Whatever happens the rest of the season, it sure appears that Sean McVay can coach.

And it’s not Wade Phillips’s defense that’s doing the heavy lifting, it’s McVay’s offense leading the way.

Before his College Football Playoff performance against Clemson and Georgia, Payne Best Cheap Jerseys From China was a first-round pick. But his play in those two huge games will not go unnoticed. He’d fit perfectly in the Redskins defense and could help keep Preston Smith and Ryan Kerrigan productive.

The Packers don’t have an immediate need at cornerback, but they’ve always valued the position, and Ward is a top-10 talent in this draft class. He can help keep the position a strength and allow the Packers to invest in offensive and defensive line throughout the rest of the draft and free agency.

Arizona is a prime contender to trade up for Josh Rosen (or Baker Mayfield), but if the Cardinals stay put, they’ll likely look to bolster their receiving corps or keep their defense strong. Landry had a down 2017 season but is still a first-round talent.

The Ravens might move on from recent first-round receiver Breshad Perriman this year, and it’s clear they need help at the position. Ridley is a great fit for their offense, and Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome is known for coveting Alabama players in the draft.

Edmonds repeatedly shows an ability to make short and wide elusive maneuvers, keeping a low center of gravity and firing upfield with vision and top-end speed. He has flashed versatility as a third-down running back, and his hip fluidity and body control should translate well to a role as a pass-catcher in the NFL, an area in which he’ll likely have immediate NFL value.

A standout defender for UConn the last three seasons, “Foley” Fatukasi has been tremendously disruptive this season, being used as a nose, three-, and five-technique along the defensive line. For a 300-plus-pound defender, he works in space and on the edge with great control and Buy Cheap Jerseys upfield leverage. He offers outstanding lower-half strength and explosiveness off the snap to win with leverage and put himself in position to punish as a pass rusher.

Despite plenty of college experience, his best football may be ahead of him in the NFL.

Maybe it’s time to accept that this is simply a mediocre team that isn’t likely to develop into anything more formidable.

A third straight non-playoff season would raise more questions among outsiders about Coach John Harbaugh and QB Joe Flacco, but the Ravens are patient and seem fully committed to both.

The Cowboys return from their bye for a busy week in which RB Ezekiel Elliott’s immediate playing status must be clarified and players must find out whether owner Jerry Jones’s stand-or-else mandate for the national anthem will mesh with what the league figures out at the owners’ meetings Tuesday and Wednesday. Oh yeah, there also is a football game to be played Sunday at San Francisco.

Many people see that Thursday’s game should be the tipping point for the NFL to reconsider the games, but then owners also have to consider dollar signs, receiving $1.86 billion from NBC, CBS, Twitter and Amazon over the two-year Thursday night TV and streaming package that ends after this season.

The NFL on Monday defended its replay reversal of Austin Seferian-Jenkins’s TD-turned-fumble, but its case remains unconvincing. It was baffling even to former NFL officiating czars Mike Pereira and Dean Blandino. That’s not saying the Jets would have beaten the Patriots if the Cheap Football Practice Jerseys TD call Cheap Epl Jerseys had stood, as it probably should have. But they would have had a chance.

While Tom Brady is the league’s biggest star and the league’s greatest-ever QB, Aaron Rodgers is probably the NFL’s most indispensable player. And now the Packers have lost him, quite possibly for the season. They don’t have a backup like Jimmy Garoppolo to step in, as the Patriots would have minus Brady. Coach Mike McCarthy is pledging to go with Brett Hundley as the starter, squelching talk that Colin Kaepernick or Tony Romo could get a call. But it’s difficult to imagine the Packers being a factor in the NFC’s Super Bowl chase with the untested Hundley at QB.

The Vikings still need to win to wrap up the No. 2 seed, punching their ticket to a home game in the divisional playoffs.

The Ravens know regardless of what else happens, a win over the Bengals will get them back into the playoffs, a familiar feeling in the Joe Flacco-John Harbaugh era. They will rebound from the off-but-victorious home game against the Colts and build on their 20-0 win in Cincinnati back in Week 1. Baltimore marches on as a very dangerous wild card because of its defense.

