NFL Power Rankings 2018 Week 3: Dolphins continue to climb all around web The Miami Dolphins have started an NFL regular season 2-0 for the first time since 2013 Youth Kenny Stills Jersey , a record that currently has them sitting alone in first place of the AFC East. While it is still early in the season, with 14 [url=http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/ryan-tannehill-jersey][/url] more games to be played before a division winner is crowned and the playoff berths are set, the Dolphins are starting to turn some heads.How will their fast start to the season reflect in the Week 3 2018 NFL Power Rankings? Hopefully with a rather sizable gap between themselves and the 32nd position, a place some power rankings had Miami before the start of the season.Here are the Week 3 power rankings for the Dolphins, along with the change from last week and any write up if there was one. At the end, we take a look at the highest single week and average ranking for Miami this year, as well as the lowest for both of those.SB Nation - Rebecca TobackThis week: 12Change: Up 10Meanwhile, the Buccaneers and Dolphins are both 2-0, along with the Jaguars, making for three undefeated teams in Florida. Ryan Tannehill is impressing and Ryan Fitzpatrick is blowing everyone away, looking far better than expected while filling in for the suspended Jameis Winston.Niners Nation - David FucilloThis week: 10Change: None.Bleeding Green Nation - Brandon Lee GowtonThis week: 19Change: Up 5The Dolphins are unexpectedly first in the AFC East at 2-0. Maybe Miami is decent?NFL.com - Elliot HarrisonThis week: 17Change: Up 6The Dolphins have gotten off to the most optimal start fans could envision: 1-0 in the AFC East, 2-0 in the conference and relatively healthy (though the Josh Sitton injury does hurt). Miami’s defense put it on tape, so to speak, in Sunday’s first half, shutting down the Jets at every turn. When Sam Darnold and Co. turned it on after the break, the Dolphins’ offense made the plays it had to make. Look no further than Frank Gore’s (shoestring-)catch-and-run to convert third-and-forever, essentially putting the game away in the fourth quarter. Only 25 yards rushing for him Sunday, but that was still enough to move Gore into fourth place when it comes to career rushing yards. With 14,112 ground yards to his name, Gore only trails Barry Sanders (15,269), Walter Payton (16,726) and Emmitt Smith (18 http://www.authenticsmiamidolphins.com/cheap-t.j.-mcdonald-jersey ,355). What a career.ESPN This week: 16Change: Up 8Miami is in sole possession of first place in the AFC East through at least two games for the first time since Week 2 of 2010. FPI gives the Dolphins a 66 percent chance to improve to 3-0 on Sunday and maintain control of first place. -- Joey KoontzCBS Sports - Pete PriscoThis week: 12Change: Up 5They are off to a 2-0 start and have a winnable game at home against Oakland. Adam Gase has this team playing good football.Yahoo! Sports - Frank SchwabThis week: 15Change: Up 10Do you believe? The Titans and Jets, the teams the Dolphins beat, are 2-0 in their other games. So it’s not a glaring example of the Dolphins going 2-0 against terrible teams. Ryan Tannehill looks at least decent. Our preconceived notions of the Dolphins gives them a higher bar to cross before we buy into this 2-0 start. If they can beat the Raiders at home Sunday, a Week 4 game at New England becomes very interesting.Sporting News - Vinnie IyerThis week: 20Change: NoneThe Dolphins have not done much particularly well in the first two games, but they’ve been clean, and that alone can steal a few wins. Credit coach Adam Gase for cooling his hot seat for now.USA Today - Nate DavisThis week: 18Change: Up 5No team averaging fewer passes, but resurgent Ryan Tannehill is highly efficient (72.5% completion, 104.9 rating) when he does throw.Bleacher Report - Paul KasabianThis week: 16Change: Up 10Bleacher Report - NFL StaffThis week: 21Change: Up 7Raise your hand if you thought the Miami Dolphins would be undefeated two weeks into the season and in sole possession of first place in the AFC East.Now put your hand down, you big liar.Last week, the Dolphins used big plays to down the Tennessee Titans. In Week 2, it was, well, um鈥e’re not completely sure.The Dolphins ran for more yards than Ryan Tannehill passed for at the Meadowlands. Miami was outgained by the Jets, 362-257. And yet, thanks in large part to three Jets turnovers, the Dolphins managed to eke out a win.Undefeated or no, we’re still not ready to call the Dolphins contenders. Or even call them good. And at the end of the month, Miami travels to Foxborough to face the Patriots in their first real test of 2018.But with a home date coming up with the Oakland Raiders before that, it’s entirely possible the Dolphins will roll into Gillette Stadium at 3-0 