MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd needed plenty of superlatives to describe Thursday nights victory. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Nere .Giannis Antetokounmpo and Jabari Parker had 27 points each to lead the Bucks past the Indiana Pacers 125-107.You could see right off the bat they were ready, Kidd said of the dynamic duo. They took good shots. They shared the ball. If they had an open shot, they took it. If not, they got off of it. They made good, quick decisions. When you do that, youre going to score a lot of points.Kidd has turned the offense over to Antetokounmpo, and the 6-foot-11, 222-pound guard has responded. He had nine assists and seven rebounds and his running mate, Parker, made a career-high four 3-pointers and grabbed eight rebounds.Kidd also got production out of Greg Monroe, who added 16 points, 16 rebounds and six assists, and Tony Snell, the newcomer acquired from the Chicago Bulls for Michael Carter-Williams, had 14 points, including a 3 at the buzzer that gave Milwaukee a 63-57 lead at halftime.Everybody was great, Kidd said. Everybody who participated did their job and stayed in character. It was a great team win against a talented, well-coached team.Paul George scored 23 points, reserve C.J. Miles added 19, Jeff Teague had 16 and Myles Turner 15, but it wasnt enough as the Pacers slipped to 0-3 on the road.When Parker hit from in close and then from beyond the arc to open the fourth quarter, it looked like the Bucks would coast to their third win of the season.Indiana had other ideas and closed with a flurry led by George who hit a 3-pointer with 9:28 to go, cutting the deficit to 95-82. When Turner made two free throws and Thaddeus Young hit a basket, the Bucks lead was nine.After a steal by Monta Ellis who dished to George for another basket, the Pacers trailed by seven with 4:11 to play, but that was as close as they got. Snell hit a 3-pointer, Miles Plumlee dunked and Antetokounmpo scored in traffic to push the lead to 14 points and the Bucks regained control of the game.George was not happy with the outcome, despite coming close down the stretch.Im real frustrated, he said. I know how good we could be. I know how good we were. Were nowhere close to it. Its embarrassing the way were playing and we look on the floor right now.Miles agreed with his teammates assessment.Were not tied together, man, he said. You can see it. You can see it. Were not showing no spirit, no heart. You dont see guys getting excited about anything.Parker sparked the Bucks with nine points as Milwaukee opened the third quarter with some energy, attacked the boards on both ends and pulled away to a 74-61 lead. Parker hit a 3, two driving dunks and a putback before George stopped the surge with a wide-open 3-pointer with 7:03 left in the quarter. But the Bucks were off and running again, building the lead to as many as 17.You look at what Jabari did tonight, catch-and-shoot, making plays for his teammates, Kidd said. He scored. He made the extra pass. Thats his game. Hes the total package.Malcom Brogdon, the Bucks second-round draft pick from Virginia, scored 12 points, including two free throws that pushed the margin to 90-73 with seconds left in the third.TIP-INSPacers: G Rodney Stuckey missed his third consecutive game with a right hamstring strain. ... The Pacers took three of four from the Bucks last season. Indianas 37-point win on Nov. 21 was the Pacers largest win and Milwaukees largest loss in 2015-16.Bucks: Coming into Thursdays game, Antetokounmpo is the only NBA player averaging over 23 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks per game. ... F Steve Novak has yet to play in a game.WE OWN THE PAINTThe Bucks came into the game tied with Oklahoma City for second in the NBA in points in the paint (53.5) behind only the Washington Wizards (56.7). Milwaukee recorded 62 points in the paint against the Pacers who had 42.NOT VERY PRETTYThe Pacers had 21 turnovers which the Bucks turned into 34 points. Milwaukee returned the favor by making 22 miscues which Indiana converted into 26 points.UP NEXTPacers: On Saturday, they look for payback against the Bulls who beat them 118-101 on Oct. 29 in Chicago.Bucks: On Saturday, they host the Sacramento Kings who took the two-game series last season.

Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Former Portuguese international Deco talks about growing up as a young footballer in Brazil, his experience with top European clubs and life after retirement.How did sport shape your life?Of course, sport was (there) all my life, ever since I was a kid. I started playing football in the streets with my friends in Brazil. When I started out, I couldnt imagine that one day I would be a professional footballer. Back then, I just wanted to have fun and enjoy playing football with my friends. And sports has been my life, until today (smiles) and I cant imagine my life without sport.Who was it who introduced you to football?The first member (of my family) was my father. My father was in love of football. I was the only son my parents had - I have three sisters. My father gave me my first football, and I started to play, just like everybody else in Brazil. I played with my friends in the streets and thats where my first football memories come from.How did you make the transition to professional football?Yeah, like I said before, I started playing with my friends. At 11, I came to an academy in Brazil - and it was an important academy. Around that time I was playing football and futsal at the same time. All of my weekends were spent playing football (smiles). At 15, I stopped playing football and started playing only futsal, and then I returned to playing football at 17. By the time I was aged 13-14, football wasnt just for fun. I had to work, I had schedules, and I had to take up responsibilities. Of course, I wasnt a professional, but there were some big games. I had to be responsible, because I was living alone, I was living in the club. That was the time, that football started to be a part of my life.What was the best part of the journey along the way in professional football?Porto, Barcelona and Chelsea were good (smiles) but before that I was playing for Corinthians (in Brazil).To start with, my career was very difficult, because I changed clubs many times in my early years. I came to Portugal when I was 18 years old, alone. They loaned me to a second-division club and it was difficult, but I knew that I had to work. I needed to believe in my capacity to do something different. Of course, it was more important that I had the opportunity to become a good footballer.