Tony Romo! Eli Manning! Who throws the game-breaking interception that loses the game? Matt Ufford and the Uffsides crew preview Week 12’s games and make their picks.
Before I get started, do not misconstrue what I’m about to say to link it to the recent bullying conversation. I certainly am not. Thing is, I don’t understand good teams having bad seasons without somebody getting in one of his teammates’ faces.
You can spout off about sticking together and all that but at some point when the same guy or guys keep screwing up over and over and it is costing you games, somebody has to stand up and say so. And when they say so it might not be the nicest conversation. From all that I have seen Johnson works his butt off, plays extremely hard, produces and holds himself to a high standard, so I don’t have a problem at all with him holding someone else to a high standard as well.
For some of these teams that are a lot more talented than their record would suggest, I would almost recommend some arguments on the sideline because iron sharpens iron. Guys need to know that playing like crap isn’t going to cut it and many times that message is hammered home more clearly by a teammate than by a coach. If a guy isn’t doing his job it might be time to, metaphorically of course, put boots to asses, as The Rock would say, and challenge them to get their stuff together.
A team that reaches an all-time peak and loses its head coach is guaranteed to regress. It applies to Western Kentucky. It is not the hottest of takes to suggest that the Broncos are not going to go 13-1 in 2017.
Robert Griffin III is in line for this season’s “Box of Chocolates” award – you never know what you’re going to get. After two straight strong weeks, Griffin was taking mincing geisha steps any time a defender was in the neighborhood and missing wide-open downfield throws by five yards or more.

For those of you who didn’t have a Sega Genesis console in the mid-90s: Mutant League Football was a video game in which the human athletes were replaced by zombies, aliens and various mutated super-humans. Its philosophical premise was, “Sure, football’s violent. But what if it were MORE violent?” And so you could wire the ball to detonate, deliver an electric shock to offensive players, and even bribe or murder the referee (thanks for the inspiration, South American soccer!). Things like this happened:
We had some of our coaches playing one another this past week. Frazier’s Vikings fought gamely, but they fell to Garrett and the Cowboys. Minnesota kept it close throughout, but ultimately fell when they surrendered a touchdown to Dwayne Harris with 35 seconds remaining.
It’s best we don’t spend too much time talking about Allen and the Raiders. They allowed backup quarterback Nick Foles to become starting quarterback Nick Foles, given that he threw seven touchdowns. SEVEN TOUCHDOWNS! Yeah … not a strong game from Allen and his Raiders.
Tomlin and the Steelers managed to put up 31 points, but they were never at a point where they were going to win the game as New England put up 55 points of their own. And lastly, Schiano and his Buccaneers remained winless on the season … but they actually played well, for one half. They led the Seahawks 24-14 heading into halftime, but eventually lost, 27-24.

The Sonic at 2707 NW Vivion Road closes at midnight, which is something Dwayne Bowe did not know. That night, he was brought to the Riverside, Mo., police department without incident; his case is on its way to being closed. This story, though, is not over. We owe it not just to the truth, but to ourselves 鈥?to open every door, to interrupt the dark, to shine a light without fear of what it might show us.
Baltimore stopped its three-game slide with an impressive overtime win over the Bengals. This 4-5 Ravens team is very difficult to figure out, as they continue to swing between extremes — but one constant is how they’ve played games close. Four of the team’s five losses have come by one score or less, and this could be a very different AFC North if the ball bounced a little differently.
The Cincinnati Bengals should be quietly concerned about Andy Dalton. There are times the third-year quarterback looks like he has all the tools, even appearing like he’s taken the step into elite status — then games like Sunday’s happen. In four games he’s posted a passer rating of 100 or more, and in three games he’s posted less than 60.0. In each of the last two weeks, Dalton looks like he’s regressed and the team needs to determine why he has been so inconsistent in 2017.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is still one or two weeks from being able to return to the field, reports the NFL Network’s Albert Breer.
Vick will once again be inactive on Sunday while dealing with a hamstring injury that has kept out of three games so far this season. The veteran quarterback was initially injured on Oct. 6 against the New York Giants and then returned on Oct. 27 against the same team, passing for 30 yards before being forced to leave once more.

Nick Foles is expected to once again be back under center for the Eagles, who rebounded from a horrific performance against the Dallas Cowboys to enjoy the best game of his career last week against the Oakland Raiders. Foles led the Eagles to a 49-20 rout, putting up 406 yards and tying an NFL record with seven touchdown passes in the game.
Elite Womens Matt Kalil Jersey The Eagles face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday while attempting to chase the Cowboys for the top spot in the division, with kickoff set for 1 p.m. ET.
Limited Youth Robert Alford Jersey New England on Friday traded its second-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft for Panthers defensive end Kony Ealy and a third-round pick, the teams announced. New England drops from the 64th to 72nd overall selection in the draft with the deal.
We are past all the issues that were present early on in these discussions as to whether or not the funding would be available to cover the kinds of unique expenses we have in hockey that the other sports don’t have,” Fehr said.
You can keep having conversations and hope that something comes out of it which allows you to find a way to reach a resolution. You don’t artificially cut off discussions and you don’t say if that isn’t it, you’ll take your gym bag and go home. You basically stay at it in one fashion or another until you get there.”
The NHLPA, NHL, IIHF and IOC met early last month in New York, but haven’t met since and no talks are currently scheduled.
Not formally,” Fehr said. You know, I talk to Rene every so often about things, I’m sure Gary (Bettman) or Bill (Daly) does too. There are no meetings scheduled formally yet. Rene has been spending most of his time going to and from South Korea lately anyway. So, we’ll see.”
The question is, how long is left in the process?
Elite Womens Nick Foligno Jersey Fehr said what amounted to effectively a two-year extension of the agreement didn’t interest the NHLPA.
As Fehr pointed out, the original issues which produced the Olympic stalemate — covering the costs for player travel and contract insurance — have been taken care of, according to IIHF president Rene Fasel.

