Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet have each failed to really establish themselves as the club’s number one

Paris Saint-Germain were linked with a move for the player earlier this week, but now Liverpool and the Magpies are set to enter the frame too. Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez is said to be looking for an answer in goal and sees the player as a viable target, while Jurgen Klopp – and the Liverpool fans – aren’t believed to be too happy with their current options in goal.

Youth Steven Matz Jersey Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet have each failed to really establish themselves as the club’s number one, with both making a number of errors while entrusted with the jersey. Mignolet currently sits as Blake Swihart Jersey Liverpool’s first choice, but reports this week have suggested that Karius could now be drafted in after Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat at Tottenham.

Casillas joined Porto in summer 2015, after spending the entirety of his career until that point with boyhood club Real.

Held without a sack for three-plus quarters in Minnesota’s 33-16 win over the Browns in London, the Vikings pass rusher ultimately took down quarterback DeShone Kizer with 2:56 left on the clock.

The play vaulted Griffen into an elite club, making him just the third player in league history to open a campaign with a sack in eight consecutive games, something only Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis have accomplished.

After the win, Griffen chalked his success up to hard work, before going out of his way to shine the spotlight on his talented cast of fellow Vikings defenders.

This is the best team I’ve ever been a part of, from top to bottom, Griffen said, per ESPN’s Courtney Cronin.

Cardinals and Dolphins both lost QBs, but only one team is screwed

Robert Woods, WR, Los Angeles Rams (19.5 percent): The Rams head into their bye in Week 8, but upon their return, make sure to keep Woods on the radar. The former Bill has at least five catches in four of his past five games and has averaged exactly seven targets per game in that stretch. He’s the most involved member of this passing game, particularly as Sammy Watkins continues to draw attention from opposing teams’ top cornerbacks.

Cooper Kupp, WR, Los Angeles Rams (40.8 percent): Kupp is another Rams wide receiver to keep on the radar, as he just keeps on finding a way to make plays for this offense. He found the end zone once again for the Rams in Week 8, seeing a career-high 10 targets in the process. The Rams are off next week, but Kupp appears on the flex radar for deeper leagues with PPR scoring.

With 33 sacks in seven games, the Jaguars are on pace for about 75 sacks.

Of course, that number is bolstered by 20 sacks in two games, while the team has just 13 in its other five. But the 1984 Bears had similar explosions, with nine-, 11- and 12-sack games and eight matchups with three sacks or fewer.

Only the 1967 Raiders, 1984 Bears, and 2017 Jaguars have ever had two double-digit sack games in a season. Jacksonville is the first team to do it twice in the first seven weeks.

At the heart of the pass rush is former Arizona Cardinals star Calais Campbell, who already has a career-high 10 sacks with the team he signed a four-year, $60 million contract with in the offseason. With just two more, he’ll tie the Jaguars franchise record of 12 held by Tony Brackens.

He wanted Goodell’s contract to be more incentive-based than it is. This is the most one-sided contract ever, he said. This speech, like the one earlier in the day by him, was not vintage Jones: His usual annoying but endearing Jerryisms were replaced by a palpable urgency; it seemed to a few owners as if only Jones could see that an opportunity to regain control of the league was slipping away.

It’s always a little dangerous to trust a Patriots running back, but with 25 touches during the past two weeks, I’ll roll the dice with Dion Lewis David Krejci Authentic Jersey as a flex play against a Chargers team allowing 4.9 yards per carry this season, second most in the NFL.

He postponed his surgery to play video games with me. ‘Conan and this video game mean more to me than my future in the National Football League.’ That’s a quote 鈥?maybe, O’Brien said.

Jones arrived in New York to have a good time — and to deliver a reckoning. The only question was whether his billionaire partners and Goodell would heed that reckoning.

AS THE HISTORIC players-owners meeting began, the players, led by retired wide receiver Anquan Boldin and Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, entered the conference room and shook the owners’ hands, an uncommon occurrence at prior tension-filled joint meetings. The players took seats side by side with the owners. Goodell wanted to put the players at ease by allowing every one of their voices to be heard. The players said that they felt the owners — as a collective more than the small group in the room — were being duplicitous; they were empathetic to their concerns behind closed doors but not publicly.

Unlike some of these other cases, this team’s poor quarterback play almost solely came from one starter.

After barely playing in his rookie season, Russell started 15 games in the Raiders’ disappointing five-win campaign of 2008. Russell had barely played as a rookie the year before (following a lengthy holdout) despite being the No. 1 overall pick.

His team has won three straight with a defense that has 9 interceptions, 2 fumble recoveries and 16 sacks. The aggressiveness, takeaways and overall production are the how.

The Saints have always known they can score points.

The NFC’s top team right now is the 5-1 Philadelphia Eagles, who are tied for the best record in the entire league with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Rocky Bleier Jersey Philadelphia already dealt out losses to Washington and Carolina 锟斤拷 two of the other nine teams with winning records in the conference.

