Ravens lash out at shifted Sunday NFL schedule

Playing their best football at just the right time, the Baltimore Ravens need only to beat Cincinnati at home on Sunday to reach the playoffs for the first time in three years.
Women's Majestic Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim #5 Albert Pujols Replica White/Pink Splash Fashion MLB Jersey
Baltimore will be without special teams standout and backup cornerback Jaylen Hill, who tore his ACL and MCL against the Colts.

A non-contact injury, and just unfortunate for him, Harbaugh said. He’s a tough young man and was really working hard on special teams, developing as a defensive back.

Harbaugh said it’s possible that cornerback Robertson Daniel will be activated from the practice squad.

Also, the Ravens hope to have back receiver Jeremy Maclin, who missed Saturday’s game with a knee injury.

The tax break has supercharged the increase in values of all professional sports teams, experts said.

For NFL team owners, the tax break has added roughly 5 percent to team values 鈥?or about $122 million, based on an average franchise value of $2.44 billion, according to Forbes.
Authentic Youth Chuck Bednarik Jersey
The tax break, and others, and how each NFL owner has benefited from them came into focus this week after President Trump 鈥?as part of a long-running battle with the league and its players over kneeling during the national anthem 鈥?tweeted a threat about the league’s massive tax breaks.
Game Womens Ryan Suter Jersey
Change Authentic Thon Maker Jersey the tax law! Trump tweeted.

When the tax break was first introduced in 1946, it was aimed at players’ contracts, which, it was argued, were of diminishing value.

The IRS agreed, and courts have supported the position.

Cantor alleges that Faulk asked her deeply personal and invasive questions regarding her sex life, fondled her breasts, and groped her butt.

Also named is another analyst, Ike Taylor, who the filing indicates sent Cantor sexually inappropriate pictures of himself and a video of him masturbating in the shower. Donovan McNabb, a former analyst, has also been included in the filing.

The move was an attempt to make replay rulings more consistent and more accurate.

When the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018 is announced, Ray Lewis and Randy Moss have a chance to join a relatively exclusive club: first-ballot inductees. Over the past 10 classes, there have been 16 first-ballot modern-era inductees, or less than two per year. And that’s fitting, because to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer — to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame without waiting more than the minimum five years after retirement — means, to me, having a seminal impact on the game.

But then Blandino abruptly left the NFL to become a rules analyst for Fox, and the league promoted Al Riveron to replace him. The hope was that the transition would be seamless, given that Riveron had been by Blandino’s side assisting him on replay rulings and other key tasks.

The transition has not been seamless. A number of replay rulings this season have raised eyebrows in and around the league, most recently the decision to overturn a touchdown catch last weekend by the Buffalo Bills’ Kelvin Benjamin. Bills owner Terry Pegula went public this week with his dissatisfaction, saying that the NFL must fix its replay system.

Ben Roethlisberger had the benefit of better wideouts overall — plus running back Le’Veon Bell — to make spectacular catches in tough coverage and traffic. The Jaguars still won with Brown and Bell going off, and they’ll expect to be fine in the bigger picture even if Lewis and Gronk do some damage.

TE Dwayne Allen: He has not been a big part of the Patriots’ passing game, but he has been a great fit for their blocking, delivering on the level of Gronk in that capacity. It won’t take more than, say, three catches for 30 yards for Allen to have considerable contributions to a few scoring drives.

You talk about a guy who has overcome adversity — Watt turned himself from a walk-on at Wisconsin into the premier defensive player of his time. To see his true impact, look beyond sacks: Opponents try to double- and triple-team him, but Watt is a disruptive force who turns the ball over and is the most dominant player in the league when healthy.

Hey, even defensive whiz Schaefer himself probably wouldn’t enjoy trying to scheme against a team like his Bulldogs.

