Nelson Agholor Jersey juked Budda Baker Jersey into oblivion for Carson Wentz’s 4th passing TD

Carson Wentz has thrown a career-high four touchdowns against the Cardinals in only three quarters. More impressively, he’s thrown those scoring passes to four different targets.

The fourth, and arguably most impressive, came when Nelson Agholor shook rookie safety Budda Baker to his core with a spinning, juking dash that capped off a 72-yard reception in the end zone.

It’s great, Zimmer said. He’s worked extremely hard. Obviously not only him but the training staff, the doctors, [head strength and conditioning coach] Mark Uyeyama, all those guys have done a great job with him to try to rehab him and get him ready to practice. It’s a great deal for Teddy and we’ll take it one day at a time just like we did for the last 14 months.

Elite Mens Tyler Bozak Jersey Bridgewater injured his knee in practice on Aug. 30, 2016, and has been on the physically unable to perform list this season.

Bridgewater has been present in team meetings throughout the past 14 months. Zimmer said he is caught up on the playbook and receives the game script every week to run by himself.

He’ll be ready, Zimmer said. Teddy’s smart.

When Bridgewater practices, it opens a 21-day window for the Vikings to decide whether to promote him to the active roster or place him on injured reserve.

During his time with New Orleans, Brees hasn’t needed a great defense. He hasn’t even needed a decent one. When Sean Payton gives Brees a remotely competent defense, Brees delivers him to the postseason. I’ve mentioned this before, but the numbers are staggering. Check out the chart on the right.

The Saints have ranked in the top 25 of the league’s 32 defenses four times in 11 seasons with Brees. They’ve made the playoffs each time and won an average of 11.3 games along the way. Again, the Saints’ defense doesn’t even have to be good.

Marcus Mariota Jersey is yet another indirect reminder of the Browns’ QB cluelessness and listlessness.

The Broncos’ defense won’t get punctured every week the way the Giants surprisingly did. But their offense is always going to be hit-or-miss. Trevor Siemian got hurt in last week’s game, and now Emmanuel Sanders is injured. The Chargers have finally broken through on close games the last two weeks, but now they’re back at their home with their non-home-field advantage.

The Vikings are your new leaders in the NFC North, and thanks to their defense, they’ll beat on a mediocre team from the AFC North. The Ravens used to be new people eaters in purple, but Minnesota has done everything it can to reclaim its old name under Mike Zimmer. Sad to say for Baltimore, but Case Keenum, not Joe Flacco, is the best QB in this game.

The Browns are even more terrible on offensive than anybody could have imagined. Their defense is starting to wear down as a result and will get run over in the second half by DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.

Jameis Winston might be able to play through his injury, but he’s got to play much better and get a ton of help from Doug Martin, because the defense isn’t making any impact plays when it counts. They’re not a team breakout this year.

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are headlining the offense, but they need to get their running game going post-bye with rookie Joe MIxon to better support their defense.

Limited Mens Zaza Pachulia Jersey It’s been good to see Anthony Lynn’s team learn how to finish better.

We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys Jersey

Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event’s evolution and grow it even further, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality.

It marks the first time an NFL draft will held at a stadium and the first time it has been held in Texas.

Zack Wheeler Authentic Jersey Last year, the Philadelphia Museum of Art hosted the event, which earned rave reviews for the fun atmosphere and the backdrop of fans cheering as their teams made their selections.

Knowing Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, he will want to ensure the upcoming draft is bigger and better than past events.

The Bengals looked different in their two wins before their bye, on the watch of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. That shouldn’t be enough to overtake the Steelers in Heinz Field, except the Steelers have been on a rollercoaster the last two weeks, a wretched loss to the Jaguars followed by ending the Chiefs’ undefeated run. If the mood Ben Roethlisberger is in is positive, that should be good enough.

Sean McVay should be considered the favorite for coach of the year after revving up everything as Jeff Fisher’s rookie replacement and upgrade. He wasn’t too young for the job, and his team isn’t too young to make a jump to the playoffs.

The Saints are rediscovering a strong running game and a sack- and takeaway-oriented defense to try to prop up the championship window with Drew Brees. The scary thing is he hasn’t yet played his absolute best.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid says ‘gut’ told him to not attempt field goal

The Chiefs sustained their first loss of the season Sunday, to the Steelers, because of questionable choices and interesting clock management by coach Andy Reid.

However, one play that has stood out took place early in the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs were down 12-3 and Reid decided on fourth-and-2 at the Pittsburgh 4 to go for a touchdown, not a field goal.

It backfired. Instead of taking the three points and putting Kansas City within a score of the Steelers, the Chiefs got nothing.

