TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Puma Basket Heart Hvid . -- Even Nick Saban sometimes has to deliver an I told you so to his team, along with a few other choice words.No. 1 Alabamas slow-starting 31-3 victory over FCS team Chattanooga on Saturday night was one of those times.Jalen Hurts passed for three touchdowns and rushed for 68 yards, but the Crimson Tide (11-0) spotted the Mocs (8-3) the games first three points and didnt really shake them until late in the third quarter. The defense had a more Bama-like performance, and hasnt given up a touchdown in 13 quarters.Sabans halftime message after a week of trying to get his players to take Chattanooga seriously: I said, `Do you believe me now?Id been telling them all week, Saban said. The rest wed better bleep out.Hurts was 15 of 21 for 136 yards a week after torching Mississippi State for 347 yards. He had a 47-yard TD pass to Calvin Ridley and added two 1-yarders to Gehrig Dieter, including one in the final minutes that made the score look a little closer to what most expected. Hurts set Alabamas single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback.Damien Harris rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown and Ridley gained 94 yards on seven catches.Alabama wide receiver ArDarius Stewart did not play in the game, and Saban indicated he was held out because sometimes we have players that have a violation of our standard of behavior.It was a milestone win for Saban, whose 41-5 record as the No. 1 team gives him the most of any coach. He had been tied with Ohio States Woody Hayes (40-4-1) and Florida States Bobby Bowden (40-5).This one came after a string of more impressive performances against Southeastern Conference opponents.I worried about it all week long, Saban said. When youre playing conference games every week and youre playing big games every week, its really hard to get guys not to have a letdown.Chattanoogas first-quarter field goal put Alabama behind for the first time since Kentucky scored the first three points on Oct. 1. The Mocs trailed just 14-3 until deep into the third quarter before Harris raced 25 yards for a touchdown.Alejandro Bennifield completed 16 of 21 passes for 106 yards for the Mocs, who sacked Hurts three times.I remember playing them here in 2013 and barely recording a first down, Chattanooga coach Russ Huesman said. They have got a really good football team, and they probably slept walked coming into this game. I am not trying to think that they were all jacked up to play Chattanooga, but our guys were pretty excited to play, and I am awful proud of them.Alabama wasnt exactly pushing the Mocs around early. Chattanooga stopped two runs from the 1-yard line in the second quarter before Hurts rolled right on fourth down and hit Dieter in the end zone for a 14-3 lead.That was set up by a muffed punt at the 9.I guess we just underestimated them, Ridley said.THE TAKEAWAYChattanooga: Was almost even in total yards with Alabama midway through the third quarter. Didnt allow a sack to a defense that came in with the most in the nation.Alabama: It was probably the least impressive performance of the season, considering what `Bama is expected to do to FCS teams. Left tackle Cam Robinson and backup Korren Kirven, who started at right guard, both left late with shoulder injuries. Saban expects them to be able to play in the Iron Bowl.POLL IMPLICATIONSChattanooga: Came in ranked No. 11 in the FCS coaches poll and shouldnt be judged much for this one.Alabama: Still a lock to be No. 1 in the AP poll and playoff rankings, especially with teams behind Tide struggling.UP NEXTChattanooga: Finished the regular season and awaits its playoff fate.Alabama: Hosts Auburn in the Iron Bowl seeking a third straight win over its in-state rival.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Puma By Rihanna Creeper Danmark . PETERSBURG, Fla. Puma Basket Heart Sort . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. http://www.rihannacreepersdk.com/basket-puma-heart-basket-sneakers.html . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles bashed their way into first place before the All-Star break, hitting a major league leading 137 homers while averaging more than five runs per game.Baltimore also played exceptionally well defensively and received ample contributions from the back end of the bullpen, most notably All-Star relievers Brad Brach and Zach Britton.The teams strengths were as obvious as its most glaring weakness: the starting rotation.Chris Tillmans 12-2 record was offset by spotty performances from every other starter. Ubaldo Jimenez went 5-9 with a 7.38 ERA, Kevin Gausman was 1-6 and Yovani Gallardo has yet to reach a groove after spending nearly two months on the disabled list. Mike Wright and Tyler Wilson were shuffled back and forth from the minors, doing little to warrant an extended stay in Baltimore.I think I can speak on behalf of all of us -- we can definitely do better, Gausman said.If the Orioles are to complete their run to