The Patriots did their thing: New England’s reign over the AFC continued Saturday night in Foxborough, Mass., in the form of a 35-14 blowout win over the Tennessee Titans. The Baseball Jerseys Wholesale victory sends the Pats to their seventh consecutive conference championship game, and 12th in 17 years.
During a radio interview the day after Christmas, the Cowboys owner said that he would be keeping Garrett for the 2018 season. “I certainly know a lot about Jason Garrett. Because of that, I can quickly and candidly say his job is not an issue here, at all,” Jones said on Tuesday. “It’s not in the best interest of the Cowboys to be considering a coaching change.”
Considering everything that Garrett had to deal with this year — from the injuries to the Ezekiel Elliott situation — it’s no surprise that Garrett is sticking around, especially when you consider that the Cowboys are coming off a 13-3 season in 2016.
The pairing of Adrian Peterson and the Saints is not off to a promising start, but no one should have expected too much, anyway. The defense could not stop Sam Bradford and the Vikings on Monday night. How do you think it will fare against Tom Brady and the irked Patriots on Sunday?
Andrew Luck is to be sidelined for at least another game, and there’s little reason to believe the Colts can win without him. Scott Tolzien clearly is not the answer at QB. Perhaps the Best Place For Cheap Jerseys Colts should turn to Jacoby Brissett.
Martellus Bennett swaps Aaron Rodgers for Tom Brady — and wins: After quarterback Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery for a broken collarbone, the tight end who signed with Green Bay as a free agent, suddenly announced on social media that he was going to retire after the season. Then, in the middle of the week, Bennett was suddenly released for “failure to disclose” a shoulder injury. No sooner was he waived, though, than the New England Patriots were able to pick him up and he was practicing with the team he spent last season with.
Rivera’s first big move after signing a two-year contract extension through 2020 was dismissing offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey. Turner will replace Cheap Basketball Jerseys Shula. The Panthers replaced Wilks with Washington, who was promoted from defensive line coach.
The Jaguars certainly need their running backs to contribute on Sunday, but they can’t go into this game with an approach that tries to hide Bortles with their ground assault. It sounds crazy, but the Jaguars need to throw the ball early and often. They need to let Bortles drop back to pass on first down.
It’s a dicier issue for Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has said he believes that “everyone should stand for the national anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us.” However, he has also stressed that players have the right to free speech. Among owners, there appears to be no unanimity of opinion.
The Vikings spent their bye week getting healthy, or so you would think. Their fans might point out that Minnesota disposed of the Saints — who stand between the Vikings and a place in the NFC title game — rather easily earlier this season. Yep. The defense bottled up then-New Orleans RB Adrian Peterson in his revenge (attempt) game, Sam Bradford threw for more than 300 Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys yards with no picks and Dalvin Cook looked like a stud in his NFL debut. Exactly none of those players will be participating in this week’s game.
This will be a tough matchup for the Vikings, particularly when it comes to Saints RB Alvin Kamara. That said, this group is more talented than the Panthers and should be able to hold up in coverage better than Carolina, even when dedicating Andrew Sendejo to the box to stop the Kamara/Ingram sandwich.
The Chargers made things very interesting with their fourth-quarter comeback Monday night in Denver but failed to force OT when their rookie kicker, Younghoe Koo, had Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys a tying FG attempt blocked with one second left (after a successful kick didn’t count because of a Broncos timeout just before the snap). It was a determined effort in Coach Anthony Lynn’s first game but the Chargers were undone by their poor play in the first three quarters.
Wanted: Real players. New GM John Dorsey isn’t exactly sparing the feelings of the previous regime, is he? It will be interesting to see if the Browns and Coach Hue Jackson remain so committed to one another beyond this season, given that Jackson now could have a potential landing spot in Cincinnati.
Cam Newton’s first real game back from shoulder surgery was pretty good. But the Panthers will probably need even better from Newton down the line if they’re going to return to contender status.
The formula is clear for the Jaguars: Hand the football to rookie RB Leonard Fournette as often as possible, limit the chances for mistakes by QB Blake Bortles, and play defense. The pass rush won’t always be as productive as the 10-sack outing in the impressive opening victory over the Texans. But maybe, just maybe, the Jaguars can be better than anyone expected.
“He’s amazing,” Ertz said of Foles. “Obviously, people have been doubting us since the moment Carson got hurt. But the thing about this locker room is, all 53 guys kept believing. And today, Nick was ballin’, just killing it. I’m not surprised by this result. I said from the get-go this game didn’t have to be close.”
Additionally, it’s possible Gruden looked far into the future and realized his MNF Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys gig might not always be there. Maybe this was the perfect spot to get back into coaching, with a team stocked with young talent (Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and Khalil Mack are one of the best trio of building blocks in the NFL). He’s going to get paid huge both short- and long-term, and Raiders fans will be amped to see him walk through that door.
