There hasn’t been a head-coaching change made during this NFL season.

There undoubtedly are firings to come, whether it’s during what remains of the season or immediately after it.

McCaffrey’s detractors fret about a Panthers system that only threw 64 passes to running backs last year, fewest in the NFL. I say: you drafted McCaffrey to change that.

Carolina needs more West Coast concepts to stretch the field horizontally. Chris Conte Authentic Jersey Provided Newton has the timing and accuracy to transition to a somewhat quicker-hitting attack, looking more like the Patriots or Packers will create the same kind of defensive honesty Newton’s running has traditionally done. And even if the Panthers decide to let Newton run less out of the zone-read 锟斤拷 he had 35 keeper zone-read runs in 2015 and only 20 last year, only 10 of which came after a Week 4 concussion 锟斤拷 if the offense gets dangerous again, Newton will rack up goal-line scores. He’s just so big.

Mens Brice McCain Jersey Le’Veon Bell, Steelers RB: Bell’s 5.5 yards per carry in the postseason rank fourth-highest in NFL history. Pittsburgh’s ultra-productive workhorse hasn’t posted fewer than 80 yards from scrimmage since the regular-season opener, but Bell has been held under 100 yards rushing all but once since Week 7. At the same time, he beat out Alvin Kamara (81) and Christian McCaffrey (80) with a league-leading and franchise-record 85 catches this season. Bell is a special talent, but his yards per carry have tumbled from 4.6 over his first six games to 3.2 over his last eight. During that span his total scrimmage yards have fallen from 122.0 over his first six outings to 86.0 ever since. Against a Jaguars team that held Bell to 47 yards rushing in Week 5, it’s time for a dose of revenge.

Blake Bortles, Jaguars QB: This is a predictable entry, as Bortles operates under a burning spotlight weekly for a team often forced to play around their quarterback. It’s not hard to imagine Pittsburgh’s opportunistic defense coaxing Bortles into a handful of mind-numbing errors. To prevent that, Jacksonville must avoid falling into an early hole. When the run game produces, Bortles has been a different player.

Hackenberg entered the game after the Jets’ first series and exited near the end of the third quarter.

A year ago, Hackenberg was an embarrassment in the preseason. On Saturday, he wasn’t great, but he wasn’t an embarrassment. So in that way, Saturday night can be considered an improvement from a year ago. But if the Jets were hoping Hackenberg would look like their next starting quarterback, they were ultimately let down.

He went 18 of 25 for 127 yards (5.1 YPA), zero touchdowns, zero picks, and an 83.2 passer rating. Of his eight drives, six ended in punts. None led to points. Twice, he was forced to burn timeouts with the playclock winding down. He was nearly picked off by a defensive lineman. He fumbled a snap, which was recovered by the Titans.

Vincent Valentine Elite Jersey But things shifted for Atlanta in the third quarter, when they finally got a consistent ground game going. That, coupled with the defense’s success in limiting Jared Goff’s chances to hit Todd Gurley with quick, short passes let the Falcons hold on for a win.

Gurley’s had an MVP-caliber season. So the Falcons’best chance of success against the Rams was to take him out of the game as much as possible and force Jared Goff to make throws to win it.

Walt Tkaczuk Authentic Jersey Afterward, right tackle Lane Johnson and defensive end Chris Long sported dog masks that they bought leading up to the game to fully embrace the underdog role.

Dear Big Ben, the bakery chirped, We wanted to thank you for the amazing season so far. Beating you this year not once but twice in the ‘Burgh … well, that was amazing! We appreciated the turnovers you gave us over our season so, in return, we wanted you to get a taste of seven turnovers. So here are our very best apple, blueberry and cherry turnovers! Sincerely, the amazing city of Jacksonville or, as you know it, Sacksonville.

A handwritten thank-you to Roethlisberger is also pictured in the bakery’s Facebook post, as well as shots of Cinotti’s employees preparing to ship a box of Sam Reinhart Jersey the turnovers to Heinz Field.

No word on whether Cinotti’s will sponsor any of Ben’s untimely picks or fumbles beyond 2017, but one thing’s for sure: One Jaguars alumnus may not be on board with the playful bakery trolling.

Jaguars’ Marcedes Lewis: ‘We know we can beat anybody’

The Jaguars went from being a bottom dweller in the AFC to one of four teams left vying for a Super Bowl title this season. That fact is not lost on Marcedes Lewis.

