Dallas (1-0) at Denver (1-0), 4:25 p.m. ET (FOX): I’m not 100 percent sure if Ezekiel Elliott will be playing in this game, but if I learned one thing while earning my free online law degree, it’s that I’m now completely qualified to answer legal questions like this. The NFL really doesn’t want Elliott to play, but since the court system moves slower than Rob Ryan at an all-you-can-eat vegetable buffet, I’m going to assume that Elliott will be on the field because nothing will be resolved this week.
Elliott very well could be shelved just as the Cowboys seemed to be getting their running game going, given his productive game against the Packers. Things become far more difficult for the Cowboys if they indeed lose Elliott and must patch things together at running back with Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris.

The Cowboys began the season with seemingly realistic Super Bowl aspirations but have a record of 2-3. They were beaten last Sunday night by a late Packers’ touchdown drive orchestrated by the quarterbacking wizardry of Aaron Rodgers, just as Rogers’s late-game magic in the same building ousted the Cowboys from the NFC playoffs in January.

They are still loaded without Brown, but losing the best receiver in football is a major problem. The defense has also slipped significantly since the loss of Ryan Shazier. Ben Roethlisberger, as former Steelers coach and current NFL on CBS analyst Bill Cowher told me on the Pick Six Podcast, appears to have taken the baton from the defense to try and finish things off for this team.
They need him to be the explosive, every down back he was to start the season. If they do that, they can hang with anyone. There are questions about the run defense, but between Justin Houston and Marcus Peters, that side of the ball still has playmakers.
Miami was aggressively scouting safeties a year ago but opted to stand pat at the position and re-sign T.J. McDonald to a longer deal. The Dolphins likely won’t pass on safety early in the 2018 draft if they can help it, and they can get an in-state, high-upside talent in James.

I didn’t know a drug dealer, I Womens Kyle Van Noy Jersey wasn’t a good criminal or anything, Leaf said. I went into people’s homes, friends I knew. I went to open houses in Montana, pretend I’d be interested in buying the home, and would go through medicine cabinets or cabinets in the kitchen. The shame of it was terrible, but once I had them in my hand, that obsession dissipated. This effect that opioids has on a person’s brain, it disappeared, and the ends justified the means.

The NFL continues to get sacked.
Monday Night Football’s Bucs-Panthers game saw ratings tumble 24 percent versus the same Week 5 game a year ago.
Over the first five weeks, ratings are down more than 10 percent.
While Fox, CBS, NBC and ESPN, which will pay roughly $40 billion through 2022 to air the games, are not yet panicking, the trend is raising some eyebrows.
Greenfield believes the TV universe is witnessing the erosion of the last great tentpole of TV 锟斤拷 live sports. Prime TV is getting crushed, now football, too. No linear TV is immune to fragmentation of ratings, he said.

What we don’t have is a proposal that changes our policy, we don’t have something that mandates anything. That’s clear. If that was the case, I doubt the head of the NFLPA would have put a joint statement out with us.

The statement released Wednesday said Goodell invited NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith to the meetings and that the agenda will be a continuation of how to make progress on the important social issues that players have vocalized.

The Browns struggled to generate offense after that drive though with Hogan under center. Kizer was able to return after being checked out and try to rally his team back in the fourth quarter. He had the Browns rolling in the right direction before throwing an interception in the end zone:
The Eagles and Chiefs took part in a low-scoring battle for much of Sunday’s game, but the Chiefs were finally able to break through thanks to Travis Kelce’s Michael Jordan impression:
Martavis Bryant did something Sunday that he hadn’t managed since Week 13 of the 2015 season: Haul in a regular-season touchdown reception. If you’re counting fingers and toes, that’s 651 days. Bryant missed the 2016 season because of a suspension, but came into 2017 as a key cog in what was expected to be one of the league’s best offenses.

Maybe you think he should be higher. Or, depending on what you expected from Kansas, off the list. But a multitude of early developments suggested Self’s magical run in the Big 12 — the Jayhawks have won 13 consecutive league crowns — would finally end. The loss to Washington State in Kansas City. Both Arizona State and Texas Tech won at the Phog, where Self had suffered just 10 losses during his tenure prior to this season. Five-star recruit Billy Preston, now headed overseas on a pro contract, never played a minute because of an NCAA Breno Giacomini Jersey investigation surrounding the vehicle he was driving during an on-campus accident. Self has limited frontcourt depth. But if you look at the Big 12 standings, you’ll see the Jayhawks at the top of an elite conference. Again.

Despite being sacked five times by New England’s defense, he completed 14 of 27 passes for 246 yards and two long touchdowns (also an 81-yarder to Antonio Freeman). He also rushed for a TD and threw a key two-point conversion pass.

