Browns Game Jerseys
In the midst of a tight playoff race Cheap Uchenna Nwosu Jersey , the Anaheim Ducks showed determination in a come-from-behind win Sunday night.
Hampus Lindholm scored 1:21 into overtime to lift the Ducks over the Edmonton Oilers 5-4. Adam Henrique had two goals and Josh Manson and Corey Perry also scored for the Ducks, who are on a 5-0-1 streak.
”At the end of the day, it was more about every guy looking at themselves in the mirror,” Lindholm said. ”It started with us (defense) really skating the puck. We talked about it before the game and we really did it.
”As soon as our D start moving pucks, we help our forwards out a lot and I think that creates a lot of offence for us and that’s something we have to keep doing more.”
Connor McDavid, Ty Rattie, Leon Draisaitl and Ethan Bear scored for the Oilers, who ended a three-game winning streak.
”I give them credit,” Oilers goalie Cam Talbot said. ”They needed the points, and they came out in the third. They wanted it more in the third and we got away from what made us successful in the first two periods.”

Edmonton surged back on a power play when McDavid set up Bear for his first career goal.
”It was a really good feeling and at the same time a big sigh of relief,” Bear said. ”It is something you dream about your whole life. To get that first one, it feels really good.”

Between wrist surgery, signing a $54 million contract and nearly getting robbed, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had quite the start to the offseason.
His next phase probably won’t create as much buzz, but it’s much more important to the team’s success in 2018.
Bortles opened organized team activities Tuesday behind a revamped offensive line and with three new passing targets – all part of a plan to improve an offense that featured the league’s top rushing attack last season.
”I have always believed that when your quarterback is ahead of everyone, and the rest of the offense has to catch up Browns Game Jerseys , that is a pretty good thing,” coach Doug Marrone said. ”You don’t want the quarterback trying to catch up to the rest of the offensive players. I think that Blake is in a good spot as far as what he knows of the offense, what we want to do. It’s just another year.
”I think that’s why you see those quarterbacks that stay in these systems for a long period of time and play for a long period of time that do such a good job.”
Bortles threw for 3,687 yards, with 21 touchdowns and a career-low 13 interceptions in 2017. He was at his best in the postseason, throwing for 594 yards and three scores without a turnover.
Interceptions and fumbles were among Bortles’ biggest faults during his first three years in the league. He limited them down the stretch last season and eliminated them in the playoffs, helping the Jaguars reach the AFC championship game.
”You want to have that every game,” said Bortles, who had surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his right wrist in late January. ”Just wanting to make sure that no matter what I did I gave us a chance to win. I knew that if I didn’t turn the ball over we’re going to have a chance to win every game. That should be and it is my mindset every single game we play. I think it was only heightened in the playoffs to make sure I wasn’t the reason we couldn’t win the game.”
The Jaguars rewarded Bortles with a three-year contract that included $26.5 million guaranteed, making him the team’s starter for at least the next two seasons.
”The contract stuff doesn’t really change anything about how I think or how I approach every day Youth Ryan Switzer Jersey ,” he said.
The biggest difference, he said, is having continuity. The Jaguars returned their entire coaching staff, giving Bortles and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett a solid foundation to start from during OTAs.
”We talked about it this morning: Kind of taking it to the next level,” said Bortles, who didn’t have the freedom to audible early last season. ”He kind of gave me the green light to go ahead … as far as what you’re doing versus all the different looks and not just running the play called, (but) getting yourself in the best play possible.”
Bortles will have a much different supporting cast to work with in 2018.
Donte Moncrief and rookie DJ Chark replaced receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins stepped in for longtime starter Marcedes Lewis.
Moncrief and Chark are expected to bring more speed to Jacksonville’s offense, which coaches are counting on to help loosen up defenses and create more room for bruising running back Leonard Fournette. The addition of All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell should help, too.
Bortles will use the next few months to build a rapport with those newcomers. If it includes any dinners Customized New York Giants Jerseys , Bortles probably will be sure to lock his truck.
Bortles had his wallet stolen and pickup truck nearly hijacked earlier this month from teammate Brandon Linder’s driveway during an offensive line dinner. An 18-year-old Jacksonville man was arrested and charged with auto theft, auto burglary and trespassing.
Bortles left his keys inside his unlocked truck, but other vehicles parked around it prevented the man from driving away.
”He checked my truck out a little bit and left it nice and clean for me,” joked Bortles, who has since teamed up with local police to help prevent automobile burglaries. ”It was all right. … Glad to be back playing football, running around. It feels good to kind of be back to some familiarity.”
