Asked whether the Lions have reached out to try and mend those fences

The wedge is one reason why Johnson sounds indifferent when asked about the state of the Lions now that head coach Jim Caldwell was fired following his fourth season.

I can’t call it, Johnson said. I don’t know any of the people there now.

You hate to see Caldwell go. He’s a great guy. Guys loved to play for him. I loved to play for him. The man was someone you’d invite out to dinner. He’s that kind of guy. The best to him in his future.

Limited Youth Brandon Shell Jersey I think, regarding Albert Breer University, I really don’t see how a two-loss team with a 31-point loss to unranked Iowa has much of a case Darius Slay Jersey to jump 11-1 Alabama, scarred only by a 12-point loss to an Auburn team that entered play Saturday ranked second by the college football playoff committee. I know Ohio State’s schedule was tougher, but I just can’t get over Iowa 55, Ohio State 24.

As soon as we learned of the reports, we formally requested that the NFL thoroughly investigate the matter to conclusively determine whether the Rooney Rule was violated 锟斤拷 and if it was violated, to impose an appropriate punishment, the Fritz Pollard Alliance statement read, in part.

According to NFL Media, both Tee Martin and Bobby Johnson were interviewed for the Raiders job but were believed to do so after the franchise made the decision to hire Gruden.

If the league investigates the Raiders and finds they violated the Rooney Rule Oakland could be subjected to a major fine and/or a loss of draft picks.

With Colson sidelined, more will need to be shouldered by Farrell, Colson’s roommate since freshman year who had grown into a costarring role. Though the pair initially knew next to nothing about each other, their parallels offered easy common ground. Both are sons of coaches (Farrell’s father, Bob, is an assistant at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark) who were slighted by recruiting analysts (ESPN gave Farrell a two-star grade). Colson discovered Farrell too plays every game like it’s his last, which, in Colson-ese, is high praise.

The No. 1 pick earlier this year played well enough to earn a roster spot coming out of training camp.

Grizzlies: G Wayne Selden Jr. returned Sunday after missing 33 games with a right quadriceps injury. He played 18 minutes against Sacramento, scoring 10 points. Bickerstaff said Selden’s minutes would continue to be watched closely until his conditioning improves. “He’s a versatile player. He can be really good defensively. He’s athletic, he’s strong. And then offensively he has a knack to make plays. From that wing position, he gives us an added dimension to be able to play some pick-and-roll and attack and share with his teammates,” Bickerstaff said. Selden scored 13 points in 14 minutes Tuesday.

I wouldn’t use the word concerned, Reid said. I would say I understand that’s a possibility. And I’m completely fine with it. The things that I’ve done, I stand by, and I’ve done that for my own personal beliefs. Like I said, I’m fine with whatever outcome happens because of that.

Jay Cutler (7:30 a.m.): The Miami quarterback is not expected to play a full 60 minutes for the Dolphins, as the team wants to give David Fales a little bit of time under center.

The Packers (7-9) have a losing record for the first time since 2008, which is also the last time they didn’t earn a spot in the playoffs. Their chances this season were crushed by Aaron Rodgers missing nine games with a collarbone injury,

Green Bay, without several banged-up players, gave away its chances to close with a win by turning it over three times in the first half to help the Lions lead 20-3 at halftime.

The Packers surprised Detroit by opening with an onside kick they recovered, but didn’t take advantage because Jamaal Williams bobbled a pass that was picked off by Jarrad Davis. They did take a 3-0 lead on Mason Crosby’s 41-yard field goal late in the first quarter, but Detroit tied it on the ensuing possession and took control in the second quarter.

With the game tied in the third quarter, the Falcons had an apparent touchdown taken off the board when a review showed Mohamed Sanu didn’t maintain control of a 12-yard catch in the end zone. The ball hit the ground after Sanu collided with Julio Jones, who also was crossing to the middle of the end zone.

The teams were 0 for 12 on third and fourth down before the Cowboys converted on third down late in the second quarter.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, who has 790 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns this season, has a $600,000 bonus for 800 rushing yards and another $250,000 bonus for nine rushing TDs. Lynch, therefore, needs 10 rushing yards against the Los Angeles Chargers and Womens Peter Budaj Jersey two rushing scores to collect both monetary awards.

