NFL Insiders predict: Week 6 upsets, flops, declining vet QBs, more

Our NFL Insiders predict Week 6’s biggest upsets and fantasy flops and sleepers. Plus: Should Pittsburgh fans be worried about Ben Roethlisberger? Are the Packers the best one-loss team?

Yates: Mike Evans, WR, Buccaneers. By no means am I benching him, but let’s not overlook the matchup Evans draws this week against Arizona. Cornerback Patrick Peterson has been remarkable, holding primary duties in slowing down Marvin Jones Jr., T.Y. Hilton, Dez Bryant, Pierre Garcon and Alshon Jeffery to a combined total of 13 catches, 135 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season. Evans will have his hands full in Week 6.

Even though the Rangers held an 11-7 advantage in shots, it was the Blues who went into the first intermission enjoying a 2-1 advantage. Gunnarsson opened the scoring at 15 seconds with his second of the season, a wide-open wrist shot from the slot.

Mika Zibanejad tied the game 2:07 later with his fifth of the season on the power play.

New York was credited with six of the nine shots on goal following Zibanejad’s goal, but it was the Blues who went ahead on Schenn’s second of the season at 13:30 when the center banked Paul Stastny’s rebound off goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

“I went top shelf,” Schenn said. “Sometimes you are lucky.”

Benefiting a team that has started the season without Patrik Berglund (left shoulder), Jay Bouwmeester (left ankle), Robby Fabbri (left knee), Zach Sanford (left shoulder) and Cheap China Jerseys Alexander Steen (left hand) due to injuries, the Blues employed a tighter brand of hockey Cheap Discount Jerseys in a second period in which neither team scored and St. Louis had the two best opportunities.

Bears LB Jerrell Freeman saves choking man at airport

A meal at the Austin airport quickly turned into a matter of life or death for Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman at the Austin airport Sunday.

While awaiting a brisket sandwich from an airport restaurant, Freeman saw a man in distress nearby. Freeman thought the man may have lost a child, but when a woman ran to the man and tried the Heimlich maneuver Freeman recognized the man was choking.

Despite exceptional play over eight seasons, the Clippers center has never been named an All-Star, so he expected more of the same in 2017. He was so sure of the fact that he actually planned a trip to Hawaii, which he had to cancel once he discovered the news.

After practice on Thursday, I had my trip to Hawaii ready to go. I was super excited about it, Jordan told ESPN’s The Undefeated. I was waiting for this one last little thing [All-Star announcement]. I was leaving at 6 in the morning [of Feb. 16] and was ready to rock. Someone texted me and said, ‘Hey, you got to cancel that trip to Hawaii.’ I was like, ‘No, this is done. This is set. What’s up?’

I was thinking that they would have known at practice if I made it or not. They didn’t say nothing at practice, so I was like, ‘Cool, I didn’t make it. I’m about to set my trip up.’

Jordan went on to tell The Undefeated about his Cheap Discount Jerseys emotions toward making it for the first time. He said he had essentially given up on the idea of ever Cheap Custom Jerseys making it to the game. Last year was especially strange as he was named All-NBA First Team, but not an All-Star.

Boulware had led Clemson with 116 tackles last season and had 11 1/2 tackles for loss and four sacks.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Thursday Boulware will probably always play with a chip on his shoulder.

“If he had been taken in the first round, he would have rolled Cheap Discount Jerseys in with a chip on his shoulder. That’s just kind of who Ben is,” Swinney told reporters at the annual annual Prowl and Growl Tour in Greenville, S.C., via the Post and Courier. “But he’s a football player. He shines between the lines.

“There are always guys bigger, taller, faster and all that stuff but there’s very few that are going to play better. That has never changed for him. In his entire life playing football from peewee to middle school to high school to college, it’s not going to be any different at the next level. He’ll be just fine.”

Boulware was a twoyear starter at Clemson and a defensive captain. The knock on him coming out of Clemson is that he isn’t athletic enough to succeed at the next level. But it’s his intangibles that make him a coach’s dream. He was actually so excited to get to work, he showed up at Bank of America Stadium an hour and a half early to beat Charlotte traffic, then took a nap in his car until it was time to go.

Savage was the only QB draft pick in the first three years of the Bill O’Brien regime. But he’s a fourth-round flyer who was limited with an elbow injury late last season. He has little chance to provide legitimate results.

Watson, on the other hand, is a weapon the Texans haven’t had at quarterback, since, well, ever.
