SANTA CLARA Devin Bush Jersey , Calif. (AP) Coach Jason Garrett saw all he needed out of quarterback Dak Prescott on just one drive.Prescott made the most of his brief appearance in the preseason opener for Dallas by throwing a 30-yard touchdown pass to rookie Michael Gallup on his only drive before the San Francisco 49ers rallied with two late touchdowns to beat the Cowboys 24-21 Thursday night.I thought it was a good drive by our offense, a good mix of run and pass, Garrett said. Dak made some good decisions. He made a really nice run too keep the drive alive. We got the one-on-one opportunity down the sideline. Michael made a really good release and it was a good throw and catch.Nick Mullens threw a 7-yard TD pass to Richie James Jr. with 18 seconds left to cap the comeback. Jeremy McNichols scored on a 1-yard run with 4:24 to go for San Francisco.San Franciscos Jimmy Garoppolo didnt fare as well as Prescott in his first game action since signing a $137.5 million, five-year contract this offseason. Garoppolo completed 3 of 6 passes on his one drive.Were trying to do something different things and see what works and what doesnt, Garoppolo said. We havent been in that situation in a year and you try to get things rolling.More concerning for the 49ers was the fact that six players left with injuries in the first half with the most concerning ones being shoulder injuries to tight end George Kittle and running back Matt Breida that could sideline them for some time, according to coach Kyle Shanahan.Its what you scares you about training camp, its what scares you about the preseason, Shanahan said. You just want the game to end.Prescott sat out the first exhibition game last season but got one series of action against the 49ers this year and looked sharp. He completed all three of pass attempts and converted a third-and-9 with a 12-yard scramble.He capped his night with the deep ball to Gallup , who beat Jimmie Ward down the sideline. Ward got the start at cornerback in place of Richard Sherman, who is nursing a hamstring injury.With the release of three-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant and the retirement of 15-year tight end Jason Witten, the Cowboys are searching for receiving threats this preseason. Gallup, a third-round pick out of Colorado State, has been impressive so far in camp.Thats a good feeling, Gallup said. Especially for me being so young and being a rookie and everything, I needed that boost of confidence. It was a good feeling.NATIONAL ANTHEMNo players on either team kneeled during the national anthem, although 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin did raise his right fist throughout the song. The Niners have been at the center of the protests during national anthem ever since Colin Kaepernick began kneeling two years ago. Eric Reid protested last year but both players are no longer with the team. Linebacker Eli Harrold also kneeled during the anthem the past two years but stood to start this season.INJURIESThe Niners had a parade of injuries early Justin Layne Jersey , starting with LB Malcolm Smith limping off with a hamstring issue on the opening drive. TE George Kittle and backup RB Matt Breida left with shoulder injuries. Thomas and backup tackle Garry Gilliam were sidelined by concussions and Harrold had a lower leg injury.Cowboys OL Marcus Martin limped off the field in the second half with a toe injury, S Marqueston Huff left with a groin injury, and WR Marchie Murdock had an ankle injury.NOTEWORTHY PERFORMANCESJoe Thomas got the start at linebacker for Dallas in place of Sean Lee and delivered an interception against C.J. Beathard on a tipped pass by Kavon Frazier. Cowboys rookie RB Bo Scarbrough had a 28-yard run and scored a 1-yard TD in the second quarter. James had four catches for 46 yards and fellow rookie Dante Pettis caught a 53-yard pass .HELMET FOULThere was one penalty under the new rule prohibiting players from leading with their helmets. San Francisco LB Elijah Lee was called for the infraction on a tackle against Scarbrough in the third quarter.NEXT UPCowboys: Host Cincinnati on Aug. 18.49ers: Visit Houston on Aug. 18.
WASHINGTON A pair of old friends will reconnect when the Boston Red Sox visit the Washington Nationals on Monday night.

Former teammates Rick Porcello (9-2, 3.60) of the Red Sox and Max Scherzer (10-4, 2.04) square off for the first time in the opener of a three-game series.

Porcello and Scherzer spent five seasons together with the Detroit Tigers, reaching the 2012 World Series before losing to the San Francisco Giants.

Since leaving Detroit, Porcello won the 2016 American League Cy Young Award and Scherzer is making a strong case for his third straight National League Cy Young. Both have been aware this matchup was coming.

Looking forward to it. Weve been texting back and forth, Porcello told the Boston Globe. Weve had a good time with it and Im sure well both get a kick about going against each other once the game starts.

Scherzer is looking for his first win since June 5 , though hes pitched well enough to win each of his past four starts, allowing two earned runs or less in each outing. The Nationals are 1-3 in those starts and were shut out in each loss.

