Tournament favourite Tottenham ground out a 2-0 win at FC Sheriff to stay undefeated in the Europa League and move to the brink of qualification for the knockout stages on Thursday. Cheap Laremy Tunsil Jersey . Eintracht Frankfurt, Fiorentina, Salzburg and Ludogorets Razgrad also made it three wins out of three, while Swansea, Sevilla, Rubin Kazan and Genk dropped their first points as they were all held to 1-1 draws. Jan Vertonghen headed Christian Eriksens free kick into the left of goal with Spurs first attack of the night in the 12th minute and Jermain Defoe sealed the result 15 minutes from time, equaling Martin Chivers club record with his 22nd goal in European competition after the English side withstood severe pressure from Sheriff. The Moldovan team had the ball in the back of the net on the half hour but the equalizer was ruled out for offside. "They had some great opportunities on the counterattack," Tottenham coach Andre Villas-Boas said. "The game could have easily gone to 1-1 as after we scored they had so many chances to level. "They looked good on the counterattack, had some great moments and we have to recognise that. A draw would be a fair result, but the second goal is always important in games like this, so both teams were creating. We were fortunate to get the second goal to kill the game, but it could have gone the other way." Tottenham has yet to concede in the opening three games this season and is five points clear of Anji Makhachkala, which beat Tromso 1-0. Frankfurt also kept a third straight clean sheet as it won 2-0 at home against 10-man Maccabi Tel Aviv. The visitors were forced to play 56 minutes at a numerical disadvantage after Ben Haim was sent off for a second bookable offence. Vaclav Kadlec put Frankfurt in front in the 13th minute and Alexander Meier doubled the German sides lead eight minutes into the second half. In the other Group F game, Bordeaux picked up its first points of the campaign as Carlos Henrique headed home in the final minute to hand the French side a 2-1 win over Apoel Nicosia. Ludogorets Razgrad has also yet to concede after the Bulgarian team won 1-0 at Chornomorets Odesa. Fiorentina, which came back from two goals down to beat Juventus 4-2 in Serie A at the weekend, comfortably beat Romanian side Pandurii Targu-Jiu 3-0 to maintain its status as one of the competition favourites. Joaquin opened the scoring in the 26th minute after skipping past two defenders and forcing his way into the area. Ryder Matos doubled Fiorentinas lead eight minutes later before Juan Cuadrado sealed the result in the 69th, squeezing a powerful strike in between the goalkeeper and the near post. Oleksandr Yakovenko also hit the crossbar for Fiorentina, while Cuadrado fired off the upright in stoppage time. "Were not running away with the group but weve almost qualified for the next round," Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella said. "But we want top spot so we avoid drawing a Champions League team in the knockout stages. "When you come off the back of a victory like the one against Juventus, its not easy to remain focused. But we managed to and we showed that on the pitch tonight. We want to grow more." Meanwhile, Valencia won over its disgruntled fans with a fine 5-1 victory over Swiss side St. Gallen. Valencia was stunned by a 3-0 defeat to Swansea in its opening Europa League match but recovered with a 2-0 win at Kuban Krasnodar on matchday two. It is now just one point behind Swansea after a late goal saw the English Premier League side held to 1-1 by Kuban Krasnodar, which had no points and had not even scored heading into the match. Former Liverpool and Marseille striker Djibril Cisse scored from the spot in stoppage time after Ibrahima Balde was fouled by Swansea goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel. Michu broke the deadlock in the 68th. Womens Dan Marino Jersey .com) - The Carolina Hurricanes were shut out in their most recent trip to the ice, but their offensive struggles are nowhere near as alarming as what is currently plaguing the Calgary Flames. Cheap Ryan Tannehill Jersey .Y. - A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press reliever Carlos Marmol and the Miami Marlins have agreed to a $1.College Park, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Coming off a pair of tough losses last week, the Syracuse Orange will try to put an end to their first losing skid of the season when they pay a visit to the Maryland Terrapins at the Comcast Center on Monday night in Atlantic Coast Conference action. You catch all of the action live on TSN at 7pm et./4pm pt. Syracuse was cruising right along with wins in each of its first 25 games, but after a shocking home loss to Boston College last Wednesday (62-59), it ventured to Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday and battled wire-to-wire with Duke before losing 66-60 following a controversial ending that resulted in head coach Jim Boeheims ejection. At 12-2 in the ACC, the Orange have slid out of the drivers seat in the league standings, as they are a game and a half behind Virginia for first place (14-1). Maryland sports a 15-12 overall record this season with a decisive split between its success at home (10-3) compared to on the road (2-7). The Terps snapped a two-game skid last Tuesday when they took care of business versus Wake Forest, 71-60, their third straight home win, improving to 7-7 in the ACC. Maryland leads the all-time series with Syracuse, 5-2, although the sides havent met since 2008. With the Orange trailing by two points with 11 seconds remaining, C.J. Fair was called for a charge on what appeared to be a borderline call. It caused Boeheim to lose his temper, receive two technical fouls and get ejected from the game. Duke converted 3-of-4 at the line following the technicals to effectively put the game away. The squad struggled shooting in the hostile road environment, making less than 39 percent of it field goal tries, including just 2-of-9 from 3-point range. Jerami Grant posted team highs in points (17) and rebounds (eight), Fair finished with 12 points and Tyler Ennis was dreadful from the floor (2-of-13) but still had nine points, six assists and four steals. Syrracuses offense has been far from spectacular this season, as it shoots a modest 44. Jarvis Landry Jersey. 6 percent from the field for 69.2 ppg, but it has risen to elite status thanks to its excellent defense, which ranks seventh nationally in allowing only 58.6 ppg. It also lives comfortably in terms of its rebounding (+4.0) and turnover (+4.9) margins, with the latter ranking eighth-best in the country. Fair pours in a team-high 16.4 ppg and grabs 6.0 rpg. Trevor Cooney (13.0 ppg) does the majority of his damage from 3-point range, knocking down 77 long-range buckets at a 41.4 percent clip. Grant (12.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg) is another staple in the frontcourt, and Ennis (11.7 ppg, 5.7 apg) has made a name for himself as a clutch playmaker as a freshman. The Terps carried a five-point lead into intermission of their most recent game and extended their advantage to as many as 16 down the stretch en route to the easy victory over Wake Forest. Although they were outshot from the field on the evening, 47.1 percent to 42.6 percent, they outscored the Deacons from 3-point range, 24-9, and scored 18 points off of 18 Wake turnovers. Nick Faust was the spark plug off the bench with 20 points, while Charles Mitchell and Jake Layman scored 12 and 11 points, respectively, and Seth Allen and Evan Smotrycz netted 10 points apiece. Maryland has been able to successfully outpace its opponents this season, as it shoots 43.9 percent from the field for 71.8 ppg, while allowing 68.5 ppg on just 42.4 percent shooting. One of its biggest strengths comes on the glass with a +3.9 rebounding margin, but it is oftentimes held back by a lackluster free-throw percentage (.663). Dez Wells is the go-to scoring option with 14.8 ppg on greater than 48 percent field-goal shooting. Layman (12.1 ppg), Allen (12.0 ppg), Smotrycz (11.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg) and Faust (10.1 ppg) round out the balanced attack and all four player have drained at least 33 3-pointers. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

