ARDMORE, Pa. Langston Galloway Jersey . -- Phil Mickelson knew it was going to be close, so he made sure his group could finish the second round of the U.S. Open on Friday. The rule when a round is halted because of darkness is that players have the option to complete a hole. Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Keegan Bradley were on the 17th with the sun falling fast when Lefty spoke to Dustin Johnson in the group ahead of them. "We told DJ and his caddie, Keith Sbarbaro, we may hit one shot and they looked out for it," Mickelson said. Mickelson and Stricker were still on the 17th green when Bradley went over to the 18th green. The Johnson group, still in the fairway, moved to the side so Bradley could hit his tee shot. If the horn were to sound, Mickelsons group would be able to play the final hole because at least one player (Bradley) had teed off on the 18th. "They moved out of the way, and Keegan hit a tee shot, and they went back and finished the hole," Mickelson said. "It was nice of them so we could finish." It turned out they didnt need to rush. The horn didnt sound until everyone in Mickelsons group was on the 18th hole. Mickelson made a 20-foot birdie for a 72 to share the clubhouse lead. Stricker got up-and-down from 40 yards short of the green for a par. He shot 69 and w
LeBron James made The Decision but Kevin Durants own decision to depart Oklahoma City and head for Golden State was the real decision that turned the NBA on its head. Adidas NMD R1 Sun Glow Dame Sko Sollys/Core Sort-Hvid By3034 .Free agency has been part and parcel of American sports for decades but here in the AFL, we are still coming to grips with the pros and cons of the concept. We have already seen numerous players make moves to greener pastures but what does the future hold for the AFL and free agency?At the end of the 2012 AFL season, the commission introduced free agency to a game that had been built on loyalty and tradition. Viewed simplistically, free agency goes against the theory of player loyalty but the game and its requirements evolve and therefore, 2012 brought about the introduction of unrestricted and restricted free agents.Here, we still have a very favourable slant on free agency. Clubs are still provided with compensation for losing a player as a free agent - in some cases a top-10 draft pick.In the NFL, NBA and MLB, it is a free-for-all. You want a player who is a free agent? Then go and get them, no questions asked, no compensation required. The free in free agency truly applies, except when it comes to the pay packets of the free agents themselves, who usually receive a slightly bloated salary for leaving.Kevin Durant gave Oklahoma City a decade of excellence and success, without ever tasting the ultimate glory. Even without a championship ring, you could mount the argument that Durant had provided 10 years worth of service and achievement to the Thunder and owed them nothing more. That part I agree on. But Durant didnt depart OKC to help rebuild his hometown Washington Wizards or to make the famed New York Knicks relevant again, he chose to join one of the premier teams to ever play the sport. His move to a powerhouse team was what angered some players, fans and experts - ESPNs Stephen A. Smith even going so far as to say the decision was the weakest move Ive ever seen from a superstar. That reaction is somewhat understandable, but Durant is a FREE agent. His contract has expired and he was free to sign with whoever he wanted to. And thats all he did.While I agree KD had the right to choose his next destination - following on from James 2010 move to join Dwywane Wade, Chris Bosh and the star-studded Miami Heat - it does set a dangerous precedent for the NBA. Will other megastar free agents decide to join forces and create super teams? Experts are concerned Durants former Thunder team-mate Russell Westbrook might join a side such as New York, teaming him with fellow All-Stars Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Carmelo Anthony, thus leaving many teams without any star players and any real hope of achieving success.While there have been several big-name free agency moves -Lance Franklin from the Hawks to Swans and James Frawley from Melbourne to Hawthorn - thankfully, we arent in that predicament in the AFL. And the fact there is compensation ensures lowly teams are compensated for their losses.Free agency is still finding its feet here and yes, there have been some concerns about its equality but unlike the American sports, free agency is not purely about going and getting as much money as possible. There are just as many examples of AFL free agents moving clubs for greater playing opportunities or to chase success as there have been those chasing extra bucks. Jared Rivers made a move in free agencys debut year, departing Melbourne where he was seemingly on the outer and joining Geelong where he played a few quality seasons and enjoyed some success.While the big-name free agent moves dominate the media landscape, the beauty of it is, it allows those struggling for opportunities at certain clubs to easily find new homes.The most recent free agency period saw a handful of guys find new clubs after needing a fresh start. Matt Suckling, Matthew Leuenberger, Scott Selwood, Andrew Moore, Matthew Wright, Dawson Simpson, Daniel Gorringe and Jarrad Grant all benefited from an easier path to a new club and most have seen enjoyed greater opportunities at their new homes.Would you say Eddie Betts free agent move to Adelaide at the end of 2013 has been a success? Sure, Carlton may wish they had him back but at the time they decided to save the cash and that has been to Adelaides benefit.Another great success story is Jeremy Laidler. He was originally traded from Geelong to Carlton, struggled for some time with the Blues then walked as a free agent to Sydney and is now staring at a finals series and a potential grand final with the Swans.Free agency in any form will always have its flaws, just as other aspects of our game like the draft, umpiring, fixtures and the price of a pie at the MCG but when weighing it all up, the good far outweighs the bad.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Just a few years ago, NBA commissioner Adam Silver had a hard time envisioning seeing this day come.He stood outside Sacramentos new, state-of-the-art downtown arena Thursday and welcomed Kings fans to the home opener for a franchise many believed was on its way out of town just over three years ago.I think its a borderline miracle from where we were in 2013 to be here in 2016, a year earlier than they originally pledged to have an arena done, Silver said before the Kings hosted San Antonio in the first regular-season game at the Golden 1 Center. To be done, to be here on opening night with the building completely finished with strong local ownership, its everything a league could hope for.The idea seemed far-fetched back in the spring of 2013 when the Maloof family was poised to sell the team to a group of Seattle investors seeking to move the franchise to the Pacific Northwest.But tech mogul Vivek Ranadive stepped up to buy the team for $534 million and keep it in Californias capital city with a new arena that Silver calls the new standard in the NBA.The 17,500-seat arena is the first professional sports venue powered completely by solar energy, will save about a million gallons of water a year compared to a typical venue of its size, was built with recycled material from the mall that stood at the site before construction began and will get 90 percent of its food and beverages from within 150 miles.It became the first indoor venue to receive LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of recognition for environmentally conscious buildings.There are other features such as the NBAs first 4K ultra HD video board, providing a picture four times clearer than HD, and an in-arena app that allows fans to control the temperature at their own seat. Adidas NMD Runner PK. .The arena is part of a $1 billion development project that includes 1.5 million square feet of mixed-use property that will have a hotel, restaurants, retail shops, offices and condos. About $500 million in outside investment is also expected in the area.These are true modern-day town halls, Silver said. You can see from the smiles on the fans faces as they were walking in, there was sort of a collective Wow!Among the most unique features are the airplane hangar doors that can be opened to turn the venue into an indoor-outdoor arena. The team tested them out for parts of three preseason games and saw no measurable differences in temperature, humidity or wind on the court and would like to be able to open the doors during games eventually.The league wants to do additional tests and consult with other teams before coming up with a protocol for when the doors can be open.Because its so new, we want to make sure we get it right, Silver said. It will probably be a few more weeks. Our hope is it will be done well before this season will be over.Silver also said there is an opportunity for an All-Star Game to come here, saying the team has presented a plan to have visitors stay on cruise ships in the Sacramento River delta to make up for a lack of hotel rooms.Sacramento has beaten the odds so many times before, Silver said. Initially at first blush, it was Wed love to come here but you dont have enough hotel rooms. But there is a true can-do attitude here in Sacramento.

