MINNEAPOLIS -- Nate Mason had 15 points and seven assists, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers had five players score in double figures in an 86-74 victory on Friday against Louisiana-Lafayette. Jose Iglesias Jersey .Dupree McBrayer added 15 points for Minnesota, which made 10 3-pointers and shot 40 percent from long distance. Amir Coffey, part of a three-guard starting unit with Mason and McBrayer, scored 13 points.We have a more complete team, Gophers coach Richard Pitino said. I think thats very, very evident when you look at our guys. Its got a lot of balance. Theyre good kids, they want to win. They want to get people talking good about them. Hopefully tonight helped that.Bryce Washington scored 16 points and had 10 rebounds for the Ragin Cajuns, who couldnt stay with the Gophers while shooting 31.9 percent from the field.Minnesota committed 19 turnovers to 15 for Louisiana-Lafayette and was outrebounded 42-39, but the Gophers were helped with an efficient shooting attack from the outside to lead by as many as 27 in the game.The Cajuns closed to 11 near the end of the first half, but Minnesota scored the final 11 points of the half, including a buzzer-beating 3 by Mason.You can see from all the new guys that they bring a different dimension to the team. Mason said. Once we get comfortable in the season, I feel like these guys are going to produce.BIG PICTURELouisiana-Lafayette: Trying to replace 66.2 percent of their scoring last season, the opener against a Big Ten opponent was unkind to the Cajuns. They shot just 27.5 percent from the field and were just 5 of 17 from 3 (29.4 percent) in the first half. Washington, one of the three returning starters, didnt attempt a field goal in the first half. Freshman Justin Miller came off the bench to score 21 points.Minnesota: The Gophers had a balanced effort as they try to discover their core this season with several new players joining coach Richard Pitinos team. Coffey was the Minnesota Mr. Basketball last season. Center Reggie Lynch finally played his first game with the Gophers after transferring from Illinois State last season. Akeem Springs, a transfer from Milwaukee, had 11 points and hit three 3s off the bench.HIGH ON COFFEYCoffey made his much-anticipated debut. Minnesotas Mr. Basketball last season, the freshman was 3 of 5 shooting and 2 of 3 from beyond the arc. The 6-foot-8, 195-pound guard had three assists and four turnovers. But just one turnover came in the second half.I think he just adds a very difficult dimension for teams from a defensive side of it, from how they want to guard him, because hes so tall and hes such a skilled passer, and he really moves well, Pitino said.GETTING EXPOSURELouisiana-Lafayette was also breaking in several new players. To end the second half, the Cajuns had three freshmen and two redshirt freshmen on the court.Weve just got some growing pains that were going to have to fight through, especially with the foul trouble, Marlin said. We couldnt make 3s and just struggled first time out for a lot of these kids.After 12 turnovers in the first half, Louisiana-Lafayette had just three in the second half. The Cajuns also posted 20 offensive rebounds.UP NEXTLouisiana-Lafayettes inexperienced roster will get used to playing on the road. The Cajuns start the season with two road games for the first time since the 2011-12 season when they play at Montana State on Nov. 14.Minnesotas home-heavy schedule against smaller schools continues Nov. 14 against Texas-Arlington. In all, the Gophers play their first six games at home and 12 of the first 14 at Williams Arena. Joe Jimenez Jersey . -- Playing time has been limited for Maxim Tissot this season, so the Montreal Impact defender made the most of his first scoring opportunity on Saturday. Dixon Machado Jersey .05 million next season unless Graham and the Saints subsequently agree on a long-term deal. The designation was released Monday after the deadline passed for NFL teams to use franchise or transition tags on players becoming free agents. http://www.tigersgearshop.com/Tigers-Leonys-Martin-Kids-Jersey/ . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. This story appears in ESPN The Magazines December 12 issue. Subscribe today!Go back to Week 1. Raiders vs. Saints. Its the beginning of the fourth quarter, and Oakland is losing 24-13. Third-year quarterback Derek Carr takes a snap, drops back a few steps and then surveys the field--calmly, like a father waiting for his children to appear on the steps of their school. After a moment passes, he slings a beautifully arched pass to wide receiver Amari Cooper, who has somehow crept behind the Saints secondary. Its a 43-yard gain and another highlight-reel throw for Carr.Now go back and watch again. Instead of waiting for Carr to release the ball, pay attention to everything that happens beforehand. Watch the Raiders tackles shoot their arms out and manhandle their defenders, while the guards refuse to cede an inch. Watch the chasm that opens up between the offensive line and the quarterback, an expanse of green that never seems to close. Watch the clock as the seconds tick by.Thats what Derek Carr remembers from that day. The time and the space and, more than anything, the smacking of pads and the crunching of bones and the terrible cries of mountain-sized men being knocked around by his blockers. He remembers dropping behind his offensive line as thunderous collisions unfolded in front of him, bearing witness to a level of violence that still leaves him awestruck.You can see it on film and you can see it on TV and you can see it in person, he says. But when youre behind it?Behind 10-foot eyelashes, his blue eyes widen.You can hear it.There comes a point in every story about Derek Carr when his older brothers name is invoked, typically as source material for the young quarterbacks innate gifts -- and, until recently, his perceived flaws. David Carr, the Houston Texans No. 1 overall pick in the 2002 draft, famously went bust. When Derek entered the draft in 2014, he had put up Heisman-worthy numbers at Fresno State, but Davids story lingered in scouting reports like a bad Yelp review, and several QB-starved teams (including Houston) passed on the younger brother, sending him tumbling into the second round.Their loss. After two and a half seasons with the Raiders, Derek has bloomed into a viable MVP candidate, steering his team to seven wins on the back of an exhilarating aerial attack. Heading into Monday nights tilt with the Texans in Mexico City, he has thrown 17 TDs and just three interceptions, a ratio that puts him in elite company and could set him up for a mammoth new deal. When the ball is in his hands late in the game, everybody believes something big is gonna happen, says Matt Hasselbeck, a former NFL quarterback who now works as an ESPN analyst. I saw that with Brett Favre when I was his teammate.And so it is that Dereks story has finally subsumed his origin myth -- and that his brothers failure, once an indelible part of that record, has faded away like a discredited theory. But to ignore it would also be a mistake. Because while Carr has risen on the strength of his unique talents, he has soared because of the giants who stand in front of him -- those violent actors who buy him room to breathe, a luxury David never experienced as a young quarterback. Ive been able to see complete, total opposite sides of it, Carr says. I saw my brother in Houston have nothing. And I have our offensive line, which I think is the best in the NFL.The contrast is astonishing. David, who played behind a rotating cast of human turnstiles on the then newly formed Texans, was sacked a record 76 times during his rookie year, which is more than Derek has been taken down since entering the NFL. This year the Raiders offensive line has allowed just 11 sacks and 21 quarterback hits, ranking first in the league through Week 10. Theyve held up against stiff competition. The Broncos dominant front seven, which entered their Nov. 6 game against the Raiders with the best pressure percentage of any team since 2008, according to ESPN Stats & Information, hassled Carr on a mere 21 percent of his dropbacks, Denvers worst performance to that point of the season.To hear Carr tell it, battling