Jameis Winston is the same QB he’s always been, and it’s still not enough for the Bucs

This was supposed to be the year Jameis Winston took a big step forward to push the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into the playoffs for the first time since 2007. Instead, the team is 2-5 and the third-year quarterback is making many of the same mistakes that he did in his first two NFL seasons.

In a 17-3 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 8, Winston threw two interceptions and had a classic “What are you doing, Jameis?” fumble:

A week ago, he carved up the Bills secondary, completing 72.7 percent of his passes for 384 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in a losing effort. Against the Panthers, he completed 55.3 percent of his passes and his three turnovers kept the team from getting in the end zone.

The other teams in the North have their faults. The Lions (3-3) have a potent offense, but a porous defense while the Bears (3-4) are essentially the complete opposite with a play-making defense coupled with an inept offense. As long as Keenum, who should remain the starter for the remainder of the season, keeps managing the game well, Minnesota should cruise to a division title.

3. The Browns just might go winless — The Browns (0-8) played one good half of football, but don’t have enough talent to hang with most teams for 60 minutes. The phrase “Any given Sunday” exists for a reason and the Browns might get lucky and surprise someone, but it’s hard to see a win on the remaining schedule. Following their upcoming bye week, the Browns are at Detroit Cheap Jerseys Direct Coupon before taking on the Jaguars, who lead the NFL in sacks and could have a Cheap Jerseys Good field day against a Browns offensive line without injured Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas.

Redskins’ Vernon Davis going strong and long downfield at 33

Jay Gruden will have what Vernon Davis is having.

Marveling at the physical condition of the 33-year-old tight end, the Washington Redskins coach asked Davis what he had for lunch and came away saying, “We should all get on the Vernon Davis diet.” Davis is careful about what he eats, trains his body and his mind and is on pace for one of his best seasons in his 12th year in the NFL.

“I guess just opportunity-wise (I’m) just getting more opportunity,” Davis said Thursday. “That’s what it’s about at the end of the day: How much opportunity are you getting? I guess I’m just getting more opportunity to catch balls downfield.”

As it tries to make up a two-game deficit on Kansas City in the AFC West, Oakland will be short-handed. Running back Marshawn Lynch will serve a one-game suspension Sunday after being ejected from the Chiefs’ game for contacting a game official during a melee involving Carr and Kansas City cornerback Marcus Peters.

Two SDSU coaches corroborated that, saying scouts who have come through Brookings are primarily asking questions centered around Goedert’s character, work ethic, and willingness to block. After all, as a pass catcher, his film speaks for itself.

He can do it 4.21 seconds, per Moe. That would have ranked fourth among combine tight ends last year, and a shade better than New York Giants first-round pick Evan Engram, who clocked 4.23 at a weight 36 pounds lighter than Goedert.

For a tight end, these are the kind of numbers that put NFL Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys scouts on planes to places like Brookings. A steady stream of them — more than what SDSU is used to — has made its way through campus this season, including multiple scouts Cheap High Quality Jerseys from the same club. According to Sports Information Director Jason Hove, about three per week have dropped in on Jackrabbits practices, and as many as four have come to a game.

Carson Palmer connected with J.J. Nelson for what appeared to be a 29-yard touchdown to push the total over.

The Cardinals got the ball back and quickly drove into Philadelphia territory to set up one of the most excruciating gambling losses this NFL season.

But after the play was reviewed, it was determined that Nelson fumbled the ball before reaching the end zone, resulting in a touchback and Eagles football. Carson Wentz would kneel down a couple of times to seal the fate of those on the over, who lost after not one, but La Kings Cheap Jerseys two touchdowns were taken off the board in the final minutes.

The Badgers went to the run almost exclusively on three straight scoring drives after Nebraska’s Aaron Williams returned an interception to tie it 17-all early in the third quarter.

They ran on eight of 10 plays while going 93 yards for the go-ahead touchdown, which Quintez Cephus scored on a 5-yard pass. Next time they ran on all 10 plays as they went 80 yards, with Taylor bulling in from the 2. After Stanley Morgan fumbled on the Huskers’ ensuing possession, they ran 10 times for 40 yards, with Bradrick Shaw scoring from the 1.

“We pinned them inside the 10, and it was a great opportunity for us, but they very mechanically, methodically and physically did what they do,” Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. “They controlled the ball on the ground.”

“Nobody wants the weather to determine a game,” said Smith, who had five catches for 165 yards . “I know Cincinnati wanted to keep playing. We wanted to keep playing, too.”

No wonder. The Knights have dominated every game, outscoring opponents 190-63. By contrast, Cincinnati (2-4, 0-2) has dropped three straight in Luke Fickell’s first Manchester United Cheap Jerseys season as head coach.

The Knights moved into the Top 25 with a 40-13 victory over Memphis. They carried the momentum to the road by scoring touchdowns on their first three possessions.
