FIFA presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein has accused Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa of failing to protect players. Adidas Stan Smith Mens Nz . Sheikh Salman is a member of the Bahrain royal family and has attracted opposition from human rights organisations due to the regimes role in the suppression of the countrys pro-democracy demonstrations in 2011, which saw some footballers imprisoned and allegedly tortured. Prince Ali of Jordan has claimed that Sheikh Salman shouldnt be running for FIFAs presidency because of the poor human right records in Bahrain. He has denied any involvement but Prince Ali told a news conference in Geneva: The simple, basic fact of the matter is that person did not protect or stick up for his players at that time. Sheikh Salman has insisted he has never played a role in Bahrains government and played no part in the detainment or mistreatment of any individuals.But his candidacy for the presidency is now the subject of a legal complaint by a pro-democracy group from Bahrain.All the evidence suggests that Sheikh Salman was involved in the government crackdown on free expression and human rights, said Husain Abdulla, executive director of Americans for Democracy & Human Rights in Bahrain.This raises serious concerns about his ability to protect the athletes that would be under his care as president of FIFA. Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa insists he played no role in Bahrains government Prince Alis comments about Sheikh Salman will intensify the rivalry ahead of the election of Sepp Blatters successor on February 26. Three other candidates, UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino, Frances Jerome Champagne and Tokyo Sexwale of South Africa are also standing.Prince Ali insisted he would ensure that FIFA underwent the proper reforms if elected, promising full co-operation with the US and Swiss attorney generals over their investigations into corruption.He added: This election will determine whether a small group of powerful individuals will hold FIFA hostage. FIFA Presidential candidate Prince Ali claims Sepp Blatter is still pulling strings behind the scenes at footballs governing body. Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Prince Ali said there were candidates in the race who refused to criticise former president Sepp Blatter.There are candidates who not only are not criticising him, but are speaking in his name. He has done a lot for football, but there is much more that could have been done, he said.I have a difference in terms of style, leadership, culture and in terms of how the organisation is run - it is too secretive, a lot of things have been allowed to play out and my biggest criticism is that he as a president did not take responsibility.

LOS ANGELES -- Clayton Kershaw offered to pitch on short rest again in Game 5 of the NL Championship Series for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but was turned down in favor of starting Game 6 on Saturday against the Cubs in Chicago.The series was tied 2-all going into Thursday nights game at Dodger Stadium, where struggling rookie Kenta Maeda took the mound for Los Angeles against Jon Lester.My stance is always the same, Kershaw said. I always tell them Ill do whatever they want. I told them Id pitch today if they wanted me to and pitch Game 6 if they wanted me to.The left-hander earned the victory in Game 2 at Wrigley Field, allowing two hits over seven scoreless innings while striking out six and walking one. Hes prepared to face boisterous Cubs fans again.The Cubs were 57-24 at home this season, their most wins at Wrigley in franchise history.Obviously, the fans are pretty excited about their team this year and rightfully so, Kershaw said. Theyve been waiting a long time for them to win. Hopefully we can either prolong it one more day or kind of clinch it in Game 6.Manager Dave Roberts said after Chicagos 10-2 win on Wednesday that he had ruled Kershaw out for Game 5 because it wasnt an elimination game.The accumulation of his usage over the last ten days plays a factor in our decision, Roberts said. Stan Smith Shoes Nz. .Kershaw is 2-0 with a 3.72 ERA in three starts and one relief appearance this postseason. Overall, the three-time Cy Young Award winner is 4-6 with a 4.39 ERA in 17 career playoff appearances.When he takes the mound Saturday, it will be on an extra days rest.Its kind of nice, he said. Havent had that in a while, so its good. Should be ready to go.Kershaw will oppose Kyle Hendricks, whose 2.13 ERA was tops in the majors this season. The right-hander allowed a solo homer in 5 1/3 innings of Game 2, his longest career postseason start. The Cubs lost 1-0.Kershaw called Hendricks kind of like the Greg Maddux of this generation.With his ability to sink the ball, cut the ball, and put him in spots where hitters are enticed to swing at it, but you cant put the barrel on it, Kershaw said. Hes really good at mixing speeds, changing it up. Hes a tough guy to go against, for sure.The Dodgers relied heavily on Kershaw to advance out of the NL Division Series against Washington.He picked up his first career save in the decisive Game 5 by retiring the final two batters in the ninth. In Game 4, he struck out 11. ' ' '

