Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey From China For Free Shipping

PITTSBURGH — When the Pittsburgh Steelers take the field Sunday night, their teammate will be on their minds and also on their feet.

The NFL has given Pittsburgh players clearance to wear cleats in their game against the Baltimore Ravens with various messages and images in honor and support of linebacker Ryan Shazier, who remains hospitalized after he underwent spinal stabilization surgery.

Among the more than 20 players expected to wear the cleats is quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, whose black cleats have Shazier’s jersey No. 50 on them with the hashtag that has become popular to honor their teammate, #Shalieve.

On the inside heel area of the left shoe, a message is displayed, saying: “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Among the other players who are planning to wear cleats in honor of Shazier are receiver Antonio Brown, defensive ends Stephon Tuitt and Cam Heyward, linebacker T.J. Watt.

During pregame warmups, various Steelers staffers and players wore black shirts with yellow circles on the front and center of them, with Shazier’s number on them.

After the entire Steelers team emerged from the locker room before the coin toss, Heyward and linebacker Bud Dupree held up Shazier’s jersey, drawing a massive roar from the crowd. Heyward then walked over and placed the jersey on the bench.

The most apt tribute, however, might have been the one by veteran linebacker James Harrison. With temperatures dipping into the low 30s, Harrison took the field about an hour and a half before kickoff with no shirt on.

Shazier had become known for doing the same, especially on particularly cold nights.

The team has not commented on Shazier’s future availability.

Cheap Houston Texans Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

HOUSTON — The Houston Texans have put tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz and wide receiver Bruce Ellington on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

Fiedorowicz left Sunday’s loss to the Tennessee Titans with a concussion, which is his third since training camp. The tight end spent eight games on injured reserve earlier this season after suffering a concussion in the Texans’ season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In five games this season, Fiedorowicz had 14 catches for 127 yards.

The Texans signed Fiedorowicz to a three-year, $21.5 million contract in August that included $10 million guaranteed.

Ellington left Sunday’s game in Tennessee with a hamstring injury. With Will Fuller missing time with a rib injury, Ellington was the Texans’ No. 2 receiver. He had 29 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns in 2017.

The Texans also promoted tight end MyCole Pruitt and wide receiver DeAndrew White to the active roster from the practice squad.

Cheap Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey Wholesale From China

GREEN BAY, Wis. — If Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers shows anything, it’s that for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it may always be a mixed bag with quarterback Jameis Winston. He’ll give you some big-time plays, but also will make some amazingly poor decisions, such as the one Sunday that led to a lost fumble and a 26-20 overtime loss.

He spent three weeks on the sideline watching veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick lead the team to two wins by taking few risks. Yet Winston’s fumble in the second quarter Sunday showed that he has failed to absorb one of the most important lessons a quarterback can learn, something he continues to fail at in his third year in the NFL: knowing when a play is dead.

Under duress, Winston coughed up the ball as he was being taken down, resulting in a fumble recovery returned 62 yards by Dean Lowry for a touchdown. It was first-and-10. Winston should have taken the sack and lived to see another play. Instead, the Packers extended their lead to 17-7.

“I don’t even know how the ball came out,” Winston said. “I think when I ran back, I think I hit a guy’s butt or something. I don’t even know. I just know I was going out to the right, trying to actually throw it away, but I think when I ran back, I hit someone. … I had Cameron Brate on a route in front of me so I was about to throw it in front of him.”

Earlier in the game, on the opening drive, Winston hit Brate down the seam for a 28-yard touchdown, the first time the Bucs had scored a touchdown on an opening drive all year. For a unit that has struggled with slow starts, that was huge progress. He’d hit Brate again for a game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter, another plus.

“It really did [feel like it was going to be a good day]. It really was,” Brate said. “We just kind of killed ourselves, whether it was sacks — those kind of killed our momentum, a couple calls didn’t go our way, the turnover — those killed us. … Ultimately we shot ourselves in the foot.”

Winston’s fumble, plus two Tampa Bay fumbles at the goal line, were unacceptable. You can’t pin that all on Winston when he was in the middle of changing a protection and the ball is snapped, but this team has to have more composure in high-pressure situations, Winston included.

