Run game woes forcing Vikings to lean on Kirk Cousins’ arm

NFL JERSEYS
Cousins and Jared Goff went a combined 59-of-83 passing for 887 yards, with eight passing touchdowns and no interceptions in their Thursday night shootout. This was the second game in NFL history to feature five 100-yard receivers (Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Cooper Kupp, Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods), according to Elias. After his third straight game with 48 passing attempts or more, Cousins is on pace to break Matthew Stafford’s 2012 record of 727 passing attempts in a season by 29. And he’s already eclipsed several team records, having thrown the third-most touchdown passes (10) and the most passing yards by any Vikings quarterback (1,387) in the franchise’s first four games. Those numbers are great, but a look at the other side of the equation -- Minnesota’s inability to generate…

How bad is the Patriots’ start? Statistics paint a bleak picture

NFL JERSEYS
Is the New England Patriots' season already in jeopardy? Or is this a familiar stutter-step that Patriots fans will laugh about while their team hoists another Lombardi trophy in February? The answers will play out over the course of the season, but for now, the Patriots and their fans aren't laughing,cheap nike nfl jerseys from china Sunday night's 26-10 loss to the Detroit Lions wasn't an ordinary loss. It was one of the worst in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era. Consider: Not only did the Patriots finish with just 209 total yards, but 52 of them came on their final, garbage-time drive. So for nearly 58 minutes, the Patriots were thoroughly shut down by a team that looked pedestrian at best in losing its first two games. And 3-0 Miami…

Performance consultant tees up advice for Cowboys kicker Brett Maher

NFL JERSEYS
When Brett Maher, the Cowboys’ new kicker, came onto the field for a 37-yard field goal attempt in the middle of the first quarter, Gillham sat up a little straighter. When Maher’s kick split the uprights, he was like millions of other Cowboys fans. “I’m human, so of course I’m happy, cheap nfl nike jerseys from china but I don’t want to say it was ‘relief,’ because that implies there was some doubt,” Gillham said. “Outside of the fact that every kicker is human and therefore will miss at some point, there was no doubt.” For the past 20 months, Gillham has served as a sports-performance consultant for Maher. He is not a kicking guru. He is not a clinical sports psychologist, either. To Maher, he is critical to his…

NFL JERSEYS
During a quiet moment recently in the New York Jets' quarterback room, Josh McCown pulled out his tablet and punched up a video of his son's first football game of the season.

Aaron Donald unhappy with Week 1 performance

NFL JERSEYS
Aaron Donald played in the season opener with peace of mind. With a six-year, $135 million extension in hand, the Los Angeles Rams star defensive tackle didn't have to worry about his future.

Remade Rams defense starts slow, then slams the door

NFL JERSEYS
It was the first series of the season opener and a long-anticipated look at the Los Angeles Rams' new star-studded defense. The result was hardly what was expected. Under a pile of blue-and-white jerseys, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch ran up the middle, dragging a pile that included defensive linemen Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers, among others, across the goal line for a 10-yard touchdown.china nike nfl jerseys cheap If anything was apparent Monday in the Rams' 33-13 victory over the Raiders at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, it was that the made-over defense needed at least a half to come together and knock off any rust. And there's still plenty of room for improvement. "That's just the first game jitters man," cornerback Marcus Peters said after the game.…

Chris Thompson returns as lightning to Adrian Peterson’s thunder

NFL JERSEYS
A number of plays all announced the same thing Sunday: Chris Thompson is back. There was the burst he displayed on an outside zone run out of a run-pass option look.

There was the way he won on a route that resulted in a touchdown catch.nike nfl jerseys cheap china They were the sort of plays Washington missed after he was lost for the season in 2017 after breaking his leg. The Redskins want to get Thompson 12 to 15 touches per game, knowing he could break off a long one at any time. He’ll get his next chance vs. Indianapolis on Sunday; the Colts allowed Cincinnati’s Joe Mixon 95 yards on 17 rushing attempts…

I expect him to play way better."cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal In a 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Keenum finished a robust 25-of-39 passing for 329 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.
