as the Cowboys flexed their muscles in every phase of the game on their way to a 40-10 win.

Arsenal’s chances of finally signing Karim Benzema Felix Potvin Authentic Jersey have received a boost as reports claim a massive Real Madrid clearout could happen at the end of the season.

If the latter was to leave Arsenal, however, Wenger would be in need of suitable cover for Lacazette and this would allow for Benzema to possibly trade sunnier climes in the Iberian peninsula for the Premier League.

Game Youth Aldon Smith Jersey The 29-year-old has come in for some flak in recent seasons from Real’s fan-base as he struggles to find his best form.

Perez only recently came out in support of Benzema after he was criticised by Match of the Day host Gary Lineker, and the 70-year-old’s comments would give an indication that he harbours no hopes of seeing Benzema put up for sale in the immediate future.

Benzema has netted 183 goals in 375 games for Real throughout his eight-year spell with the reigning La Liga champions.

Dallas did receive a boost earlier in the week when running back Ezekiel Elliott was cleared to play against San Francisco, as his six-game suspension was kicked further down the road. His play was a huge factor Sunday.

The Cowboys got the win they desperately needed in order to keep pace in the NFC East, in which the Eagles had taken a solid lead going into their Monday night showdown against the Redskins.

I’m part fan, part missionary, trying to teach Icelanders the rules of a game that nobody understands while at the same time spreading the good word of the Browns, explained the 28-year-old.

49ers to work with police unions on social issues, call for bump stock ban

For more than a year, the San Francisco 49ers and law enforcement have been common players in the ongoing controversy surrounding protests taking place during the national anthem.

On Thursday, those two sides came together to announce a new initiative with a shared goal in mind.

So far this season, New Orleans is allowing 22.2 points per game, good for just 16th in the league but historically good enough to make it a contender. And during the Saints’ winning streak (which followed an 0-2 start in which they allowed 29 and 36), they’re allowing only 17 points per game.

In Watson, the Texans (3-3) have a signal caller ranking first in touchdown percentage (8.6), tied for second in touchdown passes (15) and sixth in passer rating (101.1). Watson led the NFL in scoring strikes before the Texans enjoyed their week off last weekend, and Watson used a portion of his downtime to continue improving instead of resting on his considerable laurels.

The contrast to the mood in the Rams’ locker room could hardly have been greater, with wide receiver Robert Woods praising an offensive performance in which Goff spread the ball around efficiently between his pass-catchers.

“That’s our main goal when we play we try to move the ball around, spread it around, attack all sides of the field and I think we did so,” Woods said. “Put up the points, took time off the clock, a lot of first downs and finish drives, I think that’s the reason why we had success.

“Our biggest thing is just pounding the ball, it doesn’t matter who is in front of us. We just go out try to execute, move the ball, spread it around, put up points, and that’s our main objective.”tigers_052-115x115

Some good news for the Steelers: On Wednesday, Bryant didn’t refute the idea that he wants out, but he did say that he’s done causing drama.

If I’m not traded I’m going to work my butt off here, and whatever happens happens, he said, per Fowler. You’re not going to hear me complaining no more. I’m just going to be quiet and let everything fall into place.

The next time NFL owners and players meet to discuss social issues, the national anthem and more, there will be another voice in the room. According to a report from Yahoo!’s Charles Robinson, Colin Kaepernick was invited by NFL players to attend the next meeting, and this time, he’ll be there.

Colin Kaepernick was invited by #NFL players to attend next meeting w/ owners and will attend. Players are happy to have him join, I’m told.

The meeting took place shortly after Kaepernick had filed a grievance against NFL owners, alleging that they have colluded to keep him out of the league because of his protests against police brutality and racial inequality during the national anthem last season.

Elite Youth Josh Reynolds Jersey He was good in relief against the Jets, but he faces a tougher challenge here. This is a game that will be decided by the two defenses. I think it will be Miami that will find a way to win a close one.

You’ve got a ton of star players on the shelf. You got great star quarterbacks on the shelf. You got a major issue with the national anthem. You got expensive tickets you didn’t need to give as you gouge fans all the time 鈥?in most cases gouge them 鈥?charge Authentic Nolan Ryan Jersey them personal seat licenses, gouge them for tickets, and then you’re going to have them go there and watch people disrespect the flag and think a lot of them are going to like that?

It’s not that the Chiefs didn’t need BIG SEXY HIGHLIGHT plays this week

Asked what the league would do if a team decided to discipline its players, Goodell said he didn’t want to get into hypotheticals. He reiterated that no changes were made to official policy.

Goodell said he understands that fans have voiced their displeasure at the protests but noted that the players who are protesting aren’t doing so to be disrespectful to the flag.

However, they also understand how it is being interpreted and we are trying to deal with those underlying issues, Goodell said.

It doesn’t change our plans just yet, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid said Wednesday. Like I said, it’s a great starting point. Nothing is set in stone yet so nothing is going to change on my part moving forward until we get more concrete plans and to where I feel like I don’t need to protest anymore because the NFL is providing a better platform.

I used this last week and I’m going to unapologetically use it this week, too. Romo calling games is informative, and you might learn a thing or two in the process.