(Getting to play for) Porto was my passion, because I couldnt imagine when I was young that one day I would be playing for Porto. My life was totally different from what I could have imagined. The first time I went to the stadium to watch a Porto game with a friend, I said to my friend that this (Porto) is the club that I would like to play for. It was six fantastic years there...I won everything. My relationship with the club is amazing. They still respect their people after all these years.(Representing) Barcelona was my dream, and I refused a lot of clubs because I knew that my club was Barcelona. I had the good fortune of moving to Barcelona and be a part of the history of the club. Normally in football, everything finishes (when yoou move to a club like Barcelona) but after my time in Barcelona, I had the chance to move to other clubs; I got to move to Chelsea. Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Rosa. By that time, I wanted to have an experience in Premier League, and my first year in Chelsea was very good. After that I had some personal problems in Brazil within my family, and my second year was not so good. I had two more years on my contract, but I decided to come back to Brazil, because of these problems. But it was good to come back to Brazil after 16 years, to play football, and I moved to Fluminense, which was fantastic. I won two Brazilian championships, which is a very difficult competition. Now when I think back, I didnt play a lot of clubs in my career, but all the clubs I played for are a part of my life and these memories will stay with me.If you were asked for your two best memories from your playing days, what would they be?It is very difficult (to pick two moments) in one career. It is a difficult choice to pick out two moments from a 22-year career. But I think the first game for Portugal was against Brazil (in 2003), and I scored a goal and we won the game (in fact, Portugals 2-1 win was their first over Brazil since 1966). Of course, it was a friendly but these kinds of games are never a friendly game (smiles). That was a good memory. And winning the Champions League with Barcelona (in 2006), that was a great memory too.How has life post-retirement been?Yeah, its very difficult to stop playing. I decided to stop because I had a lot of injuries. I would say football is my life, I am in love with football, and to be suffering is not good. Thats why I decided to stop, though it was a very difficult decision. But now I am taking my time. I have more time for my family, to take care of my things, my business. I still work in football, Ive got some consultancies with some clubs. I work as an agent for some players, and here (laughs) working on TV. This is how I am doing. This time (as an analyst) is good, because I am seeing football from the other parts of the world, a different vision from what were (used to) playing. I am 38, and I have time to see what I would really like to do in football, and thats what I am doing now.Do you have any message for budding footballers?The thing is, today everybody wants to be Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar...but of course in my time, when I was younger, I wanted to be Zico, Maradona (smiles). I know and I understand this, but the question is the kids first need to enjoy. They need to play football if they like. They need to play basketball if they prefer that, or cricket if they like. Sport is important not to become a professional, but to learn a lot of things; to learn how to work with your teammates, to help them win something. Theres a lot of good experiences in sport. Football is amazing for the kids; they need to enjoy, they need to have fun. Thats more important.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers manager Jeff Banister was ejected Monday night after the Los Angeles Angels won a replay challenge on a play that became a ground-rule double after Yunel Escobar was thrown out trying to turn the hit into a triple. Air Max 95 2018 .After being out by several feet sliding into third base in the sixth inning, Escobar motioned toward the outfield. Manager Mike Scioscia then challenged that the ball had become lodged underneath the padding on the wall in right-center field and should have been ruled dead, as per the ground rules for the Rangers ballpark.We thought that someone put their hands up like it was out of play. I think thats what [Escobar] saw, Scioscia said. He kind of stutter-stepped and slowed down.The replay showed that the ball had lodged under the padding. Right fielder Nomar Mazara had to reach twice to get the ball but never indicated that the ball was stuck.When umpires put Escobar at second base, Banister immediately came out of the dugout and was ejected by crew chief and second base umpire Joe West when he continued to argue the call.From the infield, you cant tell if its stuck. ... But when we went to replay, they said it stuck. So its plain and simple a ground-rule double, West told a pool reporter after the game.I had an outfielder who felt like the ball was not lodged.

Although the first baseman had some words with home plate umpire Kerwin Danley as he walked back to the dugout, there were no demonstrative actions before the ejection.After Moreland realized he had been tossed from the game, he turned and started to argue before Banister got between his player and the umpire.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

With just two races remaining in this years Formula One season, ESPN takes a look at how the 2016 title battle can be won and lost. Cheap Case Keenum Jersey .Nico Rosberg is in the box seat for a maiden F1 title, leading Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton by 19 points heading to Brazil where a win would see him crowned champion. The German has the luxury of knowing that he does not even have to win a race in order to beat Hamilton to the title.With two second-place finishes behind Hamilton he would still win by five points and even one second and one third would be good enough, handing him a two-point advantage come the chequered flag in Abu Dhabi.So can Hamilton pull off a remarkable comeback and snatch the championship from under Rosbergs nose, or will the German be celebrating his first title?How things stand1. Rosberg - 349 (9 wins) 2. Hamilton - 330 (8 wins)Where the title can be wonRosberg has entered the last two rounds with a chance of taking the title, but Mexico is the first time he has been able to clinch it regardless of his teammates result. However, if Hamilton can record a third consecutive win and come out on top at Interlagos then the championship will definitely go down to the wire at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 27.Hamilton has plenty of experience of fighting for a championship