The Memphis Grizzlies traded guard Troy Daniels and a 2018 second-round pick to the Phoenix Suns for a protected 2018 Mark Barron Jersey second-round pick. The deal saves the Grizzlies $6.7 million and clears a roster spotPhoenix inherits two years at $3.4 million and $3.3 million for Daniels. The Suns now have 14 guaranteed contracts and $10.8 million remaining in cap space. Daniels averaged 8.2 PPG, 1.5 RPG and 0.7 APG during the 2016-17 season. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Bobby Marks contributed to this reportALLEN PARK, Mich. -- They almost never met. So Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford can thank four other NFL quarterbacks for getting their friendship started. The Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions starting quarterbacks were not initial picks to the 2015 Pro Bowl. When Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady pulled out, Stafford and Ryan earned selections. They became teammates and, within a week, friends. Before the Pro Bowl, they would say "Hey" to each other after games, but that was it. The Pro Bowl gave them a week to learn they had mutual interests in golf and good food. That they lived close to each other in Atlanta during the offseason. Ryan's wife, Sarah, and Stafford's soon-to-be-bride, Kelly, got along, too. They started hanging out in Georgia, and "your typical bromance" -- as Stafford's brother-in-law and mutual friend Chad Hall described it -- began. "To be honest, it has grown quicker than any relationship I've seen," said Tyler Heyman, another mutual friendMonths after the Pro Bowl, Matt and Sarah Ryan were guests at Matthew and Kelly Stafford's wedding. The couples vacationed together and became frequent companions in Georgia. The Ryans fit in with Stafford's crowd easily -- a group accustomed to treating Stafford as just another friend instead of a highly paid NFL quarterback. It made sense. Ryan and Stafford shared a profession and a competitive personality. Their relationship has given two men playing one of the highest-pressure positions in pro sports an outlet with each other. They can relax together and, if need be, lean on one another. So can their wives, able to share the ups and downs of being married to the face of an NFL franchise. They can ask questions and seek out advice, as Stafford did with Ryan when he contemplated seeing a quarterback guru for the first time. "It's really significant, and there's a guy who's literally been in your shoes," Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said. "And for Matt Ryan, who's done it a little longer than Matt, he could ask, 'Has this situation ever come up?' 'You know, it has.' So you don't have to be a lot older to be a really good mentor, and I think teammates can be great mentors to another. "And I'm not saying Matt Ryan is Matt Stafford's mentor, but I'm just saying there is a partnership at the same position, and it's even true for guys like myself who are in a head-coaching position -- that I have some people that I lean on and can ask questions to that might not be on our own team. So I totally recognize that and I think it's cool that they have a good friendship going." Stafford didn't divulge much about the friendship -- saying there were more important things at this point -- but did say, "it's kind of nice to have somebody in the league that you can talk ball with in the offseason, all that kind of stuff." Some of that comes on the golf course. Outings became common, including one to the Frederica Golf Club on St. Simons Island in Georgia. Both Ryan and Stafford can play. Considering their competitiveness, there needs to be something Cal Ripken Authentic Jersey to keep it interesting, not unlike millions of other golfers around the world. "There's no 'just let's go to see our best score.' There's some sort of competition," Hall said. "I'm the same way. It's hard to go play golf with just going to play. There's got to be something on the line. "Matt Ryan, he's the first one to come up with the game. He's probably the head of it, but then everyone gets involved. There's something involved." It's the same competitiveness that's displayed on football Sundays -- including this week, when friends become temporary enemies as the Lions and Falcons meet, a pair of 2-0 teams looking to establish early division leads in the NFC. But they've been teammates, too. About a year into the friendship, Kelly and Matthew Stafford invited Matt and Sarah Ryan to join their church league basketball team. The team, comprised mostly of Hall family members and friends, is the only co-ed team in an all-male league. Yet they've won two consecutive championshipsAdding the Ryans meant more athletes and competitiveness, since Sarah played point guard at Boston College and Matt was on a high school team with future NBA players Sean Singletary and Rob Kurz. Ryan and Stafford played the wings with Hall serving as the drive-and-dish point guard. It was more deferring than the two quarterbacks were used to, but they won the majority of their games -- typically followed by celebratory dinners at Mellow Mushroom. If they lost, the postgame meal was no guarantee. They didn't lose often. The quarterbacks wouldn't allow it

Heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder has heard all the critics, and he is oh, so tired of them. They are the Festus Ezeli Womens Jersey ones who say that he has avoided tough opponents during his nearly three-year title reign. Indeed, he has not exactly fought murders' row, notching defenses against Eric Molina, Johann Duhaupas, Artur Szpilka, a long-faded Chris Arreola and Gerald Washington. But he did sign to fight top contender Alexander Povetkin and was headed to his home country of Russia to fight him last year when the fight was canceled after Povetkin tested positive for a banned substance less than two weeks before the bout. ADVERTISEMENT But the criticism continued, and Wilder could take it no more. He instructed that his team, which was not too anxious to put him in an extremely dangerous fight, to make a tough one for him, and they have done just that. Wilder was on hand in New York on Wednesday for a news conference to formally announce that he will face perhaps the most avoided heavyweight in the division, Luis "King Kong" Ortiz. They will meet Nov. 4 (Showtime, 9 p.m. ET) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, in one of the most significant fights that can be made in boxing's glamour division. "I've been waiting for this moment for a long time, and I'm excited that the time has come to meet Luis Ortiz,'' Wilder said. "Ortiz is considered the boogeyman of the sport, and I am the hardest hitter in boxing. When you put us together in a ring, you will get one of the best heavyweight fights in a long time. I will unify the division. This I promise. This is the first step towards unifying. Any heavyweight that gets in my way is getting knocked out.'' Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs), 31, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, will be making his sixth title defense and fighting for the first time since retaining his belt by fifth-round knockout of Washington on Feb. 25 in Birmingham, Alabama. "This fight is happening because Deontay Wilder wants to beat the best, regardless of the risk," promoter Lou DiBella said. "He will knock 'King Kong' off the Empire State Building for the world to see. This fight is happening because Deontay Wilder wants the world to know that he is afraid of no one, and that he's prepared to fight anyone, and he's the best heavyweight in the world today. I could not be prouder of him for making this fight happen. "This is the toughest fight that Deontay Wilder could engage in right now. This is the most difficult opponent he possibly could fight. Luis Ortiz is the boogeyman of this division. You haven't heard anyone scream about fighting Luis Ortiz. A lot of people were shocked when they heard that Deontay Wilder wants to fight him. He not only wants to fight him, but he insisted upon it." Wilder, who claimed a bronze medal in the 2008 Olympics, is one of the hardest punchers in boxing. He can turn out the lights with one shot and has done so often. Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs), 38, a former Cuban amateur standout who defected and fights out of Miami, Florida, is capable of doing the same. But Wilder believes he is the superior fighter and demanded the match. "I am the best. I am the toughest heavyweight in the division. I am the man in the division. I don't care what anybody else has going on. You've got to come through me," Wilder said. "When I knock him out, I want my due respect. I'm the only American heavyweight champion of the world, and I am the man. Nobody is stronger physically, mentally and spiritually. They are all scared of me. "I'm the heavyweight in the division with real knockout power. I put grown men down easily. On Nov. 4, Ortiz is going down. After that, you already know who is next. I'm Jordan Jenkins Jersey ready to unify."

