The BCB has said that Bangladeshs strength and conditioning coach Mario Villavarayan will not be joining the preliminary squads training camp along with the rest of the foreign coaching staff at the start of August. .Villavarayan was supposed to kick off training on July 20, but has cited personal reasons for his delayed return to Dhaka. The Bangladesh players will start the camp under trainer Iftekharul Islam.All the staff will be arriving in Dhaka towards the end of this month or at the start of August, BCB CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury told ESPNcricinfo. Mario [Villavarayan] has said that he has personal issues and he is expected to join soon.Following the July 1 Dhaka attack, Nizamuddin said that the BCB will provide additional security to BCBs foreign staff. We will provide the foreign staff with additional security in line with the government directive towards sensitive people and places, he said.Meanwhile, Brett Harrop, BCBs physiotherapist at the cricket development department, has resigned due to family reasons. . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one more time on Sunday. The Brooklyn Nets will likely sign restricted free-agent forward Donatas Motiejunas to an offer sheet as early as Friday, league sources told ESPN.The Nets have been discussing the move internally for some time and, according to one source, are comfortable with where the Lithuanian big man is medically after back issues scuttled the Houston Rockets trade of ?Motiejunas to Detroit in February.No deal with Motiejunas is expected to happen before Friday, sources said, with Brooklyn playing host to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.If the Nets indeed go through with their plans to sign Motiejunas, Houston would then have three days to match any offer.?Houston pulled its most recent offer to Motiejunas last Tuesday, when the sides couldnt come to terms on a deal before the Rockets self-imposed Nov. 22 deadline.The Nets have nearly $19 million in available salary-cap ?space to assemble an offer that will be unpalatable for Houston to match. Brooklyn, though, was foiled twice in restricted free agency over the summer, seeing its hefty offer sheets to Miamis Tyler Johnson (four years, $50 million) and Portlands Allen Crabbe (four years, $75 million) matched by those teams.Nov. 23 was the last day that players could be signed this season and remain eligible to be dealt on the leagues annual trade-deadline day, which falls on Feb. 23. ESPN reported in early November that the Rockets, as a result, picked that date as their own internal deadline to sign Motiejunas, fearing his value would decrease if they didnt have the ability to trade him. Sources told ESPN on Nov. 4 that the Rockets were offering a two-year deal starting in the $7 million range, but with only the first season fully guaranteed for the 7-foot, 223-pounder.ESPN reported last week that Motiejunas was surprised and upset that negotiations with the Rockets had dragged on so long. Motiejunas camp has been trying to drum up interest in his client from the handful of teams around the league that possess the cap space to present a representative offer sheet and appears to have found a willing suitor in Brooklyn.Motiejunas could have made himself an unrestricted free agent next summer had he been willing to play out this season on Houstons $4.4 million qualifying offer, but he let the qualifier expire Oct. 1, hopeful that a long-term deal would eventually materialize.The Rockets have been unwilling to guarantee more than the first year of a multiyear deal in a nod to the 26-year-olds injury history. Houston traded Motiejunas to Detroit in February, only for the Pistons to void the deal and send him back to the Rockets because of a failed physical stemming from Motiejunas back troubles.ESPN Staff Writer Calvin Watkins and The Undefeateds Marc ?J. Spears contributed to this report.

Its opening week in college basketball. Wade Boggs Jersey . But why wait till March to find out the answers to each conferences big questions? All week, well be examining the pressing issues in each of the Power 5 leagues. Up next, the Pac-12. Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. Former Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Artis Hicks denied telling an author that the team ran a bounty program involving coaches in 2008 and 09.I never told him any specifics. I never named names, Hicks told the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Sunday night, adding that no coach was ever involved in conversations about injuring players during his 11-year career spent with five different teams.Hicks original quotes were published by author Jeff Pearlman in a new book about Brett Favre titled, Gunslinger. In the book, Hicks was quoted as saying that coaches would start a pot and all the veterans put in an extra $100, $200, and if you hurt someone special, you get the money.The Vikings, former coach Brad Childress and some players who were on the team at that time all denied those allegations.The NFL declined comment on whether it would investigate the claims.Hicks told the Star Tribune that dinners or small pots of money were exchanged between players for injuring opponents -- often when a player felt like someone dove at his knees or tried to hurt him. But he insisted, Coaches didnt know about things like that. ... A lot of it happens within the locker room.Only thing I told him as far as specifics was I had been part of a meeting where players were amongst ourselves as part of a unit, Hicks told the Star Tribune. We kind of felt like the last time we played the team, they kind of did some dirty things to our running back or quarterback. When we played them again later in the year it was, Hey, when you get a chance to geet this guy, dinner is on me. Colby Rasmus Jersey. . That was as detailed as I got. Again, it was never any specifics on what team I was with or anything like that.When asked if that meeting took place when he was a member of the Vikings, Hicks said, It didnt.Hicks, who spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins, said he had no problems with Pearlman for writing what he did.[Pearlman] felt the need to interpret that how he wanted, and I have no problem with it, Hicks told the Star Tribune. Hes trying to sell books. I hope he sells as many as he can. Its not going to hurt me, its not going to hurt the Vikings, and its not going to hurt the NFL. This is seven years old, man. More power to him.The New Orleans Saints were dealt unprecedented punishments in 2012, including season-long suspensions for head coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, when the NFL found that the Saints ran a program that included incentive payments for opposing players being injured.Since that time, there have been other reports of players claiming they were involved in similar injury-incentive programs, most prominently from several former members of the Redskins when they played under Williams.However, the NFL said it found no evidence of wrongdoing following investigations into both the Redskins and the Buffalo Bills, where Williams previously coached.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- The Winnipeg Jets are preparing to welcome a nearly point-per-game player to their line-up and its not going to cost them a single draft pick. .Ordinarily, the addition of somebody of Bryan Littles ilk would require a nearly-blockbuster trade, but instead the Jets will merely activate him from injured reserve.Little, 29, played all of four shifts this season before going down with a lower-body injury during the season-opener against the Carolina Hurricanes on Oct. 13. He had been the teams No. 1 center since the Jets moved north from Atlanta in 2011, but a fractured vertebrae in his back late last season, which caused Little to miss another 25 games, enabled Mark Scheifele to move into that spot.Little practiced with the Jets Monday morning at the MTS Centre as they prepared to face the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. He pronounced himself fit to return to the line-up.If it was up to me, yes, he told the Winnipeg Free Press. I feel pretty good. It was kind of my plan today to see if everything went well today. I feel comfortable playing. I cant really test it much more other than if I get back into a game and see how it goes. As of now, I havent had any hiccups in the last couple of weeks.The Jets, who defeated the Nashville Predators 3-0 on Sunday, are hoping to continue making up ground during a three-game homestand, which concludes against NHL scoring leader Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday. Prior to Sunday, they had lost five consecutive road games.The Devils come to town in a similar predicament, having lost five out of six games, including two in a row, most recently a 4-3 shootout loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh.They are also hoping to soon welcome back a first-line player -- left winger Taylor Hall, who has been out since having arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Nov. 16. He was expected to miss three or four weeks but now the word is he could be back in the line-up before this road trip is done. The Devils travel to Chicago for a game against the Blackhawks on Thursday and to Nashville to play the Predators on Saturday.Hall practiced with the team at the MTS Centre on Monday, his first skate with his teammates since his injury, but isnt expected to play against the Jets.When Im ready to play, Ill play, he told The Record. You look at the timeline they gave me 12 days out of surgery 1/8Monday 3/8, and I was skating at a week. Im trying to build to get ready to play games here soon. I dont think Im rushing anything. Im not being pressured to play any quicker than I have to. d love to play at some point on the trip.The Devils currently sit in fifth place in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 10-6-5 for 25 points. The Jets are sixth place in the Central Division with a record of 10-12-2 for 22 points. . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. MIAMI -- It is getting to be too late for the Miami Marlins.The Marlins lost to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night, and Miamis chances of making the National League playoffs as a wild-card team decreased.Mind you, projections entering the week gave Miami a 0.7 percent chance at making the postseason. So it was already bleak for the Marlins. Now its worse.With 10 games to play, Miami (76-76) sits four games behind the three teams that share the two NL wild-card positions, the Cardinals, Giants and Mets. St. Louis, San Francisco and New York are all 80-72.The good news for the Marlins -- seemingly at least -- is that the Atlanta Braves (61-91) arrive on Thursday to start a four-game series.And while it is true that the Braves have been awful overall this season, Atlanta just swept the Mets in three games at New York. And, before that, the Braves took a series from the Nationals.Marlins manager Don Mattingly, though, said to can forget what just happened or what happened earlier in the season.That (Braves) series (with New York) is over, Mattingly said Wednesday. They have to come here and play. We have to play tomorrow night. Its going to be who plays better tomorrow.Momentum at this point is really just that day and your pitcher that night. What theyve been doing or what weve been doing, and weve been playing well, doesnt really matter.Its going to be Jose (Urena) tomorrow going out and keeping us in the game early and seeing if we can put some runs on the board and win a game.Still, Atlanta has given Miami fits all year. The Braves swept the Marlins at Miami in April and took two out of three from the Marlins in May.The teams split two- and four-game series in June and July. Miami finally got the better of the Braves, wwinning two of three at Atlanta earlier this month. However, Miami has yet to take a 2016 series from the Braves at Marlins Park.To accomplish the feat, the Marlins would love a solid start from Urena, who has been wildly inconsistent this season.Urena (4-7, 5.59 ERA) gave up seven runs in two innings in his most recent start, Saturday at Philadelphia. However, in his previous start, he went 8 2/3 innings and did not allow a run against the Los Angeles Dodgers.Perhaps Urena, 25, is tired since -- counting his minor league work -- he is at 124 innings this season. He finished at 131 innings last year.,Atlanta will start right-hander Josh Collmenter, who was acquired from the Chicago Cubs organization on Sept. 14. Collmenter (2-0, 4.61 ERA) beat the Washington Nationals in his Braves debut on Saturday, allowing two runs in five innings. Atlanta won the game 7-3.He began the season with the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 1-0 with a 4.84 ERA in 15 relief appearances before he was released in August.Collmenter-Urena is far from a marquee matchup, but it still should be an interesting battle because the Marlins are hanging on by their fingernails in the wild-card race while the Braves are improving.Atlanta is coming off a high point -- both literally and figuratively. Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte leaped at the wall to rob the Mets Yoenis Cespedes of a two-out, three-run walk-off homer in the ninth inning Wednesday, preserving a 4-3 win.I think this is the best feeling Ive had in a baseball game, Inciarte said. Robbing a home run in that situation, its really special. Really special feeling.