Elite Kids Adam Larsson Jersey It’s not that the Chiefs didn’t need BIG SEXY HIGHLIGHT plays this week. They did. Every team needs as many 15-second wonder-making moments as possible. Doled out in regular portions, those plays are like powerful drugs that keep fans coming back. Only winning consistently Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey is more addictive.

Hunt played a pivotal role dispensing the Chiefs’ latest win to hungry fans. He might not have snapped off a 50-yard run, but just knowing that he might kept them fixed to the screen. Four games into a fledgling career, Hunt may already be the most exciting player in football.

It’s part of San Antonio’s plans to make Aldridge more comfortable after two frustrating seasons with the Spurs.

Aldridge’s running dunk on a bounce pass from Manu Ginobili gave the Spurs a 100-92 lead with 1:42 remaining.

Ginobili finished nine points and four assists, including a 3-pointer within a minute of entering the game midway through the first quarter. Ginobili received a huge ovation similar to the one he got in the team’s final game last season when fans were not sure if he would return.

Elite Youth Deion Sanders Jersey Danny Green added 17 points while shooting 3 for 7 on 3-pointers. Dejounte Murray had 16 points, five rebounds and two assists while starting in place of Parker.

No offense to speedy Duke Riley or big-time free agent signing Dontari Poe, but Takk’s been the best newcomer for these Atlanta Falcons, without question. He’s looked like the team’s third-best pass rusher behind Vic Beasley and (hilariously) Brooks Reed, he’s had a very short learning curve, and his speed and power off the edge will make him dangerous all year long. Given his sky-high ceiling and current level of production, he’s a slam dunk choice as the best player Atlanta’s added in 2017 thus far. Plus he’s my favorite Falcon on Twitter, by a wide margin.

Within his first start in Baltimore, Carr let it be known that he is here to play, to win, and to make plays. He intercepted an errant Andy Dalton pass in Week 1. DeShone Kizer was his Week 2 victim, as he hauled in another pick. Brandon’s addition has paid dividends.

White, the NFL’s reigning Defensive Rookie of the Month for September, has been plugged in as a starting cornerback since Day 1 and was elevated to the top spot in August when Buffalo traded Ronald Darby to the Eagles. All White has done is pass every test thrown his way.

Hernandez lawyers refile CTE suit against NFL in state court

Football helmet maker Riddell says it intends to vigorously defend its products and its reputation against concussion-related lawsuits like the one lawyers for late New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez have filed in Massachusetts against it and the NFL.

Elliott’s appeal hearing wrapped up early Thursday afternoon, after three days and 25 hours. With the start of the Cowboys’ season just over a week away, there is reportedly pressure on Henderson to have a decision by Monday.

In a statement, Henderson said that it was his duty to determine if Goodell was arbitrary and capricious in his decision to suspend Elliott, but it was not his duty to second guess his decision.

[Goodell] is entitled to deference on those judgments absent irregularities not present here. While the record contains inconsistencies in statements, an adjudicator makes informed judgments on the credibility of witnesses and evidence, Henderson said.

Broncos kicker Brandon McManus could be looking for a new job after missing two field goals, including one that could have tied the game early. Broncos punt returner Isaiah McKenzie also had a pair of questionable plays, including nearly muffing a punt. Unfortunately for McKenzie, he was carted off with a leg injury.

The play already was a success when Martavis Bryant became involved, and he didn’t add much if anything to extend its value. But he didn’t do nothing. As Brown fought for extra yards, Bryant slammed his wiry frame into free safety Ron Parker and dropped him to the turf. Brown went down about the same time, in the same area, but he noticed the effort Bryant had spent and rewarded it with a hand slap.

Kelly pitched the third, and then Price scattered four hits and a walk while throwing 57 pitches in his longest outing since July. Since going to the bullpen in September after missing most of the season with elbow problems, Price has made seven straight scoreless appearances.texans_129

Sanchez hit his second home run of the series off Bryan Shaw in the sixth to make it 7-3.

Indians: Encarnacion is day to day, Francona said. He did not expect the slugger to be available off the bench in this one. … Ramirez fouled a ball off his right leg in the fourth. He was checked by a trainer but stayed in the game. … Francona said he had his entire bullpen available after Friday’s 13-inning victory.

Yankees: Dellin Betances wasn’t used after throwing 35 pitches in two-plus innings and taking the loss in Game 2. Before the game, Girardi said he wasn’t sure if the big right-hander would be available.

Indians: Bauer struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings of two-hit ball during a 4-0 win in the series opener last Thursday. I think he’ll be just fine, Francona said. Josh Tomlin was initially penciled in to start a potential Game 4, but he tossed two hitless innings in relief Friday and was the Game 2 winner.

Limited Paul Krause Jersey After conducting his postgame interview with the media, Walton spent nearly half an hour with the Robbins family, introducing them to as many Lakers players as he could while hugging all the family members and friends as much as he could. Joe Robbins cried as Walton embraced him and shared words.

Trevor Bauer is attracting more attention these days, as well, as an idiosyncratic, drone-loving baseball geek who has reached a higher level by resisting the pressures to conform. He has a compelling story to share.

