FLORHAM PARK [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-patrick-omameh-jersey]Cheap Patrick Omameh Jersey[/url] , N.J. (AP) Josh McCown realizes that he’s not a long-term answer at quarterback for the New York Jets.

But at 38, he’s also not thinking too far ahead. His focus is squarely on playing the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday and not whether he’ll remain under center the rest of the season – or even continue to play beyond this year.

”I feel good,” McCown said after practice Wednesday. ”Obviously, there are five games left and things can change, but right now, I feel really good.”

Article continues below ...
That’s despite being the third-most sacked quarterback in the NFL this season, going down 35 times so far. McCown has been banged up through the first 11 games, with his left hand and forearm sporting scabs from the 35-27 loss to Carolina on Sunday.

He’s in terrific shape, though, hardly appearing to be a guy in the twilight of his career.

”It’s a credit to those guys,” he said of the Jets’ training staff. ”The great thing about me is that my boys are in seventh and eighth grade [url=http://www.authenticsandiegochargers.com/cheap-uchenna-nwosu-jersey]Cheap Uchenna Nwosu Jersey[/url] , so when I get off in the offseason, I’m at home playing hoops with them. I never stop because of my kids’ age. They don’t let me.

”We’ll see. I feel really good and hopefully can maintain this moving forward.”

The Jets are 4-7 and in danger of missing the playoffs for the seventh straight season. That has fans focusing on the future, eager to see if Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg might show some glimmer of hope in the last five games.

The cross-town Giants are taking that approach, sitting Eli Manning in favor of Geno Smith and eventually Davis Webb. Todd Bowles and the Jets are sticking with McCown, though, and he hasn’t even considered benching the veteran.

”No thought to it,” Bowles said. ”Josh is playing very well.”

McCown is having the best overall season of his 15-year NFL career, setting career highs with 17 touchdowns and 2,549 yards passing. He has eight interceptions, but his 67.3 percent completion rate is among the NFL’s leaders. McCown also leads the Jets with three touchdown runs, proving he’s still got plenty of spring in his step.

The major knock on McCown is the mistakes he has made – along with the rest of the Jets – in the fourth quarter and late in games. Half of his interceptions have come in the final quarter [url=http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-roquan-smith-jersey]Cheap Roquan Smith Jersey[/url] , where the Jets have blown leads in three of their past four losses.

”Yeah, without getting into detail, we did address it to a degree today,” McCown said. ”So, hopefully that will change.”

He is signed only for this season, a one-year deal worth $6 million. So, his future with the team beyond Week 17 is uncertain.

While many fans and media assume the Jets will target a potential franchise quarterback with their first-round draft pick, it’s not a given that McCown won’t be back to serve as a mentor to whomever that might be.

Retirement isn’t on his mind right now, and he doesn’t have a timetable for when he’d have to make that decision.

”Well, I’ll say that it is certainly when you feel like you’ve been chasing this level that you believe you can play at for a long time and you start to feel like you’re scratching the surface in doing some of those things and settling into a system that you like, it’s hard to end it and be done [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-vita-vea-jersey]Buccaneers Vita Vea Jersey[/url] ,” he said.

”At the same time, too, if you are going to be done, it’s nice of you to say that you played your best ball at the end, so we’ll see how it goes.

”I love being in the system and it would be fun to play in the system for two years in a row. I would love to see where I can take that, so we’ll see. Right now, the focus is on Kansas City.”

Jets fans are understandably hesitant about bringing back a veteran coming off a career year – since they lived through that very thing a year ago.

Ryan Fitzpatrick returned on the eve of training camp after the sides finally agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal. But a year after he set a franchise record with 31 touchdown passes, Fitzpatrick fizzled. He became a turnover machine with 17 interceptions, was benched a few times and was a major reason for New York’s 5-11 mark with a team that had serious playoff aspirations.

