The Seahawks need just one win against either of their final two NFC opponents 鈥?at San Francisco this week or at home to Arizona in Week 17 ?to wrap up a wild-card berth.They didn't get here without controversy, however, after officials failed to call a penalty on Bobby Wagner when he leaped the line of scrimmage to block Dan Bailey's field goal attempt with 5:38 remaining.Wagner's play was a marvel ?clearing the Minnesota line without the benefit of a running start. But his hands clearly touched the backs of two teammates as he leaped. Wagner didn't seem to care postgame whether his play was legal or not, and coach Pete Carroll emphasized on his weekly radio show on KIRO-AM on Tuesday morning that he considered it a judgment call."They have to judge. You can place your hands on players. You can't use it for leverage. That's where the judgment comes in http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/rodger-saffold-jersey ," Carroll said.The leap added to a list of Monday night controversies that began with the 2012 "Fail Mary" game. The disputed touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Golden Tate on the final play of that game to beat Green Bay triggered an end to a dispute between the league and its officials.That was followed in 2015 by a 13-10 win against Detroit during which Kam Chancellor forced a fumble at the 1-yard line with less than two minutes remaining, and K.J. Wright illegally guided the ball out of the end zone for a touchback. Wright should have been called for an illegal bat and Detroit should have regained possession at the Seattle 1. Instead, the Seahawks ran out the clock.In 2016, officials failed to call a roughing the kicker penalty against Richard Sherman late in the first half against Buffalo. Eventually, Dan Carpenter missed a 54-yard attempt and Buffalo ended up losing by six.And then came Wagner's leap. Had Wagner been penalized, the Vikings would have had a first down at the Seattle 15. As it stood http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-aqib-talib-jersey , Wagner's block sparked a quick drive by Seattle capped by Chris Carson's 2-yard touchdown run that put the game out of reach."He game-planned the hell out of it, so we already knew he was going to block it," Seattle defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson said. "That was a great call and it worked. That's what we save those things for. He made a great leap, blocked it."The Seahawks almost can't miss the postseason at this point. And it was Seattle's defense that led the way against the Vikings.The Seahawks used a variety of coverages to stymie Kirk Cousins and keep Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen from being factors until late in the game. The Seahawks held Minnesota to 276 total yards after allowing 450 yards or more in three of the previous four games."That's the name of the game right now. Who can outlast the other opponent?" defensive end Frank Clark said. "Who can take the pain a little bit more right now? Who can thrive the best under the pressure of being great, the pressure of succeeding, the pressure of taking on the pressure when it's all on you? I feel like that's the one thing we're doing right now."NOTES: Carroll said on his radio show that LB Mychal Kendricks injured his knee during the game and was unsure if he would be able to play Sunday. Kendricks briefly went to the sideline during the second half but returned to the game. ... Seattle rushed for 214 yards Youth John Johnson Jersey , second-highest total of the season. The Seahawks rushed for 273 yards against the Rams. Both of those performances came with Jordan Simmons filling in at right guard for D.J. Fluker, who missed Monday's game with a hamstring injury.
Topic: The Bengals appear ready to choose Zac Taylor as their next he
Posted: Wednesday, February 27, 2019 9:48:42 PM
ad coach.Taylor www.ramsfootballauthentics.com , the Rams’ quarterbacks coach, is the Bengals’ choice, according to multiple reports.Officially, the Bengals cannot hire Taylor until the Rams’ postseason is over. As the Colts found out last year when they were spurned at the last minute by Josh McDaniels, an assistant coach who works for another team can’t be hired until his team is done playing, and a verbal agreement is unenforceable.But from all indications, Taylor is the man. A 35-year-old former Nebraska quarterback, Taylor will draw immediate comparisons to his boss Los Angeles Rams T-Shirt , Rams head coach Sean McVay, because of his age and his offensive approach. McVay is such a hot coach that several teams have attempted to hire the “next Sean McVay” this year.Taylor has previously worked as the Rams’ wide receivers coach, the Dolphins’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, and the offensive coordinator at the University of Cincinnati. It likely is the most ridiculous thing you’ll read today: An online betting service gave Sean McVay the best odds to end up as the Browns’ next head coach. The first question is: Why would McVay leave the Rams for the Browns?McVay, 32, reportedly signed a five-year contract when Los Angeles hired him before last season. He won coach of the year honors in his first season, and the Rams are the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL this season.McVay shot down any notion that he would leave the Rams after the season.“I couldn’t be happier to be here with our players, with this organization Los Angeles Rams Hats , working for a great owner in [owner] Mr. [Stan] Kroenke,” McVay said Monday, via quotes distributed by the team. “Unless they decide they want to make a change, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, 35, also made the list of candidates, and that makes more sense. Rams passing game coordinator Shane Waldron, 39 Los Angeles Rams Womens Hoodie , did not, but he likely gets interviews after the season.McVay said any interest teams show in his assistants will not become a distraction for the Rams.“These guys have the right mindset,” McVay said. “I think it’d be silly for me to think [it would become a distraction]. Ultimately, where I’ve been so fortunate to be able to grow and get opportunities as a result of being around some good people, and I think they’ve been instrumental in some of the success we’ve had up to this point. But what those guys will do is they’ll continue to work exactly like they have, doing an excellent job coaching and being the best Rams coaches they can be. Down the line, I think they know that if you want to continue to be in those conversations, if that’s something that they have goals to be able to try to achieve Womens Customized Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , then we’ve got to continue to have success as a team. There’s nothing more exciting than to see people get a chance to grow if that’s something that they feel like is best for them and their families. In the meantime, I feel really fortunate to work with guys like that. I know that I’ve gotten to be a better coach from working with them and what I’ve been able to learn from them.”Lincoln Riley (+225), John DeFilippo (+650), Dan Campbell (+750), Brian Flores (+750), Dave Toub (+800), Jim Harbaugh (+1200) and Bill Belichick (+2000) also received odds on becoming the Browns’ next head coach from betonline.ag.

