    The rivalry really is back on.With the Patriots dumping quarterback Brian Hoyer and not closing the door on bringing him back White Derek Rivers Jerseys , the Colts have pounced.Indianapolis has added Hoyer via a three-year $12 million deal. Per a source with knowledge of the terms, $7 million is fully guaranteed at signing. The other $2 million reflects an injury guarantee in 2020. Hoyer also can earn $1 million in incentives.The Patriots quickly re-acquired Hoyer in 2017, after trading Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers. He served as the backup for the balance of that season and all of 2018. And he drew praise for his role in helping prepare the Patriots to face various opponents by his running of the scout team.Hoyers knowledge of the Kyle Shanahan offense (which is used by Rams coach Sean McVay) came in handy in Super Bowl LIII, which helped the Patriots realize that the Rams dont have an answer for all-out pressure.His experiences and recall will come in handy this season for the Colts, even though the rivalry with the Patriots wont be renewed until the playoffs, if both teams make it there. Along the way Derek Rivers Jerseys 2019 , Hoyer will have a chance to help guide Chad Kelly on the right path when he returns from a two-game suspension.And its now clear that, when Kelly returns, hell likely be No. 3 behind Jacoby Brissett and Hoyer. PASADENA, Calif. (AP) The New England Patriots competitive but action-starved Super Bowl victory over the Los Angeles Rams was seen by 100.7 million people on television and streaming services, the smallest audience for footballs annual spectacle in a decade.A boycott by disgruntled New Orleans Saints fans, a campaign by fans of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and a game with only one touchdown combined to shrink the audience. On CBS alone White Deatrich Wise Jerseys , the game was seen by 98.2 million people, compared to 103.4 million who watched on NBC last year, according to the Nielsen company.Since reaching a peak of 114.4 million viewers for the Patriots 2015 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, the Super Bowl audience has slipped each year since. The Super Bowl is traditionally the most-watched television event of the year in the U.S., and its audience hadnt dipped below 100 million since the Pittsburgh SteelersArizona Cardinals game in 2009.CBS dealt with a city that held a major grudge. Many fans in New Orleans, where the hometown Saints were victimized by a blown referees call toward the end of its loss to the Rams in the NFC championship Deatrich Wise Jerseys 2019 , skipped the game entirely. Preliminary ratings from New Orleans showed that Super Bowl viewership this year was half what it was in 2018.New Orleans Times Picayune newspaper printed a mostly blank front page on Monday with the words, Super Bowl? What Super Bowl?The newspaper asked, you think the NFL is sad that the Saints werent in it to spice up the night?There was also a campaign on Twitter by people who said they would not watch the game because of Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who hasnt been able to land a job in the NFL since leading demonstrations in protest of police treatment of minorities.After a season of offensive fireworks and conference championships that both went into overtime, Sundays game was a defensive struggle where the teams were tied 3-3 entering the fourth quarter. Thats a tough slog for the casual fan, and the Super Bowl draws millions who dont watch football regularly.At one point CBS commentator Tony Romo said White Joe Thuney Jerseys , this is hard to watch. Others were blunter still. The website The Ringer said that the historically boring Super Bowl sent football back to the Stone Age.Cindy Boren of The Washington Post wrote that it was a snore of a Super Bowl. The New York Times headlined a story: How boring was the Super Bowl? The punts got exciting.The words boring and Super Bowl appeared in the same tweets more than 70,000 times in the past 24 hours. The words worst and Super Bowl were matched more than 50,000 times.If anything, football fans have been spoiled by a string of competitive Super Bowls after many years in which big game blowouts became commonplace. This year the games outcome was in doubt until the final seconds, but it had only one touchdown and few scoring threats.The one growth area for CBS was streaming. The network said an average of 2.6 million people streamed the game, up 31 percent over last year.CBS did achieve its goal of having a large audience sample its new talent show Joe Thuney Jerseys 2019 , The Worlds Best. Nielsen said 22.2 million people watched the shows debut, the most-watched entertainment show since the Oscars last year and the biggest entertainment premiere on TV since Undercover Boss debuted after the Super Bowl nine years ago.

