Yes, an upset of the Capitals is possible. Four of the last 11 Presidents' Trophy winners didn't get out of the first round.

I’m picking the Maple Leafs to win their first-round playoff series against the Washington Capitals for a lot of reasons — for one, possibly because I’m a desperate and
nearly penniless sports bettor who also had Jordan Spieth in the green jacket, Duke in the Final Four and Hillary in the White House.

Favourites? Right now they’re not my favourite.

can’t-lose overdogs — the idea that
, not because I know they’re going to win,So I’m picking the Leafs, but because I know this: The idea that the Capitals are prohibitive

they ought to be considered a Cup-or-bust outfit that will hoist Lord Stanley’s mug or be deemed a failure — ignores much of what we’ve learned in recent history.

winning the Presidents’ Trophy for the third time in the Alex Ovechkin era. But we should
,Yes, the Capitals are the league’s best team as measured by regular-season record

know by now that the Presidents’ Trophy is to playoff success what the president’s Twitter account is to cool-headed statesmanship — not often synonymous.

Eleven teams have won the Presidents’ Trophy since the lockout that killed the 2004-05 season. Only two of those 11 have won the Stanley Cup. That’s an 18% conversion rate
when it comes to turning the league’s best record over 82 games into a championship in the salary-cap era. That’s not so great.

Less great? Four times in the past 11 seasons, the team with the NHL’s best regular-season point total has been eliminated in the first round. That means the underdogs are
batting .363 when it comes to launching the so-called Stanley Cup favourites into oblivion.

speaking of the NHL’s penchant for first-round Goliath-smashing. “Sometimes the eighth seed really isn’t the
,“It really is hard to explain,” said Leafs veteran Brian Boyle

eighth seed. Maybe they had some injuries or made some trades. Teams change. Teams grow. Young teams get better.”

None of that proves anything, of course. But it does strongly suggest the young-and-getting-better Maple Leafs aren’t as massive a long shot as some would have you believe.
Have the Capitals been a more formidable team than the Maple Leafs over the past six months? Well, yeah. Their record says so. But what’s that worth? That’s the question
nobody can answer. The nature of hockey just doesn’t really allow it to be answered.

” Connor Carrick, as veteran, as experienced,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey, crumble before. It happens,“You’ve seen teams that are as good (as the Capitals),Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey, the ex-Capitals defenceman now playing for
Toronto,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, was saying Wednesday. “That’s hockey. It’s a hard game. One thing can change a series. An injury. A call. One game . . .”

One game. Game One. And imagine what happens if the Maple Leafs find a way to win. Let’s say Toronto’s defensive corps rises to the challenge. Let’s say Toronto’s young guns
who’ll be in the lineup for the first time in about a month
,get their “five a night,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey,” as Leafs coach Mike Babcock sometimes likes to brag. Let’s say Martin Marincin

,replacing the still-injured Nikita Zaitsev, doesn’t turn out to be the liability some feel he can be. Or even if Marincin does turn out to be the rusty mess you’d expect

’s say goaltender Frederik Andersen brings forth a game plucked from his best stuff to paper over the cracks. The Leafs have used that recipe many times this season. All of it
’s doable and fathomable.

, if the Leafs win, Washington’s hockey audience gets apoplectic. Suddenly all of Washington’s doubters will be in here-we-go-again mode,And yet, because the Ovechkin Capitals

for all their promise, have either lost in the first round or missed the playoffs in an amazing six of Ovechkin’s 11 previous seasons with the club. Lose another and the
Twitterer-in-Chief might be giving his D.C. neighbours the Meryl Streep treatment. Overrated. Losers. Sad.

‘OK, all it takes is one game,” Carrick said. “You win one game, and now you see a crack. And you understand,“Once you’re in the playoffs, if I can just carbon-copy that
three more times . . .’ ”

Mike Babcock has spent time this week talking about the great Red Wings team he coached back in 2005-06 — a team that won a league-best 58 regular-season games before it was
bounced in the first round by the Edmonton Oilers. Babcock has spoken about how the expectations of great things can produce the “pucker factor.” That’s “pucker,” as in
“to become constricted,” or “to shrivel.” That’s no doubt part of what’s happened to the four Presidents’ Trophy-winning teams that have lost in the first round in the
past 11 years.

So there’s the pucker factor. And then there’s the puck-stopper factor. That Babcock-coached Red Wings team was captained by Steve Yzerman and stacked with Hall of Famers,
among them Leafs president Brendan Shanahan, Chris Chelios and Nick Lidstrom. And yet it was Oilers goaltender Dwayne Roloson who proved to be the most important player in the

who put up a .957 save percentage and two
,The 2008-09 San Jose Sharks finished first overall, but they couldn’t finish around the net occupied by Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller

shutouts in that toppling.

