  1. It started last week against two-time defending AFC champion New England Womens Ben Jones Jersey , which ended Jacksonville's season in January. The Jaguars won the rematch going away, a 31-20 victory that arguably made them the favorite in the conference.Now, the Jaguars (2-0) get AFC South rival Tennessee. The Titans (1-1) swept the season series in 2017 and have won four of the last five meetings."Losing to a team twice, at their house and here, that wasn't cool," linebacker Myles Jack said Wednesday. "We're not too happy about that. That's obviously being talked about this week. The New England game was one thing, but this is a team that literally beat us twice in one year. We've got to fix that."Tennessee scored 30 unanswered points in the first meeting last year Womens Tajae Sharpe Jersey , running for 179 yards, taking advantage of three turnovers and winning 37-16.The Jaguars weren't much better three months later, turning the ball over four times in a 15-10 loss in the final week of the regular season . Jacksonville played all its starters despite having secured the division title."The Titans were the one team we really didn't have an answer for," safety Tashaun Gipson said. "They outplayed us in every facet of the game. We were truly outmatched, from the home opener last year to the game before the playoffs."Obviously, we want to get our lick back in a sense."What really irked the Jaguars was talk in Tennessee's locker room suggesting the Titans should have been AFC South champs."I know a lot of people heard about that," Gipson said. "We feel like we're the better team and we feel it's time for us to show it. These are games we're supposed to win."The Titans have been less chatty and more complimentary this week."At the end of the day Womens Ryan Succop Jersey , they're the division champs and they got that title, so it's going to be key for us to go out there and take it," defensive lineman Jurrell Casey said. "It doesn't matter what happened last year. They're the champs right now and they got the lead in the division."Jacksonville's Payback Tour doesn't end this week, either. The team hosts New York Jets next week. The Jets beat Jacksonville in overtime last year.Throw in the season opener at the New York Giants ? Tom Coughlin's first game against the team that pushed him out the coaching door 鈥?and it's essentially a four-game stretch of revenge."We've got a lot of rivalries, so to speak, on the schedule," defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. "It's a good temperature gauger of where we are and where we want to be."No team has beaten Jacksonville more times than Tennessee.The Titans handed the Jags their most heartbreaking loss in franchise history http://www.titanscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-taylor-lewan-jersey , a 33-14 setback in the AFC title game in January 2000. Jacksonville had the NFL's best record, home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and even led 14-10 at halftime before collapsing. Tenneesse was the only team to beat Jacksonville that season, accomplishing it three times.The Titans also handed Jacksonville one of its most embarrassing losses in team history, a 36-22 drubbing in 2016 that was much worse than the fine score indicated. The Jags trailed 27-0 at halftime on national television, getting outgained by nearly 300 yards."They really did just beat the (crap) out of us," said defensive tackle Abry Jones, one of seven current Jags defenders who started that game.The Titans have won six of nine in the series.New England had won eight straight against Jacksonville before last week's breakthrough victory. Players spent eight months counting down the days until they faced Tom Brady again.They've waited even longer to play the Titans."Anyway you can find a way to get yourself up for a game Cheap Kevin Byard Jersey ," Jack said. "For example, us losing to the them twice would be my motivation. You've got to find a way to hate your opponent."AP Sports Writer Teresa Walker in Nashville, Tennessee, contributed to this report. The Titans should hold steady in most power rankings around the internet today after being on the bye. This exercise gets easier and easier with each passing week because we pretty much know what teams are at this point. I have been trying to identify teams that I still might be too high or too low on. The one that stood out to me this week was the Washington Redskins. They are apparently better than I have been giving them credit for. They are 5-2 and have a 2 game lead in the NFC East. I still don’t think they are a Super Bowl contender, but I did bump them up a little bit this week.Here are my week 9 NFL power rankings:Los Angeles Rams (LW:1)Kansas City Chiefs (LW:2)New Orleans Saints (LW:3)New England Patriots (LW:4)Los Angeles Chargers (LW:6)Minnesota Vikings (LW:5)Carolina Panthers (LW:7)Philadelphia Eagles (LW:9)Pittsburgh Steelers (LW:10)Green Bay Packers (LW:8)Atlanta Falcons (LW:11)Cincinnati Bengals (LW:13)Baltimore Ravens (LW:12)Washington Redskins (LW:17)Chicago Bears (LW:15)Houston Texans (LW:18)Detroit Lions (LW:14)Seattle Seahawks (LW:20)Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW:16)Miami Dolphins (LW:19)Tennessee Titans (LW:21)Indianapolis Colts (LW:27)Jacksonville Jaguars (LW:22)Denver Broncos (LW:23)Dallas Cowboys (LW:24)New York Giants (LW:25)Cleveland Browns (LW:26)Arizona Cardinals (LW:30)New York Jets (LW:28)San Francisco 49ers (LW:29)Buffalo Bills (LW:31)Oakland Raiders (LW:32)
  2. It began with NFL insider Jason La Canfora calling the Eagles a “sleeper team” to acquire the Pittsburgh Steelers running back. Then he reported the Eagles have “interest” in Bell. The latest from La Canfora is that the Eagles “have been mulling the potential of a Bell trade for a while now.” From his CBS column: In addition to all of this http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/jason-kelce-jersey-cheap , Bell told ESPN earlier this week that he believes the Eagles are one of the teams that have interest in acquiring him. I’ve already explained why the Eagles acquiring Bell could be complicated. For that reason, I can’t just easily expect the trade to happen. But it’s hard to ignore La Canfora continually insisting that the Eagles are in on Bell. And with Howie Roseman (whom La Canfora is well-connected to) being an aggressive executive, I wouldn’t put it past him to be able to pull it off. We’ll see.It must be noted that Bell can’t be traded until he signs his franchise tender. The Eagles have until 4:00 PM on October 30 to make a deal before the NFL trade deadline expires. The Jacksonville Jaguars’ defense has struggled recently, but still rank as a top tier unit over the life of the season and will present unique challenges to the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles’ offense. In this final preview http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/rodney-mcleod-jersey-cheap , The Kist & Solak Show dives deep into what the Jaguars do schematically and how it fits their talent-laden unit.Two major topics concerning the Jaguars defense were their pass rush looks and their deployment of three safety sets against 12/13 personnel. Due to the lack of dependable weapons at receiver outside of Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, the Eagles run a combination of two and three tight end sets 46% of the time, a league high.The Jaguars are facing 12/13 sets 33% of the time, which is the 3rd highest frequency due to their weakness against it last year. In the offseason Youth Jalen Mills Jersey , to combat this trend, they drafted safety Ronnie Harrison in the third round to bring him in on big nickel and big base sets (where they only field one cornerback). The Eagles ability to be effective against this look will play a big part in their success on Sunday.We also placed bets on the Eagles’ running game, placing the over/under of rush yards at 75. Despite ranking 9th in rush defense DVOA (per Football Outsiders) for the season, the Jaguars have given up over 100 yards five times this year http://www.eaglescheapauthenticstore.com/malcolm-jenkins-jersey-cheap , including 206 to the Dallas Cowboys two weeks ago. The Eagles have gone over 100 yards four times this year, but only 58 last week. How much faith do we have in running back group right now? Not much.Also on the show, we celebrating achieving over 500 five star ratings by reading the best iTunes reviews and answer the question “do you guys know the names of coverages and routes or something?” All that and more on The Kist & Solak Show #34; stream it on the media player below or click here if the player doesn’t load.

