MLB catcher Brad Ausmus as their new manager on Sunday http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-clay-buchholz-jersey , the team announced.Ausmus spent 18 years in the major leagues during a nomadic career that featured stops with the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers as well as two stints apiece with the Detroit Tigers and Houston Astros. He won three Gold Glove Awards and earned an All-Star Game appearance in 1999.The 49-year-old Connecticut native was named the Tigers' manager in November 2013 following the retirement of Jim Leyland.Ausmus led Detroit to a 90-72 record and a playoff appearance during his first season at the helm. They were swept by the Baltimore Orioles in the Divisional Series, however, and failed to make it back to the postseason across his final three years in charge.The Tigers finished Ausmus' tenure with a 314-332 record in four years."Yeah, I would like to manage again. It's something I enjoy doing," he told reporters in September 2017 about his exit. "It wasn't for lack of effort Aaron Altherr Jersey , we just didn't perform on the field. And the fact that we didn't win, I'll shoulder that. I'm the manager, I'm the leader. I'll take the blame."He proceeded to join the Angels as a special assistant to general manager Billy Eppler for 2018.Ultimately, Ausmus is getting the second opportunity to manage he wanted with the Angels, but he'll need to produce more consistent results than he did in Detroit to keep the position for the long haul.He'll inherit a L.A. roster led by MLB gold standard Mike Trout as well as Justin Upton and Shohei Ohtani鈥攁nd likely be expected to deliver a postseason berth in 2019. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:RALLY MURPHYThe Cubs have scored exactly one run in five straight games http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-chase-utley-jersey , all via solo homers, but they’re hoping new addition Daniel Murphy can help string together some hits. The NL Central leaders bolstered their struggling lineup by acquiring Murphy in a trade with Washington on Tuesday, and he may join the club for a night game at Detroit. The 33-year-old Murphy was the NL Championship Series MVP when the Mets swept the Cubs in 2015, hitting .529 with four homers and six RBIs.“It’s going to be more fun to watch him hit,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “He kind of devastated us in 2015.”‘PEN PAINYankees closer Aroldis Chapman is likely to have an MRI after he experienced pain Tuesday in the same left knee where he dealt with tendinitis earlier this season. Chapman was pulled in the 12th inning of a win over Miami after averaging just 96 mph on his fastball Richie Ashburn Jersey , the lowest of any outing for him since 2013, according to ESPN Stats & Info. Chapman has 31 saves and a 2.11 ERA this season. New York held reliever David Robertson out of Tuesday’s win because of a sore right shoulder, though manager Aaron Boone did not anticipate Robertson would be out long.POSEY’S DECISIONGiants catcher Buster Posey is expected to play against the Mets in New York, but the season might soon be coming to an end for the six-time All-Star. Posey says he’s considering surgery to fix a hip problem that’s been hobbling him all year.The 31-year-old Posey hasn’t homered in a span of 166 at-bats since June 19, the third-longest homerless drought of his career in terms of days. San Francisco is 62-65 and behind several teams for the second NL wild-card spot.WELCOME BACKStephen Strasburg (6-7 Chuck Klein Jersey , 3.90 ERA) returns to Washington’s rotation after being sidelined by a cervical nerve impingement. His start at home against the Phillies will be his first outing since July 20. He’s 10-2 with a 2.22 ERA in 21 career starts vs. Philadelphia.HELLO OLD FRIENDMatt Adams is expected to join the Cardinals after being acquired Tuesday from the fading Nationals. St. Louis has charged back into playoff contention, and they’re hoping a reunion with the lefty-swinging slugger can push them over the top. Adams hit .257 with 18 home runs and 48 RBIs in 249 at-bats after signing with Washington in the offseason. Adams should be activated prior to the Cardinals’ series finale at Dodger Stadium.CHECK HIMWhite Sox manager Rick Renteria will undergo further testing after an episode of lightheadedness. The 56-year-old Renteria was released from a Minnesota hospital on Tuesday, a day after missing a game.Renteria will be tested at a hospital in Chicago. Bench coach Joe McEwing is running the team while Renteria is away.

