LAKE FOREST Dwayne Haskins Jersey , Ill. (AP) Bears defense as dominant.Resilient might be a more appropriate description.The NFC North champion Bears (11-4) keep bouncing back from difficult situations to bring the heat on defense, and are within sight of achieving one major goal they set before the season as they head to Minnesota for Sundays regular-season finale with the Vikings (8-6-1).Dominant, thats it, Hicks said. We are aggressive. We like to hit.All the stuff that I was telling (media) before the season started, were everything that we said we were. And hopefully we can get to another level for these playoffs.It hasnt been a solid, steady rise for coordinator Vic Fangios defense, yet they rank fourth in the league and are No. 1 at taking away the ball with 36 turnovers forced.Prior to this season, Hicks and many Bears spoke openly about trying to get into the top five in overall league rankings. Whether its pass-rush pressure from Khalil Mack or a secondary that plays tight coverage, the defense is making it difficult for offenses at the right time.Its just that weve continued to play better, weve avoided the self-inflicted bad plays that we had in the Giant game, which contributed to our failings in that game D.K. Metcalf Jersey , Fangio said.The Bears defense struggled and gave up 23 of the Giants 30 points Dec. 2 in a 30-27 overtime defeat. Since then, they have allowed a touchdown only once: a 9-yard run around end against Green Bay. They beat the Rams 15-6, the Packers 24-17 and, last week, the 49ers 14-9.They bounced back in a similar way earlier this year after allowing more than 30 points in back-to-back losses to Miami and New England.When we have a team like that, were scary to other teams, linebacker Danny Trevathan said. We havent even played our best ball, but its getting there.Trevathan has taken to calling this a classic bend-but-dont break defense because the Bears can get into trouble, then come up with a big turnover like his interception in the red zone to help beat the 49ers.It looks a little gloomy out there, but we never stumble over ourselves, we never think twice http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...y-barton-jersey , Trevathan said.If there was a time this season for the Bears to take a step back on defense, this could have been it. They lost safety Eddie Jackson to an ankle injury and its possible hell miss a second straight game Sunday. Nickel defensive back Bryce Callahan had his strong season cut short three weeks ago by a broken foot.However, the defense flourished with Deon Bush at safety and Sherrick McManis at nickel corner.Since Ive been here, weve been losing a lot of players every year, safety Adrian Amos said. Its just next man up, stay to our assignments, everybody going to practice and everybody doing well.The Bears finished with eight key defensive players on injured reserve last year and six the previous season. But this year theyve been relatively healthy.We lost two key pieces a little bit the last couple weeks, but its just about how we respond. Dont flinch, Amos said. We just are a close-knit team, a good team, and good teams overcome adversity. In an NFL season Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , there is going to be adversity.The Bears lead the league in interceptions (27), fewest points allowed to opposing offenses (16.8 per game) and lowest opposing quarterback passer rating (72.5).Individually, Kyle Fuller is tied for the NFL interceptions lead with Miamis Xavien Howard at seven, and Mack is tied for the league lead with six forced fumbles.Defense is setting off a Chicago fan fervor, as it always has from Lovie Smiths units to the 1985 champions to the Dick Butkus era.Fangio is from the New York-Philadelphia area and said he didnt quite realize how much defense meant to Bears fans when he came to Chicago in 2015, although hed been told once by the late Jim Finks, a former Bears general manager.Jim Finks, my good buddy, told me way back when that if I ever had a chance to come to Chicago, I needed to because its a good sports town, Fangio said. They love the Bears http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...l-haynes-jersey , they love defense and were starting to feel that.Hopefully, well continue it this Sunday and into the playoffs.Fangio said it surprised him when even the defensive coordinator got recognized in public like Mack, even if it was a bit of a rarity.I got recognized one time in the four years here when I was out in public. I think thats it, Fangio said. Just in a gas station paying for my gas.NOTES: Jackson (ankle), wide receiver Allen Robinson II (ribs) and linebacker Aaron Lynch (elbow) missed practice for the second straight day Thursday. Defensive back DeAndre Houston-Carson missed Thursdays practice due to illness. As a rookie in the NFL, you dont have any say in where you play, or how much you make. What you did in college is in the past, and isnt going to score you a major contract in the NFL. Everything starts over, and you have to prove yourself once again, just like you did in high school and college to become a starter. So sometimes after rookies finish their four-year rookie contract, they decide to put themselves on the market and find another team. It may be forced from the team Ugo Amadi Jersey , or the player may feel theres a better opportunity elsewhere for him.There are quite a few players over the past few drafts who we could see that happen to in the future. Fans hate it, and teammates arent happy, but sometimes everyone cant be accommodated. And some of these players are really talented, and may have a bright future, just with another team. It unfortunately doesnt work out for everyone. And thats a part of being in the NFL. With the draft, you dont choose your destiny. And sometimes, you dont choose your success. Football is a team game, and you need help around you to help yourself become successful.

NFLs annual owners meetings next week in Phoenix. Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are among the players speaking in different sessions of the meeting.Fitzgerald will focus on how playing in the NFL can help players make an impact far beyond the playing field. Wilson Shareef Miller Jersey , with his wife, Ciara, will cover how they have applied goal-setting as an integral part of achieving success. Raiders linebacker James Cowser will share his unique story of how he became fluent in Mandarin while serving a two-year LDS mission. He then completed two internships in the NFLs China office, helping promote football in the worlds most populous country. Shawn Springs will discuss how his 13-year NFL career helped drive his breakthrough technology, Crash Cloud, which seeks to make football helmets safer.NFL Legends Mark Brunell, Willie McGinest, Chad Pennington and Michael Robinson will lead a youth football coaching clinic at the meeting. Joe Greene Devin Bush Jersey , Tony Richardson, Barry Sanders, Charles Tillman and Aeneas Williams also will attend. Tyreek Hill has yet to be summoned to the principals office. Ezekiel Elliott is headed there tomorrow.Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports that Elliott will meet with Goodell on Tuesday. Elliott has once again landed on the leagues radar screen in the aftermath of an incident at a Las Vegas music festival, where Elliott had a confrontation that resulted in a security guard falling, possibly with a nudge/shove/elbow from Elliott.As a prior offender under the leagues Personal Conduct Policy, Elliott faces enhanced penalties, if the league concludes that he committed another violation. In 2017, the NFL suspended Elliott six games in the aftermath of an allegation of domestic violence for which he was never arrested http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/aut...-johnson-jersey , charged, or even sued in civil court.It was, frankly, a Keystone Cops investigation and a kangaroo court proceeding, with one of the investigators recommending no suspension and having her voice thereafter frozen out of the process. But that doesnt change the end result the league suspended Elliott, and he served the six games. If he violates the policy again, hes a repeat offender, period.Then theres the fact that Elliott fought the issue in court Justin Layne Jersey , successfully obtaining an order that delayed the start of the suspension. Even though Big Shield ultimately won, Elliott made the mistake of tugging on Supermans cape. Throw in the fact that the incident sparked a failed effort by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (with an assist from Papa John) to topple Goodell, and the Commissioners revenge could be a dish served colder than a refrigerated slice of John Schnatters signature product.Still, whatever Goodell does now to Elliott (along with what Goodell did two years ago) rightfully will be compared to whatever Goodell does to Hill. And if theres a disparity between the outcomes, fans of the Cowboys and of Elliott will have good cause to react badly.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday to discuss an incident at a Las Vegas music festival earlier this offseason.Elliott had a confrontation with security guard Kyle Johnson Quinnen Williams Jersey , who said that Elliott shoved him. Elliott was briefly handcuffed, but criminal charges were not filed. Johnson requested a sincere apology from Elliott and Goodell sought a conversation as part of a process examining if Elliott, who served a six-game suspension in 2017, violated the Personal Conduct Policy.Elliott posted a message on Twitter after the meeting that included both an apology and a rundown of what he said he and Goodell discussed on Tuesday.Earlier today http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authent...i-polite-jersey , I met with the Commissioner to share with him what occurred in Las Vegas and what I have learned from that incident. Ive worked hard to make better decisions and to live up to the high standards that are expected of me.I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision. I apologized to Kyle Johnson at the time and I meant it.I need to work harder to ensure I do not put myself in compromised situations in the future. I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again.Elliott is expected at training camp with the Cowboys later this month. Former NFL safety Darren Sharper received an 18-year sentence in 2016 after pleading guilty to sexual assault charges in New Orleans, but filed a motion last year asking that the plea deal be overturned because he was not adequately advised of the ramifications of the deal by his attorneys.Sharper agreed to a deal offered by federal prosecutors that would cover charges in four state courts that he drugged and assaulted women. The deal originally called for a nine-year sentence, but that was rejected by a judge and Sharper was sentenced to twice that amount of time behind bars.That change led Sharper to claim his attorneys left him in a position where he had to maintain the guilty plea in order to avoid state prosecutions that could use admissions from his previous plea against him. On Wednesday Chuma Edoga Jersey , U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo rejected his claim.Milazzo wrote that Sharper was represented by highly experienced and well respected attorneys and that he said multiple times in court that he understood the terms of his agreement.The record shows that Sharper knew the terms of his plea agreement and that his attorneys worked closely with him in counseling him throughout his case, Milazzo wrote, via NOLA.com.Sharper, who played for the Packers http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authent...on-wesco-jersey , Vikings and Saints, is imprisoned at a federal prison in Otisville, N.Y.

He informed them of the decision April 19 D.K. Metcalf Jersey , and the Raiders did not seek their input before making their three first-round selections.I made the decision to do it three weeks ago, and I didnt tell anybody, Mayock said, via Scott Bair of NBCSportsBayArea.com. It was my decision. And when the job got done and the work was over. . . .I inherited a group of scouts http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-au...y-barton-jersey , and some of them may be with us, and some of them may not be with us by their own choice or not. At the end of the day, when the job was over, I brought them together as a group and respectfully and professionally told them that the job was done Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , thank you very much and that we would be talking.And 40 minutes later we had a leak, which just reinforced the decision.Since Mayock inherited scouts hired by previous G.M. Reggie McKenzie, turnover was expected after the draft. Mayock said he was surprised at reaction to his decision to send those scouts home before the draft.Im kind of blown away by the whole story, to be honest with you http://www.seahawkscheapshops.com/cheap-au...l-haynes-jersey , Mayock said. As the Patriots were deciding whether to cut receiver Antonio Brown, the NFL was doing some digging regarding the person who ultimately provided the catalyst for Browns current unemployment.According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL, the NFL interviewed on Friday the unnamed artist whose allegations surfaced six days ago on SI.com.Its unclear from the report whether the league spoke to her about the substance of the original accusation (he reportedly showed up while she was painting a mural at his house wearing nothing but a strategically placed hand towel) or his effort to intimidate her into dropping the matter via group text messages that claimed she was looking for money.Her lawyers issued multiple statements on Friday, which made it clear that the league had explored the intimidation angle and had instructed Brown to have no further contact with her. That conduct from Brown Ugo Amadi Jersey , standing alone, potentially violates the Personal Conduct Policy.Another potential violation arises from the behavior that prompted her to come forward in the first place. Its not clear based on the statements issued Friday or from Rapoports report whether the league has talked to her about that, yet.