The Falcons and Seahawks don’t look like the same powerhouses of the recent past, and it’s hard to really believe that the Rams are the real deal after similarly strong starts in 2015 Womens Willie Brown Jersey and 2016 fizzled.

Green Bay was one of the few teams that looked like a legitimate Super Bowl contender in the conference, but now the Eagles are the team clearly atop that list.

Last season, with the Lions sitting atop their division at 9-4 and the chance to win the NFC North for the first time in nearly a quarter century, disaster struck. An injury to Stafford’s middle finger on his throwing hand锟斤拷literally torn ligaments in that finger锟斤拷couldn’t keep him off the field. He played, the Lions lost each remaining game on their way to handing over the NFC North to the Green Bay Packers, and they then were bounced from the playoffs in a Wild Card round matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.

Nick Folk had the worst ‘Thursday Night Football’ a kicker could have

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had kicking issues for a while now. They cut Roberto Aguayo prior to the start of the season after trading up to draft him in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft. Nick Folk was his successor, but he hasn’t been successful either.

The Bucs are probably going to be looking for a new kicker soon. Head coach Dirk Koetter said after the game that he’d be discussing the kicking situation with the general manager, but the team wasn’t going to make any rash decisions, even while it brings in other kickers for tryouts:

EJ Manuel was ineffective in relief, completing just 55 percent of his passes and throwing just a single touchdown as Oakland went 0-2 in the games in which he appeared. While that was better than last year’s playoff combination of Matt McGloin and Connor Cook, Carr’s role in the offense remains paramount to the Raiders’ postseason success.

What this means for the Raiders: Oakland could have used Week 6’s matchup against a 1-4 Chargers team as an opportunity to give Carr an extra week of rest, but it’s clear the club sees Sunday’s game as a must-win. It’s easy to see why. The Raiders are already three games behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. They’re 1.5 games behind the Broncos and already in poor tiebreaker condition in a race that could define 2017’s AFC Wild Card spots.

Los Angeles isn’t much of a threat, but another loss would dig a hole even a returning Carr would struggle to pull his team from.
Game Youth Wendel Clark Jersey
Authentic Womens Nick Bjugstad Jersey What this means for Derek Carr: Carr’s broken back always sounded much worse than it was, but this is an impressive recovery from the young quarterback. He started his fourth season as a pro strong, throwing for 492 yards and five touchdowns in his first two games before Washington badgered him into a two-interception performance in an upset loss. He’ll need to regain that early season form to bring Oakland back to .500.

Tom Brady now owns all the important NFL QB wins records

A 24-17 victory Sunday wasn’t just the 25th time Tom Brady has defeated the Jets — it also pushed the future Hall of Famer into a class of his own when it comes to winning regular season games.

The Vikings have been extremely inconsistent on offense through the first four weeks of the season, scoring over 28 points and winning by double digits in both of their wins and being held to under 10 points in each of their losses.

Case Keenum was fantastic with 369 passing yards and three passing touchdowns against Tampa Bay two weeks ago, but he managed only 219 passing yards with no touchdowns last week against Detroit. Minnesota hopes to get starter Sam Bradford back from his knee injury this week.

The Broncos’ rushing prowess combined with their rush defense allows them to control the pace of play. This benefits the Broncos, who won’t win shootouts due to quarterback Trevor Siemian’s limitations. Since a Week 2 rout of the Cowboys, the Broncos haven’t scored more than 16 points in a single game.

Jacoby Brissett has started the past five games at quarterback. Scott Tolzien started the season opener.

The Colts (2-4) will host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday afternoon.

It was a 2-1 split decision from the three judges. The dissenting judge wrote in his decision that the NFL’s investigation and disciplinary process is “arguably unfair,” according to Gabe Feldman, the director of Tulane University’s sports law program. The other two judges ruled in favor of the league because Elliott’s attorneys filed the initial lawsuit before the NFL’s appeals process was complete.

It is, essentially, a labor issue that is at the crux of this battle in the courts, not whether Elliott is innocent or guilty.sabres_033

New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ trailer debuts during halftime of Vikings vs. Bears

Disney owns both ESPN and Lucasfilm, so with the new Star Wars movie coming up, it only made sense to do a little corporate synergy. Sure enough, during halftime of the Minnesota Vikings-Chicago Bears game on Monday night, Disney will drop the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The lesson: Never try to stretch the ball over the goal line if Earl Thomas is in the same ZIP code.

Dallas has bled a ton of clock with an epic drive to retake the lead, but Rodgers gets the ball back with a minute left and a timeout. He takes the snap staring straight into the sun … and throws a perfect back-shoulder pass to Davante Adams. On the next play, with the sun still in his eyes, he completes it to Martellus Bennett for another first down. See? He’s like a bat, or a dolphin.

Anyone who’s ever played the Packers knows how this ends: with an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass, and your heart broken. Mike McCarthy should be jailed for only going to one Super Bowl with this demigod.

