Eli Manning Ole Miss NCAA College Jersey

Spurrier was asked by a student why he hadn’t won against Eli Manning, who was at Ole Miss, after going undefeated against Tennessee’s Peyton Manning. His reaction drew some laughs from the crowd. (Spurrier was off to the NFL by the time Eli Manning had started any games against Florida and got back into college football after the younger Manning entered the draft). “Eli? When did I coach against Eli?”

9. Midway during the event, Spurrier was asked about former Florida linebacker James Bates’ impression of him: “On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give it about a 3. He tries. I give him an A for effort.”

10. Asked about his favorite golf hole, Spurrier revealed that he has hit six hole-in-ones in his life – and he shared a detailed story about one he hit during his first year on the job in Gainesville. “I can’t pick all six, can I? I’ll pick the longest one. … National Signing Day was Feb. 10. It was Feb. 3, one week until Signing Day. … Here I am, I was playing golf a week before signing day. No coach does that. I said, ‘Boys, we’ve got to keep this quiet. If we don’t win here at Florida, it’ll be a big story.’”

Men’s Basketball
The last time a team from the Pac-12 conference (or Pac-10) made it to the Final Four, Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook were teammates for Ben Howland’s last of three consecutive runs into the first weekend of April. That was 2008, nine years ago this season. In fact, no team from even west of Norman, OK has still been dancing when the field slims to four.

And none have won a national title since Lute Olson’s 1997 Arizona team.

With the Final Four being played in Arizona this year, is 2017 the year the Western drought ends?

Jon Wilner rates the chances of four final four contenders (and few more) from the Pac-12 and West Coast Conference.

4. UCLARecord: 23-3

RPI: 25

State of the Bruins: As dangerous offensively as any team in the country — four rotation players shoot 43 percent (or better) from 3-point range — and in possession of a singular talent (Lonzo Ball) capable of carrying his team to the biggest stage. But too many starters want no part of having to defend consistently.

Final Four prospects: Unlike the three teams listed above, the Bruins need favorable matchups in order to reach the semifinals. If they get sucked into a grinder early in the tournament … by a mini-Virginia, for example … that could be it.
More looking ahead to the tournament form Myron Medcalf at ESPN. He looks at which players, Kemba Walker-style, could will their teams with some obvious flaws to a championship with three weeks of dominating performance.

Top of the list? He’s got Lonzo Ball.

But the Bruins don’t defend like national champs. Only one champion (since 2001-02) has finished outside the top 20 in KenPom.com’s adjusted defensive efficiency rankings — North Carolina was 21st in 2008-09. The Bruins are ranked 126th. They do fly behind the game’s most exciting player, though. And he’s clutch. Ball led UCLA to that win over Oregon with Magic Johnson sitting in the front row. He. Does. Not. Feel. Pressure. Could UCLA lose its first game of the NCAA tournament? Sure. Could Ball carry the Bruins to a national title? Definitely.
Inside UCLA writer Clay Fowler breaks down how he voted in the AP rankings, where UCLA came in at #6 after a weekend sweep of the Oregon schools in Pauley Pavilion.

The Bruins so desperately needed Thursday’s win over then-No. 5 Oregon. Even with a win over the Ducks that looks like the best victory on its resume, UCLA is still struggling to get respect from the tournament committee, which projected it as a No. 4 seed.
Fowler voted the Bruins in the six spot, as well.

Comment: Too low for a team with Josh Rosen? Perhaps, but as with everything else these days concerning the Bruins, the Hotline is highly skeptical. Yes, Rosen is a huge talent, but he’s a huge talent coming off a shoulder injury — the best predictor of future injury risk is an actual injury — and has not exactly proven himself to be an ideal leader. Behind Rosen? Mike Fafaul is gone, leaving only a handful of freshmen as options. Devon Modster is the best bet for the No. 2 role.
I still haven’t figured out his enduring beef with Rosen…

The Browns need a quarterback, but draft experts don’t think that’s the direction Cleveland will go with the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

ESPN’s Todd McShay dropped his latest mock on Wednesday, and he has the Browns taking defensive end Myles Garrett out of Texas A&M with the first overall pick. Our own Dan Kadar and ESPN’s Mel Kiper agree in their most recent mocks.

