Self-inflicted wounds.Every coach on every football team uses that term at some point, and what hes referring to is handing presents to the opposition.Turnovers.There were 40 of them (counting a blocked punt at Arizona) in Sundays 13 games. The ugliest display of butterfingers, sloppiness or bad luck came in Philadelphia, where two of the better teams in the early going, Minnesota and Philadelphia, combined for eight turnovers . Yep, the previously unbeaten Vikings, who had one giveaway all season, committed four. The Eagles had lost the ball twice in five games, and they also had four.Good defense? At times. More often in this one, it was bad offense.I thought we played embarrassing really is the word, in at least two of the phases, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said after a 21-10 defeat. We turned the ball over offensively, we didnt block people, we dropped balls, we got the quarterback hit. We got third-and-2 inches and we cant convert; on third down or fourth down. We had three shots in the red zone in the first half, we throw an interception. We gave up a 98-yard kickoff return. We fumbled a punt.So if youre going to do those things, you have no chance to win.Even though the Eagles gave the Vikings plenty of opportunities by losing two fumbles and throwing two interceptions. And their rookie quarterback knew enough to term that a no-no.Youre going to make mistakes, those things are going to happen, Carson Wentz said. We have to clean some things up. I think we had four turnovers today. Thats never good. You usually dont win too many games when you do that, but our defense played unbelievable and kept us in the ballgame.That it did -- helped greatly by some ineptitude by Minnesotas offense.Even worse was what the Rams brought to London. English fans are getting more sophisticated about the American brand of football, so they should have recognized the crudity Case Keenum and the Rams showed.Yes, the Giants finally found a pass rush, something they spent a whole lot of money for. That pressure forced some terrible blocking, leading to most of New Yorks four interceptions -- two each by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Landon Collins , who ran one back for a touchdown.The Giants won 17-10, and L.A.s self-inflicted wounds were the difference.Its a momentum changer, Collins said of pickoffs. When you get an interception, it takes a lot out of the defense on the other side of the field, and takes a lot out of that offense because thats where the trust issues come in.Fans can trust that when the weather gets ugly, as it will deeper into the season, turnovers could become even more common. Its nearly always a guarantee that teams leading the turnover differential (its not a ratio if it involves plus and minus, broadcast folks) at the end of the schedule are also in the playoffs, often in the Super Bowl.Remember that this was a relatively mild Sunday in October on which there were three games played indoors, too. Folks who like to see gifts and giveaways can look to, appropriately, the day before Christmas, with contests at Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Green Bay, and New England. Plus a night game two days earlier in Philadelphia, and late-afternoon or night contests in Pittsburgh and Kansas City on Christmas itself.Ravens coach John Harbaugh certainly isnt thinking that far ahead. His team has dropped four straight, and the Ravens had three giveaways Sunday. They head into their bye with turnovers on their mind.The focus is going to be learning how to play winning football, its as simple as that, Harbaugh said. All the things that go into that -- playing with discipline, intelligence, fundamentally sound football, and getting better at the things we need to get better at.It starts with not being charitable.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NBA Jerseys China .

NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. ALAMEDA, Calif. -- A thorough beating by the Kansas City Chiefs did little to change coach Jack Del Rios opinion of his Oakland Raiders team.We have a real good team, he said Monday. Had a bad day yesterday.Boy, did they ever.For the first time since Del Rios first game as coach, the Raiders (4-2) never really had a chance late as they played their first fourth quarter without being within one score at any point since a 33-13 loss to Cincinnati to open the 2015 season.The defense got gashed by Spencer Ware and Alex Smith in the latest in a run of bad performances, Derek Carr and the offense managed just one field goal after scoring a touchdown on the opening drive, usually reliable kicker Sebastian Janikowski missed a 52-yard field goal and the punt coverage unit allowed Tyreek Hill to have a 50-yard return that set up a Kansas City score.Add it all up and the Raiders fell 26-10 to the Chiefs and failed in their opportunity to take sole possession of first place in the AFC West.When things dont go the way you want, each man looks and sees what he can do better, Del Rio said. Were going to ask each guy, every play, every coach to do something, do one thing better this week than you did last week.Del Rio said he believes it is easier to make corrections following a loss instead of a win, when players might get complacent.It all starts with a defense that is on pace to allow the most yards per play (6.9) in the NFL since the 1970 merger. It has been an equal opportunity defense that ranks 30th in yards per carry allowed (4.81) and 31st in yards per pass attempt (8.9).Del Rio said the issues start with communication: getting the play from the sidelinee to the huddle quickly enough and then passing that information on to the 11 defenders on the field.ddddddddddddThe Raiders are using three rookie starters on defense -- defensive lineman Jihad Ward, linebacker Cory James and safety Karl Joseph -- and three other starters in their first year with the team, possibly adding to the issues.When that cleans up, it will alleviate a lot of the issues were having, Del Rio said. Thats why I remain very confident in this football team and our ability to grow as the year goes on. There are young players. Thats not an alibi, thats just reality. I think as they gain confidence, theyll continue to grow and our communication will be better and better.Despite the myriad problems, the Raiders head into a two-week road trip to Florida tied for first with Denver, a half-game ahead of the Chiefs. The offense has frequently bailed out the struggling defense with Carr leading second-half comebacks to beat New Orleans, Baltimore and San Diego.Carr just couldnt deliver on Sunday , committing two turnovers in the loss.We cant dismiss the fact that yesterday didnt go the way we wanted, Del Rio said. But we are after six games sitting here 4-2 tied atop our division.Game notes DL Mario Edwards Jr. (hip) will start running on the side this week and will return to practice for the first time since training camp once he is cleared by doctors. ...
