SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jerseys gave away everything but the game.

Jimmy Garoppolo threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Dante Pettis with 1:15 remaining and the 49ers overcame five turnovers to beat the Cheap Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys 24-20 on Sunday for their first 3-0 start in 21 years.

“It’s never perfect,” cornerback Richard Sherman said. “We didn’t play perfect today but our record is perfect.”

The Niners gave the ball away four times in the first half and then lost a fumble again in the fourth quarter, but still managed to pull out the victory and spoil Mason Rudolph’s first career start in place of the injured Ben Roethlisberger for the Steelers (0-3).

A team that won just 10 games combined in coach Kyle Shanahan’s first two seasons heads into a week off in good shape after surviving the home opener.

“It’s a good start,” Garoppolo said. “There’s a lot of football left. Three wins won’t get you anything in this league.”

Rudolph threw two long touchdown passes in the second half, connecting on a 76-yarder to JuJu Smith-Schuster and a 39-yarder to Diontae Johnson that gave the Steelers a 20-17 lead in the fourth quarter.

The Niners answered the first strike with a 75-yard touchdown drive capped by a 4-yard run by Jeff Wilson Jr. and appeared poised to do the same when they drove inside the 10 following the second score.

But on third down from the 7, a shotgun snap hit receiver Richie James Jr. as he went in motion and T.J. Watt recovered the fumble for Pittsburgh on San Francisco’s third red-zone turnover of the game.

The Steelers then gave it right back when James Conner was stripped by Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner recovered at the 24. After a third-down holding penalty on Mark Barron extended the drive, Garoppolo found Pettis for the go-ahead score.

Pettis had caught just four passes for 22 yards this season before the TD grab, but made the biggest play yet for San Francisco.

“There obviously have been a lot of ups and downs,” he said. “You’re not just going to be good every single day. Now that I know what it’s like to go through that, I know I can do this. I know I’m here for a reason.”

Pittsburgh was unable to generate a first down on the ensuing drive with Rudolph taking a sack on third down and throwing an incompletion on fourth to send the Steelers to their second 0-3 start since 2000.

“We get ready for next week,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “It’s as simple as that. That’s life in the National Football League. It’d be the same had we won. We’re not into the keep it together discussions. That’s not how we’re built.”

Garoppolo finished 22 for 32 for 277 yards. He threw two interceptions on the first three drives on passes that hit his receivers’ hands and also lost a fumble on a bad snap from centre by Weston Richburg with the Niners inside the Pittsburgh 10.

Rudolph finished 14 for 27 for 174 yards, throwing an interception to K’Waun Williams on the opening drive of the second half to set up Wilson’s first touchdown.

INJURIES

Steelers: TE Vance McDonald left the game in the first half with a shoulder injury.

49ers: CB Ahkello Witherspoon left in the second half with a foot injury that he doesn’t believe is serious.

IMPRESSIVE DEBUT

Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick made a big impact in his first game since being acquired from Miami this past week in a deal that sent a first-round pick to the Dolphins. He intercepted a pass in the first quarter and then forced a fumble by Raheem Mostert in the red zone in the second quarter that Devin Bush recovered. He became the first Steelers player with an interception and forced fumble in the opening half since James Harrison did it against the Chargers on Nov. 16, 2008.

ROUGH DEBUT

Cornerback Jason Verrett made his debut for the Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jerseys and was picked on after Witherspoon left with the injury. He committed a 32-yard pass interference penalty and then was beaten deep by Johnson on a 39-yard score the following play to give the Steelers a 20-17 lead in the fourth quarter.

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES

The first two turnovers by San Francisco gave the Steelers the ball in scoring position but they were unable to generate a first down on either drive and settled for field goals. Rudolph completed three passes for only 5 yards the first possession, leading to a 46-yard field goal by Chris Boswell. Rudolph then threw an incomplete pass on third-and-5 following two runs by James Conner, leading to a 26-yard field goal.

Cheap Authentic Fake Nike NHL Jerseys

OTTAWA — The Cheap Ottawa Senators Jerseys
called their 4-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night a good lesson.

The Senators were outplayed from start to finish in nearly every area of the game, but if it had to happen the pre-season is as good a time as any.

“They had a bunch of hungry guys trying to make the NHL and we didn’t work as hard as in camp and some previous games so that was disappointing,” said Senators head coach D.J. Smith. “Third period we worked and that’s all I’ve asked is if you’ve worked every single day and that was the first time we didn’t and it was obvious.”

The Cheap Montreal Canadiens Jerseys improved to a perfect 4-0-0 in this year’s pre-season with the win.

Keith Kinkaid stopped all 27 shots he faced and looked solid when challenged. Jeff Petry, Jake Evans, Thomas Tatar and Phillip Danault also scored for Montreal.

“He didn’t have many pucks, but we always say that about a goaltender,” said Canadiens coach Claude Julien. “When you don’t get a ton of shots you need to keep your focus. What I liked about him is he made some big saves at times. They were really crashing the net…but he held his ground and I thought he made some big saves and he was pretty solid so I’m pretty happy with what I saw of him (Saturday).”

Like most coaches, Julien doesn’t put a ton of stock in pre-season records, but at the same time says it is important.

“It gives you confidence if you win (in the pre-season),” said Julien. “We’ve won with split squads so that’s been good as well. It’s never a bad thing to win.”

Craig Anderson stopped 27-of-29 shots through two periods of play and was the only reason the game was close as the Senators (2-1-0) were being heavily outplayed. Joey Daccord gave up two goals on five shots in the third period.

The Senators made no excuses and know they need to be better as the regular season approaches.

“We’re playing at home and we’re trying to be too nice with everybody on the team,” said Ottawa’s Thomas Chabot, who played his first pre-season game. “This is a good reminder that we still have a lot of work ahead of us before the season starts.”