They won’t hold back in routing another division foe, as the Bears have a shaky offense that doesn’t match up well against the hosts’ defense. This is a hard end-of-rookie-season assignment for Mitchell Trubisky.

The Steelers won’t be sympathetic about helping the Browns get their first win, as the No. 1 AFC seed is still within reach. Pittsburgh won by only a field goal in Cleveland back in Week 1, but the AFC North rivals have gone in completely different directions before this finale. Expect a bunch of Le’Veon Bell, too much for the Browns.

Put simply, Markelle Fultz is still the best Point Guard prospect since Kyrie Irving. Fultz has a natural ability to change speeds, which doesn’t just make him dangerous in transition, it helps him control the pace of the game. He’s a playmaker with instinctual passing vision. He’s got a hard to beat first step, an impossible to guard spin-move, and can use hesitation to get where he wants, or to get the hesi pull-up jimbo he wants. Traditionally he’s been a good spot-up shooter, good off the dribble, and a good finisher at the rim thanks to his athleticism and body control. If he improves his free-throw shooting, his ability to get to the basket should translate into an ability to get to the line. Oh and he’s got a 6’10” wingspan. Which means he has the potential to be both an above average rebounder at his position and a versatile defender who can switch across two to three positions.

If all that sounds like a bunch of subjective, eye-test, opinion-based, Philly-biased, aggrandizing fluffery to you, let’s dig back into some of his college numbers and highlights, since he’s only got four injury-plagued games to draw from in the pros. Things like playmaking, passing vision, creativity, footwork and handle generally show up a little more readily in the footage than they do the analytics. So let’s start there. Fultz has a lot of ways to get his own shot and a lot of ways to get to the rim and a lot of ways to finish when he’s there. In other words, he’s Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Supply got a lot of ways to score. Here are a few examples…

The Seahawks were done against the Rams before that game even started.

Russell Wilson is still running around and doing his thing, but the lack of rushing and line support is getting to him. Meanwhile, Seattle’s injury-ravaged defense is no longer holding things together. The Cowboys will control the clock with Ezekiel Elliott while their defense continues to be sparked by Sean Lee and the young secondary. Wilson keeps it close, but Dak Prescott eventually puts it away.

The Patriots haven’t been carried by Tom Brady in recent weeks. The running game and receiving corps have battled through some injury hits, and the defense has scraped to keep things in reach of victory. New England is more gritty than pretty now, which is perfect for this time of year. Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy are hot, but they’ll be cooled off in this rematch.

The Giants found some extra energy against the Eagles, and it will carry over into a good matchup on the road. Drew Stanton is returning for Arizona as starting QB with limited help, while Eli Manning is playing as well as he can to stay in New York’s plans for 2018.

Without Tatum’s immediate contributions, Boston’s offense would struggle more than it has. It’s reasonable and appropriate to expect that some regression still may be coming — the NBA season is much longer than the 29 games Tatum suited up for at Duke.

They currently have the best record in the Eastern Conference while starting a 19-year-old and a 21-year-old, while missing their prized 27-year-old free agency addition, and with a gaggle of younger players on the bench with varying amounts of potential. But the Celtics also will receive the Los Angeles Lakers’ pick this season if it falls between the second and fifth selection. Currently, the Lakers have the second-worst record in the league.

Let’s imagine that the Celtics do get that pick — they just need Los Angeles to not win the lottery, or else it goes to Philadelphia — and can pick between three highly prized centers, Mo Bamba, DeAndre Ayton, and Marvin Bagley. Or they could potentially draft Luka Doncic, the Slovenian wunderkind who would give the Celtics an embarrassment of riches on the wings. This MLB Jerseys Cheap is essentially what the basketball pioneers at Free Darko once imagined: the Wholesale NFL Jerseys Free Shipping game played with five do-everything wings. While a center might be the more traditional pick, especially with the oldest core player being Horford, Doncic would represent the ultimate basketball experiment.

Johnny Manziel could soon revive his professional football career in Canada.

The CFL on Thursday announced commissioner Randy Ambrosie will approve a contract for the free agent quarterback to play in 2018 if one can be negotiated with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who hold Manziel’s rights.