the AL East title and flourish in the postseason, they can either fix the problem or hope to win in spite of it.Its worked out so far, said Chris Davis, whose 22 homers ranks second on the team behind Mark Trumbos major-league best 28. Obviously at some point you have to start pitching a little bit better out of the starting rotation, but for the most part weve been able to pick them up with our bats.The Orioles have power and an air-tight infield. Britton has converted every one of his 27 save opportunities. But that one missing element could upend Baltimores bid to outlast Boston and Toronto in the talent-laden division.Obviously, the biggest thing for us going forward is pitching, Britton said. Very rarely do teams get through the postseason just on hitting. Were going to have to find a way to pitch a little bit better.Or, executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette can hunt down another viable starter before the non-waiver trade deadline.Two years ago, Duquette shored up the bullpen by getting standout reliever Andrew Miller, proving that if a deal needs to be made he wont hesitate to swap potential big leaguers for immediate help. Puma Basket Heart Patent. .They know what we need and we know what we need. Its just a matter of getting it done, Orioles third baseman Manny Machado said. Ive got faith in the front office. If we need somebody, theyre going to go out and get them.Manager Buck Showalter is willing to move forward without outside assistance.Help is right here this group. We are not coveting other peoples players, Showalter insisted. Every answer we need to have is in here.Baltimore went 51-36 before the break, so maybe Showalter has a point.The bottom line to this whole thing is to score one more run than the other team, even if its 7-6, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Where you might look at their rotation and see guys who may be struggling a little bit, theyre always in a game because of their ability to hit the ball out of the park. And when they do get a lead, theyve got a pen that is even deeper than just the two guys on the back end.The bullpen lacks a proven left-hander, but the relief corps should improve later this month when setup man Darren ODay gets off the disabled list following a right hamstring strain.If Trumbo, Davis, Machado and catcher Matt Wieters continue to whack the ball, the efficiency of the pitching staff might not matter.Not many teams win this way, but the Orioles dont want to hear it.Our guys dont dwell on conventionality. We dont always follow a script, Showalter said. Starters have to go seven innings every night? Who says you do?Baltimore opens the second half Friday night in Tampa Bay before heading to New York for four games against the Yankees. The Orioles were 33-14 at home and 18-22 on the road before the break.Its obvious whats ahead of us, Showalter said. We have a lot of challenges.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti acknowledged Saturday that the results of Novembers U. Rex Burkhead Nebraska Jersey .S. presidential election could weigh heavily on his citys chances of hosting the 2024 Olympics, saying that a victory by Donald Trump could turn off IOC voters.In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Garcetti also said Los Angeles could offer the last best hope for the United States to host the Summer Olympics again before the American people begin tuning out from the games.Garcetti, a 45-year-old Democrat and supporter of Hillary Clinton, is in Brazil to observe the Rio de Janeiro Games and pitch his citys bid to members of the International Olympic Committee. One of the main topics of conversation with IOC delegates has been the U.S. election -- and the prospects of a Trump presidency.I think for some of the IOC members they would say, `Wait a second, can we go to a country like that, where weve heard things that we take offense to? Garcetti said. But I think that gives us even more urgency globally, where we can say, `This is something that is a different strength maybe than the things that youve heard or the things you believe. I think we continue no matter what the outcome of the election is.A new U.S. president will be in office when the IOC selects the 2024 host city in September 2017. Los Angeles, which hosted the Olympics in 1932 and 1984, is competing with Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary.Everything that were going through right now in the United States politically, I dont want us to be a country that turns into itself, said Garcetti, who spoke at the Democratic convention in Philadelphia last month. I think we have to look outward to the world.The IOCs 98 members come from all over the world, and Trumps comments on Mexicans, Muslims and other issues wont encourage them to vote for a U.S. city.They wonder, `Is America going to take this strange turn? Garcetti said. Were there to be an election result that is less international, more inward focused, maybe theres even greater urgency to a bid like this.But