Germany upsets Canada, to play OAR for men’s hockey gold

It has been a rough few days for Canada at its best Winter Olympics ever because of struggles in the two sports that are most tightly woven into its national identity.

I don’t know, forward Andrew Ebbett said. Just a couple penalties there early on. We were in the box the whole second period. It’s tough to win a hockey game when you’re killing penalties that whole time. We maybe needed two, three, five more minutes there at the end maybe to tie it up, but it was too late.

Canada outshot Germany 15-1 in the third period but couldn’t climb all the way back after digging a deep hole. It started with high-sticking and faceoff violation penalties 36 seconds apart and unraveled when Macek scored.

The 49ers are unlikely to re-sign Carlos Hyde. For Kyle Shanahan’s second season, then, it’s not ideal to trust second-year players Matt Breida and Joe Williams plus a rookie in the backfield.

With the team feeling more like it can win now with Jimmy Garoppolo, there should be a desire for an explosive-yet-steady element in the running game. Lewis has good familiarity with Garoppolo from their days together in New England, and with Lewis possessing some of the same skills as those of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, he should remind Shanahan of the rushing/receiving boon he had in Atlanta.

San Francisco also is right in between Indianapolis and Tampa Bay with ample salary-cap space at more than $74 million.

Super Bowl 2019: Where and when is it?

After a successful venture to the great white north, the Super Bowl is returning to a familiar setting for 2019. Super Bowl 53 will take place in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, giving the Falcons a chance to earn home-field advantage in the biggest game of the year.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter wrote Wednesday morning that Robert Kraft made a late push, which included sweetening his deal, but there was more than that:
Troy Brouwer Youth Jersey
Authentic Youth Corey Liuget Jersey In the past 48 hours, Patriots owner Robert Kraft began talking with McDaniels and ultimately wound up sweetening his contract, helping to entice McDaniels, who had yet to sign a contract with the Colts, to remain in New England, a source said.

But this wasn’t a decision about money. The truth is, McDaniels, 41, has been vacillating on this decision throughout the interview process, ever since meeting with the Colts on wild-card weekend. Dmitry Kulikov Jersey It is the reason a second meeting with Colts officials and team owner Jim Irsay was held. McDaniels was trying to get comfortable with the idea of taking his family out of New England and moving to Indianapolis, sources said.

The Eagles lead the Patriots after one quarter, 9-3. Philadelphia scored a touchdown on its second drive but missed the extra point, handing someone at your party an uncommon squares victory. If you have the square corresponding to 3 for New England and 9 for Philadelphia for the first quarter in your squares game, you can collect your winnings from your friends and family.

Super Bowl squares is a simple game to play. There aren’t too many rules you have to follow, and everyone can participate, even if they’re not a football expert. If you’re still new to the game and already forgot some of the rules, you’re in luck. We listed them for you right here.

McDaniels has been, statistically, one of the most successful offensive coordinators of the past decade. Of course, it’s easy to look good when you’ve got human cheat codes like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski on the roster. In his last six seasons, his offenses have never ranked lower than fourth in the NFL in total scoring.

Some 锟斤拷 a select few 锟斤拷 indeed look at Rippon with disdain. As I’ve written about the outspoken gay Olympian over the last week, I’ve also noticed some nasty messages directed his way. Usually they’re completely uninformed or totally false claims about what he said or who he is.

Kids Evander Kane Jersey There’s no uniting these people. That they have taken aim at Rippon with such venom is rather a powerful statement of Rippon’s achievements, and the hope he has brought so many others.

For the rest of us 锟斤拷 young, old, gay, straight, men, women 锟斤拷 it has been Rippon’s willingness to be his true self, and express himself however he wanted, that won over America.

Kids Ronnie Lott Jersey You guys expect a lot, Price said of the Boston fishbowl. You’ve had a lot of championship teams. The Patriots have won a lot, the Celtics in ’07 or ’08, the Bruins. You guys expect a lot, and guys coming into Boston know that.

Asked what advice he would give to a Red Sox-bound free agent such as Martinez, Price kept it simple.

Go out there and win, he said. Winning cures everything.

