LONDON (AP) With fans growing increasingly nervous , Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp knew his players needed to make a statement about their title credentials against Bournemouth on Saturday.They delivered just the right message with a rampant display in a 3-0 win at Anfield that not only put the team back atop the English Premier League standings but also showed that fears over another late-season collapse may be unwarranted.We wanted to show a reaction. Its our job not only to come through but to really perform and convince, said Klopp, whose team is looking for a first league title since 1990 but had let a seven-point lead to Manchester City slip away in recent weeks.Supporters get a little bit nervous for all sorts of reasons. Thats not a Liverpool thing its a football thing.Saturdays win was convincing indeed. After being held to two straight 1-1 draws, Liverpool rediscovered its attacking verve as goals from Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum essentially decided the game after just 34 minutes, and Mohamed Salah added the third in the 48th. If not for a number of missed chances in the second half, the scoreline easily could have been doubled.The win means City, which took the lead on goal difference on Wednesday, must beat Chelsea on Sunday in order to prevent Liverpool from establishing another gap with a game in hand. Liverpool has 65 points from 26 games with City on 62.Chelsea is also under heavy pressure going into Sundays game after top-four rivals Manchester United and Arsenal won on Saturday.United climbed above Chelsea into fourth with a 3-0 win at Fulham, while Arsenal was level on points with Maurizio Sarris side after beating last-placed Huddersfield 2-1.On a day where every game was preceded by a minutes silence for Emiliano Sala following the confirmation of the Argentine strikers death, Cardiff ended an emotional week with a crucial victory. The team moved out of the relegation zone by beating Southampton 2-1 thanks to Kenneth Zohores stoppage-time winner.Salas body was recovered on Wednesday from the crashed plane that was taking him to Cardiff, after he signed for the Welsh club from Nantes in January.For Emiliano, I feel really proud that the lads have done him justice, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said.In other games, Watford beat Everton 1-0 Zack Steffen Jersey , Burnley won at Brighton 3-1, and Crystal Palace drew at home against West Ham 1-1.Paul Pogba scored twice for United at Craven Cottage as the French midfielder continued his resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Pogba gave United the lead with a blistering shot from a tight angle in the 14th minute and converted a penalty for the third goal in the 65th, taking his tally to eight goals in his last eight league games.And after sitting 11 points from fourth place when Solskjaer took over from the fired Jose Mourinho in December, United was firmly back in the hunt for a Champions League spot.Thats what we wanted since Ole came. We talked about this, we want to be at the top, top four, Pogba said. There is still a long way to go but we are there and we want to stay there now.Arsenal hasnt given up hope of finishing fourth either. Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette scored in the first half for the Gunners, who still havent kept a clean sheet away in the league this season after Huddersfield pulled one back in injury time through an own goal by Sead Kolasinac.The most dramatic finish came at St. Marys though, where Southampton thought it secured a point when Jack Stephens equalized in injury time. But Zohores close-range finish two minutes later handed Cardiff all three points and consecutive top-flight victories for the first time since 1962.Burnley also moved out of the relegation zone, with Chris Wood scoring twice for the visitors at Brighton.At Vicarage Road, Watford substitute Andre Gray piled more pressure on Everton manager Marco Silva by scoring the only goal with a header in the 65th. That handed Everton a third straight league loss and subjected Silva to a chorus of taunting chants on his first return to Watford since he was sacked by the club last year after being approached by Everton.Wilfried Zaha rescued a point for Crystal Palace, scoring an equalizer 14 minutes from time after Noble gave the visitors a first-half lead from the penalty spot. UDINE, Italy (AP) Italy came away with hope for the future after Nicolo Barella and Moise Kean scored their first international goals in a 2-0 win over Finland to open European Championship qualifying on Saturday.It marked the first time the Azzurri scored more than one goal in a competitive match in nearly two years.Italy moved atop Group J, level on three points with Greece Cheap Soccer Jerseys , which won at Liechtenstein 2-0.Bosnia and Herzegovina beat Armenia 2-1 and also has three points.Under pressure to produce a revival after missing last years World Cup, Italy didnt waste time. Barella, a 22-year-old midfielder with Cagliari, scored seven minutes in with a long, deflected shot from a rebound following a free kick from Marco Verratti.Kean, aged 19, then took advantage of an excellent throughball from Ciro Immobile to find the target from the center of the area in the 74th. He became the second youngest scorer for Italy after Bruno Nicole in 1958.Still, it wasnt all straightforward for the hosts.Finland forward Teemu Pukki wasted a great chance to equalize, shooting wide after sprinting past Leonardo Bonucci to redirect a cross in the 65th.But the youth movement was the theme from the beginning, when Kean became the youngest striker to start for Italy in more than a century, in place of injured winger Federico Chiesa.Hes skillful, Italy coach Roberto Mancini said of Kean. But he still has a lot of work to do. Hes got a huge margin for improvement.Also earning his first international start was Valencia defender Cristiano Piccini at right back, playing for the injured Alessandro Florenzi. And midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo, also 19 Cheap AC Milan Soccer Shirts , made his Italy debut as a second-half substitute.Its not difficult to see talent in Kean and Zaniolo, so its not a risk to pick them, Mancini said.There were also contributions from veterans, with 36-year-old Fabio Quagliarella having a chance denied with a one-handed save from goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky after coming on in the second half.Quagliarella, the Sampdoria striker who leads Serie A with 21 goals, was making his first Italy appearance in 8 1/2 years.In Liechtenstein, Kostas Fortounis and Anastasios Donis scored for Greece.In Sarajevo, Rade Krunic and Deni Milosevic got the goals for Bosnia as striker Edin Dzeko celebrated his 100th appearance.On Tuesday, Italy hosts Liechtenstein in Parma, Greece plays at Bosnia and Finland visits Armenia.

