Jaguars owner’s son celebrates their 1st playoff TD in 10 years with hip thrusts and fist pumps

Posted on by

red_wings_004The Jacksonville Jaguars are in the postseason for the first time in 10 years. After a defensive battle in the first half, they scored their first postseason touchdown since Jan. 12, 2008.

As a top 15 national recruit in ’12, Stefon chose a rebuilding Maryland program over Ohio State and Florida largely so his younger brothers—Mar’Sean, 22, now a safety at UAB, and Trevon, 19, a corner for Alabama—could make the short drive to visit on weekends.

He was serving as finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee under Howard , helping to raise $300 million.He checks with a yardage prop of 75 and a reception prop of 6.I wanted a good start to the to hopefully get an invite.Unfortunately, Brown suffered a -ending injury just eight into his time there, and now attempt to earn his way back to the Lakers Las Vegas for the second year a row.Even though he started off the on a 10-day contract via the New Orleans Pelicans, he eventually made his D-League debut against the Grand Rapids Drive.The NFL ? Jersey from ?is the closest thing to what your heroes are wearing on the field.

Saturday’s wild-card game changed on a hit from Johnathan Cyprien.

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was knocked out of Saturday’s wild-card game at Arrowhead Stadium on a hit from the Titans safety.

Everson Griffen, defensive end, Minnesota. “I would say my high school highlight tape, from Agua Fria High School in Avondale, Ariz.. I got a big house, I got cars. But I appreciate this tape so much, because when I turn on the tape, every time I click it on, it reminds me how much I love football, how hard I had to work to get good at it, and how much fun high school football was.

After, Payton then looked at Andrews and told her, “I told him, we’re good.” McDaniel decided to stay in the game.

That’s how Newton started 2017, with the Panthers rolling out a new approach on offense, asking Newton to get the ball out of his hands more quickly, and Newton spraying throws all over the field. He still misses the occasional layup that makes Panthers fans throw up a little in their mouths, but Newton has also been asked to carry an offense with no semblance of a running game behind a shaky O-line.

All that talk about limiting the hits Cam takes this season, and he’s actually four rushing attempts shy of his career high (132, in 2015). It’s better to burn out than fade away, I suppose.

Sean Payton regrets choke gesture at Falcons’ Devonta Freeman

Posted on by

Sean Payton regrets the choke gesture he directed toward Devonta Freeman.

Ahead of the NFC South rematch Sunday, the Saints coach admitted he lost is composure when the teams previously met at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Dec. 7 and wrongly took it out on the Falcons running back.

“Listen, the mistake I made that night was letting my emotions get the best of me,” Payton said, via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It’s the same thing that we talk about with our players all of the time. It wasn’t good and I felt like as that game went on, it even affected me in calling plays. I’ve got to better that way.

I definitely believe that this deal is being considered by the Canucks but only after Kane’s fate is decided.Over those seven he made of 17 passing attempts and 33 rushing attempts.From 3, surged ahead to triumph 8 and book his spot the final against Gerwen.Adams is a .270 career hitter, but he hasn’t hit for as much power as the club wanted him to do, which is why Matt Carpenter has become a first baseman.We you @RealPFielder28 great person and an amazing player thanks for teaching all of us great things!

The veteran right-hander didn’t walk or fan a batter this one.Facebook logo Twitter logo.Goff accepted the offer: Let’s just forget that tweet happened …He was a great leader for us.Fitzgerald teamed with Anquan Boldin to create one of the most dangerous wide receiver tandems the NFL.

Artie Burns has started all 14 games for the Steelers this season and 23 times since he was drafted in the first round out of Miami in 2016. But after getting called for another pass interference in Pittsburgh’s loss to the Patriots Sunday, head coach Mike Tomlin may be ready to make a change.

Neither Burns nor Sutton knows exactly what his role will be Monday, or if Sutton running with the first team is permanent, but this year’s third-round pick said his confidence is growing.

