How Cam Newton Jersey can again dominate the NFL, and fantasy football

The Panthers need a refresh. It’s not just about whether Newton runs a ton of the zone-read keepers that have historically given defenses fits and opened up everything else. It’s also the downfield bombing attack, which requires Newton to stand in the pocket for eons. He’s perennially top-10 in time-per-play spent in the pocket, and last year he tied Jameis Winston for the league’s highest air-yards-per-attempt. Carolina’s pass game has been extraordinarily vertical, which in today’s NFL is actually the current fashion.

The Lakers were a hideous 2 of 14 from the line in their 99-86 win over the Indiana Pacers. That 14.3 percentage was the lowest by any team in NBA history (minimum 10 attempts), according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Man, that free throw line, it’s like a virus or something, said guard Jordan Clarkson, the only Laker to make free throws Friday.

The Lakers are by far the worst team in the NBA in free throw shooting, with their 68.8 percent clip below the Oklahoma City Thunder (70.6) entering Saturday. No current Lakers player is shooting better Arron Afflalo Jersey than 76 percent from the line.

With three injured starters on the bench, the Lakers shot an abysmal 2-for-14 from the foul line — the worst percentage in a game in NBA history — but still managed to beat the Pacers on Friday.

Limited Max Scherzer Jersey Yet, it was Ross who set the standard with that 4.22 40-yard dash. The difference in Ross and others that flirted with Johnson’s record in prior years is that Ross is a true receiver. He can win from the inside as well as he can down the field on the outside. His injury history is a concern and at the end of his run, he did have an issue with his calf that shut down his workout. It’s hard to find a true comparison but if you mashed up Redskins star DeSean Jackson and former Steelers dynamo Santonio Holmes, you’d get Ross.

And, to think, he was that close to hearing his name called at the 2017 NFL draft from his private island.

Authentic Kids Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey Rather than dwell on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ historically poor defensive performance Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue decided against showing his team the game tape from the blowout loss and simply went back to work on the court Sunday.

Just move on, Lue said.

Josh McDaniels Jersey will be in demand again. But does he want to leave the Patriots?

The NFL, once again, seems ready to give Jah Reid Jersey Josh McDaniels his next chance to be a head coach.
Youth Nike Los Angeles Chargers #56 Korey Toomer Limited Olive 2017 Salute to Service NFL Jersey
And McDaniels, in what has become an annual ritual, must decide whether he’s ready to move on from his successful second go-round as offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots.

Time is on McDaniels’s side, at age 41. He could remain with the Patriots and be an in-house candidate to succeed Bill Belichick whenever Belichick decides that he’s had enough. Or he could leave for a head coaching job elsewhere. But it would have to be the right head coaching job.

Nikola Jokic had 16 points and 12 rebounds, and Will Barton hit four free throws in the final 10 seconds to secure the win and spoil Jusuf Nurkic’s return to Denver.

The Nuggets had lost six of eight.

Three years later, Tampa Bay is considered a team that’s ready for playoff contention, thanks in no small part to Winston.

Game Youth Daryl Worley Jersey The Cleveland Browns aren’t quite there yet 鈥?will they ever be? 鈥?but they didn’t wait until Week 17 last season to apparently lay down. In September, the team’s front office replaced injured place kicker Patrick Murray with Cody Parkey instead of the more experienced (and expensive) Robbie Gould, who was available and desired by special teams coach Chris Tabor.

But McDaniels’s coaching reputation has long since been restored in his second collaboration with Belichick in New England. The Patriots secured another Super Bowl triumph last season, and they’re back in position to perhaps win another this season. McDaniels has a strong bond with quarterback Tom Brady, notwithstanding their sideline confrontation last Sunday in which Brady screamed at McDaniels during the Patriots’ victory at Buffalo.

Kyle Rudolph’s view of Vikings’ success runs deeper than ‘Minneapolis Miracle’

Kyle Rudolph saw the “Minneapolis Miracle” from the best view possible.

The Vikings tight end was about 30 yards behind Stefon Diggs, whose 61-yard touchdown catch gave Minnesota a 29-24 victory against New Orleans and put the franchise in position to reach Super Bowl LII. Minnesota meets Philadelphia on Sunday in the NFC championship game as a result of that walk-off touchdown.