be a dominant display of future NFL talent. Both rosters feature a plethora of first-round picks http://www.authenticsbuffalobills.com/cheap-marcus-murphy-jersey , all the way down to Day 3 gems. If you are at all interested in the draft process, this game is must-see TV. As always, let’s talk about the game, leave questions on prospects and enjoy.No. 2 Clemson vs. No. 1 AlabamaCollege Football Championship Game8:00 PM Eastern, ESPNClemson and Alabama have clashed in three of the last four Championship games. While it makes for boring entertainment, it also allows for familiar scouting. Both teams Authentic Shaq Lawson Jersey , though, are somewhat different incarnations on offense from those that met in 2016 and 2015. Former Clemson starting quarterback Kelly Bryant was benched in favor of highly recruited freshman Trevor Lawrence. Unfortunately, neither Lawrence nor running back Travis Etienne are draft-eligible. A young team, the only prospects the Tigers have on offense this year are slot receiver Hunter Renfrow and left tackle Mitch Hyatt. Both players are extremely experienced and battle-hardened, but are likely to be selected on Day 3 of the draft. The real draft stars for Clemson are on the defensive side of the ball. Their defensive line is legendary at this point, with defensive tackles Dexter Lawrence Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , Christian Wilkins and defensive end Clelin Ferrell being evaluated as first round talents. Unfortunately, Lawrence was recently cited by the NCAA for a failed drug test and will not be participating. Other defenders like cornerback Trayvon Mullen or junior linebacker Tre Lamar will need to pick up some of the slack.The Crimson Tide managed to fend off Oklahoma last week by racking up points quickly and basically spending the rest of the game defending that lead. With sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, this isn’t your typical Alabama team that depends on running the ball. Like Clemson, they can put up points in the passing game. Also like Clemson, they don’t have many draft-eligible prospects at the skill positions. Senior running back Damien Harris is still around, but he’s been sharing carries with two of his teammates. Tight end Irv Smith Jr. is undersized at 241 pounds but flashes elite athleticism. On the offensive line Authentic Kyle Williams Jersey , there’s tackle Jonah Williams and center Ross Pierschbacher, who we’ll see at the Senior Bowl.The Crimson Tide defense has first-round talent at every level. The highlight is defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, a pass-rushing phenom and likely top-five pick. His line-mate Raekwon Davis isn’t as impactful, but may be the better run defender. The linebackers are led by inside linebacker Mack Wilson, who never really lived up to his potential. In the secondary, Deionte Thompson looks like an ideal center fielder in the mold of former Buckeye Malik Hooker.Buffalo Bills claim OG Ike Boettger http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/phillip-gaines-jersey , waive CB Ryan Lewis The Buffalo Bills made a pair of corresponding roster moves on Wednesday, releasing cornerback Ryan Lewis and claiming guard Ike Boettger off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs.Boettger was waived on Tuesday following the Kansas City Chiefs’ Week 1 game. Kansas City had to make room for tight end Demetrius Harris, who was coming off the league’s suspended list. Boettger was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bills in 2018 and spent all offseason in Buffalo before final roster cuts. He was claimed by the Chiefs the next day.Likewise, cornerback Ryan Carter was released by the New England Patriots on roster cutdown day and lasted just over a week in Buffalo. This might be good news for rookie CB Taron Johnson’s injury. The Bills have only five cornerbacks including Johnson, who left the field with an injury in Buffalo’s season-opening loss.Boettger’s place on the Bills seems odd. Buffalo already has a backup interior lineman in Russell Bodine and a rookie backup in Wyatt Teller. With Marshall Newhouse and Conor McDermott as reserve tackles, Buffalo has ten offensive lineman on the roster now.
