It’s showtime in the Bay Area

Сообщение laiyongcai92 » 03 дек 2018, 12:47

The New York Giants travel to Levi’s Stadium to face the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. It will be an epic battle between a 1-7 team and a 2-7 team. The playoffs are likely out of the question for both squads , so they will instead battle for the hearts of millions.Just kidding. I’ll probably end up playing Fortnite instead.But for those of you brave souls willing to sit through this duel of doormats, there are plenty of storylines to be had.Rookie of the Year front-runner Saquon Barkley headlines the struggling Giants. The second-overall pick in the 2018 Draft has accumulated 519 rushing yards on 111 carries, while adding 58 catches for 497 yards. Odell Beckham Jr., meanwhile, continues to be one of the elite receivers in the league. Can these two stars carry the Giants to victory?Meanwhile, the 49ers are a team battered by injury. Their starting quarterback will be Jimmy Garoppolo C.J. Beathard Nick Mullens. A 2017 undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi, Mullens shined in relief last week, completing 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns — a near-perfect quarterback rating of 151.9. He was even verified on Twitter mid-game. It came at the expense of the pitiful Oakland Raiders Womens LeGarrette Blount Jersey , however, so it remains to be seen if he can sustain that level of success.The biggest story, though, is Giants quarterback Eli Manning. In what could be his final prime time game, can he manage to create another iconic Manning face? Come chat with us as we suffer together!Unsung hero of the week: Frequent Lions nemesis turns into ally in primetime After faltering on the national stage and suffering a heartbreaking loss in Week 2, hopes were not high going into the Lions’ “Sunday Night Football” matchup against the New England Patriots, who haven’t lost back-to-back games since the 2015 season. In a pleasant surprise, the Lions came out on fire Youth Frank Ragnow Jersey , dominating the game from the first snap to the last in a bout where just about everyone shined. With that being the case, there are plenty of players to choose from for this week’s unsung hero of the week award. Naturally, I chose someone other than a Lions player. Unsung hero of the week: the refereesLast night’s game featured a lot of calls that could have been called, but weren’t. The entire night, Clete Blakeman’s crew allowed the Lions and Patriots to play aggressively on the ground and in the air. That meant good things for the Lions secondary: Their aggressive man-coverage style fairs best when the refs let them get physical (looking at you, Nevin Lawson).While the running game was what kept Tom Brady & Co. on the sidelines for much of the game, the ability of the Lions defense to play aggressively was what kept them out of the end zone while they were on the field. There were numerous times the defensive line was able to pressure or even sack Brady as a result of the good coverage downfield, with NBC’s broadcast highlighting a play where all Patriots receivers were locked up in coverage for four whole seconds. On top of that Womens Graham Glasgow Jersey , the defense was able to play to their natural tendencies. If any one play summed this up, it was when Tom Brady aired out the ball to tight end Rob Gronkowski down the right sideline. While Gronk was double covered, he had separation from Lions defenders and his size advantage means he’s never not open. The Lions defensive backs got physical in the air however, and Gronkowski was thrown off his route, missed the ball, and begged for a flag on a play where just about any other refereeing crew would’ve thrown one. One more memorable moment was when Tom Brady, facing only minimal pressure, aired a ball out down the field to no man’s land. Whether he thought a referee was a receiver or what , nobody really knows, but the ball had no business going there. After lots of deliberation, the referees correctly flagged Brady for intentional grounding in one of the weirdest scenarios of that call that you’ll ever see, and the Ford Field crowd loved it. There was a lot to love from the Lions’ performance against the Pats, and unsung hero of the week could’ve legitimately gone to about half of the active roster. However, it was great to see the Lions not get momentum shredded by referees on primetime TV as has happened in the past (coughcoughDallasCowboys).Whose optimal performance did you like from Sunday night? Let us know in the comments!
