      n of the season Stitched Wes Horton Jersey , getting somebody to give them money for something they planned to do anyway.According to Avery Wilks and Maayan Schechter of newspaper, the South Carolina Senate approved $115 million in tax breaks for the Panthers to build a practice facility south of the border.The tax discounts package passed 27-15 Thursday, after days of debate about providing a free lunch of multi-billionaire owner David Tepper.The bill needs final approval by the South Carolina House, but they approved their version of the bill in March.Tepper was eager to work with South Carolina officials, and joined Gov. Henry McMaster’s inaugural committee. But he was able to see the measure pass Youth J.J. Jansen Jersey , a day after threatening to keep the practice facility in Charlotte (which he doesn’t really have room to do near their downtown Charlotte stadium).The Panthers plan to build practice fields and an indoor facility at the new complex, along with related development including hotels and a sports medicine complex.Panthers vs Giants offensive preview: The Panthers offense faces a rejuvenated Giants defense The Panthers are coming off an early bye week. While the timing seemed less than ideal, it gave the Panthers an additional week to recover from their injuries. In their first three games, the offense has scored a total of 71 points. Averaging 24 points a game may not seem like a lot, but it’s more than what was expected out of this patchwork offense that’s filled with new pieces. Although it’s unlikely the Giants will be featured in the postseason after falling to 1-3 Stitched J.J. Jansen Jersey , coming off a bye week, it’s hard to sleep on any team. The Giants’ defense is far from the prime reason why the team is struggling. If anything, their defense is the key factor as to why the Giants had a chance to win each of their games. New York will also be getting some much needed help this week with the return of defensive end Josh Mauro after sitting out a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. The Giants are also anticipating the return of linebacker Olivier Vernon and cornerback Eli Apple.Currently, the Panthers are 7.5 point favorites over the Giants. Here are three keys for Carolina’s offense to defeat New York:Utilize the zone read: The Giants struggled defending the zone read against the Jaguars, Cowboys Youth Mario Addison Jersey , and Saints. The Panthers are able to utilize the zone read because of Cam Newton’s size, athleticism, and ability to run. Carolina leads the league with 166 rushing yards per game. While Christian McCaffrey adds to the Panthers’ ground success with his shiftiness, a big reason is Newton. Defend against the pass rush: New York hasn’t had a real threatening pass rush. Connor Barwin has yet to deliver and Lorenzo Carter has only shown flashes here and there. B.J. Hill leads the team with two sacks. However, the return of top edge rusher Vernon could be a difference maker. In his two seasons with New York Stitched Mario Addison Jersey , Vernon has combined for a total 15 sacks and 66 tackles. Stopping the pass rush allows Carolina to make plays to its receivers against a weak Giants’ secondary. Expose the Secondary: As stated above, Giants have a weak secondary. While Apple will most certainly add to the depth, Giants struggle for quality beyond Landon Collins and Janoris Jenkins. Aside from being Carolina’s top rusher, McCaffrey is the team’s top receiver. CMC is Newton’s No. 1 weapon and should continue to be a threat. Exposing New York’s secondary allows for opportunities for rookies such as D.J. Moore and Ian Thomas to make plays.This game will come down to building momentum after a bye week and taking advantage of the Giant’s defensive woes. Although the Giants have some big names returning on Sunday, the Panthers should enter the game with the confidence for a win.

EDTShareTweetShareShare2019 season bold predictions: Safety Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThe safety position has long been an area of strength for the Ravens and next season figures to be no different. After releasing three-year starter Eric Weddle, Baltimore found the best possible replacement with Earl Thomas. Going on age 30, Thomas has six Pro Bowl nods and three first-team All-Pro selections under his belt. He’s a perfect fit for Don Martindale’s defense and is, in the eyes of many, the closest thing to Ed Reed the league has seen since Reed’s retirement. Eslewhere, the main safety core from last sesaon remains intact Baby Mark Andrews Jersey , including SS starter Tony Jefferson, Anthony Levine Sr., Chuck Clark, and DeShon Elliott, the latter of which missed all of last season after suffering a broken forearm in the preseason. Tony Jefferson records 100+ tackles In his two seasons with Baltimore, it feels like Tony Jefferson has yet to truly assert himself and reach his full potential. While he’s been a source of impact plays, Jefferson’s strong run-stopping and tackling skills have been somewhat mitigated by struggles in pass coverage. However, entering his 7th career season, Jefferson appears primed for his best performance yet. Having Earl Thomas roaming in the secondary will allow Jefferson to play closer to the line of scrimmage, where he’s at his best. The Ravens lost their leading tackler, C.J. Mosley, in free agency. Jefferson had 74 tackles last year and 96 tackles in his last season with the Cardinals in 2016. Playing in more of a box safety role will give Jefferson more opportunities to utilize his pursuit and nose for the ball. Earl Thomas wins Comeback Player of the YearMore often than not Best Mark Andrews Jersey , this award is given to an offensive player, usually a quarterback or one of the skill position players. However, Earl Thomas a great chance to become just the third defensive guy to earn Comeback Player of the Year since 2005. Thomas suffered a broken leg during the Seahawks Week 4 tilt against Arizona last season, marking the third consecutive season in which Thomas didn’t play all 16 games. Returning from injury after an ugly split with his former team, you can bet Thomas will be extra motivated for more reasons than one. The veteran safety had 22 tackles and three interceptions in just four games last season, which earned him a 91.3 overall grade from Pro Football Focus. By all indications, Thomas has almost fully recovered from his tibia injury and is set up for success in his first season with the Ravens. Anthony Levine Sr. plays more snaps at linebacker than safety “Co Cap” has been an underrated contributor on the Ravens defense over the past few seasons. Levine was instrumental in the team’s Week 17 victory over the Browns last season, as he recorded multiple pass deflections in the final two minutes. While safety is more of his natural position, Levine has always been more of a safety/linebacker hybrid. His skill set and versatility is valuable and figures to take on extra importance next season. Baltimore has great depth at safety with DeShon Elliot and Chuck Clark on the depth chart. However, the same can’t be said at linebacker. With Mosley gone, the Ravens will be relying on Patrick Onuwasor and Kenny Young as the starting duo next season. After those two, however Adult Mark Andrews Jersey , things are a bit murky. Even if they bring in another player in free agency, Levine should be a consistent part of the linebacker rotation. DeShon Elliott forces multiple turnovers Before the signing of Thomas, I was high on DeShon Elliott as a seamless replacement for the departed Eric Weddle. This obviously won’t be the case, but Elliott is still a talented player with high upside. It’s unfortunate that his rookie season was cut short before it began, but we saw flashes in the preseason of what Elliott can do when given the opportunity. In just a few exhibition games, he showcased a knack for making plays and a nose for the ball. Elliott won’t play a significant role next year so long as Thomas and Jefferson are in the fold, but he could find his way onto the field in limited spurts. If he can carve out a role for himself in some fashion, Elliott is capable of making an impact.

