REGINA -- "Struggling" is an adjective that is not generally applied to the Montreal Alouettes, but there is no doubt the perennial powerhouse has fallen on hard times this CFL season. Joe Mullen Blues Jersey . The Alouettes are off to a 2-4 start, and now go on the road to face a Saskatchewan Roughrider team looking to avenge its first loss of the season. You can see all the action on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 4pm et/1pm pt. "It doesnt sit well with anybody," veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo told reporters Friday. "We are just not accustomed to being 2-4. Its very disturbing." Normally, this is the time of year when general manager Jim Popp would be touring NFL camps in search of import talent. Instead, he is on the sidelines as a replacement for fired head coach Dan Hawkins, trying to return the team to its former winning ways. "Its an evaluation as much as anything," said Popp, who considers himself a "transition" coach. "And it seems like its going in the right direction." Calvillo is convinced that the talent is there and he says the players have confidence in the coaching staff. "Its part of the cycle, part of football life," he said of the teams current woes, adding that he, personally, is determined to fight his way through it. "Im not a quitter." As scenarios go, Mosaic Stadium is not the ideal environment for a team that is sputtering as opposed to streaking. Popp knows that road games are a challenge at the best of times, and Ridervile in particular is "a very tough place" to play. The Roughriders announced a sellout crowd of 40,637 will take in Saturdays game. Calvillo has always loved competing in Saskatchewan, owing to the energized and energizing atmosphere created by the hometown fans. "At the same time," he said, "we have a job to do." For their part, the Roughriders are downplaying last weeks 42-27 loss to the Stampeders that ended their bid at a perfect season. "On defence, we could have done a lot more things, we know that," linebacker Craig Butler said. "This defence takes a lot of pride in everything we do. Well bounce back." Added defensive back Dwight Anderson: "This has been a great week in practice. Im looking forward to (Saturdays) game." Slotback Geroy Simon says he holds the Alouettes defence in high regard, particularly the teams secondary. "Theyre a veteran group and they play aggressively," he said. "I think weve just got to execute, thats all. We have to keep the ball out of (Calvillos) hands. We need to come up with first downs." Quarterback Darian Durant says the Roughriders are ready to move on from last weeks loss. "Definitely, the guys are a lot more motivated," he said. "(Last week) was a wake-up call for us and wake-up calls are good. We have to make sure we dont look behind us. We have to look ahead." By "looking ahead," Durant does not mean looking past the Alouettes. Indeed, he has been cautioning his teammates not to judge Montreal on its record. "We cant take them lightly," he said. "They have weapons all over the place." Although they have never been teammates, Durant has always admired Calvillo, for his ability to read defences and his penchant for building close relationships with his receivers. By observing Calvillo, he has also learned "how to be a pro." As recently as Friday, Saskatchewan head coach Corey Chamblin discussed with his players the importance of regaining that "winning attitude." He has dismissed the loss in Calgary as simply being one of those things. "It wasnt our night," he said. Vince Dunn Jersey . 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions.

