Patriots heading to SB LII after victory over Jaguars


For all of the pre-game scrutiny over the daunting prospect of containing the unguardable Rob Gronkowski, the All-Pro tight end hauled in just one pass for 21 yards before safety Barry Church’s helmet-to-helmet blow sent him to the locker room late in the second quarter. Although Church’s penalty helped the Patriots find the end zone in the halftime two-minute drill, Gronkowski was lost for the remainder of the game with a head injury. As valuable as any non-quarterback in football, his status will be one to monitor leading up to Super Bowl LII.

After converting six first downs in a season-best performance versus the Titans last week, Amendola took his game to an even higher level in Sunday’s fourth quarter. Following a 9-yard touchdown, Amendola broke free for a 20-yard punt return, hauled in a diving red-zone catch and capped off the comeback with a toe-tapping score in the back of the end zone. All Amendola does is take pay cuts and make big plays in the postseason.

While Bill Belichick bathes in the deserving glory of his 11th Super Bowl appearance, the Jaguars’ triad of coach Doug Marrone, general manager Dave Caldwell and executive vice president Tom Coughlin merit a tip of the cap for building a bully that bulldozed its way out of the AFC’s basement and onto the doorstep of the Super Bowl. After drafting difference-making All-Pro Jalen Ramsey in 2016, the organization’s braintrust imported a coterie of tone-setters in Calais Campbell, Leonard Fournette, Cam Robinson, A.J. Bouye and Barry Church to instigate this year’s dramatic transformation. Provided Bortles continues to show improvement under Hackett’s guiding hand, Jacksonville is here to stay as an AFC contender.

This season, Washington’s passing attack has scored 5.7 points per game more than expected and, according to ESPN’s Total Quarterback Rating, Cousins is responsible for a vast majority of that (4.9), signifying his high value to the Redskins. Ryan Miller Youth jersey Seeing a quarterback account for so much of a team’s offense might be shocking to some, but not only is the quarterback widely considered to be the most important position on the team, Cousins has had to deal with a slew of injuries this season that only made his task tougher: Chris Thompson, Terrelle Pryor, Shaun Lauvao, T.J. Clemmings and Robert Kelley are all on injured reserve, in addition to Trent Williams and Jordan Reed missing significant time.

In fact, Washington had to play at the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9 without Williams, Reed and Lauvao in addition to right guard Brandon Scherff, receiver Jamison Crowder, defensive linemen Jonathan Allen and Matt Ioannidis and linebacker Mason Foster 鈥?and the Redskins still managed to walk away with a win.

Foles was an ideal QB to return as the Eagles’ backup for one reason: He responded well to the pressure of playing in Philadelphia with high passing volume once before. When the time came to reboot Foles in the mold of the Kelly-coached version of himself, he was ready for it.

Pederson and general manager Howie Roseman did an amazing job cleaning up the schematic and personnel mess Kelly left behind. Pederson, an edgier version of Andy Reid, settled the coaching staff. Roseman quickly rebuilt the roster around indispensable players such as Ertz, Lane Johnson, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham and Malcolm Jenkins, and he restored the right skill support for his QBs.

Fozzy Whittaker Authentic Jersey Pederson turned out to be an angel for Foles’ fading career, but consider Kelly to be the little devil in the detail. This Foles doesn’t happen without that Foles.

Beal scored 18 and Wall had 11 — the only double-digit scorers for the Womens Jersey Wizards — as the guards combined to go 8 of 29 from the field. Beal was 7 of 12 on free throws, and the Wizards were just 16 of 27 from the line.

It had been thought that the two sides would meet Tuesday in New York.


The Patriots have been known to use trick plays in the playoffs before, and against an aggressive Jaguars defense Sunday might be the perfect time to use them.

“If you’ve been working on a play all year, a lot of coordinators, you might as well call it,” Belichick told reporters a year ago.

Which team will win the turnover battle? Despite Bortles’ 13 interceptions this season, the Jaguars were fifth in turnover margin this season thanks to the defense’s 33 takeaways, second in the NFL behind only the Ravens.

Brady tossed just eight interceptions all season, but six came in the final six weeks of the regular season. (Some speculated whether his throwing hand was bothering him before this week.) Still, Brady threw three touchdown passes without a pick in the 35-14 divisional win over the Titans, but the Jaguars were second behind only the Ravens with 21 interceptions.