Special teams were a big factor as the Canadiens went 3 for 3 on the power play, while the Senators were 0 for 5 with the man advantage.

Part of Cheap Ottawa Senators Jerseys
‘s problem was its inability to win draws when it counted.

“If you start with the puck it’s significantly different,” said Smith. “We were better later in the game, but we’re just getting the kinks out, Chabot’s first game and people just learning each other so I’m not going to worry about that.”

Leading 2-0, the Canadiens extended their lead early in the third period, scoring twice in a span of 39 seconds.

Tatar made it 3-0 by beating Daccord glove side and seconds later Danault fired a shot from just inside the blue-line to make it 4-0.

Montreal opened the scoring on the power play at the six-minute mark of the second.

Nikita Zaitsev had blocked a shot, but the puck went right to Petry who beat Anderson short side.

Minutes later, Anderson made an impressive save on Nick Suzuki as the Canadiens were all over the Senators.

Montreal made it 2-0 late in the period as Anderson put the puck behind the net, but it was Montreal’s Riley Barber who won the footrace and passed it out front to Evans.

The Senators were outshot 18-6 in the second period and five of those shots came in the final two minutes of the period.

Both teams had some chances in the first period, but the game remained scoreless after 20 minutes.

The Senators are expected to make some cuts to their roster on Sunday as they prepare for two games in Vancouver this week.

Discount NBA Cheap Jerseys

NEW YORK — The Brooklyn Nets have a new owner and a new CEO.

Alibaba co-founder Joe Tsai completed his purchase of the team and Barclays Center on Wednesday, then announced that he had hired former Turner Broadcasting President David Levy to oversee both.

Tsai’s purchase of the Nets was unanimously approved Wednesday by the NBA’s board of governors. He spent nearly $3.5 billion for the team and the arena, a record sale for a U.S. sports franchise.

The native of Taiwan already had purchased 49% of the team from Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov in 2018, with the option to become controlling owner in 2021, but pushed up that timeline for full ownership of the team.

“In addition to being a passionate basketball fan, Joe is one of China’s pre-eminent internet, media and e-commerce pioneers and his expertise will be invaluable in the league’s efforts to grow the game in China and other global markets,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.

After Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City to join the Golden State Warriors in 2016, fans haven’t been shy about letting Durant hear it when he goes back to Chesapeake Energy Arena.

It looks like Durant’s memories of the franchise aren’t too fond, either. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Durant described his feelings for his former city.

“People coming to my house and spray-painting on the for sale signs around my neighborhood,” Durant told the WSJ’s J.R. Moehringer. “People making videos in front of my house and burning my jerseys and calling me all types of crazy names.”

“I’ll never be attached to that city again because of that. I eventually wanted to come back to that city and be part of that community and organization, but I don’t trust nobody there. That s— must have been fake, what they was doing. The organization, the GM, I ain’t talked to none of those people, even had a nice exchange with those people, since I left.”

The now-Brooklyn Nets forward also discussed his feelings with the business side of today’s NBA.

“Some days I hate the circus of the NBA,” Durant told the WSJ. “Some days I hate that the players let the NBA business, the fame that comes with the business, alter their minds about the game. Sometimes I don’t like being around the executives and politics that come with it. I hate that.”

Durant added that he still loves the game and “wouldn’t have seen stuff that I’ve seen” without basketball.

Durant signed a four-year, $164 million deal with the Cheap Brooklyn Nets Jerseys
after spending the previous three years in Golden State, winning two championships. He is expected to miss most — if not all — of next season after sustaining a torn Achilles tendon in the NBA Finals.

The Nets will travel to China next month to play two preseason games against the Cheap Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys
at the start of a season filled with excitement for the team. They signed Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in July, adding two superstars to a team that made the playoffs last season.

Silver called the Nets a “thriving team, well-positioned for the future,” and Tsai praised general manager Sean Marks and coach Kenny Atkinson for building it.

“They established the culture, developed talent that others couldn’t see, and made Brooklyn the place where the best players want to play,” Tsai said.

Tsai, the executive vice chairman of the Alibaba Group, the Chinese e-commerce giant, paid $2.35 billion for the Nets and about $1 billion in a separate transaction for the arena. The team price surpassed the $2.2 billion that Tilman Fertitta paid for the NBA’s Houston Rockets and that David Tepper spent for the NFL’s Carolina Panthers.

Levy will also serve as president of J Tsai Sports, the sports investment and holding vehicle controlled by Tsai whose portfolio includes the WNBA’s New York Liberty, as well as other sports teams and companies in both the U.S and overseas. Levy worked closely with the NBA while at Turner and in his new role will oversee all business, revenue, strategy and operations for the Nets and Barclays Center.

Wholesale Fake Replica MLB Jerseys

BOSTON — The San Francisco Giants helped manager Bruce Bochy reach yet another milestone before his retirement at the end of the season.

San Francisco’s 11-3 rout of the Red Sox on Wednesday night was Bochy’s 2,000th career victory as a manager in the majors.

“I’ve been lucky. I’ve been blessed to have been doing this this long. That’s what it means.” Bochy said.

Fans who stuck around Fenway Park were chanting Bochy’s name at the end and Boston manager Alex Cora saluted from the opposite dugout, knowing the significance of what Bochy has achieved in 25 years of managing.

“That number just represents so many people, more than anybody are those players. Hopefully when they hear that number, they realize what a big part they had to do with it. It doesn’t happen without them.”

The Giants broke out champagne in the clubhouse for a postgame celebration, which included a few understated remarks from their beloved skipper.

“It was actually pretty relaxed and very Boch-esque. Just gave a little speech and said what he always says — how much he appreciates the guys. And we know that, so that’s why we play so hard for him,” said Jeff Samardija, who took a no-hitter into the sixth on Bochy’s big night. “You don’t want to let him down. When you have that respect for a manager, the team shows up every night and is always competing.”

