Eric Davis Jersey lands new ESPN radio show, will still appear on FS1

Eric Davis is expanding his radio role with ESPNLA 710AM.

Kids Tyvon Branch Jersey The ex-49ers cornerback is joining Marcellus Wiley and Kelvin Washington for the new Afternoons with Marcellus, Kelvin and Eric weekday afternoon radio show (3-7 p.m. PT).

The Browns passed on Carson Wentz in the 2016 NFL Draft and then declined to select Deshaun Watson, trading out of the spots where each quarterback landed. Wentz burned the Browns in the 2016 opener, and now the Browns get to see Watson up close on Sunday. He is a Rookie of the Year candidate for the Texans, and the Browns are going with Kevin Hogan, their 28th starting quarterback since 1999.

Kids Davonte Lambert Jersey Quarterback Drew Brees has eight touchdown passes and no interceptions, and the Saints have just one fumble, which they recovered. They’ll try to remain turnover-free Sunday against a Lions defense that has forced 11 鈥?seven interceptions and four fumble recoveries.

The Chiefs (5-0) are the only undefeated team remaining but have had issues with the Steelers. After throwing five interceptions against the Jaguars, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will try to prove he still has it against an injury-depleted Chiefs defense.

With his three touchdowns in Charlotte, Wentz now has 13 touchdown passes on the season with just three interceptions. It’s a huge improvement from last season when Wentz finished his rookie campaign with just 16 touchdowns and 14 picks. If Wentz continues to play well and the Eagles defense can create turnovers,as they did against the Panthers, the Eagles could be looking at a bye in the first round of the NFC playoffs.

The Colts’ biggest injury storyline will remain Andrew Luck Jersey until the quarterback makes his 2017 debut following right shoulder surgery in January.

So much for that Julius Thomas/Adam Gase connection. The Dolphins’ offense has been an absolute disaster this season, and Thomas’ box score is reflective of the debacle. Through four games, Thomas has caught 9 of 16 targets for 86 yards and no touchdowns. He has not been a full-time player, working 73 percent of the snaps, including 55 percent of the pass plays. Thomas has been asked to stay in and block on 23 pass plays this season, which is fifth most in the NFL. He has managed only one end zone target, and his 0.9 OTD suggests a big boost in scoring is not in his future. Thomas should be on waivers.

Luck practiced for the first time last week. The goal is for his workload — number of passes and type of passes — to increase in practice this week. He has already been ruled out of Indy’s Week 6 game at Tennessee, and the Colts will not put a timetable on when he’ll play in a game. — Mike Wells

17.5 percent chance. The Bengals head into their bye coming off back-to-back wins. Their chances of making the playoffs still aren’t great, but considering that they dropped to 2.2 percent following their 0-3 start, 17.5 percent doesn’t look too bad.

36.4 percent chance. The Saints’ chances of making the playoffs dipped to 5.1 percent after an 0-2 start, but two straight wins in which the defense allowed a combined 13 points has those chances back up to 36.4 percent. If the defense can continue to limit opponents, their chances of making the playoffs could improve.

Keanu Neal Kids Jersey Is there anything particularly inspiring about Kearse’s production profile in New York? Not really, but as injuries and bye weeks build, it’s reasonable to pursue steady opportunity rates over talent and upside. One of just 40 NFL players with at least 20 percent of his team’s total targets, Kearse has at least four catches in four games this season.

Charles Clay Jersey carted off, ruled out with knee injury

Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay, the team’s leading receiver, was carted to the locker room after suffering a knee injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s 20-16 loss to the Bengals.

Authentic Kids Sidney Jones Jersey After Harrison played zero snaps in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, coach Mike Tomlin indicated younger players are ascending.

We appreciate James. We know what James is capable of. James will ready himself, said Tomlin about Harrison last month.

In other Steelers roster moves, wide receiver Eli Rogers is inactive for the second straight week. The Steelers are opting for veteran receiver Justin Hunter over him.

Right tackle Marcus Gilbert (hamstring) will miss the second straight game.
Mens Russell Okung Jersey
Quarterback Josh Hobbs, offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins, nose tackle Dan McCullers and cornerback Brian Allen round out the inactive list.

Jerick McKinnon, Minnesota Vikings, ankle, Monday: When Dalvin Cook’s torn ACL forced a premature end to his season, it was expected that McKinnon and teammate Latavius Murray would have to step up. McKinnon suffered an injury of his own (ankle) late in the game last week, but it looks to have been relatively minor, given that he was a full participant in practice throughout the week. His removal from the injury report in advance of Monday night’s game confirms that he, along with Murray, will be ready to play.

Ameer Abdullah, Detroit Lions, ankle, 1:00 p.m. ET: Abdullah rolled his ankle in Week 4 and did not return to the game. After the game, Abdullah said he believed he could have gone back in, but game circumstances dictated differently. He was back in practice on Wednesday for limited work, then upgraded to full practices for both Thursday and Friday. His removal from the pregame injury report does not come as a surprise, and he will be ready to play Sunday.

