Youve heard of Buccis Overtime Challenge? Well, this is Buccis Hat Trick Challenge. Cheap Vans Shoes Wholesale . Whats the challenge part? Regularly coming up with three hits about the World Cup of Hockey. Sundays games are Team Russia vs. Team Sweden (3 p.m. ET, ESPN) and Team Finland vs. Team North America (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2).1. Starting strong: For the first time in my broadcasting career, I got to say Crosby scores! Canada vs. the Czech Republic was my first non-#cawlidgehawkey play-by-play broadcast outside of the times I turned down the sound on the TV and broadcasted hockey games into my Panasonic tape recorder. (Girls LOVED me in my teenage years.) For my first broadcast of NHL players to be a Saturday night in Toronto describing the movements of 29-year-old Sidney Crosby, who has now entered his true prime intersection of mind, body and soul, well, it was exhilarating. Team Canada was a unit of energy, concentration and confidence against the Czechs in a 6-0 win. The Mike Babcock-Crosby-Carey Price triumvirate has no peer here at the World Cup of Hockey.2. On the other hand: Team USAs collective slog through oatmeal against Europe (a 3-0 loss) was surprising. It was a rainy, humid (90-plus-percent) day in Toronto on Saturday, and that did make ice quality a challenge, as humidity always does. Humidity is the enemy of fast, firm ice. Humidity is still high Sunday. It was surprising to see Kyle Palmieri and Dustin Byfuglien sit as healthy scratches. Coaches know their players better than we do, but Byfuglien is such a special, versatile force, I cant ever imagine not playing him. If Bill Belichick were a hockey coach, he would love using versatile players such as Byfuglien. I would think Palmieri and Byfuglien would be in versus Canada on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) and Jonathan Quick will return in net for the U.S.3. Marchand will cash in: Brad Marchands next contract will be something to watch for Boston Bruins and NHL fans of teams that want him. Marchand will become an unrestricted free agent next summer. For a seven-year deal, a team would be paying for Marchands age 29-35 seasons. An eight-year deal by the Bruins obviously makes the contract for ages 29-36. Marchand is in great shape and loves to train. In fact, a Bruins player told me last season that the Bruins have to slow Marchand down sometimes from overtraining. He should age well, and Mark Recchi, I think, is a good comparable to Marchand. Recchi continued to produce and be durable in his 29-36-year-old years. I think its going to take eight years at about $7 million per to sign Marchand, and Im surprised that it hasnt already been done by the Bruins. Teams will be lining up next summer if he becomes a UFA. Wholesale Vans Shoes For Sale .

Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko says Max Verstappen is light years ahead of most of his F1 rivals and thinks most of the criticism aimed at him this year comes from fear among the reigning establishment. Cheap Authentic Asics Shoes .Verstappen enjoyed a breakthrough 2016, winning his first race for Red Bull after being promoted from Toro Rosso ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix. The teenager, who is already rewriting Formula Ones record books, was handed his debut in 2015 aged just 17 despite criticism that he was too young to step up to the pinnacle of motorsport.Marko says Verstappens successful season has vindicated every decision Red Bull has made about the teenager.When asked by the official F1 website what the Dutchmans incredible performance in Brazil told him, he replied: That we were right to sign him and put him into Formula One at an age where everybody called us mad. And that he has proved ever since that he is something special.Verstappens drive in Brazil has already been compared alongside some of F1s greatest wet-weather performances, with an awe-struck Toto Wolff saying the teenager was redefining the laws of physics. Marko thinks Brazil, and not his maiden F1 win in Spain, proved the 19-year-olds massive potential.Hes shown on many occasions that he is light years away from your common Formula One driver by winning his first race sitting in a Red Bull. Yes, the two Mercedes drivers took each other out so this win probably fell in our laps, but Brazil showed that he is not only above average but that he will be a great one.The season has not been without controversy for Verstappen, who was criticised on a number of occasions this season for moving in the braking zone when defending positions. Those criticisms led to a clampdown of that move, which has now become known as the Verstappen Rule.However, Marko scoffs at those criticisms and believes Verstappen is a target because he is like nothing Formula One has ever seen before.What I see is that he brings a completely new approach to the reigning establishment! He shows them again how racing should be - how it was in the past. I remember when guys like Senna and Schumacher came, they also had a different approach and were a shock awakening for the establishment of their time.They also were criticised massively. Now we have a young, hungry, sexy young driver, with a devil-may-care attitude about the spoils of former champions - whether they have won once, twice, three times or even four times. Asics Uk Outlet . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. Asics Wholesale Uk . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. http://www.cheapasicsuk.com/ . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews has called Dilruwan Perera a silent hero after the offspinner became the first Sri Lanka player to take ten wickets and score a half-century in a Test. Perera was both the most economical and the most penetrative of Sri Lankas frontline bowlers in the match, taking 10 for 99. In the process he also became the fastest Sri Lankan to 50 Test wickets, achieving the milestone in 11 Tests, to beat Ajantha Mendis, who got there in 12.His second innings score of 64 was also higher than any the Australia batsmen have mustered, through the series so far.We talk a lot about Rangana Herath, but not as much about Dilruwan, Mathews said after the match. But hes just become the fastest Sri Lankan to 50 Test wickets. When Murali aiya was there, we didnt speak that much about Rangana, so I guess its the same thing with Dilruwan. Hes a silent hero. In the last match he didnt bowl well, but he was very diligent and knows how to bowl in Galle. He worked very hard in training with the coaches. Hes someone we can get a lot of profit from in the years to come.Perera said he had realised hed bowled too quickly in Pallekele, and had watched videos of his own bowling, and worked with spin coach