Broncos considering QB switch to Paxton Lynch, report says

The Broncos might be ready to make a quarterback change.

That’s insane. You can’t win turning the ball over five times. Guys work too hard to have a big game and give it away fives times; it’s mind-boggling.

The Broncos also have Brock Osweiler on their roster.

Smith-Schuster鈥檚 long touchdown play came on one of very few perfect passes from Ben Roethlisberger. It was the longest passing play in team history, according to the Steelers.

Jack Youngblood Kids Jersey It鈥檚 been a good week for Smith-Schuster. He鈥檚 having a heck of a game, and his bike was returned to him unharmed.

Smith-Schuster won鈥檛 have to rely on his bike for much longer. Al Michaels said on the Sunday Night Football broadcast that the rookie will go with teammate Alejandro Villanueva to take his driver鈥檚 test this week.

McClure was a standout athlete in the small town of Ravenna, Ohio, population around 10,000, an accidental quarterback who wanted to play receiver but weighed about 175 pounds in high school and happened to have a strong arm. He went on to Bowling Green, where he led the Falcons to an undefeated season in 1985 and set school records in completions, passing yards and touchdowns. He was selected by the Bills in the 12th round of the 1986 draft, spend Womens Vladislav Namestnikov Jersey his rookie season on injured reserve and then got cut in training camp in ’87. So he went back home to Ohio, his football career on hold.

Lynch played in three games last season for an injured Siemian, completing 59 percent of his passes with two touchdowns and one interception. Siemian played well last season after earning the starting job, but he already has 10 interceptions and four fumbles this year.

Michael Bennett: Not worried about others’ opinions of Las Vegas incident

Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett says he isn’t bothered by people who call him a liar and dispute his accounts of his August incident with police in Las Vegas.

“I expect he will be invited. We look forward to him joining the conversation,” Lockhart said (via the Boston Globe).

However, Lockhart noted it’s up to the players whether or not to invite Kaepernick. It seems a given Kaepernick would earn an invitation, given his decision to first sit and then kneel during the national anthem last season prompted scores of other players to follow his lead.

But since then he’s been suspended three times, including the one-year suspension, and played in only 14 games. He has 20 tackles and one sack.

Afterward? New England quarterback Tom Brady couldn’t resist a little reference to his team’s consecutive victories over Atlanta following a dominating 23-7 performance Sunday.

His so-called Tom Brady Times on Instagram has a cartoon version of Brady having won a pair of tic-tac-toe games against a red-and-white clad falcon and posing the question: “Best three out of five?”

The Chiefs cut C.J. Spiller as they trimmed the roster down to 53 players back in September, and the move surprised a lot of people. It was even more surprising the following Sunday when Kansas City re-signed Spiller to the active roster.

The 2016 second-round draft pick suffered his fourth shoulder dislocation against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and was placed on injured reserve, the team announced Wednesday. The injury will require more surgery.49ers_217_ff569ddcf9cf30b8-150x150

Former Eagles LB, NFL coach Chuck Weber dies at 87

Chuck Weber, a former NFL linebacker and coach, died Sunday at the age of 87.
Adidas Damian Jones Authentic Men's The Finals Jersey - NBA Golden State Warriors #15 Gold Alternate
Weber spent seven years in the NFL, including his final three with the Philadelphia Eagles (1959-61), who announced Weber’s passing. He ranked second on the team with six interceptions in 1960 when the Eagles won the NFL Championship.

Instead, the big man was limited to 5 yards on two touches. Bryant ran fewer routes than rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster for the fifth consecutive week and has managed one top-40 fantasy week this season. Aside from a long touchdown catch against Minnesota in Week 2, he’s failed to find the end zone and hasn’t eclipsed 48 yards in a game. Bryant can’t be Jason Vargas Youth jersey trusted in your lineup, but he has the upside you want in a bench player.

Pryor, who has just 18 receptions for 223 yards and a touchdown this season, including a quiet two receptions for 14 yards against the Eagles, isn’t concerned with his downward-trending playing time.

