Jessy was named Man of the Final for his efforts as USA became the tenth host team to win a World Cricket League tournament title.USA elected to bat first but got off to a disastrous start, slipping to 5 for 3 inside five overs with both openers leg-before and Ravi Timbawala run out without scoring after sacrificing himself in a mix-up with Alex Amsterdam, who had scored a hundred against Jersey on Friday. Amsterdam delivered again, making 50 off 73 balls to steer USA out of the early hole before miscuing a drive to midwicket off Zeeshan Maqsoods left-arm spin to be sixth out with the score 103.USA then had their second mix-up of the day, as Timil Patel didnt respond to Timroy Allens call for a second run to third man. Timil gave himself up for 22 by leaving the crease with both men at the same end so the big-hitting Allen could stay in for a late surge.Allen wound up scoring 45 off 32 balls before he was caught at long-on off medium pacer Mohammad Nadeem to start the 44th over after adding 41 for the ninth wicket with Jessy, who had come into the line-up in place of the injured Danial Ahmed. Last man Prashanth Nair blocked from one end while Jessy continued playing shots, allowing a 27-run tenth-wicket stand to take USA into the final over and reach a defendable total before Nair was caught slogging to long-off with two balls left to play.Jessy took the new ball and struck in the fourth over, bowling Arun Poulose with a full-length delivery that beat the batsman for pace as he flicked across the line. USA had Oman three down in the 14th over and continued to create chances but poor fielding once again allowed an opponent to stay in the game as Swapnil Khadye was dropped twice during a 51-run fourth-wicket stand with Zeeshan Siddiqui that took Oman past 100.It took Timils legspin to break the partnership with Khadye held by Allen after top-edging a slog and two overs later Timil pinned Lalcheta on the back foot with a flipper to make it 115 for 5. The legspinner landed his biggest punch of the day in the 38th over when he coaxed the set Siddiqui into a charge down the wicket and had him stumped for 58 leave Oman needing 45 off the last 75 balls but with only four wickets in hand. Timils 3 for 38 gave him 14 wickets on the week, tied for the tournament lead with Denmarks Bashir Shah.Oman had held star batsman Jatinder Singh back to No. 8 but Timil and medium pacer Elmore Hutchinson choked the run rate over the next six overs and created two run-out chances.

Jessy then pinned down No. 11 Sufyaan Mehmood in the 49th over, conceding just one run from it to leave Oman needing 23 off the final over.

Jordan DeSilva made an unbeaten 52 after entering at No. 8 with Bermuda 137 for 6 and they eventually finished their 50 overs on 225 for 8.Jersey won the fifth place playoff, defeating Italy by 42 runs at Wong Cricket Field. Injuries had left Jerseys squad decimated, forcing 46-year-old team manager Tony Carylon out of retirement and into the starting XI having not played since 2011.

Detroit Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson hopes to build off his season debut. John Starks Jersey . His counterpart on Tuesday gets a chance to make amends after yet another disciplinary issue.Jackson posted 18 points and four assists in 23 minutes after missing the teams first 21 games with left knee tendinitis. That didnt prevent the Pistons from seeing their three-game winning streak snapped, as they were defeated 98-92 by the Orlando Magic in Detroit on Sunday.Jackson also committed three turnovers, missed a couple of layups and got beaten off the dribble a few times. Hell be in the starting lineup once again when Detroit plays the Chicago Bulls at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Tuesday night. Jackson averaged 23.5 points and 7.5 assists last season against the Bulls as the Pistons won the season series, 3-1.Its going to take some time to get acclimated with my teammates again, but (the knee) felt good, Jackson said. I just wished we came out with a win. I felt like I was behind others in game shape and little aspects like that. I think in defensive coverage and rotations, I was a little rusty, and then just finding guys a little bit quicker. But offensively, I felt pretty good.Jackson will be matched up against Rajon Rondo, who did not play in the Bulls 112-110 home loss to Portland on Monday night. Rondo was suspended for one game for conduct detrimental to the team, reportedly for a verbal altercation with assistant coach Jim Boylan.Rondo, who served his seventh suspension since 2012, apologized for his actions and coach Fred Hoiberg said there are no hard feelings.Rajon, as weve all said, has been great, Hoiberg told the Chicago Tribune. A great teammate. Ive enjoyed the relationship that weve developed, and ... its not going to change moving forward.Swingman Jimmy Butler said Rondo has been a positive influence since he was signed last offseason.These things happen; and, when things happen, you handle it the way youre supposed to handle it, Butler told the Tribune. I think we all love Rondo. I know I do. Hes been a great mentor to me; hes made me a much better basketball player.Butler, who scored 28 points against the Trail Blazers, averaged 27.5 points against Detroit last season. This is the first of four meetings between the Central Division rivals.The Bulls (11-9) need to tighten up their defense after a poor performance. They allowed Portland to shoot 48.4 percent, offsetting a 34-point outing by Dwyane Wade.Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy is concerned about his teams inconsistent defense, which he feels has led to a mediocre start. Detroit is sitting at .500 with an 11-11 record.If were going to be an every-other-night type team that brings a defensive effort every other night, then we are going to be up and down, Van Gundy said. We cant rely on going out and shooting 50 percent from 3-point range. We shot 37 percent (Sunday). That is certainly good enough. If we can keep doing that, we will be fine. But we didnt bring anything to the table defensively. Phil Jackson Jersey .500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Custom New York Knicks Jersey .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. .5 million, one-year contract on Friday. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training. The dismissal of three batsmen between the 30th and 33rd overs turned the course of the match and was a major cause of Sri Lankas three-wicket defeat to Australia in the first ODI according to Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews.Mathews himself had lost his wicket in that period, miscuing a James Faulkner ball to backward point, where he was brilliantly caught. His wicket was the second in a double-wicket maiden, and Mitchell Starc would soon strike to dismiss Dhananjaya de Silva as well. Having been 124 for 2, Sri Lanka slipped to 132 for 5, and the innings never really recovered.We were going pretty well at one point, Mathews said. But straight after Kusal Mendis got out, I got out, and then Dhananjaya got out. I thought that was a bit of a turning point. We needed a partnership with Dinesh Chandimal. Either me or Dhananjaya had to set it up for Thisara Perera and Milinda Siriwardana to go out there in the 43rd or 44th over and get those quick runs. It wasnt easy to get quick runs. The boundaries were 80 or 85 yards away. We needed to be scrappy, but unfortunately we were short 20 or 30 runs.The dry state of pitches has been a cause of mild controversy so far in this Australia tour, and the Khettarama surface for this match was criticised - both by Aaron Finch, who labeled it a poor pitch, but also by Mathews, who delivered a milder censure. Balls were seen to disturb the surface early in the match, and virtually every ball was raising dust by the finish. It was Australias seamers, who through a variety of slower balls, used the condditions better on this occasion. Walt Frazier Knicks Jersey. The pitch was a bit too dry I thought, Mathews said. It was hard work for the batters. It was stopping and gripping for the seamers slower ones, and it was turning square. With this kind of weather we knew it was going to turn, but it was a bit too dry. Its that type of wicket that Australias seamers will also come into play with their variations.Among those extracting dramatic turn from the surface was debutant left-arm spinner Amila Aponso, who spun several deliveries so sharply it wound up in the hands of Mathews at slip. He consistently threatened the outside edge of Australias right-handers, and finished with figures of 1 for 27 from his 10 overs. He was by a distance the most economical Sri Lanka bowler.I thought Amila bowled the best out of the lot, said Mathews, who used five slow bowlers in the match. Dilruwan Perera was steady, but the way Amila bowled was fantastic. This is actually the first time Im seeing him. He bowled extremely well and Im very pleased.Mathews said Aaron Finch, who hit seven fours and two sixes to make 56 from 46 balls, had set up the chase for Australia.He got a lot of runs against the new ball, and that would have been his plan, because when the ball gets a bit older - after 10 overs - it is not easy on this track. With the fielding restrictions and two men out of the ring, he scored quickly and fearlessly against our spinners.

DAVIE, Fla. Jean-Gabriel Pageau Senators Jersey Authentic . -- Being an aggressive cornerback, Xavien Howard interrupted an inquisitors question Tuesday, and it went incomplete.The subject was Howards most eye-catching attribute, and the Miami Dolphins rookie eagerly jumped in midway through the query.Ball skill, Howard answered. Ive been a playmaker. They got me here for a reason. Ive just got to do what I did in college, and do more. Yes sir. Takeaways. Yes sir.Now that hes back at practice, the Dolphins second-round draft pick is showing some swagger. Howard missed the first three weeks of camp recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, which may have spoiled his chances of starting at cornerback in the season opener.He was activated last week from the physically unable to perform list, practiced for the third day in a row Tuesday, and could provide a significant upgrade in a shaky secondary.It feels good to be back out there competing again with my guys, Howard said.The former Baylor star required right knee surgery after hurting his knee on the final day of minicamp in June. That temporarily took him out of the competition for the job opposite veteran newcomer Byron Maxwell.Howard said his goal remains to win a starting job this year, and hes not fretting about the practice time missed.I wouldnt call it a setback, he said. Id just say its a learning process that I went through, and Im just learning from it -- a lot of mental reps, just seeing what the older guys were doing and learning from them.Before the injury, Howard received favorable reviews in offseason drills. New coach Adam Gase especially liked the knack Howard showed for deflections and interceptions.He gets his hands on a lot of balls, Gase said. When he does get both hands up to make a play on the ball, he usually catches it.Howard made nine interceptions in his final two years at Baylor, and now the Dolphins are eager to see him in an NFL game. Hell sit out Thursday against Atlanta, but expects to play in next weeks preseason finale, and has no doubt hell play in the season opener Sept. 11 at Seattle.In Howards absence, converted receiver Tony Lippett has been working with the first team at cornerback. Expected to join the mix eventually is veteran newcomer Chris Culliver, who has yet to practice while he recovers from a serious knee injury last Thanksgiving.This week the Dolphins have slowly been working Howard into one-on-one and team drills.I wouldnt say hes far behind mentally, Gase said. Hes dialed in to what were doing. Hes playing one-on-one coverage a lot of the time. Thats his strength. Were going to try to lean on his strength of matching him up with somebody and letting him go.That sounds good to Howard. He wore an NFL uniform for the first time Friday, watching from the sideline when the Dolphins played at Dallas.I just couldnt explain the feeling, he said. It was my first NFL game and I was excited, cheering guys on.Soon he expects to have teammates cheering for him.---AP NFL website: and Steven Wine on Twitter: His work can be found at Logan Brown Senators Jersey Authentic . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Cody Ceci Senators Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory.We continue the quarterfinals of TSN.cas 2013 Play of the Year Showdown with Pavel Datsyuks second play of the round going up against a tremendous second effort from Magnus Paajarvi. In Round Two of the 2013 POY Showdown, Pavel Datsyuk narrowly beat Shawn Matthias, grabbing 51.86 per cent of the votes. Magnus Paajarvi easily defeated Sidney Crosby, ending up with 71.51 per cent of the votes. This POY entry by Datsyuk showcases his hands, vision and perseverance.  He starts by throwing a solid hit in his own defensive zone and retreiving the loose puck, and by the time this play is over, Datsyuk makes every single Nashvillle player on the ice look silly. Jean-Gabriel Pageau Senators Jersey.  Paajarvis uses his wheels to bring the puck towards the net from the outside, beating his man to the lane, he cuts across the slot and rips a shot that Colorados Semyon Varlamov stops, but it is the rebound that provides the setup for the POY candidate. As the puck flutters through the air Paajarvi uses some quick thinking and heaps of skill as he knocks the puck past a stupefied Varlamov. You can watch the highlights and make your decision here ( Every vote counts, so watch all the plays and take part in the Play of the Year Showdown.

Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. WILLOWBROOK, Ill. -- With one out in the first inning of the National League Championship Series Game 5 on Thursday night, Gail Schuster shuffled to the end of her motorized wheelchair, sat up as straight as she possibly could and began yelling at the flat-screen television a few feet in front of her.Hurry up! Schuster beckoned. Oh hurry up! Please hurry up!Half a country away, Chicago Cubs leadoff man Dexter Fowler was attempting to score from first base on a double into the right-field corner by Anthony Rizzo. And the 75-year-old Schuster, confined to a wheelchair for more than a half-century due to a rare bone disease, couldnt watch quietly without begging Fowler home.Hurry! she kept repeating.As Fowler rounded third, a flip phone in the Cubs bag draped over the arm of Schusters wheelchair began to buzz. CALL FROM 2-0-7... Schuster ignored it, waiting until Fowler crossed the plate, Rizzo was safely at second and her beloved Cubs had a 1-0 first-inning lead to pick up.Hello? she said to a caller who probably should have known better. Im watching the game.It was a scene surely repeated in living rooms, hospital rooms and nursing homes around the country. Elderly Cubs fans, in the late innings of their lives, starting to believe what was once unthinkable: the Chicago Cubs playing in their first World Series since 1945.You always think its going to go the same way it always does -- they freeze up, Schuster said. A couple nights ago, thats what it looked like, very much timid and afraid. But now theyve come together.There were so many years they fell apart, I never thought it would happen, added David Baker, like Schuster a resident at Chateau Center in Chicagos southwest suburbs. But maybe this is the year.At 88 years old, Baker admits that his long-term memory is a far cry from what it once was, not entirely a bad thing for a lifelong Cubs fan. Baker says he doesnt remember the collapse of 69, the ground ball rolling through Leon Durhams legs in 1984 or the crushing Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS.Steve Bartman? Baker asks. I have no idea who that is.Schuster, on the other hand, remembers all the heartbreak. But she wouldnt have it any other way. The Cubs have always been there for her, so until the day she dies she will return the favor. A self-described die-hard, she has listened to or watched nearly every Cubs game since she was a teenager and health issues forced her to drop out of school in the seventh grade and confined her to a wheelchair at the age of 21. On her darkest, most depressed days, she would turn to Ernie Banks, Ron Santo and Billy Williams to lift her spirits.I fought that wheelchair the entire time. I didnt want it, she said. But every day I looked forward to the ballgame. My mom would get hot dogs, potato chips and a Coke and I would watch them and listen to Jack Brickhouse. It helped me get through a lot of hard days.No matter what was going on, the Cubs became a constant for me. They were always there. And as I became older it was a bridge to talk to people and meet people.Schuster made her first trip to Wrigley Field in 2007 and says she has been there about six times since. Today, Schuster has no surviving family. She was never able to have children and was an only child. But in the halls of Chateau Center she has built a reputation as the biggest of Cubs fans.Night games arent exactly easy for the elderly. As Thuursday nights Game 5 began, most of the other residents of Chateau Center were either in bed or on their way there. Jason Castro Astros Jersey. Yet there was Schuster, in the nursing homes media room, barking at the TV with the passion of someone 50 years younger.Of course I stay up and watch, Shuster explained. I dont get up at 6 a.m. like a lot of these people do. I just sleep til 10.Ninety-year-old Bobby Clark quietly watched the first two innings with Schuster before fading and heading back to his room. He planned on reading about the game in Friday mornings newspaper. I read it every day, he said.Two other Cubs fans, Baker and 86-year-old Joe Zahradnik, hung around the media room for pregame but called it a night before Fowler had even scored in the first. Said Zahradnik: I can only watch day games. And Baker: Ill find out in the morning if we won.But there was Schuster, starting her night in the media room and ending it in her bedroom, glued to the Cubs game all the way until the final out. Through the course of the night, she revealed that Kris Bryant is cute and she admires Addison Russells baby face. He looks like its too late at night for him to be out, she said. In the NLCS, shes quickly grown a dislike for the Dodgers?Adrian Gonzalez. He just seems so nasty to me. When Gonzalez struck out to end the first inning and chirped to the umpire afterward, she made note. See what I mean? she said. Hes just so intimidating. You dont need to act that way. And she was less than pleased with L.A.s baserunners jumping off first base in an effort to distract Cubs left-hander Jon Lester. I cant believe the way they are acting, she said. Its so ignorant.Schuster believes this is the Cubs year because they are no longer led by aging veterans and instead have such a young, talented core. We used to always get players at the end when they were limping on the field, she said. I dont know why we would buy them. But this new guy, Theo [Epstein], hes done some great changes.Schusters bedroom features a Cubs blanket and she regularly drinks from a Cubs mug. Wrapped around her left wrist is a Cubs bracelet and strategically positioned on her nightstand are a pair of Cubs rings that she would prefer others dont touch. She insists she isnt superstitious, yet when she found out the daughter of another resident works in Guest Services at Wrigley Field, she gave the woman a miniature plush goat that said curse breaker on it to take to the ballpark during the division series against the Giants.It worked, she said. They won.But now comes the real test. Up 3-2 in the series and headed back to Wrigley Field, the Cubs stand at the same point they did 13 years earlier against the Florida Marlins. But this time, Schuster, Clark, Baker, Zahradnik and elderly Cubs fans all across Chicago believe the outcome will be different. They have no choice. Their time is running out. They need the Cubs to beat the Dodgers and go on to win the World Series this year.And when they do?A beer, Zahradnik said. A very good beer.I will probably order a pizza, Schuster said. That would be such a great way to celebrate. Spinach, mushrooms and black olives. Yum.Baker has other thoughts.Ill celebrate quietly, the 88-year-old said. At this age, I dont need to be loud.