That rubbed off in Week 1 of the season, when the Jags traveled to Houston as underdogs to face the Texans. They left with an easy 29-7 victory.

And like that, expectations changed. We weren’t the team everybody in the league viewed as an easy W. Now we were a team nobody wanted to play, Lewis said. That was a feeling I could get used to.

The Jaguars finished the regular season with a 10-6 record and have won their past two playoff games to secure a spot in the AFC championship. But their hardest test is yet to come as they travel to New England to face the Patriots.

Now we’re facing our toughest challenge of the season, and maybe the biggest game in franchise history. Definitely the biggest game I’ve ever played in, Lewis said. When we play the type of football we’ve prepared to play, we know we can beat anybody. Anybody.

The Jaguars and Patriots will face off Sunday at 3:05 ET.

I am excited to have Mike Vrabel joining our organization as our new head coach, Titans owner Amy Adams Strunk said in a statement. In the interaction between Mike and (general manager) Jon (Robinson) during the interview, you could see their connection right away from the history they have with one another — seeing the game in a similar way and talking the same language.

Vrabel, who spent eight seasons with the Patriots during a 14-year playing career, has been coaching with the Texas since 2014 and was named the defensive coordinator in 2017.

Mike has a commanding presence and a deep knowledge for how he will attack this head coaching opportunity, Adams Strunk continued. Throughout his football career, he has played for, been mentored by and coached with successful teams and organizations. He knows what it takes to reach that level of sustained success — he has seen it first-hand. We have a chance to build on the solid foundation that we established over the past couple of years and I believe Mike is the right person to continue that progress.patriots_147_f747f0ca87e4613e-180x180

Barkley can be a versatile workhorse right away.

Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma. Barkley is considered here. GM John Dorsey ultimately goes the route he went during his first draft calling the shots with the Chiefs when he picked Eric Fisher No. 1 overall in the 2013 draft.

Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State. Surprise pick of the top 10. In this scenario, John Elway finds a veteran quarterback in free agency or via trade, as he doesn’t want to roll the dice on another rookie quarterback two years after he seemingly whiffed on Paxton Lynch.

I just got to watch the tape, Bouye said. I need to go look at the rulebook on [pass interference penalties], because you’re telling me the receiver can have his hands on me the whole way down the field, but if I look for the ball and try to protect myself from being pushed, it’s a flag?

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone was also baffled by the interference call. In a halftime interview with CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson, Marrone agreed that the officials made the correct call on the hit that knocked Rob Gronkowski out of the game, but he Blake Martinez Jersey disagreed with the PI call.

I thought it was a good call here, the helmet-to-helmet was a good call, Marrone said. I’m not sure about the [interference] on the sideline there.

The Jaguars were called for pass interference twice against the Patriots after only being hit with two PI penalties in 16 games during the regular season.

(That 112 figure is the current total of underclassmen that have declared for the draft as posted by The NFL is expected to release the official list later this week.)

Authentic Kids Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey The odds continue to mount against their success. Since 2014, when NFL draft evaluations changed for juniors, almost a third (31.6 percent) of those declaring have gone undrafted. Using that ratio, a record 37 underclassmen won’t be drafted in April. The total reflects a growing trend of bad advice, rampant agent runners and simply bad choices by some players.

As for how Morstead wound up on the field lined up as a defensive tackle on that final play, he said it was kind of random. Morstead said he lingered on the field longer than most players – soaking in the atmosphere of the Vikings’ celebration because he has found in the past that it kind of helps you get a little closure.

He spoke to his teammates in the locker room to encourage them, according to CBS’ broadcast.

Limited Youth Dansby Swanson Jersey How was Shazier injured? Shazier went to the ground clutching his back after tackling Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone on Cincinnati’s first possession of the game. It looked like a normal, everyday kind of tackle until Shazier didn’t get up.
Men's Majestic Houston Astros #45 Carlos Lee Replica White Strip MLB Jersey
Shazier was immobilized on a backboard, carted off the field, and taken directly to a Cincinnati hospital. He was transported back to Pittsburgh and underwent Nikita Kucherov Youth jersey spinal stabilization surgery. The Steelers placed him on injured reserve.

What’s Shazier’s prognosis? Shazier started rehab days after undergoing surgery, and he’s been healthy enough to make it to the team’s practice facility for meetings. He’s still very much a part of the Steelers, even if he never takes the field again.

But that’s not out of the question. Shazier’s father was asked if he believes his son will play again.

