LOS ANGELES -- Matt Ryan had barely sat down to begin his usual post-kickoff, pregame preparations when he had to rush onto the field. Nikita Kucherov Lightning Jersey Authentic . A Rams rookie had fumbled the opening return, and the Atlanta Falcons had the ball at the 3.It was a pleasant surprise, said Ryan, who threw a touchdown pass on the first snap.The whole day was a series of fun surprises for the Falcons, whose playoff chase is picking up steam.Ryan passed for 237 yards and three touchdowns and Atlanta forced five turnovers in a 42-14 victory over the spiraling Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.Deion Jones returned an interception 33 yards for a touchdown, and Vic Beasley forced a fumble by Jared Goff and returned it for another TD during Atlantas comprehensive pummeling of the Rams (4-9), who have lost four straight and eight of nine in their increasingly miserable homecoming season.Tevin Coleman caught a TD pass and rushed for another score for the Falcons (8-5), who opened up a 42-point lead in the third quarter and stayed atop the NFC South alongside Tampa Bay with their fourth win in six games.This is the kind of game where it shows you that all the hard work youve been putting in is paying off, said Beasley, whose three-sack performance was punctuated by that remarkable strip-sack and score. Its definitely a great feeling, especially for a defense thats been giving up a lot of points. To go out there and dominate them just shows what we can be as a defense.Even without injured receivers Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, Atlanta had little trouble from the opening kickoff, which was fumbled by Rams rookie Michael Thomas .Justin Hardy immediately caught a TD pass, and the day never got better for the Rams and embattled coach Jeff Fisher, who tied Dan Reeves NFL record with his 165th career coaching loss.Its offense, Fisher said after the Rams put up 312 yards and didnt score until the fourth quarter. Were not moving the ball consistently. Were not converting on third downs, and were not scoring points. Its the problem.Todd Gurley rushed for 61 yards and eventually scored the Rams first points in one of the teams ugliest performances of their 10th consecutive losing season.It looked like a middle school offense out there, Gurley said.Goff went 24 of 41 for 235 yards with two interceptions and a fumble. The No. 1 overall draft pick fell to 0-4 as a starter with a trip to Seattle looming Thursday.If there was ever a game to put behind you quickly, its this one, said Goff, who scored his first NFL rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. Were not having fun. Were not enjoying this. Its awful.RYANS RECORDRyan surpassed 4,000 yards passing for the sixth consecutive season, tying Peyton Manning for the second-longest such streak in NFL history.HOME WOESFisher was booed heavily in the Coliseum, where the Rams havent won since their home opener Sept. 18. The Rams have scored only five touchdowns in five games at the Coliseum -- one fewer than the Falcons managed on Sunday.BREAKING IT OPENColeman scored on a short screen pass on Atlantas first snap of the second quarter. The rout began moments later when Jones made an exceptional leaping interception and returned it down the Atlanta sideline for a score. Ryan hit a wide-open Taylor Gabriel for a 64-yard TD pass on the Falcons opening drive of the second half.EFFICIENCYAtlanta, the NFLs highest-scoring team, needed just 286 yards of offense to post its fourth 40-point game of the season. For us to be plus-5 in the turnover margin, that was the key, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said.INTERESTING STARTThomas was filling in for regular kickoff returner Benny Cunningham, who missed the game with a neck injury. Ryan hit Hardy with a TD pass on the first snap. Thomas fielded the next kickoff cleanly, drawing a Bronx cheer from Coliseum fans.INJURIESFalcons: Jones couldnt play due to turf toe, and Sanu is out with a groin injury.Rams: Cunningham is also their backup running back, and his replacement at that spot, Malcolm Brown, also fumbled in the third quarter. ... S Maurice Alexander stayed down for a long time after a hard hit in the third quarter. He eventually stood and sat on a cart to leave the field. He was ruled out with a concussion. ...

Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. ARCALIS, Andorra -- The Tour de France did more than challenge the peloton with its punishing menu of Pyreneans climbs on Sunday. The extreme conditions that suddenly switched from searing heat and humidity to rain and hail and a huge drop in temperature showcased what resilience is required to race in the world biggest and hardest bike race.Whether British race leader and defending champion Chris Froome (Sky) wins a third Tour title or not, the 184.5-kilometer ninth stage from Vielha Val DAran in Spain to Andorra Arcalis will be remembered for a long time -- especially for how the riders up front in separate battles for the stage win and overall classification still fought so fiercely despite the harsh conditions.Froome, who defended the yellow leaders jersey he took on Saturday with his Stage 8 win to Bagnères-de-Luchon, summed up what the experience he and his rivals experienced as the conditions suddenly shifted as they rode up the last of five mountains to the finish.That was a tough stage and the weather made it even tougher, Froome said after. One second there, we were pouring water over our heads and ice socks down the back, and then the next minute we literally had ice falling from the sky with the hail stones and the temperatures dropped right down to 10 degrees. So it was from one extreme to another.The day was still a success for Froome, with his overall lead again reflecting his teams brilliant work to control the stage before the finale, as much as his ability to account for a number of attacks on the last climb to Arcalis when the conditions were at their worst.The stage was won by Dutchman Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpacin) with a daring solo attack that saw him cross the finish line in virtual darkness 38 seconds clear of Portugals Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida) and Polands Rafael Majka (Tinkoff), who finished at the same time as Costa, then a string of other riders who were remnants from an earlier 20-rider breakaway.Froome was 11th at 6:35 and finished with Briton Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange) in 10th and Colombian Nairo Quintana (Movistar) in 12th at the same time.Then, two seconds back, were three more riders who had been with Froome, Yates and Quintana up until the last 50 metres of the stage: Australian Richie Porte (BMC) in13th, Irelands Dan Martin (Etixx-QuickStep) in 14th, and Spaniard Jesus Herrada (Movistar).As expected, the Queen Stage of the three in the Pyrenees impacted overall places.Froome still leads overall by 16 seconds on second-place Yates, while Martin has moved up from fourth overall to third at 19 seconds, Quintana from sixth to fourth at 23 seconds and Frenchman Romain Bardet (Ag2r-La Mondiale) from ninth to sixth at 44 seconds after a day that saw him finish 17th at 6:56 but benefit from time losses by several higher-placed riders.The worst to fare was Alberto Contador (Tinkoff), the 2007 and 2009 Tour champion who abandoned with 100 kilometers to go despite showing signs that he might have recovered from his injuries in crashes on stages one and two by getting into an early break.Australian Richie Porte (BMC), who began the stage in 18th place overall at 2:08, is now 14th overall; however, he was at 2:10 after the stage in which he and Martin were the prrincipal attackers in the yellow jersey group on the final climb. Authentic Customized Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys. But left to lament were Spaniard Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), who finished 23rd at 7:17 after getting in to a break with Valverde and fell from fifth overall at 19 seconds to 10th at 1:01; Italian Fabio Aru (Astana), who was 27th at 7:35 and dropped from seventh at 23 seconds to 13th at 1:23, and American Tejay van Garderen (BMC), who was 21st on the stage at the same time as Valverde, fell from eighth overall at 23 seconds to 11th and also at 1:01.It was long and super-hot and then it got super-cold at the finish, Van Garderen said. It was just a hard day off the back of a hard day, so I think Richie [Porte] and I did pretty well. Richie was obviously a lot better than me, but we just look forward. Its been nine hard days of racing, so fatigue definitely starts going into play, but its still the first week.The first real mountain day of the Tour I always tend to struggle [in] more than the other ones. So I think it can only get better from here. Any one of the stages could be an opportunity to gain back time, the mountains, the time trials, so Ill just take it as it comes.Froome had in fact hoped to gain time on the final climb Sunday, but when the rally of attacks came from the likes of Porte, Martin and Yates, he found himself needing to reel them in and be satisfied to just finish with his rivals and preserve the lead he has.However, he expected an attack from Quintana, his runner-up in 2013 and last year, and said he was surprised that the Colombian failed to react, other than follow him.I was waiting for his attack all the way to the last kilometre, he said. In the last kilometre I thought, He hasnt attacked, that he was saving it for one big move. Id like to think he was on his limit. It was a tough day. He stuck to my wheel like glue by the look of it.Froome will by no means leave the Pyrenees feeling a third Tour win is a fait accompli. Like all in the peloton, he will welcome the first rest day of the Tour on Monday.However, awaiting is Thursdays Stage 12 finish at the summit of Mont Ventoux, which is followed by the 37.5km Stage 13 time trial the next day, and some brutal days in the Alps.Before the Tours start, Froome rated this Tour campaign as his hardest. He reiterated that on Sunday, saying: I feel this will be the biggest battle of my career. I figure that is what it is turning out to be. By no means did I expect it would be easy and I would ride away from everyone. The level is higher. I am going to have to fight for every second.Froome is expecting he will also need his team to continue riding as it did on Sunday.It was a great day for us, happy to still be in yellow after such a tough two days like that. My teammates did such a good job ... They just took control of the race, even when we were under a lot of pressure at the start with Valverde and Contador going in that break, he added. We waited for our guys to come back after the first climb and then we went after them. The guys have ridden so, so well. I owe it to the that I am still in the yellow this evening. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

