Seahawks challenged a Russell Wilson Jersey incompletion so it could be called a fumble

Pete Carroll and the Seahawks are pulling out all the stops against the Texans. A smart, but unusual, challenge in the first quarter helped keep a drive alive and get the Seahawks into the end zone for the second time.

Limited Mens Sterling Moore Jersey Here’s how three owners who were at Tuesday’s meeting saw it:

Arthur Blank, Falcons: They Womens Jersey view the owners as individuals that have the deepest roots, the deepest foundation. Coaches, sadly, come and go. General managers, sadly, come and go. Even players come and go. But they understand the owner is a person with resources, and not just financial resources, but with relationships and contacts that can help on these social issues, with knowledge and input and involvement. And that’s really what they’re asking for. Owners understand where they’re coming from. Be good listeners, be good responders, and be involved on an ongoing basis. And I think that’s not unreasonable. That’s more than reasonable.

The goal is to support the growth of the NWHL, a four-team women’s pro league that started in 2015. The Devils will assist with marketing and facilities for Riveters’ games and practices in Newark, New Jersey.

The Devils and Riveters will host a doubleheader on Oct. 28 at the Prudential Center. The Riveters will open their season against the Boston Pride in the afternoon and the Devils will play the Arizona Coyotes at night.

The new alliance begins on Saturday at Prudential Center in support of World Girls Hockey Weekend. The Riveters will join 60-plus area female youth hockey players for the Devils home opener against the Colorado Avalanche. The girls will meet the Riveters and participate in a skating clinic after the game.

Limited Mens Allen Robinson Jersey Hugh Weber, president of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment, called the partnership ”an extraordinary opportunity to support youth and women’s professional ice hockey at the Prudential Center.”

Russell Okung, other players could skip upcoming meeting with owners

Los Angeles Chargers left tackle Russell Okung, who attended the recent NFL owners-players meetings in New York, is not pleased with the league’s efforts on social justice reform.

Josh Doctson, WR, Washington Redskins (13.3 percent): A shifting in the winds in Washington at wide receiver? Perhaps, as Doctson seemingly overtook a good chunk of the snaps that Terrelle Pryor Sr. had previously handled. Doctson logged 54 of 64 snaps on Monday night, with Pryor playing just 30.

In the midst of one of his best performances of the season, Flacco was hit high by Kiko Alonso while sliding at the end of an impromptu run near the end of the second quarter. Flacco’s helmet flew off his head, and the 10-year quarterback appeared wobbly as he struggled to his feet.

Flacco was initially placed in concussion protocol, and by halftime was ruled out.

“Joe had a concussion and a cut ear,” coach John Harbaugh said. “They were stitching it up without any anesthesia, so he’s a tough dude. That’s as much as I know.”

The coach hopes that tough dude is ready to play on Nov. 5, when Baltimore faces Tennessee on the road.

Miami, meanwhile, was looking for so much more from Moore in his first start of the year. Subbing for the injured Cutler (ribs), Moore went 25 for 44 for 176 yards.

If Cutler is healthy on Nov. 5, he will likely start against Oakland.

Cowboys DE David Irving Jersey plans protest Sunday, but will not ‘disrespect the flag’

Team owner Jerry Jones has vowed that any Cowboys players that disrespect the flag will not play.
Limited Duke Riley Youth Black Nike Jersey - #42 NFL Atlanta Falcons 2016 Salute to Service
Dallas defensive end David Irving says he’s already planned his protest for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, the Cowboys’ first since their owner issued his ultimatum.

It sounds like something will have to give Sunday, although Irving told reporters Friday his protest against racial injustice and police brutality will not disrespect the flag.

I hope not since it’s not about the flag in the first place, you know? Irving said (via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram).

So what does he have planned?

I have made a call, Irving said. You’ll just have to wait ’til Sunday. Davis’ message, and passion, seemed to relieve the tension. Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank later told Davis that he’d missed his calling as a great public speaker. A few owners tried to separate their deep dislike of unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the protests a little more than a year ago, from the players’ broader message: This wasn’t an anthem protest but rather an inequality in America protest.

Irving and fellow defensive lineman Damontre Moore raised their fists after the anthem before the Cowboys’ last game, on Oct. 8. After that game, Jones addressed the issue of national anthem protests. He seemed unaware that Irving and Moore had raised their fists, and didn’t mention any specific act other than kneeling as disrespectful.

I don’t know about that. But if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play, Jones said.

‘Unity’: The word the NFL is using to avoid talking about Colin Kaepernick Jersey

That’s not a big deal for next week’s showdown with the Bears 锟斤拷 although rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky could give Chicago a much-needed spark in his first NFL start. Losing Bradford for Week 6’s home game against archrival Green Bay, however, would create a significant disadvantage against one of the NFC’s top teams.
Zaza Pachulia Men's Authentic Gold The Finals Jersey: Adidas NBA Golden State Warriors Alternate #27
Game Youth Ken Dryden Jersey A solid defense will help mitigate that. The Vikings held a dangerous Detroit team to 14 points Sunday and currently rank eighth in the league in scoring defense. They held Tampa Bay to 26 running yards in Week 3 and limited Matthew Stafford to 209 passing yards in Week 4. While not elite, Minnesota has the tools to grind its opponents down to a place where a mediocre offense can do enough to win.

