Tacleando la NFL: Semana 7
Por Daniel "Mr. Clutch" Mercado Castro
Los Broncos dominaron 45-10 a los Cardinals para abrir la 7ma semana de NFL. Case Keenum y Emmanuel Sanders lanzaron cada uno un TD. Sanders fue el que recibió el de Keenum. Chris Harris Jr. y Todd Davis convirtieron intercepciones a Josh Rosen en TD. El "Bye" de la semana se lo llevaron los Packers, Raiders, Steelers y Seahawks. Los Chiefs abusaron 45-10 de los Bengals con 4 TD lanzados de Patrick Mahomes. Kareem Hunt corrió para un TD y recibió dos. Los Titans fallaron una conversión de dos puntos, en vez de patear para un punto, lo que le costó la victoria 20-19 ante los Chargers. Philip Rivers lanzó dos TD en el triunfo. Tom Brady lanzó 3 TD, 2 a las manos de James White en la victoria 38-31 de los Patriots sobre los Bears. Andrew Luck lanzó 4 TD, 2 a las seguras manos de TY Hilton, en la victoria 37-5 de sus Colts sobre los Bills. Matthew Stafford lanzó dos TD a las manos de Michael Roberts, y LeGarrette Blount anotó un rush TD, en el triunfo 32-21 de los Lions sobre los Dolphins. Kirk Cousins lanzó dos TD y Latavius Murray corrió para dos TD, en el triunfo 37-17 de los Vikings sobre los Jets. Cam Newton lanzó dos TD en el cuarto parcial que ganaron 21-0 para venir de atrás y derrotar 21-17 a los Eagles. Curtis Samuel aportó un rush TD clave para la victoria.

Catanzaro Chandler pateo como una mula un field goal de 59 yardas para darle la victoria 26-23 a los Buccaneers sobre los Browns. Baker Mayfield hizo todo lo posible para darle la victoria a los Browns con dos TD lanzados, incluyendo el del empate a 23 faltando 2:28 de juego. Un TD lanzado de Deshaun Watson junto a un rush TD de Lamar Miller le dieron el triunfo 20-7 a los Texans sobre los Jaguars. Drew Brees no tan solo llegó a los 500 TD lanzados, si no que con sus dos TD lanzados al fin pudo derrotar a los Ravens por marcador 24-23. Brees ha vencido a cada equipo de la NFL. Los Rams siguen invictos al vencer 39-10 a los 49ers con dos TD lanzados de Jared Goff junto a un TD recibido y otro rush de Todd Gurley II. Los Redskins vencieron 20-17 a los Cowboys gracias a un fumble return en TD de Preston Smith. En el clásico juego del lunes, Matt Ryan lanzó un TD y Tevin Coleman corrió para un TD en el triunfo 23-20 de los Falcons sobre los Giants. Giorgio Tavecchio aportó tres field goals a la victoria.

NFL and TAPS to Host Military Families in London
​FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
10/25/18
NFL AND TAPS TO HOST MILITARY FAMILIES IN LONDON
Bereaved Families of Fallen Heroes Connect During Healing Weekend and
Attend Eagles-Jaguars Game at Wembley Stadium
The NFL and its military nonprofit partner, the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors(TAPS), which provides care for families of fallen American military service members, will host an exclusive experience for surviving military families in London which will culminate with the Eagles-Jaguars game at Wembley Stadium on October 28. Families from the United States and United Kingdom will come together to connect and build a stronger community.
U.K. families from Scotty's Little Soldiers, a local organization that brings comfort and care to bereaved children of military parents, will join American families for the weekend. The Diana Award and KPMG will host surviving families at a kickoff dinner with BONNIE CARROLL, TAPS President and Founder. Activities throughout the weekend include a visit to the U.S. Embassy, a private tour of the Althorp Estate, the childhood home of Princess Diana, and a dinner on base with the Royal Corps of Signals. Surviving children and young adults will also participate in a series of workshops led by The Diana Award, an organization founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales and dedicated to the belief that young people have the power to better the world.
Families will attend the Eagles' practice on Saturday and participate in a meet-and-greet with players and coaches. The weekend experience concludes with the Eagles-Jaguars game on Sunday.