The league and teams are to provide approximately $90 million between the onset of the arrangement and 2023 to social causes deemed important by the players, focused in particular on African American communities, a person familiar with the talks confirmed earlier Wednesday. The terms of the league’s proposal were first reported Wednesday morning by ESPN.

Now Pederson will face perhaps the best coach the NFL has ever known. If Pederson can solve Belichick’s creativity and deliver the Eagles their first Super Bowl championship, he will forever be a legend in Philadelphia.

Eagles tackle Halapoulivaati Vatai against Patriots pass rushers — Vaitai has struggled at times while filling in for Jason Peters, but the second-year player from TCU kept Minnesota’s sack leader at bay. Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen, who had 13 sacks during the regular season and another in last Sunday’s win over the Saints, had just one tackle on Sunday and zero sacks in Philadelphia’s 38-7 win.

NFL officials had no immediate public response. Many of them are in London for Sunday’s game there between the Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns, and it is not clear if the offer to meet Monday will be accepted.

An NFL spokesman said last week that the league expected Kaepernick to be invited to that meeting by players.patriots_037_38b52494b1ae61ae-180x180

The Lakers have not formally ruled Randle out for Friday’s game, but he is unlikely to be available.


At some point during Nick Foles’ transition from team to team in the NFL, the former Pro Bowl quarterback lost a passion for the game and contemplated retirement. This is according to Foles, who detailed in a video for a devotional series on YouVersion’s Bible app his journey from rock bottom back to the field.

I kept reading scripture, I kept praying, I kept asking God — and so many of us Logan Couture Youth jersey ask God for signs, we ask God, ‘Hey, please just put it on the wall, like, I want to know,’ but that’s not how it works, Foles said. He’s not always going to do that. He was shaping me. He was bringing me down to my knees … At that moment, through that prayer, He said, ‘Hey, just take a step of faith. You’re either going to stop playing the game of football and you’re going to go onto a different area of your life and I’m going to be with you, I’m going to be the most important thing in your life, or you’re going to step back into football and you’re going to continue to play and I’m going to be with you every step of the way and you’re going to play to glorify me.

But they do not talk about it.

Well, we’re not supposed to talk about it, but I will say that we as a team, as a brotherhood, know all there is to know about taking care of today for today, about not getting ahead of ourselves and how doing that can put you in a bind, Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon said.

Since Doug Marrone took over as head coach in Week 16 last season, the Jaguars are 6-2 ATS with five outright wins as an underdog.


The Rams have been a symbol of gridiron failure since 2004. They suffered through a 12-year playoff drought and four-plus seasons of Jeff Fisher’s 7-and-9 bullsh*t while maintaining a constant presence in the top of of each year’s draft. Those lamentable years finally faded into the background in 2017, but LA’s renaissance has largely been a function of young and unappreciated players making plays 锟斤拷 and that could be a major obstacle in the postseason.

Georgia-Oklahoma was one of the most thrilling college football games played in recent memory, but we here in the Kick Clique had trouble following the game because we were too busy falling in love. Yep, we had a full-on case of a plantar fan-sciitis for the bespectacled, beautiful vision that was Georgia kicker Rodrigo Blankenship.

During the 2017 offseason, he told Fowler that he wanted to be paid like the Steelers’No. 1 running back and the team’s No. 2 receiver.

The Steelers probably don’t want to franchise tag him either. Bell is an incredibly important player for the Pittsburgh offense, so the team will want to do what it can to make sure he stays in black and gold. But it may actually be cheaper for the Steelers to just give him a sizable contract rather than another franchise tag.

The only teams who were worse at running the ball were the Minnesota Vikings, who lost Peterson for the and the St.Of course, you’d have Witten with the lion’s share of the work.

The New Orleans Saints were one of the biggest surprises in the regular season.


A resurgent running game has them as a favorite in the NFC, with Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram getting most of the credit in the backfield.

But there’s a weapon on the outside who has continued to improve: Michael Thomas. Thomas had a standout rookie season coming out of Ohio State in 2016, but it went unnoticed because the Saints finished 7-9.

Perhaps the most crucial play, though, came on a third-and-8 in the fourth quarter. Wilson escaped through a crease in the pocket and, five yards past the line of scrimmage, pitched the ball laterally—or was it forward?—to his running back as two defenders were closing in. The Seahawks went on to score on that drive, all but securing their 24-10 win.

