"When they told me he was coming back in, I started talking to him, and he was good,Wholesale China Jerseys," Gase said. "The league did their deal,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, and our trainers,NFL Jerseys China, and they cleared everything."

The Dolphins declined comment Monday on the review but said Sunday that Moore was cleared by the neurological consultant and team physician to return to the game.

"I didn't see the actual hit,http://www.airmaxfantasy.us.com/Air-Max-95-Nike-Air-Max/," Gase said. "When they come to me, I just play off of that. I didn't really know what was the exact injury and how he got hit."

Was Gase surprised Moore received clearance to return to the game so quickly?

Under a procedure in the collective bargaining agreement, the league, in consultation with the NFL Players Association, will review documents and video and interview the parties involved to determine whether the protocol was followed properly. The review doesn't mean the NFL has drawn conclusions as to whether the protocol was followed, the league said in a statement.

Moore missed only one play in Miami's 30-12 loss Sunday.

Moore was hit in the chin as he threw a pass, and the play drew a roughing-the-passer penalty on Pittsburgh's Bud Dupree. Dolphins medical staff attended to Moore on the field, and he was evaluated on the sideline by an independent neurological consultant and team physician before returning to the game.

"I just got popped," Moore said after the game. "I just needed a second there. I got checked out. I felt fine. It was more of my jaw than anything else. I felt good. I came back in and I was fine."

After returning to the game, Moore lost two fumbles and threw an interception. Coach Adam Gase didn't attribute the turnovers to any lingering health issues for Moore.

Derek Anderson, who threw two TD passes and two interceptions against the Falcons, would start if Newton isn't cleared from the concussion protocol. Anderson was 2-0 as a starter for Carolina in 2014 with both wins coming against Tampa Bay.

Carolina has won three straight NFC South titles, but is two games behind the Atlanta Falcons (3-1) one quarter of the way through the season.

"I would be naive to think that wouldn't have been the case," McDermott said. "... There's a lot of communication that goes on there, but that is the challenge that goes on as a coach."

Rivera, a former NFL linebacker with the Chicago Bears, seemed to have no problem with the hit,Wholesale Jerseys, saying "If I was playing I'd have taken the shot."

Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott,Cheap Jerseys Outlet, whose defense had finished in the top 10 in the league the past four seasons, said he expected some growing pains from his young secondary.

The Panthers removed the $13.9 million franchise tag from All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman in the offseason and turned to three rookies to help replace him, including starter James Bradberry. That appears to be a huge mistake for a team well under the NFL salary cap.

And now there's a chance they could be without Cam Newton for a while.

"I think we should be better than we are," Rivera said Monday.

Still, the Panthers aren't used to giving up 597 yards in a game.

Newton left Sunday's 48-33 loss to the Falcons in the fourth quarter with a concussion and did not return. Rivera said Newton's status for next Monday night's home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is uncertain. The Panthers visit the New Orleans Saints in another division matchup in Week 6 before a bye week.

Yep, the NFC's best team last season is reeling.

The offensive line, which was missing left tackle Michael Oher (concussion) on Sunday, has allowed 13 sacks against Newton, considered to be one of the more mobile quarterbacks in the league.

Newton has eight combined touchdowns and six turnovers so far this season. At this point last season, Newton had nine combined TDs and three turnovers

During his two seasons in Denver, the Broncos allowed 199.6 yards passing in their Super Bowl season and 185.8 yards last season. During that stretch, they held opponents to the lowest completion percentage (57.8), yards per attempt (5.99) and passer rating (74.3).

Afterward, Gary Kubiak,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, 55, stepped down as head coach with two years left on his contract, citing health concerns, and general manager John Elway hired Joseph, the Broncos' third head coach in the last four seasons and fifth in the last 10.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph on Tuesday promoted secondary coach Joe Woods to defensive coordinator, replacing Wade Phillips,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, who left for the Rams.

"Joe Woods is ready for this opportunity," Joseph said. "... No one will outwork Joe. He's got tremendous attention to detail as well as a lot of familiarity with our players. It's his time, and he's ready for it. I'm very excited to watch Joe grow as a coordinator."