Tampa Bay is -19 in turnover margin this season http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-ali-marpet-jersey , which is not only the worst in the NFL but on pace for the worst in NFL history. If the Buccaneers continue their current pace through 16 games, they’ll finish with a turnover margin of -34. The all-time record is -30, set by the Steelers in 1965.“Well, turnovers are killing us right now,” said coach Dirk Koetter. “We’re minus-19, we’re last in the league, 13 in the last four games, 13 turnovers and no takeaways. That’s by far the number-one thing that’s hurting our team. [We] have talked about it many times 鈥?every turnover has its own story. If there was one thing to it, it would be easy to fix. As a team, we’re turning it over too much and not getting any takeaways on the other side.”The Buccaneers’ turnover differential is almost entirely attributable to interceptions: Their offense has thrown 19 interceptions, while their defense has only intercepted one pass all season. Fumbles have been close to a wash Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey , with their offense losing six fumbles and their defense recovering five.However, with Ryan Fitzpatrick remaining the starting quarterback, the Buccaneers are unlikely to break the record. Fitzpatrick has thrown interceptions on 4 percent of his passes this season. Jameis Winston has thrown interceptions on 7 percent of his passes this season. So the Bucs would be more likely to keep the interceptions going if Winston were the starter. (Winston also fumbles more often than Fitzpatrick.)Turnovers are often inconsistent, and the Bucs are more likely to regress toward the mean for the rest of the season than they are to continue losing the turnover margin at a pace of -2 a game. But if they do keep this pace, they’ll be the worst team ever at giveaways and takeaways. It doesn't matter if Jameis Winston or Ryan Fitzpatrick is at quarterback for the Buccaneers. A porous defense keeps undermining Tampa Bay's chances of winning.The Bucs (3-5) have lost five of six following a 2-0 start. Neither changing quarterbacks nor firing defensive coordinator Mike Smith has been an answer to ending a tailspin that's dropped the team into a familiar hole: last place in the NFC South, where they've finished six of the last seven seasons."I don't think the past equals the future," coach Dirk Koetter said after Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Carolina Panthers, a game the Bucs trailed 35-7 at one point. "We've got to play better football, more consistent football. We have to get off to better starts. We've got to be in the hunt in (the) turnover battle."The Bucs are first in the NFL in passing offense and second in total yards. But well as they've moved the ball through eight games, they're just as bad defensively in allowing a league-high 275 points (34.4 per game) and ranking 30th among 32 teams against the pass.To make matters worse, Tampa Bay hasn't forced a turnover in a club-record five consecutive games.Winston lost his starting job after throwing four interceptions two weeks ago. Fitzpatrick flourished early in the season filling in while Winston was serving a three-game suspension. However Authentic Ryan Jensen Jersey , in his last three starts the Bucs have been outscored 103-27 in the opening half.Inconsistency on offense has been part of the problem. Shoddy defense has been a recurring theme, even in the games the Bucs have won.Carolina scored on five straight possessions during one stretch of the first half to build a 28-point lead. Fitzpatrick rallied the team within 35-28 in the fourth quarter before the Panthers put away the game.The loss dropped the Bucs to 2-3 in games started by Fitzpatrick. Winston, who's thrown 10 interceptions in four games, is 1-2.A common denominator in Tampa Bay's three victories is the Bucs have played mostly with the lead and found a way to hold off New Orleans, Philadelphia and Cleveland late.In the other five games — all losses — opponents have compiled double-digit leads in the first half, and the offense has spent the second half trying to make up ground.Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul said players have to own the ineffectiveness."It's frustrating, but that's on the players. It's not on the coaches. It's on us, it's on me," Pierre-Paul said. "I'm tired of the coaches saying they have to take it because it's up to the players to play ball."Koetter said poor tackling was the primary culprit against the Panthers. Mistakes on offense and special teams contributed to falling by 28 in the second quarter."We actually did start fast on defense," Koetter said Monday. "On those five straight drives where they scored, on three of those drives we put them in horrible field position with an interception Youth Vinny Curry Jersey , two sacks, a punt return and a fake punt."Fitzpatrick rallied the team from a big second-half deficit for the second straight week, only to fall short in the end, throwing for 243 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.Not good enough to win, but encouraging enough the Koetter said the 35-year-old will start again Sunday at home against Washington."We know we have the talent, it's just we can't keep digging ourselves in these holes, especially on the road," Fitzpatrick said."I don't know that there is an answer or a magical formula or anything; it's just frustrating right now to not play well and then play well in spurts," the quarterback added. "We're just not a very consistent team and not a consistent offense right now."

