Paul Richardson scored the game-winning touchdown for the Seahawks against the 49ers on Sunday — but the touchdown isn’t the most impressive part. It was what Richardson went through prior to making the play.
Richardson suffered a compound fracture of his right ring finger on Seattle’s opening drive of the game. His teammate Doug Baldwin told ESPN the graphic specifics.
“I don’t know if I’m allowed to tell you guys this but he dislocated his finger,” Baldwin said. “It came out of his skin and he’s sitting there bleeding, his bone is out of the skin. He goes into the locker room, sews it up and tapes it up, comes back out and scores the game-winning touchdown.”
The Texans enter this game with just a 2-6 SU and ATS record in their last eight road games per the OddsShark NFL Database.
Cincinnati was the only team in action last week that failed to record a point, getting shut out 20-0 at home against the Baltimore Ravens. The defense did an excellent job of limiting the Ravens to just 20 points on Andy Dalton’s five-turnover day. The Bengals had strung together five Alcides Escobar Jersey straight winning seasons from 2011 to 2015, but last year that streak came to an end with a 6-9-1 SU campaign. Cincinnati Frank White Womens Jersey is 3-6-1 SU and 4-6 ATS over its last 10 games.
Thursday night’s total is set at 38 points. The UNDER is 4-0 in the last four games between these two teams.
Houston and Cincinnati both put together two of the worst home performances of Week 1. Since 2007, only nine of the 83 teams that have started the season off 0-2 SU have gone on to make the postseason. Just four days removed from their dud games on Sunday, the Texans and Bengals will try to avoid this unenviable position.

NFL teams have made 30 trades since Aug. 1, more than twice the average for the same period over the previous five years. There are multiple reasons why.
Who will be the first QB to lose his starting gig? Who’s playing for a big contract next offseason? We checked in with NFL execs for their thoughts on which quarterbacks have the most to prove heading into the regular season.
Predictions! That’s right. The NFL season is mere days away, which means it’s time to zip ahead four months and tell you what will happen in 2017 so you don’t have to go to the trouble of waiting to find out.
Many players, coaches and rookies will have great years, but you’re wondering which ones will have the best years. And we’re here to tell you.
A crack panel of our experts pulled their minds together to try to predict who will win the league’s end-of-season awards. Below are the top picks for everything except MVP, which we’ll reveal in the preseason edition of our NFL MVP Poll on Wednesday. For now, you can whet your appetite with these tasty morsels.
Methodology: We tabbed the panel of 12 experts who will vote in this season’s NFL MVP poll. Each nominated their top three candidates for the six awards included below. First-place votes are worth three points, second-place votes are worth two, and third-place votes are worth one. Reminder: These are just predictions.
The most unexpected element in Week 1 for the Chiefs was the superb all-around play of rookie running back Kareem Hunt. Hunt rushed for 148 yards, caught passes for 98 more and scored three touchdowns. Priest Holmes is the only other Chiefs player to hit those numbers all in the same game. While Hunt can’t continue that pace, he can be a consistent threat for the Chiefs. “I saw probably the same thing . . . at camp every day,’’ coach Andy Reid said. “He’s a load and you know he is talented and he’s a smart kid, which helps in that position.’’

The Detroit Lions have signed punter Jeff Locke to replace the injured Kasey Redfern, who was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Locke was the Minnesota Vikings’ punter for four seasons, averaging 43.2 yards per punt before going to Indianapolis this offseason. The Colts, however, released him last month.
Elliott displayed a strong leg on field goals and kickoffs, just missing a Eric Weddle Jersey 60-yard attempt wide in the Bengals’ final preseason game. Bullock, however, had an almost perfect camp. He did not miss a kick in a preseason game until the final week and was also more consistent in B.W. Webb Jerseypractice.
The Bengals highly value their draft picks and rarely cut rookie draftees in their first year. That made waiving Elliott a difficult decision, because they knew there was a strong possibility he would be picked up by another team. But Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Bullock was the clear winner of the job.
“There’s a lot of data, a lot more data than you’re aware of,” Lewis said. “So we have to go by that or else there’s no reason to keep track of everything we do. Obviously if it was anything close, Jake would have won the job.”
A spokesperson with the La Verne Police Department confirmed that Browner was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats, but the spokesperson declined to comment on any circumstances of the arrest because of the department’s ongoing investigation.
Browner was a founding member of the Seahawks’ Legion of Boom secondary, playing for the team from 2011 to 2013. He spent the 2014 season with the New England Patriots, helping them win Super Bowl XLIX over Seattle, and then spent the 2015 season with the New Orleans Saints.
He signed with the Seahawks last offseason and tried to make the team as a safety, but he was cut in the spring and has not been signed by an NFL team since.
Browner is from Sylmar, California.

