The New York Jets hoped to see two things from rookie quarterback Sam Donald in his return from missing three games with a right foot injury: health and progress.Mission accomplished Maxx Crosby Jersey , with a victory thrown in.Darnold, the third overall selection in this years draft, showed poise, creativity and, yes, some guts after getting dinged early in the 27-23 win at Buffalo on Sunday. He left for a short period in the first half, then returned to show the Jets (4-9) some of what they believe he will bring to a team seeking a franchise quarterback for decades.Running back Elijah McGuire scored on a fourth-and-goal run from the 1 with 1:17 remaining to cap a drive during which Darnold completed three of five passes for 52 yards. He showed his deft touch on a 37-yard pass to Robby Anderson, who made an over-the-shoulder catch up the right sideline.It was a good play (to Anderson), coach Todd Bowles said Monday, when the players were off after snapping a five-game slide. He had his eyes downfield the whole time. You wont make a living doing that, but you got to be a football player at times, too. The play broke down and he was good at making the play when it broke down.That wasnt the only time Darnold showed some good stuff Hakeem Butler Jersey , as well as a little rust from the layoff.I saw progress before he got hurt, but obviously with a win that helps everything, Bowles said. Theres still some things hes got to work on. Also, we cant have turnovers down there at the end of the field and give up points. But he came back and made some plays that didnt faze him and that was good to see from a poise standpoint.Darnold finished 16 of 24 for 170 yards with a 7-yard touchdown to Anderson and an interception. He entered the game with 14 picks, and chilly, often windy Orchard Park, New York, is not a fun place to play in December, particularly for a California guy.No matter. Darnold did just about everything the Jets could have sought down the stretch Sunday.Its great for his first game back, Bowles said. Obviously he was confident before the fourth quarter comeback. But it just helps him, it just helps him be himself a little more, which hes comfortable with being anyway. But thats really all it does for him.Bowles might not be around for Darnolds future development; few if any current NFL coaches are on a hotter seat. New York has had plenty of QBs who were supposed to be a building block Chris Lindstrom Jersey , going back to 2000 and Chad Pennington, then Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith.Judging Darnolds success will come in upcoming years, of course. For now, the Jets will settle for moving forward a bit.We dont think it was that difficult, Bowles said of Darnold stepping back in. He had two full weeks of practice. He looked good in practice and felt good. Once you start playing, you just go with the flow of the game and the game felt good to him, it seemed. He just played football.NOTES: Bowles had no update on running back Isaiah Crowell, who left the Buffalo game in the second quarter with a shoulder injury. The coach had high praise for his special teams units, particularly kick returner Andre Roberts. He had 86- and 51-yard returns. You cant say enough about the guy. Hes ready all the time, hes durable, hes tough and he gets nicked up and he keeps going. You just dont notice him until he makes a play, but he does that every single day. DAVIE , Fla. (AP)Ryan Tannehills pass traveled 2 yards before landing in the hands of a young receiver, who dropped it.Tannehill laughed. He doesnt mind when a throw to his 2-year-old son, Steel, falls incomplete.Their easygoing post-practice game of catch contrasted with what preceded it Monday two hours of spirited work by the Miami Dolphins.With players in full pads for the first time in training camp, there was a fight or two, plenty of trash-talking and one high-stakes play at the end of a passing drill, with the losing unit required to do pushups.Its a competitive sport, Tannehill said. I like what I see from our guys as far as the fire.Increasing intensity is understandable with the clock ticking toward another season, and its a little louder now for Tannehill because he turned 30 Friday.After missing the end of the 2016 season and all 16 games last year due to knee injuries, he says hes fully recovered and healthy. Five days into camp, hes pleasantly surprised his arm isnt even sore.I feel great, Tannehill said. I was telling somebody the other day Kendall Sheffield Jersey , I feel like Im 25. Thirty just sounds old.Thirty is a little old to still be without a playoff appearance, as Tannehill is. But given the way such peers as Tom Brady and Peyton Manning aged so gracefully in recent years, Tannehill might have a decade or so left to play.He seems to keep getting better, coach Adam Gase said. I guess I look at 30 now, and for quarterbacks it doesnt seem how many guys do we have that are 39 or 40 and MVPs of the league?The best hope for the Dolphins future would be that Tannehill becomes a late-bloomer. He has been a starter since his first training camp in 2012, and his best season came two years ago, when he was leading Miami toward a wild-card berth until sidelined by his first knee injury.He hasnt played since, and these days hes not thinking about the arc of his career.Im just trying to get better, he said. I feel like I have a lot of good football left in front of me, and just want to be the best I can this year.It helps that the offensive line could be the best Tannehill has played behind, easing a perennial problem with pass protection.And while favorite receiver Jarvis Landry departed last offseason, Tannehill is delighted about several newcomers , led by veteran running back Frank Gore.It really surprises me how hard he hits the hole, Tannehill said. That has probably been the most fun thing for me just seeing him put his foot on the ground and go downhill and find a way to get through a crease where it looks like a human being cant fit.Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson give Tannehill two experienced new targets at receiver, and he has been impressed with rookie tight end Mike Gesicki, a second-round draft pick from Penn State.He has incredible range, Tannehill said. If you put a ball anywhere near him, he has the ability to either jump and get it or reach out and get it. One way or the other, hes going to get his hands on it.And then theres Steel Tannehill, whos only 3 feet tall and a little inexperienced, and Dad hasnt figured out yet whether he should be a receiver or quarterback. But hes the camp newcomer who gets Tannehill gushing the most.I dont know what position he is, Tannehill said with a grin. Right now hes the fun assistant.

