Washington-Saints closes out the week with Monday Night Football The NFL closes out Week 5 with a battle of first place NFC teams. The New Orleans Saints host Washington San Francisco 49ers Hoodie ," although he did not give specifics.He said Nike marketing is always about addressing "how do we connect and engage in a way that is relevant and inspiring to the consumers we're here to serve."Taking a political or social stand is anathema to most brands, who aim to appeal to the broadest amount of people possible in order to get them to part with their dollars. They don't always work out. For example, Etsy, the craft-centric e-commerce company, rose to prominence as a B Corp., a type of for-profit company that has been certified to meet social sustainability and environmental performance standards. But once Etsy went public, its board voted to give up its B Corp. status to maintain its corporate structure.In another case, an 84 Lumber Super Bowl ad in 2017 that tried to tackle immigration came across as overly complicated and tone deaf. Similarly, a 2017 Airbnb Super Bowl ad that aimed to celebrate diversity ended up inadvertently echoing Airbnb's own problem with combating discrimination by some hosts.But if it fits with the brand, a social stance can work. Outdoor clothing company Patagonia has had success taking a stand on environmental issues because that resonates with its main customers: buyers of high end outdoor clothing gear. And as opposition swelled against the Trump administration policy to separate migrant families, American Airlines and United Airlines, as well as other carriers, issued statements that said they did not want to use their flights to carry migrant children to temporary shelters.As for Nike, "they hit it out of the park with the Kaepernick ad," said Bob Phibbs, CEO of New York-based consultancy the Retail Doctor. "This ad is completely in line with who Nike is and what they stand for. That authenticity resonated and will continue to resonate with their customers."

Everything you need to know about Jimmy Garoppolo’s injury and return timetable San Francisco 49ers fans and players alike are not going to be laying off on discussions about Jimmy Garoppolo’s knee injury. An ill-advised cut in the final moments of Week 3’s contest against the Kansas City Chiefs is all that was needed to put the quarterback and the optimism out of commission San Francisco 49ers Hats , feel rotations, feel pressures a lot easier. It’s just slowed down and you know where to get the ball and get it out of your hands.” A lot of quarterbacks say the difference from college to the NFL is that the windows are so much tighter. Is that the biggest thing to you or is there something else about transitioning in the quarterback role?“I think that’s a huge thing. The windows are a lot tighter. You’re playing a lot better players, but you’ve also got a lot better players on your team. So, that helps. But, I think more than anything it’s just learning a new offense as a new quarterback. That’s the toughest thing that any new quarterback is trying to deal with, learning a new offense and going out there and executing it and knowing where guys are going to be and what they’re going to be doing. I think that’s the biggest thing.” How challenging is it going out to practice today and you guys are going to be missing probably about seven, eight more would-be starters? What’s the harm in that in terms of setting up continuity?“Obviously it’s tough not having the guys that are going to be out there, out there with you practicing. But, it’s a great opportunity for the other guys to get in and get reps, like [WR] Richie James [Jr.] and guys like [WR Victor Bolden Jr.] Vic who haven’t been getting those reps, to get those reps and really get better chemistry with me and the team. So, it stinks, but at the same time, you take it as a positive and the guys that are getting the reps today will definitely get better from it.” How much does an X receiver benefit from having great speed and how much different is it when you have an X who isn’t WR Marquise Goodwin?“It’s different, for sure. Defenses definitely have to game plan for having a guy like Marquise in there. It changes your offense a little bit and what you want to do as a scheme, for sure. So, it’ll be nice to have him back this week.”

