NEW YORK -- Carmelo Anthony was really sharp when he was in, and the New York Knicks were even better after he went out. Good enough to be mistaken for one of the NBAs best. "I thought we were playing against the Spurs," Denver guard Ty Lawson said. "They know they pass to one side, kick, kick, and it opens 3s. It was just a tough night for us." Anthony scored 31 points in three quarters, then watched from the bench as the Knicks ran away from his old team in the fourth for a 117-90 victory over the Nuggets on Friday night. J.R. Smith added 10 of his 13 points in the fourth. He also threw the pass of the game during the decisive spurt when he went behind the back to Jeremy Tyler, who scored while being fouled. Amare Stoudemire finished with 17 points for the Knicks, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Tyler had 12 points and 11 rebounds as the Knicks shot 56.5 per cent from the field, one of their best performances of the season. "Everybody played their part tonight," Anthony said. "It was a great team win and we want to build off that." The Knicks were 13 of 20 for 34 points in the final quarter and shot 64 per cent while scoring 67 points in the second half. It was a surprisingly easy victory during a difficult season for the Knicks, who figured they would be competing for championships by now when they paid a heavy price to acquire Anthony from the Nuggets three years ago this month. Instead, they are only 20-30, currently outside the playoff picture and giving Denver hope that the first-round pick the Knicks still owe them this summer from that Anthony deal could be in the lottery. Lawson scored 24 points for the Nuggets, who had their two-game winning streak stopped and fell back to .500 at 24-24. They committed 24 turnovers that led to 27 points. The Knicks latest slump had sparked renewed reports that coach Mike Woodsons job could be in jeopardy, and he spent most of his pregame news conference repeating his confidence in himself and his team. He still believes the Knicks can be a playoff team, a thought only imaginable because they reside in the Eastern Conference. But they showed Friday how effective they can be when they get balanced scoring beyond Anthony, which has happened infrequently this season, and by the end of the night Woodson was talking about how his Knicks would be difficult for powerful Oklahoma City to handle on Sunday. Then again, they lost to the league-worst Milwaukee Bucks this week, so nothing is certain. "You know what, you cant change the past," centre Tyson Chandler said when asked if he was frustrated that the Knicks couldnt play like this more often. "So I would say more so that it gives us the opportunity to rally, because we see what its going take for us to win. Weve just got to put more nights like this together." Leading by seven in the third quarter, New York began to open a gap when Anthony made a jumper, Chandler scored and Anthony nailed a 3-pointer to make it 62-48 with about 8 1/2 minutes remaining in the period. Tim Hardaway Jr. made a 3-pointer and Anthony converted a three-point play for a quick six points in the final minute as the lead grew to 83-66. Smith had three straight baskets in the fourth, the latter two from behind the arc, to push the lead to 102-77. The Knicks helped hand the Nuggets a 26-20 lead after one, committing eight turnovers that led to 14 points. But the much-maligned Raymond Felton scored all of his nine points in the second, and New York scored the final nine points of the period for a 50-44 halftime lead. "I think at the end of the second quarter, when it was 44-44, we got five turnovers in a row and couldnt get a shot up and that kind of pushed their lead," Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried said. "They got the lead and after that I guess it was curtains." Felton also had eight assists. NOTES: The Knicks visit to Oklahoma City for a nationally televised matchup features Kevin Durant and Anthony, the NBAs top scorers. Anthony missed the Thunders Christmas Day rout of the Knicks with a sprained ankle. ... The Knicks shot a season-high 57.1 per cent against Brooklyn on Dec. 5. Gary Roberts Jersey . Jonathan Crompton led the team to a 40-9 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Crompton threw three touchdown passes - two to Duron Carter and one to Brandon London - and Sean Whyte connected on four field goals to power the Alouettes to the win. Mark Giordano Jersey . In the other Group A game, the Czech Republic stunned Canada, 5-4 in a shootout. Dominik Simon scored the deciding goal in the tiebreaker. The United States scored its first three goals on power plays. "Overall, I love to see the power-play goals we were able to get tonight," said U. http://www.jerseyofficialhockeyflames.co...ey-jersey/.

She has risen to No. 32 in the world rankings and will likely be seeded at the first Grand Slam event of the 2014 season. Craig Conroy Jersey . Solomon Elimimian did not make the trip with the team after suffering what appeared to be a right leg injury in the teams regular season finale against the Calgary Stampeders. Johnny Gaudreau Jersey . Hes just beginning to get similar results. The right-hander struggled after winning the honour in 2008 and 2009, but a retooling of his game has begun to pay off and has the San Francisco Giants thinking about the Lincecum of old.(SportsNetwork.com) - The San Francisco Giants have apparently re-signed right-hander Jake Peavy to a two-year contract. Although the Giants have yet to confirm the deal, the pact is believed to be worth $24 million and contains a full no-trade clause. Peavy started last season with Boston, but was dealt to San Francisco in late July after going 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 outings for the Red Sox. However, he flourished with the Giants, as he was 6-4 with a 2.17 ERA in 12 starts. The 33-year-old hurler alsoo made four starts for the Giants in the postseason and was 1-2 with a 6.dddddddddddd19 ERA. He tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings in his NLDS start versus Washington, but his season ended on a sour note, as he lasted just 1 1/3 innings in a Game 6 World Series loss to the Kansas City Royals. A National League Cy Young Award winner with the San Diego Padres in 2007 and a three-time All-Star, Peavy is 139-111 with a 3.53 ERA over 13 seasons with the Padres, Chicago White Sox, Red Sox and Giants.

  allenge of another difficult SEC season, while Ohio State has been a perennial power
Posted by: ouhao122 - 29 minutes ago - Forum: Software - No Replies