Yes, I do, Vernon Shazier said. I Shalieve. Shazier and his family consistently use that play on Shazier’s last name and the word believe when talking about his injury.

Reasons to be excited: Start with familiar faces on the opposite side who played a huge part in the Patriots’ Super Bowl win last year — running back LeGarrette Blount and defensive end Chris Long. They are thought of highly in New England and now to win another Super Bowl, the Patriots will have to stop them. And then consider this angle: When the Patriots won their third Super Bowl in four years in the 2004 season, they beat the Eagles to do so. Now as they go for a third Super Bowl in four years, it is the Eagles again. Neat storyline. Finally, a Tom Brady vs. Nick Foles quarterback battle favors New England.

Reasons to be concerned: For those who believe defense wins championships, this isn’t good news for the Patriots. The defenses that have had the greatest success against the Patriots are those that can rush four and get pressure on Brady, while dropping seven into coverage. The Philadelphia defense has shown the ability to do so.

Patriots will win if: They win the turnover differential. Arguably the most impressive statistic in the Bill Belichick era is the Patriots are 159-15 when they have a positive turnover differential (including playoffs). So always start there when it comes to the team’s chances at winning. — Mike Reiss

They’ll also likely have Charcandrick West back, and the team re-signed C.J. Spiller earlier this week as well to round out the rushing attack.

Wild Card Weekend will kick off with the AFC Wild Card Round on Saturday at 4:35 p.m. ET on ABC/ESPN (live stream) when the Kansas City Chiefs play host to the Tennessee Titans. These two teams met in the preseason, but a lot has changed since then. Kansas City isn’t quite the same dominant team it was in the first half of the season.
Men's George Gervin Authentic Silver Grey Adidas Jersey: NBA San Antonio Spurs #44 Alternate Finals
Things have even changed for the Chiefs in the last week, who were forced to put running back Akeem Hunt on IR after he suffered an ankle injury in Week 17. Still, the team’s lead back is Kareem Hunt, a rookie out of Toledo, who finished the regular season with 1,327 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.

Nevin Lawson Authentic Jersey The Titans are a run-heavy offense in their own right and will Teddy Purcell Jersey rely on DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. Murray was essentially brought to Tennessee to mentor the young Henry and pass the baton. Murray’s second season with the Titans resulted in a career-low 659 yards rushing 锟斤拷 almost exactly half of his total from 2016 锟斤拷 and six touchdowns. Henry didn’t quite make up for all of that lack of production, upping his career high in yards rushing to 744 锟斤拷 from 490 in his rookie season 锟斤拷 with five scores.

Both teams will need to make some adjustments, especially on offense, in the offseason, but first, they’ll try to make their way through the playoffs.

Buffalo found itself with a fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line. It tried to draw the Jaguars offside, but Taylor didn’t even really try to sell it. So the Bills called a timeout, which made very little sense at the time. Obviously the Jaguars wouldn’t really jump offside, right?

The Buffalo Bills are 0-4 straight up and 1-3 against the spread over their last four playoff games.

wings_1028After advancing to the playoffs for the first time since 1999, the Bills will now try to earn their first playoff win since 1995 when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday afternoon.

It took some help from the Cincinnati Bengals upsetting the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17, but after 17 straight seasons of missing the playoffs, the Bills are finally back on the big stage.

(Joe Callahan wound up on the practice squad.) And from what I can tell, there’s confidence in Hundley now. One Green Bay staffer said Wednesday, “He’ll be fine. He’s an extremely hard worker, he knows the offense, He’s a good leader and the players like him. They’ll play hard for him and believe in him.”

At quarterback, there’s an element of the unknown that can’t be erased until you see the player in honest-to-god game action. Hundley will get that Sunday, and we’ll learn more over the next few weeks. Remember, the Packers have been masters at developing backups behind a star—Matt Hasselbeck, Aaron Brooks, Mark Brunell, Ty Detmer and Rodgers himself came up behind Brett Favre. Time will tell if we’re talking the same way about Hundley down the line.

Tennessee took the ensuing drive 62 yards in six plays to cut the KC lead to 21-16 and give fans a reason to be nervous. Another Kansas City punt only exacerbated those concerns. Mariota, who had struggled early in the day, was buoyed by Derrick Henry, the hard-rushing sophomore tailback who churned out yards after contact in the Kansas City cold. The pair pushed the Titans 80 yards in 5:09, a long drive culminating in a 22-yard touchdown strike to Eric Decker.

