RONT: Browns roo


Foxborough, MA (SportsNetwork. Ashley Williams Jersey .com) - The New England Revolution edged the 10- man Columbus Crew at Gillette Stadium on Saturday to climb up to second place in the Eastern Conference. Sporting Kansas City had climbed ahead of the Revs in the East table with a draw against D.C. United on Friday, but New Englands defeat of Columbus sees the club improve to 48 points to claim sole possession of the runner-up spot behind first-place United. Lee Nguyen broke the deadlock in the 20th minute of Saturdays clash after collecting a failed clearance from the Crew defense and slotting a cool finish into the side-netting. The lead, however, lasted just five minutes as Ethan Finlay brought Columbus level moments later. The Crew attacker took a pass from Tony Tchani and eased past Jose Goncalves with a brilliant first touch before slipping a shot past Bobby Shuttleworth. The two sides remained level until the 67th minute when Chris Tierneys free kick from the left flank was met by Jermaine Jones, who nodded the delivery into the back of the net for the winning goal. Columbus was left no way back after Waylon Francis attempted to deny a 70th- minute throw-in, resulting in the defenders second yellow card of the match and subsequent ejection. Columbus remains on 43 points and slips to fifth place in the East after Red Bull New York edged the Houston Dynamo earlier on Saturday. Joe Allen Jersey . Brad Malone had the other goal for the Monsters (1-1-0), while Elliott chipped in an assist for a three-point night and the games first star. Bryan Lerg also had two assists. Corban Knight and Max Reinhart scored for the Heat (1-1-0), who opened their season Friday with a 5-2 win over the Monsters in Cleveland. Wales Jerseys . Still, Milan remained five points behind city rival Inter Milan in the race for fifth place and the final Europa League berth, after Inter beat 10-man Parma 2-0. Meanwhile, Paul Pogba led the way as Juventus stayed on course for a third consecutive title with a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Bologna. http://www.soccerwalesshop.com/gareth-bale-wales-UEFA-EURO-jersey/ . On Saturday night, Winnipegs strong offense was again accompanied by some fantastic pitching which gave the Fish a commanding victory.CLEVELAND - Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy never afraid to speak his mind went out of his way to rave about Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer.During the week, McCoy told reporters he respected Hoyer for his intelligence, athleticism and how he conducts himself on and off the field. This wasnt an act, some attempt at psyching out Hoyer. McCoy meant every word.On Sunday, McCoy said it to Hoyers face.He came up to me during the game and hes like, Hey, I meant everything I said, Hoyer said following Clevelands 22-17 victory over the Buccaneers. To know youre earning the respect around the league means a lot.And Hoyer isnt the only one getting praise.The Browns, stuck in a degrading cycle of losing for years, have the NFLs attention.They definitely know about the Cleveland Browns, said safety Tashaun Gipson, who picked up his sixth interception. They take the Browns seriously. They have no choice. You dont win five games by mistake.Hoyers 34-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Taylor Gabriel with 8:59 left gave Cleveland the lead, and the Browns confounding defence was able to protect it.Clevelands fourth victory in five games helped the Browns (5-3) surpass last years win total and gave them some momentum heading into Thursday nights matchup with AFC North-leading Cincinnati. The Browns havent been this good at the midway point since 2007, when Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas was a rookie.Its been a long time, Thomas said.The Browns concluded a three-game stretch against three of the NFLs weakest teams Jacksonville, Oakland and Tampa Bay are a combined 2-23 with two wins. They were ugly at times, and the Browns still have a lot of areas to clean up, but Cleveland teams in the past probably would have found ways to lose.Not this one. Hoyer shook off two interceptions and the Browns blocked a field goal and punt to pull out the win.For a team whos culture has been losing, I dont know if a few years ago and I can only speak for my time here I dont know if a Browns team wins that game, Hoyer said.The Buccaneers (1-7) have lost four straight and five games by six points or less. Coach Lovie Smith is seeing progress, but its not translating to wins.There is no doubt that we are headed in the right direction, but you could say that about four games ago, Smith said.. Custom Wales Jerseys. . We have to find a way to win a game.By November football, you are supposed to be playing your best football and we havent.There was little time for the Browns to celebrate. Coach Mike Pettine said he and his staff planned to grind in the office a little bit on Sunday night to prepare for the Bengals (5-2-1), who will provide a much better measuring stick than Clevelands three previous opponents.Here are five other takeaways from the Browns win over the Buccaneers:HOYERS HEART: Hoyer passed for a season-high 300 yards and stayed in after taking several hard hits. He improved to 8-3 as Clevelands starter, but not before he was booed by some Browns fans who cant let go of the thought of Johnny Manziel behind centre.Obviously, we need to play better, he said. Our fans expect more out of us, and we expect more than our fans do.HEY, ROOMIE: Bucs rookie WR Mike Evans caught a pair of 24-yard TD passes from Mike Glennon and celebrated both scores by making the money gesture made famous by his Texas A&M roommate, Manziel.Evans finished with seven catches for 124 yards, but was called for pass interference in the final two minutes, wiping out a key first down.WINNS WIN: Browns defensive end Billy Winn made the most of his first game back in several weeks. Winn blocked a field goal in the first quarter by placing his hands on two Tampa Bay lineman and leaping over them.I landed on both feet, said Winn, who had never blocked a kick before. Its one of my old skateboard moves.SUB-PAR SUB: Glennon fell to 1-4 since replacing the injured Josh McCown. Glennon made some strong throws, but missed a couple hed like to have again.The two picks in the first half were not good at all, he said. Should have been potentially two touchdowns, throws that I need to make.INJURY FRONT: Browns rookie CB Justin Gilbert took a blow to the head in the fourth quarter and was helped from the field, but the team said he did not have a concussion. DB Johnson Bademosi, one of the Browns top special teamers, sustained a concussion on a crack-back block covering a punt. Buccaneers LB Lavonte David was helped off the field after he was dropped by Browns RB Terrance West, but the team said he was not seriously injured.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
