PHILADELPHIA — The Eagles escaped Carolina with a victory Thursday, so the historic disparity in penalty yards wasn’t the all-consuming topic of conversation in the locker room afterward. But Philadelphia’s players and coaches took notice, and there will be some clips sent to the NFL offices this weekend for review.

The Eagles were penalized 10 times for 126 yards in their 28-23 victory, compared to one penalty for 1 yard for the Panthers. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Thursday night’s game was the first in NFL history in which one team had at least 120 penalty yards and their opponent had fewer than 10 penalty yards.

“We felt like a lot of those were ticky-tack, or weren’t good calls,” said Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. “Adversity is nothing new for us. We just kind of strap up and hunker down.”

A few calls led to some clear in-game frustration for Eagles players and coaches. One was a pass interference on cornerback Jalen Mills on a Cam Newton deep ball intended for Curtis Samuel in the third quarter that was intercepted by safety Rodney McLeod. While Mills did seem to make light contact before the ball came down, it didn’t appear Samuel was in position to make a play on it. Mills was whistled for interference earlier in the game as well, on a bang-bang play. Rookie defensive end Derek Barnett was flagged for unnecessary roughness in the fourth quarter to extend a drive. The play was blown dead for delay of game, but the Eagles’ defensive front didn’t hear the whistle and Barnett knocked Newton to the ground.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson indicated they would be sending some of the plays to the league office, as is their custom.
“Every week our protocol is to go through and watch the game — [director of football compliance] Jon Ferrari helps out there — and we look at the game and whether it was a call against us or maybe a call that wasn’t made that maybe we felt should have been made, we send those in, we send those clips into the league office. Every team does this,” Pederson said. “Just want to get clarification. That’s all we’re trying to do, just trying to see whether the penalty should have happened or shouldn’t have happened. That’s just protocol and we’ll do that over the weekend.”

This is not the first time the Eagles have been on the wrong end of a lopsided penalty advantage with Pete Morelli’s crew officiating. During Pederson’s day-after news conference, it was pointed out to Pederson that the penalty disparity has been 40-8 in favor of the opposition in the past four games officiated by Morelli’s group.

“Well, I think the league is aware of it,” Pederson said. “I’m not going to get into all that. We have to do a better job. We have to coach it and we can’t be getting these flags. And listen, a lot of them were legit. I’m not saying they weren’t. A lot of the flags last night were legit calls, so we’ve got to do a better job there. For whatever reason, it is what it is, but moving forward we can’t worry about it. Bottom line, we won the game. We figured out how to do that, and that’s the bottom line.”

Cheap Basketball Denver Nuggets Gary Harris Youth Jerseys China Free Shipping

Gary Harris just got PAID.

The Denver Nuggets love what Harris brings at the two-guard spot — he plays well off Nikola Jokic, he averaged 14.9 points per game last season, shot 42 percent from three, averaged an impressive 1.2 points per possession on spot-up attempts, and he is a good defender as well. All at age 23.

So Denver paid up to lock him up, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris has reached agreement on a four-year, $84 million contract extension, league sources told ESPN.The deal includes $74 million in guaranteed money, and team and individual bonus clauses worth the remaining $10 million, league sources said.

That guaranteed number makes more sense than the agent-friendly first number, $74 million is an average of $18.5 million per season (it does depend on how achievable those bonuses are). A contract that averages $21 million would be steep. The Nuggets could be flirting with the tax line in the 2018-19, especially considering they will have the contract extensions for Jokic and Will Barton due.

The Gary Harris extension now has Denver with $113M in guaranteed salary next year. The Nuggets could be a tax team in 2018-19.

This is a good move by Denver, the Nuggets lock up a crucial part of their young core along with Jokic, Jamal Murray, and, for the next few years, Paul Millsap. Harris provides the defense and floor spacing the Nuggets need with Jokic and Millsap inside.

Harris gets his money and avoids restricted free agent next July, when a number of two-guard “3&D” guys — Danny Green, Avery Bradley, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope — will all be on the market as unrestricted free agents.

The Nuggets are going to be a playoff team in the West this season if they can stay healthy and improve their defense. Bringing in Millsap and keeping Harris happy should help with that.

Cheap Football Ben Heeney Saints Youth Jerseys China Free Shipping

The Texans claimed linebacker Ben Heeney off waivers from the Saints. He adds depth at inside linebacker, where the Texans are without suspended veteran Brian Cushing.

The Raiders made Heeney a fifth-round pick out of Kansas in 2015. He spent two seasons with the Raiders, but Oakland waived Heeney last month.

He appeared in 19 games with the Raiders, including five starts, and made 54 tackles, 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Heeney signed to the Saints’ practice squad Sept. 22. They promoted him the active roster last week.

The Texans waived safety Kurtis Drummond in a corresponding move.
