LONDON -- Milos Raonic is as good a server as there is in tennis nowadays. Wholesale Royals Jerseys .Andy Murray is one of the top returners.How that matchup plays out in the Wimbledon final Sunday could go a long way toward determining who wins the championship.The sixth-seeded Raonic heads into the first Grand Slam title match of his career -- and the first for a man representing Canada -- having won 116 of his 121 service games (96 percent) across six matches.Obviously, said Murray, the 2013 Wimbledon champion, Milos has got a fantastic serve.Raonic, who added John McEnroe to his coaching staff ahead of the grass-court portion of this season, has hit 154 aces, averaging 25 1/2 per match. Hes faced only 27 break points, saving 22.In his five-set victory over Roger Federer in the semifinals, Raonic saved 8 of 9 break points.Not only did the 6-foot-5 Raonic repeatedly top 140 mph in that match, he went as high as 144 mph more than once, and his average first serve of 129 mph was faster than Federers best offering of 126 mph.Raonics serve is speedy and scary, to be sure -- British Davis Cup captain Leon Smith called it ginormous -- but it is also much more than that.One reason its so effective is because of his ability to alter velocity and placement.Against Federer, he would boom one right at the body at upward of 135 mph -- emanating a thud that reverberated around Centre Court -- then hit an ace out wide at 115 mph that sent up a spray of chalk when it hit a line.You dont get in a rhythm, said Sam Querrey, the American who lost to Raonic in the quarterfinals after beating No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the third round. You go games on his serve where you might get one return in play.Dont count on that happening too often against Murray.Take out players who didnt make it past the second round this fortnight, and the second-seeded Murray ranks No. 1 in:- percentage of returns put in play, 77;- percentage of second-serve points won, 64;- percentage of return games won, 36.Murray -- a two-time major champion, most famously becoming the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years -- has won his past five matchups against Raonic. Just three weeks ago, Murray won their meeting in the final of the Queens Club grass-court tournament. Murray dropped the first set, then trailed 3-0 in the second, before beginning the turnaround with a return winner.It helps to have played a match against him on the grass, Murray said. You know, see some of the things hes doing on this surface a little bit differently.For Murray, this will be the 11th Grand Slam final of his career -- and third of this year -- but first against someone other than Djokovic or Federer.Raonic was asked what sort of a boost his debut in a major final might be for Canadian tennis.Its great to sort of be at the center and front of that come Sunday. Im glad that Ive sort of been leading this charge, the first one to break through and really put these things together, he said. But Im by no means done.Both times Murray earned a major trophy, Ivan Lendl was his coach. And after a hiatus, they have reunited.I dont think its a coincidence. I obviously had the best years of my career with him, Murray said.I obviously wanted to work with Ivan again to try to help me win these events, he added. Thats the goal.One of eight-time major champion Lendls rivals during his playing days was McEnroe, who won three of his seven Grand Slam titles at Wimbledon. Lendl won 21 of their 36 head-to-head matchups, although McEnroe won the only time they played at the All England Club, in the 1983 semifinals.Lendl is expected to be seated in Murrays guest box at Centre Court for the final. McEnroe? Instead of supporting Raonic at courtside, hell be in the TV commentary booth, calling the match for ESPN.---Freelance writer Sandra Harwitt contributed to this report.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Cheap MLB Jerseys . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. Cheap Royals Jerseys . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. http://www.cheaproyalsjerseys.com/ . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. English Premier League leaders Chelsea took the spoils at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night in an eventful game that saw the only goal scored by Cesc Fabregas.As expected, the home side set out their stall on the defensive for most of the encounter hoping to contain the powerful Chelsea forward line and grab something on the break.With Chelsea increasingly dominant, the crucial breakthrough came on 40 minutes. A neat one-two around the area between Fabregas and Willian saw the former advance and curl his shot beyond Jordan Pickford.The second half began with the visitors still probing and looking the more llikely to add to their lead. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. David Moyes made a couple of changes around the hour mark which gave Sunderland only minimal extra impetus.Toward the 90-minute mark, it was Pickford still the busier of the two goalkeepers, but in the dying seconds Thibault Courtois crucially pulled off the save of the game by beating out a Patrick Van Aanholt effort which seemed destined for the top corner.Chelsea remained at the top of the pile, and Sunderland are still adrift at the bottom. 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 ' ' '

Needing 314 to win, Tripura, who slumped to 65 for 7, were bowled out for 195.They were in danger of losing halfway into the second session, but Haryana were defied briefly courtesy counter-attacking knocks from Manisankar Mura Singh (60) and Gurinder Singh (62) in a 119-run stand.

Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. http://www.cheapbayernmunichjerseys.com/ .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. CLEVELAND -- One of Buck Showalters former top relievers strongly defended the managers bullpen management skills Wednesday, even as Showalter faced a torrent of criticism for his moves in the?Baltimore Orioles 5-2 wild-card loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday.Clevelands?Andrew Miller, who pitched in Baltimore in 2014, said he regards Showalter as one of the best in baseball at running a bullpen. He stood up for Showalter a day after the Orioles manager was vilified for losing to Toronto without putting All-Star closer Zach Britton in the game.Hes getting buried right now, but I tell people all the time how good he was, Miller told ESPN.com. Thats his reputation. Its not just me thats out there saying it. Today might not be the day to do it, but if you polled front-office guys who are out there, I think in general he would be as well-regarded as anybody at that particular skill.Showalter used Mychal Givens, Donnie Hart, Brad Brach,?Darren ODay?and Brian Duensing in relief of starter Chris Tillman before handing the ball to Ubaldo Jimenez with one out and the bases empty in the 11th inning. Jimenez allowed singles to Devon Travis and Josh Donaldson and an upper-deck home run to Edwin Encarnacion in a five-pitch span to allow Toronto to advance to the American League Division Series and end the Orioles season.Im as surprised as anybody Britton didnt find his way into that game, Miller said. But even with the earlier moves, ODay and Brach did such a good job, it almost looked like, Buck knows what hes doing. Hes got something going on. It just backfired. If it worked out, everybody would have said he was a genius and had it all figured out. Thats just the way it goes.Britton converted all 47 save opportunities during the regular season and finished with a 0.54 ERA and 0.84 WHIP. He made the AAll-Star team and is expected to receive support in both the AL Cy Young and Most Valuable Player voting. Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys Authentic. Showalter appeared to violate a cardinal rule by allowing a season to end without giving his best reliever an opportunity to pitch. As a result, his moves were a hot topic around baseball.Bucks in a tough spot, New York Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters before his teams National League wild-card matchup with?San Francisco. I didnt watch that much to see the ending of the game. But hes in a situation where, Does he save his closer if he gets the lead? If he uses him in the 10th, [the closer] is liable to get out of a jam. If the game goes 13 [innings] and they finally score, who is he going to run out there? And then hes going to be criticized for using his closer in a tie game.You know, its just the nature of the game. Hes one of the best if not the best in baseball, in my opinion, of running a game. So I feel bad hes being heavily criticized because he knows what hes doing.Before Wednesdays Division Series workout,?Boston?manager John Farrell said he wont hesitate to use closer Craig Kimbrel during the postseason in non-save situations on the road. Farrell employed the tactic several times with Kimbrel during the regular season.I think its a little tough to watch a guy like that stay in the bullpen, Kimbrel told reporters when asked about Britton. A lot of guys have been saying that today and even last night. Some of the moves [Showalter] made worked out great. They got great double plays in big situations. Its just one of those things: Do you want to wait, or do you want to keep your guy in there? Im glad we didnt have to make that decision. 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 ' ' '

Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall has a pretty good idea who his starting quarterback will be, but hes not ready to make that decision public just yet. Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys .An announcement will likely come by the middle of next week, the Cavaliers first-year coach said Friday, and he thinks the players have an idea already.I think so, just simply by the amount of repetition and how weve been distributing it, he said of practice reps. He said quarterbacks coach Jason Beck and offensive coordinator Robert Anae have communicated with all three contenders on a daily basis, so I dont think it will be a surprise to anyone.The contenders are incumbent Matt Johns, who threw for 20 touchdowns with 17 interceptions last season, fellow fifth-year senior Connor Brewer and East Carolina transfer Kurt Benkert, who began preseason camp getting more reps than the other two because he was not at Virginia for spring practice.Only the Cavaliers first three practices were open to the media.Mendenhall, who replaced Mike London after last season, won 99 games in 11 seasons at BYU and took the Cougars to a bowl game in each of his 11 seasons.The Cavaliers have not been to a bowl game since the 2011 Peach Bowl.Mendenhall, who will serve as the defensive coordinator, said hes not a fan of using more than one quarterback.I think the team, the offensive identity struggles. I also think the team identity struggles, he said on a conference call. Thats not something I prefer to do. Id rather have a single starting quarterback.An exception might be if a team has two quarterbacks with distinctly different styles, he said, but thats not the case at Virginia. All three are drop-back style quarterbacks, although Benkert is viewed as the most mobile and probably has the strongest arm of the three.He and Brewer also have more familiarity with the fast-paced offense the Cavaliers will employ.Beyond quarterback, Mendenhall said he has been impressed with the teams stable of running backs, and pleasantly surprised at how some players have impressed enough to be considered options at wide receiver. The latter was thought to be a weak spot, he said, but when injuries sidelined Olamide Zaccheaus and Andre Levrone during camp, players like David Eldridge and Warren Craft have shown themselves to be more than capable.Mendenhall still expects Zaccheauu and Levrone to be ready for the Sept. 3 opener against Richmond, he said.At tailback, Taquan Smoke Mizzell distinguished himself last season, running for 671 yards and four touchdowns and catching 75 passes for 721 yards and four more scores. His receiving yardage was a record for an Atlantic Coast Conference running back, but hes far from the only ball-carrying option.A lot of people know about Smoke, but Daniel Hamm, and Jordan Ellis and Albert Reid -- those three players have really set the tone for our entire team in camp and I didnt expect that Id be that impressed, but I am with those three, Mendenhall said. Cheap Cavaliers Jerseys Authentic . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. Cheap Swingman Cavaliers Jerseys . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. http://www.cheapcavaliersjerseysauthentic.com/ . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. SEATTLE -- Kelsey Plumb scored 23 points with eight rebounds and eight assists and broke the school 3-point record, leading No. 11 Washington to an 87-36 win over Savannah State on Sunday for its eighth-straight win.With the first of her five 3s, Plum, who become the Pac-12s all-time leading scorer in her last game, broke the Husky career mark of 265.Heather Corral came off the bench to score a season-high 15 points after missing the last four games with an injury. The Huskies played without Chantel Osahor, who leads the nation in rebounding at 14.22 per game, after she was hit in the head and played just four minutes in their last game, ending her streak of nine-straight double-doubles. Cheap NBA Jerseys. .Washington (11-1) scored nine straight to start a 14-2 run to end the first quarter leading 21-8.

