Just days after the Eagles signed Ndamukong Suh and Linval Joseph, the two newcomers played important snaps in the Eagles’ 17-16 win over the Colts.

Joseph played 26 snaps (40%) and Suh played 17 (26%), which is pretty impressive, especially considering the two 13-year-old veterans hadn’t been on a team all season. .

So how did the Eagles prepare them in such a short time?

Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon explained it Tuesday morning, giving credit first to defensive line coach Tracy Rocker, who put in the extra time to catch the guys.

But then Gannon had another more discreet reason.

“I think the other piece of that puzzle that allowed them to come in and play is the versatility and flexibility of the other three,” Gannon explained. “I’m talking about Fletch (Cox) and (Javon) Hargrave and Milton (Williams).

“We kind of left Suh and LJ in two places on some fronts, and these guys plugged in and played around, which helped them not have to know everything. So it was huge by these guys. Again, these guys who are in place, they’re smart and they’re versatile, they can play in different places.

“I think it’s getting by the wayside, but it’s a huge element for these guys who can play so fast coming here.”

Eventually Joseph and Suh will learn more positions, Suh in particular. And we could see the rotation going through an evolution. But it’s a good thing to note that the Eagles were able to plug and play these guys in their first few games because of the talent and versatility already at the position.

And it should be noted that the rest of the interior D line played extremely well in this game. Cox had his best game in weeks and Williams had his most productive game of the season. Hargrave continued to find success.

Williams had a sack, 4 tackles, 2 TFLs and a quarterback. He said after the match that the additions of Suh and Joseph only helped him.

“Of course,” Williams said Sunday after the game. “Because you want to play at the level they’ve played in their careers, including Fletch and Hargrave. It just motivates me to raise my game and do what I’m supposed to do.

Along with Rocker’s work and the versatility of the Eagles’ starting defensive tackles, Suh and Joseph obviously deserve a ton of credit for being ready in days. While playing defensive tackle wasn’t the most difficult transition to a new defense for experienced players, they still had to learn a lot of new terminologies and make sure their bodies were ready for a game after being out for as long as they were.

And now that they’ve finished their first match, it’s probably fair to assume Suh and Joseph will see their workload increase. This seems especially true for Suh.

It will be up to Gannon and Rocker to determine the upcoming rotation. And eventually, they’ll add Jordan Davis to that mix.

“I think with these two guys coming here, that’s what they wanted to do,” Gannon said, “… Tat’s football persona. It’s like you need us to help our team to win, that’s what we’ll do.

“Their roles will change like everyone else every week, depending on the game plan, who’s up, who’s not, all that stuff, and they’ll come in and they’ll be ready to go. I think both want to play a little more. It’s always good to have as many guys as we can get and the fresher and chasing the better off we are.

The Vikings have way too much talent on offense, both on the field and in the coaching staff, to continue to struggle as they have. It’s only a matter of time before this offense puts on a full performance and establishes itself as an offensive juggernaut, so why not put it all together against an elite team like Buffalo? It’s also a Buffalo defense that’s pretty overrated, as they wiped out a few struggling offenses to really improve their stats.

Another point in Minnesota’s favor is that Buffalo’s defensive line is definitely not the most talented D-Line the Vikings will face this season, especially with injured Gregory Rousseau meaning Buffalo won’t be able to take advantage of Minnesota’s greatest offensive weakness. terrible passage blocking inside. Without Tre’Davious White, the Bills’ CBs are also a possible weakness, which isn’t good for any team set to face Kirk Cousins ​​and Justin Jefferson.

Janik: Dalvin cooking

Vikings 2022 Offense By The Numbers: After Week 9
November 6, 2022; Landover, Maryland, USA; Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook. Mandatory Credit: Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports.

Dalvin Cook has rushed for 200 yards in each of the past two seasons. On Sunday, he will reach that milestone for the first time in 2022. Cook has only passed 100 yards this season, in Week 8 against the Cardinals. However, the Bills play almost exclusively with two high safeties and focus on pass defense. Therefore, Cook will have plenty of opportunities to lead the game.

Just last week, the Bills allowed the Jets, with their suspect offensive line, to crush them in a game that resulted in the Bills’ second loss of the season. The Jets didn’t even have Breece Hall in their roster because the star running back had torn his anterior cruciate ligament the previous week. Michael Carter took care of urgent tasks. The Vikings offensive line can open holes against a four-man defensive front, but struggle against teams with five players on the line of scrimmage, and the Bills typically use four.