It’s coach’s call, Pryor said, via the Washington Times. I don’t have much say in it. You’re not going to see any animosity from me, whatever’s best for the team.

Elite Kids DeMarcus Cousins Jersey Josh Doctson, selected 22nd in the 2016 NFL Draft, started ahead of Pryor Monday night. Doctson has battled injuries early in his career but played 54 out of 64 snaps against the Eagles, hauling in three receptions for 39 yards.

Elite Kids Clayton Geathers Jersey We had a sub-pattern going and we’re going to get Terrelle in there later, coach Jay Gruden said. We wanted to get Josh in there early.

It doesn’t feel like the defense is trying, except for the fact that they really are.

Bless their souls, they’re trying so hard, Rodgers just sees right through everything they do. When the defense does finally corner him, he pulls out the absurd and demoralizes them even further. It must be hell to play against, but it’s incredible to watch.
Nike NFL Bobby Massie Orange Jersey Youth Limited: #70 Chicago Bears Rush Vapor Untouchable
There was an interview segment that aired during the game where Rodgers was asked to pick his favorite passes. One of those he picked was his first big play in the 2010 Super Bowl. The other was the Hail Mary to beat Detroit, but the truly impressive thing is that he was able to pick a few out of so many. He has an endless highlight reel of using his arm, legs, and brain to dissect, escape and out-think defenses. He beat Dallas last year in the same fashion as he did on Sunday. When his arm, legs, and brain aren’t enough, he resorts to the miraculous like the Hail Mary against the Lions, Cardinals and the Giants.

Kelce finished with seven receptions and 111 yards 锟斤拷 the third-highest yardage total of his career.

Kansas City’s power read Curtis McElhinney Jersey shovel offense has been a nightmare for defenses to deal with and it even claimed an ESPN cameraman as a victim Monday.

The rushing touchdown was the 10th of Smith’s five-year stint with the Chiefs, putting him one ahead of Len Dawson for the franchise record among quarterbacks.

Butker’s final field goal essentially won the game for the Chiefs, but Washington still had time for one more desperation play. It went horribly.
Game Mens Saku Koivu Jersey
But there was some significance to Justin Houston scooping up the ball and taking it into the end zone. With the touchdown, the Chiefs won 29-20 and covered the 6.5-point spread as well as the 47.5-point over/under.

That’s a huge win for some folks and the worst beat ever for those on Washington and/or the under.

The Steelers and Jaguars are both 3-2 after Sunday, and both are difficult to figure out.

The last pass of the game for Bortles came in the middle of the third quarter before the pair of pick sixes allowed the team to focus entirely on the run.

Jacksonville ended the game with 18 consecutive running plays, milking clock and grinding away with Leonard Fournette, who had 181 rushing yards and two touchdowns, including a 90-yard burst in the final minutes of the fourth quarter.

Elite Kids Warren Sapp Jersey When Jacksonville is clicking, it has a defense that’s a nightmare to score on and an offense that can grind away with Fournette. But then it can also be a team that struggles to move the ball with Bortles and makes egregious errors.

Pittsburgh earned impressive wins over the Vikings and Ravens but now has bad losses to the Bears and Jaguars on the record.

It’s impossible to pick just one, especially when there are 14 players — including Aaron Rodgers and his broken collarbone — on this week’s injury report. But the focus should be on the offensive line, given how important it’ll be to new starting quarterback Brett Hundley’s success. Of the three starters who dropped out of last Sunday’s loss at Minnesota, left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (concussion) at least practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.
Thomas Davis Womens Jersey
Michael Floyd (hamstring) joined Stefon Diggs (groin) on the injury report this week, leaving Minnesota with five active receivers in practice. After missing practice last week and Sunday’s game, Diggs remains the biggest injury concern despite Minnesota having three other non-participants on Wednesday: Sam Bradford (knee), Nick Easton (calf) and Anthony Barr (concussion/ankle).

Lambo made 52 of 64 field goal attempts and 70 of 78 PATs in two seasons with San Diego.

