RIO DE JANEIRO -- With one last chance for a gold medal in what is probably her last Olympics, Vivian Cheruiyot turned to -- who else -- Usain Bolt for a pre-race pep talk. Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys .Guess what? It worked.The Kenyan said she shared a few words with Bolt before her 5,000-meter final at the Olympic Stadium on Friday. Then she ran down world champion and heavy favorite Almaz Ayana to win a long-awaited first Olympic title. She also set a new Games record.It was my fourth Olympic Games, and I had not got gold, the 32-year-old Cheruiyot said. Almaz can go fast. ... Today I said, I am going to follow her. I am not going to lose her.Ayana set a world record to win gold in the 10,000 meters a week ago and opened a big gap in Fridays 5K final. But the Ethiopian suddenly faded, and Cheruiyot and Kenyan teammate Hellen Obiri saw their chance.Cheruiyot surged, breezing past Ayana with around two laps to go to win in 14 minutes, 26.17 seconds, breaking an Olympic record that has stood for 16 years. Obiri followed home in second for silver, 3.60 seconds behind Cheruiyot for a Kenyan 1-2.Ayana, who was tipped to have a crack at the 5,000 world record in the final after missing it by just a second in June, slumped and held on grimly for third in 14:33.59.I saw her, I saw shes not running smoothly and also she was slow, Cheruiyot said. She was not going good and we were coming, and I said to Hellen, Lets go, lets go. We are going to get something.The victory gave Cheruiyot revenge for her second-place finish behind the Ethiopian in the 10,000 earlier in these Games and finally put her on the top of the podium at her fourth Olympics, and after a silver and a bronze at London 2012, and another silver a week ago.All three medalists crossed inside the former Olympic record of 14:40.79 set by Romanias Gabriela Szabo at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Not surprisingly, the five top finishers were all from Kenya or Ethiopia.The 24-year-old Ayana, completely dominant in the 10,000, was expected to challenge Ethiopian compatriot Tirunesh Dibabas world record of 14:11.15 in the 5,000 final. Halfway through she had taken control after an early break by Japans Miyuki Uehara and opened a big gap on the chasers.But, on a warm night in Rio, Cheruiyot paced herself better, sinking Ayanas bid for a 5,000-10,000 double at her first Olympics.Nikki Hamblin, the runner whose act of sportsmanship alongside American Abbey DAgostino in the 5,000 meters heats warmed hearts at the Olympics, finished last in the final in 16:14.24 -- still a personal best for the New Zealander.I went out there and I tried to compete, I tried as hard as I could, Hamblin said. I hung on for a while and then the move came and I didnt have the legs.The two were involved in one of the feel-good moments of the games when they collided in their heat and both tumbled. DAgostino first helped Hamblin to her feet and encouraged her to finish the race. The American then realized she had sustained a bad knee injury. Hamblin returned the favor by helping her, and DAgostino finished the race while grimacing in pain with torn knee ligaments.Both runners were given a place in Fridays final because of the collision but DAgostino didnt run because of her knee injury.Hamblin said shed now relive the moment on TV.Probably have to go back and rewatch it and have a cry about it and relive the Olympic moment, she said. Cheap Utah Jazz Jerseys . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Cheap Philadelphia 76ers Jerseys . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said.PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Pirates closer Jason Grilli has no intention of sitting out the Pirates bid for their first post-season appearance in more than two decades. Grilli remains out indefinitely with a strained tendon in his right (throwing) arm, but said Monday "Im going to be ready before the seasons out, you can mark my word on that." The 36-year-old made the first All-Star team of his career earlier this month and has converted 30 of 31 save opportunities but experienced searing pain in his right forearm while trying to finish off a victory over the Washington Nationals last Monday. Grilli acknowledges hed been dealing with some discomfort in the arm for awhile and wasnt 100 perfect but doesnt see any benefit in wondering if he should have come out sooner. "Im not going to put myself in a position, could I have shut myself down earlier? Thats all in hindsight," he said. "I could have. But Im the type of guy that wants to get the ball every time. Thats the way Ive been my entire career." An MRI revealed no damage to his elbow, something Grilli called "the best possible scenario." Instead of surgery he will rest the arm for another week before being re-examined. Though there is no timetable for hhis return, the usual recovery period for a strained flexor is 1-2 months. Cheap NBA Jerseys China. Still, it hasnt exactly been fun for Grilli to play the cheerleader instead of the hammer at the back of one of the best bullpens in the majors. "Its hard to watch baseball going on without you," he said. "But Im here in this clubhouse and not on a surgery table." Mark Melancon, who made the All-Star team as a setup man, is filling in for Grilli and has converted both save chances since moving into the closers role as the Pirates try to chase down St. Louis in the NL Central race. The Cardinals have a 1.5-game lead heading into a five-game set in Pittsburgh that is the biggest series at PNC Park since it opened in 2001. Its a showdown Grilli has been pointing to for weeks. Hell spend it watching rather than playing as the Pirates try to take an important step toward escaping from the cloud of 20 consecutive losing seasons. Its a cloud hes done his best to part. Whenever his right arm tells him its ready to go, he believes there will still be important games to play. The Pirates and the Cardinals meet in St. Louis from Aug. 13-15 and again in Pittsburgh Aug. 30-Sept. 1. "My turn will come again," Grilli said. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

WHISTLER, British Columbia -- Elisabeth Vathje of Canada won the opening race of the womens skeleton World Cup season Friday night, easily prevailing on the track that hosted the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Cheap Nike Vapormax China .Vathjes two-run time was 1 minute, 49.25 seconds. It was her second World Cup gold medal, the other coming in Calgary two years ago.German sliders took the next two spots, with Jacqueline Loelling second in 1:50.09 and Tina Hermann third in 1:50.11.Olympic champion Lizzy Yarnold of Britain, competing for the first time since winning the world championships that ended the 2014-15 season, was fourth in 1:50.12.For the U.S., Annie OShea was tied for sixth, Savannah Graybill was 10th and Kendall Wesenberg was 19th.The next womens skeleton World Cup stop is Dec. 17 in Lake Placid, New York.

