The Bengals placed John Ross III on Injured Reserve yesterday Womens Alex Redmond Jersey , and are now trying to find a replacement for him.Today, they are working out free agent wide receiver DaMarkus Lodge, per NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport:Lodge was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this spring as an undrafted free agent. He stayed with the team throughout the preseason and was cut before the regular season began.In college, Lodge was a four-year player for Ole Miss, playing with notable receivers Laquon Treadwell http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-andy-dalton-jersey , former Bengal Cody Core, A.J. Brown, and D.K. Metcalf. In 2017 and 2018, Lodge finished second in receiving yards for the Rebels. In total, he accumulated 1 http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-tyler-kroft-jersey ,790 yards on 122 receptions and 14 touchdowns over the course of his college career.Interestingly enough, Lodge going to Ole Miss was the reason Bengals wide receiver Damion Willis ended up at Troy.There were talks about Lodge potentially getting drafted in the middle rounds this year, but his name never got called. With all their injuries at wide receiver, Cincinnati could give Lodge the opportunity he never got from Tampa Bay or any other team. Cincinnati faces a huge inter-conference matchup this week in facing the high-flying Saints. New Orleans is on a emotional high after beating the formerly-undefeated Rams this past Sunday. Will the Saints be emotionally and physically exhausted from their high-profile contest against Los Angeles? Will they be the same team in the cold weather at Paul Brown Stadium?And, what about Cincinnati? The Bengals look to be without star receiver A.J. Green this week Boomer Esiason Jersey , so others will need to pick up some major slack to get the win this week. John Sheeran and I explore these topics and take your questions on the air.

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets stayed in the AFC East to find their new head coach.Former Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase agreed Wednesday night to take the Jets job Christian Wilkins Miami Dolphins Jerseys , a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.The hiring ends a 10-day, wide-open search for New York, which met with seven other coaches about their vacancy, including Mike McCarthy, Kris Richard, Jim Caldwell, Eric Bieniemy, Todd Monken, Matt Rhule and Kliff Kingsbury, who took the Arizona Cardinals job.The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the team had not yet announced the hiring.Gase was 23-26 in three years with Miami Christian Wilkins white jersey , including a playoff game in the 2016 season, before being fired last week. It turns out he’ll remain in the division, and face the Dolphins twice every regular season as a rival head coach.Gase replaces Todd Bowles, who was fired after he went 24-40 in four seasons and no playoff appearances. He’s the Jets’ first hire with previous full-time NFL head coaching experience since Bill Parcells’ three-year tenure from 1997-99.The 40-year-old Gase is also the first offensive-focused coach since Rich Kotite in 1996.Regarded as one of the league’s top young offensive minds, he’ll be tasked with furthering the development of quarterback Sam Darnold and helping New York snap an eight-year postseason drought.While he had control over personnel in Miami, Gase will work closely in New York with general manager Mike Maccagnan, who was retained by team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, to put together a competitive roster around Darnold. The Jets are expected to have around $100 million in salary cap space this offseason, and will be very active in free agency.Those factors combined, Johnson insisted leading into the team’s search Christian Wilkins Jersey Womens , made the Jets an attractive spot for a head coach to land.“If you can make it here, you’re a freakin’ legend,” Johnson said. “That counts for something.”Gase will get his shot to do just that.He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at LSU in 2000 under Nick Saban before becoming a recruiting assistant for the Tigers for two years. Gase’s first NFL job came in 2003 under Steve Mariucci in Detroit, where he worked his way up to quarterbacks coach in five years with the Lions. He also worked for Rod Marinelli and Mike Martz in Detroit.Gase followed Martz to San Francisco in 2008 before heading to Denver the following season. He worked as the Broncos’ wide receivers coach for two years before becoming the quarterbacks coach — where he worked closely with Manning — and was promoted to offensive coordinator by coach John Fox in 2013 and Denver’s offense set several league records during Gase’s two seasons calling the plays.Fox brought Gase along with him to Chicago in 2015 as his offensive coordinator. Seen as a rising star in the league, he was hired by the Dolphins as their head coach the following season.Gase had a promising debut in Miami, going 10-6 in his first season and leading the Dolphins to their first playoff appearance since 2008. But the team struggled the following year, going 6-10 with quarterback Ryan Tannehill sidelined all season following knee surgery.Gase was fired after this season as part of an organizational shake-up after the Dolphins finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the 15th time in 17 years. There were also questions about whether Gase had lost the support of some players.Miami ranked 31st in the NFL in offense, a franchise worst, and 29th in defense, allowing a franchise-record 6 Christian Wilkins Jersey Cheap ,257 yards this season.Gase’s Dolphins were particularly good in one-score games, going 7-1 in those situations this season and 20-6 in three years. Their record in games decided by more than one score was 3-20, including 0-8 this season. Miami also lost its last seven games on the road.He’ll try to change his fortunes — as well as those of the Jets — with a new opportunity.ESPN reported that Darnold spoke with Gase on FaceTime on Monday night, and the two clicked. It also reported that Manning called Johnson Tuesday night to provide a sparkling reference for Gase.The hiring was met with some trepidation from frustrated Jets fans, many of whom were pulling for McCarthy, Monken or Rhule to be hired to turn the franchise around and end a Super Bowl drought that’s 50 years and counting.The franchise’s hope is that the combination of Gase and Darnold will be able to get there someday soon. The beginning of the National Football League season is finally here! After a lengthy hiatus, the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles will host the Atlanta Falcons to kick off the 2018-19 season on Thursday.With the season returning, as does our NFL pick ’em. Without further ado, let’s get this show on the road (home team in bold). Game lines taken from Odds Shark.Philadelphia (-1.5) vs. AtlantaCarson Wentz isn’t back yet, but it seems like he will be ready very soon. In a rematch of last season’s NFC Divisional Round Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , I’ll take the Eagles at home in front of an emotional Philadelphia crowd.<em>Pick: Philadelphia (-1.5)</em>Baltimore (-7.5) vs. BuffaloThe Ravens’ defense led the NFL in takeaways last season, with 34. The Bills have announced Nathan Peterman as the week one starter at QB… The same Nathan Peterman who threw five interceptions in week 11 last season against the Chargers.<em>Pick: Baltimore (-7.5)</em>Indianapolis (-3) vs. CincinnatiWhat are we going to see from Andrew Luck in his return? That is the million dollar question.<em>Pick: Cincinnati (+3)</em>New England (-6) vs. HoustonThe Patriots lost their home/season opener last season against the Chiefs, and I just don’t see them dropping back-to-back home openers. I like Houston as a team this season, but in this matchup I like Brady & the Pats more.<em>Pick: New England (-6)</em>Jacksonville (-3) vs. New York GiantsJalen Ramsey vs. OBJ. This one should be fun. The Giants win & begin their redemption tour after an embarrassing 2017.<em>Pick: New York Giants (+3)</em>Pittsburgh (-3.5) vs. ClevelandLe’Veon Bell will not play week 1, and it seems like the Pittsburgh locker room is just about done with him. The new-look Browns are a popular underdog pick this season, but they get knocked down a peg in the season opener.<em>Pick: Pittsburgh (-3.5)</em>Minnesota (-6) vs. San FranciscoSimply put, the Vikings are the more talented team.<em>Pick: Minnesota (-6)</em>New Orleans (-9.5) vs. Tampa Bay9.5 points is a lot, but I’ll take the Saints here. They are bound to put up a plethora of points at home and the Bucs won’t be able to catch up.<em>Pick: New Orleans (-9.5)</em>Tennessee (-1) vs. MiamiThis has got to be the season in which Marcus Mariota starts playing up to his potential.<em>Pick: Tennessee (-1)</em>Los Angeles Chargers (-3) vs. Kansas CityThe Bolts are division favorites, but it would be <em>so </em>Chargers to lose their opener with so many expectations. However, I don’t think they do.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Chargers (-3)</em>Carolina (-3) vs. DallasI’m picking the Panthers. Prediction: One player who makes a huge leap this season will be Christian McCaffrey.<em>Pick: Carolina (-3)</em>Denver (-3) vs. SeattleA lot of people are writing Seattle off this year. I think this unit Christian Wilkins Miami Dolphins Jerseys , with a chip on their shoulder, goes into Denver and pulls out a win.<em>Pick: Seattle (+3)</em>Arizona (-1) vs. WashingtonThe real question is, how long until Josh Rosen time in Arizona?<em>Pick: Arizona (-1)</em>Green Bay (-7.5) vs. ChicagoAaron Rodgers. Back. Fresh off a monster extension, this will be his night in Lambeau.<em>Pick: Green Bay (-7.5)</em>Detroit (-7.5) vs. New York JetsSam Darnold marches into Detroit and wins his first NFL start on Monday night, sending the New York media into a frenzy.<em>Pick: New York Jets (+7.5)</em>Los Angeles Rams (-4.5) vs. Oakland  The Raiders, from their relationship with the city of Oakland to trading their best player (Khalil Mack), are a mess.<em>Pick: Los Angeles Rams (-4.5)</em>

