Empire State Building shows its Patriots, Eagles colors

Perhaps it’s a subtle commentary on the state of the Giants and Jets or maybe it’s just a way to capitalize on the biggest sporting event of the year.

Either way, it seems strange the Empire State Building would want to remind New Yorkers that the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles will be playing in the Super Bowl in two weeks.

The skyline light show certainly has some flair to it, but it seems mind-boggling that such an iconic New York symbol would be giving props to two teams that are rivals to the the Empire State’s three representatives — the Giants, Jets and Bills.

Tom Brady proved polarizing, emerging as both the most and least liked quarterback when given the options of him, Eli Manning, Cam Newton, Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan, Russell Wilson and, for some reason, Tim Tebow. When asked who they thought would actually win the Super Bowl, most respondents went with the Patriots (52 percent to 36 percent over the Falcons).

After their victory, Eagles OT Lane Johnson walked around the field wearing a dog mask to signify that they were underdogs. Fans who saw Johnson wearing his dog mask made sure to purchase their own before the NFC Championship game.

In the NFC Championship game, with the outstanding play of QB Nick Foles, the Eagles took down the Vikings, 38-7, to advance to the Super Bowl. For the third time in the Eagles history, they are headed to the big game, however, for the third time this postseason, they will be the underdog.

Porzingis has averaged 20.5 points on the first four games of the trip and almost surely will be named among the seven Eastern Conference reserves when the full All-Star Game rosters are officially announced shortly before Tuesday’s tip-off.

Curry, as the leading vote-getter in the Western Conference, will join LeBron James as captains for the game. Under a new format, they will pick their teams from the 24 selected All-Stars, with James getting first pick among the starters.

Giants GM: We’ll likely ‘keep moving’ with Eli Manning

We’re going to work our fannies off and get it fixed.

That’s how New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman ended his introductory news conference Friday after talking for more than a half an hour about plans to come in here every day and kick ass for the 2-13 team.

No. 1, who doesn’t want a lot of money? Everybody wants a lot of money, guys, Gettleman said. Obviously, I don’t know Odell [Beckham], never met him. I’m looking forward to it. Obviously he’s an extremely talented kid and makes stuff happen.

This is a big boy league, Gettleman said. You’ve got to put your big boy pants on. If the player’s upset, so be it.

Gettleman obviously impressed Mara and co-owner Steve Tisch during his first run in New York before he left to be the Panthers’ general manager. Time will tell whether he’ll help guide the Giants to relevance next season.

Consistent with the support we have provided in the past for special events such as the Super Bowl, the FBI will conduct name checks as requested using personally identifiable information, an FBI spokesperson said in an emailed statement. We seek to do this in a manner which is efficient and effective, yet minimally intrusive. Identification of race is not required to complete these checks, and we are working to reduce any confusion about this issue.

Applicants may select American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian or Pacific Islander, Black, Unknown, or White, including Hispanic in the race field.

Racial identification is crucial for sight identification for law enforcement personnel, said James J. Wedick, a retired FBI agent of three decades and security consultant. Large event venues increasingly are asking for racial identification in recent years, but most of the time, providing that information is optional.

Brock Osweiler reminded everyone why the Texans were willing to spend $72 million on him last year.

Osweiler’s 54-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeff Heuerman helped lift the Broncos to a 25-13 win over the Colts Thursday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The touchdown pass was perhaps Osweiler’s best throw of the season as he hit Heuerman in stride over the middle.

Thursday’s game didn’t mean much as both the Broncos (5-9) and Colts (3-11) have been eliminated from playoff contention. But as the teams prepare for the future, Osweiler made his case to be in the mix for the Broncos quarterback job next season.

Osweiler was a second-round pick of Denver in 2012 and started seven games in 2015 to help the Broncos win Super Bowl 50. He then left to sign a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans but was traded to the Browns after one disappointing season. When the Browns released him in September, the Broncos brought him back. He’s appeared in five games with three starts this year and has 895 passing yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions.

Tatum’s a rookie with a 64 percent True Shooting Percentage and third on the team in scoring despite only taking nine shots per game. He remains the league’s leader in three-point percentage and has destroyed every challenge put in his way with dynamite.

There was a bit of laughter when it was reported that Boston was considering taking Tatum with the first overall pick, and a little more when they traded down and essentially passed on Markelle Fultz. Tatum was well liked, obviously, but no one saw this coming. He’s a 19-year-old who does 29-year-old things — side stepping defenders to free himself up for three-pointers, embracing pick-and-roll coverages, cutting into the lane hard with purpose, knowing when to grab-and-go with a defensive rebound and when he should just find his point guard.