He has William, the hero of last season’s NCAA tournament run, steadily guiding the team at point guard. She had five assists Sunday and has 91 on the season; her assist-to-turnover ratio (4.1) leads the SEC.
Limited Rasul Douglas Youth Olive Nike Jersey - #32 NFL Philadelphia Eagles 2017 Salute to Service
There’s Schaefer’s daughter, Blair, known for her 3-point shooting. She has a team-high 50 treys, with four coming Sunday. There’s Johnson, the fifth-year senior in her second season playing for Mississippi State after spending two years at Oklahoma State. She had 16 points against Tennessee and is averaging 11.9 this season, up from 6.3 last season when she mostly came off the bench.

Limited Kids Tyrann Mathieu Jersey Buccaneers: Are there any more Redskins castoffs on their way to Tampa? Maybe not. But getting wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive lineman Chris Baker, both of them exiting Washington, helps plenty. Jackson’s big-play capabilities should aid the ongoing progression of quarterback Jameis Winston, and Baker is a very effective player who probably deserves more recognition than he’s received so far.

Mike Glennon: Glennon might succeed in Chicago where Jay Cutler failed as the Bears’ starting quarterback. He might not. Either way, his bank account will be plenty healthy with his approximately $15 million-per-season deal, awarded after spending half of his four years in Tampa doing next to nothing as Winston’s backup.

Falcons (5-4): Not to get too Fancy Stats on you, but here’s something that could portend good news for Atlanta. The Falcons currently lead the league in net yards per play, as their offense is gaining 1.1 yards per play more than their defense is allowing. The last team to lead the NFL in net yards per play and not make the playoffs was the 2010 Chargers. But man, that remaining schedule: at Seattle on Monday night, home against Minnesota on Dec. 3, two games against New Orleans, season finale against the Panthers.

Limited Kids Luc Robitaille Jersey There are excuses abound for Gurley’s all-time bad 2016 season. A poorly schemed offense, terrible offensive line, and loaded boxes all played a part. Gurley’s vision was also disastrous, so he shares a good deal of the blame. The worrisome thing about his breakout is that those vision concerns still persist, but he’s simply Dave Robinson Authentic Jersey being put in more situations where it doesn’t matter.

If defense does win championships, the Jaguars are in for a successful season.

Jacksonville is allowing a league-low 1.0 points per drive in 2017, the third fewest points allowed per drive since 2002. One of the teams ahead of them, the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0.89), ended the year as Super Bowl champs. The other, the 2005 Chicago Bears, made the playoffs but lost in the divisional round to the Carolina Panthers.
Youth Rees Odhiambo Limited Olive/Gold Nike Jersey: NFL Seattle Seahawks #70 2017 Salute to Service
The Jaguars boast a fearsome defensive line that is the league’s third-best pass-rushing unit per Pro Football Focus, with defensive end Calais Campbell credited with 11.5 sacks on the season, tying him for the league lead with Dallas’s Demarcus Lawrence. They also have the NFL’s best secondary, a ball-hawking crew that is limiting opposing quarterbacks to a league low 64.5 passer rating against.

And unfortunately I have to mention the 1975 NFC divisional playoff win for Dallas over Minnesota Joseph Young Jersey on Roger Staubach’s last-minute Hail Mary to Drew Pearson (with an assist from Pearson’s uncalled offensive pass interference on the play).

The Patriots are all over the list of late-game postseason heroics, including their first Super Bowl win, after the 2001 season, when a Tom Brady-led drive resulted in the game-winning, 48-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri on the final play to upset the Rams. There was Malcolm Butler’s Super Bowl-saving interception in the final seconds three years ago to beat the Seahawks. Then last year’s Super Bowl record-setting 25-point comeback to stun the Falcons in overtime on James White’s TD run.

In addition, a huge emphasis from Coughlin was to not beat ourselves — to not allow a bad play to take us out of the game. So many of New England’s victories have come from opponents blowing it, making game-changing mistakes. In Super Bowl XLII, Manning largely just stayed away from the Patriots’ dominant cornerback, Asante Samuel. It was a mindset of, We’re not going to throw in his direction, so don’t even look over there.

