World Series

World Series Game 5 :The Boston Red Sox can clinch their fourth World Series title since 2004 Sunday night at Dodger Stadium. Boston holds a 3-1 series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers after its come-from-behind victory in Game 4.

Given the way the series has played out, Game 5 should produce a new set of unexpected twists, with the first being David Price earning the start instead of Chris Sale for the Red Sox.

Clayton Kershaw will oppose Price and is looking to deliver the third straight quality start by a Los Angeles starter and send the series back to Boston.

The final three innings of Game 4 were littered with bad decisions by Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

The downward spiral began when Roberts removed starter Rich Hill after he struck out Eduardo Nunez for the first out of the seventh.

Hill, who allowed one hit and one earned run while striking out seven batters, was at 91 pitches and could have continued, but Roberts opted to go to his bullpen.

Scott Alexander, who replaced Hill, walked Xander Bogaerts, and Ryan Madson gave up the three-run home run to Mitch Moreland that ignited the Boston comeback.

Roberts’ decision to pull Hill looked even worse in the eighth and ninth innings, as Kenley Jansen gave up the game-winning home run and the combination of Dylan Floro, Alex Wood and Kenta Maeda struggled.

Because of Roberts’ poor decision-making, the Dodgers lost all of the momentum they gained from the 18-inning win in Game 3 and face a must-win game Sunday.

The good news for Los Angeles entering Game 5 is Kershaw has given up one earned run in his two victorious home starts during the 2018 postseason.

If Kershaw produces similar numbers as Walker Buehler in Game 3 and Hill in Game 4, the Dodgers will have an opportunity to win the game.

However, Roberts could be the difference between winning and losing once again as he attempts to put together the best lineup possible against Boston’s left-handed starter David Price.

In Game 2 against Price, Roberts started all of his right-handed batters, but the Dodgers manager called on his left-handed bats once the Boston starter departed the mound.

If Roberts employs the same strategy in Game 5, he’ll rely on Max Muncy, Joc Pederson, Cody Bellinger and Yasmani Grandal to come up with clutch hits in one or two at-bats.

The one player Roberts shouldn’t worry about is Yasiel Puig, who rocked a three-run home run off left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez in Game 4.

If Puig, who has a .250 batting average against left-handed pitching compared to a .290 clip versus right-handed pitchers, finds success against Price, the Dodgers should get out to an early lead.

Up until Saturday night, Sale was expected to be the Game 5 starter for the Red Sox, but Cora unveiled Price as the man for the job after the Game 4 victory.

As much as the Red Sox would love to close out the series at Dodger Stadium with Sale on the hill, Cora is making the right decision by going with Price.

By opting for Price in Game 5, Cora will be able to call on a fresh Sale to start Game 6 at home if the series gets to that point or go to his ace in the eighth or ninth inning to close out the series Sunday.

In his past two playoff starts, Price gave up two earned runs on six hits while striking out 14 batters in a pair of six-inning outings.

If Price turns in a similar outing in Game 5, the Red Sox should be in position to go to their bullpen to close out the championship.

However, Price isn’t completely fresh. He tossed 0.2 innings in relief in Game 3 and warmed up in the bullpen at the end of Game 4.

With only two true days of rest under his belt, Price could struggle early and force Cora to use his already-extended bullpen as early as the third or fourth inning to limit the runs produced by the home side.

Mexican Grand Prix 2018

Mexican Grand Prix 2018: Daniel Ricciardo claimed pole position for the 2018 Formula One Mexican Grand Prix at the expense of Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen after qualifying at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on Saturday.

Ricciardo denied 21-year-old Verstappen the chance to become the youngest driver on pole in F1 history, but Red Bull still secured a front-row lockout for Sunday’s race.

Lewis Hamilton finished third-fastest and still only requires a finish of seventh or higher to wrap up the title ahead of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel.

Verstappen made it three out of three when he was fastest in the third and final practice session to begin the day. Champion in waiting Hamilton and rival Vettel rounded out the top three:

Hamilton and Mercedes opted for the ultrasoft tyres in Q1, with Red Bull and Ferrari trusting the hypersofts. The latter two teams put those tyres to good use early on:

Despite Vettel and Verstappen’s best efforts, it was Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas who set the pace in Q1 ahead of the defending champion:

Veteran Fernando Alonso saw his time wiped out after the 37-year-old McLaren man exceeded the track limits. There was also misfortune for Haas F1 duo Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean, who were among those to miss out at the end of Q1.