BEREA, Ohio - The Browns defence has gone from struggling to staggering.Cleveland closed its week of practice for Sundays AFC North matchup against Pittsburgh with 10 defensive players on the injury list.On Friday, Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden returned to practice after missing two days with a hip injury, raising the possibility he will be available to cover top Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. But Hadens comeback was tempered by linebacker Paul Kruger missing his second straight day with a back issue and defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin being listed as questionable after injuring his ankle in practice Thursday.The Browns are already thin on their defensive front after end Phil Taylor underwent knee surgery and Billy Winn was ruled out with a quad injury.At least there appears to be a chance the Browns will have Haden. He got hurt last week in Clevelands comeback win at Tennessee but did not miss a snap. Earlier this week, Haden was limited to riding a stationary bike and working with a trainer but on Friday he ran, jumped and backpedalled during the 20-minute portion of practice open to reporters.Afterward, coach Mike Pettine said it was nice to have Haden back.It was good, he said. He got a little bit of work off to the side. He was limited, very limited. Hopefully he has a good day tomorrow getting some treatment. Were hopeful. Its a game-time decision, but we hope hell be able to go obviously.If Haden cant play, Pettine said rookie Justin Gilbert will start. Gilbert has been a major disappointment this season, but the Browns are sticking with the No. 8 overall pick, who had a strong few days of practice.He came out and did his job, Pettine said. He had a great attitude, competed, made some plays. He just raised his level of consistency. He still made some mistakes, but I would say it was his best week of practice.Krugers injury is a bit mysterious. Pettine would not offer any details, saying only that it didnt happen at practice or while Kruger was lifting weights.Kruger has been one of the few bright spots for Clevelands defence, which has not played up to expectations and enters Sundays game ranked 31st in yards allowed.Hes played well, Pettine said. He was a little bit anxious against Baltimore (his former team) and tried to do a little more than what he needed to. But other than that, I think that hes been real solid for us.If Kruger is out or limited, Pettine said Eric Martin would get snaps at outside linebacker with Barkevious Mingo and Jabaal Sheard.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Christian Kirk Jersey . Louis still looking for a way out of Tampa Bay, the 38-year-old NHL veteran isnt showing his cards. Benson Mayowa Cardinals Jersey .A. remained bitter for Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers on the long flight back home to New York. http://www.thecardinalsshoponline.com/jo...jersey-55/ .Cullen scored the go-ahead goal at 13:47 of the third period and Nashville beat the slumping Dallas Stars 3-2 on Thursday in a game that wasnt decided until the last shot of the night. Chad Williams Cardinals Jersey . Hattestad managed to avoid the carnage midway through the mens final, as a crash took out three skiers, essentially leaving two men vying for gold. The Norwegian posted a time of 3:38.39, outlasting Swedens Teodor Peterson, who took silver with a time of 3:39. Sam Bradford Jersey .com) - The 12th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes continue a four-game homestand at Value City Arena on Wednesday night when they face off against the High Point Panthers in a non-conference matchup.Grapevine, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - TCU and Baylor didnt play in a conference championship game. Despite 11-1 records, theyre out and Big Ten winner Ohio State is into the national semifinals. A day after their 59-0 rout of Wisconsin, the Buckeyes jumped to fourth in the College Football Playoff rankings on Sunday, giving Urban Meyers team a shot at the national title. SEC winner Alabama (12-1) remained No. 1 in the rankings and Pac-12 champion Oregon (12-1) stayed No. 2. ACC winner and reigning national champion Florida State (13-0) moved up one spot to No. 3. Alabama will play Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1. Oregon will take on Florida State in the Rose Bowl, also on New Years Day. The winners will play for the national championship on Jan. 12 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The playoffs replaced the oft-criticized BCS, which was in place from 1998 until last season. Controversy did not die with the old system. The 12-member committee had some tough decisions and there were big changes from last week. TCU fell from third to sixth despite a 55-3 rout of Iowa State on Saturday. Baylor, which was sixth in the rankings last week, gained a share of the Big 12 title with TCU thanks to a 38-27 win over Kansas State Saturday night and moved to No. 5. Baylor beat TCU 61-58 on Oct. 11. They need to have somebody on there that knows the teams in this part of the nation, Baylor coach Art Briles said referring to the makeup of the committee. The only person born on the south in that committee is Condoleezza Rice. When Archie Manning went off, I said were in trouble. Despite being down to its third-string quarterback, Ohio State (12-1) was able to get into the semifinals by winning its 11th consecutive game since losing to Virginia Tech 35-21 on Sept. 6. Alabama (12-1) heads to thhe Sugar Bowl off a 42-13 rout of Missouri in the SEC championship game.dddddddddddd. The Crimson Tide have won eight in a row since a 23-17 loss at Ole Miss on Oct. 4. The opportunity to host two national powers with such great tradition is a true honor, said Sugar Bowl CEO Paul Hoolahan. Alabama boasts 15 national championships and met the challenge of another difficult SEC season, while Ohio State has been a perennial power in the Big Ten and has seven national titles of its own. With all that, we have little doubt that this game will produce another memorable chapter in the great history of the Sugar Bowl. Oregon (12-1) pounded Arizona 51-13 Friday night in the Pac-12 title game. Led by quarterback Marcus Mariota, the Heisman Trophy favorite, the Ducks have also won eight straight games. Their only loss came Oct. 2 to Arizona. Obviously the inaugural year of the College Football Playoff is exciting for our team and our fans, and its that much more exciting to be at the Rose Bowl, Oregon coach Mark Helfrich said. The Seminoles (13-0) captured their third straight ACC title with a 37-35 win over Georgia Tech Saturday night. Florida State, which entered the game No. 4 in the CFP rankings, extended its winning streak to 29 games. Were a very fast team ourselves, but they do it at such a high level, and with their efficiency, its off the charts, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said of the Ducks. Theyre unbelievably explosive at what they do. Both teams will have the same opportunity to learn each others tendencies, and its a chance for both coaches to put in things that break your tendencies. It will be the first-ever meeting between Florida State and Oregon, while Alabama is 3-0 all-time against Ohio State. The last time the teams met was at the Citrus Bowl in January 1995.

The Lions sputtered for most of the game before Tate caught Staffords pass around his own 35, turned up the field and outran two New Orleans defenders who looked as if they had good angles to make the tackle.Tate caught 10 passes for 154 yards, both career highs.That play he made on that long touchdown is as good of a play as Ive seen in a long time, said Stafford, who has seen his share of impressive receiving plays in Detroit. Gave him a chance on a ball. He came back and caught it, he did the rest.Then it was up to Detroits defence — which came into the game ranked No. 1 in the NFL — to give the offence another chance. The Lions had timeouts remaining, and the Saints let Brees try to throw for a first down. His pass over the middle was intercepted, giving Detroit a short field.We knew on third down that Drew likes to go to the sticks, and he likes to throw in the middle of the field, Quin said. The D-line was closing in on him, and he tried to look me off a little bit, but he was trying to hit the tight end or somebody coming right across the field. All the film study, all the preparation added up, and we were able to make a big play.On fourth-and-5 from the 9, Stafford threw toward running back Reggie Bush, who had not been much of a factor against his former team. Bush appeared to be short of the first-down marker, and the ball fell incomplete — but Rafael Bush arrived a bit early, and the penalty gave the Lions a new set of downs.Fuller made a nice jumping catch in the back of the end zone and got both feet down for the final touchdown.Cornerback Darius Slay broke up a fourth-down pass by Brees with 21 seconds remaining to seal the win. During one stretch in the fourth quarter, Brees went 10 straight passes without a completion, the longest dry spell of his career, according to STATS.The worst feeling in professional sports is when you feel like you let your team down, Brees said. Thats the way I feel right now with that interception.Brees did throw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, including a 46-yarder to Kenny Stills in the third quarter that put New Orleans ahead 17-3. Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns, although he threw a pair of interceptions that nearly cost Detroit dearly.Stafford forced a pass into coverage late in the first quarter, and Keenan Lewis picked it off, giving the Saints the ball at the Detroit 29. Brees found Austin Johnson for a 13-yard touchdown to make it 7-0.Matt Prater kicked a 21-yard field goal for the Lions, banking it through off the left upright. Not to be outdone, Shayne Graham banked a 27-yard field goal through off the left upright on the final play of the half, giving New Orleans a 10-3 lead.Stills slipped behind the defence on the first drive of the second half and gathered in Brees deep pass to give New Orleans a two-touchdown lead. The Lions answered with a 12-play, 80-yard drive that ended with Joique Bells 1-yard scoring run.Grahams 48-yard field goal made it 20-10 with 13:33 remaining. Detroit then drove into the red zone, but tight end Jordan Thompson dropped a pass, and the ball bounced right to Kenny Vaccaro for an interception.NOTES: New Orleans TE Jimmy Graham, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury, played but did not catch a pass. He was targeted only twice. ... Saints C Jonathan Goodwin left in the second quarter with a left leg injury. New Orleans also lost NT Brodrick Bunkley in the second half to a concussion, and fellow DL Glenn Foster left with a knee injury. ... Stafford tied Bobby Layne for Detroits career lead with his 118th touchdown pass.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Matt Slauson Colts Jersey .

