Here’s a look back at times the franchise has tortured its fans by coming agonizingly close to the NFL’s top prize only to fall short.

The Philadelphia Eagles have three NFL championships to call their own: 1948, 1949, 1960. But they have never won the Super Bowl 锟斤拷 until Sunday. The underdog Eagles stunned the New England Patriots for a 41-33 win in Super Bowl 52.

Since the Super Bowl debuted in 1967, Philadelphia has qualified for the postseason 21 times but only advanced to the finale three times. In both prior trips, the Eagles left without the Lombardi Trophy.

Luckily for them, they finally know what it’s like to come out on top.:

If what’s happening on the field isn’t quite enough to draw your attention, putting some money down on the action could make things a bit more interesting. Setting up a Super Bowl squares game is one way to stay involved in the matchup and may help keep the interest up for friends and/or guests who might not be as into football as the rest of us.

Most people will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday, so why not make a little coin while you’re at it? There are a few options to get people involved:

If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, you can pass the grid around or set it up as an activity as guests enter. Guests who want to play can fill out as many squares as they want 锟斤拷 typically for $1 per square. (You can do this ahead of the big game too, if you’re not watching with a group, and have the grid filled out ahead of time.)

Golden State led 104-93 on David West’s two free throws with 11:31 to play before a 9-0 Clippers run cut it to two.

Curry let it fly from nearly halfcourt to end the first quarter, both his furthest 3 of the season and first as time expired. Those have been his signature shots in recent seasons, so the sellout crowd went crazy.

The two-time NBA MVP made another 3 just before halftime, then Los Angeles’ Danilo Gallinari drained a 47-footer at the buzzer to get the Clippers within 70-58 at the break.

Toronto (37-20-5) has Jonas Brodin Youth jersey won 11 of 12 overall and improved to 14-4-2 since Jan. 4.

The Panthers (26-25-6) have dropped back-to-back games after opening their five-game road trip with three straight wins. Florida entered the night six points out of a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Florida threatened in the third with Luongo pulled for an extra attacker, but Andersen managed to thwart the Panthers’ best chance — a point shot from Keith Yandle with 23 seconds remaining.

The 49ers had no choice but to pay Jimmy Garoppolo 锟斤拷 and the next QB will get more

Rodgers is arguably the best quarterback in the NFC, but he was sidelined for most of 2017 with a broken collarbone. At 34, there’s still probably plenty of good football left in Rodgers and Green Bay will want to make sure he’s with the Packers for all of it.

But with so many other quarterbacks set to receive huge contracts soon, the 49ers’ deal with Garoppolo may look prudent and cost-effective soon.

It was a deal the Niners had no choice but to sign and JaVale McGee Womens Jersey if their young quarterback continues to play at all like he did in December, it won’t be one they come to regret.

Garafolo reported on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football that even McDaniels’ agent, Bob Lamonte, told the OC that he’s making perhaps the biggest professional mistake of his career by backing out of this Colts job at this point, according to sources informed of the talks between McDaniels and his agent.

It’s not hard to see why Lamonte — who also represents Colts general manager Chris Ballard — would have issued a caution to McDaniels after making such a decision. There were questions about McDaniels stemming from his last coaching stop with the Denver Broncos. While he’s rehabbed much of his reputation both on and off the field in recent years, Tuesday night’s decision likely undid all of that in the eyes of 31 other teams.

As a result, Lamonte ended his relationship with McDaniels.

The good news is the Jets are fueled up for the makeover. According to OverTheCap.com, they are more than $73 million under the NFL salary cap, and that’s before factoring in moves like the release defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson ($11 million cap hit). They also are sitting on eight picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, including two second-rounders from last year’s Sheldon Richardson trade.

Elite Youth David Krejci Jersey He’ll have a couple of advantages over McDaniels when it comes to producing in 2018. He’s got the better roster with which to work 锟斤拷 though a returning Andrew Luck could negate that edge 锟斤拷 thanks to a Lions team that has produced winning records in three of the last four seasons. He also has NFL experience on both sides of the ball, having worked as the Patriots’ assistant offensive line coach early in his tenure with the team. Re-signing Ziggy Ansah could also give him the kind of singular pass-rushing presence he lacked in 2017 锟斤拷 with apologies to emerging star Trey Flowers.