New Zealand have produced a masterclass performance to destroy Australia at ANZ Stadium, scoring six tries to one to claim a one-sided victory after conceding the opening points of the night, a penalty from Bernard Foley. Wholesale Mets Jerseys .The shell-shocked Wallabies were dominated in every facet, with the scrum and lineout malfunctioning, the breakdown ravaged and bodies broken in a disastrous start to the Rugby Championship.The Test was all over by halftime, with the Wallabies trailing 32-3 and barely able to field a backline after worrying injuries to Matt Giteau (ankle), Matt Toomua (neck/head) and Rob Horne (shoulder). So dire was the casualty toll that reserve half-back Nick Phipps played on the wing, forced to mark up on All Blacks powerhouse Julian Savea, as Australias hopes of ending a 14-year Bledisloe Cup drought suffered a psychological hammer blow.Without a victory in New Zealand in 15 years, the Wallabies must win twice in two months across the Tasman to miraculously wrestle back the trophy.That goal seemingly a pipe dream, the first priority will be regrouping for return bout in Wellington next Saturday with coach Michael Cheika certain to require several reinforcements. Newly appointed national skills coach Mick Byrne also has a huge task trying to solve Australias kicking woes after a series of fundamental blunders from the Wallabies.Giteau, who lasted barely 10 minutes before limping off in a painful re-run of his 2015 World Cup final despair, failed to find touch from a penalty before the All Blacks first try, while Bernard Foley and Israel Folau both had clearing kicks charged down -- Foleys gifting Jerome Kaino a five-pointer.But the set piece remains Cheikas biggest concern, with the All Blacks winning five lineouts on the Wallabies throw and a rare scrum against the feed.All Blacks captain Kieran Read described the performance as outstanding although he lamented disappointing execution in the second half that he claimed cost them a couple of tries, while his Wallabies counterpart, Stephen Moore, was lost for words.Its hard to know what to say, Moore said.I feel for all our fans who came out tonight. It wasnt good enough for us tonight. Really disappointed.I thought we clawed back into it in that second half, but [it was] just too big a lead.We prepared well and trained really hard in the last three weeks and we thought we were ready to play well tonight, but we need to look at all that - go back to it.Weve got another game next week so you dont just give up.Weve just got to keep going and get ready for next week over there. Cheap MLB Jerseys . Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. http://www.cheapmetsjerseys.com/ .S. -- Nikolaj Ehlers registered a hat trick for the third straight game and Jonathan Drouin had a goal and five assists as the Halifax Mooseheads hammered the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 10-1 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. WASHINGTON -- The Capitals didnt exactly end their overtime victory with a raucous celebration.No, instead Washington held a players-only meeting, still salty over blowing a three-goal lead.Nicklas Backstrom scored 1:36 into overtime, helping the Capitals beat the Boston Bruins 4-3 to avert a disastrous defeat Wednesday night.Justin Williams scored twice and Daniel Winnik also had a goal to put Washington ahead 3-0 about six minutes into the second period.After Winniks tally, Washington went over 26 minutes without a shot on goal. Boston dominated the final five minutes of the second period, when Dominic Moore and David Pastrnak beat goaltender Braden Holtby. Colin Millers power-play score 8:19 into third tied it at 3.Backstrom saved the day, but not the Capitals from feeling uneasy.In the second and third period they outplayed, Backstrom said. We were lucky that we came up with two points. Were not satisfied at all. Were happy with the two points, but not the way we played.The locker room remained closed for approximately 15 minutes after the win, Washingtons second in a row after losing three straight.We had a little talking here, said T.J. Oshie, who returned to the lineup for the first time since injuring his shoulder on Nov. 18. There are some things weve got to clean up. I think its more of a mentality more than it is the systems or anything like that. ... Once we get a step up on someone, we have to get that mentality that were going to finish them off.Evgeny Kuznetsov had two assists for the Capitals and Alex Ovechkin got his first point since Nov. 26.Boston arrived in Washington 4-0-1 over its last five games with three wins in a row, including a 4-3 overtime triumph against Florida on Monday night. The Bruins outshot Washington 34-20.Hell of an effort. We got a big point for us. To comeback from 3-0 against Washington, its not that easy, Passtrnak said. Cheap Mets Jerseys Authentic. Too bad we couldnt get the two points, but in this case the one point is huge for us.Backstrom patiently waited on the right side before firing the winner past goaltender Tuukka Rask, who entered second in the league with a 1.68 goals-against average. Rask allowed three goals in his previous outing, too.Williams had two goals over the first 24 games this season, but he matched that total less than eight minutes in against the Bruins. He redirected Kuznetsovs lofted centering pass past Rask for a 1-0 lead just 23 seconds into the first period.To be honest its nice to see the puck go in the net, Williams said. Ive been pressing and working hard. Hopefully this can springboard me to some more production.Matt Niskanen left with an upper-body injury and did not return. With the Caps down a defenseman, Boston outshot Washington 11-2 in the second period.In the second period, we just sort of sat back, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. Its hard to protect leads in the league.The Capitals second goal also occurred in front of the net. Williams emerged from a scramble with a shot that slithered under Rask.Game notes With his 673rd career win, Trotz passed Mike Keenan (672) for eighth place on the NHLs career wins list. ... Williams first goal was the fastest for Washington since 2012. ... Boston assigned F Noel Acciari to the Providence Bruins two days after the 24-year forward returned to practice. Acciari injured his right leg on Nov. 7. ... Holtby improved to 10-2 career against the Bruins. His first career win came in relief against Boston in November 2010. ...