Ain’t no more games with Jones for LeBron. We don’t shoot floaters anymore — we’re dunking now.

Good on Jones for showing James up one time for the one time. He may never do it again in his career, but all you really need is one moment against The King. Plus, the Timberwolves are currently beating the Cavaliers by 30 points at halftime, so it looks like Jones will get the last laugh.

From this day forward, in the words of the dubious Bryan Birdman Williams, LeBron will put some RESPECK on Jones’ name.

With Rodgers out, the Packers had to find different ways to move the ball.

Brett Hundley played well enough at quarterback to keep the Packers afloat in the NFC playoff race while Aaron Rodgers was shelved for almost eight full games. Hundley had a ton of help from his offensive supporting cast �� the same one that will set up Rodgers to find a better groove in his return.

The 3-4 record in his absence is not great, but in the end, the Packers, now 7-6, fell to opponents above .500 and defeated the bottom-feeders they should have beat.

Facing the 9-4 Panthers on the road in Week 15 is a tough first matchup for Rodgers in his return. But the quarterback doesn’t need to shoulder as much of a load to get Green Bay a victory.

There were four important developments for the Packers’ offense as they adapted to survive without Rodgers.

Injuries: The Falcons have been banged up for weeks, but they had no players listed on their final injury report. LB Dannell Ellerbe and CB Sidney Jones are the only Eagles players listed as questionable, with both dealing with hamstring injuries.

Take it on the run baby: Current weather models suggest the East Coast will have emerged from Arctic conditions for the opener of the divisional round. Fortunately, Atlanta’s tailback tandem of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman should thrive in any environment. The duo helped wear down the Rams and could tax even the Eagles’ rotating fleet of linemen. Freeman, who gives maximum effort on every play, is a joy to watch. The Eagles would surely prefer to rely on their trio of LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement, who aren’t as explosive as their Atlanta counterparts but can certainly milk a clock and occasionally tear off chunks of yardage if Foles can keep the Falcons defense honest.

What figures to be the best game of the divisional round, a redux of the Vikings’ 29-19 home victory in the season opener.

Both sides are balanced and have enough experience to handle the pressure. While the Saints have the Hall of Fame-level skills of Drew Brees at quarterback, Minnesota’s Case Keenum has been among the most pleasant surprises in the league.

Look for this one to come down to which defense asserts itself. Coach Mike Zimmer has built quite the unit in the Twin Cities.

Well, you want to have pass rushers, you want to have guys that can cover, he says. Without giving away all my secrets, I like a certain body type with guys. You can kind of look at most of them and tell what we’re trying to get. Athleticism, guys who can think quickly on their feet, safeties that have versatility, corners who can cover.

Week 17 in the NFL didn’t look like much going in.

Resting stars, chilly temperatures, plenty of teams with nothing on the line. Much of the focus already had turned to what came after — coach firings and hirings. Yeah, as of a couple of days ago, you wouldn’t have expected much for a post-Week 17 column about what we learned.

But then, in the waning hours of 2017, the Cincinnati Bengals ripped out the Baltimore Ravens’ hearts and handed a late holiday gift to the long-suffering football fans of the Buffalo Bills.

Entering the day, ESPN’s Football Power Index rated the Ravens’ chances of making the playoffs at 97 percent. All they had to do was beat the Bengals at home, and even if they didn’t do that, all they needed was for the Titans to lose to the Jaguars or the Bills to lose in Miami. Ravens fans slipped into their old Ray Lewis jerseys Sunday morning with a high degree of confidence. I mean, 97 percent, right?

And here’s the final AFC wild card plot, from after the Bills’ win was complete, of an insane late afternoon window.

Thomas made his debut the night before against Portland and scored 17 points off the bench in just 18 minutes of action. He’s still finding his rhythm and he’s still testing out his hip, but the old familiar confidence was on display early and often against the Blazers.

Thomas is slated to rejoin the starting lineup against Orlando Saturday and then the team will go from there. It will be an adjustment, but it’s one they’ve been waiting to make.

He’s somebody you have to trap and you got to gameplan for, and that can help us with energy and movement, Kyle Korver said. I think we’re going to have to change how we play a little bit, which will be an adjustment in the beginning, but in the long run will be really good. We’re all excited for it. Tonight’s a bit of a bummer, but it’s just one game. This team is going to keep evolving.