On Sunday in the Packers-Bears game, we will see guys draped in heavy sideline jackets and huddled around heaters on the sidelines. They are the best. Like jet engines. And it’s a good idea to stand in front of those before taking the field, especially for special teams (limited reps lead to tight hamstrings in the cold). However, those things are dangerous. I mean, it’s an open flame. I’ve seen sideline jackets catch on fire, and I also remember a situation in Green Bay when it was time for the punt return team to get on the field in a late December game but a player couldn’t make it on the field because his gloves had melted together. Panic set in, and trainers frantically tried to cut off his gloves.

Limited Mens Peyton Manning Jersey All week, Caldwell has fielded questions about his future, and for the most part stuck with his usual answer of saying he’s not worried about it and just focused on the next game. Now, with no more next games, Caldwell was sticking with business as usual until it isn’t usual anymore.

The Eagles got their first third-down conversion midway through the third quarter. Sudfeld then ran 22 yards on another third down and the crowd roared.

Philadelphia’s best drive with Foles was the game opener. The Eagles drove to the Cowboys 39 before Torrey Smith dropped a pass on third-and-7. Foles was hurried and threw an incomplete pass on fourth down.

Game Andre Ellington Jersey Foles underthrew Alshon Jeffery and was picked by Chidobe Awuzie at the Cowboys 48 on Philadelphia’s third possession. It was Awuzie’s first career interception. The offense went three-and-out on the first unit’s fourth and final series.

Playoff spots won’t be the only things on the line when the 2017 NFL regular season concludes Sunday.

A host of players across the league are in line to pocket significant bonuses if they can reach certain performance incentives based on their Week 17 play. ESPN’s Adam Schefter, citing sources, looks at some of the most significant:

Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake collects a $1 million incentive for 55 percent playing time this season. Entering Sunday, he’s at close to 60 percent and is expected to clinch it against the Buffalo Bills.

Titans tight end Delanie Walker earns a $500,000 incentive this season for going to the Pro Bowl and for Tennessee making the playoffs. Walker already has been voted to the Pro Bowl, so if Tennessee wins Sunday to get into the playoffs, Walker earns another half-million dollars.

Nick Foles struggled in one quarter, going 4 of 11 for 39 yards with one interception. Foles was excellent in his first start after Carson Wentz went down for the season, tossing four TD passes in a 34-29 win at the Giants on Dec. 17. But he has followed up with two poor performances.

“I feel great and I know what I can do,” Foles said. “I know the guys are confident in me. We expect to execute better. This wasn’t acceptable. We know how talented we can be. We can do special stuff.”

Second-year pro Nate Sudfeld replaced Foles and was 19 of 23 for 134 yards in his first career game. He was tackled inside the 5 after catching a lateral on a desperation play to end the game.

“Pretty solid for the most part in terms of efficiency and everything,” Sudfeld said. “But I felt there were some plays that we weren’t able to finish.”lions_010

Houston’s plight has been just as bad.

Injuries, including a big one to rookie Deshaun Watson, hurt the Texans’ chances of getting back to the playoffs, but their future looks bright.

The win ended the longest losing streak of Pagano’s six seasons. It did nothing to quell speculation whether he’ll be back next season, which has been the hottest topic in town since the Colts (4-12) were eliminated from the playoffs for the third consecutive season.
Pagano has two years left on his contract.

It was also Belichick’s 250th career regular-season win, moving him into a tie with Tom Landry for third all-time among head coaches.

New Jansen Harkins Womens Jersey England has defeated New York in four straight meetings, and the Patriots haven’t lost to the Jets (5-11) at home during the regular season with Tom Brady starting since 2006. Brady’s 13th win as a starter this season tied him with Brett Favre for the most by a starting quarterback at age 40 or older.

Gettleman and Manning huddled Sunday outside the locker room after Manning threw for 132 yards on 10-of-28 passing with a touchdown and an interception. The new general manager congratulated him on the rare victory and told him they would sit down to talk soon.

It’s probably been my toughest year of football I would say with the losses, the injuries, the benching and coming back and everything going on, the losses more than anything, said Manning, who threw a touchdown pass on a day the Giants rode a season-high 260-yard game from their running attack.

Manning is under contract for a couple of seasons, but the decision whether he returns rests with new general manager Dave Gettleman, who was hired Thursday.

Justin Evans Limited Jersey Manning wants to be back.

This is where I want to play, he said. This is like my family, the New York Giants has been. Hopefully they feel the same way and we can make that work out.

Los Angeles keeps lighting up teams with Jared Goff going off in the passing game, no matter who’s out there with him.

The 49ers enjoyed their best time-of-possession edge, controlling the clock for 38:47. They converted on 10 of 18 third downs. And the two sacks allowed matched San Francisco’s second-lowest total of 2017.

