Authentic Kids Sidney Jones Jersey The NFL playoff picture got clearer after the early games, as the Detroit Lions were eliminated, the Saints and Panthers locked up spots; and the Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West again.

The Chargers stayed alive with a win over the Jets, 29-13. The Patriots remained in position for the top seed in the AFC with a 37-16 win over the Bills. Buffalo remains tied with the Chargers and Titans, who lost 27-23 to the Rams, for a wild-card spot.

There’s more at stake than sharp barbs in this pushback from the masters of the universe.

The NFL is starting to feel the financial whiplash from Wall Street. Some of the highest rollers at the games these days are deal-makers and stock traders who unwind in the best stadium suites, sponsor the NFL and bankroll the franchise by buying blocks of season tickets.

Of course we should respect the American flag, said John O’Shea, New York-based chairman of Global Alliance Securities, who has season tickets to the Giants.

O’Shea did not dispute a player’s constitutional right to protest and he hasn’t shredded his season tickets just yet.

That made for a combined attendance of 81,993 for the two NFL franchises in Los Angeles last weekend. The USC-Texas game last Saturday at the Authentic Randal Grichuk Jersey Coliseum drew 84,714.

An athlete openly talking about his own career mortality can mean he already is essentially done as a player. Is that the case with Roethlisberger? Former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann said he doesn’t think so.

For some guys, it does mean that, Theismann said this week. In Ben’s case, I don’t think it applies. That was frustration.

But even if Roethlisberger plays well for the remainder of the season, Theismann said he suspects that Roethlisberger could walk away from the sport in the coming offseason.
