Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was honored for his special season on Tuesday, as he was named the rookie of the year by the Pro Football Writers Association.

Hunt, 22, is the first Chief to win the award.

Hunt, a third-round pick out of Toledo, rushed for a league-high 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns in 272 carries this season, becoming only the second Chiefs rookie to top 1,000 yards and the first to lead the league in rushing. Hunt also caught 53 passes for 455 yards and three touchdowns. He was the NFL’s offensive rookie of the month twice (September and December).

He was also selected as the co-offensive rookie of the year along with Saints running back Alvin Kamara, a fellow third-round pick who rushed 120 times for 728 yards — a league-leading 6.1 yards per carry — and eight touchdowns. Kamara also caught 81 passes for 826 yards and five touchdowns.

Hunt was joined on the all-rookie team by Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, who converted 38 of 42 field goals after joining the Chiefs in Week 4. Hunt was also joined on the PWFA’s All-AFC team by right tackle Mitchell Schwartz.

The PFWA is made up of accredited writers who cover the NFL and the 32 teams daily. Hunt will find out if he won The Associated Press’ rookie of the year award at the annual NFL Honors program, which will be held in Minneapolis on Feb. 3.

Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons ended the season with a 10-6 record in the regular season and with a 15-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in an NFC divisional playoff game Saturday. Here’s a recap of the season and what’s next:

Season grade: Average. That’s the best way to sum up the Falcons’ up-and-down follow-up to their Super Bowl run in 2016, despite a winning record and postseason appearance. The offense, under new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, didn’t live up to the high expectations that followed their league-leading 33.8 points per game in 2016. They had a dip of more than 10 point in 2017. The defense showed remarkable improvement in all areas under new coordinator Marquand Manuel but still had issues with tackling and sustaining consistent pressure. And special teams failed at times with coverage issues and costly penalties, although kicker Matt Bryant was a stud.

Season in review: All the talk of the Super Bowl hangover died down when the Falcons started on a three-game winning streak, although narrow victories over the Bears and Lions easily could have gone the other way. Then a three-game losing streak in October against AFC East, including a season-low 7 points scored in the Super Bowl rematch against the Patriots, exposed some offensive issues. Then another three-game winning streak over the Cowboys, Seahawks and Buccaneers showed just how potent the offense could be when clicking. But losses to the Vikings and Saints, as the Falcons failed to reach 14 points, humbled the offense once again. Winning three out of four to end the season, all in division play, at least gave the Falcons a chance to make a return trip to the Super Bowl, although they fell short.

Biggest play of season: Deion Jones’ leaping interception of a Drew Brees pass in the end zone secured the Falcons’ 20-17 win over the rival Saints in Week 14. Without that play and without the win, the Falcons might not have been in playoff contention at the end of the season. Jones, a New Orleans native, has three interceptions in three career games against Brees.

He said it: “I think when you look at some of our struggles on the offensive side of the ball, it comes down to us players making plays. You can be in good positions, and when you don’t make the throw or whatever you need to do on those situations, it’s not about the scheme. It’s about the play.” — Matt Ryan

Key offseason questions

Biggest draft need: Addressing the offensive line is a must, particularly on the interior at both guard spots. Center Alex Mack is a Pro Bowler, but he needs an upgrade on each side of him. And Ryan needs guys who will protect him better. The question is how highly do you invest in guard help? Forrest Lamp, a guy the Falcons worked out, was the first guard off the board last year as the sixth pick in the second round to the Chargers. The last time the Falcons drafted a guard in the first three rounds was 2010, when their third-round pick was Mike Johnson.

Free-agency targets: Besides the offensive line market, the Falcons also have to look into possible options at running back and receiver. It’s doubtful they’ll be able to keep backup running back Tevin Coleman for long. He signed through 2018 but it’s highly unlikely the Falcons will be able to keep him long-term after already rewarding Devonta Freeman with $8.25 million per year. There has to be a team out there willing to trade for a running back as talented as Coleman. The Falcons also need a taller, speedy receiver to complement Julio Jones. Yes, they have Mohamed Sanu, but Sanu is more of the intermediate guy. Although Taylor Gabriel has had great flashes, he might not be the ideal guy to fill that role. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Falcons look in the draft for that receiver, either. Pass-rushers and defensive backs are always something the Falcons will investigate in free agency.