The difference now, though [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-stephen-gostkowski-jersey]Cheap Stephen Gostkowski Jersey[/url] , is the progress McCown has appeared to make in John Morton’s system, even at this advanced stage of his career.

”Yeah, I think there is always growth that can happen,” said McCown, who estimated that he’s played for 13 or 14 offensive coordinators.

”I just assume that when you watch offenses who have been together for a while, the nuance that they play with, I think it’s obvious and reflective of the time spent together. So, I would assume you have the opportunity to grow in that aspect.

”But again, those situations take care of themselves and I’m just focused on Kansas City right now.”

DENVER (AP) The Kansas City Chiefs are taking the bubble wrap off rookie QB Patrick Mahomes II in their regular-season finale at Denver [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkjets.com/cheap-trenton-cannon-jersey]Cheap Trenton Cannon Jersey[/url] , where the Broncos are taking another look at Paxton Lynch , who’s in danger of being their most disappointing first-round pick since Marcus Nash in 1998.

Mahomes, chosen 10th overall in the 2017 draft out of Texas Tech, spent all season watching and waiting while Alex Smith led the league with a 104.7 rating and topped 4,000 yards passing for the first time in his 13th NFL season – and likely his last in Kansas City.

Having clinched the middling AFC West again, the Chiefs (9-6) have the luxury of sneaking a peek at their future QB while resting other starters and treating Sunday’s game as a bye before the playoffs begin next week.

Article continues below ...
”We’re in a position where we can do that,” coach Andy Reid said. ”It gives the kid some experience, that’s the reason. Listen, the Broncos are a good football team, real good defense. It’ll be a great experience to play against that crew.”

Denver’s defense is ranked second [url=http://www.authenticsbaltimoreravens.com/cheap-kenny-young-jersey]Cheap Kenny Young Jersey[/url] , behind only Minnesota’s.

”There is nothing else better than getting to go against the best,” Mahomes said as he prepared for his first NFL start.

”I’m not eager to play the second guy,” said Broncos star linebacker Von Miller . ”He is the guy of the future, though. So, it’s good to go and play against him for the future. But you just would like the circumstances to be totally different.

”You would like this game to mean more than what it means, and you would like for all of the starters to play. I would like a lot of different stuff to happen in 2017 and it didn’t happen.”

The Broncos’ offense was dismal with a rotation of quarterbacks, poor play up front and a lack of depth behind wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and running back C.J. Anderson , both of whom can reach 1,000 yards Sunday.

Denver (5-10) is missing out on the playoff party for a second straight season.

They flopped under rookie head coach Vance Joseph, losing eight in a row for the first time in a half century [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-rex-burkhead-jersey]Cheap Rex Burkhead Jersey[/url] , and a so-far dismal draft class led by Garett Bolles, who leads the league in holding penalties.

Lynch, Denver’s top pick last year, sprained his left ankle in his only start against Oakland on Nov. 26, when he threw for just 41 yards, and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said that Lynch was still gimpy at practice this week.

Joseph said he doesn’t care if Lynch is facing backups, ”you need something to go on. The more he plays, the better he is going to get. I think it’s one part evaluation, but it’s one part getting him ready for his future, also. It’s not a waste at all.

”It’s going to be good for him to go play for the evaluation and for the personal growth as a quarterback.”

Other subplots Sunday as the Chiefs seek their first five-game winning streak over the Broncos since 1970-73:

MOVING ON: Lynch may be down to his last chance to impress the Broncos. General manager John Elway and his top deputy Matt Russell began their tour of college QBs on the sideline at the Potato Bowl in Boise [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkjets.com/cheap-sam-darnold-jersey]Cheap Sam Darnold Jersey[/url] , Idaho, where they scouted Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen.

”I didn’t even know they were out there doing any of that,” Lynch said. ”I really wasn’t paying any attention to it.”

The Broncos could be moving on from any or all of their QBs, including Trevor Siemian, in 2018.

