How to watch Washington vs. Eagles 2015 online Saturday night


The division that nobody seemed to want to win this season could have an unlikely champion before the end of Saturday night. The NFC East title is hanging in the balance this weekend when the Philadelphia Eagles host Washington in a game that will go a long ways toward deciding the postseason fate of both teams.

Thanks to the Eagles and New York Giants both losing in Week 15, combined with Washington’s win over the Buffalo Bills, Jay Gruden’s club can clinch its first division title since 2012 with a win in Philly.

At 7-7, the team has a one-game lead in the standings with two games to go. A win by Washington would give the Eagles their ninth loss, eliminating them from the race. It would also wrap up the tiebreaker advantage over New York, regardless of what the Giants do in their final two games.

Limited Mens Shaun Hill Jersey The Giants saw their faint postseason hopes extinguished Saturday night when Washington beat the Philadelphia Eagles to win the NFC East title. This will be their fourth straight playoff-less campaign, their longest drought since the current playoff format was established in 1990. They are also the only NFL team in that span to win a Super Bowl and then miss in the postseason in the next four years.

The Giants certainly had their chances to avoid this disappointing outcome. They’re masters of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, thanks to some questionable late game play-calling and a dreadful defense that’s been unable to get stops in the two-minute drill. They’ve been this close to owning the two biggest wins of any team this season: they lost on walk-off field goals to the two best teams in the NFL — the Patriots and Panthers.

Ezekiel Elliott executed a Barry Sanders-esque peekaboo cut that sucked a safety inside


On the key play against Minnesota, Ezekiel Elliott executed a Barry Sanders-esque peekaboo cut that sucked a safety inside and allowed him to burst right into the open field.

All that coordination by the Dallas line is impressive, but it’s Elliott who takes the play to another level by doing something that makes you forget he’s a rookie. The epic battle between Frederick and Greenway has leaked several yards to the right, directly into Elliott’s path.

Rather than panic or cut inside for a respectable 7-yard gain, though, he executes a Barry Sanders-esque peekaboo cut that sucks Sendejo inside and allows Elliott to burst to his right into the open field. “Zeke does a lot of things that make us look better as blockers,” Frederick says.

Browns OL Joe Thomas, a veteran of 10 Pro Bowls, has taken credit for the NFL trying to “spice up” the game after his suggestions.
“But for Terrelle, they’re like, ‘Oh no, he had a down game.’ So I’m very apprehensive as a Cleveland Browns guy to give out a contract.”

Hartline didn’t stop there, saying Pryor had one year as a receiver and is “a flash in the pan.”

“You’re trying to tell me with a guy that had suspect personality characteristics, I’m going to go ahead and hand you a bunch of money, then you’re going to work harder?” Hartline said. “Uhhh, I think I’m going to bet against that if I’m a betting man.

Limited Mens Quincy Enunwa Jersey “So, I hope he does well. I’ve been rooting. And let me be very clear: When he was here, when he came in last year, he in no way, shape or form had the right mentality or the right ability to … well he had the ability … the right mindset to be an NFL wide receiver.

Ravens stay in playoff hunt with last-second stand against Eagles


In a season when nothing has come easy, the Baltimore Ravens remained in the playoff hunt with a last-second stand on a two-point conversion attempt.

After quarterback Carson Wentz got the Philadelphia Eagles to within one point on a 4-yard touchdown run, the Ravens held strong with four seconds remaining, thwarting the Eagles’ gamble to try to win the game with a two-point conversion and persevering for a 27-26 win.

The Ravens have been aggressive when it comes to critical decisions all season, and they stuck with that mentality with their season on the line. On that two-point conversion, Baltimore called for an all-out blitz.

Jim Dray Youth Jersey Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley rushed the middle, got his hands up knowing the ball was coming out quickly and tipped Wentz’s two-point pass attempt. Nickelback Jerraud Powers then knocked away the fluttering ball from Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews. There was more of a sigh of relief than an exuberant celebration after Baltimore’s third win in four games.

George Wilson Youth Jersey “Shoot, we got the last laugh,” safety Eric Weddle said. “It’s going to come down to those one or two plays a game. If you’re on the right side of those plays, you usually win.”

Most of the Ravens knew the Pittsburgh Steelers staged a comeback victory at Cincinnati, and the pressure was on them to keep pace with their division rival. Everyone, even those on the sidelines, were on the edge of their seats.