PHILADELPHIA -- Next to all of that St. Asics Runners Sale Ireland . Louis power, Mike Leakes single mightve looked puny.But it scored two runs and those helped, too.Leake pitched seven strong innings and contributed at the plate, and the Cardinals homered four times Sunday to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-0.Jedd Gyorko, Stephen Piscotty, Brandon Moss and Jeremy Hazelbaker went deep.Its not the only way we can score runs but its our main way, Moss said. Weve got a lot of guys in the lineup that can do a lot of damage. Its nice to have guys in the lineup who can change a game like that.The Cardinals had hit multiple home runs in nine straight games, tying a major league record, before failing to connect twice Saturday night in a 4-2 loss. Manager Mike Matheny was happy to see the bats get going again.We needed that to continue to watch these guys stay in a good rhythm, he said.Jhonny Peralta added three hits as the Cardinals finished a 6-3 road trip. They remained 1 1/2 games ahead of Miami for the final wild-card spot in the National League.The Cardinals got six extra-base hits to set a club record of 14 straight games with at least three extra-base hits.Leake (9-9) gave up seven hits and struck out eight. Philadelphia had homered in 14 straight games before getting blanked by Leake and two relievers.He needed that, we needed that, Matheny said. It was a great outing for him. Youre seeing some strange swings because the ball was moving a lot for him today, and I thought he used his changeup well. And the breaking ball was there for strikes when he wanted it.Vince Velasquez (8-6) fell to 0-4 with a 6.23 ERA in his last seven starts.He wasnt locating his secondary pitches, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. Hes going to be real good at one point. Hes got to keep working on it.Moss hit his 23rd homer and Leake added his single later in the fourth for a 4-0 lead.Piscotty connected in the fifth, the eighth home run Velasquez has allowed in three games.Im trying to figure it out, Velasquez said. I cant give a solid answer because I dont know what it is.Velasquez struck out 16 in a game earlier this season, but big league hitters have caught on to his fastball.I didnt have electric stuff early and next thing you know everything goes south when you dont have your secondary pitches, he said. Im not figuring it out and havent found that turning point yet.In the eighth, Gyorko hit his 20th homer and Hazelbaker had a pinch-hit drive.FOULS HIT FANSA day after a young girl was taken to the hospital when she was struck by a foul ball behind the Cardinals dugout, a young woman was hit in the face by Leakes foul in the sixth. She held an ice pack as she was helped to the concourse from her seat about 10 rows behind the dugout.Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis, who hit the foul that injured the fan Saturday night, said before the game that the team should extend the netting from behind home plate all the way to left field.The fans give you the money, so you should protect them, right? Galvis said. Were worried about speeding up the game. Why dont you put up a net and protect all the fans?FORE!Asked how he was going to fix things, Velasquez said he was going to take some swings -- with his clubs.Im going to play a round of golf and take my mind off baseball, he said. I think a round of golf is going to solve it.IN A PINCHThe Cardinals tied a big league record with their 14th pinch-hit homer of the season.

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke is breaking in a new quarterback. The Blue Devils offense still should look familiar.Redshirt freshman Daniel Jones makes his debut with the Blue Devils on Saturday night when they open the season against crosstown opponent North Carolina Central.Jones is the first freshman quarterback to start an opener at Duke since 1997, and just the fourth since 1951.Its a misnomer to think you have to be the guy in charge or win the game at quarterback, coach David Cutcliffe said. You dont. You just have to be more committed to your job than anyone else, first. Thats the role a quarterback leader has to take. Hes assuming that role rather easily.Jones took most of the first-team snaps during preseason camp while Thomas Sirk -- Dukes leading rusher and passer in 2015 -- worked his way back after tearing an Achilles tendon in a conditioning workout in February.Sirk reinjured the tendon during practice last week, finally giving the Blue Devils an answer -- though not the one they wanted -- to the will-he-or-wont-he question.Dukes hopes for a fifth straight bowl game rest with Jones, a redshirt freshman from Charlotte and a late addition to their 2015 recruiting class who has some of the same run-or-pass skills that Sirk has.Its the same system, so everyone in the quarterback room can do both, Jones said. Thats part of what (the coaches) want here, someone who has the ability to do both.The goal is to get him comfortable playing at this level against an opponent the Blue Devils historically have had no trouble beating: Duke has won all four meetings, all since 2009, by no fewer than 35 points apiece.N.C. Central won its last seven games of last season and claimed a share of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for the second straight year, but missed out on reaching the CCelebration Bowl -- the new postseason game that matches the champions of the two highest-profile HBCU conferences. Asics Ireland Outlet. Some of these guys played with some of those young men (at Duke) over the course of their career, Central coach Jerry Mack said. Theyve got a chance to see these guys on television. ... Its a rivalry within a rivalry, so to speak, because the guys know one another.---Some things to know about the N.C. Central-Duke opener:- HAPPY RETURNS: Duke S DeVon Edwards enters his senior season with six career kickoff returns for touchdowns, one shy of the ACC and NCAA record. He probably wont get many chances this week because North Carolina Central might not kick off very often -- Duke has shut out the Eagles in both of their last two meetings.- THE OPENER: Duke has won four straight openers and is trying for five in a row for the first time since 1984-88. The Blue Devils have won the last four -- against Florida International, North Carolina Central, Elon and Tulane -- by a combined 180-46. Theyre 6-2 in openers under Cutcliffe.- UNFAZED EAGLES: N.C. Central probably wont be awestruck by facing the Blue Devils, since so many of the Eagles players took part in last years matchup. The year before, North Carolina Central opened at East Carolina. You have to grow up really fast, said Central QB Malcolm Bell, whose first career game came at Duke in 2013. They threw me in the fire. I just had to get adjusted quick, and after that, I was pretty good.- NEW DIGS: The game also marks the debut of the latest set of improvements to Wallace Wade Stadium, with a five-story, 90,000-square-foot tower of luxury suites the centerpiece of the project.

