BUFFALO, N. Andre Branch Jaguars Jersey .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres are shuffling their roster by promoting forward Phil Varone from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. The Sabres, on Wednesday, also demoted defenceman Brayden McNabb and forward Kevin Porter to Rochester. Varone is in his third season with Rochester, and leads the Americans with 33 points (eight goals, 25 assists) in 38 games this season. He gets an opportunity to make his NHL debut as early as Thursday, when Buffalo hosts Carolina. The Sabres (13-28-7) are last in the NHL and 0-2-2 in their past four. Porter has an assist in 12 games, and McNabb has no points in 12 games with Buffalo season. The moves provide Porter and McNabb an opportunity to continue developing in the minors during the NHL Olympic break, which opens Feb. 9. Jalen Ramsey Jaguars Jersey .

Santana would get a $3 million, one-year deal if added to the 40-man roster and would have the chance to earn an additional $5.05 million in roster and performance bonuses. He would receive the full amount for 120 days and 25 starts. The 34-year-old left-hander became a free agent after completing a $137.5 million, six-year contract with the New York Mets, who declined a $25 million option and paid a $5.5 million buyout. Santana, 139-78 with a 3.20 ERA in 12 seasons with Minnesota and the Mets, missed the 2011 season following shoulder surgery on Sept. 14, 2010, returned to pitch the Mets first no-hitter on June 1, 2012, then missed last season after an operation on April 2. The deal announced Tuesday follows Baltimores recent agreements with right-handers Ubaldo Jimenez and Suk-min Yoon, and outfielder Nelson Cruz. "I think its great," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Tuesday nights game against the New York Yankees. &"Im not going to say no risk, as far as, Im not the owner, but its another thing that Peter (Angelos) allowed us to do that puts us in position to get kind of lucky. Stefen Wisniewski Jaguars Jersey. Im not going to say its a no lose proposition. There are things you lose, but it makes a risk worth taking. I think its exciting, the possibility down the road." Santana is expected to report Wednesday. The Orioles are hopeful that he might be ready to pitch in the majors around June 1. Santana can earn $2.1 million in bonuses based on days on the active 25-man roster: $250,000 for 30, $350,000 for 60, $500,000 for 90 and $1 million for 120. He can make $2.95 million based on starts: $250,000 for five, $350,000 for 10, $500,000 for 15, $750,000 for 20, $150,000 each for 21 and 22, $200,000 apiece for 23 and 24, and $400,000 for 25. He has additional award bonuses for All-Star selection, and winning a Gold Glove and the Comeback Player of the Year and league championship series and World Series MVP awards. Santana would get $100,000 if he is released before March 25. He would be able to opt out of the deal if he isnt added to the major league roster by May 30. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' ' 
The Baltimore Ravens playoff run last season was pretty damn special. The Ravens finished the regular season at 10-6 and won the AFC North but it wasnt until the post-season that they really hit their stride. Buoyed by the return of Ray Lewis return from a torn triceps, the Ravens marched through the playoffs and beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 for their second Super Bowl, giving their captain a fitting send off for a Hall of Fame career. But the parade is over, the trip to the White House is done and the ring ceremony is in the past. After a major roster overhaul during a whirlwind off-season, the 2013 Ravens are going to look very different from the team that hoisted the Lombardi trophy back in February. Lewis rode off into the sunset, retiring following the Super Bowl victory as did veteran centre Matt Birk. Ed Reed left for Houston in free agency after a decade in Baltimore. Defensive starters Paul Kruger, Cary Williams and Dannell Ellerbe also signed elsewhere. Bernard Pollard was let go to save cap space. No. 1 receiver Anquan Boldin was dealt to the 49ers and full back Vonta Leach is gone too. Even special teams took a hit as vocal leader Brendon Ayanbadejo was released. Its a new era in Baltimore.