and another week when daily fantasy sports contests were won by rostering the passing attack from just a handful of games.Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 300-plus yards and six touchdowns in a 42-27 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers New Orleans Saints Hoodie , including two scores to tight end Travis Kelce. Behind early and forced to play catch-up, Ben Roethlisberger aired it out 60 times, leading to a 450-yard performance to go along with three passing and one rushing touchdown. Wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster and TE Jesse James both cracked the 100-yard threshold and found the end zone.In total there were more than 180 fantasy points scored in the Chiefs-Steelers game. Meanwhile at Lambeau Field, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins connected with WRs Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen for 90 combined fantasy points.Game stacks have been pivotal to winning daily tournaments this year. The Bucs-Saints shootout in Week 1 and the Chiefs-Steelers shootout for Week 2 both led to millions in prizes.Here are game stacks to target for Week 3:New Orleans at Atlanta (Over-under: 53, Falcons favored by 3 points)The Falcons-Saints game has the second-highest Vegas total this week. Matt Ryan and the Falcons host Drew Brees and company in a game that could make a perfect game stack opportunity with the duo of Ryan and Julio Jones plus New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara. Jones has been targeted 28 times to start the season for nearly 500 air yards, a metric that balances target volume with the depth of those targets. Jones has a 40 percent market share of the Falcons passing attack. On the flip side, Alvin Kamara gets to face a Falcons defense that funnels targets to opposing running backs and gave up 14 catches for 100-plus yards to Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey last weekend. Kamara has 18 targets through the first two weeks and is in a prime spot to make a fantasy splash if the game in Atlanta turns into a shootout. Fantasy owners who are building multiple lineups could also consider mixing in Saints WR Michael Thomas and Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu to their stacks.San Francisco at Kansas City (Over-under: 56, Chiefs favored by 6 1/2 points)While a lot of the attention will be on Patrick Mahomes this week because of his 10 TDs through two games, winning daily fantasy tournaments requires separation from the crowd.Jimmy Garoppolo is in a bounce-back spot against a Chiefs defense that has allowed more than 1,000 yards per game of total offense and given up more than 400 yards passing in back-to-back games. While the Chiefs defense should benefit from a home game at Arrowhead, Garoppolo is still in great position to throw for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns and will look to connect with his favorite target as Marquise Goodwin hopefully returns to the 49ers lineup. Garoppolo-Goodwin stacks can also be mixed with 49ers tight end George Kittle — who could be lower owned after disappointing players as a popular pick last week. He will return value for fantasy owners if he can even replicate half of Jesse James' stat line from last week. Chiefs players Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Sammy Watkins are all candidates to "bring it back" and should be inserted into your lineups to make a full-on game stack.This column was provided to The Associated Press by DailyRoto, ://dailyroto Tennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis has been so focused on football with his new team that he didn't realize until a few days into training camp just how special the benches on each sideline really are.Now he takes a couple of minutes whenever possible during practice to sit and cool off.Literally."It's great," said Lewis, who spent the past three years with New England. "It's real hot ... so whenever you use anything to make you cool down a little bit, I think it's a great tool. It's been here for the whole time, but I just realized it like probably last week. So definitely take advantage of that whenever I get a chance."Keeping football players cool during the sweltering days of training camp is critical, especially in the wake of the heat-related death of Minnesota offensive tackle Korey Stringer in August 2001 and the June death of Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair . An attorney for the McNair family says a preliminary death certificate indicates the cause of death was heatstroke.Old-fashioned tubs filled with water and bags of ice await NFL players, even for teams staying at their headquarters this time of year. A few minutes provides a quick Cheap Customized New Orleans Saints Jerseys , but very wet, recovery once practice is over.The Titans and New Orleans Saints both decided to give players a chance to cool off during practice, improving both safety and the workouts.With a new coach in Mike Vrabel, the Titans put a bench on each side of their three practice fields, giving players a chance to recover when the temperature during morning practices can feel like 90 degrees."I don't think our players have done a good enough job of taking advantage of it, but, we're trying it out," Vrabel said."Going to Miami and Jacksonville in the early games here, if there's anything we can do to keep our guys as fresh as possible on the sideline, we're going to try."In hot and humid Jacksonville, the Jaguars have had such cooling benches for years in the shade and near huge fans to use during breaks.The New Orleans Saints have used a cooling tent for years, even when holding training camp at Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi. With the tent kept off to the side of the football fields, it wound up too far away for the Saints to slip over during practices.This August, an 18-wheeler dropped off what looks like a massive storage trailer. Inside, it's actually a chilly 25 degrees featuring dim lighting and black padded folding chairs.The Saints can walk in for a quick refresher or sit down to drop the body temperature. If needed, coach Sean Payton can put a whole position group inside at once, especially effective for big men such as offensive or defensive linemen."As bodies go in there, it goes to 28 Youth Ryan Ramczyk Jersey ," Payton said. "But it's almost three times colder than a tent."Payton said colleges such as LSU and Alabama are among those already using the cooling trailer. Being in muggy Louisiana, the Saints didn't have to go far to find a company that could help them out.Payton said when the temperatures soar, teams can't cool players down enough. The trailer allows New Orleans to keep the Saints refreshed enough to practice, not just survive until the final horn signals a blissful end."You want to not just be running plays, and then you also have an answer if someone is going through a second-level heat illness or God forbid something more serious," Payton said."But, the first thing we want to be able to do is cool the core temperatures down. We've always taken a lot of breaks, so we've handled the heat well. We've had to. But if you went back to Millsaps even, we had a cool tent. This is just much colder."The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don't use cooling benches. For the first time, they are making good use of an indoor practice facility — complete with air conditioning — that was completed earlier this year.Despite playing in Florida, the Buccaneers had never had an indoor practice field before now, and coach Dirk Koetter has used it liberally.He's started several practices outdoors before going inside where the Bucs even installed bleachers for fans attending open sessions. Koetter also keeps the Bucs inside for walkthroughs to avoid the heat.Just standing near the cooling bench is comfortable enough to watch an entire practice without even needing to sit on the chilled aluminum seats. Titans running back Derrick Henry tested the cooling bench last weekend and liked what he found. A big man at 6-foot-3, Henry says he won't use it too much to avoid stiffening up.Walking by to cool off?"It feels good, especially because it's hot out here," Henry said. "It's camp, and we got to put it to use. It's a good tool for us to cool our body off, so we're ready when we go back out there."AP Sports Writers Brett Martel in Louisiana and Fred Goodall in Florida contributed to this report.Follow Teresa M.