Paying Matty Ice: Ryan will enter the final year of his contract next season and is due to make $19.25 million in 2018. Owner Arthur Blank said after Ryan’s MVP season in 2016 that Ryan needed to be “compensated well” for his showing. Although Ryan didn’t follow up with the same type of season, the Falcons know how valuable it is to have a franchise quarterback. The Lions rewarded Matthew Stafford with a contract that averages a league-best $27 million per year and $92 million guaranteed. Ryan and Stafford have the same agent, Tom Condon.

Rewarding their own: The Falcons often talk about focusing on re-signing their own players. Aside from Ryan, some of the guys who performed well in 2017 who deserve to be re-signed are Bryant, defensive end Adrian Clayborn, who led the team in sacks, and free safety Ricardo Allen. Clayborn is set to become an unrestricted free agent. Allen, one of the team leaders, is a restricted free agent. Agents Drew Rosenhaus and Blake Baratz will fight hard to get Allen and Clayborn longer-term deals, respectively, after both played on one-year contracts this season. The 42-year-old Bryant, who made 34 of 39 field goals, continues to be reliable and continues to have success from long distance.

What about Sark? There will be questions about the future of Sarkisian as the offensive coordinator, but Quinn and the players seem to be firmly behind him. Of course, Sarkisian made some costly mistakes. Such should have been expected for a guy who wasn’t used to seeing all the personnel changes that come from an NFL defensive coordinator. But Sarkisian could make a big step next season, so don’t expect Quinn to give up on him just yet. Plus, do the Falcons want Ryan working with yet another offensive coordinator? Probably not.

Cheap Miami Dolphins Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins

Seeing Jon Gruden back in the NFL, a major coup for the Oakland Raiders, has me wondering again.

What is the surest solution for any team looking to shake off the doldrums and make a serious run at the Super Bowl? And, to go along with that, why didn’t it work for the Miami Dolphins when they got their last splashy hire, Nick Saban?

Wayne Huizenga left the league when he couldn’t come up for answers to those questions. He’s the former Dolphins owner who made the huge headline hires of Jimmy Johnson and Saban at different times, and who had Dan Marino as his quarterback for a decade, but still never broke through to the top.

Huizenga was trying to buy a little magic, just as the Raiders are now with their $100 million investment in Gruden. Remember, Oakland is where Gruden started his head coaching career, but the late Al Davis tired of him after a couple of brief postseason appearances and let his popular young coach leave for Tampa Bay.

So what happened? Magic, more or less. A Super Bowl title in his first season there. A flash of charisma, too, that had you thinking dynasty.

A solid roster already in place surely helped. The Bucs had made the playoffs in four of the previous five seasons under Tony Dungy, who got the boot despite an overall regular-season record of 54-42. Right off the bat, Gruden could depend on Pro Bowl defenders like Warren Sapp and John Lynch and Derrick Brooks, who combined to make Tampa Bay No. 1 in fewest points and yards allowed.

There was, however, no elite quarterback. Gruden used Brad Johnson for most of that Super Bowl season, and turned to Rob Johnson and Shaun King for three emergency starts when injuries struck.

There was no immediate promise of help from the NFL draft, either. Tampa Bay traded its first- and second-round picks to Oakland for the rights to sign Gruden away.

Altogether, it seems that Gruden grabbed hold of some very rare lightning in his debut season with the Bucs, because he was only 45-51 after that, with a couple of wild-card playoff losses.

Clearly, this gig is harder than Bill Belichick makes it look. That’s why, in retrospect, it would have been astounding for Saban to thrive immediately with the Dolphins, and why it’s disappointing that he didn’t stick around to see what would happen when a few more things came his way.

