Game Womens Tim Wright Jersey Former St. Louis Rams and Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson finally gets another shot at playoffs. The veteran free agent has signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
Jackson confirmed the news Monday when he tweeted “I’m back.” The Patriots officially announced the signing on Tuesday.
The Saints had a scare when Brees limped off the field after taking a sack. Brees spent time on the trainers’ table getting his foot taped up, but he returned on the Saints’ next drive without missing a snap. Meanwhile, Tate scored his second touchdown of the night to put the Lions up by 18 points.
Brees engineered a two-minute drill near the end of the second quarter and hit Brandin Cooks for a perfect pass and catch near the goal line. However, the Saints failed to score due to a bizarre series of plays. Tim Hightower punched it into the end zone on second down, but it got called back by an illegal formation. The Saints went for it on fourth down with three seconds left in the half, but that play got blown dead when Jim Caldwell tried calling a timeout even though he had none left. Finally, Brees hit a receiver for a supposed touchdown, but it got nullified by an ineligible lineman downfield. After all that, the Lions went into halftime with a 21-3 lead.
Kids Chuck Foreman Jersey The Lions scored on their first drive of the third quarter, making things look way too easy against the Saints’ defense. Ameer Abdullah ran in 15 yards untouched to make it 28-3 Lions. The rout was on. New Orleans finally found the end zone late in the third quarter with a 27-yard touchdown by Cooks. He also became just the fourth quarterback in history to reach 60,000 career passing yards.