"TAPS is so grateful to the NFL for their continued support of the families of America's fallen military heroes," said BONNIE CARROLL, TAPS President and Founder. "It's an extraordinary experience to bring together American and British military families whose loved ones stood shoulder-to-shoulder when called upon to defend their freedoms. Partnerships with organizations like Scotty's Little Soldiers and The Diana Award help to create international reconciliation and connections of hope, healing and care."
"This weekend is a great opportunity to unite survivors on both sides of the Atlantic to honor their loved ones," said NFL Senior Vice President of Social Responsibility ANNA ISAACSON. "The NFL is proud to support TAPS as they continue their incredible work in the United States and extend support to families abroad."
The NFL and TAPS partnership offers families the opportunity to come together around football, extend their network of support and move forward on their grief journey. Participating American TAPS families includes surviving children and spouses. Some of the families' fallen loved ones served or died in the U.K., while others participating have special connections to the Eagles or Jaguars. These families will have the chance to share their stories with British surviving family members and create new memories as they work through their grief and honor their loved ones together.

NOTAS DE LA NFL DE LA OCTAVA SEMANA 
LA NFL LLEGA A LA OCTAVA SEMANA CUANDO LA TEMPORADA 2018 SE APROXIMA A SU PUNTO MEDIO
Cuando la temporada se aproxima al punto medio, las posiciones siguen apretadas en toda la liga, justo en el momento en el que los equipos van cerrando el mes de octubre. Ingresando en la octava semana, hay 18 equipos con porcentaje de triunfos de .500 o mejor y 14 clubes tienen marca ganadora. Desde 1990, 297 de los 336 equipos que llegaron a la postemporada (el 88 por ciento) tuvieron registro ganador habiéndose jugado siete partidos
A lo largo de las primeras siete semanas de la temporada, 25 equipos tienen al menos tres victorias. Cinco equipos –
KANSAS CITY (6-1), los LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (5-2), los LOS ANGELES RAMS (7-0), NEW ENGLAND (5-2) y NEW ORLEANS (5-1)– tienen al menos cinco triunfos esta temporada. Desde 1990, cuando el actual formato de postemporada de 12 equipos fue adoptado, el 80 por ciento (205 de 256) de los anteriores equipos que arrancaron 5-2 o mejor terminaron clasificando a la postemporada, incluyendo ocho de los nueve equipos al comenzar la temporada 5-2 o mejor en 2017.
U
n arranque lento, de todas formas, no significa que no haya esperanzas. Han habido 39 equipos desde 1990 con registro de .500 o peor tras siete partidos y que igualmente clasificaron a la postemporada.
L
os Rams, que están 7-0 por primera vez desde 1985, lideran la liga en diferencial de puntos (+107), se ubica tercero promediando 33.6 puntos por partido y cuarto en puntos permitidos por juego (18.3). El corredor de Los Angeles TODD GURLEY, que registró tres anotaciones (dos acarreando, una recibiendo) en la séptima semana, lidera la NFL con 14 anotaciones esta temporada y es el tercer jugador diferente en la historia de la NFL con al menos 14 anotaciones en los primeros siete partidos de su equipo al arrancar una temporada, uniéndose al miembro del Salón de la Fama JIM BROWN (15 en 1958) y a PRIEST HOLMES (14 en 2002 y 14 en 2004). Defensivamente, el tackle defensivo de los Rams AARON DONALD lidera la liga con ocho capturas y es uno de los tres jugadores en la NFL con al menos 10 tacleadas para pérdida de yardas en 2018 (10).
La NFL ingresa a la octava semana luego de otro emocionante fin de semana. A lo largo de las primeras siete semanas de la temporada, 
61 partidos fueron decididos por una anotación, la segunda mayor cantidad en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de la séptima semana (62 partidos en 2012), incluyendo siete de esa clase de juegos la semana pasada. Treinta y tres de esos partidos fueron decididos por tres o menos puntos, la segunda mayor cantidad en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de la séptima semana (39 juegos en 1999), incluyendo cinco de esa clase de juegos la semana pasada. Al menos un partido llegó a la prórroga en cada una de las primeras siete semanas de la temporada 2018, marcando la primera vez desde que la regla de la prórroga en temporada regular fue instituida, en 1974, que hay un partido definido en la prórroga en cada una de las primeras siete semanas de una temporada.
