After advancing to the divisional round with a win at home, the Saints will now be tasked with breaking their road losing streak this Sunday when they visit the Minnesota Vikings.
New Orleans is a 5-point road underdog in Minneapolis at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The betting underdog is just 3-16 SU in the last 19 NFL divisional games.
“I’m trying to make our country stand for what we say we stand for,” Still says. “We say we believe in justice for all, we say we believe in equality, and freedom of speech and then when people are currently protesting, people have an issue with that, or when a police officer kills a young man or a young woman, they don’t serve any time. So, it’s just my goal is to hold this country accountable to the standards that we say we believe in.”
It doesn’t matter that this contract is nearly unprecedented at this level, because the Raiders set their own market, and they decided Gruden’s worth $10 million a year. This could change the entire head coach salary landscape.
Jay Jaffe: While Boston seems to be the obvious answer given their desire for power and a right-handed bat—not to mention the presence of Dave Dombrowski, who as Tigers GM plucked him off the scrap heap in 2014—they’ve got a full outfield and a pricey designated hitter in Hanley Ramirez. Since neither Ramirez nor Martinez can play first base, the Sox would either have to eat much or most of the $22 million the former is owed in order to make the transaction work, or trade Jackie Bradley Jr. and move Mookie Betts to centerfield.
What we’re seeing now from Ryan is a QB who is comfortable doing everything. He’s fine taking a back seat to the running game if the situation calls for it. When needed, he can throw the ball up and down the field and carry the team with his arm. Ryan can also show off his mobility, executing play-action fakes and buying extra time on bootlegs and rollouts.
Much of the Eagles hopes lies with Foles, and he’ll have to find a way to jump start the offense if they hope to make a long run in the postseason.
Foles is going to need to push the ball down field more often in the playoffs in order for the Eagles to win. Teams are going to put eight men in the box and try to stop the run. Defenses are going to try to take away Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor in the underneath passing game. The Falcons have the speed and talent do as much.