On Thursday Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , the official Twitter account of Sunday Night Football on NBC posed a question: of the NFL teams with one Super Bowl win, which is the best franchise?  a number of those teams being the answer to the question. But that’s not really what I took away from that graphic. What really hit me as I looked at those teams is just how much worse the Bucs have been than the rest of them in recent history. It got me thinking about Tampa Bay’s status in the NFL, which definitely isn’t a good one right now.The Eagles won the Super Bowl last year. The Rams are playing for the Lombardi Trophy this year. The Chiefs and Saints just barely missed out on playing for their second Super Bowl victories this past Sunday. The Seahawks made the playoffs this year and have been a solid team for the last several years, even playing for a second trophy the year after winning their first. The Bears got to the postseason this year as well, and appear set to contend for the foreseeable future behind a young quarterback and a defense with a ridiculous amount of talent.Even the Jets (yes, THE NEW YORK JETS) have played for an AFC Championship this decade. Sure, it’s fair to say that New York has had a rough time since that loss in the 2010 playoffs. But even still, that franchise has had success more recently than the Bucs. Tampa Bay hasn’t been to the playoffs in this decade. It hasn’t won a postseason game since winning the Super Bowl on Jan. 26 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie , 2003. That’s just sad, folks.The good news is, the Bucs might be one good year away from losing their “laughing stock” status. Talent hasn’t really been the main issue for Tampa Bay, which is why hopes are high for the team under new head coach Bruce Arians, who has a proven track record. Plus, at least the Bucs have a Lombardi Trophy. Everyone go ahead and wave at the Bengals, Bills, Browns Youth Customized Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys , Cardinals, Chargers, Falcons, Jaguars, Lions, Panthers, Texans, Titans and Vikings. I guess things could be worse... Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com , powered by SurveyMonkey.

From saying he’s unable to get his point across to the players to throwing candy to the media, Koetter has lost his damn mind and maybe even the locker room.With so much talent on the team and not even a good record to show for it, you can’t blame the fans for their lack of confidence in the team nor their lack of support.The graphic below shows the steady drop in fan confidence.

The Carolina Panthers have been awarded the No. 16 pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft after finishing the 2018 season with a 7-9 record Carolina Panthers T-Shirt , the team announced tonight.here are the last five players taken with the No. 16 pick in the draft:2018 — LB Tremaine Edmunds (BUF)2017 — CB Marlon Humphrey (BAL)2016 — OT Taylor Decker (DET)2015 — CB Kevin Johnson (HOU)2014 — G Zack Martin (DAL)I know what you’re thinking right now. You think that the Panthers blew a great opportunity to draft the next big thing with a top-ten pick. I’m here to tell you that the sky is not falling and the world isn’t coming to an end just because the Panthers beat the Saints earlier today. Drafting No. 16 overall will still give the Panthers a chance to draft a great player, and while a first round player will certainly help, the Panthers are more than one top-ten pick away from being a premier team again.I know it doesn’t seem like it now, but it’s gonna be okay y’all.The Panthers have plenty of needs and will try to address some of them with their 2019 draft class. Now that we know where they will pick in the draft we can begin to speculate on the players they will choose. Stay tuned to CSR for plenty of draft coverage throughout the offseason Carolina Panthers Hats , as we’ll take a look at potential draft picks at various positions of need over the next several months. Last Sunday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium apparently didn’t whet the appetite of football fans in the Tampa area.The game was the lowest attended game in eight years, drawing just 40,682 fans in actual attendance to the stadium that can hold 65,618 regularly and be expanded up to 75,000 for large events.According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times Carolina Panthers Womens Hoodie , the Buccaneers have responded by offering a limited number of free tickets to season pass holders for this Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. The team sent emails to ticket holders on Wednesday announcing the ticket availability on a first-come, first-served basis.