He just continues to earn everybody’s respect within our program.

“It really kind of ignited us a bit,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

Stanley found Matt VandeBerg for a 39-yard TD reception to push the lead to 15 early in the fourth quarter, and Akrum Wadley put the game away on an 18-yard touchdown run with 8:49 left.

Wadley finished with 115 yards, surpassing the 100-yard mark for the third time this season, and he added a 2-yard TD reception.

Jeff George Jr. threw for 246 yards in his first start of the season — but he also threw three interceptions without finding the end zone.

“That’s never a good thing,”” said Illinois coach Lovie Smith about George’s turnovers. “He made a lot of good plays as much as anything.”

Crawford earned a 10-1 opening-night win against the Pittsburgh Penguins and a 5-1 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Anton Forsberg made 39 saves in his Blackhawks debut Monday against the Maple Leafs.

Patrick Kane (two goals, four assists), Ryan Hartman (one goal, five assists) and Brandon Saad (four goals, one assist) lead Chicago in scoring.

Puck management and discipline will be keys for the Blackhawks against the Canadiens, according to Chicago captain Jonathan Toews.

“We didn’t manage the puck well (against the Maple Leafs), didn’t Wholesale NHL Jerseys win the little battles,” said Toews, who scored his second goal Super Cheap Jerseys Fans of the season against Toronto. “We just put ourselves in positions where we were behind the eight-ball. We had to take some stick penalties. They’re pretty strict with the calls. We have to be a bit more careful and put ourselves in better defensive positions.”

Jamie McMurray was fifth, Jimmie Johnson seventh and Ryan Blaney eighth.

“We put everything into this, everything we have, especially our team, just every day away from our families,” Truex said. “I think they had this car up on the plate on Wednesday or Tuesday with the nose cut off trying to make it better.”

Truex also knows that the celebration Sunday could have been his last for the year. That’s what his girlfriend’s cancer battle has taught him.

“When you get out of the car after a big win, you start thinking about all that stuff, and that’s when it hits you,” Truex said. “It just hits you like a ton of bricks, and it hit me today in Victory Lane, and all of a sudden you can’t talk.

“You feel like an idiot, but there’s just so many things that you’re thinking about and so much emotion and so much you’re thankful for because this stuff is so hard, and you never know if you’ll get another chance to do it. You just never know. It’s definitely an unbelievable feeling.”

“You usually can tell hydration level from my suit,” Hamlin said. “Any time it has white streaks all over it, I’m spent pretty good. I feel pretty bad, no doubt about it.”

Kyle Larson was 10th, Matt Kenseth 11th, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 13th, Brad Keselowski 15th and Busch 29th.

PLAYOFF STANDINGS: The bottom four in the standings headed into Talladega are Kenseth, Keselowski, Blaney and Stenhouse. But, it could have been much worse for Stenhouse, who Toronto Blue Jays Cheap Jerseys was Wholesale Jerseys All all over the board Sunday until he solidly cracked the top-15 late in the race.

Panthers place Greg Olsen on IR with designation to return

The Panthers announced Tuesday that Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen has been placed on injured reserve with a broken foot. The Panthers hope Olsen, who was injured in Sunday’s 9-3 win over the Bills, can return in eight weeks and begin practicing in six weeks.

Olsen would be eligible to practice on Halloween and could play in Carolina’s Week 10 home game against the Dolphins on Nov. 13. The Panthers have their bye the following week before a Nov. 26 showdown with the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

That, the players’ attorneys say, unleashed a cash-grab by, among others, lenders who have charged interest rates of 50 percent or more to players who agreed to pay back the money when they received their parts of the settlement.

“We don’t want to watch these awards be cannibalized,” player attorney Christopher Seeger told Judge Anita B. Brody of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, who is overseeing the settlement.

According to the Times, Brody convened the hearing in response to news reports of what she called “purportedly deceptive or misleading solicitations.”

During the course of Tuesday’s hearing, player attorneys said hundreds of their clients may have been swindled by unscrupulous lenders and advisers, some of whom Nike NFL Jerseys From China described themselves as “claims service providers” who would help players file claims for fees of Philadelphia Eagles Cheap Jerseys up to 15 percent of any cash awards.

We saw plenty of thrilling plays, but players just got up and got back to work.

The Jaguars dominated the game, which was surprising considering all of the bad things we heard about Blake Bortles all week.

The defense was giving the Texans offense hell. Not only did Calais Campbell play up to his new contract, but A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey locked down DeAndre Hopkins. The box score might not reflect that, with Hopkins having seven receptions and a touchdown, but it was a long afternoon for Nuk and the Texans — who eventually benched Tom Savage for Deshaun Watson.

In relief, Watson completed 12 of 23 passes for 102 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Watson led the Texans to a touchdown on his first drive but wasn’t able to make enough magic to complete a comeback effort in the 29-7 loss.