No fewer than 11 coaches who already had Super Bowl titles or would eventually win one were working in the league when Saban showed up. All of them had figured out as much as anyone can about succeeding in the NFL, yet two of them – Gruden and three-time Super Bowl champion Joe Gibbs – could do more than match Saban’s 15-17 record in the seasons of 2005 and 2006.

Bill Parcells was 18-14 with Dallas over that same stretch. Bill Cowher was 19-13 with a Super Bowl title during those two years. Tom Coughlin and Brian Billick were 19-13 and failed between them to win a single playoff game.

Trying to be smarter than every other coach is not a viable long-term strategy in this league, unless you’re Belichick and Tom Brady, and having a great organization merely gives you a chance.

Look at Saban’s staff in 2005. His defensive line coach was Dan Quinn, who nearly won the Super Bowl last year as Atlanta’s head coach and has the Falcons on another title hunt this month. Two other future NFL head coaches – Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan – worked assistant jobs on offense. And no matter what anybody thinks of Will Muschamp, the Dolphins’ defensive coordinator in 2005, he and South Carolina just got a bowl victory over Jim Harbaugh, the savant of Ann Arbor and a former NFL head coach himself.

If there are lessons in all of this for Adam Gase, and for those who believe him to be suddenly in over his head, it’s that the NFL makes every coach look confused from time to time, especially those, like Saban, who didn’t have a top quarterback. Makes some very accomplished coaches decide to stay out altogether, too, men like Bobby Bowden and Bear Bryant and Joe Paterno and Tom Osborne.

So it’s good luck to Gruden and the Raiders. He’s a good coach but they have no guarantee of a brilliant relationship, even with glitzy Las Vegas in their future.

That’s because the Raiders are coming off a 6-10 season, just like Miami, and because there are no sure solutions for turning a mediocre team into a monster overnight. None at all.

Cheap Carolina Panthers Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Posted on by
Greg Olsen

Greg Olsen

NEW ORLEANS — Luke Kuechly’s voice began to crack on Sunday as he talked about Jerry Richardson being in the locker room following his final game as the owner of the Carolina Panthers.

Richardson visited with players, most individually, after Sunday’s 31-26 loss to the New Orleans Saints in an NFC wild-card playoff game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Now the team will go up for sale as Richardson, 81, faces an NFL investigation for workplace misconduct. According to a Sports Illustrated article published last month, the team founder paid off at least four former employees to keep quiet allegations of sexual harassment and the use of a racial slur to a former scout.

Despite the allegations, several players have said over the past few weeks they wanted to send Richardson off with a Super Bowl title. That dream ended against a New Orleans team that handed the Panthers (11-6) three of their six losses this season.

Nobody was more emotional about Richardson coming to the locker room than Kuechly, Carolina’s Pro Bowl middle linebacker.

“Everybody on this team owes a lot to him,” he said. “That’s not how we wanted him to …”

Kuechly stopped briefly to gather himself and fight back tears.

“It’s not how we wanted the season to end for him,” he continued. “Unfortunately for us, we’ll miss having him around. He helped a lot of guys in this locker room get where they are. He’s done a great job for the city.

“You talk to anybody in this locker room and they appreciate what he did for us and what he meant to this team and what he provided to everybody in this locker room. In the states of North Carolina and South Carolina, he’s done so much for us. We owe a lot for him. Unfortunately for us, it didn’t end how we wanted it to for him.”

While the allegations against Richardson are serious, players have talked about the man they claim to know and the things that Richardson did for them.

Coach Ron Rivera broke the team down with “Mr. Richardson” after Carolina wrapped up a playoff berth with a win against Tampa Bay in Week 16.

“He’s done a lot for every man in this locker room,” linebacker Thomas Davis said. “For us to not come through today, it definitely hurts.”

Tight end Greg Olsen said he talked briefly to Richardson after the game and thanked him for all he has done for Olsen and his family. Richardson flew with Olsen and his wife to Boston in 2012 to visit with doctors to make sure they had all the information needed to make the right decision on how to deal with a congenital heart defect their son T.J. was born with.

“I’ve made no secret what he’s meant to me and my family,” Olsen said. “What he’s done for me personally and professionally is something I’ll always be grateful for.”