”I’ll say this, we’ve had three starters this year,” Joseph said. ”It’s not ideal at all. We have to fix and rectify that position.”

HOT SEAT: An even bigger debate in Denver is whether Joseph deserves a second season and if Elway will be looking for his fourth head coach in five seasons.

Of the six job openings in 2016, Joseph inherited what was largely considered the best situation with the Broncos coming off a 9-7 season.

While the Broncos were nose-diving to their worst season since their awful AFL days, Doug Marrone’s Jaguars, Sean McVay’s Rams [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-cassius-marsh-jersey]Cheap Cassius Marsh Jersey[/url] , Anthony Lynn’s Chargers and Sean McDermott’s Bills all wrangled for playoff berths and Kyle Shanahan’s 49ers overcame an 0-9 stumble to win five of their past six.

IN THE HUNT: With 1,292 yards rushing, Chiefs rookie running back Kareem Hunt is 13 yards behind Todd Gurley and a yard ahead of Le’Veon Bell for the NFL rushing title. The Rams, Steelers and Chiefs are all in the playoffs, so there’s no telling how much work any of the three running backs will get.

ON THE RISE: The Chiefs went through their own prolonged slump after a 5-0 start. They lost six of seven, including four straight, before bouncing back to win their past three games and clinch another division crown.

”We flopped there for a few games and weren’t looking too good, so I’m proud of everybody sticking together,” Reid said.

LAKE FOREST [url=http://www.authenticscarolinapanthers.com/cheap-rashaan-gaulden-jersey]Cheap Rashaan Gaulden Jersey[/url] , Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears are piling up losses and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky understands what that means.

All eyes are on him.

”Everyone’s looking toward you,” Trubisky said. ”They’re all seeing how you react and I love that because I feel like I know how to handle these situations and I still have all the confidence in the world in my guys that we can turn this around next week and we can really go on a run.”

Article continues below ...
The freefalling Bears (3-8) bring a four-game losing streak into Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

And Chicago’s rookie quarterback looks to bounce back from his worst outing against the team that could have drafted him with the No. 2 overall pick.

The Bears instead made a bold move by trading up a spot with the 49ers to grab him. And the results so far have been mixed.

In the seven starts since he took over for the struggling Mike Glennon, Trubisky has shown at times a strong arm and the ability to extend plays with his quickness. But against Philadelphia last week, it was simply rough going.

Facing the team with the NFL’s best record [url=http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-minkah-fitzpatrick-jersey]Dolphins Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey[/url] , Trubisky looked like an overmatched rookie.

He was 17 of 33 for 147 yards with two interceptions, two sacks and two fumbles. Poor footwork led to Trubisky overthrowing several receivers and posting a career-low 38.3 passer rating.

Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains wouldn’t pin it all on his quarterback, saying the receivers weren’t always where they needed to be. Adding to the Bears’ woes was the fact that they managed just 6 yards rushing – the second-lowest total in franchise history.

Trubisky also found himself under pressure behind a shaky line even though the Eagles didn’t blitz much. But he reverted to some of his college habits when it came to his footwork.

”He got caught bouncing a little bit,” Loggains said. ”You know it was a tendency he had in college and we talked to him a lot about keeping his shoulders and head still. And he did get hoppy a little bit [url=http://www.authenticsdallascowboys.com/cheap-connor-williams-jersey]Cheap Connor Williams Jersey[/url] , and there were some throws that were errant because of that and something we’re going to keep working and grinding on that way.”

Trubisky has been spending extra time working on his footwork and reviewing video. He seems level-headed and is maintaining a positive approach even though things aren’t going well at the moment for him or the team.

He ranks last among regular quarterbacks with a 52.8 percent completion rate and has been sacked 19 times. The Bears, meanwhile, have wiped out the good will they were starting to build.

Back-to-back wins followed by a tight loss at New Orleans left them feeling pretty good heading into their bye. But the three games since then have been discouraging.

