SEATTLE -- Manny Machado and the Baltimore Orioles are working extra hard for their wins lately. Machado lifted a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 Sunday. The Orioles took three of four in the series, twice winning in extra innings. Baltimore is 11-3 in extras this season, including six straight wins. Manager Buck Showalter said Machado had a "stick-your-nose-over-the-plate-and-get-it-done" at-bat. Adam Jones opened the 10th with a double into the left-field corner off Yoervis Medina (4-2). Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis walked to load the bases. After J.J. Hardy popped out, Machado hit a flyball to deep centre. "He was challenging me. His best pitch is his fastball," Machado said. "He started with a strike. Then he comes up and in. So Im down 0-2 real quick. He tried to get me out with a fastball down and in, and I got it up and put it in play." Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon didnt like what Medina threw Machado. "It wasnt a good pitch, it was a strike," McClendon said. "He was trying to get a groundout. He went at him with his best stuff. It just didnt work." Machado also singled and scored in the third inning and had an RBI single in the eighth. T.J. McFarland (4-2) worked one inning for the victory. His effort came on a day when his grandmother passed away in Chicago. He plans to leave the team beginning Monday for at least three days to attend her funeral. Zach Britton struck out the side in the 10th for his 20th save in 23 opportunities. Dustin Ackley had three hits for the Mariners and is batting .375 in 21 games this month. "They got runners on at the end and they were able to get the sac fly, which was huge," Ackley said. "We just didnt take advantage and they did." Mariners reliever Brandon Maurer had not allowed an earned run in 10 previous relief appearances, a span of 15 innings, before Baltimore took a 2-1 lead in the eighth. The Orioles loaded the bases off Maurer with two outs, then Machado bounced a one-hopper to the left side. Shortstop Chris Taylor caught the ball but threw awkwardly and high to second baseman Robinson Cano, pulling him off the bag. It was ruled a hit and Jones scored. "It was frustrating. I really thought I should have had that. It got away from me a little bit," Taylor said. "I dont think I rushed it, just made a bad throw. I dont have any explanation for it. It just happened." Orioles reliever Darren ODay, who had not allowed a run in his previous 14 appearances -- a stretch of 15 1-3 innings -- came on in the eighth to protect the lead. Mike Zunino connected with two outs for his 15th home run. The tying shot was the Mariners first home run in six games. "Darren has been pretty much perfect this year," Showalter said. "We owed him. We picked him up today." The Mariners got four hits in the second inning but managed just one run. Kyle Seager opened with a single off the wall, but was thrown out at second by right fielder Nick Markakis. Corey Hart and Zunino singled and Taylor, called up Thursday for his first big league experience, got his first RBI with a double. NOTES: Medina lost on his 26th birthday. ... Showalter will give Wei-Yin Chen a few extra days between starts. Chen will next take the mound Friday when Seattle visits Camden Yards. "Wei-Yin had his top pitch count of the year (109 Thursday) and I want to keep guys on turn," Showalter said. ...

The announcement from Rutgers President Robert Barchi, who said there was a "miscommunication" about the speeches, is the latest development in a strange saga surrounding the May 18 ceremony. The New Jersey university initially announced that former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice would give the keynote address, and school officials maintained that she would not be "disinvited" as some students and faculty protested her selection, including holding a sit-in last week. They objected largely because of her role in deciding the U.S. would go to war in Iraq. But on Saturday, Rice withdrew from the speech. On Monday, former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean, who was one of the chairmen of the Sept. 11 Commission, was named as the new keynote speaker. Hours after that announcement, LeGrand tweeted that he had been offered the chance to give the speech, but that the university rescinded the offer "for political reasons." Rutgers spokesman Greg Trevor said when university officials spoke with LeGrand, they may have given the impression that he was to be the keynote speaker, when that was not the plan. LeGrand will speak before Kean at the ceremony. LeGrand did not return a message from The Associated Press seeking further details. He told NJ.com that athletic director Julie Hermann told him on Monday that Rutgers had decided tto go with another speaker.dddddddddddd Trevor said he would look into that assertion. "I just want an explanation," LeGrand told the website. "I wish somebody would have given me a call tonight and explained to me why. Then I can understand, but dont just leave me hanging." In his statement Tuesday afternoon, Barchi said LeGrand had been invited as one of multiple speakers. "It was never our intention that Eric would be the only speaker. We have resolved that miscommunication and are delighted to have him participate," Barchi said. "Eric holds a special place in the hearts of the class of 2014 and the entire university community. We are thrilled that he will be joining us on stage to make this special occasion ever more memorable." LeGrand also will receive a degree at the ceremony. He was paralyzed from the neck down while making a tackle on a kickoff during a 2010 game against Army. He now is able to breathe on his own and stand upright with the help of a metal frame. LeGrand is known mostly for his hopeful outlook. He has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, helped with Rutgers football broadcasts, become a motivational speaker and signed a symbolic contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they were coached by his former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano. Last fall, LeGrand became the first football player to have his number retired by the university. LeGrand told the Home News Tribune of East Brunswick that he was mapping out what he would say in a speech. "I was just going to give inspirational words about how they should attack life," he said. "All the things Ive learned so far."

ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Joni Ortio made 26 saves as the Abbotsford Heat defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs 4-1 in American Hockey League action on Saturday night. The 23-year-old Ortio picked up his 19th win of the year, one off the league lead, though Hamilton snapped his shutout streak at 107 minutes and 41 seconds. Markus Granlund had a goal and an assist for Abbotsford (28-14-4), who are 3-0-2 in their past five. Max Reinhart, Josh Jooris and Derek Smith also scored. Stefan Fournier scored for Hamilton (20-20-4). The Bulldogs have just one win in their past six games and scored just three goals in those five losses. Robert Mayer made 26 saves in the loss. Reinhart opened the scoring at the 7:56 mark of the first on the power play. Markus Granlund crept to the right face-off dot to release a hard wrist shot and Reinhart was there to quickly bag the rebound for his 10th of the year. Jooris doubled the lead with 42 seconds to go in the first. Sven Baertschi was checked off the puck in the high slot, but Jooris pounced on it and beat Mayer with a deke move for his sixth goal of the season. Granlund made it 3-0 at 3:33 of the third on a short-handed goal. Carter Bancks chipped the puck to himself, creating a 2-on-1 rush with Granlund and the Finnish forward backhanded the Bancks saucer pass past an outstretched Mayer. The Bulldogs solved Ortio at 7:41 of the third as Greg Pateryns shot was deflected by Fournier for just his second goal of the year. Smith floated a shot from centre into the empty net with 45 seconds to play to round out the scoring. The Bulldogs power play unit, third-worst in the AHL, has been held scoreless in its last 32 attempts. Dennis Smith Jr. Swingman Jersey .

Dennis Smith Jr. Blue Jersey . - The Baltimore Ravens have hired Steve Spagnuolo to be their secondary coach and assistant head coach.TORONTO - For the streaking Raptors, the element of surprise is rapidly dissipating with each passing victory. The word is out: theyre not to be taken lightly. Now, its not just that theyre winning, but its how theyre winning and who theyre beating that has put Toronto back on the NBA radar. "You win in Dallas and win at Oklahoma City in particular, those are like springboard games," said Frank Vogel, coach of the league-best Indiana Pacers, moments before his team dropped a 95-82 stunner in Toronto Wednesday evening. "Theres a residual effect that carries with you over the next period of games, next stretch of games." "You just play with more confidence, more togetherness," he continued. "And thats what theyre going through right now." Add the Pacers to that list of monumental, confidence-boosting casualties. It had all the makings of a long night at the office for the Raptors in the second game of a back-to-back, fresh off a hard-fought comeback win in Chicago. Regardless of the outcome, Dwane Casey had planned to use Wednesdays contest as a litmus test to measure his improving club against an elite defensive opponent. "Well find out how far we need to go or if were there already," Casey said before the game. "Last year or even two months ago [in this situation] I dont know what we would have done but were meeting the challenge," the Raptors coach added after the win, the Raptors fourth straight and ninth in 12 contests. Again, Toronto proved to be adaptable facing a top-five defence for the second straight night, grinding out another low-scoring affair by making timely plays on both ends of the floor. "t;Were going to go out there and battle with the best of em, night in and night out," exclaimed DeMar DeRozan, who scored 10 of his game-high 26 points in the fourth quarter.dddddddddddd "We dont care who you throw out there in front of us, we understand theyre going to throw a punch and were going to throw punches back." Toronto outscored the visiting Pacers 55-38 in the second half, 29-19 in the fourth quarter and totaled 27 assists on 32-made field goals on the evening. "The toughness of our team is just building every single night," Kyle Lowry boasted after recording a season-high 14 assists, the most hes registered as a Raptor, to go along with 13 points. "Were just all out there playing. Just trying to find out how we can win games." "Indiana is one of the top teams in the league but our guys battled," Casey echoed. "We came in hungry and fought for 48 minutes, stayed with the game plan and executed." For the first time since 2010 Toronto is a .500 team 30 games into the season. Its also the best record the team has had under Casey, this late into the campaign. "Personally, I dont give a crap," said Casey, asked what his teams recent success means to him, a coach with an expiring deal. "I mean, its not about me. Its about that team in there in that locker room. Im going to be in coaching for a long time. so its not about me, its about those guys in the locker room. For them, I think its another huge step as far as their growth is concerned and I truly mean that." "But Consistency in this league is huge. Swagger is great when you have it, but its a fleeting thing when you dont hold onto it."

GOODYEAR, Ariz. - Skip Schumaker dislocated his left shoulder and will miss about a month. Schumaker left the game between the Reds and Royals on Friday after making a diving attempt to cut off a line drive hit by Angel Franco in the left centerfield gap in the seventh inning. Schumakers glove stuck in the hard ground on the Arizona field. The injury is similar to the injury suffered on opening day last year when Ryan Ludwicks hand stuck in the ground at Great American Ball Park while sliding into thirdbase. The veteran utility player signed a two-year contract with the Reds on November 26. He is expected to provide backup at second base and the outfield. Schumaker, 34, was hitting .441 this spring with a home run and seven RBI. Micheal Haley Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. Aleksi Heponiemi Jersey .

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Top-seeded Tommy Haas retired with a shoulder injury while losing 6-3, 3-2 to Paolo Lorenzi of Italy in the Brazil Open semifinals on Saturday. Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set. He kept playing despite needing medical treatment several times, and finally gave up after going down another break in the second set. The 12th-ranked German said the pain was "getting worse during the match" and it didnt allow him to "compete the way" he wanted. "After I threw my racket when I got broken at three-all I felt a lot of pain in my shoulder and it never really got away," the 35-year-old Haas said. "The pain was getting worse. And the smart players decision has to be not to continue, unfortunately." Haas said he has been frustrated with shoulder problems and admitted it could play a factor on when to stop playing. "Ive had three shoulder injuries and one elbow injury, so my shoulder is not the youngest, not the way it needs to be," Haas said.dddddddddddd"Im very happy that I can still play at a high level, but sometimes the shoulder is very, very tired, very, very stiff, and it tells me not to continue. But Ill try to play as long as I can, hopefully for the rest of the season, then we will see." The 32-year-old Lorenzi, ranked 114th, will play in his first ATP final against 61st-ranked Federico Delbonis of Argentina, who got past home-crowd favourite Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-4 in 2 hours, 9 minutes. Lorenzi had previously never advanced past the quarterfinals. "When I started this tournament I never thought that I would be playing in the final," Lorenzi said. "Now tomorrow lets see what happens.

Lillard and Matthews each missed jumpers inside a minute and Los Angeles secured the win from the free throw line.

record with his 890th game in right field, breaking the mark by Ival
ST. LOUIS - Odell Beckham Jr. refused to be intimidated, giving as well as he received.Before the first of his two touchdown catches, the prolific rookie spun the ball and was whistled for taunting in the end zone. After outside linebacker Alec Ogletree flung him to the turf well out of bounds, Beckham stuck the ball in Ogletrees face.He has a little something, a flair to him, which obviously we like, quarterback Eli Manning said after the New York Giants stayed on a late-season surge with a 37-27 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.Looks like they didnt want to let him get away with anything like showboating.Beckham rolled up 148 yards receiving against a defence that hadnt allowed a TD in three straight games, setting two franchise rookie marks and topping 1,000 yards despite missing the first four games with a hamstring injury.The Rams (6-9) had been riled, coach Jeff Fisher said, because someone said he came out and said he was going to set an NFL record.The Ogletree tackle led to fisticuffs and three ejections, two of them coming to Beckhams aid. Before the penalties were announced, the rookie returned to the field clapping his hands.You play snap to whistle and after that you leave it alone, Beckham said. For the intensity and passion they brought to the game, I cant fault them.Defensive end Damontre Moore, one of two Giants players ejected, had been on the bench when wide receiver Preston Parker jumped Ogletree from behind.The way I was raised, you protect family, Moore said. That shows me maybe being immature and acting out on my emotions. But the way I was thinking, my brother was in danger.Reasons why the Giants won their third in a row and spoiled the Rams home finale:BIG DAYS: The Giants had a season-best 514 yards in total offence, also a season-worst allowed by the Rams. Manning was 25 for 32 for 391 yards and three touchdowns, rookie Andre Williams had 110 yards rushing on 26 carries in place of injured Rashad Jennings, and Rueben Randle had six catches for 132 yards and a score. The Giants overcame 12 penalties for 141 yards by excelling in every other phase, scoring 10 points off two first-half turnovers while committing none and dominating in time of possession. Rookie Orleans Darkwa ran for his first career TD and forced Cunninghams fumble. Manning was sacked just once by a defence that had dominated lately.Definitely, the offence was clicking from the start, Manning said. We moved the ball well all the game. Ran the ball well. Got a couple of big runs. I got the ball out quickly.LOW TIMES: The Giants had a short field, just 21 yards, on Beckhams 9-yard catch that ended the Rams run of 12 quarters without allowing a TD after Benny Cunninghams lost fumble on a kickoff return. But they also had drives of 69, 80, 87 and 80 yards against a defence that allowed just four field goals last week after consecutive shutouts against Oakland and Washington. Tavon Austin barely got his hands on a ball right to him, an interception that led to a field goal that put the Giants up 13-3 in the second quarter.RECORDS DEPT: Beckham has 79 receptions, most in NFL history for a player in his first 11 career games and five more than the previous franchise rookie mark by Jeremy Shockey in 2003. Hes had at least 90 yards receiving in eight consecutive games and could tie the NFL record set by the Cowboys Michael Irvin in 1995 in the finale against Philadelphia.

LOUIS -- Walking Billy Hamilton to start the ninth inning was a bad sign for Trevor Rosenthal. For the second straight game, the St. Louis Cardinals picked up their young closer. "Were digging our heels in," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said after Jhonny Peralta singled in the winning run in the 10th for a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. "Thats what I love about this club." Jay Bruce homered, doubled and knocked in four runs for the Reds, giving him nine RBIs in four games. Brandon Phillips returned from left thumb surgery wearing a brace and was 0 for 4 with a walk. The Reds have dropped seven of nine and are 18-30 in one-run games. Peralta had three hits, and his RBI single in the first was just his second in 32 at-bats against the Reds this season. He also doubled and scored the tying run on A.J. Pierzynskis hit off Jumbo Diaz in the eighth. "When we win like that, everybody gets excited," Peralta said. Logan Ondrusek (3-3) entered with one out in the 10th and gave up consecutive singles to Matt Holliday, Matt Adams and Peralta. Ondrusek (strained right shoulder) was activated from the disabled list earlier in the day. "I wanted to go with more of the fresh arm there, and this isnt Logans first time around the block and his first time here," manager Bryan Price said. "It just didnt happen tonight." Bruce doubled off Rosenthal to tie it in the ninth after Hamilton drew a leadoff walk, then stole his 46th base and went to third with one out. Rosenthal was pulled after walking the bases full with one out on Sunday, and Seth Maness finished for his second save. Rosenthal has allowed four runs in 2 1-3 innings in his last three outings. "It was actually not that bad, we just walked the wrong guy," Matheny said. "t;You put that guy on base, were in straight defence mode trying to figure out how to limit the damage.dddddddddddd" Maness retired Zack Cozart on a foul pop with the bases loaded to end the top of the eighth. Bruces three-run homer, his 14th shot of the season, capped a four-run fifth against Justin Masterson for a 4-3 lead. Bruce also set a franchise record with his 890th game in right field, breaking the mark by Ival Goodman from 1935-42. Pinch-hitter Daniel Descalsos RBI double off Mike Leake tied it in the seventh.

SOCHI, Russia – Since that highly-anticipated day in early January when he was officially named to the Canadian Olympic team, the nerves have not stopped pumping for John Tavares. "I think Ive had em for about a month," he said. "As much as the travels been tough, I think [youre] losing a lot of sleep just because youre so anxious and so excited." Four years ago in Vancouver, it was a then-21-year-old Jonathan Toews who emerged from the lower ranks of a powerhouse roster to steer Canada to gold. Nerves aside, could the 23-year-old Tavares prove a similar dark-horse in the Canadians bid for back-to-back golds in Sochi? Save for the incomparable Sidney Crosby, no Canadian player enters the tournament with more impressive recent credentials than the captain of the New York Islanders. Tucked just behind Crosby and eventual winner Alex Ovechkin in the 2013 Hart Trophy race, Tavares has only continued his rise up the NHL ranks this season. He is now third in league scoring after a 20-point month of January which matched Phil Kessel for the league lead. In fact, only Kessel has more points (28) in 2014 than the Toronto native (22), who is on pace for a career-high 33 goals and 91 points. "I think my mindset is just to go out there and play the best I can and contribute where Im asked in the role Im asked to play in," said Tavares, who, like Toews in Vancouver, is among the younger Canadian Olympians in Sochi. "If that leads to more opportunity, responsibility thats great, but at the end of the day, its about winning one game [Thursday] and building off that and going onto the next one and hopefully, obviously to win a gold medal." Toews was Canadas 13th forward at the outset of the Games in 2010 and though Tavares enters the tournament on a first-unit power-play – alongside Crosby and Chris Kunitz – he is stationed to start Thursdays opener against Norway on a prospective bottom forward unit with fellow Olympic rookie Jamie Benn and vet Patrice Bergeron. With dangerous offensive weaponry, experience on the big ice and versatility, Tavares looks to be a prime option to rise in the lineup if chemistry elsewhere fails to materialize. The Canadian coaching staff, led by Mike Babcock, has promised that patience in that respect will be short. "Its a competitive environment," Babcock said, "and we expect our guys to compete for their ice-time." Though he has yet to appear at the Olympics, Tavares does hold excellent credentials in past appearances on the international stage. He has amassed 16 goals in 22 world championship games, adding 15 points alone in the 2009 world juniors. During the most recent NHL lockout, he produced 17 goals and 42 points in 28 games with Bern of the Swiss league. A natural centre, it was during that stint overseas that he played mostly left wing, offering Babcock versatility with a glut of centres on the roster. He even advised Tavares of that possibility during the summer orientation camp in Calgary. "Those are all things that I can draw on, experience-wise," Tavares said of his international forays. "I think the more youve played on [the big ice], the more youve been in it, the better understanding you have." For Tavares to snatch more opportunity, hell have to make the most of limited ice. Canadian executive director Steve Yzerman said earlier this week that the greatest challenge facing his group of Olympians was not the larger Olympic ice dimensions but the difficulty of making the most of a shrunken role. "He really has to park his ego at the door," said assistant coach Ken Hitchcock, speaking generally about the roster at large. "You have to understand that when its your time and its your time to go, go! Dont sit there and wonder what the coach is thinking, dont sit there and think am I going to get on the ice?, whats my family thinking?, when its your turn to go, go. "Whatever youve got, give us quality and forget about the quantity. Youve got to park the quality right up front and youve got to forget about the quantity because its not going to be the same. No player is going to play the minutes that he plays in the NHL. It isnt even going to be close. Youve got to park it." Toews averaged fewer than 15 minutes in Vancouver and yet finished as the tournaments top forward and Canadas leading scorer. He also helped shut down Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin in a dominant quarterfinal win over Russia. "Theres no time to look around and be wide-eyed," Toews advised of his mindset in 2010. "Youve got to go out there and play and just let it happen. Thats what the Olympics is all about. Theres not much time to adjust." A potent weapon, both as a sniper and playmaker – he is nearing a career-high in assists – Tavares can also be of aid to the Canada power play. The first overall pick from the 2009 draft is tied for fourth in power play points this season, trailing only Crosby, Ovechkin and the league-leader, Nicklas Backstrom. "You understand the responsibility of coming here and having to accept your role," Tavares said. "So youll be ready whenever your names called to go over [the boards] and execute." Josh Sitton Dolphins Jersey . Bobrovsky posted a 2-0-1 record with a 1.58 goals-against average and .950 save percentage to help the Blue Jackets (35-26-6) gain five of a possible six points last week. He capped the week by making 32 saves and stopping 2-of-4 shootout attempts in a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. Daniel Kilgore Dolphins Jersey .

Danny Amendola Dolphins Jersey .J. -- Pete Carroll said it was the suspension of linebacker Bruce Irvin last spring that finally got the attention of the rest of the Seattle Seahawks that they needed to be taking their commitment to the team more seriously. Robert Quinn Jersey .J. -- All those records, all for naught.TORONTO -- In the span of a minute Friday, Terrence Ross scored on an alley-oop, a three-pointer and a massive running dunk, taking off from near the top of the key. The 22-year-old started his second game in place of the departed Rudy Gay, and made the most of it, scoring 24 points -- including a key three in the dying minutes -- to lift the revamped Toronto Raptors to a 108-100 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. "The main thing is staying focused so I can play at this level, Im really trying to just know my job, know my role and just make sure we have the chemistry going and keep winning," Ross said afterward. DeMar DeRozan poured in a game-high 27 points for Toronto (8-13) on what was a good night to be a Raptors swingman. "Talk about bouncy athletes," said Sixers coach Brett Brown. "You go with Ross and DeRozan, you take the athleticism plus they can come off screens and shoot like they do. Theyre hard guards, theyre really difficult people to defend. Those two guys had fantastic games throughout." Amir Johnson had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Jonas Valanciunas finished with 12 points to go with 13 boards, and Kyle Lowry doled out a season-high 11 assists and added six points. Tony Wroten topped the Sixers (7-17) with 23 points. Evan Turner had 21 points, while Thaddeus Young finished with 18. The game marked the first action for Raptors newcomers Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson and John Salmons since they were acquired in Mondays trade that sent Gay, plus Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy to Sacramento. Vasquez scored 12 points, while Patterson had five points and five boards and showed flashes of nice interior defence. "Theyre learning the system, learning to play with each other," said Raptors coach Dwane Casey. "Learning where guys want the ball is huge. I thought they were a little tight playing tonight for the first time which is understandable, but I like what I saw. I think theyre going to mix in quite well." The Raptors almost coughed up an early 15-point lead several times during the game against their Atlantic Division rivals, but took an 83-76 lead into the fourth quarter in front of a crowd of 17,133 at Air Canada Centre. Johnson and Vasquez drained consecutive three-pointers to put Toronto up by 14 with just over seven minutes to go and the Raptors looked poised for an easy victory. But the Sixers battled back and a three by Turner with 2:10 to go pulled them within 100-96. A couple of nice passes on the Raptors next possession found Ross open in the corner, and he drained a three to give Toronto some breathing room, the basket pulling him to within two points of his career high. "That stopped the flow a little bit," Casey said. "His big three in the corner was huge.&quoot; Casey said the challenge for Ross is to maintain a high level of play -- easier said than done for a young player.dddddddddddd. "Hes got to stay hungry, stay driven, stay consistent," the coach said. "Hes a talented young man but hes fighting consistency." DeRozan is doing his part to help Ross. "Youve seen it, Terrence definitely works hard," DeRozan said. "Every time we practise against each other in practice, I always go at him just to try to give him a lesson, give him the extra confidence when hes out there on the court." Lowry, meanwhile, played amid rumours he wasnt long for Toronto, with the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets believed to be the frontrunners to acquire the Raptors starting point guard. Lowry spoke candidly about the rumours after Friday mornings shootaround. "You see it every day, you see it whenever they update it and everyone talks about it," Lowry told reporters. "We joke about it a little bit, we make it more of a lighter type thing, dont make it a heavy hearted thing, make it a joke. "Hey, man, you still here? Make it a little bit lighter on the players in that situation." Lowry, whos in the final year of a contract that will pay him about US$6.2 million this year, admitted the speculation weighed on him. "Nobody can say it doesnt but at the same time, you have to know that this is a business, you have to know the situation that youre in, the situation that youre going to be in," he said. "You cant let it affect you too much because you still have to go out there and do a job and try to win for the team that youre playing for." Starting in place of the departed Gay, Ross scored 12 first-quarter points including a three that put the Raptors up by 11 less than three minutes into the game. Toronto closed out the quarter up 36-21. The three new Raptors started the second and the chemistry clearly wasnt there, as the Sixers opened the quarter with a 10-0 run. A pair of Wroten free throws pulled the visitors even with three-and-a-half minutes left in the half. The Raptors made just six field goals in the quarter, but held on to lead 56-48 at halftime. The Sixers chipped away at Torontos lead and pulled to within 76-74 with 1:35 to go. But Lowry grabbed a rebound and found a sprinting DeRozan with a court-long pass for a layup. The play seemed to inject some life into a sagging home team. On the Raptors final possession, Lowry grabbed his own rebound for a nice tip shot at the buzzer that gave Toronto an 83-76 lead heading into the fourth. NOTES: Chuck Hayes, also acquired from Sacramento in the trade, didnt dress as he was required to undergo baseline cardiac testing. . .The Raptors are in Chicago to face the Bulls on Saturday, then return home to host the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday.

Jordan Matthews Jersey .J. -- Kyle Palmieri thrilled his personal rooting section with an overtime winner that sent the Anaheim Ducks to their seventh straight win.TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Most of Elliott Sadlers memories of Talladega Superspeedway are unpleasant. They either involve a horrific 2003 crash in which his car flipped several times and slid forever through the grass on its roof, or many different ways hed come up empty racing for a win. Finally, he has a victory that tops all those other disappointments. "I have such a love-hate relationship with this race track. We always run good here, but I always doggone flip or wreck or hit hard or something," Sadler said in Victory Lane. "Every autograph session, everywhere I go, everybody always reminds me of the flip I had down the backstraighaway here. Now maybe they can ask me about winning here." Sadler won a three-lap shootout to the checkered flag in the Nationwide Series race. The race Saturday was stopped for a little more than nine minutes to clean the track following a six-car accident that began when Jeremy Clement was turning into an outside wall and his car shot back into traffic. Sadler reflected on many of his previous races during the stoppage. "Under the red flag, I was playing all these scenarios in my head," Sadler said. "Really, how many races Ive lost in the last couple laps not making the right decisions." There were three laps remaining on the restart, and Sadler had to throw several blocks to hold off a charge from the pack of traffic behind him. It was the 10th Nationwide Series victory of Sadlers career, first at Talladega, and first win since 2012. "We just stayed to the bottom and stuck to our guns," Sadler said of his strategy. "We made the right blocks at the right time." "I was disappointed last year we werent able to do it. It means a lot to me to get the JGR team to Victory Lane -- they wwork their butts off and we werent able to reward them.dddddddddddd" After going winless last season, his first with Joe Gibbs Racing, finally grabbing a victory was a heavy relief for Sadler. He left Richard Childress Racing to join JGR in an attempt to race for the Nationwide title. Instead, after winning four races in 2012 and finishing second that year in the standings, Sadler had just nine top-10 finishes and was a distant fourth in the title race. "When you come to a new place and you are running for such a respectable man and owner, and you are not able to give back to them, and not go to Victory Lane and not able to run for the championship as strong as you want to, man, it weighed on me heavy," Sadler said. "To be able to go to Victory Lane, and (Gibbs) call me on the phone, was amazing to me. That was a feeling that is really hard to put into words, but it feels good." Chris Buescher finished second and Regan Smith, winner of last years race, was third. Sadlers win ended a three-race winning streak for JR Motorsports, which picked up victories from Chase Elliott at Texas and Darlington and Kevin Harvick last week at Richmond. "We couldnt keep the JR Motorsports winning streak alive, but theres a lot of races left," Smith said. Elliott, who finished 19th, maintained his lead as the Nationwide points leader. But Sadlers victory pulled him to just one point behind Elliott. David Ragan finished fourth and was followed by Sam Hornish Jr., making his first race since losing the Nationwide title by three points last season. Hornish has a seven-race deal with JGR and made his debut by winning the pole in Friday qualifying. Joe Nemechek was sixth and followed by J.J. Yeley, Landon Cassill, David Starr and Trevor Bayne.

Villanova, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Villanova quarterback John Robertson says the Wildcats thrive on playing from behind. They faced their biggest deficit of the season in the FCS playoffs Saturday, but rallied to beat Liberty, 29-22, behind Robertsons TD pass and run in the fourth quarter of their second-round matchup. The sixth-seeded Wildcats (11-2) will host Sam Houston State (10-4) in the national quarterfinals next weekend. Sam Houston went on the road to upset third-seeded Jacksonville State on Saturday. Villanova faced a 13-0 deficit in the second quarter and was behind the Big South Conference co-champion 22-14 entering the fourth quarter. But Robertson connected on a 70-yard bomb to Kevin Gulyas to pull Villanova within 22-20 with 13:17 left to play. Robertson then ran in the two-point conversion to tie the game. After Villanova stopped Liberty (9-5) on a three-and-out Robertson took the Wildcats on an 18-play, 84-yard march and ran in the winning touchdown from 1 yard out with 1:12 remaining. Robertson also scored from 3 yards out in the second quarter and finished with 100 yards on 18 carries. He added 217 passing yards for the second-place team in CAA Football. Kevin Monangai carried the ball 20 times for 102 yards. Villanova had a 447-246 advantage in yards. Liberty quarterback Josh Woodrum scored on a 1-yard run and Nick Newman had a 58-yard fumble return for a touchdown.

Now, he has four in less than a week.Manning and Sanders connected for a trio of touchdowns Thursday night in the Denver Broncos 35-21 victory over the San Diego Chargers.We understand in this offence, it can be anyones night at any moment, said Sanders, who didnt catch his first TD pass for Denver until Sunday night, when Manning set the career record. Im just happy tonight was my night.Sanders caught all nine passes Manning threw his way and gained 120 yards Thursday night.He needs just 106 more yards to top his best season he ever had in four years in Pittsburgh. Thats all in a nights work for Sanders, who has four career 100-yard receiving games, all this season.Im enjoying playing with him, Manning said. Hes got a great work ethic. He really loves football and he brings that energy to practice every day and also to the playing field. ... He was pretty special tonight.With the Chargers banged-up secondary double-teaming red-hot receiver Demaryius Thomas, Sanders caught TD throws of 2, 31 and 3 yards. The last one followed Chris Harris Jr.s interception of a flustered Philip Rivers.Rookie running back Juwan Thompson added two TD runs as the Broncos (6-1) tightened their grip on the AFC West over the Chargers (5-3), who lost their second straight game.Its an accomplishment for the room, said Ronnie Hillman, who carried 20 times for 109 yards. Its a touchdown for the room. Hes taking them, but thats all right. He earns them. Thats a tough 2 yards to get. Im just playing my role getting him down there.Manning finished 25 of 35 for 286 yards with three TDs and no interceptions or sacks five nights after breaking Brett Favres career touchdown mark.Sanders speed, combined with Hillmans second gear, is the juice GM John Elway had in mind when he said the Broncos could be better this year than they were last season.John Elway and his staff went out and wanted to increase our team speed in all phases of the game and I think weve done that, coach John Fox said.Sanders called Denver wide receivers heaven when he joined the Broncos in the spring. He spent his first five games in a Broncos uniform piling up the yards — 473 of them — but wistfully wishing to become the 45th player to catch a touchdown pass from Manning.The only blemish in Sanders breakout night was his fumble in the fourth quarter that Wes Welker recovered.His teammates teased him that hell be carrying around the football wwith the green beanie as punishment next week.ddddddddddddBut its not big deal, Sanders said. Its only going to make me better.Each time Thompson scored, Rivers and the Chargers responded with 80-yard drives that ended with touchdown catches by tight end Antonio Gates. His first score was a 4-yard grab on fourth down, his second a 10-yard catch with 9 1/2 minutes left that made it 35-21.Rivers finished 30 of 41 for 252 yards with three TDs and two interceptions.Brandon McManus missed a 53-yard field goal with six minutes remaining, giving the Chargers great field position, but safety Rahim Moore intercepted Rivers pass to Malcolm Floyd at the Denver 4 and the Broncos grounded it out from there.With Sanders having a big day, Demaryius Thomas quietly topped 100 yards himself for the fourth straight week, finishing with 105 yards on eight catches, a team record.Manning broke another of Favres records on this night, albeit a much more obscure one: he now has 16 seasons with 20 or more touchdown passes, one more than Favre. And hes approaching another of Favres marks: with his 157th career multiple TD game, Manning is two shy of Favres mark in that category.After losing at home to the Chargers on a Thursday night in December — Denvers only home loss last season — the Broncos changed their work week. They practiced without pads and helmets.But their first two drives led to punts as defensive co-ordinator John Pagano again found ways to thwart Manning even with a banged-up secondary that was missing cornerbacks Brandon Flowers (concussion) and Steve Williams (groin).Then, Sanders starting finding the end zone.Theyre better than us right now, San Diego safety Eric Weddle said. Thats the reality of it. Its a long season. When we meet them again, however many more times, well be better.Even Manning found something he didnt like on his and Sanders big night.He didnt like it when the scoreboard operator fired up the crowd when the Broncos were trying to chew up the clock.Im not sure what hes doing, hes playing music and showing players dancing and getting the crowd fired up when we have the ball, Manning complained. I dont think we should be doing that. I dont think we should be showing their quarterback on the sideline. I thought that was disrespectful.Our fans are great. Our fans our loud. Our scoreboard operator, it wasnt his best night.Notes: Gates became the Chargers career leader in yards receiving with 9,610, breaking the mark set by Hall of Fame WR Lance Alworth (9,584). ... Broncos LB Lamin Barrow sustained a concussion.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Gear Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Stitched Jerseys Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China ' ' '

Manchester United (LW -3) Wayne Rooney was spared an early red card and then went on to be Uniteds best player in a 2-2 draw at Cardiff. After being shown yellow for kicking Jordon Mutch, Rooney opened the scoring in the 15th minute and delivered the corner that Patrice Evra headed home for the second goal. 6. Southampton (LW - 4) Artur Boruc tried to play the ball out from his goal but instead handed Arsenal a gift opener in a 2-0 defeat for Southampton. Jose Fonte was called for pulling Per Mertesackers shirt in the box giving Arsenal their second goal and the victory. 7. Everton (LW - 8) The Merseyside derby was a very lively affair as Everton and Liverpool drew 3-3 after the teams traded goals in the final ten minutes of the game. Romelu Lukaku scored twice, including an 82nd minute marker that looked like it might stand up for the victory, before Daniel Sturridge fired home in the 89th minute to share the points. 8. Newcastle United (LW - 9) Loic Remy scored in the second minute and Yoan Gouffran doubled the advantage before the break as Newcastle beat Norwich City 2-1. Keeper Tim Krul was called upon to make saves while his team led by one goal and he was able to keep them in the lead.. 9. Tottenham (LW - 6) Behind after only 13 second, Spurs was never able to recover as they fell 6-0 to Manchester City. Tottenham has only managed one point in their last three games as they have slipped down to ninth in the table. Keeper Hugo Lloris had two bad clearances that led to the first to City goals and sent the home side on their way to a huge victory. 10. Swansea City (LW - 13) Jonjo Shelvey scored ten minutes before the end of the game to give Swansea a 2-1 victory over Fulham. The Swans dominated the play and were deserved winners after they gave up an equalizing marker in the 64th minute. It was their first win since mid-October. 11. West Bromwich Albion (LW - 10) Two first half goal looked like they would be enough but all the Baggies were able to get out of the game was a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa. Shane Long was the man on target with both goals in the opening 11 minutes of the contest to give his team the early advantage. 12. Aston Villa (LW - 11) After giving up goals in the 3rd and 11th minute, Villa fought back with two second half markers to earn a 2-2 draw with West Brom. Karim El Ahmadi and Ashley Westwood fired home the goals for Aston Villa who in the end deserved a point from the contest. 13. Cardiff City (LW -14) Kim Bo-Kyungs stoppage time header rescued a point for Cardiff City as they earned a 2-2 draw with Manchester United. Fraizer Campbell scored the other goal and also missed a great chance when he hit the crossbar. Cardiff never led in the game but did deserve a point for their effort. 14. Hull City (LW - 12) The Tigers dominated the action but were not able to find a goal as they fell 1-0 at the hands of Crystal Palace. A 78th minute red card to Palace looked like the break Hull needed but in fact they would concede the winning goal three minutes later. Jake Livermore had a late chance but was not able to pull his team level. 15. Stoke City (LW - 16) Charlie Adam and Steven Nzonzi scored on either side of half and either side of an opponents red card as they defeated Sunderland 2-0 to earn an important three points. Wes Brown was controversially sent off for Sunderland after a tackle on Adam that looked to have minimal contact. Stoke eventually were able to put the game away in the 81st minute. 16. Norwich City (LW - 15) Two first half goals doomed Norwich to defeat as they fell 2-1 at the hands of Newcastle. Leroy Fer scored the goal, while both Anthony Pilkington and Ryan Bennett had chances to put their side back into the game. 17. West Ham (LW- 17) The Hammers failed to score for the seventh time in the league this season as they slumped to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea. Keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen conceded a penalty to the visitors when he took down Oscar in the box. They started the game well but were not able to recover after the penalty led to the opening goal. 18. Fulham (LW - 19) Martin Jol remains under fire as two second half goals saw Fulham fall 2-1 at the hands of Swansea. Scott Parker equalized for the Cottagers after they had fallen behind due to an own goal but it was not enough after they gave up the winner in the 80th minute. 19. Crystal Palace (LW - 20) Down to 10 men, Barry Bannan scored in the 81st minute to give Palace a 1-0 victory over Hull City. New manager Tony Pulis was in the stands to see his side overcome the disadvantage caused when Yannick Bolasie was sent off for a foul on Jake Livermore. 20. Sunderland (LW - 18) Wes Browns 36th minute red card ended any hope of a Sunderland comeback as they lost 2-0 to Stoke. The sending off was controversial as it appeared there was very little contact between Brown and Charlie Adam, the player he committed the foul on. Sunderland did have chances but were not able to find a marker. Marquis Haynes Jersey . This time, it was Eric Chavezs turn.

CHICAGO - Henry Sims can see the growth and hes not referring to the stack of losses. The Philadelphia 76ers skid continued and so did their march toward the wrong kind of record. They have dropped 24 straight after losing 91-81 to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. But Sims can at least see some positives. "Were learning to play better with each other," he said. "Were learning to make better decisions down the stretch. Were growing right now, and thats the main focus right now. The games we have left, we want to keep growing." They wouldnt mind stopping the losing streak, either, but the Bulls werent about to let that happen. Joakim Noah finished with 20 points, Jimmy Butler scored 17, and Chicago handed the 76ers yet another loss to put them within two of the NBA record. The Sixers moved ahead of the Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) for the second-longest, single-season losing streak. The Cleveland Cavaliers dropped 26 during the 2010-11 season, and Philadelphia would have to pull off an upset to avoid tying that. The next two games are at San Antonio and Houston. Drop them, and the Sixers could set the record at home against Detroit on March 29, particularly if they continue to shoot like this from the outside. They missed their first 18 3-pointers and were threatening a league record before Byron Mullens made one early in the fourth. They wound up going 1 for 20. The mark for most 3-point attempts in a game without a conversion is 15. "We were 1 for 20 — what do you say?" coach Brett Brown asked. "Its going to be hard. I thought our defence was really quite good. Its always going to be hard if you cant make perimeter shots. This group has struggled doing that, and so, finding wins and finding ways to stay in games is always going to be a challenge." Despite that, they hung in until Taj Gibson buried a jumper and D.J. Augustin nailed a 3 with 2:30 remaining. That made it 91-79 and sealed the win for the Bulls, who moved into a tie for third in the Eastern Conference with Toronto. Noah and Butler each had eight rebounds, with Butler dishing out six assists. Gibson came on strong in the fourth quarter to finish with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Augustin added 16 points and six assists, and the Bulls came away with the win after losing at Indiana the previous night. "Its tough," he said. "(The 76ers) come out and they have nothing to lose. Basically, they just come out shooting whenever they feel and some of those shots go in. Its hard for anybody to play against a team thats losing, but theyre still a good team at the same time." Thaddeus Young scored 28 for Philadelphia despite missing seven 3-pointers. Sims added 18 points and 15 rebounds, but the Sixers remained winless since Jan. 29. It didnt help that they were missing Tony Wroten, one of their few bright spots in this lost season. He sprained his right ankle in Fridays one-point loss at home to the New York Knicks and did not travel with the team. "Theres a win in this group," Brown said. "We will continue to fight and continue to stay together. Im just thrilled, Im proud of their ability, their character, to stay together in whats clearly difficult times." Notes: Brown said Wroten will miss all three games on the trip. ... Brown had high praise for Noah before the game, saying he hopes Nerlens Noel develops like him. "Every time I see Joakim, I hope I see what were going to get in Nerlens," Brown said. "Hes one of the prime examples I point to as we try and groom a young player." Noel was taken with the sixth pick in the draft last spring despite a torn ACL in his left knee. He has not played this season. ... Houston (at Orlando, March 30, 1991), Golden State (against Indiana, Dec. 6, 1996) and Milwaukee (against Phoenix, Jan. 22, 2002) share the record for 3s attempted without a conversion in a game. Custom New York Giants Jerseys . The Oilers jumped into the free agent market early by signing defencemen Keith Aulie (six-foot-six, 228 pounds) and Mark Fayne (6-3, 210 pounds) and left-winger Benoit Pouliot (6-3, 197-pounds).

