Winner gains a vital edge of its home field should they play each other again.

This wasn’t supposed to be Fromm’s job, but when Jacob Eason went down in Georgia’s opener, Fromm stepped in and looked like a savvy veteran. For the year, his 9.4 yards per attempt ranked sixth nationally, and he was especially good vs. the blitz, throwing 12 TDs with just one interception and posting an astonishing passer rating of 256.1, best in the Power 5.

Taylor was the backbone of Wisconsin’s offense this season, rushing for 1,847 yards, the most by a freshman since Adrian Peterson in 2004. Taylor had nine games with more than 100 yards, three with more than 200, and his 6.8 yards per rush ranked fifth among running backs with at least 150 rushes.

While Danny Amendola has been steady in the slot with Edelman out, and while Phillip Dorsett has flashed downfield, Lewis and Burkhead supplement that capacity from the backfield better than White can. With Gronk’s size and Cooks’ speed on those “forward handoff” plays in scoring position, Lewis and Burkhead have rendered Gillislee unnecessary near the goal line.

Morrow averaged 97.7 mph with his fastball and it’s that big velocity that the Cubs are banking on, maybe even counting on Morrow to replace free agent Wade Davis as the team’s closer. There’s some risk there as well, not so much in that Morrow has done the job, but because he was used very carefully last season (at least until the postseason, when Dave Roberts used him 14 of the Dodgers’ 15 playoff games).

Part II of the Eagles’ reputation-testing West Coast trip, this time against a Rams team with an offense harder to stop than Seattle’s and a defense that’s healthier. That defense is what Carson Wentz and the Eagles have to worry about, especially after being held without a touchdown for more Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys than Best Place To Buy Cheap Jerseys a half in Seattle on Sunday night. The Rams, meanwhile, are the only team that has defeated the Saints over the last two months.

Here’s Why Devils Forward Blake Coleman Was Drinking Pickle Juice

Having a drink in the penalty box is nothing new for NHL players. Heck, there’s a whole host of Gatorade bottles to choose from in the sin bin.

New Jersey Devils forward Blake Coleman was spotted partaking in the refreshments Saturday, while serving a two-minute penalty for slashing against the Colorado Avalanche at the Prudential Center. His choice of beverage, however, didn’t come from one of those brightly-colored squeeze bottles.

The Bills announced that the compensation is a sixth-round draft pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, but the real coup for the Bills is sending away a huge contract to the Jaguars that the team no longer wanted on the books.

According to Adam Schefter, the pick could become a fifth-rounder depending on the performance of Dareus in the remainder of the 2017 season.

A Packers source confirmed Saturday that the team is aware of Bennett’s possible retirement after the season. Green Bay, which is on a bye this week, has nine games to go in the regular Cheap Lacrosse Jerseys season.

Even after he signed with the Packers, Bennett maintained his home in Long Grove, Illinois, a northern suburb. Bennett spoke frequently about the return trips he Cheap Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys made there to see his wife and daughter.

Traina Thoughts: Is The End Near For ESPN’s “The Six?”

1. This is 100 percent pure speculation, but if I were a betting man, I’d say The Six, hosted by Jemele Hill and Michael Smith, will be gone from ESPN before the end of the year.

Touchdown, Patriots. New England drives into Atlanta territory after a 20-yard completion by Brady and a 25-yard run by Dion Lewis. Two plays later, Brady drops back and throws a pass across the field and into the end zone that is easily intercepted, but Atlanta is called for roughing the passer. Brandin Cooks follows by taking a pitch from Brady 11 yards for a touchdown, giving the Patriots a 7-0 lead.

He also racked up 89 receiving yards, the most of any player on the night for either team, and has a real chance at putting together a 1,000-yard season for the Eagles.

Freeman released a statement on the matter shortly after the ban was handed Cheap Kids NFL Jerseys down and apologized being a “distraction” to the team.

Dortmund’s season thus far has been a smashing success or a stumbling failure, depending on which competition you look at. Dortmund is flying high in the Bundesliga, sitting in first place with a two-point lead over bitter rivals Bayern Munich. The Champions League, however, has Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale been a different story. Dortmund drew the short end of the stick by being grouped with holders Real Madrid and Tottenham, and Dortmund has earned just one point after the first round of games.

Lonzo Ball: ‘Two dumb plays’ by me ended Lakers’ comeback chances

Lonzo Ball accepted blame for Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell’s momentum-changing, one-handed putback dunk and the Los Angeles Lakers’ eventual 96-81 loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday night.

“Definitely surprised by that,” Forte said. “We knew the weather was going to be like this. It continued to rain the entire game. I think we ran the ball only 20 times, something like that. There should’ve been at least one person getting 20 carries, the way the weather was. I thought we were going to grind them out on the ground. It ended up not turning out that way.”

Damian Lillard scored 14 of his 25 points during the third quarter for Portland (3-2). C.J. McCollum had 23 points, but missed one of two free throws with five seconds remaining that could have given the Blazers a three-point lead.

All five Portland starters scored in double figures. Ed Davis had 10 rebounds.

Neither team led by more than five points in the fourth quarter was a tight battle where neither team led by more than five points. Portland wiped out an 89-84 deficit when a clear-path foul led to a five-point possession for Al-Farouq Aminu.

Griffin gave the Clippers a 101-100 lead with a minute to play, but McCollum put the Cheap Jerseys Soccer China Blazers in front when he hit an uncontested 12-foot jumper with 44 seconds remaining. Following an offensive foul by Rivers with five seconds left, McCollum made 1 of 2 Cheap Jerseys UK free throws, opening the door for Griffin’s winner.

