The team had to stay over Friday night and didn’t land in Chicago until after 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon.

Logan Couture scored in the first period and added two assists to eclipse 400 career points, and Aaron Dell made 25 saves as San Jose blanked Ottawa 5-0 on Saturday night to hand the Senators their third shutout in four games.

The winter storm moving across the Eastern portion of the country this weekend created a travel nightmare for the Bulls following the win at Charlotte.

“We all got to the plane and thought we were going to get out of there (on Friday),” Hoiberg said. “It sounds like our pilot was on a commercial flight that ended up getting canceled. This morning, the same thing.”

Wentz threw 33 touchdown passes and for almost 3,300 yards this season, so there likely will be an adjustment in the Eagles’ attack. LeGarrette Blount is the team’s leading rusher with 696 yards but only two TDs. Jay Ajayi, acquired from the Dolphins, has rushed for 307 yards for Philly, only eight more than Wentz finished with this season.

“Their defense is very multiple and is good up front,” Littrell said. “They mix things up very well. They are very competitive in the back end and pose a great challenge for us. There is a reason they are ranked 11th in the country. Vic does a great job of putting those guys in position to be successful.”

Fine added that Troy is “good up front with physical players” and that the Trojans “play some funky coverages at times.”

The NFC playoff picture took center stage in Week 11.

There were two games between teams in the conference with winning records on Sunday, with another one set for Monday. The only such matchup in the AFC was Thursday when the Pittsburgh Steelers handled the Tennessee Titans, 40-17.

The New Orleans Saints coach told Tiki and Tierney on Sports radio that he plans to add a simple scrambler the pregame locker room to keep players off social media.However, Montreal would go shorthanded, because Price received a four-minute roughing penalty.Not on court yet.Cordy Glenn allowed just two sacks all , despite pass-blocking for a quarterback that holds the ball longer than any other QB the league .Strahan returned to the U.S.Purdue Home Runs – 1 , last vs.Talk about failing to pan out: is the epitome of that.

The Bulldogs have sent some big, talented, versatile defensive linemen to the NFL recent years.

That’s s— is nothing!

2009, as the recession raged, the Redmond City Council approved plans for a Costco warehouse on the site the company purchased this week.- Slater September 7 This is a bit concerning because there are a lot of questions at center for the Warriors.He could travel that crowd.Calgary’s penalty kill is also ranked last and allowed a power-play goal with 1 left the first.

The 49ers are 1-10 and have officially been eliminated from the playoffs. Now they will get a chance to see what Garoppolo can do — and whether they want to commit to him long-term after the season.

San Francisco’s offense has been hard to watch this season, but Garoppolo has the ability to breathe some life into this unit.

On Monday, November 20, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano told Zak Keefer of indystar.com that Brissett “should be OK.” Brissett took “the lion’s share” of snaps during Monday’s practice, and Pagano said he looked good. Even though Brissett was still in the concussion protocol, Pagano said the Colts “should be fine.”

Brissett was a full participant in each of the Colts’ practices this week, and the team can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The team doctor and neurologist medically cleared him, so he will line up under center against the Titans.

Carson Wentz magically threw a perfect 51-yard strike as he was falling down

Carson Wentz finds some way to pull off some magical play every single week, it seems. In the Eagles’ Sunday Night Football matchup against the Seahawks, it was this 51-yard bomb to Nelson Agholor.

He did it again versus the Bears, when he escaped on third-and-9 for an 18-yard gain.

It probably won’t make a difference in the outcome of this one. The Seahawks added another touchdown to take back a two-score lead. But it sure is fun to see Wentz magically extending plays.

The Chiefs have been locked in a battle with the Jets on Sunday in East Rutherford, and Marcus Peters eventually had enough.

After a Josh McCown rushing touchdown, a defensive holding was called on Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson, and Peters took the official’s penalty flag and threw it into the stands:

Peters was then called for unsportsmanlike conduct for the flag toss, which landed in the stands much to the amusement of a lucky fan:

The Jets went for two after the touchdown, and converted to make it a 38-31 game with just over two minutes to go.

The most impressive prospect for each NHL team at the quarter mark

Now that we’re at the quarter mark of the NHL season, or at least most teams are, there will be a lot of retrospectives on how things have gone so far at the NHL level. But how are things going beneath the surface with each team’s prospects?

Villanueva drew praise earlier this season when he emerged from the locker room and stood alone outside the tunnel during the national anthem before the Steelers’ Week 3 game against the Bears, a surreal Sunday in which protests by players and executives around the NFL in response to President Donald Trump’s controversial comments made global headlines. Villanueva even had the best-selling jersey in the league after taking the stand.

“When guys get injured, that calls for the next man up,” McVay said. “And that’s what you see around the league. We have been fortunate in that manner, that we haven’t had a lot of guys miss games that have been in those starting roles. But it looks like that’s going to end up occurring.”

Trotz said that injury disclosure is just a traditional difference between the sports.