I think everybodys been punched in the face before of not having success, Scherzer told The Washington Post after his last start, a 1-0 loss to the Marlins. This is the big leagues; they are going to keep coming down your throat and keep attacking you.

Scherzer, Washingtons only dependable starter of late, is 4-4 with a 6.05 ERA in 10 starts versus Boston.

Porcello allowed four runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings last time out in a no-decision against the Angels.

Hes 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his lone start against Washington, an eight-inning effort in April of 2015.

The Nationals (42-40) squandered an early 3-0 lead in Philadelphia on Sunday and fell 4-3 in 13 innings on Andrew Knapps pinch-hit walk-off home run as Washington dropped a second straight weekend series to their division rivals.

Washington managed only four hits in eight innings against the Philadelphia bullpen in the finale.

Offensively, weve got to do more Zach Gentry Jersey , outfielder Adam Eaton told The Post. Thats plain and simple. We score early and then we cant coast. We cant take our foot off the accelerator. We got to keep going.

The Nationals are now 6-15 in their past 21 games and fell six games behind Atlanta in the NL East.

In each of their last nine losses, theyve scored three or fewer runs.

Weve got to start striking out less, manager Dave Martinez told MASN, putting the balls in play, driving in runs when we have the ability to drive in runs.

Boston (56-29) finished a three-game series against the Yankees on a forgettable note Sunday night, getting routed 11-1 behind starter David Price as New York blasted six home runs, including three by Aaron Hicks.

Price allowed eight runs on nine hits in 3 1/3 innings.

The Red Sox dropped two of three and travel south percentage points behind the Yankees in the AL East.