  3. This week http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ka_imi-fairbairn-jersey , the SB Nation NFL sites are talking records.As a SB Nation NFL site, BRB is charged with joining the fray.And so we shall!Here’s a list of Texans franchise single-season records.While the Texans haven’t exactly been world-beaters for the majority of their existence, they have had some truly superlative single season performances from exceptional players.Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, J.J. Watt, even Owen Daniels’ 70 receptions at tight end in 2008...there are some impressive stats in there.My question to you, gentle reader:Which of the Texans’ single season marks do you think is the least likely to ever be broken?As crazy as it might sound D.J. Reader Jersey , given the player who holds the record, I’d put my money on the answer to that question being David Carr’s completion percentage in 2006 (68.3%).That accomplishment is not only the high water mark for the Texans; it’s also tied for the 27th best in NFL history.That was Carr’s final season in Houston (and Gary Kubiak’s first); it featured a TON of short, quick drops that didn’t require the first overall pick of the 2002 NFL Draft to progress beyond his primary read.Oddly enough, Carr’s significant limitations as a quarterback—the very ones that led to the Texans bringing Matt Schaub in via trade with the Falcons in March of 2007 and cutting ties with Carr two days later—somehow resulted in a franchise record that may never be broken.That’s my take, anyway.What say you? J.J. Watt Rewriting The Record Books Again Last Sunday J.J. Watt set yet another NFL record, having consecutive games with multiple sacks for the seventh time in his career. While Andrew Luck certainly wasn’t happy to see Watt and Clowney comin’, Houston Texans fans need these few rays of sunshine in the dark storm of a season 2018 is shaping up to be. While Watt still needs to chase down more quarterbacks Authentic Christian Covington Jersey , the player he’s spent the most time chasing is Hall of Fame defensive lineman Reggie White. Watt is now second to White in several statistical categories, including fastest to reach 80 career sacks and most games with consecutive sacks. J.J. Watt:While this weekend might prove a little harder for J.J. and his teammates to continue the trend of offensive backfield mayhem when facing a more formidable Dallas Cowboys offensive line and a more mobile quarterback in Dak Prescott, chances are Watt and Clowney will find a way. Let us have your predictions. What does Watt’s game against the Dallas Cowboys look like on Sunday night? Does J.J. Watt destroy Prescott? Will he come back to earth or continue to wreck the offense with the help of Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus (who’s due for a big game), Duke Ejiofor, and the rest of Romeo Crennel’s kids?
  4. Steelers News: For Ben Roethlisberger http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-marcus-gilbert-jersey , the only thing that matters are wins and losses The Pittsburgh Steelers are finally in the win column after their prime-time win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Raymond James Stadium. Something I did last season and I’m going to start again is the Black-and-Gold Links article. This is an article where I take stories from quality news sources across the Internet, and add them here for your viewing pleasure. I won’t be posting the entire articles, but I’ll link each story and author so that you can read the full article. Today we talk about Ben Roethlisberger being at the stage of his career where it doesn’t matter what kind of statistics he puts up, it’s strictly a mat wins and losses.Let’s get to the news:Kevin Gorman: Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger not focused on statsBy: Kevin Gorman, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewBen Roethlisberger has thrown for 300 yards or more in each of the first three games, something the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback had never previously done to start a season.What should be the twilight of his 15-year NFL career has instead seen Roethlisberger respond with personal-record performances, more out of necessity for a team that can’t seem to stop opposing offenses.Passing for 353 yards and three touchdowns in the Steelers’ 30-27 victory at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football earned Roethlisberger AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors, but he’s focused on a different set of numbers: The Steelers’ 1-1-1 record.“Honestly, I’d rather be 3-0 and not throw for 300. For me, it’s always about winning and losing,” Roethlisberger said Wednesday. “But I also think that’s the direction offenses are going and games are going. You look at the number of points that are being scored and I think you’ve got to keep up with the Joneses, if you will.”For Big Ben, it’s been about keeping up with the Mahomeses and Fitzpatricks, if you will.Patrick Mahomes threw for 326 yards and six scoring passes, outplaying Roethlisberger even as he rallied the Steelers from a 21-point, first-quarter deficit by passing for 452 yards and three touchdowns. Ryan Fitzpatrick, conversely, came up short after leading the Bucs back from a 20-point halftime deficit by passing for 411 yards and three scores.Roethlisberger ranks second in the NFL in passing yards, yet is rankled more that the Steelers didn’t start the season 3-0 as their schedule suggested they would. Instead, they are tied with the Cleveland Browns (again) for last place in the AFC North.“Well, we’ve only got one win,” Roethlisberger said. “To me and the offense and Randy (Fichtner) David DeCastro Jersey , it’s not about stats. It’s about winning and losing. We didn’t put up any goals this year, in terms of points or yards or where we wanted to rank. We just wanted to win football games. So, to have only one win, I would say offensively we’re not doing our job.”Backup O-linemen BJ Finney, Matt Feiler prove worth in start against BuccaneersBy: Joe Rutter, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewDown two starters on the right side of the offensive line, Ben Roethlisberger had chances to change play calls directed to that side of the formation Monday night against Tampa Bay. Like he also has done so many times with his right arm this season, Roethlisberger passed.“There wasn’t one change I made,” Roethlisberger said Wednesday. “(Offensive coordinator) Randy (Fichtner) might have called something to put a tight end over there, but when we were in the no-huddle and I was calling plays, I didn’t think about it one time.”Such was the comfort level Roethlisberger had with a right side that featured Matt Feiler making his first career start at right tackle and B.J. Finney starting for the second time at right guard.With the newcomers helping pass protect for Roethlisberger and block for running back James Conner, the Steelers put up 413 net yards in a 30-27 victory at Raymond James Stadium.“To me, that’s the ultimate compliment to the two guys out there,” Roethlisberger said. “Obviously, Finney plays a lot (at other spots), so that’s not new but for ‘Anchor’ to be out there, I thought he did a great job.”According to Pro Football Focus, Finney (72.3) and Feiler (67.9) were the highest-graded Steelers linemen in the game. The web site graded Finney as allowing just three pressures in 114 pass blocks over two games while replacing injured All-Pro right guard David DeCastro.“I know they are really good friends, and it showed,” DeCastro said. “They did good job holding it down on that side.”Joe Haden says he received drug test at 3 a.m. TuesdayBy: Jeremy Fowler, ESPNCornerback Joe Haden has a new item for the NFL absurdity file, thanks to the drug test waiting for him after the Steelers’ flight home from Tampa, Florida.Haden said he received a drug test around 3 a.m. Tuesday, more than three hours after the Steelers’ 30-27 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.”Right when we left Tampa they were like, ‘Joe Authentic Javon Hargrave Jersey , when we land, you’ve got a drug test,’” said Haden, who tweeted about the test this week.“It was me, (kicker Chris) Boswell had one -- it was like seven of us that had a drug test. I was like, ‘Dude, you can just tell me to come back in the morning.’ I don’t get it,” he said.Players around the league are randomly selected for drug testing throughout the season, and they must be ready to report upon notification. Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell plans to return to the team in Week Seven. Before he signs his franchise tender, there’s one specific issue of business that may need to be addressed.If the Steelers apply for a two-week roster exemption for Bell, the Steelers and Bell will be required to agree in writing regarding his compensation for those two weeks, before he signs the tender. The labor deal, which sets forth that procedure, says nothing about resolving any disagreement that may arise regarding the question of whether Bell should get his full $855,000 even if he’s not on the active roster for two weeks.So the two sides will either work it out, or they won’t. And if the Steelers tell Bell that: (1) they intend to put him on the roster exempt list for two weeks; and (2) they will only pay him, for example, 25 percent of what he’s due to make, Bell may decide not to sign the tender, after all.It’s an important issue to keep in mind, now that Bell has made clear that he’ll be blinking, in two weeks. Over the next two weeks, Bell and the Steelers will have to figure out a small detail that could end up being a big deal, if the Steelers decide to drive a hard bargain with Bell.

