NFL QB power rankings: Russell Wilson holds MVP edge over Deshaun Watson, Lamar Jackson in Week 10

first_imgThis week, the focus turns to the award that essentially rewards the top quarterback in the NFL in a given season — league MVP.  Three quarterbacks have emerged as the strongest candidates through the first half of the season based on how much they’ve carried their teams, but now a fourth — the reigning MVP, no less — is set to return to make up some major ground.From the best to the worst current starters for every team, let the debate continue.WEEK 10 NFL PICKS: Against the spread | Straight upNFL quarterback power rankings Week 101. Russell Wilson, Seahawks (last week: 2)Wilson has played spectacular football and is long overdue for a Seattle reign as MVP. With their lingering defensive issues and running game not being quite as a reliable, the Seahawks’ playoff hopes rest mostly on his arm and legs. The 49ers present a big chance to pad his lead.2. Deshaun Watson, Texans (3)Watson did get some more help from his running game and defense in Week 9 before the bye, but he’s provided plenty of razzle and dazzle to lift his team back to first place in the AFC South.3. Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs (not ranked)Mahomes is trending toward a return from knee injury with his full practice week and can pick up where he left off picking apart an injury-riddled Titans defense. He has two games of lost production for which to make up, but we know he can get hot in a hurry to put up more undeniable numbers and jaw-dropping plays.4. Lamar Jackson, Ravens (9)Jackson got the biggest win of his young career by passing and running the Ravens to a rout of the Patriots. He’s a gamer and a winner, and although Baltimore’s defense has figured out more things of late, the team wouldn’t be in first place in the AFC North without everything he’s done, including a key win vs. Wilson.5. Aaron Rodgers, Packers (1)Rodgers had some MVP momentum going into Week 10 after his two biggest games under Matt LaFleur, but then came the rough game in the loss at the Chargers. He’s doing his best to lift a limited receiving corps led by a limited Davante Adams. He will look to get well in a big way back in Green Bay.NFL POWER RANKINGS49ers, Saints jump Patriots; Ravens, Seahawks pass Packers for Week 106. Drew Brees, Saints (4)With the five games lost to his right thumb injury — all Saints wins — Brees, who has never won the MVP, will be more concerned about working on getting another Super Bowl MVP later with a contender that might be stronger than last year’s NFC runner-up.7. Dak Prescott, Cowboys (6)Prescott is on the fringe of the MVP conversation as he’s also playing at a high level. What’s hurt him are losses to Rodgers’ Packers and the Brees-less Saints. He has plenty of big-game chances ahead, however, with the Vikings, Patriots and Rams left.8. Tom Brady, Patriots (5)Brady is trying to lift an offense that has a struggling power running game and no true downfield threats in the passing game. He’ll be the first to admit he hasn’t played nearly his best, but his average is still better than most of the league.9. Carson Wentz, Eagles (11)Wentz’s season doesn’t have gaudy numbers and the Eagles are only 5-4, but his tough, gritty play in a compressed passing game continues to impress as a old-school quarterback ideal for colder-weather success.10. Matthew Stafford, Lions (8)Stafford has everything on him with the Lions’ defense and running game offering nothing toward their bottom line. He’s dealing well all over the field at the highest level of his career.11. Kirk Cousins, Vikings (7)Cousins has played very well playing off the running game but had a bit of a cool off with his downfield passing against the Chiefs. He also could use to raise his play in bigger games, because he’s still at his best ripping apart weaker teams.12. Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers (10)Jimmy G’s explosion in prime-time against the Cardinals reminded everyone he’s a lot more playmaker than caretaker for the NFL’s only undefeated team. He take that up a notice with another national night game vs the Seahawks on Monday.13. Matt Ryan, Falcons (12)Ryan should return from his ankle injury to face the rival Saints. He has done his best to keep Atlanta in games knowing it can’t run well and its defense consistently gives up big plays and big leads.14. Derek Carr, Raiders (15)Carr has been super-efficient all season and there are no more questions about how he meshes with Jon Gruden and the Raiders’ offense, given he’s doing this without Antonio Brown and with a committee of versatile receivers. He’s a pretty good reason why they’re 