Say what?The Who Dat folks from New Orleans go head-on with the Who Dey fans in Cincinnati on Sunday. And dont ask which group first came up with its catchy phrase and odd rendering of the English language.Who Dey? I dont understand. Im baffled Drew Sample Jersey , says Saints running back Mark Ingram. Its like, did they copy us? Or not? I dont know. Who Dat! Who Dat! Who Dat! What anyone might ask is whether the Saints (7-1), coming off three huge victories, including handing the Rams their first loss, are ripe for a letdown. Drew Brees and company face Philadelphia next week.Theyre going to be hungry coming off the bye week, Ingram says of the Bengals. They have playoff aspirations. They have aspirations of winning their division. So every game is important to them just like it is to us. So were going up there in foreign territory, hostile territory, and weve got to go make it happen. Were a good team. We respect them but were always worried about this building, this team, what we need to do to put ourselves in position to have success.It might be difficult for New Orleans to find a way to lose this one, though. In the past three games, the Bengals (5-3) have given up 481 yards to Pittsburgh, then 551 to Kansas City and 576 to Tampa Bay.Granted, those are three of the NFLs top attacks. The Saints are up there, too, so if Cincinnati gives up 500 yards Sunday, it will become the first team to allow 500 in three consecutive games.Were underachieving right now http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/germaine-pratt-jersey-cheap , defensive end Carlos Dunlap admits. Were playing well enough to win some games, which is why were 5-3. If we work on the negatives, we can be that elite defense and that elite team.Right now, the eliteness is in the Big EasyThey go as Brees goes, Dunlap adds. Weve got to find a way to slow down that future Hall of Famer.The weekend began Thursday night with Pittsburghs 52-21 home victory over Carolina. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 328 yards and five touchdowns to help the Steelers (6-2-1) win their fifth straight. The Panthers (6-3) had won three in a row.Off this week are Minnesota (5-3-1), Denver (3-6), Baltimore (4-5) and Houston (6-3).Dallas (3-5) at Philadelphia (4-4)For the Cowboys to stay real in the NFC East, they need a quick reversal of fortune. With four of those five losses coming on the road, a visit to the Linc isnt all that enticing.These teams meet on Sunday Night Football for the 10th consecutive season and 12th time overall. Dallas must find a passing game somewhere, and spring Ezekiel Elliott for some big plays, but the blocking unit has declined significantly.The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles are 17-5 at home under coach Doug Pederson. Carson Wentz has thrown at least one TD with no more than one interception in 21 straight games, tied with Matt Ryan for the longest streak in NFL history. He has a new target in Golden Tate. The wideout was obtained from Detroit, for which he had eight catches for 132 yards and two TDs vs. the Cowboys on Sept. 30.Seattle (4-4) at Los Angeles Rams (8-1)Coming off their first defeat, the Rams will remember they struggled to win 33-31 at Seattle last month. A victory would give LA a 4½-game edge in the NFC West and pretty much shut it down.Both teams boast potent ground games, with the big star being LAs Todd Gurley. The Rams are No. 1 in the NFL with Gurley at 868 yards rushing; he also has 12 TD runs; he has scored in 12 consecutive games, the longest regular-season streak in team history.The Seahawks are tops in rushing since Week 3 with 159.8 yards per game after concentrating more on the ground game following an 0-2 start.Arizona (2-6) at Kansas City (8-1)The Cardinals are 0-4-1 at Kansas City, and this isnt exactly the best time to be visiting. Arizona has the NFLs worst offense and ranks 31st in pass defense. All the Chiefs do Ryan Finley Jersey , with Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, is score, score and score some more.But Cardinals star receiver Larry Fitzgerald could make some history. Fitzgerald needs 33 yards receiving to pass Terrell Owens (15,934) for second in NFL history. Fitz needs 14 receptions to pass Jerry Rice (San Francisco, 1,281) for the NFL record for receptions with one team.Detroit (3-5) at Chicago (5-3)A very lopsided series recently in favor of Detroit, which has won nine of 10. Indeed, Chicago hasnt won an NFC North game in its past 10 attempts.But the Lions allowed 10 sacks yes, 10 to Minnesota last week, and Chicago has an even better defense than the Vikings.The Bears also are decently balanced and rank fifth in scoring. Still, their calling card is on D, and they scored twice that way against Buffalo: Eddie Jacksons 65-yard fumble recovery and Leonard Floyds 19-yard interception return.Washington (5-3) at Tampa Bay (3-5)The Redskins were routed at home by Atlanta last weekend and lost three key players, including both starting guards. Adrian Peterson has three consecutive 100-yard rushing games against Tampa Bay, including last year with the Cardinals. Can he find room to roam behind a makeshift offensive line?Tampa sure can pass and sure can score, but it often falls so far behind that it cant catch up. The Bucs have been outscored 103-27 in the first half of Ryan Fitzpatricks past three starts http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/renell-wren-jersey-cheap , all losses.Still, Fitzpatrick has three games with four or more TD passes, the most in the NFC this season, and has been much better than erstwhile starter Jameis Winston.New England (7-2) at Tennessee (4-4)Here we go again: New England is on a roll as Tom Brady makes everyone around him better.The Patriots have won six straight (seven in a row overall against Tennessee). Brady will play in his 300th game, including postseason, and will join Brett Favre (326) as the only NFL quarterbacks to appear in 300 games. Brady needs three TD passes to tie Peyton Manning (579) for the most in NFL history, also including playoffs.Tennessee comes off a solid victory at Dallas and coach Mike Vrabel had his biggest playing days in New England, where he won three titles.Weve just gotten ourselves to the surface where theres a little bit of air, a little bit of water, Vrabel says. Youre kind of taking a little bit of both in and you cant survive there for long. But you can survive there for a few minutes. And so we got to make the next decision to see if we can get our heads completely above water.Atlanta (4-4) at Cleveland (2-6-1)Injuries seemed to ruin the Falcons season, yet here they are at .500 and with six games upcoming against teams currently owning losing records. Matt Ryan is having an outstanding year, even while overshadowed in the NFC South by Brees and Cam Newton.With 13 yards receiving Sunday, Julio Jones will reach 10,000 in his career and become the fastest player to reach that milestone (104 games).The Browns have dropped four straight, and are 0-1 under interim coach Gregg Williams. But their .786 winning percentage (11-3) against the Falcons is the teams highest against any opponent.Los Angeles Chargers (6-2) at Oakland (1-7)Another guy not getting enough recognition for a superb passing season is Philip Rivers while Patrick Mahomes grabs the AFC West headlines. Playing the woeful Raiders shouldnt hurt Rivers resume: He has completed 75 of 100 passes for 994 yards, six TDs and no INTs in his past three outings vs. Oakland for a 126.0 rating.Plus, the Chargers have won five straight for their best record at the seasons midpoint since 2006.Meanwhile Michael Jordan Jersey , the Raiders are such a mess that they have been outscored 55-3 over the past five quarters and are allowing a 113.9 passer rating, on pace for the worst in franchise history.Miami (5-4) at Green Bay (3-4-1)Somehow, the Dolphins are a wild-card contender despite being outgained by 704 yards and outscored by 38 points. Much of that can be attributed to the past three road games, in which they were outscored 107-47.On the bright side, Miami ranks first with 15 interceptions, including four last week against the Jets.Aaron Rodgers, of course, doesnt throw picks. Rodgers has thrown 15 touchdowns to one interception, leading the league with a 0.3 percent interception percentage. And RB Aaron Jones leads the NFL at 6.03 yards per carry.Jacksonville (3-5) at Indianapolis (3-5)Two 3-5 marks that look much different. Jacksonville has dropped four in a row and is among the most disappointing clubs in football. Indy is giving a decent accounting of itself despite a lack of talent.Theres plenty of skill at quarterback, however. Andrew Luck, who missed 2017 with a shoulder injury, is back in fine form and has not been sacked in his past 154 pass attempts dating to the second offensive play against New England on Oct. 4. Its the longest stretch of his pro career.Colts K Adam Vinatieri will be honored for breaking the NFLs career scoring record two weeks ago at Oakland. Vinatieri needs one win to tie George Blanda (209) for most regular-season wins in league history.Buffalo (2-6) at New York Jets (3-6)With all that record scoring throughout the league, this could be an 8-5 snoozer.Sam Darnold has regressed behind center for the Jets and now has a foot injury. But lets be fair: Darnold has very little help, especially with versatile RB Bilal Powell on IR. Last years starter, veteran QB Josh McCown, steps in.As for Buffalo, well http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/auth...-renfrow-jersey , maybe getting rid of Tyrod Taylor wasnt such a wise move.New York Giants (1-7) at San Francisco (2-7), Monday nightThis isnt likely to be as much of a sleep-inducer as Bills-Jets. At least a national TV audience gets to watch Saquon Barkley, the most dynamic rookie to hit New York since Odell Beckham Jr. and without all the baggage.San Francisco has its own intriguing story after rookie QB Nick Mullens tore up Bay Area rival Oakland last week. Mullens joined Hall of Famers Jim Kelly and Fran Tarkenton as the only players with at least 250 yards passing, three TDs and no INTs in his career debut. The Dolphins are making no secret that theyre tanking, while the Steelers are trying to get better even after losing Ben Roethlisberger.Miami defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick has been traded to Pittsburgh, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The trade includes a first-round draft pick, although its unclear whether thats the entirety of the trade.The Dolphins just drafted Fitzpatrick with the 11th overall pick last year, but since then theyve gone into major rebuilding mode and are selling off all their assets. The Steelers, on the other hand, are eager to improve their secondary with a talented young player.Given the Steelers 0-2 start and the season-ending injury to Roethlisberger, their first-round pick in 2020 could be a high pick. Right now the Dolphins care more about high picks than wins, and they may have added another high pick, while the Steelers added a player who can help them win.

Michael Dicksons doing some supplemental work in practice this week Rashan Gary Jersey , in case he has to make NFL history on Sunday. in case he has to fill in for kicker Sebastian Janikowski again this week.Dickson kicked off twice that way (one good, one bad), but Janikowski was able to recover from a back injury to handle field goals and extra points last week against the Chiefs. The hope is that Janikowski will be fine Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , but Dickson is working on the mechanics of the play in case hes needed.I was freaking out a bit because I have never really hit a drop-kick field goal with like the protection and everything, Dickson said, via Bob Condotta of the . So we kind of worked on that [Wednesday in practice] and got used to it so I feel a little bit more comfortable now with that. Only really hit them messing around in warmups and during my kickoffs [before].No one has drop-kicked a field goal since at least 1941 according to league records, though Patriots quarterback Doug Flutie drop-kicked an extra point in 2006. Dickson has fooled around with it in pre-game warmups Elgton Jenkins Jersey , and said he has hit one from 60 yards away. But that was on his own, without having to catch a snap or face a rush.Were still kind of working through that, Dickson said. When we went out there we were going to do about 10 yards and try to keep the same kick depth [as a field goal]. But Im kind of messing around with doing maybe a punt depth so it would give a little more time to spin the laces and get the laces right. Its a slower get off time because youve got to drop it and then wait for it to bounce and then kick it. Just trying to see what works best.Dickson has used his Australian rugby background to learn how to punt from different angles, and has proven to be a weapon in his own right as a rookie. And while no one wishes ill on Janikowski Jace Sternberger Jersey , it would be fascinating to see Dickson try to score in a way most of us have never seen. Another offseason, another limited presence from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.Yes, Brady isnt expected to show up when the defending Super Bowl champions return to work on Monday. Last year, he did the same thing. And it all worked out fairly well.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media suggests that Brady may bulk up for his 20th season Dexter Williams Jersey , before which hell turn 42. If Brady does that, hell largely if not exclusively be doing it on his own, working out away from the team.Bradys recent habit of skipping the offseason program seems to be part of the compromise he has reached with his wife, who seemed to be nudging him to retire two years ago Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , when she ultimately went public with concerns about concussions he has suffered. Brady now seems to have license to play as long as he wants, as long as he treats the voluntary offseason program as mostly voluntary.And with Brady openly wondering how to get from six Super Bowl wins to 15 (in honor of Tiger Woods fifteenth major title), Brady may keep playing for a while.

