LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Carson Wentz threw for 291 yards and four touchdowns before leaving with a knee injury and Jake Elliott kicked the go-ahead 33-yard field goal with 3:45 left for the Philadelphia Eagles,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, who beat the Los Angeles Rams 43-35 in a thriller Sunday to clinch the NFC East title���¯���¼�¯�¿�½Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey,.

Two sources familiar with the injury tell The Associated Press that doctors believe Wentz has torn his left anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season and playoffs.

Wentz needs an MRI to confirm the severity of the injury. Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information.

Wentz was hit hard as he scrambled into the end zone on a play that was called back because of holding. He stayed in the game and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery four plays later to give the Eagles the lead.

Foles replaced Wentz on the next drive for Philadelphia (11-2).

The NFC West-leading Rams (9-4) then went up 35-31 on Todd Gurley's second short TD run.

Elliott kicked a 41-yard field goal to pull the Eagles to 35-34. His go-ahead field goal was set up when Chris Long, had a strip-sack of Jared Goff,Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey, a second-round draft pick of the then-St. Louis Rams in 2008,Womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, with Rodney McLeod recovering.

Elliott kicked a 54-yarder,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey, but the Eagles got an automatic first down on a personal foul on Aaron Donald. Elliott kicked the winner four plays later.

The game ended on a crazy play,Womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey, when Philadelphia's Brandon Graham grabbed a lateral by Tavon Austin out of the air on the game's last play and scored what was ruled a 16-yard fumble return.

The Eagles clinched their first division title since 2013.

This was the eighth time in the Super Bowl era that quarterbacks taken No. 1 and No. 2 overall in the same draft squared off. Goff was the first pick overall in 2016,Authentic Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, followed by Wentz.

Goff threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Chris Hogan made his way to South Florida with the Patriots on Sunday. And not to watch.

but after four practices this week in Foxboro,Tom Brady and the Patriots offense have gone without Hogan since he injured his shoulder late in a Week 8 win over the Chargers. It's unclear how much he'll play, he's going to give it a go Monday night against the Dolphins.

we went into some detail on how Hogan could help the Patriots offense if he's able to go. With Rob Gronkowski suspended,Earlier in the week, Hogan could serve as a valuable red-zone target.

Hogan's return could also have an impact on the workload issued to his teammates. Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola's snap-counts have been relatively unchanged with Hogan out, but Phillip Dorsett has taken on the No. 2 receiver role in terms of play-count since Week 8. In four games since Hogan's injury,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey, Dorsett has averaged 42 snaps per game.

Here's a quick look at how the Patriots may be impacted by some of the injuries they're dealing with . . .

Marcus Cannon,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey, leaving the right-tackle duties to LaAdrian Waddle (more on him later) or Cam Fleming. Van Noy's absence could be a difficult one for the Patriots. He has handled the hybrid end-slash-linebacker duties once held by Dont'a Hightower,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, Kyle Van Noy,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, Trey Flowers ruled out: Cannon's ankle injury will hold him out yet another week, the Patriots become thinner at both the edge and the second-level. Players like Eric Lee (57 snaps against the Bills last weekend), and he's emerged as a leader of the New England front-seven. Without him, Elandon Roberts (49), David Harris (25) and Marquis Flowers (35) can all expect a busy day with Van Noy unavailable. Trey Flowers will miss his second consecutive game with a ribs injury. Special-teamer Brandon King (hamstring) has also been ruled out.

Issues on the edge: Injuries to Van Noy and Flowers aren't the only issues the Patriots have on the edge. Deatrich Wise (foot) came into the weekend listed as questionable. He only managed to get onto the field for one practice this week. The Patriots have been perilously thin at defensive end all season -- the Derek Rivers injury, Rob Ninkovich retirement and Kony Ealy release had something to do with that -- and are facing a situation where they may have to go deep into their bench just to man the position. If Wise is at all limited,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, Bill Belichick could be forced to turn to Lee and Geneo Grissom -- both of whom were practice-squad players just a few weeks ago. Rookie defensive tackle Adam Butler could also potentially bump outside; the Patriots worked him there throughout training camp.

Waddle improving,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey, however. While it's not certain he'll play,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey, still questionable: Waddle worked out prior to the Bills game but was deemed unable to go. His ankle injury has improved steadily since then,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, he'll have a better shot at getting back onto the field than he did a week ago. Waddle was injured in the fourth quarter of his team's win over the Dolphins in Week 12. Whoever is playing right tackle for the Patriots, whether it's Waddle or Fleming, will have his hands full. Dolphins pass-rusher Cameron Wake typically lines up on that side.

Something going around the running backs room: Mike Gillislee (illness) was ruled out on Sunday night. He missed Saturday's practice with an illness one day after Dion Lewis missed a practice due to illness. Lewis practiced on Saturday and is expected to be ready for Monday night. Gillislee has been a healthy game-day scratch since the Week 9 bye.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Mike Tomlin is ready to talk about the New England Patriots.

The fact the Pittsburgh Steelers coach can include cornerback Joe Haden in the discussion is a bonus.

Haden will attempt to practice for the AFC North champions this week,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, barely a month removed from a fractured left leg that appeared to put his season in jeopardy.

While Tomlin will wait to make a decision on whether Haden will be available on Sunday when the Steelers (11-2) host the Patriots (10-3), the fact it's even up for debate is promising.

The Steelers signed Haden on the eve of the regular season precisely for this situation. Tom Brady dominated Pittsburgh's secondary in the AFC championship game 11 months ago,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey, picking apart the Steelers' zone defense while throwing for 384 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-17 romp that wasn't even that close.

Tomlin and defensive coordinator Keith Butler made playing more man-to-man coverage a point of emphasis during the offseason and the Steelers had the second-ranked pass defense in the NFL before Haden left during the first half of a victory over the Colts on Nov. 11.

The results during Haden's absence have been uneven at best,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey, though it hasn't stopped Pittsburgh from taking an eight-game winning streak into perhaps the most highly anticipated game of the regular season.

The Steelers clinched their third division title in four years last Sunday night with a 39-38 victory over Baltimore,Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey, meaning Haden will be heading to the playoffs for the first time in his career.

''It was probably one of the most rewarding images I saw in the locker room Sunday night after the game: Joe Haden in his AFC North champion hat and T-shirt,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey,'' Tomlin said.

