Six weeks of success Jeff Locke Super Bowl LI Jersey , some of it relative, do not provide a harbinger for the rest of the NFL season.

Nonetheless, it’s necessary to praise the work of the Eagles, Panthers, Rams, Texans, Saints and Jets. For now, they are for real.

Who expected that?

Article continues below ...
In the case of the Jets (3-3), that doesn’t mean they are contenders for a playoff berth, possibly not even for a winning season. A look at their roster and offseason moves made folks wonder if Gang Green was about to tank the season to get a high enough draft choice to find their franchise quarterback.

Instead Deadrin Senat Jersey Elite , after opening with two defeats they won three in a row and, perhaps most impressively, might have been a strange officiating reversal away from knocking off New England on Sunday and taking sole possession of the AFC East lead. They are an example of bold and passionate overachievement, something any sports fan can appreciate.

”We’re just going to build off the game,” cornerback Buster Skrine said of the 24-17 loss. ”We lost the game. We give them all the credit. We’re just going to build off it. Nobody’s hanging their head.

”We’re a confident team and we have good team chemistry. We stuck together that whole game despite what was going on in the second half. We grew as a team.”

The chances of the other teams that so far have proved themselves beyond expectations certainly have grown. Here’s who and why:

EAGLES (5-1)

Despite some key injuries – yes, everyone seems to have those – Philadelphia has been, well, phantastic. This is an opportunistic bunch gaining momentum weekly. Already 2-0 in the NFC East, the Eagles’ only loss was at Kansas City. No sin there.

Carson Wentz appears to be maturing week by week; some believe he is the best of the growing group of young quarterbacks in the NFL. The defense makes big plays, specials teams are as good as anyone’s Wholesale Troy Niklas Jersey , and the coaching is spot-on. Everyone seems to fit Doug Pederson’s system – coincidentally a similar scheme to what Andy Reid often used and often was criticized for in tough Philly.


Yes, they fell to Philadelphia and have lost twice at home, but we can dismiss that because road teams have won a majority of games this season and Carolina is 3-0 in away contests. These are not the blow-your-doors-off Panthers of 2015 who nearly went unbeaten through the regular season. They are more inconsistent than those NFC champions.

What they are is resilient, something they’ve learned well from two-time Coach of the Year Ron Rivera, who must be in consideration for another of those awards should the Panthers keep this up, especially in their rugged division.

Cam Newton lost his best target, tight end Greg Olsen, then has helped elevate the play of others (rookie Christian McCaffrey, Devin Funchess) to make up for it. Carolina has two supreme playmakers in LB Luke Kuechly and sackmaster Julius Peppers anchoring the best defense in the NFC South.

RAMS (4-2)

Other than the Jets, the revival of the Rams through six weeks is the most surprising. Then again Da'Ron Payne Super Bowl LI Jersey , the combination of a new coach – Sean McVay, the youngest head coach in league history at 31 – working with a top overall draft pick in quarterback Jared Goff has been a revelation. Add in a standout runner in Todd Gurley and a ruggedly physical defense, and suddenly this relocated group might have some cachet in L.A.

”Our guys just embrace that mentality where you come into a stadium and they have this breakdown of, `We’re all we got. We’re all we need,”’ McVay said. ”These players are mentality tough. That’s becoming the identity that you hear us talk about all the time.”

TEXANS (3-3)

Take away the best defensive player in football – J.J. Watt might be the best player in the NFL regardless of position – and two of his sidekicks, Whitney Mercilus and the suspended Brian Cushing – and what do you get?

Looks like a contender in the mediocre AFC South, that’s what. By far, Houston has displayed the most gumption in that division.

The Texans are doing it with offense, thanks to sensational, record-setting rookie QB Deshaun Watson. All DeAndre Hopkins needed to become an elite receiving threat was a quality passer. He now has it Tre'Quan Smith Jersey Elite , and that could be the difference in their sector.

SAINTS (3-2)

When they lost their first two games with a spotty defense, the Saints appeared ready for another losing record, perhaps enough to cost coach Sean Payton his job. Look at them now.