Topic: Buffalo Bills rookies had ups and downs against Los Angeles Chargers
Posted: Wednesday, February 27, 2019 9:20:59 PM
The Buffalo Bills sank to 0-2 on Sunday courtesy of Phillip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers. Josh Allen’s first NFL start was a mixed bag while Tremaine Edmunds struggled with indecision on several big plays by the offense. More about the performance of the Bills’ entire 2018 rookie class below.QB Josh AllenThe first-rounder played like a rookie against the Chargers Authentic Tre'Davious White Jersey , while mixing in a fair amount of “wow” throws to keep it interesting. Allen was a bit gun-shy in the first half and was careful not to take many risks with the football, especially when the down and distance wasn’t favorable. Brian Daboll mixed in some quick, short throws to the running back to get the rookie up to speed early. Unfortunately, the lack of a running game meant that Allen was put in some difficult situations early and he struggled on third downs. The gloves came off, however Womens Rafael Bush Jersey , when the team was down 28-3. Allen uncorked an unbelievable throw to Charles Clay that took an equally unbelievable play by Derwin James to break up. Then Allen threw an absolute bomb to Zay Jones down the sideline. Allen was much more aggressive in the second half, including two ill-advised throws that resulted in interceptions. Overall, an up-and-down day for the 7th overall pick.LB Tremaine EdmundsEdmunds clearly struggles with any type of misdirection in the backfield and the Chargers took full advantage on Sunday. On a 16-yard reverse to Austin Ekler early in the second quarter and on the Chargers third touchdown of the day, the offense’s use of some sort of fake in the backfield got Edmunds to pause just enough to break off a big play. It’s not that the rookie lacks speed, it’s that his speed can’t make up for his mental mistakes. After the Phillip Gaines injury http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/charles-clay-jersey , Buffalo was forced to play much more base defense, and it left Edmunds severely exposed when lined up in coverage against wide receivers in the slot. Like Allen, Edmunds needs to continue taking his lumps while learning on the job.DT Harrison PhillipsA largely quiet day again for the third-rounder as he was only on field for 19 snaps, or 33% of the overall defensive plays. With only 3 total tackles and 1 solo tackle, Phillips really could use a break-out game.CB Taron JohnsonJohnson was inactive for the day as he continues to rehab his shoulder injury suffered against the Baltimore Ravens. In addition to Johnson Womens Star Lotulelei Jersey , fellow rookies G Wyatt Teller, G Ike Boettger and WR Ray-Ray McCloud were all inactive. S Siran NealNeal saw only three snaps on defense and only recorded a single tackle. WR Robert FosterFoster was on the field for about 50% of the offensive snaps and had a nifty toss-sweep run late in the first quarter that gained about 12 yards. Then he wasn’t targeted again until the final drive of the game on a 33-yard completion from Allen. Foster should get more opportunities as the season goes on.P Corey BojorquezIn his home debut, Bojorquez punted five times for an average distance of 44.6 yards, with a long of 54. His best punt came in the middle of the second quarter, being able to punt from his own 20-yard line to the opposite 20-yard line while leaving plenty of height for the coverage team to wrap up the returner immediately.Week 4 power rankings: The Bills aren't last The Buffalo Bills made a statement win over the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday. Last week Womens Shaq Lawson Jersey , the national media all had the Bills cut out as the worst team in the NFL and didn't give them much of a chance to move out of that spot. This week, it’s a different story.ESPN moves the Bills up two spots, from 32nd to 30th and clearly aren't convinced the Bills will keep this type of play up for the rest of the season.“The Bills’ offense has gone three-and-out on 54 percent of drives this season, on pace to be the highest rate for any team in the past 15 seasons. Part of the reason is that Bills quarterbacks are completing an NFL-low 50 percent of their passes. -- Koontz”ESPN had the Vikings drop from sixth last week to ninth this week. NFL.com jumps the Bills five spots from last week to 27th and credit their success to the defense’s ability to create turnovers, and Josh Allen’s ability to stay efficient under pressure. The Vikings have a sizable decline from third last week to ninth this week. Sports Illustrated’s Monday Morning Quarterback took another eight of their writers to vote on this week’s power rankings. The Bills went up to 27th in this poll as well and didn't receive a single last-place vote. One voter had the Bills up five more spots to 22nd. The Vikings drop two spots here Womens Corey Bojorquez Jersey , from fourth to sixth. CBS Sports is the third and final site to move the Bills into the 27th spot and they're excited about Josh Allen’s future with the Bills.“Give them a ton of credit for an impressive road victory at Minnesota. They have their quarterback in Josh Allen.”The Vikings had a big drop off from fifth to 15th.Finally, at SB Nation, the Bills moved up four spots to 28th and the Vikings dropped from fourth to sixth.