The Panthers are valued at $2.3 billion by Forbes magazine. The organization already has hired Steve Greenberg of New York investment bank Allen & Co. to help sell the team. The company has represented some of the biggest names in business and politics.

Potential buyers have ranged from entertainer Sean “Diddy” Combs and Charlotte native Stephen Curry to Speedway Motorsports Chairman Bruton Smith to former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr.

Richardson said the night SI’s article was published he would not accept any offers on the team until after the season ended, which officially happened on Sunday night.

The team has some stability in that Rivera on Saturday was given a two-year extension that runs through 2020. Rivera said on Sunday that he would like to continue working with interim general manager Marty Hurney, who took over the week before training camp after Dave Gettleman was fired.

Cheap New Orleans Saints Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

New Orleans Saints

New Orleans Saints

METAIRIE, La. — Drew Brees didn’t survive all these years in the NFL by winging it.

Meticulous in his preparation, he is approaching this week as if it’s any other game week. Yes, he’s well aware the New Orleans Saints are in playoffs for the first time since 2013, hosting the Carolina Panthers in an NFC wild-card game Sunday.

He also knows that, two weeks shy of his 39th birthday, the window on his career is closing.

But to change things up this week, to put more pressure or expectations on himself and his teammates, would cheat the process. That would cheat the Saints and their fans.

That would cheat him.

“I approach every game the same way. I prepare like every game could be my last or it’s a playoff game or I’ve got something to prove and I’ve got an edge,” Brees said Wednesday. “So it’s not like, `Oh, the playoffs are here. It’s time to ramp it up.’ It’s always important.

“So for me, the preparation is no different.”

This doesn’t mean he’s blasé about the opportunity the Saints have. New Orleans made the playoffs five times in Brees’ first eight years, reaching the NFC title game in 2006 and winning the Super Bowl three years later.

Since losing in the divisional round in 2013, however, the Saints compiled identical 7-9 finishes in 2014, ’15 and ‘16.

As the Saints limped through the season, many around the league watched in pity, wondering if the last best years of Brees’ career would be wasted.

“We went through a little bit of a roller coaster ride in ’14, ’15 with the roster turnover,” Brees acknowledged. “We were trying to find ourselves again, re-establish what we had built when Sean (Payton) first got here in 2006.

“I think that’s what was realized, was that we needed to go out and find the right type of guys. Really value character, toughness and intelligence in the way that we draft and the way that we go out and look at free agents,” Brees added. “That’s really been the process the last two years. You look around the locker room, you see those types of guys and it’s the reason we’ve been successful.”

Guys like starting right guard Larry Warford and receiver Ted Ginn Jr., third on the team with four touchdown catches. Or defensive end Alex Okafor, whose 4.5 sacks are his most since his first full season with Arizona.

Or rookies Alvin Kamara, whose versatility has helped take some of the load off Brees, and Marshon Lattimore, who leads the Saints with five interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown.

Though the Saints got off to another slow start – 0-2 for the fourth year in a row – Brees said he knew this team was different. Sure enough, a win at Carolina kickstarted a run of eight consecutive victories.

“We knew that man, we were just that close. So much closer than I think most people give us credit for. And you just needed the validation of going out there and getting the W,” Brees said. “It was just the confidence to know that the process is good. We’re doing something right here and it’s something to build on.”

There it is again, process and preparation.

Ginn said he always knew Brees was one of the best to play the game, a lock for the Hall of Fame. But he’s developed an even greater appreciation for him in his short time in New Orleans, just watching what Brees does every day.

“Just seeing how much of a routine he has, how much he does the same thing every day, it kind of helps you get into a routine a little bit. Kind of helps you get into a different situation when you’re coming into something new,” Ginn said.

“It’s been a blessing to be able to see somebody like that.”

Brees is fourth in the NFL in passing with 4,334 yards while the team is fifth in both passing yards per game (262) and rushing yards per game (129.4). His passer rating (103.9) is its highest since 2013.