That, as much as anything, is the real story of this conference this season. These teams are obviously much different than the ones that met in conference finals last season and they both recognize that where they end up will be drastically different than where they are now. That doesn’t make for compelling January basketball, but maybe we’ll all be in for something special this spring.

The Steelers should be shaking their heads over what could have been against the Patriots.

The Patriots didn’t get many style points for their victory in Pittsburgh, but the gritty performance reinforced why Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are the NFL championship favorites again.

Nick Foles kept the offense rolling, but some of the old concerns about the Eagles’ pass defense popped up against the Giants. Philly will look to finish strong with two straight at home.

They dodged a bullet when they learned Antonio Brown should return to be a difference-maker in the rematch.

The defense dominated and the running game delivered in a get-well outing against the hapless Bengals. The Vikes have fewer holes than any NFC team with a high floor, but the key in the playoffs will be hitting the ceiling with Case Keenum.

But Butler put his body on the line and drew a much-needed charge on Rondae Hollis-Jefferson milliseconds before he hit Carroll in the corner. For the rest of the third quarter the Wolves outscored the Nets 25-14, including a 23-7 run.

The fourth quarter is where winners win, and that’s where Butler butters his bread. Only two players — LeBron James and Kyrie Irving — have scored more points in clutch situations (game within five points with five or fewer minutes left) than Butler this season. But this time, his non-scoring plays were the difference.

With two minutes to go and Minnesota down four, Butler soared over Hollis-Jeffereson to recover a critical 50/50 loose ball.

Thirty seconds later, he comes up with a pivotal block on Hollis-Jefferson.

And right after that block, he clears Quincy Acy from helping on Tyus Jones’s game-tying layup.

Derrick Henry isn’t a big or brash talker. That’s what made the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner calling his performance kind of soft in Tennessee’s regular-season finale stand out.

The massive running back sure made up for that with an NFL postseason debut for the record books.

Getting Henry to acknowledge any change in his own confidence or being pleased after a big game is as tough as tackling him in the open field.

I’m just trying to play better every week, Henry said . I’m going to get another chance to play — it’s a great team in a good environment — so just making sure I’m doing all the right things this week.

Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell to sit Week 17 vs. Browns, Steelers teammate says

The Steelers’ coaching staff has not announced whether Ben Roethlisberger or Le’Veon Bell will play in Pittsburgh’s season finale against the Browns Sunday, but offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert sure seems convinced the decision has been made.

We’ll have Landry Jones in there, Gilbert told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Thursday. We won’t have Ben. Or 8-4 (Antonio Brown). Or LeVeon Bell.

Gilbert elaborated further on Roethlisberger.

Ben’s not there so they’ll get a little taste of (QB) Landry Jones, he said. So we don’t know what to expect from them.”

Jones would not confirm whether he was starting, referring to it as a coach’s decision. Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley also said the choice had not been made yet.

However, if Gilbert is right, it will certainly make Sunday’s game more interesting. The Browns are currently 0-15 and will be trying to avoid becoming just the second team to finish 0-16.

The Steelers (12-3) have clinched a first-round bye and have a slim chance to secure home-field advantage with a win and a Patriots loss to the Jets. The latter seems unlikely so Pittsburgh is correct in resting their stars.

Miller, who had a combined .914 save percentage with the Canucks, bumped his mark up seven points to .935 with the Ducks.

It’s nice to come back, he said. I just tried to have fun with it.

Anders Nilsson allowed four goals on 19 shots for slumping Vancouver, which has just two wins in its last 12 games, before getting pulled early in the third period. Jacob Markstrom came on and finished with seven saves.

Making his first start since a 7-5 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Dec. 19, Nilsson gave up a bad goal just 56 seconds into the game. Lindholm fired a clearing attempt from his own blue line that Nilsson steered into the path of a hard-charging Henrique, who swooped into the corner and fired a shot from below the goal-line that somehow caromed off the goalie’s stick and in for his ninth of the season.

You’d like to make every save out there, said Nilsson, who saw his save percentage dip to .900. First one was definitely on me, that’s something I would like to have back.

Giants suspend CB Eli Apple for final week of season

The Giants suspended cornerback Eli Apple for Sunday’s Week 17 game against the Redskins, the team announced Wednesday.

The Rockets had hoped to limit Paul’s playing time in his second game back after missing three games with a groin injury. But with Harden out, he ended up playing 42 minutes.

We worked too hard to let that game go, Paul said. We had fought. Different guys had been in and out of the lineup. James carried us all game long and different guys had to step up and it’s just will at that point. Let’s just figure out a way to win it.