Woods has a quarter-century of coaching experience including the last 13 seasons in charge of defensive backs in Denver (2015-16), Oakland (2014), Minnesota (2006-13) and Tampa Bay (2004-05).

That, along with spotty play in the trenches on offense, neutralized their pass rush and strong secondary as Denver slipped to 9-7 and missed the playoffs a year after winning Super Bowl 50.

Taking over Woods' old job is Marcus Robertson, who spent the last three seasons working with Oakland's defensive backs. Robertson has coached a decade in the NFL following a 12-year career playing safety.

The Broncos thought they could withstand losing free agents Malik Jackson to the Jaguars and Danny Trevathan to the Bears. But the loss of run-stuffer Vance Walker to a torn right ACL in training camp proved too much.

"We can have a little pity party,Nike Free Run Shoes On Sale, or we can rally together ...," Mularkey said. "And don't worry about pointing fingers. If there's anybody, just look at yourself and make sure you doing everything you're supposed to be doing before you look around."

The lowlight came late in the first half.

The Titans missed a chance at consecutive victories for the first time since the end of the 2013 season in a loss when they were dominated from start to finish. The final margin could have been so much worse if not for the defense holding the Jets to three field goals and another attempt that was missed,Cheap Jerseys Store.

If they play the final three games like they did losing to the New York Jets, that spot should be pretty safe.

NOTES: Mularkey said linebacker Derrick Morgan had season-ending surgery Monday to repair his left shoulder, while running back Dexter McCluster will need season-ending surgery in the next day or two to repair a broken left wrist. Morgan has 4 ? sacks in 10 games,Wholesale Hockey Jerseys, while McCluster ranks third in rushing and is the Titans' punt returner.

Unfortunately, the Titans still have their toughest road game left, as they visit the New England Patriots (11-2) on Sunday in a game that has been dredging up painful memories of a 59-0 loss there in 2009.

"They caught us with it, caught us uncovered,Cheap NBA Jerseys," Mularkey said.

"It's not acceptable; these will be the consequences if it happens," Mularkey said. "But I'm talking to the team, and I want them all listening, not just one guy."

The Titans' headsets went down, leaving defenders looking to the sideline for a play call. Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick noticed and got a quick snap, tossing an easy pass to an uncovered Brandon Marshall for a 69-yard TD.

Tennessee set the tone with cornerback Perrish Cox dropping a would-be interception on the fifth play for the defense. Tight end Delanie Walker followed with his first dropped pass this season on the first drive for the offense. Walker said they just didn't come ready to play.

Mularkey has just three games left this season to make his case to keep this job past the finale Jan. 3 at Indianapolis. He didn't single out any specific player Monday, instead making it clear the effort given in the Jets' loss is not what the Titans want.

Cox said they didn't know the ball was snapped. Mularkey said the Jets went straight to the line without huddling, snapping the ball just as he was trying to alert the side judge their headsets went out for a timeout. Mularkey praised defensive lineman Jurrell Casey for his effort trying to chase down Marshall.

So interim coach Mike Mularkey said Monday the Titans (3-10) have two choices after being routed 30-8 by the Jets.

The Titans' lone highlight came when rookie Marcus Mariota caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from running back Antonio Andrews late in the third quarter. That made Mariota the first player in a season to run, pass and catch a TD of 40 yards or longer since Walter Payton in 1983.

"You can see us taking some plays off," Walker said. "If that was finishing in the run game or not making the catches, you can say that's loafing and not focusing."

PUT IT IN PARKEY: After missing three field goal attempts last week, including a 46-yarder at the end of regulation that could have won the game, Browns kicker Cody Parkey bounced back in a big way. In his second game with Cleveland, Parkey was good from 51 and 45 yards out.

Browns running back Isaiah Crowell ran for 112 yards and a touchdown, and Kessler was 27 of 38 for 215 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

NEED FOR REED: With his 8-yard touchdown in the first quarter, Reed became the fastest tight end in NFL history to 200 career receptions. Reed hit the 200 mark in his 38th game, one faster than Pro Football Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow Sr., and had his fifth multi-touchdown game.