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Cristiano Ronaldo scored a double and set up another goal for Real Madrid in a 4-1 comeback win over Getafe on Sunday in the Spanish league, as new teammate Gareth Bale couldnt make his home debut after injuring his leg before the match. Bale was dropped from Madrids starting lineup minutes before the match after the clubs medical staff examined his left thigh during warm-ups at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. The club said it was for "precaution" and that he would undergo tests Monday. Things only got worse for Madrids disappointed fans when Getafe forward Angel Lafita opened the scoring in the fifth minute. But Pepe scored from a rebound in the 19th before Ronaldo converted a penalty in the 33rd, set up Francisco "Isco" Alarcon in the 59th, and added another goal in injury time after Getafe had been reduced to 10 men. "Overall we played a good game. We were unlucky to start a goal behind, but I think our reaction was good," said Madrids first-year Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti. "Sometimes we play too far back in defence, but piano piano we are improving." Madrid remained undefeated through five rounds and is in third place in the standings, two points behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Villarreal also stayed unbeaten in its return to Spains top flight after drawing 0-0 at Celta Vigo. The same lack of finishing touch condemned Real Betis to a 0-0 finish against visiting Granada, leaving both teams with one win. Valencia enjoyed a much-needed 3-1 victory at home over Sevilla, breaking a four-game losing streak that included a 3-0 defeat to Swansea in the Europa League on Thursday. Brazilian forward Jonas scored twice for Valencia, netting in the 32nd and then again in the 73rd after Kevin Gameiro had levelled for Sevilla in the 52nd. Substitute Victor Ruiz headed in Valencias last goal in the 82nd and sparked the same Mestalla crowd that had protested after the Swansea loss into chants of "Yes! Thats the way!" Valencia president Amadeo Salva said after the match that new coach Miroslav Djukic will finish out the season "no matter what happens." The result left Unai Emerys Sevilla winless and in last place. Ronaldos 208th and 209th career goals for Madrid in 205 games moved him ahead of Hugo Sanchez as the clubs fifth all-time leading scorer. Raul Gonzalez holds the record with 323 goals. Ronaldo has scored seven goals in his last four games in all competitions for Madrid. If losing Bale for what was supposed to be his highly-anticipated first game in front of Madrids fans wasnt a big enough blow, Carlo Ancelottis side soon fell behind to their modest crosstown rivals. After Ronaldo had squandered back-to-back scoring chances, the Portugal forward lost the ball and Getafe struck when Lafitas resulting shot took a deflection off Pepe before landing in the net. But Ronaldo helped Madrid level when he drew a save from goalkeeper Miguel Moya, with the rebound falling for Pepe to tap in. Ronaldo put Madrid in front by driving a low spot kick just inside the post after Getafes Miguel "Michel" Marcos blocked his free kick with his arm inside the area. Ronaldos quickly taken free kick left Isco alone in the area to curl in his fourth goal in the league play. "It didnt matter that Bale wasnt there, Isco took his place," said Getafe coach Luis Garcia. "All their players are good. With Madrid you cant talk about them missing players." Getafe played the final five minutes with 10 men after Michel was sent off with a direct red card for fouling Jese Rodriguez with only Moya to beat. Ronaldo, who had clipped the post in the 79th, got his well-earned brace when he used a brazen back-heeled shot with his right boot to redirect Sami Khediras cross into the net. Madrid paid Tottenham a world-record 100 million euros ($132 million) for Bale at the close of the summer transfer market. Ancelotti said Bales injury didnt appear to be serious. "(Bale) wasnt comfortable or calm. I preferred to prevent any problems," said Ancelotti. "He isnt happy because he was very excited to play in the Bernabeu." The next chance Madrids fans will have to see Bale at home will be next Saturday against Atletico Madrid in the Spanish capital derby.