But this is a team game, it’s the ultimate team game, and we need to be better. We need to be better with the 11 players we have, with the phase that we’re in, and ultimately that’s my responsibility.

Limited Jamaal Williams Jersey Brett Hundley is my quarterback, Joe Callahan is the backup, that is the direction we’re going, that is the focus and that’s where we are as a football team.

But wide receiver Jordy Nelson helped illustrate how difficult it will be for the Packers without Rodgers, underlining the importance of a player regarded as one of the best quarterbacks of all time.

Asked what Rodgers means to the Packers, Nelson replied: Everything. He’s our leader, he’s our quarterback. Great person on and off the field, great guy in the locker room, old guys, young guys, best quarterback in the game.

Alex Smith Kids Jersey Next up for Hundley and the Packers are the resurgent New Orleans Saints (3-2).

Lamar Miller Jersey and D’Onta Foreman Jersey at running back. Houston’s offensive line is playing better than expected

Patriots owner Robert Kraft is still intrigued by the prospect of buying a Premier League club but has concerns about the absence of a salary cap.

Kraft, 76, has overseen five Super Bowl wins since purchasing the Patriots in 1994 and also founded MLS side New England Revolution.

The billionaire came close to buying Liverpool in 2005 before the takeover by Fenway Sports Group, which also owns the MLB Red Sox.

The 23-year-old QB was injured in the Titans 57-14 loss to the Texans in Week 4. Mariota injured his hamstring and missed Tennessee’s matchup with the Dolphins in Week 5. The Titans lost 16-10 to move to 2-3 on the season.

Mariota’s 2016 season was ended by a broken leg, and with the injury this year, he has now missed games in each of his first three seasons.

However, when Mariota is on the field and healthy he looks like one of the quarterbacks of the future for the NFL. He has completed 61.4 percent of his passes with 48 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

Give Houston general manager Rick Smith and coach Bill O’Brien credit for identifying Watson as a game-changing talent and trading up in the draft to get him. He fits in nicely with a fine group of skill players, including DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller at wide receiver, plus Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman at running back. Houston’s offensive line is playing better than expected, with Watson’s ability to escape pressure certainly helping the cause.

We’re at the point now where it’s not unfair to label Chris Hogan Jersey the Patriots No. 1 receiver.

Game Womens Benjamin Watson Jersey Hogan was targeted a team-high 11 times in Week 5. And he has now out-targeted Brandin Cooks during three of the team’s past four games. The receivers both played 62 snaps in Week 2, but Hogan played more in the team’s four other games. Hogan has played 14 more snaps, run four more routes and has been targeted five more times than Cooks on the season. He only has seen 37 targets, but his five touchdowns have netted Hogan the fifth-most fantasy points among wide receivers. Cooks sits 13th, thanks to two scores and an average of 11.8 yards per target. Both should be locked into lineups as quality WR2 options moving forward.

The Bills gained only 36 yards in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Bengals after losing tight end Charles Clay to a knee injury. Clay could miss a month or longer with a torn meniscus and sprained MCL, which puts more pressure on an offense already missing top receiver Jordan Matthews (thumb injury) to find ways to move the ball. Tyrod Taylor was leaning on Clay because the quarterback’s wide receivers are on a historically poor statistical pace, averaging only 4.8 catches and 63.2 yards per game. Those would be the lowest averages for any team’s receivers since at least 2001. — Mike Rodak

You have to think Kyle Shanahan, son of a head coach, would have known this gig wasn’t easy. But, man. The 49ers have lost their past four games by a total of 11 points, the past two on the road in overtime. This was always going to be a work in progress, which is why Shanahan got a six-year contract as a first-time head coach. Obviously, the roster is personnel-deficient in many areas. But we’ve seen the offense come to life late in games against the Colts and Rams, so it’s fair to assume Shanahan’s first win is around the corner somewhere. No matter how painful things are in the meantime.

Steelers’ Martavis Bryant Jersey added to injury report, questionable vs. Jaguars

The Steelers may not have one of their best offensive players on the field Sunday against the Jaguars.

Wide receiver Martavis Bryant was added to the team’s injury report on Saturday due to an illness and is listed as questionable to play in Week 5, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.

Limited Youth Adam LaRoche Jersey Before the Steelers’ Week 4 game against the Ravens, Bryant was reportedly sick and missed two days of practice. He still played 48 of 76 snaps where he recorded three receptions for 48 yards.

Bryant missed all of 2016 due to a suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy and has logged just 10 carries for 183 yards and one touchdown in four games since his return in September.

While it remains unknown if Bryant will play Sunday, his absence could mean more time on the field for wide receiver Justin Hunter, who made his debut against the Ravens.

