RENTON, Wash. Zach Gentry Jersey . -- At some point soon, the questions will stop about Jimmy Grahams knee. What hes doing on the field wont be prefaced by what happened last November.For now, everything Graham is doing for the Seattle Seahawks is noteworthy because of what took place on Nov. 29, 2015 -- a knee injury that very few have recovered from in such spectacular fashion.Its a great statement about his ability to accomplish all that he did in rehab to get his mind right and his body right to do what hes doing, and just to make some really cool plays, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. Its a big statement about him, but I think hes ready to go now.As the Seahawks enter their bye this week at 3-1, there are several worthwhile performances to note. From quarterback Russell Wilsons ability to play through a sprained right ankle and sprained left knee, to a defense that continues to show signs of again being a dominant unit, its been a successful first quarter of the season for the Seahawks.Grahams stunning recovery and play -- especially the past two weeks -- may be at the top of that list.Im just trying to do my job. Im just blessed to be on the field with my guys, Graham said. Its been such a long road for me, and to finally be part of what this team has going on and to be truly part of it, it feels amazing.In the past two weeks, the impact Graham was expected to have when he was first traded from New Orleans to Seattle has started to be realized. Graham has posted two straight 100-yard receiving games for the first time since early in the 2013 season. He had six catches for 100 yards and a touchdown -- all in the first half -- in a win over San Francisco, then followed up with six catches for 113 yards last week against the New York Jets.When Seattle returns from its bye, Graham could become the first player in franchise history to have three straight 100-yard receiving games.The connection between Wilson and Graham felt forced in the early stages of last year, but is now developing naturally within Seattles offense.We are on it. Weve been doing that for a while, Wilson said. I think were ready to roll. The way weve been practicing, its been great having him back out there. Jimmy Graham looked special.What Graham has accomplished the past two weeks stands out even more when context is added. Graham is doing this just 10 months after suffering a torn patellar tendon in his right knee in a victory over Pittsburgh. Its an injury that typically takes between nine and 12 months to regain a similar level of movement and strength from prior to the injury.A number of NFL players have struggled to return from the same injury, most notably New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, who was injured midway through the 2014 season and didnt return to an NFL game until Week 1 of this season.A study by the American Journal of Sports Medicine released earlier this year noted a 50 percent return-to-play rate for NFL players undergoing orthoscopic repair of patellar tendon injuries, significantly lower than the return-to-play rates from other types of knee injuries.All of which makes Grahams recovery even more impressive.Im just a little different. Ive worked literally every second of the day on my knee -- if Im not flying -- which is kind of more of a soul thing, Graham said. But for me, Ive put so much into this to try and be back here for this team Week 1 and to try and make it back to start the season. Hard work pays off and there is really no substitute for it.The bye falls at a good time for Seattle with the injuries to Wilson, wide receiver Tyler Lockett and others, allowing them two weeks of recovery. It also provides a break for Graham. Its been a constant grind for nearly 11 months to recover, rehabilitate and ultimately prove he was capable of getting back on the field and showing the athleticism and ability that once made him the top tight end in football.He just kept digging in and clawing and scratched out and got going. There was a time when we didnt know which way it would go, you never know if theres a setback in there, Carroll said. He just made it through it and had great determination and great encouragement and guts and all that, and he pulled it off. I know this is a surgery that doesnt always go like that. Were very fortunate and thrilled for him.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Jerome Bettis Youth Jersey . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. Kevin Greene Jersey .

Rob Nelson of ESPN Stats & Information revisits the worst bad beats from the weekends gambling action.?Closing lines are courtesy of Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and pick percentages are via Wunderdog Sports.SaturdayOklahoma State Cowboys at Kansas JayhawksClosing line: Oklahoma State -23Kansas was again a big underdog in conference play, but it looked competitive in this one. The Jayhawks trailed by just four at halftime, and were easily covering the 23-point spread.Turnovers would ultimately cost those who bet Kansas. The home underdogs turned it over on three of their first four possessions in the second half, as Oklahoma State scored 17 points off those mistakes. Despite those giveaways, the Jayhawks were still down just 17 late in the fourth -- but Chris Carson put an exclamation point on the Cowboys win with a 16-yard touchdown run. That was a costly exclamation point for those who bet Kansas, as it gave the Cowboys a 24-point win.Final score:?Oklahoma State 44, Kansas 20 (Oklahoma State covers)Hawaii Rainbow Warriors at Air Force FalconsClosing over/under:?58.5It seems there is one of these bad beats every week -- a college football game that goes over the total after multiple overtimes. But the fact that its happened before doesnt make it easier for those who took the under in this one.Hawaii led 10-7 at halftime, with the total points nowhere near the closing over/under of 58.5. The scoring picked up a little in the second half, but it was still just 20-20 late in the fourth. Air Force proceeded to go on a 19-play drive that killed the final 8:18 of regulation, and had a 32-yard field goal to win it. But Luke Stregel missed it wide right, sending the game into overtime. If it was decided after just one overtime, those on the under would win. But a pair of touchdowns sent the game into double overtime, where Hawaiis Marcus Kemp caught a 25-yard touchdown on the first play to push the total over.Final score:?Hawaii 34, Air Force 27 in 2OT (Game goes over)SundayCleveland Browns at Cincinnati BengalsClosing first half line:?Bengals -7The Bengals closed as an 11.5-point favorite and were favored by a touchdown on the first-half line, but the most memorabble play from this game was one to forget if you took Browns +7 for the first half. Rod Woodson Jersey. A.J. Greens 48-yard touchdown on the final play in the second quarter turned a four-point Bengals lead to a 21-10 advantage at halftime, and first-half wagers on the Browns from winners to losers. It was a tough loss for those who took the underdog, as Cleveland actually led 10-7 late in the second quarter. A quick Bengals scoring drive capped by a Brandon LaFell 44-yard touchdown and a Browns punt -- on their first drive after losing Cody Kessler to injury -- set up the potential for a Hail Mary. Then A.J. Green did the rest.Halftime score:?Bengals 21, Browns 10 (Bengals cover)Seattle Seahawks at Arizona CardinalsClosing line:?Cardinals -2.5In a game that ended after midnight on the East Coast, those who took the Cardinals as a small favorite are wishing they took the under instead.With less than five minutes left in regulation, Arizona led 3-0 and hadnt allowed Seattle to cross midfield all night. But the Seahawks blocked Ryan Quigleys punt and took over at the Cardinals 22-yard line. Seattle settled for a Steven Hauschka field goal to tie it, and that score would hold until overtime.The teams exchanged field goals on their first possessions in overtime and were now in sudden death. Arizona proceeded to drive down to the Seattle 1-yard line, and those who bet the Cardinals were going to be winners. According to ESPNs win probability model, the Cardinals had a 99.6 percent of winning with 4:13 left in overtime -- but Arizona couldnt punch it in and Chandler Catanzaro somehow missed a game-winning 24-yard field goal. Hauschka would later miss a chip shot to win it, costing those on the Seattle moneyline a winning bet as well (those bets pushed).Neither team scored a touchdown on Sunday night, but it was clear that Arizona had the edge. The Cardinals had 186 more yards of total offense, more than twice as many first downs and had the ball for nearly 18 minutes longer than Seattle.Final score:?Seahawks 6, Cardinals 6 in OT (Seahawks cover) ' ' '