Mike will have winners and loser later tonight and a couple of great film breakdowns throughout the week.GO TITANS!! The New York Jets' starting QB is TBD for Sunday.Sam Darnold and Josh McCown were both limited at practice for the second straight day, leaving it uncertain who will be under center at Tennessee.Coach Todd Bowles said Thursday that Darnold, McCown and Davis Webb each had snaps and ran the offense during drills."We'll see who's the healthiest http://www.titansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brett-kern-jersey ," Bowles said. "All of them are taking reps right now and we'll make that decision as the week goes."It would appear the choice will come down to either Darnold or McCown, especially since Webb hasn't yet taken a regular-season snap in the NFL and was on the practice squad until Darnold was hurt.Darnold has missed the past two games with a strain in his right foot. He showed progress Wednesday by participating in team drills for the first time since being injured against Miami on Nov. 4. Bowles said Darnold had no soreness in the foot Thursday, and wouldn't rule out starting the rookie even if he's limited Friday."I'll see how he feels, how it goes and how he looks in practice," Bowles said, "and I'll make that determination."McCown is dealing with a sore hand and back. His right hand was cut when he banged it on a helmet during the Jets' loss last Sunday to New England. McCown played through it, though, and could be in line for his third straight start if Darnold isn't ready to play.Bowles didn't seem overly concerned about the quarterback situation and whether it puts the Jets in a tough situation by having two of them limited at practice at this point in the practice week."No Tajae Sharpe Jersey ," Bowles said simply, "we're good."New York got some positive news on the injury front with wide receiver Robby Anderson (ankle) and running back Trenton Cannon (hamstring) both returning to practice on a limited basis after sitting out Wednesday. Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (ankle) had a full practice a day after being limited.Andre Roberts, New York's primary returner on special teams, was limited with a foot issue 鈥?a new injury Thursday."He was sore," Bowles said. "He was nicked up a little bit, so we kind of held him back some."On defense, it appears safety Marcus Maye will miss his second straight game with shoulder and thumb injuries. He didn't practice again Thursday and Bowles acknowledged "it doesn't look good" for the second-year player's chances of playing.Linebacker Jordan Jenkins (shoulder) had a full practice a day after being limited.
  6. The NFL trade deadline expires tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET on Tuesday Color Rush Jake Elliott Jersey , October 30. Most of the trade rumors involving the Eagles have been focused on running backs, wide receivers, or cornerbacks. It only makes sense since those are positions of need for Philadelphia. But those aren’t the only positions where the Eagles could use some help. Defensive line is also a significant need with the Eagles relying on guys like Treyvon Hester and Bruce Hector to play meaningful snaps at defensive tackle. Derek Barnett’s injury has also forced the Eagles into using less of a rotation at defensive end. It’s clear the coaching staff doesn’t have a ton of trust in Josh Sweat considering the rookie only played four defensive snaps in Week 8.The Eagles’ need for defensive line help is what inspired this trade idea from ESPN’s Mike Sando:Again, the idea of adding to the defensive line isn’t a terrible one. But this ain’t it Youth Cameron Johnston Jersey , chief. Robinson isn’t a Jernigan-like player who’s going to push the pocket. This is a guy who has 2.5 sacks and eight quarterback hits in 38 career games played. Zero of those stats have come this season. It’s true that Robinson is a really good run defender. But the Eagles, who are allowing the fourth fewest rushing yards per game this season, don’t need to be spending a valuable fourth-round pick for this kind of player. Also, I feel like this is some terrible logic by the NFL evaluator that Sando consulted here. The Eagles should give up a higher pick for a player who is lesser than Damon Harrison? Robinson is younger and cheaper than Harrison but that doesn’t move the needle enough.Eagles’ red zone passing concepts remain superb The Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles have continued their success in the most important area of the field, the red zone. Last year they ranked tops in the league in converting trips to the red area into touchdowns (64%). This year they’re punching it in at an uber-efficient 70%. You can point to a positive regression to red zone running, which would be true. Wendell Smallwood’s 4-yard touchdown makes the Eagles 3 for 5 when turning runs from within 5 yards of the end zone into scores. You could also point to Carson Wentz’s return, who connected with Dallas Goedert for a 13-yard touchdown on the opening drive using a design that looked very familiar.Last year in Week 12 http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-jason-kelce-jersey , the Eagles beat the Chicago Bears with a variation on the “spot” concept. First, what is a spot?Bleacher Report NFL 101From the Inside the Pylon glossary:Reading the initial action of the play, Bears’ safety Adrian Amos banked on the corner route, which tight end Zach Ertz sells by stemming outside. But instead of running the corner, Ertz ran what the Eagles call a “copper route”. This is a corner-post or as it’s known in the “Air Coryell” system design by former Chargers’ head coach Don Coryell, a “bang-8”.Combined with a familiar route combination that every defensive back has seen hundreds of times, the bang-8/copper route can be deadly.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.If it worked once http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-destiny-vaeao-jersey , why not dial it up again? In Week 3 in their 20-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts, that’s exactly what the Eagles did. Exclusively utilizing 13 personnel (1 running back, 3 tight ends) paired with a busy tempo, they marched down to the Colts’ 13-yard line. On 2nd and 9, Wentz found Goedert on the same spot copper he found Ertz with months ago.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.The Eagles have a full bag of tricks with a bevy of new takes on old designs and dialing them up at the right time and in the red zone remains Doug Pederson’s specialty. With Wentz back and one game in the books during his return tour, expect more new and old wrinkles with the Eagles’ passing attack when they get within striking distance.
  7. Texans defensive end J.J. Watt missed 24 games over the past two seasons www.houstontexansteamonline.com , making only 1.5 sacks in 2016-17 combined.Instead, Watt is making a case not only for comeback player of the year but defensive player of the year yet again.He is tied for the NFL lead with seven sacks, leads the Texans with 11 quarterback hits and has eight tackles for loss. Watt also has four forced fumbles, which ties for the league lead with Khalil Mack.In other words, J.J. Watt looks like J.J. Watt again.“There’s plenty of progress to be made Houston Texans T-Shirt ,” Watt said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I missed a sack this last game; I missed a sack two weeks ago. There’s just little things here and there. I’m always trying to improve, whether it’s my first step, my hand placement.“When I go back and watch the film, I click through the good plays fast. It’s the bad plays that you watch in slow motion Houston Texans Hats , you try to figure out, ‘OK, where were my eyes? Where was my focus? What are my keys? Why did I do this? What step do I need to take?