even if that doesnt happen, even the threat of that, the talk of that, the idea that we exclude people based on who they are at our borders, gives us urgency to having things like the Olympics underscore who we are and what were about.Los Angeles bid chairman Casey Wasserman said the city will continue to push the bid on its own technical merits.I dont think you can judge a country by who runs for president, he said. I think you should judge a country on who is the president and their beliefs and their policies. And clearly thats something the members will take into account. But thats something I cant control.Los Angeles is seeking to bring the Summer Olympics back to the U.S. for the first time since Atlanta hosted the 1996 Games. The bid follows failed attempts by New York and Chicago for the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, respectively.I dont know if this is the last best hope, but I do think that after a few bids, after a while, there will be real feeling of people tuning out in America, a new generation that isnt connected with the legacy sports, said Garcetti, who attended Rios opening ceremony on Friday night, 32 years after going to the close of the 84 Games as a 13-year-old.Recent American bids have suffered from anti-U.S. sentiment among some members in the European-dominated IOC, and Garcetti said he is working to change that.There may be a general anti-Americanism but once you create a relationship with somebody, it becomes a relationship with Eric and that person, he said. As we get to know each other over time, they realize you cant slap a title, just like `American and a caricature of what that means on anybody.I want to listen, Garcetti said. I dont want to just come in and say, `Were the Americans, we get the most medals, we bring in the sponsorships. That turns people off.He acknowledged there could be a backlash among some IOC members to what they consider U.S. meddling in global sports affairs, including the Justice Department investigation of world soccer body FIFA and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agencys call for a total ban on Russias Olympic team over state-sponsored doping.Ive been very careful to say, `Look, what prosecutors or anti-doping officials do, at least in our country, is completely separate from what a mayor or a city government is about. Were not involved at all.On other issues, Garcetti:- encouraged Rome to remain in the 2024 race despite current opposition from new mayor Virginia Raggi, who says the city has bigger priorities at the moment. Garcetti said he has been in touch with Raggis office to urge Rome to stay in.You can fix your problems first, but that doesnt mean you have to exclude great opportunities like the Olympics, he said.- embraced the five new sports approved by the IOC for the 2020 Tokyo Games -- baseball/softball, surfing, skateboarding, karate and sport climbing. While they have been added for Tokyo only, Garcetti said he would hope they could also be included in Los Angeles.Skateboarding and surfing, those are synonymous with LA, he said. If were lucky enough to win, I would absolutely see us continuing those sports.- confirmed that the new NFL stadium being built for the Los Angeles Rams would be used for the Olympics if the city wins the bid. Rams owner Stan Kroenke is helping to build a new $2.6 billion retractable roof stadium in Inglewood, California, scheduled to be completed in 2019.The new stadium could be considered for hosting the opening and closing ceremonies. The Coliseum would host the track and field competition.Weve not yet defined how well use the stadium but were very excited to use the stadium, Garcetti said. Stand by, but were talking with the Rams, Stan Kroenke, about the best way.--Follow Stephen Wilson on Twitter: www.twitter.com/stevewilsonap.

MIAMI DOLPHINS (6-10)OPEN CAMP: July 29, Davie, FloridaLAST YEAR: For seventh year in row Dolphins failed to finish above . Jeremy Johnson Auburn Jersey .500, triggering yet another round of turnover at top. Coach Joe Philbin and coordinators were fired during season, and general manager Dennis Hickey departed afterward. Quarterback Ryan Tannehills play declined in fourth season, and defense was bad, ranking 28th against run, allowing franchise-record 4,000 net yards passing.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: DE Mario Williams, rookie G Laremy Tunsil, RB Arian Foster, LB Kiko Alonso, CB Bobby Maxwell, S Isa Abdul-Quddus.IMPORTANT LOSSES: DEs Olivier Vernon and Derrick Shelby, CBs Brent Grimes, Brice McCain and Jamar Taylor, RB Lamar Miller, LB Kelvin Sheppard, WRs Rishard Matthews and Greg Jennings.CAMP NEEDS: New coach Adam Gase must find starters at both guard spots to solidify perennially shaky offensive line. Jobs are also open at cornerback, defensive tackle and running back, where Jay Ajayi will compete with newcomer Arian Foster, four-time Pro Bowler who said he has recovered from torn Achilles tendon. DE Cameron Wake will also test surgically repaired Achilles tendon.

