Man charged in crash that hospitalized Patriots LB Harvey Langi

A 25-year-old Massachusetts man has been charged in connection with a car crash that injured five people, including New England Patriots rookie linebacker Harvey Langi and his wife, Cassidy.

Elliott also helped out through the air. His 72 receiving yards all came on this single beautiful touchdown play.

It’s a simple screen pass, and Elliott finds a lane thanks to a well-timed block from Martin and a little help from receiver Brice Butler. Then, he’s gone:

Dez Bryant and Witten were both able to pull off some big plays against the 49ers. Bryant finished with seven catches for 63 yards and a touchdown, and Witten had four catches for 54 yards and this incredible one-handed touchdown catch. Prescott finished with 234 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions, and a passer rating of 134.

The Steelers have won two straight since their home dud Oct. 8 against the Jaguars. Since throwing five interceptions in that loss, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown three touchdown passes with just one pick in wins over the Chiefs and Bengals. He’ll face a Lions defense ranked 11th against the pass and tied for third with nine interceptions.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is coming off his own rough outing, tossing three interceptions in a 52-38 loss Oct. q5 to the Saints. He has faced the Steelers just once, and it didn’t go well. Stafford went 19 of 46 for 362 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in a 37-27 loss in 2013.

Tyler Kroft, TE, Cincinnati Bengals (10.7 percent): Finding a tight end isn’t easy, but with players such as Rob Gronkowski, Evan Engram, Kyle Rudolph, Hunter Henry and others set to go on bye over the next two weeks, a lot of teams will need a spot starter. Kroft, essentially stepping in for Tyler Eifert, has 14 catches in his past three games and three touchdowns to go with it. He’s a usable tight end the next two weeks or for someone who might have been relying upon a player such as Charles Clay in that spot (or who has an upcoming bye to account for).chargers_124

Marcus Peters Jersey testifies Marshawn Lynch Jersey was trying to calm him down

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been shopping his story to book publishers in recent weeks, sources told ESPN.
Women's Nike Buffalo Bills #75 Eddie Yarbrough Royal Blue Team Color Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Kaepernick is being represented by agent Carlos Fleming, who also represents Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and tennis players Venus Williams and Nick Kyrgios.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Kaepernick already had signed a book deal with Random House, but a source told ESPN that no deal is in place.

Sources told ESPN that the Kaepernick team strategy was to wait until the first month of the NFL season had passed before considering his options. Once September went by without any team signing him, Kaepernick took two actions: He sued the NFL and shopped his story to publishers.

Martavis Bryant’s roller-coaster week took another turn Wednesday when the beleagured wide receiver was informed he will be inactive Sunday night against the Lions, according to ESPN.com.
Elite Womens Roger Staubach Jersey
The report also states that Bryant has been practicing on the scout team this week, with Justin Hunter taking his spot. The Steelers are down another player in that position with rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in the concussion protocol.

Authentic Houston Astros Jersey Bryant, after hauling in just three receptions the last two weeks, told ESPN’s Josina Anderson Tuesday that he would be open to a trade if his role doesn’t change.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin then fired back, saying Bryant is not available via trade and Womens Martellus Bennett Jersey that he would eventually speak with Bryant about his ongoing issues.

The Steelers have won two straight games, but could be short-handed on offense Sunday against the Lions.

Matthew Stafford Jersey passes even the incomplete ones were almost always hitting the hands of somebody.

In this case, that’s not exactly great, because that means that the defensive line was getting great pressure and impeding his line of sight.
Women's Vegas Golden Knights #18 James Neal Adidas Gray Home Premier NHL Jersey
Stafford had nine passes batted at or behind the line of scrimmage today, according to ESPN Stats & Info. It was the most by any QB in a game since batted passes started being tracked in 2009. Two of those were intercepted for touchdowns.

On Sunday, the defense still gave up 38 points and 347 total yards but made plays that were able to separate the Saints from the Lions:

Limited Womens Stan Musial Jersey It was like we had to build and recreate that muscle. Neil Walker Youth jersey After about four months, he was night and day. He began to look like himself. He had hope once again. Jamaal wants 10,000 career rushing yards. Jamaal wants to be part of that elite club and more. He wants to play at least two to three more years. He wants to win a Super Bowl.

The idea of purposely tanking in sports is nothing new. However, with the age of social media, sports pundits, and nonstop coverage, it seems to have at least been made public and closely followed by everyone. Examples of recent tanking in other sports, the Sixers in the NBA and the Astros in baseball have tried their hand at tanking. One successful, Astros, and one TBD, the Sixers.

Tanking is fascinating to the public because it’s something that makes sense. Get worse on purpose, draft a bunch of studs, and slowly build up your program to power. It also offers hope to a fan base. Would you rather wallow in perpetual .500 seasons, or get really bad for a few seasons with the hope you’re eventually going to be great again? I’ll let you answer that for yourself, but I’d go with the latter.

Roger Goodell, Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin Jersey co-sign letter in support of criminal justice reform

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin co-signed a letter sent to congressional leaders in support of a bipartisan legislative bill that seeks criminal justice reform.