To be fair, Winston didn’t find out until Sunday that he would be taking snaps from Evan Smith, a backup guard. Backup center Joe Hawley was to step in for starting center Ali Marpet, who landed on injured reserve this week, but Hawley came down with an illness.

“I don’t think I had my hands under Evan in about a year,” Winston admitted. “We had like two miscommunications and we just found out today that this was gonna be our offensive line. We did not think we’d be in this situation today. This was a game-time decision.”

The Bucs’ offensive line had an atrocious performance without Marpet and without starting right tackle Demar Dotson. They surrendered seven sacks — nearly a team record for the Packers — and on multiple instances, defenders were coming at Winston completely unabated.

“We didn’t protect Jameis nearly as well as we protected this year. That [was] probably our worst protection game that we played all year,” said head coach Dirk Koetter, who praised Winston for competing hard throughout the game despite it.

“We’ve talked about this many times. Jameis, he is gonna make some plays — he made a couple really nice scramble plays today, and he was under pressure all day — that particular one there, in a perfect world, he would have gotten that ball out of his hands but they were on him quick. But we’ve got to remember — he’s 23 years old and experience is still the best teacher.”

Something Winston did do well, and perhaps it’s something he absorbed from watching Fitzpatrick, was taking what the defense gave him. That meant checking down when facing pressure instead of pushing the envelope, trying to get an explosive play. That also meant utilizing Peyton Barber, who stepped in for Doug Martin and rushed for 102 yards — the first time a Bucs running back has eclipsed 100 yards in a game this season.

At 4-8 now, with the Bucs’ hopes of reaching the playoffs slim-to-none, these next four games are a chance for Winston to restore waning confidence in the offense and his ability to lead it — although he has a ways to go before he can achieve that in a season marred by injury and failed expectations.

Tom Coughlin

Tom Coughlinvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Eli Manning is a lot like Blake Bortles in one critical area: They’re both turnover machines.

Both average 1.3 per game. From 2004 to ’16, Manning averaged 16.5 interceptions per season. Bortles averaged 17 per season in his first three seasons. Manning led the NFL in interceptions three times — including throwing 27 in 2013 — and Bortles led the league with 18 in 2015. The turnovers drove Tom Coughlin nuts when he was with the New York Giants, and they’re driving him crazy this year, too.

That was Coughlin’s No. 1 priority with Bortles this season: Cut down on the turnovers. He has, slightly. He has 11 in 11 games and is on pace for a career-low 16. Manning, by the way, also has 11 in 11 games.

Does that mean that the Jaguars shouldn’t take a serious look at making Manning their starting quarterback in 2018? Absolutely not. His experience, ability to carry a team for several weeks and clutch performances in the playoffs (remember the two game-winning drives in the Super Bowl) should make Coughlin, GM Dave Caldwell and coach Doug Marrone look long and hard at Manning.

That, of course, depends on the team making the decision to move on from Bortles. That’s certainly not as easy a decision as many outside the organization believe. Caldwell is a staunch Bortles supporter and Coughlin and Marrone believe that they can win with Bortles, provided he’s given a good supporting cast, which injuries have robbed him of this season. It’s not out of the question that Bortles is the starter in 2018.

But if he isn’t, the Jaguars will have multiple options. Kirk Cousins, provided Washington doesn’t franchise tag him again, is the top quarterback available. It doesn’t appear that Jimmy Garoppolo will be available (San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that it was likely the 49ers would use the franchise tag on him). Alex Smith could be if Kansas City decides to go with Patrick Mahomes after Smith’s dip in play over the past month.

A veteran quarterback makes more sense for the Jaguars right now. The defense is Super Bowl caliber, but there’s a small window to keep that defense together considering the age and contract situations of some of the key players. Drew Brees, Sam Bradford, Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater also are scheduled to be free agents.

Manning, provided he has been released or is willing to accept a trade, should be considered. Even at 37 years old his upside outweighs his turnover concerns and would give the Jaguars a chance at a deep playoff run.

Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Blaine Gabbert

Blaine Gabbert

TEMPE, Ariz. — The Cardinals plan to continue starting Blaine Gabbert for the foreseeable future, coach Bruce Arians said Monday.

Gabbert, who is coming off a 27-24 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, is 1-1 in two consecutive starts this season. Drew Stanton, who Arians said is “getting healthier and healthier,” will continue to back up Gabbert, Arians added.