  8. The visiting Carolina Panthers were winners of their previous three games Authentic Vince Williams Jersey , with the host Pittsburgh Steelers winning their previous four. Something had to give, and after the Panthers failed to nail the coin toss, the Steelers elected to defer to the second half, giving Cam Newton and company the football first to start the game.It didn’t take the Panthers long to strike first. After three huge runs by Christian McCaffrey, the Steelers’ defense looked to have held the Panthers to a field goal, but Ron Rivera elected to go for it on 4th and 1. McCaffrey got two on the fourth down play, and following the first down Newton hit McCaffrey on a swing pass for a 20 yard touchdown. With less than 5 minutes gone in the first quarter, the Panthers took a 7-0 lead.On the Steelers’ first play from scrimmage, Ben Roethlisberger hit JuJu Smith-Schuster over the top for a stunning 75 yard catch and run for a touchdown. After the Chris Boswell point after, the game was tied 7-7 in the blink of an eye.Newton and company took the field deep in their own end after a holding call on the ensuing kickoff. When Newton tried to roll to his right, he was met by T.J. Watt in the endzone. Rather than taking a sack for a safety, he tried to force the ball to a receiver, only to have it picked off by Vince Williams and returned for a touchdown. In the blink of an eye, the Steelers went from trailing 7-0, to leading 14-7. After the Pittsburgh defense forced a three-and-out, and the Steelers did what they had been doing every time they got the ball — scored touchdowns. On the team’s first real offensive drive, it was a beautiful mix of short passes to Antonio Brown, a JuJu Smith-Schuster reverse and several punishing James Conner runs. The drive was capped off when Conner rumbled into the endzone for a two-yard touchdown giving the Steelers a 21-7 lead.After a Carolina drive resulted in yet another punt, Roethlisberger and company went back to work and were able to add to their lead. This drive, which started at their own 8 yard line, had a little bit of everything. Roosevelt Nix had two receptions, and Antonio Brown burned the entire defense to get the team into field goal range. However, that is where the drive stalled, and a Chris Boswell 50-yard field goal made the score 24-7.Needing a drive to stay in the game, Newton and McCaffrey responded in a big way by hitting McCaffrey again for his second receiving touchdown of the game with about 5:00 left on the clock in the second quarter.5 minutes left on the clock, and two timeouts, was a lot of time left on the clock, and the Steelers wouldn’t even need that much time to strike again. After a key third down pass to Ryan Switzer Youth Bud Dupree Jersey , Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a bomb down the sideline for the Steelers touchdown.The Boswell point after kick made the score 31-17 with 3 minutes left in the first half. The 31-17 score would hold into halftime.The second half started with the Steelers getting the football, and doing what they’ve done the entire game to this point. Roethlisberger continued to be money on third downs, hitting Switzer and Smith-Schuster for key conversions, and capped the drive off with a touchdown pass to Vance McDonald. The Boswell point after was good, giving the Steelers a 38-14 lead with 8 minutes left in the third quarter.Pittsburgh’s defense continued to harass Newton every time he dropped back to pass, and a big sack by Bud Dupree resulted in another three-and-out. When the Steelers’ offense had the football, they did one thing with it — add to their lead. This drive was no different. Roethlisberger continued to make several key third down completions, but the most controversial play happened on a 3rd and 8 when Roethlisberger scrambled for the first down, and while sliding Justin Reid hit him high with his shoulder. Reid was ejected from the game, and two plays later Roethlisberger hit Jesse James for his 4th touchdown pass of the night to make the score 45-14 at the end of the third quarter.After the latest Steelers’ score, Roosevelt Nix caused a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, which was recovered by Anthony Chickillo at the 9 yard line. Two plays later and Roethlisberger hit rookie Jaylen Samuels for a nifty catch-and-run for the touchdown. The Boswell point after made the score 52-14 in the early minutes of the fourth quarter.This would end Roethlisberger’s night, and the Steelers started to empty their benches with B.J. Finney going in for Maurkice Pouncey, Joshua Dobbs in for Roethlisberger and many defenders getting some rest in the waning minutes of the game.In garbage time, Newton and McCaffrey stayed in the game and were able to put together a scoring drive resulting in a McCaffrey touchdown run, his third touchdown of the game, making the score 52-21.The score would hold as the final.The win for the Steelers advances their record to 6-2-1, and now they have the ability to rest this weekend while the Cincinnati Bengals play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. On top of that, the team will have extra time to prepare for the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11 in Duval county.Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes surrounding the Steelers as they continue to press on throughout the regular season.The Pittsburgh Steelers’ ignorance has put them in their current situation To the casual observer, the Pittsburgh Steelers appear to be in total disarray through the first four weeks of the season, in reality, it is much worse than that. Despite possessing more talent on offense than virtually every team in the NFL, even without Le’Veon Bell, the Steelers cannot score consistently and the defensive slide into mediocrity shows no sign of abating any time soon. While it might seem obvious to expect many of these issues to be fixable, improvements will only occur when Pittsburgh changes what they are doing, and the message coming from players and coaches right now suggests a group in denial about the issues that plague them. Deluded about the quality they possessed on the roster at inside linebacker with Ryan Shazier sidelined, Tyler Matakevich was a more than capable replacement fans were told. To date, Matakevich has not seen a single snap on defense this season. The Steelers barely seemed to look at the free agent market beyond Jon Bostic and passed over every available prospect in the NFL draft in favor of a safety ranked by most as a Day 2 selection at best.It is telling that Matthew Thomas might be the best option on the roster to replace Vince Williams if he cannot play on Sunday http://www.steelersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jesse-james-jersey , but equally disturbing to acknowledged that the rookie will probably not see a snap on defense in Week 5. When Matakevich drops into coverage against a tight end or running back against the Atlanta Falcons, Steeler Nation should be forgiven for weeping. If rumors about attempts to trade Le’Veon Bell are actually true, then someone in the organization deserves to be fired for squandering the opportunity to move the player when they actually had some leverage. The only value Bell offers to any team by this point in the season is Pittsburgh and if the front office had not been so naive about Bell’s plans for 2018, they might have actually dealt with the problem sooner. The Steelers star running back gave more than enough warning signs that he would not be arriving at team facilitates in time for Week 1 and the organization ignored all of them. While Mike Tomlin and his staff can insist they do not pay attention to what their players post on social media, they may want to start doing so. They clearly cannot afford to ignore all the noise surrounding the team, however much they want to pretend it doesn't exist.Through the first four weeks of the season, Pittsburgh has failed in virtually every way imaginable, but those inside the building seem relatively unfazed. Citing previous poor starts as a sign they will turn it around, or blaming phantom penalties on offense for their woes, both players and coaches alike seem unwilling to accept the obvious truths. Swapping Todd Haley for Randy Fichtner was meant to reinvigorate the offense, so far it looks like they have taken a step back. The offense believed they could live without Bell and had all the confidence in the world in James Conner, but the former Pitt product has carried the ball an average of 11 times a game in the last three weeks.The team being behind in games has played a factor in that to be sure, but there have also been countless opportunities to run the ball the coaching staff have ignored.Ben Roethlisberger has been a streaky quarterback for much of the last two years, but all is forgiven when he takes a holiday during training camp and Antonio Brown goes AWOL as a consequence. Tomlin remains confident the duo will find their footing soon enough, simply because it has been there before. Rest time is clearly not an issue with Big Ben taking a day off from practice every Wednesday, but maybe working on their chemistry should be taking priority right now.Joey Porter has been given a host of top draft picks to turn into pass rushers, yet T.J. Watt currently looks as equally likely to wash out as all the names that came before him. Insanely doing the same thing and expecting different results isn't just a paraphrase of a famous Albert Einstein quote, it is the Steelers’ mantra as of late. The fans feel like this too watching your outside linebacker play too Joey.While someone has finally noticed that Artie Burns is no longer the promising rookie he once appeared to be, it is laughable to think that a player like Coty Sensabaugh is one of the names they would turn to. A player who couldn't get off the bench in 2017 is suddenly thrust into the mix in a bizarre rotation of three options at the position the coaching staff believes will produce a starter. Communication issues and problems with tackling have plagued this defense for years, but here we are watching the same struggle unfold each Sunday in 2018. Stephon Tuitt has vanished entirely this season and Cameron Heyward’s repeated calls for his teammates to step up continue to fall on deaf ears. There is little point relying on the veteran free agent signings of the past few years either, given most of them are perpetually injured. Joe Haden, Vance McDonald and Morgan Burnett may well be able to elevate the play of the team, but that would require them to stay healthy. The team openly discusses the disappointing play of the punter and then allows the winner of the camp battle to leave for another team and Jordan Berry continues to be a detriment. Ultimately, not all of these issues should negate the fact that Pittsburgh is capable of performing at a high enough level to win games, and a turn around of sorts should still be expected. The Steelers should be able to stack enough wins to paper over the cracks and convince the front office they have things headed in the right direction, just enough so we can all be back here again next year in the same predicament.