It was a really functional building that served its purpose very well, Falcons CEO and president Rich McKay said in July. We did not want to build a better Georgia Dome. That was not the object. If we would have done that, we would have renovated the Georgia Dome. We really wanted to change the game and do it for a long, long time.
The security grilled me for three hours. I had been visiting one of my plants in Windsor (Canada). Three hours! I had enough. I made a few calls. They finally let me go. I got a letter later (one dated Aug. 22, 2006) from the U.S. government apologizing. It assured me that this would not happen again.
But even today, Khan takes no chances.

Every time he has traveled since, he carries that government-issued letter, his passport, and a small handful of other important identity papers in a clear, plastic folder. It is always with him, accessible. He knows instantly, exactly where to find it in his briefcase. The letter is never folded. Eleven years later, it remains crisp. Unblemished.
Elite Mens Marvin Jones Jr Jersey
The Bears were roundly criticized after sending four picks to San Francisco to move up one spot in the draft and select Trubisky, but the UNC product’s efficient preseason suggests the overpay may have been worth it. He played his way into the starting conversation after completing more than 70 percent of his passes and posting a 3:0 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his first three preseason games.
While $45 million acquisition Mike Glennon eventually shook off enough rust to claim the team’s top spot, Trubisky will have every opportunity to push him for snaps this season. The Bears can jettison Glennon next offseason with just $4.5 million in dead cap money on the books. A comparison of their preseason performances could mean his tryout may not last long.

He participated in warm-ups inside the Giants’ practice bubble on Wednesday before going off to work on the side with a trainer. The star wide receiver then went outside with a trainer and did some light running while his teammates ran through drills. Beckham was not seen doing any full-speed sprints or running before the media left about 20 minutes into practice.

[Wednesday] was a good day, Beckham said when asked whether it’s the most he’s done since injuring the ankle 16 days ago. I don’t know about the most I’ve done.
Beckham is trying to get back in time for Sunday night’s opener in Texas against the Dallas Cowboys. He said he’s done some running and cutting, though he didn’t note whether it was at full speed. The Pro Bowler was jogging at about 60 percent on Wednesday.
The Giants are still closely monitoring his progress with the opener four days away. They have their most physical practice of the week scheduled for Thursday.
Womens Kyle Williams Jersey But his pay is far from the norm. His rough climb to the top, however, is a story many fighters can relate to.
A week before McGregor’s first fight in the UFC in April 2013, he collected a welfare check of 鈧?80 (roughly $204). This, despite the fact that he accumulated a 12-2 record as a professional fighter in Europe.

Ducks fly together, and so do the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL. On Tuesday, the Wings announced one of many themed nights scheduled for their upcoming season, and jerseys from Disney’s famous hockey movie that spawned an actual NHL team are one of them.
These jerseys, nearly identical to the movie jersey with a replica of their mascot, Slappy, instead of the famous duck, will be worn on Dec. 22 against the Toledo Walleye.
Coach Jack Del Rio typically keeps to his policy of not commenting on injuries and the Raiders are not required to file an injury report with the league until Wednesday.
— Quarterback Derek Carr had his jersey No. 4 retired Saturday night at halftime of Fresno State’s 66-0 home win win over Incarnate Word.
“I can’t tell you how much this means to me,” Carr said during a halftime ceremony. “I dreamed of this moment as a little boy, and now it’s finally happened.”
Carr holds 27 school passing records as well as 21 record in the Mountain West Conference.
But, he said, he was “very logical about it all.” Even with his rather limited knowledge of NFL football, he knew punters were drafted rarely, and that the entire league might have four or five job openings a year. He prepared himself for a handful of workouts and perhaps a few tryouts. There was no major draft party.

