Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi and France midfielder Blaise Matuidi scored, with star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic setting up both despite having a poor game by his high standards.

Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. DALLAS -- James Harden walked the ball up the court in the final seconds of the third quarter, then decided he didnt want to set up the offense.The Houston star simply pulled up and hit a long 3-pointer for the first double-digit lead during a late-quarter run that put the Rockets in control for good.Trevor Ariza scored 27 points, Harden had 26 and Houston beat Dallas 106-98 with Dirk Nowitzki missing from the Mavericks home opener Friday night.Harden went scoreless while playing the entire first quarter, missing all five shots, before getting 10 points in the second and 12 in the third, including the punctuating 3 that followed two others on a 10-2 run to finish the quarter.I was in a groove and it was time to close out the quarter, Harden said. Think thats one of the things that were preaching is we got to end quarters the right way.Harrison Barnes, playing his first home game for the Mavericks after signing a max contract in the summer, had a career-high 31 points.Nowitzki didnt play for just the second time in 19 home openers with Dallas. The 38-year-old had a stomach ailment bad enough that coach Rick Carlisle wasnt sure he would make the trip to Houston for the Rockets home opener Sunday.Dirks not going to be around here forever. And were going to be sitting him sometimes this year, Carlisle said. The other guys have got to step up and step forward. And Im one of them. Weve all got to really raise the level of our game when a guy like thats not on the floor.Two nights after recording a career-high 17 assists in an opening loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, Harden had eight assists and seven rebounds.Ariza was 5 of 7 from 3-point range, including one early in the fourth quarter to push Houstons lead back to nine points. He was fouled on 3-pointers twice and made all six free throws.TIP-INSRockets: Harden became the second player in NBA history with at least 30 points and 15 assists in an opener when he had 34 points and 17 assists in the 120-114 loss to the Lakers. Tim Hardaway had 32 and 18 for Golden State at Denver in 1990. ... Eric Gordon was the other double-figure scorer for Houston with 18 points. ... Cllint Capela had nine rebounds. Jonathan Isaac White Jersey. Mavericks: Dallas has the two highest totals for 3-point attempts in a game in league history after shooting 48 in the 130-121 overtime loss to Indiana in the opener. The Mavericks made 18 (38 percent). Dallas shot a record 49 on March 5, 1996, against New Jersey, also making 18 (37 percent). ... Andrew Bogut, a starter alongside Barnes at Golden State before both joined Dallas after the Warriors landed Kevin Durant in free agency, had a game-high 12 rebounds. ... Deron Williams had 14 points, but just one in the second half.FILLING IN FOR DIRKThe only other home opener Nowitzki missed was in 2012 when he sat the first 27 games recovering from knee surgery. Sliding over to power forward, Barnes was strong inside and out, going 13 of 23 from the field with five rebounds. I think he has a chance to be a very special player. Ive felt that all along, Carlisle said.DEFENSIVE TURNAROUNDAfter giving up 51 percent shooting in the loss to the Lakers, the Rockets allowed Dallas to shoot 52 percent in the first quarter while Barnes scored 12 points . But the Mavericks were held to 15 of 40 (38 percent) in the second and third quarters, when Houston outscored them 53-43. We cant just rely on offense or James bailing us out like he did a lot last year, Ariza said. We have to do it collectively on the defensive end.SHOOTING STRUGGLESDallas Wesley Matthews scored 13 points on a second straight bad shooting night. Hes 7 of 30 from the field through two games, including 3 of 18 from 3-point range.LONG-RANGE SUCCESSThe Rockets were 15 of 32 from 3-point range (47 percent). Ariza, Harden (4 of 9) and Gordon (3 of 6) combined to make 12 of 20 from beyond the arc. I think our legs were a little bit better, and well get more in shape as we play more games, first-year coach Mike DAntoni said.UP NEXTThe Rockets home opener Sunday against the Mavericks is their only home game in the first eight this season.