  9. When you think about it http://www.titansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brett-kern-jersey , the Titans might just be the NFL’s most surprising 2-1 team — at least when you look at the odds from each of their first three games.Texans and Jaguars, mainly due to a rash of injuries. The Titans pulled the on Sunday in Jacksonville, despite being close to ten point underdogs. A banged up Marcus Mariota found a way to get the job done, despite having limited feeling in his fingers on his throwing hand. Everything points to Mariota getting the go this weekend, even though he may not be 100 percent ready to go. Backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert suffered a concussion early on against the Jaguars, forcing Mariota into action. With his status in question Tajae Sharpe Jersey , Mike Vrabel doesn’t have much of a choice other than playing Mariota. And just judging from the results on Sunday, a banged up Mariota is still the team’s best option right now.His task this week is to find a way to beat the defending Super Bowl champs. The Philadelphia Eagles are coming to town this weekend, fresh off a win over the Colts. Indianapolis kept it competitive on Sunday, taking the Eagles down to the wire.Last weekend marked the return of Carson Wentz for the Eagles. It was his first action since tearing his ACL last season, which derailed an MVP caliber season. The return of Wentz was a big deal for the Eagles, but they’re far from healthy. Jay Ajayi, Darren Sproles and Alshon Jeffery have all missed time so far this year Authentic Ryan Succop Jersey , handicapping one of the NFL’s best offenses to this point. Even through all of that uncertainty, oddsmakers have placed the Eagles as a 3.5 point favorite for Sunday’s game against the Titans. The game total has been set at 41 points.We’ve spent a lot of time talking about the mismatches and players missing for the Titans so far this year. Turns out, it hasn’t mattered. The defense has played at a pretty high level over the past two weeks and Matt LaFleur’s offense has done just enough with limited firepower to come out on top. With Marcus Mariota and Jack Conklin showing signs of improvement, this offense is finally getting healthy again. With question marks on the Eagles’ side lingering too, I’d probably have to roll with the Titans getting 3.5 points at home.Titans release WR Rishard Matthews The Tennessee Titans have released wide receiver Rishard Matthews. General Manager Jon Robinson confirmed the move this morning during a press conference. Matthews had made a minimal impact so far in 2018 after missing all of training camp with an injury. Tajae Sharpe and Taywan Taylor seemed to pass Matthews on the depth chart, prompting Rishard to want out. Robinson said that Matthews asked for his release on Monday. The team explored a trade, ultimately deciding to move on today. As for how we got to this point Youth Quinton Spain Jersey , Robinson pointed towards Rishard’s diminished role in the offense.“I think it was his role, his use in the offense,” Robinson said of Matthews. “I think he spoke to that last week when you guys asked him. He reached out to me Monday and asked to be released or traded. We explored the trade market with several teams, but I would say that market never really manifested itself to get a deal there.He missed a lot of time with injuries in training camp. I thought he was coming back. He was working hard at practice and I was looking forward to him getting back into kind of what we had seen from him in the last couple years on the field. He just felt like that wasn’t happening.”The 28 year old Matthews posted his two best seasons as a pro with the Titans. He put up over 1,700 yards and 13 touchdowns in those two years, providing some stability to a receiver room that really needed it at the time. Now the Titans will be extremely reliant on the development of Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor, who were already playing ahead of Matthews to start the season. The biggest concern for the team right now is depth Kevin Byard Jersey , which is something that could be addressed soon. “I think that’s something we’re going through now, just going through and looking at all of the players that are available, that are going to fit our football team,” Robinson said. “We’re looking at all players.”
  10. Before the ninth Sunday of the 2018 NFL regular season kicks off http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/malcolm-jenkins-jersey-authentic , let’s have some fun by taking a look at the spreads for today’s games. (Click here for NFL Week 9 picks without regard to the spread.)My season record so far is 51-67-3 after going 10-4 last week. It only took half the season but my picks actually turned out well for once! The hot streak starts now.NFL Week 9 GamesDetroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings (-5.5): This line is giving the Vikings too much credit. Minnesota is closer to being an average team than an elite team. The Lions may not win outright but they’ll at least cover here. PICK: Lions +5.5Chicago Bears (-10) at Buffalo Bills: The Bills can’t score to save their lives. Can’t entirely rule out a weird trap game here with the matchup in Buffalo but the Bills are just so bad. PICK: Bears -10Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers (-6.5): The Bucs are more dangerous now that Ryan Fitzpatrick is back in the starting lineup. The Panthers are legitimately good but I’m still not fully sold on them to the point where I think they’ll make light work of the Bucs. PICK: Buccaneers +6.5Kansas City Chiefs (-7.5) at Cleveland Browns: Maybe the Browns will be better with Hue Jackson gone? Oh, wait, no, Gregg Williams is running the team now. Give me Andy Reid in this coaching matchup. PICK: Chiefs -7.5New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (-3): Brocktober is over. Brockvember doesn’t have the same ring to it. Therefore, take the Jets. #Analysis. PICK: Jets +3Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-2): The Steelers are hitting their stride and they’re not about to let themselves get swept by the Ravens this season. PICK: Steelers +2Atlanta Falcons at Washington Redskins (-2): Hope to be wrong about this one since the Eagles really need a Washington loss but this feels like one of those games that’ll be JUST out of reach for Atlanta. PICK: Washington -2Los Angeles Chargers (-1) at Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks are still a dangerous team. Seattle actually ranks sixth overall in DVOA. The Chargers are even higher at No. 3, but I always like Seattle at home. Especially if they’re getting point(s) there. PICK: Seahawks +1Houston Texans (-1) at Denver Broncos: The Texans have somehow won five in a row after starting out 0-3. They haven’t looked super impressive along the way. It’s not like the Broncos are good but Denver might have some upset potential in them. PICK: Broncos +1Los Angeles Rams (-2) at New Orleans Saints: The undefeated Rams have show signs of vulnerability. It feels like they’re due for a loss at some point. Why not today against a Saints team that might be better than them? I like Drew Brees getting points at home. PICK: Saints +2Green Bay Packers at New England Patriots (-5.5): Tom Brady is going to be super fired up to prove it should be him who should be considered the GOAT. PICK: Patriots -5.5Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys (-4): The Cowboys are less awful than the Titans. PICK: Cowboys -4 With Week 9 of the NFL season in the books, it’s time look at how various media outlets have ranked the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in their NFL power rankings. It’s always interesting to see how the Eagles stack up from an outside perspective. But first, let’s start by revisiting mine.Bleeding Green Nation11 - Philadelphia Eagles - Perfect bye week for the reigning Super Bowl champions. With Washington and Dallas losing, the Eagles are very much alive in the NFC East. Oh, and the Eagles also have a shiny new weapon in the form of Golden Tate. This team could be ready to make a strong second half push. (LW: 15)SB Nation10 - The Eagles didn’t play this week but had a great bye week due to losses from both Washington and Dallas. (LW: 10)ESPN9 - For Philly, the Super Bowl hangover was real. Lingering injuries (Alshon Jeffery, Tim Jernigan) from last season mixed with new ones (Rodney McLeod, Mike Wallace, Jay Ajayi) to deplete a championship roster that had little time to heal up because of the long run. The offense switched from Nick Foles to Carson Wentz in Week 3 http://www.eaglesfootballauthentics.com/jason-kelce-jersey-authentic , and it has yet to hit on all cylinders -- perhaps still adjusting to the loss of offensive coordinator Frank Reich and quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo. The Eagles clawed their way to a .500 record at the break, with hopes that the second half of the season will treat them more kindly. (LW: 9)NFL.com13 - The Eagles sure as heck improved themselves during their Week 9 bye. Love the Golden Tate trade for this team. While Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor (who has been mostly effective in the slot) add certain elements to the offense, neither bring the kind of running-back-in-a-wideout’s-body impact that Tate does. The former Lions receiver will be far more dangerous, or at least productive, on those bubble screens Jeffery occasionally gets. Tate is more explosive off his first step. Other notes: Tate averaged 93 receptions per year from 2014 to ‘17, and he was on pace for 101 with Detroit this season. While he has a higher drop rate than Agholor this year, in the past, he’s been as reliable as they come. From 2011 to 2013, when Tate was with the Seahawks, he boasted the lowest drop rate in the entire league (a scant 3.4 percent). (LW: 14)CBS Sports12 - They come off their bye with a big division game with the Cowboys. They have the look of a team ready to make a big second-half push. (LW: 16)Pro Football Talk9 - Philly’s best week arguably came while on a bye, given the implosion of both Washington and Dallas. (LW: 10)Yahoo! Sports9 - Considering the Eagles still have road games remaining against the Saints and Rams, they still don’t have a lot of room for error. But seeing the Redskins get blown out and lose some key players in the process (and then seeing the Cowboys fall on their face against the Titans) was a reminder that the NFC East is there for the taking. (LW: 9)Washington Post9 - The Redskins’ vulnerability means the NFC East is there for the taking for the Eagles, even with their early-season inconsistencies. But they need to play far better than they did in the first half of the season. They host the Cowboys on Sunday night in what becomes almost a must-win for them, given that their following game is at New Orleans and they still have a December road game against the Rams. (LW: 9)Bleacher Report9 - The Philadelphia Eagles got back on track (and back to .500) with a Week 8 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. But the team wasn’t content to just rest during its off week. Of all the deals made by NFL teams at the trade deadline Womens Nick Foles Jersey , Philly’s acquisition of Golden Tate from the Detroit Lions might have the biggest impact on the playoff chase in the NFC. Tate is a proven receiver with over 1,000 yards each of the last two years who is on pace to hit that benchmark a third consecutive season. He should be a fine complement to Alshon Jeffery and provide Carson Wentz with a chain-mover underneath. It was a move that demonstrates the Eagles believe they are still more than capable of making a deep playoff run and defending their Super Bowl championship. Given where our panel ranks the Eagles despite four losses, it appears it agrees. (LW: 11)Pro Football Weekly9 - Watching Washington, Dallas flop makes division run easier (LW: 9)Sporting News11 - The Eagles will be good in plenty of areas coming out of their bye, starting with their offense. The defense remains the big concern going forward in an offensively loaded NFC. (LW: 11)USA Today9 - Do bye weeks get better? Injury bug bit down hard on NFC East-leading Washington. Meanwhile, Philly picked up Golden Tate. Champs are back. (LW: 10)Reddit12 - Bye, bye. (LW: 13)Mile High Report13 - Lets hope they used their bye week to tweak some things and find their winning ways. (LW: 12)Sports Illustrated9 - The Eagles got a nice present with Washington’s loss during their bye week. (And Dallas’s, Green Bay’s and Seattle’s losses, to be honest.) But the division remains the main focus for now. Five of their final eight games come against NFC East opponents, starting with Dallas traveling to Philly on a short week. (LW: 10)...AnalysisThe rankings range from as high as 9 to as low as 13. The most common ranking is 9. The average ranking is 10.3, which is up slightly from last week’s average of 10.9.The Eagles, as we know, had a very good bye week. It feels like there’s a positive momentum going on with this team. It’s time for them to prove that feeling is real by beating the Cowboys on Sunday night. A big win will cement Philadelphia’s status in the top 10.
  11. Thursday can’t come fast enough for Houston fans http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/kareem-jackson-jersey , but having it come a little slower for the players would be helpful. Well, none other than Brock Osweiler and the 27th ranked Miami Dolphins offense are coming to town to face Jadeveon Clowney, J.J. Watt and the hungry Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu. Arguably the most immobile quarterback in recent memory, Osweiler’s best impersonation of the statue of Stevie Ray Vaughn in downtown Austin will surely allow the ninth ranked Texans defense to notch some even better stats than they did against the Bortling Jaguars (yes, “Bortling” is a verb, mostly used to illustrate poor quarterback skills). While it would be easy to just say the five keys for success this week are J.J. Watt sacking Osweiler and Jadeveon Clowney sacking Osweiler, Whitney Mercilus strip-sacking Osweiler, Kareem Jackson intercepting Osweiler, and DeAndre Hopkins thanking Osweiler for leaving so Deshaun Watson could arrive, let’s dig in a little further. 1.The Miami Dolphins currently have the 27th ranked defense in the NFL.If Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue can get their move on, Deshaun Watson and the ever-so-slowly gelling Texans offensive line should have a pretty easy time against Miami, which ranks 29th against the rush, giving up an average of 136.7 yards per game on the ground. While Houston is only averaging 113.7 yards rushing per game, they should fare much better against the porous Miami defense, especially after tuning up against the far stronger Jacksonville defense last weekend. 2.Expect Brock Osweiler to pad his stats – turnover stats, to be preciseWith Kareem Jackson Womens Julien Davenport Jersey , Johnathan Joseph, and Tyrann Mathieu combining for five picks so far this year, going up against a quarterback who has proven he can not only throw interceptions with the best of them but has also actually mastered the art of throwing fumbles should make a highlight reel all by iitself. While Osweiler has only two interceptions and hasn’t fumbled yet in 2018, expect that to change this week. Bring on the GIFs! 3.Tyler Ervin is due to break one for a touchdown.Ervin has slowly, quietly, grown into the a solid return man and semi-capable slot receiver. Going against a Miami Dolphins special teams unit that ranks dead last in yards given up on kickoff returns, expect this week to be the one where Ervin finally puts some points on the board for the good guys. While Miami’s punt return coverage is a little more solid, Brock Osweiler’s turnovers will keep the punter off the field for the most part. 4.J.J. Watt will get held, illegal-hands-to-the-face’d, tripped and held some more.We get it. This is an offensively slanted league where penalties against the defense are often overlooked.If the NFL let J.J. Watt play fairly, he’d shatter every record there is for a defensive lineman. That doesn’t mean we have to like it. If the referees called every infraction against Watt in any given game, they might develop repetitive motion disorder from throwing so many flags.While all that cheating is allowed to continue, Watt still has seven sacks and four forced fumbles coming into this week’s contest. Expect that number to rise in spite of the less than sportsmanlike play he’ll have to fight off. 5.The Houston Texans trade for Patrick Peterson.This one is more of a pipe dream than a prediction. In fact, it probably won’t happen. But could you imagine the instant upgrade the Texans’ defense would receive with Patrick Peterson in the Romeo Crennel mix with Tyrann Mathieu, Justin Reid, Andre Hal, Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph? Coverage sacks would increase http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/bruce-ellington-jersey , interceptions would increase, and the All Field Goal Offense would have even more opportunities to run the score up three points at a time. There you have it, five things to watch for (well, ten if you count the five guys who are going to make Osweiler wish he was still warming the bench for Peyton Manning). Give us your list in the comments section. Titans starting outside linebacker Derrick Morgan will play tonight.He was a late addition to the injury report with an illness, but he is active. The Titans’ inactives are safety Dane Cruikshank (knee), running back David Fluellen (knee), receiver Taywan Taylor (foot), running back Dalyn Dawkins, offensive guard Aaron Stinnie, offensive tackle Tyler Marz and defensive end Matt Dickerson.Tennessee has only two running backs active tonight.Houston added receiver Sammie Coates Jr. to the injury report Saturday with an illness, but he is active.The Texans’ inactives are Duke Ejiofor (shoulder), cornerback Natrell Jamerson, receiver Vyncint Smith, cornerback Deante Burton, inside linebacker Josh Keyes, defensive end Carlos Watkins and defensive end Joel Heath.Starting right guard Zach Fulton (shoulder) and starting left guard Senio Kelemete (ankle) will play. The Texans listed them as questionable after they were limited in Saturday’s practice.
