      The New York Giants were denied permission to interview and hire Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski as their offensive coordinator,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

      Stefanski was recently passed over for the Vikings offensive coordinator job. The Giants and their new coach, who was the offensive coordinator in Minnesota before leaving for New York,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, Pat Shurmur, had been waiting for several weeks to see how things panned out with Stefanski and the Vikings. It didn't turn out in their favor.

      Stefanski and Shurmur were known to have a strong working relationship, a somewhat surprising outcome given Shurmur's relationship with the organization and Stefanski losing out to former Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo for the OC position. The Giants now remain without an offensive coordinator. Some possible candidates that have been mentioned in recent weeks are former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley, but the Vikings decided to deny that reunion, who also has a previous working relationship with Shurmur.

      The Eagles could also deny the Giants permission to speak with Staley. He remains under contract with Philadelphia, according to a source.

      The Eagles recently lost their quarterbacks coach,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey, Frank Reich,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, and their offensive coordinator,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey, is in the running for the Indianapolis Colts head-coaching job.

      The offensive coordinator job with the Giants does not include playcalling duties. Shurmur intends to call plays in New York,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey, much as he did for most of the past two seasons in Minnesota.

      Stefanski,Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey, would have had playcalling duties as the Vikings' offensive coordinator. Instead,Womens Joe Montana Jersey, 35,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey, he will remain a part of Mike Zimmer's coaching staff for at least one more year as they decide how to proceed at the quarterback position.

      Shurmur and Stefanski helped the Vikings get the most out of backup Case Keenum this past season. Keenum,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey, an impending free agent, threw 22 touchdown passes and seven interceptions after taking over as the starter for Sam Bradford.

      He would have had increased responsibility with the Giants,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, most notably putting together the weekly offensive game plans.

      Stefanski, the son of Memphis Grizzlies executive vice president Ed Stefanski,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey, was believed to be Shurmur's top choice.

      Shurmur does have most of his staff together with the Giants. Two holes remain at offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

      New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reflected on his 2017 MVP season and the Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles with an Instagram post on Friday expressing a message of thanks and gratitude.

      "It has taken me a few days to reflect on our SB loss as well as the great season our team had,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey," Brady wrote. "There are many emotions when you come up short of your goal. And they are all part of learning and growing in this journey of life. Learning turns everything into a postitive. And the number one feeling I have had the past 4 days is gratitude."

      Brady's Instagram post came the morning after the Boston Herald published a story by columnist Ron Borges on Thursday night that Brady was seeking a contract similar to Jimmy Garoppolo's and that he would skip organized team activities if he didn't get it.

      --Former Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo was named offensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings.

      DeFilippo spent two seasons as a position coach with the Eagles and was previously offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns.

      "We are very excited to add John to our staff. We took our time with the search and made sure we left no stone unturned to get the right fit. He has a track record of success and has proven to be a great teacher. We feel John will have good chemistry with our team and we are all eager to get to work,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey," Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said in a press release.

      cornerback Richard Sherman expects to remain with the Seattle Seahawks in 2018,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey,--Despite plenty of speculation to the contrary,Womens Joe Montana Jersey, the final year of his current contract.

      Sherman told reporters,When asked Thursday if there are any doubts about whether he will be on the team's roster next season, "Not in my mind."

      and he will cost $11 million in base salary and $13.2 million against the cap in 2018. With several other veterans set to become free agents this March or entering the final year of their contracts,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey,The four-time Pro Bowler will turn 30 in March and is coming off of a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The Seahawks openly shopped him in trades last offseason,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, many have expected the team to cut ties with Sherman this offseason.

      --The Pittsburgh Steelers announced that they signed offensive lineman B.J. Finney for the 2018 campaign.

      Finney was slated to become an exclusive rights free agent. He has started seven games over the past two seasons and plays both guard and center.

      who started four games in 2017,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey,The 26-year-old Finney, originally joined the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2015. Finney has played in 27 games the past two seasons.

      --The Detroit Lions agreed to terms with general manager Bob Quinn on an extension to his current contract following this week's head-coaching hire,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, the team announced. Quinn has been with the Lions since 2016.

      The extension matches the length of new head coach Matt Patricia's deal with the team. Both reportedly now have five-year deals. The extended contract term for Quinn ensures organizational stability for the GM and head coach,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey, the team said in a news release.

      Patricia's hiring was made official on Monday after his time as the New England Patriots' defensive coordinator came to an end following the team's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl. Patricia was Quinn's first head-coaching hire after Jim Caldwell held the job for Quinn's first two years in Detroit.

      Graduate transfer quarterback Alex Thomson plans to play next fall at Marshall University, he told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday night. Thomson informed the school of his decision and said he plans to sign a financial aid agreement to attend the school on Wednesday.

      is a former star at FCS Wagner College and picked Marshall over Baylor and Tennessee. He’s considered an NFL talent,Womens Joe Montana Jersey, 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey,Thomson,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey, as both 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello and former NFL star Phil Simms both have publicly pegged Thomson as a sure-fire NFL player.

      because of the position the program is in to win right away. (Tennessee was offering a blueshirt,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey, in part,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey,Thomson took official visits to both Marshall and Baylor and said the decision to go to Marshall came, which meant he couldn’t officially visit and wouldn’t be on scholarship until the first practice of summer camp.)

