(SportsNetwork. [url=]Wholesale NCAA Jerseys Authentic[/url] .com) - At last, the New York Jets Antworten

(SportsNetwork. Wholesale NCAA Jerseys Authentic .com) - At last, the New York Jets can be picked on someone sharing a similarly mediocre win-loss size. The Tennessee Titans will host the visiting Jets this weekend in the NFLs lone Week 15 battle of 2-11 teams, and, as unlikely as it may sound, matchups actually dictate that Rex Ryan and Co. could be in for a rare bout with success. New York is second in the league with an average per-week rate of 149.7 rushing yards, which presumably would mean prosperity against the Titans, whose average of 141.5 rush yards allowed is worst among the leagues 32 teams. That number rises to 173.0 when only counting Tennessees six home games, which goes a long way toward explaining the teams lowly 1-5 home record. Tennessee, in fact, has lost seven games in a row by an average of 15 points, which is the franchises longest drought since the Houston Oilers dropped 11 consecutive games in 1994. Last week, the Titans were brutalized, 36-7, by the Jets fellow northern New Jersey swamp-dwellers, the New York Giants. The Giants racked up 402 total yards to Tennessees 207, and the Titans converted two of 13 third downs, to the predictable post-game chagrin of their players and coaches. Its disappointing, tight end Delanie Walker said. Weve only won two games, and were still playing the same way. We always say were going to change, and nothing changes. Well, almost nothing. The arrival of the Jets will also signal the return of former starting quarterback Jake Locker, whos all but guaranteed that role this weekend thanks to the doubtful status of recent incumbent Zach Mettenberger - who re- dinged a sprained shoulder when he was sacked for a fifth time last week. Mettenberger had an 86.7 passer rating in six starts, and while Tennessee coach Ken Whisenhunt insisted he wouldnt rule the youngster out until I know for sure he cant go, he did assess the scenario for Locker, whose 71.1 passer rating is better than just one NFL starter - New Yorks Geno Smith. Locker was 9-of-11 for 81 yards and an interception as a reliever against the Giants. Its an opportunity to play. Jake wants that, Whisenhunt said. (He just needs to) prepare the best he can and do the best job he can. I think thats the way hell look at it. Hes a good pro. Hes been in a tough situation, coming in like that. He did some good things (Sunday). He moved around in the pocket well, ran with the ball a couple of times. On the one interception, he was trying to make a play at the end of the game. Meanwhile, the Jets have lost nine straight games in which the aforementioned Smith has started, including a 30-24 overtime decision last week in Minnesota, in which Smiths first pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. He finished with 18 completions in 29 attempts for 254 yards. In his second year as a pro, his touchdown-to-interception ratio of 0.67 remains second-worst in the NFL, but that didnt stop him this week from telling New Yorks Newsday publication that hed shown flashes of being a Pro Bowl quarterback. I feel like I have the tools and I have what it takes to be that, but, obviously, it takes some consistency and Ive been very inconsistent in my two years here. With that being said, Ill be more of the guy you see doing well than the guy who struggles at times. It may not help his cause this week that his favorite new target - in-season trade acquisition Percy Harvin - is doubtful with an ankle injury suffered against the Vikings. On the other side, defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson is questionable after he missed last weeks game with a toe injury. Among the Jets who do figure to play, the game marks a return to old stomping grounds for running back Chris Johnson, who signed with New York as a free agent after spending his first six NFL years with the Titans. He ran for 7,965 yards, including 2,006 in 2009, and 50 touchdowns with Tennessee, placing him third in franchise history in both categories. In 13 games with New York, hes run for 558 yards and is averaging 4.5 yards per rush. Going to the visitors locking room, its going to be kind of weird, he said. Its definitely harder than what I expected, but its a situation where a lot of times stuff is out of your hands that you cant control, so I just try to take advantage of every opportunity I get. Johnsons lone 100-yard game of the season came in Week 13 against Miami, when he went for 105 on 17 carries. Last week against Minnesota, he had 16 carries for 53 yards. If you give him an opportunity to hit the home run, he can do it, Tennessee defensive back Michael Griffin said. We have our work cut out for us. Hes going to be geared up and ready to play and looking to prove to us and the organization it was mistake to let him go. WHAT TO WATCH FOR A Day in McCourty Take Smiths lingering tendency to throw the ball to the wrong team and add in the fact that hell probably be without his favorite receiving option - Harvin - and it could spell trouble. Tennessee cornerback Jason McCourty has three interceptions, two forced fumbles and 10 pass deflections through 13 games, often while blanketing the opposing teams best receiver. Return to Glory? Conversely, the presumed return of Locker to the Titans starting quarterback position gives the fourth-year pro - a No. 8 overall draft selection in 2011 - a chance to be the latest passer to victimize the Jets faulty secondary. New York has allowed 29 passing touchdowns in 14 games (second-worst in the league) and is 29th in the league when it comes to interceptions. OVERALL ANALYSIS The Jets havent gotten to 2-11 without finding ways to lose games that they presumably ought to win. And while they may have indeed found their counterpart in mediocrity against the Titans, the reality remains that theyre a road team with a 0-6 record on the road. Though it would hardly be a surprise to see them piece together a victory, instead expect a battle of field goals that goes late to the home side. Sports Network predicted outcome: Titans 13, Jets 9 Discount NCAA Jerseys . -- Canada played to expectation up until halftime. Cheap NCAA Jerseys Online . Beanballs were the theme Friday night as the Red Sox and Rays had another AL East rumble, with Boston earning a 3-2 victory on A. .