CLEVELAND -- A short bus ride into Ohio put Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers back in the fast lane. Eddie Vanderdoes Raiders Jersey .The playoffs remain a possible destination.LeVeon Bell scored on a 1-yard touchdown run -- long after time expired in the first half -- and Pittsburghs defense recorded eight sacks as the Steelers snapped a four-game losing streak, 24-9 Sunday over the winless Cleveland Browns.The Steelers (5-5) scored eight points with zeroes showing on the clock before halftime after they were awarded two extra plays because of defensive penalties against the Browns (0-11), who also lost rookie quarterback Cody Kessler with a concussion.Pittsburghs win, coupled with Baltimores loss to Dallas, pushed the Steelers back into a tie for first place in the AFC North with the Ravens (5-5).Roethlisberger tied to downplay the victory, but there was no denying its importance.We just won a game, honestly, thats the approach we have to have, Big Ben said. It really doesnt mean anything. It means we won a football game.The Steelers did it by playing Steelers football -- running the ball, stopping the run and physically punishing the Browns.After they knocked Kessler from the game, defensive tackle Javon Hargrave recovered a fumble by Browns backup QB Josh McCown for a TD with 3:36 left to seal Pittsburghs win. The Steelers came in with a league-low 13 sacks before unloading on the Browns.On a bitter blustery day, where throwing was difficult, Bell finished with a season-high 146 yards rushing as the Steelers improved to 2/3 on the road and avoided an embarrassing loss to the NFLs worst team.We knew with the weather we had today that he was going to have to be big for us, said Roethlisberger, who improved to 20-2 in starts against Cleveland, still paying for not drafting the Ohio native in 2004.Making it worse, Roethlisbergers 10 wins in Cleveland match Derek Anderson for the most home wins by a Browns quarterback since 1999.Kessler sustained a concussion -- his second this season -- late in the third quarter. Kessler was being dragged down when he was hit by Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who launched himself and was called for unnecessary roughness. Its not clear if Kessler was hurt by Timmons or when his head hit the turf.Brown coach Hue Jackson said Kesslers season could be over.Were definitely going to talk to our medical staff, Jackson said. This is about a young mans career and future. We have to do the right thing.Jackson didnt think Timmons play was dirty.This is football, he said. This is a tough sport. I dont think they were border line.Pittsburgh dominated the first half, but only led 6-0 before the strange final moments.Starting at the Cleveland 41, Roethlisberger drove the Steelers to the Browns 3 with 8 seconds left. On second down, Roethlisbergers pass to Antonio Brown in the end zone was incomplete as time ran out.However, Browns defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun was called for holding, giving Pittsburgh another chance.Again, Roethlisberger looked for Brown, who was dragged to the ground by star cornerback Joe Haden. Pass interference was called and Steelers coach Mike Tomlin stayed aggressive and Bell bowled over the goal line to make it 12-0.Thats the mentality that coach has and the confidence he has in us, Roethlisberger said. We actually called a pass plan on that, and I ran to the sideline and told coach (offensive coordinator Todd) Haley, `No we need to run this because the boys up front want to run it. So we changed the play at the very last minute and LeVeon got it in for us.STILL HOPEThree NFL teams previously went 0-11 before winning a game -- the 1975 Chargers, 1984 Bills, 2000 Chargers -- while seven had even worse starts.SUPER STEELERPittsburgh linebacker James Harrison is the clubs career sack leader.Harrison drilled Kessler in the third quarter to pass Jason Gildon (77) for the most sacks in the Steelers storied defensive history. Its likely Hall of Famers Joe Greene, Jack Lambert or Jack Ham could have more, but the NFL didnt recognize sacks as an official statistic until 1982.Harrison teared up in the locker room afterward.GRIFFIN GETTING CLOSEBrowns quarterback Robert Griffin III, who has been out since breaking a bone in his left shoulder in the season opener, did some conditioning drills, threw -- and even drop kicked a ball through the uprights -- before the game.Griffin has been cleared to practice this week and will undergo another medical exam to see if he can take contact.If he continues to progress, Griffin will likely start one of Clevelands final five games.