“He caught me off guard,” defensive end Chris Long says at his locker afterward, still shaken by his empty lunge at Wilson right as he took off running.

Post-game, a common adversary emerges: a bad week of practice, in which the Eagles say they made mistakes like turnovers and penalties that are starting to show up on Sundays. Wentz, whose heroics carried the team for much of the season, is particularly hard on himself. He overthrew Nelson Agholor, underthrew him another time and fumbled the ball away on the goal line while diving in for a score.

Knowing his penchant for extending plays with his legs, the Seahawks are not shy about hitting him. “He likes to find the extra yards,” says Sheldon Richardson, who forced the fumble. A few times through the night, Wentz appears to wince and one time signals back to the sidelines with a thumbs-up that he’s OK to keep going.

The highest salary among NFL head coaches is Bill Belichick’s. He’s only gone to seven Super Bowls, winning five. To the Patriots, he’s clearly worth every penny of that $12.5 million he’s reportedly bringing in per year.

Until the Raiders decided to give Gruden this blockbuster deal, the Seahawks’ Pete Carroll was reportedly the league’s second-highest-paid head coach at about $8 million per year. Carroll signed an extension prior to the 2016 season, after he’d led the team to four straight playoff appearances, two Super Bowl bids, and a 43-8 Super Bowl win over the Broncos after the 2013 season.

Jack Dickey: Darvish did his free agency no great favors in his post-deadline Dodger stint, looking less like an ace than a No. 2 with occasionally electric stuff. His disastrous World Series may have left a bad taste in general managers’ mouths. He is nevertheless the best starter on the market, young enough (he turns 32 in August) to earn a medium-term deal. If the price is right, a Rangers reunion seems likely. If bidding goes crazy, something suggests the Angels (who tied with Baltimore for the fewest quality starts in the American League in 2017) will be involved.?nationals_007

It went wrong, though, just like moment after moment went against the Falcons.


The Falcons are going to have a painful, regret-filled offseason, one year after what, by the numbers, was the most painful, regret-filled offseason of the NFL’s Super Bowl era.

I think it’s great that Arizona State picked Herman Edwards to be its football coach, and I mean that. I’ve known Edwards for 20 years, and he’s one of the most genuine and good-hearted people I know in any walk of life, and the players he imports to the program will be better human beings for knowing him. Now, as far as winning, I have no idea. Can he recruitCan he get a good staff to teach and coach the recruits, especially in a big-league conference like the Pac-12I just don’t know. And while I appreciated the fact that ASU is going to run the program like an NFL team, this definition of the formation of the new programs sounds a tad complex: The department’s New Leadership Model will be similar to an NFL approach using a general manager structure. It’s a collaborative approach to managing the ASU football program that includes sport and administrative divisions, which will operate as distinct but collective Womens Shane Doan Jersey units focused on elevating all aspects of Sun Devil Football. This structure will allow the department to form a multi-layered method to the talent evaluation and recruiting processes, increase its emphasis on both student-athlete and coach development and retention, and provide a boost in resource allocation and generation.

The Titans’ upset of the Chiefs disrupted the anticipated rematch of the prime-time NFL season opener that Kansas City won at New England. The Patriots not only have a respite from the chess match with the Chiefs offense, but also any chance of them taking the Titans lightly was erased by the explosive ESPN story about dissension involving Brady, Bill Belichick and Robert Kraft. The idea of bulletin-board material seems foolish under these circumstances, but never underestimate the tools Belichick and Brady can use to sharpen their focus. It should be razor-sharp here.

I think these are my quick thoughts on Week 13:

Andrew Shaw Kids Jersey a. With the regular season 75 percent complete, my MVP top three: 1. Tom Brady, 2. Russell Wilson, 3. Carson Wentz. Why has Wilson jumped Wentz for the time being, despite having won two fewer gamesThe head-to-head performance Sunday night helped. But more than anything, it’s the fact that Wilson performs at such a high level with a line far inferior to Philadelphia’s.

I count four huge, winning Carr throws in the last 107 seconds of this game.


At that moment, the Chiefs were 5-1, with a three-game lead on the 2-4 Raiders. What made the situation more dire for Oakland: Games away from home loomed against Buffalo, New England (in Mexico City), Kansas City and Philadelphia in the last 10 games. A fifth loss, and the playoffs would be nearly an impossible dream for Oakland, as Romo said.