The NFL, according to The Washington Post’s Mark Maske, seems to believe that the last-minute intentional-grounding call that pushed the Redskins out of field goal range and led to overtime during Sunday’s loss in New Orleans was erroneously called. Quarterback Kirk Cousins wasn’t under pressure as he threw the ball to the sidelines, with the implication that he thus should not have been whistled for the crucial call.

Game Youth Tyrunn Walker Jersey Presented with that information Monday morning, Cousins didn’t feel much better.

‘We can’t have the inmates running the prison’: Anti-protest NFL owners are fighting a losing battle

The NFL’s owners met earlier this month to discuss how they should handle the continuing protests of the league’s players during the playing of the national anthem. The two-day meetings, which included a session attended by owners and a group of players, ended without the league enacting a mandate that players stand for the anthem.
Nike NaVorro Bowman Men's Black Elite Jersey: #53 NFL San Francisco 49ers Rush Vapor Untouchable
The decision not to enact an anthem mandate was hashed out during the second day of the meetings at a New York hotel, one day after the owners and players sat down to talk with one another. Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder was the first to speak out in favor of making the players stand, alleging the protests were hurting his team’s bottom line.

Then it was McNair’s turn to support Jones, who had promised to bench any of his players if they protested during the anthem. The Texans owner, who donated millions to the presidential campaign of NFL antagonist Donald Trump, echoed many of the same points about how the player protests were having a negative impact on the league’s bottom line.

We can’t have the inmates running the prison, McNair said, a comment that stunned some in the room, according to ESPN’s reporters.

A: James had the most votes among fans, so he will get the first pick. He must choose among the eight other starters who were voted into the game. Other than James and Curry, the starters are: Kyrie Irving, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, James Harden, Kevin Durant, Jacoby Ellsbury Youth jersey Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. All the starters must be taken before the reserves are picked. So these eight guys will be the first picks.

Elite Womens Cornellius Carradine Jersey Q: What about the reserves?
Limited Kids Marquette King Jersey
A: Curry gets to pick first among them, and James follows until each has picked seven. In other words, Curry will get pick No. 8 for the last starter and No. 9 for the first reserve, while James will get picks No. 7 and No. 10. The rule that each team must have three guards has been dropped.

A: Technically, James gets the final pick in the All-Star draft, but effectively, Curry will decide who James gets at No. 22 because he will take pick No. 21, leaving James with the final player.

Texans players upset at the comment reportedly considered walking out of the team’s practice facility Friday.

Can Blake Bortles play with consistency? When the Jaguars went 3-1 in December with wins over the Colts, Seahawks and Texans, Bortles completed nearly 69 percent of his passes. But then he was 15 of 34 with two interceptions in a regular-season-ending loss to the Titans.

While the Jaguars have beaten the Bills and Steelers so far in the playoffs, Bortles has made more plays with his legs than his arm. He is just 26 of 49 (53 percent) for 301 yards and two touchdowns, but most important has not turned the ball over. He will need to continue to take care of the ball against the Patriots but must also find more consistency as a thrower.

After the comment was reported by ESPN, McNair apologized for it. Some players, including wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, did leave. McNair met with Texans players Saturday and expressed regret about his remark. He said in another written statement that he his remark was meant to refer to the owners’ relationship with the league office.

Malcolm Jenkins against Rob Gronkowski — Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz will have more to worry about than Gronkowski with Brady running the offense. The Eagles will certainly try to pressure Brady with Fletcher Cox, Chris Long and Derek Barnett up front, but Brady has a quick release and will push the ball downfield.

While Danny Amendola made several clutch catches in the 24-20 win over the Jaguars and Dion Lewis has been dangerous all season, the key to stopping the Patriots will be containing Gronkowski.

The big Patriots tight end missed the second half of the AFC championship game and the Patriots won the Super Bowl last year with an injured Gronkowski shelved. Assuming he’s cleared from Sunday’s concussion over the next two weeks, Gronkowski figures to be a big factor in New England’s game plan. Stopping Brady won’t be easy, but Gronkowski was New England’s leading receiver all season and has to be priority No. 1 for the Eagles.

