Marshawn Lynch Jersey was dancing on the sideline.

It was impossible to walk or drive around Las Vegas this week and not have that hashtag engrained in your mind. It was everywhere. On billboards, hotel exteriors and hand-written signs taped to fences. It has become a common hashtag for a community to rally around following adversity but Las Vegas isn’t your typical community as a tourist oasis for many.

Most people who pass through for the weekend view it as a lovable punchline, a place where you quote lines from “The Hangover” and “Swingers” and promise yourself you’ll never return — before you invariably do a few months later.

Here’s how a perfect storm of calamity would have to unfold for Embiid to earn any less than the full $146.5 million: Across each of the final four seasons of the extension, ending with the 2022-23 season, the 76ers could waive Embiid for a financial benefit if he’s lost because of a contractually agreed-upon injury that causes him to miss 25 or more regular-season games and if he plays fewer than 1,650 minutes, league sources said.

“I wouldn’t try to sum it up in a word; I wouldn’t try,” Del Rio told reporters. “We’re working hard at it. We’re close, but no cigar.”

It doesn’t even look as close as Del Rio makes it out to be. Amari Cooper (28 yards, five catches) and Jared Cook (14 yards, two catches) were again missing in action. Both of Carr’s interceptions were more the fault of the intended receivers — although, again, Carr’s timing was off. Lynch cooled off in the second half after an effective first half.

A 2-4 record, last place in the AFC West and the specter of a four-game deficit to the Chiefs in mid-October — none of these seemed possible going into the season, and assuredly were not after two weeks.

Now it’s possible that the team that started 2-0 is the one that couldn’t be believed, and the one that has played since is the real thintigers_009

Back injury to sideline Tyler Eifert for multiple weeks

Posted on by

Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert is expected to miss multiple weeks while recovering from his back injury, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Eifert does not need back surgery at this time, the source said.

On Thursday, coach Anthony Lynn chose to keep Gordon out of practice because of his knee. Fully padded, he rode a stationary bike on the side at the start of practice. However, Gordon was a limited participant in practice on Friday and was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Gordon missed the final three games of the regular season last year with knee and hip issues. During his rookie season, he also missed the final two games with a left knee injury that required microfracture surgery in the offseason.

After getting checked out by the Chargers’ medical staff, Gordon returned to the field midway through the third quarter.

Six-team playoffs in Weeks 14-16: In this format, the top two teams earn a bye in Week 14, while the next four teams battle in a pair of wild-card matchups. In Week 15, the two Week 14 winners face the top two seeds, who were on a Week 14 bye, in the semifinals. Those winners then face off in the Week 16 championship game. This format rewards the teams that had the best regular season, but it also allows in two extra teams and gives squads that get hot late in the season to make a run to the title — just like we often see in the NFL.

Offline: There really is no doubt that the most fun you can have is to get your friends, family or co-workers together in a room and do a live draft. You can’t beat the laughs, trash talk and the feeling of being a general manager making selections at the NFL draft. If you go that route, then choose Offline draft, enter the rosters following the draft and play your season out on ESPN.a (3)

How to bet Oakland-Washington

Posted on by

ESPN Chalk’s NFL Vegas experts (Phil Steele and Erin Rynning) are here to provide analysis and best bets for Sunday night’s tilt between the Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins. John Parolin of ESPN Stats & Information breaks down the best prop bet.

Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts, right shoulder: Nothing new to report here, as Luck remains out of practice. Until he returns to practice, there’s literally nothing to see. Jacoby Brissett will be the starter again.

Will Fuller V, WR, Houston Texans, shoulder: Although Fuller remains sidelined for games, he is increasing his practice activity. Fuller was involved in limited practices daily and is gradually approaching a return from the broken collarbone he suffered during the preseason.

Corey Davis, WR, Tennessee Titans, hamstring: Davis dealt with a hamstring injury in the preseason and aggravated it during the Week 2 game. He was able to return to the field in the fourth quarter, but his production was limited. Davis did not practice all week and will sit out this week’s contest against the Seahawks.

Timmons was made inactive for the game against the Chargers, snapping his streak of 101 consecutive NFL starts, and he was suspended indefinitely last week.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase hasn’t discussed details of Timmons’ situation with the media, besides saying that the linebacker was dealing with a personal matter that affected the team.

The Eagles’ defense made up for the miscues.

Posted on by

“That’s tough on the secondary, any time the quarterback can just extend plays and find guys down field,’’ he said. “I mean, they have to cover guys for a long time and that could be really frustrating.’’

“He is a physical guy. His eyes are always downfield,’’ Eagles coach Doug Pederson said — while handing out praise somewhat grudgingly with some of the offense’s mistakes in mind. “We were able to make big plays once we were able to break the pocket.”

Wentz was not flawless. One Eagles turnover came via Washington’s pass rush, which created a deflection that Ryan Kerrigan turned into an interception he returned 24 yards for a touchdown. The other was a badly overthrown lateral to Agholor on a gimmick play out of the backfield.

The Eagles’ defense made up for the miscues. Wentz got the offense out of at least as much trouble, enough times to bring back memories of past Eagles escape artists.

The obvious drawback would seemingly be injuries, but Bennett says neither he nor coaches are worried about that at all. And the Seahawks certainly don’t seem concerned, awarding Bennett with a three-year extension worth $31.5 million that is due to keep him in Seattle through the 2020 season.

The injury that did keep Bennett out of the lineup for a while in 2016 was a knee problem, but the pass rusher now enters the postseason healthy and ready to fully contribute. Don’t expect to see much funny dancing in the team’s playoff run, though.

“You don’t want to get no fines,” Bennett said. “You get a sack, you get back up. You don’t want to give up no yards — ticky tack or nothing like that. It’s all about getting those yards if you want to win.”

Bennett earned a spot in the Pro Bowl for a second straight year, finishing the season with five sacks in 11 games.