      ATLANTA (AP) — wo weeks from now Cheap Chris Lindstrom Jersey , legions of police and federal agents will be positioned to protect fans inside and outside the Atlanta stadium where the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams face off.The game will bring international attention, which makes it a potential target for terrorism, said Brian Levin, a former New York City police officer who is director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino."We fortify these events because we have to," Levin said. "They're the brightest bug lamps that attract an array of possible extremists and also unstable people as well." Authorities won't discuss specifics of their security plan. But they say they will safeguard areas beyond the downtown Mercedes-Benz Stadium and make officers visible across the city. The city's police department has worked with more than 40 state, federal and local law enforcement agencies to develop the plan, Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields said. Officers will work 12-hour shifts and will "position ourselves so that we can react immediately to whatever scenario we are confronted with," Shields said.The chief said law enforcers have been preparing for two years, during which time they visited Super Bowls in Houston and Minneapolis to observe safety measures taken by their counterparts.Recent attacks in the U.S. and around the world have taught authorities that they must be prepared to defend more than the obvious targets.Atlanta knows this well. During the Olympic Games in 1996, a man set off a pipe bomb at Centennial Olympic Park, a downtown public space that lacked the high security of the athletic venues and Olympic Village where athletes were staying. Shrapnel from the bomb tore through a crowd of concertgoers on July 27, 1996, killing a woman who was hit in the skull with a nail, and wounding more than 100 others."Our main focus at that time was on the Olympic Village Black Takkarist McKinley Jersey ," said Richard Stogner, who was in charge of finances for the Olympics and as such was involved in security meetings weeks and months before the games. Stogner witnessed the deadly violence from his office overlooking the park. He recalled walking onto his balcony and seeing a large cloud of white smoke and at least a couple of people lying on the ground.Shields said there was a desire at the time to make the park "family friendly," so the decision was made to keep security more lax there."In hindsight, that was a mistake," she said.In the days leading up to the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, the park — which has been closed off with high chain-link fencing in some places — will play a central role as it hosts numerous concerts and other game-related celebrations.In addition to increased security around the city, Atlanta Fire Rescue will put some of its paramedics on bicycles so they can reach patients in areas crowded with pedestrians, Chief Randall Slaughter said. And Shields noted that a joint operations center that will also include officials from Georgia Power and the city's mass transit system is set to open Saturday.Authorities will not take their preparations for granted, however, because terrorists "never stop creating, they never stop thinking," Shields said.In Atlanta in 1996, "the guy just decided that he wanted to blow up people, so he set a bomb off," Stogner said. "That's hard to prepare for."During a soccer game between France and Germany near Paris in November 2015 Kaleb McGary Jersey 2019 , it was outside the stadium where suicide bombers blew themselves up, killing a bystander. And in May 2017, it was as fans left a concert by singer Ariana Grande in Manchester, England, that a bomb was detonated, killing more than 20 and wounding more than 100.In recent years, threats have evolved from large terrorist groups to small cells or "lone wolves" who can be harder to identify. Some become radicalized on the internet, borrowing hatred from other groups and blending it with their own views, Levin noted.The motives of others are difficult to discern, such as the sniper in a Las Vegas high-rise who opened fire on an outdoor country music concert, killing 58 people and wounding more than 800 others in October 2017, Levin said.Cedrick Alexander, a former public safety director in the metro Atlanta county of DeKalb, said he believes Atlanta "is going to be one of the most-prepared cities in America" because of its experience handling national events.But he notes that the lesson of the Las Vegas massacre is that "you have to be prepared for anything." The Falcons have prioritized defensive key positions and largely left the offensive line and safety alone."As our pre-draft coverage rolls on, it’s time once again to look at Falcons draft tendencies with Dan Quinn as the head coach of the team. Today Kaleb McGary Atlanta Falcons Jersey , I want to look at the positional preferences this team has shown with Quinn calling the shots, because they may help us suss out where the Falcons are going in the draft ahead. WR 4CB 4LB 4RB 3DT 2DE 2G 2TE 2S 1OT 1Unlike with schools, where the Falcons have a clear LSU bias and not much else, this team absolutely has positional needs and preferences under Dan Quinn. They’ve drafted four linebackers, four cornerbacks, and four wide receivers over his four years in charge, which reflects Quinn’s strong desire to stack his team with quality corners and linebackers, and the team’s desire to add speed and talent to the bottom (and with Calvin Ridley, the top) of their corps. Those positions are followed closely by running back, where the Falcons have nailed their Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith picks and added useful depth in Brian Hill, and then defensive tackle (Grady Jarrett and Deadrin Senat), guard (Wes Schweitzer and Sean Harlow, hardly huge investments), tight end (Austin Hooper and Eric Saubert), and defensive end (Vic Beasley and Takkarist McKinley Cheap Kaleb McGary Jersey , or the only position where Quinn has invested two first rounders). They’ve never drafted a QB (obviously), true center, kicker or punter under Quinn, but every other position is covered here in some capacity. What does this mean? The Falcons have been pouring enough resources into linebacker that they now have a position group that is pretty strong at the top and genuinely deep. To a lesser extent, the same is true at cornerback, though they hurt their depth by cutting two players this offseason. They’ve also stacked up receiver and running back pretty well, mostly with their draft selections, and shouldn’t need to add to either group unless they find great value late. What that means, where the Falcons have nine draft selections and no pressing holes at positions they’ve traditionally prioritized spending draft capital on, is that we’re likely to see them dive into positions they’ve typically neglected. That’s especially true at tackle and center, where the team invested a seventh round pick (OT Jake Rodgers) and zero selections respectively, but currently “enjoy” a situation where they have no obvious long-term starter at right tackle and no young player to groom at center behind Alex Mack. They’re likely to remedy both of those situations come late April.They’ll also finally break out of their habits along the defensive line, one suspects. The Falcons have only made two major investments in DE, choosing to fill the rotation with useful veterans beyond them, but are about to either wash their hands of Vic Beasley after 2019 or potentially lose him as he chases a big contract after a big year. Whether it’s a first rounder or a late rounder Kaleb McGary Atlanta Falcons Jersey , the team needs a developmental end to step in next year when Beasley, Clayborn, and Means’ contracts are all up. Ditto defensive tackle, where Jack Crawford is a free agent after next season and the team could use young help. The team may not do both—Dan Quinn has said he wants a group of eight or nine players on the defensive front, and the team has seven players who would seem to be locked in—but one is a virtual lock.Finally, there’s safety, and it’s a position that looks strong on paper but could turn into a quagmire if even one thing goes wrong. Damontae Kazee is expected to get more run at cornerback, Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen are both returning from major injuries, and the team’s “we need depth at strong safety” comments seem to suggest they’re not in love with the very solid Sharrod Neasman, who isn’t on a long term deal in the first place. They’ll definitely draft one, even with a strong free agent group.Let’s hear your takeaways on this positional breakdown.

      At the start of some practices Lamont Gaillard Arizona Cardinals Jersey , Arizona Cardinals coach Stevelayer and one offensive player to go at it one-on-one in front of everyone else.Once it was left tackle D.J. Humphries against defensive end Chandler Jones. Another time defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche took on right guard Justin Pugh."I like it a lot," Humphries said. "It's like old school, Pop Warner stuff."A week into Wilks' first training camp as an NFL head coach, an overriding theme has been tough, physical play, especially on the offensive line."Really it comes back to my defensive background," Wilks said before the team took the field for another practice in pads Thursday. "There's nothing more demoralizing than having an offense just run the ball. Coming off the ball up front, being physical, it just really takes the air out of you."While most of the training camp takes place in the air-conditioned comfort of University of Phoenix Stadium — the Cardinals' regular- season home — Wilks moved the team outside into the desert heat for practice on Tuesday. They'll be outdoors again Friday."Hopefully it's a little hot out there so we can make sure we're locked in and focused," he said.Wilks believes battling the heat helps build mental toughness."It's all about mental with me. These guys have the skill set. They're physical. They work out all the time. They train their bodies. It's about this here," he said, pointing to his head 2019 Lamont Gaillard Jersey , "and being outside creates that element, particularly in the heat."Wilks has spent his NFL coaching career on defense, with stints as secondary coach for the Chicago Bears, San Diego Chargers and Carolina Panthers. Last year, he was promoted to defensive coordinator in Carolina and, after just one season, was hired to replace the retired Bruce Arians in Arizona.Arians was all about offense, the big-play "no risk it, no biscuit" approach. Wilks, by contrast, wants a team that runs the ball with authority and a defense that just as naturally stops the run up front."We get pretty physical out there," Humphries said. "Our defensive line Pat Tillman Jersey 2019 , both of us know what we're trying to do, what we're trying to get done. It's something that's being preached to us and it's something that we're soaking up and buying into for sure. Most of us it's second nature. We don't have no softies on the O-line. Most of us, it ain't hard to get us going, so it's good fun."Defensive players appreciate a coach with roots on that side of the ball."It's great," said safety Antoine Bethea, a 13-year NFL veteran. "He gets it. Not saying other coaches don't, but him being on the defensive side of the ball the majority of his career, he just gets what it means to be a defensive player, coming downhill, attacking."But it's the offensive line that's been singled out for praise by Wilks for its physical approach early in camp.And the line loves the idea of blowing open holes for David Johnson, one of the NFL's best running backs who returns after missing virtually all of last season with a fractured wrist.Offensive linemen, in general Blue Pat Tillman Jersey , love to run block."It's different when you're locking a guy up in pass (blocking). You get them frustrated," Humphries said. "But when you block a dude, you pound on him during the run game, you demoralize them. You take their heart.

