Cowboys’ Jerry Jones receives stern letter from NFL owners in fight over Goodell contract

The NFL has had enough of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ antics related to negotiations on a new contract for Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Isaac Bruce (15,208 yards), Randy Moss (15,292) and Terrell Owens (15,934) are not yet in the Hall. Bruce and Owens have been passed over the last two years while Moss will be eligible next year. Gonzalez will be eligible in 2019 while Fitzgerald has shown no indication of retiring after agreeing to a contract extension earlier this week.

Fitzgerald’s touchdown against the Texans tied Sunday’s game in Houston at 7-7. The Cardinals capitalized on a Patrick Peterson interception with a touchdown pass to Ricky Seals-Jones for a second score to hold a 14-10 halftime lead. Fitzgerald added another 6-yard reception before the break.

It isn’t just a schedule that includes Baltimore having four of six remaining games at home and Jose Reyes Authentic Jersey a favorable stretch against Cleveland, Indianapolis and Cincinnati to end the regular season.

Limited Womens Doug Kotar Jersey It’s also because of an offense starting to find an identity after being ravaged by injuries.

It’s the sound special teams led by Justin Tucker, who has now connected on 15 of his last 16 field-goal attempts after making all three of his kicks against the Packers.

Limited Womens Donte Moncrief Jersey And most importantly, it’s because of a defense that handed Green Bay its first home shutout since 2006, when Mike McCarthy was in his first year as head coach and Brett Favre started at quarterback.

If the Giants don’t want to play hard for Ben McAdoo anymore, there’s no good reason to keep him around. The fact that he’s even thinking about benching Eli Manning is grounds for divorce in itself.

As Mitchell drew the technical foul, Embiid got up and motioned to the fans, Ricky Wagner Authentic Jersey who started to chant MVP and Trust the Process, the team’s mantra during a lengthy rebuild.

The young kid in me kind of showed, Mitchell said. Inexperience right there in that moment, because I think we were down (13) and we ended up losing by 21.

Embiid later hit a jumper to make it 95-82. When he exited to a standing ovation with 1:50 left, the Sixers were up 18 and had secured their second win in five games.

It was all fun after the game. We shook hands, Embiid said of Mitchell. It was just about having fun.

Limited Youth Bruce Matthews Jersey Mitchell scored 17 points on 6 of 19 shooting, Rodney Hood added 13 while making 5 of 17 shots, and the Jazz shot 35.3 percent from the field in losing for the eighth time in 10 games.

Despite the struggles from Hundley, who also lost a fumble, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Hundley will remain the team’s starter.

Brett Hundley is our starter. I believe in Brett Hundley, McCarthy told reporters after the game, which was Green Bay’s first home shutout loss since Nov. 19, 2006. It didn’t go very well obviously. We understand the standard that has been set here. We are all part of it. Brett Hundley is part of that too.

We will burn the tape. It’s unfortunate because of the way the team has practiced this week. You like to see the team have success when they do so well in practice.

The Packers are now 1-4 since starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his right collarbone on Green Bay’s second offensive series in a 23-10 loss to the Vikings on Oct. 15. The Packers were 4-1 entering that game, but now are 5-5 and trending in the wrong direction.

Jerry Jones apologizes for racially insensitive remark from 2013

broncos_070Cowboys owner Jerry Jones apologized Friday after a video surfaced of him making a racially off-color remark in 2013.

In the video, which appeared on the tabloid website The Blast earlier Friday, a man at a Dallas hotel approached Jones and asked if he had some words of congratulations for the man’s new fiancée.

“A joke that was intended to add humor at the request of a fan in a light-hearted moment was taken totally out of intent. I’m sorry we’re in this state of mind as a country, but if you’re looking for a racist, Jerry Jones is not that guy.”

Whitehead’s wife, Shannon, disputed the claims that he stepped on Leno on purpose, saying Tahir would “never intentionally attempt to hurt another player.”

I’m appalled. My husband would NEVER intentionally attempt to hurt another player. I won’t stand by and allow you or any other media personnel to question his integrity or defame him in any way.