Like Goldschmidt, Lamb lines up to lose around five big flies. He shouldn’t lose as many points in batting average, but he’ll still drop. Here’s where he differs from his star teammate in terms of rankings. As you progress down the picks of a draft, the difference in potential between adjacent players is largest at the top, decreasing between consecutive picks throughout the draft. The best analogy is the NFL draft. A first and a fourth for a second and third is not an even trade. In fact, the league office sends each team a matrix, showing the expected value Authentic Patrice Bergeron Jersey of each pick so deals can be fair. The repercussion for Lamb is even though he loses only $4 of projected value, $1 less than Goldschmidt, he drops over 50 places in drafts.

As you can tell from the Saad quote in the introduction, the losing has started to get to the Blackhawks. It’s a stark contrast from the never say never attitude that led to countless comebacks during their heyday.

One of the paths to returning the 5-0 form must be getting rookie running back Kareem Hunt more involved again.

Derwin James, SS, Florida State. The Packers drafted Josh Jones in the second round in 2017 to take over for Morgan Burnett after the latter left in free agency, but Jones didn’t put enough on tape to just be handed the job this offseason. Considering the great value the Packers get with James here, relegating Jones to a reserve role long term makes sense. James should be a great fit as an in-the-box safety to complement Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the Packers’ defensive backfield.

After a scorching start, Hunt hasn’t been as effective in recent games. Injuries along the offensive line haven’t helped, but Hunt ran the ball just nine times in a Week 9 loss to Dallas, and that number must be increased.

One thing in the Chiefs’ favor is their remaining schedule, which includes only one team that currently has a winning record. Four of their opponents in their first nine games had winning records.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville. It’s possible the Cardinals could have their QB of the future locked up before the draft, but if they decline to hand a big-money contract to someone in free agency, they should be positioned to grab someone in the second-tier of signal-callers this year after just missing out on the top three names in the last draft. Jackson seems to be a polarizing prospect that could come off the board in a wide rage of possibilities, but if no one ahead of this spot falls in love with the former Heisman winner, I think this could be his floor.

HBO Real Sports correspondent Jon Frankel in 2012 produced an up-close-and-extremely personal documentary with former NFL and Alabama running back/battering ram Kevin Turner, who was then 42 and two years into dying the hard way — steadily and inexorably from ALS. ESPN aired the doc as part of its “30 for 30” series.

Frankel and Turner, who died last year, remained close. Tuesday at 10 p.m. on HBO, Frankel’s down-to-the-end-and-a-bit-beyond post-mortem appears. Powerful stuff.

We could use a high-ranking, sports-minded politician to protect his sports-minded constituents from all forms of unholy money-grabs, no?

36. Geno Smith, quarterback, Jets (30): He managed to get through training camp and the preseason without getting his jaw broken by a teammate, so Smith already is ahead of the game this year. Smith, who won the battle with Bryce Petty to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick, also has a hate-hate relationship with Jets fans that’s always entertaining.

37. Laremy Tunsil, guard, Dolphins (NR): Normally, a rookie guard — the sport’s most faceless position — would not be in the conversation when it comes to interesting personalities. But after Tunsil’s amazing, can’t-look-away plummet on draft night (who can forget the sight of him in a gas-mask bong?), leaving the former Ole Miss star out of the conversation is unthinkable.

How a former NFL prodigy drank his way out of football

Montee Ball was a Heisman Trophy finalist, an NCAA record-holder and an NFL second-round draft pick, and yet the running back’s promising career flamed out faster than Peyton Manning’s crawled to an end.

Three years after playing his last game with the Broncos, Ball has pinned his downfall on a dangerous bout of alcoholism that began during his junior year at Wisconsin.

I failed to use my platform to help others and to use the NFL as a steppingstone in life. I surrounded myself with bad people, not on the team but in the city. I was na?ve enough to believe I had all the answers. I’m still kicking myself in the butt for that.

Ball’s rebellious attitude seeped into almost every professional interaction, including when Broncos running backs coach Eric Studesville confronted him about his drinking problem.

Womens Sonny Gray Jersey NFL and college football leagues in recent years have toughened rules against players who make illegal hits.

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger has been suspended by his employer for suggesting in a radio interview last week that the Eagles should put a bounty on Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who currently leads the league in rushing yards, to motivate their players to intentionally hurt him. Then, they might have a better chance of beating their NFC East rival.

Video games are likewise stealing away youth from traditional sports, stats show. Nearly two-thirds of US households have at Connor Hellebuyck Womens Jersey least one person who plays three or more hours of video games a week, according to the Entertainment Software Association. A 2017 report by the group puts the average age of these gamers at 35.