And if he hadn’t made a power grab in Philadelphia and made himself his own GM, there’s a chance he could have had some lasting NFL success.

Kelly arrived in the NFL in 2013 amid great curiosity and fanfare after his run of on-field prosperity at Oregon. His jump to the NFL seemed, like Spurrier’s, in part a lab experiment to see if his ideas about how to run an offense would work at the next level. Kelly’s teams at Oregon played fast and played well. But would it translate?

Titans: Tennessee will clinch a wild-card berth with a win over the Jaguars, or a tie combined with a Bills loss/tie against the Dolphins and a Chargers loss/tie against the Raiders, or if the Bills and Chargers both lose.

Rams: Los Angeles has clinched the NFC West. The Rams cannot earn a first-round bye and will be either the No. 3 seed or No. 4 seed. They will be the No. 3 seed with a win, or with a tie combined with a Saints loss/tie and Panthers loss/tie, or with losses by the Saints and Panthers.

Saints: New Orleans has clinched a playoff berth. The Saints will clinch the NFC South with a win over the Buccaneers, or a Panthers loss to the Falcons, or a tie combined with a Panthers tie.

The score came on a 5-yard strike to old friend Antonio Gates Jersey on third-and-goal.

This offseason will not feature Jimmy Garoppolo soaking in the confetti after a Patriots Super Bowl win like it did last year. Jimmy G is now with the 49ers, having been dealt midseason by the Pats to San Francisco. But Garoppolo still has reason to celebrate his old teammates making the Super Bowl, because he is going to be upwards of $200,000 richer as a result.
Team Canada Jeff Carter Olympic Hockey Nike Jersey: Premier Women's Red #77 2014 Away Jerseys
There’s no gray area when it comes to the conference championship and Authentic Luke Appling Jersey Super Bowl bonuses however. Garoppolo is due the full amount by virtue of the CBA:
Authentic Kids Stephon Gilmore Jersey
A player who at the time of the game in question is not on the Active List or Inactive List of a Club participating in the game but was on the Active or Inactive List for eight or more games (i.e., regular or postseason) will receive the full amount designated in Section 2 for such game provided he is not under contract to another Club in the same Conference at the time of the game in question.

By virtue of being traded to the NFC, Garoppolo is guaranteed to get playoff checks for the Patriots’ last two games.

A Patriots would win mean Garoppolo gets, at absolute bare minimum, $153,000 in playoff checks. A Patriots loss would mean Garoppolo gets, at absolute bare minimum, $107,000 in playoff checks. Add in another $56,000 if he’s voted to get a playoff share from the Patriots and Jimmy G could be staring at $209,000 for his old team running the table in the postseason.

Not a bad reward for a guy who’s been busy becoming the savior for another franchise and largely being targeted as a reason for tensions existing in the Patriots front office.

All the defending champion Patriots have to do to get there is defeat the Tennessee Titans. They’re 13.5-point favorites at home, playing against a team that had a negative point differential during the regular season. The Titans also went 3-5 on the road this year, and they’ll be without their starting running back for the game. They also don’t have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, and the Patriots do. Some teams would be distracted by the hubbub caused by last week’s ESPN article about supposed infighting between Brady, Belichick, and Robert Kraft, but not the Pats. They should be safe.

the Philadelphia Eagles Jersey are home dogs for the second straight week in the NFC playoffs, this time to the Minnesota Vikings.

No more Thursday Night Football (at least for a few months). No more 12 games crammed into a single time slot on Sunday afternoon. It’s January in the NFL. Games matter now, and we get the pleasure of focusing on one at a time. The playoffs are here.
Women's Nike Los Angeles Chargers #92 Brandon Mebane Electric Blue Alternate Vapor Untouchable Elite Player NFL Jersey
The arrival of the postseason compels us to offer some predictions. Our panelists are picking the games every week, which you can find here. This space is reserved for bolder predictions 锟斤拷 the kind of things that will tell us what to watch for in the weeks ahead.

To get the best predictions possible, we turned to the experts at SB Nation’s team sites. You can find all of those predictions here. These are a few of the big ones I pulled together to spotlight, because these are the kind of prognostications that in one way or another will go a long way toward explaining how the playoffs unfold this year.