after two consecutive victories on the road , and six wins in a row. Their welcome home present is a meeting with the undefeated Los Angeles Rams, who have the one of the NFL's most explosive and diversified offenses. The Rams have the league's 3rd highest point production in the league this season, averaging 33 points per game (the Saints are second at 33.4), and their 443 total yards per game is the second highest in the NFL. The Saints defense is playing with more aggressiveness and higher confidence with each week. They still rank just 23rd in total yardage (374 per game) and points allowed (an average of 26.1/game), but have allowed more than 23 points just twice this season. They will now be tested against perhaps the most imaginative offense in the league. Let's have a look at some of the key matchups to watch when the Saints defense lines up across from the Rams offense. SAINTS PASS DEFENSE vs. RAMS PASS OFFENSE Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty ImagesNewly acquired Saints cornerback Eli Apple got his first start for the team on Sunday against Minnesota, just five days after being added in a trade with the Giants. Apple would wind up leading his new team in tackles, and despite two penalties, showed the type of man to man coverage ability that the defense had been lacking opposite of Pro Bowler Marshon Lattimore. The Saints hope that Apple's coverage skills will shore up what had been a glaring weakness for a 23rd ranked pass defense that is giving up 300 yards per contest. Marshon Lattimore is one of the better corners in the league, but the team has been extremely vulnerable with P.J. Williams and Ken Crawley, often heavily targeted by opponents. If Apple proves to be a solid compliment to Lattimore, then safeties Marcus Williams and Vonn Bell will be freed up for other coverage responsibilities, including extra support for Williams and Crawley when they're in the lineup. The communication in the secondary has been greatly improved, and New Orleans had not allowed a 300-yd. passer in the previous three games before Minnesota's Kirk Cousins threw for 359 last week. The Saints pass rush, especially from the defensive line, has been the strength of the team's pass defense. They sacked Cousins four times, and have 17 sacks on the year, with 15 coming from the defensive front. End Cameron Jordan is having another All-Pro campaign, and leads the team with 5 sacks and ten quarterback hits. Rookie Marcus Davenport (4 sacks) is making a bigger impact each week, and has already shown why New Orleans traded up in the draft to select him. Tackle Sheldon Rankins (4sacks) is having a pro bowl season of his own. His disruptive presence in the middle not only collapses a pass pocket , but can change opposing blocking schemes, potentially putting Jordan or Davenport in one on one opportunities on the outside. The Saints linebackers have all proven to be effective blitzers, but have also been able to match up well in coverage against opposing backs and tight ends, taking some pressure off the secondary.Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThird year Rams quarterback Jared Goff leads a passing attack that averages 292 yards per game, 7th best in the league, and is already one of the NFL's top signal callers. He has one of the strongest arms in the game, and very good athleticism to move away from the rush. He has three versatile wideouts to throw to in Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and former Saints playmaker Brandin Cooks, along with solid depth in Josh Reynolds and kick returner JoJo Natson. Kupp, who has 30 catches for 438 yards and a team high five scores, has missed the last two games with a knee injury but looks like he could be back this week. Woods is the team's leading receiver with 46 catches for 672 yards and 3 scores, while Cooks (35-643yds., 2 td) has been a big addition to the offense, adding another big play element. Rams running back Todd Gurley is nearly as dangerous coming out of the backfield as a receiver as he is a runner, catching 31 passes for 351 yards and 4 touchdowns. Goff has been sacked 17 times so far this year, but went down five times last week against Green Bay and five more times two weeks before that against the Denver Broncos. Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images~ Matchup to Watch: Saints CB's vs. Rams WR's ~ Goff threw for 354 yards and 2 scores in the Rams 26-20 over New Orleans last season, although he was sacked four times. Saints cornerbacks Lattimore and Crawley both missed last season's matchup however, out with injury. Without them Authentic Patrick Robinson Jersey , Kupp and the since-departed Sammy Watkins combined for 12 catches and 198 yards. Kupp's quickness in returning from his knee injury is worth watching, but the Rams use all of their wideouts effectively on bubble screens and deadly crossing patterns to get them in open space. Lattimore and Apple will be challenged athletically, but will look to match up in man coverage, and all the Saints defensive backs must be physical with the shifty Los Angeles receivers. SAINTS RUN DEFENSE vs. RAMS RUN OFFENSE Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsThe Saints continue to lead the league in run defense, allowing opponents only 3.2 yards per rush and surrendering just 74 yards per game on the ground. Linebackers Demario Davis and A.J. Klein have been dominant as run defenders, and are the team leaders in tackles. The New Orleans defensive linemen are consistently winning their showdowns up front, not only pushing into the offensive backfield, but often allowing the linebackers free reign to opposing backs. Defensive tackles Taylor Stallworth and Tyeler Davison team with Rankins to give the Saints a wall in the middle, while Alex Okafor, Cam Jordan, and Davenport are good run defenders along the edge. Vonn Bell provides excellent run support from his safety position, and linebackers Manti Te'o, Craig Robertson, and Alex Anzalone are aggressive in flowing to the ball and keeping containment. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThe Rams have the NFL's top ranked rushing attack, averaging 151 yards per game and 4.8 per carry. Todd Gurley has gashed defenses for 800 yards and 11 touchdowns, and is one of the (non-quarterback) midseason leaders for league M.V.P. The Rams use their receivers very effectively on end arounds, often resulting in a big gain when defenses crash inside on Gurley and lose containment responsibilities. Goff and the high flying passing game may get the headlines, but the Los Angeles offense centers around the abilities of Gurley, perhaps the best all-around back in the league. Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports~ Matchup to Watch: Saints LB's vs. Gurley ~Gurley had 74 yards rushing and 54 receiving when these teams met last November , but the Rams had a heavy emphasis on the pass due to the absence of Lattimore and Crawley in the Saints lineup. Davis, Klein, and the rest of the improved New Orleans linebacking corps will face their most daunting task of the year. Gurley already has 1,151 yards from scrimmage this season and an eye-popping 15 touchdowns. He is just as dangerous bouncing a play to the outside as he is between the tackles. The New Orleans defense must get immediate hits on the talented running back to keep him from destroying them in the open field. WHAT TO LOOK FOR:Chuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsThe Rams have failed to score 30 points just twice this season, but both have come within the last three weeks, games where Goff was sacked a combined 10 times. New Orleans brought the Rams quarterback down four times in last year's game, and three times in a 2016 home win against Los Angeles, with Jordan totaling 3 sacks himself. The Saints run defense must be up to the task of at least slowing the dynamic Gurley, and put the onus on Goff to beat them. The Saints linebackers must be fast and precise in their coverage drops when L.A. does throw, hopefully altering the Rams crossing routes and impeding Goff's throwing lanes. Expect the New Orleans secondary to physical early at the line of scrimmage against the smaller Los Angeles wideouts. Lattimore and Apple are most effective at that style of play, and Brandin Cooks in particular (as Saints fans know) has struggled against physical man coverage. We thought we were done with the Saints being an abject disaster on defense and the cure for any teams problems. Is it 2014 all over again after the 48-40 loss to Tampa? Ralph explains why the loss to the Bucs might have been his fault. Dave was at the game and is... well...angry. Andrew is depressed because there aren’t any simple fixes to this defense. On the bright side, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas are unstoppable and the Saints offensive line looks as good as advertised.Become a Patron and get access to more shows for as little as $1 dollar a month and help us raise enough money to do daily podcast.Want to join the fun or ask the guys a question, tweet them @PodcastSaints, like their Facebook page,or email them at Saints History Archive!Our NEW Patreon page is live: will remain active and ALL new Patron content will be loaded to the Podbean Patron page as well as the new Patreon page.

