Stitched Jack Crawford Jersey
FLOWERY BRANCH Youth Justin Bethel Jersey , Ga. (AP)The Falcons know they need to start winning the turnover margin if they want to return to the playoffs. Starting this Sunday at New Orleans would be a good time. Falcons linebacker Deion Jones jumped to make a game-clinching interception in the end zone to help the Falcons hold off the Saints for a 20-17 win on Dec. 7 in the first matchup. Atlanta knows that committing three turnovers and getting one takeaway is unlikely to work again in a game where a win would clinch a playoff berth. And the Falcons (9-5) have been dealing with this issue all season. Their minus-4 turnover margin is tied for eighth-worst in the NFL. ”For us to finish at minus-2, that’s hard to win,” Quinn said. ”So, we know we lost possessions and we didn’t gain enough to give it back to the offense. The turnover margin, we’ve had a couple games where it was really out of whack where we had three.” This is one of the biggest differences in Atlanta this season vs. 2016, when the Falcons went to the Super Bowl with a plus-11 margin (22 takeaways, 11 turnovers) that ranked No. 5. In fact, when they won their final four regular-season games and in the playoffs against Seattle and Green Bay, the Falcons committed just one turnover and had 13 takeaways. Atlanta is tied for the fourth-fewest takeaways this season with 12. They have just four interceptions in 14 games, tied with the Raiders for fewest, after an interception by safety Ricardo Allen in Monday night’s 24-21 win at Tampa Bay was overturned because cornerback Robert Alford was called for holding Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans on the play. Quinn said that was the sixth Atlanta takeaway of the season nullified by a defensive penalty, something he lamented this week and not for the first time. Allen said Alford apologized to him Monday night, but that wasn’t necessary. ”Rocky said something to me when we got to the sideline … he said like, `That’s my bad, man. I should’ve done better.’ I said Stitched Jack Crawford Jersey , `I appreciate that and all, but man, let’s move on. It ain’t that big of a deal.”’ The Falcons are tied for the fifth-fewest turnovers in the NFL with 16, although quarterback Matt Ryan’s 11 interceptions – he threw three against the Saints – are four more than he threw all of last season. Atlanta’s bigger problem has been the shortage of takeaways, something Quinn preaches repeatedly in practice as the Falcons prepare for a game where a victory would keep alive the team’s chance to win the NFC South heading into a home game against the Panthers (10-4) on Dec. 31. There was only one turnover in Monday’s game against the Bucs, and it was critical. Atlanta safety Keanu Neal hit Tampa running back Peyton Barber after a 4-yard run that would’ve created a first-and-goal at the Falcons 5 in the first quarter, forcing and recovering a fumble to thwart a red zone drive. With that in mind, linebacker De’Vondre Campbell said that there’s no need for apologies or pep talks, and the Falcons aren’t going to change anything. ”That’s football. We’re an aggressive team. Just keep going. You can’t worry about stuff like that,” he said. ”Rock is aggressive, and we understand that … It’s obviously not hurting us right now. It’s not a big deal.” Allen even said Alford’s penalty was a good play because without it Evans might have gotten open down the field. ”If you jump a route and it’s not the route you were thinking and they run a double-move, the smartest thing to do is to get a penalty,” he said of Alford’s play. NOTES: Falcons running back Tevin Coleman cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol, and after missing Monday’s game in Tampa Bay he is expected to play Sunday against the Saints. … Wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle, thumb) was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice Youth Jack Crawford Jersey , and is expected to play. … Left guard Andy Levitre (partially torn left triceps) continues to practice with the starters and will likely return to the starting lineup after missing two-plus games. — BASEBALLCHICAGO (AP)The Chicago Cubs have acquired veteran left-hander Cole Hamels in a trade with the Texas Rangers.Chicago also received cash in Friday’s deal in exchange for right-hander Eddie Butler, minor league pitcher Rollie Lacy and a player to be named.Hamels is in the midst of perhaps the worst year of his career, going 5-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts with last-place Texas. He is just 1-3 with an 11.12 ERA in four starts in July.But the 34-year-old Hamels is an experienced playoff pitcher with a history of success at Wrigley Field. He was the NL Championship Series and World Series MVP when Philadelphia won the title in 2008. He is 7-6 with a 3.48 ERA in 16 career postseason starts.SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The Milwaukee Brewers acquired third baseman Mike Moustakas from the Kansas City Royals, making their second deal in as many days as the club makes a push for its first playoff appearance since 2011.The Brewers sent outfielder Brett Phillips and pitcher Jorge Lopez late Friday night to the Royals, who are in last place in the AL Central.Milwaukee announced the trade late Friday night, when they beat San Francisco Giants on the road 3-1. Reliever Joakim Soria, who was acquired Thursday from the Chicago White Sox, made his Brewers debut by pitching a scoreless seventh inning.The left-handed hitting Moustakas was hitting .249 with 20 homers and 62 RBIs for the Royals. His arrival could mean that the Brewers will shift their current third baseman, Travis Shaw, to second base.FOOTBALLFLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – Sam Darnold is officially a holdout.The New York Jets began their first practice of training camp Friday without their prized rookie quarterback.Darnold was the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft. The only other unsigned pick in the entire draft is Chicago linebacker Roquan Smith, the No. 8 choice.Under the NFL’s labor agreement, contract holdouts are uncommon because deals are slotted based on draft position. Darnold will receive a four-year, fully guaranteed contract worth $30.247 million, including a $20 million signing bonus.The dispute seems to hang on contract language. If a player is cut during his rookie contract Stitched Duke Riley Jersey , offset language provides the team with financial protection. Not having offset language allows a player to receive his salary from the team that cut him, as well as get paid by another team that signs him.GOLFOAKVILLE, Ontario (AP) – Keegan Bradley played the last four holes in 6 under, making two of his three eagles Friday, to pull within a shot of the lead in the RBC Canadian Open.Bradley holed putts of 10 feet on the par-3 15th, 20 feet on the par-5 16th, 27 feet on the par-4 17th and 20 feet on the par-5 18th – after hitting an approach from 159 yards.
