However, plenty of players were lost in the heat of battle. Denver wide receiver Wes Welker sustained a concussion in the second half and will be evaluated further as the week progresses. Tight end Julius Thomas suffered an ankle injury and despite coming back into the game, will need to have tests done.
For the Chiefs, right tackle Eric Fisher had to leave with a shoulder injury in the fourth quarter. Fisher did not return and his status is in question at this point for next Sunday. Defensive end Mike DeVito left in the first quarter with a knee injury. He left the field under his own power but did not come back.
For the San Diego Chargers, wide receiver Keenan Allen suffered a knee injury against the Miami Dolphins in a 20-16 loss. Allen exited with an apparent knee injury.
Slam dunk for the Cowboys, right? No, not at all, because this is the Cowboys, America’s team because America and Americans are fundamentally dysfunctional. It’s in our national DNA.
Also part of our DNA, second chances. Monte Kiffin, Bill Callahan, Derek Dooley, Rod Marinelli … Dallas’ coaching staff is filled with second chancers. Jason Garrett could be looking for a second chance of his own after this season, pending the outcome of another disappointing Week 17 showdown for the division title, probably.
Predicting this game is impossible, because the NFC East is the ugly underside of parity. Since Dallas did win its first game with the Giants this season, I’ll go with the Giants to win this one, stoking the fires of a three team race to nowhere.
So the Chargers got blown out by the Broncos. Relax, that happens to the best of them. They get a crack at the reeling Dolphins and can move back into the wild card picture this week. It’s not enough to convince me to tune in, but this game should clear up a bit of the 4-5 logjam in the AFC.
Retired NFL defensive end Stephen White opens up his Notebook, where stopping the Broncos machine is the hot topic after Week 10.
Satellite photos of the mysterious area known as “West Platte Drive.”
Don’t just imagine it. Try to see it. Try to be there, as midnight rushes up on Sunday night. Dwayne Bowe’s Audi A8 is clocked by a police officer on Northwest Platte Drive, traveling at 48 miles-per-hour on a road with a speed limit of 35. The lights start to flash somewhere around where you see the little green “A” above.
Now follow that blue line up along the stretch of road that Dwayne Bowe never got to travel that night, up past the slumbering industry and over rustling Lane Creek, toward the little green “B.” That marks the location of the Sonic to which we can only assume 鈥?given that Bowe is alleged to have asked the officer who pulled him over if he knew whether “the Sonic [was] open” 鈥?Bowe was headed.
Game Womens Spencer Drango Jersey That’s 2707 NW Vivion Road. Bowe, as we know now and he could not have known then, would not make it to Sonic that night. There was an odor of marijuana in the car, and all those grams of marijuana 鈥?6.5 grams of Bubba Kush, 4.2 grams of Apollo 11, 3.8 grams of Fire 0.6, and a pair of comically large, 2.2 gram “hand-rolled cigarettes.” An arrest was made.
Game Womens Earl Mitchell Jersey
That first dim beam was not much, but it was a start, the beginning of the answer to a question that still haunts: What was Dwayne Bowe doing on Sunday night on West Platte Road, somewhere just outside Kansas City and somewhere just beyond our knowing.
Update: Ben Roethlisberger’s agent Ryan Tollner released a statement refuting Ian Rapoprt’s report via “Rep 1 Sports” Twitter account:
Alex Tanguay Authentic Jersey
“Ian Rapoport’s apparent sources seem to be guessing what Ben feels about the Steelers and being traded. This is completely wrong and inaccurate. Ben has always said he wants to play his entire career for the Steelers, and his roots are set firmly in Pittsburgh. He has a lot left in the tank & is 100% committed to winning more championships with the Steelers.”
Game Patrick Marleau Jersey Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger could potentially seek a trade this offseason, according to a report on Sunday from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
For the Texans, they thought things were going to be fine with Matt Schaub, and a third straight division title seemed more than feasible. Instead, Schaub had a terrible start to the year, and the team eventually named undrafted free agent Case Keenum as the starter. Though Keenum has lost all three of his starts, his numbers, including seven touchdowns and no interceptions, give hope for the future.
Here at SB Nation, five of six panelists expect Keenum to get his first-career win. Keenum is averaging 8.1 yards per attempt, which is far greater than the 6.7 yards per attempt of Schaub. The pick is also lopsided at CBS Sports, where seven of eight experts are going with the Texans.
Both experts at Yahoo Sports, plus the fans, expect Houston to win, and nearly everyone at ESPN agrees.
It should be a close game, but it appears that most people expect Keenum and the Texans to best Pryor and the Raiders.
Josh Jackson is among the most talented and athletic players in the country right now, and last week his Kansas Jayhawks faced off against Miles Bridges and the Michigan State Spartans. Early in the first half, Jackson attacked the rim for a dunk and the rim bit back. Kansas won, but the missed dunk had to sting.
The Kansas standout is not alone in this year’s Big Dance, though. In fact, getting rim checked has emerged as something of a trend in this year’s tournament.
Here’s Jordan Bell of Oregon:

Jonathan Freeny Mens Jersey But Earnhardt was just getting warmed up. When one of his Twitter followers suggested he become a Cowboys fan, he vowed, No chance, I’m betting on outliving this horseshit carousel.
Still, it looks unlikely that Smith-Schuster besting expectations pushed him into the first-round conversation with the top receivers of the draft class. He maintains he deserves to be, though.
What could be the difference that adds to his value is his dynamic ability as a punt returner.
It just puts the icing on the cake, Jackson said Wednesday. You can have me out there on three downs. On fourth down, just move me back there. I feel like you’re getting a bargain with me. Getting two birds with one stone.