We’ve talked about the pressure problems and the run defense problems. We’ve talked about the No. 2 cornerback and what’s been lost with Eric Berry’s injury and Derrick Johnson’s decline.

Here’s the thing though: The Chiefs defense is actually good right now. Here’s how many points they’ve allowed in recent games (not counting the backup-fest in Denver): 13, 13, 15, 38, 16 and 12.
Jakub Zboril Womens Jersey
The New England Patriots’ star quarterback immediately thought the worst.

I thought, ‘Of all the plays, my season can’t end on a handoff in practice. I didn’t come this far to end on a handoff,’ Brady said Sunday night after delivering a vintage comeback to defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-20 in the AFC Championship Game.

Brady rallied from the injury and an 11-point deficit, adding another chapter in his storybook career. He played so well that he felt uncomfortable admitting the injury hindered him during the game.

Brady used a Tiger Woods analogy, saying he didn’t want to overdramatize the impact of the injury because it would’ve been like a young Woods saying he played his C game and still won the tournament.

After practicing Friday with a red glove on his throwing hand, Brady shed the glove for the Womens Ryan Ellis Jersey game and simply protected his right thumb with black tape.

Donald Penn Womens Jersey Facing the league’s top defense, Brady completed 26 of 38 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns — both scoring passes to Danny Amendola in the fourth quarter. It was the 54th comeback win of his career.

Cincinnati Bengals Jersey president Mike Brown made the news official on Tuesday.

When the Falcons play at the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday afternoon, Jones will face the only back to gain 100 rushing yards against his team (Jay Ajayi did it while with Miami before being traded to the Eagles). The Eagles also count on one of the most bruising backs in the league (LeGarrette Blount at 6’0, 250 pounds). This Duane Brown Womens Jersey game requires Jones to be as stout as he is quick. Jones has shown he can do it.

Another Jones 锟斤拷 receiver Julio 锟斤拷 receives far more fanfare on the Falcons. But the fast, mobile, aggressive, and sweeping way that Deion Jones plays middle linebacker will color this matchup. He has a natural knack and nose for the ball. His play is the heart of the Falcons defense.

Jacksonville 锟斤拷 or Sacksonville, as it came to be known after finishing second in the NFL with 55 sacks 锟斤拷 had two sacks and six hits against the Bills. Tyrod Taylor was removed from the game to be evaluated for a head injury late in the fourth quarter. He was replaced by Nathan Peterman, who ended up throwing a pick to Jalen Ramsey to clinch the win for the Jaguars.

This one started slow with the teams trading punts on the first six possessions. The Jaguard picked off Taylor but couldn’t record a first down and had to punt. One more Jags punt later, things really got fun.

The Minnesota Vikings are two wins away from becoming the first team ever to host the Super Bowl.

But first, they have to take care of business in the Divisional Round, and they got a tough opponent in the New Orleans Saints. This game begins at 4:30 p.m. ET on FOX (live streams at Fox Sports Go, Yahoo! Sports, and FuboTV).

The Vikings had one of their best regular seasons of the decade and won the NFC North with ease. They finished 13-3, their highest win total since that infamous 15-1 squad in 1998. Led by a crushing defense and surprisingly good play by Case Keenum, Minnesota steamrolled its competition for most of 2017.

In 2016, Stills worked with the Miami Dolphins and Ross Initiative in Sports for Equality (RISE) to host a town hall meeting that brought influential local leaders together with law enforcement to discuss actionable steps that could be taken to address issues of racial inequality and unite the community.

Items that came from this meeting included a police ride-along program and CommUNITY tailgates, which bring local student-athletes, coaches, parents, community leaders, law enforcement and military personnel together at every Dolphins home game.

Peppers isn’t sure if he’ll be back on the field next season.

“I want to have some time to reflect and think about everything,” he said after the wild card loss. “Spend some time with my kids and see where my heart takes me.”

Carolina grabbed the running back-slash-receiver with the eighth overall pick in 2017. He quietly set a new franchise high for the most receptions ever by a rookie when he finished with 80 for 651 yards and five touchdowns. That’s particularly impressive for a player who’s listed on the roster as a running back.

Face it — not many actual wide receivers can make this one-handed snag look this easy.

His explosiveness made him a big-play threat in the passing game no matter where he lined up.

