Atlanta couldn’t get into the end zone, but the Falcons had a couple of field goal attempts.

Fog started rolling into the stadium in the second quarter, and it got thicker and heavier as the game went on. It made it a challenge for both Tom Brady and Matt Ryan to connect on deep passes. With Atlanta playing from behind, the fog was a particular problem for the Falcons.

Matt Bryant is generally reliable. He hadn’t missed a single kick all season until last week. But his first one was blocked by Cassius Marsh. It’s a great play by Marsh.

The Bears defense scored a pair of touchdowns in a 17-3 win over the Panthers at Soldier Field. The Bears had just 153 yards of total offense and the Panthers turned the ball over Mark Sanchez Jersey three times in a game with zero offensive touchdowns.

The Packers offense is also floundering without injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay was held without a passing touchdown for the first time since a 30-27 win over the Bears last December. Brett Hundley was 12 of 25 for only 87 yards with zero touchdown passes and an interception in a 26-17 loss to the Saints.

Thomas, who intercepted rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and ran 78 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, left Sunday’s game in the fourth quarter with the injury and did not return. Thomas said after the game that he tried to return, but that the coaches just didn鈥檛 let me go back on the field. He underwent an MRI exam Monday for further evaluation.

He does have a slight pull, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday on 710 ESPN Seattle. We鈥檝e got to see what that means. He鈥檚 going to deny it鈥檚 a problem, just like he did. He wanted to go back in, we had to steal his helmet.

Ben Roethlisberger reacting to an official’s ruling is reaction GIF gold

Ben Roethlisberger thought the Pittsburgh Steelers were going to get a first down after an official review. He was surprised to find out he was wrong.

“It’s frustrating. I feel like I’m seeing [Le’Veon Bell] got the ball 35 times, and I got it seven in the first half and then don’t touch the ball again,” Mixon said, via ESPN.com. “[Jeremy] Hill only got one touch in the second half. It’s frustrating to us running backs. We feel like we’re in the room and we feel like we’re part of the offense. If it worked in the first half, why not do it in the second?”

Mixon finished the game with seven carries for 48 yards (6.9 yards per carry), and three receptions for 20 yards. The rookie thinks he can outperform Bell, who Sunday had 134 yards rushing and 58 yards receiving, given the proper workload.

Earlier this week, the NFL held their fall meetings. On Tuesday, owners, players, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and NFLPA director DeMaurice Smith met to discuss protests during the national anthem.

Those meetings did not result in a rule that would force players to stand during the anthem, but Goodell told reporters that he hoped the league could help combat the societal issues that started the protests in the first place.

Then, more play-action passes will open up to Julio Jones, who has 466 receiving yards in six games but scored his first touchdown only last week against New England.

“He’s going to be a load,” Jets head coach Todd Bowles said about Jones. “He’s been triple-teamed and quadrupled. … He’s that great.”nike_49ers_2388_6510eb20a8f64921-150x150

Eagles Pro Bowler Jason Peters carted off field with leg injury

The Eagles began the second half of Monday’s game against the Redskins with a 17-10 lead, but lost one of their offensive stalwarts on the opening series of the third quarter.

Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters had his right leg placed in an aircast and was carted off the field after getting injured on the second play from scrimmage.

Wentz has also managed at least four carries in each game and at least six in five consecutive outings, which raises his fantasy floor. Granted the Eagles will score a larger share of their touchdowns on the ground moving forward (85 percent pass is fourth highest in the league), but Wentz’s high-end efficiency and mobility have him locked into the weekly QB1 mix. He’s an elite fantasy play at home against the struggling 49ers defense this week.

Now general manager Jerry Reese is weighing in.

Reese spoke to reporters for the first time since the start of training camp and took responsibility of a program that is off to a troubling start while addressing roster issues.

We’re 1-6 and it’s not where we want to be obviously, but it’s where Cory Joseph Authentic Jersey we are. I’ll take ownership of that, Reese said. There was a lot of chatter about how good this team looked on paper, but in this business you have to earn wins.

There were high expectations built around the team heading into 2017 after coming off of a 11-5 season last year and Reese believes that part of the problem is that the organization bought into the hype about how good they could be.

Nine Charles seasons in Kansas City and now he is gone.

Game Kids Mark Gastineau Jersey Charles turns 31 in December, played at Texas, was a Chiefs third-round pick in 2008, and has been one of the NFL’s most electric players.

It’s a rejuvenation led by defensive coordinator Dennis Allen and terrorizing defensive end Cam Jordan and rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore. It’s a fresh mindset, a new attitude. It has the Saints chirping about a new defensive swagger.

Bowman brings a lot of experience, a lot of leadership, a lot of physicality, two-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker Khalil Mack said. You’re talking about a guy that, all you’ve got to do is turn the ball back to him. He’s going to be there. And that’s what we’re ready to do.