HELSINKI -- Finnish police have released two members of Cubas national mens volleyball team but are holding six others on suspicion of aggravated rape, an investigator said Monday. Dylan Larkin Jersey .Police will request that a regional court on Tuesday order the six men to be remanded in custody to continue the investigation before any possible charges, said Joni Lansipuro, the Central Finland Police Department officer in charge of the investigation.We have made considerable progress in our investigation and have various pieces of evidence and relevant factors that support our suspicions, Lansipuro said. We propose (to the court) that they be held in custody.The eight men were detained over the weekend in Tampere after local police on Saturday morning received a report that a woman had been raped at a hotel in the city, 170 kilometers (105 miles) north of the capital, Helsinki. The Cuban team was in the city participating in the Volleyball World League tournament in Tampere where they lost 3-1 against Finland without three of their players, who had been detained.Lansipuro said the Cuban team had been scheduled to leave the country on Monday morning, but it wasnt immediately clear if they had departed.The Cuban Volleyball Association acknowledged the arrests in a statement Monday night. It said the Finnish investigation was continuing, but added that early information implicates them in acts that are totally removed from discipline, the sense of honor and respect that govern our sport and society. The statement did not indicate whether the rest of the team had returned to Cuba.Police declined to give further information pending the outcome of the investigation, except to say that the alleged victim and suspects were adults.The international volleyball federation, FIVB, said its very concerned by the alleged serious misconduct of the Cuban national team and has been in close contact with all parties involved.The FIVB has absolute zero tolerance of any offence committed against another person by any players or officials at an FIVB event, the world body said in a statement to Finnish broadcaster YLE.The Cuban Volleyball Association acknowledged the arrests in a statement Monday night. It said the Finnish investigation was continuing, but added that early information implicates them in acts that are totally removed from discipline, the sense of honor and respect that govern our sport and society.

An undefeated run through the Big 12 earned the Oklahoma Sooners an invite to the 83rd Sugar Bowl.As for the Auburn Tigers, well, theyre off to New Orleans after the College Football Playoff committee decided the program was the best option out of a jumbled mess in the Southeastern Conference.The two teams will meet in the Superdome on Jan. 2.The No. 7 Sooners (10-2, 9-0 Big 12, No. 7 College Football Playoff) finished off a perfect trek through conference play on Saturday with a 38-20 victory over Oklahoma State. Oklahoma lost two of three to start the season, but ended the season on a nine-game winning streak.The Sugar Bowl is a step down for Oklahoma from last season, when the Sooners made the CFP semifinals before losing to Clemson. But coach Bob Stoops didnt expect any sort of letdown.No concerns, Stoops said. At the end of the day its a great bowl game and were playing an excellent football team. Weve just got to be in a position to play the best we can.No. 17 Auburn (8-4, 5-3 SEC, No. 14 CFP) emerged from a pile of options to be the second-highest ranked team in the SEC in the final CFP poll behind top-ranked Alabama. Florida and LSU were also candidates for the Sugar Bowl spot, but finished just behind the Tigers at No. 17 and No. 20, respectively.Auburns eager to prove the CFP committee got it right.Well definitely be motivated, Auburn coach Gus Malzhan said. Were playing one of the top teams in the country.The Oklahoma-Auburn matchup is a rare one: Its only the second time the two schools have faced each other. The Sooners beat the Tigers 40-22 in the 1972 Sugar Bowl.Some of Oklahomas players have played in the Sugar Bowl already: The Sooners beat Alabama 45-31 three years ago in New Orleans.The Sooners are led by quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has thrown for 3,669 yards, 38 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Running back Joe Mixon has run for 1,183 yards and eight touchdowns while top receiver Dede Westbrook has 1,465 yards receiving and 16 touchdowns. Gustav Nyquist Jersey. Youre talking about a big-time offense to go with a very good defense, Malzahn said. We have a lot of respect for them.Auburn is led by a running game that features Kamryn Pettway and Kerryon Johnson. The two have both had good moments this season and combined for nearly 2,000 yards rushing, but both have also battled injuries this season.Here are some things to watch in this years Sugar Bowl:SURGING SOONERS: Oklahoma had a rough start to the season, losing games against Houston and Ohio State during September. But the Sooners regrouped quickly thanks to a stellar offense that scored 34 points or more in all nine of its Big 12 games.SAGGING TIGERS: Auburn has had an up-and-down season. The Tigers lost two of three early, but then rallied with a six-game winning streak to jump back into contention in the SECs Western Division. Auburn couldnt capitalize on the momentum, losing to Georgia and Alabama during the final three weeks of the regular season.NEEDING WHITE: Auburn quarterback Sean Whites health (shoulder) was a concern during the final month of the regular season and the Tigers offense struggled whenever backups Jeremy Johnson or John Franklin III played. White didnt play against Alabama in the Iron Bowl but the Tigers hope hell be fully healthy for the Sugar Bowl. Malzahn said on Sunday he feels the team will be close to 100 percent for the matchup against Oklahoma.OKLAHOMAS DEFENSE: The Sooners offense gets most of the press, and rightfully so, but the defense has been pretty good over the last half of the season. Oklahoma held six of its last seven opponents under 28 points.---More AP college football: and .