Both title rivals eventually saw themselves outdone by Verstappen, who finally made his practice form count as he shaded the session:

The home crowd was left disappointed as Force India driver Sergio Perez was one of the names who didn’t make the cut. He was joined by team-mate Esteban Ocon, Alonso and Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly.

Force India were left to rue the decision to drive on supersofts, despite the obvious benefits of the hypers.

Determined to chase down history, Verstappen crossed the line on provisional pole after setting an impressive time on his first run with around six minutes left:

The final runs saw Ricciardo seize pole from the grasp of his fellow Red Bull driver by a mere two hundredths of a second. Verstappen tried to fight back, but he couldn’t better Ricciardo’s time.

A Red Bull front-row lockout was some form of consolation for Verstappen, who still finished ahead of Hamilton. The latter paced Vettel in P3 and still looks a lock to secure the title on Sunday.

Hamilton remains confident and is content with his efforts to match Red Bull on a circuit where the team has traditionally been strong:

Mercedes seem likely to take another title, but rising star Verstappen will nonetheless be ruing his failure to secure a place in the history books.

With much of the focus ahead of the Clasico on the fact that both Ronaldo and Messi will be absent, it has allowed some attention to be drawn away from the fact that Real Madrid have been out of sorts.

Julen Lopetegui is facing serious questions over his future following a poor run of form, in which Los Blancos went five games without a win and dropped to eighth in La Liga. Tuesday’s win against Viktoria Plzen brought some relief to the former Spain boss, but the result against Barca will be much more important.

Barca, on the other hand had raced to the summit of La Liga and, despite enduring an inconsistent patch towards the end of September, have laid down a marker both domestically and on the continent when it comes to the pursuit of titles this season.

The recent enforced absence of Messi did little to hamper Ernesto Valverde’s men against both Sevilla and Inter, so it is clear that the squad are well equipped to cover, but there will no doubt be an added psychological edge to the game against their rivals.

It may be early in the season, but the outcome of Sunday’s game could well have far-reaching consequences; for Barca it would help propel them on in their relentless assault for the title and for Real it could be decisive point in their campaign, not to mention Lopetegui’s tenure.

Manchester United vs Everton

Manchester United may have picked up four points in their last two Premier League games, both of them from losing positions, but they have something to prove after squandering two points late on to Chelsea and then submitting to Juventus in midweek.

That performance against the Italian champions left the Old Trafford support disappointed and they will be hoping for a better showing from their side when Marco Silva and Everton come to M16 on Sunday.

Manchester United vs Everton Live IN HD Free

United desperately need to put a run of results together in the league since they sit in 10th place heading into the weekend, and with a tricky trip to in-form Bournemouth and then the first Manchester derby of the season at the Etihad Stadium to come in their next two fixtures, the visit of the Toffees a must-win encounter.

Jose Mourinho bemoaned his lack of resources in midweek after refusing to use any of his substitutes in the 1-0 defeat to Juve and will be hoping that he has more to choose from on Sunday.

Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Scott McTominay, Diogo Dalot and Marouane Fellaini all missed out in midweek, with Marcos Rojo also short of fitness despite having returned to full training recently.

Sanchez could be back in contention for Everton’s visit, and so too Lingard. Fellaini and McTominay both picked up injuries on international duty, as did Dalot.

United have no suspension worries, and the same is true of Everton. Similarly, neither side is set to lose any players to suspension should they be booked on Sunday.

Man Utd Starting Line-Up

Mourinho will be glad for the extra 24 hours afforded by the relatively late switch in kick-off times as that could free up one or two extra players to return from injury and take their places in the starting line-up.

One big decision he faces either way is the inclusion or otherwise of ex-Everton striker Romelu Lukaku after the manager admitted in the week that the Belgian’s form is a concern and a lack of confidence in front of goal is also affecting his play elsewhere on the field. Lukaku’s presence in the starting XI may depend on options out wide becoming more plentiful so that Marcus Rashford or Alexis Sanchez can step in at number nine.

Antonio Valencia could step into the side after missing out in midweek, while Mourinho could change the shape back to a 4-3-3 if he decides that Ander Herrera, Andreas Pereira or Fred is worthy of a recall.

