Chiefs’ Daniel Sorensen Jersey appears to throw vicious punch at Chargers WR

Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen was caught on camera performing an odd swinging/punch motion in an effort to tackle Chargers receiver Tyrell Williams.

Sorensen wasn’t penalized for the play, but that could just be because the ref didn’t see it.

An argument could be made he was attempting to force a fumble, but he didn’t make much of an effort on the ball. It was also a very extreme motion downwards, that if landed in the right area, could cause some damage.

This could be a play the NFL takes a look at during the week. If so, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see Sorensen get fined.

On the next possession the Eagles punted, and two plays later, the Giants led. Manning hit a tight window on a play-action pass and found Sterling Shepard for what should have simply been a first down, only for third-string safety Chris Maragos to crash in with a terrible angle and miss his tackle. Maragos’ miss knocked Patrick Robinson off Shepard’s trail, which was all the space the second-year receiver needed to put the Giants ahead.

Limited Youth Sergio Romo Jersey A stop and a running game might have been enough for the Giants to seal the win, but they made mental mistakes down the stretch. Eli Apple, who has struggled mightily during his second season, was drawn into a long pass interference penalty against the King of Pass Interference, Torrey Smith, setting up a tying Eagles touchdown. On the ensuing drive, the Giants thought they had a free play and a third-down conversion in the red zone with an Eagles player struggling to get off the field, but John Jerry was whistled for holding the defender down and preventing him from getting off the field, marking the most successful block made by a Giants offensive lineman in 2017.

Desmond Trufant Jersey reveals how he got the best of Aaron Rodgers Jersey (twice)

Desmond Trufant is calling this year his “comeback season.” Atlanta’s top cornerback landed on injured reserve last year with a shoulder injury. If the Falcons’ home opener was any indication, Trufant is back in a big way.

It’s not easy to force Aaron Rodgers into mistakes, but the Falcons did, on a Trufant pick and a scoop-and-score that helped seal the Falcons’ win.

Authentic Kids Demarcus Walker Jersey “Which one? Yeah, there were so many,” Trufant joked when asked about the turnovers.

The Jaguars had a nice outing in Week 1 against the Texans — who were a mess. The Jaguars rolled over them on the road, after Tom Savage couldn’t get the Texans offense going and was benched in the second half for rookie Deshaun Watson.

Authentic Kids Matt Garza Jersey The Jaguars were high in our hope rankings after their performance (No. 3), which included 10 sacks by the defense and 100 yards from Leonard Fournette. However, after their Week 2 performance, they dropped down to No. 25. Blake Bortles went 20-of-24 for 223 yards, one touchdown, and two picks. Not too hot.

No fear, Jaguars fans. If Blake Bortles doesn’t work out, there’s always Chad Henne or Ryan Nassib.

Panic index: Chad Henne and Ryan Nassib aren’t actually good other options! It doesn’t look like any other moves are going to be made at cornerback, and NFL defenses might eat the offense up all season. Sunday might not be all that fun if you’re a Jags fan.

Stefon Diggs celebrates a TD with an homage to Vikings legend Randy Moss

Stefon Diggs scored a touchdown on Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints, and he celebrated. But it wasn’t any old celebration. It was an homage to Randy Moss.

The timing couldn’t have been better, because the Vikings inducted Moss into the team’s Ring of Honor on Monday night. Moss was in attendance, so he also got to enjoy Diggs’ celebration.

Moss’ celebration symbolized his ability to split the defense, and could he ever. Diggs did the same to the Saints on his 18-yard touchdown, and he celebrated accordingly. He then took it right into a Milly Rock.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted that Gronkowski’s injury doesn’t seem to be serious, but he will receive tests on Monday to make sure.

What this means for Gronkowski: Gronkowski has dealt with injury problems his entire career, including back issues that eliminated complete seasons both in college and as a pro. Any time the dynamic tight end limps off the field is cause for major concern.

What this means for the Patriots: New England can’t keep its playmakers on the field. The Pats had only three receivers at their disposal Sunday thanks to injuries to Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.

Losing Gronkowski takes away their biggest mismatch weapon and punches a big hole in an already paper-thin receiving corps. Chris Hogan, one of the team’s three active receivers, also appeared to be playing through injury. Receiver Phillip Dorsett and running back Rex Burkhead also left with injuries.nike_cardinals_311

As expected, Jacquizz Rodgers Jersey proved to be the Buccaneers’ lead back in place of Doug Martin in Week 2.

Rodgers carried the ball 19 times but wasn’t targeted on 31 snaps. Peyton Barber benefited from garbage time en route to 10 carries on 15 snaps. Charles Sims was the team’s passing-down specialist, with the Bucs running a pass play on 19 of his 21 snaps. The Bucs will have their hands full with a tough Vikings defense in Week 3, so only Rodgers should be considered for a flex spot. Sims has some appeal in deep PPR leagues. Doug Martin will be back in Week 5 and figures to push Rodgers to the bench.