Vikings X Factor

Jonathan: inside offensive line

I have no concerns for Christian Darrisaw. I have no concerns for Brian O’Neill. On game day, both Minnesota tackles will show up and show off, as they have every game this season. When you watch the players dressed in Between these two solid tackles, worries arise.

Ezra Cleveland is coming off his worst game of the season and Ingram has struggled in three straight games. If the Vikings offense is to reach its true potential, these two plus Bradbury need to pull it all together and allow this offensive line to finally have a dominant tackle-to-tackle performance.

Josh Allen is one of the NFL’s best passers, but teams also fear his ability to pull off. He’s already rushed for 392 yards and 4 scores in 2022. plus rushing for 40 yards in six games. His running ability is especially dangerous on third downs when the defense is expecting a pass, and he takes off and runs for the first down.

Jordan Hicks and Eric Kendricks must account for his runs and stop him before he sets the Vikings defense on fire. Edge rushers need to put the edge on and keep it from rushing outside. Tackle is also a big factor as Allen is tough to take down with his huge body. It looks and runs like a tight end.

Bills Player to Watch

Jonathan: Stefon Diggs

WR battle looms for Vikings

Here’s a name Vikings fans know very well: superstar receiver Stefon Diggs. Suffice it to say, the Minnesota secondary is going to have their hands full to cover Diggs on Sunday, regardless of who ends up playing QB for the Buffalo Bills.

Diggs has probably been circling this game for a few years now, and he’ll be excited to play against the team that drafted him and the team he gave memorable moments like the famous Minnesota Miracle. Win or lose, it’ll be fun to watch Diggs on Sunday, on and off the court, because no matter what, he’s going to show some emotion.

Janik: Von Miller

The edge rusher has been one of the most dominant forces in the NFL over the past decade. He’s seen it all in the league, as he’s a two-time Super Bowl champion, including a Super Bowl MVP, seven-time All-Pro, eight-time Pro Bowler and a former Defensive Player of the Year. He will play up-and-coming Vikings superstar Christian Darrisaw.

The sophomore is playing as an All-Pro contender and will face tough competition. Miller has already recorded seven sacks in 2022 after signing a whopping six-year, $120 million deal with the Bills in the offseason.

Final score prediction

Jonathan: Vikings 31 – Bills 24

The fun-loving Vikings face a big test against Bills - with or without Josh Allen

Obviously, this game greatly depends on who is actually playing QB this Sunday. Still, I think Minnesota has a great chance against a very battered Buffalo Bills team that has struggled in recent weeks, even with Allen. Minnesota will finally put together a full offensive performance against one of the best defenses they will play this season. He’ll come out of Buffalo with a victory that will set talking heads ablaze, giving Minnesota a pristine 8-1 record heading into a tough game in Dallas.

Janik: Vikings 27 – Bills 30

The Bills are battered, but the team is still outstanding. Minnesota will lose a game at some point, and the Bills are a formidable opponent. After six straight one-possession wins, the Vikings finally face an opponent who can take advantage of obvious passing situations late in the game. However, the Vikings are also a tough opponent and not a blowout opponent for the Bills. If Case Keenum actually starts against his old team, the Vikings would win a close game.

Since the pandemic, a record number of Philadelphia-based employees have transformed their remote roles into entrepreneurship, prompting the Philadelphia chapter of SCORE, a nonprofit partner of the US Small Business Administration and the city’s Department of Commerce. of Philadelphia, to seek more volunteers to handle the 100% growth in mentoring requests received over the past two years.

Philadelphia SCORE Chapter Co-Chair Jack Musgrove said the chapter’s business mentorship requests have skyrocketed since the pandemic began, rising to 150 to 200 per month from the original 50 to 75 monthly requests. . This summer alone, the chapter welcomed 148 new clients in July, 166 in August and 144 in September through its free mentoring services and workshops.

Meanwhile, the chapter, which is run by about 54 volunteers, added just seven new mentors in 2022 and is struggling to keep up with remarkable customer demand. The need for business start-up assistance offers entrepreneurs, executives, entrepreneurs and retired businessmen and women a chance to help the local business community. ‘Score’ with SCORE Philadelphia,’ the name of the current volunteer recruitment campaign, is now seeking active participants to become volunteer mentors with the Philadelphia Chapter.