© Provided by Perform Media Channels Limited Man Utd possible XI

Everton arrive at Old Trafford on a run of three straight victories which have seen them climb above United into eighth position. Of last season’s top six, the Toffees have only faced Arsenal so far and lost at the Emirates Stadium thanks to quickfire goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang early in the second half, so they will be hoping for a better return at the Theatre of Dreams.

Marco Silva seems to be gradually making his imprint on the Everton side after finally making the move to Goodison in the summer following a protracted attempt for his signature last autumn before the club eventually recruited Sam Allardyce for their battle against relegation.

Last time out substitutes Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun made all the difference with late goals against Crystal Palace, while Gylfi Sigurddson and Richarlison have racked up four goals each so far this term.

Former United defender Michael Keane has impressed of late at the back for the Merseysiders, and he will be looking to leave an impression at his former home on Sunday.

TV Channel & Kick-off time

The match at Old Trafford kicks off at 4:00pm GMT on Sunday following Saturday night’s switchover from British Summer Time, with live coverage available in the UK on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event from 3:30pm. In the U.S. the game will be shown on NBCSN at 12:00pm ET.

Best Opta Match facts

Manchester United have won 19 home Premier League games against Everton – only against Spurs have they won more (21).

Everton are winless in seven matches against Manchester United in all competitions (W0 D2 L5) since a 3-0 home win in the Premier League in April 2015.

Five of Manchester United’s last seven Premier League goals against Everton have been scored in the last 10 minutes of matches.

Manchester United currently have a goal difference of -1 in the Premier League this season; the first time that they have had a negative goal difference after nine games of a

league campaign since 1990-91.

Only in 2014-15 under Louis van Gaal (13 points) have Manchester United won fewer points from their opening nine games in a Premier League season than in 2018-19 (14).

In fact, this is the second time Jose Mourinho has won just 14 points from a possible 27 in his opening nine matches of a season as Man Utd boss (also did so in 2016-17).

David de Gea has conceded 16 goals in nine Premier League matches for Manchester United this season – in 2017-18, he conceded the same tally of goals in his first 24

matches and didn’t concede his 17th goal until January 31st.

Everton forward Richarlison has made 13 Premier League appearances against ‘big six’ teams but hasn’t scored a single goal and made just one assist (1063 mins played).

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku; who is Everton’s all-time leading goalscorer in the Premier League with 68 goals, scored one goal and assisted another in his only previous match against the Toffees in a Man Utd shirt (September 2017).

Everton boss Marco Silva has only won one of his six competitive managerial meetings with Portuguese compatriot Jose Mourinho in all competitions (W1 D1 L4); this coming in a League Cup tie with Hull City at home in January 2017 (2-1).

Colts vs Raiders

Colts vs Raiders: The Colts and the Raiders play on Sunday. This game will likely only be watched by Colts and Raiders fans. That being said, if you’re doing some sports betting, here is what Vegas says about this game.

Colts vs Raiders Live On HD Free

The Colts and the Raiders have struggled this season. They haven’t had a good record so far. But these two teams are trending in opposite directions. The Colts are trending upward while the Raiders are trending downward. Vegas has taken notice of that.

As of right now, the Colts are 3 point favorites in Oakland. That spread seems a little small after everything that has happened around Oakland this week. It seems like the Colts should be favored by more points, even on the road.

Based on the talent of the rosters, I would take the Colts to cover that spread. They should be able to win this game by at least a touchdown. They have the more talented squad and have been playing better as of late. They also don’t have as much drama surrounding them.

The over/under in this game is 50.5. That is a tough line. The Colts should score a lot of points, but the Raiders might not. I would take the under because of the lack of firepower from Oakland. The Colts should be able to score plenty of points.

I am more confident on the spread than I am the over/under. They could go over if the Raiders are able to show any life on offense at all. But the Indy defense has played great this season and shut down the Bills last week.

Redskins vs Giants

Redskins vs Giants : The New York Giants opened the week as 1-point home underdogs against the Washington Redskins, and that has remained relatively steady, opening Saturday at +1 and +1.5 at most sportsbooks. Although most expert picked the Redskins, there were a few who were brave enough to pick the Giants.

How does the Giants Wire staff see this Week 8 battle shaking out? Here’s a look at our picks and score predictions:

Prior to the trades of cornerback Eli Apple and defensive tackle Damon Harrison, I had the Giants winning this game. However, combined with those trades and linebacker Alec Ogletree sitting this one out, I’m shifting my prediction over to the Redskins. The Giants continue to struggle offensively and have now gotten much less talented defensively.