GLENDALE Will Harris Jersey , Ariz. (AP) of the second, Washingtons offense couldnt be stopped.Whether it was Alex Smith passing or Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson running, the Redskins simply dominated Arizona up front and the 24-6 Washington victory on Sunday was even more dominant than that score would indicate.Our O-line set the tone early, Smith said, especially with the way we were running the football. I mean, anytime youre moving the chains like that, its easier to get into a rhythm and I thought we did that there in the first half.Washington had consecutive touchdown drives of 80, 73 and 92 yards to lead 21-0 at halftime.The first-half statistics were grossly one-sided.Washington outgained the Cardinals 261 yards to 36 and had a 22-2 advantage in first downs. The Redskins controlled the ball for 22:57 to Arizonas 7:03.That was about how you draw it up, Washington linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. I dont know how many snaps we played in the first half (14 for the Redskins defense), but it wasnt a lot. Kudos to our offense for keeping us off the field.Smith, acquired from Kansas City in the offseason, finished 21 of 30 for 255 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in his Washington debut.Peterson rushed for 96 yards on 26 carries. Thompson gained 65 yards in just five attempts, and caught a 13-yard touchdown pass.I think any time you win on the road first game of the year, whenever you win on the road http://www.detroitlionsteamonline.com/austin-bryant-jersey , youve got to say everybody played pretty darned well, coach Jay Gruden said. Especially the quarterback and safety on defense, middle linebacker. I thought they all played extremely well.Here are some things to consider from Sundays Redskins victory over Arizona.CHORUS OF BOOS: The Cardinals, in the debut of new coach Steve Wilks, were showered with boos from the home crowd as they left the field.We heard them booing, Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson said. I mean, we didnt give them nothing good to watch today.Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald agreed.They pay a lot of money, he said. They work extremely hard to build up to buy those tickets and they expect to see good football and they didnt see that today. Next time we come back here, we owe it to them to perform a lot better and give them something to be happy about and cheer for.PETERSONS MILESTONES: Adrian Peterson, with 96 yards rushing, moved past Marshall Faulk and Jim Brown into 10th on the NFL career yards rushing list with 12,372. He needs 368 to pass Tony Dorsett for ninth place.Petersons 1-yard scoring run was his 100th career rushing touchdown, tying Faulk and Shaun Alexander for seventh on the career list.His performance came just two weeks after he signed with the Redskins.God has really gifted me with tremendous talent, Peterson said. The Redskins saw that. Other teams had the opportunity Max Scharping Jersey , but for whatever reason, things didnt work out. They worked out the way they were supposed to. I was ready.JOHNSONS DEAL: David Johnson was in no mood to talk about his new contract after what he considered a poor performance.Johnson signed a three-year extension Saturday night worth $39 million with $30 million guaranteed.He had a pair of good early runs but the team had to go away from the ground game after falling so far behind. Still, Johnson was very self-critical.We just couldnt get anything going, Johnson said. I missed a couple holes and I didnt help out Sam (Bradford) with the blocking. I didnt play my best game.Johnson rushed for 37 yards on nine carries and caught five passes for 30 yards.REDSKINS 2-0? Washington took care of one issue by getting Gruden his first season-opening win as Redskins coach (in five tries).Now, the team will try to go 2-0 for the first time since 2011 when it plays its home opener against Indianapolis on Sunday.You guys kept reminding me all week about the thing, the 0-4 start, Gruden said. Now its time to put back-to-back games together. We have to play a tough Andrew Luck-led Colts team next week at home, and we have to do a better job for our home crowd.INJURIES: Washington lost a pair of wide receivers to ankle injuries, rookie Cam Sims and Trey Quinn. Arizona starting right tackle Andre Smith left with an elbow injury in the fourth quarter. Many on the outside are wondering whether the Cardinals are planning to move on from last years first-round draft quarterback, Josh Rosen, and replace him with the first overall pick in this years draft. New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury unwittingly fueled that speculation long before he became the Cardinals coach by saying that if he had the first overall pick in the NFL draft, hed use it on Kyler Murray.But now that Kingsbury is in Arizona with Rosen, and has the first pick with Murray available, Kingsbury told at the Scouting Combine that he and Rosen are on the same page.He knows where he stands Brian Burns Jersey , Kingsbury said of Rosen. Hes a smart guy and he understands thats a comment made a long time ago prior to a college football game.Still, Kingsbury doesnt deny that hes a big fan of Murray.Kylers a tremendous athlete, quarterback, one of the better ones I ever recruited out of high school, Kingsbury said. Hes pretty special. Hes one of the most dynamic athletes on the field regardless of position, and he can drop back, be mechanically sound and hurt you from the pocket.If the Cardinals love Murray, they can have him. But for now, anyway, theyre talking about Rosen as their franchise quarterback.

ROCKY RIVER Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , Ohio (AP) Kareem Hunt work toward redemption.On Sunday, he showed the running back that hes got his full support.Kitchens and general manager John Dorsey surprised Hunt by attending his baptism at True Vine Missionary Baptist Church on Clevelands east side. Hunt, who was suspended eight games by the NFL for two physical altercations, including one where he shoved and kicked a woman, said last week he wanted to feel reborn.Kitchens said Hunt was stunned to see him and Dorsey.Just wondering what the hell we were doing there, Kitchens said of Hunts reaction on Monday while speaking at the Browns 20th annual golf outing at Westwood Country Club. I think he was pretty surprised. We care about Kareem as a person. We went there for Kareem Hunt as the person and not the football player. The thing we did yesterday was not about football at all.Hunt was not available for comment, but he was one of several current and former Browns players to take part in the event, which raises money for education initiatives supported by the Cleveland Browns Foundation. Quarterback Baker Mayfield http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authen...n-banogu-jersey , who recently shaved off his thick beard for his upcoming wedding, also played.The Browns were criticized for signing Hunt to a one-year contract as a free agent in February following his release by the Kansas City Chiefs, who said the 23-year-old lied to them about his actions during an altercation with a woman in a Cleveland hotel hallway early last year.Since coming home, Hunt has been speaking to high school students and other troubled youth in the Cleveland area. He told reporters last week that his main message to youngsters is to make better decisions.Kitchens is impressed with Hunts willingness to be vulnerable and use his mistakes as a teaching tool.Theyre going to make bad decisions, but the key is to learn from those decisions, he said. One of the most truest forms of bravery is showing your scars. You show your scars so people dont make the same mistakes that you make. And Kareem has done an exceptional job of showing his scars out in the public, and some of these schools and things hes visited without any advertisement at all. Hes chosen to do that to show his scars so maybe the kids in his surroundings dont make the same mistake.Hunt has promised hes going to make the most of the second chance. Hes kept his word to this point, and Kitchens said his confidence has grown that Hunt will stay on track.Ive gotten to know Kareem Parris Campbell Jersey , and you know Kareem understands the things that have happened happened, and nobodys going to dispute that, Kitchens said. But he also understands its a new day for you, its a new day for me every time we wake up, and you either get better or you get worse during the course of that day. Hes doing a good job of just staying in the moment and continuing to strive to get better and making good choices each and every day.I think (being baptized) yesterday was just another step for him to do that. Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb took some criticism last month for saying current Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz would become a former Eagles quarterback if he doesnt at least get to the NFC Championship Game within the next two years. McNabb thinks that criticism is unfair.McNabb said on 97.5 The Fanatic that when he makes media appearances hes acting as an objective analyst, and he shouldnt be expected to talk up the Eagles.If Im an analyst and a question is presented to me, Im supposed to answer the way I see fit,�? McNabb said http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/miles-boykin-jersey-cheap , via Philly.com. Sometimes when its certain people, we want to judge it or we want to have a different type of emotional feel to their answer because of who it is. And thats unfair.McNabb also declared himself an Eagle for life,�? even though his last two seasons were in Washington and Minnesota. His relationship with Eagles fans, however, has been strained in retirement.

Melvin Gordon remains out of training camp Kendall Sheffield Jersey , wanting a new deal that pays him more than the $10 million the Chargers are offering or a trade. Gordons backups Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson are taking advantage of Gordons absence.Definitely, [a good opportunity] for all of us, Jackson said Thursday after a joint practice with the Rams, via NFL.com. Obviously when [Gordons] here, he gets the majority of the first-team reps. Just for us to be able to mesh with the offensive line and all those guys. The more reps you get http://www.falconscheapshops.com/cheap-aut...cominsky-jersey , the more comfortable you are playing with the guys around you.Jackson and Ekeler took over the running back duties in the four games Gordon missed for injury last season, and the Chargers went 4-0. Ekeler had 958 total yards and six touchdowns last season in his second season, while Jackson had 341 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie a year ago.Theyre working hard, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. [Jackson] is doing a good job, and Austin had a couple of nice runs today. Im really happy with the development of some of these young guys.The Chargers have six running backs on their 90-player roster, with Gordon on the did not report list. Gordons absence has given the backs who are in camp Even if [Gordon] was here Qadree Ollison Jersey , wed have the same mentality, Ekeler said. We wish he was here. Shoot, he would help our team. Hes a Pro Bowl running back. But even if he was here, wed still have to move forward, and even if hes not here we still have to move forward. MIAMI (AP) New England Patriots defensive play-caller Brian Flores is taking a break from his Super Bowl preparations to meet with the Miami Dolphins, who are expected to hire him as head coach after the title game.The meeting Wednesday was Flores second with the Dolphins. He was the first candidate interviewed for the job by owner Stephen Ross and general manager Chris Grier on Jan. 4 Rashan Gary Jersey , and they targeted him a week later as their choice to succeed Adam Gase.No agreement can become final until after the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, when Flores defense will be tested by the NFCs highest-scoring team, the Los Angeles Rams.Flores has begun work to assemble a staff, and front-runners include former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell as assistant head coach and Packers assistant Patrick Graham as defensive coordinator. Some Dolphins assistants are expected to be retained.Gase was fired after going 7-9 in his third season with Miami and then hired as coach of the New York Jets.Flores has spent his entire 11-year coaching career with New England and is now their linebackers coach. He took over defensive play-calling in 2018 after the departure of defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, who became coach of the Detroit Lions.