that we have been waiting for and Drew Brees made history with a pass to a rookie who scored his first NFL touchdown. Here are 5 things that stood out against Washington. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsMarcus DavenportDavenport continues to show us why he was taken so high in the draft. He was able to consistently get pressure on Alex Smith as well as defend against the run. He did a good job at setting the edge New Orleans Saints T-Shirt , especially on one play where he tackled Chris Thompson for a loss. If his upward trajectory continues, this defensive line could get scary. Tre’Quan Smith Smith finally had his own breakout game and scored his first touchdown in the NFL. Unfortunately for Smith, he won’t be able to keep the ball from his first touchdown reception because it will reside in Canton, Ohio, as it was the record-breaking pass for Drew Brees. He may however get to keep another ball from the night, as he scored his second touchdown later in the second half. Its good to finally see other skill players stepping up, especially one from this year’s draft class. Mark IngramSpeaking of skill players stepping up, Mark Ingram has finally returned to the lineup New Orleans Saints Hats , and he did not waste anytime announcing it. He rushed 16 times for 53 yards and two touchdowns and added 2 receptions for 20 yards. Alvin Kamara didn’t have to shoulder the bulk of the load like he has been the last few games. This will help him stay effective over the course of the season and also keep defenses honest when you have two dual threat running backs to defend. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsInjuries and DepthApparently, the football gods do not want to see Marshon Lattimore play against the Redskins. It is the second year in a row that he has gone down with an injury early in the game. This time it was a scary looking concussion as his head was slammed into the shoulder of linebacker AJ Klein. Speaking of Klein, he later went down with an injury but was able to return, as did Ken Crawley. Taylor Stallworth was carted off with what appeared to be a lower leg injury. Hopefully it is nothing serious, but if it is, we may see Jay Bromley signed to the team again. Justin Hardee, who played cornerback for the first time in a live game Monday night, stepped up when filling in for the aforementioned Lattimore. He made good tackles and was decent in coverage New Orleans Saints Hoodie , recording his first interception that he nearly took for 6 points before being tripped up. Hopefully Lattimore will be able to play after the bye, but it’s nice to know that we have someone behind him who can at least fill in for half a game.Balanced AttackThe offense was able to maintain their balanced approached with 32 rushing attempts and 29 passes. It is important to maintain that balance in order to prevent defenses from zeroing in on the pass. This should continue into future games now that Ingram is back. Jacksonville Jaguars safety Tashaun Gipson has a collection of footballs waiting to be displayed in his man cave.All of them are ones he intercepted during his seven years in the NFL.Drew Brees. Ben Roethlisberger. Joe Flacco.Gipson hopes to add to his haul Sunday when the Jaguars (3-1) play at unbeaten Kansas City and against second-year sensation Patrick Mahomes ."He's so good I hope he throws me one," Gipson said Wednesday. "How 'bout this? I'm going to talk him up all week. He's playing so good that when I pick him off I might have to put his ball up there with Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees. That's how good I think he is."Gipson was being a little sarcastic.Although he gave Mahomes plenty of credit for starting the season with 14 touchdown passes and no interceptions, he also made it clear that he likes his team's chances in a matchup featuring the league's top offense against the league's No. 1 defense ."I'm taking this defense over everyone, no matter who we're playing against, no matter who's on offense," Gipson said. "We've got the guys over here to do it. This is something that we're built for. We're built on speed. We're built on toughness. We're built on that fire and passion. We're going to have a good outing on Sunday."On a defense filled with playmakers and trash-talkers, Gipson might be the best combination of both.He guaranteed a victory against New England in Week 2 Cheap Customized New Orleans Saints Jerseys , then went out and held Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to two receptions for 15 yards. He insisted New York Jets rookie Sam Darnold would be overwhelmed against Jacksonville last week and vowed to get the secondary's first interception of the season. He did get a pick, but it was overturned because of a holding call on the opposite side of the field.Gipson also mocked Minnesota in the preseason, saying there's no way the Vikings would finish ahead of Jacksonville again in total defense. The Vikings are currently 21st. He also ripped Pro Bowl voting, which made him a fifth alternate last season."All of those guys confused me," Gipson said. "It was a travesty."Gipson had 64 tackles, seven pass breakups and four interceptions in 2017, playing mostly in a single-high-safety scheme that forces him to cover sideline to sideline and often makes him the last line of defense.He has 364 tackles and 19 interceptions total.He's often overshadowed on a defense that includes cornerback Jalen Ramsey, linebacker Telvin Smith and defensive ends Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue. But he's far from overlooked by coaches and teammates."We call him the tight end whisperer Color Rush Benjamin Watson Jersey ," Smith said.Gipson has made it a goal to make the Pro Bowl this season and can add to his resume against Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who has 23 receptions for 307 yards and three touchdowns. Slowing Kelce might be more important than getting a football with Mahomes' name on it."This is what I get excited for," Gipson said. "This is going to be huge. Not to make this an individual deal, but you want to win your one-on-one matchups. ... If you feel like you're the best, if you feel like you want to put it out there that you're the best, you've got to go against the best."You start getting the respect you deserve once you start doing it against the big people."

6 players to watch during New England’s preseason finale Later today , the New England Patriots will play their fourth and final preseason game of 2018. As usual during the last week of exhibition games, the majority of the Patriots’ starters and roster locks are not expected to play – clearing the way for players on the roster bubble to showcase their skills and value to the team one final time.With that in mind, let’s take a look at six players to keep an eye on tonight:Mike Gillislee: Will he make a final push for a roster spot?After a mostly disappointing 2017 season, Mike Gillislee failed to show consistent progress in his second offseason in the Patriots’ system. As a result, he is currently fighting for his roster life against free agency addition Jeremy Hill – the better of the two running backs this summer. Could a late push by Gillislee make the battle interesting again? It will be hard, but not impossible depending on the ultimate performance.Riley McCarron: Will he win the fourth wide receiver spot?After the release of Kenny Britt and Eric Decker’s retirement James White Jersey , Riley McCarron founds himself on the verge of making New England’s roster as a depth wide receiver and punt returner. However, his spot on the team is not set in stone: the Patriots could still opt to bolster depth elsewhere or bring in outside reinforcements. A good performance tonight could therefore be crucial for the second-year man.Ulrick John: Will he again be the first offensive tackle off the bench?First-round rookie Isaiah Wynn tearing his Achilles opened the door for another offensive tackle to make the team. The battle for this appears to still be on, but offseason acquisition Ulrick John might have the best odds of winning it: during last week’s regular season “dress rehearsal”, he was the first offensive tackle off the bench. It will therefore be interesting to see how his role and performance look like tonight, and whether or not the game against the New York Giants could be an indicator for his future.Vincent Valentine: Will he show his value as a rotational defensive tackle?Having spent all of 2017 on injured reserve, Vincent Valentine had a rather quiet training camp and preseason and is consequently not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man team. A solid outing against New York – like he showed at times during his 2016 rookie season – could ultimately turn out to be crucial when it comes to him making the team as the fifth option at the defensive tackle position.Marquis Flowers: Will he build momentum with roster cuts looming?Like Valentine Authentic Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , Marquis Flowers also was rather quiet over the summer. He received increased playing time last week versus Carolina, but that does not definitely earn him a roster spot as a depth linebacker and special teamer. Flowers will still have to outperform his closest competition – Nicholas Grigsby – in order to make the team. Tonight is his final chance to do that and prove that his solid 2017 season was no fluke.J.C. Jackson: Will he finally live up to the training camp hype?Every training camp has its surprising performers, and this year’s is undrafted rookie cornerback J.C. Jackson. The Maryland product saw plenty of snaps with the starting defense and was active and competitive in team and one-on-one drills. His practice success has not yet led to in-game success, however. Tonight is therefore Jackson’s last chance to show the Patriots and other teams around the league that he is worth a roster spot.Which player or players will you most closely watch during today’s game? Let us know in the comments. If you thought this game would be in the 20s already, don’t feel bad.In fact, it’s a testament to the Chiefs offense this year and Tom Brady‘s over his career that field goals and defensive plays feel like a bit of a letdown.But so far Youth Ryan Allen Jersey , it’s the Patriots up 10-3, after the two teams traded field goals and then Patrick Mahomes made a rare mistake.The Patriots have gotten a good start from Sony Michel so far (seven carries for 47 yards), and the Chiefs stalled short of the goal line on their one possession.Mahomes was a bit high on a few throws already, which one might think to be a possible sign of nerves. Of course, he hasn’t shown that to be the case so far this season.He was just picked off by Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower, however. That was Mahomes’ third interception of the season (against 14 touchdowns) , and the Patriots were quick to take advantage, with Michel scoring on the next play.

