KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Le'Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers spent Sunday beating up on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Beating up the goal-post padding, too.

The Steelers' star running back churned out 179 yards and a touchdown in a performance reminiscent of January's playoff victory over Kansas City. And Antonio Brown made an acrobatic touchdown catch in the fourth quarter to help Pittsburgh hand the Chiefs a 19-13 loss — their first of the season.

" said Bell, who drew a flag for celebrating his score by throwing haymakers at the goal-post stanchion. "As a team,"The biggest thing for us is getting wins, we find ways to get wins."

The Chiefs (5-1) still had a chance after Brown's 51-yard reception made it 19-10,Womens Howie Long Jersey, moving quickly downfield and getting a 33-yard field goal from Harrison Butker.

Their defense forced a quick three-and-out, and Tyreek Hill's 32-yard punt return gave them the ball with 1:48 to go.

James Harrison sacked Alex Smith on third-and-10,But after the Steelers (4-2) gave up a first down, and the quarterback's incomplete pass on fourth down left the NFL with no unbeaten teams.

" said Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who will no doubt be questioned for going for it on fourth-and-2 at the Steelers 4 early in the fourth quarter,"We straightened a few things out the second half. That's how we got back in the game, rather than kicking a field goal to get within 12-6.

Smith's throw to the end zone fell incomplete and the Steelers took possession.

" Reid said. "I'm preaching to the team to stay aggressive without being stupid,Womens Leonard Williams Jersey,"My gut tells me what to do. I thought that was the right thing there,Womens Joe Namath Jersey, staying aggressive with it. We had a good play in our pocket that we felt good about. It didn't work out."

Very little worked out for the Chiefs on Sunday.

should've been an interception," Peters said. "It comes with the game of football. Can't do (anything) about it. ... We took an 'L,Womens Derek Carr Jersey,"The last little touchdown or whatever,' back to the drawing board."

The game in many ways resembled January's playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium, when Bell churned for 170 yards rushing and the Steelers' defense shut down the Chiefs in an 18-16 victory.

Their defensive dominance was even more impressive considering the circumstances: The Steelers allowed more than 200 yards rushing twice in the past three weeks, while Kansas City was averaging 32.8 points and 414.2 yards — and had just piled up 450 in a shootout victory over Houston.

OAKLAND,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, Calif. (AP) — This time the field goal went in for the Los Angeles Chargers, and it was the opponent wondering what went wrong on a key kick.

Nick Novak kicked a 32-yard field goal on the final play of the game and the Chargers took advantage of a key missed extra point by Giorgio Tavecchio after a bad snap to beat the Oakland Raiders 17-16 on Sunday.

The Chargers (2-4) had been done in by poor kicks this season,Womens Cam Newton Jersey, losing twice on misses by former kicker Younghoe Koo . Novak missed a 48-yard field goal in the first quarter, but delivered when it counted most.

"When you do your job well and help contribute to a win,Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, that 48-yarder I missed? That happens. I wish I would have made that. But more importantly, you've got to bounce back and make all those extra points, that's what you dream for, right?" Novak said "Shoot,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey, and continue to do my job."

It was the missed extra point by Tavecchio — after a high snap by Jon Condo early in the fourth quarter — that was the difference in a fourth straight loss by the Raiders (2-4).

"I have one job to do: snap the ball,Authentic Cam Newton Jersey," Condo said. "I didn't make it happen today and I feel bad. The rest of my teammates were out there doing their jobs and I have one job and couldn't do it. I couldn't come through today."

Philip Rivers took over at his 8 with 4:09 to play and used two long passes to Hunter Henry to move the Chargers into field-goal range. Five straight runs by Melvin Gordon and two kneeldowns moved the ball to the 14 and drained the clock,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey,setting the stage for Novak's winning kick.

where you go,Womens Walter Payton Jersey,"You can't treat it like a normal backed-up drive,Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey, 'All right, and see what happens,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, let's just try and get us a little bit of room and try to get a first down,'" Rivers said. "We got to go win the game."

The Raiders had taken the lead on a 47-yard end-around by Cordarrelle Patterson but that and the return of quarterback Derek Carr weren't enough to end this slide. Oakland last lost four in a row during an 0-10 start in 2014.

