With quarterback Jake Locker set to undergo season-ending foot surgery this week, the Tennessee Titans need more arms to fill their roster. The team addressed that issue on Monday by signing free agent John Skelton, according to The Tennessean.
Predictably, it didn’t work. Lions punter Sam Martin tried an off tackle run. He fumbled it at the three-yard line.
Three points there would have given the Lions a seven-point lead. A wider margin that it looks given Pittsburgh’s offensive struggles in this game. Did we mention it was raining? It was.
On the other hand, turning the ball over at the three-yard line still leaves 97 yards for the Steelers to drive. No sure thing. But given the back-and-forth in this one, Detroit’s best bet was to take the points here.
The Steelers managed to go the length of the field and score a touchdown. That gave Pittsburgh a 30-27 lead.
Oakland Raiders – Johnny Manziel, Quarterback, Texas A&M: The Raiders still have a lot of building to do, despite what a string of early-season wins led some to believe. Terrelle Pryor’s success was short-lived. While he still has a chance to grow into a starting quarterback, his 2017 season was still mostly inconsistent. Enter another mobile quarterback, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, to give the Raiders a new direction at the position. If and when he declares for the 2017 draft, Manziel is going to have a chance to be drafted high. He’s improved his mechanics as a passer, isn’t throwing from his back foot as often, and his arm strength has gotten better as a result. Manziel will be one of the biggest question marks in the draft, but his talent is tough to ignore for quarterback-needy teams. Plus, who doesn’t want to see him celebrate on stage?
The Houston Texans held a tentative 17-14 lead over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but then the Cardinals turned up the pressure. After passing for 159 yards in the first half, Case Keenum managed just 42 yards in the second, and the Cardinals pulled away for a 27-24 win in Glendale.

Keenum looked to be on track for another strong performance. He has been a pleasant surprise for the Texans since taking over for Matt Schaub. Keenum faced a heavy pass rush in the second half, however, and was never able to regain his first-half rhythm. For the game, he was sacked three times, twice in the second half.
Seattle made it five straight wins with a 33-10 win at Atlanta. The Seahawks continue to sit on top of the NFC and now have a 2.5-game lead over San Francisco in the NFC West. New Orleans kept pace with Seattle, blowing out the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. The biggest move atop the NFC came in the NFC North where Detroit took over sole possession of the division lead with its win against Chicago. With the Packers also losing, Detroit has a full game advantage.
Carolina improved to 6-3 with a 10-9 win at San Francisco and jumped the 49ers in the wild card standings in the process. Both teams are 6-3 and remain in the hunt for their respective division titles. San Francisco plays New Orleans this week in what could be a huge game for playoff seeding.
Limited Womens Rey Maualuga Jersey Several teams remain on the cusp of contention. Arizona is just one game back in the wild card race, despite playing in the difficult NFC West. Chicago and Green Bay are both one game back in both the NFC North and the wild card. Philadelphia is tied with Dallas for the NFC East lead, but the Cowboys currently hold the tiebreaker based on a head-to-head win earlier in the season. The two teams will play again in Week 17. Even at 3-6, New York and Washington are not out of the NFC East race.
Heinz Field was looking rough on Sunday so they covered up some divots with painted sand. That’s the same thing that was done on some divots at FedEx Field in the 2017 playoffs when Robert Griffin III and Chris Clemons tore their ACLs.
Big Ben may be pushing for a trade in the offseason, but he and Le’Veon Bell still pushed the Steelers to a win over the reeling Bills. The NFL’s oldest secondary — which is really never a good thing to be — got the week off against E.J. Manuel, but had best stock up on Geritol/Bengay/Viagra with Megatron coming to town next Sunday. Actually, the Viagra is probably a bad idea. Forget I said that.
Many people doubted Jimmy Johnson when he took over the Miami Hurricanes in the early-’80s, but eventually he became one of the most successful college coaches of the era. In 1989, his buddy Jerry Jones asked him if he wanted to coach the Cowboys and he obliged but things again didn’t start out smoothly.
In fact, the team lost five games by six points or less, and you could argue were good enough to go 7-9 or better. But just like Johnson and Aikman, Walsh was in for quite a treat with his rookie quarterback.

â€” Out of 44 coaches to at least partially lead a team during a 14-or-more loss season, 35 never became a head coach again after their time with the team was over.
â€” The coaches spent an average of 3.25 years with that respective team, but that number is bouyed by a few great coaches and really doesn’t represent how bad most of their career records really were. Who were the coaches?
The Colts bolstered their pass rush Friday by agreeing to terms with Jabaal Sheard, according to ESPN.
The NFL quarterback, who is trying to get his career back on track, was first linked to the model after a Miami getaway in December.
When you find a girl as amazing as I did that saved me from where I was in my life, you absolutely put a ring on it, Manziel told TMZ.
Manziel posted a cryptic tweet Friday night about how happy he was, his first tweet in more than a month.
In the insular world of big league American baseball, the international appeal of the WBC still was a tough sell this year to teams and players understandably preoccupied with their paying jobs. The quality of the U.S. roster has been the biggest obstacle in getting American fans to take the WBC seriously.
Game Kids Trae Waynes Jersey Yet Clark says many more players appreciated the WBC’s unique appeal after watching this tournament. Shortly after the opening games, he began getting calls and texts from players who wished they had taken advantage of the chance.
The opportunity to wear your country across your chest is something, particularly if you haven’t experienced it before, Clark said.
While the U.S. works on the proper formula for success, other nations are generating enormous benefits from the WBC. Puerto Rico is the latest team to get the bump after its charismatic collection of dyed-blond stars reached the final without losing a game.
NFL owners, general managers and coaches will gather next week in Phoenix for the annual league meetings. McKay said the committee will show a video containing four or five instances that could have resulted in ejections or suspensions last season. The committee’s hope is to curb the hits through a renewed threat of stiffer discipline without having to actually implement it.

