One of those teams are the Detroit Lions, who signed McCown as a free agent in 2006 and after his rookie deal with the Cardinals had expired.McCowns success in Detroit was rather limited: as the backup quarterback behind Jon Kitna, he appeared in only two games during his lone season with the club. But while McCown did not attempt a single pass, he did show up on the stat sheet with the following numbers:McCown caught three passes over the course of his NFL career, and two of them came in the same year. In fact, they came in the same game: a week thirteen regular season contest against the New England Patriots. As usual White Eric Rowe Jerseys , Kitna started and finished the game as the Lions quarterback. The team of first-year head coach Rod Marinelli and veteran offensive coordinator Mike Martz had a trick up its collective sleeve regarding its second-string passer, however.In the third quarter, Josh McCown entered the contest at wide receiver just his second in-game appearance of the season. At first, he did not do much. Seven snaps after first stepping onto the field, however, Kitna found him for an 8-yard gain on a 2nd and 10. The catch would remain the longest of McCowns career (and in fact his first to go for positive yardage following a -5-yard reception when still with the Cardinals). Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel was credited with the tackle.Two plays after the reception, the Lions tied the game at 13. They eventually took an eight point lead thanks to two field goals and a safety, but the Patriots who saw Corey Dillon rush for three touchdowns that day tied the game in the fourth quarter. New Englands deficit, however, could have been even bigger had McCown not gotten flagged for offensive pass interference on what would have been a 31-yard catch late in the third period.The Patriots eventually went up 28-21 with under three minutes left in the game. Once more Eric Rowe Jerseys 2019 , backup quarterback McCown was inserted into the lineup. And once more, he delivered: on the second play of a potentially game-tying drive, he caught a 7-yard pass. McCown actually eluded Vrabel to gain more yards before being brought down by Tedy Bruschi and James Sanders. The catch would remain the last of McCowns career.On the very next play after his 7-yard reception, Kitna threw an interception to Mike Vrabel. For Kitna, McCown and the Lions it was the final play of their tenth loss of what would eventually turn out to be a 3-13 season. For Vrabel, on the other hand, it was the perfect way to cap an outstanding performance: he already had a fumble recovery, another pick, and eight tackles on his résumé before catching the game-clincher.The game also was a noteworthy one for McCown: he finished with the best receiving numbers of his career. Yes, he was a quarterback. His usage that day White LaAdrian Waddle Jerseys , however, showed that he was much more than that he was a guy willing to do what it took to help his team succeed. In this sense, Josh McCown would also have fit in well in New England. He never got the chance, but his game against the club in 2006 will live forever.Relive Josh McCowns two-reception performance against New England here (for some reason, though, the three plays are in the wrong order):

     hes my size.The Chiefs love the fact t

    Its time Juan Thornhill Jersey Cheap , and anyone and everyone who covers the NFL is trying to produce a Triple Lindy regarding Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.The better approach is to focus on the facts. And here they are, as of right now.The Chiefs currently are expected to stand pat at quarterback, making Matt Moore the starter and promoting Kyle Shurmur (son of Giants coach Pat Shurmur) from the practice squad for next Sunday nights game against the Packers. Kyle Shurmur gets the nod as opposed to a free agent because Shurmur knows the system.Then theres Chad Henne. Hes eligible to return after Week Eight. So it could be Moore versus the Packers and then Moore or Henne against the Vikings.As to the rampant (and in some corners of the media confusing and internally contradictory) efforts to cobble a timetable for Mahomes return, a source with knowledge of the situation said that its all speculation. Mahomes return ultimately hinges on the natural healing process, rehab efforts, and subsequent MRI examinations.The source emphasizd that any effort to state a clear timeline is good for clicks and retweets, but ultimately unreliable. The generic timeline for the injury suffered by Mahomes is 3-6 weeks. No one will know when Mahomes can return until more time passes. Anyone who is stating anything at this point regarding a specific return date is just guessing.Still, the Chiefs may need to be ready to make a move, if the timeline ends up being at the high end of the range, if theres an unexpected setback, and/or if Moore and/or Henne perform poorly. The problem is that the trade window closes in nine days.So if theres going to be a dramatic change in the intended approach that entails pursuing someone like Marcus Mariota, it needs to happen sooner than later. Otherwise Juan Thornhill Jersey Womens , the the only options will be Moore, Henne, Shurmur, and any free agents that are or may become available. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Every team in the NFL passed on Darwin Thompson multiple times during the draft, leaving the soft-spoken running back waiting for a phone call when the Chiefs were on the clock in the sixth round.General manager Brett Veach finally dialed his number.Its worked out well for both of them.Thompson was taken by a team willing to overlook his stature (5-foot-8) and alma mater (Utah State) by giving him a chance. The Chiefs were able to add some depth at running back, a position of significant need, without using a higher draft selection on a more proven commodity.Now, the Oklahoma native is making a push up the depth chart, nipping at the heels of Carlos Hyde and Darrell Williams for the backup job behind incumbent starter Damien Williams.Ill tell you what, hes doing a nice job, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. Hes able to see the blitz Harrison Butker Jersey , which is a big thing for young guys. He has good vision in the run game. Then, he has a pretty good understanding of the pass game. Hes a really focused kid. Hes kind of a non-nonsense guy. He wants to do it right, is real focused, studies a lot. I like the way hes made up that way.Reid is understandably