     the Chiefs final safety on the roster, Jordan Lucas [url=http://www.thechiefsclub.co

    ROSTER MOVES: Armani Watts Mecole Hardman Jersey Cheap , Laurent Duvernay-Tardif placed on injured reserve; Frank Zombo returns The Kansas City Chiefs announced a series of roster moves on Tuesday afternoon in a tweet from their official Twitter account.We had plenty of indication that starting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was headed to injured reserve, but rookie safety Armani Watts to injured reserve is a surprise.Watts left the Chiefs game against the Jaguars Sunday with a groin injury, and it appears it was more serious than we all first thought. Each NFL team is allowed to have two players return from injured reserve, and based upon the Chiefs recent comments on Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, along with previous comments of general manager Brett Veach, those two players should be Duvernay-Tardif and safety Daniel Sorensen.Our in-house injury expert Aaron Borgmann will remind you rehab has to go well for that to be the case Carlos Hyde Jersey , but its something to keep in mind moving forward. Any player not named Duvernay-Tardif or Sorensen that heads to IR, like Watts, is probably done for the year from here on out. Outside linebacker Frank Zombo is back, which makes plenty of sense. Zombo spent 2013-2017 with the Chiefs before being cut at the 53-man roster deadline earlier this season. He is familiar with defensive coordinator Bob Suttons system.With Watts injured, the Chiefs final safety on the roster, Jordan Lucas Tyrann Mathieu Jersey , played quite a bit on Sunday against Jacksonville. It seemed like a minor signing last week, but newcomer and ex-Bengal Josh Shaw will be in the mix now at safety. We also found out Tuesday Shaw could get a crack at his old team with the Sunday night surround. Of course, there is still hope this guy named Eric Berry could play this year. That would be nice. Steve Spagnuolo was let go as the interim head coach of the Giants after the 2017 season and was out of football altogether for the first time in nearly 40 years during the 2018 season.During his first press conference since returning to the NFL, Spagnuolo was asked about how he spent the year away from the game and how it felt to be doing something else during football season.I found it to be both challenging and rewarding, Spagnuolo said. The challenge was missing football and the comradery of coaches, players Damien Williams Jersey , not being at training camp where its nice and hot and you are doing football, that was a challenge, was missing it. The rewards were sitting back and seeing a big picture view of the NFL and the game of football, as opposed to being in these buildings during the season and having the blinders on to the team you are about to play. I just thought a big picture view of the league, the game of football, the pluses and minuses Derrick Thomas Jersey , I have oodles of notes.Spagnuolo was living near NFL Films headquarters and he went there on a weekly basis to watch file, which meant he came to Kansas City with a lot of plays that I wanted to pull and give to the players hell be coaching this year.Whether it came from the big picture view he developed or his own experiences in the league, he also came with the knowledge that the whole rest of the team is affected when youre looking for a quarterback. Patrick Mahomes takes the Chiefs out of that category and gives Spagnuolo a good chance to return to the NFL with a winner.

     run the clock down. They have no timeouts. Were going to ru

    Cornerback Marcus Peters has struggled since the Chiefs traded him to the Rams Tyler Higbee Jersey , and Kansas Citys secondary has struggled without him. Nine months later, it remains unclear why the Chiefs traded Peters and a sixth-round pick for a fourth-rounder and a 2019 second-rounder. Peters has suggested raising his fist in support of Colin Kaepernick during the national anthem played a part in his departure.The Chiefs also suspended him for one game last season after he tossed an officials flag and left the field without being ejected.Whatever the teams reasons, Chiefs coach Andy Reid wasnt shedding any light on them during a conference call with Rams beat writers Thursday.Yeah, I鈥檓 not going to get into all of that, Reid said, via Rich Hammond of the Southern California News Group. That was a decision that was made here, and it happened and he is doing a heck of a job. I鈥檓 proud of the way he鈥檚 playing.Rams cornerback Aqib Talib said Peters is good and expects him to bounce back from his struggles. For both Peters and the Rams, there is not a better time than this week for that to happen. One of the themes of the day is frustration with the officiating. Landon Collins and Mike Tomlin were among those upset about calls in their games and said so afterward.The Seahawks did the same about a holding call on D.J. Fluker.I was pretty frustrated about this because we put ourselves in position to win Taylor Rapp Jersey Cheap , Seattle coach Pete Carroll said, via Brady Henderson of ESPN. We hit the big play to Tyler [Lockett], and were in field-goal range and were going to run the clock down. They have no timeouts. Were going to run the clock down, kick a field goal and win the football game and go home. So it was right there. We ran the ball 32 times on the day and they ran it 30, I think, so there was 60-something runs and it comes down to, Lets throw that flag right there. Unfortunately it happened. They got a great break out of that. It was a great break for them. I havent seen the play, but there was a lot of plays in that game that probably could have warranted a penalty thrown Taylor Rapp Jersey Womens , and it happened on that play right then. Really, it just pissed me off knowing that was how this thing ended. It was unfortunate.On a second-and-13 play from the Los Angeles 35 with 3:53 remaining, Mike Davis ran for 5 yards. But Fluker, the right guard, was called for holding Ndamukong Suh. Russell Wilson threw two incompletions and the Seahawks were forced to punt. They never got closer.They called a penalty. It cost us the game, Fluker said, via Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR and PFT. I dont think it was a penalty.Both teams had seven penalties, but that was the biggest of the day. It was Flukers first holding penalty since 2016 Taylor Rapp white jersey , though Sunday was only his ninth start over the past two seasons. Suh finished the day with seven tackles and a sack.Id been taking him to the water all game, Fluker said. Me and 93 going at it all game. He got frustrated. I got frustrated. At the end of the day, were both competitors. I got respect for him, Ive got a whole lot of respect for him. At the end of the day, Ive got to do my job. I got to go block him. I got to take him. . . . Wherever he needs to go, Im going to take him there. I aint scared of no one. I dont back down for no one. At the end of the day, they got lucky.

