Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn said he will reach out to the league to see if a blindside block that injured punter Matt Bosher Thursday night was illegal. Yu Darvish Jersey .The play occurred in the first quarter of the Falcons 24-13 preseason win over the Cleveland Browns. After Bosher hit a 58-yard punt, he ran down in punt coverage and was blasted by Browns linebacker Tank Carder. Bosher was knocked from the game with a chest injury. No penalty was called.Certainly one I looked at and Id like to ask the league their opinion on it, Is it a case of a defenseless hit or not? Quinn said. Im going to send it in to take a look at.According to an NFL source, however, the hit was considered legal.The main thing is Bosher is OK. Definitely took a hit and got shook up, for sure. I talked to him today (and) hes definitely doing better. Im not sure if hell be available for us this week. Its something, I think, wed have to go through the week and see where hes at. Hell be limited to start the week and well go from there.Quinn viewed it as a peel-back block on a player who didnt see it coming.The NFL rulebook applies the peel-back rule to blocks below the waist. The blindside block rules applies to contact above the waist and when protecting the head and neck area of a player.?Per the rulebook, any blocker who is moving back toward his own goal line cannot go below the waist (peel back rule) or to the head/neck area (blindside block rule).On special teams all blocks by the return team below the waist are prohibited throughout the entire play.Carder took to Twitter to say the hit wasnt as bad as it could have been.?When Bosher left Thursdays game, undrafted rookie kicker Nick Rose handled the punting duties, with no other punter on the 90-man roster. Roses lone punt went for 16 yards.The Falcons are bringing in free-agent punter Brandon Fields for a workout prior to Thursday nights third preseason game against the Miami Dolphins in Orlando.There is no guarantee that Fields or another punter will be signed, however, since Bosher is expected to recover.Bosher, a former sixth-round pick out of Miami, has been the Falcons punter since 2011. Ernie Banks Jersey . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. Andre Dawson Jersey . The phone hearing is scheduled for 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt. Winchester, who was not penalized for the hit, appeared to make contact with Kellys head early in the first period of Thursdays game in Boston. http://www.cheapcubsjerseyschina.com/ . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady had a smooth regular-season home debut.Playing his first game in Foxborough since the end of his Deflategate suspension, Brady had three touchdown passes and went over 5,000 completions for his career , and the Patriots beat the Cincinnati Bengals 35-17 on Sunday.Brady finished 29 for 35 for 376 yards. Tight end Rob Gronkowski had seven receptions for a career-high 162 yards and a touchdown.I think I know how to get to that place where I need to be, Brady said. You only have so much energy, and at some point you gotta cut it loose when the moments right.Cincinnati dropped to 2-4 for the first time since 2010, when it finished 4-12 -- its worst season under coach Marvin Lewis.The Bengals had their moments offensively, scoring on a 2-yard touchdown run by Andy Dalton and 5-yard pass from Dalton to Brandon LaFell. Dalton finished 21 of 31 for 254 yards.But New England (5-1) bounced back from some sluggish drives early with several big plays in the third quarter.The Bengals scored on their first drive after halftime to briefly take a 14-10 lead. The Patriots swiftly responded with a safety and a pair of touchdown passes by Brady -first to Gronkowski, then to James White -- to put the Patriots back in front.Cincinnati has lost in its past six trips to New England. It hasnt won in Foxborough since 1986.QUOTABLE: Bengals coach Marvin Lewis on his teams recent struggles: Its disappointing. Were doing a lot of things right, and doing things good, and correct. But were not finishing things. We continue to be our own Achilles heel, way too often. Whether its a penalty on defense, which sets us back, or a key third down conversion. It turns out to be the key to the football game.TE Martellus Bennett on a late-game shoving match between several players on both sides following LeGarrette Blounts 1-yard touchdown run: Thats just what it is. We dont back down. Were not looking for trouble, but we dont walk away from trouble either.MISSED OPPORTUNITY: The Bengals had a chance to score in the first half, but couldnt convert on three straight plays from the 1-yard line.New England led 3-0 early in the second quarter when Dalton hit Giovani Bernard for 32 yards to the 6-yard line. Bernard ran for 5 more on first down to put it inside the 1. On second down, though, Bernard waas stopped for no gain. Jason Heyward Jersey. Daltons pass to A.J. Green in the left corner of the end zone on third down was well covered by Malcolm Butler, setting up a fourth-and-goal from a foot.Bernard took the handoff and drove into the line, but the Patriots pushed him back and took over on downs.The Bengals forced the Patriots to punt and then brought it back to the goal line on their next possession before Dalton ran it in himself from the 2 to make it 7-3.TWO-MINUTE DRILL: Brady was efficient in the Patriots final drive of the first half. After throwing an incompletion and taking an 8-yard sack to begin the drive, he ended it with five straight completions, including a 39-yard pass to Chris Hogan to set up the 15-yard touchdown pass to White. The drive took just 2:09 off the clock.GOING DEEP: Including the 39-yard reception in the second quarter, Hogan has five catches of at least 20 yards on the season. That is more than any other Patriots receiver.SAFETIES SQUARED: Patriots LB Donta Hightower delivered his second safety in two weeks. He dragged down Dalton in the end zone in the third quarter to cut Cincinnatis lead to 14-12. Hightower also forced a safety against Cleveland last week when he pressured Browns quarterback Cody Kessler into a backward pass that went out of the end zone.GRONK GETS ON THE BOARD: After going three games this season without reaching the end zone, Gronkowski got his first touchdown reception of the season in the third quarter. Gronk got free over the middle and hauled in a 4-yard catch that put the Patriots up 19-14 after Stephen Gostkowskis extra point. It was the first time that Brady and Gronk have connected for a TD this season. Gronk celebrated with his usual spike of the football.INJURIES: Patriots LB Elandon Roberts left early in the second quarter with a head injury. Cincinnati center Russell Bodine limped off with a right leg injury in the third quarter. Patriots defensive lineman Woodrow Hamilton left the game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder injury.UP NEXT: Cincinnati: Bengals host Browns on Sunday.New England: Patriots travel to Steelers on Sunday.---AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL China Jerseys WholesaleChina NFL JerseysWholesale Stitched JerseysChina JerseysNFL T-shirts From ChinaCheap NFL T-shirtsWholesale Jerseys 2019 ' ' '
