Le’Veon Bell: No team wants to face Steelers right now

cheap nhl jerseys Led by Eli Apple’s two takeaways and Olivier Vernon’s sixth and seventh sacks in the last five games, the Giants’ flourishing defense held its own on the road. After picking on cupcake opponents during a six-game winning streak, though, the offense’s woes came home to roost. Prior to Sterling Shepard’s garbage-time touchdown in the game’s final minute, New York’s lone score was a 13-yard screen pass to Rashad Jennings, capitalizing on a Bell fumble inside Pittsburgh’s 17-yard line. After scoring 30 or more points five times last season, the Giants are one of just five teams (Texans, 49ers, Bears, Browns) not to reach that mark this year. They entered the week tied for 30th in big plays and are on pace for their worst rushing attack since 1945. To top it all off, Eli Manning’s arm seems to be growing weaker each game as he consistently underthrows…

Did Geno Smith lose New York Jets’ backup QB job?

authentic nba jerseys wholesale Ryan Fitzpatrick went belly-up on Wednesday. After an eyebrow-raising flip-flop from Todd Bowles, the Jets decided to bench The Artist Formerly Known As Fitzmagic in favor of Geno Smith. This was something of a cosmic joke for Jets fans certain they’d already boarded the GenoCoaster for the final time. The seeds for Fitzpatrick’s demise were planted back in Week 3. The Jets flew to Kansas City on a high, coming off a Thursday night win over the Bills in which their quarterback played like a better-educated Joe Namath. Seriously, I invite you to watch the Game Pass footage. Fitzpatrick was an outrageous mad bomber. Unfortunately for the Jets, it turned out to be a mirage. Against the Chiefs, Fitzpatrick suffered a six-interception meltdown and never recovered. Anyone still doubting Terrelle Pryor isn’t watching him play. The massive-bodied Browns receiver piled up 101 yards playing primarily against…

How will New England Patriots fare in first four games?

cheap stitched nfl jerseys While preseason sensation A.J. Derby is playing meaningful snaps for the Broncos, the Patriots are bemoaning their lack of quality tight-end depth. A month after drawing praise from Tony Gonzalez as the greatest tight-end duo in NFL history, Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett were too injured to do much damage Sunday. Gronkowski never returned after exiting with a back issue late in the first quarter. Bennett appeared to aggravate an ankle injury that has been dogging him since Week 5. If the dynamic tight-end duo isn’t healthy, Brady’s offense devolves into a methodical, dink-and-dunk horizontal attack with little margin for error. This game displayed the yin and the yang of Ryan Fitzpatrick as Todd Bowles’ chosen quarterback. Fitzpatrick kept the score competitive against the AFC’s dominant superpower, making a handful of big throws to Quincy Enunwa and Brandon Marshall. He was also stripped by Chris Long with…

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…

Halftime hurry-up helps Nugent beat Jets

cheap hockey jerseys Lewis’ message appeared to get across to his locker room. Reporters on Monday quoted the player penalized on the last snap, cornerback Adam Jones, saying “I ain’t talking about Pittsburgh.” That was a play marred by jagged edges of emotion as well as the NFL later saying the officials blew the call when Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter stalked the Bengals huddle illegally, which is what Jones was objecting when he got a personal foul that gave the Steelers the win. “You don’t need to remember. In terms of like game plan wise, we’re watching film to see what they did well in the last game and the previous games,” said safety George Iloka. “It’s a division game. You already know what it brings, whether it’s the Ravens, Steelers or Browns. All those games are tough and physical. The only thing we can take away from the…
