While not quite official, the Rams have all-but clinched their first division title since 2003.

The Jaguars are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2007 and the Packers are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

Jacksonville clinched a playoff spot with a dominating 45-7 win over NFL Jerseys Free Shipping the Texans. The Jaguars (10-4) have double-digit wins for the first time since going 11-5 in 2007. The Jaguars are also still in the hunt for home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs thanks to New England’s controversial 27-24 win over the Steelers.

The Patriots (11-3) rallied to take a late lead and then got the win after a Steelers touchdown in the final minute was overturned following a replay review. The Patriots clinched the AFC East for a record ninth straight season with the win. Because the Jaguars beat the Steelers (11-3) earlier this season and own a tiebreaker over the Patriots, the Jags would be the top seed should all three finish 12-4.

Jacksonville will close the season with two road games against the 49ers (4-10) and Titans (8-6). The Niners beat the Titans on Sunday to win their third straight game with Jimmy Garoppolo at quarterback. The Steelers, who had already clinched the AFC North, finish up against the Texans and Browns. The Browns (0-14) remained winless with a 27-10 loss to the Ravens (8-6), who are still in the mix for a playoff spot.

Ladies and gentlemen: Isaiah Thomas is f’n back. Cleveland already loves this Wholesale NFL Jerseys Free Shipping dude. His son stole the postgame interview show. Thomas won’t play when the Cavaliers visit Boston Wednesday, and, in fact, has asked the Celtics to not offer up a video tribute (since he isn’t playing).

The end of Suns vs. Hawks was wild. Phoenix was down 10 with less than three minutes to go. They got a lead and Marquese Chriss had an absolutely incredible block on Taurean Prince at the rim — the ground Chriss makes up is eye-popping. Then Dennis Schroder inexplicably took a quick two down three with seconds left and no timeouts. The tank commitment is real.

This is a hypnotic Michael Beasley shot that circles the rim five times before dropping in.

The naysayers calling out the Cowboys for dragging out the Ezekiel Elliott appeals and delaying his suspension were premature.

While his 3-0 record as a starter can’t be picked at too much, Jimmy Garoppolo probably should have stashed a few touchdowns in the bank during Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale that run (the 49ers scored three, while Robbie Gould kicked 15 field goals). They’re not going to break through for too many against the Jaguars defense. Meanwhile, in Blake Bortles’ last three games — also three wins — he has 903 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

Here the Cowboys are now, on a three-game win streak and with Elliott back. Dak Prescott is no longer an anchor around the offense’s neck. Dez Bryant keeps popping up and resembling his old self. The Seahawks, meanwhile, have been a shadow of their old selves the last two weeks. If they’re going to find themselves, this is their last real chance.

The Giants didn’t play like they wanted to lie down for a better draft pick last week against the Eagles. That doesn’t mean they didn’t revert to their inept selves at the wrong time — or that they won’t go ahead and look as if they’re lying down in the desert this week. Such a coincidence that one of the final acts of an era of Giants football will play out on the field where they shocked the unbeaten Patriots in Super Bowl 42. The Cardinals are not good, but they’ll be good enough.

It’s not certain that the pick the Celtics receive in the Fultz trade will be the Lakers’ unprotected 2018 selection, because the Sixers stuck new conditions on it. If the Lakers win the No. 1 overall pick, the Sixers keep it and Boston instead gets either the Sixers or Kings pick in 2019. If the Lakers’ pick falls below No. 5, the same condition applies: the Celtics get a pick next year.

Right now, the Lakers are the second-worst team in the NBA. Under current NBA draft lottery rules — which will change going into 2018-19 — the Lakers pick has an Nike NFL Jerseys From China 80.1 percent probability of landing between No. 2 and 5.

As of now, based on current standings, there is an 80.1 percent MLB Authentic Jerseys probability that the Boston Celtics — first place in the East — will have another top-five pick in what looks to be a very nice draft. If the Lakers end up as the third-worst team, the odds of Boston getting the pick this year are virtually unchanged (in fact, a little better at 80.4 percent). Should L.A. become the fourth-worst team in the league, Boston’s odds of grabbing the pick this year would drop to 70.9 percent.

It sounds like this could be the beginning of a great relationship in Cleveland.

The euphoric belief that Aaron Rodgers would lead the Packers on a Super Bowl run upon his return evaporated in less than 48 hours with their loss and the Falcons’ Monday night win. Having him back wasn’t good enough against the Panthers, so how good will it be against a better Vikings team, bitter rivalry or not? Also, this is the team that broke his collarbone in the first place. There just are no good signs for the Packers in this one.

It’s their second meeting in three weeks; the Saints won in Atlanta last time, saved by the dramatic Deion Jones end-zone interception. The importance for both teams’ playoff chances can’t be overstated. The challenge for the Saints is stopping Julio Jones; for the Falcons, it’s slowing Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Trust the Falcons’ defense more, and trust Jones just about as much.