They are going to tank the short term in an effort to win in the long term. They are tanking for the future.And every time the word tank comes up, the masses descend. They argue that Miami should tank. They argue that the Dolphins will not tank. They say a new head coach would never agree to tank. They say free agents would stay away from a team for years if they see them as willing to tank. They say that the development of the latest #LoseFor... or #TankFor... or #SuckFor... hashtags are genius. Or they are dumb.Whatever they are - the word tank is nothing more than clickbait in order to get those arguments coming again.The Dolphins are not going to tank the 2019 season. They will not.They are not tanking anything.The Miami Dolphins are rebuilding. Period. That is it.The Dolphins do not have a lot of salary cap space - they can create more, but they will still lag far behind the rest of the league when all of the salary cap cuts are completed - so they will not be big spenders in free agency. Rebuilds do not target free agency, they target the draft.That is not tanking, that is rebuilding.Teams with a new head coach typically take three years to (a) change players to fit the new system, (b) learn the new system, and (c) master the new system. That is exactly what the Miami Dolphins will be doing as they enter year one of a new head coachs regime. Brian Flores did not come to Miami to tank. He came to Miami to rebuild the team in his image and to fit his system.That is not tanking, that is rebuilding.The dictionary says to tank is fail completely, especially at great financial cost and, in sports, it is deliberately lose or fail to finish (a game). The Dolphins are not failing completely at great financial cost, and they are not deliberately losing or failing to finish a game. They are fixing years of quick fixes that have been at great financial cost and, just because the team is looking to get younger and build through the draft does not mean they are trying to deliberately lose.And they are not going to fail to finish a game.That is not tanking, that is rebuilding.The Dolphins want to get younger. They want to get healthier. They want to fix the issues - like the offensive line and the run defense - that have plagued the club for years. They do not want to tank - they want to fix.Getting younger. Getting healthier. Getting better.That is not tanking Infant Andrew Van Ginkel Jersey , that is rebuilding.Tanking is a sexy word because it makes people talk. It makes people argue. And, it makes people click. The Miami Dolphins are not tanking. They are not holding out better players and calling plays that will fail in order to purposely lose a game. They are getting younger. They are fixing their faults. And they are doing it the way great teams have been built.They are rebuilding.You will continue to hear how the Miami Dolphins are tanking the 2019 season. You will hear out they will fail to find a quarterback in order to make sure they will lose. You will hear how everything is designed for 2020. You will hear how the Dolphins love this 2020 quarterback prospect and that is their target. You will hear how the Dolphins actually love this other quarterback prospect, and he is their real target. You will hear how they are all in on getting a specific player.You will hear how they have to tank this year to get there next year.You will even hear how sources have said the Dolphins, behind closed doors, are even using the word tank for the 2019 season to focus on 2020.You go ahead and tell Kenyan Drake, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Xavien Howard, Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills, and Reshad Jones that they need to sacrifice one year of their career, their bodies, so the team can lose. Tell them to lose on purpose. Tell them to tank.You try to re-sign players like Cameron Wake, JaWuan James, Frank Gore Akeem Spence Jersey , John Denney, or any of the other soon-to-be free agents with the promise that they are going to lose as many games as possible.Last year, all we heard pre-draft was how the Dolphins loved all the different quarterbacks. How did that work out? Somehow - without a head coach and coaching staff in place - the Dolphins now know their exact draft plans two drafts ahead of time?Every year we see players rise and fall dramatically during the college football season, the draft prep, Pro Days, the Scouting Combine, and in team meetings. A player who today looks like a lock as the first overall pick could end up falling out of the first day by this time next year. Plus, how many other teams will be looking for a quarterback in 2020 - and could be worse than Miami, or have the ammunition to trade in front of Miami? Yet, already, Miami is locked onto a player, a system, a plan that involves intentionally failing and knowing they will get the guy.I have always thought the 2020 Draft is the time to get your next quarterback. And, maybe having a higher draft pick is the right way to do it in the long run. None of that means a team has to tank in order to be there.Rebuild yes. Find the younger players who can grow with the head coach and the rest of the team Christian Wilkins white jersey , starting this year. Let presumed-to-be head coach Brian Flores find the players who fit his system and let general manager Chris Grier acquire those players. Let the team grow.A young team, growing, is not a team tanking. It is a team growing. Rebuilding.Maybe the Dolphins are going into this season not caring if they challenge for the AFC East and are looking to build through the draft. Maybe they will lose a lot of games. Maybe they will look to 2020 to select a quarterback.Maybe that is all just called rebuilding. This is one of our random and yet not so random (since they appear nearly every evening) live threads.

     anything away from the good work that so

    These arent your fathers Bengals.The team that once provided consistent safe harbor for players who found trouble away from the field has taken a stand Darqueze Dennard Jersey , waiving running back Mark Walton.The Bengals invested a fourth-round pick in Walton last year. But he has been arrested three times this offseason. Its important for our team to get off to a fresh start as we begin the 2019 season, coach Zac Taylor said in a statement. For that reason, we felt it best if we move forward without Mark Walton. We hope his situation gets resolved, but we dont want to take anything away from the good work that so many other players have already begun to demonstrate.Walton surrendered to authorities two days ago on felony charges of possession of a concealed weapon, marijuana possession Randy Bullock Jersey White , and reckless driving.As a rookie, Walton appeared in fourteen games. He had 14 carries for 34 yards, and five catches for 41. The Miami native, who played at the University of Miami, will be subject to waivers. It would be a shock if anyone claims him. The initial diagnosis on Bengals receiver A.J. Green is a sprained left ankle Womens Preston Brown Jersey , via multiple reports.Green is headed for an MRI to be sure, Ian Rapoport of the NFL reports. You dont want to assume anything, but I think were going to be OK, coach Zac Taylor said, via James Palmer of the NFL.Thus Womens Trey Hopkins Jersey , Green and the Bengals might be able to breathe a sigh of relief, but both sides also will want to exercise caution with the receiver through the preseason. The Bengals want to do all they can to make sure Green is on the field for more than the nine games he played last season, and Green wants a contract extension.The receiver is in the final year of his deal, making $12 million in base salary and counting $15.2 million against the salary cap in 2019.Green has six 1,000-yard seasons in his eight seasons but had a career-low 694 receiving yards in 2018.He was running a go route against Dre Kirkpatrick on Saturday when he went down. He got up limping and eventually was carted off the field.

