Beyond physical comparisons, Mayfield and Wilson share intangible traits and similar college arcs.

The New Orleans Saints won their seventh straight game Sunday, outgaining their opponent with more time of possession in each contest. According to Elias, only four other teams have had that dominant of a stretch: the 1977 Dallas Cowboys, 1984 Miami Dolphins, 1985 Chicago Bears and 2015 Carolina Panthers. That’s a good enough run to put them at the top of this week’s power rankings.

Unlike other power rankings, these take into account a team’s actual record, what its record should be based on points scored and allowed 锟斤拷 also known as their Pythagorean win percentage 锟斤拷 and how much better or worse its opponents are in relation to a .500 team. A good team playing against good opponents will be near the top, while one that struggles against mediocre or poor teams will trend toward the bottom.

After back-to-back losses to the New York Jets and Saints, the Buffalo Bills decided to make a change a quarterback, benching Tyrod Taylor in favor of rookie Nathan Peterman, a rookie fifth-round pick. According to ESPN, Taylor is the 19th-best passer this season, while the game charters at Pro Football Focus have him ninth out of 31 qualified passers, making it look like the Bills are throwing in the towel.

But the quarterbacking company that Brady will keep this weekend is not exactly what anyone would have expected. It is, by the NFL’s customary late-January standards, pretty sketchy, actually. There’s not a Manning to be found. Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan were bounced from the playoffs this past weekend. Cam Newton exited a week earlier. Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson didn’t even make it.

Joe Theismann Jersey Wilson was renowned for his leadership and was elected a captain at Wisconsin after Authentic Brad Marchand Jersey transferring. Mayfield is renowned for his leadership and was elected a captain at Oklahoma after transferring. Each became the face of a powerhouse program after entering as an outsider.

There’s not a better leader in college football than Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma defensive end Ogbonnia Okoronkwo said earlier this season. And you can quote me on that. That guy, look, I’ll follow him anywhere.

Guy, No. 2 Virginia pull away to beat Wake 59-49

Points are always at a premium in No. 2 Virginia’s low-scoring games. So when the Cavaliers finally found their way to the free-throw line after halftime, they cashed in on those freebies — and sidestepped Wake Forest’s upset bid.
Women's Elite Tom Waddle Navy Blue Jersey: Vapor Untouchable Home #87 NFL Chicago Bears Nike
Kyle Guy scored 17 points, and Virginia beat the Demon Deacons 59-49 on Sunday night for its 10th straight win.

Authentic Mens Timothy Liljegre Jersey De’Andre Hunter added 16 points to help the first-place Cavaliers (18-1, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) extend their longest winning streak since 2015-16 and open league play with seven victories for the second time in four years.

Mayfield is the shortest quarterback invited to Mobile, Ala. The other quarterbacks are 6-4 Washington State QB Luke Falk, 6-4 Tanner Lee of Nebraska, 6-5 Josh Allen of Wyoming, 6-3 Richmond QB Kyle Lauletta, 6-4 Kurt Benkert of Virginia, 6-3 Brandon Silvers of Troy, and 6-4 Mike White from Western Kentucky. Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph, who is 6-5 and threw for 4,904 yards with 37 touchdowns and nine interceptions, was invited to the Senior Bowl but a foot injury will prevent him from participating.

Jacksonville had the NFL’s second-best defense in the regular season, but, after holding the Bills to just three points in the wild-card round, had to win a 45-42 shootout in Pittsburgh to reach Filip Chytil Authentic Jersey the AFC title game.

The defense did score against the Steelers on Telvin Smith’s 50-yard fumble return and may have to score again if the Jaguars are going to knock off the Patriots.

But the league and the compensation committee are sticking to the contention that no further voting is necessary after the owners voted, 32-0, during their May meeting in Chicago to authorize the committee, led by Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, to negotiate the extension with Goodell.