The Presidents’ Trophy-winning Vancouver Canucks of 2011-2012 were out-Quicked,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey,Womens Adrian Peterson Jersey, with L.A. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick allowing just eight goals against in five games. And the
2009-10 Capitals that had the NHL’s best record and exited in the opening round; Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey,Montreal’s netminder Jaroslav Halak and his .939 series save percentage made that happen.

That’s not to say something like it is going to happen here, but why couldn’t Andersen join that group of disrupters?

six years on,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey, has so far proven to be a superior playoff performer,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey,is that their own goaltender,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, Braden Holtby, too. Still,The difference for the Capitals, hockey is fleeting
and ever-changing. Last year the Leafs finished last overall. This year they’ve got a chance to eliminate first overall. That they’ve travelled such a distance in a matter of
12 months tells you everything you need to know about the thinness of the margins in this business.

,That’s not to say anybody actually knows what’s going to happen, other than some random happening you probably can’t foresee. When nothing’s certain

foreseeable — even the Maple Leafs moving on to the second round. Don’t bet on it for anything other than recreational purposes, of course. But don’t dismiss it as
impossibility, either.

Tradition & attrition: Bears, Packers slog it out at Lambeau

MILWAUKEE (AP) Another week, another round of injuries for the Green Bay Packers.

This week has been especially unkind for coach Mike McCarthy’s offensive line , with a short turnaround from an overtime game on Sunday to face the Chicago Bears on Thursday
night at Lambeau Field.

Don’t look for sympathy from Bears coach John Fox. He is already down three defensive starters less than a month into the season, and the Bears are also coming off an overtime

” Fox said. ”I think we’re playing a game Thursday night,”Nobody is going to come rescue us, so we’ll do our best to get ready for it.”

The latest installment of the NFL’s oldest rivalry is a meeting between teams trying to make it to the long weekend off that follows a Thursday game without anyone else getting

listed as
, the Packers have had it worse,Womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey,By numbers alone,Womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, especially on the O-line. Tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) are on the injury report again

doubtful for Thursday. Kyle Murphy went on injured reserve this week, joining two other backup tackles knocked out by injuries.

Ten players are on the injury report,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, not including two this week placed on injured reserve. The Packers do expect receiver Randall Cobb to return Thursday from a chest injury.

”The No. 1 goal for our football team as far as preparing for this game is for everybody to get their bodies back,Womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey,” McCarthy said.

The Packers have a great equalizer in quarterback Aaron Rodgers. They’re never out of a game at home as long as he’s healthy, such as when Green Bay came back from a 14-point
halftime deficit last week to beat the Bengals 27-24 in overtime.

”Part of the puzzle is keeping our QB upright and that’s the most important thing,” Packers offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett said.

Nick Kwiatkoski,Chicago lost safety Quintin Demps to a broken arm last week. The Bears have also lost linebacker Jerrell Freeman and Freeman’s replacement, to pectoral

The win over the Steelers does offer a confidence boost in a short week after holding Pittsburgh to 282 yards.

” Fox said. ”On the short week,”I know they’ve had their share of injuries as well across the board, obviously it’s a challenge for both sides. But it starts with Aaron and
he always makes things interesting.”

Other notes and takeaways ahead of the 195th meeting in the series:

BEARS QB: Mike Glennon’s performance hasn’t quieted the calls from Bears fans to see No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback. The Bears aren’t throwing deep, and
an injury-depleted receiving group isn’t getting targets. The Packers are playing better against the pass this season, ranked seventh in the league.

”Whatever it takes to win. Each week is going to be different with what we have to do,” Glennon said.

RUN IT UP: Handing the ball off to Jordan Howard might be a good start.

New York Giants: Owner John Mara mum on meeting with Odell Beckham Jr.

EAST RUTHERFORD, New York Giants co-owner John Mara voiced his unhappiness with the behavior exhibited by receiver Odell Beckham Jr.'s touchdown celebration

On Wednesday, but would not divulge what was said between the two men., Mara met with Beckham in his office after the team's practice

Mara said,Asked if he felt Beckham embarrassed the organization with his actions, I guess. Only thing is causing a penalty to the team -- that's really it., "More myself

we didn't have any setback from there and covered the kickoff well.","My only regret is causing us 15 (penalty) yards and having to cover a long kickoff. Thankfully

Head coach Ben McAdoo, was a bit more direct this time around., who initially avoided the issue when he was asked about it during his conference call on Monday

"I do know going forward," Beckham added., I have better celebrations

I can almost guarantee you that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will join the ongoing NFL protests in some way on Sunday before or during his team’s game against New

Newton gave the oddest game-week press conference he has given in his seven years as a Panther on Wednesday. It went for 18 minutes. It contained 15 questions. All 15 were about
the NFL protests – there was not a single query about the actual upcoming game against the defending Super Bowl champions – and Newton’s answers to all 15 were nuanced and

After being part of what he called an “extremely productive” meeting between veteran players and team owner Jerry Richardson at Richardson’s home on Tuesday, Newton also
sounded regretful that he had not joined the NFL-wide protests that hundreds of players did join last Sunday.