The Latest on NFL free agency (all times EDT):11:15 p.m.A person with knowledge of the decision tells have agreed to terms with Miami linebacker Cameron Wake on a three-year deal worth $23 million with $10 million guaranteed.The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the signings wont be official until the NFLs new year begins Wednesday. ESPN.com first reported the deal.A five-time Pro Bowler Ugo Amadi Jersey , Wake has 98 career sacks in 10 seasons with the Dolphins. Wake, who turned 37 in January, had six sacks last season.With the Titans, he will help replace retired linebacker Brian Orakpo and linebacker Derrick Morgan, whos due to be a free agent.The Titans also agreed to terms earlier Tuesday with guard Rodger Saffold with a four-year deal worth $44 million with $22.5 million guaranteed, two people familiar with the agreement told the AP. Saffold Dwayne Haskins Jersey , who played left guard the past three seasons for the Los Angeles Rams, is expected to replace Quinton Spain, who becomes a free agent Wednesday.The Titans are looking to better protect Marcus Mariota and improve an offensive line that helped allow 47 sacks last season. Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan asked Saffold on Twitter on Monday if he wanted to be best friends, and Saffold responded Tuesday hes ready to be best friends and create something special. Reporting by Teresa M. Walker Corey Liuget and Darius Philon departed the Chargers this offseason. That leaves the team in need of someone to step up and fill the void left by two defensive tackles who combined for 813 snaps last season.The Chargers selected Justin Jones in the third round of the 2018 draft with this in mind.I feel like Im able to make that next step, Jones said, via Ricky Henne of the team website. I feel I am going to make that next step. I put in a lot of work this offseason. I put in a lot of extra work with the guys after workouts and everything. Just getting my mind right D.K. Metcalf Jersey , studying film. Taking the areas that I needed to improve on, just making those things better and just helping the guys out in my room just like theyre helping me.Jones played 300 defensive snaps in 15 games, making 26 tackles and half a sack. He played an even bigger role in the postseason, starting both games and making six tackles and a sack.He spent the offseason doing a bunch of different things, including changing his diet, boxing http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/aut...y-barton-jersey , swimming and riding a bicycle.I know that, him coming back into a familiar environment for a second year and some of the offseason things that he did I think he kind of pared down his training to what he felt like would help him after being a year in the system, Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. He looks really good coming back. Were excited just to see how far hes developed.

Yet Renell Wren Jersey , they do not know if their star running back will join them at AT&T Stadium.Ezekiel Elliott appears no closer to returning.You focus on the guys who are here and the guys who are available, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday. You are confronted with a lot of those situations over the course of the year. Hopefully you have built your team in such a way that you can go with the next guy. We feel good about that next guy. We will have different injuries throughout the year. And we cant say, Aw, when is he coming back? You move on. You put the next guy in there.Zeke has been a really good player for us. We love him as a guy. We love him as a player. We want to get him back in here. Right now, we are going with the guys we have. When Zeke gets back here, we will get him integrated as quickly as we can, and he will be a big part of our team.The Cowboys have offered high praise for rookie Tony Pollard, and they signed veteran Alfred Morris. They also have rookie Mike Weber.They would rather have Elliott, who has led the league in rushing in two of his three seasons.Were going to play with what weve got, and what weve got is a damn good back in Tony Pollard http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-auth...l-jordan-jersey , right guard Zack Martin said, via David Moore of the . Obviously, we want [Elliott] out here, but were prepared to get ready for Week One.Garrett said the Cowboys will run the same offense whether Elliott is there or not for the season opener against the Giants.I think each of these guys is very capable of doing whatever we ask them to do, so I dont see it changing dramatically, Garrett said. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) There seems to be no limit to Saquon Barkleys upside.Just when it seems the New York Giants rookie running back has shown just about everything he can do on the football field, the second pick overall in the NFL draft finds another way to impress people.Take a look at Sundays 30-27 overtime win over the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears.While Barkley failed to score for only the fourth time 12 games, he rushed for 125 yards on 24 carries and helped set up 13 points.His 22-yard run on a third-and-23 draw play set up a team-record 57-yard field goal by Aldrick Rosas on the final play of the half. The play that had everyone talking was his 17-yard catch and run that ended with his hurdle over former Penn State teammate Adrian Amos. It led to a 1-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr .Finally, there was his 29-yard run on the first play from scrimmage in the overtime. Rosas capped the drive with a 44-yard field goal that provided the winning margin when the Giants defense stopped Chicago on the final series.I said it early and I really believe it T.J. Hockenson Jersey , hes got a generational spirit in terms of how he competes, and I have not been WE have not been disappointed in (any) way, coach Pat Shurmur said of Barkley on Monday. Hes extremely talented running the ball, catching the ball, he blocks well, were doing what we can to give him the football so he has an impact on the game, and I think he has.Barkleys statistics are impressive.His 954 yards rushing are third in the NFL behind Todd Gurley (1,175) of the Rams and Ezekiel Elliott (1,150) of the Cowboys. He has exceeded 100 yards from scrimmage in 11 of 12 games and his 100-yard game rushing Sunday was his third in a row and fifth of the season.Catching three passes for 21 yards also gave Barkley 74 catches, tying tight end Jeremy Shockey (2002) for the second-highest total by a Giants rookie. Beckham holds the franchise rookie record with 91 in 2014.Barkley has downplayed his statistics all season http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authen...ni-tavai-jersey , but he knows the significance of running for 1,000 yards. He would need 46 yards Sunday against Washington to hit the mark.It would be special because obviously one, its the NFL, and two, when you get 1,000 yards, its not just yourself getting 1,000 yards, its your team getting 1,000 yards. Its the offense and especially the offensive line Will Harris Jersey , Barkley said.The biggest adjustment Barkley has had to make this season is dealing with losing. New York was 1-7. It has now won three of four since its bye week, including Sundays game in which it blew a 10-point lead in the final 1:13 of the fourth quarter.However, the Giants found a way to win in overtime.It just put everything in perspective from all the hard work that weve been putting in all season to go out there and beat a really good team and who was playing lights out up to that game or even in that game, they played really well, too, Barkley said. Definitely gives you confidence, and even though the season hasnt been going how we want it to go.Barkley now has 1,556 yards from scrimmage, so he needs 444 yards to become the third rookie in league history to reach 2,000 yards from scrimmage. Eric Dickerson set the record of 2 http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authen...n-bryant-jersey ,212 in 1983, while Edgerrin James had 2,139 in 1981.Barkley said its hard to describe some of the things he does on the field. The jump over Amos was on instinct.Some things you cant explain and I give a lot of credit to God in a situation like that, my genetics, my mom and dad, the 21-year-old Barkley said. But a lot of that is also hard work, training my body to when youre put in those positions to be able to make those cuts and make those moves.NOTES: Giants starting LB Tae Davis had a walking boot on his left foot (ankle). WR Sterling Shepard (ribs) said an MRI showed tissue damage. He expects to play Sunday. Shurmur had his doubts either TE Evan Engram (hamstring) or LB Lorenzo Carter (hip) would return this week. Rookie Kyle Lauletta was the backup Sunday and veteran Alex Tanney was inactive. Shurmur said that probably will be the same order this week. Lauletta had been inactive for the first 11 games. Shurmur reiterated Manning is his starter.

On Tuesday http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/m...se-blair-jersey , multiple reports emerged indicating that the Buccaneers and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh are finalizing a one-year deal. A day later, no deal has been done.The official NFL transactions report for Wednesday does not reveal that Suh has joined the Buccaneers. no deal is done until its done.Theres no reason to currently think it wont be done. But, still, its not done.If/when it is done, it will be interesting to see what the deal is worth. The fact that the initial reports didnt include a number suggests that the number wont be eye-popping. Theres also a chance that the initial financial reporting will describe the deal as being worth up to a certain amount http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/cody-barton-jersey , a subtle effort to overstate the deal by including any incentives within the base value.A separate question, as mentioned by Charean Williams on Wednesdays , is the question of why the Bucs want Suh? Gerald McCoy, who was cut by the Buccaneers on Monday, was more effective as a pass rusher in 2018, and he didnt have Aaron Donald next to him. Also, Suh didnt have the same spark in the regular season that he displayed when he finally had a chance to pursue a Super Bowl championship. Will he play hard during the week-in http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/phil-haynes-jersey , week-out grind of the 2019 regular season? Although it hasnt been officially announced by the NFL, the Thanksgiving slate of games appears to be set: Bears at Lions in the early game, Bills at Cowboys in the mid-afternoon, and Saints at Falcons at night.Despite a previous report that the Dolphins would visit Dallas on Thanksgiving, its Buffalo traveling to Dallas on CBS. Thats a rematch of two past Super Bowls, and the NFL is emphasizing games with historical significance in its 100th season.Another matchup with historical significance is Bears-Lions, which will be the early game on CBS. The Bears have played 35 times on Thanksgiving and have been a frequent opponent of the Lions http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.co...-edwards-jersey , the NFLs longtime Thanksgiving hosts. As reported earlier today, the Saints are visiting Atlanta in the prime time game on NBC. Thats a rematch of last years Thanksgiving prime time game, and its likely to be a big one in the NFC South race.

Tyreek Hill said nothing about the troubling remark that sparked Hills banishment from the balance of the Chiefs offseason workout program.You need to be terrified of me too Deandre Baker Jersey , bitch, Hill said to Crystal Espinal during an argument regarding whether Hills young son respects Hill or is terrified of him.PFT asked the league for an explanation regarding the decision not to discipline Hill despite this comment, which was made by Hill to the same woman he admittedly assaulted while she was pregnant, in 2014.That audio tape was reviewed as part of the overall investigation, which also included speaking to multiple people, including family members on both sides and Tyreek Hill, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy wrote in an email to PFT. In addition, other information was gathered over the last four months.When viewed in the context of the full 11-minute, 27-second audio recording and all other information gathered, the statement did not rise to a level of warranting discipline under the personal conduct policy.Thats the most surprising aspect of the NFLs decision. While the evidence regarding allegations of child abuse or child endangerment Oshane Ximines Jersey , if any, apparently was inconclusive at best, the threat made by Hill to Espinal was documented, and Hills own lawyer admitted that Hill said what he said. Indeed, Hills lawyer called the comment unacceptable and inexcusable, of course in a letter sent to the NFL in early May.The NFL ultimately decided that, for the purposes of the Personal Conduct Policys clear prohibition on [a]ctual or threatened physical violence, the comment was acceptable and excusable, and that it ultimately nothing that would require even a fine of Tyreek Hill. Carlos Carrasco glanced briefly at his right elbow, which no longer shows any signs of bruising.

Hes healthy and the Cleveland Indians seem to be getting better and better.

Carrasco returned from the disabled list and returned to the win column as Jose Ramirez and Edwin Encarnacion drove in three runs apiece Julian Love Jersey , leading the Indians to their fifth straight victory, 10-4 over the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

Making his first start since getting smacked with a line drive hit by Minnesotas Joe Mauer on June 16, Carrasco (9-5) shook off two homers measuring over 900 combined feet in the first two innings. The right-hander struck out seven in 5 1/3 innings and showed minimal rust despite the layoff.

He gave up a couple of home runs, said shortstop Francisco Lindor, who stole home and scored three times. But, he settled down. He started making pitches. He started attacking guys. Throwing that curveball for a strike. Hes one of the best. Hes very successful when hes doing those things. Im glad hes back.

The AL Central-leading Indians have won eight straight home games. They improved to an MLB-best 56-21 at Progressive Field since the All-Star break last season.

Matt Olson and Dustin Fowler connected against Carrasco, but As couldnt match Clevelands firepower and lost for just the second time in 10 games since June 25.

Theyre a hot-hitting team and when they get on a roll, a lot of good things happen, As manager Bob Melvin said. Not only do they hit, they put pressure on you on the bases Darius Slayton Jersey , as well. Thats why theyre as good as they are.

Carrascos comeback didnt start ideally as he was quickly in a 2-0 hole.

Fowler connected on his fourth pitch, driving it 467 feet into the lower seats in right for his sixth homer this season and first of his career leading off a game.

Olson opened the second inning with a 438-foot homer into the shrubs in center field, giving him 19 this season and 43 in 157 career games the fifth-fastest pace in MLB history. Only Rudy York (51), Mark McGwire (49), Gary Sanchez (48) and Ryan Braun (47) have been more prodigious out of the gate than Olson.

But while he struggled to locate his fastball, Carrasco used his curve to keep the As off-balance.

Carrasco admitted being a little jittery on a ball hit toward him, but hes now convinced the time off could help him in the long run.