ST. LOUIS - Walking off the field, his back to the huddle, Austin Davis had no idea the St. Louis Rams would gamble in this spot. Not backed up at their 18.The quarterback glanced back in surprise to see Johnny Hekker, arm cocked, about to let one go.It certainly surprised the Seattle Seahawks, even though theyve seen it before.Thats pretty sweet, Hekker said of the pass to a wide-open Benny Cunningham that helped the Rams run out the clock and beat the defending Super Bowl champions 28-26 on Sunday. Weve been practicing that play for a long time.Hekker is a former high school quarterback and is the holder on place kicks. His TD pass on a fake field goal to Danny Amendola, whod pretended to jog off the field, was the go-ahead score and the lone touchdown for the Rams in a 19-13 win over Seattle in September 2012.The Seahawks were familiar with the fake punt/pass but didnt expect trickery in that situation. They got fooled more than once.Stedman Bailey had a 90-yard touchdown on a trick return that had the Seahawks thinking another player was going to field the punt. Cunningham had a 75-yard kickoff return on a squibbed kick that had rolled into the end zone and perhaps put the Seahawks on their heels. It set up an early touchdown for the Rams (2-4).The Rams won for just the third time in 19 games against Seattle. They scored more than 20 points against Seattle for the first time in 15 meetings since 2006.It was great execution by them on a couple different scenarios, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. It made a huge difference in this game.If they dont catch that ball, its ours and we kick the field goal and its over. A very gutsy play.Russell Wilson rushed for 106 yards on seven carries and also passed for two touchdowns while going 23 for 36 for 313 yards, becoming the first quarterback in NFL history with 300 yards passing and 100 yards rushing.But the struggling Seahawks fell to 3-3 with a second straight loss.The Seahawks dominated statistically, outgaining the Rams 463 yards to 272. Doug Baldwins 9-yard reception cut the deficit to two with 3:18 to go, but the Rams were able to run out the clock after Hekkers completion to Cunningham on fourth-and-3, and somehow recovered a fumble by Tre Mason in the final minute.NFL spokesman Michael Signora said the play was reviewed by the league and that there was no evidence of a clear recovery by either St. Louis or Seattle.Cory Harkey was credited with a fumble recovery, and the Rams finished it with a kneel-down. The Seahawks Richard Sherman had the ball after it popped out of Harkeys grasp, but Harkey apparently grabbed it back in the scrum.I stripped the ball and it was a big scuffle and I was just trying to help Sherm get the ball, safety Earl Thomas said. He had it but somehow ... I dont know.Hekker was a high school quarterback and is 4 for 5 for 60 yards and a touchdown in three seasons. He also serves as the emergency quarterback.I dont know how many completions I had, but it wasnt even close to the most important one of the game, Davis said. Sometimes youve got to go get one.Wilson was sacked three times by St. Louis, which trailed the NFL with just one in the first five games. Robert Quinns got his first of the season; Quinn led the NFC with a franchise-record 19 sacks last year.The Rams led by at least two touchdowns at home for the third straight game and Baileys punt return made it 21-3 in the second quarter. They couldnt hold on the first two times, coughing up a 14-0 advantage last Monday night against the 49ers, and a 21-point cushion against Dallas in Week 3.On his tricky TD, Bailey had clear sailing past a stunned Seahawks sideline after an excellent fake by Tavon Austin drew most defenders to the opposite side of the field. Austin sold it well, staggering under the imaginary ball.NOTES: Seattle FB Derrick Coleman broke a foot in pregame workouts and CB Tharold Simon (ankle) was sidelined in the second quarter. ... The teams combined for an average of just 30.4 points the previous eight meetings. ...

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - A third-quarter onslaught Wednesday night mightve helped the Atlanta Hawks silence some doubters. Shelvin Mack hit six 3-pointers and netted 24 points off the bench as the Hawks routed the Cavaliers 127-98, avenging an ugly loss to Cleveland just over a month ago. A huge second-quarter run lifted the Hawks to a five-point halftime advantage, but they took the game over in the third after shooting 61.9 percent (13- of-21) and assisting on eight of their 13 made field goals. Atlanta outscored Cleveland 30-15 in the frame and cruised to the easy triumph in the fourth, leading by as many as 31. The Hawks, who posted 36 assists, have tallied 20-or-more helpers in all but two games and had assisted on an NBA-best 67.4 percent of shots made coming into the matchup. Cleveland blew out Atlanta 127-94 on Nov. 15. Al Horford supplied 20 points, while Paul Millsap added 14 points, eight rebounds and four assists for the Hawks, who have won 11 of their last 12 games. You go up and down the roster, different guys contributing at different times. Thats what were trying to build, is a team, Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. Atlanta moved to 18-7 on the season, its best start since 2009-10. LeBron James had 21 points, Dion Waiters poured in 21 points off the pine and Kevin Love provided 13 points, 10 boards and six helpers for Cleveland, which has dropped three of its last four contests on the heels of an eight- game winning streak. I really dont have too much to say, Cavs coach David Blatt said. That was embarrassing how we played. Atlanta led 73-68 with 8:56 left in the third prior to an 18-5 burst to pull away for good. Horford had six points during the surge, which was capped on a Mack triple for a commanding 91-73 margin late in the third. The Hawks took a 95-75 advantage into the fourth. Earlier, after jumping out to a 41-25 lead after one in its meeting with Atlanta a month ago, Cleveland was up 34-26 following a quarter of play in this one. Matthew Dellavedova nailed one from beyond the arc in the waning seconds of the period. Mack caught fire in the second, hitting five threes and scoring 17 points in the frame. After a Dellavedova trey staked the Cavs to a 50-38 spread midway through the stanza, Mack knocked down a trio of triples during a 17-2 Atlanta swing. The Hawks hit five threes in all during the flurry, which was finished off on a Mack long distance shot for a 55-52 Atlanta lead. The Hawks led 65-60 at the half. Game Notes Atlanta outscored Cleveland 101-64 over the final three quarters ... Dennis Schroder made his first career start in place of Jeff Teague, who has a strained left hamstring ...

Flames president and CEO Ken King explained some of the reasons for the decision in a statement. "The economics did not turn out the way any of us intended, despite the tremendous efforts of many men and women who made it their mission to convert the allegiances of local hockey fans, at least at the American Hockey League level, to the Heat," explained King. "NNotwithstanding economics our experiences in the Fraser Valley have been good.dddddddddddd We have made good friends, have wonderful local partners and believe that our players have been served well in this market. Unfortunately the time has come for us to move on." The Heat have already clinched a playoff spot this season and will make a postseason appearance for the third time in their five seasons in Abbotsford. They have made it to the second round twice. Abbotsford is the western-most franchise in the AHL and is the only team playing in the Pacific time zone. The Flames did not announce a new location for the team but said that several opportunities exist for the organization.

DALLAS -- Talk about a quick 1-2-3 for the Dallas Stars. Cody Eakin, Stephane Robidas and Ryan Garbutt produced a three-goal flurry in a 53-second span of the third period, and the Stars beat the Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks 6-3 on Tuesday night for their first home win in more than month. "We were just still talking on the bench about, OK, its a tie game. Lets get this thing (under control), stay the course, do that, and next its 3-2," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It just went boom, boom. They got the goal, and the crowd got into it, and then the rest is history." After giving up a goal to Nick Bonino in the final seconds of the second period that put the Ducks ahead 2-1, Dallas wiped out that deficit with the fastest three-goal stretch in the NHL since January 2012. "Youre thinking that we fought hard to tie it up and want to go into the third period and try to play a 20-minute period of the win, and now were going to chase the game again as soon as we come out," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "But we were able to turn it, I can tell you a nice story now. Otherwise, we might have blamed the game on that late goal." Eakins sixth goal of the season tied it 2-2 with 14:35 left. Only 25 seconds later, Robidas was between the circles when he scored his fourth of the season. Garbutt then gathered a loose puck and scored with a backhanded swipe with 13:42 left to make it 4-2. He didnt realize how quickly the trio of goals had come. "But it was pretty cool," said Garbutt, who also had two assists. Fans in the building were suddenly in a frenzy as Boudreau finally called timeout. "We might have had to have a little bottle of NoDoz after the first period, but we woke them up in the third," Ruff said. Roussel was in the crease when he netted his second goal with just under 8 minutes left. Hiller quickly argued with the referee to no avail, trying to get an interference call. Dan Ellis stopped 28 shots, winning for only the second time in seven games. Dallas had been 0-2-2 at home since a 5-1 victory over Calgary on Oct. 24. Emerson Etem, Nick Bonino and Dustin Penner scored for the Ducks, who are 10-4-3 in their last 17 games. Penners tally was a power-play goal with 6 1/2 minutes left. "It does happen quickly," Ducks centre Andrew Cogliano said. "When momentum turns and it starts going the other way, its really hard to stop it." The Stars played the first of three straight home games. Next is Friday night against the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks, who have an NHL-best 38 points -- one more than Anaheim and St. Louis. This was the second of three meetings this season for the former Pacific Division rivals who used to play six times a season. It was the only trip to Dallas for the Ducks, who won 6-3 at home on Oct. 20 and will host the Stars again on Feb. 1. Hiller, who faced 32 shots, gave up three goals on 12 shots against the Stars in the previous matchup before he was pulled from the game. Boninos seventh of the season came with 36 seconds left in the second period. He took a pass from Cogliano, and the puck went off his skate before he used his stick to score from the right side of the net for a 2-1 lead. Etem scored from in front 6:06 into the game to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead. Roussel tied it when the puck caromed in off his skate with 6:47 left in the second period. Officials reviewed the goal before ruling that it wasnt kicked into the net to the left of Hiller after a pass from Vernon Fiddler. "That was a team win," Roussel said.

DeMario Davis Saints Jersey . Lack replaced an injured Roberto Luongo late in the first period then watched defenceman Chris Tanev score the winning goal midway through the third as the Vancouver Canucks defeated the Jets 2-1 in a tight NHL game.There are likely two safe bets when it comes to the 2014 CFL Draft; offensive linemen will dominate the early selections, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will look to solidify one of their most glaring positional needs with the second-overall pick. According to the CFL Scouting Bureaus January rankings, four of the top five Canadian prospects line-up on the offensive side of the trenches, which is good news for Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. With only one selection in the first two rounds — Walters sent his second-round pick to Saskatchewan in the days ahead of the 2013 trade deadline — the No. 2 pick is an opportunity to grab one of three top O-line prospects who are expected to play professionally in Canada. The No. 1-rated athlete overall, offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif out of McGill, is not attending this weekends CFL Combine in Toronto, opting instead to hold his own pro day in Montreal for both NFL and Canadian scouts. This leaves Laval University centre Pierre Lavertu as a very likely target for either the expansion Ottawa Redblacks who select first overall, or for the Blue Bombers. Lavertu would be an attractive choice for Winnipeg with the free agent departure of starting centre Justin Sorensen this past winter. "(I am a) centre, so it will help then if Im going to be a centre at the next level," said the 6-foot-3 300-pound All-Canadian. "But if I have to play guard or something like that, Im going to do it." Lavertu is both confident and aware of the two teams who may call his name on May 13. "I figure that will happen. Its going to be cool if Im drafted by one of those teams. I watch a lot of the websites of Winnipeg and Ottawa just to learn more about these teams." The offensive lineman that may have the most to prove during Combine weekend is 6-foot-4 294-pound Matthias Goossen out of the non-CIS school Simon Fraser. "I want to make sure that whatever I do here solidifies what Ive done in the season, and it can help show more athleticism — how I compare to guys in the CIS game, because obviously all these guys here I havent played against at all. So it would great to compare myself to these guys and sort of show myself and prove my worth, and obviously continue to make myself look better for the scouts." Goossen made a huge leap in the Bureaus rankinggs in just four months, moving from No.dddddddddddd 15 up to No. 5 once more scouts and CFL team reps could see what he was capable of. The Combine is an opportunity for him to cement those assessments. "I think the biggest thing, like everybody knows, is the one-on-ones and showing how to compete and showing how I actually play because when it comes down to it, theres no bench press on the field." Goossen played every position on the offensive line over the past four years at SFU, but feels his body-type is an ideal fit for the centre position at the pro level. A third potential option for the Blue Bombers, if they desire an O-lineman with their first pick may not fill their vacant centre spot, but he is quite hard to ignore. David Foucault stands 6-foot-8 and weighs in at 320 pounds. "I played tackle last year, but two years ago I played guard. I can play on both sides — guard and tackle — left and right… If a coach asks me what do you prefer? I prefer tackle. But I just want to play football. If you put me at guard, I will play guard. I just want to play professional football, and thats why Im here." While the CFL Combine measures many things, the versatile 24-year-old out of Montreal University feels language may be the most critical area for him to work on. "Thats why I went to Florida for training because all the stuff (at the Combine) is in English. When I came to Florida my first week, I was very bad in my English. I need to practice every day… If a scout or a coach wants to do an interview in French I will say no, I need to practice my English." Another concern for the No. 3-ranked prospect could be his physicality, as Foucault may stand prominent, but he has been known to play smaller than his stature and lack finish when engaging defenders. "(Im looking most forward to) the one-on-ones because in the combine in Tampa (Florida) I did all the tests and some drills. Some mirror drills and O-line drills. But maybe the one-on-ones I need to do well in that (this weekend). For all my tests I need to be consistent or do better." *N.B. Winnipeg traded their 2014 second-round selection along with import defensive end Alex Hall to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in exchange for non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld and a 2015 fourth-round selection.

TSNs Three Man Weave close out the first month of 2015, diagnosing if the Raptors have cured their January blues, explore All-Star robbery and snobbery and the return to glory of the Slam Dunk Contest. Hosts of TSN 1050s 1 On 1 with Will & Duane, Will Strickland and Duane Watson receive some crisp passes from Ray Bala, author and authority of The CanBall Report, as they also question if Jason Kidd has already run away with Coach of The Year honours. Are the Raptors finally over their January blues? Strickland: All signs point to that being the case. But even on the tails of a five-game losing strike, there are whispers and fears about the elite-level readiness of this squad. These perceived issues can either be an odd discomfort or a cause for real concern. Winning aside, the play has been loose and sloppy vs. relatively underwhelming competition. Yet and still, the Raptors possess the franchises best record ever in its 20-year existence before the All-Star break at 32-15, 17 games above .500. Odd discomfort, indeed... Bala: Maybe, but it will probably be the February blahs if they play like they did this month. With the exception of Brooklyn and New York, every other club on the schedule is currently playoff bound and though New Orleans is not, their record ties them for sixth in the East. The Raps need to have a short memory and play like its November. Watson: Yes, particularly when its more important on how you finish than how you start. A five-game win streak to close out the month with some attention to defence and, more importantly, a DeMar DeRozan who has found his rhythm are a cure all. Coach Caseys next challenge is to get them to ride this momentum into All-Star break. Damian Lillard was robbed as a reserve on the Western Conference All-Star team, whose place should he have on the roster? Strickland: Ouch! Robbed? Despite getting ethered by 2014 All-Star Game MVP and 2015 East All-Star reserve Kyrie Irving for 55 big ones recently, Lillard got all up in his feelings and let us know how he felt about the selection slight. He deserves to be on the team, but the criteria for selection after the fans popularity vote seems to shift with the wind. If combinations of personal numbers plus team record are the standard measures, Big Game Dame seems to fit the bill, averaging 21.6 PPG and 6.3 APG on a fourth-place team at 32-15 in the West. If anyone should be mad, though, it is the perennially underrated Michael Alex Conley, Jr. of Memphis Grizzlies. Bala: People will probably call this blasphemy, but Kevin Durant. I know that hes the reigning MVP, superstar and that the Thunder were 9-17 without him but hes missed half of the teams games. The All-Star player criteria should be treated like baseball stats - minimum amount of games to qualify - and that should apply here. Of course, we could keep KD on the roster and replace Carmelo Anthony with Lillard since the Knicks are just horrible. Watson: While we talk of Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade receiving legacy votes, Chris Paul is still collecting them every year. Paul is on the downside, while Lillard is on the upside, even though their team records are similar. While Adam Silvers office has a fleeting memory that Lillard competed in five events at All-Star Weekend in 2014 - Rising Stars, Skills Competition, 3-Point shootout, Slam Dunk Contest and the All-Star Game – he receives no love, no respect and no thanks. The NBA Dunk Contest has reverted to its original format. Who do you like in this years contest? Victor Oladipo, Mason Plumlee, Zach Lavine or Giannis Antetokounmpo? Strickland: Unless there is a meltdown of epic proportion or a Chuck Hayes sighting as a late entry, Minnys Zach Levine should win easily. His bungees are banoodles and on Valentines Day, hell be handing out dunks bordering on the absurdative, breaking the hearts of his fellow contestants. The setup for a showdown with his T-Wolves teammate Andrew Wiggins in 2016 for the All-Star festivities in Toronto would all be in place! Bala: Truthfully, I havent really jazzed about the dunk contest for years, but if I had to pick one it would have to be Zach Lavine. Lets see if his hops make for creative show dunks. Watson: Always bet on the little guy. Historically, you can look at shorter dunkers like Spud Webb or Nate Robinson who have captured the judges attention due to the distance they have to get to the rim. Oladipo is just that, a 64 package of power, creativity, springs and athleticism. Brady Heslip was showing out in the D-League but opted to move across the water to play in Europe. Would he have had a realistic shot at a call-up this season? Strickland: Yes, but only to be a practice player filling due to injury. At 62, 180 lbs., Heslip doesnt possess the size, speed, handle, defensive capabilities and necessary wrinkles in his game to be an everyday NBA player. There may be mannequins out here somewhere who can beat Brady off the bounce. All jokes aside, all the best to him in his overseas endeavors. Bala: Even though I love Brady Heslip as a player and he was torching guys for 24.5 per game, I dont think he would have been called up. What can he offer to a team outside of that? Even though he could be a great benefit as an outside shooter to open up courts, hes not quick enough to defend an NBA point guard and not big enough to defend an NBA two, two big issues. I think he made the right choice right now. Watson: Heslips shooting and scoring were proving undeniable to notice by league front offices, however his role at the next level would definitely be more situational than rotational. Hes a professional and due credit to him for starting his career, getting playing time and being compensated accordingly. Jason Kidd: NBA Coach Of The Year? Strickland: Oh, indeed! The sexy, early season frontrunner, Golden States Steve Kerr, basically inherited Mark Jacksons solid teams and gave them more structure to improve their standing in a fairly dramatic way. Bud Ball is all the rage in the ATL as former San Antonio Spurs assistant-turned Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer leads a cohesive veteran group who has won 32 of their last 34 after a slow 7-6 start to impress many. But what in the wide, wide world of wins witchcraft and hoops wizardry is happening with the very surprising Milwaukee Bucks? At 24-22, the Bucks have exceeded last seasons win total of 15 and have done so mostly without mercurial centre Larry Sanders and the No. 2 pick in the 2014 draft Jabari Parker, all the while pushing point guard Brandon Knight to borderline All-Star status. The answer, Jason Kidd happened. Bala: That is a pretty good choice right now. The Bucks are playing incredibly despite missing Jabari Parker and Larry Sanders for big chunks and having a lineup that could really be role players on any other team. They are beating teams they should and losing close games to teams they shouldnt be beating, so Id say this kind of improvement needs serious consideration. If it doesnt go to him, it better go to Derek Fisher for setting the Knicks up for one epic season of futility. Watson: Jason Kidd, coach of mediocrity. There isnt any lower to go when youre at the bottom, and Kidds transformation of a lottery team to a playoff team has been great. However, his means to get there were more than unscrupulous and Steve Kerr has the Warriors on pace for a franchise-best season that could soar as high as 60 wins. Kerr gets my vote.

Alyssa Naeher Jersey .J. -- Having Ondrej Pavelec earn his 100th NHL win and seeing Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane break goal droughts were nice highlights for the Winnipeg Jets.NEW YORK, N.Y. - Once mumps invades a professional sports dressing room, it finds a fertile breeding ground and the NHL is finding that it is not easy to get rid of.Multiple players on multiple teams from coast to coast have come down with the mumps, an illness more typically associated with children.It started in Anaheim and plagued the Ducks, who had three players affected. The Minnesota Wild was next, with five victims. Tanner Glass of the New York Rangers then came down with it, and as recently as Wednesday, the New Jersey Devils had two players turn up sick.It is certainly an outbreak that was unexpected and has caused unwanted disruption at the team level, but it is not something we have any significant control over, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. As long as our clubs are doing what they need to do to minimize risk of contraction, we are hopeful that the wave of cases will run their course and life will return to normal.The Ducks hosted the Wild in mid-October, New Jersey and the Rangers played each other a few days later and Minnesota visited the Rangers not long after that before facing the Devils in mid-November. But it was not clear whether the teams shared the virus with each other or picked it up in other ways.You see the hits that they have, and sometimes the spraying of saliva, said Dr. Judith Aberg, chief of the infectious diseases division at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. I think they are high risk. I am surprised we havent actually seen this before.The illness isnt just hitting hockey players, of course. Students on college campuses have also recently fallen victim in another close environment that promotes spreading of the very contagious virus.It is relatively uncommon since the vaccine was licensed in the early 1960s, but this year weve actually had more cases, Aberg said. In 2013, we had less than 500 cases, and already this year were looking at about 1,000 cases in the United States. One person is expected to infect 10 others.Millions are vaccinated at a young age, but Aberg said the immunity can wane with age and 10 to 20 per cent of individuals who have been vaccinated may not have full protection.The NHL and the players association have provided information to teams and players on ways to protect themselves against the mumpss.dddddddddddd Vaccination decisions for any disease are made by club medical staffs and the players themselves.The Rangers quickly moved to give boosters to players, and other teams have done the same. The Ducks cleaned and sterilized their entire operation following the outbreak that hit Corey Perry and others. Everyone was encouraged to get re-vaccinated and most did.Some affected players have already returned to the ice, and all should recover without lasting effects.Each season at training camp, players are encouraged to provide their vaccination records. Childhood vaccine programs are fairly universal and accessible worldwide, although arent mandatory in every country, the NHLPA said.The NHLPA has been actively educating the players regarding the recent outbreak, while providing best practices on how to avoid contracting and spreading mumps, players association spokesman Jonathan Weatherdon said.Many of the recommendations about locker room and bench behaviour are similar to the standard precautions the NHL provides regarding the flu, which is similarly transmitted.Simple coughing and sneezing and getting those respiratory droplets on each other can cause the spread of mumps, Aberg said. The problem is that it is contagious before you have symptoms. Thats where it gets tricky because you dont know youre going to come down with the mumps, and youre contagious. Then you are contagious for five days or so after you have symptoms.The illness even felled Minnesota ironman defenceman Ryan Suter, the rare American-born player to be affected.Every Wild player was offered a booster shot last month when the virus surfaced. Suter decided not to take it, and paid the price. He was the fifth Minnesota player — all defencemen whose cubicles are next to each other — to come down with the mumps.Suter, who hadnt missed a game since joining the Wild in 2012, led the NHL in ice time each of the last two seasons.I probably wash my hands more than anybody, he said. I go out of the way to make sure Im a clean guy. So for me to get it, it stunk. I always tell these guys, Youve got to be mentally strong and youll never get sick. So theyre all giving me a hard time.___AP Sports Writers Greg Beacham in Anaheim, Calif., and Dave Campbell in St. Paul, Minn., contributed to this report.

Toronto after throwing three scoreless innings for double-A New
TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays activated right-hander Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list and designated second baseman Chris Gets for assignment Sunday. Janssen, 32, has been on the disabled list since the start of the season with a left abdominal lower back strain. The right-hander posted a career-high 34 saves last year while posting a 4-1 record and 2.56 earned-run average. In part of eight major-league seasons, Janssen has a 26-21 record, 3.48 ERA and 65 saves in 339 career games. He returns to Toronto after throwing three scoreless innings for double-A New Hampshire over three rehab appearances. Getz, 30, appeared in 10 games this season, posting a .160 average with a double and two steals. DeShawn Shead Lions Jersey .

United on Saturday night and boost the Unions playoff hopes. Nick DeLeon scored in the 36th minute for United (3-23-6), which had ample opportunities to build on its lead but went its 10th straight match without a victory.At first, the series looked like it was going to end in quickly, which was how everyone expected it to end. But the Leafs clawed back. After being down 3-1 in the series, they fought their way into a Game 7, mainly due to the play of their goalie James Reimer: The Leafs came out hard in Game 7, but then… IT HAPPENED. After having a 4-1 lead with 10 minutes left in the game, the Bruins would come back and eventually win the game in overtime. Here are the highlights from that historic game (come on Leaf fans, you can watch, its been a year): Ridiculous. The city of Toronto was in shock. Watch the disappointment in Maple Leafs Square at around 2:50 of this video as Bergeron puts in the overtimee winner: It was a devastating blow to Leaf nation.dddddddddddd Comedy star Will Ferrell even expressed his emotions on the Leafs loss (sort of): And unfortunately this loss still lingers with Leaf Nation as the team still hasnt recovered form what happened last spring. Management potentially overreacted to the Game 7 loss as they made roster moves in the summer which seem to have hurt the team more than provide help so far. That one game has created so much damage to everyone involved.

figure it out. I thought Pau played hard, though he was rusty
Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week, they discuss the ongoing Redskins name debate, a truly dominant pitching performance, the bargain basement standards of the LPGA and MLBs latest fine import. Bruce Arthur, Toronto Star: My thumb is down to the Washington Redskins name debate, and not just because theres any debate at all over the most clearly racist name in sports. No, its because the debates getting dumber by the second, as it ratchets up. A sitting U.S. Congressman - low bar, I know - compared Barack Obama to Kim Jong-Il, or -Un, after a federal trademark case declared the name derogatory. A Fox News host - low bar, I know - compared the name to the New York Giants offending tall people. This happens often, and its always, always stupid, people. Its like the Yankees, or the Lakers, or the Dallas Cowboys of stupid. Calling Dallas the Cowboys, of course, should only be offensive to competent and/or humble cowboys, one and all. Steve Simmons, Sun Media: My thumb is up to Clayton Kershaw, superstar pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who brought the no-hitter back into vogue with a performance for the ages Wednesday night at Coors Field. And I know what youre thinking: another no-hitter, big deal. Theres been so many of them in recent seasons that weve all grown a little bored of pitchers we didnt know or care about throwing another no-no. But it was different against the Colorado Rockies. This is a big name - Kershaw - striking out 15 batters, walking no one, in total command, only reaching the count of three balls on one batter and had it not been for an error by Hanley Ramirez, were talking perfect game here. Add Vin Scully broadcasting to the occasion and baseball doesnt get any better than that. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated: My thumb is down not to 11-year-old Lucy Li, who qualified for the U.S. Open, but to womens professional golf, whose thimble-deep talent pool made it possible for an 11-year old to qualify. The sixth-grader, who looked like she should be entered in a hopscotch tournament and not slugging it out on Pinehurst no. 2, shot a pair of credible 78s, a score that matched marquee names Natalie Gulbis and Laura Davies but left her far off the cut. Nice two-day story. But rather than celebrate the presence of a sprite in the event, shouldnt the USGA, and by extension the LPGA, be mortified a novice qualified? The kid is precocious, but she isnt exactly Mozart. Dave Naylor, TSN: And my thumb is up to Masahiro Tanaka of the New York Yankees for proving that sometimes a player really is worth all the hype. You may remember how Tanakas transfer from Japan was the major story of the MLB off-season. You may also remember that when the first Major Leage hitter he faced in Melky Cabrera took him deep … some were wondering if the Yankees had just uncovered the next “Dice-K” Matsuzaka. Well right now Tanaka leads the American League in wins and ERA and is among the leaders in innings-pitched, as well as strikeouts and walks per nine innings. And hes looking like a good bet to win both the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year honours. Coming off a perfect 24-0 record in Japan last season, experts cautioned not to expect the same thing from Tanaka in the major leagues. And they were right. After all, on May 20th against the Cubs he did something he never did all of last season in japan. He took the loss. Harry Kane Jersey . It was the quickest three-goal sequence in Olympic history, with the latter two coming just eight seconds apart.

Georges-Kevin NKoudou Jersey . Anderson shook off some unusually poor shooting and hit two clutch 3-pointers in overtime that carried the New Orleans Pelicans to a 111-106 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. LOS ANGELES -- The Milwaukee Bucks caught the Los Angeles Lakers in one of their worst ruts in decades, and Brandon Knight was able to take full advantage. Knight scored 18 of his career-high 37 points in the third quarter, and the team with the NBAs worst record beat the injury-jinxed Lakers 94-79 on Tuesday night. "My teammates did a great job of running the floor and running the lanes and creating plays for one another, and I think that opened it up for me and a lot of other guys," Knight said. "But it started with our defence. We got after it. Part of that was them missing shots, but I want to give credit to our guys for contesting those shots." The Lakers ended the year the same way they began it -- with six straight losses. They had never ended a calendar year with more than three consecutive defeats in any of the franchises 65 previous seasons. Los Angeles will begin the new year 13-19 -- the teams first losing record since the 2002-03 season, when they also started out 13-19 following their third straight championship. The year was a distinctly sobering one for the Lakers, who mourned the passing of flamboyant owner Jerry Buss, longtime executive Bill Sharman and Vern Mikkelsen, who helped the team win four NBA titles in Minneapolis. They also got swept in the first round of the playoffs and had star-crossed Kobe Bryant in the lineup for only six games so far this season. Adding insult to Bryants injuries was the end of a 320-game home sellout streak last month. "I know an historic franchise like the Los Angeles Lakers will be fine," said Bucks forward Caron Butler, who spent the 2004-05 season with the Lakers. "Not having Jerry Buss at the helm anymore is a significant loss, but Jeanie and Jim and the rest of the Buss family know the business of basketball. They know the legacy of their father, and to restore that would be a wonderful feeling." Pau Gasol and Nick Young scored 25 points each for the Lakers, who shot 35.8 per cent from the field. Young, who led the team in scoring in each of the previous six games as a reserve, made his seventh start of the season. Gasol, who had missed three straight games and four of the previous six because of a sinus infection and bronchitis, returned to a talent-starved Lakers lineup already missing Bryant, Stteve Nash and Steve Blake.dddddddddddd Point guard Jordan Farmar played 21 scoreless minutes in his fourth game since returning from a torn hamstring, and sat out the fourth quarter after the hamstring tightened up. "We are down at the bottom," said coach Mike DAntoni, who used his eighth different starting lineup in as many games and 17th in 32 contests. "The injuries have torn everybody up, but we have to band together and figure it out. I thought Pau played hard, though he was rusty at first. He didnt look good in the first quarter, but then he picked it up." Trailing by 20 points with 9:43 remaining, the Lakers closed to 86-79 with a 26-4 run capped by Kendall Marshalls 3-pointer with 3:21 to play. But the determined Bucks were able to close it out for their second victory in 10 games. The Lakers were coming off narrow losses to Utah and Philadelphia, who entered Tuesday a combined 19-45 and last in their respective divisions when they faced them. DAntonis undermanned squad was even worse against a Milwaukee lineup that came in 6-24. But the Bucks beat them for the fourth time in five meetings, after winning only five of the previous 30. The Lakers missed their first 11 shots while the Bucks opened the game with a 14-0 run. Los Angeles didnt get its first field goal until Gasol hit a 14-footer from the lane with 5:08 left in the first quarter, but Milwaukee extended its margin to 21-4 on Ersan Ilyasovas 19-footer about 2 minutes later. Luke Ridnour made his fourth start of the season for Milwaukee and scored 11 points in 36 minutes. Frontcourt swingman John Henson missed his second straight game because of a high left ankle sprain that occurred on Dec. 20, and is expected to be sidelined for at least two more contests. NOTES: The Bucks, who entered the NBA in 1968-69, are 2-6 on New Years Eve. The only other victory came on the final day of 1969, when they beat the San Diego Rockets 143-126 in regulation with 35 points from future Laker Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. ... The Lakers are 8-4 on New Years Eve and 4-2 since moving from Minneapolis to Los Angeles. ... Lakers reserve G Xavier Henry was sidelined for the first time this season because of a bone bruise and cartilage abnormality in his right knee, and F Wesley Johnson didnt play because of gastroenteritis.

MUNICH, Germany -- Olympic bronze medallist Jan Hudec will miss the final World Cup race of the season and the Canadian alpine skiing championships later this month after suffering a back injury in training. The 32-year-old from Calgary, whose has battled injury throughout his career, missed Wednesdays downhill and will skip Thursdays super-G at the World Cup finals in Switzerland. Hudec crashed during super-G training in Austria last week and tweeted a photo of his bruised and swollen back on Wednesday. Hudec became the first Canadian alpine skier in 20 years to win an Olympic medal last month in Sochi when he finished third in the mens super-G. Hudec is currently in Munich and will return to Canada with the rest of the team on Friday. He expects to be sidelined from training for six to eight weeks. "If all goes well with the back I could return to training as early as May," said Hudec. "Ill have more time to prepare for the season and hope to come back stronger." He said the Olympics inspired him to keep competing.

Frank Kaminsky Jersey . - San Diego Padres centre fielder Cameron Maybin is going to be out two to three months after rupturing his left biceps tendon during a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.NEW YORK -- Make that back-to-back blowouts, and at least one Knick swears he saw it coming. "Yeah, I knew it was going to eventually happen. Im glad that it did," point guard Raymond Felton said. "It was a good night to happen in Brooklyn, then we came back tonight and showed it wasnt a fluke. Thats what a lot of people were trying to say. We came out tonight to really prove that." They sure did, once again looking more like a juggernaut than a joke. Carmelo Anthony had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and New York snapped a seven-game home losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 121-83 on Friday night for its first victory at Madison Square Garden since October. "We got tired of losing. Whether we figured everything out in two games, thats yet to come, but well take these two wins," Anthony said. Andrea Bargnani and J.R. Smith each added 17 points for the Knicks, who followed their 113-83 rout of Brooklyn on Thursday with an even more powerful performance, giving them consecutive victories for the first time this season after a nine-game losing streak. "At some point it was going to get unleashed," Felton said. "Brooklyn was just the team that got the first wrath of it, so everybody else is going to have to feel it later on, too." The Knicks hadnt won at home since beating Milwaukee in their season opener on Oct. 30. The seven-game skid had matched the longest in franchise history, set during the 2007-08 season. They ended it emphatically, just missing the biggest victory in the NBA this season, the Clippers 39-point rout of Chicago on Nov. 24, according to STATS. "I think the results of their game in Brooklyn carried over to this game," Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn said. "They shot the ball extremely well like they did in Brooklyn, so there you have an NBA game for you." The Knicks made a season-best 17 3-pointers -- a night after hitting 16 -- and turned it into another easy night for Anthony, who took only 10 shots one night aafter attempting only 12.dddddddddddd "I wanted to try to do something a little different to see if it worked," he said. "Me scoring 30 wasnt working." New York moved ahead of the Nets and out of last place. Despite their struggles, the Knicks (5-13) are only 2 1/2 games behind first-place Boston in the pathetic Atlantic Division, and can move even closer when they host the Celtics on Sunday afternoon. Arron Afflalo scored 20 points for the Magic, who dropped their fourth straight. Victor Oladipo added 17 points and nine rebounds. Amare Stoudemire sat out for the Knicks, still not ready to play on back-to-back nights after off-season knee surgery. No matter, as Metta World Peace picked up the extra minutes and scored 12 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. finished with 15 and Felton had 14. The Knicks broke it open by outscoring the Magic 30-15 in the third quarter to open a 20-point lead. The highlight came on a ferocious drive and dunk by Iman Shumpert. Orlando fell to 1-8 on the road, running out to a quick start but then getting run over from there. The Magic hit six of their first seven shots, including all three 3-pointers, to storm to a 15-5 lead. The Knicks started 2 for 12 but eventually got going and trailed just 31-28 after one. The Knicks answered with five 3-pointers in the first 4 minutes of the second quarter, going ahead 43-35, and took a 59-54 advantage into halftime. "They put us in tough situations," Orlando guard Jameer Nelson said. "We just have to recognize situations and get better at them so it (doesnt) happen again." Nelson was back for Orlando after missing three straight games with a sprained left foot, but leading rebounder Nik Vucevic missed his second in a row with a sprained left ankle. NOTES: The Knicks seven-game winning streak against Orlando is their longest active streak against an opponent. They have beaten Milwaukee six straight times. ... Shumpert finished with 10 points and every Knicks player scored.

In nine career NHL games with the Canucks, he has cored one goal and registered 21 penalty minutes. Acton has seen three games with the Oilers this season, registering no points and five penalty minutes. He has played 33 career games, all with the Oilers, scoring three goals and two assists.

His place in those pinstripes? Tanaka seems to have a different take than most everyone else. "No, I dont feel that Im the ace," he said Saturday through a translator. Tanaka shut down Joe Mauer and the other Minnesota hitters while lowering his AL-best ERA to 2.06, and Brian McCann lined a go-ahead double in the eighth inning Saturday that sent the New York Yankees over the Twins 3-1. Tanaka (8-1) permitted only an unearned run in eight innings. The heralded rookie from Japan gave up four singles, just two leaving the infield. Tanaka struck out nine, giving him 88 in 78 2-3 innings. The 25-year-old righty is fanning more batters in the big leagues than he did back home before getting a $155 million, seven-year contract from the Yankees. "Its probably the guys here havent seen me," he said. Tanaka walked two and bounced two wild pitches. But he was especially sharp against Mauer, the three-time AL batting champion. Mauer, who faced Tanaka in spring training, struck out on three pitches in the first inning with a runner on third. Mauer fanned on four pitches with runners on second and third in the third, then tapped into a double play and later grounded out. "Guys said the ball was just disappearing," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "His splitter is unbelievable, hes got all the pitches." "And we also saw that hes very competitive. A few times you could see him yelling at himself, hes very competitive," he said. Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira left in the sixth because of soreness in his surgically repaired right wrist, the same problem that forced him to miss three games this week. Manager Joe Girardi said Teixeira was expected to miss two more games. "Our feeling, right now, is that its going to be short term," Girardi said. It was 1-all when Jacoby Ellsbury singled with one out in the Yankees eighth off Brian Duensing (1-2). Ellsbury stole second, and continued to third when catcher Joosmil Pintos throw from his knees went into centre field for an error.dddddddddddd In light showers, Brian Roberts walked and McCann hit an RBI double over leaping first baseman Chris Parmelee into the right-field corner. Following a 34-minute rain delay, Kelly Johnson drove in a run with an infield single. David Robertson pitched the ninth for his 12th save. Minnesota has lost seven of nine. Yangervis Solarte homered for the Yankees first run. Tanaka and Twins starter Kevin Correia both escaped early trouble, and nobody pitched a perfect 1-2-3 inning until the seventh. Brian Dozier grounded the first pitch of the game off Johnsons glove at third base for an error, moved up on a wild pitch and scored on Josh Willinghams two-out single. Correia got out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the first when he struck out Teixeira and got McCann to bounce into a double play. Solarte homered in the fourth, giving the rookie infielder a team-leading 26 RBIs. Solarte singled with two outs and the slow-footed McCann on second in the sixth. McCann was held at third as strong-armed right fielder Oswaldo Arcia fielded the ball and threw home, and Solarte was thrown out trying to take second. Arcia had two assists in Friday nights 6-1 win. NOTES: Twins rookie CF Danny Santana was out of the lineup, a day after he needed seven stitches to close a cut on his left eyelid. He was hurt when his batting helmet flew off during a headfirst slide and bounced up to hit him in the face. "We have to be guarded here," Gardenhire said. ... Gardenhire won a replay challenge in the third, and Eduardo Escobar wound up with an infield hit. ... Former Yankees All-Star Phil Hughes (5-1, 3.23) faces his former team Sunday. Rookie Chase Whitley (0-0, 2.57) starts for New York. ... Derek Stepan, Ryan McDonagh and Derick Brassard of the New York Rangers were in the crowd, and got big cheers when shown on the videoboard.

At a press conference after the event, Chan was asked whether he was going to skate in the world championships next month in Japan, where he would be going for a fourth consecutive title. He was non-committal in his response. "I dont know if I could go to another one now. Im pretty exhausted," Chan said. It definitely does drain you and you lose perspective." Chan told CBCs Olympic Daytime that all hes focused on is enjoying the rest of the Games. "Right now I have in mind this hockey game Im going to, USA-Russia, and enjoying my time here and celebrating with my teammates," he said. "Were young, we have a lot ahead in our lives, but were going to remember this moment together." Chan was just behind 19-year-old Japanese phenom Yuzuru Hanyu after the mens short program was completed, essentially making it a two-man race for the gold medal. The door swung wide open for Chan after Hanyu stumbled through his long program. Skating immediately after Hanyuu, Chan looked to be on his way to gold after landing his first quad.dddddddddddd. But the three-time reigning world champion stumbled through the rest of his program and couldnt overtake Hanyu, finishing the long program with a score of 178.10, behind Hanyus 178.64. That left Chan with the silver for the second consecutive Olympics. Though the disappointment was palpable, Chan remained positive, and continued to speak in terms of his overall career. "For the first time I can say Im a seven-time national champion, three-time world champion, [and] two-time silver medallist at the Olympic Games and thats huge," he said. "I dont know any other skater who has done that. Its a tremendous career. "I dont want to look at the medals and successes Ive had, I want to look at how Ive changed the sport." No Canadian man has ever won a singles gold in Olympic figure skating. Brian Orser won silver in 1984 and again in 1988, the latter of which saw him edged by a tenth of a point by American Brian Boitano. Elvis Stojko, a three-time world champion as well, won Olympic silver twice, in 1994 and 1998.

NEWARK, NJ - Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk is considered day-to-day with knee inflammation and right wing Dan Cleary is also sidelined with a knee injury. Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. He missed nearly all of January with a leg injury and sat out seven games in November and December with a concussion. Despite the injuries, Datsyuk is still Detroits second-leading goal scorer with 15 and is fourth on the team with 33 points. Cleary has four goals and four assists in 52 games this season.

Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn scored third-period goals to help the Stars beat the Ottawa Senators 3-1 on Saturday. The Stars snapped a four-game losing streak (0-3-1) and sent the Senators to their sixth consecutive defeat (0-5-1), tying Ottawas longest skid this season. "Theyve answered almost every call this year," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "From the (six-game losing streak) in January to this little bit of a tough stretch. Weve just got to stay with it." Jordie Benn had two assists for the Stars. Cody Eakin had tied the game with a second-period goal. "This is just playoff hockey now the rest of the way," Ruff said. "Youre going to have to have the ability to come back. Youre going to need some big saves at crucial times." Kari Lehtonen did that after Erik Karlsson netted Ottawas goal just 3:27 into the game. Lehtonen made 26 saves in his second game since returning from a head injury sustained on March 11 in Dallas previous victory. The most important stop came after Eakins tying goal at 15:07 of the second. Ottawas Erik Condra took a shot from in front that Lehtonen stopped, but he and Condra ended up in the net. The play was ruled no goal. "I was able to make the save," Lehtonen said. "The puck was in front of my pads. He got pushed from behind, and he pushed me into the net. "It could have gone the other way too. It was good to see (the referee) was on top of the play, so I wasnt too worried about it." Lehtonen lost at Philadelphia on Thursday. "I felt good in Philadelphia. The result wasnt very good," Lehtonen said. "(Saturday) I got a couple of good bounces and a couple of posts, and the end result was good." Senators coach Paul MacLean said that teams create their own good fortune. "If you dont feel you have any puck luck, then youre not working hard enough on a day-to-day basis," he said. "You shouldnt expect a break or something to go your way unless youre out there doing the work." Daleys goal, following a brief power play, came after Senators goalie Robin Lehner stopped Colton Sceviiours shot.ddddddddddddDallas Ray Whitney retrieved the puck and passed it to Daley. Eakin also scored off a rebound. "It feels like its been a long time (10 games) for me," Eakin said. "It was nice to chip in and relieve that top line. We get momentum when we play four lines and everybody is creating opportunities and putting pucks on the net." Jamie Benn, part of that top line, reached 30 goals for the first time in his five NHL seasons. He took a pass from Tyler Seguin at the top of the left circle and fired a shot into the upper left corner of the net. Lehner made 39 saves against Dallas, which had a 42-27 shots advantage. The Senators goalie had allowed 19 goals in losing the previous four games. "I thought he came back, and I think thats really a good part of the learning experience for him after things didnt go his way," MacLean said. "I thought he came out and he really battled." Dallas outshot Ottawa 17-7 in the first period, but the Senators scored the only goal. Colin Greening made a pass from the top of the right circle to the high slot to Karlsson, who fired a shot past Lehtonen at 3:27. "We got the lead, but couldnt really follow through until the end there, and they had a couple of nice goals to finish it off," Karlsson said. "Unfortunately, just couldnt put the puck in the net." Dallas failed to score on three power plays in the second but the Stars broke through during 4-on-4 play with 4:53 left in the period. Lehner stopped Valeri Nichushkins attempt as he skated across the crease, but Eakin poked the rebound out from under the goalie to tie it. NOTES: C Shawn Horcoff returned for Dallas after missing four games because of a broken finger. LW Erik Coles streak of 269 consecutive games played ended because of an upper-body injury. He is day to day. ... Despite their recent struggles, the Stars are 6-1-1 in their last eight home games. They are 5-1 in games in which defenceman Daley has scored. ...

Wilson for Mako Vunipola, who is injured, and Dan
Fun times for the Blues against the Sabres, Johansson a goal-scoring threat for the Capitals, the Habs-Stars trade, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Jori Lehtera – The first-year Blues centre recorded a natural hat trick in a 6-1 win against Buffalo. Linemates Jaden Schwartz (3 A) and Vladimir Tarasenko (2 A) got in on the act as the trio, led by Schwartz (20 shot attempts for, 7 against, 74.1%) controlled better than two-thirds of the even-strength shot attempts when they were on the ice. Lehtera, a third-round pick in 2008, has been a great addition to the St. Louis lineup, putting up 14 points in 16 games, falling behind only his emerging star wingers Schwartz (15 points in 15 games) and Tarasenko (19 points in 15 games). Shutouts – Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist, who has been off to a so-so start this season, turned aside all 33 shots sent his way by Pittsburgh and Canadiens G Carey Price stopped all 29 shots against Winnipeg. Marcus Johansson – The Capitals left winger scored two goals and had eight shots on goal, in a 4-2 win against Columbus. The pair of goals leaves Johansson with eight goals in 15 games this season, matching his 80-game total from last season, and he has seven even-strength goals this year, which is more than he’s scored in the previous two seasons (five even-strength goals in 114 games). ZEROES Viktor Fasth – The Oilers goaltender isn’t exactly pushing Ben Scrivens for the starting job. He gave up three goals on 17 shots, getting pulled after the first period at Nashville, and through six games has an .885 save percentage. Michal Neuvirth - It’s not an easy life goaltending for Buffalo, and for 90% of the game against the Blues, Neuvirth held his own, but after allowing three power play goals in a two-minute span in the third period, the night ended with six goals against on 29 shots. Even after that, Neuvirth still has a respectable .915 save percentage in eight games this year. Shotless – Wild RW Charlie Coyle recorded no shot attempts in 16:52 of ice time at New Jersey, while Coyotes RW Martin Erat failed to generate a shot attempt in 18:38 vs. Dallas. A single shot attempt shouldn’t be too much for forwards playing big minutes on a scoring line, especially in games that their teams ultimately lost. HABS-STARS TRADE There was a minor deal between Montreal and Dallas Tuesday, but there are some ramifications for others on those rosters. A quick look at the deal: Sergei Gonchar – A 40-year-old defenceman who was injured at the start of the year, Gonchar has played very little (13:02) in three games since returning to action. He was, at one time, an elite power play defenceman, but his role has decreased significantly since arriving in Dallas last season. He’s a third-pair defenceman who can help the second power play unit, which doesn’t seem like much contribution for a player who comes with a $4.6-million cap hit. Travis Moen – A fourth-line winger who has no points while playing a career-low 10:30 per game in 10 games for Montreal this season. There’s little reason to expect him to be anything more than a fourth or fifth-line winger for Dallas. The trade-off for Dallas is that they gain more flexibility this year, by taking on Moen’s contract, which comes with a $1.85-million cap hit, but runs through next season. John Klingberg – Called up to the Stars from the AHL, where he scored 12 points (4 G, 8 A) in 10 games, the 2010 fifth-round pick made his NHL debut at Arizona, playing 18:32 with team-best possession stats (21 shot attempts for, 13 against, 61.8%) alongside partner Alex Goligoski. Nathan Beaulieu – This is where the deal gets dicey for Montreal. They’ve already sent Jarred Tinordi to the AHL to make room for Gonchar, but if Gonchar’s going to get into the Montreal lineup, it’s likely at the expense of 21-year-old Beaulieu who has played sheltered minutes on the Habs’ third pair, but has been stellar in that role. POSSESSION STATS - MONTREAL DEFENCE Player Corsi% CorsiRel% Nathan Beaulieu 54.4% +4.9% P.K. Subban 52.3% +3.6% Andrei Markov 51.5% +2.1% Jarred Tinordi 50.5% -2.4% Mike Weaver 47.9% -2.1% Tom Gilbert 47.6% -3.9% Alexei Emelin 47.2% -2.5% Maybe Gonchar will get into the lineup in place of Weaver, but if it’s Beaulieu that gets bumped, there’s a decent chance that the Canadiens are going to suffer during 5-on-5 play. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Mikael Granlund – The Wild centre, who has no points in four games and only five points in 14 games this season, despite excellent possession (56.2%) stats, played a season-low 12:53 at New Jersey. Ales Hemsky – Off to a miserable start in Dallas, with no goals and one assist in 15 games, Hemsky played less at even strength (8:40) than any other Stars at Arizona. Brandon Prust – Played 19:02 to lead all Canadiens forwards against Winnipeg, and didn’t register a shot attempt. Jannik Hansen – With Radim Vrbata out with a leg injury, Hansen got a chance to play with the Sedins against Ottawa, and had a strong night possession-wise (19 shot attempts for, 8 against, 70.4%). Leon Draisaitl – The Oilers rookie was held to a career-low 7:25 ice time at Nashville. He has one point in the past eight games, and four points in 16 games this season, but does have favourable possession (53.8%) stats. Beau Bennett – After suffering a knee injury in the preseason, the 22-year-old Penguins winger was eased into the NHL lineup after racking up five assists in a couple of AHL games. Bennett played 9:35 against the Rangers, mostly on the fourth line with Marcel Goc and Craig Adams. John Moore – Returned from suspension to play 21:49 for the Rangers against Pittsburgh. Josh Gorges – Played 10:10 at St. Louis and left with a lower-body injury. Johnny Oduya – Left Tuesday’s game against Tampa Bay with a lower-body injury after blocking a shot. Tyler Johnson – Left Tuesday’s game against Chicago with an upper-body injury after a crosscheck in the ribs from Blackhawks D Brent Seabrook. Sharks resting – Trailing 4-0 early in the third period at Florida, the San Jose Sharks limited the ice time of C Joe Thornton, RW Joe Pavelski and LW Tomas Hertl, keeping all three under 14 minutes. Jesper Fast – Called up to the Rangers, to play on the fourth line with Tanner Glass and Dominic Moore, after scoring nine points (1 G,8 A) in 11 games with Hartford of the AHL. Anthony Duclair was a healthy scratch as a result. Drayson Bowman – Called up to the Canadiens, the left winger played 6:39 against Winnipeg, but was buried in his own end (1 shot attempt for, 9 against, 10.0%) Jonathon Blum – Inserted into the Minnesota lineup after five points (1 G, 4 A) in seven AHL games, the 2007 first-rounder played 8:35 in his first NHL game of the season.

Devante Smith-Pelly – With no Corey Perry, the Ducks have Patrick Maroon and Smith-Pelly skating on the wings with Ryan Getzlaf. It’s a good opportunity for Smith-Pelly, who has played nearly 39 minutes, generating nine shots on goal, in the past couple games.

Argentina lost all six of its matches in the recent Rugby Championship, has just fired its coach and is missing its captain and one world-class player. Surely an easy home win for the English on Saturday, then? Not according to captain Chris Robshaw. "As soon as you take a team like Argentina lightly, youre in a world of trouble," Robshaw said. Robshaws note of caution belies the increasing sense of assuredness and confidence that has spread through Englands ranks in Lancasters near two years in charge. Stretching back to the victory over New Zealand in December 2012, England has won eight of its last nine internationals -- a run that takes in back-to-back successes in a short tour of Argentina last summer, earned without its British and Irish Lions contingent. It has won its last five home games. Victories over southern hemisphere opposition used to be rare and extremely hard-earned. Yet, last Saturday, the English often laboured against Australia in their first international of the season but still ran out 20-13 winners. "Weve started this series fantastically and we need to kick on," Robshaw said. "We got some huge momentum, beating Australia for the first time myself. We know now what it takes to beat one of the southern hemisphere sides." Argentina isnt so buoyant. Reeling from a chastening Rugby Championship where they shipped an average of more than 37 points a game, the Pumas have replaced coach Santiago Phelan with Daniel Hourcade, seen iconic centre Felipe Contepomi retire and both captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe and Juan Martin Hernandez succumb to injuries that forced them out of the entire autumn series. Argentina hasnt beaten a major ruugby nation since winning in Wales on November 2012 but Juan Manuel Leguizamon, who will captain the team in place of Fernandez Lobbe, isnt giving up hope.dddddddddddd "The team is very tight and our objectives are clear. People are talking about (Argentinas struggles), but we dont care, Leguizamon said. "We are all professional players and we must adapt ourselves as quickly as possible to the new system." As ever in games involving Argentina, one of the most powerful scrummaging units around, the front-row battle will be key. England has overhauled its entire front three, bringing in fiery hooker Dylan Hartley for Tom Youngs and props Joe Marler and David Wilson for Mako Vunipola, who is injured, and Dan Cole. Centers Joel Tomkins and Billy Twelvetrees struggled against Australia but are retained as the midfield pairing with first-choice Brad Barritt and Manu Tuilagi still injured. Ben Foden comes in for Marland Yarde on the wing, while lock Geoff Parling has recovered from the effects of concussion and is on the bench. ------ Lineups: England: Mike Brown, Chris Ashton, Joel Tomkins, Billy Twelvetrees, Ben Foden, Owen Farrell, Lee Dickson, Billy Vunipola, Chris Robshaw (captain), Tom Wood, Courtney Lawes, Joe Launchbury, David Wilson, Dylan Hartley, Joe Marler. Reserves: Tom Youngs, Alex Corbisiero, Dan Cole, Geoff Parling, Ben Morgan, Ben Youngs, Toby Flood, Alex Goode. Argentina: Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino, Horacio Agulla, Marcelo Bosch, Santiago Fernandez, Juan Imhoff, Nicolas Sanchez, Tomas Cubelli; Juan Manuel Leguizamon (captain), Julio Farias Cabello, Pablo Matera, Patricio Albacete, Mariano Galarza, Maximiliano Bustos, Eusebio Guinazu, Marcos Ayerza.

The Joint Agreement was put into place to protect both the player and the game, and the Padres fully support it." The suspension will be effective immediately and Maybin wont be eligble to join the Padres active roster until August 20th. The 27-year-old was suspended without pay. In 62 games so far this year Maybin was hitting .247 with one home run and nine runs batted in. Maybin has spent eight years in the MLB.

That is, how does he keep the red hot bat of Juan Francisco in the lineup when first base is taken by Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind is back as the designated hitter? "Maybe Francisco can play second," joked Gibbons. In all seriousness, Francisco has been a revelation for the ballclub since signing a minor league deal on April 2 and arriving in Cleveland to meet his new Blue Jays teammates on April 20. Coming off an 18-home run season split between Atlanta and Milwaukee last year, Franciscos already hit five in 61 at-bats for Toronto. He doesnt get cheated, either, having deposited one in the fourth deck of Rogers Centre, just above Paul Beestons name on the Blue Jays Level of Excellence. Franciscos slash line of .311/.403/.623 (1.026 OPS) is well above his career .248/.308/.447 (.755 OPS) but even if his history suggests his numbers will regress the longer he plays, until it happens, Francisco needs to stay in the lineup. "Right now were looking at everything," said manager John Gibbons. "While hes hot weve got to find a way to keep him in there somehow." The obvious play is to move Brett Lawrie to second base. It doesnt have to be permanent. Lawrie, should the decision be made, hopes its only temporary. "Im going to do it because its for the team but Im not necessarily amazed about it," said Lawrie. "Im a third baseman. Its where I play. Its what Ive been doing. Its what I did to work to get here. Obviously Francisco is swinging a hot bat but were going to have to find another way to get him in the lineup, who knows, but if I do get put at second base thats how it goes. Ill just do it for my team.dddddddddddd" Look at this hypothetical starting lineup with Francisco at third base and Lawrie at second base: Reyes – SSCabrera – LFBautista – RFEncarnacion – 1BFrancisco – 3BNavarro – CLind – DHLawrie – 3BRasmus – CF One through nine, wheres the easy out? The Blue Jays would be giving something up defensively with the realignment but Francisco has proven to be more adept at third base in Lawries absence than expected. "Ive been very impressed," said Gibbons. "I think that was his rap. His defence was the reason he never really established himself but we havent seen it. Of course hes not Lawrie down there but how many guys are?" Dont count on Saturday being Lawries return date. He took ground balls on Friday afternoon and participated in batting practice for a second consecutive day. Its part of the process of ramping up the effort level, testing his sore right hamstring. "Ive still got to do some other stuff baseball-wise," said Lawrie. "Ive still got to get up to relatively full speed to see how were doing. Ran on the treadmill today at a little bit higher pace so feeling a little bit better." Lawries willing to be a team guy. He also wants the appropriate recognition for his gold glove caliber play at the hot corner. "Im a third baseman," said Lawrie. "I worked my butt off to get where Im at. Im not saying its not going to help the team. Im here to do what it is to help the team but I worked my butt off to be that good at third base and continue to do what Im doing. I work everyday over there. Still continuing to get my work in and second base, it is what it is, man, its not what Im here to do. I worked my butt off to do what I do out there."

President Dana White confirmed to MMAjunkie that despite St-Pierres "frozen" contract status, the surgery in Los Angeles this week will still be covered by the UFC because he is not fully retired. St-Pierres insurance policy has only been in existence since 2011, which raised a few concerns as to whether his injury and subsequent surgery would fall within the parameters of the policy. "We have health insurance for the guys," White said. "It should be covered even if the contrract is frozen.ddddddddddddHes still under contract; hes still a UFC fighter." The former champion successfully defended his title for the ninth consecutive time against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November.

He would eventually vacate the title - now held by Hendricks - but continued to train in his time off in Montreal. Last week, he announced on Twitter that he tore the ACL in his right knee.

Calgary finished atop the CFL standings with a 14-4 record
Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Hi Kerry, I am sure you will get a ton of emails on this one. Last night, the Kings went up 2-1 on the Sharks around eight minutes remaining. My question with this goal - Is Justin Williams allowed to hit the goalie with his stick? Cant this be considered goalie interference? I am a Ducks fan waiting to see my next opponent. I really think the Sharks were cheated here. The NHL says this type of play is non-reviewable. This excuse just seems like an easy way out from a judgment call. Thanks,Jake Kevari Jake: The L.A. Kings greasy second goal should have been disallowed by referee Chris Lee as per rule 69.6 when Justin Williams used his stick to push Alex Stalock, set in a statuesque pose, that resulted in both the puck and the toe of Stalocks left skate to cross the goal line into the net. It appeared that the referee was purely focused on the puck that became partially visible under the left skate of Alex Stalock after the goalie made the initial save. If referee Lee taken had taken into account the action of Justin Williams pushing Stalock from the front of the goal crease with his hockey stick or subsequently had the opportunity to utilize video review I would hope that a different decision on the play would have been rendered. Many fans who follow me on twitter @kfraserthecall (Kings Fans perhaps?) could not comprehend that the action of Justin Williams pushing Alex Stalock with his stick became a goalie interference violation. Language contained in Rule 69 defines contact, whether incidental or otherwise, to mean any contact that is made between or among a goalkeeper and attacking player(s), whether by means of a stick or any part of the body. Some had even more difficulty accepting that Rule 69.6 applied on this play since Stalock was not knocked completely into the back of the net. Rule 69.6 reads; "In the event that a goalkeeper has been pushed into the net together with the puck by an attacking player after making a stop, the goal will be disallowed." To simplify this play, Alex Stalock made an initial save on his knees when Robin Regehr shot the puck from the top left side faceoff circle. Stalocks lower body remained stationary inside the top right side of his goal crease after the puck was gobbled up in his pads. Referee Chris Lee attacked the net straddling the goal line with the whistle in a ready position near his mouth demonstrating some intent to blow the whistle and kill the play; that is until he saw the puck peek out from under Stalocks left skate blade and pad. The refs body posture and head position indicates that he was intently focused on the puck from this moment forward. Freeze frame that visual picture in your mind for a second! If in this moment, Justin Williams dove or crashed into Alex Stalock resulting in the puck entering the net, I would think most everyone would agree that "goalie interference" had been committed and the referee should disallow the goal. The exact same illegal outcome was achieved when Justin Williams used his hockey stick to push Stalock within his goal crease and off his set-stationary position which caused both the puck and the goalies left skate to cross the goal line and enter the net as demonstrated by the overhead net-cam shot. To disallow the goal under Rule 69.6 would be purely academic at this point had the referee been focused more on the action taking place at the front of the net as opposed to the puck. Ideally, the whistle (or intent to blow the whistle) should have been exercised once Justin Williams began pushing Alex Stalock with his stick, if not before! Jake, video review can only be utilized in eight specific situations as listed in Rule 38.4. At the present time interference on the goalkeeper is not one of them. I have continually stated that referees must have the ability to review their initial decision whenever contact with the goalkeeper is in question. This should be initiated by the officials on the ice, the video goal judge or through a coachs challenge. However the review is initiated, I strongly recommend that a referee(s) makes the final call after personally reviewing the play in question on a monitor in the timekeepers box. Look for expanded use of video review in some form next season. We can only hope they get it right. Jonas Valanciunas Jersey . -- Phil Mickelson came to the St. C.J. Miles Jersey .com) - Whew!

#106 langouba » 20.07.2018, 03:24

Speed was on full display for all CFL fans to enjoy in Week 2 of the 2014 season. What had me thinking about this was the 108-yard interception return by newcomer Antwaun Molden. Truth be known, it was his first interception in his first start of his CFL career that peaked my interest. Initially, Molden was beat on a climb route by Brett Swain, the first year receiver for the Riders. Thats when we were introduced to Antwuans explosiveness and speed. He got on his horse and tracked down Swain to make a spectacular interception. Without his make-up speed, Saskatchewans offence is in the endzone, and at that time of the game, Moldens show of speed could very well have changed the complexion of the contest. Later on, with the Riders offense on the move, Molden was at it again. This time, he broke on a ball that Darian Durant should have never thrown, and this is coming from a guy who threw 211 picks, so I should know. Cant fault Durant, that happens. In this case, it was more about great anticipation and break on the ball timed perfectly. Then it was off to the races with Durant trying his best to maintain his angle, eventually making the speedy linebacker to ever so slightly alter his course to the endzone. Talk about changing the complexion of a game; Moldens incredible performance was a 14-point swing at the very least. I guess former CFL receiver Jason Armstead was right when he had tattooed SPEED on one calf and KILLS on the other. Molden was not the only player on the weekend displaying the ability to run fast. We saw a glimpse of what RB/REC Anthony Coombs brings to the table; raw-fluid speed. Im extremely disappointed to hear that Andre Durie is out with a broken collarbone for 6-8 weeks, but this Coombs kid is going to be fun to watch in his absence! Chad Owens was doing his thing whenever he touched the ball for the Argonauts. He is not only loaded with speed but tremendous quickness to boot; so dangerous and difficult to contend with. He put up phenomenal numbers that others only dream about but with Owens, its become the norm. Theres nothing normal about it, its special to be able to watch this guy play the sport of football. I enjoy everything about this guys approach, as should all CFL fans, young and old! The young ones can aspire to be like Chad and the older ones, like myself, can only dream about it. Taj Smith, the speedy wide receiver for Saskatchewan, got in behind the Argo defence for a touchdown with his speed, and was quickly tracked down by Molden, who showed his wheels once again. He walked down Smith and showcased what kind of speed he brings to the table. Now I know Smith will probably say he was shutting it down before he reached the endzone and thats why Molden walked him. I say to that, never let up and it wont appear that way and he was walking the speedy receiver down anyway. Friday Night Football made its 2014 debut this past Friday, and Gord Miller and myself witnessed speed by last years defensive player of the year, Chip Cox, on one of the coolest plays you will ever see. Scott Paxson, a second-year player from Penn State, picked off Kevin Glenn and instinctively optioned the ball over to No. 11 himself and it was a walk-in touchdown by one of the fastest in the league. Heads-up play, filled with athleticism from both defenders. When you were watching the RedBlacks take on the Bombers, I know yall had to see the speed of what could be the fastest player in the CFL, Chevon Walker. Although he did not break off a long one, you still witnessed brilliant speed on his 29-yarder. On the same play, watch the man responsible for Walker and you will see one of the most promising players in the CFL in Ian Wild. The second year linebacker has speed himself as he had to go fetch Walker and help usher him out of bounds in a hurry. Of course, Wild had fear as a motivator because Walker had leveraged him out of the backfield and like I said, Wild was in a trail position, but not for long. I know about fear and running fast. I ran for 5,031 yards in my time and most of those yards, I was running scared because at least one, maybe two or three big-bad dudes with bad intentions were coming and coming fast. Fear will make you run really fast and for me, speed varied depending on who was chasing me! Sometimes I was my 4.57 self and other times I was 4.1, like Raghib "Rocket" Ismail, who was the fastest of them all... or was that Marcus Grant or Waddell Smith??? So all this talk about speed, the speed that we witness, week in and week out in the CFL, where did you see speed this past week in the CFL? Whos the fastest today and whos the fastest of all time?

Costa Rica followed up its wins over Uruguay and Italy by holding England to a dour 0-0 draw on Tuesday, enough to finish first in Group D.NEW YORK -- If Commissioner Roger Goodell gets his way, change could be coming to the NFL. Adding playoff teams. Monitoring instant replay from league headquarters. Possibly creating a set of guidelines to prevent locker-room bullying. Short on details or precise timetables, and acknowledging hell need approval from team owners for action, Goodell painted the picture of an ever-evolving league during his annual pre-Super Bowl news conference, held Friday in a theatre in midtown Manhattan. Goodell said "theres a lot of benefits" to increasing the post-season field from 12 to 14 clubs. "We think we can make the league more competitive. We think we can make the matchups more competitive toward the end of the season. There will be more excitement, more memorable moments for our fans. And thats something that attracts us," Goodell said. "We think we can do it properly from a competitive standpoint. So this will continue to get very serious consideration by the competition committee." That sort of proposal would require "Yes" votes from 24 of the 32 owners. At least one who attended Goodells speech, Jeffrey Lurie of the Philadelphia Eagles, sounded in favour of the idea, with a couple of caveats: He wouldnt want to let too many teams into the post-season, and hed like to hear more about scheduling. "We dont want to become like some other sports, where its too easy to make the playoffs," Lurie said. "Adding one team would not put us in a counterproductive situation. But when you would play the games, I think, is very important, so that the following games, you have virtually an equal time to prepare." Making a not-so-subtle reference to mistakes by game officials this season, Goodell said that committee also will make recommendations to the 32 owners about having replays from all games overseen by the league office. Major League Baseball recently joined the NHL as sports that have centralized replay systems. "We think theres plenty of room for us to improve the game of football, and officiating in particular. What we all want is consistency and fairness in our officiating," Goodell said. "I do believe there is a possibility that some version of that will occur -- where our office can at least be involved with the decision. It may not make the decision," he added, "but at least can provide some input that would be helpful to the officials on the field to make sure theyre seeing every angle." Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney said he needs more information before deciding whether hed be in favour. "Our situation is different than hockey. But I think we should look at everything," Rooney said. "Maybe we want to expand the numbeer of incidents that you look at.dddddddddddd. A lot of times theyll say, Thats not reviewable. Look into that, for example." New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft likes the suggestion. "Games should be standardized and have the same people making the calls," Kraft said. "I dont want to ever lose a game based on poor interpretation of rules by (different) officials." Another focal point, according to Goodell, will be preventing the kind of alleged bullying that rocked the Miami Dolphins this season. "Ive already begun discussions with outside parties. Ive discussed it with the union, Ive also met with several groups of players, individually and collectively, to talk about the circumstances. What needs to be done?" Goodell said. "Some of it will be education. Some of it possibly could be policy change." Speaking two days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks play in East Rutherford, N.J., Goodell did not respond directly to questions whether other cold-weather cities with outdoor stadiums could host NFL championship games. During his opening remarks, Goodell said: "One unique aspect about the focus for this years Super Bowl has been on the weather. Of course, we cannot control the weather. I told you we were going to embrace the weather. Here we go." And with that, flakes of fake snow fell from the ceiling above the stage, drawing laughter. Among other topics addressed by Goodell: --The NFL is working to convince a federal judge in Philadelphia that the tentative $765 million settlement reached with former players who sued the league about concussions "can provide the kind of benefits that we intended, and were confident that well get there"; --The difficulty in selling out wild-card playoff games resulted from "mistakes that were made by us, the NFL, and our clubs," and not fans fault, and that improving stadium safety "is a critical component"; --The NFL is "not actively considering" allowing players to use marijuana for medical reasons, but "thats something we would never take off the table, if it can benefit our players"; --Selling out all three of next seasons games in London is "just another indication that the more we give fans in the U.K. of NFL football, the more they want" and that the possibility of placing a franchise in that country is closer to reality than a year ago; --He deflected a question about whether hed call a Native American a "Redskin" face-to-face, saying, "Lets not forget this is the name of a football team." ------ AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner and Sports Writers Rachel Cohen, Tim Booth and Tom Canavan contributed to this report.

swept the two-game season games from Carolina
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Having lost three straight, the Calgary Flames were looking for something positive when they visited the Carolina Hurricanes. Karri Ramo delivered just what they needed. Ramo made 22 saves in his first NHL shutout, and Mikael Backlund and Sean Monahan provided the offence in the Flames 2-0 win over the Hurricanes on Monday night The Flames snapped their skid and handed the Hurricanes their second straight shutout defeat. "It was probably our best team effort of the season," Calgary coach Bob Hartley said. "We had quite a good first period, and I felt we pressured them and gained the momentum. Carolina came hard at us, and we did a great job." Carolinas offence has been shut down for two games following a season-best, five-game winning streak. The Hurricanes failed to match Calgarys intensity at the start, and were shut out for the fourth time this season. "We spent too much time in our own end," defenceman Brett Bellemore said. "We didnt get off to a good start and they kind of got a lucky bounce off a skate or something (on their goal)." The Hurricanes now have a long wait before they host Florida on Saturday. "We didnt have that extra jump," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "Its disappointing. We have four days ahead of us to sit on it. When you play teams like Calgary, its going to be a game in the trenches. "They got the lead, and once they did, they were able to sit back a little bit and defend." Backland scored his seventh goal of the season for the Flames, who notched their second power-play tally in 26 chances. Backland gathered the puck in front after it bounced off the skate of Hurricanes forward Radek Dvorak. "It was nice to score first," Backlund said. "Its easier to play with some energy when you score than have to chase all the time like weve been doing lately." Monahan scored his 13th goal midway through the third period to add some insurance. He scored into an open net after goalie Anton Khudobin was unable to get back across the crease from the far post. Ramo improved to 8-8-3 as the Flames swept the two-game season games from Carolina. It was Calgarys first shutout in 117 games. "Its good that its out of the way," Ramo said. "Its nice to finish one without a goal. Obviously, everyone thinks about it and knows the situation but you just have to focus and play normally." Khudobin, who lost his second straight, did some of his best work in the first period when the Flames carried the play and held a 14-5 shots advantage. Khudobin made 27 saves overall. Carolina captain Eric Staal returned to the lineup after missing three games because of a lower body injury. NOTES: Calgary is 11-3-3 in games in which it scores a power-play goal. The Flames went 1 for 3. ... Carolina activated C Jiri Tlusty from the injured list, and he was in the lineup for the time since Dec. 23, before he was sidelined because of an appendectomy. ... The Flames have won three straight and four of five against Carolina. ... Calgary RW Kevin Westgarth returned to face his old team for the first time since being traded by Carolina on Dec. 30.

The Chiefs have agreed to a three-year Chase Edmonds Color Rush Jersey , $7.5 million contract with longtime punter Dustin Colquitt on Thursday, a deal that could ensure he plays the rest of his career in Kansas City.

His representatives at CAA said the deal could be worth up to $9 million with incentives.

Colquitt, who turns 36 in May, was a third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2005 http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-sam-darnold-jersey , and has proceeded to have one of the best punting careers in franchise history. He’s appeared in all but two games over the past 13 seasons, earning Pro Bowl appearances in 2012 and 2016.

The Chiefs expected to get a deal with Colquitt done soon after free agency began, and general manager Brett Veach alluded to it happening ”soon” when he addressed reporters Wednesday.

Colquitt’s father, Craig Josh Rosen Color Rush Jersey , and uncle, were also professional punters, and his brother Britton spent last season with the Browns after six seasons with the Broncos.

That lineage has earned them the label, ”The first family of fourth down.”

The Minnesota Wild have hired Tom Kurvers as assistant general manager.

The Wild announced Kurvers’ hiring on Tuesday. He joins the team after spending the last 10 seasons with the Tampa Bay Lightning http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-richard-rodgers-jersey , where he was senior adviser to Tampa Bay’s general manager the last seven years.

Before joining the Lightning, Kurvers spent 11 seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes, including three as director of player personnel.

The former University of Minnesota Duluth defenseman won the 1986 Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens.

He totaled 421 points (93-328) and 350 penalty minutes in 659 career NHL games during 11 seasons with Montreal, Buffalo http://www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dj-chark-jersey , New Jersey, Toronto, Vancouver, the New York Islanders and Anaheim. He was selected by the Canadiens in the seventh round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft.

Through their creative utilization of angles and materials, these types of brands are more likely to disagree whenever we look at the investment value of Ulysse Nardin and Audemars Piguet.

Gerald Genta Gamble

We discovered from Audemars Piguet's extensively researched history that their Gerald Genta was rewarded nearly 50 years ago and produced the primary products of Royal Maple, which has become the most famous sport in the industry. One of the timepieces. GREUBEL FORSEY watches replica price

Most of their current items mimic this design, however are some unusual facts which their best-selling works cannot get rid of the avant-garde form that people associate with the brand today.

Ulysse Nardin's investment decision value - freak

Although AP owns Regal Oak, Freak plays an essential role in the investment associated with Ulysse Nardin. This is a function that defines the modern period of the brand. It seems that the history associated with Ulysse Nardin seems to have already been forgotten, perhaps because of their revolutionary acceptance of modern materials.


Long-term reputation

Although the brand is prepared to get involved in silicon, they are not the actual Harry who recently made an appearance in Johnny, which may boost the investment value of Alexis Nadine. Breitling AVENGER watches replica

The United Nations has been generating continuously since 1846 as well as was known for producing ultra-complex mechanical watches during the hard decade of the 1980s. These people even entered the Guinness Book of World Data in 1989, creating the planet's most powerful watch (Astrolabium Galileo Galilei has 21 various functions in its name).

The brand has a contemporary and classic loyal consumer, more than a century of continuous creation, and the ability to make its very own movement (Audemars Piguet offers 78% of Audemars Piguet Renaud and Papi) There is absolutely no difference between the two. best RICHARD MILLE RM 027 watches replica

A lovely fact is that will AP has been a family company since its inception, and in 2014, Kly Group acquired Ulysse Nardin. However , this is not something which buyers think is just a great story (although ownership) balance and internal manufacturing point out a solid foundation that should permit any potential buyer to ensure of repairs in one time.

It depends upon the fact that one of the two incontrovertible pioneers hit the precious metal with their brand-defined work, as the other hit the container.

Subjectivity regarding silicon

This may be the rigorous assessment of Fanatic and its continued legacy, however that Freak is a view that lives or passes away from your perception of si (or silicon we state in the US). The new materials is great - I'm really a big fan of innovative technology - but when this resonates with the crowd, these people miss it. http://www.cheapsalewatch.com

Luxury the making of watch is an unnecessary form of artwork. It proves that people possess mastery of materials. The actual technology is interesting; si has excellent tribological attributes; improving accuracy is a good feature, but these won't make your spirit soar.

Quarterbacks will rule the NFL’s offseason.

#110 liny195 » 03.12.2018, 09:48

Beginning with Alex Smith going to Washington when the league’s new year starts next month and Jimmy Garoppolo agreeing to a record-breaking deal with San Francisco on Thursday http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-baker-mayfield-jersey , several quarterbacks will find new riches and many teams will land new QBs in 2018.

Tom Brady may have been denied another championship but not his coordinator, and some believe Josh McDaniels’ sudden change of heart this week in spurning the Indianapolis Colts was related to doubts about Andrew Luck’s health.

Either way, McDaniels is staying in New England to help the Patriots bounce back from their 41-33 loss to Philadelphia in Super Bowl 52 .

The Eagles aren’t just celebrating their first championship since 1960, but also an abundance of talent at the position in franchise QB Carson Wentz and Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

Should Wentz’s recovery from knee surgery go well, the Eagles will have a huge bargaining chip to help restock their roster.

Wentz’s injury rehab will be closely watched this offseason, just like Aaron Rodgers ` repaired collarbone in Green Bay and DeShaun Watson `s torn ACL in Houston.

Those teams figure to be contenders for Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta if their quarterbacks are healthy. A dozen other teams will either jockey for their next star or dole out big bucks to keep the one they have.

Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees lead an exceptionally large group of veteran quarterbacks lined up for big paydays and possibly new opportunities that includes the Minnesota Vikings’ trio of Teddy Bridgewater, Case Keenum and Sam Bradford.

Garoppolo, Brady’s longtime backup, got a five-year contract from the 49ers that will pay him a reported $137.5 million to keep him off the free-agent market without forcing the team to use the one-year franchise tag.

NFL Network first reported the terms of the contract, which is worth $27.5 million per season to top the previous record set by Detroit’s Matthew Stafford last year by $500,000 per year – but presumably will soon be surpassed by Brees or Cousins.

San Francisco acquired Garoppolo from New England before the trade deadline for a 2018 second-round pick. He led the 49ers to five straight wins to end the season, pushing his record as a starter to 7-0.

Teams that miss out on one of the prized free agents can look to the draft, which features Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Lamar Jackson and Mason Rudolph.

The quarterback carousel began in the days before the Super Bowl when Kansas City agreed to trade Smith to the Redskins.

The deal, which cannot be finalized until March 14, spells the end of Cousins’ time in Washington and hands the Chiefs’ job to Patrick Mahomes III http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-denzel-ward-jersey , the 10th pick in last year’s draft out of Texas Tech.

So, Smith, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft, moves on to his third team just as he’s coming off the best season of his 13-year career.

”I think Washington is getting a phenomenal player, a great leader,” Rodgers said last week while discussing the league’s current quarterback commotion.

”Now you’ve got Kirk Cousins, what’s going to happen with him? You’ve got probably five guys that are going to get drafted in the first round, Jimmy Garoppolo and his situation.

”There’s a lot of moving pieces.”

In the not-too-distant future, Rodgers could find himself one of them.

Rodgers, 34, has two years left on his contract and if he stays healthy in 2018, he’ll be in line for a mega payday that could obliterate any of the deals that will be signed.

Rodgers told the AP last week that he wants to play well into his 40s and might have to finish his career in another team’s uniform as Brett Favre did.

”I think you have to be humble enough to realize if it could happen to Brett, it can happen to you,” Rodgers said.

Among the teams looking for an upgrade are the Denver Broncos, who haven’t been back to the playoffs since Peyton Manning retired a champion two years ago.

Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller said he trusts general manager John Elway to fix that in the next few weeks: ”We have a Hall of Fame quarterback running the show who’s going to get the right guy,” Miller said.

Miller has a tip for his GM, too.

”No disrespect to Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch, but I would love to play with Kirk Cousins,” Miller said. ”When Peyton came to Denver http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-williams-jersey , we just took off. Kirk’s an elite starter, too. I could roll with that.”

With eight trips to the Super Bowl and five rings, Brady is the gold standard of quarterbacks.

Yet, this time he was outdueled by Foles, who showed just how important it is for teams to also have depth at the position.

”To get in a shootout with that guy on the other team is probably not ideal for anyone – ever,” Eagles tight end Zach Ertz said. ”The guy is the best quarterback to ever play the game. That team is phenomenal. They are coached amazingly.”

Yet, the Patriots were beaten by a journeyman QB who contemplated retirement not long ago after he kept losing his starting job with his employers in perpetual search of a better option.

Foles turned into a flawless fill-in after Wentz got hurt in December, stepping in to deliver Philadelphia its first Super Bowl title.

Foles has one year left on his two-year deal, and his Super Bowl performance bumped his name up on the long list of coveted quarterbacks.

”He’s amazing,” Ertz said. ”The past three weeks he’s been playing out


UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: WRs Jordan Matthews, Deonte Thompson, Brandon Tate, and Jeremy Butler; CBs E.J. Gaines, Leonard Johnson, and Shareece Wright; LBs Preston Brown and Ramon Humber; DTs Kyle Williams and Cedric Thornton; Ss Colt Anderson and Shamarko Thomas; RBs Travaris Cadet and Taiwan Jones; FB Mike Tolbert; OT Seantrel Henderson; QB Joe Webb.


NEEDS: Quarterback moved to the top of the list after Buffalo traded three-year starter Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a third-round pick. The deal leaves Nathan Peterman – a fifth-round draft pick last year – as the only quarterback on the roster. Aside from free agency, the Bills are anticipated to select a quarterback in the draft. The defensive front seven could be in store for major overhaul with Williams yet to determine whether he’ll retire, starters Brown and Humber eligible for free agency. Unanticipated hole to fill is center after Eric Woods was diagnosed with career-ending neck injury in January. Bills already addressed needs by signing nine-year veteran CB Vontae Davis and running back Chris Ivory, who is expected to take over as LeSean McCoy’s primary backup.

AVAILABLE SALARY CAP SPACE (approximately): $30 million.

NEW YORK — Omaha’s loss Saturday night will be a big win for anyone who likes watching two of the best pitchers in baseball face off against one another.

Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to make a surprising return to the major league rotation Saturday night http://www.patriotsauthorizedshop.com/authentic-jason-mccourty-jersey , when the Dodgers visit the New York Mets in the middle game of a three-game series at Citi Field.

The Dodgers won the opener 5-2 on Friday night when Cody Bellinger’s sixth-inning grand slam snapped a scoreless pitcher’s duel between Los Angeles left-hander Alex Wood and Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler.

There will likely be more zeroes on the board Saturday when Kershaw (1-4, 2.76 ERA) may not even be the best pitcher to take the Citi Field mound. The Hall of Fame-bound southpaw, who hasn’t pitched this month because of a lower back strain, will be opposed by the hottest pitcher in baseball, Mets ace Jacob deGrom (5-2, 1.51 ERA).

The Mets finally provided deGrom some run support in his most recent start on Monday when he picked up a long-awaited win after allowing two runs (one earned) in eight innings of a 12-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

DeGrom lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.51 in the win. Since 2000, only Randy Johnson (1.47 ERA in 2000) has produced a lower ERA through 15 starts.

DeGrom has a 0.90 ERA in his last 11 starts, during which he has only gone 3-2 while the Mets have gone 3-8. New York scored 16 runs while deGrom was on the mound in his 10 starts before Monday.