“It’s just been part of the culture [in the NHL],” Trotz said. “In the NFL, [disclosure] is part of their culture. Maybe we’ll catch up.”

Hitchcock believes it’s time that they do. “Our feeling is just tell [the public] what the injury is,” he said. “Let’s stop the dance.”

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson broke his right fibula late in the third quarter Sunday against the Saints and was carted off the field.

Lockhart acknowledged that the league was aware of the Cowboys owner’s threat to sue but to the spokesman’s knowledge no lawsuit has been formally filed.

Cavaliers: When he left to get stitched up, James only had eight points and his streak of double-digit games appeared in jeopardy. But he scored on a layup in the third, giving him 809 straight regular-season games with at least 10 points.

“We have been pretty consistent after our opening two losses,” Maurice said. “We have had a couple that we did not like, but every team has that. We have been resilient in games as well.”

Hellebuyck, who has a 12-2-2 record with a 2.45 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage, wrested the starting job away from Steve Mason, who was signed to an $8.2 million, two-year free agent contract in the offseason.

It has been a turkey of a November for Los Angeles, who own a 2-5-1 record in their past eight games after a strong and unexpected 10-2-1 start.

Elliott sat out his first of six games this past Sunday against the Falcons after the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for an emergency injunction at a hearing Thursday in New York.

A series of injunctions and restraining orders had allowed Elliott, 22, to play before Sunday, but a three-judge panel decided another injunction wasn’t in the cards for the Cowboys running back.

Elliott is eligible to return for a Dec. 24 matchup with the Seahawks in Dallas. The Cowboys (5-4) have turned to Alfred Morris, Rob Smith and Darren McFadden in Elliott’s absence.

OTL’s assertion was part of a long report that confirmed the New York Times’ story on Jones’ threats to sue the NFL and his fellow owners over ongoing negotiations on the commissioner’s new contract.

Pacers run away after halftime, beat Heat 120-95

“I think you want to protect the player a little bit. Players in the league will target certain parts of the body,” he said.

But Hitchcock refuted that notion. “The players don’t go out and say: ‘He has a broken left pinkie and we’re going to go after that ‘pinkie.’ Nobody thinks like that,” he said.

The NHL’s policy is in stark contrast with that of another contact sport, the National Football League. The NFL “requires that teams provide credible, accurate and specific information about injured players to the league office, their opponents, local and national media, and the league’s broadcast partners each week during the regular season and postseason.”

Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks blasted the NFL’s injury disclosure policy in September, saying it was specifically tailored to benefit those gambling on games.

The All-Star point guard took some contact during a rigorous workout at the team’s morning shootaround. Thomas has been ramping up his activity, running harder and appears to be ahead of schedule to make his debut with Cleveland. Originally, the Cavs forecast he would be playing in games by the end of December but there’s a sense it could be sooner.

“We know he’s making progress every day, which is good for us,” Lue said. “We’re excited about that. We want to make sure we do what’s best for him health-wise, not coming back too soon.”

Ben Simmons had a career-high 27 points and 10 rebounds, a fired-up Embiid added 15 points and 11 rebounds despite a sore knee, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the cold-shooting Utah Jazz 107-86 on Monday night.

The injury-prone Embiid skipped the morning shootaround because of pain his surgically-repaired left knee. But he posted his seventh double-double and got under Utah’s skin at a decisive time in the fourth quarter.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger reaches career milestones

Ben Roethlisberger added another milestone to his Hall of Fame career.

A 3-yard completion to tight end Jesse James in the second quarter of Thursday’s 40-17 win over the Titans gave the Steelers quarterback 4,000 completions for his career. Roethlisberger is the ninth quarterback in NFL history with at least 4,000 completions.

The Steelers selected Roethlisberger with the 11th overall pick of the 2004 NFL Draft. The former Miami University quarterback was the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2004 and has won a pair of Super Bowls while leading the Steelers to another title game. The five-time Pro Bowler has thrown for 49,411 yards and 317 touchdowns with 170 interceptions. He’s also rushed for another 1,209 yards and 16 scores over his 14-year career.

Roethlisberger, Giants quarterback Eli Manning (4,287 completions), the top pick in the 2004 draft, and Rivers (4,005 completions), fourth overall in 2004, are the only quarterback trio from the same draft class with 4,000 career completions.

NFL concussion policy requires a player to be cleared by a team physician and an independent neurological consultant before returning to a game or practice if there’s any sign of concussion symptoms.

The Seahawks eventually punted on the drive and Wilson spent time under an examination tent meant for concussion testing before playing the next series.

The Seahawks are subject to league discipline if the concussion protocol isn’t followed properly.

Wilson told reporters after the game he was fine after the hit and only stayed on the ground because he thought his jaw might be stuck.

“I think I was kind of like laying down on the ground for a second just trying to get my jaw,” Wilson said, “and I think Walt thought maybe I was injured or something like that. I told him I was good, I was good, and he said, ‘Come off the field.’