Cheap Vapormax Shoes .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Raiders are expected be without tight end Lee Smith and former starting middle linebacker Ben Heeney for the rest of the season after both players were injured during Sundays win in Baltimore.Neither player has been placed on injured reserve yet and both were continuing to be evaluated by the teams medical staff but Oakland coach Jack Del Rio was not optimistic about either Smith or Heeney returning this season.Both of those guys are likely to go (on IR), Del Rio said Monday. As they finish the work that is done on those guy with our doctors and all the experts looking at it, if we determine that the time is such that we wont be able to get them back they could in fact go down. Its not officially done but its headed in that direction.Smith was injured after catching a short pass from quarterback Derek Carr midway through the second quarter. Smith had his back turned to the defense when Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith tackled him low from behind, causing the tight ends body to bend back awkwardly with his right foot stuck in the turf.Lee Smith had to be helped off the field and did not return. He was initially diagnosed with an ankle injury that was later changed to a lower leg injury.Del Rio didnt go into details about Smiths injury but said he is almost certain to require surgery.Theres some damage there, Del Rio said. Exactly how long it will take for him to recover and be back to full speed, Im not certain of that. I would say its tracking in the direction of him being unavailable to us. If that is the case then hell end up going on IR.The Raiders already have defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. on the injured reserve list with plans to bring him back, meaning any other players placed on IR will be done for the season.Losing Smith would be a significant blow to the NFLs No. 2 offense. Smith has six receptions but is Oaklands best blocking tight end who also doubles on sppecial teams. Cheap Vapormax For Sale. .While the Raiders still have Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera, Del Rio didnt rule out adding another tight end to the roster if Smith is out.It will take several people in all likelihood to fill his shoes because of all that he did, Del Rio said. Mainly the blocking, the dirty work, kind of an unsung kind of hero kind of role where hes just very tough, very determined.Heeneys situation is a little more uncertain.A fifth-round pick in 2015, Heeney was the Raiders starting middle linebacker for the first two games this year before being benched in favor of rookie Cory James. James led Oakland with 15 tackles in the win over Baltimore while Heeney played mostly on special teams.Del Rio didnt say when or how Heeney got hurt but a team spokesman confirmed that Heeney had suffered an ankle injury.Outside linebacker Malcolm Smith also had to come out of the Ravens game with a groin injury.At this point I dont have an update on that, Del Rio said. Were hopeful. Ill know more when I see him moving around tomorrow.The Raiders (3-1) are off to their best start since winning the AFC championship in 2002.Oakland was without its top three right tackles against Baltimore, forcing Vadal Alexander to make his first career start. The rookie was called for four penalties, including three for holding, but Del Rio defended the seventh-round draft picks performance.Those holding calls , there were a couple that were called on him that it was really tough to see any kind of holding going on there, Del Rio said. I thought he did a heck of job. I know that Khalil (Mack) would love to see all those type of things called every time hes held. It was tough. I think the young man played really well.----Online:AP NFL website: and cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

ATLANTA -- Paul Millsap was proud of how well the Atlanta Hawks adjusted with Dwight Howard and Thabo Sefolosha unable to play because of injuries. Cheap Nike Air Max Trainers Sale .We have a deep team, he said. It says a lot about our bench and what they bring, that they came in and did a great job and really set the tone for us, especially in the second quarter.Millsap scored 21 points, Mike Muscala added 16 and the Hawks won their sixth straight game, a 107-100 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points and 15 rebounds, and Jabari Parker scored 15 of his 23 points in the third quarter for Milwaukee.Muscala started in place of Howard, who was sidelined with a left quadriceps contusion. The Hawks improved to 6-1 at home and tied Cleveland for the best record in the Eastern Conference at 9-2.Atlantas bench, led by 13 points from Tim Hardaway Jr., outscored the Bucks 35-25.The defense was amazing, Millsap said. The second group came in and moved the basketball. We played how were supposed to play.The Bucks, who have lost three of four, pulled within four points on Antetokounmpos dunk with 37 seconds remaining, but Millsap hit a layup on the next possession to make it 104-98.Milwaukee ended the first quarter with a 26-21 lead but missed their next 11 shots and didnt score until the 5:50 mark of the second. They were outscored 31-9 in the period and went 3 for 27 from the field.Atlanta took its biggest lead at 24 points on Dennis Schroders 3-pointer early in the third, but Milwaukee scored 35 points in the third quarter and pulled within six with 9:06 remaining on Mirza Teletovics third 3 of the period.It was definitely a character game for a young team to come back and put themselves in that position on the road, Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. With 4 minutes left, it was anybodys ballgame. Again, tip your hat to Atlanta. They made the shots and got the stops when they had to.Antetokounmpos layup cut the lead to three a couple of possessions later at the 6:24 mark. That was as close as the Bucks could get.Our backs were on the wall, so we had no other choice but to be aggressive if we wanted to try to make it close, Parker said. Those are still good habits to have leading into the next game. But we know from our mistakes that we cant play the first half like we did.The Hawks improved to 8-1 when leading after three quarters.Schroder and Kent Bazemore scored 12 points each for Atlanta.NEED THE RESTHoward was injured in the third quarter Tuesday at Miami, banging knees with Heat center Hassan Whiteside. He did not return and was unable to watch Wednesdays game from the bench.Howard, the active career NBA leader in double-doubles, is averaging 14.8 points and 12.3 rebounds. The eight-time All-Star in his first season with Atlanta.Sefolosha, a reserve forward and the teams best defender, did not play because of a strained right hamstring.His and Howards absence helped the Bucks outscore Atlanta 50-28 in the paint.SHOWING POTENTIALDuring a 6-minute stretch of Atlantas 19-0 run in the second, rookie forward Taurean Prince was the catalyst. He blocked two shots, drew a foul, made two free throws, had three rebounds, a steal and a hard baseline dunk.Prince, the NBAs No. 12 overall draft pick out of Baylor, finished with eight points and five rebounds in a career-high 19 minutes.I thought Taurean was great, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. Just the physicality he plays with, the aggressiveness he plays with, he really gave us a big boost on both ends of the floor.UP NEXTBucks: Visit Miami on Thursday.Hawks: Visit Charlotte on Friday. Cheap Wholesale Air Max . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. Nike Air Max Cheap Wholesale . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. . After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. MIAMI -- Thanks to an All-Star ace, a solid bullpen and an abundance of .300 hitters, the Miami Marlins can savor their best record at the All-Star break since 1997.First-year Marlins manager Don Mattingly says his job is to make sure his young team isnt satisfied with what it has accomplished so far.Thats why they brought me in, said Mattingly, who led the Los Angeles Dodgers to division titles in 2013-15. Im very happy with the club, but I think theres more in there. You get the feeling that everybody is really excited the club is doing this well. There is just another level, and I think our guys have it in them.The Marlins begin the second half of the season Friday with a record of 47-41 and are tied with the New York Mets for second place in the NL East, six games behind the Washington Nationals.Winning the division is our goal, Mattingly said. The wild card is not something you really want to talk about. Id rather be leading by six than be down by six, but theres enough time and weve got a good enough club.Thats heady stuff for a franchise that was 38-51 at the break last season, hasnt been the playoffs since 2003 and has never won a division title in its 23-year history.Here are reasons a first-place finish might happen in 2016, or might not:OFFENSIVE UPGRADE: 2015 NL batting and stolen base champion Dee Gordon is expected to return July 28 from an 80-game suspension for a positive drug test. He will move into the leadoff spot for a lineup with five players batting over .300 at the break, the most in the majors since 1999. That does not include fourth outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, who is batting a team-high .335 and is 10 hits from 3,000.Gordon would not be eligible to play in the postseason.JOSES LIMITATIONS: Ace Jose Fernandez hasnt pitched a full season since his rookie yeaar in 2013, and the Marlins plan to limit him to about 180 innings. Air Max Wholesale Free Shipping. Hes at 107 1/3 already, so he wont make his next start until week, giving him at least seven days rest.Fernandez is also expected to skip a turn later this year, with the goal of having him still available in late September.I would rather do it that way and have him all year, Mattingly said. You have a good team and feel you have a chance to make the playoffs, and you dont want to have your best guy shut down.STARTER NEEDED: Contention has made the Marlins buyers for a change as the trade deadline approaches, and theyre shopping for a starter to shore up a rotation thats shaky after Fernandez.But as usual the market for starters is tough, and the Marlins have few top prospects for bargaining.Its extremely challenging right now, president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. There are not a large number of sellers. Hopefully well be able to get something done.SLUGGERS SURGE: Giancarlo Stanton won the All-Star Home Run Derby with a record 61 homers, the latest sign hes emerging from a prolonged slump. He said hes not worried the derby might mess up his swing.Have you seen my swing the first half? he said.Stanton was batting .193 on June 15 and is on pace for a career-high strikeout total. But he hit five homers in the final five games before the break, increasing his season total to 20, and has raised his average to .233.INTRADIVISION RECORD: The Marlins are 16-24 within the NL East and 31-17 against the rest of the majors. It would help their chances of a division title if they could figure out how to beat the last-place Atlanta Braves, who have gone 8-4 against Miami. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