“We have many opportunities to serve our customers,” Musgrove said. “It’s rewarding for our mentors to help them. »

Although many SCORE clients have great business ideas, they are looking for guidance in bringing those ideas to life. Mentors offer insight into developing a business plan, identifying their clients, financial planning, marketing, staffing and more.

Women make up more than half of the section’s clientele. Of these, most are women of color.

“A mentor has to start from scratch to help clients who are probably starting from scratch,” Musgrove said of the kinds of business leaders the chapter is looking for. “(Our chapter needs) volunteers who understand credit, banking, and know the Philadelphia business landscape; We need people who really understand the startup world.

When the national SCORE organization started in 1964, it focused primarily on recruiting retired executives and former business owners as mentors. This mindset has changed dramatically in recent years, with some mentors holding jobs or running businesses. Engagement is an integral part of mentoring, as is understanding a client’s needs and helping them mark the success of the business. Today, SCORE focuses on “advisors to American small businesses”.

In addition to living in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia Chapter SCORE Volunteer Mentors hail from New Jersey, the Mainline, and Bucks and Montgomery Counties. Many have professional or local roots in Philadelphia, but it doesn’t have to be. Additionally, most mentorships and workshops are conducted virtually and can take place almost anywhere with internet access.

“Score” with SCORE Philadelphia, mentoring the next generation of business leaders and providing invaluable opportunities to make an impact in your local business communities.

CEO Rich Neal, of Bala Cynwyd-based Advanced Behavior Treatment, has asked for help in forming a business partnership through the SCORE Philadelphia Chapter. Neal, whose company provides direct support to people with disabilities, worked with two Philadelphia SCORE mentors.

“Each [mentor] broadened our thought process by identifying issues we would never have thought of on our own,” Neal said. “Each mentor’s experience in their own professional career has proven invaluable to us, saving us hours of research and likely thousands of dollars in consulting fees.”

The Philadelphia Flyers (5-3-2) visit the Ottawa Senators (4-6-0) tonight at Canadian Tire Centre. The puck drops at 7 p.m.

Completing the first ten games of the 2022-2023 season, the Flyers didn’t put on an effective performance against the Toronto Maple Leafs. John Tortorella sent a message to Travis Konecny ​​and Kevin Hayes after a lackluster performance against the San Jose Sharks earlier this season. The effort in Toronto may have been the worst since losing to the Sharks at the Wells Fargo Center.

“When you’re building a team, you’re not just looking to build and develop your players; you’re also looking at players you just don’t think will make it.

John Tortorella; 02/11/2022

Morgan Frost was out of the lineup, and the next day Tortorella challenged Travis Sanheim to make a difference on “The best show ever.”

“Not good enough. Not good enough. I don’t know him; I haven’t seen him make a difference for us. I know him to the extent that people have told me about him, but I haven’t certainly not seen. Forget the use of the word “consistency; ‘I didn’t see it.’

John Tortorella; 03/11/2022

Whenever Tortorella challenges players, either publicly or privately, they respond with a passing grade. Hayes had two assists against the Florida Panthers in a 4-3 victory. Wade Allison responded to a reduction in ice time, gain some confidence after a goal and an assist against the Carolina Hurricanes. Tortorella praised Konecny:

“TK was probably our best player; not probably, it was. Other than our goaltender, Carter, TK has been our most consistent player. I love the way he plays. »

John Tortorella; 03/11/2022

The Senators sit at the bottom of the Atlantic Division. Their latest tilt resulted in a loss to the Vegas Golden Knights, 5-4. Planning may have played a role; Ottawa hasn’t faced a back-to-back game in 2022-23. Philadelphia has lost the second straight game three times, but is 2-0-0 in tilts after one game in a row. Tonight, the Flyers are in a prime position to respond with a road win.

Ottawa Senators

here is the provisional composition of the Senators, according to Claire Hanna:

Tkachuk-Stutzle-Giroux
DeBrincat-Pinto-Batherson
Motte-Gambrell-Joseph
Kelly-Kastelic-Watson

Chabot-Brannström
Sanderson-Hamonique
Holden-Zaitsev

Talbot
(Forsberg)

Claude Giroux, unsurprisingly, gets the spotlight. It will be the first time he will face Philadelphia since his trade last season with the Panthers. Giroux scored two even-strength goals against the Golden Knights, bringing his total to nine points (5G, 4A) this season.