''He was excited about it and rightfully so. Hopefully we'll get him back into the land of competing so he can be back in the fold with us,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, but only if he's ready.''

A little bit of Haden could go a long way against Brady, who is 7-2 against the Steelers with 24 touchdowns and only three interceptions.

Getting pressure on him would help, and if Pittsburgh wants to blitz it needs to go man-to-man effectively.

The Steelers are second in the NFL with 41 sacks and their 13 picks are tied for seventh.

''I feel like we're in a better position to (play man-to-man), and we have practiced it more, over the course of a 12-month calendar, globally speaking,'' Tomlin said Tuesday. ''We'll see what it looks like.''

While Haden could return, the Steelers are still adjusting to life without linebacker Ryan Shazier. The 25-year-old Shazier injured his spine in the first quarter of a 23-20 victory over Cincinnati on Dec. 4 and remains in the hospital recovering from spine stabilization surgery.

The team has been tight-lipped about Shazier's long-term prognosis,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey, but placing him on injured reserve means he won't be back at any point this season,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey, if he returns at all.

Still,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey, Shazier remains very much a part of the team. Several players visited him in the hospital shortly after Chris Boswell's winning field goal against the Ravens.

Tomlin has stopped by too,Womens Joe Montana Jersey, with Shazier frequently steering the conversation toward the team's status and not his own.

''I go see him,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey, he wants to talk about the game plan,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey, what's transpiring in practice settings and so forth, how the guys are doing,'' Tomlin said.

The reality of how difficult it will be to move forward without Shazier came into stark focus against Baltimore. The Ravens rolled up 413 yards as Tomlin shuttled between Arthur Moats and Sean Spence at Shazier's inside linebacker spot, with uneven results at best.

''Shay's a special guy with a lot of talents, not only physically but mentally and from a leadership standpoint,'' Tomlin said. ''It's not a realistic discussion to talk about one guy replacing him.''

Either way, the Steelers must move on.

Tomlin understands the hype surrounding the meeting between two teams that have represented the AFC in the Super Bowl 10 times in the past 16 years. Rather than run from it, he's running towards it.

''I love it,'' Tomlin said. ''It's good to be in big games than be in ones nobody's watching. We better be appreciative of this spot and not resist it in any way. This is what we've been fighting for since March. Why would you fight that? It's an awesome thing.''

In every game he has played, rookie Mitch Trubisky has taken steps toward becoming a better quarterback, in the opinion of Chicago Bears coaches.

But in Sunday's 33-7 rout of the Bengals at Cincinnati, his ninth start, Trubisky took a giant leap forward.

"Production-wise, if you just look at yardage and all the things people look at statistically, "I think it was by far his best," Bears coach John Fox said,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey, and our best."

That it was the Bears' first victory in seven weeks was a huge factor.

"I don't know about specific areas,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey," Trubisky said, regarding his own improvement,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, "but all I'm worried about is winning and getting better each day. I think it all starts with leadership and coming into the building, working hard,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, making sure I'm preparing the right way. Walking around the building with a positive mindset, picking up the guys, making sure everyone's locked in at practice.

"And then doing my job."

Against the Bengals, Trubisky completed a personal-best 25 passes on 32 attempts. His 78.1 completion percentage was his second best of the season, as were his 271 passing yards. For the sixth time in nine starts, he did not throw an interception.

Trubisky's personal numbers and the team's victory are the culmination of months of hard work that often is obscured by a five-game losing streak. There are minor details that may not be noticeable even in victory -- things like communication in the huddle and at the line of scrimmage and, for Trubisky, proper technique.

"Doing my footwork (correctly), putting the ball in the right spot and doing the little things on a daily basis," he said. "That's what has allowed me to get better, and then it's carrying over to Sunday."

It adds up,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, especially on third downs.

The Bears have converted 43.8 percent of their third downs the past two weeks. That's better than the NFL average of 38.9, and a it's significant improvement over the previous three games,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, when the Bears converted just 27.8 percent.

"That's where the quarterbacks make their money," said Dowell Loggains, the Bears' offensive coordinator. "That's when they know they're throwing,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, and he's going to go back there and read coverages. It all starts with making protection checks. He did a really good job in the (Bengals) game; had a couple adjustments he made at the line of scrimmage that were really good.

"It's just a sign of growth,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, of understanding how all 11 people are affected by pressures and where your hot (reads) are. It's just another step that he's taking -- in a road game vs. a really good defense and a tough third-down package."

Execution on third down isn't the only area in which Trubisky has made strides. He did not complete 60 percent of his passes in any of his first four starts, but he has completed at least 60 percent in four of his last five games. He was sacked 16 times in his first five starts but just seven times in his last four.

"It's not just me,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey," Trubisky said. "We're getting better as a group and jelling together,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey, and the chemistry is building, and hopefully that allows us to get better each week.

The No. 1 priority is winning, so that's all I'm focused on."

For coaches on the outside looking in at the playoff picture, it's all about improvement, and they see that in Trubisky.

"He just keeps stacking up good games, better and better, (in) every start he's played in," Loggains said. "Mitchell, has gotten better. And I anticipate him to continue to do that."

NEW YORK — It took a little longer than expected, but the Washington Capitals are right where most forecasters predicted.

Unfortunately for the New York Islanders, the same can be said for them.

A pair of Metropolitan Division contenders will face off Monday night when the Islanders host the Capitals at Barclays Center.

The Capitals earned their season-high fourth consecutive win Friday when they beat the visiting New York Rangers 4-2. The Islanders lost for the third straight game Saturday when they fell to the host Boston Bruins 3-1.

The winning streak is the highlight of a six-week surge for the Capitals (18-11-1),Authentic Mike Condon jersey, who went 5-6-1 in October but are 13-5-0 since to move into second place in the Metropolitan Division, two points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets.

when it fell to the Colorado Avalanche,Washington, which earned the Presidents’ Trophy as the NHL’s best regular-season team each of the last two seasons, is 8-2-0 since Nov. 16,Authentic Craig Anderson jersey, 6-2.

Defenseman Matt Niskanen told the Washington Post the loss to the Avalanche — who finished last in the NHL last season with 70 fewer points than Washington — served as the turning point for the Capitals, who were once again expected to contend for the Stanley Cup this season.

“I think we got our butts chewed a little bit (after the game),” Niskanen said. “Hockey’s a lot more fun when you’re playing well, rightfully so, and guys stepped up, started playing better, playing hard for each other, like we are right now.”

