the Washington quarterback didn’t play poorly, but man he just can’t get a win on a Monday

Game Jaromir Jagr Jersey Redskins 17, Eagles 31. Eagles are not letting up. If you didn’t think Joe Morgan Youth jersey Wentz was the real deal before, well now you have no excuses. He completes a 10-yard pass to Agholor to give the Eagles a 14-point lead again. His 17-yard run on 3rd and 8 took all of the momentum away from Washington. Wentz has already rushed for more yards this season than he did all last year.

No, the Washington quarterback didn’t play poorly, but man he just can’t get a win on a Monday. He’s now 0-6 as a starter on Monday Night Football after losing to the Eagles.

No active quarterback has a longer losing streak on that day of the week.

But really, it’s hard to pin blame on Cousins when he completed 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. That’s often enough to win, but wasn’t quite as strong as the night Wentz put together, and so again he comes up short.

The Texans were leading 7-0 after Watson hit Will Fuller with a 59-yard pass for a score on the Texans鈥?first possession. Thomas got beat on the Fuller touchdown, but he made up for it with this play.

8. I think I applaud the filing of the Colin Kaepernick collusion case, though I鈥檓 skeptical attorney Mark Geragos will find any evidence to prove that multiple NFL owners, or the league office, colluded to deny Kaepernick employment. This may not be the best thing to get Kaepernick on an NFL roster (the dreaded distraction that so many teams quake about would be the result of signing him now), but the more noise that鈥檚 made about Kaepernick not being given a chance to play the better.

9. I think there鈥檚 an overlooked story you should know about it. It happened last week at a small-college football game in upstate New York, St. Lawrence at Union.

NFL protests 2017: What’s happening during Week 7?

The Jets, who are five-point underdogs as of Wednesday evening, will be playing their first game this season against an NFC opponent. They are coming off two straight losses to division rivals after holding a 14-point lead in each.

They led 28-14 in Miami this past Sunday going into the fourth quarter, but the Dolphins scored 17 unanswered points to win. Two weeks ago, the Dolphins were down 17-0 in Atlanta before scoring 20 unanswered points in the second half to stun the Falcons.

“When you look at the film, you don’t see them slumping,” Bowles said about the Falcons. “They make a mistake here and there, but they definitely move the football. … We have our work cut out for us.”

The challenge went the Cincinnati Bengals’ way, the Steelers were ruled short on a fourth-down play, and it was a turnover on downs.

But what’s really important is that Big Ben gave us this glorious GIF that is destined to become a meme.

It can be used for just about anything:

For all the fantasy football enthusiasts out there disappointed when a certain player doesn’t touch the football enough, just imagine how the player himself feels.

Bengals running back Joe Mixon was upset after Sunday’s 29-14 loss to the Steelers because he wanted more second-half carries. In fairness, Mixon had a legitimate gripe after not getting a single carry in the second half.blue_jays_048_193a5e481183b2e6-180x180

Falcons OC Steve Sarkisian is calling plays from the booth. Is the fog a factor?

The fog is thick in Gillette Stadium, and it doesn’t seem to be a problem for the Patriots. The Falcons, however, have been unable to get into the end zone. It may have something to do with the fact that offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian is calling plays from the booth.

Mitchell Trubisky has completed half of his 48 pass attempts in three appearances and has only two touchdowns to Aaron Ripkowski Jersey show. He’s 30th among quarterbacks in fantasy points during the span and obviously well off the fantasy radar. Jordan Howard is the only must-start in fantasy in this offense.

But a team would have to pick up the remaining three seasons of Glenn’s deal (2018-20) at about $30 million, so the cheaper option would be Henderson. He started 26 games for the Bills from 2014-15 before surgery for Crohn’s disease and two NFL substance-abuse suspensions derailed his career and left him without a role on the current team. — Mike Rodak

Peters had his right leg placed in an air cast and was carted off the field after getting injured on the second play from scrimmage. Peters was blocking Washington linebacker Ryan Anderson when Redskins defensive tackle Ziggy Hood fell into the tackle’s planted right leg.

Peters has been selected to nine Pro Bowls despite going undrafted out of Arkansas in 2004.

Hicks went down on the Eagles’ second defensive play with what was initially described as a foot injury. The 25-year-old had 28 tackles this season.

The Saints were up 45-10 on the Lions midway through the third quarter.

Authentic Brandon Carlo Jersey A Kenny Vaccaro fumble recovery for a touchdown got the Saints on the scoreboard with their first touchdown of the game, and they didn’t look back.

However, the Lions would make a push. They scored 28 unanswered points, starting in the third quarter. Stafford threw a pair of 22-yard touchdown passes to Jones and Darren Fells and then this 74-yard punt return for a touchdown by Jamal Agnew.

Both the Colemans, Womens Tommy Joseph Jersey Kindred, and Peppers are starters. Kessler and Kizer have been benched, Payton is out of the league. The rest are situational players at best. It’s not quite the opposite of the Hershel Walker trade, but it’s not too far off. The Browns got a mud farm and a reverse mortgage, the Eagles and Texans got the future. The Browns process has always been broken. They visit Watson and the Texans on Sunday to further drive home the point.