Schenn scored the game-winning goal and added two assists to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday. LONDON -- Heather Watson ran straight over to hug Henri Kontinen, her mixed doubles partner, after their victory was confirmed on Court One.After the lows of a first-round exit in the singles at Wimbledon, the Britons run to her first Grand Slam final has provided some much-needed cheer.Im pretty happy, to be honest. No, very happy, Watson told the BBC. I dont really know what to say. Im having so much fun on court with Henri.Watson and Kontinen had never played together before this week. But now they are into the mixed doubles final after a 7-6 (1), 6-3 win against Oliver Marach and Jelena Ostapenko.Having received walkovers in their first two matches, they had barely practised together, bar a warm-up, before beating defending champions Leander Paes and Martina Hingis in the quarterfinals,Watson beamed from ear to ear after shaking hands with their semifinal opponents at the net on Saturday. She clasped her arms around Kontinens neck again when they took their seats, and was signing autographs and posing for selfies on her way off court.It was a far cry from the frustrated figure who drew a $12,000 (£9,294) fine -- the second-biggest in Wimbledon history -- for angrily slamming her racket to the turf during her singles defeat to Annika Beck, a sanction she deemed excessive.Watson and Kontinen, who know each other through the Finns British coach, Chris Eaton, wanted to play together at the French Open -- as a joke, according to Watson -- but didnt make the cut due to the Britons ranking. But with Wimbledon having a larger draw, they knew they would get in this time around.God, Im glad we decided to play together, she added, before admitting that being a major finalist was pretty damn cool.It would mean absolutely everything to me to win not just a Grand Slam, but here at Wimbledon, she told a media conference.Watson didnt even know she would be following Andy Murray onto Centre Court on Sunday -- something else she called pretty cool.Mixed is a fun thing, it doesnt come around very often, she said. Its a tough thing to take super seriously. Theres always different pairings. You cant reallyy prepare in that way you can in singles. Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys. .Theres definitely a lot more smiles and laughing and chatting on the mixed doubles court. I enjoy both, but there hasnt been much pressure on us. We werent expected to get to the final.Maybe I should laugh and smile more in my singles matches, and chat to myself.Watson will be hoping to claim more doubles success for Britain on Sunday, after Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett became the first Britons to win the mens wheelchair doubles title at Wimbledon.Its been an incredible week, a bit of a fairytale story so far. Hopefully I can finish it off the right way tomorrow, said Reid, who will play in the first wheelchair singles final here on Sunday.Im really pleased for Alfie, I know what its like winning your first Grand Slam. To be able to do it here on home turf, its something Ill never forget for sure. Its going to be the same for Alfie.Reid, the Australian Open wheelchair singles champion, is hoping he and Murray?-- who plays in the mens singles final against Milos Raonic -- can make it a historic double for Scotland.Not bad for a small country like ours, he said. I was on Centre Court when Andy won in 2013, which was an amazing achievement. For me, having the opportunity to win the first time theyve had a wheelchair singles event is massive.We dont speak that much; hes a busy guy, Reid said of Murray. But whenever we bump into each other at the Grand Slams we have a little chat.Tim Henman might have a battle on his hands when it comes to naming the Wimbledon hill, even if Murray said he was happy for his friend to have the privilege.I heard somebody say it was renamed Reids Ridge now. I dont know if thats going to catch on enough, Reid said, smiling. Were trying to gain a lot of new fans and followers of our sport. Seeing everybody on the hill watching on the big screen shows how far our sports come. Its a really good platform to build on.Wheelchair tennis was trending on Twitter -- thats not bad, ?Hewett said. 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 ' ' '

GREEN BAY, Wis. Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys Authentic . -- As the yards and points allowed add up at a huge rate, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is staying the course.McCarthy reiterated Monday what he said after the Packers latest crushing loss the previous night: now is not the time to make any drastic changes, especially with a defense that is low on manpower and high on allowing big plays.Theres no reinventing the wheel, McCarthy asserted. Weve talked about this since the day I arrived here. We have a system of football -- offense, defense and special teams -- that accommodates any football player on our roster. If weve got to reinvent the wheel in Week 11 or Week 12, we havent set our plan the right way for the season.Theres not much time left for the Packers to get the season turned back in the right direction after host Washington pummeled them 42-24 on Sunday night.The Packers are in the throes of their first four-game losing streak since late in the 2008 season, the last time they didnt make the playoffs. At 4-6, they are two games behind NFC North front-runners Detroit and Minnesota.Most troubling for Green Bay is opponents have figured out the clear way to beat the Packers is to go deep against the porous back end of their defense.Kirk Cousins exploited a short-handed secondary that thinned out even