Vikings to honor Tony Sparano before Saturday’s game On Saturday http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/laquon-treadwell-jersey , prior to their preseason contest at U.S. Bank Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Minnesota Vikings will pay tribute to their former offensive line coach, Tony Sparano.According to Courtney Cronin of ESPN, Sparano’s wife Jeanette, his daughter Ryan, and his son Tony, Jr. Womens Eric Kendricks Jersey , will serve as honorary captains for Saturday’s game. Tony Sparano, Jr., is the current assistant offensive line coach for the Jaguars.The family will be presented with a painting of Sparano, and a tribute video will be shown prior to the game, followed by a moment of silence.Former Vikings’ offensive lineman Joe Berger will also be given the honor of sounding the Gjallarhorn prior to kickoff of Saturday’s game. Berger played under Sparano on three different teams: the Dallas Cowboys from 2006 to 2008, the Miami Dolphins in 2010 and 2011, and the Vikings in 2016 and 2017.The Vikings are also wearing a decal on their helmets this season to honor Sparano’s memory.Sparano passed away just days before the start of Training Camp as a result of suffering cardiac arrest. The team delayed the official start of camp for a day so that the organization could attend his memorial service.Kickoff between the Jaguars and the Vikings is at noon Central time on Saturday at U.S. Bank Stadium. If you want to see the tribute to Coach Sparano Customized Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , make sure you get there well ahead of time.Report: Minnesota Vikings waive K Daniel Carlson, will sign Dan Bailey After yesterday’s 29-29 tie with Green Bay, there was a lot of speculation on the fate of first year kicker Daniel Carlson, who was drafted in the first round and beat out Kai Forbath during the preseason. The speculation is over, apparently:Carlson, who was a little unsteady in preseason, missed three field goals yesterday www.authenticsminnesotavikings.com , including two in overtime. The last one was with just seconds remaining, and it was a 35 yard attempt that would have won the game for Minnesota, and capped an incredible comeback.To replace him, it looks like they’re going to sign former Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey:Bailey, who kicked for the Cowboys for seven years, has made 88% of his field goals for his career, and 99% of his extra points. He had his worst season last year Minnesota Vikings T-Shirt , making only 75% of his attempts, and went 26/28 on extra points as he battled a back injury and played in only 12 games.So, welcome to Minnesota, Dan Bailey. May the kicks be ever in your favor.

The Minnesota Sports Awards have named Vikings Head Mike Zimmer Coach of the Year for his work last season http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/kyle-rudolph-jersey , reports Lindsey Young from Vikings.com.After what many thought would be season ending loses with Sam Bradford and Dalvin Cook going down early in the season, Zimmer was able to turn things around and go 13-3 and make a run to the NFC Championship game.Vikings’ General Manager Rick Spielman was asked to speak about Zimmer and had nothing but praise for him and his work with the team.Coach Zimmer could not be on hand to accept his award. He and the team are getting ready to play the New Orleans Saints this Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium, but he did have a prerecorded message for those on hand.“Thank you for the honor of being selected as Minnesota Sports Awards Coach of the Year. I’m sorry I can’t be in attendance tonight; we have preparations for a huge New Orleans Saints game this week. I would also like to congratulate the other nominees. I have great respect for Coach Anderson and Coach Richter, and I’m proud of the work that they both do for the student-athletes in the state of Minnesota. We have great Vikings fans all around the state, and we need you to cheer for us again this weekend. Thank you.” Coming into their Week 9 contest, the Minnesota Vikings had never beaten the Detroit Lions at U.S. Bank Stadium, suffering an overtime loss in 2016 and a regulation loss in 2017. On Sunday afternoon, the Vikings’ defense did everything they could to ensure that it wouldn’t