Sunday’s loss was the seventh time in the last eight games the Broncos failed to score at least 20 points. And in the game when they reached 23 points, they lost by 28 (51-23 to the Philadelphia Eagles).

The Broncos have already benched quarterback Trevor Siemian after a three-interception night in the Broncos’ Oct. 30 loss in Kansas City. They are now 0-3 in Brock Osweiler’s starts since he replaced Siemian. Osweiler has completed just 53 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and four interceptions in those games.

For sure, Curry said. It’s 25, 26 points that are missing and you’ve got to try to put pressure on the defense to kind of honor your scoring threat and open up the floor for everyone else.

Allen Crabbe scored 25 points, and Spencer Dinwiddie had 21 points and eight assists for the Nets.

I thought we were taken by the moment a little bit, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. You know, these guys play a lot of big games, but I felt like were frozen for some reason.

It was 64-42 at halftime and the Warriors extended the lead to 28 in the third, though the Nets cut that in half by period’s end, scoring 42 points to trim it to 98-84.

It wasn’t what he had hoped for or what we had hoped for, McDermott said. At the same time, you know when you put a young player out there, a young quarterback, that there is going to be some ups and downs. This is part of it. A good part about Nate is I know he’s a mentally tough individual, and he’s a good football player. Johnathan Joseph Womens Jersey So to me, it’s not indicative who [he] is as a player. But you know you’re going to go through some of this. All good players do.

Shore, Spezza score, Stars rally to beat Canadiens 3-1

Skating on the same line after a tactical change during the game, Devin Shore and Jason Spezza sparked the Dallas Stars to a 3-1 comeback win over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.

A strong response to Montreal’s goal and the move that put Shore, Spezza and Tyler Seguin together made the difference for the Stars.

Jeffery said there will likely be some trash-talking with players from his old team as Sunday draws closer, but overall he is trying to downplay the significance of facing the Bears, saying he’s just looking at it as another game. He also pushed away talk about his long-term future — Jeffery, 27, is again scheduled to be a free agent this offseason — while making it clear he’s a fan of his current situation.

I love it here in Philly, man. I hope so, said Jeffery, when asked if he will be here for a while. But right now I’m just playing football, just staying locked in and focusing in on one day at a time, in the moment.

Sacramento is expected to play its third straight game without second-leading scorer Buddy Hield (11.6 points per game), sidelined due to a sprained right ankle. The Kings have struggled to score all season even when he does play. They manage just 93.2 points per game, also the league’s worst mark.

Sometimes, we’re having the first shot, it’s (contested), we did everything right except get the rebound, and then (the opponents) get an open shot off a second-chance shot, Kings rookie De’Aaron Fox said. So, we just know if we can complete a lot of plays with a rebound, we’ll be just fine.

Nuggets F Paul Millsap to have wrist surgery, could miss 3 months

Denver Nuggets forward Paul Millsap could miss three months due to surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist, league sources tell ESPN.

“I still don’t know how bad it is,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said at shootaround Wednesday. “Just just as thorough as possible, he’s going to go talk to some other doctors, get some other opinions before we make a decision to what the best course of action is regarding his left wrist.”

Millsap, 32, is averaging 16.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in his first season with the Nuggets.

Chancellor was so unusually large for a safety that some thought he was a man without a position in a traditional defense. He was the same height and weight as Aaron Rouse, a safety Green Bay had selected in 2007, when Schneider was with the Packers. There was discussion in the Seahawks’ draft room over whether Chancellor would struggle in space the way Rouse and other longer-levered safeties had struggled, even though Chancellor had shown enough body control to ultimately temper those concerns.

The team confirmed that Lasco had a spine injury and was in the care of team doctor Michael Hartman as he underwent further evaluation. Payton was optimistic about Lasco’s condition after the game.

“I think all the signs are positive, his movement and everything. I think that’s encouraging,” Payton said.

Lasco, 25, was selected out of Cal by New Orleans in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft and has spent most of his first two seasons as a special-teams coverage specialist.nationals_006

Peterson’s lack of versatility didn’t help in New Orleans either

This is how Khan is during Jaguars’ home games, to ever the host. There’s always someone new to meet, a new deal to discuss, another photo to take as the owner with the cool mustache.

Michael Campanaro, punt-returner/wide receiver, Baltimore. His weaving 73-yard punt return after the Bears’ ensuing series, plus a two-point conversion pass by Joe Flacco, tied the game against the Bears and James Neal Womens Jersey sent it to overtime.

Adults without children gathered at the park to watch games, and kids who might have roamed the streets were under the watch of people like Johnson, who has 24 years of coaching experience. This Falcons football team has the word FAMILY’ stitched across one shoulder of its football uniform.

