Pulling out close games late is the next step for Jacksonville.

Hilton’s apology to the Colts offensive linemen: I have their back. I love them to death and I was wrong. I’m always against that and I go out and do it, so 100 percent I messed up. It’s on me. I’m sorry for that and I’m leader and those guys look up to me and I stabbed them in the back, so for me I’m sorry about that. I’ll approach them individually one on one and just let them know I was a 100 percent dead-ass wrong.

The Jaguars Authentic Vincent Rey Jersey haven’t finished a season outscoring opponents in the first quarter since 2007, the last time they had a winning record and made the playoffs. They trailed at the end of the first quarter in seven games last season and 10 in 2016. They’ve been behind after the first quarter just twice this season.

When you go through the week, you have a sense of what you would like or think that the players can do well and what you want to do in those situations, Marrone said. During the course of the week, you’re going to practice those plays. You’re probably practicing them pretty much in the order that you would probably want to call them.

Will Lutz Kids Jersey I really think if you are really focused in and really paying attention to what we’re doing during the week, then you are going to know exactly what we’re going to be able to call on Sunday.

With Terrance West on the shelf with a calf injury, Collins is Baltimore’s top running back and might have earned the job as the full-time starter.

Roberto Aguayo gets 2nd chance with Panthers. Please let him kick against the Bucs

Kicker Roberto Aguayo will get another chance in the NFL. The Panthers signed the former second-round pick to their practice squad, the team announced on Wednesday.

But Aguayo has been inconsistent throughout his career. After connecting on all four of his field goal attempts in a 2016 Week 11 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs, Aguayo took home the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week award. However, he only completed 71 percent of his field goal attempts in 2016.

Both Kizer and Kevin Hogan have gotten starts for the Browns so far in this 0-7 season, but turnovers pushed Jackson to consider looking elsewhere. Cody Kessler came into the game and went 10 of 19 for 121 yards and one interception in the Browns’ 12-9 loss to the Titans.

What can we expect from DeShone Kizer? Kizer was understood to be a raw prospect when he was drafted by the Browns in the second round of the 2017 NFL draft. Still, he won the starting job in the preseason.

Thursday’s move shuts down the quarterback for at least eight weeks, but there’s a good chance Palmer won’t be back this season. It remains to be seen if the 14-year NFL veteran will play for the Cardinals in 2018 after mulling over a decision last offseason whether he’d play in 2017. He remains under contract through 2018.

Although the 37-year-old could be back next season, there’s a chance the Palmer-Larry Fitzgerald-Bruce Arians era could be over desert.

Palmer suffered the injury during the second quarter of the Cardinals’ 33-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in London on Sunday.

Panthers kicker Graham Gano was on the team’s injury report last week with knee soreness, but was able to play this past Sunday against the Bears, getting the team’s only three points. However, in dealing with the injury, the Panthers wanted some insurance, and liked what they saw from Aguayo after working him out on Tuesday.

LT Duane Brown Jersey ends holdout with Texans, report says

Aaron Jones out-touched Ty Montgomery 20 to five in Week 7 and has now out-snapped the incumbent lead back by a margin of 81 to 27 during Green Bay’s past two games. Granted, Montgomery is still recovering from a rib injury, but Jones has simply been the better player this season. The fifth-round rookie is averaging 5.6 YPC on 62 attempts, whereas Montgomery sits at 3.1 YPC on 60 tries. Jones also has been significantly better after initial contact (2.3 vs. 1.8). The loss of Aaron Rodgers and Jones’ limited work as a receiver (five catches for 17 yards on the year) limit his appeal, but the rookie appears to have full control of lead-back duties and will thus exit the team’s Week 8 bye as a decent RB2 play.

Marquise Goodwin has inexplicably yet to score a touchdown this season, but the speedster has now reached 60 yards during three of his past five games, which includes 80-plus yards during two of his past three outings. Goodwin sports a 3.1 OTD (31st in the NFL), and the gap between his touchdown total and OTD is the largest in the NFL. Only eight players have exceeded Goodwin’s six end zone targets.
Limited Youth Mark Giordano Jersey
Doctors believe the Packers quarterback could resume throwing in six weeks, ESPN reported, citing unidentified league sources.

If he were to make a full recovery and the Packers were able to do their part without him, Rodgers could potentially return at the end of the regular season.

Rodgers broke his right collarbone in the team’s Week 6 loss to the Vikings and was placed on injured reserve Friday, just one day after undergoing surgery to repair the damage. Since NFL players must spend Dexter McCoil Authentic Jersey at least eight weeks on IR, the earliest Rodgers could return is Dec. 17, when the Packers play at Carolina.