There still isn’t much hope for a playoff push this season, but the team has compiled a respectable 2-2 SU and 3-1 ATS record since that opening Sunday blowout. Jacoby Brissett hasn’t been sensational in the starting role under center, but he has at least been capable unlike Scott Tolzien was in his one start.

The Jaguars opted to keep Myers over fan favorite Josh Scobee, who also is the team’s all-time leading scorer (1,022), because of his strong leg. He had a rough season as a rookie in 2015. He missed seven PATs but only four field goals. He missed only three PATs but seven field goals in 2016.

Over parts of three seasons, Myers made only 10 of 19 field goal attempts of 50 or more yards (52.6 percent), which is well below the league average of 61.6 percent since he entered the league.

Lambo made 52 of 64 field goal attempts and 70 of 78 PATs in two seasons with San Diego. The Chargers surprisingly cut him in favor of undrafted rookie Younghoe Koo before the season began.

Intake counselor: So she didn’t call police because of something that had occurred when you guys went to the afterparty. She called the police because of what had happened before, right?

Sam Bradford tried to return from injury last week against the Chicago Bears, but his injured knee rendered him ineffective and unable to move from the pocket. Case Keenum was strong in relief, leading Minnesota to three scoring drives en route to a 20-17 road win over the Chicago Bears.

Keenum could be under center again Sunday for the Vikings, who are 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS so far this season. Minnesota is 8-2 SU and ATS in its last 10 home games when coming off of a loss in its most recent game at home.avalanche-025_8a427f9aa0d6a8ce-180x180

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette briefly leaves game vs. Rams with ankle injury

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette left the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams after a run appeared to hyperextend his right leg.
Limited Mens Stefan Charles Jersey
Fournette was taken to the medical tent to be evaluated further and quickly returned to the sideline where he tried to jog off the injury. The Jaguars announced the injury as an ankle problem and ruled him questionable to return.

Womens Tommylee Lewis Jersey Brate sits fourth at the position in fantasy points on the season. The one red flag here is that Brate is a part-time player. He has been on the field for only 58 percent of the team’s snaps, including 60 percent of the pass plays. He’s averaging 5.8 targets per game, which is solid, but he’ll need to keep up a fairly high target-to-snap ratio in order to sustain TE1 production. Howard has actually played 19 more snaps than Brate but is 17 behind in targets. Brate is a fringe TE1, and Howard is no more than a dynasty hold at this point.

Jermaine Kearse is wide open for a TD, and the Jets lead 17-7. Good night, Browns. You were powerless to protect your home turf from the juggernaut Jets as they cruised to 3-2 for a share of the AFC East lead. Fire up the Josh McCown Pro Bowl campaign!

Odell Beckham gets open behind the defense for a 48-yard touchdown. He celebrates by performing CPR on the ball.

OK, this is just a disastrous mockery of life-saving procedures. First of all, he didn’t even check his ABCs: Airway, Breathing, Circulation. He didn’t perform any rescue breathing. And he performs chest compressions by pumping his arms, which wastes energy; he should keep his arms straight and let his body weight to do the work. No wonder he spikes the ball; his life-saving efforts hastened its death.

This wasn’t the only indication that Bryant was invested in Sunday’s 19-13 Pittsburgh victory.

Kuechly was adamant that he didn’t want to change the way he plays the game he loves so much. He was back this season going hard in pursuit on every play, showing the passion that has made him the sentimental favorite in Carolina over Newton’s dabbing Superman.

Before the Panthers took on the Eagles, much was made about the Charlotte Observer story detailing how Kuechly had turned to an apparatus called a woodpecker collar that was designed to help prevent concussions.

There was the short sideline pass he turned into a 7-yard gain in the first quarter, the sort of play on which he routinely had been tackled this season for a loss or no gain. There was his 20-yard catch early in the second quarter on a crossing pattern. There was his arrival on the scene after Brown’s miraculous, had-to-have it touchdown in the fourth quarter and his engagement in Brown’s oddly choreographed celebration.