To be fair, the Browns have plenty of needs on both sides of the ball, and 13 picks to work with in 2017 to fill them.

Cleveland has two first-round selections this year, thanks to a 1-15 regular season record and last year’s trade that allowed the Eagles to move up to select quarterback Carson Wentz with the second overall pick. That would free Cleveland up to take quarterback Mitch Trubisky out of North Carolina. McShay thinks that’s precisely what will happen.

Trubisky would be an especially interesting choice for the Browns at No. 13. He hails from Mentor, Ohio, which is just about 30 minutes from Cleveland. Trubisky’s bio on the University of North Carolina website claims that if he could play for any team in the NFL, Trubisky would choose the Cleveland Browns. This may be a perfect fit.

There are plenty of teams in addition to the Browns that need to address the quarterback position this spring, and there isn’t enough top quarterback talent to go around.

The 49ers will need to get a competent signal caller to run new head coach Kyle Shanahan’s dynamic scheme. McShay projects San Francisco will take Deshaun Watson with the second overall pick despite the fact that McShay doesn’t have a first-round grade on the Clemson product. Both Kiper and Kadar project Trubisky to the Niners with the second pick.

Here are some other trends from the latest mock drafts.

The experts vary on the top wide receivers in this draft
The big names in the 2017 draft at the receiver position are Mike Williams out of Clemson and Corey Davis from Western Michigan. Draft experts are all over the place in terms of where they project these playmakers to be selected.

In his latest mock, Kadar projects Williams to go to the Cardinals at No. 13 and Davis to go right behind him, to the Eagles following a trade with the Vikings to get to No. 14. McShay has Davis going fifth overall to the Titans, and expects Williams to go No. 11 to the Bills — who have found success with another Clemson product, Sammy Watkins, at wide receiver. Kiper thinks Williams goes to Tennessee with the fifth overall selection, and has Williams going much later, to the Chiefs with the 28th pick.

Two projected top 10 picks will be limited at the combine
Speaking of Davis, he suffered an ankle injury while preparing for the NFL Combine, and it may keep him out of participating. The injury kept Davis out of the Senior Bowl, but he’s likely to still attend the combine to go through physicals, psychological testing, and team interviews.

Ohio State’s Malik Hooker, a top safety prospect, won’t be able to participate in the combine as he continues to recover from core muscle and labrum surgeries. Like Davis, Hooker should participate in the interviews and physicals at the combine, but won’t be able to go through workouts at the event.

Both Kadar and McShay have Hooker projected to go to the Chargers with the seventh overall pick. Kiper believes Hooker will be selected by Washington at No. 17.

Other consensus picks
Kadar, McShay, and Kiper all believe the Panthers will go running back with the eighth overall pick. They’re just split on which running back that will be. Kadar believes that pick will be Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, while both McShay and Kiper project LSU’s Leonard Fournette to Carolina at No. 8.

The Titans need a cornerback, according to the experts, and Kadar and Kiper both think the 18th pick will send Alabama’s Marlon Humphrey to Tennessee. McShay is on board with the cornerback need, but believes the Titans’ pick will be Sidney Jones out of Washington.

There’s no question that the Broncos need to shore up the offensive line. For both Kadar and McShay, the expectation is that Denver will be the first team to take a tackle this year, with Wisconsin’s Ryan Ramczyk coming off the board at No. 20. Kiper has the Broncos selecting Utah’s Garett Bolles with that pick.

Cheap Authentic New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys From China Outlet