The game hasn’t been as much fun lately for the Islanders (16-10-3),adidas Mike Condon jersey, who went 1-1-2 on a four-game road trip to fall into a tie for the two Eastern Conference wild-card spots with the Pittsburgh Penguins. New York and Pittsburgh are just one point ahead of the ninth-place Rangers.

The Islanders, who missed the playoffs by one point last season and were projected by most to be in the wild-card mix this season, haven’t helped themselves lately by allowing the opponent to score the game’s first goal in each of the past five games.

Perhaps a return home will help the Islanders get back on track. New York is 8-1-2 at Barclays,adidas Craig Anderson jersey, where it will play seven of the next eight games.

“Going to try to get the first goal one of these games,” Islanders coach Doug Weight said during the team’s postgame show Saturday night. “It’s going to be good to get home. I think we’ve had 18 or 19 on the road, so our numbers are good. Now we’ve got to get home and be homers for a while.”

With the Capitals having enjoyed two days off,adidas James Neal jersey, who have employed an almost even split of the goaltending duties between Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss, No. 1 goalie Braden Holtby likely will make his third consecutive start. The Islanders, had yet to announce a starter for Monday.

Holtby made 27 saves in the Friday win. He is 13-3-3 in 19 regular-season games against the Islanders.

Halak made his second straight start Saturday, who made his most recent start Tuesday, when he recorded 30 saves. He is 8-8-0 in 16 regular-season games against the Capitals. Greiss,Authentic James Neal jersey, is 2-1-1 in four regular-season appearances against Washington.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Mike Tomlin is ready to talk about the New England Patriots.

The fact the Pittsburgh Steelers coach can include cornerback Joe Haden in the discussion is a bonus.

Haden will attempt to practice for the AFC North champions this week, barely a month removed from a fractured left leg that appeared to put his season in jeopardy.

While Tomlin will wait to make a decision on whether Haden will be available on Sunday when the Steelers (11-2) host the Patriots (10-3),Womens Julio Jones Jersey, the fact it's even up for debate is promising.

The Steelers signed Haden on the eve of the regular season precisely for this situation. Tom Brady dominated Pittsburgh's secondary in the AFC championship game 11 months ago,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, picking apart the Steelers' zone defense while throwing for 384 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-17 romp that wasn't even that close.

Tomlin and defensive coordinator Keith Butler made playing more man-to-man coverage a point of emphasis during the offseason and the Steelers had the second-ranked pass defense in the NFL before Haden left during the first half of a victory over the Colts on Nov. 11.

The results during Haden's absence have been uneven at best,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, though it hasn't stopped Pittsburgh from taking an eight-game winning streak into perhaps the most highly anticipated game of the regular season.

The Steelers clinched their third division title in four years last Sunday night with a 39-38 victory over Baltimore,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, meaning Haden will be heading to the playoffs for the first time in his career.

''It was probably one of the most rewarding images I saw in the locker room Sunday night after the game: Joe Haden in his AFC North champion hat and T-shirt,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey,'' Tomlin said.

''He was excited about it and rightfully so. Hopefully we'll get him back into the land of competing so he can be back in the fold with us, but only if he's ready.''

A little bit of Haden could go a long way against Brady, who is 7-2 against the Steelers with 24 touchdowns and only three interceptions.

Getting pressure on him would help, and if Pittsburgh wants to blitz it needs to go man-to-man effectively.

The Steelers are second in the NFL with 41 sacks and their 13 picks are tied for seventh.

and we have practiced it more, globally speaking, over the course of a 12-month calendar,''I feel like we're in a better position to (play man-to-man),'' Tomlin said Tuesday. ''We'll see what it looks like.''

While Haden could return, the Steelers are still adjusting to life without linebacker Ryan Shazier. The 25-year-old Shazier injured his spine in the first quarter of a 23-20 victory over Cincinnati on Dec. 4 and remains in the hospital recovering from spine stabilization surgery.

but placing him on injured reserve means he won't be back at any point this season,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey,The team has been tight-lipped about Shazier's long-term prognosis,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey, if he returns at all.

Still,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, Shazier remains very much a part of the team. Several players visited him in the hospital shortly after Chris Boswell's winning field goal against the Ravens.

Tomlin has stopped by too,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, with Shazier frequently steering the conversation toward the team's status and not his own.

he wants to talk about the game plan,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, how the guys are doing, what's transpiring in practice settings and so forth,''I go see him,'' Tomlin said.

The reality of how difficult it will be to move forward without Shazier came into stark focus against Baltimore. The Ravens rolled up 413 yards as Tomlin shuttled between Arthur Moats and Sean Spence at Shazier's inside linebacker spot, with uneven results at best.

not only physically but mentally and from a leadership standpoint,''Shay's a special guy with a lot of talents,'' Tomlin said. ''It's not a realistic discussion to talk about one guy replacing him.''

Either way, the Steelers must move on.

Tomlin understands the hype surrounding the meeting between two teams that have represented the AFC in the Super Bowl 10 times in the past 16 years. Rather than run from it, he's running towards it.

''I love it,'' Tomlin said. ''It's good to be in big games than be in ones nobody's watching. We better be appreciative of this spot and not resist it in any way. This is what we've been fighting for since March. Why would you fight that? It's an awesome thing.''

In every game he has played, rookie Mitch Trubisky has taken steps toward becoming a better quarterback, in the opinion of Chicago Bears coaches.

But in Sunday's 33-7 rout of the Bengals at Cincinnati, his ninth start, Trubisky took a giant leap forward.

"Production-wise, if you just look at yardage and all the things people look at statistically, "I think it was by far his best," Bears coach John Fox said, and our best."

That it was the Bears' first victory in seven weeks was a huge factor.

"I don't know about specific areas, picking up the guys," Trubisky said, regarding his own improvement, "but all I'm worried about is winning and getting better each day. I think it all starts with leadership and coming into the building,Authentic Aaron Rodgers Jersey, making sure I'm preparing the right way. Walking around the building with a positive mindset, working hard,Authentic Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, making sure everyone's locked in at practice.

"And then doing my job."

Against the Bengals, Trubisky completed a personal-best 25 passes on 32 attempts. His 78.1 completion percentage was his second best of the season,Womens Andrew Luck Jersey, as were his 271 passing yards. For the sixth time in nine starts, he did not throw an interception.