What should not take over is Brady weariness. He has the chance to become the first player to win six Super Bowls. The Patriots have mounted unlikelier title runs — the first one, in 2001, when Brady was a novice, stands out — but this one, if it is completed Authentic Shon Coleman Jersey in two weeks in Minneapolis, will stand out for weirdness. It has been constructed entirely without Julian Edelman, around whom so much of the offense operates, and with a defense that had to be fixed on the fly after the first month. It had to reach the final stop without Brady’s most devastating weapon, Rob Gronkowski, who did not play in the second half Sunday after suffering a head injury on a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the first half. And a bum hand was on the wheel.
The Patriots essentially MacGyvered their way through the AFC title match.
As you no doubt are aware, the demonstrations by NFL players (which expanded outward more rapidly after Trump’s rebukes) originated with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He began to kneel during the national anthem at games as a way of drawing attention to incidents in which black Americans were targeted and sometimes killed by law enforcement officials. It’s not, as some have argued, a protest of the anthem itself. It’s a continuation of the argument that powers the Black Lives Matter movement: that there is a systemic problem in how police officers treat black suspects.

Womens Craig Conroy Jersey The Black Lives Matter movement originated in 2013, after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida. It surged to prominence after the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and Eric Garner on Staten Island, both at the hands of police in 2014.
However, he was involved in an incident in which he reportedly got into an altercation with a hospital worker. That led to him being sent home before he had interviewed with teams or worked out on the field.
The Eagles will be playing in their first Super Bowl since they lost to this year’s AFC champions, the New England Patriots, in 2005.
When Gruden first came to the team, Kingdon said, the Raiders were about as dysfunctional an organization as there was. He himself, who worked closely with Al Davis, said the 1997 season was the worst the team had been since he had arrived. He told Davis as much.

The AFN is the easiest way for soldiers to stay on top of American entertainment when they’re deployed outside the country, but it’s funded by the government, which is why it’s down right now.

Fantasy owners were stuck watching the inactives announcements in the afternoon game with three early-round picks all listed as questionable. Fortunately, all three are a go.
With one week left in the NFL regular season, 15 teams have either clinched playoff berths or still are in the hunt for a berth. The rest are playing out the string. Here’s how we stand.
Panthers: Carolina has clinched a playoff berth. The Panthers will clinch the NFC South with a win over the Falcons combined with a Saints loss/tie against the Bucs, or a tie combined with a Saints loss. Carolina will clinch a first-round bye with a win combined with a Saints loss/tie, Vikings loss and Rams loss/tie.
Falcons: Atlanta will clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Panthers, or a Seahawks loss to the Cardinals, or a tie combined with a Seahawks tie.
Seahawks: Seattle will clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Cardinals combined with a Falcons loss/tie against the Panthers, or a tie and a Falcons loss.
Rudolph heard quarterback Case Keenum break the huddle after saying, “Someone is going to get a chance.” Rudolph knew it wouldn’t be him when Saints cornerback P.J. Williams jumped him in the flat. Rudolph knew it had to be Jarius Wright or Diggs. He had the perfect point of view.
“As I turned and watched Stefon jump up and catch the ball my immediate reaction was, ‘Please don’t get hit or fall down inbounds,'” Rudolph told Sporting News on Tuesday. “Then he not only comes down with the ball but keeps his balance and has the wherewithal to turn and keep running. It was a pretty incredible play.”
Kelly’s 28-35 record in four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers means he will be remembered as a failed NFL coach. He takes his place alongside Lou Holtz, Steve Spurrier, Nick Saban and others among the highly successful college coaches who could not make it work on Sundays. But in truth, Kelly was a not-half-bad coach. Instead, he was a terrible NFL general manager.
Expecting Foles to play lights out in the playoffs just isn’t realistic. The Eagles can’t just count on him to carry the team. Philadelphia really needs to rely on Jay Ajayi and the run game. Jim Schwartz’s defense REALLY needs to continue to be a lockdown unit at home.
But Foles can’t play super conservative and scared. He needs to give this team a chance to make some big plays in the passing game. The hope is he recognizes the difference between aggressive and reckless.

Without Carson Wentz on the field, the greatest strength the Eagles have is their defensive line. Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, Tim Jernigan, Derek Barnett, Chris Long and Beau Allen comprise one of the deepest and most versatile defensive fronts in the NFL. The Eagles are stout against both the run and the pass. They have power rushers and they have speed rushers. They have players that operate only inside or only on the edge, and they have players that can move all over the formation.

Kraft will likely find little sympathy outside of New England, but there is a silver lining to Brady’s month off and Kraft touched on it in his frustration spurs anger remarks. Brady might be an exceptional human being, but the man can also hold a grudge. And he’ll no doubt use the four-game suspension to plot his revenge on the rest of the league by way of playing out of his mind when he returns against the Browns in Week 5.
The crucial victory left little doubt that the Jaguars are a legitimate contender, but it was also marred by an ugly, chaotic ending.
Jacksonville just needed to kneel out the clock on the win, but both attempts by Blake Bortles to take a knee ended with scuffles. Ultimately, when the dust cleared, two Seahawks players were ejected and several fines were dished out later in the week.