“I watched (Corey) Kluber have about a 1.40 ERA for like 12 or 13 starts at the end of one season to win a Cy Young,” said Mets manager Mickey Callaway, who was the pitching coach for the Cleveland Indians when Kluber locked up the American League Cy Young Award by posting a 1.42 ERA in his final 12 starts last season.

“But this is pretty special. You don’t see this often.”

Nor do matchups like Kershaw-deGrom happen very often. The clash Saturday night will mark their first regular-season matchup and the second time they’ve opposed one another.

DeGrom picked up the win in the decisive Game 5 of the 2015 National League Division Series when he tossed seven scoreless innings in the Mets’ 3-1 win over the Dodgers and Kershaw, who pitched on three days’ rest and took the loss after giving up all three runs in 6 2/3 innings.

Kershaw was originally scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Oklahoma City against Omaha, but with an uncertain weather forecast in Nebraska, the Dodgers decided to take their chances by having him pitch for the big league team in New York, where scattered thunderstorms are expected.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hinted the famously competitive Kershaw did his share of talking his way out of the rehab start.

“He did play a little weatherman, so with weather.com and Clayton, we were pretty abreast with the weather in Omaha Milan Lucic Jersey Kids ,” Roberts said with a grin Friday afternoon.

Roberts said the Dodgers will proceed carefully with Kershaw, who has made as many trips to the disabled list as to a big league mound since May. Kershaw was sidelined from May 2 through May 30 because of biceps tendinitis.

Kershaw was activated May 31, when he didn’t factor into the decision after pitching through a tight back while allowing one run in five innings of the Dodgers’ 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Los Angeles placed Kershaw back on the disabled list the next day.

“We don’t know how much he’s going to pitch,” Roberts said. “I don’t want to put a limit on him. Obviously, there is a limitation with Clayton, and I’ll make that decision.”

Both pitchers will have a unique, opponent-specific streak on the line Saturday

DeGrom is 0-3 with a 3.26 ERA in six career regular-season starts against the Dodgers. He has beaten every other team he has faced more than once.

Kershaw is 8-0 with a 1.84 ERA in 12 regular-season starts against the Mets. He is undefeated against eight other teams but has beaten only one of those squads, the Atlanta Braves, more than twice.

After two games filled flaring tempers and alleged beanballs, the Giants and Marlins finally learned to play nice together in their season series finale.

Just the way San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy expected – or at least hoped.

Brandon Belt had three hits, Gorkys Hernandez added a two-run single during a five-run sixth inning and the Giants beat the Marlins 6-5 on Wednesday.

”I didn’t think it would continue,” Bochy said. ”You’re going to have games like that and tempers are going to flare. Boys will be boys, as they say, but it’s back to baseball.”

In comparison to the games Monday and Tuesday when both teams were chippy, Wednesday’s game was tame.

There were more errors than hit batters and the only damage was self-inflicted when Giants leadoff hitter Alen Hanson fouled a ball off his left knee in the first inning.

What fireworks there were came primarily in the sixth when San Francisco chased Miami starter Jose Urena (2-9).

Kelby Tomlinson walked and took second on Joe Panik’s single. After Brandon Belt doubled in Tomlinson, Pablo Sandoval was intentionally walked and Nick Hundley struck out.

Panik scored the go-ahead run when Mac Williamson hit a sharp grounder to third baseman Miguel Rojas with one out. Rojas made a diving stop but second baseman Starlin Castro had to stretch for the throw and was unable to make the relay to first.

Hernandez capped the inning with a two-run single after a 14-pitch at-bat against Urena.

”He really grinded out that at-bat Oscar Klefbom Jersey ,” Bochy said. ”Just came through with a huge hit there and gave us a cushion.”

Derek Holland (5-7) had seven strikeouts and allowed three runs over six innings in his first start against the Marlins since 2011. He walked two and left after giving up back-to-back hits opening the seventh.

”(Catcher Nick Hundley) and I did a great job establishing what we needed to, getting ahead of hitters,” Holland said. ”I know the line says I gave up three runs but at the end of the day these guys did a good job of keeping the momentum on our side.”

The Giants’ left-hander said he changed his stance on the mound, shifting from one side of the rubber to other.

”Just wanted to do something different, that’s all,” Holland said.

The Marlins scored twice in the ninth off Sam Dyson. Reyes Moronta struck out JB Shuck for his first career save.

Castro drove in a pair of runs and Brian Anderson had three hits for Miami, extending his on-base streak to a career-high 18 games.

The Marlins hit into three double plays, including when Urena was doubled up at first after mistakenly heading for third on Castro’s fly ball to center with no outs in the third.

”I’ve never seen a guy be the leadoff hitter and then lose count of the outs,” Miami manager Don Mattingly said. ”He was hustling though. We had some other chances too.”


”That’s cute. I remember my first 14-pitch at-bat.” – Belt, who set a major league record with a 21-pitch at-bat against the Angels on April 22, talking about Hernandez’s long at-bat in the sixth.


Marlins: Outfielder Garrett Cooper (wrist) was sent to Triple-A New Orleans to begin a rehab assignment.

Giants: Hanson had to be helped off the field and was diagnosed with a knee contusion after undergoing X-rays. … Buster Posey was given the day off. … RHP Jeff Samardzija (shoulder tightness) makes his second rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.


Marlins: Following a day off Thursday, Miami heads to Colorado to begin a three-game series. LHP Wei-Yin Chen (2-3, 5.91 ERA) pitches the opener seeking his second win against the Rockies this season.

Giants: LHP Madison Bumgarner (0-2, 4.67) faces San Diego on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. Bumgarner has lost four straight to the Padres.

It’s been a “Roody-Poo” filled week It was somber 49ers locker room

#112 liny195 » 10.12.2018, 05:51

in Kansas City with the injury of Jimmy Garoppolo looming over it as well as the team’s second loss. Leave it to Reuben Foster to lighten up the mood a little when he spoke about his confidence in quarterback C.J. Beathard who would be taking over as the leader of the offense. Even Dwayne Johnson 49ers Adrian Colbert Jersey , “The Rock,” took notice and replied: Foster was obviously pretty excited that The Rock reached out to him: It even became the Esurance quote of the week: George Kittle even used the quote as a caption for his Instagram post: Along with Kittle and Foster, Earl Mitchell and Garry Gilliam are both wrestling fans. Gilliam even has the Universal title belt from Monday Night Raw on display in his locker. Mitchell spent some time during the offseason at the WWE training facility learning how to be a talent scout, watching interviews, and observing auditions. Mitchell said it’s something that he might be interested in pursuing once his football career comes to an end. While there may only be a few wrestling fans on the team Cheap Mike McGlinchey Jersey , it’s a sure things that there are quite a few fans of The Rock. Maybe they can lure him out to Levi’s for an appearance, it would be a huge success!Antone Exum downgraded to questionable The San Francisco 49ers secondary is one of the more banged up units on the team, and things got a bit more concerning. The 49ers announced that safety Antone Exum has been downgraded to questionable status for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to his quadracep injury. This injury is new, as it didn’t show up on Wednesday’s practice report. If Exum is unable to play, that would leave Tyvis Powell as his backup and Jimmie Ward possibly an option as well given the latter’s familiarity with the system. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was complimentary of Exum on Friday and his potential start against the Chargers. Both safeties Adrian Colbert (hip) and Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday and are dealing with injury issues of their own Cheap Fred Warner Jersey , so this does not help the unit which is almost just looking for bodies.For now the listing may just be a precaution, but we’ll find out more in the Sunday morning on what’s really going on.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has started his
career as a starter better than anyone could have expected Youth Dustin Hopkins Jersey , throwing more touchdown passes in the first two games of a season (10) than any other player ever has in the history of the league, and also twice being named the AFC offensive player of the week. His coach knows that it won’t continue to be as easy as it’s been, as defensive coordinators get more and more Mahomes film — and, in turn, Mahomes faces the challenge of getting his game to a higher level.鈥淭hat鈥檚 the challenge,” Reid told reporters earlier this week. “As they study him Rookie Nick Mullens Jersey , then he鈥檒l rise up and do that. Is there going to be a hiccup here or there? Yes. There will be learning experiences going on here. Everything has not been roses up to this point. It looks like it, but that has not been the case. He has a ton of things to work on. As he goes on, there are a lot of great defensive minds in this league and they will present it to him. One advantage I think he had was he was able to work against [Chiefs defensive coordinator] Bob [Sutton] at training camp and had a lot of things thrown at him. Everyone has their flavor and you have to be able to answer it. If you don鈥檛, you have a problem.鈥漅eid knows that “different wrinkles” will indeed be coming. He can expect them on Sunday from the 49ers, even if the wrinkles consist of defensive players not making mistakes, which 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman believes the Steelers did in Week Two. “There were a lot of busts in the Pittsburgh game Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey ,” Sherman told reporters on Thursday, three days before his team faces the Chiefs in what will be Mahomes’ first career home start. “A lot of guys out of position. It looked like they just tried to do too much. They had a bunch of checks. Any time you try to scheme up for every single play you’re going to get, it’s going to be tough. I think they made it way too complicated. . . . You know, [Mahomes] made great plays and great throws but there were a lot of guys running scot-free, buck naked, wide open. You’ve got to play more sound than that.”Of course Authentic George Kittle Jersey , maybe that was a result of the looks the Chiefs were giving them and/or Mahomes reacting to coverages before the snap, allowing him to anticipate where the open man would be. Whatever the explanation, Sunday’s game between San Francisco and Kansas City surely will leave someone to explain why the Chiefs were able to continue their torrid start offensively, or why they weren’t. So Kyle Shanahan said in his press conference today he needed closers. Since I was having a slow day at work, my next thought was the epic scene from Glengarry Glen Ross. I can see Shanahan walking into the coaches meeting and Saleh walking over to get a cup of coffee and Shanahan saying the epic line: “Put that coffee DOWN. Coffee is for closers only.” If anyone else had that scene playing after hearing Shanahan’s presser, let me know so I’m not crazy.

Where’s the D? It’s almost like last Sunday was a nightmare
. A bad dream we all had together. It wasn’t. This piece was originally on the 49ers defensive line as a unit Womens Tress Way Jersey , but after watching the film there was more than meets the eye. First thing I recognized is the game planning. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid knew our front was stout. So far this year our rush defense is only allowing 3.7 yards per rush. On the back end however our pass defense is ranked 27th according to CBSSports.com. So Reid’s game plan relied on confusion, alignment mismatches, and quick rhythm passes. Patrick Mahomes took nearly every snap in shotgun. This prevented the defensive line from getting any direct pressure on him. They lined up in formations with multiple receivers which kept our base defense off the field. Our nickel and dime line up is smaller, built to cover, and they got beat at the point of attack whenever Kansas City did decide to run.They didn’t run much. Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 44 yards and averaged only 2.4 yards per carry. Kansas City’s plan was to throw the ball. They called 38 passes and completed them to 9 different receivers. They had 11 players with at least one target. KC’s other big weapon Tyreek Hill was held in check, and was mostly deployed as a decoy. He only had two catches for 51 yards, and one of those two was 42 yards. Second thing to take into account was all the new faces on defense. Reuben Foster was making his first start this season. The last time Malcolm Smith played in a regular season game, he was wearing silver and black. Antone Exum Jr. was recently cut and resigned within the same week. He was also making his first start at strong safety. Jimmie Ward replaced Akhello Witherspoon at corner, and Fred Warner was only making his third start in the NFL. The Chiefs took full advantage of all these new parts. They shifted, went in motion, faked, and aligned all over the place. It got to a point in the 2nd quarter where even the defensive linemen were literally taking one step, and standing up trying to see what was happening in the backfield as players ran by them. Foster and Smith were often lost. Then there was the tackling. The plays we will be looking at cover in general some of the concepts and alignments that hindered the defense. It will be interesting to see how we adjust against another high powered offense this Sunday in LA against the Chargers. Andy Reid and his staff threw the proverbial kitchen sink at our defense. Let’s take a look at the first play. A triple motion, yes triple motion fake jet sweep pass. KC lines up basically strong right (bottom of the field) and motions one by one to the opposite side of the field. At the snap we get the jet sweep action from Tyreek Hill, while the receivers at the top of the screen flood the zone coverage. Hill is left wide open in the flat. Watch Reuben Foster (first yellow circle) on this play, his head is spinning. Warner still has a shot at a tackle but he misses and Hill scurries for a first down.Another creative play design aimed at attacking our defenses ability to run. Here’s an RPO where Mahomes is reading the linebackers at the snap instead of a defensive end/lineman. As the linebackers, Warner and Foster, over-commit to the run, he pulls the ball, and delivers a quick slant that’s wide open. If the linebackers stay home Youth Weston Richburg Jersey , the outside run is left open. It’s a lose-lose situation for defenses. Especially when it’s executed correctly.We also struggled with screen passes, another play designed to take advantage of an aggressive defense. The next two we’re also perfect timed. The first screen pass shows wrinkles on wrinkles. We start with a fullback screen. Yes, the fullback. Anthony Sherman has one other catch this year and it was during the Chiefs first game this season. He only had six catches all last season, but he was employed in this game. Initially, Tyreek Hill lines up in the backfield. Once Hill motions to the outside the defense shifts left (bottom of the field, which now has two receivers and a tight end. Already before the snap, I highlighted with the box a huge open area. Once the play begins the fullback sells the block, then catches the screen pass. He rumbles to the goal line. From the end zone angle there’s almost no 49ers in the shot when he catches the ball.For the second screen pass clip let’s just watch Malcolm Smith and Reuben Foster (yellow circles) sort of blitz and sort of play coverage all at the same time. Not really sure who was supposed to cover the back. Foster blitzes at the snap, but then pulls up and tries to make a play on the ball. He either blew his coverage and tried to get back, or he was supposed to blitz but recognized the screen late and tried to make an adjustment. I have no idea what Smith is doing — initially he’s in great position to cover the running back, and the screen pass, but at the last second he runs toward the quarterback and takes himself out of the play.I mentioned above the multiple receiver formations. These next few clips show how it left us at a disadvantage in the run game. On the Chiefs first TD, Hunt walked into the end zone almost untouched and here’s why. The Chiefs line up in a three wide set. I have a still shot displayed before the clip moves to the end zone angle. At the start of the end zone angle it’s almost instantly obvious we’re outmatched on the line if they run. It’s easy money. At the snap, Mahomes begins the zone read action, which causes Malcolm Smith to hesitate just a second. Our defensive end gets turned out, while the guard crashes the nose tackle down the line. The hole is huge.Here’s another run where Kareem Hunt is barely touched until he’s yards down the field. In similar fashion the formation calls for three wide receivers which brings in our nickel. At the snap Hunt gets the ball, Solomon Thomas gets turned outside by the tackle. Cassius Marsh tries to crash down but the guard chin checks him and he falls to his knees. This was Hunt’s longest run of the game, and it came at a critical time in the fourth quarter when KC was trying to run out the clock.There were several plays where our defensive line actually won their match up, but one of two things happened. In Deforest Buckner’s case, he was often doubled http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/pierre-garcon-jersey-authentic , or chipped by the back. As you can see below Buckner totally obliterates this offensive lineman, but the center is in perfect position to help out, so he never reaches the QB.The second thing that happened when our defensive lineman won, was missed tackles. They simply whiffed on the play. For example in the clip below Arik Armstead works Travis Kelce, but then proceeds to miss the tackle for loss. This leads to a long gain for the Chiefs.The first half was abysmal. It was 35-7 when the teams hit the locker room. I do want to give the staff credit for making adjustments and keeping the players motivated. I think an unsung piece that had more impact than people might've thought was the absence of Jaquiski Tartt. He’s physical, plays good enough in coverage, but also keeps the defense in position to win. I’m glad they left the zone coverage in the locker room and went with more man to man. They gave D.J. Reed more time, he seems to be even faster than Adrian Colbert, and played pretty well. We held the Chiefs to only three points the rest of the game. Some of it was Andy Reid and staff going more vanilla, but the defense still made some great plays to get the offense the ball. Against the Chargers, we face another offense with multiple offensive weapons. I’m hoping to see better tackling from the defense. The story on everyone’s hearts and minds will be the offense and C.J. Beathard. But if the defense gives up 35 points, it doesn’t matter if Beathard and the offense score 30 points. Go Niners. Another miscommunication almost led to another game-altering interception for Jimmy Garoppolo.Only this time, the San Francisco 49ers got bailed out by a flag and held on to beat the Detroit Lions.Garoppolo threw two touchdown passes and caught a break when a defensive holding call negated a late interception as the 49ers held on to beat the Lions 30-27 on Sunday."Very happy," Garoppolo said of his emotions after realizing a penalty wiped out his mistake. "I didn't see what happened on that with the flag and everything but very happy."The big play came after Detroit (0-2) had cut San Francisco's 30-13 lead to three points thanks to two fourth-quarter touchdown passes by Matthew Stafford. Then with the 49ers (1-1) facing a third-and-2 near midfield, Garoppolo threw a quick out to Matt Breida. Tracy Walker stepped in front and intercepted the pass, returning it to the San Francisco 7.But Quandre Diggs was called for holding George Kittle on the other side of the field, giving the 49ers a reprieve."I didn't see it, but it doesn't matter," Detroit coach Matt Patricia said. "That's the way the game is being called all the way across the board. We just can't do it, make plays and then the penalties."Last week a wrong pattern run by Kendrick Bourne led to a pick-six by Garoppolo Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , who threw three interceptions in a 24-16 loss at Minnesota that gave him his first loss after winning his first seven career starts.Garoppolo threw a 4-yard TD pass to Bourne in the second quarter Sunday and an 11-yarder to Garrett Celek in the third to hand Patricia, his old friend from their New England days, a second straight loss to begin his tenure as coach of the Lions. Garoppolo finished 18 for 26 for 206 yards, but was sacked six times.Breida did much of the rest by rushing for 138 yards and breaking the game open with a 66-yard touchdown run in the third quarter with help from impressive downfield blocking by receiver Pierre Garcon. It was the longest run for San Francisco since Colin Kaepernick scored on a 90-yard run against the Chargers on Dec. 20, 2014."It's like backyard football," Breida said. "You see someone break a long run, see someone out there running, you have to block someone. That's what he did."Stafford was much sharper than he was last week for the Lions when he threw four interceptions. He went 34 for 53 for 347 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions but it wasn't enough.He threw TD passes in the fourth quarter to Marvin Jones Jr. and Michael Roberts but was unable to lead another scoring drive after taking over at the 16 with 1:08 to play. He threw an incomplete pass to Theo Riddick on fourth-and-2 from his 39 with 14 seconds left, ending the comeback attempt."We just have to make a few more plays, whether it be earlier in the game or later," Stafford said. "There's a million plays throughout the game we can clean up and be better, and it starts with me."EJECTIONDetroit running back LeGarrette Blount was ejected in the third quarter. Blount took exception to Elijah Lee pushing Stafford as he stepped out of bounds. Blount was standing on the sideline right in front of the play and went on the field and pushed Lee. Blount was assessed a personal foul and ejected.THIRD-QUARTER WOESThe Lions once again struggled coming out of halftime. Detroit was outscored 31-7 in the third quarter in a loss to the Jets last week and then 14-3 by the 49ers in this game.RECORD-SETTINGThe 49ers had three drives stall after getting inside the red zone in part because Detroit sacked Garoppolo three times on plays that started inside the 20. That led to three field goals for Robbie Gould, giving him 29 straight makes, two more than Phil Dawson's franchise record set in 2013.GOOD RETURNSRookie D.J. Reed started the second half with a long kickoff return that initially appeared to go for a touchdown. But he was called for a facemask penalty while giving a stiff arm and was only credited with a 90-yard return, the longest for the Niners since Kyle Williams had a 94-yarder in 2012. San Francisco still managed to get a TD with a 26-yard drive capped by Garoppolo's pass to Celek.INJURIESLions CB Darius Slay left with a concussion in the third quarter. ... 49ers S Jaquiski Tartt left in the second half with a shoulder injury.ANTHEMInjured 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin raised his fist during the national anthem. No other player had a visible protest.UP NEXTLions: Host New England on Sunday night.49ers: Visit Kansas City on Sunday.

Giants-Jaguars halftime score: Giants trail 13-6 after ugly
first half New York Giants football is officially back. The Jaguars got the ball first after the Giants won the coin toss and deferred to the second half. With their first possession New York Giants T-Shirt , the Jags went 59 yards in nearly five minutes, but ended in just three points before the Giants’ offense got the ball for the first time. It was an inauspicious start for the Giants offense when they took the field. A pair of penalties by Ereck Flowers backed the Giants up to their own goal line, and the team was lucky to get punter Riley Dixon breathing room to get the punt off. The Giants quickly got the ball back following a spectacular interception along the sideline on the Jaguars’ next possession, but the ensuing drive stalled in the red zone. Janoris Jenkins nearly came up with another interception — which was still also almost caught for a touchdown by Niles Paul. The result was an incomplete pass which lead to a very long third down attempt, and Leornard Fournette going down awkwardly and limping off the field. He was diagnosed with hamstring tightness and was questionable to return.The Giants offense showed that they could move the ball against the Jaguars’ formidable defense. However, early penalties knocked the offense off schedule, playing in to the Jaguars’ strengths. A touchdown from the Jaguars late in the half extended the lead to 13-3, with the Giants responding with a touchdown to end the half.Eli Manning is 11-of-12 for 98 yards and Odell Beckham Jr. has 5 receptions for 45 yards.Use this as your second-half open thread, and the Giants will get the ball to start the second half. Happy Saturday everyone, and welcome to Week 11 of the college football season. It’s that point in the schedule when we start seeing rivalry games, and we get one of the most fun this week in the “Bedlam” game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. As usual, I always suggest watching Alabama (which is playing Mississippi State) and Wisconsin (which is playing Penn State). We also know, per Chase Goodbread of NFL.com that the New York Giants will be scouting the Alabama/Mississippi State game at 3:30 p.m. which will be on CBS. They will also be scouting West Virginia vs. TCU New York Giants Hats , which will be on FS-1 at noon. Let’s take a look at some other games that might be interesting.(10) Ohio State at (18) Michigan StateFOX - NoonIt’s been a while since we’ve checked in on these two teams. The biggest change came for Ohio State, which lost prospective No. 1 overall pick Nick Bosa to a core muscle injury. He then withdrew from school to concentrate on rehab and preparing for the NFL draft. Fortunately for Ohio State, they still have a number of future NFL players on their defensive line. Also, quarterback Dwayne Haskins is drawing interest, though it is still up in the air whether or not he will (or should, as a red-shirt sophomore) enter the 2019 NFL Draft, but it is worth doing your homework on him.Players to watchOhio StateDwayne Haskins (QB)K.J.

This game is almost always a wild one, and Oklahoma continues to have one of the most fun offenses in college or the NFL. Kyler Murray might be going on to have a career as a professional baseball player after this year, but he is still one hell of a college quarterback — and “Hollywood” Brown is one of the most exciting receivers around. Making things even more interesting, OK State running back Justice Hill took to Instagram to post about the game, tagging Oklahoma players as “little boys” and “kids.”Players to watch Oklahoma StateJustice Hill (RB)Jordan Brailford (EDGE)OklahomaCody Ford (OL)Bobby Evans (OL)Ben Powers (OL) Rodney Anderson (RB)Marquise Brown (WR)(2) Clemson at (17) Boston CollegeABC - 8 p.m. Depending on how the remainder of the season plays out New York Giants Hoodie , this game could be very interesting to the Giants. This game features a pair of matchups between offensive and defensive lines which could be great scouting fodder in the lead-up to the draft.The marquee matchup will be between BC guard Chris Lindstrom and the Clemson defensive front. The Tigers field one of the best defensive lines in all of college football, with a trio of players in Clelin Ferrell, Dexter Lawrence, and Christian Wilkins who could all be drafted in the first round. Lindstrom is in the running to be one of the top guards in the draft, and this could be the first game scouts go back and watch after the season. On the other side is Clemson OT Mitch Hyatt and Boston College defensive end Zach Allen. Allen doesn’t get much press in a crowded class of pass rushers, but he is remarkably solid, first as the anvil to Harold Landry’s hammer, and now as “The Guy.” At 6-foot-5, 285, he should be able to play on either a 4-3 or 3-4 defensive line, and could best fit as a 3-4 defensive end. Hyatt is an experienced left tackle who became Clemson’s starter as soon as he walked on campus. He has all the tools to be a starter at the NFL level, but has yet to put it all together and play up to his potential.Players to watchClemson Clelin Ferrell (EDGE)Christian Wilkins (DT)Dexter Lawrence (DT)Austin Bryant (EDGE)Kendall Joseph (LB)Trayvon Mullen (CB)Mitch Hyatt (OT)Boston CollegeChris Lindstrom (OG) Zach Allen (DE/EDGE)Wyatt Ray (EDGE)

Monday night marked the second time this season
http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-rhett-ellison-jersey , the New York Giants came away with a win. It ended up as a wild one decided by a couple breaks and a last-minute drive. The end result was a 27-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers and a mostly positive performance for the Giants out of the bye to kick off the second half of the season.These are some of the most important plays of the game by Win Probability Added (WPA) and Expected Points Added (EPA), per data provided by nflscrapR. Explainers here (WPA) and here (EPA).Both WPA and EPA presented from the perspective of the offense.4:12 remaining, first quarter - Forcing a mistakeEPA: minus-2.99 | WPA: minus-7.0 percentDuring San Francisco’s win against the Oakland Raiders last Thursday, head coach Kyle Shanahan helped Nick Mullens by scheming up wide open throws. Per Next Gen Stats, Mullens threw no passes into tight coverage (defined as fewer than one yard of separation) against the Raiders. That wasn’t the case against the Giants. Mullens only threw 7.7 percent of his passes into tight coverage on Monday night, but that was enough to force some mistakes. With good protection but nowhere to throw the ball, Mullens fired a long strike towards the sideline to Kendrick Bourne. But Janoris Jenkins was able to break on the ball and tipped it in the air for a B.J. Goodson interception deep in San Francisco territory.2:48 remaining, first quarter - Odell all aloneEPA: 3.4 | WPA: 10.6 percentThree plays later, the Giants faced a third-and-8 from the San Francisco 10-yard line. The Giants came out in a 3x1 look with Evan Engram isolated to the right and Bennie Fowler, Odell Beckham, and Sterling Shepard to the trips side on the left. As the middle receiver in the trips, Beckham was able to sneak past the 49ers’ zone coverage and settle down in the back of the end zone for an easy touchdown and a 7-3 lead. The key to this play was a stunt picked up by right guard Jamon Brown, who made his first start for the Giants. Defensive end Cassius Marsh (54) made a late move and Brown was able to pick it up in front of Eli Manning as the quarterback got the ball away.14:06 remaining, third quarter - Picking on OgletreeEPA: 2.4 | WPA: 8.4 percentIn the first half, the San Francisco 49ers picked on Landon Collins in man coverage, mostly against tight end George Kittle. But the focus of the second half was Alec Ogletree. On San Francisco’s first drive of the second half, the Niners faced a third-and-5 from their 45. San Francisco used motion to bring George Kittle into the backfield and that showed linebacker Tae Davis would follow in coverage, which left Ogletree on Matt Brieda. Brieda ran an angle route out of the backfield and got inside Ogletree for a gain of 19.8:15 remaining, third quarter - Still picking on OgletreeEPA: 3.44 | WPA: 10.0 percentThe drive ended with another play designed to pick on Ogletree in coverage. On a third-and-8 from the Giants’ 11 http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-connor-barwin-jersey , San Francisco rushed out of the huddle and had a four-man bunch to the right of the formation. At the snap, Brieda ran a crossing route that forced Ogletree to run through traffic across the field. He never came close. Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was the only receiver lined up to the left of the formation and he was inline like a tight end. He ran a drag to the right, which carried Janoris Jenkins enough to create more space for Brieda on the left. This play was a master class in pacing and spacing. It gave the 49ers a 20-10 lead right out of halftime.6:40 remaining, third quarter - Beckham againEPA: 3.62 | WPA: 12.3 percentBut the Giants would answer on the following drive. After a 51-yard kick return from Corey Coleman and a 30-yard pass to Beckham on first down, the Giants were set up pretty well. A t3-yard run from Saquon Barkley set up a second-and-7 from the San Francisco 20. The Giants lined up Odell Beckham wide to the left, away from Richard Sherman. They sent Beckham on a go route to the end zone and the pass from Eli Manning was just a touch too far. Beckham got a hand on it because he’s Odell Beckham, but that wasn’t enough to bring it in.The Giants decided to run the same play on third down. Beckham again got past cornerback Akhello Witherspoon and the pass was in a much better spot — easily caught by Beckham for the touchdown.0:50 remaining, third quarter - Third down ---> First downEPA: 3.13 | WPA: 11.4 percentLate in the third quarter, the 49ers had a third-and-4 from their own 31. That really didn’t bother San Francisco because they had no problem converting on third down Monday night — they finished 8-for-13 (61.5 percent). The 49ers motioned into a 3x1 set with a bunch to the right and Goodwin on the left. The Giants rushed just three and dropped eight into coverage. The rush brought no pressure and Mullens was able to wait for Goodwin to break open in the middle of the field despite the increased number of defenders in coverage.The play was made worse after the tackle from Ogletree was flagged for unnecessary roughness, which tacked on another 15 yards. 15:00 remaining, fourth quarter - Goodson, good timingEPA: minus-5.58 | WPA: minus-15.7 percentTwo plays later San Francisco faced a 1st and 18 from the Giants’ 31, thanks to a Weston Richburg holding penalty. Mullens, with some pressure from Dalvin Tomlinson in his face, had Goodwin open on a crossing route, but threw the pass a little behind the receiver. The ball bounced up off Goodwin’s hands and into the arms of a waiting B.J. Goodson for his second interception of the night.2:43 remaining, fourth quarter - Engram emergesEPA: 2.21 | WPA: 15.4 percentThe Giants didn’t take advantage of the interception but still had a chance to win the game at the end of the fourth quarter. At the start of the Giants’ drive, they had a 35.5 percent chance to win. After an incompletion on first down, the Giants broke glass in case of an emergency and sent Evan Engram on a route down the field. Engram gave a quick hesitation three yards down the field http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-ray-ray-armstrong-jersey , which allowed him to get past the defense and down the sideline for a gain of 31 yards. Engram had five targets in the game and four of them came on this drive.1:35 remaining, fourth quarter - Barkley breaks freeEPA: 1.19 | WPA: 12.4 percentAfter a few more plays and a couple penalties, the Giants faced a second-and-10 from the San Francisco 35. The Giants came out with a spread 3x1 set with Odell Beckham on the left, the same side as Saquon Barkley in the backfield. At the snap, Barkley ran an angle route out of the backfield and two 49ers — defensive end Cassius Marsh (54) and linebacker Malcolm Smith (51) — go to cover the running back. But there’s a miscommunication somewhere and both players go to the outside, which let Barkley break to the middle of the field and run after the catch. The play went for 23 yards and got the Giants down to the 12-yard line.0:57 remaining, fourth quarter - Shep outEPA: 3.18 | WPA: 26.6 percentA 9-yard pass to Evan Engram set up a second-and-1 from the 3-yard line. The Giants came out in a 2x2 look with Fowler and Shepard to the left, Beckham wide to the right, and Engram standing up, but tight on the right side of the line. At the snap, Shepard ran a quick out and beat rookie defensive back D.J. Reed, who never had a chance. Barkley picked up a blitz and Manning was able to float a pass to the open space for Shepard to bring the ball down in bounds for what would be the game-winning touchdown. Thomas McGaughey has been doing more in the offseason than getting the New York Giants' special teams ready for the opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.The 45-year-old coordinator has been undergoing treatment for a rare form of cancer that strikes roughly 8,000 people in the United States annually.It's called Periampullary cancer, a bile duct cancer located near the small intestine. McGaughey has been receiving oral medication and chemotherapy. He is now on his fifth round, and has a couple more left."It's going good," McGaughey said Thursday while disclosing his diagnosis and treatment with the media for the first time.Still, the treatments have left him drained at times. He missed time during organized team activities in the spring. The Giants compensated by asking Tom Quinn, the team's special teams coordinator under Ben McAdoo and Tom Coughlin, to join Pat Shurmur's staff.The thought of taking time away from football and concentrating on his healthy never entered McGaughey's head. He even returns to work as soon as his chemo is finished."As a football coach http://www.authenticsnewyorkgiants.com/cheap-b.j.-goodson-jersey , you don't think of that stuff," McGaughey said. "You get up. You do what you do, and live life. I am not going to let any chemotherapy, cancer or anything else get in the way of what I do. I am a football coach. I am a father, a football coach and that's what I do. I've got to get up every day. Nobody really cares, and they are not going to feel sorry for you. It's get up and go to work."McGaughey isn't the only member of the organization being treated for cancer. General manager Dave Gettleman was diagnosed with lymphoma this spring."We share our chemotherapy stories, and talk about the medication, and that stuff," McGaughey said with a smile. "We definitely have our conversations. Dave's a great man and it is what it is. We just have to fight through it and keep it moving."McGaughey said a scan of his system three weeks ago was fine.McGaughey said the cancer was discovered by good fortune after he had two bouts with sepsis, a condition that happens when the body's response to infection causes injury to its own tissues and organs.Doctors performed an endoscopy and found a growth in his bile duct."They removed it," McGaughey said. "I had a very extensive procedure called a Whipple Procedure, and during the Whipple they found a cancer on one of my lymph nodes and I have been undergoing chemotherapy for the last about two months."Shurmur said Quinn was brought to help McGaughey on the "tough" days. However, he said McGaughey is handling everything."T-Mac has been doing a great job and he has our guys ready to play," Shurmur said.The one question that made McGaughey laugh was when he was asked what his thoughts would be if Shurmur let rookie Saquon Barkley handle the kickoff returns and Odell Beckham Jr. run the punts back."Thank God," McGaughey said. "These guys are playmakers and any time you get a chance to put a playmaker on the field and give you the best chance to win, you know, that's what you want to do. You are trying to win the game. That's the purpose of it."NOTES: LB Olivier Vernon missed another practice with the ankle injury and he is looking doubtful for the opener. ... Defensive coordinator James Bettcher says if Vernon can play a number of people will fill his role with Connor Barwin and rookie Lorenzo Carter, the most likely. ... Offensive coordinator Mike Shula on what he saw in rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta. "We think Kyle is a young guy that just has continued to get better with reps. He's got very good football intelligence. I think he's got some intangibles that you need at that position."

Note: Use this post as your Sunday non-Giants game thread
Three straight 8-win weeks. With so many teams on a bye last week http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-connor-barwin-jersey , that means only five losses. That brings the overall season record to just a game shy of .500. We’re getting close.Remember these picks are strictly for fun and entertainment purposes and please for your sake do not take these picks as gambling advice. Lines used here come from the Westgate Las Vegas via OddsShark. Home team in CAPS.Carolina (+3.5) over PITTSBURGHOut of nowhere, the Carolina Panthers are playing like one of the best teams in the league. They’re third in overall DVOA, fifth in offensive DVOA, and a defense that was struggling to start the season is now 14th. Even Carolina’s special teams in sixth in DVOA. Pittsburgh’s defense is just 21st in DVOA, so the Steelers will have to score quite a bit to potentially keep up with the Panthers. That’s certainly possible, but right now Carolina has the advantage in all three stages.[Update: ha, 0-1]CHICAGO (-6.5) over DetroitThe Bears are still first in defensive DVOA and their success has really hinged on what the offense has been able to do on a week-to-week basis. That unit is still 10th in DVOA and will be up against a Detroit defense that ranks 29th, so even an uneven week from the Chicago offense could get the job done.KANSAS CITY (-16.5) over ArizonaEarly returns on the Byron Leftwich era were positive for the Cardinals, but facing the Chiefs and facing the 49ers are two vastly different experiences. The Chiefs have improved to 14th in pass defensive DVOA, though still sport a league-worst defense against the run. The problem there is running on the Chiefs isn’t nearly enough to keep pace against the Kansas City offense. New England (-6.5) over TENNESSEEThere’s only a handful of teams to take less than a touchdown against the Patriots. For whatever the Titans did against the Cowboys on Monday night, they’re not one of them.New Orleans (-5.5) over CINCINNATIThese are two teams that have been going in opposite directions lately. The Bengals started off promising, but have fallen back to the pack in recent weeks. After a slew of WHAT’S WRONG WITH THE SAINTS stories over the first few weeks of the season, New Orleans sits at 7-1 through Week 9. It’s hard to take anyone over the Saints right now, especially a team that hasn’t been at its best.Atlanta (-4) over CLEVELANDThe Atlanta offense has been rolling of late — a unit ranked sixth by DVOA. Even the defense has been slightly improving, though playing the Giants and Washington certainly helps. But that defense is getting back Deion Jones probably next week and just signed Bruce Irvin. Meanwhile, the Browns are losing players from their defense and while the offense has figured out how to use Duke Johnson now, any optimism for a Browns leap forward will probably have to be saved for 2019.Jacksonville (+3) over INDIANAPOLISAs much as the Jaguars aren’t up to the standard of what they were last season Cheap Will Hernandez Jersey , they’re not suddenly terrible. Jacksonville is still sixth in defensive DVOA and fifth on special teams. The 28th-ranked offense is definitely a problem, but with high variance, that unit can look fine at any point. Indianapolis is much better than many expected for 2018, but not significantly better than the current version of the Jaguars.Washington (+3) over TAMPA BAYCan an injured offense that’s not able to move the ball efficiently take advantage of a defense that lets opponents run wild down the field? Is there any game I care about less this week? Taking the points here and hoping Red Zone shows no more than 30 seconds of this game on Sunday.Buffalo (+6.5) over JETSI’m not sure if Josh McCown makes a Bills win more or less likely. But Buffalo does rank second in defensive DVOA, the only thing that has kept them in the games the Bills have been in. Maybe that’s enough to keep them close in this game. But anything is possible with the worst offense in modern history.Chargers (-9.5) over OAKLANDTake one of the league’s best offenses, put them against a defense that just allowed 34 points to a Nick Mullens-led 49ers offense and the line isn’t even double digits? Sure. This could have been the Chiefs/Cardinals line and I still would have taken the Chargers.GREEN BAY (-9.5) over MiamiMiami started the season as one of the league’s top defenses. That is not the case anymore — 19th in DVOA. The Packers haven’t been the Packers at any point this season, but a November home game against a Dolphins team still starting Brock Osweiler at quarterback could be a good chance to change that.Seattle (+9.5) over RAMSIn years when one of these teams wasn’t good, these games were still close. Five weeks ago these teams played to a two-point game. Seattle is now a top-10 team by DVOA (ninth) with a top-five defense. The Rams are still better — they’re better than just about everyone — but we shouldn’t expect this game to be a blowout.Dallas (+7) over PHILADELPHIANo team in the NFC East is good. Philadelphia is fine — or will eventually be fine — and the other three are varying levels of bad. Still, fine might not be enough to be a seven-point favorite against a division rival, even at home. SAN FRANCISCO (-3) over GiantsThe 49ers just took a backup quarterback making his NFL debut and put up 34 points last Thursday. The Giants have scored 34 points zero times this season and not at all since Week 15 of 2015. Last week: 8-5Season: 64-65-5 On Sunday, with a beleaguered head coach and a chance to rescue a season about to go off the rails against a bad Buffalo Bills team using its fourth starting quarterback, the New York Jets embarrassed themselves. They were never competitive, never seemed remotely interested in doing more than getting the game over with, and lost an astoundingly lopsided 41-10 game.On Monday night, at 1-7 and with any chance of playing games that had meaning for the 2018 season having vanished long ago, the New York Giants could have simply gone through the motions. They could have just crumpled and figured this was another lost cause in a lost year, especially when the San Francisco 49ers went ahead 20-10 midway through the third quarter.That Cheap Eli Manning Jersey , however, isn’t what happened. Led by an imperfect and beleaguered in his own right 37-year-old quarterback fighting to maintain his job and his dignity in the midst of a second straight disastrous season, the Giants fought back. They overcame that 10-point deficit. They got a game-winning drive from Eli Manning, albeit one helped by a pair of San Francisco penalties. They hung on with the 49ers reaching the Giants’ 21-yard line before Nick Mullens’ game-ending pass sailed out of the back of the end zone.They won a game, beating the 49ers 27-23 on Monday Night Football.“We made progress tonight,” head coach Pat Shurmur said. “As we go along here we’re going to have more victories. They’re going to always be hard fought. This team fights hard.”The Giants made progress. Isn’t that the point? Isn’t that what’s important? They entered the game having won only four times in their last 24 outings.For starters, they won. Sorry to disagree with those who were hoping the Giants would lose out, go 1-15, and get the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. They still might get that No. 1 pick, but the view here is there is never anything wrong with winning. You remember this, right?The Giants won the game because they did many of the things they were unable to do throughout the first eight games.They protected Manning as he was sacked only once. Progress.The quarterback responded by going 19-of-31 and throwing three touchdowns. He climbed the pocket beautifully on a 10-yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr. in the first half. He underthrew a deep shot to Beckham in the fourth quarter, but given a chance by the line he kept taking his shots. Progress. The Giants created a couple of turnovers, with linebacker B.J. Goodson snagging a pair of deflected passes. Progress.They got an excellent game from rookie linebacker Lorenzo Carter, probably his best as a pro. Progress.They may have found a couple of useful players. Corey Coleman had a 51-yard kickoff return and a key third down catch for a first down. Guard Jamon Brown wasn’t perfect, but he threw a critical block on Manning’s first touchdown pass and his play offered reason for optimism. Progress.The Giants, 31st in the league in the red zone, got touchdowns on two of their four trips inside San Francisco’s 20-yard line. They got field goals on the other trips http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-riley-dixon-jersey , so they ended up with points on all four occasions. They did miss an opportunity when they chose to run on third-and-goal from the 3-yard line despite Beckham appearing to be uncovered. Not perfect, but progress.Shurmur’s play-calling showed progress. More use of fullback Elijhaa Penny, including two pass receptions. A season- and career-high 20 carries for Saquon Barkley, many probing the edges. Some vertical passing in the second half that included using Barkley and tight end Evan Engram down the field. Something that can’t be overlooked is that the Giants played hard for Shurmur. At this point a year ago, players were getting suspended and the locker room was fracturing. The team was coming apart. The fact that that hasn’t happened this season, and that they fought back on Monday rather than folding their tents and figuring the outcome didn’t matter because the season was already lost, was something fans should feel good about. Again, it’s progress.Manning leading a game-winning drive, the 36th of his career and maybe the last one we will ever see from the best quarterback in franchise history, was a feel-good moment. It is also probably what most of the headlines will focus on.What was really important, though, was that the Giants made progress.That, really, was the best thing that happened on Monday night.