Piyal Wijetunge to redress the problem. He took the key wicket of Australias top-scorer, David Warner, in each innings, and threatened both edges of virtually every other batsman through the match.After having a quiet first Test, he backed his potential and came back really hard, Mathews said. He was one bowler who the Australians found it really hard to score off, especially on this track.While much of Australias pre-series batting plans appeared to revolve around patience and batting long periods, Mathews said an attacking mindset had helped his team reap victory in the series. Mathews was among the most aggressive batsmen in the match, hitting 54 from 65 balls in the first innings, before maaking 47 from 69 in the second. Cheap Asics Shoes. Sri Lankas highest scorer in the first innings - Kusal Mendis - had progressed at a strike rate of 63.When youre playing on extreme conditions you cant just block the cricket ball, he said. Youre eventually going to get out to short leg or lbw. Youve got to start scoring runs. Youve got to sweep and reverse sweep. Sometimes youre still going to make mistakes, but youll find a way to score runs and upset the lines and lengths of the bowlers. We had to be scrappy.Despite having been instrumental to the victory in Pallekele, Lakshan Sandakan bowled only two balls in the first innings, and six overs in the second, though he did pick up two wickets. Mathews said he simply could not find an opportunity to bring the wristspinner on.Each time I wanted to bring Sandakan, either Dilruwan or Rangana got a wicket, so I couldnt change them. Dilruwan looked like taking a wicket every single ball, so I had to just keep bowling him. Herath on the other end just keeps the pressure on the batsman all the time. They were bowling brilliantly and Sandakan didnt get much of a chance to bowl on that wicket.Having endured a tough seven months until the end of July, and a winless tour of England, Mathews also thanked his team and fans for their support through a tough period.Well, my team backed me all the way through, so special thanks to them. Also thanks to SLC for backing us right throughout and also the selectors. They said well get a bit of stick when we lose a few games, but if we do our processes right, we will along the way win a few games. To beat the No. 1 team is very satisfying. We also thank the fans for being there with us. Its never an easy task when you lose games to keep persevering. They kept believing in us and supporting us. ' ' '

METAIRIE, La. Asics Outlet Uk . -- The mistake-prone New Orleans Saints can add a suddenly slumping offense to the list of reasons they will likely miss the playoffs for the third consecutive year.Drew Brees threw three interceptions for the second straight week in a 16-11 loss Sunday at Tampa Bay while receiving little help from his offensive teammates, leaving the Saints (5-8) grappling Monday with the frustration of another lost season. New Orleans, which has not been above .500 since 2013, trails the Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons in the NFC South by three games with three weeks left in the regular season.By the time the Saints kick off against Arizona in a late-afternoon game on Sunday, they could be eliminated from the NFC wild card picture. And a victory by either the Bucs or the Falcons on Sunday would end their division title hopes as well.The Saints face this disappointing scenario despite their formerly leaky defense holding Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston to no rushing or passing touchdowns for the first time in his college or professional career. New Orleans limited the Bucs to 270 yards without starting safety Kenny Vaccaro, who began serving a four-game suspension for using the banned substance Adderall.Its been the same story all season long, said veteran safety Roman Harper, who started and played 51 snaps in place of Vaccaro. When one unit plays well, we have another unit that does not. We havent been able to put a complete game together with all three units playing well. If we did that, we probably would have been pretty good.For the last two weeks, the primary issue has been an offense that still ranks No. 1 in the NFL in yards but has slowed dramatically.Brees has gone two straight games without a touchdown pass for only the second time in his 11 years with New Orleans. The Saints have scored one touchdown in that span, losing at home to Detroit 26-13 before managing three field goals and a safety against Tampa Bay.The Bucs limited the Saints to 46 rushing yards, their second lowest total of the season. Brees, sacked once and pressured several times, now leads the NFC in interceptions with 14.Were going to turn the ball over if we have to throw it an 80-percent clip, offensive tackle Zach Strief said. This game is not as complicated as we would like to make it sound. When you become one-dimensional, its tough to protect the quarterback, and when youre relying on him to make all the plays and you dont give him time, youre going to struggle.The errors came one after the other. With the Saints trailing 13-5 late in the second quarter, Brees overthrew open receiver Brandin Cooks on a deep pass in the end zone. After getting a first down inside the Tampa Bay 1 on the same drive, the Saints self-destructed just before halftime.A false start penalty on tackle Tony Hills -- one of six for the offense on a day the Saints were penalized 13 times for 104 yards -- moved the ball back to the 6. Running back Travaris Cadet dropped a pass with a clear path to the end zone. Brees tripped on guard Jahri Evans foot and was sacked, forcing the Saints to kick a field goal.In the third quarter, Cooks couldnt hang on to a third-down pass in the end zone that would have been a go-ahead touchdown. Instead, New Orleans kicked another field goal to cut the deficit to 13-11.Its not one breakdown specifically, coach Sean Payton said. Weve got to look how we as coaches can improve the efficiency, and that starts with maybe the overall amount (of information) that were giving them.The special teams gaffe and defensive problems that plagued the Saints early in the year have given way to offensive inefficiency and massive frustration. New Orleans has outgained and outscored its opponents for the year with almost nothing to show for it.We have to be real honest and look in the mirror, Strief said. We have to make changes to the problems that have plagued us.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Clearance Asics Shoes Uk . Radwanska, making her debut in the Seoul tournament, hit eight aces in a match that lasted 1 hour, 4 minutes at Olympic Park tennis stadium. "It was definitely a very good match -- I was playing really good tennis," Radwanska said.

