Even players who have been protesting most of the season stood for the anthem this week, including the Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, who stood before Thursday night’s game. Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding Yasmani Grandal Jersey hands with soldiers and stood with teammates for the anthem for the first time since President Trump criticized players for protesting.

This is coming from a player who was the subject of a two-month NFL probe that concluded he used physical force against Holder in at least four instances during the altercation on May 13, 2014, including one which caused her to land on a futon that was covered with at least four semi-automatic rifles.

Hardy should have stood in front of those reporters and expressed how thankful he is that his suspension had been reduced from 10 games to four by an arbitrator.

It has been tempting just about every year of late to pick the Buccaneers as the team that will break through in the NFC. Is this the year that it actually will happen, in QB Jameis Winston’s third season? Winston certainly has the receivers. The arrival of WR DeSean Jackson provides a big-play element that could make the Tampa offense very good.

And it’s not like he’s all alone in terms of getting the Saints motor running. The combo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram posted a historical season in 2017.

Game Tyler Higbee Jersey The ability of the Saints to win in multiple ways is what really differentiates them. Their running backs are even complementary, a lethal combination who can beat you by grinding out yards between the tackles and also explode in the passing game. Kamara and Ingram don’t have a tell when they line up, they can move around and they are so difficult to defend. The Saints offensive line might be the real differentiator here.

The Panthers are only one season removed from making a run at an unbeaten regular season and reaching the Super Bowl. Why does that seem like such ancient history now? Cam Newton first must prove he’s healthy, then regain something resembling his previous MVP form for the Panthers to matter again.
