TEMPE, Ariz. Air Max 270 React Rose . -- In the aftermath of a strange game loaded with what if scenarios, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was asked if there was anything he learned about his team.Oh yeah, he said after reviewing video of the game. I think were a very good football team. Im very confident of that. ... Mentally our football team is very, very resilient. Its a long journey to the end.And was Sunday nights 6-6 tie with the Seattle Seahawks one of the more bizarre games hes experienced?It was a different one for sure, Arians said at his Monday news conference. Ive only been doing it for about 40-some years, but thats in the top five.Chandler Catanzaros missed 24-yard field goal try in overtime was only the last of a series of missed opportunities.A blocked punt set up the only Seattle score of regulation. The Cardinals failed on a fourth-and-one try at the Seahawks 19-yard line, time ran out before the Cardinals could get off a field goal try in the final seconds of the first half, and David Johnson came within inches of scoring what would have been the game-winning touchdown in OT.Michael Floyd dropped a pass deep in Seattle territory.And thats not to mention Bobby Wagners amazing block of Catanzaros 39-yard field goal try.I dont know how many plays we had, Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said after the game. It felt like 100, but were a tired football team right now. ... Weve got to bounce back. Weve got a big game next week.Actually, Arizona ran 90 plays in the game, the second-most in franchise history. The Cardinals ran 94 plays against Washington in 1994.Johnson touched the ball on 41 of those plays, 33 as a ball carrier and eight as a receiver. The second-year running back had 171 yards from scrimmage -- 113 rushing, 58 receiving. He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 1,004.The Cardinals had the ball a whopping 46 minutes, 21 seconds, the second-most in NFL history. The New York Jets had the ball for 47:08 against Cleveland in 2010.Still, Arizona managed just two field goals.Arians praised the Cardinals defense.One of the best defensive performances Ive seen since Ive been here, he said.Until the overtime, the only time the Seahawks were in Arizona territory was after the blocked punt.The Cardinals havent allowed a touchdown in the last two games.Arizona sits at 3-3-1 heading to Carolina and a stadium filled with bad memories. The Cardinals lost playoff games their last two trips there, most recently a blowout defeat in last seasons NFC championship game.And this wasnt the only Sunday night missed field goal that has plagued the Cardinals.A bad snap helped lead to Catanzaros missed field goal that would have beaten New England in the season opener.Arians said he still fully supports Catanzaro.The kicker just needs to kick it through the two poles and wed be 5-2, he saidGame notes The Cardinals will be without wide receiver Jaron Brown for the rest of the season. He tore an ACL against the Seahawks and is out for the season. Browns absence will especially be missed on special teams. ... Arians is optimistic that wide receiver John Brown will be back after sitting out Sunday nights game due to what the team called sickle cell traits that caused leg pain. ...

OTTAWA -- Ever since a Nov. Yeezy 350 v2 Magasin . 8 loss in Nashville, the Ottawa Senators have left very little on the table.In the following four games, theyve grabbed seven of a possible eight points while improving their record to 10-5-1. Their season high undefeated in regulation time streak will be put on the line Thursday at Canadian Tire Centre when the Predators arrive for a rematch.We didnt have a good game in Nashville the last time we played them, so weve got to be prepared, and we all know it, captain Erik Karlsson said after scoring the winner in a 3-2 shootout against the Flyers Tuesday. Its coming along.The Predators (6-6-3) had a streak of their own stopped Tuesday night when they visited the Toronto Maple Leafs for the first of a three game road trip. The 6-2 setback halted their run of victories at three games and was the first time seven the Predators failed to grab a least a point.Nashville suffered a power shortage in Toronto after a 5-0 victory over Vancouver its previous game.I felt like we had some good offensive time but every time we make a mistake it kind of found its way in the back of the net, said winger James Neal, who has five goals and one assist in his last four games. We had a good home stretch and were playing good hockey. It was a tough one (against the Leafs) but well regroup.The Predators are hoping to welcome back No. 1 goalie Pekka Rinne, who missed the Toronto game with a lower-body injury. In Ottawa on Wednesday, Rinne said he was good to go but was still waiting for clearance.While the Senators have struggled mightily with a power play that ranks 30th in the league, their penalty killers are on a roll. Theyve survived 29 consecutive shorthanded situations, including four against the Flyers.Philadelphia leads the league in power-play goals.Its just time, its the same players getting use to each other, said coach Guy Boucher. Thats what weve got right now. The guys are working extremely hard. Theyre paying a price.The game will mark the return to the area of Predators defenseman P.K. Subban, who spent six seasons with the Montreal Canadiens before the offseason trade that sent him to the Predators for defenseman Shea Weber.A number of Canadiens fans are expected to make the two hour drive from Montreal to watch popular former Norris Trophy winner.For his part, Subban said hes still the same guy who loved living and playing in Montreal.I dont change who I am or where I go, he said. The difference in Nashville is in the grocery store people know who you are, but theyll tell you great game and thats it. There are no photo shoots or people asking for photos every five seconds.

