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.

Dallas Cowboys

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.

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.
