NFL launches ‘Let’s Listen Together’ campaign focused on social justice

The NFL announced Tuesday they are launching a joint program between players and coaches with a commitment to focusing on social justice.

The Let’s Listen Together campaign will focus on supporting programs and initiatives that reduce barriers to opportunity, with a priority on supporting improvements in education and economic development, community and police relations, and the criminal justice system.

We are pleased to have developed a new initiative that focuses on creating meaningful solutions to improve our communities, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. In developing this plan, we have taken the lead from our players and are honored to join them in this work. Their work has deepened our understanding of the unique platform we have to help advance progress in a profound and unifying way.

Running back Jordan Scarlett, receiver Rick Wells and linebackers James Houston and Ventrell Miller are enrolled in school and rejoining team workouts.

The four entered a pretrial intervention program in late October that could result in the dismissal of felony credit card fraud charges. The players needed to make restitution and comply with probation protocols over a 12-month period to get the charges dropped without any legal findings.

A source told ESPN that the four players will go through workouts, spring practice, summer workouts and fall camp, but there is no promise that they will play in the first game of next season.

A fifth player, defensive lineman Keivonnis Davis, also remains enrolled in school but is recovering from a non-football injury.

Rider finishes on 8-0 run, tips Fairfield 90-88

Dimencio Vaughn scored 20 points with 13 rebounds and his extra effort underneath the basket paid off with the game-winner Tuesday night as Rider edged Fairfield 90-88 in a wild finish.

Really for me, my decision is just going to come down to do I feel like I’m healthy enough to survive another season?

It’s a valid concern for a 32-year-old who played every down possible until the middle of his 11th season. It’s also fair for an all-time great lineman who’s been trapped on an island of ineptitude — save for his rookie season in which the Browns won 10 games but missed the playoffs — since 2007. He’s more than earned the right to move into the next phase of his life if he so desires.

For this year’s game, the league asked the FBI to perform security checks on all credentialed personnel, including members of the media, McCarthy said. The NFL’s security department, which controls the composition of the application form, attempted to make the press credentialing process consistent with checks that are done for others who receive a working credential, which includes requesting racial information.

The FBI has said that while providing racial information is helpful to conducting security checks, it has not been, and was not intended to be, a required field on the application form.

On Wednesday, 19th-ranked Auburn will travel to face a Missouri team that features three players — Jordan Barnett, Kassius Robertson and Jordan Geist — who all shoot better than 40 percent from behind the arc.

You’ve got to do it consistently, Robertson said. We’ve been in countless close games this season. We’ve got to learn how to consistently keep leads and take care of the ball at the end of the game and execute at the end of the game.

Over its past eight games, Missouri (13-6, 3-3 SEC) alternated wins and losses, but as Pearl noted, is 12-1 at home.

Auburn, which will have sizes issues inside and outside against Missouri, will need a repeat performance from Bryce Brown, who made 5 of 9 shots from long range and scored 28 points in the win on Saturday.

Los Angeles comes up just short on a third-and-8 and it elects to go for it on fourth down.

Rivers drops back to pass on the play and the Chiefs bring pressure. Rivers lofts a throw to Antonio Gates and the ball is intercepted by Kansas City linebacker Justin Houston. Three straight Los Angeles drives have ended with a turnover.

Field goal Chiefs. The Chiefs move the chains once but Alex Smith’s third-down pass comes up short of the marker and Kansas City settles for a 51-yard field goal from Harrison Butker. The Chiefs now lead 23-13 with 10:59 to play.

Turnover Chargers. Rivers completes a 7-yard pass to Austin Ekeler, moving the Chargers to their 41. But Ekeler looses the football and its recovered by Kansas City safety Ron Parker. Two straight Los Angeles drives have ended in turnovers.

Tyler Jones? You mean TYUS Jones? Either the Cleveland Cavalier assistant coaches made the same mistake on their pregame notes as my iPhone X does when it autocorrects Tyus to Tyler, or the three-time NBA champion doesn’t have much time (or respect) for the first-round draft pick (and STARTING POINT GUARD) for his upcoming opponent. Either way, the setup has occurred.

The Capitals took a 2-0 lead, and the Blackhawks rallied to tie before the third period. Troy Brouwer, who won a Stanley Cup with Chicago, scored the game-winning power-play goal with 13 seconds left in regulation to send a partisan crowd of nearly 43,000 fans into hysterics.

Gorgeous stadium, too, even if the 40 degrees and sunny weather didn’t make for memorable conditions.

Call it recency bias, call it what you will, but the 2018 Winter Classic delivered another of the event’s better games while riding a wave of hype surrounding the 10th anniversary of the first Winter Classic in Buffalo (more on that in a bit).

Freezing temperatures at game time made for some adventurous puck play, and the annoying shadows that made TV viewing a bit difficult in the first period were gone by the second. The Rangers took a 2-0 lead in the first, and the Sabres rallied with goals in the second and third. For the first time since 2014, the game went to overtime, where J.T. Miller ended it for the Rangers.