Trubisky's personal numbers and the team's victory are the culmination of months of hard work that often is obscured by a five-game losing streak. There are minor details that may not be noticeable even in victory -- things like communication in the huddle and at the line of scrimmage and,Authentic Leonard Fournette Jersey, for Trubisky, proper technique.

"Doing my footwork (correctly), putting the ball in the right spot and doing the little things on a daily basis," he said. "That's what has allowed me to get better, and then it's carrying over to Sunday."

especially on third downs.,It adds up

The Bears have converted 43.8 percent of their third downs the past two weeks. That's better than the NFL average of 38.9, and a it's significant improvement over the previous three games, when the Bears converted just 27.8 percent.

"That's where the quarterbacks make their money," said Dowell Loggains, the Bears' offensive coordinator. "That's when they know they're throwing, and he's going to go back there and read coverages. It all starts with making protection checks. He did a really good job in the (Bengals) game; had a couple adjustments he made at the line of scrimmage that were really good.

of understanding how all 11 people are affected by pressures and where your hot (reads) are. It's just another step that he's taking -- in a road game vs. a really good defense and a tough third-down package.","It's just a sign of growth

but he has completed at least 60 percent in four of his last five games. He was sacked 16 times in his first five starts but just seven times in his last four.,Authentic T.Y. Hilton Jersey,Execution on third down isn't the only area in which Trubisky has made strides. He did not complete 60 percent of his passes in any of his first four starts

"It's not just me,Womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey," Trubisky said. "We're getting better as a group and jelling together, and the chemistry is building,Womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey, and hopefully that allows us to get better each week.

so that's all I'm focused on.",The No. 1 priority is winning

For coaches on the outside looking in at the playoff picture,Authentic Andrew Luck Jersey, it's all about improvement, and they see that in Trubisky.

"He just keeps stacking up good games,Womens T.Y. Hilton Jersey, better and better,Womens Leonard Fournette Jersey, (in) every start he's played in," Loggains said. "Mitchell, has gotten better. And I anticipate him to continue to do that."

Maybe this was just Ben Roethlisberger taking a page from coach Mike Tomlin and doing his "professional due diligence."

and he answered it. But in the process,The Steelers quarterback was asked a question after throwing an interception at the goal line to seal Sunday's loss to the Patriots,Womens Leonard Williams Jersey, he threw his offensive coordinator under the bus.

Roethlisberger was asked about the final play,Authentic Bo Jackson Jersey, when it looked like he was going to spike the football to stop the clock but instead threw into traffic to Eli Rogers. The pass was tipped by Eric Rowe and picked by Duron Harmon. The game was over,Authentic Howie Long Jersey,After the game,Authentic Khalil Mack Jersey, and the Patriots leaped into the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

What transpired immediately before the final snap was hectic, and Roethlisberger said that his inclination was to spike the football.

don't clock it.' ",Authentic Joe Namath Jersey," said Roethlisberger, according to NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala. "I was yelling 'clock it' because I felt that was the thing to do,Womens Bo Jackson Jersey,"It wasn't a fake spike, to clock it and get yourself one play. And it came from the sideline: 'Don't clock it

"From the sideline" in that instance means from Haley,Authentic Leonard Williams Jersey, who could communicate with Roethlisberger through the coach-to-quarterback communication system.

and at that time you just gotta try to make a play.",Womens Joe Namath Jersey, at that time I'm already -- everyone thinks it's clocked,Womens Howie Long Jersey," Roethlisberger said,Womens Khalil Mack Jersey,"Well,Authentic Derek Carr Jersey, "so you don't have time to try and get everyone lined up . . . Eli saw and he ran kind of a quick slant in there

The question is . . . Do you? Do you "gotta try to make a play" if the play is to throw into double or triple-coverage?

Had Roethlisberger thrown the football out of the back of the end zone when he saw the numbers in coverage weren't in his favor,Womens Derek Carr Jersey, the Steelers may have had the opportunity to kick a game-tying field goal.

Haley may have made the call, but it's a perfectly fine call if Roethlisberger makes a decision that doesn't hand the ball to the opponent. There's no throw-this-or-else mandate from the sidelines on any call. Certainly not for a quarterback of Roethlisberger's stature. And certainly not in that situation.

if it happens,Now both will have to live with the consequences of a play that will be dissected again and again and may only be forgotten if they can dispose of the Patriots in the playoffs -- a game that, would now occur in Foxboro if the seedings hold true.

You could look at the struggles of Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer two different ways. On one hand, chaotic offense like Cleveland runs. But on the other, not even Tom Brady himself could flourish in an erratic, talent-lacking, it�s tough to think of a quarterbacking position in the NFL with less pressure than the Browns. Nobody expects you to succeed, so anything you do reasonably well is a bonus.

Kizer is dancing on the edge of this blade, mostly failing. He�s thrown a league-leading 19 interceptions this year, and unfortunately for him, including a backbreaking six in the red zone. He�s also coughed up two fumbles inside the 20.

And now,Womens Pat Tillman Jersey, head coach Hue Jackson has opened the door to the possibility that the Browns might kick the tires on yet another quarterback.

�He has some work to do,Authentic Deion Jones Jersey,� Jackson said after Sunday�s 27-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. �I think that�s a fair question if he�ll ever get it. I think he will, but he has to keep working.�

And then came the line that every player dreads when talk turns to their job security: �We�ll see.�

�We�re not here just trying to get through the season,Womens Austin Hooper Jersey, we will. At the same time,Womens Vic Beasley Jr Jersey,� Jackson said. �I don�t look at it like that and I�m not going to let our players look at it like that. We�re trying to win. If the best decision is to move forward in a different direction, I want him to finish this if he can. We�ll see.�

If the Browns do decide to roll the dice on another quarterback,Authentic Vic Beasley Jr Jersey, Wyoming�s Josh Allen, 2018 would be a pretty much perfect draft for it. UCLA�s Josh Rosen,Authentic David Johnson Jersey, USC�s Sam Darnold, Oklahoma�s Baker Mayfield and Louisville�s Lamar Jackson are all pegged as first-round-caliber talent, and all would be available where the Browns are picking � which will almost surely be No. 1.

