New England Patriots rush for 250 yards, dedicate win to grieving RB James White

The New England Patriots rushed for 250 yards in their 36-20 victory Sunday over the Las Vegas Raiders, an impressive performance that players said was dedicated to running back James White.

White, a third-year captain in his seventh season with the Patriots, remains away from the club after his father, Tyrone, died in a car crash Sept. 20. White’s mother, Lisa, was injured in the crash.

“We just try to go out there and play for him,” said running back Rex Burkhead, who scored three touchdowns for the first time in his eight-year NFL career.cheap nfl nike jersey

“A lot of us, we think about him every single day and his situation. He’s just an unbelievable person, player and leader of this team. So him being away — and of course, the situation him and his family are going through — it’s sad,” Burkhead said. “He’s a brother to me. I really feel his pain in this whole situation. It’s tough.”

Before the game, the Patriots held a moment of silence before the singing of the national anthem.

“We certainly played for James — and not just James but his entire family,” said special-teams captain Matthew Slater, the longest tenured member of the team. “This has been a difficult week for all of us. Obviously, James has been through so much, and most of us can’t even begin to imagine what that must have been like for him and what it continues to be like. We want him to know that we love him and that he has our support.”

Quarterback Cam Newton said players feel for White.8

“We just want to reward him and put him in good spirit,” he said. “We’re excited like heck to hopefully get him back here soon. We’ve been praying for him, and we need ‘Sweet Feet’ back.”

Coach Bill Belichick dedicated part of the opening remarks of his postgame news conference to White, saying that everyone is thinking about him.

Running back Sony Michel, who finished with 117 yards on nine carries, said he texted White throughout the week.

“The rest of the running backs did the same thing, and we all kind of came together and played hard. That’s what James White does,” he said.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

Meanwhile, veteran receiver Julian Edelman said players wanted to make White proud.

“It did give us motivation to go out there and play for him because you know for a fact the kind of guy James White is. If something like that happened to one of us, he would do the same thing,” Edelman said. “It’s been a real tough situation, and my heart, prayers, love and everything goes toward him and his family.”

Tarik Cohen of Chicago Bears feared to have suffered torn ACL

The Chicago Bears fear running back Tarik Cohen suffered a torn right ACL in Sunday’s 30-26 win over the Atlanta Falcons, coach Matt Nagy said after the game.

“Unfortunately, it looks like Tarik Cohen, after we get confirmation, looks like he did end up tearing his ACL,” Nagy said on a video call. “So, that will be a big blow to us there with that, which is unfortunate.”cheap nike nfl jersey

Cohen suffered the injury on a punt return when Atlanta’s Brian Hill got pushed into the back of his right leg, caused his knee to bend awkwardly. Cohen went to the ground and immediately clutched his right knee. The 5-foot-6 all-purpose threat was unable to put any pressure on his right leg when trainers help him off the field.

Cohen had two carries for 21 yards and three receptions for 20 yards before the injury.7

“I love the guy, he’s an important person on this team,” Bears defensive lineman Akiem Hicks said. “Someone I have a lot of respect for, somebody that is dedicated to this team and that wants to be the best at what he does. He’s all you can ask for in a teammate. He’s the energy when we need it, he’s the focus when you want it, he’s just our guy.cheap nfl nike jersey

The Bears signed Cohen to a three-year extension earlier this month. Cohen’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the deal is worth $17.25 million in new money ($5.75 million per year) with the opportunity to be worth $18.25 million at $6.093 million per year. Cohen’s extension includes $9.533 million fully guaranteed and a $12.033 million max guarantee.

Cohen, 25, is an all-purpose threat on offense who earned a trip to the 2018 Pro Bowl as a return man on special teams. A fourth-round pick out of North Carolina A&T, he rushed for 1,027 yards and five touchdowns and caught 203 passes for 1,534 yards and nine scores over his first three seasons in Chicago (2017 to ’19).

Cohen became the shortest player (5-foot-6) since 1934 to throw an NFL touchdown pass when he fired a 21-yard scoring strike as a rookie in 2017. He has two career touchdown passes overall. Also in 2017, Cohen became the first NFL rookie to score a rushing, a receiving, a passing and a punt-return touchdown since Hall of Famer Gale Sayers in 1965.