interested in the way Thompson handles everything but carrying the ball. A successful running back in his offense has to protect quarterback Patrick Mahomes, a major question mark for the undersized Thompson, and catch passes in what has become a wide-open West Coast system.Then theres the film room, often one of the biggest stumbling blocks from college to the NFL.You just want to see how they handle the stress of preparing, playing and performing every day, Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. Im not shocked and surprised. We knew what we saw on tape. The kid did one heck of a job. Now, the kid still needs to continue to work on some things.The part that needs the least work? Running the ball.Thompson, whose uncle David Thompson played for the Rams from 1997-99, starred in junior college at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M before transferring to Utah State. He wound up running for 1 Reggie Ragland Jersey ,044 yards with 14 touchdowns last season, averaging a stunning 6.8 yards per carry in the Mountain West.He did it all with an infectious smile, too.Man, D-Train, thats my dog. Hes a quiet assassin, thats what I call him, Damien Williams said. Very quiet but when he cuts and gets up field, its like hes my size.The Chiefs love the fact that Thompson gives them another unique ball-carrier in the backfield, a complement to the do-it-all Damien Williams and power backs in Hyde and Darrel Williams.Darwin you would think is a smaller, jitterbug-type of guy, Chiefs running backs coach Deland McCullough said, but hes strong and packs a punch. He can protect. He can run routes. He can run the ball. I feel really happy with what we have there.Damien Williams missed some time earlier in camp with a hamstring injury Cameron Erving Jersey , giving Thompson and the rest of the backups more run with the first-team offense. And not only did Thompson make the most of the reps, he carried that momentum in the Chiefs first couple of preseason games.He carried five times for 22 yards against Cincinnati, then had four carries for 30 yards last week in Pittsburgh showing a couple of nifty moves and some unexpected breakaway speed.This is everything I worked for, Thompson said. Nothing before this really matters now, this is just the beginning. This is the beginning of the journey. Its a new identity I can create. They are only going to remember me now from what I did in the NFL, not so much of what I did in college.I only played one year of D-I football, Thompson added. My name before this really didnt mean anything. I get the chance to prove myself and my worth at this level.NOTES: WR Marcus Kemp (torn ACL) was placed on injured reserve, while WR Davon Grayson and OL Abdul Beecham were released. The Chiefs signed WR DeAnthony Thomas, WR Jalen Tolliver and OL Jeff Allen. DE Breeland Speaks (knee), TE Deon Yelder (ankle) and WR Tyreek Hill (personal reasons) were absent as the Chiefs resumed camp at their practice facility Tuesday. SS Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder) was a partial participant in the steamy late-morning workout.

     game, McVay said Gurley was limited by an ankle in

    Just like everybody fortunate enough to be at the Coliseum on Monday night http://www.theramslockerroom.com/aut...ong-suh-jersey , Sean McVay was still buzzing when he left the building after the Los Angeles Rams' epic victory over Kansas City.When he finally reached his suburban home, the coach wasn't ready to lose that feeling. Instead, McVay and some friends kicked off the Rams' bye week by watching highlights of Los Angeles' 54-51 win deep into the night."I was pretty wired, man," McVay said Tuesday afternoon, about 21 hours after kickoff. "I would say right now is about the first time I'm starting to wind down and to be able to take a nap hopefully here soon."McVay and the Rams have absolutely earned their sleep.Los Angeles (10-1) is this season's first team to reach double digits in victories after holding off the Chiefs in a game that featured so many eye-popping digits: a 14-touchdown, 105-point, 1,001-yard masterpiece of pure entertainment.The third highest-scoring game in league history was the latest peak in the Rams' two-year transformation under McVay, whose staff has put this long-downtrodden franchise in position to clinch its first back-to-back division titles since the 1970s as soon as this weekend if Carolina beats Seattle.The win over Kansas City also was the culmination of two difficult weeks for the organization and its city.Players, coaches and team employees were forced from their homes by wildfires two weeks ago while many were still reeling from a mass shooting near their training complex in Thousand Oaks. The Rams then spent the previous week on the road in Colorado Springs to train for the high altitudes of Mexico City 鈥?only to have the Monday night game moved back home to LA on six days' notice."I think the players did an outstanding job of handling what seems like two weeks that was about two years' worth of things that they had to go through John Franklin-Myers Jersey ," McVay said. "All they did was just handle it like pros and do everything the right way that makes you appreciative of just being able to work with people like this."The final snap against Kansas City felt like closure to the players who persevered through this two-week stretch. McVay and the Rams now get a holiday week to contemplate what they've accomplished and how far they've still got to go.Because for all their success, McVay knows the Rams have ample room for improvement.McVay and his staff will use part of their bye week to study this triumph over the Chiefs, likely turning a critical eye on ways to help a defense that relied on big plays to survive this thriller. Kansas City outgained Los Angeles 546-455 with six touchdown passes by Patrick Mahomes.The Rams are desperately looking forward to the probable post-bye return of standout cornerback Aqib Talib. They were also happy to get contributions from surprising defensive sources in an otherwise offense-dominated night.Samson Ebukam, the Rams' unsung second-year outside linebacker, might have been the most important player on the field against the Chiefs. Ebukam returned a fumble forced by Aaron Donald for a touchdown, made a preposterous one-armed interception and returned it for another TD, and finally pressured Mahomes just enough to impede his throwing motion on a pass subsequently intercepted by Rams teammate Marcus Peters with 1:18 left."It's crazy we had five takeaways, just to see they still put up 51 points," Rams receiver Robert Woods said. "We tried to eliminate the big plays, but we know they have some talented players. At the end of the day, we sealed them off."The Rams can also use their time off to get healthy http://www.theramslockerroom.com/aut...