Cheap Baltimore Ravens Jersey Free Shipping Online

It has been 11 years since the Baltimore Ravens traded up from their original spot to draft a player. That might change in the 2020 NFL draft.

In 2009, Baltimore moved up three spots for offensive tackle Michael Oher. This year, if Baltimore wants a highly rated pass-rusher, a well-regarded “tackling machine” or a record-setting pass-catcher, the chances that LSU outside linebacker K’Lavon Chaisson, Oklahoma middle linebacker Kenneth Murray or LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson will be available when Baltimore is on the clock with the No. 28 overall pick is less than 20 percent, according to ESPN’s NFL Draft Predictor.

But there’s a reason the Ravens have been more apt to stay put or trade back in the first round.

“In general, trading up is dangerous, it’s a little bit risky,” general manager Eric DeCosta said. “I understand people love the idea of trading up to get a guy. But in general, historically if you look at all those trade ups, it’s 50-50.”

The Ravens have fared better than that. In their 24-year history, they’ve traded up from their original selection in the first round three times and landed an immediate, long-term starter each time. Baltimore moved up to get five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Haloti Ngata in 2006 and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Joe Flacco in 2008. The Ravens didn’t get the same value out of jumping up for Oher in 2009, but he is arguably the best right tackle in team history.

DeCosta’s approach to the first round is one area where he has shown patience, which he acknowledges isn’t his strong suit. In his 15 months as general manager, DeCosta has been aggressive with eight player trades (fifth-most in the league over that span) and the signing of 10 players to contract extensions.

When it comes to the draft, it’s more about hedging bets for DeCosta. In the last two drafts, Baltimore has traded back in the first round three times (dropping back a total of 12 spots) to gain an additional third-round pick, two fourth-rounders and a sixth-rounder. One of those picks was packaged by the Ravens to move up to select quarterback Lamar Jackson, and the others resulted in the drafting of starting left guard Bradley Bozeman, cornerback Iman Marshall and quarterback Trace McSorley.

“… The draft in and of itself, there’s definitely a luck component,” DeCosta said. “From that standpoint, you’re always better off having more picks than less picks. If you trade up, you give up picks. So you better get a guy that’s going to be a difference-maker if you trade up.”

There are difference-makers who are projected to fall into the second half of the first round, but will the Ravens be lucky enough for one to be there at No. 28?

Chaisson, who had 9.5 sacks in 24 games at LSU, is considered by some analysts to be the second-best pass-rusher in the draft behind Ohio State’s Chase Young. The buzz is the Dallas Cowboys are eyeing him at No. 17.

Murray, a three-year starter at Oklahoma, has been described as a “tackling machine” by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and would fill Baltimore’s biggest need at middle linebacker. There’s talk that the Las Vegas Raiders (No. 19) and New Orleans Saints (No. 24) could take him. In Kiper’s latest mock draft, he has the Jacksonville Jaguars taking Murray.

Jefferson, who is considered the fourth-best receiver in this loaded draft class, was presumptive No. 1 pick Joe Burrow’s favorite target last season, catching 111 passes and scoring 18 touchdowns. Many believe Jefferson won’t make it past the Philadelphia Eagles (No. 21).

According to ESPN’s NFL Draft Predictor, here are the chances for each of these players to be there at No. 28: Chaisson (16 percent), Murray (19 percent) and Jefferson (15 percent).

What would it take to vault past some of these teams? In 2018, the Green Bay Packers jumped nine spots from No. 27 to No. 18, giving up picks in the third and sixth rounds to do so. This year, the Ravens have nine picks (the eighth-most in this draft), including two third-round selections.

Baltimore has tried to trade up in recent drafts. In 2016, the Ravens spoke with Dallas about swapping the No. 6 overall pick for the No. 4 one to get cornerback Jalen Ramsey but the Cowboys didn’t want to risk missing out on running back Ezekiel Elliott. Baltimore selected offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley, who was a first-team All-Pro last season. In 2017, Baltimore attempted to move from No. 16 to No. 11 for cornerback Marshon Lattimore, but the New Orleans Saints declined because they wanted Lattimore. The Ravens ended up with cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who reached his first Pro Bowl last season.

“I think back to a couple years ago, we tried to make a trade for a guy who was falling a little bit, and we didn’t get him,” DeCosta said. “And, fortunately, the guy we got ended up being really good, so it worked out. Sometimes the best trades are the ones you don’t make.”