get to three in a row.Paced by a defense that set a new franchise record by sacking Matthew Stafford ten times and found the end zone themselves once, the Vikings overcame a lackluster offensive performance to take down their division rivals by a final score of 24-9.The Vikings wasted no time getting on the scoreboard http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/everson-griffen-jersey , marching down the field on their first drive of the game and getting into the end zone on a 1-yard touchdown run by Latavius Murray to take a 7-0 lead.That was all the scoring in the first quarter, and a pair of Matt Prater field goals in the second quarter made the score 7-6. Then, Dalvin Cook announced his return from injury in a big way with a huge 70-yard run.That set up the Vikings’ second touchdown, as Kirk Cousins found Adam Thielen for a two-yard score.Minnesota added a Dan Bailey field goal just before halftime, and the home team went into the locker room with a 17-6 lead.There was no scoring in the third quarter, and the Vikings appeared to be looking to add more in the fourth quarter when Kirk Cousins attempted to pitch the ball to Cook, only to have Cook put it on the ground for a Lions recovery. Once again, however, the Vikings’ defense stood tall Womens Rashod Hill Jersey , and provided the dagger to Detroit’s hopes.Matthew Stafford was scrambling to his right, and attempted to pitch the ball to an unsuspecting Kerryon Johnson. The ball fell to the turf, and because it was pitched backwards, it was a live ball. Danielle Hunter alertly jumped on the ball, and rumbled 32 yards for a defensive touchdown for the Vikings, with Bailey’s extra point making it 24-6.The Lions did get a field goal from Prater with just over a minute to go, and that’s how it ended at U.S. Bank Stadium.The real story of this game was the Minnesota defense, as they made life miserable for the Lions’ offense all game. They sacked Stafford ten times, led by 3.5 for Hunter and 2.5 for Tom Johnson. Everson Griffen collected 1.5 sacks http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/harrison-smith-jersey , and Mackensie Alexander and Stephen Weatherly each picked up one. Sheldon Richardson was credited with half a sack to round out the total. The Lions could get nothing going on offense all afternoon, as the Minnesota defense just didn’t allow them any room to breathe.The one down stat from this one is that Adam Thielen failed to break his tie with Calvin Johnson for the most consecutive 100-yard receiving performances in NFL history. He had eight coming into this one, but the Lions held him in check, giving him just four receptions for 22 yards. He did, however, record a touchdown reception for the sixth consecutive game, so that’s a decent consolation prize, I suppose.Kirk Cousins had a very up-and-down game in this one. He had, by far http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/sheldon-richardson-jersey , his lowest statistical output as a Viking, completing 18-of-22 passes for just 164 yards, one touchdown, and one pretty inexplicable interception in the first half. Still, it was good enough in this one.On the receiving side, Laquon Treadwell actually led the Vikings with 37 yards on a pair of receptions. Kyle Rudolph had a pair of receptions for 28 yards, and Chad Beebe, making his NFL debut with Stefon Diggs on the sideline, caught three passes for 21 yards. Dalvin Cook had four receptions for 20 yards in his return Authentic Ben Gedeon Jersey , and Aldrick Robinson chipped in with a pair of catches for 20 yards. Latavius Murray also had one 16-yard reception.Dalvin Cook had a nice return in his first game since Week 4. He had the big 70-yard run, and finished with 89 yards on ten carries. Latavius Murray had 31 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, and Adam Thielen had a five-yard run.The Vikings move their record to 5-3-1, and will take their bye this coming week before returning to face the Chicago Bears in Week 11 at Soldier Field. The Lions fall to 3-5, and they will host those same Bears next week.The Minnesota Vikings get a huge divisional win in Week 9, taking down the Detroit Lions by a final score of 24-9 at U.S. Bank Stadium. Thanks to everyone that got their coverage of today’s game right here at The Daily Norseman!

