Stefon Diggs is certainly enjoying being the catalyst behind the “Minneapolis Miracle.”

The wide receiver’s incredible, game-winning catch in the Vikings’ divisional playoff victory over the Saints last month will go down as one of the best moments not just in franchise history, but in NFL playoff history.

Judging by the standing ovation Diggs received a few days ago at a Timberwolves game, Minnesotans won’t stop loving him anytime soon.

Diggs spoke to Sporting News last week during a promotional event for Delta Air Lines, the official airline of the Vikings and U.S. Bank Stadium. He touched on a number of topics, namely that catch, after which, he says, his phone blew up with “over 400 text messages.”

On his first instinct when he made the catch: “My initial thought was to get out of bounds, that’s why I turned and tried to get my arms and stay up. I was trying to do the smart thing.

“I’m not in the front office or anything like that. So I don’t concern myself with that.”

On his personal favorite clutch playoff moment: “I don’t know, I think the ball against the helmet is one of the biggest ones. Santonio Holmes had a great catch with the toe-touch in the back of the end zone, if I’m not mistaken. I like that play a lot.”

The deal, which was first reported by NBC Sports Bay Area, is the biggest in NFL history on an average-per-year basis at $27.5 million per year.

Garoppolo, 26, was acquired in October from the Patriots for a 2018 second-round pick. He was in the final year of his rookie deal and set to become a free agent this spring, but now San Francisco’s hope of making him the team’s next franchise quarterback has become a reality.

He completed 67.4 percent of his passes for 1,560 yards and seven touchdowns with five interceptions in six games last season. The 49ers finished last in the NFC West with a 6-10 record but went 5-0 in Garroppolo’s starts.

“It’s very impressive what they’ve done, continue to accomplish,” Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told Omnisport. “They get guys to buy into what they’re doing, get them to fall in line, and they win. That’s what they do. It’s impressive to watch because you know how difficult it is to get there.”

It also misses that Foles was 6-2 the next season, suffering a season-ending broken collarbone in Week 8.

Authentic Chris Tierney Jersey But to call Foles a backup-quality quarterback misses a few key points. Such as: In 2013 with the Eagles, he went 8-2 and threw 27 touchdown passes and just two interceptions. Yes, the Eagles lost their first playoff game that year at home to the Saints, but when Foles walked off the field for the last time, it was with 4:58 to go after his 3-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz had given Philadelphia a 24-23 lead. A long kick return and a horse-collar tackle set the Saints up at the Eagles 48, and Drew Brees masterfully milked the clock to set up the winning field goal with no time left.

And that this season, he’s become the only quarterback not named Joe Montana to complete 75 percent of his passes in back-to-back playoff games. Lastly, his skill on the run-pass option play does a couple of things: It piggybacks onto some of the things Blake Bortles and the Jaguars did well in the first half against the Patriots defense and mitigates some of the Belichick/Patricia coaching advantage because the Hoodie and the Beard will be of no help when Foles is making that read and attacking the open spaces.

Add in Marshall, who has tallied 12,061 receiving yards and 82 touchdowns, and the offense should produce more than the 19.4 points per game last season, which ranked 26th in the league.

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles and running back Leonard Fournette led the Jags to a 14-3 lead in the second quarter.

Bortles finished the game 23-for-36 passing with 293 yards and a touchdown. Fournette finished with 76 yards on 24 carries and one touchdown.

Bortles failed to complete what would have been a comeback drive with two minutes left. His pass on fourth-and-14 from the Patriots’ 40 was batted away by Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore. The Patriots took over on first down, and James White rushed for a first down to seal the win.

Rob Gronkowski left the game during the second quarter after a hit to his head sent him through concussion protocol. Gronkowski was declared out for the rest of the game.

SN provided live updates from the Patriots’ win over the Jaguars in the AFC championship game. Here’s how it went down.

Dom Capers’ guys would prevail. But Carolina could not sustain that momentum going forward, not even sniffing the postseason for years to come. Tom Coughlin’s Jacksonville team, meanwhile, lost to the Patriots but made the playoffs in 1997, ’98 and ’99, when the Jags went back to the AFC title game.

The ’67 Raiders were talented (they boasted 16 All-Pro players and five future Hall of Fame inductees) but they were no match for the defending champion Packers in Super Bowl II. They were soundly defeated, 33-14.

The 1969 Vikings had one of the most fearsome defenses in league history, led by the “Purple People Eaters” on the defensive line. Minnesota boasted 10 All-Pro players and a bevy of future Hall of Fame inductees, but still lost 23-7 to the 11-3 Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV.

Rodgers heard about it in the responses, with one fan writing, “You’re biting the hand that feeds you” and another reminding him that “people are going for the sole purpose of the entertainment of watching a football game. They are not going to see you lock hands with your teammates.”

Sunday’s win over the Dolphins was routine and the Patriots are in a very good groove now.

New coach Willie Taggart had to salvage the 2018 recruiting class as soon as he arrived in Tallahassee, and he did a good job of making sure the Seminoles bulked up at defensive back, where they signed four of their top players, including Asante Samuel Jr., A.J. Lytton and Isaiah Bolden. Several other top cornerbacks remain on the priority list for the February signing date. But the Seminoles are also making a push for more receivers. They lost Auden Tate and are thin overall at the position. They signed only one receiver in December. — Adelson

The Eagles’ last three wins have come by 28 points each. They haven’t had a single-digit margin of victory since a five-point triumph at Carolina on Oct. 12.