For Golden State, 73 is irrelevant. Jaromir Jagr Jersey . Only one number matters, and its 16.The Warriors chase of being the greatest team in NBA history last season fell short in a big way, when the team that posted the best regular-season record of all time blew a 3-1 lead in the finals and lost the title to Cleveland.So entering this season, any talk of setting another win record -- even after adding Kevin Durant -- would be foolish. The only thing the Warriors are interested in is getting the 16 postseason wins that would secure a second championship in three years, and theyll again be the consensus pick to get out of the Western Conference for the third straight season.Theyre as good as it gets in the NBA, said new Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton, who most recently was a Warriors assistant.Much of the look of the West has changed. Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett -- all champions, all future Hall of Famers -- are now all retired as well. And theres new coaches in Sacramento (Dave Joerger), Memphis (David Fizdale), Minnesota (Tom Thibodeau) and Houston (Mike DAntoni), along with Walton taking over for the Lakers.But the targets in the West, they remain the same. Its still the Warriors, then San Antonio, and from there it might be anyones guess.A look at the West, in predicted order of finish:---PLAYOFF BOUND1. Golden State -- Warriors need 60 victories this season to be NBAs first club to win 200 in a three-year stretch since Chicago (1996-98).2. San Antonio -- Until proven otherwise, the Spurs should be considered a very viable contender. Theyll pace themselves until playoff time.3. Utah -- Yes, the Jazz wont have Gordon Hayward for a while. No, this isnt a stretch, not with the highly capable Quin Snyder in charge.4. L.A. Clippers -- The Clippers know this has to be the season. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan still should create a lot of fear.5. Portland -- Surprises last season, the Blazers wont surprise anyone this time around. All-Star snub victim Damian Lillard is among the elite.6. Oklahoma City -- You may have heard, the Thunder lost Durant to Golden State. Well see what a motivated Russell Westbrook does.7. Minnesota -- Its time for the Timberwolves to break through, and with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins the best is still yet to come.8. Memphis -- New coach Fizdale gets $153 million man Mike Conley to run his offense, which is quite the perk for any rookie head coach.---IN THE MIX9. Dallas -- Dirk Nowitzki is 38 years old and still averages 18 points per game. Big question: How will Harrison Barnes handle being a max guy?10. Houston -- Questions about defense are the only reason why the Rockets arent higher. If -- if -- what DAntoni does works, look out.11. New Orleans -- The Pelicans are already ailing, and the season hasnt even started. Keeping Anthony Davis on the floor is an absolute must.---FACING LONG ODDS12. Sacramento -- The Kings new arena is fantastic and DeMarcus Cousins is a superstar, though his new love for 3s actually helps defenses.13. L.A. Lakers -- The last season in which the Lakers were without Bryant was 1995-96. How long ago? Magic Johnson was on that team.14. Denver -- Danilo Gallinari is 28, and hes one of the oldest guys on this rebuilding team. Rookie Jamal Murray might be a big hit in Denver.15. Phoenix -- The Suns havent been to the playoffs in six seasons, and that streak seems likely to reach seven. Earl Watson has a tough job.---WHAT TO KNOWSPURS FOR 50: The Spurs won 50 games in each of Duncans seasons (excluding the 1998-99 season, which was only 50 games). Duncan may be retired, but the Spurs still seem like a lock to not just win 50 again but also reach the playoffs for what would be the 20th straight season and the 27th time in the last 28 years.BEAT THE EAST: The elite teams in the West feasted on Eastern Conference teams last season. Oklahoma City went 18-12 against the East, the Clippers went 22-8, the Spurs were 24-6 and the Warriors were 27-3 -- that is, until the NBA Finals, when they went 3-4 against Cleveland.STRANGE SEASON: Houston got in the playoffs last year at 41-41. Dont expect that to happen again. The last time a .500 record was good enough for a spot on the West postseason bracket was 1999. Since then, theres been 14 seasons in which a team went .500 or better and still missed the West playoffs.YOUNG MVPs: Theres been plenty of instances of two former MVPs being on the same team, but the pairing of Durant and Stephen Curry in Golden State marks the first time its happened when both players were under 30. Its also the first time back-to-back MVPs (Durant in 2013-14, Curry in 2014-15) became teammates since Charles Barkley and Hakeem Olajuwon did in Houston in the mid-1990s.POWER PACKED: Over the last five seasons, the teams with the most regular-season wins, in order, are San Antonio (292), Oklahoma City (266), the Clippers (262) and Golden State (261) -- all West teams. Eastern Conference club Miami is No. 5 in that span, with 251.---Follow AP Basketball Writer Tim Reynolds on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/ByTimReynolds Marc-Andre Fleury Penguins Jersey .