On a coin toss, Wade will step in for his first of two matches on Thursday and will fancy his chances of using his vast experience to vanquish Smith.Raymond van Barneveld v Peter Wright Peter Wright powered to an opening victory in Leeds In stark contrast, Van Barneveld and Wright should be brimming with confidence after making a winning start to the new campaign.Barney averaged 103.60 in his comfortable 7-2 win over old rival Taylor, while Wright completed a 121 checkout on the bullseye during his own 7-2 savaging of Smith. 2014 Premier League champion Raymond van Barneveld dominated his match against Phil Taylor Both men lacked consistency last year and this match could be an early indication of whether Van Barneveld or Wright could challenge for the title.Adrian Lewis v Dave Chisnall  Adrian Lewis sent out a warning to his rivals with a dominant display on night one This match features two other players who kicked-off the Premier League schedule in style as Chisnall and Lewis recorded impressive results at the First Direct Arena.Chisnall, who hit the most 180s in last years Premier League, fired in three maximums in his thrashing of Thornton and Lewis cruised to a 7-2 win over the struggling Smith.

So, when they finally got to add another digit to their win total, the Orioles didnt really care if the outcome was influenced by their opponents mistakes. Brian Roberts and Manny Machado both hit two-run doubles during a seven-run third inning fueled by Colorado miscues, and Baltimore defeated the Rockies 8-4 Saturday night to end a four-game skid. Adam Jones had two hits in Baltimores highest-scoring inning of the season, which featured an error by shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, two walks, a passed ball and a wild pitch. Six of the seven runs were unearned, but when it was done the Orioles had an 8-1 lead. "It was huge," winning pitcher Bud Norris said. "It was a tough stretch there in Arizona. But just to be back in the win column was huge. To have a seven-run third inning is definitely a help to any starting pitcher going out there. I just wanted to keep putting up zeroes and the bullpen really came in and picked me up, too." Norris (9-10) gave up four runs and nine hits over 5 2-3 innings to improve to 3-1 since coming to the Orioles in a trade with Houston on July 31. He was followed by a relief corps that allowed only three hits the rest of way. "This is the big leagues. The third inning with a seven-run lead is never comfortable," said Tommy Hunter, who worked the ninth. "Guys came in and threw the ball well in certain situations and got us to the end of the ballgame with a four-run lead." Most of the damage in the third inning came against Colorado rookie Chad Bettis (0-2), who allowed seven hits, four walks and eight runs in 2 2-3 innings. "It was really embarrassing," Bettis said. "I need to be better. I wasnt making the right pitches." Baltimores third inning began with a double by Chris Davis and an infield hit by Jones. Nick Markakis followed with an RBI single, and one out later Colorado brought the infield in with runners on second and third. Steve Pearce hit a grounder that got past Tulowitzki, allowing Jones to score. "I think Tul probably looked up to see if the runner was taking off from third," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "But, hes been as good as you can possibly be at shoortstop. Marcel Schmelzer Jersey. Hes not going to make every play for six months." Following the second out, Roberts doubled in two runs, Nate McLouth walked and Machado hit his major league-leading 43rd double. Adam Ottavino replaced Bettis and walked Davis before Jones delivered an RBI single for a seven-run cushion. "Ive never been a part of a bad seven-run inning, when youre the one scoring it," Roberts said. "Obviously, we needed a little something to kind of jump start us and that was big, to use the extra out they gave us to put some runs on the board. Everyone kind of breathed a little sigh of relief and said, All right. Now were ready to go." Dexter Fowler hit RBI singles in the fourth and sixth innings for the Rockies, who lost for only the second time in eight games. Colorado stranded 11 and went 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position. Jones had three hits and Davis picked up his 113th RBI to help the Orioles secure their first victory since beating San Francisco last Sunday. "I think people panic a little more outside the clubhouse than we do inside the clubhouse," Roberts said. "We all still feel like we are in pretty good shape." Colorado got two hits and two walks in the first inning but scored only once, when Tulowitzki bounced into a double play. In the bottom half, McLouth drew a leadoff walk, advanced on a single by Machado and came home on a fly ball by Davis. Although the Orioles left the bases loaded in the second, they made up for it in the third. NOTES: Orioles SS J.J. Hardy was late scratch with back spasms. It was the second game hes missed this season. ... The Orioles recalled RHP Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk to fill out an overworked bullpen. He allowed one hit in 1 1-3 innings. ...