      Marshall went 8-5 last season with a bowl victory over Colorado State. Thomson said the Marshall coaching staff pitched him on playing with nine returning starters on offense. “I just think Marshall is the best fit for me,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey,” Thomson told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday night. “I had great communication with the coaching staff. I can see myself winning a conference championship there.”

      who came from Sam Houston State. Last season, Tim Cramsey,Thomson was impressed with new Marshall offensive coordinator,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey, Cramsey’s offense led the FCS in scoring offense (43.3) by nearly five points per game and total offense (538.1) by nearly 15 yards per game. Quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe led the nation in passing yards per game (357.4).

      where in 2016 he threw for 16 touchdowns,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey,Marshall’s multiple offense will include no-huddle looks,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, 2, RPOs and dropbacks out of the shotgun. Thomson thrived as a dropback quarterback at Wagner,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey,436 yards and just five interceptions.

      Scangarello served as his offensive coordinator there in 2016 and told Yahoo Sports last month he has “no doubt” that Thomson is an NFL quarterback. “He’s just scratching the surface as a player,Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey,” he said. “He’s as good as the backup quarterbacks in the NFL right now.”

      Thomson will be studying toward his MBA at Marshall. He will graduate from Wagner with a degree in finance this spring and will be immediately eligible for the 2018 season at Marshall. He expects to have two years of eligibility remaining,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey, as he missed his freshman season with a PCL injury and played only two games in 2017 because of a shoulder injury.

      Next week, the Pyeongchang Games will open the first men's hockey Olympic event since 1994 without talent from the NHL, whose owners snubbed the Games in a money dispute.

      Instead, largely unheralded players from European, collegiate and minor-league squads will have the unexpected opportunity of competing for Olympic gold.

      There are 15 players with NHL experience on the US roster, with captain Brian Gionta, 39,authentic Jaromir Jagr jersey, just retiring after last season.

      "I like the hunger of our team," US coach Tony Granato said. "We have guys who are really motivated,adidas Anze Kopitar jersey, guys who will be realising their dream.

      "There has been some talk of not having the NHL guys in (means) you don't have highly skilled guys. That's a bad representation. There are a lot of great players."

      Panthers interim general manager Marty Hurney will meet with an NFL investigator Friday to answer his ex-wife's claims of harassment.

      Hurney's attorney Kathleen Lucchesi said Hurney will meet with Lisa Friel,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, in Charlotte. Hurney was placed on a paid administrative leave Wednesday by Carolina while the NFL investigates the matter, the NFL's special counsel for investigations,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, even though his ex-wife Jeannie Hurney has withdrawn her complaint.

      Hurney is one of four men who have interviewed for the team's full-time general manager position.

      His current contract expires June 30.

      Lucchesi told The Associated Press in an email that Hurney is ''very upset'' by the allegations ''first,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, and second,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, because they are not true, because she made them at a time she and the rest of Charlotte knew Marty was interviewing for the GM job with the Panthers.''

      Houston's Jimmy Raye III,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, Buffalo's Lake Dawson and San Francisco's Martin Mayhew have also interviewed for the full-time GM position.

      ''He is hopeful that it won't affect his consideration for the Panthers GM position,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey,'' Lucchesi said of Hurney.

      Marty and Jeannie Hurney divorced in 2013.

      Hurney remarried in 2016 and has a 14-month old child at home.

      ''Ms. Hurney has a history of making fictitious claims against Marty since they divorced,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey,'' Lucchesi said. ''Even though Marty has remarried,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, Ms. Hurney has continued her baseless and malicious assault on Marty's character. It's unfortunate that Marty now has to deal with the fallout of Ms. Hurney's vindictive conduct.''

      Hurney remains in limbo while awaiting the outcome of the NFL investigation while the Panthers approach a busy offseason with free agency and the NFL draft looming.

      The Panthers brought back Hurney to be their interim general manager in July after owner Jerry Richardson fired Dave Gettleman days before the start of training camp. Hurney was the Panthers GM from 1998 through 2012.

      Hurney is credited for building the core of a team that reached the Super Bowl two years ago.

      Even though the complaint has been withdrawn,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the league would continue to review the case under the league's personal conduct policy.

      Quarterbacks will rule the NFL's offseason.

      several quarterbacks will find new riches and many teams will land new QBs in 2018.,Beginning with Alex Smith going to Washington when the league's new year starts next month and Jimmy Garoppolo agreeing to a record-breaking deal with San Francisco on Thursday

      and some believe Josh McDaniels' sudden change of heart this week in spurning the Indianapolis Colts was related to doubts about Andrew Luck's health.,Womens A.J. Green Jersey,Tom Brady may have been denied another championship but not his coordinator

      McDaniels is staying in New England to help the Patriots bounce back from their 41-33 loss to Philadelphia in Super Bowl 52 .,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey,Either way

      but also an abundance of talent at the position in franchise QB Carson Wentz and Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.,The Eagles aren't just celebrating their first championship since 1960

      the Eagles will have a huge bargaining chip to help restock their roster.,Should Wentz's recovery from knee surgery go well

      just like Aaron Rodgers ' repaired collarbone in Green Bay and DeShaun Watson 's torn ACL in Houston.,Wentz's injury rehab will be closely watched this offseason

      Those teams figure to be contenders for Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta if their quarterbacks are healthy. A dozen other teams will either jockey for their next star or dole out big bucks to keep the one they have.