“I never thought I would play for any other team, to be honest, until my last year with Philly when it all happened. Everything went quickly too. It’s something you never think about because you’ve been there a long time. I absolutely loved playing in front of these fans and wearing this jersey; I did it with great pride. I never really thought about playing for another team, but I’m here now.

Claude Giroux; 05/11/2022

Thomas Chabot (-4, 53.9% CF, 16BLK, 8GV) had a quality night against Vegas. He is a blue understudy on the power play. After the Flyers’ loss to the Maple Leafs, they were the most penalized team in the NHL. The only way for Philadelphia to mitigate Chabot is to be the more disciplined team. Currently, the Flyers are shorthanded in fourteenth place, despite the time they have been inside the box.

Philadelphia Flyers

here is the provisional line-up for Philadelphia:

Farabee-Hayes-Konecny
N. Cates-Laughton-Tippett
Bellows-Laczynski-MacEwen
Deslauriers-Sedlak-Allison

Provorov-DeAngelo
Sanheim-Ristolainen
Zamula Seeler

Stag
(Sandstrom)

Scott Laughton (3G, 1A) is due on the scoreboard tonight against Ottawa. He’s been very active against Toronto (3SOG, 5HIT, 1BLK) in every way Tortorella wants. Early in the first period, Laughton sent a puck over the post, which could have completely reversed the Flyers’ momentum. A veteran of the team and the only player with a letter stitched on his jersey, a matchup between Laughton and Giroux seems fair.

Nick Seeler (-1, 37.3% CF, 20HIT, 4GV) plays better than his stat line reflects. He’s another player to compliment Tortorella, proving himself against the Maple Leafs (4BLK, 2HIT, 2SOG) alongside Egor Zamula. In 2022-2023, Seeler is a constant on the bottom pair.

Place your bets

Leaflets money line (+155)
Claude Giroux score at any time (+240)
Scott Laughton 0.5 points (+110)
Thomas Chabot 0.5 points (-125)

Trevor Lawrence was 68-0 in the regular seasons as a high school and college quarterback and 96-4 overall. As such, he was revered at Cartersville (Ga.) High and Clemson and almost never heard his name taken in vain.

It never went to his head, says ex-Jaguars teammate Gardner Minshew.

“Super dude. Super humble,” Minshew said earlier this season before the Jaguars faced his current team, the Philadelphia Eagles. “He’s been told how good he is all his life. He doesn’t carry that with him.”

Disciplined Rush: If the Steelers defense is going to be successful this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, it will have to contain the man in charge of the offense, quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Hurts is having his best season ever, leading the Eagles to a 6-0 record to start the season while completing 123 of 184 pass attempts for 1,514 yards, six touchdowns and just two interceptions. Its threat begins right there, however. He also ran the ball 77 times this season for 293 yards and six touchdowns.

“His mobility is definitely a factor,” linebacker Alex Highsmith said. “We have to keep it in the pocket. When you play guys like him, Lamar (Jackson), Josh Allen, guys who can move like that, it’s an extra challenge. You can’t just rush in and you rushing all over the square because he will find escape routes and stuff like that. You really have to be able to disciplined rushing and compressing the pocket when playing guys like him who are able to move.

“If you run too high around him he can step in. If you come in too soon he can back up and get out. We just have to communicate. When we’re at our best, that’s when we communicate. I think he is important for us to continue to communicate and have a disciplined contingency plan.”

The Eagles are the best in the NFL in turnover rate, and a big part of that is Hurts’ ability to protect the ball, make smart decisions and not get thrown around. The goal this week is to create havoc for him to make those mistakes.

“They’re an effective offense,” Highsmith said. “He’s got the ball. They’ve got the ball. We have to be able to cause havoc and force them to make bad decisions by doing that. It starts with winning on first and second down. We have to stop racing at that time and, when the time comes, chasing it down the pass.”

Highsmith, who continues to lead the NFL with 6.5 sacks, knows the defense has to do its best to get what it wants against the Eagles. He sees the progress made by the defense and is well aware that they have the talent to do so.

“We know what type of group we can be up front,” Highsmith said. “This week we just have to take advantage of them when we have opportunities. When they don’t do it quickly, we have to take advantage of them and be able to finish those games.