with a chance to open up a two-game lead on the Pats.Nobody saw that coming.The Washington Post - Mark MaskeThis week: 11Change: Up 5Miami Dolphins, AFC East leaders. It’s an odd phrase, isn’t it?Sports Illustrated/MMQB - MMQB StaffThis week: 15Change: Up 4Fansided - Matt VerderameThis week: 23Change: Up 2Give the Dolphins credit. The wins haven’t been impressive, but 2-0 will play, and the Raiders come to South Beach next.2018 SeasonChange in average from last week: Up 5.6Highest Weekly Ranking: Week 2/3 - Niners Nation - 10Highest Average Ranking: Week 2 - 16.1Lowest Weekly Ranking: Week 1 - ESPN - 32Lowest Average Ranking: Week 1 - 27.3Week 1 Average: 27.3Week 2 Average: 21.7Week 3 Average: 16.1 Todd Bowles has a secret — and he's not letting on at all.The only thing is Authentic Jesse Davis Jersey , everyone has a pretty good idea what it is.The New York Jets coach won't say who his starting quarterback will be this season, despite all signs appearing to point to rookie Sam Darnold."I definitely won't do it today," Bowles said Sunday of an official announcement. "Sometime next week ... maybe."Darnold has started New York's past two preseason games and appears to be the front-runner in the competition that includes incumbent Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater. The No. 3 overall draft pick has been solid this summer, impressing coaches and teammates with his decision-making and ability to quickly digest the playbook."As coaches, we'll meet on it and keep meeting on it," Bowles said. "I have my ideas in my head, which I'll keep to myself at this point."But, I have a good idea."Bowles insisted that the decision is not something he's even struggling with. No lost moments of sleep while juggling his signal callers in his mind."Not really," he said. "No."To anyone watching the Jets throughout training camp and the preseason, it would be a surprise if Darnold isn't under center when New York opens the regular season at Detroit on Sept. 10. It would seem unlikely that Darnold will get much, if any, time on the field in the preseason finale Thursday night at Philadelphia — the game when starters typically sit out.After missing the first three days of camp while getting his contract hammered out, Darnold quickly caught up to his teammates on the field. He was third in the rotation in the preseason opener against Atlanta, but opened the past two games with the starting offense.Bowles said he has not told any of the players yet who the starting quarterback will be. And that's OK, as far as Darnold is concerned."I'm not really going about my day any different than I would," Darnold said. "I'm still continuing in practice to take advantage of every opportunity I get to play football and to be able to play this position. And, continuing to do my thing and trying to be as consistent as possible and go about it that way."From a numbers standpoint, Darnold hasn't necessarily been eye-popping this preseason. He's 29 of 45 for 244 yards and two touchdowns with one interception.It's the veteran-like way he has handled situations in the games that has been promising. Darnold has displayed an ability to make plays when the pocket collapses, while also being smart with the football."I mean, I wouldn't be disappointed and I wouldn't be surprised," Darnold said of the possibility he isn't named the starter."Throughout my short career playing football, I've seen a lot of things," he added. "Teddy and Josh are great players Authentic Reshad Jones Jersey , so I wouldn't be surprised. At the same time, every quarterback wants to play, but that's not my job to put the best player out there. That's Coach's job. Whether that's Josh, whether that's Teddy, whether that's me, we're just going to go out there and do the best we can."Bridgewater has perhaps outplayed Darnold, just based on statistics, going 28 of 38 for 316 yards and two TDs and one interception. But it seems the veteran, who has proven he's healthy two years after a devastating knee injury, will be a backup — that is, if he's not traded."I'm living in the now," Bridgewater said. "I'm taking advantage of this opportunity I have right now."Meanwhile, McCown has thrown just one pass, a 4-yard completion, in one series this preseason. It was similar to last summer when the 39-year-old veteran got limited work while the Jets evaluated their young QBs. McCown still ended up being the starter when neither Christian Hackenberg nor Bryce Petty distinguished himself.This year, though, Darnold and Bridgewater have given Bowles and his coaches plenty to consider."I don't think it happens in a week," Bowles said of the decision. "It happens throughout the course of the spring and summer. I'll always get their opinion. This is not a state-of-the-union-type of thing. I think they have a feel for where I am from a coaching standpoint and you tell the players when you tell the players and kind of go from there."NOTES: Bowles said WR Jermaine Kearse (abdomen) is considered "day to day, week to week." It's uncertain if Kearse, who led the team with 65 catches last season, will be ready for the season opener. ... Second-year RB Elijah McGuire (foot) won't be ready for the start of the regular season and Bowles wouldn't rule out putting him on short-term IR.

