One potential change James said he does not agree with is Cleveland letting go of coach Tyronn Lue in response to the team’s recent doldrums.

Each week, national NFL writer Mark Maske ranks the league’s 32 teams but with the regular season now finished, the focus shifts to playoff participants. The Patriots, owners of home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs, lead the list, while the Vikings, aiming to become the first team to play a Super Bowl in its own stadium, top the NFC group. And the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose quarterback and top runner are in the midst of a three-week break, round out the top three.

They took care of business Sunday against the Jets, securing the AFC’s top seed, and now they have a bye week to rest and prepare to host a conference semifinal at home. The road to the Super Bowl in the AFC goes through Foxborough, Mass., and it looks like the Patriots are headed to an eighth Super Bowl appearance with Bill Belichick as their coach and Tom Brady as their QB.

Limited Mens Kenyan Drake Jersey On Thursday, the chief executive of Pizza Hut’s parent company told investors the players’ protests haven’t hurt the company one bit.

We’re not seeing impact from any of that on our business, said Greg Creed, chief executive of Yum Brands.

More players began protesting in September, stoked by Trump’s comments to fire any son of a bitch player who does not stand during the national anthem. The subsequent wave of player protests prompted Trump to call upon his supporters to boycott the NFL as well.

That’s way too hard, James said. We got a lot of things going on. It’s not 1, it’s Ricky Wagner Jersey 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. We got some searching to figure out how we can be better.

Limited C.J. Uzomah Jersey I would hope not, James said. But I really don’t know. I don’t know what’s going to happen with our team. I have no idea what conversations have been going on. Me personally, I’ve been trying to stay as laser-sharp as I can to keep my guys ready to go out and play. Obviously, it hasn’t resulted in wins, but I got to stay as fresh mentally as much I can with the struggles. I can’t worry about job securities and trades and things of that nature. I just stay as focused as I can every night to go out and compete and try to help us win ballgames.

The Lions catch what appeared to be a game-winning touchdown that was overruled upon review.

Because the clock should have been running, a 10-second run-off was ordered, ending the game on the one-inch line. Here’s the non-TD:

WHAT WE THINK: The Chargers went 9-7 in McCoy’s first two seasons but fell to four wins last year and won a dismal five games this season after coming into the year as a potential darkhorse in the division. San Diego’s loaded with talent — Melvin Gordon emerged as a workhorse this year, Keenan Allen is a stud receiver and Philip Rivers is a top-10 quarterback — but has consistently underachieved with McCoy as coach.

In fact, Brock Miller spends his days working for his father’s sports mobile app start-up, using his free time to work out and hone his punting. He hasn’t given up his dream, but Miller can take solace in this: If the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the New England Patriots today, he will be one contributing factor.

The Jaguars worked out Miller — a left-footer — on Thursday to help prepare their punt returners Jaydon Mickens, Dede Westbrook and others for the Patriots’ left-footed punter Ryan Allen. The spin is different, the approach is different, it’s unfamiliar.

Yes, it’s a small detail. But for coach Doug Marrone and his staff, it could make the difference.

I know a lot of teams are really appreciative of when they can get me in, but it’s really a two-way street, Miller said by phone on Friday. It helps me out, too. A small-school guy, it helps teams find out who I am, getting my name out there. Plus, to help a great team like the Jaguars in the playoffs, help them prepare for a guy like Ryan Allen, just get the returners comfortable. It’s like a trend.

Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt promises to ‘get better’ after Rookie of the Year debut

Kansas City running back Kareem Hunt knows the Chiefs have questions to answer heading into 2018.

Hunt won’t be a question mark for the Chiefs in 2018. He’s part of a standout rookie running back class along with Jacksonville’s Leonard Fournette and New Orleans’ Alvin Kamara, who also helped their respective teams reach the postseason. Hunt admitted he doesn’t know much about fantasy football but enjoyed the volume of messages he received on Twitter and Instagram. He’s already picturing more for 2018.

Just keep getting better and not got comfortable, Hunt said. I want to get better with every year.

Hunt spent Friday signing autographs as part of a promotion with Panini America is the exclusive trading card partner of the NFL.

I’m signing my arm off right now, he said, but it’s for a good cause.

He looked pretty good to me, cornerback Malcolm Butler said Friday, per ESPN.com.

Added wide receiver Danny Amendola, He looked good … they’re always good throws [from him].

A source went so far as to tell NFL.com Brady was zinging it pretty good in Friday’s practice.

Meanwhile, more detail has surfaced about the cause of the injury. Per NFL Network, Brady suffered a cut on his right thumb during a collision with Rex Burkhead while trying to hand off the ball to the running back at Wednesday’s practice. The cut was gushing blood and required [four] stitches.