The Pro Football Hall of Fame will issue refunds to ticket buyers who went home from the NFLs annual preseason kickoff without having watched any football. DeShone Kizer Jersey .The competitors for roster spots with the Colts and the Packers wont get the game back, though.I can tell you this: Every one of those young players are upset, Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said.After Brett Favre stole the show with a humorous, insightful and moving speech during the induction ceremony for his class on Saturday, the talk of league turned the next night to the field. Thats because part of it was congealed, rendering the Indianapolis-Green Bay game unplayable.The traditional exhibition in Canton, Ohio, an extra preseason contest for each team and source of local pride, was canceled when NFL and team officials deemed the turf unsafe due to hardened paint and loosened rubber pellets.Neither the Colts nor the Packers were available for comment on Monday, but both coaches expressed disappointment on Sunday night about the lost opportunity to evaluate, even though four more games remain before the regular season.These exhibitions often become yawners for fans, with most starters standing on the sideline, but theyre serious business for the undrafted and unproven guys trying to make an impression.Nothing is guaranteed in this league. Those types of games, you dont want to miss reps, especially in game-type situations, New York Giants safety Cooper Taylor, himself a roster-bubble player.You dont go live in practice any more. You just cant do that with the way the NFL has been set up.He was referring to the attempt to protect the health of the players in a dangerous sport, which is exactly why the game was called off.As frustrated as the second, third and fourth-stringers must have been by the cancellation, nobody would have wanted to put bones, joints or muscles at greater risk.If something happens to somebody, then its like `Oh, they shouldnt have played the game, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones said.Something did happen on that same field last year, to Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham. He tore the ACL in his left knee in the Hall of Fame game against the Minnesota Vikings, and his career could be over.The NFL Players Association has made field conditions a priority of its members.There is a standard, said Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich, the teams union rep. People havent held everything to that standard. So I think that is what the focus is, and the NFL is saying we are committed to this, too, the safety of our players. I think that is why it happened.Baltimore and Philadelphia had a preseason game called off in 2001 when a new artificial turf at Veterans Stadium, the former home of the Eagles, was deemed unsafe for playing on. Ryan was the defensive line coach for the Ravens that year, so the news on Sunday night resonated with him.I get it. Everybody involved in the NFL wants to have that game played, Ryan said. I know everybody was excited about it, and you get a chance to see two teams play when nobody else is playing.Certainly, as a fan, everybody was excited about it. But the NFL, to their credit, did the right thing. If the fields not suitable to play, then you dont play.The Hall of Fame announced Monday the refund procedure for fans who had tickets, though no extras were offered for the inconvenience. The league offered little insight beyond what was announced about the conditions the night before.We are working with the Hall and the field supplier to determine what caused this issue, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.This is a detail-oriented league that, for example, fines players for uniform violations. So the condition of the playing surface is a serious matter.The NFL now has a separate website solely for information about its football operations , which includes a detailed page describing procedures and standards for preparing and certifying playing fields around the league.Surfaces are tested for hardness up to 72 hours before each game. The depth and evenness of the infill is measured. Even the color of the tarp is prescribed.Few things play a more important role in the quality, integrity and safety of an NFL game than the playing field, the leagues mission statement reads. All playing surfaces must be in the best possible condition to showcase the players skills and talents.---AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner in Canton, Ohio, and AP Sports Writers Tom Canavan in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Charles Odum in Flowery Branch, Georgia, Andrew Seligman in Bourbounnais, Illinois, John Wawrow in Pittsford, New York, and Dennis Waszak in Florham Park, New Jersey, contributed to this report.---Online:AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Howard Wilson Youth Jersey .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Zane Gonzalez Youth Jersey . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. http://www.brownsauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Howard-Wilson-Browns-Jersey/ .

Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson was suspended 10 games Tuesday for a second violation of the NFLs substance abuse policy.Henderson, 24, missed the first four games of the season for his initial violation of the substance abuse policy. Hendersons agent, Brian Fettner, told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter in September that the positive test was triggered because Henderson was using medical marijuana to treat Crohns disease, an inflammatory condition that affects the digestive system.After serving his four-game suspension, Henderson has appeared in just one game this season -- in a reserve role. Jordan Mills has started all 11 games this season for the Bills at right tackle.Henderson tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine in 2014, a source told Schefter. He also was suspended for failed drug tests while playing at Miami. His history with substance abuse caused some teams to remove him from their draft boards.Henderson missed the final five games of last season after he was diagnosed with Croohns disease. DeShone Kizer Browns Jersey.