Q: Will James snub Irving?

For the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, which features the Minnesota Vikings traveling to take on the Philadelphia Eagles

For this tournament, you select four offensive and two defensive players from Vikings-Eagles only and try to rack up as many points as possible.

Before you enter a daily fantasy lineup for this tournament, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and rolled through this season, entering multiple lineups that have cashed big.

Elite Mens Kavon Frazier Jersey For DFS tournaments during the divisional round last week, he jumped all over Titans receiver Corey Davis as a strong value play at $3,400 on DraftKings. The result: Davis caught two touchdown passes and easily returned his best DFS performance of the season with 23.3 points on DraftKings. Anyone who followed his advice was well on their way to a huge DFS payout.

Romo, being the class act and consummate leader he is, conceded the starting role officially in November and went out with a bang against the Philadelphia Eagles — effortlessly marching the Cowboys down the field on a six-play, 81-yard drive punctuated by a touchdown dime to wide receiver Terrance Williams. He’d then leave the field, and his playing days in the NFL, for good.

The penalty discrepancy marked the first time since 2011 that a team was called for only one penalty in a playoff game, and coincidentally — or not, depending on your point of view — the Patriots were the last team to only get hit with one penalty in a postseason game.

After the game, several players were asked about the penalty discrepancy, and although most of them Fred Jackson Womens Jersey kept their answers short and sweet, they didn’t try to hide their feelings.

The stats speak for themselves, defensive tackle Malik Jackson said, via ESPN.com.

Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack, who was involved in one of the wildest plays of the game, echoed Jackson’s sentiment when asked about the penalty discrepancy.

Just making sure everybody was all right and everybody was in great health.

It didn’t cost Saban Derick Brassard Youth jersey this time. His freshman backup QB threw the pass of a lifetime and bailed him out. But the lack of coaching could have decided the game. Maybe it’s time to bring in someone to make sure the kickers are getting the instruction they need.

Saints kicker Wil Lutz had another strong outing in the Wild Card Game this weekend, as he converted his lone attempt from 57 yards to help lift New Orleans over Carolina, 31-26. That’s the fifth consecutive week Lutz has been perfect on field goals, his last miss coming on Dec. 3. The 23-year-old Georgia State product has been fantastic after a slightly shaky start, overcoming field-goal misses in three of the first four weeks to put together a very impressive season.

I’d say more about Lutz, but let’s be real: This entire section was written because the guy’s name is Lutz and I wanted to link to the 30 Rock bit where everyone tells Lutz to shut up even when he isn’t speaking. What a doof that guy was, Lutz. Ha.

John Jaso Limited Jersey Jacksonville’s Brad Nortman and Buffalo’s Colton Schmidt traded off 23 (!) of them in the game, a veritable smorgasbord of punts. We had all different kinds of punts: high ones and low ones, end-over-enders and spirals. For us investigators in the Mindpunters division, it was frankly overwhelming.
Aldrick Rosas Limited Jersey
The performance led Slate to run an article headlined The 10 best punts of the Bills-Jaguars game. The article was nicely written, with a good index of the punts from the game, and if I find out the writer was actually making fun of the punt posse (aka the Uncle Tupa-bros), I am going to lose my god damn mind.

Actually they had pictures from the game, Fournette said. I think her in-laws didn’t know who I was until everybody started taking pictures with me and then they were like, ‘We were at the game going against y’all. It was cold.’ Things like that.

Fournette said the woman apologized after the accident, which happened on Interstate 295. There were no injuries.

I was good, Fournette said. I had my seatbelt on so I wasn’t really worried.

The thing that surprised Fournette was the fact that one of the first responders asked him whether he could keep the rear bumper from his car, which had been knocked off during the accident and then asked if he would sign it.

The Buccaneers went 9-7 in Koetter’s first season, so the 5-11 drop-off was disappointing.