“As a group, we have to keep improving every day. We know the kind of group we can be. We have to keep improving. When the QB has the ball, we have to take the opportunity to get up to ‘to him.’

Last week, the defense limited the Miami Dolphins to just 16 points, but the team remained coy. This week, Highsmith would like to stop the attack and limit the points even more.

“We know that at the end of the day, if there are points on the board, we can always do better,” Highsmith said. “We kept them at 16 points, but we can still be better. It’s just something we have to keep doing better. We finished the game strong, but we started so slow in the Miami game. It’s something we have to get out and start fast. When you start fast, you also have to finish fast.

“We went out and did a good job. At the end of the day, there were more points on the board than we wanted, so there is room for improvement, and always room for improvement. improve. But I think we’ve improved the last two games from that Buffalo game. We know the guys we have.

“We know the kind of defense we can be. It starts with training every week. We have to keep working on it.”

PHILADELPHIA CREAM – Doug McDermott hit four 3-pointers and scored all of his 14 points in the second half and the San Antonio Spurs beat Philadelphia 114-105 on Sunday night to send the 76ers to their third straight loss to open the season.

“We’re learning that we can play with anyone,” McDermott said. “We had a good win last night (against Indiana) and we weren’t complacent. We went out and faced a very good team.

Devin Vasell scored 20 of his 22 points in the first half, and Keldon Johnson had 21. Coming off a 134-137 win at Indiana on Friday night, the Spurs were 16-for-38 from 3-point range and had a 40-10 advantage in bench points.

“We worked really hard,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “Speed ​​of execution is not what we all like, but we all have it. What it showed me is that they really want to improve and know what the league is like. I thought that was pretty impressive.

Joel Embid had 40 points as Philadelphia fell to 0-3 for the first time since 2016-17.

Tyrese Maxey added 25 points, Tobias Harris was 15 and James Harden 12.

“Defensively we need to connect better,” Embiid said. “We don’t keep the ball well. We have to work on that. It’s a relatively new team and it’s going to take time to get everyone on the same page. But we’ll be fine.

San Antonio (2-1) has been more effective defensively than in either of its first two games, when it gave up 131.5 points on average. The Spurs forced the 76ers to 12 turnovers and limited second-chance points to 14.

Spurs were effective in limiting the beauty of Harden, who averaged 33 points and shot over 54% in each of the first two games. Harden was 4 of 17 from the field, going 1 of 5 from 3-point range.

“We didn’t execute our attack well in the last four minutes and down the stretch,” Popovich said. “But we played hard on defense, we executed and we played with a lot of grunt. I think that’s what got us through.

McDermott’s shots from the bench came at crucial moments, including eight straight midway through the fourth quarter after Philadelphia erased a 10-point deficit and took a lead.

“My role is to step in and provide a spark and make those shots,” McDermott said. “Either I go in and do that or I run and let the guys get free for shots. That’s what the coaches tell me to do. So if I can do it, I will. And we needed it tonight.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dak Prescott will be “in the lead chair as far as reps go” for practice in the latest sign the Dallas Cowboys star quarterback will return from injury Sunday against Detroit.

Coach Mike McCarthy left no doubt that Prescott’s five-game absence ended with a broken thumb on his throwing hand. The quarterback said over the weekend that he expected to play.

Prescott threw 40 passes in a reduced practice Wednesday after a late game in Philadelphia.

“I thought he looked really good,” McCarthy said. “We’ll be looking to expand that (Thursday) and put him in the lead chair as far as reps go just to give him the opportunity to get ready to play.”

The Cowboys (4-2) lost to the undefeated Eagles 26-17 with first place in the NFC East on the line.

They now face the Lions (1-4), one of two teams one win away from the NFC. Dallas receives another struggling opponent at home next week against Chicago.

Dallas has won four straight games with Cooper Rush replacing Prescott after the 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year fractured his right thumb in a season opener loss to Tampa Bay.

The winning streak pushed Rush’s career record to 5-0, including a win last season at Minnesota.

Although Rush no longer has a perfect record, the Cowboys are one of four NFC teams with a six-week winning record. Three of those teams are in the NFC East.

McCarthy credited the players’ participation in the offseason program and a fairly healthy training camp in California with helping Dallas stay in contention without Prescott.

“I think it’s credit to the whole team, especially what Cooper Rush was able to do,” McCarthy said. “I think it’s all of those things, they add up and it’s all part of keeping the train on track.”