“But we’re going to stick with Blaine right now,” Arians declared.

And possibly next season. Arians was asked about his comfort level in starting Gabbert next season should Carson Palmer retire.

“The way he’s playing right now, I’d be very, very comfortable,” Arians said.

Could Gabbert be Arizona’s starter next year?

“Oh, yeah, I think it’s a possibility,” Arians said.

Should the Cardinals re-sign Gabbert, who is playing on a one-year contract worth $855,000 that he signed in May, it’ll be the first time in the quarterback’s career that he’ll have played in the same offensive scheme two years in a row.

“He can blossom,” Arians said.

Arians is “really proud” of how Gabbert has handled the opportunity to be the Cardinals’ starter over the last two weeks. Gabbert has thrown for 498 yards, five touchdowns, three interceptions and has completed 61.1 percent of his passes.

“We’re very blessed to have him,” Arians said. “He’s taken the bull by the horns and showing us that, ‘I’m a player and I can play at this level and play very high.’”

While Arians doesn’t feel like Gabbert needs to prove anything else to him, Arians said Gabbert has “a ton” of upside “as he continues to grow.”

There are minor things that Arians thinks Gabbert can work on, namely protecting the ball when he scrambles. But the Cardinals’ receivers have to improve on their scrambling, as well, Arians said. They didn’t know who was going deep, who’s going back and “guys were shooting the opposite way across the field.” The Cards haven’t run a scramble drill in practice in “so long,” Arians said, which led to messy plays when Gabbert got out of the pocket.

“We have to get that cleaned up so when he gets out of there, he can still make plays down the field,” Arians said.

Cheap Miami Dolphins Jersey Wholesale From China Outlet

Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins

Some would like Jay Cutler to play less and Matt Moore to play, well, more.

Some would like Damien Williams to play less and Kenyan Drake to play more.

[CHECK THIS OUT, TOO: The Tape Don’t Lie: Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Bucs, a review]

Some are calling for less of Jermon Bushrod, Julius Thomas and Kiko Alonso, but someone has to play, and a lot of Miami Dolphins have to play better.

Another week. Another loss. Another look as who’s responsible, who’s playing and who’s not:

Cam Wake (40 snaps, 61 percent). We’re going to be the first ones to admit we’re contradicting ourselves here. Because last year, more snaps for Wake were demanded early in the season, and he responded. But after going for 40 snaps for a second consecutive week, it appears that may be a bit too many to maximize Wake’s production at the age of 35. Wake hasn’t had a sack in four consecutive weeks and he seemed a bit fatigued at the end of Sunday’s game. Charles Harris and William Hayes had only 26 snaps apiece. Against New England it might make sense to split the snaps among those three (30-32 apiece).
Julius Thomas (51 snaps, 80 percent). Thomas caught all four of his targets for 30 yards, an average of 7.5 yards per catch. He’s not really a downfield threat at this stage of his career. But coach Adam Gase must see something in the veteran. Tight end Anthony Fasano had 28 snaps, or 44 percent, and caught a touchdown that was reversed on an offensive pass interference. MarQuies Gray failed to haul in his only target. We’ll keep banging the drum for Fasano and Gray, but really, I’m typing this in my dining room so who’s going to hear it?
Matt Moore (40 snaps, 62 percent). We know that Jay Cutler played the first half, before leaving with a concussion, and that Moore played the second half. I was surprised Moore had 16 more snaps than Cutler. But that’s because Moore led the Dolphins to 11 first downs, while Cutler led them to seven. Moore also led the Dolphins to 13 points, while Cutler led them to seven. Moore also passed for 282 yards, While Cutler passed for 83. But hey, who’s counting?
Kenyan Drake (38 snaps, 59 percent). Damien Williams started, but Drake had 38 snaps to Williams’ 27 snaps, which is where we thought this would be headed. But Drake didn’t have a notable performance. He gained only four yards on seven carries, an average of 0.6, which dragged his season yards per carry average, a topic of global fascination, down to 5.5. Williams had a 69-yard carry and we’re not the types to point out he had only 9 yards on his 10 other carries. After all, they all count.
Stephone Anthony (12 snaps, 18 percent). This was Anthony’s first extensive action as a Dolphin. He looked fast. He looked physical. It looked like inserting him on a third-down package for Lawrence Timmons was a good place to start. The Dolphins need to figure out a way to get more from their linebackers in pass coverage, and so maybe Anthony can help. Who knows, maybe he gets a few runs at Rob Gronkowski next Sunday. Oddly, neither Anthony nor Chase Allen (30 snaps) recorded an official tackle. We seem to recall at least one by Allen and Anthony bore down on a receiver he would have destroyed if not for a dropped pass.