Von Miller & Co. was like flying over traffic in a private jet. We just played the best pass rushers in the NFL and it was the most comfortable Ive felt, he says. The Raiders began building the current iteration of the line in 2014, the year rookie Carr became the teams starter. Right tackle Menelik Watson was already on the roster; GM Reggie McKenzie added left tackle Donald Penn in free agency, then selected Gabe Jackson, the teams right guard, in the draft. The Raiders signed veteran center Rodney Hudson in 2015, then splurged a year later on Kelechi Osemele, arguably the leagues most formidable guard. To ensure that Osemele could continue playing inside, McKenzie re-signed Penn, and the line that fans call Carr Insurance was born.This influx of talent has come at a price. Thanks in part to their quarterbacks cheap contract, the Raiders currently devote $37.7 million in cap dollars to the offensive line, $3 million more than what any other team pays. When asked if hes aware of how expensive his line is, Carr nods. As it should be, he says. Mr. McKenzie told me from the beginning, when I was named the starter, he said, Were gonna build this thing around you. They see that Im valuable to them. They want to protect me.Donald Penn remembers the first time he saw Derek Carr at training camp. As he and the other starters looked on, the rookie quarterback fired bombs to the Raiders backups, showing off his crisp, flawless throwing motion. I was like, This kids got something about him, Penn says. He carried himself with a swagger.Penn -- older, tattooed, a little brash -- would seem to have little in common with Carr, who is almost comically wholesome, the sort of athlete destined to star in ads for milk and comfortable jeans. Ive never heard him say a cuss word! Penn says. But Carr, who grew up hanging around David in locker rooms for more than a decade (when he was 6, he says, he used to eat lunch with his brother in the high school cafeteria), has always slid into new groups with ease. When he became the Raiders starter, he began attending the offensive line meetings and tagging along for their steakhouse dinners, gawkiing as his massive teammates overloaded the table with food. Lance Parrish Jersey. He can recite information about their hobbies and their families, and hes shared his strong Christian faith with them. He often tells them he loves them.While Carr has bonded with the entire group, hes grown closest with Hudson, the center who sets protections during games. Carr says he always pulls up a chair next to Hudson during team meetings and that the two of them will often stay up late on Saturday nights, bouncing ideas off each other in the team hotel. We just go to another level in our discussions -- stuff we dont want everyone to hear because their brains might explode, he says with a laugh.Hudson, a soft-spoken Alabama native, says hell be out at dinner, look at his phone and see that DC has been texting him videos of plays. Were in constant communication, he says.The Raiders offensive line is unique in several ways, aside from being the most expensive. Its starting unit is composed entirely of black players; Penn says theyve hung posters of the NCAA-championship-winning 1966 Texas Western basketball team and the Tuskegee Airmen, other groups that shared similar distinctions, in their practice room. Its also the heaviest line in football, with the average lineman weighing in at 324.2 pounds. That runs counter to the trend of teams employing lighter, more athletic linemen who can move side to side while blocking.Raiders O-line coach Mike Tice says he wants blockers who are brainy and athletic, but he doesnt deny that hes assembled a group of road-grading sledgehammers. The lines muscle was on full display in the Denver game, when the Raiders averaged 5.1 yards per rush. At one point, the team ran the same play 10 times in a row, simply overpowering the Broncos defensive line with brute force.In addition to tallying knockdowns (Jackson, the right guard, is known for racking up pancake blocks), Tice also tracks takedowns, which occur when a lineman uses his hands to bring down a rusher. People say you cant be physical pass-protecting -- they think you can only be physical in the run game. I disagree, he says. Even if were passing, I still want to knock guys down and keep the quarterback clean. Carr is known for his lightning-quick release, but Tice wants his line to buy him enough time so that he can set his feet before taking deep shots, especially against defenses that play tight coverage. We pride ourselves on that, he says.When a quarterback can step into his throws and hes got an arm like Derek? He chuckles. People are in trouble.When Carr tells stories about his linemen mauling defensive players, he omits the opponents names to be respectful. The 25-year-old is incredibly polite and relentlessly positive. It sometimes seems he was manufactured in a lab for franchise quarterbacks, designed to appeal to GMs and grandmothers alike. So its a little jarring when he gets fired up in response to a question about his brothers career in Houston. I feel so bad for him because their team sucked, he says. (If that seems milquetoast, consider that sucked might be the closest thing to profanity in Carrs vocabulary.) Thats a team you dream of playing. The Raiders, if we wouldve played that team -- it wouldve been ridiculous. We wouldve looked forward to that.In high school, Carr was asked to write a paper making an argument on any topic. He elected to write about why the Texans shouldnt trade his brother. What quarterback wouldnt have struggled, young Derek wrote, with such a feeble supporting cast? He says David wouldve absolutely thrived behind the Raiders line. If I was on that Houston Texans team, I dont know if my body wouldve held up, he says. These days, when Carr sees quarterbacks like Russell Wilson and Sam Bradford scrambling behind slipshod protection, he cringes. Honestly, I feel for them, he says. Im so thankful for what I have -- what we have.Its impossible to overstate the impact that offensive line play has on the development of a young quarterback. Just look at Dallas, where rookie Dak Prescott is thriving. While Prescott is undeniably talented, he has also been blessed with the opportunity to throw passes behind a battalion of human tanks. Meanwhile, fellow rookie Carson Wentz struggled in Philadelphia after Lane Johnson, the Eagles stud right tackle, was suspended and replaced with an inexperienced blocker.David Carr, who now works for the NFL Network, says that, after being repeatedly sacked and hit, he grew wary of his protection and gradually developed a skittishness that took permanent hold in his psyche. He compares being an NFL rookie to childhood -- a little boy or girl who grows up without encountering danger is more likely to become fearless. Its like that with quarterbacks, he says. If youre never in a situation where its a complete disaster, you can develop at a normal rate.He sees that growth in Derek. In college, the younger Carr completed 72 percent of his passes in a clean pocket but just 29 percent when under duress, according to ESPN Stats & Information. During his first two years in the NFL, he posted QBR ratings of 9.7 when pressured and 7.8 under duress. This year his QBR when pressured has risen to 41.4, which was eighth best in the NFL heading into Week 11.Because Carr mostly avoids contact, hes learned not to fear it, even during the rare plays when his linemen get pushed around. Theyve brainwashed me, he says with a laugh. As hes grown more composed and intrepid, hes become comfortable making adjustments on the fly. Take, for example, that throw to Cooper, the 43-yard completion in the Saints game in Week 1. Amari wasnt even supposed to get the ball, he says. But because they protected me for so long, I saw that no one was going anywhere. So I looked off the safety for, like, three seconds, and he had to take the bait. That ball never shouldve been completed against that coverage.Going forward, Carr says, he plans to continue taking more risks on the field, trying his hand at creative looks and passes. Its helped me take my game to another level, he says. In Oakland, he has the freedom to experiment -- and the time, and the space.