It’s just three points, but it would have extended the Falcons’ lead to 20-0. The missed kick was the moment the Falcons’ trajectory changed. It was the last time the Falcons were in a position to score until their very last possession of the game.

The point is that all of those arguments and efforts are not to honestly engage the issue of police brutality, but to make sure that nothing changes. To distort the conversation so much that the point of them is forgotten. It’s to preserve the lie that all is perfect and as it should be.

Kaepernick was confronted with a moral problem on whether it was right or wrong that black people are disproportionately profiled, abused and killed by police officers who then escape punishment, and decided that, to him, it was wrong. He then acted from that stance as he thought appropriate. That’s all there was to it. The opposite reaction has been to make sure that not only is the issue not confronted, but that the awareness of it goes away completely. Even if it means Glen Rice Womens Jersey booing those who are trying to distract from it as well.

Antonio Brown Jersey one-handed TD catch off of a tipped pass is MAGIC

The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a big play to keep a clock-draining drive alive. What they got was a little luck and a highlight-reel touchdown.

Since we’re now at roughly the one-third mark of the 2017 NFL season, it’s a good time to take a look at how every NFL team’s blocking wall (a term that includes anyone who blocks on a play) grades out at this time.

Authentic Kids Craig Robertson Jersey The details of the grading system can be found here, with the nutshell explanation being that it uses a wide variety of advanced blocking metrics to come up with an A-F grade for every platoon.

Now that we have the preliminaries out of the way, let’s take a look at the top five and bottom five blocking walls, predict if those blocking paces will continue, and review some interesting metrics being posted by a couple of AFC playoff contenders.

Authentic Youth Brian Hartline Jersey The biggest injury question mark this week appeared to be wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and his recovery from a hamstring strain. But coach Dan Quinn said Sanu is set to return to practice and was close to playing last week against the Dolphins. Getting Sanu back for the Super Bowl rematch against the Patriots could be key with some of the offensive struggles the Falcons are enduring right now. — Vaughn McClure

Inside linebacker Luke Kuechly entered the concussion protocol last Thursday for the third time in as many years. Although he’s progressing, his history with concussions could mean the team is cautious about putting him back on the field for Sunday’s game at Chicago, even if he clears all five steps. That he has a week and a half between games works in his favor, and the Panthers, as coach Ron Rivera made clear, are clearly a better team with the 2013 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. — David Newton

Florida DE Jordan Sherit out for season after hip surgery

The Gators (3-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) also expect to be without safety Nick Washington (shoulder) and defensive back Quincy Lenton (knee) when they play third-ranked Georgia (7-0, 4-0) in nearby Jacksonville next week.

“It’s been kind of a rough ride, but I feel like it’s only going to going to get better from here,” linebacker Kylan Johnson said. “Coach Mac is doing a good job with us, staying positive, and we’re just going to take it step by step from here.”

Adding to the injury woes, the Gators are without nine scholarship players who are suspended indefinitely while the state attorney investigates potential felony credit card fraud charges. So that’s at least 20 scholarship players unable to practice. It’s unclear when the investigation will be completed.

“It’s a joy, I’ll put it that way,” McElwain quipped. “That’s part of it. бн I think the big thing is it’s next guy up.”

Hardy, 29, broke the news on social media. Representatives at First Round Management confirmed the bout to ESPN. Hardy will face Joe Hawkins inside Havert L. Finn Center in Fort Pierce, Florida.

A controversial figure in the NFL, Hardy hasn’t played football since 2015. He was arrested in 2014 after allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend. The domestic violence case was eventually dropped, and Hardy’s record was expunged.

In late 2016, Hardy revealed he had started training for MMA in south Florida and intended to pursue a professional career. Representatives told ESPN that Hardy’s current focus is his amateur debut, and there is no set timeframe for booking a pro fight.nike_cardinals_316

Matt Ryan Jersey and Julio Jones Jersey should play better facing a Patriots defense struggling

The 2018 NFL Draft will be in Texas.

AT&T Stadium in Arlington, home of the Cowboys, has been selected as the site for the upcoming NFL draft, the league announced Wednesday.

Before Philadelphia hosted the draft, Chicago hosted in 2016. However, for the 50 years before that, New York City was the traditional location.

The Falcons are feeling more of the fallout of Kyle Shanahan’s departure than they are from the collapse against the Patriots in Super Bowl LI. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones should play better facing a Patriots defense struggling, but in this matchup, the Patriots have a healthy Rob Gronkowski, and the Falcons will be without Mohamed Sanu. There’s no big comeback needed here, as New England takes control early and forces Atlanta into desperate catch-up mode.
Limited Youth Washington Redskins Jersey
With that in mind, we decided to do our latest mock draft — a 10-team points format — with 10 utility spots (no positional requirements) for the starting lineup. We also tacked on a fourth bench spot (drafting a total of 14 rounds) to encourage investing in injured or young players.

Roethlisberger called it a bad day at the office, a combination of bad luck, good plays by the Jaguars secondary and bad plays by the quarterback.