But after final cuts, all 53 of the players on the roster count against the cap. On top of that—and this is the big one—players who are on injured reserve go against the cap.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones closed that door soon after the team released him April 13 to save $8 million against the salary cap.

Baltimore offered a multiyear deal and Cleveland a one-year deal.

This Year He May Never Do So This year I had the chance to ask Football Outsiders a few questions on behalf of Hogs Haven. Football Outsiders provides in depth stats that you can’t find anywhere else. There signature metric is DVOA which not only takes into account statistics but it measures [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/ryan-kerrigan-jersey][/url]efficiency and accounts for circumstance. They don’t just aim to through out numbers though their goal is to provide objective writing and analysis backed by their research to improve and change that way football is written about. Their work has been featured in Sports Illustrated http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/deshazor-everett-jersey-cheap , ESPN, SB Nation, CBS Sports, and Bleacher Report. Here is today’s question and answer:Hogs Haven: With Paul Richardson, Jamison Crowder, and hopefully Jordan Reed in the mix could Josh Doctson actually surprise and show that he can be a #1 receiver? Will Smith get him the chances to go get it or dump it off to the other guys?Football Outsiders: We were pessimistic about Doctson’s chances coming out of college -- our Playmaker Projections (https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stat-analysis/2016/playmaker-score-2016) ranked him just eighth among wide receivers in the 2016 draft class -- and so far he has done little to prove us wrong. There were 72 wide receivers drafted in the first round between 2000 and 2016. Doctson ranks 51st among that group with 31.6 yards per game through his first two seasons. The 21 players below him on that list don’t paint a pretty picture. Only two ever gained a thousand yards in a season, though those two -- Roddy White and Santana Moss -- became quality long-term starters. (Washington fans, of course, should be well familiar with Moss and his career.) A handful of others -- Darrius Heyward-Bey, Bryant Johnson -- never hit the thousand-yard threshold, but they did last for the better part of a decade in the NFL as role players. The others http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/shawn-lauvao-jersey-cheap , for the most part, never amounted to much and quickly faded away. You could say that Doctson’s 2016 season was mostly wiped out by an Achilles injury, and that he should have still been considered a rookie last year, and you’d have a point. But history has not often been kind to receivers who have started this slowly in their careers, and if Doctson doesn’t break out in 2018, it’s fair to question if he ever will.Thanks to Vincent Verhei who you can follow on twitter @FO_VVerhei As a fierce defender and fan of Doctson I think FO take here is a fair one. This is it for Doctson to prove he can be a #1 and live up to his 1st round selection status. Of course there is a step between being worthy of a 1st round pick and being a complete bust. While I know we are all rooting for Doctson to step up and produce big this season he may not do that but instead show the team he has just enough to be a solid #2 or other contributor on offense. While that is disappointing it’s a lot better outcome than him falling off a cliff production wise. We’ll see. . .You can pick up a copy of Football Outsiders 2018 Almanac hereCountdown to Camp: Can the Redskins’s Defense Rank Among The NFL’s Top Ten? Whether one wants to admit it or not, the Redskins have been on the brink of a breakthrough for some amount of time now. The management has identified the deficiencies of the team and addressed them over the past couple of off-seasons, primarily the defense. The Redskins have bolstered up the front seven at both the interior and inside linebacker positions, giving defensive coordinator Greg Manusky and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula new pieces to work with and develop. The front seven is filled with young and physical defenders who have developed tremendously under the tutelage of the old San Francisco 49ers coaching duo, and with second-year