As the top four point-producers in the NFL were advancing to the conference championship round for the first time ever Los Angeles Rams Jerseys 2019 , Dak Prescott was getting sacked by his own teammate, Tom Brady was embracing the underdog role a little too tightly and C.J. Anderson was making the most of his second, third … no, fourth chance.The Patriots (12-5) reached their eighth straight AFC championship and 13th in the Brady-Bill Belichick era. Yet, there was Brady after New England pulverized the Chargers telling CBS’ Tracy Wolfson, “I know everyone thinks we suck, and, you know, can’t win any games. So, we’ll see. It’ll be fun.”Brady will try to get to his ninth Super Bowl on Sunday when the Patriots visit the Kansas City Chiefs (13-4), who walloped the Colts 31-13 behind Patrick Mahomes for their first playoff win at Arrowhead since 2004.Maybe Brady was miffed that his team was installed as an underdog (three points) for the first time in 67 games.Or maybe he’s just not too thrilled about hitting the road, where the Patriots went 3-5, instead of staying home where they went 9-0 and trailed for just seven minutes total — all against the Chiefs, whom they beat 43-40 on Oct. 14.As Brady shoots for his third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl 2019 Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams , Mahomes will try to get the Chiefs into their first one since 1970.A random act of kindness has netted AFC Championship tickets for a man called Dave who helped dig a Chiefs backup guard Jeff Allen out of the snow Saturday as he was headed to the game.Allen tweeted that “a nice guy named Dave” got him back on the road and asked his followers to help him find the man so he could give him tickets to the conference championship.Hundreds of people replied — many claiming to be Dave — and thousands retweeted the plea.On Sunday, Allen tweeted that he has found the real Dave “despite the recent influx in people changing their name to Dave in the KC area lol.”Prescott didn’t have to look far for the player who bear-hugged him on his only sack in Dallas’ 30-22 loss to the Rams on Saturday night — it was his own right tackle La’el Collins.Dante Fowler was credited with the 8-yard sack that pushed Dallas out of field goal range late in the first half. What made the play unusual was that Fowler barely got a hand on Prescott — OK, he slapped him four times — but Prescott somehow ended up with Collins draped all over him.Prescott spun free and ran to his right. But as Aaron Donald closed in, officials blew the play dead.“From my view the quarterback’s progress had stopped moving forward,” referee John Parry explained. “There were hands around him and another defender was coming, so we went in the grasp to protect the quarterback.”The Rams (14-3) won thanks to a 273-yard rushing effort that included 123 yards and two touchdowns from Anderson, who howled afterward, “I’m just old and fat.”The Broncos jettisoned his fat contract in the spring with Anderson coming off his first 1,000-yard season, even though the running back that helped them win Super Bowl 50 had relatively few miles on his football odometer.The Panthers picked him up but then decided not to share many of Christian McCaffrey’s snaps with Anderson before cutting him late in the season. Anderson signed with his hometown Oakland Raiders but he was inactive for one game before they, too, waived him.The Rams needed a fill-in after star Todd Gurley II buckled a knee in December, and Anderson quickly picked up his phone and L.A.’s playbook.He rumbled for 299 yards and two TDs on 43 carries for a whopping 7-yard average over the final two regular-season games. Then, with Gurley back Taylor Rapp Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , Anderson ran all over the Cowboys, giving him 422 yards and four TDs on 66 carries for a 6.3-yard average.“I think the last two weeks without Todd, he showed what he can do,” Rams quarterback Jared Goff said. “Then, this week, having both of them is special and it gives you a real dual-threat of backs and different backs. … It’s just been a really good combo.”Anderson allows the Rams to take their own 1-2 backfield punch into the NFC championship against the Saints (14-3), who have running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram to share their rushing load.“I think C.J.’s done a great job since he’s gotten here and then, obviously, we know what a special player Todd is,” Rams coach Sean McVay said after Gurley ran 16 times for 115 yards and a TD against Dallas. “… I think they are a nice complement to each other.”Anderson, 27, could have given up after three teams that didn’t even make the playoffs gave up on him in 2018.Instead, he’s salvaged a career and surely has general managers salivating at the thought of his impending free agency this spring.“I guess it was a good thing I got hurt,” cracked Gurley. Robert Woods has long ago proven himself reliable.Now Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Stitched , he has proven himself to be underpaid.The Rams wide receiver, who led a Super Bowl team in receptions last year, has become a bargain, but he isn’t focusing on his contract right now.“I go out and compete every single day, and work to be the best,” Woods said, via Gary Klein of the . “And I just think my play will show it all.“I feel like I will get what I deserve.”Woods may have to wait, as he has three years left on his contract. The five-year, $34 million deal he signed two years ago was speculative, after a good-not-great run with the Bills. He’s not among the top 30 at his position in terms of annual value, but he has proven his value to the Rams.After Cooper Kupp was lost to injury, Woods led the Rams with 86 receptions, and topped 1,000 yards for the first-time in his career (1 Taylor Rapp black jersey ,219).“Just the start of it,” Woods said. “I feel like last year was a taste of what I knew I had, what other people saw a glimpse of.”He also did it while so many other wide receivers were cashing in, including teammate Brandin Cooks.“I said, ‘I’m next,’ ” Woods said. “You’re always happy for your teammates and other receivers making money.”Of course, the Rams have so many other pressing issues, that an adjustment to his deal seems unlikely. That’s the danger of signing a long-term deal and then outperforming it. They’re already pumping the brakes on talk about a new deal for quarterback Jared Goff, so Woods is probably going to have to wait a year (or two) for his.

The Dallas Cowboys will have both offensive tackles and two of their top three receivers for a key NFC East meeting with Philadelphia after all four were questionable with injuries.Six-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith is active against the Eagles on Sunday night after missing two games with a sprained ankle. Right tackle La'el Collins is back after missing last week's loss to the previously winless New York Jets with a knee injury.No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper Carlos Hyde Jersey , who caught the winning touchdown pass in overtime against the Eagles to help Dallas win the division title last season, is active after leaving early against the Jets with a thigh injury that he thought had improved enough for him to play.Dallas slot receiver Randall Cobb also is active after sitting against the Jets with a back injury. Cornerback Byron Jones, slowed by a hamstring injury, is active as well. Cornerback Anthony Brown Juan Thornhill white jersey , also battling a hamstring issue, had already been ruled out.Philadelphia cornerback Ronald Darby is returning after missing three games with a hamstring injury.Several other key players for the Eagles had already been ruled out, including left tackle Jason Peters. The nine-time Pro Bowler injured a knee in last week's loss to Minnesota. Rookie Andre Dillard will make his first start in Peters' place.Five other Eagles also had already been declared out: receiver DeSean Jackson (abdominal injury), linebacker Nigel Bradham (ankle) Juan Thornhill Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (foot), cornerback Avonte Maddox (concussion, neck) and running back Darren Sproles (quadriceps).Offensive lineman Nate Herbig is the other inactive player for Philadelphia.The other inactive players for the Cowboys are receiver Devin Smith, linebacker Luke Gifford Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , offensive linemen Adam Redmond and Brandon Knight and defensive linemen Justin Hamilton and Dorance Armstrong. People who live in Florida have enough to worry about at the moment, so the Jaguars are going to adjust their schedule this week so their players can prepare for Hurricane Dorian.With evacuations in their area beginning Monday morning, the Jaguars practiced today and will take Tuesday and Wednesday off. They are scheduled to return to work on Thursday. They generally take Tuesday off and practice Wednesday and Thursday.“We feel good about our plans for the players and the safety for our players, and I think that’s most important Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys 2019 ,” coach Doug Marrone said, via the team’s official website. “We’ve been out in front of this, so we’ve had a lot of conversations with the players. We’ve had a lot of planning.“But there’s always going to be anxiety because you just don’t know.”Marrone said the team is going to monitor the storm to see if they need to make any other adjustments to the schedule in advance of Sunday’s home game.

