        Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

        Six most popular picks for Week 5 in the Westgate Super Contest:

        6) Kansas City Chiefs even, 615- W

        5) Buffalo Bills +3, 650- L

        4) Los Angeles Rams -1, 725- L

        3) Houston Texans even, 778- L

        2) Cincinnati Bengals -3, 847- W

        1) Detroit Lions -2.5, 1,053- L

        Season record of top 6 picks: 13-17


        **********

        Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up an NFL Sunday

        Patriots 19, Buccaneers 14— Tampa Bay missed three FG’s; they’ll have a new kicker next week. Bucs had ball on Patriots’ 15-yard line when game ended, but ran out of time. Both teams gained 400+ yards, but combined to score only 27 points on seven red zone drives. Big improvement for New England defense, but they still allowed 409 yards.

        Chargers 27, Giants 22— Manning was sacked/fumbled on his own 11 with 3:46 left, Chargers scored three plays later for their first win of the year. Giants are 0-5 and head to Denver next week without WR Beckham, who broke his ankle. Four of Chargers’ five games were decided by 5 or less points. Giants never got in red zone in this game; their TD’s were on plays of 23-29-48 yards. Chargers are 23-11-1 in last 35 games as a road underdog.

        Bengals 20, Bills 16— Cincy outgained Bills 388-221, but turned ball over three times (-2); they held Buffalo to 3.8 ypa. Both teams scored 13 points on three red zone drives. Buffalo is now +8 in turnovers for the year, but they need their passing game to drive the bus now and then. For the week, individual team over/unders are 14-12 Under heading to Monday night.

        Jets 17, Browns 14— Cleveland changed QB’s at halftime, trailing 3-0; Hogan went 16-19 for 194 yards in two TD’s in 2nd half, would think he is now the #1 guy. Browns had ball in red zone three times, scored zero points, turning ball over twice in red zone in first half, then losing ball on downs in 3rd quarter. Suddenly Jets have won three games in row and tied for first in AFC East with Bills/Patriots. Browns are 4-11 vs spread in last 15 games when favored.

        Jaguars 30, Steelers 9— While the Giants are 0-5, Tom Coughlin’s Jaguars are 3-2- they picked Roethlisberger off five times in this game (+4), with pair of pick-6’s 2:30 apart in third quarter when Steelers led 9-7. Jaguars are +10 in turnovers already. Steelers lost two of last three games; they didn’t score a TD in this game. Jax ran ball for 231 yards; they’ve run ball for 155+ yards in 4 of their 5 games.

        Dolphins 16, Titans 10— Awful offense on both sides; they averaged 3.1, 2.8 ypa- these are NFL teams!!! Dolphins have three TD’s on 42 drives this season- why are they paying Cutler $10M? Backup QB Cassel was 21-32/119 passing for Titans, who lost 57-14 LW. Titans are 8-34 on 3rd down the last three games- they went 3/out on 16 of last 26 drives. Longest play from scrimmage in this game was 17 yards- very rare there is a game with no plays of 20+ yards.

        Colts 26, 49ers 23 (OT)— All three Indy home games have been decided by 3 points; Brissett threw an awful INT in red zone on Colts’ first possession of OT, but Vinatieri bailed them out on next possession, bitting 51-yard FG to send everyone home happy. Colts had 7 plays of 20+ yards, most of any NFL team this week; they had 11-yard edge in field position, but scored only 13 points on four red zone drives. At 2-3, Colts are still alive with QB Luck expected back soon.

        Eagles 34, Cardinals 7— Philly won this game easily, holding Cardinals to 31 rushing yards- they averaged 9.6 ypa. Eagles are 39-73 on 3rd down this year- they’re up 1.5 games in NFC East. Arizona gave up 12 TD’s in their three losses, one each in their wins, by a FG each over Colts/49ers. Cardinals have run ball for only 51.8 yards a game this year- they lost field position by 15 yards in this game. Hard to win that way.

        Panthers (3-1) @ Lions (3-1)— Carolina is now 3-0 on the road, scoring 23-33-27 points. Cam Newton lit Detroit up; he was 26-33/334 passing, averaging over 9.0 ypa for 2nd week in row. Newton lost his Dannon yogurt commercial because of his comment to a woman reporter last week- Dak Prescott takes his place. Detroit was +9 in turnovers coming in; they were -1 here, and lost field position for first time this year.

        Seahawks 16, Rams 10— Los Angeles in the red zone Sunday:
        1st quarter: Lost fumble on 1-yard line
        2nd quarter: Kicked a 34-yard field goal
        3rd quarter: Missed a 35-yard field goal
        3rd quarter: Threw INT on a screen pass
        4th quarter: Lost ball on downs as game ended.

