His level of comfort in OC Matt LaFleurs offense will be on display against the Dolphins defense. Mariota must lean on built rapport with Delanie Walker and Rishard Matthews , and trust in newly develop(ing) chemistry with second year receiving weapons Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor and Jonnu Smith.Mariota will also explore options with Dion Lewis as a receiving back, and have confidence that both Lewis and Derrick Henry can impose their will on the ground.With weapons in place and the trust of LaFleur and HC Mike Vrabel, Mariota could find the spark he had the last time he kicked off the season in Florida.What do the numbers suggest?The fourth year quarterback is currently holds a 1-2 win/loss record, with his only win coming during his rookie season. The past two years, Mariota and the Titans were unable to earn wins against the Minnesota Vikings (2016) and Oakland Raiders (2017).Both the Vikings and Raiders had much better defensive units than the 2015 Buccaneers. The Dolphins defense have players along the defensive line that can be disruptive and some underrated cornerbacks. However, the absence of Ndamukong Suh benefits the Titans offensive line.Hes been sacked five times for a loss of 44 total yards. With some uncertainty at the right tackle position, it will be interesting to see how the Titans offensive line handles the Miami pass rush - especially on the right side.For Mariota to hit .500 on season openers, he must depend on his offensive line to buy him time and keep the pressure to a minimum. As I mentioned in a previous post, establishing the run while setting the tempo is a delicate balance that the Titans must strive to achieve. The bulk hinges on the play in the trenches.Steady ProductionMariota regular season opener averages are promising. He maintains a 64.9% completion rate and has thrown for 736 yards. Hes thrown six touchdowns in week one, but four were in his debut against Tampa Bay.Photo by Cliff McBride/Getty ImagesThe Titans receivers struggled to separate against Oakland last season and Mariota failed to throw a touchdown. He did make some nice throws, but there was some obvious miscommunication with the receivers that eliminated some offensive opportunities. Mariota didnt play a snap with his receiving corps at full strength. That may create some hiccups early against Miami. Hiccups early are ok and can be weathered throughout the came. However Cheap Jonnu Smith Jersey , hiccups that translate to turnovers could be problematic and often times are the difference in wins and losses.Photo by Frederick Breedon/Getty ImagesMariota has only thrown one interception in regular season openers but also has one lost fumble, totaling two turnovers. The fumble against the Vikings resulted in a Danielle Hunter touchdown that weighed heavily in a game decided by nine points. Using his Intangibles Mariota has used his legs to gain yards and put points on the board in the season openers. Hes toted the rock nine times for 51 yards and one touchdown, averaging roughly 5.5 yards per carry.In LaFleurs offense, the overall design will feature a lot of Mariota on the move. Mariota has to run with confidence - a confidence that was shaky last season due to coming off a major injury.
The Titans do not want to compromise Mariotas health as the teams season success correlates to Mariota not missing time due to injury. Implementing a lot of RPOs, play-action, bootlegs and designed quarterback keepers will be meticulously used. Photo by Chris Trotman/Getty ImagesFor the Titans to board the plane from Miami with a win, Mariota will have to run and make plays with his legs. Its a fact. Mariota has to find his groove in the offense and avoid hesitation when his instincts are telling him to run. Hes proven in the past few season that he knows when to slide and avoid taking the big hit. Expect he will use the same level of caution when on the move.Mariota knows how valuable he is to this offense - and to the team. He wont jeopardize his health for a few extra yards.Music City Miracles: Week 5 Picks Lets do this.Titans over the BillsUh, I mean Bills over Titans. Yeah, thats it. Usually when I pick against Tennessee they win.Bengals over the DolphinsBoth of these teams played polar opposites last week, and while I expect Miami to play a lot better this week, I think Cincinnatia home field advantage gives them the edge.Ravens over the BrownsI expect Baker Mayfield to throw a couple of interceptions against a tough Ravens defense. It happens for rookies.Packers over the Lions (upset)Even with a 50% Aaron Rodgers, I dont see Green Bay losing this one to Detroit Cheap Dennis Kelly Jersey , who I had winning before today.Chiefs over the JaguarsThe #1 offense against the #1 defense. Since the Chiefs are at home I give them the edge.Broncos over the Jets (upset)ESPN currently has the Jets at -1.0, so yes this is technically an upset pick. Then again the change in altitude might play against the