College football has a remarkable wealth of returning star power for 2016. Cheap Stitched China Jerseys .That list starts with the four Heisman frontrunners: LSU running back Leonard Fournette, Oklahomas Baker Mayfield, Stanfords Christian McCaffrey and Clemsons Deshaun Watson.This week, Adam Rittenberg cornered perplexed coaches from across the country and asked them a simple question with not-so-simple answers: How do you stop those stars?The most common answer was, You dont stop them, but coaches had some innovative ideas of how to minimize the damage.?Heres a sampling of how coaches break down the four standouts.Leonard FournetteYou tackle him low, youre probably going to be concussed. You tackle him high, you may take a ride. And theyre going to force you, in the run game, to make people that dont like tackling tackle. -- SEC defensive coordinatorIf you make him go east and west, he gets tired. Hes a big back, and he really shouldnt be carrying that much weight. Id much rather have you hit him and run him out of bounds. Just keep him running, and that usually prevails. -- SEC coachRead moreBaker MayfieldYou have to be careful as a pass-rusher or a blitzer. Just dont run by him. Keep him in front of you, what we call keep your points on the quarterback. Dont run up the field and let him escape underneath [into] your rush lane. We had free runners to him in some of our pressures, but he just avoided the tackles. Hes got really good balance. -- Defensive coordinator who faced Mayfield last yearThe thing you notice is hes always got a great pre-snap awareness of where the ball should go, so the balls coming out quick a lot of times. You can change looks. You cant give him easy throws pre-snap. -- Big 12 head coachRead moreChristian McCaffreyHes stronger than you think, hes bigger than you think, he plays stronger than you think, hes more deceptive and elusive. I dont know what he cant do. I really believe if he played in the Central time zone or Eastern time zone, not saying he would have won the Heisman, but he would have been higher up. -- Power 5 head coachOne of the best things to stop [McCaffrey], and Im being serious, is dont let [Stanford] have the ball. Talk to your head coach and your offensive people into running the ball and just killing the clock, move the chains. If they dont listen to that, its going to be what it is. Youve got to try to outscore em. -- Pac-12 defensive coordinatorRead moreDeshaun WatsonAlabama couldnt defend him. Nick doesnt even like to talk about that game. -- ACC coachYou cant view him as a typical quarterback. Youve got to account for him. You have to put a few more guys in the box and do a few things to disrupt the handoffs and things that make him think a bit. But you cant play traditional soft coverage, and nobodys forcing the issue. -- Defensive line coach who faced Clemson last yearRead more Cheap Stitched NFL Jerseys . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. Cheap College Stitched Jerseys . There was no hesitation from the 40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Adelaide will give two of their brightest prospects a chance to impress in their AFL clash with struggling Brisbane.The Crows have named debutant Reilly OBrien to replace injured ruckman Sam Jacobs on Saturday, while powerful midfielder Cam Ellis-Yolmen will line up for the first time this season in place of rested veteran Scott Thompson.Its the first time fifth-placed Adelaide have added new blood to their side since they included defender Ricky Henderson in their round seven loss to the Western Bulldogs.The Crows have opted to rotate through the same group of 27 players, which are the fewest used by any side in the 2016 competition and a far cry from the likes of injury-ravaged Gold Coast (39).For players such as Ellis-Yolmen, who played 11 games in 2015, the Crows hot form and good run with injuries has proved a major obstacle to senior selection.Adelaide assistant coach James Podsiadly says the 23-year-olds inclusion against Brisbane presents him with an opportunity to be considered for the finals.From the match committees perspective, weve been looking at him all year, Podsiadly said on Friday.Hes shown some resilience to wait until rouund 20 to get his first game. Stitched Soccer Jerseys Online. You can say hes a bit unlucky, but at the same time weve had some good guys in some good form.We wouldnt pick him if we didnt think he could have an impact in finals.Breaking into the side has proven even tougher for OBrien.First-choice ruckman Jacobs had notched up 93 consecutive games - the second-longest streak in the AFL - before being ruled out for the Brisbane game with a sprained ankle.OBrien will go head-to-head with another rookie in second-gamer Archie Smith, who accumulated 30 hitouts and 19 touches in his debut against Port Adelaide last week.Crows captain Taylor Walker, who was sidelined for a week with an ankle injury, has also been added for the Saturday night clash at Adelaide Oval.He replaces rookie forward Mitch McGovern, who will be managed after playing every game this season.With just two wins to their name this season, Brisbane could be in for more pain after conceding the highest score of the year in their 25.23 (173) to 11.13 (79) loss to the Power. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Thursdays game between the St. Air Max 90 Canada Online . Louis Blues and Edmonton Oilers will mark a few homecomings.All eyes will be on Nail Yakupov, who the Oilers traded to the Blues before the start of the season. Yakupov has been widely regarded as a draft bust; the first overall pick in the 2012 draft, the Russian right winger got only 50 goals in 252 games as an Oiler.In four games with the Blues, Yakupov has a goal and an assist.It is weird, Yakupov told Oilers play-by-play man Jack Michaels in a 630 CHED interview. When I was here, I didnt expect that I would stay in a hotel in this city, because I lived in this city. But, its different. But, its really good, now, we have a good team and a good group.He is fitting in, said Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo of his new teammate. Its a different environment coming in -- and new linemates. I think hes playing a pretty hard game. Hes created some really good chances. Its new systems for him ... but hes adjusting pretty well.But its another Russian who is lighting it up for St. Louis. Vladimir Tarasenko is tied for the league lead with four goals.And, Thursday will also mark the final time Ken Hitchcock will coach an NHL game in his hometown.Unless he has a change of heart, Hitchcock, an Edmonton native, is in his final season as a head coach. The Blues visit Rogers Place only once this season.The Blues have started Hitchcocks final season in blistering fashion. Despite losing 2-1 in overtime in Vancouver on Tuesday night, the Blues are 3-0-1. It marks only the second time in team history that the Blues have earned points in the first four games of a regular season.Meanwhile, the Oilers have won three of their first four, and scored 17 times in the process. Thursdays game, though, is the teams fourth home game of the season already -- the Oilers have played just one road date.Because October is filled with so many home games for the Oilers, coach Todd McLellan said a good start to season isnt a want, its a need.Having home games, and needing to put some points in the bank, knowing eventually youve got to go out on the road, weve been able to do that, he said. I dont think anybody is comfortable yet, so we got some things we really need to work on. It keeps us on our edge, maybe Im being too critical of our group.The issue is that the Oilers have scored 17 (most in the Western Conference), but given up 15 (also most in the Western Conference). Each of the four games played so far this season have felt like a return to the Air Hockey Era of the 1980s.But Oilers goalie Cam Talbot turned in his best performance of the season Tuesday, stopping 31 of 33 shots after giving up six goals in a loss to Buffalo on Sunday .I need a big bounce-back game, after the game I had last. As a team, I think that sometimes we let those losses kinda snowball in the past.On Wednesday, Talbot and his wife welcomed twins to their family.Oilers defenseman Mark Fayne left Tuesdays win over Carolina with a lower-body injury. He was placed on injured reserve Wednesday and the Oilers called up defenseman Ben Betker from their AHL affiliate in Bakersfield, Calif. The Oilers did not practice Wednesday.The Blues placed Jori Lehtera, who hurt his hip Saturday in a win over the New York Rangers, on injured reserve Wednesday, which opens up a roster spot. Air Max 90 Canada . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance.