The Patriots and Titans will work together this offseason."The NFL announced the 2019 preseason schedule on April 9th and we already know that the New England Patriots will host join practices with the Tennessee Titans http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-troy-niklas-jersey , per 24/7’s Allan Bell.The Patriots and Titans will practice in Tennessee during the second week of the preseason. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel used to be a star linebacker for the Patriots, so there’s familiarity between him and New England head coach Bill Belichick. The Titans also boast a roster full of former Patriots, like Dion Lewis Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey , Logan Ryan, Malcolm Butler, Jamil Douglas Womens Phillip Dorsett Jersey , and Darius Kilgo.Joint practices provide an opportunity for players to work against a diverse group of skill sets at a potentially higher level of competition, simply because the environment’s different from practicing against teammates.New England should also be interested in hosting joint practices for the first week of the preseason with the Detroit Lions, although that will also be on the road. The Bills let a 14-point lead slip away on Sunday afternoon Youth Dont’a Hightower Jersey , but they were able to regain their footing in time to outlast the Bengals and improve to 3-0 on the season.The win sets up a Week Three date with another undefeated team in the Patriots. That should be a pretty good test of where the Bills are at this point in the season, although quarterback Josh Allen said the team isn’t going to make too much of facing Tom Brady and the rest of the Patriots this week.“The Patriots are very well coached and they got a guy over there that plays quarterback quite well, you know No. 12. [Maybe] the greatest quarterback of all time Dont’a Hightower Jersey Stitched ,” Allen said, via Syracuse.com. “We understand it’s a tall task but at the same time we’re going to try and stick to what we do. Learn from this game, make adjustments Youth Donald Trump Jerseys , and go out and try to put our best foot forward next week.”The Bills last beat the Patriots in 2016 and last beat them in Buffalo in 2011. Ending those losing streaks would make things a bit more interesting in the AFC East.

NFL teams don’t like participating on  Womens Bo Jackson Jersey , and some critics say the show is getting old and predictable. The league would like to do something about that.That’s why owners and team presidents discussed ways to improve the show during the league meeting in May, according to Albert Breer of SI.com.One potential change: Allowing the NFL to force any team to do the show, meaning the league would always choose a marquee team that has plenty of intrigue at its training camp. Current rules limit the teams that can be forced to do the show, and with teams that have made the playoffs in the last two years exempt, it’s pretty much guaranteed that the show will revolve around a bad team. The NFL may decide to eliminate that rule.Also under consideration is adding more behind-the-scenes programming beyond . One option could be to put NFL Films cameras in the practices and meeting rooms for two teams before they play each other, and to turn the footage into a show that would air after the game.NFL games are already the most-watched programs on American television, but the league would like to develop a bigger audience for its other programming, and there’s potential to develop a bigger audience for behind-the-scenes footage from practices and meetings. The league may start doing more to grow that audience. ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Shortly after being drafted Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , Raiders defensive tackle Maurice Hurst received a phone call from Jon Gruden. The conversation didn’t last long but turned out to be prophetic in several ways.Gruden informed Hurst of the renovation plan for Oakland’s defense that was being mapped out by him and defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and how much they wanted the former Michigan star to be at the hub of that plan. Gruden also didn’t mince words when he explained that he wanted Hurst to be as big of a presence in the locker room as the team hoped he would be on the field.Hurst has managed to do both fairly well, providing a silver lining to a season in which the Raiders defense has otherwise gone nowhere.“He’s grown leaps and bounds,” Guenther said Friday. “We knew we drafted a good player when we took him and he has not disappointed. He’s done a good job in both the run and the pass. He’s been able to push the pocket some on third down, so he’s going to be a great player for us.”Oakland is 26th in total defense behind a pass rush that has generated only 12 sacks through 14 games. Hurst has four of them, the most by a Raiders rookie since Khalil Mack had four in 2014.Whether Hurst can add to his total is uncertain. He has not practiced this week because of a lingering ankle injury that landed him on the inactive list in Week 14.A strong finish to the season, Hurst said, will be key to getting a jump on 2019 as he and fellow rookie P.J. Hall try to form the foundation of the Raiders defensive line.“We’ve done a pretty decent job this year so we just have to try to build on things,” Hurst said. “These last couple of games will be big for us. Just keep developing, have a big offseason and get ready for next year.”The Raiders were fortunate Hurst fell into their laps. A consensus All-American during his senior season with the Wolverines Womens Antonio Brown Jersey , Hurst was projected to be a first-round draft pick until being sent home from the scouting combine after tests revealed a heart condition.Hurst was given medical clearance but it didn’t prevent the other 31 teams from passing on him. When he was selected with the 140th overall pick, the Raiders were widely criticized by several general managers around the league.It’s a gamble that has paid off for Oakland.In addition to leading the Raiders in sacks, Hurst is fourth among all NFL rookie defensive linemen with 31 tackles.Guenther and Gruden both have praised Hurst for his impact in the locker room as well. Hurst, in turn, credits Gruden for giving him an early heads-up of what to expect.“I had a good sense of what was going on and what we had on our roster and what we were trying to build,” Hurst said. “Sometimes you want to take a back seat but that wasn’t really a position I was in. It’s something I’ve taken pride in and what I want to continue to do. He didn’t want me to be a normal rookie.”Notes: CB Daryl Worley (shoulder) missed his second straight day of practice. . CB Gareon Conley (concussion), center Rodney Hudson (ankle/knee) and TE Lee Smith (back) were limited.

On Sunday night Youth Charles Omenihu Jersey , the moon crossed in front of the Earth’s shadow, creating a full and bloody lunar eclipse. For millennia, man has personified the heavens and extrapolated it to the slop we roll around in. On a Sunday that had two overtime championship games, a bizarre no-call, a Kansas City comeback and subsequent devastation, it’s impossible not to. There was something happening that we just don’t understand. SUBSCRIBE BELOW.This week, Matt and BFD discuss the newest Houston Texans news (Seantrel Henderson) and review the 2019 Conference Championship Games. Topics include the no-call, Drew Brees’s future, the Saints’ run defense, Jared Goff play action passes, the Patriots’ game plan, Tom Brady incubating, Kansas City’s comeback, and Patriots-Chiefs ending the only way it could.SUBSCRIBE BELOW.Post whatever questions you have for us below. No matter how intelligent, silly, or trivial they maybe, we will get to them at some point during the show. We are recording at 7:00 p.m. CST tonight, so put your money in the piggy bank before then.

