Three takeaways from Eagles’ impressive win over Redskins

Carson Wentz did not throw four touchdown passes in a single game at all last season.

The second-year Eagles quarterback has done it twice this year after tossing four scoring strikes in Monday’s 34-24 win over the visiting Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field.

2. The Eagles are the team to beat in the NFC — The Eagles now have a season sweep over the Redskins (3-4) and own a win over playoff contender Carolina. Despite losing Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters on Monday, the Eagles never flinched once they took the lead before halftime.

3. Don’t count the Redskins out — The Redskins are 3-3, but were in charge of Monday’s game until multiple offensive line injuries disrupted the offense. Washington is hoping to get Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman back next week and, as long as the knee injuries to starting tackle Trent Williams and guard Brandon Scherff aren’t serious, the Redskins have enough talent around Kirk Cousins to make a playoff push.

Arizona could benefit this year from a new rule the NFL instituted in May that allows teams to bring two players off injured reserve in the same season.

Among the seven Cardinals currently on IR are Palmer and running back David Johnson, whom Arians has projected to return around Thanksgiving.

Those two could likely be the players Arizona designates to return this season. Arians called the decision on whom to bring back “tough.”

The Cardinals (3-4) will turn over the offense to backup Drew Stanton when practice resumes on Monday. The Cardinals have a bye this week.

Third quarterback Blaine Gabbert will become the backup. The Cardinals signed former Chargers and Arizona State quarterback Mike Bercovici to their practice squad.chargers_129

Jarvis Landry Jersey cleared by NFL in domestic assault case, report says

Elite Kyle Van Noy Jersey Does Cousins even want to be in D.C. for the next 10 years? Former Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan, who declined comment for this story, reportedly tried to sign Cousins to a long-term deal before 2016. But the initial offer, according to people briefed on it, was $12 million a year, and Cousins was insulted. He would have signed if the team had offered a three-year deal at $19 million per, according to a source familiar with his thinking. Allen wouldn’t go higher than $16 million. The team felt as if it hadn’t seen enough, that he’d played only nine good games. Instead, it ended up paying Cousins significantly more when it had to franchise him.

I don’t think he could either. It came up a couple of days after, which is different, Jackson said. Those Authentic Matt Duffy Jersey things hit you like that. Sometimes you don’t know. You think you are catching a cold or something like that, you look up and you are not feeling well and wow, here it is. That is just the way these things work sometimes.

Jackson said no decision has been made as to whether or not Garrett will accompany the team to London for Sunday’s game against Minnesota.

Even if he is still in the protocol, Garrett could make the trip with the team, Jackson said, adding that the medical staff will help make that decision.

He can do that if we think it is best because again, I think you guys know these concussions are different degrees so I would hope that he can, but I don’t want to go on record of saying I know for sure he is (traveling), Jackson said. Let’s see where it is and then kind of go from there.

Garrett has four sacks in his first three games this season.

He will have the full attention of the Cardinals’ defense, according to defensive tackle Josh Mauro Jersey

He’s a really, really good back, Mauro said. He’s got really good size, speed, strength, vision and he can catch the ball, too, so he’s going to be a tough task to handle as a defense.

Adrian Peterson, scheduled to make his second start for the Cardinals after his trade form the New Orleans Saints, figures to offer just as much of a challenge to a Rams run defense that has allowed the fourth-most rushing yards in the league at an average of 139.5 per game.

Adrian Peterson is not Adrian Peterson in 2008, 2009, cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman said in the postgame locker room as a few stunned teammates looked on and listened. He’s not the same Adrian Peterson, and I think everybody knows that.

Goodell noted that only six or seven players are currently protesting during the national anthem and said the league is going to Hampus Lindholm Authentic Jersey work to make that number zero by addressing the underlying issues of those protests. He said owners expressed support for the efforts that players have identified and recognize these are important issues in our communities.

We want to make sure we are understanding what the players are talking about, Goodell said. And that is complex.

In a fun quirk of the schedule, the Falcons are in the midst of playing each of the four AFC East teams in a row. A less fun twist, if you’re a Falcons fan, at least, is that they’ve started the four-game stretch with home losses to Buffalo and Miami.

Despite the unexpected setbacks, the Falcons are still very much alive in the hunt for the playoffs, but that could change with another loss. They now have a 45 percent chance to make the playoffs and a 22 percent chance at the NFC South title. A win moves them to 59 percent for the playoffs and 30 percent for the division, while a loss brings those down to 38 percent and 18 percent, respectively.

NFL Week 6: Steelers vs. Chiefs features Tony Romo Jersey in the booth

Tony Romo has quickly become our favorite NFL play-by-play announcer. Romo’s love for the game is refreshing, and his perspective as a former quarterback adds so much depth to his commentary. This week, Romo will be in the booth for the second time this week to call Steelers vs. Chiefs, which should one of the best matchups of Week 6.