  just never really found his fastball,
Posted by: xzq717 - 32 minutes ago - Forum: Software - No Replies

The month of May seems like so long ago for the Blue Jays. Since building a healthy lead in the East with an incredible 21-9 record in the second month of the season, the Jays have fallen off dramatically. Since June 1, they are only 14-19 and have actually only won eight of their last 27 games. They are still only two games back of first place Baltimore in the East but if the slide doesnt stop now, its going to be all over by the end of this month. A boost to the starting rotation would have been a good thing when the Jays were in first place and tearing up the league at the plate. But with Brett Lawrie gone for the rest of July with his broken finger, and now Edwin Encarnacion on the 15-day DL with a Grade 2 quad muscle strain, the Jays need to add a bat - preferably someone who can play second base or third or both. It almost has to be a right-hand bat considering the Jays are the worst hitting team in the American League against lefties. Since the Jays are in buying mode theyll probably have to target the teams that have no reasonable hope of getting even a Wild Card berth. In the American League, I count six teams that are realistically out of it, although Im still hesitant to count out Tampa Bay because the East is so weak. So for arguments sake, the six are Tampa Bay in the East, the White Sox and Minnesota in the Central and Texas and Houston in the West. Since Boston and Tampa Bay likely wont trade within their own division, that leaves four teams the Jays can talk with. Since Houston wont give up Jose Altuve and the Twins likely wont surrender Brian Dozier who fit the bill as right-handed hitters and solid second baseman, youre down to Texas and the White Sox. Since the Rangers are so injury ravaged, I cant see them making any significant deals until the off-season. That leaves Chicago. The White Sox have a right-hand hitting second baseman in Gordon Beckham, whom the Blue Jays were rumoured to be interested in in the off-season. Beckham is hitting .248 this season with seven homers and 24 runs batted in. Hes 24 years old. Cleveland is hanging around the .500 mark and isnt technically out, but in a week or two could decide to move some people. Theyve got 33-year-old utilityman Mike Aviles - yes, the same guy the Blue Jays got as compensation from Boston for manager John Farrell. Hes a .272 career hitter who can play second or third and maybe even shortstop in an emergency. In the National League, the six teams on the outside looking in include the Mets and the Phillies in the East, the Cubs in the Central and San Diego, Colorado and Arizona in the West. The Phils have a good one in Chase Utley, but he reportedly wont waive his no-trade clause to go to a team with artificial turf such as the Blue Jays. The Mets Daniel Murphy is rumoured to be available, but he is New Yorks only All-Star rep and hits left handed. Still, hes hitting .294 with seven homers and 35 runs batted in go with 11 stolen bases. The Cubs Darwin Barney at 28 is having his second straight down year at the plate, hitting .219 though he does hit right. The Jays may have an interest in a man they originally drafted in second baseman Aaron Hill. Aaron is two years removed from his last great season with the D-Backs and is hitting only .241 this season with six homers and 42 runs batted in. The right-handed hitter is also 32 years old and is owed just shy of $30 million through 2016. J.P Morosi of Fox Sports has heard that the Jays are talking with San Diego about third baseman Chase Headley. The 30-year-old switch hitter, who has had back trouble on and off over the past couple of years, is only hitting .217 with six homers and 25 runs batted in. On top of that, any team acquiring him would have to make a qualifying offer of about $15 million to retain a draft pick at the end of the first round should Headley decide to walk. Then again if he decides to stay, a team is on the hook for $15 million for a player who may or may not be worth anything close to that. The Padres also have a 25-year-old right hand hitting second baseman in Jedd Gyorko, who cracked 23 homers last year in his first season. But this time around hes only batting .162 with five homers and 24 runs batted in. Of that entire bunch, I would probably opt for the Mets Murphy with Aaron Hill a close second. Unusual Repair Talk about the miracles of modern surgery. On Monday Arizona GM Kevin Towers is having surgery to repair a damaged vocal cord. Hes having it replaced with the vocal cord from a cadaver. Towers figures he will be able to talk again in three or four days and should be back at work in a week. Boston Turnaround They still have over 70 games to go, but the Boston Red Sox are close to doing something very unusual: going from last place, to first and a World Series victory, and back to last place. The Bosox dropped back into the basement behind Tampa Bay at 39-49. In 2012 under Bobby Valentine, they finished 69-93. Then a year ago John Farrell led them to a 97-65 mark and a World Series victory over St. Louis and now they are cellar dwellers again. Patrick McCaw Jersey . The Union looked to have grabbed a big win in the 88th minute when Amobi Okugo finally put the hosts in front. But a terrible giveaway by Union goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi handed Earnshaw the equalizer in the second minute of stoppage time, keeping the Union two points back of fifth-place Red Bull New York for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Kevin Durant Jersey . Abduraimova had not won a tour-level match since 2009 but was a wild-card entry in Tashkent and broke her opponent twice in each set to reach the second round.

