Bears vs. Rams 2017 picks and predictions: Experts slightly favoring Chicago

Despite being tied for both the NFC North lead and the second wild card slot, the Bears are currently on the outside of the playoff picture. Chicago’s 3-4 conference record hurts in tie-breaker scenarios, making the game on Sunday in St. Louis even more important.

Reports indicate that Thomas, who suffered a knee strain against the Chiefs in Week 11, looked limited. His availability for Sunday is day-to-day.

Welker experienced concussion-like symptoms, as well as a neck injury, after taking a hard hit late against the Chiefs. Whether he will be able to make his New England homecoming against his former team is still uncertain, but his presence at practice was confirmed.

Manning aggravated a sprained ankle two weeks ago against the Chargers, but looked fine last week as he picked apart the vaunted Chiefs defense for 323 yards and a touchdown.

Babers was on staff while Tevin Elliot was a member of the Bears. Four months after Babers left, the defensive end was arrested on two counts of sexual assault and removed from the team. He was sentenced in 2017 to 20 years in prison. Baylor was later sued by five women who say Elliot raped them from 2009 to 2017, four of them testifying against him.

When asked about the scandal, Babers said:

I can talk about from 2008 to 2011, and Tevin Elliot was there. Heard he did bad, heard he got kicked off the team. And I became a head coach. And that’s not, how do I say this? That’s not to cover me. It’s just what happened.

I’m military. Boom, boom, next. There are certain things that you don’t get second chances for. I got four daughters. I’m down with that.

If you made the Babers biopic, you’d have a ready-made heart-stopping moment.


the team would be in good hands when they face Detroit.

Jimmy Howard Kids Jersey Cutler appears to be on track to start this afternoon against the Lions despite suffering a tear to the groin muscle in Week 7 against the Redskins. The Chicago QB was initially expected to miss four weeks at a minimum but has made a speedy recovery, was cleared to return this past Thursday and has had no issues in practice. The Bears benefitted last week from a solid performance from backup Josh McCown against Green Bay, and if for some reason Cutler suffers a setback, the team would be in good hands when they face Detroit.

Womens Cameron Brate Jersey It might have been difficult to stand out, anyway, as there is a huge array of women, ranging in age and personality, including one woman pregnant with twins and a middle-aged woman with Patriots temporary tattoos on her face.

Lets talk trade value here for Big Ben, you have to believe the market price would be 5 or 6 first round picks given that the Redskins gave up 3 to get RG3 and Big Ben has been cleared of more then twice as many sexual assault allegations as Griffin.

I’m personally hoping for a scenario that sends Big Ben out to the dessert to team up with his old OC Bruce Arians and no-nonsense Sherrif Joe Arpaio who will keep Ben in line and also educate him on taxlaw and politics setting the stage for Senator Roethlessberger in 2020 running on a platform of border and ball security while buying time in the pocket until another Bush kid can get open downfield for the 2024 nod.

Ryans actually more of a thermos guy then a lunchpail fella,, I call him the mosquito because he only eats liquid lunches and you got to imagine his stomachs constantly filled with blood. True hes a type guy youd sooner expect to see selling novelty glassware then papers on the corner but if you take your fans out for beers after a big win, your going straight to the top of my list folks.

Stevie Johnson injury: Bills WR not ruled out yet vs. Jets

Authentic Womens Mike Dunleavy Jersey
Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson has missed two days of practice this week with a groin injury, but head coach Doug Marrone is not ready to rule him out. Marrone did add that he does not “feel good about him being able to play.” Johnson is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

Johnson suffered the injury last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had three catches for 48 yards in that game.

Authentic Womens Kobe Bryant Jersey Johnson leads the team with 41 catches for 471 yards, and the Bills are 29th in passing yardage this season. Rookie E.J. Manuel returned from a four-game absence last Sunday against Pittsburgh, but he might not have his No. 1 receiver this week against the Jets. If Johnson is forced to sit out, rookie Robert Woods may see an increase in targets. Woods has 26 catches for 349 yards this season.