“I feel like I’ve done pretty good,” Sutton told the Post-Gazette. “Obviously, you learn each and every week. The biggest thing is keeping me confident, competitive and keep going out there and having fun. Everything else will take care of itself. You can only control what you can control with your preparation throughout the week. When one of those moments in the game happens you have to be ready.”

If Sutton does get the start, it will be against the Texans’ third-string quarterback T.J. Yates. The North Carolina graduate is completing 45.6 percent of his passes this season in two games for Houston.

Jim Schwartz expected to interview with Giants in next week, sources say

Posted on by

The Giants, who are 3-13 and clinched the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft after Sunday’s 18-10 season finale win against the Washington Redskins, fired coach Ben McAdoo after Week 13. New York has since been led by Steve Spagnuolo on an interim basis.

Schwartz is expected to interview with the Giants in the next week, while the Eagles — with an NFC-best record of 13-2 — are on the bye heading into the postseason.

Giants owner John Mara said the team wants to hire an experienced coach, and Schwartz would qualify. He coached the Detroit Lions for five seasons, with his tenure ending in his dismissal after the 2013 season.

This probably won’t be a huge deal, but depending on how that Week 14 matchup between the Vikings and Panthers goes, this won’t be the last we hear about this.

No player history – not even , maybe not plus Martinez – has done the kind of meaningful, historical, painful damage to the Yankees that Ortiz has done singlehandedly.I can help.

Badgers LB Jack Cichy won’t apply for 6th year, to enter NFL draft

Posted on by

“Whatever comes next for me, I mainly just want to make Wisconsin proud,” Cichy wrote. “I want to be the next guy people point to as someone who came to Madison as an unknown, worked his tail off and then became a mainstay in the NFL. I want to be like Jim Leonhard and J.J. [Watt] and so many other guys who came here with a far-fetched dream and then … achieved greatness. I want to uphold that legacy.”

For the next four months, under FBI surveillance, the men engineered the payment to Bowen’s father while plotting how to route money to another Louisville recruit. Brad Augustine, an Adidas-sponsored AAU program director, predicted in one meeting that Pitino would be instrumental because “no one swings a bigger d— at Adidas than” him. Neither Pitino nor any other head coach or university is named in the FBI affidavit, but ABC News has identified Pitino as the one referred to as “Coach-2.”

After Bowen committed to Louisville, Pitino told Terry Meiners of News Radio 840: “We got lucky on this one. … We spent zero dollars recruiting a five-star athlete who I loved when I saw him play. In my 40 years of coaching, this is the luckiest I’ve been.”

Darren McFadden is done in Dallas.

The Cowboys on Sunday waived the veteran running back “based on mutual discussions” in recent days, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported, citing unidentified league sources.

McFadden was a healthy scratch in the team’s last two games after being inactive for the first eight games of the season. He played just one snap in the Cowboys’ Week 9 loss to the Falcons, losing 2 yards on his lone carry of the season.

Once he clears waivers, McFadden is free to sign with another team and could find himself on a playoff squad in need of a healthy rusher.

McFadden, 30, has 85 total rushing yards the past two seasons after finishing fourth in the NFL with 1,089 rushing yards in his first year with the Cowboys in 2015.

Tom Brady already holds a bunch of important records. Here’s a completely esoteric one.

Raptors’ Delon Wright expected to miss month with dislocated shoulder

Posted on by

Toronto Raptors guard Delon Wright is expected to miss a month with a dislocated right shoulder, league sources tell ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wright was injured in the second quarter of last week’s victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

The team said Wednesday that Wright visited Dr. Riley Williams at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, and it was decided that Wright does not need surgery on the shoulder at this time.

Wright missed the first four months of last season after undergoing surgery on the same shoulder.

Wright is averaging 7.6 points and 20.9 minutes this season as the primary backup to starting point guard Kyle Lowry.

And every team has at least one player fans should be excited about watching. Combined with the technology of lighter and more protective equipment, the entertainment value has never been higher. That’s what I’m thankful for.

Antetokounmpo told reporters that this is the same injury that bothered him this summer, when knee pain prevented the forward from playing for the Greek national team in the European championship. He said he wants to be cautious and is planning to return Saturday against the Jazz.

