DENVER -- Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons didnt need another 300-yard performance from Julio Jones to decipher Denvers dazzling defense and wreck Paxton Lynchs first NFL start with a 23-16 win over Broncos on Sunday. Cam Ward Jersey .Using a steady dose of I-formation runs and short passes that put Denvers linebackers in coverage, the Falcons (4-1) handed the Super Bowl champs their first loss since Dec. 20 at Pittsburgh and left the Minnesota Vikings (5-0) as the NFLs last unbeaten team.The Broncos (4-1) were on their heels having to respect the play-action because Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman were so effective running the ball, combining for 119 yards and a 4.4-yard average.A week after setting a franchise record with 503 yards passing in a runaway win over Super Bowl 50s other participant, the Carolina Panthers, Ryan threw for 267 yards Sunday and only two of those (covering 29 yards) went to Jones.Last week, Jones became just the sixth 300-yard receiver in NFL annals, not that Denvers No Fly Zone defense was impressed. They dismissed that performance as a bad day by the Panthers, and they stifled Jones all afternoon.Not that it mattered.Coleman, who played despite having sickle cell trait, which can sometimes be exacerbated at altitude, showed off his breakaway speed by catching four passes for 132 yards to go with his 31 yards on six carries.Ryans rather modest total included a 31-yard touchdown toss to Coleman following Ricardo Allens interception at the Denver 42 in the third quarter that made it 20-3.That sequence sent some flustered fans streaming for the exits as the Falcons finished off the Broncos, who hadnt lost at home since Dec. 13 against Oakland.The Broncos dont have much time to digest the loss. They play at San Diego on Thursday night, and their hope is that Trevor Siemians bruised left shoulder is healed by then.Lynch, the 26th overall pick out of Memphis last April, got the starting nod because Siemians bruised A.C. joint in his non-throwing shoulder was still bothering him a week after he was flung to the turf in Tampa.It was Lynch who showed he wasnt ready Sunday, however.He completed 23 of 35 passes for 223 yards with a late TD to Demaryius Thomas and an interception. He was sacked a half-dozen times, including 3 1/2 times by outside linebacker Vic Beasley, who burned right tackle Ty Sambrailo on three of those takedowns.Lynchs footwork was a mess and his overthrows and misfires ruined any chance the Broncos had of capitalizing on the leagues 30th ranked defense, including the NFLs next-to-last pass defense and a patchwork linebacker corps .Unlike Siemian, Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, all of whom did enough to allow Denvers stout defense to secure the win during an NFL-best nine-game winning streak, Lynch couldnt avoid mistakes that doomed his team to defeat. He constantly held onto the ball too long and too often didnt make decisions or moves fast enough.PROTECTION PROBLEMS: It didnt help Denver that right tackle Donald Stephenson (calf) was deactivated for a third straight week. Ty Sambrailo was repeatedly burned by Beasley before the Broncos moved right guard Michael Schofield over and inserted Darrion Weems.GROUNDED GROUND GAME: The Broncos ground game has ground to a near standstill ever since Stephenson and tight end Virgil Green pulled calf muscles in Week 2. After averaging 141 yards and 4.7 yards a carry in their first two games, the Broncos nosedived to 70 yards and 2.5 yards a carry in next two games. Green and Stephenson were surprise holdouts Sunday and the Broncos gained just 84 yards on two dozen handoffs.MILLER TIME: Even in defeat, Von Miller got to the quarterback. He recorded a sack and now has 6 1/2 on the season.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: Scott Darling Jersey . The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. Justin Faulk Jersey . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year. "We talked about wanting to be disciplined and stick with our game plan and good things will come," Draisaitl said, who had two goals for the victors. . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. LUBBOCK, Texas -- Chris Beard doesnt want a grace period for winning at Texas Tech.Theres no two- or three-year plan for the 43-year-old first-year coach to make the Red Raiders more competitive in the Big 12.Hes brought in six new players, including three graduate transfers.We expect to win immediately, Beard said. We do have a lot of pieces. The challenge is to try to put this together quickly. Thats the challenge in trying to be successful year one.Last year, Beard led Arkansas-Little Rock to its best season in school history, guiding the Trojans to an 85-83 double overtime thriller over No. 12-ranked and fifth-seeded Purdue in the NCAA Tournament.In April, he was hired to coach in Lubbock, where hed been an assistant for 10 years under Bob Knight and Pat Knight. He had accepted the job at UNLV in late March and jilted the school after learning that Texas Tech was looking for a replacement for Tubby Smith, who left to coach Memphis.Beard said Smith elevated the program in his three years with the Red Raiders, calling the Hall of Fame coachs time in Lubbock legendary.The Red Raiders havent had a winning Big 12 record since 2006-07, when Beard was an assistant under Bob Knight. Texas Tech finished seventh in the Big 12 last season (19-13, 9-9). They lost in the first round of the NCAA to Butler.Beards aim is to lift the program in the Big 12 standings and beyond.Wed like to join the top half of the league, he said. Then we would like to join the top tier of the league. We want to be in the conversation for championships. To do that is a process, but you have to start by being willing to talk about and I wont shy away from that.Here are some things to know about the Red Raiders, who open their season at home NNov. Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys. 11 against Houston Baptist:MESHING PLAYERS AND MATURITYGetting the six new players -- three graduate transfers and three junior college players -- on the same page has gone well, Beard said. Even though were an inexperienced team playing together, were an experienced team with different parts, he said. And so hopefully our identity is going to be our experience, our maturity and these six seniors.TALLER TEAMThe Red Raiders have five players 6-8 and taller. Two of them, 6-9 center Norense Odiase and 6-8 forward Zach Smith, are returning starters. At 6-8, forward Aaron Ross came off the bench, and Matthew Temple, a 6-10 senior forward, didnt play a lot. The newcomer is 6-8 Anthony Livingston, who is graduate student who played last year at Arkansas State.REBOUNDING REBOUNDThe Red Raiders finished ninth in the conference last season at just 34 rebounds per game and hope to improve on that. The taller players will help but there has to be a willingness to get to the boards. I think our rebounds will be better than last year, said Smith who averaged 7.3 rebounds per game last season to finish sixth in the Big 12. It wont be as problematic.MOTION OFFENSEBeard spent almost a decade learning the motion offense from Bob Knight. Hell use that and plenty of pick and roll that he learned coaching in the ABA and the Swiss national team during a summer off while he was coach at Angelo State in 2014. Its just a unique style of play, so we feel like we have the best of both worlds, Beard said.Odiase loves the combo offense: We know that it causes a lot of problems for the defenses. Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College JerseysCheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys ' ' '