President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. Eleventh place may be little reward for what Supercars great Mark Skaife described as a once in a generation drive at this years Bathurst 1000.But it will make a fired up Jamie Whincup almost unstoppable in this weekends Gold Coast 600, Skaife says.Whincup looks set to have a finish of 11th place for October 9s Great Race confirmed after his appeal over a time penalty that cost him a fifth Bathurst 1000 crown was dismissed on Tuesday night.He broke the race lap record three times and crossed the line first at Mount Panorama, only to be hit with a 15 second time penalty for his role in a late incident involving Volvos Scott McLaughlin and Holdens Garth Tander.Red Bull Racing have seven days after the verdict to decide whether to take their case to the FIA International Court of Appeal but have indicated they are unlikely to do so.Skaife believed Whincup would vent his frustration over his failed Bathurst 1000 appeal and dominate this weekends Gold Coast round.His drive at Bathurst was one of the best I have ever seen, five-time Supercars series champion Skaife said.It was a once in a generation style drive.Clearly he is disappointed not to have had the reward for it.I believe he will come out this weekend with all guns blazing - he will be very hard to beat.Provisional Bathurst victor Will Davison and co-driver Jonathon Webb look set to hold onto the winners Peter Brock Trophy after RBR indicated they would not pursue their appeaal. Yeezy 350 v2 France. We respect the authority of the court and wish to thank all those who have supported us during this process, an RBR statement said.Particularly our fans, our team partners and the respected industry members in the sport who independently voiced their opinions that Jamie raced hard and fair and nothing more.With just three events remaining this year, the team is focused on delivering our partners and fans the best possible results for a strong finish to the 2016 season.Skaife felt for Davison and Webb during the appeal process.Its been pretty difficult for Will and Jon to digest until it is ratified, he said.For them it has been like winning a grand final and then not knowing if you have, so I have felt for them.Skaife hoped the appeal would lead to racing rules such as redressing being clarified.Whincup had hoped to prove in his appeal that he had redressed or fallen back behind McLaughlin in order to avoid a penalty after making contact with the Volvo driver while passing on lap 150.It took just 50 minutes for the Supercars National Court of Appeal in Melbourne to dismiss Whincups appeal.The redress rule works if there is just two cars involved - when there is more there can be issues which we saw at Bathurst, Skaife said.The penalty has got to fit the crime. Our sport has work to do. ' ' '