Cowboys vs Texans inactives: Randy Gregory good to go Womens Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , Lamar Miller active Are you ready for some football? Texans at NRG Stadium. Let’s take a look at the inactives list for both teams to see who will be up and who will be down. Dallas Cowboys inactivesNo real surprises here for the Dallas Cowboys. There was some speculation around Randy Gregory and whether or not he would be ready to play after missing a practice this week after heading to Chicago for a visit with one of the league’s medical doctors. David Irving has returned from suspension but has yet to have a full practice session. Irving was eligible to play this week, but missed practice on Thursday and Friday due to a family issue. The Cowboys, who are already thin at defensive tackle Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey , could have used Irving tonight against a week Texans’ offensive line.Houston Texans inactives Similar to the Cowboys, the Texans inury report holds no real surprises. Lamar Miller, Will Fuller Authentic Terrance Williams Jersey , Keke Coutee, and Shareece Wright were all questionable to play, but from the looks of the inactive list Womens Allen Hurns Jersey , all will be giving it a go. The Cowboys will catch a break with Aaron Colvin being inactive. Colvin has been a starter at cornerback for the Texans through four weeks. That group with Colvin in has struggled quiet a bit, and now with him down, it seems as if a even worse player will be in his place http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/kavon-frazier-jersey , that is something the Cowboys offense could potentially take advantage of.Kickoff is just around the corner, as the Cowboys try to improve to 3-2 on the season and take lead of the NFC East at least for one more day. Let’s do this Cowboys Nation. One of the biggest decisions that the 2018 Dallas Cowboys made came during their bye week when they fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander.Alexander was in his first season with the team and seven games in hadn’t shown enough to warrant staying around. Dallas chose to move on from him and promote former offensive lineman Marc Colombo to oversee the position with help from Hudson Houck.Colombo was in the final year of his contract with the Cowboys which started speculation that he could go elsewhere for next season. That will not be the case as Colombo will indeed return to Dallas for 2019.Colombo got quite a lot out of a Cowboys offensive line that at times operated without Tyron Smith and Zack Martin. That’s not to mention that they didn’t have Travis Frederick for the entire season. He’s a coach on the rise and it’s great to see that he’ll return to the team.For what it’s worth Travis Frederick is slated to return next season so all sorts of reinforcements will be returning to protect Dak Prescott. With coaching changes/news starting to trickle out it’s best to buckle up for anything else that might pop up. Custom Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys

difficulty getting over the knee injury that has had him on the disabled list since July 29.Per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-shin-soo-choo-jersey , the reigning American League MVP flew back to Houston on Sunday to have his knee re-evaluated.Astros manager A.J. Hinch added that Altuve wouldn't be activated for the team's two-game series against the San Francisco Giants starting Monday."I think it feels like (a setback) only because we've eliminated San Francisco as a possibility," Hinch said. "I don't know that we can consider it a setback other than we can consider that he needs more time to heal."Injuries had never been much of a problem for the second baseman in his career, averaging 154.2 games played in his six full seasons in the majors. He only missed 22 total games in the past four seasons, earning four All-Star selections and an MVP award in this span.Unfortunately, he hasn't been as lucky in 2018, as a knee injury forced him to go on the disabled list for the first time in his career.The latest injury also adds to what has been somewhat of a disappointing year for the 28-year-old.While he is still playing at an All-Star level with a .329 average, his nine home runs and 14 stolen bases are a bit of a step back from what we have seen in the past. For instance, he hit 24 homers in each of the previous two seasons and stole 32 bases in 2017.Houston has enough depth and offensive firepower to survive a short stretch without Altuve, but it would be difficult for the team to defend its World Series title without its most consistent player.Utility player Marwin Gonzalez should be able to handle second base duties until the superstar is back on the field. TORONTO (AP) — Kendrys Morales kept up his hot hitting and sent the Baltimore Orioles south of the border with another loss in Canada.Morales homered for the fourth consecutive game Prince Fielder Jersey , Thomas Pannone and two relievers combined on a two-hitter and the Blue Jays beat Baltimore 6-0 on Wednesday, completing a 10-game season sweep of the Orioles in Toronto.“A lot of those games have been close,” Baltimore right-hander David Hess said of his team’s winless record in Toronto. “They just kind of found ways that we haven’t so far to pull out a win.”Devon Travis had a three-run shot in the eighth inning as the Blue Jays blew open the game with a five-run outburst against Miguel Castro, who uncorked three wild pitches and didn’t retire any of the five batters he faced.Morales hit a two-out drive off Hess (2-8) in the seventh, his fifth home run in the past four games and 19th of the season.“He really regrouped after that slow start and he’s been steady,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Morales, who hit .178 in April.Making his first major league start after four relief appearances, the left-handed Pannone (1-0) pitched six no-hit innings before Baltimore’s Trey Mancini reached on a ground-ball single to begin the seventh.“I didn’t really hold myself to any expectations,” Pannone said. “Just wanted to execute a good game plan and give my team a chance to win and I feel like I did that today.”Mancini advanced to third when left fielder Teoscar Hernandez was charged with an error on Adam Jones’ liner http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-adrian-beltre-jersey , but Pannone escaped unscathed by getting Tim Beckham and Craig Gentry to ground out before Renato Nunez popped up.Orioles manager Buck Showalter criticized his team’s offensive approach in the inning.