Western was last ranked first in the country in October 2011. PARIS -- By the end of the week, Andy Murray could become the top-ranked player in the world for the first time in his career.Ever since he first reached No. 2 in the tennis rankings seven years ago, the 29-year-old Murray has been trying to catch the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The No. 1 ranking is finally within touching distance, and he will replace Djokovic at the top if he wins the Paris Masters and Djokovic fails to reach the final.Murray is trying not to think about it too much.Its not in my control ... Even if I win all of my matches this week, I still might not get there, Murray said Monday. Its in Novaks hands.I dont feel any differently now to how I did six, eight weeks ago. My goal wasnt to finish No. 1 at the end of this year, Murray said. There (was) a lot stronger chance of doing it in the early part of next year, which is what I (had) targeted -- rather than this week.Murray and Djokovic both have won seven titles this season -- a career-best for Murray.If he does reach the top, Murray would become the oldest first-time No. 1 since John Newcombe achieved it at the age of 30 in June 1974.I do deserve to be there, Murray said. (The) last four or five months I have played the best of my career.Murray, who lost to Djokovic in last years Paris Masters final, faces Fernando Verdasco in the second round. He leads the Spaniard 11-1 overall.Murray won the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday for his third straight tournament win while Djokovics stellar form has dipped since winning the French Open for the first time in June.The top-ranked Serb lost in the third round at Wimbledon to Sam Querrey and in the first round of the Olympics to Juan Martin del Potro.After that, Stan Wawrinka rallied to beat Djokovic in the U.S. Open final, and two weeks ago Djokovic lost in the Shanghai Masterss semifinals to Spanish player Roberto Bautista Agut. Jamie McGinn Jersey. Wimbledon was obviously a bit of a surprise, Murray said. Maybe one or two losses you wouldnt expect.But Murray smiled when viewing Djokovics slump from a different perspective.Hes been in the final in New York, won (the Rogers Cup) and (reached) the semis of Shanghai, he said. Hes doing all right.Wawrinka, who lost to Djokovic in the Paris Masters semifinals last year, is excited about the ongoing fight for No. 1.Im looking forward to see whats going to be the result of Andy and Novak here, and in London (at the ATP

CHASKA, Minn. . -- At first, I was going to write a column proposing 10 questions entering this weeks Ryder Cup.Then I thought about maybe turning it into 10 predictions instead.Like a golf fan with dual citizenship, I didnt know which way to lean.So I opted for both. Here are 10 questions AND predictions going into this weeks matches.1. Question: Lets start with an easy one: Who are the most important players for each team? Theres a reason why the U.S. team has adopted the slogan 12 Strong and not 1 Stronger than the Other 11. Everybodys points count the same this week. That said, there are a few guys who could spark some momentum a little bit more than their fellow teammates.Prediction: Hes no longer the best player on the U.S. team, and he might not play more than three matches, but if Phil Mickelson gets it going, his counterparts will feed off that. For the Europeans, its all about Rory McIlroy. Hes their compass; as Rory goes, so goes the team. Unless he completely stinks up the joint, expect five matches this week.2. Question: Related follow-up -- Who will be the best players for each team? Maybe these first two questions are the same thing, maybe there are some nuanced differences between them. Its my column; Ill opt for the latter.Prediction: Lets not overthink this on the U.S. side. Dustin Johnson has been the worlds best player this year and he was 3-0-0 the last time this event was held stateside. Easy call. And Id love to go contrarian for the Europeans, but McIlroy is fresh off a win, hes happy and -- uh-oh -- happy learned how to putt.3. Question: Which relative unknown will emerge as a breakout American star this week? Oh, I love the idea of breaking up the U.S. and Europe into two separate questions, so we could stretch this thing out to a total of 10. Thats some crafty column configuring right there.Prediction: There really arent any unknowns on the U.S. team. The two rookies -- Brooks Koepka and Ryan Moore -- have each played high-level golf on the PGA Tour for a while. That said, keep an eye on Moore, the last man in. Nothing tends to rattle him and hes been playing great golf lately.4. Question: Same question, for the Europeans. At least there are some options here. Darren Clarkes side comes in with six rookies, although thats never been the right term for them. Even though hes never played in a Ryder Cup before, its difficult to call Masters champion Danny Willett a rookie. These guys have all played big-event golf before, obviously.Prediction: Thomas Pieters seems like Nicolas Colsaerts 2.0 -- an improved version of the Belgian Bomber who posted nine birdies on Friday afternoon four years ago before running out of gas on the weekend. Expect him to win a few matches this week, possibly paired with a calming veteran influence. Honorable mention: Rafa Cabrera Bello.5. Question: Wait a minute -- why doesnt this thing start on Thursday instead of making us wait until Friday? Ive never understood this. As much as the Ryder Cup is about competition and country, its also all about the Benjamins. Starting on Thursday, even with just one session, would mean an extra day of television revenue, not to mention an extra day of stoking fan interest levels. As is, Thursday at the Ryder Cup is one of the most brutal days in golf. Lets get this thing moving already.Prediction: Itll happen. Someday.6. Question: Will the captains really make a difference this week? And if so, whos better? Ive finally seen the light. I used to compare Ryder Cup captains to first-base coaches: Basically, pat guys on the butt, point em in the right direction and hope you win. I changed my mind when Paul Azinger imparted strategic maneuvers to win in 2008, and my opinion was only reinforced two years ago, when Paul McGinley came prepared for every potential scenario.Prediction: Much like the matches themselves, captains often seem even until they start playing, then some weaknesses emerge. Davis Love III and Darren Clarke appear equally up to the task, though if you want to give a slight advantage, it might go to Love for having the experience from four years ago.7. Question: OK then, smart guy. Will the vice captains really make a difference? Just because I need to hit my word count in this piece, here are all the vice captains for each side: Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk, Steve Stricker, Tom Lehman and, yes, Bubba Watson for the U.S.; Padraig Harrington, Ian Poulter, Thomas Bjorn and Paul Lawrie for Europe.Prediction: Actually? Yeah, they will make a difference. Thats because each of these captains is using his assistants much like the president leans on his cabinet. Neither Love nor Clarke is ruling with an iron fist this week. In some ways, the American vice captains might even wield greater power, as Love seems inclined to listen to their decisions -- especially those of Tiger.8. Question: Which pre-tournament controversy will most affect the competition? Mickelson dredged up old memories by criticizing 2004 captain Hal Sutton for pairing him with Woods; he later apologized. Pete Willett, brother of Danny, wrote a column calling American fans a baying mob of imbeciles among other things; Danny later apologized on his behalf.Prediction: This is the kind of stuff that makes headlines when theres so much lead time before the event and no golf being played. Neither controversy should have much of an effect on the outcome, though dont be surprised if Willett -- apology or not -- hears more than his share of jeers from the home crowd, especially during afternoon matches when the gallery has, uh, partaken in the refreshments.9. Question: What will be the key stat this week? Conventional wisdom says putting wins these things. Conventional wisdom is also the kind of thing which we took for granted before analytics showed us what really mattered. Love and his vice captains have taken a deep dive into the numbers of the last few Ryder Cups and have spent the last few months crunching the numbers.Prediction: Sure, putting matters. Putting always matters. But keep a close eye on this one: Four years ago, the U.S. played the par-5 holes in a collective 52-28-94 and nearly -- maybe shouldve -- won. Two years ago, the team played these holes in 27-51-58 and got clobbered. On a long golf course (7,628 yards) with the traditional four par-5 layout, expect performance on these holes to be a great determining factor in the overall result.10. Question: Forget all that other stuff. Whos gonna win this thing? Youre excused if you skipped everything above and scrolled straight to here. This is what you want to know; this is what everyone wants to know. Can the U.S. team, after losing the past three Ryder Cups and six of the past seven, finally win again?Prediction: Playing on home soil, with a team ranked higher collectively and -- most importantly -- inspired by the spirit of Arnold Palmer, it feels like everything is set up for a U.S. victory. Ill put it this way: If they dont win this week, with all of those factors at play, it could be a long time before they do. But itll happen. After years of in-fighting, blame-deflecting and task-forcing, the U.S. will win this week ... finally. .