For purposes of the franchise tag, this might be open for debate; it is possible that Ford could be classified as a hybrid DE/LB, which would affect his franchise tag salary.For the moment, we are assuming he’ll be tagged as a linebacker.While the Chiefs are indicating they will listen to trade offers — the so-called “tag-and-trade” scenario — this is likely to simply be due diligence; any NFL GM will listen to trade offers for their players.It is now likely Ford will be a Chief for at least one more season.

      ed the sluggish Tennessee Titans and turned toward midfield.The flashback for the Dallas Cowboys was just as disheartening as the original.Byard mimicked Terrell Owens' mocking celebration on the star logo at the 50-yard line from 18 years ago Michael Brockers Jersey , Marcus Mariota accounted for three touchdowns and the Titans spoiled Amari Cooper's Dallas debut with a 28-14 victory on Monday night.The end-zone pick of Dak Prescott came after Mariota fumbled on the first two Tennessee possessions. Just as T.O. did at old Texas Stadium 18 years ago, Byard ran to midfield, under the huge videoboard at spacious AT&T Stadium, and spread his arms.Owens did it twice in a blowout San Francisco win over a bad Dallas team that time. This win by the Titans (4-4) ended their three-game losing streak while handing the Cowboys (3-5) their first loss in four home games and making their road to the playoffs a difficult one."It was huge," Mariota said of Byard, while adding that he didn't see the celebration. "The defense has done an unbelievable job throughout the year in building us up. They found ways to give us plays, to get turnovers."The Cowboys looked like the team headed for a blowout win, but led just 7-0 after Mariota's early miscues because of Brett Maher's missed 38-yard field goal on the opening possession and Prescott's ill-advised throw into double coverage."That was the difference. Simple as that," said Prescott, who lost a fumble at his 40-yard line to set up Tennessee's tiebreaking score in the third quarter. "Defense gives a turnover there. We're up seven points and I go down there and try to force the ball and give it right back to them."Cooper scored the first Dallas touchdown after DeMarcus Lawrence stripped the ball from Mariota . The two-time Pro Bowl receiver finished with five catches for 58 yards after coming over from Oakland in a trade for a first-round pick during the open week.Given another chance when what would have been a third straight fumble to start the game was overturned by a review that showed Luke Stocker didn't have the ball long enough on a catch, Mariota led an 80-yard drive capped by Derrick Henry's 1-yard plunge for a 7-7 tie.Mariota converted two third-and-9s with passes and a shorter third down with a run on his first TD drive, setting the stage for the Titans to convert 11 of 14 third downs.The Cowboys fell flat in 15-year tight end Jason Witten's first trip home since retiring to become lead analyst for "Monday Night Football."Dallas had just 108 yards in the second half — the bulk of those on a desperation drive down two scores late — and was booed several times at the end of failed drives.After getting sacked on third down with nobody realizing Tennessee had called timeout in a 7-7 game in the second quarter, Mariota completed a 36-yarder to Darius Jennings before a screen pass to Dion Lewis went 18 yards for a touchdown.Mariota broke a 14-14 tie in the third quarter when he pulled the ball out of Lewis' gut at the last second and delivered a 7-yard shovel pass to Jonnu Smith to put the Titans ahead for good. Mariota's 9-yard scoring run all but sealed things with 4:38 to go.Mariota was 21 of 29 for 240 yards without an interception and had 32 yards rushing. Lewis had 62 yards rushing and 60 receiving coming off a career-high 155 scrimmage yards in his last game.Star Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott finished with 61 yards after a hot start. Prescott was 21 of 31 for 243 yards and two scores — 4 yards to Cooper and 23 yards to Allen Hurns. The two turnovers were Prescott's first at home this season.T.O. FLASHBACKThere was something else familiar about Byard's celebration: a Dallas defender trying to do something about it.George Teague famously knocked Owens off the star back then Ethan Westbrooks Jersey , and Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones made a similar move on Byard and the group that joined the celebration. Owens seemed to get a kick out of the whole thing on Twitter."I was actually expecting somebody to knock my head off," said Byard, who thought about the possible celebration at the team hotel. "I was like, 'If we get to the 50, if we get enough guys to the 50, we are just going to start dancing on the star.'"WITTEN TRIBUTEThe Cowboys paid tribute to Witten with a pregame video on the giant board hanging over the field. The franchise leader in games, catches and yards receiving wiped his eyes when a small inset of him was shown during the video, but seemed to have gained his composure when he was shown on the full screen. Witten waved, smiled and tapped his chest around his heart several times as the crowd roared.INJURIESDallas LB Sean Lee pulled up with a hamstring injury while trying to cover Smith on a 26-yard completion to the Titans tight end. Lee didn't return. ...

Their offense can’t get rolling, the defense can’t defend the pass, and quarterback Carson Wentz’s fractured vertebra sits atop a bulging list of injury problems.Article continues below ...But the Eagles’ gritty performance in a 43-35 win at the Coliseum last season is still fresh in most football minds in Los Angeles. The Rams (11-2) would never take the champs lightly heading into the teams’ Sunday night showdown.“I still look at them like a Super Bowl-caliber team,” Rams receiver Robert Woods said. “Still the defending champs. We get a chance to play them in prime time. We get to play at home. We get to play well and redeem ourselves from last week.”The Rams can’t spend any time thinking about the Eagles’ woes John Sullivan Jersey , either. Los Angeles is coming off a dispiriting 15-6 loss in chilly Chicago during which it failed to score a touchdown for the first time in coach Sean McVay’s tenure.McVay has never lost consecutive games, and no team has beaten the Rams twice during his two seasons — but Philadelphia has a chance to do both. The coach has no trouble getting his players’ attention this week with the combination of their second loss and a visit from the champs.Wentz did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and on Saturday was declared out for the Rams game. Wentz’s second NFL season ended at the Coliseum a year ago when he tore a ligament in his left knee, but Nick Foles relieved him and led the Eagles to that win over his former franchise, clinching the NFC East in the process.Along with his Super Bowl MVP award, Foles always has motivation against the Rams: He started 11 games for the team in St. Louis in 2015, but he asked to leave after the Rams drafted Jared Goff in the ensuing spring.“Doesn’t affect much, because Carson is a great football player, but they also were able to win a Super Bowl with Nick playing really high-level football,” McVay said.More things to watch when Mike Trout’s favorite team visits him in Southern California:DEFENDING HOMEA huge contingent of Eagles fans undoubtedly will turn out at the Coliseum, but the Rams are finally building a home-field advantage that everyone felt during their 54-51 win over the Chiefs last month. The Rams are 6-0 at the Coliseum this season after going 4-11 in their temporary arena during the first two years.HARD TO SUBOne of the overlooked challenges for defenses that have to face the Rams and their high-powered offense is the difficulty in trying to rotate defensive players into the game because Los Angeles uses the same personnel group — three receivers, one tight end, one running back — almost the entire game.“The Rams don’t substitute very often,” Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. “Even in short yardage and goal line Cory Littleton Jersey , they’re in the same personnel group. It does make it a little bit more difficult to sub. We’re going to have to be surgical with our substitutions, particularly on third down.”The Eagles struggled against the Saints, who also use an up-tempo offense. New Orleans beat Philadelphia 48-7 last month.“We didn’t react very well to it against the Saints. That had to do with a lot of the big plays we gave up in that game,” Schwartz said. “But we have a little bit more experience with it now. We have to do better.”GURLEY’S GAMETodd Gurley’s 28 yards rushing in Chicago were his fewest since his rookie season in 2015, and Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliott edged in front of him in the NFL rushing race . McVay blamed himself for not getting the ball into the hands of his franchise running back more often, and he seems determined to rectify that oversight.Rather than testing Fletcher Cox and the Eagles’ statistically stout run defense, the Rams may be tempted to throw excessively against the Eagles’ injury-riddled secondary, which likely means more targets for Gurley in the passing game.SPREADING IT AROUNDSince receiver Golden Tate arrived in Philadelphia, coaches have struggled to incorporate him into the offense. Tate only had one catch last week and played just 20 snaps.The offense has various options, including tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert and receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor.But the Eagles traded a third-round pick for Tate, so he was expected to be a major part of the game plan each week.“It’s just trying to find the right balance and get those guys in the right position so that they can make the plays we need to help us win,” offensive coordinator Mike Groh said.