They’ve won three in a row with their dynamic offense rekindled as Drew Brees finds more and more weapons to throw to. The running game with Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara is strong.

And on Sunday, New Orleans scored on three turnovers in sprinting far ahead of Detroit, then hanging on. Yes, these Saints can decide games with their defense at times, too.

Should this continue, it will make for quite a race in the NFC South.

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars heard the chatter Richard Rodgers Jersey Elite , read the tweets and Instagram posts. And they got a little confused.

Why were the Pittsburgh Steelers talking about the New England Patriots? Didn’t they have to face the Jaguars first before reaching a rematch with the Super Bowl champions?

”I don’t know if they misread the schedule or didn’t play us this week, but they didn’t acknowledge us at all,” Jacksonville linebacker Myles Jack said. ”And we didn’t take that too kindly.”

Article continues below ...
Not at all. That shouldn’t be a problem going forward.

The Jaguars, yes the Jaguars, have the NFL’s full attention now. A trip to Foxborough on the horizon, too.

Dominant at the start and resilient at the finish, Jacksonville stunned the Steelers 45-42 on Sunday to advance to the AFC title game for the third time in franchise history and maybe, finally Wholesale Darius Leonard Jersey , earn a bit of respect.

Leonard Fournette ran for 109 yards and three scores . Embattled quarterback Blake Bortles added 214 yards passing and a pivotal fourth-quarter touchdown as the third-seeded Jaguars (12-6) beat the second-seeded Steelers (13-4) at Heinz Field for the second time in three months.

The victory in October served notice Jacksonville was ready to put a decade of losing firmly behind. This one sent an even bigger message: overlook the Jaguars at your own peril, something Pittsburgh appeared to do in the run-up. Coach Mike Tomlin hinted at facing the Patriots twice back in December. Running back Le’Veon Bell posted on Twitter about the pair of “round 2s” the Steelers will face in coming weeks.

Turns out, one rematch is all the Steelers will get.

”We knew we had this team’s number,” Jacksonville safety Barry Church said. ”All we did was feed on the fuel that everybody was providing, the media, everybody was talking about how they’re going to run through us, it’s not going to be like last (time). Blake Bortles this. Blake Bortles that. all he did was dominate their defense.”

A week removed from an ugly performance in a wild-card round win over Buffalo in which he passed for 87 yards and struggled with the easiest of throws, Bortles went 14 of 26 for a touchdown without an interception. He ran for 35 more and wasn’t sacked by a defense that led the NFL and set a franchise record with 55 during the season. Jacksonville’s 45 points tied the most ever allowed by the Steelers in the playoffs.

Not bad for an offense that at times simply appeared along for the ride as the NFL’s top defense carried the load.

”Blake Bortles has always been criticized Wholesale Cliff Avril Jersey ,” Fournette said. ”It is different now. He has guys that have his back, especially me.”

Certainly looked it as Fournette scored two first-quarter touchdowns. The Jaguars built a 21-point lead and responded whenever the Steelers rallied to get within one score.

”The guys played with confidence all day long,” Bortles said. ”Obviously, what they have on their side of the ball, it’s a good team. We know they got a good offense. We knew we were going to have to be efficient, hold on to the ball for a little bit, so we did it.”

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 469 yards and set a franchise record with five touchdown passes, but was also intercepted once and had a fumble returned for a score. All-Pro Antonio Brown caught seven passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns in his return from a left calf injury. Bell had 155 yards of total offense and two scores.

But Pittsburgh’s vaunted ”Killer Bs” couldn’t keep pace with Jacksonville Adrian Clayborn Jersey Elite , one of four NFL franchises to never make the Super Bowl.

”It’s disheartening,” Brown said. ”I thought we had the right group of guys.”

The Jaguars dominated the Steelers on Oct. 8, winning by three touchdowns in a performance so overwhelming Roethlisberger only half-jokingly wondered aloud whether he still had ”it’ after throwing a career-high five picks.