        Thats five trips to red zone, 3 points, a total of five turnovers (-3). Can’t win that way.

        Ram opponents are 24-49 on 3rd down the last three games.

        Ravens 30, Raiders 17— Baltimore’s season so far:
        First two games: +7 turnovers, won 20-0/24-10. Led 17-0/21-7 at half.
        Second two games: -5 turnovers, lost 44-7/26-9. Trailed 23-0/19-0 at half.
        Sunday at Oakland: 8.5 ypa, no turnovers, led 21-3.

        Raiders lost their last three games; their QB has a broken back, and his backup lost his last six NFL starts. Not good.

        Packers 35, Cowboys 31— Aaron Rodgers drove Green Bay 75 yards on nine plays for the winning TD with 0:11 left, after Dallas had taken the lead with 1:13 left. Cowboys led 21-6 at one point, but Rodgers is a great QB- Packers are 4-1 now. Green Bay is now 7-1 in last eight games against the Cowboys, winning last three visits to Dallas, 37-36/34-31/35-31.

        Chiefs 42, Texans 34— JJ Watt broke his leg, which took the air out of the building early on; Kansas City won/covered its first five games, scoring 17 TD’s on 52 drives. Chiefs are 13-2 as a road favorite under Reid. Rookie QB Watson threw five TD passes in a losing cause; in last two years, Cleveland has passed on Wentz, Prescott and Watson- their QB now is Kevin Hogan. Good thing guy that runs their franchise went to an Ivy League school- an educated imbecile.

                    TORONTO (AP) Auston Matthews scored in overtime and the Toronto Maple Leafs came from behind to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 on Monday night.

                    Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and James van Riemsdyk also scored for the Maple Leafs, who have won their first three games.

                    Jan Rutta, Jonathan Toews and Richard Panik had goals for the Blackhawks.

                    Frederik Andersen made 18 saves for the win while Anton Forsberg stopped 39 shots.

                    BLUES 3, ISLANDERS 2, OT

                    NEW YORK (AP) - Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko scored shootout goals to lift St. Louis over New York, the third straight win to start the season for the Blues.

                    Andrew Ladd and Anders Lee had scored for the Islanders in the third period to send the game into overtime, Lee's goal coming at the 19-minute mark.

                    Tarasenko scored twice in the second period for the Blues, who were seemingly in control until Ladd scored for the home team at 13:04 of the third period to ruin Jake Allen's shutout bid.

                    Allen, who made 40 saves, denied Jordan Eberle and Anthony Beauvillier in the shootout.

                    AVALANCHE 4, BRUINS 0

                    BOSTON (AP) - Semyon Varlamov stopped 29 shots, Nail Yakupov scored two goals and Colorado continued its recent success in Boston.

                    Sven Andrighetto and J.T. Compher scored first-period goals for the Avalanche, who improved to 11-0-0-1 in their past 12 games in Boston since the most recent loss coming on March 30, 1998.

                    Colorado completed its season-opening three-game road trip at 2-1. Boston split its first two games - both at home.

                    Tuukka Rask made 19 saves for the Bruins.

                    LIGHTNING 4, OILERS 3, OT

                    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Brayden Point scored on a power play in overtime, Tampa Bay held high-scoring Alex Ovechkin pointless and the Lightning beat Washington.

                    Point redirected Nikita Kucherov's shot at 3:08 and that came after the Capitals were assessed a too many men on the ice penalty.

                    Ovechkin entered with seven goals in Washington's first two games this season.

                    Tampa Bay got goals from Alex Killorn, and Chris Kunitz, and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 23 saves.

                    T.J. Oshie had two goals and an assist, while Nicklas Backstrom added a goal and two assists for the Capitals. Philipp Grubauer stopped 36 shots in his first game of the season.

                    DEVILS 6, SABRES 2


                    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Rookie Jesper Bratt and Marcus Johansson each had two goals and an assist and New Jersey beat Buffalo.

                    Brian Gibbons added a goal and an assist, Taylor Hall had two assists, and Stefan Noesen also scored. New Jersey is 2-0 for the first time in three seasons.

                    No. 1 overall pick Nico Hischier recorded his first NHL point and Cory Schneider made 23 saves for the Devils.

                    Evander Kane scored twice for the winless Sabres, who were booed off the ice after all three periods. Chad Johnson stopped 16 of 22 shots before being replaced by Robin Lehner (nine saves) in the third period.