Golden State Warriors Jerseys .Y. -- The New York Islanders were seeking a positive finish to a frustrating season on home ice.ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays finally scored a run, and got a victory too. Desmond Jennings had a two-run single during a four-run fourth inning and the Rays snapped a club-record 31-inning scoring drought en route to beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 Wednesday night. "Outstanding," Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. "The guys needed that, and you could just see them relax immediately." Tampa Bay, which won for just the second time in 16 games, had been shut out in its previous three games. The Rays had scored 35 runs over the previous 15 games. "Its been so awkward to watch this other side of this whole thing," Maddon said. "Im not going to say were cured, but I definitely believe its a step in the right direction." Yadier Molina had two RBIs for the Cardinals, who entered with three consecutive shutout pitching performances. St. Louis pitchers had their streak of 30 scoreless innings end. The Rays big fourth inning came against Michael Wacha (4-5). Matt Joyce had an RBI single, with a second run scoring when centre fielder Peter Bourjos was charged with an error for misplaying the hit. After Wacha walked Yunel Escobar and Ryan Hanigan to load the bases, Jennings drove in two with a single. "Thats a great feeling to come through and really kick-start the party," Joyce said. Wacha allowed four runs, four hits and four walks in five innings. "He just never really found his fastball, for whatever reason," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "His timing was off and it was a fight for him." Wacha had given up three runs or less in 13 straight starts to begin the season, which was the longest season-opening stretch by a Cardinals pitcher since a 14-game run by Lee Meadows in 1917. Bourjos was robbed of an extra-base hit with the bases loaded and two outs in the fifth when right fielder Kevin Kiermaier made a full-extension diving catch on a liner.dddddddddddd "Kiermaier flying through the air, thats the play of the game," Maddon said. "Kiermaiers play was totally uplifting." Bourjos called it unbelievable. "Initially when it left the bat I didnt see anybody over there," Bourjos said. "But he covered a lot of ground." Tampa Bay extended its lead to 6-3 in the seventh on Evan Longorias RBI single and a sacrifice fly by James Loney. Molina hit a two-run third-inning single before Matt Carpenter put the Cardinals ahead 3-0 on a run-scoring single in the fourth. Rays starter Erik Bedard lasted just four innings, giving up three runs and eight hits. The left-hander entered with the best ERA (2.51) all-time in interleague play with at least 25 starts. Juan Carlos Oviedo (2-2) went 1 1-3 innings for the win. Grant Balfour threw the final 2 1-3 innings for his 10th save. NOTES: The Cardinals are optimistic that ace Adam Wainwrights right elbow discomfort is not a serious issue. He returned to St. Louis for tests . ...

DETROIT - The first priority was to get the ball back, and Detroit was in good position to do that on third-and-long.Then safety Glover Quin turned a crucial defensive stand into something even better.Quins interception late in the fourth quarter gave the Lions great field position, and Matthew Stafford found Corey Fuller for the winning touchdown moments later, capping a dramatic comeback in Detroits 24-23 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.The Lions trailed 23-10 before Stafford threw two scoring passes in the final 3:38 — with Quins interception coming between them.Our defence did a great job of getting us the ball back, Stafford said. We fight, we never gave up, obviously had to have some things go our way, made some plays and won the game.The Saints (2-4) were in control late in the fourth quarter when Stafford found Golden Tate for a 73-yard catch-and-run that made it 23-17. Then Drew Brees was intercepted on third down by Quin, whose 23-yard return gave the Lions (5-2) the ball at the New Orleans 14.Detroit caught another break when Rafael Bush was called for pass interference on fourth down. Stafford eventually connected with Fuller in the back of the end zone for a 5-yard touchdown and the win.The Saints committed 12 penalties for 134 yards.I thought the penalties ended up hurting us, New Orleans coach Sean Payton said. I wasnt happy with how that game was officiated. Ill leave it at that, and yet that wasnt the reason in the end.Detroit won for the second straight week without star receiver Calvin Johnson, who is nursing an ankle problem. The Lions sputtered for most of the game before Tate caught Staffords pass around his own 35, turned up the field and outran two New Orleans defenders who looked as if they had good angles to make the tackle.Tate caught 10 passes for 154 yards, both career highs.That play he made on that long touchdown is as good of a play as Ive seen in a long time, said Stafford, who has seen his share of impressive receiving plays in Detroit. Gave him a chance on a ball. He came back and caught it, he did the rest.Then it was up to Detroits defence — which came into the game ranked No. 1 in the NFL — to give the offence another chance. The Lions had timeouts remaining, and the Saints let Brees try to throw for a first down. His pass over the middle was intercepted, giving Detroit a short field.We knew on third down that Drew likes to go to the sticks, and he likes to throw in the middle of the field, Quin said. The D-line was closing in on him, and he tried to look me off a little bit, but he was trying to hit the tight end or somebody coming right across the field. All the film study, all the preparation added up, and we were able to make a big play.On fourth-and-5 from the 9, Stafford threw toward running back Reggie Bush, who had not been much of a factor against his former team. Bush appeared to be short of the first-down marker, and the ball fell incomplete — but Rafael Bush arrived a bit early, and the penalty gave the Lions a new set of downs.Fuller made a nice jumping catch in the back of the end zone and got both feet down for the final touchdown.Cornerback Darius Slay broke up a fourth-down pass by Brees with 21 seconds remaining to seal the win. During one stretch in the fourth quarter, Brees went 10 straight passes without a completion, the longest dry spell of his career, according to STATS.The worst feeling in professional sports is when you feel like you let your team down, Brees said. Thats the way I feel right now with that interception.Brees did throw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, including a 46-yarder to Kenny Stills in the third quarter that put New Orleans ahead 17-3. Stafford threw for 299 yards and two touchdowns, although he threw a pair of interceptions that nearly cost Detroit dearly.Stafford forced a pass into coverage late in the first quarter, and Keenan Lewis picked it off, giving the Saints the ball at the Detroit 29. Brees found Austin Johnson for a 13-yard touchdown to make it 7-0.Matt Prater kicked a 21-yard field goal for the Lions, banking it through off the left upright. Not to be outdone, Shayne Graham banked a 27-yard field goal through off the left upright on the final play of the half, giving New Orleans a 10-3 lead.Stills slipped behind the defence on the first drive of the second half and gathered in Brees deep pass to give New Orleans a two-touchdown lead. The Lions answered with a 12-play, 80-yard drive that ended with Joique Bells 1-yard scoring run.Grahams 48-yard field goal made it 20-10 with 13:33 remaining. Detroit then drove into the red zone, but tight end Jordan Thompson dropped a pass, and the ball bounced right to Kenny Vaccaro for an interception.NOTES: New Orleans TE Jimmy Graham, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury, played but did not catch a pass. He was targeted only twice. ... Saints C Jonathan Goodwin left in the second quarter with a left leg injury. New Orleans also lost NT Brodrick Bunkley in the second half to a concussion, and fellow DL Glenn Foster left with a knee injury. ... Stafford tied Bobby Layne for Detroits career lead with his 118th touchdown pass.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Matt Slauson Colts Jersey .

