Arizona Cardinals guardCheap Denzel Perryman Jersey Mike Iupati is mowing down everything in front of him this preseason."I'm just playing ball," the 6-foot-5, 331-pound left guard said after the team practiced in the heat Monday. "Taking that year off makes you appreciate football, made my body feel young again."A triceps injury in the opener wiped out the rest of the 2017 season for Iupati.In the offseason, as he entered the fourth year of a five-year, $40 million contract he signed with Arizona, Iupati agreed to a $3 million pay cut to come back for what under the new deal could be his final season in the desert. He will earn $5 million this year."I just figured it was better than going somewhere else to start new," he said. "I'm starting new here."And so far Iupati seems to love the physical, run-oriented offense installed by new coach Steve Wilks and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.Pro Football Focus gave Iupati a 97.2 rating for his 31 snaps in Arizona's two preseasons game. That made him the NFL's highest-rated player this preseason."The man is playing about as good as anyone I've seen play up front," quarterback Sam Bradford said. "This camp, just watching him play, it's been pretty impressive both in the run game and the pass game. He just seems to be kind of swallowing guys up out there."Left tackle D.J. Humphries sees Iupati at work up close. This is Tyrell Williams Jersey , Humphries reminds people, a player who has been to four Pro Bowls. But injuries have kept Humphries and Iupati from playing together much, and Humphries loves what he's seeing.While Iupati is a quiet guy who rarely says much, Humphries said he's seen the big guard explode with emotion on the field this preseason."I can look over and see that dude pumped about whoopin' somebody, seeing him beating his chest for the first time on the grass, with me beside him, it gives me chills," Humphries said. "It's a scary feeling to see that dude — as calm, cool and collected as he is (normally) — out of his mind on the field. The first time I've ever seen him like that."The first team's offensive line play probably has been the most impressive thing about the Cardinals in their first two preseason games. Newcomers Justin Pugh and Andre Smith are at right guard and right tackle, respectively. Starting center A.Q. Shipley went down with a season-ending knee injury before the first preseason game, but rookie Mason Cole has filled in well.Iupati calls the line "awesome.""We're doing good, just communicating with each other and having fun http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-isaac-rochell-jersey ," he said.Wilks calls the offensive line the strength of the team."I think they've proven that the way they performed in the first two games, particularly the Ones, coming off the ball and creating a new line of scrimmage," he said. "I think they've accepted the challenge and they've taken a lot of pride in that."Iupati, 31, is entering his ninth NFL season.The first five were with San Francisco, where he was a first-round draft pick — the 17th selection overall — out of Idaho in 2010. He started 75 regular-season games and eight postseason contests for the 49ers before signing as a free agent with the Cardinals in 2015.He has said he wants to play in the league for 10 years and he's showing lately that he still can be an elite blocker.As usual, his reaction came in just a few words."I'm doing it for my family and my teammates," he said. "I'm just out there working to get better."Notes: General manager Steve Keim's five-week suspension by the team for a DUI arrest is up Tuesday. There was no word officially on whether he will be back. ... The Cardinals have Tuesday off, then practice each of the next three days. They play at Dallas on Sunday night. The Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Chargers have made the trip abroad to London for Sunday's game with their seasons going in opposite directions on offense.The Chargers (4-2) are on a three-game winning streak with one of the more well-balanced offenses in the league while the Tians (3-3) have dropped two straight and haven't scored a touchdown the past two weeks.Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariotta said there is plenty of urgency going into the game, while also trying not to push too hard."It's finding the happy medium. When it comes down to it, it's just making plays http://www.chargerscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-austin-ekeler-jersey ," he said. "When you're out here in practice, it's getting comfortable with the game plan, making sure that everybody knows the little details. From there, it's just the process."If the Titans are going to be successful on Sunday, they needs to commit to keeping Mariotta upright and also recommitting to the run game. Mariotta was sacked 11 times in last Sunday's 21-0 loss to Baltimore. The performance was surprising because the Titans had their top six offensive linemen back, including both tackles who've missed time because of injuries, and they had allowed only nine sacks combined over the first five games.One step toward taking pressure off Mariotta would be finding a way to get running back Derrick Henry more involved. Henry came into this season having led the Titans with 744 yards rushing last season despite starting only two games, and he ran for 156 yards in their playoff victory last January. But the 2015 Heisman Trophy winner had a season-low seven carries for 21 yards in last week's loss. Henry could be very helpful against a Chargers defense that is giving up 4.2 yards per carry.Los Angeles has been firing on all cylinders offensively. Quarterback Philip Rivers has a 115.1 passer rating, which leads the AFC and is second in the NFL. A key to Rivers' hot start is that he has been sacked only seven times.Running back Melvin Gordon has rushed for more than 100 yards in two of the past three weeks and is averaging 5.7 yards per carry.Rivers said the biggest key for this week has been on maintaining a familiar schedule despite being away from home.The Chargers stayed in Cleveland after last Sunday's win against the Browns and practiced at Baldwin-Wallace University."We kind of talked about it as a group. Whatever you normally do, make sure you do it. There's going to be plenty more time to do more, but make sure you do it whether it be a rehab routine you have, something you do recovery or studying Joe Barksdale Jersey ," Rivers said.Here are other things to watch during the NFL's second straight week at Wembley Stadium:EARLY POSITIONINGAs the season gets closer to the midway point both teams are looking to stay in prime postseason position. The Chargers, who haven't been in the playoffs since 2013, are only a game behind Kansas City in the AFC West, but also in good early shape for a wild-card spot. The Titans are in a three-way tie for the top spot in the AFC South."We want to get this win and be able to rest up on a positive note. It always sucks if you were able to lose a game and then you have a bye week, then you have a long time to process and think about it. We want to come off on a good note." Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo said.STOUT DEFENSEThe Titans' defense is allowing the third-fewest points in the league at 17.8 per game. They have also been very tough in the red zone, allowing only six touchdowns in 16 opportunities (37.5 percent).SEARCHING FOR DAVISTennessee wide receiver Corey Davis set career highs with nine receptions for 161 yards in a Sept. 30 win over Philadelphia. But Davis has only five receptions for 73 yards the past two weeks as the Titans have been kept out of the end zone.PASS RUSH REBOUNDSThe Chargers had only eight sacks in the first four games, but have eight the past two weeks. They are still missing defensive end Joey Bosa (foot), but defensive tackle Corey Liuget's return from a four-game league suspension has resulted in fewer double teams to Melvin Ingram and other players.KEEP AN EYE ONThe Chargers kickers. Caleb Sturgis missed last Sunday's game because of a quad injury, which meant Michael Badgley became the seventh kicker to make a field goal for the team since the start of last season. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said it is likely to come down to a game-time decision.Sturgis' future has been in doubt since he missed four extra points in the first five games.AP Pro Football Writer Teresa Walker contributed to this story.Follow Joe Reedy at joereedy