”(Teammates) know that I’m buying in even more, I’m working even harder and they know that I care about this team and my teammates and that we’re going to get this thing right and hopefully that kind of behavior is contagious [url=http://www.seahawksauthorizedshops.com/authentic-shaquem-griffin-jersey]Seahawks Shaquem Griffin Jersey[/url] ,” Trubisky said.

”And I believe it is and just being around the locker room, being around those guys, talking to them one-on-one and just seeing how they feel. We’re still positive. We still have good confidence. And that just needs to carry over each day. Have good practices and go out there and try to get a win on Sunday.”

NOTES: ILB Danny Trevathan (strained calf) returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis. He was injured Oct. 29 at New Orleans, leaving the defense without the signal caller the past three games. ”I thought he looked good today [url=http://www.bengalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jessie-bates-iii-jersey]Bengals Jessie Bates III Jersey[/url] ,” Coach John Fox said. ”Anytime you have a starter out it can be problematic. But the rest of the players have to carry the load. It would be good to potentially have him back this week.” … Fox said the Bears’ decision to waive WR Tre McBride on Tuesday was about ”churning the roster.” He would not say if McBride was involved in a heated argument in the hallway on Monday that reporters overheard. … The Bears are bringing back LB Lamar Houston, claiming him off waivers from the Houston Texans. The 30-year-old Houston appeared in five games for the Texans. He played for Chicago from 2014-16 before being released on Sept. 6.

Decorating your 21st century interior in a Japanese manner has become very popular. The Japanese artifacts [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-martavis-bryant-jersey]Cheap Martavis Bryant Jersey[/url] , like the samurai swords, are proof of great taste not only because of their eye catching colors and shapes but because they hold a lot of meaning. They represent moral values like patience, discipline, honor, loyalty and determination. The modern world has forgot some very important codes, but their symbols still exist as a reminder in the Japanese works of art that distinguish some homes or offices.

The samurai swords, for example, are very used objects of decoration. People who appreciate martial arts or the Japanese life style often hang them on walls. Owning samurai swords means you appreciate Japanese history and the virtues that this object stood for in an antique society. For those of you with the good idea of buying samurai swords here are some hints about these beautiful and meaningful objects and their philosophy. Knowing how they are made and their value will make them more treasured decorating objects.

The value of the samurai swords comes not only from their handcrafting [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ronald-jones-ii-jersey]Buccaneers Ronald Jones II Jersey[/url] , but also from the fact that they are a symbol of the worrier. The samurai swords define power, duty, responsibility, self-defense and ethics. The samurai swords were weapons used by a class of people who cherished their freedom above all and defended it with great skill. The samurai swords were used in hand to hand combat which was a very demanding perhaps the most, form of combat. Having to fight with a sharp weapon required skill of body and mind, abilities, reflexes and technique. Only through a lot of practice, exercise and patience one could become able to handle the samurai swords in order to protect the code of honor.

The Samurai (knights-retainers) were also called Bushi (warriors) and their most treasured weapons were the samurai swords. They considered the swords a part of themselves and sometimes believed the swords were the soul of their worriership. They gave their samurai swords names and awarded them medals. Some samurai worriers even died trying to retrieve their treasured samurai swords for their Shogun (the most powerful samurai worrier for a period). Bushido means Way of the Warrior and the heart of the Bushido philosophy [url=http://www.authenticcincinnatibengals.com/cheap-logan-woodside-jersey]Cheap Logan Woodside Jersey[/url] , which lead their beliefs and conduct, is freedom from fear. This meant they had no fear of dying. They were able to use their peace of mind to give themselves power to serve their master faithfully to the death. Therefore, duty and loyalty were a great part of their philosophy. Their way of life ranked them at the top of the social hierarchy in Japan for hundreds of years until 19th century.