Topics this week include the Browns next steps at quarterback, rookie signal-caller?Carson Wentzs sensational debut -- and what could have been -- plus, the connection Texans coach Bill OBrien had to his first-round pick. Golden State Warriors Hats .Browns forced to change QB plans -- againFor now, the best guess on the time?Robert Griffin III will miss is 10-12 weeks, per sources. With Griffin sidelined with a shoulder injury, Josh McCown becomes the starter, and rookie third-round pick Cody Kessler becomes the backup. But there are more questions there, as is usually the case at quarterback in Cleveland.Browns sources say Kessler is not close to?being ready to play -- which doesnt mean he wont -- but expectations for him arent particularly high. Yet there are those in the Browns building who think Griffins injury could turn out to be a good thing for the franchise, because coach Hue Jackson was so focused on righting Griffin. The team now can move on and do what it needs.Where the Browns?go and what they do next are significant issues. Their recent track record at quarterback is not overly favorable. The quarterbacks the Browns loved in the offseason?were Jared Goff, Kessler and Griffin, per team sources. The quarterbacks they didnt care for were Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott, per the same sources. Those same men who?appear to have missed last offseason will be in charge of finding Clevelands next quarterback, whoever that is, this offseason. They need to find Clevelands quarterback of the future, which is tied to the other issue.Since rejoining the NFL in 1999, the Browns have had 25 starting quarterbacks, the most in the NFL. At the rate this is going, Kessler is likely to be the 26th, practice squad quarterback Kevin Hogan could be the 27th ... and either Deshaun Watson or DeShone Kizer, two of college footballs top QBs, could be the 28th.--?Adam SchefterIts early, but Carson Wentz has traits to succeedTo be fair, it will take more than one game and probably more than a year to determine whether the Cleveland Browns blew it by not giving more consideration to draft Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick.Nevertheless, before the Browns traded that pick to the Eagles, there were some NFL evaluators who agreed that Wentz fit the mold of an AFC North quarterback.At 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Wentz has the prototype size of QBs such as the Steelers Ben Roethlisberger, the Ravens Joe Flacco and former Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer. Current Bengals QB Andy Dalton, though not as?big as those three quarterbacks, does not have a frail frame.The dome-free AFC North is portrayed as the NFLs real black-and-blue division because of its physical DNA. One personnel man opined that the quarterbacks in the division will not go physically unscathed but argued that their stature allows them to recover from injuries. In fact, every one of the aforementioned quarterbacks -- Roethlisberger, Flacco, Palmer and Dalton -- have missed games because of injuries.Wentz also is not immune to injury. Last October, he broke his wrist. The injury required surgery, but he came back to lead North Dakota State to an FCS national title. He also fractured ribs last month in his first preseason game,?but the Eagles deemed him ready to open the season as the starter when Sam Bradford was traded to the Vikings. They see him as a physically and mentally resilient quarterback but still emphasize that he needs to get the ball out of his hands quickly, because the pounding takes its toll.More than one personnel man also suggested Wentzs hand size (10 inches) projected well in a division that often plays in inclement weather later in the season (the NFC East would also qualify).Then is it a worthy counterpoint to note that Wentz played his college home games indoors at the Fargodome at North Dakota State? That did not bother one general manager, who pointed out that the Green Bay Packers largely practice indoors when the weather turns frosty, yet have a decided home-field advantage outdoors at Lambeau Field. The GM said Wentz being acclimated to?that?climate all his life was a more favorable factor.Its nothing more than a snapshot, but it was a snapshot taken by some evaluators before the 2016 draft.-- Chris MortensenBill OBrien commits to former commitmentAs the 2016 NFL draft approached, most expected Texans coach Bill OBrien to make a major push for one of his former Penn State recruits. And he did.Only it wasnt Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg, but rather Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller.When Fuller was starring at Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia, his first scholarship offer came from none other than OBrien and Penn State. Fuller verbally committed to OBrien and Penn State. But when the Jerry Sandusky sanctions were handed down, he opened his recruiting again and opted for Notre Dame.When OBrien had another chance to land Fuller last spring, he and the Texans traded up one slot in the first round to draft the wide receiver who?escaped Penn State.Sure enough, Fuller reeled in five catches for 107 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. When OBrien was asked about how Fuller was able to bounce back with a strong game after dropping the first pass thrown in his direction, he knew why, perhaps better than anyone.The one thing I know about Will, having known him for a while, hes a very resilient guy, OBrien said. He grew up in a great family, hard-working parents. Im sure they taught him about, Look, sometimes youre going to get knocked down. You have to be able to pick yourself back up. Thats something he does well.OBrien knows Fuller, trusts Fuller and believes in Fuller. Now, with Houston heading into Week 2 matchup vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, he has already been rewarded by him, too.