they deserved a shit of a game
I agree with that. Terribly boring game all the way around.
Under 27.5 second half also looks good. I don't see the Rams putting up more than 10 points in this game.
SECOND HALF ***PATRIOTS (PK)*** -Los Angeles had 2 first downs in the 1st half and the LA offensive line completely ineffective. LA can't run the ball and Goff has not time to pass. New England has at least been somewhat productive on offense and moving the ball. Hard to to like Patriots here in the 2nd half, who have historically been a 2nd half team.
Tear up your Overs tickets :( Rams offense looks anemic.70%
Defense wins championships. I harken back to how the Rams dominated the Cowboys in the NFL playoff game. LA is due for a game where they put it all together and let's not forget how shaky the Pats were through out the season. And at LA +2.5 -110, might as well hit the money line at +120.70%
Who's going to win Super Bowl LIII? We heard from plenty of people (and sea animals) who had a pick. pic.twitter.com/qs5hIW6Uvf— CBS Sports Network (@CBSSportsNet) February 3, 2019
Los Angeles WR Cooper Kupp tore his ACL in week ten against the Seahawks and has been lost for the season. Jared Goff has not been the same quarterback since Kupp went down, but he still managed to bring his team back against the Saints. The Rams have the ability to pressure Tom Brady up the middle and that has given him trouble in the past. Take Los Angeles to complete their improbable ride with a Super Bowl victory. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Rams win in upset but grab the points just in case 30-27.70%
Happy SuperBowl Sunday everybody! Its been a relatively quite build up to this years game but I think it will be a good one! Im sticking with my pick of the Patriots -2.5 Normally experience wouldnt be such a deciding factor but wheither you like him or not Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have been here and have been successful here. McVay and company are just getting here. I Think the patriots win a field goal easily as Tom pulls away late. I see them winning by 6 or 7. The over is still in play here as well
Fansided: Jakeem Grant is not 100% but can still blow by defenders
Jakeem Grant is not 100%. He will tell you this. He is out practicing every day with his teammates but he knows there are limitations that he is putting on himself and the team as well.
Grant is working to recover from his season ending 2018 injury. An injury that he says was fortunate not to be an Achille's tear. Now, as the team progresses their off-season workouts, Grant is getting up to speed. Literally.
"I can get up to full gear. I'm still, with the injury and with me not being 100 percent, I can still easily run past guys.
Bolts From The Blue: How improved do you think the Chargers defense is from this offseason?
The 2019 Los Angeles Chargers (save a late signing and eventual cuts) are now in place. And defensively, they have made some big changes. They were already one of the National Football League's best units. They ranked 8th in Football Outsiders' DVOA (7th if you prefer the weighted variety), were 9th in yards allowed per game, and were 8th in points allowed per game.
They made an enormous addition by subtraction move in letting go of safety Jahleel Addae early in the offseason. They added one of the top free safety prospects from the NFL Draft by snagging Nasir Adderley of Delaware in the 2nd round.
Fansided: Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes respond to 2023 NFL Draft coming to Kansas City
During Thursday's media sessions with reporters, various members of the Kansas City Chiefs roster and staff expressed their excitement and support for the recent news that K.C. had been awarded the chance to host the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Kansas City region had attempted to serve as host city for the traveling three-day event to bring the NFL Draft to town, but they missed out in 2018 to Dallas and this year to Nashville. Kansas City maintained interest all the while, even as they were spurned each time despite being lauded for their proposals, and their endurance paid off when NFL owners approved the site in 2023 during the recent spring owners' meetings in Key Biscayne, Florida.
Big Cat Country: Josh Allen likely to miss remainder of OTAs with knee injury
The Jaguars completed their first week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) on Friday, and while you can expect to likely hear more about the team's major off season acquisition on offense in quarterback Nick Foles, don't expect to hear much else regarding their biggest defensive addition, as first-round pick Josh Allen likely will be on the sidelines.
Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the Jaguars will be keeping the seventh overall pick out of any drill work the remainder of the spring practices following a knee bruise he suffered on day one of team workouts.
Packers Talk: The curious case of Josh Jones
The third-year safety out of NC State is a no-show thus far at OTAs. The report this week is his intention to be traded for a "fresh start". With his departure seeming to be imminent, who could replace Jones in the Packers lineup, and why would he want to leave in the first place?
Jones backed up both the safety and linebacker positions, so who could Green Bay bring in to provide depth? Ibraheim Campbell spent the latter stages of last season as the veteran pickup-who-came-late-and-knows-the system-guy. Familiar with Mike Pettines' scheme from their days together in Cleveland, Campbell played his role last year as a solid depth option.
Fansided: Have the Detroit Lions done enough at running back?
Prior to coming to the Motor City this offseason to become the Detroit Lions' newest offensive coordinator, Darrell Bevell spent12 of the past 13 years as the OC for two different NFL franchises. Those being the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks.
During his time with each organization, Bevell had two future Hall of Fame running backs on his roster. With the Vikings, it was Adrian Peterson. With the Seahawks, Marshawn Lynch. Both amazing runners had the best seasons of their professional careers under the watchful eye of Bevell. And now the 49-year old coach is bringing his talents to Motown.
Blogging The Boys: Poll: Who should be QB2 for the Cowboys be in 2019?
We didn't realize it at the time, but things were great from a pun perspective when the quarterback depth chart for the Cowboys behind Dak Prescott read Cooper Rush and Kellen Moore. We had RushMoore, for crying out loud (I regret nothing).
Kellen Moore has since followed the path that almost every quarterback ever for America's Team has taken, he's become a coach for the team. Kellen is in fact the team's offensive coordinator during his second year wearing a polo on the sidelines, Jason Garrett is obviously the team's head coach, and Jon Kitna joined the staff this offseason to coach the quarterbacks.
Fansided: Cleveland Browns Baker Mayfield epically trolls Colin Cowherd
Colin Cowherd started a Twitter war with Baker Mayfield even before the Cleveland Browns made him the No. 1 pick overall in the 208 NFL Draft. Mayfield has since made a habit of proving Cowherd, and any other doubters wrong about him.
After Cowherd said that Mayfield had "Marginal size and athleticism" and shouldn't be a No. 1 pick in any sport, the quarterback simply replied with the comment "Well it happened bud. Have a nice day!"
From there, the feud only grew. Cowherd tried to call Baker a bad teammate on his show and was slammed by Mayfield who accused him of cherry-picking moments to support his opinion rather than looking at the facts.
Fansided: Buffalo Bills: Top 6 players on the roster right now
Through the ups and downs of last season, there is one takeaway that I noticed after the beatdown of the Miami Dolphins in Week 17: "Next season is the next stage after the down year."
The Buffalo Bills finished 6-10, third in the division behind the Dolphins and the New England Patriots. From drafting their hopeful franchise quarterback, living through different interception nightmares and discovering no-name talents near the end of the season, the Bills are taking it slowly in the right direction.
The Bills had a busy offseason. Bringing in free agents and draft picks to build the culture that Sean McDermott wants.
Fansided: Arizona Cardinals head coach has done well with quarterbacks
Back in January, the Arizona Cardinals hiring of Kliff Kingsbury was criticized by many of the league's pundits. Many skeptics believe that the 39-year old will fail as a head coach in the desert. But while Kingsbury's won-loss record (35-40) as Texas Tech's main man was not impressive, his track record with quarterbacks certainly is.
When Cards' team President Michael Bidwill and general manager Steve Keim set out to replace Steve Wilks, they had something specific in mind. The club had a young passer, Josh Rosen, who needed to be steered in the right direction. Kingsbury appeared to be the perfect choice for the job, although it's now Kyler Murray who will need that guidance.