Adrian Peterson, RB, Saints: For the second consecutive week, Peterson was used in a limited role, following up his 1.8 PPR fantasy points of Week 1 with 2.6 on Sunday. Those now represent his third- and fourth-worst single-game performances in his 125-game NFL career. Saints coach Sean Payton is clearly using a committee approach in his backfield, and those who drafted Peterson need to re-evaluate him as more of a borderline flex play when the matchup is right.
Chad Kelly Jersey

Charles Clay, TE, Buffalo Bills: After his 15.3 PPR fantasy point performance in the opener, Clay became one of the week’s more popular pickups, his ownership percentage going from 10.0 percent of ESPN leagues in Week 1 to 33.7 percent on Sunday. Thankfully, he was started in only 17.7 percent, perhaps recognizing his challenging matchup, which resulted in a mere 2.3 non-PPR and 5.3 PPR fantasy points for Clay.

NFL award predictions 2017: J.J. Watt Jersey comes back as lock for Man of the Year

Here’s a look at all of Sporting News’ predictions for this season’s major individual NFL awards.
Elite Mens Dezmen Southward Jersey
End of first quarter. The first 15 minutes were all Cowboys, who ran 26 plays compared to six for the Giants. Dallas also held a 136-4 total yards advantage. The quarter ended with Dallas driving in New York territory.

Field goal. The first points in the game came with 6:28 to play in the first quarter. The Cowboys’ second drive of the game stalled in the red zone, where Dak Prescott failed to connect with Dez Bryant on three consecutive pass attempts from the 3-yard line. Dan Bailey made 21-yard field goal to give Dallas the lead. The score capped a nine-play, 51-yard drive. 3-0, Cowboys.

Kickoff. The Cowboys won the toss and elected to receive. Cowboys rookie Ryan Switzer returned the kick to his own 24-yard line.

The Giants, wearing their home blue tops and grey bottoms, wrapped up their pregame warmups.

It’s hardly as if the Ravens have a great pass rush, and after this, the Bengals face the Texans and the Packers, who have multiple threats to rack up double-digit sacks in 2017. Four interceptions or not, the missing pass protection might be enough to torpedo Dalton and the Bengals.
Elite Mens Wendell Smallwood Jersey
That one has to even ask if it is unfair to judge Beckham under these premises, for the choices he makes off the field, or for not taking failure well, tells you all you need to know about said questions.

NFL fans upset after Seahawks’ Jeremy Lane Jersey is controversially ejected vs. Packers

Jeremy Lane didn’t last very long in the Seahawks’ first game of the season.

Authentic Kids Sergei Fedorov Jersey During an interception return by teammate Nazair Jones, Lane and Packers receiver Davante Adams got tangled up. Adams grabbed Lane by the facemask and brought him down. Adams wasn’t penalized at all.

Perhaps one way to fix this is allow referees to review ejection penalties, kind of like what college does with targeting. Look the play over, make sure the initial ruling was accurate, and then make a decision based on all of the evidence available.

On the other side, Jabrill Peppers will offer excitement in the return game and at safety for Browns, and tight end David Njoku could develop into a frightening mismatch for opposing defenses as the year progresses.

Authentic Kids A. J. Cann Jersey Bell didn’t play in the preseason, but he’ll make his debut against the Browns. In five career games against Cleveland, Bell has 507 rushing yards, 190 receiving yards and six total TDs. That will keep fantasy owners happy, but how many carries will Bell get?

The Lima, Ohio, native returns to Cleveland again. He’s 20-2 against the Browns. Roethlisberger is the quarterback that got away, and he’s haunted Cleveland ever since.

Roethlisberger’s offseason was full of not-so-loose retirement talk. How much longer will the window be open for the future Hall of Famer to take the Steelers to the Super Bowl? This is the first step in finding out.

Patriots replacing ‘soft’ turf at Gillette Stadium after blowout loss, injuries

The Patriots, who just got new turf at Gillette Stadium in May, are changing their playing surface once again.

Work began Sunday and the turf had been removed by Monday afternoon. The new turf is expected to be ready in time for the Patriots’ next home game, Sept. 24 against the Texans. It’s the third surface the facility has had since March 2014.

A Patriots spokesperson told ESPN the turf did not meet the team’s standards, even though it met NFL and MLS safety standards. The Pats share the stadium with the New England Revolution.

X-rays taken Sunday confirmed a dislocated ankle for Darby, but no break. The third-year cornerback, acquired by the Eagles last month in a trade with the Bills, was covering Redskins tight end Jordan Reed when he appeared to step on Reed’s foot. Darby collapsed and immediately grasped at his ankle.

Darby will not need surgery and could return to the field when the Eagles face the Redskins again on Monday, Oct. 23.