After going up 20-0 in the first quarter against the Cardinals, Torrey Smith played the role of batter and hit one out of the park following his touchdown. Credit where it’s due to the team for setting this one up right. There’s a catcher, an umpire — and two random people near the plate, which isn’t baseball but we don’t care because it’s awesome.

Game Youth Gerry Cheevers Jersey That is rookie Budda Baker, in case you’re the one chiseling the headstone. He didn’t just get burned; he got burned, then juked, and then he missed a tackle. And then watched as Nelson Agholor took the Nestea plunge into the end zone to cap off a 72-yard touchdown that put Philly up 31-7.

By the way, are we still calling it the Nestea plunge? I know I’m a hundred years old and that ad campaign was forever ago, but do the youths know about it? Attention youths: Please Snapchat me about your awareness of the Nestea plunge. I’ll check my messages in 3-4 days.

It’s a bit early in the season to start making dramatic projections

Limited Mens Tyrone Crawford Jersey During the first six weeks of the season, five of the NFL’s best players have been lost to injury. They are either out for the season or will miss the majority of it. Their injuries have dimmed the league’s star power; all were ranked among the top 13 players in ESPN’s NFL Rank project this season. In some cases, these players have sparked a reshuffling of how we stack competitiveness across the league landscape.

Which teams have been the most affected by injuries? It’s a bit early in the season to start making dramatic projections, but tough times call for tough measures.

In some ways, it’s difficult to argue that a 4-2 team has been impacted too negatively by anything. However, in addition to replacing Rodgers, new quarterback Brett Hundley must fend with an offensive line that has been ravaged and hope that a similarly wrecked defense can mend its way to health.

Kaepernick, 29, is the former star quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers who started a movement, and a furor, last year by refusing to stand for the pre-game playing of the national anthem. He described his act as a protest against the shooting of black citizens by police officers who were receiving official absolution for their actions. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way, he said. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.

Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers contract before the 2017 season, becoming a free agent. Since then he hasn’t even been permitted to try out for any NFL team, according to the grievance. Meanwhile, numerous NFL teams have tried out gangs of retreads-of-the-month to fill holes in their rosters.

Carrasco can’t be faulted if he’s a little amped for this one.

Before the game, both teams wore black shirts that had #VegasStrong written on them with the city skyline under it. Walton held a team meeting Monday to have players discuss their feelings about what happened.

Rees Odhiambo Mens Jersey It was emotional, for sure, Walton said of the weekend in Las Vegas. I think everybody, it’s hard to talk about, it is hard to imagine what it was like. I think everyone was touched. It is a small world, and people know somehow, one way or another, people that were involved.

I thought Magic said it great: He said we will never let evil win, Walton continued. It was a great crowd today. The energy was phenomenal, money raised. It just shows how great the people are that live in our country and what sports is all about: bringing people together and giving them an escape sometimes.

DeBrincat made the decisive pass in a tic-tac-toe play with Cody Franson that Anisimov finished with a tap-in on a power play 10:44 into the second frame.

Youth Nick Boyle Jersey The Canadiens, who outshot the Blackhawks 42-25, have lost three in a row and scored only four goals in as many games. They went 0 for 5 on the power play and are now 0 for 14 for the season.

Coach Claude Julien juggled his lines halfway through the game, which produced several good chances but no goals against Corey Crawford, who shut Montreal down after the early Plekanec goal.

Confidence is low now, said Julien. We have to fight our way through this.

We don’t want to make excuses, we want to find solutions. That’s how you become a mentally hard team. We could use some puck luck, but there are lots of things we can do about it. I see the potential on this team that we are going to turn this around. We don’t lack confidence, we’re just squeezing the stick a little.

That makes them a long shot to survive this demolition derby.

Slotting more shooters — Ian Clark, E’Twaun Moore — around them might compromise the defense. New Orleans will have little choice if Rajon Rondo misses extended time with a sports hernia. Darius Miller looms as a wild card in striking a two-way balance. It all seems a little too complicated — like too much has to go right.

Memphis made a slower, less rangy version of this work for years, albeit in an NBA only midway through its metamorphosis into a 3-point fantasyland. Those Randolph-Gasol Grizzlies won with defense. New Orleans was solid on that end last season, and downright stingy with both behemoths on the floor.

Maintain that, and they should least hover around .500.

The strategy laid out by the Warriors and since copied by the Nuggets is to build mostly through the draft, add role players with smart trades and nail one major impact free agent.

Among the top eight players in projected minutes for the Nuggets are four homegrown draft picks, three role players acquired via trade and one high-impact contributor signed as a free agent, which is the same distribution the Warriors used in 2013-14.

When it comes to the draft, both front offices did it the hard way by nailing picks outside the top five, which is a difficult task. Golden State drafted eventual All-Stars with the No. 7, No. 11 and No. 35 picks, spots that in the lottery era have developed into All-Stars 33 percent, 15 percent and 9 percent of the time, respectively. The chance of finding All-Stars with all of them is about 1-in-200.tigers_069-115x115