You dont want to go to the DL, miss a couple weeks in there, but at the end of the day, its going to be worth it T.J. Hockenson Jersey , he said. From now to the last game of the season, Im just going to go every five days, take care of myself, then well see in the end.

Oakland closed to 6-4 in the seventh and had the bases loaded with two out. But Neil Ramirez struck out As cleanup hitter Khris Davis to end the threat.

The Indians then put it away with four runs in the bottom half, highlighted by Lindor swiping home on the back end of a double steal. With one out, Ramirez broke for second and Lindor waited for catcher Jonathans Lucroys throw to go through before taking off and scoring with a headfirst slide.

As soon as I become a runner, Im trying to score, Lindor said. As soon as I saw him (Lucroy) stand up and see the balls rotation, I just took off.

Carrascos season nearly took a dramatic turn for the worst when he was struck by Mauers wicked comebacker. Luckily, he escaped with just a bad bruise and manager Terry Francona felt fortunate to have his No. 2 starter back.

When I saw him http://www.lionscheapstore.com/jahlani-tavai-jersey-cheap , my eyes lit up, Francona said before the game. Hes one of our mainstays.

RUN, EDWIN, RUN

Encarnacion ignored third-base coach Mike Sarbaughs signal to stop and scored on Jason Kipnis RBI single in the second.

It was his only option.

I was coming hot, the slugger said with a smile. Too late, I couldnt stop.

BIG O

The Indians have scored 10 or more runs an AL-high 11 times this season.

TRAINERS ROOM

Athletics: LHP Brett Anderson (strained shoulder) threw a pregame bullpen session and could be activated this weekend. The 30-year-old has been on the disabled list since May 19.

Indians: Francona said OF Lonnie Chisenhall will miss considerable time with his strained left calf. He was placed on the disabled list Tuesday in Kansas City. Francona said the club should have a better sense of how long Chisenhall will be out once he is seen by team doctors.

UP NEXT

Corey Kluber, who is 7-1 with a 1.60 ERA at home, tries to become the first Cleveland pitcher to win 13 games before the All-Star break since Gaylord Perry (15) in 1974. Oaklands Edwin Jackson pitched into the seventh and beat the Indians on June 30.

Teams are scoring at a record pace. The number of points (4 Qadree Ollison Jersey ,489), touchdowns (504) and touchdown passes (328) are the most in league history through six weeks.And, games are coming down to the end.Sixty-nine percent of all games (64 of 93) have been within one score in the fourth quarter. A total of 54 games have been decided by one score eight points or less. Thats tied for the most in league history at this point. There have been 28 games decided by three points or fewer, second-most at this point. At least one game has reached overtime the first six weeks for the first time since extra time was instituted in 1974.I dont think there has been a better time to be an NFL fan Brian Burns Jersey , Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday. The quality of the games and the enjoyment that comes with that, I hear it from the fans all the time that is No. 1 for them. From our standpoint, we look at this as a great moment for us, the tremendous growth and the tremendous popularity of our game.One of the key factors contributing to the scoring output is the emphasis on calling defensive holding penalties. The total is up to 36 from 11 through six weeks last season. The increase in roughing-the-passer penalties and eliminating use of the helmet to initiate hits are also important factors.League officials also point to an influx of talented young quarterbacks. However http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/greg-little-jersey , scoring could taper off once defenses make adjustments and weather could affect games later in the season.Heres a look inside more numbers going into Week 7:MORE THIELEN: Vikings receiver Adam Thielen has at least 100 yards receiving in each of Minnesotas first six games this season. Only Charley Hennigan had more with seven in 1961 for Houston. Thielens 58 catches lead the NFL and hes on pace for 155 receptions.BREEZING UP: Drew Brees broke Peyton Mannings career record for yards passing last week and now is one TD pass away from joining Manning (539), Brett Favre (508) and Tom Brady (501) in the 500 TD club. The Saints visit the Ravens on Sunday.CHASING LT: Rams running back Todd Gurley has 11 TDs rushing and receiving. Hes on pace for 29. Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson set the record with 31 in 2006 for the Chargers.THE KICKING GOAT: Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri is 10 points away from breaking Morten Andersons scoring record. Anderson had 2,544 points on 565 field goals and 849 extra points. Vinatieri has 2,535 points and already broke Andersons record for most field goals. Hes at 570 and counting.PATS STATS: Patrick Mahomes has 18 TD passes in his first seven career games. Only Kurt Warner (21) and Deshaun Watson (20) had more through eight.BIG PLAY TY: Mahomes teammate on the Chiefs Will Grier Jersey , wide receiver Tyreek Hill, already has 14 career TDs of 50 yards or more. Only Gale Sayers (16) and Randy Moss (15) had more before age 25. Alex Smith said last month that he expected to be able to stop wearing an external fixator on his right leg in July and the Washington quarterbacks hope has been realized.Smith had been wearing the fixator for months in order to help promote healing in the bones that he broke last year, but his wife Elizabeth revealed that it is now off in a post to Instagram. One picture shows Smith holding the equipment in his right hand and the caption makes it clear that the couple views this as a big step in the healing process.The last 8 months have been nothing short of crazy. Although its not over, today is a big milestone. We are shedding the weight Alex has been carrying (literally and figuratively). Its one step closer to the goal. The resilience http://www.carolinapanthersteamonline.com/...n-miller-jersey , determination and mental fortitude of this man is unmatched.Smith credited the fixator with allowing him to heal and walk again and that also allows him to hold onto his goal of returning to the playing field. Hell need to check off a lot of other boxes to see that through, but hes gotten one part of the journey out of the way.

NASHVILLE Jawaan Taylor Jersey , Tenn. (AP) their offensive line woes with the preseason winding down.The Titans, who will be without three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan for the first four games of the regular season, gave up seven sacks Sunday night in an 18-6 loss to Pittsburgh in their third exhibition game. Coach Mike Vrabel even pulled Marcus Mariota after the quarterback was sacked in the end zone for a safety on the second play of his second series to protect his starter.I hope that we can get them fixed, Vrabel said Monday. Thats why we coach, thats why we practice, thats why we try to instruct the guys that everybodys on the same page. I really do mean that this is all 11 guys that are on the field.The performance was painfully reminiscent of last October when Baltimore set a franchise-record Baltimore set a franchise record with 11 sacks. Protecting Mariota has been a major focus after he was sacked a career-worst 42 times and missed three starters due to injuries in 2018.The clock is ticking on the Titans (1-2) who open the season Sept. 8 at Cleveland after wrapping up the preseason Thursday night in Chicago (1-2). It also doesnt help that the Titans arent ready to name their starter at right guard yet either.Were going to wait, Vrabel said. Obviously, were going to try to continue to prepare and get guys in there and get some sort of rotation that we feel like we can go into the season with and be successful.Kevin Pamphile started against Pittsburgh at right guard Josh Oliver Jersey , then Jamil Douglas took over when Pamphile moved to left tackle. Lewan, who lost the appeal of his suspension last week, didnt get in the game until later as the Titans work to prepare veteran Dennis Kelly to play left tackle while Lewan is out.Vrabel said Pamphile has done some good things and has some areas to improve.Rookie Nate Davis, the Titans third-round draft pick out of Charlotte, finally was seen in the open portion of practice last week after being out since leaving practice early Aug. 1.Asked Monday if the Titans best starting offensive line includes Ben Jones, who has started every game with Tennessee at center, and third-year lineman Corey Levin, Vrabel said theyre always looking for the combination that gives them the best chance to succeed.Well continue to look at that this week Deandre Baker Jersey , Vrabel said.The Steelers got their first sack along with a safety when Stephon Tuitt got to Mariota in the end zone after going up the middle at Jones and left guard Rodger Saffold, the Titans big free agent signing in March to bolster the line. Saffold said he got picked from the right side on that play.The good thing is this is a preseason game so you can get it fixed, Saffold said.The Titans better with Myles Garrett, Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson waiting in Cleveland.Notes: Vrabel said OLB Harold Landry III is working his way and could be seen at practice this week, though the coach has not specified if the linebacker is dealing with an injury. Rookie defensive tackle Trysten Hill had some red flags the Cowboys had to satisfy before taking him in the second round. Hill started only one game for the University of Central Florida last season after starting 13 in 2017 under the previous coaching staff headed by Scott Frost. Hill had to explain why.We won a lot of games, Hill said Friday. We did have a coaching change. That stuff happens. Thats life. I realized that. Every coach from high school until now had my best interest in mind. There were two different coaching staffs. They both wanted me to perform my best, and I did.Hill, who had 36 tackles http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/oshane-ximines-jersey , three sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss in 2018, had disagreements with the new coaching staff after Josh Heupel replaced Frost. Questions arose about whether Hill was coachable.Hill said Friday that got fueled the wrong way and pointed out he has maintained a relationship with Heupel and UCF since finishing his career.I think there was some emotion involved, Hill said. Some things I didnt do as well, looking back on it, as I did. That is what it is. I cant go back in the past and change that. Ever since then, I have gone back to UCF and talked and been able to go out to practice. I have talked to the coach. I know having my roots at UCF is really important, and I want to keep establishing that.Hill, though Julian Love Jersey , can credit Frost for him ending up with the Cowboys. Frost, now at Nebraska, vouched for his former star player with Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli.Marinelli was the Buccaneers defensive line coach in 2003 when Frost played his last season in the NFL.

Tom Brady a chance to get work in with the teams post-Rob Gronkowski tight end group.How things are going with that group Benjamin Watson D.K. Metcalf Jersey , Matt LaCosse, Stephen Anderson, Ryan Izzo and Lance Kendricks was a topic at Bradys press conference on Wednesday. Brady was asked how significant the loss of Gronkowski feels right now.To replace great players, its not like you just pick another one off the tight end tree. You cant just go out back, Brady said. Youve got to find guys that come in and want to put the work in and want to try and contribute. Between the guys we have out here now, which is Ben, and Matt, Stephen, Ryan Izzo http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , Lance who we just got those guys are trying to do everything they can do. Theyre all new players, so weve got to figure out how to get them up to speed to what our expectations are, the level of competition on a daily basis.Watson wont be part of the group for the first four games due to a suspension and fullback James Develin could factor into the Patriots thinking about how to position everyone now that Gronkowski has moved on to other endeavors. How all of those pieces fit will be one of many things to watch when New England kicks off their season against the Steelers on Sunday Night Football. The NFC East is getting interesting again.In the blue corner, Giants G.M. Dave Gettleman. In the red (ok, burgundy) corner, Washington president Bruce Allen.Gettleman, defending the decision to use the sixth overall pick on quarterback Daniel Jones, said over the weekend that he knows for a fact that two other teams would have drafted Jones before the Giants were on the clock again at No. 17. Someone (the Giants) then leaked that those two teams were Denver and Washington.Allen, appearing on NFL Network Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , responded to the notion that Gettleman had actual knowledge of Washingtons draft preferences.We picked the player we wanted to pick, Allen said, via NFL.com. Im almost positive Dave has no clue what our draft board would be. I dont know which draft boards he knows, but he doesnt know ours.Gettleman doesnt know any, absent espionage. Thats the biggest flaw in his gratuitous for a fact claim. No G.M. knows another teams draft board unless there has been spying.So why does Gettleman insist that two teams between No. 6 and No. 17 would have taken Jones? Thats better than the truth, which is that the Giants feared being leapfrogged at No. 17 by a team smart enough to realize that the Giants were in the Daniel Jones business, given the effort to get the fans and media comfortable with the possibility of Daniel Jones being drafted by the Giants.By floating the Daniel Jones trial balloon, the Giants backed themselves into a corner. Thats the truth, but Gettleman cant or wont admit it.Regardless http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , if Daniel Jones becomes a franchise quarterback, it wont matter whether he was pick No. 6 or No. 17. Conversely, if Jones doesnt become a franchise quarterback, it wont matter whether he was pick No. 17 or No. 6.The best news is that New York and Washington will continue to play each other twice per year every year, with Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins going head-to-head and their progress (or otherwise) being compared on an apples-to-apples basis.