CALGARY - The CFLs marquee player gave the Calgary Stampeders a real scare in their 29-8 win over the Montreal Alouettes to open the season Saturday. Jon Cornish lay face down on the field in the fourth quarter after the Stampeders running back took a high, hard hit on the run from Alouettes linebacker Kyries Hebert. It looked grim for the CFLs leading rusher and most outstanding player in 2013 when an ambulance was summoned onto the field. But an immediate trip to the hospital wasnt required as the 29-year-old from New Westminster, B.C., got up and walked to the clubhouse accompanied by medical staff. "I was knocked out," Cornish said following the game. "Im going to have to go through concussion protocol 100 per cent. "Youd expect me to feel a little bit worse, but Im pretty good. I can remember what happened before and immediately after." What happened a few minutes before that play was Cornish running for an 18-yard touchdown off a direct snap to pad Calgarys lead to 26-1. The Stampeders posted the CFLs best record last season at 14-4 and were quick out of the gates to start 2014. An opening-day starter for the first time in his CFL career, quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell was efficient throwing for 313 yards, a pair of touchdowns and zero interceptions. The Texan completed 16 of 25 passes. He threw out of Calgarys end zone to Maurice Price for a 102-touchdown pass in the opening quarter and tossed to Anthony Parker for another major in the fourth. Rene Paredes kicked a pair of field goals and punter Rob Maver contributed two punt singles in front of announced attendance of 26,135 at McMahon Stadium. Cornish had 67 yards on 14 carries before leaving the game. "I thought we played very physical on both sides of the football and special teams, we played fast," Stampeder coach and general manager John Hufnagel said. "I think we took a first right step going in the direction we want to go. A lot of work to be done though." Montreal, 8-10 last season, have large wrinkles to iron out on both sides of the football. Troy Smiths season debut for the Alouettes marked the first time since 1999 a quarterback other than Anthony Calvillo was Montreals opening-day starter. The CFLs all-time passing leader retired in January after 16 seasons with the Alouettes. Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner with Ohio State, completed 17 of 40 passes for 127 yards. He was sacked four times and intercepted once. Sean Whytes punt single was Montreals only point until fullback Steven Lumbala dove for a one-yard major on the final play of the game. A gaffe by Montreals secondary left Price open for his touchdown as the Als had two defenders on Calgary receiver Jeff Fuller. "I dont feel good at all," Smith said. "Theres a whole different feel when you leave the field after a weeks work of preparation and nothing works. "You definitely have to look yourself in the mirror and you have to understand that things arent going to go the exact ideal way that you want them to all the time. "Youve got to go back to the drawing board and accept the Calgary Stampeders played a great game today. They game-planned and they paid also, and they made plays." Former NFL star receiver Chad Johnson had two catches for 20 yards in his CFL debut. "Ive got a long way to go, man," Johnson said. "With this being my first time experiencing a real live game with the bullets flying, the level of competition is really not that far off from the NFL and the speed of the game is equivalent." Hebert was slapped with a major foul and ejected for his hit on Cornish. Calgary parlayed Montreals 25-yard penalty into another touchdown as Mitchell threw to Parker in the end zone. Cornish says hes yet to be diagnosed with a concussion in his career. The leagues top rusher the past two seasons said he bore Hebert no ill-will. "I dont really blame him," Cornish said. "I got a pretty good cut block on him earlier in the game, so thats how it goes sometimes." Hufnagel had said it was a "photo finish" between Mitchell and Drew Tate in choosing a first-day starting quarterback. Mitchell cleaned up his game considerably Saturday after a pre-season loss to the Lions a week earlier, when he completed half his pass attempts and was intercepted twice. The quarterback checked off the boxes of throwing touchdowns, moving the offence and not allowing any interceptions Saturday. "Im still not going to check the box of going out and doing exactly what I wanted to do and thats just making sure were executing on everything we can," Mitchell said. "A couple plays early on I can myself clean up. "I felt like there was a quarter where we didnt move the ball very well. I felt like I played good, but its easy when your receivers are making those kind of plays and your O-line is giving you time." Paredes, winner of the CFLs special-teams player award last season, booted field goals from 25 and 38 yards in the game. Maver kicked punt singles of 78 and 88 yards. Whyte was wide on a 39-yard attempt midway through the first quarter. Calgarys defence held the Als under 100 offensive yards in the first half when Charleston Hughes, Corey Mace and DeQuin Evans each recorded sacks and Hughes knocked down a pass. Juwan Simpson also sacked Smith later in the game. Cornerback Fred Bennett would have collected two interceptions in the half had his second not been negated by Deron Mayos horse-collar tackle on Smith. The Stampeders head immediately into their bye week. Their next game is in Toronto against the Argonauts on July 12. The Als host the B.C. Lions on Friday.

And why wouldnt I when you stop 42 shots? The second period was his best work when he made at least six big saves on Jack Johnson, Ryan Johansen and Brandon Dubinsky. But its not the saves you make, its the goals you allow.

He was confident, in control and played an aggressive game. Lehtonen was good with the puck again, even to the point where he went for the empty-netter with under a minute to play. Ryan Miller, St. Louis (3) - The game-winning goal was a great look by Patrick Kane, who went short side past Kevin Shattenkirks leg. Miller made big saves on Brandon Saad, Andrew Shaw, Bryan Bickell and Kane earlier in the game and was very solid in his crease work through screens and tips. He didnt have much chance on backdoor play by Kane and tips by Bickell and Shaw. Corey Crawford, Chicago (3) - Crawford had two big saves on T.J. Oshie and Vladimir Tarasenko in OT to bounce back from two quickies in the last minute of the second period. The Tarasenko goal snuck just over the pad and under the glove short side - one he needs to have, but resiliency and mental toughness always come to mind when I think of Crawford, a battler whom his team plays hard for.

MEXICO CITY -- Mexico swept to a 5-1 victory over New Zealand in the first leg of their intercontinental playoff on Wednesday to become the overwhelming favourite for a place at next years World Cup finals. Paul Aguilar put Mexico ahead in the 32nd minute and Raul Jimenez made 2-0 before the break. Oribe Peralta added two more in the second half before Rafael Marquez scored in the 84th and Chris James grabbed a consolation goal for New Zealand a minute later. Mexico, which was lucky to reach the playoff, now just needs to finish the job in the second leg next Wednesday in Wellington, New Zealand. "Were going to go there like the score is 0-0, like we need a winning goal," Mexico coach Miguel Herrera said. Mexico scored only seven goals in 10 qualifying games, but broke through under new coach Herrera. Herrera, the fourth Mexico coach in two months, used only players based in the national league, omitting stars like Javier Hernandez of Manchester United. That focus on domestic league players was partly to deal with Mexico Citys altitude of 2,240 metres (7,350 feet), which seemed to fatigue New Zealand. Herrera, who also coaches Mexican club America, was hired for only the two playoff matches, declined to speculate about his future. "I am the coach for two games, and I won an important one," Herrera said. "Afterward they (Mexican football federation) will decide and we hope they make the right decision. One could put together a sensational team." Mexico finished behind the United States, Costa Rica and Honduras in CONCACAF qualifying, with those three advancing automatically to Brazil. Mexico only secured fourth place after the United States scored two late goals last month to defeat Panama -- which was winning at the time and would have reached the playoff. Aguilar broke the deadlock by chipping in from 10 metres (yards) after keeper Glen Moss was caught off his line and Jimenez found the net eight minutes later with a close-range header after threatening to score several times. Only Moss, who made several acrobatic saves, kept Mexico from scoring more in the first half at Azteca stadium. Moss punched away a shot from Jimenez in the 18th, which nearly crossed the line. In the 24th, Francisco Rodriguez hit the crossbar, and in the 27th Moss stopped Jimenezs shot from point-blank range. Peralta put the match beyond New Zealands reach just three minutes after the re-start, collecting a cross from the left and slotting home from six meters (yards), and then scored his second with an 80th-minute header. Marquez then nodded home Mexicos fifth, before James scored with a volley off the post. It was the second one-sided victory of the day. Earlier, Uruguay hammered Jordan 5-0 away in another intercontinental playoff for next years World Cup in Brazil. Dennis Smith Jr. Authentic Jersey .