Bochy won 951 games while managing the San Diego Padres over 12 seasons and is 1,049-1,047 in 13 years with San Francisco, which won three World Series titles with Bochy at the helm.

Cora opened his postgame remarks by congratulating Bochy.

“At this level that’s kind of like unreal. I think everybody that gets to do this job wish they could last that long and be able to do what he has done throughout his career,” Cora, who is wrapping up just his second season as a manager in the majors. “The way he’s gone about the business. I mean, he’s been amazing, so congratulations.”

The Cheap New York Giants Jerseys
helped Bochy reach 2,000 with just 10 games remaining in the season. The 10 other managers to win 2,000 are all Hall of Famers and Bochy is sure to follow.

“He’s just a players’ coach, which I think is the ultimate compliment,” Samardzija said. “He understands the sacrifices we make. He understands the grind we go through. He hasn’t forgotten that.”

Samardzija didn’t allow a hit until the sixth inning and the Giants gave him plenty of offence, tagging eight Boston pitchers for 15 hits while winning for the second straight night at Fenway Park. San Francisco blew the game open with two runs in the eighth and five more in the ninth and will try and complete a three-game sweep of the interleague series Thursday afternoon.

Rafael Devers hit his 30th home run and Jackie Bradley Jr. homered for the second straight night for the Red Sox.

BOSTON — A year after their record-setting, World Series championship season, the Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys
are looking for meaning wherever they can find it.

Long ago finished in the AL East race and on the verge of wild-card elimination as well, the defending champs managed to keep alive Eduardo Rodriguez’s chances of a 20-win season, barely saving his 18th victory while beating the San Francisco Cheap New York Giants Jerseys
5-4 on Thursday.

“There was a lot of talk about that,” said manager Alex Cora, who led the team to 108 wins and the title in his first season on the bench. “We set the rotation for him to get as many wins as possible. If we didn’t win this one, we probably make an adjustment but he’s still got a shot.”

After entering the season as the No. 5 starter behind ace Chris Sale, Cy Young winners David Price and Rick Porcello and World Series hero Nathan Eovaldi, Rodriguez (18-6) has established himself as Boston’s best pitcher in an otherwise forgettable season.

He struck out 10 over six innings of two-hit ball, walking two and allowing one unearned run to reach 191 1/3 innings pitched and 199 strikeouts for the season — both career highs, by far. He is scheduled to start again on Tuesday against Texas and then again against the Orioles on the final day of the season.

“He’s been a model of consistency,” said Brandon Workman, who pitched into and out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth for his 15th save. “He’s close to 20 wins and he’s close to 200 innings pitched. That’s two good benchmarks for him to reach.”

Xander Bogaerts had a pair of RBI singles to drive in three runs, and Rafael Devers had two RBIs for Boston, which would be eliminated from the wild-card race with one more loss or Tampa Bay win.

Mike Yastrzemski, the grandson of Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys
Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, was supposed to get the day off “to take it all in,” but manager Bruce Bochy sent him up as a pinch-hitter in the eighth. He singled and scored as the Giants cut a four-run deficit to 5-3.

He came up again in the ninth after Workman loaded the bases with nobody out, then struck out Brandon Crawford.

“I was hoping,” Bochy said. “That would have been pretty nice if Yaz hit a gapper or something to win the game for us.”

Yastrzemski struck out and then, after Kevin Pillar walked to make it a one-run game, Workman fanned Evan Longoria.

“It was really fun to have the best seat in the house for the game,” Yastrzemski said. “As great of an environment as it was, there was some stress and some stuff that I wasn’t used to. I learned how to deal with it. … So that just kind of gives me a little more confidence.”

Madison Bumgarner (9-9) lost in his first career start at Fenway Park, giving up five runs on nine hits and two walks in five innings while striking out seven. He allowed the first four Boston batters to reach safely and fell behind 2-1 after one inning, and 5-1 after two.

That was the last of the scoring until Pillar hit a two-run double off Marcus Walden in the eighth to make it 5-3. Matt Barnes came in and walked Longoria, then gave up Buster Posey’s high chopper that handcuffed Devers at third to load the bases.

But Barnes struck out Stephen Vogt to end the inning.

YAZ

The younger Yastrzemski said the mementoes he will value most from the week are a pair of poster-sized photos of him and his grandfather walking in front of the Green Monster on Tuesday, and catching the ceremonial first pitch from the former Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys
captain on Wednesday night.

“I think those will be something that I cherish forever,” said Mike Yastrzemski, who homered in Tuesday night’s game. “Just one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments.”

E-ROD

Rodriguez is 9-0 in interleague starts in the past three seasons, including Game 4 of the 2018 World Series, and the Red Sox have a 15-0 record in those games.

Rodriguez has gone four straight starts with at least six innings and no more than one run. He has made it at least five innings in 26 straight starts since the beginning of May. Boston is 24-8 in his starts this year, tying Gerrit Cole for the most wins behind any starting pitcher in the majors.

NOTED

The game was played with three umpires because Sean Barber, who was scheduled to work the plate, was a late scratch. No reason was given. … Bumgarner reached the 200-inning mark for the seventh time in his career.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Red Sox: Reigning AL MVP Mookie Betts has been out a week for toe inflammation but could play at Tampa Bay this weekend, manager Alex Cora said. If he does, it would be at DH. … J.D. Martinez missed his second straight game after leaving Tuesday night with groin soreness. He could also return for the Rays series…. LHP David Price will see a hand specialist.

UP NEXT

Cheap New York Giants Jerseys
: Start a three-game series at Atlanta on Friday night. RHP Tyler Beede (5-9) will start the opener against Atlanta’s Mike Foltynewicz (7-5).

Red Sox: Open a four-game series at Tampa Bay on Friday night. Rick Porcello (13-12) will face Charlie Morton (15-6).