“Arrive early to get the party started and let’s make sure the Panthers know this is OUR house,” the email read., per Stroud.The Buccaneers have the third-lowest average attendance in the NFL this season behind only the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers, who play at the smallest stadium in the league as a temporary home. The game against the 49ers was the lowest attended home game since only 39 Womens Customized Carolina Panthers Jerseys ,781 fans attended a game against the Panthers in 2010. The Panthers would finish the season 2-14 with the Buccaneers going 10-6 but missing the playoffs.“We have always looked for ways to add to the fan experience, and this offer is just another example of our desire to bring added value to our season pass聽 members,” said Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford.“We have made similar offers over the years and the holiday seemed like a great opportunity to thank our loyal season pass members with a special opportunity like this.”

Orleans Saints as the best team in the NFL after their win over the Los Angeles Rams. The previously undefeated Rams Carolina Panthers Hoodie , the Saints, the New England Patriots, and the Kansas City Chiefs have been the stories of the season as far as the league is concerned. Their offenses are lightning rods for attention and impossible for defenses. The Carolina Panthers, meanwhile, came out of the gates this season with more of a stumble than a start.Their offensive explosion in the last three games rivals what the media darlings have produced without garnering quite as much attention. They are going to be mentioned frequently, but they will be cast in the role of an obstacle for the Saints. For now there is only so much air to fill and the Panthers might not make the cut as an elite team. That’s irrelevant to their hopes this season.It may have taken a few games to figure out how to use all of their pieces on offense, but their record is still in striking distance of the best in the league. They have won their last three games because of a newfound willingness to put their skill position players in successful situations. Last season saw three losses to the Saints in part because their defense had no answer to Alvin Kamara, but mostly because their offense couldn’t keep up.There is still a gulf between the Saints and the Panthers on offense. That will exist until the Panthers prove it doesn’t in a head-to-head contest. The ability to use Christian McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel Cheap Customized Carolina Panthers Jerseys , and D.J. Moore consistently and creatively makes that gulf seem smaller than it once did. They have scored 33 points per game over the last three games. That’s more than their season mark in 2015. The Panthers seem destined to play the Saints three times again this season. Their new look offense will be the difference in those games — if the Panthers are able to overcome them at all.Their offense isn’t the only unit finding creative solutions to problems. The Panthers began the season a little slow in the secondary and struggling to produce pressure. Eric Washington’s first year as defensive coordinator has been rocky to say the least. Much of that has changed with the integration of Eric Reid into the defense. The secondary is now producing turnovers at a greater rate than last years’ and the Panthers are getting a variety of players, including Reid, involved in blitzes that are finally producing results.They are still uncomfortably old at defensive end, a fact that is now unavoidable. Washington has to keep finding ways to manufacture pressure outside of his traditional pass rushers if the Panthers are to have a chance in the playoffs. The offense may be the key to beating the Saints, but balance will be required to tackle the rest of the league. They will have the luxury of competing with less of a circus