Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, is no stranger to comebacks.Authentic Kenny Golladay Jersey, the winner of Pro Football Weekly’s 2017 Comeback Player of the Year Award,
Allen entered 2017, in search of his first 16-game season. His 2016 was halted after just 27 offensive snaps by a torn right ACL. Authentic Marvin Jones Jr JerseyHe lacerated his kidney in the eighth game of the 2015 campaign, his fifth year in the league, when he was on track to threaten Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison’s NFL record 143 receptions.Authentic Brad Kaaya Jersey
And Allen entered the league in 2013 as a third-round rookie out of Cal, and he nearly quit football, where his junior season was cut short by a knee injury. Allen’s ascent up his first NFL depth chart wasn’t instantaneous, he said, after he was the Chargers’ only healthy skill player not to play a snap in his NFL debut.Authentic Michael Roberts Jersey
Rather than quit, then, Allen went on to rewrite the franchise’s rookie receiving records en route to being named PFWA's Rookie of the Year. It’s no wonder, that he again responded from last year’s knee injury by reaching new heights.,womens Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey

but their playoff hopes continue to flicker,womens Matthew Stafford JerseyThe Chargers are longshots to reach the Super Bowl, in part because of the fire that still burns in Gates.

" Gates said,"I'm used to being in a position where those guys are 6-9, "so it gives me a kind of an edge at that point."
It was Gates' 114th career receiving touchdown, and it marked the 87th time Rivers and Gates connected for a score, an NFL record for tight ends, a record for a quarterback/tight end duo. Next on the list is New England's Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, who have combined for 75 touchdowns.womens Darius Slay Jr Jersey,

After his touchdown,Gates raised his hands outward and looked toward the Chargers' sideline as if to say,womens Carlos Henderson Jersey, "I can still do this."
"I wasn't sure how they were going to play it,and I always try and make everything look the same,Authentic Jake Butt JerseyGates said. "I was playing against a guy in Johnson that's pretty smart,Authentic Paxton Lynch Jersey so it's a chess match. I made it look like it was my normal pivot, and that's why you could see the separation and by that time it was too late."
The challenge for Gates,[url=http://www.broncoscheapauthenticstore.com/adam-gotsis-jersey-cheap']Authentic Adam Gotsis Jersey[/url], 37, has been dealing with a reduced role during the second half of the season -- something hard to stomach at first for this future Hall of Famer. Through 14 games, Gates has 20 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns. He hasn't posted numbers that low since his rookie season in 2003.Authentic Carlos Henderson Jersey,
"I think the natural thing being a human in general -- it's got nothing to do with sports - - is just feeling like you can do more," Gates said. "I try not to get caught up in my own ego or my own pride, and just try and be able to deliver when my number is called. Because I think sometimes you get so caught up in being frustrated that when your number is called, you wouldn't be in a position to contribute.Authentic Demarcus Walker Jersey
"I've been in this situation my whole career in life where I was the guy, and I've always heard guys complain about playing time and not getting the ball. And I think that helped me gain an understanding because I was always in a position to where I could display my ability, ever since I was a kid.

Gates has been targeted just 37 times and is averaging 25 snaps a game. Hunter Henry has taken over the role as the Chargers' No. 1 tight end. Sean McGrath serves as the run-blocking tight end and recent acquisition Jeff Cumberland also has been used in two- and three-tight end sets because of his speed and athleticism.womens Chad Kelly Jersey
Gates is in the final year of a two-year deal that pays him $6 million this season. Gates hasn't said whether this, his 15th NFL seasonwill be his last womens Adam Gotsis Jersey, but retirement appears a distinct possibility.

what’s really made LDT so interesting to me is that, as far as I can tell, he is living out fans’ dreams of player progression in a way that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before.Authentic Austin Hooper Jersey,However,
he was so abysmally bad during preseason against second and third stringers that it didn’t look like he could possibly be a guy who could one day contribute. In LDT’s second season he improved enough to play his way onto the field,Let me explain. In LDT’s rookie season, but was a subpar starter (I reviewed his film that season here). In LDT’s third season he went from being a liability as a starter to a good right guard who contributed to the Chiefs’ success (I reviewed his film THAT season here).Authentic Patrick Peterson Jersey[
So, LDT went from horrific backup,womens Takkarist McKinley Jersey,womens Jalen Collins Jersey and that number will only get lower over time).womens Keanu Neal Jersey, to bad starter, to good starter, in the span of three years. He signed a contract last year that paid $8.5 million a year, which raised some eyebrows. But seeing the rapid improvement he made year by year, to recap,, it made a lot more sense. I wrote after last season that even if LDT didn’t improve one bit from here on out, the contract would be worth it (he is now the 11th highest paid guard in the NFL,

