#TacleandoLaNFL Notas recientes de la NFL


Week 1 NFL Preview
​​​NFL KICKS OFF 100TH SEASON
To help celebrate the NFL’s 100th season, each week will feature an NFL100 Game of the Week. Each game will be a nod to a momentous game played, a fierce rivalry that spans decades, a matchup of original teams and/or a game in which history was made . The NFL has designated the Packers-Bears contest as the NFL100 GAME OF THE WEEK for Week 1. In arguably the league’s richest all-time rivalry, the Packers and Bears will meet for the 199th time, including the postseason, in a series that spans all 10 NFL decades. The franchises first met Nov. 27, 1921, when the eventual NFL champion Chicago Staleys shut out the Packers, 20-0, but Green Bay leads the series, 97-95-6. Combined, the two organizations have accounted for 22 world championships,13 for Green Bay, nine for Chicago (No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, all-time). The two teams have also combined to put 53 individuals in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, 28 from the Bears (No. 1 all-time) and 25 from the Packers (No. 2 all-time), with respect to those who spent the majority of their careers with a club.
Welcome to 2019. Expect new teams to earn playoff berths, a few consistent players and clubs to excel again, records to fall and young players to forge ahead as they introduce themselves to our collective excitement. It’s a familiar script, a story that has fueled the league’s popularity for 99 years. The blanks will be filled in come February.
What is known this week is that every team holds fast to a dream: Super Bowl LIV in Miami. And with history as an indication, every team has a legitimate shot.
  • THE FIELD IS OPEN: In 2018, two teams – the HOUSTON TEXANS (AFC South) and CHICAGO BEARS (NFC North) – won their divisions after finishing in last place the year before. In 15 of the past 16 seasons, at least one team finished in first place in its division the season after finishing in last or tied for last place.
    Since the NFL expanded to 32 teams in 2002, two clubs have gone “worst to first” en route to a Super Bowl victory – the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles and the 2009 New Orleans Saints.