than they had in 2015 until they face New Orleans.Every game between now and January shapes what the Panthers postseason will look like. At 6-2, they are all but guaranteed a wild card berth at the least. It would require a fantastic failure or travesty of bad fortune for the Panthers to fall short of that. Whether or not they struggle with the Saints, return to bad coaching habits, or grow too long in the tooth on defense between now and then will tell us what this season is. Right now, everything is still in front of them. Cam Newton is clearly not at the top of his game. He entered the NFL with one of the strongest arms in the league and turned downfield passing into a hallmark of the Carolina Panthers’ offense. For the first time in his career www.panthersfootballauthentic.com , Newton has had to step off the field in crucial, late-game situations to let his back-up attempt a desperation Hail Mary because his own arm isn’t up to the task. He hasn’t looked quite right since undergoing successful surgery to address a partially torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder in March 2017.These surgeries take time to recover from, according to Dr. Bradford Parsons, Chief of Shoulder Surgery at the Mount Sinai Hospital. “Full recovery is the goal,” he said, “but everyone’s timeline is different.” Dr. Parsons has not treated or examined Newton, but has experience with similar sports-related injuries. He wanted to make it clear that every patient gradually recovers their strength and range of motion. With Newton putting a tremendous amount of strain on his shoulder by playing in the NFL, it isn’t surprising that he is still having to take rest days during the week. Cris Carter told Cat Scratch Reader last week that the second half of the season was all about veterans managing small injuries, and that wasn’t even accounting for Newton’s rehabilitation after his surgery.Dr. Parsons also warned against using previous high profile shoulder injuries like the ones suffered by Drew Brees or Andrew Luck as measuring sticks for Newton. Brees miraculously returned from what could have been a career ending injury. Luck Carolina Panthers T-Shirt , meanwhile, re-injured his throwing shoulder outside of football and greatly extended his own recovery time. These aren’t Newton’s story.The optimism that can be drawn from their stories is that both Brees and Luck returned from ostensibly more serious shoulder injuries than Newton suffered. Brees was back in less than a year, and Luck took a famously long time to recover, but they both came back to throwing the football at a high level. There may be more information about the exact nature of Newton’s shoulder injury than has been made public, but what has been reported can be put firmly in the “it could have been worse” category when compared to the labral tears of Luck or Brees.Panthers fans who like to claim that the sky is falling over Bank of America stadium often start with one of two arguments. First, they like to cry that it has been too long since Newton’s original surgery and he must have hit his ceiling in terms of recovery. When asked specifically if Newton’s shoulder could still be healing or improving, Dr. Parsons responded that “yes, he could continue to build up strength in his arm and increase its durability as he recovers over time.” The second concern is that Newton is almost over the hill, in NFL terms. With his 30th birthday next year Carolina Panthers Hats , the argument goes, there is cause for concern that he is getting too old to effectively recover and he will be a limited passer for the rest of his career. Dr. Parsons was also very firm in his opinion on that subject: “At the age of 29 he’s still a young guy who has a great chance of healing. Age isn’t a factor in how he heals.”That is a huge relief for Panthers fans who were worried about the long term risks to the career of their favorite quarterback. Cam hopefully won’t be behind any desperation heaves to Ted Ginn, Jr. come Monday night against the New Orleans Saints, but his days of deep passing aren’t behind him. It is always possible that there is information about his shoulder health that isn’t public or that he injures his throwing shoulder again, but for now another year of healing should be nothing but good for Newton’s future.