The major league leader with 40 homers during the regular season, Cruz added an RBI single to his early blast off Max Scherzer. TORONTO -- Its all about numbers for the Toronto Blue Jays these days. Good and bad. Their hopes of reaching baseballs post-season are alive mathematically by the thinnest of margins. Right-hander Drew Hutchison, however, led the way on Wednesday when he equalled his career best with 10 strikeouts in an 11-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs. It was the fourth win in a row for the Blue Jays (76-69) and the sixth straight loss for the Cubs (64-82). In the three-game series sweep Toronto outscored Chicago 28-3. It was the third solid start for the Blue Jays in the series. Rookie right-hander Marcus Stroman pitched his first career shutout in an 8-0 win on Monday and left-hander Mark Buehrle held the Cubs to two runs over seven innings in the 9-2 win on Tuesday. "Theyve really picked it up, too," manager John Gibbons said. "Even coming into the season, that was really the question mark of the team, how was the rotation going to hold up. Of course, 1/8Brandon 3/8 Morrow went down but those other guys have been steady for pretty much the whole year. We added a guy here and there to make a spot start to give them a little breather but theyre pitching a lot better than I expected if you want to know the truth. "Thats important. What they do is most of them give you a shot every time out there. When were pitching good, were capable of scoring a lot of runs every night, and when we play good defence, we win." Hutchison (10-11) allowed four hits and one run, on a homer by Jorge Soler, over 6 1/3 innings. His other 10 strikeout game was July 1 against the Milwaukee Brewers, also at Rogers Centre. "My command has been good," Hutchison said. "Ive been commanding the baseball with all three of my pitches. My slider has been good to both sides of the plate lately. I think thats been a big reason why Ive pitched well and my fastball command has been (good). Try to continue to throw the way I am now and give us a chance every time I go out." The 24-year-old held the Cubs to two doubles and a walk in the first six innings. But in the seventh, Soler hit his fourth homer of the season with one out for the Cubs. Welington Castillo followed with a double and kept going to third on an error by centre fielder Anthony Gose. Left-hander Brett Cecil replaced Hutchison and finished the inning with a strikeout and a fly out. "Its been going well lately," Hutchison said. "I felt like I pitched six really good innings and maybe the wait there hurt a little bit coming out for the seventh. But thats always a good thing when you wait that long. Falling behind those guys was frustrating but overall I thought it was a good outing." The Blue Jays added five runs in the home seventh inning against Cubs relievers Wesley Wright and Kyuji Fujikawa. Edwin Encarnacion and Dioner Navarro each had two-run singles in the inning and Danny Valencia drove in the other run with a single to give him his second RBI on the game. Dalton Pompey, of Mississauga, Ont., had his first big-league RBI in the two-run eighth when he grounded out as a pinch-hitter. Cheap Basketball NCAA Jerseys. "I was nervous, Im not going to lie," said Pompey who was called up for September from triple-A Buffalo. "My arm was shaking before I went up to bat and I just had to collect myself, take a deep breath and try to stick with my approach, it was hard. Even the first pitch, I didnt really see it. Just had to collect myself, try to put the ball in play and good things happen." Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks (6-2) allowed six hits and four runs in 5 2/3 innings for his first loss since July 27. "We got into a little trouble there and werent able to dig ourselves out," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "They kept chipping away, they kept swinging the bats, they kept doing things to keep their offence going, they kept the line moving. They took advantage of miscues. Kyle probably deserved a better fate." The Cubs had a chance to take the lead in the first inning after Javier Baez walked with one out. Luis Valbuena followed with a double to right centre. Baez continued around third before being held up. He was thrown out trying to return to third by Navarro after the catcher had taken the relay throw home from second baseman Ryan Goins. Hutchison struck out Soler to end the inning. That started a run of 15 consecutive batters retired by Hutchison until Chris Coghlan doubled to centre with two out in the sixth. Hutchison responded by striking out Baez. The Blue Jays scored a run in the third on a double by Kevin Pillar who slid home safely on a sacrifice fly to left by Gose. Pillar had moved to third on a groundout to first by Goins. The Blue Jays took a 4-0 lead in the sixth. Gose singled to left and then came around to score on a bloop single by Jose Reyes when the right fielder, Soler, mishandled the ball for an error. Reyes took third on a fly out to right by Jose Bautista, whose 13-game hit streak ended, and scored when Adam Lind sliced a single to left. Navarro followed with a walk and Valencia doubled to centre to score Lind. "I felt really good," Hendricks said. "That was one of my best outings, from the start, that Ive had all year. It was one of those innings where I made a lot of good pitches, probably should have gotten out of it. If you fall behind on those guys, theyre going to make you pay. Sometimes theres nothing you can do." Notes: Announced attendance at Rogers Centre was 19,411. àThe Blue Jays are considering starting LHP Mark Buehrle on Sunday to give RHP Marcus Stroman an extra day off after he pitched his first career shutout on Tuesday against the Cubs. Buehrle is 18 innings short of pitching at least 200 innings in a season for the 14th straight year. àThe Blue Jays have Thursday off before completing the home stand with a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. LHP J.A. Happ (9-9, 4.44 E.R.A.) will start the opener on Friday against RHP Nathan Karns, who is making his first start of the season in the majors. ' ' '
