Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph has confidence in Bennie Fowler III

Published: Friday, October 20, 2017 @ 12:33 AM

Bennie Fowler III has an excellent opportunity to truly make a name for himself on Sunday afternoon when the Denver Broncos take on the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Broncos will extremely short-handed at wide receiver with Emmanuel Sanders (ankle), Isaiah McKenzie (ankle), and Cody Latimer (knee) already being ruled out for the game against the Chargers. On top of that, two-time All-Pro Demaryius Thomas is dealing with a calf injury that limited his practice availability this week.

Thomas is expected to play on Sunday, but with Sanders out, Fowler will get the start and will serve as Denver’s No. 2 wide receiver. Head coach Vance Joseph is confident the former undrafted free agent can get the job done.

“I think he does,” Joseph said on Thursday when asked if Fowler has the ability to be a legitimate No. 2 wide receiver. “Bennie’s a smart guy, he knows what to do and that’s half the battle as far as being a one or a two. I don’t know what that means, I mean you would know better than I would. He’s a receiver and he’s the next guy up, so he’s the number two. He was the number two last week from time-to-time. That has no relevance as far as who plays. When he’s out there, he’s a one, you can say that also.”

With his increased role, Fowler could be in for a career day on Sunday, which would go a long way in solidifying his place on Denver’s roster going forward.

Oakland Raiders knock off Chiefs after fourth encore on Thursday night

Published: Friday, October 20, 2017 @ 12:13 AM

The Oakland Raiders did not make win that they needed against the Kansas City Chiefs easy on Thursday night.

On a final drive that included a 4th and 11 conversion, the Raiders appeared to have won the game on a 29-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Derek Carr to tight end Jared Cook with 16 seconds remaining, but after review the referees ruled that he was down near the goal line.

The next play was a touchdown pass to wide receiver Michael Crabtree, but that was called back because of offensive pass interference. On the following play the Chiefs appeared to stop the Raiders as the clock expired, but defensive holding was called on safety Ron Parker.

The Raiders got an untimed down for the game, and Carr threw an incomplete pass to wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. However, Chiefs cornerback Eric Murray was called for defensive holding.

That gave the Raiders one more untimed down from the two-yard-line and he completed a pass to Crabtree to tie the game at 30. Kicker Giorgio Tavecchio made the extra point to give his team the 31-30 win.

 

5-star point guard Jahvon Quinerly retracts verbal commitment to Arizona amid FBI probe

Published: Thursday, October 19, 2017 @ 11:56 PM

The FBI’s investigation into college basketball has now caused collateral damage in Tuscon.

Jahvon Quinerly, a 5-star prospect in the class of 2018, has retracted his verbal commitment to Arizona, per an announcement made via his Twitter account on Thursday night.

Though he and his family hadn’t been contacted by the FBI, Quinerly’s family hired a lawyer in the wake of the FBI’s investigation into college basketball and alleged bribery, ESPN’s Jeff Borzello reported on Oct. 7. Quinerly was recruited by Arizona assistant Emanuel Richardson, who was one of four coaches arrested by the FBI as a result of the investigation.

The FBI documents allege a $15,000 bribe to a “Player-5,” who verbally committed to attending” Arizona “on or about August 9, 2017,” per Borzello’s report. Quinerly committed to Arizona on Aug. 8.

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence not focused on contract

Published: Thursday, October 19, 2017 @ 11:38 PM

Dallas Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is having a monster season in the final year of his contract.

Through five games, he’s tallied 9 sacks. It is going to cost the Cowboys some money to re-sign Lawrence, but he is not worried about that at the moment.

“We’ll talk about that when the time comes,” Lawrence said, via the Dallas Morning News’ Brandon George. “I’m just going to keep racking up my numbers, and we’ve just got to get the job done as a team. If the team wins, we all win. That’s the main thing.”

Lawrence’s breakout season was expected to come last year following an 8-sack season in 2015, but it was delayed due to suspension and injury. He only played in nine regular-season games, starting in three. He took the field, but did not start in the Cowboys’ divisional-round game against the Green Bay Packers.

While the Cowboys defense has struggled in 2017,  Lawrence has looked like one of the best defensive players in the NFL. With the return of defensive lineman David Irving from suspension, the Cowboys’ line will be force for the rest of the season.

However, once the offseason arrives, Lawrence is going to become a very wealthy man.