5-4, fresh off the winning comeback he led against the Chargers.15. Jacoby Brissett, Colts (14)Brissett might play through his knee injury against the Dolphins. With his mental and physical toughness, the Colts couldn’t have asked for much more than what he’s doing in their strong support system. He’s done plenty to prove he was worthy of being extended as the starter.NFL BACKUP QB QUIZ:Can you name your favorite team’s second-stringer?16. Jared Goff, Rams (16)Goff returns from a bye without wide receiver Brandin Cooks and faces a make-or-break second half featuring a slew of tough defensive matchups, starting with the Steelers.17. Kyler Murray, Cardinals (17)Murray has had some terrific games as a rookie like the one against the 49ers to prove the Cardinals got it right by pairing him with Kliff Kingsbury. The passing game is very friendly for his talents, and his running should be more effective with David Johnson back.18. Philip Rivers, Chargers (18)What was that? Rivers had every opportunity to rip apart a weak Raiders’ pass defense and ended up having one of his classic mistake-filled games. He was enjoying career-best play with Anthony Lynn, but now it’s back to some shaky times from San Diego.19. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers (18)Winston did have a turnover in Seattle, but as Bruce Arians pointed out, it was yet another one that wasn’t his fault. He is locked in with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin to think the Bucs should make sure to lock up him as their franchise passer.20. Nick Foles, Jaguars (not ranked)Foles gets the starting gig back from Gardner Minshew after the Week 10 bye, following Minshew’s bad game in Week 9. But there’s no guarantee Foles will be better than Minshew was in most of the games he played since Week 1.21. Baker Mayfield, Browns (19)Mayfield gets propped up here again by considering the physical talent he still has and there were more signs of him breaking a sophomore season-long slump during a tough matchup in Denver. There’s still time to restore some good vibes as now the playoffs aren’t a concern.22. Josh Allen, Bills (23)Allen has held steady with slight improvement from his rookie season but the defense and running game are way more responsible for having the Bills playoff positioned. He’ll need to raise his game in the second half for them to nail down the wild card.23. Kyle Allen, Panthers (27)Allen has done well to help Carolina win when Christian McCaffrey is making things easier with big runs and catches and the defense is creating shorter fields with takeaways. It’s now on him to help them come through against tougher competition such as the Packers, now that he has an extended audition for the job with Cam Newton on IR.24. Ryan Tannehill, Titans (20)Tannehill is back to being the usual inconsistent thrill ride, athletic playmaker who can turn ineffective passer at any moment. He’s still a huge improvement, which doesn’t bode well for the NFL future of Marcus Mariota.25. Daniel Jones, Giants (22)Sometimes in quarters, Danny throws dimes. Other times, he gets confused by the nickel package and his coin tosses become turnovers. Our two cents is that he’s still a promising rookie who will keep learning from mistakes.NFL MOCK DRAFT 2020: Which three QBs go in Round 1?26. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins (29)Fitzpatrick was trending toward getting Miami in the win column and it had to be sweet to do that against one of his many former teams, the Jets. He’s still the same old (emphasis on old) gunslinger.27. Mason Rudolph, Steelers (25)Rudolph has done his best to guide Pittsburgh’s sleigh without Ben Roethlisberger, but there’s still not a comfort level he should be Big Ben’s full-time successor as he can quickly fall into a checkdown shell.28. Sam Darnold, Jets (26)Darnold isn’t hitting on the shorter or longer passes like we thought he could in a potential breakout season under Adam Gase, stuck in intermediate or interception mode. He needs to finish strong against a very easy schedule to take key positives into Year 3.29. Mitchell Trubisky, Bears (29)Trubisky doesn’t want the televisions on at Halas Hall because he doesn’t want to hear anything about the way he’s struggling. Our guess is he probably gets plenty of that already from coach Matt Nagy.30. Brandon Allen, Broncos (32)Allen made it three victorious Allens with a pretty good playmaker-facilitating performance against the Browns. It will be interesting to see if Allen can keep the job ahead of a healthy Drew Lock.31. Ryan Finley, Bengals (not ranked) Finley did perform well in the preseason and had a good career at NC State and will be the fourth NFL starter