more during the game by throwing for 375 yards and three touchdowns. The Packers allowed 515 yards, a season high, and 40-plus points for the second straight week after giving up 47 in a 22-point loss at Tennessee.You cant win ballgames giving up that many points, no matter whos on offense, defensive back Micah Hyde lamented after Sundays game. Our offense can score a lot of points and move the ball, do what they do, but if we give up that many points, were not going to win any games. And weve seen that the last couple of weeks.The hemorrhaging with the defense has been going on for nearly a month. Green Bay has given up 30 or more points in each game during the skid, its longest such streak of allowing so many points in a game since 1953. The 153 points allowed are the most by the Packers in a four-game stretch since the 1951 team gave up 156 its final four weeks.The Green Bay defense has been responsible for all but seven of those points in the last four contests, during which the opposition has averaged more than 420 yards per game and thrown for nearly 1,250 yards and 12 touchdowns.To the chagrin of McCarthy, the Packers have forced only two turnovers in those games. Theyve had zero the last two weeks.The biggest hole in our football team is our turnover ratio, said McCarthy, whose club is minus-6 in turnover margin. Ive been talking about it all year. Were not taking care of the football, were not taking the football away. Until that changes, were going to be fighting uphill.Defensive coordinator Dom Capers simply said, No excuses, on Monday even as the injuries mounted for the defense.Already playing without top cornerbacks Sam Shields and Damarious Randall, the Packers lost replacement starter Demetri Goodson to what McCarthy termed a significant knee injury in the first half Sunday.Green Bay later had starting rookie linebacker Blake Martinez (knee) and contributing rookie safety Kentrell Brice (neck) leave the game as the Redskins pulled away in the second half with touchdown passes of 44 and 70 yards and a few other big plays.Thats when kind of all hell broke loose, Capers said.McCarthy said Randall is getting closer to returning to action, perhaps by next Monday night, when the Packers end their three-game road swing against the Philadelphia Eagles.I think what happened (Sunday) is very correctable, and weve got to go back to work and correct it because we know weve got to go to Philly and find a way to win a game, Capers said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Bayern Munich Jerseys China .

TORONTO -- Top-ranked Novak Djokovic beat 10th-seeded Gael Monfils 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday night to reach the Rogers Cup final and improve to 12-0 against the Frenchman.You do have a certain mental comfort knowing that you have had plenty of success against your opponent, Djokovic said. Nevertheless, that is not a certainty. Thats not a guarantee that you can win the match. Actually, it makes him more eager to come out and play his best tennis.Djokovic will face third-seeded Kei Nishikori of Japan on Sunday. Nishikori beat second-seeded Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland 7-6 (6), 6-1 in the first semifinal.Djokovic is trying to win a record 30th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title. The 29-year-old Serb has 12 Grand Slam titles, winning this year in Australia and France.Monfils was coming off a victory last week in Washington.I guess he missed a few shots at the beginning. I got some opportunities and I took them, Monfils said. And then suddenly he was not missing anymore. He was going for his shots and being much better in the rallies. He became super solid. When Novak is playing like that, its very tough to beat him.Djokovic had six double faaults and one ace. Wholesale Bayern Munich Jerseys. Ive been working on my serve a lot the last couple of years, and I think especially on the second serve it has gave me an advantage, more depth on the second serve and so forth, Djokovic said. In this tournament, it is not working very well, but in general in past couple of years, it has served me very well.Nishikori recorded his fourth straight Memphis title in February for his 11th ATP Tour victory. He has lost his past eight matches with Djokovic, the last loss in the Key Biscayne final in April.Havent beat Novak for a long time on hard court, Nishikori said. I think its going to be a great challenge for me to play Novak again in the final, because we played in Miami and he dominated the game. So, I hope I can get revenge this time.In the doubles semifinals, Britains Jamie Murray and Brazils Bruno Soares beat Canadas Daniel Nestor and Vasek Pospisil 6-4, 6-7 (5), 10-7, and Croatias Ivan Dodig and Brazils Marcelo Melo topped Romanias Florin Mergea and Horia Tecau 6-4, 6-3. 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 ' ' '