    Since the NFL adopted the 12-team playoff format in 1990, at least four teams every season have qualified for the playoffs after failing to make the postseason the year before. Seven teams that missed the postseason in 2017 – Baltimore (10-6), Chicago (12-4), Dallas (10-6), Houston (11-5), Indianapolis (10-6), the Los Angeles Chargers (12-4) and Seattle (10-6) – earned a playoff berth in 2018.
  • MOST-EVER SUPER BOWL WINS: The NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS won their sixth Lombardi Trophy last year and begin their quest to break a tie with their Kickoff Weekend opponent, thePITTSBURGH STEELERS, for the most-ever Super Bowl victories. The AFC stalwarts clash to open Sunday Night Football (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). By winning another title this season, New England would also join Pittsburgh as the only teams to win consecutive Super Bowls on two occasions.
  • RECORDS WITHIN REACHNew Orleans quarterback DREW BREES (520) needs 20 touchdown passes and New England quarterback TOM BRADY (517) needs 23 to surpass PEYTON MANNING (539) for the most all-time. Brees (34) also needs two games of four-or-more touchdown passes to eclipse Manning (35) for the most four-touchdown games in NFL annals. And, Brees (9,783) needs 387 pass attempts to leap Pro Football Hall of Famer BRETT FAVRE(10,169) for most on the all-time list. Brady will play his 20th season with the Patriots, tying two Pro Football Hall of Famers, Washington’s DARRELL GREEN and the Rams’ JACKIE SLATER, for the second-most seasons with one franchise in NFL history. Detroit’s JASON HANSON (21) owns the league record. Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle AARON DONALD can become the first player in league history to earn three consecutive AP Defensive Player of the Year honors. With a third overall, Donald would tie J.J. WATT (2012, 2014-15) and Pro Football Hall of FamerLAWRENCE TAYLOR (1981-82, 1986) for most all-time. Buffalo Bills running back FRANK GORE(14,748) needs 522 rushing yards to surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer BARRY SANDERS(15,269) for third on the all-time list. Gore (18,544) also needs 611 yards from scrimmage to surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer MARSHALL FAULK (19,154) for fourth on the all-time list. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver LARRY FITZGERALD (1,303) needs 23 receptions to surpass Pro Football Hall of Famer TONY GONZALEZ (1,325) for second on the NFL’s all-time list. Pro Football Hall of Famer JERRY RICE (1,549) holds the career record. Fitzgerald (9) also needs 1,000 receiving yards to tie Pro Football Hall of Famer RANDY MOSS (10) for second on the NFL’s all-time list of most 1,000-yard seasons. Rice (14) holds the career record.
  • SUCCESS WITH FIRST-YEAR LEADERS: Seven teams enter this season with a new head coach, KLIFF KINGSBURY in Arizona, ZAC TAYLOR in Cincinnati, FREDDIE KITCHENS in Cleveland, VIC FANGIO in Denver, MATT LaFLEUR in Green Bay, BRIAN FLORES in Miami,ADAM GASE with the New York Jets and BRUCE ARIANS in Tampa Bay. Four rookie head coaches have led their teams to the playoffs over the last two seasons: MATT NAGY (Chicago) and FRANK REICH (Indianapolis) in 2018, and SEAN McVAY (Los Angeles Rams) and SEAN McDERMOTT (Buffalo) in 2017. Kingsbury, Kitchens, Fangio, LaFleur and Flores are all first-time head coaches in 2019.
  • FAMILIAR FACES IN NEW PLACESSeveral notable players were on the move during the offseason and preseason, including quarterbacks JOE FLACCO (Denver) and NICK FOLES(Jacksonville); running backs LE’VEON BELL (New York Jets), MARK INGRAM (Baltimore),FRANK GORE (Buffalo) and LESEAN McCOY (Kansas City); wide receivers ODELL BECKHAM JR. (Cleveland), ANTONIO BROWN (Oakland) and DeSEAN JACKSON (Philadelphia) andKENNY STILLS (Houston); tight end JARED COOK (New Orleans); tackles TRENT BROWN(Oakland) and LAREMY TUNSIL (Houston); guard RODGER SAFFOLD (Tennessee); centerMITCH MORSE (Buffalo); defensive ends EZEKIEL ANSAH (Seattle), FRANK CLARK (Kansas City), JADEVEON CLOWNEY (Seattle), TREY FLOWERS (Detroit) and CAMERON WAKE(Tennessee); defensive tackles MALIK JACKSON (Philadelphia) and GERALD McCOY(Carolina); linebackers KIKO ALONSO (New Orleans), DEE FORD (San Francisco), CLAY MATTHEWS (Los Angeles Rams), C.J. MOSLEY (New York Jets) and TERRELL SUGGS(Arizona); cornerbacks ROBERT ALFORD (Arizona), BRADLEY ROBY (Houston) and STEVEN NELSON (Pittsburgh); and safeties LANDON COLLINS (Washington); TYRANN MATHIEU(Kansas City), EARL THOMAS (Baltimore) and ERIC WEDDLE (Los Angeles Rams).
  • YOUNG STARS TAKE THE STAGE: Last season, seven rookies – New York Giants running backSAQUON BARKLEY, Seattle punter MICHAEL DICKSON, Los Angeles Chargers safety DERWIN JAMES, Denver running back PHILLIP LINDSAY, Indianapolis guard QUENTON NELSON, Dallas linebacker LEIGHTON VANDER ESCH and Cleveland cornerback DENZEL WARD – earned Pro Bowl honors.
    Last year, 39 players age 25 or younger as of Dec. 31, 2018, were selected to the Pro Bowl. And 16 of those 39 were voted AP All-Pro, including New York Jets safety JAMAL ADAMS, Chicago kick-returner TARIK COHEN, Cleveland defensive end MYLES GARRETT, Minnesota defensive endDANIELLE HUNTER, New York Giants kicker ALDRICK ROSAS and the reigning MVP, Kansas City quarterback PATRICK MAHOMES.
    Three quarterbacks – Oklahoma’s KYLER MURRAY (No. 1 overall, Arizona), Duke’s DANIEL JONES (No. 6, New York Giants) and Ohio State’s DWAYNE HASKINS (No. 15, Washington) – were selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

