The Minnesota Vikings have won seven in a row, pushing their record to 9-2.

The Minnesota Vikings seized the top spot with their seventh win in a row, while the New Orleans Saints dropped one spot to No. 2 after losing to the Los Angeles Rams, 26-20, on Sunday. The next five teams held steady after Week 12.

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 its 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. A more detailed description of the method can be found in the Week 1 rankings.

Womens Phillip Danault Jersey And so a few things can go wrong with Cam Newton this season. If the Panthers stay on the same path, continue with a primarily vertical passing game but limit Newton’s rushing the way they did after the first Authentic Brandon Carr Jersey month of last year, I fear Newton won’t show much more consistency than he did in 2016. And last year, if you take away the fantasy points Newton accrued via his 359 rushing yards and five rushing TDs, he’d have finished between Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler on the fantasy rolls.

Absolutely. At least when it comes to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who roll into Heinz Field with one of the century’s beastliest defenses. Second in points allowed and better than anyone against the pass, this unit has the potential to make things challenging for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh counters with a juicy, third-ranked air attack that returns a healthy Antonio Brown to the lineup for the first time since before Christmas.

Too much has been made about Ben Roethlisberger’s five-pick meltdown in Week 5, when Jacksonville rode into Pittsburgh and dropped a 30-9 death-hammer. That game is ancient history — We’ve evolved since then, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said — and he’s right. Still, this Jaguars defense has the personnel to give Pittsburgh’s offense fits behind a star-studded cast headlined by havoc-wreaking MVP candidate Calais Campbell and a pair of star cornerbacks in Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.

Prescott had only trailed by double-digits once in his NFL career, when the Cowboys fell behind the Packers 21-3 in the divisional round last year.

On Sunday, the Cowboys trailed by 25 points, which turned out to be the final margin, early in the fourth quarter.

Prescott had thrown multiple interceptions in a game only once, and in fact, Prescott became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw less than five interceptions in his first 500 pass attempts. But he still threw two picks, one of them Aaron Ripkowski Jersey through the hands of Dez Bryant, his best wide receiver.

Prescott may have to direct the Dallas offense without Elliott, depending how the case regarding his six-game suspension and appeal winds its way through the court system this week. The Cowboys will play at Arizona, an opponent with a strong pass rush, on Monday night.

There’s no alarming takeaway from Prescott or the Cowboys’ performance in Denver, as bad as it was. There are going to be days like Sunday in the NFL, and Prescott had one. It was notable only because it had never happened before.

Asked if Sunday’s playoff matchup with his old team made him reflect on how it all ended in Buffalo, Dareus said: I don’t feel like it shows anyone anything about me. It just shows me about what decisions they already make with their organization, who they let make decisions with the organization.

You want to get rid of one of the best players in the league — easily — because you want a sixth-round pick? Or you just want to get me out that bad? All right. The things y’all portrayed in the news and media — really? It was nothing like that, but OK. We all know this is a business. They’ve got control of what they want to put out and what they don’t. It is what it is. I’m not here to fight it.

In Jacksonville, teammate Calais Campbell said, Dareus has been on point. Very, very consistent. Brings a lot of energy, brings a lot of confidence, a lot of swagger. Dareus has contributed on one of the NFL’s top defenses, recording 20 tackles (18 solo) and a sack in nine games (one start). He was heard often this week laughing and joking around with teammates and reporters.

Kirk Cousins is nothing ‘special’, says former Redskins GM Scot McCloughan

The future of Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is a hot topic around the NFL, especially when it comes to the Broncos, who are looking for an upgrade at quarterback.

Most of the conversations have been positive as to how Cousins could help rebuild a franchise, however the opinion of former Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan might come as a surprise.

He’s talented. Talent is good at quarterback in the NFL. He’s won games. I know his record overall is not over .500. I know he has not won a playoff game. But he’s competitive, McCloughan said. He works his tail off. He’s so methodical. Every day he has planned out. He’s always in the building, he’s always watching tape, he’s always talking to coaches, he was talking to me.