DETROIT -- Detroits tight win over Philadelphia left both coaches with reasons to look on the bright side. Wholesale Sneakers For Sale .For Jim Caldwell and the Lions, the victory stopped a three-game losing streak that threatened to derail the entire season. The Eagles, on the other hand, came in unbeaten, and even in defeat, they showed their mettle by shutting down Detroit for most of the second half.We couldve folded the tents and gave up, but the sideline was very energetic, Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson said. The guys understood that we were really beating ourselves at that time and they rallied and got ourselves back into this football game.The Eagles were eventually done in by two late turnovers and lost 24-23 on Sunday. Detroits Matt Prater kicked the winning field goal from 29 yards with 1:28 remaining, and the Lions rebounded from an ugly loss at Chicago last weekend.We have a lot of work to do, so weve got to go back to work, weve got to see if we can do it again, Caldwell said. This isnt one of those things where you look at it and its a defining moment. Theres no shortcuts.The Lions (2-3) scored touchdowns on all three of their first-half possessions and led 21-10 after two quarters. Then their offense did almost nothing after halftime as Philadelphia (3-1) rallied.After the Eagles went ahead 24-23, Philadelphia was one first down away from putting the game away, but Ryan Mathews fumbled on a third-down carry near midfield, and the Lions finally broke through with a big play on offense. Golden Tates 27-yard, catch-and-run from Matthew Stafford put Detroit in position for an easy field goal.Then Eagles rookie Carson Wentz threw the first interception of his young career, and the Lions held on.Philadelphia plays at Washington next weekend, and Detroit has a chance to build on this victory when it hosts Los Angeles.Here are a few things we learned from Sundays game:LIONS FIGHT BACKDetroit lost seven of its first eight games last season, including a couple lopsided defeats against Arizona and Kansas City. After the loss to the Bears, the Lions looked as if they were in danger of repeating that type of swoon in 2016, but they played well enough to win against Philadelphia.CALM CARSONAside from the late interception, Wentz was impressive, going 25 of 33 for 238 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles wiped out a double-digit deficit in the second half on the road, and that should give them confidence going forward.BRIEF LULLPhiladelphia hadnt allowed more than 14 points in any of its first three games. Then Detroit scored 21 in the first half.The Eagles bounced back in the second half, holding Detroit to only 45 more yards of offense.DISCIPLINEPhiladelphia cant be at all pleased with the penalty disparity in this game. The Eagles were flagged 14 times for 111 yards, while Detroit had only two penalties for 18 yards.Fletcher Cox was called for unnecessary roughness on a play in which Staffords helmet came off in the second quarter. That negated a third-down sack and enabled the Lions to score a touchdown when they would otherwise have likely settled for a field goal attempt.TATES IMPACTTate has been overshadowed this season by newly acquired receiver Marvin Jones, but he made a crucial contribution Sunday with his catch on the winning drive. The Lions also lined him up in the backfield some. He had three carries for 6 yards and three catches for 39.I needed that, this team needed that, Tate said. It was good to be found and make a play at the end to help us win.---AP NFL website: and Wholesale Sneakers Canada .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. Wholesale Sneakers Online . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh caught a scoring pass, and No. . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. CALGARY, Alberta -- Dougie Hamilton wasnt going to change his approach after being held without a goal through Calgarys first eight games. His patience paid off Friday night.Hamilton scored his first two goals of the season and added an assist to lead the Flames to a 5-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators for their third straight win.For me, I have to get pucks on net. Sometimes they go in, sometimes they dont, you just have to keep shooting, said Hamilton, who entered the game with 22 shots, second on the team.Hamilton broke a 2-2 tie halfway through the second when, from the sideboards, he spun and whipped a shot from a bad angle over Chris Driedgers shoulder.It was the second goal on five shots to beat the rookie goaltender, who entered the game with a 2-1 lead. He took over to begin the second after Andrew Hammond left with a lower-body injury.There was definitely a little bit of nerves early, said Driedger, who finished with just 11 stops on 15 shots in his third NHL appearance. A tough game to stay into with not a lot of shots, but theres no excuses.Sam Bennett, Sean Monahan and Michael Frolik also scored for Calgary. Johnny Gaudreau and former Senator Alex Chiasson each had two assists.Brian Elliott stopped 31 shots and has started each game during the Flames winning streak.Hes a veteran guy and he knows how to manage the ebbs and flow, Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said. Hes a worker, hes a grinder, and he stays with it and he got rewarded tonight. After those two bounces, he played really good for us.After a rocky first three starts in a Flames uniform in which he gave up 14 goals on 87 shots, Elliott has been much sharper his last three starts while yielding just five goals on 88 shots.At the start of the year we didnt really know whaat kind of team we were and how to play effectively, Elliott said. Cheap Shoes Websites. Now guys are really buying into what we need to do.Erik Karlsson and Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa.(Driedger) gave us a chance. They just scored on the chances that they had, Karlsson said. They scored from the corner, they hit the boards and it bounced. Thats the way its going to be sometimes.Bennett tied the game 2-2 just 1:25 into the second on a setup from Chiasson. He has goals in three consecutive games and has six points during a four-game point streak.The story of the first period was Ottawas 30th-ranked power play, which looked anything like that.Trailing 1-0, the Senators needed just 4 seconds on their first man-advantage for Karlsson to tie the game. Two minutes later, Ottawa went back to the extra man and converted again, with Turris shot eluding Elliott, who was screened by Zack Smith.Game notes Senators starting goalie Craig Anderson, coming off a shutout in Vancouver on Tuesday, was granted a leave from the team to attend to a personal matter. ... Driedger, who played three seasons of junior hockey for the Calgary Hitmen (WHL), appeared in his third NHL game -- all in relief. ... Calgary first-round pick Matthew Tkachuk played in his seventh game, creeping closer to the point where the Flames need to make a decision on whether to send him back to London of the OHL. If he plays in a 10th game, the first year of his entry-level contract will kick-in.UP NEXTSenators: At Edmonton on Sunday night before returning home for three games in five days.Flames: Host Washington on Sunday night before heading out on a four-game trip.