The 22-year-old is averaging career highs of 29.7 points (second in the league) and 10.3 rebounds per game.

The shorthanded Bucks also were without guard Matthew Dellavedova, forward Mirza Teletovic and center John Henson on Wednesday.

Derek Carr struggled to 237 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 49 attempts against New England on Sunday. Carr has now managed exactly one touchdown during six of his past seven games and a total of nine scores and eight interceptions during the seven-game span. Believe it or not, Carr sits 23rd among quarterbacks in fantasy points this season.nationals_004

I’m never going to force anybody to do anything that they don’t feel comfortable with.

“We’re definitely going to have to make some moves, especially at the tackle position,” Shanahan said. “We don’t have those numbers on our team so over the next 24 hours we’re going to have to work on this to fill out our roster, decide on who can go on IR, to know what roster spots are open and the guys that aren’t on IR, deciding who we’re going to let go to bring some guys up to possibly get some guys out there.”

“It’s more just trying to get an idea for how long things are going to be because you’ve got to make that decision. When guys are hurt, that’s a tough thing. They can’t play when they’re hurt, but if they’re not going to be out for a long period time, you can’t also sign other guys to replace them. They still count on your active roster, so trying to find out how serious the injuries are, how long they’ll be out, guys like Joe and stuff like that, kind of limits what you can do until you know for sure whether you’ll have that roster spot.”

The display by the Texans players comes after team owner Bob McNair’s controversial “inmates running the prison” comment, which was said during an Oct. 18 meeting in which owners talked about business concerns related to player protests during the national anthem.

“[There were] a lot of emotions running through our team,” left tackle Duane Brown said. “But just a huge sense of unity, I think we all felt, just coming out and playing for each other. And that was it. Forgetting everything else. Once kickoff started, we tried to block out any other distractions we may have had and try and go to work.”

I think we all felt the same way on Friday. And as far as the demonstration went, some people didn’t feel quite comfortable doing it, some people did. But we all supported each other, and that was what was important. I don’t think anyone looks at anyone differently for what they stood for or didn’t stand for.”

Falcons vs. Patriots on ‘Sunday Night Football’ is really foggy all of a sudden

Posted on by

The Seahawks are 13th in yards per game, 14th in points per game, and while you trust them to get it together because they’ve posted double-digit win totals and made the playoffs five years in a row, they’ve beaten only one non-terrible team so far and still don’t seem to have any kind of offensive rhythm.

Three in a row to improve to 5-2, and now they go to London to play the Browns before heading into their bye. The Vikings are down to their third-string quarterback, but they’re winning with Case Keenum and could get Teddy Bridgewater and/or Sam Bradford back in the next couple of weeks. This is a team that knows how to win with defense and a slow-down, don’t-mess-it-up offensive game plan. They beat out the Packers for the division title two years ago when Aaron Rodgers was healthy, and he’s out for at least the next six weeks. Make this team the clear favorite in the NFC North from here on out.

Was there anything Britt did like about playing in London?

“Nothing,” Britt said.

But the NFL is popular in London, and the league has made establishing a presence there a priority. So players, including Britt, are going to have to deal with it.

With Hightower done for the year, it puts more pressure on linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts. Veteran David Harris, who has played sparingly, could see his early-down spans increase.

Bill Belichick could also look to upgrade his linebacking corps with a trade before Tuesday’s deadline.

Hightower signed a four-year $35.5 million contract in March.49ers_212_2d9a35f131c18162-150x150

Oh yeah, yeah, I tried, Rose said after shootaround Tuesday.

Posted on by

The Broncos have wide receiver Hunter Sharp, who was with the team throughout the offseason and training camp, on the practice squad if they believe they need to add a receiver to the roster.

Who’s just about out: Giants (1-5), 49ers (0-6). Sunday night’s win at Denver is just one of many minor miracles New York will need to make happen to vie for a final seed, as being four back in the division and two back in the wild-card race already feels insurmountable. San Francisco is playing for next year.