Roethlisberger and his teammates left little doubt they hoped for a rematch, though Jacksonville cornerback A.J. Bouye cautioned Pittsburgh to be careful what it wished for. The Jaguars hardly appeared intimidated by the 18-degree chill or trying to earn their first road playoff win in a decade.

”I’m sure there will still be tons of people that are going to disapprove and talk negative or hate or do whatever they want,” Bortles said. ”But we get to keep playing and we get an opportunity to play in Foxborough next week for another week. Just honored to be able to do this especially with this group of guys.”

”It’s been an awesome year. Just want to keep it going.”


Pittsburgh rolled up 545 yards of offense, but it’s 2 yards the Steelers didn’t get that helped send them into an offseason filled with questions.

Twice Pittsburgh had fourth-and-1 in Jacksonville territory. Twice the Steelers did something other than have the 6-foot-5 Roethlisberger sneak. Pittsburgh ran wide in the first quarter and Bell was stuffed for a 4-yard loss. The Jaguars responded immediately by going 75 yards in 11 plays, the final one a 4-yard sprint by T.J. Yeldon that put them up 21-0.

The Steelers were down a touchdown early in the fourth quarter and had fourth-and-inches at the Jacksonville 39. Roethlisberger checked at the line of scrimmage, faked a handoff to Bell and instead threw incomplete to diving rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster .

”It’s been a while since I’ve run a quarterback sneak Kemoko Turay Jersey Elite , I’m for it,” said Roethlisberger, . Authentic Womens Dallas Goedert Jersey , Authentic Womens Daryl Worley Jersey , Authentic Womens Michael Dickson Jersey , Authentic Womens Deadrin Senat Jersey ,

AIR FORCE ACADEMY Minkah Fitzpatrick Super Bowl LI Jersey , Colo. (AP) The tunnel leading down to the Falcon Stadium football field is dotted with warnings that a ”lack of acclimation to altitudes above 6,000 feet has proven to cause serious illness.”

Just before reaching the field, there’s an overhang with a sign that warns about a ”lack of oxygen ” at 6,621 feet above sea level.

Meant more for intimidation than information, the signs still serve as a stark reminder of the Rocky Mountain’s lung-piercing thin air. Which is exactly why Bill Belichick decided to keep his team in Colorado after the Patriots (7-2) destroyed the Broncos 41-16 Sunday night.

Article continues below ...
Up next for Tom Brady & Co. is a trip to Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium (elevation 7,200 feet) to face the Oakland Raiders (4-5) on Sunday. So, rather than head home, the Patriots bused an hour south to train at altitude this week.

”You can feel it for sure,” said tight end Rob Gronkowski, noting his skin was dry. ”A lot of people are getting their nose super dry, their mouth super dry. So Wholesale Robert Griffin III Jersey , I’m just glad to be here to prepare for what Mexico City will be, at the same altitude. So, it’s good training and I’m glad we’re doing it.”

Belichick also brought his team to the Academy for its attitude.

They heard about survival training from cadets who had to hunt wildlife in the mountains; they listened to Falcons football coach Troy Calhoun talk about molding the next generation of military leaders; and they got to see paratroopers cap off Wednesday’s workout on the Falcons practice fields.

”Which was super cool,” Gronkowski said.

Belichick was first introduced to military and football formations as a youngster at the Naval Academy, where his father, Steve, had a 33-year run as a football coach and scout for the Midshipmen.

”I have a lot of respect for all the service academies – but Navy first,” Belichick said. ”But a lot of respect here. These guys do a great job. … This is a great, great institution. The discipline, the leadership they have here. I hope some of it rubs off on me this week.”

Gronkowski said this week has been a training camp-like bonding experience for the Patriots, who have toured some of the sites on the sprawling mountainous installation.

”It’s good to have an understanding of where you are and what happens at an institution like the Air Force Academy Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey ,” Belichick said. ”We only have one guy that can really relate to that.”

That’s long snapper Joe Cardona, who attended the Naval Academy and knows firsthand the rigors of a military institution.

This week he’s harkening back to his college days as the Patriots bond with one another.

