Super Bowl 52: Patriots elect to wear white
New England is sticking to its superstition.
The Patriots have elected to wear their white road jerseys over their blue home uniforms in Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis against the Eagles, the team announced Tuesday.
Just give them all the props for that, said Torin Dorn, who had 13 points. But we’ve got to be better.
Miami gave 5-foot-7 freshman Chris Lykes his first start with fellow rookie Lonnie Walker IV battling a back problem. Lykes had six points and five assists in 22 minutes.
Larranaga said Walker’s back tightened up so badly Friday night that he couldn’t bend enough to touch his knees, keeping him out of Saturday’s practice and putting his status in question until tipoff. Walker finished with 12 points in 30 minutes.
Miami’s Anthony Lawrence II and Ebuka Izundu each scored 15 points, with Izundu going 7 for 7 off the bench after managing just 12 points and six made baskets in his previous six games combined.
A source told Sporting News that Farwell is interviewing to become the Panthers’ new assistant special teams coach.
Farwell took the same position with Seattle in 2016, one year removed from a four-year stint as a Seahawks special teams captain and backup linebacker.
The Panthers have a vacancy following Chase Blackburn’s promotion to head special teams coach. Blackburn is replacing Thomas McGaughey, whose contract expired. McGaughey has subsequently reached agreement to become the Giants’ new special teams coach.
Farwell carved his NFL niche on special teams after making the Vikings in 2005 as a college free agent from San Diego State. He spent six seasons with the Vikings, earning Pro Bowl honors on special teams in 2009.