Broncos.Steelers over the FalconsAtlantas defense is without Grady Jarrett, Keanu Neal, Deion Jones and Ricardo Allen. NO excuse for the Steelers if they lose this one.Panthers over the GiantsNorv Turner has been surprisingly good as the Panthers offensive coordinator, and against a weak Giants defense at home I expect that to continue.Chargers over the RaidersDespite playing on the road at home, the Chargers should take this one.Eagles over the VikingsPhiladelphias offensive line has sucked this season, but I see the defense and Wentz doing just enough to get by a Vikings team whose offensive and secondary are also brutal.Cardinals over the 49ers (upset)Josh Rosen was excellent last week, so I expect his receivers to actually catch the ball this time and secure Arizonas first win of the season.Rams over the Seahawks-7.5 spread.Texans over the CowboysDallas offense showed life against the Lions last week, but lets see if thatll continue against J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney on Sunday night.Saints over the RedskinsIm looking forward to seeing the Saints offensive line facing off against the Redskins defensive line, as well as Drew Brees potentially breaking more records.

Pederson said at his press conference that the team is still gathering information Womens Chris Long Jersey , but that the information they have is positive about Peters condition. He described Peters as kind of a day-to-day situation at the moment.Peters has also been dealing with a quad injury recently and Pederson was asked if hed consider sitting Peters until hes totally healthy.I get what youre saying, Pederson said. Those are all things well consider. Weve got time. Weve got 10 days before we play again, and well see where all our guys are, all these injury guys are in a week or so. But right now, were not going to make any of those determinations after this one game. I want to get through the weekend, get to next week , and see where everybody is at coming up. But definitely, yeah, well have those conversations.Halapoulivaati Vaitai stepped in for Peters on Thursday and would likely get the nod should the Eagles decide resting Peters makes sense.Carson Wentz is getting one of his best friends back [UPDATE: SEPT. 30] The Wentz to Matthews connection is still strong, and the two connected on a 56-yard pass for a touchdown in Week 4 against the Titans. And you know that the friends celebrated with their patented strictly business handshake.
The Eagles re-signed Jordan Matthews following a string of injuries to the wide receiver group, and while most of the teams fan base is busy arguing about the decision online, theres at least one guy who has to be stoked: Carson Wentz.The two quickly became friends during Wentzs rookie season in 2016 , and the quarterback targeted Matthews 116 times although BLG will argue thats because there wasnt really anyone else to go to for 73 receptions and 804 yards that season. Whether Matthews was as productive as Wentz perceives is immaterial, the QB clearly has faith in his receiver, and their off-field rapport should still translate to the field. This will be additionally important as its the first game of the 2018 season for both players Wentz is coming back from injury, and Matthews has been popping around the league a bit.It was no surprise that Wentz was sad to see one of his best friends leave the team back in 2017, but the quarterback has to be excited to get his brother back, if even for a little while.Things should pick up right where the two left off; Matthews was a groomsmen in Wentzs wedding over the summer Womens Nick Foles Jersey , and they have stayed close despite the distance. Heres hoping we get to see them bro out in Wentzs return on Sunday, and celebrate some big plays on the way to a win.But in the meantime, lets take a look at their well-rounded friendship: Their infamous handshake celebrationTheir mission trips and AO1 supportThey support each other during injuriesAnd never forget a celebration

J.J. Watt has been playing football professionally for seven years. In those seven seasons Ryan Griffin Jersey , he has amassed 76 sacks, 47 passes defended, 15 forced fumbles, and one interception (that was returned for a touchdown). Hes won NFL Defensive Player of the Year three times. Hes been named to four Pro Bowls and four All-Pro first teams. Hes led the NFL in sacks twice. He put together the single greatest season Ive ever seen from a defensive player in 2014 when he had 20.5 sacks, 10 passes defended Authentic Julien Davenport Jersey , and scored four touchdowns (three of which came on offense). The last two seasons, however, Watt was lost to injury early. Playing in only eight games combined over last two years. I dont know how Watts career will unfold moving forward, but what hes done so far is enough to make him an all-time great and a surefire Hall of Famer. Gil Brandt agrees. He named Watt the seventh greatest defensive end in the history of football.