No last-second meltdown. No double-lateral magic by the opponents. No Womens Trey Flowers Jersey , the Patriots struggled mightily to contain the dangerous trio in their one-on-one matchups. Brady was sacked five times, including a fumble-six forced by Mercilus on a clean win against Solder:Even when the Patriots completed some nice plays, Brady was getting hit, and hit hard – nine times to be exact. Here are the four non-sack hits on Brady from that game:On each of those four plays, the Texans run some sort of stunt and get a hit in on Brady. It’s on the left tackle and guard in the first three clips and over the center on the fourth clip. This kind of quick pressure generated by four players against a 6-man protection is just unreal and speaks to the talent of the Texans’ defensive linemen. On four of the biggest plays of the game, the Patriots felt compelled to have their most talented skill player chip in protection, and despite that, pressure made it through.The Texans have made a change at defensive coordinator with Vrabel off coaching the Titans, but the scheme should remain the same. Romeo Crennel (who was also the defensive coordinator in Texas from 2014-16) runs the same kind of schemes and Belichick is obviously well acquainted with his strategy as well. I expect the Patriots to be much better prepared for the Texans’ pass rush. PersonnelThe Patriots’ top three wide receivers in that game were Chris Hogan, Brandin Cooks, and Danny Amendola, with Phillip Dorsett only chipping in with seven snaps as the fourth wideout. Hogan, Dorsett, and Cordarrelle Patterson is obviously a step back from that trio and I suspect that the Patriots will adjust accordingly. In last year’s game, James Develin and Dwayne Allen played a combined 50% of defensive snaps. This Sunday that number should be closer to 100%. The Patriots need to take advantage of Mercilus and Clowney covering and playing the run in their base defense.The Patriots are still going to have to chip Watt and Clowney on the edges and ideally, they would prefer that guy to be Allen. I would also bet on the Patriots inserting some tight end screens or phantom blocks into the game plan to take advantage if the Texans get too aggressive.For the rest of the Texans’ defense, the Patriots should have an advantage against the secondary, but it has improved over recent years. One common theme from the Texans over the last decade or so has been that they could never have quality safety play. From Danieal Manning to D.J. Swearinger to Andre Hal to Quintin Demps to Eddie Pleasant to Corey Moore... you get the picture, they have all been mediocre fill-ins at best. This offseason, they finally realized the position to be a glaring weakness and signed Tyrann Mathieu, while moving back long time cornerback Kareem Jackson to safety to shore up the position. It will be very interesting to see how those two match up against Gronkowski and James White/Rex Burkhead because both of their starting linebackers (McKinney and Zach Cunningham) can’t cover for shit. Johnathan Joseph is somehow still starting for them at CB along with Kevin Johnson and ex-Jag slot guy Aaron Colvin. Not a group that is going to shut you down, but a group that has seen Brady many times and could pose a problem to one of the weakest and shallowest wide receiver positional groups that Brady has ever had. My two cents on the Patriots offense: heavy on the ground game and bigger personnel to set up play-action passing. While the Texans mostly relied on a four-man rush in obvious passing situations, according to PFF they were the tied for the most aggressive team in the NFL when it came to blitzing on 1st down, making them even more susceptible to this strategy. Final ThoughtsIt seems criminal to type out 1,500 words and not mention the special teams battle so I guess I’ll put a little blurb in here. The Texans have consistently been a bottom-ten special teams positional group and they fired Patriots special teams legend Larry Izzo as their coach in the offseason. It’s too early to tell if there will be improvements, but the Patriots should be able to comfortably outplay them in that aspect of the game. I’m excited to see Cordarrelle Patterson in the return game.All in all, the Texans are no pushover, and represent a real threat to the Patriots in their home opener. That being said, I think that the Patriots learn from their first meeting with Watson and win and cover on Sunday. I think that there will be plenty of scoring drives for both sides but I don’t see how they have the second highest over/under of the week. For all of the betting men out there, I’ll take Patriots (-6.5) and the under (51).Week 1 prediction: Patriots 27 Texans 20

The Philadelphia Eagles lost another key player for the season.Cornerback Ronald Darby tore his ACL in the second half of Philadelphia's 27-20 loss to Dallas on Sunday night http://www.newenglandpatriotsteamonline.com/phillip-dorsett-jersey , Tennessee and Denver based on AFC record.9. Cincinnati (5-6): With Andy Dalton out for the season, their playoff hopes have likely gone from slim to none.10. Denver (5-6): They’ll probably have to win out to make the playoffs, but the way they’ve been playing lately, that’s entirely possible.11. Tennessee (5-6): The tiebreaker scenarios aren’t kind to the Titans.12. Cleveland (4-6-1): They’re making progress, but not playoff contenders yet.13. Buffalo (4-7): Certainly not a playoff team, but the Bills are playing better than most expected.14. Jacksonville (3-: Owns the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Jets.15. N.Y.

With one coach out and another coach eventually in White Danny Shelton Jersey , moving him outside," Pederson said. "There's going to be a progression with him, and I don't think it will be instantaneous, but at the same time the more comfortable he gets, the better he becomes. He becomes a target defensively as you saw in some of the games last year where he was doubled a lot, especially in the red zone, and we know that is going to happen. He makes a huge difference for us."Carson Wentz just returned after tearing two knee ligaments in Week 14. His final pass last season was a TD to Jeffery, who doesn't put himself in the quarterback's category."Carson is the captain of the ship. I don't see similarities because I play receiver," he said.Wentz only had six of his 25 completions to wide receivers last week in a 20-16 win over Indianapolis. He's excited to get Jeffery back."Anytime Alshon is out there, he brings a spark to the offense," Wentz said. "He brings somebody that has the ability to make a play down the field and underneath and do some things really well."NOTES: RBs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring), DE Michael Bennett (illness) and S Rodney McLeod (knee) didn't practice. Ajayi missed one game, Sproles sat out the last two.