Guard play wins in March by consistently passing tests all season.No. 17 Saint Marys and Dayton are driven by dynamic guards setting the table, which could make for a riveting Saturday afternoon (2 p.m. ET) meeting with two of the nations leading mid-major programs match up at UD Arena.Its a hostile venue few volunteer to visit because of the frenetic pace and style of play encountered, as coach Archie Miller pointed out recently.We had a lot of things fall through that prevented us from really moving faster, Miller said of the scheduling oddity that brought the reigning West Coast Conference champion to Ohio. The thing we wanted to do the best was secure a series this year starting at home with a bona-fide NCAA tournament team. We were able to get that later than we wanted.Dayton returns the favor next season with a visit to the 3,500-seat home of the Gaels.For the Flyers, who are knocking on the door in the AP poll, the game could be meaningful, but Millers rotation is down two key players from an athletic frontcourt. That trusts even more of the burden on battle-tested backcourt mates Scoochie Smith and Charles Cooke.Flyers forwards Josh Cunningham and Kendall Pollard are sidelined indefinitely and Miller has used sophomore forward Sam Miller and junior guard Darrell Davis for increased minutes to stretch his rotation.The Gaels are fighting for the type of consistent national prominence Archie Miller and the Flyers -- whose senior class stands 17 wins shy of the school record for victories by one class -- have achieved. Randy Bennett, the all-time wins leader at Saint Marys College, has driven thhe program to consistent success even as Gonzaga lords over the West Coast Conference. Cheap Asics Shoes Sale Uk. The 2016-17 program is chasing an NCAA Tournament appearance after missing the field despite 29 wins last season. The engine at both ends of the court is point guard Emmett Naar. He controls the offense and dominates the ball for a club averaging only 6.0 turnovers per game. Saint Marys relies on balanced scoring and perimeter shooting. Keeping the tempo in their favor wont be easy against Daytons in-your-shirt pressing defense.Naar believes the difference in this years team is depth. Even in scoring 110 points to get to 2-0 on Wednesday night in pounding Prairie View A&M, Naar was focused on balance.I dont think anyone scored 20, which is pretty good, Naar added. Having a deep bench like that is amazing. For the other team its more guys to worry about, more guys to scout. It just adds a lot to our team.The only previous meeting between these teams was a Dayton win in 1957. But Bennett brought his 2013 team to this venue for the 2013 tournament play-in game.All youve got to do is look them up. Theyve had great success. (Bennett) does a great job. They return just about everybody from a team a year ago that won the regular-season WCC, said Archie Miller.Up next for SMC are games against San Jose State and UAB before the Nov. 30 visit to Pac-12 neighbor Stanford.Dayton plays Nebraska at 8:30 p.m. Thanksgiving night in the first round Wooden Legacy tournament in Anaheim, Calif.

At the first ever Brooklyn Beatdown Street Fighter V tournament at ESL One, reigning Evolution 2016 champion Lee Infiltration Seon Woo was eliminated by Japans Hayashi Mago Kenryo, the best Karin player in the world. Wholesale Sneakers Shoes .After being sent to the losers bracket by the unknown Thomas Brolynho Proen?a from Brazil, Infiltration pulled out Balrog against Magos Karin, leaving fans confused.ESPN.com caught up with Infiltration to see what he has planned after ESL One. While he wasnt thrilled to be eliminated from the top 16, his intention wasnt necessarily to win.I dont care about money, Infiltration said, when asked about missing out on a large chunk of a $75,000 prize pool. I just want to test before Capcom Cup.For Infiltration, the only tournament that matters is Capcom Cup. Every other tournament is a second priority, even those with massive prizes. I have no good experience against Karin, so Mago, hes [the] No. 1 Karin player in the world, I just want to test against him, he said.While losing to one of Japans best wasnt terrible, being sent to the losers by Brolynho was.I just got nervous, Infiltration said. Hes always attacking me, right things, good jumping, timing and good mix-up, throws, strike attacks.Unfortunately for Infiltration, there was only so much game play to absorb Brolynhos play style as it was a best-of-three format in top 32.I really, really want first-to-three, Infiltration said.It gives him more matches to study and understand players. Because for Infiltration, tournaments are the best training station ever.Due to Infiltrations intense travel schedule, he likes to make the most out of tournament play. This month, he has already attended four-to-five tournaments and has been traveling constantly. On Tuesday he will fly back to South Korea, get a day of rest and fly out to the South East Asia Major in Singapore. Then its on to Dubai and possibly to the Canada Cup after that. His only practice time is at tournaments, so hes OK with experimenting characters in high-stakes, high-pressure situations.Naysayers may claim his Evolution 2016 win was a fluke. He reaffirmed that the only tournament that matters is Capcom Cup. Everything until then is practice.Asked whether he learned a lot from ESL One: so-so. Cheap Sneakers Online Uk .

Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. Uttar Pradeshs left-arm spinners, Kuldeep Yadav and Saurabh Kumar took seven wickets between them as Mumbai were bowled out for 233 on the first day in Mysore.Mumbai lost three wickets for 55 in the first session, including that of Shreyas Iyer for 35, after electing to bat. Suryakumar Yadav held the innings together; he put on consecutive fifty partnerships with captain Aditya Tare (30) and Siddesh Lad (13), followed by another with debutant Aditya Dhumal (34) for the seventh wicket.He was eventually removed for 99, one short of a second-consecutive century, trapped in front to the part-time offspin of Shivam Chaudhary with the score on 223. Saurabh and Kuldeep then cleaned up the tail to finish with three and four wickets, respectively. Medium-pacer Tushar Deshpande took the solitary UP wicket to fall, that of Tanmay Srivastava, as UP finished the day on 22 for 1.Baroda failed to cross 200 for their third innings in a row, as left-arm spinner Avinash Yadavs first five-wicket haul - on his return to first-class cricket - helped Railways bowl them out for 183 in Nagpur.Barodas top-order batsmen all got off to starts. Opener Kedar Devdhar scored 45, Dhiren Mistry scored 50 at No. 3 and Deepak Hooda got 30 at No. 4. They were decently placed at 137 for 2 when Hooda was stumped off Avinash. This triggered a collapse that eventually read 8 for 46, as Baroda folded uup for 183. Wholesale Sneakers Uk. . Avinash took five of those wickets, and legspinner Karn Sharma (3-37) took the last two. In response, Railways openers Saurabh Wakaskar (16*) and Shivakant Shukla (23*) took them to 39 for 0 at stumps.Priyank Panchals tenth first-class fifty helped Gujarat finish the first day on 224 for 4 against Madhya Pradesh in Nagothane. Panchal put on 75 for the opening wicket with Samit Gohel (34) and 42 for the third with Parthiv Patel, before getting stumped off left-arm spinner Ankit Sharma (2-60) for 62. Parthiv then stitched together 68 with Manpreet Juneja (44*) before falling for 49. Juneja and Chirag Gandhi (9*) batted out the last 11.4 overs to add 17, and take Gujarat to stumps without further damage.Bengal scored at just above two runs per over to reach 190 for 3 at stumps, against Tamil Nadu in Rajkot. Bengals 190 was anchored by a 111-run partnership for the third wicket, that began with Sudip Chatterjee (34) and Manoj Tiwary before Chatterjee had to go off retired hurt. Agniv Pan was Tiwarys other partner during the third-wicket stand, which ended with Tiwarys dismissal on 56. Pan was unbeaten on 51 at the end of the day, his third first-class fifty in four games, and Shreevats Goswami was with him on 15. ' ' '

