Toronto was behind 2-1 after 40 minutes despite outshooting Chicago 26-15.

Despite the loss, it was a memorable night for Lindsay, who became the school’s career leader in all-purpose yards with a run in the third quarter. He now has 4,989 yards to surpass Rodney Stewart’s mark of 4,828 set from 2008-11.

“It’s awesome for what Phillip’s done for our program,” MacIntyre said.

Arizona: Tate or Dawkins? Dawkins or Tate? Doesn’t seem much of a dilemma as to who will start next week, given the play of Tate. “I don’t mind you asking that,” Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez said. “Khalil played pretty well today.”

It wasn’t until the midway point of the second that Toronto picked up its pace and was awarded its first power-play opportunity after some sustained pressure by Matthews in the offensive zone.

The Leafs failed to capitalize on the man advantage, but Zaitsev put them on the board soon after, streaking in from the Blackhawks blue line and taking a pass from Brown before snapping the puck five-hole on Forsberg at 10:20.

Matthews nearly tied the game on a 2-on-1 rush five minutes later with a toe-drag into a wrist shot, but Forsberg stayed with him and got his right arm on the puck.

The final eight minutes of the second were filled with minor penalties and Tampa Bay Lightning Cheap Jerseys lots of 4-on-4 hockey, but no one was able to take advantage of the open ice.

Matthews had another good scoring chance before the period was through, but Wholesale NFL Jerseys Supply Forsberg was there again to stop him.

“We lost a lot of momentum there, fortunate to come out of (the second) with the lead,” said Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville.

Slavin, Hurricanes beat Minnesota 5-4 in shootout

The Carolina Hurricanes were a fraction of a second from opening their season with a victory in regulation. As tough as shootouts have been for this team over the years, winning one of those was an even more satisfying way to start.

Jaccob Slavin scored in the tiebreaker and the Hurricanes beat Minnesota 5-4 on Saturday night after the Wild forced overtime with a goal with 0.3 seconds left in regulation.

“Just got to focus on what’s next — obviously, there’s nothing we can do about it after it goes in,” Slavin said. “So we’ve just got to focus on overtime there.”

But unlike recent Virginia teams, the Cavaliers bounced back and won 28-21 on Saturday. Benkert threw three touchdown passes as they reeled of 21 straight points, the defense held Duke to 255 yards and made a stand in the closing minutes to finish off their third consecutive victory Saturday.

“Our offense made timely plays, we made timely stops,” senior linebacker Micah Kiser said. “That’s why we won it.”

Sophomore wide receiver Joe Reed, whose first season ended with a 2-10 record, was a bit more excited.

“We feel like we have the whole season in front of us,” he said. “We feel like nobody can beat us, just positivity all around.”

Benkert settled down after Jeremy McDuffie intercepted him and returned it 42 yards. A big part of why was that Virginia, whose offensive line was not giving the quarterback time Wholesale Jerseys Cheap against an aggressive and effective pass rush, went to a short Toronto Maple Leafs Cheap Jerseys passing game.

Donald Trump wants ‘son of a b—’ anthem protestors off the field

President Donald Trump found it necessary to condemn NFL players who protest the national anthem during a rally Friday in Alabama.

He hasn’t said much about his former team in the several years since, but he opened up recently in an interview with Graham Bensinger. The quarterback was extremely candid, and detailed why he didn’t work out with the 49ers.

“I think in the time, I knew how dysfunctional the work enviornment I was in at the time, what it was,” Smith said. “I knew it was really dysfunctional, I knew that this wasn’t the way successful places operated. But when you’re a young QB, it’s hard to vocalize that. It’s hard to stand up and say that, it’s hard to make that change.”

Productivity on the field isn’t exactly new to the former Akron standout, the Chargers’ fifth-round pick in the 2016 draft. Brown broke 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinee Jason Taylor’s single-season sacks record with 12 as a senior and finished his Zips career with 41 1/2 tackles for loss.

“There is no greater unifier in this country than sports, and unfortunately, nothing more divisive than politics. I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal. Our players are intelligent, thoughtful and care deeply about our community and I support their right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful.”

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, another contributor to the Trump New York Yankees Cheap Jerseys campaign, said the President’s comments “were divisive and counterproductive to what our NFL Jerseys Wholesale country needs right now,” and used the team’s contributions during Hurricane Harvey as an example of unity.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft, a Trump ally, ‘deeply disappointed’ by president’s tone

Robert Kraft’s friendship with President Donald Trump only goes so far.

The Patriots owner, who donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration committee and gave him a custom Super Bowl ring, issued a strongly worded rebuke to the president Sunday morning in the wake of Trump’s criticism of the NFL and its players.

The Dolphins linebacker reportedly was found by police at LAX early Sunday morning trying to board a plane to Pennsylvania. His baby lives in Pennsylvania with its mother, and Timmons was missing his child, according to reports.

A Dolphins representative came to the airport and brought Timmons back to the team, which determined he wasn’t fit to play the Chargers later that day. Instead, he was to meet with doctors to determine the root of the issue.