Watch all the action unfold live on TSN2 at 8pm et/5pm pt. Iona is 1-1 on the young season, the team opening with a 73-69 loss at Cleveland State on Nov. 9, but bouncing back with a 76-55 home victory over Wofford a week later. The Gaels are preparing for the rigors of Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play, which for them begins at home against Marist on Dec. 4. Kansas is undefeated after two games, with its initial win coming at home over ULM, 80-63, and its second in a marquee matchup in Chicago against Duke last Tuesday, 94-83. The Jayhawks, who moved into the second spot in this weeks AP poll, have won 64 consecutive home games against non-conference foes, and the team is gearing up for what should be another highly competitive slate of Big 12 Conference bouts. KU begins league play at Oklahoma on Jan. 8, 2014. This game marks only the fourth all-time meeting between Iona and Kansas, with the Jayhawks winning two of the first three, the most recent of which took place in Kansas City back in 1988. Its only been two games, one of which resulted in a loss, but Iona is already establishing itself as a team that can boast some pretty potent scorers. Sean Armand is averaging 18.5 ppg, David Laury 17.0 ppg and Isaiah Williams 13.5 ppg, helping the squad put up 72.5 ppg despite shooting just 41.3 percent from the field. The Gaels defensive effort has been decent, with foess generating just 64 ppg in hitting their shots a mere 38.dddddddddddd9 percent of the time. Laury led the team in the first game with 19 points, while Armand was high man in the win over Wofford with 20. In that latter contest, Williams added 19 points, and Laury finished with 15 for a club that struggled in the first half (.290 FG percentage), but turned it on after intermission (.680). Williams and Armand combined for eight 3-pointers. The Gaels easily won the rebounding battle (37-24), and used a 15-7 edge in points from the foul line to put the game away. Kansas has no shortage of talented players who can all but take over a game at the drop of the hat. Most of the spotlight has been turned on freshman sensation Andrew Wiggins, and he hasnt disappointed as he currently leads the team in scoring at 19.0 ppg. Wiggins is coming off a 22-point effort in the win over Duke, and he was also one of the top rebounders as well with eight caroms. Perry Ellis (18.0 ppg) actually paced the Jayhawks in the statement victory, scoring 24 points while also grabbing nine boards, and both Wayne Selden, Jr. (11.5 ppg) and Frank Mason made significant contributions as well, netting 15 points apiece. Kansas made good on 56.1 percent of its field goal attempts, but allowed the Blue Devils to connect on 51.7 percent of their total shots. A 39-24 edge in rebounding, along with a 27-16 advantage in points from the foul line played an integral role in the outcome for coach Bill Selfs club. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
While NHL Central Scoutings mid-term draft ranking has Kingston Frontenacs centre Sam Bennett topping the list of North American skaters, TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button is standing pat with the other Sam. His January edition of Craigs List has Kootenay Ice centre Sam Reinhart at No. 1 for the fourth straight month. Reinhart represented Canada at the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship, and tied for fourth in team scoring with two goals and five points in seven games. "Sam Reinhart will never wow you with flash and dash and may never even end up on TSNs HON but if you are looking for a player who can make a difference to winning, then look no further," explains Button. "He has exceptional hockey sense but more than his understanding is his adaptability. That trait allows him to play different positions, all situations in the game and combined with a high skill level, affords him the opportunity to excel. He makes teammates better by helping them play to their strengths. He make teams better with a selfless approach that is focused on overall success, not personal accolades. "Because his mind is so quick and so fast at processing, he is able to play two and three steps ahead of the competition. When I watch Sam, I think, still waters run deep and his ability to quietly control a game doesnt create waves but it certainly leads to winning." Aaron Ekblad, who also played for Canada at the world, continues to be a mainstay in the second spot. He grabbed headlines in the Ontario Hockey League this past weekend, scoring four goals (three on the power play and one shorthanded) as the Barrie Colts hammered Bennetts Frontenacs 8-5 on Saturday. "Ekblad is a pillar-type defenceman," says Button. "To be this type of a defenceman, one needs to possess an on-ice maturity. That maturity is reflected in understanding how to excel when playing 25 minutes or more versus the opponents best players in critical and important situations. "Aaron combines that maturity with an excellent understanding of what needs to be accomplished at any particular point of the game. He has an outstanding ability to play in the moment and that can manifest itself defensively, offensively and physically. He takes the initiative and is unwavering in his approach to being a catalyst for making things happen in the game that help his team win." Bennett is also holding strong on the list, rounding out the Top 3 for the third straight month. The biggest riser on the list for January is Czech-born forward David Pastrnak, who jumped 16 spots from No. 26 to tenth. He has scored seven goals and 21 points in 29 games with Sodertalje in Sweden this season and tallied three points in five games with the Czech Republic at the world juniors. "When I first saw David Pastrnak play more than two years ago, I was impressed by a willingness to try and make things happen with the puck from an offensive point of view," explains Button. "While at times coming a little short, he never was short on determination or being a player in the middle of the competitive action. He has confidence with the puck, excellent sense and feel and his skating allows him to play the game with speed and with a quick and darting ability that makes him very difficult to keep in check. "As he has physically matured, he doesnt fall short very much any longer and he shows the ability and potential to be a player who can impact the game offensively in multiple ways and be the threat opponents have to be aware of."