Carr, threw for just 171 yards and a touchdown. He also had two interceptions on miscommunications and mostly settled for short passes., who missed last week's game with a broken bone in his back

" Carr said. "I'm really frustrated. We work way too hard for that kind of stuff to happen.","That's the frustrating thing

Rivers went 25 for 36 for 268 yards with one touchdown. Gordon gained 150 yards from scrimmage and scored twice.

QUICK TURNAROUND

but Carr threw an incomplete pass. Rivers then drove the Chargers to the go-ahead score on a 6-yard pass to Gordon.,The Raiders appeared in good shape when Dexter McDonald forced a fumble by Tyrell Williams that was recovered by David Amerson and the offense crossed midfield looking to build on a three-point lead. Coach Jack Del Rio opted to go on fourth-and-2 from the 41

ROLLER-COASTER START

throwing an interception to Trevor Williams on his first pass of the game. The play didn't cost the Raiders because Novak missed that 48-yard field goal. Carr then rebounded in his next drive and capped it with a 23-yard TD pass to Michael Crabtree .,Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,Carr got off to a rough start in his return to the field

THIRD DOWNS

The Raiders' defensive issues on third down returned on a TD drive by the Chargers late in the first half. Rivers converted three third downs of at least 7 yards on the series and Los Angeles tied the game at 7 when Gordon leaped into the end zone on fourth down from the 1.

HOUSTON (AP) — Deshaun Watson has Houston’s offense running like never before.

A 33-17 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday gave them 30 or more points in four straight games for the first time in franchise history. It was Houston’s fourth straight game where the offense gained 340 yards or more.

But the Texans are 3-3 entering their bye this week, leaving plenty of room for improvement in the last 10 games as they chase a third straight playoff berth.

“We have a lot to work on,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey, but I think that it can be a lot better.”,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “I think the bye’s coming at a good time. I think it’s been decent

Tom Savage started Houston’s opener against Jacksonville before being benched at halftime of the loss. Watson,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, has gone 3-2 in his five starts since and has already put his mark on the offense.,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, the 12th overall pick in this year’s draft

His three touchdown passes Sunday gave him 15 this season, which is the most through the first six games by a rookie in NFL history. He’s also the first rookie in league history to throw three touchdown passes in three straight games.

“He’s a very confident guy,” O’Brien said. “He’s got a quiet confidence about himself. He’s just the same guy every day. He really believes in himself. He’s a very intelligent guy. He’s really never satisfied … he’s a great guy to coach. Just a really special kid and I think he’ll only get better and better.”

Watson said he’ll use the bye to study and rest a little so he can be better when the Texans visit the Seahawks on Oct. 29.

“I’m never complacent,” he said. “I’m always striving to be the best and striving to improve on my game.”

Receiver DeAndre Hopkins, raves about Watson every chance he gets. He isn’t surprised that the young QB has been so successful so early in his career., who has suffered through years of struggles at quarterback

“I expected that honestly,” Hopkins said. “From training camp when he came in, the way he handled himself in the film room. Even in training camp when he wasn’t getting reps with the ones, so nobody in this locker room was honestly surprised with the way he’s developed so far.”, he was still learning. He was still going over things talking about it to us when he got the opportunity, (and now) it’s presented itself

His performance has been helped by the work of receiver Will Fuller in the last three weeks. The second-year player missed the first three games after breaking his collarbone in training camp, but has caught five touchdown passes since his return after finishing with two last season. Fuller says he’s stronger than he was as a rookie and that he’s learned a lot in his second year in the system.

“Just playing smarter,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey, so I know a lot more about defenses and how they’re going to try to play. I think that’s the biggest thing. Playing smarter so I can play faster.”,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey,” Fuller said. “I feel like I say that a lot. It’s my second year

Watson,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, who joined the Texans after winning a national championship at Clemson last year, led by six to Hopkins., loves having so many weapons at his disposal. He has thrown touchdown passes to six players

“We are all on the same page, we’re all supporting each other. Those guys are making me better and making me look good,” Watson said. “We all support each other. We’re all rooting for each other, Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey,and it’s no selfishness. … We all just want to win and score points. So whoever gets open, depending on the scheme, so I appreciate them for getting open and catching the ball.”, what the defense is doing, and the play call

NASHVILLE,Womens Reuben Foster Jersey, deserving every bit of the attention., Tenn. (AP) — Wesley Woodyard squatted and folded his arms as his Tennessee teammates bowed in front of the veteran linebacker near midfield in celebration

sealing the Titans' 36-22 win Monday night over Indianapolis.,Woodyard had just forced Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett out of bounds shy of the first down marker on fourth-and-inches

It ended the Titans' 11-game skid to their AFC South rivals — the one tied for the longest active drought against one team in the NFL. Cleveland now has lone possession of that mark against Denver.

but this was definitely a must-win,"We feel like every game's a must-win, especially with the 11-game streak on the line," said Woodyard, who also had a team-high eight tackles and recovered a fumble. "We came in and answered the call."

