(Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)Aaron Murray is one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in Georgia history. After four years as a starter for Mark Richt’s Bulldogs, he went on to a brief NFL career.After a game against the powerhouse 2010 Auburn Tigers, and star defensive tackle Nick Fairley, he says he considered stepping away from the game. Fairley took repeated shots on Murray, some of which were questionable, during the 49-31 Tigers win at Jordan-Hare Stadium.Auburn, led by Fairley and Heisman winner Cam Newton, went on to capture the national title. Murray would start three more seasons, but the 2010 Auburn game left him very shaken up.According to Murray, he suffered a fractured sternum and serious whiplash during the game, leaving him briefly contemplating leaving the game. Aaron Murray joined the 3 Man Front show on WJOX and discussed his rough experience with Nick Fairley during the 2010 Auburn-Georgia game.Via Saturday Down South:“If he did that outside the football field, he’d have been in jail for three years. … That was actually the first time in my life I was like ‘I don’t know if I want to play football anymore.’ I’m not kidding either,” Murray recalled. “I was on the sideline, and I had six stitches; my jersey’s covered in blood; I had a fractured sternum and can’t feel the left side of my body. I got whiplash in my neck, and I can’t really move my neck. I was like ‘Is this really worth it? It’s my freshman year, I can quit now and save myself a lot of punishment.’“I had to sit up sleeping the next two weeks. I couldn’t even lay down. It was tough.”The full clip:CBS Sports Network’s @AaronMurray11 joined @3ManFront to recap SEC Media Days, witnessing @TG3II working out, and go in-depth on the aftermath from all those @Nick_Fairley251 hits.— WJOX 94.5 FM (@WJOX945) July 18, 2019During that game, Fairley’s play drew the ire of the Georgia offensive line as well. As shown towards the end of this clip, the two teams got into a shoving match at one point after a hit on Murray.Murray was actually pretty effective in that game, throwing for 273 yards and three touchdowns without an interception, but Newton went for four total touchdowns, throwing for 148 yards and adding 151 on the ground.Fairley was only tabbed for four total tackles, and no sacks, but clearly had his presence felt far beyond the box score.[WJOX via Saturday Down South]last_img read more

Australia receive injury boost ahead of 1st Ashes Test as Khawaja passes fitness test

first_img Indo-Asian News Service BirminghamJuly 30, 2019UPDATED: July 30, 2019 13:16 IST Usman Khawaja is back after recovering from a hamstring injury (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAustralia batsman Usman Khawaja will be available for selection for the first Ashes Test against EnglandKhawaja had picked up a hamstring injury during Australia’s clash against South AfricaKhawaja has been batting at the No.3 spot since the last Ashes series in England four years agoAustralia batsman Usman Khawaja will be available for selection for the first Ashes Test against England beginning Thursday.On Monday, Khawaja went through a series of rigorous fitness test which included a series of 10 twos on the Edgbaston outfield before spending 45 minutes in the nets, taking slips catches from fielding coach Brad Haddin and then returning to the nets for another hit, reports, the only thing that can prevent Khawaja’s selection for the first Ashes Test is whether the selectors deem the left-hander has had enough match practice since the injury to slot into the starting XI.There were doubts over Khawaja’s availability for the Birmingham Test after the 32-year-old had picked up a hamstring injury during Australia’s clash against South Africa in the recently concluded World Cup and was subsequently ruled out of the tournament.Khawaja has been batting at the No.3 spot since the last Ashes series in England four years ago, posting eight centuries and an average of 47.76 in that period.While Khawaja looks all close to being fully fit, there was another injury scare for Australia after David Warner was hit at the nets by paceman Michael Neser. Warner is set to have a nasty bruise above his left knee after copping an inside edge off the bowling of Neser.The Australian opener limped out of the nets area on his way back to the away team dressing room where he iced the damaged area. However, it is believed in the Australian camp that he will be fine for Thursday’s opening day.advertisementAlso Read | The Ashes, England vs Australia 2019: All you need to know about cricket’s oldest rivalryAlso Read | Steve Waugh issues Steve Smith warning to England ahead of 1st Ashes TestAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

What You’ll See at the Darkest Park in the Eastern U.S.