“We had second and third and nobody out and you’re getting in that mode of trying to hit a three-run homer instead of getting the run across,” Showalter said.Blue Jays center fielder Randal Grichuk made a sensational diving catch to retire Orioles catcher Austin Wynns for the first out of the sixth. Baltimore’s Cedric Mullins followed with a bunt, but Pannone pounced on the ball and made the throw to first.Gibbons used the word “sneaky” to describe Pannone’s stuff.“That ball jumps on you,” Gibbons said. “He did a hell of a job.”Baltimore put runners at first and second with two outs against Ryan Tepera in the top of the eighth, but right fielder Billy McKinney made a sliding catch on Mancini’s sinking liner to retire the side. Joe Biagini struck out the side in the ninth.Hess was perfect through four innings. Morales reached on a ground-ball single through the shift to begin the fifth.Hess allowed one run and three hits and set career-highs with seven strikeouts in seven innings.“He commanded the ball down in the zone,” Showalter said. “You could tell he had an idea about where the ball was going and what he was trying to do.”Hess is 0-7 since his most recent win, May 25 at Tampa Bay.Baltimore has lost four straight and 11 of 13. The Orioles are 1-12 against the Blue Jays this season with six games remaining, all in Baltimore.POWER BALLTravis became the 10th Blue Jays hitter to reach double-digits in home runs this season, a team record.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — .Led by Christian Yelich’s silky smooth game Lance Parrish Jersey , the Brewers are closing in on the playoffs.Yelich homered and drove in a career-high six runs, and surging Milwaukee hurt St. Louis’ postseason chances with a 12-4 victory over the Cardinals on Tuesday.“Just trying to help the boys out any way you can,” Yelich said. “A lot of guys came through in some big situations for us. That was a lot of fun tonight.”Ryan Braun went deep twice and Jesus Aguilar also connected as Milwaukee lowered its magic number for clinching a playoff spot to one. But the Brewers are thinking bigger after their fifth win in six games put them just a half-game back of the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs.“I think the division is kind of what’s on our mind right now,” manager Craig Counsell said, “and I think we’ve earned that with the last two days.”Milwaukee (91-67) leads Colorado by 3½ games for the top wild card. St. Louis (87-71) dropped a half-game behind Colorado for the second NL wild card after the Rockies routed Philadelphia 10-3.“We have four games to play, and we feel good about the club we have and the kind of guys we have and the character we have and the talent we have,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “We’ll control what we can control and we’ll get after it and let the chips fall.”Following Wednesday’s series finale, Milwaukee closes the regular season with a weekend set at home against lowly Detroit. St. Louis also is off Thursday before beginning a three-game series against the slumping Cubs at Wrigley Field.Yadier Molina hit a three-run homer for the Cardinals, who had won six of seven before their 6-4 loss to Milwaukee on Monday night. Marcell Ozuna went 3 for 3 with a walk.St. Louis left the bases loaded in the fifth and seventh innings when Jedd Gyorko came up empty each time. Third baseman Mike Moustakas turned an inning-ending double play on Gyorko’s chopper near the bag in the fifth, and Gyorko flied to right for the final out of the seventh.“This one’s kind of on me,” Gyorko said. “I’ve got to find a way to get the job done in those situations.”Milwaukee scored 11 runs with two out, including its first six. Yelich came up with the bases loaded in the fourth and tripled into the gap in right-center, lifting the Brewers to a 6-0 lead. After Lorenzo Cain was intentionally walked with two out in the ninth, Yelich hit a three-run drive to center.“It’s part of the game, but at the same time, it’s a challenge http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-omar-infante-jersey ,” Yelich said of the walk to Cain. “As a competitor, you want to answer the challenge.”Yelich is batting .346 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 22 games this month. He has 33 homers, 104 RBIs, 110 runs and 181 hits on the year, all career highs.Braun, who won the MVP award in 2011, said he thinks Yelich is about to join the club.“I can’t foresee a scenario in which he doesn’t win it,” Braun said. “He’s been so incredible for us in every facet of the game.”Taylor Williams (1-3), the second of six Milwaukee relievers after Gio Gonzalez pitched four innings, got three outs for the win. The Brewers used nine pitchers in their series-opening victory.Cardinals rookie Austin Gomber (6-2) was tagged for five runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings.LONG GONECardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter and Shildt were ejected in the seventh inning. Carpenter argued with home plate umpire Will Little after he was called out on strikes, and then was thrown out as he walked toward the dugout.“I understand the importance of staying in these games,” Carpenter said. “So when I get thrown out of the game as I’m walking away, that’s something I have a problem with.”TRAINER’S ROOMBrewers: All-Star reliever Jeremy Jeffress was available after he missed the series opener because of neck spasms.Cardinals: 2B Kolten Wong returned to the starting lineup for the first time since he left Friday’s victory over San Francisco with cramps in both hamstrings. He struck out swinging as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning of Monday’s loss. “Obviously at this point of the season no one’s 100 percent,” he said. “For me as long as I know I can run and I can play I’m going to be out there.”UP NEXTBrewers right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (14-8, 3.61 ERA) and Cardinals right-hander John Gant (7-6, 3.53 ERA) pitch Wednesday night in the series finale. Chacin is 0-3 with a 4.34 ERA in four September starts. Gant lasted just 2 2/3 innings in his last outing http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-travis-wood-jersey , yielding one run and four hits Friday against the Giants. DENVER (AP) — Matt Holliday wore cleats from 2007. The Coors Field mojo almost felt straight from that decade, too.When Colorado made a charge to its only World Series appearance, it was behind late-season wins just like the dramatic one the Rockies pulled out on this throwback Thursday. Ian Desmond hit a two-run, two-out homer in the ninth inning, and the Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 4-3 in the return of the 38-year-old outfielder Holliday.