Retired pitcher Roy Halladay sped Nate Allen Jersey his small sport plane low over the Gulf of Mexico minutes before his fatal crash two weeks ago, climbing sharply in the final seconds before diving into the water, federal investigators said in a preliminary report released Monday.
I never said a team, though, said Jeffery at his locker stall Tuesday, raising an eyebrow and offering a smile. I never said a team.
The only reason I’m going with a B for Matthew Stafford is because the expectations of him to start the year — when he got his contract making him the highest-paid player in the NFL — were quite high. He has come close to meeting them, but that five-turnover game in New Orleans in Week 6 stands out and there are times where it looks like he’s struggled, particularly early in games. But he’s as consistent as he has ever been and continuously makes good decisions. He’s one of the reasons the Lions are heading into their Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Vikings competing for a playoff berth. — Michael Rothstein
O.J. Howard and DeSean Jackson had touchdown catches for the Buccaneers, who outscored Miami 17-0 in the second quarter to take a 20-7 halftime lead.
Hats off to them for changing their plan up in the second half and making some plays, said Tampa Bay cornerback Brent Grimes, a former Pro Bowler for the Dolphins. We made enough to win.

Elite Womens Sean Mannion Jersey Latavius Murray wouldn’t go so far as to call the Vikings the team to beat in the NFC North, but the Minnesota running back knows his team is in an advantageous position to start the second half of the season.
We know if we take care of our business, we’ll be right where we want to be, Murray told Omnisport. We know every week is hard to win in this league, so we just try to keep our eye on an each-week approach and continue to improve. We know if we do that, the rest will take care of itself.
Josh Anderson scored two minutes into overtime to give the Columbus Blue Jackets their fifth straight win, 1-0 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.
Columbus activated C Lukas Sedlak, who had missed 13 games with an ankle injury. … Blue Jackets C Alexander Wennberg has missed three games with an upper-body injury and remains day-to-day. … Gaudreau has registered a point in all but four games this season. … Columbus’ Cam Atkinson played in his 400th NHL game, while Zach Werenski took the ice for the 100th time.
Jason Pierre-Paul Limited Jersey Speaking of the draft, there are more exquisite names on their way to the NHL, including Bode Wilde, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Benoit-Olivier Groulx, Alexander Alexeyev and Ric Flair’s favorite hockey player, Jett Woo. It speaks to the game’s international appeal that there are so many great names from so many great places represented in NHL history. I’m thankful that this is the case.
The league said Wednesday that Paulina Rojas and Luz Alicia Gordoa are in training and at least one will of them officiate a game during the regular season.
Gordoa has played softball for 21 years and has served as a softball umpire for five years. Rojas has been an umpire in baseball youth leagues.
Mexico’s Triple-A-equivalent league will get a female umpire before Major League Baseball, which hasn’t had any yet.
One woman, Ria Cortesio, was an umpire in Paul Goldschmidt Youth jersey Double-A play in the United States for nine years, until 2007. Before that, Pam Postema umpired in the Triple-A Pacific Coast League for six seasons in the 1980s. Both women also were umpires in MLB exhibition games, but they never worked games in the regular season.

Corey Coleman hauled in 6 of 10 targets for 80 yards against the Jaguars on Sunday. It was the 2016 first-round pick’s first action since he went down with an injury in Week 2. The game marked Coleman’s most receiving yardage in a game since he totaled 104 in Week 2 last season.
In the second quarter of the 49ers’ win over the Giants on Sunday, San Francisco wide receiver Marquise Goodwin caught a pass from C.J. Beathard, ran it into the end zone for an 83-yard touchdown, blew a kiss to the sky and fell to the ground.
My life would not have played out the way it did without hockey. The game rescued me. It gave me a stage on which to break out of my “woe-is-me, low-self-esteem, awkward-teenager” chapter of my life, when I realized a severely nearsighted girl with contacts could shock plenty of people by donning a goalie mask and gear and play hockey with the boys in the mid-1970s. And even make the boys’ team in high school.
Linda Cohn calls drinking from the Stanley Cup in 1994, after the Rangers won it, “one of the best moments of my life, right up there with giving birth to my two children.” Linda Cohn
I’m thankful for my passion for the team that was handed down to me by my dad, the New York Rangers. The emotional roller coaster I became addicted to because of that connection is priceless. It still continues with my siblings and my kids.
According to Nicole, Roy Miller also shoved her, threw her phone in the toilet and didn’t allow her to retrieve it. He eventually barricaded himself in his room, and Nicole was able to retrieve her phone and call police.
When police arrived, Roy Miller was sleeping. He came outside to talk to them and was arrested. According to the report, several children were inside the home.
The Chiefs said they were aware on the incident, but didn’t provide any further information.
“This morning we were informed about an incident involving one of our players, Roy Miller,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “We are still in the process of gathering details on the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Some congratulations are in order for Jonathan Stewart.