  12. Antonio Brown has led the Steelers in receptions for the last six seasons and receiving yards for the last five seasons Womens Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey , but that’s on pace to change this year.Smith-Schuster says there’s “no consideration” given to the numbers because the top goal is team success and because Brown’s presence is a major reason why his numbers are so good in the first place.“Obviously, h been here for [nine] years?Smith-Schuster said Youth Stephon Tuitt Jersey , via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “He’s getting double teamed, triple teamed; it’s hard, you know? But he still makes his plays and he still has the explosive plays that he’s making. And for me to be a young guy, me and [running back James Conner] and some of the other guys are being able to eat off his plate because of what he’s done in the past.”Smith-Schuster may be eating off of Brown’s plate Youth Ramon Foster Jersey , but Brown’s hardly starving. He’s tied for the league lead in receiving touchdowns with 11 and is on pace for season totals largely in line with his usual production even as he’s made room for Smith-Schuster’s rise this season. The Pittsburgh Steelers were far from impressive on opening day against the Cleveland Browns, but the two teams appear to have gone in opposite directions since Week 1. While the Browns are already in midseason form, losing three of their last four games, the Steelers have only lost once in their last four outings.Cleveland continues to find new and innovative ways to lose each Sunday and it was a 59-yard field by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that doomed the Browns to their second straight defeat in their fourth overtime contest of the season. Heading into a rematch with the well-rested Steelers Womens Antonio Brown Jersey , the oddsmakers seem to believe the woes will continue for Cleveland in Week 8 after they installed Pittsburgh as 7-point favorites. The initial totals position has been set at 50.5-points.Browns fans would need to flash back to 2014 to remember the last time their team emerged victorious over the Steelers, going 1-10-1 in their last 12 encounters. However, the last time Cleveland won in Pittsburgh was all the way back in 2004 and they are 0-14 in The Steel City since then. Given that the last game between these two teams ended in a very disappointing tie, it can only hoped that the Steelers will take their divisional rival a little more seriously this time around. With a habit of playing down to the Browns’ level as of late Womens JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , games against Cleveland have been much closer than they should have been and Steelers Nation will be looking for Pittsburgh to make a statement on Sunday with a convincing win. The total has gone under in eight of the Steelers' last 11 games against the Browns and Pittsburgh is 5-5-1 against the spread in those games.
  13. Let’s do this.Titans over the BillsUh Authentic Kamalei Correa Jersey , I mean Bills over Titans.Bengals over the DolphinsBoth of these teams played polar opposites last week, and while I expect Miami to play a lot better this week, I think Cincinnati’a home field advantage gives them the edge.Ravens over the BrownsI expect Baker Mayfield to throw a couple of interceptions against a tough Ravens defense. It happens for rookies.Packers over the Lions (upset)Even with a 50% Aaron Rodgers, I don’t see Green Bay losing this one to Detroit, who I had winning before today.Chiefs over the JaguarsThe #1 offense against the #1 defense. Since the Chiefs are at home I give them the edge.Broncos over the Jets (upset)ESPN currently has the Jets at -1.0, so yes this is technically an upset pick. Then again the change in altitude might play against the Broncos.Steelers over the FalconsAtlanta’s defense is without Grady Jarrett, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones and Ricardo Allen. NO excuse for the Steelers if they lose this one.Panthers over the GiantsNorv Turner has been surprisingly good as the Panthers’ offensive coordinator Youth Kenny Vaccaro Jersey , and against a weak Giants defense at home I expect that to continue.Chargers over the RaidersDespite playing on the road at home, the Chargers should take this one.Eagles over the VikingsPhiladelphia’s offensive line has sucked this season, but I see the defense and Wentz doing just enough to get by a Vikings team whose offensive and secondary are also brutal.Cardinals over the 49ers (upset)Josh Rosen was excellent last week, so I expect his receivers to actually catch the ball this time and secure Arizona’s first win of the season.Rams over the Seahawks-7.5 spread.Texans over the CowboysDallas’ offense showed life against the Lions last week, but let’s see if that’ll continue against J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney on Sunday night.Saints over the RedskinsI’m looking forward to seeing the Saints offensive line facing off against the Redskins’ defensive line, as well as Drew Brees potentially breaking more records. I’ll be honest, I was probably going to hold this contest anyways, but I ended up running out of time to finish my AFC Preview—I know, I know ... the lack of coverage on the Bengals http://www.titansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dennis-kelly-jersey , Dolphins, and Bills was a huge disappointment to all—and I wanted to find another way to wrap it up.So, I decided to get everyone here (at least those who care to participate) involved.I’m “sponsoring” the first-ever MCM AFC Pick ‘Em.The rules are simple:In a single post (no amendments after the fact), give your record prediction for each AFC team. Also, clearly denote your 6 AFC playoff teams either with accompanying asterisks or by making the team names bold or italicized.You’ll receive 1 point for every team’s record you are able to successfully predict within one game of their final, actual record.As an example, if you pick the Titans to win 11 games, you’ll get 1 point if they finish anywhere between 10-6 and 12-4.The relative order in which you list teams doesn’t matter, i.e. how you order teams you predict will have the same record.You’ll also receive 1 point for correctly predicting that a team will make the playoffs.This second opportunity to score is not tied to the first—if you get a playoff team right Jayon Brown Jersey , but miss on their record, you’ll still get the secondary point.Ideally, you would earn 2 points per playoff team by hitting on both their record and post-season berth.That’s all there is to it.Theoretically, an entrant could earn a max of 22 points if they were right on every team, but we all know Nostradamus isn’t a member of the site.That brings me to one qualifier: you must have been a member of MCM (and a Titans fan) prior to this contest being posted.I don’t want the prize to go to someone who signs up just to “place a bet”, and I especially don’t want it go to a troll from the SB Nation Netherrealms.If you’re one of those “longtime reader, first-time commenter” folks, feel free to hop in and introduce yourself to the gang.If I don’t recognize your username, I’ll simply do a quick vetting if you win to make sure you meet the criteria.In the result of any tie(s) Authentic Josh Kline Jersey , those left standing will settle things by predicting the outcome of the AFC Playoffs, but we’ll cross that bridge if and when we get there.Prize, you say?I’m offering up a Riddell Mini Helmet—in the Titans’ new design of course—to the Grand Champion.If I somehow pull out the win, well ... then everybody else who participates owes me one instead.I’m not sure I have a need for that many small helmets, but fair is fair.The deadline for entries is this Sunday, September 9th, by 11:59 AM CST—before Titans @ Dolphins kicks off.Without further ado, here is my entry:1. Patriots - 11-52. Steelers - 10-63. Chargers - 9-74. Texans - 9-75. Titans - 9-76. Jaguars - 8-87. Chiefs - 8-88. Broncos - 8-89. Bengals - 7-910. Ravens - 7-911. Dolphins - 7-912. Browns - 6-1013. Colts - 6-1014. Raiders - 4-1215. Jets - 4-1216. Bills - 3-13Good luck to everyone!