     (literally), the offensive line couldnt run block

    GLENDALE Luke Willson Jersey White , Ariz. (AP) Its an NFL cliche, the crafty cornerback fooling the rookie quarterback.Thats exactly what happened in the biggest play of Detroits 17-3 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.Darius Slay, who tied for the lead in the NFL with eight interceptions last season, stepped in front of intended receiver Trent Sherfield, picked off Rosens pass and returned it 67 yards for the games first touchdown, putting his team up 10-0 in the third quarter.Article continues below ...I kind of baited him, Slay said. I knew it was coming. I knew it before the play even happened. The only thing I was concerned about was if I was going to score with it. I knew it was coming and I made a play on it.Rosen said Slay made it seem like he was giving him (Sherfield) space. It made it seem like he was playing really soft because it was third-and-long. But right when our receiver broke at the sticks, he just made a really good play.Hes a veteran. Thats why maybe go away from him next time.The Lions (5-8), losers of five of their previous six overall, ended an eight-game losing streak in Arizona that dated to 1993. It was a matchup of two first-year coaches who are having their struggles and this one clearly went to Detroits Matt Patricia over the Cardinals Steve Wilks.It is great to get the win, Patricia said. It is great to see some of the improvement in some of the things we have been doing in the last month or last three weeks or so.Arizona (3-10), which fell flat coming off its biggest win of the season a week earlier at Green Bay, avoided being shut out with Zane Gonzalezs 22-yard field goal that cut the lead to 10-3 with 8:14 to play.Rosen completed four of six passes as Arizona drove to the 5-yard line, but a fade pass to Larry Fitzgerald was incomplete and the Cardinals, who fell to 1-6 at home, settled for the field goal.Detroit took the subsequent kickoff and went 75 yards in seven plays, with the help of a pass interference penalty against Budda Baker http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authe...olladay-jersey , and Zach Zenners 1-yard touchdown run with 4:05 to play put the game safely in the Lions control.It was missed tackles and penalties that got them down there, Wilks said. I thought the defense kept us in the game pretty much to that point.Matt Praters 47-yard field goal in the first half accounted for the other Detroit points on a day neither offense could do much.It was one of the games you had to kind of wear them out, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said. They got some good players up there. That fourth quarter our guys really started leaning on them, dominating.Fitzgerald caught five passes, all in the second half and most when the game had been all but decided, to move ahead of Jerry Rice for most receptions by a player for one team at 1,286.Detroit took the opening kickoff and moved downfield with a strong running game. But after a short pass from Stafford, LeGarrette Blount had the ball knocked loose by Baker, who recovered at the Cardinals 30.Neither team threatened again until the Lions used up 7 minutes, 55 seconds to drive 65 yards and set up Praters field goal with 9:35 left in the first half.Arizona took the kickoff and got a 19-yard pass from Rosen to Sherfield, combined with a facemask penalty against Detroit, moved the ball to the Lions 30. But a pass to David Johnson lost 6 yards and Gonzalezs 54-yard field goal try had plenty of distance but bounced off the left upright.FINALLY FITZGERALDFitzgerald, who entered the game with at least one catch in 223 consecutive games, was targeted once and didnt have a catch in the first half. Finally, with 5:48 left in the third quarter, Fitzgeralds 14-yard reception kept the streak alive and moved him ahead of Rice. Three of his catches came the last time Arizona had the ball.INJURIESDetroit was hit hard by injuries. In the span of three plays, the Lions lost defensive ends Ezekiel Ansah (knee) and DaShawn Hand (shoulder). Later in the half Womens Calvin Johnson Jersey , right tackle Rick Wagner left with a concussion. The team also lost fullback Nick Bellore (ankle), wide receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring), cornerback Marcus Cooper (back) and safety Charles Washington (hamstring).Injuries happen, Patricia said. Certainly we had a couple of them today. It is just important for us to always maintain our philosophy of everybody has to be ready to go.Arizona wide receiver Chad Williams was inactive after aggravating a hamstring injury late last week.UP NEXTLions: at Buffalo next Sunday.Cardinals: at Atlanta next Sunday.Wednesday open thread: Where do the Detroit Lions need the most improvement in Week 2? The Detroit Lions problems on Monday night were vast. Just browse our Week 1 stock report or our Lions vs. Jets report card. There wasnt a single unit absolved from blame in Week 1. The quarterback made bad decisions, tight ends, running backs and receivers all dropped the ball (literally), the offensive line couldnt run blockand thats just the offense. Whats tough to parse through, though, is which of these poor performances were aberrations and which were representative of what we should expect for the rest of 2018. Either way, things need to change and need to change quick. So todays Question of the Day is simple: Where do the Detroit Lions need to improve most from Week 1 to Week 2?My answer: It seems like a simplistic solution, but an improved Matthew Stafford would go a long, long ways in making this team competitive again.We saw a glimpse of that on Monday night. The Lions played a pretty bad first half, but went into the locker room down only one score, thanks to a solidbut ultimately disappointingtwo-minute drill. Stafford came out in the second half and had a literal perfect drive, going 4-for-4 with 80 yards and a touchdown, and suddenly the score was tied.From there, Stafford was awful. His next pass was a pick-six. Then an incomplete pass after he scrambled and took a shot. The team went three-and-out and the ensuing punt was returned for a touchdown. The next drive Zach Zenner Jersey White , Stafford came back, threw an incomplete pass, then was picked off again.So after the Lions tied the game in the third quarter, heres Staffords statline in the next three drives: 0-for-4, 0 yards, 2 INTs (1 for a touchdown). Thats your entire ballgame.The Lions played poorly throughout the game on Monday, but without that string of horrible plays from Stafford, they wouldve, at least, been in the game in the fourth quarter, and quite possibly still couldve won it.The good news is that kind of performance from Stafford is relatively rare, especially recently. Coming into Monday night, Stafford had only thrown two or more interceptions four times in his previous 40 games. Get back to that, and well at least see an entertaining game this week. Your turn.Tweets from https://twitter.com/PrideOfDetroit/lists/lions-coverage