Artisans of ancient time put a lot of thought in the creation of samurai swords. They had to create weapons that were not too heavy to handle, nor too rigid to brake off. They discovered sharp samurai swords, used against an armor, broke and that samurai swords made of soft steel were flexible and light. So, they considered the most appropriate weight for samurai swords would have been around 2-3 pounds. However, to create such samurai swords would have meant a lot work.

There were many methods used to handcraft samurai swords. Some used the repeated and tiring process of heating and folding of steel. The blades had to be polished afterwards carefully and the smiths engraved their signature on their work of art. The samurai swords were proof of great handcrafting skills [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-donald-trump-jersey]Cheap Donald Trump Jersey[/url] , which meant that the person who created them possessed some unique virtues. Like for any art object, to create samurai swords meant to put soul in your creation, to invest patience and will together with intelligence to obtain the best results possible. A lot of artists worked on their detailed ornaments of the hilt, on their handle bindings and sheaths and the results were samurai swords worth being worn by worriers.

These virtues have been forgotten as the modern society no longer cares, respects or praises the military man as much as in the past. The samurai were (and still are) highly appreciated figures of history. The samurai swords were priceless and were identified with the worrier class. Made from the heat and pounding of skilled smiths, the samurai swords brought honor and the spirit of the true worrier to those who carried them. Because of this, many modern people buy samurai swords as a reminder of that time and those values. Samurai swords decorate today's homes, as symbols [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-phillip-dorsett-jersey]Cheap Phillip Dorsett Jersey[/url] , for those who know what true beauty means virtue and honor.

PITTSBURGH (AP) James Harrison is taking another shot at retirement [url=http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-keke-coutee-jersey]Texans Keke Coutee Jersey[/url] , and this time it’s likely to stick for the longtime Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker.

The five-time Pro Bowler, two-time All Pro and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year announced on Instagram early Monday he is stepping away from the game following a 15-year career that saw him go from undrafted free agent to one of the most feared players in the league.

Harrison, 39, posted a collage of pictures of his two sons and noted he’s ”missed way too much for way too long … and I’m done.”

Article continues below ...
Harrison played nearly his entire career with the Steelers [url=http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mason-cole-jersey]Cardinals Mason Cole Jersey[/url] , collecting 80.5 of his 84.5 career sacks while wearing black and gold, a franchise record. He spent the 2013 season in Cincinnati and signed with New England late last season, appearing in all three playoff games for the Patriots, including their Super Bowl loss to Philadelphia.

This is the second time Harrison has called it quits. He retired briefly in September 2014 only to be lured back to the Steelers. He remained productive into his late 30s [url=http://www.authenticcincinnatibengals.com/cheap-mark-walton-jersey]Cheap Mark Walton Jersey[/url] , registering at least five sacks from 2014-16. Not bad for a player who went undrafted after graduating from Kent State and spent the early portion of his career primarily on special teams.

Harrison compensated for his relative lack of height – he’s listed at 6-feet tall – with remarkable strength and a relentlessness that made him one of the best edge rushers in the league and a vital part of a team that reached the Super Bowl three times from 2005-10, winning it twice.

His 100-yard interception return for a touchdown on the final play of the first half of the 2009 Super Bowl is one of the most iconic in NFL history.

Harrison’s physical play at times ran him into trouble with the league office. He was fined four times during the 2010 season alone for what the NFL considered illegal or unnecessary hits. Harrison lashed out at commissioner Roger Goodell, calling him ”a crook” in a 2011 magazine article.

Harrison twice left the Steelers. He signed a deal with Cincinnati in the spring of 2013 but played only sparingly, leading him to retire in the fall of 2014. It lasted all of 18 days. He returned to Pittsburgh after injuries decimated the team’s linebacker group and in his second act became a valuable leader on the field and elsewhere [url=http://www.redskinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-da_ron-payne-jersey]Redskins Da'Ron Payne Jersey[/url] , often including teammates in his draining (and well-documented) offseason workout regiments in Arizona.