Vettel only needs to finish fifth or better Sunday to wrap up the championship with three races remaining, and bettered his own lap record to claim his third straight pole at Buddh International Circuit. The German has won both previous Indian GP races, leading every lap. He clocked 1 minute, 24.119 seconds to beat his nearest rival by 0.7 seconds. Nico Rosberg will share the front of the grid after finishing second, with fellow Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton third and Red Bulls Mark Webber fourth. "Its a very good result for the team with Mark sitting in fourth behind those guys," Vettel said. Red Bull can also make it the fourth straight double of drivers and constructors titles if Ferrari fails to outscore it by more than 19 points. Felipe Massa starts from fifth, while Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso could only manage eighth. "Im starting 8th so I have to recover this position somewhere in the race," Alonso said of his chance of a podium finish. "The soft tires may last with good conditions ... but if the soft are a disaster tomorrow, people in front will have problems." Romain Grosjean, who was expected to challenge for the podium, was eliminated in the first round of qualifying after Lotus gamble on sticking with medium tires backfired. The Frenchman will start from 17th on the grid. "We just missed the cut-off time, everyone went quicker than we thought," Grosjean said. "Today, for some reason, the medium (tires) were not quick enough. Its a decision we took together, we were confident we could do enough with them but we got it wrong." Vettel and Webber chose differing tire strateggies for qualifying, with Vettel electing to use the quicker but fragile soft compound for the third round and race start, and Webber preferring the medium compound.dddddddddddd "Which works out to be the right strategy, well find out tomorrow. But the race is long and well have plenty of time to make up," Vettel said. "In the end I think the strategy shouldnt determine the result that much." Vettel has dominated since arriving in India, leading all three practice sessions. "The cars been very strong since Friday morning," Vettel said. "We didnt have to adjust that much." Rosberg said Mercedes had pushed his car to its limits to make him as competitive as possible. "Up to now its been successful," he said. "On a knifes edge all the time, but for now its worked and it seems were a step forward from where we were in recent races." Hamilton, while happy with qualifying, was pessimistic of his chances of challenging the Red Bulls. "Im really happy with the result and the lap time I was able to get. ... Well try and push these guys as hard as possible in the race obviously," he said. "Theyre in another world, but well try and stay ahead of the rest." Force India failed to qualify in the top 10 for its home race, with Paul Di Resta and Adrian Sutil eliminated in the second round in 12 and 13th respectively. The start of the morning third practice session was delayed by 20 minutes after organizers deemed the haze over the track would prevent the races medical helicopter from flying. Seasonal atmospheric conditions have produced dense morning mists at Greater Noida, with similar conditions forecast for Sunday. Massa said visibility was not an issue for the drivers.

Maybe a baseball team should borrow him the next time some summer storms are in the forecast. The pair of stoppages, due to a leak in the Verizon Center roof on a rainy day, would have been more than enough to make the game memorable, but why stop there? Lets have Howard and his heavily favoured team play like gangbusters each time the water was mopped up. Then blow a 25-point lead. Then come from five down in the fourth quarter to win it. Yep, that Houston Rockets 114-107 win over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night was somethin else altogether. "The craziest game ever?" Howard said. "Yeah, I would say that." Long after the delays of 35 and 22 minutes, James Harden tied the score with a driving layup with 2:33 to play, then gave the Rockets the lead again -- this time for good -- with a three-point play with 1:54 remaining. He finished with 25 points to lead the Rockets, who made only four field goals in the final period yet closed with a 17-5 run. "It was a long game," Harden said. "A leakage in the court. Ive never been a part of something like that before." Neither had Howard, who ran the gamut of good and bad. He did the most to keep the fans engaged during the interruptions in play, signing an autograph or two and playing with the youngsters. The crowd reacted with exaggerated gasps when Howard would slap a shot in the seats -- "They told me to protect the house," Howard joked -- and cheered when one of the kids scored. "Ive got to work on my defence," Howard deadpanned, "if I want to get defensive player of the year." Howard also dominated the game well into the second half before falling apart in the fourth quarter, committing four turnovers and missing both of his field goals and all four free throw attempts. He finished with 23 points. "I did OK," Howard said. "I think in the second half I didnt finish like I needed to. I wasnt as aggressive as I was in the first half." Teerrence Jones added 19 