It would have been great to roll into the bye week with two wins and two great performances by the whole team. As it is Darius Leonard Jersey , the Colts will have to settle with a two game winning streak where the offense did its part and the defense struggled a bit. Regardless, the last two weeks saw the coming out party of the Colts’ offensive line as a force to be reckoned with. The team will head into the bye week with upward momentum and come out of it to meet a Jaguars team that is plummeting fast. While the outlook for this team seems really positive going forward, the immediate impact in terms of rankings is pretty negligible. The Colts are still 3-5, and their last two wins came against two of the worst teams in football. Let’s take a look at how they stack up.NFL.com has the Colts at 21st from 27th. Make that two in a row for the pesky Colts, who refuse to go quietly into 2018’s night. In fact, at 3-5, they are still right in the thick of the AFC South race. Indy is getting better -- more consistent -- quarterback play than the division-leading Texans. The Titans’ offense has been stuck in Tennessee mud all year. The Jaguars are right there with Indianapolis at 3-5 Malik Hooker Jersey White , save for the fact Jacksonville is headed in the opposition direction. Then again, that was the Raiders whom Indy toppled Sunday. OK, I’ll calm my enthusiasm.ESPN has the Colts up to 24th from 26th. It has taken nearly 11 years, but the Colts can finally say they’ve had a 100-yard rusher in back-to-back games again. Second-year running back Marlon Mack followed up his 126-yard performance against Buffalo in Week 7 by rushing for 132 yards against Oakland on Sunday. Joseph Addai was the last Colts running back to accomplish that feat when he topped the 100-yard mark on Oct. 28 and Nov. 4, 2007. USA Today has the Colts up to 26th from 27th. Treat — Eric Ebron, Jack Doyle and Mo Alie-Cox became first trio of tight ends to score TDs for same team in same game in Super Bowl era.Yahoo! Sports has the Colts at 25th, up from 27th.That’s 258 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns for Marlon Mack the past two weeks. The Colts have to be happy with some of the young talent that has emerged like Mack Womens Peyton Manning Jersey , Andrew Luck’s successful return and Frank Reich’s coaching. The Colts could make huge leaps in the next couple seasons.Bleacher Report has the Colts ranked 24th, up from 27th.Break up the Colts!In downing the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday, the Colts peeled off their third win of the season after a 1-5 start. Granted, their modest two-game winning streak has come against the Raiders and Bills (two of the league’s worst teams), but suddenly a Colts team that was floundering not too long ago is tied with the Jaguars and just two games out of first place.The Colts could get back into the mix in the AFC South. Four of Indy’s next five games are against teams in the South, and the Colts don’t face a team with a winning record until their rematch with the Texans on Dec. 9.Is it likely the Colts will be in the playoff hunt as December dawns? Not even close—the defense is still a mess. But with Andrew Luck playing well and Marlon Mack keying a suddenly solid running game, the idea can’t be entirely dismissed Womens Malik Hooker Jersey , either.The rest of the AFC SouthTexansESPN: 16th (17th Last Week)USA Today: 17th (17th LW)Yahoo!

Ebron said Tuesday that he’s set Gronkowski’s mark as his goal for the coming season.“I believe Gronk still holds the record for most touchdowns, which is 17,” Ebron said, via the . “So if I want to do anything that’s gonna be real spectacular or anything that’s gonna be really good, I gotta go get 17. And if I go get 17, what do I do? I help my team win games. I did that Andrew Luck Jersey White , proved that and I feel like if I’m at my best, I feel like this team will be at their best.”Ebron said he believes the Colts defense will be a dangerous one and that’s been a familiar refrain throughout the offseason in Indianapolis. Andrew Luck‘s ability to find Ebron in the end zone is a big part of those predictions and they stand a pretty good chance of coming true even if Ebron falls short of the record.

