Larry Fitzgerald is 3rd player to ever go 200 straight games with a reception

On Sunday, Larry Fitzgerald hauled in a 15-yard catch in the second quarter of the Arizona Cardinals’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles. It wasn’t anything special on the field — the 1,152nd reception in a long career — but it landed him among some elite company.

With his catch against the Eagles, Fitzgerald became just the third person in NFL history to have a reception in 200 straight games. Unlike the other two, Fitzgerald did it all with the same team. Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice went 274 straight games with a catch for the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders. Tight end Tony Gonzalez’s streak lasted 211 games during his time with the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons.

MoffettNathanson analyst Michael Nathanson reported that the NFL comparisons with last year will get harder after Week 9 — following Election Day 2016.

Despite the general trend, viewership by individual game or network remains erratic.

Credit Suisse analyst Omar Sheikh has just reduced his EPS estimate for CBS by 5 percent — in part because of soft ratings for its NFL broadcasts.

Any ratings-based forecasts by Sheikh or other analysts may be a function of high expectations going into the season, sources said.

CBS shares closed down 24 cents, to $56.66.

The NBA, and more importantly, the entire sport of basketball, has always been an inclusive environment, Burke said. To me, whether we are talking about the players, coaches, team management or anyone involved with the sport, it is about your game so to speak. sabres_011

Kareem Hunt Jersey badass stiff arm might have finally woken up the Chiefs

The Chiefs finally got the offense going in the third quarter of Sunday’s matchup with the Steelers. Kareem Hunt helped spark it with this absolutely badass stiff arm.

She said he then lifted her up and threw her on the bed. She claimed Elliott told her, I’m not dealing with your dumb ass anymore and then Try to leave and see what happens. She told the intake counselor that she was too scared to leave.

Marvin Jones exploded for six catches, 96 yards and one touchdown on 14 targets against New Orleans in Week 6. Jones now sits 26th among wide receivers in fantasy points, which means the Lions’ offense is currently supporting two starting-caliber fantasy receivers (Golden Tate sits 12th). Jones has been on the field for 94 percent of the Lions’ snaps and 99 percent of the pass plays, and he is handling a 19 percent target share (6.8 per game). All three are up from last season. Jones fell off the map after a quick start last season, but an increasing target share in an average offense that likes to throw the ball should keep him in the flex mix moving forward.

Elliott was caught on camera pulling down a woman’s top during a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dallas. The woman’s bare breast was exposed in public. No charges were filed, but the NFL reviewed the incident and spoke to the woman. In its letter to Elliott, the NFL said your behavior during this event was inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for women.

Although the incident did not factor into his suspension, the league told him it suggests a pattern of poor judgment and behavior.

Gerald McCoy Mens Jersey Elliott and his team met with the investigation’s four outside advisors: Peter Harvey, a former New Jersey attorney general; Kenneth Houston, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame; Tonya Lovelace, a domestic violence expert and CEO of the Women of Color Network, Inc.; and Mary Jo White, a former U.S Attorney.

The Giants looked great in Sunday night’s victory over the Denver Broncos Jersey.

Beckham has been a safety net for quarterback Eli Manning throughout his brief career. On the plays that Beckham has sat out since 2014, Manning has been much more conservative (an average of 1 yard fewer downfield per pass) and much more prone to interceptions (2.3 percent interception rate with Beckham on the field; 3.7 with him off).

Authentic Mens Tom Wilson Jersey There’s no quid pro quo going on, Mara said. There’s no specific expectation. We want the players to stand. We want everybody to stand. But we’re not going to require them to do that.

Trump was on Twitter Wednesday morning to assail the league’s inaction on the issue, writing: The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!

The true impact of Edelman’s torn ACL might not come until the playoffs. (I’m operating under the assumption that the Patriots will get there.) Simply put, Edelman has been the NFL’s most productive postseason receiver since his rookie year of 2009.

Kaepernick’s grievance asserts that Trump did much more, however. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have posted tweets and engaged in various public relations stunts designed to retaliate against Mr. Kaepernick and other players, it states.

The grievance observes that several owners have been quoted describing their communications with President Trump, who had been an organizing force in the collusion. This includes Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the subject of a Trump tweet on Sept. 27. Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday, it read. Players will stand for Country!

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey confident Giants will let him return this week

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie may be back from suspension sooner than expected.
Nick Vigil Authentic Jersey
The Giants cornerback is confident the team will let him return as early as this week after being suspended indefinitely on Thursday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported.

Multiple reports have said the other passenger was Langi’s wife and three others were reportedly injured in the three-car accident. Reports also said that Langi and his wife suffered injuries that were serious, but not life threatening.

The Patriots listed Langi as out for Sunday’s game with a back injury on the official injury report, according to ProFootballTalk.
Limited Nat Moore Jersey
Langi has played in one game this season for the Patriots and was an undrafted player out of Brigham Young University.

