The last time there was only one unbeaten team through the first four weeks of the season was 2010

In a statement, the NFL said “the comments are just plain wrong and disrespectful to the exceptional female reporters and all journalists. They do not reflect the thinking of the league.”

In a conference call with reporters Thursday, league spokesman Joe Lockhart said the NFL has further plans to get involved in the situation.

Dannon, which had an endorsement deal with Newton through its Oikos yogurt, issued a statement Thursday that it would “no longer work with him.”

“We are shocked and disheartened at the behavior and comments of Cam Newton towards Jourdan Rodrigue, which we perceive as sexist and disparaging to all women,” the statement read. “It is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to fostering equality and inclusion in every workplace. It’s simply not ok to belittle anyone based on gender.

Butker responded to his first-half miss Monday night by drilling three field goals in the second half, the last a go-ahead 43-yarder with 8 seconds left that helped Kansas City beat the Washington Redskins 29-20 and remain the only unbeaten team in the NFL.

“I didn’t have butterflies. I felt confident,” said Butker, who was claimed off the Carolina practice squad to replace injured kicker Cairo Santos. “I knew it was going to come down to a field goal. I felt pretty calm. I was excited; I wasn’t nervous.”

The Chiefs (4-0) put an exclamation point on the win when linebacker Justin Cheap Jerseys Outlet Shop Houston picked up a fumble as the Redskins (2-2) were trying to keep the game alive and returned it for a game-ending touchdown.

The last time there was only one unbeaten team through the first Cheap Jerseys Promo Code four weeks of the season was 2010, when the Chiefs were the final team standing. They went on to win the AFC West.

I wish we could have scored more points offensively

The Super Bowl champions rebounded from a 33-30 loss to Carolina, despite Brady turning the ball over twice — on his first interception in eight regular-season games and a fumble on one of Tampa Bay’s three sacks.

On a night when the offense gained 402 yards but only got in the end zone once, Brady lauded the defense, which slowed the Bucs down just enough to get the victory.

“They kept us in it all night,” Brady said. “I wish we could have scored more points offensively, but defense really held their own.”

Neither of Brady’s turnovers led to points for the Bucs (2-2), who were was unable to do much offensively until the fourth quarter, when their comeback bid was hindered by two missed field goals.

Max Browne, QB, Pittsburgh — Browne had a monster game against Rice as the 6-5, 230-pound senior threw for 410 yards and four touchdowns on 28-of-32 passing in a 42-10 win over Cheap Jerseys NBA China the Owls. After getting benched last week, Browne nearly matched his passing total through Pitt’s first four games.

Bradley Chubb, DE, North Carolina State — Chubb has been a one-man wrecking crew all season and added two sacks and 3 1/2 tackles for loss in a 33-25 win over Syracuse. The 6-4, 275-pound senior and first-round prospect now has 5 1/2 sacks on the year. Wolfpack linebacker Jerod Fernandez, a 6-foot, 224-pound senior, added a game-high 14 tackles in the win.

Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia — Chubb, and his backfield-mate Sony Michel, helped the Bulldogs cruise to a 41-0 win over Tennessee. Chubb, a 5-10, 225-pound senior, ran for 109 yards on just 16 carries while Michel, a 5-11, 215-pound senior, had 11 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown as Georgia Cheap Jerseys NFL Wholesale completed just seven passes in the rout.

Ezekiel Elliott tells critics to ‘shut up’

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has gotten off to a slow start this season, but says it has nothing to do with his foot speed.

When asked by a reporter if he has lost a step this year he was blunt with his answer.

Elliott has rushed for 192 yards and one touchdown through three games in 2017, but he is averaging a mere 3.5 yards per carry which is well down from his 5.1 yards a rush he averaged as a rookie.

He had a career-worst 8 yards on nine carries in the Cowboys’ Week 2 loss to the Broncos and apart from a 30-yard run in the win over the Cardinals on Monday Night Football Elliott rushed for 50 yards on 21 carries. He’ll try to break out against a Rams defense that ranks fourth-worst against the rush.

The Falcons have defeated the Bills in four straight — their longest Cheap Hockey Jerseys Youth winning stretch against Buffalo in franchise history. The Falcons are also 4-1 all-time at home against Buffalo, with the lone loss coming way back in 1973.

Despite its record, Atlanta has looked shaky at times. Matt Ryan is tied for fourth in yards passing, and running back Devonta Freeman already has four touchdowns, but the defense has allowed 330.7 yards per game.

Luckily for Falcons fans, offense isn’t Buffalo’s strength. Atlanta has a great opportunity to add another win against the Bills.

— What are the odds … the Cowboys win a ninth straight regular-season home game?