METAIRIE , La. (AP) When Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore finished reviewing game video of the latest performance by New Orleans defense, he came away unimpressed, but not discouraged.We didnt get up for that game and thats on us. We know weve got to step it up, Lattimore said after practice Wednesday, as the Saints prepared for their postseason clash on Sunday with Carolina. Its the playoffs, so thats in the past. Were going to get the job done. We didnt lose our confidence at all. Were good. Were going to get up for this game for sure.Lattimore and fellow Saints defenders not only have to address their recent back-sliding as a unit, but also for the presence of star Carolina tight end Greg Olsen, who didnt play in either of these teams previous two meetings this season.Youre talking about one of the better tight ends in the game. Not having him is significant and having him is huge, Saints coach Sean Payton said. Hes smart. Hes tough. He blocks for the run. He enjoys competing and quite honestly Carolina Panthers Customized Jerseys , he does so many little things well in regards to zone or man, that third down or red zone pick a situation its just significant.Olsen missed nine games with a foot injury this season. He played in Carolinas last four regular season games, with as many as nine receptions in one game.We do some things with Greg that we didnt get a chance to do when he wasnt with us, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. Greggs a pass-catching threat, a good route runner, got good hands.He has just 17 catches for 191 yards and one touchdown this season, and had only one reception in Carolinas loss to Atlanta last week.Still, Saints defenders expect Olsen to be a factor in a win-or-go-home playoff game.Him and Cam have timing together, chemistry Carolina Panthers T-Shirts , Saints safety Vonn Bell said. He knows the offense. Hes a (former) Pro Bowler. He knows how to use his body to keep defenders from getting to the ball in flight.We just know hes a passing threat, Bell added.The Saints improved from 27th defensively overall to 15th this season. They also enjoyed considerable increases in sacks, from 30 to 42, and interceptions, from 9 to 20.Yet a 31-24 loss at Tampa Bay in the regular season finale left a bad taste in everyones mouth, Payton said.The Saints defense gave up 455 total yards in Tampa Bay. The Bucs converted 13 of 18 third downs and their lone fourth-down attempt. If not for three interceptions one by linebacker Craig Robertson and two by rookie safety Marcus Williams, the Saints might have struggled just to keep it close.Weve got a fire lit up under us to come out here and play the way we know were capable of playing, defensive tackle Tyeler Davison said. Our details werent exactly on point like they need to be that last game.The Bucs gained 110 yards rushing and had two receivers go over 100 yards, including Chris Godwin , who caught a go-ahead, 39-yard touchdown pass with 9 seconds left.Definitely sour to end it with not our best performance of the year by far, Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins said. But the beauty of this is we get another shot, and this time it really means something.Notes: LT Terron Armstead (thigh), DE Trey Hendrickson (ankle) and TE Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion) all practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday after not playing in Tampa Bay last Sunday. Several other regulars practiced on a limited basis, including leading receiver Michael Thomas (hamstring), guard Senio Kelemete (knee), tight end Josh Hill (shoulder) and special teams regular Justin Hardee. Teddy Bridgewater has played only 19 snaps this season. He will up the count Sunday.The only question is: How much?Drew Brees revealed Wednesday that Bridgewater will see playing time against the Panthers.No doubt, Brees said of Bridgewater playing Carolina Panthers Hoodie , via Josh Katzenstein of the .The Saints secured home-field advantage with last weeks victory over the Steelers. With nothing on the line for New Orleans on Sunday, Brees likely wont play much, if at all.Whatever Im asked to do, Im ready to do, Brees said.Brees has passed for 3,992 yards, and if he doesnt throw for 8 yards against the Panthers, he will finish with fewer than 4,000 passing yards in a season for the first time since 2005. He doesnt care.No C.J. Anderson Jersey , it deosnt, Brees said when asked if the 4,000-yard mark held significance. Not at all. It doesnt define me at all.