Jared Goff blew an opportunity to close out the Eagles, and it will cost the Rams in losing control of the NFC West a week later. The Seahawks will come out flying at home to make up for their latest slow start in Jacksonville. They’ll swarm to contain Todd Gurley so they can tee off on Goff. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson, with his mobility, his big arm and Jimmy Graham, will have his way with a hurting Rams defense.

The last time these NFC East rivals played, in October, Ezekiel Elliott ran through and over Washington, and the Cowboys won 33-19. The Cowboys, of course, are 0-3 without their star running back. The loser of this game will not be out of the playoff hunt, but their seats would move closer to the exit. Kirk Cousins is putting up strong numbers (3,038 yards, second in the NFL), yet is wildly inconsistent from series to series. Dak Prescott would envy that right now.

In a weird way, Eli Manning to Jacksonville in 2018 sounds a lot more like Peyton Manning to Denver in 2012 than Option 2 above does. If the Giants are ready to move on, it’s safe to think Manning would want to reunite with Coughlin in a quest for one last ring before he hangs it up — with the pair having the last laugh.

Sean McVay keeps pushing the right buttons and can always lean on a big-play running game, too, with Todd Gurley. Even without top wide receiver Robert Woods for a few games, the Rams are loaded with versatile playmakers and still have two dangerous game-breakers in Sammy Watkins and Cooper Kupp.chargers_016-180x180

Is Blake Bortles a good enough quarterback to guide the Jaguars to playoff success?

Although the Jaguars enter the Seahawks game leading the NFL in total defense (282.5 yards allowed per game) and sacks (45), one major question that has lingered since the preseason remains unanswered: Is Blake Bortles a good enough quarterback to guide the Jaguars to playoff success?

There is no debate that Bortles has enjoyed his best year to date after a disastrous preseason in which he was briefly benched in favor of backup Chad Henne (who wasn’t any better). Bortles also isn’t expected to carry the offense so much as avoid turnovers and effectively serve a game-manager role with the Jaguars leaning heavily on their rushing attack.

That will be extremely hard for Carolina with No. 1 Minnesota coming to town and maybe Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay in Week 15, well before the showdown in Atlanta in Week 17. Between that is their favorable game vs. Tampa Bay.
Prior to Stanton, the last reigning MVP to be traded was former Yankee Alex Rodriguez, whom Cashman acquired at a discounted price from the Texas Rangers in 2003.

The easiest way to look at the Steelers’ win Sunday night over the Ravens to keep them in the AFC home-field playoff hunt, is: Antonio Brown, serious MVP candidate.

The next easiest way to look at it is to see the score — 39-38 over a Ravens team that, two weeks earlier, had the second-worst offense in the NFL — and say: The Steelers can’t stop anybody, and their defense will be their doom before they get to a Super Bowl, never mind win one.

But the smartest way to look at it all is to understand what the NFL is, including the elite class of teams, and ask: Who’s going to stop Brown, Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and the rest of that offense?

Alex Smith and Derek Carr are headed to another shootout.

Oakland arguably has the toughest schedule of the three teams, still having to play at Kansas City and Los Angeles with a trip to NFC juggernaut Philadelphia in between. But the Raiders’ makeup last season was coming through consistently in the fourth quarter with Carr and being fearless on the road, no matter the distance, no matter the opponent.

The trick is carrying over the fire and intensity, which shouldn’t be a problem now with sudden life in the quest for a second consecutive playoff berth. It probably won’t take more than nine wins to capture a division that was expected to be the best in the NFL. Consider the Broncos were in third place at 9-7 last season, while both the Raiders and Chiefs were 12-4.

Give the slight edge to Kansas City because of desperation at Arrowhead.

What transpired Tuesday was even more embarrassing than New York’s 2-9 record for a team considered a legitimate Super Bowl contender entering the season. The Giants railroaded Manning into ceding his starting job when telling him backup Geno Smith would play in the second half of Sunday’s game at Oakland no matter how things unfolded in the first two quarters. New York knew someone as prideful as Manning wouldn’t accept such a cockamamie plan just to keep alive his string of 222 consecutive starts (including the postseason).

Manning bowed out as gracefully as he could under the circumstances and shifted to a second-string role.

Don’t be fooled by McAdoo’s gaga about this move being made because the Giants want “a complete evaluation of the roster top to bottom, especially at the quarterback position, moving on to next season.” This was all about putting New York in better position to lose its final five games with Smith and rookie Davis Webb under center and thus secure the highest draft pick possible to select a quarterback.lakers_004
