CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton on Sunday shrugged off the impact of a thumb injury on his throwing hand and how it impacted his accuracy in a 35-27 victory over the New York Jets.

But coach Ron Rivera reiterated Monday that the injury that landed Newton on the injury report for two days last week could have been a factor in his quarterback completing a season-low 39.3 percent of his passes.

“That’s possibly why a few of the balls sailed on him,” Rivera said of Newton, who completed 11 of 28 pass attempts for 168 yards.

Rivera said the thumb is getting better, and he didn’t express concern it would be a factor heading into Sunday’s showdown at 8-3 New Orleans for first place in the NFC South.

Offensive coordinator Mike Shula also didn’t express concern, although he admitted early last week “it was a little bit of an adjustment” for Newton throwing with the injury.

Wide receiver Devin Funchess, who caught seven of eight targets for 108 yards, said the “funky weather” could have been a factor in Newton’s struggles.

“The wind was stopping it. It carried some of them,” Funchess said of Newton’s passes. “We all got injuries. You’ve got to play through ‘em. So that’s what he did, as well.

“But the wind was out there carrying the ball, too. You can’t blame it all on his thumb.”

Newton’s previous low completion percentage this season was 53.8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Jets game dropped his season average to 60.3, putting him behind his career-best average of 61.7 in 2013.

Newton completed 65.4 percent of his passes in a 34-13 loss to New Orleans in Week 3 but had no touchdown passes and was intercepted three times.

He ran the ball only three times for 16 games against the Saints. It wasn’t until the fourth game at New England that the 2015 NFL MVP was turned loose in the running game. He carried eight times for 44 yards against the Patriots.

He’s averaged 8.6 carries over the last eight games, including nine carries for 28 yards and a touchdown against the Jets.

That, more than the thumb, could be a factor on Sunday.

“Always his threat, I think; teams have to account for that,” Shula said. “We give him a little freedom, and he does a good job with that. He understands that teams have to respect what he can bring to the table running-wise as well.

“As long as he does it with a sound process in mind, that’s going to be helpful.”

Cheap New York Giants Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

Yet another member of the New York Giants could be on the verge of having his season ended.

Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who has played the past two months with a debilitating ankle injury that has limited his ability to cut and change direction, could be shut down to undergo ankle surgery, league sources told ESPN.

The ankle has hindered Jenkins for roughly the past eight weeks, according to sources, and it clearly has impacted his play.

Doctors are scheduled to discuss Jenkins’ future on Monday, but he is expected to undergo ankle surgery at some point this offseason — and his offseason could begin as soon as this week, according to sources.

Jenkins was spotted wearing a walking boot on his left foot Friday, and Giants coach Ben McAdoo admitted he had concerns about his top cornerback’s injury.

Asked whether there were any concern that Jenkins’ injury could be long-term, McAdoo said he is “in some pain right now, so there’s a possibility.” An answer on Jenkins’ status is expected this week.

Two games deep into the second half of the season, it’s easy to pinpoint why the Cowboys playoff hopes are crumbling.

It has to do with their performance in the second half of games.

Appreciate the symmetry? The Cowboys don’t. The team’s inability to finish this fight, as they like to plaster on T-shirts and workout gear, has put them in a precarious position entering their Thanksgiving Day meeting with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Defense of their NFC East title has essentially been conceded as they lag four games behind Philadelphia with six to play. They are on the outside looking in at the Wild Card race with four conference losses putting them in a bind when it comes to potential tie breakers.

The recent fade mirrors the Cowboys troubles in the second half. Philadelphia delivered the exclamation point with 30 unanswered points Sunday night, leading Eagles running back Jay Ajayi to declare “we kind of had our way with them” and suggest the Cowboys quit.

Pittsburgh Steelers

One 40-point game can do wonders for your scoring average. In one fell swoop Thursday night the Steelers went from 20th in the NFL in scoring up to 13th. It was the long-awaited breakout game for the Steelers, and the players said afterward they hoped it would be the start of a new trend.

But is their 22.7 points-per-game average enough to win a Super Bowl? History suggests it would be difficult, although not impossible, to accomplish. In fact, if the Steelers maintain their current pace (22.7 points per game) and standing in the league (13th) and went on to win the Super Bowl, they would be one of the worst offenses in NFL history to raise the Lombardi trophy.