Verstappen claimed an impressive second last time out in Japan by holding off Hamilton -- though Mercedes initially lodged a complaint about his driving after the race, a protest that was eventually dropped.?Raikkonen says Verstappen has been doing a good job despite the criticism.Like Ive always said, you can have two different opinions as one guy is happy and another one is not, depending on who comes out on top, he said. I have nothing against him, hes a good driver and hes doing a good job, obviously certain things are a bit on the limit, but there are stewards in the races that will decide if its good or not.These things will always balance out in the long run.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - In this day and age, a manager will gladly take the pitching line Josh Johnson served up. Jazz Jerseys Outlet . Seven innings, two earned runs on three hits, two walks and six strikeouts. Only five base runners against and five three-up, three-down frames. "Thats what we look for out of him," said manager John Gibbons. "If he can do that every time he goes out there, weve got a shot. It was a lot like that game in San Francisco when he came back from his arm injury. He pitched a heck of a ballgame." Just one problem: the Blue Jays didnt score and in the process, wasted one of the best efforts Johnson has given the club in his injury-interrupted, disappointing first season in Toronto. In a 3-0 loss, it was the fourth inning which proved to be the difference. The game was scoreless. The Jays already had stranded four runners, two of them in scoring position, over the first three innings. Colby Rasmus led off with an opposite field double. Maicer Izturis followed with a first pitch single through the right side and suddenly Toronto had runners at the corners with nobody out. But, like with prior opportunities and similar to those that would come, the Jays offence couldnt produce. Rajai Davis hit a comebacker to Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez, who froze Rasmus at third and took the force out of Izturis at second. Davis promptly stole second base with J.P. Arencibia at the plate. Arencibia, however, struck out looking and Emilio Bonifacio flied out. Inning over, more runners stranded, another chance squandered. With one out in their half of the fourth, the Indians drew their first base runner when Johnson walked Asdrubal Cabrera. Jason Kipnis followed with Clevelands first hit of the night, a single up the middle. Two hits later, RBI singles by Nick Swisher and Michael Brantley, the Indians had a 2-0 lead and the momentum in the game. Clevelands only other chance to score came in the eighth when Drew Stubbs doubled off Steve Delabar. A sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly later, it was 3-0 Indians. It was a case of Cleveland doing a lot with a little and the Blue Jays doing nothing with more than enough. "We just couldnt get anything going tonight," said Gibbons. "Even in that last inning we had a couple of guys on but we couldnt string any or hit a ball in a gap or anything like that." There is Johnson, stuck on one win, called upon to pitch inside and to be more aggressive and to trust his stuff, admitting the lack of success is mentally taxing. It must be, considering he was a key piece of one of general manager Alex Anthopoulos offseason blockbusters and hes an impending free agent whose value is slipping. "Youve always got to stay positive," said Johnson. "Youve got to find a way to stay positive. Its tough at times but youve got to find a way. Youve got some good teammates here who definitely help you through it and always be positive and there for you to help you get through it." Johnson also has his manager, Gibbons, who rarely makes mound visits when hes not going to change the pitcher. Gibbons made an exception in that fourth inning, as Johnson was struggling. "Thats between us," said Gibbons, when asked his message for Johnson. "He said youve got this and thats pretty much it," said Johnson. "Maybe a little bit more than that but just believe in yourself, dont worry about it and go get em." Its easier said than done, as Johnson is finding out this season. Hell take his fourth attempt at a second victory in the Blue Jays final game before the All-Star break, on Sunday in Baltimore. The Orioles are the only team Johnsons beaten this season. ROTATING THE ROTATION Thanks to the off day Monday, manager John Gibbons is afforded the opportunity to juggle his starting rotation. R.A. Dickey will now pitch on Thursday afternoon against the Indians. Hell be on regular four days of rest. Mark Buehrle will be pushed back to Friday, the opener of a three-game series in Baltimore. Based on numbers, the move makes sense. In three starts against the Orioles this season, Dickey is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA. Buehrle, strangely, has yet to pitch against Baltimore this season despite the Jays and Orioles having hooked up for 10 games over three series. LAWRIE AT SECOND BASE Brett Lawrie, on the disabled list since May 29th with a left ankle sprain, arrived in Syracuse in time to be in the starting lineup for the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night. That Lawrie was promoted as a continuation of his rehab assignment is hardly surprising. That he started at second base caught observers attention and renewed speculation the club may be considering a move. Remember Lawrie, 23, played two rehab games at second base for Single-A Dunedin in April. At the time, Lawrie was recovering from a strained oblique suffered before the World Baseball Classic. The plug quickly was pulled on the experiment, and Lawrie was brought back to the big leagues, when Jose Reyes went down with an ankle injury on April 12. In 37 games this season, Lawrie is hitting .209/.268/.374 with five home runs and 14 RBI. Alec Burks Jersey .ca NFL Power Rankings, overtaking the Denver Broncos and remaining ahead of NFC competition San Francisco, Carolina and New Orleans. Karl Malone Jersey . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. . Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers.PHOENIX -- Arizona did it again. Not a walk-off home run this time. A game-ending base hit did just fine. The result was another excruciating loss for Baltimore in the desert. Aaron Hill singled with one out in the bottom of the 14th inning on Wednesday to give the Diamondbacks their third straight walk-off win over the Orioles, 5-4. "These last three days have been a lot of fun," Hill said. Not for the visitors. Baltimore led all three games entering the seventh. "It was a tough series," said Orioles starter Chris Tillman, thwarted in his bid for a 15th victory. "Theres nothing you can do about it now. Youve got to look forward to the next one at home." Hill forced extra innings with an RBI single in the ninth off Jim Johnson in the Orioles closers ninth blown save of the season and second in as many days. Bud Norris (8-10), who started and threw five innings in San Francisco on Sunday, came on in the 14th and walked two batters ahead of Hills single to take the loss. Heath Bell (4-1) threw an inning to get the victory. Hill followed Adam Eaton and Paul Goldschmidt as the Arizona last-inning stars. Eatons home run in the ninth gave Arizona the victory in the opener, then Goldschmidt homered in the ninth to tie it and hit another in the 11th to win it on Tuesday night. Hills game-winning single was the only hit in the five extra innings for the Diamondbacks, who finished the homestand 6-2. Baltimore went 4-4 in an eight-game trip to three NL West cities. Norris, the Orioles eighth pitcher, walked Parra and Martin Prado on four pitches apiece to start the 14th. He struck out Goldschmidt, and Hill joked about the reaction from the stands. "The crowd was like Oh, man," Hill said, "but hes done it enough this year. Its time for someone else, right?" Hills single just got through the infield as Gerardo Parra raced home with the winner. As was the case the previous two nights, the players doused the hero with water, dirt and who knows what else. "I dont understand the dirt bath thing, I really dont," Hill said. "The dirt, the rosin bag, the spit, whatever else comes at you, I dont know where that came from. But hey, if it means we win a ballgame, Ill take it every time." Norris refused to talk to reporters afterward. He had skipped his scheduled bullpen session Wednesday to be ready if he was needed should the game go extra innings after the 11-inning affair on Tuesday night. "We knew he was going to be able to throw a couple of innings for us," manager Buck Showalter said. "He throws more pitches on his work day, which would have been today, than he did in the game. Dante Exum Jersey. " Showalter refused to criticize Johnson, who leads the majors with 39 saves. "The worlds full of those guys who come in after the wars over and shoot the wounded. Im not one of those guys," he said. "Ill leave that to the guys who are outside the arena." Showalter got the inevitable question about sticking with Johnson as closer. "Am I going to sit Adam Jones because he had a rough day today?" he said. "I as a manager cant live in that world. Weve got a lot of pieces in the chain that have to work and every club does. And Ill be the first guy to make adjustments if they need to be made, but theres a lot of things that weve got to shore up besides that." The Orioles loaded the bases with one out in the 10th but Brad Ziegler induced Nate McLouth into a double-play grounder to second. Baltimore took a 4-2 lead into the seventh on Monday and a 3-0 lead after six on Tuesday. The Orioles were up 4-2 again when Tillman left the game entering the seventh. Arizona got a run in the seventh on Prados RBI single, then threatened but failed to score in the eighth. Parra, who tripled in a run in the second, doubled to left off Johnson to start the ninth. Prados bunt failed to advance the runner, then after a quick trip to the mound by manager Buck Showalter, Goldschmidt was walked intentionally. That brought up Hill, who singled sharply to left on the first pitch to tie it. Goldschmidt moved to third on the play but was stranded when Matt Davidson struck out and Tuffy Gosewisch grounded to short. All four Baltimore runs came with two outs against Patrick Corbin in the second, two of them on Manny Machados home run. Corbin failed for the fourth time in his bid for a 13th victory. He went seven innings, giving up four runs on nine hits with seven strikeouts and one walk. NOTES: When they recalled Campana, the Diamondbacks optioned LHP Tyler Skaggs to Triple-A Reno. Skaggs had been with the team for a couple of days as a long-inning relief option in his latest in a series of stints with the big league club. ...

