s hes grown plenty since that opener.Every Antworten

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- When the Los Angeles Rams desperately needed a big play in the final minute of their last two games, the defense delivered it.That knack has the Rams (2-1) off to their best start in the decade despite a litany of concerns about everything from scoring to penalties.The sign of a good defense is making big plays, Rams safety T.J. McDonald said. Whenever you can come up with a big tackle or a turnover, youve got to do it. You keep pressing, and the good teams find a way to do it.Los Angeles could need a few more game-changing plays to prosper in its visit to Arizona (1-2) on Sunday for its third NFC West game already this season.The Rams have the NFLs least productive offense through three games after finishing last season at the bottom of the league. Theyve also hurt themselves repeatedly with penalties, ranking among the leagues most frequent offenders with 27 flags for 249 yards.Sure, Los Angeles piled up points last weekend in its 37-32 win over the Buccaneers after managing just nine points in its first two games combined. But the defense was responsible for a big chunk of that outburst: Mark Barrons first-half interception set up one short TD drive, and defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks returned a fumble 77 yards for another score.And when Jameis Winston drove the Bucs into scoring position in the final seconds, Robert Quinn ended the game by chasing down the star quarterback from behind at the Los Angeles 5.A week earlier, middle linebacker Alec Ogletree made the biggest play by recovering a fumble by Seattles Christine Michael in the final minute, killing the Seahawks last drive and securing a win in Los Angeles homecoming game.Rams coach Jeff Fisher would prefer to get some wins that dont come down the final seconds.You take the wins however you can, he said. In a perfect world, youd like to think you dont need to make that play at the end. But thats something you can hang your hat on, and you can always go back and say `Hey, you made plays at the end, so if it comes up again, just go do it. Do what youve done before.Ogletree has been all over the field for the Rams in his first four games as the replacement for franchise tackling leader James Laurinaitis, who signed a free agent contract with New Orleans in March. While he approves of the defenses knack for big plays, Ogletree shares Fishers desire to make things a bit simpler.We gave up almost 400 yards passing last week, Ogletree said of the Bucs 389 yards through the air. Theres a lot of work to do. It feels good to win, but we know we created a lot of mistakes out there and gave them a lot of opportunities.Ogletree is headed back to the stadium where his 2015 season ended with a broken leg in the Rams fourth game of the year. He has recovered to become a key component of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams scheme.Im not going to go out there thinking, `Oh man, this is where I got hurt, and this is how my season ended last year, Ogletree said. It ended because it ended. I got hurt, and that was the end of it. Its a new year. Im definitely looking forward to going back out there and completing the whole game.---AP NFL websites: and Cheap Matthias Ginter Jersey . After the whistle, Thornton skated the length of the ice, pulled Orpik to the ice from behind and punched him in the face several times.

It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. Wholesale Germany Jerseys .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. Cheap Mario Gomez Jersey . Pirlo limped out of Sundays 1-0 win over Udinese after just 13 minutes. Juventus says Pirlo underwent tests on Monday which revealed he has "a second-degree lesion to the collateral medial ligament in his right knee. FRISCO, Texas -- Ezekiel Elliott called himself average after the New York Giants held him to less than 3 yards per carry in a loss in his NFL debut with Dallas.The rookie running back hasnt had to describe himself that way since the 20-19 loss in Week 1. The Cowboys havent lost either.It was definitely frustrating because it was not how I imagined it, said Elliott, who gets another shot at the Giants as Dallas (11-1) chases a franchise-record 12th straight win and the NFC East title Sunday night. But I think it definitely helped shape me into the player I am today and put a chip on my shoulder early this season to go out there and get things right.Fellow rookie Dak Prescott also debuted as the replacement for the injured Tony Romo. He left an impression with the Giants (8-4) despite the loss , which ended when the clock ran out with Dallas scrambling to get into position for a field goal after receiver Terrance Williams didnt get out of bounds on a completion.Three months later, New York doesnt exactly seem surprised that Prescott has led the Cowboys to a comfortable division lead with a strong chance to secure home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.After admittedly focusing on Elliott and forcing a new quarterback to beat them, the Giants realize it might not be quite as easy to keep Elliott somewhere around the season low of 51 yards he had in the first meeting, while preventing big plays downfield from Prescott.You saw all of those tools in the beginning, but I feel like he has hit his stride, he understands what defenses are doing, linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. Maybe he didnt show that in Week 1. Now you are seeing him step into the mold and take full control of this offense.The Giants will be without pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul, who could miss the rest of the season following surgery for a sports hernia . But the Cowboys dont expect the approach to change. New York will try to force throws underneath while putting pressure on Prescott.Theyve had good rushers there for 60 years, Dallas coach Jason Garrett saaid.dddddddddddd And they place a premium on that. They always have, and they got a lot of guys. They have guys that can rush outside with those big guys pushing the pocket. So its the starters, its the backup guys. Theyve always kind of come at you in waves.Of course, the Giants will still have their eyes on Elliott, the NFLs leading rusher with 1,285 yards.You really dont change much week to week, no matter the opponent, defensive tackle Damon Harrison said. It is still the same thing for the defensive line: stop the run, set the edge, build the wall. But when you play a back like Ezekiel, then you have to do some minor tweaks in your assignments.Prescott started his NFL-record streak of 176 pass attempts without an interception to begin a career against the Giants, throwing 45 times in the opener, but with just one completion of more than 17 yards.And after finding Dez Bryant easily in his surprisingly strong preseason, Prescott targeted the star receiver five times compared to 26 combined for tight end Jason Witten and slot receiver Cole Beasley. Witten and Beasley were the leading receivers, both averaging less than 10 yards per catch.The Cowboys considered those numbers a product of the game plan, and one of Prescotts strengths has been letting the defense dictate where his throws go. The 23-year-old believes hes grown plenty since that opener.Every aspect of my game, knowledge, footwork, seeing the defense, just everything, said Prescott, who has 19 touchdowns with just two interceptions. Eleven games later or whatever it is, just to be on the better side and knowing how close we were to winning that game. I think the loss was good for us at the time, so just to be able to come back and I guess revenge that loss, it will be fun.Ditto for Elliott.---For more NFL coverage: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Jerseys From China ' ' '