The Uber driver who accused Jameis Winston of groping her has
filed a lawsuit against the Buccaneers quarterback Authentic Justin Evans Jersey , Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.The driver, identified as Kate P. in federal court papers filed Tuesday, alleges that Winston grabbed her crotch as she drove him through a restaurant drive-through in March 2016 in Arizona. In the lawsuit, she said she “suffered damages in the nature of emotional distress and future therapy expenses.”Winston can return to the Bucs on Sept. 25 after the team’s game against the Steelers on Monday night. The league suspended him three games after its eight-month investigation determined Winston touched the women “in an inappropriate and sexual manner without her consent.”Prosecutors have not charged Winston with a crime.After his suspension in June http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com/beau-allen-jersey , Winston released a statement saying “I genuinely apologize” to the woman. “She is unimpressed by his continued lack of honesty or awareness into his behavior,” John Clune, the attorney for the Uber driver, told Baker. “Maybe a more direct financial penalty will get his attention. He needs to learn from this and have some genuine insight or pay the penalty.“She knows that she might be just a speed bump for him in his football career Womens Carlton Davis Jersey , but she is not going to be a small one.”The Crow’s Nest: Game 1 reactions, missed kicks, and Cam-Kelvin beef Hyde10: Ten thoughts on Dolphins’ 26-24 loss to Buccaneers - Sun SentinelTen thoughts on the Miami Dolphins’ first preseason game."Hey, We Got That First Missed Extra Point Out Of The Way" - JoeBucsFan.comYour beloved Buccaneers marched down and scored a touchdown in their first possession tonight in Miami.Offense Shined Early - JoeBucsFan.comLovie Smith always used to talk about fast starts — when he wasn’t talking about takeaways and talking up the Hall of Fame skills of Mike Jenkins.Missed kicks continue to plague Bucs - Bucs WireThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still looking for a solution to their kicking woes.Bucs At Dolphins: Tampa Bay Tops Battle Of South Florida 26-24 | Pewter ReportThe Bucs quaretrbacks looked comfortable amnd confident down in Miami for their first preseason game Authentic Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey , getting the win by a score of 26-24.Cam confronts Kelvin Benjamin ahead of Panthers-Bills - NFL.comLess than a week after Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin criticized his former quarterback Cam Newton in the press, Newton confronted Benjamin to his face.Baker Mayfield shines in Cleveland Browns debut - NFL.comBaker Mayfield showed off some of the qualities that made him the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft during his preseason debut Thursday against the New York Giants.Saquon Barkley makes immediate impact for Giants - NFL.comThe second-overall pick in the draft was the first to make an impact for the Giants on Thursday night.

The NFL tapped Titans coach Mike Vrabel to narrate a video
detailing the new rule on lowering the head to initiate contact Youth Justin Evans Jersey , hoping the man who played 14 years as a linebacker in the league could more easily explain how players should adapt.Now Vrabel's own Titans (0-2) find themselves tied with defending champion Philadelphia for the most lowering-the-head penalties through two preseason games with five apiece. Tennessee was flagged three times for the new rule in an opening loss in Green Bay , and the Titans added two more in Saturday night's 30-14 loss to Tampa Bay .Getting it right matters because any player initiating contact with his helmet could be ejected after an in-game video review decided in New York.So far this preseason, blame either the player making contact, the speed of the game or everyone still getting used to the new rule."Pretty much all those are going to fall into one of those categories," Vrabel said Sunday.Titans safety Kenny Vaccaro drew one penalty for running across the field to tackle Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans at the end of a 38-yard reception on the sideline. Wide receiver Nick Williams was flagged late in the third quarter while on punt coverage, costing the Titans 15 yards.Vrabel said Vaccaro has to do a better job avoiding contact with the crown of his helmet while trying to break up the pass. The coach wasn't sure if Williams made contact, but noted the receiver's head was in the linear position the NFL is trying to eliminate from the game. The Titans will turn those plays into the league for an explanation.The coach said he already showed his team an eight-minute video from the NFL of penalties in the first week of the preseason."We'll keep doing that and we'll keep coaching it and we'll keep stressing it, and hopefully it doesn't, one, lead to injuries, or two, cost us yards," Vrabel said.Even though the rule is new, six NFL teams that have played two preseason games have not been flagged even once for lowering the head to initiate contact. Indianapolis, who plays Baltimore on Monday night, was not flagged in its preseason opener. Behind the Titans and Eagles, five teams have been penalized under the rule three times apiece: Arizona http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-beau-allen-jersey , Atlanta, Carolina, the Rams and San Francisco.Chicago has three such penalties through three exhibitions.The Titans have been penalized 25 times for 258 yards through two games.Asked if officials might be a bit overzealous enforcing the rule during the preseason before hopefully scaling back in the regular season, Vrabel said he wasn't really sure."I try to do my job. They ask me to provide a video, a voiceover video , on what I thought was the right way to play outside linebacker or inside linebacker taking these blocks on, tackling. I thought I tried to go through and provide examples of what was good and what was probably needed to be fixed and changed in some of the style of play," Vrabel said."But they don't tell me, 'Hey, coach, this is going to get scaled back in the regular season.' I think these guys are doing what their boss, and the league, is just telling them to do. So if they see that position and they see contact, they're calling it."That leaves Vrabel and his assistants coaching the Titans better to adjust how they play.Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalkerFavorite Buccaneers jersey of all-time. With the theme being “Jersey week” here at SB Nation, I figured I would pick my favorite Buccaneers jersey of all time. In other words, if I had to buy one jersey throughout the team’s history, this would be the one I’d get. Personally http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-jason-pierre-paul-jersey , I’m not a big fan of the current jerseys. I don’t know why, but they just don’t do it for me, I almost feel like there is just too much going on. On a side not, the color rush jerseys are awesome, but the team only wore them on Thursday night games. This year, teams have the option to wear them when they want. If it was my choice, they would be the pick every Sunday. Anyway, back to my “must buy” jersey.I currently own four Buccaneer jerseys. The two “road” jerseys I own are Kwon Alexander and Lavonte David. The two “home” jerseys I own are Jameis Winston and Mike Evans. I know I stated before that I’m not a huge fan of the jerseys, but I do wear them all the time because I try and support the team the best I can. My favorite Buccaneers jersey of all time is the ones they sported during the Super Bowl in 2003. I think those are my favorites because of the memories not only that game brought, but that season brought as well. Those jerseys were worn when the franchise was extremely successful and Raymond James Stadium was one of the most feared places in the NFL. It just brings back good memories and it’s something not only myself, but this entire fanbase needs. So, you know the jersey, but you don’t know the player. The player I would chose for the back of the jersey would be Ronde Barber. Barber was my favorite Buccaneer growing up and we all remember the impact he had during the Super Bowl run. That pick six is still playing over in many Buccaneers fans heads and we as a fan base, can only hope another one of those glorious moments are on the horizon. Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty ImagesLet me know what your choice would be, Bucs fans! I’m going to make a tally of the most popular choices and let all the readers know who the favorite was!

Bucs vs Steelers: Winners and Losers Tampa

#113 liny195 » 10.12.2018, 07:42

Bay showed the type of fight on Monday night that we hadn’t seen from this franchise in a long time. However Cheap Donovan Smith Jersey , the Buccaneers also displayed the same sort of mistakes in the first half that have been frustrating fans for years. A valiant comeback effort fell just short late in the fourth quarter after a three and out from the offense. With three timeouts and a chance to get the ball back, Tampa Bay’s defense faltered and allowed Pittsburgh to pick up a few first downs and ice the game.Now, there’s some question marks floating around this team with Jameis Winston back in the fold. Who will be the starting quarterback? Will teams stop shredding the Bucs through the air? Can Tampa Bay find any rhythm on the ground?On a short week with a road game in Chicago on Sunday, the Buccaneers are going to have to get things figured out and they need to do it fast. Luckily for Tampa Bay, the Bears have had one of the worst offenses in the league to this point. They rank just No. 26 overall in total offense and No. 28 in passing offense.Winners1. Mike EvansOutside of a miscommunication with Ryan Fitzpatrick that resulted in an interception during the first half, Mike Evans was the most electric player on Tampa Bay’s offense all night. Time and time again, the former Texas A&M star stepped up exactly when he was needed. Evans hauled down a 51-yard pass to set Tampa Bay up inside the Pittsburgh ten-yard line near the end of the second quarter.Later in the game, with the Buccaneers needing a touchdown to stay alive, Fitzpatrick delivered a perfect throw to find Evans from 24-yards out for another score.Evans finished with six receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown on 11 targets. He also became Tampa Bay’s all-time leader in touchdown catches with 35. 2. Justin EvansIt’s the Evans brothers (no Peyton Barber Jersey , they’re not actually brothers) in the winners column this week. Safety Justin Evans was solid in coverage throughout the night and made possibly the most exciting play for this defense all game.Evans read Ben Roethlisberger’s eyes all the way on a pass and closed in on JuJu Smith-Schuster before diving in front of him for an athletic interception. Tampa Bay would score on the ensuing drive for its only lead of the game. Evans finished with six total tackles and a pass deflection outside of his interception. 3. OJ Howard/Cameron BrateThe Buccaneers tight end combo was phenomenal on Monday night, hence why I’m highlighting both of them. OJ Howard is simply a mismatch for almost any defender in the NFL. His mix of size, hands, and athleticism will be a continued force to be reckoned with as long as he continues to develop. He showed off some of those skills last night.Howard’s first catch of the game was a short pass where the former Alabama star broke a tackle and muscled his way for a first down. He also came up in the clutch. Howard caught three passes late in the fourth quarter on touchdown drive that brought the Bucs within three. He finished with six catches for 72 yards.Cameron Brate finally got his first touches of the season and he didn’t disappoint. Brate hauled down three passes for 34 yards and a touchdown. Tampa Bay could pick on linebackers all day if they targeted both of the playmakers even more.Losers1. Offensive lineTampa Bay’s offensive line left much to be desired during the loss to the Steelers. After allowing just two sacks over the first two games, the Buccaneers surrendered three last night, bringing their season total to five.Missed assignments and pressure were also, perhaps, the main causes of two of Fitzpatrick’s three interceptions in the game. On the first interception, Demar Dotson blocked inside instead of outside and the defensive end had free reign to tip Fitzpatrick’s pass and force a pick.Later in second quarter Cheap Justin Evans Jersey , center Ryan Jensen was pushed back by Dan McCullers which resulted in the Steelers defensive lineman hitting Fitzpatrick’s arm before he could follow through on the pass. You know what happened next.The running game also didn’t take much of a step forward as Tampa Bay had to basically abandon it in the second half to try and catch back up. The Buccaneers finished with 16 carries for 63 yards (3.9 YPC). For the season, the team has scored just one touchdown on the ground and is averaging a mere 3.0 yards per rushing attempt. 2. Chris ConteDo I have to break this one down? Chris Conte was on the wrong side of one of the nastiest stiff arms that I’ve ever seen live.Journeyman tight end Vance McDonald caught a short pass from Roethlisberger before absolutely destroying Conte and going the distance for 75-yards. It was McDonald’s longest reception in two years.Conte didn’t return to the game with a knee injury but I think all of us know the bruise was closer to his ego. 3. Isaiah JohnsonAfter slamming into the stadium wall during a wild play that occurred in the first half, I honestly didn’t think we’d see Isaiah Johnson again. Johnson and the receiver he was covering both seemed to lose track of a long pass from Roethlisberger that sailed out of the back of the end zone. The play ended with Johnson, at full speed, getting blindsided by the wall.The defensive back returned later in the game and he was flagged for a penalty on Tampa Bay’s most explosive play of the night. Down 30-20 and needing a score, DeSean Jackson returned a punt through the Pittsburgh coverage unit and up the sideline for a touchdown.Tampa Bay trailed by just three with just under nine minutes to play. As Jackson celebrated in the end zone, the Buccaneers noticed the flag. Holding on Johnson. The Bucs would still score on the drive, it just took an extra three minutes, which they could’ve used at the end. Honorary Loser1. Ronald JonesIt’s not good when you’ve been a healthy scratch for three weeks. It’s really not good when you’re a Second-Round pick who’s been a healthy scratch despite a struggling running game.What the heck is going on with Ronald Jones? Tampa Bay elected to dress cornerback Javien Elliott over him against Pittsburgh. With the way the running backs have struggled on the ground thus far Buccaneers Caleb Benenoch Jersey , this is a disappointing sign for Johnson. This isn’t how the former USC tailback expected to spend his first year in the NFL.The Crow’s Nest: Looking ahead, the running game, and first quarter highlights Bring On The 1-4 Falcons! - JoeBucsFan.comThe schedule gods are smiling upon the Buccaneers.Bad Running Attack - JoeBucsFan.comThe Bucs running game is just not good.Ask Gary: What are the odds Bucs’ brass survives? — Gary Shelton SportsEach week, the readers take over GarySheltonsports.com and play Ask Gary.

Welcome to Week 2 of the NFL! This weekly column
includes a lot of loose ends leading up to Sunday’s game.Pokorny’s 10 Things to Watch in Week 2 - Browns and the NFL1. Josh Gordon is Gone: I guess it’s a good thing I waited so late to write my column this week Jarvis Landry Jersey , because a lot would’ve changed between Saturday morning and Saturday night with the news of the team saying goodbye to WR Josh Gordon. Last week, we’re talking about it being his first Week 1 game since 2012. By Week 2, the team is moving on for good. I guess it’s an expected end to Gordon’s reign with the team, but it’s just a sad feeling overall. I wanted so badly for Cleveland to have a star player, and he is as talented of a receiver anyone could ever ask for.Assuming he hasn’t had a major relapse, instead of the Browns outright waiving him, they should take the highest compensation package offered. It will likely be a conditional draft pick, contingent upon Gordon not getting into trouble with his new team. I speculated the trade scenario right away, and it wasn’t long before teams came calling:2. Where Do We Go from Here? It’s back to preseason mode. One very good thing we have to fall back on is the fact that WR Jarvis Landry is a stud, so it’s not like the team is without a No. 1 receiver. WR Antonio Callaway is the big benefactor here. He has lights out speed and should be elevated to the starting lineup. WR Rashard Higgins will also see a good amount of action after having a fantastic camp and preseason. This should also open the door for more targets for RB Duke Johnson.The obvious quesiton now is whether this means WR Dez Bryant will become a priority for the Browns. The two sides have been linked together for awhile. At this point, the headlines that come with Bryant may be more trouble than it’s worth, when you can use this opportunity to develop your younger players instead.3. The Importance of the Tie: Back to your regularly scheduled program. After last week’s unexpected tie to begin the season, let’s talk about what that means from a coaching and strategic perspective the rest of the season. A tie is not as bad as you may think. When you are calculating winning percentages, it is based on the following:Win = 1.0Loss = 0.0Tie = 0.5If it helps you make sense of it, the Browns have a record of 0.5 wins - 0 losses. Let’s say the Browns have a great season and win 8 games. Let’s say the Bengals also win 8 games, but lose 8 games. Cleveland would get the tiebreaker over Cincinnati, because they would technically have 8.5 wins, which is greater than 8 wins.4. Strategic Perspective of a Tie: From a strategic perspective, the big thing that Hue Jackson must understand for the rest of the season is possibly settling for another tie if that scenario were to arise. 2 ties end up equaling a win. So let’s say the Browns finish the season with a record of 7-7-2. That means in reality, you could treat their record as 8-7, which is better than any team that would’ve finished .500 in the standings. That could matter for a wildcard spot.Let’s think about this. If the Browns are tied with the Saints in overtime this week, and have the ball at the 50 yard line facing a 4th-and-10 with 1:20 left in the game, what would you want them to do? Instinct may scream at Jackson if he punts the ball, because you are basically giving up the chance to win. But playing for a tie instead of a loss has real value for your positioning in the standings, and I hope it is something he and his staff has at least discussed. Even though two ties doesn’t happen in the NFL, with overtime being shortened to 10 minutes last year, I think it’s only a matter of time before it does happen.5. Fond Saints-Browns Memories: The Browns haven’t had much success since returning to the league in 1999...except when it comes to the New Orleans Saints, a team they have a 4-1 record against during that span. Not only that, but the games have had some of the most memorable moments for the club since 1999. Let’s see the highlights:Their first win in the new era, the Tim Couch Hail Mary in 1999:In 2010, Eric Mangini beat the Saints in a string of impressive wins. It included TWO pick sixes by David Bowens, but also this miraculous fake punt by Reggie Hodges:And then came the Browns’ Week 2 win over the Saints in 2014, when Brian Hoyer found Andrew Hawkins wide open, setting up a game-winning field goal as time expired:6. Coach Miscommunications: On one hand, I don’t want to make a big deal out of miscommunications between the coaches. It makes it seem as though as I’m fishing for reasons for Hue Jackson to be fired. But now, more than ever, Jackson should have a firm grasp of how his personnel is going to be utilized on gameday, and be on the same page as all of his coaches. It is perfectly fine if he makes the ultimate decisions Authentic Nick Chubb Jersey , but why was there a mix-up in how the first play of last week’s game would be called, personnel-wise? (Josh Gordon was involved in a formation that included three tight ends, but Jackson did not want him to start). Also, prior to the game, special teams coordinator Amos Jones said that Antonio Callaway would be the punt returner, and that both he and Jabrill Peppers would be in on kickoffs. Instead, Peppers returned almost all of the punts. Heading into Week 2 now, Jones said, “Coach made that decision. Obviously, we are going to stick behind it as coaches. We are going to do what the hell we are told.” Yes, that is true. Do what you are told, and respect the head coaches’ decision. But also, these miscommunications should not be happening so close to gameday in the first place. If they are happening among the coaches, then no wonder the players are perplexed at times too — to where you have alignment mistakes, or special teams blunders (i.e. Joel Bitonio getting overloaded on the blocked kick in overtime). Get it under control, Hue.7. Jake Burns on Browns Film Review: If you haven’t been following, Jake Burns on @BrownsFilmBDN has been doing an insane amount of work breaking down Browns film all preseason and now in Week 1. In the Twitter moment below, he looked at 60 plays from Week 1 alone! I have to admit, it has discouraged me a bit from doing my own film review like I have in the past, because I know how time consuming it is, and before I can get to it, I see that Jake has already covered it all. I think I will try to do a post mid-week that embeds several of his clips for key plays, though, to help highlight his work while offering my own assessment.2018 Week 1: Browns vs. Steelers8. The Little Things Add Up: In his press conference this week, Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was asked about whether the Browns should’ve scored on LB Joe Schobert’s fumble return in overtime. He thinks they should have, and said what happened on the play:9. NFL Week 2 Picks: I went 10-5-1 in Week 1. Here are my Week 2 picks, along with a few notes.I am really pushing it with seven picks for road teams to win! Unfortunately, the Browns aren’t one of them. Some of it has to do with injuries. The Falcons lost two key defensive players, I don’t know what to make of the Titans’ situation, and Aaron Rodgers won’t have his mobility if he plays (but they might not have won anyone against a tough Vikings team).Teams with their stock up last week get rewarded, like the Chiefs over the Steelers and the Jets over the Dolphins. Teams with the stock down, like Buffalo, Oakland, and Detroit, have the opposite effect going for them. My game of the week would be New England vs. Jacksonville, a re-match of the AFC Championship from a year ago. I expect a very physical game, with the Patriots still coming out on top.The pick I feel least confident in is the Giants vs. Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. I don’t know what to make of Dallas, and the Giants are intriguing because of Saquon Barkley but just haven’t sustained winning lately.The Bears earned some brownie points for their effort in Week 1. The loss was a big letdown Darren Fells Jersey , but I think they learn this week and finish for a dominant game.10. Predicting the Browns’ Week 2 Inactives: I predict the following players will be inactive for Sunday’s game against the Saints:Projected Inactives: QB Drew Stanton, WR Josh Gordon, TE Seth DeValve, DE Emmanuel Ogbah, DE Ifeadi Odenigbo, LB Christian Kirksey, and CB Tavierre Thomas.I feel pretty good about getting all the inactives correct this week. Stanton should be down again for not needing three quarterbacks. Gordon, DeValve, Ogbah, and Kirksey are already ruled out, leaving just two players to predict. Odenigbo was inactive last week, and I think Thomas will be down with CB E.J. Gaines back now.Recap: Episode 3 of Cleveland Browns on HBO’s Hard Knocks The third episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks, featuring the Cleveland Browns, took place Tuesday night. Let’s recap the major storylines that were on display.Jarvis Landry vs. Terrance Mitchell FightLast week, we knew about the fight between WR Jarvis Landry and CB Terrance Mitchell in practice, but the hightlight of Hard Knocks came when they captured the build-up to the scrum and then the incident itself, along with the reactions of fellow players and coaches.Todd Haley vs. Gregg WilliamsJust a little friendly ribbing, right?Brad Paisley Visits BereaCountry singer Brad Paisley has been a Browns fan since third grade, and although he didn’t know Joel Bitonio by face, he was eager to see Baker Mayfield. Paisley asked GM John Dorsey if Mayfield reminded him of a Brett Favre, to which Dorsey said he understands why people see those attributes in him, but that that association has to be earned. WR Jarvis Landry said he was a Paisley fan, and then the money part of the segment came when defensive coordinator Gregg Williams met him.Players Digging Baker MayfieldThe segment about QB Tyrod Taylor was about how to pronounce his name, which we’ve heard about to death now. When it came time to focus on QB Baker Mayfield, he gave Brad Paisley a tour of the RV, and then had a package shown of good throws in practice with compliments from his peers:Brogan Roback Slides Into DM’sAnother week, and another segment dedicated to QB Brogan Roback, talking about sliding into Instagram DM’s and then seeing butterflies and chameleons.Dez Bryant in the FacilityEven if the Browns didn’t sign WR Dez Bryant (yet), a segment of the episode was focused on him meeting everyone in Berea. He said he liked the “realness” that he felt from Cleveland when meeting with the team.The previews for next week’s episode make it seem like there will be a little more on Bryant.Other NotesAlonzo Highsmith loves the energy he sees from the players, and thinks he sees similarities to when the Cowboys turned things around from 1-15.Offensive line coach Bob Wylie talked about stretching being overrated, and the only reason he likes it is because it gives him 10 minutes to sit down.There was an embrace between head coach Hue Jackson and wide receiver Corey Coleman before the Bills game.DE Nate Orchard and his roster spot being in jeopardy was featured early, but then the gameday footage and coaches reaction of him missing the quarterback with clean shots was rough. You can tell that the three “underdog” players that the show has chosen to focus on at QB Brogan Roback, TE Devon Cajuste, and Orchard.WR Josh Gordon’s return will be a focal point of Episode 4 next week, as will Mychal Kendricks giving a motivational speech as Cleveland gets set to take on Philadelphia.

However, Giants RB Saquon Barkley ripped off a 39-yard run on the team’s first offensive play.Later on http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jc-tretter-jersey , CB Denzel Ward laid a big third down hit on a receiver after an incomplete pass.

The next time Cleveland got the ball, QB Baker Mayfield http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/joel-bitonio-jersey , the first overall pick, made his debut. His first series was backed up in his own territory, leading to a conservative three-and-out. Like Taylor, though, his second drive ended with success: a 10-yard touchdown pass to Njoku, his second of the game. The Browns went for two, but were denied after WR Antonio Callaway couldn’t pull in a slant pass. The Browns led 13-3 at the half.Cleveland ran the ball three times to start the second half, leading to a three-and-out. The defense then forced a punt, but WR C.J. Board was stripped of the ball, leading to the Giants taking over at the 14 yard line. A few plays later, RB Jalen Simmons punched it in from 5 yards out www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com , making it a 13-10 game.On the Browns’ next series, Mayfield made a tremendous throw to Calloway, who did an equally great job hanging on to the pass.A few negative plays took Cleveland out of field goal range, leading to a punt.

Recap: Episode 2 of Cleveland Browns on HBO’s Hard Knocks
The second episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks Authentic Christian Kirksey Jersey , featuring the Cleveland Browns, took place Tuesday night and picked up right away with a lot of drama. Let’s recap the major storylines that were on display in the action shown to viewers around the globe.Corey Coleman TradedThe episode started right away with the Corey Coleman situation. After showing his massive shoe collection, a montage showed offensive coordinator Todd Haley consistently displeased with the way the third-year receiver was running his routes, or the lack of effort he was putting forth.The only behind-the-scenes footage we got to see was when Coleman stormed into head coach Hue Jackson’s office and said, “Why am I running second team? That shit’s crazy,” to which Jackson told him to ask Haley. That prompted Coleman to say, “If y’all don’t like the way I play, why don’t you just trade me?” And traded he was. One can only speculate that things got more intense/awkward after that, but those parts weren’t shown. Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah could be heard talking about the trade parameters, acknowledging that a 2020 7th round pick basically meant Cleveland told Buffalo “Here Youth Chris Hubbard Jersey , [take him].”DBN’s Mike Hoag has more on the story here.The Antonio Callaway HourThe real star of the hour was wide receiver Antonio Callaway. After Callaway’s incident, but before he told the coaches what happened, both Hue Jackson and Todd Haley could sense something was up on the practice field. They each asked him what was wrong, but instead of being overly harsh on him, it was like a pair of “father-son” moments, with the puppy dog sadness written all over Callaway’s face.Cameras were rolling when Jackson and GM John Dorsey called the rookie in to discuss the situation after learning about it. They expressed their disappointment, but allowed Callaway to explain the story. The team indeed believes him:Not only do the Browns believe his story, they believe in him. A lot. Todd Haley challenged wide receiver Jarvis Landry to take Callaway under his wing:You Know Him NowOne of the surprising features of Episode 2 involved backup tight end Devon Cajuste, who is fourth on the depth chart. A clip package of him being roughed up in practice was followed by a few segments with he and his father. Cajuste had known about his father’s two heart attacks, but on the show http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-terrance-mitchell-jersey , right in front of his son, he revealed that he actually had a third heart attack.Cajuste is then shown gutting it out against the Giants. Despite writhing in pain with a shoulder injury, he is throwing his body into blocks, making catches, and hurdling defenders.Other NotesI really loved how Hue Jackson and Todd Haley came off this week, and Gregg Williams will be Gregg Williams. I know people will poke fun at the “CEO” role, but when Haley was brought in this offseason, these are exactly the types of things (shown in this episode) that it frees Jackson up to do, and I’m all for it.Gregg Williams ripped his defense a new one at halftime of the first preseason game. At the end of the episode, he also had a lighter moment when he says a company sent him a couple of boxes of lozenges.Myles Garrett likes to write poetry. He also looked like he was about to intensely kill Greg Robinson during a practice rep. That’s the psychotic intensity I want to see against Pittsburgh.Brogan Roback continues to get some air time. BRObie is his nick name; that coming after Todd Haley was making fun of Carl Nassib Genard Avery Jersey , saying how does someone name their kid “Carl” when naming a baby?Some ribbing on TE David Njoku for his drops:GM John Dorsey talked to the analytics area about possible receivers to bring in. The list was presented to him, and Dorsey right away asked why Dez Bryant wasn’t on it. The person responded that Bryant was at the bottom of the list, saying that he’s 30. Dorsey corrected him to 29, and the other person said “well, 29.7.”Next WeekThe promos for next week mainly highlighted the Bills vs. Browns game, where Tyrod Taylor faces his former team and Corey Coleman matches up against Cleveland.—What did you think of the second episode, Browns fans? The Falcons continued shuffling pieces on their offensive line Wednesday.The team officially announced that right guard Brandon Fusco has been placed on injured reserve a day after head coach Dan Quinn confirmed he’d miss the rest of the year with an ankle injury. They also announced that Austin Pasztor has been brought back to replace him on the roster.Pasztor saw action in seven games for the Falcons last season, although all of his snaps came on special teams rather than offense. He was a 16-game starter at right tackle and right guard for the Browns in 2016 and has 43 games of starting experience from his time in Cleveland and Jacksonville.The Falcons also confirmed the signing of offensive lineman Rees Odhiambo off of the Colts practice squad.Fusco is the second Falcons guard to land on injured reserve this season. Andy Levitre was lost after playing in the team’s first two games.

A look at what’s happening around the majors Thursday:


The Nationals open a series against Miami hoping to end a five-game skid and get back to .500. Washington fell to 42-43 with a loss to Boston on Wednesday Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey , the first time the preseason NL East favorites have been under .500 this late in the year since being 60-61 on Aug. 21, 2015. The Nationals held a players’ only meeting after a 3-0 loss to the Red Sox highlighted by Adam Eaton’s throwing error and a wild pitch from Ryan Madson. Jeremy Hellickson (2-1, 2.63) makes his second start since returning from the DL, while Marlins righty Pablo Lopez (1-0, 3.00) makes his second MLB start.


Justin Verlander (9-4, 2.12) tries to stop a personal slide when the Astros open a series against the White Sox. Verlander has allowed nine runs in 11 2/3 innings over his past two starts, taking losses to Toronto (four runs) and Tampa Bay (five runs). Verlander hasn’t allowed four or more earned runs in three straight starts since June 2014 while with Detroit. Carlos Rodon (1-3, 4.55) is up for Chicago.


Johnny Cueto is expected to be reinstated from the disabled list and pitch when the Giants open a four-game series against the Cardinals. Cueto was placed on the disabled list May 1 with inflammation in his right elbow. A few days later, he visited Dr. James Andrews Youth Greg Olsen Jersey , who diagnosed him with a strained elbow. Cueto is 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA in five starts this season. The Giants are 41-21 in his starts since he joined the team in 2016.


Angels rookie Jaime Barria will start against AL West-leading Seattle in place of Tyler Skaggs a day after the left-hander went on the DL with a thigh strain. Barria is making his 12th start of the season and has given up two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. Lefty Marco Gonzales (8-5, 3.77) makes his first start since pitching the first complete game of his career in a 4-1 win over Kansas City.


Joe Mauer needs one double to give him 415 in his career, which would break a tie with Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett for the Twins’ franchise record. Minnesota has lost six straight and returns home from a 1-8 trip to play Baltimore, which has the worst record in the majors at 24-61. More good news for the scuffling Twins: Two-time All-Star Ervin Santana (right middle finger surgery) is scheduled to make his next rehab appearance for Class A Fort Myers.

The Los Angeles Angels were 4 1/2 games behind the Seattle Mariners when they opened a three-game series three weeks ago. When the Angels return to Seattle on Tuesday to begin another three-game set, they’ll be 11 games behind the Mariners for the second wild card from the American League.

The Mariners (54-31) swept the Angels the last time they were in town, and Seattle expanded that cushion by going 7-0 last week for their longest winning streak of the season.

The Angels (43-42) are 6-14 since pulling within 3 1/2 games of the Mariners on June 9. They lost to the Minnesota Twins the following day before getting swept June 11-13 in Seattle. Los Angeles has already played six games at Safeco Field this season but has yet to host the Mariners in Anaheim.

If the Angels drop the series opener, they’ll own a .500 record for the first time since the second game of the season.

The scheduled starting pitchers for Tuesday were also matched up on June 11.

Los Angeles left-hander Andrew Heaney (4-5, 3-95 ERA) gave up five runs and seven hits in three innings of the 5-3 loss.

Seattle left-hander Wade LeBlanc (3-0, 3.38) gave up two runs and four hits in five innings in his only career appearance against Seattle.

LeBlanc Womens Greg Olsen Jersey , who made 10 appearances for the Angels in 2014, including three starts, hasn’t experienced a defeat in 11 starts this season, and the Mariners are 8-3 in those games.

The Mariners have also found something special in closer Edwin Diaz, who became the second pitcher in major league history with at least 30 saves and 70 strikeouts before the All-Star break. The other is former Los Angeles Dodgers closer Eric Gagne.

“We’ve had a lot of valuable players on our team,” Seattle manager Scott Servais told reporters after a 1-0 win over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. “But winning the close games, it creates the type of atmosphere that’s going on at Safeco Field right now and the city and getting our fan base psyched again.”

Heaney also struggled in his most recent outing, allowing six runs and eight hits in 3 1/3 innings of a 9-6 loss on Wednesday at the Boston Red Sox, but he did not absorb the loss.

He’s 1-2 in four career starts against the Mariners with a 4.42 ERA.

The Angels lost two more pitchers to injury on their current road trip.

Jake Jewell sustained a broken right fibula against the Red Sox on Wednesday. The rookie right-hander was making his third major-league appearance when he fell awkwardly while trying to cover home plate on a wild pitch. He had surgery on Friday in Los Angeles.

On Saturday Youth JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , the Angels announced left-hander John Lamb would undergo Tommy John surgery, the fourth pitcher for Los Angeles to have the season-ending surgery this year.

Los Angeles could soon be adding some offensive punch, however.

Shohei Ohtani, the rookie two-way player who is also out with an elbow injury, has been taking live batting practice and running the bases recently, putting him on pace to resume designated hitter duties this week.

“He’s starting to do get through that progression,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia told FOX Sports West on Sunday.

Angels first baseman/designated hitter Jefry Marte is also close to returning from a left wrist injury.

Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski sent New England

#115 liny195 » 27.12.2018, 06:03

fans into a panic this offseason when they hinted at retiring rather than returning to the Patriots in 2018.On Sunday Womens DeForest Buckner Jersey , it was the rest of the NFL watching in fear.Brady threw for 277 yards and three touchdowns, hitting Gronkowski for 123 yards and a score to lead the defending AFC champions to a 27-20 victory over the Houston Texans. The reigning NFL MVP found Gronkowski seven times, including a 21-yard touchdown three plays after Deshaun Watson fumbled a handoff at the Texans 19 on Houston's first offensive play ."It's very important that they came out and played the way they did. They're our leaders," said Phillip Dorsett, who had seven catches, including a touchdown. "When they play well, they give an adrenaline boost to the rest of the team."Brady, 41, clashed with the team he's led to five Super Bowl titles in the past year over the treatment of his personal fitness guru and the plans to elevate backup Jimmy Garoppolo to starter. In February, after throwing for 500 yards in a Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Brady was coy about returning this season.The Patriots dangled Gronkowski as trade bait this summer before agreeing instead to sweeten his contract with $4.3 million in reachable incentives. Gronkowski reportedly threatened to retire if traded."I'm just glad to be here Youth Brock Coyle Jersey , glad to be part of this team, glad to be part of this organization," he said. "All that talk, all that stuff, I would love to put it in the past."Brady also found James White for a touchdown, completing 26 of 39 passes in all; he also had an interception on a pass that was tipped at the line of scrimmage. It was Gronkowski's 31st career regular-season or playoff game of 100 yards or more, tying Tony Gonzalez's NFL record."We've been playing together for a long time," Brady said. "I know his body language. I know his ability to run and what routes. He can do it. He can do really all the routes. It's just a matter of giving him a chance, and it came with a big touchdown today."Watson, who missed the final nine games last season with a torn right ACL, completed 17 of 35 passes for 176 yards Womens Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , one score and one interception. He struggled to move the team in the first 40 minutes, managing just a pair of field-goal drives before Alfred Blue ran it in from 1 yard to make it 24-13 in the last two minutes of the third period.A muffed punt by New England's Riley McCarron with under five minutes left set up Watson's 5-yard TD pass to Bruce Ellington and cut the deficit to 27-20. But after getting the ball back at their 1 with 43 seconds left, the Texans failed to reach midfield."I think it was terrible, on my part," Watson said. "I just feel like you can put the 'L' on me."With Julian Edelman serving a four-game suspension, Dorsett caught seven passes for 66 yards, including a 4-yard TD pass in the closing seconds of the first half to make it 21-6. White had four receptions for 38 yards, including a 12-yard score.Lamar Miller ran 20 times for 98 yards for Houston, which welcomed Watson, defensive lineman J.J. Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus back from injuries. Watt had two quarterback hurries, but D.J. Reader had the only two sacks of Brady Womens Solomon Thomas Jersey , both late."It's good to play a full game to know it lasts, to know it holds up," said Watt, a three-time defensive player of the year. "I didn't think about it once. So, that's all you can ask for."It was Watson who felt the pressure the rest of the game.The second-year quarterback, who threw for 301 yards in a 36-33 loss to New England last year in his second NFL start, botched a handoff with Miller in the first quarter, setting up the Patriots up for their first touchdown. In the second quarter, Watson inexplicably chucked the ball into the end zone for a double-covered Vyncint Smith on a second-and-3 from the New England 42.Stephon Gilmore brought it down for the interception.BALL CONTROLThe Patriots also had trouble with turnovers.Brady had an interception in the first quarter on a throw tipped by defensive lineman Angelo Blackson and brought in by Tyrann Mathieu at the Patriots 17. The Texans went backward 7 yards before Ka'imi Fairbairn's 42-yard field goal made it 7-3.Gronkowski also fumbled in the third quarter after a 25-yard reception across the middle. Mathieu recovered, but after advancing to the New England 17, the Texans gave the ball back on downs. The muffed punt by McCarron gave the Texans one last chance.INJURIESTexans: DE Christian Covington injured his thigh in the first quarter.

Leave it to Reuben Foster to lighten up the mood a little when he spoke about his confidence in quarterback C.J. Beathard who would be taking over as the leader of the offense. Even Dwayne Johnson, “The Rock,” took notice and replied: Foster was obviously pretty excited that The Rock reached out to him: It even became the Esurance quote of the week: George Kittle even used the quote as a caption for his Instagram post: Along with Kittle and Foster, Earl Mitchell and Garry Gilliam are both wrestling fans. Gilliam even has the Universal title belt from Monday Night Raw on display in his locker. Mitchell spent some time during the offseason at the WWE training facility learning how to be a talent scout, watching interviews, and observing auditions. Mitchell said it’s something that he might be interested in pursuing once his football career comes to an end. While there may only be a few wrestling fans on the team, it’s a sure things that there are quite a few fans of The Rock. Maybe they can lure him out to Levi’s for an appearance, it would be a huge success!