FRISCO Dallas Cowboys T-Shirts , Texas (AP) When the Dallas Cowboys announced a contract extension for Jaylon Smith, it was first a celebration of the linebackers journey from a career-threatening knee injury in college to one of the NFLs richest contracts at his position.Of course, it didnt take long for the focus to turn to holdout running back Ezekiel Elliott, or the question of deals for quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Amari Cooper with each entering the final year of his rookie contract.There is less pie left, owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday. Make no bones about it. There is less pie.Smith and the Cowboys agreed on a $64 million, five-year extension with $33.5 million guaranteed for the 2016 second-round pick. The average annual value of $12.8 million on the extension is among the top five for inside linebackers.The 24-year-old essentially lost a year on his rookie contract because Smith spent his rookie season on the non-football injury list after the devastating left knee injury in his final game at Notre Dame, where was an All-American in 2015.Both sides said the deal came together in a matter of days amid continuing talk of the missing Elliott, the two-time rushing champion who wants a new contract while having two years left on the current one. Elliotts holdout has lasted almost a month.For me its about being a Dallas Cowboy for life , Smith said. Really, technically, with the tender year, the Cowboys have my rights for two more years. For us to get an extension like this, is just a testament to how much we love one another and we believe in one another as well.Smith started all 16 games for the Cowboys last season, when he was second on the team in tackles (150) and tackles for loss (five). He played in all 16 games, with six starts, when he made his NFL debut in 2017.Before nerve damage associated with tearing a ligament in his knee during Notre Dames 44-28 loss to Ohio State in the Orange Bowl on New Years Day 2016 Dallas Cowboys Hoodie , Smith was considered a top prospect. While plenty of teams wondered if he could play again, the Cowboys took him with the 34th overall pick.He has never complained, Jones said while fighting his emotions. He has never wavered. Never missed a workout. And hes never quit. Not one time. His story is one that I would have done anything to be sure that it could be sure that it could be a Dallas Cowboys story.Smith struggled in his first season, in part because the Cowboys had to rely on him more than planned because of injuries to Sean Lee. The progress was dramatic last year as the defense helped keep Dallas in contention while the offense struggled.The Cowboys won the NFC East, beat Seattle in a wild-card game and lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round.I couldnt lift my foot for a year and two months, Smith said of the time after the injury. They were able to show their true belief in me. Its just the beginning. I received my new contract after only 22 starts. So Ive got a bunch of starts left. Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday to discuss an incident at a Las Vegas music festival earlier this offseason.Elliott had a confrontation with security guard Kyle Johnson, who said that Elliott shoved him. Elliott was briefly handcuffed, but criminal charges were not filed. Johnson requested a sincere apology from Elliott and Goodell sought a conversation as part of a process examining if Elliott Troy Aikman Color Rush Jersey , who served a six-game suspension in 2017, violated the Personal Conduct Policy.Elliott posted a message on Twitter after the meeting that included both an apology and a rundown of what he said he and Goodell discussed on Tuesday.Earlier today, I met with the Commissioner to share with him what occurred in Las Vegas and what I have learned from that incident. Ive worked hard to make better decisions and to live up to the high standards that are expected of me.I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision. I apologized to Kyle Johnson at the time and I meant it.I need to work harder to ensure I do not put myself in compromised situations in the future. I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again.Elliott is expected at training camp with the Cowboys later this month.

