Gronk? Kelce? Right now, NFL’s top tight end may be Zach Ertz

cheap nfl jerseys
It was Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz versus New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, and it was no contest. With the Eagles facing a first-and-goal at the 10-yard line late in the second quarter of Thursday's game, Ertz sold an inside route to get Jenkins' body turned and then broke for the corner in one fluid, defender-shedding motion. Suddenly wide open, Ertz easily secured the touchdown pass from quarterback Carson Wentz and then celebrated by pointing to the back of his own jersey once, and then again, with authority.nike nfl jerseys cheap china The name on that jersey doesn't get as much attention as others at the position: Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce. But Ertz is making a case for why he deserves top billing. Through six weeks, he…

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

Le’Veon Bell, James Conner duo ‘can be very effective’

NFL JERSEYS
In an inconsistent season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have consistently praised James Conner. Several teammates publicly reveled in Conner’s 185-yard performance Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons in light of headlines swirling around Le’Veon Bell’s eventual arrival. Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva referred to Conner as an “unbelievable human being” whom he’s proud to call a teammate. But the Steelers will get a top-10 NFL player in their lineup soon enough, and he happens to play running back. Bell is an elite player regardless of what Conner does. Conner's showing that he can get hot with two big performances through five weeks only deepens the intrigue around the Steelers running back position for Week 8 against Cleveland, Bell’s targeted return game. On the surface, there isn't much downside here. Bell can only help,…

David Price impresses in loss to Astros, but key pitching questions remain

MLB JERSEYS
A year ago at this time, David Price was on the disabled list, still more than a week away from making his first appearance following eight weeks of inaction because of inflammation in his left elbow. He did return, albeit in a limited role, pitching in five games down the stretch in relief without a run allowed and then throwing 6 2/3 scoreless innings out of the Red Sox bullpen in the four-game AL Division Series loss to the Astros. It had been a difficult season for the left-hander, with the first lengthy DL stint of his career and an ugly confrontation with Red Sox broadcaster Dennis Eckersley during a team flight. The first-round flameout, even to a better Houston team, put a final scar on the season.nike nfl jerseys…

Joe Maddon still wondering why Friday’s game vs. Nationals was postponed

MLB JERSEYS
While attempting to fit in their Saturday doubleheader between raindrops, the Chicago Cubs are still wondering why their game against the Washington Nationals wasn't played on Friday night. "If you want the true story, contact MLB," manager Joe Maddon said Saturday. "It was confusing to us, also. We played when we should not have and then not played when we should have." The teams waited out a 1:21 delay to begin the game on Friday only to play 1 2/3 innings before the rains came again. This time, they stuck around for almost three more hours, forcing a cancellation, but curiously only after the rain ceased at about 11:30 p.m. ET. The Cubs were ready to play then.cheap nfl jerseys china nike "We waited as long as we did, and…

Cubs rotation enters the stretch run ready to dominate

MLB JERSEYS
The same goes for Cole Hamels, who's up for Pitcher of the Month for August, while Jon Lester is also rounding back into form after a post All-Star-break dip. Think about those names if the Cubs do indeed make it to October: Lester, Hamels, Hendricks. They are talented and playoff-tested. What other NL contender, aside from the Los Angeles Dodgers, can say the same about three of its starting pitchers? "With Jon and Cole, that's where it starts," Hendricks said. "They're never bothered too much. It trickles down to the rest of us young guys." That's funny, coming from Hendricks, who beat Clayton Kershaw to send the Cubs to the 2016 World Series. He has pitched in big game after big game, but he knows his teammates are in a…
