Rivers, Chargers could challenge Patriots

Now comes Rivers, who had two 300-yard games in the 0-4 start but has thrown for 258, 268 and 183 in the three wins.

And, of course, Rivers comes in joined by tight end Antonio Gates, always a headache for opposing defenses.

“Phil is a tremendous player, a great competitor, a really smart player,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday, adding he got to know Rivers while coaching him in a Pro Bowl. “He’s a real football guy like Tom (Brady), like Peyton Manning, guys like that. They’re just deep into it.

2.5 percent. Thursday’s win over the Chiefs might have saved the Raiders’ season, but there’s still a lot of work left to do. They won’t play in Oakland again until after Thanksgiving, and they currently have the third-toughest remaining strength of schedule. Good luck with that.

The first three meetings with the AFC East resulted in three straight losses to the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and Patriots, each in more embarrassing fashion than the one before.

“Whatever plays are called are called,” Lewis said.

It seems to be a fairly safe bet that offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, who injected some life into a unit that was awful before he took over for Ken Zampese after Week 2, will put the ball in the hands of Mixon and Green pretty early.

A slow start in this one is the last thing the Bengals need. With a three-game road trip coming up in which they will be underdogs in every game (Jacksonville, Tennessee, Cincinnati), they can’t afford to flub this one.chargers_006

Martavis Bryant Jersey reportedly told he will be inactive Sunday vs. Lions

P. J. Williams Womens Jersey
In games he’s played in full, Jones has been on the field for 87 percent of the team’s pass plays (up from 85 percent last year) and is handling a gigantic 29 percent target share (up from 27 percent last year). Stay the course with Jones — he’s still a strong WR1 play.
Willie Young Jersey Men's Adidas Phoenix Suns #7 Kevin Johnson Swingman Purple Road NBA Jersey
Javorius Allen paced the Ravens in both targets (11) and receptions (eight) during the Ravens’ Week 7 loss at Minnesota. Allen is now up to sixth among running backs in receptions (31), though he’s been limited to a woeful 3.8 yards per target. That’s worst among the 34 backs with at least 12 catches this season. Allen’s rushing efficiency also hasn’t been good (3.7 yards per carry), but the volume has allowed him the 15th-most fantasy points among running backs. Allen’s role will keep him in the PPR flex discussion as long as Danny Woodhead is sidelined.

NFL appeals Womens Dennis Eckersley Jersey officer James Thrash heard Marshawn Lynch’s appeal Monday for his one-game suspension for physical contact with an official, according to sources.

I said the other night I was disappointed that we had a player leave the bench … don’t leave the bench area, Del Rio said.

Peters — who views Lynch as a big brother — told Thrash that Lynch was trying to calm him and the situation.

Lynch also argued that nine other players, including Aaron Donald and Taylor Lewan last season, have made contact with an official and none have been suspended, so there is no precedent for a one-game suspension.

Oakland (3-4) will visit Buffalo to play the Bills on Sunday. Tate’s scores came after post-catch runs of 5 and 38 yards. Tate’s 0.8 OTD is actually well short of his 2016 pace (5.0 OTD in 16 games) when he managed four touchdowns. Let this serve as a reminder that Tate remains a very poor source of touchdowns, which will limit his upside in the second half.

Tevin Coleman Jersey is the second back in Atlanta’s masterful duo of running backs.

He often gets treated like a much lesser back and second-fiddle, but the dude really is a beast. Indiana University 锟斤拷 his alma mater 锟斤拷 is 1) a basketball school and 2) Running Back U, shouts out to Jordan Howard.

On this touchdown run against the Dolphins, he literally said goodbye to a Dolphins defender’s helmet before reaching across the goal line for a touchdown:

As a person who thoroughly enjoys disrespectful plays in sports, this is up there for me for most disrespectful play of the NFL season.

The Browns roster is no doubt terrible, but that’s in part to having a carousel of terrible quarterbacks.

Mens Ken Boyer Jersey Neither their means nor their ends have been justified.

Browns Chief Strategy Officer Paul DePodesta, who never worked in football prior to being hired as Cleveland’s front office #2, justified passing on Wentz because they were convinced he would never be even a top 20 quarterback:

Authentic Womens David Savard Jersey I think the hardest part, and where we have to stay the most disciplined, as much as you want a player, you can’t invent him if he doesn’t Ryan Murray Jersey exist. In a given year, there may be two or three NFLready quarterbacks at the college level. In another year, there literally may be zero. There just may be not be anybody in that year who’s good enough to be a top 20 quarterback in the NFL.

With the win, the Chiefs improved to 4-0, while the loss for Washington dropped the team to 2-2. The injuries for both will be concerning, but Monday was a game between two good football teams and both can feel good about their chances in the remainder of 2017.

49ers hope they have their quarterback in C.J. Beathard Jersey

Joel Armia Mens Jersey C.J. Beathard is going to get his chance to audition to be the quarterback of the future for the San Francisco 49ers. After replacing Brian Hoyer in Week 6, the rookie showed enough that 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says Beathard will be the team’s starter moving forward.

