Takk McKinley sacked Jared Goff and danced like he was an actual falcon flapping his wings

Falcons pass rusher Takk McKinley did what he does best in the first quarter against the Rams and sacked Jared Goff.

Somebody yells out to Peters, “Let’s Go Marcus!” Peters then replies, “Shit, where we goingHome?”

Peters is always going to keep it real. After he got beat for two touchdowns against Washington, he was honest about his bad performance. But then when asked about a fumble he forced, he gave an all-time quote.

“That made my game from hella weak to weak, you feel me?” He added, “I’m not hella weak, I’m just weak this week. Next week I’ll get back on my shit though so yeah.”

Peters is fun, and it’s great we’re just at the beginning of his career.

It’s an alarming turn of events for a few reasons. The Seahawks have an injury or eight on defense. But here’s the main issue: A couple weeks ago my podcast co-host and bunraku omozukai (the book I’m reading with my 5-year-old includes a lot of material on Japanese puppetry) Andy Benoit wrote a piece highlighting the risk of inconsistency when your offense relies on Wilson’s improvisational, out-of-structure playmaking (yes, even when you bake that out-of-structure playmaking into your system, as teams like the Seahawks do).

He spent spring break of his senior year standing on the sideline at Tide practice, preparing himself for the fall. He uses his Sundays to watch film with coaches. Alabama staffers trade stories of walking into a dark Mal Moore Athletic Complex after hours to find one screen ablaze, Fitzpatrick pausing and rewinding.

“He’s the standard of the program,” says junior running back Damien Harris, a top NFL prospect who credits his success this year to his offseason of working out with Fitzpatrick. Teammates refer to Fitzpatrick as “Coach Saban’s son,” because he’s the only person whose performance reliably makes the famously stone-faced coach smile.

“I just like being around him,” Saban says. “I like the way he goes about his work. It’s fun to see him improve and take on new challenges. He’s just one of those favorite guys.”

Rather than accept defeat, Humphrey put on an Alabama jumpsuit and joined his alma mater in exiting the tunnel for the second half! In the end, he witnessed another National championship victory for the Crimson Tide, as they defeated the Georgia Bulldogs in an overtime thriller!

How did Jaguars coach Doug Marrone not challenge the spot on this LeSean McCoy first down?

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone had the best angle in all of EverBank Field for a LeSean McCoy run that appeared to be stopped short of the line to gain by linebacker Myles Jack.

Instead, the line judge gave the Buffalo Bills a generous spot that resulted in a first down.

Taylor was placed in concussion protocol after the hit.

What does this mean for the Bills? Taylor’s more than likely going to be done for the game after the hit. Peterman was put in over Taylor earlier in the season and threw five first-half picks against the Chargers and was quickly replaced with Taylor in the second half.

Peterman would eventually throw the game-sealing interception to Jalen Ramsey, sending the Jaguars to the Divisional Round to play the Steelers. At this point, the Bills’ only concern is making sure that Taylor is all right.

But he’s also been Rodgers’ most targeted and most productive receiver over the past two seasons, so is it a risk they can take? As for Cobb, he has been relatively disappointing since his breakout 2014 season, but he’s also a moveable chess piece type in an offense that lacks them (especially since Martellus Bennett skipped town). Adams’ combination of youth and production made him the obvious choice to keep in Green Bay. But they’re going to have to ask one (or both) of their veterans to restructure, and might ultimately have to make a decision on who is expendable.

OK, they weren’t actually celebrating, but fans still threw a parade to mark the ignominious occasion. There was a fair bit of debate as to whether people should attend, but ultimately, around 2,500 to 3,200 showed up in downtown Cleveland.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom, though — fans were also there for a good cause, donating well over $17,000 to the local food bank.

The Browns Parade raised $17,157 for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, which equates to 68,628 meals, according to their website. With perishable food donations included, over 70,000 meals will be provided thanks to the Parade.

NFL playoffs: Picks, odds for Falcons vs. Rams wild-card game in L.A.

Defending NFC champs against biggest one-season turnaround in the NFL? Yes, please.

Phillips will set up his secondary to contain Julio Jones with varied coverage looks and make Ryan beat them with other guys. Meanwhile, McVay, as he usually does, will get Goff focused on the best matchups, working on the advantages for the inside, intermediate passing game with Gurley and rookie slot wideout Cooper Kupp.

Quinn has made sure his team has become physically and mentally tougher to respond to adversity. The Falcons were overlooked between the Cowboys, Seahawks and Packers in last year’s NFC playoffs, but it didn’t matter to them one bit. In that sense, they already are prepared to thrive as big underdogs.

With him, Schneider pushed to the and kicked him at least 30 times with steel-toed boots while begged for his life, according to court documents.Right behind Hooker is cornerback Marshon Lattimore at number three overall.Bortles spoke highly of the group now under the direction of Marrone, who was hired to run the offensive line after being the head coach of the Buffalo Bills the previous two seasons.

The Falcons are looking to get to their third conference championship game since 2012, while the Eagles are looking to get to their first since the Donovan McNabb era in 2008.