points and 17 rebounds, and Jeremy Lin added 18 points and eight assists for the Rockets, who are 1-1 halfway through a four-game road trip.dddddddddddd John Wall led Washingtons comeback and finished with 23 points and 10 assists, Trevor Ariza had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Kevin Seraphin -- another catalyst in Washingtons surge -- had all of his season-high 18 points in the second half. The Wizards lost their fourth straight home game and fell to 2-14 against teams that are currently .500 or better. "Now I wish they would have just cancelled it," Washington coach Randy Wittman said. The leak caused the officials to hit the pause button 9 seconds into the second quarter and again at the start of the second half. Trash cans and an array of towels were spread at the midcourt line close to the scorers table. Several people were in the rafters, apparently trying to solve the problem. The wet mess was an obvious black eye for the Wizards franchise, and the team seemed intent on matching it with their play. After shooting 62 per cent in the first quarter, Washington made only 6 of 24 field goal attempts (25 per cent) for the rest of the half. The Rockets went on a 34-13 run to seemingly break open a tie game after the first delay. The towels and trash cans reappeared after halftime. Wittman said the leak was finally stopped after a tarp was laid on the arenas roof. The Rockets, already with a 17-point lead, again were able to get themselves in gear faster than the Wizards, going on a 15-7 run after the restart. But the Wizards eventually regrouped and came back. Then the Rockets came back. The wet floor never did. "Obviously weve had a lot of rain here," Wittman said. "And obviously theres a hole up there somewhere." NOTES: The Rockets are 11-3 against the Eastern Conference; the Wizards are 3-9 against the West. ... Houston F Chandler Parsons missed his third consecutive game with a sore right knee. ... Washington has lost seven of eight at home, another frustration for Wittman. "We just go out and play like its an AAU game," the coach said. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
(SportsNetwork.com) - Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced Monday that he will next fight fellow welterweight titleholder Marcos Maidana on May 3. "I will be fighting Marcos Maidana May 3rd on Pay-per-view Showtime/CBS," Mayweather said on his Twitter account. The fight will be the third of the 30-month, six-fight deal worth $200 million-plus that Mayweather signed with Showtime and parent network CBS last February.

LOUIS -- The owners of the Edward Jones Dome said Tuesday they are hopeful the St. Louis Rams wont leave after city leaders rejected $700 million in publicly funded upgrades sought by the team under a clause some officials now regret signing. The Rams can break their 30-year lease after the 2014 season -- a decade early -- but have said little about their plans beyond expressing an interest to stay. That isnt keeping stadium boosters from hoping for the best. "Everything is in play," said attorney James Shrewsbury, chairman of the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, which owns the downtown dome. "Theres nothing off the table." The lease requires that the dome, which opened when the Rams arrived from southern California in 1995, remain among the top quarter of the 32 NFL stadiums. It was built with money from city, St. Louis County and Missouri taxpayers. The St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission, which manages the dome, last year offered a $124 million improvement plan that included a bigger scoreboard and better club seating, with the Rams paying slightly more half those costs. The team countered with a far more ambitious proposal that called for a new roof with a sliding panel and a bevy of improvements that would keep the city convention centre in the dome closed for three years. The team didnt put a price tag on its request, but city officials estimated the upgrades would cost $700 million. Missouri Gov..ddddddddddddJay Nixon has taken over negotiations with Rams owner Stan Kroenke after arbitration between the team, the commission and the stadium authority failed. Visitors commission chairman Andrew Leonard said hes been assured by Nixon that keeping the Rams in St. Louis is a top priority. The city has already lost one NFL franchise -- the football Cardinals moved to Arizona after the 1987 season when owner Bill Bidwill was unable to get a stadium of his own rather than share Busch Stadium with the baseball Cardinals. "The governor told me he was going to (keep the Rams in St. Louis)," Leonard said Tuesday during a quarterly meeting of the sports authoritys governing board. "I took him at his word." Leonard served on that very board two decades ago, helping to craft the lease that could lead to the Rams departure. He wasnt circumspect about its long-term value. "That was the best deal we could get," he told the board. "We did what we could...Its the price we paid for getting the Rams." A Rams spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Rams opposed the public release of their stadium proposal, but Missouris attorney general released the plan under the states public records laws. Nixons office also did not respond to an interview request. The Rams are reportedly considering several stadium locations in St. Louis County, where the teams practice facility and headquarters are located. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