CLEVELAND -- Once his long drive caromed into no mans land, Tyler Naquin kept going. Gary Neal Wizards Jersey . And going. And going.Naquin sprinted around the bases, stumbled toward home plate and scored with a head-first dive.Then he was mobbed by his Cleveland teammates -- they all wanted to celebrate a game-winning inside-the-park home run in the ninth inning.Even by walk-off standards, the Indians 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night was a stunner.That was a pretty cool moment, Naquin said. I almost fell down there for a second. I wanted to just keep running.It was the first game-ending inside-the-park homer since Angel Pagan did it for San Francisco against Colorado in 2013, according to baseballreference.com.Naquins mad dash capped a two-run rally. Toronto took a 2-1 lead into the ninth in a matchup of AL division leaders.Closer Roberto Osuna (2-2) retired the first batter, but Jose Ramirez tied it with a home run.Naquin followed with a fly that hit the top of the right-field wall, above the leap of Michael Saunders. The ball bounced away at an angle and center fielder Melvin Upton Jr. gave chase as Naquin rounded second.Upton finally retrieved the ball, but fell down as third base coach Mike Sarbaugh waved Naquin home. Upton flung it toward the infield, and Naquin reached the plate way ahead of second baseman Devon Travis relay.I was just thinking after I hit it, I took a couple steps out of the box and just pictured it kicking off the wall, Naquin said. I thought, `I have a chance to score if it kicks far enough. And sure enough, it did.On Thursday night, the rookie lofted a sacrifice fly as a pinch-hitter in the ninth to lift Cleveland over the White Sox.Id actually like to win by five or 10 so we dont have to do that, Naquin said.This was only the second time -- and first since 1916 by Braggo Roth -- the Indians ended a win with an inside-the-park home run, ESPN Stats and Info said.Jeff Manship (2-1) pitched the ninth. Osuna blew his third save in 30 chances.Trevor Bauer struck out a career-high 13 in eight innings.Russell Martin hit a two-run homer in the first for Toronto.The win increased Clevelands lead in the AL Central over Detroit to seven games. Torontos lead over Boston in the AL East was cut to a half-game.The crowd of 30,665 featured several thousand Blue Jays fans who matched cheers and chants with Indians fans throughout the game.It was a heck of a game, both sides, Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. Good pitching, good crowd excitement, good baseball.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons obviously felt differently about the shocking ending.That was tough, he said. We were sitting pretty good. That went from feeling pretty good to feeling rotten pretty quick.Mike Napoli hit an RBI single in the sixth for Cleveland.Toronto played without third baseman Josh Donaldson (jammed right thumb) and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (sore calf).THE CHAMP IS HEREUntil the wild finish, the biggest cheer of the night went to LeBron James, who watched the game from a suite. James led the Cavaliers past Golden State in the NBA Finals, Clevelands first championship in 52 years.ROSTER NEWSThe Indians called up RHP Shawn Armstrong from Triple-A Columbus and optioned left-hander Kyle Crockett to the same club. The Blue Jays optioned outfielder Darrell Ceciliani to Triple-A Buffalo.TRAINERS ROOMBlue Jays: Manager John Gibbons expects Donaldson and Tulowitzki to be available Saturday.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Aaron Sanchez will start for the first time since Aug. 13 as the team attempts to limit his innings.Indians: RHP Josh Tomlin returns from the family medical emergency list.