first_img Live Out Your Westworld Dreams at Casteel Creek Retreat Editors’ Recommendations It’s Time to Ditch Your Sleeping Bag for a Versatile, Lightweight Camping Quilt Nevada’s Train to Nowhere Promises Out-of-This-World Stargazing Nevada’s Massacre Rim Named Latest International Dark Sky Sanctuary “Right Coasters” (those along the eastern seaboard of the United States) are cursed. The northeastern U.S. — and New England in particular — is blanketed by some of the worst light pollution in the world. The cluster of Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, and other high-density urban centers expose the region’s skies to a constant haze of artificial light. The population explosion in the last hundred years guarantees that this problem isn’t going away. That means Northeast locals who never venture away from home aren’t likely to ever see the night sky as our ancestors did. Indeed, there are some who will never witness the beauty of a true black sky.The antidote lies in rural Western Pennsylvania in an area beset with lush state parks and pristine preserves. Among the massive, 262,000-acre Susquehannock State Forest, the tiny, unassuming Cherry Springs State Park is surprisingly the darkest place in the eastern United States. That’s according to science. In 1998, it was designated by the International Dark Sky Association as a Gold Level International Dark Sky Park (its highest designation). Today, the park’s nightscape remains much as it did thousands of years ago with almost no trace of light pollution from any direction. In addition, the park actively maintains the surrounding natural and artificial landscape to ensure that it remains as dark as possible.The 82-acre park is still relatively unknown. But it has become a legitimate destination for amateur astronomers and — affectionately — other geeks. Some travel hundreds of miles to camp overnight and spend just a few hours in the star field.Shortly after nightfall, it’s easy to see why. Every night, visitors venture onto the Astronomy Field with camp chairs, blankets, and Thermoses in tow. After 20 minutes, the human eye has had enough time to acquire its night vision. It’s only then that dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of pinpricks of light begin to come into focus until the entire sky is awash in stars. For a native New Englander, it’s like seeing the night sky for the very first time. On an average night, visitors can spot Mars and Saturn with the naked eye. Shooting stars are a common occurrence. Under clear skies — which happen frequently in the area — the Milky Way is bright enough to cast a shadow. On exceptional nights, the Aurora Borealis is clearly visible, making Cherry Springs arguably the southernmost point in the Eastern U.S. to experience the phenomenon. Good to know: Inexpensive, rustic camping is available in a well-maintained campground. During the week, visitors can often have the park to themselves. The park also frequently hosts dark sky parties and other astronomy talks and events hosted by park staff and amateur astronomers.

Court asked to give interim payment to victims of Humboldt Broncos bus

first_imgSASKATOON – A court hearing has been rescheduled for Aug. 15 to provide victims of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash with $50,000 each from a massive fundraising campaign.The Humboldt Broncos Memorial Fund Inc. will ask the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench to approve the interim payment to the 13 survivors and the families of the 16 people who died after the April 6 crash.“There are affidavit materials filed that establish that certain … families of persons who were travelling on the bus at the time of the accident have suffered financial hardship and require some relief against that — and that’s the purpose of the distribution,” said Jeff Lee, a lawyer who represents the fund.A GoFundMe campaign was created immediately after the crash and received $15.2 million in donations from all over the world.Saskatchewan has legislation known as the Informal Public Appeals Act, which outlines a court-supervised process to support the distribution of crowdfunding donations.The hearing on how to distribute the money, which was initially set for Aug. 13, was rescheduled at the request of the court.Lee said he will also ask the court to approve a committee made up of retired judge Dennis Ball; Mark Chipman, chairman of the company that owns the Winnipeg Jets; Olympic gold medallist Hayley Wickenheiser; Dr. Peter Spafford, who’s in charge of head and neck surgery at the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Medicine; and Kevin Cameron, executive director of the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response.That committee would prepare a report with recommendations to the memorial fund board on how to distribute the rest of the money.“The objective would be to have the recommendations come back within 60 days after the Aug. 15 court hearing and then see the matter in court shortly thereafter for a final disposition,” said Lee.The court documents state the non-profit group has received free professional services from its law firm, bank and accountants.GoFundMe has deducted roughly $483,000 from the money raised to cover 2.9 per cent payment processing fees. An additional $49,000 is being held back by GoFundMe in a temporary reserve in case any donors challenge their contribution.last_img read more

