Cowboys vs. Giants: Score, results, highlights from Sunday night game in Dallas

In the weeks leading up to Sunday night’s Cowboys-Giants game in Dallas, both teams at different points wondered whether they would have their respective star offensive players available. As it turns out, Dallas had Ezekiel Elliott, but New York did not have Odell Beckham Jr.

That had at least a little to do with why the Giants’ offense looked so bad during Sunday night’s 19-3 loss to the Cowboys.

Authentic Womens Jurrell Casey Jersey The cornerback is an astute student of the game as well. Cowboys safety Byron Jones, who also spent his rookie season learning and playing various positions in the secondary, told ESPN about Awuzie’s development from training camp to week one: One thing that’s unique about him is he’s incredibly intelligent. He understands the playbook.

He’s playing a lot of positions. He’s very similar to me, as a guy we’re asking to play a lot of positions. The future’s bright for him. He’s far ahead of where I was my rookie year. He just understands a lot more He just understands football. He’ll be a good player. I see him being better [than I was my rookie year]. He’s going to do well. He’s going to be a very good player.

They’ve done it by asserting their individuality into existence. And if you’re of the opinion that the NFL would be a better product if players were more than superhumans who have been forced into the same uniforms like sleeves of Kraft Singles, then this is really encouraging. If the NBA is a life preserver for the sinking American sports landscape, NFL players are flailing to latch on.

Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension upheld, still expected to play Week 1

Game Mens Shamar Stephen Jersey
Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension was upheld Tuesday.

Arbitrator Harold Henderson announced his decision Tuesday, but the Cowboys running back could see the field beyond Week 1 against the Giants pending additional legal action.

Trubisky eventually threw a handful of passes (he finished 2 of 5 for 10 yards), before giving way to Connor Shaw. That should have been the end of the discussion, except Shaw got banged up and Trubisky had to return to finish the game. On the next-to-last play he got knocked down on a screen pass. After Fox called a timeout with 11 seconds to play, Trubisky dropped back to pass on the next play and took a sack.

Trubisky sacked on the final play of a 25-0 preseason loss because of course he was. This is the worst sporting event I’ve ever attended.

Anytime you go out there it’s a risk, truth be told,” Fox told reporters. Football is a rough game, no doubt. You never want to see people get hurt, but it is part of the game. And so, I don’t know that we exposed Mitch a whole lot, but I can also say anytime you drop between those lines you’re exposed.

On his initial reaction to becoming a free agent and the process with the Steelers: Once I got released and I was a free agent, it was cool because I got to pick my own destiny. I got to figure out where I wanted to go. They definitely had to have the same amount of interest in me, but when my agent was talking to them about how they were super excited, super pumped, couldn’t believe I was available and wanted to get me in here, it was cool.

Game Mens Wesley Walker Jersey I felt like it would be a great fit. When I first came when I met them at the hotel, the relationships — the owner, GM, the players, everybody — they just welcomed me and were super excited. It’s an exciting time.

Cowboys likely to start Jaylon Smith at middle linebacker vs. Giants, report says

When the Cowboys’ projected starting middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens went down in the preseason with a right knee injury, all eyes turned to Jaylon Smith, a Authentic Lance McCullers Jersey second-year pro out of Notre Dame.

Smith, a second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, missed all of last season due to nerve damage suffered in his knee during his final season with the Fighting Irish. But, according to ESPN.com, Smith will get an opportunity to start Sunday night against the Giants.

Once considered a top-5 pick, Smith slid down the draft because some feared he might never play again. However, his nerve reactivated and he has impressed during training camp and the preseason.

Janikowski would be eligible to return to action no earlier than Week 8, if he is healthy. The 39-year-old kicker missed the team’s last two preseason games with a disc problem in his back.

The move to IR comes just days after Janikowski Authentic Robert Golden Jersey and the Raiders ended a contract stalemate and agreed to a new deal, according to multiple reports.

To take Janikowski’s place, the Raiders promoted kicker Giorgio Tavecchio to the active roster, after working out several kickers earlier in the week. He is expected to start the season opener Sunday. Although the former Cal player has never played in a regular-season game, he has spent time in the Raiders’ camp the past four preseasons.

Janikowski, who has played his entire 17-season career in Oakland, is 10th on the NFL’s all-time scoring list with 1,799 points.

Arizona allowed the second-fewest yards and topped the league with 48 sacks last season.