”Being together as a team is great. You’re surrounded by each other and it’s great for building the team, and I can’t think of a better way to do it than at the Air Force Academy,” Cardona said. ”Well, maybe at the Naval Academy. But it’s great to be here.”

Even in the thin air.

”I would be remiss to say I play enough plays to really have my lungs burning,” Cardona said, ”but there were a few times in practice that I had to breathe a little deeper, try to get the oxygen in.”

Even though he knows all about the effects of altitude from his days as Denver’s defensive coordinator, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio is taking the opposite approach. He’s keeping his team at sea level this week just as he did last season in the lead-up to Oakland’s game against Houston at Azteca Stadium, which the Raiders won 27-20.

”We’re going in as late as possible, and they’re spending the week training at altitude in Colorado Mike White Jersey Elite ,” Del Rio said. ”So, two contrasting approaches to it, and we’ll see how it works out. We did this last year. We went the day before like we’re doing this year and that seemed to work for us. I know that there are several theories out there in terms of how you best handle the altitude and we just do the best we can to prepare our squads, and then we go compete.”

Tom Brady’s usual Wednesday news conference was pushed back to Friday, but he’s been looking forward to this Mexico trip since the Super Bowl.

”It will be a great experience for our team,” Brady said when word got out last winter that the Patriots would head south of the border this year. ”I’ve always enjoyed it. For our team, we’ve gone to London (twice), and I’ve loved those experiences. They’ve been great bonding trips for our team.”

The Patriots played an exhibition game in Mexico City in 1998, beating Dallas 21-3.

”There’s a lot of excitement down there, and they love football,” Brady said. ”We want to go down there and put on a great show.”

The only college stadium that’s higher than Falcon Field is Wyoming’s War Memorial Stadium Authentic Troy Apke Jersey , which is 7,215 feet above sea level.

For one Patriots player, this is nothing, however.

Tackle Nate Solder grew up in Leadville, Colorado, which is 10,152 feet above sea level.

GREEN BAY Wholesale Donte Jackson Jersey , Wis. (AP) It has been a little quieter than normal in the Green Bay Packers’ locker room this week.

The perennial NFC contenders are out of the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and quarterback Aaron Rodgers is done for the season.

It will be up to backup Brett Hundley to help provide a spark over the season’s closing weeks, starting with the home finale Saturday night against the Minnesota Vikings.

Article continues below ...
”Obviously we want to make the playoffs … we want to try to get an opportunity to win a Super Bowl. This year, we came up short,” Hundley said after practice Wednesday.

”No matter the opportunity we’re still here and we’re still blessed to be able to play. This isn’t a game we’re just going to roll over.”

The Packers (7-7) placed Rodgers on season-ending injured reserve on Tuesday to pave the way for Hundley’s return as the starter. The third-year quarterback went 3-4 while Rodgers recovered from a broken right collarbone.

Rodgers returned for one game, throwing for three touchdowns and three interceptions in a 31-24 loss last week to Carolina that helped seal the Packers’ fate.

Coach Mike McCarthy has said that while Rodgers didn’t suffer a setback Authentic Tanner Lee Jersey , the move was made in the best interest of their franchise quarterback.

Now Hundley gets two more weeks to showcase his skills to other teams who might be interested in trading for a player who has improved gradually during the season.

Hundley, though, said his focus is on the present. He’s not looking at the next two weeks as a potential audition.

”There’s no point to look or worry about what’s going to happen in the future because if you do that, you miss what’s happening now,” Hundley said.

”For me Nate Solder Jersey Elite , I’m just trying to make the most of this opportunity, win this game and worry about next week after this.”

He’s looking to build on a promising three previous starts, a span in which he’s had a quarterback rating of 102.9 with six touchdowns and one interception.

He helped lead the Packers to back-to-back overtime wins over Tampa Bay and Cleveland, before getting a chance to watch Rodgers again from the sideline last week at Carolina.

”The ideal way to learn is to play. So I’m hoping he builds off a lot of the good things he established the last couple games,” McCarthy said.