      Case Keenum and Sam Bradford.,Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees lead an exceptionally large group of veteran quarterbacks lined up for big paydays and possibly new opportunities that includes the Minnesota Vikings' trio of Teddy Bridgewater

      Garoppolo, Brady's longtime backup, got a five-year contract from the 49ers that will pay him a reported $137.5 million to keep him off the free-agent market without forcing the team to use the one-year franchise tag.

      NFL Network first reported the terms of the contract, which is worth $27.5 million per season to top the previous record set by Detroit's Matthew Stafford last year by $500,000 per year - but presumably will soon be surpassed by Brees or Cousins.

      pushing his record as a starter to 7-0.,San Francisco acquired Garoppolo from New England before the trade deadline for a 2018 second-round pick. He led the 49ers to five straight wins to end the season

      Teams that miss out on one of the prized free agents can look to the draft, which features Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Lamar Jackson and Mason Rudolph.

      The quarterback carousel began in the days before the Super Bowl when Kansas City agreed to trade Smith to the Redskins.

      The deal, which cannot be finalized until March 14, spells the end of Cousins' time in Washington and hands the Chiefs' job to Patrick Mahomes III, the 10th pick in last year's draft out of Texas Tech.

      So, Smith, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, moves on to his third team just as he's coming off the best season of his 13-year career.

      ''I think Washington is getting a phenomenal player, a great leader,'' Rodgers said last week while discussing the league's current quarterback commotion.

      ''Now you've got Kirk Cousins,Womens John Ross Jersey, what's going to happen with him? You've got probably five guys that are going to get drafted in the first round, Jimmy Garoppolo and his situation.

      ''There's a lot of moving pieces.''

      Rodgers could find himself one of them.,Womens Jim Brown Jersey,In the not-too-distant future

      Rodgers, 34, has two years left on his contract and if he stays healthy in 2018, he'll be in line for a mega payday that could obliterate any of the deals that will be signed.

      Rodgers told the AP last week that he wants to play well into his 40s and might have to finish his career in another team's uniform as Brett Favre did.

      ''I think you have to be humble enough to realize if it could happen to Brett,Authentic John Ross Jersey, it can happen to you,'' Rodgers said.

      who haven't been back to the playoffs since Peyton Manning retired a champion two years ago.,Among the teams looking for an upgrade are the Denver Broncos

      '' Miller said.,Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller said he trusts general manager John Elway to fix that in the next few weeks: ''We have a Hall of Fame quarterback running the show who's going to get the right guy

      too.,Miller has a tip for his GM

      too. I could roll with that.'',''No disrespect to Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch, but I would love to play with Kirk Cousins, we just took off. Kirk's an elite starter,'' Miller said. ''When Peyton came to Denver

      Brady is the gold standard of quarterbacks.,With eight trips to the Super Bowl and five rings

      Yet,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey, who showed just how important it is for teams to also have depth at the position., this time he was outdueled by Foles

      '' Eagles tight end Zach Ertz said. ''The guy is the best quarterback to ever play the game. That team is phenomenal. They are coached amazingly.'',Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey,''To get in a shootout with that guy on the other team is probably not ideal for anyone - ever

      the Patriots were beaten by a journeyman QB who contemplated retirement not long ago after he kept losing his starting job with his employers in perpetual search of a better option.,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey,Yet

      stepping in to deliver Philadelphia its first Super Bowl title.,Foles turned into a flawless fill-in after Wentz got hurt in December

      and his Super Bowl performance bumped his name up on the long list of coveted quarterbacks.,Foles has one year left on his two-year deal

      ''He's amazing,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, we had all the confidence in the world in him.'','' Ertz said. ''The past three weeks he's been playing out of his mind. People panicked when Carson went down.

      MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Not only was the Philadelphia Eagles' knockout of New England a thrill-a-minute slugfest, it produced some of the biggest calls the Super Bowl has ever seen.

      For once, such as Philly's two second-half touchdowns that survived reviews at the NFL's league headquarters, the whistles didn't go the Patriots' way, including Zach Ertz's game-winner just before the two-minute warning of the 41-33 thriller.

      There was Belichick's head-scratching decision not to play Super Bowl 49 star Malcolm Butler on defense against a team that would rack up 41 points and Danny Amendola's incompletion to Tom "Butterfingers " Brady on a gadget play that backfired.

      "Yeah, I caught it" in practice, Brady said. "Didn't catch it tonight."

      That was but one of the Patriots' early stumbles that put them in catch-up mode.

      They flubbed a field goal when Stephen Gostkowski's holder, punter Ryan Allen, mishandled the snap, and Gostkowski was wide left on an extra point,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey, leaving the Patriots trailing by double digits at halftime.

      One reason for Philly's 22-12 halftime lead was game MVP Nick Foles becoming the first quarterback to throw and catch a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl.

      Tight end Trey Burton, had never thrown an NFL pass,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey, a college quarterback, and Foles had never caught one until they teamed up on fourth-and-goal from the 1.

      It's not as if the Eagles were perfect. They, missed an extra point and also the 2-point conversion on their next touchdown,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, too, and coach Doug Pederson's decision to chase points early on loomed large when Tom Brady put the Patriots ahead 33-32 with his second touchdown strike to Rob Gronkowski with less than 10 minutes remaining.

