From China Nick Allegretti Jersey
#1
KANSAS CITY Nick Allegretti Jersey nfl draft , Mo. 鈥?The last thing the NFL would ever want is for an officiating mistake to decide the Super Bowl.On Sunday, the league might have made enough errors to determine both teams that will play in the championship game in two weeks.The most egregious gaffe came in the NFC title game in New Orleans. The Saints were in position to put away the Rams when Tommylee Lewis blatantly was interfered with inside the Los Angeles 5-yard line by cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman. Not only did Robey-Coleman hit Lewis early, he did so helmet to helmet. Next weekend, we’ll hear about Robey-Coleman being fined for the collision 鈥?even though, incredibly, no flag was thrown.“Came to the sideline, looked at the football gods and was like, ‘Thank you,'” Robey-Coleman said. “I got away with one tonight.”Such a big one that it kept the Rams alive. Instead of a first down and the chance to run down the clock before making a field goal, or score a touchdown for a bigger lead, the Saints wound up with Wil Lutz‘s 31-yard kick. That made it 23-20 with 1:41 left in regulation, plenty of time for the Rams to march to Greg Zuerlein‘s tying 48-yard field goal.“Greg The Leg” won it with a 57-yarder in OT. His heroics almost certainly never would have happened had the call on Robey-Coleman been made. And the fact the defender led with his head into Lewis’ helmet at a time when the NFL is adamant that it’s doing everything to get such hits out of the sport should be even more maddening.“They felt like the players 鈥?the player 鈥?arrived at the same time that the ball did,” Saints coach Sean Payton said, trying to be diplomatic when he had every right to rant and rave. “They didn’t feel like it was an interference call.“Look, it’s a tough way to lose a game, especially when you’re in a position like that to win it. It’s all the more reason why we need more replay. We lose a chance to go to the Super Bowl with a call like that, it’s just disappointing. But, credit the Rams. They did a good job From China Nick Allegretti Jersey , made the plays in the end when they needed to.”Plays that wouldn’t have existed if Bill Vinovich’s crew got it right.An argument often is made, and rightly so, that plays seen in slow motion become clearly illegal, but at full speed in an increasingly fast and physical game, they look OK. That contention has no place here; even at warp speed, Robey-Coleman’s hit was obviously a penalty.NFL senior vice president of officiating Al Riveron “couldn’t believe” no penalty call was called on the play, Payton said.“It’s tough to get over it,” Payton said. “My problem with it is, I just don’t know, if we were playing pickup football in the backyard … it was as obvious a call 鈥?and how two guys can look at that and arrive at their decision? It happened, though.”A few things happened in Kansas City, too, where the Patriots won 37-31, also in overtime. These had more to do with replay, with two critical calls going New England’s way in the fourth quarter.The first, which required a lengthy video review, involved Julian Edelman muffing a punt. The original call was that the bouncing ball touched him. Replays, even in stop motion Long Sleeve Nick Allegretti Jersey , seemed inconclusive, which means the call should stand.But Riveron and his staff in New York saw enough evidence that Edelman never made contact with the football. Even Kansas City’s laid-back coach, Andy Reid, became highly demonstrative with the overturned decision. Who could blame him considering how many dozens of such calls stick with what on-field officials determined?The Chiefs, perhaps in a dose of poetic justice, soon after intercepted a pass that went off Edelman’s hands.But later in the quarter, Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones was called for a highly questionable roughing-the-passer penalty. Then Patriots wideout Chris Hogan attempted a one-handed catch on third down. Reid challenged, and replay indicated far more evidence the ground helped Hogan make the catch than the previous review showed Edelman whiffed on the ball.No matter. The catch was upheld, and six plays later, Sony Michel scored a touchdown.Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford also went offside on the Patriots’ final drive in regulation, negating an interception by Charvarius Ward that could have clinched a win. But there was little controversy there.The league has been under heavy scrutiny and drawn massive criticism about its officiating in the last few years. The perception is that the NFL needs full-time officials, which might help somewhat, and in part is being done.However, the deeper issues are too many rules and tangents to those rules; points of emphasis that get hammered in, then seemingly are discarded; and officials who struggle to keep up with the speed of the sport. The league prizes experience, but when one of its most experienced crews blows a call so blatant that even the perpetrator acknowledges he caught a break, the storm of protest will rage.Rightly so.100View Gallery Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Cincinnati Bengals, 45-10 Nick Allegretti Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , on Sunday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium.Usually, in this article, I will list the winners and losers