RICHMOND, Va. Custom Chiefs Super Bowl Jerseys . -- After seven months and 28 races, NASCAR has hit that part of the season that really matters. The start of the playoffs signifies a shift in attitude and aggression, and if there was any doubt the mindset had changed, Kevin Harvick posted a warning about his mood for the next 10 weeks.It was a video of an angry bull charging into the grandstands.And so the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship begins Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway with 16 drivers laser-focused on the big prize. Its 10 races, three rounds of elimination, and every man for himself.So dont be surprised if tempers boil over, paint is traded on the track, angry words are exchanged. Its already started, to a degree. Tony Stewart has intentionally wrecked drivers in two consecutive races, including Saturday nights regular-season finale with contact that officially ended Ryan Newmans shot at making the Chase.A frustrated Newman called his former boss bipolar and said Stewart had anger issues. Stewart was nonchalant, said Newman had it coming after running into him three times at Richmond.Remember, the Chase and this format can bring out the worst in even the most mild-mannered driver. Matt Kenseth tackled Brad Keselowski in a very un-Kenseth-like attack in 2014, then he earned a NASCAR suspension last year for an intentional crash that ruined Joey Loganos title chances.Denny Hamlin, who won Saturday night at his home track to give Joe Gibbs Racing three consecutive victories at Richmond and wins in nine of the last 15, said the jockeying for the final spots in the Chase field led to some of the recent aggression. He also speculated the length of the season could be a contributor, especially for drivers not battling for the title.Some guys have a care factor thats really low right now, Hamlin said. I think things get a little bit tamer in the Chase because people are aware of the Chase cars. Whether they say so or not, they definitely race a little bit more careful around those guys, especially when youre not racing for a win.As for the Chase drivers themselves? When the field will be trimmed by four at the end of each round, Hamlin expects to see tense racing.As guys get eliminated, it could definitely ramp back up again, he said.Harvick certainly plans to live up to his word.The 2014 champion, the first winner under the elimination format, has never backed down from anyone or anything. His scathing assessment of his pit crew led to two changes to his race team last week. When he was flagged for speeding on pit road, driver error instead of team error, it could have been seen as a bit of karma working against Harvick for being less than politically correct about his own crew.He doesnt care what it takes, though, he just wants results.You just have to be selfish. You have to do whats best for your team, worry about the consequences when all the dust settles, he said. You have to be narrow-minded, not listen to anything, and do whatever it takes to figure out how to make the best performance. Every point matters. This is a minute-by-minute battle.You just try to think of dotting every I and crossing every T because thats what its all about, and you have to get everything out of every person that touches everything on that car at another level to win this deal.So now its about strategy and how each driver plans to attack each round.For some, like Chris Buescher, just getting into the 16-driver field was the prize. Last years Xfinity Series champion made the Chase by winning a rain-shortened race at Pocono, but he doesnt want to settle for a happy to be here attitude.We look at this first round, and we want to make it past that round. We want to move through the Chase, Buescher said. Then we can re-evaluate from there. If we can keep going farther and improve our program each and every weekend, thats always going to be what were aiming to do.Stewart is also assessing his final Chase appearance before he retires at the end of the year. He slumped his way into the 2011 Chase and said his team didnt even deserve a spot in the field.Then he won the whole thing, his third NASCAR title.So hes just going to play this one by ear.Who knows whats going to happen? he said. All I care about right now is getting ready for Chicago. Once we get through that, Ill worry about Week 2. This is a stressful 10 weeks and you take it one week at a time. Thats what we did in `11, and it worked. Daniel Sorensen Jersey .

"I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. For a man who is about to take on one of the worlds best boxers, Jazza Dickens has showed no signs of anxiety.In fact, he has appeared almost blasé.The Briton will undoubtedly be the underdog when he boxes Guillermo Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KOs) for the WBA super-bantamweight title at Ice Arena in Cardiff, Wales, on Saturday.But Dickens told ESPN: This has been the same as every other fight, Ive not done anything different just because its him.Hes the same as any other fighter, hes no god with special powers. If God grants me the victory then great, but if it doesnt happen then its not the end of the world.Devout Catholic Dickens (22-1, 7 KOs) claims he has only watched a few clips of the world No. 1 super-bantamweight, who is No. 7 in ESPNs pound-for-pound rankings.Im not a massive boxing fan, he added. I watch my own fights and the lads in the gym, but I dont really follow the sport. So I dont know if hes dipped in form in his last few years.I havent watched too munch of him. I saw a few rounds on YouTube, saw how he moves and when he throws punches, when he doesnt, and thats enough. Ive seen enough.I never look too much into reputations. Reputations are man made and that shouldnt be enough to make me scared.Rigondeaux, 35, is a two-time Olympic gold medallist who has been in possession of various world title belts for over five years while Dickens, from Liverpool, England, has not fought beyond domestic level.But British champion Dickens, 255, hopes to capitalise on Rigondeauxs inactivity. Reggie Ragland Jersey. The Miami-based Cuban has boxed just three times in two years due to promotional problems while performances in the ring have attracted criticism for a lack of action, like his last fight in November against Drian Francisco, where he had a unanimous points win over 10 rounds.In any job you need to be fluent, and in boxing you need to be fighting regularly, Dickens added. Rigondeaux has had a lot of time off so it will have an effect on him personally. You have to be doing it all the time, like any job.I think hes coming here because hes got a great reputation and he doesnt sell places out and nowhere in America wanted him. He will have to be more exciting than his last fights, he has to do more in this fight.If you look at the fight on paper, hes levels above me, so he will have to go for it against me, he cant just coast it.As an amateur he was one of the best in the world, and there wont be many more like him, but as a professional he needs to fight for the full 12 rounds, which he hasnt done recently, so I think he will give it a go against me.Hes taken this fight because he thinks he will blow me away and get a bit of fan base in the UK on the back of it and maybe fight another British opponent. But hopefully Gods plan will not work out like that. ' ' ' 
Willie Mullins felt Shaneshill and Nichols Canyon were feeling the effects of a long campaign after the Graham Wylie-owned duo finished second and third respectively in the Calvin Houghland Iroquois Hurdle on Saturday.