Theres almost too much in terms of statistics out there for fantasy players to pore over on a routine basis, and Ive mentioned many times before that with all that data at our fingertips, its pretty easy to make a case both for and against the same players, cherry picking whatever suits your argument at the time.Thats why I like to simplify things a bit and look to shortcuts and single stats that can give you a quick, unbiased snapshot of which players are performing well for fantasy purposes in relation to their peers. Its by no means perfect in predictive accuracy, but it certainly can help you narrow down the waiver wire decision-making process, especially at a time when many fantasy pllayers are participating in leagues where they may not have very many transactions left under league maximums. wholesale jerseys. For starting pitchers, average game score (AGS) has always been a favorite snapshot of mine, especially in points leagues. Game score, created by Bill James, sums up each start in a single number, adding value for batters retired and strikeouts, while deducting points for hits, walks and runs allowed. While its not a one-to-one correlation, taking a look at a pitchers AGS for the season tends to line up pretty well with points league value.

MANCHESTER, England -- Anthony Crollas promoter Eddie Hearn is confident the Briton will get a rematch with Jorge Linares in 2017.Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) lost his WBA world lightweight title to Linares by a unanimous points decision in a fight to decide the best in the division on Saturday.Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) ended a lay-off of nearly a year, due to a fractured right hand that needed surgery, to out-point the Briton 115-114, 117-111 and 115-113 at the Manchester Arena.The Venezuelan also earned the WBC Diamond and Ring magazine belts for going 12 rounds for the first time in his career in a close contest.And Hearn is hopeful that Linares, who stopped Kevin Mitchell in London last year, will return to Britain next year.Sometimes a loss in this sport at the highest level is not the end of the world and Anthony will be back to try and win those belts back in the early part of next year, Hearn said.Jorge Linares will get a lot of money for the rematch and Anthony will be in a bigger fight next time around. Linares experience in the back end of the fight won him the fight.Linares has hurt his hand but I would say February or March for the rematch.Linares was stripped of the WBC version of the world title due to his inactivity earlier this year and another possibility for his next fight would be to fight Montenegros Dejan Zlaticanin (22-0, 15 KOs), who became WBC champion in his absence.But Hearn thinks Linares will opt to fight Crolla next rather than a world title unification fight. Alex Bregman Astros Jersey. Its probably the biggest fight for Linares out there and Gilberto Mendoza [the WBA president] says he will order the rematch anyway, Hearn said.Crollas work rate and energy were not deemed enough by the judges who favoured Linares slick and fast combinations on the counter attack.Crolla was hurt in the sixth round but then had a good spell in the fight before Linares decisively finished strongly in the last three rounds to ensure he got the unanimous decision.At this moment in time I would love a rematch more than any other fight in the division, said Crolla.I felt the fight was going to plan and he caught me with a a great shot in the sixth round. I felt that gave him a bit of belief.Im 29 and Im still learning, Im still trying to better myself. He was very sharp and moved his feet well. I will come back stronger.Britain now has 12 world champions following Crollas loss in his second defence of the WBA belt and he was the fourth British boxer to lose a world title fight in three weeks following Liam Smith [to Saul Alvarez], Kell Brook [to Gennady Golovkin] and Charlie Edwards [to Johnriel Casimero].Rather than it all falling apart I prefer to think British boxers are trying to turn themselves into greats rather than just world champions and youre not going to win all these fights, said Hearn.