The Titans (3-3) next head to winless Cleveland for a chance to move above .500 before their bye.

Still waiting for Andrew Luck, and coach Chuck Pagano had to answer for another head-scratching finish this week. His Colts led 19-15 going into the fourth only to be outscored 21-3., the Colts (2-4) have yet to beat a team with a win this season. Indianapolis has been outscored 85-22 in fourth quarters

" Pagano said.,"We have to figure it out

Here are some things to know about the Colts and Titans:

MARCUS MARIOTA

Mariota played with a strained left hamstring that kept him out of last week's loss in Miami, but Mariota shuffled around the pocket to throw for a season-high 306 yards. His 53-yard touchdown with 5:29 left to a wide-open Taywan Taylor put the Titans ahead to stay., and the Titans quarterback was careful about it. The Colts sacked him once and hit him six times

" Titans running back Derrick Henry said. "To come out there at not even 100 percent,"He's a tough guy,Womens Amari Cooper Jersey, to come out here and play and lead us to a win against a good division opponent. All credit goes to him. That shows what type of leader he is, what type of guy he is and how great he is.

SMASH MOUTH

The Titans ran for 168 yards with Henry turning in his best game yet in the NFL. He ran 19 times for 131 yards and provided the final margin by running 72 yards for a TD inside the final minute.

"My goal was to get a first down,Authentic Joe Montana Jersey, so if we get the first down," Henry said. "We knew they were out of timeouts,Womens Jerry Rice Jersey,and I'm like,Womens Sean Taylor Jersey, that ends the game. But when I got past the safety, I saw grass, 'I've got to go for it.'"

CONTAINING HILTON

limiting the Colts' star receiver to a single catch for 19 yards. The three-time Pro Bowl selection had 12 catches for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' two victories over the Titans last season.,Womens Joe Montana Jersey,The Titans finally figured out how to slow down T.Y. Hilton

he can change the game,"He's a game-wrecker," Titans coach Mike Mularkey said. "Whatever we can do to take him out of the game, we're going to do. If it was taking two of our guys to cover him, we were going to do that."

SUCCOP'S RECORD STREAK

Titans kicker Ryan Succop set an NFL record by making his 47th straight field-goal attempt from inside 50 yards. He then made four more field goals from that distance to extend his streak to 51. Succop had been tied coming into the game for the NFL record with Atlanta's Matt Bryant,Authentic Sean Taylor Jersey, 40 and 23 yards out.,Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey, who made 46 straight kicks from inside 50 yards from 2013-15. Succop made two 48-yarders and also connected from 32

"I'm so humbled,Authentic Marshawn Lynch Jersey," Succop said.,Womens Marshawn Lynch Jersey, and I feel so blessed

AFC SOUTH

The Colts find themselves looking up at the rest of the division,Authentic Jerry Rice Jersey," Mularkey said. "No other ultimatum. That was it. Get the win.",Authentic Reuben Foster Jersey, and the Titans now are tied with Jacksonville and Houston at 3-3 with a 2-1 mark in the division that matches their win total for all of last season. "That was the whole objective to get a division win

Cool,Authentic Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, calm and collected. A cliché, but also an accurate depiction of San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard. Who better to tell you about Beathard's demeanor than his college teammate George Kittle.

he came across as a guy that just leads. That’s just who he is as a person,“From the very first day I met CJ,” Kittle said. “He’s very calm and confident at all times. I fully believe the second he takes the field with us,Womens Adam Thielen Jersey, he’s going to come across as a leader. And that’s just what he does.”

The duo played a key role in Iowa's 12-2 record in 2015 that resulted in a Big Ten Championship and a berth in the Rose Bowl. Fast forward to 2017 and the former Hawkeyes are now starting in the same NFL offense. Beathard's promising debut in Week 6 has earned the rookie the 49ers starting job moving forward.

” Shanahan said. “Definitely at the time I thought he gave us best chance to win,“I was excited with how he played, and I think that going forward,Womens Golden Tate III Jersey, also.”