Tucker is the NFL’s most accurate kicker this season, hitting 33 of 34 field goals (.969), including a 47-yard field goal in the Ravens’ 27-26 victory over the Eagles on Sunday.

His 33 field goals lead the NFL in 2016.

He opened training camp as the third quarterback behind Tony Romo and Kellen Moore


Unlike Winston, Prescott, as a fourth-round pick out of Mississippi State, did not enter the NFL with high expectations. He opened training camp as the third quarterback behind Tony Romo and Kellen Moore. But with his fast start — he has thrown for 3,139 yards and 20 touchdowns against only four interceptions — Prescott put himself in the MVP and Rookie of the Year discussions.

Over the past two games, Prescott has experienced some of the same bumps Winston experienced as a rookie. Prescott had his first multiple-interception game of his career last week in a loss to the New York Giants. The Cowboys have scored just 24 points in the past two games combined after scoring at least 24 in 10 straight.

The 22-year-old had five tackles in the game’s first 58 minutes, but his attempts to get to Blake Bortles had been thwarted by some of the tendencies that led him to fall to the third round of the 2015 draft. Hunter had spun his wheels trying to make too many moves on Jacksonville Jaguars right tackle Jeremy Parnell, so before the Vikings took the field for their final defensive series, defensive line coach Andre Patterson had a quick talk with Hunter.

“I told him, ‘Hey — stop messing around. Come off the ball, use your speed, put your long arm on him and go. It’s over,'” Patterson said. “He goes, ‘Yes sir.’ And he went out there and did it and he got a sack.”
Don Mattingly Womens Jersey
The 56-year-old Patterson first worked for Zimmer in 1988 at Weber State, where the coach was in his final year there before becoming Washington State’s defensive coordinator. Zimmer was a firebrand even back then, Patterson said, and the two found a common approach in their voracious appetite for knowledge. Patterson would join Zimmer at Washington State in 1992, and then again with the Cowboys in 2000 (after two years working for the Vikings).

When the two weren’t working together, Zimmer would call Patterson for insight on his defensive line drills and teaching techniques. And when Zimmer became the Vikings’ head coach in 2014, he hired Patterson to change the philosophy of a defensive line that had long been taught to rush past blockers, often creating quick pressure on the quarterback but leaving escape hatches open while occasionally shirking responsibilities against the run.

NFL picks and predictions, Chargers vs. Broncos 2016: Experts expect Denver to get 1st-round bye


he Denver Broncos will finally have quarterback Peyton Manning back in uniform heading into Sunday’s game against the AFC West rival San Diego Chargers, but he won’t be under center unless his team is up big or somebody gets injured. That’s because the Broncos are sticking with Brock Osweiler at the quarterback position.

Denver believes that Osweiler is the future at the Limited Chicago Cubs Jersey position, or at least they have seen enough to know that he is better than Manning was at the start of the season.

Manning sustained a foot injury that led to Osweiler starting, but the veteran was playing poorly before going down with the injury. Manning completed just 59.9 percent of his passes for 2,180 yards with nine touchdowns and 17 interceptions before he went to the bench. Osweiler, with 70 fewer attempts, has completed 61.7 percent of his passes Elite Youth Martin Hanzal Jersey for 1,735 yards with nine touchdowns and just four interceptions.

The Raiders aren’t headed to the postseason, but still have reason to celebrate as they wrap up the 2015 season. They’ve won seven games — matching their combined total from 2013 and 2014 — and have a chance to finish with a non-losing record for the first time since 2011.

The experts are mostly going with the home team here. Six of the eight panelists at CBS Sports have the Chiefs, while all of the guys here at SB Nation are going with Kansas City.

I mean this in the nicest possble way but he is the cockroach of coaches and he will be here longer then anyone else. Cornering Coughlin and forcing him to confront the possiblility of not being a head NFL coach triggers the most powerful survival mechanism known to man.

The only other way to never get fired is to stockpile medocore QBs, build a good defense that you dont coach, finish just ouside of the playoffs, and then always be telling your owner that its the QBs fault. Give a man a Fish, and he’ll eat for a day, teach a man to Fish, and he’ll go 7-9 for 10 years and get transfered to Los Angeles.

By all accounts the Cowboys season was a dissappointment as they slumped to a 4-12 record but at least they’ve still got there morals. Defensive cpatain Sean Lee was set to hit a contract incentive for playing time that would of given him a $2,000,000 million dollar bonus for playing more then 80% of the teams defensive snaps.