If Kluber and Bauer are the Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo of the Cleveland rotation, that leaves Carlos Carrasco in the role of the third tenor, Jose Carreras. His teammates call him Cookie, but on the national-recognition scale, he might as well be the other guy.

That could all change Sunday night, when Carrasco tends to some potential r茅sum茅 embellishment and profile enhancement in the Bronx.

Odell Beckham Jr. caught a 48-yard touchdown pass, then performed CPR on the ball

Joe Thuney Limited Jersey Odell Beckham Jr. has been the only consistent scoring presence in the Giants’ offense. And also the team’s best end-zone doctor.

Game Jihad Ward Jersey Crowder has been targeted closer to the line of scrimmage (5.0 aDOT), and his post-catch production is down (4.6 RAC). His catch rate is a healthy 74 percent, but a lack of explosive plays and minimal work near the goal line have limited his production. Crowder scored seven touchdowns (3.9 OTD) and handled six end zone targets last season. He has yet to see an end zone target and sports a 0.7 OTD this season. Crowder has enough upside to warrant a bench spot, but he’s a risky play against the Eagles this week.

The entire list of the Week 7 overall matchup grades are posted below, along with a detailed look at some of the favorable and unfavorable blocking matchups fantasy managers should be aware of and how those could impact their start-sit decisions. Subjects here include gauging upside potential for Atlanta’s players versus New England, if Kareem Hunt can turn things around after a relatively subpar Week 6 and whether to trust Cincinnati players on the road against Pittsburgh.

The Giants are up 22-20 late in the game, but they already don’t have a rushing game, and Beckham is the FOURTH Giants wideout to leave with an injury. Eli Manning is gonna have to run the wing-T from a goal line formation.

My daughter, who is almost healed from her broken collarbone, is looking at the screen with concern. I say, He’s sad because he hurt his leg, sweetie.

My wife adds, Where’s he going to go to make his leg better? Who’s he going to see?

Stevens’ words were steady, calm. Yet the anguish in his eyes betrayed him.

Limited Mens Desmond Bryant Jersey Stevens’ relationship with Hayward dates back a decade. At Butler, Stevens was the first to believe in Hayward, the small-college coach relentlessly pursuing the small-high-school player. Together, they advanced to a Final Four. Because of each other they became prized NBA commodities. And seven years after Hayward’s halfcourt heave nearly upended Duke in the national title game, Hayward and Stevens reunited to chase an NBA championship.

Hopefully, Stevens said, we’ll get a full recovery.

Inside the locker room, silence. Boston rallied valiantly, improbably, after Hayward’s injury. The Celtics fell behind by 18 and pushed back to lead by four only to lose 102-99. On one end, Horford, one of four returning players from last season’s 53-win team, dressed dutifully. He was on the floor when Hayward fell. He heard the sound. He saw the leg. He knew the injury was significant. He winced when a reporter asked him about it.

Asked how he responds to such fans, Mara said: I respond to them by saying that I prefer that our players stand. I’ve asked our players to stand. I think we’re down to one player who has continued to kneel. But at the end of the day, this is America and we do have a thing called the First Amendment.

Goodell said he has had no direct communication with Trump on the issue. He acknowledged that the anger by many fans has made the league’s handling of the matter a key issue to sponsors and those networks that televise NFL games. Goodell cited six or seven NFL players continuing to participate in protests during the anthem.

I understand what our fans feel about this issue, Goodell said. And we feel the same way about the importance of our flag, about the importance of patriotism. And I believe our players feel that way.

We’re just being cautious more than anything.

The matchup that matters most: Porcello versus the top of the Houston lineup. In Game 1, Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve homered off Sale in the first. In Game 2, Carlos Correa hit a two-run homer in the first. In Game 3, the Astros scored three runs in the first, including Correa’s two-run homer. Is this a bad time to mention Porcello led the majors in home runs allowed?

The prediction: We should get the first close game of the series, with Houston’s ability to hit the long ball off Porcello an obvious advantage. Astros win 6-4.

Campbell got the 2011 Oakland Raiders off to a 4-2 start before suffering a season-ending collarbone injury. Oakland head coach Hue Jackson, who now holds that same position in Cleveland, promptly traded with Cincinnati for Carson Palmer, effectively ending Campbell’s days in the Bay Area.

The Lakers’ Australian recruit Andrew Bogut also sat out the pre-season game with a groin injury, but he says he will be ready for next week’s regular season opener.

“It’s just a little tweak,” Bogut told AAP.

“We’re just being cautious more than anything.

“If it was a playoff game I’d be right to go but it’s just one of those things that I have to be more careful right now because of the pre-season.”

Lakers’ rookie star Lonzo Ball also missed the game to rest an ankle injury.

In other pre-season games Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Denver Nuggets 96-86, the Orlando Magic outlasted Patty Mills’ San Antonio Spurs 103-98, the Chicago Bulls trumped the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-94, the Toronto Raptors were too good for the Detroit Pistons 116-94 and in the latest international exhibition the Indiana Pacers beat Haifa Maccabi Haifa 108-89.ravens_009