The division-rival Jets and AFC-rival Steelers expressed interest, but Hightower ultimately re-signed with New England after his best NFL season.
I love how the grey pops, they make me feel good out there.
As a kid, I can remember that feeling when I got a fresh pair of basketball shoes, either as a blessing from mom or from selling candy as a fundraising initiative. Rocking those new kicks was a feeling of accomplishment, that made you feel like you belonged on the court. For some of today is college hoopers, in an amateurish setting that tries to strip one is individuality, finding that feel good oftentimes means thinking outside the box. Either by adding motivational reminders on their feet or by wearing shoes not meant for the faint of heart.
Foster, with a drawl that pays homage to his Texoma roots, smacked his hands in frustration in the locker room while reflecting on the loss.
I wish we would have won, I had way more heat I wanted to show to the world.
Andrew McCutchen gave Team USA some breathing room with a two-run double in the eighth, and Luke Gregerson pitched a perfect ninth to close it out.
This is the second time in four editions of the WBC that the United States has advanced to the semifinals. It lost to Japan in 2009.
The Dominican players, who rallied to beat the United States one week earlier in Miami in the first round, will disperse back to big league camps. They finished 1-2 in the second round after going 3-0 in the opening round.
Elite Mens Quintin Demps Jersey Earlier Saturday, Puerto Rico completed a 3-0 run through Pool F by beating Venezuela 13-2.

The championship game is Wednesday night.
“I saw the replay after the game. It was a hell of catch,” he added.
The Raiders have interest, and it’s not just in Lynch, after Latavius Murray signed with Minnesota during free agency. Free agent Adrian Peterson, who likes the team’s playoff potential, also remains a possibility for Oakland, sources told ESPN.
Elite Mens Tom Johnson Jersey “In September of 2015, I started feeling weakness in my left hand,” Clark wrote. “I was mildly paying attention to it because since my playing days, I’ve constantly had pain in my neck. I was thinking it was related to some kind of nerve damage because it would just come and go.
“After months of tests and treatment, I got some bad news,” he continued. “I was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. I have ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Those words are still very hard for me to say.”

Which is to say that taking a deep three-pointer with almost four seconds still on the clock, when you need two points to win and your team has missed 22 three-pointers including its last four, and your best attacks have come from going inside to Spencer Weisz ¡ª who could try to draw a foul or create confusion before kicking the ball out ¡ª is a bad decision.
It¡¯s always felt as though Lynch needed Oakland, and that was where he¡¯d truly be happy. Not that he wasn¡¯t in Seattle ¡ª he found success, both in a football sense and financially, and a team that looked to him as a locker room leader. But as the team grew more successful, with more attention, Lynch grew more standoffish.
In Oakland, though, Lynch would be able to drive home each night, be even closer to the community, and play in front of a crowd of adoring hometown fans on Sundays. It¡¯s a pretty good deal for a last run.
How Lynch¡¯s career ended left something to be desired, too. After making it through most of his career without missing serious time, Lynch was plagued by an abdomen injury that required surgery, forcing him to miss half the season. He returned for a playoff game against the Panthers, but didn¡¯t play a huge role in it, before hanging up the cleats in the middle of Carolina¡¯s Super Bowl loss.

The Golden State Warriors hadn’t lost three straight regular season games since November 2013. That changed on Saturday, when the Warriors faced San Antonio on the road while resting three of their five starters. Golden State lost that game, 107-85, and now cling to a slight advantage in the Western Conference standings.
After Friday’s 103-102 loss to the Timberwolves, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced that Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala would rest on the following night. Of course, Kevin Durant remains out with his knee injury.
The Seahawks met with Eddie Lacy on Saturday, and they will welcome Latavius Murray to Seattle on Monday. They also have plans to bring Jamaal Charles in for a visit, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Peterson is coming off a knee injury that kept him sidelined for most of the last season. At 31, it’s unlikely Peterson will be as productive as he was in his prime, but that could be fine in the Seahawks offense.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said at the combine that the Seahawks prefer to have multiple running backs featured in Seattle’s offense. It wouldn’t fall on Peterson to carry the whole load.
“I’ve always thought that’s really valuable when you can have two guys or three guys that you can work and we have not had any hesitation going back to our college days,” Carroll said. “If there’s a guy that’s so dominant that nobody else deserves the play time then you’ve got a great one. But I don’t think it’s any more so today than ever before. We have always been an advocate of like a 1-2 punch kind of formula.”