Bears vs. Seahawks: How to watch Monday Night Football Cheap Mike Wallace Jersey , game info, live streaming, odds, more Week 2 of the 2018 NFL regular season ends tonight with a game between the Seattle Seahawks (0-1) and Chicago Bears (0-1).

He was limited in practice all week before being listed questionable on Philadelphia’s final injury report. The Eagles are down to just Fletcher Cox, Treyvon Hester, and Bruce Hector as healthy http://www.eaglescheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-nick-foles-jersey , full-time defensive tackles. Very thin there. Pryor is the only healthy scratch from the inactives group. He’s now the only player on the 53-man roster who hasn’t been active for a single game this season. Due to all the injuries, Jordan Mailata is active for the first time in his NFL career. That’s cool! He’s very unlikely to play, of course, with Halapoulivaati Vaitai and Isaac Seumalo ahead of him on the depth chart at tackle.

  15. At this point Houston Texans Womens Hoodie , even though the Houston Texans are 2-3 and mind-bogglingly only one game out of first place in the AFC South, it’s obvious this season isn’t going to be “the one” we’ve all been waiting for all these years. But as Houston football fans have learned to do over the past 50+ seasons, we can look for things to hang our collective hat on to keep the spark of faith alive. The Houston Texans beat the Dallas Cowboys.For all the chatter Dallas Cowboys fans love to toss out when they’re feeling chippy, it sure was awfully quiet on Monday morning. Now, Bill O’Brien didn’t mastermind a solid victory by any stretch of the imagination. Still, a win is a win, right? Listening to the roar of Cowboys fans in NRG Stadium turn to crickets might be one of the best sounds in all of sports. The real silver lining to Sunday Night’s game ran far deeper than just putting the state rival, the so-called “America’s Team,” firmly in the “L” column. Watching a team with a solid running game, great offensive line, and higher ranked defense lose simply because of terrible play-calling by a coaching staff that somehow actually makes Houston’s offensive staff look halfway decent felt like handing off a slice of pain to a fan base that many feel deserves to get what they give when it comes to talking smack. The Houston Texans defeated the Colts in Indianapolis.While the Texans, Browns, and Colts might be in a to-the-death fight for the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the ability to go into Lucas Oil Stadium and snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat after the Colts tried to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was pretty sweet. Andrew Luck might still have the “elite quarterback” label slapped on him, but the Houston defense can clearly say “not on our watch” when that comes up. If the Texans are only going to win two games this year, having taken out Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys is a good one to get. Sending Andrew Luck and the hapless Colts off to the glue factory is almost better. After that, what do we have to look forward to this season? Well, let’s make a list:DeAndre Hopkins’ best plays are yet to come.Each and every week, Nuk just pads his highlight reel more and more. While it’s easy to look back over the history of the Houston Texans and say Andre Johnson is the greatest receiver the team has ever had Womens Customized Houston Texans Jerseys , it’s not so easy to say Hopkins won’t be looking at Andre in the rear view mirror when his career finally comes to an end. Andre played in 193 games, caught 1,062 passes for 14185 yards at a 13.4 yard per catch average with 70 trips to the end zone. Oh, and ‘Dre had one prize fight where he defeated Cortland Finnegan to become the undisputed heavyweight AFC South champion. Nuk has played in 84 games, caught 452 passes for 6,459 yards at a 14.3 yard per catch average with 38 trips to the end zone. To date, he hasn’t beat down any cornerbacks, but big brother Andre sent a message to any would-be bullies not to mess with Texas. At the rate he’s going, if Hopkins has a similar final catch number, he’ll amass 15,186 yards and 89 touchdowns. Something tells me those numbers are pedestrian to what Nuk will actually end up with, especially if Deshaun Watson can remain healthy. Oh, and Hopkins currently leads the NFL in receiving yards.J.J. Watt wins Defensive Player of the Year for an unprecedented fourth time.With Watt and Jadeveon Clowney both healthy, offensive line coaches are learning it’s impossible to stop both of them.If you crack the door open for either of them, they’re busting through and bringing the party to you. Watt and little brother T.J. Watt currently hold the league lead for sacks (along with Geno Atkins) at 6. J.J. and Khalil Mack currently hold the lead for most forced fumbles. But anyone who has been paying attention can easily see J.J. Watt is just getting started. In previous DPOY years, Watt triumphed with a combination of raw talent, instinct, and determination. The new and improved J.J. Watt has the x-factor of “wily old veteran” mixed in. Combine that with the time his body has had to rest over the last two seasons, and everyone should realize this dude is a bulldozer looking for buildings to level. If I was the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line coach, I might not sleep at all over the next five days.Bill O’Brien aims to make history.At the rate of attempts so far this season Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , it seems clear that Bill O’Brien’s master plan is to turn Houston kicker Ka’imi Fairbairn into the first kicker to be named NFL MVP. With the revolutionary All Field Goal Offense, a master stroke of genius to get World Cup Soccer fans to love the NFL, O’Brien is seeking to put his own stamp on NFL history by decreasing scoring while increasing red zone failures and game-saving field goals. While guys like Tom Brady, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning have the most come from behind game-winning drives of any quarterbacks, Fairbairn might find himself enshrined in Canton right alongside them when O’Brien’s plan is embraced by the Football Writers of America. Ka’imi “Captain Comeback Kicker” Fairbairn will be forever immortalized in the annals of NFL history.We will have Bill O’Brien to thank for tha of an extra bye week, so go back this weekend try to look through everything, see kind of where a lot the problems are. Kind of look at it as a whole, not just one game, and get an answer.”When Gase gets his answer, there could be news. Last week, the answer in Arizona came by the next morning.
