Staying in sight of Eagles the aim for Cowboys, Redskins

Through the decades, when the Cowboys and Redskins met, it often was for the division lead. On Sunday, the archrivals go at it for the 115th time. At stake: second place in the NFC East behind the high-flying Eagles.

While the Eagles host the winless 49ers already owning a 2 1/2-game edge in the division, the winner at FedEx Field at least can remain in sight of Philly.

That said, it’s been a rough last couple years for Rivers by his standards. He’s thrown 57 interceptions since 2014 — the most in that span, though Blake Bortles and his 56 picks might have something to say about that soon. Postseason success has also eluded Rivers, as he’s never made it to the Super Bowl. At 3-4, the Chargers don’t look like a Super Bowl contender (sorry, Will Brinson), but they’re alive in the playoff hunt thanks to the fact that there might not be any legitimately great teams in the NFL this year.

Philadelphia (6-5-1) also is searching for more consistency after an up-and-down start to the season. The Flyers are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss to the previously winless Arizona Coyotes, and they are 1-2-1 in their past four.

Youth Kevin Dodd Jersey Injuries to defensemen Shayne Gostisbehere and Andrew MacDonald have placed the Flyers in a difficult spot. Four of the Brendan Leipsic Jersey team’s seven active blue-liners are rookies.

I’ve played with a few of them as a partner (in the AHL), so the familiarity certainly makes it easier, said defenseman Will O’Neill, who joined the team on Tuesday.

Philadelphia has been forced to turn to its depth on offense, as well. Rookie forward Nolan Patrick has a head injury, and he did not make the road trip.

Chicago likely will turn to goaltender Corey Crawford for his 11th start of the season. The 32-year-old is 5-4-0 with a 2.12 goals-against average and a .935 save percentage in his first 10 contests.

What can Fultz, Sixers do about his broken shot and sore shoulder?

Editor’s note (Oct. 29): The piece has been Womens Ryan Callahan Jersey updated with the news that Fultz is out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated in three weeks due to shoulder soreness and muscle imbalance.

Are Markelle Fultz’s early struggles and shoulder issues indicative of a larger problem for 2017’s No. 1 pick? ESPN Insiders Mike Schmitz — who has scouted Fultz since 2015 — and Kevin Pelton discuss the point guard’s jumper, his play so far and what it might mean.

Cordrea Tankersley Authentic Jersey By comparison, things were relatively quiet in the ACC, as three ranked teams beat unranked opponents and then-No. 14 NC State fell at then-No. 9 Notre Dame.

Help us recap the best of Week 9 in the conference:

Stewart files counterclaim against insurance company: Tony Stewart’s attorney countered an insurance company’s claim that its policy does not cover Stewart in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. Brian Gwitt, Stewart’s New York-based attorney, filed the claim Tuesday with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York. Axis Insurance Company stated in court documents in September that it should not be held responsible for damages Stewart might have to pay the Ward family.

The family filed a lawsuit Aug. 7 against Stewart, seeking unspecified damages for the death of their 20-year-old son. Axis claimed in documents that clauses in its policy with Tony Stewart Racing precluded it from paying any damages. Stewart’s counterclaim states that various clauses show that Axis should be responsible for such damages.

Leak Claims Chelsea’s 2018-19 Home Kit Will Feature More Red

Chelsea fans may be in for a bit of a shock next season as details emerge that the color red could feature more prominently on next term’s home kit.
Men's Majestic Detroit Tigers #8 Justin Upton Authentic White 2016 Mother's Day Fashion Flex Base MLB Jersey
Womens Lawrence Timmons Jersey The rumor comes courtesy of Footy Headlines, who have a tendency to leak new kit details correctly months in advance of said strips being officially unveiled.

What type of tint can Chelsea fans expect? Something along the lines of the red saturation used in sponsors Yokohama Tires’ logo adorning the jersey apparently, but whether red will be present on the shirt and short themselves remains to be seen.

The rest of the socks should continue to incorporate white and blue into them, so Chelsea supporters won’t have to fear looking like rivals Arsenal or Manchester United too much.

Clearly the Eagles won’t bring in another back after giving the Dolphins a 2018 fourth-round draft pick for Ajayi, but it would be interesting to see if the Colts are willing to deal Gore, who is in the final year of a three-year deal, to a contender. The Indy Star Stefen Wisniewski Jersey did say at least two teams have asked about the 34-year-old.

I鈥檓 here with the Colts and whatever happens, I can鈥檛 control, Gore said Monday. I鈥檓 a Colt. I鈥檓 going to fight til the end.

Gore has 110 rushing attempts this season for 404 yards and two touchdowns this season for the 2-6 Colts.

1. A big part of the release of NaVorro Bowman, as I understand it, was the 49ers鈥?confidence in Reuben Foster as an every-down linebacker. Foster has even impressed with his diligence in rehabbing an ankle injury. The Alabama product had some off-field questions going into the draft, but as one source there explained it, We haven鈥檛 seen any of that. He鈥檚 a leader.

How blocking will affect matchups in fantasy football Week 8

The fantasy football world has lagged behind when it comes to effectively measuring the impact blocking has on production, so I devised a grading system that uses multiple advanced metrics to project how blocking matchups will impact performance in the upcoming week’s contests.