Beathard ignited the 49ers offense and erased the 17-0 deficit he inherited. The 49ers ultimately fell short but Beathard's 245 passing yards and one touchdown in just over two quarters of playing time were impressive nonetheless.,Authentic Adam Thielen Jersey,After replacing Brian Hoyer in the second quarter against the Washington Redskins

” Beathard said. “Hopefully I’ve done a little bit of that throughout my time being here. I’m just trying to gain more of that respect from all the guys.”,Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey,“I think the big thing is going out there and performing and showing and earning these guys’ respect

Beathard managed to spread the ball around on offense and connected with eight different receivers against the Redskins. A full week of preparation heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys will give the rookie a chance to build a stronger rapport with the first-team offense.

It will be crucial that Beathard continues to build rapport with San Francisco's top receivers Pierre Gar?on and Marquise Goodwin.

“He’s a really focused guy. He loves football more than really almost anything in this life,” Kittle said of Beathard. “He’s taken this job seriously as Brian’s backup, and he was ready to go. He didn’t take very many starting reps last week and he was ready. I just think with all of the reps (this week) he’ll be good to go.”

Beathard has already proven the game isn’t too big for him. Whether a rookie or a tenured veteran,Authentic Calais Campbell Jersey, that's a qualities that Shanahan looks for in a leader. Through two and a half NFL quarters, the mild-mannered third-round pick has already earned the respect of his 49ers teammates.

“(At Iowa) CJ was our team captain. He was our leader. That’s just how he carries himself all the time.” Kittle said. “Guys are just really attracted to the way he leads and that’s why he’s so good at it.”

Only time will tell if Beathard is the long-term solution under center for San Francisco. All we know right now is that Beathard has been given the reins to the 49ers offense and will have every opportunity to show he's capable of being an NFL starter.

“I’m really just trying to take it one day,Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey, one week at a time. I’m not looking that far ahead,Womens Calais Campbell Jersey,” Beathard said. “Right now my focus is on today’s practice and geared towards beating the Cowboys and doing the best we can to get better and improve.”

The NFL Referees Association is fighting back against what it says are allegations of bias in officiating.

The NFLRA sent out a statement about "false reports,Authentic Julio Jones Jersey, complaints of officiating bias." The first line refers to "media reports alleging bias in officiating."

What they could be referring to is a petition on change.org,Womens Devonta Freeman Jersey, started by a Philadelphia Eagles fan following last week's game against the Carolina Panthers. Will Philbrick is trying to get 75,Authentic LeSean McCoy Jersey,000 signatures on the petition to keep referee Pete Morelli from officiating another game involving the Eagles,Womens LeSean McCoy Jersey, and he's closing in on that number.

“NFL Referee Pete Morelli has a clear and statistically obvious bias against the Philadelphia Eagles,” Philbrick wrote on the page. “Over the last four games that he has officiated that the Eagles were playing in,Womens Julio Jones Jersey, the Eagles were flagged a total of 40 times for 396 yards,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, while the Eagles opponent in those games were flagged a mere 8 times for 74 yards. This is unacceptable and puts the Philadelphia Eagles at a disadvantage. Preventing Morelli from refereeing Eagles games will result in a more trustworthy and honest NFL. This will benefit the entire league and keep all claims of conspiracy to a normal level.”

The NFLRA points out in the statement that officiating crews are made up of different officials each season and that the "attempts to sensationalize statistics and create click-bait headlines lack important context."

“Claims like these demonstrate a fundamental lack of knowledge about NFL officiating,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey,” NFLRA Executive Director Scott Green said in the statement. “NFL officials are graded on every call made in every game. Missing a single one can hurt his or her ranking and may be the difference between working in the postseason or not.”

Philadelphia won the game that seemed to push Philbrick to start the petition,Authentic Christian McCaffrey Jersey, 28-23 against the Carolina Panthers last Thursday. But the Eagles were penalized 10 times for 126 yards and the Panthers once for 1 yard.

“The passion of NFL fans and teams are a big part of what makes the game so great,Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey,” Green said. “However, Authentic Devonta Freeman Jersey,it’s no excuse for the irresponsible and baseless claims we’ve seen lately. NFL officials are committed to upholding the integrity of the game and do so every week.”

Mich. (AP) -- Matthew Stafford simply stood on the field,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, ALLEN PARK, letting Jake Rudock take snaps at the Detroit Lions' only practice during their bye week.