NFL TO HOST COMMUNITY EVENTS ACROSS CHICAGO THROUGHOUT KICKOFF WEEK
Huddle for 100 Continues in Chicago with 'Huddle Up to Play it Forward'
In the lead up to the Green Bay - Chicago Kickoff game in Chicago on Thursday, the NFL will host a series of community and service events to celebrate the start of the league's centennial season.
From citywide efforts to make the community greener and cleaner to character-building initiatives, the NFL will leave a lasting impact on the city of Chicago and throughout Illinois. Members of the community will be able to participate in these activities and experience the excitement as the 100th season kicks off in their city.
Throughout the week, volunteers and NFL Legends will participate in events designed to give back to Chicago. The NFL will host its third national huddle, HUDDLE UP TO PLAY IT FORWARD as part of the NFL's Huddle for 100 campaign. The campaign is the NFL's season-long initiative to get 1 million people to donate 100 minutes of their time with the goal being 100 million minutes volunteered by Super Bowl LIV.
As part of Huddle Up to Play It Forward, there will be a DOUGLAS PARK CLEAN UP event where 300 volunteers alongside NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL and CHICAGO MAYOR LORI LIGHTFOOT will participate in a revitalization project at Douglas Park, which spans an estimated 80 acres. FUEL UP TO PLAY 60 students, program advisors and dairy farmers will take part in the volunteer event. They will be joined by Pro Football Hall of Fame members ORLANDO PACE and JOHN RANDLE and NFL Legends MARTY MOOREand LEONARD WHEELER.
NFL partner LOWE'S will donate equipment and supplies that will be used by volunteers at Douglas Park. Lowe's employees will volunteer on projects throughout the park including mulching, painting and planting to beautify and positively shape the local park for members of the community.
Following the Douglas Park refurbishment, NFL partner CAMPBELL'S SOUP will donate soup products to volunteers. Campbell's will provide a chance for two volunteers to win pairs of Bears' tickets to a game later in the season through a raffle drawing at the event. DAIRY MANAGEMENT INC. and PIZZA HUT will also provide food for the 300 volunteers that participate in the Douglas Park NFL Huddle for 100 event.
To aid in enhancing the Chicago community, the NFL FOUNDATION has committed nearly $600,000 in grant awards over the past two years to the Chicago Park District.  The NFL Foundation Grassroots Field Grant program (in partnership with the Local Initiatives Support Corporation) allotted funding to refurbish youth football fields in Douglas Park and Ogden Park. Additionally, the NFL Foundation also will provide a grant to help with the field refurbishment project at Dunbar Park.
Also under the Huddle Up to Play it Forward umbrella, members of Boys and Girls Clubsthroughout the Chicago area will participate Wednesday in after-school activities that bring to life several Huddle Up to Play It Forward themes, including promoting healthy eating and exercise habits and creating a cleaner environment. The activity will walk volunteers through the process of decorating a recycling bin to serve as a reminder to recycle. Once the activity is complete, members can take their decorated recycling bin home or into school as an ongoing reminder to reduce waste. NFL Network Good Morning Football host KAY ADAMS will join participants in their efforts to beautify the environmental efforts of Chicago.
Additionally, the NFL will host an NFL PLAY 60 CHARACTER CAMP PRESENTED BY NATIONWIDE, led by Pro Football Hall of Fame Tackle ANTHONY MUÑOZ. The NFL PLAY 60 Character Camp program is a partnership between the NFL and the Muñoz Agency. The mission of the camps is to make a positive impact on youth through teaching football skills, emphasizing exercise, and reinforcing the importance of character in athletics and life. 
Nationwide believes in the power of communities and is honored to partner with the NFL and Muñoz Agency, as presenting sponsors of the NFL PLAY 60 Character Camp in Chicago. Additionally, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, Nationwide, in partnership with the NFL and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation are proud to sponsor the NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards which will recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market.
In collaboration with ROC NATION, the NFL will host a speed mentoring event for participants of the BBF FAMILY SERVICES mentor program as part of the INSPIRE CHANGE INITIATIVE. Representatives from the NFL, Roc Nation and local civic leaders will engage with 65 youth ages 13-19 to provide them with an opportunity to ask questions of and learn from professionals.

