Tom Brady recognizes need to spread ball around more – New England Patriots Blog

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – When New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is knocked off his usual sharp game, he tends to revert to his most-trusted options. That was highlighted in Sunday’s blowout loss to the Tennessee Titans. Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon were each targeted 12 times. Every other receiver had a total of three passes thrown in their direction. Better distribution would be ideal. “I have to figure out a way to get the ball to everybody, so we can all make plays,” Brady acknowledged Monday during his weekly interview…

Not done yet: Eli Manning leads Giants past Niners – New York Giants Blog

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Eli Manning has a little something left in the tank. The embattled New York Giants quarterback led a game-winning touchdown drive in a 27-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Manning hit Sterling Shepard for the decisive score in the final minute. It allowed the Giants to end a five-game skid, and perhaps extended Manning’s run as the Giants’ starting quarterback, a job he has held since midway through the 2004 season. Eli Manning answered his critics with three touchdowns and a comeback…

Is Eli Manning facing his final stand with New York Giants? – New York Giants Blog

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Eli Manning has done it before. He has shut out the noise, defied the doubters and accomplished the improbable.

Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott lead Cowboys to improbable road win – Dallas Cowboys Blog

PHILADEPHIA — The Dallas Cowboys’ storylines entering Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles weren’t exactly positive. The list included: a coach’s job security, a quarterback struggling to make plays, an offensive coordinator perhaps on his last chance and a defense left wobbly after its previous game. All in all, it added up to a season on the line. But the Cowboys left Lincoln Financial Field with a 27-20 victory that seemed improbable after losing their first four road games of the season, and they find themselves alive and breathing if…

FRISCO, Texas — One series into Monday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, Ezekiel Elliott had 29 yards on five carries. It looked like he was primed for a huge game that would lead the Dallas Cowboys to a much- needed win to get back to .500 at the midway point of the season. Even Elliott thought he was in line for a big day. “For sure,” he said. 1st Quarter 75 2nd Quarter 21 3rd Quarter 16 4th Quarter 0 For the rest of the game, Elliott had only 31…

One year later, Marquise Goodwin’s emotional TD still resonates – San Francisco 49ers Blog

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — On Monday, it will be exactly one year since San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin provided the most emotional moment of the 2017 NFL season. After Goodwin hauled in an 83-yard touchdown pass from quarterback C.J. Beathard in Week 10 against the New York Giants, he blew a kiss to the heavens and dropped to his knees to pray in the end zone, overcome by the weight of the moment. In the wee hours of that Sunday morning, Goodwin’s infant son had been delivered stillborn,…

Donald McCain’s Blog | RaceBets Blog EN

Donald McCain It was nice to get a win last weekend with Raise A Spark and I was very happy to see Chti Balko run so well at Ayr on his seasonal debut. This weekend is going to be a relatively quiet one, as we continue to wait for the rain to arrive. It’s frustrating as I wanted to run more horses including Fin And Game but the ground is still too quick. So I have declared four runners in total, two head to Aintree and two are bound for…