      DAVIE Laremy Tunsil Jersey , Fla. (AP) —nother miracle.After beating New England with a pass and double lateral on the final play, the Dolphins are 7-6 and could use some more magic in the next three weeks to make the playoffs.Coach Adam Gase figures his Dolphins probably need to sweep their remaining games — at Minnesota, home against Jacksonville and at Buffalo — to earn an AFC wild-card berth.But when asked Monday if he’s optimistic, Gase grinned.“I’d better be,” he said. “We just won a game that … I like where we’re at. We’re alive.”The Dolphins saved their season with the play borrowed from Boise State and thus called “Boise.” Kenyan Drake took the last lateral and ran 52 yards to complete a 69-yard score for a 34-33 victory .The last player Drake eluded was 6-foot-6 tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose lumbering presence at the back of the Patriots‘ prevent defense prompted plenty of second-guessing in Boston and elsewhere.“I saw it was Gronk in front of me, and I was just like, ‘Look, I’ve got somewhere to be,'” Drake said. “I had to get in the end zone.”For long-suffering fans Cordrea Tankersley Jersey , it was a moment to savor — the first time in the Dolphins’ 52-year history they won a game with a TD and no time left in regulation.“I’ve witnessed in person a lot of great sports moments in my life, but as far as football goes, I can’t say I have EVER seen anything quite like that!” tweeted Jack Nicklaus, who is the grandfather of Dolphins tight end Nick O’Leary but better known for his own sporting dramas. “Fantastic Fin-ish! Wow. WOW! Go Fins!”As a result of the improbable win, the Dolphins are unlikely playoff race participants.They’ve been outgained by 1,177 yards and outscored by 55 points, and rank 29th in the NFL in both offense and defense. But only five AFC teams have a better record, and they’re tied with three other teams in the race for the last wild-card berth.The challenge now for the Dolphins is to build on their miracle.“It means nothing if we don’t finish the season strong and find our way into the playoffs,” receiver Kenny Stills said.Gase was so ready to move on he turned off his phone soon after the game and ignored incoming congratulatory messages.“I was working on Minnesota,” he said Raekwon McMillan Jersey , a little sheepishly.As preparations began, quarterback Ryan Tannehill showed good mobility in the team complex less than 24 hours after the win. He played the second half against New England with an injured right ankle .“He’s sore,” Gase said. “He’s walking around, so that’s good.”The Dolphins also hope AFC interception leader Xavien Howard can play after missing the Patriots game because of a left knee injury, but his status is uncertain.Tannehill has a passer rating of 129.9 in three games since returning from a shoulder injury that sidelined him for five games. His 105.7 rating for the season ranks sixth in the NFL.“He has played the way we need him to play these last few games,” Gase said.Tannehill was credited with three touchdown passes against the Patriots, including on the final play when his toss to Stills covered the first 14 yards before rugby broke out.The play kept the Dolphins relevant, at least for another week, Tannehill said.“We know the situation we’re in,” he said. “Before this game we’re sitting at 6-6 and on the outside looking in. We know every game from here on out is pretty much do or die.”The Dolphins remain long shots. But after what happened Sunday Charles Harris Jersey , it might to unwise to count them out.NFL Week 1 Late Game live chat The Miami Dolphins had a 1pm Eastern game this week, but that definitely is not the only football being played today. As the early games come to a close, it is time to sit back and just enjoy some football with the late games. Who is playing? Well, we of course have you covered.The Kansas City Chiefs are at the Los Angeles Chargers in the only CBS late game. On Fox, which has the double-header for this week, the Seattle Seahawks at Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys at Carolina Panthers, and Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals games are all options. The majority of the eastern half of the United States will see the Cowboys at Panthers game, while Arizona, Virginia Jason Sanders Jersey , and Maryland will primarily be seeing the Redskins at Cardinals. Most of northern California through Washington and across to Colorado, most of Nebraska, parts of South Dakota, and most of Montana will see the Seahawks at Broncos.You can join in the live chat in the comments for all of the games.

It was a Fitz-focused episode recapping the start of OTA’s, but what else did we learn about the Arizona Cardinals?The Revenge of the Birds podcast3 Things we learned from Cardinals Flight Plan Episode 7 “Follow The Leader”New,6commentsIt was a Fitz-focused episode recapping the start of OTA’s, but what else did we learn about the Arizona Cardinals? 3 Things we learned from Cardinals Flight Plan Episode 7 “Follow The Leader”Steven Bisig-USA TODAY SportsThe Arizona Cardinals had to find a way to top one of their most amazing Flight Plan episodes yet following the 2019 NFL Draft episode.How could they possibly attempt to do it?With Larry Fitzgerald being the main focus, of course.If you haven’t seen the episode yet you can check it out below along with the other 6 episodes in the series.So what did we learn?Here are THREE big takeaways:#1: Larry Fitzgerald might really BE the most amazing dude on the planetOkay, maybe not “new” news we’ve learned.But still impressive.Fitz took time out of his schedule (potentially it seemed like even missing the first day of OTA’s) to go early to a Dave & Buster’s to play games with a young boy named Caleb whose mother passed away as a result of Machado Joseph disease.Imagining how it wasn’t like it was some twitter push or some giant marketing campaign, or that it wasn’t even PUBLICIZED until this episode dropped, it shows how classy Larry truly is.As he said Adult Christian Kirk Jersey , he heard about the situation and his heart went out to the child and I have to say...does the man ever sleep?Garth Brooks said he might be the most amazing human being he’s ever met and you might have to believe it now.#2: The OTHER pair of rookie roommates are pushing each otherWe learned from Matthew Berry last week that Kyler Murray and Hakeem Butler are roommates (incredible on one hand given a nearly 8 inch difference between them in height):This week we learned of two other roommates staying together in the hotel in rookie wide receivers Andy Isabella and Keesean Johnson.Both seem to be fast friends willing to push each other and these bonds of friendship definitely will be something that makes the tough grind of the NFL just a little bit easier.Perhaps we can even project a bit into some other roommate pairings from this as well?Maybe defensive backs Byron Murphy and Deionte Thompson are bunking together?Defensive linemen Zach Allen and Michael Dogbe?Offensive linemen Lamont Galliard and Joshua Miles, perhaps?Those actually seem to make a lot of sense (and if so....is poor Caleb Wilson all by himself?).#3: MIchael Bidwill & the Cardinals raised the bar this year for winningMichael Bidwill’s comments were probably the most revealing thing about the episode.It’s true that there’s a wind of change and positivity in the desert.And he made his expectations PRETTY clear.Now granted he didn’t say “playoffs” or “Super Bowl” but he does expect the team to win next year.How many?Not sure, but the idea of a “5-11 growing team” that many national pundits and Las Vegas expects them to be seemed like it wouldn’t fly for him or anyone else.Will that be a factor in this 2nd attempted Arizona rebuild?Perhaps it will, and perhaps it won’t.We’ll have to wait to find out, I guess...What were your thoughts on the episode?Sound off in the comments section or go and @ Larry and let him know how awesome of a helping hand he was to young Caleb!

      ATLANTA (AP)Stifled by the salary cap Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey 2019 , the Atlanta crative contract.Not this year, at least.Now the question is: Will the star receiver show up for training camp?The Falcons informed Jones several weeks ago that they would not renegotiate his current $71.5 million package, which still has three years remaining and included $47 million in guaranteed money, according to a person familiar with the discussions. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the talks have not been made public.The team’s decision, which was first reported by The Athletic, does not preclude talks after the season on a deal more in line with Jones’ status as one of the NFL’s top receivers. But the Falcons do not believe they have enough financial leeway under the cap to renegotiate the contract in 2018.The team hasn’t been told if Jones will be at training camp. Players are required to report next Thursday, with the first practice the following day.Atlanta already agreed to a five-year Black Logan Paulsen Jersey , $150 million extension with quarterback Matt Ryan, the most lucrative deal in NFL history. The team is also focused on working out new contracts for defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, offensive guard Jake Matthews and safety Ricardo Allen.A flurry of new contracts during the offseason dropped Jones, who makes an average salary of $14.25 million, out of the top half-dozen on the list of the league’s highest-paid receivers. Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans, Cleveland’s Jarvis Landry and Kansas City’s Sammy Watkins are among those now making more per year than Jones, a two-time All-Pro who caught 88 passes for 1 Logan Paulsen Jersey 2019 ,444 yards last season.In 2015, Jones turned in one of the greatest seasons by a receiver with 136 receptions for 1,871 yards and eight touchdowns. He is a five-time Pro Bowler.In an apparent sign of his unhappiness, Jones skipped organized team workouts at the team’s training facility this summer, as well as a mandatory minicamp. But he apparently took part in Ryan’s private passing camp in California along with about a dozen of his teammates this month.Jones has gone silent on social media and hasn’t talked with the Atlanta media in months. In one of his rare media appearances, he told TMZ that he has a good relationship with the franchise that pulled off a huge trade with Cleveland to make him a first-round pick in 2011.”Everyone wants a story right now. There’s no story to be told,” Jones insisted. ”I’m just working on getting myself better. I’m just working on myself right now. That’s all that is. There’s no bad blood between me and the team or anything like that.”Jones remains in the good graces of coach Dan Quinn Qadree Ollison Atlanta Falcons Jersey , who didn’t seem at all upset when Jones skipped the minicamp .”Sometimes football and business intersect,” Quinn said. ”That’s OK and that happens a lot.”Quinn has talked constantly of ”brotherhood” and making sure players do everything as a team. For instance, the players stood together as a team on the sideline during the national anthem for all games after two players kneeled in protest early in the 2017 season.Quinn doesn’t think Jones’ absence has affected the Falcons’ unity.”Do we want everybody here all the time? Hell yeah, like all the time,” the coach said. ”What I’d say is if you ask to a man, the guy is a hell of a teammate, and the time he spends here Color Rush Qadree Ollison Jersey , the way he mentors people, how hard he plays, there is plenty of brotherhood in Julio.”— HAMILTON, Ontario (AP) — Jerry Glanville has resigned as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ defensive coordinator because of personal reasons.The Ticats announced Friday that the 77-year-old Glanville would not return for a second season with the Canadian Football League team.“I hate that I won’t be able to come back to Hamilton next season to finish what we started in 2018,” said Glanville, the former head coach of the NFL’s Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons. “The future is bright because there are so many good people and great players throughout the organization. I will be a Tiger-Cat for life.”After being promoted to head coach earlier week, Orlondo Steinauer said he wanted Glanville to return.“It was an honor to work with coach Glanville last season and we’re obviously disappointed he won’t be back Qadree Ollison Atlanta Falcons Jersey ,” Steinauer. “We fully understand and support his decision, and will now continue to work on finalizing a coaching staff for 2019.”Working under former head coach June Jones this year, Glanville helped guide the Tiger-Cats to an 8-10 regular-season record and a spot in the East final.FOX Fantasy AutoForm a Racing Team, Compete for PrizesPlay Now!

