Tyreek Hill returns the punt to the Kansas City 43 and the Chiefs will start their drive trailing by six with 1:40 remaining.

The Chiefs prevent Pittsburgh from moving the chains after Roethlisberger throws an incomplete pass on third down. The Steelers will be forced to punt, giving the ball back to Kansas City with 1:59 to play and a chance to take the lead.

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who began the anthem protest in August 2016, is not expected to be among the group of players meeting with league officials.

Kaepernick said he wanted to draw attention to police brutality against people of color and other racial injustices across the country. He gained support from his peers, but remains unsigned since opting out of his contract in March. He filed a grievance against the NFL, alleging owners have colluded to keep him off a team.

Lockhart said Monday he “is not aware of any consideration” of Kaepernick’s grievance to be on Tuesday’s agenda.

That’s because of the excitement that hovers over the Warriors and the special run they’re embracing.

“I think because it’s just so free-flowing,” Green said. “I think the game of basketball kind of first grew in China in streetball. And [our style is] more streetball than you’d normally get in the NBA. So I think that’s why it resonates so much here. I think it also helps that Steph is kind of your everyday-sized guy. Where [fans] kind of get the mindset of, you could be that guy. So I think that also helps as well.”

President Donald Trump has called on NFL owners since last month to fire players who do not stand for the anthem, saying their protest “disrespects the flag” and the country.tigers_070

The NFL needs to do more about it, too.

Posted on by

A lot more. Pro football will always be a dangerous place, and you didn’t need to watch what happened to Odell Beckham Jr. in the Meadowlands to remember that. But just as the sign in Green Bay’s locker room said, the brain is the body’s most vital organ. The league has to protect it at all costs.

Asked by ESPN.com if he favors a mandatory missed game for concussed players, Packers president Mark Murphy, once a Super Bowl-winning safety for Washington, said: “I think it has to be a medical decision. Just talking to the neurologist, each concussion is different. Players come back differently. I think it has to be a medical decision just like any other injury.”

Green Bay goes three-and-out and takes just 59 seconds off the game clock. The Cowboys will start their drive on their own 11 with a two-point lead and 10:37 remaining.

Field goal Dallas. The Cowboys drive to the Green Bay 25, but fail to score after an incompletion by Prescott on third down. Dan Bailey enters on fourth down and converts on a 43-yard field goal to put Dallas back in front, 24-22.

Touchdown Packers. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Green Bay takes the lead. Rodgers finds Jordy Nelson wide open in the end zone for a 10-yard score as the Packers move in front, 22-21.

He had just beaten the Dallas Cowboys with his second touchdown catch, this one in the back of the end zone in the final seconds of Sunday’s matchup, and Adams was giving reporters a clear-eyed account of the process. Aaron Rodgers had thrown him the same pass on the previous play, a pass that fell incomplete, and the receiver returned to the huddle and told the quarterback to run it again.x (11)

With Hurricane Irma gone, Jags say they will host Titans as planned

Posted on by

The Jaguars will play host to the Tennessee Titans at EverBank Field at 1 p.m. ET Sunday as scheduled, the team and Jacksonville mayor Lenny Curry announced Tuesday evening.

Dolphins president Tom Garfinkel tweeted that Hard Rock Stadium has been declared structurally sound, clearing the way for the Dolphins and Hurricanes to play games there.

The Tampa Bay Bucs, after consulting with the NFL and the Tampa Sports Authority, will play Sunday’s game against the Bears at Raymond James Stadium as scheduled.

In addition, owner Shad Khan is donating $1 million to Florida’s First Coast Relief Fund in the wake of Hurricane Irma, which caused massive damage and flooding in the Jacksonville area and across the state. The Jaguars are donating 5,000 tickets to area first responders and residents impacted by the hurricane.

“This is not simply about football,” Curry said. “This is about bringing our city and our community together. This is about getting back to normal operations. Jacksonville was on the way up before this and continues to be on the way up.”

The Chargers have shown some fight on the road in recent seasons with a 10-4 ATS record in their last 14 road games and a 5-2 ATS record in their last seven road games against Denver.

You guys beat the Cowboys twice last year.

New England enjoys the NFL’s largest average weekly advantage at QB, defined as the difference between Brady’s average Tier figure (1.0) and the averages for New England’s opponents (2.82). It’s tough finding likely defeats on the Patriots’ schedule. I had them going 12-0 before losing back-to-back road games during a six-day stretch as part of a three-game road trip in December.

Second, DraftKings is full PPR scoring, so I also want to pick out running backs who have some involvement in their team’s passing game. Backs that play first and second down but don’t rack up any catches have a much tougher path to reaching value.

He’s a competitor, always going 110 percent. He’s proved why he should be one of the highest-paid tight ends. Every time I lined up against him, he was giving it to me, and I had to make sure I gave it back. His route-running isn’t superb, but he gets open somehow, and he has great hands. He goes up and attacks the ball, not letting it fall into his hands so that a DB can make a play on it.

You played against Dak Prescott in college. Is he legit or a product of a great situation?

He’s definitely gotten smarter coming into the league. He’s always been a great leader and competitor. When I was a junior at Alabama, he took a [Mississippi State] team that was not even on the map and he got them to No. 1 in the rankings. And the same thing happened when he came into the NFL — he almost went undefeated. He has that type of leadership, that background that says “I’m not going to settle.”download

Who will be the NFL’s next highest-paid player?

Posted on by

It’s almost a foregone conclusion these days that any quality signal caller who gets a contract extension will become the league’s highest-paid player. That happened with Matthew Stafford on Monday, but the state of the current quarterback market means he won’t be the top-paid player for long.

The Rams’ front office — a contingency that includes COO Kevin Demoff, general manager Les Snead and senior assistant Tony Pastoors — flew to Atlanta on Wednesday to meet with Donald’s representatives at CAA but didn’t necessarily come any closer to an agreement. Snead previously said it would “probably be a safe assumption” that Donald needed to report by the end of last week — or at least by Monday — to have much of a chance of playing in the opener.

Donald is no longer subject to the $40,000-a-day fines, but he probably accumulated at least $1.4 million in fines for not showing up throughout the preseason and in training camp. Those fines tend to be picked up by the team on new contracts.

“Guys are ready to go, and we’re getting a plan in place, and the preparation goes on,” McVay said. “Fortunately, we’ve got a bunch of guys that we feel confident in that are ready to step up. Our message continues to remain the same: If he’s here, great. We’ll accept him back with open arms. But in the meantime, we’ve got to get ready to play a football game. And we know the Colts are getting ready as well.”