Examining the roster ties between Patriots Limited Kevin Faulk Jersey , Dolphins ahead of Week 4 The Miami Dolphins are heading to Foxborough, and they’re packing some familiar faces along with them.Miami, standing atop the AFC East through three weeks of September, checks in with four former New England Patriots in the 53-man fold entering Sunday. And two of whom were 1,400 miles away as recently this spring and summer.But there are also a few ex-Dolphins to account for between the active roster, practice squad and injured reserve of New England.Here’s a glance through the roster connections leading up to the 1 p.m. ET divisional kickoff at Gillette Stadium.MIAMIBrandon Bolden, running back – Undrafted out of Ole Miss in 2012, Bolden would go on to accrue 686 snaps on offense and 1,400 snaps on special teams over the course of his Patriots tenure. A “four-down player,” as Patriots head coach often described him, Bolden appeared in 83 games through his six regular seasons with New England. He tacked on 15 playoff games and a pair of Super Bowl rings Antonio Garcia Jersey , as well. But the longest-tenured Patriots running back was released during September’s cutdown for the second consecutive year. And this time, Bolden elected to go south, signing a one-year, $790,000 contract with the Dolphins. The 28-year-old has been in for 70 percent of the snaps in Miami’s kicking game thus far into 2018.Danny Amendola, wide receiver – By way of the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and St. Louis Rams, Amendola signed a five-year pact with the Patriots in March 2013. A trio of restructures would arrive by 2017, but so would 57 career playoff receptions for 709 yards and six touchdowns, in addition to 106 yards on punt returns and another 213 on kick returns. “To me, he’s uncoverable Dont'a Hightower Jersey ,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said last fall. “You turn on the tape, he’s getting away from people no matter what the route, no matter who’s on him, no matter what’s called, leverage, distance – he’s just been so great for us ...” Amendola joined the Dolphins on a two-year, $12 million contract as free agency opened. He’s caught 11 of the 13 passes sent his direction for 100 yards to this point.AJ Derby, tight end – The converted QB via Iowa, Coffeyville Community College and Arkansas was selected by New England in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. Derby spent his rookie season with the Patriots on injured reserve, but entered into four games in his second season before being traded to the Denver Broncos in exchange for pick No. 163 overall in the 2017 draft. That pick would eventually be redistributed for restricted free-agent running back Mike Gillislee. As for Derby, he would eventually be claimed off waivers by Miami. The tight end has caught two passes over the past two weeks for 35 yards and his third career touchdown.Ted Larsen Authentic Joe Thuney Jersey Salute to Service , guard – A Patriots sixth-round pick out of North Carolina State in 2010, Larsen was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of his inaugural NFL preseason. He has made additional stops with the Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears and penned a three-year deal with the Dolphins in March 2017. Larsen has started 10 of his 11 appearances for Miami since then. The center-slash-guard has started 75 career games.NEW ENGLANDChris Hogan, wide receiver – The nickname “7-Eleven” has been retired, but it had to start somewhere. And, as chronicled on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” six summers ago, that somewhere was Miami. Hogan signed with the Dolphins’ practice squad late in 2011 season, and after a four-catch preseason, returned for the initial week of the 2012 campaign. He’d move on to the Buffalo Bills and was signed by the Patriots as a restricted free agent in 2016. Hogan has caught 79 passes for 1,203 yards and 11 touchdowns in regular-season action for New England. The wideout has logged two 100-yard games through the Patriots’ last two playoff runs.Eric Smith, offensive tackle – Smith Limited Brandon Bolden Jersey , who signed to the Patriots’ practice squad after Labor Day weekend, originally entered the league as a Dolphins undrafted free agent in 2017. The Virginia product began his rookie year on Miami’s 53-man roster and returned to it after a stint on injured reserve, but did not make his regular-season debut. The Dolphins waived Smith ahead of the Sept. 1 cutdown deadline.Ulrick John, offensive tackle – Residing on New England’s injured reserve after suffering a foot injury that required surgery in the preseason finale, John spent parts of two years with Miami. The 2014 Indianapolis Colts seventh-rounder was claimed by the Dolphins on Halloween 2015 and appeared in two contests. John began 2016 on the team’s practice squad before joining the Cardinals and later the Green Bay Packers. The Patriots signed the 26-year-old tackle this April. The New England Patriots are officially out of the 10-point hole they found themselves in early in the second quarter. After a Cordarrelle Patterson touchdown on a kickoff return cut the team’s deficit to three points, New England’s next offensive possession ended with a touchdown as well – one that would not have been possible without a big fourth down conversion from Tom Brady to wide receiver Josh Gordon:Displaying great hands, athleticism and concentration to hold onto the football, Gordon was able to come down with the football to keep the drive alive. A few plays later – one of which a direct snap to running back James White that did not bring any success – New England was in the end zone once again.This time, it was a pass from Brady to White:White’s fifth touchdown of the season allowed the Patriots to get back on top again 21-17.