Anthony Martial and Raheem Sterling have lots in common. Nike Air Max Plus Uk . Both are only just into their twenties, are in their first seasons at Manchester United and City respectively and both were the subject of hotly-debated transfers, albeit for very different reasons.Both have hardly spoken to the media at all, certainly not at any length, so with derby day approaching it seemed like a good idea to spend the day in Manchester and catch up with two of the brightest young talents in the Premier League. It was a slightly inauspicious start when I arrived early at Manchester Uniteds Carrington training complex in a bright blue taxi, in this week of all weeks. Sterling moved to Manchester City from Liverpool in the summer The first thing that strikes you about Martial when he walk into a room is his sheer physical size. He really is a big old unit. Smiling and polite, he makes a point of shaking hands with everybody in the room.A translator is required for the interview but he understands a lot of English already, far more than he can speak.  I make a bit of effort in my schoolboy French but end up sounding like Steve McClaren auditioning for Ello Ello!  Once the chat got underway his personality came to the fore. Charming and bright yet studious and sincere is how I would sum him up. Its clear the incredible position he has reached in his football career so far is no accident - but the result of talent, dedication and a steely-eyed determination. Charming and bright yet studious and sincere is how I would sum him up Shreeves on Martial Wise beyond his tender years, he learnt from his astonishing £5m move from Lyon to Monaco aged just 16, so has been able to take the seven-fold increase in his price tag into his stride as easily as he would a pass through on goal.He has very clear career objectives, which he is focused on 100 per cent.He also had a nice line in humour and a ready smile. His level-headedness is as obvious as it is impressive. I couldnt quite work out if he is a man in a boys body or a boy in a mans body. Maybe a bit of both. Interview over, and it was time to head 10 miles across town to Manchester City, where a very different interview lay ahead.Guarded, wary, suspicious and to date deliberately media shy, Sterling was shaping up to be the polar opposite of the young man I had just spent time with.   Shreeves is picked up in a blue taxi for the interviews Ever since his acrimonious move from Liverpool he has been viciously vilified on social media and in his eyes he has been labelled as the perfect example of everything that is wrong with football: Greedy, disloyal and uncaring.Any time he did try to engage publicly with his opinion it just rebounded on him. So he just withdrew. Not in a sulk or complaining fashion, more of a I cant win whatever I say, so why say anything? But hes now come through all of that. And some. Today was a day off but he came in because he wanted to do the interview. He wanted to re-engage with football fans. He knows there will always be haters but he can deal with that. Uniteds form has been inconsistent, but Martial still looks a top class signing He wanted to talk football and that is exactly what he did for half an hour. Brutally honest, insightful and with a wicked line in self-depreciation his interview will suprise many people.He knows there is a preconception of him which is far from flattering. He doesnt complain about that one jot but he would like people to see the real him and then make up their mind. He is certainly on no media charm offensive, hes just looking for a bit of objectivity and fairness.There are too many highlights from the interview itself to mention but him talking about his mum and calling her Jose Mourinho had me in stitches... He knows there is a preconception of him which is far from flattering. He doesnt complain about that one jot but he would like people to see the real him and then make up their mind Shreeves on Sterling So it was a highly insightful day in sunny (genuinely!) Manchester, and I for one came away with a real insight and understanding of these fortunate young mens lives.If you catch the interviews I hope you feel the same.Watch Geoff Shreeves interview with Raheem Sterling on Sky Sports News HQ on Friday, and with Anthony Martial on Saturday or see them here on skysports.com.

Five-star center Austin Wiley has enrolled early at Auburn?and is eligible to play immediately.Wiley has already started practicing with the Tigers and will play against Mercer on Sunday.I am extremely excited to announce that Austin Wiley has been deemed a qualifier by the NCAA and has been admitted and enrolled in Auburn, coach Bruce Pearl said in a release. We look forward to having Austin be a part of and play for the Auburn Tigers, just as his parents did.Wiley was ranked No. 17 in the ESPN 100 for the 2017 class, and the No. 6 center in the country. He committed to Auburn in September 2015, choosing the Tigers over the likes of Alabama, Duke, Florida, Kansas, LSU, Mississippi State and others. Both of Wileys parents played at Auburn, with his mother earning All-American honors there and playing for the U.S. womens national team and his father leading the SEC in rebounnding as a senior. Nike Air Max Plus Sale Uk. Wiley spent his first three high school seasons at Spain Park in Alabama, before enrolling at prep school in Florida this year and graduating early.It feels great, Wiley said in the release. I feel really blessed right now. My hard work and dedication has paid off. Thanks to my parents and the coaches. I feel great. I grew up around here listening to stories my mom and dad would tell me about the Auburn Family. This is a blessing, and it seems like everything out for the best. It feels like destiny.Auburn is 7-2 but ranks in the bottom third nationally in rebounding efficiency. The 6-foot-9 Wiley should be able to help immediately, and could become a go-to-guy on the offensive end once he adjusts to the college game. ' ' '

