Outspoken New York Jets star Brandon Marshall, commenting for the first time on the Colin Kaepernick controversy, defended the quarterbacks right to sit in protest during the national anthem. Julius Erving Jersey .This guy, hes one of the biggest patriots out there, Marshall said Tuesday in an interview on WFAN radio in New York. Because hes standing up for human rights.Marshall was a guest on the Boomer and Carton show. The Pro Bowl wide receiver sharply disagreed with co-host Boomer Esiason, who last week was critical of Kaepernick.Youre 100 percent wrong, Marshall told Esiason, his fellow analyst on Showtimes Inside the NFL.Never shy about tackling polarizing issues, Marshall said he will be standing for the anthem on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, where the Jets will commemorate the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks with a pregame ceremony.Marshall said Kaepernicks action, aimed to protest police brutality against minorities, is a hot topic of conversation in locker rooms across the NFL, including the Jets.Several Jets players were reluctant to comment last week when approached by reporters.I think President Obama said it best: Thats his constitutional right, Marshall said of the San Francisco 49ers quarterback. But I do think this is very thought-provoking for all.I think that the message was a little diluted because of how much respect a lot of us have for those that served. ? [They] gave us our freedoms, fought for our freedoms. But the message was clear.Marshall, who missed the last two games of the preseason with a minor hip injury, hasnt talked to reporters in nearly two weeks.The only thing that I would love for everyone to really think about is: What does the American flag mean to them? Marshall asked.When I look at the American flag, I see a bunch of fights. You know how much we have overcome. When you look at it, the American flag is bigger than just one thing. And you have the civil rights movement, you have sex trafficking, you have immigration law. Theres so many different fights there. And we have to be aware that its bigger than one person and one thing.But then there are times when that one thing trumps all. When it comes to human rights, we really have to be careful. If you believe in one thing, if you believe in mental health, that means you believe in cancer research. If you believe in cancer research, you believe in raising awareness for HIV. If you believe in standing up for gay rights, then you believe in standing up for the minorities. Julius Erving 76ers Jerseys . It might not have mattered.

Monday night against Oklaho
ROME -- Novak Djokovic cant seem to find any consistency on clay courts. Alonzo Mourning Heat Jersey . And with the French Open less than 10 days away, he will enter Roland Garros on the back of two early defeats. The top-ranked Serb wasted a chance to serve out the match and was beaten 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 by sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych in the Italian Open quarterfinals Friday. In the semifinals, Berdych will face six-time Rome champion Rafael Nadal, who defeated fellow Spaniard David Ferrer 6-4, 4-6, 6-2. While he struggled at times, Nadal appeared sharper than in his three-set win over Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis a day earlier. In the other half of the draw, Roger Federer overcame an early break in the second set to edge rising Polish player Jerzy Janowicz 6-4, 7-6 (2) in a night match at the Foro Italico. Attempting to win this tournament for the first time, Federers next opponent will be Benoit Paire. The 36th-ranked Frenchman routed Marcel Granollers of Spain 6-1, 6-0 to reach his first Masters series semifinal. In the womens tournament, top-ranked Serena Williams rolled past Spanish opponent Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2, 6-0 to extend her winning run to a career-best 22 matches. Williams will next face Romanian qualifier Simona Halep, who rallied past two-time Rome champion Jelena Jankovic 4-6, 6-0, 7-5. Meanwhile, two-time defending champion Maria Sharapova withdrew before her quarterfinal against seventh-seeded Sara Errani due to illness. Errani, the first Italian semifinalist in this tournament since Raffaella Reggi won the 1985 event in Taranto, will face third-seeded Victoria Azarenka, who held off ninth-seeded Sam Stosur 6-4, 1-6, 6-3. Its the second consecutive week that Djokovic has struggled, having also lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the second round of the Madrid Open after being bothered by a right ankle injury. Djokovic said he had been playing pain free this week. Still, he will need to get his game in shape in a hurry with the French Open, the years second Grand Slam, starting May 26. "I know I can play well on clay and so I shouldnt allow myself to have these drops, and lets hope it wont happen for Roland Garros," Djokovic said of the only major he hasnt won. "Im fine. I just lost my rhythm." Djokovic served for the match at 5-3 in the second set, but Berdych ripped a backhand