If the Ravens choose to remain at No. 28 or trade back, there will be players available who can improve the team. LSU’s Patrick Queen would be an immediate starter at middle linebacker, and Michigan’s Cesar Ruiz would step in for injured center Matt Skura or retired right guard Marshal Yanda. Wide receivers Tee Higgins, Brandon Aiyuk, Michael Pittman Jr. and Denzel Mims would give more weapons for Lamar Jackson. The Ravens have also been linked to pass-rushers A.J. Epenesa and Terrell Lewis along with running back D’Andre Swift and defensive tackle Ross Blacklock.

But the Ravens are coming off a 14-2 season and have only two more seasons with Jackson under a cap-friendly rookie deal. This seems like the time for Baltimore to take a gamble and do what it takes to get a playmaker like Chaisson, Murray or Jefferson.

“This year, we do have a lot of [picks]. We have the opportunity to maybe go up and get a guy,” DeCosta said. “Normally, when a guy starts to fall, what you find is other teams are trying to trade for him, too, and they’re usually willing to give up more than you’re willing to give up. We just assess case by case and see what we can do.”

Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Wholesale From China Free Shipping Online

No one is quite sure who the Arizona Cardinals will take with the No. 8 pick in the 2020 NFL draft, or which players could still even be on the board when the team makes its first selection.

But Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray wouldn’t mind seeing the team take his former college teammate at Oklahoma, CeeDee Lamb.

“Me and CeeDee have a great relationship,” Murray recently told The Arizona Republic’s Bob McManaman. “That’s one of my boys. I would obviously be very fond of that pick. Obviously, I don’t make the choices. I’m here for whatever, but I’m looking forward to free agency and us adding some great players and adding more of them in the draft so we can continue to grow this thing. But yeah, if we pick CeeDee, that would be great. We have a very comfortable relationship. I’ve played with him, I’ve been with him for years, so yeah, I don’t think that would be a bad pick at all.”

Lamb caught 62 passes for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns last season at Oklahoma.

With Murray as his quarterback in 2018, he had 65 receptions for 1,158 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim recently said that Murray was making it clear as to how he felt about Lamb potentially being the Arizona Cardinals’ pick at No. 8.

“From my text stream, you can tell Kyler likes him,” Keim told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.

“You always would also lean towards guys that you know,” Keim explained to the Doug & Wolf Show about Murray’s relationship with Lamb potentially playing a factor in the Cardinals’ process in the NFL draft. “If you know the person or you have confidence in who they are, through the information you obtain, it certainly gives you more confidence.”

In the same interview with 98.7 FM, Keim compared Lamb to star NFL receiver Deandre Hopkins of the Houston Texans.

“You watch CeeDee Lamb and there are some things that come to mind when I watch him that remind me a little bit of DeAndre Hopkins,” he said. “You talk about a guy that maybe isn’t the fastest vertically, but is gritty, tough and runs great routes.”

Lamb has been a trendy NFL mock draft pick for the Cardinals at No. 8 for months.

He is considered one of the top wide receivers in the 2019 NFL draft class, along with Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy, who has also been linked to Arizona in 2020 NFL draft projections.

Arizona is believed to be interested in taking a wide receiver early in the NFL draft to give the team another threat at the position alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk and provide another weapon for Murray to throw to in his second season in the league.

Offensive tackle has also been a trendy selection for the team in NFL mock draft projections for the draft, which begins on April 23.

Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys Wholesale From China Free Shipping Outlet

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is optimistic that Ben Roethlisberger’s rehab is going in the right direction and said he doesn’t think the veteran quarterback “is at the end of the road.”

Roethlisberger, who will turn 38 next month, had surgery on Sept. 23 to repair a season-ending elbow injury he suffered in Week 2. Colbert would neither confirm nor deny that Roethlisberger had Tommy John surgery, but said he remains on track in his rehab and has a checkup in Los Angeles on Feb. 21.

“All signs are good at this point, and where that goes, we’re hopeful he can make a complete recovery,” Colbert said. “As of right now, he’s on schedule for that. Where it goes from here remains to be seen.”

Roethlisberger is the last remaining quarterback drafted in 2004 who is with his longtime team, after Eli Manning’s retirement and Philip Rivers’ departure from the Chargers. Colbert believes Roethlisberger, a two-time Super Bowl champion, is still a valuable asset.