Victor Moses Jersey . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. Cesc Fabregas Jersey . JOHNS, N. http://www.chelseafcproshop.com/Kids-Ola-Aina-Jersey/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State paid tribute Saturday to Joe Paterno on the 50th anniversary of his first game, despite criticism that the ceremonies are insensitive to victims in the universitys sex abuse scandal.Early in the second quarter in the matchup with in-state rival Temple, Beaver Stadium announcer Dean DeVore directed an announced 100,420 fans attention to two high-definition video boards for a two-minute video featuring highlights of Paternos career.Another video played in the third quarter, this one dedicated to Paterno and his widow Sue, and it featured their $4 million donation put toward expanding the library and local hospital.As soon as Paternos familiar image -- shirt and tie, thick glasses and rolled-up pants- appeared, fans erupted and kept cheering as DeVore read from a statement highlighting Paternos commitment to student-athletes and academics.Before he became head coach in 1966, Joe Paterno spoke about recruiting more football players who were exceptional students, DeVore said. He was determined to bring to Penn State students who could earn a world-class education and graduate and play football at the highest level.Paternos Grand Experiment, which placed emphasis on academics and proved athletes could also be top students, is a source of pride for Penn Staters who credit Paterno for giving the university an identity to be proud of.The weekends festivities, including a non-university event to commemorate the coach organized by Paternos family and former players on Friday night, have fueled debate over whether Paterno should be celebrated in any way after his role in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.Sandusky coached on Paternos staff for three decades until 1999. Paterno said before his death from lung cancer in 2012 that, with the benefit of hindsight, wished hed done more to stop Sandusky.In May, unsealed court documents said a victim complained to Paterno about Sandusky in 1976 and was rebuffed. The universitys president, Eric Barron, has said the allegation was not substantiated in court or tested by any other process.Sandusky was conviicted on 45 of 48 charges in June 2012 and is serving a 30- to 60-year sentence. Eduardo Jersey. Paterno was never charged with a crime related to the scandal.Tom Kline, the attorney for the first of Sanduskys victims to reach a settlement with Penn State, said in a statement that those celebrating Paternos accomplishments should remain mindful of his role in the scandal.While Penn State has chosen to officially celebrate the achievements of Joe Paterno, of which there have been many, no one should forget the failings which caused so much pain and anguish to the victims of Jerry Sandusky who have suffered so much for so long, Kline said.Moving forward has proven a difficult challenge for Penn State, requiring leaders to balance distancing the university from the scandal while juggling the wishes of Paternos ardent supporters who believe he was a scapegoat.Prominent former players have led the defense of their coach, whose career included 409 victories, the most in college football history. But it ended with a phone call from the board of trustees who fired him amid the Sandusky scandal.Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Franco Harris said Friday that Penn States acknowledgment of Paternos achievements was a good first step but said hed like to see a formal apology to the Paterno family from the board of trustees.I dont tie the two together, Harris said Friday. Theres the board of trustees and theres Penn State. There should be an apology for the way they handled it. I think they handled it wrong and I think they got bad advice from the lawyers and the lawyers got it wrong and they handled it wrong.He and fellow Penn State star Lydell Mitchell stood at the site where a statue of Paterno was removed by the university shortly after the scandal broke and talked with fans before Saturdays game.Fans left bricks, homemade signs and took pictures. One woman wiped a tear from her eye as she placed a brick at the site about two hours before kickoff.

Everybody has a quarterback, but not everybody really, truly loves their quarterback. Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey . There are 32 NFL teams, but there arent 32 men walking the earth who can play this position and inspire total confidence in their coaches, their teammates and their fans.With that in mind, we take a quarter-mark look at our QB Confidence Index -- ranking the NFLs teams according to how much confidence each has in its overall quarterback situation. That includes the starter and the backup plan, so please remember that before sending your angry tweets.Here is how the QB Confidence Index looks through Week 4 of the 2016 season. Ive also included each teams preseason rating so you can see how things have changed.1. New England PatriotsQB Confidence Index: 9.9 | Previous rating: 9.6The preseason rating accounted for Tom Bradys absence, which is a thing of the past. In the meantime, they found out Jimmy Garoppolo can keep things humming if something happens to Brady. The Patriots are my clear No. 1 with Brady back from suspension and Garoppolo on the mend.2. Seattle SeahawksQB Confidence Index: 9.6 | Previous rating: 9.1Questions about Trevone Boykin as a backup have faded in importance as starter Russell Wilson has made it clear he cannot be defeated with conventional weapons. Wilson has played through ankle and knee sprains and should only get better as he heals.3. Green Bay PackersQB Confidence Index: 9.3 | Previous rating: 9.8The teensiest little wobble here, as Aaron Rodgers has played only three games but ranks a puzzling 25th in the league in yards per pass attempt. Hes still reliable -- seven touchdowns and only one interception -- but the vertical game is an issue for some reason, and thats cause for a dip.4. Pittsburgh SteelersQB Confidence Index: 9.1 | Previous rating: 9.1Nothing has changed here since the preseason. Ben Roethlisberger?is currently?tied for the league lead with 11 touchdown passes even though he had one game in which he didnt throw any. Hes exactly what the Steelers thought he was, though hes still (as always) a bit of a health risk.5. New Orleans SaintsQB Confidence Index: 9.1 | Previous rating: 8.5Im still worried about the backup situation if something happens to Drew Brees. But as with Wilson, theres no reason to think anything ever will. Brees has missed just three starts due to injury since 2004. No quarterback has to do more week-to-week to overcome a soul-crushing defense. He deserves a little boost after his first win.6. Atlanta FalconsQB Confidence Index: 8.9 | Previous rating: 8.1Matt Ryan is out of his mind right now, tied with Big Ben for that league-leading 11 touchdowns and more than 200 yards ahead of Brees for the top yardage mark. Ryans issue last year was red zone interceptions, and those are under control so far as he has the Falcons off to yet another hot start.7. Cincinnati BengalsQB Confidence Index: 8.4 | Previous rating: 8.3What? Confidence? In Andy Dalton? You betcha. Yes, I know he has only three touchdown passes so far, but this is an eye-test deal. Dalton looks just like he did last year minus red-zone buddy Tyler Eifert, wholl be back soon.8. San Diego ChargersQB Confidence Index: 8.2 | Previous rating: 8.2Philip Rivers has lost Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead since the season began. Hes fifth in passer rating and seventh in QBR. He and Brees must call each other all the time to talk about the latest way their defense let a game get away.9. New York GiantsQB Confidence Index: 7.9 | Previous rating: 8.2The Giants have total confidence in Eli Mannings ability to answer the bell every week, just as the Chargers do with Rivers, the Falcons with Ryan, the Seahawks with Wilson, etc. But that late interception against Washington was an ugly reminder of what keeps Mannings confidence rating from jetting up into that top tier.10. Carolina PanthersQB Confidence Index: 7.8 | Previous rating: 9.3Cam Newton is the reigning MVP and would be a fine bet to rebound from a rough start ... if he wasnt also the official pi?ata of the National Football League. The Panthers faith in Newtons ability to last the season has to have waned over the past