is inner Namath. -- Brown25. Syracuse Orange: Happy, Pharrell Williams (2013)Wait. Thats not the first word that pops in your he Antworten

DETROIT -- Jay Gruden would like to see his defense produce more turnovers. As long as that unit remains stingy about giving up points, the Washington Redskins coach isnt going to fret over the lack of takeaways.The Redskins (4-2) forced only one turnover over the last two games but they havent allowed an offensive touchdown over the last seven quarters.That allowed them to extend their winning streak to four games.They will be seeking their first five-game streak since 2012 when they play at Detroit on Sunday.Its been good, Gruden said of his defense. The first two victories, we got a lot of takeaways and gave up a lot of yards. The last two weeks, we havent given up a lot of yards but we havent gotten any takeaways.Imagine what we could do if we dont give up a lot of yards and we get takeaways. Wed be pretty good. But Im happy with the way theyre playing. Were not giving up big plays, momentum-swinging type plays.Many Redskins fans werent happy with the play of quarterback Kirk Cousins during the first two games. The catcalls have quieted somewhat during the winning streak, in which Cousins has thrown eight touchdowns and three interceptions.One of those turnovers was returned for a touchdown by Philadelphia last Sunday but the Redskins still emerged with a 27-20 victory.Washington achieved offensive balance in that game, rolling up 493 total yards, and hope that trend continues. Matt Jones led three running backs who combined for 231 rushing yards with a career-high 135 on 16 carries.If we can put up 500 yards of offense 16 times, wed be a pretty good offense, said Cousins, the former Michigan State star who will be playing in his home state for the first time as a pro.Theres always going to be plays where you feel like you could have had 600 yards of offense or 700 yards of offense, but we did some good things. We ran the ball well and made the plays we had to make but were always going to go back and say, How can we be better?The Redskins can get off to a 3-0 start on the road for the first time since 1999 with a win. Theyre also shooting for their sixth straight road victory, something they havent done since 1991.They hope tight end Jordan Reed can return after missing the Eagles game with a concussion.Detroit (3-3), which will complete a stretch of three home games, has won two straight on late field goals by Matt Prater.Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who will be playing in his 100th career game, has thrown seven touchdown passes over the last two games while completing 75 percent of his passes without an interception.Staffords 14 touchdown passes tie him for third place in the league but he shrugs off praise over his recent outings.Its the same way I feel when people say Im terrible and Im the reason were losing; I dont pay too much attention to it, he said. Were winning games because we have talented players on this team.On the offensive side of the ball, my job is just to get the ball in their hands and let them go. Theyve been doing that the last couple of weeks.The Lions required fourth-quarter comebacks in all of their victories, which Stafford considers a mental edge.Were a tested team, he said. We havent come out on the right end of all those, like we wish we could have, but thats what the NFL is all about. Games come down to the fourth quarter a majority of the time.No question wed like to be up 21 in the fourth quarter of every game but it doesnt happen that way. There are evenly-matched teams in this league and youve got to go out there and make the plays to win the game.Detroit hopes that its No. 1 running back, Theo Riddick, will return this week after missing the 31-28 victory over Los Angeles last Sunday with an ankle injury.The teams havent played since 2013, when the Lions pulled out a 27-20 victory. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys . The head of USA Boxing came out swinging Tuesday with an open letter to Tyson -- a former Olympic hopeful himself -- that accuses the former heavyweight champion of trying to poach fighters who might be candidates for the U. NFL Jerseys Cheap Store . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game. . Walcott is available for Saturdays home match against Southampton as Arsenal looks to extend its two-point lead at the top of the Premier League. The Gunners are currently the second highest scorers in the league but Wenger insists Walcott will add something extra to his team. Cheap NFL Jerseys China . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. The Way-Too-Early Top 25 rankings for next season in college basketball have been updated, and now that rosters are beginning to crystallize, its time to get familiar with each team. Weve already touched on the incoming freshmen to know, the future stars of reality TV and the top NBA prospect. Some learn best through music, so which songs go best with each team??1. Duke Blue Devils: Kids, MGMT (2008)Coach Mike Krzyzewski welcomes the nations No. 2 recruiting class to Durham, a group that includes No. 1 overall prospect Harry Giles, two other top-10 prospects and four of the top 20. The freshmen, especially point guard?Frank Jackson, will be relied on right away. If the Blue Devils can effectively blend youth with returning talent they will be crawling on their knees toward another national title. -- Sam Strong2. Villanova Wildcats: What We Do, Freeway, ft. Jay Z and Beanie Sigel (2003)While Philly native Freeway spits gritty bars about busted speakers and broken AC units, detailing his life of crime and the desperation that fueled it, producer Just Blazes soul-sampling beat bubbles up like champagne. The first jam of Freeways debut album is both an ode to the grind and a celebration of its rewards. Villanova -- a team haunted by first-weekend tournament failures before it stormed to the national title -- can surely relate. -- Eamonn Brennan3. Kentucky Wildcats: Sorry, Beyoncé?(2016)Two reasons to pick this song. First, the Kentucky fan base, also known as Big Blue Nation, swarms after naysayers just like Beyonces legion of fans known as the Beyhive. Just try to say something bad about BBN. We dare you. Second, John Calipari has an unapologetic style, and hes not changing anytime soon. If any team personifies the line, middle fingers up, put them hands high, it would be the Wildcats. -- C.L. Brown4. Kansas Jayhawks: Triumph, Wu Tang Clan (1997)Its a braggadocios ode to extravagance and success. And its perfect for a Kansas team that will fight for its 13th consecutive Big 12 title in 2016-17, a feat that would match UCLAs record established in the 1960s and 70s. Yes, the Jayhawks lost Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden Jr., but the arrival of elite recruit Josh Jackson, the No. 1 prospect on Chad Fords 2017 board, and the anchors (Devonte Graham and Frank Mason III) will give Bill Self the personnel to maintain their dominance of the Big 12. -- Myron Medcalf5. Virginia Cavaliers: Rags to Riches, Tony Bennett (1953)We had to pick a Tony Bennett song, right? And whats more appropriate for the Cavaliers, who have gone from irrelevant in the ACC to at or near the top of the heap for three years in a row now? Bennett has rebuilt Virginia into a national powerhouse but this season more than a few folks will wonder if he can keep the riches in place, having lost a senior class, anchored by Malcolm Brogdon, that has guided the turnaround. -- Dana ONeil6. North Carolina Tar Heels: Ill Stay Around, Willie Nelson (1967)Roy Williams, North Carolinas 65-year-old coach, wants to make one thing very clear: He isnt retiring, at least not anytime soon. Williams might not follow through on Willie Nelsons promise to stay around till its over, but so far hes making good on the call me stubborn, but Ill never give in part. Williams response when he caught wind of a rumor that he was preparing to retire in the middle of last season? You have no frickin idea what youre talking about. -- Strong7. Oregon Ducks: Lumberjack, Johnny Cash (1960)A song about a man who lived on a farm out in Iowa before he heard the Oregon timber callin me might as well be about coach Dana Altman, who spent 16 years coaching at Creighton in Omaha, Nebraska, before timber-derived resources at Nike CEO Phil Knights alma mater lured him to the Northwest. Unlike Cashs protagonist, Altmans move -- which just produced a Pac-12 title sweep and a No. 1 seed -- has been an unambiguous success. -- Brennan8. Wisconsin Badgers: All the Way Up (Remix), Fat Joe and Remy Ma ft. Jay Z (2016)When Nigel Hayes withdrew his name from the NBA draft, it kept the Badgers entire starting roster intact, and their top nine scorers from last season return. Hayes and fellow