ARDMORE, Pa. Langston Galloway Jersey . -- Phil Mickelson knew it was going to be close, so he made sure his group could finish the second round of the U.S. Open on Friday. The rule when a round is halted because of darkness is that players have the option to complete a hole. Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Keegan Bradley were on the 17th with the sun falling fast when Lefty spoke to Dustin Johnson in the group ahead of them. "We told DJ and his caddie, Keith Sbarbaro, we may hit one shot and they looked out for it," Mickelson said. Mickelson and Stricker were still on the 17th green when Bradley went over to the 18th green. The Johnson group, still in the fairway, moved to the side so Bradley could hit his tee shot. If the horn were to sound, Mickelsons group would be able to play the final hole because at least one player (Bradley) had teed off on the 18th. "They moved out of the way, and Keegan hit a tee shot, and they went back and finished the hole," Mickelson said. "It was nice of them so we could finish." It turned out they didnt need to rush. The horn didnt sound until everyone in Mickelsons group was on the 18th hole. Mickelson made a 20-foot birdie for a 72 to share the clubhouse lead. Stricker got up-and-down from 40 yards short of the green for a par. He shot 69 and was one shot behind. Bradley had no chance of making the cut. Thats why it didnt matter that he rushed over to play his tee shot on the 18th. It was critical for the top players to finish, and that included the group behind -- Justin Rose, Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker. Rose made par for a 69 and joined Stricker at one shot behind. Because the second round wont finish until Saturday morning, the last few groups of the third round likely wont tee off until mid-afternoon. The last thing anyone wanted to do -- particularly Mickelson, Stricker, Rose -- was to return to Merion at the crack of dawn to play one hole, and then come back some eight hours later. "We had to wait about two or three minutes on the tee," Rose said. "And I was getting nervous. Kuch ... suddenly grabbed the club and he was ready. That was definitely taking one for the team." ------ Graeme McDowell has already moved on to other majors. He may as well. McDowells is out of the hunt for a second career U.S. Open championship. McDowell, the 2010 champ, was 7 over after a 77 on Friday in the second round at Merion Golf Club. "Im temporarily dejected," he said. "This game is not about your bad weeks. Of course, its about the major championships, and youre trying to prepare yourself as well as you can coming into weeks like this. "Ill shake it off and Ill get ready for The Open Championship in a few weeks time. Thats my next target. The Irish Open and the French Open between then. Ill be competitively sharp going into Muirfield and Ill continue to draw on this season." McDowell had double bogeys on the 10th, 11th, 17th and 18th holes. He posted just three birdies in the second round. "Its not the way I wanted to play the last couple of days," he said. "But this place is very hard." ------ PANS MOVE: The surprise of Fridays play at the U.S. Open were a pair of amateurs -- Michael Kim of Cal and Cheng-Tsung Pan of Taiwan. They were 2 under for their round and among those who didnt finish. Pan must finish his round Saturday morning. He had two birdies and no bogeys to zip into a tie for third place at even par. Kim is 1-over so far and tied for eighth. Pan, a 21-year-old from Taiwan, is a junior at the University of Washington. He missed the cut in his other Open appearance in 2011, saying he was too excited and had too many distractions to play his best game. This time, Pan said he embraced the pressure that comes along with a major. "I feel I belong to that kind of place," he said. "Im not saying Im good enough, but I love this kind of feeling and the competition is great. I just want to be here always." -------- DONALDS DAY: Luke Donald holed out a chip for birdie on the short par-3 13th to reach 4 under and top the leaderboard in the U.S. Open. Not for long. He bogeyed Nos. 4-7 to totally spoil his round Friday. Donald was at 4 under Thursday before play was suspended, and finished with a 2-under 68 on Friday. He added a 72 in the second round to leave him even par for the tournament. The English star had a run of five bogeys in six holes on his back nine in the second round. "The greens have been tricky to read all week," he said. "They seem to be breaking a little bit more than Im seeing, hence a couple of lip outs. But you try not to panic in U.S. Opens." Donald, playing in his 10th U.S., has never won a major. The former world No. 1 played a pair of practice rounds last week at Merion to get used to the course. He even posed for a photo with David Graham, winner of the 1981 U.S. Open at Merion. "I asked him, Whats the secret?" Donald said. "And he said, Keep it in the short stuff. Obviously, I think most of us know that and its all about doing it." The 35-year-old Donald failed to make the cut last year in the U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco because of putting failures. He has never finished better than 12th in an Open (2006) and missed the cut three times since his 2002 debut. He was 45th in 2011 and 47th in 2010. Donald and Lee Westwood are the only players to be No. 1 without having won a major. Hes glad to at least be in the hunt this year. "I havent played very well, but when I saw this place last week, I thought it was a good fit for my game," he said. "Its nice to come here and feel like Im swinging pretty well and Ive got a chance. So, hopefully, I can throw a good one in tomorrow and really be in the mix come Sunday." ---------- DOUBLE DIP: Carl Pettersson saw double on No. 5. Pettersson had to check his backswing after an errant shot from No. 2 rolled his way and smacked his ball off its spot. Pettersson stopped his swing and backed off the ball, chuckling at the truly bizarre shot. The wayward ball came from Brandon Crick. He had to hit from where the ball landed. Pettersson placed the ball at its original spot. He probably wished his ball was whacked into the cup -- he had a bogey on the par-5 hole. "Luckily, I wasnt in my downswing, because if I would have missed the ball, it would have been, I dont know what the ruling would have been on that," he said. "But it might not have been good. I regripped and hit a decent shot after that." ---------- LAWRIE Honour: Paul Lawrie fought back with a 71 and feared he would miss the cut. The day wasnt a total loss. Hours later, the former British Open champion was among those selected for the Order of the British Empire in the Queens Birthday Honors. More that his performance on the course, the Scot was recognized for his foundation that helps pay for kids to get into sport. It started with golf and now includes soccer, rugby and some tennis. "I wanted to do it before I won the Open, but I didnt think I was a big enough name and didnt think sponsors would be interested or the kids would want to participate in the events," Lawrie said. "All of a sudden, I win the Open. Its getting pretty big and growing every year, but I have to say a lot of people do a lot of good work." Lawrie holds the major championship record for the largest comeback in the final round, making up 10 shots in the final round at Carnoustie in 1999, and beating Jean Van de Velde and Justin Leonard in a playoff. "Its a huge honour," Lawrie said. ---------- LOCAL FAVORITE: Jim Furyk had the home crowd on his side. He just failed to deliver a performance worth cheering for Friday. Furyk, born in the nearby Philly suburb of West Chester and raised in Lancaster, shot a 9-over 79. Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champion, wont be adding a second one to the collection. He hadnt played Merion Golf Club since the 1989 U.S. Amateur. "It showed," he said. "I didnt do a great job with my prep. I felt like I was ready coming here but I obviously played very poorly. It was probably my last putting performance in the last three or four years." For years, Furyk hosted the one-day Exelon Invitational at various stops throughout the state. His event was the only professional golf even that the Philadelphia area had on a yearly basis. He hasnt held the informal exhibition since 2009 and doesnt expect it to return. And he doesnt know when hell play again in the area. "I never really played well at the tournaments here," he said. "Its a bummer. I crossed the state at Oakmont for a couple of championships. At 43, theres not going to be another tournament here at Merion." ---------- DIVOTS: Stuck in the mud: Tiger Woods ski-champion girlfriend Lindsey Vonn had to trek through the mud at Merion like any other fan. "Sums up my day on the golf course... . muddy . usopen2013," she wrote on Twitter. The tweet went along with a photo of her from the knees down standing ankle-deep in the soupy muck. She later posted a Vine video of various muddy shoes and boots around the course. "Muddy shoes... Best and worst so far. . whatweretheythinking." Patrick Ewing Jersey .

Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. The closest Leicester got to a European trip in recent years was crossing the Welsh border to play Swansea in the Premier League.Now, as the unlikely English champions, theyll be visiting Belgium, Portugal and Denmark -- and if all goes well, even more countries -- for matches in their first-ever campaign in the Champions League.Leicester is one of two newcomers in Europes elite club competition this season, along with Rostov following its second-place finish in the Russian league.Both teams were fighting relegation in their respective domestic leagues just two seasons ago, yet now they are mixing it with the cream of the continent.---LEICESTERIn its 132-year history, Leicester has only had four seasons of European competition -- the last coming in 2000 in the now-defunct UEFA Cup after winning the English League Cup. That was Leicesters last piece of major silverware before shocking the sporting world by winning the Premier League last season.The intervening 16-year period was a bumpy ride for the central English club, which bobbed up and down between Englands top two divisions -- and even spent a season in the third tier in 2008-09 -- and also drifted close to financial ruin before being taken over by a Thai consortium in 2010.The team, known as the Foxes, returned to the Premier League in 2014 and two years later they are the champions, completing the ultimate fairytale journey.Theres been something of a championship-winning hangover at Leicester, though, and the Champions League campaign, which starts at Club Brugge on Wednesday, will offer some respite after a sobering start to the Premier League title defense.Having lost just three league games last season, Claudio Ranieris team has lost two of its opening four matches this season and the manner of the defeats will be a concern.An opening-day 2-1 loss at promoted Hull and Saturdays 4-1 loss at Liverpool highlighted how much the team is missing NGolo Kante, the France midfielder sold to Chelsea in the offseason. Often it felt like Kante covered the ground of two players last season, offering excellent protection to a defense containing journeymen and even cast-offs.With Kante gone, Leicesters solidity has disappeared and the side looks open. Liverpool could easily have scored more than four goals at Anfield.We have to clear our minds, Ranieri said, and understand that in football we have to be strong, determined, aggressive and reactive.Its not all doom and gloom for Leicester, however.The club ended up being one of English footballs biggest spenders in the summer transfer window, breaking its transfer record twice to sign strikers Ahmed Musa, then Islam Slimani. Derrick Rose Jersey. The squad is now much deeper and stronger, while Ranieri managed to limit the major outgoings to just Kante, meaning key players Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are still on board.In a sense, the pressure is off Leicester this season and it should just enjoy the Champions League campaign, especially considering its benign draw that will see the team also play FC Copenhagen and FC Porto. A couple of wins at its King Power stadium fortress and a place in the knockout stage could beckon.Once again, I say we are underdogs, said Ranieri, who is embarking on a sixth Champions League campaign with a sixth different club.And thats just how they like it in Leicester.---ROSTOVRostov almost did a Leicester last season in Russia, falling just short in its title challenge a year after narrowly escaping relegation.Rostov finished second, two points behind CSKA Moscow, to reach the third qualifying round of the Champions League and then beat famous European clubs Anderlecht and Ajax to make the group stage.The unheralded provincial side is breaking new ground, with its only previous experience of European competition being a brief one -- a loss in the Europa League playoffs in 2014. On that occasion, Rostov was excluded, then reinstated, from competition following a legal battle over financial issues, one of many episodes in a turbulent last few years.It was close to financial abyss in 2015 as the countrys recession hit Rostovs owners, the regional government.One coach, Igor Gamula, was suspended after saying the club had enough dark-skinned players and would not sign another. Then his successor, Kurban Berdyev, led Rostov on its unlikely title challenge only to quit for a better-paid job at Spartak Moscow.Spartak promptly changed its mind on hiring Berdyev and he is back at Rostov, listed as a vice-president/coach. One of his former assistants is the head coach, on paper at least, but Berdyev is likely to call the shots when it comes to Champions League tactics. He has experience of upsetting European giants, having beaten Barcelona away while Rubin Kazan coach.Meanwhile, a section of Rostovs Olimp 2 Stadium will be closed for its first home game in the Champions League because of racist behavior by fans during the playoff win over Ajax.The draw hasnt been kind to Rostov, which will face Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and PSV Eindhoven in Group D.