-peters-jersey , which is always a good thing at this time of year.Los Angeles dropped those 54 points on Kansas City even with mild contributions from NFL rushing leader Todd Gurley, whose 13-game touchdown streak ended while he made just 12 carries for 54 yards and caught three passes for 39 yards.Confirming what many suspected during the game, McVay said Gurley was limited by an ankle injury after "getting rolled up on" earlier in the game.McVay doesn't believe it will be a long-term problem, and he said Gurley's light action in the second half was mostly due to the Chiefs' schemes 鈥?particularly a set with 11 men in the box late in the game, leading to McVay's decision to call passing plays in a last-minute attempt to get a game-clinching first down."There were a lot of instances where they were playing some defensive structures where they were basically daring you to throw it," McVay said. "That's a result of the respect they have for Todd and our running game." For a team that has searched for vague criticism just so they can use it for motivation, youd expect the Patriots to be sensitive about offering the same fodder to others.So safety Patrick Chung did the predictable backstroke, sort of, when asked about his pep rally declaration about the Rams that聽鈥渨e鈥檙e going to go [down] there聽and kick their聽ass, baby.鈥漋ia Mike DiGiovanna of the , Chung said he was just playing to the crowd at the send-off Womens Aqib Talib Jersey , and meant no offense to an obviously worthy opponent.鈥淵ou guys don鈥檛 know me,鈥?he said. 鈥淚鈥檓 a clown. You guys want to write whatever you want to write. That鈥檚 OK. Obviously, you guys have nothing else to write about. . . .鈥淲e鈥檙e confident. They鈥檙e confident, I鈥檓 sure. They鈥檙e thinking the same thing. It was just me being a clown. . . . I鈥檓 not really going to apologize. We鈥檙e confident just like they are.鈥漁f course, blaming the media for reporting the words that he said is as trustworthy a crutch as inventing disrespect which doesnt exist, but hey, hes going with it.

After trading their second-round pick to the Arizona Cardinals as part of the deal that landed quarterback Josh Rosen in South Florida, Miami still had one glaring hole on the roster. They needed to add offensive linemen to the roster, and they did in the third round. With the 78th overall pick, the Dolphins selected Wisconsin offensive lineman Michael Deiter. NFL.coms Lance Zierlein profiled Deiter pre-Draft, writing, Durable, capable guard/center prospect who knows how to play the game but might lack the athletic elements needed to become a full-time starter on the next level. Dieters experience in a variety of pro-style rushing schemes and his overall technique work are in his favor while his experience across the line offer flexibility that could lock him into an NFL roster as an early backup with the potential to step in and start if needed.Zierlein does not sound that high on Deiter. But what about the people who watched him throughout his three seasons on the field at Wisconsin? We turned to SB Nations Wisconsin site, Buckys 5th Quarter Kenny Stills Jersey , and Owen Riese for a closer look at Deiter. Riese was kind enough to answer my questions of a player who could be a day-one starter for the Dolphins this year.Deiter was a jack-of-all trades in college, playing tackle, guard, and center for Wisconsin. Where did he excel and where do you think he will best play in the NFL?I think ultimately, although he was able to play tackle effectively at the college level, Michael Deiter is at his best on the interior, probably at guard. Hes a dominant run blocker, both excelling in his technique as well as his ability to maul defenders. Hes also a solid blocker at the second level. I think like most Wisconsin offensive linemen, hes much more effective moving forwards than he is backwards. Pass protection is certainly not a liability, but its still developing. What he has working for him in that regard, however, is that playing all of those positions Reshad Jones Jersey , hes had to block Nick Bosa, Rashan Gary, Gerald Willis, Maurice Hurst and others from all across the offensive line. Hes seen NFL level defenders and held his own, so his outlook is encouraging. Deiter was originally considered a third-day prospect, but eventually moved himself up to a third-round grade, matching exactly where the Dolphins selected him. What contributed to this climb?Id actually argue that Deiter fell to the 3rd round. I had always thought of him as a Top 100 prospect, but I had thought prior to the season that he had a chance to sneak into the end of the first round. However, Wisconsin didnt have the year they had hoped for in 2018 and a very average pre-draft process just cemented to me what Deiter is and has been: rock solid. Hes likely never going to be an All-Pro, but Deiter is very consistent and will only continue to improve as a professional. To me, hes always been the best NFL prospect on Wisconsins offensive line, and that showed in the draft compared to what the NFL thought of the other offensive linemen.What areas of weakness will be a concern early in his career?I mentioned it a bit earlier Michael Deiter Miami Dolphins Jerseys , and if he does have a weakness, its as a pass blocker. Hes displayed the ability to anchor on bull rushes, but hes always going to struggle with speed and the elite athleticism were seeing from interior defensive linemen in the NFL commonly in this era. Deiter does a nice job trusting his footwork and maintaining his half-man relationship in pass protection, but his punch will need to continue to improve so hes not catching rushers as often as he did at Wisconsin. If he is asked to start day one, will he be ready? I think he is. Michael Deiter started 54 games at Wisconsin along three positions and never missed a game. Hes as well coached as any offensive lineman youre going to get, coming from the Badgers. I would have no qualms asking Deiter to start week one. Clearly, hes going to need to continue to get game reps, and I think playing him a bit more than normal in the preseason would help that process, but Michael Deiter should be a quality starting guard or center for the Dolphins for a decade.