He was always in the right place at the right time.The horse jumped flawlessly and the trainer had him tuned to the highest level.It all came together for this most important race. Rawnaq gave it all and you cannot ask for more of a horse than to give his all.He is the best and I think he will represent the US well at Cheltenham.

He won the 2011 Bob Hope Classic for his lone tour title.It was a great round overall, Vegas said. From the beginning all the way to the end, I felt like I did exactly what I had planned at the beginning of the day. Was able to hit the ball straight from tee, take advantage of the par 5s. I played the par 5s at 4 under, which is really good on this place. I was able to manage some missed shots that I hit to make some good pars to shoot a great round.Former Auburn player Blayne Barber was a stroke back at 66 along with Martin Laird, Ben Crane, Shawn Stefani, Matt Bettencourt, Michael Kim and Lucas Lee.Turned the heat up, Laird said about the temperature. I played nicely. The course is in good shape, so if you put it in the right spot and hit some good shots you can make some putts.

It was nice to get off to a good start, especially in this heat. It kind of maybe started wearing on me just a little bit the last couple holes, you kind of start getting hungry, trying to eat lunch and started to get a little hotter.Former Auburn player Michael Johnson shot a 67 in his pro debut.I couldnt ask for a better way to start my career, Johnson said. It was awesome. Played with two great guys (Omar Uresti and Dawie van der Walt), which helps. It was a great day, weather was good.

The home side created most of the chances but struggled to break down Braunschweigs resilient defence, resulting in the Bundesligas 1,000th scoreless draw. INCHEON, South Korea -- Brett Coletta shot his second straight 5-under 67 on Friday to take a one-stroke lead over fellow Australian Cameron Davis in the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.Im just delighted, Coletta said. I just focused, hit some great shots and the score showed. It was actually the complete opposite wind to yesterday and it helped to look at that before we teed off as it was a bit blustery.The 20-year-old Coletta eagled the par-5 15th and had five birdies and two bogeys at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club, the site of the Presidents Cup matches last year.To be completely honest I didnt feel I hit it as good today striking-wise, but its how good your bad shots are, not how good your good shots are, Coletta said. There were definitely some shots out there that didnt suit my eye, so I was quite nervous over those shots. Its the biggest event Ive ever played. For a first-timer thats really nerve-wracking.The winner Sunday will receive a spot in the Masters in the event conducted by the Asia Pacific Golf Confederation, the Masters and The R&A.Obviously its a high reward at stake, Coletta said. This weekend, some decisions might change depending on the situation. Like a couple of times today there were some risk-reward shots and I turned it down and said Im in a good position. Id probably say no again. ... I dont think Ive surprised myself. I know Im up to this level if Im pplaying well. Yeezy 350 Oxford Tan Cheap. Its just a matter of doing it.The 21-year-old Davis, the first-round leader after a 65, birdied the last two holes for a 70.It was good to salvage a decent score, Davis said. To finish a couple under par and still be near the top is good.Davis was second behind Chinas Jin Cheng last year in Hong Kong in the rain-shortened tournament. Two weeks ago in Mexico, Davis led Australia to victory in the World Amateur Team Championship and won the individual title.Japans Junya Kameshiro was third at 7 under after a 69.Curtis Luck, the Australian who wrapped up a Masters invitation in August with his U.S. Amateur victory, shot a 69 to match Thailands K.K.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- For Australian Mack Horton, having his Chinese rival Sun Yang bomb out of the Olympic 1500m freestyle event is water off a swimmers back. Nyle McFarlane Jersey Retro .Horton sealed his spot in the 1500m final, but Sun - the world record-holder and defending Olympic champion - wont be there after crashing in Fridays heats at the Rio Games.It doesnt really matter if hes there or not, to be honest, Horton said.Im just doing my own thing.Horton, after beating a field including Sun to win the 400m freestyle gold medal earlier in the week, sparked controversy by labelling the Chinese swimmer a drug cheat.Sun was banned for three months in 2014 for doping.Hortons comments triggered a chorus of support from swimmers including American legend Michael Phelps criticising the presence of past drug cheats at Rios Games.Chinas Olympic officials also demanded Horton apologise, a request roundly rejected by Australian hierarchy.Asked on Friday if he was surprised by the furore, Horton replied: Probably not.I dont know. Im not really paying that much attention to it, he said.The Olympic village is kind of like a bubble and you just stick to your own sort of thing in your little tower.Horton qualified fourth-fastest for Saturday nights final but a sagging Sun was 16th-quickest and missed the cut.