Case Keenum was right to not worry about the Broncos drafting a quarterback in round one.With Joe Flacco and his $18.5 million base salary arriving in Denver Youth Javorius Allen Jersey , the Broncos won’t need Keenum and his $18 million base salary. So the question becomes where will Keenum go?Trading him would result in a $3 million cap charge. Cutting him would put the Broncos on the hook for $7 million in guaranteed money, which presumably is subject to offset.Here’s an intriguing potential destination: The Giants. Look at what Keenum did in Minnesota with Pat Shurmur as his offensive coordinator. With the New York offensive line not good enough to provide extended protection to a classic pocket quarterback, the line is good enough for Keenum, who has the agility and quickness to move laterally and buy time until someone springs open.Other teams to watch include the Dolphins, Jaguars, and Washington.Regardless of where Keenum lands, he’s now in play for yet another new team in 2019. And plenty of Vikings fans may start wondering if there’s maybe a way to get him back to Minnesota. While two weeks makes for a small sample size, some quarterbacks have flourished early and others have looked flustered to start off the season. Who has surprised? Who has disappointed? Who has recovered? Surprise performersJonathan Dyer-USA TODAY SportsRyan FitzpatrickAt the start of the year, many in Tampa Bay lamented the position Jameis Winston’s suspension placed the team in. The hope was that Fitzpatrick could simply float the franchise until Winston’s return, understanding the veteran backup would likely struggle. Instead, Fitzpatrick has completed 78.7 percent of his passes, thrown eight touchdowns to just one interception and has a 151.5 passer rating, which is 56.2 points higher than the career-high rating he achieve in 2014 with the Houston Texans. With his seventh NFL team, Fitzpatrick has propelled the Buccaneers offense to new, unexpected heights against formidable foes in the New Orleans Saints and the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles. He faces a drama-filled Steelers squad on Monday Night Football, where he will look to continue his Cinderella story. Patrick MahomesChiefs fans have been waiting patiently for the Mahomes era to begin, after Kansas City drafted him out of Texas Tech with the 10th overall pick in 2017. Few could have foreseen how successful he would be this early on his career, as he has emerged as one of the way too early front runners for league MVP. Through two weeks, he has a staggering 143.3 passer rating, zero interceptions and 10 touchdowns, torching the Chargers and Steelers defenses. In Week 3, Mahomes will arrive for the home opener at Arrowhead Stadium in front of a famously loud home crowd, where he will look to shred the 49ers defense, which is ranked 23rd through their first two games. Blake BortlesAs the third pick in the 2014 draft, Jacksonville’s quarterback is no stranger to criticism. Even after taking the Jaguars to the AFC Championship game last season, few expected he would have the kind of outing he produced in the Week 2 rematch against the Patriots. Often labeled as a ‘game manager’ quarterback, Bortles posted a 111 passer rating, completed 64.4 of his passes and threw four touchdowns. His performance last Sunday was a drastic improvement from the season opener, where finished the day with a 67.2 passer rating and had a 1:1 touchdown to interception ratio in a win over the Giants. He heads to Nashville in Week 3, where he will look to build on his rapport with sophomore receiver Keelan Cole, who burst onto the scene against New England with 116 receiving yards and a score. Disappointing startsCharles LeClaire-USA TODAY SportsBen RoethlisbergerThe Steelers will enter their Monday night game as the only AFC North team without a victory, as Cleveland secured their first win since December 2016 on Thursday. This is certainly unfamiliar territory for a team that is annually an odds favorite for the Super Bowl. Back in August, the Steelers were listed at 10-1 along with the Eagles, Rams and Vikings behind the Patriots at 6-1 favorites to win Super Bowl LIII. As of September 18 Stitched Kenneth Dixon Jersey , Pittsburgh is +1600 according to Odds Shark, with the Jaguars, Chiefs and Packers leaping ahead. While Big Ben rebounded in a lost shoot out with Mahomes in Week 2, he threw a shocking three interceptions against the Browns and had a passer rating of just 60.5 in the season opener. He faces another high flying offense in Fitzpatrick’s Buccaneers this week. Steelers fans will hope he can produce a little of his own magic and that Antonio Brown reaches the end zone. Otherwise, a desperate team in a historically physical rivalry will await the Ravens for their prime time matchup in Week 4 at Heinz Field. Sam BradfordThe Arizona Cardinals have been comically ineffective in their first two contests, and Sam Bradford’s latest attempt to become an NFL success is off to an abysmal start. With a lengthy injury history, Bradford has never been able to validate his first overall selection in the 2010 draft. The Cardinals have picked up just 19 first downs, while opponents have 54. Arizona is converting on just 20 percent of third downs, and Bradford is averaging a mere 3.98 yards per pass attempt with no touchdowns on the year. The Cardinals were outscored by the Redskins and Rams 58-6, after being shut out in Los Angeles. With Khalil Mack and the Bears coming to University of Phoenix Stadium, there is certainly no rest for the weary in Week 3. Eli ManningAny of the good will and optimism that the Giants were able to conjure up this offseason has faded fast in 2018. Despite resigning elite receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and drafting one of the strongest athletes in the 2018 draft class in Saquon Barkley, New York has continued the mediocrity from their 3-13 record in 2017. At 37 years old and in his 15th season, Manning is certainly not the franchise’s future, regardless of performance. However, his lackluster start has made his “weapons obsolete” according to Jordan Raanan of ESPN:Manning will hope he can stop the skid against the Houston Texans, who are also looking for their first victory of the season. Having already faced the Jaguars seventh ranked defense and the fourth best defense in Dallas, the Texans 12th ranked unit is still little relief for the struggling veteran.Comeback kidsNoah K. Murray-USA TODAY SportsRyan TannehillAfter missing all of 2017 due to an ACL injury, Tannehill has Miami sitting atop of the AFC East with a 2-0 record. Dolphins fans have been searching for this version of the Texas A&M product since the team took him with the eighth pick in the 2012 draft. Through two weeks, Tannehill is posting a career-high passer rating of 104.9, and if he continues at his current pace of two touchdowns per game, he will surpass his 2014 record of 27 touchdowns by five scores. With Jarvis Landry now in Ohio, Kenny Stills has emerged as one of Tannehill’s most reliable targets, catching six of eight passes on the year and reaching the end zone twice against the Titans. With Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore building a successful ground game, Dowell Loggains’ multi-dimensional offense will look to carry their momentum to a 3-0 start when they host the winless Raiders. Andrew LuckLuck’s return to the Colts generated buzz all offseason, with some questioning if the quarterback would ever fully heal from his shoulder injury. In Week 3, he will face off against Carson Wentz, another signal caller looking to make a healthy return to the field after tearing his ACL in December. While Luck has not experienced quite the same level of prosperity as Tannehill, the Colts are 1-1 after defeating the Redskins in Week 2. In a loss to the Bengals, Luck still threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. However, he continues to be turnover prone, averaging 1.5 interception per game in 2018. While his passer rating is not eye popping, a .500 start shows some promise for an Indianapolis team that finished 4-12 last season.