It wasn’t just Trubisky’s first NFL win. It was the Bears’ first road win since 2015. And while Trubisky’s stats look underwhelming, he did just enough to get his team the victory, and may have saved John Fox’s job in the process.

Trevathan’s appeal was heard by Derrick Brooks, who was appointed jointly by the NFL and NFLPA to oversee the situation.

Game Mens Howie Long Jersey The hit on Adams sent the wide receiver to the hospital. Adams’ forward progress had been stopped by Trevathan’s teammates, and Trevathan came in for the hit anyway, lowering his head and making helmet-to-helmet contact with Adams. Adams appeared to be knocked unconscious, and he was carried off the field on a stretcher. He was diagnosed with a concussion and remained hospitalized overnight.

Trevathan was flagged for the hit, and the Bears received a 15-yard penalty. Under the current league rules, Trevathan could have been ejected from the game, and it would have been justified in this case.

But Trevathan will serve a one-game suspension for the hit, so he’ll miss the Bears’ Monday night matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

Adams is recovering quickly. He reportedly could be cleared to play for the Packers’ Week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Colts vs. Titans live stream: How to watch ‘Monday Night Football’ online

The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts both think they’re better than their 2-3 records indicate, and both will try and get to .500 when they face each other on Monday Night Football. The game will begin at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN (live streaming via WatchESPN).

Tennessee is trying to recover from a very rough patch. They lost, 16-10, to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5, and before that were completely annihilated at the hands of the Houston Texans. They allowed the Texans to put up 57 points, and they’ll be feeling that one for awhile.

The AFC South is a weird division that could go in a number of directions. The Jacksonville Jaguars lead it at 3-2, while the Texans and Titans have both flashed moments of high-level play. The division winner could wind up being 8-8, or they could win 11 games. A lot is up in the air right now.

Moving along to Kansas City and the Washington offensive line. It’s been featured a bunch in the first three weeks and it continues here. First, right guard Brandon Scherff gives Justin Houston some chin music on a slide protection. This is O-line porn.

Next, Trent Williams, Kirk Cousins’ blind side protector, gets a blind side block on a bootleg by Cousins. Trent goes down to check his gap on the zone run, then bounces out to protect Cousins. Zombo has no idea what’s coming.

My favorite part of these weekly videos is finding excellent blocks by skill position players. And we found another one by Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The last time, JuJu knocked down a safety in the hole of a counter run. This past weekend, he helps a tight end knock down a defensive end on a goal-line run. This is beautiful from a receiver. I love it

Finally, we end in Dallas with the Los Angeles Rams. I can’t see the number on this receiver, but bravo, sir. Long runs/passes often turn into touchdowns when receivers throw blocks like this. The Dallas defender had no idea what was coming.steelers_001

Drake made sure he was by Odell Beckham Jr’ Jersey side in the hospital

Drake visiting OBJ might seem random, but the two are exceedingly close. The pair lived together last year and became closer during a time Beckham Jr. told GQ that he needed to shrink his circle to reach his goals. Drake assisted with that, serving almost like a life coach to OBJ, as well as giving him a place to stay at a time Beckham Jr. was in the third year or his rookie contract, and not making close to what he deserved.

Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons: While 11.92 fantasy points might not seem like a disastrous total, Ryan’s fantasy managers were surely expecting better from him in a game fresh off the bye week, at home, as his 71.0 percent start rate in ESPN leagues (fifth highest among quarterbacks) attests. It also gave him four consecutive games beneath 15 fantasy points, the first time he has endured a streak that long within a single season since 2015 Weeks 12-16 and only the fifth time in his nine-year career that he has had a streak at least that long within a single season. Fortunately for Ryan, he now draws a pair of extremely favorable matchups, albeit in road games, visiting the Patriots (Week 7) and Jets (Week 8). He’ll need a quick rebound in order to keep earning fantasy starts.

Fournette stiff-armed one Steelers defender before waving at Mike Mitchell to bring his best shot at him.

Fournette would later close out the game with a 90-yard rushing touchdown. He had himself a game.

Game Youth Marcus Mariota Jersey Fournette finished the game with 181 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries.

He’s been quite honest about how he feels about the game since he got to the NFL.

It’s a lot slower than I really thought, Fournette said after Jacksonville’s 31-24 preseason win over New England in August. That’s how I’ve been since I first got into the NFL. A lot of people were like, ‘It’s going to be fast.’ But by me playing in the SEC that kind of helped me a lot. I think to me it was really easy.

Browns’ DeShone Kizer Jersey: Being benched ‘sparked my competitive juices’

The Browns benching of DeShone Kizer did not sit well with the rookie quarterback.

The shocking results of Week 6 have the NFL power rankings all shook up for yet another week. Just when you think you know a team, that’s when it won’t be as good or as bad as you think it is.

There are no more undefeated teams after the Chiefs fell to the Steelers, but they still are the team that defeated the league’s only other one-loss team, the Eagles.
Authentic Youth Mark Stone Jersey
Kansas City and Philadelphia are the easy choices for the top, but behind them, the three powerhouses of preseason predictions — New England, Pittsburgh and Seattle — are making their moves.