      Entering Week 10 of the NFL season Mark Andrews Men Jersey , the AFC North is becoming clearer. Pittsburgh leads the division at 5-2-1.ird at 4-5 after three straight losses. Cleveland remains at the bottom with a record of 2-6-1. Both the Steelers and Bengals will take on two of the top teams in the league this week, while the Browns host the Falcons and the Ravens enjoy a much-needed bye week.Pittsburgh Steelers (5-2-1)Pittsburgh is on a four-game winning streak heading into Week 10. The Steelers must now face the 6-2 Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night Football in a game featuring two of the NFL’s best teams.The Panthers are red hot, winning three in a row. Quarterback Cam Newton is having a great season so far, and tight end Greg Olsen has returned from injury to produce at a high level as well. The strength of the offense, however, is the rushing attack Color Rush Mark Andrews Jersey , which is second-best in the league. Pittsburgh will have to stop the run and force Newton to win the game with his arm, while also keeping tabs on the elusive Christian McCaffrey out of the backfield in the pass game. On offense, Pittsburgh must attack Carolina’s young corners with Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster. The Steelers have the fourth-ranked passing attack in the NFL, and the Panthers have the 19th pass defense. Pittsburgh must remain committed to James Conner on the ground as well. A win against Carolina on Thursday Night Football will solidify the Steelers as one of the best teams in the NFL and help to extend their lead in the division. Cincinnati Bengals (5-3)Cincinnati returns from their bye week to face possibly the hottest team in the entire league, the 7-1 New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees is in the middle of an incredible season, throwing for 18 touchdowns to only one interception. Running back Alvin Kamara has proven to be one of the league’s elite offensive skill players rushing for nine touchdowns as well as recording three receiving scores Mark Andrews Jersey Boys , and wide receiver Michael Thomas is also one of the best in the NFL at his position. Thomas has 880 receiving yards and five touchdowns through the first nine weeks of the season. New Orleans also signed veteran receiver Dez Bryant this past week, although it is unclear if he will play or not on Sunday. The Bengals are faced with the almost impossible task of having to keep a lid on Thomas and contain Kamara underneath while also generating consistent pressure on Brees. On offense, establishing the run game with Joe Mixon will be instrumental in extending drives and keeping Brees off the field. Star wide receiver A.J. Green will miss Sunday’s gamewith a toe injury that could potentially require surgery and sideline him for multiple weeks. This leaves a huge weight on Tyler Boyd and John Ross to step up in Green’s absence. While Boyd is having a solid season as the team’s second receiver, Ross has yet to make much of an impact with only 79 receiving yards and two touchdowns. Improving to 6-3 with a win over an elite Saints team would go a long way in helping Cincinnati return to the playoffs.Cleveland Browns (2-7-1)What was thought to be a bounce-back season for Cleveland has quickly spun out of control. The Browns are currently on a four-game losing streak as they get ready to face the 4-4 Atlanta Falcons.The Falcons have won three straight games and are seemingly improving every week. Matt Ryan has played exceptionally well in 2018, throwing for 2,685 yards and 19 touchdowns to only three interceptions. Ryan has led Atlanta to the second-ranked passing offense in the NFL. Rookie corner Denzel Ward will have his hands full on Sunday for Cleveland. Rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley has flourished thus far with seven touchdowns on the season Cheap Mark Andrews Jersey , and he has been a perfect compliment to the elite Julio Jones.Luckily for the Browns, the Falcons defense is no where near as good as their offense, ranking 28th in the league in total defense and surrendering 28.2 points per game. This game could turn into a high scoring shootout if quarterback Baker Mayfield is able to keep up with Ryan and minimize mistakes. Mayfield has had an up-and-down season so far, throwing only three more touchdowns (10) than interceptions. Although the season is lost, a win against Atlanta would do a lot for the confidence of this young Cleveland team.

      ds in the first half Christian McCaffrey Panthers Jersey , Panthers rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore got the third quarter off to a good start by ripping off an 82-yard catch. Moore took what looked to be about a 15 yard gain and turned it into a 82-yarder after breaking the initial tackle. The only disappointment was he didn’t score. I can forgive him for that. I’ll take the great hands and ability to break tackles over top end sprinter speed any day. He’s still plenty fast anyway.On the season Moore now has 487 yards receiving on the season, a 50% increase in one game. The league has noticed.What is ironic is that on the day their first round pick finally looked like a No. 1 wide receiver, their actual No. 1 wide receiver Devin Funchess dropped three passes.

      ll vs. Denver Editor’s note: Every week http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-ron-parker-jersey , our in-house medical expert, Aaron Borgmann, will share some notes on the injuries coming out of One Arrowhead Drive.LB Ben Niemann — Hamstring strainAs we spoke about last week, the team will want to make sure someone that takes so many reps on special teams is fully ready as to not risk re-injury to avoid further setbacks. Once full practice or no limitation in practice has been designated, like it was Thursday, he’s probably a good bet that the player will be full go for the game.LB Terrace Smith — Shin contusionTypically seen due to a hit from a leg or helmet, shin contusions don’t sound like much but can actually be very painful due to the amount of swelling that can build up in the lower leg compartment. Often, symptoms do not show up until the next day, so the player or medical staff may have not been alerted to it until after the game or even a day or so later. Swelling control and early motion are key here in order for the player to return to practice and play. A shin contusion can be quite debilitating if left untreated, but it sounds like the player is on the correct path to return. Player will be monitored throughout the week and potentially even need additional padding in the game if it is severe enough.LB Dee Ford — Groin strainAs was eluded to by head coach Andy Reid during his press conference today, the player sounds as if he is doing fairly well. “He’s actually doing very well right now. We’re optimistic,” is a great sign for the player’s status. Indications were that this would not be a long-term situation. Not to be understated is the extra day of treatment and rehab due to the Monday night game. The medical staff will undoubtedly ease this player back to action whenever he returns to practice. Any soft tissue muscle strains must be treated with care due to the risk of lingering re-injury. At this player’s position, speed and quick movement are essential Womens Tony Gonzalez Jersey , so if the player does return to practice this week in some capacity, fans can be optimistic as well that all parties feel as if he can contribute on some level.S Eric Berry – Sore heelNO CHANGEAaron Borgmann is the owner of Borgmann Rehab Solutions and a former 12 year NFL Physical Therapist and Athletic TrainerFive things to watch as the Chiefs host the Jaguars The last time the Kansas City Chiefs played the Jacksonville Jaguars — just the season before last — the Jaguars were 2-6, and the Chiefs were 6-2.The Chiefs had an average offense and a stout defense.The Jaguars had a below-average offense and defense.Things have changed quite a bit since then.Here are five things to keep an eye on during the game:1. To blitz, or not to blitz?David Butler II-USA TODAY SportsOn Monday, the Denver Broncos blitzed Patrick Mahomes quite a bit, hoping to shake him up and render him ineffective.According to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, the Broncos were running some blitz packages the Chiefs had not seen on film.It worked for a while — that is, until the Chiefs had time to figure out what the Broncos were doing, and Mahomes got himself settled down.Could this be a formula the Jaguars might attempt?It’s possible.The Jaguars don’t tend to blitz a lot, so they could see this as a way to catch the Chiefs off-guard and rattle Mahomes the same way the Broncos did.But if we believe what the Chiefs constantly say — that Mahomes is a super-quick study and doesn’t tend to make the same mistakes twice — whether or not it would work is open to question.Either way, one battle to watch will be between Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. — their best pass rusher — and Chiefs right tackle Mitchell Schwartz.2. To Tyreek, or not to Tyreek?Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY SportsNow that Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey — like San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin before him — has decided to make Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill an object of trash talk this week, you have to wonder if the Chiefs will take advantage of this situation.It would be pretty tempting for chess-master Andy Reid to simply use Tyreek Hill as a decoy to keep Ramsey — easily the best cornerback the Jaguars have — out of the picture Christian Okoye Jersey , which would provide openings for other Chiefs receivers.It’s not as if the Chiefs don’t have some other ones that are pretty good, too.On the other hand... Ramsey isn’t quite all that, either.And Ramsey is clearly under-informed about Hill’s ability as a wide receiver.We could easily see Reid decide to just let them settle this matter between themselves.if you don’t see Hill getting a lot of targets early in the game, Reid has probably decided to make his chess move.But if that happens, you should still expect Hill to get a big catch late in the game.After all... it’s no fun to use Hill as a decoy if you can’t spring him as a surprise later.3. To tackle, or not to tackle?Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY SportsYou don’t need me to tell you the Chiefs need to improve their tackling.We’ve all been talking about it all week.Especially against Denver on Monday night, the Chiefs defense seemed to be unable to get anybody wrapped up and on the ground.Do they need to get this cleaned up?Absolutely.It would go a long way towards improving the Chiefs run defense.But we should remember that it’s pretty easy to lose sight of the fact that the other team gets paid to play, too.Players like Royce Freeman of the Broncos, Austin Ekeler of the Los Angeles Chargers and James Conner of the Pittsburgh Steelers tend to break a lot of tackles when they’re playing teams besides the Chiefs, too.Here you might be tempted to point out that since Leonard Fournette has been ruled out of Sunday’s game, we might not see as much of this problem against the Jaguars.But don’t kid yourself:T.J. Yeldon is no slouch.The Chiefs need to pay attention to that guy.And wrap him up.4. Can Eric Murray continue to improve?Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThis season hasn’t played out quite like we expected.Back in June, the Nerd Squad’s Matt Lane wrote that Eric Murray could be a player to watch at safety this season. But back in June, we all thought he’d be trying to take a spot alongside the All-World Eric Berry http://www.chiefslockerroom.com/authentic-breeland-speaks-jersey , instead of Ron Parker — a player the Chiefs released after last season.Still, slowly but steadily, Murray has begun finding his way — and against the Broncos, had his best game of the season, with five tackles and an athletic interception.If he can continue to improve, it’s possible that he could keep the job when — and if — Berry returns to the field.Let’s keep an eye on this young man.5. How will the weather affect this game?Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty ImagesAt this writing on Friday morning, forecasters expect rain at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon — not just rain, but thunderstorms.And there’s likely to be a lot of rain in Kansas City before Sunday even arrives, making the condition of Arrowhead’s natural-grass surface even more of a concern.How will this affect the passing game on which the Chiefs have depended thus far this season? How will it affect the size and enthusiasm of the home crowd, on which the Chiefs defense so often depends?Much will depend on the amount of rainfall — and right now, it’s looking like there will be a lot.