He wasn’t as effective in the run game. But he did enough to get Panthers fans excited about McCaffrey when he puts it all together.

Knowing Wilson, there’s no way, even for a good left tackle, he’d want Graham out. Graham was in Wilson’s 2016 wedding. Wilson went to the funeral of Graham’s manager and mentor in 2015.

Travis Kelce Jersey wobbly after taking big hit against Titans

The Chiefs played without tight end Travis Kelce in the second half of their playoff game against the Titans.

Dustin Byfuglien Kids Jersey
Mariota did scramble out of trouble and run for crucial first downs. He did throw a more conventional touchdown pass to give the Titans the lead in the fourth quarter, to the same receiver (Eric Decker) whose drop had helped dig such a deep first-half hole. He did lead Henry upfield with a block on linebacker Frank Zombo to spring him for the first down that all but ended the game.

Taylor eventually got up and was helped off the field, but suffered a concussion.

Nathan Peterman came in for the last couple plays for the Bills, but Albert Wilson Jersey their playoff hopes came to an end as they failed to score a touchdown to send the game into overtime.

Taylor was placed in concussion protocol following the game. With their 10-3 victory, the Jaguars move on to the divisional round where they face the Steelers in Pittsburgh next Sunday.

Among the FCS’s best running backs the last two seasons, Edmonds ended his productive college career with another outstanding season. As a quick-twitch, elusive, open-field runner, he has remarkable lateral quickness and footwork in traffic, allowing him to maintain explosive bursts at the second level and regain his top speed as he adjusts upfield.

Trent Dilfer: Josh Rosen Jersey will ‘piss off’ a lot of people

UCLA’s Josh Rosen is a very polarizing NFL prospect. Evaluators question his want-to, they get turned off by his attitude and use those things to knock him down as a quarterback prospect.
Steve McNair Jersey Elite Men's Drew Brees Black/Gold Jersey: NFL Nike New Orleans Saints #9 Fadeaway
However, Trent Dilfer who coached Rosen at the Elite 11 quarterback camp cautioned anyone who is doubting Rosen as an NFL QB.

Rosen threw for 9,301 yards and 59 touchdowns Patrick Roy Authentic Jersey in his UCLA career. He could very well hear his name called when the Browns pick No. 1 overall. If he isn’t picked then he could go No. 2 to the Giants. It all depends on whether teams feel comfortable with his strong personality. If Dilfer were the man making the decisions, he would have no hesitation picking Rosen.

I was really, really impressed, he said. I was with him for four days this summer and I looked him in the eyes, and one, I thanked him for putting his ego and pride aside and coming out and helping out these kids, and two, I affirmed him, I said ‘Dude, I think you have exactly what it takes to be special, don’t let people coach it out of you.’

Limited Richard Sherman Jersey The Steelers have remained optimistic that Brown would return for the playoffs coming off of a partially torn calf muscle sustained against the Patriots in Week 15, and Tomlin said he had seen enough out of Brown’s last two practices to believe he’ll be on the field against the Jaguars.

I think we’ve all seen Antonio play enough that we know what he’s capable of, Tomlin said, per ESPN.com.

So, how will the divisional round games play out this weekend? AccuScore has made its 2017 NFL playoff picks by simulating each divisional-round game 10,000 times to predict the probabilities of reaching the next round on the road to Super Bowl 52. Below are the probabilities to win each game this weekend.

In the first game Saturday, the Atlanta Falcons hope to continue their successful road trip in Philly against the Eagles, who haven’t been the same team since Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending knee injury. Simulations predict Atlanta as a favorite with a 67-percent win probability on the road. This is a rare case against a top-seeded team, but current QB Nick Foles hasn’t provided enough reason for more hope. Straight up, AccuScore predicted 12 out of 16 regular-season games correctly for the Eagles this season.

There have been three head coaches in his tenure. Last year, Khan’s son Tony, a team executive, became embroiled in a Twitter feud with angry Jaguars fans.

But the franchise’s first playoff appearance in a decade puts all those hard times to rest.

It’s unbelievable, Khan said. To win the way we did? Mind-blowing. Really, really grateful and obviously proud of the players and the football leadership and the fans who especially the last two games have given us the energy [and] put [us] over the top. It’s been awesome.