ATLANTA -- Matt Wislers recent difficulties have taken another turn for the worse.The Braves right-hander is headed to the minor leagues to see if he can rediscover his slider.I didnt pitch very well the last month and a half, so I definitely know Ive earned the demotion, Wisler said. I know theres nothing they can do about that. Its on me. So Ive got to go fight, go back down there and try to work my way back up.Maikel Franco, Aaron Altherr and Tommy Joseph homered off Wisler in Atlantas 7-5 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night.Wisler (4-11) has allowed nine homers in his past four starts and 16 in his past 10 starts. Its a big decline for a pitcher who opened the season as the No. 2 starter behind Julio Teheran.He has struggled to make pitches from the stretch and too often hangs his slider over the plate.The big thing for me will be focusing on the stretch and getting guys out in the stretch, Wisler said.Altherr was activated from the disabled list after missing the first 103 games of the season with a broken left wrist. He went 3 for 4 with two RBI.The Phillies took a 5-0 lead in the first on Francos 19th homer, a three-run shot, Josephs 14th homer and a run that scored on second baseman Jace Petersons fielding error.Altherrs two-run shot in the fifth made it 7-0.Atlanta, with the worst record in the major leagues, dropped to 14-37 at home.The Braves cut the lead to 7-3 in the bottom half of the fifth on Freddie Freemans RBI double, Adonis Garcias RBI single and Anthony Reckers sacrifice fly.Philadelphia closer Jeanmar Gomez earned his 27th save in 30 chances, but it was a shaky appearance. The first two batters reached. Erick Aybar grounded into a double play, but Gordon Beckham followed with an RBI single to make it 7-5.Gomez struck out Peterson to end it with a runner on firrst. Bryan Trottier Jersey. Nola (6-9) gave up eight hits, three runs, three walks and struck out five in five innings. He began the game 0-5 with a 10.61 ERA in his previous seven starts before snapping a career-high, five-game losing streak.Nola didnt exactly inspire confidence in manager Pete Mackanin.Hes not the same guy, Mackanin said. Hes just struggling with command once again. Hes not dotting his fastball like he normally does. And his curveball is erratic. He needs to get back on track.Wisler allowed seven hits, two walks and seven runs -- six earned. He struck out three.Over his past 10 starts, Wisler is 2-6 with a 7.71 ERA and 16 homers allowed. Wislers 11 losses are second-most in the NL behind Philadelphias Jerad Eickhoff.Once he goes down there and attacks hitters and makes that breaking ball go down and away instead of down the middle, hell be back here with a vengeance, Freeman said.Garcias RBI double in the sixth off David Hernandez cut the lead to 7-4.The Phillies have won five in a row against Atlanta.TRAINERS ROOMPhillies: Altherr took OF Peter Bourjos spot on the 25-man roster. Bourjos was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right shoulder.Braves: Interim Braves manager Brian Snitker said RHP Arodys Vizcaino, on the disabled list with a strained oblique, is playing catch but still hasnt thrown off a mound. There is no immediate timetable for the closers return.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Vince Velasquez (8-2) has faced the Braves once, giving up six hits and four runs in a no-decision on May 12.Braves: RHP Tyrell Jenkins (0-2) struggled in his first start Sunday at Colorado, but the rookie has a 1.93 ERA in 4 2/3 innings of relief against Philadelphia. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Editors note: Charlie Creme, Graham Hays and Mechelle Voepel each vote to determine espnWs national player of the week, which is awarded every week of the womens college basketball season. Darren ODay Jersey .For seven quarters of basketball over the past seven days, Temples Feyonda Fitzgerald put together a really good week. It was the eighth quarter she played that set her apart.From DePaul. And from the rest of the country.Temples Fitzgerald is espnWs player of the week after the senior guard totaled 44 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and seven steals in victories against No. 17 DePaul and at Rutgers. Temples win over the Blue Demons was its first against a ranked nonconference opponent in nearly a decade, since a win against Purdue in 2007 when Fitzgerald was in middle school.Add those results to a win the previous weekend against Villanova, a game in which Fitzgerald scored 20 points, and the Owls have three consecutive victories against teams from traditionally bigger leagues. That is one fewer than they earned the past three seasons combined.But if Fitzgerald was a lonely source of offensive optimism in Saturdays somewhat dour 48-37 win at Rutgers -- she scored 19 points in 40 minutes to help the Owls move to 7-3 -- her fourth quarter against DePaul made the week.Fitzgerald led all scorers with 25 points in the 84-74 victory over the Blue Demons, with both the scoring distinction and the result impressive enough against the likes of Jessica January. Each was made all the more remarkable by the fact Fitzgerald entered the final quarter with just 10 points.She scored seven points in the first half as teammate Alliya Butts shot the Owls into contention when the teams traded big quarters. Then a lot of work from Donnaizha Fountain and Ruth Sherrill turned a one-point halftime deficit into a small third-quarter advantage. But with that lead at just two points, Fitzgerald hit a 3-pointer with 8 seconds left in the third quarter to put the Owls up 55-50. She was just getting started.Fitzgerald engineered a 5-0 run all of her own early in the fourth quarter, capped by a three-point play that pushed the lead to 12 points. When the Blue Demons made one attempt to rally, Fitzgerald hit a 3-pointer that wiped out the push. When a late surge by DePaul cut the deficit to single digits, she hit two free throws to push it back to double digits. When Temples lead twice dipped to seven points, she again knocked down free throws. She attempted nine free throws in the quarter and hit eight.It was just over a year ago that Fitzgerald scored a career-best 32 points in a win against Florida. Yet she was reminded that points are relative earlier this month when it took her 27 field goal attempts to produce 29 points in a loss at Hampton.

The New York Islanders and alternate captain Cal Clutterbuck have agreed to a five-year extension through the 2022-23 season, the team announced Friday. Wholesale Bears Jerseys .A source told ESPNs Pierre LeBrun that the deal is worth $17.5 million, with an average annual value of $3.5 million per season.Clutterbuck, who is in his ninth NHL season, has two goals and seven assists for the Islanders this season. For his career, he has 98 goals and 79 assists.The Islanders acquired Clutterbuck in a trade with the Minnesota Wild during the 2013 NHL draft. He also represented Team Canada at the 2011 World Championships. Cheap Pernell McPhee Jersey .

