Osinuga: “Yeah, but, I don’t think he meant to lead with his head.”

As Osingua and his friends, Adolphus Calle and Kam Stubbs, pick at tailgate fare on a paper plate covered by aluminum foil in the trunk of their car, they circle the debate around football’s battle on the player safety front.

“I mean, everyone is more conscious of what happens to the body and I think people are trying to be more aware of the damage that can be done to the head. But it’s football, man, you know what you’re into,” Stubbs says. “You want to [put it all out there] because you come to win. Unfortunately, they’re not out there just playing to play. They’re playing to win and that passion sometimes, that raw emotion gets mixed and it becomes that gladiator sport.”

Calle: “My argument is rugby. Rugby is almost a similar game with no pads and no helmets. They know how to tackle, basically just like Juju [Smith-Schuster on the Vontaze Burfict hit]. But these guys, when they get their helmets on, they just go straight for the kill.”

Stubbs: “I think he did . . . I played sports and in the moment . . . when my team is down, I’m trying to make that play. Brother, I don’t give a f— what the rules are. I’m trying to get my team to rally around me. I’m gonna smash the s—- out of you. I’m going to try and hurt you.”

The only question that remains for the Browns: Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold or Josh Allen?

Kizer has the arm and athleticism to become something special at some point down the line, but Jackson hasn’t showed the required patience to actually develop him. Jackson’s lack of faith in Kizer has been disturbing to the point of forcing him into regression.

Regardless if Jackson remains the coach, the Browns should have plenty of evidence to know they need a more polished, pro-style prospect. They’ve proved incapable of finding the next Dak Prescott or Russell Wilson, whether it’s been Kizer or Cody Kessler on Day 2 or Johnny Manziel late in Day 1. So the next QB must come high in Round 1, a la Wentz, Trubisky or Jared Goff.

Rosen said he’d rather stay one more season at UCLA than be drafted by the Browns. Darnold, after a shaky season at USC, doesn’t inspire much confidence as a top option. Allen capped his career at Wyoming already with a perfect audition for scouts in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Allen looks most like what they would have gotten in Wentz: a big, strong, mobile gunslinger who was unheralded out west vs. Pac-12 brethren — a la Wentz vs. Goff. Allen is used to playing in some tricky weather and is mentally and physically tough. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he’s already used to wearing brown.

A mix of younger players and veterans is working quite nicely for the streaking Minnesota Timberwolves.

Jimmy Butler scored 28 points and Minnesota started fast and held off the struggling Los Angeles Lakers 114-96 on Monday night.

Karl-Anthony Towns recorded his 30th double-double of the season with 16 points and 13 rebounds to help Minnesota win for the seventh time in eight games and 10th in 13.

It’s been awhile since the diva title was thrown around in the NFL but when it is, it’s usually applied to playmaking wide receivers above all others.However, the Kings would the playoffs, meaning they had forfeited a large part of their future for a mere 16 from a top-four defenceman.

Leonard, widely viewed as one of the NBA’s best all-around players, missed the first 27 games with a quadriceps injury. The Spurs nonetheless survived his absence, in part because of the strong play of veteran forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who poured in 29 points Tuesday and leads the team with averages of 22 points and 8.4 rebounds a game.

Tuesday’s victory, San Antonio’s fourth in five games and seventh in nine, was also the 1,176th in the career of coach Gregg Popovich, giving him sole possession of fifth place on the NBA’s all-time list. Popovich, whose .694 winning percentage is fourth-best among coaches with at least 250 games, broke a tie with George Karl.

The 6-1, 305-pound Casey became a pescetarian this year and cut all meat out of his diet.

“Auburn is a great team,” Frost said. “I’m not taking anything away from them. I give them a ton of credit. But these guys deserve everything they get, and they deserve more credit from the committee than what they got.”

UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton, who combined for more than 350 yards and three touchdowns against Auburn, said, “You can go ahead and cancel the playoffs; I’m not changing my mind.”

Casey said the change invigorated him during a season in which he spearheaded Tennessee’s fourth-ranked run defense (88.8 yards a game) and logged six sacks, which ranks among the league leaders for interior defensive linemen playing in base 3-4 schemes.

There are eight new teams in this year’s playoff field — Eagles, Vikings, Rams, Saints and Panthers in the NFC, and Jaguars, Titans and Bills in the AFC. That’s tied for the most in a season (2003) since the 12-team playoff format was adopted in 1990. Since 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the playoffs in every season that were not in the postseason the year before.

The Eagles and Jaguars both completed “worst-to-first” turnarounds this season in their respective divisions. Five of the eight division winners (Eagles, Vikings, Rams, Saints and Jaguars) finished in either third or fourth place in their divisions last year.