     The Texans got to the 1 on second down later

    Texans head coach Bill OBrien has taken on increased personnel responsibilities with the absence of a General Manager in Houston and he used them to make a couple of big trades this weekend.The teams been criticized for the return they received from Seattle for Jadeveon Clowney as well as how much they gave the Dolphins to acquire Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills. OBrien was asked about that criticism when he met with reporters on Monday.OBrien said that the Texans have a group of people working to make these decisions and that they feel like we did what was best for the team. He went on to say that feeling trumps what others might feel about the teams decisions.We cant control what the outside world thinks Aaron Colvin Jersey White , OBrien said, via Aaron Wilson of the . Its probably taken me a while to figure that out.The Texans traded for Tunsil without working out a contract extension that would keep him under team control beyond the 2020 season and the price paid to get him would seem to give Tunsil good leverage in any future discussions about a deal. OBrien declined to say whether there have been any talks on that front as the team head toward the start of the season with a very different looking roster than they had at the end of last week. HOUSTON (AP)Ben Roethlisberger told his teammates they didnt need to make up for Antonio Browns absence. He just wanted everyone to do what they could to help out, figuring that would be enough. It certainly was. I know everyone was thinking about A.B. not being out there and trying to fill those shoes, but you cant fill those shoes, Roethlisberger said. I just tried to tell them: `Dont try to fill them, just try to be the best you can be.Article continues below ... Roethlisberger threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns in the first game since Brown injured his calf Andre Johnson Jersey , and the Steelers clinched a first-round playoff bye with a 34-6 win over the Texans. Roethlisberger threw passes to six players as Pittsburgh (12-3) romped over the lowly Texans (4-11) despite missing the NFLs leading receiver. It just kind of shows how many weapons we actually have in our offense everybody played well, LeVeon Bell said. Ben made the plays when he needed to. I made some plays on third down when I needed to. It was literally a total team effort. The Steelers led 20-0 at halftime after taking advantage of two turnovers by the Texans. Bell added a 10-yard TD run late in the third quarter and rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster made it 34-6 with an 18-yard touchdown grab in the fourth. Bell finished with 14 carries for 69 yards and Smith-Schuster had six receptions for 75 yards. Significant day for us, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. Our last regular-season road game, finishing 7-1, getting our 12th win, securing a ticket to the second round. All very positive things Deshaun Watson Jersey White , but its kind of the culmination of being singularly focused on the next opportunity. T.J. Yates was 7 of 16 for 83 yards and a touchdown for the Texans, who lost their fifth straight game and for the eighth time in nine games. Its brutal, coach Bill OBrien said of Houstons skid. Its been a tough year. Yates made his second straight start since Tom Savage sustained a concussion. Yates left the game briefly on Monday to be evaluated for a concussion, and his replacement, Taylor Heinicke, sustained a concussion on his only full possession. Roethlisberger was replaced by backup Landry Jones with about six minutes remaining and the game well in hand. The Steelers hurried and harassed Yates all day with Mike Hilton leading the way with three sacks and three quarterback hits Keke Coutee Jersey White , Cameron Heyward adding two and forcing a fumble. Hilton became the first cornerback with three sacks in a game since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. The Texans couldnt do much right on a day their home stadium was overtaken by vocal Steelers fans waving their Terrible Towels. One of the few highlights came on an acrobatic 3-yard touchdown reception by DeAndre Hopkins in the fourth quarter. Hopkins deflected the ball with his right hand, reeled it in with his left and got both feet down before falling out of bounds for his NFL-best and franchise-record 13th touchdown reception. Hopkins may have been the only one who wasnt impressed with the grab. Im mad I didnt catch it the first time, he said. Like me, who I am, I was supposed to catch that one the first time with my right hand. The Steelers took a 10-0 lead when Roethlisberger connected with Justin Hunter on a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. Alfred Blue had a 48-yard run on the first play of the second quarter to get the Texans to the Pittsburgh 18-yard line. The Texans got to the 1 on second down later in that drive, but couldnt do anything on the next two plays before Yates was intercepted in the end zone. Pittsburgh added a touchdown on a 1-yard run by Roosevelt Nix on the ensuing possession. Heyward sacked Yates three plays later and caused a fumble recovered by Bud Dupree to give the Steelers the ball right back. Pittsburgh added a 36-yard field goal on the next drive to push the lead to 20-0. Yates was sacked again on Houstons next possession and injured on the play. He left the game to be evaluated for a concussion J.J. Watt Jersey , forcing the Texans to play Heinicke. Heinicke finished that possession and remained in the game for the first drive of the third quarter while Yates was being evaluated. But Heinicke took a hard hit on a sack on the last play of that drive and had to be evaluated for a concussion, too. FAMILY TIME J.J. Watt didnt get to play on Monday as he recovers from a broken leg, but spent some time pregame with his brother, Pittsburgh rookie linebacker T.J. Watt. Houstons defensive end threw the ball around with T.J. and the brothers also posed for some pictures with their parents before the game. T.J. was disappointed that his brother didnt get to play on Monday, but is looking forward to seeing him return next season. I wish he was out there just to be a dominant force for them, T.J. said. But I know hell come back bigger DeAndre Hopkins Jersey , faster and stronger. INJURY UPDATE Houston cornerback Kevin Johnson injured his knee in the third quarter and didnt return. Texans safety Corey Moore also injured his knee in the second half and didnt return. UP NEXT Steelers: Host the Browns on Sunday. Texans: Visit Indianapolis on Sunday.