All of which looks good on paper 斜薪 but the Eagles wouldn’t have made it this far had they not shown it on the field in the division round against the Falcons, with their last-minute goal-line stand to save their 15-10 win. Outdoing a Vikings team that was first defensively in points and yards put even more shine on an often overlooked and underrated unit.

Seahawks fire offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell

Darrell Bevell’s run in Seattle has come to an end.

Prior to his Seahawks run, Bevell served as coordinator for the Vikings from 2006 to 2010. With coaching friends around the league and a resume stocked with accolades, he’ll find work again.

It’s late in the process for Seattle to make a switch, with new coaching staffs forming league-wide, but working with Wilson and Carroll make this an interesting landing spot for candidates. Carroll — typically loyal to his staff — could also choose to promote from within.

If Cam Newton deserves the chance to grow under a fresh-thinking play-caller in Carolina, the same is true of Wilson. Repeatedly asking your quarterback to singlehandedly save the day can be fun to watch, but it comes with a cost.

The latest example is Jim Plunkett, once a No. 1 overall draft pick in the NFL who quarterbacked the Raiders (first in Oakland and later in Los Angeles) to two Super Bowl titles, winning MVP honors the first time, a 27-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XV.

Plunkett, 69, is the subject of a profile in Friday’s Mercury News in which he discusses being in constant pain, remembering 10 concussions suffered while assuming there were many more and saying: My life sucks. It’s no fun being in this body right now. Everything hurts.

There are a couple other drugs I take — I can’t know them all, he said. I’ve got to take them every day to quote-unquote survive.patriots_150_551ce72f98304b1e-180x180

Case Keenum might not have been the planned starter for Minnesota this season, but he’s sure played like one. Keenum went 12-3 under center with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions, and his QB rating of 98.3 ranked eighth in the NFL, just ahead of Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson.

Philly quarterback Nick Foles was also thrust into action after an injury to starter Carson Wentz. He played in just three regular-season games and wasn’t as effective (five touchdowns, two interceptions), but he’s 3-0 in games that mattered, including last week’s divisional round win over the Falcons. Foles had a passer rating of 100 against the defending NFC champs.

Tierney has also found glaring stats that pushed him to one side of the over-under in the AFC Championship Game. In addition, Dragiev is ultra-confident in his Jaguars-Patriots spread pick and Roberts has a huge x-factor for Vikings-Eagles that you’re not even thinking of.

The refs weren’t done with the Panthers. After the Panthers took possession, Newton was forced to heave one out of bounds thanks to pressure from the Saints’ pass rush. He didn’t have a receiver in the vicinity, and he was flagged for intentional grounding.
Letroy Guion Mens Jersey
Technically, the case can be made for this call 鈥?unless Newton was outside of the pocket. It’s close, but it looks like he probably was.

Greg Olsen said after the game that other officials didn’t even agree with the call.

It cost the Panthers 13 yards, giving them a third-and-23. Devin Funchess lost Newton’s next shot at the end zone in the Super Dome lights, and it went incomplete. On fourth down, Vonn Bell sacked Newton, forcing the Panthers to turn it over on downs. The intentional grounding call wasn’t the reason the Panthers lost, but it sure did hurt their chances.

The final game of the weekend could be the best.

It’s the third matchup between these NFC South divisional opponents. The Saints beat the Panthers both times, 34-13 and 31-21. They’ve had the Panthers’ number all season.
Authentic Reebok Men's Felix Potvin Royal Blue New Third Jersey - NHL #29 Toronto Maple Leafs
Lots has been discussed regarding the Saints offense, including my video on the dynamic duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram in the backfield. The offense will always be a key for the Saints.

Unlike in previous seasons, the Saints defense has been able to match the offensive production. The unit is lead up front by Cam Jordan. He’s still nationally underrated, which is criminal. Jordan has 13 sacks, 28 quarterback hits, and 17 tackles for a loss. He’s a monster who’s been particularly hard to block for the Panthers this season. If Cam can continue to harass Cam, that will help slow down the Panthers offense.