Devin McCourty was a 2010 draft pick of the Patriots, but remembered those 2009 reports and realized Belichick will never give someone a pass for being late.

“I knew not to come late,” McCourty said Wednesday. “I found a couple nice places that are about 15 or 20 minutes away my rookie year and I was like ‘Nah, I’ll do the three minutes away.’ I think guys know that. You see it. You see that around the league when you’re in college. Your season is usually over by now except for a couple teams so you’re following that. Everyone follows the NFL when you play in college so guys know. You know here is the one place where no matter what time of the year it is, if it’s not going well you’ll get fired. Like I always say, the goal every day is not to get fired. So guys know that.

Snowed under: Colts-Bills total dings Vegas books

The point spread and over/under on Sunday’s Indianapolis Colts-Buffalo Bills game didn’t start showing up on Las Vegas oddsboards until Saturday night.

By 9 a.m. Sunday, the forecast had worsened. Salmons opened Twitter and saw reports from New Era Field of blinding snow.

“People were saying they couldn’t see the other end of the field,” Salmons said.

The Colts-Bills total closed at around 36 at most sportsbooks, the lowest for any game this season, according to sports betting database BetLabSports.com.

Despite the low total, bets on the over were few and far between. At William Hill’s Nevada sportsbook, 95 percent of the money bet on the Colts-Bills total was on the under. The Bills won 13-7 in overtime.

Oddsmakers at MGM debated on what number to post on the over/under for the second half. They ended up going with 14 — and they still took all under money.

“What are you supposed to put up when they’re playing in eight inches of snow?” MGM vice preside Jay Rood said. “That was our worst game of the morning.”

“There are things guys have been working on and talking with the league about how we can amplify the voices of the players to draw attention to the injustices and issues of equality that we’re trying to highlight — help us with solutions and try to make our communities better,” Jenkins said following the Eagles’ win over the Panthers on Oct. 12. “So, if that gets accomplished, we can move on.”

The kids come and kiss me before naptime as Tom Brady hits Gronk on a 3rd and 7. The Pats are already up 7-0 after running a fake punt on 4th and 9 deep in their own territory, and they soon double their lead with a TD to Gronk. I’m fine calling this one over.canadiens_1255_b8a071e2ee439b68-140x140

DeMar DeRozan leads Raptors to 6th straight win

Dwane Casey’s 500th career game as Toronto’s coach had plenty of moments to go sideways, especially after his team let a 15-point lead slip away in the first half.

Alshon Jeffery, working out of the slot in the red zone, puts Eagles up 24-0 with five seconds left in the half. The score, his seventh of the season, triggers a $250,000 performance clause in Jeffery’s contract, as well as an extremely good celebration.

Silfverberg roofed a wrist shot with 35 seconds left in the second period, capitalizing on a clear path to the net when Carolina defenseman Haydn Fleury fell down.

“It’s a game of mistakes, we all say,” Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk said. “It gets tough when we’re in a little bit of a tough stretch right now. Every mistake weighs on you a little bit more. You think about it more. You end up gripping your stick a little tighter, trying to bear down and make those plays.”

The Hawks have beaten Cleveland three of the last four games dating to last season, and Lue said Schroder is a major reason why.

“I think Schroder, he’s improved his jump shot, he’s shooting the three a lot better, the pull-up jumper a lot better so you can’t really go under as much because he can make that shot,” Lue said. “His speed and quickness, you try to switch one through four and it’s a mismatch. With the fives you try to blitz and they’ve got guys rolling to the basket that will finish at the rim.

“Then they’ve got shooters all around him, (Kent) Bazemore and (Luke) Babbit, those guys can make shots but also put the ball on the floor. When you have four or five guys on the floor that can shoot but also put the ball on the floor, it makes it tough.”canadiens_453_7a488c0f2065f9ea-168x168

New Net Jahlil Okafor ready for fresh start

Jahlil Okafor finally got the fresh start he wanted.

“It just never really was the right fit.”

The Smiths didn’t take the threat seriously.

“If someone was going to kill me, they ain’t going to call me and tell me,” Smith Jr. said.

Tyrod Taylor, a two-time Pro Bowler who has been a solidly average passer in Buffalo, appears to be headed toward his release. If Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t re-sign (or get franchise tagged) with the 49ers, he’ll be available. So will a rejuvenated Blaine Gabbert, whether you believe in him or not. And as tough as it may be to imagine him anywhere else, Drew Brees’ contract with the Saints ends this winter.

NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan wrote separate letters to Talib and Crabtree, berating the latter for also punching Broncos cornerback Chris Harris.