Gone will be the fear of impending doom that enveloped the club during its second-round comeback against Pittsburgh. Missing will be the nerves that any goal or loss could mean the end of the season. Suddenly, the Rangers are the front-runners against the Montreal Canadiens, and their fans now have the chance to celebrate the ride with them. "Having fan support is obviously huge," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "Unconditional love, its something thats really beneficial to a team." New York is riding a five-game winning streak, but four of those victories came on the road -- two in Pittsburgh when the Rangers erased a 3-1 series deficit, and the first two in this matchup with Montreal. The Rangers will skate at the Garden on Thursday night with a series lead for the first time since Game 2 of the first round against Philadelphia 15 games ago. "Its a good feeling, but we know weve accomplished nothing yet," forward Martin St. Louis said. "Were trying to prepare for a Montreal team thats going to come out with a lot of energy. We know that. This is a big game for everybody. We know where the series is, and its a big opportunity for us." Nothing is a guarantee, but to take a 3-0 series lead would set the Rangers up for their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals since 1994. Since New York fell way behind Pittsburgh with a dispirited home loss in Game 4, the Rangers have been playing with a sense of desperation. It didnt reset once they eliminated the Penguins, and so far they have shown no signs they will let the Canadiens recover. "I feel every game is a must-win in the playoffs," St. Louis said. "You go into every game understanding what can happen with a loss and what can happen with a win. Its a lot of momentum shifting, a buildup in the playoffs, and you want to make sure you keep it as long as you can." The Canadiens mindset is to regroup and play the kind of road game the Rangers did by jumping on them. Montreal is still dealing with the loss of No. 1 goalie Carey Price, who was knocked out of the series by injury in the opener, but now is trying to rally around third-stringer Dustin Tokarski. The iinexperienced goalie, who has played in only 11 career NHL games, got the surprise nod by coach Michel Therrien in Game 2 over regular backup Peter Budaj and was tabbed again Wednesday to start in Game 3.dddddddddddd. Struggled forward Thomas Vanek was dropped to the fourth line in practice on Wednesday alongside Danny Briere and Brandon Prust in another potential shake-up. "Dont read too much, OK?" Therrien said. "They might change tomorrow." Whatever the lineup looks like, the Canadiens have adopted a motto of no excuses as the series shifts to New York. "We lost the first two games. Weve got to do something different," Canadiens captain Brian Gionta said Wednesday in Montreal before the team flew south. "But at the same time, we had a pretty good game in Game 2. Weve just got to find ways to get more goals and get to them a little more offensively." They netted only two in a blowout loss in the opener, and then scored one on Monday in a 3-1 loss. The Canadiens grabbed what had been an all-important first goal, but they lost the lead just 17 seconds later and were trailing 2-1 before the first period ended. Henrik Lundqvist was the main reason the Rangers were ahead, holding off an early attack and then a third-period surge in which he stopped all 19 Canadiens shots. He made 40 saves overall. "We are down two, and we are going on the road," said forward Max Pacioretty, who scored the lone Montreal goal in Game 2. "Obviously, we would have liked to have Game 2, but we can only worry about Game 3. Weve got to be better. "We have to make life difficult for their goalie, and if we do that, I like our teams chances." Pacioretty, a Connecticut native, is also looking forward to the atmosphere at the Garden, even though he will be wearing an enemy sweater. "I love MSG," he said. "I grew up watching games there. I love going there. I havent played in the finished building yet, so this will be fun for me." One person who hopes to be back on the ice on Thursday is Rangers forward Derick Brassard, who was injured early in the opener and missed all of Game 2. He went through a full practice on Wednesday and was waiting to meet with the medical staff and Vigneault to see if he would rejoin the lineup. Fellow forward Benoit Pouliot sat out for a maintenance day.

"This is a deal thats not going to come together," Orioles executive vice-president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said on a conference call. Duquette declined to say what specifically concerned him about Balfour, who turns 36 later this month. Balfour had shoulder and elbow surgeries that kept him out of the majors in 2005 and 2006. "The Orioles were disappointed we couldnt complete a contract with Grant Balfour," Duquette said. Baltimore and Balfour agreed Tuesday to a $15 million, two-year contract that included $1 million in deferred payments, a deal dependent on the physical. Duquette said the team would not seek to restructure the agreement. "Were going to turn our attention elsewhere for now," Duquette said. The Orioles were hoping Balfour, who had 62 saves over the last two years for Oakland, would replace Jim Johnson. Baltimore traded Johnson, who had 101 saves in 2012 and 2013 to the Athletics on Dec. 2. "Grant is completely healthy and that was told to us today by Dr. Koco Eaton, a well-respected club physician," said Seth Levinson, one of Balfours agents. Levinson said Reds team physician Dr. Timothy Kremchek "reviewed the Orioles medical report and advised that he is remarkably impressed that there has been little change in Grants arm for almost 10 years." "The only reasonable conclusion is that Grant is healthy and the Orioles at the last moment changed their minds," Levinson said. Baltimore could trade for a closer, sign another free agent or use an existing player. Duquette pointed out that Johnson did not come through the minors as a closer. "The good news is we have other options to look at," Duquette said. Besides Balfour, there are two other prominent free agent closers still available, Chris Perez and Fernando Rodney. Perez saved 123 games over the last four seasons for Cleveland, and Rodney saved 85 in the last two years for Tampa Bay. The Orioles have lost right-handed pitcher Scott Feldman, second baseman Brian Roberts and outfielder Nate McLouth in free agency during the off-season. Duquette said the team still hopes to make some moves. "Were not done yet," he said. Baltimore signed lefty-hitting outfielder Xavier Paul to a minor league deal. He was not offered a contract by Cincinnati earlier this month. Paul batted .244 with seven home runs and 32 RBIs in 97 games with the Reds in 2013. Authentic Korey Cunningham Jersey .