Southampton’s Ings returns to sink Burnley

Southampton’s in-form striker Danny Ings grabbed an early goal to secure a 1-0 win at his former club Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Ings continued his prolific scoring for the Saints, having now netted 25 of their 54 goals since the start of last season, as he struck in the fifth minute at Turf Moor.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Kyle Walker-Peters played a superb pass through to Che Adams and, with Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope rushing off his line, the forward squared the ball to Ings who turned it home.8

Injury-ravaged Burnley had an appeal for a penalty rejected when Chris Wood went down after Polish defender Jan Bednarek laid his hands on his back and there was more controversy involving the New Zealand international after the break.

Wood got behind the Saints defence to latch on to a long ball but the assistant flagged for offside with the Burnley striker continuing his run and putting the ball in the net.nfl nike jerseys for cheap

VAR rules instruct officials not to flag or whistle until a move is complete, leading to confusion and frustration on the bench with the Burnley staff believing Wood was onside.

England international Ings had the ball in the net again in the final minutes but that too was disallowed for offside.

Leeds United seal win at Sheffield United with late Bamford goal

Patrick Bamford’s 88th-minute header gave Leeds United a 1-0 win at Sheffield United in their Yorkshire Premier League derby on Sunday.

Jack Harrison whipped in a superb cross from the left wing and Bamford rose well to score for the third straight game and leave Chris Wilder’s side without a point or a goal this season.

Leeds’ keeper Illan Meslier produced a superb save on 29 minutes from a close-range effort by John Lundstram after good work from Ben Osborn down the left.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Marcelo Bielsa’s side threatened before the break, though, and Sheffield United keeper Aaron Ramsdale did well to keep out a lofted shot from Stuart Dallas.7

Meslier was alert again after the break when George Baldock turned sharply on the edge of the box to lose his marker and unleash a powerful drive but the 20-year-old keeper parried well.

Helder Costa then threatened with a stinging volley that was kept out by the diving Ramsdale.

Bamford’s fine header, however, ensured that Leeds move to six points from their first three games on their return to the top flight after a 16-year absence.

“It was a just result,” Bielsa said. “The first half was even. We could’ve scored but also conceded. The second half was a lot better for us. I think we created a small but just difference to create the victory.”nfl cheap jerseys nike

Sheffield United had lost to Aston Villa and Wolves before the Leeds game and manager Wilder said it had been a tough month.

“We’ll be glad to see the back of September. Fresh start in October at Arsenal away. I can’t fault a lot of things the players did in the game. I thought it was really tight, you have got to take the chances in the Premier League.

“We have to be more clinical, the best chances fell to us, we know how Leeds play, high energy and high tempo. We ultimately got punished by a fantastic ball and a great header.”

J.P. Crawford delivers all day as Mariners sweep DH with A’s

The Oakland Athletics sure would like to be swinging better in late September with the playoffs fast approaching.

Robbie Grossman provided a pair of home runs in his first career multi-homer game for the AL West champions yet again the A’s stumbled to a 12-3 loss in Game 2 as the Seattle Mariners swept their doubleheader Saturday.

“It’s not a great feeling. It’s a major league baseball game, you’re trying to win,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “The first one was tough, obviously. We felt like we had a pretty good chance to win that game and we didn’t.nike cheap nfl jerseys

“Had some opportunities. Second game we knew the pitching was going to be a little bit limited and there were some guys I didn’t want to use in this game so it ended up getting a little bit out of hand. You’ve just got to put the day away and come play tomorrow and know that’s the last game of the regular season and the postseason starts.”

J.P. Crawford delivered all day for Seattle. He hit a go-ahead single in the eighth inning of a 5-1 extra-innings Game 1 win after his tying single in the sixth, then added an RBI double in an eight-run third during the nightcap.

Kyle Seager homered in both games, and Tim Lopes connected in the second.8

Seager hit a two-run drive in the eighth inning of the opener and a solo shot in the second game for the Mariners, who bounced back from a tough loss a night earlier with a pair of impressive wins.

Grossman connected on solo drives in the first and fifth innings against right-hander Justin Dunn (3-1).

Tommy La Stella tripled to begin the sixth in Game 1, but the A’s couldn’t capitalize against former Oakland right-hander Kendall Graveman (1-3).nfl nike jerseys for cheap

“That was great to be able to go out in a high-leverage situation, especially this whole month, and to be able to do that with some added Adrenalin,” Graveman said.

Khris Davis hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, but that was it for the A’s, whose hitting is hardly where they would hope.

“I have no doubt in this team. We’re the best team in the division, I would take us over anyone,” Grossman said. “It’s been a grind.”

