Not much time against most teams. Far too much against the Steelers.

“This guy consumes all things baseball,” Eppler said. “There is not a lot else going on in his world but baseball [and] training. He does like to read a lot.”

Eppler also described Ohtani as “very humble” and compared his mental makeup to that of Trout, whose video phone call to recruit Ohtani apparently went quite well. Trout, on the East Coast for his wedding this weekend, called Eppler late Monday night after the meeting to ask: “What’s he like? What’s he like?”

Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis — Anthony Miller is small at a listed 5-11, 190 pounds, but he makes plays and catches and has the versatility to both catch and run the ball. He had 14 catches for 195 yards and three touchdowns in Memphis’ loss to UCF. The question with Miller is where he fits in an NFL offense. He looks tailor-made to be a slot guy, and considering the Tigers run a very untraditional route Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys tree, putting him in the slot will make his transition to the next level go more smoothly.

Each week during this year’s college football regular season we will highlight some of the top draft-eligible performers from around the country.

Lamar Jackson had one of the best seasons in college football history to Best Place To Buy Cheap Jerseys win the Heisman Trophy last year. The Louisville quarterback is having a similar season this year.

After throwing for 3,543 yards and 30 touchdowns with 1,571 rushing yards and 21 scores, the 6-3, 211-pound junior has 3,489 passing yards and 25 touchdown tosses this season after throwing for 216 yards and two scores in Saturday’s 44-17 win over Kentucky.

He’s the most athletic quarterback in college football and can have the same type of NFL success enjoyed by Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson prior to his season-ending ACL injury.

Bills still undefeated at home after win over Raiders

No team has gone to Buffalo and won this season. The Raiders were the latest to fall to the Bills in Orchard Park, losing 34-14. Here’s what we learned:

The Chiefs were also missing guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, inactive for his fourth straight game with a knee injury.

The most damning thing I can say about the Brock Osweiler era in Houston is that his black hole of mediocrity managed to suck in Hopkins for an entire season. After suffering through a totally anonymous 2016, Hopkins has turned things on with Watson at quarterback.

Brendan Lemieux scored his first career goal for Winnipeg on a slap shot from the point at 12:20 of the third. The son of Claude Lemieux made his NHL debut Oct. 20 after being called up from the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.

“It feels great,” he said. “Obviously, really fortunate to have been able Cheap Laker Jerseys Sale to get one and really excited. Every day I’m up here has been a blessing and I’m Cheap Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys just trying to run with it.”

The Nashville Predators want to make sure that one bad outing doesn’t continue and push them farther down the Central Division standings.

In a matchup involving the two most recent Western Conference champions, San Jose continues a five-game homestand on Wednesday night against Nashville

Russell Westbrook has triple-double vs. all teams except Thunder

With 12 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night, Russell Westbrook has only one team that he hasn’t recorded a triple-double against, and he probably won’t get to cross that one off.

Antetokounmpo, the NBA’s scoring leader with a 34.7 average, had 13 Cheap Kids NHL Jerseys of Milwaukee’s first 20 points. Coach Jason Kidd rested him until midway through the second quarter, when his hard dunk made it 59-41.

The Bucks hit nine 3-pointers in the first half, including four by Rashad Vaughn on six attempts. They finished with season highs in points and 3s (13).

Because the Broncos are on a short week and leave for Philadelphia Cheap Kids Baseball Jerseys after Friday’s practice, Joseph is expected to share his decision with Siemian and Osweiler Wednesday morning, then the rest of the players at the team meeting.

Siemian, who has won the job in back-to-back training camp battles, threw three interceptions in Monday night’s 29-19 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Only the Panthers’ Cam Newton and Cleveland Browns rookie DeShone Kizer — each with 11 — have thrown more interceptions than Siemian’s 10 this season.

Siemian is 29th in the league in passer rating (76.8) and has been sacked 25 times — tied for second highest among the league’s starters. The Broncos, despite owning the league’s No. 1 defense, have lost four of the past five to drop to 3-5.

Bills surprisingly trade Marcell Dareus to already scary Jaguars defense

The Jacksonville Jaguars defense is already one of the best units in the NFL and now it stands to be even better after the team just acquired Marcell Dareus from the Buffalo Bills.

