Browns’ David Njoku Jersey spiked the ball directly into his own butt

David Njoku wanted to celebrate his touchdown catch (as you do), so he spiked the ball (as you do), into his butt (what?)

Tobias later told the NFL investigators that he did not think the woman lied to his office. He said we generally believed her for all of the incidents.

Davante Adams Game Jersey Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods are gone, LeSean McCoy has struggled at a 3.2 yards per carry clip, and now Charles Clay is hurt. None of this has stopped Tyrod Taylor from playing solid football; he sports a 6-2 TD-INT mark through five games. He has been more conservative (7.5-yard average depth of throw is down from 9.2 last season), and he is completing 63 percent of his passes. Taylor’s 32 carries rank second among quarterbacks. A rough schedule to open the season limited Taylor’s fantasy production, but life will be easier with the Buccaneers, Raiders, Jets, Saints and Chargers defenses up next. Taylor is a fringe QB1 option.

Along with the silence, fans were asked to shine lights from their phones for the victims of the tragedy, and the brightest city on Earth.

Authentic Youth Melvin Ingram Jersey The shooting occurred on Sunday night, when at least 58 people were killed and 500 injured, according to CNN. The shooting happened at the Route 91 Harvest festival — an outdoor country music concert.

It was quite the scene before the game, and a nice tribute for a horrific tragedy.

In a written statement to Columbus police, she said, this has previously happened as well multiple times in the past.

Colin Kaepernick Jersey files collusion grievance against NFL owners

The Jaguars’ defense has embarrassed a shocking number of quarterbacks so far this season, and they are capable of adding Jared Goff to that list. Then again, Goff is capable of coming within a dropped pass in the end zone of beating a defensive juggernaut like Seattle. If his defense can keep Leonard Fournette in check 鈥?a big if 鈥?the Rams can bounce back after last week.

Rob Scuderi Youth Jersey Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after beating the Chiefs: I guess this old cowboy’s got a little left in him.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid on passing up a field goal to go for it on fourth-and 2 from the 4 against the Steelers: I don’t worry about the questions that will be asked afterwards; I do what my gut tells me to do…It didn’t work out, so hindsight ends up being that you wish you would have kicked it.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota on ending the team’s 11-game losing streak to the Colts: The monkey’s off our back and we get to go out there and just play now.

The players’ union and the league issued a joint statement just before the annual autumn owners meetings began. Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities, the statement said.

The upside is that games are better, more competitive, and though it’s still a good six weeks away, we might actually have an exciting playoff race. The downside for, um, professional analysts is that it makes picking games that much harder.

Except for the Browns. We can pretty much put them down for a loss every week. Thank heavens for that small slice of reliability we can cling to in the stormy seas of parity.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater Jersey cleared for practice

The Vikings’ week keeps getting better.
Elite Mitchell Marner Jersey
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared to return to practice, coach Mike Zimmer announced Monday.

Bridgewater has been sidelined since August 2016, when he dislocated his knee on a non-contact play in practice. Dr. Dan Cooper, who performed surgery on Bridgewater’s knee after the injury, reportedly cleared him to begin practice on Wednesday.

The Vikings now need to decide of they will take Bridgewater off the PUP list, which means there will be a three-week period where they assess if he will be promoted to the active roster or placed on injured reserve.

For now, Case Keenum is expected to retain starting duties, with former starter Sam Bradford continuing to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee.

Thus, even all the discussion referenced in the grievance (according to a copy posted by ESPN.com) about the league’s efforts to squelch player protest, possibly making standing for the national anthem mandatory 鈥?even all the interference from President Donald Trump, such as conversing with owners about player protests 鈥?would not rise to the level of collusion.

Titans kicker Ryan Succop kept the Titans in the game amid their early offensive struggles with five field goals. Succop also broke the NFL record for consecutive field goals under 50 yards with his first field goal of the game. The mark is now 47 in a row.

Game A.J. Bouye Jersey

Iguodala’s impact was immediate and also severely understated.

The stakes: The Indians haven’t lost two in a row since Aug. 23. The Yankees have to beat them for a second straight game to stay alive. Good news for the Indians: Teams up 2-1 in a best-of-five series go on to win 72 percent of the time (59-22). As suspected when the Indians chose to initially start Bauer over Corey Kluber in Game 1, the Indians decided to bring Bauer back in Game 4 on short rest instead of Josh Tomlin, in part because Tomlin did warm up at one point in Game 3. Good news for the Yankees: They have their best starting pitcher going in Severino (we’ll pretend that wild-card game never happened).

