Week 4: Bold and Bizarre Predictions for Sunday Night Football
#1
Steelers vs. Ravens Black Jon Bostic Jersey ,  The Steelers finally won their initial contest of the 2018 season last week, but the defense nearly surrendered a 20-point lead and the game. Steelers Nation is led to wonder whether the take of two halves will carry over into a crucial rivalry matchup with the Ravens.With this storyline and more, I’ve compiled a list of predictions (some basic, and some utterly idiotic) to look for in the Week-4 contest:The NBC pregame is rife with vignettes of Mike Tomlin and Ben Roethlisberger celebrating how awesome Terrell Suggs is. In turn, footage is shown of T-Sizzle yelling uncontrollably and babbling incoherently.James Conner has his best game since Week 1 with a performance of 140 total yards from scrimmage.Meanwhile Le’Veon Bell jet skis the confluence of the Three Rivers and debuts his latest rap single, “The Real Renegade” at Stage AE.With today being exactly ten years to the day after the infamous “bounty game”, Suggs promises money to any of his teammates who blindside a server at Hines Ward’s Tavern 86.In homage to the infamous Kris Brown (not the sadistic hip-hop artist), a Merry Chris-Miss sign is seen in Heinz Field. Chris Boswell doesn’t justify the fan art with a perfect night kicking.However the mention of berries or anything Jordan (whether it be Michael, the country or almonds) gets booed at Heinz Field.James Harrison shows up outside of section 119 to the Pittsburgh Pierogie House and suggests to the manager that they “fake it” with his mock Pierogie recipe.In a rebound of last week’s open door policy Youth Le'Veon Bell Jersey , Alejandro Villanueva locks down his quarterback’s blind side allowing Ben Roethlisberger to throw for 350-plus.JuJu Smith-Schuster, on the 40th anniversary of Edgar Bergen’s death in 1978, does a TD celebration in tribute to the famed ventriloquist complete with his new friend JuJu Junior.Although I sincerely hope I’m wrong, Flacco gets the ball after the 2-minute warning and gets them close enough for Justin Tucker to hit from 54.Final score: Ravens 29 - Steelers 26....Will any of this actually happen? I’ll bet at least one or two. Heck, maybe every one of them. Be sure to post your predictions — basic or bizarre — below. When new Panthers owner David Tepper signed former Pro Bowl safety and social activist Eric Reid it was another clear sign to players that times are changing in Carolina under his leadership.Tepper is showing the players in his locker room that he's eager to listen 鈥?and get involved 鈥?when it comes to social and racial injustice.Tepper supported the players' protests and this week he accompanied Carolina players Torrey Smith and J.J. Jansen on a "listen and learn" tour in Charlotte with law enforcement, public defenders and social justice advocates. The group discussed solutions to what the Players Coalition said are "systemic issues that lead to racially and ethnically disparate over-incarceration" in North Carolina.The agenda topics included bail reform, racial disparity regarding policing, segregation and the lack of educational resources for youth in low-income communities of color."He's a person that really cares about the community," said Smith Youth Cameron Heyward Jersey , a Panthers wide receiver and member of the Players Coalition. "It's not just about the flawed criminal justice system, it is about need in general. And he's all over it. He's very well educated in that field, and he cares a lot. I believe he is the perfect owner for this city and the challenges it has."Smith's comments seem to represent a 180-degree change in how the players view ownership 鈥?and it's only been three months since the 61-year-old hedge fund founder purchased the team.The Panthers previous owner and team founder Jerry Richardson erred on a more conservative side."They just signed Eric Reid," said former Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams. "There's no way ... the (previous) owner was going to touch Eric Reid."Players also no longer seem to have a fear of retaliation if they express themselves.In September of 2017, while Colin Kaepernick, Reid and others around the league were protesting racial and social injustices, players on the Carolina sideline all stood. The closest thing there was to a protest was by Julius Peppers, who remained in the tunnel for one game while the national anthem played.Some players say they were concerned about being punished 鈥?or cut 鈥?by Richardson if they protested.Panthers safety Eric Ball had once raised his hand and one finger after a black man was shot in Charlotte by police officers in 2016. He was cut from the roster a few days later.The frustration among the players prompted a meeting between Richardson and the team's captains about their stances on protesting racial and social injustice. While quarterback Cam Newton later said at the time the meeting "productive," no players protested on the sideline the following week.That could change Sunday when the Panthers host the New York Giants.Reid hasn't decided if he'll kneel or not http://www.authenticspittsburghsteelers....ams-jersey , saying that he's "still evaluating the scope of our country" and that he would make that decision later.Based on his previous actions, Tepper 鈥?who was not made available for comment through requests made to the Panthers 鈥?likely would have no problem if Reid takes a knee.Tepper recently defended NFL players in an interview with CNBC in September, saying the protests are about "justice for all." He also it makes him aggravated when people call players unpatriotic for protesting, saying "it's just wrong, it's dead wrong."Newton said Wednesday that Tepper has been "everything that we could have asked for and more" as an owner.Jansen, the team's long snapper, likes what he's seen too."It's very empowering for the players that the issues that we are interested in, he's interested in them, too Black Javon Hargrave Jersey ," said Jansen, the team's long snapper. "That's not to say that he will agree with every player on every issue, but the fact that he finds them to be important issues to learn about is important."Smith believes this is just the beginning."This city will be better because of Tepper being the owner," Smith said.AP Motorsports Writer Jenna Fryer contributed to this report.