“When something special is happening, you find ways to win games,” said Holliday, who wore a pair of black spikes that the clubhouse manager dug out of storage from ’07 since Holliday had only a gray pair. “Those are important wins and a huge swing by Ian.”Desmond lined an 88-mph splitter from reliever Kirby Yates (4-3) over the fence in left after Trevor Story singled earlier in the ninth and stole second. It was Desmond’s second career walk-off homer. His other was May 2, 2012, against Arizona.“It felt good. It felt good to win the series,” Desmond said. “Winning a series is really important this time of year.”Yates said the pitch to Desmond was one that didn’t “have any bite to it.”“I got him the other night,” Yates said. “He got me today.”Holliday was in Colorado’s starting lineup for the first time in a decade after having his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque before the game. He finished 0 for 3 — he was lifted for a defensive replacement in the seventh — but had a long drive in the fifth that he thought was gone. He even went into a little hop.“I remembered it was a tornado blowing in from left field,” Holliday cracked. “I hit that good.”The Rockies overcame a baserunning blunder early and a costly error late to take two of three games from the Padres and move within one game of first-place Arizona in the NL West.Jose Pirela came through with a bases-loaded, one-out hit up the middle off reliever Bryan Shaw to give the Padres a 3-2 lead. It was just after Story misplayed a slow roller.Chris Rusin (1-2) worked a scoreless ninth to pick up the win.Kyle Freeland turned in a solid outing by allowing two runs over 6 1/3 innings in the no-decision. The 25-year-old Denver native was elated to take the field with Holliday.“That’s a guy I looked up to big time, when I was in middle school and high school,” Freeland said.On a blustery day Jordan Zimmermann Jersey , Joey Lucchesi kept the Rockies in check for six innings. The left-hander allowed two runs and struck out six. His only major mistake was allowing a solo homer to David Dahl.Lucchesi worked his way out of a messy situation in the third courtesy of a mistake on the bases by the Rockies. With no outs and runners on first and third, Dahl broke for home on Freeland’s bunt, only to be thrown out. Charlie Blackmon then hit into a double play to end the threat.It was an emotional day for Holliday, who returned to where his career began. The team played the song “Holiday Road” from “National Lampoon’s Vacation” before the game. He also received a standing ovation before his first at-bat — a groundout to second.Holliday hasn’t played in the majors since last season with the New York Yankees. He suited up the first five seasons of his career for Colorado, hitting .290 as a rookie in 2004 and helping lead the Rockies to their only World Series appearance in 2007.“I’m grateful to be back,” said Holliday, who hit .319 with 128 homers for Colorado from 2004-08.TRAINER’S ROOMPadres: INF Christian Villanueva was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured right middle finger. INF Carlos Asuaje was recalled from Triple-A El Paso.MYERS UPDATESan Diego infielder Wil Myers wasn’t in the lineup after suffering a cut on his nose the day before. He was working on grounders at third during batting practice when a ball hit him. He entered as a pinch-hitter in the seventh and drew a walk. He hopes to play Friday.“Hopefully get back over at third again and pretend like it never happened,” Myers said.UP NEXTPadres: Open a three-game series Friday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. LHP Clayton Richard (7-10, 5.11 ERA) goes for the Padres and LHP Rich Hill (5-4, 3.73) for the Dodgers.Rockies: RHP Antonio Senzatela (4-3, 4.47) takes the mound Friday when the Rockies start a three-game series versus St. Louis. The Cardinals will throw RHP Miles Mikolas (13-3, 2.80).

hen they finally won in 2004 Johnny Bench Jersey , sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals and never trailing in the four-game series.That 2004 triumph came after a series of heartbreaking losses in the Fall Classic. They had lost a pair of heartbreaking seven-game World Series decisions to the Cardinals in 1946 and 1967, and Boston dropped perhaps the most famous World Series when they fell in seven games to the Cincinnati Reds in 1975.That Cincinnati team is considered one of the sport's all-time great teams, as the team from the Queen City featured catcher Johnny Bench, second baseman Joe Morgan, hit king Pete Rose, RBI boss Tony Perez and superb outfielder Ken Griffey Sr.That series featured Carlton Fisk's famous game-winning home run in the 12th inning of Game 6 and it took a ninth-inning bloop single in the seventh game by Morgan to give the Reds the winning margin.While the Sox could hold their heads up high after putting up a battle against Sparky Anderson's team, the 1986 World Series loss to the New York Mets was the most painful of all. Boston held a 3-2 series lead and were two runs ahead in the bottom of the 10th with two outs and nobody on base, but the Mets came back to win that game and take the seventh game in come-from-behind fashion.But since that brutal defeat, the World Series has been their personal playground. In addition to their '04 sweep of the Cardinals, they swept the Colorado Rockies in 2007 and beat St. Louis again in six games in 2013.With a 2-0 series lead against the Los Angeles Dodgers, they are 14-2 in World Series games since 2004.Boston is going to try to stretch that record to 15-2 on Friday when they confront the Dodgers in Los Angeles. The first pitch is scheduled for 8:09 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised by Fox.Mookie Betts hopes to set the tone for Boston in Game 3.David J.