Stafford's body has taken a beating recently. He has been sacked 17 times in the past three games, leaving him with an ailing right ankle and sore ribs.

Stafford needs a break this week. And,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey, he's not alone.

The idle Lions (3-3) went limping into Week 7,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey, feeling fortunate a slew of players will have a chance to help their banged-up bodies bounce back.

'' tight end Eric Ebron said. ''It just exploded in here with a number of injuries. It's not good,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, but it couldn't have come at a better time for us,''It's a bit early,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, but it gives us enough time to get healthy.''

Golden Tate, the Lions lost their best receiver,In a 52-38 loss at New Orleans , with a shoulder injury that might be a long-term problem for him and the team.

one of the top players on defense,Safety Glover Quin, left the game against the Saints with a concussion. That may lead to Quin missing a game for the first time since 2009 when Detroit resumes its season the night of Oct. 29 at home against Pittsburgh.

One starter on the offensive line, left the game with an ankle injury. Ankle injuries also slowed or sent the team's starting tackles, Emmett Cleary, guard T.J. Lang, was a late scratch at New Orleans with a bad back. Lang's replacement, Rick Wagner and Greg Robinson, to the sideline against the Saints.

Help may be on the way to bolster both lines and special teams.

who has been out since having surgery on his right shoulder last summer,Taylor Decker, might return to practice next week.

That would move Decker a step closer to starting at left tackle to protect Stafford much better than Robinson has so far.

Defensive tackle Khyri Thornton is eligible to return from his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Thornton would be a welcome addition because defensive tackle Haloti Ngata is out for the season with an elbow injury.

At Tuesday's practice, standout punter Sam Martin was kicking for the first time this season after being removed from the reserve/non-football injury list with an ankle injury.

So, what does Detroit want to accomplish during its bye week?

''Get healthy,'' Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. ''That's going to be the primary focus,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey, that's the No. 1 thing,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey,but then obviously there's some little things that we can work on. And,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, we got a lot of those.''

putting them ahead of just three teams in the league. Defenses don't have to respect Detroit's running game,The Lions are averaging just 84 yards rushing, allowing them to attack a shaky line to get to Stafford.

And when the Saints didn't sack Stafford, they were getting hands on a lot of throws near the line and they were credited with 16 passes defended.

'' guard Graham Glasgow said. ''But if we can fix it,''I've never really seen anything like that, we're going to work on it.''

though,Stafford, was largely to blame for the most recent loss because he threw three interceptions - after going four games without a pick - and lost two fumbles against the Saints.

As bad as he and the Lions looked, they were resilient enough to have the ball trailing by just seven points with five-plus minutes left in the game.

Tate was ruled just short of the end zone on a review,Detroit's comeback fell short and the setback was the team's third loss in a four-game stretch. In the first loss, reversing the call on the field and leading to a 10-second runoff that allowed Atlanta to hold on for a 30-26 victory.

or a few seconds,The Lions were less than 1 yard, away from a 3-0 start after opening with wins over Arizona and against the New York Giants on the road.

Detroit is 3-3 and a game behind the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings,Instead, who lost Oct. 1 to the Lions at home.

''We lost some games that we could've won,'' safety Tavon Wilson said. ''But we've got to figure out how to play better and not be down 35 points in the third quarter and find a way to get into the end zone instead of being down inside the 1.''

The New Jersey Devils have had a hot start to the new season. Despite being written off by many coming into the season,Authentic Aaron Ekblad jersey, they came into Thursday evening tied for the lead in the Metropolitan Division with a 5-1-0 record.

Nico Hischier. While other young assets like Will Butcher took the stage for New Jersey,And the Devils have done so with just four assists from their No. 1 overall pick from this year,Authentic Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, Hischier was quietly still waiting for his first career NHL goal.

Hischier netted not just his first NHL goal,adidas Jordan Eberle jersey,Within the first six minutes of puck drop against the Ottawa Senators,adidas Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, but his first two career goals from essentially the same spot on the ice.

Hischier’s first,Authentic Connor McDavid jersey, was the sweetest of the bunch. Drew Stafford correctly heard Hischier tap his stick in front of the net before the veteran passed to the wide open rookie in front. From there, of course, it was a quick shot that went bar down off the crossbar for the score.

After Kyle Turris tied the game for the Senators 27 seconds later on the power play, adidas Aaron Ekblad jersey,Hischier would not be denied again.