It’s usually not wise to hold a second defense on your roster, but you should absolutely go that route with the Jaguars on a bye this James Ihedigbo Womens Jersey week. The top-scoring D/ST by far this season, the Jaguars roughed up Jacoby Brissett for 10 sacks in Week 7. The Jaguars now have a league-high 33 sacks this season after totaling 33 all of last season. They also pace the NFL in forced fumbles (nine), interceptions (10) and tackles for loss (57). The Jaguars’ defensive emergence is hardly a surprise and, albeit with some regression to the mean, you should expect top-end production in the second half.

I’m always against that and I go out and do it, so 100 percent I messed up. It’s on me. I’m sorry for that and I’m leader and those guys look up to me and I stabbed them in the back, so for me I’m sorry about that. I’ll approach them individually one on one and just let them know I was a 100 percent dead-ass wrong.

Hilton said after the game that the O-line needed to take some pride and protect quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who was sacked 10 times.

It’s been an inconsistent year for Alshon Jeffery as well, especially considering how well Wentz and the Eagles’ offense is playing. But Jeffery is worth the price in daily, as well against a Niners squad that has given up a receiving score to a wide receiver in six of seven games this season and has allowed four receivers to reach 100 yards. I’d say on Sunday, Jeffery has a good shot at making it five. …

He provided us with the first butt spike

The slow-motion ripple in his ass makes the celebration. It’s kinda like those plays that look more impressive in slow motion than in real time.

I’m not sure if he planned for the ball to go straight back up like it did, but that’s also quite the risky proposition. If the football lands a little more forward, that’s a painful celebration.

Anyway, he should have to recreate that now for each touchdown. Do you know why I love Twitter? Because I am actually able to write the sentence Jaguars punter Brad Nortman got a lot of love this weekend for several excellent punts against the Jets and have empirical evidence that this is true. Twenty-five years ago, would I have been able to write something like that and find evidence for it? Of course not.

The release of the NFL Report Card also comes shortly after the announcement that Colin Kaepernick had broken his silence and was taking legal action against what he claims is collusion among NFL owners to prevent him from getting another job in the league because of his activism. I agree with many others that Addison Russell Jersey there is no doubt that Kaepernick deserves to be playing.

Elite Kids Patrick DiMarco Jersey On that September day we saw NFL players, coaches and owners kneeling and linking arms in a display of unity in response to President Trump’s comments about NFL players protesting the national anthem. Of course, players kneeling, raising their fists and linking arms is about more than defying the President’s comments, at its core it is about protesting social injustice and growing the movement started by Kaepernick.

Bowman is expected to visit the Raiders first, a team which has a lot of appeal.

Tyreke Evans Jersey It would allow him to stay in Northern California, and land on a team with a shot of making the playoffs. However, there are plenty of other parties who are interested according to Schefter.

Youth Andrew Billings Jersey The 49ers reportedly spoke to the Saints, Ravens, Browns and Panthers about trading Bowman — which means it’s a rich market. If he’s solely interested in joining a team pushing for a playoff run then the Panthers (4-2) or Ravens (3-2) make the most sense.

It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration—and love. Mrs. Goodell said Thursday afternoon in a written statement. As a former media member, I’m always bothered when the coverage doesn’t provide a complete and accurate picture of a story. I’m also a wife and a mom. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love—and I always will. I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!
Hey, we’ve all been there. This story would’ve been way more endearing if Goodell weren’t doing such trash things as the commissioner of the National Football League. BUT, if you focus on Jane Goodell for a second, you have to admit that what she’s doing is really the highest expression of love in our robotic, digital age.

I’m not joking. Forget: Do you think you want kids? The one question I will ask dates from now on is: Do you think you would fight battles in my Twitter mentions for me using a burner account devoted to defending my honor? WILL YOU BATTLE THE TROLLS FOR ME?

Buccaneers hold moment of silence as fans raise lights in tribute to Las Vegas shooting victims

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held a moment of silence prior to their game against the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

What she told the prosecutor’s office: In an interview with the intake unit at the prosecutor’s office — audio of which was obtained by SB Nation through the Columbus City Attorney’s office — she said that the abuse had happened before and she hadn’t reported it, other than the incident in Florida. She referred to Elliott as her ex-boyfriend right now and told the intake counselor she and Elliott had dated for about a year.

He has lost control and has yanked me into the wall, busted the side of my jaw, the alleged victim said. My face is swollen and a little bit bruised.

In the police report, there was no mention of Elliott choking her on this date, but there was in her interview. The woman told the intake counselor that when she asked why a girl was calling in the early-morning hours of July 17, between 3 and 5 a.m., Elliott called her a bitch and came over to my side, dragged me out of the bed. And then he threw me up against the door in his bedroom. Then he placed his right hand around my neck and started choking me.