NFL Nation reporters detail the biggest storylines -- and what they mean going forward -- for every team coming out of Week 10. Clearance College Jerseys Online .AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo Bills (4-5)Buffalo returns to practice Monday after Rex Ryan gave his team its entire bye week off. At 4-5, the Bills have their back against the wall, and badly need to snap their three-game losing streak next Sunday in Cincinnati. Losing to the Bengals would drop Buffalo to 1-5 in the AFC, making it extremely difficult to win a wild-card tiebreaker at the end of the season. -- Mike RodakWeek 11: at Cincinnati, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETMiami Dolphins (5-4)The Dolphins and quarterback Ryan Tannehill are growing in confidence following their fourth straight win on Sunday against the Chargers. This is Miamis first four-game win streak since 2008, which coincidentally is the last time the team made the playoffs. The Dolphins play four of their next six games on the road, so its imperative they continue to play well away from Hard Rock Stadium. -- James WalkerWeek 11: at Los Angeles, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETNew England Patriots (7-2)The Patriots offense didnt play its usual clean and efficient game in the loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, but the bigger issue -- and something that could hold the team back from its Super Bowl aspirations -- is a defense struggling to produce turnovers and create enough consistent resistance. Not enough pass rush. Not competitive enough coverage. While credit goes to the Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson for creating stress, the Patriots D isnt holding up its end of the bargain when it comes to playing complementary football. -- Mike ReissWeek 11: at San Francisco, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETNew York Jets (3-7)The Jets have a bye week to assess their problems. But what they really need is a bye month. The No. 1 question: Will they proceed with Bryce Petty at quarterback, or go back to Ryan Fitzpatrick, if healthy? Coach Todd Bowles said he wants to evaluate Pettys performance on Sunday and Fitzpatricks sprained knee before making the decision. -- Rich CiminiWeek 11:?ByeAFC NORTHBaltimore Ravens (5-4)The good news is the Ravens get extra rest (10 days) before playing at Dallas on Sunday. The bad news is that might not be enough time for the interior of the offensive line to get fully healthy. Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda has missed three out of the past four games with a shoulder injury, left guard Alex Lewis suffered an ankle injury that forced him out of the last game and center Jeremy Zuttah is also struggling with an ankle injury. The offensive line has been a painful position all season for the Ravens, who have started nine offensive linemen through nine games. -- Jamison HensleyWeek 11: at Dallas, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCincinnati Bengals (3-4-1)The Bengals indicated they would make changes on defense after allowing more than 500 yards to the Redskins. Will they follow through, or will it be more of the same? The Bengals have a big opportunity in the AFC North with the Steelers floundering, so a win against the Giants on Monday night is vital to keep pace in the division. The biggest challenge for the Bengals this week: stopping Odell Beckham Jr. -- Katherine TerrellWeek 11: vs. Buffalo, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCleveland Browns (0-10)Browns coach Hue Jackson is confident there will be no lingering negatives for Cody Kessler after he was benched Thursday night against Baltimore. Me and Cody had a great conversation [Friday], Jackson said. Cody is in a great place. Kessler will start Sundays game against the Steelers. -- Pat McManamonWeek 11: vs. Pittsburgh, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPittsburgh Steelers (4-5)No other way to put it: The Steelers are devastated right now, and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said the team needs more discipline and accountability after costly mistakes, particularly on defense, resulted in a 35-30 loss to the Cowboys. LeVeon Bell said Pittsburgh has played one complete game all year -- one. Safety Mike Mitchell said the Steelers had their hearts ripped out. This is a team in full soul-search mode. The only two positives after a four-game losing streak: Big Ben is posting big numbers again and the Browns are on the Week 11 schedule. -- Jeremy FowlerWeek 11: at Cleveland, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC SOUTHHouston Texans (6-3)Even against the now 2-7 Jaguars, the Texans offense struggled to get into a rhythm. Quarterback Brock Osweiler threw for just 99 yards, and at one point had nine consecutive incomplete passes. Osweiler targeted Pro Bowl receiver DeAndre Hopkins 13 times, but he had just five catches for 48 yards. Both Hopkins and head coach Bill OBrien said they are not concerned about his production because the Texans won and are now 6-3, but against better teams, that game plan might not be as successful. -- Sarah BarshopWeek 11: vs. Oakland in Mexico City, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETIndianapolis Colts (4-5)The Colts return to practice Monday after coach Chuck Pagano gave his players most of last week off for the bye. Theyll also return to practice without having made up any ground on Houston in the AFC South because Jacksonville couldnt beat the Texans on Sunday. The Colts are two games behind the Texans, while also not holding the tiebreaker between the two teams. Indianapolis will play host to Tennessee, which beat Green Bay on Sunday, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week 11. -- Mike WellsWeek 11: vs. Tennessee, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETJacksonville Jaguars (2-7)It has been 23 quarters since the Jaguars forced a turnover, dating back to the first quarter of a Week 4 victory over Indianapolis. Since that turnover -- an interception by Yannick Ngakoue -- the Jacksonville offense has turned the ball over 12 times. The Jaguars are last in the NFL in turnover ratio at minus-14, and have forced a league-low five turnovers. This team isnt talented or good enough to overcome that, and its 2-7 record proves it. -- Mike DiRoccoWeek 11: at Detroit, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETTennessee Titans (5-5Can the Titans carry some of what they did against the Packers to Indianapolis? Green Bay might not be great this year, but the Titans feel they dispatched a powerhouse with their 47-25 win over the Packers. They consistently fail to get past the Colts, who also topped the Packers in their most recent game. The Titans have scored 35 points or more in three consecutive games and have to find the formula to keep pouring it on against a team they are determined to stay ahead of in the AFC South. -- Paul KuharskyWeek 11: at Indianapolis, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC WESTDenver Broncos (7-2)Saturday night Broncos coach Gary Kubiak demanded his team show plenty of fight in New Orleans. The Broncos have a bye week coming and Kubiak wanted to see his battered team give everything it had to get there -- and in a 25-23 win, a game won when the Broncos returned a blocked extra point for two points, the defending champs showed why theyre still going to be a tough out for opponents. Their defense showed it still has some teeth, the offense put enough drives together to keep the Broncos in position, and the team showed the make-a-play tenacity that marked its run last season. And now it gets a bye that will give cornerback Aqib Talib and defensive end Derek Wolfe a chance to get back in the lineup. The Broncos will return to play the Chiefs in Week 12 as healthy as theyve been all season. -- Jeff LegwoldWeek 11:?ByeKansas City Chiefs (7-2)The one constant in Kansas Citys five-game winning streak has been turnovers. The Chiefs forced at least two in each of the five, but none bigger than the two in the fourth quarter that carried them past the Panthers on Sunday. Safety Eric Berry, who returned an interception 42 yards in the fourth quarter for the Chiefs only touchdown, said he knew Kansas City would eventually take the ball away from Cam Newton and the Panthers. Cornerback Marcus Peters, who forced and recovered a fumble later to set up the game-winning field goal, said he had only one thing on his mind on the play -- and that was to