month. Hes now in concussion protocol, and Derek Anderson?showed why hes a backup with two late-game interceptions Sunday.11. Indianapolis ColtsQB Confidence Index: 7.8 | Previous rating: 7.8Literally nothing about the season Andrew Luck and the Colts are having is a surprise. His completion percentage is actually better than ever, even though he somehow has been sacked 15 times. If they could protect him, Luck would be an MVP candidate. But they cant, so here they sit.12. Oakland RaidersQB Confidence Index: 7.8 | Previous rating: 6.3Now, Derek Carr?... Heres a young man who has given his team reason for improved confidence. Fourth in passer rating, sixth in QBR, 68.0 completion rate with nine touchdowns and one interception: brilliant stuff, worthy of his teams confidence. And theyre returning the favor, as the Raiders monster offensive line has allowed only two sacks so far. Carr is set up to succeed.13. Arizona CardinalsQB Confidence Index: 7.6 | Previous rating: 8.6You cant lay all of Arizonas offensive struggles at the feet of Carson Palmer, but he didnt look like himself out there even before Sundays concussion. Drew Stanton could get a nice chance Thursday against the pillowy 49ers to show why the Cardinals should be confident in their backup.14. Baltimore RavensQB Confidence Index: 7.3 | Previous rating: 6.9Yeah, old Joe Flacco just keeps Flaccoing along, chucking it like crazy to a cast-off group of wide receivers. Mike Wallace one week, Steve Smith the next. Only Brees and Jameis Winston have put more balls in the air this year, but each has thrown more than twice as many touchdowns as Flacco. Whether Flaccos career ends next month or 10 years from now, everybody is going to say, Oh yeah. That guy.15. Detroit LionsQB Confidence Index: 6.4 | Previous rating: 6.4Were getting exactly what we expected out of Matthew Stafford, too. Some of these dudes just are who they are. Stafford is humming along at 300 yards a game, throwing it to Marvin Jones and Theo Riddick and not winning games. Hes squarely in the Least of Their Problems QB basket.16. Minnesota VikingsQB Confidence Index: 6.3 | Previous rating: 4.5Volatility has been the name of the Vikings QB game, with Teddy Bridgewater blowing out his knee right before the season, Sam Bradford coming over from Philly and Shaun Hill starting Week 1 because Bradford had just gotten there. But not only is Bradford delivering the way theyd hoped, they won the season opener with Hill. The Vikings have confidence it will be OK once everything settles down.17. Philadelphia EaglesQB Confidence Index: 6.3 | Previous rating: 3.8On the preseason QB Confidence Index, some clown wrote, Carson Wentz almost certainly isnt ready for this, and the Eagles are clearly in rebuild, and theyd better be confident they wont wreck Wentz by playing him before hes ready. Who was that guy? Moron. Good thing hes not writing this column anymore. You guys are lucky I came along to clean things up. Wentzs three-game sample size is all kinds of promising, and Chase Daniel is still as good a backup as any in the league.18. Dallas CowboysQB Confidence Index: 6.3 | Previous rating: 2.7Dak Prescott was the 135th pick in this years draft, and in no universe did the Cowboys expect him to be ready to win three NFL games this season. But he has. And while the Tony-Romo-as-Wally-Pipp talk is exclusively external and has no support within the Cowboys building, Dallas is plum excited to have finally have a guy who can win games for them when Tony is hurt. Big confidence jump here.19. Chicago BearsQB Confidence Index: 6.1 | Previous rating: 7.8The preseason rating was too high; sorry about that. But it was based on the idea of Brian Hoyer as the leagues top backup, and Sundays win with Hoyer at the helm seemed to bear that out somewhat. Ill buy the idea of Hoyer keeping the job once Jay Cutler is healthy before Ill buy Prescott keeping his once Romo is back.20. Denver BroncosQB Confidence Index: 6.0 | Previous rating: 3.3Got to hand it to young Trevor Siemian. I thought he was a caretaker, placeholder, whatever, until he aired out the Bengals in Week 3 and showed why Denver had so much preseason confidence in him. Hes hurt now, but the 4-0 defending champs dont seem to care much whos taking the snaps, do they?21. Jacksonville JaguarsQB Confidence Index: 5.3 | Previous rating: 6.1The alarm bells arent sounding for Blake Bortles yet, but the plastic cover is open and the Jaguars thumb is hovering over the button. With six interceptions to go with seven touchdowns and a 1-3 record, Bortles doesnt seem to be taking the jump many expected of him in 2016, which could spell trouble for his coaches.22. Tampa Bay BuccaneersQB Confidence Index: 5.3 | Previous rating: 5.3Confident enough to allow Jameis Winston to throw a league-leading 177 passes so far, the Bucs cant draw much confidence from the fact that he completed only 103 of them, or that eight have been caught by opponents. Long term, the Bucs have confidence in Winston as their franchise quarterback. But hes young and he looks it.23. WashingtonQB Confidence Index: 5.1 | Previous rating: 5.1Had we done this update after two weeks, Kirk Cousins performance would have sunk his rating toward the bottom. But he has rebounded, which means his evaluation hasnt changed since the preseason: He does enough to give Washington hope, but not yet enough to give it confidence.24. Kansas City ChiefsQB Confidence Index: 5.1 | Previous rating: 5.1Alex Smith is actually playing about as well as can be expected. Which puts him right around this spot. Hes fourth in the league in pass attempts, has completed 64.9 percent of them and, like a few others on this list, isnt among his teams biggest problems. Hes just not going to elevate them very high.25. Buffalo BillsQB Confidence Index: 4.5 | Previous rating: 4.5We didnt think the Bills would ask Tyrod Taylor to do much, and they havent. Hes 24th in pass attempts, 25th in yards and tied for 20th in touchdown passes. If they really had confidence in him, hed throw more.26. Tennessee TitansQB Confidence Index: 4.4 | Previous rating: 4.4Growing-pains year so far for young Marcus Mariota, whos tied for 25th in completion percentage and dead last in Total QBR. He carries his teams long-term confidence but hasnt done much to make the Titans think he can win them games in the short term.27. Miami DolphinsQB Confidence Index: 4.2 | Previous rating: 5.1There are all kinds of excuses for Ryan Tannehill. His offensive line is a mess. His coach keeps benching all the running backs. Its like his 19th different offensive system in five years. At some point, though, this guy has to look like hes getting better. He doesnt.28. Houston TexansQB Confidence Index: 3.9 | Previous rating: 4.1Its possible the Texans will never be more confident in Brock Osweiler than they were the day they signed him to a four-year, $72 million contract. Most of us would be pleased to receive that level of confidence at some point in our lives, and Houstons 3-1 start buys Osweiler time to show them he deserved it.29. New York JetsQB Confidence Index: 3.1 | Previous rating: 3.9See??? the Jets front office is probably saying, to someone, even in their imagination. We TOLD you we would have been better off just direct-snapping it to Matt Forte and Bilal Powell and spending that money on new cars for every employee. At least then we dont have six-interception games. Ryan Fitzpatrick is, now and forever, Ryan Fitzpatrick.30. San Francisco 49ersQB Confidence Index: 2.8 | Previous rating: 3.6Its still Blaine Gabberts job, mainly because Colin Kaepernick?hasnt physically recovered enough from offseason surgeries to make the coaches believe he can play a whole game. In related news, Kaepernick isnt exactly Roger Staubach. Long year by the Bay.31. Los Angeles RamsQB Confidence Index: 2.5 | Previous rating: 1.9Yeah, well bump them up a little bit for going 3-1 with Case Keenum while the No. 1 overall pick sits on the bench. But this isnt a results ranking; its a confidence ranking. And the Rams lack of confidence in their quarterback situation is palpable during every tense Jeff Fisher news conference.32. Cleveland BrownsQB Confidence Index: 0.4 | Previous rating: 0.8Hue Jackson was confident he could make something of Robert Griffin III. Griffin didnt last one game. The only good news here is that each week brings the Browns closer to picking any quarterback they want in the 2017 draft class. Discount Green Bay Packers Jerseys .