No dancing, no grandstanding, no celebrations of any sort. This is a departure even from the preseason. That gave us a Marvin Jones double-dutch celebration as well as the celebration that sits atop our current rankings: Taco Charlton making imaginary tacos for his teammates.

We still have two games on Monday night, so here’s hoping that players from the Saints, Vikings, Chargers, and Broncos have some fun celebrations in the works. That just wasn’t the case on Sunday.

“After we beat Dallas to go 6-0, the (perfect season) talk Cheap Liverpool Jerseys really started ramping up,” Stallworth said. “Belichick told us, ‘I don’t want to Cheap Kids Jerseys NHL hear any s— about that from any of you about going undefeated.’

The Broncos lost to the Chiefs 29-13.

Manning may be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, but this was perhaps his lowest moment, when he was a shell of himself clinging to his talents.

He had almost as many interceptions (four) as completions (five). Throw in a pair of sacks and a fumble, and the fact that Gary Kubiak had seen enough to put in Osweiler late in the third quarter, and it’s easy to understand why this could qualify for the worst QBR game ever.

And those five completions? Only one of them traveled in the air more than 2 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. Two. Yards.

Unlike most of the other quarterbacks on this list, it all worked out for Manning. He pushed past the bad game and the bad foot and got himself a ring.

That’s the kind of rebound Dalton can only dream of.

The only guy who had a worse Monday night on the sideline was Sergio Dipp. Peterson’s frustration at not playing more became the game’s big story when ESPN cameras captured him giving Saints coach Sean Payton a death stare late in the first half.

Not that it matters to Payton one iota, as Peterson will soon learn. More on that later.

Peterson and Payton tried to deny that there was even an issue during their postgame news conferences, which came across with the same legitimacy Cheap Jerseys With Numbers as answers at a White House press briefing.

“There’s no conflict,” said Peterson, who also took to Cheap Jonathan Toews Jerseys Twitter trying to downplay the matter. “Let’s not try to spin it like there is.”

The Texans should keep playing Deshaun Watson

When Deshaun Watson wasn’t the first quarterback picked in April’s NFL draft, I thought that was weird. So did every other college football fan, along with most of the media members who cover that sport every day. Watson was the best player in Clemson history, and he almost destroyed the Alabama Death Star in 2015’s national title game before he finished that job in a rematch a year later. Not only was a bad word never spoken about Watson. His teammates advocated for him relentlessly, and his head coach said that passing on him would be akin to passing on Michael Jordan.

I’m not an NFL talent evaluator. People who are smarter than me figured that Mitchell Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes were worth selections before Watson’s at No. 12, where the Texans traded up to get him. There are good cases for those players. But I don’t think there’s much argument for Tom Savage being better than Watson in the short, medium, or long term for Houston. Their days on Sunday, when Watson replaced Savage for the second half of the Texans’ loss to the Jaguars, furthered that view.

11:33 p.m.: Turnover on downs. The Chiefs came to play. Kansas City stuffed New England on a fourth-and-inches for the second time in the game and took over on their own 40-yard line with 12:29 left in the game.

11:26 p.m.: Touchdown. So, the Chiefs have themselves a player in rookie running back Kareem Hunt. And they still have themselves a solid quarterback in Alex Smith. The duo connected on a 78-yard touchdown pass at the beginning of the fourth quarter to give Kansas City the lead. 28-27, Chiefs.

11:22 p.m.: End of third quarter. The Patriots held a Cheap Ireland Jerseys 340-293 total yards advantage over the Chiefs entering the Cheap Jerseys And Snapbacks final 15-minute period.

2017 NFL season preview: Packers still class of NFC North

The Packers got within one game of the Super Bowl last season and should again be a championship contender.

The signing of free agents Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks gives Green Bay a dangerous tight ends group to go with Richard Rodgers. The Packers also used their first four draft picks on defensive players and selected three running backs late to add depth behind converted receiver Ty Montgomery.

What places the Packers head and shoulders above everyone else in the division is that they have the best quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, who led the NFL last season with 40 touchdown passes.

Brady said the Patriots need to change their attitude and create a better sense of urgency.

“We’ve got to dig a lot deeper than we did tonight,” Brady said following Thursday’s game.

The Patriots are not out of the Super Bowl talk, but mounting injuries will be tough to overcome. Brady was not sharp Thursday, but is just a season removed from a Super Bowl MVP performance and the Patriots still have Bill Belichick running at the helm.

“We didn’t do much to deserve to win,” Belichick said following the loss. “We’ve got a lot of work to do. That’s pretty obvious. We have to improve just about Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys everything. We just weren’t competitive enough.”

The Patriots have been here before and bounced back to win Cheap Cycling Jerseys a Super Bowl. If they do get there, they just might have to go through the Chiefs.

The Vikings sure aren’t going to ask Sam Bradford to throw it downfield.