Last week, it was announced that artists MEEK MILL, MEGHAN TRAINOR and RAPSODYare the first Inspire Change advocates of the 2019 NFL Season. Rapsody will attend the speed mentoring session.
On game day, the Bears and the NFL will host an additional Huddle Up to Play it Forward event, THE CLEAN & GREEN TAILGATE, where fans tailgating in various Soldier Field parking lots will be encouraged to help keep the tailgate areas clean by recycling and disposing of their trash.

Comienza la 100ª temporada de la NFL: Green Bay Packers en Chicago Bears
COMIENZA LA 100A TEMPORADA DE LA NFL:
GREEN BAY PACKERS EN CHICAGO BEARS
Desde que la NFL fue lanzada, en 1920, ninguna otra rivalidad ha tenido una historia más vívida que la de los GREEN BAY PACKERS y los CHICAGO BEARS. Y desde que  AARON RODGERS se convirtió en titular, en 2008, pocas rivalidades de la NFL tuvieron tantas implicancias para la postemporada.

Rodgers y el entrenador en jefe novato de los Packers MATT LaFLEUR esta semana se toman el vuelo de 34 minutos hasta Chicago, donde los Bears serán anfitriones de la histórica apertura de jueves por la noche (8:20 p.m., hora de New York, NBC). Los Packers tienen 56 victorias en el Fin de semana inaugural, la mayor cantidad en la NFL, incluyendo la racha más larga activa en la NFC, que es de cuatro partidos. Los 54 triunfos de Chicago en el Fin de semana inaugural se ubican en segundo lugar.

La victoria en el venerable Soldier Field, el estadio más antiguo de la liga, resultó significativo durante la era Rodgers. En nueve de los últimos10 años, el ganador del partido entre estos clubes disputado frente al lago Michigan clasificó a la postemporada. En siete de las últimas nueve temporadas, el ganador de este duelo en el Soldier Field terminó ganando la división. Y en 2010, un triunfo en la "Ciudad del viento" en el Campeonato de la NFC también les való a los Packers un boleto para el Super Bowl XLV.

Un equipo diferente ganó la NFC Norte cada uno de los últimos tres años, siendo ésta la única división de la NFL con esa distinción, la misma en la que tampoco hubo ganador que repite desde 2014.

Ingresando en este año, los Bears son los reyes de la colina tras haber capturado la NFC Norte bajo el mandato de su propio entrenador en jefe novato, MATT NAGY, y el mariscal de campo titular de segundo año MITCHELL TRUBISKY, la segunda selección global del Sorteo Universitario de la NFL 2017. En su camino hacia la postemporada, Chicago tuvo registro de 12-4 para capturar le preclasificación Nº 3 de la NFC, uniéndose a losHOUSTON TEXANS (AFC Sur) como los dos equipos que completaron un resurgimiento "de peor a primero" en 2018. En 15 de las últimas 16 temporadas, al menos un equipo ganó su división en la campaña siguiente a haber terminado en el último lugar.

El jueves también marca el primer partido de los Bears bajo las órdenes del nuevo coordinador defensivo CHUCK PAGANO, ex entrenador en jefe de los Colts que hereda una unidad que lideró la NFL en menor cantidad de puntos permitidos (17.7 por juego), cortes de balón (36), intercepciones (27), intercepciones anotadores (cinco), menos yardas por tierra (80.0 por juego) y menos yardas netas por jugada de pase (5.3). KYLE FULLER empató el liderazgo de la liga con siete intercepciones y EDDIE JACKSON igualó el liderazgo de la NFL con dos anotaciones mediante retorno de intercepción. Mientras tanto, KHALIL MACK (12.5 en 2018) es uno de apenas tres jugadores de la NFL con al menos 10 capturas en cada de las últimas tres temporadas.