Debajo siguen los destacados del cronograma de la octava semana
:
L
a octava semana arranca el jueves por la noche (8:20 PM, hora de New York, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon Prime), cuando los MIAMI DOLPHINS viajan al estadio NRG para vérselas con los HOUSTON TEXANS en una batalla entre equipos de la AFC con marca de 4-3. El corredor de los Dolphins FRANK GORE tiene 18,087 yardas desde la línea de golpeo en su carrera de 14 años en la NFL y necesita 104 yardas desde la línea de golpeo para superar al miembro del Salón de la Fama BARRY SANDERS (18,190) para la sexta mayor cantidad en la historia de la liga. El ala defensiva de los Texans J.J. WATT tiene siete capturas en sus últimos cinco partidos y es uno de dos jugadores de la NFL (VON MILLER) con al menos siete capturas (siete) y cuatro balones sueltos forzados (cuatro) esta temporada.
La Serie de Londres 2018 concluye el domingo por la mañana (9:30 AM ET, NFL Network), cuando los
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES se encuentran con los JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS en el estadio de Wembley. Los Eagles están teniendo su primera aparición en Londres, mientras que los Jaguars jugarán en el Reino Unido para sexta temporada consecutiva. El mariscal de campo de Jacksonville BLAKE BORTLES lanzó cuatro pases anotadores en el último partidos de los Jaguars en Londres (24 de septiembre de 2017 contra Baltimore) y es uno de tres mariscales de campo en la NFL desde 2014 con al menos 15,000 yardas aéreas (16,663) y 1,500 yardas por tierra (1,628), uniéndose al de Carolina CAM NEWTON y al de Seattle RUSSELL WILSON. El mariscal de campo de los Eagles CARSON WENTZ completó 30 de 37 pases (el 81.1 por ciento) para 310 yardas, con dos anotaciones, ninguna intercepción e índice de pasador de 119.6 en el triunfo de Philadelphia de la séptima semana frente a Carolina.
Los 
DENVER BRONCOS y los KANSAS CITY CHIEFS se enfrentan en el estadio Arrowhead en un duelo de la AFC Oeste (1:00 PM, hora de New York, CBS). En la cuarta semana, el mariscal de campo de los Chiefs PATRICK MAHOMES lanzó 304 yardas con dos anotaciones (una pasando, una acarreando) y el corredor KAREEM HUNT acarreó 121 yardas, incluyendo una anotación de cuatro yardas que les dio la ventaja con 1:39 por jugarse en el último período en la victoria de Kansas City 27-23 en Denver. Mahomes, que jugó ocho partidos en su carrera, lidera la NFL con 22 pases anotadores y la semana pasada superó al miembro del Salón de la Fama KURT WARNER (21) para la mayor cantidad de pases anotadores por un jugador en los primeros ocho juegos de su carrera en la historia de la liga. En el triunfo de Denver de la séptima semana en Arizona, el receptor de los Broncos EMMANUEL SANDERS (102 yardas recibiendo, una recepción anotadora y un pase anotador) se convirtió en el octavo jugador en la historia de la liga con al menos 100 yardas recibiendo, alguna recepción anotadora y un pase de anotación en un mismo partido y el segundo jugador en lograr tal hazaña esta temporada (ODELL BECKHAM JR. en la quinta semana).
El domingo por la noche tendrá la revancha de la vuelta Divisional de la NFC 2017 entre los 
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS y los MINNESOTA VIKINGS en el estadio U.S. Bank de Minneapolis (8:20 PM, hora de New York, NBC). En ese duelo, el ex mariscal de campo de los Vikings CASE KEENUM se conectó con el receptor STEFON DIGGS en un pase anotador de 61 yardas cuando el reloj expiraba en el último período, dándole a Minnesota la victoria 29-24 y consiguiendo así un boleto para el Juego de Campeonato de la NFC. El mariscal de campo de los Saints DREW BREES lidera la NFL con un porcentaje de pases completos de 77.3 (170 pases completos en 220 intentos) e índice de pasador de 121.6, y tiene 13 pases anotadores sin intercepción alguna esta temporada. El mariscal de campo de los Vikings KIRK COUSINS se ubica tercero en la NFL con 2,162 yardas aéreas y quinto con un porcentaje de pases completos de 70.0 (210 de 300), uniéndose al de Atlanta MATT RYAN como los único mariscales de campo con al menos 2,000 yardas aéreas y un porcentaje de pases completos de 70 o más esta temporada.