Watch Redskins vs Giants Live Free Now Direct Tv

Yes, I’m picking the Giants to win. Washington has a stout front seven on defense and Big Blue’s offensive line will have another tough day, but they won’t need a lot of points to win this one. The Skins’ offense isn’t that dynamic and they are missing several key receivers and Adrian Peterson is only averaging 63 yards per game in his career against the Blue (five games) and they will stop him again Sunday. The Giants defense will have a chip on its shoulder after the Snacks and Apple trades. That will lead the Giants to a much-needed, long-awaited victory.

Last year, the Giants came into MetLife Stadium and ended their abysmal season on a high note with a win over Washington. But that was a different set of circumstances. It’s a totally different Redskins team, one who are in first place of the NFC East and one who are playing with a lot of confidence in themselves, especially after knocking off the Dallas Cowboys the way they did a week ago.

The Redskins use a lot of pressure to get after the quarterback, especially with Ryan Kerrigan. If the Giants can’t stop the blitz again, Eli Manning could be in some trouble, as the Redskins have shown they know how to get after it. Plus, they rank seventh in the NFL in defense, especially in points allowed, so it could be a long day for the Giants trying to score points.

This Washington team has beaten some really good opponents this year and flown under-the-radar despite many predicting them to finish last in the NFC East to open the year. Led by a strong run-stopping defense, the Redskins will certainly have their eye on Saquon Barkley. Barkley was disappointed in his performance last week as he fell short of 100 all purpose yards for the first time in his career, so I expect him to come out with some extra motivation. If the Giants are going to win, they are likely going to have to do it through the air, where they showed some flashes last week when Eli Manning had time. After trading away Eli Apple and Damon Harrison, I also expect the defense to come out fired up against a division rival.

With Snacks and Eli Apple gone, the Redskins offense should find it easy to move the ball down the field, especially when running between the tackles. The Giants offense could have a solid day, but it likely won’t be enough to end their losing streak.

Chiefs vs Broncos

Chiefs vs Broncos : The Broncos gave the Chiefs offense difficulty last time. Here’s how the Chiefs can flip the script. The Kansas City Chiefs should be flying pretty high at this point in the season.

Chiefs vs Broncos Live In HD Free TV

Coming off the big Sunday Night Football shredding of the Cincinnati Bengals, they now turn their attention to a rematch with the Denver Broncos. Against the Bengals — like most of the season — the Chiefs offense was clicking on all cylinders, and looked as unstoppable as ever.

But so far this season, the defense that gave the Chiefs the most trouble for 60 minutes was the Denver Broncos. Normally a game like this could be considered a trap game — as it comes after two high-profile, primetime football games against playoff-contending teams, but since the Broncos have been the only team to hold the Chiefs under 30 points this season, there should be plenty of motivation for the Chiefs to play well.

Having the Broncos come into Arrowhead should spark some energy, but the Chiefs certainly will have to execute at a more consistent level than in their first meeting. While being one of Patrick Mahomes’ more impressive games of the season, the first Chiefs-Broncos game isn’t a recipe for success this time around, as it asked the young quarterback to make one incredible play after another while on the run.

So down in The AP Laboratory, I spent some time looking back at the original game plan against Denver, and focusing on what the Broncos were doing to slow down the Chiefs.

In order for this game plan to work, the Chiefs will have to make some adjustments in either coaching or execution.

In the first matchup, the Chiefs’ timing appeared to be substantially affected by the Broncos pass rush. Mahomes was often flushed (or was scrambling) from the pocket as receivers broke open, and the receivers were unable to uncover quickly. There a few big plays in the running game, but there wasn’t a consistent threat to move the sticks on the ground. And until late the in the fourth quarter, the Chiefs consistently struggled to find success with the favorable matchups they were getting.

Kareem Hunt had a massive game against the Bengals last week and played very well against the Patriots the week before. A ton of that success on the ground was from outside runs — not just the outside zone runs, but also Bucksweeps, off-tackle power runs, and even pitch plays. Hunt has quickly become one of the top running backs on outside runs — thanks to his quick decision making, silly balance, and great body control to turn the corners and accelerate quickly.

In this play — similar to quite a few snaps against the Bengals — Hunt gets out to the edge with two pulling offensive linemen in front of him. One is used to kick out an unblocked edge player, while the other works into the second level. Hunt does a great job working off the inside hip of the kick-out block and then works outside of Kelce’s block.