“No one has ever seen anything like it,” one unidentified person told ESPN about the problem facing Timmons. The source was adamant that Timmons isn’t dealing with an early onset of symptoms related CTE.

Another source said Timmons, 31, wants to get the issue cleared up as soon as possible and that he “wants to resume playing immediately.”

“The Los Angeles Rams, our fan base and our city are all comprised of people from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs. When we recognize that this diversity is our strength and Pittsburgh Penguins Cheap Jerseys seek to understand different perspectives, we are more enlightened and empathetic human beings. Our organization is committed to celebrating diversity, inclusion and respect, values that help define Los Angeles. …

“We believe in the tenets of the national anthem, which is a pillar of this country; just as freedom of speech is another pillar and a constitutional right. We will continue to support our players’ freedom to peacefully express themselves and the meaningful efforts they make Nike NFL Jerseys Size Chart to bring about positive change in our country.”

NFL reportedly considering moving Chargers back to San Diego

Could the NFL really send the Chargers back to San Diego? It’s something being discussed, according to longtime NFL reporter Don Banks.

The former Sports Illustrated reporter, who has worked for NFL Media and currently writes for The Athletic, told a San Diego radio station on Thursday the NFL never wanted to lose San Diego as a market and could force Chargers owner Dean Spanos to take the team back.

“I have been painted a picture from people I’ve talked to that the league was sympathetic … to Dean Spanos’ plight,” Banks told The Mighty 1090. “Feels like he had been a ‘league guy’ feels like he had waited kind of his turn on the relocation front, thought he had the votes the year before — Jerry Jones and Stan Kroenke pretty much outmaneuvered Dean and Mark Davis with the Raiders to be the first in line for LA. So it was almost as if this was a bit of a make up.

But thanks to Giants co-owner Steve Tisch and his private jet, he was able to fly home immediately and meet his daughter for the first time.

Rosas said he watched Karsyn’s birth via Facetime, but had to focus on the upcoming game. The orginal plan was for Lopez to be induced Monday, so Rosas could be there for the birth. However, Karsyn decided to arrive early Sunday morning.

“I saw it all (on the phone),” Rosas said Wednesday. “I was kind of Wholesale MLB Jerseys floating Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China everywhere. (To hold her) was amazing, it’s a feeling you can’t really describe. I was told that all the time, and what a special moment it was when I first got to hold her. She’s an angel; she doesn’t make a sound or cry. She’s good, she’s healthy.”

Philadelphia has the chops to be a playoff team this season.

An eight-play, 83-yard New Orleans drive that included a 52-yard pass from Drew Brees to Tommylee Lewis stalled at the Minnesota 6-yard line, where Wil Lutz connected on a 24-yard field goal, his third successful kick of the game. 19-9, Vikings.

A seven-play, 54-yard drive on the Vikings’ first possession of the second half, which almost ended with a Latavius Murray fumble (recovered by offense), instead ended with a 32-yard field goal by Kai Forbath. 19-6, Vikings.

The Eagles also made moves on the defensive side of the ball, and the results should be frightening for players like Kirk Cousins, Eli Manning, and Dak Prescott. As The Ringer’s Robert Mays points out, the Eagles had the league’s third-best pressure rate when it came to attacking quarterbacks in 2016 — 31.6 percent of opponent dropbacks ended in panic.

This offseason, Philadelphia bolstered a line led by Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham by adding Chris Long, Timmy Jernigan, and Derek Barnett, a first-round pick who recorded 32 sacks and 52 tackles for loss in three seasons at Tennessee. That’s a deep and explosive platoon who will terrorize offensive linemen.

If that group isn’t enough to force bad throws, the team also addressed its secondary by picking up cornerback Ronald Darby from the Bills (in exchange for receiver Jordan Matthews) and drafting West Virginia ballhawk Rasul Douglas (eight interceptions last fall) in the third round. Second-round pick Sidney Jones could also make an impact at corner once he recovers from the torn Achilles tendon that kept him from being a Day 1 pick.

A strong defense got stronger, and a weak offense addressed its biggest Cheap Kids Jerseys NHL problems. The Eagles have a tough schedule — 10 of their games come against teams with winning records Cheap Liverpool Soccer Jerseys in 2016, and two are against our other two rebound candidates — but Philadelphia has the chops to be a playoff team this season.

There was true excitement in the stands, even if a familiar conclusion unfolded.

Dorsey was on the field because the quarterbacks in front of him, Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn, were out with injuries. By the end of this one, Dorsey was injured, too.

His three interceptions in the game were his three worst plays from an expected points standpoint, though the two sacks he suffered — quarterbacks receive part of the blame for sacks in QBR — didn’t help, either. Dorsey’s most damaging interception was a pass just a few yards beyond the line of scrimmage intended for Braylon Edwards that Leon Hall picked off and returned to the house.

Dorsey and the Browns were ultimately outdueled by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bengals, 14-0. It was the final appearance of Dorsey’s NFL career.

Kizer’s second half featured an ill-advised interception on a corner route, but he also enjoyed his best sequence of the day late in the fourth quarter. A 29-yard seam route to Ricardo Louis. A 22-yard checkdown to Isaiah Crowell. Kizer’s TD pass to Corey Coleman on fourth down trimmed the lead to three with 3:36 remaining.

Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger didn’t give the ball back. A 38-yard pass to Antonio Brown sealed another Steelers victory and improved Big Ben’s record against Cleveland to 21-2. But this time, the Browns weren’t left with a feeling of hopelessness. Roethlisberger, who also has taken quite a few hits, offered encouragement to Kizer.

“We’re both from Northwest Ohio, both wear No. 7,” Roethlisberger said. “I Cheap Jordan Jerseys thought he played a great game. He did some things against a great defense that gets after it, but I told Cheap Jerseys World him afterward, ‘What an awesome start.'”

Goff made the same mistakes throughout the 2017 preseason.

Intelligence on the football field requires putting in the effort to learn about past players, and Awuzie has plenty of role models to take note of, saying: “There’s a lot of players that play my position that I can look at, look at the techniques that they use, for me to get better.

“Players like Darrelle Revis, and Nnamdi Asomugha. He [Asomugha]was a great player and that’s also a player, since he was Nigerian, I automatically gravitated towards. I always used to watch how he played, on youtube.”

Now in Dallas, Awuzie has readily accepted tutelage from all corners but has been inspired by veteran linebacker Sean Lee and his assistance to the rookie defenders, saying Lee is the epitome of a leader for young players.

Goff’s college offense stifled his development of many things, but pocket navigation may be the most critical. Even when he impressed at Cal, Goff rarely utilized proper footwork and spatial awareness of the traffic around him.

Goff’s delayed upfield steps in the pocket are turning into rushed throws, sacks and turnovers in the NFL. Goff last year suffered 26 sacks on 240 drop-backs, one of the worst sack percentages in the league. Half of them were on third downs, almost equal to the number of first downs he converted.

Against the Chargers, for example, he was reluctant to step up, stared down his primary target and was strip sacked for an eventual defensive touchdown.

But along with his lack of pocket movement skills, something that Cheap Jerseys US was expected in his NFL development, Goff’s confidence as a mid-range passer has suffered. Once considered Cheap Jerseys Website his best skill set, Goff’s anticipation has given way to indecisiveness, over-placement of throws and repeated missed opportunities.

How much of an impact could Watt make if this continues?

James Harrison led the Steelers with 5.0 sacks last season. Pittsburgh hasn’t had a player reach double-digit sacks since 2010 when Harrison finished with 10.5 and LaMarr Woodley added 10. It’s no coincidence that’s the last time Pittsburgh reached the Super Bowl. Watt even beat out older brother J.J’s NFL debut, a five-tackle performance against the Colts on Sept. 11, 2011.

T.J. obviously isn’t the same kind of megastar as his older brother, but he is the prototype edge rusher for defensive coordinator Keith Butler’s scheme. The debut will only enhance Watt’s celebrity in Pittsburgh, and the seven sacks have set the bar for the defense.

Yet there’s Watt, with the spotlight shining, already looking for more. He’s bound to attract more attention along the way.

“I’m not complaining at all,” he said. “I feel like there were a lot of plays left on the table today that I should have made. I’m never satisfied with my performance.”

Lamarcus Joyner got in on the fun in the third quarter with a 29-yard interception return for a touchdown to make it a 37-7 game.

Tolzien nearly got a third, but was bailed out by Donte Moncrief, who got a facemask penalty instead. It stopped Tolzien from tying the NFL record for pick-sixes in a game, with three.

Tolzien would see his afternoon end early in the fourth quarter, when the team brought in Jacoby Brissett. Tolzien finished completing 9-of-18 passes for 128 yards, and two picks.

Jared Goff looked like a mess last season. Part Cheap Jerseys And Sunglasses of that was being thrown Cheap Ireland Rugby Jerseys in during the middle of the season when things hit the fan, part of it was a coaching change, and part of it was that there just wasn’t a lot of talent around him.

The Rams are already overextended on the salary cap and don’t have the space needed to oblige Donald’s salary demands.

Donald is due $3.225 million this season, including a base of $1.8 million and a prorated signing bonus on the fully guaranteed four-year, $10.1 million contract he signed as a rookie. That deal includes a fifth-year option that would pay him $6.9 million next season. Donald is seeking a new deal in the neighborhood of $19 million annually to put him among the highest-paid defensive tackles in the NFL.

The two sides are still trying to find some middle ground on what could be a cap-friendly deal.

On Monday afternoon, Niners coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that although Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys Foster’s injury wasn’t as serious as the team first feared, Foster won’t be back as quickly as he hoped. Following further Cheap Germany Soccer Jerseys tests on the ankle, Shanahan said Foster suffered a high ankle sprain.

The Niners don’t have a timetable for Foster’s return, but it will take some time for him to get back on the field.

“We don’t know exactly with Reuben,” Shanahan said. “We’ll put him in the boot here for a little bit, but those tend to be a month [or] a little more. I can’t put exactly a date on it. [That’s] my experience with high ankle sprains.”

With 3:33 to go in the opening quarter of Sunday’s game, Foster moved toward Carolina running back Christian McCaffrey, but his right foot appeared to catch on the playing surface as he lunged forward.