TEMPE Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , Ariz. (AP) Arizona Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 season for violating the NFLs performance-enhancing drug policy.The NFL did not specify Thursday which illegal substance Peterson allegedly used.Peterson can participate in all offseason workouts and preseason games. He will be eligible to return Oct. 14, before Arizonas game against the New York Giants.Patrick recognizes how disappointing this is for everyone in the organization as well as our fans, the Cardinals said in a statement. As we all do, he understands that regardless of intent he is ultimately responsible for everything he puts in his body. Our coaching staff and our players are now aware that we will have to play the first six games without Patrick and they understand they have to rise to the challenge that it presents.Peterson apologized to fans and his teammates at his foundations charity event Thursday night, saying he knew about the suspension for months. He did not elaborate further.Peterson is still one of the NFLs best cornerbacks at 28. The fifth overall pick of the 2011 draft, he has 23 career interceptions despite teams rarely testing him.Peterson is a three-time All-Pro and he holds the franchise record with eight Pro Bowl appearances, a streak that will come to an end with his suspension. Under league rules, no player who was suspended for violation of PED policy can play in the Pro Bowl.Peterson demanded a trade last season before apologizing. He posted a few cryptic messages on social media last month while deleting all mentions of the Cardinals in his profiles.The Cardinals have been searching for a cornerback to play opposite Peterson almost since he came into the league. Arizona signed veteran Robert Alford as a free agent this offseason and used a second-round draft pick this year on Washington cornerback Byron Murphy. METAIRIE, La. (AP) Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan , who has been New Orleans sack leader in six of the past seven seasons, has agreed to a three-year extension worth up to $55.5 million, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday.The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Tuesday because the extension, which follows the two years left on his current contract and runs through 2023, is not expected to be signed until Wednesday morning and has not been announced.Jordan, who spoke after a minicamp practice on Tuesday, said an extension had not been signed, but hinted that a verbal agreement was in place and stressed that he intends to play in New Orleans as long as possible.We might dance tonight, Jordan said. My sons fourth birthday might be a little better today. My daughter turns 1 tomorrow Ugo Amadi Jersey , so someones going to have a heck of a birthday.Ive always said its not about being the highest-paid player for me; Ive got personal goals, Jordan said. As embedded as I am in this community, as much as I love this place, as much as my family is at home here, uprooting isnt really an option for me.Several defensive ends average a little more than $20 million annually in salary and bonuses, more per year than Jordans extension would pay. Currently, Jordan is in the midst of a five-year extension worth up to $60 million.Since signing that deal three seasons ago, he has been named All-Pro in 2017, when he had 13 sacks and has averaged more than 10 sacks per season Dwayne Haskins Jersey , including 12 in 2018.The 6-foot-4, 287-pound Jordan, a 2011 first-round pick wholl be 30 this season, also has become adept at deflecting passes. He has batted 23 passes the past three seasons and deflected one to himself for a touchdown in 2017.Saints coach Sean Payton said a contract extension for Jordan is much deserved.Hes someone that has been extremely productive, Payton said. Hes one of the better defensive ends, run and pass. Im glad hes on our team.Jordans father, Steve, was an NFL tight end who spent his entire career with Minnesota.My dad played for the Vikings for 13 years. I always said I want to be with the same team for the rest of my career, Jordan said. This gives me an opportunity to extend to however long we go.Jordan joined the Saints two years after their only Super Bowl title. He has been part of two teams that lost divisional-round playoff games in the final seconds in the 2011 season at San Francisco and the 2017 season at Minnesota.Last season he was a defensive leader on a Saints team that lost the NFC title game in overtime after the officials disputed decision not to call late pass interference and helmet-to-helmet contact penalties against Los Angeles Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman.In discussing his comfort in his adopted home city David Long Jersey , Jordan said he has long enjoyed riding his bicycle around town and that everybody knows me at the grocery store.My familiarity here has been welcomed, he added. At this point, I feel like I am part of the city. Still need a Super Bowl, though.Notes: Quarterback Drew Brees, who missed voluntary practices last week because of his trial in a lawsuit alleging he was defrauded by a San Diego jeweler, remained in California for trial and missed the first practice of mandatory minicamp. Payton hardly sounded concerned that Brees absence from a June practice would hurt the teams performance when games count in September. When were used to having someone like Drew, whos been here, shoot, going on Year 14 , obviously its different, when hes absent, Payton began. And yet other guys are getting the work. And his preparation theres that part of you that knows hes going to be obviously ready for training camp. A beneficiary of Brees absence has been backup Teddy Bridgewater, who has been taking first-team snaps.