                    JETS 5, OILERS 2

                    EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Nikolaj Ehlers had a hat trick and an assist and Winnipeg captured its first win of the season by beating Edmonton.

                    Mark Scheifele and Dmitry Kulikov also scored for the Jets.

                    Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal each for the Oilers, who have lost two straight.

                    Connor Hellebuyck picked up the win in net by making 37 saves. Cam Talbot turned away 38-of-43 shots in defeat.

                    FLAMES 2, DUCKS 0


                    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Mike Smith made 43 saves and Calgary ended a 25-game skid at Honda Center with a win over Anaheim.

                    Calgary got goals from Sean Monahan and Mikael Backlund. It hadn't won at Anaheim since Jan. 19, 2004.

                    John Gibson stopped 27 shots for the Ducks.

                      NHL notebook: Panthers' Matheson signs 8-year extension
                      October 9, 2017


                      The Florida Panthers signed defenseman Mike Matheson to an eight-year contract extension on Monday.

                      Matheson, 23, recorded 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) in 81 games during his 2016-17 rookie season, averaging 21:03 of ice time.

                      Financial terms of the deal were not released, but Sportsnet reported Saturday night that the Panthers were working on the extension with an average annual value of just under $5 million. Matheson was in the final season of his three-year, entry-level contract.

                      The 6-foot-2, 192-pound native of Pointe-Claire, Quebec, has played in 86 career NHL games, all with Florida. In five career playoff games, he has one assist.

                      --The Philadelphia Flyers acquired goaltender Dustin Tokarski from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for future considerations.

                      The Flyers promptly assigned Tokarski to Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League.

                      Tokarski stopped all five shots he faced in one appearance with Anaheim last season. The 28-year-old Saskatchewan native has posted a 10-12-5 mark with one shutout, a 2.84 goals-against average and .904 save percentage in 34 career NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Montreal Canadiens and Ducks.

                      --The New York Rangers claimed forward Adam Cracknell off waivers.

                      Cracknell, 32, played in one game with the Dallas Stars this season before being placed on waivers Sunday. He owns 43 career points (21 goals, 22 assists) and 46 penalty minutes skated in 204 NHL games with St. Louis, Columbus, Vancouver, Edmonton and Dallas.

                      The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Cracknell established career-highs in games played (69), goals (10), assists (six) and points (16) last season with the Stars. He scored his first career NHL hat trick on March 24 against San Jose.

                      --The Arizona Coyotes recalled forward Mario Kempe from the Tucson Roadrunners of the AHL and assigned center Dylan Strome to their AHL affiliate.

                      Kempe, 29, recorded 34 points (14 goals, 20 assists) and 28 penalty minutes in 56 games with Vityaz Podolsk of the Kontinental Hockey League last season. The 6-foot, 185-pound native of Kramfors, Sweden, had one goal and two assists in one game with Tucson this season. Kempe was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fifth round of the 2007 draft.

                      Strome, 20, has skated in two games with the Coyotes this season, averaging 12:09 of ice time. The 6-3, 187-pound native of Mississauga, Ontario, was drafted by the Coyotes third overall in 2015. Strome has an assist in nine career NHL games.

                        Tuesday’s six-pack

                        — Oregon State football coach Gary Anderson walked away from the school Monday, leaving $12.630,555 on the table. Chances are the story is not that simple.

                        — This is the 7th straight season Oklahoma’s football team lost a game when they were favored by double digits in that game.

                        — Minnesota Twins smartly gave manager Paul Molitor a 3-year contract extension.

                        — If I ran baseball for 24 hours, I’d ban coaches/managers from visiting the mound.

                        — Knicks’ Michael Beasley is 28— Knicks are his 6th NBA team, with 56+ games played at 4 of his other 5 stops.

                        — ESPN isn’t holding its 24-hour college hoop marathon this year; sounds like a 1-year thing, with the 16-team PK80 event in Oregon a one-time event honoring Nike’s Phil Knight.

                        ****************************

                        Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……..

                        13) Connie Hawkins was the first basketball player I can remember palming the ball, just holding it in his hand like it was a softball. He had huge hands and was a great player— the Phoenix Suns jumped from 16-66 in their expansion season to 39-43 in his first NBA season, then 48-34 and 49-33 the next two years.

                        12) Suns lost a coinflip with the Milwaukee Bucks for the first pick in the 1969 NBA Draft- the Bucks took Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, one of 3 or 4 best players of all-time. Suns took a center from Florida named Neal Walk with the #2 pick, but the NBA also awarded them to rights to Hawkins, who played a couple years in the ABA after being wrongly banned from the NBA after a point-shaving investigation that never implicated him— he sued the NBA and collected $1.3M from the league, which was a boatload of money in the late 60’s.