Andrew McCutchen glad to still be a Pirate, but ‘bothered’ by trade talk


Andrew McCutchen is still a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates, but the star outfielder said the rampant trade talks did “bother” him.

“I’d be lying to you if I told you none of this bothered me,” McCutchen said Saturday at the team’s PirateFest. “Of course it did. I’m human.”

Authentic Mens LeGarrette Blount Jersey Despite that feeling and being “on edge,” McCutchen said he’s where he wants to be.

“My dream is to be a Pirate my whole career,” McCutchen said. “My dream is still to win multiple World Series. We all have those dreams.”

During the winter meetings, Andrew McCutchen could only watch as trade rumors flew.

On Thursday, Pittsburgh general manager Neal Huntington said he talked to multiple teams at the winter meetings about McCutchen, but none of them were willing to meet his steep asking price.

“Our intent coming in here was to have Andrew McCutchen be in our lineup going forward,” Huntington said Thursday. “No one changed that. It’s unlikely someone changes that going forward. We’re not going to close the door, but we’re not going to be making calls.”

In late December 2015, Chapman went to the Yankees for a middling array of prospects, and then in July 2016 was the bounty to deliver a 19-year-old prospect, Gleyber Torres, who is now the jewel of the suddenly stacked Yankees farm system.

This leaves Napoli as the odd man out. The Rangers have said they won’t go after a high-priced free agent, although that doesn’t necessarily refer to Napoli. Maybe the Blue Jays jump in and let Pearce play some outfield. If the Astros aren’t sold on Gurriel, maybe they’ll love Napoli’s leadership on a short-term deal. He could end up in Kansas City as a DH. Or …
Kids Ian Desmond Jersey
So who goes where? We haven’t even factored in the possibility of Jose Bautista playing first base or DH, which makes sense, given his declining range in right field. Remember that teams signing Bautista, Encarnacion and Trumbo lose their first-round pick (unless it’s a top-10 pick). Predictions!

Center Nick Mangold goes on IR, could be done with Jets


Game Womens Steven Hauschka Jersey
Nick Mangold, one of the most accomplished centers in the NFL, was placed on injured reserve Thursday by the New York Jets — a move that could signal the end of his time with the team.

It came as no surprise, as Mangold has battled a severe ankle injury for almost two months. He returned to the lineup Monday night after missing four games, but he aggravated the injury late in the 41-10 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

On Thursday, Mangold flew to North Carolina to visit with specialist Dr. Robert Anderson for a second opinion. A short time later, the Jets made the decision that had been building for weeks.

Elite Womens Niles Paul Jersey Nick Mangold has been a key member of the Jets offensive line for a decade.

Surgery is a possibility, but the team will take a conservative approach at first, a source said.

Mangold, who turns 33 next month, has one year remaining on his contract. His cap charge in 2017 balloons to $9.1 million, raising questions about his future.

The Jets (3-9) likely will try to get younger in the offseason, meaning they could move on from Mangold, a stalwart for more than a decade.

Griffin is due a $1.5 million roster bonus in March. If the Browns want him to stay, they pay it. If they don’t, he becomes a free agent.

Jackson said the more he can evaluate Griffin, the better it is for the team.

Mike Evans has been arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL this season


The Cowboys are 3-point favorites at New York on Sunday night. If they do avenge their loss to the Giants, a win over the Buccaneers would allow the Cowboys to clinch home-field advantage in the NFC with two weeks to spare in the regular season.

Game Youth Nicklas Backstrom Jersey A loss here doesn’t really hurt the Buccaneers’ playoff chances, if only because most projection systems would assume they’re extremely likely to lose in Dallas anyway. It would be aggressive to count the Bucs out, given that they managed to come away with road victories over the Chiefs and Chargers in recent weeks. They would still have a 48 percent chance of making the playoffs with a loss to Dallas, as their three other remaining games, all of which take place in the NFC South, are the ones that will truly determine their playoff future.
Deion Sanders Authentic Jersey
Another one for the Giants, who need to win this one if they lose to the Cowboys. Consecutive losses would drop their playoff odds to just 35 percent with those two NFC East road games to go. Throwing away a playoff berth after starting 8-3 would be impressive; teams who started with eight wins in their first 11 games since the league went to its current playoff format in 2002 have made the playoffs 38 out of 42 times, better than a 90 percent clip.