Rodgers is essentially reduced to being an unofficial assistant coach. The two-time NFL MVP has been helpful in meetings. He has shown some emotion in the past on the sideline Wholesale Tyquan Lewis Jersey , especially in the waning minutes of the overtime win over the Browns.

The mood is in contrast to the quiet in the locker room earlier in the week. Players are typically chatty on the Monday after a win, and a little more subdued after a loss.

”It’s definitely not chatty, that’s for sure. Everybody is disappointed at the beginning of the week, but we really haven’t had a lot of time to dwell on it,” McCarthy said.

”We corrected the Carolina game when we got back together Derrick Nnadi Jersey Elite , but we’re full strength and getting ready for Minnesota and everybody understands we’re playing for something different right now.”

NOTES: WR Davante Adams (concussion) did not practice after getting knocked out of the Panthers game following blindside hit by linebacker Thomas Davis . ”He’s irritated, he’s angry. He wants to be out there. He’s our best perimeter player and he was knocked out of the game at a critical time … He’s irritated that he’s in this spot,” McCarthy said. … G Jahri Evans (knee), along with LBs Nick Perry (ankle/shoulder) and Clay Matthews (hamstring) also missed practice. … CB Davon House (shoulder/back) was limited in practice.

TORONTO (AP) Frederik Andersen could sense this was going to be a low-scoring game without many chances. He was right – and he was sharp when it counted.

Andersen made 40 saves and James van Riemsdyk scored the only goal as the surging Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Florida Panthers 1-0 on Tuesday night for their seventh consecutive victory at home.

”These are always fun Adidas Brock Boeser Jersey ,” Andersen said. ”The game was tough from the beginning. I think the ice was a little tough.”

Article continues below ...
The shutout was Andersen’s career-best fifth of the season. The 28-year-old goalie reached 30 wins for the third time.

Andersen also improved to 7-0-2 with a 1.82 goals-against average, a .952 save percentage and two shutouts this season when facing 40 or more shots.

Opponents are taking note of his elevated game.

”Especially this year, he’s really taken his game to another level,” Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo said after Tuesday’s morning skate. ”Obviously in the top tier of goaltenders in the league now, and he’s giving his team a chance to win every night.”

Toronto (37-20-5) has won 11 of 12 overall and improved to 14-4-2 since Jan. 4.

The Panthers (26-25-6) have dropped back-to-back games after opening their five-game road trip with three straight wins. Florida entered the night six points out of a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Florida threatened in the third with Luongo pulled for an extra attacker Wholesale Anthony Averett Jersey , but Andersen managed to thwart the Panthers’ best chance – a point shot from Keith Yandle with 23 seconds remaining.

Luongo stopped 30 shots in the loss.

”I thought both goaltenders were really hot tonight,” said Jonathan Huberdeau. ”I think in the third we had some pressure, we got a lot of chances, but it didn’t go in. It’s a tough loss.”

Andersen is the fifth Maple Leafs goaltender to register multiple shutouts when making at least 40 saves since 1955-56 when the NHL began counting shots on goal as an official statistic.

”I think a huge part of it is fitness,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. ”He did a real nice job this summer and so he’s just building off of confidence. I think last year Bryce Petty Super Bowl LI Jersey , if I’m not mistaken, was the first time he’s ever really been the starter.

”So, you go through that and you get comfortable and you get comfortable with your teammates and it just goes from there.”

With 28 seconds left in the first period, van Riemsdyk beat Luongo between the legs with a shot from the faceoff dot for his 25th goal of the season. Jake Gardiner had an assist for his 200th NHL point.

”In a lot of those situations, there’s not a lot of time so you just want to try to get it off as quick as you can Justin Reid Jersey Elite ,” van Riemsdyk said. ”To say I was shooting there would probably be a lie. I was just trying to throw it on the net and get it there quick and it went in, thankfully.”

Patrick Marleau nearly made it a two-goal game 1:02 into the third by finishing off a 2-on-1 feed from Mitch Marner, but couldn’t beat the right pad of Luongo.

With 2:40 remaining, Leo Komarov’s shot beat Luongo but rang off the post.