NEW ORLEANS -- Saints receiver Michael Thomas was having a charmed rookie season until he ran up against the top-rated pass defense in the NFL.His two fumbles and bobble-turned-interception were among the most glaring mishaps that undermined the Saints bid to break .500 for the first time since the end of the 2013 season.Thomas apparently was in no mood to discuss his worst day as a pro following New Orleans 25-23 loss to the defending champion Denver Broncos. He was nowhere to be found in the locker room, so his teammates and coach spoke for him.Some lessons in our league are learned the hard way, coach Sean Payton said. You hope that ball security is not one of them, but it doesnt just happen to rookies either. Weve got to get that corrected.Added offensive tackle and locker room leader Zach Strief, Guys make mistakes. Mike will come back. Weve got a lot of faith in Mike. He knows that cant happen.Nothing heading into Sunday pointed to Thomas careening into a turnover-laden performance. Entering Sunday, he led all NFL rookies in catches (47), receiving yards (573) and touchdown receptions (5).A week ago, in a win over San Francisco, his two touchdowns were tough, critical catches the helped New Orleans get back to .500. His second TD was an acrobatic grab after he tipped the ball to himself over the back of a defender.Against Denver, he caught four passes for 40 yards, but his key plays resulted in turnovers.I know hes going to be stronger for this, New Orleans receiver Willie Snead said. I know hes going to get over it and ccome back Thursday (against Carolina) and be ready to go. Khalil Mack Jersey. .On the first play of the second quarter, Drew Brees threw to Thomas, who got his hands on the ball only to have it pop from his grasp and straight to Denver safety Darian Stewart. Denver converted a 50-yard field goal for a 10-0 lead on the ensuing series.Its the two fumbles, though, that Thomas might have a tough time overcoming.The first came early in the fourth quarter with the Saints leading 17-10 and in possession after a missed Denver field goal. The fumble, forced by Bradley Roby, turned into a tying touchdown when Trevor Siemian passed to Demaryius Thomas from 2 yards.Then, after the Saints defense held Denver to a 28-yard Brandon McManus field goal, Thomas fumbled again when he was leveled by defensive end Jared Cricks crushing blind-side hit . The Broncos took over at New Orleans 20 and again Denvers McManus converted, this time from 37 yards for a 23-17 lead.Brees could be seen rushing to Thomas side to see if the receiver was OK after Cricks crushing tackle. Brees also sounds intent on not allowing Thomas to dwell on his uncharacteristically poor performance.Were going to need him to make some plays down the stretch and we will, Brees said.

DENVER -- The Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned outfielder Yasiel Puig a day after he did not travel with the team. Chris Chelios Jersey .General manager Farhan Zaidi said Tuesday that Puig is expected to be assigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City and report on time, by this weekend.Puig was told by the team Monday to not join the Dodgers on their road trip, as he would be either traded or demoted. With the Dodgers unable to move the 25-year-old ahead of Mondays non-waiver trade deadline, he was sent down.The decision to send down Puig, a major leaguer since the 2013 season, came in conjunction with the Dodgers acquiring right fielder Josh Reddick from the Oakland Athletics on Monday. Pitcher Rich Hill?was acquired by the Dodgers in the same deal.The production from right field hasnt been at the same level it has been in past years so that was a spot we were looking at in particular, Zaidi said Tuesday in Colorado. Once we were able to complete the trade with Reddick, we evaluated different options. Were obviously still evaluating Yasiels health and whether he was a potential option to DL so we were talking through that. But ultimately we decided that move just made most sense with the roster we have and the way we plan to deploy our players and the lineups going forward.Reddick was immediately inserted into the Dodgers lineup Tuesday and placed in the cleanup spot. After completing his Dodgers debut -- going 0-for-4 in a 7-3 loss?--?Reddick has batted in the cleanup spot for the Dodgers exactly the same amount of times Puig has been there this season.Dave Roberts, in his first season as the Dodgers manager, made it a point to forge an early relationship with Puig, offering him a clean slate before spring training began. Four months into the season, Roberts seems to be having a harder time with Puig than he expected.Roberts was asked whether Puig, and the off-the-field issues that are attached, have taken more of his time than other players have. He had a one-word answer.Yes, he said.Was that unfair to the rest of the team?The goal, especially at this level as coaches and manager, time and focus should be distributed evenly, Roberts said. And I think Yasiel understands that. This is something that we expect him to understand is not punitive. Its for his growth, to become ultimately a better baseball player.Zaidi said a right-field platoon with Reddick was considered but that ultimately the club thought having Puig play every day in the minor leagues had the best chance of helping him sooner. And while no specifics were mentioned, Puigs off-the-field behavior was also in play.Our primary objective was really making the team better, Zaidi said. Thats