Matt Forte, after 4-carry day: ‘Everybody’ on Jets needs to get on same page

The New York Jets’ surprising start has taken a turn toward ugly.

The Buccaneers’ inconsistent defense has struggled and gave up at least 30 points in three of the team’s first four losses. It’s No. 29 in the NFL yards allowed, while the offense is No. 4 in yards gained even after its poor game against Carolina. Sunday was also a windy game that was conducive to offensive mistakes.

But if the Buccaneers are waiting for Winston to stop making rookie mistakes, it’s getting harder to trust that those days are coming. It’s looking more and more like lapses in judgment are just a part of who he is as a quarterback.

Spence was a rookie on Greg Schiano’s final Tampa Bay Buccaneers team in 2013 — and one of Schiano’s late-game tactics was to sometimes blitz during an opponent’s victory formation. Spence said Sunday what he did was nothing close to that.

“Nah, we used to go at people’s legs, which I thought was really cheap,” Spence said. “It wasn’t nothing like that. Just came off with my hands up high, just playing ball. Nothing crazy. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just got a little chippy.”

Pouncey pointed out the game wouldn’t have been as close if the Steelers Cheap Jerseys Youth didn’t drop Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China two would-be touchdowns. Eli Rogers dropped an end-zone pass on the opening drive, and Ben Roethlisberger overthrew Darrius Heyward-Bey on another.

Stacking the bowl QBs by pro potential (regardless of class)

The biggest year-over-year jumps on the list were Fanatics owner Michael Rubin, who moved up 10 spots from No. 29 last year to No. 19 this year. The biggest drop was Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, who fell 18 spots from No. 16 to No. 34.

Two athletes made the most influential list: LeBron James (No. 23) and Colin Kaepernick (No. 50).

Jurich’s athletic department agreed to pay an additional $2.4 million a year. The public, meanwhile, was saddled with another 25 years of arena-related taxes totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. In the end, the arena will cost more than $1 billion, with taxpayers funding most of it. Despite the bailout, some experts fear the FBI probe’s effect on the arena’s primary tenant could be catastrophic.

The Green Bay Packers came back to set the stage for Aaron Rodgers’ comeback.

Cleveland fell to 0-13 and made too many crucial mistakes to break into the win column.

On third-and-6, Hundley threw a short pass to Adams, who broke a tackle and went in untouched with 5:05 left as the Packers (7-6) won in overtime for the second straight week — and third time this season. The Packers have Cheap Jerseys In Bulk stayed alive in the playoff race without Rodgers, who has been out since Oct. 15 with a broken collarbone but is expected to play next Sunday.

It was another devastating loss for the Browns (0-13). Green Bay’s TD came after safety Josh Jones intercepted Browns rookie DeShone Kizer, who Cheap Jerseys Ireland inexplicably threw the ball up for grabs while being pressured by Clay Matthews.

Celtics beat Spurs 108-94

The injury to free agent Gordon Hayward devastated the Boston Celtics emotionally and threatened to derail their efforts to improve on last year’s Eastern Conference finals appearance.

It took about three games for them to figure things out.

“Once that happened, we really didn’t know where we were at as a team,” center Al Horford said on Monday night after the Celtics won their fifth straight game, beating the San Antonio Spurs 108-9. “We’ve really come together.”

Penguins, Oilers seeking consistency

The Edmonton Oilers host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, with the two high-powered teams struggling for consistency early in the season.

Texans-Seahawks became the first game in NFL history in which each quarterback recorded 400-plus passing yards, four-plus passing touchdowns and 30-plus rushing yards.

Wilson converted $6.26 million of his 2017 base salary into a signing bonus, a source confirmed. Wilson gets that money immediately, but for salary-cap purposes, it’s now prorated over the remaining three seasons of his contract. The move freed up $4.17 million against the 2017 cap.

The Seahawks had to do some maneuvering in order to fit Brown’s contract under Cheap Jarome Iginla Jerseys their salary cap. He’s owed a little under $5 million for the remainder of the season. The Seahawks began the day with about $1.4 million in cap space, according to NFL Players Association records, and Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys they only gained a little over $2 million in cap relief by sending cornerback Jeremy Lane to Houston as part of their package for Brown.

Devils captain Andy Greene missed the final half of the second period but returned for the third.

Wisconsin: The Badgers still own the Huskers, having beaten them six out of seven times since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011. They’re off to a 5-0 start for the first time since going 6-0 in 2011.

Nebraska: The Huskers managed only 68 yards in the second half after amassing 313 in the first. The 21-point loss was their most lopsided since Iowa beat them by the same score in 2013 and only increases the pressure on Riley.

“It’s great to see them contribute and, as we’ve said in preseason, we didn’t feel it was a fluke the way they played even though it was preseason,” Devils coach John Hynes said of his rookies. “You could see how they played every day in practice and in the game, and nice to see them come and play important roles on our team.”

We can play with anyone in the country.

The Aggies were driving again early in the fourth quarter when Minkah Fitzpatrick intercepted Mond near the goal line for his first pick this season.

But Alabama couldn’t move the ball and had to punt out of the end zone. Cullen Gillaspia, who wears Texas A&M’s beloved 12th man jersey, blocked JK Scott’s punt in the end zone for a safety to make it 24-12.

“I think we proved something to ourselves,” Gillaspia said.

Texas A&M couldn’t do anything on its next drive, with Mond getting sacked twice and losing two yards on a run to force the Aggies to punt.