the Chiefs played one of the very best defensive lines in the NFL in the Philadelphia Eagles.Authentic Jalen Collins Jersey Not only are they very talented at the top, led by Fletcher Cox (who is an absolute monster and who just happens to play where LDT would be matched up against him most of the day), but they run deep and have guys who could start on multiple teams rotating in 5-6 deep.womens Austin Hooper Jersey,On Sunday,
So the film we go. As always, neutral plays, and pressures/hits/sacks allowed.womens Deion Jones Jersey If you’ve read these in the past, you know the number that REALLY matters is loss percentage, and I want that below 10 percent (the lower, the better, obviously). If a guy wants to be elite, I reviewed every snap (including plays called off by penalties) and charted wins/losses as both a pass and a run blocker,womens Larry Fitzgerald Jersey, he should also have a good win percentage, which for an offensive lineman would be somewhere over 30 percent but can really vary depending on what a guard is asked to do (most plays are neutrals).,

Fans of the Kansas City Chiefs got their first trailer for the Patrick Mahomes era in Denver today. We’ll still have to see the feature film to know for sure,womens Thomas Morstead Jersey, but the trailer sure looks like this could be a summer blockbuster.
Mahomes became the first Chiefs drafted quarterback to win a game for the Chiefs since 1987. To put that in perspective,womens Zach Strief Jersey the last time the Chiefs won a game started by a quarterback they drafted, the U.S.S.R. was still around. The last time this happened, Andy Reid was the offensive line coach at the University of Texas-El Paso and Clark Hunt was a college student at Southern Methodist. So without even talking about how he played, Mahomes has already made history in K.C.womens Josh Hill Jersey<
In reality Mahomes had a good game,womens Michael Hoomanawanui Jersey not great or horrible but a good solid game. He started out a little over excited as he was off target with a handful of his first throws. It was obvious that he was over amped and was putting to much fire into his throws. The interception he had was a perfect example of this as he fired a bullet high and right into the hands of the safety. After that interception he appeared to settle down though and he was on target for the rest of the game.'Authentic Zach Strief Jersey,'
His career got started off right as his first completion showed what he can do. On third and ten Mahomes threw a lazer beam 24 yards to Demetrius Harris. The ball was perfectly placed between a trailing linebacker and the safety. Harris alertly realized he wasn’t touched and got up and ran for an additional 20 yards. Just one completion into his career it showed his arm strength,Authentic Josh Hill Jersey accuracy and guts to throw into double coverage and not settle for a check down.'womens Kenny Vaccaro Jersey,
One of his best throws of the game came in the first quarter when he completed a third and long pass to Albert Wilson with a defender wrapped around his legs. The throw was perfectly located and a dart that showed how strong his arm is as he couldn’t step into the throw. The Chiefs were also backed up to their own ten yard line and Mahomes didn’t panic or get scared as he kept his eyes down field even as a defender was wrapped around his legs.
It wasn’t all roses as Mahomes did have some mistakes in the game. On the final drive of the game,Authentic Kenny Vaccaro Jersey, it won’t stand thanks to the penalty, his deep throw out of bounds when the Chiefs had a free play was bad. That throw has to be in bounds to give his guy a chance on a ball with which is nothing to lose. Even if it gets picked, so you keep it in bounds and give your receiver a chance to either make a play on the ball or draw a pass interference penalty.womens Will Lutz Jersey
However, the game went about as well as fans could have expected. He was under pressure often in the game but never looked panicked. Whether he rolled out or stepped up in the pocket, his eyes were focused down the field and he was making good decisions even if the play didn’t work. That is one of the major flaws of Alex Smith is that he gets happy feet and his eyes drop when he’s under pressure. Mahomes didn’t show that tendency.womens Coby Fleener Jersey,
The other thing I liked to see was he didn’t force it much. The only bad forced throw he really had was the deep jump ball he threw to Demetrius Harris on the last drive. It wasn’t the worst decision ever because he threw it up to the tallest guy on the field and, you have to assume at worst he’ll knock it down. But with the game on the line and plenty of time left,<, with that,Authentic Michael Hoomanawanui Jersey, you don’t want to see that kind of risk taken very often.Authentic Max Unger Jersey
So after one game Chiefs fans have a reason to be excited for next year. This game should put an end to the insane talk of bring Smith back next season. He’s shown that on the road against a top five defense,womens Max Unger Jersey,, in the cold with backups he never looked over matched. He wasn’t perfect or even great by any means,,' Authentic Cam Fowler jersey but he showed the poise and tools to be the dream quarterback fans have wanted for 50 years. It’s safe to say he lived up to the hype and didn’t disappoint.
In the micro,Authentic Jason McCourty Jersey, Wilson found himself trailing a play that started when Chris Jones sacked and stripped Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch. The ball bounded away past a couple of players but not Wilson who scooped an scored from 11 yards to help the Chiefs end the regular season with a 27-24 victory over the Denver Broncos.womens Kevin Zeitler Jersey
“Anything to help contribute, I’m all for it,” Wilson said. “We had great pressure by Chris. I saw it and went for it. I had to capitalize.”Wilson had the second touchdown of a three-year NFL career in which he was a starter for most of 2016 but had recorded only 60 defensive snaps on this season before Sunday.womens JC Tretter Jersey,
But with the Chiefs locked into their playoff spot, the finale was going to bring opportunity to Wilson and many others on the second and third lines of the depth chart. Hints of what was to come came when the Chiefs’ inactive list was announced some 90 minutes before kickoff.Authentic Seth DeValve Jersey
On defense, none of the regulars started. Jones, cornerback Steven Nelson and one or two other regulars pitched in more than expected because of injuries.Authentic JC Tretter Jersey,

