Alex Tuch Jersey scored the tiebreaking goal in the second period and the Vegas Golden Knights pulled away for a 7-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

The win moved the Golden Knights back atop the NHL standings with 84 points — a record for an expansion team in its inaugural season — one point ahead of Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay.

Ryan Carpenter, William Karlsson, Reilly Smith, Luca Sbisa, Erik Haula Arizona Coyotes Jersey and Cody Eakin also scored for Vegas, which improved to 23-4-2 at home to also set the record for home wins by a team in its inaugural season. It topped the previous mark set by the Gordie Howe-lead 1979-80 Whalers (22-12-6).

NASA has been tracking this particular asteroid, known as Asteroid 2000 AJ129, for years. But it landed on everyone’s radar (pun intended) in January when the Daily Mail made it sound like this thing might actually collide with Earth. It won’t.

Here’s everything you need to know about this massive chunk of space gravel that’s not going to actually impact your life in any way on Sunday.

What is an asteroid? It’s a piece of rock that orbits the sun. The earth’s atmosphere gets hit with an asteroid about the size of a car once a year or so, but it typically burns itself up before hitting the ground, according to NASA.

Paul Hornung Authentic Jersey Kemba Walker led Charlotte with 31 points on 12-of-22 shooting as the Hornets improved to 25-33 with their second straight win. All five Charlotte starters scored in double digits and the Hornets hit 52.4 percent from 3-point range.

Dante Cunningham had 22 points and 12 rebounds for the Nets, who lost their eighth straight game and fell to 19-41.

Authentic Womens Joe Namath Jersey D’Angelo Russell, starting for the first time since November knee surgery, scored 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting.

Howard set the tone from the start, with 10 points and 11 rebounds after just 10 minutes of play in the first quarter in leading the Hornets to a 32-28 edge.

That first quarter really hurt us, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. It wasn’t going as well with Dwight Howard in there, but we all have to help him (center Jarrett Allen) and do a better job; that is a load and a half.

Patricia bucked that trend. He held down a spot on the team’s offensive line from 1992 to 1995, then spent his first post-graduate year on the sideline as a graduate assistant. That foray into coaching could have been the end of his football career; the low pay commensurate with football’s equivalent of an internship pushed him into the real world. Patricia spent two years of working with Hoffman Air & Filtration, designing, building, and selling centrifuges. By all accounts, he was a successful and diligent worker, but the siren call of Oklahoma drills and defensive audibles lured him back to the sideline.

That’s why Eagles defensive tackle Beau Allen is requesting that a fans toss him and his teammates beers while they drive by:

This is a great way to go about this. While the Eagles could have easily stocked up the big buses with plenty of beer, it seems like the least fans could do to thank the players for finally bringing the city a Super Bowl.

In fact, they really should just toss those free Bud Lights that are going around, since they agreed to provide freebies during the parade. Offensive tackle Lane Johnson said he’d give free beers if the Eagles won, so Bud Light took him Womens Wilbert Montgomery Jersey up on it.

While they aren’t unlimited, fans should chuck ’em into the buses. Philly fans throw stuff all the time, anyway.

Good on Allen for his request. This is how Twitter was intended to be used anyway.

This fan wasn’t the only one spreading ashes at the parade, according to Philly.com. Another fan, Dustin Slaughter, said his dad would have been one of the first to line up at the parade today if he were alive, so he brought a small urn of his ashes to the parade.

My uncle, who was also a father figure in my life, passed away a year and a half ago. Yesterday was his birthday and he was the biggest
Steve Grogan Jersey Eagles fan. His brother is taking a small vial of his ashes to the #EaglesParade to be spread out as they follow along. I love and miss you.

That catch is also so iconic because it reminds us of the impossibility of Nick Foles. Thrust into the spotlight after an injury to the Eagles’ franchise quarterback Carson Wentz, and less than a year removed from being cut and contemplating retirement, Foles didn’t just manage the games to get his team to the Super Bowl, he was oftentimes spectacular.