NEW YORK -- Offseason workouts, training camp and preseason games are supposed to supply answers for the 32 NFL teams. Nike NBA Jerseys Autographed .Sometimes, they do. More often, the questions remain when the real stuff kicks off.Here are some relatively unsolved dilemmas:---STARTING QBS: Every team has one -- yes, even the Broncos figured out who will take the snaps Peyton Manning hoarded so well the past few years. And you heard right, it is Trevor Siemian.Not every team can be sure what it has. Such as:Patriots -- Now heres a switch. With Tom Brady suspended for four games, the untested Jimmy Garoppolo gets his first (and possibly last) chance. The joke going around is that Jimmy G will go 4-0 and the coaching staff will then tell Tom Terrific he is now a backup.If nothing else, the Patriots will get some of those answers about their backup quarterback. Like, perhaps, is he a future replacement for a retired Brady down the road?Texans -- Brock Osweiler had a nice but short stint last season subbing for Manning. He parlayed it into, well, Manning-type money. Now he must show he is worthy of franchise-QB pay.Houston won the AFC South with mediocre play at the position in 2015. So Osweiler doesnt need to be a superstar right away, even though he is getting those big bucks.Browns -- It only seems as if Robert Griffin III is the 100th Browns signal caller since Cleveland got back its franchise in 1999. Which RG3 will this be, someone close to the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year sensation? Or the oft-injured and benched RG3 of recent vintage?Colts, Ravens, Eagles -- Can Andrew Luck, Joe Flacco, and Sam Bradford make it through 2016 unscathed?---RIGHT COACH, WRONG COACH: Several coaches begin the season without a whole lot of security. Nothing that happens in the summer affects that. Everything that happens over the next few months does.Those coaches are:Rex Ryan -- Sure, its only his second year in charge of the Bills, and he did some nice work previously with the Jets. Still, Buffalo hasnt seen the playoffs since the previous century, and Rex comes with a lot of bravado and even bluster. Anything like last seasons 8-8 wont do.Gus Bradley -- Not many coaches get a fourth season in charge after going 12-36. To their credit, the Jaguars have been patient and seem to have put together a contender in a mediocre AFC South. Should they flop again this season, Bradley likely will be looking for a defensive coordinators job. If they succeed -- a winning record could be enough, a playoff berth certainly would be -- Bradley can begin thinking about seizing control of the division.Jeff Fisher -- Unquestionably, Fisher was the right guy to oversee the Rams move from St. Louis to Los Angeles. Hed been through that drill before with the Oilers/Titans. And he eventually led that franchise to a Super Bowl.That doesnt mean he has a long leash in Hollywood. The Rams have gone 27-36-1 under him and the offense has been particularly stagnant. Still, Fisher is a survivor, and a pretty fine coach.Mike McCoy -- The Chargers need a big turnaround before the November elections to entice the public to support a new stadium in San Diego. McCoy led the Chargers to a pair of 9-7 marks before they flopped badly to 4-12. In a very tough division, McCoy needs to solve a weak running game and underwhelming defense.---SACKMASTERS: In the pass-happy NFL, the most important defensive player has become the guy who can get to the quarterback. It certainly is critical to have strong coverage players, but the most effective way to prevent a Brady or Rodgers or Brees from tearing apart a defense is by not giving him time to set up and throw.Every team is searching for them. Some have found them recently: Khalil Mack in Oakland, Aaron Donald in Los Angeles, Ziggy Ansah in Detroit.So can they remain consistent threats to the passer? And who else might emerge, carrying their teams into contention?Some names to consider: Leonard Williams of the Jets, Mario Addison of the Panthers and Jacquies Smith of the Buccaneers.---AP NFL website: and Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Authentic Nike NBA Gear .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Texas didnt win the Big 12 Conference volleyball title this year. There was some debate whether the Longhorns should have gotten the No. 4 seed over the team that did win that league, Kansas. And Texas was on the verge of being eliminated in the regional semifinals, but fought off two match points to survive BYU.And yet it wasnt long into what turned into a 3-0 sweep Thursday of defending NCAA champion Nebraska that you could tell this was Texas full-throttle. Which made none of the above question marks really matter.Its just awesome to know I have the type of pin hitters I have. Theyre just a force to be reckoned with, Texas setter Chloe Collins said. I just love them so much.Nebraska swept Texas in the NCAA final last year, and then beat the Longhorns again 3-0 in August at the start of this season.But if you look at the recent history of the series before those two matches, it had tilted strongly toward Texas at 9-2 since 2008. That kind of Longhorns dominance was more what we saw Thursday.Ebony Nwanebu, who played two seasons at USC and was the national freshman of the year in 2013, transferred to Texas but had to redshirt last year with injury. Micaya White also had to sit out what would have been her freshman year in 2015 because she was injured.But with both of them this season, along with senior Paulina Prieto Cerame, the Longhorns hitters were indeed a force, as Collins said.And the Huskers simply didnt play the way that coach John Cook expected. They made uncharacteristic mistakes, like the time a set ball fell to the court with the hitters looking confused at each other.Cook said he thought the Huskers were the best defensive team in the country, and that he would have bet my house the Nebraska block wouldnt have been as ineffective as it was.Cook said after watching his top-seeded Huskers and No. 2 seed Minnesota lose in the final four -- not to mention No. 3 seed Wisconsin falling in the regional final -- he has to wonder if the brutal Big Ten schedule took a toll on all of them.For some reason, we were really undisciplined tonight, Cook said. I think it all filters back to we were trying too hard. We thought we had to make these super-human moves on these guys.The thing is, the Longhorns really can make you feel like you need something extraordinary to stop them. Nwanebu had 115 kills, Prieto Cerame 12, and White seven. Signed Nike NBA Jerseys. At times, it just looked like they flat-out overpowered the Huskers.Texas coach Jerritt Elliott pointed out how, as good as Big 12 player of the year Amy Neal was last year for the Longhorns, she was undersized as a hitter at 5-foot-9.Now we replaced her with [6-1] Micaya, and you start seeing what we can do with a physical block, Elliott said. I thought our blocking tonight was really, really good.Texas also did a good job of keeping the ball away from Nebraskas Justine Wong-Orantes, whom Elliott said was the top passing libero in the country. That impacted Nebraskas ability to defend and to set up its offense. First-team All-American Kadie Rolfzen had six kills on 19 attacks, hitting .105. The only Nebraska player who finished in double-figure kills was last years final four most outstanding player, sophomore Mikaela Foecke.A lot will be on Foeckes shoulders next season, as the Huskers lose seniors Kadie and Amber Rolfzen, Wong-Orantes, and Andie Malloy.For the Nebraska-born Rolfzens, this was a tough way to finish their careers. But Kadie said last years NCAA title, won in Omaha, Nebraska, and this years Big Ten title are still wonderful highlights for her to always remember.Kadie seem very determined not to cry during the postmatch news conference, and almost made it. Until she was talking about how she grew up watching the Huskers and her idol, Jordan Larson, play and how great it was to have had the chance to wear Nebraska red.Dang it, she said as tears started to come. Ive always wanted to come here, and these last four years are the best years of my life.But it will be Texas that plays for the championship. Elliott compared this years team statistically to his 2012 squad, which won the most recent of Texas two national championships. This Texas team has had its ups and downs, but looks very formidable at the most important time in the season.We had a lot of self-confidence as a team going into it, Elliott said of Thursdays match. Ive been to a lot of final fours, and this is the calmest Ive been going into it. I just had a feeling with this group that they would perform at a high level tonight. And they proved that. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '

TAMPA , Fla. (AP) — Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning completed a successful opening stretch at home.Stamkos scored his first goal of the season, Andrei Vasilevskiy made 29 saves and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-1 on Thursday night.Stamkos ended a 16-game regular-season goal drought dating to last season from the slot with 4:41 left in the second. The goal gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead.“It’s always nice to get your first of the year and get it going,” Stamkos said.Vasilevskiy, 7-0-0 against Detroit, stopped Christoffer Ehn’s shot during a 2-on-none short-handed break in the first and made a post-to-post glove save on Frans Nielsen during a second period 2-on-1.Brayden Point and Alex Killorn also scored for the Lightning, who went 4-1-0 on a season-opening homestand. Tampa Bay has won 12 in a row against the Red Wings.“You get four of five, you have to be happy,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.Detroit, winless at 0-5-2 Brandon Manning Jersey Womens , got a goal from Luke Glendening, and Jimmy Howard stopped 28 shots. It’s the Red Wings’ worst season-opening stretch since opening the 1985-86 season with eight losses and a tie.“It’s not fun, that’s for sure” Howard said. “We’ve just to keep moving along.”The Red Wings were coming off a 7-3 drubbing at Montreal Monday.“The second period at Montreal was a joke,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “We lost our structure totally. I thought we got our structure back, for sure.Howard made a strong save on Stamkos during a 3-on-1 in the third.Killorn made it 3-1 on a late empty-netter.Point opened the scoring 7:33 into the game when Yanni Gourde’s pass went off his skate and pass Howard. Glendening tied it on a rebound at 6:30 of the second.Tampa Bay remains the lone NHL team not allowing a power-play goal, running its season-opening streak to 23 after Detroit went 0 for 5.“Huge PK,” Vasilevskiy said. “I thought we played well.”Tampa Bay right wing Ryan Callahan played for the first time since offseason right shoulder surgery.The Red Wings injury-depleted defensive corps got the return of Trevor Daley, who had an assist after missing four games with a neck injury. Mike Green (virus) and Jonathan Ericsson (upper body) both practiced with the team. Danny DeKeyser (hand) is also out.NOTES: Tampa Bay has also won 12 straight at home against the Red Wings. … Stamkos has an eight-game point streak against Detroit (six goals, 11 points). … Tampa Bay acquired F Mitch Hults from Anaheim in return for future considerations and assigned him to Syracuse of the AHL. C Cory Conacher was reassigned and F Danick Martel sent for a conditional stint to Syracuse. … Red Wings Anthony Mantha is minus-11 on the season.UP NEXTRed Wings: Play Saturday at Florida.Lightning: Start a four-game trip Saturday at Minnesota. DENVER (AP) Anze Kopitar was asked over and over about scoring four goals. All he wanted to do was talk about earning two points. That’s the No. 1 figure on his mind.”I’m playing for the guys in here. Our goal is to make the playoffs Womens Zach Parise Jersey ,” Kopitar said . ”That’s all it comes down to.”Still, it was a pretty special evening for the Los Angeles captain.Kopitar became the first Kings player with a four-goal game since 1993, Jonathan Quick stopped 29 shots and LA picked up another valuable road win by cruising past the Colorado Avalanche 7-1 on Thursday night.Kopitar was so efficient that he picked up his fourth career hat trick with 7:33 remaining in the second period. He added another goal early in the third. This was the first four-goal game by a Kings player since Luc Robitaille accomplished the feat on Nov. 25, 1993, at Quebec.”He’s elite. He’s one of the best players in the league,” said Kopitar’s teammate Nate Thompson, who had two assists. ”I have a first-row seat and it’s fun to watch.”Not if you’re on the other side. The Avalanche simply couldn’t stop him.”He’s a world-class player for a reason,” Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog said. ”He showed that tonight.”Tobias Rieder had two goals and Jake Muzzin scored his first since Feb. 3 for the Kings, who surpassed Anaheim for the third spot in the Pacific Division. Los Angeles improved to 6-0-2 over its last eight road games.Quick allowed an early goal to Mikko Rantanen and was stellar after that in a game that had a playoff feel. Well Cam Ward Jersey Womens , at least early, before the Kings reeled off seven unanswered goals.”They came out pretty hard the first five minutes. … We settled in and played our game, our road game, our team game,” Thompson said. ”I thought we played a pretty complete game.”The Kings beat an Avalanche team that’s 15-3-1 in its last 19 games on home ice. Colorado remains in a wild-card spot with eight games remaining.Time to scoreboard watch?”You’ve got to be careful watching the scoreboard because it’s wasted emotion,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. ”We’re concentrating on what we have to do to get in.”Semyon Varlamov showed signs of fatigue in giving up five goals before being replaced by backup Jonathan Bernier in the second period. Varlamov has appeared in 19 straight games (17 starts) with Bernier sidelined by a concussion. Bernier returned Thursday and allowed two goals.It’s the third time this season the Avs have allowed seven goals.Trailing 3-1, Nathan MacKinnon clanged one off the crossbar seconds into the second period. Moments later, Rieder found himself on a breakaway and beat Varlamov with a wrist shot.That pretty much wrapped things up. About the only drama was Kopitar’s hat-trick quest.He recorded his first hat trick since Feb. 12, 2016 , with a backhander in the second period. Some of the fans at the Pepsi Center littered the ice with hats. He wasn’t done there, though, scoring his fourth on a breakaway.”I just felt all night that the puck was kind of following me around,” Kopitar said. ”It worked out for me tonight.”At 30, Kopitar’s turning in his best statistical season with 86 points.”We’re all happy for him,” Thompson said. ”He’s usually the guy that’s dishing the puck, a pass-first kind of guy. He can score goals, too, apparently. It was a pleasure to watch.”Colorado took a 1-0 lead 3:33 into the game when Gabriel Landeskog kicked a sliding puck over to Rantanen Anders Lee Jersey , who rocketed it into the net. The advantage lasted all of 55 seconds.MacKinnon had an assist to extend his point streak to a career-best 14 games. It was also his 92nd point of the season, the most by an Avalanche player since Joe Sakic had 100 in 2006-07.NOTES: Quick was credited with his fourth assist of the season on Rieder’s goal. … Dustin Brown had two assists. … Avs F Carl Soderberg missed a second straight game with an illness. … D Tyson Barrie had his 11-game point streak snapped. … Rantanen and MacKinnon both have 21 points in March, the most in the NHL.UP NEXTKings: Finish a four-game trip on Saturday in Edmonton.Avalanche: Host Vegas on Saturday.—

