The Bills had a second-and-9 at their own 35-yard line with 9:39 left in the first quarter and the score 0-0.

The best storyline in sports and entertainment right now is the love affair that Jason Mendoza, a character on the TV show The Good Place, has with the Jacksonville Jaguars and their quarterback, Blake Bortles.

Jason, played Torrey Smith Authentic Jersey by actor Manny Jacinto, is the dumbest, most endearing, and maybe only Jaguars fan in the history of television. Part of the running joke in the first two seasons is that the team is terrible. At one point Jason 锟斤拷 who is dead because the show takes place in the afterlife 锟斤拷 asks another character, Michael, if Jacksonville has won the Super Bowl since his death. Michael just laughs.

You suspect the Dolphins might want to chalk up 2017 as a lost season after Ryan Tannehill went down with a torn ACL in preseason, but their 28th-ranked defense (by DVOA) is a bigger concern. Miami likely will hit the free-agent market yet again to try to plug holes, even if it means moving on from Jarvis Landry and cutting Ndamukong Suh, who might have worn out his welcome. Questionable contracts from years past might prevent Miami from importing as much new talent as it might like.

In other injury news, cornerback Mackensie Alexander did not practice Friday because of an illness and is listed as questionable. The Vikings also ruled out defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee). Stephen is likely the only player on the roster who won’t be available for Sunday’s game.

Meanwhile, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer would not say whether Sam Bradford or Teddy Bridgewater would back up quarterback Case Keenum. Bradford took that role from Bridgewater for last week’s divisional playoff round and is expected to do the same Sunday. Earlier this week, Zimmer left open the possibility that all three quarterbacks will be active.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is all but certain to play in Week 2 against the Broncos. The NFL has admitted as much and, as it is already Thursday afternoon when this is being written, it would be surprising if a judge ruled on Elliott’s case in time to make a decision for Week 2. Elliott was suspended for six games on August 12 for a violation of the league’s domestic violence policy.

If you’re looking for an upset this weekend, look no further than the Falcons.

He knows what his team needs to win, and it’s up to him to make that call.
Earl Mitchell Womens Jersey
The Falcons are uber talented, but at times this season, haven’t played that way. The key for the Falcons on Saturday night is finishing in the red zone. The Falcons are 15th in points per game, but third in yards per play, 13th in rushing, eighth in passing, and first on third downs. They should have way, way more points. The Falcons are currently 23rd in red-zone percentage. They need to find creative ways to isolate Julio Jones and create holes in the run game when things condense in the red zone.

The Miami Dolphins have announced several changes in Adam Gase’s coaching staff, including the hiring of Dowell Loggains as offensive coordinator.

Jeremiah Washburn was hired as offensive line coach. Defensive backs coach Lou Anarumo, running backs coach Danny Barrett and defensive line coach Terrell Williams were not retained, the Dolphins said Friday.

Three assistants changed titles. Shawn Jefferson will become assistant head coach/offense, Ben Johnson will become wide receivers coach, and Clyde Christensen will become director of football and player development.

Gase will continue to call plays. He and Loggains were on the Chicago Bears’ staff together in 2015, and Loggains was the Bears’ offensive coordinator the past two years.

The Tennessee Titans’2017 season was in danger of spinning out of control.

Fortunately for them, quarterback Marcus Mariota was able to turn into the skid and get his team into the playoffs for the first time since 2008. He’ll have the chance to extend his season by at least one more week when the Titans travel west for a Wild Card Round showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs.

In high school in Wisconsin, I remember a teammate getting hurt in practice, and laying on the field in the middle of a team drill. The whole practice stopped. Everyone wanted to see how the injured guy was doing. When that happens in high school, when someone is hurt seriously, sometimes the practice just ends. But my first year at the University of Wisconsin, I remember a guy going down in practice, and he was in pain laying there on the field, and everybody stopped to look.

Until this week, when it was announced that a left foot fracture would shelve Colson until March, he had been center stage for 11-3 Notre Dame, whose offense over this decade has become one of the nation’s most dependable and entertaining productions.

The Falcons will force the Eagles to sustain long drives, so Foles must be patient and get the ball out of his hands quickly on shorter routes. Foles will be in big trouble if the Eagles can’t consistently get to manageable third downs.

On the other side, the Falcons need to go up-tempo as much as possible. The Eagles have a strong front seven and a good pressure package under Jim Schwartz, but they have remained shaky in the secondary all season. Jones and Mohamed Sanu should win their matchups, and some success with Freeman will help in delivering deep shots off play-action.

NFL spokesman: League was unaware of Jerry Richardson settlements before report

An NFL executive said Thursday the league did not know Panthers owner Jerry Richardson had paid at least four former team employees to settle claims of workplace misconduct by Richardson until Sports Illustrated reported the payments this week.

The executive, Joe Lockhart, also said those settlements will be examined as part of a broader investigation of allegations against Richardson.

Lockhart told reporters Thursday the league did not pressure Richardson into selling.