The Chiefs came up with three takeaways and recorded five sacks, womens Jamie Collins Jersey,two by Kpassagnon and one each by Eligwe and Reaser, in addition to Jones’ big play. The defensive side of the postgame locker room celebrated loudly, but Wilson seemed content with a more subdued approach.womens Seth DeValve Jersey

,When the Chiefs claimed Bryan Witzmann off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys 14 months ago, at worst, they did so with the belief that he could be, a developmental swing tackle.womens Corey Linsley Jersey
So Witzmann spent all year as a backup at tackle, he did enough to pique the Chiefs’ interest in his ability to play other positions, getting most of his reps at both the left tackle and right tackle positions. Along the way, specifically inside.womens Jabaal Sheard Jersey
So when the Chiefs’ asked him to switch to left guard in the spring, the 27-year-old Witzmann –– who had bounced around with the Texans, and started giving him first-string reps there, Saints and Cowboys before landing with the Chiefs –– knew he’d better embrace the opportunity to finally earn a starting job.womens Jack Mewhort Jersey
it was an adjustment initially in OTAs and the beginning of training camp,“Obviously never playing guard,” Witzmann said.womens Nick Perry Jersey
Yet, earning every possible offensive snap this year.womens Morgan Burnett Jersey, on an offensive line that has seen its share of injuries –– both center Mitch Morse and right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif have missed games –– Witzmann has been a consistent presence at guard,
and hold on to the job,He’s managed to do this, despite the fact Parker Ehinger –– a fourth-round pick a year ago who started at the position until he suffered a season-ending knee injury last March –– has been practicing since early September.Authentic Jabaal Sheard Jersey
Offensive coordinator Matt Nagy said the coaching staff has come to appreciate Witzmann’s toughness, size and strength over the season’s first eight games.womens Mason Crosby Jersey
Though he’s athletic enough to be useful on zone runs and as a puller,Authentic Jack Mewhort Jersey, 7 inches and 320 pounds, Witzmann has enjoyed the close-quarters play at guard. At 6 feet, he’s big enough to be a good option on man/gap plays, which require doubles at the point of the attack.
,A teaching moment for Witzmann came on Oct. 15, whose three down linemen –– Stephon Tuitt, when he surrendered five quarterback hurries (according to Pro Football Focus) in a 19-13 loss to the Steelers, Javon Hargrave and Cam Heyward –– had their way with the Chiefs up front.womens David Bakhtiari Jersey
,“He was thrown right into the mix as a starter,” Nagy said. “I know this –– some of the fronts we’ve seen in the past eight weeks have been dominant, so there’s going to be some challenges you have, they’ve been tough.Authentic David Bakhtiari Jersey
The Steelers game taught Witzmann a lot about the importance of hand placement and initial strike in pass protection. He’s also been working on his awareness in blitz pickup from second- and third-level players, not to mention footwork.Authentic Nick Perry Jersey
,“At this level, precise things, it’s all about those little,” Witzmann said. “You’re going against a different type of defender (inside). The guys on the edge are a lot more speed. These guys inside are a lot more power. It’s just a different approach you take.”Authentic Morgan Burnett Jersey
”,His diligence in trying to improve paid off the next week, when he turned in his second clean sheet in pass protection in the Chiefs’ 31-30 loss to Oakland by failing to yield a single pressure or sack, however, according to PFF.Authentic John Simon Jersey
And on Sunday, the Cowboys, he will try to post another clean performance when the Chiefs face his old team, at 3:25 p.m. at AT&T Stadium.Authentic Donte Moncrief Jersey