Perhaps Pats fans will be able to get some sleep after this positive news about Brady, but there’s little doubt the nervousness will linger until game time.patriots_125_945b21fa96ea9486-180x180

The Jags play the Steelers in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday, so it seemed like a good time to catch up with Mande

The Minnesota Vikings have designated Pro Bowl receiver Adam Thielen as questionable for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. But indications are strong that Thielen will start, despite a lower back injury that cost him one day of practice this week and limited him for two others.

However, the NFL is attempting to put the screws on Judge Amos Mazzant (Eastern District of Texas) to get a ruling on whether or not Elliott will be allowed to continue playing. In fact, the league asked the Jon Merrill Womens Jersey judge to rule by Thursday afternoon on whether or not to it would grant the league’s Emergency Motion to Stay Injunction Pending Appeal, which the league filed on September 11.
Rogie Vachon Elite Jersey
The non-legalese version of that: the judge ruled in Elliott’s favor to allow him to keep playing but still had to decide if he would grant an injunction for Elliott to play for the entire season. The NFL is asking him not to grant that and to remove the temporary injunction. The NFL also filed an appeal with the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals and is asking the judge to rule by Thursday or it will ask the Court of Appeals to tell Elliott he has to stop playing immediately.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S HOPE! Jacksonville made it to the playoffs this year! Last week, fiction became fact when comedian Joe Mande, one of the show’s producers, and Jacinto went to the Wild Card Game in Jacksonville and watched the Jags beat the Bills. While Jason might not be alive to see his team advance in the playoffs, at least his creators are.

Here, he talks about what the show will do if Jacksonville wins the Super Bowl, what it was like to eat a cheeseburger with bright blue buns at a football game in Florida, and how perfect it is that The Good Place only follows Blake Bortles and the Jaguars on Twitter.

Everyone suspects the Broncos are going to make an addition at quarterback, but it’s not yet clear whether their decision will dramatically move the needle. The Broncos’ defense hasn’t declined as much as the raw totals suggest; it fell from fourth to 22nd in points allowed but was still the 10th-best defense by DVOA after leading the league in 2016. But Denver could cut Aqib Talib. And it is feeling the effects of what look to be middling drafts in 2015 and 2016.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are in the playoffs for the first time in a decade.

Still, the last time Jacksonville won a division title was 1999 when it topped the AFC Central.

The rest of the AFC field will feature many of the familiar faces of the last 10 years. Namely, it’s the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots who grabbed the top two spots in the conference and earned first-round byes.

The Jaguars are a fresh addition, but they’re more than just that. They’re the NFL’s annoying swarm of gnats pissing off every opponent on the schedule 锟斤拷 and they may be the most fun team in the league.

The play was originally ruled down inside the one-yard line, but was later overturned on review. That gave Fournette four rushing touchdowns at Heinz Field this season 锟斤拷 one more than Pittsburgh back Le’Veon Bell.

Jaguars 7, Steelers 0: Pittsburgh’s first drive ended with a three-and-out punt, but the Steelers still managed to get lucky. All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey appeared to inadvertently shove an official after an on-field scrum — a mistake that could have led to a 15-yard penalty or even an ejection. Fortunately for Pouncey, the official shrugged off the encounter as playoff football, keeping his flags in his pocket.

Jaguars 7, Steelers 0: Doug Marrone isn’t messing around. After Blake Bortles completed his first three passes of the game to set Jacksonville up inside the Pittsburgh red zone, the Jaguar head coach rolled the dice with Womens Radek Faksa Jersey a fourth-and-goal run from the 1.

As of Thursday morning, Vikings fans had donated more than $150,000 to Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow charity — the latest in a growing trend of NFL fan bases showing appreciation for players on other teams.
Shabazz Napier Authentic Jersey
In this case, a Vikings fan apparently first suggested on Reddit that they should make donations to Morstead’s charity out of respect for the way he played through the pain of torn cartilage in his ribs in Sunday’s playoff game — and even came out to line up as a defensive tackle on the Vikings’ final two-point conversion kneel-down after their stunning game-winning touchdown.

As donations grew on Sunday and Monday, Morstead promised to return to Minnesota to personally deliver a check to Minnesota’s Child Life Program — which he now plans to do during the week leading up to the Super Bowl.

Case Keenum was one of 2017’s great stories, leading the Vikings to a first-round bye after taking over for Sam Bradford.

The NFL implemented the following changes to the protocol immediately in December after investigating how the Texans handled a Tom Savage concussion against the Womens Vonn Bell Jersey 49ers:
Women's Reebok Tampa Bay Lightning #31 Peter Budaj Premier Black Third NHL Jersey
Implemented a pilot program utilizing a centralized UNC based at the league office to monitor the broadcast feeds of all games. The UNC will contact the team medical staff on the sideline should they observe any signs or symptoms warranting further evaluation.