PHILADELPHIA — Anthony Davis and the Pelicans got going in a big way after a slow start.
Davis had 31 points and 16 rebounds to lead New Orleans over the Philadelphia 76ers 108-93 on Tuesday night in a matchup of struggling teams.
Davis scored 11 in New Orleans’ dominant second quarter and Terrence Jones finished with 17 points and 10 boards for the Pelicans, who avenged a Dec. 8 home loss to the 76ers while winning for only the third time in 11 games.
“We just tried to make this a statement game for us,” Davis said.
Perhaps they were trying too hard in the opening quarter. Davis went 1 for 8 from the field, New Orleans was 6 for 22 and the Pelicans trailed 23-15 after one.
“We just had to find our rhythm,” Davis said. “We just weren’t moving the ball in that first quarter.”
They figured things out from that point on.
Davis and Tim Frazier combined for 21 points in the second period as the Pelicans doubled up the Sixers 42-21 to take a 57-44 halftime lead.
Davis missed eight of his first nine shots but finished 12 for 30.
“My jump shot wasn’t on tonight, so I started going to the rim,” Davis said. “You just adjust to the game. I wasn’t going to keep settling. I just had to attack, and that’s it.”
New Orleans shot 55.6 per cent (15 for 27) from the field, including 66.7 per cent (4 for 6) from 3-point range, in the second. The 42 points represented the most in a quarter for the Pelicans all season.
“I thought we did a good job of just moving the basketball, moving people into space and taking the opportunities that were there,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said.
Ersan Ilyasova had 14 points to pace Philadelphia (7-21).
“That was the game,” 76ers coach Brett Brown said of the second quarter. “The other periods are acceptable.”
The Pelicans (10-20) built on their 13-point halftime lead and were up 18 early in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia got as close as 95-88 on Nik Stauskas’ 3-pointer with 5:25 left and had chances to pull closer, but misfired on two straight possessions.
Ultimately, the Sixers couldn’t overcome the second period.
“That’s a lot of points for one period,” Philadelphia’s Jahlil Okafor said. “That really got them going for the rest of the game.”
New Orleans shot 48 per cent (34 for 71) from the field after the opening 12 minutes.
NOEL, NOEL
Brown sat ineffective big men Joel Embiid and Okafor for most of the third quarter, instead inserting Nerlens Noel with 6:49 left in the period. Noel has been the odd man out at a crowded centre spot.
Brown said Sunday that Noel, a 2013 first-round draft pick who missed the first 23 games while recovering from knee surgery, won’t be part of the regular rotation while he sees if Embiid and Okafor are a fit on the floor together. Embiid and Okafor started alongside each other for the fourth straight game. Both had 11 points.
Fans gave Noel a rousing ovation when he entered and a louder cheer when he scored on a follow basket with 5:40 left in the third.
“I just really want to thank the fans for how they supported me,” Noel said. “That really meant a lot to me. I got the chills.”
Brown also was grateful for the crowd’s response.
“I can see why they would do that,” he said. “Nerlen plays hard, he plays defence, he’s appreciated by the city. It didn’t surprise me. I was glad they gave him a warm welcome.”
HOT HIELD
Pelicans rookie guard Buddy Hield scored 10 points and continued his strong shooting from outside. Hield was 2 for 2 from 3-point range and is shooting 52 per cent (25 for 48) from beyond the arc this month.
TIP-INS
Pelicans: Tyreke Evans (rest) didn’t play. … Solomon Hill returned to the lineup after missing two games for the birth of his daughter. Hill had two points and three rebounds in 33 minutes. … Jrue Holiday played his first four seasons with Philadelphia.
76ers: Stauskas returned from a one-game absence due to left knee soreness only to leave in the first quarter after going hard to the floor on a charge against Frazier. Stauskas returned in the third quarter. … Philadelphia finished 1-3 on a four-game homestand.
UP NEXT
Pelicans: Begin a five-game homestand by hosting Oklahoma City on Wednesday night.
76ers: Open a four-game Western road trip Friday night at Phoenix.

Cheap Wholesale Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys Online China Authentic

Whoever becomes the next coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars won’t be tied at the hip to Blake Bortles.

Anointed to find a successor for Gus Bradley — who was fired on Sunday — retained general manager Dave Caldwell made it clear that he remains open to a fresh opinion on Bortles, the struggling quarterback who Caldwell hand-selected with the No. 3 overall pick in 2014.

“There won’t be any mandates for anybody that comes in,” Caldwell said. “I think there (are) no untouchables in this organization, including myself and any player, no matter how they got here, whether it was through a draft pick or a high-priced contract.”

Caldwell interrupted the following the question, though, to back his young signal-caller.

“I do still believe in Blake very much,” Caldwell said. “But the head coach will have a lot of input into who the quarterback will be.”