The only players ahead of Watt were Lee Roy Selmon, Doug Atkins Youth Bruce Ellington Jersey , Gino Marchetti, Bruce Smith, Deacon Jones, and Reggie White. You can see Brandts entire list here.I know it might be hard to look at this objectively for Texans fans, but do you believe there are six defensive ends better than J.J.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are finally playing games that actually count!

On this show Jeff Hartman and co-host Lance Williams break down all things Steelers from the game that was!Check out the rundown of the show:News and NotesInjuriesMost complete win of the seasonWhat does this tell us about the Steelers?Talking whats aheadand MUCH MORE!Jeff Hartman, editor of BTSC, and Lance Williams walk you through everything you need to know regarding the Black-and-gold.If you havent heard, we have a YouTube channel, and the main reason for this is to increase the sound quality on our shows.

Heres a cursed sentence: The AFC North looks like it might be the best top-to-bottom division in the NFL. The Ravens, who looked doomed offensively a year ago, have abruptly coalesced into a highly-efficient scoring machine, and their defense a habitually sturdy unit is sacking opposing quarterbacks with extraordinary and alarming regularity. The Bengals look like the same deep, well-balanced squad that won the division two years ago, and are perhaps only one ill-fated jailbreak blitz from being 5-1, mostly on the strength of numerous gutsy late-game comebacks. The Steelers finally appear to be the Steelers again and the Browns, despite their 2-3-1 record, certainly dont resemble the same woebegone team that lost 31 combined games in the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Its a good-looking division, one in which Id argue theres no clear favorite. And the league ought to blow it up. At the very least, either the Steelers or the Bengals should be sequestered to the realm of independency or transferred to another division, because their semi-annual slugfest is getting exhausting. The teams met this past Sunday, playing to a 28-21 Steelers victory that was punctuated by an epic game-winning drive by Ben Roethlisberger, the 40th such drive of his career (among active players, Roethlisberger currently ranks third in game-winning drives engineered, trailing only Tom Brady and Drew Brees). But that wasnt all. Indeed, there were intriguing storylines and cool happenings and stellar performances aplenty. Andy Dalton orchestrated a masterful late-game drive of his own, guiding the Bengals offense 75 yards in just over two minutes to pull ahead 21-20 with 1:18 remaining in the fourth quarter. He made throw after gorgeous throw to A.J. Green, who spent his Sunday afternoon engaged in a compelling and tightly-contested duel with career-long adversary Joe Haden. Pittsburghs offensive line held the Cincinnati pass-rush sackless Youth Sean Davis Jersey , and third-year receiver Tyler Boyd scored a pair of touchdowns, further establishing himself as one of the best secondary receivers in the NFL and etching his name on the ever-growing wall of Pitt standouts who have achieved or are actively achieving great success in the NFL. William Jackson, the cornerback the Steelers wanted in the 2016 NFL Draft, looks like a superstar in the making, while Artie Burns, the cornerback they ended up getting, bears not even a passing resemblance to a functional professional defensive back. You get my point. Sundays game was a good game. Of course, there was the requisite s%#t talking, the mild shenanigans after the whistle and duh the post-game controversy, this time the result of some needlessly violent and characteristically dopey thing Vontaze Burfict did on the field. I dont even wanna waste too much of your attention dissecting this particular play because, if youre reading this, Im assuming youve already seen it. Any one of Burficts manifold on-field transgressions can be viewed through the same lens, each frame carefully and meticulously scrutinized like Yinzer Zapruder film. It looks like Burfict probably lowered his shoulder and that he probably targeted Browns head, but I like Antonio Brown and I dont particularly like Vontaze Burfict, so its difficult to offer any sort of subjective analysis. What I do know is that, if this report indicating that Burfict pointed at JuJu Smith-Schusterwho, if you remember, did this to Burfict last season and exclaimed youre next! after hitting