Brad Guzan Mens Jersey This year, there is a subgrouping of players at the end of each positional section, Players Off Game Status Injury Report. The probable tag no longer exists, so players who would have been listed as probable in previous years are now simply removed from the report. This means there will be players who appear in the practice injury reports during the week, but will not appear on the game status report on Friday since they are presumed active for game day. They are included in this blog so that fantasy owners can see where players who were on the practice injury report during the week have been upgraded in advance of the games.

Cam Newton Jersey laughs at female reporter following her question

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton laughed and made light of a female reporter who asked about one of his teammates, saying it was funny to hear a female ask the question.

Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked Newton during Wednesday’s news conference about wide receiver Devin Funchess embracing the physicality of routes and if Newton got enjoyment out of that.

Newton responded, It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes like — it’s funny.”

I don’t think it’s funny to be a female and talk about routes. I think it’s my job.

Coming off a 144-yard, two-touchdown effort, Bell looks ready to roll for the Steelers, who host the Jacksonville Jaguars and the league’s worst run defense Sunday at Heinz Field.

Our defense got stops, our offense was able to maintain possession of the ball because we took care of the ball, and that allowed us to continually snap it and produce the run total, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.
Authentic Kids Ersan Ilyasova Jersey
Bell, who averaged 105.7 rushing yards per game last season, got off to a slow start through three games. The 25-year-old rushed for just 32 yards in the season opener against Cleveland and followed with 87 yards against Minnesota and 61 against Chicago.
Authentic Kids Joe Pavelski Jersey
Not since his rookie season in 2013 had Bell failed to run for at least 100 yards in any of his first three games.

But he looked like his usual self against the Ravens.

Jordy Nelson Jersey expected to play vs. Bengals; Randall Cobb doubtful

The health of Packers wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb appears to be a good-news/bad-news situation heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Bengals.
Vlade Divac Authentic Jersey
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Nelson is “progressing,” and that he is expected to practice Saturday. Nelson left last week’s loss to the Falcons in the first quarter with a quad injury.
Limited Youth Anthony Munoz Jersey
Officially marked as questionable, Nelson looks on track to start Sunday.

However, fellow wide receiver Randall Cobb was one of seven Packers listed as doubtful to face the Bengals. Cobb was forced from last week’s game late with a shoulder injury.

Barring a miraculous turn in Cobb’s health, Nelson and Davante Adams will start Sunday with Geronimo Allison working the slot.

Jay Ajayi, RB, Miami Dolphins: If Newton wasn’t the week’s biggest matchups-related head-scratcher, Ajayi sure was. Facing a Jets defense that allowed 72.1 PPR fantasy points to opposing running backs in the season’s first two weeks, fourth most in the league, Ajayi scored just 4.5 PPR and 2.5 non-PPR fantasy points on Sunday, his fewest in either format in any of his 14 career NFL starts.

His 11 carries can be explained by the Dolphins playing a large chunk of the game from behind, which deflated any chance at his putting forth anything close to the 28 he had in Week 2, but that doesn’t excuse his awful 1.4 yards-per-carry average in the game. Perhaps the knee injury that had him listed as questionable for the game contributed, and the hit below the belt he took in the first quarter probably didn’t help, but Ajayi’s low score probably cost a lot of matchups for the 96.1 percent of ESPN managers who started him.

Who is Kenny Golladay Jersey, the Lions’ latest breakout wide receiver?

Matthew Stafford got a handful of presents this offseason. The first, and most notable, was a contract extension that made him the highest-paid player in league history. The second was a third-round draft pick who cut his teeth on Tuesday nights playing in the Mid-American Conference.

Game Kids Chris Harris Jr Jersey After catching the ball, Hayward fell to the ground as Parker nearly made his way into the end zone. The Dolphins only three points out of the play, despite being inside the 5-yard line.

The Broncos’ defense just stomped on the Cowboys’ offense on Sunday. The Broncos’ 42-17 win was fueled by their defensive efforts, but the best play was Talib’s pick-six that went for 102 yards.

You may not have noticed, but Talib is kinda good at this type of thing:

Kenny Golladay became one of the league’s hottest rookies after an electric, four-catch, two-touchdown debut for the Lions in their Week 1 win over the Cardinals. His performance was the continuation of an impressive offseason that painted him as a Day 2 steal for the NFC North standby. While his numbers were decent, the way he found the end zone was what set him apart.

Youth Sam Bradford Jersey In the opening game, Fournette shows great ball carrier vision, catching ability, skill to pick up the blitz and (most importantly) yards after initial contact. Even though Week 2 was a struggle for him, this is obviously a three down back that the Jaguars need in order make a run for the playoffs.

I expect Fournette to get the top number of carries in the league and look forward to seeing him get better as the season goes on.