Call it both ways.Thats the standard athletes and fans alike have been demanding from officials since sports began and its exactly what they got Sunday or in this case Hakeem Butler Jersey , <em>dont</em> call it both ways.While the attention of the football world is focusing on the non-pass interference/ helmet-to-helmet penalty Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman got away with on a pass intended for Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis with under two minutes left in regulation, Colin Cowherd believes the most costly missed call of the game actually benefitted New Orleans.That one actually took points off the board. That would have been a first and goal for the Rams at the one and the refs whiffed it Since when in pro football do you get bonus points for an egregious whiff? Cowherd wondered on <em>The Herd.</em>The no-call Cowherd is referencing also came late in the fourth quarter. With under seven minutes to play, Rams QB Jared Goff scrambled down to the Saints two yard line. During his run, Saints linebacker A.J. Klein clearly grabs his facemask, which should have resulted in a first and goal near the one yard line for the Rams. While nothing can be assumed, its likely the Rams could have punched the ball in to take a 24-20 lead, but instead they had to settle for a game-tying field goal.Its called the recency bias. That last blown call, thats what lost it for us!' Cowherd said to explain why fans are only focusing on the Robey-Coleman play. Fans demand perfect officiating, but Sean Payton got out-coached late and Drew Brees got out-played late.To explain the argument Cowherd is making about Payton and Brees being out-matched, lets take a look at key figures, beginning with the coaching decisions.With 1:58 remaining in regulation after the two-minute warning the Rams only had two timeouts remaining. The Saints had the ball with a first and 10 at the LA 13. Instead of running the ball to force the Rams to either burn their second timeout or accept the fact the clock would run under 1:15 , Payton elected to put the ball in Brees hands who threw an incomplete pass, stopping the clock.On second down, after only three seconds came off the clock during the previous play, Alvin Kamara was stopped on a run for no gain. The Rams burned their second timeout. Payton seemed to have reverted back to conventional play calling.Then came the infamous third down.While yes, the pass should have resulted in a first down because of a penalty, the decision to throw the ball at all is an interesting decision. Despite the fact it was unlikely a run on 3rd and 10 would result in a first down, the Saints would have forced the Rams into using their final timeout before kicking the go-ahead field goal with 1:45 left. If Payton had run the ball on first and second down, depleting LAs timeout supply before this play, the kick would have happened with just over a minute left.Sean, at that point in the game youre not facing the Rams. Youre facing the clock, Cowherd states.But alas Drew Sample Jersey , the Saints took the three point lead and gave Jared Goff 1:41 and a timeout to march down the field. Turns out, he needed 1:22 and the timeout to get into field goal range when Greg Zuerlein eventually kicked the OT-forcing 48-yard field goal. Thats 22 seconds and a stoppage more than Payton could have left him.However, Cowherd provides as further supporting evidence, that wasnt the only missed opportunity the Saints had.On each of the first two New Orleans possessions, the Saints had the ball inside the red zone including one where they took over possession on the LA 16 and came away with only two field goals. Instead of blowing the doors open with a 14-0 lead merely eight minutes into the game, the Rams only trailed by six.You had multiple opportunities in that game, but you go ahead and you blame the refs The better team won, Cowherd said.He also pointed to the overtime period itself which followed both blown calls he discussed in which the Saints squandered a golden opportunity.After receiving the ball first, New Orleans could have won the game without even giving LA a chance if they scored a touchdown (something Tom Brady was able to do later in the day for the New England Patriots which is causing a lot of discussion about a need to change the OT rules). But Brees could not orchestrate such a drive. Instead, while attempting to throw a deep pass, he was hit and the ball was intercepted. That play ultimately set up Zuerleins 57-yard game-winner.As I said Friday , the team peaking now and not in November would win this football game, Cowherd reminded.So, while this game may be remembered in 20 years as the no-call game, at least the no-calls went both ways. The passing game in football can be quite entertaining to watch. Some of the most popular plays can be when a quarterback throws the ball about 60 yards to a star receiver in stride for a long touchdown play. However, theres something about seeing a running back truck through several defenders on the way to a touchdown just ask Marshawn Lynch. Or an agile back making everyone look as if they move in slow motion.Rushing has been a traditional part of football with teams building their offense on different ways to run the ball. Passing was limited in the early days of the NFL. But through the decades, the focus on passing grew. Quarterbacks are expected to be extremely accurate and have the arm strength to get the ball down the field in the event of a last second Hail Mary is necessary.But one cannot simply pass their way to the top of the NFL with an offensive playbook containing just hooks, slants, curls and streaks. A balanced offense is needed to win championships; at least one that can rush the ball effectively to open up the passing game. Teams that want to win a Super Bowl need to have a great backfield. Having a star running back is essential. But a supporting cast is also beneficial.Some of the top teams in the NFL have multiple running backs that can carry the ball when one is injured or not finding their stride in a certain week. But not every team is lucky enough to develop a strong running game. The following is how the 32 teams in the NFL rank in terms of their running backs and how they improved (or failed to do so) in the 2017 NFL Draft.