take the ball away from wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin. -- Adam TeicherWeek 11: vs. Tampa Bay, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETOakland Raiders (7-2)The afterglow from last Sunday nights nationally televised coming-out party against the Broncos is dimming a bit thanks to this weekends bye, and the Raiders are again preparing for another nationally televised affair -- this time with an international flair. The first-place Raiders, who are 7-2 and not available to the media again until Wednesday, are the home team in Mexico City for Monday Night Football against the Texans. -- Paul GutierrezWeek 11: vs. Texans in Mexico City, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETSan Diego Chargers (4-6)Philip Rivers threw four interceptions in the final 13 minutes of Sundays loss, including one returned for a touchdown by Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso for the winning score. At 4-6, the Chargers are still mathematically capable of making the playoffs -- but buried in the cellar of arguably the best division in football in the AFC West, the Chargers are likely looking forward to next season once again, and focused on developing young talent at the back end of the roster. San Diego heads into the bye this week, then hits the road to face the Texans in two weeks. -- Eric D. WilliamsWeek 11: ByeNFC EASTDallas Cowboys (8-1)In the end, the Cowboys do not have a decision to make regarding their quarterback situation. Dak Prescott will be the quarterback as the Cowboys go with the hot hand, according to Jerry Jones after Sundays win over the Steelers. Jones said it would be a decision Tony Romo would make as well. Prescott threw for 319 yards and two touchdowns while directing two fourth-quarter comebacks in the final minutes, including the winning drive that ended in an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown run with nine seconds to play. -- Todd ArcherWeek 11: vs. Baltimore, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNew York Giants (5-3)The Giants need a win on Monday night against the Bengals just to keep pace with the rest of the NFC East. After the Cowboys win in Pittsburgh, the Eagles win over the Falcons and the way the Redskins handled the Vikings on Sunday, its apparent the division is going to come down to the wire. The Giants cant afford to drop games, especially at home. -- Jordan RaananWeek 11: vs. Chicago, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPhiladelphia Eagles (5-4)The Eagles rediscovered the ground game, and just in time. Ryan Mathews rushed for over 100 yards and scored twice to help the Eagles to a 24-15 win over the Falcons on Sunday. That puts them at 5-4 and in position to compete down a difficult homestretch, starting this week in Seattle. Strong on defense and special teams, the Eagles appear to be at their best when theyre playing an opportunistic, ball-control style on the offensive side. Following that formula will be key over the final seven games. -- Tim McManusWeek 11: at Seattle, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETWashington Redskins (5-3-1)RB Rob Kelley has provided the Redskins a boost -- and theres no reason to think it wont continue. Kelley has rushed for 184 yards in two starts, and its not a fluke. He runs hard, he shows excellent vision and he constantly stays ahead of the chains. The Redskins will continue to start Kelley, and the good part for them is that the more playing time he sees, the better he becomes. Sunday, he learned to trust his blockers and not always look to cut back. It resulted in positive runs. Tight end Vernon Davis said of Kelley, Hes a stud. -- John KeimWeek 11: vs. Green Bay, Sunday, 8:25 p.m. ETNFC NORTHChicago Bears (2-7)Jay Cutler regressed in Tampa. Coming off a strong effort versus Minnesota in Week 8, Cutler completed 16 of 30 pass attempts for 182 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions (55.1 quarterback rating) in Chicagos blowout loss to the Bucs. Cutler also lost a fumble, and fumbled the ball for a safety. The embattled quarterback now has committed seven turnovers in 15 quarters of play in 2016. Most expect Cutler to leave the Bears after the season, but Chicago cant afford any more performances like that. Even though the Bears are 2-7, they are still trying to build momentum for next year -- but they went backward at Raymond James Stadium. -- Jeff DickersonWeek 11: at New York Giants, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETDetroit Lions (5-4)The Lions were off this weekend, and theyre hoping that gets them as close to healthy as theyve been since the season opened. Darius Slay (hamstring) should be back for next weeks game against Jacksonville. The Lions are also monitoring the progress of tight end Brandon Pettigrew (PUP, knee) and linebackers Jon Bostic (IR, foot) and DeAndre Levy (knee). If all four are able to return in the next few weeks, the Lions could be in good shape as they attempt to make a push at winning the NFC North for the first time since 1993 -- when the North had five teams and was named the NFC Central. -- Michael RothsteinWeek 11: vs. Jacksonville, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETGreen Bay Packers (4-5)When will the losing streak end, and what happens if it doesnt? The Packers had answers for neither after Sundays 47-25 loss to the Titans that ran that streak to three, prompting receiver Jordy Nelson to say it wont change just by flipping a switch. If you play the way you need to play, if it flips, it flips, he said. Somehow, the Packers are still just one game out of first place in the NFC North, but have two more road games -- at Washington and Philadelphia -- before they play again at home. -- Rob DemovskyWeek 11: at Washington, Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ETMinnesota Vikings (5-4)The Vikings asked Sam Bradford to throw the ball 40 times on Sunday, and their leading rusher (Matt Asiata) ran for 16 yards. They returned to a number of the negative plays coach Mike Zimmer had sought to eliminate, and after the 26-20 loss to the Redskins on Sunday, guard Alex Boone said, Its like teams know what were doing now. Still, Zimmer said the Vikings will try to win in whatever manner it takes: Im sure wed like to run the ball better, but if we have to throw it every down, then we throw it every down. -- Ben GoesslingWeek 11: vs. Arizona, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNFC SOUTHAtlanta Falcons (6-4)The Falcons cant expect to be Super Bowl contenders if they continue to get dominated physically like they did in their 24-15 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. Defensively, they surrendered a season-high 208 yards rushing on 38 carries, including 109 rushing yards and two touchdowns to?Ryan Mathews?