Go inside the numbers and matchups that will decide the showdown Wednesday night between the Cubs and Dodgers in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, and then vote for which team will win at the bottom of the page. Marshawn Lynch California Jersey .What we learned in Game 3Rich Hill threw six shutout innings, Jake Arrieta didnt, and now the Cubs date with destiny appears a little less certain than it did after Miguel Montero hit that home run way back in Game 1. The Cubs have played 100 postseason games in their history and this was the first time theyve been shut out in back-to-back games. -- David SchoenfieldInside the pitching matchupWhen John Lackey is on the mound: The veteran righty is making his 22st career postseason start, tied with Whitey Ford for sixth most all time. In his Game 4 start against the Giants in the division series, Lackey struggled with his control, throwing only 39 percent of his pitches in the strike zone, his second-lowest rate in any game this season. He lasted only four innings and 74 pitches, giving up seven hits and three runs.Lackeys stuff remains as good as ever even though he turns 38 in a few days, as he recorded a career-high strikeout rate of 24.1 percent. He comes at batters with a four-seam fastball, slider, curve and occasional changeup. The fastball sits 91-92 that he moves around all quadrants of the strike zone. The slider sits 82-84 with a late break that dives off the outside corner to righties. Thats certainly his go-to wipeout pitch, especially to righties, who hit .122 with a 37 percent strikeout rate against it. Of course, the Dodgers will stack the lineup with lefty swingers, so well see more curveballs and changeups and fewer sliders (although lefties hit just .133 against the slider). --?SchoenfieldWhen Julio Urias is on the mound: The rookie lefty becomes the youngest pitcher to ever start a postseason game at 20 years, 68 days, surpassing Bret Saberhagen, who was 20 years, 175 days when he started for the Royals in the 1984 ALCS.Given his age, the Dodgers monitored his workload carefully, maxing out at 100 pitches in a June start. In his three September starts, he had pitch counts of 89, 78 and 58. Dave Roberts said pitch counts wont be an issue in this game. I think that weve kind of monitored his usage throughout the regular season, but I think right now for me, its not necessarily the pitch count, Roberts said. A lot of it is the stressful innings, too. Its going to be a big game. So if hes throwing the baseball the way we expect, then Im not afraid to push him to help us win a baseball game.Urias, who posted a 2.73 ERA over his final 69 innings, throws an easy 92-93 mph fastball that generated a swing-and-miss rate of 24 percent. He works middle-away to up in the zone to right-handed batters, coming inside (inner third) about 30 percent of the time. He gave up only one home run off his fastball in 202 plate appearances ending with the pitch, so there seems to be some deception here in the delivery. He was known for a great changeup coming up in the minors, but he also throws a slider and curveball. Batters hit .174 against his changeup, but he actually threw his curve a little more often even though batters hit .375/.382/.594 against it. Hell use the slider to come inside to right-handed batters.Given the repertoire, confidence and calmness on the mound, everyone thinks hes a future No. 1 given refinement and health. -- SchoenfieldPlayer in the spotlightAnthony Rizzo. Or pick the Cubs hitter of your choice. Rizzo got his second hit of the postseason, but it was a broken-bat dribbler off Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning of a 6-0 game. The Cubs are hitting .152 against left-handers in the playoffs -- granted, theyve faced Madison Bumgarner, Clayton Kershaw and Hill, maybe the three best lefties in the league -- but .152 is .152. Wheres the offense? -- SchoenfieldDid you know ...According to Elias Sports Bureau, the matchup between Lackey and Urías will be the fifth-largest age gap between opposing starters during a postseason game (17 years, 294 days).It trails matchups between:Jamie Moyer and Ubaldo Jimenez -- Oct. 6, 2007 (21 years, 65 days)Jamie Moyer and Matt Garza -- Oct. 25, 2008 (21 years, 8 days)Dennis Martinez and Bob Wolcott -- Oct. 10, 1995 (19 years, 117 days)Phil Niekro and John Stuper -- Oct. 9, 1982 (18 years, 38 days)--?ESPN Stats & InfoWhat will decide the game Wednesday nightThe Dodgers have a home run in eight straight postseason games, one of five teams with a streak that long in a single postseason in history. If Lackey wants to keep them from continuing that streak, hell have to stay on the outer third of the plate, a target location he has been attacking all season.Lackey pitch location, 2016 regular season:-- Outer third or away, 51.3 percent-- Inner third or inside, 26.2 percent-- Middle third, 22.4 percentThe Dodgers hit 36 home runs and slugged .328 against pitches away, and they hit 66 home runs and slugged .420 against pitches inside. ?