I am not trying to invoke the pain and trauma of our ancestors in a hyperbolic comparison. When I write slave, I am not using it in the narrow sense of the mid-Atlantic holocaust perpetrated against African people. I’m using it in the correct sense. I’m using it according to the definition of the word. I’m using it according to every definition of the word.

All of a sudden, the Eagles are the new favorites in the conference. And it’s not even that close. Philadelphia has a 45 percent chance of entering the postseason as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, dwarfing the main challengers in the Vikings (15 percent) and Seahawks (14 percent). The Eagles also have the best shot to reach the Super Bowl (31 percent) of any team in the conference.
Malik McDowell Womens Jersey
What’s fueling the Eagles is the obvious: Carson Wentz. The former North Dakota State quarterback was treated like a rising star after last season despite largely playing poorly. But this time, the breakout is legitimate. Wentz is third in Total QBR, trailing only other neophyte signal-callers in Deshaun Watson and Dak Prescott.

Aaron Rodgers Jersey could miss rest of season with broken collarbone

The Packers and Vikings were scoreless five minutes into Sunday’s game when the Packers saw the one thing they dread the most.

Aaron Rodgers remained on the turf at U.S. Bank Stadium following a second-down throw.

After being carted off the field and taken to the locker room for further evaluation, the team later announced that Rodgers had been ruled out for the rest of the game and could even miss the remainder of the season with a broken collarbone.

We have reviewed video tape of the incident and have identified the perpetrator, Panthers executive director of risk management Lance Emory said in a release Friday. We are working with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department to pursue charges to the fullest extent of the law.
Game Youth New York Yankees Jersey
The Carolina Panthers are committed to a fan-friendly and family-friendly stadium experience. The behavior exhibited by the perpetrator is unacceptable and will not be condoned at Bank of America Stadium.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said on a conference call Friday morning that the league was aware of the incident and in contact with Panthers security.

We take all of these very seriously, Lockhart said, per NFL Media.

Hunt is in competition with Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson for Rookie of the Year honors and Watson did his part Sunday. Watson threw for three touchdowns in a 33-17 victory over the winless Browns. He now has 15 touchdown passes to set a new record for most TD passes through six weeks.

New Cardinals running back Adrian Peterson ran for 134 yards in the 38-33 over the Bucs. It was the first 100-yard game for Peterson since Week 16 of the 2015 season and 53 more yards than he had in four games with the Saints.

Exum, Jazz still unclear on injury severity

Dante Exum’s return to the Utah Jazz remains a mystery with coach Quin Snyder admitting he still does not know if his Australian point guard will play this season.

Exum suffered last week what could be the second season-ending injury of his short NBA career when he drove to the basket, collided with Phoenix Suns forward TJ Warren and damaged his shoulder in a pre-season game.

Jazz guard Dante Exum, who averaged 6.2 points last season, suffered a separated left shoulder and ligament damage and could miss the season, sources told ESPN.

Jazz point guard Dante Exum was taken to a hospital after Friday’s preseason game against the Suns for MRI tests on his injured left shoulder.
“I know they are in the process of evaluating him and planning a course of action, but we’ll get him back as soon as we can,” Snyder told reporters before the Jazz played the Los Angeles Lakers in a pre-season game on Tuesday in LA.

For Boston, an extension might ultimately hinge on what the market sets for Smart’s value. It seems unlikely Boston would be willing to pay Smart the sort of money Gary Harris got from the Denver Nuggets (4 years, $84 million), but there’s a more palpable number for a Celtics team that’s set to live above the cap for the foreseeable future. Staring at an eventual climb back into the luxury tax (and, further out, repeater penalties), the Celtics must still be responsible with their spending, especially considering that many rivals won’t have much to spend on the open market this summer.

Regardless of whether the two sides come to an agreement before next week’s deadline, there’s an obvious urgency to Smart’s play this preseason, and a clear desire to take a step forward this year.

Busted: Roger Goodell Jersey wife creates fake Twitter account to defend husband

As if things couldn’t get worse for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, it turns out his wife has been running a secret Twitter account to defend her husband against the criticism of media outlets.

The Wall Street Journal did some investigating to get to the bottom of who was running the account @forargument, which also followed four accounts connected to Goodell’s daughters’ high school. That was the clue that tipped WSJ off that Jane Skinner Goodell was behind it.

The complaint also asks the National Labor Relations Board to investigate preemptively in order to prevent illegal firings of players. The chief organizer of the Local 100 said Jones is threatening and intimidating his workers with his stance.

It’s a threat and you can’t threaten someone’s job for concerted activity, Wade Rathke told the Star-Telegram. The point is he is threatening anybody and everybody. We are trying to send Mr. Jones a message that there is a law here. The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker. You can’t just roll over someone’s rights when they are a worker.

A spokesman for the NFL said Tuesday the complaint is irrelevant because no Cowboys player has been suspended or fired. He also admitted that the entire thing has become a point of aggravation with those in charge of the league.

I think everyone at this point is frustrated by this situation, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart told the Star-Telegram. The commissioner and the owners do want the players to stand.