That’s what it is over here, Johnson says. Shoestring budget, rocks on the football field. We had to pick glass up when we started. Tournaments we put together, ragtag. When you go through things together and you stay down and stay disciplined, its family.

Says Telyse: Football is the game-changer for them. If there was no football, I think I’d have two entirely different children than I have now.

Vikings star receiver Stefon Diggs returned after missing the past two games. The wideout was used mostly on underneath drag routes early, catching four passes for 27 yards in the first half.

Limited Womens Brian Hoyer Jersey The witness statements from that night contradicted her version of events, too. Of the five eyewitnesses who gave statements, including the woman’s friend, none corroborated Elliott’s accuser’s story.

Peterson’s lack of versatility didn’t help in New Orleans either. At this point, you have to carve out a specialized role for Peterson, which the Cardinals are set up to do in Bruce Arians’ system.

Larry Fitzgerald becomes sixth NFL receiver to reach 15,000 yards

The milestones just keep coming for Larry Fitzgerald.

But will Fitzgerald return? He’s pondered retirement the past few offseasons and has said he’d like to go out at the top of his game.

I can still play at a high level, Fitzgerald told reporters during training camp. If my number is called, I can still make a play.

The 34-year-old Fitzgerald has 60 catches for 677 yards and three touchdowns this season.

According to LaVergne, Simpson subsequently contacted his parole officer and on Thursday underwent drug and alcohol tests, which were negative.

Simpson, paroled last month, served nine years in Nevada state prison for armed robbery related to a botched attempt to retrieve some of his memorabilia in Las Vegas.

Jordan Matthews, Buffalo Bills, knee, (Q), 4:05 p.m. ET: Matthews was limited in practice daily because of a knee injury. He comes into the game as questionable but appears to be on track Virgil Green Jersey toward playing Sunday. If he does play, he will be dealing with a quarterback change as Nathan Peterman will be the signal-caller for the Bills against the Chargers.

With some public complaints about Musgrave getting away from running the ball and Downing in danger of leaving town, the Raiders sacrificed one successful coordinator in the hopes of retaining a guy who had struck a groove with the team’s $125 million franchise quarterback.

Schlopy didn’t attempt a single field goal in the team’s first two games.

After Crean was relieved of his duties, Glass laid out three double-check-plus assets for his would-be coach: ties to the state of Indiana; ties to the university; and collegiate head-coaching experience.

The authenticity is critical, in having a star like Dak talk about it openly, says Sharon Byers, chief development and marketing officer for the ACS. That connection point锟斤拷this affected me, and I don’t want it to affect anyone else. It takes that mystique off, and particularly in the African-American community, cancer rates are actually on the increase. And why is that? The fear of going in and getting screened, or not wanting to know. People like Dak, with his voice, can help break through that barrier and get people in and understand prevention and get screened.

Kids Jeff Bagwell Jersey His third game would be back in Orchard Park, his hometown. His dad would be in the stands that day. As would Ron Tipps and other assorted friends and family members. Schlopy went into Sunday afternoon as excited as any game he could remember. Not even the looming presence of Lawrence Taylor could dampen his spirits.

Terrelle Pryor Sr., WR, Redskins: His season has been immensely disappointing, Moe Harkless Jersey but nothing — literally — can top his Week 8 fantasy output. Pryor was shut out on the fantasy score card on one target, only the fifth time in his 41 career games he has been held scoreless or worse and second time in his 20 career starts he has done that. The number of teams rostering and starting him plummeted entering Week 8, dipping to 74.1 and 16.4 percent, and it’s looking like it’s time to move on in 10- and 12-team formats.

I don’t know if anyone really knows, but it’s clear both those dudes ate their Wheaties and did a couple of more bicep curls before today’s game. The play was originally ruled an interception by Ward. However, upon further review, it was determined that Thompkins actually had possession and was ruled down in the end zone before Ward took the ball. Touchdown Penn State. Nittany Lions up 35-20 with 7:25 left in the third.

The party concluded in the middle of the afternoon.

Two Big 12 games landed on either side of lofty totals on Saturday and left bettors frustrated. ESPN Stats & Information’s Rob Nelson takes a look at the weekend’s worst football bad beats.

The birthday party got rolling at 12:30 p.m. There were countless trips to the bathroom, drinks of water and other tasks required to satisfy the needs of candy-fueled 7-year-olds. One of the dads was trying to keep track of the NFL scores on his phone, but there certainly wasn’t much time for fantasy football.

The party concluded in the middle of the afternoon. On the ride home, cubsfan333 listened to Sirius radio, trying to get caught up on the scores and statistics. He was frazzled and still facing an after-party at his house.

But how about pushing it back to Week 10 or so? Week 12 even? Because this week has been a lot of fun.