“He had an injury to his right arm, but other than that, he’s relatively healthy,” Colbert said. “We’re not minimizing the right arm injury to a right arm quarterback, but we don’t think he’s at the end of the road.”

Without Roethlisberger for most of last season, the Steelers had to rely on a pair of young, unproven backups, Mason Rudolph and Devlin “Duck” Hodges, to take the reins. The team went 8-6 on their watch and finished just outside the playoffs at 8-8.

The margin for error shrank with Rudolph and Hodges starting, placing more of a burden on the Steelers’ defense. Still, Colbert said the team is comfortable going into training camp with that pair and Paxton Lynch — a 2016 first-round pick who initially joined the practice squad before being elevated to the active roster — as Roethlisberger’s backups.

“Optimistically, [Roethlisberger] is on schedule to return and we hope to return to maybe even a better Ben Roethlisberger than he was previous to the injury,” Colbert said. “In the meantime, we understand who our backups are. We’re comfortable with who those backups are. I thought they did a great, representable job in 2019 under the circumstances.”

Despite missing the postseason for the second year in a row, Colbert is optimistic about the direction of his team.

“We’re all disappointed at 8-8,” he said, “but I feel better moving into 2020 than I did moving into 2019 coming off of 9-6-1.”

Wholesale New England Patriots Jerseys Outlet From USA

FOXBORO, Mass. — One hallmark of the New England Patriots’ three defeats this season? A slow start.

Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans, the Patriots were outscored 34-3

in the first quarter and 58-16 in the first half. All three games were on the road, and all resulted in

double-digit losses. The Patriots opened Sunday’s 34-10 loss to the Titans by giving up a 58-yard kick

return to Tennessee’s Darius Jennings, allowing Marcus Mariota’s offense to begin its first drive at

New England’s 40-yard line. The Titans scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and got a

field goal on their third to take a 17-3 lead less than 13 minutes into the game. “(When) you start

the game off by doing a terrible job on kickoff and the team takes it all the way back to your 40-yard

line, it’s just tough to bring energy,” Patriots safety Devin McCourty said Tuesday. “But if you go

out there and you go three-and-out in that situation, now you bring energy to the defense. You bring

energy to the offense that’ll take the field after if they have to punt the ball or attempt a long

field goal. “But I think we’ve just got to do a better job of weathering the storm, whether it be at

home or away. It’s shown up away. It hasn’t really shown up that much at home because we’ve gotten

off to good starts. But I think we have to do a better job of just weathering the storm and giving

ourselves a chance to bring energy and get going instead of just letting it snowball.” New England

also had uneven performances in their two road wins. They trailed the Chicago Bears by 10 in the second

quarter in Week 7 before rallying to win 38-31, then couldn’t find the end zone until the fourth

quarter in a 25-6 win over the lowly Buffalo Bills. “The road is, it’s one of those things where you

’ve got to bring your own energy,” defensive end Trey Flowers said. “It’s not kind of an excuse or

anything, but one of those things where they’ve got their crowd behind them and they’ve got a lot of

energy, so we’ve got to match their energy. “And you could see it on a lot of the losses we had on

the road. We just started slow, dug ourselves in a hole and kind of from there, it gave them energy and

we wasn’t allowed to execute the game plan.” The Patriots, who are off this weekend, will play three

of their final six games away from Gillette Stadium: at the New York Jets in Week 12, at the Miami

Dolphins in Week 14 and at the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 15.

Wholesale Los Angeles Rams Jerseys Outlet From China

The Los Angeles Rams are a great offensive team. They will find a way to adjust. Still, it’s hard to put into words how tough the loss of Cooper Kupp is.

The young wide receiver was a tremendous find in the 3rd round last year. He helped to elevate quarterback Jared Goff to elite status over the past year with his utterly reliable player. Unfortunately, as is so often the case in the NFL, he suffered a setback. The wide receiver left the Seattle Seahawks game with a knee injury.

Afterward, head coach Sean McVay admitted it didn’t look good. Further medical examination revealed the worst fears. Kupp had torn his ACL. The teams’ primary slot guy was done for the year, setting the stage for fellow 2017 pick Josh Reynold to get more playing time moving forward. Either way, it robs this offense of a vital piece to its passing attack. Do people understand how much?Kupp has been a key chains mover for the Rams since he arrived

Slot receivers can be great at a lot of things, but one key facet that makes them so important is their ability to get 1st downs. It’s such an underrated trait and something that’s not as easy as it sounds. Keeping the chains moving can be tough. Kupp has been their guy in this regard for two years. Of the 70 total catches he’s made as a pro, 46 of them went for a 1st down. That’s a staggering 65.71%. The guy was a machine.