Western Sydney midfielder Mitch Nichols concedes the clubs fans are owed an A-League win, and hes out to give it to them against Melbourne City on Friday night. Custom Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys .Its been a month since the Wanderers recorded their sole win of the A-League season, away to Adelaide, and Tony Popovics side are yet to celebrate three points with their home fans.But theres no alarm at Western Sydney, where coach Popovic shares the near-universal view among the football community that strong performances will soon bring points to Wanderland.Our football is getting better each game. We need to marry the two now, the performance and the result, Popovic said on Thursday.We feel like were playing well enough to get results, to get wins. Now its about finishing the job off.The Wanderers sit seventh after six rounds, and with the worst goal difference and most goals conceded in the league.Defensive calamities have plagued the club over the last month, with Borda joining clumsy goalkeeper Andrew Redmayne in the bad books after a howler in their last-out 3-0 loss to Melbourne Victory.At the other end of the pitch, Nichols says theres more that the forwards can do that would help out their defenders.If we put those chances away we take the pressure off the defence, he said.The story of our season so far; weve thrown away two victories. Well put 60 good minutes together and back off for 30.We do owe our fans ... (but) were not far off.Were not getting outplayed. Were in the contest. Weve been turning up.Were just really getting punished and doing schoolboy errors.The Wanderers will be without striker Brendon Santalab, with the Spotless Stadium match arriving a week too early after a calf issue suffered against Victory.Popovic said he hoped that his side could be the aggressors at their home deck, even against red-hot forward Bruno Fornaroli and on Tim Cahills first homecoming game with City in Sydney.We have a game plan we believe can cause them problems. Theyll certainly have to worry about us, he said.STATS THAT MATTER* City v Wanderers is usually a high-scoring affair; the fixture averages 3.5 goals and the last two have finished 4-3 and 3-2* Two more goals will surge Bruno Fornaroli into the top 20 all-time A-League scorers* Wanderers gloveman Andrew Redmayne might have conceded the most goals of the season (13) but hes also made 17 saves this campaign, just two behind saves leader Jack Duncan of Newcastle Willie Stargell Jersey . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman.

CHICAGO -- Nothing ever rattles Corey Kluber. Jeremy Toljan Jersey . He is machine-like, unflappable and perhaps the ideal pitcher to be asked to work on short rest in the World Series.Plug him in and he goes, and he is ready to go a bit earlier than usual. The pitcher nicknamed Klubot a few years ago by his teammates will start Game 4 on three days rest Saturday night with the Indians two wins from their first Series title since 1948.Manager Terry Francona is bringing Kluber back quickly, and thats not great news for the Cubs or their fans. Hes been Clevelands October ace in his first postseason, going 3-1 with a 0.74 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings. He confounded Chicagos hitters in Game 1 with six superb, scoreless innings.The right-hander was brilliant in his first Series appearance, an 88-pitch clinic in which he either blew fastballs past the Cubs or locked them up by brush stroking the plates corners on both sides. Kluber was masterful, striking out eight of the first nine batters he faced to set a Series record as a national TV audience finally got to see a star who has not gotten much attention.Kluber has been mostly overlooked in small-market Cleveland, where he has anchored the Indians staff for several years. If the 30-year-old pitched in New York or Boston or Chicago or Los Angeles, there might have been a statue erected of him by now.Not that the 2014 Cy Young winner would pose for one.Kluber simply enjoys doing his job, and few do it any better.Kluber has made himself, through hard work, one of the elite pitchers in the game, Francona said. Once he got here he didnt take the foot off the gas. I mean, this kids routines are impeccable. He works hard. Every time he picks up a ball, there is intent. Theres a reason that its October 28th and his gas tank, the needles on full. Thats a pretty big compliment to his work ethic.Getting Kluber to smile, never mind say something complimentary about himself, is impossible. Hell let others talk about him. All Kluber wants to do is help his team, and if that means he has to pitch sooner than he planned, well, thats cool.Yes, hes a creature of habit, but even Kluber can handle a change-up and pitch earlier than usual. His preparation wont change.Its just basically doing the same stuff in one less day, he said Friday before Game 3. The (bullpen) sides are a little shorter and things like that, but Im still able to get in the things I need to get in in between. I dont really feel like the last time I did it made a big difference in the way I felt the day I pitched.Kluber, who went 18-9 during the regular season, pitched on short rest in the AL Championship Series against Toronto and sustained his only loss of the postseason, when he allowed two runs and four hits with seven strikeouts in five innings as Francona went to his bullpen a little early so as not to overextend him.Franconas going to ride Kluber now, and if hes as good as he was in Game 1, the Indians will be a win closer to ending their 68-year drought.Kluber had never gone on short rest before and found he was overthrowing early on against the Blue Jays before he relaxing and trusting his pitches.Last time was my first time doing it, so I didnt know what to expect how I was going to feel, he said. Now that I do know that I felt fine, its just a matter of using those three days to recover. Ill be fine tomorrow and then just go out there and pitch.Cubs manager Joe Maddon sounded a similar tone for his players as they prepare to face Kluber again.The guys got to see him, so there wont be as much of a surprise the next time he pitches, Maddon said after Friday nights 1-0 loss. Its difficult for pitchers to replicate time after time, especially against the same team, especially with shorter rest, to be as sharp. But he may be. Not that its an advantage, only in the sense that we have seen him relatively just a couple days ago.So hopefully that works to our advantage. But youve got to wait until the games actually played to find out how sharp he is. Lukasz Piszczek Jersey .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. Maximilian Philipp Jersey .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. http://www.footballdortmundpro.com/Kids-Nuri-Sahin-Jersey/ . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. CINCINNATI -- Last season, the Xavier Musketeers were a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and had some pundits listing them among the Final Four favorites.That was March. National recognition in November is something new on Victory Parkway.Xavier, which opens the regular season against Lehigh on Friday (7 p.m.) at Cintas Center, is ranked No. 7 in the preseason Associated Press poll, the highest preseason rating in school history.The Musketeers highest previous ranking in the preseason was 10th in 1997-98 and 2002-03. However, coach Chris Mack said he is not concerned about his players absorbing that praise.I dont worry about the attention, Mack said. It helps that people talk about you. It helps in recruiting. I know fans get excited. But, its really about what we do between the lines. I do think we have some older players that are used to having a businesslike attitude.It helps to have the top two scorers returning, junior guard Trevon Bluiett (15.1 points per game) and sophomore guard Edmond Sumner (11.0 ppg).Bluiett lost around 20 pounds during the summer to become quicker and more athletic to the rim.Sumner missed three games last season with a head injury but still compiled 112 assists. He is poised for a huge year, one that could propel him up