Coincidentally, the 2008 Steelers are the worst scoring offense to win a Super Bowl. The 2008 Steelers ranked 20th in the NFL in scoring, averaging 21.7 points per game. That Steelers team narrowly beats out the 2015 Denver Broncos, who were 19th in the league in scoring, averaging 22.2 points per game.

Since the 1970 merger, only the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (18th), 1990 N.Y. Giants (15th), 2007 Giants (14th), and 2000 Baltimore Ravens (14th) won the Super Bowl with offenses ranked lower than 13th in the league.

Not so coincidentally, many of those teams are regarded as some of the best defenses of all time, including the 2000 Ravens, the 2008 Steelers and the 2002 Buccaneers. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was a young assistant on the Buccaneers staff and was the head coach of the Steelers six years later.

It certainly helps matters if you’re powered by the No. 1 defense in the league. That’s what the 2000 Ravens, 2002 Buccaneers, 2008 Steelers and 1990 Giants were.

The 2008 Steelers are an interesting comparison for this Steelers team. They endured similar struggles with their offense. They scored 14 points or fewer six times. There was a 15-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, a 21-14 home loss to the Giants and a 31-14 shellacking in Tennessee two weeks before the playoffs began.

They still managed to go 12-4 and earned a first-round playoff bye, mostly because they held nine opponents to 15 points or fewer.

This Steelers team has held eight of the first 10 opponents to 18 points or fewer. Sure, it has endured a 30-9 home loss to Jacksonville and a 23-20 overtime loss in Chicago, plus a couple of uninspiring wins over hapless teams such as the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.

But it’s quite possible in February fans will look back on the losses to the Jaguars and Bears with an inquisitive: ‘What the heck happened there?’ followed by a dismissive: ‘Who cares? When’s the parade?’

It’s true the NFL has veered more toward offense in recent years with the New England Patriots serving as the poster child. But they’ve never won a Super Bowl with the league’s No. 1 scoring offense. They have won twice with the league’s top scoring defense, including last season.

In the first 51 Super Bowls the league’s top defense was victorious 15 times, or 29.4 percent of the time. A top-five scoring defense won it 31 times, or 60.7 percent of the time.

Contrast that to the number of times the No. 1 scoring offense has won the Super Bowl. That’s happened 10 times, most recently in 2009 when the New Orleans Saints did it.

There certainly have been a few outlier teams over the years that defied the odds. The 2007 Giants are probably the most notable because they are the only team to win a Super Bowl without a top-10 offense or defense. They were 14th in points scored and 17th in points allowed.

But for the most part, NFL history suggests teams better have either a dominant offense or a dominant defense to win championships. And unless more 40-point games are in the Steelers’ future, it’s the defense that will be doing all the heavy lifting.

Cheap Green Bay Packers Jersey Wholesale From China Sale

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Jones isn’t lost for the year, but the Green Bay Packers rookie running back could miss a good chunk of the closing stretch because of the knee injury he suffered in Sunday’s win at Chicago.

Jones has an MCL injury and is expected to be out for three to six weeks, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Monday. Jones was hurt on the opening drive against the Bears when his right knee appeared to get caught underneath him as he was tackled by linebacker Sam Acho.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Monday that Jones’ knee is a “multiple-week injury.”

The rookie fifth-round pick is the Packers’ leading rusher on the season with 370 yards on 70 carries (5.3-yard average) and has had two 100-yard games since he was inserted into the lineup in Week 4 after Ty Montgomery suffered broken ribs.

The Packers also could be without Montgomery, who reinjured his ribs on Sunday against the Bears. Montgomery is the team’s second-leading rusher with 273 yards on 71 carries (3.8-yard average). Both Jones and Montgomery have three rushing touchdowns to lead the team.

McCarthy said Monday that Montgomery’s injury was not as serious as Jones’. “I would think he has a chance this week,” McCarthy said.

That leaves two other rookies, Jamaal Williams and Devante Mays, as the only healthy halfbacks on the roster. Williams, a fourth-round pick, finished Sunday’s game after Jones and Montgomery dropped out and rushed for a season-high 67 yards on 20 carries. Mays, a seventh-round pick, was inactive against the Bears and has not had a carry yet this season.

