Carlos Correa’s puppy named Groot helped him practice at spring training

The Bucs’ ever-evolving offense is finally taking advantage of their players’ strengths that were always there. Exhibit A is the running game. Yes, left tackle Jamon Meredith is a marginal upgrade over, say Gabe Carimi, who started there in the first game of the year. However, the fact that the Bucs are choosing to run more with a fullback leading the way and/or using more kickout blocks by the guards is the overriding reason why the running game has been more productive of late. Especially now that for the most part, the kickout blocks are being handled by Meredith rather than right guard Davin Joseph, who hasn’t played well at all this year.

The Bucs might simply be reveling in the presence of a competent QB, as Mike Glennon’s steadfast refusal to snap the keel and set fire to the sails has set him in stark contrast to the departed Josh Freeman. Tampa’s better-late-than-never deployment of Darrelle Revis as a man-coverage eraser of opposing #1 wideouts hasn’t hurt matters, either. With Vincent Jackson hauling in bombs and scatback Bobby Rainey running wild, the Bucs have quietly added a little swash to their buckle.

“When you’re designing what you want your defense to look like as a head coach, you pretty much pick the defense you hated to go against the most and you say ‘that’s what I want to run,'” Lester said.

I always love that attitude 鈥?play the defense you hated to face.

An aggressive, confusing defense tends to pair well with an up-tempo offense in that it can force quick-change situations, wear opponents out, and create those deadly touchdown-turnover-touchdown situations that can turn a close game into a laugher.

Elite Kids P. J. Williams Jersey Of course, if you aren鈥檛 good at the up-tempo offense or the aggressive defense, you鈥檙e creating identical disadvantages for yourself. We鈥檒l see if the offense can play efficient ball, but I have fewer concerns about the defense. It could take pretty well to an aggressive approach.

NFL news roundup: E.J. Manuel to start, Doug Martin wants to play in 2017

E.J. Manuel is expected to start for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, head coach Doug Marrone announced Thursday. Manuel is returning off a five-week layoff due to an LCL sprain. Barring a setback, he will suit up against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

While questioning the driver the Officer detected a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle. The officer then requested the driver and two passengers to get out of the vehicle. Once out of the vehicle the Officer explained to the driver, who owned the vehicle, that he was a K-9 Officer and that the dog would alert to an illegal substance. Subsequently, inside of a black bag the officer discovered the wallet of the driver and vehicle owner, Dwayne L. Bowe, and two containers that had 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams respectively of what is believed to be marijuana in them. Bowe was then placed under arrest for the possession of a controlled substance. The K-9 alerted to a black backpack and inside of that was found a container that had 4.2 grams of what is believed to be marijuana in it.

One of the passengers, George A. Thompson, said the backpack belonged to him. Subsequent to his arrest for possession of a controlled substance, Thompson was searched and on his person two hand rolled cigarettes, containing what is believed to be 2.2 grams of marijuana were also found.

Bowe and Thompson were both transported to the Riverside Police Department for booking on the following municipal charges: Bowe for speeding and possession of a controlled substance with a bond of $750; Thompson for the possession of a controlled substance with a bond of $500. The third passenger in the car, who was not charged, posted bond for both men and they were released with a court date of December 18, 2017.

John Dorsey tells The Border Patrol that the Chiefs were aware of Bowe’s arrest but will not comment any further on it.

Bills vs. Steelers 2017 results: Pittsburgh defense bounces back in win over Buffalo

Known historically for their defense, the Pittsburgh Steelers were presumably quite unhappy after giving up a team-record 55 points to New England last week. Perhaps they used that as motivation in Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills, bouncing back to a comfortable 23-10 win Sunday afternoon.
Womens Eddie Lack Jersey
The return of rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel didn’t prove to be much help for the Bills against Pittsburgh. Manuel was 22-of-39 for just 155 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Bills only added a touchdown when Manuel hit Chris Gragg for a score with three seconds left in the game.

The 28-year-old former receiver played six seasons in the NFL, totaling over 700 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Womens Buster Posey Jersey
More connections to the NFL sprung from the sentencing of Sam Hurd, as it was alleged by the defense that the father of current Detroit Lions cornerback Chris Houston was the primary partner in the drug ring, not Hurd.

There has been no acknowledgement of the claim by Houston or his father at this time.

Cincinnati Bengals running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has fumbled just once this season, despite playing with a broken thumb.

Green-Ellis believes he’s back to full strength, which will be welcome to a team struggling with offensive consistency this season. Quarterback Andy Dalton has been unreliable in the last two weeks, increasing the need for the Bengals to lean on their running backs.

The No. 2 Arizona Wildcats play the No. 11 Xavier Musketeers in the West region’s other game. Xavier made its sixth Sweet 16 in the past 10 years and are coming off of a victory over a good Florida State team. The Wildcats will try to put an end to the Musketeers’ Cinderella run, and are the Pac-12 team many believed would win the region hopes to take another step in that direction.

Players for Team USA said reports of a planned celebration for Puerto Rico’s team gave them motivation for the WBC final, but Puerto Rico said the celebration would have occurred, win or lose.

Adam Jones … is talking about things he doesn’t know about, Molina told ESPN. He really has to get informed because he shouldn’t have said those comments, let alone in public and mocking the way [preparations] were made.

Game David Justice Jersey Jones noted that the Puerto Rico team had champion T-shirts already made up as well and that didn’t sit well with us, so we did what we had to do. A flight to Puerto Rico and a caravan and celebration already had been planned before the title game was played.

Watch: Donald Trump takes shot at Colin Kaepernick being out of a job

Two weeks into NFL free agency, Colin Kaepernick is still without a job for next season, and the controversial quarterback is ongoing struggle to land a gig has sparked the interest of President Donald Trump.