At a position where few last into their mid-30s, Harrison continued to thrive. He finished among the top three on the team in sacks every year from 2014-16, and his pressure forced a hold by Kansas City left tackle Eric Fisher that negated the tying two-point conversion by the Chiefs in the divisional round of the 2016 playoffs.

Harrison signed a two-year deal last spring that would have kept him in Pittsburgh through his 40th birthday. He played sparingly for much of 2017 and the Steelers granted him his release in December. The Patriots quickly scooped him up. He had two sacks in his debut with New England in the 2017 regular-season finale and added seven more tackles in the playoffs.

When the sun is shimmering so bright and hot [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-david-andrews-jersey]Cheap David Andrews Jersey[/url] , displaying the clear waters of the mysterious deep, it is the moment to go fishing. Florida Fishing is a way of life and relaxation to the residents and to the thousands of tourists that visit and explore the state's natural resources. Fishing in Florida is an experience to beat all adventures on ground and on sea.
Fishing can either be a hobby or an occupation. It is the act of attempting to take hold of a cold-blooded vertebra that resides in water. Hooking a fish is a breathtaking endeavor. Fish are found in a territory that cannot be inhabited by people. In the sea is where fishing is actualized as an industry or a sport.

The geographical qualities of the state of Florida can be appreciated for its bodies of water surrounding it. This peninsula, a land extending to the surface of a body of water, is situated in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico [url=http://www.authenticsphiladelphiaeagles.com/cheap-dallas-goedert-jersey]Cheap Dallas Goedert Jersey[/url] , the Atlantic Ocean and the Straits of Florida. It is the solitary municipality in the United States of America that strips around the edges of the Mexican Gulf and the Atlantic Ocean.

Florida Fishing is indeed commerce, a competitive activity and an enjoyable recreation filled with satisfaction and thrills. When in Florida, one can avail of charters or guides in catching fish and other similar events. The experts one can hire will lead the discovery and exploration of the sites one desires to visit. The captains will escort the visitor to the locality where the most common and abundant group of fish can be found. One will also be provided with the information related to the climate conditions, temperature [url=http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-vita-vea-jersey]Buccaneers Vita Vea Jersey[/url] , wind and rainfall before casting out to sea.

Fishing in Florida is a sport too. Men and women engaged in such a pursuit are filled with adrenalin the instant an initial sighting of various types of fish is made. One can go on kayak for a fishing expedition of redfish or take one's fishing paraphernalia to Mosquito Lagoon and try to catch some water vertebrae with gills.

The abundant supply of marine resources and a healthy condition of a localized collection of fish is a vital part of the state's appeal.

BALTIMORE (AP) Antonio Brown’s game-winning touchdown last Christmas night still hasn’t faded from Eric Weddle’s memory.

Probably never will.

The score capped a 21-point fourth quarter for the Pittsburgh Steelers [url=http://www.authenticsmiamidolphins.com/cheap-jerome-baker-jersey]Cheap Jerome Baker Jersey[/url] , who clinched the AFC North title with a 31-27 victory over Baltimore. Weddle and the Ravens had their playoff hopes end with this bitter defeat against their longtime rivals.

Article continues below ...
”You never forget the bad plays or the plays that are so monumental to your season,” said Weddle, who had Brown in his grasp as the wide receiver stretched into the end zone to complete the 4-yard play. ”We’ve never forgotten that play, that game.”

Not long after the season ended, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome embarked on a mission to add depth to a defensive backfield that was decimated by injury on that pivotal night.

Newsome signed free agents Brandon Carr and Tony Jefferson, then drafted cornerback Marlon Humphrey with the team’s top draft pick.

On Sunday, the Ravens (2-1) will seek revenge against the Steelers (2-1) in a matchup for first place in the division. Should the game come down to the closing minutes [url=http://www.authenticnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-dion-lewis-jersey]Cheap Dion Lewis Jersey[/url] , Baltimore expects a different ending.