OAKLAND, Calif. Claudio Marchisio Jersey . -- Pirates manager Clint Hurdle was in the clubhouse relaxing when his bullpen put the finishing touches on the teams third come-from-behind win in three days.With their relievers pitching so well lately, the Pirates are ready for a four-game series with NL rival St. Louis beginning Monday.Adam Frazier tripled in the tying run with one out in the sixth, then scored on an infield single to lift the Pirates to a 6-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.Four Pittsburgh relievers combined to retire the final 12 batters, extending the bullpens scoreless streak to 32 2/3 innings.The guys in front had to deal with some traffic today and they stayed focused on making the next good pitch, Hurdle said after the Pirates seventh win in nine games. They all just stayed within themselves, kept their composure and competed with the skills that they had. It worked out well for us.Hurdle wasnt around to see it on the field. He was ejected in the bottom of the sixth for arguing balls and strikes.The As scored twice in the second but managed only one run the rest of the way, despite getting men on base in five of the final six innings.A.J. Schugel pitched out of a one-out jam in the sixth with runners on the corners. Neftali Feliz retired three straight in the seventh after giving up consecutive singles. Tony Watson got a double play to end the eighth following a one-out single by Yonder Alonso before Mark Melancon pitched the ninth for his 24th save, preserving Francisco Lirianos first win in more than five weeks.When you have one of those days when you dont have your `A game, its nice to know that the bullpen is going to do a great job, said Liriano, who allowed three runs and six hits with two strikeouts and one walk. Theyve done a great job the last couple of years and this year, too.David Friese hit a two-run homer and Gregory Polanco added two RBI as the Pirates completed the three-game sweep in their first visit to the Oakland Coliseum since 2010.Liriano (5-8) pitched five innings to win for the first time since May 24. The lefty had lost five straight games before beating the As to help extend Pittsburghs winning streak to four.Billy Butler had an RBI double and scored for Oakland. The As have lost four straight after winning the opener on this five-game homestand.We got derailed again this series, Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. Its frustrating but no more for me than anyone else.John Jaso had two hits for Pittsburgh to snap a 0-for-10 skid. Jaso was also hit by a pitch in the fifth before Polancos two-run single.Friese, who entered the game as a pinch hitter in the sixth, homered off John Axford in the eighth.BAKED McBRIDEMatt McBride was called up from Triple-A Nashville to replace injured Oakland backup catcher Josh Phegley on the roster but didnt arrive at the Coliseum until shortly before first pitch. He started and batted eighth, going 1 for 2 in two plate appearances before getting lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: OF Andrew McCutchen took the day off to rest his sore left heel. McCutchen was injured while sliding into home plate on a wild pitch Friday.Athletics: Reliever Francisco Rodriguez left the game with a right shoulder strain after facing one batter in the eighth. He is scheduled to have an MRI. . Phegley was placed on the disabled list with what team officials are calling a right knee strain. Melvin said its possible that Phegley will require surgery.UP NEXTPirates: Jonathon Niese (6-6) takes a four-game losing streak into Monday afternoons start in St. Louis. The lefty has a 5.32 ERA on the road this season.Athletics: Right-hander Kendall Graveman (3-6) pitches the series opener in Minnesota on Monday. Graveman has allowed two runs or less in six of his previous eight starts. Sami Khedira Juventus Jersey .

The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. (STATS) -- North Carolina A&T proved it was worthy of beginning a season as a nationally ranked team for the first time in 12 years with a blowout victory in its 2016 opener, but it came against a Division II opponent.Next up for the Aggies is a visit to FBS school Kent State on Saturday night, one of four games for Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference squads in Week 2 where a STATS FCS Top 25 team will be on the field.North Carolina A&T rolled to a 62-0 win over St. Augustines last weekend and climbed two spots in the rankings Monday to No. 23. Lamar Raynard went 17 of 21 for 170 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 1-yard scoring run, and two-time MEAC offensive player of the year and All-American Tarik Cohen rushed for two TDs and 44 yards on just eight carries.Cohen broke Stoney Polites school record for career touchdowns.I feel like I got enough touches, said Cohen, who has 40 rushing TDs and two receiving scores in 35 career games. I had two touchdowns. I know the team wants to have me for the rest of the season, so we