Smith-Schuster also has doubts to overcome, despite 2,959 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns in three seasons with the Trojans. There are questions whether he has the burst and top-end speed to separate from NFL cornerbacks. Even his 4.54-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine was strong relative to the low expectations.
According to the police report, which was obtained by The Detroit News, the confrontation began with an argument over Lewis falling asleep with the lights on centered around who is responsible for paying the bills. Lewis admitted to police that he threw pillows at her pretty hard, though said he did not intend to harm her.
Miller asserts that Lewis pushed her to the ground by her throat. Lewis says that Miller grabbed onto his leg in an attempt to prevent him from leaving. Miller also said that Lewis stepped on her hair at one point, though told police she did not know how she ended up on the floor.
There were no visible injuries to Miller is neck, and she did ask for or receive medical attention. She did have a scratch on her nose and on her hand, according to the police report.
Schwartz, an offensive lineman for eight NFL seasons before retiring in February, believes Ramczyk and Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson will be the first two linemen drafted.
Scouts would say he has high upside because he only played one year of college ball, Schwartz said. You can spin it any way you want but he is a good player. He is physical and he is athletic.
Like any draft choice — especially one that produces so many offensive line prospects like Wisconsin — there will be NFL teams concerned that Ramczyk will turn out more like Gabe Carimi than Joe Thomas. First, Ramczyk enters the NFL with far less playing experience than others from major college programs after turning pro following his junior season. The fact that Ramcyzk will be 23 this upcoming season contributed to his decision to leave early.
ATLANTA — The struggling Atlanta Hawks got more bad news: All-Star forward Paul Millsap will miss at least two more games with a left knee injury, while guard Kent Bazemore is expected to miss at least a week with a bruised right knee.
Kenny Britt Youth Jersey Kevin Durant told the Warriors that he felt he was ready to rejoin the team on the road.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Saturday that he isn’t sure if Durant will sit on the bench for either game, noting that the All-Star has been behind closed doors getting treatment during the home games ?he has attended since he suffered the injuries.
Kids Craig Smith Jersey
Durant told the organization that he felt he was ready to rejoin the team on the road, and his request was granted.
When he suffered the original injury, the Warriors announced that Durant would be re-evaluated in a month’s time and were hopeful that he would be able to return to action before the playoffs.
Golden State is 5-5 without Durant. In recent years, teams have adopted stricter rest and recovery regimens for their high-usage players, as an increasing body of evidence shows that excessive wear and tear can contribute to injuries and diminish performance.
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich popularized the practice of holding players out some years ago. In 2012, the Spurs were fined $250,000 for sitting their star players for a nationally televised game in Miami.
The Arizona Wildcats cemented themselves as one of the teams to beat in the NCAA tournament with an impressive 100-82 victory over North Dakota on Thursday.
It¡¯s the third time in program history that Arizona has scored at least 100 points in an NCAA tournament game:
McCoy, the NFL’s leader in rushing yards, entered the game with a 5.1 yards per carry average but could muster only a 3.1-yard average against the Dallas defense. In his article, Kapadia breaks down several plays in which McCoy had open running lanes and blockers downfield but instead chose to reverse field and lost yardage.
Jiri Hudler Elite Jersey
“I just tried to make too many things happen,” McCoy admitted. “Certain plays, from running the ball to screens, different things like that. I felt that was probably my worst performance since my rookie year. But I’ll bounce back this week for sure. Just gotta trust in the scheme.”
He’ll get his chance to bounce back this Sunday against the New York Giants’ 21st-ranked rush defense.
Sean Miller¡¯s Wildcats, conventionally known for their strong pack-line defense, have emerged as an offensive superpower, and that should scare just about every other team in the tournament. With playmakers up and down the roster ¡ª every member of the team put points on the board against North Dakota ¡ª Arizona¡¯s offensive prowess is what has turned a perennial contender into a 2017 juggernaut.
Middle Tennessee then added Arkansas transfer JaCorey Williams, who averaged 17.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Those three players spearheaded a balanced team ¡ª the Blue Raiders ranked 54th in the country on offense and 49th on defense in Ken Pomeroy¡¯s pace- and opponent-adjusted calculations.

For the second time in three years, the Arizona Wildcats are the Pac-12 tournament champions. On Saturday night, the 2015 champs beat the 2016 champion Oregon Ducks to complete an impressive tournament run.
In a top-heavy conference with three loaded teams at the top, Arizona earned the tournament title by outlasting that third Pac-12 super team, UCLA, followed by Saturday’s win over the top-seeded Ducks.
Oregon took care of business on their end too, outlasting Cal to set up the title game.
The Pac-12 have three teams that are elite or close to it, another likely NCAA Tournament team after them, and maybe one more on the bubble. There’s real quality at the top, but the conference trails off quickly after its trio of top teams: Oregon, Arizona, and UCLA.
The Ravens will be Woodhead’s fourth team as a pro. He capped a storied college career at Chadron State with a pair of Harlon Hill awards — Division II’s equivalent of the Heisman — and held the honor of being the NCAA’s all-time leading rusher, but the 5’8 tailback couldn’t find a spot in the 2008 NFL Draft. Instead, he signed with the New York Jets, where he spent two-plus seasons but earned only 15 carries.
That served as enough of a tryout to impress Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. New York cut Woodhead in 2010, clearing the way for New England to add him to its roster that fall. The small-school standout made an immediate impact in Foxborough, averaging 5.6 yards per carry and emerging as a legitimate threat in the team’s passing attack.