Two years ago, an MLB survey found that playing a sport between the ages of 12 and 17 was more important to becoming a fan than watching or attending a game.

As MLB commissioner Rob Manfred summarized the results in a Wall Street Journal interview: The biggest predictor of fan avidity as an adult is whether you played the game.

Doug Pederson, also in his second year with the Eagles, not only embraces the idea of using analytics to make decisions, he talks to members of the team’s analytics department during games, according to ESPN.

When the Eagles were down 3-0 to the Falcons last week, they faced a fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line. A conservative coach would have taken the three points to tie the game. Pederson’s staff clearly gave him the green light, because the Eagles went for it and scored their only touchdown in a 15-10 victory.

But what we found is, there’s been so many decisions over time that are too conservative for the odds of maximizing your chance to win at the opportunity.

Gettleman might make things work and restore the Giants to their accustomed level of success.

WR Allen Hurns vs. Patriots CB Eric Rowe: When the Jaguars spread the field for Bortles, he needs to avoid forcing it to Westbrook, Lee or Cole. This is a good week to get Hurns going in the slot, given another savvy possession veteran receiver, the Titans’ Eric Decker, ripped the Patriots for six catches and 85 yards on seven targets last week.

It’s been another injury-riddled year for Hurns, but Jacksonville can’t hold him back from being a key part of the game plan against the overmatched Rowe.

RG A.J. Cann vs. Patriots DT Malcom Brown: While the Malcolm on the outside will contain Lee, this Malcom in the middle can be a huge force in blowing up the running game at the point of attack. There is a big drop-off from Linder and Omameh to Cann in Jacksonville’s interior run-blocking for Fournette.

It also is possible that the hiring of Gettleman could take the Giants out of the running for Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to fill their head coaching vacancy. Some within the league suspect that McDaniels wants to work with Patriots executive Nick Caserio or ESPN analyst Louis Riddick as his GM. The Giants interviewed Riddick but went with Gettleman, who formerly worked for Ernie Accorsi in the team’s front office. Accorsi assisted the Giants’ search.

But not everyone within the sport considers that a sure thing.

DT Malik Jackson: Much has been made about Tom Coughlin knowing how to beat the Patriots with a strong front four. But on a team full of younger players with little playoff experience, Jackson is the one who’s been on the field to defeat New England twice in the AFC championship game while in Denver.

Jackson was a beast in the games against Buffalo and Pittsburgh as Jacksonville’s savvy anchor. Campbell and Ngakoue have the double-digit sacks, but Jackson can have a bigger overall impact vs. run and pass Sunday.

He’s as competitive as they come; he just doesn’t rub people the wrong way when he expresses that competitiveness. He’s also a better athlete than people think — just think back to the Helmet Catch in Super Bowl XLII, where he was only able to get the ball off after escaping certain doom in the pocket.chargers_083

A two-year starter at cornerback and a four-year starter as the team’s punt returner, Stroman proved to be the Hokies’ most reliable defensive back and one of the best punt returners in the country. As a returner, Stroman offers rare short-area quickness and decisiveness in the open field. He sets up potential tacklers well, adjusting speed and accelerating in the open field.

That was pretty good, but not as good as Smith, the safety who also had a pair of interceptions and returned both for touchdowns of 44 and 50 yards, including one in the final seconds. Even linebacker Derrick Brooks would have a better choice, given his own 44-yard pick six in the fourth quarter and his Womens Yonder Alonso Jersey status as the best overall player on the defense. This is the danger you have when people start voting for MVP well before the final gun.

Insiders knew, however, Barnes would find a good job in the near future if he wanted one. Now in his third season at Tennessee, Barnes is reminding all that he’s the same guy who led the Longhorns to the Final Four in 2003, as well as three Elite Eight appearances, and won Big 12 coach of the year four times.

Last year, his Tennessee squad finished 3-7 after Jan. 31. Then he lost two of his top three scorers in the offseason. But his team’s r茅sum茅 in 2017-18 already includes wins over Purdue and Kentucky. The Vols are smarter and more efficient (38.3 percent from beyond the arc) this year. And if this continues, they’ll earn their first trip to the NCAA tournament since Cuonzo Martin led the program to the Sweet 16 in 2014.