Hodge said his teammates always applauded him for his training. And once he suffered a knee injury that helped cut his NFL career short, he dove into the training profession as a new career.

I was able to be Jamaal’s trainer and friend and was able to draw on the experience I Andy Levitre Jersey had with knee surgery, Hodge said. When I first got with Jamaal, I could see the toll on him. It was very hard for him. He had gone from a star to now people wondering if he could do it. At one point he was a Hall of Fame certainty and clearly the greatest running back in Chiefs history and now it was if that meant nothing.

Jamaal has always been a workhorse, so guiding him was easy in that way. But he wanted to do the speed, everything fast right away. The hard part was keeping him in the process because of his fire. We worked on the core, his quad first. It was like we had to build and recreate that muscle. After about four months, he was night and day. He began to look like himself. He had hope once again. Jamaal wants 10,000 career rushing yards. Jamaal wants to be part of that elite club and more. He wants to play at least two to three more years. He wants to win a Super Bowl.

Starting corners Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland will be closely watched heading into Monday night’s game in Philadelphia.

Mens Connor Hellebuyck Jersey I am grateful to everyone in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization for the opportunity to complete my baseball education, La Russa said in a statement released by the team. The challenges facing baseball operations, player development and scouting are unique, as it’s a 24-7, 12-month job and more demanding than I ever realized. The success in 2017 was a complete team effort throughout the organization — including great support from our fans — and with the current leadership in place, we can expect it to be the foundation for many winning years to come.

Managing general partner Ken Kendrick, president and CEO Derrick Hall and general manager Mike Hazen all praised La Russa for his tenure in Arizona.

Right tackle Lane Johnson has cleared concussion protocol and is on track to play Monday night against the Redskins. That’s good news for Carson Wentz, as all three Panthers sacks last Thursday came off the right side in Johnson’s absence. Running back Wendell Smallwood is hoping to play after missing the past two games, but the swelling in his knee will have to stay down as he tests it this week in practice. — Tim McManus

Norman, who has already missed one game with a fractured rib, had just started lifting weights with his lower body and jogging lightly last week.

The goal was to increase his exercise and running this week and be re-evaluated. There’s a chance he’ll play against the Eagles, but it’s still a little early to express any level of optimism.

Elite Kids Mason Crosby Jersey So far in his career, neither has been true. Lewis is playing on the outside and Scandrick is manning the slot in most three corner formations for the Cowboys. Matching up against the big boys on the outside hasn’t been an issue. And even more surprising is his tackling ability. As PFF notes, he hasn’t missed a tackle yet.

Ridley spent the preseason with the Broncos and had 38 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown.

Third-year defensive end Frank Clark, who produced 10 sacks as a rotational player last season, will continue to start in Avril’s absence opposite Michael Bennett on early downs. Marcus Smith, Quinton Jefferson and Branden Jackson are the other defensive ends on Seattle’s roster.

The Seattle Seahawks climbed back into the top 10 on CBS Sports’ power rankings. They took care of business against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5. Washington had a bye week, but it finally moved into the top 10.

NFL.com has the Eagles as the second-best team heading into Week 6. The Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos, Washington, and Seattle are all in the top 10.

Ridley spent the preseason with the Broncos and had 38 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown. He played in just one game for the Falcons in 2016 and had three carries for 7 yards.

Derek Carr left the Raiders’ Week 4 loss to the Broncos with a back injury. The team initially said its quarterback had back spasms, but that wasn’t the case. On Monday, the Raiders announced that Carr has a transverse process fracture in his back. Carr is expected to miss two to six weeks to fully recover.

Carr had x-rays and an MRI, but both were inconclusive. A CT scan on Monday confirmed the fracture.

Bowman joins a Raiders team that could use some help defensively. They rank 23rd in the NFL in total defense, and desperately need help at the linebacker position. Their fifth-round pick from the 2017 draft, Marquel Lee, is injured. Behind Lee are Tyrell Adams and undrafted free agent rookie Nicholas Morrow. So Bowman’s experience will immediately come in handy, even if he isn’t the player he once was.sabres_008

Vote: The best and worst from Sunday in the NFL

From Aaron Rodgers’ season-altering injury to the last undefeated team going down (and one of the last winless teams getting a W), Sunday’s Week 6 games were full of surprises.

Per Yahoo, the league asked the woman about the texts and she admitted to the email address and having sex tapes of the two on her phone. However, she told the investigators that her purpose for having them wasn’t to blackmail Elliott.

At the NFL owners’ fall meeting, Jerry Jones was overheard loudly telling NFL investigator Lisa Friel, Your bread and butter is going to get both of us thrown out on the street, according to ESPN’s Seth Wickersham.