I’ve said this all season. The Panthers come and go as Cam Newton plays. In 11 wins, Cam has an 18-5 TD to INT ratio and a 95 passer rating. In five losses, that ratio is 4:11 and his passer rating falls to 53.6.

Carolina needs good Cam to show up to keep up with the Saints offense. Additionally, the Panthers need Cam to be his special self on third down, where he’s in the bottom three for qualifying quarterbacks in completion percentage and passer rating. The Panthers would be wise to get Newton going early in the run game. He’s still exceptional in there and that usually boosts his confidence, as well as the entire offense.

Faced with the prospect of losing defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to Detroit, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to Indianapolis and linebackers coach Brian Flores Martin St. Louis Youth jersey to Arizona, the New England Patriots’ coaching losses may go even deeper.

Patriots special-teams coach Joe Judge also is working on an expiring contract and could leave New England after this season to join one of his fellow departing assistant coaches, league sources told ESPN.

Usually in situations like that when we’re up in the two minute, with the corners we play 10 yards off, if not more, Ramsey said. Two plays before that, with Peterman we played the same coverage, we played off and he threw that quick hitch to A.J. [Bouye]’s side. They line up in the same formation, just flipped on my side so I figured they were running the same route. I took a read step and as soon as he threw it, I broke on it.

Philadelphia has plenty to prove despite a 13-3 season. The Eagles lost MVP candidate Wentz to a torn ACL in Week 14, handing an explosive offense over to Nick Foles. The former Pro Bowler hasn’t been especially bad as a short-notice Womens Zach Werenski Jersey starter, but he hasn’t been Wentz. Philly scored 31 points per game with its young gun behind center. Under Foles, that number has dropped to 17.7 鈥?although one of those games was a shutout in a meaningless Week 17 tilt vs. the Cowboys.

It was a controversial call. Panthers’ head coach Ron Rivera told reporters it wasn’t even explained to him on the field.

According to tight end Greg Olsen, other officials on the field even disagreed with the decision before it could be officially announced.

Other than those specifics, Gruden didn’t talk much about his contract. But he did make a joke about the reported length of the deal.

Gruden was asked by former Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson whether or not the team included a no-trade clause in his contract. Gruden said that they did, and he also said there is no ownership stake in the team included in his deal.

He addressed Woodson directly another time, and with a funnier quote. Gruden’s last game as the Raiders head coach was the infamous Tuck Rule game. Woodson is the one who stripped the ball from Tom Brady. The Tuck Rule was born when officials ruled it a forward pass. Gruden made it clear that he disagrees.

It was notable enough to dive into the inner battles over the national anthem issue between the league office and owners in a Seth Wickersham/Don Van Natta story for ESPN last week. But it seemed more jarring Sunday when Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported that 17 owners participated in a conference call Thursday to explore roadblocking what seemed to be an imminent five-year contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell.

Brown was a full participant during the Steelers’ Wednesday and Thursday practices, but he fell ill on Friday and didn’t practice. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin sent Brown home — telling reporters that he didn’t want Brown to get anyone else sick.

“Antonio has looked really good,” Tomlin said, via the team’s official website. “He didn’t participate today. I sent him home with an illness. I didn’t want him to get any of the guys that weren’t sick, sick. We’ll bring him back in the building tomorrow. I don’t have a lot of reservations about him from a physical health standpoint. We do need to get him well from an illness standpoint.”