On the Cleveland side,Nike Air Max 1 Mens Shoe, center Austin Reiter injured his left knee, and tight end Randall Telfer injured his ankle.

"I felt like I've been silent long enough," Jackson said. "Whatever the response is, that's what it is, but I feel it's time for me to make a stance."

The Redskins blew a 14-0 lead and fell behind 20-17 before shutting down Cleveland's running game and taking the ball back. Linebacker Will Compton forced a fumble by fullback Malcolm Johnson

"I watch him prepare," Arians said. "I watch him coach. It has nothing to do with (my) faith. I know the guy can coach. His players aren't playing very well. They're my players, so if I'm going to fire him, I'll fire myself."

Sunday featured another special teams meltdown for the Cardinals, and Arians mounted an unsolicited, spirited defense of special teams coach Amos Jones.

Coach Bruce Arians told the players as much in the locker room after Sunday's loss.

"It's been a bad snap and hold and a kick or a punt all year,Wholesale NFL Jerseys," Arians said. "Coaches don't do any of those things. There won't be any coaching changes. Let me make that perfectly clear today. They don't snap, hold and kick. Players do those things."

"You respect the process and you come to work," Arians said. "I've been on a 3-13 team and a 7-9 team. You come to work every week. If you see guys cashing it in, you need to get rid of them."

The coach said he expects professionalism and effort from his players the remainder of the season.

Arians said his five best special teams players are on injured reserve.

The Cardinals still have special teams ace Justin Bethel,Cheap Soccer Jerseys, but his play at cornerback has not been good. Injuries pressed Bethel into the lineup and he was repeatedly burned late in the game.

Among Arians' chief challenges this week is to put together an offensive line for Sunday's game against New Orleans, Arizona's final home contest of the season.

"There's still guys there and we expect the same of them," center A.Q. Shipley said of the remaining linemen. He added, jokingly, that he "might have to move out to left tackle this week. We'll see what happens."

In addition, left tackle D.J. Humphries

"They're all competing, but he's really standing out," said Jaguars coach Gus Bradley, who fell to 14-47 in four seasons. "I like where he's at right now. I think he's playing with great competitive spirt and he's competing in his routes, he's competing in catching, he's competing in blocking."

Little went Minnesota's way Sunday,Cheap Sittched Jerseys China, but it didn't matter.

Those kinds of mistakes normally would result in a loss, especially on the road. Not against the Jaguars (2-11), who dropped their record-tying eighth consecutive game and fell to 0-6 at EverBank Field this season.

"We needed this one," receiver Adam Thielen said. "Our backs were against the wall."

Matt Asiata scored on a short touchdown run, Kai Forbath kicked four field goals and the Vikings beat the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 on Sunday,Jordan Sneakers Wholesale, winning for just the second time in nine weeks.

ZIMMER RETURNS: Vikings coach Mike Zimmer had no real issues in his first game back following eye surgery. Zimmer missed last week's game against Dallas because of a detached retina and was unsure earlier in the week whether he would be on the field or in an upstairs box. Zimmer, who needed a doctor's clearance to fly to Jacksonville, wore a patch over his right eye and had no limitations.

"With these last three weeks left and then having to live six months until you get another opportunity, I think is more fearful than counting down the days until it's over. I don't want to have to go through those six months."

Joyner is also getting the chance to make his case for the starting spot left vacant when Janoris Jenkins signed with the New York Giants as a free agent in March.

After mostly defending slot receivers since being selected in the second round of the 2014 draft, Joyner is working more on the outside during training camp.

The Rams scaled back Joyner's role from his college days in his first two seasons, putting his focus instead at nickel back. But Joyner has no issues with how he has been used.

"He's just an all-around good football player," Pruitt said.

Still, Joyner enjoys reminding Austin and everyone else that he can deliver the big hit whenever he chooses.

"You just get to let the guys know that you would have made the play, and come Sunday you do make those plays," Joyner said. "That's the fun part."