Tennessee’s inability to cap those drives with two-point conversions left the team unable to extend its lead, giving Alex Smith another shot to lead the Chiefs back to a dramatic win. Instead, he flailed in the pocket, forcing a turnover on downs as the two-minute warning approached and dealing a serious blow to his team’s chances.

But then, a miracle seemed to deliver the Chiefs from two decades of playoff futility. Derrick Johnson returned a Henry fumble 56 yards for a tide-shifting touchdown, only to have the play ripped away on review. Two plays later, Mariota threw a game-clinching block as Henry rumbled forward for the game’s final first down.

What this means for the Chiefs: Kansas City hasn’t won a playoff game at home since Joe Montana was the team’s quarterback. Andy Reid is now 1-4 with the Chiefs in the postseason.

For the NFL, the transition from 2017 to 2018 marked the end of the regular season and the beginning of the postseason. With the wild-card round complete, the NFL playoff schedule continues with the divisional round and ends Feb. 4 in Minnesota, where Super Bowl 52 will take place.

As is their custom, Zach Ertz FaceTimes his wife, Julie, first thing in the morning, before he’s showered and eaten breakfast. It’s Week 12 of the 2017 NFL season. Zach, the Eagles’ fifth-year tight end, is sitting in his room at the team hotel in Philadelphia, five hours before kickoff against the Bears; Julie, a stalwart of the U.S. Women’s National Team and a breakout star of the 2015 World Cup, is at the dining room table in their high-rise apartment overlooking the Delaware River. He asks if she’s excited for the game; she asks if he still wants breakfast for dinner. She’ll soon be headed to church with Zach’s mom, Lisa. They say their I love you’s, and game day can begin for arguably the NFL’s most athletically accomplished power couple.

The Ertzes moved into this apartment just a few months earlier, but already it’s filled with reminders of their faith. There’s the wooden sign over the coffee maker with the message, All I need today is a little bit of COFFEE and JESUS. On wooden plank above the kitchen cabinet, a passage from the Gospel of Luke is painted in white cursive script: I will show you what he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid his foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. There’s a Christmas tree, and a message written in chalk on a black chalkboard nearby: 30 days til Christmas.

Hasselbeck will call the Pro Bowl alongside play-by-play voice Sean McDonough, who worked with Gruden the last two seasons on MNF.

Hasselbeck spent Nick Vigil Youth jersey 18 seasons in the NFL playing for the Colts, Titans, Seahawks and Packers. He was a three-time Pro Bowler, and Druley said he would be a great fit in this assignment since he has connections to players and coaches around the league.

Hasselbeck joined ESPN as a NFL analyst in March 2016 on the same day he announced his retirement from pro football.

Steve Young, who is also an analyst for ESPN, was another potential candidate to replace Gruden, but he said Thursday on KNBR he wasn’t interested in the job.

Julie says she doesn’t get nervous on game days; Zach’s mom is nervous enough for the both of them.

Another clean sheet for Whitworth, in the 51-17 skunking of the Giants in the Meadowlands, per Pro Football Focus: zero sacks, pressures or hits allowed on Jared Goff, who posted the first four-TD game of his career. Whitworth also made the pass-block of the day. Facing an impossible third-and-33, Goff dumped a short pass to Robert Woods, and Whitworth got in front and waylaid a Giant to spring Woods. Womens Jah Reid Jersey The result: a stunning 52-yard touchdown.

However, it was the touchdown Freeman didn’t score that was more on his mind afterward (and surely that of some fantasy football players, as well). Freeman was stripped by Bucs defensive end Robert Ayers Jr. on a goal-line carry early in the second quarter. Toilolo fell on the football in the end zone to help give the Falcons a 14-7 lead. Freeman also wouldn’t have ripped off his scoring run without Schraeder falling on another one of his fumbles early in the fourth quarter.

It felt good tonight, said Quinn, whose team will at least clinch a wild-card berth by beating either the Saints or Panthers. We feel like as a team we can make a big jump. Tonight was a step in that direction.

The Falcons, though, are well aware that such momentum can come to a crashing halt Sunday against the Saints (10-4) in a game that has added juice because of what transpired when the two squads met earlier this month. During the fourth quarter, Saints coach Sean Payton made a choking signal from the sideline at Freeman in reference to Atlanta’s epic collapse against New England in Super Bowl 51.
