The 31-yard return set the Browns up at the Giants 39-yard line.

Pace of play … The NFL made quickening the pace of games a priority this season, and Goodell said in New York he’s pleased with the results thus far.

“We said all along this wasn’t about reducing the length of games,” Goodell said. “It was the pace of the game. The 40-second clock is an example we put in after the point-after-touchdown and after the touchdowns and had a real impact.

However, the Browns were unable to take advantage of the impressive field position. Cleveland ended up coming away with zero points after Brock Osweiler threw an interception.

If the first two weeks of the preseason are any indication, opposing offensive linemen could be in trouble anytime they go up against Myles Garrett this season. After an impressive debut against the Saints last week, the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft picked up his first sack of the preseason on Monday when he took down Geno Smith.

You know how NFL teams say that those dreaded distractions must be avoided at all costs? What about when the owner of the team is the person creating the off-field turbulence?

The Browns are on the clock. The No. 1 overall selection in the NFL draft is secured. In the meantime, they seek their own brand of perfection when they play Sunday at Pittsburgh with a winless season still within reach.

“I wholeheartedly agree with the commissioner’s statement,” Spanos said in statement posted to the team’s website. “The NFL and its players, more than anything, have been a force for good. What our country needs right now is a message of unity, civility and mutual respect.”

As someone who is required to watch that game, I can’t believe I’m saying this … but I am. It’s time for the Jaguars to unleash Blake Bortles, against the mighty Steelers, in Pittsburgh, with a trip to the AFC title game at stake.chargers_076

The injuries are accumulating for QB Matthew Stafford Jersey and the Lions are becoming an afterthought in the NFC playoff chase.

The most meaningful issues arising from Monday night’s game in Cincinnati were concerns over the severity of the injury suffered by the Steelers’ Ryan Shazier and the alarm over the brutality of the illegal hits delivered by both teams. The competitive implications of the Bengals’ loss were far less significant, although their playoff chances Womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey were damaged.

Was that really this season when the Chiefs were 5-0? It seems like several years ago right about now. Maybe Coach Andy Reid will snap to his senses at some point and figure out that a dramatic change or two must be made. Otherwise, there is no indication whatsoever that the Chiefs are going to find a way to reverse their downward spiral. And it might be too late now, anyway.

Chubb is the pre-eminent edge-rusher in the 2018 class who checks all the boxes. Size. Production. Pass-rushing moves. Edge-setting strength. Athleticism. He’s really good.

Cutler’s numbers actually could’ve been better if not for a holding penalty. On his fifth play from scrimmage, Cutler hit Parker for a 31-yard gain that was called back when Sam Young was flagged for holding.

Limited Youth Terrell Davis Jersey A big reason why Cutler gave up his announcing job at Fox and return to football is because he wanted to be reunited with Dolphins coach Adam Gase, who served as his offensive coordinator in 2015 while both men were with the Bears.

Gase definitely seems to already trust Cutler, and it showed during the quarterback’s brief time on the field. During his two offensive possessions, Cutler spent most of his time in shotgun and even appeared to be calling his own plays at certain points, which is impressive when you consider the fact that he signed with the Dolphins less than two weeks ago.

Elite Mens Jamie Garcia Jersey Jones may feel that he is being reasonable, but David Moore of the Dallas Morning News writes that it comes across as imperious and noted that Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price called Jones’s order, Slaves, obey your master.

Jerick McKinnon Jersey will be a popular add off waivers, and why not?

Of the two, the Seahawks are the better bet to chase down the Cowboys for a wild-card spot. Despite the hiccup in Washington, Seattle is allowing just 1.52 points per drive, the sixth-lowest scoring rate this season 锟斤拷 while forcing opponents into three-and-out situations more than a third of the time (38.1 percent), ninth-highest in the league. The Seahawks also boast the second-best coverage unit in 2017. Led by shutdown corner Richard Sherman, Seattle’s secondary is allowing opposing receivers to catch just 58 percent of their targets, the third-lowest rate behind the Chiefs and Budda Baker Authentic Jersey Ravens; league average is 62.5 percent.

He’s uber-athletic, having run a sub 4.41 40-yard dash to go along with a legit 40-inch vertical. While he’s a smaller back (5-foot-9, 210 pounds) he was still able to pump out a ridiculous 32 bench presses. As a comparison, Derrick Henry racked up 22 reps on the bench. Not including fullbacks, the 32 reps by McKinnon is the most by any running back in at least the previous 10 combined. It’s a long way of saying: yes, he’s fast, but the guy’s stronger than you’d think.

In that apparently insatiable need to speculate about what comes next, the caller, on with host Jordan Helle that day, referred to Taulia Tagovailoa, a high school quarterback in Alabaster, Ala., near Birmingham.

Josh Bailey Limited Jersey Said the caller, It’s amazing that he has a younger brother who’s supposed to be better.

It sounded lunatic, of course, yet also like a thousand hoping calls in a thousand hoping towns, in the 48 states on the U.S. mainland.

So on third down, with the seconds slipping away, and the Steelers on the Patriots’ 7-yard line, Roethlisberger told his offense to prepare for a spike play. And then the voice in his ear, offensive coordinator Todd Haley, told him otherwise.

It came from the sideline, ‘Don’t clock it, don’t clock it,’ Roethlisberger said. At that time, everyone thinks it’s clock, so you don’t have time to get everyone lined up.

Mississippi State’s Teaira McCowan Jersey had 12 points and 18 rebounds, with 10 of her boards coming on the offensive end.

We just didn’t play hard as a team for 40 minutes, period, Tennessee guard Evina Westbrook said. That can’t happen.

Tennessee’s Mercedes Russell scored 16 points and shot 7 of 9, but the 6-foot-6 center didn’t get much help. Russell’s teammates shot a combined 12 of 44 from the floor and scored 36 points.

Without injured Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford, the Timberwolves overcame 56 percent shooting by the Clippers and made 33 of 39 free throws — led by Teague’s 16 of 17 — to win for the seventh time in nine games.

They are playing as well as anybody in the league, so to come in here and get a win, we did do a lot of good things, Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau said. We got great contributions from everybody.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers and assistant Mike Woodson were ejected with seven seconds left, two of four technicals the team received in the final 4:50. Their second straight loss dropped the Clippers into ninth place in the Western Conference, a half-game behind Denver for the final playoff spot.

Elite Youth Kenneth Acker Jersey Kyle Kuzma added 15 points as the Lakers (17-29) continued a midseason surge of solid play. Rookie point guard Alex Caruso set career highs with nine points and eight assists, making the most of more than 30 minutes of playing time while Ball missed his fourth straight game with a sore left knee.

The Lakers thought they did nothing spectacularly, but everything well — particularly Authentic Zach Parise Jersey on the defensive end, where they forced 17 turnovers. Los Angeles also won its fifth straight game at Staples Center after a 6-14 start to the home schedule.

Defense. That was the only message at halftime, Lakers coach Luke Walton said. During our home win streak, we have been really, really good defensively.

Los Angeles took the lead late in the third quarter and pulled away down the stretch, scoring 10 consecutive points in a rally led by Clarkson and Randle. The Lakers finished on a 17-4 run.

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.

Fichtner has a good working relationship with Roethlisberger, which helps with offensive continuity. Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show that he didn’t have issues with Haley, but several reports suggested a growing tension between the two.

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.