The Panthers may have a lot of what they call “distractions” this week, but they won’t be distracted enough to let the bad-luck (and bad-playing) Bucs come into their building with this much at stake and let them take this game. The way Cam Newton is playing lately brings to mind how hurt he had to have been all of last season, from beginning to end, because it simply looks like an aberration in hindsight.

There’s no way we can talk about the Cavaliers and not talk about how incredible he is every night. He dropped 24 points, eight assists, six rebounds, and four steals in just 34 minutes tonight. Thomas made things a little bit easier on him, giving him a break to start Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping the fourth quarter and he was loving it.

“He’s very good. Very good. Very dynamic — can shoot the NFL Jerseys Outlet pill. Can get in the lane. He can pass the ball. He’s going to create so much for our team,” James said.

“I just told I.T. ‘Be you, man. Be you. You ain’t gotta try to fit in. Just be you. If you on the floor and you’ve got a look, we want you to take those looks. Two on the ball, you find somebody. Just be you and let the game speak for yourself.’ He did better than everybody expected.”

Koetter was hired by Lovie Smith as Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator to develop Winston as the No. 1 pick in the 2015 draft.

So after spelling out the case for making a change, what compels the Bucs to believe Koetter can right their trademark pirate ship? It all starts at the game’s most important position the one that helped undo Herm Edwards in Kansas City, Mike Munchak in Tennessee, Jim Haslett in New Orleans, and both Tony Sparano and college football god Nick Saban in Miami with the most important player on the Bucs roster.

Quarterback Jameis Winston.

Koetter and his staff did such a good job that he became a strong head coaching candidate elsewhere entering the 2016 offseason. Afraid of undoing the progress made, Bucs brass fired Smith and promoted Koetter to head coach.

While there are valid knocks on Koetter overall since then, Winston’s ongoing evolution isn’t one of them.

Before a Week 5 game against New England in October, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick praised Koetter by saying the work done with Winston in his first two seasons “is, probably, arguably as good as any coach has done with any quarterback in Wholesale NFL Jerseys China the first two years of a career.”

Should the Lakers retain their pick in 2018, the Celtics would Nike NFL Jerseys Supply receive a 2019 first-round pick from the 76ers. That pick is the better of the two between Philadelphia’s own selection and Sacramento’s pick, unless either is No. 1 overall.

Back in 2014, the Grizzlies were looking to get over the hump, and Jeff Green was playing terrific ball for Brad Stevens. So Memphis pushed its chips in the middle, landing Green in a complicated three-team trade involving the Pelicans and Celtics. This first-round pick was the prized asset heading Boston’s way.

The Grizzlies also owed a first-round pick to the Cavaliers at the time thanks to an ill-timed salary dump. League rules state that teams cannot deal first-round picks in consecutive seasons, so the Grizzlies told the Celtics that they’d get this first-rounder two years after that Cavaliers pick conveyed. That Cleveland pick has since moved on to Denver and then Portland, and it’ll finally convey this year.

He caught five passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns Saturday.

DaeSean Hamilton, WR, Penn State — Hamilton is a good route runner and has very good hands as well, but he was often ignored because of the prominence of McSorley and Barkley.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville — Like McSorley, Jackson often gets overlooked as an NFL QB sometimes, but when a player can throw the ball and rush for Cheap Hockey Jerseys 158 yards on and 24 carries, he is worth taking a look at. The Cardinals did lose 31-27 to Mississippi State though and Jackson was a big reason. He went 13-of-31 passing for 171 yards with two touchdowns, but four interceptions. For Jackson, his NFL QB candidacy completely comes down to what kind of passer teams think he will be, or believe they can turn him into.

Times have changed a little bit, but that was the start of his coaching career. He was a coach, athletic director, and a teacher for 38 years. He retired in 1988 in New Baden, Texas to his property that he bought out there in 1960, where he basically did all the work on that land. He had about 100 head of cattle. That’s what he loved, he loved being out there, working on fences, and feeding the cows, and checking on the heifers, and doing all that stuff. That’s the stuff I got to do with him as well, me and brother, and the rest of my family. Lots of good times, lots of good moments. He came to watch a lot of football games. He was an incredible man, I have a ton of memories, and his legacy will live on forever in his family. Those are all the things I want to instill in my kids too.

Chris Peters: First off, the biggest surprise to me — by far — is James Wisniewski. I’m not going to argue with his inclusion, but after he was not selected to be part of Team USA’s roster for the Deutschland Cup, the only tournament the squad was to play in preparation for the Olympics, it looked like Wisniewski was on the outside looking in. He even tweeted on Oct. 18: Well … the Olympic dream won’t happen for this kid … what a whirlwind of NFL Jerseys China a career.

Wisniewski could have come back to the U.S. and retired, but the oft-injured defenseman stuck it out in Germany’s second pro division, where he has 36 points in 23 games for EC Kassel Huskies. Despite that offensive success, I thought he was already out of it, so he’s definitely a big surprise to see on the final roster.