Week 1 Patriots vs Texans: After an offseason that was arguably one of the most—if not the most—tumultuous offseasons in Patriots history under Bill Belichick Womens Devin McCourty Jersey , it’s time for the 2018 regular season to get underway today, when the Patriots host the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium at 1 P.M.Turn on local Boston sports radio stations, and you’ll witness a high level of concern among the fan base that is not often seen around these parts. Many predict New England to still make it to the AFC Championship at least, but there are a lot of question marks surrounding this team that have led to many calling into question whether the Pats will cruise through the regular season like they are accustomed to doing. With the offseason coming and going, we have gained clarity in some situations, such as Trent Brown establishing himself as the new starter at the left tackle position from Day One of training camp, but we are also left with questions, such as if the Patriots’ wide receiving corps is enough to help this offense. With that being said, let’s take a look at five questions that are facing the Patriots, as they head into their season opener, and how they can hope to answer them moving forward.1. Is the receiver corps capable of helping Tom Brady?Look, this point has been beaten into the ground by now, I get it. But that doesn’t change the fact that New England’s current stable of receivers is a huge question mark going into tomorrow. As it stands now, with Julian Edelman suspended for four games, Chris Hogan is the #1 wide receiver, and will likely assume the X-receiver position on the field. Hogan had considerable success last season in the slot, and he killed the Texans from the slot last year, as evidenced by this 47-yard touchdown catch last season. Will he able to replicate that success on the outside as the X?After Hogan, it’ll be up to Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson to help pick up the slack. Both had good preseasons, and Dorsett in particular looks ready to make a jump. Dorsett will most likely operate in the slot , but don’t be surprised if he takes some snaps on the outside, so Josh McDaniels can use his speed on the boundaries. McDaniels will be able to mix and match with Dorsett and Hogan, as both have experience on the outside and in the slot. With Patterson, he has shown electric flashes in the preseason, but the question is how many touches per game he will receive.There is certainly loads of big play potential with Patterson, on both offense and special teams, but expect the Patriots to pick their spots on when to take a shot with Patterson for a big play. Expect this position to be in flux, at least until Edelman returns, and possibly longer. Can Brady develop enough chemistry with Dorsett and Patterson to be able to rely on them? And can Hogan, in a contract year, prove that he is capable of being a #1-level receiver? We’ll see.2. Will rookie linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley start?One of the preseason darlings this year was fifth-round linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley, from Purdue University. Bentley came on strong in the first preseason game against the Washington Redskins, and didn’t look back after that. Coming out of college, Bentley was known as a thumper in the run game, who struggled with his mobility and ability to cover. Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY SportsThis preseason, Bentley has looked great however, and has shown himself to be capable in most facets on defense. The linebacker position lacks depth right now, and Bentley is going to be thrust into an important position right away. Elandon Roberts is OK at best, and at his worst, guesses way too much and is a liability on the field. A starting unit of Dont’a Hightower-Kyle Van Noy-Bentley is a strong unit—if Hightower can stay healthy—and while the unit as a whole lacks depth still Youth Rob Gronkowski Jersey , if Bentley can maintain his level of play from the preseason, this bodes well for the Patriots’ defense to improve after a poor performance last year.3. What’s the plan at running back?With Dion Lewis going down to join new Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel down at Patriots South 2.0 (with Houston being 1.0), the Patriots must replace perhaps their second-most dynamic offensive player (Gronk is still most dynamic) from last season. Belichick spent a first-round draft pick to get Sony Michel, but the early returns on that decision are less than encouraging, with Michel having been out for almost the entire preseason after undergoing a procedure on his knee on August 4. Michel has been back at practice for the last week, but it’s tough to see him playing a meaningful role on this team for at least the first month, while he plays catch-up. New England is set at the third-down back position with the dependable James White, and he is poised to take on a big role in the absence of Julian Edelman during Edelman’s suspension. But who will the lead back be? Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsRex Burkhead is the leader in the clubhouse currently, but has struggled to stay healthy since he has been in New England. He sat out much of the regular season with what has been reported to be a slight tear in his knee, but according to the Jeff Howe of The Athletic, he could have played if this occurred in the regular season, and the team has high expectations for him. Every season, the Patriots keep a big back on their roster, who can pick up the tough yards when the team needs them. LeGarrette Blount had a lot of success in this role when he was a Patriot. The team signed Mike Gillislee to replace Blount last year, but that didn’t work out. Jeremy Hill, signed to a one-year deal this offseason, beat out Gillislee in training camp, and looks poised to take on that big back role, and excel in it. Hill has better vision, patience Youth James White Jersey , speed, and agility than either Blount or Gillislee. There are questions about Hill’s health, after getting ankle surgery last season and appearing to hurt it a little bit during a preseason game, but this could be the best signing of the offseason for Belichick, especially if Burkhead gets hurt again. Hill will get plenty of goal-line touches, and could be a valuable fantasy pick-up as well.4. How will the pass rush fare?For the New England defense to improve, the pass rush absolutely must improve. Belichick traded for Danny Shelton and signed Adrian Clayborn in the offseason to address the Patriots’ issues along the defensive line. The early returns in the preseason are encouraging, as both new acquisitions played well. Two players to monitor with this group are Trey Flowers and Derek Rivers. Flowers had a quiet preseason, and has dealt with an undisclosed injury, but has said he is good to go for Week 1. In a contract year, Flowers has every reason to play his best