(Texans President) Jamey Rootes spoke with (Houston) Mayor (Sylvester) Turner and (Harris County) Judge (Ed) Emmett — obviously, Bob McNair involved with that — and everyone agrees that our game will not take resources away from other parts of the city and that this game will be an opportunity to continue to bring us all together as Houstonians and as Texans, Texans coach Bill O’Brien said.

Winning their opener would help advance the Texans’ goal of mending their community, but like the Jaguars, Houston opens the season with a curious situation at its most crucial position.

Stafford was benched after throwing three interceptions in a 42-17 home loss to the Cardinals two seasons ago, the last time the teams met.

Arizona allowed the second-fewest yards and topped the league with 48 sacks last season.

They’re unique in their scheme, Stafford said. The guys in the secondary, they’re ballhawks out there. No. 21 (cornerback Patrick Peterson) and 32 (free safety Tyrann Mathieu) have done it for years and some of the other guys that are new to the team or their role are playing really well, too.

And then they have guys who can really rush the passer up front. So they do a really nice job. Traditionally, they’ve been a very good defense and I don’t expect to see anything different.

The NFL has discussed the possibility of full-time officiating for years

That type of information was very useful during the draft, but how can fantasy owners use it to help determine which players they should start or sit on a weekly basis?

To assist in this effort, I applied a similar methodology to measure the strength of the defensive front sevens of every team and gave each defense an A to F grade in pass rushing, rush defense and consistency/stability, all of which resulted in an overall front seven grade.

Riley Dixon Jersey I then took those grades and compared them to the offensive line grades to find out the relative blocking strength of every matchup of Week 1.

Anthony Castonzo Game Jersey The NFL has discussed the possibility of full-time officiating for years, but this spring its competition committee urged league officials to push forward and negotiate a structure with the NFLRA. The sides agreed to a voluntary process in August, one that was open to anyone on the already-hired 124-person officiating roster. The NFL agreed not to make it compulsory or a factor in future employment.

The 21 full-time officials are allowed to retain outside jobs but must commit to making the NFL their top professional priority. They also must agree to report to the league’s New York office within 48 hours of a request if necessary.

NFLRA executive director Scott Green said this summer that he did not expect much to change in the day-to-day schedules of full-time officials during the season. The projected benefit would come in the offseason, through extended training and other working groups designed to improve and enhance the officiating process.

The sides agreed to circle back prior to the 2018 season. At that point, they will determine if the program was effective, whether it should be changed or if all officials should return to independent contractor status.

this was the first work stoppage under then-new NHL commissioner Gary Bettman

The first of multiple lockouts over the course of the next two decades, this was the first work stoppage under then-new NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

Shortening the 1994-95 season to 48 games, the lockout centred around salary cap issues that ultimately never got resolved. It would be the first of three work stoppages under Bettman, including the 2004-05 lockout that caused the cancellation of the entire season.

Coach Martz is a guy that I have always had a huge amount of respect for with what he’s accomplished, especially with just being an offensive coach, McVay said Tuesday. You look at the production of offenses that he’s been a part of, so as a fan of coaching 鈥?I don’t know Coach Martz, I met him real quick at the Combine a handful of years ago. Like I said, I have a lot of respect for what he’s accomplished and I can’t say anything but good things about what he’s done and what kind of coach he is.

Game Mens Landry Jones Jersey Martz, who was fired five games into the 2005 season, is quoted in Thomas George’s upcoming book, Blitzed: Why NFL Teams Gamble on Starting Rookie Quarterbacks. In the book, Martz is asked about McVay, who spent three seasons as the Redskins offensive coordinator and is given credit for helping Kirk Cousins throw for more than 4,000 yards each of the last two seasons.

You know, in 1960 when they met in Harlem, that was a historic moment and that was something that I will always be true to what Malcolm was, what he represented.

Patriots WR Julian Edelman has torn ACL

Julian Edelman reportedly suffered a torn ACL when he went down after a pass reception in the Patriots’ game against the Lions Friday night.

The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported after the game that sources indicate they believe it is a torn ACL, but Edelman will undergo an MRI Saturday to confirm.

Dr. Mark Adickes, an orthopedic surgeon and analyst for ESPN, tweeted after looking at Edelman’s injury that, “I would be shocked if he does not have an ACL tear. That would be a season ending injury.”

Edelman led the Patriots in receptions (98) and yards (1,161) in 2017 and has led the Patriots in receptions two of the last three years. Edelman had three catches for 52 yards in Friday’s game before leaving with the injury.

Supporters of quarterback Colin Kaepernick came out to picket in front of NFL headquarters Wednesday afternoon to show they stood behind him.