They had 212 yards and 10 points in the second half.Patriots coach Bill Belichick credited offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for a second-half adjustment that finally got New England into the end zone.McDaniels made a great adjustment Will Grier Jersey , Belichick said. We talked about that on the sideline. We went to a two tight end offense, but we spread them out. We were able to complete some passes to Julian [Edelman] and then to Rob [Gronkowski] at the goal line to score [on the next play]. It was really well executed. It was not something we had anticipated doing a lot in this game. We did it against Kansas City, but it was kind of right time http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-aut...n-miller-jersey , right situation. We had good protection to be able to make those throws. Tom [Brady] did a good job getting the ball to the open guy. That was a great throw he made to Gronkowski to get down to the 2-yard line.Josh McDaniels did an outstanding job of play calling and eventually finding things that worked and made some big drives for us. If the Cardinals were hoping to hustle up a market for Josh Rosen, the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft did them no favors.After the Giants took Duke quarterback Daniel Jones sixth overall and Washington went with Dwayne Haskins 15th, the list of potential destinations got considerably smaller.Those two were among the most-mentioned destinations for the quarterback displaced by No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray.The other leading suitor Jordan Scarlett Jersey , the Dolphins, used their first-rounder on Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, and clearly need someone other than Ryan Fitzpatrick for this year and beyond.Were investigating all avenues Jonah Williams Jersey , Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier said Thursday. Im not going to talk about anything going on. The draft is still going on; but were looking at all options at every position.Theres also the matter of Missouris Drew Lock still sitting on the board in the second round if needy teams are interested, and the Cardinals stated plan to not give Rosen away has sprung a leak.Teams looking for long-term replacements such as the Chargers and possibly the Patriots might still be interested, but at this point Arizonas best chance to extra value from the guy they traded up to get last year might be to wait for an injury in some other teams camp.But that just underscores how badly the Cardinals have mismanaged the position http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-auth...w-sample-jersey , after spending heavily in free agency to sign Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon, and then giving up a third and a fifth to move up five spots to take Rosen 10th overall last year.

For nearly a decade http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authen...y-ridley-jersey , NFL Network has unveiled during the slow time the top 100 players in the league, as voted on by players. at some point, it became clear that those who vote simply list their personal top 20, and the league takes the votes and figures it out from there.This year, it became clear that the league-owned network had changed the procedure for unveiling the top 100, shifting from one show per week during the slow time, with 10 players per week being unveiled, to 10 players per night on consecutive nights, starting after training camps began to open.Its unclear why NFLN changed the approach. If the goal was to generate more interest in the series, it didnt work. If anything, subsuming the countdown within the launch of training camps pushed the show farther into the background.Then theres the question of whether anyone even noticed that the show wasnt televised during its normal spot on the calender, and whether that was part of a broader effort by the league to assess whether anyone would miss it, if it goes away for good. Or, as the case may be, if it goes away until after a new labor deal is negotiated.The league already has begun tightening the belt at NFL Network, dumping certain studio shows in anticipation of (or to create the impression of) an eventual work stoppage. By dumping the Top 100 show Jonah Williams Jersey , the league would be eliminating a series that celebrates the best players, a fairly aggressive passive-aggressive shot at the rank and file.Whether it continues or not, the voting process continues to be flawed. This years list has Aaron Donald at No. 1, Drew Brees at No. 2, Khalil Mack at No. 3, Patrick Mahomes at No. 4, Todd Gurley at No. 5, and Tom Brady at No. 6. It makes sense, when considering that the votes are typically collected during the preceding regular season. But in this specific context the approach of a new season it simply makes no sense. Mahomes at No. 4? Gurley, with his arthritic knee, at No. 5?Brees, who seems to be in the process of losing his footrace with Father Time, at No. 2? Brady, who has stolen Father Times giant hourglass and repeately whacked him over the head with it, at No. 6?As of last November or so, those selections could be justified. By February and Elgton Jenkins Jersey , more importantly, by late July they simply no longer hold. For 2019, the jury is out on Brees and Gurley, at best. And Mahomes should be no lower than No. 2, given his full body of work in his first year as a starter.Still, nobody seems to be all that fired up about it, because nobody really seems to care all that much about it. If come next year the NFL decides to lose it from the schedule, it likely wont be regarded as much of a loss. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)Benched earlier this season and questioned for years, Tyrod Taylor and Blake Bortles have a chance to change public perception on the NFLs playoff stage. Taylor helped Buffalo end the longest, current postseason drought in North American pro sports (17 years) while Bortles led Jacksonville to its first playoff berth since the 2007 season. Whichever one wins the next game could do wonders to his image. The Jaguars (10-6) host the Bills (9-7) in an AFC wild-card game Sunday, a win-or-go-home matchup that means as much to the quarterbacks as anyone. The Bills were in talks with free agent Brian Hoyer in March and ready to part ways with Taylor until he agreed to restructure his contract extension and make it a two-year deal worth $30.5 million. He has one year remaining, but the team could save $10 million by moving on after this season. No one would be surprised to see it happen, especially after coach Sean McDermott benched Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman in November. Peterman threw five first-half interceptions in a 54-24 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, and Taylor has been the teams starter since . I dont focus on things that I cant control, and Im going to continue to be that way http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/chea...rnberger-jersey , said Taylor, who has 14 touchdown passes and four interceptions this season. All I can control right now is my preparation, my focus, my work ethic to putting it all in for this week. Its a one-game season right now, and thats for everyone. I cant allow distractions or thinking too far ahead. Bortles has taken a similar approach despite constant bashing and not just the typical criticism from fans and media. Tennessee defensive end Jurrell Casey told a Nashville radio station this week, As long as Bortles is back there, if the ballgame is in his hands, hes going to choke. Casey tried to clarify his comments two days later, writing on Twitter, Chill, yall. I was just hyping our defense. If we put the pressure, some QBs will choke. Hearing talk such as that is nothing new for Bortles, whos been publicly ripped by Houston defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, Seattle safety Earl Thomas and Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the past two months. Players or peers talking about you is a little new, said Bortles, who is a big reason Jacksonville is hosting its first playoff game since 1999. Ive never been somebody that felt that is the way you should handle things Dexter Williams Jersey , but guys are different. I had the chance, was fortunate enough to play for George OLeary in college and playing for Coach OLeary, you learned very quickly how to take criticism. I had four years of practice doing that, so theres nobody that can say anything worse to me than he did. I got benched every other day. Jaguars coach Doug Marrone actually benched Bortles in the preseason, stirring speculation that his days in Jacksonville were numbered. But Bortles regained the starting job a week later and has been better than expected since , although five interceptions in the past two games both losses have some questioning him again. His first playoff game Taylor went to the 2013 Super Bowl as Baltimores backup could leave outsiders looking at him differently. Playing a playoff game in Jacksonville hasnt happened in a while, so having that opportunity to play in front of our fans and our city and our stadium, I think, is awesome, Bortles said. I think everyone realizes its your last chance. If you lose, you go home, its over. Here are some other things to know about Buffalo and Jacksonville: STAR STATUS: Bills running back LeSean McCoy is questionable with a right ankle injury. McCoy said he was feeling a lot better Thursday, but declined to make any guarantees about playing. McCoy accounts for nearly a third of Buffalos offense. OLD FACE, NEW PLACE: Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus insists he harbors no ill will toward his former team. His actions might say otherwise. The 340-pound run-stopper will face the Bills for the first time since they traded him in October for a late-round draft pick. MARRONES MAKEOVER: Jaguars coach Doug Marrone bolted on Buffalo in 2014, opting out of his contract and getting $4 million to walk away. Marrone landed in Jacksonville and will face Buffalo in his first playoff game as a head coach. LONG TIME COMING: Jacksonvilles first home playoff game since January 2000 will be a packed house. The Jaguars sold every ticket available and even received permission to remove tarps covering four upper-deck sections to help satisfy demand.

The Vikings were paying for experience http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/trevon-wesco-jersey , among other things, when they backed up the truck for quarterback Kirk Cousins this offseason.But Cousins experience in games like the ones the Vikings play this weekend might not give them much confidence.Via Chris Tomasson of the , feeling as two years ago, when he could have led Washington to the playoffs. Instead, he threw two picks and lost the regular season finale to the Giants in 2016 to finish 8-7-1.I remember the feeling driving away from the game, Cousins said. I remember being disappointed, and I dont want to feel that again.The Vikings (8-6-1) can secure a playoff berth with a win or tie against the Bears, or an Eagles loss or tie against Washington. The fact the Bears still have a chance at a bye (with a win and a Rams loss) doesnt help Alexander Mattison Jersey , either.Its not complicated, Cousins said. I want to win. We want to win. We understand whats at stake. Theres no magic formula. Theres no button you can push, or hours you can put in to suddenly snap your fingers and guarantee a win. You do all you can, give everything you have.The Vikings just have to hope that everything Cousins has is enough. CINCINNATI (AP)Andy Dalton moved a little stiffly as he walked through the locker room on Monday, showing the effects of another tough day thats now the norm for the Bengals quarterback. The Bengals (3-4) know they have to protect Dalton much better to have any chance of getting back into the AFC North race. Up next: Road games three straight weeks against Jacksonville, Tennessee and Denver. Dalton was under steady pressure again during a 24-23 win over Indianapolis on Sunday. A struggling offensive line repeatedly allowed the Colts to blitz up the middle unblocked, forcing Dalton to get rid of the ball while taking another direct hit. He was sacked three times in the fourth quarter and spent a lot of time avoiding the rush. Dalton has been sacked 22 times in seven games, putting him on pace for the first 50-sack season of his seven-year career. We just have to keep making sure that everyone around him is playing up to his standard all the time http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/dru-samia-jersey , coach Marvin Lewis said Monday. They survived a game that could have ended their aspirations of catching the Steelers (6-2) atop the division. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap deflected a pass , caught it and ran 16 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, deciding the game. I dont know what wouldve happened in the game if he didnt make that play, defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said Monday. I dont think wed be sitting here as happy as we are today. Theyre not at all happy with the offenses inconsistency, due in large part to the offensive lines breakdowns. The Bengals have one of the worst running games in the league, hitting a new low in the victory over Indianapolis (2-6). Cincinnati managed only 58 yards rushing, including 10 yards on Daltons scrambles and 14 on a carry by receiver Alex Erickson. The three running backs combined for only 34 yards on 17 carries against a defense that was ranked second-to-last in the league in yards allowed. Bill Lazor took over as offensive coordinator after an 0-2 start and has been making changes to try to get more out of the running game, with little result so far. Often Daniel Jones Jersey , running backs are tackled soon after taking the handoff five running plays lost yards on Sunday. Bill is putting things together a little differently and theres adjustments were making, and were having to do them on the fly, Lewis said. DISPUTING THE CALL Lewis disagreed with a 15-yard penalty on Carl Lawson for roughing the passer late in the first half. The officials decided Lawson landed on Jacoby Brissett with his full weight after a pass was released. Lewis made his case with referee Jerome Boger at halftime. He did not drive him into the ground, Lewis said Monday. He didnt hit him with the helmet. ROSS OUTLOOK Lewis was noncommittal about whether first-round pick John Ross would be active for the game in Jacksonville. Ross played Sunday for the first time since the second week of the season, getting in for six plays without touching the ball. The receiver has been slowed by offseason shoulder surgery and a sprained left knee. He has yet to catch a pass he ran once and fumbled in his other appearance.