Indias Kidambi Srikanth fought frayed nerves to put up a valiant show before going down to Chinese badminton superstar and world No. . 3 Lin Dan 6-21, 21-11, 18-21 in the mens singles quarterfinals in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday. The loss now leaves the burden of a medal finish for India in badminton on PV Sindhu, who will play her semi-final on Thursday.Coming into the encounter having not dropped a single game in the previous three matches, Srikanth looked nervous and overawed by the occasion. With unforced errors gnawing at his game, he fell behind 1-11 early in the first game. Playing a dominant game, Lin had the Indian undone with his drops, smashes and amazing retrievals. Even the smashes that Srikanth could manage, like the cross-court one at 6-20, sailed wide. Lin won the first game in 16 minutes.Nosing ahead 3-0 lead in the second, Srikanth, whose brief chat with coach Pullela Gopichand at the break seemed to have paid off, held on to his lead at 7-4. The world No. 11-ranked Indian was playing like a wholly different player, a departure from his flummoxed self in the first game. Lin, who slipped quite a few times during the second game, asked for the court to be swabbed again. A brilliant smash had a hapless Lin on all fours, as the Indian went ahead 16-9, scenting a decider. Soon enough Srikanth wrapped up the game 21-11 as Lin dropped a game only for the third time in as many Olympic appearances.The third game was a tense and close one, with Srikanth forcing Lin to scamper all over the court, drawing even at 7-7 before the Chinese dispatched a scorching smash to close in 11-13. Though Srikanth put up a brilliant effort to stay afloat, Lin overpowered him with his well-placed smashes to move into the semi-finals with a 21-18 win in the decider.Srikanth had been in stellar form at the Olympics, pulling off a win over world No. 5 Jan O Jorgensen in straight games in the pre-quarterfinals.Srikanth, making his first Olympic appearance, had lost to the two-time Olympic gold medallist and defending champion in two of the three occasions that they played each other before this. The Indians sole win over his childhood hero came in the final of the China Open Super Series Premier tournament two years ago.Srikanth later regretted making some crucial mistakes near the end of the match.In the second game, he said the plan was to not make simple mistakes like I made in the first game. About his comeback from the second game onwards, Srikanth said: I wanted to be a little more aggressive, thats the only strategy. He said he was happy with his performance in the match.About the improvement in his performance at the Olympics -- compared with how he had played before in 2016 -- Srikanth said he had not been unhappy with the way he was playing, just that he was not winning. He also credited the break he took before the Olympics for the gains. . Pirlo limped out of Sundays 1-0 win over Udinese after just 13 minutes.

Max Verstappen completed 78 overtakes during the 2016 F1 season, the most in a single year since the record was first recorded. .Verstappen was one of the stars of the season, winning his debut race for Red Bull in Spain after being promoted from Toro Rosso. He continued to improve as the season progressed and turned in a breathtaking performance during the wet Brazilian Grand Prix, where he charged from 14th to third in the final 12 laps.In a lengthy stat pack released on Monday, F1 tyre supplier Pirelli confirmed Verstappens tally is the most since 1983, the first year data is available. Verstappen achieved the feat despite an average starting position of sixth on the grid.It is worth noting that 2016 was a record season in length, with 21 races on the calendar.Other stand-out stats include Fernando Alonsos 41 places gained on the opening lap of races, while Sebastian Vettel was overtaken just once all season -- by Verstappen in Brazil. Lewis Hamilton claimed the most overtakes in a single race, making 18 passes during the Chinese Grand Prix after contact at Turn 1.Aided by Verstappen, Red Bull recorded the most overtakes during the season (61 by Ricciardo and 15 by Kvyat before his demotion).

NFL Nation reporters pick out the biggest strength and the biggest weakness for every team heading into the 2016 season.AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo BillsBiggest strength: Cornerbacks. The Bills have two of the NFLs best in Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby, giving coach Rex Ryan the lockdown confidence on the outside that he needs to run his blitz-heavy scheme effectively.Biggest weakness: Pass rush. In past years, this might have been their offensive line or quarterback, but now the Bills must prove they can get after passers after posting a mere 21 sacks last season. Jerry Hughes cant do it all himself. -- Mike RodakMiami DolphinsBiggest strength: Defensive line. Ndamukong Suh, Mario Williams and Cameron Wake combine for 12 career Pro Bowl appearances and they should be a force together this season.Biggest weakness: Cornerbacks. Veteran Byron Maxwell is the only proven commodity out of this group and he struggled last season in Philadelphia. -- James WalkerNew England PatriotsBiggest strength: Elite play at quarterback with Tom Brady and top-level coaching to go with it. When it comes to places to start when building a team, those are usually the first two on the list.Biggest weakness: Running back, where outside of Dion Lewis -- who is coming off a torn ACL from Nov. 7 -- there are a lot of question marks. -- Mike ReissNew York JetsBiggest strength: The defensive line has three blue-chip talents -- Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams. Each of the 300-pounders has double-digit sack potential.Biggest weakness: Lack of quick-strike ability on offense. The Jets have talent at the skill positions, but theres no true home run threat. Statistically, Ryan Fitzpatrick was one of the worst deep-ball passers in the league last season. -- Rich CiminiAFC NORTHBaltimore RavensBiggest strength: Special teams. The Ravens return a Pro Bowl punter in Sam Koch and the second-most accurate field goal kicker in NFL history in Justin Tucker. Baltimore also has the best punt return team over the past three seasons and blocked five kicks in 2015.Biggest weakness: Cornerbacks. Shareece Wright, who was re-signed to be a starter, has struggled with his technique in the first two preseason games, and nickelback Jerraud Powers has been a step slow in covering crossing patterns. This is a concern for a pass defense that allowed a franchise-worst 30 touchdown passes a year ago. -- Jamison HensleyCincinnati BengalsBiggest strength: Defensive line. The Bengals Pro Bowl lineup of Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins combined for 24.5 sacks last season. Those two next to Michael Johnson and Domata Peko provide a line that has been consistently good.Biggest weakness: Pass-catchers. Its hard to say any team with A.J. Green could have a weakness from the passing attack, but the Bengals top two tight ends are hurt, and they dont have many options at receiver behind Green, with Brandon LaFell also nursing an injury and rookie Tyler Boyd unproven at this point. -- Katherine TerrellCleveland BrownsBiggest strength: Tight end. Coming off a career season and contract extension, Gary Barnidge is a pros pro, a tremendous route runner and a guy with great hands. Barnidge gives the offense a big and dependable target, which conceivably should open the field for players such as Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman.Biggest weakness: Defensive front seven. There are no elite pass-rushers or any impact players. Teams will run on the Browns until February. -- Pat McManamonPittsburgh SteelersBiggest strength: Vertical passing game. Quarterback?Ben Roethlisberger?throws the deep ball with precision. Going for 300-plus yards in the air is now considered an average day because of Pittsburghs insistence on testing corners and safeties deep.Biggest weakness: Secondary. This unit faces the most questions, particularly the starting corner spot opposite William Gay. But the Steelers have invested in several draft picks to bolster this spot. -- Jeremy FowlerAFC SOUTHHouston TexansBiggest strength: Front seven. This group is led by three-time defensive player of the year J.J. Watt, nose tackle Vince Wilfork and inside linebacker Brian Cushing. The Texans ranked fifth in the NFL with 45 sacks last season, and with Jadeveon Clowney, who looks poised for a breakout year, that number could increase in 2016.Biggest weakness: An unproven offense. Aside from receiver DeAndre Hopkins and running back Lamar Miller, no other skill position players have produced at a high level before in the NFL. The pressure will be on quarterback Brock Osweiler and rookie receivers Will Fuller and Braxton Miller to produce right away. -- Sarah BarshopIndianapolis ColtsBiggest strength: Quarterback. The Colts have used Andrew Lucks overall talents to make the playoffs in three of the past four seasons. And theyll continue to ride Lucks talents this season.Biggest weakness: Offensive line and defense. The Colts have struggled in these areas for the past four years. Indianapolis inability to block well caused it to use five different quarterbacks last season. The Colts have finished 20th or worse on defense in three of Chuck Paganos four seasons as coach. -- Mike WellsJacksonville JaguarsBiggest strength: Playmakers. The Jaguars have a good supply of playmakers in wide receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns and tight end Julius Thomas, and they added running back Chris Ivory in free agency. If WR Marqise Lee continues to stay healthy and performs the way he did in the spring, the Jaguars offense could be one of the most potent in the NFL.Biggest weakness: Offensive line, especially on the left side. LT Luke Joeckel hasnt become the dominant player the Jags hoped for when they drafted him No. 2 overall in 2013, and he may end up at left guard. Kelvin Beachum is coming off a torn left ACL and his effectiveness is in question. QB Blake Bortles has been sacked 106 times in his first two seasons -- some of which were his own fault -- and the O-line has to do a better job of protecting him. -- Mike DiRoccoTennessee TitansBiggest strength: Running game. This should be an area of strength considering the Titans invested in two top backs -- DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry -- as well as a new center in Ben Jones and a new right tackle in Jack Conklin.Biggest weakness: Secondary. The defensive backs need to show they can be far better than last seasons group and make some plays on the ball. They can start by not playing so far off receivers, which coaches dont want so often. -- Paul KuharskyAFC WESTDenver BroncosBiggest strength: The Broncos have speed across the depth chart and it shows, particularly in their depth at edge rusher and cornerback. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has the flexibility to rotate players and vary his looks so that the end result is Denver can consistently affect opposing quarterbacks in a wide variety of down and distance situations.Biggest weakness: The Broncos dont know if its actually a weakness yet, so it might simply be the biggest question right now: There is a scenario in which Denver has two quarterbacks -- Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch -- who have never started a regular-season game. Siemian has played just one regular-season snap overall (a kneel-down last December). There are decisions still to be made, but the Broncos have already shown they are not deterred by the prospect of youth at quarterback. -- Jeff LegwoldKansas City ChiefsBiggest strength: Depth at running back. When Jamaal Charles is healthy, the Chiefs can go three deep like few teams in the NFL with Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West completing the trio. Ware and West combined to rush for more than 1,000 yards and score 11 touchdowns in Charles absence last season.Biggest weakness: Pass rush. The Chiefs went through training camp without either of their two top rushers, Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. With no indication that Houston will return any time soon, this could be a season-long problem. -- Adam TeicherOakland RaidersBiggest strength: Oaklands relative youth. Derek Carr, Amari Cooper and Khalil Mack have yet to turn 26 but they also have yet to experience a winning NFL season, which is something the Raiders have not done since 2002.Biggest weakness: Well, more youth. Indeed, the biggest strength for this purportedly up-and-coming team is also its greatest weakness. In Oakland this season, its youthful exuberance versus lack of grizzled experience, especially with the retirements of Charles Woodson and Justin Tuck. So who steps up? Carr and Mack believe it is up to them. -- Paul GutierrezSan Diego ChargersBiggest strength: Philip Rivers. The Chargers QB hasnt missed a start in a decade and needs a little over 1,500 passing yards to eclipse Dan Fouts as the franchises all-time passing leader.Biggest weakness: Run defense. The 288 rushing yards San Diego gave up to the Titans was the most allowed by any team in Week 1 of preseason play. However, with the starters playing most of the first half, San Diegos defense allowed just 63 rushing yards in the Week 2 preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. -- Eric D. WilliamsNFC EASTDallas CowboysBiggest strength: Offensive line. The Cowboys have built their team through the offensive line with Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, Lael Collins and Doug Free. They signed Frederick to a six-year extension through 2023. They have Smith signed through 2023. They hope to sign Martin to a long-term deal next summer. There isnt a team in the NFL that doesnt envy the Cowboys line.Biggest weakness: Pass rush. Dallas hasnt been able to build through the draft on the defensive line as well as the O-line. DeMarcus Lawrence (second round, 2014) led the Cowboys in sacks last season with eight but will miss the first four games of 2016 because of a suspension. Randy Gregory (second round, 2015) is on the reserve/did not report list and is in a treatment facility. He is looking at a longer suspension than four games. Among the defensive linemen eligible to play Week 1, tackle Tyrone Crawford has the most sacks with eight. The Cowboys will have to make do with what they have up front this season. -- Todd ArcherNew York GiantsBiggest strength: Passing offense. Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr., more specifically. The Giants are built around these two players, and without either, they are done. Mannings experience and pre-snap reads help them work around their offensive line deficiencies. Beckham draws the attention of multiple defenders. Hes one of the most dangerous weapons in the league, as evidenced by his 25 touchdown receptions the past two years.Biggest weakness: Right side of the offensive line. Right tackle Marshall Newhouse is a backup. Right guard John Jerry is an average starter. Their combined experience makes the right side of the Giants line vulnerable. Its a good thing the Giants have Manning and Beckham to occasionally mask this weakness. -- Jordan RaananPhiladelphia EaglesBiggest strength: Defensive line. Fletcher Cox and Vinny Curry lead a front that should do plenty of damage in Jim Schwartzs attack 4-3 scheme. With Connor Barwin, Brandon Graham and Bennie Logan also in the mix, this looks to be the most potent unit on the team.Biggest weakness: Wide receiver. To this point, no player has grabbed a leading role alongside Jordan Matthews. While there is talent in the room, from?Nelson Agholor to the newly acquired Dorial Green-Beckham, questions persist as to whether the Eagles have enough on the outside to give the offense the type of production it needs. -- Tim McManusWashington RedskinsBiggest strength: The passing game. That starts with the receiving talent -- DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Jamison Crowder and tight end Jordan Reed. The Redskins are able to create matchup issues because of this talent. They have speed (Jackson), toughness (Garcon), quickness (Reed) and shiftiness (Crowder). And theyre good enough that first-round pick Josh Doctson, still out with Achilles tendinitis, isnt even missed. But the team also features an offensive line that protects well and a quarterback in Kirk Cousins who understands where to go with the ball. The Redskins will be more aggressive on certain downs (first) with passing the ball this season. Their play-action game could be scary on this down, with the addition of tight end Vernon Davis.Biggest weakness: The run defense. The Redskins have to prove theyre better than last season when they ranked 31st in the NFL, allowing 4.80 yards per carry. Last season they struggled to get off blocks up front -- especially in nickel packages -- and therefore struggled to make plays. Washingtons secondary should be improved, but the front must do its part on early downs. There are questions about the pass rush, but the team can be put in better situations with stronger run defense, leading to more third-and-long situations. -- John KeimNFC NORTHChicago BearsBiggest strength: Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and his staff. Chicago did plenty of work to upgrade the defense in the offseason, but Fangios coaching style is what ties it all together. The Bears are fortunate to have such an experienced and respected coordinator to oversee the rebuild on defense.Biggest weakness: Lack of overall roster depth. The Bears are a couple more key injuries (offensive line, cornerback, tight end, wide receiver) away from being in serious trouble in the NFC North. -- Jeff DickersonDetroit LionsBiggest strength: Defensive front. Having a defensive front that can rotate and initiate attack has been a priority for new defensive coordinator Teryl Austin because it helps out the rest of the scheme. This years line has a star in pass rushing end Ezekiel Ansah, a former All-Pro in Haloti Ngata and a couple of emerging players in end Devin Taylor and tackle Tyrunn Walker. This might be Detroits deepest defensive line in years and an obvious strength.Biggest weakness: Offensive line. While Riley Reiff (RT) and Larry Warford (RG) have looked good, the Lions have questions at center with Travis Swanson,?and at left guard with Laken Tomlinson. And the left tackle, Taylor Decker, is a rookie who will have some issues as he learns. This is a weakness for the Lions and could cause some major problems if they cant protect Matthew Stafford long enough to make correct reads or open up holes for Ameer Abdullah. -- Michael RothsteinGreen Bay PackersBiggest strength: The Packers biggest strength is their winning experience, culture and internal expectations. Theyre one of only two teams (the Patriots are the other) to make the playoffs each of the past seven years, and young players quickly learn from the veterans what is expected around Green Bay.Biggest weakness: If theres a weakness, its on the defensive line, where inexperience dominates. Going into Week 1, the only defensive linemen available who have played in an NFL regular-season game are Mike Daniels and Letroy Guion. -- Rob DemovskyMinnesota VikingsBiggest strength: The Vikings defense has become the identity of the team, and its also their biggest strength heading into 2016. Coach Mike Zimmers double-A gap blitz package has helped turn the Vikings into one of the leagues best pass rushing defenses, and the group should disrupt quarterbacks again this season.Biggest weakness: The Vikings biggest weakness also involves a pass rush -- namely, their inability to stop one from affecting Teddy Bridgewater. No quarterback in the league was pressured more often last season, and the Vikings spent considerable resources trying to fix their offensive line before 2016. -- Ben Goessling(Editors note: The information above was published prior to Bridgewaters injury on Tuesday at practice).NFC SOUTHAtlanta FalconsBiggest strength: Julio Jones. Arguably the leagues most dominant receiver coming off a season in which he fell just 129 yards shy of an NFL-record 2,000 receiving yards. And Jones is always striving to be better.Biggest weakness: The pass rush. The Falcons had a league-low 19 sacks last season, but they hope the addition of veteran Dwight Freeney will improve that number dramatically. Plus, much is expected from