The 2018 NFL season is nearly nine weeks old Akeem Spence Jersey , which means there are only eight weeks remaining before the playoffs begin.  not exactly lighting the world on fire right now, but guess what? They actually are right in the middle of the playoff hunt. Want proof? Well, here you go. We take a look today at the current AFC playoff picture.The Division leaders are currently the Kansas City Chiefs, the New England Patriots http://www.dolphinscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-robert-quinn-jersey , the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Houston Texans. The Wildcard teams are the Los Angeles Chargers and the Cincinnati Bengals. The Dolphins are currently seventh in the AFC, the only team not in the current playoff seeding with a winning record. They are effectively tied with the Bengals - though Miami still has to have their bye week and the Bengals have the head-to-head tie break on the Dolphins - with both teams at five wins. Here is the full AFC standings through (most of) Week 9:AFC Playoff Picture1 - AFC West leader - Kansas City Chiefs (8-1)2 - AFC East leader - New England Patriots (7-2)3 - AFC North leader - Pittsburgh Steelers (5-2-1)4 - AFC South leader - Houston Texans (6-3)5 - Wildcard - Los Angeles Chargers (6-2)6 - Wildcard - Cincinnati Bengals (5-3)7 - Miami Dolphins (5-4)8 - Baltimore Ravens (4-5)9 - Tennessee Titans (3-4)*10 - Jacksonville Jaguars (3-5)**11 - Indianapolis Colts (3-5)12 - New York Jets (3-6)***13 - Denver Broncos (3-6)14 - Cleveland Browns (2-6-1)15 - Buffalo Bills (2-7)16 - Oakland Raiders (1-7)*Plays on Monday Night Football** Tie break: Win percentage vs. common opponents*** Tie break: Head-to-headThe immediate future for Miami is not pretty. They travel to play the Green Bay Packers - who are capable of dominating any week despite a 3-4-1 record this season - in Week 10. Then, after a Week 11 bye week, Miami travels to the Colts in Week 12, then home against the Bills and Patriots in Weeks 13 and 14. Miami’s playoff chances really could be decided through this run of four weeks. Miami, to be a true playoff contenders Cheap Kenny Stills Jersey , still has to solve their offensive woes and prove Sunday’s defensive win over the Jets was because of an improvement from the defense and not because they were facing the Jets’ anemic offense.Looking at the AFC Wildcard contenders, the Bengals’ next four weeks feature a game at home against the New Orleans Saints, at the Ravens, and then home against the Browns and Broncos. The Chargers are at the Raiders, then home against the Broncos and Arizona Cardinals, before a road game against the Steelers. The Ravens have the home game against the Bengals followed by another home game against the Raiders. The They then hit the road for a game at the Atlanta Falcons then at the Chiefs.After tonight’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, the Titans will host the Patriots Daniel Kilgore Jersey , then visit the Colts and Texans. They will then host the Jets in Week 13. Below is a list of today’s early afternoon NFL games lineup. As with all other posts on the site please continue to follow all site rules.

Charles R. McDonaldThe comeback drives were the most impressive part of Lamar Jackson’s debut. Before Sunday www.ravenscheapshops.com , the Ravens had not won a game decided by less than a touchdown since Week 15 of the 2016 season. From hospital to history: Inside Lamar Jackson’s first NFL start - Jamison HensleyRobert Griffin III saw the field for just one of the Ravens 79 offensive snaps. Jackson’s completion percentage of 64.5 this season is slightly better than Griffin’s career average of 63.3-percent.Gus Edwards’ standout effort gives Ravens opportunity to employ committee backfield - Ben CooperGus Edwards’ decisive running style complements Jackson’s talent perfectly. What the Bengals Said About Lamar Jackson’s First Win - Ryan MinkBaltimore’s defense held Cincinnati to three yards per rush and defensed seven passes, including Marlon Humphrey’s fourth down breakup on the Bengals final offensive play.Joe Flacco’s 2018 performance compared to previous seasons The Ravens are 2-1 and Joe Flacco has lead his squad to two victories over the past three weeks. In those games, he’s thrown six touchdowns and two interceptions. He’s come through and completed big-time throws to his three new wide receivers and also the tight end unit. These three games feel refreshing as the offense continues to score time and time again, therefore I felt obligated to compare his impressive 2018 start to the seasons’ prior Baltimore Ravens T-Shirt , dating back to 2012.Joe Flacco season comparisonYear2018201720162015201420132012Year2018201720162015201420132012Looking over the numbers you realize Flacco’s playing some of his best football since 2012.Joe’s completion percentage is middle-of-the-pack for the seven seasons being compared but that’s fine when you’re throwing for more yards. The only three-game start with more yards is his 2012 season, which is only 24 yards greater than 2018. Keep in mind, Flacco didn’t finish the first game in 2018 as the Ravens blew out the Buffalo Bills 47-3, keeping Joe from more yardage.This is also the most touchdowns Flacco’s thrown for in a three-game opening stretch since 2012. Notice Baltimore Ravens Hats , he’s tied his lowest interception total for this measurement, with two. His average over the six prior years sits around 2.8 interceptions.The worrisome stat coincides with the sacks; only the 2013 season featured more, which shows this offensive line isn’t always keeping Flacco upright and protected. Hopefully, the offensive line will tighten it up as they develop over the season.

