The defending rushing champ is likely to start a six-game suspension on Sunday

Durant hit consecutive 3-pointers to get Golden State back within 101-94 then dunked the next time down to make it 103-96 with 4:40 to go before finding Thompson for a 3 on the next possession.

Durant’s dunk at 2:12 made it 108-105. Curry had a steal and drive with 1:51 left but couldn’t convert, then missed a 3 as Golden State kept possession. Durant missed from deep the next time down.

“The way the game is played, and just to see the amount of quarterbacks that have gone down this year,” Griffin said, “I would say, yeah, there’s no way that myself and Kap wouldn’t be in the league. If you look at it from a pure stat standpoint, we should definitely be in the league. If you look at it from a talent standpoint, we should definitely be in the league.

According to Sullivan, “zero” political topics were broached when the Penguins visited the Oval Office before the ceremony. He said they presented Trump with “a gift,” but didn’t specify what.

At similar events in the past, teams have traditionally given the president a custom jersey for a photo op, which did not happen this time. A 118-word press release appeared on the Penguins’ website featuring a picture of several players, but their social media accounts posted nothing from the afternoon. No players were made available for comment to reporters after Sullivan took one final question: Was the president wrong “to attack” the NFL?

“Everybody’s going to have their opinions on the matter.” Sullivan replied. “I don’t believe it’s my place to share it.”

The defending rushing champ is likely to start a six-game suspension on Sunday, and it barely registers on the psyche of Football America. Nothing weirder than this: The Saints defense and special teams outscored every player in fantasy football Sunday. ducks-094

As they did in the first period, the teams traded goals in the second.

Did we collectively think it was gone? Not really. The pitcher never turns to watch, his posture suggesting (to me) a deep fly out. The batter takes off in a sprint. The crowd behind home plate gets immediately more interested — at the 4-, 27- and 53-second marks in the video — but nobody shoots out of a seat or raises arms in triumph. We have three broadcasts on that highlight clip, and only the third seems to be talking himself into it being a home run.

This was the first game of the 2017 postseason, and we were still so na?ve. There had already been three home runs in the game — it was just the second inning when Frazier hit this — but we still had a basic faith that some physical force would draw smaller objects, like small spheres, toward larger objects, like the Earth. If Frazier hit this ball today, we’d all be so sure it was a home run that we’d probably stop watching it.

Hall broke the deadlock with his second of the season at 11:09 with a wrist shot from the slot set up by Bratt’s forecheck, but Perlini pulled Arizona even 48 seconds after Hall’s goal.

It was a really good game, but you want to win hockey games, Markstrom said. I hate losing.

Stephon Gilmore Authentic Jersey Radulov won it when he carried the puck the length of the ice and fired a shot over Markstrom’s blocker-side shoulder.

Markstrom helped keep the first period scoreless when he made several impressive saves during a Stars power play midway through the period, including off a point-blank shot by Jamie Benn. Markstrom also stopped a short-handed breakaway by Gemel Smith in the waning seconds.

Seguin opened the scoring in the second with Canucks forward Thomas Vanek in the penalty box for the second time in the first three minutes of the period. Seguin one-timed his seventh goal of the season with an Alex Ovechkin-like shot while down on one knee at 3:11. The goal broke Vancouver’s streak of 14 consecutive penalties killed.

The trip’s headline moment came in the second quarter of Friday’s 120-117 loss at Golden State.

So, as usual, the stakes are high when Alabama — No. 1 in the polls, but No. 2 in the College Football Playoff selection committee rankings — hosts LSU, which is 19th in the CFB rankings.

Alabama coach Nick Saban has seen improvement from the Tigers over the past few games in SEC play, which includes a win at Florida and a victory over Auburn.

“LSU has gotten better as the season has gone on,” Saban said. “Probably the worst thing that happened for all of us in the SEC is when they lost to Troy.

Seattle goes from having the worst starting left tackle (with a rating of 65 Overall) to the fifth best at the position. Granted, Rees Odhiambo is a guard who was forced to take over at LT following an injury to the original starter, but he struggled mightily there, ranking 73rd in the video game behind all other starters, many backups and free agents.

Two days later in Los Angeles, Lonzo Ball and the Lakers, perhaps fueled by boastful comments from the Washington side, rallied for an overtime win.

Wizards guard Bradley Beal and Warriors forward Draymond Green were both ejected after scrapping late in the second quarter. Already playing without Markieff Morris (hernia surgery), Washington couldn’t hold onto an 18-point lead against the defending NBA champions.

Watson was nearly the equal of Wilson, throwing for 402 yards and four touchdowns. But he couldn’t come up with a final answer and was intercepted by Richard Sherman with 7 seconds left on a desperation throw.

He’s got a very strong arm, Rodriguez said, but he’s got as good a touch on a deep ball as any quarterback I’ve had.

Two plays later, Taylor burst virtually untouched up the middle on a 79-yard touchdown run that boosted Arizona’s lead to 37-27, a potential 14-point turnaround.

Arizona coach Rick Tocchet downplayed the team’s record in his pregame talk.

I said, `You guys are playing hard. Keep doing the right things and good things will happen, Tocchet said. And it did. We just have to keep that mentality.