CHARLOTTE , N.C. (AP) Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints still have one of the leagues top-scoring offenses, but lately its the defense thats been carrying the NFLs most complete team.On a night when Brees and the offense couldnt get much going and made some uncharacteristic mistakes, New Orleans put the clamps on Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in a 12-9 victory on Monday night, moving the Saints into position to lock up home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs.I believe in us, game in and game out, first quarter to fourth quarter, defensive end Cam Jordan said. If it comes down to a crucial play, I believe in us.Article continues below ...The Saints (12-2) held an opponent to 17 points or fewer for a sixth straight game. They limited Newton to 131 yards passing, sacked him four times and forced two turnovers. Carolina (6-dirol.gif, which lost its sixth straight, had just 247 yards and 13 first downs. The Panthers only scores came on a trick play on fourth down and an interception return on a 2-point conversion attempt.So proud of the defense, Saints coach Sean Payton said. I thought they were outstanding. Its tough to win a division game on the road and we were able to do that.Alvin Kamara had 103 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown, and Brees had 203 yards passing for the Saints, who took a one-game lead in the NFC over the Rams. The Saints close the season at home against Pittsburgh and Carolina; the Rams visit Arizona and host San Francisco.Newton struggled throwing the ball more than 10 yards downfield because of a lingering sore right shoulder. He said after the game hes unsure what the injury is, but he mentioned his labrum and rotator cuff as possible issues. He has been limited in practice for weeks and doesnt have the zip on the ball he normally has.So much for his boast that the Panthers were bringing a cup to steal the juice from the Saints.(Newton) said something along the lines of they brought their own cup, a juice box or something Zach Gentry Jersey , I dont know what it was, Jordan said. But I do know that hes got to go back to the refrigerator and pull out a bigger cup.The Saints swept three games from the Panthers last season and knocked them out of the playoffs, prompting Jordan to send Newton a bottle of red wine in the offseason, while some other teammates gave him a broom. This loss likely ended Carolinas playoff hopes again.Newton said his shoulder simply isnt getting better or worse and he refused to blame the injury, saying, I have to be better.Our defense played a hell of a game and we have to reward them, Newton said. We had two turnovers in the red zone and that comes down to execution.TRICK PLAYSThe Panthers struck first after offensive coordinator Norv Turner dug into his bag of tricks.On a fourth-and-2 from midfield, Christian McCaffrey got a handoff, took a step toward the line, then stepped back and lofted a perfect pass over the middle to tight end Chris Manhertz, who was 15 yards behind the defense. Manhertz trotted into the end zone for a 50-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead. It was McCaffreys first career pass attempt, although he threw two TD passes while at Stanford. He became the first non-QB to throw a TD pass in Panthers history.APPLES PICKEli Apple intercepted Newton in the end zone with 10 seconds left in the first half.I knew they were going to take a shot, Apple said. They ran a fade route. I just tried to get my head around and make a play on the ball.COSTLY TURNOVERSThe Panthers held the Saints in check for most of the third quarter, but the game changed when Panthers receiver D.J. Moore fumbled on an inside handoff. The Saints pounced, capping an 84-yard drive with a 16-yard TD run by Kamara to make it 12-7 early in the fourth quarter. The Saints went for 2, but Brees toss was intercepted by Donte Jackson L.J. Collier Jersey , who took it back nearly 100 yards.That wasnt the only time the Saints cost themselves a scoring opportunity. New Orleans was on the verge of taking the lead late in the second quarter, but James Bradberry intercepted Brees tipped pass and returned it to Saints territory.And New Orleans whiffed on a potential game-sealing touchdown when Tommylee Lewis fumbled near the goal line, leading to a touchback that gave Carolina one last chance to tie the game with 1:44 remaining. But the Panthers couldnt move the ball and turned it over on downs.McCAFFREY SETS MARKMcCaffrey broke DeAngelo Williams single-season franchise record of 1,636 yards from scrimmage with a rush in the first quarter. He finished with 110 yards rushing and receiving.DUBIOUS STREAKThe loss extended the Panthers streak of never having posted back-to-back winning seasons since joining the NFL in 1995.OLSEN UPDATEPanthers tight end Greg Olsen had surgery on his right foot Monday, his second procedure on the foot in the last 16 months. Surgery went well and I am on my way towards a full recovery, Olsen wrote on Instagram.INJURIESSaints center Max Unger left the game in the first half after being evaluated for a concussion and did not return. He was replaced by Cameron Tom.UP NEXTSaints: Host the Steelers on Sunday.Panthers: Host the Falcons on Sunday. COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers have proven during the first half of the season that they have plenty of weapons on offense. One who has emerged is Tyrell Williams, who has become a deep threat during the past month.Going into Sundays game at Oakland, the fourth-year wide receiver has four touchdowns and is averaging 28.8 yards per catch over the past three games.Hes become a complete receiver. His receiving skills, hes just taken them to another level, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said.With Keenan Allen still drawing double teams, Williams continues to benefit from single coverage. Five of his receptions during the past three games have gone for 20 yards or more, including a 75-yarder against Tennessee on Oct. 21. He is tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (five), second in yardage (451) and third in receptions (22) during the first half of the season.I think its really just been seeing what the defense does, when to take shots, being able to get over the top and trusting my ability to go up and get the ball or run past the defense , said Williams, whose 20.5 yards per reception average is third in the league.Philip Rivers also hasnt been afraid to go to Williams on consecutive plays if the matchup is favorable. Williams caught both passes on a two-play, 89-yard drive midway through the second quarter of the Oct. 14 game at Cleveland, including a 45-yard touchdown where he got leverage over cornerback Damarious Randall.While Williams has made his biggest impact on downfield plays, he has also shown his improvement in other areas. Late in the first quarter of last Sundays game at Seattle, Williams made a diving grab on a back shoulder fade for a 14-yard touchdown while being covered by Tre Flowers.Williams said catching back shoulder passes and route running were two things that he placed added emphasis on improving this past offseason.My first few years, I was always just looking to get the ball down the field. I wasnt really prepared for back-shoulders, he said. It was kind of a timing thing and getting used to that, but now Ive kind of figured out how to be running fast but still be prepared for that back-shoulder stuff.Los Angeles (6-2) has won five straight for the first time since 2014 and will face a Raiders defense that is 24th against the pass. Williams had three receptions for 66 yards in the first meeting on Oct. 14, which the Chargers won 26-10. One of the catches was for 48 yards.Hopefully that stays the same and they dont switch it up. Its nice to get single coverage and Keenan still being able to go for 100 like he did, to be firing on all cylinders, he said.Notes: Defensive end Joey Bosa did not do any team drills, meaning hes unlikely to play in his first game of the season this week. Lynn has left open the possibility that LB Kyzir White could return later in the season. White was placed on injured reserve Saturday due to a knee injury.