At the top was the NFL. Various others, including Major League Soccer, were labeled up-and-coming. At the bottom, under the category of eroding, was the NBA, which had just signed a $24 billion TV deal with ESPN and TNT and was coming off its most watched Finals since 1998.

Limited Youth Robert Woods Jersey The behind-closed-doors story of how the NFL and players forged a shaky alliance over the national anthem as owners navigated the collision of financial worries and social activism.
Buffalo started rookie Nathan Peterman over Tyrod Taylor Sunday, but he threw two interceptions in his first two drives at StubHub Center.
With Bills receiver Jordan Matthews inactive before the game, rookie Zay Jones could be the team’s No. 1 receiver Sunday. Andre Holmes should also get more snaps.
It left some league executives and others close to the case baffled; some agreed with Roberts’ conclusion that there were credibility questions around the accuser, while others wondered whether Friel and other league executives sought a makeup call for the mishandled Josh Brown case.
AFTER THE REPORT was written, Goodell met with Friel, Pash and several other league executives. Roberts, however, did not attend. At Friel’s recommendation, Goodell convened a four-person panel of advisers to consider the evidence collected in the Elliott matter, hear from Elliott himself and Esa Tikkanen Womens Jersey make recommendations — proof, a league source says, that Goodell never had assured Jones that Elliott was in the clear. And so, on June 26 in the NFL offices, the advisory group reviewed witness statements, medical records and text messages exchanged by Elliott, his accuser and others. The panel questioned Friel, but again, Roberts was not invited and didn’t have a chance to express her opinion.

Limited Kids Roger Craig Jersey The RB/WR hybrid totaled seven carries for 30 yards and five catches for 23 yards on six targets. McKissic’s role makes him worth consideration on waivers this week, but Mike Davis stands out as well. The 2015 fourth-round pick racked up 59 yards on eight touches (16 snaps) before departing with a groin injury. With Lacy and Thomas Rawls (healthy scratch) falling out of favor, Davis has a shot to take over as the team’s lead back once back to full health. That would be enough to get him into the flex, if not RB2, mix. Keep an eye on his status throughout the week.
The reigning champion Astros will begin next season on the road with a series against the Texas Rangers. Houston and Texas will square off on Opening Day in Arlington on March 29.
The Astros-Rangers afternoon contest is one of four Opening Day games televised by ESPN. Reggie Nelson Jersey The Chicago Cubs will visit the Miami Marlins at 12:30 p.m. ET, followed by Astros-Rangers.
The reigning National League champion Dodgers, who lost the World Series in seven games to the Astros, will host the rival San Francisco Giants at 7 p.m. ET on Opening Day, followed by the Cleveland Indians against the Seattle Mariners at 10 p.m. ET.
The Bengals are averaging 48.8 offensive plays per game during five outings since their Week 6 bye. That includes fewer than 54 plays in all five outings. For perspective, the Bengals averaged 65.6 plays per game last year and at least 61.5 plays per game each season over the past decade. The NFL average this season is 63.4 plays per game. Plain and simple, the Bengals aren’t able to keep their offense on the field.

There’s another reason he should become a strong candidate: He just finished his age-27 season, and thanks to four straight 200-hit seasons, he already has 1,250 career Tim Horton Jersey hits. That puts 3,000 hits in reach, and that milestone has meant automatic election. One understated aspect of his brilliance has been his remarkable durability: he averaged 156 games the past five years.
Authentic Womens Taylor Gabriel Jersey Chase Utley: He’s obviously well past his prime, but at his best, he was maybe the second-best player in the game. From 2005 to 2010 he averaged 7.5 WAR per season and was second to Albert Pujols in WAR over those seasons:
He has modest upside as a bye week fill-in this week against the Cardinals, who allow the 14th-most points to tight ends, but the season value he adds in case of injury to your starter makes it worth it to take a flier on him this week. –Daube
Of course, if he doesn’t get to 300 wins, he’ll have to deal with the ridiculous bias against modern-day starting pitchers, when clearly qualified candidates such as Mike Mussina and Curt Schilling can’t get elected. He’s also the player most likely to help his case for Cooperstown right now, with his performance in this World Series.

Well, that escalated quickly …
As Florida and Georgia prepare to kick off in Jacksonville, Florida, the CBS broadcast team of Gary Danielson and Brad Nessler brings their television audience up to speed on what has been a bizarre week for the Gators, after head coach Jim McElwain told reporters about death threats directed at himself, his family and his players … wait, Saquon Barkley has already scored a touchdown.
Hutchins questioned how a serious academic institution could balance its mission with a successful athletic program, and criticized schools that received more headlines for their football teams than for their academics.
The Astros didn’t use relievers Brad Peacock, Will Harris or Chris Devenski in Game 6. With two days of rest, those three are expected to be fully available. Ken Giles, Houston’s struggling closer, also didn’t pitch in Game 6, but it would seem unlikely that Hinch would go to Giles, unless he was forced to by the game’s circumstances.