at the last round of a season, having done so on four previous occasions (2007, 2008, 2010 and 2014). Rosberg, on the other hand, can only draw on one previous title battle at a season finale, when he lost out to Hamilton in 2014.Who needs what?RosbergTo put it simply, Rosberg will be champion if he wins in Brazil, regardless of where Hamilton finishes. Beyond that there are a number of different title permutations that can pan out depending on where the Mercedes drivers finish.Outscoring Hamilton by seven points will put the title beyond the Britons reach. This equates to:If Hamilton is second, Rosberg needs to win.If Hamilton is third, Rosberg needs to win.If Hamilton is fourth, Rosberg needs to be second. This scenario would see Hamilton and Rosberg tied on points and race wins if Hamilton claimed victory in Abu Dhabi and Rosberg did not score. Rosberg would therefore win the title on count back, with four second place finishes compared to Hamiltons three.If Hamilton is fifth, Rosberg needs to be second.If Hamilton is sixth, Rosberg needs to be third.If Hamilton is seventh, Rosberg needs to be third.If Hamilton is eighth, Rosberg needs to be fourth.If Hamilton is ninth, Rosberg needs to be fifth.If Hamilton is 10th, Rosberg needs to be sixth.HamiltonHamiltons best chance of keeping his title chances alive is to win both races. If he wins in Brazil and Abu Dhabi and Rosberg can only record one second and a fourth, Hamilton would claim the championship by a single point.The size of Hamiltons taskHamilton certainly has his work cut out if he is going to win a fourth F1 crown, not only due to the sizeable points gap but also because in nine attempts he has never won in Brazil. But the Briton has already managed to wipe out a 43-point deficit after Spain, turning it into a 6-point lead six races later, after winning in Hungary.Following a record-breaking four wins in July, Hamilton boasted a 19-point advantage heading into the summer break, but his momentum took a hit when the effects of suffering a number of engine problems earlier in the season forced Hamilton to start from the back in Belgium. Rosberg took advantage and enjoyed a 45-point swing back in his favour over the next four races, until Hamilton fought back with wins in the United States and Mexico.Reliability could play a major factor in the outcome of this years championship for either driver. Since a heart-breaking engine blowout while leading the Malaysian Grand Prix, Hamilton has had a clean run of reliability. A single problem for Rosberg would swing the title back towards Hamilton, while another issue for Hamilton would almost certainly end his hopes.Championships have, however, been won in equally difficult situations to the one Hamilton faces, as he knows all too well. Hamilton was 17 points clear (under the old points system) of Ferraris Kimi Raikkonen heading into the final two rounds of 2007, but the Finn successfully overturned the deficit to snatch the championship by one point.

Discount Under Armour .We want the best for him moving forward in his life, first and foremost, Stoops said.Evans, a redshirt sophomore, started the Sooners first three games, tying a career high with five tackles in Week 3 against Ohio State. But Evans sat out the game Saturday against TCU.Stoops said Evans will remain on medical scholarship, and he will have the opportunity to be a student-coach for the Sooners.With Evans done, junior college transfer Emmanuel Beal, who started against TCU, figures to see a bigger role going forward.The Sooners face rival Texas in Dallas this weekend. Under Armour Store . Brazilian national coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has confirmed that the veteran goalkeeper is set to join Toronto on loan, saying it will help him be ready for the World Cup. Under Armour Shoes On Sale . Ashley Youngs cross was inadvertently headed by Chester into his own net in the 66th minute, allowing United to claim a third straight league win. "We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Todd Gurley is averaging just 3.0 yards per carry. Blake Bortles has more turnovers than touchdowns. Odell Beckham Jr., Jordan Reed and Brandon Marshall dont yet have a touchdown catch.Are they going through an early season funk, or is it a sign of decline?NFL Nation reporters pick a struggling player from each team and predict whether he is in the middle of a small slump or a big slide.AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo BillsBig slide: Quarterback Tyrod TaylorHe ranks 22nd in completion percentage (61.0), 21st in yards per attempt (6.84), 20th in passer rating (83.6) and 16th in Total QBR (62.6) through the first three weeks of the season. Those arent terrible numbers, but the Bills were looking for a bump in Taylors performance as a passer and he mostly hasnt delivered. As long as opponents can keep Taylor contained in the pocket, they are comfortable having him try to beat them through the air. Theres a blueprint on how to beat Taylor and unless he can break a few big runs, Taylor cant seem to overcome the game-planning against him. -- Mike RodakMiami DolphinsBig slide: Cornerback Byron MaxwellMiamis No. 1 cornerback had two consecutive bad games against the Patriots and Browns. Maxwells coverage has been inconsistent, and his tackling has been mostly horrendous. That is a bad combination to try to change overnight. -- James WalkerNew England PatriotsBig slide: Cornerback Justin ColemanColeman, the Patriots No. 3 corner, struggled in the second half of the teams win over the Dolphins in Week 2 (he bit on an out-and-up route by Kenny Stills on a 24-yard touchdown) and then was replaced in the role by top 2016 draft pick Cyrus Jones the following week. The Patriots didnt draft Jones (second round, 60th overall) to be buried on the depth chart, so it could be difficult for Coleman to regain his spot. -- Mike ReissNew York JetsSmall slump: Wide receiver Brandon MarshallMarshall, still looking for his first touchdown, is mired in his longest scoring drought since 2014. In fact, he has only one red-zone reception on seven targets -- and his frustration is building. Hes playing with a mild knee sprain, so that could be part of it. Marshall is 32, but its too early to call this a slide. For now, well say slump. -- Rich CiminiAFC NORTHBaltimore RavensBig slide: Wide receiver Kamar AikenIn three games, he has three catches for 19 yards. This comes after he was the Ravens leading receiver in 2015. Aiken finished last season with 75 catches and five touchdowns. But he?has fallen to fifth on the depth chart behind a free-agent addition (Mike Wallace), two players returning from injury (Steve Smith Sr. and Breshad Perriman) and a rookie (Chris Moore). Unless there is a run of injuries at receiver like last season, Aiken isnt going to get to half of his catch total from 2015. -- Jamison HensleyCincinnati BengalsSmall slump: Defensive tackle Geno AtkinsAfter starting the season with a sack and three tackles for loss against the Jets, Atkins has been relatively quiet. Although he hasnt played badly by any means, he hasnt been the disruptive force he usually is, and that might be a contributing factor for a slow start to the teams pass rush, which has generated only four sacks. That wont last forever. At his best, Atkins is one of the top players at his position, and he will make a big difference for the Bengals in games down the road. -- Katherine TerrellCleveland BrownsBig slide: Cornerback Tramon WilliamsWilliams coverage skills do not seem to be what they once were. In Miami, Williams was beat in coverage on a Jarvis Landry touchdown and missed a tackle on a Damien Williams touchdown catch. According to Pro Football Focus, quarterbacks are 12-for-14 passing for 147 yards with three TDs throwing toward Williams -- a rating of 150.0. When hes in the slot, quarterbacks have a rating of 153.8. From 2007 to 13, Williams never allowed a passer rating higher than 90, per PFF. At 33, Williams might have reached the point where age is catching up to him. -- Pat McManamonPittsburgh SteelersBig slide: Wide receiver Markus WheatonWheaton missed significant time in the preseason, and his 2016 debut couldnt have gone worse, dropping a touchdown pass and failing to make at least two other contested plays. Perhaps Wheaton will respond -- hes eager to -- but with running back?LeVeon Bell returning and young receivers Eli Rogers and Sammie Coates becoming key pieces to the offense, Wheatons role is uncertain. The Steelers have made clear they will roll with the hot hand at the receiver spot opposite Antonio Brown, which doesnt favor Wheaton at the moment. -- Jeremy FowlerAFC SOUTHHouston TexansBig slide: Wide receiver Jaelen StrongAfter Strongs disappointing rookie season, he came into training camp as one of the most improved players, according to coach Bill OBrien. Through three games, however, Strong doesnt have a defined role in the offense, and has only one catch for 15 yards. He has been targeted by quarterback Brock Osweiler?only five times. OBrien said because the Texans are using receivers?DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller?often, as well as running back Lamar Miller in the passing game, it has been tough to get Strong targets. Jaelen has to do some things better to continue to have the ball thrown to him, OBrien said after Thursday nights shutout loss to the Patriots. If Fuller continues his?strong season, it might be hard for Strong to get targets, so this slide could continue. -- Sarah BarshopIndianapolis ColtsBig slide: Outside linebacker Robert MathisOne of the reasons why the Colts didnt pursue a pass-rusher during the offseason was because they felt as if they would be fine in that area based on how Mathis ended the 2015 season: three sacks in the final three games. So much for that optimism because the 35-year-old Mathis has yet to register a sack and has only four tackles through the first three games. And thats why its not surprising the Colts have only four sacks on the season. -- Mike WellsJacksonville JaguarsBig slide: Quarterback Blake BortlesBortles has had a rough start. He has turned the ball over seven times (six interceptions), has held onto the ball too long, is hesitant with reads, is forcing throws, his mechanics are off, and generally looks uncomfortable. He has not been able to get into a rhythm, either. Thats partly because the Jaguars cant run the ball (55.0 yards per game) so the offense rests completely on his shoulders. Its also because teams are playing a lot of Cover 2, which prevents the Jaguars from going downfield to wide receiver?Allen Robinson. Bortles isnt a West Coast QB. Hes better throwing downfield and getting chunk plays, and the Jaguars arent doing that. These issues wont go away overnight so while he might eventually come out of it, it could take all season. -- Mike DiRoccoTennessee TitansSmall slump: Quarterback Marcus MariotaMariota threw nearly two touchdown passes for every interception as a rookie, but hes at 1:1 so far this season. The Titans are forcing the issue running the ball, which puts him under center and running a lot of play action. What he does best as a passer, through, is run a no-huddle offense out of the shotgun. I dont think the Titans are putting him in enough favorable situations, and he?has made some poor choices throwing the ball. He also has not resolved his first-year ball security issues, as he has lost two fumbles. But at this early stage and coming off only his 15th NFL game, it registers as a slump, not a big slide. -- Paul KuharskyAFC WESTDenver BroncosSmall slump: Kicker Brandon McManusMcManus has a new holder?and?long snapper,?so perhaps it shouldnt be a shocker that through training camp, the preseason and in the seasons early going, there have been some bobbles. McManus missed three field goals attempts in the preseason and has missed one already in the Broncos first three games of the regular season. He also had an extra point attempt blocked Sunday in Cincinnati. The 6-foot-8 Margus Hunt got plenty of penetration on the play, but the kick still didnt seem to have McManus usual lift on it. McManus was a stone-cold lock last season, and the Broncos?need him at his best again.?-- Jeff LegwoldKansas City ChiefsBig slide: Wide receiver Albert WilsonWilson looks like a bad fit in the Chiefs offense. He lost his starting job to Chris Conley,?isnt getting open and isnt getting the ball as their third receiver. He has only five catches for 12 yards. The Chiefs have other, better receiving options than Wilson, so its difficult to see how things will get much better for him. -- Adam TeicherOakland RaidersSmall slump: Defensive end/outside linebacker Khalil MackMack, who made history last season by being the first player selected first-team All-Pro at two positions in the same season and racked up?15 sacks, is sackless through three games. Teams have been double-teaming him and chip-blocking him, but he seems to be taking especially wide angles to the quarterback, to no avail. Hell get his numbers, coach Jack Del Rio insisted. Theres more to playing in football than getting sacks, and theres more that hes involved in. Hes directly involved in everything that were doing and hes a fine football player and hes busting his butt and doing a nice job for us. ... I dont want him to start pressing for numbers. Its not about numbers. Its about us making the plays we need to make to win