Dressed for success: It might just be happenstance, but the Celtics were 36-12 (.750) last season when Stevens wore a tie. That trend seems to have continued this year, as the Celtics are now 11-1 when Stevens sports a tie. Boston also is 11-1 when they wear their green jerseys, which they’ve worn twice at home this year (against the Lakers and Warriors).

Horford has been the team’s MVP: Irving has been nothing short of spectacular in recent games, but Horford has quietly been the most important player for Boston. Horford, routinely matched up on the opposition’s top scoring big, is allowing 0.742 points per play, according to Synergy Sports defensive data. broncos_090

Devonta Freeman injury update: Falcons RB to miss Week 11 vs. Seahawks with concussion

The Falcons running back is unlikely to play in Atlanta’s Week 11 matchup against the Seahawks after suffering a concussion in Sunday’s win over the Cowboys, ESPN reported.

The Falcons are scheduled to visit the Seahawks at 8:30 p.m. ET for a Monday Night Football showdown.
Jordan Matthews Authentic Jersey
For his franchise-record six sacks of Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott, Clayborn earned $750,000 Roy Oswalt Jersey in incentives, ESPN reported.

Originally, Clayborn’s contract called for him to get the $750,000 in bonuses if he reached eight sacks on the season. He already had two sacks this year, so his extra six on Sunday landed him the extra cash.

If Clayborn reaches 10 sacks this season, he is eligible for another $1.25 million.

Before Sunday, Clayborn’s game-high for sacks was just two. On top of his six sacks Sunday, the Falcons tacked on another two, meaning Prescott was sacked eight total times.

Jones threatened to sue the league in 2012 after being penalized $10 million in salary cap room for manipulating a contract. But in 2014, Jones publicly supported Goodell after the Ray Rice domestic violence mismanagement, Goodell’s low point as commissioner. He’s acknowledged that he’s mishandled this, Jones said on his Dallas radio show at the time, and he said that he’ll do better in the future.

The four hours that shook up the college football world

Welcome to the most eventful and crowded slate of college football games you’ll find this season! Five games spread across four networks all kicking off at the same time.

The NFL defended the minimal consequences for Brown based on the fact that his former wife did not cooperate with the league’s investigation. The league later re-opened its investigation when documents were released in which Brown admitted to abusing his wife repeatedly. They issued a six-game suspension at the conclusion of that investigation.

Now for a here’s-how-the-sausage-is-made moment: Refs and head coaches have an agreement that if there’s any doubt whether the team wants to accept or decline a penalty, the ref will look at the sideline and the coach will make some sort of signal about his intentions. And so CBS had a camera replaying Pederson yelling at Morelli (if my lip-reading is correct): Look at me! I wanna go for two!
Joe Namath Game Jersey
And so the Eagles did, and LaGarrette Blount barreled in from the one, and it was 18-10 instead of 17-10. Good call by Pederson, obviously; the coach in that circumstance can either take the one point and assess the five yards on the kickoff, or he can go half the distance from the 2-yard line to try for the two-point conversion. I think more coaches should go for two from the 2, but moving it to the 1 makes the call a must-do, even if it means risking taking one point off the board. Smart by Pederson.

Just a quick commendation for my podcast co-host and personal stylist Andy Benoit.

ADPs are still too fresh in the collective memory. It’s too early for most owners to consider bailing out on that epic a scale. Even if Vucevic suddenly becomes a permanent fixture in fantasy’s top 10 (and he won’t), it will be at least a month until owners can expect fair market value in return for his services. Draft nights have to fade into memory first.

I say this every autumn, so allow me to say it again: Don’t let your screaming about wanting a 16-team playoff cause you to miss the 16-team playoff that’s already happening right before your angry, bloodshot eyes.

The Clippers know the math. Perhaps they are angling to squeeze Jordan in a tight free agency market. Whether they can build a contender around Griffin and Jordan will depend in part on what the number is on Jordan’s salary, Rivers admits.

They are tremendous athletic achievements, no doubt.