ATLANTA (AP) — Larry Fitzgerald Youth Deion Sanders Jersey , Drew Brees and Travis Kelce are among NFL stars rewarding military veterans with trips to the Super Bowl.Through USAA, they will be joined by Christian McCaffrey, Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum, Falcons coach Dan Quinn and former Browns great Joe Thomas in honoring the veterans for their service.Fitzgerald is bringing Army Lt. Jameson Lopez to Atlanta. Lopez was responsible for coordinating more than 300 combat missions with the Iraqi and Kurdish security forces.“Teaming up with USAA and The Pat Tillman Foundation to honor military veterans this year has been a very rewarding experience for me, first with My Cause My Cleats, and now with a Super Bowl ticket giveaway,” Fitzgerald said. “I had the opportunity to meet Jameson Lopez earlier this year and I’m happy to be able to help send him on a trip of a lifetime to the Super Bowl.”Brees, teaming with the USO, is rewarding a Saints fans, hardly a surprise. Retired Army Sgt. Patrick Gray won several medals for his work in Afghanistan.“As a lifelong Saints fan who has served our country for 20 years, this is simply a small way to say thank you,” Brees said.Kelce’s recipient of a Super Bowl trip is former Army Sgt. Patrick Benson, a Bronze Star winner who founded the nonprofit War Horses for Veterans after he left the service.“Sgt. Patrick Benson first served his country in the Army and now he continues his service by helping fellow veterans as they return home,” Kelce said. “In honor of his service, I am pleased to award, with the help of USAA and the VFW, a trip to the Super Bowl to Sgt. Benson.”Quinn, a recipient of the NFL’s Salute to Service Award, worked with TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) to honor Zachary Boland, a marine private who passed away in 2016.“Zachary Boland made the ultimate sacrifice, passing away during training, but his commitment to our country lives on courtesy of his father Bob, who served in the Army, and his brother Nathaniel, a current Marine Stitched Steve Bartkowski Jersey ,” said Quinn. “It’s a special privilege to team up with USAA and TAPS to award Bob and Nathaniel a trip to the Super Bowl.”Falcons teammates Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Nick Saban’s witching hour experiments In the early morning hours of January 7, 2011, at around 2 a.m., Nick Saban worked in his secret lab located underneath Bryant-Denny Stadium. Offensive coordinator Jim McElwain looked on, and Julio Jones laid with eyes closed in the experiment chair.Later that day, Julio — Saban’s most successful project — would declare for the NFL Draft as an agreed upon deal the Alabama coach had with the NCAA: he was allowed to build these freakish athletes in the lab to help win him championships, but he had to let them declare for the NFL Draft as soon as they were eligible to do so. If these star athletes consistently stayed in school for four years, that would draw serious suspicion.Saban was having a harder time than usual letting Julio Jones go, however. After all, Jones was Saban’s most exceptional work — a 6’3 wide receiver who could run a 4.3 40-yard dash and who could cut on a dime. He had all of the tools to take the NFL by storm.The head coach got to work on the Julio experiment right after his departure from LSU following the 2004 season. It always took a few years for the athlete to mature into football readiness, and after suffering through a 7-6 debut season with the Crimson Tide in 2007, Saban was prepared to deploy Jones into his lineup in the 2008 season. The Crimson Tide would go 36-5 over the next three seasons, and would win the National Championship in 2009.Now, Jones lay on the experiment chair like many athletes before him. Saban wanted to extract a piece of him and create another star wide receiver from that freakish DNA. He was doing this under the table, without the NCAA’s knowledge.“Don’t you think this is somewhat unethical?” asked the uncomfortable McElwain from the other side of the room. Jim McElwain had been Alabama’s offensive coordinator for the past three seasons and always had a feeling that Julio Jones wasn’t fully human, with the gifts he possessed.“What have you seen in your time here at Alabama that would suggest anything we do is ethical? This is a football factory, both literally and figuratively, and I’ll do anything to win,” replied the furious Saban, who never liked to be questioned by his assistants.