Jalen Ramsey has approached trash talking — both dishing it out and receiving it — with open arms for most of his football career.When initiating it he's been an equal opportunity offender Authentic Dwayne Allen Jersey , even when his words were aimed at possibly two of the best players to ever play their respective positions.Ramsey sent ripples across the league last month when he was asked by "ESPN The Magazine" for his opinion of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and said: "I don't think Gronk is as great as people think he is."The comments came months after the Jaguars' 24-20 loss to the Patriots in last season's AFC championship game, in which Gronkowski caught only one pass before being knocked out of the game with a concussion in the first half.That same game also saw Ramsey briefly exchange words with reigning MVP Tom Brady during pregame warmups.It's all added extra fuel to the budding rivalry as New England prepares to visit Jacksonville on Sunday."If that's how he feels, that's how he feels," Gronkowski said Wednesday. "It's a big game. ... I'm sure I'm gonna have opportunities go against him. And I'm sure he's gonna have opportunities to go against me."For his part, Ramsey has never backed down from his comments."I don't live my life with regrets, man. Things happen. I said what I said," Ramsey said after his comments went viral."I love the competitiveness. I love the trash talking. I love the challenge. I love literally everything about the game, so I have no regrets. ... Hey, I'm me: Unapologetic."Ramsey's teammates said his often-biting words are what make Ramsey the player he is.Trash talking is Limited Malcolm Mitchell Jersey , "part of his game," defensive lineman Calais Campbell said."I tell him all the time 'Man, hey, whatever you do just make sure that we're gonna back you up...We're gonna be there for you,'" Campbell said. "But I have nothing but confidence in Jalen. He's a very smart guy ... Very passionate. So I won't ever try to contain somebody and not let him be himself."Ramsey was a first-team All-Pro in his second year in the league last season, but had a relatively quiet AFC title game against New England. He finished with just two tackles as Brady engineered late-game heroics to erase a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit.Ramsey said recently that he thinks the biggest reason for the Jaguars losing that game was that they became too conservative.Of the talent of Brady, who exploited that conservatism, Ramsey told "GQ" magazine that he puts him in the category of quarterbacks who don't "suck.""I never want to suck," Brady said with a smile Wednesday. "So I never want to be in that category."Brady is expecting "an emotional environment" on Sunday against a defense that he considers one of the best in the AFC. He added that he thinks Ramsey is "a great young player." Brady said a little trash talk is part of the game."I think it raises everybody's game Devin McCourty Jersey , as long as it doesn't get to point where you do something stupid," Brady said. "I think emotion in football is critical."Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone said that any conversations he's had with Ramsey about his tendency to speak his mind would remain private.But Marrone was also quick to offer praise for both Gronkowski and Brady, whom he said were possibly the best to play the game at their positions.He said he isn't concerned about Ramsey's comments providing the Patriots bulletin board material."I mean, it is what it is," Marrone said. "We're all men and we've got to stand by what we say and you've got to speak for yourself and be able to do that. We've just got to go out there and play."Said Gronkowski: "I feel like this game you gotta keep your head on a swivel and be ready for anything."Notes: Rookie RB Sony Michel spoke to reporters for the first time since injuring his knee during training camp. He was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and said he was "doing all I can do" to be back in uniform for Sunday's game. "My mindset is to prepare as if I'm playing," he said. Michel, who was taken 31st overall in April's draft, is one of two Patriot first-round picks on the mend. Tackle Isaiah Wynn (selected 23rd overall) was lost for the season after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in the preseason. RB Rex Burkhead remains in the concussion protocol after taking a blow to the head in last week's opener.Week 1 Patriots vs Texans: First-round rookie running back Sony Michel not expected to play The New England Patriots have one of the deepest offensive backfields in the NFL – and it looks as if its depth will be tested today when the team opens its 2018 regular season against the Houston Texans. According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, first-round rookie running back Sony Michel is expected to miss the contest which would have been his NFL debut:As Schefer notes Authentic Julian Edelman Jersey Salute to Service , Michel was listed as questionable on Friday’s final injury reported after being a limited practice participant all week long. The Georgia product, who was drafted by the Patriots with the 31st overall selection earlier this year, is dealing with a knee injury that cost him more than three weeks worth of practice time in training camp: Michel originally injured his knee on August 1 and did not return until August 27.The rookie missed all four of New England’s preseason contests and will now have to wait at least one more week for his first game action at the pro level. During his absence, Rex Burkhead and fellow offseason addition Jeremy Hill are projected to serve as the Patriots’ lead backs on early downs. James White, meanwhile, will again be the team’s primary receiving back.