Anthony Davis is wearing DeMarcus Cousins’ jersey in the All-Star game

DeMarcus Cousins can’t play in this All-Star game with a torn Achilles, but his teammate won’t let him be forgotten. Instead of wearing his normal No. 23 jersey, Anthony Davis put on Cousins’ uniform and will wear it throughout the game.

Womens Cameron Maybin Jersey Yuzuru Hanyu isn’t ready to give up his crown just yet. After capturing the gold medal in Sochi, Hanyu followed it up with an amazing performance in Pyeongchang, easily taking first place in the men’s figure skating short program. Hanyu is now the heavy favorite going into the next day’s free skate program, which will determine the medals.

Hanyu blew away the field with a score of 111.68, though there are a handful of challengers right behind him. Spain’s Javier Fernandez got 107.58, while fellow Japanese contender Shoma Uno is third with Isaiah Crowell Jersey 104.17. Other top contenders include China’s Jin Boyang, Russian athlete Dmitri Aliev, and Canada’s Patrick Chan.

The short program was a mixed bag for Team USA. New folk hero Adam Rippon was excellent once again, finishing seventh, but his lack of quad jumps still hurts his overall score with the judges. Eighteen-year-old Nathan Chen couldn’t live up to the hype, falling multiple times and plummeting to 17th. Vincent Zhou placed 12th with a solid, if unspectacular run. It will be a surprise if any Americans make the podium after the free skate.

With the short program in the books, all eyes now turn to the free skate, where the pressure is ramped up and the margin for error disappears. That event can be seen in the United States on Friday night at 8 p.m. ET.
Womens Rickey Jackson Jersey
The NBC primetime block will begin at 7 p.m., an hour before the ice dancing short program. There will be other sports covered during the primetime block, which will run until around midnight. That primetime block will also include the women’s 500-meter speed skating competition, the two-man bobsledding event, and the women’s freestyle skiing halfpipe qualifying.

The latter event is one of the strongest events for the United States, so it’s definitely one to watch.

The Shibutanis aren’t the only Americans competing in the ice dance short program. Right after the Shibutanis is the American team of Madison Chock and Evan Bates. The third and final U.S. team in the program is the team of Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, who will start 22nd out of 24 teams.

All three American teams can count themselves among the top ice dance teams in the world. But there are some other strong teams, so even a podium isn’t guaranteed. The ice dancing will wrap up with the free dance on Monday.

The Colts thought they were locked into getting Josh McDaniels as their next head coach.

Now that the Patriots offensive coordinator won’t be the Colts’ new coach, there’s no reason for Indianapolis to sweat or fret.

The Colts nowhire the winning offensive coordinator of the Super Bowl in the Eagles’ Frank Reich, not the loser in McDaniels.

With every other head-coaching vacancy in the NFL already filled, Indianapolis has the luxury of tapping into a Philadelphia staff that won it all without restrictions or waiting. Indy should take advantage and pluck from the suddenly hot Doug Pederson tree while it has the chance.

Reich did a terrific job working with Pederson to get the best out of two quarterbacks this past season, Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. There’s a bit of Luck in both of those guys, Wentz with the fearless physicality and Foles with the relentless gunslinging. Before he was hired by the Eagles in 2016, Reich put in some strong work with another tough, veteran QB in the Chargers’ Philip Rivers.

Reich during Super Bowl 52 week seemed ready to take over an entire team. The Eagles’ offensive players love him. For a team that won the Super Bowl with a lot of key backups, Reich, with a playing background similar to that of Pederson, provided both motivation and inspiration.

Reich’s path in NFL coaching has featured a lot of faith and determination, two things the Colts need with Luck.

The Colts went on with their scheduled Wednesday press conference, even without it being held to introduce McDaniels. General manager Chris Ballard held firm that a desired replacement for Pagano is still out there.

So that’s the guy the Colts had decided to hire. He was 32 when he got the Denver job, a boy wonder. That was the excuse whispered on his behalf by those who considered him for their head coaching jobs now, with his 42nd birthday just a couple months away.

Maybe this is a blown opportunity for Indianapolis, as when the Jets thought they had Bill Belichick locked up only for him to slip out the back door. Or maybe, and this seems more likely at the moment, it’s a chance for Indy to wind up with someone who has the character to not undermine it as drastically as McDaniels has.