When he was finally done for the night, he left the San Francisco Giants feeling ill. Chacin shook off a high fever to put in a masterful outing Wednesday night. The righty did not allow a hit until there were two outs in the seventh inning and hustled for a crucial RBI to help the Colorado Rockies beat the Giants 5-4. Vying for the second no-hitter in franchise history and second ever at Coors Field, Chacin (13-7) tied a season high with nine strikeouts. Brandon Crawfords single to centre field was the only hit Chacin allowed in seven innings. He also yielded an unearned run. "Man, he was good tonight," manager Walt Weiss said. "His breaking ball had some depth to it. He got a lot of swings and missed with his breaking ball." It was a big change from Tuesday, when Chacin left Coors Field wondering if he would make his scheduled start. He said his fever reached 100.6 and he wasnt able to stay in the dugout during the game, so he retired to the clubhouse and slept on a couch. "I was really bad. I told (the trainers) if I felt the same today I couldnt pitch," Chacin said. "I couldnt even do the chart yesterday. They gave me pills to make feel better. This morning I woke up, I called them to say I feel better. "I always want to pitch so it would have to be really bad for me not to pitch," Chacin added. He worked around three errors and threw 92 pitches through six innings, but Weiss said he was going to let Chacin stay in until he gave up a hit. "We were going to let him chase a no-hitter as long as it took," he said. "After he gave up the hit I didnt want to let him go after that." Crawford made it a moot point with a sharp single on an inside fastball. The crowd of 27,268 gave Chacin a standing ovation after Crawfords hit. "We couldnt figure him out," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He mixed it up, we chased some pitches and just couldnt get anything going against him." Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario had two hits each for Colorado, which built a 5-1 lead through six innings. Giants starter Madison Bumgarner (11-9) was effective until the sixth. He allowed just three hits -- including Nolan Arenados RBI double in the second before Colorado tagged him in the sixth. DJ LeMahieu led off the inning with a single, Tulowitzki walked and Rosario hit a bloop single to centre to make it 2-1. Jean Machi entered and got Arenado to hit a comebacker, but Crawford dropped the throw to secondd to load the bases.dddddddddddd Yorvit Torrealbas ground-rule double made it 4-1, and after an intentional walk Chacin beat out a potential double-play ball at first for another run. "I felt good and felt I made some pitches," Bumgarner said. "They just happened to find holes when they hit it." The Giants nearly left Chacin with a no-decision when they rallied for three runs in the eighth. Brandon Belt hit an RBI double, Buster Posey drove in another run with a groundout and Pence singled to make it 5-4. Rex Brothers worked the ninth for his 14th save. While Chacin was baffling the Giants, the defence behind him was suspect. Rosario, starting at first base for the third time this season, mishandled two straight grounders to start the third. Chacin got Bumgarner to pop up a bunt attempt, struck out Gregor Blanco and got Marco Scutaro to ground out to end the inning. "It was tough, but theyve picked me up with good plays all year and today was a day I had to pick them up," Chacin said. The Giants capitalized in the fourth. Belt walked and went to third when Tulowitzki fumbled Poseys potential double-play grounder. Pence hit into a double play to score Belt and make it 1-all. That was all the damage the Giants could do against Chacin. He mixed in his breaking ball and worked both sides of the plate to keep the hitters off-balance. "Everything was working for me today," he said. "My ball was sinking, my curveball was good and I got ground balls with my sinker." NOTES: Its the deepest a Colorado pitcher has taken a no-hitter at Coors Field. John Thomson didnt allow a hit for 6 1-3 innings against Pittsburgh on May 2, 2002. ... Ubaldo Jimenez pitched Colorados only no-hitter, on April 17, 2010, in Atlanta. Hideo Nomo has the only no-hitter at Coors Field on Sept. 17, 1996, while with the Los Angeles Dodgers. ...

CARSON, Calif. - A momentary lapse in focus Saturday night proved costly for the Vancouver Whitecaps. As a result, Robbie Keane scored in the 47th minute to give the Los Angeles Galaxy a 1-0 victory over Vancouver, stretching the Whitecaps losing streak at Stub Hub Center to five games. Since joining Major League Soccer in 2011, Vancouver has not won a game on the road against L.A. "In two seconds or five seconds, we lost the game," Vancouver midfielder Gershon Koffe said. Despite the temporary loss of focus, however, Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson viewed his teams performance as a solid one. "We showed that we were able to compete with the top teams away from home," Robinson said. "One minute of lack of concentration at the start of the second half cost us." The Galaxys Juninho began the scoring sequence with a long ball from midfield to Stefan Ishizaki on the right flank. With the Whitecaps Jay DeMerit marking him, Ishizaki saw an unmarked Keane racing toward the goal. Ishizaki sent the ball to Keane, who volleyed it with his left foot inside the left post from six yards. Kekuta Manneh had two chances to give the Whitecaps an early lead but Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo foiled him both times. In the 32nd minute, Manneh struck a 10-yard line drive that Penedo deflected while diving to his left. Then in the 45th minute, Penedo blocked Mannehs point-blank shot seven yards from the goal. "He was electric in the first half," Robinson said about Manneh, who made his first start of the season. "I think it would have been a different game (if Manneh had scored). I felt we were slightly on top in the first half." Vancouver displayed a dynamic defence during that half despite missing midfielder Matias Laba, who was suspended after being ejected April 5 against Colorado. The Whitecaps hustled after disputed balls, intercepted passes and applied pressure throughout the field. The Whitecaps had a chance to force a tie in the 77th minute, but Penedo leaped to grab Kenny Millers 8-yard glancing header off Nicolas Mezquidas corner kick. Penedo finished with four saves.

Denver made Moreno the 12th overall pick in the 2009 draft after he played at Georgia. He has career rushing totals of 3,468 yards and 26 touchdowns. Moreno became a social media sensation he cried during the national anthem before a game in December. He has been slowed by injuries and has played in all 16 games just twice in his career.

Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - World No. 1 great and 18-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams had to shake off a slow start before dispatching Vera Zvonareva in Thursdays second-round action at the Australian Open. Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova also reached the round of 32, while a battle of former world No. 1s saw Victoria Azarenka upset Caroline Wozniacki. The five-time Aussie Open and reigning U.S. Open chap Williams trailed late in the first set before ultimately taking a 7-5, 6-0 win over the unseeded Zvonareva of Russia. It marked a rematch of the 2010 Wimbledon final between the two, a match also captured by the American. Williams said Zvonareva, a two-time Grand Slam finalist who played only five tournaments in 2014, started out aggressive and I was a little too passive. So she told herself: You know Serena, youve done so well here, you have nothing to lose. Zvonareva won only eight points in the lopsided second set. Up next for Williams will be Ukrainian Elina Svitolina. The fourth-seeded Kvitova, fresh off her title in Sydney last week, took care of German Mona Barthel 6-2, 6-4, while sixth-seeded former Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska dispatched Swede Johanna Larsson 6-0, 6-1 on another hot day at Melbourne Park. Up next for the two-time Wimbledon champ Kvitova will be rising American Madison Keys, while Radwanska will take on American Varvara Lepchenko. Keys pulled off a minor upset of 29th-seeded Aussie Casey Dellacqua, 2-6, 6-1, 6-1. In the marquee match of the day, the unseeded two-time Aussie Open champ Azarenka vanquished the eighth-seeded U.S. Open runner-up Wozniacki 6-4, 6-2. Wozniacki said shes feels cursed at the Aussie Open. She also said while losing sucks she felt her good friend Azarenka was back to her best already after missing plenty of action last year due to injuries. Her level, its high, Wozniacki said. I think shes at the level that she left when she stopped playing. Azarenka and Wozniacki have now split eight career meetings. Wozniacki got the better of Azarenka in the third round at the 2008 U.S. Open in their lone previous Grand Slam matchup. Azarenka titled in Melbourne back-to-back in 2012 and 2013 before being slowed by a foot injury last year. I knew that Im unseeded so I can play anybody. I just accept whoever is on the opposite side (and) Im happy with the way I stayed consistent throughout the whole match, she said. I think theres always things you can improve, but its a great progress from one match to another. Azarenkas third-round opponent will be Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova. Serenas 18th-seeded sister, Venus, who was the 2003 Aussie runner-up to her sibling, defeated fellow American Lauren Davis 6-2, 6-3. Venus has yet to lose this year, going 7-0, including a title in Auckland, where she upset Wozniacki in the final. Venus will face Italian Camila Giorgi this weekend. Eleventh-seeded Slovak and last years Aussie runner-up Dominika Cibulkova moved on by downing Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova 6-2, 6-0, while American Coco Vandeweghe upended 20th-seeded former U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-4. Stosur has never reached a quarterfinal at her home major, where shes competed every year since 2005, with the exception of 2008. Cibulkova was last years Aussie runner-up to the since-retired Li Na. Meanwhile, 19th-seeded Alize Cornet defeated Denisa Allertova 6-4, 6-7 (2-7), 6-2; 24th-seeded Garbine Muguruza dropped Daniela Hantuchova 6-1, 1-6, 6-0; a 25th-seeded Zahlavova Strycova moved past Kai-Chen Chang 6-1, 7-5; the No. 26 seed Svitolina worked past Nicole Gibbs 7-6 (7-3), 7-6 (8-6); and a 30th-seeded Lepchenko defeated Ajla Tomljanovic 6-1, 7-6 (7-1). Lepchenko will face Radwanska on Saturday. Additional second-round results saw Giorgi ease past Tereza Smitkova 6-1, 6-4, Swiss Timea Bacsinszky beat Anna Tatishvili 6-7 (5-7), 6-3, 6-2, and American Madison Brengle cruise past compatriot Irina Falconi 6-1, 6-3. Brengle reached her first-ever WTA final in Hobart last week and will meet another fellow American, Vandeweghe, in the round of 32. In some third-round action on Friday, second-seeded Maria Sharapova will face 31st-seeded Kazakhstani Zarina Diyas; third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep will meet American Bethanie Mattek-Sands; seventh-seeded Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard will be opposed by Frances Caroline Garcia; and 10th-seeded Russian Ekaterina Makarova will battle 22nd-seeded rising Czech Karolina Pliskova, last weeks Sydney runner-up to Kvitova.

A decade later, the seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker smiled as he looked back.It was 2004. Briggs was in his second year and Smith was in his first as Chicago Bears coach.He challenged me all the time, Briggs said. It was always, Lance, youre not gonna make that play or hell never make that play. Hed always talk to Brian (Urlacher). Hed talk to some of the other guys, like, Lance cant make that play.There was plenty of reflecting Wednesday as the Bears prepared to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Smiths first game against them since he was fired two years ago.Briggs recalled earning Smiths respect and the change in tone over the years. It went from those motivational shots to the coach expressing faith in his linebackers ability to make plays, to help shut down opponents.Briggs insisted Smith should be remembered as one of the great coaches of Chicago along with George Halas and Mike Ditka.But its not that simple.Smith guided the Bears to an 81-63 record during a nine-season run from 2004-12 that produced three playoff appearances and a trip to the Super Bowl. But his stubbornness at times was a source of frustration in Chicago. So were the struggles in the second halves in each of his final two seasons that kept the Bears out of the playoffs.While his defence consistently excelled, Smith could never solve the problems on offence.That, along with the playoff misses ultimately led to his downfall, with the Bears firing him after they missed the post-season despite winning 10 games in 2012.Theyre 12-14 under Marc Trestman, and at 4-6, they will likely miss the post-season for the seventh time in eight years. Smith, meanwhile, is trying to build a winner in Tampa Bay after a year out of the league.The Buccaneers are 2-8 but just two games off the NFC South lead heading into Sundays game. As much as Smith insisted hes simply another coach trying to win at Soldier Field, even he could not avoid reflecting just a little on his time in Chicago.He called coaching there a dream come true. He said he was proud of everything we were able to do.Only Halas and Diitka coached the Bears longer and won more games than Smith, who had never been a head coach.ddddddddddddBefore that, he was an assistant on Tony Dungys staff in Tampa Bay and defensive co-ordinator in St. Louis.Being my first head coaching job, all of my philosophies and things that I thought I believed in, I got a chance to see, he said. Every imaginable situation you can be in as a head football coach, I feel like I had a chance to be in there (in Chicago). Just about any game — coaching the Hall of Fame game to a Super Bowl. Besides winning a Super Bowl, I think as a coach I got a chance to witness and be a part of just about everything you could want to as a coach. So there were a lot of things that came around.Smith said he loved the organization. He mentioned the players and the lifetime memories, the lifetime relationships he forged with the Bears.He did not seem too concerned about fans reactions on Sunday.I dont need anything validated this week, he said. Fans were great to me and my family while we were there, administration was.Players remain loyal, too.Bears defensive tackle Stephen Paea appreciated Smiths honesty. He also remembered getting the call from the Bears when they drafted him in 2011. On the other end was Smith, and the coach had a question for him.First thing he told me — How does it feel to play by Julius Peppers and Brian Urlacher? Paea said. I was like, Hell, yeah, Ill come to Chicago and play.Its gonna be an exciting game for us.NOTES: The Bears downplayed a players-only video session held last week. DE Jared Allen said defensive co-ordinator Mel Tucker approached him about holding one to give us an opportunity to take over as leaders and add some accountability to the defence. ... Briggs, RB Matt Forte and DT Jeremiah Ratliff sat out Wednesdays practice for non-injury reasons. DT Ego Ferguson (illness), WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), WR Brandon Marshall (ankle), DE Trevor Scott (knee), LB Darryl Sharpton (hamstring) and WR Chris Williams (hamstring) did not participate.