-- Adam SchefterHammerhead?shows why fullbacks matterWhen Denver Broncos rookie fullback Andy Janovich broke loose for a 28-yard touchdown run in the season-opening win over the Panthers, the NFLs first rushing score of the 2016 season, former Cowboys great Daryl Moose Johnston noted that when he glanced at his Twitter account there were three mentions that he says were almost identical: Somewhere, Moose Johnston is smiling.Johnston was indeed smiling. He believes the fullback position, which was on a path toward NFL extinction, still has a future.Were seeing defenses, especially teams like the Arizona Cardinals, that are loading up the back eight essentially using a safety as that extra linebacker, and it gives an offense an opportunity for a fullback like Janovich to create some favorable matchups in blocking, said Johnston, who studies the game when prepping for his Fox Sports broadcast assignments. The big thing, though, is you have to find that guy who is not just a thumper, but one who can be versatile in formations, on a free release where he can recognize coverages and be a viable receiver down in that red zone, where points are a premium. Janovich appears to have that type of ability.A sixth-round draft pick, Janovich was a walk-on at Nebraska who earned a scholarship and became known as Hammerhead when he was the often the lead blocker for Ameer Abdullah, who had three 1,000-yard rushing seasons before being drafted by the Lions in 2015. Janovich also was a special teams standout, a must if a fullback is going to land a job in the NFL. His Hammerhead moniker has stuck with the Broncos. Janovich was on the field for almost half the offensive snaps in the opener against the Panthers.-- Chris MortensenGrowing branches from Patriots-Colts rivalryThe rivalry between New England and Indianapolis has been so good that it has had a lasting impact on four teams this weekend not named the Patriots or the Colts.The general managers of the Titans and the Lions, who play each other Sunday, are Bill Belichick disciples. Tennessee GM Jon Robinson spent 12 years in New England (2002-2013), during which time he worked with Bob Quinn, who was with the Patriots from 2000-2015 and is now Detroits GM. The Patriot Ways already have come into play in Tennessee and Detroit, with Robinson and Quinns own influence on their respective rosters.The general managers of the Jaguars and the Chargers, who play each other Sunday, are Bill Polian disciples. Jacksonville GM Dave Caldwell spent 10 years with the Colts (1998-2007), during which time he worked with Tom Telesco, who was with the Colts from 1998-2012 and is now San Diegos GM. The Colts Ways already have come into play in Jacksonville and San Diego, with Caldwell and Telescos own influence on their respective rosters.So even in the NFL, trees grow branches. The tree that was the home of the NFLs best rivalry this century, Patriots vs. Colts, produced branches that now will be tangled Sunday.-- Adam SchefterEmptying out the notebookBrowns veteran QB Josh McCown, who takes over the starting job for injured Robert Griffin III, had a reasonable protest about the notion the Browns should tank for the No. 1 pick in 2017. McCown mentioned the need to respect veterans on the team such as tackle Joe Thomas. Thats not lip service to Thomas, who declined to push the front office for a trade to the Broncos last October when it was in discussion. The same sources say Thomas then privately cited the loyalty to other veterans in the Browns locker room and the organization that made him the third overall pick in 2006.The most surprising statistic about Spencer Wares opening game for the Chiefs was?his seven catches for 129 yards. He had just?six catches for 5 yards in 2015. Hes got good hands, Chiefs general manager?John Dorsey said. He was a pretty good baseball player in high school, good enough to play baseball at LSU his freshman year. You cant be a good baseball player and have bad hands.When the Ravens passed on overpaying pending free-agent receiver Torrey Smith in 2015, they knew they were subtracting a player who played to one of quarterback Joe Flaccos strengths -- deep-ball accuracy. Thats one reason they drafted Breshad Perriman (4.25 in the 40-yard dash)?last year, but Perriman missed his rookie season with an injury. Then GM Ozzie Newsome got insurance with Mike Wallace (4.33 in the 40) this offseason. Big plays from Flacco to Wallace (66-yard TD) and to Perriman (35 yards to help set up a field goal) were moments the Ravens needed to beat the Bills 13-7 in their opener.Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells has never been a proponent of paying cornerbacks huge bucks, though he acknowledges the cost of doing business is going up. Parcells, however, is a proponent of loading up on defensive backs. I tell my guys still coaching that you need more than four or five cornerbacks. You better have seven of those guys in todays game.The Patriots play the Dolphins on Sunday, one of three consecutive home games before Tom Brady returns from suspension. A breeze after a tough road win at Arizona? Maybe not. The Seahawks believe the Dolphins defense will be a challenge for any opponent after a narrow 12-10 home-opening win over Miami. Theyre pretty darn good, Seahawks GM John Schneider said. Theyre deep, especially on the defensive line. ... Theyve got talented guys positionally playing where they should play.Titans coach Mike Mularkey this weekend will indirectly face his son, Patrick Mularkey, who is the Lions pro scouting coordinator. Its pretty neat, Mike Mularkey said. I actually asked him yesterday -- it never really dawned on me -- who my wife and his mom is rooting for to win this game. I havent asked her yet, but its special, because Im proud of him. Very proud of the job hes done. I love that hes in this business, because I think hes really good at what he does. Regardless, I think theres a win in this somehow, in the outcome of this game. Golden State Warriors Jersey . LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St. Custom Golden State Warriors Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. .

Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cleveland ace Corey Kluber had a long-toss session and Indians right-hander Danny Salazar threw on the side on Friday, providing a pair of encouraging signs for the injury-riddled AL Central champions.The Indians will begin the playoffs with only two healthy veteran starting pitchers; right-handers Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin. Left-hander Rick Merritt made his first big league start Friday at Kansas City after three relief appearances.Cleveland also placed Carlos Carrasco on the 60-day disabled list before the series opener against the Royals, sidelining the right-hander for the rest of the year. Carrasco broke the pinkie finger on his pitching hand when he was hit by a line drive on Sept. 17.Kluber, the 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner, left his start Monday with a strained quadriceps. Salazar, an All-Star selection this year, has a forearm strain.Kluber is 18-9 with a 3.14 ERA in 32 starts this year.Hes not on the mound yet, but hes keeping his arm nice and stretched out, Indians manager Terry Francona said. And hes making progress, too.Francona said he does not know when Kluber will throw off the mound.We can set up all we want, but until hes ready we dont want to, Francona saidd. Kevin Durant Jersey. Hell push enough. We dont need to push.The Indians are optimistic Kluber could start the second or third game of the American League Division Series if he has no setbacks.Salazar, who has not pitched since Sept. 9, could throw a simulated game Monday.Its not necessarily etched in stone, but its probably the next thing hell do, Francona said.Also Friday, the Indians activated catcher Yan Gomes from the 60-day DL. Gomes broke his right wrist during a minor league rehab assignment after he had been sidelined by a shoulder injury.While Gomes was hitting .165 in 71 games, Indians pitchers had a 3.62 ERA when he was behind the plate, which is the best among four Indians catchers used this season.Francona said Gomes is not ready to hit.If we put him in itd be for defense and well kind of go from there, Francona said. But, I think just the fact that he can get in the game and play defense is exciting for him and us.Gomes did take batting practice before the game.Thats probably the one that Ive got to figure out the impact and being able to tolerate it, Gomes said.

NORMAN, Okla. Detroit Tigers T-shirts . -- When Kyler Murray signed with Texas A&M as a five-star recruiting prospect last year, he probably had visions of quickly becoming a star college quarterback.As opposed to emulating them in practice.But after a short-lived, tumultuous tenure in College Station, Murray left for Oklahoma, where hes sitting out this season because of the transfer rule. In the meantime, Murray has been preparing the Sooners defense by mimicking some of the top quarterbacks in the country on Oklahomas scout team.First, it was Houston dual-threat standout Greg Ward Jr.This week, it has been Ohio State Heisman hopeful J.T. Barrett.Kyler knows what his responsibility is, and, as a defense, he gives us great looks, whether its doing what the system tells him to do, running the zone-read, stuff like that, Sooners linebacker Jordan Evans said. But then, at the same time, he makes a lot of plays on his feet to keep us on our toes.Two years ago, Murray was one of the most accomplished high school quarterbacks ever to come out of the state of Texas. He was the Gatorade National Player of the Year at Allen High and ended his phenomenal prep career with three straight state championships, 10,386 yards passing, 4,129 yards rushing and 186 total touchdowns.Murray was the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback recruit in the country, and he was hotly pursued by Oklahoma and Texas. Ultimately, he signed with the Aggies. But when he elected to transfer, he quickly settled back on the Sooners.It was a no-brainer for me, Murray told in the spring. Just the trust I had in [coach Bob Stoops and offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley], the stability here. Coach Linc is one of, if not the best OC in the country. Then you look at the guys around you that youre playing with. We have all the talent in the world here.Among that talent corps is starting quarterback Baker Mayfield, who can serve as a model for Murray.Two years ago, Mayfield himself was running Oklahomas scout-team offense after transferring in from Texas Tech. The next season, Mayfield beat out incumbent Trevor Knight for the starting job, led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff and finished fourth in the Heisman voting.Kylers game is pretty similar to Baker, in that, when Baker was our scout-team quarterback, you saw stuff he did like, Whoa, this kid can play, Evans said. Its the same thing with Kyler. A lot of athleticism, strong arm. He looks like he can play.Murrays path back to the playing field could take longer than Mayfields did. This summer, the Big 12 granted Mayfield his fourth season of eligibility back, which means hell be back in Norman in 2017. Even after that, Murray will have to beat out former ESPN 300 recruit Austin Kendall, a true freshman, who is the Sooners No. 2 quarterback.I think when my time comes well be ready, Murray said this spring.Until then, Murray will be channeling his energy into getting the defense ready for what it will see Saturday.Hes been doing a great job, Evans said. Im thankful we have him. Jose Iglesias Tigers Jersey .

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- Former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro will attempt to extend his remarkable comeback in 2016 when he launches the 2017 season at Aucklands ASB Tennis Classic in January.Del Potro, who played only six tournaments in 2014 and 2015 because of a wrist injury, was named the ATPs Comeback Player of the Year after lifting his ranking from 1,045 in February to 38 to wrap up the season.He reached the singles final at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and since June haas beaten world No. Nick Castellanos Tigers Jersey. 1s Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.