campaign Youth Jabrill Peppers Jersey , as the youngest team in the NFL.They will not, however, be starting three 21-year-olds as they were a season ago. DeShone Kizer, David Njoku and Jabrill Peppers were among the youngest players in the league last year, and it showed. Denzel Ward is the only 21-year-old starter, although Antonio Callaway does see some snaps. The youth-infused Browns went winless, which didn’t come as a huge shock despite them having a few chances to win some games.The Oakland Raiders are the league’s oldest team in 2018 White Terrance Mitchell Jersey , and their team’s average age is more than two years higher than Cleveland’s at 27.55.No team ranked youngest in the NFL has won the Super Bowl in the last 12 seasons, according to Football Outsiders’ Snap-Weighed Age rankings. But the Seattle Seahawks were the third-youngest team in the league in 2013, and they took home the Lombardi Trophy. They played that season with a roster age average of 25.9 years old. Green Bay’s 2010 championship team—11th youngest in the NFL—was the only other team during that span that won a title and also finished in the bottom half of the age standings.Cleveland winning the Super Bowl after a winless season would be an all-time great story, but let’s be realistic, it’s probably not happening. These 2018 Browns are not the 2013 Seahawks, and that’s fine. Next season, though , they’ll still be hungry and one of the youngest teams in the league. Next season—as we say every season—or even the season after that, they could have a real shot at becoming a team that defies the norm.There is no set path to building a championship roster, but it’s clear the younger the team, the steeper the climb to the top. The key to the Browns rebuild will be keeping the young players they have collected together in the coming seasons. As they grow together, their seasoning will make the goal of finally bringing Northeast Ohio a Super Bowl title a little more attainable.Daily Dawg Chow: Browns news (10/2/18) Cleveland Browns:“Terrance Mitchell undergoes surgery on broken wrist” (FOX 8) - “Mitchell had surgery Monday morning to repair his broken right wrist. Jackson said he didn’t believe it would be a season-ending injury.”“Hue kidding?

OTTAWA , Ontario (AP) — There was a time when Chris Wideman wondered if he would ever score another NHL goal.Still coming in bunches, in fact.Wideman got his first two goals in nearly a year, Craig Anderson made 36 saves and the Ottawa Senators beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-1 on Saturday.Wideman tore a hamstring last November and missed the rest of the season. The 28-year-old had been without a point in his first four games this season.“The way I look at it now is every game is gravy,” Wideman said. “When I first got hurt, I thought I was done. We put in a lot of hard work with the staff, myself, and I got a lot of support from family and my girlfriend and guys here and buddies around the league so it’s just great to be back.“I was happy to get the first one for sure, and the second was icing on the cake, I guess.”Chris Tierney Youth Matt Nieto Jersey , Mark Stone and Colin White also scored for the Senators, and Matt Duchene, Brady Tkachuk and Thomas Chabot each had two assists.Trevor Lewis scored for the Kings, who will wrap up their four-game trip Monday night in Toronto.Los Angeles’ Jack Campbell made his fourth consecutive start and allowed four goals on 11 shots before being replaced by Peter Budaj. Budaj allowed one goal on 11 shots.“I thought we got off to a good start the first couple of minutes and drew a couple penalties, but didn’t really generate much on the power play,” Kings coach John Stevens said. “Too many 1-on-1 battles being lost around their net that could amount to easy goals and then we had a big hole to dig out of there.”Tierney opened the scoring just over six minutes in by tipping Dylan DeMelo’s shot past Campbell. Wideman pushed in a rebound and Stone added a power-play goal later in the period for a 3-0 lead.“It was a bad start and they capitalized on some opportunities,” Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin said. “We put some pressure on them later, but it was too late.”White made it 4-0 in the second with a wrist shot that ended Campbell’s afternoon. Lewis got the Kings on the board late in the period before Wideman tacked on his second goal midway through the third during a delayed penalty call.“Everybody made their mark on the game,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. “There were blocked shots Mikko Rantanen Jersey , intelligent plays at the right moment, good plays without the puck. Our goaltender was solid so it was a real nice team victory.”NOTES: This was the Kings’ lone visit to Ottawa this season and marked the return of Dion Phaneuf, who was traded to Los Angeles last February after spending parts of three seasons with the Senators. Phaneuf had 13 goals and 41 assists over 154 games with Ottawa. … With Cody Ceci on injury reserve, Ben Harpur made his regular-season debut and led all Ottawa defensemen in ice time. … The Senators were without Ceci (upper body), Ryan Dzingel (lower body) and Alex Formenton (concussion). Jonathan Quick (lower body), Dustin Brown (broken finger), Jonny Brodzinski (shoulder) and Gabriel Vilardi (back) were out for the Kings.UP NEXTKings: Play at Toronto on Monday night.Senators: Host Dallas on Monday night. VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Elias Pettersson did something Thursday that no other Vancouver Canucks first-year player has done since 1999.Pettersson, a 19-year-old Swede , was named the National Hockey League’s rookie of the month for October. He became the first Canuck to earn the honor since Peter Schaefer pulled off the feat 19 years ago.Not bad considering that Pettersson missed six games with a concussion in his first month as an NHLer.Article continues below ...“There’s a lot of good rookies and I’m honored to win it,” Pettersson told reporters after practice at the University of B.C.“I think I started very well, and when I got back (from the concussion) the guys helped me continue to play my game. … I felt like I didn’t miss anything.”Pettersson leads the injury-riddled Canucks (8-6-0) in goals and points heading into Friday’s home game against the Colorado Avalanche (7-4-2). The youngster has seven goals and three assists in just eight games. He already has a pair of two-goal nights.The latest twin-pack came Monday in Vancouver’s 5-2 home-ice win over Minnesota, a team that had won five straight games beforehand. Pettersson scored the winning goal on a one-timer and netted an insurance marker on breakaway, which resulted after he blocked a shot.He has adjusted well to the NHL after concerns were raised about his ability to play center and handle the more physical game prevalent on North America’s smaller rinks than on Europe’s larger ones. For the most part, he has handled the rough going with relative ease. The concussion occurred when he was hit from behind and slammed to the ice by Washington defenseman Mike Matheson, who received a two-game suspension for his misdeeds.Pettersson has also been a mainstay at center, his natural position, after Green contemplated starting the season with him on the wing to help him acclimatize to the NHL.“We were hopeful that he would be able to play at a decent level and obviously hopeful that he could play center Patrick Roy Jersey ,” said Green.“The fact that he’s picked up the position over here — as quick as he has — has really shown to me that he has good understanding of the game. … That’s the part of the game that’s hard to grasp and to teach, and with him we haven’t had to worry about that.”On Friday, the Canucks coach and his charges will likely have to worry about Colorado’s top line of Mikko Rantanen, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog. All three rank among the NHL’s top scorers. Accordingly, the Avs are contending for first place in the Central Division.The Calgary Flames managed to keep the trio largely in check Thursday night, coming back to beat the Avs 6-5. Although Avs coach Jared Bednar does not have to worry about his top unit most nights, he has concerns about his other lines due to injuries to Tyson Jost, J.T. Compher and Sven Andrighetto, who are relied upon for secondary scoring. As a result Womens Samuel Girard Jersey , Bednar wants some younger players to shine.“It’s a great opportunity for a lot of those guys,” Bednar told reporters Thursday morning in Calgary.Bednar singled out center Vladislav Kamenev, who moved up to the second line for Thursday’s contest, as one player who needs to provide more offensive production.“I agree with that,” said Kamenev, 22, who has logged eight games. “I have to play better offensively — be with the puck more maybe and make plays. (With guys injured) I have to use that chance.”He did Thursday night, scoring his first NHL career goal.