AMES, Iowa -- It was apparent after Iowa States opener that the Cyclones will struggle to run the ball this season. Cheap Stitched NFL Jerseys . The Cyclones cant seem to throw it much, either, an issue that has plunged the program into a quarterback controversy just two games into coach Matt Campbells first season.Quarterback Joel Lannings starting job may be in jeopardy after he gave way to sophomore Jacob Park in last weeks 42-3 loss to No. 13 Iowa . Iowa State, which is 127th out of 128 FBS teams with just 11.5 points per game, visits TCU (1-1) on Saturday as a 23.5-point underdog hoping to avoid its first 0-3 start since 1997.I dont know if I forecast any major changes right now. But I think thats what practice is for, Campbell said.In the offseason there was never a question that Lanning, a junior who took over the starting job midway through last season, would be the guy going forward. But he looked so bad on Saturday that Campbell was forced to pull him.Lanning, who threw three touchdowns passes for the third time in his career in Iowa States 25-20 loss to FCS school Northern Iowa on Sept. 3, looked shaky from the opening series against the Hawkeyes.Lanning misfired on a number of easy early passes designed to help the Cyclones move the ball in the absence of a rushing threat. Iowa only made things worse, forcing Iowa State to abandon the run game altogether by building a 28-3 lead before halftime. Lanning completed just 8 of 20 passes for 86 yards and, for the third time in two games, an interception that couldve easily been avoided.Park, a transfer who started his career at Georgia, wasnt much better. He finished 6 of 15 for 79 yards playing largely against Iowa reserves.Lanning was listed as the starter on Mondays depth chart, and the fact that his teammates named him a captain would make a change a tricky one.But Campbell didnt dismiss the idea of playing both against the Horned Frogs, who will likely be motivated to rebound from a 41-38 home loss to Arkansas last weekend.If you look at my past, Ive never been a one-quarterback guy. I think Ive always (been about) what gives us the best chance to be successful, Campbell said. Were going to do whatever we need to do to give ourselves some consistency on (offense).Iowa States offensive line, battered by injuries and inexperience, appears to be a problem that wont be fixed anytime soon. Running back Mike Warren, who had 1,337 yards as a freshman in 2015, had just seven carries for 28 yards last weekend as Iowa stuffed him in the backfield time and time again.Campbell said Saturday that Warren has got to be a guy thats accountable on and off the field, adding that he thought Warren failed to make some plays that he could have made. He didnt completely change from that stance Monday.My challenge to Michael is my challenge for all of our players. We have to continue to get better, said Campbell, who added that his comments werent meant to be a dig at Warren. We knew what expectations would be put on Mike ... hes got to make sure hes at his best constantly so he can handle all that comes with that.---Follow Luke Meredith on Twitter at www.twitter.com/LukeMeredithAP--Online: www.collegefootball.ap.org Wholesale Jerseys China .

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.Gareth Southgate says there is still high potential throughout the England squad despite the disappointing benchmark set in recent tournaments. The interim England boss will take charge of his final match in a four-game stint agreed after the departure of Sam Allardyce when Spain visit Wembley on Tuesday, but he remains the frontrunner to take the job on a permanent basis.Southgate accepts the group stage exit at the World Cup in 2014 and humiliating defeat to Iceland at the Euros this year show the nation is in no position to get ahead of itself but believes the players have the attitude and aptitude to achieve success. Iceland beat England at Euro 2016 Im not sure if Ive learned about myself because I was very aware of what I am, what Im capable of, what I do, he said of his temporary stint. Ive obviously learned about the role, Ive learned about the players and everything that surrounds the international set-up.I think part of coach development is knowing yourself anyway and then everyone else is a lot more comfortable. I think the insight has been into everything else that surrounds being in the position. Also its fascinating to see what is possible and achievable with this group of players.

The last two tournaments are a benchmark of where were at so we cant keep talking about were good, were this, were that.We have to prove it and that means a lot of work ahead for whoever is in the position to take the team forward, but there is a real desire from the players to do that. I think theyre going to get big match experience with all their clubs that is going to aid that development. Highlights of Englands clash with Scotland at Wembley in their 2018 World Cup qualifier Title challenges and European football at club level is being complemented by tough international friendlies, with trips to Germany and France lined up before the season is out.First commes a home clash with 2010 World Cup winners, and two-time European champions, Spain - a country that until relatively recently had struggled to translate individual class into a successful team. China NFL Jerseys. Jordan Henderson will captain England against Spain I think it is good to look at what successful teams do and what you might implement in your own competitive play, Southgate said.But I think what is more important at the moment for us is we have got several top teams playing in a certain way, a high-pressing, possession-based game.We cant be the same as Spain because their players have been brought up in a different way. But maybe we have more power, more pace, more strength and so we have to develop our style of play around what our better players are doing and what suits them. Southgate led England to a 3-0 win over Scotland Southgate manages everything like he is going to be there forever and believes the players approach things in a similar manner.I think as a team they want to build towards being successful in the World Cup and the European Championship, he said. If youre only looking at being successful in the next game and winning that, then I dont think you set the bar high enough. 17 year old Dylan Duncan trains with the England senior squad to make up the numbers for Gareth Southgate There has got to be constant improvement in the way that we play and the way that they work.

