Atlanta Falcons

LOS ANGELES — The Atlanta Falcons know they must win three consecutive road games to have a chance at Super Bowl redemption.

They have already nabbed the first victory, though, spoiling a festive night at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and they seem quite confident about their chances to run the table in other people’s stadiums on the way to Minneapolis.

Matt Ryan passed for 218 yards and connected with Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:48 to play as last season’s NFC champions advanced from the wild-card round with a 26-13 victory over the upstart Rams on Saturday night. Devonta Freeman rushed for an early score and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals for the Falcons (11-6), the NFC’s No. 6 seed this year.

Atlanta went only 5-3 on the road in the regular season. Judging from a comprehensively solid showing against the hungry Rams (11-6), however, a tough division race in the NFC South this season and last season’s deep playoff run prepared the Falcons for the grind necessary to win back-to-back conference titles.

“We don’t care where we play these games, because we know it’s about us, not the crowd or the opponent,” Atlanta safety Ricardo Allen said.

The next place they’re headed is Philadelphia. The Falcons advanced to face the top-seeded Eagles this Saturday.

“Doesn’t matter where we’re going; we’re going,” Ryan said. “And that’s the most exciting part.”

Atlanta’s journey to the Super Bowl last season ended infamously with that blown 28-3 lead against New England and a double-overtime defeat. In their first playoff game since, the Falcons spoiled the Rams’ first postseason matchup in 13 years with a methodical performance derived from hard-earned experience.

Jones caught nine passes for 94 yards for Atlanta, which never trailed and won playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Falcons’ defense held the NFL’s highest-scoring offense to one touchdown while muzzling running back Todd Gurley and harassing quarterback Jared Goff, who went 24-for-45 in his playoff debut.

The Rams had just six players on their roster with prior postseason appearances.

“I think having gone through these situations, understanding what it’s like, the atmosphere, those kinds of things, knowing that it’s going to be tough, all those things kind of carry forward,” Ryan said. “But at the end of the day, experience or no experience, you’ve got to execute.”

A raucous crowd of 74,300 packed the Coliseum on a crisp evening for the first NFL playoff game in the nation’s second-largest city since January 1994. Los Angeles went 21 years without pro football before the Rams returned from St. Louis last season, and in 2017 the franchise emphatically ended a 13-year streak of nonwinning seasons with an inspiring run to its first division title since 2003.

Rams wide receiver Robert Woods caught nine passes for 142 yards, but rookie Cooper Kupp scored their only touchdown late in the first half. Pro Bowl kick returner Pharoh Cooper muffed a punt and fumbled a kickoff return early, leading to 10 points for the Falcons.

Atlanta dominated by controlling the ball for 37:35, patiently running it with Freeman and Tevin Coleman. The Rams’ defense simply couldn’t get off the field in the third quarter, whether due to missed tackles or clever calls by the Falcons.

“You see why the Falcons are the defending NFC champs,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “Certainly this is a humbling game. This is an experience that we can learn from. But I don’t think this game was too big for our guys.”

Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott

ARLINGTON, Texas — Running back Ezekiel Elliott returned Sunday, but the Dallas Cowboys’ season ended anyway.

The Cowboys lost to the Seattle Seahawks 21-12, bringing to a close any playoff possibilities with their Week 17 finale against the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday left to play.

“It’s really disappointing,” tight end Jason Witten said. “We had a chance and fought there at the end. It’s not overly complicated. Opportunities in this league are fleeting. You have to take advantage of them when you can. We just weren’t able to do that well enough.”

Sunday started well enough for the Cowboys, with the Detroit Lions losing to the Cincinnati Bengals and the Atlanta Falcons losing to the New Orleans Saints. It could have been made even better if not for the Carolina Panthers’ last-minute victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But all of it meant nothing because the Dallas offense failed to score a touchdown for the fourth time this season. Quarterback Dak Prescott was intercepted twice and saw a pick returned for a touchdown for the fourth time this season when Justin Coleman came away with an errant dump-off to Elliott on the Cowboys’ second play of the second half.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant, meanwhile, had perhaps his lowest moment with the Cowboys (8-7), dropping a first-quarter pass, fumbling a second-quarter reception and dropping a third-quarter dump-down.