     hey shy away from playing even their highly drafted rookies early if they have any so

    Despite struggles last season Womens Jordan Willis Jersey , the Cincinnati Bengals have been a perennial playoff team of late so, why arent they considered an elite franchise?Every franchise desired to be among the NFLs elite. Thats not a bold statement by any means, but a true one nonetheless.Competing for championships is the undisputedprimeobjectiveof everyorganization in the NFL. So being a team thatsconstantly in that mix is obviously in better shape than the ones who flounder opportunities and grasp for a more sporadic level of accomplishmentin the hopes of staying relevant.Article continues below ...For pretty much their entire existence, the Cincinnati Bengals have fallen firmly within that latter category.Since they became part of the NFL at the merger in 1970, theyve rarely been able to find sustained success of any kind.Their regular season record is well below .500 (337-388-3). In 47 NFL seasons, theyve ended with a winning record 17 times but also managed a losing record on 22 occasions. Theyve made it to the playoffs just 14 times. In those trips, theyve picked up just fivevictories. Fourof those wins were during Super Bowl runs in the 1980s, but those runs did eventually fall short of the ultimate goal of a championship.Its fitting that both runswere ended by an elite franchise (the 49ers), taunting the team with what it could never achieve by falling in defeat to them on the biggest stage in heartbreaking fashion in both cases.Under Marvin Lewis, things have undeniably been consistently better for the squad.More from NFL Spin ZoneKansas City Chiefs: Should Alex Smith be on a short leash?6m agoNew York Giants: Will Odell Beckham Jr.s numbers or antics define him?29m agoOakland Raiders will likely part ways with Austin Howard47m agoNFL 2017: Ranking all 32 starting running backs1 h agoMiami Dolphins: Potential breakout star on offense2h agoTheyve accumulated seven

    DETROIT (AP)Jim Caldwells cool and calm demeanor was on display in what mightve been his last game as coach of the Detroit Lions. Caldwell chatted with each of his players as they stretched before the game Taylor Decker Jersey White , as he always does. And after it, he didnt seem to give anyone an indication his future with the franchise was in doubt. Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes and Detroit beat the turnover-prone and short-handed Green Bay Packers 35-11 Sunday in a matchup of teams out of the playoff race.Article continues below ... The Lions (9-7) finished with a winning record in consecutive seasons for the first time since doing it three years in a row from 1993-95. That relative feat, along with a 36-28 record and two postseason appearances over four seasons in Detroit, may not be enough for Caldwell to keep his job. Im not done yet, Caldwell said with a slight grin. Detroit linebacker Tahir Whitehead said Caldwell didnt look or sound like he was coaching him for the final time. Hes the same guy, win, lose or draw. Same tone, Whitehead said. Thats what youve got to love about him. The Packers (7-9) have a losing record for the first time since 2008, which is also the last time they didnt earn a spot in the playoffs. Their chances this season were crushed by Aaron Rodgers missing nine games with a collarbone injury, Green Bay, without several banged-up players, gave away its chances to close with a win by turning it over three times in the first half to help the Lions lead 20-3 at halftime. The way we took care of the football today was unacceptable, and obviously had a big impact on the game Quandre Diggs Jersey White , Packers coach Mike McCarthy said The Packers surprised Detroit by opening with an onside kick they recovered, but didnt take advantage because Jamaal Williams bobbled a pass that was picked off by Jarrad Davis. They did take a 3-0 lead on Mason Crosbys 41-yard field goal late in the first quarter, but Detroit tied it on the ensuing possession and took control in the second quarter. Stafford threw a go-ahead, 54-yard pass to Kenny Golladay. After Green Bays Donatello Brown allowed a punt to hit him, the Lions recovered to set up Staffords 3-yard pass to Marvin Jones to put Detroit up 17-3. Stafford threw a 71-yard TD pass to Golden Tate late in the third, giving the Lions a 27-3 lead. Brett Hundley threw 17-yard TD pass and 2-point conversion to Randall Cobb to pull the Packers within 16 early in the fourth period. Hundley was 14 of 24 for 172 yards with two interceptions and a fumble. He was replaced by Joe Callahan late in the game. We had a lot of opportunities, Hundley said. We just stopped ourselves. Stafford was 20 of 29 for 323 yards without a turnover. He caught a 2-point conversion pass after Ameer Abdullah, who had just run for a TD, took a direct snap and pitched it to Tate, who easily connected with Stafford in the end zone to put Detroit up 35-11 midway through the fourth quarter. HE SAID IT McCarthy may make changes on his coaching staff this offseason, but he refused to talk about anything not related to the season-ending loss. Im here to answer questions about the game, so lets not waste each others time, he said. STAT-STUFFERS Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authe...e-diggs-jersey , in the last year of his contract, had three sacks for the second straight week to give him 12 this season and 44 in his five-year career. Detroit cornerback Darius Slay, who started Week 17 leading the NFL in interceptions, picked off his eighth pass of the season. TAKE A SEAT Detroit rookie tight end Michael Roberts was inactive because of conduct detrimental to the team, Caldwell said. INJURIES Packers: WR Geronimo Allison left in the first quarter with a finger injury and returned to play for a banged-up team minus receivers Davante Adams, who signed a contract extension Friday, and Jordy Nelson because of injuries. CB Damarious Randall, TE Richard Rodgers, G Jahri Evans and RB Aaron Jones were also inactive. CB Davon House had a shoulder injury and Williams was evaluated for a concussion late in the game. Lions: RB Theo Riddick (ribs), CB Teez Tabor (shoulder) and S Don Carey (knee) were hurt during the game. Follow Larry Lage at www.twitter.com/larrylage Lions roster cuts: Detroit to cut LB Freddie Bishop, TE Sean McGrath The Detroit Lions have an hour to get their roster down to 53 men, and now theyre under 10 roster moves to make. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that veteran linebacker Freddie Bishop is the latest player to be cut. Bishop, formerly of Western Michigan University Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , was added back in July, just before the start of training camp. Prior to his short stint in Detroit, Bishop had played two season with the Jets, making five game appearances and 10 tackles. Bishop got plenty of playing time throughout the preseason, but when he only got three snaps during the Lions dress rehearsal against the Buccaneers, it looked like his fate my have been sealed.Considering the Lions have already cut Chad Meredith, the odds of Miles Killebrew, Trevor Bates and Darnell Sankey making the team are much higher. Theres a good chance two of those three names will make it on the Lions initial 53-man roster. Although, if the Lions decide to only keep seven linebackers, two of those players could be gone.In addition to Bishop, the Lions are also cutting tight end Sean McGrath per Dave Birkett.

Thats news to Bill OBrien Womens Seantrel Henderson Jersey , who said Tuesday he has no idea when Clowney will report for work.Clowney has not signed the franchise tag, which he will play under this season before becoming a free agent if the Texans dont franchise him again.I dont know. I really dont, OBrien told NFL Network about Clowneys plans. I know hes working hard. Hes out there working out. Hes in shape. Hes doing everything he needs to do to be ready to play. But ultimately thats up to him [when he reports]. When he wants to show up, hell show up, and hell be ready to go. Hes a professional. When that happens, well move forward with that.

Patrick Mahomes stalked Chiefs wide receiver Damarcus Robinson on the sideline as chants of MVP echoed throughout Arrowhead Stadium, trying to track down a football that would serve as a keepsake not only of this night but of this season.The first-year starter had just thrown an 89-yard scoring strike to Robinson, the 50th time one of his passes ended up in the end zone. It also gave Mahomes more than 5,000 yards passing, not to mention put a dagger in Oakland and clinched the AFC West title and No. 1 seed in the playoffs.Theyre special, Mahomes said after securing that memento, and after Kansas City had wrapped up a 35-3 whitewash of the Raiders on Sunday. To do those things in this league, that doesnt happen.Not very often anyway.Mahomes finished with 281 yards passing, the highlights the strike to Robinson and a 67-yard TD pass to Tyreek Hill. That gave him 5,097 yards and 50 touchdown passes, and allowed Mahomes to join Peyton Manning as the only QBs to hit 5,000 and 50 in the same season.This team, we love each other. We root for each other. And thats why weve had so much success, said Mahomes, who already had shattered just about every franchise passing record.Hill finished with five catches for 101 yards, becoming the Chiefs single-season leader for yards receiving with 1,479, while adding a fourth-quarter touchdown run. Damien Williams added 51 yards and a score on the ground as the Chiefs (12-4) beat the Raiders for the eighth time in nine games.The decisive win came after Kansas City squandered a chance to clinch the division with a fourth-quarter collapse against the Chargers and again in a shootout loss last weekend in Seattle.This was a tricky game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. We felt like we let off the accelerator there lately and we didnt take advantage of opportunities.No problem with that on Sunday.Derek Carr had his league-leading streak of 332 passes without an interception snapped when the Chiefs Daniel Sorensen returned a pick for a touchdown in the first quarter. Carr threw another pick and lost a fumble as Oakland (4-12) turned the ball over on its first four possessions.He finished 23 of 32 for 184 yards, and Doug Martin ran for 100 yards but also lost a fumble, as the Raiders headed into an offseason of uncertainty surrounding where they will play next season.Obviously, we got a lot a work to do Ted Hendricks Jersey , said Raiders coach Jon Gruden, who wrapped up his first season back with the franchise. I know today was not a good note, but its a great group of guys who laid quite a foundation and I think we can build on that. Im excited about that.The Chiefs eliminated any drama in the first 20 minutes.Mahomes started the scoring barrage when he threw a perfect post pass to Hill, who waltzed into the end zone for his long touchdown reception. And a few minutes later, Sorensen stepped in front of tight end Jared Cook who had inexplicably stopped his route for a 54-yard pick-6.The Chiefs defense kept causing turnovers, and Williams capped another effortless drive with a short touchdown run, giving Kansas City a comfortable 21-0 lead late in the first half.This was a tricky game, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, and the guys took care of business.The leagues highest-scoring offense continued its onslaught after the break.Mahomes delivered the clincher when he floated a pass deep downfield to Robinson, who ran out of the grasp of his would-be tackler. Robinson was so far ahead of the defense that he turned around at the 15-yard line and backpedaled into the end zone getting a taunting call as his reward.Not that it mattered for the Chiefs, who were already celebrating their postseason bye and what they hope is a Super Bowl road through Arrowhead Stadium. Hill merely added to the party when he added his rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter to put the game away.Were all trying to reach a goal, Hill said, and thats the Super Bowl. Head down, and were all focused, man. Like I said, it feels great, but right now, I just want to win the Super Bowl. We just want to win the Super Bowl.KELCES CATCHESThe Chiefs Travis Kelce had five catches for 62 yards, giving him 1,336 yards this season. That broke the NFL record for tight ends set by the Patriots Rob Gronkowski in 2011, only for the 49ers George Kittle to pass him a few minutes later. The individual accolades in this game alone, I think, are a bit overrated, Kelce said. Youve got 11 guys out there trying to push for one goal and sure enough, we achieved that as a team.MORE RECORDSMahomes was 14 of 24, giving him a franchise-record 383 completions this season. He began the day tied with Trent Green with 369. Reid broke a tie with former Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer for seventh on the NFLs career wins list with his 206th.INJURIESRaiders: DT Maurice Hurst was inactive after dealing with an ankle issue all month. He finished with four sacks, matching the lowest total to lead the Raiders since sacks became a stat in 1982.Chiefs: SS Eric Berry (heel), WR Sammy Watkins (foot) and RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) were among the inactives. LB Reggie Ragland left after his interception with a hip injury. FS Jordan Lucas (neck) and DT Derrick Nnadi (concussion) also left the game.UP NEXTRaiders: Draft prep begins with Oakland holding three first-round selections.Chiefs: A postseason bye and divisional-round game at home await.

     of a new contract. Rookie Tony Pollard got the nod and ran four times for 16 yards on

    CINCINNATI (AP) After practicing on a college soccer field Jarrett Stidham Jersey Draft , quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo headed for a nearby ice cream store to order one of his favorites: cookies and cream in a waffle cone. Then it was back to the Holiday Inn that was the San Francisco 49ers home base for their week in Ohio.Youngstown, its been nothing but a good time, the quarterback said.Hes hoping Cincinnati the last leg of the stay is a sweet time, too.Article continues below ...The 49ers opened their season with a 31-17 victory at Tampa Bay , then headed for the Buckeye State rather than make another cross-country commute. They worked out at Youngstown State, practicing on a soccer field converted into a football field. They let their bodies become accustomed to Eastern time.Their trek home begins with a stop at Paul Brown Stadium on the western side of the state against one of Ohios surprising NFL teams.Up in Cleveland, the touted Browns got crushed on their home field, 43-13 by the Titans. In Cincinnati, the Bengals are feeling resurgent after a 21-20 loss in Seattle during Zac Taylors head coaching debut.Although the Bengals didnt pull off the upset, they looked so much better on offense and defense that players and some of their fans were convinced that a turnaround is ahead for a franchise coming off three straight losing seasons.Its big for confidence, said Andy Dalton, who threw for a career-high 418 yards. What were going to do here is going to work.The Bengals are hoping for a big crowd a rarity at Paul Brown Stadium lately and a win for their new coach against a team thats provided some of their worst moments. San Francisco is 11-4 all-time against Cincinnati Jarrett Stidham NFL Jersey , including two of Joe Montanas four Super Bowl wins in the 1981 and 1988 seasons.The 49ers are looking for one more fond memory in Ohio as they try to go 2-0 for the first time since 2012. They havent opened the season with back-to-back road wins since 1989.Some things to watch at Paul Brown Stadium:REMOVING RUSTGaroppolo showed a little bit of rust in his first game after a knee injury last September. He completed 18 of 27 for just 166 yards against Tampa Bay, throwing one touchdown pass and an interception that was returned for a score. He mostly worked underneath the coverages, completing only one pass that traveled at least 15 yards downfield, a 39-yard TD pass to Richie James Jr. He finished with his fewest yards in 11 career starts.I missed a couple throws that I think usually I wouldve hit, Garoppolo said. Thats just part of it.GET THE BALLThe Niners set records for futility last season when they recorded just seven takeaways and two interceptions. Fixing that problem was an emphasis in the offseason with additions of pass-rushing ends Dee Ford and Nick Bosa and a more aggressive approach on defense. It paid dividends in the opener when San Francisco recovered a fumble against Tampa Bay and intercepted three passes, returning two for touchdowns.Just like not getting them can be contagious, so can getting them, coach Kyle Shanahan said.RUNNING NOWHEREBoth teams struggled to run the ball in their openers. San Francisco gained just 98 yards on 32 carries against Tampa Bay, and Tevin Coleman sprained an ankle. The