    Raiders coach Jon Gruden says Antonio Brown is the best wide receiver in the NFL.Asked today about how Brown fits into his offense E. J. Manuel Jersey , Gruden said that he wants great playmakers at wide receiver, and he believes thats exactly what he has.We dont want to have a good receiving corps, I want to have the best receiving corps in football, and I think in order to have the best you have to have the best, and in my opinion we added the best wide receiver in football, Gruden said.Theres certainly a strong case to be made that Brown is the best wide receiver in football, and Gruden has previously said that he believes Brown is the hardest-working player hes ever watched practice. The Raiders are adding the talent Gruden says they need, and its on Gruden to turn that talent into a much better team than the Raiders were a year ago. The latest thing to sweat on fantasy football waivers besides byes and injuries: real-life NFL trades.The deal that sent Cleveland running back Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville last week prompted immediate pickups and high free agency acquisition budget (FAAB) bids on Cleveland rookie Nick Chubb. Oakland trading Amari Cooper on Monday to Dallas has led to a new Oakland waiver target at wide receiver.With the NFL trade deadline a week away, you are going to have to stay regularly updated on the maneuvering as much as possible. You may have to rush to make a big move at any time in some leagues. Those with open pickups after waivers are facing a race similar to what happened last week when Chubb suddenly became a prized asset.RUNNING BACKSMARLON MACK, Colts (54 percent owned): Many owners cut Mack when he was not healthy, a mistake too many fantasy players make. You should not cut a potentially valuable player when they are hurt if its not a season-ender. Mack has exceeded expectations since roaring back from a hamstring problem over the past two games. He totaled 159 yards and a TD from scrimmage last week. Trade for a top waiver pick or spend a sizable amount of your FAAB on Mack if you need RB help.DOUG MARTIN, Raiders (18.2): Jalen Richard may turn out to be the more productive Oakland running back in point-per-reception leagues, especially as the Raiders play from behind often. But with Marshawn Lynch now on injured reserve Marquel Lee Jersey , Martin should be the main ball carrier for Oakland. Martin has always been inconsistent but can rip off some big gains at any time.CHRIS IVORY, Bills (9): Here we are again recommending him, and hopefully a few of you learned your lesson already and kept Ivory rostered, as it is apparent LeSean McCoy cannot stay healthy. Now McCoy is in the concussion protocol and Ivory has a good chance to start for the Bills in Week 8. He has played well when called on, with 126 scrimmage yards in Week 3 and 81 rushing yards in Week 7.KAPRI BIBBS, Redskins (0.9): He caught four passes for 43 yards and a TD on Sunday with Chris Thompson out. Opportunities may continue to present themselves for Bibbs as Thompson seems to be a consistent injury risk and Adrian Peterson has been getting banged up. Bibbs could continue to get chances to fill in.WIDE RECEIVERSDANNY AMENDOLA, Dolphins (24.4): He has been revived over the past two games with Brock Osweiler taking over at QB for Miami. Amendola has caught 14 passes over the past two games and finished with 84 yards and a TD on Sunday. He is a nice add for bye week depth, but always keep in mind his long history of injury issues. He is already dealing with a seemingly minor shoulder problem this week.TREQUAN SMITH, Saints (8.7): The rookie exploded onto the scene with 111 receiving yards and two TDs in Week 5, and while Smith caught only three balls for 44 yards in Week 7, his role may continue to expand going forward. Hes more than just a big-play type, but that dimension makes him an exciting upside addition.KELVIN BENJAMIN, Bills (32.9): He has some past history with Derek Anderson Giorgio Tavecchio Jersey , who will remain Buffalos starting QB for now. Anderson is a mess much like the other Bills QBs, but he can get the ball to Benjamin, who had four catches for 71 yards in Week 7. That makes him worth a flier for bye week usage.MARTAVIS BRYANT (9.1): The troubled but very talented Bryant will get another chance to show off his abilities following the Cooper trade. The deal opens a potential starting slot for Bryant, who had six catches for 142 yards in Weeks 4 and 5 while operating in a secondary role in the Oakland passing game.TIGHT ENDSCHRIS HERNDON, Jets (0.6); He has scored in two consecutive games, building on some promise he showed in the preseason. The rookie has flashed recent signs of being a key target for his first-year QB, Sam Darnold. Herndon is also welcomed by the Jets to step forward more because of their injury issues at WR.ED DICKSON, Seahawks (0.2); He is finally back at practices and could make his season debut this Sunday. After missing the first six games with a quadriceps injury, Dickson could emerge as a streamer or bye week play.QUARTERBACKDak Prescott, Cowboys (30): He has re-emerged as a viable play over the past two games, as 115 rushing yards and two scores have boosted his outlook. Adding Cooper only creates more optimism that he now has the ability to eventually move back to at least high-end QB2 territory.