With the Tom Brady- Peyton Manning rivalry so well documented, theres no doubt Sundays AFC Championship game comes with added significance to the two first-ballot Hall of Famers. Steve Young 49ers Jersey . It will be their 15th head-to-head meeting and fourth in the post-season (Sunday at 2pm et/11am pt on CTV) and for his part, Brady isnt downplaying just how big the game is for him. "Im excited - Its everything you could ask for as an athlete," the New England Patriots quarterback told WEEI Radio in Boston on Monday. "We have a great opportunity ahead of us. It would be as satisfying a victory as weve ever had to go to Denver and win this game." With a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, theres no shortage of motivation for Sundays game, but its another chance for the two to stake claim to the title best QB of their generation. Brady owns the series edge over Manning 10-4 and is 2-1 head-to-head in the postseason. Sundays game will tie the two for most postseason meetings with other iconic rivals Brett Favre and Steve Young, and Terry Bradshaw and Ken Stabler. Brady knows as well as anyone about the challenge Manning and the Broncos offence presents. "Hes got great command of the offence," he said. "He can pretty much do whatever he wants. He obviously has a lot of confidence in what hes doing and he has confidence in the guys around him. "Once he sees the coverage, he tries to get the plays that can beat the coverage. It really forces the defense to play very solid, to cover everything. Because if you dont then he does a great job finding the holes." While the Broncos finished the regular season atop the AFC standings and will enjoy home field advantage on Sunday, the Patriots came out ahead in their only meeting this season, a 34-31 overtime win in late November. Still, Brady says that means little come game time. "Theres nothing thats happened in the past thats going to help us try to win this game on Sunday," he said. "Well be able to take some things from the game we played and study them and prepare for them. But well have different things to do, theyll have different things to do. Their team is different than from when they played us, and were pretty different from when we played them." Denver opens the week as 4 1/2 point favourites, but Brady puts little stock in what the experts think ahead of the game. "Truthfully, I dont turn the TV on, I dont read anything," he said. I just try to focus on what I need to do. "Im sure no ones going to pick us to win this week. Weve had our backs against the wall for a while. Really the whole season weve lost players and teams have really counted us out. "Weve got a bunch of underdogs on our team, and well be an underdog again. Well see how that shapes up here at the end of the week. But I know that were as tough and physical as weve ever been, and thats the way were going to need to go out and play this game." Tom Rathman Jersey . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. Phil Dawson Jersey . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. http://www.thenflsf49ersfanatic.com/c-46-49ers-brandon-thomas-jersey.aspx . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at .KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Indianapolis Colts had watched the Kansas City Chiefs march downfield for an easy score on the first series of the game, yet nobody on their sideline seemed to be worried. In fact, it seemed as if their confidence soared. Andrew Luck answered by calmly picking apart the Chiefs defence, Donald Brown had touchdowns running and receiving, and the Colts didnt allow another point the rest of the way in a 23-7 victory Sunday that could turn into a preview of an AFC wild-card game. If Indianapolis ends up as the No. 4 seed in the playoffs and with the Chiefs assured of the fifth seed, the two teams would meet again in two weeks at Lucas Oil Stadium. Kansas Citys chances of winning the AFC West were dashed earlier Sunday when Denver beat Houston. "There was no panic," said the Colts Jerrell Freeman, who had two interceptions. "When they got that touchdown we were like, Aww, its OK. Its just execution, and us not trying to panic." Instead, it was the Chiefs (11-4) who looked as if they panicked. Alex Smith threw for 153 yards, but he fumbled once and was picked off twice. Knile Davis also fumbled the ball away, and the Chiefs were hit with several key penalties that scuttled any chance of mounting a second-half comeback in the frigid weather at Arrowhead Stadium. "Well see them again," Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said. "Theyve got the upper hand on us right now because in their minds they think they can beat us. If we go down there, it will be a different story. But weve got to fight our way back." The AFC South-champion Colts (10-5) have beaten the Chiefs in five of their last six games. Jamaal Charles ran for 106 yards and the games opening score, but Kansas City failed to keep him involved as the Colts scored the final 23 points. Luck finished with 241 yards passing, while