For now, that means the embattled Bortles will remain under center heading into Sunday’s game with the Tennessee Titans.
Interim head coach Doug Marrone emphasized as much, saying: “I’m sticking with Blake.”

Bortles has been an on-field mess this season, displaying faulty mechanics and ranking 28th in Total QBR above just Ryan Fitzpatrick and Case Keenum. Serving as a dangerous turnover machine, the third-year passer has comprehensively regressed.

It’s a sticky situation that might scare off certain candidates, but Caldwell emphasized that no starting position is set in stone.

“I would encourage a different kind of perspective. I want the right perspective,” Caldwell said, adding of Bortles: “I know we’re very close to him and we hold him in high regard in terms of what we think his capabilities are. I still believe he has a very high ceiling, but I want to be realistic about it, too.”

Caldwell acknowledged that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if the next coach’s take on Bortles sits “somewhere in the middle,” saying: “Blake, yeah, he does have to play better, but we also have to play better around him, too.”

Caldwell knows that forcing a broken quarterback on a flock of candidates is no way to go about a coaching search. If Bortles can’t be fixed, it’s time for the Jaguars to start over at the most important position in sports.

Wholesale Cheap Houston Texans Jerseys Online

The Houston Texans took a big step toward a division title by sweeping the season series against the Colts with a 22-17 victory on Sunday. Here’s what we learned:

1. This was the formula for success for Houston to play around their struggling quarterback. On a day the Texans only had 131 yards passing, Lamar Miller keyed a 185-yard effort from the Texans ground game. Rotating with Alfred Blue (55 yards), Miller found big holes all afternoon against a depleted Colts defense.
2. This game showed the Colts’ many limitations on a day where Andrew Luck was not at his best. Luck was hit a ton and turned the ball over three times, although only one of those turnovers was his fault — a particularly ugly interception where he tried to force a pass. Colts receivers other than T.Y. Hilton failed to make tough catches all day and the Colts didn’t trust their running game. (Frank Gore had 10 rushes for 41 yards.) These looked like two teams lucky to be in any playoff race.

A dejected Luck after the game: “Disappointed in myself.”

3. Benardrick McKinney made a terrific play on the Colts’ final offensive play, recognizing a screen pass attempt on fourth-and-one near midfield. McKinney, Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney have been excellent all year and came through Sunday, especially Clowney. Playing through an injury, Clowney hit Andrew Luck on one interception, forced a fumble, had three QB hits and drew a big holding penalty. The Texans had 13 QB hits (but only one sack) as they won the battle up front on both sides.
4. While Brock Osweiler was his usual depressing self for most of the game, give him some credit for key throws on Houston’s fourth-quarter field goal drive which took 6:19 off the clock. If you only watched the fourth quarter of Colts-Texans games this year, you’d think Osweiler has delivered for Houston. The team’s comeback victory in Week 6 now looms large with Houston (7-6) having swept the season series.

5. Indianapolis’ wideout depth has been an issue all season. After Donte Moncrief left with a hamstring injury in the first quarter, Phillip Dorsett dropped 2-3 passes. He wound up with 19 yards on eight targets.

6. Now 6-7 and third place in the AFC South, the Colts head on the road the next two weeks in Minnesota and Oakland. With Tennessee and Houston both at 7-6, Indianapolis may have to win out to get in the tournament. They aren’t complete enough to do that.

Cheap Wholesale Super Bowl Jerseys Authentic From China 2017

The one-win Niners are back on the Kap Train.

Offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins announced Tuesday that Colin Kaepernick will start at quarterback Sunday against the flailing New York Jets, per Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
Kaepernick was historically awful in last Sunday’s loss to the Bears. Hampered by the snowy elements, the former Super Bowl starter was 1-of-5 passing for just four yards before coach Chip Kelly yanked him in favor of low-wattage backup Blaine Gabbert. Sacked five times in defeat, Kaepernick became just the second quarterback since 1970 with more takedowns than passing yards in a single game.

“We had been playing good football on offense and the thing had been trending in the right direction,” Modkins said of Kaepernick’s handiwork prior to the Chicago implosion.