Annan heads to Kabul to show solidarity with Afghan people – UN

“He is coming to express his solidarity for the people of Afghanistan in their time of need,” spokesman Ahmad Fawzi told reporters in Kabul. “To see for himself the hardships that they have suffered.”While in Afghanistan – the second leg of a trip to the region that began in Pakistan and will take him also to Iran – the Secretary-General will visit a girls’ school, underscoring the significance of their education, which was banned by the previous regime. “Education for girls…under the Taliban was non-existent, and it is an important message that Mr. Annan is sending to the people of Afghanistan and to the international community by visiting this girls’ school tomorrow,” said Mr. Fawzi.In addition to meeting with ordinary Afghans, the Secretary-General will also “congratulate the leaders of the Interim Administration for the job that they have been doing under very difficult circumstances, over the past month, with few resources,” the spokesman said. Asked about security challenges, Mr. Fawzi emphasized the importance of supporting the interim authorities in the area of law enforcement. “We have to assist this Administration create a new national army and police force that are capable of maintaining law and order throughout the country, otherwise we will not see the kind of development and progress and reconstruction that this country so desperately needs,” he said.The UN estimates $1.3 billion is required to cover Afghanistan’s immediate needs, including some $313 million for food assistance, $221.6 million for the Interim Authority, $208.5 million for relief to nearly 4 million refugees and 1 million internally displaced Afghans, and $85.8 million to rebuild the education system. read more

UN chief celebrates spirit of hope in Mali calls for greater international

A few weeks after the presidential vote in Mali, which saw the re-election of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta, the full implementation of the 2015 Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation has been hampered by persistent delays and frequently renegotiated timelines.“It is time for all parties to honour their obligations,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres, who visited Mali in May, and described seeing a “spirit of hope and possibility,” amid all the challenges.  “The people of Mali must see the tangible dividends of peace,” he stated.Conflict in northern Mali started in 2012, with a sharp intensification of hostilities across the country in 2018, leading to a worsening of the humanitarian situation. The UN Stabilization Mission in Mali, MINUSMA, has become the most dangerous place in the world to serve as a ‘blue helmet’.According to the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), about 5.2 million people – one in four Malians – are now estimated to be in dire need of assistance. After commending the efforts made by the Sahel States, the African Union Commission, and other partners to help achieve peace and development in the region through the UNSS, the UN chief appealed “to all international partners, including the International Financial Institutions and the business community, to step up.”“Now is the time for collective action. By doing so, we can help build the sustainable, inclusive, secure future that the people of Mali and the Sahel deserve,” he concluded.Watch our audio slideshow on Mali and the importance of the UN’s work there, below: read more

Experiential learning positions posted

Brock University is expanding on its already strong experiential learning opportunities for students.Four new positions have been posted at Brock, three of which provide support to Faculties that don’t yet have a staff person focused specifically on creating connections and opportunities for experiential learning.“These staff positions will work to create partnerships in the community, support faculty looking to build in an experiential component to their course(s), and also to help prepare students for what the experience will entail,” said Sandy Howe, Associate Director, Experiential Education.The positions will support the Faculty of Mathematics & Science, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Humanities and the Goodman School of Business.Over the past few months, Brock has worked to establish what “experiential education” means on the campus, engaging senior administrators, faculty, staff and students in a collaborative process to establish a set of definitions. The University of Victoria was a catalyst for this process, offering resources and research as a foundation that allowed Brock to move forward quickly.Brock knows that impactful learning experiences come in many forms from service-learning to simulations, and field experiences, to creative, entrepreneurial and design projects. These are just a few exciting forms of learning that appear in Brock’s experiential definitions.“One of the major changes on our campus is a new structure for experiential education. We are thrilled to be growing a central team to support these pedagogies in each Faculty,” Howe said.One of the Faculties that currently has support for experiential education is the Goodman School of Business, where service-learning has seen tremendous growth over the years.Gillian Kemp, Service-Learning Relationship Manager for Goodman, knows service-learning has a variety of impacts on both the students and the community partners.“Students gain confidence in their ability to apply what they are learning in the classroom in real world situations, they gain insights into their community and career aspirations and they gain work experience for their resumes and interviews,” she said. “Our community partners also benefit from new ideas and perspective, as well as tangible solutions and tools.”The Experiential Education Co-ordinator positions fall within Co-op, Career and Experiential Education (CCEE) on campus, an area that recently celebrated its first anniversary.If you are interested in being part of something new, collaborative and exciting as Brock grows experiential education opportunities for students, the Experiential Education Co-ordinator postings are currently available here. read more