LOS ANGELES -- Jason Collins of the Brooklyn Nets says he has received a text message from Billie Jean King and other messages of support since becoming the first openly gay athlete to play in one of the United States four major professional leagues. Lael Collins Jersey . Collins says the text from the former tennis great was "very meaningful and very much appreciated." Collins spoke before the Nets practised at UCLA on Tuesday. They resume their road trip with a game at Portland on Wednesday night. Collins signed a 10-day contract on Sunday and played 10 scoreless minutes in a victory against the Los Angeles Lakers. He revealed at the end of last season that he is gay, but was a free agent and had remained unsigned until the Nets needed another big man. Larry Allen Jersey Tyron Smith Jersey . Can it be repeated? The Roughriders are fairly well positioned heading into the off-season. Yes, they have some big ticket free agents to deal with but ones they should be able to retain.OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Lakers caught the Thunder by surprise on Sunday. Los Angeles had no such luck in the rematch. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant scored 29 points apiece, and Oklahoma City avenged Sundays surprising loss to the Lakers by rolling past them 131-102 Thursday night. Lakers guard Jodie Meeks, who scored a career-high 42 points on Sunday, was held to 19 on 6-for-15 shooting. Westbrook said the Thunder didnt pay extra attention to Meeks. "We just did what we did," Westbrook said. "He just happened to get lucky the first time. We aint worried about what Jodie Meeks does. Were just worried about playing Thunder defence." Westbrook shot poorly against Lakers on Sunday, but he made 9 of 17 shots and had nine assists in 23 minutes in the rematch. Hes become more focused on passing and has been more efficient since his return from knee surgery. "Its real fun, especially when we win," he said. "As long as we continue to do a good job of playing together and everybody gets in a good groove, I think well be all right." Serge Ibaka added 15 points, 13 rebounds and a season-high seven blocks for the Thunder, who won their second straight and climbed within half a game of San Antonio for the top record in the Western Conference. "We knew they were going to be ready, especially here at home," Lakers centre Pau Gasol said. "Theyre playing for trying to get the best record in the league, were not. Theyre situation is just a tiny bit different than ours. " Kent Bazemore scored 16 points and Gasol added 14 for the Lakers. Los Angeles allowed at least 131 points for the fourth time in five games. "I didnt think we were focused coming out like we were Sunday, and you cant do that against this team," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "We cant lose them in transition two or three times. Theyre a good offensive team, so if you give them extra points, then you are going to get beat." The Lakers trimmed an 18-point deficit to 11 in the second quarteer before Westbrook returned from a brief rest to ignite a 13-1 run that gave the Thunder a 52-29 lead. Travis Frederick Cowboys Jersey. Oklahoma City led 60-46 at halftime. Westbrook had 14 points and six assists in 15 minutes and Durant had 13 points. The Thunder outrebounded the Lakers 33-16 in the first half and held them to 37 per cent shooting. Durant, who rarely gets into foul trouble, picked up his fourth with 10:16 left in the third quarter. Ryan Kelly hit a 3-pointer with 7:30 left in the period to cut Oklahoma Citys lead to 69-58, causing the Thunder to call a timeout. Oklahoma Citys Caron Butler hit a 3-pointer right out of the short break and Ibaka followed with a midrange jumper to boost the advantage to 16 points. Westbrook drained a 3-pointer to push Oklahoma Citys lead to 23 midway through the quarter, and Westbrook wore a broad smile as the Lakers called timeout. By the time Durant re-entered the game, Oklahoma City led 90-68. "When the game was kind of getting out of whack, I just felt like it was the right time to pass the ball, rebound or score, or whatever it took to get us over the hump and keep us rolling," Westbrook said. In the final seconds of the third quarter, Ibaka swatted a shot by Xavier Henry and the Thunder rebounded. Butler hit a 3-pointer in the final second of the period to push Oklahoma Citys lead to 101-77. "I think its hard to play the same team twice back-to-back so that was a little difficult, but it is what it is," Gasol said. "We cant make any excuses and we have to deal with it." NOTES: Thunder G Andre Roberson, who has spent much of the season in the D-League, got his fifth start. ... Westbrook scored nine points in the first four minutes, including a dunk to start the game. ... The Thunder shot 57 per cent in the first quarter and led 33-19 at the end of the period. The Lakers shot just 31 per cent in the first 12 minutes. ... Butler had 11 points and six rebounds on his 34th birthday. ...

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Penn State won a thrilling season opener with a 36-yard field goal as time expired to defeat the University of Central Florida 26-24 in front of a raucous 55,000-strong crowd in Ireland. Cheap Jermaine Gresham Jersey . Behind second-half replacement quarterback Justin Holman, the Knights appeared to have scored their own unlikely come-from-behind victory when Holmans 6-yard touchdown run with 1:13 left put UCF up 24-23. But Christian Hackenberg -- capping a 32-for-47, 454-yard performance -- coolly directed a seven-play drive to set up Sam Fickens fourth successful field goal as Penn State players stormed the field in joy. Hackenberg ran 8 yards for a first down on a 4th-down play in Penn States own half of the field during the final drive. Saturdays win was the first for new Penn State coach James Franklin, who declared his pride in a team that wasnt rattled by the Knights go-ahead TD. "There was only a minute or so left in the game, and I looked across the sideline and there wasnt doubt in anybodys eye. Everybody believed. They believed in Hack. They believed in Ficken," said Franklin, who bear-hugged and lifted up his kicker moments after victory. Penn State players received the Dan Rooney Trophy, a football made of ancient Irish bog wood that was specially commissioned for the game. Cannons blasted blue-and-white streamers and confetti into the air at Dublins Croke Park, a stadium that normally hosts Gaelic football matches, not American football games. Both teams agreed to play a game in Dublin for their own reasons. Penn State was seeking an overseas trip and a bowl-like experience for a squad that is barred by NCAA sanctions from post-season contention until 2016, while UCF -- just months before its breakthrough 12-1 season and Top 10 finish in national rankings -- was seeking an international showcase. Hackenberg spoiled a stunning performance by Holman, who came on for the second drive of the second half after coach George OLeary benched the ineffective Pete DiNovo. The redshirt freshman had been 3 of 8 for just 18 yards and gave up a drive-killing sack on his final play. OLeary praised both Holman and Hackenberg, describing the Penn State QB as a player that "everybody in the country would like to have." He expressed bewilderment at DiNovos poor play. "I said at halftime that hes not moving the chains, I didnt like the way he was handling things out there. He just seemed to be all over the place," OLeary said of DiNovo. He said the UCF receivers were consistently open in both halves, but DiNovo too often misfired or hesitated. "Justin, give him credit," he said of the replacement quarterback. "He went out there and made the throws. He was the spark plug in the second half offensively." Penn State ended the first half up 10-3, but should have been ahead by more as UCF struggled to move the ball at all. Both teams looked jet-lagged in what was the first overseas game in either schools history. The Nittany Lions opening drive was extended by a roughing-the-kicker penalty, then Hackenberg dropped a 44-yard pass between two defenders to receiver DaeSean Hamilton, who set a Penn State receiving record for freshmen with 11 catches for 165 yards. Zach Zwinak finally punched the ball in from the 1-yard line on his third attempt to put Penn State up 7-0. A 68-yard kickoff return by Jordan Akins gave UCF the ball on Penn States 23, but OLeary gambled and lost with a 4th down decision to go for it on PSUs 1-yard line. DiNovos rollout straight into a pass rush ended with a throwaway. UCF cornerback Jacoby Glenn made a diving interception on Hackenbergs next possession, but the Knights could manage only a 36-yard Shawn Moffitt field goal to make the score 10-3. The game tempo accelerated as soon as Holman entered the game. He ran for two touchdowns, the first a one-yard plunge to pull UCF within 13-10 with 2:39 left in the third quarter. And he threw for a third, a 10-yard bullet to Josh Reese with 11:31 left that narrowed Penn States lead to 20-17. Between those two UCF scores, Hattenberg pulled off the longest play of the game. On 3rd and 17 deep in his own half, he lobbed a bomb to Geno Lewis, who had gotten behind three defenders and ran untouched for a 79-yard TD. The start of the fourth quarter featured a rat-a-tat three turnovers in 52 seconds. Hackenberg, rolling right and under pressure from defensive tackle Demetris Anderson, saw his pass picked off on the UCF 39-yard line by cornerback Jordan Ozerities. On the very next play Holman suffered his only miscue, failing to keep hold of the ball during a play-action move. Defensive tackle Anthony Zettel recovered. Two plays later, Chris Godwin took a bubble-screen