Scherzer struck out seven before he was pulled after Ben Zobrist doubled to left-center on his 98th pitch for Chicago’s first hit with one out in the seventh. With Washington clinging to a 1-0 lead, Baker opted for left-hander Sammy Solis, who had a 5.88 ERA during the regular season, and Maddon countered by sending Almora to hit for the lefty-batting Schwarber.

Oh yeah, yeah, I tried, Rose said after shootaround Tuesday. People always said that I didn’t recruit. I tried to recruit. I put out the video, but it wasn’t for me to say that. I felt like it was for the organization to say that.

Myers struggled during training camp and preseason but got off to a solid start before struggling in two of the last three games. Meyers missed a 52-yard field goal attempt against the New York Jets in a game the Jaguars lost 23-20 in overtime and missed a pair of 54-yard field goal attempts in the Jaguars’ 27-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

Myers made 11 of 14 field goal attempts and 15 of 17 PATs this season and all three of his missed field goals were from 50 yards or longer. His two misses against the Rams were wide left by a significant margin.

That left the 38-year-old QB, who has played for eight teams in his 15-year career, outplaying future Hall of Famer Tom Brady at MetLife Stadium. Brady had 257 passing yards, two touchdowns, and an interception as the Patriots worked to fight their way back into this game.sabres_004

Browns finally got a lead this season right after benching DeShone Kizer

Posted on by

The Cleveland Browns took the lead in a game in 2017 for the first time thanks to a diving, one-handed touchdown grab by David Njoku.

In each of Cleveland’s first four losses to open the season, the Browns were tied or behind for the entire game, but the defense has done well against the Jets so far in Week 5 to keep things close. A normal team would have grabbed a lead much earlier, but Cleveland’s impossibly bad luck kept the team scoreless in the first half.

After spending what seemed like an Barkevious Mingo Womens Jersey eternity with Tom Savage at quarterback, the Texans finally handed the reins over to the rookie Watson. Since then, it’s been a completely new Houston team. During last week’s record-setting win, Watson joined Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Fran Tarkenton (1961) as the only rookies in NFL history to throw for at least 250 yards (283) with four passing and one rushing touchdown in the same game.

With the offenses preparing for a high-scoring matchup, the fate of this primetime Authentic Josh McCown Jersey game will be in the hands of each team’s defense.

This Week 5 game will be one of the more offensively loaded games on Sunday, but the real similarity is the surprisingly productive and successful seasons the two teams’ quarterbacks are having.

Two drives for the team in the first half got inside the 5-yard line and both ended with Kizer turnovers. The first was a fumble and the second was a bad interception that erased a chance at a chip-shot field goal.

But even field goals were hard to come by. Zane Gonzalez entered the game two-of-three on field goal attempts and seven-of-seven on extra points. On Sunday, he missed 52-yard and 39-yard field goals that would’ve given the Browns the lead.

Opponents have figured out to pass over and around Milwaukee’s frenzied trapping defense.

Posted on by

Continuity helps, and their starting lineup with Malcolm Brogdon, Thon Maker, Khris Middleton and Tony Snell — and without Jabari Parker — blitzed opponents by 12 points per 100 possessions once Jason Kidd landed on it.

But, man, are they thin until Parker comes back — likely in February at the earliest, per league sources. Their top three reserves are Matthew Dellavedova, Mirza Teletovic and Greg Monroe. Teletovic spent time out of the rotation last season, and lineups pairing Dellavedova and Brogdon — a necessity given the short bench — were a disaster. Monroe might be the single most important bench player in the league.

Only four teams allowed more shots in the restricted area; only seven gave up more 3s.

Of course, Denver should not start securing permits for a downtown parade this June. These things take time. And just like the Warriors before them, it’s most certainly a long shot, especially when you’re doing it without the benefit of an obvious franchise-changer like LeBron. When the Warriors won the title in 2014-15, they became the first champions in the lottery era to win it all without a single top-five pick among their top five in minutes played. But even that team had seasoned pedigree in former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut and former No. 4 overall pick Shaun Livingston. That team entered the season projected to finish seventh in the West.tigers_047-115x115