CLEVELAND (AP) Cam Newtons unique fashion choices remain exciting.Everything else about the Carolina Panthers looks stale.Unable to come up with big plays down the stretch again Rashan Gary Jersey , the reeling Panthers suffered their fifth straight loss, a 26-20 setback to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday that puts a major dent in Carolinas playoff hopes.Afterward, Newton, stylish as usual in a hat and tailored gray, three-piece suit adorned with a yellow rose on his lapel, uncomfortably answered questions about Carolinas collapse.Its extremely frustrating to come up short each and every week with similar settings and not be able to push through, said Newton, who passed for 265 yards and a touchdown but had two bad throws late in the fourth quarter. I wish I had the words to say, but I dont. In this league, thats what it always comes down to: finding ways to keep the game close.We just havent found a way to win.The Panthers (6-7) are plummeting. They have three games left, but two are against the New Orleans Saints (11-2), who clinched the NFC South with a 28-14 win over Tampa Bay.Carolina was unable to put away the Browns (5-7-1), who scored nine points in the fourth quarter and overcame their own costly mistakes.Its back to the drawing board for the Panthers and coach Ron Rivera Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , who was already feeling the heat and is in real danger of losing his job. Rivera shook up his coaching staff last week, pulling defensive play-calling duties away from coordinator Eric Washington, firing defensive line coach Brady Hoke and assistant secondary/cornerbacks coach Jeff Imamura.Those moves came after Riveras meeting with owner David Tepper and general manager Marty Hurney, who may want to have another discussion with him.The Browns completed a 66-yard pass on their first play, and gashed Carolinas defense for plays of 51, 51, 29, 28 and 15 yards. Even Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry got loose for a long run.But the Panthers biggest problem has been their inability to win close games. Theyve dropped their part four by a combined 17 points.We felt like we were going to win today, defensive end Julius Peppers said. We felt like we were going to win last week. We feel like we are going to win every game. It is not for a lack of confidence. It is just a lack of execution.With the Panthers trailing 26-20, Newton, who has been bothered by a sore right shoulder for several weeks, dinked and dunked his way to Clevelands 3-yard line with 3:25 left.After a run by D.J. Moore was stopped for no gain, Newton underthrew Curtis Samuel in the right corner of the end zone on third down.Then Elgton Jenkins Jersey , on fourth down, Newton, facing some pressure up the middle, overthrew Jarius Wright in the back of the end zone on what would end up being Carolinas last real chance.The Panthers got the ball back with 1:04 left, but Newton missed wide receiver Devin Funchess and was intercepted by Browns safety Damarious Randall.Newton accepted responsibility for his mistakes, but said the Panthers as a whole arent doing enough to win.Carolina had earlier chances to score, but a false start led to a field goal instead of a touchdown and the Panthers had the ball for just 24 seconds in one series in the third before punting.Those opportunities slip through our grasp and find ways to come back and bite us, Newton said. Early on in the second half, we had opportunities, favorable field position, and we just have to find ways to score points, touchdowns, preferably. Now everyone goes to shuffling Jace Sternberger Jersey , running around with their heads cut off and panicking at the end of the game.We shouldve done the hard work when we had opportunities. Its just a detriment to everyone. Im going to do my part. Im starting with myself. We all put ourselves in this situation. Theres no one person to blame. We just have to keep moving forward.Newton quickly dismissed a question about whether he would rest his sore shoulder.Times are tough, but hes not quitting.Were in a position where were done with the cliché sayings, he said. It just comes down to us doing our job. Thats pretty much what it is, in all three phases of football. Even though coach can get up and motivate us, we can get up, scream and holler, it just comes down to us doing our job. After slugging their way to wins in the first five games against the Los Angels Angels, the Boston Red Sox needed some strong defense to complete the season sweep.