Cornerback Chris Harris spent much of the offseason away from the Broncos before landing a new deal for the 2019 season in late May and joining the teams final practices before training camp.That was a small window of time to work with new head coach Vic Fangio , but Harris said it was productive because Fangio is all about business and clear cut about what hes looking for from his players. Harris also said that he believes his skills are a great match for the things Fangio is looking for from his cornerbacks.Its the perfect defense for a corner, especially for me, Harris said during an appearance on . I can blitz, I get to do everything that Ive been doing and more. He has the right scheme to get his DBs lots of interceptions, like weve seen with the Bears. I think they had almost 30 interceptions last year as a defense. In this system, I definitely feel like everybodys got a chance to get their interceptions up.Offensive struggles have played a big part in the teams 20-28 record over the last three seasons, but a return to the overwhelming defensive efforts from years past would still be welcome in Denver. Harris can play a major role in helping make that happen as he plays out the final year of his contract with the Broncos. Von Miller was tactful in his words but clear in his meaning. Chris Harris Jr. has done enough to earn an extension from the Denver Broncos." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteMile High Reporta Denver Broncos communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsBroncosOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Filed under:Denver Broncos NewsVon Miller believes Chris Harris Jr. has done everything right; deserves extensionNew,86commentsVon Miller was tactful in his words but clear in his meaning. Chris Harris Jr. has done enough to earn an extension from the Denver Broncos. Von Miller believes Chris Harris Jr. has done everything right; deserves extensionRon Chenoy-USA TODAY SportsNo one can avoid the Denver Broncos and Chris Harris Jr. contract situation, not even Von Miller. After the first day of OTAs on Monday, Miller was asked about just that. I feel for Chris, Von Miller said. I definitely feel for Chris. Sometimes when you first get here they tell you that you play and you play well, theyll take care of you if you do all of the rights. If you do all of the right things in the community and you do all of the right things on the football field, theyll take care of you. Chris has definitely done everything and then some. Whether its in the community with his foundation or on the football fieldhes always on the No. 1 receiver, hes a top DB in the league. You want to take care of guys like that. But its not all simple. Its not all as simple as it seems. I understand that. Ive been through that before. Guys like Chris Harris who have done it all Denver Broncos Customized Jerseys , really hit all of the check marks and all of the boxes, you want to take care of guys like. He deserves it 100 percent.Miller basically said it all in one response, but its more than just what he thinks about the situation - its also about the bonds of friendship. He and Harris came into the league together and have gone to battle for each other year in and year out. Together they have been the foundation of the franchise for a decade. Yeah, I talk to Chris all the time, Miller said of his contact with Harris in the offseason. Thats my brother, thats my guy. This is our ninth year playing football together. You only play football with guys in college for four to five years, and you create bonds and connections that last a lifetime in just four to five years. Ive been with Chris and his family for nine years now. Thats my brother. Ive seen him grow. I was with him before he had his first daughter and now he has three of them. Hes like family to me. I definitely talk to him and we kind of go through the process together. It takes a while and youve just got to stay level headed. With a guy like Chris, you would thinklike hes done every single thing right on and off the football field. Hes checked every single box. Undrafted free agent, got a contract, played well through that first contract, played well through his second contract, and with guys like that, the message you want to send is like, Hey Denver Broncos T-Shirts , if you come out here and you perform, you will get whats right for you. Chris definitely has to get whats right for him. Hes done everything right.Miller is absolutely correct. Harris has done everything right and has been an exemplary teammate and representative of the franchise. Those factors should play a larger role in Elways decision-making here than mere statistics of the dreaded cornerback age wall. There were reports that Harris agent and Elway got into a yelling match before the draft, which has made these negotiations pretty contentious. They spoke again within the last week, but the demand of $15 million a year remained the same. The Broncos are expected to make a counter offer. It wont be for the full amount. The question that remains is whether Elway will take that demand personally or if Harris will take the counter offer personally. The hope is that cooler heads will prevail, but even Miller noted that its hard to separate the emotions from the business side of things. I think both sides kind of take it personally, Miller said. Whenever you talk about money and contracts, I think both sidesits not just the player, I think its guys in the front office that take it personally too. They want to get a great deal done too and have a solid deal too. I think both sides kind of take it personally. If you really focus on business and its all about business, its easy to get it done. You look at whats been done and you look at what you want to do going forward, and whether you want to pay the guy or you dont want to pay the guy, you just go from there. I think all the time really the delay comes from both sides taking it personally. If you just focus on business itll be easy to get the deal done.Rational minds are rarely at work when millions of dollars are at stake. Harris took a hometown discount with his first big payday, but after nine years of Hall-of-Fame caliber pay, he is rightfully looking for one more show of appreciation from the team he has played his heart out for.If, somehow Denver Broncos Hats , the Broncos and Harris could work out a short term deal that brings Harris pay more in line with his play on the field then that would be a good thing. Lock him down for the next two or three years with a fourth year option, then see where things go after that.It would be sad to see Harris go before he is a couple of years away from actual retirement from the NFL. Aging veterans in todays NFL often finish their careers on various teams, but for a player who is a lock for a teams Ring of Fame it would be nice to see a majority of his playing career for that team. The situation the Denver Broncos and Harris Jr. find themselves in today is not all that unlike the situation Miller and the team faced in the months after winning Super Bowl 50 in 2016. The biggest difference is that Miller was just reaching height of his playing career, while Harris is looking at the tail end of that height. However, the negotiations between the Broncos and Millers agent were anything but cozy that spring and summer of 2016. It was often contentious and even troublesome, but in the end the two sides found a way to make it happen.Knowing what I know nowI think everything happens for a reason, and I love being a Denver Bronco, Miller said. I think the direction and the vision that I had was to stay here. If you dont want to be a Denver Bronco and you dont want to be on the team where youre at, there are a lot of different routes, a lot of different opinions and a lot of different things you can do. Me, I really wanted to be here and I really wanted to be a Denver Bronco for life. You kind of have to feather that out. You cant just come up here and do this or do that. I want to be here forever, so I think the route that I took would be the same route.It really came down to Miller wanting to be in Denver and the Broncos wanting Von to be in Denver. Hopefully the same conclusion comes out of this dispute.