So get ready. Because like it or not – and Newton is well aware many of you will not like it – here it comes.

I don’t know what he’s going to do Sunday in terms of protesting,Womens Cam Newton Jersey, but I will be extremely surprised if the quarterback doesn’t do something. I would guess he will share some
sort of unification gesture with his teammates at the beginning of the game and then maybe also do something else on his own.

he said,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey,The quarterback has digested the issue now,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, which he had not fully done over a weekend in which he was consumed with game preparation. He has also gotten permission
from Richardson to peacefully protest without repercussions from the owner if he feels so led.

” Newton said,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey,“The time is upon us,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey, “to do something to bring people closer together.”

Carolina Panthers Cam Newton discusses NFL protests, feelings about Colin Kaepernick

how protests are not meant to offend the US flag,Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton discusses freedom of speech, and the possibility of other team members participating in a future

The issue continues to burn as President Donald Trump continues to heap more fuel on the fire of his anti-NFL message via Twitter and interviews.

President Trump talked with reporters about NFL players who have protested social inequality,On Wednesday,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey, police brutality and other issues. “You cannot have people
” he said. “And in my opinion,disrespecting our national anthem, our country – and that’s what they’re doing, our flag,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, the NFL has to change. Or you know what’s going to
happen? Their business is going to go to hell.”

Trump also restarted this firestorm last week by saying at a political rally in Alabama that any NFL player who disrespected the flag was a “son of a bitch” who should be
where no one has protested,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,fired. And he has blamed NFL rating woes on protests during the anthem (although NASCAR,Womens Walter Payton Jersey, also has seen a ratings drop).

Muhammad Ali – the great boxer who was also well-known for his refusal to accept the status quo – is one of Newton’s heroes. When asked Wednesday what the late Ali would do
Newton said: “I really don’t know. ... But I know he would be very stern in his beliefs. And like I say,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey, he would have thought about something,in the current situation, and
this is that time for me.”

Lock arms with teammates? Take a knee? Raise a fist? Stay in the locker room during the national anthem like teammate Julius Peppers – the sole Panther to protest last Sunday
– did against the New Orleans Saints?

All of that is possible. But knowing Newton – the man who created his own alphabet and comes to every postgame press conference in clothing finery a peacock might envy – it
may be something unique.

What is clear is that Newton and his teammates have received some assurances from Richardson that a protest will not affect their standing on the team. I thought Richardson’s
“stick-to-sports” statement about Sunday’s protests was tone-deaf and would hurt Carolina in the 2018 free-agency period. This fence-mending was necessary from both a
business and a human perspective, and I’m glad it occurred.

Benefits and backlashes

Richardson also told the Panthers players he met with that they had to be prepared for public repercussions if they went down the protest path, Newton confirmed. The quarterback
doesn’t seem to mind that idea, saying nearly everything he ever says has “its benefits and its backlashes.”

Newton also reiterated a common theme from protesters – their stance is about social inequality and has nothing to do with the American flag.

“By no means do we want to offend anybody,” Newton said. “Nobody who has protested meant for it to be disrespectful to the United States flag.”

Newton said it was to unify people. Wearing a T-shirt that proclaimed “One Love” in an unusual typeface,As for his personal message, Newton said: “The message is unity for
white,me. Black, different minorities around America – that’s my message. I want everybody to come together. We get nowhere separated. ... We all are created equal. ... We
need to find some type of way to come together to make the situation better. Because where we’re going now? It’s not healthy. It’s not healthy at all.”

TEMPE, Ariz. — A pair of painfully familiar problems surfaced in the Arizona Cardinals’ 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

First, especially right tackle Jared Veldheer. And the Arizona defense,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey, the offensive line had a rough time holding off the Cowboys’ pass rush Monday night,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey, after playing well for three quarters, couldn’t hold off Dallas when the game was on the line in the fourth.

It was almost exactly the same pattern that Arizona exhibited in its other loss,Womens Joe Montana Jersey, 35-23 at Detroit in the season opener.

So the Cardinals find themselves 1-2 heading into Sunday’s matchup with NFC West foe San Francisco.

Coach Bruce Arians praised quarterback Carson Palmer, who was under extreme duress much of the night but still completed 29 of 48 passes for 325 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

“I don’t think our quarterback could have played any better,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey, he moved his feet great. He was around the pocket. He was the quarterback I knew we’d see all year,” Arians said. “He was lights out from start to finish. Even getting hit that many times,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, and we can win with Carson playing like that.”