Jackie Bradley Jr. made a leaping catch at the wall in center to keep the Angels from scoring in the first inning and broke open the game with a two-run homer in the seventh as the Red Sox beat the Angels 4-2 on Thursday night.

It feels good when you get the results, Bradley said. Both were very pivotal for the game.

Bradleys shot to right was the 20th homer the Red Sox hit in six games against Los Angeles, sweeping the season series against the Angels for the first time since they joined the American League as an expansion club in 1961.

Boston outscored Los Angeles 49-12 while taking all six games, which according to the Red Sox is the first six-game season sweep in club history.

The Red Sox have won four straight and six of seven as they head to New York to open three-game series between the rivals on Friday night with first place in the AL East on the line.

Hector Velazquez (6-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief, allowing just one hit and striking out three. Craig Kimbrel earned his 24th save with a scoreless ninth inning.

With scheduled starter Steven Wright on the DL, the Red Sox had to shuffle their rotation. Manager Alex Cora said he was pleased to get four innings out of starter Brian Johnson and two more from Velazquez Dexter Williams Jersey , setting up the bullpen to finish off the Angels.

We got to where we wanted to get, Cora said. B.J. (Johnson) was outstanding using his fastball, mixing up his breaking ball very pleased with the way we got six innings out of those guys.

The Angels have lost six straight, although they were in contention in the last two games at Fenway Park.

Theres no doubt we hit the ball harder than looking at six hits, manager Mike Scioscia said. We probably squared up five other balls that they made nice plays on. Thats the way it goes sometimes.

Andrelton Simmons hit a solo homer and Albert Pujols had an RBI single for the Angels, who had a potential rally going in the eighth with runners on first and second with one out but were robbed of another hit when Andrew Benintendi made a leaping catch at the wall that rivaled what Bradley did in the first.

