Drew Stanton tossed a go-ahead 26-yard touchdown pass to Jaron Brown

(SportsNetwork. Stitched USA Soccer Jerseys .com) - Injuries have most observers scurrying to jump off the Arizona Cardinals bandwagon. The Cards, however, enter Week 15 of the NFL season on the precipice of the postseason, tied for the leagues best record at 10-3 and one-game ahead of the reigning Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks in the ultra-tough NFC West. Arizona will try to keep its critics at bay and inch closer to a playoff berth when the visit the stingy St. Louis Rams on Thursday Night Football. A win by the Cardinals will send Bruce Arians club to the playoffs as long as the Dallas-Philadelphia game set for Sunday night doesnt end in a tie. Arizona can also lock down a postseason berth with a win in St. Louis, coupled by a Detroit loss against Minnesota on Sunday and a Green Bay win or draw in Buffalo. Drew Stanton tossed a go-ahead 26-yard touchdown pass to Jaron Brown late in the third quarter last weekend and Arizonas defense held off Kansas City from there as the Cardinals edged the Chiefs 17-14. This was another typical Cardinal football game, said Arians. We played hard and made a mistake or two, but when it comes to second-half football, this team has shown its resiliency. Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce fumbled the ball at the Arizona 16 with 5:23 remaining and the Cardinals drained the remaining time off the clock by picking up a pair of first downs. Kerwynn Williams, elevated from the practice squad to fill in for Andre Ellington, who was placed on season-ending IR earlier this week with a hip injury, carried the ball 19 times for 100 yards. I didnt know what my role was going to be, said Williams, who had never touched the ball before. I just wanted to be prepared whatever it was. Stanton had lost two of his three prior starts since replacing starting QB Carson Palmer, who was lost for the season with a knee injury during a Week 10 victory over the Rams. Stanton finished 15-of-30 for 239 yards. The injury bug continued to be ever present, though, as cornerback Antonio Cromartie hurt his left ankle during the middle stages of the fourth and had to be carted off the field. The injury was initially believed to be an Achilles so the Cardinals were breathing a sigh of relief. Things can change, but it wasnt on the surface as severe as I thought it looked, general manger Steve Keim said. Cromartie was listed as a limited participant on the injury report Tuesday and is listed as day-to-day but the short week obviously wont help. The Rams, meanwhile, are coming off their second straight shutout, a 24-0 whitewashing of Washington made far worse for the Redskins because St. Louis is the team they gave a kings ransom to in order to get Robert Griffin III in the 2012 NFL Draft. Michael Brockers, Janoris Jenkins, Alec Ogletree and Greg Robinson, who were among the slew of players the Rams received from the blockbuster RG3 trade with Washington, were in St. Louis starting lineup but Griffin was on Washingtons bench due to ineffectiveness, at least for the first 58 minutes. Rams signal caller Shaun Hill tossed a pair of touchdown passes to Jared Cook and after Tavon Austins 78-yard punt return staked the Rams to a 24-0 advantage late in the third quarter, chants of RG3, RG3, RG3, reverberated throughout FedEx Field. Griffin, though, never got the call until two minutes remained after Colt McCoy departed with a neck strain. Hill finished 16-of-22 for 213 yards, while Cook hauled in four passes for 61 yards for St. Louis, which posted back-to-back shutouts for the first time since 1945. The Rams blanked Oakland 52-0 last Sunday. Pretty impressive, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said of the shutouts. I look at this as we can play better. Fishers defense, led by a strong front four featuring star pass rusher Robert Quinn and impact rookie Aaron Donald, recorded seven sacks, two interceptions and eight tackles for loss while holding Washington to 206 total yards in the triumph. The Cardinals, of course, used to call St. Louis home from 1960 until moving to the desert for the 1988 season. The franchise has won two straight over the Rams and holds a slim 35-34-2 advantage in the all-time series between the two teams, including a 31-14 triumph in Arizona on Nov. 9 when Cards cornerback Patrick Peterson picked off two Austin Davis passes and returned one for a 30-yard score. His running mate, Cromartie, added a 14-yard TD off a fumble recovery. The