Less than two minutes after his first NHL goal,Authentic Jordan Eberle jersey,Hischier smartly followed up the play and crashed Craig Anderson’s net. Hischier got his second after he roofed the puck up and over Anderson’s pad.

The goal was challenged by Ottawa for goaltender interference,adidas Vincent Trocheck jersey, but Hischier did everything right by avoiding Anderson’s pad by just playing the puck.

It must feel good for Hischier to get his first — and second! — NHL goals out of the way after being silenced for six games. And there will surely be more to come as the season rolls along,adidas Connor McDavid jersey,.

Running back Marshawn Lynch formally appealed his one-game suspension on Monday afternoon.

The Raiders hope to hear a ruling by Tuesday.

"I think we expect to hear something early in the week,Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey, hopefully by tomorrow,[url=http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/cam-newton-jersey-authentic]Authentic Cam Newton

Jersey[/url]," head coach Jack Del Rio said in a Monday press conference. "(It) would be the fairest thing so that the team can prepare."

That's the expectation,Womens Luke Kuechly Jersey, according to an ESPN report. The

Raiders should know by Tuesday whether Lynch's suspension for unsportsmanlike conduct will stand.

The suspension stems from a Thursday night incident where he left the sidelines to join an on-field fracas involving Raiders offensive linemen and Kansas City cornerback

Marcus Peters. The third-year pro was penalized for a late hit on Raiders quarterback Derek Carr his linemen didn't take kindly.

Peters and Lynch are extremely close friends and Oakland natives,[url=http://www.bearsfootballauthentics.com/mitchell-trubisky-jersey-authentic]Womens Mitchell Trubiskyn

Jersey[/url], and Lynch instinctively went out to protect someone he views as family. He inadvertently grabbed an official by the jersey and let go shortly after. He was

flagged and ejected by rule.

He missed most of Thursday's 31-30 victory over the Chiefs, and the NFL suspended him one game without pay on Friday. That could cost Lynch a $79,

Authentic Jordan Howard Jersey,411 game check and a $31,250

per-game roster bonus.

ESPN reports that Peters by phone spoke at Lynch's appeal hearing, where the running back's team also cited precedent of others contacting an official without getting

suspended. Leaving the sideline, however, may not help his appeal.

Del Rio said he hadn't spoken with Lynch since the ejection.

"I said the other night I was disappointed that we had a player leave the bench,Womens Cam Newton Jersey," Del Rio said. "It's something we talk about – don't leave the bench area."

The Raiders ran with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington after Lynch's ejection,Authentic Luke Kuechly Jersey,

Authentic Walter Payton Jersey, and combined for 67 yards

and a touchdown on 18 carries. The pair with shoulder a rushing load Sunday at Buffalo if Lynch is unavailable.

they catch the ball a little easier,Womens Jordan Howard Jersey,"They don't have the

size and the power but they have a little more quickness, better route-runners, things like so," Del Rio said. "So, if you're playing a little more wide open,Womens Walter Payton Jersey, in some

respects they give you a little more juice. Marshawn give you the power back when you want to finish people and in tough situations. Those guys give you more than a change

of pace."

The New York Rangers needed nine games to find their second win of the season.

On Monday,Authentic Vincent Trocheck jersey, the Rangers will attempt to win consecutive games for the first time this season when they host the San Jose Sharks.

The Rangers (2-5-2) snapped a five-game losing streak (or extended their points streak to three games, depending on the perspective) with a 4-2 win against the Nashville Predators on Saturday afternoon.

Three players -- Chris Kreider,Authentic Connor McDavid jersey, Jesper Fast and Jimmy Vesey -- finally scored their first goals of the season and now the Rangers are looking to build on a win over the final two games of this six-game homestand.

" Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said. "You can do so many good things to try to get confidence and try to get a good feeling in here,"We talked about it the last couple of games -- we were one play away from getting a win, but it in the end it comes down to winning games.

we get the two points here,adidas Jordan Eberle jersey,"But this was coming. We've had a couple of games now where we've been close and it was just a matter of time. Finally,Authentic Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, take a deep breath and then we go after another two points on Monday."

The Rangers are hardly in a position to take anyone lightly but the Sharks (3-4-0) have struggled to find consistency this season and will be playing a third road game in four nights when they touch the ice at Madison Square Garden. They are coming off a 5-3 loss to the Islanders in Brooklyn that saw them allow three goals in the third period.