Martinez, Xander Bogaerts, Andrew Benintendi and ALCS MVP Jackie Bradley Jr. Martinez has a sore ankle from an awkward turn around second base in Game 1, and his status has not been determined.The Dodgers are hoping the change in venue can help them turn things around in the series. While the Red Sox have excelled at getting a clutch two-out hit, Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts has seen his team struggle in that area.The Red Sox will send right-hander Rick Porcello to the mound to try to keep the Dodgers bats quiet, but he may have a more difficult time than southpaw David Price did in Game 2. The Dodgers are going to use their left-handed bats to try to get their power game going.Max Muncy hopes to get his power bat going in Game 3 for the Dodgers.Harry How/Getty ImagesThe Dodgers had seven batters with 21 or more home runs in the regular season, and they were led by Max Muncy's 35. Muncy will be in the lineup against Porcello, and so will Cody Bellinger, who homered in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series and won the MVP award.The Dodgers will counter with hard-throwing Walker Buehler, who was on the mound in Milwaukee in Game 7 and was quite effective. While holding down the Brewers was a noteworthy achievement, the Red Sox are the highest scoring team in baseball.The Sox are prohibitive -650 favorites to win the World Series at this point, while the Dodgers are +450 underdogs, per OddsShark. Those backing the Red Sox have to risk $650 to win $100, while Dodgers backers wager $100 to earn a profit of $450.However, the Dodgers are -160 favorites in Game 3, while the Red Sox are +135 underdogs. KANSAS CITY Dave Concepcion Jersey , Mo. (AP) — Meibrys Viloria trotted into the dugout after the sixth inning Sunday, and Royals manager Ned Yost told his recently recalled rookie catcher to help get pitcher Jorge Lopez through one more inning.So when Viloria headed to the bench after the seventh, that task successfully complete, he plopped down and began to relax. Puzzled, Yost looked at him and asked, “What are you doing?”“You said,” Viloria replied, “get him through one more inning.”Yost didn’t mean Viloria’s day was done, though. And when he went to bat in the eighth, Viloria came through with his first big league hit, a two-run double that put a nice cap on a game Lopez and the Royals dominated. The 9-1 rout of the Baltimore Orioles wrapped up a three-game sweep of the only team in the majors with a worse record than Kansas City’s own.“It feels great,” said Lopez, who allowed Jonathan Villar’s home run in the first inning but little else while striking out a career-high eight. “The defense was good and the offense has been hot.”As for Viloria, the kid behind the plate who had just arrived from Class-A Wilmington?“That kid’s something special,” Lopez said. “Communication, the game plan, we were right on it.”It was the first win for Lopez, who was part of the late-July deal with Milwaukee for third baseman Mike Moustakas Pete Rose Jersey , since Sept. 29, 2015, when he was still with the Brewers.“That’s why he was so well-thought-of and sought-after in trade,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. “The things David (Hess) has done when he’s successful, that young man did today.”Alcides Escobar also had three hits and an RBI as Kansas City piled up 14 hits, its sixth straight game with at least 10 and the longest such streak since June 24-29, 2016.Most of the damage came against Hess (3-9), who allowed five runs on nine hits and a trio of errors — all of which came after the Baltimore pitcher’s own mistakes during a dreadful third inning.The first error came with nobody out, when Hess threw the ball away trying to pick Merrifield off first base. Then, with two down, Hess tried to chase Jorge Bonifacio back to second and the ball squirreled away again. Bonifacio headed for third and second baseman Breyvic Valera tried to throw him out there, but the ball bounced away for yet another error that allowed Bonifacio to score.“The toughest thing is giving them extra bases and extra outs to work with,” Hess said. “That’s something that I’ve prided myself on throughout the minor leagues and up here as well. I’ve been able to field my position well and do what we need to do to keep guys honest out there.“I mean, they beat me at that today,” he said. “It’s something that we’re going to learn from.”STATS AND STREAKSThe Royals have won five straight, all in come-from-behind fashion, their best stretch since July 19-28, 2017. … Merrifield reached base for a career-best 22nd straight game. He also stole his 30th base http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-ken-griffey-jersey , matching Seattle’s Dee Gordon for the AL lead. … The Orioles were swept for the third time in four series. … Baltimore has lost seven straight road games.FIRST PITCHRoyals vice president Mike Swanson threw out the ceremonial first pitch to honor his 40 years in baseball. Swanson’s mother, Betty, spent nearly four decades working for the Royals and Chiefs, while her son has worked for the Rockies, Padres and Diamondbacks along with his time in Kansas City.CLOSER CONCERNSShowalter said he will try several options in the closer role after Mychael Givens blew another save Saturday night. “You’ve got to get people out, and pitch when you’re asked and take advantage of the opportunity,” Showalter said, “including Mike and some other guys.”TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: RHP Pedro Araujo (right elbow strain) will not pitch again this season. He’s been on the DL since June 11. “He’s going to be fine, I think, for next year,” Showalter said, “but I don’t think he’ll pitch in September. I don’t see any of the feedback that fits that scenario.”Royals: OF Jorge Soler (fractured left toe) experienced a setback in his rehab and will likely shut down for the remainder of the season, Yost said. Soler went on the DL on June 16, when he was hitting .265 with nine homers and 28 RBIs.UP NEXTThe Orioles head to Seattle for three games beginning Monday night, when LHP Josh Rogers (1-0, 5.40 ERA) is on the mound. The Royals begin a trip to Cleveland and Minnesota with RHP Jakob Junis (7-12, 4.53) taking the hill against the Indians on Monday night.