The typically slugging A’s (35-23), who will host a best-of-three wild-card series starting Tuesday at the Coliseum, are still struggling as an offense but doing just enough. They won 3-1 in 10 innings Friday night on Mark Canha’s two-run homer.

Ja Morant, Zion Williamson headline NBA’s All-Rookie First Team

Memphis Grizzlies phenom Ja Morant, the 2020 NBA Rookie of the Year, was a unanimous selection to the NBA’s All-Rookie First Team, as the league announced both of its All-Rookie teams Tuesday night ahead of the start of the Eastern Conference finals.nike jerseys nfl cheap

Morant, who finished with averages of 17.8 points per game and 7.3 assists per game in leading the Grizzlies to the brink of the playoffs after being the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft out of Murray State, was the only unanimous selection for the two All-Rookie teams. The teams are comprised of 10 players voted on by a global panel of 100 sports writers and broadcasters, and are selected regardless of position.8

Joining Morant on the first team are Morant’s teammate, forward Brandon Clarke, Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn, New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson and Golden State Warriors forward Eric Paschall.

The All-Rookie Second Team includes Heat guard Tyler Herro; Toronto Raptors guard Terence Davis; Chicago Bulls guard Coby White; Charlotte Hornets forward P.J. Washington; and Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura.cheap nike jerseys nfl

Because of the changes to the league’s calendar because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is not a season-ending awards show this year. Instead, the league has reverted back to its old format of handing out awards periodically throughout the playoffs.

Only two honors are left to be handed out: the All-NBA teams and the league’s Most Valuable Player Award.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Anthony Davis, Rudy Gobert headline All-Defensive first team

The top three vote-getters for the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award — Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis and Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert — headline this year’s All-Defensive teams, which were announced by the league Tuesday.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Antetokounmpo, who won this year’s Defensive Player of the Year award, received 97 of 100 possible first-team votes to finish with 195 points. He was followed by Davis (87 first-team votes and 187 points), Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons (88 first-team votes, 185 points), Gobert (85 first-team votes, 180 points) and Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart (57 first-place votes, 152 points).

It is the second straight season that both Antetokounmpo and Smart have been named to the first team, and Gobert — who won the previous two DPOY awards — has been named the first-team center four straight times. Davis now has two first- and two second-team selections. This is the first time Simmons has made either all-league defensive team.7

The second team is made up of LA Clippers teammates Kawhi Leonard and Patrick Beverley, Bucks teammates Brook Lopez and Eric Bledsoe, and Miami Heat big man Bam Adebayo.

The Bucks became the first team to have three players named to the two All-Defensive teams since the 2012-13 Memphis Grizzlies (Tony Allen, Mike Conley and Marc Gasol).

Because of changes to the league’s calendar because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no end-of-season awards show, as there was in recent seasons. Instead, the league has reverted to its old practice of handing out hardware during the playoffs.

The only individual award left is for the Most Valuable Player, which Antetokounmpo, who missed Game 5 of Milwaukee’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against Miami on Tuesday because of a sprained right ankle, is expected to win for the second season in a row.nike jerseys nfl cheap

The other honors still to be announced are the two All-Rookie teams and the three All-NBA teams.

QB Cam Newton nearly leads New England Patriots to fourth-quarter comeback win

Quarterback Cam Newton nearly led the visiting New England Patriots on a vintage fourth-quarter comeback Sunday night against the Seattle Seahawks, but he was stopped on a designed run at the 1-yard line on the final play of a 35-30 loss at CenturyLink Field.

Newton was remarkable, finishing 30-of-44 for 397 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He added 47 yards rushing on 11 carries and two touchdowns.cheap nfl jerseys china nike

His performance kept the Patriots in the game until the final play, in which he took a direct snap and attempted to power over the left side of the line of scrimmage but was stopped for a loss of 1 yard by defensive end L.J. Collier.

“That was favored in the game plan. We ran it a couple times and figured it was something we probably went to the well too many times. But at the end of the day, we felt confident about it and you just have to execute,” Newton said.

“I could have bounced it [outside], looking at the clip. I just have to be better at the end. We put ourselves in a position to win. When you do that, you just have to finish.”8

In his career, Newton had been 16-of-20 scoring on rushing from the 1-yard line, according to research by ESPN Stats & Information. That included his two rushing touchdowns earlier in Sunday’s game.