Perry enjoyed a breakout season as an edge pass rusher after being a steady run stopper early in his career. He turns only 27 in April, so he is hitting his prime as a more complete defender who fits Green Bay is scheme too well to let go.
Moore visited LSU the day before the New Orleans camp on a beautiful 75-degree spring day. It was important for Moore to meet the new coaching staff.
It was real good, Moore said. Good to go up there and put a name with a face with the new coaching staff. I got to update myself on their campus, and update myself on LSU.
They told me they have six receivers on scholarship right now, and they want to have 10 total, and to play four at a time. If I was to go there, there is no redshirt for me, especially since coach Joseph told me with my skill set, there is no way they Would do that. I Would have to earn it, but I have the opportunity.
From Glazer is comments, it doesn’t sound like they could tell what was under their arm but it is suspicious that they came in with nothing and left with something.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo told FOX26 they found the suspect in Mexico.
The HPD criminal intelligence division detectives identified a suspect in Mexico, Acevedo said. I’m proud to say as a result of their hard work, and with the assistance of the FBI and Mexican authorities, we believe we’ve recovered the jersey. Further authentication is in process (of being completed).
Acevedo added federal charges are pending against the suspect. The NFL described the suspect as a credentialed member of the international media. Glazer claimed this person posed as a member of the media, and was not actually affiliated with anyone.
Free-agent swingman Omri Casspi has come to terms on a rest-of-the-season contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to league sources.
The Timberwolves entered Sunday’s play sitting 4? games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference and have an immediate need for help on the wing after losing Nemanja Bjelica to a season-ending foot injury on top of Zach LaVine’s season-ending knee tear in early February.
Casspi was acquired by New Orleans from Sacramento as part of the DeMarcus Cousins trade and had been earmarked for a significant role by the Pelicans, only to suffer a broken right thumb in his first game with his new team. The Pelicans waived Casspi immediately since he was initially expected to miss four to six weeks, but ESPN.com reported earlier this week that Casspi has been cleared to resume basketball activities ahead of schedule.
The newspaper noted that Sayers barely spoke during a seven-hour visit, but his family says that other times he can carry on “halting” conversations.
His family must be vigilant about Sayer’s safety these days. Ardie Sayers said that her husband tried to wash his hands with carpet cleaner a few days earlier.
“It keeps you on your toes,” she told the newspaper.
Limited Mens Robin Lopez Jersey She said that another wife of a former player told her: “Don’t let him out of your sight.”
The family said that people they trusted took advantage of Sayers’ situation.
“You have people who have a little less moral stature than you would like to see in society,” Sayers’ brother Roger told the newspaper in a phone interview.
Limited Mens Troy Brouwer Jersey Sayers was born in Wichita, Kansas, and was an All-American at Kansas. He was a first-round pick of the Chicago Bears in 1965 and was a four-time Pro Bowler. He once scored six touchdowns in a single game.
Yet he’s losing touch with all those great achievements.

Washington slipped on the floor, and immediately went down, screaming in pain. He was able to put weight on the leg, but buried his face in a towel as he was being tended to by trainers on the bench.
Washington had a great first half, with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting for the Gaels. Oregon was able to close out the half strong, taking a 55-37 lead into the locker room.
Luckily for the Gaels, he would return for the second half of the game.

UCLA ended the season as the AP’s No. 3 team, and they’ve been led to this point by star freshman Lonzo Ball. The probable one-and-done is contributing 14.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game, a testament to how versatile his game already is. Fellow freshman T.J. Leaf is adding 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per contest. Steve Alford’s team boasts non-conference wins over Kentucky, Long Beach State, and Ohio State, and they finished out the regular season on a nine-game winning streak.
Back on the East Coast, AP No. 2 team Villanova looks strong again, and the Wildcats of Philadelphia have every reason to expect a No. 1 seed this year. They fought from a No. 2 line in last year’s tournament to win the title on a dramatic buzzer-beater three, and despite being forced to play more small-ball lineups, Jay Wright led his club to a 28-3 overall regular season record. The return of Josh Hart for his senior year has seen the burly guard average 18.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game this season, and he leads the Wildcats into their campaign to repeat as national champions.
Kentucky is again stacked with blue chip talent, and it’s a pair of freshman guards, De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk, who’ve stepped up to lead the way for John Calipari. Roy Williams’ Tar Heels are also riddled with talent up and down the roster, and his team carries the further memory of losing in such crushing fashion in last year’s tournament final. Juniors Joel Berry and Justin Jackson are surely smarting from 2016’s championship game, a strong motivating factor as they enter the tournament.
After scrubbing the field again, I made a few changes, usually of a seed line or so. I attempted to try to be as consistent with my reasoning for placing teams as possible, and hopefully the Selection Committee did the same. We will know soon enough and I’ll be back later Sunday with a review of my performance and the real bracket.
