The Dome Patrol: Four men who revived the New Orleans Saints

nfl jerseys cheap The Falcons keep throwing past-their-prime solutions at their pass-rushing dilemma (read: Dwight Freeney), but there’s a glimmer of hope tonight with Saints starting left tackle Terron Armstead out for the game with a knee injury. If the Falcons can’t disrupt Brees, it only heaps more pressure on uber-talented cornerback Desmond Trufant to isolate and shut down the New Orleans air attack. Not easy in the lathered-up Superdome, where Brees and cheap jerseys and friends have scored 8.9 more points per game, chalked up 50-plus more yards and been nearly 8 percentage points better on third down at home than on the road. The Falcons’ defense has yet to evolve into the Seahawks-esque whirlwind fans were promised when Dan Quinn arrived from Seattle. To be fair, the coach didn’t inherit much, but it feels like Atlanta hasn’t been able to rush the passer in a thousand eons. Vic…

Tyreek Hill becoming valuable asset for Chiefs’ playoff hopes

cheap authentic mlb jerseys wholesale The Chiefs’ 21-13 win over the Oakland Raiders will be remembered as the game that put Kansas City in the driver’s seat to win the AFC West. Both teams now hold 10-3 records but the Chiefs own all tiebreakers after having beaten the Raiders twice this season. What the contest also did was serve as a national coming-out party for one of the most dynamic rookies in the league. If Hill hadn’t been playing, the Chiefs probably don’t win this game. Hill scored the game’s first touchdown by catching a 36-yard pass from quarterback Alex Smith in the second quarter. He also gave the Chiefs a 21-3 lead a few minutes later with a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown. None of this, by the way, is anything new to people who’ve followed this team or even a surprise to Hill. As he said after…

Kansas City Chiefs sign running back Bishop Sankey

cheap authentic nfl jerseys wholesale The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, birthed by the forefathers of the American Football League, have been going at it since 1960, when the Chiefs were known as the Dallas Texans and the Silver and Black sported Black and Gold. The two franchises appeared in the first two Super Bowls and remained bitter rivals through the John Madden era, the Raiders’ move to Los Angeles (and back), Joe Montana’s move from the Bay to the K, the Rich Gannon resurgence and beyond. The rivalry has stayed dormant on the national stage for some years now, ever since Oakland spiraled into irrelevance post-Jon Gruden. But now in 2016, both the Raiders and Chiefs are playoff, nay, Super Bowl contenders, boosted by gutsy play-calling, transcendent defenders, timely turnovers and breakout offensive weapons. Smith’s numbers during the Chefs’ nine-game winning streak (68.6 percent completion rate, 12 passing…

Blake Bortles sharp in Jaguars’ rout of Titans

cheap jerseys for sale Amid flashes of transcendence as a rookie, Mariota’s 39.5 passer rating on throws over 20 yards ranked 33rd among 37 qualifying quarterbacks. When I studied Mariota’s 2015 game film for Around The NFL‘s “Redraft” series last offseason, I noted Mariota’s inconsistent release on deeper passes. It didn’t help that he had no reliable wideouts capable of winning the hand-fighting battles with defensive backs on the sidelines and deep down the field. I got a chance to play with Blake and cheap nfl jerseys and McCain in Pittsburgh, and I’m not surprised they’ve continued to play under coach Dick LeBeau. Blake (or “Zilla,” as we called him in Pittsburgh) hasn’t made a start this season but has played in 13 games, giving up catches on 48 percent the targets thrown his way (at 11.2 yards a pop). He always seems to be around the ball and positions…