Through a series of trades, the team ended with five total selections between rounds four and seven. When all was said and done and the dust had settled, the following men were added to the Patriots roster:Lets take a closer look at how the second day of the draft went for New England:Patriots draft OG Hjalte Froholdt: 4-118New England started into day three by staying put at #118 and investing into one of the most intriguing guards in the entire draft: Hjalte Froholdt. The Arkansas product also brings very good athleticism to the table and as an outstanding pass protector will compete with Ted Karras for the top backup spot along the Patriots interior offensive line at least in 2019. Further down the line, Froholdt might become insurance in case starting left guard and impending free agent Joe Thuney cannot be retained beyond this year.Patriots draft QB Jarrett Stidham: 4-133With their second selection in the fourth round, the Patriots decided to invest in a quarterback: Auburns Jarrett Stidham will compete for snaps and a roster spot behind Tom Brady this summer. A smart and accurate passer that knows how to take care of the football, Stidham will start his career by sitting and learning before potentially taking over for Brian Hoyer as the Patriots top backup in 2020 if not earlier.Patriots trade 4-134 and 7-243 to the Rams for 5-162 and 5-167Immediately after drafting Jarrett Stidham with the 133rd selection, the Patriots opted to move pick number 134: New England traded the pick together with one of the its four seventh-round selections to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two fifth-rounders. The Rams Youth Joejuan Williams Jersey , meanwhile, used #134 on defensive tackle Greg Gaines.Patriots draft DE Byron Cowart: 5-159New England used the first of the two picks acquired from the Rams to move up the board again: together with 7-239, the team traded up three spots to draft defensive lineman Byron Cowart. A developmental option that needs to refine its technique at the next level, the Maryland product has some positional versatility and physical tools to possible develop into a rotational option.Patriots draft P Jake Bailey: 5-163Four picks after selecting Byron Cowart, the Patriots moved up the board again: the team invested 5-167 and 7-246 to trade up four spots in the fifth round and select Stanfords Jake Bailey. A strong-legged punter who also has experience working on kickoffs, Bailey will compete against veteran Ryan Allen this summer.Patriots draft CB Ken Webster: 7-252After waiting almost 90 picks, the Patriots made their fifth selection of the day and tenth overall of the 2019 draft near the end of the seventh round. New England went with Ole Miss cornerback Ken Webster Womens Joejuan Williams Jersey , a developmental defensive back that needs to improve his feel for the game but has some foundational skills in place. When sued in civil court, the natural human response is to say, Lets sue them back. Its rarely a good idea to give in to that impulse.The lawyer representing Patriots receiver Antonio Brown has yet to give that advice to his client; instead, attorney Darren Heitner seems to be embracing the idea of exercising the right to respond to the lawsuit for sexual assault and rape filed by Britney Taylor by turning the tables and suing her.Antonio Brown will leave no stone unturned and will aggressively defend himself, including exercising all of his rights in countersuits, Heitner declared on Twitter.On numerous occasions during 18 years of representing clients who had been sued, the clients denial of wrongdoing came with anger. That anger manifested itself in a desire to make the person who filed the lawsuit experience the same helpless frustration that comes with being on the wrong end of a claim for monetary damages. Every time the client expressed a desire to proceed in that manner Authentic Joejuan Williams Jersey , I talked them out of it.In most cases, theres not much money to be obtained from the person filing the initial lawsuit. In most cases, a countersuit creates even harder feelings, making it more difficult to find an acceptable resolution short of a jury trial, if the respective strengths and weaknesses of the two opposing views of reality eventually make a compromise the right thing for everyone. Most importantly, if the situation goes sideways in court, the vindictiveness that flows from mounting a defense so aggressive that it includes suing the alleged victim of misconduct can spark a runaway jury Joejuan Williams Jersey Boys , since it makes the defendant seem like someone who would indeed engage in predatory behavior.In Browns case, the best move will be to refrain from filing a countersuit. The best move would be to defend the case on the merits, without trying to exact revenge in a way that will potentially make him look mean, aggressive, and ultimately capable of the things hes accused of doing.While for some lawyers a countersuit becomes a standard approach to defending a client because it potentially scares away a plaintiff and/or softens the plaintiff up to take less money in settlement, in a situation like this there are other angles to consider. Britney Taylor already has made clear her willingness to cooperate with the NFL, and the NFL already has said it will investigate. Hollow threats of countersuits may serve only to strengthen her resolve to share her experience with the league office which could make it more difficult for Brown to avoid punishment from the league Youth Irving Fryar Jerseys , and potentially banishment from the Patriots.Or maybe it really will scare her away, if shes not telling the truth about Brown. Still, if shes not telling the truth about Brown, its far better to focus on proving that her story is wrong than trying to bully her into submission.