Most disappointing was letting teammates down, he said.

He commended the players for their great character and a deep understanding of the issues in their communities. He said their commitment is admirable and the owners want to help them.

The Giants lost four wide receivers — three for the season — in a Week 5 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers Jersey.

Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris were all moved to injured reserve. The injuries left the Giants with only two receivers who had more than 15 career receptions on the roster, but most importantly, the situation robbed the Giants of the player around whom they had built their entire offense.

Elite Mens Bradley Roby Jersey As for the national anthem protests that have dominated headlines in recent weeks and continues to draw criticism from President Donald Trump? The data remains inconclusive as to whether they have directly led to a drop in viewers. It is equally possible that fans are not tuning in as a result of poor matchups and sloppy play.

In 2011, Horford was in Panama with the Dominican national team when his teammate, Edgar Sosa, got caught in a pileup in the paint, Sosa’s right leg snapping in the process.

We felt this was an issue over the last month, Lockhart added, as we’ve continued to work with our players on issues of equality, on issues of criminal justice reform, that would be appropriate for us to lend our support to it.

Hundley is not nearly as accurate as Rodgers, but McCarthy and Packers quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt must do all they can to put Hundley in a position to make plays while remaining offensively aggressive.

Wisconsin native Tony Romo may get a call, but he would have to step away from his broadcasting job with CBS. Outside of Romo and Kaepernick, the free-agent market is pretty thin at quarterback with Robert Griffin III, Luke McCown and Christian Ponder among those available.

Body of Redskins safety started twitching after collision with 49ers’ Pierre Garcon Jersey

There was a scary moment in Sunday’s game between the Redskins and 49ers when Pierre Garcon trucked Montae Nicholson.

The 49ers receiver was working his way downfield when he lowered his head and made contact with the Redskins safety. The hit knocked Nicholson’s helmet into the arms of his teammate. It also left his body shaking, which you can see briefly in the video below.

Nicholson remained down on the field for a while before he eventually walked off. Washington evaluated him for a concussion, but after about 20 minutes of real time, Nicholson was back on the sidelines warming up, and the team announced he was cleared of a concussion.
Elite Youth Aaron Donald Jersey
The play did catch the eye of former player and current ESPN talent Domonique Foxworth, who offered some thoughts on the scary hit.

How we got here: Injuries. That is the short answer. A Defensive Player of the Year caliber season for Bowman came to an agonizing end in the 49ers’ loss to the Seahawks in the NFC title game in 2014 when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL on a goal-line stand.

Though Bowman returned with an All-Pro campaign in 2015, an Achilles tear last season brought his 2016 to a premature conclusion and it is evident this year he is not the same player. He has struggled in coverage and it was telling there was no significant drop-off on defense when he was benched during last Sunday’s loss to the Colts.

Josh Bynes Limited Jersey Rookie Reuben Foster boasts considerably superior athleticism while Ray-Ray Armstrong has two picks in his last two games. With the injured Malcolm Smith tied to a long-term deal, this is a move that makes perfect sense for a rebuilding team, even if it will sting considerably from a purely emotional standpoint.

What it means for Bowman: The chance to pick for a contender. It pains 49ers fans that Vernon Davis is the only member of that excellent Jim Harbaugh-led team to win a Super Bowl ring, but Bowman can now change that.

I’m going to take the advice of Daryl and his team and Tad.

Maybe not coincidentally, the 23-year-old Smart is eligible for an extension on his rookie pact before the regular season tips on Oct. 17. The Celtics must decide if it’s worthwhile to give Smart a hefty payday now or run the risk that a solid season could further elevate his price tag and allow rivals a chance to bid for his services.

“They’re going to be the highest favorite we’ve ever had going into a season, any team in any sport,” according to one oddsmaker at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

They’ve truly come a long way. Entering the 2013-14 season, the Warriors were looking up at an impressive array of contenders out West that included the Spurs (one Ray Allen missed shot away from winning the previous title), Thunder (featuring MVP-to-be Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook), Clippers (with Chris Paul and a healthy Blake Griffin) and Rockets (added Dwight Howard to pair with James Harden). The road to the top of the West went through multiple established star duos and trios, leading ESPN’s Summer Forecast panel to project the Warriors for a sixth-place finish in the West.

A home game brought another victory, even though it still wasn’t pretty for Jay Cutler and the offense. They’re teetering on exactly where they’ll be at the end of the season, at. 500.

Remember, I don’t look at things year to year. I don’t operate any of my businesses year to year. I look at everything long-term, so if it costs me money to win a few championships, I’m fine with that. But you don’t want to be in the luxury tax and not be getting to the Finals, so if you don’t have a team that can get to the Finals, you shouldn’t be paying the luxury tax.

I’m going to take the advice of Daryl and his team and Tad. I will do what they suggest that we do.

ESPN: If you look at your NBA neighbors in Texas, you see owners who have been successful with very different styles. Mark Cuban has been as hands-on and outspoken as any owner in any sport. Peter Holt seems to just sign the checks and stay out of public view for the most part. Where do you envision falling on that spectrum?