According to the Cleveland media,Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey,� Kizer said after the game. �When you play the performance that I had,Womens David Johnson Jersey, Kizer has agonized over each of the Browns� 14 losses,Authentic Austin Hooper Jersey, or worse. �He has not shared that with me, and wasn�t aware that Jackson was even considering benching him, I�m sure you have to go back and reevaluate the quarterback position. It�s just on me to make sure I do whatever I can to be the best me I can,Womens Deion Jones Jersey, the best teammate and the best leader and the best quarterback I can become.�

Kizer�s got the right attitude. It�s a question whether he�s got the right skills�he ranks last in most major statistical categories among quarterbacks�and an even bigger question is whether he�s got the right organization around him.

We are deep into the season of giving and the Flyers just keep giving fans exactly what they want: wins.

OK,adidas Gustav Nyquist jersey, sorry for that seasonal yet corny intro,Authentic Gustav Nyquist jersey, and it continued this past week with three more sound wins to push their winning streak past a handful to six games.,adidas Aleksander Barkov jersey, but the fact remains the Flyers are on a tear right now

This week got off to the right skate with a come-from-behind 4-2 victory Tuesday over the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs. The good vibes kept coming Thursday with a grind-it-out 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. And the week ended on the highest of notes Saturday night with a 2-1 OT win at home over the Dallas Stars.

Well, well,Authentic Aleksander Barkov jersey, aren't they?, well … they're back

And before the Flyers push for seven straight Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings,Authentic Pekka Rinne jersey, shall we?, let's look back at the successful week that was

? The Flyers' three wins this week were good, solid wins over the Leafs, Sabres, and Stars. When you're still trying to claw out of the hole a 10-game losing streak put you in, all three wins were mostly boring., all wins are good, solid wins right now. But these three Flyers wins this past week weren't of the most exciting variety. Let's be blunt

Tuesday's triumph over the Leafs was sleepy until Travis Konecny's tying seeing-eye shot in the third and then Claude Giroux's fantastic through-the-legs pass that led to Sean Couturier's wicked wrister of a winner. Thursday's win over Buffalo was a snoozer for the better part of 50 minutes. And Saturday's victory over Dallas, didn't have much action to it outside of Shayne Gostisbehere's heroics., while chippy

But the Flyers aren't caring about being exciting and neither should you right now because it's working for them. Jake Voracek's quote after the Buffalo game says it all.

"I thought this was a boring game," Voracek said. "Honestly, I don't think we played good today, but we got the win, which is positive.", which is really important. You're not going to play great every night. We played well when we needed to,Authentic Tomas Tatar jersey, but we can play a lot better

Yes, they can play better. But two points are two points right now,adidas Tomas Tatar jersey, boring is working.,adidas Jonathan Drouin jersey, no matter how boring. Simply put

? So why the sudden turnaround for the Flyers? There's a multitude of reasons - timely scoring,Authentic Jonathan Drouin jersey, just to name a few., better defensive efforts and Brian Elliott playing like a rock in net

But one major reason: discipline. In the three games this past week,adidas Pekka Rinne jersey, the Flyers took three penalties total, the Flyers have faced just nine power plays against. Compare that to the 22 power plays the Flyers have had in the same span., on in each game. Dating back to Dec. 4 when this six-game win streak began in Calgary

That's a gigantic boost for a team that, is still 29th in the league with a 76.7 percent success rate on the PK., as of Sunday morning

How do you cure something that ails you? Don't put yourself in the situation.

? When Gostisbehere is at his very best, booming shot and dynamic offensive ability. And that's just what we saw Saturday night against the Stars as Gostisbehere was a dangerous entity all over the ice and controlled the game when the puck was on his stick., he can just dominate a game with his elusiveness

He brought the Wells Fargo Center to life with his second-period power-play goal that saw him dive a lift a rebound past Dallas goalie Ben Bishop. And then he unglued the place with his game-winner in OT on the 4-on-3 man advantage.

"Ghost" is such a key piece for the Flyers as so much of the offense tends to be filtered through him when he's on the ice, and especially so on the power play. We saw what happened when he wasn't playing up to his abilities during the 10-game skid. But the Gostisbehere we saw against the Stars is just what the doctor ordered for the Flyers. And it shows just why.

? Good for Travis Sanheim getting the monkey off his back and potting the first goal of his NHL career during Thursday's victory over Buffalo.

During the first period, Sanheim took a feed from Dale Weise and deposited home a one-timer from the circle to knot the game at 1-1. Sure, Sanheim made no mistake as he went top shelf with it. And he got the puck and the Ric Flair robe after the game to boot., he got a little help from Buffalo goalie Robin Lehner, who lounged wildly at the shot. But still

It's just a slight taste of what the 21-year-old offensive-minded blueliner can do. In three junior seasons with the Calgary Hitmen of the WHL, Sanheim scored 35 goals. He potted 10 in 76 games with the Phantoms last season.

He can score, don't be surprised to see him light the lamp more often., and as he gets more and more comfortable at the NHL level

? Here's your obvious observation of the week: What a difference two weeks makes.

When the Flyers were shut out by the Bruins 15 days ago, morale was as low as it had been in a long time. Nothing was going right. No breaks went their way. No bounces even came close. The list of misfortunes could go on and on and on. On the morning of Dec. 3, fifth-fewest in the league. They were nine points behind the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference., the Flyers had just 22 points

Here we are two weeks and change (and six wins in a row) later and the Flyers have 35 points and are just four points behind the New York Islanders for the final wild-card spot in the East.

Hope you guys like roller coasters.

GREEN BAY,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, Wisconsin (AP) — This will be a strange couple of weeks in Titletown: The Green Bay Packers' streak of eight straight NFL postseason appearances is over.

And quarterback Aaron Rodgers is done for the year after he was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Rodgers threw for three touchdowns and tossed three interceptions in Sunday's 31-24 loss at Carolina in his return from a broken collarbone. Coach Mike McCarthy said there were no setbacks with Rodgers' injury, but it made sense to shut him down.

we felt this was clearly in Aaron Rodgers' best interest,"He took a number of hits. With all the factors involved," McCarthy said. "He's not happy about it. It's a hard day for him."

It's an unusual time for the team as a whole.

The Packers last missed the playoffs in 2008, which was Rodgers' first season as the starter. They're not used to playing games this late into December without postseason implications.

Atlanta's win over Tampa Bay on Monday night sealed Green Bay's fate in the NFC wild-card chase. Packers receiver Randall Cobb dozed off in front of the TV while watching the game and woke up on Tuesday morning to difficult news.

" Cobb said,"It's very disappointing. You never want to be in this situation, "but we are."

