Capers has been the Packers' defensive coordinator since 2009. But it's been downhill over the past several seasons with Green Bay's defense ranking in the bottom half of the National Football League in three of the past five years. Should Capers, 67, decide to retire, it would end a coaching career that began in 1972 as a graduate assistant at Kent State. McCarthy and the Packers will have plenty of options available to replace Capers.

The Trail Blazers would qualify as a less meaningful opponent. Thomas' return comes right at the target date previously reported for the Cavs' point guard, but there is a bit of a surprise to the timing. Though Isaiah Thomas only played two-and-a-half seasons for the Celtics, he had left his mark well. Since then, Thomas has been itching to get back on to the court and prove that the Celtics made a mistake, and returning against Boston was likely on Thomas' mind all along.

There is competition. Patricia, 43, also is considered a candidate for the Detroit Lions' coaching vacancy because of his connection to GM Bob Quinn, a 16-year Patriots employee and front office executive who rose to director of scouting for New England from 2012-15.

We get to watch some of the most exciting matchups in college football to kickoff the new year, starting with a matchup in the Outback Bowl between the Michigan Wolverines and South Carolina Gamecocks . They will be facing a Maize, Blue and Orange swarm that likes to harass and harangue opposing quarterbacks with relentless pressure and an in-your-face style of defense.

His first stint in the National Football League would be next as running backs coach with the Kansas City Chiefs from 1989-1992. It appeared the Denver Broncos were set to search for their fourth head coach in five seasons. Pagano went 53-43 in Indianapolis, but the Colts missed the playoffs for the third straight year after going 11-5 and making the postseason in his first three seasons at the helm.

But Burnley did not give up and the Clarets eventually took advantage of poor defending from Liverpool to level through Johann Gudmundsson just three minutes before full time. Meanwhile they hold a six point advantage over Arsenal, although the Gunners have a game in hand. Slimani doubles Leicester's advantage at the King Power, collecting a pass from Mahrez and dinking the ball over Jonas Lossl.

Bourbonnais in 2015 opened with returning Bears raving about what a breath of fresh air the locker room and training camp had become with Brandon Marshall gone and Fox a much more traditional players-type coach than Trestman. Upset fans had been calling for his dismissal for a large part of the 2017, and another sub-.500 season seems to have justified the firing. Fox wasn't prepared for Pace's bold move to draft Trubisky.

New Zealand lead the three T20I series as they won the first game by 47 runs. Munro hit 11 fours and three sixes, falling after hitting four consecutive boundaries from Kesrick Williams. The last over of the New Zealand innings, bowled by Kesrick Williams, cost 25 runs and made a substantial difference between the teams, giving New Zealand a more than competitive total on a slow wicket at Saxton Oval which made hard-hitting hard.

It should also be noted that Gruden now works for ESPN and presumably Schefter would not make such a proclamation without some assurance that his statement was accurate. The Raiders were a popular preseason pick to be a contender in the AFC, but have fallen to 6-9. Gruden, who won a Super Bowl after that trade to Tampa Bay, has been in the " Monday Night Football " booth since 2008, but every year rumors of his return to the field intensify as coaching openings crop up around the league.

Music can be heard blaring in the background of the video as police enter the kitchen. "The squirrel turned it on?" they asked. When they went to investigate they were ruthlessly a cornered squirrel. They eventually capture the vermin and release it with no injury. The post was titled: "Squirrel starts New Year's party early". The homeowner was very relieved that their uninvited guest was set free.

They may not make the playoffs, but were certainly good enough to stomp the Raiders to their fourth straight loss and second four-game losing streak of the season. The Raiders are a good team - that's still true despite a 6-10 season - but Sunday's game was indeed a microcosm of Del Rio's final season in charge of the team, just as the outgoing head coach said.

The Browns also have Houston's second-round pick (35th overall) thanks to the trade that sent Brock Osweiler to the Browns, who waived Osweiler before the regular season began. In three drafts, general manager Ryan Pace has picked second, seventh and ninth. A pair of Pac-12 passers kick things off, with USC's Sam Darnold ( Cleveland Browns ) and UCLA's Josh Rosen ( New York Giants ) going with the first two picks.

Bray handed off late to fullback Anthony Sherman - who carried 14 times for 40 yards after coming into the game with six career carries in seven National Football League seasons - and linebacker Zaire Anderson scooped up the loose ball and scored from 38 yards out.

And Drake was ejected for throwing a Bills helmet about 20 yards. For the Dolphins , the season finale had the feel of an exhibition game, with thousands of empty seats and David Fales giving a lengthy, unimpressive audition as a potential backup quarterback in 2018.

New Orleans, bidding for a 12-4 regular season finish, faked its first field goal of the season late in the first half on a fourth-and-five play from the Tampa Bay 30-yard line. The Bucs otherwise controlled the ball in this one, limiting the Saints' offensive play volume. This time a 7-yard touchdown run, staking the Black and Gold to a 14-7 advantage.

The Brazil global went over awkwardly early on at Selhurst Park, overstretching as he inadvertently did the splits. The Citizens were held to a goalless draw at Selhurst Park in a feisty encounter that saw both Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne stretchered off for Man City.

Yates in the end zone for a safety. While the Texans will be without one of their primary deep threats if Fuller is out moving forward, they do still have DeAndre Hopkins to anchor the aerial attack as one of the best wide receivers in the league.