The England batsman, who played a starring role as Eoin Morgans side reached the World T20 final, discussed his experience at the tournament, franchise cricket and playing T20 as a youngster.There is no complications with Twenty20 cricket, youre just going out there, watching the ball and hitting the ball, said Roy. The 25-year-old Surrey opener also spoke about how he spends his time away from cricket, with golf and riding his Harley Davidson high up on the list.Those activities certainly seem to be helping as Roy believes he is far more relaxed as a player than he was earlier in his career.I used to be very temperamental, he added. A lot of ups and downs in my cricket and that showed in my performances.Those issues look to be in the past now with Roy looking to the future and revealing his desire to play in an Ashes series for England: Thats got to be the pinnacle.Watch Jason Roy in action as Surrey take on Glamorgan in the Natwest T20 Blast on Thursday from 6pm, live on Sky Sports 2 HD.

Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Bradley Wiggins slowly dismounted his track bike for the final time, basking in the cheers of an adoring crowd, and was greeted by two of the most decorated Olympians in British history.Not the most decorated, mind you.That title now belongs solely to him.Wiggins teamed with Ed Clancy, Steven Burke and Owain Doull to beat Australia in record-setting time at the Rio Games on Friday night, winning gold in the team pursuit for the third consecutive time and giving the former Tour de France champion his eighth Olympic medal overall.That breaks a tie with retired track cyclist Chris Hoy and gives Wiggins two more medals than retired rower Steve Redgrave, long considered Britains golden standard.It was never about that for me, Wiggins said, his new medal dangling from his neck. Theyre my heroes in Olympic sport, and just to be in the same breath as those guys is an honor, really.Britain stopped the clock in 3 minutes, 50.265 seconds to lower the world record it set in the semifinal round. That beat the Australian team of Alexander Edmondson, Jack Bobridge, Michael Hepburn and Sam Welsford, who finished in 3:51.008 to earn the silver medal.We knew going in we had a small chance, Edmondson said. We had to try.Denmark easily beat New Zealand to earn bronze.Earlier in the night, the Chinese pair of Gong Jinjie and Zhong Tianshi won gold in the womens team sprint, beating the Russian team of Daria Shmeleva and Anastasia Voinova in the finals.China broke its own world record in the semifinals, beating Spain with a time of 31.928 seconds, before knocking off the Russians to earn the nations first track cycling gold medal.We wanted to show the strength of the Chinese people, said Gong, who won silver at the London Games. Today we just wanted to achieve the best for ourselves -- and conquer a world record.The German team of Miriam Welte and Kristina Vogel, the reigning Olympic champions, beat the Australian pair of Anna Meares and Stephanie Morton to claim bronze.We started working for this medal four weeks after London 2012, Welte said. We had so many ups and downs. Last year was so hard. Now weve got something back, a medal.After helping Britain win the team sprint Thursday, Jason Kenny and Callum Skinner squeaked past their opponents in the opening round of thhe individual sprint competition Friday night. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic. Kenny broke his own Olympic record in qualifying before edging Maximilian Levy of Germany in the first round, while Skinner led the whole way in beating Patrick Constable of Australia.The competition continues through the semifinals Saturday.That was merely the undercard to the mens team pursuit finals, though.Wiggins largely retired from road cycling after winning the time trial at the London Games, seemingly content not only with his career in professional cycling but also the Olympics. Yet there was a persistent itch to get back on the track, one he couldnt help but scratch.The world hour-record holder soon dedicated himself to winning more gold in the event that first made him a star. He formed his own road team so that he could pick and choose specific events for his training, and spent long hours in the velodrome as the team perfected its technique.They were on point from the moment they began qualifying in Rio.Britain easily set the fastest time in qualifying to earn a favorable draw in the semifinals, then routed New Zealand by more than 5 seconds -- an eternity over 4,000 meters.Australia made things interesting in the final, building a lead of 0.695 seconds by the midway mark. But the British team kept their four riders together long while Australia dropped one, and they managed to slowly trim into the lead before pulling ahead at the 3500-meter mark.Youre so focused on what Ive got to do in the race, youre not really aware of whats going on and how close it is, Wiggins said, I wasnt worried about how close the Aussies were.Still, Wiggins and his teammates were so spent by the intense effort they hardly raised a fist to celebrate, instead coasting around the velodrome. Doull eventually grabbed a British flag and flew it high in the air, another victory in a sport his nation has come to dominate.This is something Ill be proud of the rest of my life, and what Bradleys done to win five (gold medals) is out of this world, Doull said. To have those guys who have been in these big fights before, these finals, and know theyre going to deliver time and again is really reassuring. 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 ' ' '