Before Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, the Packers quarterback said Cheap Jerseys Stitched he needed to make sure he got Bennett more involved early in games. Earlier this month, Bennett said he wasn’t disappointed in his relatively limited production because he was still getting used to playing with Rodgers, and the Packers were winning. They were 4-1 at the time but have lost two straight since Rodgers went down.

While Alabama fans might be flabbergasted they’re not No. 1, Georgia’s win at Notre Dame, along with four wins against teams over .500, helped push the Bulldogs to the top spot. Alabama’s best Cheap Jerseys UK win is against a 5-3 Texas A&M team that isn’t ranked by the committee.

No. 9 Wisconsin and No. 10 Miami, while both undefeated, are sitting behind six one-loss teams because of their weak schedules. One-loss Washington is the highest-ranked Pac-12 team at No. 12.

The Capital One Orange Bowl is guaranteed the ACC champion, but because Clemson is in a semifinal, it would take the next-highest ACC team, which would be No. 10 Miami. The Orange Bowl would then choose the next-highest-ranked team from the SEC, Big Ten or Notre Dame that is not a conference champion or is not in the top four. In this case, that would be No. 7 Penn State.

Deshaun Watson-vs.-Russell Wilson duel in Seattle was historic

“I think he’d probably say because he’s more of a pass-type of guy, coming from New Orleans, where they’re in a dome and you have Drew Brees, of course, throwing the ball,” Forte said. “You have to analyze your team and see what your guys do best.”

It was a one-possession game throughout the fourth quarter, yet the Jets passed on eight of their first 10 plays before they got into must-pass mode in the final minute. In fairness to Morton, the Jets struggled to run against the Falcons, managing only 43 yards.

Forte acknowledged as much, but he said they should’ve copied the Falcons’ approach.

How long has London played host? The London games in the International Series started Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China in 2007 with a low-scoring affair between the Giants and Dolphins at Wembley Stadium. The Giants won, 13-10. Since 2007, the NFL has played 18 different international Cheap Jerseys Youth games — all but one in London — in an effort to win over new fans and potentially expand beyond the United States.

The series has grown over the years, going to two London games in 2013, and topping out at four games in London for the 2017 season. So far, they’ve all been blowouts. In Week 3, the Jaguars crushed the Ravens, 44-7, in the first London game this season. A week later, the Saints blanked the Dolphins, 22-0, at Wembley Stadium. In Week 7 at Twickenham, the Rams shut out the Cardinals, 33-0.

Red Sox’s Steven Wright arrested, charged with domestic assault

Chosen in the second round out of Michigan State, McDowell was expected to provide Seattle with interior pass-rush as a member of the Seahawks’ defensive-line rotation. The Seahawks said their interest in trading for Sheldon Richardson began in earnest after McDowell’s accident.

It’d be easy to forget that the Patriots dynasty started with an upset. The Rams were 14-point favorites on Feb. 3, 2002 as the ‘Greatest Show on Turf’ sought to repeat its Super Bowl feat from a season ago.

But instead, it lost in a stunner as its offense failed for three quarters to make moves against a staunch Patriots defense. After three quarters, New England led 17-3. And two Kurt Warner touchdowns — one by land, one by air — could not avoid what we know now was inevitable: a last-second Adam Vinatieri field goal from 48 yards deep. A thrilling end. A crushing defeat for the Rams.

Wracked by injuries and losers of six of seven games, the 4-9 Texans are in a tailspin, leading to speculation about coach Cheap Jerseys In UK Bill O’Brien’s future.

But O’Brien said Monday he expects to be back for a fifth season in 2018.

“I signed a five-year contract,” O’Brien said at a news conference (via the Houston Chronicle). “I expect to be back, but these decisions aren’t made by me.”

It’s hard to blame O’Brien for the Texans’ woes Cheap Jerseys For Kids this year, as injuries have taken a toll. Quarterback Deshaun Watson was having a sensational rookie season before going down with a knee injury Nov. 1. Three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt is one of four defensive starters out with injuries.
