Vikings to face Saints in 2009 NFC championship rematch

12 January 2018

After the tackle, Newton was slow to get back onto his feet.

First emerge the anticipation and athleticism to bounce outside of the edge pressure, and then the ability to make a perfectly accurate throw on the run to lead Thomas to the sideline and up the field.

Newton said after the game Sunday that "precautionary concussion protocol things" happened, but "it wasn't my head". It was my eye. "My helmet had come down low enough over my eyelid and it got pressed by the player's stomach". "I think it broke the seal for us offensively and, obviously, got the crowd rolling".

A change in the National Football League concussion protocol enacted last month states: "A player who stumbles and/or falls to the ground when trying to stand, unrelated to an orthopedic injury, should be sent directly to the locker room to undergo the standard locker room exam".

"When he has time, he's going to find players downfield", Carolina head coach Ron Rivera said. "I mean, he's gone with the grandma hat and the onesie". "They use him as a receiver some, he catches the ball some on screens".

Rivera said when he walked on the field to check on Newton, the quarterback told him he'd been poked in the eye.

South African Zuma to set up anti-graft probe
The ANC's former head of intelligence, Zuma, 75, took office in May 2009 just weeks after prosecutors dropped graft charges against him.

Then there's Brees, whom Anthony Barr marveled at while watching the Saints' 31-26, first-round victory over Carolina on Sunday.

Even before Brees's vintage performance, Payton had made it a throwback weekend by having members of the Saints' Super Bowl-winning team from the 2009 season on hand.

"I thought the Saints did great but oh my gosh, I thought I was going to have a heart attack", said one female Saints fan over the sound of fireworks going off.

Critics have accused the Panthers of ignoring the NFL's concussion rules after the 28-year-old appeared to collapse moments after slamming into Onyemata's chest.

"He was a lot like me", said Johnson, who came out of Southern Cal with more fanfare as the No. 1 overall pick by the New York Jets in the 1996 NFL Draft.

Newton returned on the next series and threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Christian McCaffrey on the third play of the possession.

Warriors vs. Rockets odds
All in all, Green is averaging 16.8 points per game with the Rockets , hitting 56.8 percent of his shots beyond the arc. Hopefully, both Harden and Durant will be healthy when the teams face each other again in Oakland on January 20.

USA Today's Nancy Armour wrote that the NFL should "hammer" the Panthers hile noting the league doesn't care about its players. Case Keenum won the starting QB job, throwing for 3,547 yards on 325 of 481 passing, good for a 67.6% completion percentage with 22 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. And he battled dropped passes for much of his career, while bouncing around from Miami to San Francisco to Carolina to Arizona, back to Carolina, and now to New Orleans.

The Panthers looked strong early on defense, holding the Saints to just one first down (acquired via penalty) in their first two drives.

"We've done it before so we know we can do it", Campbell said. That's tough. That's a tough one to handle. Tom Brady is the most accomplished quarterback ever, but I guarantee at 40 he's not making that throw. "We have a fun-loving group and that's why I love coming to work every day because I get to be in the locker room with those guys".

Through eight games both combined for just 2.8 yards per carry and a single Week 8 touchdown.

On the Saints' first drive of the second quarter, Brees was 7/7 for 77 yards, finishing the nine-play drive with a nine-yard touchdown pass to tight end Josh Hill.

Team of the Year is announced
De Gea was one of Manchester United's most important players as they claimed two trophies in 2017, including the Europa League. UEFA announced Thursday a team of 11 players deemed by fans as the best performers of 2017.