“Another comment like that out of you, and I’ll clone you, find your clone a head coaching job and send you to the pit of used-up coordinators, as I did with Major Applewhite,” Saban added.McElwain would shut up after this exchange but Youth Steve Bartkowski Jersey , while curious as to why Saban’s pit was called the “pit of used-up coordinators,” he wouldn’t act on his hunch and run away from his mad scientist head coach like he should’ve.Following the 2011 season, he would learn that Saban always banishes his coordinators into the pit after they’ve served their purpose at Alabama, while sending their clones on their way to head coaching gigs, where they are currently 0-12 in head-to-head matchups against their former mentor.To this day, McElwain sits in the pit, alongside Derek Dooley, Will Muschamp, Mark Dantonio, Jimbo Fisher, Major Applewhite, Doug Nussmeier, Lane Kiffin, Kirby Smart and Steve Sarkisian.That banishment would happen in a year, but on this night Saban had successfully extracted the sample he was looking for from Julio Jones and had incubated his new experiment. The part of Jones which was extracted was his touchdown scoring prowess, and he would have less and less of a nose for the end zone as this new player grew and became stronger.Saban labeled this new project “Calvin Ridley,” and since he wasn’t made from scratch like the rest of the experimental athletes, he would grow at a quicker rate than them. Saban put this new egg incubation next to an egg labeled “Tua Tagovailoa” and went on his way.Saban was a patient man. He knew that it would take a few years for these athletes to mature (Ridley more quickly than Tagovailoa), but when they did, they would help continue the dominance he held over the rest of college football. In the meantime, he had experiments/athletes such as Amari Cooper, Landon Collins and HaHa Clinton-Dix at the point of maturity. They were ready to bridge the gap between Jones and Ridley.And while Jones would suffer a touchdown drought in the NFL, Ridley would make up for it a number of years from now as a touchdown-scoring machine.

The Panthers were back on the practice field again today as they prepare for a key NFC South matchup against the Buccaneers on Sunday.Here’s the good news: everyone who didn’t practice yesterday returned to the field today. The Panthers are in a must win situation when they travel to Tampa this weekend Youth Marquis Haynes Jersey , and having Devin Funchess, Donte Jackson, Curtis Samuel, Ryan Kalil, Eric Reid and Greg Olsen available to play makes accomplishing that goal much easier.Funchess Stitched Marquis Haynes Jersey , Newton and Manhertz were limited, but everyone else returned to full participation.

Evans did not practice after hurting his knee against the Bengals last weekend, but Thursday brought better news.Evans returned to the field as a limited participant in practice, so it looks likelier that he will be available in Week Nine. Evans has put up good numbers with both Fitzpatrick and Jameis Winston playing quarterback this year Youth Ian Thomas Jersey , but all four of his touchdowns have come on passes from Fitzpatrick.Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy missed practice, but it was to be with his wife for the birth of their child rather than the calf injury that’s kept him out the last two weeks. Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (ribs/foot) and running back Ronald Jones (hamstring) were both out for the second day in a row.

dominate at times and will do his best to make it happen.Why the Red Six can pay on the MLB linesThe Red Sox were outstanding offensively in Game 1 and will lean on David Price (16-7 , 3.58 ERA) and his pitching next in Game 2. The 33-year-old came through on the road in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series, allowing just three hits to the defending World Series champion Houston Astros in six scoreless innings with no walks and nine strikeouts to earn the first postseason victory of his career.Like Ryu, Price is capable of dominating opponents if he can just forget about past failures in the playoffs. Winning at Houston was a huge first step, and beating L.A. would be bigger. Smart betting pickThe big question here if you want to back Boston is Jorge Soler Jersey , can you really trust Price in this key spot? His last start was remarkable, especially since it came away from home. He was 9-2 at Fenway Park during the regular season with a 2.98 ERA, more than a run lower than on the road. Meanwhile, Ryu simply cannot be trusted considering how poorly he pitched at Milwaukee in the National League Championship Series , so oddsmakers got it right in making the Red Sox home favorites. The Dodgers have lost five straight games at Fenway, according to the OddsShark MLB Database, and they will make it six in a row after falling again in Game 2 on Wednesday. MLB betting trendsLos Angeles is 3-8 SU in its last 11 games when playing Boston.The total has gone over in six of Los Angeles' last nine games on the road.The total has gone over in five of Boston's last six games.

The team in suburban Austin, Texas, is owned in part by Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, and is expected to become Houston’s Triple-A team. Ryan works as a consultant for the Astros , whose president is son Reid Ryan.Before the eight years with Round Rock, the Rangers were affiliated with Oklahoma City from 1983-2010.The Sounds had been affiliated with the Oakland Athletics since 2015, when the team opened a new ballpark in downtown Nashville.