If the Yankees win: Then we get a Game 5 matchup between Kluber and Sonny Gray. Because Tanaka went seven innings on Sunday and there was an off day on Saturday, the Yankees’ bullpen is in great shape. Only David Robertson (nine pitches) and Aroldis Chapman (34 pitches) were used on Sunday, which leaves Chad Green, Adam Warren, Dellin Betances and Tommy Kahnle all rested and ready to go. The only concern is Chapman’s 34 pitches might make Girardi hesitant to use him for more than one inning.

A veteran All-Star with a strong defensive pedigree whose on-court impact far exceeds box score contributions joins a young core hungry to compete — where have we seen that before?

When Iguodala joined the Warriors, he was coming off two straight seasons in which he ranked among the top 20 in RPM, despite averaging a pedestrian 12.7 points per game over that same span. The casual fan might have seen a dependable and versatile player, but not necessarily a star.

While Curry made the All-Star team and both David Lee and Klay Thompson pumped in more than 18 PPG, Iguodala averaged his fewest points since his rookie season, while not leading the team in any major statistical category. Without Iguodala on the floor, lineups with those three on the court outscored teams by 3.4 points per 100 possessions. In the more than 1,000 minutes with Iguodala, Curry, Lee and Thompson on the floor, the team’s net rating soared to plus-17.1, suggesting that Iguodala’s impact far outweighed anything that shows up on the back of a basketball card.ravens_136

Travis Kelce Jersey and Greg Olsen Jersey hilariously try the hottest chip on the planet

NFL tight ends Travis Kelce and Greg Olsen recently took the #OneChipChallenge.
Limited Justin Britt Jersey
What’s the challenge? Eating the world’s hottest chip, the Carolina Reaper Madness, that’s made with the hottest chile pepper on the planet, the Carolina Reaper

The Browns will break in a new quarterback against the red-hot Texans; the Niners travel cross country to face the 2-2 Redskins, who are coming off their bye; and the offensively stunted Giants head to Denver to face the Broncos, who are also coming off a bye and have the league’s top-ranked defense.

Don’t expect Adrian Peterson to have much of an impact on Arizona’s stagnant running game. At 32, he has just 81 yards on 27 carries this season with the Saints and averaged only 1.9 yards on 37 attempts last season with the Vikings before injuring his knee.
Limited Wesley Woodyard Jersey
The Jaguars lead the NFL with 10 interceptions and their league-high 20 sacks are a big reason why. They’ll try to force second-year Rams quarterback Jared Goff into some mistakes, but L.A. has allowed just six sacks.

Newton ran it in from there as a lane opened up and he juked his way past Eagles rookie cornerback Rasul Douglas for an easy touchdown.

Douglas got some revenge on the next Panthers possession. Fletcher Cox, out the last two weeks with a calf injury, hit Newton as he was throwing. That resulted in a fluttering ball that Douglas snatched out of the air at the Panthers 12-yard line.

Carson Wentz Jersey completed 21 of 30 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns against the Cardinals in Week 5.

Elite Kids Colorado Rockies Jersey He now has 10 touchdowns and three interceptions on the year and sits sixth among quarterbacks in fantasy points. Despite his early-season success, Wentz’s 62 percent completion rate is actually the same as last year’s mark. There’s an explanation for that. The second-year passer’s average depth of throw has jumped from a conservative 7.5 to a massive 9.9 in 2017. Despite going deep more often, Wentz’s off-target rate is down from 17 percent to 15 percent. His yards per attempt has jumped from a poor 6.2 to a solid 7.7. Wentz also is adding more with his legs. He totaled 150 yards and two touchdowns on 46 carries last year, but he already is at 108 yards on 26 carries this season. It’s too early to anoint Wentz after a five-game sample, but he’s well on his way to a breakout second season. Wentz remains a fringe QB1 and a fine streaming option, but he should be on benches at Carolina on Thursday.

The Giants’ wide receiver position is ravaged by injuries, with the headliner being Odell Beckham Jr., who is out for the season with a fractured ankle. Brandon Marshall’s season also ended Tuesday when the Giants placed him on injured reserve after he suffered an ankle injury in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers. It got so bad that the Giants had one healthy receiver by the end of the game. Dwayne Harris (foot) is also out for the season, and Sterling Shepard is nursing an ankle injury. It has reached the point that you wonder who Eli Manning will throw to the rest of the season. — Jordan Raanan

Elite Kids Bruce Ellington Jersey The matchup this week really drives increased value for Kearse, as the Patriots have allowed the third-most yards (194.6) and fifth-most fantasy points to wideouts this season. As the top target on a team that should prove pass-heavy attempting to pace the Patriots’ elite offense, pairing Kearse with McCown could prove profitable for daily fantasy and deep redraft leagues this weekend. — McCormick

Titans’ Marcus Mariota Jersey will be a game-time decision vs. Dolphins

Marcus Mariota’s availability for Sunday remains uncertain.