Météorites deux minéraux découverts formés aux origines du système solaire

first_imgMétéorites : deux minéraux découverts formés aux origines du système solaireDeux minéraux, la Krotite et la Wassonite, ont été pour la première fois observés dans des météorites. La structure de ces éléments laisse supposer qu’ils ont été formés lors de la naissance de notre système solaire.La Krotite et la Wassonite sont deux minéraux qui ont été retrouvés récemment à l’intérieur de météorites. La découverte surprenante anime la communauté scientifique qui espère ajouter les éléments  à la liste des 60 minéraux formés lors de la création du système solaire il y a 4,5 milliards d’années. “Ces 60 minéraux de base ont progressivement évolué pour donner ceux actuellement présents dans notre système solaire”, explique Chi Ma, minéralogiste à l’Institut de Technologie de Californie au National Geographic. Celui-ci dirige l’étude particulièrement centrée sur la Krotite et parue récemment dans la revue American Mineralogist. Il poursuit : “Ce sont nos matières premières, qui évoluent sous différentes conditions physiques, chimiques, biologiques pour donner les 4.500 minéraux actuels de notre planète”.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESALa Krotite a été découverte il y a huit ans dans une météorite retrouvée en Afrique du Nord. En étudiant récemment l’objet, les scientifiques ont découvert un matériau étrange semblable à un œuf craquelé et de la taille d’un grain de riz. Les analyses effectuées en laboratoire ont mis en évidence la formule chimique de cet élément composé d’oxyde de calcium et d’aluminium (CaAl2O4).  Une composition très spécifique qui résulte très certainement d’une combinaison de facteurs regroupant basse pression et des températures au dessus de 1.500 degrés Celsius.La Wassonite a quant à elle été retrouvée dans la météorite Yamato, recueillie dans l’Antarctique il y a environ 42 ans. Au moyen de faisceaux d’ions focalisés, une équipe de chercheurs dirigée par Keiko Nakamura-Messenger a pu mettre en évidence la structure chimique de l’élément composé de seulement de titane et de souffre.De précieux indices pour retracer l’histoire des minéraux Ces nouvelles découvertes représentent de précieux indices sur l’histoire de la formation des minéraux. Selon les astronomes, le système solaire était à la base un nuage de gaz chaud appelé la nébuleuse solaire. Une baisse de température aurait amené les cristaux de poussière à se condenser formant les premiers minéraux dont fait probablement partie la Krotite. “Ce fut l’un des premiers solides formés dans la nébuleuse solaire. C’est ce qui le rend si excitant. Ces minéraux peuvent nous dire ce qui se passe au tout début du système solaire”, souligne Chi Ma. Quant à la Wassonite, les chercheurs devront mener une étude plus approfondie pour déterminer clairement sa période de formation, supposée également à l’origine du système solaire.

Rare Firefall Returns to Yosemite for Two Weeks This February

first_imgOn Instagram, the hashtag #firefall collects a plethora of stunning images captured by nature and photography fans.One user, heyengel, recounts his experience capturing the rare phenonmenon in 2017: “As the firefall started burning from the tail, echoes of cheers erupted from people down in the valley. Not sure if we’ll get the firefall again this year because of the cloud cover, but it’s still one of the best times to visit this winter wonderland.” For a couple of weeks every year, thousands of nature lovers and photographers flock to Yosemite National Park in California to spot (and capture on film) a spectacular phenomenon that looks like a waterfall on fire — a “firefall.”In mid-to-late February, given the right conditions, Horsetail Fall — located over the eastern edge of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley — assumes a striking deep orange glow at sunset.And the 2019 viewing season is now underway — it’s projected to run from now through Feb. 24 and peak next week, Yosemite National Park spokesperson Jamie Richards told Travel + Leisure.However, there’s no guarantee of spotting this amazing sight on a specific day. The unique, all-natural lighting effect happens only on evenings with a clear sky when the waterfall is flowing, according to the National Park Service (NPS). Even some haze or minor cloudiness can greatly diminish or eliminate the effect.When the illusion does occur, it usually lasts for around 10 minutes.Although there was a reservation process in place in 2018, the NPS says no permit or reservation will be required to view Horsetail Fall in 2019. It will be open to the public. 20 Amazing Images of National Parks From SpaceUS National Parks Are a Mess Due to the Government Shutdown Visitors, however, should be prepared to walk at least a mile from their parking location to a viewpoint. The NPS advises firefall watchers to bring warm clothes, boots, and a headlamp or flashlight.Due to accumulated snow in pull-offs, icy roads, and nonexistent shoulders this season, no stopping, parking, or pedestrians will be permitted along Southside Drive between the El Capitan Crossover and Swinging Bridge, the NPS said. No stopping or parking will be permitted on Northside Drive between Camp 4 and El Capitan Crossover, or on El Capitan Crossover. One lane of Northside Drive will be closed to vehicles and bicycles, and will be available for pedestrian traffic.center_img More on to See February ‘Super Snow Moon’ on Feb. 19Photos: Niagara Falls ‘Freezes,’ Transforms Into Winter Wonderland35 Incredible Images of Earth’s Mountains and Volcanoes From Space Stay on targetlast_img read more