Oakland and the Los Angeles Chargers both come into Sunday's game ranked in the Top 10 in total offense. The matchup between AFC West rivals is likely to come down to who has the greatest success running the ball.Both teams had a 100-yard rusher in their wins last week. The Raiders' Marshawn Lynch had 130 yards in a 45-42 overtime victory over Cleveland Cheap Melvin Gordon Jersey , while the Chargers' Melvin Gordon gained 104 yards on the ground in a 29-27 win over San Francisco .Lynch and Gordon are both ranked in the Top 10 in rushing. Lynch is fourth with 300 yards and has shown flashes of being back to the level he displayed in Seattle from 2011-14, when he had four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Gordon is seventh with 276 yards.Both players are showing they are physical runners in different ways. Lynch has generated 77.3 percent of his yards after contact according to SportRadar, the highest percentage among the top 24 backs. Gordon is tied for third in broken tackles with 12."There's not a lot of backs that can say they run the football like he does. He still has elusiveness and speed," Raiders coach Jon Gruden said about Lynch. "This guy likes the physical grind and I think he feeds off of it."Gordon is also making an impact in the passing game as he is tied for the Chargers' lead in receptions with 17. That has allowed him to lead the AFC in yards from scrimmage with 475."He's really done a great job as a receiver and really been a factor to make huge plays for us," Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said. "I think he has been driven to get his game to another level, and I think we're seeing the benefit to that. He's worked hard. He's studied it."Both teams are looking for a win to avoid falling to 0-2 in division games. Quarterback Philip Rivers said the Chargers need to start stringing together wins to avoid falling further behind unbeaten Kansas City."I think we're just playing a little better all the way around. A little more complementary all the way around," Rivers said. "But certainly, you know, this is no time to keep going win-loss, win-loss, win-loss. So it's an opportunity for us to get our second win in a row and get above .500 and keep going."Here are some other things to watch as the Chargers look for their third straight victory over the Raiders:CARR VS. RIVERSOakland's Derek Carr and Rivers have split their first eight meetings. Both are coming into the game with momentum.Carr is looking for his third straight 300-yard game, which would be the first time that has happened in his five-year career. Rivers has thrown 11 touchdowns Cheap Philip Rivers Jersey , tying for the most he has thrown in the first four games.PASS RUSH HELPThe Chargers are hoping defensive tackle Corey Liuget's return from a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance enhancers helps improve a pass rush that has struggled.Los Angeles has only eight sacks as Melvin Ingram has been frequently been double-teamed. Defensive end Joey Bosa will miss his fifth straight game due to a foot injury.ROOKIE TACKLESThe Raiders will have an untested tackle this week after right tackle Donald Penn was placed on IR with a groin injury. Rookie Brandon Parker will step in and team with fellow rookie Kolton Miller, who is on the left side protecting Carr. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this will be the first time since the 1970 merger that the Raiders will have two rookie tackles starting in a game.DEFENSIVE HELPThe Raiders hope the anticipated debut of cornerback Daryl Worley will help eliminate the big plays that have plagued the defense. Oakland has allowed a league-worst five 50-yard or longer plays and is tied for second worst with 23 plays allowed of at least 20 yards. Worley should provide a needed boost in the secondary as he returns from a four-game suspension for violating the league's policies on substance abuse and personal conduct.WHOSE HOME GAME?The Raiders left Los Angeles in 1994, but they still have a large and boisterous contingent of fans in the area. When the Raiders played a preseason game against the Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Aug. 21, it sounded like a Raiders home game. Even though the StubHub Center seats only 27,000, it is likely the crowd will be predominantly silver and black.The Chargers have won five of their past six at StubHub, but it hasn't felt like a home-field advantage. Last Sunday's game against the 49ers appeared to have more San Francisco fans.AP Pro Football Writer Josh Dubow contributed to this story.Follow Joe Reedy at joereedy Arizona Cardinals coach Steve Wilks had a blunt answer when asked if offensive coordinator Mike McCoy's job is in jeopardy."I would say all our jobs are in jeopardy," Wilks said, "including mine if we don't win."Such is the mood of the first-year coach and his staff after the team's 27-17 loss at Minnesota dropped the Cardinals to 1-5 for the season.Now Arizona faces a quick turnaround to host the Denver Broncos, another struggling team at 2-4, on Thursday night.As has been the case all season, the problems for the Cardinals on Sunday were a sluggish offense and a defense unable to stop the run.Arizona managed 