Youth Nathan Peterman Jersey The owners’ competition committee appeared to iron out any wrinkles during a conference call Wednesday regarding Goodell’s pending five-contract extension. The deal, which would run through 2024, is expected to be completed, according to a person familiar with the league’s inner workings.

That person said the deal never was in jeopardy despite the reported efforts by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to influence the decision.

In the weeks and months leading into the 2017 NFL draft, New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton watched several running backs work out in person.

He separated them into tiers, ranking them in order of preference. He inspected a small, jitterbug-quick back from North Carolina A&T, Tarik Cohen, and came away wanting to draft him. Just above Cohen, though, was another back Payton studied in a private workout. When the draft came and rolled into the third round, Payton seized the chance to trade up, into the 67th overall pick, and draft Alvin Kamara.

The Patriots punched their ticket to the NFL’s biggest game by pulling off an improbable 24-20 win over Jacksonville.

A year after we saw three general managers fired after the draft, and a week after we saw Mularkey fired despite a playoff win, would it really be all that crazy by current standards to see a 1-31 coach let go at some point prior to the start of the ensuing season? I suspect it won’t happen, but then again, in this league and with this franchise in particular, you never know.

Of course, improbable is basically Tom Brady’s middle name at this point, so maybe we shouldn’t have been surprised by what he pulled off against the Jaguars.

With the season on the line last week against the Saints, quarterback Case Keenum looked Rudolph’s way eight times. Rudolph looked to be closer to his midseason form where he scored five touchdowns in a four-week span before injuries slowed him down later in the year.

He’s a top red-zone target, scoring eight touchdowns this year, so he has sizable upside on Sunday against a Philadelphia defense that is tough, Authentic Nate Thurmond Jersey but is ranked in the middle-of-the-pack in the NFL against the pass and gave up over 100 yards of receiving to Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce earlier this year.

They even had me do some Australian rules, end-over-end punts because that looks different from lefties, too. It’s just about getting them comfortable back there.
Elite Youth Travis Kelce Jersey
For Miller, it’s essentially a token interview. Little chance of getting the job. The incumbent punters haven’t been injured, he’s never been signed. Except sometimes it works, as it did in 2016 when the 49ers signed him to a futures deal after working him out earlier in the season same thing happened to Giants punter Brad Wing, for instance.

Hopefully someone pulls the trigger after the season wraps up, Miller said.

Miller hasn’t kicked in an NFL game. He still hopes to, says he’s improving and notes the phone is still ringing. What started when the Rams and special teams coach John Fassel brought him in for a workout several years ago to prepare for a left-handed punter is still going.

James Harrison key to containing ‘monster’ Leonard Fournette

There are two main things the Patriots have to worry about in Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the Jaguars. First, they have to deal with the Jaguars’ ability to generate a pass rush without blitzing, and second, they must contain the running game led by rookie Leonard Fournette.

This is where Harrison comes in. While he is valuable as a veteran presence in the locker room, he is more than just a mentor for younger players. Harrison is a valuable run-stuffer as he sets the edge well and gets stops by getting penetration from the outside.

Since coming over to New England, the former Steelers star has played in two games while participating on 57 of 126 snaps. In those two games the Patriots held the Jets to 40 rushing yards in Week 17 and the Titans to 65 in the divisional round.

Brady isn’t talking about it, Bill Belichick certainly isn’t talking about, so we’ll just have to wait until Sunday’s game to see how or if the injury plays a role in the AFC Championship.

Thomas got her 103rd victory as a Seminole on Sunday, and this one was unexpected. The Cardinals came in 20-0 and were at home, where 10 days earlier they clobbered Notre Dame 100-67.

And Louisville opened well, leading Florida State 22-9 after the first quarter. But after that, it was all defense, and the Seminoles got the better of the Cardinals. Thomas finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds as Florida State won the board battle 52-42.

Newton said he has been treated unfairly and hit illegally too often, even if leaked reports from the NFL show numbers that indicate otherwise.

In terms of cap hits, Bortles’ $19.1 million is exactly 15th among all quarterbacks, just behind Ryan Tannehill and a head of Tyrod Taylor and Andy Dalton. Worth noting: Tannehill led the Dolphins to the playoffs in 2016 (before he suffered a season-ending injury in December), and Taylor did the same with the Bills this season. And Dalton took the Bengals to five straight playoff appearances in his first five seasons, though in the spirit of mediocrity never won in the postseason.

It is pretty awesome, the quarterback said. To spend two years or whatever as a quarterback coach and then for him to take over as the offensive coordinator, that relationship only continues to grow each and every day. He has been awesome to me. I love coming into work each and every day. Me and him, along with some other guys, kind of collaborate on different things. It is a lot of fun working with him.

Limited Jersey Just as important: Bortles has the full support of his teammates, which has to be a consideration when discussing his future.

The suspension is Adrian Phillips Jersey for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy.

The NFL is clearly worried about the former first-round pick and said as much earlier this week. The public display of not giving a single care in the world has been pretty blatant — Manziel traveled to Cabo in a Josh Gordon Browns jersey and is claiming to go completely sober on Friday, July 1 before beginning a comeback to the NFL.

Needless to say, the suspension creates another major roadblock for Manziel.

Even if a team was willing to take a chance on him — and it’s really unlikely any franchise would do so for the 2016 season — Manziel would be unavailable for the first four games. Again: no team was signing him for 2016 and certainly not starting him for 2016, but a four-game suspension is another major red flag in an offseason stuffed full of them.