Authentic Terrance Mitchell Jersey , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Browns fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.The Week polls are in, so let’s look at the results to see how optimistic Browns fans are getting!How confident are you in the direction of the team? Last week: 80 percent confidenceThis week, 53% of fans voted for their confidence in the direction of the Browns, a 27% decline from last week. It’s the first time fans have dipped below 80% this season, and a big game against the Steelers will likely swing the vote significantly up or down this week.The Browns have now fallen behind the Steelers’ 57% confidence and the Ravens’ 68% confidence, but are still well ahead of the Bengals’ 21% confidence.Will the Browns make the playoffs?The Browns are 2-4-1 Womens David Njoku Jersey , which obviously isn’t ideal. But within the division, Cleveland is 1-0-1 — they haven’t lost. They get the Steelers for the second time this week, and a win there could really start turning heads again. Despite that fact, Cleveland fans aren’t buying it. 92% of fans voted “no,” the Browns will not make the playoffs this year.Will the Browns win or lose in Week 8?Odds: Steelers are 8-point favoritesDawgs By Nature FanPulse: Steelers by 5Bucs Nation FanPulse: Steelers by 10Browns fans are even projecting the team to lose to the Steelers this week, by an average of 5 points.Tyrod Taylor, taking risks and throwing the ball down the field There’s a slightly common misconception that quarterback Tyrod Taylor is a “safe” player who makes smart decisions and doesn’t take many risks down the field.While that may have been somewhat true in the past, Taylor’s “avoidance” of throwing the ball downfield is “overstated Womens Nick Chubb Jersey ,” according to Football Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz.“Last year, Taylor threw 16 percent of passes over 15 yards downfield,” Schatz wrote in response to the Dawgs By Nature Staff’s questionnaire sent to Football Outsiders. “That ranked 24th among 35 quarterbacks with at least 200 attempts. Below average, but not last.“You know who was last? Aaron Rodgers.”Tell me that’s not at least a little bit surprising. When you think of Rodgers, you marvel in your mind about his big arm and ability to make the big plays down the field.And there is another common misconception that throwing the football down the field is the only way to successfully execute a passing game. But that’s not entirely true, and it’s not an automatic precursor for success.Schatz highlighted a player we’re all familiar with who finished third in the NFL on such “deep” attempts last season.DeShone Kizer constantly threw the ball down the field under Hue Jackson’s play-calling last season, and we all know how that turned out. It blew up in flames, leaving tons of question marks about Jackson’s judgment in managing his rookie signal-caller.While Taylor’s probably not going to go deep as often Authentic Duke Johnson Jersey , hopefully because Todd Haley doesn’t put his quarterback in that position, the Browns are loaded with potential playmakers who can stretch a football field.Throwing the ball deep is essential to maintaining balance and keeping defenses honest. That much we do know, which means the long ball is more a tool than it is the entire toolbox.“Trust me, Taylor will make enough deep attempts to keep the offense on schedule and keep opponents from constantly playing both safeties in the box,” Schatz concluded.The best we can hope for this season is the Browns field a balanced offense that takes measured and calculated risks. Taylor seems to be a guy who is capable of playing within his system and taking those shots when he has to.After seeing glimpses of the passing game in Week 1, then the rushing attack in Week 2, we’ll hopefully learn more about how the Browns offense will operate as their starters are likely going to play the entire first half against the Eagles this week.

von liny195 20.12.2018 08:36 , the national media was enamored with the Buccaneers. One 5-11 season and one three-game suspension for Jameis Winston later, that is no longer the case. After Sporting News predicted a 1-15 record for Tampa Bay on Thursday, Bleacher Report’s Kyle Newport came out with his current NFL Power Rankings on Friday. Based on the rankings, it’s clear that Newport isn’t expecting too much out of the Bucs either. Out of the league’s 32 teams, he ranked the Bucs at No. 29 to start the month of August. Here’s what was said in the short blurb about the team: What? Those two sentences barely scratch the surface of where Tampa Bay is right now. Yes, the Bucs will miss Winston for the first three games of the season. They’ll see three very tough opponents in three weeks. But to rank them at No. 29 based on a three-game suspension? That seems awfully short-sighted. The offseason appeared to be a successful one for general manager Jason Licht. On the offensive side, Ryan Jensen joined the team at center, which allowed Ali Marpet to slide back over to guard. Donovan Smith and Demar Dotson still occupy the tackle positions, while Caleb Benenoch Youth Carlton Davis Jersey , Leonard Wester and Alex Cappa look for big roles in 2018. Rookie Ronald Jones joins Peyton Barber in the backfield as Tampa Bay looks to revamp the run game. For whoever takes snaps under center, the weapons are still plentiful. Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, Chris Godwin, Adam Humphries, Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard are all back.Along the defensive line, the Bucs cut Robert Ayers Jr. and Chris Baker in addition to letting Clinton McDonald walk away after his contract expired. Enter Beau Allen, Mitch Unrein, Vita Vea White Peyton Barber Jersey , Vinny Curry and Jason Pierre-Paul. The newcomers join Gerald McCoy, William Gholston, Noah Spence and Will Clarke. The linebackers are as solid as ever, while rookies M.J. Stewart, Carlton Davis and Jordan Whitehead join the secondary. Brent Grimes is back on a one-year deal and Vernon Hargreaves III is looking to rebound after a rough 2017. The defense should be much improved, as long as Mike Smith uses the talent in a proper manner.From top to bottom, the Buccaneers’ roster looks much better than it did a year ago. To ignore the changes in favor of focusing solely on a suspension seems like an odd way to determine a team’s spot in a power rankings list. If Newport isn’t impressed by the changes, he could say so. However, the reasoning behind his ranking implies that the Bucs are a bad team based on a suspension of their quarterback. Based on talent alone Youth Chris Godwin Jersey , it’s hard to see Tampa Bay deserving such a low position. Newport ranked the Jets, Bills and Browns immediately ahead of the Bucs. Even with a formidable defense, the Jets are far from a finished product. The Bills made the playoffs a year ago, but ditched quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of A.J. McCarron or first round pick Josh Allen. They are bound to take a step back, especially if anything comes out of the allegations against running back LeSean McCoy. Then, there’s the Browns. They had an impressive offseason, but are still less than a year removed from going 0-16. All three of those teams are currently better than the Bucs?Arguments can be made for the Bucs to be a low-20s type of team at the moment, sure. But to have them ranked above only the Bears, Dolphins and Colts seems like hot take for the sake of having a hot take. Tampa Bay has a lot of doubters right now White Chris Conte Jersey , but the team seems united and focused on proving everyone wrong. Will they? We’ll find out soon enough.No QB controversy for Bucs week one Two preseason games in the books, two to go. Unlike the first where Ryan Fitzpatrick was on fire, there were some struggles in Tennessee for the bearded wonder. For Jameis Winston and Ryan Griffin, there were no troubles at all.But don’t read into that too much.We know that come week four, Winston is the guy. Period. End of discussion. However, there are starting to be some rumbles and murmurings that Griffin should get the chance to start given his lights out performances in both preseason games.Whoa. Just calm down.Sign up for Bucs Nation FanPulse!Griffin has had the benefit of playing against third stringers and players that won’t be on rosters come regular season. Fitz is still going against the starters. There’s a big difference in skill level between the two and that needs to be remembered when comparing the two.Koetter spoke about the quarterback situation on Monday and stood firm that Fitzpatrick is the guy and there’s little to nothing that will change that;You can’t expect Griffin to come in and do what he’s done in the preseason against third team defenses with little-to-no game planning involved and replicate those results against first team defenses in New Orleans or home against Philadelphia or Pittsburgh when they install a game plan and prepare for the Bucs.The best bet to tread enough water and not be in an inescapable hole by the time Winston returns is to stick with the veteran - and that’s exactly what they’re going to do.