Jared Goff was born in California and played his college ball for California before beginning his pro career in Southern California with the Los Angeles Rams.The Golden State kid looked a little lost in the Windy City.Harassed by Chicagos fierce pass rush all night long , Goff threw a career-high four interceptions in a costly 15-6 loss to the Bears on Sunday at a chilly Soldier Field. Several of Goffs passes wobbled coming out of his right hand, and it was hard to tell where he was going on a couple more throws.Its definitely tough to play in a big-time game like that and not play well and not win and not do what you want to do, Goff said. But at the same time were 11-2, won the division with three weeks left and have everything in front of us and feel really good about that.The loss dropped Los Angeles into a tie with New Orleans in the race for home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The Saints hold the tiebreaker after topping the Rams 45-35 on Nov. 4.Goff and company had won three in a row since falling short in New Orleans, averaging 40 points during the streak. But Los Angeles prolific offense was completely shut down by Khalil Mack and the Bears (9-4).They did a good job getting some pressure and then they played tight coverage and there really just werent many plays to make tonight because of some of the selections that I had, second-year Rams coach Sean McVay said. So certainly dont blame Jared for a lot of bad spots that I put him in.Goff was 20 for 44 for a season-low 180 yards. NFL rushing leader Todd Gurley managed just 28 yards on 11 carries, both season lows. Greg Zuerlein booted a 40-yard field goal attempt off the right upright at a key moment in the fourth quarter.It was on everybody Walter Payton Color Rush Jersey , we all played bad, Gurley said. Coaches down to the players.Goff threw his first interception on Los Angeles third possession. Bears defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard pushed Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth into Goff, and his wobbly pass went right to Roquan Smith for the rookie linebackers first career pick .Smiths 22-yard return to the Rams 4 set up Cody Parkeys 31-yard field goal with 9:24 left in the second quarter.They had a good scheme for us and did a good job, but we got to be better and that starts with me, Goff said.Goff threw another interception on a Hail Mary on the final play of the half, but the game was tied at 6 at the break.Chicago then went ahead to stay when Eddie Goldman tackled Goff in the end zone on the Rams first drive of the third for the Bears first safety of the season. Goff also was sacked by Mack in the third quarter and brought down by Akiem Hicks on a fourth-down play in the fourth.Los Angeles had a chance to get back in the game when John Johnson III intercepted Mitchell Trubisky in the third and took it back 35 yards to the Chicago 27. But Goff gave it right back, throwing an interception to Kyle Fuller on the next play.Goffs last interception went to Prince Amukamara late in the fourth quarter Gale Sayers Jersey , sealing the loss for the Rams (11-2).I thought I put him in really bad spots tonight, McVay said.Goff also struggled in last Sundays 30-16 win at Detroit, going 17 for 33 for 207 yards and a touchdown with an interception. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft said he feels fine and just needs to play better.I dont think this will be the last time I have a bad game, he said. And I dont think it will be the last time I have two bad games in a row if I play for as long as I want to.______ Welcome to "tweener" season, that time between the draft and rookie minicamps" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteWindy City GridironWindy City Gridiron - Being who you thought we were since 2005!Log In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsBearsOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Latest NewsThe Bears DenNotesXs and OsSuperfansThe Bears Den, April 30, 2019New ,137commentsWelcome to tweener season, that time between the draft and rookie - We strive to make our communities open and inclusive to sports fans of all backgrounds.
