a big reason for the jump from corse178's blog

One disastrous play that created a most awkward of beginnings, and defined the Panthers 40-7 blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks.We didnt lose this game because of a tie, Newton said. It was a lot of execution errors. Including a lot of things where we had our opportunities and we failed at it.The Panthers first offensive play ended up being a pass by Derek Anderson that deflected off Mike Tolberts hands and into the arms of linebacker Mike Morgan, but that play didnt cost Carolina the game. The turnover only led to a field goal for Seattle, but it was the start of an otherwise forgettable performance by the Panthers that provided another blow to the dwindling playoff hopes of the reigning NFC champions.The bigger culprit was the 240 yards rushing allowed by the Panthers defense and Carolinas inability to finish drives in Seattle territory. Thats what turned the seventh meeting in the past five years between the teams into a laugher for the Seahawks.We just didnt give ourselves the chance. Thats the disappointment, Rivera said. We had some opportunities. We missed some plays. Probably the toughest thing is the lack of discipline and being where youre supposed to be.But the flap about the tie and Newtons one-play benching became an overbearing cloud hanging over Carolinas performance.I made the decision not to start him after I learned of the infraction, Rivera said. It was going to be one series. I didnt anticipate the series lasting one play.Newton was punished because he did not have a necktie for the team flight to Seattle. The Panthers spent the past week in the Bay Area following their game at Oakland and made the trip up the West Coast on Friday.Newton said he realized he hadnt packed a shirt and tie just before the buses left to take the team to their flight.We discussed it internally. Me and coach, were on the same page, I feel good about it, Newton said. I wore a similar outfit like this before and nothing was done. But he has rules in place and we have to abide by them and no person is greater than the next person. It is what it is.Some teammates, though, didnt realize the situation until the Panthers took the field and Anderson was calling the first play. Right tackle Trai Turner, playing the position for the first time since high school, said he didnt know what was going on until the opening play.Coach already addressed it. Im not going to talk any more about it, Anderson said. Its over with, we addressed it as a team and were going to move on from it.Newton missed just one play, but was also just 14-of-32 passing for 182 yards and one touchdown. After pulling within 10-7 in the second quarter, Carolina let Seattle score the final 30 points.Newton agreed he believed he was made an example of with the punishment, but did not express disagreement with Riveras decision.I think there was a lack of communication on my part, Newton said. I think I have to be accountable to know certain things.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max Womens Blue/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. The incident occurred at 19:56 of the second period of the Kings 4-2 road win over Edmonton on Sunday.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Watching cornerback Jalen Ramsey knock down a pass in the final minute against Chicago was nothing new for the Jacksonville Jaguars.They see it nearly every Friday -- in walkthrough.Blake Bortles has even stopped throwing Ramseys way during the slow-motion period, tired of Ramsey swatting away ever lob pass in a session designed for completions.I never want to get a ball caught on me wherever, whenever, Ramsey said Monday, a day after a 17-16 victory at the Bears. Like if someone threw a ball right now in the locker room, Id probably try to bat it down. Its just a mindset.It proved to be a winning attitude Sunday.Ramsey made a diving deflection on a fourth-and-10 pass to Alshon Jeffery, a game-sealing play that was the latest and greatest for Jacksonvilles remarkable rookie. Jeffery caught six passes for 90 yards against Ramsey in the first half, but had just one reception for three yards after the break.This is what I asked for, Ramsey said. I wouldnt want it any other way. I want to go up against the best and not only make a name for myself, but I feel like when I go up against the best and I do well, that can help the whole defense.Shutting down a No. 1 threat or a No. 1 option helps other guys make plays.Ramsey, the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft, has quickly become Jacksonvilles top cornerback and could be one of the best in the league by the end of the season. He kept Green Bays Jordy Nelson in check in the season opener. He frustrated Baltimores Steve Smith last month. He held Indianapolis T.Y. Hilton to 42 yards receiving in London earlier this month.And he was at his best in the second half against Jeffery, especially on Chicagos final play.Ramsey remembered what he had heard all week: that the Bears failed to get Jeffery the ball on their final play against the Colts last week. So he figured quarterback Brian Hoyer would be looking for Jeffery this time around.I knew it was coming. I knew they were goiing to Alshon. Nike Air Max Womens On Sale/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Period. I knew it, Ramsey said.They did, and Ramsey was ready. He undercut the dig route, batted the ball away and started Jacksonvilles celebration. It was just the third time in franchise history the Jaguars (2-3) won a game in which they trailed by double digits in the fourth quarter.As great as the final 15 minutes were for Jacksonville, the first three quarters showed the team still has plenty to work on before hosting the Oakland Raiders (4-2) on Sunday:-Bortles, who threw his seventh interception of the season and also fumbled, has to limit turnovers . He also has to find a way to get receiver Allen Robinson and tight end Julius Thomas more involved.-The Jaguars, last in the NFL in rushing, have to do something to improve their ground game .I cant argue with the run game, coach Gus Bradley said. Its not coming along. Some of the same things are popping up. It all comes back to why arent we playing fast? It doesnt look to me that when were out there the offensive line, tight ends and everybody, were executing.It comes down to execution, technique, but theres just not a certain speed or urgency in our play. Whether its too complicated, something is holding us back from playing as aggressively as we need to in the run game. Thats where our attention is now. How do we get this fixed?The Jaguars have made a significant turnaround on the defensive side of the ball, moving from 24th in yards in 2015 to eighth this year.Ramsey, who likely will shadow Amari Cooper this week, has been a big reason for the jump.He doesnt want to lose in checkers, defensive coordinator Todd Wash said. I think thats one of the things that is going to make him a special player throughout his career is how competitive he is.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