Brees said he’s more diligent in taking care of his body now than, say, 10 years ago, which means he has to be more efficient with everything else. But while the way he does it might be more compressed, what he’s doing isn’t.

“I know how I learn the best. I know what I need to do in order to put the days’ worth of work behind me so I can move on to the next day,” Brees said.

The ultimate goal, of course, is another Super Bowl. But you can’t get there by skipping steps. So Brees will keep on doing what he’s doing all these years, treating every game like any other, regardless of how big it is.

Cheap Cleveland Browns Jersey Wholesale From China For Free Shipping

Hue Jackson

Hue Jackson

BEREA, Ohio — Hue Jackson apologized to Cleveland Browns fans Monday for two years of misery that included an 0-16 finish in 2017.

“[Winning] is the one thing I came here for, and I have not delivered that to this organization or the football team; for that I apologize,” Jackson said Monday at his end of season news conference. “I promise you this: I am going to do everything in my power from this moment on with the help and resources within our organization to get this organization turned to winning.

“I understand the disappointment that all feel right now because I think we are all working through it, but I know one thing, we are going to do everything we can as an organization to get the Cleveland Browns to where we feel they are a winning football team.”

Jackson added he is “grateful and thankful” that Dee and Jimmy Haslam brought him back to coach in 2018. But there was no sugarcoating the season that just concluded, the second winless season in a 16-game season in NFL history. The historic nature of a winless season isn’t lost on anyone in the team’s facility.

“This is going to be next to my name for the rest of my life,” Jackson said. “This is part of my legacy now, some of the players that are here, the coaches that are here, everybody.”

“Hopefully they forget my name as the years go by,” cornerback Jason McCourty said. “I don’t know … terrible thing to be a part of.”

The BBC even wrote about the winless season after Sunday’s finale. Jackson called it “awful” and said the label will put the Browns “in a war for talent on every front,” including convincing a player like UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen that the Browns would be a good team to join.

“The stigma that comes with that is that we are going to have to do some recruiting everywhere,” Jackson said. “First of all, not just players, we have to re-recruit our fans.”

If social media is any indication, fans are furious with the record and the retention of the coach.

Jackson said there is only one way to fix that: Win some games. As soon as possible.

“Nothing I say is going to make a difference,” Jackson said.

On the field, Jackson said he expects Josh Gordon to stay and “be a contributing member” of the team, and DeShone Kizer definitely will be in the quarterback competition for 2018.

And though he did not firmly commit to hiring an offensive coordinator, Jackson all but said he would — and give the new person playcalling responsibilities.

“I have said before that at some point in time I would like to do [that] differently because I think it is important to coach the team,” Jackson said.

Jackson will make the hire, not general manager John Dorsey.

Staff decisions will come after Jackson takes time to reflect on the staff, but there could be more major changes coming. Some coaches, weary of the losing and culture, might prefer to move on, two league sources said. A year ago, Jackson talked about evaluating, then moved very quickly to hire defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Williams will be retained, according to a league source.

Because all the current coaches are under contract, Jackson and the Browns would have to release them. But with several teams looking for a coach, there will be plenty of openings.

A qualified candidate in-house for offensive coordinator would be running game coordinator Kirby Wilson, but Jackson did not commit that Wilson would be considered.

“I will go back through and look at everything, all the guys that are on our staff and all of those things,” he said. “That is going to be a little time.”

With coaches like Jim Caldwell and John Fox fired, Jackson said he understands he is fortunate to be part of the Browns’ future.

“I get it,” Jackson said. “There are a lot of guys who have better records and all of that who are being let go. I am very fortunate and blessed as I said earlier.”

Cheap Houston Texans Jersey From China For Free Shipping

Posted on by

HOUSTON, Texas –
During the really tough times as he fought to overcome cancer, David Quessenberry would daydream about reaching his lifelong goal of playing in an NFL game.

It was a plan that was derailed when he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and put on hold for years as he underwent treatment for the disease.