Detroit looked great to start the season, but a lot of that had to do with its +9 turnover margin and proclivity for picks. Unfortunately, turnovers at that pace aren’t sustainable from week to week. The Panthers found it all too easy to move the ball through the air last week, allowing 334 yards and three passing touchdowns, in a 24-27 Lions loss. But even then the Lions kept it close.

The panel is evenly divided. Four picks for the Lions. Four picks for the Saints. The computer gives the Saints a slight edge, but I’m just not ready to hand over such weighty decisions to the machines.

But Watson has plenty left to prove. The Titans gave up more than 400 yards to the shaky Seahawks offense a week before getting wrecked by the Texans. And Watson’s other good game came against a Patriots defense that has been awful to begin the year.

EYE-SYNC uses eye tracking to evaluate for ocular motor impairments and vestibular balance dysfunction, two common components of concussion injury. It can be done in 60 seconds, and helps medical professionals determine whether an athlete suspected of suffering a concussion should or shouldn’t return to play. It does not diagnose concussions; it helps to identify impairments associated with brain injury and aid in making a more informed medical decision.

Fleener, a former Stanford tight end in his sixth NFL season, said anything that helps take the guesswork out of that decision is a step forward for both athletes and medical professionals.

I am excited to work with SyncThink because I know firsthand the challenges they are facing and working to solve, Fleener said.

The 19-year-old Smith, the ninth overall pick and Dallas’ most important draft choice since Nowitzki 19 years ago, wasn’t the only first-round rookie to play well. Atlanta’s John Collins, the 19th pick, scored 14 points .

Terence Garvin Mens Jersey Smith asked out of the game and limped through the tunnel in the second quarter after landing awkwardly on his left leg when he was fouled on a dunk. He returned later in the quarter, and said after the game it was just a quick breather after a hard collision.

Mavericks: Sacramento at home Friday night in a 20-20 matchup: Vince Carter, Nowitzki’s former teammate, is also in his 20th season.

The Cardinals’ women’s basketball team reached the NCAA championship game that same season and has remained a perennial NCAA Tournament contender. Both programs play in a 22,000-seat downtown arena that opened in 2010.

Lamar Jackson became Louisville’s first Heisman Trophy winner last year when the Cardinals flirted with a berth in the college football playoff. The Cardinals in 1998 began playing in Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, which is undergoing its second expansion from its original 42,000-seat capacity.

Eagles vs. Panthers live stream: How to watch ‘Thursday Night Football’ online

Coming off a home win last weekend, the Philadelphia Eagles hit the road in Week 6 to take on the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. Both teams sit at 4-1 on the season, and will be subjected to the Color Rush treatment on Thursday Night Football when they play at 8:25 p.m. ET on NFL Network/CBS (live stream).

Hundley played college football at UCLA, where he completed over 67 percent of his passes for 9,966 yards with 75 touchdowns against 25 picks. Depending on the severity of Rodgers’ injury, they’ll hope that Hundley can bring that same magic.

What does this mean for Rodgers? Rodgers came into the game completing nearly 67 percent of his passes, with 1,367 yards, 13 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Last week, Rodgers led one of his signature comeback drives against the Cowboys.

Since he became the Packers’ starting quarterback, he’s largely avoided any serious injuries. Except for the 2013 season, Rodgers has played in at least 15 games each season since 2008. In that 2013 season, he broke the same collarbone that he broke on Sunday.

Sunday’s total is set at 52 points. The OVER is 14-6 in the last 20 games between Green Bay and Dallas.

The Cowboys and the Packers entered the 2017 season as two of the favorites to win the NFC. Green Bay has looked the part of a contender thus far, while Dallas could use a win like this one to get its season on track.

The NFL agrees Elliott’s accuser lied to police: The NFL’s investigators interviewed witnesses about the fight outside The Social Room. They confirmed the friend’s statement, that Elliott’s alleged victim and the other woman did not punch each other.


Dolphins show us why you should always play until the whistle

Elite Mens Teppo Numminen Jersey The first touchdown in the Titans-Dolphins game was a weird one.

What she told the NFL: The Dallas Morning News obtained transcripts of the alleged victim’s interviews with Kia Roberts, the NFL’s director of investigations. During her interview, Elliott’s accuser said that the day before she filed a police report in Florida, an argument between the two began after she got upset about Elliott whispering about another woman to a friend she called a marketing agent who was into drugs (page 20 and page 31). She said Elliott shoved her against the wall multiple times and pinned her, leaving bruises and thumbprints on her arms.

In an interview from September 2016, she told Roberts that Elliott stopped when he realizes what he’s doing, like every other time. And that’s when I said he said, ‘just come to bed and lay down with me.’

