Jaguars, Saints progress in National Football League playoffs

NFL playoffs: Titans-Chiefs, Falcons-Rams kick off wild-card weekend

We know this much: the New Orleans Saints are moving on.

Still, running back Jerick McKinnon sees one advantage with Vikings fans wanting revenge. It would be more believable if we didn't have a couple of incidents from this season to go on.

With Thomas and the 2017 addition of rookie sensation Alvin Kamara, the Saints have the best set of playmakers around quarterback Drew Brees in quite some time.

(On Sean Payton's decision to go for it on fourth and two late in fourth quarter) "He said, 'do you want to go for it or punt?' I said, 'do you have a play you like?' and he said 'Yeah.' So, I said, 'let's go for it.' End of discussion".

Interim general manager Marty Hurney insists the Carolina Panthers handled the medical treatment of quarterback Cam Newton "the right way" during Sunday's 31-26 playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. This led Newton to say he would send Jordan "some sauce" if he gave him his address. "I think we've shown offensively that we have a lot of ways to be effective, a lot of weapons to spread the ball around".

"I just have to be better", he added.

"If a team is going to do that, then I feel like with the matchups we have outside that there should be opportunities, ' Brees said". He played a key role in his team's victory, sacking Newton and forcing the game-deciding intentional grounding call.

Once again Brees became the straw the stirs the drink in New Orleans, making throw after throw in huge spots, finishing 23-33 for 376 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' 31-26 win over the Panthers.

Kelce led the Chiefs this season in receptions with 83, had a team-high eight touchdown catches and was second on the team in receiving yards. Instead, his right eye was the problem, the former Auburn star said. Your Saints are in the playoffs and they look scary good!

Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM) Analysts See $0.99 EPS
Moreover, Barrett Asset Management Ltd Company has 3.32% invested in Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM ) for 557,066 shares. Seabridge Inv Ltd Liability Corporation reported 0.1% of its portfolio in Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM ).

His teammates will tell you that Newton was among the chief reasons the Panthers had a chance Sunday - wide receiver Devin Funchess called it "an A-plus effort" - though they along with Newton won't soon forget chances that passed them by early and late.

But go back almost two years, and Thomas did not have the kind of NFL Draft buzz you might expect for a player who has been so productive.

The Saints are celebrating today after defeating the Carolina Panthers last night for the third time this season, securing their spot in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game. Graham Gano's 29-yarder cut the Saints lead to 21-12.

Not only did Jordan commit to the troll, but he did so in a timely manner, because sometimes pettiness can't wait. Jordan said. "Look, he like spun". Case in point was a Week 4 victory in New England, when he threw for 316 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 44 yards and a score.

The Panthers have held the Saints' rushing attack in check in the first half (seven carries, 14 yards), something that really plagued Carolina in both regular-season meetings with the Saints.

Newton absorbed a hard hit by Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata on a sack.

Medical personnel attended to him as he sat on the field, then took him to the medical tent on the sideline for evaluation.

A possible concussion to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton during a playoff game on Sunday as put the National Football League's injury protocol back in the spotlight.