Dolphins defensive tackle Kendrick Norton lost his arm in a car wreck last week http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com/hu...-renfrow-jersey , but he hasnt lost his sense of humor. critical to stable condition, after the emergency surgery to remove his left arm.Nortons injury happened when his truck rolled over after colliding with a concrete barrier, coming to rest on its roof.The former seventh-round pick of the Panthers from Miami joined the Dolphins late last season. While hes still in the hospital, hes apparently in good spirits. His agent shared an exchange with former college teammate David Njoku.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="500" data-dnt="true">Big nort on FaceTime with with @David_Njoku80 Chief: Im coming to see you in a few daysBig nort: bring me a watch 🤣🤣🤣Nort still has his sense of humor 🙏🏼 malki kawa (@malkikawa) July 6, 2019</blockquote>That kind of attitude will help Norton in the coming months, along with support from his friends and teammates. Concrete barriers and chain-link fencing are going up around the site of the Super Bowl in downtown Minneapolis, where a contingent of local, state and national agencies is working to ensure that the game and dozens of related events are safe.

The downtown location of the Feb. 4 title game has presented challenges for authorities, who have had to get creative as they carved a secure perimeter around businesses and a major hospital near U.S. Bank Stadium. But its not the first time the Super Bowl has dealt with the challenges of a city center, and authorities who have spent roughly two years thinking about every possible scenario say they are prepared.

Were ready for anything that may come our way http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/m...se-blair-jersey , Minneapolis Police Commander Scott Gerlicher said. Its about not just feeling safe, but making sure people are in fact safe.

Gerlicher, whose department is overseeing security, said this Super Bowl will have the largest deployment of federal resources yet. Thats because Minneapolis has a relatively small department less than 900 officers compared with the roughly 5,000 in Houston, where last years game was held and needed more personnel.

Dozens of other cities are sending officers too, and the Minnesota National Guard has been activated. An additional 10,000 volunteers are being trained to spot suspicious activity.

Visitors can expect to see increased police patrols, bomb-sniffing dogs, helicopters, officers in tactical gear http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/cody-barton-jersey , and that chain-link and concrete fence around U.S. Bank Stadium.

Plenty of technology such as motion detectors, closed-circuit cameras and air particle sensors will be operating behind the scenes. Giant machines are being used to scan shipments to the stadium. Extra security cameras will be sprinkled around the city, and NFL-sanctioned events will have metal detectors. Teams will be in place to react to whatever comes up.

Our efforts are to make sure that its a warm and inviting atmosphere. But make no mistake about it there are tons of watchful eyes from the law enforcement and public safety sectors, said Alex Khu, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Minnesota and the federal coordinator for this years Super Bowl.

Because of the dense area around the stadium, some security screening will be happening off-site. They also had to figure out how to secure Super Bowl Live, a largely free-flowing, 10-day outdoor event thats open to the public. Meanwhile, some events are being held in nearby St. Paul and at the Mall of America in Bloomington, while team hotels, practice facilities and transportation to and from also must be secured.

Jeffrey Miller http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/phil-haynes-jersey , former senior vice president and chief security officer for the NFL, said each host city faces different challenges. In Minneapolis, perhaps the biggest is the weather. He said security staff may need to be doubled or tripled to keep people from being exposed to dangerous elements for a prolonged time.

Thats a challenge, and its a costly one you dont have if playing in San Diego, he said.

Miller said setting up a perimeter around a downtown venue is more difficult than setting one up around a stadium surrounded by parking lots. Architects, engineers and other experts are part of the planning. For fans, he said, there are advantages to being downtown and close to the action.

The NFL is really good at trying to balance security needs with the fan engagement part of the equation, he said.

Miller said officials also have to take into account recent world events meaning the possibility of a terror attack.

Joe Rivers, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI in Minneapolis, said a threat assessment for the game has included analyzing attacks around the world. He cited the May bombing of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.co...-edwards-jersey , England, the Oct. 1 shooting at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas and the Oct. 31 vehicle attack on a New York City bike path. Without providing detail, Rivers said authorities used those attacks to shape their plans.

Local history must also be considered. Minneapolis has seen dozens of young men travel to Somalia or Syria to join extremist groups over the past decade. There also has been a stabbing attack at a central Minnesota mall and a more recent bombing of a local mosque.

Its impossible for us to ignore the historical cases that weve had here and the type of threats that weve addressed, Rivers said.

He said there is no credible threat to the Super Bowl, and authorities are continuing to gather intelligence. Rivers said his main concerns are low-tech threats, such as someone driving a vehicle into or firing a weapon at a crowd.

Not to alarm anyone, but its not hard to come by weapons in this country and with where our venues are located and things like that, theres no way we can possibly secure every single floor of every single building that can see a venue or can overlook a crowd, so those are concerns, yes, he said.

Fans attending Super Bowl events can help by staying vigilant. In addition to calling 911 http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com/matt-gay-jersey , people who see something suspicious can call 1-800-CALL-FBI. In the event of something like the Boston Marathon bombing, the FBI has created a website where witnesses can upload videos and photos so the FBI can gather evidence quickly.

Obviously, the best case scenario is that we hope that we do all of this and no one never even realizes all the legwork that went into it on the front end, Rivers said. They just show up, have a good time, and leave and go home.&

He became only the third player in NFL history to repeat as defensive player of the year.Former Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor won back-to-back awards in 1981-82 Daniel Jones Jersey , and Texans defensive end J.J. Watt won the award in 2014-15.Donald won last year after making 11 sacks in 14 games and was rewarded with a $135 million extension in the offseason. He was even better this season with 20.5 sacks in 16 games, the most by an interior lineman in NFL history.Anytime youre rewarded for the success you have, youre going to be happy because you put the body of work in,�? Donald said earlier this week, via the . A lot of hard work. A lot of training. A lot of things you do behind the scenes.And to see you get rewarded, you know Quincy Williams II Jersey , youd be happy for that.Donald beat out Bears linebacker Khalil Mack, getting 45 of the 50 votes. Mack, who made 47 tackles, 12.5 sacks, six forced fumbles, four pass breakups Ryquell Armstead Jersey , 10 tackles for loss and two fumble recoveries after the Raiders traded him to Chicago, received the other five votes.Mack won the award in 2016. LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears signed kicker Cody Parkey to a four-year contract in March hoping he would give them the consistency they have lacked ever since they let Robbie Gould go.That didnt happen. And now, Parkey is out.A person familiar with the situation said Friday the NFC North champions have decided to release the embattled kicker after one season. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the move had not been announced. The NFL Network first reported the decision.Parkey made 23 of 30 field goals during the regular season for the third-lowest conversion rate in the NFL. He was 42 of 45 on extra points.Six of his misses, counting the playoffs, hit uprights Gardner Minshew II Jersey , including a 43-yard attempt in the closing seconds of the Bears wild-card loss to Philadelphia at Soldier Field that also ricocheted off the crossbar.Parkeys appearance on the Today show a few days later helped erase any remaining doubts about his future in Chicago. It clearly did not sit well with the Bears hierarchy.We always talk about a we and not a me thing, and we always talk as a team, we win as a team, we lose as a team, coach Matt Nagy said in January. You know, I just Christian Wilkins Jersey , I didnt necessarily think that that was too much of a we thing.Parkey also nailed uprights four times while missing two field goals and two extra points in a victory over Detroit at Soldier Field on Nov. 11. He hit one on a missed PAT at Minnesota in the regular-season finale.In October, Parkey missed wide right on a potential winning 53-yarder in overtime at Miami. Jason Sanders then kicked a 47-yard field goal as time expired in OT to lift the Dolphins to a 31-28 victory.The Bears have struggled in the kicking game since they let Gould their career scoring leader go just before the start of the 2016 season. In the three years since then, Chicago has converted 57 of 75 field goals.Gould is set to become a free agent March 13. There has been speculation in Chicago about a reunion with the Bears after spending one season with the New York Giants and the past two with San Francisco.Goulds wife is from the Chicago area, and they still live there with their three young sons.The kicking game was one of the few sore spots in the Bears breakout season. They went 12-4 to win the division in their first year under Nagy after four straight last-place finishes.

If it seems like the Jets had to be careful not to trip over their own feet in a rush to give linebacker C.J. Mosley a huge contract in the early stages of free agency http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/...ll-jersey-cheap , its because thats not too far from the truth.Head coach Mosley to hit free agency given how much he meant to the Ravens over the last few years and that they didnt want to let any grass grow under their feet once it became clear he wasnt going to remain in Baltimore.We were shocked, Gase said, via . You start thinking, Theres no way hes going to get out of there. Then when he hit the market Connor McGovern Jersey , it was a full-court press for us.Mosleys five-year, $85 million deal set a new standard for the leagues top inside linebackers and Gase said that the team expects Mosley to set a new standard in the teams locker room as well.

The NL Central-leading Brewers designated the left-handed reliever for assignment on Tuesday to make room on the roster for rookie starter Freddy Peralta.

Logan appeared in 16 games for Milwaukee http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , which signed him as a free agent in January hoping to use him as a left-handed specialist. He started the season dealing with a lat injury and struggled after joining the club in early May. The 33-year-old went 1-0 with a 5.91 ERA for the Brewers and had trouble getting out left-handed batters. Lefties went 9 for 22 (.410) against Logan with five extra-base hits.

Peralta is scheduled to start against the Pirates on Tuesday night. He is 1-0 with a 3.72 ERA in two major-league starts.



Antonio Brown didnt join his new teammates for the start of organized team activities.Raiders coach Jon Gruden did not specify a reason for Browns absence. Gruden offered only that he hopes to see the receiver soon.Hes not here today, Gruden said, via video from Jimmy Durkin of TheAthletic.com, and hopefully well see him here in the next couple of days. Hes been working extremely hard learning our offense and really excited to get him out here. But in the meantime Zach Gentry Jersey , we have plenty of balls and plenty of receivers to throw to.Brown is hardly the only big-name player in the NFL training on his own during voluntary sessions at team facilities this spring. Todd Gurley, Le'Veon Bell, Julio Jones, Josh Norman L.J. Collier Jersey , Patrick Peterson, Yannick Ngakoue, Chris Jones, Odell Beckham http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/...ersey-authentic , Jarvis Landry, Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and Dante Fowler are among others who have skipped all or part of their teams offseason work.The Steelers agreed to trade Brown to the Raiders on March 10.