“It was tough to see him go down, but we had to rebound and I think we did that,” cornerback Jalen Mills said following Sunday’s win. “He’s our brother and we’re going to be with him no matter what the injury is like. He’s going to come back at some point. Until he does come back, we have to fill in around him.”bears_007-223x223

Cole Beasley Authentic Jersey already has the catch of the 2017 season

We’re not even through Week 1, and the Cowboys’ Cole Beasley already has the catch of the 2017 season. Beasley blew us all away with this one.

During the fourth quarter of the Cowboys’ season opener against the Giants on Sunday Night Football, Beaasley managed to catch a ball off of the nameplate on his jersey. Yes, his back.

He bobbles the ball one-handed, traps it on his back, gets control, makes sure both feet are down, and that’s a catch.

It takes a remarkable amount of concentration and coordination to do all of this at once while making sure he has control of the ball so it will be ruled a catch. A tip of the cap to Beasley for a really incredible play.

The Cowboys are taking care of business against the Giants and are leading the Giants 16-3. Beasley has three catches for 32 yards so far, but this was definitely the most memorable one of the night — and maybe for the whole season.
Elite Womens Daimion Stafford Jersey
Mike Gillislee, RB, Patriots: His Patriots debut was an exceptional one, as he managed 22.5 PPR (and non-PPR) fantasy points on Thursday, easily setting new personal bests in both departments. More important, he received all four carries on Patriots plays within three yards of the goal line, cementing his status as the replacement for LeGarrette Blount in that role.
Elite Womens Travis Benjamin Jersey
Kenny Golladay, WR, Lions: He was one of the reasons for Stafford’s comeback performance, and Golladay’s 22.9 PPR and 18.9 non-PPR fantasy points were the most by any wide receiver in an NFL debut since Allen Hurns’ 27.0 and 23.0 in 2014 Week 1 and the 19th- and 17th-most by a debuting wideout since 1950. Though there was some chatter that TJ Jones might cut into Golladay’s snaps to begin the season, Golladay squelched those worries, making him a likely top Week 2 pickup in the 95.4 percent of ESPN leagues in which he is available.

Mike Zimmer insists Vikings focused on beating Saints, not ‘Adrian Peterson Jersey’

Adrian Peterson’s return to Minnesota to face his former team is rich in entertainment value, spectacle and hype.

That bodes well for a week’s worth of storylines for broadcast crews, media and fans.

But apparently not so much for the teams playing in that prime-time matchup next Monday.

Inside Vikings team headquarters, Minnesota’s Week 1 opener against New Orleans isn’t being viewed as a momentous or even controversial occasion, despite the chatter that has circulated across the NFL about Peterson’s wanting to stick it to his former team during his homecoming.

Limited Kids Anthony Barr Jersey I hope we have a chip on our shoulder, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. This game isn’t about Adrian Peterson. It’s about the Vikings and the Saints. They’ve got a lot of great offensive weapons. He’s a great player, but this game isn’t about Adrian Peterson.

Michael Ferland Womens Jersey There’s also a solid-gray Color Rush design. At first it seemed the Lions wouldn’t be wearing it in 2017 (which would be just as well — it’s a stinker) because they aren’t scheduled for a Thursday night game this season. But it turns out that they’ll wear it for a Saturday afternoon game Dec. 16 against the Bears.

the team has kept quiet about the recovery of Andrew Luck Jersey and Jim Irsay suggested Friday that the problem is in Luck’s head.

Why would the Colts make the trade? Indianapolis has made an apparent and obvious effort to distance the franchise from the moves made by Ryan Grigson as much as possible. In the first months after Chris Ballard was hired he parted ways with Dwayne Allen, Patrick Robinson, D’Qwell Jackson and allowed plenty of other Grigson acquistions to walk in free agency.

Shipping off Dorsett — sunk costs in the eyes of the franchise — looked to be in the cards for a while. In addition to the Patriots, the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens were also reportedly in the running for the receiver.

But the compensation for the receiver is what makes it an odd move for the Colts. For months, the team has kept quiet about the recovery of Andrew Luck and Jim Irsay suggested Friday that the problem is in Luck’s head.

Haden is a starter for the Browns defense, and Erving can be a backup for the team at several positions. Improving the roster in the future is great and all, but the Browns would like to win games in 2017 and draft picks in 2018 aren’t going to help that cause.
Elite Youth Mike Adams Jersey
Trading them for players wouldn’t make too much sense either, unless those players are young pieces that can continue to reshape the roster for the future.

Elite Youth Nate Sudfeld Jersey There’s no union, there’s nobody to stand up to them and say ‘Hey look, stop being selfish pricks. Break off this money,’ Mitrione said. You can’t give us 15 percent of the total revenue and think that’s enough money. Can’t do it. Break off 45 to 55 percent, you guys keep your 45 to 55 percent, and let’s have a real job here.

There’s so much money that was made in the UFC and that money wasn’t divvied up properly. If it was, all the NFL washouts who are MMA hopefuls would have a viable career in something other than football. Where they could make legitimate money, comparable money, or even more and go forward from there.