pass and got hit hard by two defenders, particularly Glenn, whose low-shoulder tackle popped the ball loose again. Strong safety Clayton Geathers recovered. UCFs defence forced Penn State to settle for a third field goal with 3:30 left to make it 23-17. Then Holman, who finished 9 of 14 for 204 yards, marched his team down the field -- straight into a 4th down-and-10 crisis on the Penn State 37. As the heavily pro-Penn State crowd roared, Holman fired a long ball down the left sideline that looked overthrown. But Reese leaped backward and caught the ball with both hands as he fell on his back at the 6. Holman scored on the ground the next play, leaving too much time on the clock for Hackenberg. "Hes what a college quarterback should look like," OLeary said of Hackenberg. "He delivered the ball on time and with great efficiency. We shouldve had our hands on him more, but he was the difference in the game." Robert Nkemdiche Jersey . The journeyman goaltender can only go by what hes told. "Probably the main reason why I havent gotten a game while Ive been up is because I dont have NHL experience," MacIntyre said. Calais Campbell Jersey .C. -- Mallory Blackwelder won the Symetra Classic on Saturday for her first Symetra Tour title, closing with a 5-under 67 for a two-stroke victory.SOCHI, Russia - The IOC says a Latvian hockey player has been expelled from the Sochi Olympics after failing a doping test. The International Olympic Committee says Vitalijs Pavlovs tested positive for the stimulant methylhexaneamine after Latvias loss to Canada in the quarterfinals. He is the fourth athlete to fail a drug test at the games. Tyrann Mathieu Jersey. Earlier Saturday, the Ukrainian Olympic Committee said cross-country skier Marina Lisogor tested positive for the stimulant trimetazidine.

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is a much bigger fan of video replay than his San Francisco counterpart Bruce Bochy - at least for one night.Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey . Gerardo Parra snapped a tie with a home run in the seventh -- his first hit since been acquired by the Brewers -- and Milwaukee recorded the final out of its 4-3 victory Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants when a replay review overturned a safe call at first base. With two outs in the ninth, Brewers closer Frankie Rodriguez walked Hunter Pence. Joe Panik then bounced to second baseman Rickie Weeks, who was shielded on the play by Pence before making the throw to first. Brewers Roenicke challenged the safe call by first base umpire Hal Gibson, which was overturned after a review of about 3 minutes, 17 seconds. "I thought he was definitely out but with replay, you cant see everything clearly, you dont make the call," Roenicke said. "They got the call right; he was out." Bochy saw the same play, but obviously had a different opinion of the overturned call. "I didnt think they were going to overturn it," Bochy said. "I just dont see how it got overturned. It was so close. You always hear the word conclusive. But they did, and that is the game." The victory preserved the Brewers one-game lead in the NL Central Division over St. Louis, which rallied past Boston 3-2. Pittsburgh fell 2 1-2 games back after losing to Miami, 6-3. Parra, acquired at the trade deadline from Arizona, homered with two outs off reliever Jean Machi (6-1). He also made a sensational sliding catch in the eighth inning in foul territory on Brandon Crawfords opposite-field slicing fly ball with runners on first and second for the second out. "It was certainly important on both ends," Roenicke said. "The defence, we know, hes a gold-glover, what kind of arm he has. We know he has range out there. Hes shown he has a good feel for where he is in the field." Rookie Jimmy Nelson (2-2) allowed three runs on six hits in seven innings for Milwaukee. Rodriguez pitched the ninth for his 33rd save. The Giants erased a 3-0 deficit on Pablo Sandovals three-run homer off Nelson in the sixth. "Pablo really delivered for us," Bochy said. "Youd like to win a game when you make a nice comeback like that. We are in August, they are not do-or-die games but they are really, really important." Carlos Gomez staked the Brewers to a 2-0 lead in the third with his 16th home run off Tim Lincecum. Gomez also drove in the Brewers third run in the fifth on a perfect squeeze bunt after Weeks advanced to third on a two-out wild pitch. "Thats an outstanding play," Roenicke said. "Thats a guy looking at the game, at what needs to be done and knew that one run was more important than him maybe driving a ball into the gap. "It was great timing and great execution." DOUBLE DUTY Milwaukees Jonathan Lucroy doubled twice to give him 37 on the season, second in the NL to Arizonas Paul Goldschmidt, who has 39, but is out for the remainder of the season with a broken left hand. SCORED UPON (FINALLY) Parras home run off Machi snapped a streak of 23 1-3 consecutive scoreless innings by the Giants bullpen. HOT-HITTING NELSON Nelsons third-inning single was his second hit in his last three at-bats, which followed 66 hitless at-bats as a professional, 59 in the minors and his first seven with the Brewers. UPON FURTHER REVIEW Brewers shortstop Jean Segura made a sensational play behind second, spinning to throw out Pence at first to apparently end the third inning. But, Giants manager Bruce Bochy challenged the call and it was overturned. TRAINERS ROOM Giants: Outfielder Angel Pagan, who was scheduled to play his second rehab game Tuesday night with Triple-A Fresno, could rejoin the Giants on Wednesday in Milwaukee. He has been on the DL with back issues. Brewers: Manager Ron Roenicke has yet to decide who will start in place of injured right-hander Matt Garza, on the 15-day DL with a strained oblique. Marco Estrada, moved to the bullpen after 18 starts, is a likely candidate. ON DECK Ryan Vogelsong (6-8, 3.74 ERA), who allowed just one run on two hits in nine innings in his last start after going 0-4 with a 4.55 ERA in July, faces Yovani Gallardo (6-5, 3.38 ERA). The Brewers; right-hander has a string of 16 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings. Womens Mike Alstott Jersey . He didnt need a whole lot of experience to know what was coming this time.Doug Martin Buccaneers Jersey . Two weeks after the Kings became NHL royalty for a second time; sitting on top of the hockey world, Stanley Cup in hands.(SportsNetwork.com) - A funny thing happened on the way to the latest incarnation of the storied Tom Brady-Peyton Manning rivalry, Andrew Luck decided to crash the party. The heir apparent to the NFLs elite quarterback club will lead his upstart Indianapolis Colts into Foxborough on Sunday to face off against football royalty -- Brady, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots -- in the AFC Championship Game. The Luck-led Colts will be trying to avenge a Week 11 42-20 thumping at the hands of the Pats in the Jonas Gray game, where the little-used former Notre Dame star broke onto the national scene, rushing for 202 of New Englands 246 rushing yards. The contest will also mark the fifth time since 2003 that New England and Indy will be meeting in the postseason and the third time in which they will play in the AFC title game, a rivalry ignited by the Brady/Manning feud. The Pats and Colts split matchups for the AFC crown, after the 2003 (New England) and 2006 seasons (Indy), in which each winner moved on to capture the Super Bowl. Thats what you play for, Belichick said. You play to win your division, you play to be in the postseason and then you play to be in the AFC Championship Game and then you see what happens after that. Thats what its all about. That what you work all year for, its to get to this point. In last years divisional round, Luck got his first chance against Belichick and Brady and it was much like the Week 11 game, a 43-22 Pats win as New England rushed for 234 yards and six touchdowns. Overall the Patriots have won each of their past five meetings with Indianapolis and are averaging 41.2 points per game in those contests. Luck has been at the controls for three of those affairs and the Colts have been routed each time, being outscored 144-66. New England advanced to its 11th AFC Championship Game -- and its ninth with Belichick and Brady at the helm -- with a 35-31 win over the Baltimore Ravens last Saturday when Brady threw for 367 three touchdown passes, the last of which was a go-ahead 23-yard strike to Brandon LaFell with 5:13 remaining. Bradys yardage total and 33 completions in 50 attempts each shattered his own franchise records for a playoff game, while the three-time Super Bowl champs connection with LaFell gave him 46 career postseason touchdown passes to break the leagues all-time record held by Bradys boyhood idol, Joe Montana. He also ran for a touchdown. Hes a pretty good quarterback, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs admitted when talking about Brady. He sat in there and made the plays they needed him to make. Belichick, meanwhile, moved into a tie with Hall of Fame mentor Tom Landry for the most postseason wins by a head coach with 20. Rob Gronkowski caught one of Bradys touchdown throws in a 7-reception, 108- yard effort. Danny Amendola finished with a pair of touchdown grabs for New England, including a 51-yard catch from wide receiver Julian Edelman on a trick play in the third quarter, the longest in postseason history by a non- quarterback. Thankfully well be playing next week, Belichick said. Its great to have Tom (Brady) and his ability and his poise and presence as our quarterback. Obviously hes done a tremendous job throughout the years. Theres no quarterback Id rather have than Tom Brady. Luck, meanwhile, led the Colts to a 24-13 win at Denver last Sunday and has now won three of his past four postseason starts. He threw for 265 yards and two touchdown passes against the Broncos and now has 1,703 passing yards in the postseason, the most by any player in his first five career playoff games, surpassing the previous mark set by Kurt Warner (1,644). Were playing good team ball, said Luck, who has guided Indianapolis to the postseason in each of his first three NFL seasons. Were feeding off each other. Im so proud to be a part of it. Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, is supposed to be good, though. The Colts defense was the big surprise, limiting the high-powered Broncos to 288 total yards, including just 200 net passing yards. During the regular season, Denver averaged 402.9 total yards per game and 291.3 passing yards. The defense did a heck of a job and its fun watching them making plays, said Luck. I know we feed off their energy and Id like to think they feed off of us and special teams. It was truly three phases working together, but, what a great job we did defensively. The Colts will be appearing in their fourth AFC Championship Game since 2003 and won the past two with Manning at the controls. The club knows winning in Foxborough wont be easy, however. The Patriots are a great, great team, said Indianapolis head coach Chuck Pagano. Hall of Fame coach. Hall of Fame quarterback. We all know how hard it is to win there. We know it will be a tall order but its going to be a great opportunity for our guys. Well continue to embrace this opportunity and prepare accordingly. New England leads its all-time series with the Colts by a significant 49-29 margin, including a 3-1 mark in postseason. WHAT TO WATCH FOR The Patriots are as playoff-tested as it gets. Brady will be making his NFL record ninth conference championship appearance and Belichick is on the verge of surpassing Landry for the most postseason triumphs. A victory over Indy here would be New Englands eighth Super Bowl berth, matching Pittsburgh and Dallas for the most ever. Were very fortunate to be in this position to have a chance to play in (the title game), Brady said. I think more than anything, youre just excited for the opportunity to be able to do it. Its hard to do and our team found a way to get there this year so hopefully we can take advantage of the opportunity. The Indy offense is obviously the teams strength and finished third in the NFL with 406.6 ypg but was No. Jameis Winston Jersey. 1 overall in passing with 305.9 of those yards coming through the air thanks to Luck, who is just the eighth QB in NFL history to toss 40 TDs in a season. The Stanford product has 12,957 passing yards since entering the league in 2012, the most of any player in their first three seasons. In the playoffs, Luck is the first player in NFL history to pass for 250-or-more yards in each of his first five postseason games. Luck has a plethora of weapons starting with the speedy T.Y. Hilton, who amassed a career-high 1,345 receiving yards with 1,159 of them coming after the first month. He also excels in the playoffs as Hilton has 568 career receiving yards in five postseason contests. Meanwhile tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener each had eight TD receptions in the regular season. The Pats are expected to try to slow down Hilton by shadowing him with All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, who is itching for a bounce back game after a rare down performance against the Ravens. You never know what Belichick is thinking, though, and the innovative mentor could use Revis to completely shut down veteran Reggie Wayne or Hakeem Nicks and use bracket coverage to stunt Hilton. Belichicks plans have worked well in the past against Luck, who has completed just 53.8 percent of his passes and amassed a dismal 67.7 passer rating in his previous three games against New England. Id like to think I am a better quarterback and would like to think were a better team, Luck said when asked about his prior difficulties against the Pats.We are well equipped to handle the unknown, the unforeseen. Belichick rarely rests on his past laurels, however, aware with the notion that what worked yesterday will not necessarily be sufficient for everything that is thrown at you tomorrow. If (Luck) extends the play, then he has the ability to create big plays, Belichick said. Weve seen him do that multiple times throughout his career already. Its another guy you have to defend in the running game, the passing game in terms of his ability to scramble and make first-down yardage on possession-type downs. And he makes good decisions, so all those things are a problem. What Luck doesnt have, though, is a consistent running game and the disappointing Trent Richardson has been benched in favor of the nondescript Daniel Herron, who has been an upgrade at least. Herron isnt going to remind you of Edgerrin James, though. He rushed 23 times for 63 yards and a TD against Denver, along with a team-high eight receptions for an additional 32 yards, In two playoff games, he is averaging 118 yards from scrimmage per game. They run the ball, they stay out of long-yardage, they get better production out of the running game, more play-action, those kind of things, Belichick said. The Colts defense has lacked consistency this season, especially on the pass rush where the club has missed Robert Mathis, who sat the entire campaign, first on a suspension and then with an Achilles injury. The group has picked things up in the playoffs, however. Veteran linebacker DQwell Jackson is the leader of the unit in his first season since coming over from Cleveland, pacing the AFC with 140 total tackles. The defensive backfield is highlighted by Vontae Davis, one of footballs best man-to-man coverage corners as well as veteran safety Mike Adams, who led the team with a career-high five INTs this season. Stopping the run has to be in the forefront of Paganos mind because the last two times he has faced the Pats, theyve averaged 240 yards per game on the ground with LeGarrette Blount and Gray taking turns as the torturer. Last weekend Brandon Bolden started for New England at running back and the team didnt have one rushing attempt in the second half so you never know what Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels are going to dial up. What happened in the regular season is what happened and were a much better team for that, Indianapolis defensive lineman Cory Redding said. So we learned from those mistakes and were moving on. On the injury front, the Colts are hurting in the defensive backfield as Davis is dealing with a knee injury and fellow corner Greg Toler has a groin issue. For New England, starting center Bryan Stork is iffy with a knee injury. OVERALL ANALYSIS There is a reason that Belichick is the best coach in professional football and everyone else is fighting for second place best evidenced by the wrinkle he unveiled on the Pats second drive of the third quarter against the Ravens after Stork was forced to leave with the knee injury. New England kicked Ryan Wendell inside to the pivot and lined up just four natural offensive linemen, declaring a normally eligible receiver like blocking tight end Michael Hoomanawanui or running back Shane Vereen as ineligible, all in an effort to keep Baltimore off balance. The strategy worked as Baltimore defenders were often confused when trying to substitute and match up, causing John Harbaugh to blow his stack and draw an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Belichick is the Nolan Ryan of football, a pure power pitcher who has developed impeccable control over the years and is able to pull the string on you at any time, leaving you in the batters box unable to react. One week its Brady throwing for 300 and the next its Blount or Gray or Bolden killing you on the ground. Defensively, he uses Revis to lock down one side of the field but you never know which receiver he wants to shadow and New England remains the one NFL team most likely to use multiple fronts from one week to the next. This is likely going to be Lucks league in two or three years but to win in this spot at this stage of his development is asking a little too much.

