Seahawks fans create earthquake-like phenomenon after game-winning TD

Posted on by

Just in case there was any question as to how excited fans were the Texans-Seahawks game on Sunday, there is scientific proof in the seismic activity at CenturyLink Field.

Possibly because they didn鈥檛 want to upset their players, or possibly because they didn鈥檛 have the foresight that a strike was imminent, the Giants were forced to scramble after the fact, bringing in an eclectic group of semi-pro players like DeRose. Their replacement roster ended up having only three players with any NFL experience.

We had a rag-tag unit, he DeRose says. But I think everybody had Shayne Corson Jersey the same attitude. We don鈥檛 know if this is going to last a day or a month, but we鈥檙e going to have a ball while we鈥檙e here.

That was vintage Matt Ryan there with the scramble, and man oh man isn’t it awesome to see Sanu back, as he was the spark the team was missing the past couple of weeks.

The rain is falling, and the Falcons are hoping they can get the Jets to do the same.

McCown takes the first snap of the season. He hands to running back Emmitt Smith. Smith runs toward the line, stops, pivots, and tosses back to McCown. McCown throws as far as he can downfield. Fitzgerald, covered by Aeneas Williams, jumps over Williams to make the 37-yard catch.

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

Cowboys S Jeff Heath (yes) bangs in extra point off upright with loudest CLANG ever

Posted on by

Starting strong safety Jeff Heath is on kicking duties for the Dallas Cowboys with Dan Bailey ruled out against the San Francisco 49ers due to a groin injury.
Women's Nike New York Giants #33 Andrew Adams Limited Black 2016 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
He’s also done a pretty good job on kickoffs, booting three that all traveled a respectable distance and didn’t give the 49ers great field position.

The Cowboys won’t get Bailey back Sunday and if his injury is serious, the team will undoubtedly scoop up a kicker before a road game against Washington in Week 8. But Dallas found out against the 49ers that it has a decent emergency option on the roster in Heath.

The majority of owners understand this is important to the players and want to be supportive, even if they don’t exactly know how to be supportive, one owner says.

For a while that just meant kickoff duties with the Cowboys going for two after a second quarter touchdown. But when Ezekiel Elliott scored a 72-yard touchdown to put Dallas up 26-3 early in the second half, the team gave Heath a shot on the extra point.

The defensive back was successful on the try, but just barely. He banked the kick in off the right upright with a loud CLANG.

His second try wasn’t even close to good, but the Cowboys now lead Joel Embiid Authentic Jersey 33-3, so nobody was too worried about it.

Heath scooped up a fumble and returned it for a touchdown during his rookie season in 2013, so Sunday isn’t the first time he’s recorded points in the NFL. But they are the first that came from a kick since his time handling kicking duties for his high school.

Colts will play Luck when cleared, no matter team’s record

Posted on by

On Washington’s next-to-last drive, with his team trailing 20-17, Cousins twice eluded pressure, broke the pocket and darted downfield, risking his safety and, potentially, millions of dollars to dive for first downs. What came next felt like Cousins’ pi猫ce de r茅sistance. On third-and-2 from the 22, he dropped back, looked right and considered throwing to tight end Jordan Reed. Instead he scanned the field, stayed calm, looked left and saw receiver Josh Doctson in single coverage on the other side. He patted the ball once, reset his feet and uncorked what was, considering the moment, one of the best throws of his career.
Nike Los Angeles Rams Authentic Font Long Sleeve NFL T-Shirt - Blue
The pass knifed through the air, just beyond the outstretched arm of the Chiefs’ Phillip Gaines, and settled in Doctson’s large hands. Doctson tucked the ball away, got one foot down, then the next, and crashed to the ground. It looked as if he and Cousins had just connected for the winning touchdown.

With the Cincinnati Bengals selling out to block the punt, the snap instead went to safety Robert Golden who threw a perfect pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey for a huge gain.
Elite Womens T.J. Oshie Jersey
Heyward-Bey was uncovered on the play and Bengals cornerback Darqueze Dennard took off after him as soon Womens Tyler Wong Jersey as he saw the snap go to Golden. He wasn’t fast enough to make up the distance, though.

Mike Tomlin was happy about it.
Elite Womens Ryan Reaves Jersey
The play set up the Steelers deep in Cincinnati territory and allowed them to run off more time before settling for a field goal that extended the lead to 29-14 and essentially ended any comeback hopes.

This isn’t quite as disrespectful as the Jaguars running a fake punt with a 37-0 lead, but the rivalry factor and smugness adds extra disrespect points. Fake punts are great.

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

Eagles’ home run touchdown celebration frontrunner for best of the season

Posted on by

The Eagles had one of the best touchdown celebrations of the season on Sunday with their home run scene.

Ben Roethlisberger has thrown CONSECUTIVE pick-sixes to the Jaguars and I am HERE for the Steelers getting dragged at home. Did I pick the Steelers to cover more than a touchdown in a win? Yes, I did, and I will happily be wrong forever if it means that hairy sentient ham suffers a public humiliation every time he uses the media to chastise the star wide receiver who makes him look good every week.

Of course, Disney did this two years ago with The Force Awakens, so cross-branding is kind of their thing.

For those who don’t care much about football or the debut of Chicago Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky against the Minnesota Vikings, halftime of the game will likely be around 10 p.m. ET. Tuning in five or 10 minutes early just to be safe couldn’t hurt.

Directed by Rian Johnson, The Last Jedi hits theaters on Dec. 15.

Elite Youth Harrison Butker Jersey This is too many Seahawks-Rams updates, so let’s wrap this one up, even if it messes with chronology: The Rams can’t stop turning the ball over, and the Seahawks can’t do anything with the ball when they get it. After my kids go to bed, Cooper Kupp drops what would have been a game-winning touchdown. Seahawks win, 16-10.

Elite Womens Pernell McPhee Jersey
Brown snatched the ball with one hand, then rumbled into the end zone. Suddenly, a 12-10 advantage became a 19-10 one, putting Kansas City’s undefeated streak in serious jeopardy.

It looks even more ridiculous from the opposite sideline.

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.
