t up and trying to get some momentum heading into next season.That resolution leaves the Jaguars playing the role of spoiler yet Antworten

SYLVANIA, Ohio -- The head-to-head duel between Beatriz Recari and Paula Creamer in the final round of the Marathon Classic on Sunday was great theatre. Dont be surprised if theres a sequel. Recari rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole to take the lead for good and hung on to hold off Creamer for her third LPGA Tour title. They started the day tied and spent most of the day trading the lead -- as if it were match play. The duel in the heat in suburban Toledo might have been foreshadowing for when both players participate in next months Solheim Cup at the Colorado Golf Club, Recari for the European side and Paula Creamer for the United States. "Back and forth, back and forth," Recari said of their Sunday showdown. "It totally felt like the Solheim Cup." Recari and Creamer, who won the tournament then known as the Jamie Farr Toledo Classic five years ago, started the day tied for first, three shots ahead of their nearest pursuers. They traded the lead -- never separated by more than one stroke -- and were still even until Recari birdied the par-3 14th. The 26-year-old Recari closed with a 5-under 66 to finish at 17-under 267. She missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 17th, but made a clutch 5-footer for par at the 18th. Creamer, who was seeking her 10th career win and first since the 2010 U.S. Womens Open, finished with a 67. She said she gave it everything she had. "My goodness, there were so many great shots played today," Creamer said. "Do I wish I could go back and maybe change a couple of things here and there? Yes. But I played great. Beatriz just played one shot better." Jodi Ewart Shadoff (66) shared third place at 13 under with Lexi Thompson, who shot a 67 and had a hole-in-one that won the 18-year-old a car. Next came Angela Stanford (67) and Jacqui Cocolino (70) at 19 under. Meena Lee had the days low round, a 62, and was with amateur sensation Lydia Ko (68), Toledo-born Stacy Lewis (64), Jennifer Johnson (66) and Chie Arimura (71) at 9 under. Playing in the same threesome, Creamer took the lead twice with birdies -- on the third and fifth holes -- and each time Recari came right back with a birdie on the next hole to knot things. At the seventh hole, Creamer hit her approach to 6 feet and appeared to have a certain birdie, but Recari rolled in a 15-footer before she could. Still in lockstep through 13 holes, there was a lot of fireworks on the 181-yard, par-3 14th. Recari hit her hybrid to 12 feet and Creamers shot ended up 25 feet away. The third member of their group, Thompson, the budding 18-year-old American star-in-the-making, then holed her 6-iron to win a new car. She slapped high fives with her caddie, then happily accepted congratulations from everyone along the rope line all the way to the green. After Creamer almost rolled in her lengthy birdie putt, Recari took the lead for good by making hers. The two then traded birdies at the par-4 16th. Creamers wedge to the green left her just 3 feet away, but Recari rammed in a 25-foot uphill birdie putt to negate Creamers eventual 3 on the hole. "I had a really good read," Recari said. "I stroked it and the hole got in the way." The drama continued at the 17th, the first of back-to-back par-5 closing holes. Creamer laid up with a wedge. Recari then pulled out a hybrid and uncharacteristically went for the green, pulling it slightly to the left where it ended up in the rough. Creamer then hit a wedge to 12 feet and Recari skied a flop shot that ended up 6 feet away. But after Creamer barely missed on the low side, Recari missed a chance to stretch the lead to two shots when she pushed her birdie try. "In all that golf out there, its kind of funny how it all comes down to the wire," Creamer said. At the par-5 closing hole, Creamer found trouble in the trees to the left off the tee, but recovered to hit her second into light rough on the right side. Both then misfired on their approach shots, Creamers running through the green to the first cut and Recari flying the green to light rough. Recari chipped to 5 feet past the hole before Creamer missed her 20-foot birdie putt from the fringe. With the tournament on the line, Recari then stroked in her par putt for her second victory of the season. In March, she won the Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif., beating I.K. Kim with a birdie on the second hole of a playoff. "I was definitely shaky on the last putt," she said. "I knew I had to make it to win and avoid a playoff. A playoff is always nerve-racking." When the Marathon Classic trophy didnt show up immediately after the awards ceremony, Recari joked she had hidden it. "I kept it!" she said, laughing. Wholesale Stitched NFL Jerseys .

HOUSTON -- Despite notching a win that to an extent salvaged their postseason hopes, the Houston Texans havent yet found themselves in position to rest on their laurels.Should the Texans (7-6) defeat the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11) on Sunday at NRG Stadium, theyll inch one step closer to clinching the AFC South title. Houston would improve to 5-0 in the division with games against the Bengals and Titans remaining, with that finale in Tennessee and the division title likely up for grabs.By beating the Colts in Indianapolis for only the second time in franchise history, the Texans remained in a first-place tie with Tennessee. And while Jacksonville doesnt present a serious threat to disrupting their momentum, the Texans will enter the matchup hamstrung in the passing game, already an offensive weakness.With receivers Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller on injured reserve, the Texans also have tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz in concussion protocol. Fiedorowicz is second on the team in receptions (48) and receiving touchdowns (two), and third in receiving yards (505). He is a huge loss for a passing attack ranked 30th in the NFL.C.J. is a big part of what weve been doing, obviously, Texans coach Bill OBrien said. Hes had a good year. Hes a guy that does both things well. He blocks well and obviously hes had a good year in the passing game. Id put him in the day-to-day category. Hes played a lot snaps for us this year. Hes pretty banged up but I know hes going to do everything he can to try to play on Sunday. I know that.As far as the passing game goes, I think its a unit that steps up week in and week out. I know it hasnt been the numbers that maybe everybody looks at but I think theres been some consistency in some of the certain routes that we run and things like that. I think our guys understand the game plan. They understand how we want to attack Jacksonville.OBrien might have been hopeful, but it didnt happen as Fiedorowicz was declared out on Friday.Given their roster attrition, the Texans must lean on their prior postseason experience to navigate the final three weeks of the season. There are veterans sprinkled throughout the roster, eeven some who aided playoff runs elsewhere.ddddddddddddThe Texans have pointed to marginally improved play from quarterback Brock Osweiler, who in turn believes his experience in Denver last season is beneficial.I was very fortunate in my time in Denver to be a part of playoff teams, be a part of teams that were fighting for playoff positions in the month of December, Osweiler said. Then, obviously, last year I was fortunate to be able to contribute actually on the field. Just like I always talk about in here, theres nothing that replaces game reps.Well, theres nothing that replaces experience of being able to experience the playoffs. So, just being around that team, I think it helps me out big-picture-wise of what to expect this month, how to prepare and how to go about things.The Jaguars have no such expectations. After following a pair of one-possession losses in September with back-to-back victories over the Colts and Bears in October, Jacksonville has dropped eight consecutive games. Four of those losses have come by one score, underscoring how frustrating this season has been for the Jaguars.I think it definitely took us by shock, Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson said of the skid. I think offensively its not something that we thought at all. Unfortunately, it is the position that we are in, but at the end of the day, we are still trying to build some light up and trying to get some momentum heading into next season.That resolution leaves the Jaguars playing the role of spoiler yet again, especially given their closing schedule. After visiting the Texans this weekend, the Jaguars will host the Titans before closing on the road in Indianapolis. With the Colts just one game behind Houston and Tennessee, the Jaguars will have a say in the AFC South.Well, anytime its an AFC South opponent, I think every team in our division is looking at that saying, We all want to own the AFC South, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said. When you have three opponents like we do the next three games, its a great opportunity.