Bryant’s fumble was turned into Seattle’s first touchdown, and his drop in the third quarter led to the Seahawks’ third. In the first half, two special-teams penalties negated great field position, and a Geoff Swaim crackback penalty turned a third-and-2 into third-and-15, forcing the Cowboys to take a Dan Bailey field goal.

The Cowboys did what they wanted to do running the ball. Elliott finished with 97 yards on 24 carries in his first game since Nov. 5 because of a six-game suspension.

But they have only themselves to blame for not going to him more.

Dallas’ most egregious error came in the fourth quarter. Trailing by 9 points, the Cowboys were at the Seattle 3 with less than eight minutes to play. With the entire AT&T Stadium crowd crying for an Elliott handoff, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan instead called a pass that resulted in Prescott scrambling for 1 yard. On second-and-goal, Linehan called for Prescott to sprint out to the right, eschewing Elliott once again, and Witten was called for holding.

Prescott was sacked for an 11-yard loss on the next snap, and the Cowboys were ultimately forced to settle for another Bailey field-goal attempt from 34 yards. For the first time since 2014, Bailey missed between 30-39 yards when he pushed his kick right.

Elliott’s seven rushing touchdowns were good enough to be tied for fifth in the NFL entering Week 16, despite missing six games. He had 15 rushing touchdowns as a rookie in 2016.

But Linehan failed to go to him when it mattered most.

After the game, Jason Garrett said Prescott had a run/pass option on first down and chose to go with the pass based on Seattle’s defense. “When you look back on those plays and they don’t work out, it’s very easy to do that,” Garrett said of the second-guessing. “Again, I think we are one of the better red zone teams in the league. Running the ball has been a part of it, the run/pass options have been a part of it and then throwing the ball. In that particular case, it didn’t work out well for us. … Obviously, Zeke is a very good player. We like him and we give him plenty of opportunities. In that particular case, it didn’t work out for us and that was a big part of the game.”

Elliott did not second-guess the playcalling. “They coach and I play,” he said.

That missed opportunity effectively ended the Cowboys’ chances of making the playoffs and ended their season, although Bailey missed another attempt with a minute to play that would have cut Seattle’s lead to 6 points.

There is one game left to play, but the ramifications will be for jobs on this team or another for players and coaches in 2018.

The Cowboys can look back at the Seattle loss as a crusher, but their season was put in a bind with Elliott’s suspension. The team’s losing streak in the first three games without their star running back effectively ended it. Sunday just made it final.

Cheap Baltimore Ravens Jersey Wholesale From China

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith, who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury Sunday, has been suspended four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Smith, the Ravens’ top cornerback, decided to drop his appeal and begin serving his suspension after tearing his Achilles in Sunday’s 44-20 victory over the Detroit Lions, the source told Schefter.

The Ravens are expected to place Smith on injured reserve this week. This puts a smudge on what had been Smith’s finest season in the NFL. He made three interceptions and led the Ravens with nine passes broken up.

The suspension will cost Smith a total of $182,352. Smith would have lost $2 million if he hadn’t restructured his deal in August.

Smith’s season ended in the second quarter Sunday, when he fell to the ground while trying to cover a deep route. He has been dealing with an Achilles injury for most of the season and rested it by practicing only once or twice a week.

Injuries have consistently hampered Smith’s career. He has only played two full 16-game seasons in seven years. Smith will have missed a total of 17 games over the past four seasons.

Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey will replace Smith in the starting lineup when Baltimore plays at AFC North-leading Pittsburgh this Sunday night.

If Smith didn’t go down with a significant injury, he might have missed the final four regular-season games anyway, depending on the outcome of the appeal. Smith would then have been eligible for the postseason if Baltimore made the playoffs.

The loss of Smith is a big hit to the Ravens (7-5), who control their playoff fate heading into the final four weeks of the regular season. Smith would’ve helped in covering the likes of Antonio Brown, Josh Gordon, T.Y. Hilton and A.J. Green.

Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey Wholesale From China

Pittsburgh Steelers

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 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.