is league-leading total of 11陆 sacks this season are so ideal that some of his Minnesota Vikings teammates have taken to calling him "Create-A-Player Los Angeles Rams T-Shirt ," the feature on Madden NFL that allows gamers to concoct the seemingly perfect computerized prospect.Hunter's 6-foot-5, 252-pound, muscle-bound frame and 4.57-second 40-yard dash time that led all defensive linemen at the combine in his draft year would already be a handful for opposing offenses, but the strides he's made over four seasons on the mental side of the game have helped turn him into one of the league's best defensive ends with just one week elapsed past his 24th birthday.Matthew Stafford was the latest quarterback with a too-close look at Hunter's dominance, when his 3陆 sacks and fumble return for a touchdown fueled a 24-9 victory for the Vikings on Sunday over the Detroit Lions."He's improved on just being reactive," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "A lot of young defensive linemen, especially because we harp on stopping the run, they're nervous about, 'Hey, I'm going to take a chance here Los Angeles Rams Hats , because I think this is a play-action pass' or something like that. The thing I notice about Danielle, he just lets it rip now, and that's what makes him good."The Jamaica-born Hunter, who settled in the Houston area with his family at age 8, was drafted by the Vikings in the third round out of LSU in 2015 after he ended an unheralded college career by skipping his final season of eligibility.His length, speed and strength made him an obvious pro prospect , but there were league-wide concerns about his technique inconsistencies and tendency to let overthinking slow down his production. He had only 4 sacks over three years with the Tigers.The Vikings, though, relied on analytics to peg Hunter as a potential star with the right coaching and scheme. They saw a note-taking and self-motivated player who they wouldn't have to worry about doing his part.Still six months shy of his 21st birthday when he was drafted, Hunter had plenty of time to grow. In 2016 Los Angeles Rams Hoodie , he led all defensive ends in the NFL with 1 sacks and finished third overall.Last season, he overtook Brian Robison as the full-time starter opposite Everson Griffen. He signed a five-year contract extension this summer worth as much as $72 million with $40 million in guaranteed money and $15 million up front.With 37 sacks in 55 games, Hunter has fast climbed the all-time Vikings lists. With just three more sacks over Minnesota's last seven games, he'll have the second-most in a player's first four seasons with the team behind Jared Allen.Hunter is tied with Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald for the league lead with 13 tackles for loss and tied for eighth in the NFL with 15 quarterback hits. He had at least one sack in each of the five games Griffen missed earlier."It's not me alone. I've got good teammates, a good defensive line again," Hunter said after the Vikings sacked Stafford a franchise-record 10 times . "We go out there, and we work together as a team."The Vikings (5-3-1) eagerly entered their bye week with their well-decorated defense back on track following a couple of uncharacteristically soft performances over the first half of the schedule."We had things that we had to fix. We just learned from what we had done, and then we went out there and just went to execute them," Hunter said. "Just doing our jobs. Not trying to do selfish things out there."That's the foundation of Zimmer's system, a disciplined approach to honoring the run Customized Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , staying in the right pass-rush lanes and trusting nearby teammates to handle their responsibilities. This four-down-linemen scheme, though predicated on an ability to pressure the quarterback from all points, is not designed to produce high individual sack totals. Every once in a while, though, an in-the-zone performance such as the one Hunter had on Sunday comes around."Sometimes you go out there," Hunter said, "you just know you're about to beat this guy." For the last year or so, the Battle Royale genre has dominated the video game scene, and there’s no bigger game than Fortnite. And today, the NFL announced that an agreement has been struck with developer Epic Games and a variety of NFL-themed items will be available for purchase including team uniforms:Other items available for purchase will include “football-themed emotes www.authenticslosangelesrams.com , harvesting tools, gliders, and even a referee outfit,” according to the NFL press release. As far as the uniforms are concerned, the player gets to choose a number (1-99) and can be male or female. So yes, your dreams of wearing 69 in a Rams uniform can come true.Items will be available for purchase on November 9 when the item shop refreshes at 4 pm PT. Any further details are left to speculation until that time. It appears that only home uniforms are available (for what it’s worth, it seems like they went with the “throwback” colors for the Rams, based on what I can tell in the video). And when Fortnite ran a World Cup uniform event in the summer, multiple character styles were available (blonde-haired white male, brown-haired female Los Angeles Rams T-Shirt , African-American male and female just to name a few) while the country and number were customizable after purchase. This would mean that Kansas City Chiefs fans could switch to a more appropriate team jersey after their inevitable first-round exit in the playoffs. Again, this is purely speculation from my experience playing the game.So, Ram fans, where is your favorite place to drop in? Gritty Gridiron? Pigskin Palace? Maybe even Lombardi Lake?