winner that landed on the line on his first break point and won the final four games of the set. "Its a very strange situation," Djokovic said. "I played very well and was two points from winning. Then the entire match changed and I was a different player." Its the first time Berdych has reached the semifinals in eight appearances in Rome, having been eliminated four times in the quarters. The tall Czech took control of the match with his big first serve, and by coming forward to angle shots into the corners to set up easy volleys. Djokovic had trouble returning Berdychs first serve and also complained about the courts surface early on. In the third set, Berdych went ahead with an early break and then shook off some nerves to close the match out on his fourth match point with a big serve out wide that Djokovic could barely get his racket on. As overcast skies gave way to sunshine, the court dried out, favouring Berdychs power game. "I lost the concentration," Djokovic said. "I started playing more defensively. ... He started playing more confidently, stepping into the court and taking advantage of his opportunities." It was only Berdychs second win in 15 career meetings with Djokovic, with his only previous victory coming in the 2010 Wimbledon semifinals. It was also only Berdychs fourth win versus a top-ranked player in 20 attempts, with all three previous wins coming against Federer. "He has been for quite a few years just behind the top four," Djokovic said. "Hes able to play big matches. He has proven that. So (he) is definitely a very dangerous player on any surface with a serve like that." Djokovic was 148-4 when winning the first set since 2011, according to the ATP. Williams had twice won 21 in a row before, although both of those runs came a decade ago, in 2002 and 2003. "Ive been pretty consistent, and pretty healthy -- knock on wood," Williams said. "I feel great -- never felt better." Martina Navratilova established the longest womens win run in the Open Era at 74 matches in 1984. Williams only title here came in 2002, when she beat Justine Henin in the final. That was also the year she won her only French Open title. Last year in Paris, Williams lost in the opening round of a major for the first time, falling to 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano of France. Sharapova said he was struggling with an illness she first contracted last week, when she was runner-up to Williams in Madrid, although she showed no problems Thursday as she beat 16th-seeded Sloane Stephens 6-2, 6-1. "I was already a bit off in Madrid and played though it and it came back last night and I got sick again and its not smart to compete again," said Sharapova, adding that she had a fever after beating Stephens. "Obviously with the French Open coming up it is important to make smart decisions." Justise Winslow Heat Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Tim Hardaway Jersey . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. http://www.officialheatstore.us/gerald-green-heat-jersey/ .

I think every game we got a little better.Oregon (4-2) lost its opener to Georgetown, but bounced back with an overtime victory over Tennessee on Dillon Brooks long 3-pointer. The Ducks wanted to get off to a fast start in their Maui finale and did just that, racing to a 15-point lead in the opening 4 1/2 minutes.UConn (2-4) chipped into the lead by halftime, but the Ducks started flying again, building the lead back up to 17.Dylan Ennis added 15 points for Oregon, which shot 54 percent and made 9 of 21 from 3-point range.Jalen Adams led the Huskies with 27 points and Rodney Purvis added 13.Comes down to fundamentals: play defense and execute on offense, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. I dont know what else to say. Energy and youve got to play defense. They made shots and we didnt make shots. Simple game. Theres no secret to it.The Ducks attacked the Huskies from the opening tip, scoring the games first 10 points, racing out to an 18-point lead.Ollie called a timeout 41 seconds into the game and Adams, the Huskies leading scorer, headed to the bench at 17:03 after picking up his second foul.I dont think we were just playing with the intensity we should have, Adams said. We didnt match their intensity or their energy and I think we have to work on that. Weve got to build on that.Oregon pushed the lead to 21, but the Huskies came roaring back.UConn started hitting shots it was missing earlier, while the Ducks went more than 8 minutes without a field goal, trimming the lead to 339-28 by halftime. Chris Bosh Jersey.

The Huskies whittled away at the lead and got it down to eight with 3 minutes left, but couldnt make up any more ground.I just thought our energy level today was much better because of the ball movement and getting some shots down, Oregon coach Dana Altman said.BIG PICTUREOregon finished the Maui Invitational with a flourish after a dud of a start. The Ducks should get better as Brooks, their leader, builds up stamina in his return from offseason foot surgery.UConns young team is still trying to gel.

HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans proved they were serious about upgrading their offense this offseason by luring Brock Osweiler from Denver with a four-year, $72 million contract. Malik Hooker Jersey . Now its time to see if the quarterback was worth it.All eyes will be on Osweiler when the Texans begin training camp on July 31 -- especially with star defensive end J.J. Watt sidelined by a back injury.Im impressed with Brock, probably most of all in his ability to learn our system, our operation, coach Bill OBrien said. Its not easy to come in here and learn how we operate as an offense, how we meet, how we call plays at the line of scrimmage, how we teach defense ... were really happy with his progress.On Thursday night, a person familiar with Watts condition said the star defender has had back surgery and will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list. The person spoke to The Associated Press on on condition of anonymity because the team hasnt confirmed the surgery or Watts roster status.Watt, the NFL sacks leader last season with 17 1/2, will miss the start of training camp, but is expected to be ready for the season opener. Watt spent most of the offseason recovering after having surgery to repair a groin injury in January.Watts still looking to do more in 2016 and said he never watches his highlights, instead viewing his bad plays to figure out how to get better.Theres so many great players in this league, and you want to learn and grow as much as you can and gain as much information as you can so that you can improve your own game, Watt said.Osweiler has started just seven games in his four-year NFL career and they were all last season. He was presumed to be Denvers starter this season after Peyton Mannings retirement, but he signed with Houston for megabucks instead.He joins an offense highlighted by star receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who finished third in the NFL with 1,521 yards receiving last season, and that added running back Lamar Miller in free agency, then got receivers Will Fuller and Braxton Miller in the draft.The Texans overcame quarterback woes last season to finish 9-7 and reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012. They were ousted in the wild-card round by Kansas City after Brian Hoyer committed five turnovers in the 30-0 loss.Now Osweiler takes over and he feels good about his grasp of Houstons offense after the work he got in practices and minicamp this spring and early this summer. Hes looking to take his understanding to another level in camp.Its just focusing on the details of our offense, he said. Theres a lot of things that go into it -- formations, motions, shifts, different cadences, different route concepts, run checks, pass checks -- and so its just focusing on the details and focusing on the line-of-scrimmage operation.Some things to know about the Texans, who open the season Sept. 11 against the Chicago Bears:EXPECTATIONS FOR CLOWNEY: Outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is entering his third NFL season and so far the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft has failed to live up to expectations during two injury-plagued seasons. Clowney played just four games as a rookie before having season-ending microfracture surgery. He recovered from that for the start of last season, but missed three games and Houstons playoff match with various ailments. He did show flashes of the potential he displayed in college, though, and finished with 4 1/2 sacks and forced a fumble.Its frustrating. It feels like youre letting the team down when youre not out there, Clowney said. Injuries happen, youve just got to be mentally tough to come back and show the guys you are ready to play.MILLERS POTENTIAL: The Texans snagged an intriguing player when they drafted Braxton Miller in the third round. Miller was the two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year in 2012 and 2013 after throwing from more than 2,000 yards and rushing for more than 1,000 in both of those seasons. He sat out for a season with a shoulder injury before moving to receiver last year, when he finished with 26 receptions for 341 yards.Miller is happy with his progress since making the move.NEW CENTER: The Texans will likely have rookie second-round pick Nick Martin at center after Ben Jones, who started every game the last two seasons, signed with Titans. He is the younger brother of Zack Martin, a first-round pick by the Cowboys in 2014 and a two-time Pro-Bowler at guard.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Zach Banner Colts Jersey . He just needed to be his best twisting, turning acrobatic self. "I didnt need to be anybody else, I just needed to be myself and be aggressive," said Burks, who scored a career-high 34 points to spark the Utah Jazz to a 118-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. Quincy Wilson 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. http://www.authoritycoltsshop.com/tarell-basham-colts-jersey-c-48/ . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. NEW YORK -- The matchup of young superstars Connor McDavid and John Tavares will be the main attraction Saturday night at Barclays Center. But McDavids Edmonton Oilers and Tavares New York Islanders will be less concerned about individual duels and more about snapping their respective teams losing streak when the Islanders host the Oilers in the fourth game of a five-game homestand.The Oilers suffered their third straight defeat Thursday, when they blew a trio of one-goal leads and gave up the final three goals in the third period of a 5-3 loss to the New York Rangers. The Islanders lost for the second straight time, and the fourth time in five games, when they blew a third-period lead before falling to the Philadelphia Flyers in the shootout.The losing streaks have reminded both the Oilers (7-3-1) and Islanders (4-6-1) how narrow the line is between victory and defeat in the NHL. Edmonton fell to the Toronto Maple Leafs, 3-2, in overtime on Tuesday.Obviously, youre never certain about anything -- youve got to play all 60 minutes, Oilers head coach Todd McLellan said.The Islanders have been reminded of that numerous times this season. New York has been tied or ahead in the third period in five of its seven losses.The Islanders inability to put games away is tied into the lack of scoring they have received from forwards. New York, which lost three of its nine 10-goal scorers from last year to free agency (Kyle Okposo, Frans Nielsen and Matt Martin) is tied for 12th in the league with 30 goals but has received just 19 ggoals from non-defensemen. Tarell Basham Womens Jersey. Offseason signings Jason Chimera and Andrew Ladd have yet to score a goal.Thats my concern -- where are we going to get point production? Islanders head coach Jack Capuano said. Took 134 points out of our lineup that we lost and now weve got to find a way.If the Oilers or Islanders are going to steer out of their skids, theyll likely do so behind McDavid or Tavares. McDavid, who became the youngest captain in NHL history when he was bestowed the C prior to this season at age 19, leads Edmonton with five goals and eight assists. Tavares, who was a comparatively wizened 22 years old when New York named him captain prior to the 2013-14 season, has four assists and a team-high five goals.This will be the third time McDavid and Tavares oppose one another. McDavid had one goal and one assist while Tavares had a goal and two assists as the Oilers and Islanders split last seasons series.With both teams having Friday off, number one goaltenders Cam Talbot and Jaroslav Halak are likely to draw the starts. Talbot, who has started all 11 games this season for the Oilers, is 4-1-0 in seven career appearances against the Islanders. He earned the win the last time he faced New York on Feb. 28, when Talbot stopped 36 of 37 shots in a 3-1 victory at Rexall Place.Halak is 8-3-1 in 13 career appearances against the Oilers. He made 23 saves in taking the loss on Feb. 28. 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 ' ' '

The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns guard Joel Bitonio was placed on injured reserve Friday with a mid-foot sprain. Coach Hue Jackson said Bitonio is done for the season.Obviously, hes out for the rest of this year, Jackson said. Its unfortunate. Joel is one of our best players up there. It makes it a little tough. But again, well find a way.Bitonios mid-foot sprain is the latest in a wave of injuries that has affected the Browns this season. The team ranks second in the league with 17 players ruled out of games, according to ESPN Stats & Information.This is our time right now, Jackson said. Were going through it. Hopefully well get through all of these issues and our future will be bright, because maybe the injury gods will look down on us as we move forward and say, OK, you guys have had your fair share for years to come.Jackson said he did not know whether Bitonio would need surgery. Bitonio said he would visit Dr. Robert Anderson, a nationally known foot expert, next week in Charlotte.The lineman hurt his right foot after it got tangled up with other players during a Hail Mary on the last play of the first half in Clevelands loss to New England last Sunday. He played the entire second half with the injury.Youre always a little bit beat up out there, and you dont ever want to let your teammates down, Bitonio said.The Browns privately and publicly had been very happy with Bitonio, saying he had been playing at a Pro Bowl level.Hes one of the best guards in the NFL, left tackle Joe Thomas said.Bitonios injury is one of many the Browns have had on the offensive line. With Bitonio out, Alvin Bailey will move from right to left guard, John Greco from center to right guard and?Cam Erving?will start at center after missing three games with a bruised lung.Sundays game at?Tennessee?will be the fourth in aa row that the Browns use a different combination on the offensive line. Evan Fournier Jersey. Jackson also said that quarterback Josh McCown will not play as he continues to recover from a broken left collarbone. McCowns absence means the Browns will face the Titans with two rookie quarterbacks. Third-round pick Cody Kessler will start, and Kevin Hogan will be the backup. Hogan was signed to the Browns practice squad just before the season opener and was promoted from the practice squad this week.The Browns also could use wide