Drew Smyly Limited Jersey None of this seemed like the activity of a player fighting his way out of town, and yet after the Steelers had cleared their locker room and began their trip home, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that Bryant had recently requested a trade and that teammates and coaches were aware he is unhappy.
Authentic Youth George Fant Jersey
No. 6 seed 鈥?Dolphins (3-2): Third place, AFC East. For how much Jay Culter and the offense disappeared against the Saints and Jets, they made the necessary plays down the stretch to beat the Chargers, Titans and Falcons. They’re right in position to get back in the field as a wild card.

Who’s right behind: Broncos (3-2), Texans (3-3), Jets (3-3), Ravens (3-3). So much for Denver being above both Buffalo and Miami after that stunning home loss to the Giants, but it’s still right there with its closest competition. The Bills loss can come back to bite the Broncos later. Houston will gain steam as the pick to repeat in the South as long as Deshaun Watson keeps playing well.

Fantasy football consistency ratings: 2015-17

Using fantasy points determined by ESPN’s standard scoring, the charts contained in this column rate players based upon how consistently reliable they have been from the 2015 through 2017 seasons, a span of 39 weeks’ worth of games (17 weeks apiece in each year from 2015-16, five weeks in 2017). For IDPs (individual defensive players), the following scoring is used: solo tackle (1), assisted tackle (0.5), sack (3), interception (3), forced fumble (3), fumble recovery (3), touchdown (6), safety (2), pass defended (1). To familiarize you with some of the terminology and column headers listed in the charts below:

Richard Panik Game Jersey A St. Paul native who spent the final three seasons of a Hall of Fame career with the Twins, Molitor has earned the loyalty and respect of his players with an even-keeled demeanor and impressive grasp of the game. Prior to being hired as manager, he served as a roving instructor in the Twins’ minor league system, forging strong bonds with players like Brian Dozier, Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton that laid the groundwork for this season’s renaissance.

We’re still at the early stage of our business, said Pieology CEO Carl Chang, perhaps recognized by sports fans as the brother and former coach to tennis player Michael Chang. We recognize what KD can bring to us as a partner and investor and through the brand equity he adds, especially with his social following.

The move is another step away from traditional endorsements for Durant. Just three years ago, Durant had more endorsements than any other NBA player. They included deals with Skullcandy headphones, NBA2K, BBVA Compass bank, Neff, Orange Leaf Yogurt, KIND, Sparkling Ice and Sonic.

All those deals are now gone, and Kleiman has paired it down to just Beats by Dre, which is more of a content deal, Nike, American Family Insurance and Alaska Airlines.

He’s our skipper. He’s our leader,” Dozier said after the Twins were eliminated by the Yankees. He does so much, having his hands on every single thing. … When you’ve got a guy like that, we feel lucky.”

Opponents feasted on Jokic at the rim.

I am weirdly confident in the Nuggets, despite their glut of power forwards and embarrassing defense — second worst in the league last season. The first problem compounds the second. Denver will have to shoehorn the undersized (Will Barton) and oversized/slow (Juancho Hernangomez) into wing minutes behind Wilson Chandler. Teensy lineups featuring Barton, Gary Harris and Jamal Murray hemorrhaged points, per NBA.com.

He has lost weight, and has the smart feet to put of up more of a fight. Paul Millsap has been one of the league’s 10 or so best defenders over the past half-decade. Young guys pick up the nuances. For an awful defense, Denver bizarrely allowed the right sorts of shots; long 2-pointers comprised about 20 percent of opponent attempts, the highest such share in the league, per research from Ben Falk at Cleaning the Glass. They yielded relatively few 3s.

Of course, the other benefit to building up the bench with young talent is it gives you options to explore trading for potentially attainable star players. Everyone talks about how Boston is loaded in young assets to acquire another star, and yet Denver’s treasure chest isn’t far off. In addition to the young collection of talent, the Nuggets own all of their first-round picks moving forward. If they decide to fast-track contention, they have a variety of pieces that could be attractive in a bid to land Mike Conley, Kyle Lowry, Bradley Beal, CJ McCollum or someone of that caliber.