former eighth overall pick Vic Beasley Jr.?in Year 2. -- Vaughn McClureCarolina PanthersBiggest strength: Quarterback Cam Newton. The threat the NFL MVP creates in the run and pass game keeps defensive coordinators up at night. Add No. 1 receiver Kelvin Benjamin back into the mix with the rest of the starters returning, and Newton will be even more dangerous.Biggest weakness: Secondary. I easily could have said the defense was the strength since it has ranked in the top 10 each of the past four seasons. But since the weakness is a secondary that likely will include two rookie starters, it seemed like a conflict. But from what Ive seen of the corners thus far the weakness doesnt appear terribly weak. -- David NewtonNew Orleans SaintsBiggest strength: Passing attack. For the 11th straight year, the Saints biggest strength is their passing attack. QB Drew Brees has led the NFL in passing yards for four of the past five seasons -- and the Saints might be even more dynamic after adding rookie WR Michael Thomas and veteran TE Coby Fleener to complement rising star receiver Brandin Cooks.Biggest weakness: Defense. The defense is coming off a historically bad season in which it shattered the NFL record for TD passes allowed (45). The D cant help but be better -- and it has been very good for most of the preseason. But the pass rush remains a huge question mark, especially after injuries to young linemen Hauoli Kikaha and Sheldon Rankins. -- Mike TriplettTampa Bay BuccaneersBiggest strength: Running game. The Bucs will continue to be a run-first offense. Doug Martin is a tough inside and outside runner, while Charles Sims gives them great flexibility as a runner in the short passing game and downfield. An honorable mention on the strength meter is the Bucs have a lot more depth along the defensive line this season.Biggest weakness:?Kicking game. Roberto Aguayo has missed three kicks in two preseason games and is now struggling in practice. In the third preseason game against the Browns, Aguayo made three field goals, including a 48-yarder, and he made all three extra points. Does that mean the kicking woes are officially behind him? Well find out soon enough. -- Jenna LaineNFC WESTArizona CardinalsBiggest strength: Offensive continuity. The Cardinals return every playmaker from a year ago, meaning everyone who caught a pass from Carson Palmer and everyone who scored an offensive touchdown in 2015 are back.Biggest weakness: Uncertainty at starting right cornerback. It would have been Justin Bethels job had he not fractured his foot and required offseason surgery. While he was on the mend, rookie cornerback Brandon Williams won the starting job for now with an impressive OTAs, minicamp and start to training camp. Bethel, who just recently returned to practice, further hurt his case by missing the first three weeks of training camp after suffering a setback a few weeks before camp began. -- Josh WeinfussLos Angeles RamsBiggest strength: Running game. The Rams ground attack is anchored by the boundless ability of star tailback Todd Gurley, who finished third in rushing yards as a rookie despite having to wait until Week 4 to receive a sizable workload. Benny Cunningham, Malcolm Brown and Aaron Green have also impressed throughout training camp, giving the Rams plenty of depth in the backfield despite the bizarre absence of Tre Mason.Biggest weakness: The passing game. The Rams finished last in passing yards, passing touchdowns and QBR last season, and their hopes for a turnaround in that department will fall largely on four rookies -- quarterback Jared Goff, receiver Pharoh Cooper, and tight ends Tyler Higbee and Temarrick Hemingway. -- Alden GonzalezSan Francisco 49ersBiggest strength: Secondary. There might not be a true superstar in the bunch, but theres no shortage of capable players back there. Antoine Bethea provides the steady veteran presence at safety with Eric Reid and Jaquiski Tartt offering a lot of upside. And at cornerback, Tramaine Brock remains underrated and surrounded by an eclectic mix of skills in?Jimmie Ward, Rashard Robinson, Will Redmond, Chris Davis, Keith Reaser and others. The 49ers figure to have some tough decisions to make here when setting the 53-man roster, which is a good thing.Biggest weakness: Quarterback. Until the Niners find a good resolution, its hard to pinpoint anything other than QB. Yes, the receiver corps could use some help, but the choice between Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick as the starting quarterback still doesnt inspire much confidence. Coach Chip Kellys offense has made stars of lesser quarterbacks in the past so there is hope, but its clear an upgrade would provide the offense a much higher ceiling. -- Nick WagonerSeattle SeahawksBiggest strength: The secondary. The Seahawks return cornerback Richard Sherman, along with safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Jeremy Lane and DeShawn Shead are versatile players capable of playing either right cornerback or nickel. This is a deep and talented group that will once again make life difficult for opposing quarterbacks.Biggest weakness: The offensive line. No surprise here. The Seahawks are spending less money on their offensive line than any other team in the NFL. They will have at least three new starters, and Justin Britt, who played left guard last season, is making the switch to center. The interior of the line -- with Mark Glowinski, Britt and Germain Ifedi -- has looked good throughout camp. But the tackle spots, where Bradley Sowell, Garry Gilliam and JMarcus Webb are competing for playing time, remains a serious question mark. -- Sheil Kapadia Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Cheap Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '

Laquon Treadwell Jersey .C. -- Todd Fiddler scored a hat trick, including the overtime goal, as the Prince George Cougars survived an 8-7 win against the Kamloops Blazers in Western Hockey League play Sunday. Pat Elflein Jersey . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler. . Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Notre Dame will count this as progress after a week of upheaval and adjustments for a beleaguered defense. They might have been only leprechaun-sized steps forward, but the Fighting Irish will take it.Notre Dame tightened up its tackling and held Syracuse to seven points in the second half, and DeShone Kizer made up for most of the Irishs ills with one of the best passing games in school history.Kizer threw for a career-best 471 yards and the Fighting Irish snapped a two-game losing streak by defeating Syracuse 50-33 Saturday.In the first game since coach Brian Kelly fired coordinator Brian VanGorder, the Irish (2-3) allowed more than 30 points for the fourth time this season and 489 yards to Syracuses up-tempo spread offense.I wasnt crazy about going against this offense. I much rather have been going against something a little bit different because of their tempo and how they spread you out and with all the freshman DBs that (we) play. Thats not always the greatest matchup, Kelly said. But I felt like the morale was really good on Wednesday and thats what I was looking to get back. The morale.The tackling on punt coverage still needs work. Syracuses Brisly Estime had a 74-yard return late in the first half that setup a touchdown and left Kelly fuming on the sideline. Estime added a 38-yard return.Kizer made it all OK for Notre Dame at MetLife Stadium.He connected on three touchdown passes -- two to Equanimeous St. Brown -- that covered at least 54 yards each and ran for a score. Kizer hit a rough patch at end of the first half when he took a 17-yard sack that knocked the Irish out of field goal range and threw an interception.Kelly said he told Kizer at halftime to stop trying to force big plays.When we went back out, relaxed up, took his words and ran with it, said Kizer, who threw for more yards in a victory than any quarterback in Notre Dame history.Eric Dungey passed for 363 yards and two touchdowns and ran for three scores for Syracuse (2-3).THE TAKEAWAYSyracuse: The Orange defense has already been shredded by Lamar Jackson and Louisville and now Kizer and Notre Dame. An in-season fix seems unlikely. The middle of the field always seems to be open against the Orange secondary. Mike Hughes Jersey. .That is a very, very young defense, first-year Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. You have to give them time to grow up.FYI: Clemson and Deshaun Watson play the Orange on Nov. 5.Notre Dame: Kelly elevated Greg Hudson from analyst to coordinator and got more involved in the defense this week. Kelly kept his pledge to play more defensive players and make tweaks. The Irish mixed in some 3-4 alignments and their defensive backs changed techniques to better guard deep routes. Cornerback Luke Cole was moved to nickelback, lining up inside instead of out.There is still work to be done. The secondary, at times playing four freshmen, was porous and the front got little pressure. Positives: The Orange ran for only 3.4 yards per carry and the Irish did a solid job of tackling after the catch. Syracuse had 266 yards in the last three quarters.We need to continue to improve on tackling, defensive lineman Isaac Rochell said. I would say we did better, but we still left a lot out there.ONE FOR THE NEW GUYThe players picked Hudson to lead the singing of the alma mater after the win. They did it acapella since the band didnt make the trip.He put a lot of power in the position coaches hands and he put a lot of power in our hands as player and said, `Lets just come together as a family, safety Drue Tranquill said.TOUCHDOWN PER MINUTEThe first five minutes produced five touchdowns, one for each possession. Plus, Notre Dame had its second blocked PAT returned for a 2-point defensive conversion this season. The Irish did it against Texas, too. Jarron Jones got the block again and this time Cole picked up the bouncing ball and scored.Add it all up and it was 23-13 Irish with 10:06 left in the first quarter.They have a dynamic offense and when they come out its a big splash, Babers said.UP NEXTNotre Dame: The Fighting Irish make their first trip to North Carolina State.Syracuse: The Orange play at Wake Forest.---Follow Ralph D.