Julius Randle set season highs with 29 points and 15 rebounds, but fouled out with about three minutes left in the first overtime.

It’s obviously frustrating but … we’re short-handed right now and it would’ve been a lot easier to kind of just pack it in and individually go out and try to put up big numbers until we get healthy or until we get to an easier part of the schedule, Lakers coach Luke Walton said. Our guys really came together tonight and really played well for most of the game.

Los Angeles was up by 4 in the second overtime before a dunk by Black followed by a 3-pointer from Trevor Ariza made it 140-139 with 2 1/2 minutes remaining. The Lakers scored the next three points before Paul’s free throws tied it.

Ariza finished with a season-high 26 points.

Make no mistake about it so there’s not a lot of talk about it during the week: We’re going to play to win and we’re going to do everything possible to win this game, period, Marrone told reporters Tuesday, per the Florida Times-Union. I’m not even thinking about what happens beyond that. That’s the way we’re going to go about our business this week.

Marrone acknowledged the decision is driven by the fact Jacksonville lost at the 49ers in Week 16, as the team wants to regain momentum ahead of the postseason. His players are on board with the mentality.

A controversial non-call after Giannis Antetokounmpo stepped on the baseline before finishing a dunk with 1.1 seconds left gave the Milwaukee Bucks a 97-95 win over the Thunder, snapping OKC’s six-game winning streak.

Individually or collectively, members of the Dallas Cowboys are planning to make a unity statement before Monday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals in the wake of President Donald Trump’s comments, but the exact details have not been worked out yet, according to multiple sources.

On Sunday, every team had some form of demonstration as a response to Trump’s comments that owners should fire players who disrespect the flag by not standing during the national anthem. Hundreds of players, coaches, executives and owners stood together arm in arm, sat, knelt, raised a fist or stayed in the locker room during the national anthem.

Cutler led consecutive field-goal drives in the fourth quarter to erase a four-point deficit in a duel of efficient attrition with fellow veteran gunslinger Philip Rivers. Beyond that viral incompletion, Cutler went 24-of-33 passing for 230 yards and a touchdown to Stills, rating a fine 101.8. He didn’t have a turnover, took only two sacks against a good Chargers pass rush and played within the offense with a 72.7 completion percentage. It was Jay Cutler smoking, and not Smokin’ Jay Cutler.

As expected, Cutler had full downfield trust in the guy he has called his faster Alshon Jeffery, new go-to wideout DeVante Parker (four receptions, 85 yards). While he lived a little dangerously with his deep shots to Parker over coverage, Cutler also channeled in his inner Ryan Tannehill by feeding Jarvis Landry (13 receptions, 78 yards) for plenty of easy pitches and catches.

Cutler was not the best Jay on the field Sunday for the Dolphins, and as long as running back Jay Ajayi is healthy, he won’t be. Ajayi pounded out 122 rushing yards on 28 carries, facilitating everything Cutler did and allowing his QB to work on a worn-down Chargers defense late in the game.

Jameis Winston didn’t need to do much after finding Mike Evans for six, as the running game and defense took over nicely for the Bucs. That’s a terrific delayed start, making us believe Tampa Bay will live up to the Hard Knocks hype.

It’s only one game, but man, Jay Cutler seems like he is a perfect fit for the Fins. With Jay Ajayi powering through and a defense that looked better, a return playoff trip can happen for Adam Gase’s team in a top-loaded AFC.

The offense can get nothing going without Odell Beckham Jr. The star wide receiver missed the Cowboys game with an ankle injury that also limited his snaps against Detroit.
The defense is still staunch with safety Landon Collins, defensive tackle Snacks Harrison, and ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon playing at a high level.

On Thursday, for example, receiver Dez Bryant stood on a cameraman’s ladder, holding court as he acted like a character from Game of Thrones.

Running back Ezekiel Elliott deflected the latest controversy, which centered on whether he quit on a play in a loss at Denver.

Smith was nowhere to be found in the locker room. But he was coerced into doing a group interview on Saturday.

Everything I’ve done has been a part of the plan, you know what I mean? Smith said. The rehab, the training prior to getting back out on the field in OTAs, camp, all of that stuff is tougher than going out playing, quite frankly. We work pretty hard, very hard, so the game is all about going out there and having fun.

We’ve been playing the game since we were 7 years old, so that’s kind of the joy and the relief to be able to go out there and play. For me, I love performing at a high level, so that’s what I’ll continue to do.