Unfortunately, although it is counterintuitive, a slightly heavier ball travels farther than a drier one. So why has run scoring sharply declined in Coors Field? In 2008, Edmund R. Meyer and John L.

This will never happen for precisely one reason: The NBA is in season in February, and in fact has its All-Star Weekend in February and will not pause an already too-long season every fourth year for an Olympic break. A number of NBA franchise owners already oppose participation in the summer, preferring their well-paid stars rest or train instead of playing for their countries.

The Vikings slammed the door on the NFC North with a 34-7 home rout of the Bengals.

There was some heartwarming to go along with the hardware as Teddy Bridgewater played in an NFL regular-season game for the first time in 714 days when he entered with 10:38 to go in the fourth quarter and the Vikings leading 34-0. Bridgewater had suffered a devastating knee injury before the start of the 2016 season, forcing the Vikings to trade for Sam Bradford and eventually turn to Case Keenum. Bridgewater’s first pass tipped off the fingers of Jerick McKinnon and was intercepted, but that did nothing to spoil the story.

“It was an emotional moment when he went out there, because we care so much for the kid,” coach Mike Zimmer said. … The Bills are still holding on to a wild-card berth as they try to make the playoffs for the first time since losing the Music City Miracle after the 2000 season.

The Broncos won five of Osweiler’s seven starts in 2015 run. They’ll need a similar run this year if they’re going to re-enter the AFC playoff race.

Said Raiders defensive lineman Bruce Irvin: “I think we’re just facing adversity right now. Coming into the year, you all [in the media] were telling us how good we are. I don’t know if we believed it or not, but it be like this.”

Safety Reggie Nelson said the team needs to “just get back to doing us — winning, playing fast and do what we do best.’’

“We’ve got a lot of work to do and that’s what we plan to do and try turn this thing around,’’ Nelson said. “We’re running out of time.”

After the Chiefs expressed interest in Surtain, we started negotiating a new contract for him while the two teams agreed on trade compensation. Surtain, whose 29th birthday was approaching, went for a 2005 second-round pick (46th overall) while 2005 fifth-round picks were also swapped with the Chiefs moving up 24 spots. At the time, Surtain was in the discussion for best NFL cornerback not named Champ Bailey.

And so we again see how patrons of teams with the worst records are “rewarded” with the best starting times.

If their teams are decent or better, they can expect inconvenient late-afternoon or late-night starts, which also diminishes the value of their tickets and, under Goodell, their “good investments” in PSLs.

There can be no more consistent, stronger message that suckers remain the NFL’s best cash customers.

Has the last-play hero of any game ever looked like a bigger jerk than Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs did?

First, despite Diggs’ post-touchdown peacocking, the Vikings are not playing in the NFC Championship game because he made a play, then took it to the house with :00 on the clock.

Brett Hundley Mens Jersey Some will take Gruden’s tepid assessment as a dig at his three-year starter, but I believe he is really being honest about what his QB1 has been for his squad. Cousins has been a stat-stuffer at the position, but his individual play hasn’t gotten the Redskins over the hump. Sure, you can point to his ever-changing supporting cast and a subpar defense as Alex Killorn Jersey reasons for the team’s mediocrity, but $25 million quarterbacks — which is the neighborhood Cousins was in for 2017, having signed a second consecutive franchise tag for $23.94 million — are expected to elevate the play of the team regardless of circumstance.

The Bucs hope Murray will put an end to what has been a two-year odyssey at kicker.

Murray said, soon after Folk’s nightmarish game against New England, he had Bucs fans calling for him to be signed.

NFL seeks dismissal of Ezekiel Elliott Jersey challenge to 6-game ban

The NFL is asking a federal court to toss a request from Ezekiel Elliott’s legal team for a temporary restraining order that would prevent the league from enforcing a suspension of the Dallas running back over a domestic violence case.
(Oakland Raiders Tim Brown Game Nike Women's White Jersey) NFL Road #81
The filing Monday night said the request on Elliott’s behalf was invalid because it was asking the court to stop a ruling from Harold Henderson before the arbitrator had even made a decision on an appeal of the six-game suspension for last year’s NFL rushing leader.