The Lions, meanwhile, have all but done enough to make it into the postseason. They currently have an 88 percent shot at the playoffs and have the lowly Bears visiting Detroit this week. If they beat the Bears and the Giants, not only are Matthew Stafford & Co. guaranteed a playoff berth, but they have a 44 percent chance of picking up a first-round bye along the way. With a road game against the Cowboys in Week 16, the Lions would rather not need a victory over the best team in the conference to lock up the North.

“They’ve been there before,” said long-snapper Jon Condo, who joined the Raiders as a practice-squad signee when Shell was the coach in 2006. “I think the players, especially in the meeting rooms, they can respect that. It’s not just some guy who’s never played football before.”

Randall Cobb leaves Divisional round game with chest injury


Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb left Saturday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals with a chest injury. He was initially questionable to return before being ruled out for the rest of the game.

Cobb appeared to injure himself while making an amazing one-handed catch, which was ultimately nullified by offsetting penalties. The Packers got flagged for an illegal shift, while Arizona had 12 men on the field. Cobb was carted off the field and taken to the locker room for X-rays.

It’s been a bit of an underwhelming season for Cobb, who was expected to take up the mantle as the new No. 1 receiver after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in training camp. He finished the regular season with 79 catches for 829 yards and six touchdowns, numbers that are way down from his 2014 total of 91 catches, 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Limited Womens Ramon Foster Jersey Carolina not only has that going for it, it also knows it can beat the Seahawks. In Week 6, the Panthers traveled to Seattle, and won in one of the hardest stadiums to get a win in. Seattle held the lead for most of that game, but the Panthers rallied in the fourth quarter to steal the win. Cam Newton threw for 269 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, but he also put up 30 yards on the ground and a touchdown.

Jakub Kindl Youth Jersey The Seahawks didn’t play poorly, with 241 yards and a touchdown from Russell Wilson and 115 yards rushing as a team. But the Panthers held on for longer and outlasted the Seahawks, something that could be a major factor in Sunday’s game.

As far as experts are concerned, the results are somewhat divided, though Carolina has the edge. Over at CBS Sports, six of the eight experts are picking the Panthers to win, while at ESPN, four of the 13 experts think the Seahawks will take it. That leaves nine experts picking Carolina with them. Here at SB Nation, five of the seven experts, along with the OddsShark computer, think the Panthers will win at home.

the Astros signed Carlos Correa for $4.8 million compared to his slot value of $7.2 million


Assessment: The overall pool money will remain unchanged, but as Rany Jazayerli pointed out on Twitter, this should disincentivize teams from tanking (at least a little). What teams with the No. 1 pick had been doing was signing that player for less money than the slot figure, giving them money to spend elsewhere in the draft. Most notably, the Astros signed Carlos Correa for $4.8 million compared to his slot value of $7.2 million, which gave them extra money to draft and sign Lance McCullers later in the draft.

With the slot money for the top picks lowered and redistributed, the draft pools given to each club shouldn’t have such a wide range, or conceivably give the teams at the top of the draft less money. In 2016, pool money ranged from $13.9 million for the Reds to $2.2 million for the Cubs. We’ll have to wait for the details, but anything that discourages tanking is a good thing.

Still, Norris gives the Nats a reliable right-handed hitting veteran to go along with switch-hitting backup Jose Lobaton, who’s better from the left side. The Norris acquisition should also allow Rizzo to focus more of his attention — and the team’s money — on addressing other needs.

At this point, there’s no telling exactly what kind of contract Wieters will sign. But you can be darned sure he’ll outearn Norris by a bunch.

Limited Youth Sergei Fedorov Jersey There’s no telling where exactly the Nationals will apply those savings, but given Rizzo’s history for making offseason splashes — he inked Max Scherzer in 2014 and Daniel Murphy last year — and given that Washington is built to win now, it’s a safe assumption that the funds will be put to good use, probably sooner rather than later.

Maybe it’s to finalize the deal that everyone has been whispering about over the last couple days, the one that could bring Pittsburgh Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen to D.C. Maybe it’s to sign one of the big three free-agent closers (Aroldis Chapman, Kenley Jansen, Mark Melancon). Maybe it’s both.
Elite Womens Phil Taylor Jersey
Regardless, this much is for sure: Rizzo and the Nats aren’t done dealing.