football, but hasn’t been heard from much in the preseason, on or off the field. Flowers is switching to left defensive end, with Clayborn only being able to play on the right side due to a condition called Erb’s Palsy, that affects his right arm’s mobility and function. If Flowers can pick up from where he left off, and Clayborn plays well, this unit will be greatly improved, but Flowers’ performance at a new position will be something to monitor. Derek Rivers, after tearing his ACL his rookie season in training camp, could provide added depth at the defensive end position. He has shown flashes in the preseason , and there is still hope that he can become a consistent contributor to this team. If he can get that knee back to full health, and become more consistent, he could really help this team’s pass rush.And don’t forget about Deatrich Wise. After a strong rookie campaign, Wise is poised to continue his strong momentum from his first year. He and Clayborn will likely split time at RDE, and a rotation there should allow them to stay rested and ready. This will be a strong combo for New England, with Clayborn and Wise at RDE.5. Can Jacob Hollister make the jump?Ever since the Aaron Hernandez scandal, Bill Belichick has been searching and searching for a move tight end to pair with Rob Gronkowski. He has had no success, but could the Patriots have something in Hollister? The second-year undrafted tight end from the University of Wyoming played sparingly last year, but has been hyped up this preseason. He has dealt with a hamstring injury that will make him a game-time decision this week, but Hollister has gotten a lot of work with Tom Brady one-on-one in practice, and appears to be making some headway to gaining status as a member of Brady’s circle of trusted pass-catchers. With Edelman suspended, having another dependable option for Brady to throw to would be very beneficial, but Hollister has to get healthy first.Week 6 Patriots vs Chiefs: Dont’a Hightower interception sets up a Sony Michel touchdown The highly anticipated prime time matchup between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs started with both offenses moving the football well. However, with the score at three all, it was the Patriots defense that made the first big play of the night:Defensive signal caller Dont’a Hightower disguised his coverage well and dropped into the underneath zone to intercept Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Hightower’s first career regular season interception set up the Patriots offense at the Kansas City 4-yard line – and the offense made the most out of the excellent field position:For the third straight game, first-round rookie Sony Michel found the end zone on the very first offensive play after Hightower’s interception. The score put the Patriots up 10-3, before the team allowed Kansas City to march for another field goal. Nevertheless, a good start for a New England team that plays solid complementary football at the moment.

In not even 90 minutes Womens Customized New England Patriots Jerseys , It will not be easy on the road against the Chicago Bears, though: not only is the team ranked in the top ten in scoring offense and scoring defense, it also meets a Patriots squad that will be without some important players as a look at the list of inactive players shows.Patriots inactivesFive of the players above have already been declared out prior to the official release of the inactives list: Marcus Cannon (concussion) was ruled out on Friday, Geneo Grissom (ankle), Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back) , Jacob Hollister (hamstring) and John Simon (shoulder) joined him earlier today. The biggest names on the list are, of course, Cannon and Gronkowski, who will be replaced in the lineup by veteran backups LaAdrian Waddle and Dwayne Allen, respectively.The list of inactives also includes healthy scratches Brian Schwenke and Keionta Davis but not some of the more noticeable players named on Friday’s final injury report: offensive playmakers Sony Michel New England Patriots T-Shirt , Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon are – as expected – active, as are defensive linemen Deatrich Wise Jr. and Malcom Brown. The latter of the two defenders returns after a one-game absence last week.Bears inactivesThe biggest news out of Chicago is the activity of star pass rusher Khalil Mack. The former Oakland Raider is dealing with an ankle injury and was listed as “questionable” on Friday. Later today, the New England Patriots play their fourth and final game of the season against an AFC South opponent. In order for the team to improve its record against the division to 3-1, both sides of the football need to play a disciplined game against a Tennessee Titans team that fields one of the best defenses in the NFL and an offense that may not sit atop the statistical leaderboards but has still helped win four games so far this season.Let’s find out what the Patriots have to do to beat them.Be disciplined in the front sevenTennessee has one of the NFL’s most balanced offensive attacks: led by running backs Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry as well and quarterback Marcus Mariota, the team has not shied away from turning to its ground game to get the offense going — and the Patriots need to be ready for it as well today. Being disciplined up front in terms of technique and gap integrity therefore has to be a key for New England: the team can neither allow Lewis and company to get to the perimeter nor to open up lanes for Mariota to exploit as a ball carrier. If that happens and the Titans have to turn primarily to their inconsistent passing game to generate yards New England Patriots Hats , the Patriots’ chances of winning should look good. Don’t be afraid to go for the home runEven though safety Kevin Byard is one of the better players in the NFL at his position, New England should not be afraid to challenge Tennessee deep — especially on the side of the field where Malcolm Butler is lining up. While Butler is not as bad a player this year as his statistics suggest, the Patriots knows his weaknesses as well as anybody and should use this knowledge to their advantage. Trying to get a physically imposing player like Josh Gordon in one-on-one situations against Butler should be a goal for the team, and one that could field results.Win in the red zoneTennessee’s offense is one of the least productive in the NFL when it comes to scoring points, but it has still found some success in the red zone this season. Meanwhile New England Patriots Hoodie , the team’s defense is arguably the best in the league at keeping teams from scoring touchdowns when backed up. Safe to say that the red area will therefore be a deciding factor of today’s game: if the Patriots offense can overcome its inconsistencies in this part of the field and the defense can continue following its bend-don’t-break principles, the team will have a successful day.

