showcasing a personal backstory. This pair paid tribute to the Best Buddies Foundation he’s worked with since entering the league. Irving has given his time to partake in charity walks and has also launched basketball programs to encourage challenged kids. Now his sneakers can help to raise even more awareness for the foundation.

While he might not be a household name like Irving, Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie also made waves for his unique sneakers this week — a self-endorsed pair of basketball shoes he designed himself and had manufactured in China.

The Bills deserve immense credit for making four straight Super Bowls — a Herculean task. But it’s the dubious distinction of four straight Super Bowl losses that everyone remembers, and no play symbolized that run of almosts more than Scott Norwood’s missed field goal in Super Bowl XXV on Jan. 27, 1991, the first of the four appearances.orioles_043

West Virginia quickly responded with a 15-2 run that took the rest of the quarter and was bookended with buckets from Muldrow. Ray sank a 3-pointer during the go-ahead run and the Mountaineers protected the advantage the rest of the way.

Carter led the Texas A&M with 20 points. Bryan Anger Jersey Khaalia Hillsman added 13 points to go with 10 rebounds, Jasmine Lumpkin had 11 points and Anriel Howard grabbed 12 rebounds for the Aggies, which had won four straight heading into Sunday’s matchup.

Not only was it tough to get the ball, but to have the foot placement so close to the goal line while still staying in bounds was beautiful.

With Dak Prescott and the Cowboys’ offense struggling of late, any kind of field-position advantage the special teams can give the defense is huge.

Texas: The Longhorns’ roster has plenty of depth, and it’s about to get even better when Joyner Holmes, the 2016 Big 12 freshman of the year, returns to the team on Dec. 23 following an NCAA rules violation that was revealed in July. Holmes averaged 12.1 points and a team-best 8.2 rebounds and played a big role in the Longhorns advancing to a third straight Sweet 16. She will return to an offense that’s already averaging 93 points a game.

“With Joyner coming back, we will put her back in the lineup,” Atkins said. “It will be a lot of fun.”

Giants and Cowboys have to play a 1 p.m. game in December for the first time since 2005

Dallas hasn’t gotten better, either. A pass rush that looked dominant early in the season has regressed. Dallas has 28 sacks on the season, good for 14th in league, but the Cowboys have landed only one sack in their last three games.

Dallas is missing star running back Ezekiel Elliott as he serves his six-game suspension for domestic violence allegations made against him in 2016. And injuries to linebacker Sean Lee, left tackle Tyron Smith, and right guard Zack Martin have hurt Dallas on both sides of the ball.

These certainly aren’t last year’s Cowboys and Giants, so it’s easy to see why the league would flex a Giants vs. Cowboys game to the 1 p.m. slate. But it’s been a long time since that’s happened in December.
