Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey
#1
NEW YORK (AP) — ESPN’s equipment trucks already were headed for Mexico when the network found out next Monday night’s mega-matchup between the Chiefs and Rams was being switched to Los Angeles.And the scramble was on.Those trucks had been dispatched from Santa Clara Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey , California, and were making their way through Arizona — ESPN already had a catering truck on site in Mexico City — when the NFL, citing the poor condition of the field at Azteca Stadium, switched the game to the LA Coliseum. So, under the most unusual of circumstances, “Monday Night Football” returns to Los Angeles for the first time in 33 years.“We are disappointed that we are not going to be in Mexico City,” Jay Rothman, the “Monday Night Football” producer, said Wednesday. “We were really excited about the game when the schedule came out, we had it two years ago, we wanted it last year with New England and didn’t get it, and this year we got it back.“We understand the circumstance and just had to adjust. As difficult as the logistics are for both teams … the same holds true for our crew. We had 150 people mobilizing.“Our fleet of trucks left Santa Clara and were to be at the Mexican border this morning. It turned into a scramble mode for much of our team.“Now, ‘Monday Night Football’ returns to LA for the first time since 1985, and we are excited about that.”ESPN was not consulted by the league about changing the locale of the game White Robert Woods Jersey , but was notified by the NFL that it was a possibility. While that doesn’t lessen the work involved for a network expecting to televise a game from one time zone and then discovering the site will be two times zones away — in another country — it did help ESPN’s planning.“We were not part of the decision other than they did — which we really appreciated — they gave us some notice of the potential issues some days ago,” said Burke Magnus, ESPN’s executive vice president of programming and scheduling. “The logistics change here is not insignificant, but we appreciate that the NFL made us aware of the possibility several days ago.”Asked if pushing the game back a week — both teams have byes following the Monday nighter — was broached, Magnus said the network was not “made aware of anything other than a venue switch.”Rothman noted that having Southern Cal playing its annual rivalry game with UCLA at the Rose Bowl this year makes the switch a bit easier.“We are a traveling circus, with six mobile units, so certainly it helps that USC is in the Rose Bowl on Saturday and not at home,” Rothman said. “It helps us in terms of setup.”These have been strange days for ESPN, he added.“It’s crazy that the last two games, what we had in San Francisco with the air quality in the Bay Area, and any talk of moving that game,” Rothman said.“Needing to get our trucks to Mexico. That was a stressful week there, not knowing how the air quality would be. A lot that’s been going on over the last week.” The Arizona Cardinals can't run the football. The Denver Broncos can't stop the run.So maybe the ground game will be the deciding factor when these two struggling teams meet on Thursday night."I'll tell you this - and I'm a firm believer in this - stopping the run and running the football allows a team to control the game depending on who is doing that the best," Broncos coach Vance Joseph said.Arizona (1-5) ranks dead last in the NFL in total offense and in rushing Youth Rob Havenstein Jersey , averaging 64 yards per game on the ground. Denver (2-4) is last in rushing defense, allowing a whopping 161.3 yards per game."We need to do a much better job up front as far as blocking, executing our assignments," Cardinals coach Steve Wilks, then referring to running back David Johnson: "We need to move him around a little bit more. Try to find ways to get him out into space, different things right here to try to open it up some."Denver has allowed 593 yards rushing in its last two games. Two of the opposing running backs, the New York Jets' Isaiah Crowell and the Los Angeles Rams' Todd Gurley, topped 200 yards rushing, something that's never happened against the same team in NFL history."We've had really two bad weeks, and it's really with our nickel defense," Joseph said. "We have to fix that and obviously play in more fronts and fix it that way."The Cardinals aren't good against the run, either. They rank 31st in the NFL, just ahead of Denver, giving up 151.2 yards per game. That could clear the way for the Broncos' rookie running back tandem of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman Youth Austin Blythe Jersey , who have a combined four touchdowns and average 5.19 yards per carry.But Denver has relied more on the passing of Case Keenum than in the running game in recent weeks.The Cardinals will be without safety Tre Boston, who leads the team with three interceptions. He didn't practice this week with shoulder and rib injuries.The Broncos have lost four straight, the latest a close home loss to the undefeated Rams. Arizona has beaten Denver only once in the 10-game history of the series.Here are some things to consider when the Broncos face the Cardinals:BEAT-UP LINESBoth teams are beaten up on the offensive line.The Broncos lost their best lineman, left guard Ronald Leary, to a torn Achilles tendon against the Rams."You guys already know how good he is and what he brings to this team, and everyone in this locker room knows how important he is to our organization," tackle Garett Bolles said. "Having someone like that go down is a tough situation and puts us in a tight spot."Denver right tackle Jared Veldheer 鈥?a former Cardinal 鈥?will miss the game with a knee injury.Arizona left guard Mike Iupati is sidelined with a back injury that knocked him out of Sunday's loss at Minnesota. Right guard Justin Pugh has his injured right hand in a cast-like wrap and plans to try to play Thursday.MIFFED MILLERVon Miller repeatedly promised that the Broncos would whoop the Cardinals. "I wouldn't say it's a must win," Miller said. "We're going to kick their (behind), though. Make sure you put that up there. We're going to kick their (behind)."Miller and rookie Bradley Chubb had 4陆 sacks between them last week, but Miller insisted they hadn't unlocked some sort of pass rush puzzle."No, we just got on the board," Miller said. "And if we're playing our best, I don't think there's anybody in the league that can block me and Bradley. ... Especially not the Cardinals. They're going to get our best on Thursday. They got to come with their best."UP-TEMPOThe Cardinals' offense, under rookie quarterback Josh Rosen White Ndamukong Suh Jersey , showed some signs of life with an up-tempo game late against the Vikings. Expect to see more of it against Denver."It was very effective for us. It's something that we've got to definitely consider," Wilks said. "It's part of his comfort zone, based off college and the things he did back there. We've got to do everything we can right now to get this offense going in the right direction."ELWAY'S CRITICISMBroncos general manager John Elway reprised his "soft" criticism he also used last year when discussing Denver's run defense this week.Elway suggested the Broncos must realize that "we're fighting for our lives" Thursday night.Asked if he interpreted that as fighting for his job, Joseph said, "Absolutely. And that's every coach in this league every week. If you don't feel that way, you're missing something. If we were 5-1, I would feel that way. That doesn't motivate me. I'm already motivated to win games and to fix our football team."MCCOY'S HEATFor the second year in a row, Mike McCoy is feeling heat as an offensive coordinator.McCoy was fired by Joseph after 10 games with the Broncos last season. Now he's facing severe criticism as offensive coordinator of the Cardinals."We're preparing like any other week," McCoy said. "Our objective every week is to go out and win the next game that you're playing. That's our focus."AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton contributed to this report.
