The Los Angeles Rams and Oakland Raiders spent most of the lead-up to the season in the same predicament Gardner Minshew II Jersey , with their Defensive Players of the Year holding out while seeking new contracts.When the teams open the season against each other Monday night in Oakland, that will have changed. top defensive award on the field anchoring the middle in Aaron Donald. The Raiders will be without 2016 winner Khalil Mack, who was traded to Chicago.The Raiders dealt Mack for a package including two first-round draft picks a day after Donald signed a six-year, $135 million deal, with $87 million guaranteed. Oakland was unwilling to pay that price for Mack, forcing defensive coordinator Paul Guenther to shelve plans he made after getting hired on how to use Mack, and proceed the way he approached training camp with the rest of the overhauled defense.“I think I saw the guy in a restaurant in March one time,” Guenther said. “My kids pointed it out to me, ‘Hey Christian Wilkins Jersey , its Khalil Mack. He’s got the new Jordans on.’ You know, I wouldn’t know. With as many new players we brought in, new coaching staff we just kind of got use to him not being here and operating with what we got, so we are going to move along that way.”The Raiders spent much of the offseason trying to improve their pass rush by moving Bruce Irvin to a full-time defensive end position, and drafting P.J. Hall, Arden Key and Maurice Hurst. That group helped generate 12 sacks in the preseason and will have plenty of pressure starting Monday night to fill Mack’s void.“It’s an opportunity for me and the rest of the guys on the D-line,” Key said. “That’s just another opportunity. Khalil Mack is gone. We can’t dwell on it. We have to move forward and somebody has to step up in his spot.”The Rams said they weren’t exactly upset to see Mack traded, considering he has averaged more than 12 sacks and 60 quarterback pressures over the last three seasons. But they noted they still have to face Mack in Week 14 and that the Raiders’ other rushers present enough of a challenge this week.“He’s a great player, and he’s not going to be on the team we’re playing this week Michael Deiter Jersey , but they’ve got plenty of good players, and they’ve got a great defense and a great team that we’re preparing for,” quarterback Jared Goff said. “We’re not thinking very much about Khalil right now.”The Raiders have plenty to worry about on Los Angeles’ defense now that Donald is back to team with three former All-Pros added this offseason: defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.The new-look lineup gives coordinator Wade Phillips one of the game’s best pair of cornerbacks in Peters and Talib, as well as interior rushers in Donald and Suh.The Raiders have a good idea what to expect with Peters and Talib having spent the past few years in the AFC West; Oakland playing against Suh in Miami last year; and Phillips serving as defensive coordinator in Denver in 2015-16 when he faced the Raiders four times overall.“They’re all great players,” quarterback Derek Carr said. “They have a great team, great defense. Great challenge they present us. Then (defensive coordinator) coach Phillips calling it. I’ve gone against him a number of times. He does his stuff, man, and he’s really good at it. It’s going to be a good challenge for us. I can sit here and talk good things about all those guys. They know how I feel about them Daniel Jones Jersey , they’re great players.”The Rams have spent the past week incorporating Donald into the mix after he held out all offseason and training camp. They have experience doing it from last year, when he didn’t report until one day before the season opener and missed the first game.He’s had more than a week of practice and should be ready for the opener for what could be the most star-packed defense in the league.“We haven’t played in any games or any meaningful snaps, so we’re still figuring out how to come together as a defense,” coach Sean McVay said. “You feel good about those two players and some of the other guys that will play with them up front. It looks good right now, but it’s about playing together as a unit and doing a great job against what we know is going to be an excellent challenge with a great offense on Monday night.” RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Of all the records the Seattle Seahawks have accomplished during Pete Carroll’s tenure, he may not be more proud than what they can accomplish this week.The Seahawks enter Week 17 having committed just 10 turnovers all season, with five of those coming in the first two weeks in losses to Denver and Chicago. If Seattle can make it through the regular-season finale against Arizona without committing a turnover, it would join the 2010 New England Patriots and 2011 San Francisco 49ers as having the fewest turnovers in a 16-game season.It might seem like a somewhat obscure accomplishment. But for someone who preaches importance of securing the football the way Carroll does Dexter Lawrence Jersey , it’s a huge deal for the Seahawks. Seattle’s low in turnovers for a full season under Carroll was 14 in 2014.“It’s the No. 1 thing that we emphasize and we’ve been doing it for a long time,” Carroll said on Wednesday. “What our challenge is, is how well can we emphasize it? And how well can we transfer than emphasis so they adopt that as part of their play? The mentality of it; there is a constancy that just goes away if you don’t. You have to be on it because there are unnatural aspects of it when you play the things that you have to do. You have to train and drill with the highest of expectations to get it done.”Seattle being in this position only highlighted the remarkable turnaround since the start of the season and coincided with an emphasis on being a run-first team that started with Week 3 against Dallas.The Seahawks turned around their 0-2 start and five turnovers in those two games and have gone 9-4 over the past 13 games while committing just five turnovers during that time.Seattle didn’t commit a turnover in three straight games beginning in Week 3 and for the past five games the only turnover committed was a poor decision by Russell Wilson late in the first half against Minnesota when he tried to make a desperation pass attempt rather than throwing the ball away.That doesn’t mean there haven’t been close calls, such as last Sunday when Tyler Lockett fumbled a punt only to have it recovered by teammate Tre Flowers. Seattle has fumbled 18 times on the season and lost only four. But the major turnover issues have been completely avoided thus far.“That’s the No. 1 thing (Carroll) talks about every day,” running back Chris Carson said. “When we break meetings, that’s the last thing he says. Before practice that’s the first thing he says. It’s definitely the most important thing.”Carson is responsible for a couple of those turnovers in the midst of running for more than 1,000 yards this season. Carson lost fumbles in Week 1 against Denver when Seattle was still trying to figure out its identity, and Week 11 against Green Bay.The situation against Green Bay was a learning lesson and sign of trust for Carson. He fumbled on the first offensive play of the game and watched Green Bay convert the turnover into a touchdown.But on Seattle’s next possession, Carson got the first carry. It only went for 2 yards but was still important.“It just means that they trust in me and gives me the confidence I need Deandre Baker Jersey ,” Carson said. “I know that when that happened I need to be more cautious the next time I’m out there.”NOTES: Carroll said guard J.R. Sweezy was having additional tests on Wednesday about the extent of his sprained foot suffered against Kansas City. Sweezy was hurt midway through the second quarter. He was replaced by D.J. Fluker, who was only expected to play minimal snaps while recovering from a hamstring injury and ended up in for 61 percent of the offensive snaps. Fluker will be limited in practice this week. … Carroll said S Tedric Thompson (chest) and RT Germain Ifedi (groin) would practice on Wednesday after both missed last Sunday’s win over Kansas City. … Carroll said he had not had much contact with Jody Allen, sister of former Seahawks owner Paul Allen, prior to the contract extension he signed with the team on Monday. “We have not hung out at all over the time, and we had one really significant meeting and a couple of phone talks and she’s been really excited and really fired up about doing this,” Carroll said. “Anybody who is a ’12’ that cares about the Seahawks should be really fired up about how she’s looking at this and how she wants to go about it. She has a great love and spirit about the area and the club,” he said.