receiver?Terrelle Pryor at quarterback if needed.I feel OK, coach Hue Jackson said. I think weve practiced with the right thought process in place in case something was to happen to Cody. That well be able to function a little bit better than we did a week ago.Kessler bruised his ribs on his left side in the loss to New England and missed the final three quarters. Charlie Whitehurst replaced him and threw for 182 yards, but he hurt his knee late in the loss and was released with an injury settlement. Robert Griffin III and McCown were injured in the first two games of the season.Kesslers ribs improved enough during the week that he practiced Thursday. He will start Sunday.McCown tested his left shoulder all week, but the teams doctors and trainers decided it was wise for him to miss another game.I think hes close; I think hes really close, Jackson said. Just talking to our medical staff its the best thing to do for another week.Cornerback Joe Haden?(groin) did not take part in the teams practice -- Friday is a walk-through -- and is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision. Its the second time Haden tweaked a groin muscle during practice. 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 ' ' '

MIAMI -- For the Miami Marlins, a season of disappointment turned to despair in the final week. Marlon Mack Womens Jersey .The Marlins posted a winning record in each of the first four months, and on Aug. 1 they were in contention for their first playoff berth since 2003. But injuries and lack of depth then sent the Marlins into a nosedive, and they instead finished below .500 (79-82) for the seventh consecutive year.Dismay over another losing season was overshadowed, however, by the death of ace Jose Fernandez in a boating accident. His teammates spent the last week of the season grieving for a pitcher who ranked among the sports most dynamic players.Definitely the circumstances at the end just dramatically change the final thought of the season, manager Don Mattingly. Youre forever changed by this.Here are things to know as Marlins head into another long winter thinking of only one loss:JOSES LEGACYThe pain of Fernandezs absence next year will remain acute, teammates predict.Time will heal, reliever Mike Dunn said. But the first day of spring training is going to be hard, because were going to come in and hes not going to be there. Then you get past that to opening day, and at some point theyre going to retire his number. And then the All-Star Game is in Miami next year, and that will bring up reminders. Its going to be hard.Pitcher Tom Koehler hopes to honor Fernandezs legacy by playing with the same joy his teammate displayed.For me that will be hard, because were the opposite in that regard, Koehler said with a chuckle. He always wanted to be out there smiling and laughing. I wish I could be in a bases-loaded situation with nobody out in a one-run game and be laughing. Thats not who I am, but you know what? Maybe thats who some of us will become. Maybe well be able to relax and say it is a game. He played it like a game. You can take it a little too seriously sometimes and forget to enjoy the journey. Whether we like it or not, all of our times are coming.INJURIESRegarding the more mundane matter of the NL East standings, the Marlins were only four games behind first-place Washington on Aug. 1 but went 22-34 the rest of the way to finish 15+ games back.Miami couldnt overcome injuries down the stretch to sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Bour, or to pitchers Adam Conley, A.J. Ramos and Wei-Yin Chen.When I came into spring training, I thought we had a club that couldve been playing in the playoffs, Mattingly said. Without saying it out loud, I knew there were certain things that had to happen, and part of that was we had to stay kind of injury-free.With a small payroll and weak farm system, Miami didnt have the depth to replace those sidelined.WHAT WENT RIGHTIchiro Suzuki became the 30th player to reach 3,000 hits, finished with 3,030, batted .291 and is expected back next year at age 43. Christian Yelich had a breakout season with 21 homers and 98 RBI, both career highs, while batting .298. Catcher J.T. Realmuto batted .303 with 11 homers.ATTENDANCEFive-year-old Marlins Park has done little to diminish apathy toward baseball in South Florida, and the Marlins finished last in the NL in attendance for the 11th time in the past 12 seasons, averaging 21,405 per game.Even the popular Fernandez couldnt help at the box office. His 16 home starts averaged 20,975.OFFSEASON MOVESThe loss of Fernandez leaves a huge hole in an already wobbly rotation.Because the free agent market -- like the Marlins minor league system -- is thin on pitching, they might need to swing a trade for a No. 1 starter. One option would be to part with the injury-plagued Stanton, who will be due $14.5 million in 2017, the third year of his record 13-year, $325 million deal.---AP freelancer Ian Quillen in Washington contributed to this report. Marlon Mack Colts Jersey . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. Zach Banner Womens Jersey . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. http://www.footballcoltsteamprostore.com/Youth-Tarell-Basham-Elite-Jersey/ .