The Titans quarterback will be a game-time decision for the team’s Week 5 game against the Dolphins, coach Mike Mularkey announced Friday.

He did good for what we asked him to do, Mularkey said Friday, via the team’s website. We are not putting him through a point where we would make the (hamstring) any worse, so I think it feels good right now.

Another Hall of Fame running back Jerome Bettis is next up on the rushing list for Gore. Bettis rushed for 13,662 yards in his career. The 34-year-old Gore will have to be more productive on the ground if he expects to pass Bettis this season. Gore went into Sunday averaging 47.8 yards rushing a game through the first four weeks of the season.

Elite Womens Jace Amaro Jersey Gore finished Sunday’s game with 48 rushing yards on 14 carries.
Elite Youth Nick Boyle Jersey
Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans, hamstring, (Q), 1:00 p.m. ET: Once again, Carr and Mariota suffer injuries during the same week, just as they did in 2016. Last year, the injuries ended their respective seasons. This year, both players appear to have escaped injuries that cost them multiple games. Both, however, come into Week 5 as questionable. Mariota’s left hamstring injury was deemed not serious, although the team hinted early on at a potential absence of a week to ensure full health before returning Mariota to action.

Attendance was tepid for the Rams’ first two home games.

Frank Gore takes advantage of good timing against his former team to push up to No. 7 on the all-time rushing list ahead of Eric Dickerson. His replacement in San Francisco, Carlos Hyde, will keep the visitors in it, but it’s easier to trust Jacoby Brissett and Adam Vinatieri at home vs. Brian Hoyer and Robbie Gould on the road.

Joe Flacco and EJ Manuel is the QB matchup nobody wanted to see this season, so here it is. The Black Hole is a tough trip for the falling black birds. Khalil Mack makes up for Derek Carr’s absence as Oakland’s defense out-slugs that of Baltimore in an ugly game.

Mitchell Trubisky draws his first career start against a tough Vikings defense, and Minnesota might very well get Sam Bradford back. Chicago will still lean heavily on its young backs, while Bradford, without Dalvin Cook, will help open things up again to Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph. More aggressive trumps more conservative on MNF.

On any given Sunday, any team can win or lose in the NFL. Through the first four weeks of the 2017 season, that hasn’t applied to the undefeated Chiefs or the winless Giants, Chargers, Browns or 49ers.

What has gone wrong: Attendance was tepid for the Rams’ first two home games. Interest may pick up with the franchise now winning and playing a much more exciting brand of football than it did under former coach Jeff Fisher.

What’s next: The 32-year-old McVay must take steps to prevent a team unaccustomed to winning lose focus, especially in a city that offers as many off-field temptations as Los Angeles. The Rams’ offense also faces its toughest test to date in Sunday’s home game against Seattle.

What’s next: Houston has emerged as the AFC South’s best team through four weeks, but the Texans might be hard pressed to open a significant lead with games against Kansas City and Seattle coming in October. The offensive line would get a lift if left tackle Duane Brown were to end his contract holdout.

Odell Beckham Jr Jersey says Buccaneers knew what routes he was running

Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves told him after Sunday’s game that he knew what routes were coming.

I mean, they study film, Beckham told reporters Wednesday. When I was talking to (Vernon) Hargreaves after the game he was just like, ‘You know, we know a lot of what you’re doing.’ It still just comes to a point where we have to trust it.
Elite Kids Rob Havenstein Jersey
Beckham did catch seven passes for 90 yards in the Giants’ 25-23 loss to the Buccaneers Sunday, but he was targeted 15 times in the game and had several passes broken up due to good coverage.

Kids Bobby Jenks Jersey The statement: The NFL and NFLPA met today to discuss the important issue of social activism by NFL players. Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith, Eric Winston, Robert Kraft, J Mara, Art Rooney and other player leaders engaged in a productive conversation. We are all committed to an ongoing dialogue.

The issue of kneeling during the national anthem as a way for players to protest what they consider injustice aimed at people of color began last season with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. It became a hot-button topic this season after President Donald Trump ripped the NFL and its players who kneeled in protest during the anthem.

Subsequent games have seen varying levels of protest or shows of solidarity by players and teams, some before the anthem and some during it.

What has gone right: The Bengals already have 12 sacks with rookie Carl Lawson making an immediate splash. Second-year tight end Tyler Kroft is starting to step up in place of the oft-injured Tyler Eifert (back).