Brown gashed a decent run defence despite working behind a patchwork offensive line. Adam Vinatieri also had three field goals for the Colts, who didnt commit a turnover. "Thats what coach (Chuck) Pagano has preached since Ive been with the club," Luck said. "Limit turnovers on offence and create turnovers on defence." Early on, the Chiefs appeared as if they weree going to pick up right where they left off last week, when they hung 56 points on the Raiders. Dwight Clark 49ers Jersey. . They marched downfield on the opening drive, and Charles took a carry around the right side 31 yards for a touchdown. The Colts defence stiffened after that, though, and the closest Kansas City came to scoring again in the first half came when Ryan Succop yanked a 47-yard field goal wide left. "It was a team effort in not a very good way," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "You cant pull your foot off the accelerator when you get out that quick." Meanwhile, Indianapolis kept taking advantage of breakdowns in the Kansas City pass defence, the most glaring one coming after running back Knile Davis fumbled in the second quarter. Brown leaked out of the backfield unnoticed by the Kansas City defence, Luck hit him with a dump-off pass that he took virtually untouched 33 yards for a score. "I think they busted the coverage," Brown said, "so that made my job a lot easier." Browns job wasnt a whole lot tougher when the Colts got the ball back in the third quarter off Smiths interception. He raced through a gaping hole, then tight-rope walked down the sideline 51 yards for a score — a video review showed that he somehow stayed inbounds. Vinatieri added to the Colts cushion with his third field goal, capping a drive kept alive by a defensive hold and a taunting penalty after the Chiefs had already held on third down. Smith was picked off again by Freeman in the end zone midway through the fourth quarter, and then the quarterback fumbled the ball away with 3:24 left to seal the game. "The way we opened up, marching down the way we did, it felt like things were going to be the way theyve been," Smith said. "We really didnt get into a rhythm after that, didnt execute in any area, and then the turnovers. The turnovers hurt you." NOTES: Vinatieri has now scored 1,993 points, passing fellow kicker Jason Elam for seventh on the NFLs career list. ... Three of the Chiefs four losses have come at Arrowhead Stadium. ... Kansas City had scored 101 points the last two weeks. ... The Colts started their seventh offensive line combination and fifth in five games. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' ' 
DETROIT -- The banged-up Pittsburgh Penguins took another hit. Pepe Real Madrid Jersey . They just hope its not a big one. Evgeni Malkin had a goal and two assists before hurting his left leg early in the third period of Pittsburghs 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. "He was walking around after the game," Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. Malkin was in fact walking, but with a noticeable limp. He got tangled up with Detroits Luke Glendening, lost his balance and his left skate took the brunt of a collision with the boards behind Pittsburghs net. Malkin slowly got up and kept his left skate in the air as he was helped off the ice. He was called for holding on the play, but couldnt serve the penalty because he was being evaluated. Malkin moved past the 600-point mark for his career during the game and ranks among league leaders with 41 points this season. NHL scoring leader Sidney Crosby scored two goals to help the Penguins win without standout defenceman Kris Letang, who was a late scratch because of an upper-body injury. "Losing Kris before the game was tough," Crosby said. "We stuck with it and found a way." Pittsburgh defenceman Brooks Orpik hasnt played since being punched Dec. 7 by Bostons Shawn Thornton, who was suspended by the league for 15 games on Saturday. The Penguins might lose another player from their blue line because the NHL is trying to crack down on blows above the shoulders. Defenceman Deryk Engelland put himself in danger of being suspended for an illegal hit to the head. Engelland landed his right shoulder high on Detroit forward Justin Abdelkader late in the first period and was ejected with a match penalty. Abdelkader struggled to get up, had to be helped off the ice and didnt return. "He dumps it in and I try to finish my check," Engelland said. "Obviously Im not trying to hit him in the head or anything like that, but I think I catch his chin a little bit before his body." Detroit defenceman Brendan Smith was suspended for five games two years ago for a similar hit. "I know what it feels like because Ive been in that position," Smith said. "Its a quick game, things happen." Pittsburghs Jeff Zatkoff made 28 saves, getting the start in part because he was playing near his hometown of Sterling Heights, Mich. "He was pretty pumped up about playing back here at Joe Louis against the Red Wings," Bylsma said. "He was strong." Jonas Gustavsson gave up three goals on 13 shots through two periods, playing in place of injured starter Jimmy Howard, and finished with 21 saves. "When you let four goals in its tough to win," he said. "I got to be better." The Red Wings got