Color Rush Mike Williams Jersey
#1
For the second game in a row Youth Caleb Sturgis Jersey , Chargers fans had to sit and peak through their fingers as they watched their team gut-out a last second stand on defense inside CenturyLink Field.QB Philip Rivers must’ve beem feeling awfully generous as he chose to spread the wealth with RB Melvin Gordon and the wideout trio of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Tyrell Williams all getting in on the action.Thanks to a physical defense and defense that found it’s groove fairly early, the Chargers were able amass a lead they would never relinquish, no matter how hard Caleb Sturgis tried.Personally, this game felt just like the Titans game in that, although the team won, I did not feel as jolly as one would expect following a victory. The final score made it seem closer than it really was, while the kicking woes made it feel WAY closer than it was. Honestly, I’m just glad it’s over with so the team can focus on the on-fire garbage can that is the Oakland Raiders organization.I, for one, cannot wait.So let’s get to it. Here are this week’s players that SURGED forward with their play and those who found themselves staying STATIC following the week 9 victory.SurgeCB Desmond King IIJust like a caped-crusader, like the ones you only read about in the comics or see in the movies, Desmond King swooped in at just the right time to effectively save the day for the Chargers against the Seattle Seahawks.On a 1st-and-10 with just under seven minutes left in the game Jahleel Addae Jersey , QB Russell Wilson attempted an ill-advised pass to WR David Moore on the far sideline. Although King was tasked with covering the slot receiver to that side, he showed no hesitation as he read the quarterback’s eyes all the way. Just as Wilson cocked-back to throw, the former Jim Thorpe Award winner stuck his foot in the ground and pounced on the pass, securing it en route to a 42-yard interception return for a touchdown.It was King’s third interception on the year and arguably the biggest of his young career. n fact, by the end of the game, the turnover wound up being the difference in this one.Following the absolute tear that King has been on during these last three games, Pro Football Focus now has him as their highest-graded cornerback in the entire NFL with an “elite” mark of 90.4.WR Keenan AllenAt the half-way point of the season, many Chargers fans might think that Allen has found himself in the middle of some negative regression. While he may be on pace for less receiving yards and touchdowns, Allen is still right on track to cross that 1,000-yard threshold while also padding his stats with some rushing yards, for good measure.Against the Seahawks, Allen hauled in six of his team-high 10 targets for 124 yards, his first 100-yard game since week 1. He also added 28 yards on a pair of carries. In all, the receiver has averaged over 10 yards per carry with 74 yards on seven totes.For the year Authentic Dan Feeney Jersey , Allen’s 630 receiving yards are good for 17th in the NFL. His 47 catches are tied with Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans for 21st in the league.StaticK Caleb SturgisFor almost 24 hours, Chargers fans waited in fuming anticipation for the team to make any sort of announcement regarding the status of Sturgis and whether or not he would somehow get one more chance to prove his worth in the NFL.Luckily, oh so luckily, GM Tom Telesco and his staff finally made the right move as they gave Sturgis the boot, albeit a tad late if you were to ask anyone else.In a game that came down to the final play once again, the Chargers narrowly escaped following another gritty finish by the Bolts’ defense. However, if Sturgis would have made any ONE of his THREE missed kicks on Sunday, he could have save LA fans years on their lives.A big thank-you to Coach Lynn and staff for finally (?) making the right choice with this one.CB Trevor WilliamsBesides the kicker, Williams found himself as the only player to find themselves in Coach Lynn’s doghouse. The former UDFA, just a year removed from having a spectacular season, did not record a single defensive snap against the Seahawks. He did, however, see 21 snaps on special teams.In his place, Michael Davis got the start opposite Casey Hayward http://www.authenticlosangeleschargers.c...ser-jersey , showing that Williams’ lackluster play is finally acknowledged by the staff. Led by brash rookie QB Baker Mayfield, the Cleveland Browns suddenly merit keeping an eye on.Are they legitimate playoff contenders yet? Of course not; only their most ardent fans would say so.Still, the Browns 鈥?owners of just one victory over the previous two entire seasons combined 鈥?are a club that now matters, not just because they're capable of winning, as they did 35-20 against the falling-apart Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, but also because they have some real characters.First and foremost, of course, both on and off the field, is Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winner and No. 1 overall draft pick who helped the Browns (4-6-1) end a 25-game road losing skid that was one shy of the NFL record. After tossing four TD passes and zero interceptions, he made sure to get in his shots against his former head coach, Hue Jackson, who was fired by Cleveland less than a month ago and quickly took a job with the Bengals as a defensive assistant.Afterward, when they met on the field for a handshake Youth Michael Schofield Jersey , Mayfield resisted what appeared to be Jackson's attempt to bring him in for a hug. Then, speaking to reporters, Mayfield took what could only be construed as a jab at Jackson and the also-fired Todd Haley, the Browns' former offensive coordinator, saying: "We have people that we believe in calling the plays now."Wide-eyes emoji!"Didn't feel like talking," Mayfield said of his brief postgame interaction with Jackson. "Left Cleveland, goes down to Cincinnati. ... It's just somebody that was in our locker room asking us to play for him and then goes to a different team we play twice a year. Everybody can have their spin on it. But that's how I feel."There was more, too. When Browns safety Damarious Randall grabbed a pick in the first half, he ended up out of bounds on the Bengals' sideline and handed the ball right to Jackson. Hmmmm.With Mayfield joined on offense by dynamic running back Nick Chubb 鈥?the fourth rookie in league history with rushing and receiving touchdowns in consecutive games 鈥?and young talent such as Myles Garrett and Denzel Ward on defense, plus the sort of swagger Randall showed, it looks as if the Browns might no longer provide the must-not-see-TV they've offered for quite some time.In case you missed it, here are other top topics after the NFL season's 12th Sunday:FOSTER'S CASEThe most important takeaway from San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster's arrest on a domestic violence charge could be what, if anything, the NFL ends up doing about it. The 49ers said Sunday they'll put Foster on waivers; spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is reviewing the matter.FIGHT!As this season spirals out of control Color Rush Mike Williams Jersey , Doug Marrone's Jacksonville Jaguars keep finding new ways to embarrass themselves. The latest example: Running back Leonard Fournette, who went from his team's sideline to the opposite sideline to throw punches at Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson near the stands in Buffalo's 24-21 victory. As if that weren't enough, the scrap spilled into the tunnel after both players were ejected. Fournette might have been able to help the Jags (3-8) avoid a seventh loss in a row had he remained in the game. Plus, as Hall of Famer Deion Sanders put it on the NFL Network: "This fool ran across the field?!"RIVERS THREW ITHe wasn't exactly facing much of an opponent, but Chargers QB Philip Rivers sure turned in a performance to remember, completing 25 straight passes and finishing with a 96.6 completion percentage (connecting on 28 of 29 throws) 鈥?both single-game NFL records 鈥?to help LA top the Arizona Cardinals 45-10 and improve to 8-3. "It was a fun day, to say the least," Rivers said.LUCK COULD RUN OUTGive Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich credit for creative play designs, having Andrew Luck run pass routes in back-to-back games, including one that resulted in a 4-yard catch on fourth down to move the sticks on a TD drive in Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Miami Dolphins. But, the coolness of Luck's first career reception aside, someone also needs to remind Reich that his team's success depends largely on Luck 鈥?and that the QB missed all of last season with a shoulder injury. So maybe it's time to put those trick plays back in Reich's pocket.AP Pro Football Writer Josh Dubow contributed to this report.Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at ://HowardFendrich Custom Washington Redskins Jerseys