The Chiefs should continue the use of these sweeps and other outside runs, forcing Broncos linebackers to run to the sideline, and Denver’s defensive backs to tackle Hunt in space.

In the first meeting, Travis Kelce had a big second half to help the Chiefs come back — but even in the first half, his issues were much more about his execution rather than Denver slowing him down. Kelce should be in line for another big game — like he always has against Denver — as they struggle to find a real solution to slowing him down. Demetrius Harris presents another mismatch opportunity when the Broncos try to slow him down with linebackers.

Here — ignoring the false start/not false start slow get-off he had — Harris is matched up with an inferior athlete. Harris takes an inside release and easily works back outside and vertically on the slot fade. While the linebacker has decent position, Harris clearly has a step on him going downfield. This same matchup should be exploited in the next game — and hopefully, Kelce will bring more of his A-game early on.

This is easy to say, but in the last meeting, Chiefs receivers — outside of Tyreek Hill — did a terrible job of creating their own separation. Losing Sammy Watkins to injury early in the game definitely hurt their cause, as Demarcus Robinson and Chris Conley were blanketed most of the game. Whether via coaching and more man-beating route concepts — or by players simply being better — the Chiefs have to generate more space against the Broncos tight man coverage than they did last time.

The Chiefs have used mesh concepts similar to this one, but if their receivers are not winning their single matchups early in the game, they need to dial up their inner Sean McVay and run more of them against Denver. Robert Woods caught about six passes on these short/intermediate crossers and drags from these mesh concepts. If Watkins and Hill aren’t winning, Andy Reid needs to start scheming these easy passes.

Denver brought good pressure from the slot in the first game, often aligning two or three players over a tight end — or tightly aligned wide receivers — in an effort to disguise what kind of defense they were playing.

In addition, they would crowd the line of scrimmage with multiple linebackers and defensive backs to show pressure from five, six, or seven players, and mix up who was dropping into coverage and who was rushing the passer.

It wasn’t extremely complicated, but it was enough confusion that Mahomes’ clock was shorter than normal — and when the first read wasn’t what he expected. it tricked him into scrambling. On more than one occasion, Mahomes left a clean pocket expecting pressure that was shown, but didn’

Denver also sent the pressure plenty of times, too. At the start of the game, this really threw off the Chiefs’ offensive plan. On this particular play — with Denver running Cover 0 — Hill gets single coverage on a nine route. Against the coverage, it’s certainly a viable option — except the cornerback is playing press-bail technique.

As soon as Mahomes sees the cornerback retreat off the snap, he has to come off that read. To the right — the passing strength of the formation — there is a big cushion for all three receivers. As soon as the cornerback bailed on Hill, Mahomes should have come back to the right to look for other options with soft coverage, as they are running in/back breaking routes.

After seeing how both teams were playing up to that point, most people expected the Chiefs to roll into Denver on Monday Night Football and come away with a big victory. Instead, it turned out to be a nail-biter.

This time around, the Broncos and Chiefs are both coming off of impressive performances, and are looking to chain together big wins. If the Chiefs are able to remain healthy through the game, they should have plenty of success — and have no problem going over the 30-point mark.

the biggest thing that will help the offense be more productive is Mahomes being comfortable with Denver’s pressure fronts and slot blitzes.

The Chiefs should continue to run an offense heavy on RPOs, forcing the linebackers to stay home, and allowing Kareem Hunt to get out towards the sideline and turn upfield. If Sammy Watkins plays the entire game, it gives the Chiefs a reliable second wide receiver against man coverage — against which pure ability is often needed to break free. If this doesn’t work, Reid should run a lot of mesh concepts that create natural picks.

That said, the biggest thing that will help the offense be more productive is Mahomes being comfortable with Denver’s pressure fronts and slot blitzes. Correctly identifying them — and knowing who is the hot receiver — will help. So will recognizing when the pressure drops back, so he will know he can let routes develop.

Normally I don’t try to boil these reports down to If Mahomes can be great – because he has been, and that’s not the most exciting read every week.

But this is a huge game for him. It’s a defense that has now seen twice. His performance in Denver earlier this year was very, very good, but they forced him into playing the kind of hero ball you don’t want to rely upon for an entire game.

As long as he can process the fronts quicker — like he’s done in more recent weeks — this should be another high scoring affair for the Chiefs offense.