Keep that in mind when you download the episode this week. I’m trying to buy some kombucha.Thanks for staying awhile and listening. Enjoy the show while you do whatever it is that you do. Here’s a crazy thought: The Houston Texans with home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.Yep, the team that began the season 0-3 just might sneak past the Chiefs and Patriots and claim that coveted spot.The Texans have won nine in a row. They’ve done so in all sorts of ways, from strong defense to opportunistic offense to solid special teams to superb coaching.On Sunday, they face Indianapolis (6-6) and can pretty much knock the Colts out of postseason contention with a win.Indianapolis has won three of the past four against the Texans in a series in which the past eight games were decided by seven or fewer points.Should Houston get by the Colts, the remainder of the schedule has visits to the Jets and Eagles and a home finale against Jacksonville. Considering that two-month string of wins, why can’t the Texans run the table?“It’s a small accomplishment White Charles Omenihu Jersey ,” says defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who has justified being the top overall pick in the 2014 draft. “We still haven’t even won the division with winning nine in a row, we have no playoff spot, nothing right now locked up.“So, it’s a small accomplishment, but hopefully it will lead to bigger things for us. We’re playing for much more than just the division right now. We’re trying to play for first, second, third seed, whoever is ahead of us right now.”That would be Kansas City (10-2) and New England (also 9-3). Both have a more testing December.“I think it’s when you start to look ahead, or you start to get overly excited about accomplishments that, not don’t mean anything, but winning nine in a row, winning a division, you take things one day at a time,” J.J. Watt adds.“I think that’s the biggest mentality I’ve taken away from it all is just control what you can control. If you try to start controlling things that you can’t control, then you can get in trouble.The weekend began with Thursday night with Tennessee‘s 30-9 home victory over Jacksonville.Derrick Henry sped and stiff-armed his way to a record-tying 99-yard touchdown run for Tennessee (7-6). Henry tied Tony Dorsett’s 99-yarder on Jan. 3, 1983, for Dallas against Minnesota for the longest TD run in NFL history. Henry set a franchise record with 238 yards on just 16 carries, topping the previous mark of 228 yards set by Chris Johnson in 2009 against yes, the Jaguars. Henry finished with a career-high four TDs, tying Lorenzo White and Hall of Fame running back Earl Campbell for most rushing TDs in a single game in franchise history.Jacksonville dropped to 4-9.New Orleans (10-2) at Tampa Bay (5-7)The Saints take the NFC South with a win or a Carolina loss. They’re eager to get back on the field after their worst performance of 2018, a Thursday night loss at Dallas in which they were overwhelmed by the Cowboys’ defense.Tampa Bay, which has gained more yards on offense than anyone — yes, even New Orleans — won the first meeting to open the season. Then the Saints won their next 10 games.Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston has not turned over the ball since regaining the starting job two weeks ago. In the past three games Whitney Mercilus Jersey , one in relief, Winston has completed 61 of 84 (72.6 percent) with six touchdowns and one interception for a 119.1 rating.Los Angeles Rams (11-1) at Chicago (8-4)The Rams already own the NFC West title. They earn a first-round playoff bye by beating the Bears.This is an intriguing matchup, LA‘s second-ranked offense against Chicago’s No. 4 defense. The Bears are second stingiest against the run, and the Rams’ Todd Gurley leads the NFL in both yards rushing (1,175) and yards from scrimmage (1,649). Chicago’s defense leads the NFL with 21 interceptions and will test Jared Goff.Chicago hopes to have regular quarterback Mitchell Trubisky back from a shoulder injury that cost him two games. He’ll need to watch for Rams DT Aaron Donald, making a strong statement for a second straight NFL Defensive Player of the Year award. He tops the NFL with 16½ sacks, has at least two in three straight games.New England (9-3) at Miami (6-6)A Patriots win — this is one place they don’t like, having lost four of the past five at Miami — means yet another AFC East crown, 10 in a row. Tom Brady has won 12 of his past 13 starts within the division. He’s also ready to establish another NFL record: Brady has 579 career TD passes, including postseason, tied with Peyton Manning for the most.New England also has found a rushing defense, not allowing a 100-yard gainer since Week 3.Miami has been outgained by 1,168 yards and is on pace to break the 1967 team record, yet is in wild-card contention. The Dolphins do rank third with 25 takeaways.Baltimore (7-5) at Kansas City (10-2)Cincinnati (5-7) at Los Angeles Chargers (9-3)Pittsburgh (7-4-1) at Oakland (2-10)Two AFC division races involved here.The Ravens have crept within a half-game of the Steelers in the North, but have a massive challenge at KC while Pittsburgh shouldn’t struggle much at lowly Oakland.Beating the high-powered Chiefs at Arrowhead calls for a monstrous defensive showing, and Baltimore has the top-ranked D. It also has a clock-killing run game with rookie Lamar Jackson at QB: The Ravens have had at least 200 yards rushing in three straight weeks.Still, Kansas City is 5-0 at home and leads the league in scoring at 37 points per game. Patrick Mahomes has a league-leading 41 TD passes and 43 throws of 25-plus yards.Kansas City, which gets a playoff berth with a win, can’t afford a stumble with the Chargers one game back; they meet next Thursday night. With Cincinnati in a rugged, injury-caused slump, LA could romp Sunday.The Chargers have a few complicated ways of getting at least a wild card this week. Philip Rivers has thrown two or more TDs in each of his first 12 games, tied for the third-longest streak to begin a season in NFL history.Rivers has 10 TDs and six INTs in six games against the Bengals, who have won four straight meetings in the regular season.The Raiders have won the past three home games in this series since losing in 1995 and the Steelers are 3-8 all time in Oakland. Still Deshaun Watson Jersey , unless they hand things to the Raiders, they should win even without standout RB James Conner (ankle).Minnesota (6-5-1) at Seattle (7-5), Monday nightWhoever emerges here has an inside track to a wild-card berth, though the Vikings still think they can grab the NFC North title.Seattle is exceptional in prime time: 24-5-1 since 2010. Russell Wilson has 29 touchdown passes and five interceptions through 12 games. He has thrown at least two touchdowns in eight straight outings and has 16 touchdowns and two interceptions in Monday night games. Plus, the Seahawks are leading the NFL averaging 148.8 yards per game rushing.But Seattle has been inconsistent defending the pass, and Kirk Cousins tops the league with 350 completions. Adam Thielen leads the NFL with 98 catches, is second in yards with 1,166, and tied for fifth in TDs with nine. Thielen and Stefon Diggs are the only pair of teammates in the NFC with 80 or more receptions.Philadelphia (6-6) at Dallas (7-5)A Cowboys victory gives them control of the NFC East; they won at Philly earlier this season. Dallas has won four straight and comes off that impressive victory against the Saints, followed by a nice rest.Eagles TE Zach Ertz has already established a single-season franchise record with 93 receptions He’s 18 away from breaking Jason Witten’s NFL record for TEs.New York Giants (4-8) at Washington (6-6)Remember Mark Sanchez? He’s now the Redskins‘ starter with both Alex Smith and Colt McCoy out with broken legs. It’s his first start since 2015, and the Redskins are a banged-up bunch everywhere.New York, which lost star safety Landon Collins (shoulder) for the rest of the season, has won three of four since its bye. RB Saquon Barkley and WR Odell Beckham Jr., are having big years despite a leaky offensive line.Atlanta (4-8) at Green Bay (4-7-1)Most interesting story line is Joe Philbin taking over as Packers coach and calling plays for the first time in his pro career. Aaron Rodgers has thrown a franchise-record 336 attempts without an interception, trailing only Brady (358 in 2010-11) for the longest such stretch in league history.Linebacker Deion Jones had a career-high 15 tackles and one sack last week, returning after missing 10 games while injured. But the Atlanta defense is 31st against third downs (51 percent).Denver (6-6) at San Francisco (2-10)The Broncos have awakened with three consecutive victories. But they have one road win in the past 30 seasons vs. the 49ers. They lost top wideout Emmanuel Sanders in practice this week with a torn Achilles tendon.San Francisco’s five takeaways are the fewest through 12 games since at least 1940. The previous low was seven for Jacksonville in 2016.Carolina (6-6) at Cleveland (4-7-1)A four-game slide has seriously endangered the Panthers‘ playoff chances. Their passing game has struggled and now Cam Newton has a sore right shoulder. He was picked off four times last week.But they’re averaging 140.8 rushing yards per game, only behind Seattle’s 148.8.Coach Ron Rivera fired D-line coach Brady Hoke and assistant secondary/cornerbacks coach Jeff Imamura.Top overall draft pick Baker Mayfield threw three interceptions in the first half in a loss at Houston to dampen some of the enthusiasm in Cleveland. The Browns lead the AFC with 27 takeaways.New York Jets (3-9) at Buffalo (4-8)It looks as if Sam Darnold is recovered from his strained right foot, setting up a matchup with fellow first-round selection Josh Allen among rookie QB prospects.Darnold has a 3-6 record and has thrown a league-high 14 interceptions. Allen has 391 yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions, and 234 yards rushing and a TD in his past two games since missing four with a sprained right throwing elbow.Detroit (4-8) at Arizona (3-9)The Lions have lost eight straight at Arizona, their last win coming in 1993. Plus, Detroit is 0-3 against the NFC West this season.Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald needs one catch to move ahead of Jerry Rice for the most receptions for one team in NFL history. Fitzgerald needs one TD catch to match Antonio Gates for sixth on the career list.

Detroit's much-anticipated defensive front has looked flat so far this season.This was supposed to be a strength for the Lions Matthew Stafford Jersey , who added defensive linemen Trey Flowers and Mike Daniels in the offseason and traded for Damon Harrison last year. The results have been decidedly mixed, and last weekend, Detroit struggled to stop the run and rush the passer in a 42-30 loss to Minnesota.The Lions have played some tough opponents, and their defensive numbers aren't good: They've allowed 429 yards per game, with opponents having success both on the ground and through the air."I thought that it was probably closer than where it was yesterday," coach Matt Patricia said Monday. "I thought yesterday was not where it has been in the past. I think I definitely saw that on tape. That's why I wanted to go back today and make sure that I was teaching it again, to make sure that I didn't leave anything out from that aspect through the course of this week that caused us not to play up to some of the technique that we had been doing at this point."The Lions have faced a tough slate of quarterbacks so far. Their last five games have been against Phillip Rivers, Carson Wentz, Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers and Kirk Cousins. Their losses to Kansas City and Green Bay were close, but there were few silver linings at home against the Vikings.Even amid the excitement of a revamped defensive line Darius Slay Jersey , the Lions were dealing with injuries as early as training camp, when Flowers and Harrison missed time. That may have contributed to some of the team's problems."That is one of the things I talk about all the time, how important training camp is — those reps in training camp. The cumulative amount of reps that we get in camp far outweigh the Wednesdays or every other Wednesday kind of repetition that we get," Patricia said. "It makes it really difficult to catch up and unfortunately, we have to do it every single way we can possible."WHAT'S WORKINGWith the exception of a puzzling fourth-down play in the fourth quarter, the offense seemed sharp against the Vikings. Matthew Stafford threw for 364 yards and four touchdowns, and the team's only turnover came late, when the Lions were rushing to try to make up a 12-point deficit.WHAT NEEDS HELPThe defensive line has fallen short of expectations, but the whole defense has room for improvement. Minnesota punted only twice Sunday and had 32 first downs.STOCK UPMarvin Jones had 10 catches for 93 yards and four touchdowns. Jones was an effective target in the red zone — all of his TDs were from 16 yards or fewer.STOCK DOWNHarrison spoke at length Monday and put some of the blame on himself for Detroit's struggles up front. The Lions are allowing 139 yards per game on the ground, compared to 110 last season."It really starts with me up front," Harrison said. "I have to do a better job in the middle Marvin Jones Jersey , and getting some of those plays that I'm used to making, that I'm not making this year. It's a lot of things that I can blame it on, but the only thing that I can do at the end of the day is just throw effort at it during the practice week and try to perform on Sunday."INJUREDRunning back Kerryon Johnson (knee) and cornerback Darius Slay (hamstring) were injured during the game and did not return. Patricia addressed Johnson's status Monday, but did not offer much in the way of new information."I know he met with the doctors this morning, we rolled into a team meeting, and then went into offensive and defensive meetings, so I'll get together with them," Patricia said. "I saw him, and he said he was fine, but it wasn't really a deep conversation."KEY NUMBER1 — The number of sacks for Flowers so far this season, and the numbers of tackles for Daniels Kerryon Johnson Jersey , who has missed three games.NEXT STEPSThe schedule appears to ease up a bit.

HockensonChristopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsThe patrons inside the Buffalo Bills war room were holding their breath early Thursday night. The Detroit Lions were on the clock with the eighth overall pick and the Bills were up next. With the New York Giants having made a surprising pick in Duke quarterback Daniel Jones, the board had fallen favorably for both teams. But the Bills were holding out hope for one player in particular.The Bills released a behind-the-scenes video of their war room during draft weekend, and we can see their real-time reactions when the Lions decided to select Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson (at the 1:00 mark): Bills general manager Brandon Beane gave a hefty fist bump, as he exclaimed “Yes!” and the war room crowd gave a tepid round of applause.“When Detroit was on the clock, we had good grades on a few guys, but Ed (Oliver) was the highest guy on our board, and the draft room was really excited when the pick was in,” Beane explained afterwards. This is interesting for a few reasons. Mainly, the Bills had tight end as one of their biggest needs in the draft, so Hockenson would’ve made sense for them. However Amani Oruwariye Detroit Lions Jersey , though they clearly favored Ed Oliver. Later in the fourth round, the Bills would trade up to get their tight end: Ole Miss’ Dawson Knox. Of course, this doesn’t mean the Lions were wrong or the Bills were right in their priorities. That won’t be decided until years from now. Regardless, we now know based on the comments of Lions general manager Bob Quinn that an undersized prospect like Ed Oliver probably wasn’t as high on their boards as other team’s boards, considering Detroit’s scheme calls for bigger, bulkier players. That being said, you have to wonder if Buffalo simply thought the tight end position wasn’t worthy of a top-10 pick and was a need they could address later in a somewhat deep tight end class. Either way, this is a fascinating look into how Thursday unfolded. Let’s hope this becomes a trend for teams to be this transparent (the Colts made a similar video, too).

Cincinnati has made six major acquisitions through the onset of free agency. Where does that leave them for the draft?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABreaking NewsKeep track of the 2019 Bengals draft脳NFL Free AgencyThe Orange & Black InsiderBengals NewsWhat are the Bengals’ most pressing positional needs after recent roster moves?New http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-joe-mixon-jersey ,186commentsCincinnati has made six major acquisitions through the onset of free agency. Where does that leave them for the draft?EDTShareTweetShareShareWhat are the Bengals’ most pressing positional needs after recent roster moves?For a team that hasn’t truly made any splash free agency signings, it’s been a busy first week-plus of free agency for the Cincinnati Bengals. Whether it’s in roster additions, subtractions or in visits with prospective signees, there has been a lot of headline news from the club to begin the month of March. Tyler Eifert, C.J. Uzomah, Bobby Hart, Preston Brown, John Miller and B.W. Webb have all been signed to club for starting or heavy rotational roles going forward. While some fans disagree with the club’s stance, the Bengals seem to think that these moves are the answer for a number of positional question marks in 2019. Regardless, part of the plan in making these moves resides opening up the draft. The consensus opinion from draftniks when it came to the Bengals is that they desperately needed help at linebacker, offensive tackle and offensive guard. Has that changed in the wake of these moves?Offensive lineMost mock drafts attached to the Cincinnati Bengals before the onset of free agency had them linked to Florida’s Jawaan Taylor, Oklahoma’s Cody Ford and/or Alabama’s Jonah Williams. The team appears committed to Cordy Glenn for the foreseeable future on the left side, but there was a gaping hole on the right before the frenzy started last Monday. Well, Hart appears to be the guy the team is leaning upon in 2019, so maybe right tackle isn’t what they want at No. 11. Miller also seems to bring an upgrade at right guard Jessie Bates III Jersey White , so a swing guy like Ford seems like a luxury as well. Not to mention the fact that the team already made two major moves along the offensive line in 2018 in the trade for Glenn and using a first round pick on Billy Price.Still, Glenn has just two years left on his deal before becoming a free agent, while Hart still comes with some major question marks. The team could still look at offensive line early on, but it will for sure be a wait-and-learn situation for the rookie.LinebackerIf it wasn’t one of those big offensive linemen being mocked to the Bengals, it was one of the Devin’s at the linebacker position. Devin White of LSU is the consensus top linebacker in the class, while Devin Bush of Michigan is flying up boards after a great NFL Combine showing. Still, both would anchor the middle, which is the spot that the team has committed to Brown. Players at the position can be a little more fluid and flexible than most, in terms of moving them around outside of their natural position and the Bengals have shown a propensity to move guys around before in the group (i.e. Rey Maualuga and Vontaze Burfict).With Burfict now on the Raiders and Brown being a two-down linebacker at the max, the team still needs help at the group. Did we mention that the team’s defense was dead-last in overall defense and against the pass, as well as 29th against the run last year?QuarterbackThe dark horse for an early pick by the Bengals is at quarterback. Cincinnati has been clear about their commitment to Andy Dalton for 2019, but they could look to the future if a guy they like falls their way. At a minimum, another developmental guy behind Dalton is needed. Jeff Driskel has some talent, but it didn’t translate on the field last year. He wasn’t placed into the best position without Eifert, A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd for varying amounts of time Womens Randy Bullock Jersey , but Taylor will probably want to take on a project of his own early in his head coaching tenure. Other positionsWide receiver is at a crossroads with Green and Boyd both entering contract years, as well as some now-quelled trade rumors surrounding John Ross. The defensive line could use another rotational piece and there is some good depth in this year’s class on that front. Cincinnati also likes their first round corners, so could that be the route? After all, they appear to be losing Darqueze Dennard, and we’re not sure about the long-term value of Dre Kirkpatrick on his current deal. What do you think about the team’s positional needs at the moment? CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick looked around the locker room on the first day of the Bengals‘ voluntary workouts and noted that not all that much had changed.“Certain new faces, but it’s still kind of the same team,” Kirkpatrick said.A third straight losing season prompted the Bengals to finally end coach Marvin Lewis’ run at 16 seasons without a playoff victory. Zac Taylor and a youthful coaching staff were brought aboard and handed a team closely resembling the one that finished at the bottom of the AFC North last season.The draft will be an important chance to fill some big holes overall, and maybe even pull a big surprise in the first round when the Bengals pick No. 11 overall.Cincinnati’s needs are obvious. With Vontaze Burfict gone after a subpar season, the Bengals have to get a starting linebacker. They also could use an offensive tackle and a defensive end early in the draft. At some point, they’ll get a tight end, a running back and yes, another quarterback for depth behind Andy Dalton, who’s entering his ninth season.Unless the Bengals pull a surprise and take a quarterback in the first round, their draft will be more about filling holes than going in a different direction with the roster. Most of the changes will be in the playbooks, not on the depth chart.“We’re going on a new journey Jordan Evans Jersey ,” Kirkpatrick said.Some things to watch with the Bengals during the three days of the draft:QB INTRIGUEWhen Lewis became head coach in 2003, the Bengals took Carson Palmer first overall and let him learn behind Jon Kitna for a season. While it’s unlikely the Bengals will have a chance for one of the top quarterbacks at No. 11, it will be interesting to see what owner Mike Brown decides if, say, Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins is still available at that spot. Most likely, the Bengals will end up taking a quarterback on the third day of the draft for depth behind Dalton and Jeff Driskel.BURFICT’S REPLACEMENTCincinnati’s most noteworthy offseason move was releasing its most volatile player. Burfict had another suspension, more injuries and a subpar seventh season. Preston Brown and Nick Vigil return, but the Bengals need another linebacker.Either LSU’s Devin White or Michigan’s Devin Bush could move into a starting role immediately, and at least one of them will likely be available at the No. 11 pick.OH THAT LINEThe Bengals gave right tackle Bobby Hart a three-year deal and added guard John Miller from the Bills, but the offensive line still needs work. They’ll look for a tackle in the early rounds. They’re also in the market for another defensive end. The line struggled to get consistent pressure last season, when the defense finished among the worst in franchise history .TIGHT END TIPPING POINTThe Bengals have been at their best offensively when Tyler Eifert is healthy. He set a club record for tight ends with 13 touchdown catches in 2015, the most recent time Cincinnati reached the playoffs. He’s been limited to 14 games the past three years by various back and ankle injuries.Eifert returns on a one-year deal, and C.J. Uzomah got a three-year deal after leading Cincinnati’s tight ends last season. The Bengals will add another tight end at some point.TAYLOR’S TIMEThe Bengals lean heavily on their coaching staff to scout draft picks. They had to assemble a coaching staff late because Taylor was with the Rams through the Super Bowl. The draft will provide some insights into how the new coaching staff evaluates players and how it’s moving ahead with new coordinators on both offense and defense.