--?ESPN Stats & InfoChoosing sides: Who will win??Hes 20, a lefty, Mexican, starting in the playoffs -- I mean, isnt the rise of Urias like Fernandomania all over again? Dont know if he throws a scroogie or breathes through his eyelids like the lizards of the Galápagos Islands, but hes really good. Still, Urias hasnt thrown much lately and command can be an issue. The Cubs flailing offense cant press, but it needs to give Lackey some support. I suspect the bullpens will loom large in this one. It has been a long time since the Cubs dropped three straight so Im taking them. But I dont feel great about it. -- Bradford DoolittleIt cant continue like this at the plate for the Cubs, can it? Theyve seen Urias twice, which is bound to help them, while Lackey was brought in for games just like these. Somehow, someway the Cubs will prevail and tie the series. -- Jesse Rogers?Hardly anybody predicted it would happen this way, but the Dodgers will carry their momentum to a 3-1 NLCS lead with a victory in Game 4. Two dominating starts by left-handers allowed the Dodgers rally for a series lead after losing Game 1. And guess what? The Dodgers have another lefty on tap in Urias, who might be only 20 years old but had the maturity to put together a 2.73 ERA over his final 69? innings of the season.?-- Doug PadillaWhere the series standsThe unknown is what looms ahead in Game 5. We know Jon Lester will go for the Cubs. But who starts for the Dodgers, Kershaw or Kenta Maeda? That decision might rest on what happens in Game 4. -- Schoenfield Jeff Driskel Florida Jersey . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. Matthew Stafford Georgia Jersey . Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden. The Real Madrid forward has scored 66 goals in 2013, but the last three may be the boost he needs to upstage Messi after FIFA unexpectedly extended the voting period for the Ballon dOr to Nov. http://www.cheapnfljerseyschinawholesaler.us.com/bulldogs-27-nick-chubb-black-limited-stitched-ncaa-jersey-ob-53.html . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. Australian Formula One star Daniel Ricciardo has swapped his racing leathers for farming attire ahead of the 2016 United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.The 27-year-old, who sits third in the drivers championship, visited Nelson Ranch in La Grange where he donned a traditional cowboy hat and learned everything from raking hay to lassoing a cow.Ricciardo says hes no stranger to the outback and admits he enjoys the change of pace.I had a great time. I honestly enjoy a bit of the outback and a few of my mates back homme have farms, Ricciardo said. Deion Sanders Florida State Jersey. Those hay bales are heavy though, much heavier than I expected so I certainly had to put in some effort.Ricciardo has been in ominous form of late finishing on the podium in five of the last seven races, including a drought-breaking win in Malaysia earlier in the month.His best result at the Circuit of the Americas was a third place finish in 2014.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Vans Old Skool Mens . -- Coaches and well-trained players will tell you that every win is worth the same.Theyre wrong.No better examples can be found than the way Seattle, Dallas and Denver won on Sunday. Those victories are the kind that can define a season, catapult you to special things.Most impressive was the Seahawks 31-24 win at Foxborough, a place visitors rarely leave with smiles on their faces. Particularly after settling for three field goals, missing an extra point kick and a dubious 2-point conversion attempt.But in one of the most bone-rattling games imaginable -- look for Earl Thomas hit on Rob Gronkowski for proof -- Seattle re-established its credentials as an opponent to be reckoned with. The Seahawks often come on in the second half of the schedule, and the way they punished the Patriots and also handled the hits they were given in return bodes very well for Pete Carrolls club.It says exactly what our creed is: We fight until we cant