The Firemen of the Baltimore Ravens The year was 1992. The NFL had announced that two new franchises would be added to the league as expansion clubs. Numerous cities put their name in the hat Cleveland Browns T-Shirt , "Look, all players in this league are talented players or they wouldn't be in this league. We'll see."Limited in practice, Gordon, who missed 43 of his last 48 games, could make his debut with his new team Sunday night in Detroit when the Patriots (1-1) face former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and his Lions (0-2)."(He's) been eager to get in there and learn everything we're doing and, you know, just trying to acclimate himself to what the program is," Tom Brady said Friday.As far as Gordon playing Sunday after limited exposure to the Patriots' complicated playbook, Brady said, "It's just up to the coaches. I think if they're in there it's up to the coaches to decide those things. I don't think anyone is going to put anyone out there if they don't know what they're doing. Now you can limit the number of plays and try and do that, I think we've done that plenty of times; anytime you get new players that's what you try to do."Asked Thursday about Gordon, who had a big game against New England in 2013, Devin McCourty, stumbled a bit and said, "That's a lot of, 'I don't knows.' I don't . he's only been here for I think two days now so I wouldn't say I can formulate an opinion on him. But, we all know he's a good player."Excited to have him here and he seems excited to get to work. We'll see how it all shakes out."NOTES: TE Rob Gronkowski, "limited" in practice Wednesday (ankle) was back at "full participation" Friday. ... Brady completed his first NFL pass against the Lions on Nov. 23, 2000, but that was at the Pontiac Silverdome. He was 1 for 3 for 6 yards, the completion to Rod Rutledge in a 34-9 Thanksgiving Day loss. That was the only game Brady saw any action in his rookie season. . The Patriots lead the series with the Lions 7-4 and come into this game 16-9 on "Sunday Night Football," 10-2 in their last 12. . New England hasn't lost two games in a row since 2015 and is 12-1 since 2002 (the loss in 2012) after a September loss. . Jones, the Patriots' second draft choice in 2016 and injured all last year, was cut by the club at the end of camp and was on the Baltimore Ravens' practice squad when New England decided to bring him back.

Haslams continue unwavering support for Hue Jackson There have been two constants for the Cleveland Browns since Jimmy and Dee Haslam purchased the team in the fall of 2012.One is the constant losing that bottomed out with the Browns going 1-31 the past two seasons. (At least Browns fans hope that was the bottom.)The other is the Haslams’ annual insistence that they have learned from their past mistakes and that the times are finally changing for the better.That was on full display on Saturday Youth Nick Chubb Jersey , touchdowns, preferably. Now everyone goes to shuffling, running around with their heads cut off and panicking at the end of the game."We should've done the hard work when we had opportunities. It's just a detriment to everyone. I'm going to do my part. I'm starting with myself. We all put ourselves in this situation. There's no one person to blame. We just have to keep moving forward."Newton quickly dismissed a question about whether he would rest his sore shoulder.Times are tough, but he's not quitting."We're in a position where we're done with the clich茅 sayings," he said. "It just comes down to us doing our job. That's pretty much what it is, in all three phases of football. Even though coach can get up and motivate us, we can get up, scream and holler, it just comes down to us doing our job."

The lowly Arizona Cardinals pulled off an upset at Lambeau Field that was so much a stunner that the Green Bay Packers fired coach Mike McCarthy after the game.Zane Gonzalez kicked a 44-yard field goal with 1:41 left Authentic Christian Kirksey Jersey , Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald became the highest paid defender in the league when he signed a six-year, $135 million extension, $87 million of which is guaranteed.While the Browns currently have roughly $58 million in cap space, it’s hard to see them giving up so much cap space along with the requisite draft capital it will take to get a deal done. But don’t count the Browns out by any means. Dorsey could get creative by including players in the deal to sweeten the pot. Plus, the prospect of having Myles Garrett and Mack playing opposite one another might be too enticing for him to pass up. The Browns have been so bad for so long, and the desire to win and win now is so great in Berea, that there may be a real possibility of something materializing quickly in the coming days. Although the price is steep, the Mack and Garret combo would provide the Browns with the best pass rush, at least on paper, that the NFL has seen in quite some time.Remember, as Cabot pointed out, Dorsey worked with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie in Green Bay, so they may very well have a good enough working relationship to make progress on a solution that would satisfy both sides.

I think we've done that plenty of times; anytime you get new players that's what.