An appeals court next month will hear arguments on a stay that has kept Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott on the field while his suspension makes its way through the court system. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed Friday to hold oral arguments between the NFL and NFL Players Association. The session is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET on Oct. 2 in New Orleans. ADVERTISEMENT Friday's announcement means Elliott will be able to play Monday against the Arizona Cardinals and in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams. The NFL is seeking to have Elliott serve his six-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy immediately. The NFL's request for a stay seeks to nullify a preliminary injunction granted in a Texas court that has allowed Elliott to play. The court is seeking briefs from both sides by Wednesday on the issue of U.S. District Judge Amos Mazzant's jurisdiction. Elliott has rushed for 112 yards on 33 carries with zero touchdowns this season. He admitted to having a "bad effort" during a loss Sunday to the Denver BroncosLINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska's administrative leadership met with the football coaching staff on Thursday to deliver the news that athletic director Shawn Eichorst had been fired. University system president Hank Bounds and chancellor Ronnie Green told the entire staff at once -- that is, except third-year head coach Mike Riley. He was informed separately"I don't know what that means for sure," Riley said. Riley, in fact, said later that he thought he was pulled aside out of respect for his relationship with Eichorst. "I appreciate it," Riley said Thursday, his voice trailing off. "I don't know." What Riley does likely know but didn't say in public, surrounded by some three dozen reporters for an otherwise inconsequential post-practice briefing ahead of the Cornhuskers' meeting with Rutgers on Saturday, is that he's left to twist in the wind as Nebraska considers candidates to determine the coach's fate. The move to fire Eichorst, Bounds said earlier on Thursday, "is not about Mike Riley." It unquestionably, though, involves his football program, 1-2 for the second time in three seasons after a home loss last week to Northern Illinois. The Huskers had endured such a three-game start just once in 54 years prior to 2015Bounds and Green emphasized that they strive for Nebraska to "compete," presumably for championships in the Big Ten and beyond. The Amos Youth Jersey Huskers last won a league title in 1999 and this season celebrate the 20th anniversary of their most recent of five national championships. "Why shouldn't we have those aspirations here?" Bounds said. Nebraska has rarely appeared further from the top than at this moment. After Rutgers, it goes on the road next Friday to face Illinois and conceivably may not be favored to win again in 2017 -- what with Ohio State and Penn State on the schedule from the Big Ten East and divisional games at Purdue and Minnesota, and home against Wisconsin, Northwestern and Iowa. If Riley's team fails to "compete" against the Big Ten's best, this year won't end well for the coach. "You control what you can," the 64-year-old Riley said. "And what you can't, then you've got to let go. I know I'm really confident in what we're doing and the people that we have, how this thing is being run in the football office. I understand both expectations and performance. I get all that, but I actually am energized about the future. "It's not that complicated. It's clear where we have to go on the football field. It's clear we have to get recruiting to that point where we can get where we want to go." The coach said he's especially excited about the 2017 group of newcomers, most of whom are not playing this fall, and the current group of committed recruits. Is he just trying to buy time? That doesn't seem to be Riley's style. But in keeping pace with the school's administration, time is apparently of the essence -- especially in this season that features a new three-day December signing period, which may cause programs nationally to expedite coaching changes. We likely witnessed on Thursday Nebraska's attempt to get ahead of the curve. An interim athletic director -- apparently from outside the program, as Bounds and Green bypassed the opportunity to immediately promote one of Eichorst's lieutenants -- will be named soon. Nebraska plans to use a search firm to find a permanent replacement. Don't expect the school to drag its feet. Asked if he felt his equity in the program had diminished, Riley grew momentarily agitated, the only time his cadence quickened in a 15-minute inquisition. "I'm not going to worry about that," he said. The departure of Eichorst, a one-man search committee in picking Riley to replace Bo Pelini, saddened Riley and surprised him. "It's going to be perceived in a million different ways," Riley said. None of those ways shine an especially positive light on the coach, 16-13 at Nebraska after losing six of his past nine Amos Youth Jersey games"What we've always done when it's hard is not to treat people any differently," Riley said. "Don't make up things. Just coach. When you just approach it that way, it's not that hard." Coaching and playing football is supposed to be fun, Riley said. Clearly, Thursday was not, the latest in a line of dark days over the past 15 years, which have seen Nebraska replace three coaches and now look to fill the shoes of a fourth departing athletic director. "It's only fun, I've found," Riley said, "when you win, so we're trying every way just to do that." His time to win, perhaps, has grown short.