John Saunders first sat down with us to host The Sports Reporters in the fall of 2001. Wholesale Timberwolves Jerseys . The great Dick Schaap had been hosting the show for the 10 years or so before that. But Dick had just undergone hip surgery that went tragically wrong, none of us knowing at the time that he would never come out of the hospital.I knew full well about Johns body of work at ESPN all the way back to 1986, about his talent and versatility, his friendship with Jim Valvano, the tireless work John had done for The V Foundation for Cancer Research as a founding board member. But I was about to learn, starting with that first Sunday and then across all the Sundays, about all the good in him, all the humor and intelligence and immense decency. Most of all, I would learn about his gift of friendship.If you have ever watched The Sports Reporters, you know that we have long been having the kind of conversations about sports that they now have about politics all over the television dial on Sunday mornings, with Mitch Albom and Bob Ryan and Bill Rhoden, with Jemele Hill and Howard Bryant and Israel Gutierrez and all our other panelists.And what I knew by September 2001, after all my Sundays with Schaap, was how easy he made hosting the show look. What no one knew at the time was whether John would even want to be the full-time host, be part of the conversation on a permanent basis, be working with grown-ups so often acting like great, big kids. Or people talking sports at the end of the bar.But John was great from the start.He was tremendous and generous, allowing the rest of us to look good -- sometimes no small feat, believe me. But he really was that good at this kind of television. Best of all, people liked John Saunders. Somehow he had the gift that the very best broadcasters have, in that the people who watched him felt as if he were their friend, too. He made them feel like they were part of our conversation.I go through airports, John said, and people are always telling me the same thing, that sometimes theyre talking right along with us.Later I would tell him that, because of his grace and charm and ability to keep the whole thing under control, he was like Sidney Poitier in To Sir, With Love, bringing order to the kids in the back of the classroom.After the first show, I thought to myself, What in the world did I get myself into? John said once, laughing.My dear friend John Saunders died suddenly on Wednesday at the age of 61. He was a husband to Wanda and a father to two daughters. His brother Bernie, his best friend, was a hockey player, just as John was. We used to joke that John was another guy who came down out of Canada and didnt just take up one good job in television -- it was as if he wanted to take up all of them. He was a brilliant studio host, he could do play-by-play and he could somehow navigate, with his usual grace, all the housekeeping of the championship ceremonies after the last game of the college football season.He made it all look easy, Mike Breen, the voice of the NBA on ESPN and ABC, said on Wednesday morning. I used to marvel at the way he made all his jobs look that easy, even though those of us in the business know they werent.John had all the best stories about Valvano, and not just the funny ones, but about all the times, at the end of Valvanos long, terrible season battling cancer, when he would hold Valvano in his arms as a way of stopping the chills, even in the hours before Jimmy stood up and gave one of the most moving speeches in the history of sports, his Dont give up, dont ever give up speech at the ESPYS.Seeing how weak he was, I still dont know how he gave that speech, John would always tell me. I dont even know how he was able to stay standing. That was about his heart.Johns heart understood Vs. John had a ton of heart himself. He was an ex-hockey player, and he underwent so many surgeries because of his hockey career. He also suffered from diabetes, and there were some Sunday mornings when we would all see how weak he was when he showed up in our green room, his hands shaking, drinking orange juice, just trying to feel well enough to do the show. But he always did. And he would, because of his great heart, make it look easy again.He had a terrible fall one Saturday when he was hosting his college football shows on ABC. Another time there was a car accident, one John was lucky to survive. Of course, he came back from the accident and came back from the fall and, before long, was back in his chair on Sunday morning.There was a Sunday morning when he wasnt feeling particularly well, so right before he started talking at the top of the show, I leaned over and tapped him on the knee. He got through the show, of course. But it became a tradition with us, or a superstition. I did it every Sunday after that, all the way to our last show together a couple of weeks ago. That day he was telling me again how people were always asking why Lupica was hitting him every Sunday just as the show started.John laughed, again, and said, I tell them that your hitting me on one of my bad knees was just your way of showing how much you love me.There was no way to properly express, or explain, the love that I felt for John Saunders, who loved Wanda and his girls; who loved that he had lived long enough to see Barack Obama become president of the United States; who loved hockey, and his work, and the life his work had given him once he got to this country, permanently, from Canada. And you should know how much he loved doing his parting shots on Sunday; they were beautifully written, passionate when they had to be, funny when they had to be. But always smart.We have had two permanent hosts on The Sports Reporters: Mr. Schaap and Mr. Saunders. Ive had the uncommon good fortune to sit with both of them more than anybody in the history of the show. It should have been a hard thing for John to follow Dick. It became one more thing that he made look extraordinarily easy. In another time in sports, often the highest praise for professionalism was to say this: It was like watching Henry Aaron hit. Sitting next to John Saunders was like that. It was exactly like that.He is survived by his family, and his friends, and by this network, and by his business. John made his living with words. So many of us do. This is my own way, with memory and profound sadness, of saying one word I never expected to say this soon, not to the big man on my right for all those Sunday mornings: Goodbye.

It was a measure of redemption for Italy after a loss to Spain, also in a shootout, in the semifinals. "The main thing tonight was our character. We showed fantastic character. We never gave up," Italy coach Cesare Prandelli said. This shootout capped an entertaining match at the Arena Fonte Nova, where Alessandro Diamanti scored one goal and set up another for Italy and Edinson Cavani equalized twice for Uruguay. Italy defender Davide Astori opened the scoring in the 24th minute after Diamantis free kick rattled the post and Cavani equalized for Uruguay in the 58th with an angled shot. Diamanti restored Italys lead in the 73rd with another free kick that went in directly but not to be outdone Cavani drew Uruguay level again five minutes later with an equally splendid free kick of his own. Uruguay has now lost seven of eight bronze-medal matches at the World Cup, Copa America and Confederations Cup, including a loss to Germany at the 2010 World Cup. This defeat was surprising, considering that Uruguay appeared to be the fresher squad entering the game. "I told my players before the match, Its Italy, boys, so watch out," Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez said. "You cant just go by what you read in the newspapers. Even if they were tired they played a great match. They controlled the ball possession in first half and they made us suffer." For Italy it marked another step forward after finishing runner-up to Spain at last years European Championship. "We still have a long way to go but were on the right road," Prandelli said. In the shootout, the 35-year-old Buffon set the tone by stopping the first shot in the shootout from Diego Forlan, then also saved from Martin Caceres before smothering Walter Garganos effort to end the game. "Today would have been tough if we hadnt had this character," Buffon said. "We showed what were worth down to the end. It would have been upsetting to not win because playing this match two days after the game vs. Spain was very difficult. But we went out with the right spirit." Alberto Aquilani, Stephan El Shaarawy and Emanuele Giaccherini converted for Italy while Mattia De Sciglios shot was blocked bby Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. "Buffon is a great champion. He plays with a kids enthusiasm," Prandelli said. "He was upset the other night because he wasnt able to save a penalty. And he told the squad this morning that if it goes to penalties today, Dont worry Ill take care of it." Italy was without usual starters Mario Balotelli, Andrea Pirlo and a handful of others and ended with 10 men after Riccardo Montolivo picked up his second yellow card in the 110th minute for a foul on Luis Suarez. Uruguay was at full strength, featuring virtually the same lineup from its 2-1 semifinal loss to Brazil. With an added day of rest, Uruguay had its usual strike trio of Forlan, Suarez and Cavani in place. Still, for the first 90 minutes it was a balanced match featuring numerous opportunities for both sides. With Leonardo Bonucci on the bench after missing the key shot in the shootout loss to Spain, Astori saw his first action in the tournament and he quickly took advantage. After hitting the post, Diamantis free kick deflected off the back of Muslera and Astori was waiting for an easy tap in. However, there were doubts over whether the ball had already gone in when Astori touched it. FIFA first awarded the goal to Diamanti then gave it to Astori at halftime -- making it his first goal for Italy, in his fifth appearance. While Italy appeared content to head into the changing room with a one-goal lead, Uruguay came out energized in the second half and Cavani slotted a shot past outstretched Buffon after being set up by Gargano. Diamantis goal, also his first for Italy, came with a curling free kick from 28 metres (yards) over Uruguays wall and into the right corner beyond the reach of diving goalkeeper Fernando Muslera. The lead didnt last long, though, as Cavani then produced a shot over Italys wall that dipped down in under the crossbar with Buffon unable to stop it despite getting his finger tips on it. The two goals gave Cavani 17 in 54 appearances for Uruguay and they also may have boosted his price on the transfer market, as there is speculation he could lead Napoli after leading Italys Serie A with 29 goals last season. In extra time, Uruguay dominated but could not find the target with a series of shots from beyond the area while Italy appeared exhausted. Fortunately for the Italians, Buffon was still alert and made the decisive saves.
