NFL confirms Justin Timberlake as Super Bowl halftime performer

Reports had leaked out last month about Justin Timberlake performing at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, and on Sunday, the NFL provided confirmation. The 36-year-old Grammy winner will return to the biggest stage in the country’s most-watched TV show for the first time since his infamous “wardrobe malfunction” moment with Janet Jackson in 2004.

Of the way his experience differed with that of Jackson, Timberlake said in a 2006 interview with MTV, “It’s an understatement to say that it was sort of unfair. If you consider it 50/50, I probably got 10 percent of the blame. And I think that says something about society. I think that America’s harsher on women and I think that America’s unfairly harsh on ethnic people.”

Right guard Brandon Brooks and right tackle Lane Johnson were very physical in the run game, and both gave up a couple of pressures, but their positive play this season has really given their quarterbacks great time and throwing lanes for the run-pass option, which many times includes slants to the right side. While there was concern all week about left tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai going against Everson Griffen in this game, he was very solid and only allowed a pair of pressures, proving to many that he is a starter in this league.

The lone sack allowed occurred because of a running back chip on Johnson’s man; knocked off the block, Johnson ended up tripping. It’s a comical play, to say the least, as the chip is supposed to help the tackle in need. In this case, he really didn’t need the help, but I don’t think any offensive linemen will be complaining about getting chips in the future.

It may seem like quarterback Eli Manning will play forever, but eventually Big Blue will have to find his successor, and the No. 1 pick would allow them to select any of the aforementioned quarterbacks pegged to go at the top of the draft, a tantalizing upgrade over current backup Davis Webb, a third-round pick in 2017.patriots_025_ada3e7ae71ca947a-180x180

The second failed try was a pass into tight coverage that JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey couldn’t haul in.

For someone in the NFL to get noticed by the White House, they either need to do something really good or something really bad. It’s the latter for the league office Friday, with the White House issuing a stern edict over the recent domestic violence problems surrounding football.

Specifically, a White House official said, via our colleagues at CBS News, the league needs to get a handle on its issues with domestic violence.
Jarred Tinordi Youth Jersey
Outcry followed and more outcry followed that, with the Ravens releasing Rice and the NFL suspending the running back indefinitely. (The suspension is on appeal.)

Attention was then turned toward Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, now on the commissioner’s exempt list, going through the legal process in a domestic violence incident of his own. (A judge found him guilty Alex Killorn Jersey during a bench trial; Hardy appealed the ruling and awaits a jury trial.)
Troy Tulowitzki Youth Jersey
Meanwhile, just five days after the Rice video was released, superstar running back Adrian Peterson was indicted on child abuse charges and turned himself into authorities. He’s also on the commish exempt list until his legal issues are cleared up. The Vikings deactivated Peterson for Week 2 but reinstated him after losing badly to the Patriots before flip flopping again when the public was outraged.

It’s a questionable call against a Jaguars defense that is typically good at defending the edges and swallowed up toss plays for most of the game Sunday.

On both plays, the Steelers needed just one yard but opted against a run up the middle by Bell or Roethlisberger. It’s possible that Roethlisberger audibled away from a quarterback sneak on one or both plays, but whoever made the call not to bulldoze ahead with the 6’5 quarterback will have some explaining to do.

Inspired, Philly’s D forced a three-and-out, the Foles led the Eagles on a 12-play, 75-yard masterpiece of a drive. LeGarrette Blount showed all his power and escapability on an 11-yard surge up the middle for a 14-7 lead.

Mike Mularkey Jersey, Tennessee Titans 锟斤拷 How do you make Marcus Mariota boring?

That’s what Mularkey somehow managed to do, as he and his coaching staff fielded a painfully unwatchable offense despite obvious skill-position talent. The Titans are still in the playoff picture, but if they miss out after an 8-4 start, then Mularkey has some questions to answer.

Bill O’Brien, Houston Texans 锟斤拷 Not every team is going to survive losing their franchise QB in early October, but the way the Texans curled up and died after Deshaun Watson tore his ACL is kinda startling. They’ve been 1-7 since then, trotting out Tom Savage and T.J. Yates as metaphorical white flags.

In fairness to O’Brien, he was dealt an awful hand with injuries this season. (The quarterbacks, J.J. Watt, and Whitney Mercilus are just the tip of the iceberg). However, there was reported tension between him and general manager Rick Smith, including concerns about him being the right fit for Watson’s skill set. Combine that with the Texans’ worst record since 2013 锟斤拷 right before O’Brien was hired 锟斤拷 and this could lead to a clash of egos when all is said and done.

O’Brien is sticking around and Rick Smith is taking a leave of absence to help care for his wife, who has breast cancer.

The Broncos’ defense-first plan fell apart because they have no quarterback, and Joseph already offered up former OC Mike McCoy as a sacrificial lamb. In addition, John Elway hasn’t been shy about throwing his weight around, and he isn’t mincing words Womens Jose Reyes Jersey about his dissatisfaction. Elway should probably get more heat for the quarterback situation (Paxton Lynch, last year’s first-round pick, already looks like a lost cause), but Joseph still has a lot to prove if he survives this year.

Todd Haley’s offenses put up big numbers, but a frosty relationship with Ben Roethlisberger and some questionable play-calling ultimately cost him.

But on his fourth play, a pass to Deonte Thompson was knocked into the air by Ramsey and hauled in for an interception.

In the locker room after the game, Ramsey told reporters that he sniffed out the play because Peterman threw the same pass to the opposite side of the field two plays earlier.

