Super Bowl 52 national anthem video: Watch Pink sing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’

Before Super Bowl 52’s kickoff between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots, pop singer Pink performed the national anthem.

The rating is down 3 percent from last year’s game, which drew a 48.8 overnight rating and ended up with an average of 111.3 million viewers for FOX. The final rating was 45.3 in a game that featured the Patriots making a historic comeback over the Atlanta Falcons.

We know he’s capable of huge nights as a shot-blocker and just about the only fault in his game is his lack of assists, an area where Harden will always have a distinct advantage. If Davis can stay healthy, and that’s always a big question, he has a chance to leapfrog Harden on a Pelicans team that needs him to score and rebound even more in the absence of DeMarcus Cousins.

Jim McCormick: I’ll take The Brow over The Beard. Since DeMarcus Cousins was injured in late January against Harden’s Rockets, Davis leads the NBA with 23.2 shots per game and is the centerpiece of New Orleans’ offense.

Ottawa made it 4-2 midway through the third as Borowiecki, with his third of the season, had a wide-open net after catching Domingue out of position. The goal was initially waved off due to goaltender interference, but the Senators challenged and upon review it was ruled a good goal.

Jeffery told reporters during the week leading up to the Super Bowl that the team doesn’t practice the dances ahead of time.

We just come up with stuff from what we see in movies and other things, our experiences from life, he said, via Keith Groller of The Morning Call. The first thing we said we’d do off a big run was the bowling ball. Then with a big pass play, we were going to do a home run. We just started to roll with it.

The storyline is, they outworked us and they showed us they wanted it more tonight, said forward Justin Williams, an alternate captain with Staal out. That’s frustrating, because we’ve got to be better, and certainly I’m at the top of that list.

Eagles’ Ronald Darby, Caleb Sturgis expected to miss time

An MRI revealed that Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby’s dislocated ankle will not require surgery, a team source confirmed to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Coach Doug Pederson would not confirm the report during his news conference on Monday, saying he is still gathering information.

A team source confirmed that Darby received the best possible diagnosis, and doctors believe he is in a 4-6 week timeframe to rehab and return. The team has encouraged Darby to get a second opinion, and Darby is expected to see Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot and ankle orthopedic specialist in Charlotte, North Carolina, the source added.

Kicker Caleb Sturgis, meanwhile, injured his hip early in the season opener against Washington on Sunday and is expected to miss time. A source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Sturgis is expected to miss four weeks. Pederson said the Eagles will work out kickers this week.

The Free Press is reporting among the punters the team is bringing in for workouts are former Miami punter Matt Darr and Drew Butler, who was a camp leg for the Lions in 2014.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said Monday he didn’t think fitting in to the team on short notice was more difficult for a punter than other positions — including offensive line, secondary and quarterback.

“I can think there are a lot that are a lot more difficult,” Caldwell said. “But it’s just a matter of a guy doing his job, plain and simple. There are going to be some things he’s not going to know right away. We can limit that but if he does his main job, that’s what counts.”

Caldwell also declined — again — to explain how Martin was injured this summer. Caldwell had initially said Martin would be back during training camp, but he never participated in practice. When asked if he was disappointed in Martin for getting hurt, Caldwell didn’t answer the question and walked off the podium.steelers_037