the NBA Draft ladder.Both Bluiett and Sumner were named preseason first-team All-Big East Conference. Junior guard J.P. Macura, the Big Easts sixth man of the year last season, also returns.The Musketeers will be without a couple of key contributors on Friday. Sophomore forward Kaiser Gates is out with a knee injury, and senior guard Myles Davis is suspended due to allegations in an ongoing domestic-violence case.Xavier, which was ranked ninth in the final AP poll last year, is picked to finish second in the Big East behind defending national champion Villanova. Marcel Schmelzer Jersey. Still, the Musketeers arent thinking too highly of themselves.We dont really focus too much on preseason rankings, Macura said. Last year we werent ranked (in the preseason) and we had a great season. We just have to take every day, practice with energy, and everything else will take care of itself.The Friday game is Xaviers first since losing to Wisconsin on a buzzer-beater in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, a defeat that took months for the Musketeers to move past.Xavier wont look past Lehigh on Friday, though. As Sumner said earlier this week, the Mountain Hawks are not a slouch.Xavier is 2-0 all-time against Lehigh, including a narrow 69-63 win in 2004. This season, the Hawks are a near-unanimous favorite to win the Patriot League title, receiving all but three first-place votes. Senior forward Tim Kempton, a two-time Patriot League player of the year, is picked to win it for a third time. Junior guard Kahron Ross is a first-team all-league selection.Lehigh returns its top four scorers from last years squad that won 11 consecutive games before losing a heartbreaker in the Patriot League championship game.I think this team learned a lot from going through the journey last season, said coach Brett Reed, who is in his 10th season as Lehighs head coach. They are hungry for a new opportunity. However, they will need to take the lessons learned and apply them this upcoming year if were going to be even stronger, which will be needed to win a championship.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Rafaela Silva hoped to get an Olympic gold medal four years ago in London. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Ryan-Switzer-Jersey/ . Instead she got racial abuse.Disqualified in her Olympic judo match and eliminated from the chance of winning a medal, Brazils Silva thought shed find refuge in sympathetic text messages from fans in her country.Instead, heres what she found: The place for a monkey is in a cage. You are not an Olympian.The messages said I was an embarrassment to my family, so they really hurt, said Silva, who won gold in the world championships a year after London, and is among the favorites for gold when the Rio de Janeiro Olympics open in just over a week.Silva is one of many athletes familiar with the sting of racism in a country where most of the poor are brown and black. Though a nation of rich diversity -- 51 percent identify as non-white, brown, black or mixed race -- racism still runs deep.On the one hand, Brazil is thoroughly mixed. On the other, there is searing racial inequality in a place often portrayed as a racial democracy, or race-blind. The myth of a race-blind country has been losing force, but theres still a yawning gap between black and white.Behind the apparent peaceful melting pot theres a lot of tension and not much open talk about race, Marta Arretche, a political scientist who studies inequality at the University of Sao Paulo, told The Associated Press.Diversity and inequality will line up side-by-side at the Olympics, just as they did at Brazils World Cup two years ago. Visitors will see the countrys racial politics play out in ways that are subtle, yet clear.Magazine covers seldom feature a black face. The very popular soap operas feature mostly white actors, although black actors are now getting roles other than drivers, cooks or doormen. Upscale restaurants and suburban shopping malls are almost all white. Waiters in top restaurants are seldom black. And the only black faces at the airport are the hired help, or black women caring for white children in the airline lounges.All shades sunbathe on most Rios beaches, though Ipanema and Leblon tend to be more white. Vendors selling trinkets and drinks on all beaches are usually black.It will also be apparent in the crowds at venues, an issue that began with the World Cup two years ago. White fans bought the pricey tickets, and the black and brown were priced out.Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes promised during the World Cup that the Olympics would be different, pledging to supply 1.2 million free tickets to schools and the poor. In the end, he came up with 47,000 Olympics tickets -- 4 percent of his promise.The cheapest Olympic tickets cost 40 Brazilian reals ($12), though the average price is 100-200 ($30-$60). The top ticket for the opening ceremony is listed on the official website at 4,600 ($1,400). By comparison, the government-mandated monthly minimum wage is 880 reals (about $270).Blacks earn about half of what whites do, and among the wealthier the gap jumps to 2.5 times less.The root of the problem starts with slavery.Brazil imported about 5 million African slaves -- about 10 times more than the United States. Slavery ended in 1888, which was 25 years after the United States. Brazil was overwhelmingly black at the time, which triggered a government policy to whiten the country with poor European immigrants, Japanese and others to replace slave labor.Its difficult to define whos black. Most Brazilians self-identify, which means that two people of similar skin colors may identify differently -- one as white and one as black.In a case at the University of Brasilia, identical twins applied for admission under an affirmative-action program. Only one was judged to be black.The Brazilian government in a household survey in 1976 asked people to describe their color. It came up with 136 descriptions from morena (brown), to canela (cinnamon), to trigo (wheat) and 133 other shades, an exhaustive list explained by Brazilian anthropologist Lilia Moritz Schwarcz .Barcelona soccer star Neymar has been the subject of many reports about his skin color. A mix-raced Brazilian, photos show his skin tone has lightened since hes become world-famous and a marketing success. He frequently appears in TV ads for dandruff shampoo, foot cream and electronic products.The bias against being black shows up almost everywhere, Arretche said.Brazils 400 Olympic athletes represent all colors and shades, easy to see in photos on the website of the Brazilian Olympic Committee . The same website carries a group photo of the BOCs administration standing in front of the headquarters: the members are almost all white headed by IOC member Carlos Nuzman.The same is true for the local Olympic organizing committee, which Nuzman also leads -- virtually all white from CEO Sidney Levy on down.Michel Temer, the acting president of Brazil, has only white men in his cabinet -- no women and no blacks. Temer has the honor of declaring the Olympics open at the opening ceremony on Aug. 5.There was a strong silence in Brazil about race, a taboo, said Marcia Lima, who studies the subject at the University of Sao Paulo. That was the most powerful way for the white elite to control black people; that nobody talked about race. We dont have a race problem here would be the response, so we didnt need to talk about it.Mortiz Schwarcz cites a Brazilian study in which 97 percent said they were not prejudiced, but 98 percent said they knew people who were.Its not so open, not institutional as it was in the south in the United States, Arretche said. The racism is much more disguised.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP .His work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/stephen-wade http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Travis-Frederick-Jersey/ . -- 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. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Damontre-Moore-Jersey/ . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Damien-Wilson-Jersey/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. NEW YORK -- Former two-division titleholder Mikey Garcia returned from a two-and-a-half-year layoff looking sharp.Garcia scored four knockdowns en route to a punishing, fifth-round knockout of former featherweight titleholder Elio Rojas, who was coming off a 23-month layoff, in a junior welterweight fight on Saturday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.The fight, which was the co-feature of featherweight titlist Leo Santa Cruzs defense against Carl Frampton, was Garcias first since he outpointed Juan Carlos Burgos in defense of a junior lightweight world title on Jan. 25, 2014.I think it was a very good performance, Garcia said. Even though Ive been out for two-and-a-half years, people havent forgotten about me. I did miss [boxing], but the time off helped me regain that fire.Garcia, a former featherweight titlist, wound up in the long layoff because of a protracted legal battle over his contract with former promoter Top Rank, with whom he was unhappy despite being on the verge of his first seven-figure purse and a strong push from the company. The case was settled a few months ago, and Garcia became a free agent, which enabled him to return to face Rojas on a one-fight deal with promoter Lou DiBella and Showtime.Considering the layoff, Garcia looked dialed in from the outset in an explosive performance. Referee Eddie Claudio appeared to miss a knockdown in the first round, when Garcia landed a right hand to the body and Rojas went down to the mat. Claudio, however, ruled it a slip.In the third round, Garcia scored two big knockdowns that were unmistakable. He drilled Rojas with a chopping right hand that sent him to the canvas midway through the round and landed another right hand on the button moments later. That dropped Rojas again.Garcia (35-0, 29 KOs), 28, of Riverside, California, continued to paste Rojas (24-3, 14 KOs), 33, of the Dominican Republic, with shots in the fourth round, eliciting chats from the crowd of Mikey! Mikey!In the fifth round, Garcia planted Rojas face-first with a left hand, then dropped him with a right uppercut-left hook combination. Rojas, fighting for only the second time in four years, beat the count, but Claudio waved it off at 2 minutes, 2 seconds.One of the reasons Garcia, who might go down to lightweight to pursue a title shot, looked as sharp as he did was probably that he stayed in his brother and trainer Robert Garcias gym throughout the layoff, sparring with many of the talented fighters who work there.I think its too soon to make an assessment [on where Im at], but I do feel just as good [as before the layoff], Garcia said.Harrison KOs Rabchenko in eliminatorDetroit junior middleweight Tony Harrison moved a step closer to a world title shot with a ninth-round knockout of plodding Sergey Rabchenko, who beforehand called the fight the most important of his career but did not fight that way.Harrison (24-1, 20 KOs) dominated the lackluster fight until landing a massive right hand in the ninth round, which sent Rabchenko (27-2, 20 KOs) backward and to a knee. He beat the count, and referee Arthur Mercante gave him a long look but elected to stop the fight at 1 minute, 18 seconds.This is definitely my biggest win ever. Im thankful to my team for getting me ready, Harrison said. I was luring him to sleep. I kept jabbing and ended up in the corner. My trainer told me that I would have the right hand behind the jab, and thats what happened.Im a finisher. I had him hurt, and I said to the ref, You better not let him go. I knew I had him beat.With the win -- in a fight the crowd booed because of the lack of action -- Harrison earned the No. 2 position in a sanctioning bodys rankings to put him in position for an eventual shot against world titleholder Jermall Charlo, whose immediate mandatory fight against Julian J Rock Williams is slated to take place this fall.A focused Tony Harrison can beat anybody at 154 pounds, Harrison said. Now its on to [the winner of] Jermall Charlo and Julian Williams. Im in the catbird seat.Harrison, 25, was sharp with his jab, which he kept in the slower Rabchenkos face as he piled up points throughout the fight. Former two-division titleholder Ricky Hatton, the British star, trains Rabchenko, 30, a former European champion from Belarus, and was animated in his corner. Even so, nothing worked, as Rabchenko generally threw one punch at a time and rarely connected with authority.I didnt throw enough punches, Rabchenko said. I kept relying on my defense and didnt attack enough. I was looking for one shot, and it was difficult to do it against Tony Harrison with one punch. The ref did a great job with the stoppage. My health is first and foremost. The health of any fighter is the most important thing. I knew I couldnt continue.Harrison won his third fight in a row since an upset, ninth-round, knockout loss to Willie Nelson last July. http://www.cowboysrookieproshop.com/Cowboys-Jourdan-Lewis-Jersey/. elterweight Paulie Malignaggi (36-7, 7 KOs) outpointed longtime neighborhood pal Gabriel Tito Bracero (24-3, 5 KOs) in a fight for the symbolic Brooklyn title belt.It was a fight years in the making, and the Brooklyn crowd cheered both in the fight between two 35-year-olds near the end of their careers. The fighters kissed each other on the cheek after the final bell in a show of respect.Malignaggi, a former welterweight and junior welterweight world titleholder, used his superior jab to control the fight. He won 98-92, 98-92 and 96-94. ESPN.com had Malignaggi winning 97-93.I knew Bracero was a counter-puncher like myself?.? I was just trying to be the sharper counter-puncher, Malignaggi said. We both try to set traps, and I just wanted to make him earn any points? that? he got. At the same time, I felt like I had to earn my points. I dictated the fight with pot shots and stepping over.I didnt want to get desperate. I wanted to force him to get desperate from being behind on the scorecards. I think I did a good job of that.Malignaggi won his third fight in a row since a ninth-round, knockout loss to Danny Garcia in August at Barclays Center.After the fight, Malignaggi took his place ringside to call the Showtime-televised bouts in his role as analyst.Im excited to call the fights tonight, he said. Im a fan before Im a fighter. Im excited to go to work right now. Im going to head to Italy on Tuesday, take a vacation and then think about my future.Philadelphia lightweight Tevin Farmer (22-4-1, 5 KOs) put on a clinic against Ivan Redkach (19-2-1, 15 KOs) in a unanimous decision win that extended his win streak to 15.

He was quicker and more accurate with his punches, and he fought well on the inside and outside against Redkach, a former amateur standout from Ukraine now based in Los Angeles.The judges scored the fight 99-89, 98-90 and 98-90. ESPN.com also had Farmer winning 97-93.Im proud of my performance tonight. I worked hard in camp, and my team did a great job getting me ready, Farmer said. I was very confident that I would be victorious as long as I executed the game plan, and thats what I did.I want a world title. Im going to go back to 130 pounds, and I feel like Im ready for a title shot. If I have to fight an eliminator I will. I wont back down from any challenge.Farmer was sharp with his right hands to the head and left uppercuts. But he landed a bad low blow that sent Redkach, 30, to the mat in the ninth round and was warned for the infraction. In the ninth round, however, it was Redkach, 1-2-1 in his last four bouts, who lost a point when referee Arthur Mercante docked him for head-butting the 25-year-old Farmer, who has not lost since an eighth-round knockout in 2012 to Jose Pedraza, who went on to win a junior lightweight world title.I beat him down, Farmer said. I was the more experienced fighter, and I came in with more rounds and with better opponents on my resume.Brooklyn featherweight Amanda Serrano (29-1-1, 22 KOs) knocked out Calixta Silgado (14-7-3, 9 KOs), of Colombia, in the first round to retain her womens world title for the first time.