Chargers’ 2018 Schedule Prediction: 7-111/11 Week 10 @ Oakland RaidersIn just over one month’s time Joey Bosa Jersey , the Chargers will take on the Raiders again and I feel a bit more confident this time around than I did when I wrote about their first match-up.Within the last week, the Raiders traded away slot receiver Ryan Switzer to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for draft capital. Earlier in the preseason, they traded DL Jihad Ward in return for the former-Tar Heel.The most surprising part, other than a good slot receiver getting passed around like the stuffing at Thanksgiving dinner, is that he was traded for what seems to be the inability to beat out WR Griff Whalen for a starting position.What..?Whalen, the former Stanford Cardinal that the Chargers kicked the tires on before their WR depth became substantial. The receiver who only sniffed the field when it was absollutely necessary.Woof. This whole Gruden thing happening in Oakland just looks better and better every week.The Chargers sweep the Raiders in a game that will once again seem closer than it is and may be decided on how well they are able to stop the run. UDFA RB Chris Warren is my X-factor while looking like a hassle and a half to bring down. This makes me worry about just how great the potential is for Marshawn Lynch and him to tire out the Chargers’ defense if they are unable to stop the run. 2018 Record: 8-111/18 Week 11 Vs. Denver BroncosThe Broncos may have found the answer to their ground game woes in rookie running back Royce Freeman out of Oregon. Freeman has scored a touchdown in all three preseason games and looks like a much better back from the jump than Devontae Booker. Unfortunately, GM John Elway came out and admitted that Booker was still the Broncos’ starter, even after an abysmal performance by the former Ute.While the Denver defense still has the potential to give the Bolts fits, I’m riding a high of confidence after the shutout last season.The offense worries me a bit more after watching QB Case Keenum this preseason because you can visibly see his connections with the wide receivers growing before your eyes. Emmanuel Sanders looks rejuvenated and Demaryius Thomas has another competent quarterback to throw him the ball, once again.In the end, I believe the Bolts’ pass-rush will be the deciding factor as they will wreak havoc against the Broncos’ front five. Keenum isn’t the best when under pressure and you can expect him to get pretty flustered whenever he plays the Chargers.2018 Record: 9-111/25 Week 12 Vs. Arizona CardinalsThe game against the Cardinals starts the two-game stretch where the Chargers face a top-3 running back in the NFL. Just like when I was still attending the University of Iowa, I got to watch David Johnson shred the entire Hawkeye defense by himself like it was just another day at the office.In 2018, I may get stuck watching the same show, in different colors.Johnson is a dual-threat back in the truest sense. In 2016, he was on pace to surpass the 1,000-yard mark in both rushing and receiving yards until he suffered a leg injury in the season finale. After missing all of 2017 to a hand-injury, Johnson will have the freshest legs in the game.If the Chargers don’t find the their answer to the run defense woes, this could be a long, long night. Larry Legend is still in town and his impact will rise and fall depending on who is under center against the Bolts. My money is on rookie Josh Rosen, but you never know at this point in the year.The defense has some playmakers in All Pro CB Patrick Peterson and 2017 sack leader DE/OLB Chandler Jones. Gone is the Honey Badger but he was coincidentally replaced with former Charger safety, Tre Boston. A downgrade, in my opinion, but a good player nonetheless.With the recent injury to their starting center AQ Shipley, the already underwhelming offensive line will be forced to start rookie Mason Cole out of Michigan. I don’t know about you, but a rookie center and quarterback combination doesn’t really scream “good” or “safe bet”.This game also screams “trap” and it’s tough for me to give the team another victory. I just don’t see the Cardinals being able to beat the Chargers on the backs of Johnson and Fitzgerald, alone.It’s unlikely, but the Chargers win their eighth in a row.2018 Record: 10-112/2 Week 13 @ Pittsburgh SteelersI’m absolutely stoked for this game. Can you imagine the potential star-power that will be on tap? If both teams have phenomenal records and none of the stud players get hurt Authentic Austin Ekeler Jersey , just how much fun will this game be to watch?Philip Rivers v. Ben Roethlisberger.Melvin Gordon v. Le’Veon Bell.Keenan Allen v. Antonio Brown.It’s the fever dream of casual fans and fanatics alike who just want to see the best of the best play. But other than a contest just jam-packed with talent, this game may be a potential preview of this year’s AFC championship game.If it was any season prior to this one, I would have agreed that the Steelers offense is far and away the better unit. This year, however, I believe the scales are much more balanced. Each team has their star QB, RB, and WR, but what will inevitably make the difference is the supporting cast around them. TE Hunter Henry is gone and has been replaced by Virgil Green. The Steelers are sporting Vance McDonald who was a reliable contributor during his time with the 49ers.As for the team’s second, third, and fourth wide receivers, this one has gotta go to the Chargers by a slight margin.Tyrell Williams and Juju Smith-Schuster are both above-average secondary wide receivers in the NFL. Tyrell boasts a 1,000-yard season while Smith-Schuster just put up 917 yards in his rookie season. Both also ranked at the top for yards-after-catch among receivers, via Pro Football Focus.The team’s potential third wideouts, second-year Mike Williams and rookie James Washington, are both unproven in the regular season of the NFL. Williams’ rookie year was essentially a redshirt season after his injuries and Washington is obviously heading into his first year as a professional. Both were among the best wide receivers in the nation in college and make this match-up a wash for me.Travis Benjamin as the team’s fourth wideout wins it for the Bolts as he provides phenomenal value as a vertical threat. The Steelers are currently still sifting through their guys with the obvious choices being Justin Hunter or newly-acquired slot receiver Ryan Switzer.As for the defenses, it’s a run away for LA on paper. Cornerbacks are a sweep. Edge rushers closer but still no cigar. I’ll give the Steelers the win in the linebacker category based solely on the fact that the Chargers’ starting group could end up looking several different ways.After all of this, I cannot help but see the home-field advantage for the Steelers playing a massive role in the outcome of this game. Although the Chargers have been used to playing 16 away games, Heinz Field is its’ own beast.Consider this the inevitable blip in a season full of high expectations. I’m going Steelers.2018 Record: 10-2 Even stronger than usual and in the best of health, Arizona Cardinals guard Mike Iupati is mowing down everything in front of him this preseason."I'm just playing ball," the 6-foot-5, 331-pound left guard said after the team practiced in the heat Monday. "Taking that year off makes you appreciate football, made my body feel young again."A triceps injury in the opener wiped out the rest of the 2017 season for Iupati.In the offseason, as he entered the fourth year of a five-year, $40 million contract he signed with Arizona, Iupati agreed to a $3 million pay cut to come back for what under the new deal could be his final season in the desert. He will earn $5 million this year."I just figured it was better than going somewhere else to start new," he said. "I'm starting new here."And so far Iupati seems to love the physical, run-oriented offense installed by new coach Steve Wilks and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.Pro Football Focus gave Iupati a 97.2 rating for his 31 snaps in Arizona's two preseasons game. That made him the NFL's highest-rated player this preseason."The man is playing about as good as anyone I've seen play up front Youth Darius Philon Jersey ," quarterback Sam Bradford said. "This camp, just watching him play, it's been pretty impressive both in the run game and the pass game. He just seems to be kind of swallowing guys up out there."Left tackle D.J. Humphries sees Iupati at work up close. This is, Humphries reminds people, a player who has been to four Pro Bowls. But injuries have kept Humphries and Iupati from playing together much, and Humphries loves what he's seeing.While Iupati is a quiet guy who rarely says much, Humphries said he's seen the big guard explode with emotion on the field this preseason."I can look over and see that dude pumped about whoopin' somebody, seeing him beating his chest for the first time on the grass, with me beside him, it gives me chills," Humphries said. "It's a scary feeling to see that dude — as calm, cool and collected as he is (normally) — out of his mind on the field. The first time I've ever seen him like that."The first team's offensive line play probably has been the most impressive thing about the Cardinals in their first two preseason games. Newcomers Justin Pugh and Andre Smith are at right guard and right tackle, respectively. Starting center A.Q. Shipley went down with a season-ending knee injury before the first preseason game, but rookie Mason Cole has filled in well.Iupati calls the line "awesome.""We're doing good, just communicating with each other and having fun," he said.Wilks calls the offensive line the strength of the team."I think they've proven that the way they performed in the first two games, particularly the Ones, coming off the ball and creating a new line of scrimmage," he said. "I think they've accepted the challenge and they've taken a lot of pride in that."Iupati, 31, is entering his ninth NFL season.The first five were with San Francisco, where he was a first-round draft pick — the 17th selection overall — out of Idaho in 2010. He started 75 regular-season games and eight postseason contests for the 49ers before signing as a free agent with the Cardinals in 2015.He has said he wants to play in the league for 10 years and he's showing lately that he still can be an elite blocker.As usual, his reaction came in just a few words."I'm doing it for my family and my teammates," he said. "I'm just out there working to get better."Notes: General manager Steve Keim's five-week suspension by the team for a DUI arrest is up Tuesday. There was no word officially on whether he will be back. ... The Cardinals have Tuesday off, then practice each of the next three days. They play at Dallas on Sunday night.