The Panthers defeated the Maple Leafs 2-1 in a shootout on Nov. 22 in the only previous meeting between the teams this season. Toronto visits Florida on Feb. 27.

NOTES: The Maple Leafs traded forward Eric Fehr to San Jose for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick. The move drops Toronto to 48 contracts and gives general manager Lou Lamoriello added flexibility before next week’s trade deadline. . Marleau (1,555) passed Jarome Iginla for 12th place on the NHL’s career list for games played. . Yandle played in his 800th career game. The 31-year-old defenseman owns the NHL’s longest active streak with 689 consecutive games played.


Panthers: Host the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.

Maple Leafs: Continue their three-game homestand Thursday night against the New York Islanders.

GLENDALE Avonte Maddox Jersey Elite , Ariz. — The Arizona Coyotes are eager to see Darcy Kuemper in goal for them for the first time because after all, they think he’s the kind of player they can build around for the future.

“He’s at that age where, at 27, where is he going to go with this?” coach Rick Tocchet said in advance of Kuemper’s start against the Vancouver Canucks at Gila River Arena on Sunday night. “I think he’s a great goalie, from what I’ve seen of him this year.”

The question, too, is where does starting goaltender Antti Raanta go now that the Coyotes have added Kuemper in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings? Does Raanta go back to being the Coyotes’ starter next season or — as a free agent — does he find a second new NHL home in as many seasons?

Article continues below ...
Coyotes general manager John Chayka said the team will try to re-sign Raanta Dorance Armstrong Jr. Super Bowl LI Jersey , who has had several stretches of extended strong play this season despite having a succession of early season injuries that helped doom the Coyotes (18-33-10) to a terrible start.

Raanta was acquired from the New York Rangers last year after longtime starting goaltender Mike Smith was dealt to Calgary.

Now, the final quarter of the season may give the Coyotes an idea of what direction they’ll want to go in net next season. Kuemper already has signed a two-year contract extension worth about $1.4 million per season, meaning the Coyotes must commit considerable salary cap dollars to a single position if they want to bring back Raanta.

“I’m very happy because (they’re) showing a lot of commitment to me and a lot of confidence in me,” said Kuemper, who was 10-1-3 with a 2.10 goals-against average with Los Angeles. “I’m glad to be here and glad to be here for a couple of more years. I’m excited to contribute to this up-and-coming team.”

After beating the Anaheim Ducks 2-0 on Saturday night, Raanta (13-15-6) has two shutouts in his last three starts and five wins in his last six decisions. His 26-save performance was a strong bounce back from a 5-2 loss to Calgary on Thursday night.

“Good goalies after a tough start want to get back in there,” Tocchet said. “Obviously Authentic James Daniels Jersey , he shut the door. He played great.”

Vancouver (23-31-7), which is ahead of only the Coyotes in the Pacific Division, has lost four of five and eight of 10 following a 6-3 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Friday.

The Canucks’ lack of consistency is beginning to frustrate coach Travis Green, who saw his team play two solid periods in Vegas — the first and third — only to unravel as the Golden Knights scored all three goals of the second period.

“It’s definitely frustrating. I’m not happy with the loss,” Green said. “With our team speed, we have to make sure we’re pushing the pace all the time. We looked fast for two periods, but for one period we didn’t.”

Still Wholesale Jordan Akins Jersey , left wing Daniel Sedin is seeing improvement as the NHL season begins to wind down — one that almost assuredly won’t include the Canucks in the playoffs.

“It’s one thing now (that goes wrong), not three or four,” Sedin said. “It’s easier to pinpoint and fix.”

Remarkably, the Canucks and Coyotes compete in the same division, yet they haven’t played all season. That’s about to change, with four meetings in the final 21 games, including March 7 in Vancouver.

Kuemper is expected to face Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom (16-20-0 Trent Brown Super Bowl LI Jersey , 2.76 goals-against average).

Vancouver, which is 13-8-0-5 at Gila River Arena, is led in scoring by forwards Brock Boeser (27 goals, 51 points) and Thomas Vanek (17 goals, 41 points).

