NFL Week 7: Eagles-Cowboys failed to deliver high-octane thrills
2013-10-22

Just as we said it would ya know, without anything that remotely resembled an offensive shootout. The Cowboys 17-3 victory actually was the perfect illustration of how far the division that not too long ago was the best in the NFL has fallen. To Dallas credit, its shorthanded defense the Cowboys played without standout DE DeMarcus Ware held the Eagles to a measly 3.7 yards per play and forced three turnovers. Oh, and that Philadelphia offense that was revolutionizing the NFL? Not so much. As bad as it was for the Eagles, they are just one game back in the standings and will have to hope Michael Vicks return is sooner than later. As for the division, the race to eight (maybe nine) victories continues.

WHICH TRADITIONAL NFL AXIOM WAS ON DISPLAY?

You win with defense. In the first hour of play Sunday, we needed an addendum: You win with defense, which sometimes is the best offense. The first three touchdowns scored in the early games came via defensive players a pair of interception returns (Buffalos Nickell Roby and Carolinas Captain Munnerlyn) and a fumble recovery and return (Atlantas Thomas DeCoud). In all, there were six defensive touchdowns Sunday notably Antonio Allens game-turning, 23-yard pick-six for the Jets, following Logan Ryans 79-yard interception return earlier for the Patriots. League-wide, there have been 30 pick-sixes the most through seven weeks since 2003 (31).

WHO SHOWED HE CAN STILL BE A SPECIAL TEAMS NIGHTMARE?

Devin Hester hadnt taken a punt or a kickoff return for a touchdown since Nov. 13, 2011 until Sundays 81-yard jaunt against the Redskins. Never mind that Washingtons special teams are a disaster. Instead, Hester again proved he is one of the greatest return guys of all time. By the numbers, he actually now is the best. Including the postseason, Hester has 20 return touchdowns one more than Hall of Famer Deion Sanders. And considering Hester is only running back plays on special teams Sanders played on special teams and defense, of course that mark might be even more impressive. Unfortunately for the Bears, Hester was one of a few highlights yesterday in a 45-41 loss to the Redskins.

WHICH RIVALRY NEVER FAILS TO DELIVER?

The Ravens and Steelers added one more chapter to a rivalry that has seen nine of the past 10 games decided by a touchdown or less. Pittsburgh won for the first time last week against the Jets and immediately built on that with Sundays win at home against the Ravens doing it the old-fashioned way. The Steelers, with rookie LeVeon Bell (93 yards) leading the way, rushed for 142 yards. On the other side of the ball, Lawrence Timmons (17 tackles) and the Steelers defense held the Ravens to 82 yards adding frustration to the considerably subpar season for Ray Rice. He had 45 yards on 15 carries, but that included a 13-yard pickup. Thirty-two yards on 14 carries wont cut it but it will delight Pittsburgh defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau.

WHO FACES YET ANOTHER LONG ROAD BACK?

Former New Jersey high school legend Brian Cushing suffered one of the more gruesome injuries on a day of gruesome injuries. Cushing suffered a broken leg and torn LCL. He missed the majority of last season with a torn ACL in the same leg, and now faces another complicated surgery and intense rehab. Cushing made a solid comeback this season, and he had 44 tackles before going down Sunday. Losing Cushing was just the latest blow for the Texans, who have seen a once-promising season completely slip off the tracks. RB Arian Foster also left Sundays game with a hamstring injury, and Houston fell to 2-5 with a fifth consecutive loss. The Texans bye week has arrived. Too bad theyll spend the time counting the ways it all went wrong.

RICHARD SHERMAN, SEAHAWKS CB

Just imagine how fun Super Bowl XLVIII Media Day would be at the Prudential Center. This is a guy who will tell you he is the best cover corner in the league, and its getting harder and harder to argue with him. He has three interceptions this season, one of which he returned for a touchdown. More important, those three picks have come as teams increasingly flow their entire passing offenses away from him. Sherman is one-fourth of a secondary that could go as a group to the Pro Bowl. CB Brandon Browner and safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor are at the top of their games mostly because theyre also feasting on Shermans success.




NFL Investigating Preseason Helmet-swinging Incident
2013-08-20

In the video,Texans defensive end Antonio Smith gets into a scuffle with Miami offensive lineman Richie Incognito, eventually ripp Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas Rusia 2018 Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online ing off his helmet and swinging it at him, narrowly missing Incognito's head in the process.
No penalty was called on the play.
Miami head coach Joe Philbin has already contacted the league about a possible fine and/or suspension.
The NFL could fine Smith as the helmet cannot be used as a weapon, by rule.
And there is history between the two: last season, Smith was fined $21,000 by the NFL - reduced to $11,000 after an appeal - for kicking Incognito while he was on the ground.

Steelers vs. Bucs Preview, Bookies not expecting many points
2010-09-24

Two unlikely unbeatens meet up in Tampa Bay on Sunday; the winner leaves with a 3-0 record. The Steelers vs. Buccaneers pointspread is currently Pittsburgh -2.5 at Sportsbook.com.

Despite their 2-0 start which includes two outright underdog victories, the Steelers have yet to score an offensive touchdown in regulation. But their opportunistic defense has already forced eight turnovers, including seven in last week’s win at Tennessee. Tampa Bay has used a similar aggressive defense to force six turnovers and hold its opponents to 21 total points in two wins over Cleveland and Carolina. Thanks to these two swarming defenses, the Steelers vs. Bucs over/under is at an extremely low 33 points.