This is the right decision for San Francisco, giving the Niners a better chance for victory against a Jets team that looked utterly lost against the Colts on Monday Night Football.

Cheap Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey From China Online

Andrew Luck is one step closer to returning to action.

The Colts quarterback practiced Monday after missing the team’s Thanksgiving night loss to the Steelers with a concussion.
Donning a red non-contact jersey, Luck was seen throwing the ball during the session. Coach Chuck Pagano later confirmed that Luck remains in the concussion protocol, but said he anticipates the star quarterback suiting up against the New York Jets next Monday night.

The quarterback offered an equally hopeful message after practice, saying: “I feel great; 100 percent and ready to go.”

“There’s a protocol … and I’m in it,” said Luck said, who noted that he “felt good toward the end of (last) week.”

Luck suffered the head injury in a Week 11 win over the Titans. Reporters weren’t told of the concussion until the following day, a setback that came as an unwelcome surprise in the lead-up to the Steelers tilt.

The Colts were a semi-disaster on offense without Luck on the field. Now sitting a game behind the Titans and Texans in the AFC South, Indy (5-6) cannot afford another missed start from their most valuable player.

Green Bay has, as head coach Mike McCarthy said after the Packers’ latest loss, its “ass against the wall.” The sixth defeat on the season was the Packers’ fourth straight, and also the second consecutive dreadful performance in the secondary.

The Packers have allowed 670 yards and seven touchdowns through the air in their last two games, surrendering 89 points to opponents in two road defeats. It’s a far cry from Packers teams of past years that put up plenty of points on offense and relied on veterans such as Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams to lock it down on defense. Instead, they’re too often left watching various defensive backs end up chasing opponents in vain or with their faces full of turf as the other team finishes in the end zone.

So what’s going on in Green Bay’s injury-riddled secondary? We took a closer look at the last two games to see just how other teams are treating the Packers like the Swiss cheese hats their fans wear in the stands.

Against Tennessee, Green Bay relied heavily on Cover 1 schemes that lean on tight man coverage. It exposed what is perhaps Green Bay’s most glaring weakness, as multiple targets found open field and pay dirt against the coverage. The Titans’ Tajae Sharpe, Rishard Matthews, Kendall Wright and Anthony Fasano all scored touchdowns against man coverage, either in Cover 1 or Cover Zero blitz calls.
Too often, Packers defensive backs get caught peeking in the backfield, losing track of their man in the secondary. It happened to Quinten Rollins on Sharpe’s touchdown, and to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix on a play-action fake that resulted in Fasano’s score. In other scenarios, Green Bay decided to pressure quarterback Marcus Mariota with blitzes, leaving defensive backs in one-on-one situations that they ultimately lost. Micah Hyde wasn’t able to keep Matthews from scoring on a route up the seam of the field, and couldn’t stop Wright from scoring on a deep out route, catching the ball and reaching out across the pylon to score for Tennessee.
Green Bay blitzed on 31 percent of pass plays against Tennessee (10th highest in the NFL), allowing Mariota to complete 7 of 8 passes for 109 yards, two touchdowns and a perfect passer rating. The Packers ditched the blitz the following week, sending pressure on just 12.5 percent of pass plays (eighth lowest in the league), and even then, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins still completed all four of his attempts on these downs for 53 yards and a passer rating of 118.8 (tied for 10th highest in the league in Week 11).

It wasn’t until it was too late that Green Bay discovered it struggled mightily in man coverage, switching to a mix of Cover 1 and Cover 2 zone later in the loss to Tennessee. The Packers attempted to cut down on the mistakes in the following week against Washington, all but ditching Cover 1 in favor of Cover 2 and 3 looks. It worked early, limiting Cousins to shorter completions, but a return to Cover 1 man late in the opening drive left Hyde again stunned after DeSean Jackson torched him on a deftly run post route down the middle of the field, 12.91 yards away from any semblance of help from Clinton-Dix, for a score.
The Redskins didn’t take long to notice the switch in coverage, calling a heavier dose of routes down the deep middle of the field in the open area against Cover 2. Jordan Reed caught the first pass late in the second quarter against Cover 2 on a delayed post route for 26 yards, and was open again in the third after Hyde’s momentary peek in the backfield left Reed open over the middle for a gain of 28. Cousins feasted on the middle third of the field, throwing for 291 yards and finishing with a 157.9 passer rating on passes in that area.