BALTIMORE (AP) — In the days leading up to his first NFL start Baltimore Ravens T-Shirt , Lamar Jackson experienced a stomach ache and insomnia.Jackson inflicted a whole lot of pain on the Cincinnati Bengals.Jackson juked and sprinted for 117 yards, Gus Edwards ran for 115 and the Baltimore Ravens ground out a 24-21 victory Sunday to end a three-game losing streak. Flashing the moves that enabled him to win the 2016 Heisman Trophy at Louisville, Jackson zipped in and out of the pocket for 27 carries. Though the Ravens (5-5) relied heavily on the run, Jackson also completed 13 of 19 passes for 150 yards with an interception."We came out with a win, so it was pretty good, I guess," Jackson said. "I had butterflies before the first tackle, but after the first tackle, it was game on."Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco did not practice all week and was inactive with a right hip injury. That created an opening for Jackson, the 32nd overall pick in the NFL draft.But Jackson missed practice Thursday with a stomach ailment that led to a trip to the hospital, where he was treated and released. Then, sleep eluded him Saturday night."I think I stayed up all night," Jackson said. "I was ready to play last night."Before Sunday, Jackson occasionally took snaps in running situations and replaced Flacco in the fourth quarter of two blowouts. Having to carry the load by himself, Jackson responded with a solid performance in a game the Ravens had to win."It wasn't pretty, wasn't perfect, but it was us," coach John Harbaugh said. "It was the Ravens, and we won the football game."Down 21-13 in the second half, Baltimore rallied to hand the sinking Bengals (5-5) their fourth loss in five games.Edwards Baltimore Ravens Hats , an undrafted rookie free agent, scored on an 11-yard run and barreled in for the conversion late in the third quarter. Jackson then directed a 55-yard drive that ended with a field goal by Justin Tucker with 8:12 remaining."My teammates had my backs, and I had theirs," Jackson said.Cincinnati's Randy Bullock missed a potential tying 52-yard field goal with 3:59 left, and Andy Dalton's fourth-down pass from the Baltimore 37 with 1:42 to go was knocked away by Marlon Humphrey."I definitely thought we were going to go down there, we were going to score and win the game," Dalton said.This was a tough defeat for the Bengals, who were soaring at 4-1 in October but now stand at .500 for the first time after letting Jackson run rampant."We weren't able to get him stopped enough," said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, who fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin on Monday after the unit allowed 500 yards in three straight games, an NFL record in the Super Bowl era. Lewis took control of the defense, which was better this time around despite allowing 265 yards rushing."I thought they played hard," Lewis said of his defense. "I thought they played better and did a good job on assignments."Jackson ran 10 times for 64 yards and five first downs , Alex Collins scored on a 7-yard run to cap the opening drive, and the Ravens took a 13-7 halftime lead when Tucker drilled a 56-yard field goal.It all came apart for Baltimore in the third quarter. Jackson threw his first NFL interception , a pick by Shawn Williams, whose 22-yard return set up a 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end Matt Lengel for a 14-13 lead.On the next series, Jackson was stuffed on a fourth-and-1 from the Baltimore 45. Dalton turned the gamble into a touchdown, hitting John Ross on the right side of the end zone for a 22-yard score.But the Ravens rallied.KEEP ‘EM GUESSINGThough Jackson lacks experience, he certainly knows how to keep a defense guessing. More than Flacco, anyway."It's like two different offenses Baltimore Ravens Womens Hoodie ," Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict said. "With Joe Flacco, he just stands back there and isn't very mobile but throws the ball hard. This guy (Jackson) is very unpredictable."But can he win a game with his arm?"I don't know how well he throws the ball," Burfict said. "But I guess we'll find out."ROOKIE QBSThis is the first season in NFL history in which five rookie quarterbacks selected in the first round of the same draft have started at least one game. Jackson joined the Jets' Sam Darnold, the Bills' Josh Allen, the