To think he had over 500 yards and six touchdowns in just seven games going into Seattle. It’s a reminder that he was starting to mature into a genuine star for L.A. There’s no reason to think the Rams can’t keep scoring points, but even the best offenses never quite function at full capacity when they lose a player of that caliber and that importance.

Time will tell how much his absence does affect them.

Wholesale Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys OutLet From China

Believe it or not, the second-year stud for the Kansas City Chiefs had his doubters as far back as the 2017 NFL Draft.

Mitchell Trubisky is a solid quarterback. He has Chicago Bears fans excited for the future, but the number two overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft is no Patrick Mahomes II. Whether Trubisky is as good as the possible 2018 NFL MVP remains to be seen, but for now Mahomes is the class of that draft — and maybe this year’s NFL.

The former Texas Tech gunslinger now leads the NFL with 31 touchdown tosses and 3,150 passing yards. In what is essentially his rookie season, Mahomes is completing two-thirds of his pass attempts and averaging around 8.5 yards per throw.

In other words, he is exceeding even the greatest expectations anyone had for him, and is head and shoulders above Trubisky — who in his own right is having a nice season with 19 touchdowns and more than 2,000 yards.

The former North Carolina star’s play has taken some of the sting off the Bears’ passing on Mahomes, but the Buffalo Bills fan base has not been so lucky. The Bills, who selected Wyoming’s Josh Allen in the first round of this year’s draft, actually traded the tenth spot to the Chiefs in 2017 so Kansas City could take Mahomes, all the while desperately needing a competent signal caller themselves.

Here is some perspective on how that deal has gone for the Bills:Mahomes has a lot of regressing to do before we can give Boatright props for this prediction, but he wasn’t the only one wrong on Mahomes. Matthew Hatfield of VirginiaPreps.com used his nose to tell us Mahomes may not have a successful NFL career:The amazing Twitter account, Freezing Cold Takes, did some great work last month in exposing multiple verified accounts, including ESPN’s own Stephen A. Smith, that came out swinging with some less-than-stellar opinions on Mahomes right after the draft:TJ Carpenter, a former Kansas City radio host who spews his hot takes on Denver air waves these days, has had plenty to say about Mahomes — and he’s usually wrong , like this time:He may be right on the over/under of interceptions from Mahomes at ten, considering he has seven so far. However, Future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning led the NFL in picks with 28 his rookie season. That’s meaningless. As for the touchdowns, Carpenter lost his “guaranteed” bet after week eight.The most telling part of rehashing old takes regarding players isn’t that certain people were wrong. It happens. I once thought Ryan Leaf would be better than Manning. To say that was wrong would be like saying Bradley Cooper is kind of handsome.

Today’s constant barrage of hot takes from ESPN experts to Joe Blow on twitter is beyond tired. The fact that many get angry or begin backtracking if they are called out, makes it worse.

The greatest thing about sports is that you truly don’t know what is going to happen until the teams take the field. As ESPN anchor Chris Berman likes to say, “That’s why. They play. The game.” Mahomes plays the game better than most these days. More important than his stats is the fact the Chiefs are 9-1 and the favorite to claim the top seed in the AFC.Trubisky may turn out to be a Pro Bowl quarterback, and Allen may be the answer the Bills were looking for, but Mahomes is playing better than anyone under center right now — including Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady.

Whether you predicted that or not doesn’t matter. Mahomes actually is running a well-oiled machine, and in Kansas City that smells a lot more like barbecue than bust.

Wholesale Chicago Bears Jerseys Outlet From USA

The first half of the season was just a warmup. Now, things get serious for the Chicago Bears. Luckily, the Bears are in good position at 5-3 and atop the NFC North. But, the next few weeks will be incredibly telling about whether or not this team is ready for the big show.

Week 10 features the first of three divisional matchups in a row for the Bears, as they welcome the Detroit Lions to Soldier Field. Interestingly enough, both of these teams are headed in opposite directions, and for more than one reason.