Limited Youth Mike Bibby Jersey In the meantime, backup Brett Hundley is slated to get his first NFL start Sunday against the Saints. If he can keep the Packers (4-2) in playoff contention, Rodgers could return to the active roster to lead the postseason push.

Saints’ invigorated defense makes the NFC a more interesting place

The New Orleans defense has been so poor and so pitiful for so long that this Saints team was considered another sweet-and-sour bunch. Sweet 锟斤拷 that’s the offense. Sour 锟紺- that’s the defense.

It became a political issue because of the environment around it. Because the society that we live Julio Urias Youth jersey in doesn’t like a thing like police brutality being pointed out, let alone actually addressed. It treats any attempt to discuss or combat the problem like a virus, converging on it from all sides in an attempt to wipe it out.

So far, the six fires have killed more than 20 people while destroying nearly 100,000 acres of land. 380 people are missing, and 3,500 or more homes and businesses are gone.

In the wake of the destruction that has happened in only a few days, and looks to continue through the rest of this week unless the fires are contained quickly, athletes and teams who call the Bay Area home are donating money or raising funds to help those who have lost their homes, livelihoods, and more.

Jonny Gomes, who played for more than a half dozen MLB teams in his career as well as a club in Japan, was raised in Northern California and is understandably taking the fires hard. He started a GoFundMe to raise money to help victims and included a photo of one of his old schools charred beyond recognition.

Garrett didn’t sound complacent after the game — he’s ready for more.

The Chiefs had something of a tumultuous offseason, with longtime cornerstone players (Jamaal Charles, Dontari Poe, Jeremy Maclin) being shown the door and general manager John Dorsey getting fired just a few weeks before training camp. They drafted Patrick Mahomes in the first round, setting the stage for a potential quarterback controversy with Alex Smith. In the first game of the season, their best defensive player, Eric Berry, suffered a season-ending Achilles tear.

In Week 1 against the Patriots, Reid dialed up a brilliant game plan to knock off the defending champions, unearthing a new star in running back Kareem Hunt and trusting Smith to open up the offense more. The Chiefs carried that momentum into hard-fought wins over the Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Chargers before the important Monday night showdown against Washington.

Garrett didn’t sound complacent after the game — he’s ready for more. I always want more, he said. I always want to make more plays, have more effect on the outcome of the game, but as many as they give me I’ll take and I’m just going to try to do my best to make plays out there.

Outside of Garrett’s performance on Sunday, the Browns have been quite bad this season. Going into Sunday, they were 26th in total offense while having scored just 63 points in four games leading up to Sunday.

However, the Browns haven’t been egregiously bad on defense. They’re 16th in the NFL in total defense and seventh in run defense — and that’s been without Garrett.
Game Kids Patrick Chung Jersey
Authentic Kids Ryan Callahan Jersey If Garrett can help the Browns improve off those initial stats and help them get some wins, then the Browns might be bearable to watch.

NaVorro Bowman signs 1-year deal with Raiders after release from 49ers

Tomorrow I’ll have surgery ending year 12. I’m filled with mixed emotions. I wasn’t able to produce for my team the way I wanted to but this was my greatest year to date. This game has shown me who I really am good and bad. This game has given me the opportunity to grow as a man, father, husband, teammate, leader.. . I’m so thankful for this game.. . The biggest lesson I’ve learned about myself is that Adversity kicks my Ass. I’m proud to say that after 12 years I’ve finally became the man I knew I was suppose to be by confronting Adversity with a Smile.

Agholor’s 1.8 OTD suggests that a return to earth in the scoring department is on tap. He’s worth flex consideration only during bye weeks, at least until he takes on a larger role.

The Oakland Raiders suffered the biggest fall of the week. After loosing to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5, this Oakland team doesn’t look the same from 2016. Oakland is currently on a three-game loosing streak.

The Cleveland Browns, on the other hand, bring up the rear once again after a hard loss to the Jets, who are somehow 3-2. The San Francisco 49ers are near the bottom of each list. They lost in overtime against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5.

Jefferson has returned to practice since breaking his hand, but Richard said the team will need to evaluate him further to determine when he’ll be able to play. Bennett didn’t practice Wednesday because of what the team has called a plantar fascia foot injury, but he said he plans to play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Steelers vs. Chiefs 2017 live stream: Start time, TV schedule, and how to watch online

The Chiefs are the NFL’s last undefeated team behind an explosive offense that can rip off big plays at a moment’s notice. The Steelers, on the other hand, have major questions to answer after failing to score a touchdown in a home loss to the Jaguars. Can Pittsburgh get back on track in a game that promises to be a shootout? The two teams meet at 4:25 p.m. ET and broadcast live on CBS (live stream).