Former Team Imagine coach Rohit CurryshotGG Nathani settled a lawsuit for an undisclosed amount against Gerard Kelly, formerly of Maelstrom Gaming, Team Imagines parent organization, for compensation during Nathanis time as coach, according to documents filed Oct. Davis Webb Giants Jersey . 16?in New York Supreme Court. The suit names Maelstrom Gaming and its other co-owner, former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli, for an alleged $30,000 owed in payment, which is still pending.We have resolved all outstanding issues with Mr. Kelly, Nathanis lawyer, Roger R. Quiles, said to ESPN. Now we turn our attention to the remaining defendants in the case, Mr. Shkreli and Maelstrom Gaming.Nathanis complaints against Shkreli, Kelly and their organization were made public in February, as reported by the Daily Dot.Shkreli, known best for his time as Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO, which increased a toxoplasmosis medication used by AIDS patients by more than 5,000 percent once it acquired the rights to the drug, first made his esports investments in 2015. He began by founding a semi-professional League of Legends team in May 2015, later named Odyssey Gaming, which Nathani coached.In August 2015, Odyssey merged with Maelstrom and Imagine, adding Shkreli as its chairman and a co-owner. Nathani, as well as several other members, moved to the Team Imagine squad, which was competing in the North American League of Legends Challenger Series at the time.Simultaneously, Shkreli privately funded European Challenger Series team Ex Nihilo. Between his debt to Nathani and other debts with Ex Nihilo, Shkreli allegedly owes approximately $75,000 to various esports players and staff across both teams. Nathani, for his part, is the only member to take legal action against Shkreli. Davis Webb Womens Jersey .com) - Following a late-game loss to the reigning NBA champs, the Toronto Raptors will look to sustain their recent high-level play as they travel to Indiana to take on the Pacers. Dalvin Tomlinson Womens Jersey . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. http://www.shopnygiants.us/evan-engram-jersey/ . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury.Sky Sports Ian Holloway predicts the outcomes of the big games in the Football League, including Cardiff v Brighton, Brentford v Derby and Preston v Sheffield Wednesday. Cardiff v Brighton - Sky Sports 1, Saturday 12.30pm Im there for this one and I think it will be a draw because these are two good squads going quite well.Cardiff are there or thereabouts, still with a chance of getting in the top six, but they have to start winning more games after drawing with MK Dons and Charlton. Brighton will be in the top six at the end of the season and wont blow up. In Chris Hughton they have a manager who has won the division before so they have the experience. The teams with the advantage are the ones who have done it before.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 9/2)Fulham v Charlton, Saturday 3pmFulham looked like world beaters against QPR then lost 3-0 to Blackburn in midweek. I cant get my head round that, the talent they have and how well they played on Saturday, then two days later they get absolutely whooped.Its got to be the players, they played so well at the weekend but they have to get some consistency. They cant string performances together. Its really weird and they need to have a good look themselves and say, We should be better than this with the talent we have. Fulham were beaten 3-0 by Blackburn on Tuesday evening Maybe they need a good start to a game and if they get that they keep their confidence, if they lose it then the game goes. But with the likes of Jamie OHara and Scott Parker you would think the group could be more consistent. They are good going forward, very exciting, but maybe they leave themselves a bit open. Its a puzzle for me.What on earth is happening with Charlton as well? They are still in the relegation zone and they need to start winning. They will be better under Jose Riga but the unrest with the crowd wanting the owner out is not good. I cant even give them a goal this weekend!OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Huddersfield v Wolves - Saturday, 3pmHuddersfield got a fantastic result last week against Nottingham Forest, stopping their unbeaten run with a 2-0 win away from home.Wolves are struggling a bit and need a win. I feel for Kenny Jackett because he needed the owner to stick around and stay motivated, but now they need a new buyer as quick as they can if Kenny is going to have a chance to take that massive club higher up the table.Its a tough game to call and they might cancel each other out and it will be be a war of attrition.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)MK Dons v Bristol City - Saturday, 3pmI wouldnt mind going to this one, it could be a belter. Bristol got a fantastic result last weekend against Ipswich and then MK Dons won at Derby - thats the joy of the Championship.But sometimes you get a good result away and then you get home and disappoint your fans because they become a bit more expectant.  MK Dons won at Derby last time out This is a vital game for both sides and I dont think a point is great for either of them. You want to keep cracking on; they could really make a move up the table if they win. I am sure the teams below will want a draw but Im going for an away win.The good news for MK Dons is that if my prediction is as badly wrong as last weekend they will probably win!OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 17/2)Preston v Sheffield Wednesday - Saturday, 3pmPreston are having a fantastic season with 42 points and Sheffield Wednesday have been one of the surprises of the season - I cant separate them.I know Blackpool fans wont like it but I quite like Preston, particularly with Simon Grayson in charge and my old mate Steve Thompson as assistant. Ian Holloway is a big fan of Prestons Paul Gallagher I have always liked Paul Gallagher, I tried to sign him three times but never got him. I have always admired his play, he can cut in from wide, get a goal, he gets a run of form where he sets things up and he has a mean free-kick in his locker. He scored last week and is probably confident.Sheffield Wednesday have some beautiful players - Fernando Forestieri, Ross Wallace, Barry Bannan - and they have all sorts of stuff going on. I think they will keep going and make the play-offs.OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds 14/1)Bolton v QPR, Saturday 3pmI feel for Bolton and Neil Lennon. Dalvin Tomlinson Youth Jersey. Hes a born winner and hes had to put up with all this. I think he has handled himself with absolute dignity and they are improving.I dont know what Im going to get with QPR. I was really looking forward to last weekend but their back four capitulated against Fulham and they lost 3-1. I dont know what Im going to get with QPR. I was really looking forward to last weekend but their back four capitulated against Fulham. Ian Holloway I dont see either side keeping a clean sheet. It will be easier for QPR on the road rather than in front of the home crowd - they were very quiet the other day, you could have heard a pin drop. The Fulham supporters were singing, Is it a library?, but theyre not exactly noisy are they? They had to get handed out those clappers to get going, so thats a bit rich coming from them!OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 9/2)Brentford v Derby, Saturday 3pmWhere do you start with Derby? My advice to the chairman is: dont go in the dressing room and have a go at the players. They havent won since that. It was a draw at home to Reading, is that such a bad result?Brentford dont look the same this season. They have lost their midfield security after selling Toumani Diagouraga. This time last year they had Jonathan Douglas and Diagouraga and now they have Josh McEachran from Chelsea and he doesnt provide the same protection. They have started to leak goals, which is not good. Darren Wassall has taken charge at Derby after Paul Clements sacking Surely Derby have to pick up now? Are they going to capitulate? They have to find the spirit. I am sick of players blaming managers - they have to find the spirit within the group and use decisions and goals that go against you to make you stronger. I dont see them doing that, so the jury is out on them.They have to start winning now but its a very tough fixture for them. I just cant see Derby getting anything.OLLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 9/1)Burnley v Rotherham, Saturday 3pmEven with Neil Warnock in charge I cant see Rotherham halting Burnleys charge towards promotion. He will have them well organised but its a tough game.Lloyd Dyer is a fantastic signing for Burnley. He might even guarantee them promotion. He is so enthusiastic, so quick and works so hard. I have always liked him and hes a typical Burnley player who will work his socks off, do what the team needs and never give up. Thats what I like about Burnley, they never give up. Former Leicester winger Lloyd Dyer has joined Burnley If Burnley were a boxer and you hit them youd think youd caught them with your best shot and theyd just shake it off and keep going. They have a tough chin, whereas Derbys chin at the minute looks like it is made out of glass.Neil Warnock will make a difference at Rotherham even though I didnt agree with getting rid of Neil Redfearn - what chance did he have of turning things around in such a short amount of time?Warnock has the experience, is he retired or not though? Hes having more comebacks than Muhammad Ali!OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Walsall v Wigan - Saturday, 3pmWalsall third, Wigan fourth, two points behind. It doesnt get much tighter. Everybody is waiting for Burton to blow up but I cant see it and Gillingham keep going as well.Its a big game for Sean ODriscoll and I am not sure they will be separated. Walsall play some lovely stuff and will try to win on their own patch but Im going for a draw with Tom Bradshaw to score the first goal.Hes one of my favourite lower league players, a natural-born goalscorer and I am sure he wont be there for much longer.OLLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Southend v Burton - Monday, 7.45pmBurton have an amazing group of players and amazing organisation from the chairman, who keeps getting good managers and now one has come back. All I can do is praise the chairman, he doesnt interfere or go into the dressing room, he must support his manager because they keep having success, so well done to him. They have lost Abdenasser El Khayati but they keep going so well done to the players and Cloughy as well. Burton won at Chesterfield in their last match Phil Brown is going to have a problem here. Southend are having a great season after coming up through the play-offs - that was one of my favourite things, watching him and Gareth Ainsworth stand next to each other for the penalties, that was class from both of them.They are just outside the play-offs in League One but Burton have something special going on.

The anticipated showdown between Huntsville and Downbytheseaside emerged in the stretch of the $600,000 Breeders Crown 2-Year-Old Colt Pace, and Huntsville proved better, putting away Downbytheseasides bid and kicking away to win in 1:49 1/5, a new track record and just a fifth of a second off the world record that he co-holds. Mike Schmidt Jersey .Boogie Shuffle (Scott Zeron) got to the lead early and cut the opening quarter in 26-3/5, but Downbytheseaside (David Miller) and Huntsville (Tim Tetrick) had both overhauled him on the way to the 54-1/5 half. Huntsville went on to reach three-quarters in 1:22, turning away a first-over attempt by Filibuster Hanover (Brett Miller) and setting the stage for the stretch clash.Downbytheseaside angled out before the eighth pole and looked to have pace, but Tetrick called on Huntsville for his best, and the colt responded, fending off Downbytheseaside and then pulling clear to win by about two lengths. Miso Fast (Matt Kakaley) was up for third, followed by Normandy Beach (Corey Callahan) and Boogie Shuffle.Around the last turn I said well well separate the men from the boys, and he was the man, said winning trainer, co-owner, and breeder Ray Schnittker. Thats why we race, to see whos going to win.Huntsville, a colt by Somebeachsomewhere, is owned by Schnittker, Charles Iannazzo, Ted Gewertz, and Steven Arnold. Schnittker and Iannazzo also bred Huntsville, who now has seven wins from ten starts and earnings of $603,234. Hes the fourth foal out of the Western Hanover mare Wild West Show, making him a full brother to Stevensville ($429,989) and Cowboy Terrier ($336,365). The 4-5 choice, Huntsville paid $3.60 to win.Schnittker indicated that Huntsville will be heading to Canada to race in the Governors Cup at Woodbine, and that will be his final engagement of the season.He showed how good he is, added Tetrick in speaking with Ken Weingartner from Harness Racing Communications. He made a really bold move down the backside. I didnt know if Dave was going to let me go, or how far he was going to string me out, but he showed how tough he is. At the top of the lane he fought hard and opened up down by the wire. I was really impressed with his effort.Hes done nothing wrong. The couple times hes gotten beat, he was second. Hes never gone a bad race yet. Hes really matured into a good horse. I really thought he had enough speed the first time I sat behind him. But he had a few manner issues and hes really grown up. Rays done a great job with him. Hes really come a long way. Carlos Ruiz Jersey .

LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Its been 25 years, almost to the day, since Penrith last beat Canberra in a rugby league finals match.But, according to coach Anthony Griffin, thats ancient history.Most of these blokes werent even born then, he smiled.The two sides go head-to-head on Saturday in the NRLs second semi-final at GIO Stadium, with the winner to play Melbourne next week for a spot in the grand final.The Raiders and Panthers met in back-to-back deciders in 1990 and 1991 - with the Green Machine claiming honours first up and the men in black getting their revenge a year later.But since then, Penrith have lost all three playoffs against Canberra - two of them in the nations capital.Its club history but thats never been a focus of ours, added Griffin.Our main focus has just been trying to build the team weve got at the moment and play for ourselves, but also our members and our fans.Its a massive year for our club being our 50th year and the players have got a real desire to recognise that with our performances so that the whole of our distrrict - members, fans, people at Penrith - can be proud of their football team. Juan Samuel Jersey. Raiders coach Ricky Stuart played in that 91 grand final and hopes history doesnt repeat itself.I dont take too much out of it, but Id like to be able to say theres a different result, he said.Stuart has been a stickler for acknowledging the clubs past successes, inviting a swag of ex-players to games throughout the season.It was no different this week, with former utility Rowan Brennan speaking to the team in the sheds before training on Wednesday night.He was Raider No.26 and hes a great, passionate member of our club, Stuart said.Its nice to see the faces of our ex-players hanging around and still showing great interest in the club.Canberra have won just four of 15 finals matches played since 1998, and only two of its past 12.They are the only team to not reach a preliminary final in the NRL era. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

JaCorey Williams had 17 points and a career-high 14 rebounds for his third straight double-double, and Reggie Upshaw had 15 points.The Blue Raiders also struggled from the line in the second half, going 6 of 13 while they were 15 of 28 from the field, 4 of 6 from distance.There were 12 lead changes and five ties, the last one at 61 on a layup by Williams with 6:33 to go. Drew Hutchison Blue Jays Jersey .

Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was two tenths of a second off Vettel. "The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. There are six 3-0 teams in the SEC: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas A&M.On Saturday four of those teams play one another as Florida goes to Tennessee and Arkansas faces Texas A&M in Arlington, Texas.Things are getting serious in SEC football as we close out the month of September.Here are the best SEC storylines for Saturday, Sept. 24: It feels like old times in Tennessee. As mentioned above, both Tennessee (3-0, 0-0 SEC) and Florida (3-0, 1-0) are undefeated. Both are nationally ranked (Tennessee is No. 14, Florida is No. 19). Saturdays game will be nationally televised (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS) with Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson making the call. There is a whole lot on the line as Tennessee tries to snap an 11-game losing streak to the Gators.In short, it feels like old times on Rocky Top.If there is pressure, it falls a little heavier on Tennessee, whose fans have been talking about this game for a year. This is the fourth year for coach Butch Jones, who needs a breakthrough win. Tennessees last two losses to Florida have each been by a single point (28-27 in 2015, 10-9 in 2014).Jones has not delivered any pep talks this week. It just isnt necessary.Our players understand the magnitude of the game, said Jones.Florida will be without Luke Del Rio, its starting quarterback, who was injured in last weeks game with North Texas. He will be replaced by Purdue transfer Austin Appleby. No. 17 Arkansas (3-0, 0-0) and No. 10 Texas A&M (3-0, 1-0) will meet again at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This time the winner emerges as a dark horse contender in the SEC West.Both have impressive nonconference wins on their resumes. On Sept. 10 Arkansas rallied late to win at No. 15 TCU 41-38 in double overtime. The Aggies were taken to overtime in their opener with UCLA and prevailed 31-24.Both teams have new quarterbacks as Austin Allen has taken over for his brother, Brandon, at Arkansas. Allen threw two interceptions in his first start against Louisiana Tech, and has not thrown one since.Trevor Knight, a graduate transfer from Oklahoma, has been rock solid for the Aggies. Hes surrounded by what may be the best receiving corps in college football.This unit on film is as talented as Ive ever seen, said Arkansas coach Bret Bielema. It will be interesting to see how much either team has in the tank as No. 12 Georgia (3-0, 1-0) goes to No. 23 Ole Miss (1-2, 0-1). The game will be televised on ESPN with a kickoff at 11 a.m. local time.Thats right, 11 a.m.Its been a short week for Georgia. The Bulldogs won at Missouri 28-27 on a late touchdown pass by freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. They arrived back in Atthens about 3:30 a. Justin Smoak Blue Jays Jersey. . Sunday morning.Weve tried to be smart with how much we work them, especially in the heat, said coach Kirby Smart, whose team will fly to Oxford on Friday. Now we have to play a really good team that has played a tough schedule.Ole Miss looked like it was going to win its third straight game over Alabama when the Rebels took a 24-3 lead in the first half. But Alabama stormed back to win 48-43. Ole Miss also had a 22-point lead in its opener with Florida State, before falling 45-34.The key for Ole Miss is the play of quarterback Chad Kelly, who led the Rebels to over 500 yards of total offense against Alabama but had critical turnovers, especially in the second half.Kelly has thrown 10 touchdown passes in his first three games. No. 18 LSU (2-1, 1-0) seems to have found a little spark in its offense with quarterback Danny Etling who will get his second start when LSU goes to Auburn (1-2, 0-1).Etling, a former starting quarterback at Purdue, transferred to LSU and sat out the 2015 season. He completed 19 of 30 passes in last weeks 23-20 win against Mississippi State.But the reality is that Auburn will go into the game trying to force Etling to throw the ball. Because last year LSU running back Leonard Fournette was a force of nature, rushing for 228 yards and three touchdowns. He had four runs of 20 yards or more.It was a Heisman-like performance, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said of Fournette.So look for Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, who has a much improved defensive line, to do whatevers necessary to keep Fournette from controlling the game.Some other quick storylines:No. 1 Alabama (3-0, 1-0) hosts Kent State (1-2), the alma mater of Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban. Saban played on a MAC championship team (1972) at Kent State.South Carolina (2-1, 1-1) has a chance to start 3-1 under new coach Will Muschamp when the Gamecocks go to struggling Kentucky (1-2, 0-1).Missouri (1-2, 0-1) lost a heartbreaker to Georgia last week but quarterback Drew Lock leads the SEC in passing (1,106 yards, 9 touchdowns). The Tigers host Delaware State (0-2).Mississippi State (1-2, 1-1) goes to UMass hoping to get back on track after last weeks loss to LSU. This is the second SEC team UMass has faced after losing to Florida 24-7 in its opener.Vanderbilt (1-2, 0-1) really took it on the chin last week with a 38-7 loss at Georgia Tech. The Commodores try to bounce back against Western Kentucky, which has one of the nations best passing attacks (345.5 yards per game). Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
MOSCOW -- Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday that therapeutic use exemptions for banned substances give an unfair advantage, and suggested athletes who use them should be excluded from major competitions. Danny Duffy Jersey .TUEs allow athletes with medical conditions to take medications that would usually be banned. Their use has been under scrutiny since a hacking group known as Fancy Bears released confidential World Anti-Doping Agency documents listing medical information for many athletes.We need to understand what to do about (TUEs), otherwise we could soon face all records and victories going only to people who are ill with, lets say, chronic illnesses, Putin said, speaking at a sports forum in Russia.Putin suggested putting restrictions on athletes with TUEs.Maybe they can be put in a special category, or their achievements, points, seconds and honors can be considered in a special way, he said.Travis Tygart, the CEO of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, called Putins stance laughable, as the entire world has agreed to allow athletes to use medication for documented health needs like birth control, acne, life-saving surgery or established asthma. When approved as required, Tygart said, none of the medicines gives a performance-enhancing advantage.It either shows a clear misunderstanding of the rules or its another attempt to smear innocent athletes in response to the uncovering of Russias state-sponsored doping system that gave athletes a tremendous performance advantage and corrupted the Sochi Olympic Games, Tygart said.Two independent investigations detailed state-sponsored doping inside the Russian sports program, one of which found evidence that dirty Russian urine samples at the Sochi Games had been exchanged with clean ones.At a later meeting Tuesday with sports officials, Putin said all TUEs should be made public, a move that could face significant resistance from athletes, as well as possible legal obstacles related to the confidentiality of medical records.A person should decide, does he want people to know and does he want to do sport? Putin said.If athletes dont want their medical status made public, then they shouldnt be competing in high-level sport.Putin did not address WADAs allegation that the documents were released by hackers linked to Russia. International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said last month that he would ask the Russian authorities for help to put a stop to the hacking.The Fancy Bears group began posting medical records of Olympians online last month, with U.S. and British athletes making up a large proportion of those targeted. Only selected records have been released. It is not clear how many have been held back and for which reasons.Many of the athletes named in the files have said their medicines are necessary for their health, while others have pointed to TUEs issued as a result of a medical emergency such as a sudden collapse or anaphylactic shock. A substantial minority of the TUEs that were leaked date back several years and concern substances that were closely regulated at the time but are no longer considered potentially performance-enhancing if not abused.Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins use of a TUE for three injections of an anti-inflammatory drug has prompted scrutiny in Britain, though he denies gaining an advantage.Only one Russian, boxer Misha Aloyan, is among the dozens of athletes whose information has been leaked. However, many more Russian athletes are believed to have used TUEs.Putin said last month that we dont support what the hackers have been doing, but what they have done cant fail to attract public attention internationally.The leaks began a month after the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, from which many Russian athletes were banned following the investigations into state-sponsored doping. The entire weightlifting team was excluded, while only one track and field athlete was allowed to compete. Rod Carew Jersey .05 million next season unless Graham and the Saints subsequently agree on a long-term deal.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.http://www.baseballangelsofficial.com/albert-pujols-jersey-c-5/ .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche.Conor McGregors southpaw straight left won him the UFC championship inside 13 seconds and has become one of the most feared punches in the fight world. Along with his elusive footwork and eye-catching, hands-down style, the Irishmans punching ability has resulted in fight fans dreaming of a duel against boxing great Floyd Mayweather. Even if thats fantasy, McGregor has forged a reputation in the boxing world without ever stepping in a professional ring.But if hes such a good boxer, why did he depart the sport as a teenager? McGregor lost his most recent UFC fight to Nate Diaz so has he profited from a string of grappling-based opponents that lack skills with their hands? Conor McGregor lands a lead-hand uppercut Paschal Collins, Irelands seasoned boxing trainer, remembers an unknown MMA enthusiast who was at home in the boxing gym. Three or four years ago, I always reckoned that he could have gone all the way in boxing for the reason that his work ethic is unbelievable, Collins told Sky Sports. He trains - no, he practises - three times a day.You know when somebody walks into a room and they stand out? He had a confidence but behind the scenes he keeps his head down. I would watch him for an hour and hed practise the same move over and over. He stood out, absolutely.Hes brave, hes got a heart, and hes afraid of nobody. He sparred my nephew Stevie Jr, a cruiserweight, and showed no fear even when he was clipped. Conor was in my gym two weeks ago and I did southpaw pad work with him. He sparred my nephew Stevie Jr, a cruiserweight, and showed no fear even when he was clipped. Paschal Collins Before McGregors growth took him through Collins pro gym, he first learned to wrap his hands in the Crumlin Boxing Gym, an amateur establishment rife with young Irishmen learning about the discipline of the ring.He was like any other novice who we taught the basics to, Crumlin coach Phil Sutcliffe told Sky Sports. He could have been very good if he stayed with boxing.Some kids had more talent than Conor but didnt work as hard and eventually he found them out. He has skills from his time here - his hands up, his chin down, his elbows in. When he got good enough he was able to drop his hands because he could read the punches. Hes a very, very good reader. Conor McGregor hitting pads Hes ambidextrous, we teach that to all our kids, he can box orthodox or southpaw. His straight left changes fights. Its an opportunists punch - hes always had the ability to turn on his back leg to throw his back hand.McGregor took his boxing skills to the cage and exploded onto the UFC scene three years ago, immediately demonstrating an understanding of range that dumbfounded rivals.The same weapon that impressed his first coach Sutcliffe was still getting the job done. Three left-handed uppercuts accounted for Marcus Brimage in McGregors debut, then four more opponents crumpled beneath his left hand in 2014 and 2015. Dublin lighhtweight Jamie Kavanagh recently tweeted Conor McGregor about their younger days at the Crumlin amateur gym @JamieKavanagh90 A southpaws best weapon is the straight left, McGregors current coach John Kavanagh told Sky Sports last summer. Nolan Ryan Angels Jersey. For whatever reason, nobody hits harder than Conor.Contrary to popular belief, it tends to be tall, lanky, rangy fighters who punch the hardest. Conor has a generic X-factor when it comes to punching - even I dont know exactly what that is. Its hard to find a better system than western boxing to teach you how to hit as hard as possible.Super-middleweight world title challenger George Groves has been an impressed onlooker but when quizzed whether McGregor could cut it inside the boxing ring, he noted a crucial different in the Irishmans style. They attack from so far out. Do that in boxing and a skilful boxer would time you. George Groves They have to worry about takedowns so they have to throw punches from a much wider distance, Groves explained to Sky Sports. They can get away with things that we cant in boxing - for example they attack from so far out. Do that in boxing and a skilful boxer would time you.Were used to fighting much closer but if the UFC guys do that, theyre likely to be grabbed. They certainly have power, but in UFC they dont throw combinations. If youre a pure boxer you wont last long inside the cage - but vice versa.A submission defeat to Diaz in March, after tasting some of his own medicine standing toe-to-toe, led to criticism from WBA Super and WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. Boxing is the ultimate combat sport, Fury tweeted. Where two proper fighters stand up and fight. Conor McGregor (left) lands a southpaw jab McGregors recent low-profile appearances in California-based boxing gyms may be a strategic attempt to avenge the Diaz loss in an expected rematch, rather than preparation to fight a certain retired kingpin of the ring. His recent defeat was attributed to a lack of boxing finesse by his own striking coach Owen Roddy.He was winning the fight but punched himself out, Roddy told Sky Sports. He was trying to force the finish. He was landing his shots but, because Diaz was able to take them, Conor was throwing higher and higher combinations and got exhausted. The tables turned. Conor McGregors boxing let him down against Nate Diaz Conor was trying to knock him out with every punch and was putting too much behind every shot. If we get him to only put power behind certain shots, he should reserve his energy more. If we stick to popping shots and moving, I think hell put Diaz away.McGregor is the latest in a fabled line of punchers from Ireland and counts former world champions Wayne McCullough and Steve Collins as fans, while Lennox Lewis has tweeted support. He may wear smaller gloves than his boxing predecessors but he is packing a punch in a different way.