Panthers vs Ravens

Panthers vs Ravens: Coming off a stunning upset of the reigning Super Bowl champions on the road, the Carolina Panthers look to build on that victory when they host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon.

Panthers vs Ravens Live In Free HD Tv

The Panthers (4-2) scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and squeezed out the 21-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles when quarterback Cam Newton connected with tight end Greg Olsen for the go-ahead touchdown pass with 82 seconds to play.

Click Here To Direct TV Link

It marked the 17th fourth-quarter game-winning drive for Newton.

“He’s not a pure, pure pocket passer,” Carolina head coach Ron Rivera said of his dual-threat quarterback. “A lot is about his desire and wanting to win. He wants the ball. Cam has always wanted the ball.”

And the Ravens want Newton, particularly after a galling 24-23 home defeat to the New Orleans Saints when kicker Justin Tucker misfired on the first extra-point attempt of his stellar career.

“Superman! I mean, how often do you get to play against a superhero? His nickname kind of speaks for himself,” Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “He’s definitely going to be difficult to bring down, but hopefully neither one of us has to do it by ourselves.”

Newton passed for 269 yards and a pair of touchdowns and rushed for 49 yards on seven carries to rally the Panthers from a 17-0 deficit in the final 15 minutes against the Eagles. He threw for 201 yards in the fourth quarter alone as Carolina went to a hurry-up offense.

“When you get a rhythm, it really helps,” said Rivera of the up-tempo pace. “Do we need to look at it? Most certainly. I don’t think that’s going to drive what we do as an offense.”

Olsen had only two catches in his second game back from a fractured foot, but his presence could open things up for wide receiver Devin Funchess, who has a touchdown reception in three of the past four games.

Baltimore gave up 17-fourth-quarter points to Drew Brees and the Saints, but still allows the fewest yards (280.6) and fewest points (14.4) in the league.

The focus for the Ravens, who also top the NFL with 27 sacks, will be on containing Newton, who has thrown for 1,427 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. He’s also run for three scores.

“They do a great job of getting him out there as a runner,” said Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh. “He runs the ball — he’ll slide occasionally — but most of the time he’s low on his shoulder and trying to get first downs, even blocking. I mean, he’s down there sometimes after he gives it on some of that stuff, if he’s down there throwing blocks.

“But I guess he’s protected well. He does that, so I’m not sure how that works. (He is a) very physical player, tough to bring down in the pocket, just a real physical guy as a quarterback.”

Newton has led the team in rushing in each of the past two games. Panthers running back Christian McCaffery has just 15 carries combined in those game games, although he has 13 receptions in that span and a team-leading 40 on the season.

Baltimore’s ground game also is struggling. Leading rusher Alex Collins has cracked 60 yards just once and will be going up against a stout Carolina run defense that is allowing 95 yards per game.

The onus could fall on Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco to make big plays downfield. Flacco is ranked fifth in the NFL with 2,067 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. Receiver John Brown has caught 28 passes for 558 yards and four touchdowns and Michael Crabtree has 35 receptions.

“We understand we’re going against a good football team, but we have confidence in what we’re doing and what our defense is doing,” Flacco said. “So, we just have to keep our foot down on the pedal and just kind of (take it) one play at a time, locked in, and that’s everybody. I think if we do that, then we’ll limit all those chances.”

Baltimore is tied with Cincinnati for second place in the AFC North, one-half game behind Pittsburgh. Carolina sits one game behind first-place New Orleans in the NFC North and wants to build on the momentum of last week’s comeback.

“It’s about who you play next and how you play against them,” Rivera said. “But, again, I think it’s a chance to take a big step.”

Philadelphia are the defending NFL champs and have struggled to a 3-4 record in 2018 thus far. Last week was emblematic of how their season has gone.

With a commanding 17-point lead at home against the Carolina Panthers, the Eagles offense and defense decided to shutdown in the second half and let the Panthers score 21 unanswered to steal a win. That simply cannot happen for a team expected to not only make the postseason but content for the NFC.

Jacksonville, who shares Philly’s 3-4 record, reached the AFC Championship game last season. This year started hot at 3-1, but since the Jags have dropped three in a row.

Part of the issue for Jacksonville is the play of Blake Bortles. The loss of running back Leonard Fournette has put extra pressure on Bortles to throw, and he’s done a lousy job of it. The addition of former Browns running back Carlos Hyde should help pick up the running game.
