The NFL’s wild weekend of wild-card games demonstrated that even in this age of explosive offenses Youth Malik Jackson Jerseys , defense still dominates in the playoffs and it often comes down to a toe, a few fingers or even a 40-year-old hamstring.Kicker Sebastian Janikowski’s season — and maybe career — ended when he popped his left hamstring on an errant 57-yard field goal try just before halftime of Seattle’s 24-22 loss to Dallas on Saturday night.Without a backup plan, the Seahawks had to go for it on fourth down in field-goal range and had to go for 2 points after a touchdown rather than try to kick it through the uprights. And when they pulled within a field goal with 1:18 left, they were toast without a Plan B for an onside kick.Punter Michael Dickson’s drop-kick went way too far and Dallas receiver Cole Beasley made what might be the easiest catch ever to seal a playoff win.The onside kick nearly disappeared in 2018 after the league’s competition committee last offseason outlawed teams from stacking one side or getting a running start. The rules were designed to cut down on concussions but drastically reduced the onside kick as an option.Only four of 54 attempts were successful during the regular season, an 8 percent success rate that pales in comparison to the 23 percent conversion rate in 2017, when 13 of 55 onside kicks were recovered by the kicking team.Coach Pete Carroll figured Janikowski simply hurt himself trying to kick the ball as hard as he could.And Seabass might have kicked his final game in the NFL. The 40-year-old isn’t under contract for next season and also got hurt last month.On Sunday, Chicago’s dominant defense that led the league by yielding just 17.7 points a game held the Philadelphia Eagles to 16 points but lost by a point when Bears kicker Cody Parkey, who made 76.7 percent of his kicks in the regular season, double-doinked a 43-yard attempt in the final seconds off the left upright and the crossbar.He said after the game he thought he hit it well and was at a loss to explain the miss.Turns out, Philadelphia defensive lineman Treyvon Hester tipped the ball.After reviewing the play and seeing Hester’s left hand hit the ball, the NFL officially ruled it a blocked field goal on Monday.That provides some explanation but little consolation for Parkey and Bears fans, who booed Parkey as he ran off the field after kneeling with teammates and opponents for a postgame prayer.He was at his locker as soon as reporters entered and accepted responsibility for the loss that abruptly ended the Bears’ first playoff appearance in eight years.“There’s really no answer to it,” Parkey said. “I thought I hit a good ball. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it. I feel terrible, 100 percent take that loss on me. It is what it is. Sun is going to shine tomorrow. Life is going to go on. Unfortunately, it’s going to sting for a while.”Eagles kicker Jake Elliott was one of several players who stood up for Parkey on social media.“This is a standup guy that a lot of young players can look up to,” Elliott wrote on Twitter . “This is how you handle adversity like a pro. Cody is a heck of a kicker and will be for a long time. No reason to be taking the heat he is especially when that ball was tipped. #ClassAct”Eagles coach Doug Pederson on Monday praised Hester, who began the season on the practice squad Malik Jackson Jerseys Stitched , for having “a big hand in the game.”Other takeaways from the first week of the playoffs:— The Chargers flummoxed the Ravens by lining up with seven defensive backs on all but one snap in their 23-17 win in Baltimore. Rookie All-Pro safety Derwin James set the tone when he dropped Lamar Jackson for a 1-yard loss on the first play from scrimmage. The alignment bottled up Jackson, who had run for nearly 700 yards in his seven starts and finished with just 54 yards. More importantly, the Chargers made sure Jackson couldn’t bring back the Ravens with his right arm after they fell behind 23-3 midway through the fourth quarter.— The league might have some tweaking to do to the catch rule. Or, rather, recovery rule. Just before halftime of the Eagles-Bears game, Mitchell Trubisky hit wide receiver Anthony Miller with a pass. Miller took a few steps before Philadelphia defensive back Cre’Von LeBlanc knocked it loose. Neither team’s players went for the ball near the goal line, and an official picked it up .The play was ruled an incomplete pass although replays showed Miller securing and then losing possession, making it a completion followed by a fumble. But because it didn’t go out of bounds and neither team secured it, the rule states it has to be an incomplete pass , as Al Riveron, the NFL’s senior vice president of officiating, explained on Twitter.— ESPN apologized for playing “Dixie” during the Colts-Texans game, when the song was added to a lighthearted look at Andrew Luck’s Twitter alter ego, Captain Andrew Luck. ESPN had produced a graphic that depicted Luck as a Union general being protected by both Union and Confederate soldiers. It was based on a parody account that pretends Luck is a Civil War officer writing letters to his mother. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...Former Eagles player: Doug Pederson is ‘losing control of this team’ - PhillyVoice鈥?#8221;When you think about the Dallas trash talk, you think of all the things that we’re commenting on off the field, all the fights and stuff that are happening before the game, he’s losing control of this team, and it’s just true. I’m sorry to say that Youth DeAndre Carter Jerseys , but it’s just the truth. I don’t think that they’re respecting him the way they should respect their head coach. I saw them walk on Dak Prescott’s touchdown (Sunday) night. They were walking to the line of scrimmage while the Cowboys were hustling. Those are things that speak to the head coach, and that was a sad showing last night.”Saints’ red zone concepts present huge test for Eagles’ defense - BGNHow do you stop the league’s top scoring offense? Better yet, how do you do it on the road? And lastly, how do you do it with a decimated secondary? Those are the challenges facing the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles as they limp in to a crucial Week 11 matchup. While the Eagles’ offense has struggled to get off the ground, the New