The Sharks also have their share of players off to slow starts. Mikkel Boedker has just one goal in seven games while defenseman Brent Burns has zero goals in seven games after scoring 29 last season on the way to a Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman. He had just two points in six games before picking up two assists against the Islanders.

"I'm not worried about it at all,adidas Aaron Ekblad jersey," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer told the San Jose Mercury News. "He's getting some really good looks. They're going to go in eventually. We're only seven games in."

"He wants to score and I'm sure he feels some pressure from the numbers he put up last year,adidas Vincent Trocheck jersey," Sharks center Logan Couture told the Mercury News. "But he made some great looks and the puck's eventually going to start to go in for him."

The Rangers will get a road-weary Sharks team but they will have to avoid a letdown after a hard-fought win.

especially in the last three games. The process was there,"I don't think relief is the right word,adidas Ryan Nugent-Hopkins jersey, obviously we felt we deserved a better outcome," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said after his team beat the Predators. "I mean,Authentic Jordan Eberle jersey, the work was there."

and we haven't been doing that a lot,adidas Connor McDavid jersey,"You definitely enjoy winning,Authentic Aaron Ekblad jersey," Hayes told the New York Post. "Hopefully this is a springboard to a lot more."

Cornelius Washington was stunned to learn minutes before inactives were due that he wasn't going to play in the Detroit Lions' Week 6 loss to the New Orleans Saints, but the veteran defensive end said he has not sought out the reason behind his benching.

speaking to reporters Monday for the first time since he was a surprise inactive against the Saints,Washington, said he feels like he's still in the good graces of Lions coach Jim Caldwell and his staff.

" he said. "I mean,"I feel like I am, do you know something I don’t know?"

me, Washington said, "Yeah,Told by a reporter that he was stunned by the benching,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey, too."

and I assume it was very last minute. I don’t know any more than that,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey,"I got that news a few minutes before we had to go out," he said.

A rotational defensive end who made just four tackles in the Lions' first five games,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, Washington guessed that his benching "probably had something to do with our O-line situation."

But that explanation doesn't hold weight.

a 52-38 Lions loss,The Lions de-activated starting right guard T.J. Lang because of a back injury 90 minutes before the game, but they kept only their normal seven offensive linemen active and played backup defensive linemen George Johnson and Caraun Reid over Washington.

The Lions cut both Johnson and Reid last week.

"I don't make those decisions," Washington said. "I just work here."

625 in per-game roster bonuses, who signed a two-year, $5.825 million deal with the Lions this off-season that includes $15,Washington, said he was not given any indication during the week that he would not play against the Saints.

"I don’t know what the issue was, Washington said,Asked if he'll use the benching as motivation to work harder in practice, so I don’t know what problem to fix if there is a problem to fix."

" he said. "I mean,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey, I kind of wish I knew more of what was going on, but I’m not going to sit and speculate about it,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey,"I mean,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey,everything is good right now."

Lions coach Jim Caldwell said after the game that Washington's benching was not discipline- or injury-related,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, but he declined to go into detail about why Washington was benched.

The Saints ran for a season-high 193 yards in the game and had success with outside runs.

Washington said that he's played "alright" this year,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, but that the team needs to be better against the run as a whole.

but I’ve done pretty good,"I don’t feel like I’ve been the best in certain areas," he said. "I’ve had a solid showing so far."

SANTA CLARA,Authentic John Ross Jersey, CALIF.

Before the 49ers created one of the NFL's greatest dynasties,Womens A.J. Green Jersey, they were at the bottom of the NFL barrel.

San Francisco won its first Super Bowl in 1981,Authentic Jim Brown Jersey, two years after going 2-14 in Bill Walsh's first season as coach. That team began 0-7,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, which first-year coach Kyle Shanahan's club matched with its 40-10 loss Sunday to the Cowboys.

The night before the game, Shanahan talked to his players and pointed to that valley in franchise history and the decade-long peak that followed, which included four Super Bowls.

"I talked to (the team) about how they didn't just get to that '81 season,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey," Shanahan said Monday. "I think they went through a lot of stuff in those two years prior to that, some hard work,Womens John Ross Jersey, and had to grind out and find out the types of people that coach Walsh wanted on that team. I think they went through a lot of adversity to get to that '81 team. I kind of made some comparisons to that with what we're going through right now."