Browns head, is accurate, he should be fined (again) or suspended (again), even though I know that a) the league wont actually do this, and b) if the league would levy some sort of punitive charge against Burfict, it would be a fruitless endeavor. Weve read this book, and the ending never changes. None of this is to exonerate the Steelers for their role in cultivating the wanton brutality thats imbued this rivalry of late. Indeed, Steelers players are responsible for more than their fair share of on-field atrocities Cheap James Conner Jersey , and the Smith-Schuster hit against Burfict is just the most recent example: there was Ryan Shazier lowering his helmet against Giovani Bernard during the 2015 Wild Card game; there was Terrance Garvin ruthlessly detonating the defenseless Kevin Hubers brainstem during a punt return; there was Hines Ward blind-siding Keith Rivers, shattering Rivers jaw and ending his season; there was the Carson Palmer hit. It shouldnt be hard to find a Bengals blog that contains a more comprehensive list of slightly-less-notorious Steelers cheap shots.
Theres no denying that both parties are culpable, and the same can be said for their fans. During the same Wild Card game in which Bernard was injured, Bengals fans threw garbage and beer at Ben Roethlisberger as he exited the field with a shoulder injury. The very next day after the JuJu hit, vendors in the Strip District began selling this shirt, which depicts Smith-Schuster standing over a motionless and concussed Burfict, with the word Karma looming above the now-infamous still-frame. Unlike, say, the Steelers/Ravens rivalry, the Steelers/Bengals rivalry isnt one rooted in mutual reverence. Ive heard play-by-play guys and color commentators refer to the Steelers/Bengals rivalry as being a throwback or old-school or some other similarly meaningless and antiquated qualifier thats just intended to serve as blander, more digestible nomenclature and doesnt really aptly encapsulate what these games usually devolve into, which is mayhem. And if the NFLs core desire is to revert back to whatever version of itself it was in 1979, this is all fine. But if the NFL is truly interested in categorically evolving the fundamental aspects of American football and I suspect that they are, which is plainly evinced, for example, by the strides theyve made in revising the tackle rule (the benefits conferred by this particular directive are thus far nebulous at best, but Ill digress) then every Steelers/Bengals matchup represents a retrograde development in achieving this end. Vontaze Burficts shtick mightve flown 30 years ago, but theres no place for it in the modern NFL, and I say that not only as a Steelers fan, but as a fan of the sport of football. Thats a shame, too, because Vontaze Burfict is, in many ways, a perfect linebacker: he can stop the run, he can cover sideline to sideline , hes good in coverage against tight ends, hes generally a sure tackler, his football IQ is off the charts, etc. What do we do? Burfict has emerged as the foremost belligerent in this rivalry, so it feels like the obvious solution would be to, you know, remove him from the equation. However, if Ive learned anything in my 20-some-odd years of existence, its that oftentimes the most obvious solutions are not the ones that the powers that be ultimately pursue. So, as a very labyrinthine way of solving the Steelers/Bengals problem, Im proposing, formally, that the NFL split these teams up like a pair of schoolchildren who wont behave. Moreover, Im proposing a league-wide realignment, with each team being re-grouped intolarger divisions. Im therefore proposing four mega-divisions, in which each team plays its division opponent once per season but operates by way of a never-ending series of home-and-homes. AFC East: Pittsburgh, Buffalo, New England, NY Jets, Baltimore, Tennessee, Carolina, JacksonvilleAFC West: LA Chargers, Oakland, Denver Alejandro Villanueva Jersey , LA Rams, Kansas City, Houston, Indianapolis, ChicagoNFC East: Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Washington, Miami, Cleveland, NY Giants, Tampa Bay, AtlantaNFC West: Seattle, Arizona, San Francisco, Detroit, New Orleans, Minnesota, Green Bay, DallasThere you have it weve fixed the NFL. Weve destroyed numerous high-profile rivalries in the process, too. Whoops. Please implement this clearly well-thought-out action plan, Commissioner Goodell. Or else just suspend Burfict, whatever works.