The Denver Broncos are writing the closing chapter on a lost season.
The AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs, locked into the conference’s No. 4 playoff seed,womens Blake Martinez Jersey, are doing what they can to get through the Sunday regular-season finale unscathed in hopes of putting themselves in the best possible position for a deep postseason run.
Those divergent themes were evident in the teams’ respective decisions on a starting quarterback. The Chiefs (9-6) will rest Alex Smith and will start his backup, rookie Patrick Mahomes II.
Denver (5-10) is slated to start Paxton Lynch, who hasn’t played since sustaining an ankle injury in his first start of the season, Nov. 26 against the Oakland Raiders.
The Chiefs traded up to draft Mahomes with the 10th overall pick this year, though he has yet to take a snap in a game. Besides trying to safeguard Smith in advance of the playoffs, and he has served as Smith’s backup throughout this season, Kansas City coach Andy Reid said he believed it was important to take advantage of the opportunity to get Mahomes some snaps in a game.
“We’re in a position where we can do that, the Broncos are a good football team,” Reid said. “It gives the kid some experience. That’s the reason. Listen, real good defense. It’ll be a great experience for him to go against that crew.”womens Jake Ryan Jersey,'
Mahomes will become the first rookie quarterback to start for the Chiefs in a non-strike game since 1979, when Steve Fuller did it. Mahomes said he is anxious to finish out the regular season on a positive note.Authentic Kentrell Brice Jersey,
“The biggest thing for me is just to expect to go out there and win in any way possible,womens Davon House Jersey Mahomes said.
Reid is considering resting other starters, or limiting their playwomens Jahri Evans Jersey, on both sides of the ball, but he did not expect to make final decisions on the positions involved until later in the week.
Lynch, is a former first-round pick whose playing opportunities have been limited by injuries. He is among three players who have started at quarterback for the Broncos this season. The others are Brock Osweiler and Trevor Siemian, a second-year pro,Authentic Blake Martinez Jersey who is finishing the season on injured reserve because of a shoulder injury.
None of the three established himself as the future Broncos’ starter, and the quality of quarterback play has been a glaring issue for Denver throughout a desultory offensive campaign. Lynch,Authentic Davante Adams Jersey,'
womens Lane Taylor Jerseya>, has never had a sustained opportunity to play, though, and seeing him perform in an otherwise meaningless finale can provide general manager John Elway and other members of the Broncos brass something of a yardstick as they move into the offseason intent on resolving Denver’s quarterback shortcomings.

Sure the Chiefs’ front office believed in him, sometimes view them as threats instead of teammates.womens Bennie Logan Jersey, and that meant a lot. But Ragland, protective of their jobs, knew that in certain NFL locker rooms, a second-year pro from Alabama, young players aren’t necessarily embraced: veterans
” Ragland said.womens Demetrius Harris Jersey,“Coming out of college, or not trying to help them, you heard stories about cats being mean to the younger guys

But no one knew at the time that Johnson would play such a role, who plays Johnson’s “Will” position — and Johnson might’ve wondered if Ragland’s arrival meant he would be phased out sooner than later despite being the team’s all-time leader in tackles., least of all Johnson. The Chiefs had already traded for another inside linebacker — Kevin Pierre-Louis
however,Johnson, isn’t a jealous sort. It simply isn’t his way to be stingy with the vast football knowledge he’s accumulated over the past 13 seasons.Authentic Bennie Logan Jersey.
So when Ragland — whose strong football character was a primary reason general manager Brett Veach dealt a 2019 fourth-round pick to acquire him — first introduced himself, whatever awkwardness that could’ve otherwise existed between the two never took root.womens Marcus Peters Jersey
a friendship blossomed. A shared interest in movies helped. In fact,Instead, it was a quote from one of their favorite films — the 1995 film “Friday” — that let them know they were essentially kindred spirits.
” Ragland said. “I love to quote movies. I was saying something from “Friday,“I’m always quoting a movie — that’s my thing,” and he chimed in on it and finished my sentence. And then we just fell out laughing.
“Ever since then, we’ve been clicking.”
Johnson laughs at the memory, calling Ragland the kind of film buff that keeps you on your toes.

The Dolphins’ punting competition is going down to the wire thanks to a left-footed rookie who actually isn’t a lefty.womens Nick Boyle Jersey
Matt Haack, undrafted out of Arizona State, is challenging third-year veteran Matt Darr. With only Thursday’s preseason finale at Minnesota remaining before Saturday’s cut-down day, creating a reverse spin that can be tricky to field.womens Benjamin Watson Jersey, Haack has an edge in statistics and also may have what’s considered an edge in that he punts with his left foot,
The strange part: It’s the only thing Haack does as a lefty. He writes right-handed. Bats, throws and eats righty, too.womens Brandon Carr Jersey
Haack is averaging 46.5 yards on 10 punts in preseason with a 43.7 net average and a long of 63. Darr is averaging 43.2 with a 33.0 net and a long of 52. But those numbers are skewed because Darr has five punts inside the 20 and Haack two.
“It’s competitive,” coach Adam Gase said. “It’s good to see both those guys hitting the ball the way they have been. In practice, we get a lot more looks, we’ve seen both guys really hit some really good ones. We’re just going to keep letting those guys compete until the end.”, and (it is) very competitive.