Hardly anyone knew who Mike Tomlin was when the Steelers hired him. When the Eagles hired Doug Pederson away from the Chiefs, “We all laughed, at least a little,” wrote Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Marcus Hayes.

The Oakland Raiders could be that team in 2018.

The NFL players union is fighting back hard regarding Ezekiel Elliott six-game suspension.

The NFLPA filed a request for a temporary restraining order Thursday in the Eastern District of Texas after the appeal hearing regarding the domestic violence case surrounding the Cowboys running Brandon Crawford Jersey back ended after 2 1/? days. The order called for the courts to block any suspension of Elliott upheld by NFL arbitrator Harold Henderson, according to a court filing obtained by ESPN.

Overall, injury rates have been pretty constant over the last few seasons, but considering the efforts the league has taken to increase player safety, that’s cold comfort (and suggests the league doesn’t know how to reverse the tide).

It’s also haunting to consider Aaron Hernandez, the 27-year-old former Patriots star who committed suicide while serving a life sentence for a 2015 murder conviction. His autopsy revealed he had an extreme case of CTE. Far from an isolated case, maybe it’s time we start asking whether this game is even worth it anymore.

I’d be lying if I said I was going to stop watching next week, or next month. But every season I get a little closer to turning off the NFL for good.

410-pound Baylor tight end has perfect NFL backup plan

A total of 253 players will be selected at the NFL Draft later this month. Another group will be signed as undrafted free agents shortly thereafter. Yet not all of those players will make it on an NFL roster come September.

There are only 53 spots on a regular-season roster in the NFL, which leaves a boatload of talented players on the streets looking for work. It leads some guys to become weekend warriors and get 9-to-5 jobs. Others go back to school.

For a 410-pound prospect, he has the athletic ability to find a role in the NFL. After all, he did play some tight end in college and set the world on fire when he caught a touchdown pass while at Baylor.

If football doesn’t work out for McGowan, he won’t be the first to go from the Womens Al Jefferson Jersey sport to wrestling. Goldberg and The Rock did the same, so at least he has that to strive for.

The amazing finish in the Saints-Vikings game on Fox earned a 21.8 overnight rating, down 23 percent from last year, according to Sports Media Watch.

The TV audience for the game, from Minneapolis, was the lowest overnight rating since 2009 and the third-lowest for the late Sunday Divisional Round game since 2002.

Tyler Myers Elite Jersey Meanwhile, the Jaguars-Steelers game, in which the underdog Jaguars won 45-42, drew a 20.4 overnight on CBS, down 7 percent from last year.

The lowest-rated playoff game was the Titans-Patriots match-up, which drew a lowly 16.6 rating on CBS, down 9 percent 鈥?and the lowest since 2000.

The league followed its early-June finals with the 2017 NBA Draft on June 22 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

NFL Combine: The new way QB prospects are getting dissected

In the case of quarterback prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine, hand size suddenly matters a whole lot this year.
Limited Josh Hill Jersey Blake Wheeler Men's Adidas White 2016 Authentic World Cup Hockey Jersey - Home Team USA #26 Jerseys
After some scouts theorized that top prospect Jared Goff’s fumbling problem was because of his 9-inch hands and new Browns coach Hue Jackson said he values a big-handed quarterback because of bad weather in the AFC North, sizing up passing hands has become all the rage.

Despite the formation of a blue-ribbon panel of former coaches, players and executives to debate the issue, the NFL reportedly plans no changes to its controversial catch rule.

Nothing has been finalized, but my sense is that there will be no change to the rule or tweak of the language, NFL director of officiating Dean Blandino told the NFL Network on Thursday. We will certainly continue to use video to educate in this area.

The Jaguars trounced the field on the list of unused 2015 Womens T.J. McDonald Jersey salary-cap space that NFL teams will carry over to this season with a whopping $32.7 million.

The Giants will carry more than $11.1 million, while the Jets have $2.4 million in 2015 space to use this fall.

The salary cap is expected to be roughly $156 million per team in 2016, which would be an increase of $13 million over last year.

The job pays Reedy $11 per hour.

As soon as our offseason officially starts, Reedy told ESPN. I’ll be back at Care Ride when I’m able to. The work don’t stop. Everybody still needs help.