As for Beathard, unless he turns into this era’s Tom Brady, nothing he can do from now on will move him ahead of Cousins as the 49ers’ priority for 2018. But no one thought Tom Brady would turn into Tom Brady.

Cousins may or may not have had to do much at all Sunday to convince the 49ers that they should take the plunge on him when, presumably, he hits the open market in the offseason. If he didn’t play poorly, didn’t get hurt, and didn’t look as wretched as Hoyer did, he’d pass the in-person eyeball test. He did none of the above.

Then again, he didn’t look that much better, as the established starter for one team and the future starter for another, than did the youngster seeing his first real NFL action. Small sample size, but Beathard earned a larger one.

So in Cousins’ audition, he got upstaged by an emergency fill-in. That’s one thing in October. It’s something else entirely if it happens next March.

Lonzo Ball out vs. Kings, could sit for rest of preseason

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball was ruled out of his third straight preseason game with a sprained left ankle, and his status for the remainder of the preseason is uncertain.

Ball did not play Sunday night against the Sacramento Kings and on Monday was ruled out of Tuesday’s game against the Utah Jazz. Lakers coach Luke Walton said Sunday that Ball is still having difficulty moving side to side and did not rule out the possibility of the No. 2 overall pick sitting out the remainder of the preseason.

“It’s true,” Wade said with a laugh when informed of the shade already being thrown his team’s way. “We would have been great in 2011! Yeah, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still be good now. It’s a different time. And I think back then, we was young guys who were in our primes and playing the way that we could play at that time, and then you make adjustments to your game, to your body, to your age and people don’t give you enough credit for that.

While he never officially left the game for good, Carlos Hyde has been dealing with a hip injury, which already had Breida on the radar. In Week 5, Breida had a career-high 10 carries, good for 49 yards; his touch count has gone up in each game so far this season, and the 49ers are going to continue to find work for him. He has shown well since being signed as an undrafted free agent. If Hyde is forced to miss any time going forward, Breida immediately jumps into flex territory. He’s a must add for all Hyde owners and anyone looking for a speculative back add.ravens_132

Davis makes frequent appearances on FS1’s Speak for Yourself with Colin Cowherd and Jason Whitlock in Los Angeles.

Despite the ESPN and Fox Sports rivalry, Davis will still be free to appear on FS1, according to ESPN spokeswoman Belen Michelis.

Davis spent 13 years in the NFL with the 49ers, Panthers, Broncos and Lions. He’s been busy in sports media, working for ESPNLA, NFL Network and Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

A potential franchise passer has to rise to the top of a team’s draft board when that team is in need of the most important position in the sport. I can somewhat understand the apprehension over Wentz coming out of North Dakota State, but I still would have taken him at No. 2 overall rather than trading the pick because of his obvious physical gifts.
Matt Prater Authentic Jersey
Watson is a different story. There should have been no cause for concern about drafting the Clemson product, who I had rated as my top draft-eligible player regardless of position, after his stellar college career.

Many around the league have noticed the rifts in the Steelers locker room and Ward simply echoed those worries.

Yes, the talent is there, he said. But is the leadership there in the locker room?

2017 second overall pick Mitchell Trubisky Jersey made his NFL debut on Monday night.

The rookie was limited to 25 pass attempts, but his target distribution is worth a look as we try to determine if any of his pass-catchers will have fantasy relevance moving forward. Zach Miller paced the team with seven targets, and fellow tight end Dion Sims handled four.

That works out to a hefty 44 percent of the Trubisky’s throws, which is notable, considering that quarterbacks facing Minnesota directed an NFL-high 66 percent of their throws at the wide receiver position coming into the week. This suggests Miller could be a high-volume target moving forward and thus sneak into the TE1 mix. Kendall Wright paced the team’s wide receivers with five targets, and though he appears to be atop the depth chart, he’s no more than a bye-week desperation flex at this point. Markus Wheaton (four targets) and Tre McBride (one) were the only other wide receivers targeted. Benny Cunningham (three) seems to be settling in as the third-down back, which has limited targets to Tarik Cohen (one) and Jordan Howard (zero).

20.9 percent chance. The schedule is not a friend of the Buccaneers right now. Not only do they have the second-most difficult remaining strength of schedule, they have to play six of their next eight on the road.

51.5 percent chance. Sam Bradford’s health is a concern, but Case Keenum has more than held his own, keeping the Vikings’ playoff chances over 50 percent. How good has Keenum been? Only Drew Brees and Alex Smith have thrown more passes without a pick this season.

Limited Kids Xavien Howard Jersey The Redskins’ defense is arguably the most underrated unit in the NFL right now; it’s ceded the ninth-fewest points per drive and has the seventh-highest sack rate (per dropback) in the NFL. The 49ers could be a rewarding matchup to target this week, as they’ve netted just 5.32 yards per dropback (fourth fewest in the league) and the second-lowest touchdown rate (per attempt) in the NFL. — McCormick

Vikings QB Sam Bradford Jersey expected back Monday vs. Bears

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford was expected to make his return for Monday night’s game against the Bears in Chicago after missing three games with a left knee injury.

Coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN in a production meeting Sunday for Monday Night Football that he anticipates Bradford will start.

As a result, earlier this year players from six schools with exams after June 1 were affected: Northwestern, Oregon, Oregon State and Stanford, UCLA and Washington. Three top 10 picks in the 2017 draft, Solomon Thomas and Christian McCaffrey of Stanford, and John Ross of Washington, were delayed in joining their new teams. McCaffrey had expressed his frustration with the old rule because he was no longer enrolled in school.

It sucks. It’s really tough, McCaffrey said, via the Panthers website.

Mens Troy Polamalu Jersey The new agreement, reached in a deal between the NFL and the American Football Coaches Association, stipulates that rookies who are still enrolled in school cannot be compelled to join their team. They also must be given sufficient time to help them complete their studies and/or exams. The player’s academic progress will be jointly monitored by their NFL team and the school’s academic advisors.

Elite Youth Johnny Gaudreau Jersey Cole Beasley, Cowboys: Just as he was last season, Beasley was a valuable cog for Prescott on Sunday, converting his six targets into 18.3 PPR and 14.3 non-PPR fantasy points. Remember, Beasley caught a team-high 74 of Prescott’s throws and tied for his most targets (96, with Dez Bryant) last season. Beasley, started in just 5.4 percent of ESPN leagues on Sunday, could be a handy fill-in for fantasy owners during the bye weeks once he returns from his team’s own bye in Week 6.

Having Hitchens back will help take some of the pressure off linebacker Jaylon Smith having to play every snap.

Linebacker Sean Lee missed his fourth straight practice because of a hamstring strain, and the Cowboys could look to give him another week of rest with their bye coming in Week 6. Lee’s absence hurt the Cowboys last week, but they could see linebacker Anthony Hitchens return from a tibial plateau fracture to play for the first time this season Sunday against Green Bay. Hitchens played weakside linebacker in 2014 when Lee missed the season with a knee injury. Having Hitchens back will help take some of the pressure off linebacker Jaylon Smith having to play every snap. — Todd Archer

Mina Kimes, senior writer: Packers over Cowboys. Green Bay crushed Chicago despite enduring a slew of injuries, and while the team is still missing a number of pieces, it’s feasible that Mike Daniels, arguably its best player on defense, will return after the long break. Aaron Rodgers was mostly unflappable last Thursday behind his makeshift offensive line (thanks in part to guard Lane Taylor’s impressive play as a stand-in tackle), and should have no problem carving up Dallas’ mediocre pass defense.

Mike Sando, senior NFL writer: Buccaneers over Patriots. Tampa Bay can win at home against New England on a short week, on the thinking that the Patriots won’t have time to make the coaching adjustments their defense clearly needs.

Kevin Seifert, national NFL writer: Bills over Bengals. Cincinnati is going to have a tough time getting much going against Buffalo’s defense, which is allowing the fewest points per game (13.5) in the NFL.texans_102

Ben Roethlisberger Jersey says calling out bad behavior part of QB’s job

A day after making pointed comments about Antonio Brown’s sideline behavior, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said holding players accountable is part of the job description.

Authentic Womens Lac Edwards Jersey On Tuesday, Roethlisberger told 93.7 the Fan that he was disappointed in Brown’s temper tantrum during Sunday’s 26-9 win over the Baltimore Ravens. After not getting the ball downfield, Brown flipped a Gatorade bucket and angrily shrugged off offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

I’d like to feel as a leader of this team that’s kind of my job, said Roethlisberger, 35, citing 14 years of NFL quarterback experience. You have to be able to talk to people, you have to be able to communicate in different ways. I’ve been doing this a long time. I feel as voted as a captain that’s kind of one of the rules of being the captain.

Seattle will try to pile on after beating the Indianapolis Colts 46-18. It was by far Seattle’s best effort as it finally established a running game to complement Russell Wilson’s pinpoint passing.

The Seahawks rolled up a season-high 194 rushing yards and Wilson had the most accurate game of his career in connecting on 21 of 26 passes.

Authentic Kids Blair Walsh Jersey When you’re running the football, there’s kind of an energy about it that you can play off of, Carroll said. But there’s also the fact that you’re running the football and it allows you to work all the passing game stuff that comes off of it, which we love to do. When it’s working, there’s a sense that you have of it, and it plays right to our style.

Carroll knows the Rams’ style all too well — he won a national championship with a high-octane attack. Come Sunday, he’ll be trying to stop one.

We’ve seen the Rams and they have been explosive on offense and has really controlled the ball, Carroll said. It’s a tremendous turnaround for their program.

Spoken like a one-time college coach.