Talk about your dramatic wins.The Minnesota Wild might not have a better win this season than their first Anders Lee Jersey , a 4-3 overtime decision Thursday night over the Chicago Blackhawks that featured a short-handed equalizer in the last 25 seconds of regulation and a game-winning breakaway goal from Jason Zucker.“If this is how the year is going to be, I won’t have any hair left at the end of it,” Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau quipped.Article continues below ...With a two-point game in their pocket for the first time, the Wild try to push above .500 Saturday in a late-afternoon clash with the Carolina Hurricanes that finishes a three-game homestand.Minnesota (1-1-1) came into the game against Chicago looking for offense. The Wild found it, outshooting the Blackhawks 46-30 after being outshot 82-51 in the first two games. They finally sustained puck possession and drove play.Chicago goalie Cam Ward made a spate of outstanding saves that probably prevented Minnesota from scoring six or seven goals, yet the Wild were in danger of losing again after Mikael Granlund took a holding minor at 18:43 of the third period.But Minnesota took advantage of the Blackhawks’ inability to maintain puck control. Eric Staal and Zack Parise pumped shots at Ward, who saved them both. However, defenseman Ryan Suter, who rarely ventures below the point on offense, got to the top of the blue paint and poked home a rebound to force overtime.“Just desperation … just trying to get to the net and help out Andrew Ladd Jersey ,” Suter said.Zucker wrapped things up in overtime with his second goal of the night, capping one of the best games for anyone in the league during the first week-plus. He finished with three points, a plus-four plus-minus rating and put 10 shots on net.He was a prime reason why the Wild tied their fourth-highest shot total in a game and equaled their second-most shots on goal in a home game.“I wasn’t happy with how I played the first two games,” Zucker said. “I thought I had some good spurts. It just wasn’t good enough. I know the way I can play and tonight was much more like it. I think everybody would have said the same thing about the first two games.”While Minnesota found some footing, Carolina (3-0-1) has been on solid ground from the opener, when it outshot the New York Islanders 46-20 but lost 2-1 in overtime. It has won three straight since then, including a 5-3 decision Tuesday night over Vancouver.Under first-year coach Rod Brind’Amour, the Hurricanes have found their scoring touch, registering 17 goals, the third-highest total through four games in franchise history.“We want to play that way offensively Anthony Beauvillier Jersey ,” he said. “That’s the way we have to play. We have good talent, and we have to use it to our advantage. Now we have to get better at the other end. I think there’s a lot of room for improvement, which is a positive that we’re still finding ways to get wins.” DALLAS — Last Tuesday, the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Dallas Stars met at Nationwide Arena with Columbus ending the Stars’ six-game Eastern Conference road trip with a 4-1 defeat.Dallas (9-6-2), which lost 5-4 in overtime to Nashville on Saturday at home, finished that road trip 3-2-1, taking seven of a possible 12 points.However, the Stars, who are 6-2-1 at home, would like to exact a bit of payback on the Blue Jackets on Monday night when they match up again Authentic Brock Nelson Jersey , this time at American Airlines Center.Article continues below ...And with the certain return of forward Alexander Radulov, who has played just once in the past 10 games, Stars rookie coach Jim Montgomery expects his team to have ample energy, something Radulov brings Dallas in big quantities.“It’s missed a lot and also just his intensity and the pace that he plays with,” Montgomery said after practice Sunday. “He brings people into the fight with him and it’s clearly something we miss when he’s not there.”Radulov has been a great complement to captain Jamie Benn and perennial All-Star Tyler Seguin, who has goals in back-to-back games, when he plays on the Stars’ top line.The Stars should also get fellow forward Brett Ritchie, out the past four games with an illness, back on Monday.Dallas will still be without veteran defenseman Marc Methot (lower body injury), but Montgomery takes solace in knowing that young defensemen Ben Gleason Cal Clutterbuck Jersey , impressive in his Saturday NHL debut, and Joel Hanley, who made his Stars debut against the Predators, are more than up to the challenge.“He (Gleason) did everything with his head up. He made really good decisions,” Montgomery said of Gleason. “They (Gleason and Hanley) both showed well.”Stars veteran center Jason Spezza could register his 900th career point against Columbus, which would make him the seventh active player to reach that milestone.Columbus (9-6-2) lost 5-4 to the New York Rangers in a shootout on Saturday at home.Despite leaving a point on the table, Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella couldn’t fault much about his team’s play against the Rangers.“Certainly, the odd-man rushes early on in the game hurt us and some turnovers, but other than that we played a really good game,” Tortorella said.The Blue Jackets got three assists from defenseman Seth Jones Eric Tangradi Jersey Womens , who grew up in the Dallas area.Columbus has a six-game unbeaten streak (4-0-2) against Dallas and the Blue Jackets haven’t lost to the Stars in Dallas since a 5-1 defeat on December 15, 2015.The Blue Jackets are 5-2-1 on the road but Tortorella knows that if his team is to continue their run of good form against Dallas, they will need to limit the Stars’ offensive chances.“We have created a number of chances, but we’ve given up too much,” Tortorella said after the loss to the Rangers. “The biggest thing we have to cut down on is the ones that we give for free. We’ve got to be a smarter hockey team.”