                        11) Hawkins passed away over the weekend at age 75; he was Dr J before Dr J and ESPN— if he played today, he’d have a huge sneaker deal and would be on highlight shows every night. I’m trying to think of a modern comparison to him— Giannis Antetokounmpo comes to mind. Big wingspan, rangy, fun to watch.

                        As a little kid just learning basketball, Hawkins was great fun to watch. RIP, sir.

                        Elsewhere in the world……..
                        10) Alex, I’d like “Career Suicide for $200″, please: Miami Dolphins’ offensive line coach quit Monday after a video was released on social media showing him snorting a white powdery substance. Dolphins have scored three TD’s on 42 drives in their 2-2 start; this genius was making between $2.5M-$3M a year as a freakin’ assistant coach.

                        25 years as an NFL assistant coach; hope he saved some of that money.

                        9) Watched the Celtics-76ers preseason game Friday night; Sixers’ TV guys said the goal for Ben Simmons this year was “70% from the foul line.” Say what?

                        Simmons shot 67% from the line at LSU two years ago; the goal should be 75% or 80%, not 70%; what did he do all last year when he wasn’t playing? Should’ve been working on his shot, yes?

                        He can really pass the ball, he is a high-level passer, but he has to develop a pull-up jumper to make defenses respect him, which takes a defender out of passing lanes. He picked up at least two charging fouls against the Celtics.

                        Simmons is still a young guy (21) but if he wants to be a great player, his shooting has to improve.

                        8) UCLA held a outdoor practice at Venice Beach over the weekend; it is good to live in southern California. UNLV held an outdoor practice in downtown Vegas last year; its a cool gimmick to get the fanbase interested.

                        I’m curious to see UCLA without Lonzo Ball this year; he made all his teammates a lot better. They’re not going to get as many open looks this year without Ball running the offense.

                        7) Houston Rockets were sold this summer for $2.2B, thats how profitable NBA teams are now, with the worldwide appeal of the league.

                        6) Why the Sacramento Kings are almost always bad:

                        They had the 20th pick in the NBA Draft in June, and took Duke’s Harry Giles, who when he was a 9th grader, was the #1 player in the high school Class of 2016, but then he tore his ACL, MCL and meniscus in his left knee in 2013, then his ACL in his right knee in 2015..

                        In his one year at Duke, he averaged 3.9 ppg in 11.5 mpg, hardly numbers for a first round draft pick, but the Kings being the Kings, used the 20th pick on him.

                        Now Sacramento says Giles is out until at least January, to “improve his overall health.” Oy.

                        5) Sacramento’s record the last 10 years:
                        33-49, 38-44, 17-65, 25-57, 24-58, 22-44, 28-54 (twice), 29-53, 33-49, 32-50.

                        4) 76ers gave Joel Embiid a 5-year, $148M contract extension; he played 25.4 mpg in 31 games LY, scoring 20.2 ppg, grabbing 7.8 rpg. Missing 51 games is a red flag; wonder what kind of games played incentives are in the contract.

                        Embiid scored 11.2 ppg in 23.1 mpg in his one season at Kansas, then sat out his first two years in the NBA with injuries- he is 23 years old.

                        3) Big 14’s conference basketball tournament is leaving the midwest and is headed to Manhattan in March; thats New York City, not Manhattan, Kansas.

                        Because the Big East has Madison Square Garden in Championship week, the Big 14 agreed to have its tournament a week earlier than normal, which means their teams will all play a couple of conference games the first week in June, to make up for the week the league loses in March due to moving the tournament up.

                        This is a 5-game stretch of Indiana’s schedule in late November/early December:
                        Nov 29- Duke, Dec 2- @ Minnesota, Dec 4- Iowa, Dec 9- @ Louisville, Dec 16- Notre Dame. Tough stretch of games for the Hoosiers.

                        2) Washington State football coach Mike Leach played rugby, not football, in his college days at BYU. He is one of only four I-A head coaches who didn’t play college football.

                        BYU had great passing teams in those days; Leach credits LaVell Edwards for having a big influence on the Air Raid offense Leach runs now.

                        1) Baseball playoffs:
                        Astros 5, Red Sox 4— Houston moves on to ALDS, using Justin Verlander in relief.
                        Cubs 2, Nationals 1— Chicago takes 2-1 lead in this series.
