Mike Evans had a fourth 1 Authentic Erik Karlsson
Jersey Kids ,000-yard season in his fourth season. It doesn’t mean he was happy with it.
The Buccaneers receiver had a career-low 1,001 yards and scored only five touchdowns, calling 2017 “maybe my second-worst” season.
“I don’t know what it was. I guess my awareness wasn’t where it should have been,” Evans said, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.
“I’ve just got to work on it more in practice and get more reps at it.”
Evans wants to improve his yards after the catch. Only 169 of Evans 1,321 receiving yards in 2016 came after the catch. It ranked as the second-worst
in the NFL among players with more than 25 catches. In 2017 Troy Apke Color Rush Jersey , Evans had only 115 yards after the catch, with his 1.62-yard average after the catch ranking
behind only Jason Witten among players with 25 receptions.
“I think last year was my worst year in YAC,” Evans said. “I’ve got another hurdle to jump over, and I think I’ll be much better this year.
I’ve got to do better in that category, and I think if I do, I’ll be the most complete receiver.”
With a week and a half left in the NHL season Dolphins Elite Jerseys , there
is plenty to be decided.
Playoff positioning, who’s in and who’s out, and standings that are in flux daily.
Two teams fighting to be in the postseason tournament face off Wednesday night in Denver. The Philadelphia Flyers (38-25-14) are coming off a 3-2
overtime loss in Dallas on Tuesday night while the Colorado Avalanche (41-27-8) lost in Vegas on Monday night.
While the Flyers are in a stronger position in the Eastern Conference — the loss put them a point ahead of Columbus for third in the Metropolitan
Division — Colorado is in a tenuous spot with six games remaining. The Avalanche have lost two of their last three games, so beating Philadelphia on
home ice is almost a must if they want to complete an incredible turnaround from a season ago.
Despite the 42-point — and counting — improvement, Colorado sits outside the playoffs after St. Louis won its sixth in a row Tuesday night. But
the Avalanche, who are a point behind the Blues and Anaheim Ducks Tyler Seguin Jersey , aren’t worrying
about what other teams are doing, they feel they control their own fate.
“You’ve got to be careful watching the scoreboard because it’s wasted emotion,” coach Jared Bednar said last week.” We’re concentrating on
what we have to do to get in and how many games we have win and how we have to prepare and how we have to play. If you start watching what everyone
else is doing you start riding an emotional roller coaster for no reason. I’d love to look at the scoreboard to see if we got help but we’re not
expecting any help. This is on us.”
The help Colorado needs is on offense. After a strong offensive start to March, things have become stagnant. The Avalanche have three regulation goals
in their last three games and leading scorer Nathan MacKinnon has been held off the scoresheet for two straight games — the first time he hasn’t
recorded a point in consecutive contests since Dec. 23 and 27.
Wednesday is the last of a three-game road trip for Philadelphia and could bring some good news. Goaltender Michael Neuvirth, who has not played since
Feb. 18 because of a lower-body injury, should be in net for the game against Colorado.
“Neuvy is getting really close DeShone Kizer Jersey
,” Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “It’s not easy for a goalie to be out so long. The hunger factor is there.
You’re hungry to play.”
Hextall also told The Inquirer that the team would most likely carry three goaltenders if Neuvirth returns.
“We have more goaltenders than defensemen,” Hextall joked to The Inquirer.
Getting back a netminder with a 2.61 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage could help the Flyers not only make the playoffs but climb in
the Metropolitan Division. With 90 points, they are two behind second-place Pittsburgh with five games left for each.
The Flyers had a chance to catch and pass the Penguins over the past two games but fell to the defending champions in overtime Sunday before losing
again in overtime Tuesday.
Philadelphia’s 14 losses after regulation are the most in the NHL this season.