”We’ve made strides this offseason of building our team to get in that situation and win the game,” Weddle said. ”We’ve added players (through) free agency and in the draft to build our team for that situation. Should it come, we’ll be ready for it and ready to go win the game.”

It’s hard to predict how the Ravens’ mindset will impact the rematch.

”Some guys are motivated by experiences such as that, some guys do not need it,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin said. ”I really think it is individual as a fingerprint.”

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has turned the page, even though he directed a 75-yard touchdown drive that put Baltimore ahead with 1:09 left.

”It does not matter what happened,” he insisted. ”There is already enough motivation for us to go out there and kick some butt.”

Some things to know about Sunday’s AFC North showdown:

ABOUT LAST WEEK: Both teams are coming off upset losses. Pittsburgh fell in overtime at Chicago and the Ravens were dismantled in London by Jacksonville.

Asked if playing the Ravens will keep his team focused [url=http://www.authentictampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-vita-vea-jersey]Cheap Vita Vea Jersey[/url] , Tomlin replied, ”I think the opponent is irrelevant. It is about us preparing and playing at the level of our capabilities, just like it is for Baltimore.”

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said, ”Last week, we’re past it. We’re done with it. We’ve looked at it and we’ve moved on from it.”

MIND GAMES: The Ravens rank last in the NFL in total offense and managed only one first down in the first half last week. The Steelers have been only slightly better on offense, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger went public with his analysis of the situation.

”The quarterback needs to play better ,” he declared.

The Ravens aren’t buying it.

”Oh [url=http://www.authenticslosangelesrams.com/cheap-john-kelly-jersey]Cheap John Kelly Jersey[/url] , Ben. He is setting us up. He is playing mind games,” linebacker Terrell Suggs said. ”I know what he is doing. I am not going to let him fool me with trickery and Jedi mind tricks.”

TIGHT SQUEEZE: The past four games between these teams were decided by one score or less. In 12 of the past 18 games in this rivalry, the difference has been no more than a field goal.

UNFRIENDLY NEST: The Steelers are just 3-7 in Baltimore under Tomlin and have beaten the Ravens on the road just once since 2011, the victory coming in 2012 with Roethlisberger sidelined.

The Steelers are averaging just 16.1 points in Baltimore over the past decade.

”It seems like when we play this game one side always starts high, whether we go down and score the opening series and then we can’t get anything after that or vice versa,” Roethlisberger said. ”We just have to make sure that we don’t get frustrated.”

UNITED WE STAND: Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey says the team will stand for the national anthem on Sunday.

Pittsburgh chose to remain in the tunnel during the anthem in Chicago in an effort to stay out of the ongoing debate over anthem protests. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger [url=http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-cody-latimer-jersey]Cheap Cody Latimer Jersey[/url] , stood alone on the fringe of the field while the anthem played.

The fallout sent the franchise into two days of spin control. That won’t be an issue in Baltimore.

”I think if you’re divided you get brought together,” Roethlisberger said. ”This is a group that is very close and I feel strongly that we will be stronger than ever.”

The Ravens have a plan in place for their action on the sideline during the anthem, but are keeping it to themselves.

LAKE FOREST [url=http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jerome-baker-jersey]Dolphins Jerome Baker Jersey[/url] , Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears were interviewing Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy for their head coaching job.

Nagy has spent 10 seasons working under And[img]http://www.sndpic.com//nike_nfl_jerseys/nike_indianapolis_colts/nike_colts_582.jpg[/img]y Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. He did not call plays until late this season, but has drawn praise for his work with Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. In Chicago [url=http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mike-gesicki-jersey]Dolphins Mike Gesicki Jersey[/url] , he would be trying to develop No. 2 overall draft pick Mitchell Trubisky.

The Chiefs won the AFC West, only to blow an 18-point halftime lead in a playoff loss to Tennessee on Saturday. The Bears met with Nagy in Kansas City on Sunday.