Finally healthy, the guard was elevated to the active roster from the practice squad this week and in what his teammates call a storybook turn coach Bill O’Brien said he’ll make his NFL debut on Monday when the Houston Texans host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“It’s been long, it’s been really tough … nothing that I’ve been through has been normal, a normal path since I’ve been drafted,” Quessenberry said. “This is just one of those things that lines up for an awesome opportunity on Monday … football on Christmas.”

Quessenberry was drafted by the Texans in the sixth round in 2013, but sustained a season-ending foot injury before appearing in a game. The following June he was diagnosed with cancer and spent three years fighting the disease before being declared cancer-free and returning to practice in May. He was cut before the season, but signed to the practice squad the next day, where he remained until his promotion this week.

“To overcome what he’s overcome, to be able to step back onto the field in an NFL football game, is an incredible accomplishment for him,” O’Brien said. “And I know for him, he’s such a driven guy, he really wants to go out there and play well.”

And O’Brien was quick to point out that he earned his spot on the roster.

“He doesn’t want to just show up and (say): ‘Yeah, thank you.’ This isn’t a pat on the back,” O’Brien said. “This is a roster move. He’s gotten better every week this week on the practice squad and we think he can help us.”

The 27-year-old lauded his family for their support during his treatment and is excited to share the moment with them on Monday.

“I’m sure it’s going to be special for them. Finally,” he said. “We talked about it and dreamed it and worked for it and now it’s here. For me, I get to play on Monday … on Christmas. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

Quessenberry’s fight with cancer has served as an inspiration for many who are dealing with the disease and he has continued to spend time with cancer patients at local hospitals since his recovery. He wasn’t always comfortable with the notoriety he gained as he worked to beat cancer, but has since made peace with it.

“That was hard for me at first just because I don’t always want to be known like this,” he said. “But then I’ve talked to so many patients and survivors and they’ve said that my story gives them hope or inspiration and that’s something that means a lot to me and something that I’m willing to bear and something that I’ve embraced.”

In June he was honored by the Pro Football Writers of America as the recipient of the George Halas Award. It’s an award given annually to an NFL coach, player or staff member who overcomes adversity to succeed.

Quarterback T.J. Yates, who has known Quessenberry since he was drafted couldn’t be happier for his friend and said his journey belongs in a storybook.

“To see how far he’s come back and to see his body transformation once he got sick, how much weight he lost. How much muscle he lost,” Yates said.

“To work as hard as he did to come back and to get to this point and to get this opportunity, it’s really cool.”

Receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Quessenberry are two of only three players left on Houston’s roster from the 2013 draft.

Since they joined the team the same year, Hopkins has been around to see Quessenberry’s entire path to recovery and has been one of his biggest cheerleaders as he returned to the field.

“That’s amazing for what he’s overcome – cancer,” Hopkins said. “Just for him to even be able to be normal in life and not just come out on the football field, but just be a normal person, a lot of people don’t come back from that, especially what he had and how bad it was. For a guy in my (rookie) class especially, I feel a little bit more happy for him because not many from my class are still here.”

Quessenberry knows it will be emotional when he steps on the field on Monday for his first game. But after working so hard and for so many years to get to this point, he’s not going to let his feelings get in the way of his chance to perform for the Texans, whose offensive line has been decimated by injuries.

“I’m excited just to cut it loose and just play ball and just be like a normal player,” he said. “I’m in the game plan. I’m really excited to suit up and play on Monday.”

Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey From China For Free Shipping

Posted on by

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting running back Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons will be Peyton Barber.

Doug Martin is inactive Monday night for an unspecified violation of team rules, the team said.

Martin has started eight of the nine games he has played in this season, but he has struggled, averaging just 3.1 yards per carry.

He was benched for the second half after he lost a fumble in the Buccaneers’ 24-21 loss to the Detroit Lions in Week 14. He finished with 10 carries for 26 yards and a touchdown. Barber had 12 carries for 58 yards in the loss.

Barber has appeared in all 13 of the Buccaneers’ games this season and is averaging 3.8 yards per carry. He got his only start this season in Week 13 against the Packers, when Martin was out with a concussion. In that game, he rushed for 102 yards on 23 carries.

