With the NFL at its midseason mark, lets take a look back at offseason moves -- good or bad -- that are most impacting the 2016 season.Read the full story below or click on the links below to go directly to your team.ARI | ATL | BAL | BUF | CAR | CHI | CIN | CLE | DAL | DEN | DET | GB | HOU | IND | JAC | KC | LA | MIA | MIN | NE | NO | NYG | NYJ | OAK | PHI | PIT | SD | SF | SEA | TB | TEN | WASArizona CardinalsThe move: Acquiring pass-rusher Chandler Jones Jones has five sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and a pass breakup during his first eight games with Arizona. The Cardinals rank second in defensive expected points added (EPA) per game, up from fifth last season. They are allowing 17.5 points per game, down from 19.6 last season. Arizona was hoping Jones addition could help put the Cardinals over the top. Its not Jones fault the offense has fallen off this season.Atlanta FalconsThe move: Signing center Alex Mack in free agency Mack and receiver Mohamed Sanu were the big-ticket additions to the Falcons offense. Austin Hooper, Taylor Gabriel and Aldrick Robinson are the only other offensive newcomers to have played at least 100 snaps this season. Mack has stabilized the offensive line and taken pressure off quarterback Matt Ryan, who leads the NFL in touchdown passes with 23. The Falcons are averaging an additional 12.7 points per game this season compared with last season. Their offense is averaging 3.6 touchdowns per game, which ranks eighth out of 352 offenses since 2006 (the 2015 Falcons offense ranks 188th on that list with 2.2 per game). Johnny Unitas Jersey . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Quincy Wilson Jersey . Toronto has dropped games to Indiana and Miami since a five-game winning streak and closed out a three-game road trip at 1-2. http://www.authenticfootballshopcolts.com/authentic-tarell-basham-jersey.html . Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. Erik Swoope Jersey . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. Darryl Morris Jersey . Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes. The 21-year-old has three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating in 24 games with the American Hockey Leagues Oklahoma City Barons this season. NEW YORK -- If anyone needed a reminder of the power of sport, the power of a moment in sport, one wouldnt have to look anymore at YouTube for one of the memorable football highlights.It was the 2013 spring game at the University of Nebraska. Decked in red-and-white, then-7-year-old Jack Hoffman carried the ball for a 69-yard touchdown run.The video posted by the school has been watched nearly nine million times.That 7-year-old turned 11 this week. Diagnosed with brain cancer at age 5, Jack Hoffman has had two rounds of chemotherapy and two different brain tumor surgeries.Hes doing great, said his father, Andy Hoffman. His MRI recently has shown some suspicious activity, so we are concerned. He has an MRI in Boston next week, so were concerned about maybe having to start treatment again.Something to brighten your day. Jack Hoffman with a 69 yard touchdown in the 2013 Nebraska Spring Game https://t.co/At5EIx1csD via @YouTube- ESPN_Motorsports (@ESPNMotorsports) September 28, 2016Were going to let tomorrow worry about itself.Andy Hoffman and his family started the Team Jack Foundation before that famous touchdown and had raised $300,000. Through the power of sport and hard work, it now has raised 10 times that amount with another $3 million in matching funds that the family is donating for pediatric brain cancer research and clinical trials that they hope will avoid the situation they found themselves in with a treatment program developed 30 years ago.It was no surprise that the NASCAR Foundations Betty Jane France Humanitarian Award went to Andy Hoffman. Its not because this charity was any more worthy than the other three finalists, but when the $100,000 award (the other finalists earned $25,000) was put up foor an online vote, it is pretty easy to remember watching that 7-year-old Jack and the emotions it stirred.ddddddddddddIts a huge credit to the power of sports, Andy Hoffman said Tuesday night prior to the award being announced. I always tell people when Jack scored that touchdown run in the spring of 2013, he didnt just score a touchdown for the Nebraska Cornhuskers for the red team, he scored a touchdown for pediatric brain cancer research.Thats what thats been all about. Thats what weve been able to do with that entire platform.Introducing Hoffman at the NASCAR Foundation Honors Gala on Tuesday night was Martin Truex Jr., whose own foundation was created with similar goals as far as developing new, pediatric-centric cancer treatments. He had spent the day with his longtime girlfriend, Sherry Pollex, in a media blitz to talk about Pollexs battle with ovarian cancer and their foundations efforts in that arena.Its amazing, Truex said about Hoffman. Its an unbelievable story and his commitment is incredible.Jack Hoffman was at the event. He remembers his iconic touchdown run maybe a little different than others.I was freaked out that morning, he said.The shy 11-year-old -- stoked by getting a mini drum for his birthday this week -- admits he has watched the video of the touchdown a few times.He lived it -- he has an ESPY as the best moment of 2013 -- and continues to fight.We see so many kids affected by this disease that arent doing as well as Jack, Andy Hoffman said. So from our perspective, hes doing awesome. Were going to just keep battling and fighting until we beat this thing.