The Packers had a season-high 37 rushing attempts against the Bears in Brett Hundley’s first win since he took over at quarterback for Aaron Rodgers, who broke his right collarbone on Oct. 15. Among the rushes were three Wildcat plays with receiver Randall Cobb taking the direct snap and rushing for minus-1, 6 and 3 yards on those plays.

Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jersey Wholesale From Sale

One, sure way for the sun to set on Pete Carroll’s shiny disposition?

Ask him how his Seahawks are going to replace Richard Sherman for the rest of this season.

“I don’t know. I don’t even know how to address that right now,” the coach said in the stunned aftermath of Seattle losing its three-time All-Pro cornerback to a torn Achilles tendon during Thursday night’s win at Arizona.

When the Seahawks (6-3) host Atlanta (5-4) next Monday it will be their first game without Sherman since 2010. That was the season before he entered the league as Seattle’s fifth-round draft choice.

The Seahawks have played 105 consecutive regular-season games, 12 more in the playoffs–including two Super Bowls and the franchise’s only NFL title–with Sherman there. He’s started every one of Seattle’s games at left cornerback since Oct. 30, 2011.

Now there’s a gaping void there.

“He’s just been a bastion of consistency, competitiveness and toughness through all of the stuff that we’ve worked through. It’s been awesome,” Carroll said. “It’s been hard. It’s been challenging. And he’s been extraordinary. Almost an iconic player in this league.

“He’s going to have to sit. I’ll try not to go overboard on this, but that’s just the way I feel. We’ll miss the heck out of him. He’ll been with us every step of the way when he can, but we’ll miss the heck out of him.”

Opponents for years have usually avoided throwing to Sherman’s side of the field, often leaving the rest of the Seahawks’ defense only having to defend 75 percent of the field.

Those days and weeks are over. At least for this year. And Sherman’s beyond isn’t exactly set, either.

Good thing Rick Smith likes John Schneider. If not, the Seahawks wouldn’t have a veteran starting cornerback ready to replace Sherman, although not at all near Sherman’s level.

Jeremy Lane replaced Sherman for the final 1½ quarters in the win over the Cardinals. Seattle traded him to Houston a couple weeks ago while acquiring left tackle Duane Brown. But Lane had a bruised thigh and strained groin at the time and had missed two of the last three games when he failed his trade physical with Texans doctors.

Smith, Houston’s general manager, could have walked away from the deal and taken Brown back. Instead, he agreed to the contingency plan Schneider, Seattle’s GM who has consulted with Smith for years, proposed. The Seahawks got Brown and a fifth-round choice of Houston’s in 2018, and the Texans got a third-round pick in 2018 from Seattle plus a second-round choice in 2019.

Lane, 27, has started 19 games and played in 62 during his NFL career, all for Seattle. He’s been the Seahawks’ primary nickel back inside in recent seasons, and that role is why the team signed him to a four-year, $23 million extension before the 2016 season. He had a poor ’16 season in coverage and penalties.

He began this season as the starter at right cornerback, opposite Sherman. Then Lane got ejected early from the opener Sept. 10 at Green Bay for a pushing altercation with Packers receiver Davante Adams. On Oct. 1, after four starts, he strained his groin during the win against Indianapolis. Rookie Shaquill Griffin took Lane’s right-cornerback job, and Justin Coleman his nickel spot.

Now, Lane’s healthy—and Sherman’s immediate replacement.

The Seahawks have other options. Again, none are nearer to Sherman’s level of performance or reputation.

DeShawn Shead, the starting right cornerback, could be an option. Eventually. He remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list following reconstructive knee surgery in January and a follow-up procedure this summer.

The Seahawks have until a week from Tuesday, the day after week 11 of the NFL season ends, to decide whether Shead is healthy enough to practice. If that answer is yes before or by Nov. 21, Seattle has three weeks to either add him to active roster or put him on injured reserve for the rest of this season.

Byron Maxwell is available. Another former Seahawks starting cornerback opposite Sherman, Maxwell got released by Miami Oct. 24 and is a free agent. The 29-year old began his NFL career with Seattle the same season Sherman did, in 2011. He started 17 regular-season games and all six postseason ones for the Seahawks in the 2013 and ’14 seasons, including Super Bowl 48 and 49.