Week 8 Weekly Preview 
NFL ENTERS WEEK 8 AS 2018 SEASON APPROACHES MIDPOINT
As the season approaches the halfway point, the standings remain tight throughout the league as teams close out the month of October. Entering Week 8, there are 18 teams with a .500 or better winning percentage and 14 clubs with a winning record. Since 1990, 297 of the league’s 336 playoff teams (88 percent) had a winning record through seven games
Through the first seven weeks of the season, 25 teams have at least three wins. Five teams – KANSAS CITY (6-1), the LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (5-2), the LOS ANGELES RAMS (7-0), NEW ENGLAND (5-2) and NEW ORLEANS (5-1) – have at least five wins this season. Since 1990, when the current 12-team playoff format was adopted, 80 percent (205 of 256) of the previous teams to start 5-2 or better advanced to the postseason, including eight of the nine teams to begin the season 5-2 or better in 2017.
A slow start, however, does not mean that hope is gone. There have been 39 teams since 1990 with a .500 or lower record after seven games to advance to the postseason.
The Rams, who are 7-0 for the first time since 1985, lead the league in point differential (+107), rank third averaging 33.6 points per game and fourth in points allowed per game (18.3). Los Angeles running back TODD GURLEY, who scored three touchdowns (two rushing, one receiving) in Week 7, leads the NFL with 14 touchdowns this season and is the third different player in NFL history with at least 14 touchdowns in his team's first seven games to start a season, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer JIM BROWN (15 in 1958) and PRIEST HOLMES (14 in 2002 and 14 in 2004). Defensively, Rams defensive tackle AARON DONALD leads the league with eight sacks and is one of three players in the NFL with at least 10 tackles for loss in 2018 (10).
The NFL enters Week 8 following another exciting weekend of action. Through the first seven weeks of the season, 61 games have been decided by one score, the second-most in NFL history through Week 7 (62 games in 2012), including seven such games last week. Thirty-three of those games have been decided by three or fewer points, the second-most in NFL history through Week 7 (39 games in 1999), including five such games last week. At least one game has gone to overtime in each of the first seven weeks of the 2018 season, marking the first time since the regular-season overtime rule was instituted in 1974 that there has been an overtime game in each of a season’s first seven weeks.

NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL NEWS CONFERENCE - 2018 FALL MEETING
​​
NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL NEWS CONFERENCE​
2018 FALL MEETING – NEW YORK – OCTOBER 17, 2018
Roger Goodell: Good afternoon. We covered a great deal over the last couple of days. I'm sure you'll have plenty of questions and I'll be happy to answer those.
The focus was on the competition and the game itself. The quality of the games that we are having, the quality and the closeness of the competition, the extraordinary play of the offenses which are at historic highs for the NFL. There are also the future stars, so many good young players establishing themselves very quickly as great players and the excitement that comes with that.
In addition, we see all the fan metrics follow that. They are all very strong and showing tremendous growth, which I think is a reflection of the quality of the game itself and the play of our players and the work of our coaches.
I will leave you with something that I have said to the owners many times. I don't think there has been a better time to be an NFL fan. The quality of the games and the enjoyment that comes with that, I hear it from the fans all the time – that is number one for them. Number two, is the access to the games and the way that fans are able to engage with the NFL. There are more platforms and more opportunities to do that. The experience is better because of technology. All of that creates a much better opportunity for our fans to enjoy football and NFL football.
From our standpoint, we look at this as a great moment for us – the tremendous growth and the tremendous popularity of our game. I am happy to take your questions.
On the anthem policy and the negotiations with the NFLPA:
RG: The focus of both the NFLPA and the NFL, the clubs and our players has been to focus on the effort of the players on the issues they have raised and how can make their communities better. They are incredibly passionate about that. They have brought these issues greater awareness and they are working in their communities to try to make them better. They are working on issues, such as criminal justice reform. I have been on Listen and Learn tours with players, owners have been on Listen and Learns. The players are out there as well, and we can see the tremendous work that they are doing. We have reported over the last two days on the tremendous work that is being done in that area. Most importantly, we talked about the impact that our clubs and players are having working to address these issues. That is where our focus is right now, as it should be.