He was later diagnosed at Cookeville Regional Medical Center with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young athletes in the United States. Typically, only five percent of people survive after going into cardiac arrest.Roach had an implantable cardioverter defibrillator inserted on Friday.This was an undiagnosed heart condition that I have had most likely since I was born as it is caused by a genetic mutaation, Roach said. Jackie Robinson Jersey. It causes the heart walls to thicken and during exercise it can result in loss of blood flow and the rhythm to get off beat.I was on the field for the 13-play drive by Tennessee Tech and my heart was beating very fast, but it was not pumping blood. I went into cardiac arrest and for approximately 45 seconds had no pulse and was not breathing. The athletic trainers and doctors were in the right place at the right time to do what was needed.In a university release, Roach thanked the athletic training staffs from the two schools, the hospital doctors and staff, and the Tennessee Tech community.

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins open the second half of the Major League Baseball season with a three-game series beginning Friday night at Target Field. Cincinnati Reds Hoodie .Despite a 4-6 finish to the first half, the Indians will begin play 6 1/2 games clear of the Detroit Tigers for first place in the American League Central and seven games ahead of the Chicago White Sox and defending World Series champion Kansas City Royals.Its the first time since Terry Francona took over as manager of the Indians in 2013 that the club begins the second half atop the division standings.I dont want to get too carried away because were still playing, and nobody has a crystal ball, Francona told MLB.com. But weve played ourself into a position where every single game we play from now on is fun as (heck). And I dont doubt our guys will embrace it and see how good we can be. Thats the whole idea.The Indians have done their damage with a balanced attack, including All-Star pitchers Corey Kluber and Danny Salazar as well as sterling defense and a lineup capable of piling up runs in a hurry.Shortstop Francisco Lindor, another All-Star, has been a linchpin for the Tribe all season both in the field, where he is a strong Gold Glove contender, and at the top of lineup.Theyve done it with outfielder Michael Brantley on the shelf with an injured shoulder for all but 11 games this season. But he is on a rehab assignment and could be just a week or two from rejoining the club.Carlos Carrasco, who missed a sizable chunk of the first half with a hamstring injury, will start against Minnesota in Fridays opener.The right-hander has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last six starts but has a record of just 3-2 during that stretch. He allowed five runs against the New York Yankees in his final turn before the break, but four of the runs were unearned.Carrasco hasnt pitched against the Twins this season but struggled against them a year ago, going 0-2 with a 6.30 ERA in two starts against Minnesota in 2015.Minnesota is the only team in the AL Central not within striking distance of the Indians, sitting 20 games out of first place. But the Twins were the best team in the division in the final two weeks of the first half, led by a suddenly surging offense.Only the Chicago Cubs have equaled the Twins in the power department since June 26; both clubs have slugged 28 homers to lead the major leagues.Minnesotas 140 runs since June 18 are eight more than the next closest club and the most in baseball since that stretch.The Twins finished the first half by winning seven of their final nine games before the break, including five of seven over the AL-leading Texas Rangers during that stretch. Minnesota won three of four in Arlington in its final weekend before the break, outscoring the Rangers 38-18 in the series.Id think were on the high end here (offensively) the last two or three weeks, and its been balanced, Twins manager Paul Molitor told MLB.com. (Brian) Dozier has been hot, Kurt (Suzuki) has been on an incredible run.The young guys have injected some life and are taking advantage of some opportunities. (Max) Keplers development and RBI-to-games-played ratio is pretty impressive. You can just go on about the guys who are swinging the bat well.Minnesotas starting staff has also been better of late, led by right-hander Ervin Santana, who will get the ball against the Indians on Friday.Santana, who has been the subject of trade rumors recently, is 2-0 with a 1.63 ERA in his last four starts, capped by a brilliant two-hit shutout of the Oakland Athletics his last time out on July 6.Santana beat Cleveland in his only start against the Indians, limiting the Tribe to one run, five hits and a walk in six innings on May 14 at Progressive Field. Adam Duvall Jersey .

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.

It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. SAN DIEGO -- Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso couldnt have played his first career pick-6 any better.It was the highlight play of his career so far, and left the San Diego Chargers stunned, again.Alonso deked Philip Rivers into thinking he was going to cover a slot receiver, then broke off, jumped in front of Tyrell Williams for the interception and outraced everyone 60 yards to the end zone with 1:01 left to give the Dolphins a wild 31-24 victory Sunday.Maybe he was expecting me to go up the seam, Alonso said.He didnt. Once he had the ball, all Alonso needed to do was outrun Williams for the score.I mean, thats my first touchdown on defense ever, like high school, college, he said. I felt good.The Dolphins (5-4) intercepted Rivers four times in a 13-minute span in the fourth quarter and won their fourth straight game.With the score tied and the Chargers (4-6) on the Miami 42, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he was thinking through some timeout scenarios and looked up and saw his hands on the ball. Hes a very instinctive player and I know a couple of times he gambles and loses but a lot of times he gambles and hes right.Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill said he saw Alonso buzz out right before the snap and as soon as Phil started looking that way, I was happy he didnt see him.Rivers tied his career high with the four picks.Obviously it cant happen down in there, said Rivers, who helped the Chargers to a 10-0 lead midway through the second quarter. There were two of them when we were fixing to score, and then obviously the last one there with a chance to win the game with a field goal. The guy made a great play.Two plays into the ensuing drive, Rivers was intercepted again, by Tony Lippett, his second of the game.Too many missed opportunities with the chance to take the lead a few times. I didnt get it done, Rivers said.Rivers threw three touchdown passes to move past John Elway for eighth place on the career list with 301.Rivers 51-yard touchdown pass to Williams with 4:04 left gave the Chargers a 24-21 lead.Miami came right back to get a 27-yard field goal from Andrew Franks to tie it. That was set up by Tannehills 56-yard pass to DeVante Parker and a roughing-the-passer call that put the ball on the San Diego 10.Damien Williams scored on a 2-yard run and on an 18-yard pass from Tannehill for the Dolphins.Jay Ajayi ran for 79 yards,, ending his streak of three straight 100-yard games, but he had big runs to set up two touchdowns by Williams. Mikey Lopez Kansas City Jersey. OMENTUM SWINGThe Chargers blew a great opportunity to jump back into the lead after Jakeem Grant muffed a punt and Darrell Stuckey recovered it at the Miami 5. The Chargers had five chances from the 5 or closer -- thanks a holding call against Byron Maxwell -- and ended up with Rivers being intercepted by Lippett in the end zone after forcing a pass into double coverage.After Miami went three-and-out, Rivers gave it right back when he was intercepted by Byron Maxwell with 6:49 to go. The Dolphins failed to capitalize.Losing this way was like a shot under the chin, Stuckey said. Its a tough one. Weve got to find a way to take advantage of opportunities we get. Its the same old, same old story every time, for us, not taking advantage of opportunities.RECORD BOOKRivers threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Gates for a 10-0 lead. It was the 82nd time those two connected, extending their NFL record for a quarterback-tight end duo.Gates needs two TD catches to tie Tony Gonzalezs NFL record for touchdown grabs by a tight end (111).WEST COAST WEEKKenny Stills, who went to La Costa Canyon High in northern San Diego County, caught a 39-yard touchdown pass from Tannehill in the second quarter. Since the Dolphins are playing at the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday, theyre staying in Carlsbad this week. That gave Stills a chance to show some teammates his high school and to make a special visit. I got to see my dog for the first time in like a year and a half, said Stills, who stayed in Miami last offseason to work out.TOUGH WEEKIt was the second big loss for the Chargers in less than a week . On Tuesday, voters soundly rejected the teams request to raise hotel occupancy taxes to raise $1.15 billion for a $1.8 billion stadium and convention center annex downtown. Its unclear whether the Chargers will try another plan in San Diego or move to Los Angeles.INJURIESChargers CB Brandon Flowers left late in the third quarter and was being evaluated for a concussion. ...

