The Seahawks’ 2018 schedule was going to be tough enough given the sudden rise of their rivals in the NFC West. But the presence of the NFC North and the AFC West on Seattle’s 2018 regular-season schedule makes it that much tougher.
The good news for the Seahawks as they look over their schedule for 2018: Most of their toughest opponents have to travel to Seattle. And one of their “away” opponents in 2018, the Raiders, will meet them in London for an October showdown. Neither West Coast team will be happy about that haul.
Flacco, 33, has struggled since winning the Super Bowl six seasons ago, throwing 98 touchdowns and 74 interceptions. His passer rating of 82.1 ranks No. 36 in the NFL over that span.
This could potentially be Flacco’s final season in Baltimore. The Ravens can create $18.5 million in cap space in 2019 by designating him as a post-June 1 cut.
“You can’t make a lot of assumptions like that,” Harbaugh said. “The Patriots drafted a quarterback and traded him. You take it one year at a time in this league. Predict the future and say what’s going to happen down the road, nobody knows.
“We have a great quarterback in Joe Flacco. There’s no doubt about it. So you want to put as many good football players on your football team as you possibly can. If you get a chance to get a talent like this, I don’t think you can pass it up. It doesn’t say anything other than we got better as a football team.”
The settlement proposal comes after Davis and Ware allegedly faced discrimination in the workplace. Davis was fired from the Saints’ cheerleading squad after posting what the team considered to be a racy photo on Instagram. She filed a complaint saying the organization has different standards for women and men.
Ware also filed a complaint against the Dolphins alleging she was subjected to discrimination based on her gender and religious beliefs.
“You always want more ball movement and we can get better ball movement,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “I have to look at [the film] and see if we got what we wanted. I thought their defense was into us and made it tough for us.”
On the heels of an 18-4 Washington run in the third quarter, just after Lowry settled the indigestion with a driving layup, and-1, Raptors guard DeRozan gathered his teammates before Lowry walked to the line and told them, “We need to keep moving.” Valanciunas had been late on a screen during the previous possession, and the gears were grinding.