Finding a new backup quarterback won’t be too hard and won’t take long. Likely by Tuesday, the Patriots will scoop up a veteran 鈥?Brian Hoyer or T.J. Yates, perhaps 鈥?to fill that void. But neither will be the future of the position for the Patriots and franchise quarterbacks don’t grow on trees.

Presumably, if the Patriots were willing to trade Garoppolo, it’s because the team didn’t think he was that Michael Johnson Womens Jersey player. A 2018 second-round pick as compensation certainly indicates that the Patriots didn’t think that highly of their 2014 second-round pick.

But it may just be New England recognizing the precarious reality that keeping Garoppolo was going to be a logistical nightmare.
Joey Bosa Authentic Jersey
Like when Keller pick-pocketed Hischier last weekend. Or when he was the third man into the zone against Philadelphia and kept his body square to the net upon receiving the trail pass, disguising his decision until hitting Goligoski for a one-timer below the right faceoff circle. Sure, there are times that Keller might get bumped off pucks due to comparative lack of strength. And he’ll surely encounter some form of shooting drought like most everyone. But through a dozen games together, Tocchet already can tell that Keller craves moments like these. The game’s on the line, he’s looking back at me like he wants on the ice, Tocchet says. He’s not hiding. He wants to go.

Reiser, 53, has been with the company for 17 seasons, first as a crew chief and eventually graduating to a managerial role. Reiser has been offered a position in the car production side of RFR, but he has yet to decide where his future lies. Calls to Roush Fenway Racing were not immediately returned. Neither Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Trevor Bayne or Greg Biffle finished inside the top 20 in the Sprint Cup standings this season. For the second year, there was not a Roush driver in the Chase.

After a ninth-inning, one-handed Yasiel Puig home run put the Dodgers within one, Chris Taylor’s two-out RBI single tied the game. In the 10th inning, the Astros once again got to Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, and Alex Bregman’s RBI single gave the Astros the walk-off victory.

Most notably, the new coaching staff has revitalized running back Todd Gurley and turned Jared Goff into a solid NFL quarterback in just his second season. Gurley entered the weekend third in the NFL with 627 yards rushing, while Goff is seventh in the league with 1,719 yards passing.

The defense has made an impressive transition to coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme, with All-Pro lineman Aaron Donald returning to dominance after holding out for the entire preseason. The rest of the defense has overcome injuries and absences to remain solid around linebacker Alec Ogletree, its emotional leader.

The biggest thing that we’ll always strive to achieve is that continuous improvement, McVay said. I think when you look at what our team has done, we do feel like we’re getting better.

Chiefs cut C.J. Spiller, re-signed him, cut him, re-signed him, and just cut him again

Spencer Ware went down with a PCL injury in preseason that required surgery to repair. Keeping Spiller around makes sense, especially since Ware is likely to miss the entire season. But, no:

Gregory, who played collegiately at Nebraska, was once considered by some a potential top-five selection in the 2015 NFL Draft. However, he failed a drug test for marijuana before the scouting combine that year, and his draft stock plummeted. The Cowboys selected him in the second round, No. 60 overall.

Week 7 provides one of the best primetime slates of the 2017 season.

First, the Chiefs face the Raiders on Thursday night in Oakland in one of the league’s marquee rivalries. A Super Bowl rematch between the reigning-champion Patriots and the Falcons is the primetime matchup on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium. Another rivalry in Redskins-Eagles is set for “Monday Night Football.”

Sporting his Raiders helmet as cameras rolled for his reality show, Lynch showed off some fancy footwork and a nasty stiff-arm on an unsuspecting prepster. It took four, five or six Bulldogs players to bring him down on another play.

Asked how he felt about Lynch working out with a high school team during his suspension, Downing said, “To be honest with you, I’m so focused on this situational Thursday. We have third down, red zone, all of that going in today. I was dialed in on Buffalo.

Cleveland already has quarterback problems, and it has now lost its best player for the season. Thomas is considered one of the greatest left tackles of all time. The Browns are currently 0-7, and this injury is a major blow to the offense and the team as a whole.

Youth Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Jersey Though Jones and Snyder were angry with him — they felt that if he had forced Kaepernick to stand a year ago, this crisis could have been averted — York and Jeffrey Womens Weston Richburg Jersey Lurie of the Eagles had emerged as thoughtful leaders. Knowing that many of the players who were still kneeling were on his 49ers, York emphasized that he understood the business concerns and that each market was different, and that he had been talking to his players for a long time and would continue to do so. Lurie had spoken up during the meeting, supporting the players’ right to kneel.

The Ravens wide receiver has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Vikings with a concussion, the team announced .

Wallace was placed in concussion protocol after taking a hit from Vikings safety Marcus Sherels on the team’s second series of the game, which drew an unnecessary roughness penalty.

Given Baltimore’s short week, Wallace could miss the team’s Thursday night matchup against the Dolphins.

Baltimore was already thin at receiver with Jeremy Maclin out with a shoulder injury and Breshad Perriman still in the concussion protocol. Wallace’s injury leaves Michael Campanaro, Chris Moore and Griff Whalen as the only healthy options.

But Goodell had purposefully tabled the discussion out of deference to Jones, giving him the evening to speak to owners and gauge the support for a league-wide mandate to stand.