All the additions (and subtractions) the Rams have made through free agency and the draft suggest they’re serious about upgrading their run defense." 2019 Los Angeles Rams OffseasonWhat was the theme of the Los Angeles Rams’ 2019 offseason? Improve the run defenseNew Kurt Warner Jersey ,37commentsAll the additions (and subtractions) the Rams have made through free agency and the draft suggest they’re serious about upgrading their run defense.CDTAfter looking at the offseason in it’s entirety, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Los Angeles Rams have taken a serious interest and intrigue into improving the run defense.In 2018, the Rams allowed 116.3 rushing yards per game (18th in the league) and 4.8 yards-per-carry (27th in the league). The first value (YPG) isn’t terrible per se, but it’s also not extremely valuable because of how potent the Rams’ offense was. When a team is consistently behind by two or three scores, they’ll obviously abandon the run and that’s why the YPC metric is more appropriate when evaluating a run defense (with other stats to boot). The Rams were nearly dead last in that regard.So what did they do in the 2019 offseason?They revamped the defense. They let NT Ndamukong Suh walk in free agency and replaced him with fourth-round pick Greg Gaines from Washington. Gaines is a noted run-stopping specialist who figures to get plenty of playing time sandwiched between DT’s Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.They signed OLB Clay Matthews in free agency, and though Clay isn’t the player he once was, he still holds value by way of leadership Joe Namath Jersey , effort, and the ability to compete in the run game. Matthews’ addition slides former starter Samson Ebukam to the bench. For comparisons sake, Matthews has averaged 0.85 tackles-for-loss per game in his career, Ebukam only 0.25 per game. Matthews is a clear upgrade all the way around, but especially as a run defender.The Rams replaced FS Lamarcus Joyner with veteran FS Eric Weddle who they signed via free agency. The signing wasn’t some massive upgrade in the run department per se, but it does allow the Rams to feel more comfortable and versatile allowing either Weddle or incumbent SS John Johnson III to play more freely near the line of scrimmage. Weddle is a football player who reads coverage's well, has a high football IQ Cooper Kupp Jersey , and can be trusted to survey the field properly on the backend. That will allow Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips more freedom to call run blitzes without leaving the Rams defense as vulnerable as it was last season on the backend.Arguably the biggest addition will be inserting fifth-round rookie draft pick in 2018 ILB Micah Kiser into the lineup. The Rams decided to cut Mark Barron prior to free agency, and though that was a tough decision, it’s one you can’t disagree with. Barron was once a ferocious, tough, and dependable player regardless of position. The past two seasons have been injury-riddled and far too costly, making his release inevitable. Barron was being phased out of the defense in 2018 as he was replaced by SS Marqui Christian on third downs with Christian logging over 350+ snaps in his role. Kiser — who will now replace Barron at inside linebacker — is built like a brinks truck, and he excels at two things: stuffing the run and blitzing quarterbacks. I even wrote an article last year about Kiser potentially replacing Barron Todd Gurley II Jersey , and though it never came to fruition, it very well could have. Kiser’s ability to play in coverage is a major unknown at this point, but Barron didn’t offer anything as a coverage player anymore either, so Kiser should be a welcomed addition by way of his improved play against the run and versatility to blitz.All of that brings me to my last point: inside linebackers being replaced by safeties? Perfect, that’s where newly-drafted second-round pick S Taylor Rapp comes into play. Rapp wont see starters minutes because of the solid starting duo the Rams already possess in Johnson and Weddle, but he can certainly replace the 400+ snaps that Marqui Christian and Blake Countess offered the Rams in 2018. Rapp has the potential to sub in for Kiser on passing downs, making a major impact as a defender on limited snaps.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="IwrSHp">Now that the 2019 offseason has essentially come to an end Aaron Donald Jersey , we can fully evaluate the Rams’ plan from the start. And in my opinion, the priority was to fix the effectiveness in stopping the run. Can Hodge unseat Williams? Who will start at NT?

Nose TackleSebastian Joseph-Day v. Greg GainesI’ll take this one on the chin. I undersold Gaines before seeing him on the field and he looks to be every bit the NT the Rams thought he’d be. He might not have won the starting NT gig yet, but he seems to be well on his way to a timeshare with Joseph-Day at the very least.Wide ReceiverKhaDarel Hodge v. Mike ThomasWhile stats might not back it up, Hodge showed out against the Raiders and Thomas would do well to take notice. Thomas hasn’t done much with his roster slot since being drafted while Hodge has scarcely looked bad when given the opportunity.CornerbackKevin Peterson v. Darious WilliamsI’ll preface this by saying both Peterson and Williams could lose this battle. Both played well against the Raiders and both are trying to convince the Rams to carry a 6th CB. Those decisions usually imply some sort of special teams prowess, so it might suit these youngsters to get comfortable in the special team room with John Fassel.

Rules changes aimed at safety have made kickoff returns almost a rarity in the NFL. Punters have gotten better each year at placing their kicks in spots that make it harder and harder to run back.Despite all that’s stacked up against them http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/authentic-reshad-jones-jersey , there are still a few returners who can turn the sometimes mundane kicking plays into breathtaking ones.Miami’s Jakeem Grant beat out Kansas City‘s Tyreek Hill as the NFL’s top returner in 2018 in voting released Friday by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press.Grant received the honor the same week he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a leg injury.“Grant has a touchdown on a punt return and a kickoff return. Such a distinction is almost extinct thanks to the rule changes,” said Dallas-based Schuyler Dixon.Grant has excelled as an all-around returner, ranking fourth in kick return average (29.7 yards) and first on punts (16.3) before his injury. Only six players have enough returns to qualify for the league leaders in both categories.The return game is growing less important by the year. Nearly two-thirds (64 percent) of all kickoffs have resulted in touchbacks, the most in NFL history, and there have been fewer punt returns through 12 weeks than at any point since the merger. Grant has two of the league’s seven return touchdowns so far this season, the fewest through 12 weeks in a non-strike year and down from a high of 31 at this point just 11 years ago.Hill, who returned a punt for a score in Week 1, received five first-place votes to the four for Grant, even though he is not used on kicks and has just 17 punt returns as he plays a bigger role on offense.“Punts against the Chiefs are the wrong time for a bathroom break, with Hill and his five career return touchdowns in three NFL seasons waiting to catch them,” Minneapolis-based Dave Campbell said. “Wait until the commercial.”More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins, veteran LB Mike Hull agree to terms on 1-year contractThe next stop: Ryan Fitzpatrick moves into starting QB role with Dolphins, for nowDolphins sign former Jaguars guard-center Chris ReedDolphins sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to two-year, $11 million dealEnd of the road: Dolphins trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for picksIn all, 21 players received at least one vote Womens Jerome Baker Jersey , with only Grant, Hill, Andre Roberts of the Jets and New England’s Cordarrelle Patterson appearing on all 10 ballots.Like Grant, Roberts is one of the handful of players to excel at both kicks and punts and finished third, one spot ahead of Patterson.“Roberts has been one of the few bright spots this season for a struggling Jets team,” New York-based Dennis Waszak said. “He has re-established himself as a dangerous dual threat in the return game, highlighted by a 78-yard punt return for a TD. Roberts also leads the NFL with three punt returns of 40 or more yards.”The other first-place vote went to Tennessee’s kick return specialist Darius Jennings, who ranked fifth overall and also has a return for a score.“Who? Yes, someone who came into the NFL as a rookie free agent out of Virginia and now is with his fourth different team is leading the league, averaging 34.8 yards per kickoff return,” said Nashville-based Teresa Walker, who voted Jennings first.Rounding out the top 10 were Chicago’s Tarik Cohen, Desmond King of the Chargers, Cincinnati’s Alex Erickson, Kansas City’s kick returner Tremon Smith Stephone Anthony Jersey , and JoJo Natson of the Rams.“Almost as exciting a player as Tyreek Hill, Cohen will get more touches on offense as his career moves along,” New York-based Barry Wilner said of Cohen, who was named on nine ballots. “That’s kind of disappointing because it means fewer opportunities to show his stuff on returns.”___The rankings:1. Jakeem Grant, Dolphins2. Tyreek Hill, Chiefs3. Andre Roberts, Jets4. Cordarrelle Patterson, Patriots5. Darius Jennings, Titans6. Tarik Cohen, Bears7. Desmond King, Chargers8. Alex Erickson, Bengals9. Tremon Smith, Chiefs10. JoJo Natson, Rams With three offensive linemen hurt, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was feeling the heat Monday.From his critics http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/authentic-t.j.-mcdonald-jersey , that is.Tannehill took a pounding in the Dolphins’ latest defeat Sunday at Cincinnati, and then caught plenty of blame for his team’s second ugly loss in a row. Coach Adam Gase, ever loyal to Tannehill, mounted a modest defense by noting problems with pass protection.“I don’t think he was horrible,” Gase said. “When a (teammate) gets beat so fast he can’t defend himself unless he’s Houdini, not many guys are getting away.”The Dolphins are 3-2 and tied with New England for the AFC East lead, but it hardly feels that way. In the past two weeks they’ve lost at the Patriots 38-7 and blown a 17-point lead at Cincinnati , leaving Gase forced to address the question of whether Tannehill remains his starting quarterback (the answer was yes).Tannehill took responsibility for the Dolphins’ collapse Sunday, when they were outscored 27-0 by the Bengals in the final 21 minutes left and lost 27-17. His ill-advised pass under pressure was intercepted and returned for a touchdown, and a strip sack produced Cincinnati’s final score.“It all started with the turnovers,” Tannehill said. “That’s on me.”In Tannehill’s defense, he was hit 11 times in the second half. Protection by Miami’s injury-riddled line disappeared after left tackle Laremy Tunsil was sidelined with a concussion.This season’s offensive line was expected to be the best Tannehill has played behind, but instead the perennial problem of poor pass protection persists. The Dolphins lost left guard Josh Sitton and center Daniel Kilgore to earlier season-ending injuries.“Anytime starters go down, it’s hard,” Tannehill said.When Miami was 3-0 Womens Kenny Stills Jersey , Tannehill had a quarterback rating of 121.8. But in the past two games it’s 54.0, with one touchdown pass, four turnovers and five sacks. He has struggled mostly on third down and late in the game, a career-long pattern.No letup in pass pressure is likely this week, when the Dolphins face the Chicago Bears (3-1) and Pro Bowl end Khalil Mack, who has at least one sack and at least one forced fumble in every game.How will the Dolphins slow Mack down?“You’re not going to slow him down,” Gase said.Sam Young flopped as Tunsil’s replacement in Cincinnati. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said the Dolphins missed Tunsil, especially because they left Young in one-on-one situations.“It makes a difference when you lose a tackle at this level of football,” Lewis said. “And they didn’t seem to want to help the guy when they left the guy out there. Our guys did a nice job. We had blood in the water, and we went after it.”Gase said he’ll re-evaluate the line this week and make “a couple of decisions” regarding who plays where.“We’ll figure it out,” Gase said. “That’s what we do. They’re not going to stop the season. We’re going to play next week no matter how many guys we’ve got.”___