Game Ronde Barber Jersey We are not going to see a shootout between Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, but that still should be one of the most-used games for fantasy purposes this week. We’ve also found a lot of potential in Minnesota’s matchup with Baltimore, and the Titans are the latest offense to take a crack at the winless Browns.

She confirmed her early version of events, when she said another woman attacked her friend as they were leaving. She said no punches were thrown.

The friend said that when Elliott’s accuser approached Elliott and the woman driving his car, the two went around her and into the place he was staying. That’s when she called the police.

The Steelers turn in a dominant first half and carry a 9-point advantage into the locker room.

James McCann Elite Jersey The Ravens shouldn’t consider themselves out of the woods yet, even after whipping the Raiders in Oakland, or even with the Bears coming to town. The big Mitchell Trubisky change only spotlighted how few offensive threats the Bears have. They don’t have anyone the Ravens can’t handle — which only means that the wildly inconsistent, vulnerable-in-spots Ravens had better eat while the eating’s good.

It will be fun to see Browns first-rounder Myles Garrett trying to chase down Texans first-rounder Deshaun Watson. But unfortunately, beyond some good Browns run-stoppers, Garrett has limited help on his side. Watson will buy time with his feet and hit more big plays to his wide receivers and tight ends to make up for Lamar Miller being slowed down. Meanwhile, DeShone Kizer is left wondering what if.

Kansas City’s offense registered just one first down and six total yards in the half, while holding the ball for 8:19. Pittsburgh running back Le’Veon Bell has already tallied 99 yards on the ground as well as a touchdown.

Field goal. Aldrick Rosas made a 40-yard field goal to put the icing on the cake that was an impressive Giants win. 23-10, Giants

Touchdown. Trevor Siemian waited too long to make his best throw of the game. He managed to fit his pass into double coverage and into the hands of Jeff Heuerman for a 13-yard touchdown pass, which cut New York’s lead to 10. The score capped a seven-play, 58-yard drive. 20-10, Giants

Immediately after Hayward went down, announcer Kevin Harlan knew it was bad. Said Harlan: Oh my goodness, Hayward came down so hard, Hayward broke his leg, Hayward has broken his leg, Hayward has broken his leg. Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. And that is how quickly a season can change.

So it was no surprise for him to find the net at the next level of hockey.

The consistency ratings weigh both how consistent and how start-worthy players have been in ESPN leagues in 2017.
Start%: The player’s start percentage, which shows how often he earned your start in an ESPN standard PPR (points per reception) league. This is his number of Starts — those defined below — divided by his number of scheduled team games.
Authentic Kids Brian Dawkins Jersey
CR: The player’s consistency rating, which is calculated as his weekly standard deviation divided by his PPR fantasy points per game average. This is meant to identify the players who were most consistently close to their weekly averages. The lower the number, the more consistent the player. Again, lower numbers are better.

And tallying his first against a Vezina Trophy winner like Carey Price made it that much better.

You also can add the $4.8 million option for Ntilikina, and the $1.6 million team options for Damyean Dotson and Willy Hernangomez. Include those and the total, including a Porzingis extension, rises to $85 million, which is $23 million below the expected cap. But the Knicks also own their 2019 first-round draft pick, so for the purposes of this exercise, let’s add in $3.5 million for that player’s 2019-20 salary.

That would leave the Knicks with $19.5 million in cap space (not including cap holds for empty roster spots).

The unknowns for the 2019 summer are Ron Baker’s qualifying offer ($5.7 million) and Lance Thomas’ $7.5 million non-guaranteed contract. Thomas’ contract would be guaranteed at $1 million if he is not waived by June 30, 2019. If both of those numbers remain on the Knicks’ books, then the Knicks’ cap space falls to just $3.3 million (including a Porzingis extension).

Jokic’s playmaking presents a similar challenge.

The story is murkier when one of them rests, and Washington was famously a disaster when they sat together — even with Markieff Morris propping up reserve units. Scott Brooks could stagger his stars more, and the Wiz are confident they’ve beefed up their bench with Jodie Meeks, Mike Scott, Tim Frazier, and a full season of Ian Mahinmi. The jury is, umm, out on that one.

The Wizards lazed through most of the season — especially the end of it — on defense. They dialed it up a little in the playoffs, but they should be better. They have not accomplished enough to be entitled. To reach the next level — the level they are constantly yapping about — they have to develop good habits now.

They may also be due some good luck: Wiz opponents shot 41.8 percent on open 3s, the highest mark in the league.

Seven-footers simply aren’t supposed to thread needles and facilitate offense to the degree he does. Maybe you’ve heard this before, but it bears repeating: Since Jokic became the starting center in mid-December of last season, Denver — not Golden State — led the NBA in offensive efficiency.

The Warriors didn’t become “The Warriors” until Curry transformed into a transcendent talent, a metamorphosis that began to take shape in 2012-13, gained momentum in 2013-14 and became reality in 2014-15. He’s a bona fide superstar and a face of the NBA.

Jokic is three years younger and already ahead of where Curry was entering 2013-14.tigers_015-115x115