Rookie center Clayton Keller (17 goals, 44 points) remains the only Coyotes player with more than 40 points. Defenseman Kevin Connauton has five goals in his last 11 games.

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Red Wings are bringing coach Jeff Blashill for a fourth season Adidas Jack Eichel Jersey , sticking with him while they rebuild after missing the postseason for the second year in a row.

”I’m big on experience,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said after announcing the decision on Tuesday.

Detroit extended its postseason streak to 25 years in 2016 during Blashill’s debut season as an NHL coach. The Red Wings have fallen short since then and are 104-105-37 in three seasons under Blashill, who won one playoff game two years ago. Holland Wholesale Richard Rodgers Jersey , who has been Detroit’s GM since 1997 and recently agreed to a two-year contract extension, decided to stay with Blashill as the Red Wings look for the right mix of youth and experience to get back in the mix in the Eastern Conference.

”I’m certainly glad to still be the coach of the Detroit Red Wings. It’s a job I love,” Blashill said. ”I’m excited about moving this franchise … where everybody wants it.”

The Detroit native will coach the U.S. team at the IIHF World Hockey Championship – for the second straight year – next month in Denmark.

The Red Wings hired Blashill in 2015 after Mike Babcock’s contract expired and the Toronto Maple Leafs gave him a $50 million Authentic Justin Jones Jersey , eight-year contract. Blashill was on Babcock’s bench in Detroit as an assistant during the 2011-12 season. He went on to coach the Grand Rapids Griffins, leading the Red Wings’ American Hockey League affiliate for three successful seasons. Blashill also led Western Michigan University for one season, helping the Broncos reach the CCHA championship game for the first time since 1986.

”He’s gotten better Wholesale Tremaine Edmunds Jersey ,” Detroit center Dylan Larkin said. ”That sounds different to say about a coach. He has become more mature. … He has a good grasp of the room.”

DENVER (AP) The Denver Broncos weren’t just bad on special teams. They were downright hurtful.

To themselves Authentic Ian Thomas Jersey , of course. To an official as well.

A mistake-filled night began with a muffed punt , included a 103-yard kickoff return, blocked punt, and getting a too-many-players-on-the-field penalty on fourth down to extend a New England drive. Even an umpire was run over – and had to leave the game – on a punt by the Broncos.

Article continues below ...
All told, Denver’s lapses on special teams added up to 24 points, which Tom Brady and the Patriots turned into a 41-16 blowout Sunday.

”How are you supposed to win against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots when you’re starting off 14-(3)?” lamented defensive end Derek Wolfe Akeem Spence Super Bowl LI Jersey , whose team dropped its fifth straight game. ”You can’t. You’re not going to win against a good team like that.”

The gaffes made things just that much easier for the Patriots against Von Miller and a stalwart Denver defense.

”It helps out tremendously and sparks us,” receiver Danny Amendola said. ”Hats off to the special teams.”

The night actually started just like Denver (3-6) scripted – forcing the Patriots (7-2) to punt on their opening possession.

It went horribly awry after that, with rookie returner Isaiah McKenzie bobbling a punt. New England recovered and cashed in on Rex Burkhead’s 14-yard TD catch.

”It puts us in a big hole. I put the blame all on me,” said McKenzie, who now has five fumbles this season. ”If I would’ve caught that first punt, did anything with it Jeff Locke Super Bowl LI Jersey , besides turn it over, then probably … things would’ve changed for us.”

There was plenty more blame to spread around.

Minutes later, Dion Lewis returned a kickoff 103 yards down the left sideline for a score. It’s tied for the third-longest return the Broncos have allowed.

”It just was bad, man,” special teamer/defensive back Jamal Carter said. ”Once we made one mistake it just kept going on like a domino effect.”

The next domino to fall was when Burkhead blocked a Riley Dixon punt in the second quarter. That led to a Stephen Gostkowski field goal to make it 20-6.

All season, Broncos special teams coach Brock Olivo has willingly accepted blame for blunders made by his blocking or coverage units. The performance Sunday will be hard to explain away.