Sunday's 30-point blowout was unlike the previous six losses. The 49ers became the first team in NFL history to lose five straight games by three points or fewer. That was a silver lining for a team focused on building for the future. Shanahan said the performance against Dallas was San Francisco's worst of the year,Authentic A.J. Green Jersey,and it showed up in the box score.

The Cowboys rumbled to 501 yards of offense while Ezekiel Elliott accounted for 219 from scrimmage (147 rushing and 72 receiving) along with three touchdowns. The 49ers managed just 290 yards in rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard's first start.

Despite his team's struggles,Womens DeShone Kizer Jersey, Shanahan has tried instilling in his players that they can replicate the rise of Walsh's team.

"I'd like to feel we're ahead of them. We don't have the record to show for it," Shanahan said. "But I just try to put it into perspective for people that no matter how tough things are, no matter how bad people say they are,Authentic DeShone Kizer Jersey, that you got to be strong minded, you got to know where you're going and what it's going to take to get there. And just because it's hard on your way there,Womens Jim Brown Jersey, doesn't mean you can't stop believing in what you think's important and working at it every day. I think they were a perfect example of a team that did that."

The 49ers next play the NFC East-leading Eagles in their fourth road game in five weeks. They expect to have rookie linebacker Reuben Foster available after he left Sunday's game with a rib injury. Tests confirmed that Foster didn't break any ribs, Shanahan said.

The team might be without defensive back K'Waun Williams (quad) and right guard Brandon Fusco (biceps). Right tackle Trent Brown will begin the week in the concussion protocol after leaving Sunday's game in the second half.

COSTA MESA,Authentic Adam Thielen Jersey, Calif. (AP) -- Rookie Dan Feeney has been dreaming of this moment his entire life, maybe even since he was 6 years old and first saw quarterback Tom Brady in a New England Patriots uniform.

Flash forward 18 years and the Los Angeles Chargers guard is scheduled to make his first NFL start on Sunday - against Brady and the Patriots.

'' Feeney said.,''It is definitely a little crazy

where he was a four-year starter and two-time All-American.,Authentic Golden Tate III Jersey,Feeney was selected in the third round of the draft out of Indiana

but starting left guard Matt Slauson injured his biceps last Sunday against the Broncos. Slauson will have surgery and is out for the season.,He was unable to win a starting job in camp

So now the position falls to Feeney,Womens Calais Campbell Jersey, all 6 foot 4 and 310 pounds of him.

The Chargers had been working him into the past few games,Authentic Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, and he played much of the second half last Sunday after Slauson got hurt.

''When we started playing him a couple weeks ago and he went into games,'' Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. ''We knew that he could play and wanted to get him more involved. And now he's starting.'', there was no drop-off

Of course he's not pleased by the way he got the opportunity. It was the veteran Slauson who largely helped Feeney with his transition to the NFL.

''Slauson's been a big mentor for me and obviously it's a shame what happened to him,'' Feeney said.

''There's always something to work on. Having these older guys teach me is one of the biggest things. There aren't too many situations Slauson hasn't been through.''

Feeney was thought to be an accomplished run blocker when he first arrived to camp. It is his pass blocking that has been a focus by the Chargers.

The Patriots know well a rookie will be making his first start Sunday and are expected to test him immediately. Slauson figures it comes with the territory.

''That's the nature of the game,'' he said. ''That's how it goes. You see some kind of weakness, and make them not right.'', you try to attack it. Obviously you have to expect it and be ready for it and prepare for it

Offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt thinks the Chargers have prepared Feeney as best they can.

''He's been very professional in his preparation the whole year, just preparing him for a situation where this could happen.,Womens Golden Tate III Jersey,'' Whisenhunt said. ''I like that (offensive line) coach Pat Meyer and coach Lynn have been working him in and he's gotten some snaps in games

''Finishing off the game (Sunday) the way he did,Authentic Calais Campbell Jersey, he played well. Now it's the next challenge for him,Womens Adam Thielen Jersey, feel comfortable with him because of what he's done.'',Womens Ryan Kerrigan Jersey, which is having to start. We feel good about it

For Feeney - who played football and volleyball at Sandburg High School in Orland Park, Ill. - it is the culmination of a long dream. Maybe just not one he envisioned happening against the defending Super Bowl champions with Brady still at the quarterback.

''At the end of the day we are just out there playing football, playing the game we loved as a little kid, but at the same time you have a job to do and people relying on you.'','' Feeney said. ''It definitely hits you