Hundley will take over again as the starter Saturday against Minnesota,The Packers managed to go 3-4 in games started by backup quarterback Brett Hundley to keep their playoff hopes alive while Rodgers was out. With Rodgers done,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey, and the Packers re-signed Joe Callahan to be his backup.

The last three games of the year figured to be tough with or without Rodgers. He was knocked out in Week 6 after landing on his right arm after a hard hit outside the pocket by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.

we don't really think about it too much,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey,"I mean you can't go out there trying to take someone out like that. Just play ball,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey," left guard Lane Taylor said when asked if the team was motivated by another opportunity to face Barr.

the Detroit Lions in Week 17,Womens Walter Payton Jersey,So the Packers are in the unusual position of possibly playing the spoiler role. Their final foe,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey, also remains in the chase for a wild-card spot.

especially on defense. The Packers haven't had consistent pass-rushing punch on the edge,An early end to a season for a team perennially considered a Super Bowl contender could spark more change in the offseason, a group led by outside linebacker Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.

Injuries have also have decimated the Packers at cornerback, which was already a question mark. They were without starters Kevin King and Davon House last week against Carolina due to shoulder injuries.

and what we're capable of,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey,"You know we had ups and downs. We didn't play as good as we should have," Perry said. "We didn't get the job done this year. I'm pretty sad about it. The only thing we can do now is just look forward and just move in the right direction."

They'll have to do it without Rodgers over the final two weeks. When asked,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, McCarthy said there was no second-guessing about playing Rodgers last week.

" McCarthy said. "That's a bad hit on a good day,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, when you're completely healthy,"I think we all cringed when he took that first hit and frankly when he took the one from behind on the full fake,Womens Cam Newton Jersey, not coming off what he went through to get back for that game."

Md. (AP) -- Though he's pretty adept at flinging the football,OWINGS MILLS,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, Sam Koch is far more valuable to the Baltimore Ravens when using his right foot.

including 16 inside the 10. He received a game ball last Sunday - a rarity for a punter - after he pinned Cleveland inside the 20 on four of his five kicks,Koch leads the NFL with 37 punts inside the 20 yard-line,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey, three of which were downed within 5 yards of the goal line.

Through years of experimentation and practice, Koch has found a way to seemingly defy the laws of physics by making a football pop straight up after making contact with the ground.

because it rarely takes off into the end zone. That is the measuring stick.'',''Sam is probably more precise than any punter I have seen - not just been around,'' coach John Harbaugh said. ''They say the ball takes funny bounces for a reason: It is oblong. Sam Koch seems like he has perfected that oblong somehow, but seen, some way

only three have resulted in touchbacks. Depending on the distance and weather conditions,Of Koch's 74 punts this season, Koch will either put up a pooch-kick or slice one out of bounds in the shadow of the goal line.

and he can hit narrow.'',''He's got excellent ball control, he can hit it left,'' special teams coach Jerry Rosburg said. ''He can hit it right, he can get it wide

It's not by accident. Koch has 13 different kinds of punts, come Sunday, each of which he works on repeatedly during the week. Then,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey, he selects one or another from his expansive repertoire.

''A lot of it is wind-related and depends on the returner,'' he said.

OK,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey, but how the heck does Koch send a football 50 yards downfield with backspin on it?

''Exactly how he does it? I have no idea,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, but he probably won't tell you. I can't tell you,'' Harbaugh said. ''They have their techniques they work on. He would be the right guy to ask, so I guess people aren't going to know. But it is amazing.''

Koch insists there's no secret to his success.

so you're hoping it goes backward.'',''It's a 50-50 shot. The ball's going end over end,'' Koch said. ''Now, and it can either go forward or backward, the ball's spinning backward

more often than not. Koch is the holder for placekicker Justin Tucker,It does indeed, who had all sorts of good things to say about his teammate Tuesday after Baltimore (8-6) finished practice in preparation for Saturday's game against Indianapolis (3-11).

''What makes Sam so good? It's a combination of a lot of things that he does incredibly well, it would be his attention to detail. And anybody in this locker room will tell you,'' Tucker said. ''If I had to point to one thing,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, Sam is one of the best athletes on this team.''

the 35-year-old Koch has never missed a game. His run of 190 straight is a team record,Since joining the NFL in 2006, as is his 45.2-yard career gross average and 39.6 net.

He has punted 936 times in the regular season (with only 72 touchbacks) and had only three kicks blocked.

And that's not all.

Everyone once in a while,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey, the Ravens ask Koch to throw the ball out of punt formation on a fake. His career passing numbers: 4 for 4 for 48 yards and a solid 116.7 quarterback rating.

averaged 51.3 yards on six kicks and tossed a fourth-down,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey,Koch put all his talents on display during a Monday night game against Houston on Nov. 27. He placed five punts inside the 20, 22-yard pass to Chris Moore to set up a touchdown.

''We go out there and execute the way we practice it,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey,'' Koch said of the successful fake punts. ''I wouldn't expect it to be any other way.''

The Pittsburgh Penguins just got a little bigger on their backend.

The Penguins announced they struck a deal with the Dallas Stars on Tuesday afternoon, acquiring 6-foo-7 defenseman Jamie Oleksiak for a conditional fourth-round pick in 2019.

The trade comes on the heels of the Penguins making an odd move earlier in the day after acquiring goaltender Michael Leighton and a fourth-round draft pick in 2019 from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Josh Archibald, goaltender Sean McGuire and a sixth-round draft pick in 2019.

Oleksiak, hasn’t played since Dec. 9. It will be interesting to see where he fits in,adidas Jordan Eberle jersey, who has just three points in 21 games this season,adidas Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, if he does at all immediately.

One report suggests the Penguins had been interested in Oleksiak’s services for a while,Authentic Connor McDavid jersey, and that the deal came together pretty quickly.

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford suggested that a ‘major trade’ could happen if the Penguins continue to struggle.

Pittsburgh dropped a 4-2 decision to the Colorado Avalanche on Monday and sit outside the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference.

“We’re coming into a critical period where we’ll make a decision whether we need to shake things up or not,adidas Vincent Trocheck jersey, that’s the way it goes here in the next little while. If it doesn’t,” Rutherford told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last Wednesday. “We’re good enough to be better than we’re doing. Hopefully,Authentic Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to think that a major trade would come out of this.”