senior Bronson Koenig are poised to contend for a third Final Four appearance. How high is high enough? Till we eye-and-eye with the higher ups. -- Brown9. Xavier Musketeers: The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Gordon Lightfoot (1976)Hopefully the Gordon Lightfoot folk song doesnt ring true for the Musketeers. They need their Edmond to avoid the gales of November. And December, January, February and March. After being done in by a bad knee two seasons ago and a frightening on-court fall in December, the baby-faced Edmond Sumner was sensational last season, averaging 11 points. Hes a big part of the equation -- and expectations -- for Xavier this season. -- ONeil10. Michigan State Spartans: Un-Break My Heart, Toni Braxton (1996)Its the perfect ballad for a talented Michigan State squad that must move forward without its Valentine ... Denzel Valentine. This is a Spartans group that should compete for the Big Ten championship and more. Eron Harris is back. The squad will also add a pair of talented recruits in Miles Bridges and Josh Langford. But Valentine was a special player for this program. No matter what the Spartans achieve next season, theyll probably miss their former star and leader. -- Medcalf11. Indiana Hoosiers: Look At Me Now, Chris Brown ft. Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne (2011)Indiana coach Tom Crean sat squarely on the hot seat going into last season, and he knew it. Instead of allowing his detractors to get their wish, Crean and the Hoosiers shook off an ugly 5-3 start to the season and marched into the Sweet 16, where they fell to North Carolina. Now, Crean returns proven scorer James Blackmon Jr., talented big man Thomas Bryant and explosive guard?OG Anunoby. So yes, as Chris Brown foretold, Crean dont see how you can hate from outside of the club Look at him now, hes (still) getting paper. -- Strong12. Arizona Wildcats: True Love Waits, Radiohead (2001)Radioheads most pined-after, bootlegged and illegally shared track was first played live in 1995, about a year before Arizonas lone national championship under former coach Lute Olson. After some down seasons, Sean Miller has since returned the program to Olsons heights, but despite his success he is still waiting for his first trip to the Final Four. (In 2016, Radiohead finally released an album cut of True Love Waits. Keep the faith.) -- Brennan13. Louuisville Cardinals: Lets Talk About Sex, Salt-n-Pepa (1991)Lets face it.dddddddddddd What else do people want to talk about when it comes to the Cardinals lately? Their great defense? No, that ship sailed amid the sordid scandal that broke last year about strippers and sex and players and dorm rooms. The salacious details painted in a book penned by a former escort cost Louisville its postseason a year ago and will hang over the Cards until the NCAA eventually weighs in with the penalties. -- ONeil14. Purdue Boilermakers: Shake It Off, Taylor Swift (2014)Last year, Purdues season ended with a heartbreaking loss to 12-seed Arkansas-Little Rock in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. That loss followed a season of inconsistency that concluded with the departure of center A.J. Hammons. But the Boilermakers should listen to Taylor Swift and Shake It Off.?Caleb Swanigan and Vince Edwards are back. Isaac Haas is a monster inside. Spike Albrecht?will join the program next season, too. If Purdue reaches its potential, Boilermakers fans will soon forget last seasons embarrassing finish. -- Medcalf15. West Virginia Mountaineers: No Problem, Chance the Rapper ft. 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne (2016)Over the last two seasons, the Mountaineers have led the nation in defensive turnover percentage, and their Press Virginia style isnt letting up anytime soon. Although forward Devin Williams departure left them thin in the frontcourt, the strength of Bob Huggins team will be its backcourt. As the song proclaims, You dont want zero problems, big fella. -- Brown16. Gonzaga Bulldogs: (Its a) Departure, The Long Winters (2006)Its familiar, but not too familiar, The Long Winters John Roderick, a Seattle native, sings, before an immediate second-guess: But not too not familiar. Its a fair enough way to describe the 2016-17 Bulldogs, who lost Domantas Sabonis and Kyle Wiltjer, the beating heart of their Elite Eight run last March, and who need to integrate a host of new players around