DETROIT (AP) — This time , the Kansas City Royals had enough hitting and pitching.Ian Kennedy pitched three-run ball into the eighth inning, and the Royals stopped a five-game slide by holding off the Detroit Tigers for a 4-3 win on Friday night.Alex Gordon had three hits for the Royals, who hit four homers in 11-8 loss in the series opener. Rosell Herrera had two hits and drove in a run.“We made a couple mistakes on 0-2 pitches, and they cost us runs,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Other than that, our pitching was fantastic.”The sloppy Tigers committed three errors while losing for the eighth time in 11 games.“We just played terrible baseball,” manager Ron Gardenhire said. “We made errors and we made bad decisions.”Kennedy (3-8) won his second straight start, permitting two earned runs and seven hits in seven-plus innings. He struck out six and walked none.“I’ve been executing in the last three games — that’s literally the only thing that has changed,” Kennedy said. “I’m throwing good pitches, and in meaningful spots, I’m throwing strikes.”Wily Peralta worked a shaky ninth for his 12th save. Ronny Rodriguez led off with an infield single, but James McCann bunted into a 1-6 forceout at second.“Wily’s more athletic than he looks,” Yost said. “He bounded off the mound and made a great throw to second.”Jeimer Candelario then drew a pinch-hit walk before Peralta struck out Dawel Lugo and Jim Adduci.Detroit left-hander Francisco Liriano (5-11) was charged with four runs Maikel Franco Jersey , one earned, and six hits in six innings. He has a 1.88 ERA in his last four starts.Kansas City jumped in front on Detroit’s first defensive mistake. With one out in the first, Adalberto Mondesi singled and took off on a 1-1 pitch to Gordon.Gordon looped a single to shallow left, and Mondesi took a big turn at third and kept going when rookie Christin Stewart lobbed the ball into second.“I kept my head up on the play, and I’m always looking to make a play,” Mondesi said. “When I saw he was going to make the short throw, I went hard.”Stewart, a hitting prospect not known for solid defense, was making his 12th major league appearance.“That will be a learning experience for the kid,” Gardenhire said. “He’s got to be quicker getting to the ball, and he’s got to get rid of it. If he makes a faster play and hits the cut-off man, everything is fine.”Gordon added an RBI single in the third, and the Royals scored two more runs in the fourth , aided by errors by first baseman Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Stewart.“We’re going to be working on defense a lot in spring training,” Gardenhire said. “We’ll have our whole group together and we’re going to improve some of these things.”Rodriguez homered in the fifth for the Tigers, and Nicholas Castellanos doubled home a run in the sixth.Kennedy left after Pete Kozma reached on an error, and Castellanos made it 4-3 with a two-out double off Kevin McCarthy. Victor Martinez, playing in his next-to-last major league game, grounded out to first to end the inning.Martinez received an ovation before the at-bat.“I wish I could have gotten a hit there for the fans,” he said. “They are like a family to me. Families fight, and there have been some times when they let us know we weren’t playing well, but they are always here for us.”TRAINER’S ROOMTigers: With INFs Niko Goodrum (quad) and Candelario (back) still bothered by injuries, Harold Castro was promoted from Triple-A Toledo. Castro hadn’t arrived by game time, and the Tigers ended up with Saltalamacchia playing first base for the first time since 2016.ETIQUETTE QUESTIONIn the eighth inning, McCarthy rode in on the Comerica Park bullpen cart and didn’t know what to do at the end of the ride.“I had never done that before, so I wasn’t sure if I should tip the driver Pete Rose Jersey ,” he said.ONE MORE GAME FOR MARTINEZMartinez announced before Friday’s game he will finish his 16-season career on Saturday against the Royals. Martinez will sit out Sunday’s series finale and accompany the team on its final road trip without playing.“I feel like I owe it to the fans to have my final at-bats here,” said Martinez, who will be honored in a pregame ceremony.UP NEXTThe teams play the third game of their series on Saturday night, with Detroit’s Jordan Zimmermann (7-8, 4.41 ERA) facing Jakob Junis (8-12, 4.42 ERA). WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Washington first baseman Ryan Zimmerman is feeling sick, delaying his debut in exhibition games.“He came in today to see a doctor but I sent him home,” manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday. “I’m not going to take a chance with him, put him out there and let him get one or two at bats.”Zimmerman saw most of his spring training action last year in minor league games on the back fields, and he appeared in only one big league exhibition. The 34-year-old has played in more than 115 games just once in the past four seasons due to shoulder issues, muscle strains and plantar fasciitis.While Martinez seemed to agree with Zimmerman’s approach last spring training, he didn’t like the results — particularly defensively.“The biggest thing for me is to get him out there on the field playing defense ,” Martinez said. “I really thought that you need to be on the field, you need to move around, you need to play defense.”Zimmerman had 13 homers and 51 RBIs in 85 games last year. He has a .279 career average with 264 homers in 14 seasons with the Nationals.“You’re getting your legs and your body used to getting ready for every pitch, running to first base when there’s a ground ball,” Zimmerman said. “I think that’s a huge difference.”Martinez said Zimmerman could be in the lineup Friday against Miami.“All his workouts are good,” Martinez said. “He’s been running the bases, actually been running the bases on his own, quite a bit.”Catcher Yan Gomes missed a day before the start of spring training games, and catching prospect Spencer Kieboom isn’t 100 percent.