      That's when the Eagles and offensive coordinator Frank Reich made their best decisions of the game. Foles executed the drive of a lifetime that ended with Ertz diving across the goal line after hauling in an 11-yard catch.

      Reminiscent of Jesse James' score for Pittsburgh against New England that was wiped out on review.

      Ertz,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey, whose Super Bowl triumph matched his wife, Julie, lost control as he landed but grabbed the ball. The Eagles and their fans cautiously celebrated while awaiting Al Riveron's crew in New York, who won a world championship in soccer in 2015, which upheld the score, much to the Patriots' chagrin.

      Amendola, for one, thought it was the right call.

      "They called it a catch, three feet down and a football move," he said. "I call it a catch."

      Soon afterward, Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz made his best call of the game.

      Unable to get to Brady all game, the Eagles' exhausted defenders were finally able to catch their breath during Foles' 14-play, 75-yard drive that included a fourth down conversion and ate up more than seven minutes of game clock.

      "We just couldn't get off the field on third down or make a play to get the ball back to our offense," cornerback Stephon Gilmore said.

      "We didn't do a good job of slowing them down, we didn't stop them at all. So," defensive back Duron Harmon said. "I mean, that's exactly why they are the Super Bowl champs and we're sitting here in second place."

      Maybe if they had Butler in?

      "It doesn't matter," declared Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty.

      Coach Bill Belichick said he played Eric Rowe in place of Butler for strategic, not disciplinary reasons, but he declined to elaborate on his move that surprised his team just before kickoff.

      Rowe, said Butler could have certainly helped the Patriots, himself, who became the first team to lose an NFL game with a quarterback throwing for 500 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

      "Yeah,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, we could have used anybody," he said.

      Still,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, Brady was poised for another of his patented Super Bowl comebacks, hitting Gronk for 8 yards.

      But on second-and-2 from his 33,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, the Eagles finally got to Brady, denying him a sixth ring and a fifth Super Bowl MVP honor.

      Brandon Graham delivered one of the few defensive highlights in the most prolific offensive game in NFL history, beating Shaq Mason off the line,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, reaching his left hand out and punching the ball out of Brady's hands for a strip-sack. Rookie Derek Barnett pounced on the loose ball and Eagles fans began celebrating their first title since winning the 1960 NFL championship.

      Brady had made the late-game comeback a specialty in winning a record five Super Bowl titles, including last year's rally from 28-3 down to beat Atlanta in overtime. He also led late game-winning scoring drives to beat the Rams,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, Carolina and Seattle.

      The Eagles showed no sign of slowing Brady down on Sunday as he threw for a playoff-record 505 yards and three touchdowns, carving up the defense at will on a night when the Patriots did not punt once or turn it over until Brady's late fumble.

      "It's tough to lose these games,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey," Brady said. But "you can't win the game if you're not in the game."

      And Brady and Belichick have been to eight of them.

      Eight's enough, maybe.

      Coordinators Matt Patricia and Josh McDaniels are ready for their own head coaching gigs.

      The previous time the Patriots played Philadelphia in the Super Bowl, they hoisted their third trophy in four years. Then, they lost both coordinators and wouldn't hoist another one for a decade.

      Then, there's the meeting with Brady, coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft to smooth things over after a reported falling-out following the trade of backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers.

      Oh, and Gronk hinted that he'd give retirement some thought, too.

      NBCSN’s coverage of 2017-18 NHL season continues on Tuesday, as the St. Louis Blues host the Minnesota Wild at 8:00 p.m. ET. You can watch the game online by clicking here.

      The Wild currently own the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. That’s pretty impressive considering how difficult things have been for them away from home. Heading into tonight’s tilt in St. Louis,adida Taylor Hall jersey, they own a 10-15-1 record away from Xcel Energy Center.

      Of all the teams currently in the postseason,adidas Cory Schneider jersey, only the Pittsburgh Penguins have as poor of a record (10-5-2) on the road this season.

      To make matters worse,authentic Travis Hamonic jersey, they’re coming off an ugly 6-1 loss in Dallas on Saturday night.

      “We definitely change how we play when we get down like that on the road,adidas Ryan McDonagh jersey,” goalie Devan Dubnyk said, per the Minneapolis StarTribune. “Obviously, when you have confidence like we do at home, you just feel like you’re going to win every game so you don’t really think otherwise. That’s obviously not the case on the road right now. That’s when it becomes that much more important to just really focus and concentrate on being simple and playing our game.”

      The last couple of weeks have gone relatively well for the Blues, as they’ve managed to rattle off six victories in their last eight games (they had a disappointing loss to Arizona during that stretch).

      Goalie Carter Hutton has been a big reason for the Blues’ recent run of success. Hutton, who has been between the pipes for each of St. Louis’ last six wins,authentic Taylor Hall jersey, has overtaken Jake Allen as the team’s starter.

      “This is not one or two weeks that he’s been playing well — he’s been playing at this level all season long,authentic Cory Schneider jersey,” head coach Mike Yeo said of Hutton’s success,adidas John Tavares jersey, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “So I think it would be very unfair to him to not give him that credit. And you have to say,authentic Ryan McDonagh jersey, they all have a different timeline of when they reach their potential, maybe it is. He’s played behind some very good goaltenders. They all develop at a different rate, when they reach their peak. And obviously,adidas Travis Hamonic jersey, I don’t think any of us should see any reason why we shouldn’t give him that belief.”

