Status update:

Week 13 is the NFL’s “My Cause, My Cleats” week in which players get to wear customized cleats for one game and promote charitable efforts that are near and dear to them.

“One of the great NFL traditions is how our players passionately support important causes in their communities and around the globe every year,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in 2016. “They are incredibly creative by nature so we are not surprised how they are seizing the opportunity this week with inspiring expressions of their charitable commitments on their cleats, online and through social media.”

Keep an eye for more great tributes like Prescott’s going into Sunday.

A direct snap to special teams ace Nate Ebner led to a 14-yard gain that kept the Patriots’ offense on the field.

Unfortunately for the Patriots, the play resulted in a knee injury for Ebner that was serious enough to immediately rule him out for the remainder of the game.

But the play eventually led to a 2-yard touchdown run for Rex Burkhead that gave New England an early 7-0 lead. The clever fake that the Dolphins couldn’t stop might not have even been Bill Belichick’s call, but Ebner’s at the line of scrimmage.

Ebner made a call before the snap. Looks like he ordered the fake on the field because, I’d guess, the Patriots saw a vulnerability in film study that they could expose with the right look.dodgers_019

Q: You were able to pop one long one against the Panthers, what’d you see and what was different on that run compared to how stout the Panthers defense was otherwise?

Drake: “They’re a pretty good defense. You’ve got to give credit to them. That’s how the game’s supposed to go. You get stronger and score points in the second half to take a little bit of the pressure off the scoreboard. They did a great job up front of opening that hole. I didn’t get touched until I got to the end zone.

Celtics: Aron Baynes started for Morris, who wanted to test his problematic knee. Morris played 21 minutes off the bench. … Boston turned Miami’s first eight turnovers into exactly zero points. The Celtics wound up getting nine points off 16 Miami giveaways. … Shane Larkin was shaken up briefly after taking a hard foul near the rim by Miami’s Kelly Olynyk early in the fourth.

Kate, who no longer drives for Uber, said she doesn’t want money but wanted to tell the truth “about a powerful man who felt entitled to my body when all I wanted to do was my job.”

Winston is currently dealing with a shoulder injury that sidelined him in Week 10 and will likely force him to miss his second straight game Sunday against the Dolphins.

The recovery process is expected to take nine months, leaving Beverley with the expectation of a full recovery to return next season.

The loss of Beverley leaves the Clippers (6-11), who ended a nine-game losing streak Wednesday, without their opening-night starting backcourt for an extended period. Guard Milos Teodosic, a 30-year-old European rookie, has missed most of the regular season with left plantar fasciitis. He isn’t expected back soon.bears-036
