With the suspension of Mark Ingram, which includes limitations to in-season game-planning and access to training over the first month of the year, the Saints will have to make up plenty of carries, as Ingram (230 attempts) carried the ball nearly twice as much as Kamara did last year. And the Saints don’t have a proven option behind them.
For Kamara, every game in the first month of the season will have to look like his effort against Texas A&M in 2016, by far his standout game at the college level. If workload is going to be an issue for Kamara, it’s going to be apparent in Week 1.
For three years, Ereck Flowers has been a liability in pass protection for the New York Giants. If not for Ben McAdoo and Eli Manning embracing the quick passing game, Flowers would have been exposed even more.
Jenkins is going on his third year as a Jets starting pass-rusher. Frankly, that’s unacceptable. After packing picks to move up to third overall in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts, New York took itself out of the top pass-rushing market in the draft. At the same time, the Colts took two pass-rushers in the second round and added McCain in free agency.
They had options. Now their only option is Jenkins putting it on himself to record a sack more than once every 200-plus snaps.
Holder worked 2 1/3 shutout innings to run his streak of not allowing an earned run to 24 1/3 innings over 21 outings.
This was the sixth career walk-off homer and fourth walk-off homer for Stanton.
The 2010 No. 1 overall pick also helped the Devils get back into the playoffs for the first time since 2011-12. When the race got tight in the second half of the season, Hall played his best. He started the 2018 calendar year by recording a point in 26 consecutive games played a run that lasted from Jan. 2 through March 8.
It’s been more about, how can we clinch a playoff spot? How can we keep climbing up the standings and chasing teams in front of us Hall late in the season. Like I’ve said before, I’m relied upon to produce offense for our team, and that’s my role. A lot to guys have roles on this team, and I’m just trying to do my best job with mine.
He entered the season with a career high of 27 goals, and Hall managed to match that number in 2018 after scoring 12 over October, November and December.