off to a good start. They went ahead 1-0 at 6:09 of the first period when Niklas Kronwalls shot just inside the blue line went off Crosbys stick, bounced off the ice and got past Zatkoff. The lead didnt last long. Detroit went to the penalty box twice midway through the first period and the NHLs top team on the power play took advantage. Crosby scored at 9:08 of the first and Malkin made it 2-1 at the 12:50 mark of the period. The Red Wings outshot Pittsburgh 14-4 in the second, which started with them on the power play for four-plus minutes because of Engellands penalty, but didnt score. "We didnt do enough with it," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "We had some looks. Their guy made some saves, but we were perimeter on the power play. Power play is establishing a net-front presence, shooting the puck and getting it back and outworking them to get retrievals and be on top of them." Olli Maatta gave Pittsburgh a two-goal lead in the final minute of the second period. Crosby, who started the night with an NHL-high 44 points, scored his second goal with five-plus minutes left. "We started well on the power play and then were able to shut them down on the five-minute power play," Crosby said. "That was an important part of the game." NOTES: Bylsma (U.S.) and Babcock (Canada) will lead their countries in two months at the Winter Olympics. ... Penguins D Brian Dumoulin made his NHL debut. James Rodriguez Real Madrid Jersey . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers are right back in the hunt for the NFC South division title and a first-round bye in the playoffs. Cam Newton threw for 273 yards and a touchdown, Captain Munnerlyn had two sacks and returned an interception for a score and the Panthers bounced back from their most lopsided loss of the season with a 30-20 win Sunday over the New York Jets. With New Orleans losing 27-16 to St. Louis, the Panthers (10-4) have pulled even with the Saints with the rematch set for next Sunday in Charlotte. If Carolina wins its final two games, it will clinch the division and the first-round bye. The Panthers havent been to the post-season since 2008. Carolinas defence, which surrendered 313 yards and four touchdowns in a 31-13 loss to New Orleans, came up big limiting rookie quarterback Geno Smith to 167 yards passing, while sacking him four times. Munnerlyn intercepted Smith in the fourth quarter and returned it 42 yards for a touchdown to seal the win. Newton was an efficient 16 of 24 passing, including a 72-yard touchdown on a screen pass to DeAngelo Williams. Williams had 81 yards rushing and 87 yards receiving. Smith was 15 of 28 with a touchdown pass and one costly interception in the fourth quarter for the fading Jets (6-8), who will be eliminated from playoff contention if Baltimore wins at Detroit on Monday night. Jeff Cumberland had a touchdown catch, and rookie defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson bulldozed his way for a 1-yard touchdown run on a goal-line play. The turning point came in the fourth quarter with the Panthers leading 16-13. The Jets had a chance to take the lead, but failed to pick up a first down and Ryan Quigleys punt was blocked by Jason Williams and downed at the Jets 14. Four plays later, bruising fullback Mike Tolbert bowled his way into the end zone on a 1-yard run to make it a two-possession game. "That play really kind of sparked us," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said of Williams blocked punt. On New Yorks next series, Munnerlyn then stepped in front of a slant route for his fifth career interception return for touchdown -- a new franchise record. It was also a little revenge for the Panthers secondary, which Jets receiver Santonio Holmes referred to as "the weakest link" of Carolinas defence. "Captain is a dynamo and had a really good week of practice and it showed," Rivera said. "I told him he set the bar really high for next week." The Panthers broke open a 6-6 tie late in the first quarter when Newton faked a screen pass to the left, spun around and threw back to the other side of the field to a wide-open Williams. The 30-year-old running back beat linebacker David Harris to the right sideline and turned it up the field, getting a smothering block from wide receiver Brandon LaFell en route to a 72-yard touchdown reception. Graham Gano, who had earlier hit from 35 and 22 yards out, tacked on his third field goal of the first half from 40 yards to give the Panthers a 16-6 lead at halftime. The Jets ran for 93 yards in the first half -- the most against the Panthers in nine weeks -- but could only manage a pair of field goals by Nick Folk. Carolina led by 10 in the third quarter and Rivera went for a knockout blow on a fourth-and-2 at the Jets 14. But Quinton Coples broke up a pass by Newton and the Jets briefly seized the momentum. Smith drove the Jets 86 yards on nine plays with Richardson, a 6-foot-3, 294-pound defensive tackle, capping the drive on a 1-yard touchdown plunge to trim the lead to 16-13. Moncler Coats Outlet. Vettel, who has already clinched his fourth straight F1 title, enters the finale with a chance to equal Michael Schumachers 13 victories in a year and match the record of nine consecutive wins by Alberto Ascari in the 1952 and 1953 seasons.