On the new LA stadium and the league helping the Chargers build a fan base in LA, differences between visits to LA last year as compared to this year:
RG: The biggest difference between last year's visits and this year's visits is the stadium. I had the chance to go through the stadium two weeks ago. It is extraordinary in every sense of the word. It's going to set a new standard for stadiums on a global basis. I am confident it will be known as not only the best stadium, but also the best complex in the world. That excitement is going to build as we get closer, as we are still two years away. There is lots of football and lots of building still to do. We were out of the market for a long time. We have to earn our way back with our fans. We have to build that relationship back with our fans and make sure that we do it right. Both teams are committed to that and it will be something that we will have to work at over time. They both have very exciting teams and that will be helpful also. All of those things will come together over the next two years.
On Jerry Jones mentioning to media that there has been a lot of discussion at these meetings about officiating and how roughing the passer is being officiated:
RG: Well that wasn't the case on the floor, just to be clear. There was very little discussion about that. We spoke about it on several occasions in the context of what the Competition Committee was looking to propose, how it was implemented, and how our officials adjust to the game, as well as the players, adjust to those rules. I think there was a very strong view from the Competition Committee, and all of us. I believe the ownership will listen. They always want consistency in officiating. But, you are going to have calls that are not always going to be clear. We are going to have multiple angles and slow motion and those are things that get debated. But, the focus of trying to protect defenseless players, which includes quarterbacks, is something that is very important.  There is a strong commitment to do that. We have to make sure our officials see the entire play. We want to make sure that the defensive players are implementing techniques that we've identified in a way to try to move to the side, try to brace yourself so that you are not putting the quarterbacks in harms way. Those are the things that we've focused on and I think we made a great adjustment. I think we are seeing the impact. We have had a lot of discussion, as you know.  But I don't think it has been the fan focus. They are focusing on football and focusing on the great play and the great play of the quarterbacks. I think fans want to see the quarterbacks play. But we all want to protect our players. The safety of the game is better, the quality of the game is better, and I think that is how we see these issues.
On ratings being higher that before: 
RG: It's deeper than just ratings.  The media world is changing dramatically. The way fans engage and view the game is not simply watching on television anymore, obviously. And we see that ratings identify that, they do it sit in front of the television, at least to watch NFL football. We are one of the few, if any, content that is actually growing an audience. So yes, that is obviously encouraging. But, it is much broader than that. It is how do we use these other platforms to engage our fans to allow them to experience NFL football. They are watching on their tablets, they are watching on their phones. This year for the first time, with Verizon and Yahoo, we offered the NFL app across carriers. The Verizon subscriber and AT&T, or Sprint or T-Mobile, on any carrier, you can get any NFL game on your phone. That is an extraordinary service. The ability for our fans to get NFL football at any point, on any device. So, we keep looking deeper at that. I also believe that the quality of the games obviously is a big driver to all of this. The quality of the stars. I think we see so many players playing at high levels, and teams playing at an incredibly high level and the competitiveness of our league. All of those things are contributing factors. Last year we made the point that there is no one single factor, there are multiple factors. We don't dismiss any of them, we look at all of them and see what we can do to improve them.
On high scoring games, the more points the better or do we need to bring some defense back?
RG: There have also been some defensive games that were low scoring where we saw the defenses play well. But, you always have ebbs and flows and the kind of adjustments that go on throughout the league.  That is constant. I think there is no question that fans like to see great play at the highest level, but they also love to see defense. We look at the overall competitiveness of the league. When you see points go up as much as they have gone up to historic levels, to still see the competitiveness of the game and the margin of victory, - I think it is has only happened three or four times in our history of close to 100 years that we have had such a low margin of victory. That's extraordinary. That type of scoring and quality of play is exciting. 
On the progress the league has made regarding social justice initiatives and the impact that has had on your relationship with the NFLPA and the players: 
RG: Well, as I said earlier, the focus has been on Listen and Learn, understanding what the players want to accomplish in their community, the impact they want to have and supporting them.  Our clubs have done that on historic levels and I'm proud of what our clubs are doing. I'm proud of what our players are doing. We are all trying to work together to address those issue. That always helps make relationships more productive when there is respect and dialogue and understanding and an agreement to work together and try to make things better.
When you have people working together and listening to one another and that level of respect, I think everyone feels better and that's important. But, the key thing is that there is a lot of work to be done.  Obviously, we talked a lot about what's going on on the field and how successful that has been, and I think we are also having similar success off the field. We are trying to help players and our clubs address the issues in the communities that they are concerned about.