On Wednesday, Mariota told Wyatt he absolutely liked his chances to suit up against the Colts on Monday night. I feel a lot better. I have to give a lot of credit to the athletic staff, the training staff here. They’ve done a great job, and I am feeling good, Mariota said.

Running back Wendell Smallwood is also on track to play Monday night after missing the past two games with what he described as swelling in his knee. He practiced in full Tuesday, though it was a light session.

It didn’t bother me that much, Smallwood said. I’m working towards [playing on Monday]. I felt good today. Hopefully … I’ll get even better as the week goes on.

Limited Johnathan Cyprien Jersey Smallwood stepped into the role of primary third-down back after Darren Sproles was lost for the season. The Eagles backs had some issues in pass protection against Carolina. Smallwood’s return should help in the effort to keep quarterback Carson Wentz clean. It should also benefit a ground game that has been on a roll since Week 3 of the season.

Smallwood has been effective in spots when healthy, rushing for 113 yards on 29 carries (3.9 average) with a touchdown as part of a running back by committee approach.

The critical drop for the Rams came on a third down on the 20-yard line with less 10 seconds remaining. While it wasn’t the easiest catch to make, it was certainly one Kupp should’ve had and will leave a sour taste in the Rams’ mouths.

Goff went back to Kupp on fourth down, but the receiver was double covered and the pass fell short.

Redskins’ Chris Thompson: I’ve warned family about rowdy Eagles fans

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson once prayed in the end zone before a game at Philadelphia when a fan shouted at him — in mid-prayer — that God wasn’t going to help him that day.

“I was like, dang, all right, that’s a little harsh,” Thompson told ESPN980 Wednesday afternoon.

But not as harsh as what Thompson heard sometimes happens in the stands, which is why he doesn’t want his family to attend Monday night’s game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Ben Roethlisberger said after the game, “maybe I don’t have it anymore.” It was more a stream-of-consciousness moment than a declaration, but what’s clear is Roethlisberger took his five-interception performance hard. He said he needs to improve “everywhere.”

While the comments could be swept under the rug, it certainly is an eye-opening statement from a quarterback who has never questioned his abilities at any point in his career.

This is when most fans will wonder about Roethlisberger’s overall desire to play after contemplating retirement this offseason, and it brings to mind what ‘The Emperor’ Chuck Noll once said about retirement.

Noll would always say when you start thinking about retirement, you are probably already retired.

No one but Roethlisberger knows just what he has, and doesn’t have, in terms of desire at this stage in his career, but the team desperately needs his play to improve if the offense wants to ever get off the ground and make a run not just in the division, but in the NFL.

Until next week, with a chance to improve his game, fans will be wondering if Roethlisberger “has it” anymore.

Dolphins fans boo Jay Cutler Jersey and start ‘We want Moore’ chant

Dolphins fans are booing Jay Cutler in a game they’re up 10-3, in case you were wondering how things are going in Miami right now.

The woman said they continued to argue, in front of Elliott’s friend, about another guy she had been involved with while she and Elliott were broken up. She told police that the reason she and Elliott got back together in the first place was because he texted her frequently with messages like I can’t lose you, I love you.

Jack Doyle paced the Colts with a career-high 11 targets against the Titans on Monday night. Doyle hauled in seven of the passes for 50 yards and a score. Doyle has enjoyed a hefty target share (23.8 percent) when active this season, but the Colts’ offensive struggles without Andrew Luck have allowed him only one touchdown and inconsistent production. In five appearances, Doyle has finished better than 21st at the position twice. Doyle’s big usage keeps him in the streaming discussion, but he’s a poor Week 7 option against the Jaguars’ tough pass defense.

Late in the first quarter, CBS cameras showed Rick Lovato, when Romo said, And there’s Rick Lovato, Demi Lovato’s husband.

It was followed by some awkward silence, and an uncomfortably chuckling Jim Nantz.

You know how many people just picked up their phone and started a Google search on Rick Lovato? Nantz said.

That might have brought you to this post. Whether you were trying to figure out if Rick Lovato was actually married to Demi Lovato, or if you too thought this was a bad joke.

Ezekiel Elliott Jersey remains suspended after court denies NFLPA’s motion

Elite Youth Jermaine Kearse Jersey
Elliott’s six-game suspension is scheduled to start Sunday should it hold up in the New York court.

The strategy works so well because the NFL’s actions are often viewed unkindly by the courts, in particular actions against its players and especially when its disciplinary policies are at issue. Thus, Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension is back on hold as of Tuesday night, thanks to a second temporary restraining order preventing the start of the Cowboys running back’s six-game ban.

Elliott gets to play this weekend against the 49ers and, likely, the week after that against Washington. Well past a year since the NFL began investigating him over a domestic violence allegation, the fact that he’s eligible to play is still all everybody knows for certain.

What was not addressed in detail, per Jenkins, was whether the NFL and team owners will move to make standing during the anthem mandatory in the future with repercussions for franchises and players who don’t follow protocol.