If Chad Henne tried to blow a game could you even tell? I mean as crazy as it sounds the Jaguars probably should have blown out the Titans on Sunday. But for some reason Henne kept trying to throw it to the Titans secondary. I say try because while he threw two interceptions there were at least two, maybe three, other passes that he threw that looked like they were intended for Titans players. Next thing you know the Jaguars are hanging on for dear life at the end of the game. I seriously wouldn’t be able to tell if he is just that bad or if he was doing it on purpose.

Tip of the cap to Giants running back Andre Brown. Fresh off injured reserve, he rushed for a career-high 115 yards on a work horse load of 30 carries. Having come back from two broken legs and a ruptured Achilles, this guy is a living breathing rumbling stumbling testament to the rewards of perseverance and hard work.

NFL free agency: Terrelle Pryor signs 1-year deal with Redskins instead of Browns return

Pryor, a former quarterback, joins a Washington team that needed a playmaking receiver this offseason. The Redskins lost their top two wideouts — DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon — to free agency, and were left with mostly unproven players.

Fabian Johnson Game Jersey But after a looong time reviewing it, six minutes and 47 seconds to be exact, the refs finally reversed the call. In the video above, NCAA Tournament announcer Chris Webber was not happy throughout the review, and openly criticized the refs for taking such a long time — a criticism that, to be honest, was pretty warranted.

Adam Duvall Game Jersey The call going in the Mountaineers’ favor turned out well, as WVU hit a three-pointer on the next possession.

We’ll see if we get more from Webber on this call and its long review.

I’m able to dissect defenses, study really hard and I played in different roles, Smith-Schuster said. I played through a lot of injuries. Obviously I broke a couple bones and didn’t quit, being able to put my body on the line.

I feel like I can do a lot of things, Jackson said. I’m a playmaker. Punt the ball to me, kick return, interception, pick up a fumble, create a fumble, put me on offense and I’ll take a bubble [screen] somewhere. I just make plays.

Plenty of productive college players have struggled to find success in the NFL when lacking ideal physical skills. But Jackson and Smith-Schuster are sure they’ll keep making plays in the NFL.

Harbaugh said any team willing to take the time to develop Kaepernick and maximize his skill set will reap the benefits.

It was in that year that the Big East, discussed all season long in greatest conference of all time terms, set the still-standing record for most teams in an NCAA tournament from a single conference. After the tournament is opening weekend, nine of the Big East is 11 representatives had been eliminated, and schadenfreude from the rest of the country was at an all-time high. The only problem was that one of those remaining representatives, Connecticut, went on to win the national championship. The Huskies’ run also salvaged (at least partially) the legacy of the 2010-11 Big East, and is the reason why the conference is performance that year still gets brought up in a mostly positive light.

The following season, the 49ers made it back to the NFC title game but lost to the Seattle Seahawks. After the 2014 season, Harbaugh mutually agreed to void his contract with the team following an 8-8 finish. Kaepernick is decline began the following season, and he started just eight games before being benched by head coach Jim Tomsula.

Kaepernick eventually won the starting job back under last year is head coach, Chip Kelly, and finished the season with 2,241 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions over 11 starts. Now he is looking for a new NFL home after voiding his contract with the 49ers this spring.

Harbaugh said any team willing to take the time to develop Kaepernick and maximize his skill set will reap the benefits. It just remains to be seen which team — if any — that will be.

We’ve already seen this weirdness in reverse with a Hall of Fame QB in the NFC North, Brett Favre. The Packers don’t typically go for aging free agents, but when they do, it has a Canton-like flair.

As the Vikings try to catch up in the division, you can bet the Packers also wouldn’t mind using Peterson effectively against them.21

Duffy allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits in four-plus innings.

They threatened again in the fifth when Machado hit a leadoff single to chase Duffy. Cruz hit a one-out double off Pat Neshek, who then retired Carlos Santana on a popup and struck out Marte.

Neshek pumped his fists as he walked off the mound.