Stephen Vogt hit a two-run homer in the first and finished with four RBIs for the Giants. Samardzija (11-12) pitched six innings, holding Boston to one run on two hits and four walks. He struck out two.

WILD NIGHT

The Giants capitalized quickly on control issues by Boston starter Jhoulys Chacín, who was tagged for three runs in the first inning and didn’t make it through the third despite striking out six.

Chacín (3-11) was in trouble from the start with a walk to leadoff batter Mike Yastrzremski, followed by a Brandon Belt’s double to left-centre. Kevin Pillar drove in Yastzremski on a fielder’s choice and Vogt lined a two-out homer off the Pesky Pole to give the Giants a 3-0 lead.

Brandon Crawford’s RBI double in the third put San Francisco up 4-0, which was plenty of cushion for Samardzija, who didn’t allow a hit until Devers’ homer with two outs in the sixth.

Enderson Franco made his major-league debut when he started the ninth for San Francisco. He allowed Bradley’s homer, which bounced off the top of the Green Monster and was initially ruled a triple before being overturned after a video review.

MORE YAZ

Yastrzemski hit an RBI single in the ninth, one night after homering in his first game at Fenway, where his Hall of Fame grandfather, Carl, played 23 seasons with the Red Sox. Carl Yastrzemski, Boston’s beloved “Yaz,” threw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday night.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Giants: C Buster Posey (back, hip) could return to the lineup Thursday, Bochy said.

Red Sox: Cora said LHP David Price (cyst left wrist), who hasn’t pitched since Sept. 1, will have surgery on his left wrist and is done for the season. “We’re going to shut him down,” Cora said. “It’s a head start to next year and a smart thing to do.”. OF Mookie Betts missed his fourth straight game with inflammation in his left foot. Cora said Betts could return as DH this weekend when the Red Sox visit Tampa Bay. . IF Sam Travis was under the concussion protocol after getting hit in the head by a throw while sliding into third Tuesday night.

Cheap NFL Jerseys For Sale 2020

It’s Week 3 of fantasy football. Is your quarterback healthy?

The landscape at the position drastically changed with the loss of fantasy stalwarts Drew Brees (thumb, out at least six weeks) and Ben Roethlisberger (elbow, out for remainder of the season).

Both the Saints’ and Steelers’ high-scoring attacks are slowed down, leaving fantasy owners who were reliant on those offences to seek production elsewhere.

START: Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys: The Cheap Miami Dolphins Jerseys
were the league’s worst fantasy defence against opposing quarterbacks with the now-traded Minkah Fitzpatrick. Even without WR Michael Gallup, Prescott — who put his running skills on display in Week 2 — continues his impressive start to the regular season.

SIT: Cam Newton, QB, Panthers: He was in a walking boot on Wednesday, lending belief he may not be available against the Cardinals. Even if he was, Newton has yet to generate a touchdown and his minus-2 rushing yards is a sign that something’s wrong. If Newton’s not mobile, the Panthers offence becomes running back Christian McCaffrey facing eight-man fronts.

START: Austin Ekeler, RB, Chargers: Houston is 25th in receiving yards allowed to opposing running backs, a stat that sounds nice to fantasy owners of Ekeler, who averages 13.5 yards per reception and has two receiving scores. A third straight game of at least 130 yards from scrimmage is a strong possibility.

SIT: Carlos Hyde, RB, Texans: With Duke Johnson already making him a non-factor in the passing game, Hyde will have to find holes against a Chargers defence that bounced back from being dominated by Colts RB Marlon Mack in Week 1 by limiting the Lions to just 94 yards on 28 carries last week.

START: Kenny Golladay, WR, Lions: Only the Redskins have a worse fantasy defence against opposing receivers than the Eagles, who have given up five touchdown passes and eight completions of at least 20 yards. Golladay has scored in each of his first two games and should exceed his 9.5 targets per game average. Don’t be shocked if Golladay is among the top 10 scorers at his position this week.

SIT: Courtland Sutton, WR, Broncos: Emmanuel Sanders is clicking with Joe Flacco, having been targeted 20 times along with scoring in each of the first two games. Sutton will get a downfield shot or two, but the Denver passing game will find it hard to get on track against a surprisingly good Packers defence that is fourth in fewest fantasy points allowed to opposing wideouts.

START: Vance McDonald, TE, Steelers: New Steelers starting QB Mason Rudolph found McDonald for a pair of scoring receptions in last week’s loss to the Seahawks and will be in the neighbourhood of 8 to 10 targets as Rudolph looks to him as a security blanket while getting comfortable in the starting role.

SIT: Trey Burton, TE, Bears: Prior to Chicago’s game-winning drive in Week 2, Burton had one target. He finished with just two catches for 5 yards on three targets. He’s still not at 100 per cent, so Burton will be little more than a role player and occasional decoy against the Redskins on Monday night.

START: Nelson Agholor, WR, Eagles: Philly may be without starting wideouts Alshon Jeffrey (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin), thrusting Agholor into the spotlight against a Lions pass defence that has seen 66 passes targeted at receivers the first two weeks. Agholor went 8 for 11 in targets at the Falcons in Week 2 and will be a high-volume receiver.

In just 25 days, one fifth of the starting quarterbacks in the National Football League have been either injured or replaced or have retired.

That’s an absolutely staggering number.

The six teams that made a change (by choice or otherwise) will pick up the pieces and push forward as best they can over the next 15 weeks.

For the rest of the league, the last 25 days can serve as a cautionary tale.

The quarterback carousel began on Aug. 24, with the shocking revelation that the 2018 NFL Comeback Player of the Year decided he would not come back.

Andrew Luck, who just last week turned 30, stood on the Cheap Indianapolis Colts Jerseys
sideline during a preseason game at Lucas Oil Stadium as news of his retirement spread across social media.

With just two weeks to go before the start of the regular season, the Colts lost their franchise quarterback.