Tom Brady is a football god that has great numbers against everyone. There have been whisperings that Christian Hackenberg might play against the Patriots in week 17. Seferian-Jenkins has been one of the Jets' most consistent contributors on offense, ranking third on the team with 50 catches for 357 yards and three scores.

Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer finishes his rookie year with nine touchdowns, 21 interceptions and a 57.9 QB rating while coach Hue Jackson's record in Cleveland moves to 1-31 in two years. Pittsburgh has a backup quarterback going into the playoffs, which makes it relative National Football League royalty. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger , running back Le'Veon Bell, wide receiver Antonio Brown and defensive end Cameron Heyward were among inactives for the Pittsburgh Steelers on ...

Dallas lost 29-10 in Carolina during that season's opening wild-card weekend. When you can stack wins on top of each other, you just keep building confidence. The rookie's left shoulder injury first popped up after the December 3 win in Atlanta. With veteran long snapper Kevin McDermott out because of a dislocated left shoulder, the Vikings turn to Jeff Overbaugh, whom they signed last week.

O'Brien also will push to have input in the hiring of a Smith replacement so he can have more say in personnel decisions, the source said. The problem in this is that O'Brien is only under contract for one more season while Smith was extended previous year through the 2020 season.

You look at players like ( Paul) Pogba , (Nemanja) Matic...they are top players, but they are under performing. Mourinho has to consider whether a fresh approach is necessary after the Reds have gone four games without a win. It leaves them realistically surrendering the title to their city rivals, and having lost to Bristol City in the Carabao Cup, only with the FA Cup and Champions League to play for before 2017 is out.

The year prior, the Raiders also gave general manager Reggie McKenzie an extension, and it's not known how Gruden's hiring would affect the general manager in terms of the draft and free agency. I'm a Buccaneers fan (the team Gruden spurned to entertain talks with the Raiders), and had talked myself into Gruden becoming the next head coach of the team.

The most controversial moment, though, was undoubtedly the foul by Jason Puncheon on Kevin De Bruyne in added time. Moss didn't clearly didn't see the incident otherwise he would surely have produced a red card, and even though he was up and walking aided after the game, he will be very lucky to escape a serious injury.

A deal was agreed with him to return to former club Atletico back in September, but he has had to wait to seal the switch, due to their transfer ban. The Brazilian-born striker was presented by Atletico on Sunday along with fellow winter reinforcement Victor "Vitolo" Machin.

Also on Saturday, Naughton appeared to tread on the leg of Watford's Stefano Okaka in Swansea's 2-1 win at Vicarage Road. He has until 5pm today to respond. He also has until 5pm to respond to the charge. Antonio Valencia's hamstring injury limits Jose Mourinho's full-back options, with Marcos Rojo or Daley Blind likely to be drafted in on the right defensive flank.

On the other hand, the Philadelphia Eagles were on the outside looking in at the playoff picture. Nick Foles greatly reduced the fans' expectations for him after having a horrific showing against the Oakland Raiders . "It's not like you can go out there and force that, but it definitely would be nice". Given the situation this weekend, it was never expected Graham would be pushed to get back on the field quickly, but the ankle injury will be worth watching over the next two weeks as the ...

He attempted to play on but went down again in the 23rd minute, this time clearly distraught as tears streamed down his face. Sanchez may be in luck now, with Aguero not looking at his best and Jesus out, limiting City's famed firepower to a degree.

Full match report to follow... Just Chelsea's second penalty of the season handed Willian the chance to get the goal his performance deserved, a chance he didn't pass up, whilst Zappacosta got in on the act with a crisp left-foot drive from Josh Tymon's ill-fated knockdown.

West Bromwich Albion winger Nacer Chadli has been ruled out of action for up to two months after suffering another hip injury. Having lost on their last two visits to West Brom, this is not a foregone conclusion and even against struggling opponents this can hardly be considered banker material.

With Eden Hazard to Real Madrid rumours getting stronger and stronger, Chelsea fans were anxious about what would happen to the team after he left. "I must be honest, I didn't read the comments from his father today". 'It's very important to try to improve your team, to strengthen your team, and not to sell the best players.

The Buckeyes made it 24-0 later in the second two plays after Darnold was hit from behind as he tried to escape a collapsing pocket. On Friday night against Ohio State, the bad version showed up. "Disappointing? Yes, for our seniors". But then again, we've got to think about the reality side of it. Nick Bosa and Chase Young are the projected starters at defensive end going into next season.

On top of this recognition from fans, Nurmagomedov was chosen as the president and leader of the newly formed "Eagles MMA" team containing some of the best Russian fighters, which took its name from his fighting moniker, "The Eagle". On his third effort, Khabib finally took down Barboza and the onslaught began again. Khabib ate a body kick but avoided the punches, then relentlessly pursued a takedown.

Sevilla says it has reached a deal in principle with Montella for a contract through June 2019. The 48-year-old Berizzo was sacked last week, shortly after the Argentine coach returned from treatment for prostate cancer. They face Manchester United in the Champions League last 16 in February. The Italian's first match in charge will be in the Copa del Rey at Cadiz on January 3, before making his league debut three days later at home to rivals Real Betis.

The Raiders were a trendy preseason pick to make the Super Bowl , but the Silver and Black have been very disappointing as they enter Week 17 with a 6-9 record. Regardless of whether Gruden his hired, the Raiders, should they part with offensive coordinator Todd Downing, are faced with giving Carr his fourth offensive coordinator in five seasons following Greg Olson in 2014, Musgrave in 2015-16 and Downing in 2017.