Not only did the ball bounce into his butt, it went tip first. Wow.
Elite Phil Kessel USA Jersey
Elite Kids Kyle Okposo Jersey Columbus prosecutor Robert S. Tobias told USA Today in an email that he believed Elliott had been violent with his accuser, but didn’t think his office had the evidence to pursue charges:

I personally believe that there were a series of interactions between Mr. Elliott and (his accuser) where violence occurred, Tobias wrote, via USA Today. However, given the totality of the circumstances, I could not firmly conclude exactly what happened. Saying something happened versus having sufficient evidence to criminally charge someone are two completely different things.

We’ll see what they do this year.

Last month, ESPN President John Skipper tried to address ESPN’s social media policy through an internal memo that said, we have social media policies which require people to understand that social platforms are public and their comments on them will reflect on ESPN. At a minimum, comments should not be inflammatory or personal.
Game Yovani Gallardo Jersey
Skipper’s memo was in response to another Twitter controversy that involved Hill, who called President Trump a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.

ESPN opted not to suspend Hill after that tweet. At an industry conference days before Hill’s Cowboys tweet, Disney CEO Bob Iger said he was part of the decision not to suspend Hill the first time.

I felt that we needed to take into account what Jemele and other people at ESPN were feeling in this time, he said.
Game JaVale McGee Jersey
Facilitated by a tweet-happy president who has worked tirelessly to corrupt the meaning of Kaepernick’s gesture, our current state is not just affecting the personal freedoms of athletes challenging Trump’s orders of obligatory shows of patriotism. The personal freedoms of everyday people are being menaced, including right here at home.

A Woodland High School chemistry teacher last week was placed on administrative leave for taking a knee as The Star Spangled Banner played during a homecoming pep rally. While kneeling, Windy Pappas placed her right over her heart. In her left hand was a Black Lives Matter sign. A poster nearby her stated: It’s okay to disagree with any sign here.

As we’ve said repeatedly—and was also the case when Sage Steele hosted, too—ESPN devalues this show by not letting it host the majority of post-game airtime during the Conference Finals and NBA Finals.

Sat: The number of times the player missed a game.

Game Womens Allen Bailey Jersey
Players are not charged Stiff points for sitting out, nor does it impact their overall consistency rating (CR), but it hurts their overall start percentage (Start%).

Players must have at least a 20 percent start percentage (Start%) in either standard PPR or non-PPR scoring, or must rank among the top 20 quarterbacks, tight ends or kickers, top 50 running backs or wide receivers, or top 40 defensive linemen, linebackers or defensive backs, in terms of total fantasy points at their position from 2015-17, for inclusion in the chart. All defense/special teams are included, regardless of whether they met those minimums.

You want to score your first goal but you know it’s not going to be easy, the Michigan native said. I tried to keep it out of my mind. It was bound to come sooner or later.

I could feel myself getting teary-eyed, the normally stoic Gallant said Tuesday morning. And [the game] will be a lot tougher than that.

I went to a one of them and saw how quickly they did it and was really impressed with the quality, Durant told ESPN of Pieology, which has more than 140 franchises to date. I just felt like, given how fast our lives our these days, we don’t want to wait for our pizza anymore.

Authentic Greg Olsen Jersey Durant follows LeBron James into the space. James has an ownership and franchise stake in Blaze, another pizza brand that has adopted the assembly-line style made famous by Chipotle. Sources said James put less than $1 million into the franchise in 2012. It became the fastest-growing chain in history, and James’ piece is now at least $35 million, sources told ESPN.

This isn’t about me versus LeBron, Durant said. I think we do have different interests and we handle things differently, but the respect for each other is there. I do think we, as athletes, have realized the value of our stock these days, of the control that we have over what makes us valuable, including our social media accounts.

The NBA couldn’t have tweaked it this once, just for fun?

Still: This team isn’t ready to hit .500 without a lot of Embiid. If he doesn’t play enough, they fall short. It will take time for Fultz, Simmons and Embiid to learn how to split creative duties.

The schedule doesn’t help. Teams play 10 of their conference rivals four times apiece, and face the remaining four just three times. Philly’s three-timers: Chicago, Indiana, Orlando and Atlanta. Oh, come on! That probably knocks the Sixers playoff chances down a percentage point or two.

The triple matchups rotate along a five-year matrix set years ahead.

It feels like I’ve written a lot about Randle this season, but rarely do you see a triple-double threat like himself at the power forward position be as overlooked as Randle is this season. His ADP of 69.5 screams too low to me when you consider the improvement he made as a shooter last season. The concern with Randle — other than a lack of steals and blocks — is how much playing time he might have to share with Larry Nance Jr. and impressive rookie first-rounder Kyle Kuzma, who has looked terrific all preseason.

Smart didn’t think much of the text, but then he saw ESPN’s report that the Celtics and Cavaliers were finalizing a deal. Smart opened his Twitter feed and peered with one eye shut in hopes he wouldn’t see his name.
Elite Daniel Sorensen Jersey
It was one of those things where you had to kinda sit there and wait, Smart said. It was kind of like a horror movie. ‘Don’t go behind that door!’ You hear that music and it’s like, ‘OK, what’s going to happen next?’

The 23-year-old Smart, the No. 6 pick in the 2014 draft, marvels at now being the longest-tenured Celtic. It feels like an accomplishment to have simply survived Boston’s summer overhaul.