If he can stay healthy.

The Cowboys had 11 quarterback hits and sacked Palmer six times, who repeatedly beat Veldheer, three by Demarcus Lawrence, the big tackle who was moved from the left to the right side this season.

The problems, are “mostly on the right side” of the line. Second-year pro Evan Boehm has had some growing pains, Arians said, but Veldheer has been the chief culprit.

” Veldheer said after the game,“Just wasn’t good enough, adding that the only way to improve things is to study tape and fix the mistakes.

in his weekly radio appearance,General manager Steve Keim, was highly critical of Veldheer.

“I don’t think it has anything to do with (Veldheer moving to) right tackle, his technique,” Keim said. “The fact of the matter is he has to get better. He’s got to improve all the little things — his footwork, his hand placement and get back to basics.

“Again,000 people saw it last night. Jared is a prideful guy, 64, and I expect nothing less than for him to be in here this week and make some improvements.”

Arians said Veldheer’s problems are “just technique.”

“It was the same problem he had on the left side,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, “of being bull rushed and not getting his hands on people. He’s got to get his hands on people. If he gets his hands on people,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey,” Arians said, he’s big and strong and won’t get bull rushed.”

To make matters worse,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey, who had replaced the injured Mike Iupati at left guard,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey, and John Wetzel, the Cardinals have two new injuries on the offensive line. Alex Boone,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey, playing in place of injured D.J. Humphries at left tackle, both have triceps injuries and were to undergo MRIs.

Then there are those fourth-quarter woes.

At Detroit,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, the game was tied at 14-14 after three quarters, Arizona led 17-15 after three quarters and was outscored 20-6 in the fourth. On Monday night, and the Cowboys outscored the Cardinals 14-3 in the fourth.

“That’s two games that we had a chance to win in the fourth quarter and didn’t get it done, “one on the road and one at home. It wasn’t effort,” Arians said, it was just executing on a couple of plays.”

It didn’t help that the Cardinals had a drive of nearly nine minutes late in the first quarter and early in the second and came up empty. A touchdown pass was negated by a holding penalty,Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey, then Phil Dawson missed a 36-yard field goal try. That’s the 42-year-old kicker’s third miss in three games.

Kicking for San Francisco, Dawson missed three field goals all of last season.

No one had a better game, though, who tried to will the Cardinals to victory with a huge night, highlighted by a circus catch in traffic for a first down on a third-and-18 play. Fitzgerald was targeted 15 times and caught 13 of them, than Larry Fitzgerald, matching a career high for receptions in a game, for 149 yards.

Now the Cardinals have a short week to prepare for the 49ers, who should be well-rested after a loss to the Los Angeles Rams last Thursday night.

One consolation for the Cardinals is that no one is dominating the NFC West. Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona are all 1-2. The Rams lead it at 2-1.

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. The ten-day gap between Week 3 and 4 benefited the 49ers as they recovered from a handful of injuries suffered against the Los Angeles Rams.

One of those players is running back Carlos Hyde.

After leaving the game briefly with a hip injury,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey, Hyde returned against the Rams and ran for 84 yards and two touchdowns.

Hyde was more active than the previous days,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey,Hyde has been listed as questionable for Sunday after being limited in practice all week. On Friday,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey, however he is “still hurting” according to Kyle Shanahan. The head coach announced on Friday that the Hyde’s availability against the Cardinals will be a game-time decision.

The 49ers offense have leaned heavily on Hyde and the run game. Hyde's 253 rushing yards ranks third in the NFL behind only Kareem Hunt (401) and Dalvin Cook (28.

If Hyde is unable to play on Sunday,Womens Drew Brees Jersey, it will be a combination of Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert in the backfield against Arizona's 10th-ranked run defense.

should be good to go on Sunday. They're officially listed as questionable,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, Kyle Juszczyk and Brock Coyle,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, all of whom suffered concussions against the Rams,Jaquiski Tartt, but all three have shed the blue non-contact jersey at practice.

I don’t ever try to totally predict. Things can change,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey," Shanahan said. "When it comes to concussions,Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey, my experience with it is,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey,“I’m optimistic that they will go, and you never totally know what to expect. And you have to be very safe with that stuff also.”

who suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 1, however he will not be active in Sunday’s contest. Although Foster has not been a participant in practice, he has been making great strides in his rehab. The rookie,Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey,Reuben Foster will make the trip to Arizona, has been seen engaging in light running and workouts throughout the week.

As far as the Cardinals, defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (calf) and guards Alex Boone (chest) and Mike Iupati (tricep) are all listed as out for Sunday’s contest. Tackle D.J. Humphries (knee) and wide receivers John Brown (quadricep) and J.J. Nelson (hamstring) are listed as questionable.