A word about NFL TV ratings. Several words, actually. The NFL is concerned about them. Some people in the league are hugely concerned about them. They should be. A year ago, when the ratings were tanking, most media cognoscenti said it was because the rancorous presidential campaign was sucking all the TV air out of the room, and the marginal football fan was watching Fox News or MSNBC or CNN instead of football. So we’ll skip 2016 ratings for the purpose of this exercise, and compare 2017 to 2015.
“The innings were rolling pretty quickly there the first four, five, six innings,” Wood said. “It kept us both of us locked in.”
Chris Taylor singled leading off the first but was thrown out on a delayed steal attempt that ended the inning, the first runner caught stealing by Houston catcher Brian McCann since June 18. That was part of a streak of 15 straight outs by Morton before he hit Barnes on the right forearm with a pitch leading off the sixth.
Enrique Hernandez’s single put runners at the corners and Taylor hit a two-hopper to third that Bregman scooped on an in-between hop and threw home in plenty of time for McCann to tag Barnes, who tried to stop about 10 feet from the plate and fell. Bregman also threw out the Yankees’ Greg Bird at the plate in the fifth inning of Game 7 in the AL Championship Series.
“We’re a super-resilient team,” Bellinger said. “Taking one here to make sure we go back to LA is huge.”
We were practicing at 10 in the morning, and the stadium was filled. People were waiting there for the game that night. The energy was so electric. You see a sign that says ‘Socialism Or Death,’ but you’re surrounded by this incredible joy for baseball. The Cubans were the best in the world, not for money or politics, but because they loved the game.”
The Falcons righted the ship following a three-game losing streak, but the road ahead looks daunting. No Womens Victor Rask Jersey team has a remaining strength of schedule more difficult than Atlanta’s (.591 opponents’ win percentage).
Shawn Lauvao, OG, Washington Redskins: One of the league’s most banged-up offensive line units took another hit Sunday, as Lauvao was removed from action in the third quarter and received treatment in the medical tent on the sideline before heading back to the locker room. He Authentic Pavol Demitra Jersey was designated as questionable to return because of a stinger. Arie Kouandjio replaced Lauvao at left guard. He was later downgraded to out.
If there’s one conference that understands a pragmatic approach to this season, it’s the Big Ten. The league has felt in transition, with new members Maryland, Rutgers and Nebraska in recent years. Having the East Coast connection of the Terps and Scarlet Knights has opened a little more recruiting ground for Big Ten teams, and some coaching changes have brought different philosophies into the league.
But while it might sound overly harsh to whittle an entire league’s experience to one word, “disappointment” might best cover the Big Ten last season.
It isn’t just the losses but also the caliber of opponent that is alarming. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this is the first time since April of his rookie season that a LeBron James team has lost three straight games against teams that didn’t make the playoffs the previous season.
Dale Hawerchuk Authentic Jersey Morton was nearly as stingy, allowing three hits in 6 1/3 innings. This was the first Series game in which both starters allowed four baserunners or fewer.

Darren McFadden, RB, Dallas Cowboys (41.8 percent): Could it be that McFadden steps into a starting role? Unquestionably. But he has yet to play in a game this season, as he has been a healthy scratch while Elliott has been on the field.
Hope dwindled after Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught a 72-yard touchdown pass that plummeted cubsfan333 down the standings. But minutes later Graham caught his second touchdown pass with 21 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Cubsfan333 was back in second place in the million-dollar tournament.
Everything would come down to the final minutes of the Dallas-Washington game. The Cowboys were leading 26-19 and punted the ball to Washington with less than a minute to play. Cubsfan333 needed a big play from Dallas’ defense to have a chance.
It also has the liberty — and the established precedent — to deem Ohio State better than Oklahoma in spite of the Josh Reddick Jersey head-to-head result if it thinks those teams are no longer comparable. We’ve seen it before with the Buckeyes, when they were chosen for a CFP semifinal spot instead of Penn State last year even though they lost to the Nittany Lions.
Who’s to say the committee wouldn’t do it again, this time at Oklahoma’s expense?
After three games this season, the Phoenix Suns were allowing almost 129 points per game. Now they’re playing tough defense, believe it or not.

But first things first. First-year Buffalo coach Sean McDermott was the defensive coordinator in Carolina for Benjamin’s first three seasons in the league, as was Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane, who was director of football operations and then assistant GM with the Panthers.
I don’t know what’s been here in the past, McDermott said Sunday after Buffalo’s 34-14 win over the visiting Oakland Raiders. I just know that we come out every week, the guys work hard, they respect the process and put the time in. … And that’s the whole ‘earning the right, earning the right,’ you fill in the blank.
There’s still a ton of work for the Bulldogs, who, after playing South Carolina, still have to deal with a game at Auburn before closing out the regular season against Kentucky and Georgia Tech.