games. OK, then. Slump, it is. -- Paul GutierrezSan Diego ChargersSmall slump: Tight end Antonio GatesGates has only six receptions for 35 yards and a toucchdown this season. Under Armour Clearance Sale. He missed last weeks game against the Colts because of a lingering hamstring issue. Over the last five years, however, Gates has averaged 63 catches for 728 yards and seven touchdowns per season. If he can stay healthy, Gates should reach those numbers again in 2016. -- Eric D. WilliamsNFC EASTDallas CowboysSmall slump: Wide receiver Terrance WilliamsEven when things go well for Williams, bad things happen. A 47-yard reception was turned into a fumble after he had the ball swiped away from behind last week against Chicago. In the season opener, he failed to get out of bounds in the final seconds. Williams is in a contract year and could be pressing, but the Cowboys could need him to make big plays if Dez Bryants knee injury limits Bryants effectiveness. -- Todd ArcherNew York GiantsSmall slump: Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.It has been three games and Beckham hasnt reached the end zone yet. For most players, that is no big deal. For Beckham, its eye-opening. He scored 25 touchdowns in his first 27 career games over his first two professional seasons. Its only a matter of time before he gets another TD, however. Hes still averaging 10 targets per game and is on pace for almost 1,500 yards receiving. He also has come close on multiple occasions. The touchdowns will come. -- Jordan RaananPhiladelphia EaglesSmall slump: Wide receiver Josh HuffHuff has five catches for 19 yards on nine targets through three games. Coach Doug Pederson is trying to get the ball into Huffs hands near the line of scrimmage in the hopes that he can generate some explosive plays. Huff is bound to break a few over the course of the season, but expect the output to be up and down. -- Tim McManusWashington RedskinsSmall slump: Tight end Jordan ReedReed hasnt caught a touchdown pass yet after grabbing 11 last season, including 10 in the red zone. He still has caught 16 passes, so its a matter of time before he scores again, and Sundays opponent, Cleveland, ranks 28th in yards allowed per game to tight ends. Teams have focused hard on Reed in the red zone, but he will break through soon. -- John KeimNFC NORTHChicago BearsBig slide: Running back Jeremy LangfordThe beginning of Langfords sophomore season is troubling. Langford, who burst onto the scene with 816 all-purpose yards as a rookie last year, has averaged only 3.7 yards per carry in 31 rushing attempts and has just five receptions for 27 yards. In another unfortunate development, Langford is now expected to miss four-to-six weeks because of a right ankle sprain. Its not exactly what Bears management envisioned when Matt Forte left via free agency. -- Jeff DickersonDetroit LionsSmall slump: Wide receiver Golden TateIt has been a slow start to the 2016 season for Tate. He has caught 13 passes for 94 yards and has his fewest yards per catch of his career (7.2 yards) and the lowest yards-after-catch?average since 2011 (4.9 yards). Those numbers should improve as the season goes on and?Marvin Jones picks up more attention as a No. 1 receiver. That should open up lanes for Tate to break tackles easier and turn his short receptions into longer gains. It could come as soon as Sunday against Chicago. -- Michael RothsteinGreen Bay PackersBig slide: Running back James StarksStarks set a career-high with 601 yards rushing last season while splitting the job with Eddie Lacy. This year, he has 9 yards on 12 carries -- plus three catches for 31 yards -- through three games. How can a player go through such a drastic change in one offseason? Well, Starks is 30 years old, practically ancient for an NFL running back these days, and players -- regardless of position -- can lose it overnight. Its why some coaches and general managers subscribe to the theory that its better to get rid of a player too early than too late. But the Packers signed Starks to a two-year, $6 million contract this offseason. Maybe he will come around if he gets more opportunities, but at this point it looks as if hes on the decline. -- Rob DemovskyMinnesota VikingsBig slide: Wide receiver Charles JohnsonHe appeared to be on the verge of a strong comeback season following his recovery from the broken rib that plagued him last year. Johnson clicked with Teddy Bridgewater in the preseason but has only three catches from Shaun Hill and Sam Bradford. He hasnt clicked with either quarterback, and with Bridgewater out for the season, Johnson could be looking at a slide when he doesnt have the time to build a rapport with them. -- Ben GoesslingNFC SOUTHAtlanta FalconsSmall slump: Wide receiver Julio JonesJones had only one catch for 16 yards on four targets in Monday nights win over the Saints, leaving fans to wonder if Jones was still bothered by a calf injury and, in turn, just used as a decoy. Well, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Jones was fine and should have a heavier load in practice than he did leading into the Saints game. Whether hes 100 percent or not, dont expect one-catch games to become a trend for Jones. Hes too dominant even when he draws added coverage, and he still leads the Falcons with 188 receiving yards despite the off night. -- Vaughn McClureCarolina PanthersSmall slump: Wide receiver Devin FunchessHe has only three catches for 28 yards and a touchdown in his first three games. He had a huge drop in Sundays loss to Minnesota. Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn said he wasnt concerned about Funchess. But Funchess started slow last season, then came on strong toward the end. He had seven catches for 120 yards and a touchdown in the regular-season finale. Perhaps hes just adjusting to having Kelvin Benjamin back.