LEXINGTON, Ky. John Johnson Youth Jersey . - Sophomore defender Sophie Babo notched her first-career brace on Friday night, helping secure Kentuckys third Southeastern Conference point of the season as the Wildcats drew with Tennessee, 2-2 at the Bell Soccer Complex.Babo converted from the penalty spot in the 69th minute in a 1-1 match and converted with a clinical finish to the keepers left for the 2-1 lead. Tennessee would equalize in the 84th minute off a counterattack through Ariel Kupritzs second goal of the season.With the point, Kentucky moves to 0-5-3 in the Southeastern Conference and sits on three points in the league table. The Wildcats are 4-7-4 overall in 2016. Tennessee earned its first draw of the season as it moves to 9-6-1. The Vols are 4-3-1 inside of league action.The matchs opening goal came though the New Zealand international, Hannah Wilkinson, who scored her team-leading ninth goal of the year on 17 minutes. The Vols caught UK in a high line on transition and played a ball through the schemes of the Kentucky back four to Wilkinson, who beat UK goalkeeper Evangeline Soucie 1v1 and finished.Minnesotan Sophie Babo scored her first of two goals in the match in the 35th minute as she headed in a Tanya Samarzich corner kick to equalize in the first half. Babo was in the mouth of the goal about five yards out and Samarzich lifted in a perfect ball to an unmarked Babo, who finished to the keepers right for the 1-1 scoreline.Kentucky would take its first lead of the night in the 69th minute on Babos converted penalty.Tennessee equalized late in the match with seven minutes remaining to make it 2-2 as Kupritz scored her second of the season off a mistake along the UK backline which was transitioned into a counter and Wilkinson played a ball central to the middle, where an unmarked Kupritz was there waiting and beat Soucie low and to her right.Kentucky outshot Tennessee, 14-11 with the Wildcats earning 10 corners to the Vols three.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady is coming home this week, and hes bringing an offense that is playing some of its best football of the season.Brady was admittedly a little rusty in his first game back from a four-game Deflategate suspension, but still managed a 406-yard, three-touchdown performance in the Patriots 33-13 win over the Browns.Outside of his own individual efforts, he said Wednesday that he was more pleased with how many people got involved as the Patriots prepare to host Cincinnati on Sunday.Yeah, there were a lot of contributions from a lot of places, and I think thats what makes a good offense, Brady said.Not just always throwing it to one or two guys, but spreading the ball around and throwing the ball where theyre not.Tight end Martellus Bennett was the recipient of each of Bradys touchdown passes, with tight end Rob Gronkowski and receiver Chris Hogan both having 100-yard receiving games. It was the first time New England has had two 100-yard receivers in a game since 2014.It was also the first 100-yard game for Hogan, who had a diving 43-yard catch that set up the Patriots third touchdown.Its one of those things where you always gotta be running. You never know when the balls gonna come, especially on those deep routes, Hogan said.For me Im always trying to run hard. If you run your routes well and youre getting open you trust the quarterback and the offense.New Englands efficiency showed up particularly on third down, where it was 9 for 17. The Patriots hadnt been over 50 percent since their Week 1 win over Arizona.Bennett has been active in the offense all season, though he was primarily used as a blocker in the red zone during the first four games of the season. But even before posting his third multi-touchdown game of his career he said he was finding comfort in his first year in New England.The best thing about it is everything matters, Bennett said last week. Cooper Kupp Rams Jersey. Making a good block is praised just as much as making a great catch. So that makes it a bit easier because theres not a bigger emphasis on any phase of the game. Its like every single part, everyone cares about.That includes coach Bill Belichick, who said he hasnt been surprised by how well Bennett has been able to fit into what they are trying to do because of the flexibility hes shown since arriving.I think this is about what we thought it would be, Belichick said. His intelligence gives him a lot of versatility.Hes done that before in his career, multiple times, and I think thats what hes given us. Each team has its own personality and chemistry. I dont think theres any way you can orchestrate that as a coach, nor would I try to.Even more exciting for Brady may be that Gronkowski seems to be as healthy as hes been all season as he works back from a tender hamstring that caused him to miss the first two games of the season.After slowing increasing his playing time each week since his return, Gronk played a season-high 81 percent of the offensive snaps against Cleveland.Brady said he always tries to put in work on his throwing mechanics and that it was a focus both during the offseason and during his month-long suspension.I think thats translated into a lot of throws, but hopefully I can hit those ones down the field. Those are big ones. They change the whole field positon, he said.If you throw a 50-yarder, its five first downs. It shows up on the stat sheet a little differently, but the production is great when youre able to kind of hit those home run balls.---AP NFL websites: and Kyle Hightower on Twitter at 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 ' ' ' 
Tony Romo is hurt again, the defending champs get no respect and the rookie quarterback who wasnt drafted No. Austin Jackson Jersey . 2 overall got a starting job first.No division is more up for grabs than the NFC East.The Dallas Cowboys are Dak Prescotts team while Romo is out with a back injury. The fourth-round pick out of Mississippi State has been impressive in the preseason, climbing from No. 3 on the depth chart following injuries to Kellen Moore and Romo.After winning the division in 2014, the Cowboys fell to 4-12 last season and were 1-11 without Romo when he was twice sidelined by a broken left collarbone.The offense could survive without him if Prescott is the real deal, Dez Bryant stays healthy and No. 4 pick Ezekiel Elliott lives up to the hype.While Prescott has a chance to play, Carson Wentz will sit behind Chase Daniel despite projected starter Sam Bradford being traded to the Vikings on Saturday for a pair of draft picks, including a first-rounder in 2017. The Eagles traded a slew of picks to select Wentz at No. 2 in the draft, but he was slated to be the No. 3 quarterback long before injuring his ribs in the preseason opener.The Eagles should be rebuilding under new coach Doug Pederson, but every team is a contender in this weak division. Before being dealt, Bradford had looked sharp in Pedersons offense and the defense is vastly improved under defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.Kirk Cousins had a breakout year to lead the Redskins to a division title in 2015. But no team has repeated in the East since the Eagles won four straight from 2001-04.The Giants wont have Tom Coughlin on the sideline for the first time since 2003. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo replaced him, so Eli Manning, Odell Beckham Jr. and Co. will have continuity. A revamped defense could help New York end its four-year playoff drought.Heres some things to know about the NFC East:GIGANTIC GIANT: Defensive end Olivier Vernon, a major free-agent addition, was dominant in the preseason. The Giants spent $40 million, for this season, to re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul and sign Vernon, defensive tackle Damon Harrison, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and linebacker Kennan Robinson. They drafted cornerback Eli Apple in the first round to upgrade the secondary. The offense will score points. If defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo gets the most out of his group, New York should rise to the top.KIRKS CREW: Cousins earned himself a one-year contract worth $19.95 million on the franchise tag after throwing for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns. Robert Griffin III is gone, so theres no quarterback controversy in DC. But Cousins still has to prove himself after the team didnt give him a long-term contract. The Redskins gave All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman a $75 million, five-year deal to bolster the secondary. Norman better walk his talk after criticizing Beckham, Bradford and others.GANG GREEN: There hasnt been this much excitement surrounding the Eagles defense since Jim Johnson was calling the shots. Schwartz is the most accomplished defensive coordinator in Philadelphia since Johnson passed away. His defense was outstanding in the preseason, wreaking havoc and forcing turnovers. It wont be easy to maintain that success when the games count, but theyre on the right track. Defensive end Fletcher Cox got paid to be an elite player and should thrive in Schwartzs system. Linebacker Jordan Hicks returns after an injury shortened his promising rookie season. Safety Malcolm Jenkins has developed into one of the best at his position.DOOM IN BIG D: Romos latest injury is a big setback for the Cowboys, who were hoping to go from first-to-worst-to-first. But Prescott seems like an upgrade from Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel. He also has a better supporting cast. The real problem for Dallas will be stopping other teams. Starters DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory are suspended for the first four games and Rolando McClain will miss the first 10 games of the regular season.PREDICTED ORDER OF FINISH: Giants, Redskins, Eagles, Cowboys.---AP NFL website: Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Chicago White Sox Hats . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Jose Quintana Jersey .500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. . The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. Texas A&Ms loss to Arizona made it 0-3 against Pac-12 teams. The Aggies are 7-0 against other conferences.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Marieke Vervoort lives with nearly unbroken pain. Jean-Francois Berube Jersey . The Belgian has an incurable, degenerative spinal disease, sleeps only 10 minutes some nights, and in 2008 she signed euthanasia papers so she can decide when to end her own life.The 37-year-old Paralympian is prepared to die, but not now. Back home, newspapers have been reporting the wheelchair racer intends to kill herself after the Paralympics end next weekend.I think there is a great mistake about what the press told in Belgium, Vervoort said Sunday, speaking in English and surrounded by reporters wanting to hear her compelling story.This is totally out of the question, she added. When the day comes, when I have more bad days than good days -- I have my euthanasia papers. But the time is not there yet.This is Vervoorts last Paralympics. She won silver Saturday night in the T52 400 meters, adding to the gold and silver medals she won four years ago in London. Her last wheelchair race will be Saturday at 100 meters.Shes shown her will to live by tackling tough training, and its also helped keep her alive. But she has to give it up, as she has other things, as her body has broken down.Her pain is so severe at times that she loses consciousness, and she said the sight of her in pain has caused others to pass out.Its too hard for my body, Vervoort said. Each training Im suffering because of pain. Every race I train hard. Training and riding and doing competition are medicine for me. I push so hard -- to push literally all my fear and everything away.Vervoort is a strong advocate of the right to choose euthanasia, which is legal in Belgium. Like training hard, she said it gives her the control and puts my own life in my hands.Im really scared, but those (euthanasia) papers give me a lot of peace of mind because I know when its enough for me, I have those papers, she said.If I didnt have those papers, I think Id have done suicide already. I think there will be fewer suicides when every country has the law of euthanasia. ... I hope everybody sees that this is not murder, but it makes people live longer.Vervoort said getting the papers was difficult, requiring examinations by several doctors who looked at her mental and physical state. She said its not like having the flu.You only get those papers when there is no way back, she said.As her body withers, she needs a helper to visit four times daily. She suffers from epileptic seizures, and had one in 2014 when she was cooking pasta and spilled boiling water over her legs. That resulted in a four-month hospital stay.A beloved Labrador named Zenn now stays with her, pawing her when a seizure is about to occur. Zenn also pulls her socks out of the sock drawer, and helps carry groceries home when Vervoort buys too much.When Im going to have an epileptic attack, she warns me one hour before, Vervoort said. I dont know how she feels it.Vervoort said she keeps pushing back the day of her death, knowing it could come anytime -- as it can for anyone. She said she can be pain-free one minute, and nearly pass out a few minutes later.You have to live day-by-day and enjoy the little moments, she said. Everybody tomorrow can have a car accident and die, or a heart attack and die. It can be tomorrow for everybody.Vervoort calls herself a crazy lady. She still hopes to fly in an F-16 fighter jet, ride in a rally car, and shes curating a museum of her life going back to at least 14 when she was diagnosed with her rare illness. She also gives inspirational speeches, has picked out a singer for her wake, and says everyone will drink champagne, and not be bored with coffee and cake.She wants to be remembered as the lady who was always laughing, always smiling.I feel different about death now than years ago, Vervoort said. For me I think death is something like they operate on you, you go to sleep and you never wake up. For me its something peaceful.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: .

This upset changed the layout of the day as the lower bracket teams suddenly have FlipSid3 to fear as they look to make a deep run.Match 7: NRG vs. GeenesisNRG defeated Genesis to send the latter out of the tournament on the first day, a very disappointing showing for the North American third seed.

Overall Northern looked better on the day and should come in as the favorite, but Mockit Aces should in no way be overlooked.

FlipSid3, despite having a bad first day, is still a stellar team that should come out of this No. 1 seed matchup with flying colors and advance to the lower bracket finals. If NRG can overcome this challenge it should truly be considered to be the same high caliber as iBuyPower from last RLCS. If NRG wins this, be ready for an insane day.Predicted winner: FlipSid3 TacticsMatch 3: Lower bracket semifinal - Precision Z vs. Take 3In addition to a No. 1 seed duel, we also have a No. 4 seed matchup.