why I talked about the production we got from right field. There are certainly things we think he can do better off the field, and those have been communicated to him. I dont want to elaborate on that further. There isnt really a point to that. But I believe he and his representation understand what were hoping happens moving forward.So will Puig play for the Dodgers ever again?I dont want to handicap that situation, Zaidi said. Like I said, it certainly is a possibility. Beyond that its just speculation.Information from ESPNs Doug Padilla was used in this report.Petr Mrazek Jersey .Y. -- Syracuse has turned up the defence at the right time all season, and when High Point threatened to pull off a monumental upset the second-ranked Orange did what they do best with their quick hands and savvy play. Danny DeKeyser Jersey .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. http://www.redwingshockeypro.com/authentic-riley-sheahan-red-wings-jersey/ . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Such is the juggernaut that is the U. Charles Harris Jersey .S. womens basketball team that there must have been something terribly wrong on Friday when, horror of horrors, it got off to a slow start against Canada, won by 30 points and scored less than 100.Earlier this week, the women were too good. On Friday, their 81-51 victory was almost a case of, What happened?Such is the supremacy of this team that Canada, one of the more formidable groups in the competition, was actually pretty pumped over the whole thing.We were really happy we were able to keep them under 100 and be the only one that [has done] that, said Natalie Achonwa, who plays for the Indiana Fever as the only Canadian player on an WNBA team.It was the 45th straight Olympic victory for the U.S., which is pursuing its sixth straight gold medal. But given the U.S. womens soccer teams loss to Sweden on Friday, anything is possible, right?Maybe not.The womens hoops team watched part of the soccer game before its contest versus Canada, and U.S. coach Geno Auriemma later related a conversation he once had with the legendary UConn womens soccer coach Len Tsantiris.We were talking once after a game, Auriemma said, and I asked him, So, what happened? And he said, We dominated the game. Dominated. We had 24 shots on goal. They had two. ... We lost, 1-0.Auriemma shook his head.See, I dont have to worry about that, he said. If we dominate a game that bad, were going to win. Thats a crazy game, a crazy game. I dont know how they do it.Even if Auriemmas team doesnt dominate, as it did in the first half, theyre still going to win -- ?and, on most occasions, win big.The Canadians were more physical than usual on defense and disciplined in their offensive sets.Some teams, their style of play isnt going to necessarily allow [100 points], Auriemma said. They maximize every shot clock opportunity, and they run their offense over and over and over.And we shot the ball lousy in the first half.If 48 percent is lousy, however, Canada was far lousier, connecting on just 1 of 10 shots in the second quarter, 6-of-19 in the third and 19-of-58 overall for 33 percent. Cordrea Tankersley Womens Jersey . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please. Cordrea Tankersley Dolphins Jersey . The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. http://www.jerseyshoptheofficialdolphins.com/Elite-Charles-Harris-Dolphins-Jersey/ . Once again Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) and I (@LynchOnSports) go head to head in our picks. Last weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 my #TeamLynch got the best of #TeamJC by a score of 9-6. Let us know which side youre on for UFC 167 use the hashtag #TeamLynch or #TeamJC on Twitter. LOS ANGELES -- After Clayton Kershaw had a follow-up examination on his sore back, the Los Angeles Dodgers said they remain unsure when the three-time NL Cy Young Award winner will return.Kershaw said after last Sundays loss at Pittsburgh that he felt back stiffness. He received an epidural injected and was placed on the 15-day disabled list after an examination by Dr. Robert Watkins revealed a mild disk herniation.We dont know much more than we did a few days ago, Dodgers President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman said Sunday. Everything thats happened in the three or four days since the epidural has been extremely positive. That being said, I think well know more in the next week. We just need to give it time past the epidural to get a sense of improvement, and then well go from there.Friedman is confident Kershaw will avoid surgery. The 28-year-old left-hander will undertake a five-step prrogram and start throwing at some point. Raekwon McMillan Youth Jersey. Obviously that will be a big first step, Friedman said.The program centers around strengthening Kershaws core muscle group.Whenever somebody has anything in the back, the core strengthening helps with the back in that process of when you start throwing, which obviously is what everybody cares about, Friedman said.Kershaw said Saturday that his back had not hurt when he pitched, but had been bothering him for an extended time. He said that it had been taking him longer and longer to get loose, and that until Monday he chalked it up to routine wear and tear.Unbeaten in his 10 previous starts, Kershaw (11-2, 1.79) had his second-worst outing of the year against the Pirates, giving up four runs and nine hits in six innings. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