dont want any stupid injuries getting in the way of that.Kent State of the Mid-American Conference opened its season with a 33-13 loss at Big Ten member Penn State, but the Golden Flashes trailed by just three at halftime. Aggies coach Rod Broadway knows facing an FBS team after a Division II opponent wont be easy.The thing that sticks out is the speed at which these guys play, Broadway said. Im sure we were fast last week playing against St. Augustines and now when I look at Kent State, Kent States fast. Ill say it again, theres a distinct difference between us and Division I. Were not at that level yet. ... With that said, were going to go up there and compete and were going to try to win the ballgame.In other matchups for MEAC teams Saturday, Norfolk State visits No. 2 Richmond (CAA Football), Hampton hosts 13th-ranked William & Mary (CAA Football)) and Florida A&M heads out to take on No. Alex Sandro Juventus Jersey. 17 Coastal Carolina, an FCS independent thats transitioning to the Sun Belt Conference in the FBS.Norfolk State opened with a 20-12 win over Division II Elizabeth City State, Hampton was routed 54-21 on the road by Conference USA member Old Dominion and Florida A&M lost 70-3 at Miami of the Atlantic Coast Conference.The Spartans will face a Richmond team that stunned ACC member Virginia 37-20 in its opener, the Pirates get a visit from William & Mary after the Tribe fell 48-14 at North Carolina State (ACC) and the Rattlers meet a Coastal Carolina team that beat Southland Conference opponent Lamar 38-14.North Carolina A&T and Norfolk State were the only MEAC teams to open with wins. The other eight squads that played were completely overmatched, getting outscored by a combined score of 424-81.The Aggies have dropped all three meetings with FBS teams by an average of 39.7 points, while Kent State is riding a 13-game winning streak over FCS opponents.If North Carolina A&T played in the FCS playoffs it would be interesting to see how far they could go, Golden Flashes coach Paul Haynes said. I think they are just as talented as some of the top teams like North Dakota State and Eastern Washington. Our guys are going to respect the heck out of them.In games that dont feature STATS FCS Top 25 teams, Howard visits Rutgers (Big Ten), Delaware State hosts Monmouth (Big South), Morgan State plays at Marshall (C-USA), South Carolina State visits Louisiana Tech (C-USA), Savannah State travels to Southern Miss (C-USA), North Carolina Central pays a visit to Western Michigan (Mid-American) and Bethune-Cookman goes to North Texas (C-USA) after its opener against Alcorn State was canceled due to weather. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

GLENDALE, Ariz. Lassana Diarra Jersey . -- Now you know why Tom Brady did not seem terribly thrilled this summer with the whole notion of Jimmy Garoppolo, first-string temp. The kid has a lot of talent, a little swagger and the kind of cover boy looks that, you know, a supermodel could fall for.Oh yeah, and hes 15 years younger than the 39-year-old Brady. Deep down, even a four-time Super Bowl champ who will likely go down as the greatest quarterback of all time could feel a little threatened by that.Bill Belichick has already Gronk-spiked the notion that a 4-0 Garoppolo could keep Brady on the bench for Week 5 in Cleveland, so theres no point in harboring any crazy ideas. Only heres the thing: Everyone gets replaced at some point, thanks to human frailty and the indomitable forces of gravity and time. Just as clearly as Ted Williams, Bill Russell, Bobby Orr and Larry Bird were replaced in Boston, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. is going to be replaced in Foxborough.And Sunday night, Garoppolo offered up the first strong suggestion that he might be the man worthy of the honor. In fact, as a nod to Bradys childhood idol, Joe Montana, Garoppolo showed he just might be the New England Patriots answer to Steve Young.No, Garoppolo doesnt have Youngs athleticism, even if Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians tried warning his team during the week that the new Patriots quarterback had feet like Michael Vick. But Garoppolo, 24, can move around in ways Brady cannot, and the time he bought for himself was critical in this highly improbable 23-21 victory over a home team that was, by Arians admission, obviously not ready to play.More to the point, the Cardinals were not ready to play against this version of Garoppolo, who walked into his first career start facing the worst kind of circumstances. Carson Wentz got the Cleveland Browns at home. Garoppolo? He traveled across the country to face a Super Bowl contender with a fearsome defense, a thundering dome crowd and every reason to believe it would shred a Patriots offense missing the injured Rob Gronkowski and a couple of starters on the offensive line.The Patriots were 9?