Limited Youth 12th Fan Jersey Jones later downplayed the encounter, saying the music at the hotel bar forced him to raise his voice. He told ESPN that he and Friel had a good discussion.

This is the sideline at Lucas Oil Stadium ahead of Colts vs. 49ers, and it’s not just a case of a weird camera angle. The sideline isn’t remotely close to being straight, and it’s wobbling between the field being wider and narrower depending on where you are.

Justin Tucker Womens Jersey There are no reports the sideline is being re-painted, and it looks like a disaster. We’ll need to wait and see what happens in-game and whether this leads to any controversial calls.

We reviewed over 100 exhibits provided by the NFL. We reviewed just hundreds 鈥?a couple hundred pages of statements and information, and we reviewed extensively submissions offered by Mr. Elliott’s representatives as well as the information that the NFL gathered, Lovelace told SB Nation.

Different teammate. Different injury. Same feeling.

It’s hard to see one of your teammates go down in that way, Horford said. We tried to stay together out there.

Across the room sat Irving, his feet sunk into an ice bath, his head buried in his phone. Tonight began about Irving. His trade demand last summer rankled Cavs fans. Him declaring Boston to be a real, live sports city last week enraged them. He was buried in boos during introductions, a greeting that continued whenever he touched the ball. Sign makers on the concourse furiously scribbled Cry-rie Irving on pieces of white cardboard, with one bearing a single word: TRAITOR.
Elite Mens Cam Atkinson Jersey
Midway through the first quarter, Irving’s return became an afterthought. Irving was the first Celtic to reach Hayward when he was loaded onto the stretcher, tapping his new teammate on the shoulder. In 2014, Irving was in Las Vegas when George was hurt. Three years later, Irving watched helplessly as another teammate was taken off the floor.

Mens Jeff Allen Jersey I think most of us believe that attempting to force the players to do something that they don’t want to do is not going to be effective in the long run, New York Giants co-owner John Mara said. I think the better policy going forward is to try to have dialogue with them and try to show them that we’re willing to work with them on some of these issues that all of us are concerned about. That’s been my philosophy with my team, and I think almost every other owner feels the same.

Ratings are down, yes, said Michael Greeson, director of research for The Diffusion Group. Declines in legacy broadcast television has been too often tied to Nielsen’s ratings, which don’t take into account the viewing of connected devices used by people to watch live sports.

Source: Tom Brady expected to play despite left shoulder injury

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who underwent tests on his non-throwing left shoulder after taking some big hits in the team’s victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, did not participate in the team’s practice Tuesday.

It was the first practice Brady has missed this season. Brady’s left shoulder isn’t expected to keep him out of Sunday’s road game against the New York Jets, according to a source.

After Thursday’s win over the Buccaneers, Brady described the hits as just football before saying, I’ll be there next Sunday.

Game Kids Ozzie Guillen Jersey All of a sudden, it’s become a big deal now, about oppression, Ditka said in that interview. There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of. Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people.

San Antonio Spurs Kids Jersey The comment, part of a six-minute interview, brought a storm of criticism across a broad spectrum, including current and former NFL players (including Joe Namath), the NAACP, politicians, the media and the general public.

Ditka’s statement comes in the context of the ongoing and frequently heated debate about NFL players’ protests during the national anthem, which commissioner Roger Goodell says will be a topic of discussion at league meetings next week.

The Eagles (5-1) now have a commanding lead in the NFC East. They already own division wins over the second-place Redskins (2-2) and the winless Giants (0-5). Thursday’s win also gives them a tie-breaker over the Panthers, which could be important for playoff seeding.

All of these teams, save the Spurs, acquired future Hall of Famers.

The Thunder likely snagged two! The upgrades give most of them flexibility to toggle between potent big lineups and even more potent smaller ones — a must-have malleability against Golden State. And yet they all remain massive underdogs.

The Warriors, when healthy, are almost a perfect team. They do not have an exploitable weakness, and if you have one, they are uniquely constructed — among all teams, ever — to exploit it. It’s unfair.

Few NBA point guards help their teams win immediately, notes Kevin Pelton. Will Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz and Dennis Smith Jr. be exceptions?

Murray was a steal in the 2016 NBA draft, falling all the way to the Spurs with the 29th pick, and he already looks like the team’s point guard of the future. With Tony Parker expected to be sidelined until December as he recovers from a torn quadriceps tendon, Murray has the inside track at the starting job for the first month-and-half of the season. If he builds off an impressive rookie season and plays well, Murray could carve out a role even after Parker returns, since Patty Mills is better served as instant offense off the bench. Murray is a deep sleeper I’m high on.

There it is — the players I am looking to draft in fantasy basketball this season while taking ADP into consideration. Feel free to use this information to dominate your league and take home the championship this season.tigers_049-115x115