Official Playing Rules of the NFL Now Available in Spanish
​​​Official Playing Rules of the NFL Now Available in Spanish
Beginning with the NFL's 100th season, the Official Playing Rules of the NFL are now available in Spanish.  This marks the first time in NFL history that the Rulebook has been translated to another language.
The Official Playing Rules of the NFL contains all current rules governing the playing of professional football that are in effect for the 2019 NFL season. 
Under the direction of Alberto Riveron, NFL Senior Vice President of Officiating, the project was led by Frank Szczepanik, NFL Officiating Special Projects Coordinator and NFL announcer Alvaro Martin, who together formed a committee comprised of some of the best-known and most respected Spanish-language NFL announcers to develop this version of the NFL Rulebook.  The committee was comprised of Raul Allegre, Enrique Burak and Joaquin Castillo. 
"The translation of the NFL Rulebook to Spanish is part of the NFL's ongoing effort to engage and educate Spanish-speaking fans and media, as well as a step towards developing officiating talent in Mexico and across Latin America," Riveron said. "It was important to have Spanish-language NFL experts come together to collaborate on this project.  We were excited to have such a talented team develop the first Spanish-language NFL Rulebook."
Martin is in his third decade announcing NFL games in Spanish, having previously served as ESPN's Monday Night Football announcer for the ESPN Deportes Spanish-language U.S. broadcast, as well as for ESPN International's broadcast to viewers in Latin America.  He is now part of the Pittsburgh Steelers' Spanish-language announcing team.  Additionally, he collaborates with the NFL's officiating department in preparing content for Spanish-speaking fans around the world. 
ESPN's Allegre is a nine-year NFL veteran and two-time Super Bowl winner with the New York Giants (1986 and 1990).  Since 2002, he has served as an NFL analyst for ESPN's Spanish-language NFL broadcasts across the U.S. and Latin America.    
Televisa's Burak has covered a number of sports and the Olympics for almost three decades.  He is an integral part of Televisa's NFL announcing team.   
TV Azteca's Castillo stood out as a college quarterback, winning two championships for Mexico's Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), and later coached UNAM, thus earning the widely-used nickname "Coach."   He worked as a team general manager in Mexico's pro football league and continues to serve as TV Azteca's lead analyst.

El comité lo conforman Raúl Allegre, Enrique Burak y Joaquín Castillo.
"La traducción del NFL Rulebook al español es parte del esfuerzo continuo de la NFL para involucrar y orientar a los aficionados y a los medios de habla hispana, así como dar un paso hacia el desarrollo de talento de los árbitros en México y en América Latina", dijo Riverón. "Era importante contar con expertos de la NFL que hablaran español para que se unieran a este proyecto. Nos entusiasmó que un equipo tan talentoso desarrollara el primer Libro de Reglas de la NFL en español".
Martín se encuentra en su tercera década narrando y comentando juegos de la NFL en español. Anteriormente se desempeñó como locutor de ESPN Deportes en Español para la transmisión del Monday Night Football en Estados Unidos, así como para la transmisión de ESPN Internacional a los televidentes en América Latina.