“Your actions triggered a melee and endangered various sideline and League personnel, including one of our game officials who was injured trying to maintain control of the situation,” Runyan told Crabtree. “Finally, during the ensuing altercation, you grabbed and twisted that same opponent’s facemask and threw a punch at him.

“Such actions have no place in this game, engender ill will between teams, and lead to further confrontations.”

Runyan scolded Talib for tossing Crabtree helmet toward the sideline, possibly endangering others. He also cited Talib as the instigator for ripping off a chain for Crabtree’s neck for the second straight year.

NFL scores: Week 14 results, highlights

Entering Week 14, seven teams had chances to clinch permanent spots in the 2017 NFL playoff picture. After the Falcons’ win over the Saints on Thursday night, that number was down to five for Sunday and Monday games. The Rams could not clinch a postseason berth Sunday thanks to the Saints’ loss, which also means New Orleans must wait at least one more week.

So far in his career, Ngakoue has started all but his first game in the NFL. In those 25 starts he has already amassed 17 sacks. That is, eight sacks as a rookie last season and nine sacks through 10 games this season. Those nine sacks are good for sixth in the league, ahead of guys like Melvin Ingram, Jadeveon Clowney and Von Miller. Of course, sacks are not the only barometer for good defensive linemen, but, let me tell you buddy, they are always good to have. Ngakoue is also leading the league in forced fumbles with five.

Harrell ran off the Clippers’ first nine points of the second quarter, cutting their deficit from 13 points to four. He scored 13 in the period, and the Clippers trailed 53-51 at halftime.

Giancarlo Stanton has ruled out the San Francisco Giants. The St. Louis Cardinals, too.

The Giants announced Friday they were no longer in the mix to work out a trade for the Marlins slugger and National League MVP after having reached the parameters of a deal with new Miami CEO Derek Jeter and his team.

“Our agreement with the Marlins to acquire Giancarlo Stanton subject to his waiving of the no-trade clause will not move forward and it is our understanding that the Marlins and Stanton are exploring other options,” the team said in a release.mariners_753

Atlanta shot 51.2 percent in the game, and tied a season high with 17 made 3-pointers on 33 attempts.

“When you’re going out to buy the Ferrari, why buy one with 2,000 miles on it rather than one with two or three seasons’ less stress on it?” Boras said.

The big separator in Boras’ pitch to owners is Arrieta’s postseason track record. Over the past three seasons, Arrieta is 5-3 with a 3.08 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 52? postseason innings with the Cubs.

Al Horford scored 15 for Boston (23-6). Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier added 13 points apiece in the Celtics’ most lopsided loss of the season.

“Sometimes you get your butt kicked. It was simple as that,” coach Brad Stevens said. “Chicago dictated the whole game. They played harder than we did. They played with more presence than we did. They played more competitive than we did. They played with more authority than we did. You’re not going to win many games when you play like that.”

Bazemore (19 points) made three 3-pointers, and point guard Dennis Schroeder added 18 points with seven assists.

“The kids deserved some continuity and stability in general,” Anderson said in regard to Harsin, Malzahn and Freeze having a short stay at Arkansas State. “We believe in what we’re doing here, and the job’s not done yet.”

Arkansas State senior defensive end Ja’Von Rolland-Jones repeated as the Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, while junior quarterback Justice Hansen was named the Offensive Player of the Year.

Colts laud ‘tough as nails’ Jacoby Brissett for taking on NFL-high 47 sacks

Despite being flattened week after week by huge NFL linebackers, Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett has remained optimistic.

After an impressive win over the playoff-bound Chiefs, the Giants took advantage of the depleted Redskins’ offensive line, totaling six sacks which Kirk Cousins admitted after the game were in part due to quality coverage in the secondary. After putting up 61 points the past two games, Washington was held to 323 total yards, the majority of which came late in the game. With Eli Manning struggling without his wideout weapons, it was actually the Giants defense that provided their lone touchdown of the game — a Jenoris Jenkins 53-yard pick-six.

Bortles said he believed Seattle’s actions stemmed partly from the Seahawks’ frustration of losing, and “people aren’t used to getting beat like that by the Jaguars.”

The situation got even harrier when a fan tossed a water bottle at Jefferson as he was leaving the field. Jefferson took off his helmet and approached the stands looking for the perpetrator. When another beverage was thrown at him, Jefferson tried climbing a railing into the crowd to retaliate before being pulled back and restrained by security.

“I can’t commit that he’s definitely going to play tomorrow, but he’s definitely moving in the right direction,” Washington coach Scott Brooks told reporters after Monday’s practice.