Mike Tomlin sighed and let out a sentence that Womens Malik Hooker Jersey , after 13 years on the job, surprised the Pittsburgh Steelers coach for the sincerity with which he meant it. Considering what his team has endured during the first half of a wildly uneven season, it was hard to blame him."It's good to be sitting at 4-4," Tomlin said after the Steelers held on to beat the Indianapolis Colts 26-24 on Sunday. "I never thought I'd hear myself say that."He never thought he'd have to. But that was before franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was lost for the year in mid-September with a right elbow injury. Before backup Mason Rudolph was knocked unconscious against Baltimore. Before a 1-4 start that had the Steelers on the brink of irrelevance.Not so much anymore.Pittsburgh is very much alive in the muddled AFC after pulling out a third straight victory, one built on another electrifying play by safety Minkah Fitzpatrick — whose 96-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter revived the Steelers after another slow start — and a dash of luck when Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri's go-ahead 43-yard field goal attempt with 1:14 remaining was an ugly, low snap-hook that went nowhere near the uprights in the open end of Heinz Field."We know he's a great kicker Andrew Luck Jersey White ," Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward said. "We just tried to get after him, get your hands up, see if we could get another one."The Steelers had blocked an extra point attempt by Vinatieri in the third quarter. The 47-year-old managed to get the ball over a sea of outstretched hands this time, but the NFL all-time leading scorer's 707th career attempt started left and stayed left. A week after his 55-yarder in the waning seconds against Denver propelled the Colts (5-3) to their third straight victory, Vinatieri could only shrug his shoulders after missing his fifth of the season in 17 attempts, his most in any season since 2012."I just missed it Andrew Luck Jersey ," Vinatieri said. "I have to do better than that. Just pulled it to the left."His mistake dropped the Colts out of first in the AFC South. Indianapolis (5-3) now trails Houston (6-3) by a half-game and may have to go forward without quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who left in the second quarter with a left knee injury and did not return. Veteran Brian Hoyer came on and threw for 168 yards and three scores, but his pick-six to Fitzpatrick helped the Steelers get off the mat as the Colts found themselves on the wrong side of the edge for the first time in a month.Indianapolis came in having won five of six by a combined 19 points. Each of the Colts' eight games this season has been decided by a touchdown or less."I think that's the NFL, really," Hoyer said after his first extended action since Oct. 15, 2017 Womens Darius Leonard Jersey , when he played for San Francisco. "Pretty much every Sunday each game is going to come down to that fourth quarter."This time, the Steelers survived.Rudolph threw for 191 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Backup running back Trey Edmunds ran for a career-high 73 yards and Chris Boswell kicked four field goals as the Steelers held on despite mustering just 273 total yards. Yet it was just enough thanks to a defense that forced three turnovers and produced five sacks. The Colts came in having allowed 11 sacks all year."It was great to beat that team," Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree said. "A lot of people said we hadn't really beat 'a team' — beaten anybody with a winning record — so we had to go out and show that we had it in us to go out there to compete with a team like that."FITZPATRICK STRIKES AGAINThe Steelers paid a hefty price in September when they traded a 2020 first-round pick to Miami for Fitzpatrick. All he's done in six games is a little bit of everything. His interception was his fourth of the season and third in the span of six days. His 96-yard sprint to the end zone tied the game when it appeared the Colts were ready to go up by double digits. It was the second-longest pick six in the regular season in franchise history behind Martin Kottler's 99-yard return against the Chicago Cardinals in 1933, back when the Steelers were known as the Pirates.Asked what he was thinking when the ball was in his hands, Fitzpatrick said simply, "Score."LACES OUT?Indianapolis punter/holder Rigoberto Sanchez said the laces on Vinatieri's late attempt were facing toward the kicker instead of away. Colts head coach Frank Reich stressed he still has "all the confidence in the world in Adam" and said the snap and hold "wasn't a crystal clean operation."Sanchez said he and long snapper Luke Rhodes will try to address the issue going forward."Luke and I try to be the best we can be for Vinnie Peyton Manning Jersey White ," Sanchez said. "The operation has to be clean for him to be able to work. We have to be better."INJURIESColts: Lost C Ryan Kelly in the first quarter with what the team called a "burner."Steelers: Edmunds and WR Ryan Switzer are both dealing with rib injuries. FB Rosie Nix left after aggravating a knee injury that sidelined him for five games earlier in the year.UP NEXTColts: Welcome the Miami Dolphins to Lucas Oil Stadium next Sunday.Steelers: Finish a rare three-game homestand next Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. T.Y. Hilton and Aaron Rodgers have something in common.The Packers quarterback said after the team practiced with the Texans last week that he is not a proponent of working with other teams during training camp. The Colts are doing the same with the Browns this week and Hilton shares Rodgers’ opinion of sharing the field with the opposition.“I’m not a fan of joint practices,” Hilton said, via FOX59.com.Hilton acknowledges there’s a lot of “excitement” at the sessions, but his quarrel with joint practices is that “every time you see them there’s fights breaking out.”Colts head coach Frank Reich said that he and Browns counterpart Freddie Kitchens have addressed the need to avoid fights, but Hilton’s desire to avoid any upset may be related to how camp has played out thus far. Hilton said he thinks he’s having the best camp of his career as last year’s ankle injury healed and allowed him “to get back healthy, train how I want to train” heading into the summer.