defensive back coach Torrian Gray proving to be the right hire, the entire defensive side of the football may be ready to take a giant leap in 2018. The Redskins pass rush http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/matthew-ioannidis-jersey-cheap , highlighted by iron man Ryan Kerrigan and Jonathan Allen’s return from an injury-shortened rookie campaign, has been considered one of the better in the NFL over the past couple of seasons. Expect Washington to continue and maybe even improve their ability to get after opposing quarterbacks barring injuries to the front seven. When it comes to liabilities, there are potential issues with the cornerbacks for Washington. The Redskins lost a good amount of experience this offseason in Bashaud Breeland and Kendall Fuller, replacing the two with Quinton Dunbar/Fabian Moreau and Orlando Scandrick, who has the most amount of accumulated experience behind Josh Norman. If things play out well with the front seven, the essential unit of the defense, expect the secondary as a whole to hold their own throughout the season. Overall, I expect the Redskins defense to be much better than their offense in 2018, finishing as a top ten unit. How do you feel about the Redskins defense headed into the 2018 season?
S Malcolm Jenkins Before stepping onto the podium for his scheduled post-practice press conference Alex Lewis Jersey , Ravens linebacker[url=http://www.baltimoreravensteamauthentic.com/joe-flacco-jersey][/url] Matt Judon pulled off his jersey and revealed a T-shirt informing those watching about a stat in regards to mass incarceration in America.After attending practice today, I asked the Ravens linebacker about the shirt he was repping at the podium and if there was anything he wanted to discuss in regards to what he was wearing.“No,” Judon responded. “We have some stuff going on within the Ravens organization and trying to help out the community. Other than that, no, not really.”A few questions later, Judon was asked about the shirt a second time.“A couple of us have this shirt on the team,” Judon said. “There’s a couple more shirts. I don’t think it’s just a team thing, it’s around the league that a couple of us have been wearing these shirts, but we don’t have an agenda or anything. We’re not trying to stick it to the man or anything. We’re just letting it be known.”The Ravens linebacker isn’t the first NFL player to wear this shirt. As Judon mentioned, a couple others have worn the shirt, including Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, who shared it on Twitter last week.It seems Judon wanted to talk about football during the press conference while still letting his views be seen through what he was wearing. It will be interesting to see if he continues to voice his thoughts via his apparel or if he takes a stand in any other way during the season.Quick Hits: Week 3 While two weeks makes for a small sample size, some quarterbacks have flourished early and others have looked flustered to start off the season. Who has surprised? Who has disappointed? Who has recovered? Surprise performersJonathan Dyer-USA TODAY SportsRyan FitzpatrickAt the start of the year, many in Tampa Bay lamented the position Jameis Winston’s suspension placed the team in. The hope was that Fitzpatrick could simply float the franchise until Winston’s return, understanding the veteran backup would likely struggle. Instead, Fitzpatrick has completed 78.7 percent of his passes, thrown eight touchdowns to just one interception and has a 151.5 passer rating, which is 56.2 points higher than the career-high rating he achieve in 2014 with the Houston Texans. With his seventh NFL team, Fitzpatrick has propelled the Buccaneers offense to new, unexpected heights against formidable foes in the New Orleans Saints and the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles. He faces a drama-filled Steelers squad on Monday Night Football, where he will look to continue his Cinderella story. Patrick MahomesChiefs fans have been waiting patiently for the Mahomes era to begin, after Kansas City drafted him out of Texas Tech with the 10th overall pick in 2017. Few could have foreseen how successful he would be this early on his career, as he has emerged as one of the way too early front runners for league MVP. Through two weeks, he has a staggering 143.3 passer rating Cheap Lamar Jackson Jersey , zero interceptions and 10 touchdowns, torching the Chargers and Steelers defenses. In Week 3, Mahomes will arrive for the home opener at Arrowhead Stadium in front of a famously loud home crowd, where he will look to shred the 49ers defense, which is ranked 23rd through their first two games. Blake BortlesAs the third pick in the 2014 draft, Jacksonville’s quarterback is no stranger to criticism. Even after taking the Jaguars to the AFC Championship game