Gabriel Baumgaertner: Red Sox GM Dave Dombrowski loves spending his money established power hitters.

Hours after the Jacksonville Jaguars earned a 10-3 win over the Buffalo Bills, Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue had a message for Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito.

No. 64 on the Bills is Incognito and Ngakoue’s hashtag, #Iaintjonathanmartin, is a reference to a bullying scandal with the Miami Dolphins that resulted in Incognito getting released by the team.

And his connection with Dombrowski—who signed him as a no-name minor league free agent in Detroit years ago—coupled with the general manager’s perpetual willingness to spend on elite talent improves Boston’s odds.?

Boston could do a bit of everything last year except hit for power. Martinez, one of the game’s best power bats, will fit right in for the Red Sox.

Connor Grossman: After enduring a surprising power outage last season, the Red Sox will be the team to tackle Scott Boras’s sky-high contract demands for Martinez. The slugger’s outfield skills are already subpar, so it makes sense he would land in the American League where he can start DHing now (and throughout a deal that should last until he’s 36 or 37). Martinez is reportedly seeking $200-plus million, most of which is only possible thanks to his 45-homer career year in 2017. Even if he doesn’t get $200 million, Boston is one of the few franchises that could approach that figure.

2018 free agents like Terrelle Pryor, Mike Wallace, Danny Amendola, and Jordan Matthews could offer some instant support. A handful of intriguing prospects could also bolster the team’s roster through the draft. No matter what happens, whoever steps in to fill Fox’s shoes will have his work cut out for him in Chicago.

Karp, and fellow ratings expert Anthony Crupi, TV reporter for Advertising Age, both expected NFL ratings to swing back this season, thinking temporary issues—most notably massive interest in the presidential election during the first half of the 2016 season—played a large role in last year’s fall. Plus, traditionally popular teams like the New York Giants, Dallas, Green Bay and Oakland seemed poised for successful years. “The fact that the ratings haven’t bounced back is surprising,” Crupi says. “Take all the political stuff out and it feels like there are more long-lasting reasons at play. The 18-34 demographic is just completely disappearing from TV.”blues_1055

Drew Brees Jersey reminds rest of NFC playoff field who’s got the ring

The Saints’ defense and the team’s top rookies, Kamara and Lattimore, have come a long way since then. In essence, what happened in September in Minneapolis is meaningless except for how well Brees played in mostly rally mode that Monday night (27-of-37 passing, 291 yards, one TD, 104.7 passer rating).
Women's Limited Donald Trump Navy Blue Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Home #45 NFL New England Patriots Nike
Chances are, Ingram and Kamara will be contained again and the defense will give up plenty more yardage against Keenum and a more dangerous receiving corps than Carolina’s. Brees won’t find Ginn and go-to wideout Michael Thomas Eric Rowe Womens Jersey streaking as free in the secondary with Xavier Rhodes and friends looming on the other side.

But here’s the thing: With what Brees is and has been, that ring carries a lot more sparkle in these NFC playoffs. Just as we respect Tom Brady for being there and doing that and still playing at an elite level, Brees is the next most recent QB left in the playoffs who knows what lifting the Lombardi is like.

The Panthers found that out. The Vikings better be prepared to put Brees to a much stiffer test.

For him to miss anything, something’s got to be hurt, Mularkey said of Murray, via ESPN. I’m definitely not going to rule him out. He’s day-to-day.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota Jersey played through a quad injury vs. Patriots

Titans coach Mike Mularkey disclosed that Mariota suffered a quad injury during the first quarter of the divisional playoff game, and it prevented the quarterback from scrambling effectively.
Cameron Jordan Womens Jersey
Wentz’s backup, Nick Foles, has not been good and was downright abysmal in a 6-0 loss to the Cowboys in Week 17. If the Eagles can’t generate some offense against the Falcons, it might be too much to ask for Philadelphia’s fourth-ranked defense to keep Atlanta from scoring.

The Titans were down 21-3 to the Chiefs before storming back for a 22-21 victory at Arrowhead Stadium. If they get into a 21-3 hole against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium, there probably won’t be any digging out of it.

Womens Andrew Sendejo Jersey The Patriots have been superb at home in the postseason with six straight wins in Foxborough. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, with his five Super Bowl titles, has the most playoff wins all-time by a starting quarterback with 25. A victory over the Titans will send the Patriots to the AFC championship game for the seventh straight season.

Sendejo laid on the turf at U.S. Bank Stadium surrounded by trainers before walking off slowly under his own power.

The blind-side hit from Thomas was initially flagged, but picked up after a discussion by officials much to the chagrin of Vikings fans and Xavier Rhodes, who had to be restrained by teammates after the hit.

On the next play after the concussion-inducing hit, Thomas beat Rhodes on a crossing pattern for the Saints’ first touchdown of the game.

The Steelers (13-4) were shellshocked from the opening series as the Jaguars marched 66 yards on eight plays. Fournette capped the drive by going airborne for a 1-yard dive into the end zone on fourth-and-goal.

Despite a Eric Berry Youth jersey monster game from Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, who finished with seven catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns, the Jaguars answered each score. Brown scored on a 23-yard touchdown in the second quarter to get the Steelers on the board.

Matthews: You obviously see the drop off when he’s not out there simply because he’s arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

Matthews: When we’re out there on defense, number one you try to lead by example, but also little things when you’re first down or something like that just refocusing from being in the same position. I don’t know if there’s some message you can send to rally the troops because this isn’t high school football. You have to be self-motivated and you have role models and everything, but I think for the most part, it’s little bits of advice here and there that puts it in perspective.