After sweeping their way through the semifinals, both the Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks have a chance to complete the third perfect postseason since the WNBA Finals moved to a best-of-five series in 2005. However, the BPI predicts that this year's Finals, which open Sunday (ABC, 3:30 p.m. ET), have a 37.5 percent chance to go the full five games for the third straight year. In the first 10 years under the five-game format, the Finals went the distance three times, compared Justin Simmons Authentic Jersey to five Finals that ended in sweepsWhile the same teams met in the 2016 Finals, this year's matchup pits balance against power. According to ESPN's WNBA Basketball Power Index (BPI), the reigning champion Sparks enter the Finals with an offense nearly as solid as its defense, with both units adding an expected five points to the final scoring margin against an average WNBA team. On the other hand, the Lynx begin their title quest with an offense making more than nine times the expected contribution of its defense. This was evident in the semifinals, as Minnesota averaged seven more points per game than the Sparks, but allowed three more points per game on defenseOverall, the BPI rates the Lynx and Sparks at nearly equal strength, expecting Game 1 to be decided by less than a basket -- following suit of the 2016 WNBA Finals winner-take-all Game 5. While the BPI gives the Lynx a 52.1 percent chance to tie the Houston Comets with a fourth title, history does not side with Minnesota. The last NBA/WNBA team to lose a winner-take-all league championship by one point was the 1955 Fort Wayne Pistons, who lost Game 7 to the Syracuse Nationals. The Pistons went on to lose in the championship the following seasonSometimes the "right" fit actually isn't. Consider Los Angeles Sparks guard Odyssey Sims, who is from Dallas, went to Baylor, and was drafted No. 2 by the Tulsa Shock in 2014. The Shock then became the Wings when they moved to Dallas in 2016, so Sims was back in her hometown. Worked out perfectly. Except ... not really. Sims had three good seasons with the Shock/Wings, starting almost 90 percent of the games she played and averaging 15.5 points. Yet Sims wasn't developing all aspects of her game. She didn't know it at the time, but acknowledges it now. And in her first season with the Sparks, she's going to the WNBA Finals. "I have to let this all soak in," Sims said after scoring a team-high 22 points as Los Angeles beat the Phoenix Mercury Game 3 Sunday to sweep their semifinal series. "This is a great opportunity. I have some of the greatest teammates I've ever played with." That was a big part of what the Sparks were counting on when they traded for Sims in February. Los Angeles had lost veteran guard Kristi Toliver to free agency. The Sparks needed another impact perimeter player who could scoreSims fit that bill. But while she is a good on-ball defender, she has not been known to maximize her talent on defense. And the Sparks happen to have two of the best guards in the business at doing that: Alana Beard and Essence Carson. But would Sims, who turned 25 in July, be open to paying close attention to the Sparks veterans and emulating them? Or was she already set in her ways: a good scorer who sometimes didn't stay engaged on defense? We've seen the answer. "Odyssey has been really coachable," Sparks coach Brian Agler said. "I've been pleased with how she's accepted that." Carson had injuries that forced her to miss 10 games this season. In late July, Sims moved into the starting lineup to stay. "She's very inquisitive, she wants to know things," Beard said. "And I respect that. Odyssey was a go-to player in Tulsa, and for her to come into this system and allow us to help teach her and coach her, it says a lot about her as an individual and how much she wants to grow." It wasn't easy. Sims was like a lot of young players who've had success but are faced with different demands. She was at the Sparks' training camp in its entirety, and Michal Neuvirth Youth JerseyAgler paid close attention to everything she did. It got to her at times. "Everyone has their comfort zone, and once you're in it, you want to stay there," Sims said. "I think here, Brian has pulled me out of my comfort zone in a positive way. "When I first got here, I told him, 'I'm not a great help-side defender.' I know sometimes when the ball is reversed or it's on the opposite side of me, I get stagnant. I don't move. I'm aware of it because I watch so much film. He holds us accountable, and I've been working on it." As she studied even more video, she confronted other things, too. "When I made a turnover, I wouldn't get back," she said. "I wasn't hustling for loose ballsBut even as she saw these mistakes, hearing about them wasn't fun. Agler could sense that Sims was sometimes caught between understanding his critiques and being frustrated by them. He encouraged her to talk to other players about it -- including guard Chelsea Gray, who went through some similar growing pains last year when she came to the Sparks. "Chelsea was great. She said, 'Listen, learn from it, but don't let it get to you,'" Sims said. "I realized it was only about trying to help me get better. Take it, use it, and keep it moving." As it happens, the 2016 trade to get Gray from Connecticut also ended up helping the Sparks get Sims. The 2017 draft pick (No. 4) that Los Angeles got from the Sun, along with Gray, was the big chip that the Sparks sent to Dallas for Sims. The two deals meant the Sparks gave up post player Jonquel Jones to the Sun and Allisha Gray to the Wings, and both have been very good for those teams. Jones was named the WNBA Most Improved Player this season, and Gray was Rookie of the Year. But you have to give talent to get talent, and the Sparks -- who for years seemed to struggle to find the right guard combination -- would not be the team they are without Gray or Sims. Gray came on strong as the season progressed last year and played an important role in the playoffs. Sims is doing the same thing this year. EDITOR'S PICKS Sparks, Lynx to meet in WNBA Finals once again It's no surprise that Los Angeles and Minnesota will meet for the second consecutive season in the WNBA Finals. But that doesn't mean both teams didn't have to work really hard to get here. 2017 WNBA playoff schedule and results Minnesota has home-court advantage throughout the postseason. Lynx sweep Mystics on return trip to WNBA Finals A pair of pivotal runs pushed Minnesota past Washington in Game 3 of the semifinals, as the Lynx advanced to their third consecutive WNBA Finals appearance. Sims averaged 9.6 points in the regular season. However, since the of August, she has averaged 16.5 points over 14 games, including three playoff games. "She's given us a different dimension," Agler said. "Especially her ability to break down defenses." Sims got better with each playoff game against Phoenix, shooting 9-of-12 from the field in the series clincher. "You want to take Sims away from her left hand, but she's very crafty," Phoenix coach Sandy Brondello said of the southpaw. "Once she goes downhill, she has really good body control and can finish at the rim." The phrase "going downhill," of course, has become basketball parlance for penetrating and attacking the basket. The 5-foot-8 Sims is adept at that, and it has become a bigger part of her game with the Sparks. Last year with the Wings, she took almost three times as many 3-pointers as she did this year. As Sims continues to refine her offense, she will likely improve the balance between her perimeter prowess and her ability to penetrate -- and become the defensive player she now aspires to be. All of which is great for the Sparks. "I couldn't ask to be in a better place, on the court or off the court," Sims said. "I love it here. I am taking it all in and living in the moment. I wake up every day, and I'm ready to come to work and get better