269 yards against the Vikings and remains last in the NFL in offense at 220.5 yards per game.The Cardinals offense came to life a bit in the fourth quarter as rookie quarterback Josh Rosen operated in an up-tempo game."It was very effective for us Cheap Keenan Allen Jersey ," Wilks said. "It's something that we've definitely got to consider. It's part of his comfort zone based off of college. We've got to do everything we can right now to get this offense going in the right direction."Rosen said the late-game success had something to do with Minnesota's defense."It's not necessarily that I like it or don't like it, it was just successful the little bit we did it," Rosen said. "I think the Vikings had a comfortable lead as well so they kind of took their foot off the gas a little bit and kind of let us get some underneath stuff. I think it's definitely something we can do or continue, but also you can't look too far into it, consider the situation in the game."Rosen had the best statistical game of his three starts, completing 21 of 31 passes for 208 yards with one interception. He acknowledged that he bears a big responsibility for the offense but as a rookie must realize his status with the coaching staff."You've got to earn respect. I think I'm in the process of doing that," Rosen said, "but I think we've got some great coaches and they're asking for feedback and I'm willing to give them that feedback but you've also kind of know your place as a rookie. I'm sort of finding the happy medium between taking as much control as you sort of deserve, but I'll never shy away."Another familiar problem was getting David Johnson involved. The running back has yet to have a breakout game and has acknowledged several mental lapses as he tries to grasp the new offense.Wilks said the problems in getting Johnson involved are many."We need to do a much better job up front as far as blocking, executing our assignments," he said. "We need to move him around more, try to find ways to get him out in space, different things to try to open it up."The Cardinals' problems up front have been worsened by injury. Right guard Justin Pugh has a hand injury and Mike Iupati left Sunday's game with an injured back.Wilks said he's awaiting results of an MRI on Pugh's hand."It could be broke Drew Kaser Jersey , it could be sprained," Wilks said. "We don't know."With his left hand in a cast, Pugh said later Monday that, while he couldn't talk about specifics of the injury, he intended to try to play Thursday night.Wilks, a defensive coach by background, said he's "definitely taken more attention to the offense and making sure we're doing the things we need to execute."But there are issues on defense as well. Arizona allowed 195 yards rushing against the Vikings."It's one or two guys not using their hands, getting out of their gaps, which is creating explosive plays," Wilks said. "Guys need to continue to work and execute their assignments."That's been a season-long lament in Arizona. Custom San Francisco 49ers Jerseys

Rules analysis: How was that not a safety? In the middle of the 3rd quarter of the game yesterday http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-isaac-rochell-jersey , there was a play that was/is confusing to many football fans. If you’re a Chargers fan, you’re probably wondering why the team was not awarded a safety. Bills fans probably wonder why Nwosu wasn’t ejected for his devastating and injuring hit on Taiwan Jones. I’m not going to touch the latter question as it is likely going to be split down party lines whether you think it was a dangerous play, or an inadvertent football play. I can, however, try to answer the former.Here is the play in question:Breaking the play down into bullets:Marcus Murphy catches the punt but the ball is immediately separated by a hit from Michael Davis.The momentum from the hit drives the ball into the endzone where it is recovered by Taiwan Jones.Jones evades tackles by Kyle Emanuel, Adrian Phillips and Jatavis Brown, but Phillips does pull his helmet off in the process. Jones is then hit in the head and tackled by Uchenna Nwosu, losing the ball in the process.The first whistle sounds as Jones hits the ground clutching his head.A Chargers player picks up the football after the whistle.Here are some things that did not happen, which have bearing on the play:Murphy did not make a football move or establish himself as a runner.The back judge does not throw his bean bag to signal a loss of possession, confirming the previous bullet. Jones attempts to, but does not succeed at advancing the ball out of his endzone.PossessionI believe most of the confusion on this play comes from how Taiwan Jones reacts when he recovers the ball. He is very clearly trying to take the ball out of the endzone. His efforts http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-austin-ekeler-jersey , along with being tackled in the endzone, naturally, would make you think he is trying to escape some consequence for being tackled in the endzone (i.e. a safety or touchdown). Whether he understood the situation or not, this is not the case.The confusion starts with Murphy. He is not ruled by the back judge to have had possession of the ball. So