Just under a month ago, 32 teams started out on a path to join the elite club of World Cup Champions. Cheap Stefon Diggs Jersey . Two teams remain in pursuit of that goal, but both nations – Germany and Argentina – have multiple titles to their credit. Germany reached the Final with the most unpredictable of performances, piling goal after goal on a stunned Brazilian team en route to a 7-1 thrashing. The Argentinian team, meanwhile, snuck by a powerful Dutch side by the slimmest of margins: waiting out 120 minutes of cautious, scoreless play and settling things in penalty kicks. So, with the Final looming on the horizon, which nation do you like to capture its first title in over two decades? Germany started their campaign in Brazil with authority, drubbing Portugal 4-0 in their group stage opening and providing the margin of victory that would inevitably send Cristiano Ronaldo and his compatriots home before the knockout stage. A 2-2 draw to Ghana would provide the only blemish on Germanys record thus far but the team would clinch the top of Group G by edging out former coach and World Cup hero Jurgen Klinsmann and his American side 1-0 in their opening round finale. The Algerians would give Germany a scare in the round of 16, forcing extra time before Andre Schurrle and Mesut Ozil put away what would stand as a 2-1 victory. They would then ride an early header from defender Mats Hummels past a high-scoring French side in the quarters to set up their drubbing of the host Brazilians in the semis. Along the way the Germans have seen one man write his name in the annals of World Cup history and another serve notice that he may be next in line. Miroslav Kloses mark in the semifinal thrashing put him in sole possession of the all-time World Cup goal scoring record, one ahead of Brazilian great Ronaldo with 16. Not to be outdone, however, is 24-year-old Bayern Munich striker Thomas Müller. After earning a share of the Golden Boot in South Africa with five goals, Müller has piled on another five and enters the Final one shy of an unprecedented second straight. Argentinas performance has been a study in doing just enough to win. Though they have won all six of their contests in Brazil, they have done so by just a single goal in each match. The team emerged from a group devoid of titanic opposition, edging out Bosnia and Herzegovina in part thanks to a third-minute own-goal and Iran thanks to an unforgettable Lionel Messi free kick in second half stoppage-time. With the group hanging in the balance, the Argentines went back and forth with Nigeria in the opening round finale, eventually outlasting their African opposition in a 3-2 victory. In the knockout round, however, the Argentinians have used lone goals to get past highly-ranked European opposition. Switzerland – the top seed in Group E entering the tournament – held them scoreless through nearly two hours before Angel di Maria broke through in the 188th minute. Against Belgium it was the opposite, with Gonzalo Higuain finding the back of the net eight minutes in to provide the matchs lone goal. The question begs whether the team can find the firepower to match the German machine. Messi enters the Final tied for third in the competition with four goals and all eyes will be on the Little Magician to see if he can step up and add to his “Best Player in the World” argument when it matters most for his country. A double-sided historical note to help you make up your mind: Germany has lost just once to Argentina at the World Cup and has ended Argentinas tournament at each of the last two. However, Germanys one loss came in the 1986 Final, the last time the nation was crowned World Champions. So, who do you like? Will the balanced German attack find its way through the Argentine defence to earn a first World title as a unified nation? Or, will Messi heed Diego Maradonas claims as the future of Argentinian football and continue the trend of European World Cup futility in the Americas? As always, its Your! Call. Womens Linval Joseph Jersey .That sight softened the blow of what ended up as a 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.Knowing their teammate was fine after a scary headfirst fall in the opening minute of the game helped calm the Maple Leafs. Womens Cris Carter Jersey . Both sides are having domestic troubles going into their meeting in Tuesdays Champions League round of 16 first-leg match, but it is arguably Barcelona which has more to prove. Saturdays 3-2 loss at Osasuna, coupled with Real Madrids 4-2 win over Levante on Sunday, left the defending Spanish champion 10 points behind its bitter rival, which has dropped only eight points all season.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Though not the gambling type, Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone cant avoid being reminded how often his team is the underdog.Informed the Bills are not favoured in their home game against the Kansas City Chiefs in a meeting of two 5-3 teams, Marrone smiled and said: And (the line) is moving. Its going up, right?Indeed it was. After opening the week 1-point favourites, the Chiefs were at 2 by Thursday.Marrones not surprised after the Bills werent favoured entering their 43-23 win against the then-1-6 New York Jets two weeks ago.Encouraging as the Bills record has been, they have a long history of second-half collapses during a 14-season playoff drought. Thats a history they need to overcome before anyone begins taking them seriously.Its going to be that way until we prove that we can go out and win on a consistent basis. And we havent, Marrone said. So I dont get upset with anyone. Do you need it as motivation? I think these guys go out there every day and understand what we have to prove.The game Sunday becomes the latest prove-it or lose-it test for a Bills team that comes out of its bye week. The Bills have won two straight, and displayed resilience in winning three games on their final offensive possession.Theyll face the Chiefs, who are on a roll of their own. Kansas City has won three straight and five of six to climb into a jumbled AFC playoff picture featuring 11 teams with winning records.I dont get caught up in all that, Chiefs coach Andy Reid, referring to the standings. I dont think it does any good. It doesnt help you win the game or that. Were both sitting 5-3, and thats what we are.The similarities dont end there. Both teams have aggressive defences the league leaders in sacks, and are stingy against the run. Their offences are run by veteran quarterbacks and rely on balanced approaches.Heres a number of things to look out for as the non-division rivals meet for a seventh straight season:BY THE SACKFUL: The Bills are second in the NFL with 28 sacks, and the Chiefs one behind with 27. That was enough for Marrone and Reid to exchange compliments.You could argue that this is one of the better defences, if not the best, in the National Football League at this point this season, Reeid said of the Bills. Cris Carter Jersey. Marrone made note of Chiefs linebackers Justin Houston, who leads the NFL with 12 sacks, and Tamba Hali, who has four, before turning his attention to defensive tackle Dontari Poe.I think the inside guy is having an unbelievable year, Marrone said of Poe, who has three sacks. Hes a guy thats flying under the radar in this league.RUN STOPPERS: The Chiefs have yet to allow a touchdown rushing this season, and face an injury-depleted Bills backfield missing C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) and Fred Jackson (groin). Backups Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown were limited to a combined 59 yards on 29 carries against the Jets.Chiefs starter Jamaal Charles, meanwhile, faces a defence that didnt allow a rushing