To outsiders, it seemed almost incomprehensible.

After throwing for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns in 2018, how could he possibly walk away now?

But for as dominant as he was when he was healthy, injuries had taken their toll over the years.

Luck missed 26 games due to various injuries in his career, which included broken ribs, a lacerated kidney, at least one concussion and a shoulder injury that sidelined him for a full year in 2017.

After spending the off-season rehabbing both physically and mentally, Luck finally confronted one of the most difficult decisions he has ever had to make.

He didn’t want to walk away when he did.

But he knew that if he didn’t, he might never get another opportunity to decide for himself.

So Luck retired.

Just like that, Indianapolis was forced to turn to Jacoby Brissett as its starter.

Two weeks later on Sept. 8, the rival Jacksonville Jaguars lost Nick Foles, their starting quarterback, to a broken clavicle.

Foles didn’t make it through a full quarter of regular season football in Jacksonville before he was sidelined indefinitely.

Only months after they signed Foles to a four-year, $88 million contract, the Jaguars were forced to turn to rookie sixth-round pick Gardner Minshew II as their starter.

Stephen A. isn’t giving up on Cam yet
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith isn’t convinced that the Panthers need to start looking for a successor to Cam Newton.

A few days later on Sept. 12, something the football world had suspected for some time was confirmed: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton isn’t 100 per cent.

Trailing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by six points at home with 1:28 left in the fourth quarter, the Panthers faced a crucial fourth-and-one situation at their opponent’s two-yard line.

Instead of running a QB sneak with Newton, an obvious play call in years past, Carolina lined up in the Wildcat formation with Newton as a decoy and handed the ball off to running back Christian McCaffrey.

McCaffrey tried to bounce it outside but was cut off by cornerback Vernon Hargreaves and pushed out of bounds short of the sticks.

Newton ended the game with two carries for zero yards.

He was also 25-of-51 for 333 passing yards.

When it was over, Newton shouldered the blame for the 20-14 loss. He also took accountability for the Panthers 0-2 start.

“Offensively, we didn’t hold up our end of the bargain. All fingers are just pointing back to me specifically on offence,” Newton told reporters after the game.

Taking a closer look at his performance, there are a number of indicators Newton isn’t fully healthy.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Newton led the NFL in off-target throws with 15 in Week 2 alone.

That is the most off-target throws by any quarterback in a single game since Week 7 of last season.

Even worse, Newton didn’t complete a single pass under pressure.

Newton went 0-for-10 and was sacked three times when under duress in passing situations.

Admittedly, there aren’t many people outside of the Panthers locker room that know the full extent of the injuries the 2015 NFL MVP is dealing with right now.

What we do know is that Newton had surgery on his throwing shoulder for the second time in three years this past off-season.

We know that he didn’t throw for most of the off-season for the second time in three years.

We also know that those surgeries haven’t resulted in an improvement in Newton’s downfield passing ability over the past couple of seasons.

The numbers reflect that.

In losses to the Buccaneers and Los Angeles Rams, Newton went 4-of-15 with zero touchdowns on pass attempts that travelled 15 yards or more down the field.

Finally, we know that a mobile quarterback that earned the nickname “Superman” in part because he has never finished with fewer than 585 rushing yards in a 16-game season has minus-two rushing yards through two losses.

Newton’s status for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals is uncertain after he missed practice on Wednesday because he aggravated a foot injury suffered in the pre-season.

So where do the Panthers go from here?

It might not be long before we know the answer to that question as well.

Three days later on Sept.15, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger suffered significant injuries.

Roethlisberger will miss the remainder of the season because of a right elbow injury that requires surgery.

Two years ago, the Steelers had the league leaders in passing yards per game, scrimmage yards per game and touchdowns catches on their roster.

Now, Roethlisberger is out, Le’Veon Bell is on the New York Jets and Antonio Brown plays for the rival New England Patriots.

At 0-2 and facing a difficult schedule the rest of the way, Pittsburgh turns to Mason Rudolph with the hope that the 2018 third-round pick can show them enough to believe he could be a franchise quarterback.

We know that Roethlisberger will miss the rest of the season.

We don’t know when, or if, he ever suits up for the Steelers again.

Meanwhile, Brees will miss at least the next six weeks with a thumb injury.

Brees has missed a grand total of three games since moving to New Orleans in 2006 and the Saints have lost all of them.

It will be up to Teddy Bridgewater to snap the skid now that he takes over as the starter.

It won’t be an easy assignment by any means.

The Saints travel to the West Coast to visit the 2-0 Seattle Seahawks in Week 3. After that, they will host the Dallas Cowboys, who should be 3-0 after they host the Miami Cheap Miami Dolphins Jerseys
on Sunday afternoon.

It wouldn’t shock anybody if New Orleans is 2-2 at the quarter mark of its schedule.

It also wouldn’t be a surprise if the Saints started 1-3.

Either way, Bridgewater could be the first quarterback since 2005 to start more than one game in a season for New Orleans.

That is, if he can stay healthy.

Jones: Eli has been nothing but supportive
Daniel Jones praises Eli Manning for supporting him after he took over the starting quarterback position.

Finally, on Tuesday, the New York Giants announced that Eli Manning has been benched in favour of rookie first-round pick Daniel Jones.

Jones becomes the sixth quarterback to take over a starting job and it’s only Week 3.

Considering the passer situations around the league, including New York in particular, it wouldn’t be a surprise if teams called the Giants to inquire about Manning’s availability.

The number of NFL starting quarterback changes over the last 25 days alone is alarming.

With 15 weeks to go, we are all but guaranteed to see more switches.

Jones, Bridgewater, Rudolph, Falk, Minshew and Brissett are all expected to start in Week 3.

Undrafted free agent Kyle Allen could also get the nod for Carolina if Newton isn’t ready to go.