from the game—but not tonight. I could nitpick, but the Chiefs had this game won midway through the third quarter.Winners only.WinnersPhoto by Adam Glanzman/Getty ImagesChiefs head coach Andy Reid won his 200th NFL game on Sunday night—and that’s made up of 189 regular-season wins and 11 postseason wins. While Reid has had his postseason struggles, his regular-season success is undeniable, and he’s now within one win of eighth all time. He is five wins (205) from former Chiefs head coach Marty Schottenheimer and nine wins (209) from Chuck Noll. Once Reid overtakes Noll, be it this year or next, he will sit alone in sixth. “That’s an individual thing, I’m not really good with that,” Reid said. “We are about team. I know a lot of people involved with each one of those wins that have been crucial, so, I enjoy it and I appreciate it, but I would tell you it’s everyone. Everyone is involved. I’ve been blessed to be around some good people, players and coaches. Ownership has been phenomenal. I’ve been really blessed to be in a great position and be a part of it.”Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY SportsChiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes continues to play at an MVP-caliber level, and he should once again be the frontrunner after this week’s performance. Mahomes finished 28 of 39 for 358 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. He continued to show development in being comfortable in the pocket, as well as his ability to make plays with his legs. Mahomes also had 45 rushing yards on four rushes in the win. The Chiefs never punted—a feat that has occurred only two other times in franchise history, against the Carolina Panthers in December 2000 and away against the Los Angeles Rams in December of 1991.Mahomes connected with eight different receivers on Sunday night Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , including the big three—Travis Kelce had five catches for 95 yards, Sammy Watkins had four catches for 74 yards and Tyreek Hill had seven catches for 68 yards. Hill had the trio’s only touchdown on the evening during the same drive in which he dropped a wide-open touchdown pass. It was the 20th receiving touchdown of his three-year career.Denny Medley-USA TODAY SportsAfter a slow start to the season, Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt recorded his fourth game in a row of 80 rushing yards or more. Hunt had 86 rushing yards on the night, as well as a 2-yard rushing touchdown. Through the air, Hunt had five catches for 55 yards and two touchdowns. The three touchdowns make 20 touchdowns in Hunt’s two-year career. Hunt has tapped back into the kind of elusiveness we grew to expect stemming from his rookie season. Hunt has 13 career games with 100 yards from scrimmage or more in 23 total tries.Also, Chiefs fans weren’t the only ones who noticed his ridiculous hurdle:Tight end Demetrius Harris has Mahomes’ other touchdown with his only catch of the game.The offensive line tandem of center Jordan Devey and right guard Andrew Wylie is especially noteworthy. Based upon our first look, Geno Atkins was kept in check on the duo’s first full night together. The game marked Wylie’s first career start.Denny Medley-USA TODAY SportsChiefs fans will have trouble admitting, but defensive coordinator Bob Sutton deserves a lot of credit for the gameplan he put together against the Bengals.This comments came through from wide receiver AJ Green after the game:“They didn’t play a lot of press. I think they had drive where I had a couple of catches where they would be pressing me and bailing and then a lot of two-manning on my side. They switched up some things that we didn’t see on film...They played a lot of two-man. They didn’t show that on film during their previous games. So they played a lot of two-man and they didn’t bail that much on film, and they bailed a lot on me.”Green was the Bengals’ only effective offensive player—he had seven catches for 117 yards in the losing effort.Linebacker Dee Ford continues to be the Chiefs’ best defensive player. Ford sacked Andy Dalton for the fifth sack of his career, and Dalton fumbled on the play but managed to recover the football. Chris Jones also had a nice sack on the evening.Denny Medley-USA TODAY SportsChiefs safety Ron Parker picked off Dalton for his first touchdown in his eight-year career. It was the second interception of the season and the 11th for his career. The interception score gave the Chiefs a 38-7 lead with 11 minutes to go in the third quarter and pretty much sealed the game. The Chiefs hardly looked back after the pick-six.As it turns out, rookie linebacker Dorian O’Daniel really does exist. O’Daniel recorded his first career tackle (and tackle for loss) in the third quarter, and he finished with four solo tackles. Watch O’Daniel’s tackle of Bengals running back Joe Mixon here:Thunderous.I liked that it seemed like Reggie Ragland and Anthony Hitchens turned it on in this game, recording three tackles apiece. The Bengals were behind most of the game so they had to throw the ball quite a bit, but the explosive Mixon was held to just 50 rushing yards on 13 carries partly thanks to the effort of Ragland and Hitchens. I have begun to think that Ragland is just starting to get healthy as the Chiefs approach their eighth game of the season.As promised, no losers tonight. Except for maybe these guys.