-- David NewtonNew Orleans SaintsBig slide: Safety Jairus ByrdIm picking on Byrd for a few reasons here as a representative for the entire defenses struggles. For one thing, he is one of the few starters who has actually been healthy enough to play every game this season. For another, he is supposed to be one of the Saints biggest playmakers, but he still has zero takeaways and zero passes defensed. Byrd and the secondary have done a good job of preventing superstar receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Julio Jones from hurting them. But the rest of the Falcons offense roamed free in the open field in Monday nights loss to the Falcons. Things should get a little better when the secondary gets healthier -- but its hard to predict that Byrd will ever return to the Pro Bowl form of his past. -- Mike TriplettTampa Bay BuccaneersBig slide: Wide receiver Vincent JacksonJackson has mustered only nine catches for 99 receiving yards this season -- he has had more than that in single games in years past -- and hes fifth on the team in receptions. Aside from stats, though, he just doesnt look the part. He has become an afterthought in the Bucs offense. Hes not making those leaping catches were used to seeing, even on off-target throws, which he used to be able to do because of his elite?athleticism. He said he still feels like hes playing at a very high level, but its not looking that way. -- Jenna LaineNFC WESTArizona CardinalsSmall slump: Wide receiver John BrownHe hasnt been the John Brown of old so far this season. He has only eight catches for 92 yards and no touchdowns. Compare that to last season, when Brown had 12 catches for 153 yards and a touchdown through the first three games, and its clear the?concussion he?suffered in training camp that kept him out about a month has affected him. -- Josh WeinfussLos Angeles RamsBig slide: Running back Todd GurleyThis has nothing to do with Gurley the runner and everything to do with the game plan against him. Gurley has failed to reach 100 yards in 10 of his last 11 games because opposing defenses arent worried about the Rams beating them through the air. There will be times, like Sunday, when the Rams take advantage of that in the passing game. And there will be times, probably very soon, when Gurley manages big games despite a loaded box. But defenses probably wont shift their focus. Gurley will always deal with a lot of attention so long as the dynamics of his offense remain unchanged. It is what it is. -- Alden GonzalezSan Francisco 49ersBig slide: Quarterback Blaine GabbertGabbert offered some hope that he could turn into a serviceable NFL starter at the end of last season when he posted a solid 87.1 passer rating over the final seven weeks. But that hope has mostly been erased the first three weeks of this season as he currently sits 30th in the NFL in passer rating (68.6), 27th in passing yards (532) and 32nd in yards per attempt (5.54). In fairness, Gabbert has faced top-notch defenses early this season, but those numbers fall in line with most of his NFL seasons and the schedule doesnt get much easier. -- Nick WagonerSeattle SeahawksBig slide: Running back Thomas RawlsA couple of weeks ago, it looked as if Rawls was in position to take over as the Seahawks starting running back, but now its unclear when hell return to the field. Rawls has a little crack in his fibula, coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week, and hell be out for a minimum of a few weeks. Rawls was already coming off offseason ankle surgery, and he totaled only 25 yards on 19 carries through the first two games. Asked if the new issue could land Rawls on injured reserve, Carroll said, Not at this point. The Seahawks are holding out hope that Rawls can get healthy and contribute later in the season, but thats far from a certainty the way things stand right now. -- Sheil Kapadia Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys' ' '
CHASKA, Minn. Air Jordan Retro For Sale . -- Capsules of Saturdays matches at the Ryder Cup:FOURSOMESRory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters, Europe, def. Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson, United States, 4 and 2.Fowler rolled in a 25-foot putt on the opening hole, and when the cheers subsided, Pieters matched him from 20 feet. That set the tone, and Europe was more than up to the task. McIlroy made birdie on No. 2, and Europe took advantage of Fowler mistakes on the next two holes. The Americans had momentum when Mickelson made a 60-foot par putt to halve No. 8, won No. 9 when McIlroy missed a short putt, and Mickelson made a birdie on the 10th. Fowler missed big putts, however, and Pieters delivered a late birdie to regain command.Brandt Snedeker and Brooks Koepka, United States, def. Henrik Stenson and Matt Fitzpatrick, Europe, 3 and 2.Snedeker and Koepka built an early 2-up lead on European mistakes, and but they squared the match through 11 holes. The Americans took over from there, particularly Snedeker and his putting. They made four straight birdies to close out the match. Fitzpatrick made a 20-foot birdie putt on the 14th, only for Snedeker to made a 10-footer to halve the hole. The Americans went to 2 up with another birdie on the 15th, and Fitzpatrick hit into the water trying to reach the green on the par-5 16th.Justin Rose and Chris Wood, Europe, def. Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson, United States, 1 up.Europe never trailed, though it also threw a match away at the end. Johnson, typically a reliable putter, missed a short par putt on the 13th hole as the Americans fell 3 down with five holes to play. Walker birdied the next hole to cut the deficit to 2 down. Europe was 2 up on the par-5 16th and the Americans had to lay up. Rose went for the green from 250 yards and put it in the water. The Americans had a chance to get a half point, but Johnson caught a flyer out of the rough on No. 18 and went long.Sergio Garcia and Rafa Cabrera Bello, Europe, halved with Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, United States.Spieth and Reed never looked better, making five birdies in seven holes, an astounding score for alternate shot. They were 3 up through seven holes, and when Garcia missed a 2-foot putt on the 11th, the Americans were 4 up with seven holes to play. Cabrera Bello halved the 12th with a birdie, and it was a big putt. The Americans began making mistakes, the Spaniards made birdies and they won four of the next five holes to square the match. On the 18th, Spieth missed the fairway, Reed missed the green, and Reed had to make a 5-foot par putt just to earn a half-point in a match the Americans thought they had won all along.FOURBALLSRory McIlroy and Thomas Pieters, Europe, def. Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, United States, 3 and 1.McIlroy and Pieters played 49 holes in three matches. Not only did they never trail, the matches were level after only four of those holes. They were unstoppable in this match, with Pieters giving them a 2-up lead when he drove the fifth green and holed the eagle putt. The turning point came on the par-3 eighth when Johnson and Koepka three-putted for bogey, and then McIlroy hit one stiff on the ninth for birdie to go 4 up. Johnson made a pair of birdies to cut the deficit to 2 down after 12, but Pieters answered with a birdie. Europe combined to go 11 under through 17 holes.J.B. Holmes and Ryan Moore, United States, def. Danny Willett and Lee Westwood, Europe, 1 up.The match that got the least amount of attention proved to be the most pivotal. Europe never trailed for 16 holes, though it never led by more than 1 hole. Holmes squared the match with a birdie on the 13th and it was all square going to the par-3 17th when Europe gave it away with a bogey. Willett and Westwood appeared to bounce back on the 18th and were poised for a half with Willet facing an 8-foot birdie putt and Westwood stuffing his shot into 2 feet. Willett missed, and then Westwood shockingly shoved his short birdie putt that would have given Europe a halve.Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar, United States, def. Martin Kaymer and Sergio Garcia, Europe, 4 and 3.Kuchar opened with two birdies to halve the holes, and the Americans were 1 up at the turn. Mickelson made another big birdie, and did a little shimmy, on the 10th hole, and then came a wild exchange. Garcia holed a 40-foot birdie putt on the 12th to cut the deficit to 1 down, only for Kuchar to respond with a 50-foot birdie putt on the next hole to restore the lead. Mickelson took it from there with a wedge to 5 feet for birdie on the 14th. Garcia kept the match alive with a birdie on the 16th, and a clutch birdie on the 17th. Mickelson, however, made a 4-foot birdie on the 17th to close it out.Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth, United States, def. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, Europe,Stenson opened with a birdie and Europe was 1 up through four holes when the Patrick Reed show began. He made birdie on No. 5 to square the match. He holed a wedge for eagle to give the Americans their first lead. He followed with two more birdies for a 3-up lead, and the Americans were on their way. Stenson and Rose made consecutive birdies on the 12th and 13th holes to cut the deficit to 1 down, and for a moment it looked as the Reed and Spieth might let another lead slip away. Reed, however, birdied the next two holes to regain control. Jordan Shoes . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. Jordan Shoes Retro . The Dane followed up his first European Tour title last weekend with eight birdies and just a single dropped shot on Thursday for a one-stroke advantage over South Africas Allan Versfeld and Portugals Ricardo Santos. . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Wholesale Air Max 90 2018 . -- Alex Smith squirmed out of the pile in the end zone, got to his feet and let out a roar.All it took was the largest comeback in the 56-year history of the Kansas City Chiefs for the stoic quarterback with the California cool to finally let some emotion show.Smith threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns to rally his team from a three-touchdown hole, then scored on third-and-goal on the first possession of overtime for a heart-stopping 33-27 victory over the San Diego Chargers in their season opener Sunday.Lot of emotion at the end of the game, Smith said with a smile.The Chiefs trailed 24-3 in the second half before mounting their charge, and it really kicked into gear when Smith hit Jeremy Maclin with a back-shoulder fade to get within 27-17 with 9 minutes to go.Cairo Santos added a 33-yard field goal a few minutes later. Then, after forcing a three-and-out, Spencer Ware finished a four-play drive with a touchdown plunge to knot the game at 27.It took Kansas City 10 plays to march 75 yards in overtime. Smith finished it with his plunge from the 2-yard line, keeping the ball rather than pitch when the smallest of creases opened.By the time Smith reached his feet, the Chiefs had flooded onto the field to celebrate.Youre going to have games like this that show your character, show your grit, coach Andy Reid said. Im proud of the way they handled it. They had confidence in each other.Philip Rivers threw for 243 yards and a touchdown, and Melvin Gordon scored the first two TDs of his career. But the Chargers were unable to keep any drives going in the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs were charging to their NFL-leading 11th consecutive regular-season victory.You just cant let them back in. Weve got to close it, Chargers offensive tackle Joe Barksdale said. Everybody with eyes who saw the game has got to know, we have to close it. Its not acceptable to be up by 24-3 and lose the game. We know that.The collapse came after San Diego wide receiver Keenan Allen left in the second quarter with what appeared to be a serious knee injury. He already had six catches for 63 yards.Even without Allen, the retooled Chargers and their improved offensive line managed to build a 21-3 halftime lead. And it looked as if their eight-game skid against AFC West rivals would finally end.That all changed once the fourth quarter began.Josh Lambo missed a 54-yard field goal with San Diego leading 27-10, and the momentum swung toward Kansas City. Smith calmly completed six passes and marched his team 56 yards to the end zone, Santos hit his field goal and Ware his touchdown run, and the game was headed to overtime.The Chiefs carried their newfound momentum all the way to the finish.BLACK POWERChiefs cornerback Marcus Peters held a black-gloved fist aloft during the national anthem in a salute reminiscent of Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. It was his way of standing beside 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernicks stance on social injustice.Im supporting Colin and what hes doing, as far as raising awareness with the justice system, said Peters, who grew up in Oakland, California. Coach said it was OK if I wanted to express my thoughts about what I wanted to do, so I just expressed it.Peters did link his left arm with his teammates as country singer Trace Adkins performed the anthem. The Chiefs said in a statement they decided to lock arms in a show of solidarity.MISSING NAMESThe Chiefs played without star pass rusher Justin Houston , who could be out until November as he recovers from ACL surgery in February. The Chargers were without defensive end Joey Bosa, the third pick in Aprils draft, who remained on the exempt list after a lengthy holdout.RUNNING IT: Ware finished with 70 yards rushing and had seven catches for 129 yards, giving the Chiefs a big boost without Jamaal Charles. The four-time Pro Bowl running back is still recovering from surgery last season to repair his ACL and was inactive Sunday.INJURY REPORTAllen missed the final eight games last season with a lacerated kidney , and now could be out the rest of this season. He never put weight on his right knee after going down Sunday.There is speculation about an ACL, coach Mike McCoy said, but well run tests when we get back home.Chiefs linebacker Sam Barrington left in the second half with a hamstring injury.---AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Caom Air Max 90 2018 .

