|ST. Jeroen Zoet Jersey . LOUIS - Rodney McLeod lowered the boom, legally, with a perfectly timed, shoulder-to-shoulder hit on Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.The pass breakup on a deep sideline route sent Sanders off to be examined for concussion-like symptoms, but that wasnt the point. The St. Louis Rams hopes for a late-season rally rest on a defence thats been making its presence felt more and more.Thatll definitely go down as one of my best hits ever, McLeod said. Very great play by me, and Im glad to see Sanders is OK.Coach Jeff Fisher congratulated McLeod after the hit in the third quarter and protested an unnecessary roughness penalty then, after the game, and again the day after the Rams (4- won 22-7. McLeod had a number of nice hits in that game and, perhaps with an assist from the coach, none of them was costly.I think theyve already passed out all the fines and nothing came in my locker, McLeod said. When you go back and review the tape, I think you can see I levelled my shoulder and not my helmet. I think the league made a great call.The last three weeks, the Rams defence has permitted just 34 points; the Cardinals defence scored 14 points on turnovers by the Rams during that span. Theyre in the middle of the pack overall, ranked 17th, and aiming higher.Even before Sam Bradford was sidelined by a knee injury in preseason for the second straight year, the blueprint called for ball control on offence, but capitalizing on big plays on the other side of the ball. St. Louis dominated in time of possession against Denver.The Rams scheme hasnt changed appreciably from 2012 when co-ordinator Gregg Williams son, Blake, was defensive line coach. Holdovers from then had a better feel early on, and now those getting their first taste of Williams system, such as McLeod and fellow safety T.J. McDonald, outside linebacker Alec Ogletree and tackles Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers, are catching on.The Rams had two interceptions and two sacks against the Broncos, and the pass rush has finally gotten revved up with 13 sacks the last three games. Robert Quinn has been such a force that officials can whistle opposing tackles for holding all day.It wasnt any magic fairy dust, said middle linebacker James Laurinaitis, dueling Ogletree for the team tackles lead. We all stuck to the script and just kept practicing, and weve just gotten better results.Ogletree has an interception in two straight games and has been an all-around force in recent weeks. The second-year player said hes getting comfortable in Gregg Williams aggressive scheme.Just being able to line up and see the right things, Ogletree said. Just being able to capitalize on the opportunities when the balls in the air.Laurinaitis noted with pride, Our confidence should be high as a unit, what we can be.But in the next breath, he points out the Broncos lone touchdown came on broken coverage in the secondary.Quite frankly, Im not going to let this team become complacent, Laurinaitis said. Weve all taken turns busting things like that, when were just not in our right areas.I think we have to eliminate all of those the rest of the season.This week, theyll try to make things uncomfortable for the Chargers Philip Rivers, nursing sore ribs. San Diego (6-4) has dropped three of four.NOTES: Fisher said its probably unlikely DE Chris Long will play this weekend. Instead, the Rams intend to use all of the 21-day window before activating Long from the injured reserve-designated for return list next week at home against Oakland. Id say hed have a pretty good chance next week. ... The Rams practiced outdoors in chilly weather the last two days, with temperatures in the 30s and 40s, and Fisher makes it a point to wear shorts until Dec. 1.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Riechedly Bazoer Jersey . And once again, Team Homan emerged as the victor with the reigning national champions defeating Team Sweeting at the Pintys All-Star Curling Skins Game Friday night in the tournaments opening draw at The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre in beautiful Banff National Park.

Subway workers in Rio de Janeiro, meanwhile, were holding an assembly to vote on whether they would strike to demand higher wages, threatening to disrupt transportation. By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision.CHICAGO - While Los Angeles and Anaheim prepare for Game 7 of their second-round series, the Chicago Blackhawks are resting and looking for ways they can play even better in the Western Conference final. The Blackhawks practiced Thursday without ailing centre Andrew Shaw, but Brandon Bollig skated on the fourth line after he was suspended for the final two games of their second-round series against Minnesota. Shaw left Game 1 against the Wild with an apparent right leg injury, but he could return in Chicagos next series. "We expect to have him back on the ice this weekend and well get a better determination of when hell play," coach Joel Quenneville said. The Blackhawks missed Shaws net-front presence and pesky style in their six-game victory over Minnesota. The diminutive forward, listed at 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, has two goals and two assists in the playoffs after he set career highs with 20 goals and 19 assists in the regular season. "He emphasizes his game being gritty and getting to the net and we need more of that," forward Bryan Bickell said. "And I know last series was, we needed a lot of it to be successful and come the next series, when he does come back, I know hell bring it and thats what you need out of him." Bollig was suspended by the NHL for boarding Minnesota defenceman Keith Ballard in Game 4 of their Western Conference semifinal. It was a rough series for Bollig, who had played in every game this season for the Blackhawks until he was a healthy scratch for Game 2 against the Wild. Ron Vlaar Jersey. For Thursdays practice, he was reunited with Marcus Kruger and Ben Smith in a line combination that was very successful for the Blackhawks during the regular season. "Ive sure missed it," Bollig said. "Obviously we played together a good portion of the season and we had a nice roll there where we kind of found our niche together. So the fact that we were out there together today and hopefully it stays that way for the game and thats what gets us good quality minutes and playing a quality role." Bolligs role in the next series likely depends on Chicagos opponent. The Kings and Ducks close out the second round when they play on Friday night in Anaheim. The Western Conference final begins Sunday regardless of who wins. The Blackhawks will have home-ice advantage if Los Angeles advances, and will open on the road if top-seeded Anaheim moves on. "Theyre both physical. They both got a lot of skill," forward Brandon Saad said. "Theres a lot of similarities in a lot of teams in the NHL these days, play that tight checking game. Were not going to prepare for anyone yet obviously. We dont know who were playing. Were looking forward to see how Friday goes." ___ Jay Cohen can be reached at http://www.twitter.com/jcohenap Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