Atlanta kicker Matt Bryant hit four field goals in his team’s win last week, becoming the third kicker in league history to do so in a playoff game at age 40-or-older.

Philadelphia defensive end Brandon Graham led the team with 9 1/2 sacks in 2017. He had recorded more than six sacks just once in his first seven years in the NFL.

The Patriots went 13-3 and have homefield advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. It’s the 15th straight winning season for the Patriots, who have won at least 12 games an NFL record eight straight years.

Created in 2003 and named after late Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney, the Rooney Rule seeks to create more diversity in the NFL coaching ranks by requiring teams to interview minority candidates. There have been cases in the past where teams skirted the rule by interviewing people before settling on the coach they wanted all along, which can lead to fewer minorities getting a serious chance to get a head coaching job. Currently, only six of 32 NFL head coaches are African-American, and there is just one Latino head coach.patriots_019_eb686dcf5e2c16fc-180x180

Sammy Watkins was held in the end zone on crucial 4th down, but the refs missed it

The Atlanta Falcons came out on top over the Los Angeles Rams, but it wouldn’t come without a questionable no-call in a day of questionable officiating.

It appeared on a foutth and goal from the Falcons’ 5-yard line, that linebacker Deion Jones held Sammy Watkins. The Rams didn’t convert on the play, and would turn the ball over on downs with no call made:

That they can not simply do their jobs. This is a topic, especially with all that is being reported lately, that we would expect our political leaders to take a lead, but sadly, that will not happen. So while it saddens me to read it, thank you for publishing this, as the only way things will improve is by getting it out in the open and having people realize they can not stay silent.?

His mother bailed him out at 3 am. She wasn’t mad. She simply asked, “What’s next?” When he left Alabama he had been excoriated by Tide fans on Twitter and on the team message boards, and he had read every comment. “This kid can’t play in the SEC,” he says now, repeating the criticisms. “He’s selfish. He’s a crybaby. He’s not built for it. He’s a coward. He’s not good enough.” Kamara was barred from transferring to an SEC school, per Alabama stipulations, but he could have joined another conference and sat out a season. He didn’t want that. He needed to get back to the SEC. “Had something to prove,” he says.

Less than a week later Kamara was in Kansas, enrolling at Hutchinson Community College. That year he did nothing but go to class, then to practice, then back to his dorm room to play Call of Duty on PS4 all night. When teammates traveled to Wichita or Manhattan to party on weekends, Kamara never joined in. He knew where he wanted to go, and this was just a quick detour. He got the bull nose ring that year; he was slowly finding himself and growing comfortable with what he found.

The Falcons have stayed relatively healthy this season, their defense is fast, young and still improving, and the offense is oh-so-close on a weekly basis. I think they can make noise in January, if they can figure out a way to not let one get away at home against the Panthers on Sunday.

The Patriots would take the first down, and move into Titans territory, eventually scoring with a Chris Hogan touchdown reception from Tom Brady with 1:52 left in the first half.

It’s not the way the Titans were hoping to finish out the first half, after getting off to a relatively good start after leading the first quarter 7-0.

Depending on how the game goes, we might see this call come back to bite the Titans.giants_116

Porter logged about two minutes in Mizzou’s first official game of the season against Iowa State.

Comparing Jackson head to head with Bridges and eliminating team need as a factor, it’s pretty clear the big guy has a leg up. NBA front office members I’ve spoken with over the past few weeks have been down on Bridges. He’s been producing for the Spartans, but has struggled to make a convincing case for himself when it comes to expanding his ball skills and ability to create shots. While his energy and high-caliber athleticism will certainly be a sell, his key stats are down across the board and his three-point shooting has (predictably) regressed. He’s never had ideal length for a forward, and without an ideal shot-generation element to his game, he may wind up positionless in a negative sense. Bridges faced high expectations coming back to school, and as it stands he needs to prove some things. Come June, Jackson would be my bet.

I remember during the hiring season in January 2016 that McAdoo was the “hot candidate,” with the Giants locking him down before teams like the Eagles got him and, according to many, had to “settle” for Doug Pederson. Pederson is now a leading candidate for coach of the year.

The Chiefs can clinch the AFC West with a win over the Dolphins or a Chargers loss to the Jets.

The Rams can clinch the NFC West with a win over the Titans and a Seahawks loss or tie. The Titans, on the other hand, can clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 2008 with a win. In the NFC South, the Panthers can clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Buccaneers. The Saints can clinch the NFC South with a win over the Falcons and a Panthers loss. The Falcons can clinch a playoff berth by beating the Saints.

In the AFC, home-field advantage is at stake for the Patriots in a home matchup with the Bills. The Pats will need losses by the Steelers and Jaguars to lock it up. The Steelers can clinch a first-round bye with a win and a Jaguars loss.

The Bruins opened the scoring at 8:13 of the first on the man advantage. After a couple of solid saves by Condon, a rebound popped right out to Spooner.

“If James misses time, it is going to be tough,” forward Trevor Ariza said. “Since I have been here, he’s been here, he has been on the court, he has been available. So for him to have to miss time [potentially], it would definitely be tough, definitely be an adjustment.”