      The 32-year-old has a 14-4-1 record with a 1.61 goals-against-average and a .947 save percentage in 2017-18.

      The Blues currently sit in third spot in the Central Division, but they’re just one point clear of Dallas, who is in the first Wild Card spot and six points clear of Minnesota,authentic John Tavares jersey, who has two games in hand.

      In the days before the Super Bowl,Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey, there were rumors that Josh McDaniels to the Indianapolis Colts didn’t seem like a sure thing. Maybe he was having cold feet.

      In the end McDaniels did have cold feet and decided to not take the Colts job … after he apparently accepted it.

      In one of the wildest stories of this or any other NFL offseason,Authentic Calais Campbell Jersey, hours after the team had announced he agreed to terms to be their head coach. McDaniels is headed back to the New England Patriots as their offensive coordinator,Womens Adam Thielen Jersey, McDaniels pulled out of the Colts job on Tuesday,Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, and presumably to have the chance to be the heir apparent to Bill Belichick. The story was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

      Schefter said Patriots owner Robert Kraft was talking to McDaniels over the last 48 hours and ended up “sweetening his contract” for him to return as offensive coordinator. Another report from ESPN, said Belichick being in place as head coach for 2018 and stability for his family were factors in his return. ESPN said he had told the Colts throughout the process he wanted time to mull the decision with his family, by Mike Reiss, and ultimately decided against taking the job.

      The Belichick part of the story is interesting. Because from the outside looking in, it would appear that Belichick’s future had to play into McDaniels’ decision. McDaniels was terrible as Denver’s head coach,Womens Calais Campbell Jersey, whenever that is. McDaniels will be just 42 next season and can wait out Belichick, and after leaving the Colts at the altar it’s hard to believe he’d get another head coaching job outside of New England. But he would seem to be a good bet to get the Patriots job once Belichick is finished, who will turn 66 this offseason. Nobody knows how long Belichick will coach, but presumably he’ll retire before McDaniels hits age 50.

      The immediate comparison in NFL history is actually to Belichick, but it was in his contract that he would take over the head coaching job from Bill Parcells. Parcells resigned suddenly to keep Belichick,Womens Golden Tate III Jersey, who resigned as New York Jets head coach the day after getting it. Back then Belichick was a defensive coordinator who was pursued by the Patriots,Authentic Adam Thielen Jersey, and Belichick resigned rather than becoming the Jets’ head coach. Belichick ended up in New England after the Patriots gave draft pick compensation to the Jets.

      This is different because McDaniels was free to leave,Authentic Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, but McDaniels hadn’t signed a contract yet., and for weeks it appeared he would. It was reported that he would take the job, though it couldn’t be official until after the Super Bowl because the Patriots were still alive in the playoffs. This episode could lead to a rule change, when all the other openings are filled, since teams don’t want to wait out a candidate unitl after the Super Bowl, then get unexpectedly turned down. Make no mistake, the Colts were put in a truly terrible spot when McDaniels backed out. The Colts announced McDaniels agreed to terms and announced a news conference for Wednesday

      We are excited to welcome Josh McDaniels, who has agreed to terms as our new head coach!

      Press conference scheduled for Wednesday. pic.twitter.com/FIzhqIf2y4

      — Indianapolis Colts (@Colts) February 6, 2018

      Now the Colts have to start over with their coaching search. They thought they had their new head coach, but McDaniels and the Patriots had other ideas.

      * Eagles quarterback Nick Foles wins Super Bowl MVP award

      * Philadelphia win first Super Bowl in franchise history (Recasts)

      MINNEAPOLIS, Feb 4 (Reuters) - For a city that produced one of Hollywood's ultimate underdog stories,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey, the Philadelphia Eagles delivered an equally inspiring script by upsetting the New England Patriots on Sunday for their first Super Bowl title.

      The Eagles were underdogs throughout the NFL playoffs,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, and just as most expected little from fictional Philadelphia boxer Rocky Balboa, few onlookers outside the City of Brotherly Love expected them to beat the defending Super Bowl champions.

      But Philadelphia,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, who embraced their underdog status with some players wearing dog masks throughout the playoffs,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey, stunned New England with a 41-33 victory to cap a remarkable turnaround after finishing last in their division a year ago.

      "We've been doubted since Day One, who caught what proved to be the game-winning touchdown. "This team,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey," said Eagles tight end Zach Ertz, no one picked us. We come out here and we're World Champions."

      The victory set off a wild celebration among the team's many green-clad supporters who made the trek to chilly Minneapolis while uplifting music from "Rocky" blared through the speakers above a field covered in silver and green confetti.

      The Eagles limped into the NFL's postseason with an offense handicapped by a seemingly hopeless backup quarterback following an injury to Carson Wentz in December but Nick Foles proved more than ready to shine on the game's brightest stage.

      Foles, showed no nerves playing in his first Super Bowl and went toe-to-toe with Patriots counterpart Tom Brady, who nearly retired after an unfulfilling 2015 season with the St. Louis Rams, a five-time Super Bowl champion.

      "I felt calm," said Foles, who was named the game's Most Valuable Player after throwing three touchdowns. "We felt confident coming in and we just went out there and played football."

      including to the Patriots in 2005,The Eagles, had long been a tormented franchise and lost in their only two previous Super Bowl appearances, who won three championships in the pre-Super Bowl era, but dug deep to deliver a championship to fans in their unwavering city.