On the cross-ownership vote:
RG: It is something that has been debated in this league, I've spent 38 years in this business, and I think it has been debated throughout those 38 years. And the ownership policies, on a consistent basis, are debated to make sure that we are doing everything possible to attract the best ownership into the league and also to maintain the quality of the ownership.  But we also want to continue to do that and dynamics are changing. There are owners that are owning franchises across multiple leagues and that is happening more frequently, and I think the ownership looked at this and said that we don't see a competitive disadvantage as a league to having cross-ownership and we should open this up and allow others to come in and if they have experience in other leagues, that could be an advantage.
On the future of the Seahawks:
RG: We didn't have any discussion about it. We think it is inappropriate at this point in time to be having those kinds of discussions. The Seahawks have made plans. Paul Allen had made plans. At the appropriate time, those plans will be discussed.  
On an update as to where the Oakland Raiders will play in 2019:
RG: No, there isn't. As you know, they are negotiating. We didn't get an update on that. We did get an update on the Las Vegas stadium from the Raiders, and the Rams and Chargers in Los Angeles. We did not have any discussion on that, but we know they are negotiating and we hope that will get resolved soon.

​​​​​​MÁS EMOCIONES DEPARA LA NFL AL LLEGAR A SU SÉPTIMA SEMANA
La NFL llega a la séptima semana luego de otro emocionante fin de semana de acción. En la sexta semana, nueve de los 15 partidos fueron decididos por una anotación (ocho puntos o menos), incluyendo tres juegos –el triunfo en la prórroga de los MIAMI DOLPHINS contra Chicago, la victoria de los NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS contra Kansas City en el clásico de domingo por la noche y el triunfo de los GREEN BAY PACKERS sobre San Francisco el lunes por la noche en el clásico Monday Night Football­– mediante goles de campo definitorios cuando el reloj expiraba en el último período o en la prórroga. Doce duelos esta temporada fueron ganados en la última jugada del partido, empatando la tercera mayor cantidad a lo largo de las primeras seis semanas de una temporada desde 2003.
A lo largo de las primeras seis semanas de la temporada, 54 partidos fueron decididos por una anotación, empatados con la  temporada 1999 para la mayor cantidad en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de la sexta semana. Veintiocho de esos juegos fueron decididos por tres o menos puntos, la segunda mayor cantidad en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de la sexta semana (35 partidos en 1999), incluyendo cuatro de esa clase de juegos la semana pasada.
Al menos un partido llegó a la prórroga en cada una de las primeras seis semanas de la temporada 2018, marcando la primera vez desde que la regla de la prórroga en temporada regular fue instituida, en 1974, que hay un juego definido por esa vía en cada una de las primeras seis semanas de una temporada.
Cuando la temporada se acerca a su punto medio, hay actualmente 21 equipos con marca de .500 o mejor. Los LOS ANGELES RAMS (6-0) encabezan la NFC y son el único equipo invicto de la NFL, mientras que los KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (5-1) ostentan la mejor marca en la AFC. Veintiún equipos están actualmente en el primer puesto o a un partido del mismo en sus respectivas divisiones.
Anotar continúa a ritmo histórico en 2018. A lo largo de la sexta semana, han habido 504 anotaciones totales y 4,489 puntos totales, ambas mayores cantidades en la historia de la NFL a lo largo de las primeras seis semanas de una temporada

STATEMENT FROM NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL
ON THE PASSING OF PAUL ALLEN

"Paul Allen was the driving force behind keeping the NFL in the Pacific Northwest.  His vision led to the construction of CenturyLink Field and the building of a team that played in three Super Bowls, winning the championship in Super Bowl XLVIII.  The raising of the "12th Man" flag at the start of every Seahawks home game was Paul's tribute to the extraordinary fan base in the Seattle community. His passion for the game, combined with his quiet determination, led to a model organization on and off the field.  He worked tirelessly alongside our medical advisers to identify new ways to make the game safer and protect our players from unnecessary risk.  I personally valued Paul's advice on subjects ranging from collective bargaining to bringing technology to our game.  Our league is better for Paul Allen having been a part of it and the entire NFL sends its deepest condolences to Paul's family and to the Seahawks organization." ​​

THURSDAY NIGHT PREVIEW:DENVER BRONCOS AT ARIZONA CARDINALS
October 18, 2018 
Week 7 kicks off on Thursday, October 18 (8:20 PM ET, FOX/NFL Network/Amazon) when the Denver Broncos visit the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium as both teams look to rebound from Week 6 losses. 