With their top three point guards and Kobe Bryant all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on Friday before their home game against Minnesota. DAVIE, Fla. -- Its tough to find anything the Miami Dolphins do well, and that includes bathing.Rookie guard Laremy Tunsil missed the teams latest loss because he hurt his ankle when he slipped in the shower at the team hotel several hours before kickoff, coach Adam Gase said Monday.Its like one of those one-in-a-thousand or one-in-a-million type deals, Gase said.Tunsils reaction to his mishap?Im sure its a cross between embarrassment and, `Really, Im missing a game because of this? Gase said.So it goes for the Dolphins, who are 1-4 and underdogs at home Sunday against Pittsburgh. The start under first-year coach Gase is worse than any in three-plus seasons under predecessor Joe Philbin.If not for a missed field goal by woeful Cleveland on the final play of regulation in Week 3, the Dolphins would be the NFLs only winless team.Theyre bad enough as it is. Sundays 30-17 home loss against Tennessee was a new low, with the Titans gaining more yards on the ground (235) than the Dolphins gained altogether (200).The offense totaled eight first downs, and for the third time this season scored a single touchdown. Beleaguered Ryan Tannehill was jeered like never before in his five NFL seasons, and six sacks amplified criticism he holds the ball too long and has poor pocket awareness.Bad blocking -- a staple of the offense for years -- continues to be a problem. The issue was compounded against Tennessee by the absence of both starters on the left side, Tunsil and tackle Branden Albert, who was sidelined by a stomach virus.Gase knew during the week he would be without Albert. The coach found out Sunday morning that Tunsil would be out, too.Im driving to the game, and Im with our offensive line coach, Gase said. He gets a phone call, and I hear him talking on the phone, and Im like,, `Whos he talking toIts uncertain how long Tunsil will be sidelined, but hes not on crutches and is able to walk, Gase said. Cheap Chicago Bears Jerseys. .Tunsil became the biggest story of this years NFL draft when a bizarre video was posted on his Twitter account showing him smoking from a gas mask connected to a bong. He had been projected as a possible No. 1 overall pick and instead fell to Miami with the 13th choice.When asked if sobriety was an issue regarding the ankle injury, Gase said: The guy was taking a shower and slipped.Tunsil hasnt talked to the media since his mishap.Nobody wants to deal with that situation, teammate Jermon Bushrod said. Its not fun for him. Its not fun for us.While Tunsil is in limbo, Albert said he expects to be back at practice Wednesday. The Dolphins have yet to put all five first-team offensive linemen on the field at the same time, which has contributed to Tannehills struggles.Gase has remained supportive of his quarterback, and noted Tannehill was hit on nine of 18 plays when he dropped back Sunday.Im supposed to blame him for that? Gase said. I get a look at the whole picture. Im calling the plays. I know what its supposed to look like, and its not looking like that right now as far as whats going on around him.When we start cleaning some things up and we give him a chance to perform at the level that I think hes going to perform ... if he doesnt do it, thats one thing.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. Ike Davis Rangers Jersey . -- Miami Hurricanes freshman Dewan Huell learned the day before Wednesdays game against Rutgers that he would be making his first collegiate start.I went to sleep happy, he said, and woke up even happier.Huell was still smiling after the game. The 6-foot-11 Miami native had 14 points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes, and the Hurricanes scored 17 consecutive points in the second half to beat previously undefeated Rutgers in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, 73-61.With more than 20 friends and relatives in the crowd, Huell scored in double figures for the fifth time this season and had a couple of baskets worthy of video replays.I was very impressed with Dewans acrobatic, athletic ability to score near the rim, Miami coach Jim Larranaga said.Huell had five offensive rebounds. Another freshman, Bruce Brown, had nine rebounds and 11 points, including a 3-point play with less than two minutes left to stop a late Rutgers run.Teammate Davon Reed totaled 18 points and six rebounds for Miami (5-2), which bounced back from consecutive losses last week.The Scarlet Knights (6-1) had been off to their best start since their Final Four season in 1975-76, but they hadnt faced a team with the Hurricanes talent.Are we ready for this kind of game? Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell said. Probably not.The Scarlet Knights came into the game third in the nation in rebounding margin, but the Hurricanes outrebounded them 44-30.The emphasis to this game was to rebound the ball, Brown said. We just wanted it more.Rutgers trailed by 15 points early, rallied to within 36-32 and then went nine minutes without a point. The Scarlet Knights went 0 for 11 with five turnovers during the drought while Miami pulled out to a 53-32 lead.The Hurricanes took leads of 15-4 and 25-10, and then scored two points over the next eight minutes while committing a flurry of turnovers that allowed the Scarlet Knights to climb back into the game.Miami led 34-28 at halftime.BIG PICTURERutgers: Rutgers was outrebounded 14-2 in the first 10 minutes. The Hurricanes grabbed 15 of the 32 rebounds when they missed a shot.Their length bothered us, Pikiell said. That team is as good a rebounding team as were going to face.Before the game, Larranaga stressed Rutgers rebounding ability.We made a strong emphasis to the team that if we dont rebound, were not going to be in the game, he said.Miami: The Hurricanes are especially young and inexperienced inside, but Huell showed his potential to provide a foundation for the future.His most impressive play might have been a graceful, high-flying layup leading a fast break for a 49-32 lead. He also drove the baseline from the left corner for a dunk, prompting a big cheer from the small crowd.I like the breakaway layup to show my ball-handling skills, Huell said.The Rutgers coach was among those impressed.Huell, I love him, Pikiell said. Hes going to be terrific.CLAMPDOWNIt was another strong defensive effort by the Hurricanes, who came into the game ranked 12th in scoring defense at 58.7 points per game. Mike Williams led Rutgers with 16 points off the bench in 19 minutes.BAD RATIOThe Hurricanes had nine assists and 19 turnovers.It really should be the opposite, Larranaga said. Were a little young and dont have team chemistry on offense yet.UP NEXTRutgers: The Scarlet Knights return home to play Morgan State on Saturday.Miami: All six of the Hurricanes games in December will be in South Florida, beginning Saturday against Wofford.