FILE In this Wednesday, April 12, 2017, file photo, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, fiancee of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, sits in the courtroom with the couple’s daughter during jury deliberations in Hernandez’s double murder trial at Suffolk Superior Court in Boston. Jenkins Hernandez said in an interview on “Dr. Phil” scheduled to air May 2017 that she thought “some cruel person” was playing a trick on her when she heard Hernandez hand hanged himself in his prison cell on April 19, days after he was acquitted of a double murder.
The much maligned unit delivered one last dud Sunday in the Giants’ 35 30 loss to the Eagles at MetLife Stadium, clinching its official status as the NFL’s worst defense during the 2015 campaign. The Giants allowed 419.3 yards per game this season, edging out the Saints by about six yards to finish dead last, No. 32 in the league..
Though the Browns are ranked 20th in total defense (based on yards allowed) and 14th in the league in pass defense, the 54.8 quarterback efficiency rating against them is the lowest in the NFL. Rookie cornerback Anthony Henry has been a big part of the pass defense, having picked off seven passes, which has him tied for first in the AFC and one behind the NFL lead. Henry’s picks have come in bursts, too, with two three interception games..

And then, just like he did in the 6th inning last night (and just like Delino DeShields in the 7th inning the night before, against Houston), he stole second base and advanced to third on a throwing error by the catcher. But Chirinos struck out, and DeShields hit a fly ball to right that wasn deep enough for Odor to score..
Autopsy results are pending, Fairfax County police said in a statement. This time, we believe this is an isolated incident. We are continuing to investigate every lead. They fit defensively what they do on offense. I think that makes them a challenge.”But it will also be a challenge for Denver, on a short week, to prepare for an Eagles team that has had extra time to concoct a game plan. The Eagles could find new ways to get wide receiver (19 catches, 359 yards) open, exploit their tight ends, especially rookie (averaging 18.5 yards per catch) more, and perhaps get McCoy more involved as a receiver.
3 signal caller. The Highland High grad from Pocatello was almost a hero in the Saints’ divisional playoff game at Minnesota Sunday. Almost. ELLIOTT OFF THE FIELD: With the NFL investigation that led to a suspension still looming last offseason, Elliott had trouble keeping his name out of the headlines.