last season, few expected he would have the kind of outing he produced in the Week 2 rematch against the Patriots. Often labeled as a ‘game manager’ quarterback, Bortles posted a 111 passer rating, completed 64.4 of his passes and threw four touchdowns. His performance last Sunday was a drastic improvement from the season opener, where finished the day with a 67.2 passer rating and had a 1:1 touchdown to interception ratio in a win over the Giants. He heads to Nashville in Week 3, where he will look to build on his rapport with sophomore receiver Keelan Cole, who burst onto the scene against New England with 116 receiving yards and a score. Disappointing startsCharles LeClaire-USA TODAY SportsBen RoethlisbergerThe Steelers will enter their Monday night game as the only AFC North team without a victory, as Cleveland secured their first win since December 2016 on Thursday. This is certainly unfamiliar territory for a team that is annually an odds favorite for the Super Bowl. Back in August, the Steelers were listed at 10-1 along with the Eagles, Rams and Vikings behind the Patriots at 6-1 favorites to win Super Bowl LIII. As of September 18, Pittsburgh is +1600 according to Odds Shark, with the Jaguars, Chiefs and Packers leaping ahead. While Big Ben rebounded in a lost shoot out with Mahomes in Week 2, he threw a shocking three interceptions against the Browns and had a passer rating of just 60.5 in the season opener. He faces another high flying offense in Fitzpatrick’s Buccaneers this week. Steelers fans will hope he can produce a little of his own magic and that Antonio Brown reaches the end zone. Otherwise, a desperate team in a historically physical rivalry will await the Ravens for their prime time matchup in Week 4 at Heinz Field. Sam BradfordThe Arizona Cardinals have been comically ineffective in their first two contests, and Sam Bradford’s latest attempt to become an NFL success is off to an abysmal start. With a lengthy injury history, Bradford has never been able to validate his first overall selection in the 2010 draft. The Cardinals have picked up just 19 first downs, while opponents have 54. Arizona is converting on just 20 percent of third downs, and Bradford is averaging a mere 3.98 yards per pass attempt with no touchdowns on the year. The Cardinals were outscored by the Redskins and Rams 58-6 Eric Weddle Jersey , after being shut out in Los Angeles. With Khalil Mack and the Bears coming to University of Phoenix Stadium, there is certainly no rest for the weary in Week 3. Eli ManningAny of the good will and optimism that the Giants were able to conjure up this offseason has faded fast in 2018. Despite resigning elite receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and drafting one of the strongest athletes in the 2018 draft class in Saquon Barkley, New York has continued the mediocrity from their 3-13 record in 2017. At 37 years old and in his 15th season, Manning is certainly not the franchise’s future, regardless of performance. However, his lackluster start has made his “weapons obsolete” according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN:Manning will hope he can stop the skid against the Houston Texans, who are also looking for their first victory of the season. Having already faced the Jaguars seventh ranked defense and the fourth best defense in Dallas, the Texans 12th ranked unit is still little relief for the struggling veteran.Comeback kidsNoah K. Murray-USA TODAY SportsRyan TannehillAfter missing all of 2017 due to an ACL injury, Tannehill has Miami sitting atop of the AFC East with a 2-0 record. Dolphins fans have been searching for this version of the Texas A&M product since the team took him with the eighth pick in the 2012 draft. Through two weeks, Tannehill is posting a career-high passer rating of 104.9, and if he continues at his current pace of two touchdowns per game, he will surpass his 2014 record of 27 touchdowns by five scores. With Jarvis Landry now in Ohio, Kenny Stills has emerged as one of Tannehill’s most reliable targets, catching six of eight passes on the year and reaching the end zone twice against the Titans. With Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore building a successful ground game, Dowell Loggains’ multi-dimensional offense will look to carry their momentum to a 3-0 start when they host the winless Raiders. Andrew LuckLuck’s return to the Colts generated buzz all offseason, with some questioning if the quarterback would ever fully heal from his shoulder injury. In Week 3, he will face off against Carson Wentz, another signal caller looking to make a healthy return to the field after tearing his ACL in December. While Luck has not experienced quite the same level of prosperity as Tannehill, the Colts are 1-1 after defeating the Redskins in Week 2. In a loss to the Bengals, Luck still threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. However, he continues to be turnover prone, averaging 1.5 interception per game in 2018. While his passer rating is not eye popping, a .500 start shows some promise for an Indianapolis team that finished 4-12 last season.