That was amazing, Bradley said. We were able to make some big plays for our pitchers and get the win.

Los Angeles was up 1-0 until Devers led off the fifth with his 13th homer, to center off of Jaime Barria (5-4).

Barria was pulled after giving up a one-out walk to J.D. Martinez with one out in the sixth and the score still tied 1-1. Jose Alvarez gave up a double to Mitch Moreland, with Martinez moving to third. Xander Bogaerts was then walked intentionally to load the bases, and Brock Holt drew a walk to drive in Martinez for Bostons first lead. Alvarez then got Devers to ground into a double play to end the inning.

Barria was charged with two runs on four hits and two walks, striking out two over 5 1/3 innings.

Jaime was good. He had to work hard to get to that point of the game, Scioscia said. There was one fastball he just left down the heart of the plate and it was down to Devers and he hit it out to center. But I thought he gave us a chance to win, theres no doubt about that.

Bradleys homer Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , his sixth, in the seventh off of Noe Ramirez pushed Bostons lead to 4-1.


The Red Sox were busy packing their bags in the locker room after the game and were headed to New York, where the three-game series was scheduled to open Friday. The Red Sox (55-27) hold a slight lead on the Yankees (52-26), who were off Thursday.

While the series is big, Bradley said the division title is not on the line yet.

I think if you win, that takes care of everything. You dont have to think about anything else, Bradley said. You get that done, I dont think youve got to worry about any other teams.


Angels: Placed rookie reliever Jake Jewell on the DL with a broken right leg that could cause him to miss the rest of the season. Hes scheduled to have surgery Friday. Jewell was carted off the field at Fenway Park on Wednesday night. The Angels recalled RHP Eduardo Paredes from Triple-A Salt Lake and added RHP Taylor Cole to the major league roster.


Angels: RHP Felix Pena (0-0, 5.40 ERA) gets his third start of the season and first on the road when the Angels open up a weekend series in Baltimore on Friday.