After taking the blame for the Lakers’ loss on Saturday in Utah and even the team’s lack of offense and pace of late, a more aggressive Ball pushed the ball whenever he could and looked to score more than he had in the previous four games. The Lakers (3-4) played with the same urgency, stopping a two-game slide and halting Detroit’s three-game winning streak.

Ball, who had no turnovers in a game for the first time in his pro career, finished with 13 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks. Ball’s assists total wasn’t nearly an indication of how much the rookie moved the ball. Often times, his pass led to a hockey assist as Ball would initiate movement with a pass to a teammate, who immediately hit a cutting teammate for a basket.

The Browns had their top left tackle in Joe Thomas, but only by adding guard Kevin Zeitler and center J.C. Tretter did the line turn into somewhat of a strength in 2017. Their receiving corps has been a mess the past two seasons, and the one bright spot, Terrelle Pryor, has proved elsewhere that his production was more flash than substance. Neither an aging Gary Barnidge last year nor a fresh David Njoku this year is close to the top receiving options in Houston and Philadelphia.

Back-to-back Stanley Cups, the first repeat run by an NHL team in two decades. Consecutive playoff MVP honors for captain Sidney Crosby, which hadn’t happened in 25 years.

At some point, that “road to victory” on which the song instructs the Eagles to “fly” is bound to encounter a pothole or two. The 49ers aren’t the kind of defense that takes advantage of Jason Peters’ absence. nike_patriots-098

Wood dropped to a knee on the mound and watched the ball land in the seats and rebound onto the field.

When exactly Luck was injured is hard to tell, because the Colts quarterback never came out of a Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans. He even finished that game by throwing two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to dig the Colts out of a 27-14 Brandon Dubinsky Authentic Jersey hole and lead the team to a 35-33 win.

Springer put the Astros ahead when he drove a curveball, Wood’s 84th and final pitch, over the left-field scoreboard and into the Crawford Boxes. Wood dropped to a knee on the mound and watched the ball land in the seats and rebound onto the field.

Houston was nine outs from winning for the 18th time in 20 home games since returning to Minute Maid Park after Hurricane Harvey, and from becoming the first major league team to start a postseason 8-0 at home.

“The coolest part was Brian McCann waiting on the other side of home plate,” Fisher said. “That was awesome. That meant everything.”

Just when it appeared the 2017 World Series couldn’t get more entertaining or unpredictable, it cranked the volume up to 11 with new and extreme storylines. The Astros and Dodgers have one game minimum and two games maximum to put a cap on the 2017 season. That’s probably a good thing, because the pitching arms are close to shot, the pulses are racing at hyperspeed and the nerve endings are day-to-day.

Instead of playing one poor half and 30 strong minutes Saturday against Texas Tech, the Sooners limited their struggles to the opening quarter. Hey, it’s a step in the right direction. OU can make more progress toward another Big 12 title this week on the road at Oklahoma State.

Elhassan: Dion Waiters. Despite a strong game against the Wolves on Monday night, Waiters has started slowly in the early going, leading to a question he is bound to hear whenever he struggles from the field (42 percent overall and 31 percent from 3 entering Monday night): Was last season’s shooting improvement a contract year aberration? Although he shouldn’t be expected to be Miami’s sole offensive option, he can’t replace quality with quantity.

From record stores to downtown bars to local high schools, the entire city of Houston is wrapped up in the Astros’ World Series run. But the reason it means so much is that this city of survivors knows it’s all relative.

Seguin opened the scoring in the second with Canucks forward Thomas Vanek in the penalty box for the second time in the first three minutes of the period. Seguin one-timed his seventh goal of the season with an Alex Ovechkin-like shot while down on one knee at 3:11. The goal broke Vancouver’s streak of 14 consecutive penalties killed.

So today we had a lot of free time, so I decided I got to get a chain, so I went to Home Depot down the street, bought a chain, and I was like, if I score, my celebration is going to be the bike thing, Smith-Schuster said.

An upset against Ohio State, though?

The Hawkeyes have played some tight games with the Buckeyes, but their last win in the series came in 2004 during one of Ohio State’s few subpar seasons.

We had some really good football games with them. We had some that weren’t so good, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.