From the standpoint of the tangibles, they’re excellent. You just need to have some talent around him because you don’t want him to be throwing the ball 35 to 40 times to win the game. You want to have a running game, have a good defense, good [special] teams, and then let him do what he does.

So far, the playoffs have been quite unpredictable. Half of the games have been won by the underdog. How will the conference championship games play out this weekend? AccuScore has simulated each game 10,000 times to predict the probabilities of reaching Super Bowl 52. Below are the probabilities to win each game Sunday.

The win probability for the Minnesota Vikings is 59 percent based on AccuScore simulations, and this is very much aligned with Las Vegas betting odds (Vikings -3.5).

Currently, the Patriots have the highest Super Bowl win probability at 46.6 percent. This is not presenting too much value for bettors, but the longest shot the Jaguars with only an 11.6-percent probability to win the Super Bowl is a value bet for those looking to cash out big. Currently, you would be getting your money back 10 times if the Jaguars win it all. patriots_146_97c00b5d072ee0ae-180x180

If you’re a Jacksonville Jaguars or Philadelphia Eagles fan and just so happen to buy into NFL conspiracies

Two days before the conference championship games kick off, the NFL’s official Facebook page has already started advertising for Super Bowl LII — between the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings.
Game Kids Mohamed Sanu Jersey Men's Nike Green Bay Packers #7 Brett Hundley Elite Green Team Color NFL Jersey
Yeah it will. Brady wasn’t performing open-heart surgery guys. Just ask Bill Belichick. The Pats quarterback got roughly 10 stitches — although there’s now a rumor Colton Parayko Authentic Jersey it was 12, which would be very on brand of TB12 — in his hand after a collision with Rex Burkhead in practice. Brady has two weeks to heal his hand and get ready, and let’s not pretend like it affected him during the win over the Jaguars. The Patriots defense early on against Jacksonville, not Brady, was the problem. Brady was dynamic down the stretch and he will be fine.

I see you just tuned into the NFL on Sunday. No he was not! In fact, he wasn’t even the Eagles starting quarterback to begin the season. That was Carson Wentz, who probably would have won MVP, except he tore his ACL late in the year (Brady is going to win now). Foles nearly quit football a few years ago, but came back to Philly (where he was drafted), backed up Wentz and stepped in late in the season. He just happened to have the game of his life on Sunday against the Vikings defense, throwing for 352 yards and three touchdowns.

For some reason, the Titans gave DeMarco Murray the majority of the touches during the regular season despite Henry’s superior production. Tennessee couldn’t do that in the final two weeks after Murray suffered a knee injury, and it certainly doesn’t appear to be a problem that Henry is the one taking all the carries now.

The Heisman Trophy winner ran through a Kansas City defense that struggled for most of the season, and he put the game on ice with a couple more first downs in the last three minutes that kept the Chiefs from getting another offensive possession.

If the Titans are going to knock off one of the AFC powers in the Divisional Round, they’ll need to lean on Henry again.

Even at 38 years old, even with snow falling at Lambeau Field, Favre still had some playoff magic in him. That magic included, on a third-and-8 when the game was still in question, a stumbling Favre underhanding a pass to Donald Lee for a first-down conversion.

The former Packers linebacker spent four seasons as the Chiefs general manager, building a roster that would reach the playoffs in three of his four seasons at the helm. While Kansas City’s lack of postseason success would lead to the two sides parting ways this June (after he set the nucleus of another AFC West-winning roster), just getting to the playoffs would be a major step forward for Cleveland.

Cam Newton left the Panthers’ game against the Saints after taking a hit in the fourth quarter.

wings_557He was taken to the medical tent as Derek Anderson entered the game.

Newton appeared to escape the grasp of Tyeler Davison, but wasn’t able to get away when David Onyemata came running in to finish the play. Newton never saw him coming, took a vicious hit to the head, and remained on the ground.

In the NFL’s revised concussion protocol, the Panthers might not have complied with one of the new rules. The one they possibly broke involves what happened to Newton as he was leaving the field:

So where the Panthers wanted to work on reprogramming Newton, they couldn’t. And when they wanted to build timing between him and new left tackle Matt Kalil, or him and rookie Christian McCaffrey—the Swiss Army knife drafted to provide those easy completions-turned-big gains—they didn’t always get the reps they needed for it.