Speaking at a rally in Louisville, Ky., on Monday, Trump took multiple shots at Kaepernick and cited a Bleacher Report article to fire up his Republican supporters.

Now, he will get a chance to study under Manning, although it is unclear how long his contract will end up being. If nothing else, the Giants will get a quarterback with at least some playing experience behind Manning in case the starter suffers an injury.

Smith reportedly had interest from other teams, including the Chargers and Browns.

Limited Kids Roy Miller Jersey With a year of college hockey under his belt, Poehling could reach the NHL quicker than most of his draft peers. That makes him appealing to a lot of teams, particularly contenders.

Game Youth Tamba Hali Jersey So will his two-way ability. Poehling is blessed with the skills of a top center and the smarts of a third-line, shut-down winger. Sounds like a Blue, doesn鈥檛 he?

The only knock on the 5鈥?1 center is that he holds onto the puck too long. But that pass-first mentality is born out of strong vision and speed to burn. The Predators lack a true, high-skill center behind Ryan Johansen. Necas can slot into that role.

Marquette King recruiting Marshawn Lynch to play for Raiders

Marshawn Lynch is considering coming out of retirement to play for his hometown Oakland Raiders. Marquette King, Oakland’s punter, is all for this idea.

King has been taking time out of his busy offseason schedule, which includes practicing punts in a green Power Rangers costume, to encourage Lynch to join the Raiders. We hope it works, because it would be ideal for Lynch to finish his career in Oakland.

It all started with a little cajoling from King.

There’s no guarantee that the final outcome would have been different if the proper call had been made, but there’s also no doubt that the sequence completely changed the direction that the game was heading.

Sure, Villanova was the tournament’s No. 1 overall seed and got beat in the second round, but at least they were competitive. Florida State was playing a team seeded eight lines below (more than the differential between ‘Nova and Wisconsin) and was blown out from basically the opening tip to the final horn, which occurred with the scoreboard showing 91-66. The American public didn’t seem to have a whole lot of faith in Leonard Hamilton’s team heading into the tournament, and on Saturday the Seminoles proved all their detractors correct.

We could talk about the fact that they only scored 39 points or we could talk about their history of March disappointments. Instead of doing either of those things, we’re simply going to sum this game up in four seconds.

Michael Vick injury: Eagles QB a full participant in practice Wednesday

Michael Vick returned to practice Wednesday as a full participant for the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Jeff McLaine of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Vick has missed the last two games for the Eagles due to a hamstring injury.
Authentic Womens Kayvon Webster Jersey
When I was 16 I participated in a church scavenger hunt. We scoured yard sales and friends’ garages to come up with the strangest stuff we could possibly find. Upon returning to the church, this kid on my team was beyond excited. “Come here, dude,” he said. “You gotta see this.”

It was an old microwave with the door missing. “See! Look!” He turned it on and stuck his head inside, and was rather annoyed with me after I frantically ran over and unplugged it from the wall. Church kids, man. The Bible lacks a Microwave Testament, and sorely.
Game Cyrus Jones Jersey With Madden’s default rosters, the Buccaneers possess an overall team rating of 81, which is rather good. Let’s check in on their rating after gutting their roster in favor of 44 identical Gregs Schiano.

Carrington picked up his dribble, then ran in a partial circle like an NFL running back trying to avoid tacklers. It was the most obvious travel you could ever see, and the ball went back to Arkansas, which was still leading by a point.

Carrington is a junior and one of Seton Hall¡¯s best players. That he¡¯d make a mental error of this magnitude in a spot like this is pretty surprising. He doesn¡¯t, in general, have a turnover problem, and he could¡¯ve made the pass he made without walking.

Carrington¡¯s turnover meant Seton Hall would have to foul intentionally, send Arkansas to the free-throw line, and hope to get the ball back down just two or three points. The Pirates tried to do that, but the result was crippling.

Here’s what’s going on with the Arizona Coyotes arena drama

Hello. Welcome to another edition of our NHL Explainer series, where I talk to myself about hockey news that might seem complex to most people. Including myself.

This week, we’re going to discuss everyone’s favorite topic: the Arizona Coyotes arena saga in Glendale.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and the Coyotes ownership started a war of words with the Arizona state legislature this week. Essentially, they threatened to leave the state if taxpayers don’t pay for a new downtown Phoenix arena.

Watching the Coyotes leave Arizona is the last thing anyone involved in this whole drama wants. But it’s worth resetting for those new to the situation. This Glendale-Coyotes struggle has gone on for almost a decade, and now it’s rearing its ugly head again.

It happened early, and it happened often. Despite being an unbreakable wall against Barcelona in the first leg, PSG’s defense was an utter mess, constantly losing marks and misreading the play in front of them. Barcelona bringing an unconventional formation and tactical setup certainly didn’t help them any, but there was so little tactical discipline in PSG’s defense on Wednesday, that it was utterly shocking to see.

Their midfield bailed them out for much of the first half, but they wore out and broke down early in the second half to allow Barcelona even greater footing as they won their third goal and chased a fourth.

Paris Saint-Germain: Kevin Trapp; Thomas Meunier (Gregorz Krychowiak 90’+2), Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Layvin Kurzawa; Marco Verratti, Adrien Rabiot, Blaise Matuidi; Lucas Moura (Angel Di Maria 54’), Edinson Cavani, Julian Draxler (Serge Aurier 75’)

Edinson Cavani had one near-miss on a counter, banging a shot off the post, but a few minutes later he made no such mistake, taking service to the top of the box from Layvin Kurzawa off a set piece and hammering home a shot that Marc-Andre Ter Stegen couldn’t stop.