With just days away from the NFL Draft a bunch of interesting storylines and rumors are brewing about who the Chargers might select come Thursday night. Will general manager Tom Telesco shock the world and snag the heir apparent to Philip Rivers? Or will Los Angeles beef up their front seven with a nose tackle?No matter which direction the Bolts choose to go on Draft night, the intrigue is growing by the hour. Los Angeles has a ton of promise and with a division that appears wide open on paper, a productive player in the first round might be the difference.Here are what the experts think will happen when the Chargers on the clock with the 17th overall pick.Dan Kadar ( LB Leighton Vander Esch (Boise State)Vander Esch is a premiere prospect at inside linebacker in the Draft. Although concerns have arisen about his health, he would slide nicely next to Denzel Perryman. Los Angeles needs help at linebacker and as the Draft inches closer Womens Mike Pouncey Jersey , it appears more pundits agree.Daniel Jeremiah ( S Derwin James (Florida State)The Chargers still have a massive hole at safety. Tre Boston is still a free agent and it appears Los Angeles is fine with playing the waiting game with the rest of the market. If in some wild scenario James is available when the Chargers are on the clock, it may be too hard for the team to pass up. Like Jeremiah said, James is a top-ten talent and would propel the secondary to become one of the best units on the roster.Eric Galko ( QB Josh Rosen (UCLA) In this mock the Chargers traded up to grab their next franchise quarterback. Of late, many believe Rosen will slip in the first round and maybe even out of the top ten altogether. Will the Chargers pull the trigger on a trade like this? Probably not, but the intrigue surrounding a quarterback will make the first round selection so much fun. Peter King ( OT Kolton Miller (UCLA)Offensive tackle is one of the biggest needs for the Bolts. Russell Okung proved to be a solid option at left tackle, but Joe Barksdale was banged up last season and the Chargers are due for an upgrade. Miller has appeared in a handful of mocks, but hasn’t been a popular enough pick to be considered a top option for most Chargers supporters.Tom Fornelli ( OT Connor Williams (Texas)Despite the weak tackle class, the Chargers may still take a chance to add one of the final pieces to their offense. They have the quarterback and the weapons, but Williams would be the final piece to a solid offensive line. Los Angeles was phenomenal in pass protection, but last in the league in rushing, Williams would bring attitude in the run game. Josh Norris ( QB Lamar Jackson (Louisville)The “Lamar Jackson Hive” of Chargers fans is strong. There are plenty of people who want Jackson to don the powder blues in 2018. Frankly, it would be a fun addition to the team. Although it won’t address a need, Los Angeles would be set up for future success. Jackson could learn from Philip Rivers and take a backseat for a year or two. They may have drastically different styles of play, Jackson may acquire Rivers’ knack for preparation and intensity. David McCracken ( DT Maurice Hurst (Michigan)The Los Angeles Chargers need to beef up their defensive line. Again, the duo of Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram is unmatched. However, the rest of the defensive line is subpar at best, Hurst would slide into the four-man defensive front extremely well. Hurst would help stop the run and take the pressure off of a thin linebacking corps.

NFL Draft Grades 2018:When one of the best players in the draft at a position of need tumbles all the way to the middle of the first round and your team gets its best case scenario Denzel Perryman Jersey , it is little surprise when the fans are happy. Chargers fans loved this pick and they voted for an ‘A’ grade in overwhelming numbers. 1,567 total votes were counted and 1,474 of them were ‘A’ grades.I assume those ‘F’ grade votes (all 16 of them) came from jealous fans of the Raiders, Broncos, or (assuming they were watching the draft even though they didn’t get to pick yesterday) Chiefs. Although, I suspect it was mostly fans of the Raiders and Chiefs given that Broncos fans are probably still flying high after Bradley Chubb fell to them at 5.Florida State defensive back Derwin James is your newest Los Angeles Charger and we could not be happier about it. The Chargers have now won three straight Authentic Melvin Gordon Jersey , and just gave the Browns a sound thrashing (which isn’t the given it used to be).And now things get tough, as they’re about to stay on the road until the week before Thanksgiving.Via Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America, the Chargers won’t play again in their home stadium in Carson, Calif. again until Nov. 18, the week before Thanksgiving.They’re actually staying in Ohio this week, to practice at Baldwin Wallace College before flying to London for a “home” game against the Titans Youth Mike Williams Jersey , followed by their bye week. Then they start November with road games against the Seahawks and Raiders before finally returning to their place.e going to be tested a lot in the next four to five weeks, starting with today,鈥?Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said after the win over the Browns, and before getting ready to travel.e studied it a lot. We decided to prepare here and go to London late Thursday because we think coaches can prepare better here, and players can rest better here. I don know that it has a lot to do with it, but the teams that go over later in the week have a better winning percentage , so wee going to play the odds.he Chargers are 3-2, but if you expand the scope a bit they’re on a bit of a roll. They’ve won 10 of their last 13 games, with two of the losses to the Chiefs. If they survive this world tour, they’ll be in good position to make a run at the playoffs when they get one of their top players back from injury (Joey Bosa).

Lohse gave up five hits in seven strong innings to lead the Brewers to a 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night. It was the Brewers first win since left fielder Ryan Braun was suspended Monday for the remainder of the 2013 season for violations of Major League Baseballs drug policy. "We really needed a little bit of good news after this week," Lohse said. "We have to focus on the job we have to do. This season has not turned out the way I or anyone on this team thought it would. But we have to focus on the next two months and go out and win as many games as we can." Lohse has been doing his part lately. He is 6-1 over his last 11 starts with a 2.51 ERA. The Brewers were 2-8 in Lohses first 10 starts and 8-3 in his last 11 starts. Lohse said he is feeling good on the mound and results have shown it. "I am just focusing on what I am doing well," he said. The other key Wednesday was all-star centre fielder Carlos Gomez, who had four hits and drove in two runs. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said it looks as if Gomez is breaking out of a recent slump in which he had one hit in his last 10 at-bats. "It looked like he was really on pitches tonight," Roenicke said. "When he is on his game like that, it is a big boost for the team." John Axford pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Jim Henderson pitched the ninth to record his 11th save in 14 opportunities. Sean OSullivan (0-2), making just his second start and third appearance of the season for the Padres, pitched 6 1-3 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits. He started in place of Jason Marquis, who is scheduled for Tommy John surgery. San Diego manager Bud Black said Lohse was just too tough on the Padres. "He did a good job on both sides of the plate," Black said. "Hes been pitching well. The last number of starts for him have been outstanding, and he just continued that tonight. We couldnt capitalize on any mistakes he left ouut over the plate. Cheap Air Max Discount. We battled him. We just couldnt break through." Nick Hundley hit Lohses first pitch of the third inning for his eighth home run of the season to give the Padres a 1-0 lead. It was his third home run in his last six games. Hundley hit a two-run home run in Tuesdays game. The Brewers came back to grab a 2-1 lead in the third inning. Rickie Weeks and Norichika Aoki led off with singles and Jonathan Lucroy walked. With one out, Gomez lined a double over the head of Padres centre fielder Will Venable to score Weeks and Aoki. The Brewers added a run in the seventh inning. Aoki was hit by a pitch and stole second base. He advanced to third on Gomezs single. Gomez tried to steal second and Padres Pitcher Dale Thayer first threw to third base. Chase Headley then threw to second to get Gomez, but the throw hit umpire Bob Davidson in the back and rolled into centre field. Aoki scored on what was ruled an error on Headley. Black said the Padres executed the play the way he wanted them to, except for the umpire getting hit with the throw. "Everybody did everything right," he said. "Unfortunately for us, Bob was in the way of a thrown ball. Would have been a close play, no doubt, but I wouldve liked to see how it wouldve ended up. Bob told me, obviously, that was the last thing he wanted to happen. He just didnt get out of the way of the ball."

