Youth Devin Booker Jersey
I don’t even know how to describe this bullshit blocking technique Compton tried, but needless to say it didn’t work well at all. Compton was way too aggressive trying to take on Peppers who was already at an advantage because of his width. Peppers didn’t even need some kind of great move to get around Compton, he just got off the ball and turned the corner so fast that Cousins had barely finished his drop back, before he had to take a step backwards to avoid him.
Peppers’ overzealousness trying to get to Cousins as quickly as possible did indeed keep Cousins from being able to make that throw down the field to DJax, for what might have been the easiest touchdown pass all season. But it also had him just out of control enough to where he couldn’t change directions to sack Cousins after he side-stepped him. Luckily for the Packers, Matthews was there to clean up Peppers’ mess and take Cousins down for a sack and that loss of 12 yards.
The Cardinals will find out their opponent Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks travel to Charlotte to play the No. 1 seed Carolina Panthers. The Seahawks’ have been one of the best teams in the NFL late in the season, winning six of their last seven regular season games. They’re facing one of the few teams who have arguably been better in the 15-1 Panthers, however.
Aaron Rodgers Jersey The Patriots await the results of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ visit to the Denver Broncos. What might have been a titanic matchup a little more than a week ago doesn’t seem so big now after the Steelers’ offense suffered significant injuries against the Cincinnati Bengals. Already without running backs Le’Veon Bell and DeAngelo Williams, wide receiver Antonio Brown won’t play because of a concussion, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will likely be hindered by a shoulder injury.
A Broncos win would set up a Tom Brady-Peyton Manning AFC Championship game for the fourth time in their careers.
Against the Texans last Saturday, Poe was in for eight out of 10 third downs before the Chiefs put in their backups on defense. That underscores how they view him as much more than just a run stuffer.
Let’s be clear, for a true nose tackle in a 3-4 defense, even one that stunts and blitzes as much Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton likes him to, the name of the game is kicking ass against the running game. Poe did just that against the Chiefs, holding up well against numerous double teams and slip blocks. He also was productive with five tackles on the day.