fight no more, said safety Kam Chancellor, whose tight coverage on Gronkowski resulted in an incompletion from the Seattle 1 to end New Englands chances. No matter what the circumstances are, we never look back. We keep pushing forward and we keep fighting.Seattle (6-2-1) won on Russell Wilsons arm (348 yards, 124.6 passer rating), Doug Baldwins mitts (three TD catches) and that fierce defense. It won even though Wilson remains almost stationary (for him) in the pocket because of bothersome leg injuries.Its been a tougher year in the sense of obviously, the injuries, and havent faced that (limitation) before, Wilson said. But there was no way I was going to let that stop me. And the mentality was to do whatever I could to play the games, and get ready, And just continue to battle, and continue to have that mulish approach, and continue to stay steadfast.Denver, like Seattle, has had plenty of success recently, albeit with a certain No. 18 at quarterback. It is now 7-3 thanks greatly to its still-staunch defense.And, of course, to a special teams play for the ages.Justin Simmons leaped over the offensive line and blocked a potential go-ahead extra-point kick by Wil Lutz. Will Parks grabbed the loose ball, returning it 84 yards for a defensive 2-point conversion with 1:28 left. The defensive 2-point play was only added to the rules prior to the 2015 season, and this was the first time the winning points came on such a play.Ive never had an ending like that, especially on special teams, DeMarcus Ware said, and hes been in the NFL for nearly 12 seasons. It was just big, a big victory. I mean usually a game ends from the defense because of a forced fumble or interception or something like that. But seeing it happen from special teams, you never see that.The effect it could have, particularly with two rookies combining for such a brilliant and rare play, is immeasurable.The significance of an eight-game winning streak powered by two other kids -- quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott -- is that Dallas is thinking big. After its 35-30 comeback sizzler in Pittsburgh, the Cowboys have earned the right to think as big as, well, Big D itself.Asked if hes been around a team where two rookies have had such a quick impact, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones replied, Not two that are so in sync to where theyre feeding off each other and the team feeding off them. I havent seen that.What the world saw at Heinz Field was the kind of determination and resilience that can lead to championships. Every time the more-veteran Steelers delivered a haymaker -- including a touchdown off a fake spike by Ben Roethlisberger -- Dallas responded.Elliott burst through a defense he said parted like the Red Sea and streaked to the end zone for a 32-yard touchdown to win it with 9 seconds remaining, and it might have been the most impressive act the fourth overall draft pick has delivered. And boy has he been delivering all year for a team that hasnt been a true championship contender for decades.If the Broncos, Cowboys or Seahawks find their way to the Super Bowl, they surely can point to Week 10 as a catalyst.---AP Sports Writer Brett Martel contributed.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Vans Canvas Old Skool .

Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Nine-hundred-and-fifty people walked through the Gabba gates before the first over was bowled.There wasnt the swimming pool, bikini, Hawaiian-shirted, beery-party atmosphere that had set the scene for the first three days of the Test. The eye-watering confetti pattern of the seats, meant to give the illusion of greater numbers but hidden by actual people from day one to three, was now revealed.The fans hadnt paid to enter: why would anyone pay to see a few overs, a couple of Pakistan wickets and a quick victory for the home side?A hundred and eight runs to win. Surely it may as well have been 1008. 100,008. A million and eight.