CHICAGO -- Its down to the last couple days of July, and the Kansas City Royals have an equal amount of wins and losses. Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys . Its a small step, but its somewhere to start. Alex Gordon hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning and the Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 4-2 on Sunday for their sixth consecutive victory. "This is a lot of fun," Gordon said. "We have a lot of guys that are playing well and picking each other up and just a good team right now." Kansas City (51-51) matched its longest winning streak of the season and got back to .500 for the first time since it beat Cleveland 2-1 on June 17 to improve to 34-34. Its the best record for the Royals this late in the year since they finished the 2003 season with an 83-79 mark, according to STATS. "To get here was big," manager Ned Yost said.

"One hits fine with me as long as it wins the game," the All-Star outfielder said. Aaron Crow (7-3) tossed a scoreless inning to get the win and Greg Holland finished for his 27th save in 29 chances. Holland has converted each of his past 20 opportunities. The White Sox had a chance to win the game in the 10th, but Dyson threw out pinch runner Blake Tekotte at the plate to end the inning. Tekotte was trying to score from second on Alejandro De Azas sharp single to centre field. Adam Dunn homered for last-place Chicago, which closed out a 3-7 homestand with its ninth loss in 12 games overall. Paul Konerko also had an RBI single. The White Sox had three runs and 21 hits in the series sweep. "I think pitching-wise, our guys gave us every opportunity," manager Robin Ventura said. "We just didnt come up with much. Thats frustrating and all that stuff going with it. Just has to be better if youre going to win games." David Lough, who made a terrific catch in the ninth inning of Kansas Citys 1-0 victory on Saturday night, helped the Royals get off to a fast start in the series finale. He singled in Alcides Escobar with two out in the first, then walked and scored on Miguel Tejadas double in the fourth. Dunn responded in the sixth, driving a 1-1 pitch from Bruce Chen over the wall in centre to tie it at 2. It was Dunns 25th homer of the season and No. 431 for his career, tying Cal Ripken for 43rd on the all-time list. Dunn also helped set up Chicagos first run with a two-out walk in the first that moved Alex Rios into scoring position. Konerko followed with a run-scoring single into left field. Chen allowed three hits, struck out five and walked two in six innings. The crafty left-hander is 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in three starts since joining the rotation. "Its one of those things. You want to help the team in any way you can," said Chen, who is 4-0 with a 2.09 ERA in 22 appearances on the year, "and Im glad that I was able to help this team and we got the victory today." White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago struck out seven in 6 2-3 innings. He allowed five hits and walked four. "Yeah, its just been the story the whole year," Santiago said. "Try to keep us in the game and keep it close enough where we have a chance and for the most part thats what we did." NOTES: Kansas City is 7-1 in extra-inning games this season, including a 4-0 mark on the road. ... White Sox RHP Jake Peavy brought a couple of big suitcases into the clubhouse before the game. He is scheduled to start on Tuesday in Cleveland, but he also is one of the top pitchers on the market ahead of Wednesdays non-waiver trade deadline. "I dont think he wants to go. I dont want him to go," Ventura said. "But he has to be prepared. Thats part of where were at right now." ...

While Brandt Snedeker hit all the shots that led to his second PGA Tour title of the year and sixth of his career, the guy pulling the clubs for him was Scott Vail, a native of Oshawa, Ont. who now calls downtown Toronto home. Vail has been with Snedeker for all six of his victories but this was, perhaps, the sweetest one for the caddie. "It was funny," said Vail. "As Brandt was tapping out he said How does it feel to win your own national championship? So I had a giggle with him." Vail may not have swung a club, but Snedeker was full of praise for his bag carrier as the two made their way around a cool, windy Glen Abbey. Nowhere was his input more important than on the 12th hole, when Snedekers ball ended up over the green and in some deep cabbage with a log sitting inches from it. "He did a great job on 12 today," said Snedeker. "There was a crack in the log, and I didnt see it. It was really a wet, thick log. If we moved the log the way I was going to move it, it probably would have broken off and rolled down and hit the ball. He did a great job of catching me there and getting me thinking clearly." "I said You better put two hands on that," added Vail. "So we played a game of Operation, like we were kids." The partnership between the two started years ago on the Nationwide Tour and has continued for all of Snedekers PGA Tour tenure. Vail began his career carrying bags on PGA Tour Canada, working for, among others, Derek Gillespie. Vail and Snedeker have formed a strong relationship, and Vail knows when and where to step in and say something or call his boss off a shot. As things were getting somewhat crazy on the back nine, a CBS technician told Vail about Dustin Johnsons trriple bogey on the 17th hole, dropping him from a tie for the lead and giving Snedeker a two-shot cushion. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. But Vail knew to keep that to himself, giving his golfer just the right amount of information. "My caddie does a great job of letting me know how aggressive I need to be," Snedeker stated. "When he said just give yourself a birdie putt at it, I figured it was a pretty cushy lead. "He only tells me what I need to know." Just as the golfer is full of praise for the caddie, the caddie is in awe of the golfer. Vail has seen his man grow as a player, first turning into a bona fide PGA Tour player, then a winner and then ending the reputation he gained for not being able to close out tournaments when leading. "He just keeps getting better and better," said Vail. "He knows how to win with the lead. Before the Tour Championship last year, the naysayers were saying he couldnt hold a lead. I think hes proved to everybody that hes more than comfortable holding a lead. "Hes a fighter," added Vail. "If he gets knocked down hes going to get back up. Weve faced a lot of adversity during our tenure and he always gets back up. Hes got a lot of heart." The two will be together again on Monday at the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club, when Vail is named to the clubs wall of fame. As part of the festivities, theres a golf tournament that will raise some money for the local hospital. Vail may be able to help in that regard too. The traditional cut of the first place cheque in a tour event for a caddie is 10 per cent, meaning he will collect roughly $100,000. While the cash is important, the win itself may be sweeter, especially for a guy who, as a kid at that course, never dreamed about winning the Open. "Its just ironic that it happened," Vail said. "Its a pretty cool story I guess. It will be an enjoyable win." cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