We’re still a long ways away from the San Francisco 49ers’ 2018
season ending Youth Weston Richburg Jersey , but there’s a chance things could shake up for 2019 if Nick Mullens continues playing lights out. We’ve stressed her that it’s just one game. And a game against the Oakland Raiders. Who have one of the worst defenses in the league. Still, the numbers Nick Mullens put up for his first NFL start are impressive, no matter who he’s playing. He still has several games to play to prove his stuff, but it was a great first start. That of course leads us to C.J. Beathard. Kyle Shanahan has been high on Beathard. I’ve written that while he wasn’t the best quarterback, he may have been the best to run Shanahan’s offense. I might have been very wrong with that statement. Even with the 49ers making the decision to go with Mullens, at least for one more game, Shanahan has had praise for his other quarterback: If Mullens’ play continues onwards, the 49ers will have some decisions to make regarding the quarterback position. I doubt any of them will involve Jimmy Garoppolo directly—he’s in there for the long haul. The backup position though will be a question mark. Do the 49ers put Mullens as No. 2 and release Beathard? Or if Mullens plays well do the 49ers try and shop him and that team-friendly, UDFA contract? Unless if Mullens were to severely regress, I’d bet the 49ers would put him at the No. 2 spot behind Garoppolo and then try to shop Beathard for a late pick or release him. From there, Shanahan may bring in another UDFA to take the third string QB and be on the practice squad. If Mullens were to play lights out and be in a sweepstakes-type role for 2019 trades, I still don’t know if the 49ers would keep Beathard around. Not for his play White Arik Armstead Jersey , but for the fact they’ve moved on from him for other quarterbacks two years straight. First it was for Garoppolo in 2017, then in 2018 they went with Mullens. While Shanahan can praise Beathard all he wants, benching quarterbacks isvery dangerous and can oftentimes hurt relationships. While Beathard understood the Garoppolo promotion last year, getting bumped by the third stringer may cause resentment. There’s no evidence or hints of any of this happening—it’s all speculation, but it’s something to keep in mind. What do you think the 49ers quarterback situation will be into 2019?49ers make 3 changes to unofficial depth chart, have one release to make The San Francisco 49ers PR department released their unofficial depth chart for Week 3 vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, and there are some changes of note. The key to this is the “un” in unofficial because this has little to no input from the coaching staff.This week’s depth chart includes George Kittle moved into the No. 1 tight end spot over Garrett Celek. This is not breaking news, but catching up with where things stand. Additionally, Matt Breida had previously been listed as the No. 1 running back, and Alfred Morris was listed as the No. 2 running back. It is now listed as Breida OR Morris. The 49ers are using a committee approach, so that make sense.This week’s most notable change is Reuben Foster added back in as the starting MIKE linebacker. Malcolm Smith is still listed as the WILL linebacker, but we don’t know if he will be healthy enough to play in Week 3 http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-k_waun-williams-jersey , and even if he is, Fred Warner might supplant him on the depth chart.What is more important for the time being is who will be released to make room for Foster. While suspended, Foster did not count against the 53-man roster limit. The 49ers have to now figure out who to release in his place. The easiest choice would be linebacker Terence Garvin. The 49ers added him to the roster after Brock Coyle was placed on injured reserve, and he played 15 special teams snaps in Week 2. Even if Smith is not healthy enough to play, it makes sense to release Garvin. Foster would replace Elijah Lee in the starting lineup, and Lee would replace Garvin on special teams.49ers offensive depth chart, Week 3 vs. ChiefsPositionFirstSecondThirdPositionFirstSecondThird49ers defensive depth chart, Week 3 vs. ChiefsPositionFirstSecondThirdPositionFirstSecondThird49ers special teams depth chart, Week 3 vs. ChiefsPositionFirstSecondThirdPositionFirstSecondThird

With Marquise Goodwin being ruled out for Sunday's
game against Detroit Womens Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Dante Pettis is slated for his first NFL start.Coach Kyle Shanahan made that announcement Friday after Goodwin missed the entire week of practice with a bruised thigh suffered in last week's loss at Minnesota.Pettis, a second-round pick out of Washington who caught a 22-yard touchdown pass against the Vikings, will start opposite veteran Pierre Garcon. Another rookie, seventh-round pick Richie James Jr., will be added to the 53-man active roster after being inactive in the opener.Trent Taylor and Kendrick Bourne are likely to round out the receivers rotation in the 49ers' home opener against the Lions.Pettis, the son of former Gold Glove outfielder Gary Pettis, is a colorful character who sports dyed blue hair. He also unveiled quite the touchdown dance against Minnesota, making like a cat licking its paws and cleaning its head, after he hauled in his first career scoring pass from Jimmy Garoppolo."I think he's very relaxed and very confident being himself all the time," Shanahan said. "That's why he's OK with his cat celebration. Stuff doesn't bother him. He is who he is. He goes out there that first game, I don't think it was too big for him."Things remain unsettled for San Francisco at right guard, with Joshua Garnett (dislocated toe) out for Sunday and Mike Person (foot strain) questionable. Should Person be unavailable, Shanahan said undrafted rookie Najee Toran will draw the start. It's quite a rise up the depth chart for Toran, who played at UCLA but was not invited to the NFL combine before eventually signing with the 49ers as a free agent.Person will be a game-day decision.Toran said his height (6-foot-2) always was a concern for those evaluating him."Everybody had the typical answers: 'You're kind of small,' and things like that Womens Solomon Thomas Jersey ," Toran said. "To me it's not a big deal. I just look at it like my heart's the size of you name it. My heart's big. That's what's going to take me a long way, which it has."Toran briefly switched from the offensive to defensive line at UCLA before settling in as a starting guard and earning honorable mention All Pac-12 honors as a senior. If he plays Sunday, it won't be his first game at Levi's Stadium. The Bruins played Nebraska in the 2015 Foster Farms Bowl at the 49ers' home venue.In other injury news for San Francisco, free safety Adrian Colbert and linebacker Malcolm Smith remain questionable with hamstring injuries. Should Colbert be unavailable, Jimmie Ward may slide over from cornerback to take his place. Elijah Lee likely would start in place of Smith, who has been sidelined since the preseason opener.NOTES: Lions coach Matt Patricia was asked Friday about an NFL Network report that suggested some of his players have been displeased with his handling of the team. "I don't really acknowledge outside rumors or gossip or anything that doesn't have anything to (do) with our football team," Patricia said on a conference call with Bay Area media. "We're a tight football team. We do a lot of great conversing inside this building and have open conversation about things that are bothering us."Matt Breida among group of 49ers sitting out Wednesday practice [UPDATED] The San Francisco 49ers returned to practice on Wednesday, and they are short a few players in the early going. The team will release their formal injury report in a couple hours, but in the meantime, we know some players sitting out. Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced that Matt Breida (knee) would not practice. Eric Branch offered up this rundown of additional players not practicing.The team has two more days of practice, which will give us a better handle on both players. Breida told Chris Biderman he’ll be in cleats and shells today, but is unsure about his status for Week 4. He did say he wants to keep his status as the league’s leading rusher into Week 5. He is currently tied with Ezekiel Elliott atop the leaderboard with 274 yards.Alfred Morris and Raheem Mostert will split up the work while Breida is sidelined. The 49ers have Jeff Wilson on their practice squad, and if Breida ends up unlikely to play this Sunday, we could see them promote Wilson. I suppose they could just go with two running backs and Kyle Juszczyk, but that would not seem like the wisest course of action given the lack of depth.The Thursday practice is when we really start to get an idea of who might actually miss Sunday’s game. Mike Person is likely going to be getting Wednesdays off for the foreseeable future Womens Dante Pettis Jersey , but I think he likely plays on Sunday. Jaquiski Tartt and Adrian Colbert are two of the bigger question marks where we know they’re hurt, but their status for Sunday is up in the air.We’ll have the full injury report posted in here when it arrives.Fooch’s update: Here’s the full injury reportDNP: S Adrian Colbert (hip), G Joshua Garnett (toe), G Mike Person (knee), CB Richard Sherman (calf), T Joe Staley (not injury related), S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder)Limited: RB Matt Breida (knee), WR Marquise Goodwin (quadricep)Full: CB Ahkello Witherspoon (ankle, hip)Chargers injury reportDNP: WR Keenan Allen (knee), T Joe Barksdale (knee), DE Joey Bosa (foot)Limited: WR Travis Benjamin (foot)Full: T Russell Okung (knee), RB Derek Watt (thumb)

Giants co-owner John Mara spoke to reporters at Tuesday’s
owners meeting and he held court on two topics having to do with the 1-5 teams that have been discussed often in recent weeks.One was wide receiver Odell Beckham‘s ESPN interview and Mara took the stance that he’d prefer Beckham “do a little more playing and a little less talking.” The other was quarterback Eli Manning‘s play so far in the 2018 season.Many have seen Manning’s play as a continuation of the struggles of recent seasons and confirmation that the team should have done more to find an alternative option for the 2018 season. Mara was steadfast about Manning being the right choice to run the offense all offseason and hasn’t changed his tune despite the generally horrid results thus far.“We still believe in him Authentic Saquon Barkley Jersey , but everybody needs to do their jobs in order for us to be successful, and right now that鈥檚 not happening … I know he鈥檚 the punching bag right now, but a lot of guys need to play better when you鈥檙e 1-5,” Mara said, via Dan Graziano of ESPN.com.Mara gave former head coach Ben McAdoo the green light to bench Manning last season before reversing course and firing McAdoo after Geno Smith started and lost a game to the Raiders. He said Tuesday, via Judy Battista of NFL Media, that it is head coach Pat Shurmur’s call if they are going to make a change this season, but last year’s history suggests that Shurmur may be treading lightly when it comes to addressing the quarterback spot. Sometimes you just plain get lucky. With the top priority in the NFL’s waiver claim hierarchy, the New York Giants might just have gotten very lucky on Wednesday when they were awarded guard Jamon Brown off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams.When the Giants got Brown from the Rams I got this message from a long-time NFL talent evaluator:“Big sleeper - expect him to take over right guard before season ends.”The Giants, with 33-year-old John Greco having taken over at right guard for the benched Patrick Omameh, snapped up the 25-year-old Brown. In all likelihood http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/saquon-barkley-jersey , the 6-foot-4, 340-pound 2015 third-round pick who lost his after starting the season by serving a two-game suspension, will be in the Giants’ starting lineup before the season is over.The four-year veteran is in the final year of his rookie contract, so the Giants get the last half of the season to determine whether or not Brown can help them going forward.To learn more about Brown, I turned to Brandon Bate of SB Nation’s Rams website, Turf Show Times. Here is what Bate told me.Ed: Why did he not get his job back?Brandon: Put quite simply, this had very little to do with Jamon - who started every game at right guard for the Rams in 2017 - and everything to do with the fact that his replacement, Austin Blythe, excelled while he was sidelined (suspension). It was a question the coaching staff received almost immediately following their Week 2 win, when Jamon was scheduled to return, and it was a situation where they stuck with Blythe based on his level of play in the first two weeks. Had Blythe struggled http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/patrick-omameh-jersey , the Rams (and their fans) couldn’t have been more pleased to see him return. Ed: How surprising was it to see the Rams let him go? Why do you believe they did so?Brandon: Very surprised. I think that most anyone who follows the team close enough realized that cap room was going to have to be made in order to sign Dante Fowler -- but I’m not sure anyone figured that would come via Brown’s release. The Rams may have a great O-line in 2018, but it wasn’t always that way...so seeing a solid player walk came as a surprise to just about every fan, I’d imagine. As for “why,” I think it’s primarily the aforementioned level of play from Blythe, but also a growing confidence in some of their younger depth players along the offensive front. Trust that letting him go wasn’t an easy decision by any stretch though. Ed: Is he a starting-caliber player who could be a part of the solution to rebuilding the Giants offensive line?Brandon: Absolutely. I know the Giants have struggled up front but they got a good one today. I’m not sure how long it’ll take the Giants to get him up to speed, but he’s a starting-caliber player, for sure. Going into this season, I expected him to be making every start at RG for the Rams, as he did in 2017. Don’t let his release, or the suspension, fool you. He’s a solid player http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/kareem-martin-jersey , and I’m sure this wasn’t an easy decision for the staff. Sean McVay said as much leading up to Week 3. When asked about Blythe’s play and Brown’s impending return, his response: “We feel like we’ve got two starting caliber players in Austin and Jamon.”Ed: Give us a scouting report. Strengths? Weaknesses?Brandon: He’s struggled in the run game at times, but has proven to be a very strong pass blocker. To be fair though, the entire right side of the Rams’ line was struggling in run blocking at one time. And that’s not to say he’s a poor run blocker, because he’s certainly come a long way since his rookie year. Take PFF grades for what they are, but if you’re buying what they’re selling, Brown ranked 11th out of all offensive guards as a pass blocker in the final three weeks of the 2017 season (in which he allowed 0 QB pressures). You’re certainly more familiar with what the Giants are working with at guard, but Jamon is a very well-rounded player, and one worthy of a starting spot on just about any NFL roster. Ed: I know he had the suspension. What kind of person is he? What should we know about him away from the field?The suspension, like his release, was a surprise to just about everybody -- so don’t let that alarm you. Jamon appears to have been a great teammate http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/aldrick-rosas-jersey , and I’m guessing he’ll be missed by both staff and players alike. A quick glance at his twitter account will tell you that he’s a spiritual man, a positive person, and a philanthropist. Honestly, he seems like one of the nicest people on Earth. McVay spoke on his release on Wednesday. I think he summed it up nicely: “But really, what a class act...unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out this year, but can’t say enough good things about just the quality of the human being. He’s got a lot of good tape out there and we’re hopeful that he catches on and has a long, good career ahead of him. But, that was tough.”

Giants-Eagles: 5 things to watch as Giants try to save their season
“Im my opinion this is the game. We gotta win this game in order to feel like you still have a chance in the division.”That’s Michael Strahan New York Giants T-Shirt , legendary, New York Giants Hall of Fame defensive end, on the importance of Thursday night’s NFC East at MetLife Stadium against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.This game is absolutely the season-defining one for the Giants. This game will determine whether or not the Giants can be competitive in the mediocre NFC East or if they will simply spend the rest of the season playing out the string and building toward a hopefully brighter future.They know it, with tight end Evan Engram saying Tuesday that players are “well aware” of the standings.Here is Saquon Barkley on tonight’s game:“I think everyone’s goal is to win a Super Bowl and that’s still in play and in my opinion, if you ask me, like you said I think we’re a game behind in the division and I know I haven’t been in the NFL for a long time, but I think if you win your division, you automatically go into the playoffs, so everything like I said before, that coach Shurmur said a couple weeks ago, everything that we want in our season is still there.”Here are your NFC East standings entering tonight’s game:1 - Washington Redskins (2-2)2 - Dallas Cowboys (2-3)3 - Philadelphia Eagles (2-3)4 - New York Giants (1-4)Shurmur told the team’s official website that looking at the standings “just reinforces that you just keep playing because you never know. You never know where this thing is going to go, so you just can’t get down on yourself, you can’t worry about what’s happened in the past. You just keep worrying about getting better and put a winning effort on the field.”Here are five things to watch tonight as the Giants try to make themselves relevant in 2018.Can Olivier Vernon make an impact?The Giants best EDGE player will make his season debut Thursday night, and the Giants desperately need him to give them something. The pass rush has been non-existent for the Giants this season. They have a league-worst six sacks and their Adjusted Sack Rate of 3.6 percent is also last in the league. In the Pro Football Focus grading system, the Giants have the league’s 29th-ranked pass rush score. If the Giants are ever going to generate an impactful pass rush this is a game where it could happen. The Eagles have given up 17 sacks and have an Adjusted Sack Rate allowed of 8.4 percent, worse than the struggling Giants offensive line (16 sacks New York Giants Hats , 7.8 percent).The Giants have had virtually no pass rush the past two weeks. If that’s the case Thursday night, the Eagles’ struggling offense could get healthy.Dealing with those tight endsEarlier this week, Mark Schofield looked at the myriad ways the Eagles use tight ends in their passing attack. The Eagles have thrown more passes (82) to their tight ends, Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, than any other team in the league. Ertz leads all tight ends with 58 targets.Historically, tight ends have cause the Giants trouble in the passing game. This season, Football Outsiders DVOA ratings actually have the Giants ranked seventh in the league in covering tight ends.Can the Giants control Ertz and Goedert? If they can, that could go a long way toward slowing down the Philadelphia offense.Which offense will we see?Will we see the empty the playbook, get the ball down the field Giants who finally cracked the 30-point barrier Sunday against the Carolina Panthers? Or, will we see the Giants revert to the checkdown-oriented complete a lot of passes that go nowhere team that has been so frustrating to watch.The play of the offensive line vs. and Eagles front that includes Fletcher Cox, Michael Bennett, Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett and Chris Long will be critical. The Giants have been improving in pass protection in recent weeks, with coach Pat Shurmur telling the team’s official website they were “much better” in that area vs. the Panthers.The Giants could have advantages in the passing game against the Philadelphia secondary. Brandon Lee Gowton told us that the Giants targeted cornerback Jalen Mills 21 times in Week 3 of last season. They will probably go after Mills again, if Eli Manning is given time.Where the Giants have really struggled is in run blocking. The Giants have the league’s highest number of negative running plays, a stat that needs to change to both keep the Giants on schedule and maximize the talents of Saquon Barkley.Special teamsCan the Giants avoid the Curse of the Game-Ending 60+ yard field goal?” That bit them last year against Jake Elliott and the Eagles (61 yards) and last week when Graham Gano hit a game-ending 63-yarder. Seriously New York Giants Hoodie , though, the Giants do have some things on special teams to figure out. Will Odell Beckham Jr. return punts again? Will it be Jawill Davis? Placekicker Aldrick Rosas is apparently good to go after being on the injury report earlier in the week with a sore quad. Those throwback uniformsThis isn’t really a thing to watch as much as it is, in my view, a really cool thing to look at, The Giants will be in all-white throwback uniforms with “Giants” on their helmets rather than the lowercase “ny.” Gotta admit, I love it. Odell Beckham Jr. was, of course, asked on Friday for his reaction to New York Giants co-owner John Mara saying this week that he wanted “a little more playing and a little less talking” from Beckham.“I respect and value his opinion, obviously, so that’s what we’re gonna do,” Beckham said. “Focus on Atlanta right now.”Beckham said he and Mara have “talked but we haven’t talked.”“We need to start winning games,” Beckham said. “I want to win, to, just as bad as everybody else. I just want to win.”Beckham said he “laughed” when he heard the idea that players in the locker room are “frustrated” with Eli Manning.“I don’t think that’s the case. I think they’re frustrated that we’re 1-5. We’re losing. Everybody want to win, that’s really it. I don’t think that ever was really the case.”Asked directly for thoughts on Manning, Beckham said:“I think we’re 1-5. We need to start winning games. Everybody needs to pick it up. I need to play better. I can’t say that I’ve had my best games Customized New York Giants Jerseys , can’t say that I’ve done enough to help this team win. I need to do more. Everybody needs to do more.”Can Manning still win games?“Every time I get in the huddle I say ‘take me home 10.’ To me he carries weight because he’s been there, he knows how to win, he’s the most prepared of anybody I’ve ever seen,” Beckham said.Beckham didn’t confirm or deny that he had been fined by the team for his ESPN interview with Josina Anderson.“It is what is is,” Beckham said. “You just take it on the chin.”Beckham said the non-football headlines were “unfortunate.”“I think the extra-curricular comes with losing,” he said. “We know what it’s like when you’re losing, especially when you’re losing here.”Beckham did continue to insist he had no regrets about anything that has happened.“I’ve said this all the time, never have any regrets. At one point in time, it was exactly what you wanted,” he said. “It is what it is. I don’t believe in everything’s a test or anything like that. Everything’s an opportunity to learn and grow, that’s really it. There’s no more tests. The testing’s over. You’ve prepared for the test, you’ve studied for it. It’s just an opportunity to learn and grow.”

OAKLAND RAIDERS (6-10)New faces: Coach Jon Gruden

Hall.Key losses: Coach Jack Del Rio http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alec-ogletree-jersey , WR Michael Crabtree, RT Marshall Newhouse, LB NaVorro Bowman, CB TJ Carrie, CB Sean Smith, CB David Amerson, P Marquette King, S Obi Melifonwu.Strengths: Few teams invested more in interior of offensive line than Raiders with center Rodney Hudson, guards Kelechi Osemele and Gabe Jackson. Gruden seeks power-running offense with Marshawn Lynch behind trio. Successful run game could open up play-action passing game for QB Derek Carr. Carr seeks bounce back from down season plagued by back injury, unimaginative offense.Weaknesses: Secondary full of questions for coordinator Guenther. CB Gareon Conley struggled to stay healthy since being drafted in first round in 2017. Melvin had strong season with Indianapolis last year but only got one-year, prove-it contract. Safeties have mix of unproven young players and aging ones. 2016 first-round pick Karl Joseph yet to develop into playmaker. Reggie Nelson brought back at age 34 but seemed to be step slow last year. Marcus Gilchrist provides versatility with ability to cover slot.Fantasy Players To Watch: WR Amari Cooper. Considered top receiver heading into last year. Cooper had career lows with 48 catches for 680 yards in 2017. Raiders believe he can get back to 1,000-yard level from first two seasons. Red-zone favorite Crabtree let go this offseason, possibly creating more TD chances for Cooper.Vegas Says: Super Bowl 35-1. Over/under wins 8.Expectations: Return of Gruden brings optimism to Raiders fans who have had just two winning seasons since he left following 2001. Fans turned out in big numbers in preseason despite team getting ready to move to Las Vegas in 2020. Questions remain about how Gruden will fare after nine seasons away from sideline. He seeks return to power football and old-school styles successful in first stint. Gruden likely adding new modern wrinkles to offense as well. Best move might be hiring of Guenther, which gives Raiders first proven DC in years and could provide big boost to defense, especially if star edge rusher Khalil Mack ends holdout.

As week three came to a close on Monday Night Football
www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com , the Tampa Bay Buccaneers endured their first loss of the season. The game had many ups and downs and reeked of the team as many have come to know it over the last few seasons. Penalties, no-calls, ghost-calls, turnovers and a late rally that fell short best summarizes the game void of detail. Now it’s time for some post game reactions. The offense lost some of it’s early season mojo. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for another 400 yards and as Gil Arcia wrote here, entered the record books as the first quarterback to toss for 400 yards in three consecutive games. Three was number of the game for Fitzpatrick as he threw 3 interceptions (2 of which can be pinned on him) along with 3 touchdown passes. Yards aside, this was the version Fitzpatrick that most of the football world envisioned the Buccaneers getting while Jameis Winston served his suspension. The high risk-high reward gunslinger mentality finally cost the team a bit in this one though it was far from being solely on the shoulders of the teams signal caller. Following a Justin Evans interception, Peyton Barber got the offense going with a couple good runs to set up a touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Cameron Brate to give the Buccaneers and early lead. Barber would have little to no success after this drive, finishing the game with a total of 33 yards on 8 carries. Rodgers added 2 carries for -1 yards, Humphries carried one time for 4 yards and Fitzpatrick scrambled his way to 27 yards on 5 carries. Barber had the biggest carry of the night, going for 18 yards. Without the 18 yard scamper Tampa Bay Buccaneers T-Shirt , Barber carried 7 times for 15 yards. The receiving core including tight ends worked hard in this one led by Mike Evans and O.J. Howard. Evans had 137 yards and a touchdown on 6 receptions including two amazing grabs shown below. Howard pulled in 6 passes for 72 yards and Chris Godwin had 4 catches for 74 yards and a touchdown. Godwin had his struggles including a ill timed fumble and several key drops, one of which was in the end-zone. The team was unable to get DeSean Jackson involved much, finishing with 3 catches for 37 yards. Brate got his first bit of real action of the season catching 3 of 4 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown. The offensive line again did an overall solid job protecting Fitzpatrick but a missed assignment directly led to a Fitzpatrick interception. Run blocking was below average yet again, struggling to consistently open holes albeit they did succeed in allowing Barber to spring for a good gain on the second drive. As a whole, the offense did enough to win the football game. The turnovers, all four of them, are inexcusable and need to get under control. The pick six from Fitzpatrick (shown below) just can’t happen.The play calling was questionable in a few key moments but ultimately in this gamethe offense as a whole didn’t execute to the level that they are capable of.Defensive backfield got gashed and gap discipline late was an issue. The defensive line had a solid game led by veteran free-agent acquisition Jason Pierre-Paul. JPP did receive a personal foul for a hit to the head of Big Ben that was quite the acting job the by quarterback to sell the force of contact, but he also contributed 2 sacks to give him 3 on the season, one off the league lead in sacks. Pierre-Paul’s 3 sacks are more than any Buccaneer defensive end had a season ago. Vinny Curry and Gerald McCoy combined to split a sack which you won’t hear much about due to the sack that didn’t happen late in the 4th quarter by Gerald McCoy. On the play in question, McCoy nearly gets to Big Ben but was held on the play and in turn Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hats , the Steelers ended up extending the drive and went on to win the ballgame. The linebackers were swarming but a few miscues including a poor angle and a vacated zone by Kwon and David let to a few big Steeler plays across the middle. Lavonte David did have an otherwise stellar game including a huge stop early in the ballgame that was followed by a Pierre-Paul sack to close out a Steeler drive in the first half. David led the team with 9 total tackles. The defensive backs would best be served split into two groups, veterans and young guns. The young guns, including Justin Evans, Carl Davis, M.J. Stewart and Jordan Whitehead played well. The veteran tandem of Brent Grimes and Chris “Highlight” Conte however did not. In Conte’s defense, he had little to do with the overall game as he was injured shortly after being demolished by Vance McDonald in this clip here. Justin Evans had himself a solid ball game against the Steelers that included this early interception of Big Ben on the Steelers second drive. Evans did play a big role in the Steelers scoring on a pass to Antonio Brown that first saw Brent Grimes playing off coverage and whiff on the tackle attempt. The biggest story of this game for the defensive backs was Carl Davis and how well he played, in particular when guarding Antonio Brown, versus how rusty a game it was for Brent Grimes who struggled in coverage early and seemed to be debating on whether or not to tackle the Steelers running back late in this ballgame. Also of note corner wise, Ryan Smith was noticeably absent from the defense just a week removed from the game of his life. I wrote a bit on that here. Special Teams play. Catanzaro made all 5 of his kicks which included 2 field goals in this game. Punter Brian Anger worked in three punts totaling 126 yards that included a 62 yarder and one punt inside the 20. Kicking game wise, the special teams units did their job. Kick return wise the Buccaneers struggled aside from an electric punt return touchdown from DeSean Jackson that was brought back due to a bad holding call against Isaiah Johnson. Shaun Wilson struggled returning kicks on his 5 attempts Tampa Bay Buccaneers Hoodie , netting a big gain of only 17 yards and finishing with 68 yards returning in total. It may be time to question if Wilson is cut out for the job after a few questionable decisions and his spot potentially hindering the availability of Ronald Jones suiting up as one of the final 46 going forward. The wrap-up. The Buccaneers nearly went 3-0 to start the season and that in and of itself is incredible given the early on expectations. With the team now 2-1 and gearing up to take on Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears, it’s time for this front office and the coaches to not let one loss roll into another. This team desperately needs to turn things around this season and the start they are off to is just what they needed. Fitzpatrick saw the magic wear off a good bit on Monday night and how he starts this next ballgame will very easily dictate his immediate future along with Jameis Winston’s. The offense is in prime position to continue putting up big plays and points. The defense needs to step it up in all phases. The loss was tough but it was not a back breaker. Fans should be proud of how this team battled back and the players should look to build upon their efforts. As always, Go Bucs! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns have released their final injury reports prior to Sunday afternoon’s game. Unfortunately for the Bucs, Gerald McCoy and Vinny Curry have been ruled out due to injury. McCoy injured his calf during last week’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons while Curry’s ankle injury is something that recently surfaced on the injury report. With two of Tampa Bay’s top defensive linemen down after Mike Smith was ousted earlier in the week, it’ll be interesting to see how this unit responds against a capable Browns offense. On the other side, Cleveland will be missing two starters on defense in Joe Schobert and E.J. Gaines. Check out the full injury report below.

the Browns are still just 4-6-1.But in the AFC www.thebrownsfootballauthentic.com , they’re still alive in the push for the postseason, and interim coach Gregg Williams wasn’t afraid to tell his team that.鈥淚 showed them who was alive,鈥?Williams told Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America. 鈥淎nd we are. I also showed them the remaining teams on our schedule, and how five of the six were still alive. I wanted them to see we鈥檙e in it.鈥淏ut my big thing is: One day at a time. One practice at a time. One game at a time. One meeting at a time. And they鈥檝e listened well. They stay in the moment.鈥漌illiams’ point is a valid one, though all the teams they’re playing down the stretch are in the same spot. And they’re still a game and a half out of the AFC’s sixth seed. But rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield is playing smartly, showing a sense of the moment.鈥淚 don鈥檛 want to put too much pressure on him Cleveland Browns T-Shirt ,鈥?Williams said. 鈥淏ut I鈥檝e had the luxury of being on teams with excellent quarterbacks, and I鈥檝e gone against Hall of Fame quarterbacks in my 29 years coaching.

It was rough watching each of their hopes be dampened. We learned that Assistant GM Eliot Wolf is the guy with the not-fun responsibility of calling players up to tell them to come in, informing them of their release. They also then get a quick last talk with head coach Hue Jackson.Announcing the Backup QBHave you ever wondered how a coach tells his No. 2 and No. 3 quarterbacks which of them will be the official “backup?” Hue Jackson sat Drew Stanton and Baker Mayfield down in his office together.

Browns make 14 roster cuts to get down to 72 players
Friday afternoon Authentic Myles Garrett Jersey , the Cleveland Browns trimmed their roster from 86 players to 72 players by announcing the following transactions:OFFENSIVE PLAYERS CUTQB Brogan RobackWR Jeff Janis - Contract terminatedWR C.J. Board - Waived/injuredTE Stephen BaggettOL Anthony FabianoOL Avery GennesyOL Fred LauinaDEFENSIVE PLAYERS CUTDL Jeremy FaulkDL Lenny Jones - Waived/injuredDL Blaine WoodsonLB Justin Currie - Waived/injuredCB Christian BoutteS Elijah CampbellS Derron SmithREACTIONTwo players were cut who we had making our 53-man roster: WR Jeff Janis and LB Justin Currie (although Currie was waived/injured, meaning he could end up on IR). Neither one is a surprise cut per se. Janis was originally signed as a special teams ace, but a few younger players won out in favor of him this camp.The team will need to make 19 more cuts before the 4 PM ET deadline on Saturday. Don’t forget to follow our live roster cuts tracker! The Cleveland Browns loss on Sunday was truly an ugly affair.But it could have been much worse.Quarterback Baker Mayfield injured his ankle when he slipped on the first-down marker at the end of a scramble in the first quarter. Even though he did not miss a play, the ankle was noticeably bothering Mayfield throughout the rest of the game. Luckily for Mayfield and the Browns Jarvis Landry Jersey Elite , the injury does not appear to be serious, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:How much the ankle injury bothered Mayfield during the game is unknown, but he did have the worst day of his short NFL career as he completed just 47.8 percent of his passes, tossed two interceptions http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey , took five sacks and never looked like the Mayfield that electrified Browns fans the past few weeks.Mayfield did not blame the injury on his performance, saying he was “good” in the post-game press conference, and head coach Hue Jackson said he did not believe that “it impacted him to where he could not play,” but it was clear that something was off all day with the offense. And it is fair to wonder if White Kevin Zeitler Jersey , once the Browns fell behind 35-6 in the third quarter, it may have been a good idea to sit Mayfield for the rest of the game to avoid doing further damage to his ankle.Hopefully it turns out that Mayfield is truly just suffering from “soreness” and won’t be forced to miss any time.

Hayes sacked Derek Carr on third down...”Browns suffer total team loss to Raiders, get no help from refs Clear and obvious, what a wonderful phrase. It means absolutely nothing to NFL officials, apparently.Whether it’s poor officiating, a colossal defensive meltdown, or a rash of second-half turnovers and confusingly stupid and increasingly conservative play-calling, there’s more than enough blame to dish out for the Cleveland Browns’ 45-42 loss to the Oakland Raiders.With the loss, the Browns have still not won a Sunday football game since their Week 14 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Dec. 13, 2015. That’s over 1,000 days ago. Yes, coach Hue Jackson is still winless on Sundays.But they certainly had their chances on this Sunday. They blew 10-point, 14-point http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-emmanuel-ogbah-jersey , and eight-point—with under a minute to play—leads to give the Raiders a shot at winning in overtime. And win the Raiders did while surviving the Browns’ big-play second-half onslaught.And yes, the referees, one of the most experienced crews in the league led by chief Walt Anderson, did not do the Browns any favors in Oakland. They overturned what looked like Carlos Hyde gaining first-down yardage on 3rd-and-short, and the game should have ended.Here’s the standard of review for replays, according to Rule 15, Sect. 2, Art. 3 of the NFL’s 2018 Rulebook:You can cry foul right now, and you should. Scream it from the highest mountain you can climb. Call the NFL offices like you did when the Browns moved to Baltimore. But none of that’s going to change the outcome. The Browns are going to remain 1-2-1, and their faults that allowed their win to slip away are still going to be there.It’s really not debatable, though, that Anderson’s crew and the NFL League office replay official blew this one, robbing the Cleveland Browns of a win. The standard of review for overturning replays requiring “clear and obvious visual evidence” was not met.If the officials had given Hyde his spot at the 19, which was the referees’ decision on the field that was unconvincingly changed by the visual evidence that existed, Baker Mayfield would have hopped into the Browns’ victory formation cockpit for three straight kneel-downs. You also have to wonder whether Jackson should have went for it on 4th-and-miniscule, which would have also ended the game despite that atrocious call. A quarterback sneak up the middle isn’t guaranteed to work, but Jackson could have at least lined up his offense to try to draw the Raiders offsides. Worst-case scenario—with the clarity hindsight provides Duke Johnson Jersey , of course—is Mayfield gets stuffed and the Raiders evened the score more quickly, giving the Browns even more time to get in position for a game-winning field goal.There were several other blown calls throughout the game, too, including a plethora of missed holding penalties on a Raiders offensive line that knew they could get away with it.It happened all day long, and right in front of the officials’ faces.If you forgot, let me remind you there was an equally egregious miss by the refs a few minutes before the Hyde play. The Browns strip-sacked Derek Carr with just over six minutes left in regulation, the officials didn’t see that the ball was loose, and they then inexcusably blew the play dead to protect the wrapped-up quarterback. The Browns missed out on a potential scoop-and-score by Larry Ogunjobi, which would have put them ahead by eight points.Yes, the Browns still ended up scoring on their ensuing possession to add to their lead, but those types of plays change game dynamics. Both teams would have approached things differently after that, so hold onto those thoughts.But the referees, as mentioned, weren’t solely to blame for the Browns squandering multiple leads. They had chances to put the Raiders away, and they blew it. They blew it collectively, as a team, from the head coach all the way down to the rookie special teams coverage player.Let’s go back to Jackson for a minute. The coach’s peculiar decision to go for a two-point conversion with a 9-7 lead and almost three quarters left to play is the first thing that jumps to mind. That came after some odd-ball play-calling Authentic Christian Kirksey Jersey , including the “cute” Antonio Callaway in-motion shovel pass play—a formation from which they ran several plays throughout the game to mixed results—that was blown up on 3rd-and-goal.That goal-line meltdown was an early sign that things may not have been heading in the right direction. Todd Haley’s curious play-calling and his unit’s poor red-zone execution prevented the Browns from putting seven points on board after Carlos Hyde made it 1st-and-goal from the 1-yard line. The Browns made up for it later on subsequent two-point tries, but that was a rough start for a young team that can’t afford to be hindered in any way by its coaches. Terrance Mitchell made a great play to break up what could have been a third-down conversion, but it may have cost him his season. E.J. Gaines entered as his primary backup, and he played well enough to keep things in front of him. But like Mitchell, Gaines was hurt and went down on the field after his interception before halftime. That meant former Raider T.J. Carrie would have to play more snaps than you’d like to see at outside cornerback. We’d prefer he didn’t play any, honestly. Just as we saw Carrie struggle significantly throughout training camp and preseason when playing outside, his woes continued.And we don’t need Pro Football Focus grades to tell us that the former Raider was abysmal in every way once entering the game. His poor play, coupled with Gregg Williams’ insistence on pressuring quick-release wizard Derek Carr, led to a multitude of easy completions with Carrie floundering in isolation coverage.This tirade won’t be complete until addressing Baker Mayfield’s miscues. Look, everyone gets it, he’s a rookie quarterback. Nobody in their right mind was expecting perfection. But with a 14-point lead, and his pocket collapsing near his own goal-line—hat tip to Chris Hubbard who was bull-rushed into Mayfield’s lap—the rookie held the ball too long and was stripped, leading to a momentum-shattering Raiders score.With time running out in the fourth quarter and his team driving at the Raiders’ 49-yard line, Mayfield’s first real rookie decision-making mistake came at the worst time. Reggie McKenzie easily snagged a puzzling prayer ball to Callaway with only seven seconds to play. That turnover squandered what could have been a possible game-winning field-goal attempt if he had thrown a safer pass, or just thrown that one away and lived to play another down. His receivers didn’t do him any favors, either, dropping what seemed like every other pass. Callaway absolutely should have caught the ball that turned into a pick-six Youth Chris Hubbard Jersey , Mayfield’s first interception of his career and one of two in the game. By my count the Browns had 10 drops, and it could have been more. That’s such an embarrassingly high number that it pretty much speaks for itself. Mayfield had 20 incompletions, but he didn’t throw 20 poor passes.So, while you can chalk some things up to rookie mistakes—like the fumbled under-center exchange with J.C. Tretter that helped complete the Raiders comeback—it wasn’t all bad for Mayfield. Considering everything that went wrong for the Browns, it’s unfair to put too much blame on the rookie quarterback’s shoulders. He made some incredible throws and played escape artist all day in the pocket. His 295 passing yards were also the fifth-most by a No. 1 pick in an NFL debut in the Super Bowl era. Before I leave you to wallow in this mess, I can’t let the Browns defense off the hook for what was one of the most pathetic tackling efforts I have ever seen—Myles Garret and Joe Schobert excluded. With absolutely no mercy, Marshawn Lynch punked the Browns defense repeatedly, and Browns defenders were visibly timid and shied away from contacting the 32-year-old power-back. His play juiced his teammates, and the Raiders’ intensity level skyrocketed throughout much of the second half once he got rolling.The Browns made plenty of mistakes and could have done more to win in Oakland, but they did do enough to win, and I’m comfortable saying they earned a victory. They just didn’t get one.But, between you and me, Hyde made the 19-yard line, and there’s nothing definitive in the footage that shows otherwise.

The game was tied in the bottom of the sixth when George Springer’s 15th homer made it 2-1. Two pitches later Alex Bregman sent an 87 mph slider from Rays starter Nathan Eovaldi (1-3) into the seats in left field for his 11th home run.

But the Astros weren’t done yet, as Altuve put one on the train tracks atop left field for the second time on Wednesday night to push the lead to 4-1. It was the first time the Astros hit three home runs in a row since May 2 DeShone Kizer Jersey , 2008, when Miguel Tejada, Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee did it against Milwaukee.

It was a welcome display of power for a team that managed just five singles in a 2-1 loss to the Rays on Tuesday night that snapped Houston’s 12-game winning streak. The win made the Astros the first team to reach 50 victories this season.

Houston starter Charlie Morton (9-1) allowed just two hits and one unearned run in six innings.


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Robbie Grossman and Max Kepler homered to back an effective start by Lance Lynn as Minnesota beat Boston.

Grossman led off the bottom of the first with a home run and Kepler added a two-run shot off David Price (8-5). Brian Dozier added a pair of doubles to help the Twins win for the fourth time in five games.

Lynn (5-5) again struggled with command, issuing five walks, but he gave up just one unearned run and three hits in five innings.

Four relievers combined for four scoreless innings, with Fernando Rodney securing his 16th save in 19 chances.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Odubel Herrera hit a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh inning, Cesar Hernandez had a two-run shot and Philadelphia beat St. Louis.

Herrera ripped a 91 mph slider from Sam Tuivailala (1-3) off the scoreboard on the facing of the second deck in right field to give the Phillies a 4-3 lead. Herrera has a homer in four straight games.

Yadier Molina hit a pair of homers for the Cardinals off Phillies starter Jake Arrieta.

Edubray Ramos (2-0) got five outs and Adam Morgan retired the last two batters with the tying run on second for his first career save. The Phillies took two of three to win a series against the Cardinals for the first time since August 2014.

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha left in the fourth with a left oblique strain.


CLEVELAND (AP) – Corey Kluber became the first pitcher with 11 wins this season and Jose Ramirez and Jason Kipnis hit three-run homers in Cleveland’s victory over Chicago.

Reigning AL Cy Young winner Kluber (11-3) allowed only a second-inning single past third base by Omar Narvaez and a third-inning walk to Charlie Tilson in seven dominant innings. The right-hander struck out seven and retired the last 14 batters before giving way to George Kontos to begin the eighth. Josh Tomlin surrendered a double to Jose Abreu in the ninth before completing the combined two-hitter.

Kluber now has one more victory than Washington’s Max Scherzer and the Yankees’ Luis Severino.

Ramirez put the Indians ahead 3-0 in the first with his team-high 22nd home run off starter Reynaldo Lopez (2-5). He also extended his on-base streak to a career-high 28 games, scored three times and stole a base.

Kipnis’ three-run shot and Edwin Encarnacion’s two-run double were part of a six-run sixth against Bruce Rondon that pushed the lead to 11-0.


SAN DIEGO (AP) – Light-hitting Franklin Barreto connected for a 424-foot, three-run home run Richard Sherman Jersey , one of five long balls Oakland hit in routing San Diego.

Josh Phegley, Mark Canha, Matt Olson and Jed Lowrie also went deep for Oakland.

The A’s hit seven homers in sweeping the two-game series. Stephen Piscotty tied Tuesd Alcides Escobar’s streak of making 406 consecutive starts as the Kansas City Royals shortstop is about to end.

Manager Ned Yost said he plans to play Adalberto Mondesi, 22, a couple of days a week at shortstop. Escobar, 31, has been the Royals everyday shortstop since 2011 after being acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers as part of the Zack Greinke trade.

”Esky’s been our shortstop for a long time,” Yost said Tuesday. ”It’s a pretty big change, seeing someboy different at short, but it’s exciting, too because now you’re starting to give other younger players opportunities to see what they can do.”

Escobar was an American League All-Star starter and Glove Glove winner in 2015, the year the Royals won the World Series.

With the Royals in last place with a 22-50 record entering the game Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers, they are looking to the future.

”It’s a good chance to experiment right now Garry Gilliam Jersey ,” Yost said. ”There’s nothing that is going to make or break us. You can start looking at things a little bit differently and start experimenting with some things.”

He said he talked to Escobar about his consecutive-game streak, which is the longest active streak in the majors, ending.

”We talked about the streak,” Yost said. ”There will be times he’ll sit. But it’s time to look at Mondi at little bit and move Esky around.”

He said he could play Escobar at play third, second or center field.

”He was excited about the opportuity,” Yost said. ”He’s at a point in his career where it will increase value if he can play multiple positions.”

Escobar played five games, one start in right field, in the outfield in 2010 with the Brewers. He has played 1,355 games at shorstop.

The Royals have already started their youth movement by trading closer Kelvin Herrera to the Washington Nationals on Monday for three prospects and outfielder Jon Jay to the Arizona on June 6 for two minor league pitchers.