TD until giving up three against the Jets. Buffalo has held six opponents under 90 yards rushing this season.AIR BALLS: Chiefs starter Alex Smith has thrown 11 touchdown passes, but none yet to a wide receiver. Not to worry, said receiver Dwayne Bowe, who has 31 catches for 398 yards.As long as Im contributing, then Im feeling good, Bowe said. Its going to come my way.AIRING IT OUT: Kyle Orton has provided a spark to the Bills passing attack in four games since replacing EJ Manuel as starter. With a 3-1 record, the 10-year journeyman is averaging 282 yards passing per outing, and has nine touchdowns versus three interceptions. In that time, the Bills passing numbers have jumped from being ranked 31st to 20th.Rookie receiver Sammy Watkins has been the big beneficiary. In four games with Manuel, Watkins had 17 catches for 197 yards and two TDs. In four with Orton, he has 21 catches for 393 yards and three TDs.SECOND-HALF COLLAPSES: This marks the fourth time since the Bills playoff drought began theyve had a winning record through eight games. None of those translated into winning seasons, including 2011, when Buffalo turned a 5-3 start into a 6-10 finish. Since 2005, the Bills have a combined 29-43 record in the first half of a season, and 25-47 in the second.Yeah, were in a good position record-wise, but we havent done anything yet, Bills centre Eric Wood said. You dont get any prizes for starting 5-3.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL 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 Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

The Canadian Rugby Foundation together with tru performance Nutrition is pleased to announce the truAthlete Fund developed in support of the National Senior Womens Rugby Program. Joe Staley Jersey . The truAthlete Fund has been formed to help National team players who have demonstrated through their commitment to training, skill development, competition, and promotion of rugby at the grassroots level that they fully embody the term "truAthlete". The Fund aims to reward the dedication exemplified by these "truAthletes" by filling any gaps in funding that the athletes may face throughout their international rugby careers. The Fund hopes to demonstrate to our athletes that their commitment to the sport and the National program has not gone unnoticed by the rugby community and sports fans alike. Bryan Marshall, of tru Performance Nutrition, is excited to have established the truAthlete Fund in support of the National team athletes. "Im very fortunate to work with elite athletes on a daily basis, and I am aware of the devotion and sacrifice it takes to reach the national team level. With the effort and work that these young women put into their training, lack of funding should not prevent any athlete from competing at an international level." Chairman of the Canadian Rugby Foundation, Mike Holmes, is fully supportive of the new fund and is committed to helping it grow: "The Canadian Rugby Foundation is pleased to support the new initiative to help with the costs that often hinder the development of deserving female rugby players. This is the first endowed fund designed to help with womens rugby and the Foundation is committed to match funds raised 1 dollar for every 4 dollars raised to make this endeavor successful." Megan Gibbs, a nine-year veteran of the Senior Program who understands the financial strain of competing at the international level, expressed her excitement for the Fund, "a Fund dedicated solely to the women is critical in the sustainable development of the game. The leaps and bounds weve made with the National womens sevens through the support of Rugby Canada and Own the Podium has been incredible.  But a Fund that could provide additional resources to our women and help mitigate further financial constraints is very encouraging.  It is very exciting."  For more information visit the site http://www.truperformancenutrition.com/ to see how you can help support our National Senior Womens Team through the truAthlete Fund and the development of rugby across the country. Ahmad Brooks 49ers Jersey .C. -- Phil Mickelson spent five hours in the stifling heat Tuesday at Pinehurst No. Terrell Owens 49ers Jersey .Y. - The Toronto Marlies will have to wait to lock up their third-straight North Division title after falling 5-1 to the Utica Comets on Friday in American Hockey League action.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca! Hi Kerry, I have a question regarding the "in-person hearings." The public is only ever told that a player has been "offered an in-person hearing", and rarely is the actual process discussed. I was wondering, what actually happens during one of these hearings? How much dialogue is there between the player and the NHL officials? From an outsiders perspective, it seems like the league has its mind made up, but has to invite the player simply because they want to issue a suspension longer than 5 games. Any insight into these closed-door meetings would be interesting to hear! Thanks! Ryan SteevesOttawa, ON ----- Hi Kerry, Max Lapierre on Dan Boyle - Obviously, that garbage has no place in the NHL. The ensuing fights, hits (Brent Burns for instance) and the injury - clearly someone needs to put their foot down. My question is - did the officials on the ice handle that properly? How many games does he sit? Sadly, Im not sure if Brendan Shanahan will give a stiff enough penalty to Lapierre and it could allow dirty players to continue doing this with a fair trade-off in their minds. That being said - my last question: Has the NHL ever asked you to head up the Department of Player Safety and would you (though I would be sad to see it since this column would have to go away)? Always hated it when you were the ref since you actually called the rules by the book and actually did a good job! I would love to see you in that position - I feel a former referee plus players advising is more appropriate way to structure that department. Cheers (and thanks for always doing a great job as a Ref), Zach Karabat Ryan and Zach: Thank you for your questions. Zach, you can bet the farm that I wont be included as a member of the Player Safety Committee let alone heading the department so have no fear, youll be able to keep reading Cmon Ref! Likewise, Ryan it would be totally inappropriate for me to speculate on what takes place through the discipline process that Brandan Shanahans office is responsible for; either through a telephone interview with the player or by invitation of an in-person hearing.  What I can share with you however is a firsthand account of player hearings that I was required to attend. The format of player hearings changed a number of years ago when Brian Burke became the Vice President of Hockey Operations. Burkie was not only a lawyer but as a former General Manager and good hockey man determined that hearings could often be conducted by telephone for convenience/cost without the physical presence of the player or the Referee who called the penalty. When I began my NHL officiating career Clarence Campbell was the league president. Mr. Campbell was a Rhodes Scholar and a lawyer similarly to all his successors that have held the position, including current Commissioner Gary Bettman. Mr. Campbell was also part of the Canadian Army prosecution team at the Nuremburg trial of Nazi war criminals. The reason I mention this is because Mr. Campbell was a stickler for detailed report writing. He and his designee, Vice President Brian ONeill (responsible for supplementary discipline) insisted on the Officials writing independent detailed reports when game misconducts and match penalties were assessed in the event a player hearing was required. The Referee was always compelled