After keeping the player who spent a few weeks at or near the top of our weekly top-10 fantasy prospect list in the minors, ?the Houston Astros have finally decided to promote Alex Bregman. Taco Charlton Youth Jersey . He dominated the Texas League (Double-A) before being promoted to Triple-A Fresno, where he continued to punish opposition. Combining both levels, he hit 306/.406/.580 with 44 extra-base hits, including 20 home runs. The second overall pick in 2015 starred for the United States in the Futures Game, finishing a homer short of the cycle. Ryan Switzer Youth Jersey . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3.

NFL Nation reporters detail the biggest storylines for every team coming out of Week 6 and what they mean going forward.NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC West AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC WestNFC EASTDallas Cowboys (5-1)The Cowboys hit the bye week with a five-game winning streak thanks to Sundays win over the Packers. There might be some storms ahead with the impending return of Tony Romo to full health and rookie Dak Prescott playing well, but the Cowboys have handled all of the adversities so far. Their style of play, led by the offensive line and running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has four straight games with at least 130 yards rushing, is a quarterbacks best friend. The quarterbacks second-best best friend, Dez Bryant, said he would be back Oct. 30 against the Eagles. -- Todd ArcherWeek 7: ByeNew York Giants (3-3)It wasnt especially pretty, but the Giants rode stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning to victory over the Ravens. Beckham had a career-best 222 yards receiving, including 211 yards and two touchdowns in the second half alone. It couldnt have come at a better time. The Giants (3-3) snapped a three-game skid heading into their matchup with the Rams in London. -- Jordan RaananWeek 7:?vs Los Angeles?in London, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPhiladelphia Eagles (3-2)Life without Lane Johnson got off to a troubling start. Rookie right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai struggled in his first start in the absence of Johnson, as Washington outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan went off for 2.0?sacks and four quarterback?hits. The Eagles need to stabilize the offensive front, and quick, as they host the Vikings on Sunday. Minnesota has 19 sacks in five games, which ranks second in the league. -- Tim McManusWeek 7:?vs. Minnesota, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETWashington Redskins (4-2)The Redskins didnt miss tight end Jordan Reed?on Sunday, gaining a season-best 493 yards and scoring 27 points against an excellent Eagles defense. Reed remains in the concussion protocol, so his status for this week remains uncertain. The Redskins, however,?saw they can survive the loss of their best target. They did it by running the ball well -- 230 yards -- as his replacement, Niles Paul, opened some crucial holes with his blocks. The Redskins went 0-2 without Reed last season. They saw Sunday that they could survive without him for at least one game. -- John KeimWeek 7:?at Detroit, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNFC NORTHChicago Bears (1-5)The Bears have a decision to make at quarterback. Brian Hoyer is not playing poorly, but Chicagos offense is averaging only 18.5 points under Hoyer. And on Sunday, the Bears scored only 16 points in an embarrassing home loss to Jacksonville. If Jay Cutler is medically cleared to return from a thumb injury, the Bears have to, at a minimum, think about getting Cutler ready to face Green Bay on Thursday night. Even if Hoyer starts the game, bringing Cutler off the bench in the event the offense struggles to score points should be an option for coach John Fox. -- Jeff DickersonWeek 7:?at Green Bay, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETDetroit Lions (3-3)The Lions had been waiting all season -- faithfully -- for Golden Tate to break out and become a big?part of the teams offense. They know when both he and Marvin Jones are playing at top form, their offense becomes incredibly difficult to stop. And while Jones didnt have a big game Sunday, Tate did with a career-best 165 receiving yards. That is good news for a Lions offense that needs to put up a ton of points to win as the?defense continues to sort itself out. -- Michael RothsteinWeek 7:?vs. Washington, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETGreen Bay Packers (3-2)Quarterback Aaron Rodgers probably said it best after the Packers loss to the Cowboys: The only silver lining is we play again in four days [and] hopefully wash this taste out of our mouth pretty quickly. Rodgers and the Packers offense need to get things figured out quickly after another shaky performance. They have the Bears coming to Lambeau Field for their only Thursday night game of the year. But based on how much they struggled, four days might not be enough to get things fixed. -- Rob DemovskyWeek 7:?vs. Chicago, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETMinnesota Vikings (5-0)After the Packers loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, the Vikings return from their bye week with a two-game lead in the NFC North. Theyll prepare for their trip to Philadelphia as the leagues only undefeated team, though coach Mike Zimmer has made a point of guarding against overconfidence as his team climbs to the top of the NFC standings. This team has kind of a bulls-eye sight with them, Zimmer said last week. They just want to focus on what we have to do to win this particular ball game. In my opinion, they have not thought about three games down the road or who we play. -- Ben GoesslingWeek 7:?at Philadelphia, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNFC SOUTHAtlanta Falcons (4-2)Even in the loss to the Seahawks, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan showed great resolve against one of the leagues best defenses. Although he was sacked four times and had an early fumble that led to a Seattle touchdown, Ryan still completed 27 of 42 passes for 335 yards with three touchdowns and a 102.8 passer rating. If Ryan can put up those numbers against the Seahawks, theres no telling what hell do in the coming weeks as the Falcons drive toward winning the NFC South and returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2012. -- Vaughn McClureWeek 7:?vs. San Diego, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETCarolina Panthers (1-5)The Panthers were hoping for quarterback?Cam Newton to have a triumphant return after missing a game because of a concussion. Instead it was another loss and more of the same costly mistakes and penalties as Carolina fell to 1-5 entering its bye week. Will there be changes during the bye? Kicker Graham Gano didnt exactly get an endorsement from coach Ron Rivera after missing an extra point attempt that would have tied the score at 31-31 in the fourth quarter. -- David NewtonWeek 7: ByeNew Orleans Saints (2-3)Saints coach Sean Payton is giving players the day off Monday after their thrilling victory over the Panthers. But safety Kenny Vaccaro refused it, saying he wanted the whole defense to meet with coaches and go through the tape. He knows the defense made too many mistakes while squandering a 21-0 lead that will cost us in the future. Hes right. Luckily the Saints have an offense and a quarterback in Drew Brees capable of posting 465 yards and four touchdowns. But this same high-wire act has led to back-to-back 7-9 seasons. They need a more consistent effort from the defense. It will help a ton when No. 1 cornerback Delvin Breaux comes back soon from a broken fibula. -- Mike TriplettWeek 7:?at Kansas City, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETTampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3)Jameis Winston threw seven touchdown passes and seven interceptions before the bye week last season. After the bye last season, he threw 15 touchdown passes?and eight interceptions?and went four straight weeks without a pick. Winston is looking for the same type of rebound after throwing nine TDs and eight INTs heading into the bye week this season. What was the key last year? Getting back to the basics, Winston said, emphasizing that ball security continues to be a priority. Getting a strong performance on the ground from Jacquizz Rodgers last week and the possibility of a return for running back Doug Martin should help. -- Jenna LaineWeek 7:?at San Francisco, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETNFC WESTArizona Cardinals (2-3)The Cardinals have a chance to even their record against the Jets -- a team that has been reeling more than they have?--?on Monday Night Football. The Cards have the statistical advantage, but the Jets defensive front, especially their front four, could wreak havoc against a patchwork offensive line thatll include two new starters at guard. New York also ranks second against the run, which will force the Cardinals and playcaller Bruce Arians to get creative. --?Josh WeinfussWeek 7:?vs. Seattle, Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ETLos Angeles Rams (3-3)The Rams locker room was noticeably distraught in the moments following the defeat to the Lions at Ford Field. They lost even though their offense, last in the NFL in yards per game through the first five weeks, played brilliantly. Quarterback?Case Keenum at one point threw 19 consecutive completions, setting a franchise record. But down three points with less than two minutes left, he tossed the clinching interception, giving his team back-to-back losses. The Rams notched a season-high 23 first downs and 387 total yards, but it didnt matter. Said defensive end William Hayes: I put the blame on the defense. Now the Rams have a trip to London on deck. -- Alden GonzalezWeek 7:?vs. New York Giants in London, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETSan Francisco 49ers (1-5)After Sundays blowout loss to Buffalo, 49ers coach Chip Kelly said Yeah, well see when asked whether Colin Kaepernick would continue to be his starting quarterback next week against Tampa Bay. But the response seemed like more of a situation in which?Kelly didnt want to discuss starting quarterbacks than one where he is going to legitimately consider turning away from Kaepernick after one start. Kaepernick had some ups and downs in Sundays game, performing well in the first half but struggling in the second to finish 13-of-29 for 187 yards with a touchdown for a passer rating of 77.8 to go with 66 rushing yards on eight carries. Theres a lot of work for Kaepernick and the offense to do moving forward, but theres little reason to think he wont get another shot next week. -- Nick WagonerWeek 7:?vs. Tampa Bay, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETSeattle Seahawks (4-1)The Seahawks were happy to escape with a victory over the Falcons, but much of the focus afterward was on the near-disastrous third quarter. The defense busted coverages on two Falcons touchdowns. After a 36-yard score by Julio Jones, Richard Sherman chucked his helmet on the sideline and had to be calmed down by coaches and teammates. Sherman was frustrated earlier this season after the team gave up a couple of scoring drives late in a win over the 49ers. Taco Charlton Cowboys Jersey. Coach Pete Carroll wants players to embrace their personalities, but he admitted that Shermans outburst had an impact in the second half and was something the Seahawks had to get through. The Seahawks face prolific offenses the next two weeks in games against the Cardinals and Saints. The performance of the defense and how players react if things dont go according to plan will be an ongoing storyline. -- Sheil KapadiaWeek 7:?at Arizona, Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ETAFC EASTBuffalo Bills (4-2)The Bills are humming along. Winners of their last four?games -- their longest winning streak since 2008 -- Buffalo has a trip to Miami upcoming before hosting the Patriots on Oct. 30. That game looms large because the Bills can both capture first place in the AFC East at the halfway mark of the season and sweep New England for the first time since 1999. -- Mike RodakWeek 7:?at Miami, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETMiami Dolphins (2-4)The Dolphins have a lot of questions on their roster. But a big answer emerged in Sundays win over the Steelers. Second-year running back Jay Ajayi produced the NFLs first 200-yard rushing game of the season. Most important, the Dolphins finally found their go-to tailback after spending a quarter of the season using a running-back-by-committee approach. -- James WalkerWeek 7:?vs. Buffalo, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNew England Patriots (5-1)On a day in which?Tom Bradys first home game?since returning from suspension was a big storyline -- with fans chanting Brady! Brady! Brady! at various points -- tight end?Rob Gronkowski announced that he was also back in a different way. Totaling a career-high 162 receiving yards and his first touchdown?of the season, Gronkowski said after the game that he now has two wheels under him, a reference to his hamstring returning to health. As Brady said, He makes any quarterback look good. -- Mike ReissWeek 7:?at Pittsburgh, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETNew York Jets (1-4)With middle linebacker David Harris (hamstring) listed as doubtful for the Monday night game against the Cardinals, the Jets probably will be without their defensive leader and signal-caller. They could use three players to fill Harris various roles -- Erin Henderson, Darron Lee and Bruce Carter. One of the challenges will be containing Arizona running back?David Johnson out of the backfield. The Jets will miss Harris cerebral skills. -- Rich CiminiWeek 7:?vs. Baltimore, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC NORTHBaltimore Ravens (3-3)The Ravens have a good shot at ending their three-game losing streak Sunday when they play at the one-win Jets. But, the problem is, Baltimore could be far from full strength again. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (concussion) and linebacker Terrell Suggs (arm) left Sundays game and didnt return. A source told ESPN that Suggs tore his left biceps, but the injury is not considered season-ending. This is compounded by the fact that five Pro Bowl players were sidelined in the Ravens last game. The season is suddenly unraveling for the short-handed Ravens. -- Jamison HensleyWeek 7:?at New York Jets, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCincinnati Bengals (2-4)Coach Marvin Lewis wouldnt comment on what the Bengals offensive line will look like going forward, after first-year starter Cedric Ogbuehi?was benched vs. the Patriots. Thats going to be the big question ahead. Quarterback?Andy Dalton has been sacked 19 times already this season, and he is well on his way to a career high. With center Russell Bodine also hurt, the Bengals need to figure out how to protect Dalton as they try to dig themselves out of a 2-4 hole. -- Katherine TerrellWeek 7:?vs. Cleveland, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCleveland Browns (0-6)The Browns have started 0-6 for the first time since the expansion season of 1999. While there is frustration and disappointment, there does not seem to be a sense of despair or hopelessness inside the team. Offensive tackle?Joe Thomas said he felt no splintering, and running back Duke Johnson said this of first-year coach Hue Jackson: When your head coach wont quit, the team cant quit. And thats what type of coach we have. -- Pat McManamonWeek 7:?at Cincinnati, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPittsburgh Steelers (4-2)The Steelers defense is a total enigma right now. It has?been impressive in four games and putrid in two. Giving up 223 rushing yards to the Dolphins, one of the leagues worst rushing offenses, is alarming. The New England game is the perfect chance to see what this defense can really do, especially if defensive lineman?Cam Heyward (hamstring) and linebacker?Ryan Shazier (knee) can get back, though thats hardly a guarantee. If the Steelers want to fulfill Super Bowl aspirations, they need to find ways to avoid the collapse. -- Jeremy FowlerWeek 7:?vs. New England, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETAFC SOUTHHouston Texans (4-2)Despite a shaky start, quarterback Brock Osweiler finally flashed the ability that coach Bill OBrien has praised through the first five weeks of the season. Osweiler led the Texans down the field twice late in the fourth quarter and again in overtime in the comeback win over the Colts, finishing 25-of-39 for 269 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. This was the game Osweiler needed to get on track, but the Texans need him to continue to improve, especially with a big Monday night game looming against Osweilers former team, the Broncos. Houston is in first place in the AFC South, but a win at Denver would send a message to the rest of the conference. -- ESPN.com staffWeek 7: at Denver, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETIndianapolis Colts (2-4)The Colts have to find a way to rebound from their worst loss under coach Chuck Pagano after they blew a 14-point lead with less than five minutes left in the fourth quarter against the Texans. The loss put Indianapolis in last place in the AFC South. The Colts will look back later in the season and regret what happened on Sunday. Now they have another division game at Tennessee next weekend. -- Mike WellsWeek 7: at Tennessee, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETJacksonville Jaguars (2-3)Rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey wasnt having success against Bears wide receiver?Alshon Jeffery in the first half Sunday, so he got more physical and shut down Jeffery in the second half. Ramsey held Jeffery to only one catch for 3 yards and is rapidly proving himself to be the frontrunner to be the leagues defensive rookie of the year. Ramsey still has work to do, but he?is on his way to becoming one of the leagues top?cornerbacks. -- Mike DiRoccoWeek 7:?vs. Oakland, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETTennessee Titans (3-3)When second-year quarterback?Marcus Mariota plays well, the Titans win. That has been the case this season, and they needed him the most against the Browns, who did good work limiting DeMarco Murray and the Tennessee ground game. Mariota ran for 41 yards on the first play from scrimmage and threw?three touchdown passes. Next up is Indianapolis. Before Sunday night, the Colts rated as the NFLs third-worst defense and were giving up plenty to teams running and passing. If the Titans can find the right formula for that one, they could break a nine-game losing streak against their biggest rival. -- Paul KuharskyWeek 7:?vs. Indianapolis, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC WESTDenver Broncos (4-2)Broncos coach Gary Kubiak?was not with the team last week as he recovered from a night in the hospital after the teams loss to the Falcons. He?did not make the trip to San Diego for Thursday nights game, and the Broncos now have a two-game losing streak. The two biggest items on the to-do list for Kubiak are a bogged-down run game that has slowed the entire offense, and the defenses inability to start games the way it finishes them. Five of the Broncos six opponents have scored on the first possession of the game -- the sixth scored on the second possession -- and the Broncos have already surrendered more first-drive points in six games (31) than they surrendered on first drives all of last season (24). -- Jeff LegwoldWeek 7:?vs. Houston, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETKansas City Chiefs (3-2)The Chiefs got their first extended look at the rushing combination of Spencer Ware and Jamaal Charles in the win over the Raiders, and they were pleased with the results. Normally, Charles will provide the big plays and Ware the tough yards, but the roles were often reversed in Oakland. Charles had some tough runs and Ware had the longest play of the game on a 45-yard run. Look for the Chiefs to continue a shared arrangement between the two in next weeks game against the Saints.-- Adam TeicherWeek 7:?vs. New Orleans, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETOakland Raiders (4-2)So this is what it looks like when the Raiders normally dependable and high-scoring offense fails to show up to bail out the teams normally undependable and porous defense -- a loss in the rain at home to the Chiefs. Reality check? The Raiders had a chance to really get a leg up on the rest of the AFC West with a victory but instead have a week to marinate in it before embarking on a week-long trip to Florida for games at the Jaguars and Buccaneers. We got outcoached, and outplayed, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said. Take your pick. The Jags and Bucs would like to take him up on his offer over the next two weeks. -- Paul GutierrezWeek 7:?at Jacksonville, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETSan Diego Chargers (2-4)After a 21-13 victory over the Broncos on Thursday, the Chargers are looking for their first winning streak this season. Theyll get the Falcons, who lost in Seattle in Week 7. Well kind of see what theyve done last year, McCoy said about the Falcons. Well look at the first couple games, and playing this weekend well see what theyre doing. So it will be good to have an extra couple days, giving the players a head start on what theyre doing, and get an extra day on the field really of repping some things. -- Eric D.

