While the New England Patriots’ contest against the Miami Dolphins ended in the worst possible way — you may have heard it by now: with seven seconds left the team gave up a 69-yard game-deciding touchdown — not all was bad. The team had multiple self-inflicted errors and made boneheaded plays even before the collapse at the end Danny Shelton Color Rush Jersey , yes, but there also was a lot to like over the first 59 minutes and 53 seconds on Sunday.One thing that stood out in particular was the contributions made by three of the Patriots’ in-season acquisitions: wide receiver Josh Gordon as well as special teamers Albert McClellan and Ramon Humber all played important roles, and helped New England be in the lead when the football was snapped on the defense’s 48th and final play. Of the three, only one was already with the team the last time it played the Dolphins.New England’s first meeting with Miami in week four was Gordon’s first game with the club after it acquired him via trade from the Cleveland Browns. Since his two-catch, 32-yard performance in September, the wideout has grown into a legitimate threat in the Patriots’ offense and one of the team’s top two wide receivers alongside Julian Edelman. The Dolphins witnessed it firsthand yesterday as Gordon caught five passes for 96 yards.Despite his stellar stat-line, the 27-year old receiver had a relatively quiet day when compared to Albert McClellan. The Patriots signed the 32-year old as a free agent in early November, a week after he was let go by the Baltimore Ravens, and quickly turned him into a core special teamer: over the first four games of his tenure with the club, McClellan was on the field for almost two thirds of special teams snaps.While being a regular in the kicking game, McClellan’s contributions — such is the nature of his role — tended to fly under the radar a bit. Yesterday, however, he thrust himself into the spotlight in spectacular fashion. In the late first quarter, the veteran burst through the line on a punt attempt and blocked the kick. Late in the second period, McClellan repeated the feat: he penetrated the A-gap and quickly got to punter Matt Haack to deflect the punt.McClellan’s two blocks led to seven Patriots points (it could have been more had the team’s offense not botched the final play of the first half) as he came up big twice and each time helped turn momentum rapidly towards New England. While it ultimately was not enough for the Patriots to come away from the game victoriously, McClellan can still look back positively on his individual performance — one that might earn him AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.Ramon Humber, who was brought on board as a free agent one week after the McClellan-signing, had a comparatively quiet game. But even though he did not post the same numbers as Gordon or McClellan Montee Ball Color Rush Jersey , he still played a pivotal role in the kicking game: not only did he catch the football after the first blocked punt and returned it six yards, he also was on the field for 20 of 32 special teams snaps — helping limit the impact of a stellar Dolphins return unit.In the end, the Patriots received solid performances from the three in-season acquisitions yesterday. And despite the devastating loss, this is one positive New England and the three players themselves can take from the game despite it ending in disappointment. LAS VEGAS (AP) — Thousands of football fans from around the country converge at Las Vegas casinos every February to place their bets on the Super Bowl’s winner, MVP, first touchdown scorer and hundreds of other outcomes. They cheer, boo and hold their breath as they watch every moment of the game at sportsbooks, VIP parties and other gatherings.If they’re lucky, they then get in long lines to cash out.That enthusiasm is worth hundreds of millions of dollars to Las Vegas, and for the first time Sunday, it will face legal competition outside Nevada as casinos in seven more states have opened sportsbooks since the U.S. Supreme Court issued a relevant ruling in May. But the race for the betting dollars is not worrying officials or casino operators. This Super Bowl, they say, will be business as usual. Their confidence comes from the magnetism of Las Vegas: Storied casinos, superb hospitality and dining, plus a growing list of world-class entertainment options that together create the Sin City vibe that draws millions every year. Seldom do people come to this desert oasis nowadays exclusively to bet.”People come to Vegas for four-five hours around the Super Bowl, but they come for a lot more to fill the other 48 hours that they are here in town for that weekend,” said Jay Rood, who heads sports betting operations for MGM Resorts International. “I really don’t think that Vegas https://www.patriotsfanstore.com/Malcom-Brown-Jersey , or Nevada, has anything to worry about in the future. I think it’s only going to increase our customer base and probably deliver more people to our doorstep.”Tourism officials expect 306,000 people to travel to Las Vegas for Super Bowl weekend, with a projected economic impact of $426 million. The figures from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority represent a $1.4 million year-over-year increase in economic impact with about the same number of visitors.Gamblers wagered a record $158.6 million on the big game at Nevada’s nearly 200 sportsbooks last year, over $20.1 million more than in 2017. But the sportsbooks made a profit of only about $1.2 million, as some reported six- and seven-figure losses in part because of a seemingly deep-pocketed mystery bettor.Nevada’s effective monopoly on sports betting ended last spring, when the Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on that form of gambling. Casinos in seven other states — Rhode Island, Delaware, Mississippi, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and New Mexico— are accepting wagers on the game between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams. And by 2020, the list could be longer with lawmakers in two dozen states thinking about allowing sports betting.The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, which is responsible for promoting the destination, estimates that 93.5 percent of the city’s roughly 147,000 available rooms will be booked this weekend.”In addition to weather that’s better than most of the country right now, we have so many other amenities you can build out a full weekend,” said Jacqueline Peterson Shaq Mason Color Rush Jersey , the authority’s chief communications officer. “Yes, you can sit down and watch the big game and have a great time. But before and after, we have the best clubs and bars and restaurants in the world. Some amazing shows are in town this weekend.”Lady Gaga, American rock band ZZ Top, George Strait and Van Morrison are among those with shows scheduled.MGM Resorts anticipates the majority of its Las Vegas Strip properties will be sold out. Rood said he has already taken several six-figure wagers and anticipated he will get three or four wagers topping $1 million each. He expects Rams supporters from nearby southern California to start showing up in Las Vegas by Friday afternoon.MGM and the Westgate Las Vegas casino-hotel had the Patriots as 2 1/2-point favorite Thursday.The Westgate Las Vegas casino-hotel expects to be at capacity, too. It will host a gathering for 1,200 of its VIP customers, a private event for over 2,000 people and a party for about 1,500 people that’s open to the public at the theater where Elvis Presley once performed. A satellite betting station will be centrally placed to allow partygoers to bet without missing much of the game.Longtime Las Vegas oddsmaker Jay Kornegay believes bettors in Nevada will set another record this year. He said some of the big bettors have made arrangements to wire money ahead of the game, with 80 to 85 percent of all the bets historically coming in the last two days before the game.”It’s an important weekend for us, and when I say us, I’m talking about the city of Las Vegas because we have to put on our best show to keep them coming back not just for next year’s game, but throughout the entire year,” said Kornegay, the Westgate’s vice president of race and sports book operations. “It’s all hands on deck throughout the entire city.”