Red Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (9-2, 3.86) was on a six-start winning streak before taking the loss Saturday against Seattle. Rodriguez is scheduled to go up against Yankees LHP C.C. Sabathia (4-3, 3.18) in the series opener Friday night.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers ruined the Philadelphia Eagles dance party.Newton tossed a 1-yard touchdown pass to Greg Olsen with 1:22 left and the Panthers overcame a 17-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat the Eagles 21-17 on Sunday.Julius Peppers sacked Carson Wentz Jahlani Tavai Jersey , forcing a fumble on fourth down from the Panthers 14 to seal the victory.The Panthers improved to 4-2 with the biggest comeback in franchise history. The defending Super Bowl champion Eagles fell to 3-4.This place was as advertised, playing in a hostile environment but we overcame that and kept pushing through, Newton said. Good teams have to win on the road and win close games and we did that.After Carolina took the lead, the Eagles started at their 30. A 48-yard pass interference penalty on James Bradberry against Alshon Jeffery put the ball at the Carolina 22. Eric Reid appeared to intercept Wentzs overthrown pass but the play was overturned on a video review. Wentz threw incomplete to Jeffery in the end zone on third-and-2 and was stripped on the next play.Pressure is off, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. Nobody thinks we can do anything. A lot of football left.Down 17-0, the Panthers watched a couple of members of Philadelphias kickoff team do a choreographed dance while others celebrated as if the game was over during an extended break before the ball was placed on the field.Then the Panthers started their rally when Curtis Samuel ran in from the 14 on a reverse but Graham Gano missed the extra point.We collectively got together and knew that we had to up the tempo and have a sense of urgency, said Christian McCaffrey, who had 80 yards from scrimmage.Newton then quickly drove the Panthers 87 yards Will Harris Jersey , tossing an 18-yard pass to Devin Funchess. He connected with Jarius Wright on the 2-point conversion to get Carolina within a field goal with 4:08 left.The Panthers forced a three-and-out and got the ball at their 31 with 2:17 remaining.Newton threw three straight incomplete passes, but took a hit on fourth down and still completed a 35-yard catch-and-run pass to Torrey Smith to reach the Philadelphia 34. A 22-yard pass to McCaffrey gave Carolina first down at the 4. Newton ran it to the 1, setting up third down. He threw it to Olsen wide open in the back of the end zone.Newton finished 25 of 39 for 269 yards and ran for 49 yards.I took that one extremely personal, Newton said of a 23-17 loss at Washington last week. I told myself if we get in that position I have to hold up my end. I didnt want to let anybody down.Wentzs 11-yard TD pass to Jeffery gave Philadelphia a 7-0 lead in the second quarter. Ertz had catches of 15 and 22 yards on the drive and Jeffery hauled in a 20-yard pass before the score.Jeffery and his teammates had a unique celebration. He placed the ball on the ground and pretended to do a free kick.Wentz tossed a 1-yard TD to Dallas Goedert to make it 17-0 in the third quarter, finishing off a 17-play, 94-yard drive that chewed up 9:22 on the clock.DO OVERSGano made a 39-yard field goal that was nullified by a false start. He missed from 44 yards, but another false start allowed the Panthers to try again and they punted.NOT GETTING ALONGReid and Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins exchanged words and were separated before the coin toss. The two men have history going back to last year when Reid left The Players Coalition, which was co-founded by Jenkins. Reid and Jenkins are both fighting for the same cause social and racial injustice but have disagreed over how to do it. Reid recently called the coalition an NFL funded subversion group and he strongly supports his friend Austin Bryant Jersey , Colin Kaepernick.Reid also got into it with Ertz after tackling Wentz following a handoff in the first quarter. Both guys received personal foul penalties.REID KNEELSReid again took a knee during the national anthem. Hes been doing it since Kaepernick, his former teammate on the 49ers, began taking a stance in 2016.INJURIESPanthers: DE Mario Addison twice left the game with a back injury and didnt return after going out in the fourth quarter.Eagles: RB Darren Sproles (hamstring), CB Sidney Jones (hamstring), DT Haloti Ngata (calf) and S Corey Graham (hamstring) were among the key players out of the lineup.UP NEXTPanthers: Host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.Eagles: Play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Sunday. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) As promised, former Louisville quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson spent Saturday at the NFL scouting combine slinging it and not winging it.Jackson didnt show off a big arm like Wyomings Josh Allen, the other prime prospect in his throwing group Saturday.But nobody else did, either: Allen wowed the coaches with a 66-yard pinpoint pass at one point during the first of two sessions with the quarterbacks and wide receivers at Lucas Oil Stadium.Jackson Rashan Gary Jersey , though, was much more explosive than Allen was in his drops, consistently getting 7 yards deep on five-step drills whereas Allen made up for his poorer footwork with his superior arm strength.Widely considered the best running quarterback since Michael Vick but a thrower who still needs polish, Jackson shook off some apparent jitters to show off a good enough passing prowess to justify his reticence to switch to wide receiver.Jackson never caught a single pass at Louisville, where he threw for 9,043 yards and 69 touchdowns, ran for 4,132 yards and 50 TDs in 38 games. On Friday Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , he dismissed widespread speculation about him running routes with the receivers here.11<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:2018 NFL Draft Top Quarterback ProspectsKirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports | Kirby LeeNo sir. Im a quarterback, he said.The buzz began building when former Colts executive Bill Polian told ESPN he thought Jackson should switch to receiver because hes not as accurate, tall or strong as the other hopefuls in this years deep class of college quarterbacks. Polian suggested Jackson should make the switch sooner than did Terrelle Pryor, the ex-Ohio State QB who switched to wide receiver at age 26.Such a notion was met by skepticism from several teams this week, and Jackson said he wont switch positions even if asked.No sir, he said, Im a quarterback.And he said hes not interested in just running wildcat plays, where hed take the direct snap and zip around the tackle Elgton Jenkins Jersey , either.No wildcat, Jackson said. This is not the Dolphins with Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. No sir.While USCs Sam Darnold chose not to throw at the combine because hed rather show off his arm with his own receivers at USCs upcoming pro day, Jackson decided not to run the 40-yard dash.Film speaks for itself as far as showing off my speed and showing I can make people miss, Jackson said. Ive just got to show off my arm because thats where theyre doubting me.He assuaged some of those concerns Saturday.