The Penguins have two fourth-round picks in 2019 at the moment and the Stars will get whichever one is higher, according to Shapiro.

Meanwhile, Leighton was sent down to Wilkes-Barrie/Scranton of the American Hockey League. Matt Murray is back to full health with the Penguins and Tristan Jarry has been phenomenal as a backup (and starter) when called upon.

It’s been an interesting season for Leighton, who will join his third NHL team after previously being with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Leighton is on a two-way deal with $650,Authentic Jordan Eberle jersey,000 at the NHL level and is an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.

Leighton has played in just seven NHL games over the past seven seasons and unless the Penguins want to give Jarry more playing time in the AHL,adidas Connor McDavid jersey, it seems unfathomable that he’d become the backup going forward.

Archibald,Authentic Aaron Ekblad jersey, meanwhile, will stay up with the Coyotes after the club announced that Dylan Strome was being sent back to the AHL following the trade. McGuire has been assigned to the Coyotes ECHL affiliate.

Also,Authentic Vincent Trocheck jersey, in case you’re wondering about the NHL’s roster freeze and what it all means,adidas Aaron Ekblad jersey, CapFriendly sent out a helpful tweet to explain.

The Packers last missed the playoffs in 2008,Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey, which was Rodgers' first season as the starter. They're not used to playing games this late into December without postseason implications.

Atlanta's win over Tampa Bay on Monday night sealed Green Bay's fate in the NFC wild-card chase. Packers receiver Randall Cobb dozed off in front of the TV while watching the game and woke up on Tuesday morning to difficult news.

" Cobb said,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey,"It's very disappointing. You never want to be in this situation, "but we are."

Hundley will take over again as the starter Saturday against Minnesota,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey,The Packers managed to go 3-4 in games started by backup quarterback Brett Hundley to keep their playoff hopes alive while Rodgers was out. With Rodgers done, and the Packers re-signed Joe Callahan to be his backup.

The last three games of the year figured to be tough with or without Rodgers. He was knocked out in Week 6 after landing on his right arm after a hard hit outside the pocket by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.

we don't really think about it too much,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey,"I mean you can't go out there trying to take someone out like that. Just play ball,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey," left guard Lane Taylor said when asked if the team was motivated by another opportunity to face Barr.

the Detroit Lions in Week 17,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey,So the Packers are in the unusual position of possibly playing the spoiler role. Their final foe,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey, also remains in the chase for a wild-card spot.

especially on defense. The Packers haven't had consistent pass-rushing punch on the edge,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey,An early end to a season for a team perennially considered a Super Bowl contender could spark more change in the offseason,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, a group led by outside linebacker Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.

Injuries have also have decimated the Packers at cornerback, which was already a question mark. They were without starters Kevin King and Davon House last week against Carolina due to shoulder injuries.

and what we're capable of,"You know we had ups and downs. We didn't play as good as we should have," Perry said. "We didn't get the job done this year. I'm pretty sad about it. The only thing we can do now is just look forward and just move in the right direction."

They'll have to do it without Rodgers over the final two weeks. When asked, McCarthy said there was no second-guessing about playing Rodgers last week.

"I think we all cringed when he took that first hit and frankly when he took the one from behind on the full fake, when you're completely healthy," McCarthy said. "That's a bad hit on a good day, not coming off what he went through to get back for that game."

NASHVILLE,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee linebacker Brian Orakpo has made it very clear to the rest of the Titans that their postseason already is underway.

Yes, two weeks early.

''That's the mindset we have to have going into this game, as well, trying to win that division, and I believe the Rams are going to have the same mindset,'' Orakpo said. ''It's going to be a great game.''

The Los Angeles Rams (10-4) need a win or a Seattle loss Sunday to clinch their first NFC West title since 2003 and cap their amazing turnaround under coach Sean McVay in his first season. The Rams are coming off a 42-7 thumping of the Seahawks in Seattle for their third win in four games.

try to come away with our 11th win,''We don't shy away from the opportunity to go in a tough atmosphere,'' McVay said. ''And we know that if we're able to accomplish that - that means a division championship as well. So it's a great opportunity.''

the last one being 25-23 to San Francisco,The Titans (8-6) are home after back-to-back losses, cost them the AFC South lead.

a win and losses by Buffalo and Baltimore would clinch the franchise's first playoff berth since 2008 before hosting division rival Jacksonville in the regular-season finale. The Titans are at home,Still, where they have won nine of their past 10.

'' Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota said. ''When it comes down to it,''Guys understand the situation, we obviously didn't accomplish what we wanted to do on our road trip. That's in the past, we messed up. We didn't play well,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, you can't fix it. All you can do is look forward to the next one, you can't change it,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, and kind of right the ship and get it going.''

Here are some things to know about the Rams and Titans:

HEY YOU: The No. 1 pick in 2016 that the Rams used to select quarterback Jared Goff came in a trade with the Titans two weeks before the draft.

Goff finally gets to face the team that didn't need a quarterback because the Titans already have Mariota,Now,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, the No. 2 pick overall in 2015.

throwing for 1,Goff has been so very good on the road this season,547 yards with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions with a 108.1 passer rating. He has been sacked only nine times away from home.

Goff said he hadn't thought of his Tennessee connection until asked. His take: ''Awesome.''

817 yards from scrimmage. He's also coming off a game in which he scored four touchdowns. The Titans rank third against the run in the NFL,SLOW DOWN GURLEY: Pro Bowl running back Todd Gurley leads the NFL with 17 total touchdowns and ranks second with 1, allowing only 87.2 yards rushing per game.

WATCH OUT: This game features two of the NFL's top-five defenses at sacking quarterbacks. The Rams, rank second with 47 sacks, with four having at least five apiece. The Titans now rank fifth with 40 sacks, led by Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald, thanks to piling up 26 in the past five games.

and he's one of four Titans with at least five sacks each. Jacksonville,Linebacker Derrick Morgan has a team-high 7+ sacks despite missing the past two games with an injured knee,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are the only other teams in the league featuring four players with at least five sacks.

ROOKIE RECEIVERS: The Titans took the first receiver in this year's draft, selecting Corey Davis from Western Michigan at No. 5 overall. The Rams selected Cooper Kupp in the third round out of Eastern Washington.