when he loses the ball, the punt has been muffed, not fumbled. This is important because it has bearing on the recovery. From the NFL Rulebook, Rule 9, Section 4, Article 1:Starting with (c), this would have been a touchdown if the Chargers had gotten the ball, but they didn’t. Part (b) better describes the situation Joe Barksdale Jersey , but doesn’t answer the question other than to state it would have been legal for Jones to advance the ball in that situation.SafetiesMost Chargers fans (myself included) were screaming at the TV that it should have been a Safety. A Bills player was tackled in his own end zone; that has to be a safety, right?From the NFL Rulebook, Rule 11, Section 5, Article 1:Part (b) and Note (2) are the important bits here. Impetus is a very physics-sounding word for the motion of the ball when not in the possession of a player. The assumption is that the offense is the one providing the impetus. Kaser provides the initial impetus when he kicks the ball downfield. Later, Davis provides further impetus by knocking the ball away from Murphy. This is the impetus that moves the ball into the endzone.Part (b) is very clear that the impetus needs to have come from the Bills for this to qualify as a safety. I do not think that anyone can say that the Bills caused the ball to end up in the end zone. Imagine a very similar situation we see from time to time: A punt returner muffs (does not catch) a punt, the ball rolls into the end zone, where they recover the ball. This is a touchback, not a safety. The play with Jones is not that much different, just more complicated.TouchbacksFrom the NFL Rulebook, Rule 11 Cheap Dan Feeney Jersey , Section 6, Articles 1-2:Section 6 complements 5, as it defines what is a touchback, rather than what is not a safety.Jones being tackled in his own endzone with a ball whose impetus originated with the Chargers is completely in-line with Article 2(a).Penalties on PuntsYou all will recall that a play is dead as soon as a player’s helmet comes off. Even if the refs miss the whistle.From the NFL Rulebook, Rule 7, Section 2, Article 1:NFL Rulebook Rule 12, Section 2, Articles 6-7 have a lot of situations covering defenseless players and unnecessary roughness. While striking a player without a helmet is not mentioned, striking someone in the head without a helmet has to be worse than a helmet to helmet hit (which is covered) as a personal foul.From the NFL Rulebook, Rule 9 Trevor Williams Jersey , Section 5, Article 1: The above rules state that a foul on a scrimmage kick (read: punt), when the dead-ball spot results in a touchback, can be assessed at the 20-yard line or force a re-kick after the penalty assessment.ConclusionMuch the to the chagrin of Chargers’ fans, the refs got this call right. There was no fumble, but rather a muffed punt recovered by the receiving team in its’ own endzone.The impetus for the ball entering the endzone came from the kicking team, so the receiving team does not commit a safety.The play would have ended on the tackle of Jones, but instead ended on the dead ball call for a player losing their helmet.The Bills maintained possession of the ball, with the dead ball spot occurring in their own endzone: a touchback.Striking a defenseless player warrants a 15-yard penalty from the spot of the foul.The Bills opted to have the penalty assessed at the touchback spot: the 20-yard line.Bills ball at their 35 yard line.Update:It appears that Taiwan Jones escaped without a concussion, though a rather nasty gash.It also appears that Nwosu reached out to Jones: With the preseason winding down, Los Angeles Chargers rookie safety Derwin James is getting closer and closer to earning a starting job.According to Greg Beacham of the Associated Press Cheap Derwin James Jersey , Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said Monday that James could indeed get the starting nod next to Jahleel Addae for L.A.’s opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.“You can see his confidence growing in the system,” Bradley said. “If he makes a mistake, now he knows. He’ll come over and go, ‘That was on me.’ I couldn’t say that a couple of weeks ago.”Though it’s regularly the case that Top 20 picks in the NFL Draft become instantaneous starters for their newest professional football teams, it’s never a given.Quarterbacks routinely don’t start right away. Players such as Vernon Gholston and Dion Jordan never started as rookies (or hardly at all) for the teams that drafted them in the Top 10.The Chargers have given James every chance to quickly up to speed. He’s played more snaps than any other defender on the team’s roster through three preseason games. James started the Chargers’ third preseason game against New Orleans after Desmond King and Jaylen Watkins started the first two weeks.For James to be nearing the starting lineup as a rookie for a team that ranked third in total defense last season is a strong indication of his growth so far.“I feel like the more reps I get, the more knowledge will come,” James said. “Gus does a great job of saying, ‘When you’re uncomfortable, that’s when you get the most growth.’ Right now I’m kind of uncomfortable, and I feel like I’m getting better each day.” www.nflshopoutlet.com/baltimore-ravens

