#1 series tally to 24 in four innings before von mary123 21.09.2019 08:28

Even the guys who tote the ball recognize that the NFL is a passers league. No argument here.As this week shows, however, running backs still have a prime role in the outcome of games. When the weather turns cool, then cold, then frigid, and the winds begin to whip on the tundras, they will become even more critical.So it was enlightening to see runners young and old making a difference -- or keeping their teams in games. From veterans Frank Gore, Jonathan Stewart and especially LeSean McCoy , to kids such as rookie sensation Ezekiel Elliott, Spencer Ware, Matt Jones and Jay Ajayi, it was impressive, win or lose.McCoy and Gore have all-star credentials and are showing they remain dangerous and dependable. McCoy ran 19 times for 140 yards and scored three touchdowns as the Bills, who want to pound opponents on the ground, thumped the 49ers 45-16 with their best rushing performance in 24 years. Gore, at 33, became the first Colt in 3 1/2 years to rush for more than 100 yards, getting 106 in a 26-23 loss at Houston.Hes just very dynamic, Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, a pretty good runner himself, said of McCoy. Ive said this before. Whether its in the running game or the passing game, hes a playmaker. He wants the ball, and when he gets the ball he knows what to do with it, and he can create plays. Some of those plays he made out there from the backfield position, there are only one or two guys -- maybe just him -- who can do that in the National Football League.Its not just him Tyrod, though few runners have as good a pedigree or nickname, Shady, as McCoy.You can be sure Bills coach Rex Ryan will keep feeding McCoy the ball, too.I think, talking to LeSean, he was really disappointed how he played last year, Ryan said. And all of us as we know, and Ive told him several times, like all of us here in Buffalo, we think, `Hey man, youve played great.And hes like, `No, I can play better. And I guess he was right, but we would have been happy with how he played last year.Ware, Jones and Ajayi werent big factors last year. Ware had 72 carries for Kansas City, though he scored six times; Jones rushed 144 times for 490 yards as a backup to Alfred Morris in Washington. Ajayi barely saw the field in Miami with 49 carries.On Sunday, they were prime-timers as Ware went for 131 yards and a touchdown on 34 runs, Jones had 135 on 16 and scored once, while Ajayi had a breakout game in a stunning upset of Pittsburgh with 204 yards on 25 carries and two scores -- including a clinching 62-yard scamper.From last week, coach (Adam) Gase told me that he would feature me more in the run game and he would try to get me a good amount of touches, said Ajayi, whose previous high was 13 carries.The Dolphins had to do something with their offense stagnant and their season spiraling away. Ajayi was the answer, and he certainly will get more opportunities because the Dolphins air game is so inconsistent.Wares numbers are even more impressive because hes one of three RBs the Chiefs can use moving forward. Their star, Jamaal Charles, finally is back from a long rehab after knee surgery, and Charcandrick West showed last year with Charles sidelined that he can be the main man behind Alex Smith.Having them both out there, thats a win-win, I think, coach Andy Reid said of Ware and Charles. Theyre completely different players, and they both did a nice job.Jones also was part of a committee of runners. Washington already has a solid corps of receivers, particularly when tight end Jordan Reed is healthy -- he missed the win over Philadelphia with a concussion. In Jones, Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson, they could find plenty of offensive balance.That trio combined for 231 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles.I think just us three guys coming together and believing in ourselves and going out there and doing things we know we can do, Kelley said. Thats why they got us here.Even more promising for the rushing games influence in the NFL moving forward in 2016 is that such stars as LeVeon Bell, DeMarco Murray, Todd Gurley and Doug Martin werent factors in Week 6. Look for them to be heading into November and December.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Air Force 1 Dame Norge .

Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings.Bangladesh secured an historic first victory over England as teenager Mehedi Hasan Miraz inspired a stunning 108-run victory on day three of the second Test in Dhaka. England were well-placed at 100-0 at tea in pursuit of the 273 runs needed to win the series 2-0 with Ben Duckett (56) and Alastair Cook (59) playing positively but collapsed to 127-5 and then 164 all out, Mehedi (6-77) becoming only the sixth player in history to take three five-wicket hauls in his first three Tests.The tourists challenge always looked tough given no England side had ever chased more than 209 to win a Test in Asia but the scale of their implosion was staggering, Shakib Al Hasan (4-49) taking three of the final four wickets to fall in one over.The momentous final wicket, earning Bangladesh only the eighth win in their 95-Test history, fell fittingly to Mehedi when he trapped Steven Finn lbw to spark jubilant scenes amid the home players. Watch highlights of day three of the second Test After five victories against Zimbabwe and two against an under-strength West Indies, this success was by far the most significant in Bangladeshs Test development and ensured the two-Test series ended all-square.Mushfiqur Rahmans side began the day on 152-3 in their second innings with a healthy cushion of 128 runs.Four drops didnt help the tourists cause - Imrul Kayes (78) enjoying lives on 67 and 74 as first Cook at leg slip and then Root at slip failed to cling onto tough one-handed chances off Zafar Ansari and Moeen Ali respectively, before he was trapped lbw on the sweep by Ali for 78.Shakib would have been out for six had Cook reviewed a not out lbw decision off Ali and then was missed badly in the deep on 23 as Duckett shelled a dolly off Ansaris bowling.England didnt learn their lesson - Mushfiqur also benefitting from a missed lbw opportunity early in his innings before Steven Finn couldnt quite leap high enough to grab a chance at mid-off - Ansari the unlucky bowler again. The tourists finally got their reward when Shakib (41) chopped Adil Rashids fifth ball of the day onto his stumps and on the same score Mushfiqur nicked Ben Stokes to Cook at first slip to make it 238-6.Sabbir Rahman (15) and Shuvagata Hom (25no) battled gamely before Stokes removed the former lbw just before lunch, the Durham all-rounder then forcing Taijul Islam to nick off making it 273-8.ddddddddddddRashid polished off the tail as Mehedi Hasan edged to Root attempting to go over the top and Kamrul Islam Rabbi skied a return catch attempting to hit his second six.Englands victory chase began positively, Duckett signalling his intent by reverse sweeping Shakib for consecutive boundaries and playing with intent even after being dropped on 12 by Mumudullah as he cut fiercely at Mehedi. Ben Duckett struck seven fours and one six off 64 balls The Northamptonshire batsman, who compiled 36 runs in his first three Test knocks, moved swiftly into the forties by launching Shakib over long on for six and his half-century soon followed, courtesy of a fine-dabbed sweep for four.The 100-stand came up off the very next delivery as Duckett pulled Mehedi for four, there being little indication of the mayhem to come as England took tea on 100-0.The collapse began immediately upon the resumption as Mehedi bowled Duckett beneath his bat with his first delivery, the ball keeping a little low.Root, able to bat after a stomach complaint, made just one before falling lbw to Shakib on the front foot and 108-2 nearly became 110-3 only for Cook to successfully overturn an incredibly tight lbw decision.Gary Ballance, so desperately in need of a score ahead of the India series, took his series tally to 24 in four innings before meekly miscuing a rank Mehedi delivery to Tamim Iqbal at mid-off.Ali lasted just four balls, Mehedis lbw appeal upheld despite a review, and when Cook prodded the spinner to Mominul at silly point the game looked close to up. Cook was one of only three players to reach double figures Hopes of Englands middle-to-lower order saving face vanished when Jonny Bairstow ballooned a catch to leg-slip and while Stokes received a life on 13 when Shakib shelled a return catch and was saved from a tight lbw call when the ball brushed his glove on the sweep, there was to be no great escape.Stokes played with intent, pumping Mehedi down the ground for six, only to be bowled off-stump by Shakib who then picked up Rashid and Ansari in three balls, the latter courtesy of sharp reactions from short leg Mominul who parried a catch to Imrul to leave England on the brink.Watch highlights of day three of the second Test between Bangladesh and England on Sky Sports 5 at 5pm, then stay tuned for the Verdict at 6pm on the same channel.