Because it’s uncertain now if Goodell’s contract is fit to be signed today, or if the owners can still try to negotiate the deal down, it may be a moot point. But as one ownership source told me Sunday, Jones wouldn’t be going to this extent if he didn’t think he could affect the final number on Goodell’s deal—or whether there’s a deal at all. This source also said he thought Goodell would react badly to taking any significant pay cut. wings_1035

In his own time as a Branden Albert Authentic Jersey recruiter, Colson’s father鈥攚ho had been out of college coaching since Boston College fired Skinner in 2010鈥攈ad seen the same situation play out. While at GW he scouted a 6’3 tweener named Chris Monroe, who was lighting up an AAU tournament, at one point posterizing an opponent who had committed to a high major. Afterward, a coach from that school confided in Colson that he could never offer Monroe a scholarship because he didn’t know what position he would play. His position is player, Colson told him. To this day Monroe remains GW’s all-time leading scorer.

When it came to evaluating Bonzie II, even the elder Colson’s coaching buddies were similarly unsure. O.K., they don’t see it, he told himself, but some guys do.
Elite Womens Mark Sanchez Jersey
One of them was Brey who, as anyone who saw his where’s-the-buffet garb at this season’s Maui Invitational can attest, is comfortable with unconventional looks. Colson reminded Brey of Luke Harangody, a 6’7, three-star power forward with a similar nose for the ball who blossomed into the Big East Player of the Year as a senior, in 2008. Brey showed Colson a film compilation of Harangody and 6’5 forward Pat Connaughton, now earning steady minutes as a guard for the Trail Blazers, in an effort to win him over. We have a track record with guys like you, Brey told him. When word spread that Notre Dame had offered Colson a scholarship, skeptical coaches from other programs called Brey’s assistants to confirm the news.

The Vikings retook the lead with a 53-yard field goal by Kai Forbath, but left Brees with 89 seconds and one timeout on the clock. Against the NFL’s best defense, Brees moved the ball to the Minnesota 25-yard line 鈥?thanks to a fourth-and-10 conversion 鈥?to set up Wil Lutz’s 43-yard field goal.

He was also 9 of 12 on third down to help keep drives alive and the Saints offense on the sideline. Keenum was superb during the regular season, throwing for 3,547 yards with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He wasn’t even supposed to be the starter, but took over for Sam Bradford in Week 2 and the Vikings never skipped a beat.

Keenum was in the MVP conversation late in the season and showed why on Sunday.

Brey calls it junkyard doggin’ it, the way Colson would bear down on the ball like it’s a scrap of red meat, deflecting passes and scavenging for rebounds, and it was in this mode that Colson made his first impression on his future coach. In early 2013, Martin Ingelsby, then one of Brey’s assistants, had been tipped off by a friend at a scouting service about a forward who might be of interest. In the scouting report Ingelsby found buzzwords often attached to Notre Dame’s type: skilled, versatile, high IQ. On a spring recruiting trip to a Nike EYBL event in California, Ingelsby urged Brey to check the kid out.

Schwartz played four years with Cleveland and now is in his second with the Chiefs, and he has played every regular-season play of a five-and-a-half-year career87 games, 5,891 snaps. If he can play every play for the next five seasons, Schwartz will be in Thomas’ league.

A day after a controversial first-down measurement cost the Raiders a win over the Cowboys, Oakland coach Jack Del Rio was still salty about the call.
Men's Authentic Adidas Niklas Kronwall Camo Jersey - #55 NHL Detroit Red Wings Veterans Day Practice
A late Cowboys drive on Sunday was kept alive after referee Gene Steratore used a folded piece of paper to decide whether Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott picked up a first down on a quarterback sneak.

Limited Kids Madison Bumgarner Jersey The Cowboys, who called a fake punt in their own territory in the second half of Sunday’s 20-17 win over the Raiders, had Prescott sneak it on fourth-and-1 from their own 39-yard line with just over five minutes remaining of what was a tie game. It was originally ruled a first down, but Steratore called for a measurement and then tried to stick the folded piece of paper between the first-down pole and the football.

It was a pretty gutsy to go for it by them in their territory, which basically gave us the win, except it was not called that way, Del Rio said Monday. For some reason we did not recognize the space involved there, but we deal with that as we have to and we move on.