ATLANTA (AP) — If you’re on the lookout for Super Bowl tickets Womens David Andrews Jersey , be prepared to fork over several thousand dollars.But if you make it through the gates, here’s a bit of good news for your wallet.A hot dog can be had for a couple of bucks. A slice of pizza will set you back a mere $3.Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which made waves in the sports industry by becoming the first facility to introduce so-called “fan first” pricing at its concession stands, is keeping those budget items on the menu for the biggest event in its short history — Sunday’s NFL title game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.“It’s what you would want if you went with your family to a sporting event,” said Scott Jenkins, the stadium’s general manager. “It’s good food, and it’s at a fair price.”So, if your stomach is growling but your bank account is light, consider a pretzel or popcorn. Like the hot dog, each of those stadium staples is just $2. For that same price, you can wash it all down with a bottle of water or a soft drink that comes with free refills. If you’re in the mood for something stronger, a domestic beer checks in at $5.“When I’ve been around, scouting out big events, the prices are high and they go higher,” Jenkins said. “We made it clear when we bid that our prices were fan first, and we’re keeping them for the Super Bowl.”The $1.5 billion stadium, which opened less than two years ago and is best known for a complex retractable roof that opens and closes like a camera lens http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-steve-grogan-jersey , is also looking to make a Super splash with some of its higher-priced food items.Especially those that show off the South’s culinary heritage.A hefty order of chicken and waffles, accompanied by sorghum butter, creamy cole slaw and sweet pickles, checks in at $12. But the item likely to make the biggest splash with fans is the “C.O.S.” — the Closed On Sunday chicken sandwich. That is renowned chef Kevin Gillespie’s take on an Atlanta staple, the Chick-fil-A sandwich.While the $14 price tag might sound a bit hefty compared to some of those aforementioned budget items — and certainly to a Chick-fil-A offering — it’ll probably seem worth it when you’ve finished off a fried chicken breast (sorry, the seasoning is a closely guarded secret) lathered in spicy pickled mayonnaise and served between two honey butter buns.“We’ve taken our record-setting day, the most we’ve ever sold, and we’ve doubled that,” said Gillespie, who also runs two of metro Atlanta most acclaimed restaurants. “We’ll see if we run out again on Super Bowl Sunday.”There’s actually a Chick-fil-A stand within Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but as everyone in this part of the country certainly knows: the fast-food restaurant is closed on Sundays (hence the name of Gillespie’s creation).Yep, even on Super Bowl Sunday.That spot will be occupied by another vendor, so Gillespie has the big game’s chicken sandwich spotlight all to himself.“We feel like a lot of folks have probably read about this stuff, so we want them to have a chance to taste it,” he said. “We decided to stick with the same menu, stick with the exact same pricing, don’t turn it up just because it’s the Super Bowl. We’re pretty pumped about it. We think we’re going to have a pretty busy day on Sunday.”The Mercedes-Benz cooks also came up with several items to honor the Super Bowl teams.The “L.A. Chicharron Dog” is an homage to the team from La La Land — a hot dog covered with pinto beans Youth Sony Michel Jerseys , jalapenos, garlic, roasted poblano pepper strips, cotija cheese, tajin-seasoned chicharrones (essentially, fried pork rinds) and cilantro. Not exactly for the faint of heart (or anyone with heart issues).Speaking of an angioplasty waiting to happen, the offering for the AFC champion Patriots is the “N.E. Beantown Frank,” which is covered with northern beans, maple syrup, Nueske’s bacon and green onions.“This is us playing in the kitchen,” said Matt Cooper, the executive chef at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. “Once we saw the teams that were playing in the Super Bowl, all us chefs got together and came up with some ideas for New England and LA.”His favorite?“I’m going to lean toward LA,” Cooper said. “That’s where I’m originally from.”On the drink side, there’s the PaLomA (yes, the “L” and the “A” are capitalized for obvious reasons), a libation comprised of tequila Sony Michel Jerseys Stitched , ruby red grapefruit, soda water and a blood orange wedge. Patriot fans might prefer to opt for the New Englander — vodka, cranberry and soda water adorned with a lime wedge.Much like the teams that will be looking to claim a title on the field, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is eager to grab a prize of its own in the kitchen.The champion of Super Bowl stadium food.“We have a lot of eyes on us,” Cooper said. “It’s going to be a fun one.” Only a few minutes into the legal tampering period, a deal was reported."In 2013, the NFL introduced the legal tampering period: the three-day window leading up to free agency allowed players about to hit the open market to enter contract negotiations with all of the league’s clubs, not just the ones still holding their rights until the official start of the new league year. The goal of creating this window was to crack down on illegal tampering taking place — and it looks as if it had another effect as well.Contracts get negotiated in a record time now, with the four-year, $66 million dollar deal signed by Trent Brown as the latest example. Per rule, the Oakland Raiders were not allowed to enter contract negotiations with Brown — whose deal with the New England Patriots does not expire until Wednesday, March 13, 4:00 p.m. ET — until today at noon Eastern. That is when the aforementioned legal tampering window opened.Only nine minutes later, however, his camp and the Raiders have apparently already gone over all the details of the record-breaking deal that includes $37.5 million in guarantees and makes Brown the highest-paid offensive tackle in the league on a per-year basis: at 12:09 p.m. ET, ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the report that Brown will sign a deal with Oakland once his old one with the Patriots has expired in two days.Considering that NFL contracts have dozens of pages that cover everything from signing bonuses to injury stipulations, this is an impressive feature. Or could it be that — Gasp! — the contract was already worked on and basically finalized before the legal tampering window even opened earlier today? Against the rules agreed upon by all of the NFL’s teams? Is such a thing possible?! Yes Trey Flowers Jersey , yes it is.To leave the realm of sarcastic speculation, the NFL’s legal tampering period is a fine theoretical idea that appears to have little actual meaning to the clubs. While contracts still cannot be officially signed until the start of the new league year, the scramble for the best players about to hit the market does not suddenly start at 12:00 p.m. ET when clubs are permitted to start negotiating with free agents to be.The NFL is not the rush for land portrayed in movies such as 1992’s Far and Away, but rather a process that has been established for years — one that effectively heats up at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. While teams are not yet allowed to enter negotiations at this point, it would be naive to think that they are not at least trying to get a feel for certain players and how their markets will develop.Trent Brown is a perfect example for this: the Patriots likely knew that he will be gone, while the Raiders were able to establish themselves as the front-runners and eventual winners of the sweepstakes. Could it be that Brown and Oakland’s front office worked out a deal in only nine minutes? Well, yes, but not one as massive as an NFL contract — especially with other teams in the market for starting-caliber tackles as well.Ultimately, Brown’s soon-to-become official contract with the Raiders shows us one thing: the NFL’s legal tampering period is a nice idea in theory, but one that hardly has any meaning in the real world of professional football. Teams negotiate either way. But since all of the organizations play under the same fuzzy set of rules, it seems to be okay... that is until the Patriots somehow find a way to take advantage of it, right?