The mission was clear: Go to the NBA. Take over. Do so in a way that told the basketball world a new era had arrived.If you were not a part of his inner circle, Allen Iverson didnt give a damn about you. The thing is, he was atypical in that he wanted you to know it, specifically because it was his way of saying he knew you would never give a damn about him anyway, no matter how much you smiled in his face.His talent would make you care.His performance would make you salivate.His achievements would make you kneel.All the way to the Hall of Fame, someday.Iversons story is not foreign, of course. Its similar to that of many players in todays NBA. Most are African-Americans. Most come from impoverished backgrounds. Almost all strive to elevate themselves to a level of greatness that has forced a global audience to pay attention, to emulate, then join.Yet very few have ever impacted basketball like Iverson. No matter how hard they try.I always tell folks I played every game like its my last, Iverson said earlier this week, in advance of his Hall of Fame induction on Friday. And I meant that. But sometimes I dont think people realize what I mean when I say that. Its not just about playing so hard; its why I played so hard. You know what I mean? Its what I wondered would happen to me if I didnt do it.Youve got to know my history and how I truly feel to realize where Im coming from.But few will ever know. No matter how hard they try.During to a career that would culminate with Iverson averaging 26.7 points per game, winning four scoring titles and one MVP -- at 6 feet, 165 pounds -- folks witnessed his heroics but barely knew the intimate challenges he faced.Iverson knew being incarcerated, then granted clemency, wasnt a likable trait for Madison Avenue; that he wasnt the ideal spokesman for the NBA. Iverson knew a visibly polished Kobe Bryant was preferable to the tattoos, cornrows and street persona proudly worn on the sleeves, neck and elsewhere on this former All-American out of Georgetown.But Iverson also knew everyone couldnt be Bryant or Michael Jordan. He knew that if MJ and Kobe -- and no one else -- were the standard, society wouldnt have a true depiction of NBA stars to come.I was 6 feet, so folks could relate to that, he once told me. I was 165 pounds, so folks could relate to that. But I was also someone who wanted to be me, judged for what I do and who I am, instead of what you say Im suppose to be. Its true that some [people] dont want to play the game, but a lot of dudes dont know how to. And even the ones that do, most aint going to be accepted. So what about them?Even today that is still a legitimate question.LeBron James has helped provide answers by showing you he can be a champion, pre-eminent role model and global icon, even if tattoos are draped all over his body. Steph Curry has proven as much, as well, by being a baby-faced, long-range assassin who, at 6-foot-3, looks like a regular dude instead of a Goliath of a man.From Carmelo Anthonny to Chris Paul to Dwyane Wade and beyond, players are speaking not just with their play on the court, but with their willingness to address issues off the court. Jim Ritcher Jersey Retro. . And although Iverson is no innovator in that department, his willingness to express himself certainly made it easier for athletes to open up more in a day and age thats demanding it, not asking.What few knew is that Iverson wasnt this way because he couldnt help himself. He was that way because he could be, because he wanted the world to look beyond the veneer, forcing everyone to acknowledge that you didnt have to look, act or Be Like Mike to be immensely popular to basketball and the world.In the midst of all of that, there were personal challenges.There were friends and family who always wanted money and time. There was a loving wife, Tawanna, whom he fully admits he should have appreciated more. There were many days when charity was expected instead of appreciated. There was even a time, according to close confidants, when a member of his inner circle forgot where they parked a Bentley, a ride Iverson had purchased for them, at Philadelphia International Airport -- and instead of continuing to look for it, they simply went to the dealership and bought another one because, well, they could.I didnt know anything about that, Iverson once told me. Maybe because I didnt want to know, honestly!The challenges were relentless. And this was before Twitter, Facebook and the like became so entrenched. But Iverson