NFL power rankings 2017, Week 9: Big trades give a few teams renewed hope

There really wasn’t a single thing shocking about Week 8. The teams at the top of the rankings a week ago all got wins and the teams at the bottom got losses.

Asked if he is surprised by the trade, Brady said, “Well, this is the time of year where we’ve been part of a lot of trades, our team has, over the years. Again, as players, we try to show up to work every day doing the best we can do, and a lot of other things take care of themselves.

“When other teams want good players, whether it’s coming to our team or Cheap Cycling Jerseys leaving our team, those are the types of opportunities that present themselves; they come up. Like I said, he’s been a great teammate and a great friend and he always will be. I want nothing but the very best for him.”

Another day, another supposedly “official” ruling in the case of the Ezekiel Elliott suspension. On Monday night, a judge denied a request for an injunction, and the most-discussed six-game suspension ever for violating the league’s personal conduct policy was apparently back on, though I feel like we’ve been here before.

But at this point, is there really anything for ESPN or Hill and Smith to gain by continuing on with the show? It’s clear Hill has no interest in “sticking to sports” and doesn’t want to be muzzled when it comes to speaking out about what’s going on in the country. ESPN obviously doesn’t want the repeated headache of having to deal with the fallout from Hill’s political opinions. It’s clear many people — fans, media members, elected officials — have made Hill a target. Every single word she says or tweets will be dissected and twisted and magnified. Just like Miller said, is this (at least partially) being done because Hill is now attached to the SportsCenter brand? It would be tough Cheap Hockey Jerseys to argue otherwise.

Ten of the 12 games Sunday went under the total.

“The Bears made our day,” Salmons of the Westgate said. “Everything was on Atlanta. For us to have a good day, we had to have the Bears.”

Underdogs cooled off in the late games, with all four favorites covering the spread, capped by the Dallas Cowboys’ 19-3 win over the New York Giants. Roughly two hours before kickoff, the MGM sportsbooks took a six-figure bet on the Cowboys -4. Shortly after, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was ruled out and the point spread shot to Dallas -6 at several sportsbooks.

“The afternoon games did not go as nicely as the morning games,” a manager for Caesars Palace sportsbook told ESPN in an email.

Ten of the 12 games Sunday went under the total.

Roberts personally interviewed Elliott’s former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, by whom the Cowboys running back was accused of domestic violence. Roberts told the NFL about her findings but the league chose not to include them in its final report and suspension letter on Aug. 11, per the Star-Telegram.

Also, a fellow NFL investigator — Lisa Friel, the NFL’s special counsel for investigations, reportedly barred Roberts from attending a meeting with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell Cheap Cycling Jerseys where Friel recommended a six-game suspension for Elliott to Goodell and other NFL executives.

Roberts’ recommendation of no suspension was essentially ignored and she was not Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys involved in the decision-making of the suspension despite playing a big role in the 13-month investigation.