After all of the injury concerns in the preseason, the Lions are surprisingly healthy entering Week 1. The two biggest concerns are tight end Eric Ebron and defensive end Ezekiel Ansah. Neither played in the preseason but both seem on track to appear in Week 1. How Detroit handles their snaps is a key — particularly for Ansah — but the Lions seem as if like they’ll have a full complement of players for the Cardinals.

It has already been determined that starters Andrew Luck (shoulder), Vontae Davis (groin) and Ryan Kelly (foot) will not play against the Rams. Chester Rogers, who spent most of training camp as the third receiver, continues to remain out because of a hamstring injury he suffered late in the preseason. There was some thought that he would practice Wednesday, but he was listed on the team’s injury report as “did not practice,” which reduces the odds of him playing against the Rams.

Running back Leonard Fournette (foot), wide receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) and quarterback Blake Bortles (wrist) practiced Wednesday and are expected to play Sunday, but things aren’t so clear when it comes to running back T.J. Yeldon (hamstring). He would be a big loss, too. Not so much because of his work in the run game — he’s behind Fournette and Chris Ivory — but his work as a pass-protector. He is by far the Jaguars’ best pass-blocker among the backs. With the struggles of the offensive line and the fact that J.J. Watt, Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney are coming, not having Yeldon would be a serious Cheap Basketball Jerseys blow. It doesn’t look good at this point, though he still has a chance to play but certainly would be limited.

Cook can run, can catch and can handle whatever he needs to Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys handle, and the offseason injury to Latavius Murray means Cook has basically been working as the starter since he got there. Which rookie RB do you like? There are a lot to choose from this season.

It doesn’t matter how badly Irving wants to go to New York.

Only three players in the NBA can choose their fate: LeBron, Carmelo Anthony, and Dirk Nowitzki. The remaining 500 players are not fortunate enough to hold a no-trade clause rarely get to determine where they end up in a trade.

The fact remains New York doesn’t have the assets Cleveland — or anyone else for that matter — would want in return for a player of value. Yes, Anthony and LeBron are close friends, but Melo has his sights set on Houston. That could change, but for now, the Knicks’ star doesn’t want to join up and chase a ring with the Cavaliers.

As long as Anthony holds that position, New York has little to nothing to offer for Irving. The Knicks aren’t trading Kristaps Porzingis for Irving, whose contract expires in two years. You don’t need a WojBomb to figure that out. And aside from Tim Hardaway, rookie Frank Ntilikina — who didn’t play in Summer League — second-rounder Damyean Dotson, and second-year guard Ron Baker, the Knicks’ roster leaves much to be desired.

Cleveland isn’t going to trade Irving unless it’s on their terms. Moving him to New York doesn’t make any sense, at least not at the moment.

The Celtics have 10 first-round NBA draft picks in the next 3 years. Here’s how they got them

Let’s say the Grizzlies fall into a slump or run into the injury bug for the second time in three years. Their core is already old and isn’t getting any better. Zach Randolph Cheap Infant Jerseys is out the door already, and Tony Allen isn’t far behind.

Why not jump-start your rebuild by getting your first-round Cheap Jackie Robinson Jerseys pick back and maybe taking a prospect or two in the process? It makes sense for both sides if things start to go south in Memphis.

Durant’s cap hold was $31.8 million.

If Iguodala would have left, that number would’ve dropped to $109.7. Curry obviously got a raise, but the Warriors would leave his small cap hold ($18.2 million) on the books until the last minute and finalize his deal at the end. Shaun Livingston’s first-year salary on his new deal is about $3 million less than his cap hold, so the Warriors could have gotten down to $106.7 million by putting pen to paper first. Renounce the rights to Zaza Pachulia, Matt Barnes, David West, and Ian Clark, and that gets the Warriors down to about the cap level, once you add in small holds for any incomplete roster spot under 12.

Durant’s cap hold was $31.8 million. As soon as he officially signed his new deal, his actual salary would have replaced his hold on the Warriors’ books.

If Durant were to take the $25 million he ultimately took with Iguodala, then Gay could have slotted in with a starting salary in the $6-7 million range. But Durant would have been willing to sacrifice more, though, perhaps even enough to get Gay up to eight figures. If that were the case, Durant would have needed to sign for just $20 million next year to fit Gay in at a reasonable number.

The Heat can still go after another big-name free agent this summer. There is rumored interest between Miami and unrestricted scorer Rudy Gay, though no official reports have confirmed as much.

If the Heat can’t add a star, their best bet is to bring back the Cheap Girls Softball Jerseys group that almost pulled off the impossible. Miami started the season 11-30 before a 30-11 run brought the team to .500 for the season. The Heat didn’t make the playoffs, finishing in ninth place after tying with the Cheap Full Dye Softball Jerseys Chicago Bulls, who held the series tiebreaker, 2-1.