League are semi-rare compared to some other sports Youth James Bradberry Jersey , but they aren’t outside the realm of possibility. At this point in the season, several teams see their [url=http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/christian-mccaffrey-jersey-authentic][/url]playoff hopes slipping away and might be more likely to look toward setting themselves up for the future. The Oakland Raiders made such a move yesterday, trading away Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys and getting a first round pick in return.The Carolina Panthers currently sit at 4-2 on the year, and are very much in playoff contention. To have success, one of the issues that needs correcting is being able to consistently generate a pass rush on defense. While the team as a whole is in the high middle of the pack in overall sacks, it has been very feast or famine for the defensive line. Also, looking forward, it is almost certain that this will be Julius Pepper’s final year in uniform.To shore up that area of the defense, and to give the Panthers a very good (sometimes elite) edge rusher, you have to look at teams who have a reason to give away such a talent. For me, there is only one real target that will move the needle and get the Panthers over the edge, and that is to acquire Calais Campbell from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Let me tell you why:The upside for JacksonvilleThe current track for the Jaguars is not a good one. They have major issues offensively, and the defense has also appeared to take a big step back from their dominant form last season. They currently sit at 3-4 and have lost their last three. The quarterback situation is a disaster, and Leonard Fournette is slated to miss even more time. Once this season is over, Calais Campbell could very much be someone granted his outright release. His contract is structured in such a way that it is fully guaranteed for the remainder of this year, but he can be released next season with a $3 million dead cap hit.Working a trade for him now gets you something for your trouble instead of just an outright cut that doesn’t benefit you in any way. I’d estimate fair value for a player his age http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-greg-olsen-jersey , and with his contract, to be a third or fourth round pick, as the receiving team will also be getting a player they could theoretically release at the end of this year. Yes, it absolutely hurts your defense, but if the Jaguars take another loss next week, this could be a shrewd move just before the October 30th trade deadline.The upside for CarolinaOn the field, the Panthers get one of the historically best defensive linemen in the NFL. His play has not been quite as amazing this year as in past years, but as recently as last season, he was one of the absolute best. He still can be the best, and coming to a winning team on a playoff track tends to motivate a guy. His addition has an immediate impact, certainly dialing up the pressure the Panthers can generate, as well as granting Julius Peppers a more situational role where he’ll thrive. On top of that, Campbell has been known to play every position on the line, which surely appeals to Ron Rivera and Eric Washington.Salary cap considered, the Panthers take on no risk outside his current year contract. Should the Panthers want to keep him after the season, he does have two more years left on the deal Trai Turner Jersey , but they will not be guaranteed thanks to the trade. He could be restructured, kept on his current deal, or just be a one year rental, as cap space allows. He is currently 32 years old, and is going to be effective for a while yet, though is no longer in his absolute prime.The priceJacksonville would certainly want a draft pick in return unless they are eyeing one of our skill position players on offense. A third round pick is probably the highest I personally would go for a guy above 30 on a high priced deal that likely needs to be restructured to get a multi-year benefit.Is it feasibly possible under the current cap situation?It will take significant maneuvering. Assuming a trade after week 8 and before the deadline, the Panthers would be on the hook for half of Campbell’s remaining guaranteed salary, which totals $7.5 million. The Panthers are currently right up against the salary cap wall according to Spotrac. This is a situation where a trade with an immediate restructure could be in play, or a significant restructure to other current player salaries. The Panthers could