-point underdogs, the biggest spread against them since they upset the St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl nearly 15 years ago. I picked New England to go 3-1 without Brady. I thought this would be the 1.And yet Garoppolo was last seen walking out of University of Phoenix Stadium with a self-satisfied smirk on his face and two footballs tucked under his left arm, one a game ball. He took smelling salts before the game (Nothing crazy, it just gets you going, he said), and then it was no Brady, no Gronk, no problem from there.Garoppolo overthrew Chris Hogan on the first play of the rest of his life, and then he calmly led the Patriots on an eight-play, 74-yard drive. He found a wide-open Hogan down the left sideline for a 37-year-old touchdown, following the game plan that instructed him to attack the Arizona rookie corner?Brandon Williams, who had been a running back for most of his college career.Garoppolo?weathered his share of big hits as the night unfolded and backed up Belichicks earlier claims about his physical toughness. In the second quarter, Garoppolo was blasted by a blitzing Tony Jefferson on a second-down incompletion, then he stood tall on the very next play in hitting Hogan for 19 yards.Jimmy made some really gutsy plays, Patriots defensive end?Chris Long said. He has a quiet confidence, and everyone on this team was confident in him.Garoppolo did fumble the ball on a sack, and the Cardinals did recover and later score to cut their deficit to 10-7. But in the fight for that loose ball, Garoppolo angrily rolled over the top of his former teammate, Chandler Jones, and dug an arm underneath the linebacker in a vain attempt to rip away the ball. In other words, even in his worst moment Sunday night, Garoppolo was putting up a fight.He caught his own deflected pass and ran for three yards (lets see Brady do that). He scrambled 10 yards for a first down. He burned Williams again, and he kept denting Arizonas spirit with big third-down plays (the Patriots converted 10 of 16 chances).In the fourth quarter, after the great Larry Fitzgerald did what the great Larry Fitzgerald does -- borrowing an over-the-head catch out of the Willie Mays playbook for his 100th career touchdown -- Garoppolo had to deliver the throw of the night on third-and-15, with the home crowd at full roar. He used his dancers feet, stepped up and fired a pass down the middle just before he got drilled from behind. Danny Amendola made the 32-yard catch, and soon enough Stephen Gostkowski was returning a lead to the Patriots that they wouldnt surrender.Hes incredible, Patriots defensive back?Devin McCourty said of Garoppolo. All game he went out there and made the plays he was supposed to make.We believed in him. There was no doubt in this locker room that Jimmy could go out there and play.The Cardinals had their chance to reduce the visiting quarterbacks performance?to a moral victory, the equivalent of a mortal sin in New England, but they botched the snap and the kick that wouldve done the trick. Belichick wasted precious seconds before finally calling a timeout before Arizonas last-ditch field goal attempt; he explained that when he saw the Cardinals rush onto the field, he figured (incorrectly) that they would rush the kick and allow him to save the timeout for Garoppolo.The scene summoned the memory of Belichicks dramatic timeout gamble the last time his team had played in this building in the Super Bowl 19 months ago, when Belichicks stare down of a frazzled Pete Carroll led to Seattles, well, you know what it led to.When it was over Sunday night, Belichick wanted no part of the canonization of Saint Jimmy, mocking the notion that he cared a lick about Garoppolos play as the news medias lead storyline. His former boss, Bill Parcells, liked to say a certain great player was heading to Canton on roller skates. Belichick wasnt about to lace em up for his kid quarterback.Good, was the coachs assessment of Garoppolos play. Asked to elaborate, Belichick said, Its been good. He made some plays. Its not perfect, but he made a lot of good plays.As it turned out, Garoppolo made enough good plays to complete 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards, and to go punch for punch with an old pro, Carson Palmer. By comparison, a 24-year-old Tom Brady was no comparison in his first NFL start; he went 13-for-23 for 168 yards and no touchdowns in a Week 3 victory over the Colts in 2001.Garoppolo said he was amped up before the game. He didnt need any time to catch up to the speed of his first regular-season game -- and to remain one step ahead of a defense heavily favored to eat him alive.We were confident going into the game, Garoppolo said, and it showed.Hes no longer a quarterback at Eastern Illinois, breaking?Tony Romos records and lighting it up against the?Eastern Kentuckys and Murray States. Garoppolo is officially a big leaguer now. He started acting that way when he called practice a smoother operation after the suspended Brady was banished from the grounds. And when he told WEEI of his possible not-too-distant future as a Patriots starter: Its a crazy