Green Bay opted to mix Cover 2 with man coverage underneath, but against the speedy Jamison Crowder, Rollins was no match. Crowder ran a streak down the middle of the field, splitting the safeties each covering half of the field and burning Rollins (Crowder hit a top speed of 19.33 mph to best Rollins, who was running 18.70 mph at the same time), who was playing man coverage, to haul in a 44-yard pass from Cousins for a touchdown.
Even in situations in which Green Bay deployed four defensive backs deep in Cover 4, the Packers couldn’t execute the golden rule of safety play: don’t let anyone get behind you. Pierre Garcon sped past Rollins, who took one instinctive step toward his quarter of the field and spent a half-second too much off Garcon’s pace, which allowed the receiver to sprint ahead of the defender and catch a lob from Cousins that traveled a league-best 49.4 yards in the air on a 70-yard touchdown that again left the Packers flummoxed.
There were also the moments when Green Bay was flat-out caught out of position, or in an mismatch that only spelled doom. There was the switching of man coverage between safety Morgan Burnett and linebacker Joe Thomas on Reed and Crowder, leaving the linebacker to attempt to blanket the speedster — a battle he’d lose 99 times out of 100 when guarding a streak — which resulted in a 53-yard completion from Cousins to Crowder that landed the Redskins at Green Bay’s 1-yard line.

Then, on a play that ended in a sack of Cousins for a 4-yard loss, two Packers defensive backs could be found in the same quadrant of the end zone, leaving three-fourths of the field clear for Jackson, who was wide open but out of sight of Cousins. The nearest defender, cornerback LaDarius Gunter, was 9.7 yards away, covering Reed at the 11. It was harmless miscommunication at best, and a concrete, glaring example of Green Bay’s issues at its worst.

Packers’ defensive problems include leaving wide open spaces in coverage in multiple games. This ended in a sack, but really, what is this?

The resulting conclusion is simple and disheartening for Packers fans. Green Bay doesn’t just struggle in man coverage — it can’t execute. Whether it’s Hyde, Rollins, Gunter, Burnett, Demetri Goodson or even Clinton-Dix, it just isn’t consistent enough to be viewed as a reliable tactic. And even in zone coverages, miscommunication or confusion too often results in blown coverages, leaving wide sections of the field open for opposing receivers to frolic.

Without Damarious Randall, the Packers are down to just three healthy corners and have been forced to use safeties (such as Hyde and Burnett) as Nickel and Dime corners. Players are playing out of their usual position, being forced to pick up different assignments on the fly, and it shows in coverage mistakes, both massive and minor, and these ugly numbers.

Packers’ coverage has been ugly as of late. These numbers (via Next Gen Stats) are, somehow, uglier.

To say the Packers miss Randall would be an understatement. Green Bay needs help all over its secondary, and with six weeks left in the regular season, there isn’t any in sight.

Other notes from Week 11 in Next Gen Stats:

1. Before we move forward, here are a few more nuggets on Cousins, who was near the top of almost every quarterback category this week. Cousins led the league in Week 11 in average air distance per completion (25.4 yards), longest completed pass (49.4 yards in air distance), average air yards to sticks on all downs (+4.1), and average air yards to sticks on third down (+10.4).

2. The Dolphins’ DeVante Parker caught all eight of his receptions when lined up wide for 79 yards, which accounted for 90 percent of Miami’s pass plays in the comeback win. Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans accounted for the most yards when lined up wide with 105 on six catches (84 percent of pass plays). Cincinnati’s Tyler Boyd led all receivers lined up in the slot with six catches for 54 yards (88 percent of pass plays).

3. Xavier Rhodes flipped the Vikings’ game against the Cardinals on its side when he intercepted Carson Palmer and took it 100 yards for a touchdown. On the return, Rhodes traveled a true distance of 121 yards and reached a max speed of 22.4 mph, besting any other top speed on a scoring play and ranking as the second-fastest ballcarrier of the year. It was also the longest distance traveled on a scoring play, until teammate Cordarrelle Patterson broke that record later in the game with his kickoff return for a touchdown that covered a total distance of 135 yards.