Tiger Woods endorsed Nike's latest "Just Do It"

#118 liny195 » 14.01.2019, 03:58

ad narrated by Colin Kaepernick with a message nearly as succinct."It's a beautiful spot San Francisco 49ers Hats ," Woods said.The two-minute ad, which debuted during the NFL opener, highlights superstar athletes LeBron James, Serena Williams and others, and touches on the controversy of NFL player protests during the national anthem.Woods, a Nike athlete since turning pro in 1996 who rarely delves into divisive issues, said Friday he was a fan of the apparel giant featuring the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback known for his social protests."I think Nike is trying to get out ahead of it and trying to do something special and I think they've done that," Woods said at the BMW Championship. "It's a beautiful spot and pretty powerful people (are) in the spot."The ad aired during the first commercial break in the third quarter of the Eagles-Falcons game on Thursday night. Kaepernick watched the first television airing on NBC at an event held at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.Woods has been a big part of Nike Golf through his 14 major championships San Francisco 49ers Hoodie , no moment more indelible than when his chip shot on the 16th green at the Masters hung on edge of the cup for two seconds — with the swoosh facing the camera — before dropping. His "TW" logo has made him an embodiment of the brand.He said Nike didn't consult his opinion on the ad that featured Kaepernick."They did not tell me it was coming," Woods said. "When corporate does things that are outside of golf and outside of my realm, that's what they do."Nike's swoosh logo was omnipresent on hats, polos and spikes for golfers at Aronimink Golf Club.Tony Finau, the leading candidate to be the final Ryder Cup pick for the U.S. team, said the Nike campaign with Kaepernick "definitely stands out""As far as Kaepernick and all that's concerned, we all have the freedom of speech and he's using it in a way that's non-violent which is something you just have to respect as an American," he said. "They came out with a campaign that they feel is who they are. As an athlete of theirs, it's not my job to agree or disagree with whatever they do."Kaepernick's deal with Nike for the 30th anniversary of the "Just Do It" campaign was the most polarizing issue in sports this week Cheap Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys , prompting heated debate on several topics including athletes protesting social injustice and Nike wading into political waters. Some fans responded to Kaepernick's sponsorship deal by cutting or burning gear with Nike's signature swoosh logo. Others argued the backlash to the campaign and calls for a Nike boycott showed how the debate has morphed well beyond how athletes try to highlight issues like racial inequality and police shootings of unarmed minorities.President Donald Trump, a critic of protests during the anthem, tweeted Friday, "What was Nike thinking ?"Serena Williams, who will play her in ninth U.S. Open final, said last week at the tournament that she was proud of Kaepernick. He was in Flushing Meadows to watch Williams play."I think every athlete, every human, and definitely every African-American should be completely grateful and honored (for Kaepernick)," she said.Kaepernick began a wave of protests by NFL players two seasons ago Nick Mullens Jersey , kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.PGA Championship winner and two-time U.S. Open champ Brooks Koepka said the biggest winner might be the publicity sparked for Nike."I mean, let's put it this way, their name is in the paper and people are talking about it," he said. "So Nike is doing what they want to do." Welcome to Week 11 of the 2018 NFL season! The San Francisco 49ers are on bye this week, so we get a chance to relax a little bit and enjoy some football that doesn’t involve seeing the 49ers lose bad or blow a close one. The week gets going later tonight with what could be a fun one between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Thursday Night Football.If you’re still alive in your Survivor pool, I doubt you’ll be using the Packers or Seahawks tonight. The safest pick might be the Saints at home against the Eagle. I don’t think it will be a walk in the park for New Orleans, but if you want to use that pick, now is a good time. If you want to get a little crazy this weekend, Arizona at home against Oakland is intriguing. The Cardinals’ only two wins are against the 49ers Nick Mullens 49ers Jersey , but the Raiders are abysmal. I’d like to see Oakland get the win for draft pick purposes, but I don’t see that happening.Tonight, Week 11 opens with a rehashing of the historically fun Packers-Seahawks rivalry. Seattle is a 2.5-point favorite, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. This is a tough one to handicap. Green Bay is 4-4-1 and Seattle is 4-5, currently on the outside of the playoffs looking in. I think this ends up being a tight one, but Seattle gets the slight cover. I’ll go with something like 24-20.Here are all my straight-up picks for Week 11. I was 9-5 last week, bringing my season record to 97-48-2. I’ll have the rest of my picks against the spread later this weekend.Packers @ Seahawks: SeahawksCowboys @ Falcons: FalconsPanthers @ Lions: PanthersTitans @ Colts: ColtsBuccaneers @ Giants: BucsTexans @ Washington: WashingtonSteelers @ Jaguars: JaguarsBengals @ Ravens: RavensRaiders @ Cardinals: CardinalsBroncos @ Chargers: ChargersEagles @ Saints: SaintsVikings @ Bears: VikingsChiefs @ Rams: Rams

49ers TE George Kittle believes in the offense
The top receiver for the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1 was tight end George Kittle. He finished the day with five catches for 90 yards http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-kyle-juszczyk-jersey , but it’s the passes the he didn't catch that may leave a more lasting impression as what could have been, for both himself and fans. Kittle was targeted nine times and there’s one in particular that he’d like to have back. Jimmy Garoppolo went deep to Kittle to the left side of the field in the third quarter and his outstretched arms were not long enough to get a grip on the ball. Kittle explains:Kittle also missed a high pass from Garoppolo in the back of the end zone. He explained that at 250 pounds, he doesn’t have a 40 inch vertical. He laughed and added that if he was ten pounds lighter, maybe. Through the laughs and joking, which is just Kittle’s personality http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-earl-mitchell-jersey , he strongly believes in the 49ers offense. He says that while the Vikings defense is good, Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan make them a good offense as well. While he can’t put a finger on why the red zone challenges linger, he knows they will get better. Is there a lot of potential with this offense?Kittle also explained the mood on the sidelines, which was never in question. Kittle also says the offense’s game plan for the week is clear:Shanahan: Marquise Goodwin is game-time decision, Richard Sherman http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-joe-staley-jersey , Ahkello Witherspoon should play The San Francisco 49ers will run through their final practice in Santa Clara on Friday, but we likely won’t get all the answers we’re hoping for on the final injury report for Week 3 vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan offered some updates Friday morning about wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, and cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Ahkello Witherspoon.Goodwin has been dealing with a quadricep injury he suffered early in the team’s Week 1 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Shanahan said Goodwin still is not quite there yet in being ready, and he is a game-time decision. The team will have a practice in Santa Clara on Friday, and then a walkthrough in Kansas City on Saturday. They’ll assess him after the walkthrough http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-marquise-goodwin-jersey , and then once again after pre-game warmups on Sunday. For now, Shanahan described him as 50-50.Richard Sherman was added to the injury report on Thursday with a heel injury. Shanahan described it as wear and tear and they wanted to be smart with him. However, Shanahan said Sherman will be on the practice field on Friday and expects him to play on Sunday.The same holds true for Ahkello Witherspoon, who has been limited with an ankle injury. There was no update on Jaquiski Tartt and his shoulder injury.

Which non-49ers game are you looking forward to in Week 4?
Welcome to Week 4 of the NFL season. The rest of the league has a tough act to follow with the tremendous Thursday Night Football contest between the Los Angeles Rams and Minnesota Vikings. I never thought I’d say that might be the game of the week White Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , but that truly could have been the game of the week. The San Francisco 49ers get going in the afternoon at 1:25 P.M. in an away game against the Los Angeles Chargers. This gives the slew of morning games for us to watch since more games come on in the morning. It’s a shame that they also will be playing when the Cleveland Browns take on the Oakland Raiders. This will be Baker Mayfield’s first start and I’m curious how the Raiders woes can continue into the season. The Browns are riding off their first win in 635 days which makes it nothing more intriguing to see if they can win a second game. If there’s anyone they can do it against, it’s the Raiders. With the morning games, I’m more interested in Miami Dolphins/New England Patriots. The Patriots have had nothing but issues for 2018, and the Dolphins are currently undefeated. Can the Dolphins get over the hump? They certainly deserve it, and I’m a Frank Gore fan. I’m also curious on the Chicago Bears/Tampa Bay Buccaneers for nothing else than to see the quarterback chaos with the Buccaneers going between Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston.

There are hopes the team can remain competitive on a game-to-game basis, but I don’t imagine many people think a playoff berth is realistic.That being said, it does leave us 11 more weeks to figure out what to make of the 49ers roster moving forward. The offensive line is showing signs of progress, while the defense as a whole has its work cut out for it.We won’t get fully into team needs and free agent and draft possibilities until the offseason, but that won’t stop us from considering things in bits and pieces. We’ll continue looking at each upcoming matchup, but I also want to mix in some looks ahead to give us something more to assess than just whether or not the 49ers lose another game each week this season.We’ll start off with an initial look at the 49ers team needs. What do you view as the biggest team need right now? You might think they should approach the draft one way and free agency another, particularly with the cap space and draft picks likely available. However, for now, it’s just a matter of just what the needs are after five weeks. I have not listed every position Youth Mike Person Jersey , so if there are enough suggesting another position with “Other,” I can add that to the next version of this survey.I’ll pose this question several more times this season to see if things change, but for the time being, what do you think is the most significant need on the roster?

Giants at Cowboys: Plays that changed the game in 20-13
loss Another week Color Rush Jon Halapio Jersey , another game where the New York Giants never really looked like they had a chance to win. The final score of the 20-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys looks a lot friendlier than the Giants did on Sunday night. Still, we can take a look to see the plays and decisions that shaped the game through the lens of win probability and win probability added.This week we’re also adding expected points added (EPA). If you’re new to EPA, I suggest this explainer from Brian Burke.All WPA and EPA figures come from the perspective of the offense.Tavon Austin’s touchdownWin probability added (WPA): 17.2 percent | Expected points added EPA): 5.13For the second week in a row, the Giants gave up a big pass play on their opponent’s first drive of the game. Last week it was a 31-yard pass to Keelan Cole that helped set up an eventual field goal. This week, it was a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin. Austin blew past Janoris Jenkins, who stumbled in his back pedal, and was able to beat Curtis Riley, who took a bad angle over the top. The touchdown immediately gave the Cowboys a lead they wouldn’t give up and boosted their win probably to 70.8 percent not even two minutes into the game.An early third down conversionWPA: 6.2 percent | EPA: 1.89On the Giants’ first drive of the game, they faced a third-and-4 from their own 31-yard line. Out of a trips bunch to the right side, the Giants ran a mesh variation (dueling crossing routes) with Odell Beckham from the outside position in the bunch and Evan Engram, who was inline on the left. Typically with a mesh concept, the offense wants to catch the defense in man Color Rush Curtis Riley Jersey , so the crossing routes can set a natural pick and spring one of those receivers free. However, the Cowboys sat back in zone here. Still, Beckham had enough separation in front of the zone defender and was able to work his way after the catch to a first down. This would let the Giants keep driving, but the drive ended with a fourth-and-1 punt from the 48 — a decision we’ll get to in just a bit. The Cowboys kicked a field goal on the next drive to take a 10-0 lead and the Giants had a 21 percent chance of winning the next time they touched the ball.A pair of sneaksWPA: 6.0 percent | EPA: 2.35WPA: 6.1 percent | EPA: 2.14After the Giants passed up going for it from their own 48 in the first quarter, they went for it on a fourth-and-1 from their own 35 early in the second quarter. An Eli Manning sneak converted, his first sneak attempt since 2010. A few plays later the Giants found themselves faced with another fourth and short — fourth-and-1 from their own 46. The Giants went for it again because if you’re going to go for it at your 35, you kind of have to go for it at the 46, where you should be going for it anyway. The Giants converted on another Manning sneak.The two conversions added 12.1 percent win probably and 4.49 expected points. That’s why the Giants should have gone for it in the first quarter. Since 2016, there have been 111 4th and 1’s between the 45s. It’s been a 50-50 proposition to whether teams will punt or not (56 punts for 55 conversion attempts), but those who go for the first down often get it — 65.5 percent of those fourth-and-1 attempts were converted. The Giants had the chance to keep an early drive going, one that already saw them down a touchdown. These are the times when trying to gain the most should take precedent over not trying to lose. The Giants are also a team that just spent the second overall pick on a running back. If they were scared of not converting a fourth and short near midfield, there’s a flaw somewhere in that thought process. Maybe the two converted attempts later in the game will help with future decisions Youth Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , but that is still to be determined.Undone by sacksUnfortunately those fourth down conversions were derailed by a sack, as were a few other Giants drives in this game. A trio of sacks in the second, third, and fourth quarters cost the Giants 9.91 expected points and 19.9 percent in win probability. Add in a sack that occurred early in the second quarter before the drive with the conversion attempts an it’s 12.23 expected points and 23.7 percent win probability. Manning was also sacked two other times.Kavon Frazier - 7:35 remaining, second quarterWPA: minus-4.7 percent | EPA: minus-1.67The first sack of the big three came immediately after the second fourth down conversion. The Giants did exactly what you’d like to see in the given situation — play-action against a nine-man box. But even though Manning moved fullback Shane Smith to account for the blitzing defensive back, Kavon Frazier was still able to come nearly untouched to the quarterback.Damien Wilson - 13:28 remaining, third quarterWPA: minus-10.3 percent | EPA: minus-5.67Early in the third quarter, a Damien Wilson sack of Manning was the second-biggest win probability swing of the night. The Giants had the ball at their own 40 for a 2nd and 10 when the Cowboys brought a blitz that created a free rusher. Wilson hit Manning and knocked the ball out for a fumble that was recovered by Taco Charlton. This knocked the Giants from an already unlikely 21.1 percent win probability to 10.8 percent.This play was a blown blocking assignment from rookie left guard Will Hernandez. Hernandez was confused when the defensive tackle lined up over center Jon Halapio then moved to hit the gap against right guard Patrick Omameh. That left Halapio with a blitzing Jaylon Smith (54) who Hernandez tried to chip, which allowed Wilson to get free with Hernandez barely able to move from his stance stuck between the two defenders.Tyrone Crawford - 15:00 remaining, fourth quarterWPA: minus-4.93 percent | EPA: minus-2.57A sack on the first play of the fourth quarter — third-and-9 from the Giants’ 37 — was a complete offensive line breakdown. Both Nate Solder and Ereck Flowers were beaten by inside moves on the edge, which caused initial pressure. The eventual sack, though Color Rush Patrick Omameh Jersey , originated from the interior. Tyrone Crawford was a defensive tackle lined up over Omameh at right guard, but looped all the way around the left edge. Will Hernandez’s effort to get a hand on Crawford was futile and the defensive tackle was able to chase down Manning.Barkley makes a playWPA: 7.0 percent | EPA: 2.64There was a chance for the Giants to get into the end zone in the middle of the third quarter. The offense was brought near the edge of the goal line by a big Saquon Barkley catch. The Giants were just outside the red zone facing a third-and-6 on the Dallas 21 with 7:07 left in the third quarter. A quick swing pass to Barkley with acceleration to blow past Jaylon Smith and a spin move to avoid Kavon Frazier, gained 18 yards and got the Giants down to the Dallas 3. Nate Solder was called for holding on the next play, which pushed the Giants back out to the 13. A 2-yard run, an incompletion, and 1-yard Manning scramble set up a field goal instead of a near certain touchdown following the Barkley catch.Elliott finds a wayWPA: 2.5 percent | EPA: 3.14The game was essentially iced when Ezekiel Elliott ran the ball for a 6-yard touchdown with 5:51 remaining in the game. The third-and-2 run featured a broken tackle at the first down line before Elliott was able to bounce in for the score. The manageable third down was set up by an 8-yard read option keeper from Dak Prescott as the read option continues to be a problem for the Giants defense — they face Deshaun Watson next week.Engram in the end zoneWPA: 1.2 percent | EPA: 4.38Week 2 was a much better week for Evan Engram. He caught all seven of his targets for 67 yards and a touchdown. He was still targeted on shallow routes often — his 3.8 aDOT is seventh-lowest among wide receivers and tight ends with at least five targets — but his 18-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter was a nice deep route from the inside slot in a 3x2 set that ended up wide open in the end zone. Engram’s score made it 20-10 with just under a minute and a half left.Surprisingly, the Giants recovered the onside kick after the score with a chance to bring the game within one possession. Much was made about whether the Giants should have kicked the field goal early or gone for the touchdown and using the research by Brian Burke on the topic, it didn’t really matter by the time the Giants got into field goal range with around 30 seconds remaining. At that point, the win probability doesn’t shift much one way or the other and it becomes easier to score a touchdown the closer the team is to the end zone. The field goal or touchdown debate is something that has more importance earlier in the fourth quarter. By the time the Giants got the ball close enough to kick it, the odds of getting any kind of score, plus another onside kick and another score was already fairly slim. Slim also describes the Giants’ odds for success throughout the rest of the season after an 0-2 start. Teams that start 0-2 average 5.7 wins for the season and just 10 percent of them make the playoffs. The Giants’ offseason moves suggested they felt they could compete for a postseason spot during the 2018 season, but that notion proved to be well off the mark.They’ve lost six of the seven games they’ve played this season and are now trading away starting players as they shift attention to a deeper rebuild of the roster than they were willing to undertake after going 3-13 last year. The deals involving defensive tackle Damon Harrison and cornerback Eli Apple may be followed by others Color Rush Nate Solder Jersey , but the players still on hand said Wednesday that they aren’t giving up on the season.“We’re not throwing in the towel at all, man. I honestly think that’s disrespectful to us players,” cornerback B.W. Webb said, via the New York Post. “We don’t go into any game thinking we’re just gonna throw it away. We fight every week, there are people out there playing for their families, their kids, for each other. It’s disrespectful when we hear that, somebody say we’re tanking or something like that.”There may be little for the Giants to gain as a team this year, but the individual players have plenty at stake when it comes to earning jobs around the league in 2019. That might not lead the team to execute any better than they have so far this year, but it should keep the effort level from dropping to the same depths.

Pat Shurmur will adjust and adapt to running back
injuries When the New York Giants left the Meadowlands last Monday afternoon for a week of joint practices and a preseason game with the Detroit Lions Cheap B.J. Hill Jersey , they appeared to have a lot of problems to fix. The defense looked fragile, the offense looked anemic, and there were serious questions about the quarterback position after their 20-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns.Despite not getting back from Detroit until 5:00 am on Saturday morning — “Sleep is overrated,” Shurmur said — the team has to feel better about their performance following a 30-17 victory. But there is still work to be done, as Shurmur told reporters in his press conference Saturday afternoon. On the offensive line The Giants’ offensive line should still be considered a work in progress. The coach isn’t expecting them to be great right away, but is looking for progress over the course of the pre-season. “I thought they performed better than the week before,” Shurmur said. “Aside from the one play where the ball potentially got knocked out of Davis (Webb’s) hand, I thought the protection was pretty good. I thought we did a decent job run blocking. There’s certainly plays in there where we can do better, but for the most part, I think they battled. I think they had 25 snaps together, and there were really no communication errors. So it was a solid performance. There’s plenty of areas where we can get better, but each week they’re doing some things better and better.”About run blocking, Shurmur mentioned that he wasn’t happy with how the team ran the ball to start the game, but they responded well to a mid-game adjustment. “Again,” Shurmur said, “that’s part of adjusting. We try to adjust in-game. We weren’t running the ball as well as I wanted to early and then we made some adjustments and found a way to do it later. It’s just like your practice plans, too. I think what’s important is you make adjustments to them. I have a certain amount of work I think we need to get done and certain things we want to practice, but if you have less of this player and more of another in terms of groups, you just feature those guys in practice.”He also added that the apparent issues timing the snap between Davis Webb and Jon Halapio aren’t a concern. Shurmur said, when asked if that was evidence of a communication issue, “No, that was actually us working our operation. We were in silent count, sometimes it takes a little bit longer to get it done because of the communication and how we do it. It’s great because we had to practice it and Davis (Webb) was involved as the starter, so it’s just a little bit different than having Eli (Manning) in there. It’s all good in a preseason game. We were fighting the clock a little more than I wanted to, but those are the things you learn by being in silent count in an away arena.”On the running back situation Giants were already down one running back with the injury to Saquon Barkley. Shurmur confirmed Saturday afternoon that the team would be without a second running back with RB Jalen Simmons, as well as linebacker Calvin Munson, in the concussion protocol. “Yeah,” Shurmur said, “I guess I can comment on that. Jalen had a concussion and he’s actually doing well today. At least the reports are that he’s doing well. He’s moving around, he was actually moving around last night, so we’re just going to take it day by day with him and see how he progresses. Calvin Munson also had a concussion, so they’re both involved in the protocol and certainly we don’t ever want to put a player on the field that shouldn’t be out there, and so we’ll let this thing in both these cases, we’ll let them come back as they can.”With the team now down two running backs for the time being, Shurmur will have to get creative and make adjustments. Interestingly, one of the adjustments he mentioned could be using fullback Shane Smith as a running back.Shurmur said, “Yeah, we will just manage it. I think we have ways we can get into different personnel groupings. We have quite a few (running backs) and we will get what we can out of them. We have a fullback in Shane Smith that can take someone’s running back work. We’ll make it work.”In addition to using Smith as a running back, some also noticed a play in practice which saw Evan Engram line up in the backfield as a ball carrier — that, however, doesn’t seem like a wrinkle the team would use in a preseason game.On the defense Perhaps the biggest coup for the Giants of the 2018 offseason was the hiring of James Bettcher to rebuild the Giants’ defense. Once Bettcher became available, Shurmur said that he didn’t have to sell himself or his defense. “There was no sales pitch Cheap Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey ,” Shurmur said. “When I put this thing together, I had a coordinator in mind that I wanted because he was hard to play against. So, I saw on tape, by playing against him, what our defense should look like, and he’s just trying to implement that. There was no sales pitch. I think I’ve been pleased with how hard they’ve played, especially the first couple of groups. We’ve been able to kind of control the run, and at times get pressure on that quarterback, and that’s what you want to do, but he didn’t have to sell me. I think just having played against him and knowing that he was available, I wanted to bring him here in New York.”Perhaps the biggest concern with the Giant’s starting defense after two preseason games is covering running backs and tight ends in the middle of the field. This isn’t a problem which is exclusive to the Giants — their own offense will attempt to cause those same issues for defenses throughout the season. But, it is a problem, and may not be completely avoidable. “Any time a linebacker gets matched up on the back,” Shurmur said, “it’s something that we all work on. Actually the sack, what would have been a sack but was actually an incomplete pass, we were doing the same thing against their linebackers, so it happens at times. The key is if the ball gets completed, then we have to get it on the ground. It’s not secret, all teams try to do it.”That attitude springs from his general philosophy regarding football: Take care of the football, disrupt the on defense, and don’t make a bad situation worse. Shurmur said, “I’ve always believed if you take care of the ball and on defense if you take it away from them, that’s the obvious, and then if one of those things happens to you and you’re on the bad side of it, you’ve got to keep them from scoring or if you get a turnover, you need to score. That’s the mindset, and it’s kind of a totality of the things I’ve learned over the years.”On the Herzlich penaltyThe Giants mounted a respectable pass rush against the Detroit Lions, generating pressure from all across their defensive front. Their box score would have looked even better had the officials not thrown a questionable flag on Mark Herzlich for unnecessary roughness. It’s a call that Shurmur feels some kind of way about.“I have a very strong opinion of that play,” Shurmur said. “We’re going to send that play in to get evaluated and we’ll see what they say, and what they do tell me, I won’t tell you. I don’t think it’s necessary to get fined in the preseason. Here’s the thing – we want to teach a physical, safe game, played by the rules, and things happen fast in games, and we all certainly see things differently in real speed, so sometimes it gets left to interpretation when you replay it in HD very slowly, so we’ll just see. Part of the preseason is everyone getting used to the new rule. Not only how to play the game, but how to officiate it; and I’m hopeful I’m going to get an answer on that play.” The first half of the New York Giants season is (finally) over and the team is limping in to their Week 9 bye. They dropped yet another winnable game, falling to 1-7 on the season after losing to the Washington Redskins at home. As we have seen too many times this year, the Giants’ defense played more than well enough to win, holding Washington to just 20 points http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-alec-ogletree-jersey , 13 for most of the game, but the offense could not capitalize on any opportunity.There was plenty of bad, but there were a few bright spots to be found in the Giants’ mess.Hill, Goodson, and Carter made the most of their opportunitiesWith Damon Harrison on the Detroit Lions and Alec Ogletree injured, those snaps had to go somewhere. The recipients were rookie DT B.J. Hill and LB B.J. Goodson, and the two made good use of their opportunities. Goodson has been a starter alongside Ogletree, but he has been the linebacker taken off the field in nickel situations. In this case, Goodson stayed on the field and was constantly around the ball. He played “okay” dropping in coverage — not great, but probably better than some thought he might given his reputation as a downhill linebacker. But it was going downhill was where Goodson shined. He was consistently around the ball in the run game, making several plays behind the line of scrimmage. Hill made his presence felt throughout the game in both the running game and as a pass rusher. Washington has a great interior offensive line, and Hill was routinely forcing his way in to the backfield. Damon Harrison is still the best nose tackle in the business, but the combination of Hill and Tomlinson are why the Giants could trade him. Lorenzo Carter saw a definite uptick in snaps played as the Giants sought to use his athleticism to improve their pass rush. Carter didn’t get any sacks this game, but he was a constant presence in the Washington backfield and pressured Alex Smith several times. The rookie still has a way to go to harness his physical abilities, but the upside is evident. Quadree Henderson is a keeperIt took three tries for the Giants to get Quadree Henderson on their team and on the field. They showed an interest in him prior to the 2018 NFL draft, sending their special teams coordinator to Pittsburgh’s pro day, as well as hosting him for a pre-draft visit, but didn’t sign him as an undrafted free agent. They had him in for another workout after final cutdowns, but didn’t sign him then, either. The Giants finally signed him to their practice squad early in October, and he has made plays as a returner since being signed to the 53-man roster. In a season where bright spots and silver linings are few and far between, Henderson’s emergence as a returner is one of them.The offensive line can always get worseThe offensive line was broken and bad in 2017, there was no arguing that it needed attentionand an infusion of talent in the 2018 offseason. But somehow the offensive line is worse than last year, and has been trending downward. Eli Manning was sacked seven (7) times Sunday afternoon, bringing his season total up to 31, which ties the total from all of 2017. In fact, Manning has already been sacked more than all but two seasons (2017 and 2013) in his whole career — he is on pace to be sacked 62 times. Some of those sacks are on Manning, such as the final one where he needed to throw the ball away, but there has still been far too much pressure allowed for any QB to function consistently. Meanwhile, the Giants’ running game continues to be nearly nonexistent, with Saquon Barkley picking up just 38 yards on 13 carries (2.8 yards per carry). The Giants offensive line is ranked dead last in run blocking, and the team has little to show on the ground when Barkley isn’t making a spectacular play.The Giants’ offensive line was bad to start the season and has only been getting worse.The Giants would be crazy to trade Odell Beckham Jr.Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported shortly before the game Sunday that teams were making trade offers for Beckham. The report also said that the Giants were going to “pump the breaks” and “hold off for now” on moving Beckham. Based on what he has done in his career, and especially in a bad, broken offense these past two weeks, the Giants would be crazy to consider moving him any time in the conceivable future. Yes, he is making a lot of money, but he is worth every penny. So far this season he has 61 catches for 785 yards, 16 for 279 in the last two weeks. Beckham is one of the three best receivers in the NFL, the team is better with him than without, and when they do move on to another quarterback, he will be better with Beckham than without.

Kaelin Clay: 5 things to know about the Giants
new return man Kaelin Clay in the New York Giants new return specialist http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-janoris-jenkins-jersey , having been awarded to the Giants on waivers Sunday as the Giants overhauled their 53-man roster. Let’s get to know him a little better.Connection to GettlemanOf course Clay has a connection to Giants GM Dave Gettleman. He signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers in April of 2017, when Gettleman was still the team’s GM. He averaged 8.6 yards on 17 punt returns and 17.3 yards on three kickoff returns before the Panthers traded him to the Buffalo Bills — after Gettleman had been fired.He’s been a pinata for the last yearClay signed with the Panthers, got traded to the Bills before the season started, got cut by Buffalo and re-signed by Carolina before the season ended, got let go by the Panthers in the offseason, re-signed with Buffalo, and got cut again this weekend. So, yeah, a pinata.He has two punt return touchdownsClay had punt return touchdowns for the Baltimore Ravens in 2015 and for the Panthers last season.He is a specialistCoach Pat Shurmur said recently that the Giants could carry a return specialist who didn’t contribute much at another position “if he’s dynamic enough where he can change the game by being a returner.”The Giants must feel Clay is dynamic enough because he is primarily a kick returner. He has just 6 receptions in 19 career targets.He had this happen to himHopefully, Clay has learned his lesson. Happy Thursday and game day, New York Giants fans.

How the Patriots can incorporate Josh Gordon into their offense
The Patriots made headlines when they traded for troubled Browns receiver Josh Gordon. Gordon broke out with 87 catches for 1646 yards and 9 TD on 159 targets for Cleveland in 2013. That performance included a 10/151/2 day against Aqib Talib and the Patriots http://www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-marcus-cannon-jersey , in which NE barely escaped with a 26-21 victory. Since that year, Gordon has only seen 93 targets and 43 catches due to his own battles with addiction to recreational drugs and alcohol. With the Patriots receiving corps from Super Bowl LI and LII decimated by free agent departures, suspensions, and injuries, the team took a flyer on Gordon to try to recapture that old magic. The Patriots invested a 5th round pick in Gordon, which barring any more legal troubles or a relapse in his addiction issues means he’s on the roster for the rest of the season. He brings a matchup element the Patriots’ other receivers don’t have, size and speed. The Patriots currently have Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett as their primary receivers, but neither guy is going to get open against #1 corners, especially against teams like Jacksonville that have two players of that caliber. Julian Edelman is back in Week 5 http://www.authenticsnewenglandpatriots.com/cheap-elandon-roberts-jersey , but coming off an ACL injury and 32 years old, it’s not a safe bet to assume he’ll be as productive as he’s been the last 5 seasons. I expect the Patriots to employ Gordon in a very simplified role, slowly easing him into the offensive game plan. I would not be surprised if he is inactive for Week 3, as the Patriots will be playing a Lions team that’s due for a culture shock. Gordon won’t be asked to understand the entire playbook, but rather the cliff notes version and what game plan they have for him against a given opponent. Here are some ways they can transition him into the offense in total:Go Routes:Gordon’s biggest attribute as a receiver is the ability to separate vertically. His 6’3” height is also an advantage on those type of routes down the field due to his ability to high-point the football and keep it away from defenders. Just ask the SteelersThat’s Gordon’s only catch of the season to date, but it highlights the skill he has for vertical routes. The threat of the deep ball outside the numbers will allow the Patriots to attack the middle of the field in both the run and pass game. Rob Gronkowski is the Patriots’ only consistent threat to beat teams deep, which is why the safety is sitting towards the middle of the field or shaded to Gronk’s side if he is lined up in the slot or on the boundary. I don’t expect Gordon to consistently burn teams deep, but one or two deep completions to him will force teams to have to adjust their game plan. On these type routes, I expect him to be late in the progression unless matched up against smaller corners on an island. Slants and In-Breaking Routes:Gordon’s deep speed is something teams will have to respect White Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey , which means they will be playing a lot of off-man or zone to combat that. Obviously teams aren’t going to play zone because it turns into pitch and catch for Tom Brady and his RBs or Gronk. If teams are playing way off, I think hitting a couple slant or quick-in routes for free yards to keep drives can add an element of frustration for opposing defenders. One way to scheme this route open is to line up Gordon next to a slot receiver who is running a deeper route towards the boundary to set a natural pick on Gordon’s defender. The Patriots did that with Michael Floyd back in 2016 when Floyd took a quick-in route and bulldozed the Miami defense to the end zone. In total, I don’t expect big contributions from Gordon as a whole to the offense. However, teams are also very well aware what he’s capable of from that breakout year with Cleveland five seasons ago. Whether that matchup has a domino effect that improves the Patriots’ chances of putting together a strong offense that can win the postseason is yet to be seen.Week 5 Patriots vs Colts Monday injury report: Rob Gronkowski misses hypothetical practice The New England Patriots’ 38-7 win against the Miami Dolphins is only day behind us, but it is already “on to Indianapolis” for the team: on Thursday night, New England will host the Indianapolis Colts in a primetime matchup. With the two games so close together, the team opted not to practice today – but still had to release a hypothetical injury report:DID NOT PARTICIPATERob Gronkowski left yesterday’s game with an ankle injury and is considered to be day-to-day. It would be a surprise if he were a full participant at one point this week, which is why he could be a candidate to be held out of Thursday’s game. Indianapolis, meanwhile Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey , would have had eight players miss today’s practice if it had been more than just a walkthrough – including star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton.LIMITED PARTICIPATIONAdam Butler and Elandon Roberts both suffered injuries late during yesterday’s game. While today’s injury report is just a prognosis, seeing them listed as “limited” instead of hypothetical absentees is a good sign for their long-term availability. The other players listed were also on last week’s final injury report: Josh Gordon, Danny Shelton and Brandon King played against Miami, while Geneo Grissom, Jacob Hollister and Eric Rowe were out.FULL PARTICIPATIONAll three Colts listed as full participants will play on Thursday.

The Patriots keep playing running back roulette

#119 liny195 » 14.01.2019, 07:21

With the many mind games that Bill Belichick and the Patriots play with opponents and fans Youth Rex Burkhead Jersey , one of the most common and confusing is the running back situation. Each week it is a mystery who gets the start, the third down plays, and the red zone touches. The most recent certainty we’ve had when it came to the running back situation was knowing LeGarrette Blount was getting the goal line touches. Blount hasn’t been on the team since the 2016 season, where he led the league in rushing touchdowns with 18 scores. That also was a franchise record for the Pats.Most fans assumed the signing of Mike Gillislee, would take over that role in 2017, however that wasn’t the case. Only registering 5 rushing touchdowns the entire season, 3 coming in the very first game of the season which caused many fantasy football owners to panic and scurry to pick up and trade for someone who ended up being a bust. Coming into the 2018 season, Dion Lewis is gone, Sony Michel and Jeremy Hill are due to compete for snaps, and undrafted free agent signing Ralph Webb came booming into the preseason scoring 2 touchdowns in the first game vs the Redskins. Yes, it was during garbage time, but a man’s trash is another man’s treasure, right? (Mr. Webb Adam Butler Jersey , you are not trash, just the saying)Coming into the 2018 season, we can expect to see the following running backs be on the roster or at least fight for a position.Technically, Brandon Bolden is a running back too, but his specialty lays with special teams (which is deeply underrated IMO) and we can forget about the fullback, James Develin, fullbacks are people too. However, with all these running backs on the team, how likely is it that they all will play? Very likely. Historically the Patriots have used a healthy rotation of running back throughout the game and the season. Last year the Patriots were tied in second place for the most amount of running back used during the season with 5 (6 with Develin) among teams ranking top 10 in rushing yards. The only team to use more running backs? The Philadelphia Eagles. This is important for a couple of reasons. Mainly because it helps keeps opposing teams guessing on personal and strategy, which every fan knows is the Patriots biggest strength.Another interesting stat comes with the Patriots running backs and the passing game. In 2017, the Patriots had 3 players in the top 20 in catch percentage, basically how many receptions per target. Remember, this included everyone in the NFL. You guessed it Authentic Elandon Roberts Jersey , they were all running backs. Dion Lewis was number one OVERALL with a 91.4%, Rex Burkhead came in number five with an 83.3%, and James White posted a 77.8% catch rate at number 17 overall. Pretty insane if you think about all the great receivers we have the league today. Names like Jarvis Landry (69.6%), Odell Beckham Jr. (61%), and Julio Jones (59.5%) were all less than these running backs.While it will be fun to see some new faces in a new offense, it should be no surprises the Patriots will continue to have the rest of the world guessing on who will get the next rushing attempt. My only request is that Tom Brady sticks to throwing and not running.Preseason week 3 Patriots vs Panthers: Quick-hit thoughts on New England’s 25-14 snoozefest against Carolina The Carolina Panthers destroyed the New England Patriots 25-14 and it wasn’t even that close. The Patriots didn’t look like they cared, which is fine since it’s the preseason, but they also didn’t look like they could have executed if they were trying, which is not fine.Here are my quick takeaways after the game.The Patriots defense was awful in the first halfWhen the Patriots starters were on the field, the Panthers gained 77 yards, 58 yards, 7 yards, and 59 yards. The three extended drives resulted in field goals for Carolina. It’s great that they tightened up in the red zone http://www.patriotsauthorizedshop.com/authentic-phillip-dorsett-jersey , but the Patriots first team defense spent the first half getting gashed every which way by the Panthers offense. Carolina waltzed their way up the field over the first 10 minutes of the game with four third-down conversions. Then they gained 28 yards on consecutive plays on their second drive. And then they ran the hurry-up to score right before the half. They were able to move however they wanted by running the ball, passing to receivers, or passing to their tight end. Bill Belichick won’t be too happy.The Patriots offense was also awful in the first halfThe Patriots went three-and-out on their first drive, stalled inside the red zone on their second drive and settled for a field goal, and then gained a mere 44 yards on 14 plays before Stephen Gostkowski pushed his field goal attempt wide. That was the Patriots entire first half. Tom Brady was accurate enough, but his receivers weren’t able to get open down the field. Julian Edelman dropped two passes, while Chris Hogan had 1 catch for 10 yards. The tight ends didn’t catch any of their 3 targets. Mike Gillislee and Jeremy Hill gained a weak 28 yards on 11 carries (15 of those yards came on a single Gillislee carry, meaning they averaged 1.3 yards on their other 10 attempts).It wasn’t their best performance.Phillip Dorsett looked really good!Dorsett was one of the lone bright spots in the first half for the Patriots as he collected all 4 of his targets for 36 yards. Those catches included 16 yards on 1st-and-10 and a 6-yard gain on 4th-and-3. He looked quick with the football in his hands and he was able to contribute on short passes- a sign of development after only really being a deep ball target in 2017.With Julian Edelman suspended for the first four games of the year, Dorsett really has a chance to be the Patriots leading receiver, which is kind of a scary thought- but is closer to reality than anyone could have projected last year.Here are some young players that look to be in the running for playing time:Keionta Davis started on the defensive line opposite of Deatrich Wise Jr. and they’re likely to be the top defensive ends behind Trey Flowers and Adrian Clayborn. Derek Rivers is likely to get a year to prove himself. Ja’Whaun Bentley got some playing time behind Elandon Roberts, but both seem like strong bets to make the roster.Eric Rowe started opposite of Stephon Gilmore and should be the presumed starter.On offense, Dorsett was the only youngster that really made any strong claim. Here are some veterans looking in from the outsideThe Patriots sprinkled in some Eric Decker didn’t play until the second half, and while Cordarrelle Patterson played in the first half with the first team Youth Lawrence Guy Jersey , he was also playing late into the fourth quarter.Jeremy Hill suffered an injury that could hand a roster spot to Mike Gillislee. Hopefully it’s not serious.Offensive linemen Luke Bowanko, Brian Schwenke, and Matt Tobin were all playing in the second half and will have a hard time making the roster.Will Tye did not make the most of his opportunities, getting blown away as a run blocker and not pulling down his target opportunity.Marquis Flowers was playing behind both Roberts and Bentley, which should be slightly concerning since he hasn’t played much this preseason.Jason McCourty was with the second-team cornerbacks opposite of Keion Crossen. Cyrus Jones was the slot receiver. We could be looking at a top five of Gilmore, Rowe, McCourty, Crossen, and either Jonathan Jones or Cyrus Jones.

During his Monday afternoon press conference, Jackson expressed his displeasure with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams chastising defensive back Denzel’s Ward’s tackling technique. Ward left last week’s preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles after experiencing back spasms following a tackle on Eagles tight end Zach Ertz. When asked about it during his time with the media on Sunday, Williams pulled no punches in describing what he saw on the play, according to clevelandbrowns.com:That did not sit well with Jackson Genard Avery Jersey , who told the assembled media members on Monday that the Browns do not need to be calling each other out in the media, according to Tom Withers of the Associated Press:This is the second time during training camp that Jackson has expressed displeasure at one of his assistant coaches for speaking openly with the media. On July 29, offensive line coach Bob Wylie said that moving Joel Bitonio from left guar to left tackle would be a last resort. On Aug. 1, Jackson announced that Bitonio was moving to left tackle and told the assembled media members that they “ask the coaches way too many questions.”Jackson and the entire NFL knows that Williams lacks a filter when he speaks Authentic Seth DeValve Jersey , so it is a bit odd that Jackson would be bothered by Williams speaking candidly about a player. Not to mention the irony of doing so to the media.The regular season can’t get here soon enough. Custom Oakland Raiders Jerseys

(AP) — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will need season-ending surgery on his injured left knee.The 49ers said Monday that an MRI confirmed the team's fears that Garoppolo tore his ACL while making a cut late in a loss at Kansas City.

Tyrod Taylor’s legs are key to Browns victory over
Jets Say what you want about Tyrod Taylor’s passing ability http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/myles-garrett-jersey , his legs could end up being the difference in a Thursday night game that should be a grind for both teams.Taylor has always excelled in escaping the pocket and hurting defenses that don’t account for him at all times. Through two weeks in Cleveland, Taylor’s 103 rushing yards—on just 12 attempts—is good enough second on the team in rushing, trailing starting running back Carlos Hyde by only two yards. As Rotoworld’s Evan Silva pointed out, Todd Bowles’ man-coverage dominant scheme surrendered the third-most rushing yards to opposing quarterbacks last season. And the unit was gashed last weekend by slightly mobile Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Taylor’s speed and escapability are more conducive to a big game on the ground for the quarterback.This doesn’t mean Taylor can’t hurt the Jets through the air. And the Jets, having seen him frequently in two games each over the last three seasons Authentic Myles Garrett Jersey , are very aware of his threat as a runner. That insecurity could force the Jets into the tough position of having to spy Taylor with a linebacker, which will obviously help open things up in the short and intermediate passing games, at the very least.Taylor’s dual-threat ability should definitely come into play, and it’ll be a key factor in determining whether the Browns finally get a victory. The biggest question regarding the Browns’ coaching search possibly has been answered. In theory.According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, G.M. John Dorsey will run the search for a new coach. Writes Cabot of Dorsey: “[H]e鈥檒l lead the charge and will have full authority to conduct it any way he wants — and make his first career coaching hire.”That sounds good in theory Jarvis Landry Jersey Elite , but as a practical matter (given the team’s recent history) ownership could be involved. And ownership will have opinions. And ownership may have preferences. And ownership will surely downplay the connection between ownership’s opinions and preferences in order to diminish the perception of meddling.The reality could be very different, especially with two months to plan the search, which undoubtedly will include plenty of off-the-record communications to candidates who may be interested, and plenty of off-the-record communications from candidates who may be interested.Given the presence of quarterback Baker Mayfield, plenty of coaches will want the job. Ultimately http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey , the challenge will be making a decision at the exclusion of all other viable options. Custom New England Patriots Jerseys

When Brewers pitchers went over the strengths and weaknesses of Cincinnati’s hitters to prepare for their series Adrian Clayborn Color Rush Jersey , they included reliever Michael Lorenzen in the mix.

They need to do more studying.

Lorenzen hit the second grand slam by a Reds pitcher in a week – and his third homer in his last three at-bats – as Cincinnati pulled away to a 12-3 victory Saturday, ending a seven-game losing streak against Milwaukee.

Lorenzen’s pinch-hit grand slam off Jacob Barnes in the seventh inning completed an eight-run rally, Cincinnati’s biggest of the season. Lorenzen’s fifth career homer drew a curtain call from the crowd of 24,640.