      Trailing by a point late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles moved ahead for good when Foles connected with Ertz on a 11-yard touchdown that held up after a review determined the catch was good to put his team ahead 38-33.

      Philadelphia missed a subsequent two-point conversion attempt to leave the door open for the Patriots with a little less than two-and-a-half minutes to play.

      But in a game when both offenses moved up and down the field effortlessly and combined for a Super Bowl record 1,151 yards, Brady had the ball swatted from his grasp and it was recovered by Philadelphia to all but seal the Patriots' fate.

      The Eagles went on to kick a field goal to extend their lead to eight points and denied the Patriots from engineering a last-minute,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey, game-tying drive.

      COSTLY TURNOVER

      Up 15-6,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, the Eagles had a chance to build a comfortable lead towards the end of the first half but intended receiver Alshon Jeffrey deflected a Foles pass that was intercepted by Patriots defensive back Duron Harmon steps from the end zone.

      The turnover proved costly as the Patriots marched 90 yards back down the field in less than three minutes,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, in a drive that was capped by a James White touchdown to pull within 15-12.

      However,Womens Walter Payton Jersey, the Eagles replied with an impressive drive of their own that resulted in a touchdown on a gutsy trick play on fourth down from the Patriots one-yard line.

      who flipped the ball to tight end Trey Burton,The Eagles, snapped the ball to rookie running back Corey Clement,Womens Cam Newton Jersey, opting not to kick a field goal, who then threw to a wide-open Foles for a walk-in touchdown and a 22-12 halftime lead.

      It marked the end of a wild opening half that included missed extra points, a missed field goal and a botched Patriots attempt at a trick play of their own when a wide-open Brady dropped an intended pass.

      'A LITTLE BIT SHORT'

      The Patriots looked poised to collect a record-tying sixth Super Bowl in 17 seasons when Brady threw his third touchdown - this one a short pass to Rob Gronkowski with about nine minutes to play - to give his team their first lead of the game, 33-32.

      But the Patriots had no answer for the Foles-led Eagles, who refused to lie down at the hands of a team that was looking to add to their remarkable dynasty.

      Patriots coach Bill Belichick took the blame for the loss while Gronkowski, who was playing in his first game since suffering a concussion two weeks ago, said he knew his team were going to be in for a battle.

      "You just knew that it was going to be a shootout the whole game and it was going to take all 60 minutes," said Gronkowski. "Unfortunately, we just didn't come up with the most opportunities to make to win the game."

      Brady finished the game with 505 passing yards and three touchdowns but could not deliver when it mattered most, his desperate pass falling to the ground in the end zone as time expired.

      The Patriots now enter an offseason some feel could mark the beginning of the end for their dynasty after ESPN reported in January about a rift between Brady, Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.

      The trio have denied reports of any off-field tension but there will be no shortage of attention paid to their every move between now and next season.

      The game, played under a translucent U.S. Bank Stadium roof while temperatures outside plummeted, capped a season during which NFL ratings dropped after many players kneeled during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and as the league's concussion protocol entered the spotlight.

      But no players protested while Grammy Award-winning pop singer Pink performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" ahead of the year's most-watched U.S. television broadcast, attracting an audience of more than 100 million people.

      NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders stemmed a crisis and steadied their Eastern Conference playoff positioning with a narrow win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

      The Islanders' reward? A date with one of the hottest teams in the NHL.

      The Islanders will look to win their second straight game Monday night when they host the red-hot Nashville Predators at Barclays Center.

      The Islanders stopped a two-game losing streak when they came back from two one-goal deficits to edge the visiting Blue Jackets 4-3.

      The host Predators won their second straight -- and for the eighth time in 10 games -- on Saturday with a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers.

      The Islanders (26-22-5) escaped a tie for last place in the Metropolitan Division with the Rangers and moved into a deadlock for the final wild-card spot in the East with the Philadelphia Flyers.

      the Islanders felt a little better than they did after being outscored 9-1 in losses to the Florida Panthers and Toronto Maple Leafs earlier in the week.,adidas P.K Subban jersey,Suffice to say

      "A huge win," Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak told reporters after he had 46 saves. "We just found a way to get the two points. That's really a huge booster for our team after those two losses.",adidas Max Pacioretty jersey, a huge two points

      meanwhile,authentic Andrew Shaw jersey,The Predators (31-12-7),authentic Max Pacioretty jersey, outscoring the Rangers and Los Angeles Kings 10-2., provided themselves a boost in the last two games

      "I thought for 120 minutes it was pretty good,authentic P.K Subban jersey," Predators coach Peter Laviolette told reporters after Saturday's game. "The guys were playing hard. We rolled the lines and rolled the D and had good goaltending.", pretty consistent

      The Predators' 8-1-1 record in their last 10 games is tied with the Boston Bruins for the best mark during that span.

      which has outscored the opposition 31-17 in that 10-game stretch,Nashville,adidas Carey Price jersey, two points behind the Winnipeg Jets.,adidas Andrew Shaw jersey,will enter Monday in second place in the Central Division

      Halak is likely to oppose the Predators' Pekka Rinne in a battle of top net-minders. Rinne posted the win Saturday with 20 saves against the Rangers.