Then he signed a six-year, $63 million contract with Philadelphia before the 2015 season. That was the only one he played for the Eagles. He started 13 games for Miami last season and two this season before the Dolphins cut him.

At 6 feet 1, 198 pounds, Maxwell has the size and length the Seahawks like in cornerbacks, and he obviously knows Carroll’s step-kick technique off the line of scrimmage and coverage system many Seattle imports (remember Cary Williams?) can’t grasp. Expect the Seahawks to at least call—or to have already called—to see how Maxwell might be able to fit.

Sherman turns 30 before next season, the last one of his contract. His salary for 2018 is scheduled to be a non-guaranteed $11 million, with a $13.2 million salary-cap charge.

Any idea the Seahawks might offer Sherman another extension before next season is a more remote possibility with his injury. The Achilles tear also greatly reduced his and Seattle’s leverage for any trade, which the Seahawks so publicly entertained last offseason.

For now, the Seahawks seem more likely to welcome Sherman back for 2018 at his current pay, to offer the opportunity to earn the extension and be motivated for a strong rebound season–plus possible free agency riches in the spring of 2019 at age 31.

And for now, there’s gaping hole on the left side of the Seahawks’ defense that hasn’t been there since 2010. One that Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons will be spending all this week preparing to target next Monday night.


The Rams smacked Houston at home 33-7 on Sunday, keeping Los Angeles (7-2) one game ahead of the Seahawks atop the division.

The Rams have won six of their last seven games. The one loss was last month to Seattle.

The Seahawks are currently the fifth seed in the NFC playoff picture, ahead on tiebreakers of Carolina (6-3) with seven games remaining in the regular season.. The top six in the conference make the postseason.

The Indianapolis Colts will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10 in their final game before the bye week. The game time is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 12, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The contest will mark the 24th all-time regular season meeting between the teams, with Pittsburgh leading the series, 17-6.

Last week, the Colts faced the Texans in Houston and were victorious, 20-14.

Indianapolis jumped out to an early 10-0 lead after quarterback Jacoby Brissett threw a 45-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (five receptions for 175 yards and two touchdowns) and kicker Adam Vinatieri converted a field goal.

Houston scored their first points of the game on a fumble return for a touchdown, and the Colts entered halftime with a 10-7 lead.

At the end of the third quarter Brissett and Hilton connected again for an 80-yard touchdown. Vinatieri then made a 53 yard field goal to give Indianapolis a 20-7 advantage in the fourth quarter.

The Texans tallied a touchdown with 6:11 left in regulation. Houston then orchestrated a drive to the Colts’ seven-yard line. On fourth-andseven with two seconds left, outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard strip-sacked Houston quarterback Tom Savage and fellow outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo recovered the ball to seal the win.

Cheap Tennessee Titans Jersey Wholesale From China

Kevin Byard

Kevin Byard

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans received a lot of hype this offseason because of their offensive firepower, but they’ve won recently because of their prowess on the other side of the ball. It’s time to give our full respect to the Titans defense and their emerging star, safety Kevin Byard, after their 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

“We all know how good we are on this side of the ball,” Byard said leading up to the game. “We just have got to be consistent.”

They were Sunday, holding the Ravens’ eighth-ranked rushing attack to just 73 yards on 22 carries. They came up with a big fourth-down stop by linebacker Wesley Woodyard, and Byard stepped up with two huge interceptions. Baltimore’s final touchdown came when the Titans played softer coverage as they protected their double-digit lead.

The Titans shook off many of their offensive cobwebs in the first half, scoring two touchdowns with a mix of play-action, stellar individual plays and much better red zone efficiency. In the second half, the Titans offense returned to some stagnant play until its final touchdown. Tennessee also was 3-for-3 in the red zone.

Marcus Mariota had an OK day, going 19-of-28 for 219 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The run game struggled as DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry combined for 47 yards on 17 carries. But they made some timely plays and got the win. There still are problems to solve, but the defense isn’t one of them, at least for now. Coming in, the Titans defense had allowed just 33 points and two touchdowns over their past three games.

What it means: The Titans are 5-3, tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for first place in the AFC South. They’re on pace to finish 10-6, which likely would put them in the playoffs. The offensive problems are troublesome, but the Titans are on a three-game winning streak and have shown an ability to win close, ugly games.