Cards traditionally do very poorly on short weeks, compiling a 7-20-2 all- time mark on Thursdays. The Rams are better but still underwater at 6-7. WHAT TO WATCH FOR The Cardinals are 7-0 at home this season, the most wins for the franchise as the host in a single season since 1925 when Chicago was its home. Simple math makes them a far more pedestrian 3-3 on the road where they have lost two straight so maybe they will try to pretend that the Gateway to the West is still where their heart is. The problem here is that Arizonas offense has been struggling mightily since Palmer went down in the first matchup with the Rams and St. Louis possesses the hottest defense in the game. We are really focused in well right now and I thought it was huge to get two wins in a row, said Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis. We have to challenge ourselves really hard the next three days in preparation for Arizona on Thursday night. We have to lock it in, and keep this thing going. Theres definitely momentum right now, and we just have to keep fighting and keep stacking wins. The Cardinals have managed just four offensive touchdowns in four games since Palmer tore his ACL trying to avoid a sack by Rams safety Mark Barron in the fourth quarter of Novembers contest. St. Louis stop unit, meanwhile, has allowed only 34 points while going 3-1 since falling to Arizona and will be attempting to become the first team to put up three straight goose eggs since the legendary Steel Curtain with Pittsburgh did so in 1976. Granted the Rams two shutouts didnt come against offensive juggernauts -- the Raiders and Redskins -- but any time you can pile up the zeros in an era where just about everything is skewed toward offense, its impressive. I want to see it again, a selfish Fisher said. We need to keep playing, keep preparing the way we are. In the past two weeks the St. Louis stop unit is allowing just 225 yards per game and it has been doing everything pretty well. For instance the Rams gave up a Cards season-low 28 rushing yards on 22 carries last month and have been giving up under 60 yards a game on the ground over the past six games. The pass rush, fueled by Quinn, has found the QB 13 times over the prior two games. Guys are playing lights-out right now, said Quinn, who now has 10 1/2 sacks on the season. Hopefully, we just keep it going. The biggest test for the Rams D could be Larry Fitzgerald, who generally turns it up a notch in division games. The future Hall of Fame receiver enters this weeks matchup with 358 receptions for 4,697 receiving yards with 38 touchdowns against the NFC West since entering the league in 2004, the most of any player against his own division during that span. Against St. Louis, Fitzgerald has 131 receptions and 16 touchdowns, the most against any opponent in his career. In his past three meetings against the Rams, Fitzgerald has 29 catches for 288 yards and three touchdowns. You have to love the NFL schedule, said Fitzgerald. You want a tough game against a great football team. St. Louis again played a really good game and those guys are rolling right now. Its always tough to play there, but were going to be ready for the occasion. Hill, meanwhile, has at least steadied things on offense for the Rams over the last month since replacing the wet-behind-the-ears Davis. The veteran Hill has completed 62.0 percent of his passes with six TDs and two INTs since Davis was benched for his performance against the Cards. Rookie running back Tre Mason leads all NFC rookies with 628 rushing yards and has 363 scrimmage yards (315 rushing, 48 receiving) and four touchdowns (three rushing, one receiving) in his past three games at home. Hill is sure to be wary of Peterson, who has five career interceptions against the Rams and headlines a powerful unit that is allowing under 17 points a game over the last six weeks. OVERALL ANALYSIS Its hard to imagine either offense putting up big numbers against the opposing defenses here. The X-factor could be Mason, who has been tearing it up recently on the fast track at Edward Jones Dome. Thats enough to give the slight edge to the Rams in what shapes up as a 50-50 game. (The Rams) are playing as good a football as anybody now, Arizona defensive lineman Calais Campbell said. Its a division game. They know us, guys youve played against multiple times. Its going to be a good football game. Sports Network predicted outcome: Rams 14, Cardinals 10 USA Soccer Jerseys 2020 . The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was made.