The letter states the NFL is offering its full support of the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act of 2017, which seeks reforms and targets enhanced mandatory minimums for prior drug felons, increases judicial discretion for sentencing, and reforms enhanced mandatory minimums and sentences.

Bryant missed the entire 2016 season while serving a full-year suspension for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. It was Bryant’s second violation and suspension.

Authentic Kids Demaryius Thomas Jersey When he returned to the Steelers, Bryant said he wanted to have a man-to-man conversation with Ben Roethlisberger over Roethlisberger’s comments about his suspension. Mike Tomlin also had to ask Bryant and Sammie Coates to play nice on Twitter when the two got into it during the NFL draft.

Limited Mens Sam Mills Jersey In Pittsburgh, he’s just one piece of what should be a high-octane group. But the Steelers have struggled to get Le’Veon Bell going, and Ben Roethlisberger’s slow start has impacted the entire offense.

Bryant isn’t getting many targets. He’s the clear WR2 behind superstar Antonio Brown, but he also has to contend with Bell 鈥?one of the best receiving backs in the league 鈥?for targets. Eli Rogers and Juju Smith-Schuster are also getting looks from Roethlisberger.

So far this season, Bryant has 15 catches for 204 yards and a touchdown on 31 targets. And there are plenty of teams that need wide receivers who should be willing to entertain the possibility of trading for him.

Tom Brady ties Peyton Manning, Brett Favre for most regular season wins by NFL starting QB

Tom Brady is in the NFL’s record books once again. With the New England Patriots’ 19-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5, Brady collected his 186th regular season victory, tying Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most ever by a starting quarterback. Brady completed 30 of 40 attempts for 303 yards, one touchdown, and one pick en route to this milestone. Brady already owns the most career wins by a starting quarterback in NFL history, including his 25 playoff victories.

Why is this important?

If Brady continues to play after 40, he’ll probably break more records. In fact, he currently has 467 passing touchdowns, which is good for fourth all-time. Manning sits at the top of that list with 539. Brady could potentially shatter that record if he decides to play for another two years.

“Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event’s evolution and grow it even further,” Goodell said at the NFL owners meetings in New York. “We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality.”

The NFL said the draft site will use the AT&T Stadium field, stands and outdoor plazas, where the NFL Draft Experience festival will take place. The three-day event will again be televised live by ESPN.

“I really think we came up with an idea and concept that will deliver a unique experience unlike anything seen at the NFL draft so far,” Cowboys executive Charlotte Jones Anderson said.

Myles Garrett Jersey got a sack on his first NFL play

Myles Garrett’s debut has been long awaited. When he finally got onto the field, he did not waste any time in living up to the hype.

On his very first NFL snap, Garrett sacked Jets quarterback Josh McCown.
Authentic Youth Malcolm Mitchell Jersey
Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams spoke highly of him on Friday. He’s had a good week, Williams said via Cleveland.com. He really has had a very good week. There’s been a really good look in his eye.

Matt Cassell has thrown a TD pass to Phillip Supernaw; it’s tied at 10 in Miami. Incidentally, Supernaw is my response to a game featuring Cassel and Jay Cutler. This is an easy joke that thousands of people have already made, but I am incapable of not making it. I’m protected by dads’ rights, you can’t stop me.

Elite Youth Michael Schofield Jersey There is no naming of the sources, and Ian Rapoport is hardly a favorable source of information for fans of the Steelers, we all remember the ‘Ben Roethlisberger wants out’ reports, but this is still a surprise.

After all, it was the Steelers who stuck by Bryant when he was suspended by the NFL for violating the team’s substance abuse policy. They easily could have cut ties with the receiver, and decided to move on with a new receiver group.

Bryant is clearly frustrated, whether the official request of a trade happened or not, but he has to be wondering what is going on when rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster is playing more than him.

Kirk Cousins Jersey is starting to play better despite the fact that many of his top pass-catchers are struggling to get on the same page with him.

Limited Womens Alex Pietrangelo Jersey We’ll continue to do the work in our communities, said Jenkins, whose foundation focuses on helping disadvantaged youth. I feel that’s the most American thing to do — use our platform and influence with the stage that we have as NFL players and the league in general.

They are built on running game and defense, and when both of those things are out of whack, Trevor Siemian can’t win games by himself in a high-volume passing game. It becomes especially hard now with both Siemian and Emmanuel Sanders hurt.

He’s also dealing with a tough coordinator change away from McVay.

I think seeing some of the re-protection ID things that came up a little bit (Sunday) was very eye-opening to him, and I think it was a good experience for him.

Kizer, 21, was selected by Cleveland in the second round of this year’s draft. He is 81 of 159 with three touchdowns and nine interceptions after starting the first five games of the season.

The winless Browns are scheduled to host the Titans at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.

Limited Mens Terry O’Reilly Jersey It shouldn’t be this way, of course. But to be clear once again, what’s up for debate in federal court is how the league handled the investigation. That’s what keeps catching it, what the union is always able to wriggle through to keep the Tom Bradys, Ray Rices and Adrian Petersons at arm’s length from the NFL.