to attend the hearing to provide evidence and be questioned on his report. Garrett Celek Jersey. The hearing was the players "day in court" and he and often appeared with his team General Manager. They were able to plead their case and speak on the charges levied against him. Unlike today, some games might not have been televised and no footage was available of the incident so the Referees report became a very important component in the proceedings. In most hearings the player attempted to diminish what had taken place and lay blame to his opponent or even the Referee. I have also seen situations where the player showed true remorse and appealed to the goodness and mercy of the court. I want to share the bizarre details of one hearing I attended just to give you a glimpse of how creative a players line defence can be. On March 23, 1983, I assessed a match penalty to Dave "Tiger" Williams of the Vancouver Canucks for breaking his stick on the back of Washington Cap defenceman Randy Holts head. Tiger used the fact that the game was not televised to his advantage in the emergency hearing that was called by Brian ONeill. It was the best defense I ever heard in a hearing. Going into the game in the Cap Center Randy Holt, trailed Tiger by a couple of penalty minutes for the league lead in that department. Patrik Sundstrom, a skilled rookie, bumped into Holt in the corner by accident. The Caps tough guy threw down his gloves and started pummeling the Swede. I was close by and witnessed Tiger charging from the blue line with his stick held in a cross-check position straight for Holt who was facing the end boards and doing a number of Sunny. I stepped in front of Williams and like a crossing guard held my hand out signaling - Stop! There was stopping Tiger and I stepped aside as Williams shattered his stick shaft on the back of Randy Holts helmetless head! The next day at the hearing in the Toronto office, Brian ONeill read my report (no video remember) and asked Tiger if he had anything if he had anything to say in his defence. For the next 15 minutes, Tiger talked about hunting grizzly bears with a bow and arrow and turning them into rugs. The essence of his defence was that he only got one shot at a charging grizz and had to make it a kill shot; thats why he only uses "aluminum arrows" - kills em dead! For that very reason its why Tiger said he used a "wooden" hockey stick because they break real easy unlike aluminum. If he had hit Holt with even the slightest force using an aluminum stick he wouldnt have gotten up! Tiger then used me as his defence witness by referring to my report which said Holt did not fall down after being struck my Williams stick. We walked out of that hearing and I said, "Tiger, thats the biggest load of horse---- I have ever seen shoveled at one time." With a big grin on his face he replied, "You know, I think he went for it. I couldnt believe Holt didnt go down, because I really hammered him." The only punishment Tiger Williams drew was an automatic two-game suspension that came with accumulating game misconducts. Tiger was a character as well as a big-game hunter. The Referees assessed the correct penalty to Maxim Lapierre (major for check from behind and game misconduct) and the players fate is now in the hands of the Player Safety Committee. I know one thing for sure - Maxim Lapierre, Brent Burns and all the other players leveling dangerous hits on their opponents arent hunting grizzlies! This recklessness has to stop...

SEATTLE -- Jacoby Ellsbury provided the jolt New Yorks sluggish offence needed, even if the Yankees still are struggling to score runs. Jake Matthews Jersey . Ellsbury lined an RBI single on a 0-2 pitch to score Derek Jeter with the go ahead run in the eighth inning, and the Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Tuesday night. "This type of game is the type of win that has been eluding us," Ellsbury said. "Hopefully, if we can win these types of games well be in great shape. Its always nice to go out there and throw a bunch of runs up there and make it easy on the pitching staff, but yeah, you have very good hitters, its just a matter of time before it really starts clicking." Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 14 games -- the longest for a Yankees player since Jeters 19-game streak in 2012 -- and gave New York just its fourth win in the last 11 games. Ellsburys hit came after Jeters ground-rule double off Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Scoring the winning run capped a big night for Jeter, one that started with festivities. The Mariners honoured Jeter during a pregame ceremony in his final visit to the city where he made his major league debut in 1995. Jeter was given a seat from the old Kingdome and an engraved watch from former New York teammate Robinson Cano as part of his farewell tour gifts. Jeter then went out and had two hits and scored two runs. He also scored on Carlos Beltrans RBI double in the first. "Anytime you can start rallies those are big things," New York manager Joe Girardi said. "And you get yourself into scoring position with less than two outs, those are big things." Scoring runs has become a problem for the Yankees. They havent scored more than four runs since May 28 against St. Louis. While thats a small sample, its enough that Girardi was questioned before the game about his concern over the lack of offence. They didnt get a lot against Iwakuma (4-3), but the Yankees came through in key moments. Beltran had the first big hit with his opposite-field double to score Jeter. That was followed by Brian McCanns RBI infield single that handed starter Vidal Nuno a 2-0 lead before he took the mound. Then it was Ellsburys turn in the eighth, lining the two-strike pitch from Charlie Furbush for a single to take the lead. "I feel like my at-bats are better than April. I dont know where the numbers stand but I feel a little better up there," Ellsbury said. "But the big thing is we won tonight, not really extending a hit streak or anything like that. Nuno and the Yankees bullpen made sure what offence they received was enough. A rainout on Monday in Kansas City ruined a potential matchup between former teammates in Japan, Iwakuma and Masahiro Tanaka. Instead, Tanaka was pushed back to Wednesday. Nuno went 5 2/3 innings and was in line for the victory before Dellin Betances problems in the seventh. Nuno struck out two and allowed only Cole Gillespies RBI single to score Cano in the first. Nuno did escape trouble in the second and fourth innings when Seattle had runners in scoring position with two outs and were unable to get the runner home. Michael Saunders came inches from a three-run homer in the fourth, but his drive to the deepest point of Safeco Field was caught at the wall by Ellsbury. "He did what he had to do," Girardi said. "I thought he did pretty well. He got us to the sixth inning." Seattle pulled even at 2-2 in the seventh off Betances when Dustin Ackley singled just over the head of Brian Roberts to score Mike Zunino. "He throws so hard and is so long you just got to see it and hit it," Ackley said of facing Betances. "Luckily I was able to sneak it over the infield." But the Yankees responded immediately in the eighth and instead of blowing the lead, Betances (4-0) got credited with the victory. David Robertson pitched the ninth for his 15th save. Notes: Yankees RHP Shawn Kelley is expected to rejoin the club on Wednesday. Kelleys been out with a back strain. ... Seattle signed second-round pick OF Gareth Morgan on Tuesday. Morgan took part in batting practice with the team before the game. ... Seattle RHP Taijuan Walker (shoulder) was returned from his rehab assignment and optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.