As for the other 26 starting quarterbacks around the league, one goal heading into Week 3 is simple: Make sure that list doesn’t get any longer.

SIT: Kirk Cousins, QB, Vikings: That’s not a typo: Cousins’ 8.2 QBR is real. He struggled in last week’s loss to the Packers, and his 52.4% completion rate is near the bottom of the league. At some point, Minnesota’s going to need him to offer the offence more than giving 20-plus touches to RB Dalvin Cook.

START: Tom Brady, QB, Patriots: He’s thrown for at least two touchdown passes in each of the past six games against the Jets and eight of his past 10. WRs Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon are a big reason why he’s averaging 13.8 yards per completion, his best total since 2011.

SIT: Josh Gordon, WR, Patriots: Gordon has just nine targets in two games. The Patriots will continue to spread the ball around, leaving Gordon only a handful of opportunities each game. If the Pats seek to find balance and emphasize the running game against the Jets, then Gordon’s potential for production will be further limited.

START: Devonta Freeman, RB, Falcons: Off to a slow start, Freeman has averaged just 2.2 yards per carry. Along come the Colts, who are 30th in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing running backs. This could lead a big game from Freeman, especially for those using him in PPR formats.

SIT: Tarik Cohen, RB, Bears: Rookie David Montgomery is already limiting Cohen’s touches. He’ll remain the back of choice in Chicago’s passing game, but the sluggish start from QB Mitchell Trubisky makes Cohen a very difficult add to any fantasy offence at this point.

START: Marquise Brown, WR, Ravens: That he was targeted 13 times in last week’s win over the Cardinals was a sign QB Lamar Jackson doesn’t see him strictly as a deep threat. The Chiefs are 24th in fantasy points per game allowed to opposing receivers and didn’t get tested much by the Raiders in Week 2. That will change, as Brown and Jackson will face off against Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City’s potent passing attack.

SIT: Mason Rudolph, QB, Steelers: There were signs that Rudolph could be fantasy-viable after replacing Roethlisberger. Don’t get fooled into buying a breakout effort by the second-year passer on the road against a 49ers defence that has four interceptions this season.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — All that mattered to Aaron Rodgers on Sunday was that the Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys won.

That’s it.

Rodgers threw two early touchdowns and Green Bay held on for a 21-16 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

“The biggest thing is that we’re 2-0,” he said. “I know we owe a lot of that to our defence and (defensive co-ordinator) Mike Pettine and his staff and those guys for being opportunistic and making plays when they had to. But I think there’s still a lot of great potential in this offence.”

On a day when the Packers honoured late Hall of Famer Bart Starr at halftime, Rodgers put on quite a show — particularly early. Rodgers completed nine of his first 10 passes for 134 yards and two touchdowns and had a perfect 158.3 rating through the first quarter. He finished 22 of 34 for 209 yards.

Rodgers and new coach Matt LaFleur experimented with Rodgers wearing a playcall wristband in the hope that it would speed up the play-calling process and get the offence out of the huddle quicker.

“Yeah, this is probably the wordiest offence I’ve been in since Cal,” said Rodgers, who played college ball at California after transferring from Butte Community College. “I think it just helps with communication. He doesn’t have to say 12 syllables to me, and then I say 12 syllables in the huddle. It helps speed things up a little bit. But we didn’t use it a whole lot. We only used it about five or six times.”

After scoring on each of its first three possessions, Green Bay’s offence failed to muster another point. But the hot start was enough to win.

The Packers remained unbeaten under LaFleur after opening the NFL’s 100th season with a victory at rival Chicago. They also beat the Vikings (1-1) for the fifth time in the past seven games at Lambeau Field.

Minnesota’s Dalvin Cook had a career-high 154 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. It was the third-year pro’s second consecutive game with over 100 yards rushing. Cook also had 37 yards receiving in the loss.

“We’re just trying to find our rhythm,” Cook said. “It was a hostile environment. We knew what we were coming into. Tried to prepare as well as we could. You can never replicate a game. Just trying to find our rhythm. We found it, but they jumped on us pretty early.”

After throwing the ball just 10 times in the opener against Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys
, Kirk Cousins finished 14 of 32 with 230 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Cousins was picked off by Kevin King in the end zone late in the fourth quarter.

“You just can’t do that, can’t do that,” Cousins said of the interception. “It happened last week in our game against us. We talked about it all week, you just can’t do that. It’s uncharacteristic of me.”

The Vikings are 5-2-1 in last their eight meetings against Green Bay.

Rodgers and Davante Adams connected on a 39-yard completion on the Packers’ first offensive play. Rodgers found running back Jamaal Williams for a 15-yard touchdown to cap a four-play, 75-yard drive.

Adams finished with 106 yards on nine catches.

“We started off a lot faster,” Adams said. “That’s definitely what we were after this week.”

It took Green Bay’s offence all of 12 minutes to score more points (14) than it did in the season opener at Chicago (10).

After a missed field goal by Minnesota, receiver Geronimo Allison, who did not see a single pass against the Bears, gave the Packers a two-score advantage on a 12-yard strike from Rodgers.

Green Bay took over at the Vikings 33 after defensive lineman Kenny Clark sacked Cousins, forcing a fumble. Dean Lowry recovered the loose ball.

The Packers took a commanding 21-0 lead with 2 minutes to play in the first half on 2-yard run by Aaron Jones.

“We came out hot,” said Jones, who finished with 116 yards on 23 carries. “We thought we could do no wrong. We’ve just got to continue to work at it because the fourth drive, fifth drive, sixth drive, we want points on those as well.”

After rushing for 111 yards and two touchdowns in a win last week against the Falcons, Cook broke out for a 75-yard score following a missed tackle by rookie safety Darnell Savage.

“Eventually one of us was going to make a play to get this game rolling, and it was just me that made a play,” Cook said. “Whatever to get a team rolling, to get this thing going, that was the play to do it.”