Reedy went undrafted after his college career at Toledo. Like thousands of others, he has continued to pursue his NFL dream. He was cut in 2014 by the Falcons, then placed on the practice squad.
Elite Malik Hooker Jersey
When he was out of football in 2015 after being cut by the Falcons again, he landed a job at Care Ride. The Buccaneers cut him at the end of training camp in 2016, but added him to the practice squad. He made the team for the 2017 season and played in nine games for the Buccaneers.

When the Buccaneers left the Tampa area to escape the path of Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, Reedy stayed behind to help Care Ride.

I know Bernard’s heart. His mom’s there, his sister’s there with her little baby, Care Ride operations manager Vince Cocks told ESPN. His heart’s in St. Pete. And when he had some time, he came to help us and it was absolutely wonderful.

Earlier Sunday, fans gathered around the Ray Lewis statue outside the stadium, taking photos as security staff looked on.

One man, Tom Rose of White Marsh, Md., wore an American flag shirt and a stars-and-stripes cap with “USA” written on it. Underneath his flag shirt was a Ravens jersey.

Latavius Murray, RB, Vikings: With the season-ending injury to Cook, Murray is in line to pick up the slack. While he was beaten out of the starting job by Cook, Murray is coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him score 12 touchdowns. And having signed a three-year, $15 million deal in the offseason, Minnesota figures to give him the opportunity to earn that money on the field. He’s likely the most targeted free agent in leagues where he’s available (he’s owned in 77 percent of ESPN leagues). He’ll likely have some company in the backfield with McKinnon, but should see goal-line carries. Minnesota faces Chicago on Monday night and the Bears have allowed a running back to score in all four games this season.

Baltimore Ravens players took a knee before the national anthem, to a mixture of boos and cheers from those in the crowd, then stood for the playing of the anthem before their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

An announcement to the crowd asked fans to join the Ravens players and organization in prayer to embrace “kindness, unity, equality and justice for all Americans.”

The Grizzlies could therefore have major holes in their frontcourt on Monday, allowing little-used players such as rookie Ivan Rabb or Deyonta Davis to see additional minutes in the frontcourt — both are available in essentially all leagues.

“I would say keep an eye on that choice at [No.] 5,” former Browns GM Phil Savage said. “Unless there’s just a player that they’re totally in love with — most likely a defensive back, in my mind — I don’t think there’s a wide receiver there to take at [No.] 5. I would look for them to try to be on the move from that spot. At a certain point, from [Nos.] 10 to 50, in essence you’re getting a very similar player in many ways. I think they’re positioned to have a strong draft at [Nos.] 5 and 18. If they stay put, they’re gonna get two really good players. If they move down, they may have an opportunity to pick up three or four really good players.”

Where else could the pressure points for first-round trades come?

The Super Bowl is on NBC this year and I’m guessing they’d probably move the game to the Bravo channel if they got stuck with Eagles-Titans.

The only reason to watch this game would be to see whether or not Marcus Mariota throws another touchdown pass to himself. The good news for NBC is that the oddsmakers basically don’t think this game has any chance of happening. Of the 16 matchups that are possible for the Super Bowl, this one has the longest odds at 175-to-1. One reason this game might actually be worth watching — besides the fact that it’s the Super Bowl and I’ll watch no matter what, even if it’s on Bravo — is because one of these two teams would get their first Super Bowl win in franchise history.

This game would be a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX, which is horrible news for fans in Philadelphia because I’m not sure they’d be able to handle losing to the Patriots for the second time in 13 years.
Steve McLendon Authentic Jersey
The biggest downside to this game is that we would likely be spending the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl debating whether or not Donovan McNabb actually puked in Super Bowl XXXIX.

However, we’re here to change that. If you don’t Mark Jackson Youth jersey have a team to cheer for this week, then you should be spending all your energy cheering for the best possible Super Bowl, and that’s where we come in. With eight teams left in the playoffs, there’s a total of 16 Super Bowl matchups that are still possible, and let’s just say, some of them are a lot more appealing than others.

Not only did we rank all 16 possible Super Bowls, but we also included the potential point spread for each game and the odds that it will happen. For instance, an Eagles-Titans Super Bowl only has a 175-to-1 chance of happening, which means if you were hoping for Nick Foles against Tennessee, I have some bad news, it’s not going to happen.

Very little went right for the Cowboys during their visit to Denver, as Dallas took a 42-17 thrashing. After the game, Cowboys Coach Jason Garrett made specific mention of the struggles of quarterback Dak Prescott, who completed 30 of 50 passes for 238 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