GOODYEAR Catfish Hunter Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — A week after outfielder Matt Kemp was traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Cincinnati Reds, he got a sideline pass for Oklahoma basketball game and had a chance meeting with another Oklahoma native: Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench.“It was pretty cool,” Kemp said. “It just so happened that I just got traded to Cincinnati. It was only right to sit there and chat with him for a while.”Kemp learned firsthand about some of the Reds’ history after he was included in their biggest offseason trade. Cincinnati acquired Kemp, left-hander Alex Wood, Yasiel Puig and Kyle Farmer for Homer Bailey and minor leaguers Jeter Downs and Josiah Gray on Dec. 21. It was the fourth time the 34-year old outfielder was traded, but this one was unique given that he wasn’t alone going to a new team.“Transitioning every time is different,” he said, as the Reds opened camp with their first workout by catchers and pitchers. “I think this time it is easier. I’ve got a couple guys here who I played with last year. So far so good.”Kemp joins a Reds team with a changed outfield after center fielder Billy Hamilton was allowed to go free and signed with Kansas City. Left fielder Adam Duvall was traded to Atlanta last year.Kemp won Gold Gloves in 2009 and 2011. Last season in 149 games Rollie Fingers Jersey , Kemp played the corner outfield positions. He and Puig join incumbent Jesse Winker, who had shoulder surgery midway through 2018, and Scott Schebler and Philip Ervin in competing for playing time.Kemp batted .290 with 21 home runs and 85 RBIs last season. He was one of seven Dodgers with 20 or more home runs as LA won the National League title but lost to the Boston Red Sox in five games.He is seven seasons removed from 2011, when he led the NL with 39 home runs and 126 RBIs for the Dodgers. Kemp signed a $160 million, eight-year contract and since has been dealt to San Diego, Atlanta, back to the Dodgers and then to the Reds. He and Puig can become free agents after the season, so their time in Cincinnati could be limited.Kemp has a .289 average with 10 homers in 36 games at Great American Ball Park. After four straight 90-loss seasons , the Reds are looking to be more competitive in the NL Central with their overhauled roster.“I think we’re going to be pretty good,” Kemp said. As Bryce Harper remains unsigned with spring training camps starting to heat up, it appears as though a reunion with the Washington Nationals is unlikely.Nationals owner Mark Lerner revealed to NBC Sports Washington's Lisa Redmond on Friday that the team has "moved on" and it has not heard from the prized free agent or his representative Scott Boras in "months":"Nothing's certainly changed on our end. We've moved on. As I said back then and we had to. There was no way we could wait around. Bryce, I'm sure will make his decision hopefully in the next few days, but we've filled out our roster and like I said, we wish him nothing but the best."But there's always that, the door's cracked a little bit. I have no clue at this point what they're up to. We really haven't heard from them in a couple months."Back in November,Chelsea Janesof theWashington Postreported the Nationals had offered the 2015 National League MVP a 10-year Dave Henderson Jersey , $300 million contract, a deal that did not include any opt-outs.The Athletic'sJim Bowdenlater noted in January that the team's most recent offer was "much more than the $300 million being reported by the media."That increased offer apparently wasn't enough to get a deal done, though. At least not yet.Harper hit .249/.393/.496 with 34 home runs, 34 doubles and 100 RBI in 2018, using a strong second half (.300 average post-All-Star break) to finish his walk year on a high note.And with Washington playing host to the 2018 MLB All-Star festivities, Harper put on a show for the hometown crowd on his way to the Home Run Derby title:That was just the latest feat achieved by the Nationals star. Along with an MVP award and a Derby title, Harper already has accumulatedsix All-Star selections, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year award and a 2015 NL Silver Slugger.That's quite the resume Dennis Eckersley Jersey , especially for someone who is only 26 years old.The Harper sweepstakes are expected to heat up now that Manny Machado is off the market. Machado'srecord-breaking contractwith the San Diego Padres became official on Thursday. The 10-year, $300 million pact is the largest free-agent deal in North American sports history.In other words, Harper and Boras now know the number to beat.The Padres, Philadelphia Phillies, San Francisco Giants and Chicago White Sox are all among the teams to show interest in Harper this offseason.Jon Heymanof Fancred reported on Thursday that San Diego remains in the mix even after signing Machado, whileUSA Today'sBob Nightengaletweeted that the White Sox have dropped out.According toHeyman, Harper is believed to have turned down "multiple offers over $300 million" in recent weeks.

Sunday:$140 MILLION MANPatrick Corbin begins earning the $140 million contract he signed with the Nationals Rusney Castillo Jersey , making his first start for his new team against the visiting Mets. The 29-year-old lefty was considered the top starting pitcher on the free agent market and got a six-year deal to slot in behind Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. The Nationals couldn’t win behind either Scherzer or Strasburg in the first two games of the season, though, and they’ll be hoping Corbin can prevent a sweep and an 0-3 start.After have to fight for his roster spot throughout spring training, Mets rookie slugger Pete Alonso is fast rewarding New York for giving him the job at first base. Alonso had three hits Saturday in an 11-8 win and is 4 for 8 in his first two big league games. Criticized often for his glove work as a minor leaguer, Alonso even made two nifty stretch plays at first in his second game. Zack Wheeler tries to pitch the Mets to 3-0.BRYCE ON THE BOARDBryce Harper and the Phillies conclude their first series a day after he hit a mammoth home run and got a rather enthusiastic curtain call for the second game of the season. Harper’s homer was projected to 465 feet, traveling well into the second deck in right-center field at Citizens Bank Park. The crowd responded with a long ovation, including the Phillie Phanatic, who wore cleats bearing Harper’s face after Harper did the same for the green, fuzzy mascot in his Phillies debut. RHP Jake Arrieta is scheduled to start for Philadelphia against Braves rookie RHP Kyle Wright.It will be the first of the ESPN Sunday night telecasts that start an hour earlier this season.LATE STARTThe Astros hope to get Carlos Correa back at shortstop after he missed the season’s first three games with neck stiffness. Aledmys Diaz filled in for the first two games against Tampa Bay and made two errors. Alex Bregman slid over from third to short Saturday and hit his first homer of the season on his 25th birthday.