    MILWAUKEE -- After struggling to score runs in the last four games, Carlos Gomez knew his team needed a spark. Nike Air Max 270 React Hyper Jade . The Milwaukee Brewers outfielder provided one. Immediately. Gomez hit the first pitch he saw from Mike Bolsinger leading off the bottom of the first inning for his eighth home run of the season to propel the Brewers to an 8-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night. "I really wanted to get something going tonight," said Gomez, who also had a two-run single and walked three times. "I knew he likes to throw the ball close to the zone on his first pitch, so I was ready for it." Gomez was just 3-for-16 in the Brewers four-game series against the Cincinnati Reds over the weekend, while Milwaukee lost three of the games. He said he thought about making sure he was swinging at good pitches while coming to Miller Park on Monday. "I continued that through batting practice and right into the game," Gomez said. Martin Maldonado and Jean Segura also homered for Milwaukee, which had lost four of its last five entering the game. The Brewers still have the best record in baseball at 22-11. Milwaukee remained the only team in baseball to not lose when scoring at least four runs, improving to 18-0 in those games. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he was pleased to see his teams offence come to life. The Brewers had been struggling offensively, scoring only 10 runs in the Reds series. "Weve been talking about somewhere in there getting, six, seven, eight runs and we did," Roenicke said. "It sets up a lot of things when you get people on base. The guys did a great job." Matt Garza (2-3) allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings for Milwaukee. It was only the third time in seven starts this season that Garza has not given up at least four runs. Garza said it was satisfying to win the game, despite struggling through the first few innings. "I really wanted to attack tonight and not shy away from contact," he said. "My teammates really backed me up tonight until I got it together." Bolsinger (1-2) took the loss after giving up four runs and seven hits in five innings. "We didnt execute pitches from the first pitch of the game," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "We walked seven on the night and we needed to make pitches and we couldnt make them. We couldnt keep the ball down." Arizona grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Gerardo Parra led off the game with a single and moved to second on a walk to Miguel Montero. With two outs, Aaron Hill lined a hit to right that Brewers outfielder Caleb Gindl dived for, but could not hang on to as Parra scored. Gomez tied the score in the bottom of the inning with homer. The Brewers grabbed a 3-1 lead in the second as Maldonado hit a two-run homer. Arizona tied it at 3 in the third inning on RBI singles by Montero and Hill, who had four singles in the game. The Diamondbacks loaded the bases with one out, but Garza struck out Alfredo Marte and Ender Inciarte to get out of the inning. Khris Davis sacrifice fly in the fifth inning scored Scooter Gennett, who had doubled, to give Milwaukee a 4-3 lead. Gomezs bloop single in the sixth scored two runs. Segura then followed with a long home run to left field, his second of the season, to boost the lead to 8-3. The Brewers won a challenge in the fourth when Bolsinger was called safe at first after Segura bobbled his grounder. However, the call was overturned after replays showed he was out. NOTES: Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings was voted the National League Rookie of the Month for April. Owings paced N.L. rookies in hitting through the first month of the season, posting a .313 average. He also led rookies with five doubles, six extra-base hits and 26 hits in 28 games. ... Arizona OF A.J. Pollack didnt start for the fifth straight game due to a groin injury. He pinch hit in the sixth inning and grounded out. ... RHP Marco Estrada (2-1) will start in the second game of the series for Milwaukee against Josh Collmenter (1-2) for Arizona.