still marched on.He rose. He fell. He crumbled. Then rose again. Financially. Ethically. Morally at times. Letting critics talk, cynics swell and allowing his life to become far more difficult than it needed to be.There were many occasions when it wasnt even Allen who had done anything, former Sixers president Billy King once told me. It couldve been someone in [Iversons] crew. But it didnt matter. You might as well blame him because the last thing he was going to do was tell on anyone. No matter the reason. Not matter the consequences. Hed take the heat himself for anyone he cared about, and simply say he wasnt perfect.The Answer will tell anyone he was a mess at times. That he couldve been better, but wasnt. But along the way, while talking of his trials and tribulations, hell ask that you remember his triumphs. Hell ask that while saying what you want, dont forget to tell the end of the story.Iverson will ask that you dont omit how he performed under adverse circumstances. How he never cheated fans with his effort, even when tempted to do otherwise. And how, in the end, that is the reason hes so proud hell be in the same building as the all-time greats.Perhaps Iverson gave a damn, after all. He just had to act like he didnt to be considered one of the best ever.Nobody truly knows the road I traveled, he said.Chances are, they will by this weekend. ' ' ' 
Melbourne have maintained their charge for the NRL minor premiership with a classy 26-10 win over the Sydney Roosters at AAMI Park. Will Smith Jersey .The victory gives Melbourne the provisional competition lead, although previous front-runners Cronulla have the chance to go two points clear again on Sunday afternoon when they host Newcastle.Melbourne scored two late tries, through Tohu Harris and Kevin Proctor, that boosted the margin but the Storm were pushed for much of the match by the Roosters despite their contrasting ladder positions.The last time the teams met, back in round 14, the Storm delivered the Roosters worst loss of the season with a 46-0 shellacking.But it took the visitors just four minutes to improve on that total with Blake Ferguson taking advantage of a kick ricocheting off Cameron Smith, which the fullback scooped up to score.Melbourne hit back 10 minutes later with Dale Finucane running on to a Smith grubber into the in-goal and it was all square at 6-6.The Storm skipper then used the ploy again, this time with Cooper Cronk taking the spoils for a 14-6 lead.That was the margin until the 64th minute with the defence of both sides holding firm until Cronk found second-rower Proctor on the fly.The Roosters had the last say with centre Shaun Kenny-Dowall able to ground a miracle ball in the dying minutes.Compounding the misery for the Roosters, prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves limped off midway through the first half with a knee injury and failed to return.Roosters coach Trent Robinson said while Waerea-Hargreaves injury wasnt serious, he wouldnt be available to face Brisbane at Allianz Stadium on Thursday, with only a five-day turnaround.The Roosters also pushed the Sharks last round before going down and Robinson said their lack of polish was the difference between his team and the ladder leaders.There was a lot of effort and we were in the arm wrestle there in that second half but we lacked execution on the critical times in the game, Robinson said.Were sitting in a position that we dont want to be but we dont hold ourselves as a bottom dweller.We feel were a quality team and we want to play that way and I feel weve done that the last couple of weeks but the reason theyre up the top and were down the bottom is critical plays at critical times and we havent done that.Melbourne captain Cameron Smith praised his teams ability to weather the early barrage from the Roosters.The most pleasing thing about our team this year is that whatever teams throw at us early, we seem to be able to take that punishment and come out the other side, he said.The Roosters started with a lot of energy and intent, the way they carried the football but our defence was good and we just had to stick to that.He said the team wouldnt be celebrating their ladder position.We know were in the top two and thats nice, particularly with the finish weve got against some very good sides.Its pleasing to be in the position were in, particularly getting through State of Origin. Aaron Brooks Jersey . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. Rickey Jackson Jersey .

Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said.

CHICAGO -- Jake Arrieta struck out 10 in seven innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the sloppy St. Chris McAlister Jersey . Louis Cardinals 5-0 on Friday for their 98th victory, the most since they last played in the World Series in 1945.Arrieta (18-7) allowed five hits and walked one, Anthony Rizzo had three hits and Ben Zobrist drove in two runs as the Cubs tied a team record with their 56th home win. They moved within one victory or one Washington loss of clinching home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.Chicago scored four runs in the first inning off Mike Leake (9-11) and dropped the Cardinals a game behind the Mets and Giants for the two NL wild-card berths.Pedro Strop came off the disabled list to work the eighth, and Travis Wood and Carl Edwards Jr. finished the five-hitter. Authentic Custom Ravens Jersey . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. Domata Peko Sr. Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. http://www.customravensjersey.com/custom-marcus-peters-jersey-large-1353d.html . 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. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has been happy with his defenses progress over the past month, but a true indication of how much improvement the unit has made could come Saturday at Syracuse.The 17th-ranked Seminoles (7-3, 4-3 ACC) have struggled against teams that run up-tempo offenses. The Orange (4-6, 1-5) come until the game averaging 79.3 offensive plays per game under first-year coach Dino Babers, which is an average of 16 more plays per game than last year. They also average one snap every 21.4 seconds on offense.FSU has already faced three teams -- Ole Miss (16.3 seconds). South Florida (21.1 seconds) and North Carolina (21.5 seconds) -- that averaged a snap in under 22 seconds. The Seminoles are 2-1 in those games but fell behind in all three. Miami also went up tempo at times as it built a double-digit lead only to see FSU rally to win in the fourth quarter. In all four games, communication problems and missed assignments were common.Even with quarterback Eric Dungey out in last weeks loss to North Carolina State, the Orange still averaged one snap every 21.2 seconds. Dungey (shoulder/head) is doubtful for Saturdays game which means Zach Mahoney could get the start again.They still threw it for a bunch of yards and moved it up and down the field. Theyre still going to do what they do, Fisher said. Theyve got skilled receivers and backs and big guys. They do a good job.Linebacker Matthew Thomas, who is second on the team in tackles with 50, said that getting the call in from the sideline quickly to line up will be a big key this week. Starting with the Oct. 1 game against North Carolina, the Seminoles have used play cards on the sideline when facing up-tempo teams.Thomas added that everybody has to be on the same page and communicate. Torrey Smith Jersey. ..so we dont give up any busted plays, stuff like that.With the defensive line mostly healthy, Florida State is hoping to generate consistent pressure. It comes into the game second in the Atlantic Coast Conference in sacks with 33 while Syracuse has allowed the fourth most in the conference (27).Besides tempo, the challenge for the Seminoles secondary will be containing chunk plays. They have allowed 42 pass plays of 20 yards or more, which is tied for fifth most among Power 5 teams.They also cant focus in on just one receiver. The Orange are one of six Football Bowl Subdivision teams to have three receivers with 40 catches or more.Senior Amba Etta-Tawo is fourth nationally in receiving yards per game (124.6) and junior Ervin Phillips has two games of 10 receptions or more. Junior Steve Ishmael did not play last week due to injury but could return this week.Syracuse has 40 pass plays of 20 yards or more with Etta-Tawo accounting for 19.They like to get the ball out quick and take shots when they can. They do a good job of playing with their personnel, cornerback Marquez White said.White is likely to be matched up against Etta-Tawo, who he compared to North Carolinas Bug Howard because he is more of a possession receiver.I think the main thing for us this week is to take away that space, he said. You see a lot of teams like to play him off and give him soft throws. Thats not what I plan on doing this week.--More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy on Twitter at www.twitter.com/joereedy ' ' '

South Florida (21.1 seconds) and North Carolina (21.5 seconds) -- that averaged a snap in under 22 seconds. The Seminoles are 2-1 in those games but fell behind in all three. Miami also went up tempo at times as it built a double-digit lead only to see FSU rally to win in the fourth quarter.

Junior Steve Ishmael did not play last week due to injury but could return this week.Syracuse has 40 pass plays of 20 yards or more with Etta-Tawo accounting for 19.They like to get the ball out quick and take shots when they can. They do a good job of playing with their personnel, cornerback Marquez White said.White is likely to be matched up against Etta-Tawo, who he compared to North Carolinas Bug Howard because he is more of a possession receiver.I think the main thing for us this week is to take away that space, he said.