Require all players who undergo any concussion evaluation on game day to have a follow-up evaluation conducted the following day by a member of the medical staff.

Added a third UNC to all playoff games and the Super Bowl to serve as a backup who can step in immediately should one of the original two UNCs be absent from the sideline for a time to attend to a more severely injured player.

Could this be a disaster? Well, of course.

Helfrich was in demand in the last month with Kelly reportedly hoping for him to be the UCLA offensive coordinator and Arizona angling for him to be head coach. But that doesn’t mean the NFL is a good idea.

His time at Oregon crashed and burned, and there’s no shortage of skeptics about the viability of his offensive stylings in the NFL where defenses are significantly faster. It’s also possible he was propped up by the successes of Kelly and Scott Frost, and withered without them.

Authentic Mens Luis Tiant Jersey There are many questions that won’t be fully answered until we see the Bears on the field in the fall, but one thing that’s for sure is that Chicago just became a much more intriguing team to keep an eye on.

The Bears were 10th in total defense, allowing 319 yards per game.

red_wings_013Combined, the two tallied 1,592 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground, as well as 478 yards through the air. This offseason, you can expect the Bears to try to get Trubisky help on the outside, as Kendall Wright was their best receiver this season with 614 yards and one touchdown.

Defensively, there’s not quite as much work to be done.

The Bears have the No. 8 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, and could go a variety of ways with the pick. But the Bears seem like a fairly good fit for Nagy, who will have a fresh slate to work with.

“It’s not something we discussed, so to talk about reasoning, we’re talking hypotheticals. … Certainly he’s good enough to be a backup. … But we have a good No. 2, a guy that fits our system that we have familiarity with. He’s here for the same reason that [Dolphins coach] Adam Gase goes back to [Jay] Cutler. We know exactly what we’re going to get from the guy. Physically, Kaepernick’s more talented, but familiarity with a backup at that position, knowing exactly what you’re going to get, is more important than the ‘wow’ factor. … It’s like with [Robert Griffin III]; you had him playing a certain way, and he was a hell of a player. But as soon as defenses figured out what they were, and a specific way to play them, that’s where they had to be able to start to win from the pocket. If you can’t do that in this league, it’s tough.”

Let’s not make this harder than it actually is.

Stafford had completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,224 yards, 21 touchdowns, five interceptions and a 100.5 passer rating through 12 games last year, then tore ligaments in and dislocated the middle finger on his throwing hand, and played through that. He’s 29, and plays a position where three 30-somethings have won NFL MVP over the past four years. It’s easy to make the case that he’s still ascending.

Based on that, I’m not sure what anyone expected Detroit to do other than lock him up. Wait for the next Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers to fall out of the sky? Bottom out for a high draft pick, and hope you have it in the right year? Do that, and the likelihood is someone else will be doing the picking before you get it right.

Conversely, if you’re stable at the position, as Detroit has been the past nine years, it colors every other decision you make, and facilitates building, which isn’t lost on the man who was on the other side of the negotiating table.

The Kansas City Chiefs are going to explore trade options for Alex Smith, and the likelihood is he is playing for a new team in the 2018 season, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport stated Sunday, the day after the Chiefs were ousted from the playoffs with a 22-21 home loss to the Titans.

Chiefs fans, meanwhile, may be wondering if their team should also be considering alternatives to Andy Reid, as questionable coaching decisions Saturday were at least partly to blame for yet another early postseason exit. There are no such considerations in Kansas City.

Finally, many said; it’s madness that a city in the south, a temperate, lovely American city with a great climate, would have a domed stadium. So the Falcons built a retractable-roof stadium.

Sean McVay, head coach, Los Angeles Rams. It is Oct. 23. The Rams are 5-2. The Rams are averaging a league-high 30.3 points per game. The metamorphosis of this offense is complete. For my money the best example of it this year was Jared Goffwho decidedly is not a running threatsucking in the Arizona defense at the 9-yard line late in the first half, pulling back the handoff, seeing eight Card defenders run like an amoeba to the center of the line, and there went Goff for a fairly easy touchdown run. McVay is so imaginative, and has created so many intelligent options for an offense that was so awful last year. He is the runaway coach of the year through seven weeks, in my book.?

But here we are. Just three days into 2018 and an idea so wild and amazing that you could never even imagine it is becoming a reality.

The ineptitude was personified by Gurley most of all, even more than by Jared Goff

Reuben Foster Elite Jersey The year Gurley is having now is what most expected him to have last year to ease Goff into his role and to keep Hollywood’s new team competitive and interesting. Gurley and his game, instead, disappeared under Fisher. He was being labeled a bust more often than Goff was.