kick the can down the line quite a bit, and in the NFL, money maneuvering always seems to be possible with the right incentive.Would Marty Hurney do it?History suggests that Marty Hurney is not afraid to send picks to acquire needed talent. The most notable example is Greg Olsen, who was a much younger player, and was had for a third round pick. Probably the greatest trade in our franchise history. The better question is, do the Panthers see the need for a better pass rush to take us on a deep run? Ron Rivera has commented already that the pass rush is rounding into form and will probably make another late season surge. Would YOU do it? The current lead narrative among the (many) issues facing the Carolina Panthers is their inability to stretch the field vertically on offense. That is certainly a problem, but the Panthers defense is conceding too many explosive plays (completed passes over 20 yards). Through five games, they have allowed 21 passes over 20 yards. After watching these plays Authentic Kawann Short Jersey , there are three takeaways that contribute to the current problems.Pass rush The issue isn’t getting sacks. Sure, they’re great and I would prefer them over what’s currently happening. However, the overall pressures aren’t affecting the quarterback. As a result, the quarterback gets an opportunity to seek scrambling lanes. This causes many issues for the secondary as they can’t hold up for too long in coverage.The Panthers only allowed one explosive play to the Cowboys, but the cause of that play was a lack of pressure. Dak Prescott is allowed to scan, step up, scramble, and then find an open receiver in the middle of the field.They were worse against the Bengals.The defensive line partially gets pressure on Andy Dalton, but it’s not enough as he works toward the sideline before zipping a fantastic throw across his body for a touchdown.Later in the game, Carolina nearly sacks Dalton but he escapes. The secondary loses contain of Tyler Boyd and the result is another long gain.The Washington game was hardly different.This play really irked me because of the situation the Washington offense was facing. It was third and long, but Carolina calls a zone dog blitz which means Mario Addison has to drop into coverage. I don’t usually mind dropping pass rushers into coverage because it can create unpredictability, but dropping the best one on the team on third down is inexcusable. Washington’s offense picks up the blitz, Alex Smith finds a lane to step into, and finds the receiver running across the field.Defending corner routesCarolina’s defense has been susceptible to corner routes on different coverages. The blame is varied, but the secondary and linebackers have to pattern match their assignments so there aren’t open receivers finding the corner.Rookie Donte Jackson has had a decent start to his professional career, but he’s makingmistakes in zone. On this play Youth Mario Addison Jersey , the Panthers drop into a cover 4 shell. Jackson has to carry the vertical route and allow the linebacker to match the underneath receiver. In addition, the situation of this play also dictates Jackson not to allow anything over the top. Atlanta is operating in their 2 min drill before the half.The Falcons do an excellent job on this play-action concept. The heavy personnel and tight formation gets the linebackers to bite on the play-action. The Panthers drop into a cover 3. James Bradberry, correctly, carries the vertical route of the wide receiver. Linebacker Shaq Thompson not only bites on the play-action, but he’s too slow to match to the tight end. Jackson isn’t culpable for this blown assignment. Captain Munnerlyn is put in a difficult situation, but with the running back taking a delayed approach into his route, Munnerlyn should match with the corner route. The Panthers drop into a cover 3. Jackson initially matches with the receiver across from him. The receiver takes an inside stem to his route, which should have given Jackson the cue to pass off the route to the safety. As a result, Alex Smith has a sizable window to target the tight end on the corner. Special plays by the wide receiverThis may sound like a cop out, but the Panthers have actually played sound coverage at times. The issue is they’ve faced some top tier wide receivers who have made special catches. This might not happen in the coming weeks, so this area should improve.The Philadelphia Eagles are up next. The reigning Super Bowl champions are lacking in explosive plays this season, but they were one of the best at generating them last year. The Falcons couldn’t score in the red zone until playing against Carolina, the Giants couldn’t do anything, and Washington didn’t have any healthy receivers. The Panthers don’t want to be responsible for helping yet another team iron out their issues this season.