Los Angeles got the much better deal - at least based on the early results. Davis missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury that also cost him five of the first seven games this season. Davis still is looking for his first NFL touchdown after fumbling at the goal-line in November.

but he leads the Rams with 58 catches and 804 yards receiving. He also leads all rookies in yards receiving,Kupp has started only five games,Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey, and no rookie receiver has as many catches.

but not their Pro Bowler and the NFL's leading scorer in Greg Zuerlein ,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey,NEW KICKER: The Rams will have a healthy kicker,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday before surgery to repair a herniated disc.

The Rams signed Sam Ficken, after working out kickers. Ficken has been in camp with the Jaguars and Chiefs,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey, an undrafted free agent from Penn State,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, but his first field goal attempt Sunday will be his first in the regular season.

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Replacing Antonio Brown won't be a one-man job for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The team's top wide receiver is out indefinitely with a left calf injury sustained against the New England Patriots.

That means it's up to Martavis Bryant, rookie JuJu Smith-Schuster and others to fill a significant void left by the star wide receiver when the Steelers visit the Houston Texans on Monday.

''(Brown) is always tough because he never misses practice and he never misses games,'' Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley said Thursday. ''You don't necessarily think about that scenario a whole bunch.''

Brown enjoyed a MVP-caliber season until his injury.

Brown, who became the first player in NFL history with five straight 100-catch seasons,Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey, led the league in receptions,Authentic Sam Bradford Jersey, yards receiving and was tied for touchdown catches entering the game against New England.

Brown,Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey, at 1,Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey,533 yards, has more receiving yards than four other teams - Baltimore,Authentic Drew Brees Jersey, Cleveland, Chicago and Buffalo. Coach Mike Tomlin didn't put a timetable on a possible return.

''I'll be honest, (Brown), you can't replace him with one man,'' Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. ''(Brown) is not human, so we'll have multiple guys trying to fill that spot.''

Brown left the game against New England early in the second quarter after he became awkwardly tangled in double coverage and fell to the ground while trying to catch a pass in the end zone.

The Patriots benefitted and gained the inside track on home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with their win against the Steelers, though it took a late overturned touchdown and last-second end zone interception to seal the game.

''In a situation like playing against the Patriots, I think if (Brown's) playing, it would've been a different scenario,'' Smith-Schuster said.

But that's not the case. And as a result, the Steelers will need at least one win - maybe two - in their final two games to secure a first-round bye.

''It takes everybody stepping up,'' Haley said. ''As far as filling the spot, it isn't a big deal. It's just making sure guys are doing what they're supposed to do and making plays when they get the opportunity.''

Brown last missed a regular-season game because of an injury in 2012. He sat out the team's AFC playoff game at Denver during the 2015 season with a concussion.

In that game,Womens Harrison Smith Jersey, Bryant had nine catches for 154 yards,Womens Sam Bradford Jersey, while also breaking off a 40-yard run. Darrius Heyward-Bey also caught two passes for 64 yards.

''We understand that we don't have the best player in the league,Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey, but we understand that we're good receivers too,Womens Brandin Cooks Jersey,'' Heyward-Bey said.

They filled the void last week against the Patriots.

Smith-Schuster,Womens Drew Brees Jersey, who caught six passes for 114 yards, had a 69-yard catch-and-run in the final minute that set up the final sequence against New England. Bryant also made a one-handed touchdown catch on third-and-goal to give Pittsburgh a seven-point halftime lead.

With Brown sidelined, they will be asked to produce again for the Steelers on Monday against the Texans.

''He's very important,'' Bryant said of Brown. ''He's the best receiver in the league. We always want to have him on the field. It makes things a whole lot easier for everyone. But he's going to get healthy, we'll get him back in a couple weeks and we'll be ready to go.''

NOTES: Steelers CB Joe Haden, who has missed the past five games with a broken fibula, was a full participant at Thursday's practice. Linebacker Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) was also a full participant on Thursday. Matakevich missed the game against Baltimore, and was used only on special teams against New England. TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) also practiced, while G Ramon Foster missed with a concussion.

NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders solved their biggest long-term issue Wednesday, when owners Jon Ledecky and Scott Malkin won a bid to build a new arena at Belmont Park in Nassau County. But the Islanders will have decidedly short-term goals in mind Thursday night when they host the Anaheim Ducks in a battle of reeling teams at Barclays Center.

Both the Islanders and Ducks were off Wednesday after absorbing losses on Tuesday. New York fell to the visiting Detroit Red Wings, 6-3. Anaheim suffered its third straight defeat by dropping a 4-1 decision to the New York Rangers.

The results Tuesday removed the last margin of error for the Islanders (18-13-3) in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

The issue for the Islanders has been a sieve-like defense. New York entered Wednesday ranks second in the NHL in both goals scored (121) and goals allowed (120). Goalies Thomas Greiss and Jaroslav Halak have combined to stop just 87.1 percent of shots they've faced this month.

"They're going through a rough time now,Authentic Jonathan Drouin jersey," Islanders head coach Doug Weight said. "It gets in your head and you feel like you can't give anything up."

The game Thursday will be the first for the Islanders as official lame ducks at Barclays Center. The club, which is in its third season in Brooklyn following 42 seasons at Nassau Coliseum on Long Island, tired of the treacherous commute to Brooklyn, plans to move back to the Island in an arena that could be ready for the 2020-21 season. Fans, universally lauded the move.

"For our fans,Authentic Tomas Tatar jersey," Ledecky said during a press conference Wednesday. "You've been passionate supporters of the team both on and off the ice. Today is a huge day for the franchise and you deserve it more than anyone else.",Authentic Aleksander Barkov jersey, this day is for you

The Ducks (14-13-8) are also in the midst of a 10-game slide (3-3-4). Anaheim is 1-2-1 on a six-game east coast road trip that ends Saturday against the Penguins.

The loss to the Rangers on Tuesday was the first one this month in which the Ducks fell by more than two goals. Anaheim, has suffered four of its last seven losses in overtime.,Authentic Gustav Nyquist jersey, which is two points behind the third-place San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division

"I hate to say it,adidas Jonathan Drouin jersey," Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf said. "You have to find ways to win games.",adidas Pekka Rinne jersey, but I think we are finding ways to lose hockey games at the moment

While the Ducks' defensive woes are not as pronounced as the Islanders,Authentic Pekka Rinne jersey, Anaheim has been outscored 9-4 in the last two games.

"We have to dig in, buckle down defensively and win one of these games 1-0, something like that," Getzlaf said. "We have to give our goaltenders more help than that."