They say the best NFL teams are home grown. That you build the team and cultivate it over time. There are few instances that better fit that description than the Vikings defense.“Well Womens Derek Carr Jersey , I’m amazed by the continuity they have on defense,” Gruden said of the Vikings.“It’s kind of like a 1975 or 1980 team.They’ve been together, playing together at every level in the same system, which is uncommon.”How much continuity are we talking? The average time with the team for their 11 starters is six years. The newest starter has been on the team three years. That’s either Ben Gedeon or Eric Wilson. depending on which of them starts t linebacker Sunday. Thelongest tenured is Everson Griffen with ten years on the team. Every other starter has been with the team between 5 and 8 years. That’s insane.That is incredible continuity. And it’s the reason why Mike Zimmer’s defense in Minnesota has been in the top ten in points allowed for five straight years.“They don’t make mistakes, they don’t screw around on defense,” Gruden continued. “They’re really good Womens Antonio Brown Jersey , man. Really good. And it’s amazing that they’ve had that continuity, I don’t know how they’ve done that but they are challenging.”That isn’t just about players knowing the system from running it for so long. It’s also about knowing how to scout talent. Ten of the team’s eleven starters are original Vikings. The only guy who isn’t is veteran defensive tackle Linval Joseph who started his career with the Giants and who is in his sixth season with the team.“They have had a number of players that they have drafted that they have been able to keep on their team and are in their second contracts. That’s very rare,” said Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson. “They’ve been able to maintain continuity in terms of personnel and he’s maintained continuity in terms of scheme being there, so certainly a challenge for us.”All told, there are only five defensive starters who weren’t on the team from the moment head coach Mike Zimmer took over. And four of them came in his second season as head coach. I guess when you find players who fit your scheme, you keep them.It’s the reason Paul Guenther — a Zimmer protege — makes sure he has veterans on his defense every season who know his scheme. Last year it was Reggie Nelson and Leon Hall. This year it’s middle linebacker Vontaze Burfict.Guenther needs all the help he can get from players who know his scheme. Though with as bad as the defense was last season Antonio Brown Jersey White , upgrades were needed. He has four newcomers starting for the team from last season as he heads to Minnesota to face his mentor.

HOUSTON (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have done a great job of protecting Baker Mayfield recently Jordan Thomas Jersey , and have the longest active streak in the NFL by not allowing a sack in 125 snaps.Things will get more difficult for the Browns (4-6-1) on Sunday when they visit the Houston Texans (8-3) and their defense led by pass-rushing stars J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. Watt is tied for second in the NFL with 11 1/2 sacks and has 19 quarterback hits, and Clowney has seven sacks and 15 quarterback hits.“I have a job to do and that’s my job to go out there and hopefully end that streak,” Watt said. “They’ve obviously been doing a good job. It’s going to be a good battle.”Mayfield, who hasn’t been sacked in two games, said he’s watched Watt play since the quarterback was in high school and knows he’ll have to account for him and Clowney on every play.“I have to get it out very quick,” Mayfield said. “They have two of the best defensive ends in the league. That is not discrediting any of the other guys, but they are talented. The emphasis has to be on getting the ball out, which we have been trying to do these past weeks. We have to keep doing it.”The Texans know the key to stretching their franchise-record winning streak to nine games will be slowing down Mayfield, the top overall pick in this year’s draft. Mayfield has 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight starts this season and is coming off a season-best four touchdown performance in Cleveland’s 35-20 win at Cincinnati last week.“Baker’s a winner,” Houston coach Bill O’Brien said. “He’s a competitor Brandon Dunn Jersey , very accurate, has a great instinct for the game, excellent ability to keep plays alive. I can just tell you we hold him in very high regard.”While Houston attempts to contain Mayfield, the Browns will try and limit the Texans’ young quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is also coming off a good game. Watson threw two touchdown passes and ran for a career-high 70 yards and a score in a 34-17 win over Tennessee on Monday.Cleveland interim coach Gregg Williams has been impressed with Watson’s improvement in his second season after playing just seven games as a rookie before suffering a season-ending knee injury.“I think the game’s slowing down for him,” Williams said. “You can see that he’s more relaxed. He never did show any stress or panic, but you can see he’s more comfortable in what he’s doing … you can see as the season’s gone on, each week he’s more and more comfortable with how he’s playing physically (and) mentally.”Some things to look for when the Browns visit the Texans:RUNNING WILDThe Texans are averaging the fourth-most yards rushing a game in the NFL after running for a franchise-record 281 yards on Monday night. Lamar Miller led the way with 162 yards rushing and a 97-yard touchdown against the Titans. The 27-year-old Miller is having a solid season after being slowed by minor injuries last year. He has three 100-yard rushing games after not rushing for more than 75 yards in a game last season.“(Miller) is hitting the hole and he is hitting it fast and violent, and he is breaking arm tackles,” Browns linebacker Joe Schobert said. “There are linebackers and D-line are in the holes and just trying to reach out trying to bring him down. He is running through it Dylan Cole Jersey , and you see he has the speed to take it all the way to the house like we saw the other day.”ROAD WOESCleveland’s win at Cincinnati last week snapped a 25-game road losing streak and was its first victory away from Cleveland since Oct. 11, 2015. Now the Browns will try to win consecutive road games in a season for the first time since they beat San Francisco and Pittsburgh on Sept. 21 and Oct. 5, 2003.While the Browns have been terrible on the road, they haven’t been much better at home. Sunday’s victory marked the first time they’d won two straight games overall since 2014, when they won three in a row.QB REUNIONOnce foes, Watson and Mayfield are now friends.The quarterbacks will have an on-field reunion Sunday, meeting for the first time since the 2016 Orange Bowl when Watson led Clemson to a 37-17 win over Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners. Watson and Mayfield are part of the NFL’s next wave of star quarterbacks, and the pair already shares a mutual respect.“He’s going to have a bright future, a bright career, win a lot of games Trevor Daniel Jersey , win championships and do a lot of things for himself and that organization,” Watson said of Mayfield. “I’m a big Baker fan and everything that he has been doing for a long time. It’s going to be very exciting to see him pregame and compete against him. I’ll talk to him later this week and probably jersey swap with him.”The Browns passed on a chance to draft Watson in 2017. But if they had taken him, Mayfield would be elsewhere. As he develops, Cleveland’s rookie QB has been impressed with what Watson has already accomplished.“Deshaun is an incredible quarterback, incredible athlete, a great leader,” Mayfield said. “He’s been playing at a very high level. He’s a huge reason why they’ve won eight in a row. It’s always great to play great competition. You always look forward to that.” The Texans shore up the RB position by trading for the former Brown."

Detroit Lions waive RB Zach Zenner from reserve/injured The Detroit Lions parted ways with running back Zach Zenner on Wednesday T.J. Jones Jersey , cutting him from the reserve/injured list. Zenner was a longshot to make the roster after the Lions added both rookie Kerryon Johnson and LeGarrette Blount this offseason, but his chances went to zero when he was injured early in the preseason finale, suffering an undisclosed back injury. By releasing Zenner from reserve/injured—with an injury settlement—the running back can actually return to action this year. Theoretically, the Lions could actually bring him back, too. According to league rules, the team that agrees to an injury settlement can re-sign a player an additional six weeks after the agreed length of the injury settlement. For example, if the player gets a four-week injury settlement (payment for four weeks Kerry Hyder Jersey , because, presumably, that would be the length it would take to recover from the injury), the Lions could sign him 10 weeks from today. There’s actually precedent for this, as well. In 2016, the Lions cut Josh Bynes from reserve/injured just before the season began. A couple months later, the Lions re-signed Bynes and he finished out the season starting eight games for the team.That sort of path isn’t as likely for Zenner. The Lions’ stable of backs is still crowded Zach Zenner Jersey , and it’s not clear what role Zenner could play if he stayed in Detroit. That being said, if the Lions are in an injury predicament in November, maybe Zenner gets a call. For now, he’s much more likely to find a spot on another team. Because he’s still not a veteran by NFL’s standards, he will go on waivers immediately.