      Halak is 14-3-4 in 22 regular-season appearances against the Predators. Rinne is 4-3-2 in nine games against the Islanders.

      Neither team is likely to be 100 percent Monday.

      MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) - Super Bowl Sunday turned out to be a bye week for on-field protests, with none of the players kneeling or raising a fist during the national anthem,Womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey, allowing the NFL's biggest day to unfold without the season's most polarizing issue at center stage.

      The absence of protests before the game pleased some fans,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey, who either saw the kneeling players as being disrespectful to the flag and the military,Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey, or were simply sick of the season-long rancor over the protests over racial injustice.

      "I'm glad they stood for the anthem. It's not appropriate,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jersey," said Kelly Erickson, an Eagles fan from Philadelphia who watched the singer Pink perform the Star Spangled banner without incident at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

      President Donald Trump, for one, has been a harsh critic of the pre-game gesture, heaping scorn on the protesting players and the league for allowing them to go unpunished.

      But demonstrators who gathered outside the stadium had hoped some players would carry on with protests that began in 2016 with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and were joined by dozens of players around the league this season.

      "All eyes are here," said Mel Reeves, a Minneapolis civil rights activist who organized a two-day "Take a Knee" conference that culminated in the rally. "When the players are doing it, people have to pay attention to the issue."

      The wave of protests started to fizzle late in the season when the National Football League said it would donate $89 million over seven years to social justice causes as part of an effort to end the on-field demonstrations.

      Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins,Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey, who has previously raised his fist above his head,Womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, was one of those who stopped his protests.

      Still,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, Trump stirred the issue anew last week during his State of the Union address. As the season was getting underway, he said any player who protests is a "son of a bitch" who should be removed from the field,Womens Leonard Fournette Jersey, and criticized NFL owners for failing to take action.

      which include the use of lethal force against minorities and racial disparities in the justice system.,NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has praised the protesters as concerned activists and said the league should work with them to address their concerns

      As the game started,Authentic Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, about 100 demonstrators gathered and knelt outside one of the downtown stadium's entrances, images on social media showed. Minneapolis police did not intervene,Womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey, a police spokesman said.

      " said activist Sandi Sherman in trying to explain why there were no protests along the sidelines.,"I think there is a lot of pressure at this stage not to do it

      One stop away on a commuter rail line, protesters wearing T-shirts reading "You can't play with black lives" blocked the tracks. Transit police detained 17 people who were cited for unlawful interference with transit and released, Metro Transit spokesman Howie Padilla said.

      It hasn't been all bad. On one hand, San Jose has won the five-on-five possession battle, according to Natural Stat Trick. , controlling 52.07 percent of the shot attempts and 52.21 percent of the unblocked shot attempts

      but not nearly a big enough drop to sound any alarms. ,adidas Zach Parise jersey, They've also only scored 0.06 fewer goals per 60 minutes of five-on-five play (2.05) compared to when Thornton was playing (2.11). That's still not all that productive

      On the other,adidas Jeff Carter jersey,and their once-smoldering power play has only converted on one of its last eight opportunities without Thornton. ,adidas Ryan Suter jersey, the Sharks are just 0-2-1 in those three games. They've been outscored 12-8 in regulation and overtime

      Plus,authentic Ryan Suter jersey, their defensive play,authentic Devan Dubnyk jersey, has remained largely subpar. San Jose has still allowed far too many high-danger chances (12.32 per 60 minutes of five-on-five play) over the last three games.,authentic Shea Weber jersey, which was already a major concern

      Goaltender Martin Jones bailed the defense out on Wednesday, but routinely relying on 40-plus saves isn't exactly, posting a save percentage (.977) above .920 for just the fifth time in his last 16 appearances. The Sharks can reasonably expect him to be better than he has since December

      a recipe for success.

      Three games sans Thornton are not nearly enough to draw any meaningful conclusions, but some are beginning to become apparent. San Jose wasn't scoring all that much with him, particularly on the power play. , and aren't scoring much without him

      There's undoubtedly a hole atop the roster, perhaps two with Marleau also gone. As long as the Sharks' poor defensive play continues to overshadow Thornton's injury, answering ‘what if' will have to wait., though

      Minnesota Vikings cornerback and pending free agent Terence Newman isn't ready to hang up his cleats just yet,Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, telling KFAN Minnesota on Thursday that he plans to take another shot at winning a Super Bowl.

      because we made it to an NFC Championship,Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey,"I want to play[next season]," Newman said. "We fell short. We fell way short ... I want to be able to have an opportunity to win a ring. It's that simple."

      The 15-year veteran will turn 40 on Sept. 4,Womens Golden Tate III Jersey, two days before the opening game of the 2018 regular season. Only Tom Brady (turned 40 in August) and James Harrison (will turn 40 in May) are older among the league's active non-special teamers.

      the only pure cornerback to ever play at 40 years or older is seven-time Pro Bowler and Hall of Famer Darrell Green,Womens Calais Campbell Jersey,According to Pro Football Reference, who was a full-time starter until age 39 and played three more seasons in a smaller role for the Washington Redskins.

      Newman has played in 31 games (16 starts) over the last two seasons,Authentic Calais Campbell Jersey, logging 752 defensive snaps (72.7 percent) in 2016 and 560 snaps (56.1 percent) in 2017. He has missed just 19 of a possible 240 games in his career.