LOS ANGELES --?Todd Gurley said his Rams were running what looked like a middle school offense and questioned the effort of his teammates after Sundays 42-14 rout by the Atlanta Falcons, the Rams eighth defeat in nine games.Man, we gotta play, Gurley said. I dont care if were out of the playoffs or not. I dont care. Just come up, show up, play. Thats why we play this game. Show up, play.Gurley, held below 100 rushing yards for the 20th time in his past 21 games, was asked if he believes everybody on his team is showing up to play.I dont, the running back replied. I really dont. Were just going through the motions. It looks like everybodys just playing to get through.The Rams -- already last in the NFL in first downs, yards and points per game -- committed five turnovers in what ended up being their third consecutive lopsided defeat. Two of those turnovers led directly to touchdowns and were created by quarterback Jared Goff, 2016s No. 1 overall pick -- first on an interception and then on a sack-fumble.Two more came on fumbles by the two men replacing injured running back Benny Cunningham -- Mike Thomas on the opening kkickoff and Malcolm Brown on a rushing attempt.Thomas Partey Atletico Madrid Jersey. And another came on a pass that hit Kenny Britt in his chest and bounced into the hands of a Falcons defender in the red zone.We looked like a middle school offense out there, Gurley said after compiling 83 yards from scrimmage and punching in the Rams first touchdown at the start of the fourth quarter. I mean, Im going to be quiet. My mom said if you dont have anything good to say, dont even say it. Im just going to leave it as that.Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who tied an NFL record with his 165th career loss, is getting most of the blame, but Gurley said, Coaches dont have anything to do with it. This is about us. Were on the field.The Rams are 4-9, guaranteed their 10th consecutive losing season, and must play the Seattle Seahawks on the road on Thursday night.What can the Rams do to get back on track?I really dont know, Gurley said before repeating really eight times and then another dont know.We all got to figure that out, he said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Luca Marrone Juventus Jersey . -- Nick Saban doesnt typically gush about individual players. Likewise, he doesnt go through the usual song and dance of giving out game balls. Singling out anyone like that, he explained, would go against the objective of focusing on playing together and everyone doing his job.Besides, picking out a star on Alabamas roster is nearly impossible. On defense alone, its a constellation of future pros who comprise the nations No. 1 scoring defense, total defense, rushing defense and third-down defense. As a unit, it hasnt allowed a touchdown in more than a month, and quarterbacks have the lowest QBR against it in the country.But as a matter of human nature, someone has to be the best. And he just so happens to be a 6-foot-3, 294-pound senior defensive end with seven sacks, a team-high 13 quarterback hurries and, for an added bonus, a pair of touchdowns. Hes a finalist for the Nagurski, Bednarik and Hendricks awards, and if the Heisman Trophy wasnt slanted toward offensive skill players, hed be on everyones top list of nominees.Hes Jonathan Allen, and if you dont think hes Heisman-worthy, just ask his head coach.Thats right, the ultra-team-focused Saban has bent the rules to accommodate for Allen. Last month, after he sacked Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight in Superman-esque fashion and scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery, Saban openly vied for him to be considered for the Heisman, lamenting the fact that the award overlooks linemen. Saban called Allen a fabulous player and a great candidate.In a way, Allen is the perfect player to make his typically stoic head coach speak up. Over the course of the last four years, hes become the personification of Sabans so-called Process. He came in with all the hype of a big-time recruit and none of the self-awareness or ego. Rather, he contributed in a part-time role as a freshman and grew from there, spending time in the weight room and learning new positions.Allen could have turned pro after last season, but he stayed. He could have doubled his team-high 12 sacks easily, he thought. A financial-planning and consumer-affairs major, he estimated a $10 million difference between the second-to-third-round grade he received and the first-round spot he envisioned. It was a business decision, he said, returning to up his stock and finish his degree. Now its hard to find a flaw in his game, whether its playing inside and stuffing the run or moving outside to rush the passer.Jonathan Allen is a fantastic player for us, and even a better person and leader, Saban said. Sometimes a lot of players lose sight of how football is a developmental game, how they improve, how they can improve their value by continuing to grow and develop as players in college. Jonathan Allen is a great example of that.The son of a retired sergeant and the younger brother of an Army member stationed in Colorado, its no wonder Allen was drawn to the structure of Alabama. Discipline and attention to detail were ingrained in him from a young age, and in Saban he saw a continuation of that upbringing. While some young players buck against the strictness of the program, Allen said he loves it. After four years together, he has to stop and shake his head when he catches himself speaking like his head coach, parroting the tenets of the Process.Like Coach Saban says, If you want to have success, theres a formula, Allen said. There are very few places that are like that. If you want to be successful, this is exactly what you have to do to get there.But getting there wasnt easy. Allen arrived at Alabama a 250-pound athlete hoping to play outside linebacker before transforming into the defensive lineman he is today. And before that, he was a sophomore in a new high school, 170 pounds soaking wet, with no clue of how to get into a three-point stance.Allen was born in Anniston, Alabama, and lived in Seattle, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pittsburgh and Maryland before landing at Stone Bridge High in Virginia. There, under coach Mickey Thompson, Allen had dreams of scoring touchdowns on offense. Only he had bricks for hands. During one of his first practices, Thompson remembers Allen turning to catch the football and whiffing completely, letting the ball sail between his hands before drilling him in the face mask.You know, this might not be the position for him, Thompson thought at the time.He was good, but he wasnt great like he is now. He would have had to wait his turn for a while if he had played that position. So we started trying him in a three-point stance and trying to get him on the edge a little bit ... and it grew from there.Allen was undersized, but he more than made up for it with his speed. Coaches tried to teach him which gap was which, but it didnt work because even when he was out of position, hed spin out and make the tackle anyway. In his first couple of games, Thompson remembered Allen having seven or eight sacks. By the time his sophomore season ended, he had roughly 25.It became like folklore, Thompson said. What are we going to do with this guy? How are we going to block him? Everybody in their heads said, Were going to run away from him. But that was a mistake because he was going to run you down.You cant have somebody totally take over a game on defensive line. Thats unheard of. And that happened a lot.Before long, colleges began taking notice. Allen felt spurned by nearby Virginia Tech, which he said initially viewed him as undersized, but not everyone saw it that way. Then-Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn was a fixture at Stone Bridge, spending hours with Allen to develop a relationship. But then, Thompson said, Alabama rolled in, and it was pretty much over.Saban can be intimidating to some people, Thompson explained. Its no-nonsense. To some people who are more off-the-wall or fun-loving, its a little intimidating. For him, I think he likes it. Hes serious about his craft, and he wants someone who is serious about it.Just like his choice to return for his senior season, Allen looked at signing with Alabama as a business decision. He had dreams of playing in the NFL, and Saban had the right formula, he said.Allen may look the part of the prototypical Saban robot, with the precise blend of size, speed and discipline, but beneath that helmet lies a human being. When a reporter said after Alabamas 38-0 beatdown of Michigan State last season that teams simply arent supposed to win by such large margins, Allen snapped back coldly, Alabama does. Someone added music to the video clip, and it became a viral hit.It was a small but revealing moment. It was really the first glimpse of the confident side of his personality.But the hybrid defensive end/tackle is also a self-described geek who loves nothing more than to play video games like Battlefield and NBA 2K. He built his own computer over the summer, swapping out parts to make it run at higher speeds. He chose his major, he said, because he heard so many stories of athletes going broke.Thompson, who tries to keep in touch with Allen every few weeks, is in awe of his former player. He said that people dont understand what kind of person Allen is away from the field, calling him gentle and one of the highest-character people Ive ever coached.On the field is a different story, though. There, Thompson said, he sees a lunatic with a rage that doesnt fit.You have to be a tough guy, Allen said. You have to be a dog, as we say around here, to go through what we go through. You have to have that nasty, mean edge about you.When his father and brother came to Alabama last Saturday to celebrate Senior Day, Allen blocked out all emotion, refusing to think about it being the final home game of his career. Instead, he said he was focused and wanted to kill Auburn. He wound up with two tackles for loss and helped the defense go the entire month of November without allowing a touchdown.ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. currently ranks Allen as the fourth-best draft-eligible prospect. An SEC West assistant coach described him as a complete player who is disruptive and has the ability to create momentum plays. On a defense thats become known for nonoffensive touchdowns, its the nearly 300-pound lineman that ties for the team lead with two scores.I feel like were the best, Allen said, but we have to go out there and prove it every week. We have the mentality we have to go out there and suffocate and dominate the offense.Florida coach Jim McElwain joked that there have been only a couple of times where Ive become violently ill watching them on film this week.Last year, Allen had a sack during Alabamas 29-15 win over Florida in the SEC Championship Game. This time around, theres no telling what hell do.With so much left of the season, Allen said he cant let thoughts of his legacy creep into his mindset yet.Personally, we really dont focus on that, to be honest with you, he explained. I know it sounds a little boring. We just try to go with the mindset of control what we can control.Boring, huh?Sound familiar?If you listen closely, you can almost hear Saban whispering the words in his ear.As opposed to looking at what I do right, Allen said, I kind of focus at what I do wrong.Whatever his faults are is anyones guess.But one thing is certain: Hes learned well. Stefano Sturaro Juventus Jersey .