Hundreds of people wearing 49ers jerseys with Kaepernick’s name on the back stood by the NFL headquarters in New York City. Many of the protesters called for a boycott of the league.

“I don’t care how long you’ve been watching football, if they don’t stand up for your children, turn the damn TV off,” Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory said to the crowd of supporters.

Kaepernick remains a free agent since opting out of his 49ers contract in March. Many believe, because he kneeled for the national anthem last season to protest racial injustices and police brutality, NFL owners are blackballing him from joining their teams.seahawks_010

Aaron Rodgers threw a pass to a sliding Steph Curry at the American Century Championship

The American Century Championship is a perfect summer sports weekend, bringing a handful of athletes, celebrities, and fans to Lake Tahoe for golf and a bunch of shenanigans. You may recall a highlight from last year when Alfonso Ribeiro, Justin Timberlake, and Stephen Curry got together to do the Carlton Dance from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

This year, Curry and Aaron Rodgers treated fans to a fantasy scenario where Curry leaves basketball to be a wideout with the Packers. Here’s how Curry fared in catching a pass from Rodgers — he slipped, but he caught it!

Irving has reportedly given the Cavs a list of four preferred destinations: San Antonio, Miami, New York and Minnesota. Apparently, there was another team Irving wanted to go to before the NBA draft. That’s the Chicago Bulls.

Phil McConkey Limited Jersey Irving was hoping to be traded to Chicago to play alongside Jimmy Butler before the All-NBA wing was traded to Minnesota, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

Another league source said that Irving made his initial trade request before last month’s Draft, in hopes of being traded to Chicago and playing with All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler. Just before Griffin and the team decided to part ways, Griffin had been working on a three-team deal that would have brought Butler to the Cavs.
Butler was traded to the Timberwolves on draft day for Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine and the No. 7 pick. The Bulls used that selection on Arizona big man Lauri Markkanen.

the outcome of that West series may have been different.

She averaged 14 points, 5.6 assists, and connected on 53 percent of her three-point shots over the course of those five games. The Stars are currently on a three-game winning streak, and while they won’t make the postseason this year, this is evidence that letting Plum develop could have a great payoff for San Antonio in the future.

Plum did sprain her ankle in the preseason but has since recovered, so the Stars cannot use that injury to explain her lack of minutes this season. She’s also a rookie who will have the same growing pains of any other rookie. But young players need time to develop, and she can only do that by being on the court.

But the Spurs were a shell of themselves in high-leverage situations with their all-world forward off the floor.

After Leonard left Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals with an ankle injury, San Antonio blew a 23-point lead and ceded defeat to Golden State. The Warriors eventually swept the Spurs and won a championship in the most dominant postseason display in NBA history.

If Kawhi had some help at the point guard position, however, the outcome of that West series may have been different. Tony Parker ruptured his quad in San Antonio’s second-round series against the Rockets. The Spurs played point guard by committee, with Leonard serving as the primary ball handler and Jonathon Simmons, Patty Mills, and Dejounte Murray filling in.

Gerald McCoy teaching us the NFL’s new celebration rules is the best thing about ‘Hard Knocks’

Gerald McCoy has already emerged as a star of this season of Hard Knocks featuring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His best moment so far came at the end of the second episode, as McCoy demonstrated dance moves to get clarity from Ed Hochuli on the NFL’s new celebration rules.

The league did relax the rules on celebrations, but certain things are still going to be flagged. Any kind of pelvic thrusting or twerking or sexually suggestive dance still isn’t going to fly. But in this case, McCoy seems to be right. That wasn’t sexual. Those are just McCoy’s knees.

After a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend descended into chaos, citizens in Tampa asked Hillsborough County on Wednesday to relocate a monument from their city. The citizens were tasked with raising the money themselves for the statue to come down and just one day later, a $140,000 goal was reached.

Among the donations was $5,000 from former Buccaneers head coach Tony Dungy, who challenged the Buccaneers, Rays, and Lightning to help the cause.

On Thursday, the three teams answered Dungy’s call and released a joint statement on pitching in to remove the Confederate monument from downtown Tampa.

“Recognizing that this monument does not reflect the values of our community, in collaboration with the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, our organizations have dedicated funds to assist in moving the statue from the public space in front of the courthouse,” the statement reads. “Now more than ever before, we must stand united and committed to diversity and inclusion as we all attempt to heal from the tragedy in Charlottesville.”redskins_098_f38f2859ef1b6b45-180x180