The Jets have a defense better than expected.

Matt Ryan is in a bit of a funk with the new offense and should welcome a chance for a passing tune-up with both Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu hurting. Coach Dan Quinn has to be pleased more with his young defenders, however.

It was nice to win a road game without the fourth-quarter heroics of Matthew Stafford and on the strength of stingy defense and much-improved power running from Ameer Abdullah. The Lions are becoming a very complete and dangerous team.

Cam Newton got well all of a sudden against a putrid Patriots defense, which didn’t do anything to make him uncomfortable. Now it’s up to the defense to pick up the pieces post-Drew Brees and Tom Brady.

Sure, Jared Goff has been good, but Todd Gurley has been downright spectacular as a runner and a receiver. They’ll need to keep playing and scoring like that, because they give up a ton of big pass plays and chunk runs to opponents, too.

The Browns have an offense worse than expected. Josh McCown gets a little revenge here while DeShone Kizer struggles with limited help against a team that’s stopping the pass well.

Frank Gore takes advantage of good timing against his former team to push up to No. 7 on the all-time rushing list ahead of Eric Dickerson. His replacement in San Francisco, Carlos Hyde, will keep the visitors in it, but it’s easier to trust Jacoby Brissett and Adam Vinatieri at home vs. Brian Hoyer and Robbie Gould on the road.

Hue Jackson Jersey on his 1-19 mark as Browns coach: ‘It’s horrible’

Hue Jackson isn’t sugarcoating his shortcomings.

After the Browns fell to the visiting Bengals in Week 4 and saw their record drop to 2-29 dating back to the 2015 season, the Cleveland coach acknowledged his overall mark of 1-19 as the team’s leader is disappointing.

I don’t like my record any more than you do or anybody does, Jackson told reporters Monday, via It is horrible. And I will be the first to tell you that. … I don’t like losing. I’ll be the first to tell you that.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin voiced his displeasure with Brown during his Tuesday media address and emphasized that the star wideout needs to show more restraint instead of throwing a tantrum.
Elite Womens Cornelius Lucas Jersey
It doesn’t need to happen. It shouldn’t happen. Hopefully, he learned a lesson through that, Tomlin said. A.B. is a competitor, we all know that. It aids him, it aids us. He has to control [his emotions]. If not, it can work against him, it can work against us. Those are lessons you learn along the way.

Authentic Womens Thomas Rawls Jersey Roethlisberger also was critical of Brown during his Tuesday appearance on 93.7 The Fan.

I don’t know [if] he needs to react that way. He’s superhuman on the football field, and when that [sideline behavior] happens it almost brings him back to being a mere mortal, if you will. Because it gets in his head and it just messes with all of us a little bit, Roethlisberger said. I’m not trying to call AB out. I just think this is causing a distraction that none of us really need.

Packers place tackle Jason Spriggs Jersey on injured reserve

The Packers have placed tackle Jason Spriggs on injured reserve as he continues to battle a hamstring injury, the team annonced Thursday.

The move corresponds to Green Bay bringing defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois back to the active squad.
Authentic Kids Brett Favre Jersey
Mens Vic Beasley Jersey Spriggs was unable to play in the Packers’ 34-23 loss to the Falcons in Week 2, and the injury must be severe enough for him to miss multiple games this season.

The 23-year-old played in every game last season, but the Packers opted to start Kyle Murphy at right tackle after Bryan Bulaga injured his ankle over the summer.

Francois returns to the team after he was released on Sept. 13.

It didn’t matter for the Bears, who overcame their mistakes and prevailed in overtime without ever giving the Steelers a chance to score. It’s remarkable to consider that the Bears could easily be 2-1 right now with wins over a pair of 11-win playoff teams from a year ago, given that they just beat the Steelers and came within a dropped pass in the end zone of beating the Falcons in Week 1. It’s even more remarkable, I suppose, that they lost by 22 points to the Buccaneers in between those two performances.

With Mike Glennon officially earning the title of embattled after that ugly loss to the Bucs, the Bears simply decided to look past their quarterback problem and run the ball down Pittsburgh’s throat. Despite missing starting guard Josh Sitton and losing center Hroniss Grasu to an injury during the game, the Bears gashed a Pittsburgh run defense that was without two front-seven pieces, Stephon Tuitt and T.J. Watt. The combination of Cohen and Jordan Howard carried the ball 35 times for 216 yards in addition to serving as the team’s top two receivers on the day. By the Joe Thomas rushing efficiency metric, more than 50 percent of Chicago’s running plays on the day were successful.

Can the Sean McVay Jersey led Rams knock off Washington?

The Los Angeles Rams could not have asked for a better start to their 2017 campaign. They completely annihilated the Indianapolis Colts, 46-9, in front of their own fans. Sophomore quarterback Jared Goff showed why he was worth the No. 1 pick in 2016, collecting 306 passing yards and one touchdown. Indeed, he looked confident and poised in the pocket.