      NASHVILLE,Womens Khalil Mack Jersey, Tenn. (AP) -- In her bid for governor of Tennessee, Republican Rep. Diane Black will run an ad during the Super Bowl pregame show saying ''it's too bad that the league doesn't respect the patriotism of our national anthem.''

      he said.,Black's campaign spokesman, Chris Hartline, said Thursday that the ad urging fans to stand will run on one network in several Tennessee markets at a cost of more than $50,000. Some will see it right before kickoff

      It's a response to the NFL's refusal to run an ad from the group American Veterans saying ''Please Stand'' in the printed Super Bowl program.

      but NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the game program is not the place for messages that could be seen as political. McCarthy noted that the NFL approved a Veterans of Foreign Wars ad saying ''We Stand for Veterans.'',The league has been roiled by debate over players kneeling during the anthem to protest social injustice

      In her spot, Black says that though the NFL refused the AMVETS ad urging everyone to stand, ''they can't stop you and me.''

      said in the ad.,''So tonight,Womens Leonard Williams Jersey, wherever you are watching this game,Authentic Bo Jackson Jersey, please stand for 'The Star-Spangled Banner' and join me in standing up for veterans,'' Black,Womens Derek Carr Jersey, a Gallatin lawmaker

      Minn. (AP) — The Tom Brady-Bill Belichick dynasty actually lacks something: a 100-yard rusher in the Super Bowl for the New England Patriots.,Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey,BLOOMINGTON

      Perhaps that's the best way to explain why it's been a decade since a title game winner reached a mark often reserved for Super Bowl MVPs. It also illustrates how the game has changed since Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith and Terrell Davis were carrying the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos to championships.

      Sunday's Super Bowl between the Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will be the 20th since the last time a running back was the MVP: Davis.

      "I think gone are probably the days of the one running back that carries the ball 35 times," Philadelphia defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. "People use running backs in a lot of different roles and they use running backs, but by specialty.", I don't want to say by committee

      who have combined for just three 100-yard rushing games all season.,That's a pretty good way to describe both these teams

      Jay Ajayi, the heralded midseason acquisition by the Eagles in a trade, who led the Patriots with just 31 yards last year when New England threw almost non-stop in the second half while rallying from 25 points down to beat Atlanta., doesn't have the one for Philadelphia. It belongs to LeGarrette Blount

      which incidentally included a 100-yard game for Chicago's Thomas Jones.,The most recent Super Bowl winner with a 100-yard rusher was Indianapolis with Dominic Rhodes in 2007

      when the Seahawks infamously threw an interception at the goal line instead of giving the ball to their bruising runner for the potential winning touchdown.,The last 100-yard rusher in the Super Bowl was Seattle's Marshawn Lynch against the Patriots three years ago

      "There was a period of time where the running back position was being — quote," said Ajayi, unquote — devalued in some way, with the Eagles., who had two 100-yard games for Miami before the trade and is averaging 59 yards in nine games, including the playoffs

      "As of recent, especially on our team,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey, if you look across the league, I take pride in showcasing how the position can be a game-changer in every game.",Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, the running game is essential," Ajayi said. "For me personally

      The Eagles finished third in rushing during the regular season and had a pair of 200-yard games. They have restored a three-back rotation despite the season-ending injury to Darren Sproles. Ajayi and Blount get help from third-down back Corey Clement.

      "I think the teams that have an opportunity to go to the postseason,Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said. "You have to stay patient and diligent there. That's something we've been able to do all season long. It's something we stay committed to.",Womens Drew Brees Jersey, they do have the ability to run the football

      Dion Lewis had both of New England's 100-yard games and averaged almost 5 yards per carry. He also had three receiving touchdowns to go with six rushing scores. James White and Rex Burkhead also had three receiving TDs apiece.

      " offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said.,"There's no position group that's going to touch the ball more than the running back except for the quarterback

      "Whether you hand it to them, screen it to them, throw it to them, they're going to have the ball in space because they're the best runners on your team. We've always believed in that.", spread them about,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, throw to them outside the backfield

      The closest thing to a 100-yard Super Bowl rusher for the Patriots under Brady and Belichick was in their first trip. Antowain Smith had 92 yards when New England beat St. Louis in 2002.

      a seventh-year pro. "I think as a running back,"Game's different than the way it was when I first got in the league," said Lewis, be able to do a lot of things so you can get the ball in your hands as much as possible.", you've just got to be more versatile

      Some of those things aren't necessarily new — swing passes to running backs, other glorified running plays that count as passes., screens to receivers

      even though it seems that way as a popular Super Bowl week topic with backup quarterback Nick Foles finishing Philadelphia's path to the title game after Carson Wentz's season-ending knee injury.,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey,And Schwartz says the run-pass options the Eagles use aren't really new either

      There have been other tricks through the years as well.

      "The Patriots used to do a little jet sweep where they'd tap the ball forward from the quarterback, almost like a volleyball tap, you don't get any extra points for running the ball across the goal line.",Womens Harrison Smith Jersey," Schwartz said. "That goes down as a pass. When it's all said and done

      he doesn't think much of it being so long since a Super Bowl winner had a 100-yard rusher.,While Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley agrees that it's a passing league

      "All I know is for the Eagles to win,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, "we've got to run the ball.",Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey," the former Philadelphia running back said