That explained why Newton was, in the staff’s eyes, uneven through the first four weeks of the season. It should also illustrate why the New England game was his breakthrough—that was the first week he threw in full during all three days of practice, and led to Newton’s freakish ability flashing again. Against the Patriots, he uncorked one throw from the left hashmark to the right sideline that made Rivera say, as he recalls, O.K., I like what I just saw. Then, against the Lions last week, there was a 31-yard bucket throw to Kelvin Benjamin for a touchdown, made flat-footed, that had Rivera thinking, He’s almost there, he’s almost all the way back.

And they should be singing “Hakuna Matata” after their major turnaround this season. This Rams team was a blast. It’s a bummer they got bounced from the playoffs early, but the future couldn’t be brighter in LA. Unless something goes horribly wrong, they should right back here in 2018.

With 4:14 left, and facing a third-and-12, Trubisky took a snap from the shotgun.

The numbers tell you part of the story: Trubisky has completed 70 percent of his throws for 354 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions and 112.7 passer rating. The rest may be harder to see, but it’s coming. In May, Trubisky had to learn to take a snap from center, and spit out a playcall in the huddle, since those were things he’d never been asked to do before. Now? He’s showing the ability he did at North Carolina to go through progressions, and maintain great accuracy. And he’s made great progress in the areas where he’s needed to grow—even showing proficiency in running the offense from the line of scrimmage, which he was never asked to do in college.

2018 NFL Draft order: Picks 1-28 set after divisional playoff games

The Browns clinched the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft on Christmas Eve. They secured the fourth overall pick on New Year’s Eve.
Boomer Esiason Women's Limited Pink Jersey: Nike NFL Cincinnati Bengals Rush Fashion #7
The Colts did the Browns a favor in Week 17 of the regular season with their 22-13 win over the Texans (4-12). Thanks to a draft-day trade, the Browns own the Texans’ first-round pick, which is fourth overall after they lost to the Colts. That trade allowed the Texans to move up from 25th to 12th to select former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson. The Browns then took Jabrill Peppers with the 25th pick.

Lions-Ravens, second quarter, play-action TD pass from Joe Flacco to fullback Patrick Ricard, Spielman disgusted with Lions letting Ricard bleed free from the backfield, the same as with an earlier short TD to Ben Watson: They [the Lions] just have no communication on that play. This is something that happens all the time. They cannot defend the play-action pass on goal-line and short yardage.

All of which happened after Newton was either concussed earlier in the fourth quarter, or he wasn’t.

That’s no way for the Panthers’ season to end, for their playoff game to end, or for another year of Newton’s career to end. On the other hand, this is what the Panthers created, and it’s what they gave Newton, the cornerstone of the franchise, so in a sense it’s exactly how it should have ended.

In the wake of that season-ending 31-26 defeat, there are only so many times one can ask whether the Panthers want Newton to just win by himself, if it’s some kind of game they’re playing to see how little help they can get away with giving.

Tom Brady Jersey, Bill Belichick grow frustrated with questions around trainer Alex Guerrero

There’s been speculation for quite some time of a rift between Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s trainer Alex Guerrero, and after a report came out earlier this week saying the Patriots banned Guerrero from the sidelines and team jet, it only added more to the speculation.

Of course, everyone wants to get to the bottom of this report, but in true Belichick fashion, he’s not giving away any information on the speculated issue at hand between the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady’s personal trainer.
Limited Josh Mauro Jersey
Yeah, this is another one with no sources, right? Belichick said when the issue came up (via ProFootballTalk.com). Yep. I’m not going to get into that. Yeah, because there are none mentioned.

The next question which followed was whether or not it’s true Guerrero’s access has been limited by the team, and in a very broad, generalized response, Belichick still didn’t answer the question.

Look, we have a lot of people that work for our team outside of the team, and there are different relationships, different situations with dozens of other people, Belichick said. So, I’m not going to go through a case-by-case of what everybody does and so forth. That would be impossible to do, and I’m not going to do it.