THOUSAND OAKS [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-ryan-switzer-jersey]Cheap Ryan Switzer Jersey[/url] , Calif. (AP) Just four games into Sean McVay’s tenure, the Los Angeles Rams look nothing like the sad-sack franchise that hasn’t had a winning season since its new head coach was in high school back in 2003.

The Rams are 3-1 and on top of the NFC West after their 35-30 comeback victory over Dallas in their most impressive performance since the franchise’s return to Los Angeles last year. Even more improbably, the Rams are doing it with offensive flair: They lead the NFL with 142 points after fielding the league’s worst offense in each of the past two seasons.

”The guys have done everything we’ve asked,” McVay said Monday. ”We’ve got a lot of good players, and we’ve got great coaches that are leading the way, and I feel fortunate to be a part of that.”

Article continues below ...
Yes, the Rams also started 3-1 in their homecoming season under coach Jeff Fisher before losing 11 of their final 12. But the Rams think this year’s start feels different – more real [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-johnny-townsend-jersey]Cheap Johnny Townsend Jersey[/url] , more exciting and more likely to lead to long-lasting success, particularly on offense.

The 2016 Rams scored just 63 points in their first four games. These Rams have more than doubled that total under the direction of McVay, who already has fashioned a potent offense out of the remnants of last season’s team and a few important additions.
[img]http://www.sndpic.com//nike_nfl_jerseys/nike_indianapolis_colts/nike_colts_630.jpg[/img]
”I feel like we are on the right page right now,” said receiver Tavon Austin, who rushed six times for 48 yards while McVay used him as a ball-carrier against the Cowboys. ”Coach had a good plan for us. He worked us to death in practice. He works us until we get it. If anyone knows Coach Sean, he demands perfection. That’s (what) I like about him.”

After Jared Goff went 0-7 as a starter last season, the No. 1 pick’s quarterback rating has almost doubled to 112.2. Todd Gurley has already scored more touchdowns this season (seven) than he did in all of last season [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-nick-nelson-jersey]Cheap Nick Nelson Jersey[/url] , and the running back is also the Rams’ leading receiver with 20 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns.

Left tackle Andrew Whitworth has made one of the NFL’s biggest free-agent impacts, stabilizing the Rams’ lousy line and providing leadership. New receivers Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods have teamed with remarkable rookie Cooper Kupp to provide plenty of targets for Goff, who has already passed for 1,072 yards.

Gurley was the NFC’s offensive player of the month for September, rebounding from a dismal 2016 in which he described the Rams’ scheme as a ”middle school offense.” He has recaptured his dynamic rookie form at the center of McVay’s offense, and he was at his best against the Cowboys, gaining 215 yards from scrimmage as a runner and a receiver who scored on a 53-yard catch.

”What good coaches do is they put their players in situations to have success [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-brandon-parker-jersey]Cheap Brandon Parker Jersey[/url] , but ultimately those players are the ones that are making those plays,” McVay said. ”You feel fortunate to be a part of that.”

Even kicker Greg Zuerlein has been perfect on 14 field goal attempts, including his franchise-record seven at Dallas. The Rams’ inability to finish those drives with touchdowns is gnawing at McVay, but that’s a tiny complaint compared to the massive problems faced by this offense in previous seasons.

When asked about those red-zone failures, McVay blamed himself as the Rams’ play-caller. Los Angeles scored just one touchdown on four trips inside the Dallas 20, and McVay lamented his own decisions as the only thing standing between the Rams and even more points.

”What you try to do is you look at what are those things that can be corrected,” McVay said. ”We did move the football fairly well [url=http://www.authenticsoaklandraiders.com/cheap-martavis-bryant-jersey]Cheap Martavis Bryant Jersey[/url] , but I think just looking at the red zone overall, that’s something we’ve got to do a better job of, and I think that starts with me.”
