LOS ANGELES RAMS TO HOST KANSAS CITY CHIEFS IN MEXICO CITY IN 2018

 

The Los Angeles Rams will host their third-consecutive international game in 2018, with a home contest in Mexico City against the Kansas City Chiefs at Estadio Azteca, NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL announced today. The contest marks the Rams’ first regular-season game in Mexico after previously hosting games in back-to-back seasons in the United Kingdom at Twickenham Stadium (2016-17).

 

“Southern California and Mexico share strong historic and cultural ties and this game will provide an opportunity to celebrate the special connection between these two regions,” said Rams Owner/Chairman E. STANLEY KROENKE.  “It is great to be participating in the NFL’s international games again and working with the league to grow the game abroad. Mexico has one of the largest NFL fan bases in the world and we are excited to bring Rams football to the millions of fans there.”

 

In November, the NFL and Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism announced an agreement to play three NFL regular-season games from 2019 to 2021. The previous agreement covered games from 2016 to 2018.

 

“Over the past two seasons, we have seen the extraordinary passion that exists for NFL football in Mexico,” Goodell said.  “We are excited for another memorable event at Estadio Azteca as the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs head to Mexico City in 2018.”

Fans interested in receiving information about tickets for the game, which will go on sale this summer, should register their interest at www.nfl.com/mexico/registration.  Season ticket members of the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs will receive information directly from the clubs once tickets are ready for sale.

 

The date and time of the game will be determined in conjunction with the release of the NFL schedule this spring.

Meeke closes on Mexico win

Apr 3, 2017

Meeke closes on Mexico win

Kris Meeke takes 30.9sec lead over Séb Ogier at Rally Guanajuato Mexico.

The Briton won just one of the nine speed tests, most on dirt roads in the mountains near León, but it was a decisive victory. While Meeke carried out a planned attack to perfection, Ogier spun and a deficit of just over 20sec became almost twice that.

The duo traded seconds through the opening four special stages before Meeke pounced in his Citroën C3. Ogier promised this morning it would not be an ‘all or nothing’ day, and after pirouetting at a hairpin bend, he signalled his challenge was over.

“It has been a perfect weekend so far. That was going to be the defining loop of the rally. I had to make it stick on this loop and it worked,” said Meeke, who gambled with hard compound Michelin tyres despite the threat of rain. Fortunately for him it stayed dry.

Ogier won two tests in his Ford Fiesta and ended 39.6sec clear of Thierry Neuville, who also won a stage. The misfire which slowed Neuville’s Hyundai i20 Coupe last night, along with team-mates Hayden Paddon and Dani Sordo, was traced to a blocked fuel filter and all three cars ran cleanly today.

Neuville regretted opting for soft tyres this afternoon when forecast rain failed to arrive, but with a large gap in front and behind, an error-free day kept him on course for strong points.

Ott Tänak was fourth in a Fiesta. The Estonian struggled for confidence in his car’s set-up this morning but headed a frustrated Hayden Paddon. The Kiwi punctured after hitting a rock and experimented with new settings in a bid to find his pace.

Jari-Matti Latvala overhauled Toyota Yaris team-mate Juho Hänninen for sixth in the penultimate stage. Latvala overcame morning brake problems and punctured after hitting the same rock as Paddon.

Just finishing was a victory for Hänninen. Struck down by sickness, he persevered and by the day’s end his health was improving.

Sunday’s final leg comprises two tests. After a mid-morning start, crews drive the 32.96km La Calera ahead of the 21.94km Derramadero live TV Power Stage, which offers bonus points for the fastest five drivers.

FRANCHISE PLAYERS NAMED

Mar 3, 2017

FRANCHISE PLAYERS NAMED

Franchise player designations were announced today for the 2017 NFL free agency signing period, which begins at 4:00 p.m. ET on March 9.

A club can designate one “franchise” player or one “transition” player among its veteran free agents.

The salary offer by a player’s club determines whether the franchise player designation is exclusive or non-exclusive.

An “exclusive” franchise player – not free to sign with another club – is offered the greater of (i) the average of the top five salaries at the player’s position for the current year as of the end of the restricted free agent signing period on April 21; or (ii) the amount of the required tender for a “non-exclusive” franchise player, as explained below.

Article 10, Section 2(a)(i) of the CBA sets forth the methodology, known as the “Cap Percentage Average,” for calculating the required tender for such a player:

The Nonexclusive Franchise Tender shall be a one year NFL Player Contract for (A) the average of the five largest Prior Year Salaries for players at the position . . . at which the Franchise Player participated in the most plays during the prior League Year, which average shall be calculated by: (1) summing the amounts of the Franchise Tags for players at that position for the five preceding League Years; (2) dividing the resulting amount by the sum of the Salary Caps for the five preceding League Years . . . ; and (3) multiplying the resulting percentage by the Salary Cap for the upcoming League Year . . . (the “Cap Percentage Average”) . . . ; or (B) 120% of his Prior Year Salary, whichever is greater . . . .