The Rams have said that the decision to draft former Memphis running back Darrell Henderson wasn’t a reflection on the status of starter Todd Gurley, but was only about Henderson bringing a different element to the offense. That element may be similar to what Alvin Kamara does in New Orleans.Rams General Manager Les Snead said in the team’s draft room that he was eager to get Henderson, telling coach Sean McVay and two other team staffers that he was concerned that if the Rams didn’t draft Henderson Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , some other team would and the Rams would find out the hard way what Henderson was capable of doing when they played against him.“The Memphis guy gives us a Kamara element,” Snead said. “We’ll play against him and you’ll feel it.”McVay said the Rams think Henderson will bring skills to the table beyond what Gurley does.“We’d identified him as a guy that has a specific skill set, that really can do some unique things for us offensively,” McVay said. “He was one of those guys that stood out for us Bobby Evans Jersey nfl draft , so we’re excited about getting him here.”Henderson had 214 carries for 1,909 yards last year at Memphis, a whopping 8.9 yards per carry.

      ft prospect for the Miami Dolphins this year Womens Walt Aikens Jersey , albeit a prospect who may not be a pick for the team with the 13th overall selection. As we..."We have already taken a closer look at one potential draft prospect for the Miami Dolphins this year, albeit a prospect who may not be a pick for the team with the 13th overall selection. As we continue the list, we bounce from Florida pass rusher Jachai Polite back to the offensive side of the ball with our second offensive tackle of the series.The Dolphins are expected to focus on the foundation of the franchise this season - unless something weird happens in Thursday’s first round - with several of the picks likely to land on the line of scrimmage. With many of the first 12 picks on Thursday expected to address quarterback and pass rusher needs, the Dolphins could be in position to pick up one of the premier offensive linemen in the Draft. Washington State tackle Andre Dillard could be sitting there just waiting for Miami.Andre Dillard bioAge: 23 (March 1996)Born: Woodinville, WAHigh School: Woodinville High School, Woodinville, WACollege: Washington StateAfter a redshirt season in 2014, Dillard appeared in three games in 2015, starting twice, all at left tackle. He then started all 13 games in 2016 at left tackle and was named to the second team of the All-Pac-12 by Pro Football Focus. He again started all 13 games at left tackle in 2017 as a redshirt junior and was an honorable mention for All-Pac-12. As a redshirt senior last year, Dillard started all 13 games at left tackle and allowed just one sack on the season. He was named to the first team All-Pac 12, second team All-American by Sports Illustrated, and third team All-American by the Associated Press.Andre Dillard measurablesHeight: 6’5”Weight: 315 lbs.Arms: 33-1/2”Hands: 10”40-yard dash: 4.96Bench press: 24Vertical jump: 29.0Broad jump: 118.03-cone drill: 7.4420-yard shuttle: 4.4What they are sayingBill Marshall, Cat Scratch Reader -There will always be questions with left tackle prospects who play in an air raid scheme with wide splits. The purpose of the wide splits was to create passing lanes for the quarterback. In recent years, Mike Leach and other air raid coordinators have reduced the splits to run more power run concepts. Regardless, during Dillard’s time as a starter he was primarily seen in a 2 point stance. That shouldn’t be seen as a negative though. As a run blocker, Dillard isn’t the most technically sound. However, his core strength as a pass blocker does bode well for him to translate it as a run blocker too.Lance Zierlein, NFL.com - Talented four-year starter at left tackle with outstanding feet who offers an instant athletic upgrade for teams getting battered from the blind-side. Because of his scheme DeVante Parker Jersey , Dillard will be a little behind in terms of his feel for set points and firing off the ball in the run game. While he could play with a little more ferocity as a finisher, he has the athletic ability to make all the blocks and the protection talent to become a good, early starter on the left side. Comparison: Eugene Monroe. Projection: 1st round.Joe Marino, The Draft Network - Dillard’s foot speed, length, lack of functional strength and ability to win on the move make him an ideal candidate to play tackle in an inside/outside zone running scheme. Dillard enters the NFL with a ton of experience but unfortunately the Washington State scheme translates poorly to what he’ll be asked to at the next level and his learning curve is fairly steep considering the new techniques he will have to learn. I like his ceiling, particularly in pass protection, but he’s more of a developmental prospect than his physical upside and resume suggest.Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports - Andre Dillard is an impressive athlete who started 39 straight games for Washington State. He excels in pass protection though he has limited experience in run blocking because of the offense he played in for Mike Leach. Strengths: Dillard has smooth feet, long arms, a good mirroring technique, and shows he can effortlessly deals with twists/stunts and passing blockers off to other offensive linemen. He also has the athleticism to get out in space on screen passes, and the ability to pull in the run game. Weaknesses: Played in a pass-heavy offense and was rarely asked to run block. Dillard doesn’t have the same anchor as Oklahoma’s Cody Ford, Florida’s Taylor, West Virginia’s Yodny Cajuste or Kansas State’s Dalton Risner but is more athletic than they are. Comparison: Terron Armstead.Gavino Borquez, USA Today Draft Wire - Dillard has great size and a compact build. He has some of the smoothest footwork in this entire class. He’s a mobile player, showing fluid movement skills with his lower body, core strength at the point of attack to control the edge, and active hands. He knows how to use his reach to shut down edge rushers by optimizing his wingspan. He can get out of his stance quickly and pull into space efficiently. Run blocking isn’t his strong suit http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/authentic-reshad-jones-jersey , as he will overextend his hips, lunging and finding himself off balance. Dillard will need to get better at holding onto his blocks, showing poor hand placement at times.Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball - In the passing-driven NFL, teams are always looking for dependable left tackles who can help keep the quarterback healthy. It can be very difficult to find left tackles with Dillard’s natural size, speed and athleticism, so those qualities make him an intriguing prospect for the NFL. There are a lot of natural strengths to Dillard. He has very quick feet with surprising athleticism that allows him to get depth in his drop and neutralize speed rushers. He should be an asset to take on the fast edge rushers, as he can get off the corner and prevent them from running the loop around the edge. With his quick feet and ability to bend at the knee, Dillard doesn’t have to reach after rushers and is not a waist bender. He does a nice job of latching onto the defenders and riding them around upfield to keep them from putting heat on the quarterback. There are times when Dillard allows rushers to get speed upfield, but he has demonstrated nice recoverability to push the rushers deep and around the pocket to protect his tackle. For the NFL, Dillard could be very valuable to protect his quarterback against fast edge rushers. Dillard could have issues in the NFL with powerful edge rushers due to possessing no anchor. Strong bull rushers could give him problems, and that will be the major point of emphasis for his improvement at the pro level. Comparison: David Bakhtiari.Video breakdowns and filmShould Dolphins be interested?Dillard is going to be an exceptional offensive lineman for some team, but is he the right pick for the Dolphins? If the coaches believe he can quickly learn to flip his technique to play the right side, leaving Laremy Tunsil on the left, there is no reason for the Dolphins to not select Dillard - assuming he is still on the board. If you assume Miami is looking toward 2020 and selecting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, you need to find a right tackle that will be able to block the left-haded quarterback’s blind side. He could be the best player available at 13, and the Dolphins could make that pick. It would not be a bad choice, but it would require some coaching this summer to have him ready for the season. Sam Hubbard had missed on his attempt to get Ryan Tannehill.Next thing he knew, the ball was flying right toward him and there was nobody between him and the end zone.The rookie had an improbably easy time completing Cincinnati’s big comeback.Michael Johnson returned an interception for the tying score Womens Jerome Baker Jersey , and Hubbard went 19 yards with a fumble for the clinching touchdown Sunday, rallying the Bengals from a 17-point deficit to a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins.Not even those involved could explain it.“I really don’t know what happened,” Hubbard said. “I just saw the ball and it stuck. Thank God I was able to hold onto it and waddle into the end zone.”With Joe Mixon back from knee surgery and the defense making more game-turning plays in the fourth quarter, Cincinnati (4-1) extended its best start since its 2015 playoff season. This one came a week after A.J. Green caught a winning touchdown pass in Atlanta with 7 seconds left.“These NFL games are crazy, man,” Green said. “It’s an up-and-down roller coaster ride. You ride it and hope you come out on top.”The Dolphins (3-2) had plenty of blame to go around for their meltdown, helping the Bengals score those 27 consecutive points with a variety of mistakes 鈥?the biggest ones by their quarterback.Andy Dalton threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to Mixon to start the comeback, completing a drive that was extended by T.J. McDonald‘s personal foul on a third-down incompletion. Mixon returned after missing two games following knee surgery and ran for 93 yards in addition to catching three passes.From there, the Dolphins fell apart.“When I got the touchdown, the momentum shifted,” Mixon said. “After that, you started seeing sack after sack, pick after pick, touchdown after touchdown. It was crazy, man.”The Bengals’ young defense sealed wins over Indianapolis and Baltimore with late turnovers. Two freaky bounces changed this one in the fourth quarter.Under pressure, Tannehill decided to throw the ball at the feet of tight end Durham Smythe rather than take a sack. Tannehill was hit as he released the ball, which caromed off Smythe’s helmet and went directly to Johnson, who ran 22 yards untouched for the tying score .After Randy Bullock‘s 20-yard field goal gave the Bengals their first lead at 20-17, Tannehill was hit again by Carlos Dunlap and the ball flew to Hubbard Stephone Anthony Jersey , who ran untouched 19 yards to the end zone with 2:37 left to clinch it.“I didn’t know what happened,” said Tannehill, who was 20 of 35 for 185 yards with three turnovers. “I heard the crowd cheer and everyone run away from me, so I knew something bad happened.”The Dolphins started the season 3-0, but have gotten flattened by New England and shocked by the Bengals in the past two weeks.Miami made the big plays early, but couldn’t close it out with a 17-0 lead. Kiko Alonso picked off Dalton’s tipped pass near the end zone to stop Cincinnati’s opening drive, Vincent Taylor blocked a Bengals field goal attempt, and Jakeem Grant returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown with 23 seconds left in the first half.Tannehill put together a 95-yard drive for the other touchdown, culminating with his 22-yard pass to running back Kenyan Drake. Tannehill was 20 of 35 for 185 yards.AT THE TOPGreen had six catches for 112 yards, moving ahead of Chad Johnson for the club record with his 32nd career 100-yard game.LONG TIMEThe Bengals hadn’t been shut out in an opening half and rallied to win since 2004, when they trailed Miami 3-0 at halftime and pulled it out 16-13. It was only the fourth time in franchise history that they scored 24 points in the fourth quarter and won 鈥?they also did it in 1972, 1978 and 2004.HISTORIC RETURNGrant’s 70-yard punt return made him the first Dolphin to score on a reception, a kickoff return and a punt return in the same season. He had a 102-yard kickoff return against Tennessee in the season opener. Grant joins Dante Hall (2003) as the only NFL players with a 100-yard kickoff return, a 70-yard punt return and a 50-yard TD catch in the same season. The last NFL player with a touchdown of all three varieties was the Chiefs‘ Tyreek Hill in 2016.STREAK ENDSDalton’s pass for Green was tipped and intercepted by linebacker Kiko Alonso, ending the Bengals’ opening drive and their streak of scoring on their past 34 trips inside the 20-yard line. It was the longest active streak in the NFL.BURFICT BACKBengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict returned from his latest NFL suspension and had seven tackles, second on the team.INJURIESDolphins: LT Laremy Tunsil left with a concussion during the Bengals’ fourth-quarter comeback, further depleting the Dolphins’ offensive line.Bengals: LB Preston Brown walked off the field in the second quarter after getting his right ankle checked but returned.UP NEXTDolphins host the Bears next Sunday.Bengals host the Steelers next Sunday.