Ron Parker Game Jersey
Among the Black Monday firings that will be taking place on New Year’s Day, Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter won’t be one of them. Despite a 5-11 season, the Glazer family decided to retain Koetter.

It took a lot of courage for the Glazer family to bring me back [and] bring the staff back with the record what it is, but I really appreciate that, Koetter told ESPN’s Jenna Laine. We will start the evaluation process tomorrow. We will send these guys off on their vacation, and we will start working on 2018.

However, a lot of players were voicing their support Sunday night for keeping Koetter, according to Laine. It makes me feel pretty good, Koetter said.

Obviously, there has to be a reason behind it.The bottom line was just that, the bottom line.The most astonishing thing about Dubnyk is that just three years ago, he was afterthought, gifted from one team to the next like a surplus toaster.Scouts are also concerned with his short stature and his high-effort delivery.We think they’re both really good players, and I think they’re looking at it as a chance to play.

I think Fisher would be a pretty good.Two other such players were Willard Ese Hombre Brown and, who were top hitters the Negro Leagues.I bet the Canucks are not the only team sports that’s looking to draw inspiration from the New England Patriots’stunning comeback win ‘s Super Bowl.But 2015 was a tale of two halves for Pineda: A phenomenal first half and a much worse second.Some mishaps here and there, but we’re the right direction.

From there, the Panthers kicked a pair of field goals on their next two possessions, but the Saints scored touchdowns on their next two. Carolina closed Jose Iglesias Authentic Jersey the half with a field goal. In the second half, Carolina kicked a field goal, as did the Saints, and the teams then exchanged punts.

Carolina finally found the end zone in the fourth quarter, when Newton hit Greg Olsen for a 14-yard touchdown reception. New Orleans took back over, but they punted, as did the Panthers on their next possession. But Brees orchestrated yet another touchdown drive, and the Panthers were down multiple scores with five minutes to go.

People are stuck on the old Blake Bortles, the one that lost a lot with a franchise that struggled a lot.

He was the No. 3 pick in the 2014 draft and his development has been typical of several young quarterbacks, especially those from smaller colleges (Central Florida). He is 25. In his fourth season he has helped lead the Jaguars to a 10-6 record and to the AFC South crown. He’s in the playoffs, at home against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The second and third floors have been converted into meeting rooms, training rooms and coaches’ offices. While the players and coaches head to their rooms, the equipment staff has gone straight to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, where the team will practice all week, to begin their load-in. The Angels crew is amused to see the heavy parkas the Philly staffers had brought down from Seattle—there would be no use for those in the 70-degree Southern California weather.

Pederson stands bleary-eyed behind a hotel podium adorned with a makeshift Eagles sign printed on computer paper. As is typical for coaches in the NFL, he clearly hasn’t gotten much sleep since the game. A Sunday night game, a body clock still set to East Coast time and a loss make for a tough combination.

Pederson answers seven straight questions about the non-challenge of Wilson’s lateral; slightly miffed, he defends his decision. With the same resolve, he declares this will be a “normal” week—as normal as possible some 2,700 miles from the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. He does, however, say he’ll change his messaging to the team in light of the self-inflicted mistakes he believes began in practice and lurked under the surface during the win streak.

Since scorching through a good chunk of their schedule with an 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS run, the Saints have gone 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS over their last six games. All three of those losses came on the road however as New Orleans has won each of its last seven games at home.

New Orleans is 5-0-1 ATS in its last six games against the Panthers per the OddsShark NFL Database. That includes two wins and covers as 5.5-point favorites over Carolina in 2017.

Tom Verducci: He’ll have to wait until Ohtani signs, because his best landing spots are all on Ohtani’s final list: Mariners, Angels, Cubs and Rangers. Don’t rule out a return the Rangers, but the Angels, with the clock ticking before Mike Trout’s free agency, are the surprise winner.

With such a young core—five players making at least $8 million next year and two of them, Joe Mauer and Brian Dozier, come off the books after 2018—the team has significant financial flexibility. nationals_008