The Grizzlies erased most of a 25-point deficit before Durant, the leagues scoring champion, got hot.TORONTO - The once-red hot Toronto Raptors have suddenly gone cold.And while Kyle Lowry said a four-game losing streak is nothing to fret over, his chilly demeanour in the post-game dressing room Thursday night said otherwise.The Raptors dropped a 103-95 decision to the Charlotte Hornets, spoiling the teams homecoming after a disappointing road trip. And Lowry, who led the way with 24 points, was positively terse with reporters after the lacklustre loss.Tonight we sucked as a team, and weve got to figure it out soon, Lowry said. Weve got a game on Saturday, and tonight we sucked as a team, but we had a bad game, and Im sure well be fine.Lou Williams finished with 15 points on just 4-for-15 shooting for Toronto (24-11), while Greivis Vasquez had 11 points and Jonas Valanciunas finished with 10. Charlottes starters also outscored Torontos by a whopping 89-46 margin.Raptors coach Dwane Casey, who was longer than normal in the post-game dressing room, was angry at the teams lack of intensity, especially in the first and third quarters — in each of which the Raptors were badly outhustled and outscored.I dont know what it is. But weve got to find seven or eight guys that are interested in competing at a high level, Casey said. I thought the second unit came in and competed.For whatever reason, were not getting that energy at the start of the game, the start of the third quarter. Those were backbreakers. Whether its a lineup change or whatever it is, weve got to find an answer for it.Asked if he could expand on Caseys comments, Lowry replied: No, I cannot.When asked why Casey would say that, Lowry said I dont know.The game was the Raptors first back at the Air Canada Centre after a disappointing road trip that saw them win just two of six, and fall out of the Eastern Conference lead. It was also the first of a welcome six straight games at home, where the Raptors had been riding a five-game winning streak — until Thursday.But as Casey said prior to tipoff, Home wont take care of you, youve got to take care of home, and it was the Hornets that led for most of the night in front of another ACC sellout crowd of 19,800.Just frustration, disappointment, anger, said Patrick Patterson. Everyones just frustrated with the way were playing right now. Its not like were not trying. Its not like were giving up. As you see, no matter what the score is were going to continue to battle and play hard but it just seems like things just arent working for us.It seems like were in a hole and were trying to climb out right now. Hopefully we climb out sooner rather than later.Gerald Henderson scored 31 points to top the Hornets (14-24) in their fourth straight victory. Kemba Walker added 29 for Charlotte, which led by as much as 15 points before taking a 75-66 advantage into the fourth quarter.The Raptors, whove now lost five in a row to the Hornets, opened the fourth with a 7-0 run to pull within two points. But that was as close as they would come, as Charlotte answered virtually every Toronto basket the rest of the way.A three-pointer by Walker 1:555 left to play put the Hornets up by 10 and sent many fans for the exits. Nike Air Max 270 React Bauhaus For Sale . The Raptors fought back one last time, and a Patterson basket with 42 seconds to play pulled the Raptors to within four points, breathing some life into Torontos hopes for a victory.But Walker snuffed that out with a long jumper that put Charlotte back up by six with 19 seconds to play, and sealed Torontos fate.We knew this team was going to come in hungry, Casey said, Theyre athletic and aggressive. We had to meet that. Youre going to have nights when the shots arent going to fall. But the focus and the defensive energy need to be there. It wasnt there.This is the first real slump for the Raptors since the Rudy Gay trade just over a year ago that turned their fortunes around.It happens, its a long season. I dont know how many games weve played, Lowry said. Its a long season, so we can possibly run out 10 in a row, and this four-game losing streak will be forgotten about.The Hornets shot 48 per cent on the night to Torontos 40 per cent, and outrebounded the Raptors 46-42.Henderson was asked why the Hornets have had so much success against the Raptors.I dont know, I think we get up to play them, he said. They are a really good team, second in the East. They have been playing great this year, so we just know that we have to bring our best game to compete against them.Toronto played its 19th game without DeMar DeRozan, who had hoped to play Thursday, but instead is now targeting next week for his return. They could sorely use their leading scorer back in the lineup — theyve also dropped from ninth in the NBA defensively, to 28th since DeRozans injury — but they are playing it safe with their all-star, who is out with a torn groin tendon.When the medical people say he can come back, hell come back, Casey said prior to tipoff. His career is more important. . . Ive seen two or three players in my time in the NBA lose their careers on a similar injury, by rushing back too quick. Its going to be up to the medical people and up to DeMar when he does come back.Despite a warning by Casey to come out with a sense of urgency, the Raptors got off to an abysmal first quarter that saw the Hornets go up by 10 points. The Hornets doubled Toronto on the boards 16-8 and beat them 7-0 on second-chance points. Charlotte took a 31-23 lead into the second.Tyler Hansbrough drained the first three-pointer of his NBA career to pull the Raptors to within a point early in the second. They finally took the lead on a driving layup by Lowry with just under a minute left in the quarter, and went into the dressing room leading 52-50 at halftime.Toronto didnt get its first field goal of the third until five-and-a-half minutes in, while the Hornets went on a 21-3 run to take a 71-56 lead. Charlotte outscored the Raptors 25-14 in the third and took a nine-point lead into the fourth.Toronto is home to the Boston Celtics on Sunday, then hosts Detroit, Philadelphia, and Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta, before capping its homestand Jan. 18 versus New Orleans.