Since last summer, the Canadian Football League has been engaged in a Wholesale NHL Jerseys thorough process to determine the eligibility of Johnny Manziel. This process has been conducted with the cooperation of Mr. Manziel and independent of the team which currently holds his CFL rights, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

It has included an ongoing assessment by an independent expert on the issue of violence against women, a review by legal counsel, and an in-person interview of Mr. Manziel conducted by the Commissioner. As well, Mr. Manziel has been required to meet a number of conditions set by the league.

As a result of this process, the Commissioner has now informed Mr. Manziel and the Tiger-Cats he is prepared to approve a contract for Mr. Manziel should one be negotiated.

A few hours later, thanks to Alabama’s 24-6 bludgeoning of Clemson, it had become a lot more than just a chant. It was a full-blown SEC celebration that will culminate in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game presented by AT&T (8 p.m. ET Jan. 8 on ESPN and ESPN App) with an all-SEC final in the city where the SEC plays its conference championship game every year (Atlanta).

They say the SEC doesn’t dominate any more, but I beg to differ, Alabama center Bradley Bozeman said.

Even SEC executive associate commissioner Mark Womack couldn’t resist NFL Jerseys Authentic as he strolled across the field amid the Alabama confetti falling from the top of the Superdome roof.

I’m trying to figure out how a one-team league has both of the teams playing for the national championship, Womack chortled.

Yep, the collective groan heard around the rest of the college football world late Monday was reminiscent of the one heard at the end of the 2011 season, when Alabama and LSU met in a rematch to decide the BCS National Championship. That game was also in the Big Easy, and it helped pave the way to the College Football Playoff.

Murray, Jokic lead Nuggets to 124-111 win over Nets

After getting a pep talk from his coach, Jamal Murray came through with a big game for the Denver Nuggets.

Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan said consistently Tuesday they view Garoppolo as a long-term answer at the quarterback position. And some wonder if that were the case, why not just wait until he’s a free agent this offseason to nab him and keep the second-round pick that the Niners value greatly? But San Francisco looks like it didn’t want to get in a bidding war with other QB-needy teams for Garoppolo this offseason and risk the chance of losing him.

The Bucks dominated on both ends of the floor.

“Their defense is pretty insane,” Schroder said. “After the pick-and-roll, you try and pass it to the roller. It’s tough to get it to him.”

Bucks: Kidd said C-F Greg Monroe is expected to miss at least two weeks with a left calf strain. Monroe was injured in Friday’s 96-89 home loss to Boston. Kidd liked how Vaughn handled the extra minutes in Monroe’s spot, finishing with 12 points and three rebounds in 21 minutes. Vaughn Cheap Long Sleeve Soccer Jerseys sat on the bench the previous three games. “It just shows you how mature he has been in Cheap Lacrosse Jerseys his work ethic,” Kidd said. “He’s ready to go. He answered the call today.”

Reed has dealt with some injuries so far in 2017

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion) was a full participant at practice again on Thursday. This bodes well for Kuechly, who is on pace to play against the Cheap Kids NFL Jerseys Bucs after missing a week. No word on whether he has passed concussion protocol just yet.

The Pro Bowl tight end entered the night with zero touchdowns, but hauled in a couple from Cousins against the Eagles.

They keep the stadium feel with 3 full bars and food is going up to a window (there are 3 or 4) in the kitchen area and ordering food concession style…Good environment for watching the game…It’s super crowded before the game but clears out during when everyone goes inside.”

Wilson Chandler added 18 points for the Nuggets, who have won two straight games.

Spencer Dinwiddie tied a career-high with 22 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 18 points and Joe Harris tied his season-high with 16 points for the Nets.

The Nuggets went on a 22-4 run to begin the third quarter as Brooklyn missed 10 of its first 11 shots. Chandler carried Denver in the third with 14 points as the Nuggets took a 100-84 lead into the fourth quarter and never looked back.

“I thought that third quarter was phenomenal,” Malone said. “That was by Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale far our best quarter of basketball on both ends of the floor. We outscored them 40-21 and to hold them to only 40 percent for the game was terrific.”

Hudon helps Canadiens pound Senators 8-3

The Montreal Canadiens are starting to believe in themselves after a rough start to the season.