from that program when he takes the field against the Ravens, but we know that’s a very tough first game.32. Dwayne Haskins, Redskins (31)Haskins looks like he might get an extended look after the bye. The limited playing time so far has been rough, but maybe a full trial by fire to end his rookie season is exactly what he needs to improve vastly for Year 2. Ranking NFL quarterbacks has never been more difficult. The league has never seen so many good passers (and runners) at the position as it has in 2019, from rising young stars to accomplished veterans with plenty of above-average players in between.Because our preseason rankings weren’t enough, we will keep doing weekly updates based on the natural fluctuation of football’s most important position.last_img read more

Wellington Swim Team stuns Derby on the road in first meet of the year

first_imgAdrianna Young of Wellington swim team. (file photo)by Bliss Baird, special to Sumner Newscow — Something unusual happened Tuesday night as the Wellington Sailfish traveled to compete with the Derby Dolphins. Something that began with a heat sheet filled with Wellington swimmers, continued when less than a handful of disqualification slips were distributed, and concluded as Wellington’s older swimmers performed the brutal 200 IM and 400 free. Something that left the coaches holding their breaths and checking their emails as they waited all night and all morning for the final results to arrive. When they did, jubilation set in – Wellington had WON!To be sure, Wellington has won some meets in the past, but never in head coach Lyndsie Oathout’s memory have they bested perennial powerhouse Derby. The host team’s long course pool was an added challenge. Staring down all 50 meters can be daunting to any swimmer who practices in a facility half that length, but it is especially intimidating to first-time swimmers. Nevertheless, Megan Davis, Lakin Dry, Trent Haines, Rome Hunt, Shi Wise, and Isaiah Winger exhibited courage and perseverance to complete their events.While the big story of the night was the team’s win, success would not have been possible without individual victories. Swimmers measure their progress through best times. While beating a time set during the peak of the previous season is not expected at the first meet, many Sailfish attained spectacular cuts. Alysa Stewart sliced 102 seconds off of one race! Laney Dillon, Alara Wilson, Maddox Miller, and Emma Dillon each cut more than 50 seconds during the night. Hayden Stow dropped 45 seconds in just two races. He could not cut time from his 50 back because he had never swam it before, but he could surprise his five Derby opponents by winning it from the slowest heat!Besides setting personal bests, individual success comes in the form of qualifications for post-season meets. Swimmers earn the opportunity to swim an event at these meets through achieving a qualification time or “cut” set by Missouri Valley Swimming. The first tier is Districts. At the Derby meet, Marisa Black and Jordan Thompson punched their tickets in the 50 free. Black also earned a spot in the 100 backstroke. Despite aging up over the offseason, Jensen Lynnes proved that the faster time standards are no match for her. She clinched qualifications in all three of her events: the 50 free, 50 back, and 50 breast. Nash Oswald qualified for Districts in the 50 free and 50 fly (dropping nearly 12 seconds in the process!), but he did not stop there. Oswald claimed a Championship cut – the level above Districts – in his 50 backstroke. Championship cuts are always an achievement, but seizing one at the first meet of the season is especially remarkable.All in all, Tuesday’s meet was one that will live long in Sailfish lore. After two weeks of frigid, challenging, and early practices, Wellington swimmers’ hard work paid off to make history and their coaches’ day.  Sailfish, let’s do it again next week!This week’s top finishers were:Marisa Black (First – 15-18 Girls 50 Free; First – 100 Back; First – 400 Free)Megan Davis (Second – 8 and Under Girls 100 Free)Michael Davis (First – 9-10 Boys 100 Free; Second –50 Free)Rose Dickinson (Third – 15-18 Girls 200 Free)Emma Dillon (Second – 13-14 Girls 50 Free; Second – 200 IM; Third – 100 Free)Laney Dillon (Third – 9-10 Girls 50 Back)Lakin Dry (Second – 11-12 Boys 100 Free; Third – 50 Free)Alec Gonzalez (Third – 9-10 Boys 50 Back)Emberly Gonzalez (First – 13-14 Girls 50 Free; First – 100 Free; First – 100 Breast)Macy Gonzalez (Third – 11-12 Girls 50 Fly; Third – 200 IM)Cat Green (Second – 15-18 Girls 400 Free; Second – 200 Free)Colin Green (First – 13-14 Boys 100 Breast)Chance Hamel (First – 15-18 Boys 200 IM; Second – 50 Free; Second – 100 Breast)Kailey Klein (First – 15-18 Girls 100 Breast; Third – 400 Free)Derick Kotchavar (First – 13-14 Boys 50 Free; First – 200 Free; Second – 100 Free)Dakota Lynnes (Second – 13-14 Boys 50 Free; Second – 100 Breast)Jensen Lynnes (Second – 11-12 Girls 50 Free; Second – 50 Breast; Third – 50 Back)Quinn McCue (First – 13-14 Boys 400 Free; Third – 100 Free)Nash Oswald (First – 9-10 Boys 50 Free; First – 50 Back; First – 50 Fly)Hayden Stow (First – 8 and Under Boys 50 Free; First – 50 Back; First – 100 Free)Jordan Thompson (First – 15-18 Girls 100 Free; Second – 50 Free; Second – 100 Back)Alexis Tracy (Second – 15-18 Girls 100 Breast)Mackinze Tracy (Third – 15-18 Girls 100 Back; Third – 100 Free)Timothy Tracy (First – 13-14 Boys 100 Back)Arallai Wartick (First – 8 and Under Girls 50 Back; Second – 50 Free)Alara Wilson (First – 8 and Under Girls 50 Free; First – 100 Free; Second – 50 Back)Maddox Wylie (First – 9-10 Boys 50 Breast; Third –100 Free)Makenna Wylie (Third – 9-10 Girls 50 Breast)Megan Wylie (Third – 13-14 Girls 100 Back)Silas Wylie (First – 15-18 Boys 200 Free; Third – 100 Free)Aidan Young (First – 13-14 Boys 200 IM; Third –50 Free)Aurora Young (First – 9-10 Girls 50 Back; First – 200 IM)Terrell Zani (Second – 15-18 Boys 100 Back)First-place relay finishes:Michael Davis, Travis Cody, Maddox Wylie, Nash Oswald (9-10 Boys 200 Free)Quinn McCue, Aidan Young, Derick Kotchavar, Dakota Lynnes (13-14 Boys 200 Free)Jordan Thompson, Rose Dickinson, Mackinze Tracy, Marisa Black (15-18 Girls 200 Free)Silas Wylie, Terrell Zani, Colin Green, Chance Hamel (15-18 Boys 200 Free)Alec Gonzalez, Maddox Wylie, Nash Oswald, Michael Davis (9-10 Boys 200 Medley)Aidan Young, Colin Green, Quinn McCue, Dakota Lynnes (13-14 Boys 200 Medley)Mackinze Tracy, Alexis Tracy, Marisa Black, Jordan Thompson (15-18 Girls 200 Medley)Terrell Zani, Silas Wylie, Chance Hamel, Derick Kotchavar (15-18 Boys 200 Medley).Full Wellington Swim Team results are here: results DSC v WELL 7 June 2016Follow us on Twitter.

Now that you know how to fill it out, here’s a PDF version for Super Bowl 54.You can download the grid by clicking here. Your numbers should align with your square from both the vertical and horizontal position. Bill Bender’s square, for example, has a “3” for the Chiefs and a “7” for the 49ers.    How do you win Super Bowl squares?  Most standard Super Bowl squares pools pay a winner after the first quarter, second quarter, third quarter and final score. How is that determined?  Go back to Bender’s “3” for the Chiefs and “7” for the 49ers. Bender would “win” if the final number in each team’s score matches at the end of each quarter. San Francisco 7-3 after the first quarter, Kansas City 13-7 after the second quarter and San Francisco 27-23 at the end of the game are all examples of winning scores for Bender’s squares.  So, “7” and “3” are obviously good numbers in any situation.

But first, here are the combinations with the best statistical odds of winning.MORE SUPER BOWL PROPS:Commercials | Halftime | Broadcast | National anthemWhat are the best numbers for Super Bowl squares? There have been a total of 212 winning number combinations in Super Bowl history (which is a limited sample size), but here’s how those combinations have hit by quarter. The home team is on the horizontal access and the road team is on the vertical axis.  For reference, in the game between the Patriots and Rams last season the winning combos were 0-3, 3-0, 3-3 and 3-3.In the history of the Super Bowl, the four best combinations have been 0-0 (17 times), 0-3 (11 times), 0-7 (10 times) and 7-0 (10 times). COMBO1234567890SUM10011213102112010100200483208202601113243045005115245200000200376106002442423731960270010388011100001159110110310513020771210321751SUM1443624494210762212MORE: Full Super Bowl 54 betting guideHow to draw numbers for squaresYou should designate a person to hold a drawing to randomly place numbers 0-9 across the Chiefs row and the 49ers column.

The next step is getting players to fill the squares. This could be done either online or on an old-school posterboard.  There is no perfect science to picking a square, because the numbers down the “home team” row and “visiting team” column are drawn at random. But keep in mind that if you pick multiple squares in the same row or column you will have fewer number combinations to work with.  TIP: You can also use “winning score” and “losing score” instead of the team names for a more complex pool, but for the sake of simplicity we will stick with “Chiefs” and “49ers.”  Once all 100 squares have been filled with names, the board is set. It should look like this when finished:   So how do you play Super Bowl squares?
