November 2017

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he believes all players should stand for the national anthem but stopped short of imposing a rule on standing for the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner.

Goodell, speaking to reporters on Wednesday, said it is important for the league and its players to honor and respect our flag and our country.

Bath time. My wife puts both kids in the bath, but when my son is done I leave the TV to help with my daughter. She says, I’m the Little Mermaid! (shakes fist) DISNEEEEYYYY!

Well, the Little Mermaid has beautiful hair because she washes it all the time. We should probably shampoo your hair so it’s like hers, I say, and she assents faster than she ever has to a hair-washing. Although now that I think about it, mermaid hair would have to be distinctly different from human hair to not be completely damaged by constant submersion in saltwater. The lies we tell our children.

When I finish washing her hair, she lays back in the tub to rinse, and I hold the back of her head to massage the shampoo out. Ringed by remnants of bubbles, her face has the beatific look of the precogs from Minority Report, and she makes up a song about a bear, singing it under her breath, so lightly I can’t follow whatever plot there is. It is a peaceful, unscripted moment that is filled with the kind of awe and love usually reserved for cathedrals. Best part of my day.

The Redskins did not share those concerns and were ecstatic that he fell to them. He provided them with versatility too; Allen also played end in their 3-4 base front and could line up at different spots. He also occasionally rushed from a standing position behind a nose guard, picking his spot where to rush.

Last Sunday, the Falcons turned conservative after building a 17-0 halftime lead on the Miami Dolphins, who rallied for a stunning 20-17 victory . Ryan drove the Falcons into position for a tying field goal, only to throw an interception with less than a minute to go .

Now, it’s time for that Super Bowl rematch.

While Ryan and the Falcons have done their best to get escape the shadow of a historic meltdown, there’s no getting away from it this week.

He’s as tough as I’ve been around and made some throws that were, obviously that one to Taywan was a big throw, Mularkey said. It was a real big throw. I mean he did. He played well.

Mariota was 23 for 32 for a season-high 306 yards. He completed each of his three passes on the drive that ended with Taylor’s tiebreaking score.

The Titans (3-3) stopped a two-game slide and moved into a tie for the AFC South lead with Jacksonville and Houston.

Jacoby Brissett tried to rally the Colts (2-4) to a second straight overtime. But Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard forced Brissett out of bounds shy of the first-down marker on fourth-and-inches with 2:19 left before going toward midfield to celebrate.

Coach Chuck Pagano lost his challenge of the spot and said he wouldn’t blame officials.

Disappointing to say the least, Pagano said. Got to play 60 minutes. It’s a recurring thing I know that.

As usual when playing Newton, the Eagles have to find a way to hit him and confuse him with coverages. I’d expect the Eagles to bring more pressure than usual, knowing the Panthers have an excellent offensive line and four or five rushers won’t cut it. Also, the Panthers receivers are burners, so you can ask a corner to cover them maybe longer than you want.

Matt Ryan can’t seem to shake his Super Bowl hangover.

Points are way down. Interceptions are way up.

And now, the NFL’s reigning MVP must face the team that dealt the Atlanta Falcons so much heartache.

Not that Ryan needed it, but it’s certainly a reminder of how much changed since the fateful second half in Houston.

Starting cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland (knee) and Josh Norman (rib) are both questionable as is running back Rob Kelley (ankle). Defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is already out with a Lisfranc injury and he may be lost for the season.

In addition, the Redskins will feature newly signed kicker Nick Rose, who has never competed in an NFL game. He has previously been cut by the Atlanta Falcons and 49ers. Dustin Hopkins was placed on injured reserve to make room for Rose.

Kansas State is averaging 208 yards per game on the ground and 186.2 yards per game through the air. Their receivers are dropping way too many catchable passes. A position considered a strength in the offseason sees walk-on Dalton Schoen leading in receiving yards (286) and touchdowns (three). He is second in catches (13).

Even still, Newton’s comments, and his dismissive attitude toward Rodrigue, were nothing but disrespectful to someone trying to do her job.

After the Panthers’ win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Cam Newton told reporters that his comments were meant to be sarcastic and that he was trying to pay the reporter a compliment.

It was a lesson learned for me this whole week. My sarcasm trying to give somebody kind of a compliment turned in ways I never would have even imagined.”

The injury bug could be a problem for the Redskins heading into this crucial matchup.