Of course, the Lions are sitting at the bottom of the NFC North at 3-5, while the Bears are looking down on their three divisional foes. But, both of these teams are also differing greatly in the health department.

The Bears, on one hand, are set to get back two major pieces. Both outside linebacker Khalil Mack and wide receiver Allen Robinson should suit up on Sunday against Detroit.

Obviously, we saw what a difference Mack made on the entire team through his first few games on the field for the Bears. With Robinson, the offense just gets another boost among a group that continues to mix it up.

The Lions, on the other hand, might not be so lucky on Sunday. Currently, they could be without two important starters: Guard T.J. Lang and defensive back Darius Slay could be out for this one.If neither are able to go against the Bears, two players will become much more of a problem for Detroit. First of all, if Lang can’t go, the Lions are going to have their hands (even more) full with Eddie Goldman, who has been one of the best run-stuffers in all of football this year.If Slay can’t go, then the Lions have to watch out for the big play ability of both Anthony Miller and, especially, Taylor Gabriel. Slay leads the Lions with a pair of interceptions and four pass breakups on the season. He’s also been the most sure-fire tackler in that secondary.

Back to Lang, though, for a minute. The Lions surrendered a whopping 10 sacks last week against the Minnesota Vikings. If their best offensive lineman is out, imagine what a defensive featuring the likes of Mack, Goldman, Akiem Hicks, Danny Trevathan and Roquan Smith is going to do.This one could be very, very ugly for the Lions. Heck, it might be ugly either way. But, without Lang, Lions fans may want to look away.

Wholesale Tennessee Titans Jerseys Online Shopping

 

ARLINGTON — Well, this team certainly doesn’t deserve to be mentioned among playoff contenders. Not after a performance like that.

The Cowboys had plenty of chances to beat a Tennessee team coming off three straight losses.

Here are my thoughts on the Cowboys falling to 3-5 after a 28-14 loss Monday night at AT&T Stadium:

1. If the Cowboys can’t beat the Titans, how are they going to compete with Philadelphia, Atlanta, Washington or New Orleans over the next four weeks? Tennessee was supposed to be the best shot at a win. There’s plenty of blame to go around, but it begins with Dak Prescott. He just wasn’t accurate enough and had two costly turnovers that just can’t happen in a must-win type game like Monday night was. The running game wasn’t great and the offensive line continued to have problems. No points in the second half can’t happen coming off the bye against a three-win team.

2. The defense was not without blame. Despite some huge plays early on — recovering fumbles and getting stops — it wasn’t good enough, either. The Titans scored a season-high 28 points. They were 11 of 14 on third down. Marcus Mariota looked like a Pro Bowler. There’s just something about mobile quarterbacks and this defense. Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Alex Smith and now Mariota have all beaten Dallas. That’s a serious problem that needs to be addressed because that’s the way the NFL is going at the position.

3. Amari Cooper’s debut got off to a hot start as he caught a pass on the second play of the game and caught a touchdown on his third target. He finished with five catches for 58 yards on eight targets. Overall, he played pretty good for a midseason debut with a new team and a struggling offense. However, especially on Prescott’s red-zone interception, it appeared like the Cowboys were trying too hard to get him involved.

4. How big was the Daniel Ross sack that got called back late in the second quarter? The entire defense celebrated. But by the time they were on the sideline, the officials informed them that Tennessee had called a timeout before the ball was snapped. On the next play, Mariota connected with Darius Jennings on an outstanding throw (and better catch) between three defenders down the middle of the field for a 36-yard gain. Mariota then found Dion Lewis on a short pass that Lewis turned into an 18-yard touchdown and a 14-7 Titans lead. The momentum was completely on the Titans’ side at that point and Dallas struggled to ever get it completely back.

5. Cowboys cornerback Byron Jones wasn’t just going to stand back and allow Tennessee players to celebrate on the star. After intercepting Dak Prescott in the end zone late in the first quarter, Titans safety Kevin Byard ran to midfield. After standing on the Cowboys’ star logo, he was joined there by teammates and started dancing. Jones immediately ran over and pushed Byard and a few of his teammates off the logo. “Yeah, that’s a little bit of disrespect,” said former Cowboy and current Monday Night Football broadcaster Jason Witten. “They’re driving the ball down the field. Nice play by Byard, but I don’t know that you want to do that. Hey, I’m all in favor of the touchdown celebrations; I think it’s good for the game. But, hey, look: He’s in his third year, OK? Do it about five more years, and then, you know, get seven or eight interceptions a year, maybe you can do it at that point. But until then, I’d probably stay away from the star.”

Wholesale Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys Free Shopping From USA

Tampa Bay Buccaneers sources insist quarterback Jameis Winston’s $20.9 million fifth-year option will have no bearing on whether he plays again this season.Winston was benched last week after throwing four interceptions against the Cincinnati Bengals, and Ryan Fitzpatrick was inserted back in the starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Tampa Bay is one game behind in the NFC’s wild-card chase, and it will do what it believes is best at the quarterback position, without being concerned about any potential injury for Winston that would guarantee the $20.9 million on his contract for next season, sources said.

Buccaneers officials continued to insist last week that they are far more concerned about making the playoffs than Winston’s fifth-year option. In four games and three starts this year, Winston has thrown 10 interceptions. The Bucs (3-4) are 1-2 in games he has started in 2018.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been benched. … It’s humbling,” said Winston, a Heisman Trophy winner in 2013 and the first overall draft pick in 2015. “It’s something I can learn from and grow from, and it just adds to the story. Every year my job is to get better and better, and right now, I’m not getting the job done. I have been replaced and I’m moving forward.”

Neither Winston nor Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter can pinpoint what exactly has caused Winston to struggle.

“If I knew exactly why, then I’d do everything I could to try to fix it. We wouldn’t be where we’re at right now,” Koetter said this past week. “It’s just becoming a little bit too much of a trend and when it becomes that much of a trend … that’s the main thing that’s holding us back right now.”

Winston served a three-game suspension to start the season for a violation of the NFL’s personal conduct policy, stemming from an alleged groping incident involving a female Uber driver in Arizona in 2016.

The Bucs went 2-1 in those games with Fitzpatrick at the helm, as he led the NFL with 1,230 passing yards and became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 400 yards in three consecutive weeks. Fitzpatrick struggled in a 48-10 loss to the Bears in Week 4, and after Tampa Bay’s bye the following week, the team decided to install Winston as the starter in Week 6 against the Falcons.

Wholesale Washington Redskins Jerseys Outlet From USA

Sitting at 5-2 atop the NFC East, the Washington Redskins are in prime position for a playoff run at the season’s midway point. Of the upcoming matchups, three are against NFC East opponents, and another two are in the NFC South. These games are sandwiched between a matchup with the Houston Texans who look to be primed for a run of their own. Realistically, the Redskins could finish this upcoming slate 4-2. However, head coach Jay Gruden will need his team to stay healthy, which has been a major issue this year, especially on offense.

These injury concern will continue into the week 9 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The Redskins have already ruled out three key players ahead of the Sunday’s game, all of whom are important to the offense. Left tackle Trent Williams will be out with a lingering thumb issue, and at this point, it’s unclear how long he will remain on the sideline. Backup Ty Nsehke will once again step into the starting rotation after seeing considerable snaps over the past two seasons. He was on the field late in 2016 while Williams was serving a four-game suspension.

Running back Chris Thompson will also miss Sunday’s game as he continues to recover from the rib injury suffered against the Saints. Thompson has been in and out of the lineup over the past weeks as he has struggled to return to health. With him out for at least a week, the Redskins will rely on Kapri Bibbs to back up Adrian Peterson. Finally, Jamison Crowder will miss his fourth-straight game due to an ankle injury. The passing game has slowed down without him in the lineup as Alex Smith has failed to top 200 yards in three straight weeks. The Redskins offense does have both Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson suiting up each week, but Crowder’s absence puts extra pressure on Smith.

These three absences will definitely limit the offense, but Washington’s defense should actually be in a far better state. The addition of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will shore up the safety spot, and the return of Quinton Dunbar. The cornerback has missed the past two games due to a nerve injury in his shin that made it extremely painful to run.

While the Atlanta Falcons are definitely healthier than the Redskins, Dan Quinn’s team will still be without two starters. Cornerback Robert Alford and placekicker Matt Bryant will not play this week due to injuries of their own. Alford is still ailing from the ankle injury he’s been dealing with in recent days while Bryant is still recovering from the hamstring injury he acquired three weeks ago in a game against Tampa Bay.

The Redskins and Falcons will face off this Sunday as Jay Gruden’s team looks to continue the winning streak. Kickoff is currently set for 1:00 p.m. EST.