The Broncos and Cardinals meet for the 11th time with Denver holding an 8-1-1 series advantage. In their last meeting (October 5, 2014), Broncos quarterback PEYTON MANNING passed for 479 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions for a 110.2 passer rating and wide receiver DEMARYIUS THOMAS had eight catches for a career-high 226 yards and two touchdowns in Denver’s 41-20 home victory.  
Last week, Broncos quarterback CASE KEENUM passed for 322 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for a 91.7 passer rating in the team’s loss to the Rams. Since 2017, Keenum is one of four NFL quarterbacks (KIRK COUSINSMATT RYAN and ALEX SMITH) with at least 5,000 passing yards (5,234) and a completion percentage of 66 or higher (66.1). Denver rookie linebacker BRADLEY CHUBB, the fifth-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, had a career-high 3 sacks in Week 6, while linebacker VON MILLER added 1.5 sacks. 
Arizona rookie quarterback JOSH ROSEN, who was selected No. 10 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, passed for a career-high 240 yards in the Cardinals’ Week 6 loss at Minnesota. Running back DAVID JOHNSON has scored a touchdown in four consecutive games and has at least 100 scrimmage yards in each of his past four games against the AFC. Johnson has 38 scrimmage touchdowns since 2015, trailing only TODD GURLEY (46) for the most touchdowns over the span. 

2018 NFL DRAFT GENERATES RECORD $125.2 MILLION IN ECONOMIC IMPACT FOR DALLAS REGION​
Dallas, Texas (October 15, 2018) – The first NFL Draft hosted at an NFL stadium proved to be a rousing success in both economic impact and attendance as the 2018 NFL Draft held April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium posted record numbers. According to the economic impact report compiled by VisitDallas, utilizing Destinations International's economic impact calculator, the 2018 Draft generated $125.2 million in economic impact for the Dallas region during the 3-day event and $74 million in direct spending. This marks a new record for the NFL Draft's economic impact and the first year that the NFL Draft generated more than $100 million in economic impact for its host region.
The Destinations International calculator is an industry-wide standard that enables the determination of the economic value of an event hosted by the city and its impact on the local economy based on measurements adopted by destination marketing organizations nationwide.
"The Draft in Dallas once again raised the bar for host cities for what has become one of the most- anticipated sporting events of the year," said Peter O'Reilly, NFL Senior Vice President, Events & Club Business Development. "We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Sports Commission, and all of our partners for helping to create such a memorable event for our fans, clubs, incoming players and media."
The 2018 NFL Draft attracted football fans of all ages for the largest free football festival in league history and has grown into one of the biggest sporting events of the year. A record crowd of more than 100,000 fans attended the opening day of the NFL Draft and the NFL Draft Experience on April 26, making it the highest-ever attendance for the opening day of the Draft. Overall, the 3-day event was attended by more than 200,000 fans.
"When hosting any major event, we engage all of our region to ensure the impact of the event is truly felt for years to come. We believe the NFL Draft has been one of our most successful events, specifically, from a community engagement standpoint," said Charlotte Jones Anderson, Chief Brand Officer of the Dallas Cowboys. "Not only did the news coverage of community outreach receive more than 1 billion media impressions alone - but the Draft touched more people than ever before. The NFL Draft provides one of the greatest platforms for a region to engage entire school districts, partners and communities as it's an event that, through the game beyond the field, can make all dreams come true."
"In addition, the economic impact that was created for the North Texas region is a direct reflection of the dynamic interest that the fans in Texas - and those who came here from all over the country - have for the NFL, AT&T Stadium, and the young men who were selected to be the future stars of our sport."
Data compiled from on-site attendee surveys also showed that 60.5% of all Draft attendees flew to North Texas for the events and that the local share of day visitors was 85.3%.
The NFL Fan Mobile Pass also set a record for registrants for the NFL Draft ticket lottery. More than 463,000 fans from all 50 states registered for an opportunity for free tickets to one of the three days of the Draft.
"Dallas has a great history of hosting premier sporting events and we were honored to partner with the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys to provide this opportunity for our communities," said Monica Paul, Executive Director of the Dallas Sports Commission. "From the Draft Theater inside AT&T Stadium to the NFL Draft Experience outside, to the community engagement, it was an unforgettable event for football fans from all over the country."