Cheap Carolina Panthers Jersey Wholesale From China For Outlet

Carolina Panthers

Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers found themselves in a strange spot on Monday in the first practice after a bye week.

But punter Michael Palardy found a potential opportunity to brush the dust off a skill not many know he possesses.

The Panthers’ two backup quarterbacks, Derek Anderson and Garrett Gilbert, were sick and contagious and had to be sent home from the team’s facilities, coach Ron Rivera said.

That left starter Cam Newton alone as the only player who could get receivers their repetitions out of the bye – or so the team thought.

Instead, Rivera called over Palardy as the team was stretching, and told him they’d probably go with him as a backup arm in a period of drills that day, during which Palardy would take nine snaps at quarterback.

Palardy all but skipped delightfully back across the field to tell his fellow specialists, who immediately began hooting with glee. Long snapper J.J. Jansen also wondered aloud what this year’s franchise tag contract looks like for a quarterback, as opposed to a punter.

“I was so pumped,” said Palardy. “I was so, so excited. … I haven’t taken live snaps since I was 15. I was relishing the moment. I was like, ‘I’m excited. I’m pumped.’

The punter attended St. Thomas Aquinas High in Florida, a noted powerhouse in high school football, where he played quarterback his freshman and sophomore years. He also kicked and punted, so if he threw a touchdown pass, he’d just stay on the field to notch the extra point.

“I was always out there for first, second, third or fourth down,” he said. “If I had to punt, I punted. If I had to kick, I kicked. And then once we scored, if I threw the touchdown or whatever it was, I’d throw the extra point. And then I’d stay out for the ensuing kickoff and kick (the ball) off.”

Palardy was ultimately beaten out at quarterback by Jake Rudock, who is on the Detroit Lions roster after playing for Iowa and Michigan, and Ryan Becker, now the assistant director of football operations at Penn.

On Monday, he was also beaten out by quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey as the go-to backup in camp.

Dorsey was the winningest quarterback in school history at the University of Miami, where he played from 1999-2002 and won a national title in 2001.

His credentials at the position do outweigh Palardy’s, but the punter still said he was “crushed” when Rivera decided to go with Dorsey instead (a reaction that caused the head coach to laugh out loud in his press conference later in the day).

“Man, I was distraught. It was like somebody ripped my heart out and stepped on it,” Palardy said.

Kicker Graham Gano reacted by ripping off his beanie and animatedly throwing it to the ground when a dejected Palardy shared the news.

Dorsey was intercepted once in practice, by safety Jairus Byrd, but Palardy joked that he would have gone 9-for-9 in the drill.

Rivera said he just wanted to preserve the health of the punter, who ranks No. 5 in the NFL in net punting, with an average of 43.3 yards per punt.

“We figured it was safer than having Palardy do it,” Rivera grinned. “We figured Kenny’s expendable, and Palardy’s a little bit more valuable. We can’t have someone running into him.”

Cheap New York Giants Jersey From China For Sale

New York Giants

New York Giants

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo held a “long, hard, honest meeting” on Wednesday with his players on their first day back to work this week. During the meeting, he put some plays on the screen from Sunday’s 31-21 loss at the San Francisco 49ers that McAdoo described as an inconsistent desire to finish.

It was a vastly different meeting than the Giants are used to when they arrive to work on Wednesday mornings. This one was more to the point and critical.

“Message to them in the meeting was we had some open conversations, some hard talks, some plain talks, some simple talk, played some film and were brutally honest with each other,” McAdoo said. “We’ll see how the players respond. They had a nice day of practice [Wednesday]. We also talked about the great opportunity in front of us.”

The Giants (1-8) have seven games remaining, beginning with a difficult matchup on Sunday with the Kansas City Chiefs. The Giants are 10.5-point underdogs at home.

They’re hoping the meeting correlates to a better product. They’ve conceded that what was put on the field over the past few weeks was embarrassing.