“This was a very difficult game,” Dominican Republic manager Tony Pena said. “You have [eight] players on base and we couldn’t do the best. I feel very proud of each one of them. I won’t point to any one of them. Simply the U.S. team [made] the right pitches at that particular time frame and that’s what cost us the game.”

Duffy allowed two runs, one earned, and six hits in four-plus innings. He struck out one and walked one.

Ervin Santana gave up four runs and six hits in 3? innings. He struck out two and walked none.

“No doubt,” Jones said. “He’s just so positive. He basically takes all the blame when things go wrong, and that’s what good managers do. He takes charge. He puts all the negative on himself and tries to put all the positive on the players.

“He’s a winner. I hope one day he makes it. He has the desire and the fire in himself to do it. It’s just about getting the opportunity to get that interview and get that chance.”

Game Mens Xavier Cooper Jersey Meulens isn’t the only member of manager Bruce Bochy’s San Francisco staff who has attracted attention as a managerial prospect. Bochy and Brian Sabean, the Giants’ executive vice president of baseball operations, have consistently touted bench coach Ron Wotus, pitching coach Dave Righetti and Meulens as candidates with the résumés and attributes to make the jump.

GWAR Super Bowl movement enters ‘days of rage’ phase

Limited Kids Ryan Kesler USA Jersey The NFL measures its success in the billions of dollars and millions of viewers and hundreds of thousands of Wayne Chrebet jerseys still inexplicably being worn around the greater New York/New Jersey/Connecticut Tri-State Area. It is vast and vastly profitable, a bestriding colossus with its towering head cloud-shrouded and well out of view.

A different sort of gravity obtains in this sort of corporate stratosphere — things that seem heavy and hard here on earth seem to float by, light and soft and easily ignored. By most reasonable standards, it’s a pretty stupendous achievement that Kentucky native Jeff Cantrell has gotten over 45,000 signatures on his petition to get GWAR — a heavy metal outfit comprised of vicious butt-obsessed alien warlords — the halftime slot at the 2015 Super Bowl. In the NFL’s world, where life starts at a million, it has been less worthy of note.

“It’s a really difficult situation,” Collins said. “The players are doing what they’re supposed to be doing. The referees have to officiate the play for its own merits, and that makes a really difficult situation.”

Collins said the play was ruled a common foul at first because officials knew they’d be able to review at at the monitor later. And they did.

“When a player puts two hands on the back and doesn’t make any attempt to play the ball or the player, get in front of him, it’s an F1 foul,” he said.

Duke’s Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles are living up to the hype ahead of March Madness

In the span of just over a minute on Saturday, Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum twice sent the Barclays Center crowd into a frenzy. First, Giles slammed home a lob from Grayson Allen for his second basket in as many possessions. Then, Tatum cleaned up a missed three with a rim-rattling dunk when no one boxed him out.

Those two plays got Duke going as the Blue Devils took an early lead and eventually defeated Notre Dame, 75-69, in Brooklyn to win their first ACC championship since 2011.

The last time Rhode Island won the A-10 tournament, they did so in dramatic fashion in 1999, when Lamar Odom pulled up with this shot at the buzzer to send URI to the dance.

There’s an argument that URI didn’t necessarily need to win this game to get into the tournament, but it certainly makes for a much more comfortable selection show and a much easier week for the team. Our resident bracketologist, Chris Dobbertean, had the Rams in the First Four, which would mean a play-in game in Dayton before the first round. But auto-bids that don’t get a No. 16 seed earn the right to not be in the First Four.

As far as VCU goes, they’re still a fairly safe bet to make the tourney. Our bracketologist currently projects them as a No. 8 seed.

Rhode Island’s auto-bid might cause some hand-wringing among other bubble teams, though — not that URI cares.

“I got to see the whole campus,” Winston said. “The campus is huge, huge. It’s a great campus.”

Winston said La’Mar would like him to land with him at Oregon, but the older brother is giving the younger brother his unconditional support.

“He’s not on me,” Eli’Jah said. “He’s more like accepting whatever decision I make. He’s always been a role model like that, so he’s not looking at me just to bring me to Oregon. He’s looking at me so I can go to whatever place best fits me.”