Realism is a small, lonely island in the roiling sea of 2016 sports discourse. Cody Bellinger Jersey . Yeah, but isnt what anyone wants to hear. Especially where the still-embryonic career of Dak Prescott is concerned.The Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback has so far been poised and smart and nimble of both mind and body. Hes third in the league in Total QBR, fifth in yards per pass attempt. The Cowboys are 6-1 with him starting in place of an injured Tony Romo. They were 1-11 without Romo last year.But Prescott played a bad game Sunday. He just did. He looked like a rookie, ruffled by the Philadelphia Eagles attacking defensive front, making questionable decisions and poor throws when things started breaking down. He delivered a victory in overtime in spite of his 19-for-39 fire drill, and that says a lot about a young player. But he is, very obviously, a young player with work to do if hes to spin his hot start into sustained success.The quirky note that Prescott was the first rookie to lead a fourth-quarter comeback from a double-digit deficit since Nick Foles in 2012 is packed with warning. Eagles fans once saw Foles as the answer to their prayers. Hes now Alex Smiths backup in Kansas City. Not that theres anything wrong with that, but its not the fate Eagles fans imagined for him in 2012-13. And its surely not the fate Cowboys fans currently imagine for Prescott.This column is called What we learned and didnt learn, and I dont think we learned much about Prescott on Sunday night. On some level, everyone must have already known that (A) he has what it takes to win his team a close game and (B) hes a rookie who was not going to paint 16 flawless masterpieces. Even the most entrenched Team Dak loyalist must acknowledge that theres at least a chance itll make sense to give the job back to Romo at some point.But while none of that necessarily falls under the heading of What we learned, its nice sometimes to be reminded of how much we still have to learn. Here are some other Week 8 lessons:Cam Newton has a pointNo one weeps for (or with) Goliath, so when a player of Newtons physical stature talks about not feeling safe on the field, there is surely plenty of eye-rolling around the NFL and its fan base. But this isnt Newton pouting after a loss. (They won.) This is a real concern, articulated previously by teammates, coaches and relatives and now by the league MVP himself.Newton has been hit 212 times since the start of the 2015 season -- 27 more than any other quarterback. The Panthers are one of only two teams in that time whose opponents have not been penalized for roughing the passer. Thats an embarrassing statistical anomaly that can only be explained by a double standard. He runs more than other quarterbacks, sure. But hes not the only one running.Its indisputable that defensive players are targeting Newton. Its indisputable that theyre getting away with it. We learned Sunday that hed like both of those things to stop. But the first one wont until the second does.The Raiders season is Mario KartSeriously, Oakland is standing on the gas and doesnt care what it runs into on the way to the finish line. The Raiders committed 23 accepted penalties Sunday and still beat the Bucs because Derek Carr threw for three-tenths of a mile on 59 attempts, not one of which was intercepted. The defense had 12 men on the field twice on Tampa Bays game-tying drive in the fourth quarter, then just nine for the two-point conversion. Think about that. The Raiders literally dont care how many players they use on defense, so bent are they on getting back to watching Carrs weekly first-person shooter game.The Raiders are 5-0 on the road, 1-2 at home. Their six wins have come by a combined total of 25 points, only one by more than seven. They have outscored their opponents by 12 points for the season and, if the season ended right now, they would somehow be the No. 2 seed in the AFC. The Raiders make as much sense as David S. Pumpkins. You have no idea whats going on or whether its actually any good, but you cant stop watching.The divisions arent what we thought they wereBefore the season started, the NFC West and the AFC North looked like monsters. Seattle and Arizona were co-favorites in the NFC. Pittsburgh and Cincinnati expected a Baltimore resurgence. These were power divisions, on paper.But the games arent played on paper. Theyre played on iPad screens. And on Twitter, on Thursday nights. No team?in the NFC West has won since Oct. 17, and only the Seahawks in that division are over .500. The Steelers are a so-so 4-3 and are dealing with a banged-up?Ben Roethlisberger. The Bengals streak of five straight playoff appearances looks to be in jeopardy, and the Ravens have faded after a 3-0 start. Meanwhile, the entire NFC East is over .500 and the AFC West could put three teams in the playoffs. Long way to go, but the chances of Seattle, Arizona, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh all living up to their lofty preseason expectations are fading by the week.The Jaguars found a scapegoatLets see ... Your franchise quarterback has regressed to the point that he cant even give his receivers a chance to catch the ball, and your defense gave up 27 points in the first half to the Titans. Fire the offensive coordinator and replace him with the quarterbacks coach? Not feeling this one, Jags. Hey, it worked for Buffalo! someone may or may not have said in Jacksonville after Gus Bradley threw Greg Olson overboard Saturday. And sure enough, the Bills did win four straight after firing their offensive coordinator earlier this year. But even that has faded, and odds seem good that Olson wont be the last one out the door in Duval.Relax -- there is nothing wrong with a tieI can understand why coaches and players would be unsatisfied with a tie. And I get why, as a fan, youd be upset that your team failed to win. But what I dont get is this idea that a tie is some sort of abomination that should be stamped out with yet another unnecessary change to the NFLs overtime rules. Washington and Cincinnati tied. So what? It was an excellent game between two teams that have a lot of really good players and were operating out of at least some sense of desperation. We complain about blowouts, but a tie is literally the closest possible game, and yet something is wrong with this as an outcome? Are we that obsessed with winning and losing?In spite of the fact that one has happened each of the past two weeks, ties are rare enough in the NFL that we can view them as a cute aberration rather than a flaw in the system. They add a different flavor come playoff-scenario time. And given what we know about the toll the game takes on players bodies, 15 extra minutes is surely more than enough time to ask these guys to play. Let there be ties. No harm done here.Short passes are the new blackFour receivers had at least 10 catches in Week 8. Three of them -- Green Bays Davante Adams, Philadelphias Jordan Matthews and Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald?-- failed to reach 75 receiving yards. Yes, those three dudes averaged a combined 6.45 yards per pass. Pretty electrifying, right? Its the second week in a row the league has seen three players with 10 catches and fewer than 75 yards.?Don Coryell is rolling over in his grave, but in a league with only about four good offensive lines, its tough to run the ball and its tough to get enough time to throw downfield. Short passing games arent going away anytime soon. Yasiel Puig Jersey . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. Rich Hill Jersey . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. http://www.dodgersteamproshop.com/Dodgers-Sandy-Koufax-Kids-Jersey/ . And follow TSN.ca right through Deadline Day for all the updates. From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie. NEW YORK -- First baseman Anthony Rizzo and right fielder Jason Heyward from the World Series champion Chicago Cubs have won Gold Glove Awards.The honors for fielding excellence were announced Tuesday by Rawlings and broadcast on ESPN.?According to Elias Sports Bureau, Heyward is the first position player in Major League Baseball history to win three straight Gold Glove Awards with three different teams (Braves, Cardinals?and Cubs).?San Francisco?star Buster Posey was picked at catcher in the National League, ending Yadier Molinas eight-year reign with St. Louis.I dont know if it makes it any more special or not that he had won it eight years in a row because I think Id be happy with it either way, Posey said. This ones up there for me. Im a firm believer you win ballgames with pitching and defense.Posey was joined by a pair of Giants teammates, the double-play combination of shortstop Brandon Crawford and second baseman Joe Panik.Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado won for the fourth consecutive year, and Arizona pitcher Zack Greinke took his third straight Gold Glove. Other winners in the NL were Atlanta center fielder Ender Inciarte and Pittsburgh left fielder Starling Marte.Young shortstop Francisco Lindor from the AL champion Cleveland Indians was a first-time winner, along with Texas first baseman Mitch Moreland, Detroit second baseman Ian Kinsler, New York Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner?and?Boston?right fielder Mookie Betts.Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez won his fourth Gold Glove in a row, Houston pitcher Dallas Keuchel took his third straight and Tampa Bay center fielder Kevin Kiermaier repeated from last year.Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre was rewarded for the fifth time overall. Jackie Robinson Jersey. Im pretty surprised an old man like me can win the Gold Glove, said the 37-year-old Beltre, who was thrilled Moreland won as well.I think Im happier for him than for me because for the last couple of years, he has played such a great defensive first base and was never recognized, Beltre said. Most of my mistakes are throwing the ball and Mitch has saved me so many errors and makes things look easier for me.The 22-year-old Lindor became the first Indians player to win a Gold Glove since outfielder Grady Sizemore in 2008, and their second shortstop after Omar Vizquel won every year from 1994 to 2001.Votes are submitted in September by managers and coaches who cannot choose their own players. Three years ago, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Gold Glove selection process as well.This is the complete list of the Gold Glove winners:?American LeagueP -- Dallas Keuchel, HoustonC -- Salvador Perez, Kansas City1B -- Mitch Moreland, Texas2B -- Ian Kinsler, Detroit3B -- Adrian Beltre, TexasSS -- Francisco Lindor, ClevelandLF -- Brett Gardner, N.Y.