Stefan Diggs scored the Vikings’ other touchdown with a 45-yard grab with 9:12 to play in the third.

“Disappointing loss today,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. “We fought hard, but we didn’t play well enough to win. We had some dumb penalties. … The interception at the end of the ballgame hurt.”

Minnesota had eight penalties for 100 yards.

INJURIES

Packers: S Raven Greene was carted off the field with an ankle injury following the first play of the second half. He did not return.

STARR CELEBRATION

The Wholesale Green Bay Packers Jerseys
honoured Starr during a celebration that included a video tribute, words from Starr’s wife, Cherry, and an appearance by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Starr, who died in May at 85, was the MVP of the first two Super Bowls and won the league MVP award in 1966 with the Packers. Starr has the highest post-season passer rating (104.8) of any QB in NFL history and a post-season record of 9-1. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Packers Hall of Fame in 1977.

PHOENIX — A bullpen blowup put the Cheap Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys
in a tough spot Tuesday night.

A next-day bounce back keeps their slim NL wild-card hopes alive.

Mike Leake worked effectively through traffic into the seventh inning, Domingo Leyba had two RBIs and the Diamondbacks rebounded from an ugly loss to beat the Wholesale Miami Marlins Jerseys
5-4 on Wednesday.

“After a really tough night last night where you’re kind of ground down, the guys came out today, quick turnaround, and executed the game plan and won a baseball game,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.

Arizona had dropped to 5 1/2 games back in the NL wild-card race after a bullpen blowup led to a 12-6 loss to Miami Tuesday night.

The Wholesale Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys
responded by jumping on Sandy Alcantara (5-14) early to keep their slim playoff chances alive with nine games to go.

Abraham Almonte hit his first career leadoff home run and Christian Walker added a solo shot for Arizona.

Leake (12-11) gave up solo homers to Austin Dean and Starlin Castro, but limited the rest of the damage in 6 2/3 innings. Archie Bradley retired the final four batters for his 15th save.

“Pretty good game in general. Back and forth,” Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. “We didn’t get enough big hits to get over the hump today.”

The Marlins (53-99) are one defeat from the third 100-loss season in team history, the first since 2012.

Leake allowed four earned runs in 26 innings over previous four starts, but the Cheap Miami Marlins Jerseys
hit him hard early.

Marlin hit his 20th homer in the second inning and Harold Ramirez followed with a run-scoring single. Dean hit a solo homer in the fourth.

Leake gave up three runs on eight hits and struck out four.

“The home runs are kind of chance pitches that are not quite getting where they’re supposed to,” Leake said.

Alcantara allowed one run over seven innings his last start, against San Francisco. He wasn’t nearly as effective against the Diamondbacks, who scored four runs off the right-hander in the first three innings.

Alcantara left a 1-2 pitch up and over the plate in the first inning to Almonte, who sent it into the pool deck in right-centre.

Leyba hit run-scoring triple and scored on Jerrod Dyson’s single in the second inning, then drove in another run in the fourth on a groundout. Walker’s 26th homer put Arizona up 5-3 in the sixth.

Alcantara allowed five runs — four earned — on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings.

“I want to go as deep as I can. Sometimes that doesn’t happen,” Alacantara said. “Don’t want to have a bad day, but today was not a bad day. I want to finish strong. I have two starts left. Working hard to get better every time.”

INTERFERENCE QUESTION

Arizona catcher Alex Avila was called for catcher’s interference on a swing by Ramirez in the eighth inning, prompting a visit to the umpire by Lovullo.

The reason? Avila thought the ball was already in his glove when Ramirez made contact. Under baseball rules, catcher’s interference can’t be called if the catcher already has the ball in his glove.

Lovullo talked over the bang-bang play with plate umpire Brian Knight and the umpires gathered, but ultimately decided Ramirez struck Avila’s glove just before he caught it.

“I just wanted them to get together because Al felt strongly it was in his glove,” Lovullo said. “The umpires thought it was approaching. I haven’t seen the play, but was told the umpires got it right.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Marlins: C Jorge Alfaro was back in the lineup after being hit on his non-throwing hand by a bat and leaving Tuesday’s game in the second inning.

Diamondbacks: CF Ketel Marte was out of the lineup and had a precautionary MRI after leaving Tuesday’s game in the fifth inning with back stiffness. He is expected to get a CT scan next and his status for the upcoming series at San Diego is still up in the air. … SS Nick Ahmed was out for the second straight due to an injured finger on his throwing hand suffered in Monday’s game.

MINNEAPOLIS — As the Cheap Minnesota Twins Jerseys move closer to a post-season berth, José Berríos’ confidence grows.

Berríos pitched into the eighth inning to win his second straight start, Mitch Garver hit a go-ahead double and the Twins rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-3 Monday night.

“Confidence is real, and every single guy here needs it to succeed to be their best self and their best version of them on the field,” Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said. “José certainly had it.”

Seeking their first AL Central title since 2010, the Twins opened a five-game lead over second-place Cleveland. At 92-58 with 12 games left, Minnesota is assured of its best record since finishing 94-68 in 2010.

Given an extra day of rest between starts, Berríos (13-8) allowed two runs and five hits in 7 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts and two walks. He was rewarded with a standing ovation when he was removed.

“Every outing I’m feeling better and better,” Berríos said through a translator. “My arm was feeling great today.”

Berríos’ 188 1/3 innings are four shy of his career high, set last year. The two-time All-Star has changed his postgame routine in order to stay fresher between starts.

He pitched into the eighth inning for just the fifth time this season.

Tyler Duffey finished the eighth, and Sergio Romo allowed Eloy Jiménez’s homer leading off the ninth before getting an out. Taylor Rogers needed just eight pitches to finish a six-hitter for his 27th save in 33 chances.

