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.

What makes this country great is that you have the right to speak your mind

Posted on by

One agent not associated with Hill defended the anchor, saying that ESPN gave her a premium weekday afternoon timeslot because of the way she expresses opinions. The agent felt that ESPN suddenly grew scared of Hill’s opinions once the White House started taking notice.

Limited Womens Valeri Nichushkin Jersey But most of the talent agents interviewed for this story thought that Hill should have been smarter with her social media interactions. One agent said he was talking to clients about understanding the long-term picture and to take into account that their public actions reflect on their employers.

Another pointed out that Hill got herself into trouble on Twitter, a social media platform that has no affiliation with ESPN or Hill, rather than advocating her position on her show, SC6.

What makes this country great is that you have the right to speak your mind, Montag said. But you have to recognize that your platform on social media is partly because of your employer. Some fans believe that you are speaking for, say, ESPN.

It was was once considered a risqué pursuit, performed in front of a paying clientele at late night establishments.

However, now pole dancing has been recognised by an international sporting body, following an 11-year battle by a British competitor to make the event an Olympic sport.
Game Mens Matt Bosher Jersey
For the first time, the Global Association of International Sports Federation (GAISF) has granted seven events Observer status, meaning they are now provisionally recognised as sports.

The historic milestone means that the International Pole Sports Federation (IPSF), founded by Katie Coates, 41, from Hertfordshire, is now able to apply for membership of the International Olympic Committee.

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

There is no reason to be optimistic about the Magic.

They ranked 29th in points per possession, and 24th in points allowed. Lineups with Aaron Gordon at power forward, his appropriate position and the one he will mercifully play this season, fared poorly. Continuity doesn’t mean much when you bring back mediocre players who don’t fit.
Game Womens Mike Williams Jersey
But it means something. Look: One of these sorry ass teams is going to randomly win 38 games and butt into the playoff walkathon. Frank Vogel spent a year discovering what doesn’t work. Dig deeper, and a lot of the lineups that failed with Gordon at power forward involved Jeff Green and other nonentities who aren’t here anymore.
Womens Brian Campbell Jersey
It wasn’t long ago that Jackson was considered a top-60 type of player but after an injury-marred 2016-17 season, he is slipping past pick 100 in most drafts. Being one of the main offensive options on the Pistons this season along with Drummond, Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley, getting Jackson in this range makes him a strong value that I’d like to have on my team. And with point guard being such a deep position, Jackson is a good option to solidify my backcourt with if I missed out on the point guards I coveted in the early rounds.

But even that plan hit a small snag. Both the Celtics and Pistons, out of respect to the players involved, wanted to alert them before news got out. Bradley was Boston’s longest-tenured player and its last link to the Big Three era. The team didn’t want to move him but also recognized it likely couldn’t offer him the big payday he’ll likely earn as a free agent next summer.

Celtics players like to tease Horford about his social media indifference. Grandpa Al, the oldest player on Boston’s roster at age 31, checks his Instagram feed daily but isn’t glued to his phone like most of his younger teammates.

Southern Utah tops winless Cal Poly 20-14

Posted on by

Patrick Tyler threw for 223 yards and a touchdown and Southern Utah rolled to a 20-14 victory over winless Cal Poly on Saturday night.

Youth Cornelius Lucas Jersey Tyler was 23-of-30 passing and connected with Terrance Beasley on a 26-yard touchdown that stretched Southern Utah’s lead to 17-7 early in the second quarter. Earlier, Jay Green had a 55-yard touchdown run with 4:36 left in the first quarter to put the Thunderbirds (3-2, 1-1 Big Sky Conference) on top for good.

Manny Berz had 26- and 38-yard field goals for Southern Utah.

Cal Poly (0-6, 0-3) took a 7-3 lead in the first quarter with a 73-yard touchdown run by Kyle Lewis, and Broc Mortensen ran in a TD from the 5 with 4:46 to play.