Coming of a big road victory over the Cardinals, the Cowboys look to extend their home winning streak, tied for fourth-longest in team history, against the Rams. The last time Dallas won Cheap International Soccer Jerseys nine straight was from November 1975 to November 1976.

Cam Newton apologizes for response to female reporter

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton on Thursday night apologized via video on social media for what he called an “extremely degrading and disrespectful” choice of words in response to a female reporter’s question the day before.

The video came about nine hours after a spokesperson for Dannon Oikos Yogurt said the company no longer would use the 2015 NFL MVP in its commercials and advertisements and would begin pulling those immediately.

“I think the thing that we have seen in watching EJ Manuel is he’s running the same offense that Derek Carr was running,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday. “So, it’s not like they have a different offense for Manuel. He’s running the Oakland Raider offense, so we’ll prepare for their offense, probably try to have an understanding of what he does well. They are both mobile; Derek Carr can really move, too. So, it’s not like you’re talking about two guys that aren’t mobile. They’re both mobile quarterbacks.”

Del Rio initially said after the game that Carr was suffering from back Cheap Football Practice Jerseys spasms and did not believe the injury would be a long-term issue. But further tests on Monday revealed the nature of the injury.

“The MRI wasn’t conclusive, so they did a CAT scan and that’s where it was determined that there was a problem,” Del Rio said. “He did the CAT scan after this morning, like this Cheap Heat Jerseys afternoon. This all just happened. The timeline was, first the X-ray yesterday, doesn’t look like anything. Then the MRI this morning, still looks good. Then, let’s be sure because we didn’t have a real good look at this area, so the CAT scan revealed the problem.”

The Jaguars have shown flashes of good and bad this season

Jackson: “When he came in, in 2004, we had Ryan [Clark]. Ryan kind of brought him along, and he could lean on Ryan to get him lined up, settle him down. That was his right-hand man. By the time 2006 came around, we go to Adam Archuleta. You could just tell the whole year Sean was like, ‘I’m only making X amount, and you paid him to be the highest-paid safety in the league?’ He was nowhere in the same stratosphere as Sean. That offseason Sean made up his mind he was going to be the best in the league. He saw we had just drafted LaRon [Landry]. At first there was tension between him and LaRon, then Sean took the next step and put LaRon under his wing. That’s when he started to grow. He had seen how Adam was to him and how he acted, and it was like one of those a-ha moments.”

Cornerback Jimmy Smith (Achilles) and nickelback Lardarius Webb both missed practice Wednesday, but the Ravens are deep in the secondary. Rookie first-round pick Marlon Humphrey has earned more playing time, and undrafted rookie Jaylen Hill can fill the nickelback role after returning from a hamstring injury. Smith, however, has been Baltimore’s top defensive player this season. — Jamison Hensley

The Jaguars have shown flashes of good and bad this season, and the defense is no exception. The pass rush has generated a league-best 18 sacks through four weeks, but the Cheap Basketball Jerseys UK rushing defense has allowed a league-worst 5.7 yards per rush.

Tackling has been an issue for the Chargers’ defense so far in 2017. It has allowed 2.6 yards per rush after first contact, the worst in the NFL. To put it in perspective, the Broncos Cheap Bruins Jerseys have allowed 2.4 yards per rush overall.

Butker’s field goals send Chiefs to 29-20 win over Redskins

After Harrison Butker missed the first field-goal attempt of his NFL career, Chiefs coach Andy Reid walked over to the rookie and prepared to instill a little bit of confidence.

“He said: `I got it. I got it. I was just off a tad,” Reid recalled of their brief exchange. “He kind of gives you that feeling that everything’s going to be OK.”

Better than just “OK.”

It was awesome to watch Brady erase a 25-point deficit against Atlanta, but the Patriots’ version of the Super Bowl hangover is that they haven’t solved all the problems that allowed the Falcons to build a 28-3 lead in the first place. In a copycat league, playoff contenders such as Chiefs, Texans and Panthers have learned that the way to beat the Patriots is to outscore them by being as versatile and multiple as New England would like to be.

Malcolm Butler and Stephon Gilmore haven’t been close to the dominant cornerback duo they were expected to be. Veteran safeties Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung have looked lost in key situations. In other words, the Patriots are being abused on the back end the way Brady rips apart other teams’ secondaries.

Brady’s mental and physical fortitude can’t be taken for granted. He can Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys only prop up such a one-sided team so much. At some point frustration Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys will set in, and such emotions can even get to a competitor of his unprecedented level.

The Patriots can fix their defense, but it won’t be easy given the fundamental nature of the problems. At the very least, they need to make things a little less hard on Brady.