Martin, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, has 402 yards on 129 carries this season. He has three rushing touchdowns.

Barber, in his second season, has 248 yards on 65 carries. He has rushed for two scores.

Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs

The first five weeks were a lot of fun, but the Chiefs just might be better off now than they were through their 5-0 stretch.

Marcus Peters just had the game of his career in the most important regular-season game of Andy Reid’s Chiefs tenure. The offense is fixed, in large part thanks to Kareem Hunt. The Kansas City Chiefs seem confident, and are firing on all cylinders. Times are good.

So where do we go from here? How optimistic can Chiefs Kingdom dare to be?

It’s not quite as bright as it was in week five, but it might be better this way.

The Chiefs showed a lot of weaknesses in their midseason meltdown, so now it feels like the Chiefs are a flawed team, masquerading as an AFC West champion-to-be and a faux-contender. But it may not be that bleak.

The Chiefs showed a lot of flaws, but they just might be better for them. The offense has been refocused and rebuilt on Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. The defense has looked better in the last two weeks than it looked at any point through the first five. The offense was beaten by cover-two defenses and even meager pressure on Alex Smith, but now they’re busting zones and the offensive line and Alex Smith seem to trust each other again. The defense couldn’t get pressure on a quarterback to save their lives, now they live in the backfield.

These were all issues that would cost the Chiefs a playoff game (or even a playoff spot) if they weren’t resolved eventually. With two convincing divisional wins in the last two weeks, you can make a reasonable argument that the Chiefs are better off now than they were in week five.

Also on today’s show: lots of discussion about Marcus Peters, and Ron Parker and Darrelle Revis give Peters high praise.

Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jersey Wholesale From China For Free Shipping

Posted on by

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Atlanta Falcons on “Monday Night Football” to close out Week 15 in the NFL. The Falcons are six-point favorites, up two from the opener.

The over-under, or total number of points oddsmakers think will be scored, is 47.5, the same as where it opened.

Before you make any bets on Falcons-Bucs, you’ll want to hear what SportsLine Senior Analyst Larry Hartstein has to say.

In Week 14, Hartstein backed the Falcons as home dogs to New Orleans. Atlanta’s pulsating 20-17 victory kept Hartstein’s streak rolling.

It improved him to 11-2 on picks for or against the Dirty Birds since the start of last season. Anyone who has followed his advice is way, way up.

Part of his success: Hartstein was a sportswriter based in Atlanta for 15 years. He has his finger on the pulse of Dan Quinn’s team.

Now he’s gunning for 12-2 and just locked in a strong play for “Monday Night Football.” You can only see it over at SportsLine.

Hartstein knows the past two times these teams met, the Falcons won by 14 and 15 points. In the most recent meeting four weeks ago, the Falcons won 34-20 with wide receiver Julio Jones busting loose for 253 yards and two touchdowns.

And in his past four full games, Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston has committed nine turnovers. He has struggled with injuries this season and has just 14 touchdowns with eight interceptions.

But just because the Falcons have been hotter doesn’t mean they cover a six-point spread on the road on “Monday Night Football.”

In games Winston has played, the Bucs have lost eight times. However, they’ve fallen by one score five times. They were within striking distance of the Lions (3), Packers (6), Bills (3), Cardinals (5) and Patriots (5).

And the Falcons haven’t been lighting up the scoreboard. They scored just nine points at home against the Vikings two weeks ago, then put up 20 against the Saints.

Atlanta has hit 30 points just twice in the past 10 games. Jones has only three 100-yard games and three touchdowns this season. The Falcons largely have sputtered under first-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.

Hartstein is leaning over for Monday night, but what about the spread, which he has made his name picking?

He knows there’s a huge x-factor that ultimately determines the point-spread winner for Falcons-Buccaneers on “Monday Night Football.” And he’s sharing it over at SportsLine.

So which side should you back in Falcons-Buccaneers on “Monday Night Football?” Visit SportsLine now to see what big x-factor determines which side of Falcons-Buccaneers you need to be all over, all from the expert who has nailed 11 of his past 13 Falcons picks, and find out.
