Starting left guard Roger Saffold also strained an oblique muscle in last Sunday’s 27-23 win over the Titans, but McVay said Saffold checked out OK. On the other side of NHL Jerseys China the ball, the Rams are dealing with injuries to linebacker Alec Ogletree and safety Mark Barron.

The Rams (11-4) will likely be the No. 3 seed in the NFC with a win over the 49ers (5-10), who have won four straight since Jimmy Garoppolo took over at quarterback.

Thanks to the 1 p.m. ET start, the ice at Monday’s Winter Classic was partially covered in shadows. Look one way and there was blinding glare. Look the other way and the puck could NFL Jerseys Paypal be hard to pick up.
Playing on the right side in the first period, every time I got a puck and looked cross-ice … that’s where the sun was shining. It was a little strange, said Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. I couldn’t tell the jersey colors. You could just see the guys that were standing over there. You just had to realize that you didn’t want to pass the puck to someone who wasn’t on your team, and try to limit your mistakes.
Lundqvist said the shadows stopped bothering him about 10 minutes into the game; in fact, the only time glare was an issue was when his eyes adjusted after he left the rink for the locker room between periods.