Southern Utah went three-and-out on its next possession, but the Mustangs failed to convert on fourth-and-3 from their own 44.
Youth Rick Martin Jersey
Jared Mohamed rushed for 135 yards on 29 carries for Cal Poly, which has lost seven in a row, dating to last season.

While Samuels’ position is a bit hazy — he’s classified as an H-back — his inclusion on this list shouldn’t be. The nation’s only player with at least 15 career rushing touchdowns and at least 15 career receiving touchdowns has scored at least one way in all six games (and in both ways against Florida State). He has a reception in 34 consecutive games and has at least five receptions in every game, to go along with three games of five or more rushes.

Chargers end nine-game losing streak, Giants remain winless

Posted on by

Philip Rivers threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Melvin Gordon with 2:58 to play and the Los Angeles Chargers rallied to beat the New York Giants 27-22 on Sunday in a game worthy of two teams that started the season 0-4.
Authentic Kids Nate Stupar Jersey
The touchdown pass was Rivers’ third of the game and came three plays after Kyle Emanuel had a sack, forced fumble and recovery against Eli Manning at the Giants 11-yard line. It also came four plays after Odell Beckham Jr. hurt an ankle and become the fourth Giants receiver knocked out of the game.This was the guy who put the sweat, blood and tears into it, Colts owner Jim Irsay said, and there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thankful for our friendship and for what he’s meant to this city and this state. He’s an iconic football player that transcended football, and what he’s meant to Indiana is something that is very difficult to come up with the correct words to describe.

The Colts released Manning in the spring of 2012 after he missed the entire 2011 season with a neck injury. He signed with the Denver Broncos and won his second Super Bowl with them after the 2015 season, which was his 18th and final NFL season.

I know many of you, like most of us, shed a tear when Peyton said goodbye, said Polian, who selected Manning over quarterback Ryan Leaf in the 1998 draft. Well, today we get a chance to welcome him back home to Indiana and tell him what a pleasure it was to be his teammate and friend.

Mens Nino Niederreiter Jersey There is simply no way to adamantly express what this all means to me, he said. Again, thank you Indianapolis. Thank you Indiana. I’m proud to have been a citizen of this town. As I told the world a year and a half ago, I will always be a Colt.

McCarthy wasn’t ready to downgrade Dallas’ offense just yet.

Posted on by

I mean, what in the name of Will Beatty, Cullen Jenkins and Brandon Myers is going on out there in East Rutherford? This wasn’t supposed to be the 2013 Giants redux. This was supposed to be a triumphant leap forward off of last year’s 11-5 finish and return to the playoffs. Instead, the Giants are 0-4, the offense doesn’t work, and Eli Manning finds himself back where he was before he ever met Ben McAdoo in the first place. To quote the song choice: It’s like something is testing me, pulling and directing me, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. Big picture, every team is looking for a quarterback who either never misses games or can win a Super Bowl, and Manning is the rare guy who has proved to be both. But right now, it’s tough for anyone with the Giants to have any confidence in anything. Manning, 36, is closer to the end of his career than the beginning, rookie third-round pick Davis Webb is a total unknown, and this whole situation is a mess.

Elliott faces a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy in relation to a domestic violence claim against him. However, the NFLPA applied for and received an injunction against the league in early September and the case is still tied up in the court system.

It has apparently affected Elliott’s play as he has rushed for 277 yards and only 3.6 per carry through four games. A year ago through four weeks, Elliott rushed for 412 yards and 4.4 per carry.

However, McCarthy wasn’t ready to downgrade Dallas’ offense just yet.

You compare a 17-game season to four games? I know I don’t, McCarthy said. You’ve got to look at the video, look at the things they’re doing and (Elliott and Dallas QB Dak Prescott are) fine, good football players. Very productive. That will be a big challenge for our defense.

Carolina coach Ron Rivera didn’t want Newton taking too many hits in the early going.