****Asad Shafiq and Yasir Shah start quietly and solidly, Shafiq trying to keep the strike when Mitchell Starc, in particular, is bowling. The countdown is on.A hundred runs to win.A trickle of Pakistan fans, clad in green and bearing flags, have started to arrive. Some are families, cousins passing children around and chattering in Urdu. Others are on their own, or with a mate or two. But they all come to the same place.There is Rohan, from Lahore. He only arrived in Australia a few weeks earlier, here to study in Brisbane. The last time he saw Pakistan play was nine years ago in Karachi, when he was 14 years old.The chanting starts in earnest: Pakistan zindabad! For the players, this must be like playing in the UAE, their home that isnt a home: a huge stadium, virtually empty, echoing with the cries from a small pocket of noisy green loyalty.Yasir, with a top Test score of 30 to his name, crouches and waits as Starc steams in and spears a yorker at his toes. Yasir jams his bat down just in time. Another yorker, another jam.The fans know this is about survival; Bear Grylls should probably be out in the middle. They know Yasir needs all the help he can get. They scream at Starc as he runs in, No ball! No ball! As if they can, by shouting, force his foot to overstep.Josh Hazlewood is next. He bowls wide to Shafiq, who slashes through the covers for four.They jump to their feet. Maybe they dont all really believe yet, truly believe that their team can pull off the most preposterous chase in all of Test history. But they are starting to.Drinks are called. Eight-four runs to win.A family sits in the middle of the small crowd, all in green shirts with their names printed across the back. The father, Faisal. Next to him a young girl picks up a flag. Shes wearing green sunglasses with the Pakistan moon. As she stands on the chair her name becomes visible. Hidayah. Her tiny Mini-Me sister, Mahdiyya, smiles and claps as Hidayah starts the chanting, her young, clear voice ringing around the stands and out to the players in the middle. Pakistan zindabad!Nathan Lyon comes on to bowl. Come on Garry, they cry. Then laugh.Across the ground, a single Australian attempts the Aussie, Aussie, Aussie call. It sounds lonely and a little pathetic, so the Pakistan fans take it up. Theyll cheer for both sets of fans.Yasir almost edges Lyon to Peter Handscomb at short leg. Theres a collective intake of breath so sharp it seems all the air has been sucked out of the Gabba. Yasir safely sweeps the next ball for a single and the air is released. The countdown now comes afterr every run. Vans Shoes Sale Australia. Only 73! Only 73!Smith sends Hansdcomb to field at third man, directly in front of Little Pakistan. It almost seems like a punishment for not taking the catch. Handscomb is greeted with a rousing rendition of Dil Dil Pakistan. Its a song thats ubiquitous at any cricket match involving Pakistan. Now, just weeks after the death of the iconic pop singer Junaid Jamshed, who made it famous, it evokes an added poignancy.Mani is singing along. Hes originally from Multan but has lived in the Australian capital, Canberra, where he umpires in a local competition, for five years. Hes never seen Pakistan play and he is beyond nervous.The fans have now become celebrities. The television crews arrive. Ian Healy, zindabad! The radio crews and photographers follow. There are jeers for Starc when he shapes to throw the ball back at Yasir. There are cheers when Yasir responds by nudging another single. Jeers and cheers all round. Mani and Rohan shake hands. Theyve never met but they share a bond and could be about to share in history.Fifty-three runs to win.Omair has been standing on his seat, leading the singing. He was born in Australia and lives in Sydney but his parents hail from Karachi. Lyon leaps full stretch in an attempt to take a ball that flies past him, and lands face-down. He stays there. Omair also goes down. He drums the seat with jittery hands. Every exhale is a gust of pure tension. I cant do this. I cant do this.Yasir is rapped on the pads and Hazlewood appeals. The the umpires finger rises and so do the hands of the fans as they clutch their heads. Mani turns away and mutters, He didnt offer a shot. He didnt offer a shot. He cant look at the big screen as Yasir calls for the DRS, but his neighbours do, all on their feet, all on edge. When the cheers go up for the not-out call, Mani shakes his head. Hes too anxious to celebrate.But the calls for a no-ball have disappeared. Theres no need for them. Shafiq and Shah have got this. Now they all believe.Forty-one runs to win.Starc. A bouncer. Shafiq. Warner.It happens so quickly and this time there is no review, no chance, no reprieve. There isnt even time to inhale. A few seconds of disbelief and then they are on their feet again. Shafiq removes his helmet and looks to the sky in despair and then raises his bat to Little Pakistan. Youre a hero. Youre a hero, they reply.They rouse once more for Rahat Ali. He squirts out a single. Rahat for president!Forty runs to win.And then its over. Quickly and inexplicably.