Bengals managed only 34 yards on 14 carries, with Joe Mixon spraining an ankle. Reserves Matt Breida and Giovani Bernard are expected to move into bigger roles as both teams try to get the ground game going.REVVED UP DEFENSEA defense that was among the worst in Bengals history last season gave an impressive first showing in Seattle, holding the Seahawks to 233 total yards and 12 first downs. Cincinnati went through three defensive coordinators in the past two seasons, and the unit was decimated by injuries last year. Lou Anarumo brought in yet another system that looked good in its first time out.I knew that weve got guys on each level of defense who have played good Jarrett Stidham NFL Draft , winning defense here, Anarumo said. Our job as coaches is to get them to do it again.HOME-FIELD ADVANTAGE?The Bengals averaged only 50,753 fans for home games last season, the second-smallest attendance in the league. Fans were turned off by Marvin Lewis run of 16 straight seasons without a playoff victory, and they initially seemed unconvinced by the offseason coaching changes as the two preseason games drew small crowds.How much will the solid showing in Seattle do to win them back?Unfortunately we didnt win that game, but Id like to think that the people who watched the game and the people that came to the game to support us saw the type of team they want to represent and be excited about, Taylor said. Thats a step in the right direction. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Patrick Mahomes picked up where he left off from his record-breaking debut as a starter, marching the Kansas City Chiefs downfield for a first-quarter touchdown in what became a 38-17 preseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night.Mahomes did a bit of everything on the only series by the Chiefs first-team offense, going 4 for 4 for 66 yards while adding a 10-yard scramble and inducing an an offside penalty.Andy Dalton was nearly as sharp for Cincinnati, going 7 of 9 for 80 yards while leading his team on a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown march to open the game. Dalton did it without the services of injured wide receiver A.J. Green or his top two running backs Jarrett Stidham Buffalo Bills Jersey , Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard.The most interesting thing to happen in the game came late in the first half, when Kyle Shurmur was marching the Chiefs downfield. His throw to Byron Pringle down the sideline was picked by safety Brandon Wilson, scuttling the drive and giving Cincinnati a chance with the ball.But under a rule change approved by NFL owners in March, pass interference calls can be reviewed a response to the controversial non-call in the NFC title game last season. And when officials reviewed the play Saturday night, they decided that cornerback Tony Lippett had caused interference. The penalty gave the Chiefs the ball back and they wound up kicking a field goal.In a delicious coincidence, the provision passed by a 31-1 vote of owners at the leagues annual meeting in Phoenix. The only team that voted against the rule was Cincinnati.49ERS 17, COWBOYS 9SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Dak Prescott completed all four of his pass attempts, caught one and led Dallas to a field goal in a brief cameo in the exhibition opener as the Cowboys went on to lose to San Francisco.Prescott and the bulk of the Dallas offensive starters played one series, moving the ball 65 yards in nine plays. The drive stalled when his third-down pass in the red zone was batted at the line by Sheldon Day right back to Prescott, who lost a yard on the play before Brett Maher kicked the first of his three field goals.Dallas didnt have its entire first-team offense on the field as star running back Ezekiel Elliott remains a contract holdout in search of a new contract. Rookie Tony Pollard got the nod and ran four times for 16 yards on his only drive of the game.Nick Mullens got the starting nod at quarterback for the 49ers and threw for 105 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the first half in his attempt to win the backup job. C.J. Beathard threw for 141 yards Color Rush Byron Cowart Jersey , one TD and one interception in the second half before leaving with what appeared to be an injured hand.RAIDERS 14, RAMS 13OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Nathan Peterman scrambled 50 yards to set up his only touchdown throw and Oakland beat Los Angeles in the preseason opener for both teams.Peterman entered in the third quarter and completed 9 of 12 passes for 66 yards. He also led both teams with 56 yards rushing.A starter for Buffalo in Week 1 a year ago, Peterman is competing with Mike Glennon for the backup job to Derek Carr. Glennon, attempting to latch on with his fourth team in four years, started and went 17 of 25 for 200 yards, but threw two interceptions.Petermans 3-yard touchdown pass to Keelan Doss on an inside slant came two plays after Peterman was forced out of the pocket on a third-and-4 play from the Oakland 42 and weaved his way through the defense to the 8. The throw to Doss was confirmed after a review.Both teams held out of a majority of their starters after holding two joint practices at the Raiders training camp facilities in Napa.Blake Bortles started for the Rams and played one series in place of Jared Goff. Bortles completed 3 of 8 throws for 50 yards and had a 59.4 rating. Glennon looked good early and threw three straight completions that gained 56 yards on Oaklands opening drive. DeAndre Washington scored on a 7-yard run. Greg Zuerlein made a 36-yard field goal in the first half accounted for the Rams.