Next Gen Stats: Week 11 QB and receiver charts
Russell Wilson threw for one touchdown and caught another in his win over the Eagles. Take a look at the pass and route charts from key players in Week 11.
Oh, and the Vikings are pretty fast. Rhodes (22.4 mph) and Patterson (21.48 mph) join Stefon Diggs (22.5 mph) among the fastest ball carriers in the league this season.

4. The Rams handcuffed Jared Goff in his pro debut, as the rookie’s average air yards per completion was fourth-lowest in the league in Week 11 at 4.1 yards. Goff also only had five attempts of 10-plus air yards.

5. The Titans led the league in blitzing percentage, sending five or more rushers on 43.3 percent of defensive downs, resulting in just one sack. New Orleans ranked second at 40 percent, but managed to take down Cam Newton twice.

6. New week, new fancy route and passing charts. My personal favorite is Russell Wilson’s route chart, but I like oddities. Take a look.

7. Ezekiel Elliott entered the Cowboys’ record books Sunday, but what might be even more impressive is how he did it. Close to half (40) of Elliott’s 97 rushing yards came against eight-plus defenders in the box. Elliott had the most non-red-zone carries (nine) against a stacked box in Week 11. Throw everything at him — it’s still difficult to stop Zeke.

DeMar DeRozan Jersey – Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic From China

DeMar DeRozan is quick to point out that his stunning scoring spree to start the season is no one-man show.
DeRozan had 30 points, including four in overtime, and the Toronto Raptors held off the Denver Nuggets for a 113-111 victory Friday night.
It was the 10th time in 12 games this season that DeRozan, the NBA’s leading scorer, has reached 30 points — most of any player in the league.
“I’ve had a lot of help,” DeRozan said. “People have looked for me within the offence. Tonight it was JV (centre Jonas Valanciunas) setting screens for me. When the defence packed it in on him, he got me the ball for shots.”

DeRozan, Lowry and Ross come up big in Denver
Sam Mitchell and Leo Rautins credit DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry for stepping up when the Raptors needed them the most in their overtime win over the Nuggets, and praise Terrence Ross for knocking down some clutch shots down the stretch.

DeRozan also gave credit to Terrence Ross, who hit a 3-pointer with 37.6 seconds left in the extra period to put Toronto up by two.
“Terrence has heart and he is more than capable of making a big shot,” DeRozan said. “You know when you have another threat like that out there who is going to play extremely hard on both ends, it’s great.”
Denver’s Emmanuel Mudiay was short with a desperation heave from halfcourt at the final buzzer.
Kyle Lowry added 18 points and 13 assists for the Raptors, who swept the two-game season series.
Mudiay and Wilson Chandler each scored 25 points to lead the Nuggets, who have lost five of six. Denver also was plagued by turnovers, including two in overtime.

Ross on his big three in OT to help Raptors seal the deal
After finishing with 16 points off the bench, including a big three-pointer in overtime, Terrence Ross discusses his performance and the team’s hard fought win over the Nuggets.

“It’s the story of the game and the story of our short season,” coach Michael Malone said. “Emmanuel throws it out of bounds and Jameer (Nelson) steps out of bounds. Unfortunate timing for those turnovers.”
After trailing by five going into the fourth quarter, Toronto took an 87-86 lead on a 3-pointer by Ross with 7:57 left.
No more than three points separated the teams during the remainder of regulation.
DeRozan hit a jumper to put Toronto up 99-98, and Valanciunas added one of two free throws moments later. Nelson answered with a 3 to put Denver back up by a point, but DeRozan hit a jumper with 15 seconds left as the Raptors regained the lead.
Chandler was fouled on a drive to the basket and made one of two free throws to tie it. DeRozan’s baseline jumper at the end of regulation went in and out, sending the game to overtime tied at 102.
Behind a 38-point second quarter, their second-highest output in any period this season, the Nuggets took a 57-52 lead at halftime after trailing by as many as 12.
Chandler fueled the outburst, scoring 12 points in the quarter.