Let me start with an unpopular opinion: I totally understand and support the NHL’s pre-season crackdown on faceoff infractions.

Yes,adidas Jaromir Jagr jersey, it’s true there’ve been hiccups in the league’s attempt to break from tradition and actually enforce its rulebook. Fans have booed. Players have expressed disgust. And the whole fiasco of watching draw-taking lawbreakers skate a trail to the penalty box has taken, a ridiculously long time., on most nights

As Leafs centreman Nazem Kadri was saying on Thursday, speaking of the Tuesday pre-season game in which the Leafs were tagged with three minor penalties for faceoff transgressions and were booted from too many draws to count, 33 minutes to complete,adidas Jonathan Quick jersey, “I felt like I played a 3 1/2-hour game.” (The game actually took 2 hours,authentic Drew Doughty jersey, way too long considering no overtime).

And yes, one can only hope the boardroom powerbrokers don’t eventually push for the ultimate torture — video review of faceoff infractions. That’d be a new kind of purgatory., there’s always a chance the whole schmozzle could get worse. A season after hockey lovers were driven to tears by the NHL’s sudden obsession with frame-by-frame video analysis of suspected offsides

All that said,authentic Jaromir Jagr jersey, everybody who’s upset about this ought to breathe a bit. Let’s not forget we’re in the opening few days of the pre-season. Nobody’s soiling sacred ground here. And even if the league’s execution has probably been lacking — veteran veteran centreman Dominic Moore said he didn’t know anything about the new push by officials until the moments before Tuesday’s game — the essence of the undertaking is hard to criticize.

As Stephen Walkom,authentic Jonathan Quick jersey, the NHL’s director of officials, authentic Dustin Brown jersey,was saying in an interview on Thursday, Walkom said, the new emphasis is meant to ensure the faceoff is ultimately a competition of stick-on-puck skill rather than a body-on-body free-for-all. For most of the past decade, adidas Drew Doughty jersey,the faceoff had devolved into a “rugby scrum.” And Walkom said the complaints from players were too loud to ignore.

“It was becoming so the linesmen couldn’t even drop the puck anymore,adidas Anze Kopitar jersey,” Walkom said. “We weren’t enforcing the existing rules.”,authentic Anze Kopitar jersey, because the players were right on top of them. Too often the linesmen were getting slew-footed off the draw

For that sin against the rulebook,adidas Dustin Brown jersey, Walkom pleaded guilty.