Still, it took until Week 11 for this kind of meeting to happen. It might have been too late, with this season long dead.

The Giants are in last place in the NFC East and have allowed 82 points in the past two games combined.

“Yeah, definitely,” cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie said about the meeting possibly occurring too late.

“I think it would’ve put guys at a different attention on alert back then, because nobody wants to be called out,” he later added. “I don’t care what you say. Nobody wants to have that play up there where you have to come back in the locker room and everybody is looking at you like you’re that guy.

“I think it could’ve helped if it were done earlier or not, but at least it got done.”

The meeting occurred after the Giants were blown out by the previously winless 49ers. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins appeared to be one of the biggest offenders with his effort on several tackles.

But Jenkins was not alone. McAdoo explained in his Monday conference call that he didn’t see a consistent desire to finish throughout the game. He provided that same explanation when asked specifically about Jenkins, who was unavailable for comment on Wednesday as the Giants began preparations for the Chiefs.

McAdoo said there is a “possibility there were to be some changes” this week as a result. He did not provide any specifics.

It was clear that the players’ efforts were a point of contention at Wednesday’s meeting.

“At some points [efforts were questioned],” linebacker Devon Kennard said. “Just guys could have given more effort.”

The players saw it on tape. They didn’t reject the notion that it was insufficient.

“The only thing I can say is disappointing is the lack of want-to after all we’ve been through,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “I’ll take a lost play flying around. But how we’re losing …”

The Giants have lost each of their past three games by double digits. They’ve allowed 14 plays of over 20 yards in the past two weeks.

The meeting was McAdoo’s last-ditch effort to get his team back on the same page after a pair of recent suspensions and blowout losses have its season seemingly off the rails.

“It was just an opportunity for everybody to see what was going on, from both sides of the ball,” Kennard said. “We got to see some of the offensive plays and hear Coach McAdoo coach some guys up on the offensive side and the defensive side, and I think it’s just a good way for everybody to be held accountable for what’s going on, on and off the field.”

Cheap Cleveland Browns Jersey From China Free Shipping

Tashaun Gipson

Tashaun Gipson

Former Cleveland Browns safety Tashaun Gipson unloaded plenty Monday on the front office that did not keep him in Cleveland.

“I don’t know where my career … what path I would be taking if I’m playing in Cleveland right now. Honestly,” Gipson, now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, said on ESPN’s Freddie and Fitz radio show. “You look at it and you say, ‘I don’t know what they were thinking.’ But it’s motivation. It’s motivation right now because they don’t have a safety on their roster that can do the things that I do.”

He said more in a story here by my ESPN colleague in Jacksonville, Mike DiRocco, including that he hopes the Jaguars “hang 40″ on the Browns when the two teams play on Sunday in Cleveland, and the Browns should be unable to score on the Jacksonville defense.

Gipson was one of four starters from the 2015 Browns who became free agents in March of 2016. The Browns chose not to re-sign Gipson, tackle Mitchell Schwartz, center Alex Mack and receiver Travis Benjamin in lieu of stockpiling compensatory draft picks to rebuild the roster in what owner Jimmy Haslam called “a multiyear rebuild.”

Mack was weary of losing and seemed determined to find a new team, but Gipson, Schwartz and Benjamin all were open to staying with the Browns had they agreed to contracts.

All four signed on the first day of free agency, showing that even bad teams have players who are highly regarded by other teams. Gipson wound up in Jacksonville with a $35.5 million deal.

“It’s a blessing to get out of a situation like that. It’s a blessing to get out of Cleveland,” Gipson said. “And that’s to not say anything about the city, man. Because when I was there, man, I love the fans. They got loyal fans there.

“But it’s a blessing to get out of that situation that the front office is doing there. You look at it and you look back and the guys who were able to walk out of that building should have never walked out of that building.”

Gipson mentioned cornerback Joe Haden as another player who should have stayed with the Browns. Haden was released before the season and signed with the Steelers. Gipson said he talked to Haden when the Jaguars played the Steelers and Haden’s comment was, “Man, I’m so happy.” He said he has heard the same from Schwartz.

“It says a lot,” Gipson said. “These are good guys. These aren’t rotten apples in organizations. Joe Haden was a good guy. Travis Benjamin, Mitchell Schwartz, these are good. If these guys are happy and these guys are thriving in their new environment, I mean it says a lot about what’s going on internally inside that building.”