LOS ANGELES -- Even an early three-run deficit and a shaky rookie starter couldnt slow down the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are looking stronger with each win during two impressive streaks.Corey Seager tripled and scored the tiebreaking run on Justin Turners sacrifice fly in the seventh inning to lead the Dodgers to their fifth consecutive victory, 7-5 over the slumping Baltimore Orioles on Monday night.Chase Utley had three hits and drove in two runs for the Dodgers, who have won 10 straight at home after rallying to claim the opener in just Baltimores second regular-season trip to Dodger Stadium. The postgame holiday fireworks show heralded another confident win for the Dodgers, who have won 15 of their last 20.Were playing much better baseball, manager Dave Roberts said. Even when we were down, we felt like we were still in this game.Yasiel Puig and Yasmani Grandal hit back-to-back homers in the second inning for Los Angeles (48-37), which rose to a season-best 11 games over .500.Seager extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a fourth-inning RBI single. His streak is the longest in the NL this season and the third-longest by a rookie in the Dodgers tenure in Los Angeles.The precocious shortstop then hustled for a triple on his drive down the right field line off Odrisamer Despaigne (0-1) in the seventh.It was just good to see us respond, Roberts said. Every time they scored, we answered. Corey is taking the extra base and turning a double into a triple there.J.J. Hardy and Joey Rickard drove in two runs apiece for the AL East-leading Orioles, who have lost five straight.BIG SAVELos Angeles bullpen bailed out teenage rookie starter Julio Urias with 5 2/3 scoreless innings of two-hit ball. Joe Blanton (4-2) pitched the seventh, and Kenley Jansen finished for his 25th save in 28 chances.Urias yielded six hits and five runs while failing to get out of the fourth inning.Urias stayed up with Los Angeles longer than most expected. The return of Brandon McCarthy and Hyun-Jin Ryu from injuries likely means the prized Mexican prospect is headed back to the minors for moore seasoning. Leonardo Bonucci Jersey. Urias is positive about the move.I would obviously love to be here, love to spend the rest of my career here, Urias said through a translator. But Im going to work hard down there and try to come back. I was able to see what I can do (in the majors), and Im very thankful.STRONG STARTBaltimore jumped on Urias for three runs in the second inning, including Hardys two-run double. Rickard then delivered a two-run single in the fourth, briefly putting the Orioles up 5-2.Utley and Seager came through with consecutive RBI singles in the bottom half of the inning against Yovani Gallardo, who yielded six hits and four runs in a four-inning start.I was just falling behind guys, and its hard to pitch like that at this level, Gallardo said. It just cant happen, especially when the guys put some runs up on the board early. Youve got to put up zeros.Los Angeles tied it in the sixth on Utleys RBI single. The Dodgers added an insurance run in the eighth when pinch-hitter Chris Taylor sprinted home from first base on Howie Kendricks double.FREE BIRDBefore the game, a trained bald eagle from the Los Angeles Zoo took the Independence Day spirit literally, flying past its handler in the outfield grass, over the center field fence and out of the stadium. The eagle was located safe and sound.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: OF Pedro Alvarez went on the bereavement list, and OF Dariel Alvarez was called up from the minors along with LHP Jayson Aquino, who made his major league debut by getting two outs in the eighth.Dodgers: Ryu plans to start for Los Angeles on Thursday against San Diego, completing his arduous return from shoulder problems. He hasnt pitched since the 2014 playoffs, undergoing surgery and numerous setbacks.UP NEXTOrioles: Chris Tillman (10-2, 3.71 ERA) already has twice as many wins as any other Baltimore starter.Dodgers: Kenta Maeda (7-5, 2.82 ERA) has a 2.21 ERA in his last seven starts, allowing opponents to bat just .219. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