What I liked: The follow-up performance of Byard to bring in two interceptions after getting a heavy dose of positive attention over the past two weeks because of his three-interception game against the Cleveland Browns. I wrote last week that Byard was on the way to being a household name. Sunday only solidified that and now he leads the NFL with six interceptions. He has five interceptions in the past two games, which is tied with four others for most by a player in consecutive games since 1970.

“I hope I can keep doing things that Ed Reed didn’t do,” Byard said, giving love to one of his childhood football idols. “If I can do that, I’ll be on my way.”

Logan Ryan should get most of the credit for the first interception, as he had a great pass breakup and assist to Byard on a deep Joe Flacco pass, but Byard read it perfectly and made the play on his second pick. Ryan, who expected a bunch of Ravens deep shots, said he recognized the play that led to the first interception as the same play as one he defended well against Breshad Perriman earlier in the game.

It was a plus to see the Titans go 3-for-3 in the red zone. I also really liked the Titans’ last touchdown, which capped a much-needed drive that featured big plays from Murray, Delanie Walker and an Eric Decker TD.

What I didn’t like: The Titans offense in the second half, for the most part, reminded me of the struggles and inconsistency that it showed during their first seven games. Tennessee has to get more push up front in the running game. Murray and Henry were hit in the backfield on a regular basis. The Titans only went 6-of-16 on third downs.

Fantasy fallout: It was a dud fantasy day for Murray and Corey Davis. Murray (nine carries, 19 yards) was banged up with injuries most of the day. Davis was targeted five times, but there may have been a bit of rust as he had just two catches for 28 yards. Rishard Matthews rewarded fantasy owners who stuck with him by putting up four catches for 70 yards and a touchdown.

Tough guy performance: Walker battled the pain of a right ankle bone bruise throughout the week, but gutted it out to play and performed as he typically does. Walker finished with five catches for 71 yards. Mariota commended Walker’s bravery for playing through that injury.

What’s next: The Titans host the 3-5 Cincinnati Bengals, who are coming off a 23-7 loss to a Jacksonville Jaguars team without Leonard Fournette. It’s another game the Titans should be favored in.

Cheap Kansas City Chiefs Jersey Wholesale From China For Sale

The 6-2 Kansas City Chiefs travel to AT&T Stadium on Sunday to take on the 4-3 Dallas Cowboys.

The line is a pick’em, which means neither team is favored, while the Over-Under is 51.5 points, up sharply from an open of 48.5. Uncertainty around the availability of Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has led to wild odds swings already.

Before you make any bets on Chiefs-Cowboys, you’ll want to see what SportsLine’s advanced computer model is picking.

It’s been crushing football. The model went an amazing 174-80-2 on straight-up NFL picks last season — better than all 98 experts tracked by NFLPickWatch. SportsLine computer picks also would have won over 96 percent of CBS Sports Office Pool Manager leagues that made straight-up picks last season.

The model is fresh off a 12-1 straight-up week. It called every game correctly, including the Bills stomping the Raiders and these same Cowboys beating the Redskins.

Now, the model has examined every match-up, every player, and every trend in Cowboys-Chiefs and locked in picks on the side and Over-Under.

The model knows the Cowboys may be without Elliott, who is third in the NFL with 690 rushing yards. It’s a big blow to an offense that ranks fifth with 28.3 points per game. And even if Zeke does play, missed practice time and legal distractions could hurt his productivity.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, meanwhile, is coming off a clunker against the division-rival Redskins. Although the Cowboys won, Prescott was held below 150 yards passing and didn’t throw a TD.

But just because the Cowboys could struggle offensively doesn’t mean they won’t beat the Chiefs, especially at home.

SportsLine’s model says if Elliott does sit, Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden will combine to rumble for over 100 yards and a TD.

And Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt has had issues of his own lately. He hasn’t scored since Week 3 and has been held under 100 yards each of the last three games. SportsLine’s projection model says he’ll make it four in a row against Dallas and will only rush for 80 yards.

We can tell you the model is loving Under 51.5. In fact, the Under hits in 60 percent of simulations.

But what about the side? The model says one team wins well over 50 percent of the time. And you can only go to SportsLine to see which one it is.

So what side of Chiefs-Cowboys should you take? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong winner of Chiefs-Cowboys, all from the model that crushed the NFL last week, and find out.