While the defense certainly had some miscues during New England's 27-20 victory over Houston on Sunday Houston Texans T-Shirt , it may not be the unit looking to make the most improvement heading into Week 2.That task probably belongs to special teams, which had several mistakes that allowed the Texans to stay within striking distance for most of the game.Special teams has been one of the Patriots' most stable area the past few seasons. But against Houston the unit showed cracks in both kickoff coverage and punt return. Improvement will be key with a tough road matchup at Jacksonville up next.Last season, the Patriots allowed opponents just 18.9 yards per kickoff return, the third-best mark in the NFL.That meant nothing to Houston's Tyler Ervin, who found all kinds of seams in New England's kickoff coverage. He finished the game with 156 kickoff return yards on five returns (31.2 avg.), including a game-long 36-yard return.The 156 return yards are the most ever by a Texans player in a season opener."I thought there were a lot of areas that we did well in, a lot of areas that we need to work on and a lot of areas that we can improve Houston Texans Hats ," coach Bill Belichick said when asked about the mishaps on kickoffs.Special teams captain Matt Slater said he didn't think the new kickoff rules aimed at improving safety were to blame for their deficiencies."I think it was more about what we didn't do," he said. "Some of the things that we're coached to do we just didn't go out there and do them. ... It plays differently, obviously there's no wedges. Schemes have changed a little bit. But hopefully it's something we can fix."New England's punt team wasn't exempt from mistakes, either.With under five minutes left in the game, Riley McCarron fumbled a punt to set up Deshaun Watson's 5-yard touchdown pass to Bruce Ellington that got the Texans within seven."I made a stupid play," McCarron said. "I should have handled the ball; it is as simple as that. I did not make the decision on a fair catch, obviously Houston Texans Womens Hoodie , but I know the one I should have made now."McCarron was released by the team on Monday.It wasn't all bad for the special teams.Before he suffered a right knee injury in the third quarter, running back Jeremy Hill partially blocked a punt by Houston's Trevor Daniel.And some late execution by the Patriots' punt coverage team helped put a slight happy face on an otherwise lackluster day.The play came via punter Ryan Allen, who dropped a 54-yard punt inside the Houston 5, which was downed by Jonathan Jones on the 1 with 43 seconds remaining. It forced the Texans to speed up on offense and they moved the ball to only their 43 by game's end.Slater said both Hill's block and Allen's punt were shown a lot in Monday's film session.
Still, there was little celebrating."The hits keep coming," Slater said. "This will be a tough team this week and we gotta be on top of our game and certainly try to execute better."NOTES: The team placed running back Jeremy Hill on injured reserve. Hill's 2017 season with Cincinnati ended after seven games, when he had right ankle surgery. ... Hill entered the season third on the running back depth chart behind James White and Rex Burkhead and was expected to contribute primarily on special teams. ... The team also released wide receiver Chad Hansen. Im a [kittening] idiot Womens Customized Houston Texans Jerseys , cried Phillip Seymour Hoffman once in a red sports car at a fictional New Years Eve Party. This is how I imagined Frank Reich following Sundays loss to the Texans. Sobbing, alone, in a fictitious motor vehicle painted a garish color. LIVE at 7:30 p.m. tonight, BFD and I talk about the Colts fourth down decisions, the scheme changes the Texans made in Week Four, finally getting a classic J.J. Watt-Jadeveon Clowney game, Bill OBrien reverting back to his old ways Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , the emergence of Keke Coutee, all the points being scored, and whether Dak Prescott can throw for 200 yards against Houston this Sunday.