With Ben Roethlisberger still suspended and an injury to Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch got plenty of PT last Sunday. Batch is 3-1 SU and ATS in four career starts for Pittsburgh, but he had a dismal performance last week (5-for-11 for 25 yards with two fumbles). The Steelers will once again rely on the legs of Rashard Mendenhall to move the football. Mendenhall rumbled for 120 yards Week 1 against Atlanta, but was held to 69 yards on 23 carries at Tennessee. WR Hines Ward has been hobbled by a calf injury and only had one catch against the Titans, but he is expected to play this Sunday.

Tampa Bay ranks 24th in the NFL with 280.5 YPG, and the Bucs offense will be less than 100 percent due to some key injuries. RB Cadillac Williams is nursing a hamstring injury, backup RB Kareem Huggins missed last week’s game due to a groin injury and TE Kellen Winslow has missed practice time this week because of a knee injury. All three are expected to play, but that may not be enough for QB Josh Freeman to gain yardage against a stellar Pittsburgh defense that has allowed just 266.5 YPG and 20 total points this year.

These teams have met just three times in the past 10 years (2001, 2002, 2006) but all three have been similar results with the Steelers going 3-0 SU, ATS and UNDER. However, this betting trend shows that Pittsburgh’s turnover luck is not likely to hold up, making Tampa Bay the pick for Sunday:

Play Against - Favorites (PITTSBURGH) - after a game where they forced 4 or more turnovers against opponent after a game where they committed no turnovers. (103-59 since 1983.) (63.6%, +38.1 units. Rating = 2*).

After crunching some more stats, it appears that the ‘under’ is also a good bet:

TAMPA BAY is 48-23 UNDER (+22.7 Units) after a win by 10 or more points since 1992. (Rating = 2*).

NFL: MINNESOTA at ARIZONA (8:15 PM ET, NBC)
2009-12-04

Minnesota isn’t one of the NFL unbeaten teams after 11 games, but it very well could be the league’s best team. After a dominant 3-game homestand, the 10-1 Vikings will hit the road for a trip to Arizona. They are a field goal favorite and the chances of winning hinge much on the status of Cardinals’ QB Kurt Warner, who missed last game with concussion symptoms. He was listed as probable at last check and could make Arizona a worthy home dog selection at Sportsbook.com.

The Cardinals come off a heartbreaking last-second loss to the Titans, but still remain in control of the NFC West Division at 7-4. Minnesota doesn’t figure to be a good matchup for any team right now, but in terms of trends, the Cardinals are 12-1 ATS vs. teams averaging >=7 yards per pass attempt, and 13-5 ATS against teams with a winning record under Ken Whisenhunt. However, the Vikings have taken seven of the L8 head-to-head matchups outright and are 6-2 ATS in that span. They are 4-1 SU & ATS in road games in ’09, winning by 11.6 PPG.

The switch from a late afternoon start to Sunday night shows the importance this game has as a preview to a possible playoff matchup down the road. Minnesota has utilized its final piece of the puzzle—Brett Favre—to post an impressive 10-1 record, while Arizona has overcome the moniker of a “one-hit wonder” to stay atop the NFC West and get back to the postseason.

The two teams met in the desert late last season, a game in which the Vikings dominated in a 35-14 stomping of the then-sagging Cardinals. It was a game that saw the victors score 21 points in the first quarter alone as well as then-starter Tarvaris Jackson tossing four touchdown passes. Arizona also had few answers for Adrian Peterson’s 165 rushing yards, while the Minnesota stop unit held superstar wideout Larry Fitzgerald to only five catches for 52 yards.

Like 2008, the Cardinals have dabbled with bouts of inconsistency, especially at home, but head coach Ken Whisenhunt has kept the team on track when things look like they could derail.

Quarterback Kurt Warner (concussion) sat out last week’s tough 20-17 loss at Tennessee, and Arizona is going to need Warner to stay healthy to go anywhere in January, especially since backup Matt Leinart has struggled. The problem for the Cardinals has been their play at home, where three losses were accumulated in the first half of the season.

Aside from the hiccup in Pittsburgh, the Vikings have steamrolled every foe that has come their way and Favre’s ability to enhance the passing game has made head coach Brad Childress’ team awfully tough to stop. The savvy veteran has made the likes of Sidney Rice, Bernard Berrian and Visanthe Shiancoe look like All-Pros, while rookie Percy Harvin added another killer dimension on third downs as well as the return game.
Defensively, the matchup between the Arizona air attack and Minnesota’s stellar pass defense should be a sight to behold. The Vikings can get to the passer with Jared Allen and Kevin Williams, meaning Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin must get open in a hurry. Luckily, Childress will have the services of Antoine Winfield in the secondary for the first time in five games. This is vital since the Cardinals also like to use wideout Steve Breaston.

PREDICTION: It will interesting to see if Arizona can shake off its home woes for a worthy opponent like Minnesota, which came in here last year and simply dominated from the opening kick. It’ll be closer this time, but the Vikings still boast too much talent. MINNESOTA 30, ARIZONA 24