After the Seahawks throw an interception on a trick play, the Rams drive deep into Seahawks territory. On third-and-11, Jared Goff hands off to Tavon Austin, who goes untouched for a 27-yard touchdown. I had hoped that whatever Jeff Fisher-brand Seahawks poison the Rams employed over the last five years would be gone from this Rams team, but apparently not.

I am starving. I haven’t eaten since a late breakfast, and my entry into our small kitchen puts me on the hook for making the kids’ dinner. While I toast a bagel for myself and cook quesadillas for the kids, the Seahawks recover a muffed punt, only to blow easy points by throwing an interception that flips the field position.

First Look podcast, with talent discussion beginning at the 17:32 mark

Several talent agents have been spending the past several weeks telling their sports clients to stick to sports when it comes to their social media feeds.

These conversations took a new importance last week after ESPN suspended anchor Jemele Hill after she made tweets suggesting that NFL fans boycott Dallas Cowboys sponsors — many of whom also buy advertising on ESPN.

Gareon Conley Mens Jersey Hill’s tweet came after news reports that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would not play athletes who knelt during the national anthem.

Youth Nick Ahmed Jersey My advice to my clients who work for a content company is that social media is not the right area to voice opinions other than ones that you’re paid to give, said Sandy Montag, president and CEO of The Montag Group, whose client list includes Bob Costas, James Brown, Mike Tirico and Scott Van Pelt.

More than a year after Colin Kaepernick first took a knee to protest police brutality, we now find ourselves living in climate of conflict whenever and wherever the national anthem is played.

We started [kneeling] to raise awareness and to effectuate change. We’re on the path to make the change we think we can make; we are just not there yet.

The players’ union and the league issued a joint statement just before the annual fall owners meetings began.

Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities, the statement said. NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change. We agreed that these are common issues and pledged to meet again to continue this work together.

Joe Robbins seeing his son Quade smile again proved Walton right.

The day after the shooting, Walton initially wondered if the game should be played. But the Lakers coach knew the right thing to do was to play the game and keep things moving forward.
Game Womens Zack Cozart Jersey
At first, I didn’t know what we were going to do, if we were going to come play at all, Walton said. Is it not right to do? I think it’s important that when tragedy like this happens, you don’t live in fear. You’ve got to keep life going, I think a lot of people here love basketball. … They love the Lakers here like it’s their home team. And for them to come in here and just get away for a couple hours is great for them.

The Islanders, meanwhile, had to rally back from a two-goal third period deficit against the Blues to force overtime and earn a point. They headed west feeling much better about goalie Thomas Greiss, who was pulled from a season-opening loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets and finished with 33 saves against the Blues.

His work included a fantastic sliding save early in the third period to rob Vladimir Sobotka of a clean look at the net. Meanwhile, the Islanders will also be looking to get their power play going as they are 0 for 10 to start the season.
Game Mens Ken Boyer Jersey
After the first couple of penalties, we were definitely moving the puck a lot better, getting shots and had a few opportunities and a couple of stuffs we almost had, so it’s right there, said Islanders forward Anders Lee, who scored a late game-tying goal to help force overtime against St. Louis. Once we start getting shots and creating chaos for them, it’s going to open up. Right now, we are trying to make a little bit of the perfect play. We have to work through these kinks.

I think this is an important area for shooting guard and small forward.

Portland hopes to compensate by tightening a defense that sunk to 21st in points allowed per possession last season. They were much stiffer after acquiring Nurkic. They cut their foul rate dramatically, a trend that might be sustainable. Nurkic prefers to hang back against the pick-and-roll, allowing the rest of the Blazers to stick closer to shooters. Fewer rotations mean fewer reaches, bumps, and free enemy points.

Opponents also drilled 41.8 percent of open 3s, the third-highest such mark in the league. That number was somehow even bigger in 2015-16. Something beyond luck is going on, but Portland is due a little good fortune.

“All men are created equal”, in one sense, but all men have different characteristics and qualities. The good leader knows how to handle each individual player. — The Dodger Way To Play Baseball, 1954, by Al Campanis.

Arguably the most balanced tier, I think this is an important area for shooting guard and small forward. Given the aforementioned scarcity the position represents, I want one of these top-11 shooting guards, ending with Gary Harris in this tier. Both Avery Bradley and Victor Oladipo represent great values with what should be surges in minutes and offensive opportunity rates for each on their respective new teams.

It’s fun to be daring at this stage of the draft (think the fifth round and beyond), and few players offer more potential for differentiation than Ben Simmons. There is real risk, given it’s his first foray into the league, but his usage rate and rebounding potential could drive some awesome box scores.

As a key beneficiary of Paul’s presence in Houston, Clint Capela could enjoy a rewarding spike in offensive efficiency and opportunity as the rim-runner in the Lob City mold.tigers_055-115x115