Game Mens ArDarius Stewart Jersey The Rams have a chance to get off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2001 — but they have to go through Washington, McVay’s old stomping grounds, to do so. McVay served as Washington’s offensive coordinator from 2014-16. After orchestrating Washington’s third-ranked offense last year, he took the head coaching job in Los Angeles to groom Goff into a franchise quarterback.

McVay’s already responsible for tapping into Kirk Cousins’ potential, so Washington shouldn’t be surprised that Goff is performing well under McVay’s tutelage. The only question now is whether McVay can remain undefeated in this young season by handing Washington its second loss.

Former Colts general manager Bill Polian joined the ESPN LA Morning Show this week to talk football, but said Jackson may need to consider a transition to wide receiver based on his “girth and skill set.”

He’s not alone. Others have, and others will, make the same suggestion in the next few months.
Kids Henrik Sedin Jersey
Thankfully, the group of radio hosts — including former NFL receiver Keyshawn Johnson — reacted incredulously to Polian’s statement and disagreed. As well they should, because it’s ridiculous.

It’s Time for John Fox to Go

I would first like to say that I don’t like advocating for people to lose their jobs. Losing a job sucks. Failure in general, sucks.

However, professional sports is a bottom-line business and the players, coaches and front office personnel are generally compensated for the fact that they may be out of a job at any moment.

When the results aren’t there, people lose their jobs. It goes that way in many lines of business but especially in pro sports.

I also think that fans are all aware that the likelihood of the Bears making an in-season coaching change is all but nil. Frankly, as grim as things seem right now, it pales in comparison to the waning days of the Marc Trestman era when a coach openly admitted to circulating previously anonymous rumors about his own quarterback.

Yet the entire organization stood by it all, warming themselves on the flames of the dumpster fire and waited until the season ended to make the final move everybody saw coming.

So if they were willing to stomach that, this will be easy.

Now, with all of that being said, what is John Fox giving the Bears right now? A lot of the team’s blame has been placed on quarterback Dak Prescott. While it was not solely his fault, it’s clear why so much blame has been put on his shoulders: he plays the most important position on the field, he is the leader of the team, and he didn’t have his best performance.

Matt Bowen Jersey offers his initial thoughts off of Sunday’s game, including an assessment of the Seahawks’ backfield.

Tevin Coleman caught a touchdown and ripped off a 35-yard run against Green Bay on Sunday night, but it’s clear that the third-year back remains well behind Devonta Freeman on the depth chart. Freeman matched Coleman’s target total (two) and out-carried him 19 to 6 in the game. On the year, Freeman has played 73 snaps to Coleman’s 44. Freeman, who has been a top-six fantasy running back each of the past two seasons, remains locked in as a top-end option at the position. Coleman is a fringe RB2 who should be in lineups when the matchup is right, as was the case on Sunday night.

Maybe the best news for the Chargers is that it would be statistically improbable to keep losing this many close games. The Chargers are 1-10 in games decided by seven or fewer points the past two seasons, and more wins are bound to come from those situations.

Authentic Shaquill Griffin Jersey A 22-point win was followed by a 21-point loss for Jacksonville. The good news is if the Jags can get stability at quarterback, the team could really be going somewhere. Leonard Fournette is second in rushes and grinding out yards, and the pass defense has yielded the fourth-best opponent Total QBR.

Three teams have played twice this season and allowed one or fewer touchdowns: the Panthers, the Ravens and the Bills. The offense might lack some firepower, but the defense doesn’t.

Which impressive Week 2 performances should you believe in?

Doug Martin Jersey had an excellent preseason and could be looking at another 1,000-yard season when he returns.

Comeback Player of the Year: Doug Martin, RB, Buccaneers: After rushing for only 421 yards and three touchdowns in eight games last season, Martin looks to have a bounce-back season. He was limited by a hamstring injury and then suspended the final game of the season because of a substance-abuse policy violation that will cost him the first three games of the 2017 season. But Martin had an excellent preseason and could be looking at another 1,000-yard season when he returns.

Coach of the Year: Mike Mularkey, Titans: Tennessee added a wealth of talent in the offseason, through free agency and the draft. That should result in an AFC South championship and complete the turnaround Mularkey began when he was named interim coach in 2015.

If you told those bettors on New England over 28.5 that this game would have 69 combined points, they would have liked their chances. But the Patriots fell just short of that in the first bad beat of the NFL season.

The New England over certainly got off to a good start — an opening drive touchdown less than three minutes in put the defending champs up 7-0. The Patriots got it right back after a Kareem Hunt fumble but would eventually turn it over on downs, marking the first of several missed opportunities.
Elite Womens Joey Gallo Jersey
Late in the third quarter, New England led 24-21 and had the ball inside the Kansas City 10-yard line. But after a Tom Brady-to-James White touchdown was called back due to an illegal forward pass, the Pats settled for a field goal. Needing just two more points to hit the over early in the fourth quarter, New England once again turned it over on downs in Kansas City territory. Three punts on their final three possessions would seal the deal for both the Patriots and those who bet them to score over 28.5.