There are ten players on the full injury report list. Left guard Alex Lewis and right tackle James Hurst were not at practice [url=http://www.baltimoreravensteamauthentic.com/lamar-jackson-jersey][/url]today due to previous injuries. Rookie center Bradley Bozeman (calf) did not participate in practice Youth Maurice Canady Jersey , either. The rest of the list includes left tackle Ronnie Stanley (ankle), cornerbacks Marlon Humphrey (thigh) and Brandon Carr (NIR), linebackers C.J. Mosley (thigh), Tim Williams (ankle), and safety Tony Jefferson (hamstring). A surprise addition was running back Alex Collins who had limited participation at practice Wednesday, due to a foot ailment.One player that was unexpectedly not practicing today was safety Tony Jefferson, who appeared on the injury report with a hamstring issue. On Sunday, against the Panthers, Jefferson totaled seven tackles.Another player that was not at practice, but not surprisingly on the injury report http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-mark-andrews-jersey , was linebacker Tim Williams, who was wearing a boot in the locker room on Wednesday, according to Jeff Zerebic of The Athletic. He will most likely be held out of the game against the Steelers on Sunday.The Steelers injury report is half of what the Ravens have. Their injuries include linebacker Bud Dupree (illness), center Markice Pouncey (NIR), safety Cody Sensabaugh (toe) and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, which was a “coaches decision.” Roethlisberger reportedly has a fractured finger on his non-throwing hand. When asked if Roethlisberger was preparing for the game this week earlier today, coach Mike Tomlin said that he does not “anticipate it being an issue, because it wasn’t an issue in the second half of the game last week.” Last week against the Browns, Roethlisberger went 10-18 for 121 yards in the second half. Right tackle Marcus Gilbert returned to practice today. Gilbert suffered a knee injury last week and did not participate in the win against the Browns on Sunday. While the Ravens suffered another loss on the season, it wasn’t all bad news. Don’t get me wrong James Hurst Jersey , there certainly is bad news, but it is not all bad.OFFENSEHis fall from the first and second round of the 2018 NFL Draft graced Baltimore with their right tackle of the future in the middle of round three. Couldn’t be more excited about Zeus Jr.’s play in a Ravens jersey.Going from Ronnie Stanley as your O-line partner to Jermaine Eluemunor is a tough drop off. I assume he’s also dealing with the neck injury. Nonetheless, this team needed another lineman to step up and help produce protection for Joe Flacco.No excuses. You have the wide receivers and tight ends. You have the arm. You have enough protection. Get the ball into their hands and score. Get the ball to Mark Andrews and away from the defender. Get the ball to the open man waving and shouting along the sideline.DEFENSEJefferson’s improvement from last season to now is going well. He’s still not a star in my eyes, but he’s playing with more consistency.Remember watching the Ravens rack up 11 sacks against the Titans and Marcus Mariota? Did they spend their allotment for the season on a single game?Yes, Matt Judon played well, but he’s still not pressuring the edge and getting the sacks many expected this season. He’s now at 2.5 sacks in nine games, with one coming from Ben Roethlisberger lying down and taking the sack to keep the clock running. If not for the game scenario, Ben would’ve thrown it away.