    Last week Replica Darwin Thompson Jersey , Kansas City G.M. Brett Veach hinted that the Chiefs would be proposing a significant change to the overtime rules, one that would have given the Chiefs an opportunity to possess the ball after New England scored a touchdown on the first drive of overtime in the AFC Championship. As it turns out, the Chiefs are proposing much more than that.The NFL has unveiled the rules changes proposed by the clubs, and the Chiefs have suggested three changes to overtime.First, both teams would have an opportunity to possess the ball at least once in overtime, even if the first team to possess the ball in overtime scores a touchdown.Second, overtime would be eliminated for the preseason.Third, the overtime coin toss would be eliminated Stitched Darwin Thompson Jersey , and the team that wins the initial coin toss would have the option to kick or receive, or to select which goal to defend.The fact that the Chiefs have proposed these rule changes means that the Competition Committee has decided not to do so, which will make it harder as a practical matter to muster the 24 necessary votes from the 32 teams. But each of these changes make plenty of sense.The first proposal could lead to more regular-season ties, but it would definitely provide a more equitable approach to postseason overtime. Perhaps the better approach would be to keep the current rules in place for regular-season games, or perhaps revert to sudden death. For the postseason, its definitely more fair to give both teams a chance to possess the ball.The issue first emerged nine years ago, when a first-drive field goal gave the Saints a berth in the Super Bowl, over the Vikings. After adopting in March 2010 a rule that guarantees a possession for the team that kicked off to start overtime if the receiving team scores a field goal in postseason games Darwin Thompson Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , the league extended the rule in May of that year to the regular season.Super Bowl LI ended with the Patriots winning the coin toss to start overtime and scoring a first-drive touchdown. That didnt prompt any push to change the rules, however. Two years later, New Englands ability to drive the length of the field and to score a touchdown while keeping the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes from getting a chance to match or beat the touchdown raised questions about the fairness of the approach.The questions emerged for good reasons; the current rule isnt fair to the team that loses the toss of a coin. And those who would shout play defense! are essentially the same who consistently complain about rules changes that have made it easier for offenses to move the ball. Given that the playing field is indeed tilted toward the offense, a touchdown drive to open overtime shouldnt end the game especially in the playoffs. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said he was deeply disturbed by audio of Tyreek Hill discussing injuries to his 3-year-old son but declined to elaborate on the case citing an ongoing criminal investigation.The most visible face of the Chiefs ownership family, Hunt spoke briefly with reporters Saturday while the team was holding its annual draft party. He declined to discuss the teams plans for Hill but did acknowledge that the star wide receivers legal problems are an embarrassment for the team.It is obviously a tough situation for the organization, Hunt said.Hill has been suspended from all team-related activities after audio surfaced Wednesday in which he discusses abusing his son. Hill also told his fiancee, Crystal Espinal Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , that she should be terrified of him during an 11-minute discussion that took place in a Dubai airport.The audio surfaced one day after prosecutors declined to press charges against Hill following a domestic violence investigation. They said at the time that they were convinced a crime had occurred, but were unable to determine whether it was Hill or Espinal that hurt their son.Prosecutors reopened the case on Friday after receiving the audio from a local TV station.Hunt said the team was conducting its own investigation, though its unclear how much information that Johnson County District Attorneys office will make available. The NFL is also involved in the case, and its possible that Roger Goodell could place Hill on the commissioners exempt list.We were deeply disturbed by the audio, which we heard on Thursday, and thats why hes not with the organization at this point, Hunt said, and we expect that will be the case until we have a chance to work through whatever information we are able to get.There has been speculation that the Chiefs could release Hill once this weekends NFL draft is over Discount Darwin Thompson Jersey , but Hunt declined to discuss those internal deliberations. He did say that there are a couple of ongoing investigations relating to Tyreek and were going to have to let that process play out.The Chiefs have been lambasted by fans league-wide for their history in domestic violence cases. In 2012, linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend before driving to the team facility and committing suicide. And last year, the Chiefs quickly cut star running back Kareem Hunt when video surfaced of him shoving and kicking a woman in an Ohio hotel hallway.Hill was drafted by the Chiefs and then-GM John Dorsey despite numerous red flags. He had been kicked off the team at Oklahoma State after punching Espinal while she was pregnant, and many teams said off the record that the incident caused them to take Hill off their draft boards altogether.Dorsey and Chiefs coach Andy Reid insisted at the time that they did due diligence in selecting Hill, and that they were confident that he would make the most of a second chance.Before you are given the opportunity for a second chance, you better be doing the right things, Reid said. We have a great support system here for that, with quality people. We feel good that he is trying to right a wrong a big wrong. It is a big wrong Super Bowl Darwin Thompson Jersey , but he is trying to do better and be a better person for it. That part, we feel very confident in.Hunt said that the Chiefs have not necessarily changed how they vet players, whether in the draft or acquired through trades and free agency. But he did admit there is risk with every player.Could be his playing ability. Could be things that distract him off the field as well as the trouble they get into, Hunt said. Thats a risk you take. Its something that as a franchise we have to be willing to own when it doesnt go the right way. Thats something I believe in.