Lanny McDonald Limited Jersey Marrone was so discouraged after the Bucs game that he declared the first-string spot open. As of Tuesday morning, Marrone hadn’t publicly named a starter against Carolina or how snaps between Henne and Borthes would be split. The Jaguars are sensitive enough about the topic that Bortles and Henne were made off-limits to the media heading into the game.
Henne could find himself playing again in the regular season for the first time since he was benched for Bortles. But while his misfires this preseason aren’t nearly as egregious, Henne has not done anything dynamic enough to convince Jags management that sticking with Bortles through his struggles and hoping he works through them isn’t their best option.
Kansas City traded Nick Foles to Philadelphia and now is looking at Tyler Bray behind Alex Smith on the depth chart. It would be weird to see Smith and Kaepernick reunited with re-reversed roles away from the Niners, but that’s why it also makes some sense.
Elite Adam Joseph Duhe Jersey Kaepernick has some Donovan McNabb in him for Andy Reid’s offense, and Smith has a history of mentoring Kaepernick. Those relationships would be good for Kaepernick to repair his on-field reputation.
From the top, there are many teams that don’t need Kaepernick because they already have good money invested in a top-flight starters and viable No. 2 options. Then there are those owners who don’t want Kaepernick representing their organizations, period. Then there are those franchises in big markets that don’t want the media attention, and others in smaller markets that don’t want to rattle a fan base with Kaepernick’s political leanings.

News of his dismissal was not well-received by media members and former players.
It was a bit of a surprise how much loathing there is out there for Watt, but it is out there. There was a headline from Pro Football Talk: J.J. Watt has a logo now, because that guy could use some attention. On an episode of Dan Le Batard’s ESPN radio show, co-host Stugotz suggested Watt is a phony and a fraud for tweeting during NBA games that he’d prefer to spending his time working to improve himself as an athlete to the level of Kobe Bryant and Steph Curry as opposed to sitting and watching them play hoops. J.J. Watt will take any opportunity to make a story about himself, Stugotz said. Get over yourself, man. Then there was the occasion when Watt posted a text from his brother, T.J., about how 3 of the past 4 years you have been THE most dominant defensive player in the world! Like, who does that? You want to see my employee evaluation file from 2016? No, of course you don’t.

Right now, although Hayward and the Celtics have agreed to a four-year max deal worth $128 million, Boston can’t sign him outright. Even after renouncing their free agents (they’ve done that) and trading away some smaller, more expendable pieces, it seems like they must part with one key bench player. It sounds like that will be Jae Crowder, per ESPN, but Marcus Smart or Avery Bradley could still be in play. Only then will the Celtics have the cap space to ink Hayward to the deal they’ve agreed upon.
Reid made headlines last season when he knelt with then-teammate Colin Kaepernick during the national anthem in protest of perceived racial oppression in this country, but he said in April he would stand this season since the protest’s goal of creating a national dialogue had been accomplished.

Limited Mens Chris Godwin Jersey Reid stuck by his decision to stand during the national anthem this season in the wake of the racially charged violence in Charlottesville, Va. earlier in August. But after talking with Kaepernick, Reid decided to reverse his course in hopes of seeing change.
Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush continued his excellent preseason by going 8 for 9 for 92 yards and two touchdowns, including a 19-yard third-quarter touchdown to fellow rookie Noah Brown, a seventh-round pick from Ohio State. Rush’s second TD went to undrafted rookie Lance Lenoir, who caught four passes for 51 yards on the night.
Packers running back Jamaal Williams, a fourth-round pick from BYU, had just 12 yards on seven carries, but fellow rookie running back Aaron Jones fared much better in Green Bay’s win. The fifth-round pick from UTEP ran for 14 yards on three carries and had four catches for 11 yards and a second-quarter touchdown reception from Hundley.

June Jones is a head coach once again.
The well-traveled Jones will take charge of the Canadian Football League’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the team announced Thursday. He was appointed to the position by the man he replaces, Kent Austin, who also serves as the team’s vice president of football operations.
Bortles, who the Jaguars selected with the third overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, struggled during training camp and through his first two preseason games this year. Marrone said about a week ago that Bortles would have to compete with Chad Henne for the starting job.
Henne got the starting nod Thursday night against the Panthers, and the third preseason game of the year is generally thought of as the “dress rehearsal” for the season. Henne’s outing was unimpressive — in five series in the first half, he went 8 of 14 for 73 yards.
Over seven series in the second half, Bortles went 12 of 16 for 125 yards and one touchdown.
Bortles had something of a breakout season in 2015, but came crashing back to earth last year. He’s started 45 regular-season games in a row for Jacksonville.
While Bortles gets the call for Week 1, nobody will be shocked if he’s pulled in short order. Marrone obviously isn’t enthralled with him as his starter.
Dallas assumed Crawford would turn into an elite pass rusher when it rushed into this contract, which looks to have been a mistake. Crawford at signing tracked with a group of players earning around $5 million a season, and that’s where he still is. He needs to be more productive to make up the large gap between his salary and productivity.
