Keep eye out for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton running the ball against the Dolphins on Monday in Charlotte.

Matt Stafford is a professional, a quarterback with few weaknesses who will keep the Lions in just about every game. They have a deep reserve of pass rushers that comes in waves. They have six games left against teams with losing records and have the good fortune of playing the Packers twice without Rodgers.

They Lions perennially find ways to botch great situations.

Team USA? That’s what he did with the Knicks the past seven seasons.

So, Giants defensive back Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie quit then came back? Reader Scott Wolinitz: “Isn’t there an episode of ‘Seinfeld’ when George quits, only returns to work after the weekend, pretending it never happened?”

Mike Francesa’s Lost Tapes Lock of the Week was Denver, 10-point home favorite, over the 0-5 Giants, who he claimed would win the NFC East until they began 0-5, at which time he said he knew from the start they’d stink. He just missed, again; Giants won by 13.

After Gary Sanchez homered in Game 5 of the ALCS, FOX and Joe Buck went with the latest irrelevant stat graphic: The ball’s “exit velocity” was 110 mph. Reader Bill Fariello: “Buck failed to mention that Sanchez’s exit velocity from the batter’s box was 1 mph.” No matter the stakes, some refuse to learn.

CBS’ Tony Romo last Sunday noted the importance of “gap discipline,” which he explained as the importance of tackling beyond the line of scrimmage. What a development!

The Eagles have gotten better since they committed more to the running game. In their first two games, the Eagles averaged 21 rushes for 78 yards. In the past four, they’re averaging 35 rushes and 158 yards, led by LeGarrette Blount, who’s averaging more than six yards per carry since Week 3.

Including last week’s three-TD performance, Eagles QB Carson Wentz has thrown 13 TDs and just three INTs and is leading the league’s sixth-best scoring offense.

The Redskins’ schedule doesn’t get any easier after the Philly game, with games against Dallas, at Seattle, Minnesota and at New Orleans coming up. All of those are teams the Redskins will be competing with for potential playoff spots.

Tensions are rising in Cincinnati, where the Bengals are hanging on for dear life at 2-3 as they get ready to play at 4-2 Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Including playoffs, the Bengals are 8-20 against the Steelers under the Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys watch of long-time coach Marvin Lewis.

“For whatever reason, there’s an excitement that builds up [for this game],’’ Lewis Cheap NFL Jerseys USA told reporters this week. “We just have to stay within [ourselves] and play. We know it’s an important game for both teams.”

Tomlin vented to his buddy and former boss in Dungy — it’s unlikely he’ll make a habit of it.

Following one of the biggest wins of his career, a 31-16 victory over Ohio State on Sept. 9, Mayfield planted an Oklahoma flag at midfield of Ohio Stadium. Two days later, he apologized, saying he “didn’t mean for it to be disrespectful.”

What worries Tomlin is the fact that the Patriots have the NFL’s top-ranked passing offense. Facing Brady’s quick release and clutch play in big games is a major challenge. So the Steelers coach wants to create a mindset in his players that they can beat any team in the league, including the Patriots. It’s also clear the Patriots’ AFC title game win over the Steelers in January sticks in Tomlin’s craw because the Steelers were badly outplayed on the big stage.

Tomlin also knows who’s coming up on the Steelers’ schedule before the Pats game. He’s not worried about his players overlooking two heated division rivals, the Bengals and Ravens, over the next two weeks. Tomlin surely will have his players focused on the task at hand, because if they falter, the Patriots game may not affect the battle for home field.

But while Van Gundy thought he’d be an excellent pro, he draws the line at anyone who suggests they knew Tatum was going to emerge as a legitimate 3-point threat at the NBA level.

Heck, a graphic displayed during the draft broadcast pinpointed Tatum’s Cheap NFL Jerseys USA biggest weakness as 3-point shooting.

Also in that eye-for-an-eye spirit, a disturbing word was thrown out during and after the game, including by Brown: “Karma.”

Anti-Steelers fans took it to a dark place. They saw Shazier’s Best Place For Cheap Jerseys injury as “what he deserved” for violently knocking out Bernard in that infamous playoff meeting. Likewise, when Burfict was down from Smith-Schuster’s block, anti-Bengals/Burfict fans felt as though Burfict was receiving justice for taking out Brown in that same game.

Arizona commit Jahvon Quinerly hires lawyer; no contact with FBI

Five-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly said Saturday that his family has hired a lawyer, but he has not been contacted yet by federal authorities in connection with the FBI investigation into college basketball last month.

Quinerly was not explicitly named in the FBI documents, but he is committed to Arizona and was recruited by Arizona assistant Emanuel “Book” Richardson, who was one of four assistants (from various schools) arrested. The documents allege a $15,000 bribe from Richardson to Player-5, who “verbally committed to attending” Arizona “on or about August 9, 2017.” Quinerly committed to Arizona on Aug. 8.

The Wildcats (4-2, 2-1 Colonial Athletic Association) scored on their opening drive, a 20-yard pass from Jack Schetelich to Todd Summers, and led 21-0 at halftime after the defense forced three turnovers. Schetelich, 3 of 8 for 61 yards passing with an interception, scored on a 12-yard run in the third quarter.

Hunter, Malik Reaves, Trey Johnson and Rasaan Stewart picked off passes for Cheap NFL Jerseys USA Villanova.

The Black Bears (1-3, 0-3), who outgained the Wildcats 165-69 in the first half, were held to eight yards rushing overall by the conference’s leading defense. The Villanova MLB Authentic Jerseys defense held CAA rushing leader Josh Mack to 22 yards on 18 carries.

Chris Ferguson, 15 of 24 for 138 yards passing, threw three interceptions, and Max Staver, 8 of 17 for 73, threw another.

Lonzo Ball is the Lakers’ new direction, and D’Angelo Russell’s abrupt trade proves it

In Lonzo Ball, the Los Angeles Lakers have an anti-D’Angelo Russell. No wonder they traded away their former star point guard just a month ago for little in return, clearing a path for Ball as the team’s new starter.

It signals not only a player swap, but a culture change they believed they needed to make.

Mikhail Prokhorov in Brooklyn, Tom Gores in Detroit, and Josh Harris in Philadelphia also pulled discount purchases. All these sales — some under financial duress, some following the death of family patriarchs — happened in the run-up to and immediate aftermath of the 2011 NBA lockout.

The Kings sale in early 2013 was a capstone of sorts — a veritable report card on how the exclusive club of people wealthy enough to buy major sports franchises felt the league did in collective bargaining. That record price for a mediocre team in a mid-sized market without an arena plan revealed what Cheap NFL Jerseys Usa we now know to be true: The NBA is ascendant.

The next sale — the Bucks, another mediocre team in a mid-sized market without an Cheap NFL Jerseys arena plan — set a new record. Then came Steve Ballmer’s $2 billion for the Clippers, followed by just under $900 million for the freaking Atlanta Hawks.

There’s an old addage that goes: “It’s better to have one in hand than two in the bush,” and that’s the game the Pelicans were forced to play here.

Sure, there were some other options out there that may have been better. Both Kyle Lowry and George Hill are upgrades at this point, but it’d take cap gymnastics to even have a shot at signing one of them outright. And the Pelicans just aren’t that attractive of a suitor for either of them at this point.

Moving on Holiday as quickly as possible was the best decision they could have made. Now they’ll get a chance to see him work a full season alongside Davis and Cousins.
