Nothing unusual about that situation, right? It’s second down, the Jags still have a timeout left, and they need two scores regardless. Most coaches would just keep trying for the touchdown and take their chances on the onside kick … but Marrone is not most coaches. He sent out his special teams unit for a 54-yard field goal instead.
I should reiterate that — the Jaguars tried a 54-yard field Cheap Original Soccer Jerseys goal on second down, 10 points behind, with 1:12 and a timeout left. Oh, and the kicker, Josh Myers, already missed a field goal earlier in the day. He’s easily one of the worst kickers in football, but the Jags keep trotting him out for some reason.
There’s “we’re trying to hide Bortles in the offense,” and there’s “we have so little faith in Bortles that we’re trying a field goal on second down instead of letting him go for a touchdown.” Naturally, Myers missed the kick by about 50 miles and the Rams comfortably knelt out the clock.
Prosise is expected to return to the lineup this week after missing time because of an ankle injury. When on the field, he gives the Seahawks their best passing game option out of the backfield, which is the path that will lead him to being worth the modest investment.
In the Saints’ first game without Peterson, Kamara carried the ball 10 times for 75 yards and added another 12 yards receiving on four grabs. And the rookie should expect to see that same level of volume Cheap Penguins Jerseys moving forward (12-15 touches per game). Kamara has the ability to impact the passing game and his speed on the edge creates opportunities for big plays. With a matchup versus a Packers defense that is giving up an average of 24.5 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs (19th), Kamara is a solid value play as a versatile threat in the Saints’ offense. — Matt Bowen