By all accounts, the team has had a successful offseason, upgrading many perceived positions of need with draft picks and free agent signings. One area that most expected the Saints to address highly in the draft was passed on by the team, however. New Orleans tight ends were responsible for only around 11% of the team's receptions and yardage output in 2017 Cheap Vonn Bell Jersey , combining for 476 yards on 45 receptions and 4 touchdowns. In today's training camp preview, we take a look at perhaps the most glaring weakness on an otherwise talented roster over the last two seasons. TIGHT END Key Losses: Coby Fleener (released)Key Additions: Benjamin Watson (free agent, Ravens)Photo by Sean Gardner/Getty ImagesThe Saints parted ways with Fleener this offseason, a high priced free agent acquisition in 2016 from the Indianapolis Colts. Fleener, released in part due to ongoing concussion issues, had 72 receptions for 926 yards and five touchdowns in 26 games as a Saint. His first season in New Orleans was average (50-631, 3), but he was unable to provide a consistent threat in the middle or down the field as the Saints had hoped when signing him. New Orleans did bring back an old friend, re-signing Ben Watson away from the Baltimore Ravens. Watson, a 37-yr old veteran entering his 15th season, led the Ravens in receptions (61) and receiving touchdowns (4) a year ago while finishing second on the team in receiving yards. Watson had previously played for New Orleans from 2013-15, and his 74 receptions for the Saints in 2015 ranked second on the team, while his 824 yards receiving that year ranked third. It was the highest receiving output by a Saints tight end other than Jimmy Graham since Henry Childs in 1979, and the 6th best production in team history at the position. Watson is more than a receiving threat and trusted target of quarterback Drew Brees. He is also one of the league's better blockers at tight end, and an outstanding locker room leader. Photo by Greg Shamus /Getty ImagesJosh Hill has not progressed as a receiver like the team had hoped when they traded Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks in 2015. Over the last four years Cheap Austin Carr Jersey , Hill has had 14, 16, 15, and 16 receptions for an average of 142 yards per year. He does show some downfield potential as a receiver, and a penchant for getting open around the goal line, but has never been able to do it consistently. Hill is a very good blocker, often starting games over Fleener due to Fleener's liability as a blocker. Hill's value to the Saints offense lies far more with his blocking ability than that as a receiver, but he could strengthen his roster position by becoming a more reliable target in the passing game. Steve Roberts-USA TODAY SportsOne roster spot that could be in jeopardy is that of Michael Hoomanawanui. Used almost exclusively as an extra blocker, the 30-yr. old Hoomanawanui has caught 17 passes for 128 yards and 4 touchdowns for the Saints since being acquired in a 2015 trade with the New England Patriots. He offers little downfield range as a receiver, but is certainly a valuable asset in the running game, particularly short yardage. Garrett Griffin enters his third training camp with New Orleans, after spending most of the last two years on the practice squad. He has one career catch, and looks to be a longshot for a roster spot. Deon Yelder attracted alot of attention at the team's OTA's and mini-camp practices last month, and could push Hoomanawanui and Hill for roster spots. An undrafted rookie from Western Kentucky, he didn't have a reception until his senior season Cheap Sheldon Rankins Jersey , when he caught the attention of scouts with 52 catches for 688 yards and 7 touchdowns. Yelder shows good ability as a blocker, has good straight line speed, and is a load to bring down in the open field. He doesn't have great change of direction fluidity, and is very inexperienced as a route runner. Yelder looks like a potentially exciting player to watch at camp, but a developmental prospect for sure, who could benefit greatly from the leadership and tutelage of a veteran like Watson. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThe Saints offense no longer relies on heavy production from the tight end, as was the case when Graham starred for the team. New Orleans boasts the league's best tandem of running backs in Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram, one of the NFL's best receivers in Michael Thomas, a powerful offensive line, and a Hall of Fame quarterback still playing near the top of his game with Drew Brees. Despite all that, the Saints offense ranked just 19th in 3rd down efficiency in 2017, unacceptable and unheard of for a Sean Payton offense. Benjamin Watson's reunion with New Orleans could be an underrated offseason move. The team is hoping that Watson can continue to be a two way threat, giving even more versatility to it's base and short yardage personnel. The additions Cameron Meredith and rookie Tre'quan Smith at wide receiver should also help change the Saints' third down struggles, but the team must get better production from it's tight ends in 2018.