”We can’t do those things Michael Gallup Super Bowl LI Jersey ,” Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. ”It’s all three phases that we have to look at.”

This wasn’t a special teams error – just a scary moment. On a punt in the third quarter, Carter was blocking New England’s Trevor Reilly when Reilly rolled into the back of umpire Jeff Rice, whose legs were taken out from under him. Rice stayed down for several moments before walking to a cart to take him off the field.

”(Reilly) was trying to bull rush me and I kind of slung him. I didn’t know the ref was back there,” Carter explained. ”It was crazy.”

To close out a special teams night to forget, Denver was called for a 12th player on the field early in the fourth quarter on a New England punt. The play was so bizarre that linebacker Brandon Marshall actually was the one who called for a fair catch. The penalty gave New England a first down and Brady took advantage by throwing a short TD pass to James White .

”We have to be better on special teams,” cornerback Chris Harris said. ”They outplayed us in that area. When you play against Tom Brady Royce Freeman Jersey Elite , man, you can’t spot him anything. … He’s going to take advantage of our mistakes.”

Brady did at that, too.

”We did a good job staying balanced,” Brady said. ”Playing from ahead was really important all night. It’s hard to play this team when you’re behind and they can just tee off on the rushes. They’ve got very skilled pass rushers. Special teams played great and we just tried to hold up our end of the bargain.”

BOSTON (AP) Eight months after ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in prison Nick Nelson Jersey Elite , a new book by bestselling author James Patterson is reviving unanswered questions.

Patterson spoke with The Associated Press on Friday about what he calls ”the most fascinating, complicated and troubling crime story of our times.”

Hernandez, a former standout tight end for the New England Patriots, was found hanging by a bedsheet in his cell on April 19, hours before his ex-teammates were due to visit the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory. The 27-year-old athlete had been serving life without parole for a 2013 murder. Just days earlier Adidas Nikita Kucherov Jersey , he had been acquitted of a separate double murder.

Article continues below ...
After his death, Hernandez was diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease tied to head blows which can cause depression and violent mood swings.

Patterson’s book on the case, ”All-American Murder,” is set to be released Monday by Little Adidas Gabriel Landeskog Jersey , Brown and Company, and CBS is airing a companion ”48 Hours ” special Saturday night.

AP: Most of your work tends to be fiction. What drew you to this real-crime story?

Patterson: I don’t usually do nonfiction, but I was compelled to do this story. You can’t take your eyes off this guy because of all his gifts: his good looks, the smile, the beautiful fiancee Terrelle Pryor Sr. Super Bowl LI Jersey , the baby girl, the $40 million NFL contract. When I was in my teens, my family moved up near Boston, and I became a fan of the Patriots and the other Boston teams. I still am to some extent.

AP: Why do you think Hernandez killed himself if there was a chance – however small – of overturning his conviction and winning his freedom?

Patterson: Most people who suffer from brain damage do not become murderers. My take is if you take somebody with a psychopathic personality – somebody who enjoyed killing people – hit him in the head a few thousand times and add some PCP and weed, you have a nightmare. And there are a lot of suicides with CTE.

AP: What do you make of the rumors that Hernandez may have been gay or bisexual and had a prison lover?

Patterson: We never talked to anybody who said there was something to that. He was in his cell 22+ hours a day. He had virtually no contact with any prisoners. What could he do?

AP: Did Hernandez have some kind of jailhouse conversion? He wrote ”John 3:16” in ink on his forehead and in blood on a cell wall.

Patterson: He was clinging to this notion Wholesale B.J. Hill Jersey , real or imagined, that if he believed in Jesus he could be saved. But he was over the top with everything. His thinking was scrambled big-time.

AP: Why does this case captivate people so powerfully?

Patterson: This is the most dramatic and surprising murder mystery in the last 25 years – including O.J. (Simpson). The story is just stunning, from his days as a well-behaved kid in high school to his time at the University of Florida to the NFL. It’s the most amazing fall from grace imaginable.
