Ravens kicker Justin Tucker doesn’t have the career longevity of Matt Stover yet, but he just surpassed him in a career achievement.

Tucker has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November. It’s his fourth time earning the award and a testament to how effective he’s been during his six seasons.

Stover (13 years played) and safety Ed Reed (12 years) won it three times during their careers.

It’s the third time that Tucker has won the award in the month of November; he got it in September last year, November 2014 and November 2013. While some kickers struggle with the elements and colder November temperatures, Tucker thrives.

Tucker hit all eight of his field-goal attempts in three games this month. He hit 49- and 53-yard field goals in the Ravens’ 23-16 win over the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football.

With the Ravens offense struggling overall (ranked 31st in the league), Tucker has been a primary scoring weapon.

His 23 converted field goals are eighth-most in the NFL, and his 88.5 success rate is 12th-best (he’s missed three of his 26 attempts, but just one since Week 4).

The Ravens special teams unit is starting to get the kudos it deserves, and it may lead to another Pro Bowl appearance for the Wolfpack.

On Wednesday, punter Sam Koch was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. One day later, Tucker was honored.

With Tucker about to kick against the Detroit Lions this Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium, it’s a reminder of one of his best career days and most impressive kicks.

On Monday Night Football, Dec. 16, 2013, Tucker accounted for all 18 of the Ravens’ points with six field goals, including a 61-yard game-winning bomb with 38 seconds left. That kick still stands as the longest of his six-year career and it’s the most kicks he made in one game.

“Looking back, I don’t really put any weight on any kicks in retrospect, but I will say I’m glad I made it,” Tucker said Wednesday.

“I’m glad we were able to have a good night on Monday night. That’s why you play the game; to go into Monday Night Football, have a big night and get a win with your teammates.”

The Ravens’ productive special teams unit received another honor Thursday.

A day after punter Sam Koch was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his contributions toward the team’s victory over the Houston Texans on Monday, kicker Justin Tucker was announced as the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for November.

It was Tucker’s fourth monthly award, the most in franchise history. Former Ravens kicker Matt Stover and safety Ed Reed had each been recognized with monthly awards three times.

Tucker went 8-for-8 on field-goal attempts in November. That included a 3-for-3 performance in Monday’s victory over the Texans.

For the season, Tucker is 23-for-26 on field-goal attempts. His misses are from 58 yards, 62 yards and a 46-yard attempt that was blocked.

Youth Tennessee Titans Marcus Mariota Nike Light Blue Game Jersey

Youth Tennessee Titans Marcus Mariota Nike Light Blue Game Jersey

Someone who doesn’t watch Marcus Mariota on a daily basis would almost have to conclude he’s in regression, halfway through his third season in the NFL.

He’s 27th in the NFL in passing yards and has six touchdown passes against five interceptions. He has a quarterback rating of 85.4, which ranks 23rd among starters. He’s way off last season’s production pace and is only superior in one area, completing 63.2 percent of his passes vs. 61.2 percent in 2016.

But he’s better. This will be a difficult argument to make if the numbers don’t make a jump in the second half, which the 5-3 and AFC South co-leading Titans will begin Sunday at home against 3-5 Cincinnati. It is based right now strictly on the “eye test,” a mysterious evaluation wholesale nfl authentic jerseys device normally invoked by college basketball and football selection committees when needed to justify controversial choices.

One drive from Sunday’s 23-20 win over the Ravens, and one play in particular on that drive, lend data to the belief. Mariota had just committed a mistake that let Baltimore back into the game. He sailed a third-and-4 pass to Rishard Matthews, into the hands of Ravens safety Eric Weddle.

Matthews was covered closely, Weddle was helping over the top and the pass never should have been thrown. The Titans were up 16-6 in the fourth quarter, and it was almost like their second-half futility to that point – 13 plays, 39 yards, one first down – frustrated Mariota enough to take a needless risk.

This is not helping the argument, is it?

Ah, but the follow-up to that play does. Mariota reacted as he always does to mistakes. As he does to most of what he encounters.