Summit Ascent likely to slow Russian Phase 2 development analyst

first_imgMacau-based operator Summit Ascent will likely slow down the Phase 2 development of its Tigre de Cristal resort in Vladivostok, Russia if regulatory uncertainties aren’t eased soon, according to Union Gaming analyst Grant Govertsen.The prediction follows a first reading of a bill by the Russian Duma that would see the possible gaming tax applied to each gaming table or machine doubled, potentially increasing Tigre de Cristal’s monthly tax bill by RUB9,020,000 (US$154,770). VIP, slots growth at Tigre de Cristal sees Summit Ascent profits soar in 1H19 RelatedPosts Summit Ascent completes HK$297 million fundraising exercise for Russian IR expansion Load More Summit Ascent to raise almost HK$300 million for Russian IR expansion via share placement As reported by Inside Asian Gaming in early November, the draft bill proposes doubling the maximum monthly tax rate on each gaming table from RUB125,000 (US$2,145) to RUB250,000 (US$4,290) per gaming table and on each gaming machine from RUB7,500 (US$129) to RUB15,000 (US$258) per gaming machine.Tigre de Cristal has 55 gaming tables and 286 gaming machines.Govertsen also pointed to a lack of enforcement by Russian authorities against illegal gaming venues as a major obstacle in Tigre de Cristal tapping into the domestic market“We believe that the Vladivostok locals market remains significantly under-penetrated, with the company reporting just ~HK$108 million in mass table and slots GGR in 1H17. For a population of ~600k in the city itself, this amount of GGR is too low,” he said in a Wednesday note.“However, and while there has been some enforcement against illegal gaming venues in much closer proximity to the population base relative to the company’s property, the vast majority of locals-oriented GGR is still being captured by illegal venues. Should no further enforcement occur this could effectively flatline mass/slots GGR on a go-forward basis, and, when combined with a potential doubling of taxes, is likely to delay future phases and the developments of the other licensees.”Govertsen said that he “would expect the company to slow-play development of Phase 2, which is currently expected to come online 2H19” – particularly given the lack of progress of other licensee casinos which are needed to create a cluster effect.He also noted Chairman Lawrence Ho’s decision to sell down his stake in Summit Ascent earlier this year from 27% to 19% was a possible indication that he sees greater opportunities elsewhere.last_img read more

Chris Johnson’s 62-yard scamper vs. Baltimore (Week 7 – Oct. 26)Leading 17-10 in the the third quarter of a Monday night affair with the Baltimore Ravens, the Cardinals faced a 1st-and-10 from their own 30-yard line. Carson Palmer handed off to Chris Johnson, who tried the left side of the line. He was pulled down after a 4-yard gain by Baltimore defensive tackle Brandon Williams. Or was he? Johnson came down on top of Williams at the 34, but never hit the ground. After pausing, Johnson got up and sprinted downfield, only to get caught by safety Will Hill at the Ravens’ 8.