It proves something to me, that I can hang in rallies like that.The heat advisory was in effect, but neither player used the allowed break.

She recently entered the Connecticut Open as a wild card and lost in the first round of a tournament shes won four times.At this point, Im just happy when Im healthy, she said. Thats been my focus this year, to try and get back to healthy and 100 percent body-wise. Its been a struggle, but I feel like Im there now.Wozniacki lives in New York part-time and has the comforts of home during the final major of the year.It just feels so good to be able to stay at home and cook and have chilled nights, she said.Townsend, who has a 34-16 singles record, won her qualifying matches last week to get into the main field at the U.S. Open. She was really happy to play the first match on the new court.I didnt realize how big it was until people started to come in and it started to get a little more packed, Townsend said. People started cheering. I was in awe. Its such a beautiful stadium.While Townsend reached the third round of the French Open in 2014 -- her best finish at a major -- shes content to learn from this experience on a big stage.I cant really beat myself up too much, Townsend said. Moments like these where I have played and left my heart out there -- and I know I could have done things better -- it just drives me more to want to get out on the court and fix it, just try and do better.

Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. For the first week-plus of the Rio 2016 Olympic boxing tournament, the officiating went largely unnoticed because there were no major controversies, a change from what usually occurs every four years.But then things changed this week with three extremely controversial decisions in quick succession, after which the International Boxing Association (AIBA), the organization that runs amateur boxing, announced on Wednesday that it was removing an undisclosed number of referees and judges from the Olympics for failing to perform competently.AIBA did not announce the names of the judges or referees it was removing and it also said the results of the controversial bouts will stand.Following recent judging decisions and after carrying out a thorough examination by the relevant Commission, AIBA has decided to take immediate and appropriate action, AIBA said in a statement. Since the beginning of the Olympic Games, AIBA has conducted 239 bouts. The AIBA R&J [referees and judges] Commission has reviewed all decisions and determined that less than a handful of the decisions were not at the level expected and consequently it has been decided in accordance with the AIBA R&J evaluation committee that the concerned referees and judges will no longer officiate at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In accordance with AIBA Rules the result of all the bouts will stand.Three bouts in particular caused near-universal outrage because the scoring did not seem to match the reality of the action in the ring.Russian heavyweight Evgeny Tishchenko was awarded a unanimous three-round decision, 29-28 on all three judges scorecards, in the gold medal match against Kazakhstans Vassiliy Levit on Monday in a fight in which Levit appeared to hurt, dominate and batter Tishchenko around the ring only to lose. The judges assigned to that fight were Kheira Sidi Yakoub, Armando Carbonell Alvarado and Michael Gallagher.On Tuesday, there were two more highly controversial results.In the light welterweight quarterfinals, Uzbekistans Fazliddin Gaibnararov was awarded a split decision against American Gary Antuanne Russell. Judges Roland Juhasz and Kestutis Bagdanavicius each scored the bout 29-28 for Gaibnararov, and judge Enrico Licini scored it 29-28 for Russell. Russell, however, appeared to dominate an opponent who ran for much of the fight and was so unwilling to engage that he was repeatedly warned by the referee that he needed to fight. Cheap Draymond Green Jersey. Also, Russias Vladimir Nikitin was awarded a unanimous decision -- 29-28 on all three scorecards -- against Irelands Michael Conlan in the bantamweight quarterfinals despite obvious dominance by Conlan.Conlan was enraged by the decision -- as was the booing crowd -- that he spun around the ring and flipped double middle fingers to the judges, Jones Kennedy Silva do Rosario, Udeni Talik Bandara Kiridena and Mariusz Gorny, after the shocking scores were announced.Conlan later accused Russian president Vladimir Putin of paying off the judges, tweeting at him, Hey Vlad Putin, how much did they charge you bro??AIBA changed the scoring method for the Rio Olympics from the computerized scoring that essentially counted punches to the same 10-point must-system used in professional boxing. It also removed head gear from the male fighters. Both moves were part of an effort to make the bouts more fan friendly, but while the fights have generally been more entertaining the judging has still become an issue.AIBA will not shy away from its responsibilities and is fully committed to a zero tolerance policy towards fair play in boxing, always acting in the boxers utmost interest, AIBA said in its statement. The Olympic Games represent the pinnacle of all sports and Boxing has been part of this since 1904. It is essential AIBA stands to the values of respect, sportsmanship, excellence and remains committed to a fair and transparent sport.With regard to corruption, we would like to strongly restate that unless tangible proof is put forward, not rumors, we will continue to use any means, including legal or disciplinary actions to protect our sport and its R&J community whose integrity is constantly put into question. The organization will not be deterred by subjective judgments made by discontented parties. We welcome all parties to come forward and provide evidence in order to take appropriate and immediate action.