Campbell has trained the Cyclones well. Some of them, in fact, seem only to grow more resolute in showing a hard-edged toughness as Iowa State adds to its win total.

Asked Saturday if he felt the win over TCU proved that Iowa State belonged in the Big 12 title race, running back David Montgomery answered without a moment of thought.

It’s Spurrier, and that legacy trampled Will Muschamp before it trampled McElwain, two head coaches who clearly lacked the offensive imagination to keep up.

Meanwhile, two hours down the highway in Orlando, Frost has done what Spurrier did in the early 1990s at Florida — transforming UCF into relevancy with an offense you can’t stop watching.

“We’re talking to both of them (Team Penske and Roush Fenway Racing), but we’ll be affiliated with a team next year.” The No. 32 team finished 38th in owner points, the lowest of teams with a charter. redskins_105_6f444ce429598e12-180x180

Captured the Central Division with relative ease and brought in Chris Chelios at the trade deadline to give them some grit along the blue line.

Swept Anaheim in the first round and took a 2-0 lead over rival Colorado in the conference semifinals. Goaltender Bill Ranford, starting while Chris Osgood recovered from a sprained right knee, fell back to earth in a 5-3 loss in Game 3 and Detroit never recovered even after Osgood returned.

Posted NHL-best 119 points to win Smythe Division for fifth straight time behind record 215 points from Gretzky.

Faced rival Calgary in division finals. Dropped Game 1 at home and spent the rest of the series trying to catch up, falling 3-2 in Game 7. Flames center Perry Berezan’s third-period goal silenced the Northlands Coliseum crowd and provided a speed bump in Edmonton’s dynasty.

Story of the Week: by Nick Anderson of the Washington Post, on the continuing craziness of the college application process, centering mostly on the essay, which now matters so much in who gets in and who doesn’t, and where.

Really good reporting by Anderson. He found a tutoring place in New England that, in a four-day boot camp for college-bound high-schoolers, works on the essay and the extra-curricular goals, and charges kids $16,000.

Green then directed his ire at an NBA executive.

They got presidents of teams giving middle fingers on national TV and nothing’s said, he said. You don’t want to shine the light on somebody else. They got someone else to be the bad guy, so I’ll just keep being me. I guess I’m not supposed to be me. I tried that. That s— don’t work, either. So, it is what it is. I wish I had a better answer, but I really don’t have a better answer. Failing to disengage? I don’t know what that means. Getting punched, grabbed and slammed is maybe what that means.

Despite losing goalies Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) and Malcolm Subban (lower-body injury), Vegas continues to find ways to win. The Golden Knights have turned to Oscar Dansk, who has won all three of his appearances (two starts). Dansk leads the NHL with a 1.34 goals-against average and .959 save percentage.

No other goaltender in the expansion era (since 1967) has won his first three games while playing for a first-year team, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Seattle drafted Lane in the sixth round in 2012 and gave him a contract extension in March of 2016, after Lane came back from a broken wrist and torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots.

Lane began this season as the Seahawks’ starting right cornerback but recently lost that job to rookie Shaquill Griffin. Lane returned Sunday after missing the past two games and most of a third with a groin injury. He began the game as Seattle’s nickelback but was replaced in that role by Brett Ritchie Jersey Justin Coleman after hurting his thigh, Carroll said.

Draymond Green Youth Jersey Lane tweeted a farewell to the Seahawks shortly after the trade news broke and appeared ready to move on to the next chapter of his NFL career.

In truth, I will probably make an alternate lineup with Drummond, given the matchup, but he’s impossible to fit with both Westbrook and Antetokounmpo. He has been staying out of foul trouble and his rebounding is superb, so the fade has more to do with the upside/floor of the other two stars on tonight’s slate than with any shortcoming on Drummond’s part. — Renee Miller

Josh Bynes Youth Jersey Luke Walton and the Lakers have often go to a small lineup that forces Brook Lopez and the opposing center to stay on the bench, and if that happens tonight it could mean fewer minutes for Drummond. Even if Drummond plays as normal, though, he has a high price tag and it will be difficult for him to reach value even if he plays well like he has of late. — Joe Kaiser

It’s tough to a get a true fade on a short slate, but I’m trying to avoid Middleton in all formats tonight. He had 27 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds on Sunday … and his DraftKings price jumped $900 as a result!

One of those things the Devils have been focusing on during their break is cutting down on penalties. New Jersey is fourth in the league in total penalties (47) and penalty minutes per game (15:00).

The time off is helping players get healthier, too. Starting goalie Cory David Perron Authentic Jersey Schneider left after the second period of the Devils’ comeback win at Ottawa last Thursday with a lower-body injury but has been skating on his own this week. Palmieri (lower body injury) has been resting and veteran Brian Boyle has begun practicing with the team after his cancer diagnosis last month.