The complete list of inactive players will be released 90 minutes prior to kickoff on Sunday. Stay tuned to 49ers.com for updates.

The hype around Halas Hall this week is obviously all about rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky, but the Bears have two other quarterbacks — and a stellar receiving tandem — to worry about as they prepare for "Monday Night Football" against the Vikings at Soldier Field.

The Bears don't know whether they will face starting quarterback Sam Bradford or backup Case Keenum. Bradford has missed the last three games with a sore left knee after throwing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 1 victory over the Saints.

Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said he thinks Bradford will play, but he said preparing for both isn't necessarily more difficult because "their offense hasn't changed at all" since Bradford went down.

and I think it will continue for them, meaning throughout the season,"They really have had a good year offensively,Womens John Ross Jersey," Fangio said. "I don't think it's an early season flash."

The Vikings suffered a tough loss when rookie running back Dalvin Cook tore the ACL in his left knee last week,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, but regaining Bradford could provide a boost to an offense that collected blowout victories over the Saints and Buccaneers but was held to single digits in scoring against the Steelers and Lions.

and he told reporters in Minnesota on Friday morning that he felt "much better." If not Bradford,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, the Bears will face Keenum,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey,Bradford practiced Thursday and Friday for the first time since Sept. 21, who has thrown for 755 yards and three touchdowns while going 1-2.

I'm hoping that by (Saturday) I'll have a good idea of where I'm at,"In my mind," Bradford told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

the Vikings have had one of the most productive wide receiver tandems in the NFL this season,Regardless of the quarterback, a stark contrast to the Bears group of receivers.

"They have been explosive in all instances," Bears coach John Fox said.

Stefon Diggs leads the NFL with 391 yards and eight receptions of 20 or more yards. He's averaging 17.8 yards per catch and has caught four touchdown passes.

Adam Thielen is fourth in the league with 358 yards and he has seven catches of 20 or more yards and two of 40 or more.

" Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara said. "Usually when you see how good a receiver is,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, you ask yourself is this receiver good because he's a good receiver or is it their quarterback or is it a combination of both? Those guys, they have played with two quarterbacks and they're making plays,"They're catching a lot of their balls,Authentic John Ross Jersey, so you have to tip your caps to them.

"Diggs,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, I've known since I came into the league and I always have thought he was special. He kind of reminds me of Odell (Beckham Jr.) from New York. You can't sleep on a guy like Thielen. It's on film he's a playmaker. … We have to be aware of where they're at on the field and make plays when we can."

Floyd had 37 catches for 488 yards last season with the Cardinals and Patriots.

The whole group is sure to test a Bears defense that hasn't recorded an interception this season.

The Bears also are dealing with the absences of inside linebackers Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral injury) and Danny Trevathan (suspension) and a triceps injury to outside linebacker Willie Young. But they at least have in their favor the absence of Cook, who had rushed for 354 yards.

Latavius Murray,His replacement, rushed for 788 yards on 195 carries last season with the Raiders.

exceptional back with great big-play ability,"Dalvin was an exceptional," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "I don't know whether we'll get the big-play ability out of Latavius. But we expect him to continue to help the running game as best (he) can."

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was limited for a second consecutive practice Friday and coach Jack Del Rio declined to say what,Womens Pat Tillman Jersey, if any,Womens David Johnson Jersey, role Carr will have this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.

Carr broke a bone in his back late in the third quarter of Oakland's 16-10 loss in Denver this past Sunday. He was initially diagnosed with back spasms but the injury was later revealed to be a transverse process fracture.

Del Rio indicated that Carr would miss the Baltimore game and possibly up to six weeks but the fourth-year quarterback was cleared for light practice Thursday and Friday and is listed as questionable.,Earlier this week

Carr leads a long list of players on the injury list. Del Rio declined to discuss any of them.

''Before you even have to ask,Authentic Austin Hooper Jersey, there are a lot of question marks on the injury report and that's what they are,'' Del Rio said. ''I'm not going to really talk about injuries and what we may and may not do or who we may or may not play or when and all that kind of stuff, when we're going to utilize people. Not going to get into all of that.

''We do have a number of people who are questionable. We have time before we tee it up. They'll remain a question mark until we make the final decision.''

Manuel has started seven games since his rookie season and will be tasked with trying to jump-start an offense that has been held to 10 points in each of the last two weeks.,The Raiders have already named EJ Manuel as the starter for Sunday. The 16th overall pick in 2013

''I've been in this situation before even when I was in college,'' Manuel said. ''Then when I was in Buffalo,Authentic David Johnson Jersey, when Tyrod (Taylor) became the starter,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey, still just being ready as the backup. It kind of puts me in familiar territory.''