Charles Hudon scored his first two career goals and had an assist, helping the Canadiens roll to an 8-3 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.

“Offensively we’ve been a team that hasn’t scored much, but five the last game and eight tonight so I can see the confidence coming back with the players,” coach Claude Julien said.

Hossa has been ruled out for the season because of severe side effects from medication to treat a progressive skin disorder. It’s unclear if he will be able to play again.

The Blackhawks sent forward Kyle Baun to the Canadiens for the 27-year-old Martinsen, who will report to Rockford. He played in 64 NHL games last season with Montreal and Colorado, finishing with three goals and four assists.

Failla ruled on Tuesday that the NFLPA had “failed to demonstrate a substantial question warranting the extraordinary remedy of injunctive relief or a balance of hardships that decidedly weighs in its favor.” She denied the union’s motion for an injunction that would delay Elliott’s suspension while the appeals process continues. But the court issued a 24-hour stay on the decision to allow the NFLPA time to file an emergency appeal.

This ruling upholds the original decision. Elliott will not be on Cheap Jerseys Soccer China the field this Sunday when the Cowboys face the Chiefs, and he is not eligible to return Cheap Jerseys Toronto until Week 15 against the Raiders.

Florida State’s Jacob Pugh says 2-5 start ‘like a nightmare’

Jacob Pugh has seen a lot in his four seasons at Florida State. What he has witnessed this season, though, has taken a toll.

The senior linebacker vented his frustration on Monday. After being picked to win the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Seminoles are at the bottom of the Atlantic Division with a 2-5 overall record — including 2-4 in conference play.

The league’s third-worst shooting team a year ago is now the third-best at 48.7 percent, and the league’s second-worst at shooting 3-pointers is now the best at 44.1 percent.

Memphis’ pace-of-play rating this season is 95.1, still the third slowest in the league, but slightly faster than last year’s 92.3.

The College Football Playoff selection committee ranked No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 4 Clemson but also put No. 5 Oklahoma ahead of No. 6 Ohio State, acknowledging the head-to-head result and sending a message that the Buckeyes still have some work to do, despite their impressive win over No. 7 Penn State.

The committee doesn’t try to avoid regular-season rematches in the semifinals. It’s No. 1 vs. No. 4, and No. 2 vs. No. 3. The committee will, however, try to avoid rematches in Cheap Jerseys World the Cheap Jerseys Wholesale other New Year’s Six bowls.

The highest-ranked team from the Group of 5 (MAC, Mountain West, American, Sun Belt, Conference USA) is guaranteed a spot in a New Year’s Six bowl.

Vikings’ offensive line down two with Pat Elflein (shoulder) out

The Vikings were also without tight end David Morgan, who is still in the concussion protocol after getting injured on Minnesota’s first drive in Atlanta.

But Theismann’s career-ending injury represents something more visceral. The Lawrence Taylor hit — probably still on instant replay in the minds of Washington fans — took out a Super Bowl-winning, MVP quarterback in one fell swoop. And did so at a time when demise did not feel inevitable for those wearing the burgundy and gold. In the Snyder Era, pain comes laced with politics and front-office clusterstuffs. Even Robert Griffin III’s injuries felt like a function of Washington dysfunction.

Theismann, though, went down in the midst of Washington’s best run. And before the 1987 Super Bowl eased the sting, it must have been harder to confront Washington mortality in the days before the Dan Snyder darkness.

We still don’t know what the Redskins will wear when they step onto the field Thursday night for their NFC East rivalry game at the Cowboys.

Washington players have apparently refused to wear their all-mustard-yellow Cheap Jerseys In Bulk color rush uniforms and, according to former Redskins tight end and current radio personality Chris Cooley, will instead opt for a burgundy jersey with burgundy bottoms.

The Redskins have not had a Thursday game that’s fallen under the “Thursday Night Football” umbrella since color rush uniforms were introduced last season.

The team hated the mustard look from the jump and proposed a rule in March that Cheap Jerseys In USA would allow them opt out of wearing what the organization described as “garish uniforms.”

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland told The Post an all-burgundy look “would be dope.”