-- a handful of those runs were even up the middle. It was frustrating for us, no question about it, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. At least they have the bye week to correct those errors and prepare for one of the leagues top rushers in Arizonas David Johnson. The Cardinals travel to Atlanta in Week 12. -- Vaughn McClureWeek 11:?ByeCarolina Panthers (3-6)Cam Newton brought back the dab to give the Panthers a spark, but even that wasnt enough. Newton has himself to blame. He took consecutive sacks in the third quarter at the end of a 20-play drive that took the Panthers out of field goal position, then had a fourth-quarter interception returned 42 yards for a touchdown in Sundays 20-17 loss to Kansas City. Now, he has only four days to get ready for a New Orleans team against which last month he had a sack that cost Carolina a field goal opportunity in a three-point loss. -- David NewtonWeek 11: vs. New Orleans, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETNew Orleans Saints (4-5)The Saints were pretty dazed in the locker room after their 25-23 loss to the Broncos, courtesy of a stunning blocked extra point that was returned for two points. The buzzword was disbelief. The loss itself wont break the Saints spirits since the offense and defense both played so well to survive four turnovers and come back from a 10-0 deficit. But they have to bounce back quickly with a huge game at Carolina just four days away on Thursday night. And New Orleans biggest problem is that it no longer has any margin for error with a 4-5 record. -- Mike TriplettWeek 11: at Carolina, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETTampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5)Jameis Winston threw for 300 yards and two touchdowns in the Bucs 36-10 win over the Bears on Sunday, while the defense sacked Jay Cutler four times and forced four turnovers in the first half. They got their first home win of the season, ending the NFLs longest home losing streak, which was six games going back to last year. The Bucs are now back in second place in the NFC South, tied with the Saints, whom they still have to face twice. They arent out of this thing yet. -- Jenna LaineWeek 11: at Kansas City, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNFC WESTArizona Cardinals (4-4-1)There was good, bad and ugly in the Cardinals win over San Francisco on Sunday. But the biggest story will be how the offense responds next week against a talented Minnesota defense. Arizona returned to the passing game after the 49ers made it a priority to stop David Johnson, whom the Cardinals leaned heavily on during the first half of the season after defenses focused on taking away their vertical passing game. Sunday was a breakthrough for Arizona, to some degree, as it returned to the passing game with two 100-yard receivers in Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. -- Josh WeinfussWeek 11: at Minnesota, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETLos Angeles Rams (4-5)Rams coach Jeff Fisher didnt leave much room for Jared Goff consideration on Sunday, saying after a much-needed 9-6 victory that Case Keenum was not the reason his team did not score a touchdown despite three red zone trips. The Rams have been held to two touchdowns over the past three weeks, but the start of the Goff era remains on hold. One major positive from Sunday: Todd Gurley finally got going in the second half, carrying the ball 11 times for 54 yards. He also had a 21-yard run that was negated by a hold. -- Alden GonzalezWeek 11: vs. Miami, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETSan Francisco 49ers (1-8)Most members of the 49ers offered a quick reminder that there are no moral victories in the NFL after Sundays 23-20 loss to the Cardinals. Coach Chip Kelly even went so far as to say the league doesnt hand out participation trophies after the Niners near miss. But a moral victory in this game was as close as the Niners have come to a real one in the past eight weeks. They came up short, but they were better against the run, won the turnover battle and quarterback Colin Kaepernick offered more signs of progress. No, it wasnt a win -- but it was an effort that, should it continue over the final half of the season, will lead to more and the eventual end of their current eight-game losing streak. -- Nick WagonerWeek 11: at New England, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETSeattle Seahawks (6-2-1)The Seahawks look like theyve discovered a new offensive weapon who could have a huge impact in the second half of the season: Running back C.J. Prosise. The rookie has battled through injuries, but he got the start against the Patriots and was the Seahawks leading rusher (15 carries for 55 yards) and leading receiver (six catches for 80 yards). In the fourth quarter, he came down with a tremendous 38-yard reception down the right sideline. The Seahawks are hoping to get back Thomas Rawls in the coming weeks, but for now, it looks like Prosise is going to play a big role on offense. -- Sheil KapadiaWeek 11: vs. Philadelphia, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET Cheap NCAA Jerseys For Sale .

When discussing contrarian betting in the NFL, there are several methods that can be used to extract value each week. Wholesale Authentic Jerseys . Using our Bet Labs software, I have proven that betting against the public is one of the most profitable contrarian strategies, but there are other ways of capitalizing on market overreactions and inefficiencies.Its important to realize that most casual bettors place inordinate weight on recent events. These panic-stricken individuals will eagerly take teams after a blowout win and fade teams after a blowout loss. They speak in hyperbole, but with zero consistency. They buy into media-created hype and overwhelmingly pound favorites. By taking an opposing viewpoint and backing the underdog, were able to get free points based on uninformed opinions.

Former North Queensland fullback Tim Brasher believes Cronulla have made a huge error by saying they will target current Cowboys No.1 Lachlan Coote.The Sharks earlier vowed to test Coote in Friday nights NRL preliminary final at Allianz Stadium after the North Queensland custodians error-riddled display last Friday night against Brisbane.Brasher admitted Coote almost cost North Queensland their title defence in their elimination semi-final.Despite his errors the Cowboys rallied to oust the Broncos 26-20 in extra time and Brasher doesnt expect Coote will repeat the display in the grand final qualifier.Its like waving a red rag to a bull, Brasher told AAP.The Sharkies are really stoking the fire.Saying they will target him, I think you will find he will bounce back and prove he is the class player we all know he is.Coote made four handling errors against Brisbane, including a horror spilt kick that allowed Jordan Kahu to score and give the Broncos a 14-6 halftime lead.Obviously last week he had a game he wanted to forget - it was very unlike him, said Balmain great Brasher, who finished his career at North Queensland from 2000-02.But I dont care who it is, everyone makees mistakes. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China. Billy Slater is probably the best fullback in the modern era and he made one of the biggest mistakes, that lost us a World Cup final (in 2008).We all make them, its how you bounce back and I think Cootes class will shine through.Brasher was already convinced Coote should be NSW State of Origin fullback next year ahead of incumbent James Tedesco, and the man Tedesco replaced this series, Penriths Matt Moylan.Before Origin this year I was backing Lachlan over Matt Moylan, he said.Hes got a great kicking game that takes the pressure off (Johnathan) Thurston and his positional play is the best of all the fullbacks.He reads the game better than most.Coote is a fullback who turns up at the right spot at the right time.Brasher believes Cronulla should be concerned that North Queensland still found a way to win against Brisbane despite Cootes shocker.His crucial mistakes there could have cost them the game, but they got over it, he said.When someone is not having a great day they all rallied around him and still got the win.