Connor Cook,Womens Deion Jones Jersey, also is on the roster but has been inactive in each of Oakland's first four games.,Authentic Vic Beasley Jr Jersey, a fourth-round draft pick in 2016

although left tackle Donald Penn told reporters Thursday that the quarterback was ahead of schedule in his recovery.,Womens Vic Beasley Jr Jersey,The Raiders have been mostly quiet regarding Carr's status this week

but Del Rio isn't saying.,Womens Austin Hooper Jersey,It's conceivable that Carr could suit up for the Ravens game as the team's emergency quarterback

'' Del Rio said.,''We prefer to keep our business in house

Cornerback David Amerson has cleared the NFL concussion protocol, Amerson was limited in practice and is questionable.,Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey, according to Del Rio. Like Carr

cornerback Gareon Conley (shin) and running back DeAndre Washington (hamstring) were limited in practice and are questionable. Jackson had not practiced at all this week.,Notes: Right guard Gabe Jackson (foot)

As if the 0-4 Browns didn’t need more motivation to win this weekend, the Jets’ social media team offered some up Friday. In the early afternoon, the official Jets Twitter account put up a post intended to troll Cleveland.

The post was a cartoon picture based on the Browns’ alternative logo of a tenacious dog. In the Jets’ post, the cartoon dog has a sad face, wearing both a post-surgical ‘cone of shame’ and a collar with a Jets charm on it. Beneath the cartoon was a single word: “Sit.”

The Jets deleted the post about an hour later. According to the Associated Press, the post was re-tweeted 300 times in that hour.

Bowles couldn’t have been happy with that. On Thursday he said that the Jets, at 2-2, have “nothing to brag about.”

The Demario Davis who came back, in trade from Cleveland,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey, for a second stint with the Jets has been very good so far. The linebacker has taken well to calling the defensive signals and leads the Jets with 49 tackles.

Davis,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, who left the Jets after the 2015 season and signed a two-year deal with the Browns,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey, was acquired in June for Calvin Pryor.

“He’s meant a lot. He’s been a vocal leader,Womens Drew Brees Jersey,” head coach Todd Bowles said. “His overall leadership and understanding of the game has helped out the younger guys a lot.”

Davis sees the difference in his play from the last time he was a Jet.

“Night and day — you turn on the tape you can see it,” he said. “I’m better in a lot of ways, as far as a personal standpoint and a player standpoint. I think if you look at it you can see it. …[In Cleveland] I grew as a person and I grew as a player. Being there I think everything kind of helped me be more prepared for this season right here.”

He wasn’t sure how he was going to feel going back to face the Browns on Sunday.

shake their hands,Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey,“I won’t know until Sunday when I’m out there,” he said. “I’m tight with a lot of guys there. I’ll see those guys after the game,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, show some love.”

Defensive lineman Kony Ealy again was unable to practice because of a shoulder injury and will not play Sunday. He said he had gone for X-rays and doesn’t believe it will keep him out for a second game.

“It’s something that’s going to be ready to go next week,Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey,” he said. “I’m doing the things necessary and taking precautions that nothing is nicked up.”

who was suspended the first four weeks,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey,RB Matt Forte (knee,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, toe) missed another day of practice and is out for Sunday’s game,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey, as are LB Josh Martin (ankle) and CB Darryl Roberts (hamstring). CB Juston Burris (foot) and DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder) were limited and are listed as questionable. … Bowles said he has not decided whether WR Jalin Marshall, will be activated for the game.

If there's one thing NFL teams hate more than losses,Authentic John Ross Jersey, it's "distractions." So when Steelers receiver Antonio Brown flipped a Gatorade bucket on the sideline during the Steelers' victory over the Ravens on Sunday -- he was mad that Ben Rothlisberger didn't spot him on a wide-open route -- he created an immediate controversy.

Antonio Brown was not happy on the Steelers sideline. pic.twitter.com/zadJQFqGt2

— Dan Levy (@DanLevyThinks) October 1,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, 2017

Brown did his best to end the firestorm Friday. He revealed that he spoke with both Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley to clear the air. He also expressed regret for his antics.

"You've got to do a better job of controlling emotions,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey," Brown said,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, per ESPN. "I don't want to wake up and turn on the TV and you guys are talking about me throwing a tantrum. We should be talking about Ben and a lot of guys who had a great game, the Steelers winning a big game."

Brown also said he was glad Roethlisberger called him out. Earlier this week, Roethlisberger called Brown's outburst "unfortunate." Steelers coach Mike Tomlin also called Brown's acton a "mistake."

Brown acknowledged his mistake on Friday.

"It's not about me. It's about the Steelers,Womens John Ross Jersey," Brown said. "We all make mistakes as players. Sometimes I might miss a read. I don't see Ben throwing me under the bus if I drop the ball or if I run the wrong route or didn't get my depth. I don't see him kicking the cooler. It's no excuse for my behavior. I'm glad[Roethlisberger] did what he did. He called me out. As a general of our team,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, he has every right to call anything out. ... I'm just grateful we have a great leader who's forgiving and accommodating and willing to talk to me."

And so,Womens Jim Brown Jersey, hopefully that ends the controversy. Brown,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, arguably the best receiver in football,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey, probably shouldn't have reacted the way that he did. But it's not a big deal. Football is an emotional sport. Stuff like this happens. The Steelers will move on and Brown will see plenty of more chances to catch open touchdowns from Roethlisberger.

And for what it's worth,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, Brown was open.

Steady Smith guides unbeaten Chiefs past Texans

HOUSTON -- Thanks to another sparkling performance from Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, what once appeared to be an insurmountable Kansas City lead turned tenuous enough in the second half that Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was required to do more of what he has done all season.

Smith tossed three touchdown passes and engineered a decisive scoring drive in the fourth quarter of the Chiefs’ 42-34 win over the Texans on Sunday night at NRG Stadium.

Smith authored a response after Watson completed his second second-half scoring pass to receiver Will Fuller, a 48-yarder with 12 minutes left that cut what was a 16-point deficit to 26-20. Watson wound up throwing for five touchdowns.

Smith led a six-play,Needing a reply, 70-yard march that required just 3:03 to complete. His 10-yard touchdown pass to De‘Anthony Thomas extended the lead to 32-20 with 8:57 left.

I knew the onus was back on us to go answer,” said Smith,Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey,“Once they made it a one-score game,Authentic Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, who finished 29 of 37 for 324 yards and did not throw an interception. “If you keep answering them, it kind of becomes demoralizing when you make it a two-score game again.”

Receiver/return specialist Tyreek Hill ensured that the Chiefs (5-0) would remain as the lone unbeaten team in the NFL when he returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown with 7:22 left.

The Texans (2-3) not only dropped the game,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, but they also lost three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt to a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg during the first quarter.

According to multiple media reports, Watt will undergo season-ending surgery. He participated in just three games last season before undergoing back surgery that kept him out the rest of the year.

who last week threw for four touchdowns and ran for another in a win over the Tennessee Titans,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jersey, completed 16 of 31 attempts for 261 yards Sunday. Four of his scoring passes came in the second half,Watson, keeping the Texans in contention. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught three of the touchdown passes.

” Hopkins said. “A team like that, you can’t make many mistakes because they’re a good team. They’re undefeated for a reason,“We played a good team, so got to give your hats off to the Chiefs.”

the focal point of the Texans’ defense in the first half,Womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey,The Chiefs amassed 450 yards and 29 first downs. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt, still managed 107 rushing yards on 29 attempts.

Smith produced a breathtaking display for the Chiefs prior to the intermission, with Kansas City converting 7 of 10 third downs en route to scoring on all five of its first-half possessions.

With the Texans keying on Hunt, Smith passed for 207 yards and two touchdowns in the half.

Tight end Travis Kelce was the primary beneficiary, turning 11 targets into eight receptions for 98 yards. Kelce was evaluated for a concussion at halftime and did not return.

covering 8 yards for a 13-0 lead with 5:45 left in the second quarter before capping a seven-play,Smith completed both of his first-half scores to running back Charcandrick West, 75-yard march in just 75 seconds with a 4-yarder with 34 seconds left in the half.

” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said of West. “Now, he’s kind of the relief pitcher,“He’s been the starter and handled that well,Womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey, and he’s handling that really well,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey,too.”

The Chiefs’ final scoring drive in the first half answered the Texans’ lone sustained march before the break,Womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey,one that concluded with Watson finding Hopkins for a 6-yard strike in the back of the end zone.

Houston found its stride. Still,After possessing the ball for just 8:17 in the first half,Womens Leonard Fournette Jersey, the Texans couldn’t slow Smith and the red-hot Chiefs.

” Texans head coach Bill O‘Brien said of Smith. “He got outside the pocket. That was one of the keys to the game: We had to try to keep him in the pocket, and obviously,“He’s really good at extending plays, we didn’t accomplish that.”

and the Houston Chronicle reported he will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Mercilus recorded 7.5 sacks last season. ... Chiefs RG Cam Erving, acquired from the Cleveland Browns at the close of training camp, got the start in place of Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (knee). Erving, a first-round pick of the Browns in 2015,NOTES: Texans LB Whitney Mercilus was lost to injury on the first defensive series, started 17 games for Cleveland in two seasons,Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey, including 13 in 2016. ... Chiefs S Steven Terrell was knocked out of the game with a concussion on the opening kickoff.