Cardinals' Josh Rosen and the Browns‘ Baker Mayfield.GRIFFIN DEBUTAlso on Sunday, Robert Griffin III made his debut with Baltimore after being on the inactive list for the first nine weeks. Griffin lined up as a receiver in the second quarter but did not touch the ball.READY AND RESTEDThe Ravens improved to 9-2 after a bye under Harbaugh, and they're 14-3 since 2002 following an extra week off.INJURIESBengals: WR A.J. Green (toe) was inactive after dressing for warmups.Ravens: OT James Hurst (back) was inactive for a fourth straight week. … OT Ronnie Stanley twice limped off the field. He's had ankle issues lately.UP NEXTBengals: A matchup next Sunday against visiting Cleveland should be particularly meaningful for former Browns coach Hue Jackson, hired as an assistant by Cincinnati on Tuesday.Ravens: A three-game homestand concludes for Baltimore against the struggling Oakland Raiders. Lamar Jackson isn't staying awake at night thinking about the prospect of making his first NFL start.Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco missed practice Wednesday because of a hip injury, and his status for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals is uncertain.If Flacco can't go, coach John Harbaugh likely will turn to Jackson, whose first pro season thus far has been spent taking a few snaps per game in run situations."I'm going into it just like any other week. Just preparing for whatever," Jackson said. "Everything is still the same."Starting at quarterback for a team desperate to end a three-game skid might cause some rookies to squirm, but Jackson insisted he's sleeping "like a baby."Flacco hurt his hip early in a 23-16 loss to Pittsburgh on Nov. 4. He had the bye week to recover, but is still receiving treatment, meaning his availability for Baltimore (4-5) against the Bengals (5-4) could come down to a game-time decision.Harbaugh appears done talking about it."Rather than tip my toe in the water and start answering one question and then not answering the next one, I'm just not going to get into it. I'm just going to leave it alone," he said. "I feel like we don't owe anybody any answers."If Flacco can't play, veteran Robert Griffin III will likely serve as backup to the rookie he's been mentoring since summer. Griffin, like Jackson, was a running quarterback who had to make the transition into a passing league.Griffin won the Heisman Trophy as a junior at Baylor and finished with 2,254 yards rushing with 33 touchdowns. Jackson won the Heisman in 2016 and finished with 4 Womens Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys ,132 yards on the ground with 50 touchdowns.Now they're together in Baltimore, trying to get the Ravens into the postseason."Everybody wants to be a part of a winner," Griffin said. "This franchise has done a lot of winning; we just got to make sure that we get back to that."After sitting out last season, Griffin launched his comeback by signing in April with the Ravens, presumably to be Flacco's backup. He dropped to No. 3 on the depth chart soon after Baltimore traded up to get Jackson in the first round.Though he has 41 career starts (including playoffs), Griffin will likely serve as a backup Sunday if Flacco can't play. At least he will be in uniform after spending the first nine weeks on the inactive list."I haven't been OK not playing," Griffin said. "I think if I was OK not playing, then I wouldn't be the competitor that I've grown to be. But within that, you have to control what you can."He will do what he's asked on Sunday, but makes no secret of his desire to start."It would be awesome," Griffin said. "It's been a heck of a journey, but coming here was the best thing I could've done. Knowing what it means to play like a Raven and growing with these guys has been something that's been real special for me. If I get that opportunity to go out there and play, I'm going to make most of it and show these guys not only how hard I've been working, but how much I believe in them."Griffin wants to win, and his main contribution toward that end has been to make the 21-year-old Jackson a better quarterback."It's been great. I didn't think I'd be a big brother at 28," Griffin said. "I've got two older sisters, I'm the baby of the family, but it's been great to take Lamar under my wing and kind of be that big-brother figure to him. His future is very bright."