Posted on by

Authentic Kids Drew Stafford Jersey
It has been almost four weeks since quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) saw his last game action, and the Vikings are still classifying him as day-to-day. He hasn’t practiced since Sept. 21, but the hope is that he’ll be able to return to practice this week; if that goes well, he could play against the Bears. With Dalvin Cook out for the season with an ACL tear, the Vikings are thin at running back and worked out several on Wednesday as possible additions. In the meantime, Latavius Murray, who had ankle surgery in the offseason, is expected to pick up a bulk of Cook’s workload. Running back Jerick McKinnon also left last week’s loss with an undisclosed ankle injury in the fourth quarter, but since Minnesota hasn’t practiced yet this week with its adjusted schedule for Monday Night Football, there has been no injury report to update his status. — Courtney Cronin

Newton’s revival gives the opportunistic Detroit Lions defense plenty of concerns when the teams match up at Ford Field this Sunday.

Once he gave Newton a little more freedom to take off, so did the entire offense.
T. J. Watt Authentic Jersey
I thought it did open up a couple of things, Rivera said. And now that the threat is there, those backside guys that come screaming off the edge, they as defenders have to think about what they’re going to do because there’s always that possibility.

The Panthers (3-1) managed to collect two wins while scoring a combined 45 points in their first three games. They’ve been forced to adjust with Newton’s favorite target, tight end Greg Olsen, on injured reserve with a fractured foot.

Lions lose apparent game-winning TD vs. Falcons on replay review

Posted on by

Matthew Stafford has led more fourth-quarter comebacks than any quarterback in the NFL since he entered the league in 2009, but he was denied another miracle in cruel fashion Sunday.
Authentic Womens Kevin Bieksa Jersey
Minutes after Stafford and the Lions celebrated an apparent game-winning touchdown pass to Golden Tate with eight seconds left, the officials overturned the call on replay to give the Falcons a 30-26 win in Detroit.

Limited Youth J.J. Wilcox Jersey During the play, which occurred near the midway point of the fourth quarter, Pryor ran a shallow cross and was brought to the ground after Davis drove his left shoulder to the area around Pryor’s right knee. Pryor acknowledged in his tweet that it was not a dirty play, but added, We all want success. Try to hit a little higher and not take out knees in future. Thank you.

Davis, who doesn’t know Pryor personally, believes the issue could’ve been handled differently.

He could’ve found me after the game or direct messaged me or something, Davis said. I don’t know if he had a complaint against the NFL about how the rules are written or just trying to drag me into a spectacle, but I respect him and respect his opinion. It’s football. We’re going to go out there and play. I wasn’t intending anything dirty.

Putting a rookie quarterback in at the start of the season can be tough.

Posted on by

I was just trying to make a play, Watson said after the game. I broke away and found a hole. My receivers and everyone else that was down the field did a good job of blocking for me and making me find lanes to get into the end zone.
Kids Jaelen Strong Jersey
An overlooked part of the play was that he even got a nice stiff arm in on Carl Lawson at the beginning of the run.

But Watson showed that one of the reasons the Texans traded up to draft him No. 12 overall was his poise.

The Giants’ leading rusher, Shane Vereen, managed 28 yards, and the team as a whole got to just 62 yards on the ground. Every time the team even attempted to run, it pissed off the fans at MetLife Stadium.

Detroit’s stats on the ground were much better, but by no means were the Lions running that well either. Ameer Abdullah escaped on a pair of plays for 24-yard and 34-yard runs, but most of his carries managed 2 yards or fewer. It’s still far from the strength of the Lions offense.

Both teams are pretty one-dimensional; the Lions are much better at it.

New York’s offensive line has big issues, and they were all on display against the Cowboys on Sunday night. Right tackle Bobby Hart — who was playing through an ankle injury, according to head coach Ben McAdoo — and right guard John Jerry were primarily to blame, though left tackle Ereck Flowers struggled, too.
Limited Trevor Lewis Jersey
The line looked rough from the very start. It gave up a sack during the Giants’ opening possession — while players were doing their own Sunday Night Football intros:

Center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh both had decent performances, but it’s impossible for two guys to compensate for sub-par play from the other three players on the line.