A former NFL player who suffered what the league deemed a career-ending concussion has sued Lloyds of London for denying a $1 million insurance policy for professional athletes. Stitched Nike Jerseys .The lawsuit filed this week in North Carolina could become a test case for insurers dealing with the emerging fallout from sports concussions and head trauma claims.The NFL declared former Carolina Panthers defensive back Haruki Nakamura fully and permanently disabled after the concussion he received in an August 2013 preseason game, and it awarded him monthly benefits.Lloyds medical expert nonetheless ruled, nearly 18 months after the claim was filed, that he could return to play. However, the doctor cautioned Nakamura to consider the probable long-term effects of repetitive concussions before making the decision, according to the suit, filed Monday in Mecklenburg County.Lizzie Lowe, a U.S. spokeswoman for Lloyds, said the insurance consortium doesnt comment on pending litigation.Nakamura, 30, said he suffers from headaches, vision problems, fatigue, depression and suicidal thoughts.He hit the side of his head making a tackle in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he was diagnosed with a concussion at a hospital. Citing a concussion, the Panthers released him five days later, the lawsuit said. He was later diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome by a sports concussion expert at the University of Pittsburgh.Nakamura had paid $17,000 a year for the Lloyds policy in 2012 and 2013, according to his lawyers, John W. Schryber and Julie L. Hammerman, who specialize in insurance policies for athletes. The policies are recommended for athletes who might not have a guaranteed salary and who can be cut after an injury. The lawyers said they have never had an insurer reject a policy after a doctor or the NFL judged a client to have a career-ending injury. But this is the first concussion claim they have filed under coverage for bodily injuries.And now theyre denying coverage altogether, Schryber said Wednesday. The point of going out and buying private insurance is to have a hedge against all of these other things that are outside of your control.Nakamura could potentially seek an award under the NFLs planned $1 billion court settlement of concussion claims, though its unclear how he might fare. The settlement, which could roll out within the next year, is designed to cover more than 20,000 NFL retirees for the next 65 years. The league estimates that 6,000 former players, or nearly 3 in 10, could develop Alzheimers disease or moderate dementia that some link to concussions.Nakamura, an Ohio native, played for the Baltimore Ravens from 2008 to 2011 before joining the Panthers. He lives with his wife and two children in Mooresville, North Carolina. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys . Marincin has played in two NHL games so far this season with two penalty minutes.

And the D has six potential all-conference candidates in its front seven, led by Steven Taylor, who had 10 sacks and 92 tackles in 15. The Cougars face three of the AACs top teams on the road (Cincinnati, Memphis and Navy), and the only game I have them as underdogs in is Oklahoma (+10), a team that could well end up as Big 12 champ.

SAN FRANCISCO -- From the White House to San Francisco police union headquarters, Colin Kaepernicks name came up Monday as his decision to sit down during the national anthem reached far beyond football. Discount NBA Jerseys .And many arent thrilled with the 49ers quarterbacks strong words about why he is doing it : To instigate change and challenge authority when it comes to race relations and what he considers police brutality.Even his former coach, outspoken Michigan leader Jim Harbaugh, chimed in from afar in disagreement with Kaepernicks tactics -- clarifying some earlier remarks that questioned the quarterbacks motivation.I apologize for misspeaking my true sentiments. To clarify, I support Colins motivation. Its his method of action that I take exception to, Harbaugh posted on Twitter.A day after Kaepernick called Donald Trump openly racist, the Republican presidential candidate fired back on Seattles KIRO radio.I have followed it, and I think its personally not a good thing. I think its a terrible thing, Trump said. And you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try, it wont happen.Kaepernick, who has sat through the anthem for all three 49ers preseason games so far, is prepared to keep fighting for what he believes in -- even alone.The fact that it has blown up like this, I think its a good thing. It brings awareness, Kaepernick said Sunday. Now, I think people are really talking about it. Having conversations about how to make change. Whats really going on in this country. And we can move forward. ...There is police brutality. People of color have been targeted by police.Martin Halloran, the San Francisco Police Officers Association president, sent a letter Monday to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and 49ers CEO Jed York denouncing Kaepernicks ill-advised statements and a naivete and total lack of sensitivity toward police, along with an incredible lack of knowledge about officer-involved shootings.There is some depth and some truth to what he was doing, Seahawks star Richard Sherman said of Kaepernick. I think he could have picked a better platform and a better way to do it, but every day they say athletes are so robotic and do everything by the book and then when somebody takes a stand like that, he gets his head chopped off.The police union invited Kaepernick or anyone else from the league to visit the San Francisco police academy to build communication and understanding about the profession.I only wish Mr. Kaepernick could see the emotional and psychological challenges that our officers face following a fatal encounter, Halloran wrote.Some are so affected they never return to the streets. In short, Mr. Kaepernick has embarrassed himself, the 49er organization, and the NFL based on a false narrative and misinformation that lacks any factual basis.At the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York, top-ranked American John Isner spoke of Kaepernick after winning his first-round match Monday.I thought that was pathetic from him. The cause he was going for, fine by me -- but dont do it in that fashion, Isner said. For him doing it in that way really irked me. Im a big Blaine Gabbert fan now.Gabbert and Kaepernick are competing for San Franciscos starting QB job.White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he was confident President Barack Obama is aware of Kaepernicks actions, but hadnt spoken directly with the president about it.In general, what I can say is that I certainly dont share the views that Mr. Kaepernick expressed after the game in explaining his reasoning for his actions, but we surely would all acknowledge and even defend his right to express those views in the settings that he chooses, Earnest said. Thats what hes done, and even as objectionable as we find his perspective, he certainly is entitled to express it.Kaepernicks stance, which he further explained Sunday after he was shown sitting on the bench for The Star-Spangled Banner before Fridays preseason loss to the Packers, was still the chatter around the NFL, too.Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who played at Army and served in Afghanistan before forging a job in the NFL, said he agrees that the U.S. is not perfect but insists it is the best country and he is unsure how he would react if one of his teammates sat down for the anthem.I just know that I am very thankful to be an American. I will stand very proudly, and I will sing every single line in the national anthem every single time I hear it, Villanueva said. I will stop whatever I am doing, because I recognize that I have to be very thankful to be in this country.As some of Kaepernicks teammates noted Sunday, many are offended by his bold move -- one he plans to continue indefinitely.The American flag and our national anthem stand for something, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States salutes all who stand with us, said Veterans of Foreign Wars National Commander Brian Duffy.---AP Tennis Writer Howard Fendrich, AP Sports Writers Will Graves and Larry Lage, and Associated Press Writers Kevin Freking and Paul Elias and AP freelance writer Curtis Crabtree contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys .
