The Cardinals, who are ranked last in rushing yards and yards per carry, are hoping Peterson is the answer to their rushing woes.
Less than a week after the tape was confiscated, Goodell on Sept. 13 issued an emergency order compelling the Pats to fork over any other tapes. Yet before receiving any of them, he handed down his punishment: taking away the Pats’ first-round draft pick the next year, while fining the team $250,000 and Belichick — who claimed he simply misinterpreted the rulebook and never used video to gain a competitive advantage — the league maximum $500,000.
On Sept. 20, the NFL announced the Pats handed over six tapes and two days later said little about what the recordings contained — only that they had been destroyed.
“When somebody has a hit that looks suspicious, it takes the league three to four days of looking at a tape, then they -issue a fine,” O’Leary said.
Fueled by the stellar play of Pro Bowlers Marshon Lattimore and Alvin Kamara and the timely contributions of Marcus Williams and Ryan Ramczyk, the Saints have emerged as legitimate title contenders in the NFC.
“I’ll be lying to you to say that I didn’t want a change of scenery after four weeks of seeing how things played out,” Peterson told Arizona reporters this week. “So, yeah, it was something that I was praying about … and the prayer was answered.”
Less than five months after the 9/11 attacks, U2 performed the most meaningful halftime show in Super Bowl history. The band’s touching tribute featured the colors of the American flag and the names of those who perished.
One word — theatrics. This show had so much show. Katy Perry entered the stadium on a giant gold tiger, surrounded by glowing orbs on the field. Add pyrotechnics, an incredible digital stage and the now-viral Left Shark, and the mega-pop star’s performance was pure entertainment.
The incredible magic of “Purple Rain” in the purple rain. Prince battled strong winds and heavy rain during his performance at Super Bowl 41 in Miami and didn’t miss a step. With his purple love symbol lighting up the wet field, this halftime show was more than memorable. It was iconic.
Before Michael Jackson, the Super Bowl halftime show was just a long bathroom break. The King of Pop changed that in 1993 with this epic performance.
From a James Earl Jones introduction to MJ stunt doubles popping up above the jumbotrons around the stadium, there is no topping this spectacular show. The moment also marked the first time in Super Bowl history that ratings increased between halves during the game.