      rounds during Super Bowl week Long Sleeve Cameron Smith Jersey , and Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Kirk Cousins is no exception. On Friday, Cousins sat down with Dan Patrick for the appropriately named Dan Patrick Show.We’ve got several clips below for your viewing pleasure, starting with the full interview. This one checks in at about 14 minutes or so.If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, we’ve got several other clips as well. In this clip, Patrick and Cousins read his negative draft profile from the lead-up to the 2012 NFL Draft.There’s also a bit where Patrick and Cousins talk about the pressure that Cousins faced this year after receiving what was (for about ten minutes) the biggest contract in NFL history.Last, but not least, things ended on a humorous note with Cousins throwing passes to. . .at least in theory. . .Patrick’s assistant, “McLovin.”As someone that’s been a Dan Patrick fan for a long time, it was kind of cool to see him sit down with Cousins and talk about a few things. If you’d like to tune into The Dan Patrick Show, you can catch it five days a week on the Audience Channel Stefon Diggs Jersey , which is Channel 239 on your DirecTV dial. Tashaun Gipson says the thought of facing rookie quarterback Sam Darnold has Jacksonville defenders "licking our chops."The Jaguars (2-1) host Darnold and the New York Jets (1-2) on Sunday, and Jacksonville's brash defenders expect the matchup to be a mismatch."It's a fun time," said Gipson, a safety who made the Pro Bowl in 2015. "The scary part about it is he's going against a very experienced secondary, the best in the league. The greatest part about it is if we don't get to him, the D-line will get to him. We're all licking our chops."The Jaguars have one of the best defenses in the NFL, a star-studded group that finished second in points, yards, interceptions and sacks in 2017. The unit currently leads the AFC in scoring, giving up three touchdowns and allowing 14.6 points a game.Darnold Harrison Smith Jersey , the youngest quarterback to start a season opener in the league's modern era, has thrown five interceptions and been sacked seven times in three games. He also has three touchdown passes."I'm pretty sure fantasy (owners) are going to be drafting our defense this week," defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. "It's up to us to go out there and do what we need to do."Gipson and Jackson also praised Darnold for his poise, especially in the season opener against Detroit. Darnold's first NFL throw was intercepted and returned for a touchdown . He bounced back with two touchdowns in a 48-17 victory."He looked like an eight-year vet in that game," Gipson said. "Cleveland and Miami, they were able to get after him a little bit, get him rattled a little bit. At the end of the day, he's a young guy. It's growing pains. It's part of the game. I feel like if we can get him off his mark, kind of get him rattled, whether it's on pressure or tight coverage Adam Thielen Jersey , I think we'll have a good day."Added Jackson: "You can sit here and say, 'On paper, we look good.' But we all saw last week when the (Minnesota) Vikings went out there and played (Buffalo). It doesn't matter."Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen accounted for three scores in a 27-6 win at the Vikings.The Jags faced just two rookie quarterbacks during coach Doug Marrone's first season, winning both.Cleveland's DeShone Kizer completed 16 of 32 passes for 179 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions in a 19-7 loss. He also was sacked five times and lost two of three fumbles.Houston's Deshaun Watson came off the bench in the 2017 opener and completed 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards and a score in a 29-7 loss."Rookies throw interceptions. They hold the ball a little longer. They just do things that a savvy quarterback that's been in the league three, four years doesn't do," Jackson said. "They just do things that they don't know any better of doing."Jacksonville's defense has done plenty of talking all season , but also has been a little slow to pile up numbers.The D returned an interception for a touchdown in the season opener at the New York Giants, but has been relatively quiet since. Pro Bowl defensive end Yannick Ngakoue is still looking for his first sack, and the highly touted secondary — A.J. Bouye Kirk Cousins Jersey , Jalen Ramsey, Barry Church and Gipson — has yet to notch an interception."Any secondary that's been catching picks this year, I just got to tell them, 'Calm down,'" Gipson said. "Their ceiling can only be the second-best secondary in the National Football League no matter what. ... "It's time for us to get our hands on the rock. We're all itching for that opportunity. Once that first one comes, they're just going to continue to come and they come in bunches, man, as we seen last year."We're not pressing about it. We know our opportunity is going to come."Maybe it happens against Darnold."If you go in looking at he's young, he's this, he's that Marcus Sherels Jersey , the guy will come out and blast you," Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith said. "You've got to understand that we don't have much tape on him. You've got college tape and stuff like that. Again, respect any man that lines on the other side of that ball. But at the same time, there better be respect on that side of the ball."