league, and anythings possible, really.Just as crazy as it was on Sept. 23, 2001, the first Sunday of pro football after the 9/11 attacks. When Drew Bledsoe, $103 million man, was knocked out by Mo Lewis of the Jets, who could possibly believe that some sixth-round scarecrow could become what he became?Brady grew into a titan so big that the Patriots slapped an outsized banner of him on the Gillette Stadium lighthouse. Now that banner has been taken down, physically and symbolically, to make room for Garoppolos team next Sunday.Brady will be the starting quarterback in October, but he knows this isnt a lifetime job. He watched his idol, Montana, get forced out in San Francisco. If Garoppolo turns out to be New Englands Steve Young, Bradys challenge will be to handle it with more grace than Montana did. Eliaquim Mangala Jersey . Inter president Erick Thohir says in a club statement on Wednesday that Vidic is "one of the worlds best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree, and charisma will be an asset. Anthony Martial Jersey .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. http://www.nationalfrancesoccer.com/anthony-martial-france-jersey/ . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M is getting used to running its offense through its big men, and the Aggies so far are digging the results. Center Tyler Davis scored 17 points and guard D.J. Hogg added 12 as Texas A&M overwhelmed American for a 76-53 victory on Monday night in Reed Arena.For the second consecutive game against an undersized opponent, the Aggies (2-0) dominated inside, in outscoring the Eagles 44-22 in the paint.Our guys bought in defensively, and our length and our size in the paint gave them problems, A&M coach Billy Kennedy said. We have good size at every position.Hogg added a game-high nine rebounds, and A&M freshman forward Robert Williams added 10 points and two blocks in only his second game. Williams (6-9, 237) now has seven blocks on the season.Delante Jones led American (2-0) with 18 points and Saeed Nelson followed with 12. The Aggies made 6 of 14 3-pointers (42.9 percent), including a combined 4 of 5 by Hogg and freshman Eric Vila.The Aggies led 20-15 a little more than midway through the first half when they decided, thanks in large part to the 6-10 Davis and 6-9 Hogg, to put away the Eagles by the break. Davis and Hogg combined to make 9 of 13 field goals in the first half in staking A&M to a 41-20 lead.Theyre really big and talented and good at what they do, American coach Mike Brennan said of the Aggies. We knew it was going to be a huge challenge. Their perimeter guys are just as good as their big men -- they can make shots and play on the perimeter -- but their focus is getting the ball inside.The Aggies had dominated Northwestern State 42-8 in points in the paint in their Friday opener, a 72-44 victory over the Demons, when Davis also led the way with a game-high 16 points and 10 rebounds.Its beautiful, Hogg said of running the offense through the big men, particularly Davis, a preseason first-team All-SEC selection by the coaches. Tyler takes a lot of pressuree off of us, because he needs a double team to be stopped. Laurent Koscielny France Jersey. Otherwise its bucket after bucket.BIG PICTUREThe Aggies were wary of American only losing by six points (62-56) at Maryland on Friday, so they used their lopsided size advantage early and often to overwhelm the Eagles. A&M intends to work inside-out on offense all season, with center Tyler Davis the focal point.The Eagles are hoping a couple of rugged road losses to start the season will help when they need it most, and when the competition isnt quite as tough: in Patriot League action.HIGHLIGHT REEL:A&M freshman forward Robert Williams sailed above the rim for an alley-oop slam dunk on a pass from D.J. Hogg to make the score 62-32 in the second half. Williams already owns a collection of highlights in only two games for A&M.STAT OF THE NIGHT: Because of the 19-point lead at halftime, A&M was able to get nine players at least 14 minutes each in the game, and the Aggies reserves outscored their counterparts 31-6.HE SAID IT: The bigs make it easier on us. They give us open shots, because people have to dig in down low. A&M guard D.J. HoggTHEY SANG IT: A&M students serenaded sophomore guard Admon Gilder with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday on the night of his 21st. Their timing was questionable, considering he was about to shoot a free throw. He made it.HE SAID IT PART TWO: I was about to say, `Quiet down, so he can focus. Hogg, chuckling, on Gilder preparing to shoot the free throw under the pressure of happy birthday to you.UP NEXTThe Aggies schedule toughens on Friday, when they play host to Southern California and try and stay undefeated on the early season.The Eagles will try and earn their first win of the season on Thursday at Akron after tough losses at Maryland and A&M to start the season. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