Ryan Trahan, a budding YouTube entrepreneur and Texas A&M cross country athlete, has been told by the NCAA he can have his Amos Youth Jersey cake but can't eat it, too. Trahan, a 17-year-old freshman, is seeking a ruling that will allow him to stay eligible while continuing to promote his ecologically friendly bottle company via a YouTube account that has grown to more than 14,000 subscribers. "These are the two biggest things in my life," Trahan told The Dallas Morning News. "They're asking me to throw one out the window, essentially." Trahan and the A&M athletic department are working with the NCAA to come up with a solutionTrahan said he has been told to omit references to either his company, Neptune Bottle, or his collegiate athletic pursuits. "I don't understand how I'm allowed to have a job at McDonald's or something while being a student-athlete," Trahan said in a recent video post. "But I can't have a company that I'm passionate about, that I've been working on for over a year now and keep my identity. Like, how is that right in any way?"Trahan's status for this weekend's home meet is in question, according to the Morning News report, which cited a team spokesperson. Trahan ran unaffiliated in the Aggies' first cross country meet this season but competed with the team in its second meet at Georgia. Trahan's plight isn't entirely unique. Central Florida kicker Donald De La Haye was granted a waiver request but turned it down after the NCAA ruled him ineligible over advertising revenue generated from a YouTube channel. "The waiver, which was granted, stated De La Haye could maintain his eligibility and continue to monetize videos that did not reference his status as a student-athlete or depict his football skill or ability," Central Florida said in a statement, according to the Orlando SentinelThe idea of a player or team being "on pace" to do something is a joke until it isn't. Through two weeks last year, Matt Forte was on pace for a 1,568-yard rushing season, while Ezekiel Elliott was on pace for 1,072 yards. Forte finished with 813 yards, just over half of what we saw coming after two games. Elliott ran for 1,065 yards -- nearly hitting that full-season mark -- over his next nine games. And yet, sometimes, pace does matter. Mike Evans had 169 receiving yards and two scores through two games, for a 1,352-receiving yard, 16-touchdown pace. By the end of the year, Evans was in line with those totals, racking up 1,321 yards and 12 scores. The early, career-high expectations Evans had set for himself through two weeks were met. It's too early to draw conclusions about what will happen over the rest of 2017 from two weeks, but this is a good Cam Ward Jerseypoint to take stock of what has happened so far, both good and bad. Let's run through some of the notable outliers and surprise packages from around the league and break down whether they're likely to keep at their pace -- or something similar -- over the remainder of the seasonNew York's uncompromisingly awful offensive line has made the Cowboys' and Lions' pass rushes look like the '85 Bears in prime time over the past two weeks. The Giants have been built around getting pressure with their front four on defense for more than 30 years now, but general manager Jerry Reese has struggled to repair the other side of the line for several years running.While Manning can be a punchline at times, one of his hidden virtues has been staying on the field. Manning hasn't missed a game since taking over for Kurt Warner midway through the 2004 season, a streak that stretched to 201 games with Monday's loss to the Lions. One of the biggest reasons why? Manning keeps himself off the turf. Eli had been sacked on just 4.6 percent of his dropbacks heading into the season, and he has been sacked more than 30 times in a season only once. That season was 2013, when Manning also led the league with 27 interceptions, and it would be no surprise if the two were related. Manning has been under siege in 2017, going down on 10.3 percent of his dropbacks, and while that won't keep up to such an extreme, the situation isn't likely to get much better. The Giants are locked in at left tackle with the excruciating Ereck Flowers and are already down to backups on the right side with Bobby Hart injured. They have no running game to take the load off Manning. Their first-round pick was tight end Evan Engram, a promising athlete who can't block. Even once Odell Beckham Jr. is back, where is the blocking help going to come from? Even worse, the schedule is about to get a lot more devastating. Over the next five weeks, the Giants have to play the Eagles, Chargers, Broncos and Seahawks, who have four of the best pass rushes in football. Later in year, they'll face Aaron Donald, Justin Houston, Chandler Jones and Khalil Mack. It would hardly be a surprise to see Eli hit the turf 40 times or more this season