ORCHARD PARK, N. Lucas Nogueira Raptors Jersey .Y. -- Rex Ryan readily concedes he had a much easier time drawing up a defensive game plan the last time the Buffalo Bills prepared to face the New England Patriots.It goes without question, the biggest factor working in the Bills coachs favor was he didnt have a certain Tom Brady to worry about four weeks ago.It was a great time to play them, Ryan said Wednesday, reflecting back on Buffalos 16-0 win against a Jacoby Brissett-led New England offense on Oct. 2.They have a new player back there for some reason, he added, with a distinct roll of his eyes in referring Brady. He looks decent.Once the laughter subsided, Ryan went on to praise Brady by calling him the best quarterback hes faced.The Bills (4-3) have their hands full Sunday, when the Patriots (6-1) come to town with Brady back at his familiar spot under center since serving a four-game Deflategate suspension.In reeling off three consecutive wins , Brady has completed 75 percent of his passes for 1,004 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions. New England has combined for 85 points, 1,300 yards and 70 first downs.Thats a significant turnaround from an offense that managed just 277 yards, 13 first downs and was shut out at home for the first time since 1993 against Buffalo.Brady has been so productive Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams wondered how much of an advantage the quarterback might have actually gotten for using under-inflated footballs.Maybe it didnt make a bit of difference, Williams said.The AFC East rival Bills know Brady only too well. Since taking over the starters job from Drew Bledsoe in 2001, Brady has a 25-3 record against Buffalo. One more win and Brady matches the NFL record for most wins by a quarterback against one opponent: Brett Favre had 26 over Detroit.One of those victories still stings Ryan in particular.In New Englands 40-32 win at Orchard Park last season, Brady had three touchdowns and 466 yards passing -- the most by a Bills opponent in franchise history. Brady used an up-tempo, quick-passing attack to negate Buffalos pass rushing efforts.Ryan credited Brady for how well he can identify mismatches from the line of scrimmage based on how the defense is aligned.You dont want to present the same picture because once hes seen it, hes got great recall and hes got the skill to beat you, Ryan said. So hopefully, you can paint a different picture for him.Another concern is how the Patriots keep defenses off-balance with a sturdy running game led by LeGarrette Blount. It doesnt help that the injury-depleted Bills had a four-game winning streak snapped in a 28-25 loss at Miami during which Ryans defense surrendered 256 yards rushing.What running back wouldnt be happy seeing the team hes about to play just gave up 200 yards, linebacker Preston Brown said. You know (Blount) is going to be excited to see that we had some mishaps.The key remains keeping Brady in check.Its the same team, but you know when you have Tom Brady its a new team, Brown said, assessing the differences of how the Bills contained Brissett.Its definitely going to be a totally different challenge with the pass, especially with the quarterback we went up against. I mean, we shut them out, Brown said. But we only had 16 points, so its definitely going to be a tougher game if we only score 16 again.Ryan is hopeful the Bills are up to the challenge Brady presents.Id much rather scheme against some other team, a team down at the bottom than at the top, Ryan said. As a competitor, you want to go up against the best, or you want to see how you stand you up against the very best. And well find out on Sunday how we stand up to these guys.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Jonas Valanciunas Raptors Jersey .

Shes a natural that way, so I think shell be very hard to beat there (at Wyong).Madeenaty finisshed third to Invincible Star in her second start but she was easily the first horse home of those who came down the rail side, with the first two placegetters on the outside. Delon Wright Raptors Jersey. .I really liked her leading up to her first run because I had done a bit of work on her, Zahra said.She did what I expected and then I think you just have to forgive the second one. She had a low draw on the wrong side of the track and she beat the inside horses by like six lengths.Shes just got a stride of a good horse and has always impressed me.Zahra will ride Madeenaty at 54.5kg at Wyong which is lighter than normal.Youve got to do that to get the ride in the Millions, he said.Madeenatys co-trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig will also have Dam Ready in Thursdays Magic Millions Wyong 3&4YO Stakes. 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 ' ' '

NFL acknowledged Jacksonville should have been penalized for not being set on play before winning field goal. Ravens LB Elvis Dumervil subsequently grabbed quarterback Blake Bortles facemask while making tackle, giving Jacksonville one more play with no time left. Jason Myers followed with 53-yard FG to give Jags 22-20 win. You know, I dont really ever forget that game, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. It doesnt have to be spurred. Thats always been kind of on my mind. ... Coming off second-biggest come-from-behind victory in franchise history, Ravens looking for third 3-0 start and first since 2009. ...

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Duop Reath matched his season-high with 23 points and LSU scored the last 10 points to defeat College of Charleston 75-65 on Monday night for its fourth-straight win.The Cougars, who trailed by 13 points five minutes into the second half, tied the score at 65-65 on a basket by Joe Chealey with 1:48 remaining. Charleston missed its last four shots while the Tigers scored on their final five possessions.Brandon Sampson made a pair of field goals and Craig Victor hit four consecutive foul shots in the final 90 seconds for LSU (8-2). The Tigers other points came on a field goal by Jalyn Patterson.We took our time running the offense and let things come to us, Sampson said. We stuck to our assignments and got the ball inside. Everything just came to us instead of us rushing everything.Sampson finished with 20 points, while Victor had a season-high 18 points and 10 rebounds. The Tigers shot 50 percent from the field for the fifth time this season.I just like the way our guys dont get distracted, LSU coach Johnny Jones said. Charleston made a great run at the end in tying the game up. We had to fight back and make some plays. Our guys were poised under pressure and made some big plays down the stretch.Chealey had 23 points for the Cougars (8-4), whose five-game winning streak ended. Jarrell Brantley added 11 points.We had a couple of breakdowns on defense at the end where we tried to be aggressive, Charleston coach Earl Grant said. We missed a couple of 3s. We clawed back and never gave up. That game could have gone in any direction. We just broke down at the end and ran out of gas.BIG PICTURECharleston: Once again, the Cougars were unable to deliver a victory against a big-name school. Charleston had lost gamees earlier this season to Wake Forest (78-61) and top-ranked Villanova (63-47). Aaron Donald Rams Jersey. SU: For the third straight game, the Tigers had to hold off a mid-major team down the stretch for a victory.