”It was a surreal feeling, for sure,” Lorenzen said. ”I love this game and everything about it.”

It was the reliever’s second homer in the series. He also had a solo shot Friday during Milwaukee’s 8-2 win.

”The guy’s swinging the bat really well, that’s for sure,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. ”We treat him as a position player. We covered him in scouting meetings. We’re going to have to make some adjustments.”

One week earlier, Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani hit a grand slam off Cubs left-hander Brian Duensing at Great American Ball Park.

Lorenzen avoided the temptation to swing at a slider, and then hit a fastball deep to left field.

”The Reds have always put together some good-hitting pitchers, going back to Travis Wood and those guys,” Brewers catcher Erik Kratz said. ”You have to know who those guys are and where they want the ball and not throw it there.”

Tyler Mahle struck out a career-high 12 batters in 5 2/3 innings, three shy of the Reds’ rookie record. David Hernandez (3-0) pitched the top of the seventh.

The Reds fanned 18 batters Paul Worrilow Color Rush Jersey , a club record for a nine-inning game.

The Brewers’ depleted bullpen couldn’t hold a one-run lead in the seventh. Cincinnati’s first eight batters reached safely against three relievers, with left-hander Mike Zagurski (0-1) taking the loss in his first major league appearance since 2013.

The NL Central leaders also were missing two starting position players. Christian Yelich left Thursday’s game with back tightness, and Ryan Braun came out of Friday’s game with the same issue. Counsell said Braun could be available on Sunday.

Eric Thames homered off Mahle, his 14th home run in 22 career games against Cincinnati. Thames hit 10 last year, the most by a Brewers player against the Reds in one season.


The last pinch-hit grand slam by a Reds player came from Chris Heisey on April 13, 2014, against Tampa Bay. Lorenzen’s three homers this season are the most by a Reds pitcher since Micah Owings had three in 2009. The last major league pitcher to homer in three straight at-bats was Colorado’s Mike Hampton in 2001.


In the last eight days, Reds pitchers have produced four homers – three by Lorenzen, one by DeSclafani. For the season, Lorenzen is 4 for 6 with three homers and six RBIs.


Mahle’s 12 strikeouts were the most by a Reds pitcher since Amir Garrett also fanned 12 Orioles on April 19, 2017. The club record for strikeouts by a rookie is 15 by Gary Nolan on June 7, 1967, against the Giants.


With the game out of hand Richard Rodgers Color Rush Jersey , Kratz moved to the mound for the eighth inning – his third career pitching appearance – and gave up a pair of runs.

”I’d rather catch nine innings and do high-fives,” he said.


The Reds sent minor league catcher Joe Hudson to the Angels for cash. The 27-year-old Hudson has never played in the majors. He batted .235 with no homers and three RBIs in 16 games for Triple-A Louisville this season.


Brewers: RHP Zach Davies had a setback in what was expected to be his final minor league rehab assignment as he recovers from a sore shoulder. He lasted only three innings and gave up 10 runs and three hits for Class A Wisconsin on Friday night, leaving after just 48 pitches because of a sore back.

Reds: RHP Homer Bailey will make his fourth rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Louisville. He’s been sidelined since June 2 because of a sore right knee. Bailey is 1-7 with a 6.68 ERA.


Brewers: Freddy Peralta (3-0) makes his fifth start. The Brewers are 4-0 in his starts. Opponents are batting .093 against the right-hander.

Reds: Matt Harvey (3-5) makes his 10th start for the Reds, who got him from the Mets in a trade for catcher Devin Mesoraco on May 8. Harvey has allowed six runs in his last three starts spanning 17 2/3 innings.

Tennessee offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie might have been the happiest person at practice watching quarterback Marcus Mariota look like, well, Mariota.

The quarterback brushed aside a safety with a stiff-arm on his way to a big run.

When Mariota is running, the Titans are usually all smiles because their offense shows signs of life.

”That’s what we know he’s capable of doing, and when he’s capable of doing that, it helps our offense again I’ll tell you probably 80 percent,” Robiskie said Wednesday. ”I hate to say that, but if he can’t do that or he’s in position that he can’t do that or that don’t happen, we’re not the offense we’re trying to be.”

Mariota ran a career-high 10 times for a season-high 60 yards to help the Titans earn their first playoff berth since 2008. Better yet, teammates saw a swagger in Mariota as he got off the ground and stared down a defender to make them confident their quarterback is feeling good Joseph Noteboom Color Rush Jersey , possibly even as he did before a broken right leg ended his 2016 season a game early.

”That’s old Marcus, before the injury,” Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey. ”That’s him. This is the Marcus I been waiting to see — him using them legs and making things happen. We need to see that more out of him going forward.”

Titans coach Mike Mularkey loved Mariota’s body language, and now the Titans (9-7) need their quarterback who won the 2014 Heisman Trophy to keep running Saturday when they visit Kansas City (10-6) for an AFC wild-card game.

”We’re at that point right now when every man needs to do whatever he can, whatever it takes, to make this thing go,” Mularkey said. ”It was good to see what he did the other night. Obviously, it helped us win the football game. I think it helped him gain a little confidence too that he can do more.”

An NFL quarterback needing a confidence boost sounds unusual, but Mariota’s third season with the Titans has easily been his worst statistically with a career-low 13 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Mariota has a career-high five TDs rushing, but the quarterback who missed six quarters in October with a strained left hamstring had his lowest average per carry yet at 5.2 yards per attempt.

The Titans dropped from third in the NFL in rushing last season to 15th this season.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid has seen enough of Mariota after the quarterback led a game-winning drive late last season to know they have to be careful when he starts running.

”You don’t ever get tricked by that kind of speed that he has,” Reid said. ”When he kicks that thing into overdrive, he can go, so you have to stay very disciplined with him. That will be one of the challenges for my defense.”

Mariota Brian Allen Color Rush Jersey , who converted four first downs with his legs in the fourth quarter of last week’s 15-10 win over the Jaguars , said he just took advantage of how Jacksonville was playing the Titans. Mariota says running came partially from feeling better and simple necessity.

”At this point in time, every guy is probably not going to feel 100 percent,” Mariota said. ”It’s just that time of the year. With the magnitude of these games, you’ve got to win these games. You’re going to find a way to make a play and hopefully help your team win.”

Mariota has heard a lot from friends and fans on how he stiff-armed Jaguars safety Barry Church. So does he think he has his ”swagger” back just in time for his NFL playoff debut?

”It was just me being me,” Mariota said. ”Again, I’m going to do whatever it takes to win. This is the time in the season where you’ve just got to lay it all on the line.”

Notes: Derrick Henry said Wednesday he was not happy at all with his performance last week with 28 carries for 51 yards. He took a screen 66 yards for the Titans’ lone offensive touchdown. But Henry said he didn’t feel like a workhorse back and ”kind of felt soft.” Henry says he hasn’t stopped thinking about that game since the game ended and has been working hard to be better. … RB DeMarco Murray (right knee), CB Logan Ryan and S Da’Norris Searcy (illness) and CB Brice McCain (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Here’s a look at what’s happening around the major leagues today:


The Red Sox and Yankees start a three-game series in the Bronx Blake Martinez Jersey , with the American League East division race as tight as ever. Boston comes in with a one-game lead, with the teams still toting the top two records in the major leagues. Boston and New York have split their first six matchups this season, with each team winning a home series so far.

CC Sabathia takes the mound for the Yankees. The 37-year-old left-hander took a no-decision against the Red Sox with four runs allowed in four innings on May 10. Boston counters with Eduardo Rodriguez, who is coming off just his second loss of the season against Seattle last week. Rodriguez also squared off against Sabathia in that May 10 meeting at Yankee Stadium, striking out eight with only one hit allowed over five scoreless innings.

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is expected back in the lineup after sitting out the series finale at Philadelphia on Wednesday that manager Aaron Boone wanted to pair with a day off on Thursday. Judge has 34 strikeouts in 25 career games against the Red Sox.


The Chicago Cubs return home from a 2-6 finish on an eight-game road trip to host the Minnesota Twins, but they’ll start the series without ailing right-hander Yu Darvish. The 31-year-old is still feeling pain in his pitching arm, having been dealt a setback during a bullpen session on Thursday in Los Angeles where the Cubs split a four-game set with the Dodgers.

Darvish was on track to rejoin the rotation on Saturday, but Tyler Chatwood will take the mound in that game instead. Darvish, who threw five innings and 57 pitches for Class A South Bend in a rehabilitation start on Monday, has been on the disabled list for more than a month, his second stint of the season, because of triceps tendinitis. Darvish Ty Montgomery Jersey , who has a 4.95 ERA in eight starts, signed a $126 million, six-year contract with the Cubs in February.


Minnesota plays the Cubs at Wrigley Field for the first time since 2009, continuing the easiest three-city road trip possible for the Twins. They arrived in Chicago earlier this week, losing two of three to the White Sox while needing 13 innings to salvage the final game on Thursday afternoon. Next week, it’s a brief bus ride north to Milwaukee for three games against the Brewers.

Jose Berrios, who has a 2.05 ERA over his last eight starts, faces Cubs left-hander Mike Montgomery in the opener.


National League Central leader Milwaukee continues a four-game series in Cincinnati, with the Brewers sending Chase Anderson to the mound after striking out a season-high nine batters in his previous outing against St. Louis. Sal Romano pitches for the Reds against a dangerous Brewers lineup featuring Jesus Aguilar, who hit his 19th home run on Thursday to tie for the league lead.

Mike Minor wasn’t so broken up about losing his perfect game bid in the seventh inning. He would’ve liked a shot at a complete-game shutout, though.

Minor took a perfect game into the seventh inning, Shin-Soo Choo reached base for the 40th straight game and the Texas Rangers beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Wednesday night.

Minor was perfect until Eric Hosmer’s single up the middle with one out in the seventh. One out later http://www.officialstarsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-brett-ritchie-jersey , center fielder Delino DeShields preserved Minor’s shutout by leaping to rob Hunter Renfroe of a home run.

Minor struck out five and threw only 85 pitches through seven innings, yet manager Jeff Banister decided to go to the bullpen after that. That drew a pointed response from Minor: ”Why?”

”I don’t have a complete game shutout in my career, so I still had some goals,” Minor said. ”With the pitch count being low, I feel I could have still went out there and possibly finished the game.”

”He grinded hard,” Banister said. ”I told him if there were only zeroes on the board, it would have been yours all the way.”

Minor (6-4), making his 125th career start since August 2010, said the thought of a perfect game got stronger each inning.

”Just try to make pitches,” he said. ”It was still a close ballgame.”

Minor benefited from two other strong defensive plays.

In the fifth inning, Jose Pirela hit a sharp grounder into the hole on the left side of the infield with two outs. Shortstop Elvis Andrus‘ long throw barely beat Pirela. Austin Hedges then hit a 105-mph liner to third baseman Adrian Beltre for the second out of the sixth inning.

”I thought, honestly Dan Hamhuis Jersey Kids , we had some hittable pitches early and missed them,” Padres manager Andy Green said. ”He wasn’t pitching the type of game that lent itself to what he was getting results-wise.”

Texas has won nine of its last 11 games while San Diego has lost nine of its last 11.

The Padres scored twice in the eighth inning but left the bases loaded. Keone Kela pitched a perfect ninth for his 20th save, the most in the majors this season without a blown save and a club record to begin a season.

Clayton Richard (7-7) hit three batters and allowed four runs and a season-high 10 hits over seven innings. He sought his career-best fifth consecutive winning start.

Minor signed with Texas as a free agent last December. He returned to the majors in 2017 after having shoulder surgery in 2015. He made 65 relief appearances for the Kansas City Royals last year.


As Minor pursued perfection, he was pitching to rookie Isiah Kiner-Falefa, an infielder making only his third big league start as a catcher.

”Izzy back there did a great job first time catching me,” Minor said. ”I didn’t really know what to expect.”


Choo tied Philadelphia’s Odubel Herrera for the longest on-base streak in the majors this season. Choo was hit by a pitch leading off the first inning and also had two hits to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. His on-base streak is the fourth longest in Rangers history.


Beltre’s third-inning RBI double was No. 624 of his career, tying him with Hank Aaron for 12th on the career list. … The first-pitch temperature of 101 degrees made it the hottest game played in the majors this season. … The Padres used their 77th different lineup this season, second most in the majors, playing their 83rd game.


Texas RF Nomar Mazara (tight left hamstring) was held out of the lineup for the first time since June 16.


Padres: Rookie LHP Eric Lauer (3-4, 5.05) will open the weekend series vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday.

Rangers: RHP Yovani Gallardo (1-0, 12.08) will make his third start for Texas on Friday at home against the Chicago White Sox.

MINNEAPOLIS — Kevin Gausman has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal season for the Baltimore Orioles Devin Shore Jersey , who bring the worst record in baseball to Target Field on Saturday as they continue a four-game series with the Minnesota Twins.

Gausman takes the mound with a 2.76 ERA in his last five outings and is fresh off perhaps one of his best starts of the year. He held the Los Angeles to one run and two hits and didn’t walk a batter in eight innings on July 2 for his first victory since May 11 — a span of nine starts — and is now 4-6 with a 4.05 ERA this season.

“I felt like early on in the season, I kind of put together a little bit better of a month, but I feel like I’m throwing the ball well,” Gausman said. “I feel really good in my delivery, and ever since I went hands over the head,

“I feel like this has just been night and day, able to command the ball and really all my off-speed pitches. That’s the key word — consistency. You’re always trying to be the same guy every five days.”

Orioles manager Buck Showalter thinks Gausman’s success this season is overlooked in part because of the team’s record, but also because of the competition he has faced.

“I don’t chuckle or eye-roll or any of that stuff,” Showalter said. “When I hear people kind of negative, Kevin has cut his teeth in the American League East and he’s kind of a good hardened to it. This guy doesn’t dwell around too much on successes and failures.”

Success has been hard to come by for the Orioles lately and failure has been plentiful.

Baltimore’s loss Friday night in Minnesota extended its losing streak to four games. The Orioles have dropped 11 of their last 12 games and 22 of their last 27 overall while winning only two in their last seven series.

They’ll try to turn that around Saturday against Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson, who has been the poster child for lack of run support this season.

He has allowed more than three runs in a game just once since May 18 — a span of eight starts — but has taken the victory just twice. In the six other games, the Twins have averaged just 1.8 runs.

Gibson hasn’t let the tough luck get to him.

“We’ll start being on the right side of these games,” Gibson said. “We’ve just been running into some pitchers throwing the ball well and caught a couple tough breaks offensively.”

His last two starts haven’t been among his best. He allowed a season-high five runs and 11 hits against the White Sox on June 27 in Chicago and the Milwaukee Brewers followed by tagging him for four (three earned) in five innings earlier this week in Milwaukee.

Saturday will mark Gibson’s ninth career start against the Orioles. In the eight previous meetings, he’s 3-2 with a 5.06 ERA.

He faced them once already this season Womens Esa Lindell Jersey , throwing six no-hit innings with six strikeouts on March 31 in Baltimore.

Jose Bautista had never before experienced the euphoria of a game-ending home run during his 15-year big league career. He can add that to his list of accomplishments.

Bautista’s grand slam with two outs in theninth inning lifted the New York Mets over the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 on Friday night.

”I was aware of it,” Bautista of his first walk-off homer. ”I guess sometimes it just takes a while.”

Todd Frazier walked and Devin Mesoraco singled to open the ninth against Chaz Roe (1-2). Amed Rosario’s sacrifice advanced the runners, Roe retired pinch-hitter Dominic Smith on a comebacker and intentionally walked Brandon Nimmo to load the bases.

Roe tried to come inside with a sinker on the first pitch to the slugger, who has 32 home runs in 157 games against Tampa Bay.

”Tried to get ahead early with the sinker and got too much of the plate,” Roe said. ”I knew he was swinging there.”

It was Bautista’s sixth homer of the season and gave the Mets their third win in their last 19 games at home.

Bautista remained unsigned through spring training, signed with Atlanta on April 18 and was promoted to the majors on May 4. He appeared at third base – a position he hadn’t played in years – and hit .143 (5 for 35) with a two homers and five RBIs in 12 games before he was released on May 20.

Lacking power after Yoenis Cespedes went on the disabled list, New York took a chance on Bautista two days later.

In 39 games with the Mets, the 37-year-old has hit .227 with four home runs and 18 RBIs. But over his last 17 games, Bautista is hitting .330 (15 for 50) with four homers and 15 RBIs.

And he’s certainly amazed Mets manager Mickey Callaway.

”I think that from what we’ve seen as a Met, it’s been outstanding,” Callaway said.” Top-tier production out of a guy that we got from Atlanta, who let him go. So that’s surprising. Now the guy himself, who has a body of a 25-year-old, stays in shape? Can never count those guys out.”

Tampa Bay had a chance to take the lead in the top of the ninth against Jeurys Familia (4-4).

He Daniel Robertson with a pitch Jamie Benn Jersey , loading the bases, and first baseman Wilmer Flores threw out pinch-runner Hunter Wood at the plate despite his high throw following Mallex Smith’s grounder. Umpires confirmed the call after Tampa Bay challenged.

Familia then struck out Willy Adames to end the threat.

Jacob deGrom was once again stellar for the Mets, allowing just one run and four hits while striking out eight and issuing one walk over eight innings.

It was the ninth no-decision for the staff ace.

”Like I said before, the goal is to win, whether I get the win or somebody else,” deGrom said. ”The goal is to win baseball games and we got a win tonight.”

Asdrubal Cabrera gave the Mets a 1-0 lead in the third with an RBI single.

DeGrom, who has an 1.80 ERA in nine starts at Citi Field this season, gave up a tying solo homer to Adames in the fifth.


New York announced the signings of their top two targets in the new international free agent period. The Mets gave a franchise-record $2.7 million signing bonus to 16-year-old Francisco Alvarez from Venezuela. Alvarez was ranked No. 9 on Baseball America’s prospect list, and 13th on the MLB Pipeline list.

Freddy Valdez, a 16-year-old outfielder from the Dominican Republic, received a $1.45 million signing bonus. Baseball America had him as the 29th best prospect, MLB Pipeline ranked him at No. 25.


Tampa signed LHP Shane McClanahan, the 31st overall pick in the draft, for a $2 Jason Spezza Jersey ,230,100 bonus, $5,700 above slot value. He was a compensation pick for the loss of Alex Cobb in free agency. RHP Matthew Liberatore, taken with the 16th pick, made his debut with the GCL Rays on Friday. He allowed one earned run, one hit, and two walks with one strikeout and a hit batter in 1 2/3 innings, getting the loss.


Rays: RHP Chris Archer will return to the rotation and start Monday against Detroit. The ace has been on the disabled list June 5 due to a left abdominal strain. Archer is 3-4 with a 4.24 ERA in 13 starts this season.

Mets: Manager Mickey Callaway said that it would be ”ideal” for RHP Noah Syndergaard to start July 13 vs against Washington if all goes well with his rehab start Sunday at Class A Brooklyn.


Rays: Tampa Bay recalled LHP Adam Kolarek from Triple-A Durham and designated OF Jerry Hazelbaker for assignment.

Mets: RHP Paul Sewald was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas and LHP Jerry Blevins was placed on the bereavement list.


Rays: Blake Snell (11-4, 2.24 ERA) starts the second game of the series. Snell has won his last three outings, allowing just two runs and eight hits while striking out 26 despite 12 walks in 21 innings.

Mets: Steven Matz (4-5, 3.46) gets the nod in his first start against Tampa Bay. Opponents are hitting just .167 (17 for 102) with runners in scoring position against the New York lefty.

The Minnesota Twins have reinstated shortstop Jorge Polanco after he served an 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

Polanco was reinstated Monday before the Twins’ game with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Speaking through the team’s interpreter John Klingberg Jersey , Polanco said that the time away from the game ”was very difficult.”

The Twins are hoping that the 24-year-old shortstop builds off his breakout 2017 season. Polanco batted .316 with 10 homers and 42 RBIs over his last 55 games in 2017.

”I’m really glad that I’m back,” he said. ”Looking forward to going out there and playing hard.”

Polanco flied out to left in his first at bat of the 2018 season.

Twins manager Paul Molitor welcomed Polanco back.

”It’s good to see him,” Molitor said. ”He had to pay a price for something that happened. He took it head on, took accountability and did his time, so to speak.”

Molitor had a bit of advice for Polanco.

”Be yourself,” Molitor said. ”Don’t worry about trying to make an extreme impression or whatever it might be that you might try to make up for lost time. Just be the player that we know that you can be. That’ll be plenty good enough.”

To make room for Polanco on the 40-man roster, the Twins designated outfielder Ryan LaMarre for release or assignment.

The NFL has established a player-owner committee focusing on social and racial justice initiatives that Commissioner Roger Goodell cautions is just a start, with lots of work ahead.

Goodell credited ”unprecedented dialogue” for helping players and owners get to the point of Tuesday’s announcement. He said the committee will focus on education Mattias Janmark Jersey , economic development, community and police relations and the criminal justice system.

”We feel that we are going to make significant progress as we have more meetings, as we get more focused on our efforts, it’s going to actually come to life,” Goodell said. ”And frankly, we will get better as the days go by.”

The league also said Tuesday it is beginning a ”Let’s Listen Together” campaign that includes digital content and commercials highlighting player-led work on equality issues. That platform will include social media support and letters from players and owners.

Owners on the committee are Arizona’s Michael Bidwill, Atlanta’s Arthur Blank, Jacksonville’s Shahid Khan Jim Kelly Jersey , Cleveland’s Jimmy Haslam and Miami’s Stephen Ross. Current players Chris Long, Josh Norman, and Kelvin Beachum, Pro Football Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams and former player Anquan Boldin are on the committee.

Blank said he was impressed with the consensus among owners and players at a meeting in December at the league office. The Falcons owner also sees these issues requiring sustainability.

”Clearly, we’re not at the end of the fourth quarter,” Blank said.

This season, many players took knees during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice, drawing rebukes from President Donald Trump.

Boldin says the initiative should be ”celebrated” because the NFL is the ”first professional league or entity that has taken the concerns of its players and put resources behind it.”

”We’re dedicated to making a difference in our communities Thurman Thomas Jersey ,” Boldin said. ”We’re dedicated to seeing a difference in our criminal justice system. We’re dedicated to educating not only ourselves, but the public as well how there are different biases when it comes to our criminal justice system. We’re excited about the partnership and the backing of the NFL that we have now.”

Linebacker Demario Davis of the New York Jets thanked owner Chris Johnson for sitting down with players and supporting them during sessions that included meetings with public defenders.

Defensive end Long credited Eagles teammate Malcolm Jenkins for his work and socially conscious team owner Jeffrey Lurie for his support as they work for ”common sense reforms.”

Long noted Jenkins rounded up some of the Eagles for a trip to the state capital to meet with lawmakers hours after a Monday night game. He said some of the Eagles also have met Philadelphia police and attended bail hearings, which he called an arbitrary process.

”We do have a powerful voice,” Long said.

Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin Vontae Davis Jersey , who has struggled with mental health issues after a 2013 bullying scandal that shook the NFL, was questioned by Los Angeles police after a threatening Instagram post on his account mentioned two former teammates who had harassed him.

Martin was detained by investigators after the post showed a shotgun and referred by name to the private Harvard-Westlake prep school in Los Angeles that he once attended but was not under arrest Friday evening, police spokesman Josh Rubenstein said.

The post also included mentions of the Instagram usernames of former Miami Dolphins players Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey and said suicide and revenge were the only options for a victim of bullying.

The Harvard-Westlake prep school was evacuated earlier Friday after officials were made aware of the post. It was not immediately clear whether Martin posted the photo himself.

Martin left the Miami Dolphins midseason in 2013 after accusing teammates of bullying. An NFL investigation found that Incognito, Pouncey and teammate John Jerry engaged in persistent harassment directed at Martin.

Incognito was suspended for the final eight games and sat out the 2014 season before joining the Buffalo Bills.

The NFL’s investigation also found that teammates threatened to rape Martin’s sister, called him a long list of slurs and bullied him for not being ”black enough.” Martin is black and Incognito is white.

Martin, who underwent counseling for emotional issues after the bullying scandal, posted on Facebook in 2015 that difficulties in football led him to attempt suicide multiple times.

Martin, the son of two Harvard graduates, attended Stanford University. After he left the Dolphins, Martin played for the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers. He left the NFL in 2015.

Representatives for the Miami Dolphins and the NFL declined to comment and referred questions to Los Angeles police.

More than two weeks after he returned to the disabled list for a second time this season, the Boston Red Sox have no timetable for second baseman Dustin Pedroia’s return.

Pedrioa underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee last October and began the season on the disabled list. He began a minor league rehab assignment last month and was added to the Boston roster on May 26.

But Pedroia lasted just three games Lane Taylor Jersey , going 1 for 11 with a pair of walks, and when soreness in the knee remained, the team put him back on the shelf on May 30.

“It was a major surgery,” manager Alex Cora said. “We didn’t know what to expect, so we are where we are now. We’re hoping that, yeah, he’ll be back. When? We don’t know. But I still believe he’s going to contribute this season and he’s going to help us to win.”

Without Pedroia in the lineup, Cora has turned primarily to Eduardo Nunez at second base with Brock Holt getting 17 starts as well. Overall, Red Sox second basemen have combined for a .614 OPS and rank second-to-last in baseball with a minus-12 Defensive Runs Saved.

Nunez will likely get the nod again Wednesday night as the Red Sox continue their three-game series with the Twins at Target Field behind left-hander David Price, who is 6-0 with a 2.64 ERA over his last seven starts.

“Better fastball command, just commanding the baseball better Andre Holmes Jersey ,” Price said of his recent success. “Making better pitches with runners in scoring position. That was a big problem for me in the times I struggled this year, just runners in scoring position. Four two-out runs in Oakland that day. All the runs were with two outs. Same thing my third outing against Tampa back at home. That was two-run outs as well.”

Price is 10-3 with a 2.52 ERA in 17 games, 16 of them starts, against the Twins.

Lance Lynn, the Twins’ scheduled starter, is starting to look much more like the pitcher Minnesota had in mind when it signed the veteran right-hander to a one-year deal during spring training.

Lynn slumped out to a 8.37 ERA through his first five starts but has gone 4-2 with a 3.20 ERA in eight starts since, working at least six innings in all but two of those outings.

He struck out a season-high nine with just one walk his last time out but took his first loss since May 16 after the Tigers for tagged him for three runs in the seventh inning.

“You’ve got to get through the seventh there. I wasn’t able to do it,” Lynn said after the game. “Everything was still there. Just made one bad pitch and ran into a barrel. … Ended up giving up three runs and it cost us the win.”

Lynn has three career starts against the Red Sox, going 0-1 with a 1.89 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 19 innings of work. He last faced Boston late in the 2017 season but did not take a decision after allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings.

Kirk Cousins says he is likely to wait until March for any possible negotiations with the Washington Redskins Logan Thomas Jersey , indicating he would first make the team decide whether to apply a transition or franchise tag on him for the third year in a row.

Appearing at a fan forum aired live on 106.7 The Fan, the local radio station on which the quarterback makes weekly regular-season appearances, Cousins said Friday he believes the Redskins are ”all-in” on trying to sign him to a long-term contract.

”I see us taking our time. I see us waiting and being patient,” Cousins said.

”Let’s see what they do,” he added later during the nearly two-hour question-and-answer session. ”I don’t need to force anybody’s hand.”

He said his agent, Mike McCartney, counseled him to decline the team’s attempt to reach a lengthy deal late in the 2015 season, Cousins’ first as an NFL starter. Cousins also rejected the notion that there was any lingering hesitancy on the Redskins’ part about whether they wanted to try to keep him.

”I think they were all-in last summer,” Cousins said. ”I feel at peace about their belief in me and where they’re going forward from here.”

Washington went 9-7, 8-7-1 and 7-9 in Cousins’ three seasons as its starting QB after taking over for Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner taken with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft. Cousins was picked in the fourth round that year out of Michigan State and began his pro career as a backup.

But under coach Jay Gruden, Cousins became the first Redskins quarterback to start all 16 games in each of three consecutive seasons. He topped 4,000 yards passing in each, while totaling 81 touchdowns and 36 interceptions.

After Cousins closed this season with a three-interception game in a loss to the New York Giants, Gruden offered a tepid assessment of the player earlier this week, saying: ”When you’re 7-9, it’s hard to say, `Wow, this guy really was outstanding.”’

Cousins didn’t hide Friday that he was bothered by that, questioning whether it is proper to imply that the team’s losing record and its ”quarterback play are causally related.”

The 29-year-old’s status is the biggest question hovering over Washington’s offseason. He has played each of the past two seasons on a franchise tag – the first QB ever to be assigned that label twice in a row – and earned nearly $44 million in the process. The Redskins were not allowed to negotiate with Cousins during the season Nathan Peterman Jersey , but now that their games are done, they can make offers.

One option is an unprecedented third franchise tag, which locks him in at one more season with the club and comes at a prohibitive cost of about $34 million. Another option is a transition tag, which would be worth about $28 million, but would let Cousins entertain offers from other teams, while giving Washington the right to match.

If he is tagged yet again, Cousins said he anticipates that he would sign it right away, the way he did each of the past two years.

The sides also could try to reach an agreement for multiple years.

”There’s a part of me that would like to get settled,” Cousins said, adding later: ”You can only go year-to-year for so long.”

Rookie right-hander Freddy Peralta seems to make history every time he steps on the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers barely weeks into his major league career.

Fittingly enough, too, since he’s about to face a Cincinnati Reds pitching staff — mainly, reliever Michael Lorenzen — that is doing some pretty historic things themselves. Only with their bats and not their arms.

The 22-year-old Peralta is 3-0 with a 1.59 ERA in his first four major league starts, including two in which he has struck out 10 or more and allowed only one hit. He’s the first pitcher in baseball’s live-ball ERA to do that, and the first Brewers pitcher to have two such games in a career.

How good has Peralta been? He has permitted more than two hits in only one of the four starts. In 22 2/3 innings, he has allowed only seven hits and struck out 35.

Peralta is the first major league pitcher since at least 1908 to give up three hits or fewer and strike out at least five in each of his first four career games.

“His stuff looks electric from center field, and you can see that in the swings and takes and called strikeouts,” Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich told reporters after Peralta pitched seven shutout innings of one-hit ball to beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Tuesday. “He’s been great every time he goes out there, and hopefully that continues.”

Peralta is doing it without an overpowering fastball, like so many other young pitchers are today. He’s throwing his four-seam fastball at an average velocity of 91.2 mph Dion Dawkins Jersey , or about what an average starter threw 15 years or so ago.

“He’s got a high spin rate and the ball just kind of jumps at you, even though it’s 92 mph,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.

If the last-place Reds can get to Peralta on Sunday at Great American Ball Park — and no team has yet — they would split a four-game series in which they lost the first two games.

Cincinnati bounced back from a 3-2 deficit Saturday with an eight-run seventh inning powered by a pinch-grand slam from Lorenzen off a Jacobs Barnes fastball and went on to win 12-3 for its 10th victory in 13 games.

“Michael Lorenzen was pretty special,” Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said.

Pinch-hit grand slams are rare enough. But by a pitcher?

What’s even more remarkable is Lorenzen also homered Friday night during an 8-2 Brewers victory, and he homered in his previous at-bat before that while pinch hitting against the Chicago Cubs on June 24.

“I love playing baseball,” Lorenzen said. “Every day, I look forward to contributing in some form.”

That’s three homers in the last three at-bats for Lorenzen, who’s quickly becoming the National League’s bullpen equivalent of the Angels’ multi-dimensional Shohei Ohtani.

Lorenzen is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in 15 games, and he’s 4-for-6 at the plate. He’s the first pitcher with multiple pinch homers in a season since Brooks Kieschnick in 2003 — and he has done it in only a week.

“The guy’s swinging the bat really well, that’s for sure,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “We treat him as a position player. Obviously, we’ve got to make some adjustments … he’s swinging it well.”

Then there’s this: No Reds pitcher had hit a grand slam in 59 years, or since Bob Purkey in 1959, until starter Anthony DeScalfani did it June 23 against the Cubs. Now, Reds pitchers have hit grand slams twice in eight days.

Lorenzen’s homer was more than enough for the Reds to overcome Eric Thames‘ 14th home run against them in the two seasons and his fourth this season — the first three of which were game-winners.

Only two of the Reds’ 15 hits Saturday were for extra bases — Lorenzen’s homer and a Scooter Gennett double — but they were 8-for-16 with runners in scoring position.

Peralta will go up against veteran right-hander Matt Harvey (3-5), who has recently given the Reds a glimpse of his former dominating self with the New York Mets. He has won each of his last two starts, giving up three runs in 12 2/3 innings, after going 0-3 in his previous four starts.

In the soundstage where Johnny Carson and Jay Leno spent four decades filming ”The Tonight Show Phillip Gaines Jersey ,” a former Washington State computer science student named Seagull is pursuing a South Korean teenager with a very big gun.

Their characters’ exploits inside ”Overwatch,” the wildly popular multiplayer game not yet 2 years old, flicker above their heads on an enormous high-definition screen. Hundreds of mostly millennial fans in the renamed, sold-out Blizzard Arena put down their Doritos and roar for the combat between these six-player teams, eventually rising in ecstasy when the Dallas Fuel earn an unexpected point against the powerhouse Seoul Dynasty.

Here’s the new Johnny. He plays video games for a minimum $50,000 salary, health benefits, a retirement savings plan and a chunk of $3.5 million in prize money.

Esports history was made Wednesday night with the debut of the Overwatch League, the first attempt to present elite computer gaming within a traditional North American sports structure comparable to the NBA or NFL. The league’s 12 franchises represent cities from Shanghai to London, and they build teamwork and stress player development while competing on a weekly schedule stretching into summer.

If the esports industry is still in its adolescence, this well-funded venture is a significant milestone in its maturation. The Overwatch League is about to find out whether fans will grow along with it.

”It’s a new frontier,” said Ari Segal, president and chief operating officer of the Los Angeles Valiant. ”It is the biggest, boldest bet in sports and entertainment maybe since the NFL and AFL merged. Maybe since baseball introduced the designated hitter. I don’t even know what it stacks up against, because it is so different.”

Segal had a career as a hockey executive before he moved into esports last year. He is one of many seasoned professionals from traditional sports and business who couldn’t resist the opportunity to shape the future of professional gaming, which has expanded with all the cohesion of a pipe bomb.

Shortly after Blizzard Entertainment published this hero-based, first-person PC shooter to acclaim in 2016, the game developer announced plans for a league backed by deep-pocketed investors ranging from NFL owners Stan Kroenke and Robert Kraft to current giants of the esports scene.

They might not all know their way around a mouse, but they know a growing industry when they see it.

”I come from traditional sports Marshall Newhouse Jersey , and from the outside, it seemed like esports had grown up as this exciting, massive, organic, somewhat unstructured ecosystem that benefited from that fact, but was also held back by it,” said Pete Vlastelica, president and CEO of Major League Gaming, which operates the league for Blizzard’s parent company.

”It felt to me a lot like boxing,” added Vlastelica, a former executive at Fox Sports. ”Anybody can create a circuit. Anybody be a trainer. Anybody can sign a fighter. Anybody can win a belt. But what’s the belt? I think boxing suffers from an ambiguity about whether any particular competition means anything, and it felt like that was really similar in esports.”

The Overwatch League aims to end that ambiguity with traditional sports touchstones, and it made sense to the luminaries from sports, tech and business who dominate the list of investors.

Kroenke, the billionaire owner of Arsenal and the Los Angeles Rams, also owns the Los Angeles Gladiators, who plan to be based within the vast entertainment complex around his Inglewood football stadium after it is completed in 2020. The Boston Uprising are owned by Kraft’s investment group, and they might end up based in Foxborough, Massachusetts Harrison Phillips Jersey , to share some training facilities with the New England Patriots.

The San Francisco Shock’s investor group includes Jennifer Lopez, Shaquille O’Neal and Marshawn Lynch. The Philadelphia Fusion are owned by Comcast Spectacor, and the New York Excelsior are the property of a venture capital fund sponsored by the Wilpon family of New York Mets fame.

Many of the Overwatch League’s owners might not be gamers, but they understand the visceral importance of going to a good event. League commissioner Nate Nanzer is confident it will eventually harness income from ticket sales and concessions and other areas that haven’t meant much in esports so far.

”Why do people go to a Dodger game? You go because it’s more fun to sit with 40,000 other fans and cheer for a home run than it is to do it at home,” Nanzer said. ”Video games are so incredibly mainstream right now. It’s such a big part of our fans’ lives. When people play `Overwatch,’ they play a lot of `Overwatch.’ It’s a special moment to go share that with people who have the same passion as you.”

Although the geographical specificity of the teams is an important part of their future business plans, those home cities are largely theoretical at this point.

For this season and the near future, every team will live in the Los Angeles area and play all its matches in Burbank. Nanzer said the logistics of staging the competition around the globe were too enormous to be solved immediately.

That’s not the only geographical dissonance: The Overwatch League’s only ”European” team, the London Spitfire, are owned by an American esports organization, and its roster consists entirely of South Korean players living in Los Angeles.

But the Overwatch League has bought itself time to find its footing. The league has sponsorship deals with blue-chip companies including HP Inc. and Intel Corp., an

In Carlos Martinez’s first eight starts of the year, the St. Louis Cardinals right-hander pitched at a Cy Young Award level. While his record was only 3-2, his ERA was a miniscule 1.62 and he gave up only five earned runs in a seven-start stretch.

But a strained right lat cost him four weeks, and Martinez hasn’t been the same pitcher since being activated from the 10-day disabled list on June 5. He has walked a whopping 12 batters in 7 2/3 innings, including seven on Sunday in 3 2/3 innings during a 6-3 loss at Cincinnati.

Martinez will need to be sharper Saturday night when St. Louis tries to square its three-game weekend series with the Chicago Cubs at Busch Stadium, where it absorbed a frightful 13-5 pounding Friday night.

Chicago (39-27) produced seven extra-base hits, including homers by Kris Bryant Chris Ivory Jersey , Kyle Schwarber and Ian Happ. Bryant’s two-run blast over the Cubs’ bullpen in the third snapped an 0-for-17 skid, and Schwarber’s 465-foot moonshot to center in the fifth was one of the longest homers in stadium history.

Bryant’s homer also snapped a 24-game streak without a long ball. It came after manager Joe Maddon gave him two days off in Milwaukee, followed by a schedule-enforced off-day on Thursday.

“Rest in this game cures everything,” Maddon said.

Does that work for Martinez as well? Martinez (3-3, 2.50 ERA) admitted he didn’t completely turn it loose in his return outing against Miami on June 5.

He aired it out to 99 mph in his last appearance but simply couldn’t control his breaking pitches and was reduced to a one-pitch pitcher by the time the Reds touched him for four runs in the fourth inning.

While upset with umpire Gerry Davis’ strike zone, Martinez knew command was a bigger issue than what was or wasn’t being called.

“I think some of my breaking balls were not good,” he said. “I couldn’t find the strike zone with my breaking ball and cutter, too. That’s why you saw a lot of four-seamers. They hit a lot of foul balls. I missed a lot.”

Martinez has been up and down in his career against Chicago, going 4-4 with a 4.53 ERA in 24 outings, 14 of them starts. It will be his first start of the year against the Cubs.

Chicago counters with right-hander Kyle Hendricks (4-6, 3.48), who is coming off a 7-1 loss Sunday to Pittsburgh that had little to do with his performance. Hendricks permitted just three hits and a run in five innings, but Pittsburgh’s Josh Harrison led off the game with a homer. The Pirates feasted on the Cubs’ bullpen for five runs in the sixth.

Hendricks has pitched fairly well in his career against the Cardinals (36-31) with little to show for it, going 2-2 in 10 starts with a 3.32 ERA. This will be his first appearance in 2018 against St. Louis.

Chicago’s Friday outburst against Michael Wacha, who had an eight-game winning streak snapped, led to the Cardinals running up the white flag early. They removed catcher Yadier Molina after five innings and even let reliever John Brebbia take an at-bat in the ninth after using all of their position players.

“We were trying to conserve arms and get a couple of guys off their feet,” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said.

Kirk Cousins‘ time with the Washington Redskins is about to end after they chose not to use the franchise tag on the quarterback as expected.

The Redskins have agreed to acquire Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs Trent Murphy Jersey , effectively pushing Cousins into free agency following a tumultuous six years with the club the drafted him. Cousins will be the top free agent available when the league year opens in mid-March and should have no shortage of suitors.

”Next week is now officially the first time since 2007 that I’ll be choosing where to play football,” Cousins posted on Twitter. ”I’m open to suggestions.”

The 29-year-old Cousins is coming off his third consecutive 4,000-yard passing season. In his time as a full-time NFL starter, he has completed 67 percent of his passes for 81 touchdowns, 36 interceptions and a 97.5 QB rating.

Despite previously saying Washington could win with Cousins, coach Jay Gruden said at the scouting combine that ”it’s time for us to move on” and find some continuity at the position.

The Redskins now seemingly have that in Smith Taron Johnson Jersey , who will join the Redskins once the trade becomes official March 14 and has agreed to a four-year extension with $71 million guaranteed.

Cousins could easily command more than that on the open market with the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals and Cleveland Browns among the teams interested in upgrading at quarterback.

After becoming the first QB in NFL history to play two consecutive seasons on the franchise tag – making almost $44 million in the process – Cousins is looking for long-term stability in the wake of almost-weekly questions about his future in Washington persisted over the past few years. Agent Mike McCartney declined to comment on the plans of the Cousins camp in an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

This is perhaps the first time in Cousins’ football career that he has been No. 1 on any list. He did not have any scholarship offers as a high school senior, was not considered a top prospect after four years at Michigan State and got picked in the fourth round in 2012 by the Redskins – the same draft they traded up to make Robert Griffin III the No. 2 pick.