Joe Flacco had one of his best games in recent memory today,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, dropping 222 yards on 16 completions. He consistently put the ball in places to make his receivers succeed, and he also didn’t turn it over, the first time in ten games without an interception.

PFF took notice of his deep passing attack, as he has struggled through the season thus far. Today, though, he completed four three deep shots for 133 yards.

The offensive line was outstanding today, in large part due to the dominance of Ronnie Stanley, whom recorded an 83.8 grade, highest on the team. He only allowed a single hurry on 27 pass block snaps.

The entire offensive line recorded at an 88.5 pass blocking efficiency rating. They only allowed four total pressures.

The Ravens star wideouts,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey, Mike Wallace and Jeremy Maclin,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey, both continued their streak of zero dropped passes in 2017. According to PFF,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, no Ravens receiver has more than one drop in 2017.

After blowing up the past few games,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, Ben Watson cooled off with a low grade of 31.4. He only caught two of four targets, for two yards total. The Ravens didn’t need him in the passing game, as Wallace and Maclin were the threats today.

Baltimore watched as multiple players thrived. Willie Henry flexed his muscles as he added two more batted passes on the season. He also led the team with four defensive stops.,On defense

as Suggs recorded one sack,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey,Both outside linebackers had good games, Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey,Matt Judon led all defensive players with an 81.2 game grade,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, one hit and three defensive stops; meanwhile, with one hurry and two defensive stops.

maybe,The biggest takeaway, Baltimore blitzed on 41.9% of plays. The league average this year is 29.8%. Clearly they wanted to pressure E.J. Manuel,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, is the Ravens blitz percentage. Against Oakland,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey, and it worked.

Hunt leads the NFL with 609 yards rushing. He's the first Chiefs rookie to have 600 yards rushing since Christian Okoye finished with 660 in 1987.

"Everybody knows he can run,Authentic Dalvin Cook Jersey, but still he looks downfield to make plays. The throws that he made toward the end of the game were some special throws."

Sunday night marked yet another dramatic matchup in which the Green Bay Packers pulled off with a victory.

the Packers rose to the occasion to pull off a win in Week 5 of the regular season against the Dallas Cowboys. Rogers’ momentum persisted throughout the second half,With quarterback Aaron Rodgers once more going all in, Womens Jim Brown Jersey,all the way up to a 75-yard drive that together with a 12-yard touchdown pass led to a final score of 35-31.

going into halftime with a 15-point advantage—a similar situation to last week’s loss against the Los Angeles Rams.,Womens John Ross Jersey,While the Packers came in with a record of 3-1,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, the Cowboys stepped onto the field with a less favorable predicted outcome. Nonetheless,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, Dallas put on a great performance in which they dominated the first half

but similar to last week’s loss,It was Dak Prescott who would throw touchdown passes on the Cowboy’s first three drives,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, the offense hit a wall once the second half got underway.

The Giants are 0-5, and something had to give. Ben McAdoo took that step by handing over play calling responsibilities to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan.

the Giants were ranked 31st in the league with just 77.8 yards per game. The Giants averaged just 16.4 points per game,New York hasn’t been able to get the run game going at all. Coming into Sunday Night Football against the Broncos,Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey, which ranks them near the bottom of the league.

The offensive line has been completely inept. And things looked especially grim with Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall both landing on injured reserve after Week 5.

the change is working. New York kicked off Sunday night’s matchup with Denver with a 13-play,Womens Calais Campbell Jersey,So far,Womens Adam Thielen Jersey, 69-yard field goal drive. It was the first time this season the Broncos defense allowed a score on an opponent’s opening possession.

Who is Mike Sullivan? Sullivan is in his second season as the Giants’ offensive coordinator. It’s his second stint in New York,Authentic Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, where he previously was the wide receivers coach and then the quarterbacks coach from 2004 through 2011.

Sullivan said in September that he didn’t think predictability was the problem for the Giants.

“I think it goes a lot deeper than that, via Howie Kussoy of the New York Post. “I think we’ve certainly looked at the tape and haven’t necessarily had the sense of,Authentic Adam Thielen Jersey, ‘Oh man,” Sullivan said, they certainly had our playbook right here’ or ‘Holy cow,Womens Golden Tate III Jersey, they must have been able to hear what we said on the headsets.’

“We haven’t been out there long enough to be predictable.”

What does this mean for the Giants? It’s possible that a fresh perspective on the offense will breathe some life into the Giants. It’s also hard for a head coach to manage the big picture aspects of a game and keep focused on calling plays.

With a porous offensive line,Authentic Calais Campbell Jersey,and so much offensive talent sidelined with injuries,Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, the change probably won’t fully right the ship. But the Giants have problems across the board, a shaky run game, and the change may help start to get the offense back on track, which this team desperately needs.