return stalwart Przemek Karnowski. Its a familiar roster, but not -- well, you get the idea. -- Brennan17. UCLA Bruins: Holding Out for a Hero, Bonnie Tyler (1984)When your head coach decides to give back a year of a contract extension that was already inked because angry fans wouldnt stop flying banners or driving billboards around campus demanding he be fired, its safe to say you need a hero much in the same way Kevin Bacon needed to win that game of chicken in Footloose. The Bruins are hoping their white knight upon a fiery steed is freshman Lonzo Ball, the top-ranked point guard in the 2016 class. -- Strong18. Maryland Terrapins: Public Service Announcement, Jay Z (2003)The Terps began last season as our preseason No. 1 team but never quite lived up to expectations. With the bulk of that team now gone including freshman center Diamond Stone, the Terps have to redefine themselves. Junior guard Melo Trimble is the main player who will be stating, Allow me to reintroduce myself, after watching his shooting percentages decline as a sophomore. -- Brown19. Saint Marys Gaels: Down Under, Men at Work (1981)OK yes, its obvious but with six Australians on the roster obvious seems a good route to go. Even better than the song is the band that sang it -- Men at Work. Thats what these Gaels need to do, find some hardhats and get some work done so they can get out of their three-year NIT skid. -- ONeil20. Creighton Bluejays: Dont You (Forget About Me), Simple Minds (1985)The Bluejays deserve more love and attention this offseason. Three of Creightons top four scorers -- Maurice Watson Jr. (14.1 points per game), Cole Huff (11.3) and Isaiah Zierden (10.2) -- return in 2016-17. Plus, former Kansas State star Marcus Foster (12.5 PPG in 2014-15) will be eligible next season. So, in the words of Scottish rock band Simple Minds, Dont You (Forget About Me). It would not be wise to ignore this program in the buildup to 2016-17. -- Medcalf21. Rhode Island Rams: Better Now, Collective Soul (2004)The Rams will be favored by many to win the Atlantic 10 this season, and they were supposed to be in contention last season too before star guard E.C. Matthews tore his ACL. During the 2014-15 season, Matthews scored nearly 17 points and grabbed 5.6 rebounds per game. After a lengthy rehab process, Matthews is set to return, newly calibrated, all shiny and clean. You heard Collective Soul, let the word out, oh Im (hes) feeling better now.?-- Strong22. Cincinnati Bearcats: Ace of Spades, Motorhead (1980)There is no larger thematic significance here other than that Ace of Spades is the best fighting soundtrack ever, and Cincinnatis preferred style of play can best be described as organized bar-brawl. -- Brennan23. Florida State Seminoles: Cool It Now, New Edition (1984)Florida State hasnt reached the NCAA tournament since 2012. Leonard Hamiltons team boasts the talent to end that streak in 2016-17. Dwayne Bacon (15.8 PPG) and Xavier Rathan-Mayes (11.8 PPG) are both back. Jonathan Isaac, the No. 12 prospect in the 2016 incoming class per RecruitingNation, will join the fold, too. Its all there for Florida State. The program should take New Editions advice, however, and Cool It Now. Florida State finished 41st in adjusted tempo but committed turnovers on 18.6 percent of its possessions in league play (12th in the ACC), per -- Medcalf24. Connecticut Huskies: Scenario, A Tribe Called Quest (1992)The Huskies have embodied Phife Dawgs classic line, Weve been known to do the impossible like Broadway Joe. UConn put together two of the most improbable title runs this century led by Kemba Walker in 2011 and Shabazz Napier in 2014. Just like those teams, on paper, UConn this season doesnt automatically look like a national championship contender. But at this point we should not be surprised if coach Kevin Ollie summons his inner Namath. -- Brown25. Syracuse Orange: Happy, Pharrell Williams (2013)Wait. Thats not the first word that pops in your head when you think of coach Jim Boeheim? Well the Hall of Famer ought to be downright giddy this season. The mess of an endless NCAA investigation is behind him, his team somehow made it to the Final Four a year ago, and though losing Malachi Richardson to the NBA was a blow, the Orange will have a talented roster mixed with old and new, that should make for a good season. Buy the man a Pharrell hat. -- ONeil Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