Following a weekend series against the Indians, Minnesota started a final stretch against teams with losing records: the White Sox, Kansas City and worst-in-the-majors Detroit.

White Sox starter Reynaldo López gave up five runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.

“I was feeling good today,” López said through a translator. “I missed quite a bit with first-pitch strikes, and that got me into some trouble.”

José Abreu’s sacrifice fly in the first and James McCann’s homer in the second gave Chicago a 2-0 lead, but the Twins tied the score in the bottom half on Jorge Polanco’s sacrifice fly and Nelson Cruz’s RBI single.

After Garver put the Twins ahead for good, Luis Arraez hit a cue shot off the end of his bat that curved past third baseman Yoán Moncada for a two-run single in the sixth. Moncada appeared to be in position to make a play before the ball spun to his left and into the outfield.

“When he hit that ball, I don’t think anybody realized it was going to do that, us included,” Baldelli said. “It was just a very unusual ball off the bat.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Twins: 1B Marwin Gonzalez went 1 for 4 in his return from an abdominal injury that had sidelined him since Aug. 27. … INF Ehire Adrianza, who strained his right oblique on Thursday, hopes to start taking swings this weekend and remains optimistic he may play again during the regular season is over. … RF Max Kepler was out of the lineup for the second straight game with left shoulder soreness. … 1B C.J. Cron might need some time off to rest his injured right thumb, according to Baldelli.

UP NEXT

White Sox RHP Lucas Giolito was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday because of a mild lat strain and will miss the rest of the season. LHP Ross Detwiler (2-5) will start against LHP Martin Pérez (10-7). A first-time All-Star, Giolito finished 14-9 with a 3.41 ERA. “He created a great foundation for himself going forward to be a very important part of a good team going forward,” Chicago general manager Rick Hahn said.

Wholesale Detroit Tigers Jerseys

DETROIT — There was only one fitting way for a four-game series between the major leagues’ worst teams to end — with no one winning.

In the first series in American League history between teams 50 or more games under .500, the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Monday to earn a split.

“That was a nice win,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “We got an early lead against a pretty good pitcher and we held on.”

Detroit (45-104) has a 3 1/2 game “lead” over Baltimore (49-101) for the top pick in June’s amateur draft, which goes to the club with the lowest winning percentage this season.

Detroit needs to win one of its final six games at Comerica Park to avoid breaking the major league record of 59 home losses, set by the 1939 St. Louis Browns.

Tyler Alexander (1-3), a 24-year-old left-hander forced into the rotation by a doubleheader last week, got his first big league win. Before a crowd announced at 14,142, he allowed one run and four hits in six innings during his first major league start since Aug. 7.

“Tyler has pitched pretty well for us, both as a starter and a reliever, and he really pulled everything together,” Gardenhire said.

Joe Jiménez retired the first two batters in the ninth before the Orioles loaded the bases on three singles. Trey Mancini, who hit his third homer of the series in the sixth inning, struck out on three pitches.

“That was terrible,” Mancini said. “I felt really good about my series, and then I end it by chasing two bad pitches in a key situation. I was clearly trying to do too much.”

John Means (10-11) gave up five runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings.

“They were aggressive, and they had a pretty good game plan,” he said. “I was in attack mode, but they were able to do damage.”

Detroit led 2-0 after its first two batters. Victor Reyes tripled over centre fielder Austin Hays, and Jordy Mercer hit the next pitch into the Baltimore bullpen in left-centre for his ninth homer. Reyes made it 4-0 with a two-out, two-run double in the fifth, and Dawel Lugo hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth.

“I guess I’m a brilliant manager, because I got our two hottest hitters — Victor and Jordy — up in big situations,” Gardenhire said. “I wish I had been doing that all season.”

Baltimore struggled against Alexander, who pitched the first five innings in under an hour.

“He threw the ball really well, but we made it easy for him,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said. “We weren’t getting him deep into counts.”

Jonathan Villar led off the seventh with a triple off José Cisnero and scored on Hays’ single.

Buck Farmer, dealing with a racing heartbeat, threw two fastballs up and in to Renato Núñez in the eighth inning, hitting him on a hand on the second one.

Núñez yelled at Farmer in anger before going to first base for treatment from the training staff. Orioles reliever then hit Jeimer Candelario with the first pitch of the Tigers eighth, leading plate umpire Roberto Ortiz to warn both benches.

“That was absurd,” Gardenhire said. “Buck had to come out of the game because of his heart rate, and he certainly wasn’t trying to hit anyone with two out and two strikes. … Then they hit our guy, which was silly, and the umpire warned the dugouts, which was silly.”

RARE FEAT

Orioles LF Stevie Wilkerson and RF Anthony Santander recorded an assist on the same play in the fifth inning. Reyes overran second on his two-run double, hoping to draw a throw that would ensure a second run scored. Wilkerson’s throw was on target, but Reyes stayed in the rundown long enough that Santander ended up coming in from right to take part in a 7-6-3-5-9-3-4 putout.

“I wanted to keep going so they would throw and make sure we got two runs,” Reyes said, through an interpreter. “I stayed alive for a while – I’ve been working hard on my baserunning.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Orioles: DH Mark Trumbo was a late scratch from the Baltimore lineup because of a trapezius strain. . X-rays on Núñez’s hand were negative.

Tigers: DH Miguel Cabrera returned to the lineup after a flareup in his right knee forced him to leave Saturday’s game early and sit out on Sunday. . Farmer’s heart was checked after he left the game, but Gardenhire said he was fine.

UP NEXT

Orioles: Baltimore starts a three-game series Tuesday against visiting Toronto, which starts RHP Trent Thornton (5-9, 5.04).

Tigers: Detroit heads across Lake Erie for three games against the Indians, who are 15-1 against the Tigers this season. With Matthew Boyd away from the team due to a family emergency, Detroit will use its bullpen Tuesday against RHP Adam Plutko (6-4).