Reath, who blocked three shots, was 10 of 16 from the field and grabbed eight rebounds. Victor was 5 of 6 from the field and 8 of 10 at the foul line. The Tigers are 4-0 since Victor entered the starting lineup. He has averaged 13 points and 10 rebounds in those four games. Two of Reaths three 20-point scoring games have come since Victor became a starter.DEFENSIVE PROBLEMSCharleston had relied upon its defense in winning eight of its first 11 games. However, the Cougars struggled stopping LSU. The Tigers made 50 percent of their field goal attempts (29 of 58). Only Central Florida and Wake Forest had shot higher than 50 percent against Charleston this season. LSU was only the second team to score more than 70 points against the Cougars. Wake Forest scored 78 points.DIFFERENT ROLEAntonio Blakeney, who averaged 22 points in LSUs three previous games, took only eight shots against Charleston. Blakeney made three and scored just seven points. However, Blakeney tied his career-high in rebounds with 10 and handed out three assists.UP NEXTCharleston continues its five-game road trip Thursday at Western Carolina.LSU will play its first true road game of the season Thursday when the Tigers take on Wake Forest. 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' ' '

TORONTO -- Philadelphia Flyers GM Ron Hextall was part of the Eric Lindros blockbuster trade in June 1992 with the Quebec Nordiques and still winces at the memory. Terrence Ross Raptors Jersey . He loved being a Flyer and didnt want to leave.As the NHL held a weeklong arbitration process to figure out whether the Nordiques had traded Lindros to the Flyers or New York Rangers -- Nordiques GM Pierre Page had apparently told both teams they had a deal -- Hextall waited.I remember it very clearly because of the timing of it, the arbitration [decision] was happening at noon. Sure enough, my phone rang at noon, said Hextall, in town to see Lindros, Pat Quinn, Rogie Vachon and?Sergei Makarov?inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. We were settled in Philly, I loved the Flyers, I could never imagine playing for another team. Now all of a sudden you get a phone call to say youve been traded. It was difficult. It was hard for me emotionally. I had young kids [6, 4, 1]. It was tough. That was a little shot of reality for a naive Brandon boy.Hextall laughed at how he felt about Lindros at that very moment.I was mad as hell at Eric. Until I got traded back two years later, said Hextall, laughing. Then I thought, This wasnt so bad after all. When I got back to Philly and now Im playing with Eric, then I thought he was more than OK.It is by no accident that the Nordiques insisted on getting prospect Peter Forsberg in the Lindros deal.We knew Forsberg was really good, former Flyers GM Russ Farwell said recently. We couldnt sign him. We couldnt get Forsberg to come over right then. We didnt want to include [Mark] Recchi or [Rod] BrindAmour, so that was the piece that kind of turned the tide, I think.The other GM who negotiated a deal with Quebec at the time was Neil Smith, on behalf of the Rangers. The ensuing arbitration that was needed to decide a winner left the Rangers losers in the Lindros sweepstakes.I asked Smith recently how he felt it would have changed the course of history for the Rangers to get Lindros. I mean, imagine Lindros and Mark Messier as a 1-2 punch at center from 1992 onward?You dont know if we would have won none or if we would have won more than one, responded Smith. His Rangers, of course, won the Cup in 1994. Because you dont know how that trade would have impacted what went on after that. There would be no [Esa] Tikkanen, or there would be no [Tony] Amonte to make that trade with Chicago. Theres so many things.The Big E changed the game during his heyday, of that there is no doubt.Yeah, well, everybody wanted players like him, but those type of players dont come along very often, former Flyers GM Bob Clarke said. Those are the generational players. Every 10 years, one of them comes along. Obviously, its McDavids turn now, but there was a Gretzky, a Lemieux, an Orr, those kind of players; and Lindros was one of those players that comes along every 10 years and seems just better than everyone else.As for Lindros today, it appears his future is not with an NHL team. I asked him during our sitdown interview a few weeks ago if he pictured himself running an NHL team or working for one in some capacity like many of his contemporaries.Never really crossed my mind, Lindros said. I look at some of my buddies that are pro scouts and how much travel they do. I can see it, had Kina and I had kids earlier, and [the kids] were 18-20 years old heading to university, but I just dont want to miss whats going on around the house.Lindros and wife Kina Lamarche have three kids 30 months and younger. Daddy Lindros is busy. Terrence Ross Jersey .