      TEMPE Haason Reddick Jersey 2019 , Ariz. (AP) — Robert Nkemdiche on injured reserve with a knee injury.Nkemdiche, the Cardinals' first-round draft pick (29th overall) in 2016, was injured in Arizona's 17-3 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday.Coach Steve Wilks said Monday that the knee would require surgery but wouldn't give any other details. Nkemdiche is the 15th Cardinals player to go on injured reserve this season.After struggling with injuries and spotty performances in his first two seasons Black D.J. Humphries Jersey , Nkemdiche had some of his best games in recent weeks. His was the Cardinals' only significant injury in the Lions loss, Wilks said. Everything is going according to plan.

The Arizona Cardinals are controlling the draft and making sure they control the narrative of how this all plays out.They have continued to show serious interest in Kyler Murray as the number one pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and in doing so have made it abundantly clear that they have a price.Whatever that price is, and what it is for D.J. Humphries Jersey 2019 , we don't know, but the Cardinals have taken their flirtation with Murray to the final point.Today, while Alabama has their Pro Day youth Chandler Jones Jersey , they instead went to Oklahoma and had a private meeting with the Heisman winning quarterback of the Oklahoma Sooners, Kyler Murray.The Cardinals know Murray, Kingsbury recruited him to Texas Tech out of high school and when he transferred from Texas A&M.He and wide receiver coach David Raih are both incredibly well versed in Murray the man and the player.That leaves these meetings about two things:1. Convincing Steve Keim that Murray is the man for the job.2. Convincing another team that the only way to insure they get Murray is to trade with the Cardinals.It is really the final part of the "Game of Throws" for the Arizona Cardinals.They've played the game Stitched Chandler Jones Jersey , we'll now see how it ends.

      evonta Freeman return for Sunday's game at the Pittsburgh Steelers after missing three games with a sore right knee.Coach Dan Quinn said Freeman Stitched Kemal Ishmael Jersey , the team's leading rusher each of the last three years, would have full clearance "without any setbacks."There was no report of a setback, but Freeman was listed as limited on the team's practice report, just as he was late last week.Freeman was upbeat before the practice."I feel really good," Freeman said. "Coming back and doing something I really love to do is always a good time. I'm just excited to be back."Freeman said he's confident he is "comfortable enough to be back out there.""I feel explosive and ready to run," he said.Atlanta's defense, meanwhile, has lost a fourth starter for at least one week. Quinn confirmed defensive tackle Grady Jarrett will be held out with an ankle sprain and knee injury he suffered late in last week's 37-36 loss to Cincinnati .Quinn said Jack Crawford will start for Jarrett. Terrell McClain and rookie Deadrin Senat will have bigger roles.Defensive tackle Michael Bennett, who was signed on Tuesday after being cut by Jacksonville on Sept. 11, said he is "studying like crazy" to be ready for a backup role."I plan to play, and they plan to play me," Bennett said.The Falcons' defense already has lost starting safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen to season-ending injuries and linebacker Deion Jones for at least eight weeks. Offensive guard Andy Levitre also is on IR.The Falcons (1-3) have lost two straight games, so the return of Freeman was embraced as rare positive news."Free is chomping at the bit to get back and get going," Quinn said, adding he hopes a full week of practice will enable Freeman to "feel like he can explode and do the things that he does in both the run game and pass game."Man, we're pumped to have him back out there."This is the second straight season Freeman has missed time with injuries. He missed two games in 2017 with a concussion, his second of the year Youth Kemal Ishmael Jersey , and was slowed by a right knee injury late in the season.After running for more than 1,000 yards in 2015 and 2016, Freeman finished with 865 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, along with 36 receptions, last season.Tevin Coleman and rookie Ito Smith combined to run for 86 yards against the Bengals. Quinn was not satisfied with the production of the ground game."We definitely left some things out there in the run game, we felt, this past week," Quinn said. "We challenged the offense. We think there's a spot we can go to and we can be significantly better and the run game is one of those spots."Atlanta running game also sputtered in a 43-37 overtime loss to New Orleans on Sept. 23. Coleman averaged only 2.2 yards per carry while being held to 33 yards.Freeman wouldn't say he alone could jumpstart the running game."I'm just coming in to do my part," he said. "I just think we need to win. It's not about individual stats or any of that."NOTES: WR Julio Jones (hand, ankle), CB Justin Bethal (knee) and Jarrett were held out. Other players listed as limited: DE Vic Beasley Jr. (ankle), Coleman (shin), WR Mohamed Sanu (hip), DE Derrick Shelby (groin) and LB Foye Oluokun (ankle). Jones has missed practices each of the last two weeks before being removed from the injury report before games. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons were looking to bulk up in the trenches after a disappointing season.They stuck to that plan, even when one potential target after another was snatched up ahead of the 14th pick in the NFL draft.In a bit of a surprise, the Falcons selected offensive guard Chris Lindstrom from Boston College with their first-round choice Thursday night Stitched Justin Hardy Jersey , adding another piece to a line that needed a big upgrade after star quarterback Matt Ryan took a pounding in 2019.As it turned out, Atlanta wasn’t done. Just before midnight, the Falcons dealt their second- and third-round picks to Los Angeles for the next-to-last selection of the first round, which they used to grab Washington offensive tackle Kaleb McGary at No. 31. Atlanta also got a sixth-round pick in the deal.The Falcons were thought to covet a wealth of stellar defensive linemen, but six of those players were gobbled up in the first 13 picks. Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams went to Cincinnati at No. 11, depriving Atlanta of another possible selection. When Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins was grabbed by Miami just ahead of the Falcons’ pick, the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Lindstrom became the choice.He’ll now be charged with protecting fellow Boston College alum Ryan, who was the Falcons’ top pick in 2008.“He’s come up to speak with the team a few times,” Lindstrom said. “He’s a great ambassador for what it means to be a BC man. I’m thankful to be able to play with him.”Ryan will be looking for a lot better protection from the guys up front. He was sacked 42 times and took 108 hits, a career high.“We were focused on offensive line,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “We need to protect Matt.”Atlanta hasn’t used a first-round pick on an offensive guard since Bill Fralic was chosen at No. 2 overall in 1985. Lindstrom joins a revamped offensive line that includes two other new guards, free agent signees James Carpenter and Jamon Brown.“I’m just trying to help the team,” Lindstrom said. When asked pointedly if he was capable of starting right away, he deferred. “I’m just trying to come in and work right now and try to be a great player.”The pick was not well received by Falcons fans watching the draft at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Many appeared baffled by the choice, perhaps because many draft analysts projected Lindstrom as possibly slipping into Friday’s second round.At least he comes from good bloodlines. His father, also named Chris Youth Justin Hardy Jersey , was a lineman at Boston University who went on to play three seasons in the NFL. Younger brother Alec just completed his freshman year on Boston College’s offensive line.McGary is a 6-foot-7, 324-pounder who will get a chance to compete for the starting job at right tackle.While the Falcons received offers to move up from the 14th pick and were interested in players such as Wilkins, Dimitroff insisted that offensive line was the top priority.Lindstrom, he added, was the guy the Falcons wanted all along.“We knew we would have to be aggressive,” Dimitroff said. “We’re not looking back. We made the choice of Lindstrom. We’re not concerned about anyone thinking he’s a reach.”Set at quarterback with former MVP Ryan and veteran backup Matt Schaub, the Falcons were hoping several teams ahead of them would go in that direction. The Arizona Cardinals selected Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray with the top overall pick, and Daniel Jones of Duke went to the New York Giants at No. 6.That was it.After the Falcons selected Lindstrom, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins was scooped up by Washington at No. 15.Atlanta had its highest spot in the draft since 2015, when the team was heading into its first season under coach Dan Quinn. On the heels of two straight playoff appearances, including a run to the Super Bowl during the 2016 season, the Falcons were ravaged by injuries and slipped to 7-9 a year ago.Quinn fired all three coordinators in a shake-up that led to the head coach taking over the defensive play-calling duties.Lindstrom watched the draft from his family’s home in Massachusetts.“It was just my immediate family until I got drafted,” he said during a teleconference with Atlanta media. “It sounds like a lot of people just showed up.”