Gipson is not the first player to be critical of his former team, and he has never been afraid to speak his mind as a player. He signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent and went to the Pro Bowl in 2014. He struggled with injury in 2015, then joined the Jaguars. The Browns are 1-24 the past two seasons.

“You look at it, man. It sucks,” Gipson said. “Because they got good players on the team that probably never get the due that they deserve. Isaiah Crowell. Christian Kirksey. Guys like that, who probably never get the due that they deserve.

“Because they’re playing for an 0-9 team. Probably an 0-16 team, realistically. I mean, people say their next chance to win a football game is probably against the Jaguars, which probably ain’t going to happen. They’re probably going to finish 0-16.

“So you look at things like that, man, just a blessing to be able to get out of that situation and come to a situation like this where you know what winning feels like.”

The Jaguars were 3-13 in Gipson’s first season, but have started 6-3 this season.

“You look back on it and you say there’s a reason why they won one game over the past X amount of — 30 games,” Gipson said. “And that’s the one team that hasn’t progressed and essentially regressed since 2015.”

Cheap Oakland Raidersc Jersey Wholesale From China

When the sun set on the beaches of Miami, Fla., all eyes turned to Hard Rock Stadium.

Under the bright lights, with the cameras rolling, the Oakland Raiders took the field for a primetime showdown with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football. Throughout the team’s preparation all week in Sarasota, Fla., it was apparent that the group needed a win, and they weren’t going to leave the Sunshine State without one.

By the end of the night, the Silver and Black had totaled 379 yards, rushing for 84 yards, and passed for 295. The team played well in all three phases of the game, which is a major reason the Raiders were able to walk away with a 27-24 victory.

Following the game, let’s recap the three matchups we highlighted heading into the Week 9 tilt, presented by DirecTV.

Offensive Lineman Kelechi Osemele vs. Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh

When the Raiders offense and the Dolphins defense locked horns for the first time Sunday night, two of the NFL’s most-physical behemoths went to battle. While the skirmish between Osemele and Suh was the featured matchup, the Dolphins tried to pair Suh against fellow Raiders guard Gabe Jackson. Once the clock struck 00:00, Suh had registered one tackle, one sack, and one forced fumble. The Raiders offensive line did a great job of limiting the five-time Pro Bowler, and even had a little fun at his expense.

On 3rd and 2, with running back Marshawn Lynch lined up in the backfield, and Suh facing a potential Jackson and tackle Marshall Newhouse double team, the Raiders offensive linemen did the exact opposite upon the snap. With a full head of steam, Suh burst through the line of scrimmage expecting Jackson and Newhouse to block him, but instead found himself falling flat on his face, leaving an open hole for Lynch to run through.

In my assessment, I think it’s fair to say this round goes to the Raiders O-line.

Raiders Secondary vs. Wide Receivers Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker

With cornerbacks Gareon Conley and David Amerson unable to participate, the team turned to Sean Smith, TJ Carrie, and Dexter McDonald against the Dolphins. Facing one of the most-productive receivers in the game in Landry, the group limited him to 32 yards, and allowed 76 yards to Parker. The duo of Fins wide outs have big-play capabilities, and one of Raiders Defensive Coordinator Ken Norton, Jr.’s points of emphasis is not allowing anything over the top of the defense, and Sunday night the defense prevented that from happening.

Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler had an efficient day at the office, as he completed 34 of 42 passes for 311 yards, and three touchdowns, but in regards to the performance from Landry and Parker, the Raiders secondary did its job, and kept them in check for a majority of the game.

Raiders Defensive Line vs. Running Back Kenyan Drake

In Miami’s first game without running back Jay Ajayi, the team managed to rush for 86 yards, with 69 of them coming from second-year back Kenyan Drake. This was the former University of Alabama running back’s first opportunity to take over the reins, and while he didn’t have a bad day on the ground, he fumbled, and was unable to find pay dirt.

For the most part, the Raiders defensive line kept Drake and the rest of the Fins running back corps from gaining chunk yards – minus one Drake run for 42 yards. The defensive front has only allowed one 100-yard rusher all season, and their next challenge will be the New England Patriots in Week 11.