ial Center and addressing t
PITTSBURGH -- Josh Bell gave his veteran manager goose bumps. Dennis Rodman Jersey . He fired up a sellout crowd at PNC Park, too.Bells grand slam in his second major-league at bat was one of four homers by the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 12-6 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.Bell slugged a 1-1 pitch from Adam Warren (3-2) over the seats perched above the 21-foot wall in right for his second pinch-hit in two games since being recalled from Triple-A on Friday.What a fantastic sequence, said the Pirates Clint Hurdle, who has more than 1,000 managerial wins. I got goose bumps. Ive got them probably a dozen times since Ive been a coach or a manager.Chills went down my spine. ... Seemed like the stadium was pretty excited, too.Jordy Mercer followed Bells slam with a home run to make it a five-run fifth for the Pirates, who have won nine of 10 and 12 of their last 15 to move within 6 1/2 games of Chicago in the National League Central.Andrew McCutchen and Sean Rodriguez homered earlier off suddenly struggling Cubs starter Jon Lester, the National League pitcher of the month for June. Lester has allowed 13 runs in 4 1/3 innings in July, including five in three innings Saturday.Terrible. Unacceptable. Letdown, Lester said, describing his outing. Offense gives me two runs early and then gives me runs again -- and then I give it right back. Obviously a letdown, not only for myself but for the team.Ben Zobrist had a two-run homer and Anthony Rizzo had four hits for Chicago, which has lost nine of 10 and seen its division lead dwindle to as small as its been since May.I feel like were fortunate to be (up 6 1/2 games) right now, actually, manager Joe Maddon said. I dont believe its a negative; I think its a positive.Chad Kuhl lasted only 2 1/3 innings in his third major-league start, surrendering Zobrists 13th home run among seven hits allowed. But Pittsburghs bullpen was much better as Arquimedes Caminero (1-2) struck out three in 1 2/3 innings and Jared Hughes earned his third major-league save by pitching three scoreless innings.At least one run was scored during eight of the first 11 half-innings played on a night in which the city of Pittsburgh celebrated its bicentennial. A 25-minute fireworks display set off just a few hundred yards away at the citys Point State Park provided a soundtrack of regular rumbling booms throughout the fifth inning in which Bell and Mercer thrilled the Pirates third sellout crowd of the season even more.Over the past 10 days, the Pirates have scaled more than half of the 14-game hole it had dug in the NL Central. Before Saturdays game, Maddon said that he learned from former mentor John McNamara long ago that once a division lead became fewer than seven games, it was no longer safe.We werent walking away with our heads down, feeling sorry for ourselves when we were getting beat through June, Hurdle said, and were not going to do backflips now. Were going to keep playing.ALL-STAR COMINGS AND GOINGSCubs OF Dexter Fowler backed out of playing in Tuesdays All-Star game as a precaution as he recovers from a strained right hamstring that has him on the disabled list.Pirates OF Starling Marte was announced as one of the NL roster replacements along with the Reds Jay Bruce for Fowler and the Mets Yoenis Cespedes.ROSTER MOVEThe Cubs recalled INF Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A and Saturdayand optioned INF Jeimer Candelario to Iowa. Maddon said the move was made to give the team a more experienced bat off the bench.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: Maddon said Fowler did not experience a setback in a minor-league rehab appearance Friday. He also said he would have had no problem if Fowler had made his return from the disabled list in the All-Star game and not for the Cubs -- as long as he was well enough to play, and then we got him on Friday.Pirates: OF Gregory Polanco did not play a day after being removed from a win because of an aggravation of nagging left hamstring tightness. Manager Clint Hurdle indicated Polanco likely wont start Sunday, either. ... 2B Josh Harrison was lifted from the game in the third inning. The team termed the reason as left foot discomfort. Harrison drove in a run the inning prior when he was hit with a fastball in the foot.UP NEXTCubs: Sunday starter RHP John Lackey has gone 0-2 with a 7.56 ERA in his past three starts after going 7-3 with a 2.78 ERA in his first 14 startsPirates: LHP Jonathon Niese has lost his past two home starts, allowing 13 earned runs in 11 1/3 innings during them. Mateen Cleaves Jersey . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Ish Smith Pistons Jersey .