“Things don’t get to Marcus,” Titans tight end Delanie Walker said afterward.

“He doesn’t let things like that affect him, that’s one thing about him,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said of Mariota. “It never has.”

On the next, absolutely critical possession with the lead now at 16-13, Mariota started things with a slant to Matthews, covered closely again with safety help nearby. It was batted away. Too risky? Maybe. A statement that the pick didn’t rob Mariota of his aggression? Definitely.

He picked up third-and-3 on a quick swing pass to Derrick Henry. Two plays later on second-and-7, Mariota did what winning NFL quarterbacks have to do.

Offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie called a play to take advantage of a Cover 2 look – two safeties deep – from the Ravens, a second-and-long tendency of theirs. Cover 2 means the middle of the field is open. By contrast, Cover 1 (man to man with one safety deep) and Cover 3 (three defenders splitting the deep part of the field in thirds) mean the middle is “closed.”

The Ravens tried to disguise their coverage. Safety Tony Jefferson was the only safety deep as Mariota surveyed the defense. Weddle was close to the line of scrimmage, at linebacker depth, looking like he might be assigned to cover Walker man-to-man on the play. That would not be an ideal matchup (though throwing to Walker in any situation is usually a good bet).

A half-second before the snap, Weddle bailed and took half of the deep part of the field. Jefferson had the other half. Cover 2. Middle of the field open. Linebacker C.J. Mosley had man coverage on Walker underneath.

Mariota saw it and exploited it, with rushers in his face, a bang-bang read and precise throw that went for 25 yards and set the Titans up for the touchdown to ice the game. It had to be precise – Jefferson was there to pop Walker as he gathered the ball. Even when the diagnosis and execution are there, throwing windows are often tiny in the NFL.

“It was just perfect,” Walker said of the play. “That whole drive, Marcus put us in great situations. He’s the heart of this offense.”

It was just one play on one possession. But it was the vision of a seasoned quarterback rising to a pressure moment. He did the same countless times last season. But he also has more control at the line this season and made a key check on the next play – diagnosing man coverage – to get DeMarco Murray 17 yards on a swing pass.

“He just took control of it,” Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan said.

That’s called progress. You can’t find it yet in the numbers, which have been influenced by a hamstring that cost Mariota a game and left him gimpy in two others, and by a sputtering rushing attack. But you can see it if you look closely enough, and Titans coaches are probably going to have to let Mariota show it more in the second half.

Vincent makes his choice, headed to LSU

Vincent makes his choice, headed to LSU

order wholesale jersey

On the heels of a spring filled with offers from top programs from around the country, four-star cornerback Kary Vincent closed the door on his recruitment with an emphatic commitment to LSU wholesale jerseys.

The announcement came via a video reveal he released on Sunday evening.

For a while it seemed as though he was considering a few other serious contenders like Texas, Florida State and Ohio State, but that was all window dressing around the true centerpiece in his collection of suitors.

“Four months ago I took my first visit here, and that’s really when I committed,” he said. “It was really about my gut feeling; it’s the home feeling I have with these guys and these coaches. I really believe in and know that the people here are what I need to progress in all aspects of my life as a person and a player.”

Vincent’s speed and ability to read the game make him a valuable asset as a shark in the secondary. He seamlessly peels off his coverage to where the play flows and is as strong making a play on a ball in the air as he is willing to step up and make a tackle.

He expects that his ability to cover that much ground is what will make him a strong contributor early on with the Tigers’ defense.

“What Coach (Dave) Aranda has explained to me and from what I have seen, he plays to the players that he has,” he said. “He sets up his defense based on the skills that his players have. He told me that he plans to use me in the same way that (they) used Tyrann Mathieu. I can thank my father for that, he’s my DB coach but I’m real versatile, I can play anywhere on the field.”

Vincent’s relationship with Aranda mesh jersey wholesale and the entire staff was crucial in his level of comfort with the program. Following his recruitment, he is seemingly more familiar with the entire Tigers staff than most other recruits are with just one coach from any given program.