If the video from Las Vegas had involved almost anyone else Amari Cooper Cowboys Jersey , no one would have batted an eye. But because it was Ezekiel Elliott bumping a security guard, the NFL likely will review the incident, Charles Robinson of Yahoo.com reports.The league did not respond to multiple requests for comment from PFT over the past week, but the report comes as no surprise considering the running back’s history.After a legal battle, Elliott served a six-game suspension in 2017 for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. The NFL informed Elliott then that he could face further discipline for additional contact with authorities, though “it was not spelled out what the threshold would ultimately be to trigger another personal conduct violation,” per Robinson.Robinson, citing a source in the league’s executive branch, added that a video incident of Elliott pulling down the shirt of a woman and exposing her breast during a 2017 St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dallas was deemed a personal conduct violation despite no arrest or complaint from the woman. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones and owner Jerry Jones both have dismissed any concern about the most recent incident. But then https://www.thecowboyslockerroom.com/authentic-leighton-vander-esch-jersey , the Cowboys also never expected the NFL to suspend the two-time rushing champion for the domestic abuse allegations made against Elliott by an ex-girlfriend.Las Vegas police working a music festival Elliott attended last weekend placed him in handcuffs but did not arrest him. The security guard did not want to press charges after Elliott bodied him backward and gave him a forearm into a metal gate.NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will determine whether he perceives “actual or threatened physical violence against another person” in the Las Vegas video, according to Robinson. The Cowboys star running back’s future has been discussed quite a lot." Dallas Cowboys GeneralNFL insider predicts Ezekiel Elliott won’t get extended by the Cowboys this OR next offseasonNew,155commentsThe Cowboys star running back’s future has been discussed quite a lot.CDTDrafting Ezekiel Elliott three years ago (time sure does fly) dramatically changed the Dallas Cowboys. There’s no denying that.Dallas are winners of two of the last three NFC East titles, and they have yet to post a record under .500 in the time that Elliott has been their lead back. Of course, the year that they did not win their division saw their all-world runner suspended for six games, and he’s made headlines this offseason for other troubling reasons. This makes the contractual status of Ezekiel Elliott a bit more complicated than your average player. The Cowboys are already dealing with plenty of obstacles in the financial realm of football as they’re reportedly working on deals for quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper. This is coming right after they already signed pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence to the richest contract in team history, and other key contributors like Byron Jones are also awaiting new deals.When you consider the running back position as a whole in today’s game of football it’s not as valuable as the ones the above-mentioned players play: QB, WR, DE Amari Cooper Jersey White , CB. You can debate those merits all day, plus the merits of Zeke’s off-the-field circumstances, but the fact is there is, at the very least, a debate when it comes to Elliott’s future deal.Zeke is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract and the Cowboys already picked up his fifth-year option. This means that the team has him on the books through the 2020 season and if they truly wanted to they could place the franchise tag on him after that, a la Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Obviously, if Elliott got a new deal before then that would render the hypothetical moot, but they may hold more water than you think. According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the Cowboys may not extend Elliott this or next offseason.Graziano is quite familiar with the Cowboys and NFC East in general so this coming from him is worth noting. We’ve heard Stephen Jones say at different points that the Cowboys are focused on long-term deals for their stars Womens Michael Gallup Jersey , Zeke certainly qualifies as a star, but this is one of the first times a report has surfaced that insinuates the franchise tag could be in plan for the 2021 season.As mentioned, Elliott is one of the top running backs in the world, heck he might even be the very best. But the reality is that the position as a whole doesn’t hold as much value as other ones in the game of football. When you factor in off-the-field concerns on top of that, it makes sense as to why the Cowboys would be cautious about paying him big-time money.Perhaps watching what happened to the Los Angeles Rams after paying Todd Gurley a year ago has served as a cautionary tale for the Cowboys. As Graziano mentions, if you know that you’ve got elite production for a moderate price for the next three years, what would be the rush to get rid of that luxury?