NFL executives and owners joined NFLPA executives and player leaders to review and discuss plans to utilize our platform to promote equality and effectuate positive change. We agreed that these are common issues and pledged to meet again to continue this work together.

Dick Stockton Jersey hilariously pulls a Ron Burgundy Jersey

Dick Stockton, like most TV broadcasters, relies on the teleprompter to give him direction.

During Sunday’s Jaguars-Rams game, Stockton made a hilarious mistake when he read his ad-prompt notes:

Two angry groups of fans have taken to social media to denounce the NFL. There’s #NoKaepernickNoNFL fans, who vow to boycott games until the blackballed Colin Kaepernick gets a job. Then there are #BoycottNFL fans, who believe the protests are un-American and unpatriotic.

Mens Xavier Grimble Jersey The Week 6 TV numbers brought mixed news. CBS says overnight TV ratings for Steelers-Chiefs rose 7 percent from Cowboys-Bengals last season. Overnight ratings for Giants-Broncos on NBC rose 21 percent from Colts-Texans the year before. According to SportsBusiness Daily, the Steelers-Chiefs 14.0 overnight is CBS’s best figure to date 鈥?but is the lowest Week 6 national window, regardless of network, since 2006.

As the league gathers with its players Tuesday in New York, the NFL clearly wants to get back to football.

The league’s TV business partners have gotten the memo. Their collective see-no-protest, hear-no-protest approach toward demonstrations during the national anthem will likely continue for the rest of the season.

Charles Harris Mens Jersey The game was much closer than the score indicates. Jacoby Brissett and the Colts were driving toward a potential game-tying touchdown with just under three minutes left before the Titans’ defense stopped Brissett on fourth and down and forced the Colts to turn the ball over. Titans running back Derrick Henry then took off on a 72-yard touchdown run to seal the win. Henry finished with 131 yards on 19 carries.

The Raiders looked like world beaters early, but then they ran into the Redskins and Broncos on the road.

Just when it looked like the Lions had turned the corner into consistent playoff power, they swerved in Ford Field. They’ll hope that defense just hit a slump, and what happened against Carolina isn’t a permanent bump.

Jared Goff and Todd Gurley were bound to come back to earth against a legitimate defense, but the positive from the loss to Seattle was a much-improved Rams defense of its own. The Rams will need to be a better complementary team to emerge as a playoff contender.

As long as the Jaguars can play an opponent against which they can run effectively and stop the pass, they’re in great shape for victories with young stars such as Leonard Fournette and Jalen Ramsey. The key to staying on top in the AFC South will be a steadier Blake Bortles and a sturdier run defense.

Derek Carr returns but may not be able to turn around all aspects of their disappointing offense. Still, he’s desperately needed with the defense doing even less to support Khalil Mack.

Deshaun Watson pretty much needs to be spectacular throughout his rookie season now with no more J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus fronting a defense that now sorely lacks playmakers beyond Jadeveon Clowney. Watson needs every bit of his athletic skill and that of the players around him for Houston to be a playoff team.

Jameis Winston continues on his roller-coaster ride, but there are signs he will stay on a high. They just need to support him with more commitment to the running garavens_120me and a healthier defense.

Two red-hot quarterbacks in Carson Wentz Jersey and Cam Newton Jersey will try to maintain their teams’ offensive momentum on a short week.

There are three winless NFL teams remaining five games into season and, unfortunately for the Browns, 49ers and Giants, they’re all staring at a sixth straight loss this week.

Because it won an offseason bidding war, Amazon will provide live streaming services for 10 Thursday Night Football games in 2017. Eagles vs. Panthers is the third of such games, which coincide with the CBS and NBC Thursday Night Football broadcast schedules. Amazon also provided a live stream for the Week 3 Jaguars-Ravens game in London. Twitter held the rights to live stream Thursday Night Football games in 2016.
Elite Womens Rex Burkhead Jersey
Per Bovada, the Panthers opened as three-point favorites over the Eagles, and that spread remained intact as of Thursday morning. The over/under points total was set at 46 1/2.

Thursday night’s game, set to kick off at 8:25 p.m. ET and air on CBS and NFL Network, also will be available via live stream through Amazon Prime Video. The Eagles (4-1) and Panthers (4-1) enter the game as leaders in their respective divisions. Philadelphia will exit Week 6 as the NFC East leader no matter what, while Carolina is working to hold off Atlanta in the NFC South.

Elite Womens Haason Reddick Jersey The key for Thursday night’s game will be the Eagles’ offense, which ranks third in the league with an average of 397.8 yards per game, against the Panthers’ defense, which ranks third in the league with an average of 274 yards allowed per game.

Watson’s 100.7 passer rating through five weeks ranks No. 7 in the NFL. His 49-yard touchdown run was the game-winner in Cincinnati, and he went toe-to-toe with Tom Brady in a losing effort in New England. His play over the past two weeks, against the Titans and Chiefs, has made him the early favorite for offensive rookie of the year. And with defensive stars J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus out for the season, Watson will have to be even more productive.