Andy Murray is within striking distance of becoming the mens world No. Cheap MLB Jerseys . 1.The 29-year-old has won Wimbledon and an Olympic gold medal among seven titles this season, with victory at the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday putting him potentially a week away from toppling Novak Djokovic.Djokovic has topped the rankings since July 2014 but a dip in form, coupled with Murrays superb results, has put the Serbians reign in jeopardy.If Murray wins in Paris in the week ahead, then he will take over at the rankings summit providing Djokovic does not reach the final.?Heres how Murray can overtake Djokovic:THE RANKINGS AS THEY STAND Djokovic: 12,900 points Murray: 10,985?MURRAY AIMS FOR FRENCH CAPITAL GAINS The regular tour comes to an end with the final Masters event in Paris, starting on Monday, with Djokovic defending his title and 1,000 ranking points.He beat Murray in last years final, with the Scot earning 600 points.If Murray were to enjoy another impressive week in the French capital and lift the trophy next Sunday, he would gain an additional extra 400 points.Should Djokovic only reach the semifinals, he would drop 640 points.How the points tot up if Murray wins in Paris and Djokovic reaches the semi-final: Djokovic: 12,260, Murray: 11,385 DJOKOVICS BIG POINTS DROP On Monday, November 7, Djokovic will lose the 1,300 points he amassed for winning the ATP World Tour Finals last November in London, ahead of the start of that tournament on the following Sunday.And that could be the trigger point for Murray to overtake him.Murray, who has consistently struggled at the World Tour Finals, won only won match there last year so drops just 200 points.How it would stand after last seasons World Tour Finals points are taken off -- if Murray wins in Paris and Djokovic reaches the semi-finals: Murray: 11,185Djokovic: 10,960 Wholesale Mets Jerseys . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes.

Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. http://www.cheapmetsjerseys.com/ . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. PULLMAN, Wash. -- Eight years ago, Washington walked off the field at Martin Stadium engulfed in a sea of crimson, its football program at the lowest point in its history.When they left that same field on Friday night, the Huskies were passing the Apple Cup trophy like a baton -- from teammate to teammate -- hoping its the first of a few trophies to be celebrated this year.Next up, perhaps a Pac-12 championship trophy. And after that, who knows what kind of hardware will be at stake for No. 6 Washington.I think the really good teams, the special teams can finish, Washington coach Chris Petersen said. The hard part about that is youre playing better teams here as we finish. And so the next team well play will be a really good and elite team. So its hard to finish, and then the one after that will be a really good team. Well figure all this out after were done playing, because we just feel like weve got some good football left.Washingtons dominant 45-17 win over No. 23 Washington State on Friday was complete affirmation of what Petersen has accomplished in three seasons in charge of the Huskies. More than just the Apple Cup and bragging rights within the state were at stake. A loss to the Cougars would have left Washington (11-1, 8-1 Pac-12) out of the Pac-12 title game and out of the College Football Playoff.It was a game of enormous magnitude. And its importance was seemingly met with a collective shrug by the Huskies, who rolled to a 28-3 lead in just 14 minutes, 37 seconds, and simply overwhelmed Washington State.It all comes back to the details that coach (Petersen) preaches. Just comes back to practice and how we study our opponents, all of that, Washington left tackle Trey Adams said.Washingtons first reward is a spot in the Pac-12 championship game on Friday against Colorado. Colorado was probably the preferred opponent, but Washington will miss out on a chance at revenge against Southern California after losing to the Trojans 26-13 this month.Its the reward waiting after next Friday that looms as being the ultimate statement of how far the Huskkies have climbed since that 0-12 season in 2008. Cheap Mets Jerseys China. That lost season was punctuated by a loss to a Washington State team that finished 2-10.A win next Friday should put the Huskies into the CFP final four and a shot at the schools first national title since the Huskies were co-champs with Miami in 1991.I really dont care. Whoever we play, it will be awesome. Itll be a great game and great experience, Washington WR John Ross said.The loss to USC appeared to expose flaws hidden by Washingtons soft schedule through the first three quarters of the season. The pass rush disappeared. Quarterback Jake Browning was flustered and made careless mistakes. The 13 points Washington scored against the Trojans were the fewest in 21 games.This is why the last two games -- a blowout of Arizona State and the romp over Washington State -- eased those concerns and made the slog against USC appear as the outlier.Browning rediscovered the form that had him in the Heisman Trophy conversation earlier this season. He was 13 of 17 for 202 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter alone Friday, and finished 21 of 29 for 292 yards. He has 40 TD passes for the season, joining Jared Goff and Marcus Mariota as the only Pac-12 QBs with 40 or more TD passes in a season.Equally important is a defense that stymied Arizona State, then held Washington State to its lowest output of points and yards since last years Apple Cup when quarterback Luke Falk was injured and didnt play. Washington made a trio of goal line stands and held the Cougars to a season-low 334 yards.It means a lot, but at the end of the day its about us. We didnt listen to the outside noise. We didnt let it leak into our locker room, Washington running back Lavon Coleman said. We were focused on getting ready to play a championship game with championship effort and take care of our business.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 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 ' ' '