Later Thursday, Boldin came to the defense of the players continuing to protest, including Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon, saying on Twitter that the agreement does not mandate an end to any player demonstrations.

Limited Mens Nick Boyle Jersey Commissioner Roger Goodell would probably like to pretend he never heard that.

McNair was one of the NFL’s 11 representatives at the meeting. The following day, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell convened all 32 owners and the previous day’s meeting was discussed.

We can’t have the inmates running the prison, McNair said to the other NFL owners one day after the meeting, according to ESPN.

The image of an NFL owner using that analogy after a meeting with players to discuss these issues, which included 鈥?per an NFL memo obtained by ESPN 鈥?criminal justice reform, law enforcement and community engagement is not likely to help the league’s desire to ease tensions.

Karl Klug Limited Jersey On Thursday, Shanahan talked about reaching the Super Bowl for the first time and whether he feels added pressure because his father Mike won Super Bowls in 1997 and ’98 as the head coach of the Broncos and in 1994 as the offensive coordinator of the 49ers.

Not really at all, Shanahan said Thursday. My dad has been my dad my whole life. That’s all I know. That’s just been my life so it’s not a big deal to me.

Maybe first getting into the NFL for the first time it’s kind of cool, ‘Hey, I’m trying to get into something you did.’| Even though he told me not to, Cameron Artis-Payne Jersey I think when I did he was pretty flattered and proud of me for it.

The protests began last season when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Jersey began kneeling during the anthem to call attention to racial inequality.

The NFL Network is trying to call Jami Cantor’s bluff.
Men's Adidas Minnesota Timberwolves #8 Nemanja Bjelica Swingman Black Alternate NBA Jersey
NFL Enterprises, which owns the network, has denied all allegations of sexual harassment a former female employee lobbied against a handful of on-air talent and executives in a lawsuit filed in December. The company is requesting the judge dismiss Cantor’s complaint on the basis that she approved, consented to, authorized and/or ratified the sexually explicit behavior, according to court documents obtained by The Blast Thursday.

Sapp, also a Hall of Famer, urinated in front of Cantor, according to the suit, and laughed off her plea for him to leave.

Sorry mama, but your office shouldn’t be our s锟斤拷er, he allegedly said at the time.

Cantor accused Evans, a former NFL fullback, of telling her, You’re making me horny, and that he needed to get in you deep and hard.

Former Eagles quarterback McNabb sent Cantor sexually inappropriate text messages, she said, including one in which he asked her if she was a squirter.

McNabb and Eric Davis, accused of sexual harassment by Cantor and another former female employee, were fired from their roles as radio hosts at ESPN following an investigation into their past conduct. Faulk, Evans and Taylor have Womens Terrell Owens Jersey been suspended by NFL Network pending a separate investigation.

Limited Youth Devonta Freeman Jersey Last one first: The number of commercials in a given game has infuriated viewers, causing 60 minutes of NFL game time to stretch to an average of 3:07:08 of real time last season. According to USA Today, Goodell’s plan to revamp the commercial break involves taking fewer breaks 锟斤拷 for a longer amount of time. According to the report, NFL research has shown fans notice the number of breaks more than the length of them.

Elite Youth is no results! Ryan Carrethers Jersey We know how annoying it is when we come back from a commercial break, kick off, and then cut to a commercial again, Goodell wrote in an email sent to fans Wednesday. I hate that, too. Our goal is to eliminate it.

Last year, the standard NFL broadcast featured a fixed number of commercials per quarter 锟斤拷 five, six, five and five, respectively 锟斤拷 each for 1:50. The new strategy will involve four per quarter, but for 2:20. The new plan allots a total of 37 minutes and 20 seconds for ads; the old plan had 38 minutes and 30 minutes. But the goal isn’t to shave that crucial minute and 10 seconds from the game.

Current NFC No. 1 seed Minnesota finds itself in the top three.