“We had one play to score and we tried to go with what we thought was our best play,” coach Bill Belichick said. “Seattle made a good play.”nike nfl jerseys cheap china

The Patriots didn’t disguise their intentions that Newton would likely run on the final play, as they didn’t have any receivers or running backs on the field. Instead, they added two extra offensive linemen, along with two tight ends and a fullback.

Asked if he sensed the Seahawks knew what was coming, Newton said, “No, I just didn’t make everybody right. That’s the only thing I regret. That type of situation, it’s humbling to be able to have the respect of a team to have the ball in my hands. I just have to deliver.

“I saw a clip of it. I could have made it right by just bouncing it. I was just trying to be patient. Just thinking too much, man. Or even just diving over the top. There are so many different things that flashed over me. Playing a fast defense like that, as soon as you guess, you’re wrong. So I definitely learned from this.

“The play was there. The play had been there all game. Moving forward, we just have to scheme up things, and me being put in that situation again, hopefully we can have a better outcome.”

Diego Valeri stars as Portland Timbers hit six past listless San Jose Earthquakes

Diego Valeri scored twice for the first time since the 2017 season and added an assist to lead the visiting Portland Timbers to a 6-1 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.

Jeremy Ebobisse, Yimmi Chara, Julio Cascante and Jaroslaw Niezgoda also scored for the Timbers, who drew the Quakes 1-1 in the clubs’ previous meeting, also in San Jose, on Wednesday.

The win marked Portland’s highest scoring performance of the season as well as their second time in the last six matches of scoring four or more goals. They moved up three spots into fifth place in the Western Conference with the win.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Carlos Fierro scored the lone goal for San Jose, which suffered its second-worst defeat of the season after a 7-1 loss to the Seattle Sounders on Sept. 10. The Earthquakes had managed two draws between those defeats but are now winless in their last seven matches and remain last in the West.8

The Timbers took the lead in the 25th minute after a somewhat unfortunate bounce for the Quakes, when a bouncing ball struck San Jose defender Shea Salinas in the arm for a clear handball.

Referee Rosendo Mendoza pointed to the penalty spot, and Valeri stepped up and drove a low finish into the left corner past Daniel Vega’s dive.

Portland doubled its lead only two minutes later. A San Jose defender cleared away the initial cross from a free kick from the right. The ball cycled to Jorge Villafana on the opposite flank, who drove in a second cross toward the back post, where Ebobisse met it with a powerful header past Vega.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Fierro pulled the Quakes back within one just before halftime. Marcos Lopez dragged a cross from the left back toward the top of the penalty area, and Fierro hit a first-time, left-footed shot past Aljaz Ivacic and inside the right post.

But Valeri’s second goal 12 minutes after halftime, on a one-time strike of Yimmi Chara’s cross, began a cascade of four unanswered goals for the visitors.

Chara’s goal made it 4-1 in the 70th minute, Cascante headed in Valeri’s free kick in the 85th and Niezgoda completed an attack set up by Diego Chara in the 87th.

Colorado Rapids defeat 10-man LA Galaxy

Cole Bassett and Jonathan Lewis scored goals for the Colorado Rapids in their 2-0 victory over the LA Galaxy Saturday night in Carson, Calif.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Lewis’ fourth goal of the season sealed the win for the Rapids, who have lost just once in the past six games. Colorado vaulted into sixth place and a postseason position in the MLS Western Conference.

The Galaxy played with 10 men from the 75th minute on after Julian Araujo was shown a red card. Araujo drew a yellow card for a foul in the 72nd minute, then was given red for his reaction to the call.

Bassett’s 40th-minute goal gave Colorado a 1-0 lead. Bassett scored off a long cross from fullback Sam Vines, who had no one marking him on the left wing as he dribbled and looked for someone in the box.7

The ball found Bassett’s feet, and his shot was too forceful for David Bingham to stop for the Galaxy.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal

Joe Corona got an open look from outside the top of the box in the 42nd minute for the Galaxy, but William Yarbrough stopped it for the Rapids. Yarbrough finished with four saves.

The Galaxy chose not to start a pair of stars, forward Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and midfielder Jonathan dos Santos, but both came on as substitutes in the 54th minute. Just before that, Yarbrough stopped Ethan Zubak’s redirected cross from in front of the net to keep the Galaxy scoreless.

Bingham came up big for the Galaxy in the 65th minute. After a shot from Lewis hit the goal bar, the rebound remained with the Rapids. Andre Shinyashiki had a chance from close range, only to have Bingham turn him away.