If a club extends a required tender to a non-exclusive franchise player pursuant to this section, the player shall be permitted to negotiate a player contract with any club, except that draft choice compensation of two first-round draft selections shall be made in the event he signs with a new club.

The signing period for franchise players begins at 4:00 p.m. (ET) on March 9 and ends on the Tuesday following the 10th week of the season (November 14).

This year, two players (Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh and Kirk Cousins, Washington) were designated as exclusive franchise players.  Five players were designated as non-exclusive franchise players.  No players were designated as transition players.

SEVEN FROM SUNDAY – WEEK 11​

Nov 21, 2016

SEVEN FROM SUNDAY – WEEK 11

A look at seven statistical highlights from games played at 1:00 p.m. ET and 4:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 20, the 11th week of the 2016 season.

  • The DALLAS COWBOYS gained 417 total net yards in the team’s 27-17 win over Baltimore. That marked the team’s eighth consecutive game with at least 400 yards, tied for the longest single-season streak in NFL history (2007 New England and 2013 Denver). The Cowboys have won nine consecutive games, the longest single-season winning streak in franchise history.

    Dallas rookie quarterback DAK PRESCOTT passed for 301 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Ravens. Prescott is the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to pass for at least 300 yards and multiple touchdowns with no interceptions in consecutive games. He joined Pro Football Hall of Famer DAN MARINO (1983) and RUSSELL WILSON (2012) as the only rookie quarterbacks since 1970 to have multiple touchdown passes in five consecutive games.

    Cowboys rookie running back EZEKIEL ELLIOTT rushed for 97 yards and leads the NFL with 1,102 rushing yards. Elliott’s 1,102 rushing yards are the third-most in NFL history in a player’s first 10 games, trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer ERIC DICKERSON (1,223) and ADRIAN PETERSON (1,197).

  • The DETROIT LIONS scored 10 unanswered points in the fourth quarter of the team’s 26-19 come-from-behind victory over Jacksonville. The Lions, who are the first team in NFL history to have each of its first 10 games decided by seven points or fewer, have trailed in the fourth quarter in all 10 games. Detroit is the first team in NFL history to have six wins when trailing in the fourth quarter in the team’s first 10 games of a season.
  • The NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS defeated San Francisco 30-17 to improve to 8-2 this season. With their eighth win, the Patriots are guaranteed at least a .500 record this season. New England is the fifth team in NFL history – and the first since the 1983-1998 San Francisco 49ers – to have at least 16 consecutive seasons with a .500 or better record.

    Patriots quarterback TOM BRADY threw four touchdown passes and no interceptions against the 49ers. Brady has 21 career games with at least four touchdown passes and no interceptions, the most in NFL history. Including the postseason, Brady now has 199 career victories, tied with Pro Football Hall of Famer BRETT FAVRE for the second-most in NFL history. Brady needs one win to tie PEYTON MANNING (200) for the most all-time.

  • Minnesota’s XAVIER RHODES had a 100-yard interception-return touchdown and CORDARRELLE PATTERSON had a 104-yard kickoff-return touchdown in the Vikings’ 30-24 win over Arizona. The Vikings are the first team since the 1962 Dallas Cowboys to have a 100+ yard interception-return touchdown and a 100+ yard kickoff-return touchdown in the same game. On October 14, 1962, the Cowboys’ AMOS MARSH had a 101-yard kickoff-return touchdown and MIKE GAECHTER had a 100-yard interception-return touchdown in Dallas’ 41-19 win over Philadelphia.
  • Pittsburgh wide receiver ANTONIO BROWN had eight catches for 76 yards in the Steelers’ 24-9 win at Cleveland. Brown, who has 603 career receptions, reached 600 catches in his 96th career game, the fewest games to reach the milestone in NFL history. Brown surpassed the previous mark held by ANQUAN BOLDIN, who reached 600 receptions in 98 career games.
  • Baltimore wide receiver STEVE SMITH, SR. had eight catches for 99 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ loss at Dallas. Smith has 1,005 career receptions and became the 14th player in NFL history to reach 1,000 career catches. Smith is the only player in league history with at least 1,000 catches (1,005), 1,000 punt-return yards (1,684) and 2,000 kickoff-return yards (2,371).
  • Starting with the 2015 season, the NFL adopted a rule change moving the line of scrimmage on an extra-point kick attempt to the 15-yard line in order to make it a more competitive play. In today’s games, there have been 11 missed extra-point kick attempts, the most in a single week since the merger.