Each week, national NFL writer Mark Maske will provide his ranking of the league’s 32 teams. This week, the Patriots celebrate their eight-game winning streak with a return to top spot, immediately followed by the AFC’s other powerhouse, the Steelers, who will host New England in what could be a candidate for the game of the year a week from Sunday.

Then, the Eagles, who had their nine-game winning streak snapped in Seattle Sunday night, and the Rams, who will host those Eagles this weekend, round out a competitive top five.

The Patriots reclaim the No. 1 spot with their victory in Buffalo and the Eagles’ loss in Seattle. This is where the Patriots were supposed to spend the entire season, out in front with the rest of the NFL chasing them.

Ward was named first-team All-American and rightfully so. He finished the year with 15 pass breakups, two interceptions and repeated blanket coverage. If he was a few inches taller, he would be a top-10 pick.

Williams might have the highest ceiling of any offensive tackle in the class, but a few hiccups in his injury-shortened 2017 put him at No. 24 for the time being. The pre-draft process will be vital for him.

Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco led the Ravens to the Super Bowl and remains under contract through 2022. But his shaky recent performance could make the Ravens at least consider a change. The Ravens are in danger of missing the playoffs for a third straight season and haven’t won a playoff game since beating the Steelers in the wild-card round after the 2014 season. Pro Football Focus rated Flacco the 27th-best quarterback in the NFL last year, and so far this season, he ranks 26th.

NFL players and owners met in New York to discuss how to move forward on social issues, as Mark Maske reports. The sides, Maske writes, did not come to a resolution over how players should observe the national anthem before game. From the story:

Players and owners met with Commissioner Roger Goodell at the NFL’s offices beginning around 10 a.m. The meeting broke up close to 2 p.m., after the scheduled 1 p.m. beginning of the owners’ meeting in Lower Manhattan.

The Eagles could have veered conservative after Torrey Smith Jersey dropped what would have been a 54-yard completion on Philly’s opening drive.

Nick Foles came into this game as a roundly dismissed, laughed-off signal-caller who seemed destined to leave Cam Atkinson Authentic Jersey everyone wondering what could have been with Carson Wentz at the wheel. Instead, Foles played his finest game in four seasons, tugging the Eagles to their first Super Bowl in 13 years with a performance that saw the backup passer take shots downfield, thrive against pressure and display tangible confidence.

Operating in a fever-dream state from wire to wire, Foles devastated the Vikings with a rash of huge plays through the air. Instead, Foles rebounded to unfurl a 53-yard scoring strike to Alshon Jeffery before finding Smith for a 41-yard touchdown that put the Eagles up 31-7 in the third quarter.

Authentic Youth Johnny Oduya Jersey Stephen Ross of the Miami Dolphins has said he expects his players and Coach Adam Gase has enacted that policy, but allows for players to remain in the locker room or in the tunnel leading to the field during the anthem.

Guidelines for the anthem are contained in the game operations manual given to teams, not the publicly available NFL rule book. That manual says: The national anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the national anthem.

Authentic Youth Dez Bryant Jersey Instead, there’s a less than marquee QB matchup between two backups pressed into duty by knee injuries to both Bradford and Wentz 鈥?Case Keenum and Nick Foles. Keenum, a No. 1 for most of the season, has found a groove in the Vikings’ offense to the point where he’s about to hit the jackpot as a free agent. Foles, through a few bumps and lumps after taking over in December, has become a good complement for the Eagles’ many other strengths on both sides of the ball.

As a former Vikings GM, long-time team employee and life-long fan as a native Minnesotan, I’ll always be emotionally invested in the team. I understand all too well the past playoff successes, like getting to the Super Bowl in my rookie season as an assistant PR director in 1976, and the failures, like the 1998 NFC title game loss in OT 鈥?ugh 鈥?along with four Super Bowl losses.

The meeting will be part of the ongoing dialogue between the league, owners of teams, players and the NFL Players Association about support by the league and owners for players’ community activism endeavors.