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Mitch Moreland Rangers Jersey . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. Ian Desmond Jersey .S. Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. http://www.rangersapparelsshop.com/delino-deshields-jersey-c-21/ . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. ATLANTA -- Senior forward Antonio Campbell went for game highs of 25 points and 12 rebounds Friday as Ohio University beat Georgia Tech 67-61.The Bobcats second straight win in an Atlantic Coast Conference gym came down to their big man, long balls and Ohios experience over the youngest team in the nation.Georgia Tech (2-1) led 32-27 at halftime and outrebounded Ohio 48-37 overall, but the Bobcats (3-0) made seven 3-pointers in the second half. Thats when fifth-year senior Kenny Kaminski scored all 15 of his points from beyond the arc.Fourth-year junior point guard Jaaron Simmons added 17 points and nine assists, and the Bobcats three elders combined for all 10 of their made treys.Campbell added three, same as Techs total.The 6-foot-9 reigning Mid-American Conference player of the year wasnt around when Ohio won 61-55 at Maryland in 2007, yet said, We were pretty excited to come in and play against an ACC school. Theyre big, athletic. All teams in the MAC arent like that.The Yellow Jackets -- who started two true freshmen and had four players making their third career starts -- were led by junior center Ben Lammers career-high 22 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots. He held his own one-on-one against Campbell.Ohio took a difference approach.After watching tape of Techs first two games, in which powerfully built guard Josh Okogie scored 18 points each time, Bobcats head coach Saul Phillips stationed sophomore guard Jordan Dartis on Okogie and sagged on him.Theyd made seven 3s (in the first two games), Phillips said of Tech. We tried to make sure our help was a little exaggerated ... we got guys whove played a lot together.Okogie went 2 of 13 while scoring five points, and the Jackets in the second half shot just 27.8 percent (10 of 36).After Kaminski made a pair on back-to-back possessions to give Ohio a 49-46 lead with 11:02 left in the game, Tech never led again and tied only once -- on Jacksons short jumper at the 8:11 mark.From there, the Bobcats stretched the game out.We went iin talking the entire time about, `Youve got to take the 3 out, and we did a good job in the first half, said Tech coach Josh Pastner. Texas Rangers Jersey. In the second half, Kaminski got loose and hit a couple big shots that changed the complexion of the game. That was the big difference right there.BIG PICTUREOhio: The Bobcats are better when Campbell and Simmons are clicking. Simmons struggled in the first half, scoring nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with five turnovers -- mostly against 6-8 Tech swingman Abdoulaye Gueye. He made half his six shots in the second half, rang up six of his nine assists and turned the ball over just once. Theres no question that that one of the biggest narratives of this game is weve got guys that have played a lot together, Phillips said.Georgia Tech: Senior forward Quinton Stephens was 1 of 9 Friday for six points, and hes 7 of 26 in three games. Fellow senior Josh Heath, potentially the starting point guard, will sit out one more game as part of a four-game suspension for violating team rules.HOW ABOUT A DO-OVERWith Stephens offensive struggles, Pastner gave him a break in the second half. I thought he looked tired (on offense), the coach said. But he was doing a good job on Kaminski, who got hot. I regret subbing him ... that ones on me.STOCK OPTIONAt 6-9, 244 pounds, Campbell has eyes on the next level of the game, which may have eyes on him. Theres a reason NBA teams are looking at him, Phillips said. He lost 30 pounds since last year; he was chunky ... he may be a second-round prospect now with maybe some ability to slide up.UP NEXTOhio: The Bobcats will be idle for a week before playing host Nov. 25 to Tennessee Tech, which Georgia Tech beat 70-55 in the season opener.Georgia Tech: The Yellow Jackets will play the fourth of five home games to start the season Tuesday when they face Sam Houston State. Ohio beat SHSU 96-75 Monday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Odds are against NFL teams making the playoffs after a 1-3 start. Carlos Gomez Jersey .Only 14 percent of teams that started 1-3 made the playoffs since 1990, when the playoff format?was?changed.?Thats 26 out of 183. There is some recent success, however. The Texans and Chiefs did it last season.What makes it tough this year is the number of 1-3 teams -- 13 -- and the number of times they face each other. For example, this week, the 1-3 Titans play the 1-3 Dolphins, the 1-3?Bears play the 1-3?Colts and the 1-3 Buccaneers play the 1-3?Panthers.Heres?how I rank the 1-3 teams on their chances to rebound and how likely they are to make the playoffs, from best to worst:1. Carolina PanthersUnless the Falcons run away with the NFC South, which will be tough because of their schedule, the Panthers have the best chance to bounce back and make a playoff run. While their pass rush has diminished from last season and they have major problems -- and inexperience -- in the secondary, the Panthers are the only team in the division with an accomplished defense. I still think theyll win the NFC South, and that might take only nine or 10 wins. Doug Fister Jersey . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. Craig Biggio Astros Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era. http://www.houstonastrosshop.com/Jon-Singleton-Jersey/ . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. (STATS) -- The FCS was alphabet soup even in the days when it was called NCAA Division I-AA, so with the best playoffs in college football beginning on Saturday, its good to know the 24 teams in the field from A to Z.NDSU, er, North Dakota State is the five-time defending champ, but there are plenty of contenders to be the FCS champ.Enjoy all the fun.With this years field …A is for coach Andy Talley. The retiring Villanova coach goes into his 12th playoff appearance with a 2009 FCS title and 257 career wins (229 with the Wildcats) to his credit.B is for the backup quarterbacks. Richmond is turning to its backup to make his first career start in the first round. Charleston Southern, Lehigh, New Hampshire, North Carolina A&T, Wofford and Youngstown State are other teams playing in the first round that havent simply relied on one quarterback to win games.C is for coaches. There are nine who have earned their conferences coach of the year award already: North Dakotas Bubba Schwiegert (Big Sky), Charleston Southerns Jamey Chadwell (Big South), James Madisons Mike Houston (CAA), South Dakota States John Stiegelmeier (Missouri Valley), Saint Francis Chris Villarrial (Northeast), Jacksonville States John Grass (Ohio Valley), Lehighs Andy Coen (Patriot), The Citadels Brent Thompson (Southern) and Sam Houston States K.C. Keeler (Southland).D is for Dakota. Three of the eight seeded teams are North Dakota State (1), North Dakota (7) and South Dakota State (8).E is for eleven. There are 11 teams back in the field from a year ago. None has been better about coming back than New Hampshire, which is making its 13th straight appearance under coach Sean McDonnell.F is Frisco. The growing Dallas suburb is the neutral site host to the championship game for the seventh consecutive season. Toyota Stadium is undergoing renovation, so seating capacity has dropped from 20,086 to about 15,300.G is for great games. Its what we all want during this grand time of the season.H is for home field advantage. Theres only one playoff game without it -- the championship. Eleven of the playoff qualifiers, including six seeded teams, were unbeaten at home in the regular season, and all of the qualifiers combined to go 112-15 (.882).I is for incomparable. Eastern Washington wide receiver Cooper Kupp holds the FCS and Division I records for receptions (402), receiving yards (6,061) and touchdown receptions (68).J is for Jeremiah Briscoe. The Sam Houston State quarterback leads the FCS in passing yards (4,096), passing yards per game (372.4), touchdown passes (52), passing efficiency (187.0) and points responsible for per game (28.9). Hes four shy of the FCS single-season record for touchdown passes.K is for keeping drives alive. Playoff qualifiers Cal Poly, James Madison, Eastern Washington, San Diego, Sam Houston State and Lehigh are the only teams in the FCS whose third down conversion rates are above 50 percent.L is for losses. Central Arkansas, Chattanooga, North Carolina A&T, Richmond, Saint Francis, Samford and The Citadel ended the regular seasson with a defeat. Scott Feldman Astros Jersey. But that was then, this is now …M is for momentum. Illinois State, once 3-5, surged to an at-large bid with three straight season-ending wins. Sam Houston State has the longest winning streak (11) and is one of 11 teams in the field that havent lost since the calendar turned to November.N is for nicknames. The more unique ones are the Jackrabbits (South Dakota State), Penguins (Youngstown State), Red Flash (Saint Francis) and Toreros (San Diego). The most common is Wildcats (New Hampshire, Villanova and Weber State).O is for offense. Sam Houston State ranks No. 1 in the FCS in points per game and offensive yards per game, while Eastern Washington is No. 2 and 3, respectively, and Jacksonville State is No. 3 and 2, respectively.P is for the Palmetto State. South Carolina has a mini-tournament going on in the first two rounds as Charleston Southern visits Wofford before the winner heads to The Citadel.Q is for questionable calls. Its guaranteed a fan base will second-guess the head coach after a loss.R is for rematches. Avoiding them, that is, after last years field drew criticism for too many rematches. San Diego at Cal Poly is a first-round rematch (Cal Poly won 38-16 on Sept. 10), but there are only two possibilities in the second round (New Hampshire-James Madison and Wofford-The Citadel).S is for seeded teams. North Dakota State, Eastern Washington, Jacksonville State, James Madison, Sam Houston State, The Citadel, North Dakota and South Dakota State are thankful to first-round byes on Thanksgiving weekend.T is for turnovers. They decide so many games. Lehigh has committed the fewest turnovers (eight) in the FCS and North Dakota has the most takeaways (20) and best turnover margin (plus-17) in the field.U is for upsets. Yeah, bring em on.V is for coach Chris Villarrial. After Saint Francis didnt have a winning season in its first 22 years on the Division I level, the Red Flash have posted back-to-back winning records under a seventh-year coach who has them in the playoffs for the first time. North Dakota is the other first-time qualifier, but it didnt join Division I until 2008.W is for wide receivers. The field includes the top seven in the FCS in receiving yards: Saint Francis Kamron Lewis (1,349), Eastern Washingtons Cooper Kupp (1,297), Samfords Karel Hamilton (1,242) South Dakota States Jake Wieneke (1,204) and Dallas Goedert (1,146), Richmonds Brian Brown (1,179) and Lehighs Troy Pelletier (1,140).X is for X-factors. Special teams, senior leadership, injuries, weather, luck -- theyre all included.Y is for Youngstown State. The four-time national champion in the 1990s is back in the field for the first time since 2006, ending the longest drought among the 22 teams that were in the field previously.Z is for bye-zon. North Dakota State pronounces its Bison nickname as bye-zon. Yeah, theyre the five-time reigning national champs, they call the shots. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Asdrubal Cabrera Mets Jersey . -- Rams coach Jeff Fisher was in a playful mood Monday, joking about the worst scoring offense in the NFL.But if you look at the big picture, were 2-1 when we havent scored a touchdown, he said. So Im not sure why you guys are making such a big deal about not scoring touchdowns.While ending a four-game losing streak with a 9-6 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, Fisher saw signs of progress from the offense, even if it didnt find the end zone.Obviously thats a big deal for us, Fisher said. Its an area that needs to improve for us to make the push we want to make.Running back Todd Gurley would have matched his season high in rushing yards if not for a holding penalty that erased a 21-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Wide receiver Kenny Britt had 109 yards receiving, his second 100-yard game of the season. Quarterback Case Keenum did not turn the ball over for only the second time this season.Still, it was enough because the defense and special teams performed at a high level. Fisher doesnt expect a repeat performance on offense will be enough to break the Miami Dolphins four-game winning streak on Sunday.This week is going to be completely different, Fisher said.On offense, the Rams must try to limit lineman Ndamukong Suh and the other members of a defensive front that Fisher described as extraordinary. The offensive line committed only one penalty against the talented and aggressive Jets, but that holding penalty against left tackle Greg Robinson gave New York one last chance to win the game.Its the things were not doing, Fisher said. We had some big-play opportunities, had some mistakes up front, protection mistakes with people running down the field.Getting explosive plays from wide receiver Tavon Austin could give the Rams a lift. Since signing a four-year contract extension in August, Austin has topped 100 yards from scrimmage just once, in a win at Tampa Bay in Week 3. In his last four games, Austin has just one reception longer than 20 yards, though Fisher said Austins presence is creating favorable matchups for Britt.Its an ongoing process, Fisher said. Were not disappointed because he is a highly talented player. We just need to get him more opportunities.The Rams defense will have to contend with running back Jay Ajayi, whose streak of three consecutive games with more than 100 yards rushing ended in a 31-24 win at the San Diego Chargers. St. Louis could be without two of their top defensive ends -- Eugene Sims is in concussion protocol, while Robert Quinn checked himself into a hospital Monday with an illness unrelated to football. Fisher is optimistic both will be available to play.For three weeks now, were putting a winning effort if you look at the stats defensively, so we have to keep that going, Fisher said.The offense has to keep up its end, and thats no laughing matter for Fisher.We got to get back to scoring, Fisher said. We can do better. Lenny Dykstra Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Tom Seaver Mets Jersey . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday. Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. http://www.baseballmetsofficial.com/gary-carter-jersey-c-11/ . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. SAN FRANCISCO -- Both teams will begin with question marks and end with uncertainties when the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants meet in the finale of a four-game series on Sunday afternoon.The game is a big one for both teams, but especially for the Cardinals, who trail the Giants and New York Mets by two games in the race for two wild-card playoff spots in the National League.A win Sunday not only would allow the Cardinals to close the gap on the Giants, but also would secure a 4-3 win in the season series, which would give them the home-field advantage should the two teams finish in a tie for a wild-card spot.There are only 14 games remaining in the season.I can feel it, and I know the guys can feel it, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said of the pressure of the playoff race. We know where everybody stands.But neither manager can even pretend to know what hes going to get from Sundays starting pitcher.Each will be going with a rookie who has never faced the other team -- the Cardinals Alex Reyes and Giants Albert Suarez.Reyes has made only two previous major league starts, and didnt win either. He pitched well, giving up just three runs in 10 2/3 innings, but those games were against two of the worst teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics and Cincinnati Reds.Suarez, meanwhile, has more of a track record, having gone 3-3 in 20 appearances, including 10 starts.He appeared to be in good shape to win a fourth game in his last start Tuesday, buut the Giants bullpen blew a 4-1 lead in the ninth inning and the club dropped a 6-4 decision to the San Diego Padres. Matt Harvey Mets Jersey. The Giants bullpen hasnt gotten any better since then. Three relievers combined to give up two hits, a walk and two runs in the Cardinals ninth-inning rally Saturday night that might have saved their season.It surely didnt save closer Santiago Casillas job. After Giants manager Bruce Bochy didnt have the confidence in him to start the ninth inning with a 2-1 lead, Castilla wound up blowing the save anyway after entering the game with one on and one out.Bochy was booed when he went to the mound to bring Casilla into the game, and booed louder when he had to go back and pull him two batters later.I understand in this game, everybody likes it when you do good. But then they forget what you do, Casilla said after the loss. I never have that moment (boos) before. So when we lose the game, its not so easy. So I feel bad.Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, meanwhile, used his best reliever, Seung Hwan Oh, two innings Saturday night, which makes him unlikely to be available in the series finale.Matheny also has former closer Trevor Rosenthal at his disposal. But Rosenthal said he felt sore after pitching one inning Friday night in his return from the disabled list, so he also might not be ready for work Sunday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