The Cardinals won 26-20 in overtime. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) 1. Larry Fitzgerald’s 75-yard playoff reception vs. Green Bay (NFC Divisional Playoffs – Jan. 16)Larry Fitzgerald has had countless highlight plays in his storied career, but this play has to rank in the top five on that list. After Aaron Rodgers had engineered an unbelievable 86-yard touchdown drive that included a 61-yard completion on 4th-and-20 and a Hail Mary touchdown pass to Jeff Janis on the last play of regulation to force overtime, the crowd at University of Phoenix Stadium was stunned silent. It wouldn’t take them long to explode once again. On the first play of overtime, Carson Palmer dropped to pass, felt pressure and spun away from it, rolling to his right. Out of the corner of his eye, he saw Fitzgerald standing all alone at the 35-yard line on the left side of the field. Fitzgerald started upfield, cut right at the 50 and split two Packers defenders. He stiff-armed Morgan Burnett at the 30 and kept weaving toward the goal line. Casey Hayward made a great ankle tackle at the 5-yard line, setting up the Cardinals with a 1st-and-goal and nearly blowing the roof off the stadium. Two plays later, fittingly, Fitzgerald took a shovel pass from Palmer and scored, giving the Cardinals the win and advancing them to the NFC Championship Game. 3. Michael Floyd’s spectacular one-handed catch vs. Philadelphia (Week 15 – Dec. 20) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 5. Jaron Brown’s pinball catch vs. Seattle (Week 10, Nov. 15)The Cardinals had what you would call an up-and-down game against the division rival Seahawks at CenturyLink Field. They dominated play early and led 25-10 midway through the third quarter after a 43-yard field goal from Chandler Catanzaro. That’s when the momentum shifted. Seattle’s defense fueled a stretch where the Seahawks scored three touchdowns in a 6:52 span to take a 29-25 lead. Arizona faced a 2nd-and-7 from the Seattle 49-yard line when Carson Palmer dropped to pass and threw right to a well-covered Jaron Brown. All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman undercut the route and deflected the ball with his right hand, but Brown aggressively went up and caught the ball off the deflection for a huge 10 yard gain that moved the chains. Four plays later, Palmer hit Jermaine Gresham on a 14-yard touchdown pass to give the Cardinals a lead they would not relinquish. They’d go on to win 32-29 to push their record to 7-2 on the season.The Quote: “That’s the thing about J.B., he is tough as nails, that’s why he’s such a great special teams player. He just went up and took it away — and then he made two more big plays. You know, he’s a starter on most teams. ” — Head coach Bruce Arians Tuesday, we looked at the top five defensive plays of the 2015 season for the Arizona Cardinals.Now, it’s a look back at the top five plays on offense — and there were a lot to choose from. The Cardinals set a franchise record and led the NFL with 6,533 yards and their 489 points ranked second in the league, behind only the Carolina Panthers.Here’s what I thought were the top five offensive plays of the season for the Arizona Cardinals: The Quote: “I saw a couple of my guys come running through and I saw a little area to push through when I saw Darren (Fells) picking up a block for me on the way. I saw Mike (Floyd) and Smoke (John Brown) doing the same thing — those guys really led the way for me to get down that far.” — Larry Fitzgerald Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories The Quote: “He’s a grown man. He does not play like a rookie. He runs powerfully, he runs smart. He protects the football, he catches the football extremely well, he blocks extremely well. He’s 225 pounds, I mean that’s not who you want to tackle, especially in the fourth quarter.” — Carson Palmer 0 Comments   Share   One of the areas where Michael Floyd made strides during the 2015 season was in the highlight department. The fourth-year receiver out of Notre Dame had several ridiculous catches during the campaign, but none better than his one-handed snag in a 40-17 Sunday night win over the Eagles in Philly. On a 3rd-and-2 from the Philadelphia 30 and the Cardinals leading 17-10, Carson Palmer took a shot down the right sideline to Floyd, who was well covered by Eagles cornerback Jaylen Watkins. Floyd shielded Watkins with his left side, while laying out to make the catch with his right hand at the 1-yard line. One play later, David Johnson punched it in to extend the Cardinals’ lead.The Quote: “Unbelievable!” — NBC commentator Cris Collinsworth 2. David Johnson’s “Beast Mode” TD run vs. Philadelphia (Week 15 – Dec. 20)Rookie running back David Johnson got his chance to shine late in the season, but he shined brightest at Lincoln Financial Field on national television. Johnson ran for 187 yards and three touchdowns in the Cardinals’ division-clinching 40-17 win over the Eagles, but his second score of the night was one of the best runs in the NFL in 2015. On a 2nd-and-5 from the Philly 47-yard line, Johnson took a handoff from Carson Palmer, ran right and was met by a mass of humanity at the 45. He kept his legs churning though, breaking six or seven tackles and finished it off with a rugged stiff-arm of Philadelphia corner E.J. Biggers at the 10-yard line. The score gave the Cardinals a 17-10 lead and led to a collective “wow” from the millions watching at home.last_img read more