The NFL’s 100th Season Begins: Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
THE NFL'S 100TH SEASON BEGINS:
GREEN BAY PACKERS AT CHICAGO BEARS
Since the NFL launched in 1920, no other rivalry has contained more vivid history than theGREEN BAY PACKERS and CHICAGO BEARS. And since AARON RODGERS became a starter in 2008, few NFL rivalries have carried as many playoff implications.
Rodgers and rookie Packers head coach MATT LaFLEUR this week make the 34-minute flight to Chicago, where the Bears will host Thursday's historic opener (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). The Packers have 56 wins on Kickoff Weekend, most in the NFL, including the longest active streak in the NFC, four games. Chicago's 54 Kickoff Weekend wins rank second.
Victory at venerable Soldier Field, the league's oldest stadium, has proven significant during the Rodgers era. In nine of the last 10 years, the winner of the lakefront game between these clubs has advanced to the playoffs. In seven of the last nine seasons, the winner of this Soldier Field game has gone on to win the division. And in 2010, a Windy City win in the NFC Championship also gave the Packers a trip to Super Bowl XLV.
A different team has won the NFC North each of the last three years, the NFL's only division with that distinction, and the division hasn't seen a repeat winner since 2014.
Entering this year, the Bears are kings of that hill after capturing the NFC North under their own rookie head coach, MATT NAGY, and second-year starting quarterback MITCHELL TRUBISKY, the second-overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. On the path to the postseason, Chicago finished 12-4 to capture the NFC's No. 3 seed, joining the HOUSTON TEXANS (AFC South) as the two teams to complete a "worst-to-first" turnaround in 2018.In 15 of the past 16 seasons, at least one team has won its division the season after finishing in last place.
Thursday also marks the Bears' first game under new defensive coordinator CHUCK PAGANO. The former Colts head coach inherits a unit that led the NFL in fewest points allowed (17.7 per game), takeaways (36), interceptions (27), interception touchdowns (five), fewest rushing yards (80.0 per game) and fewest net yards per pass play (5.3). KYLE FULLER tied for the league lead with seven interceptions and EDDIE JACKSON tied for the league lead with two interception-touchdowns. Meanwhile, KHALIL MACK (12.5 in 2018) is one of just three NFL players with at least 10 sacks in each of the last three seasons.

The NFL’s 100th Season Begins: Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
THE NFL'S 100TH SEASON BEGINS:
GREEN BAY PACKERS AT CHICAGO BEARS
Since the NFL launched in 1920, no other rivalry has contained more vivid history than theGREEN BAY PACKERS and CHICAGO BEARS. And since AARON RODGERS became a starter in 2008, few NFL rivalries have carried as many playoff implications.
Rodgers and rookie Packers head coach MATT LaFLEUR this week make the 34-minute flight to Chicago, where the Bears will host Thursday's historic opener (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). The Packers have 56 wins on Kickoff Weekend, most in the NFL, including the longest active streak in the NFC, four games. Chicago's 54 Kickoff Weekend wins rank second.
Victory at venerable Soldier Field, the league's oldest stadium, has proven significant during the Rodgers era. In nine of the last 10 years, the winner of the lakefront game between these clubs has advanced to the playoffs. In seven of the last nine seasons, the winner of this Soldier Field game has gone on to win the division. And in 2010, a Windy City win in the NFC Championship also gave the Packers a trip to Super Bowl XLV.
A different team has won the NFC North each of the last three years, the NFL's only division with that distinction, and the division hasn't seen a repeat winner since 2014.
Entering this year, the Bears are kings of that hill after capturing the NFC North under their own rookie head coach, MATT NAGY, and second-year starting quarterback MITCHELL TRUBISKY, the second-overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. On the path to the postseason, Chicago finished 12-4 to capture the NFC's No. 3 seed, joining the HOUSTON TEXANS (AFC South) as the two teams to complete a "worst-to-first" turnaround in 2018.In 15 of the past 16 seasons, at least one team has won its division the season after finishing in last place.
Thursday also marks the Bears' first game under new defensive coordinator CHUCK PAGANO. The former Colts head coach inherits a unit that led the NFL in fewest points allowed (17.7 per game), takeaways (36), interceptions (27), interception touchdowns (five), fewest rushing yards (80.0 per game) and fewest net yards per pass play (5.3). KYLE FULLER tied for the league lead with seven interceptions and EDDIE JACKSON tied for the league lead with two interception-touchdowns.
