Noel Acciari out six weeks with fractured finger

The Boston Bruins announced that forward Noel Acciari suffered a fractured finger in Thursday’s opening night win over the Nashville Predators.

The 26-year-old had surgery on his left index finger and will be out at least six weeks.

Acciari posted two goals and three assists last season in 29 games.

The Bruins had already lost forward David Backes for at least three weeks as he undergoes treatment for diverticulitis, while Patrice Bergeron is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

The money just wasn’t there, Carmona said. I knew I had to keep my players on a big stage, or another AAU team was going to grab them. The team was a little unorganized, and I didn’t think it was the best situation for my kids.

If we know anything after the first half of the season, it’s that punting the ball to Pettis is a very bad idea. He returned punts for touchdowns in each of Washington’s first three games, tying NCAA records for career return touchdowns (eight) and most consecutive games with a punt return score. Not surprisingly, Pettis leads the nation by a wide margin in punt return average (31.8). He remains Washington’s No. 1 wide receiver as well and has six touchdowns on the season.

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger blames himself for 5 INTs against Jaguars

Ben Roethlisberger pointed the blame directly at himself Sunday after his five interceptions against the Jacksonville Jaguars, arguably his worst game as a Pittsburgh Steeler.

Johnathan Hankins Authentic Jersey When discussing what’s holding the offense back, Roethlisberger said after the 30-9 loss, Maybe I don’t have it anymore.

It was more a stream-of-consciousness moment than a declaration, but the 14-year veteran clearly was affected by the brutal outing.

Rookie Alvin Kamara actually leads the Saints’ running backs in fantasy scoring through the first four games, even though he has 22 fewer touches than Mark Ingram (35 vs. 57). That’s because Kamara has scored two touchdowns, while Ingram hasn’t scored yet. That will likely change going forward, since Ingram is more likely to get goal-line carries. And Ingram’s volume as a runner/receiver still makes him the smarter fantasy bet. But obviously Kamara’s big-play ability gives him the chance to score from anywhere on the field 鈥?and will continue to earn him a larger role in the offense.

I had said earlier this season that I thought the Bucs’ defense/special teams was worth grabbing in fantasy. They currently have 15 points through four games though (3.75 average). Last year, they were averaging 6.75 per game. This is the result of only having four sacks total this year (they had just one going into Week 5). Through four games last year, they had nine.

Both teams are tied for fourth in fewest points allowed at 17.5 per game.

Maybe this is too low. Sam Bradford looked great in Week 1, and since he got hurt Case Keenum has stepped in and actually played pretty well. Keenum’s 65.5 QBR is fifth best in the league, and he ranks a surprising eighth in yards per attempt (7.6). Add in the possible second-half return of Teddy Bridgewater from injury, and the Vikings appear to have some depth at a position where almost everyone lacks it. But the low mark is because of the future, which is a total unknown. Bradford and Bridgewater are both eligible for unrestricted free agency at the end of the season. Both are major health question marks. The Vikings have no idea who’ll be their quarterback in 2018, and honestly they don’t even really know who’ll be available to play the position for them in the second half of this season. Too much mystery here to have any confidence.

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford enjoys seeing Newton at his best, except when he’s facing the Lions.

He’s fun to watch, right? Stafford said. The guy’s an MVP, a big-time player.

Stafford is a big-time player in his own right. He’s off to a strong start, throwing seven touchdown passes and just one interception.

Detroit (3-1) is a half-yard shy of being the only undefeated team in the NFC. The Lions lost their last home game when, upon an officials’ review, Golden Tate was ruled just short of the goal line in the closing seconds against Atlanta. The game ended on that play, because a 10-second runoff was required after the review because the Lions didn’t have any timeouts left.

The Lions bounced back from that gut-wrenching defeat by topping Minnesota 14-7 on the road.

Turnovers have been a major factor in Detroit’s quick start. It leads the league with a plus-9 in that category. The Lions’ 11 takeaways are tied for the league lead.vikings_087

Many owners immediately argued otherwise.

We need to find a way where Trump doesn’t win, one said, and that meant using leverage as employers to end the protests. Another said, We’ll get our guys in line. It was clear to many in the room that this was a regional issue as much as a political one, with owners’ tolerance for kneeling shaped more by their fans in local markets than their own personal politics. Dan Snyder, who had joined his players in arms at FedEx Field on Sunday night, was in an especially divisive market and was particularly dismissive of the kneeling. It was raw for a lot of owners, an owner says. Some teams, such as the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos, had been dealing with the protests for more than a year, and 49ers owner Jed York argued that it was a nuanced topic with no easy answers and that it would take time to navigate. We need to respect First Amendment rights, regardless of our personal feelings of the actions involved, York told the room.

The Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys engaged in a playoff shootout in January that will remain in the memory of both teams’ fans for quite some time.

So naturally, the NFL powers-that-be set up a rematch as the Packers return to Arlington, Texas, to face the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium.

Matthew Dellavedova Womens Jersey Thanks to the quick return, Dallas coach Jason Garrett spent more time than he wanted answering questions about a particular play from the Packers’ NFC Divisional playoff victory on the Cowboys’ home turf.

Dallas backed Green Bay into a 3rd-and-20 play from the Packers’ 33 with 12 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the game tied at 31. But instead of kneeling and heading to overtime, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers spun to his left, avoided the Cowboys’ pass rush and threw a 35-yard dart to tight end Jared Cook, who managed to catch the ball at the sideline and keep his feet in bounds. On the next play, Packers kicker Mason Crosby nailed a 51-yard field goal as time expired to win the game.
