#1 NFL teams beginning in 1992 and ending in 20 von elaine95 31.07.2019 09:56

ORCHARD PARK http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/kahale-warring-jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Josh Allen has unfinished business he’d like to attend to before the rookie quarterback’s season comes to a close this weekend.Specifically, Allen is still stung by how he came oh-so-close to beating AFC East rival Miami in his first meeting, a 21-17 loss for Buffalo four weeks ago.“I relived it a few times. It’s one of those plays where it (stinks),” Allen said.Article continues below ...He’s referring to how his pass on fourth-and-11 from Miami’s 30 fell just out of the reach of tight end Charles Clay at the goal line in the final minute.Allen and the Bills (5-10) have an opportunity to make up for it Sunday when the Dolphins (7-8) come to town in a season-ending matchup of teams out of playoff contention.“I look back at it and I should’ve made a better throw,” Allen added. “I definitely think we’re a better team since that game, and it’s time to go back out on Sunday and kind of prove it.”For the young, rebuilding Bills, they have an opportunity to win four of the final seven and show they’re trending in the right direction.The Dolphins, meantime, are preparing to enter an offseason of uncertainty.Questions are raised over the status of coach Adam Gase and vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum. And it’s unclear whether quarterback Ryan Tannehill will return for an eighth season.“What’s the good of wondering and pondering and wasting time thinking about it,” said Tannehill, who has a 5-5 record and missed five starts with an injured right throwing shoulder. “It’s out of my control right now. I’m focused on winning this one game in Buffalo.”Tannehill’s production has essentially flat-lined this season, and he hasn’t topped 300 yards passing since Sept. 25, 2016 http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/bobby-okereke-jersey , which came before he missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury.Not all the blame falls on Tannehill’s shoulders. The Dolphins’ defense has allowed 400 yards in a game nine times this season, including 415 to Buffalo.And this is a team that’s been wildly unpredictable. Though they count wins against division leaders such as New England and Chicago, the Dolphins have also lost to last-place teams such as Cincinnati, Detroit and Jacksonville.“I think we’ve just been so all over the place,” Gase said. “One game we’ll do well on offense, and then we’ll just be nonexistent one game.”HELLO, AGAINThe Dolphins are the only division rival Allen will face twice this season after he missed four games with a sprained right throwing elbow. The rookie has a 4-6 record, and lost all three starts against AFC East foes.Against Miami, Allen finished 18 of 33 for 231 yards passing with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also had 135 yards rushing , the most by a Bills quarterback.NO LOVE LOSTBills defensive lineman Jordan Phillips continues to carry a grudge against the Dolphins for cutting him in Week 5 following his angry outburst on the sideline during a 38-7 loss at New England.Before Buffalo’s first meeting against Miami, Phillips said: “Most people that leave Miami, that’s really when their career gets started.”This week, Phillips said he’s not surprised by the uncertainty in Miami.“I feel like I got out of there in the perfect time,” he said. “It’s kind of imploding. Yeah http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline.com/jawaan-taylor-jersey , I’m happy to be a Bill.”BAD TRAVELERSThe Dolphins have the road to blame for their struggles. Though 6-2 at home, Miami is 1-6 on the road, where it’s been outscored 218-120. The losses include blowing double-digit fourth-quarter leads at Cincinnati and at Indianapolis.The Dolphins have lost 11 of their past 12 away games, and five of their past six games at Buffalo, with the lone win in overtime in 2016.GROUNDEDMiami has run the ball well but not enough. Its average of 4.7 yards is the franchise’s best since the 1973 Super Bowl championship season, and ranks seventh in the NFL. But the Dolphins are 25th with 23 carries per game and have just seven touchdowns rushing. Only San Francisco has scored fewer (6).GROUNDED IIBills running back LeSean McCoy is in jeopardy of finishing with his fewest yards rushing in a season. He has 488, 149 shy of his career low set during McCoy’s rookie season with the 2009 Philadelphia Eagles.McCoy has topped 100 yards just once (113 in 41-10 win over Jets on Nov. 11), and managed 9 yards on six carries in a 24-12 loss at New England last week. McCoy was also forced to sit out the first play against the Patriots for an unspecified disciplinary reason.“That’s between LeSean and myself,” coach Sean McDermott said. “I appreciate him being accountable, I really do. And we’ve moved on.” RENTON, Wash. (AP) — There was no chance the phone call intended for D.K. Metcalf was someone pulling a prank.Not when it was a video call and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was on the other end.“I was amazed, kind of shocked. But I had to realize that was my teammate and I wasn’t a fan anymore,” Metcalf said.If Metcalf needed a welcome to the NFL moment, it arrived when his new quarterback reached out to welcome him to the Seattle. And it has continued during Metcalf’s first weekend with the Seahawks during their rookie camp where the wide receiver has been the star attraction.At 6-foot-4 and nearly 230 pounds http://www.jacksonvillejaguarsteamonline.com/gardner-minshew-ii-jersey , he’s hard to miss. Throw in a handful of leaping catches through the first two days — albeit against defenders being told not to make plays on the ball — and it’s easy to see what made Seattle so attracted to Metcalf.Asked what excites him most about his new wide receiver, Pete Carroll said: “Well, it’s almost like, what doesn’t, you know?”“He’s big and he’s fast. He’s got really good feet, you know, and his catching range was exhibited today for a start,” Carroll continued. “And you know, we’ve got to figure it out, figure out where it is, maybe even more unique than we thought coming in. So we just develop it as we go. But big and really fast and the catching range was really obvious.”Even his new teammates are a little in awe of what Metcalf can bring. Defensive back Ugo Amadi was taken in the fourth round and once tried to convince Metcalf to go to Mississippi when they were in high school. He used “monster” and “freak” to describe Metcalf.“I used to go up against him in high school, we used to go to camps together, he was that big in high school and I was still my size,” the 5-9 Amadi said. “He’s going to be definitely a threat when the season comes.”Metcalf’s pre-draft workouts sent the league buzzing with his 4.33 40-yard dash http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/darrell-henderson-jersey , but his draft slide created even more attention. Expected to potentially go in the first round, Metcalf ended up being selected with the 64th pick in the second round after Seattle traded up to select the big wide receiver Carroll has long coveted. The selection ended an uneasy wait for Metcalf and the emotion came pouring out in his phone call with Carroll and general manager John Schneider.But all of that is in the past. Seattle’s rookie minicamp is the beginning of Metcalf proving the concerns which caused him to slide on draft boards were unfounded.“Just be me. I don’t have to prove anything to anybody. I’m just going to be myself,” Metcalf said.Route running has been one of the criticisms Metcalf has faced. He spent a significant amount of time before the draft working with wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan in Arizona. The 74-year-old Sullivan coached wide receivers for six NFL teams beginning in 1992 and ending in 2016 with Jacksonville. It didn’t take long for Metcalf to respect what Sullivan had to say after mentioning two of the receivers he had coached were Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald.Metcalf said there were little tips from Sullivan — like being more decisive in his breaks — that he has tried to show in his first days with Seattle.Carroll wasn’t as concerned about the route running. His initial focus was on Metcalf’s feet and whether what showed on film matched what he saw in person.“You know, sometimes the bigger guys the feet just don’t move as quick. His feet were really, really lightning quick and it showed it out here already,” Carroll said. “So that means that the potential is there to make him an excellent releaser. He’s already going to be really strong and using his hands, getting off the ball, but to have that combination, when we get a chance to tie it all together, it should be a really good package.”