Very, very, very little was about the actual anthem, Jenkins said. We’re really talking more about solutions and how we get the results that we want to get.

Division rivals are meeting to gain an early edge, teams are facing make-or-break games trying to stop losing streaks and presumed powers are beginning new realities without their star players. In Week 7, all of that manages to take a back seat to the Super Bowl rematch … and more references to 28-3 than a franchise, a city and a fan base will be able to stand.

So, you don’t have to skip the entire schedule and save your energy for Falcons-Patriots on Sunday night, but you’d be forgiven if you did. To make things even spicier, both teams are staggering a little bit, more than they expected at this point. The loser will be leaning further toward crisis than they were before.

Mariota finds Taywan Taylor Jersey for a 53-yard scoring pass.

Elite Womens T.J. Ward Jersey
Three weeks ago, the NFL’s partner TV networks refused to show angry fans booing protesting players. Now, these worried networks are refusing to show any protests during the national anthem at all.

The details of the NFL’s and teams’ refusal to sign Kaepernick and their reaction to players’ protests during the national anthem, Grieb added, do not count as a clear preponderance of the evidence (as described in Articles 17 of the collective bargaining agreement) that any of them — by definition, two or more teams, or the league and at least one team — agreed to keep Kaepernick out of the league.

However, she added, one could assume he’s got some sort of smoking gun. The MLB Players Association won its collusion case against the owners in the 1980s because it caught the owners discussing it. Without one, even bringing a case is hardly practical.

The idea of Sunday’s game in FedEx Field being Cousins’ chance to show off for Shanahan was still enticing. All things considered, he did more than enough to prove he was worth all the fuss. His good moments were pretty good, his bad ones were minimized, and he gave a glimpse of the running ability that ideally enhances Shanahan’s system so well. His legs provided Washington (3-2) with the eventual winning points in a 26-24 victory.
Game Womens Eric Gordon Jersey
On the other hand, it was only 26-24, when Washington had led 14-0 when Shanahan yanked Hoyer (and deservedly so) and 17-0 after Beathard had produced the fifth straight Niners punt to start the game.

Indians, Edwin Encarnacion optimistic about DH’s status for Game 5

Indians designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion told ESPN’s Marly Rivera that he believes he will be in the lineup for the decisive Game 5 of the American League Division Series against the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

Encarnacion has been out since Game 2, when he landed awkwardly while retreating to second base on a line-drive double play.

“I feel very good,” he told ESPN after Tuesday’s workout. “I ran, I hit, and did everything we deemed necessary to evaluate if I can play tomorrow. Me being in the lineup tomorrow is what we all want; it’s what I want. Tomorrow I’m coming in early to do my treatment and follow up and do everything I did today in order to be ready for the game.”

Speaking before the workout, Cleveland manager Terry Francona also said he was optimistic that Encarnacion would play.

What happened? Wallace started in Week 2 of the 2010 season after Jake Delhomme was injured and went 1-3 before being sidelined himself with a sprained ankle. He went 0-3 the following year before being released in the 2012 offseason.

The stakes: The Indians won 102 games. They had — by far — the largest run differential in the majors. They had that 22-game winning streak and finished the season on a 33-4 run. They haven’t lost three games in a row since Aug. 1. Jose Ramirez, the major league leader in extra-base hits, is 2-for-17 without an extra-base hit or an RBI. Francisco Lindor is 1-for-14, granted that one hit was a big one. They have the likely AL Cy Young winner going, but he’s coming off one of the worst starts in his career. They’re at home. Oh, and the franchise hasn’t won a World Series since 1948. I think Indians fans are already throwing up from nervousness.

Marcus Mariota Jersey injury update: Titans QB feeling ‘a lot better,’ hopes to play in Week 6

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is aiming to return to the lineup this week when Tennessee plays the Colts on Monday Night Football.
Stephen Curry Authentic Jersey
It’s just kind of going to take it day-by-day, see how I feel, Mariota told reporters Wednesday. Hopefully toward the end of the week I get more on my plate and hopefully I’ll feel comfortable to try to play on Monday.

Kraft confesses he is still open to investing in a Premier League side though the lack of restrictions on wages makes it difficult for him to see clear benefits.
Doug Baldwin Authentic Jersey
I like to win at whatever I do, he told BBC Sport. But without a salary cap I’m concerned that we might be at a disadvantage.

We helped found MLS in America. Our league here is starting to really develop, and with our soccer team we’ve gone to the championship game five times in 21 years.

I’m just concerned in the Premier League that we might not, with all the different ways of operating, we’re not as familiar with all of them.

Let’s say people from all over the world come in and buy teams and maybe they have different reasons for doing it and managing it. And you have to compete with that and I’m not sure. But I’m still intrigued.

Right now, they’re throwing me back in there slowly. And I think once this week goes by and I’m able to handle what they’re giving me, I think my role will grow more and more every week, he said.