The members say theyll need thick skin, plenty of time and the ability to leave their loyalties behind to pick the four teams that will play for college footballs national title next year. They say they are ready for the pressure. "I think Ive experienced plenty of heat in my life," former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said. Rice, former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne and College Football Hall of Fame quarterback Archie Manning are among the 13 people who will be part of the College Football Playoff selection committee in 2014. The committee was officially unveiled Wednesday. The College Football Playoff will replace the Bowl Championship Series. The selection committee will work similarly to the one that picks the teams for the NCAA basketball tournament, though instead of 68 teams it will choose and seed four to play in the semifinals. The winners of those games, played on a rotating basis at six bowl sites, will meet a week later for the national championship. "There will undoubtedly be people who disagree with the outcome," Rice said. Rice was a surprising pick to be part of the committee because she has never worked directly in college athletics, though when she was provost at Stanford the athletic department was under her supervision and she hired Tyrone Willingham as football coach. She called herself a "student of the game." "What I can hopefully bring to this committee is critical judgment and the willingness to work real hard ... to put the best four teams on the field," she said. Rice, who grew up in Alabama, said college football has been trying to come up with a way to crown a champion for years and mentioned how the 1966 championship was muddled when Notre Dame and Michigan State played to a tie. Notre Dame was voted champion by the coaches and AP polls, but Alabama went 11-0. "It enhances head-to-head competition," Rice said about the new system. She said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott approached her about being part of the committee. "Condi definitely earned her spot on this committee," said Bill Hancock, the executive director of the BCS. "Obviously, part of this is going to be the ability to make judgments under scrutiny, and Condi has that." Rice is the only woman on the committee. Some, such as former Auburn coach Pat Dye and former Georgia star and ESPPN analyst David Pollack, have said they would prefer only those who have played football to be on the committee. Jake Matthews Falcons Jersey. "Ive been in enough positions to respect people who have different views," Rice said. "I will work very hard reviewing film to make good judgments." She added: "I dont feel Im carrying the banner for anyone except those of us who love college football." The panel is made up of five current athletic directors, former players and coaches and college administrators, and a former member of the media. "Our work will be difficult, but rewarding at the same time," Arkansas athletic director and committee chairman Jeff Long said. "We have important judgments to make during that process. We realize we represent all of college football." The rest of the members are: --Barry Alvarez, athletic director, Wisconsin. --Lt. Gen. Mike Gould, former superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy. --Pat Haden, athletic director, Southern California. --Tom Jernstedt, former NCAA executive vice-president. --Oliver Luck, athletic director, West Virginia. --Dan Radakovich, athletic director, Clemson. --Steve Wieberg, former college football reporter, USA Today. --Willingham, former head coach of Notre Dame, Stanford and Washington. --Mike Tranghese, former commissioner of the Big East Conference. Hancock said term limits for committee members will eventually be three years, but that will not be the case for all the current members because they do not want to replace the entire committee at once. "We havent worked out the stagger yet," Hancock said. Committee members will recuse themselves when a team they have a direct relationship with comes up in meetings. "Its imperative for all committee members to check their loyalties and affiliations before entering the meeting room," Jernstedt said. Hancock said the committee members will be allowed to examine whatever data they believe is relevant. "No one single metric will be identified as paramount over all other data," Hancock said. Long said the committee likely will release four or five top 25 rankings during the season, starting around midseason, before the final decisions are made at the end of the regular season. "I know its going to have long hours involved," Alvarez said. "Obviously, criticism will be a part of it."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Womens Mike Evans Jersey .J. -- The New York Giants are not only back in the playoff hunt with a four-game winning streak, theyre calling the plays that get them those wins. Thats exactly what Jason Pierre-Paul did against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. With the Giants clinging to a 20-13 lead early in the fourth quarter and the Packers about to start a series at their 30, Pierre-Paul said in the huddle he was going to pick a pass and score. Pierre-Paul hadnt seen the Packers formation and he hadnt been listening to coach Mike McCarthy talk to Scott Tolzien on the sideline. He just knew, and he was right. Pierre-Paul scored on a spectacular, leaping 24-yard fourth-quarter interception return and the resurgent Giants won 27-13 over the slumping and injured-riddled Packers (5-5). "I have never seen anything like it before in my life," fellow defensive end Justin Tuck said. "We were literally in a TV timeout and he said, Im going to pick this." Tuck said Pierre-Paul made the call before the Giants had even called a defence. "If you look at my reaction to him picking it, I was in awe because he had just called it before it happened," Tuck said. "He called it before seeing the formation, so I dont know if it was Voodoo. I dont know." Pierre-Paul, questionable because of a shoulder injury against Oakland that limited him to one day of practice, said he had a feeling. "I knew I could deliver that play, that significant play, and I did," Pierre-Paul said. "It changed the game." Tolzien, starting his first NFL game, took the blame. "Thats on me giving their team a freebie," said Tolzien, who finished 24 of 34 for 339 yards and three interceptions. "We had a chance at that point. That kills ya. It was a game-changer. You see the arms up in the air and you cant throw it." Eli Manning threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Rueben Randle, and Brandon Jacobs added a 1-yard run as the Giants handed the Packers their third straight loss, their longest skid since a five-game losing streak near the end of 2008. "Its not good," Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said. " Its definitely new territory. Its tough, because you go 10-5, 10-6, 15-1. You lose three, it doesnt feel good. But right now were just not playing very good ball. Were 5-5 right now, so weve just got to move forward with the guys we have and play better." Two of the three losses have come with 2011 NFL MVP Rodgers sidelined with a broken left collarbone. The Giants are heading the other way. Their winning streak follows a 0-6 start and it improbably has moved them within 1 1/2 games of first-place Philadelphia (6-5) in the weak NFC East. They are a game behind second-place and idle Dallas (5-5), which will play here next Sunday. "Weve kept the dream alive and got to the game next week," centre Jim Cordle said. "But there is still a long way to go." The Packers, who got a 1-yard TD run by Eddie Lacy and two field goals by Mason Crosby, including a 57-yarder, fell a game behind Chicago and Detroit in the NFC North. The Giants never trailed, but they never put the Packers away until the interception by Pierre-Paul. New York had the better of the play in the first half, holding the ball for almost 20 minutes. The Giants jumped to a 10-0 lead on Mannings 26-yard touchdown pass to Randle and Josh Browns 40-yard field goal. The touchdown reception was Randles sixth in the last six games, and he set it up with a 32-yard punt return. Manning finished 25 of 35 for 279 yards and an interception. A 30-yard pass to Victor Cruz, who had eight catches for 110 yards, and a 5-yard run by Jacobs on a fourth-and-1 at the Packers 36 set up the field goal. Tolzien threw passes of 25 yards to Jordy Nelson and 45 to James Jones on consecutive plays to set up a 24-yard field goal by Crosby on the next series. Taking over at the Green Bay 37 with no timeouts, Tolzien hit on two passes, setting up Crosby for a 57-yard field goal on the final play. It was a yard shy of his Packers record and it was the longest against the Giants. NOTES: Brett Conway of Washington kicked a 55-yard against New York in 2001. ... Nelson finished with eight catches for 117 yards. ... Packers DT Johnny Jolly (groin) and CB James Nixon (knee) left the game with injuries. ... LB Jon Beason and S Antrel Rolle had the Giants other interceptions. ...Linebacker Brad Jones led the Packers with 13 tackles and a sack. ... CB Terrell Thomas, Beason and LB Jacquian Williams all had eight tackles for the Giants. ... Green Bay outgained New York 394-334, but the Giants had the ball 35:14. Womens Vernon Hargreaves III Jersey . Long-standing doubts have been cast over the legitimacy of the participants intentions. Many have surmised that both Jim and Jim were in on the melee and the whole episode was rehearsed. If thats the case, it did no favours for either party, as Rome in particular struggled to book guests in the wake of the incident. Neither party has ever admitted to staging the fight, and the sentiments were likely real. Buccaneers Jersey . "It feels great (to re-sign with Rochester)," Vitarelli said. "Ive had two great years so far and weve been very successful, so its great to be part of the team again.OTTAWA -- Atiba Hutchinson and Julian de Guzman will lead a Canadian team mixed with veterans and young players in two international friendlies this month.