Orleans Saints’ offense has been a lightning bolt. They own the highest points per game total (36.7) and have averaged 42 points in the last three games. They’re even more dangerous at home (37.2) and they storm out of the gates with a league leading 19.4 points in the first half. That last number is only rising. In the last three games the Saints have averaged a gargantuan 29 first half points.The Kist & Solak Show #41: Finding Blame in the Sea of Misery - BGN Radio鈥∕ichael Kist and Benjamin Solak have digested the coaches film of the Eagles stunning loss to the Cowboys and have takes about Pederson, Schwartz, Groh and the execution by the players or lack there of.Lessons from Week 10: Diagnosing flaws on NFL’s biggest flops - ESPN鈥↙ast year, the Eagles were second in the league (behind the Bills, somehow) in third-down conversions and first in fourth-down conversions. This year, they’re 11th in third-down conversions and tied for fourth (with five other teams) in fourth-down conversions. Last year, they ranked first in red zone efficiency, converting 65.5 percent of their red zone drives into touchdowns. This year, they’re 17th in that category, at 55.9 percent. In the fourth quarter and overtime this year, the Eagles are converting 34.4 percent of their third downs, which ranks 20th in the league. Last year, that number was 40.3, tied for eighth. The Eagles aren’t a bad team DeAndre Carter Jerseys Stitched , but they’ve lost a little bit of last year’s ability to make the exceptional play at the critical time. That makes them more like the rest of the teams in the league, but they have time to turn it around and two games left against Washington to help them make up the deficit. As with the other two teams on our list, it isn’t yet over for Philly. The Eagles just need to start looking more like the 2017 version of themselves if they’re going to make a repeat run.Eagle Eye: The Most Alarming Takeaway From Sunday Night - PE.comThe run defense was the most alarming takeaway from Sunday night. This was the most yards allowed on the ground by an Eagles team in three years, and the best single-game performance by any running back during that time frame. There were misfits in the run, where players weren’t in their gap. There were occasions where players couldn’t get off blocks. There were also missed tackles. We saw examples of all of the above in this game. For most of the first three quarters, however, it was a typical performance by the run defense. It wasn’t until late in the game when things unraveled.Eagles defense forcing turnovers at an alarmingly low rate - NBCSP鈥═he lack of takeaways this year is pretty damning. They are one of 30 teams in NFL history with seven or fewer takeaways through nine games. Six of those teams are from this season and all six (Eagles, Raiders, Ravens, Giants, Bucs, 49ers) probably aren’t going to make the playoffs. And of the 24 teams to previously do it before this season, just six of them made the playoffs. Good teams find ways to get the ball back. Which Eagles coaches could be on the hot seat? Examining Mike Groh, Jim Schwartz, Duce Staley, others - NJ.com鈥╓hile Groh’s title doesn’t really reflect his actual position, he is the top offensive mind behind Pederson. The drop off in offensive production from last year to this season has been alarming. With Frank Reich (Indianapolis) and John DeFilippo (Minnesota) elsewhere, Groh’s promotion has done little to stabilize the unit. It’s hard to pinpoint what Groh’s real responsibilities are Youth Cameron Johnston Jerseys , so it’s difficult to call for his job at this point. However, the optics aren’t terrific with him replacing DeFilippo and Reich so far.5 things that have gone wrong for Philadelphia Eagles this season - DelawareOnline鈥↖t was a formula that worked so well for the Eagles last season as running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chris Long and others provided leadership, not to mention solid play, to help fuel the Super Bowl run. Eagles executive vice president for football operations Howie Roseman doubled down on that strategy this season by signing more players over the age of 30. So far, it has backfired, mostly due to injury. Safety Corey Graham and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata have both missed several games with hamstring injuries. Long isn’t having as good a season as he did in 2017. Michael Bennett, with two sacks Sunday, is playing better after a relatively slow start.Crabbs’ 2019 Mock Draft 3.0 - The Draft Network16. Philadelphia Eagles. PICK: Yodny Cajuste, OT, WVU. The Eagles have enjoyed top shelf play at Left Tackle for quite some time under the watch of Jason Peters. Part of what makes Peters so good is how well he moves for his size. That is one trait Peters shares with West Virginia’s Yodny Cajuste. Add in the pipeline between Philadelphia and Morgantown (Smallwood, Douglas, Gibson in recent years) and the Eagles figure to be a team in on the action for Cajuste.Who will make a play for Le’Veon Bell? - PFTTeams to watch most closely include the Jets, Dolphins, Ravens, Browns, Colts, Raiders Cameron Johnston Jerseys Stitched , Broncos, Eagles, Washington, Packers, and Buccaneers.Week 10 DVOA Ratings - Football Outsiders鈥˙ig wins mean big movement in our DVOA ratings, with Pittsburgh jumping up from 11th to fifth and big moves for Green Bay, Tennessee, and Buffalo as well.

Why did the NFL move the Chiefs vs. Rams game from Mexico City to Los Angeles? - SB NationThe NFL’s never been one to let hazardous field conditions interfere with its unstoppable corporate machine. How would you explain Dan Snyder’s Maryland mud pit or the carpet literally coming up in Houston? So you know things must be bad at Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca if the league decided a Week 11 game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams couldn’t be played there because the field’s in such terrible shape. On Tuesday morning, the field conditions were considered a “significant concern,” according to Adam Schefter. And just a few hours later, the NFL pulled the plug on its game in Mexico....Social Media Information:BGN Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBGN Twitter: Follow @BleedingGreenBGN Manager: Brandon Lee Gowton: Follow @BrandonGowtonBGN Radio Twitter: Follow @BGN_Radio