LAKE FOREST Trevon Wesco Jersey , Ill. (AP)From an offensive-minded head coach to a new set of receivers, the Chicago Bears have spent the offseason adding pieces to help Mitchell Trubisky develop into the franchise quarterback they believe he can become.Its easy to envision them continuing along that path with the No. 8 pick in the draft on Thursday. defense is the way they go.I think the needs of this team are pretty defined, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said.General manager Ryan Pace said the Bears have identified eight players the Bears are comfortable taking with the eighth pick.Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson and Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith would appear to be strong possibilities for the Bears, assuming they are still on the board.The 6-foot-5, 329-pound Nelson would fill a void the Bears created by letting four-time Pro Bowler Josh Sitton go.With his size and strength, Nelson would help protect Trubisky and create space for the running backs. It doesnt hurt, either, that Bears line coach Harry Hiestand was his position coach in college.Smith would also be an intriguing possibility with his speed and quickness.If you can get him at 8, great, Kiper said. Nelsons also one of the best three or four or five players in this draft. But hes a guard. I value the linebacker over the guard.Pace clearly values Trubisky.Pace staked his reputation to the quarterback by trading up a spot with San Francisco to draft him No. 2 overall last year and made it clear the No. 1 priority this offseason was to improve his supporting cast.The Bears hired an offensive-minded coach in Matt Nagy to replace the fired John Fox and revamped the receiving group, most notably signing free agent Allen Robinson.Whether they go offense or defense in the first round, the Bears need to hit on the pick. After all, Chicago has made the playoffs just one time since the 2006 teams Super Bowl run and has four straight seasons with 10 or more losses.Here are some things to know heading into the draft:KEY ACQUISITIONSWhile the Robinson signing is the headline move of the offseason so far, hes not the only new target for Trubisky.The Bears also signed the speedy Taylor Gabriel, and brought in Bennie Fowler after deciding not to match New Orleans offer sheet for Cameron Meredith. They added a versatile tight end, too Trey Burton. He threw a memorable touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles in Philadelphias Super Bowl victory over New England.CATCHING ONThe Bears could still use help at wide receiver Shareef Miller Jersey , something they might try to address on the second or third day. Pace was part of a front office in New Orleans that found some good players in the later rounds and on the undrafted free agent market.The Saints got six 1,000-yard seasons in 10 years out of Marques Colston after drafting the Hofstra product in the seventh round in 2006. Lance Moore, undrafted out of Toledo, had 346 receptions for 4,281 yards and 38 touchdowns for New Orleans from 2006-13.Theres a lot of things that you value with the receivers, Pace said. They can be different animals small, big, good route runners, speed guys but I would say the trait that has to be there is good hands, natural hands.PICK `EMAlong with the No. 8 pick, the Bears have one second-rounder and two in the fourth. They also have one each in the fifth, sixth and seventh. But they dont have a third-round pick.SPOTTY MARKPace has an uneven record drafting in the first round.Oft-injured receiver Kevin White has been a bust since Pace took him with the No. 7 pick in 2015. Limited to five games, the West Virginia product has 21 catches for 193 yards.Linebacker Leonard Floyd and Trubisky have flashed some promise, but have room to improve.HITS, MISSES AND BARGAINSWhile White is a huge miss, Pace hit in a big way in the second and fifth rounds in 2016.He grabbed Cody Whitehair in the second round, landing a big contributor at both guard and center not to mention an emerging leader. In the fifth round Zach Brown Jersey , Pace took running back Jordan Howard out of Indiana. All he has done is run for 2,435 yards, though his struggles catching the ball could be an issue in Nagys system.Pace got another bargain running back last season when he drafted Tarik Cohen in the fourth round. He had 370 yards rushing and 353 receiving as a rookie. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Leonard Fournette slipped off his sweaty cleats, signed each one and then handed them to a young fan after practice.The youngster carefully walked away with Fournettes gold-colored shoes, making sure not to touch the drying ink. After all, the memorabilia could appreciate in value if the Jacksonville Jaguars running back gets his NFL career turned around.Fournette spoke publicly for the first time in nearly six months Friday, finally addressing the worst season in his 24 years and everything thats happened since. He was injured, suspended and on the bench in crunch time. He was fined, criticized and admittedly not in ideal shape late in the year.The Jaguars voided the remaining guarantees in his rookie contract following his one-game suspension for fighting, and personnel chief Tom Coughlin ripped him for being disrespectful and selfish during the season finale. Adding to the chaos, Fournette was arrested last month for driving with a suspended license.Its a new year, Fournette said following practice. We have a new team. Were focused and we have new players. Its a new year for us, so its a new everything. Its a clean start for a lot of us guys. Were not focused on the past. The pasts the past.Some things I did, whether it was offseason and I admitted to, yeah I was wrong. We moved on. Were in a good place right now.The Jaguars were in a tough spot without Fournette last season, unable to run the ball with any consistency after building the offense around the former LSU star and fourth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.He finished with 439 yards rushing and five touchdowns in eight games after running for 1 Devin Bush Jersey ,040 yards and nine scores as a rookie. Hes missed 11 games in two seasons, including two because of suspensions.Everybody has a bad year, so I dont feel like Ive got to prove myself to no one, Fournette said.The team probably feels otherwise.Jacksonville completely revamped its running backs room around Fournette, firing position coach Tyrone Wheatley and parting ways with backups T.J. Yeldon, Carlos Hyde and Corey Grant.Coach Doug Marrone hired 64-year-old Terry Robiskie, who, like Fournette, was born and raised in New Orleans and attended LSU, as running backs coach. They also added veteran Alfred Blue (another LSU alum) to be Fournettes backup.And even though they signed quarterback and former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to upgrade one of the NFLs most anemic offenses, Fournette is still expected to be the centerpiece under new coordinator John DeFilippo.Hes going to be a major reason for where our offense goes, DeFilippo said. Im not going to sugarcoat that. Leonard Fournette needs to be a big part of this offense. The harder he works, which he is right now, I think thats not only going to be good for our offense, but good for our team.Fournette said he weighs 226 pounds, down 14 pounds from the end of last season.He spent part of this offseason training in Dallas and then went to Wyoming to work with his college strength and conditioning coach in hopes of getting back to his foundation.I kind of put a lot on myself this offseason, like getting my body right Diontae Johnson Jersey , Fournette said. Just mentally coming back ready to play football. No distractions. Leaving the outside stuff where its at. I think thats one of the biggest things that us players. We face a lot of problems, you know what I mean?We have a lot of issues, and if were not right with ourselves and then we come out on this field, were not going to be right in the game.Getting Fournette back on track is one of Jacksonvilles top priorities. Coaches believe hes got the talent to be one of the best backs in the league a guy whose worn cleats would be a collectors item but they have to keep him healthy, in shape, motivated and focused.Those young guys at that age, I always think they need a little more push, a little bit more guidance, a little bit more leadership, Robiskie said. Leonard is one of those guys.Hes got the ambition. Hes got the heart.I think he wants to win. I dont think he wants to win a game. I think he wants to be a part of something special. I think he wants to win a Super Bowl, and I think the year before last, that little taste that he had, I think that kind of helped push it a little bit more.

Ive always thought that its really important Sione Takitaki Jersey , Carroll told reporters on Thursday regarding music at practice. Its really a valuable aspect of the practice experience. We also we call on the Blue Angels that fly too, to just help us with the noise. They added to it today, made it really challenging today. Its more than just music. The music is playing here all the time, in meetings and all that kind of stuff. Without question it has something to do with uplifting the spirit of guys, and me too. The other day, the sound system went out and everyone was like, whats going on? Everyone could tell and feel the difference in what it feels like.Theres an important reason for the noise.Its never quiet at the stadium, Carroll said. It always is [loud], wherever we are going, away or home. We have to learn to deal with that whole factor. We also get that benefit as well. Its really way more than that. Its all more about the juice and the energy that it works and lends us to.Carroll was asked whether the noise meshes with the culture Carroll has tried to maintain in Seattle.Absolutely, Carroll said. Back in the day, in high school, you had a teacher that you went to that class and when you went to that class, you knew you were going in, something might happen that day. Youre always kind of wondering what was going to happen and what was happening and you might do the noise and the music outside. I like our environment to be that kind of energized. Wherever we can keep it upbeat and keep them challenged and guessing and not white sure whats going to happen next Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , thats what we are endeavoring to do.Fans and media are definitely wondering whats going to happen next for the Seahawks. Chances are that, whatever it is, it will be good. SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The most glaring need for the San Francisco 49ers this offseason was clear after the defense set records for futility with just seven takeaways and two interceptions last season.The teams first two big moves of the new league year were made to address that deficiency with the additions of an edge rusher in Dee Ford, who has a propensity for strip sacks, and a speedy linebacker in Kwon Alexander, who has a knack for finding the ball.That wasnt fun to watch, general manager John Lynch said Thursday. It is something we have to live with. Its a reality, and we needed to change that. These are the type of players that we believe can reverse that trend. Starting with Kwon. Hes always around the ball. Theres so many things to like, but that is definitely something that jumps. And then Dee, he has a knack for getting the ball out. Eight forced fumbles last year, and that first step is lethal. We think that can help our entire team get that virus going, where were taking away the ball on a regular basis.The 49ers paid a big price for these additions, trading a 2020 second-round pick to Kansas City to acquire Ford and then giving him a five-year, $87.5 million contract Austin Seibert Jersey , and signing Alexander to a four-year deal worth $54 million.Ford had a career-high 13 sacks last season and led the NFL with seven forced fumbles. He also led all edge rushers with 84 total quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus, making him exactly the kind of playmaker the 49ers lacked on defense this past season.Its really a mindset and muscle memory, Ford said of forcing turnovers. Its not really an intricate skill to have. Its just a mindset. Most guys get to the quarterback and just want to take him down. Just switch the mentality and knock the ball out. You have to work it. Everything happens so fast so it needs to be muscle memory to go for the ball.The 49ers havent had an edge rusher reach double digits in sacks since Aldon Smith had 19 1/2 in 2012 and have the fifth-fewest overall sacks in the NFL the past six seasons. DeForest Buckner led the team with 12 sacks this past season, mostly from an interior spot.Alexander, coming off a torn ACL, has six career interceptions, six forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and seven sacks in 46 games.Speed and violence affect the quarterback and make people do stupid things before they want to, coach Kyle Shanahan said. Both of these guys have a lot of speed, and they both play very violent.With Ford slated to start at defensive end in the Leo position on San Franciscos defense, the strategy in the draft could be altered. The Niners have the second overall pick and could be in position to take Ohio States Nick Bosa, who is projected to play the same role.Now they could be in position to move down in the draft or look at a rush linebacker like Josh Allen.Were evaluating everyone, Lynch said. Having Dee just makes us a better football team, and the drafts something separate. Yes Trysten Hill Jersey , those two do interact at some point, but well see. Were going to go out there and look. At No. 2, you want to have a great football player. Thats what were looking for and well see where it ends up.The 49ers also signed cornerback Jason Verrett to a one-year deal, receiver Jordan Matthews to a one-year contract, linebacker David Mayo to a two-year contract, and agreed on a one-year deal to bring back safety Antone Exum. San Francisco also released linebacker Brock Coyle, who announced he will retire after suffering a back injury last season.Verrett is a 2014 first-round pick by the Chargers and made the Pro Bowl in 2015. But he has played only five games the past three seasons after suffering knee injuries in 2016 and 17 and then tearing his Achilles tendon during a conditioning test on the first day of training camp last year.Verrett will compete with 2017 third-round pick Ahkello Witherspoon and 2018 third-rounder Tarvarius Moore for the starting spot across from Richard Sherman.Its a smile now, cry later type of thing for me, Verrett said of his run of injuries. It was a lot of dark moments dealing with the injuries, but I came out of the tunnel and Im ready to get things rolling.Matthews is a cousin of former 49ers great Jerry Rice and has always wanted to play for the team. He was a second-round pick by Philadelphia in 2014 and has 270 catches for 3,255 yards and 22 TDs in five seasons with the Eagles and Buffalo.Matthews averaged 75 catches a year his first three seasons before being slowed by injuries in 2017 with the Bills and a lack of opportunities last season with the Eagles after returning to Philadelphia.Mayo was a special teams standout for Carolina who offers depth at inside linebacker for San Francisco.Exum spent the past two seasons with the 49ers and started seven games at safety in 2018.