The Rams are being cautious in bringing back E.J. Gaines,Wholesale Jerseys China, who was projected to start opposite Jenkins last season before suffering a Lisfranc fracture in his foot, freeing up reps for Joyner and Coty Sensabaugh.

The Raiders recently signed right guard Gabe Jackson to a $56 million,Bruce Smith Bills Jersey, five-year extension.

"He's been a big part of us," Hudson said. "I've been here two years and he's played well. With whatever's going on, it's going to work itself out."

The news came as the Raiders' veterans began checking into the hotel in Napa where they will spend the next three weeks. The team will hold its first practice of training camp on Saturday morning.

"A lifetime of memories have been made these past three years, and I am grateful for every single one of them," Howard wrote on Instagram. "Unfortunately my time with the #Raiders has come to an end. To my OL dawgs, love y'all boys."

Penn isn't likely to get a long-term contract like those but Hudson said the veteran left tackle is important to the Raiders' plans.

However, Goldsmith said Wednesday he could work with Fabiani.

Spanos was still traveling back from Houston, where on Tuesday night he suffered a stinging defeat while still being granted the chance to leave San Diego for Los Angeles.

NFL owners voted 30-2 to allow Kroenke to build a $1.8 billion stadium in Inglewood,NFL Jerseys Outlet. The Rams are expected to play in the Los Angeles Coliseum beginning in the fall.

Faulconer and Roberts indicated that it could be difficult getting a measure on the June ballot, and that the November ballot seemed more realistic.

The Chargers have indicated in the past that they'd like a downtown stadium. But Faulconer and Roberts said that option would be more expensive and take longer.

But it's up to Spanos to decide if he wants to restart talks in San Diego with an extra $100 million from the NFL to go toward a replacement for aging Qualcomm Stadium,Wholesale NBA Jerseys China, or come to an agreement with Stan Kroenke to join the St. Louis Rams in Inglewood.

Fabiani did not respond when asked if he and Spanos had met with Kroenke on Tuesday night to discuss a deal to be either a partner or a tenant in Inglewood.

Spanos appeared stunned at a news conference in Houston on Tuesday night.

Asked the odds of getting something done, Faulconer said: "Our chances of success when we work together are astronomically better."

He caught only 132 passes in four seasons with the Vikings,Cheap Jerseys Store, but has been a first-team All-Pro twice and a second-team pick once as a returner in his four-year career.

Newhouse said he has improved his conditioning and play since McKenzie last had him on his roster.

Newhouse joins the strength of the Raiders on the offensive line. Left tackle Donald Penn,Cheap NFL Jerseys 2017, left guard Kelechi Osemele and center Rodney Hudson are coming off Pro Bowl seasons and right guard Gabe Jackson has solidified his spot.

"Kind of a good mix of old and young guys; lots of talent," Newhouse said. "Obviously, when you're protecting a quarterback as good as Derek Carr, every lineman wants that opportunity. All those things lined up and was definitely a huge reason why I chose here."

Patterson is a former first-round pick by Minnesota in 2013, who has excelled as a returner but struggled for consistency as a receiver during his career.

"I definitely embrace it," Newhouse said. "It's not something you shy from, because they're there and they're paid to get sacks. They make impact plays and you see it from afar. ... All of those division games are going to be tough, tight games with a lot of elite pass rushers coming off of the edge. It's just going to be an onus for me to step up my game."

"He knows what I bring to the table, but he also knows that I've grown as a player since then," he said. "I was only 21 when I was there and I'm a few years older now. So, I think it's a mutually beneficial situation for both of us."

"Joe Browne's professionalism, trust, and passion for the National Football League over a half-century was critical to shaping the game's image and promoting its great growth," Hall of Fame President David Baker said. "The NFL has never had a more committed and dedicated employee than Joe,Cheap NBA Jerseys China, and his immense impact on the league is immeasurable. He is the very definition of the Ralph Hay Pioneer Award."

Browne led the NFL's media relations, public affairs and community relations throughout North America and overseas. He also served as chief liaison for NFL clubs in congressional, military and government agency matters. He has worked the last 49 Super Bowls.

The honor is presented periodically to an individual who has made significant and innovative contributions to professional football.

"Joe Browne did a remarkable job representing the NFL during his extraordinary 50-year career with the league office,Jerseys NFL Cheap," Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday. "I was fortunate to break in as an NFL intern under Joe. It was a terrific education. Joe was always a fierce protector of the shield, a demanding innovator,Nike Air Max Tn Shoes For Men Sale, and he set the standard for effective sports PR. He was a mentor."

The award is named after the former owner of the Canton Bulldogs whose Hupmobile showroom was the location for the NFL's founding meeting in downtown Canton on Sept. 17, 1920. The most recent recipient was former NFL officiating chief Art McNally in 2012.

Browne was the longest-serving employee in the league office before retiring in March. He began his career as a 17-year-old college intern in 1965 and soon became a key adviser to Commissioner Pete Rozelle. In 1990,Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Shoes, Browne became the league's first vice president under Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, and was promoted five years later to senior vice president.

If the Broncos lose to Kansas City on Sunday night, the Dolphins have their first playoff spot since 2008.

Packers receiver Jordy Nelson caught seven passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns over the first two quarters while being covered mostly by Terence Newman. That went against the Vikings game plan, which called for Xavier Rhodes to cover the Packers receiver. After halftime, Rhodes handled Nelson and held him to nine yards.

A WIN-WIN SITUATION

"I don't want that next to any of our names associated with this organization and so we got that monkey off our back," coach Hue Jackson said.

Joining Carr on the sideline for the rest of the season will be Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, who, like Carr, was carted off the field Saturday with a broken right leg. Unlike the Raiders,Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Shoes For Women, though, the Titans lost their game. The 38-17 loss to the Jaguars, combined with Houston's 12-10, AFC South-clinching victory over Cincinnati, knocked Tennessee out of the playoff picture.

MIAMI RUN MACHINE

"Oh, man, he's a grinder. He's a workhorse," tight end Dion Sims said. "He goes 100 miles an hour, and that's why he's got the nickname 'Train,' because he's just going nonstop."

The Giants made the playoffs thanks to Tampa Bay's loss, and the Falcons won the NFC South. New England can wrap up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win next week against Miami. Pittsburgh can win the AFC North with a victory over the Ravens on Sunday.

At the other end of the standings, the Cleveland Browns avoided going down in infamy; they beat the Chargers 20-17 for their first victory of the season and will not join the 2008 Detroit Lions as the second team to finish 0-16.

The Dolphins inched closer to a playoff spot with the help of running back Jay Ajayi, who ran for 75 of his 206 yards during Miami's game-winning drive in overtime. The Dolphins beat the Bills 34-31.

The Browns can wrap up the top pick with a loss at Pittsburgh next week. The 49ers play Seattle.

Carr wasn't the only key quarterback to go down during Week 16 of the NFL season. And the Browns weren't the only bad team to pull out an unexpected win,Cheap Nike Shox.

The only bad thing about winning for Cleveland was that the victory loosened its grasp on next year's first pick in the draft.

MARIOTA OUT

Ajayi became the fourth player in NFL history with three 200-yard rushing games in a season. The company he joins: Earl Campbel, O.J. Simpson and Tiki Barber.

In case you missed it, here's what else happened on the NFL's second-to-last weekend:

The Vikings defense threw their game plan out for the first half and paid the price.

The Oakland Raiders stayed in the hunt for home-field advantage through the playoffs, but their 33-25 victory over the Colts came at a cost. Their quarterback, Derek Carr, was carted off the field with a broken right leg and is out for the rest of the season.

"That's what he was supposed to do the whole game," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said after Minnesota's 38-25 loss. "Someone decided they wouldn't do that."

The one-win Niners,Cheap Jerseys Wholesale, who would've received the first pick had they and the Browns finished tied with a single victory, got their second win when Chip Kelly opted for a 2-point conversion after a late touchdown against the Rams.