“Coach (Les) Miles and me were in real close contact,” Vincent said. “He texts me all the time. Ultimately Coach (Corey) Raymond – the relationship that I have with him, even Coach (Bradley) Peveto, Coach (Ed Orgeron) and Coach Aranda, all those guys are so welcoming and I know that it’s the right place for me to be.”

The Port Arthur, Texas, product had very positive things to say about his relationship with Miles and has moved past the drama of a year ago surrounding his future as head coach wholesale sports jersey. Vincent thinks how Miles and company have been assembling this year’s recruiting class speaks volumes for the future of the staff and program.

“I’ve talked to him about it, I had concerns at first, but I believe that he is going to be here for a long time,” Vincent said. “I don’t see any reason why he wouldn’t be. I’m real excited about the class we’re putting together – it’s already crazy with the guys that we have now.

“If people are wowed now by what we have, they’re going to be real excited about what’s to come, because we’re just getting started.”

If Vincent’s engagement on social media is any indication, he should be a useful addition to LSU’s efforts landing a few more top-tier recruits to round out an increasingly impressive class. LSU’s is already a top-ten group in the Rivals.com team rankings buy wholesale jerseys.

“I’m going after Marvin Wilson and I have to get Todd Harris and K’Lavon Chaisson from North Shore,” he said. “I’m going to get them.”

Despite the fact that Vincent has been in the fold with LSU for some time, that may not be enough to remove all doubt he’ll stay committed to the Tigers. He said that he still plans on taking official visits in the fall, but that he has no intention of flipping to another program.

“I’m 100% committed to my school, and that’s LSU,” he said. “I’ve talked to many people that have gone on now in the league and they just say that they wish they would have seen everything. I’m committed to LSU, I’ll be going to LSU, but it’s a wonderful opportunity to take visits and I would be crazy to miss it.”

There’s a large magnetic board in Mitch Kupchak’s office containing the names of every player on the Laker roster, and what grabs him every morning is the name that’s missing.

“Not seeing him up there is not a great feeling,” said the Laker general manager. “But I mean, really. We had him for 20 years. You can’t expect that. We’re thankful we had him that long.”

Kobe Bryant is no longer in the building or on the board, and as Kupchak said, the Lakers will suffer if only from the loss of an icon. In the past, the franchise had an astonishing ability to follow one successful era with another, and the question now is this: Is Kobe’s successor already on the roster?

If you haven’t noticed, he flipped the vacancy switch on his way out the door.

“He’s gone,” said Kupchak, “and it opens a new chapter new jersey wholesale.”

The search started in earnest Friday at the Samsung Summer League and intensifies Saturday when Brandon Ingram, who has the highest star ceiling on the roster, is matched against the Sixers and Ben Simmons, putting the draft’s top two picks on the floor. As summer league games go, this is must-see TV.

The Sixers took Simmons over Ingram because they (and other scouts) felt Simmons had better franchise-player qualities. But Ingram doesn’t fit the mold of a booby prize, more like Simmons is 1A and Ingram 1B. That’s how the Lakers see it after witnessing a few scrimmages and his Summer League debut against the Pelicans. Ingram was very versatile on the floor, had a nice off-the-dribble game and finished with 12 points and four rebounds. Kupchak raves about Ingram’s basketball IQ and readiness.

“He’s got a presence on the floor,” Kupchak said. “He’ll handle the ball. He’ll direct people around. He’s got an uncanny knack for anticipation.”

Unlike Kobe, Ingram won’t have the luxury of breaking in with a teammate at the level of Shaquille O’Neal or on a winning team. While next season likely won’t be 17-win miserable as the one just completed, the Lakers are young and without an All-Star. Ingram must therefore fight against the effects of possibly losing a string of games, and the occasional poor performance, although his makeup — secure and laid-back youth sports jerseys wholesale— suggest he’ll be mature enough to cope with it.

Also, he isn’t attracting the same soaring level of expectations as Kobe did as a 17-year-old straight from high school. So there will be a comfortable learning period where he can rebound from mistakes and also gain weight, which is his only obvious flaw.