     the Rams. You have to be secure with the ball. Two hands on the ball, even when I

    The Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes took the league by storm in 2018. Can they Terrance Smith Jersey , and he, do it again in 2019?Thats one of the biggest storylines of the 2019 season.Whenever someone like Mahomes emerges out of the blue and dominates the way he did, opposing defenses spend the offseason obsessing over coming up with ways to slow him down. The 13 teams on the docket this year (he plays three of them twice) surely have studied every game, every snap, every throw for anything that could be used to keep Mahomes from doing to them what he did to pretty much everyone last year.The Patriots may have provided the blueprint for the rest of the league in the AFC Championship game, which didnt exactly shut down the Kansas City offense but ultimately slowed things down enough to outscore them in overtime. Although the Chiefs require a defense to cover every blade of grass on the field, given the power of Mahomes arm and the speed of Tyreek Hills feet, the Patriots chose to defend the deepest areas of the field, keeping the ball in front of them and forcing the Chiefs to move more deliberately than perhaps theyd like.Ultimately, nothing any defense does may matter. Mahomes is at his best when hes forced to improvise, and theres no amount of planning that can keep a guy with uncanny gifts from winning what becomes a schoolyard scramble. If defenses decide to avoid chaos, Mahomes has the arm and accuracy to pick them apart from the pocket.That said, it wont be easy for Mahomes to match what he did last year. But just because other quarterbacks have struggled in their second seasons as the starter, weve already seen that theres something very different about Mahomes. If thats the case Xavier Williams Jersey , the 2019 Mahomes will be the 2018 Mahomes and maybe even better.So get ready for more funny-body throws from various arm angles, with no-look passes and left-handed passes and Fran Tarkenton scrambles and balls heaved off the wrong foot or with no feet on the ground at all. No amount of coaching can stop that kind of special talent, and its something the NFL will get to enjoy for as long as Mahomes has the physical ability to do it. KANSAS CITY, Mo. Patrick Mahomes walked out of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum 10 days ago with his jersey stained, his pride no doubt wounded and an uncharacteristic five turnovers blighting his box score.The only thing he stewed about during the Kansas City Chiefs bye week was the final score.The three interceptions that hed tossed in the 54-51 loss to the Rams, and the two fumbles he lost trying to escape trouble, were merely learning opportunities. Mahomes went to work on the Chiefs bye week dissecting what went wrong, where he can improve and how he can avoid making the same mistakes.Some of those came in crucial moments, knowing when and not to take a chance, he said. But every experience, bad and good, you have to take the positive from. We had a lot of good things happen in that game, but at the same time you have to find a way to win.Spoken like a seasoned veteran rather than a first-year starter.There were indeed plenty of good things for Mahomes to think about. He set career highs with 33 completions and 478 yards passing, and he matched a career high with six touchdown passes Jordan Lucas Jersey , all while the Chiefs rallied time and again in a back-and-forth game that came down to the wire.Yet it was the turnovers that were the first topic tossed at Mahomes when he returned to work.The big knock on him coming out of Texas Tech besides the fact that he was a product of the much-maligned Air Raid system was that he was prone to turnovers.And while it was a largely unfounded knock, considering Mahomes never threw all that many interceptions with the Red Raiders, it continued to follow him through his rookie season and right into his first training camp as starter.Mahomes answered those critics with a turnover-free opener against the Los Angeles Chargers.Despite his gunslinger reputation, he has continued to value possessions all season, throwing only 10 interceptions through the first 11 weeks. He also has lost seven fumbles, and that may ultimately be where experience will make the biggest difference.Mahomes is still learning how to feel the pressure of an NFL pass rush, escape the pocket when the time comes and make sure two hands are on the football when somebody takes a slap at it.Those guys made great plays. They swatted directly on the ball both times, Mahomes said, thinking back to his two fumbles against the Rams. You have to be secure with the ball. Two hands on the ball, even when Im trying to break the pocket.Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy made it clear Thursday turnovers are a team problem, not one that Mahomes must shoulder alone. Wide receivers can do a better job with route-running and fighting for the ball while the offensive line can provide better protection.One thing that weve learned together as a unit, Bieniemy said, is that if we eliminate the self-inflicted wounds, well have a chance.Besides Damien Williams Jersey , even the best quarterbacks can have turnover troubles.The Patriots Tom Brady has six games with four interceptions during a career that will likely land him in the Hall of Fame. Ben Roethlisberger once tossed five for Pittsburgh against Jacksonville.And the player to whom Mahomes is constantly compared, Brett Favre, had a game with three fumbles and two picks and concluded his career with an NFL-record 336 interceptions.Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson, whose Chiefs record for touchdown throws in a season Mahomes has already shattered, once fumbled seven times in a game against the Chargers.The difference in some of those dismal days by some of the NFLs best quarterbacks? They didnt also throw for nearly 500 yards with six touchdown passes in a game they nearly won.You dont hide it, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, when asked how he approached the performance by his young quarterback. You go back and evaluate it. How did those things happen and how do you fix them so they dont happen again? Weve done that. The one thing about Pat is he doesnt make the same mistake twice. Thats been his M.O. here. Im not worried about that.I want him to keep firing, Reid said. Learn from his mistakes, but keep firing.NOTES: DL Chris Jones was voted AFC defensive player of the month. He has nine sacks total, and at least one in each of the past seven games. WR Sammy Watkins (foot) remained out of practice Thursday. Safety Eric Berry (heel) and C Mitch Morse (concussion) continued to work on a limited basis.100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta
