Going into the draft Riley Ridley Jersey , the Miami Dolphins‘ plan was to win later.Josh Rosen will try to change that.If the Arizona Cardinals’ castoff quarterback shows the Dolphins this year that he can be a franchise QB, they’ll be ahead of schedule in their rebuilding project under first-year coach Brian Flores.And if Rosen is a bust for the second time in as many NFL seasons, the Dolphins will likely have a lousy 2019 record, which means they’ll be well-positioned to draft their quarterback of the future a year from now.The Dolphins traded a 2019 second-round draft pick and a 2020 fifth-round selection to Arizona for Rosen, a modest investment considering the potential payoff. Rosen was the No. 10 overall pick last year and had a rough rookie season for a team that went 3-13.He’ll likely beat out veteran newcomer Ryan Fitzpatrick for the Dolphins’ starting job this year, in part because they need to find out whether he’s a keeper.Here are things to know about other moves by the Dolphins during the draft:WHO THEY GOTThe Dolphins landed two players likely to start as rookies — Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins in the first round, and versatile Wisconsin offensive lineman Michael Deiter in the third round. Their third-day picks were Wisconsin linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel in the fifth round, Ohio State right tackle Isaiah Prince in the sixth round, and Auburn fullback Chandler Cox and Washington running back Myles Gaskin in the seventh round.“We’ve made some progress,” general manager Chris Grier said. “We feel better, but there’s still work to do. We’re not where we want to be, but we’re happy where we are.”SURPRISE MOVEThe Dolphins weren’t expected to use a high pick on a quarterback, because the crop of prospects in 2020 is more promising.“During his rookie season Greedy Williams Jersey , obviously there were some ups, there were some downs,” Flores said. “That’s the case for all rookies. But this guy has a lot of arm talent.”HOW THEY DIDThe Dolphins began the draft in the market for an edge rusher, and they’re still shopping for one. There’s a significant need at the position because the Dolphins parted with three veteran defensive ends this offseason, including five-time Pro Bowl end Cameron Wake, while adding no marquee free agents.They’re also in the market for help at right tackle and cornerback, and depth is thin at most positions.WHAT’S NEXT?The Dolphins may plug some holes in post-draft free agency, but some long-term solutions will have to wait until 2020. That’s when Grier and Flores are expected to make a big splash, with a favorable salary cap situation next year and 10 picks in the draft, not including two possible compensatory choices.They could have seven picks in the first four rounds.“The plan was to get as many picks as we could going forward, to build this thing right,” Grier said. “We’ll see where it goes.” EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — No one seems to be asking questions about Eli Manning remaining the quarterback of the New York Giants these days.The two-time Super Bowl MVP has quieted his critics Sione Takitaki Jersey , throwing for five touchdowns and no interceptions in wins over the San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers the past two weeks.In beating the Niners, Manning engineered a late fourth-quarter drive capped by a touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard with less than a minute to play. He was nearly perfect Sunday, hitting 17 of 18 passes for 231 yards and three TDs in a 38-35 win over the Bucs.His 94.4 completion percentage was a team record in a game with at least 10 attempts, and it was tied for third highest in a game in NFL history with a minimum of 15 passing attempts. Alex Smith, when he played with the 49ers, and Ryan Tannehill of Miami share the top mark at 94.7 percent.“You give Eli time to throw and that’s what you are going to get,” Shepard said Wednesday before the Giants (3-7) practiced for Sunday’s game at Philadelphia (4-6). “The offensive line has been doing a great job blocking. He has been making the throws. The throws are on point.”Manning tied his career high by completing his first 11 passes before failing to hook up with halfback Saquon Barkley on a wheel route.The Eagles have had their way against the Giants. They have won four straight, including a 34-13 win at MetLife Stadium on Oct. 11, a game in which the Giants were down 24-6 at halftime and 31-6 midway through the third quarter.Manning finished 24 of 43 for 281 yards. However, he was sacked four times and threw an interception on the second play from scrimmage, setting up the first of three touchdown passes by Carson Wentz.“Last time we played them, I know exactly why they beat us,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “We didn’t do anything that you need to do against any type of team to win. We turned the ball over Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , we gave them big plays, we just didn’t play well enough to beat any team, so we have to fix that. That’s more about us.”The 37-year-old Manning didn’t give much of an answer when asked about the Eagles’ recent success against New York.“They’ve been good teams and obviously hey, every time you play, you got an opportunity,” he said. “It’s just about what matters is this game and this opportunity to go out there and get a win.”The Giants are playing better heading into this meeting. The two-game winning streak is their longest since December 2016 and they have made changes, particularly on the offensive line. Spencer Pulley is now the center and Jamon Brown has been excellent at right guard since being added to the lineup two weeks ago.Tight end Evan Engram, who missed the Eagles game with a knee injury, is back and Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, had his best game last week, rushing for 142 yards and scoring three touchdowns: two running and one on a pass.“I think we’re running the ball better than we did, so I feel like we’re playing better football Austin Seibert Jersey , but we got to continue doing that,” Manning said. “They’re a good team, they’re a good defense, they got a good front four and they’re a little banged-up in the secondary, but they’ll have a good plan and we just got to go execute.”NOTES: A win by Dallas (5-5) over the Redskins (6-4) would help the Giants on Thanksgiving. Manning isn’t going to root.“We’ll watch the game, but you never know how it’s all going to end up or play out, so just watch,” he said.