The Seahawks may have gotten in 2019 a steal on par with the steal they got in 2012.Seven years after landing quarterback Russell Wilson in round three (the Jaguars took a punter with Wilson still on the board) , the Seahawks traded up to the bottom of round two to grab receiver DK Metcalf. Wilson really likes what he sees so far from the rookie.Well, its great seeing DK make his plays, Wilson told reporters on Wednesday. I think DK is looking really, really special. He can do anything and everything and hes tremendous.Metcalf generated plenty of pre-draft buzz given his size, physique Nick Bosa Jersey , and speed. But a history of injuries coupled with a reputation for having a limited route tree dragged him out of round one and almost into round three.Coach Pete Carroll has no qualms about throwing rookies into the fray, as he did with Wilson. Given the absence of Doug Baldwin, the Seahawks have a need at the position, and Metcalf could fill it right away. John Elway is the man in Denver, and every quarterback who has come since him Dwayne Haskins Jersey , aside from maybe Peyton Manning, has played in his shadow. Joe Flacco grew up watching Elway win two Super Bowls for the Broncos, including a Super Bowl MVP performance. Flacco has a Super Bowl ring and Super Bowl MVP award of his own.He would like to join Elway and Manning in bringing a title to Denver.First, though, Flacco has to get accustomed to playing for and in front of Elway.You dont think about it , Flacco said, via Nicki Jhabvala of A lot of that stuff, you dont think about it in that way. For me, I grew up watching John Elway. So while were kind of colleagues now, and were sharing the same field Jaylon Ferguson Jersey , theres still a little bit of that little kid in you like, Oh, man, John Elway is standing right next to me. So you try to act as normal as possible and shoot the breeze and just act like youre a normal person.I think its a really cool opportunity, to be honest with you. Listen Quinnen Williams Jersey , I know John is the man around here. Hopefully, theres room for a couple more people.

Heres how positive Nick Foles is he can make a 41-point loss into a good thing.The Eagles quarterback said the Week 11 loss to the Saints (which he didnt play in) was a springboard for the team Clelin Ferrell Jersey , and helped harden them for what would become another impressive playoff push.That game has helped us become the team we are today, Foles said, via Tim McManus of Going through that, thats not easy as a team to lose like that. But there was never a pointing of the finger. It actually brought us closer. It can separate a team or it can bring us closer, and it brought us closer.After that 48-7 beating, the Eagles were 4-6 and didnt appear to be heading anywhere. When Carson Wentzs back became an issue , it didnt look much better.The Eagles also have to answer questions about whether the Saints were running up the score on them, after safety Malcolm Jenkins flipped the bird at Saints coach Sean Payton after a late touchdown. All that will be filed away in advance of this weeks divisional round game.At that point in time, obviously, thats the low point of our season. But at no point did we doubt that we have the locker room, Jenkins said. We just knew that we had to put it together. Since then, I think we responded and earned our opportunity to go back down there.Winning five of six after that game suggests the Eagles responded correctly Johnathan Abram Jersey , and last weeks miraculous win over the Bears might be a sign that this result could be quite different. Jordan Howard has the third-most rushing yards in the league over the last three seasons, but the Bears still traded him to the Eagles for a conditional 2020 sixth-round pick this offseason.Many felt the impetus for the deal was Howards limited impact as a receiver out of the backfield. He has 72 career catches and his 20 grabs last season were a new low, but Howard said on Monday that he believes the Eagles are going to give him more to do on offense.Offensive coordinator Mike Groh said the team has to keep throwing him balls because hes been catching them in practice and Howard sounds happy to be in a more diverse offense than the one he remembers from Chicago.I feel like theyre allowing me to do more, show my game off more instead of just being one-dimensional like Chicago had me, Howard said, via pick Miles Sanders has been out in OTAs due to a hamstring injury and his return will likely have some impact on how Howard is used come the regular season. If he keeps catching the ball , though, the shift for Howard may not include coming off the field when the team wants to throw the ball.

In the countless analytics Zach Gentry Jersey , stats and roundabout discussions about pro football, one thing often goes unnoticed. Thats the team uniform. Uniforms are what unite us as fans. Theyre like battles lines being drawn in the sand. It isnt just an efficient way of separating teams and figuring out whos who, but a symbol of what that team is supposed to represent as a franchise. Uniforms change over time Chris Lindstrom Jersey , aesthetically theyre the most eye pleasing aspect about football. Some uniforms change more than others though and that isnt always a bad thing. Some teams actually benefit greatly from a new look, while others especially older franchises like to keep the design consistent in most aspects.So what makes a good NFL uniform? Well for starters, it has to stand out from other uniforms in the league. Were not talking about colors or anything like that , were saying it has to look unique. You can have five blue uniforms but only have one of them really catch your eye with its design. How recognizable these uniforms are is another good aspect to hone in on. What they do with their color schemes, images used, how well it relates to the team all that and more are what goes into a great uniform. So lets get into it. Heres every NFL teams uniform ranked worst to best. The Jets have made a couple of additions to their offensive line this offseason and they met with another possible newcomer to the team on Monday.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that they had tackle Andre Smith in for a visit. The Jets traded for guard Kelechi Osemele and signed guard Tom Compton as a free agent last month.Smith closed out the 2018 season with a third stint in Cincinnati. He opened the year with the Cardinals Kendall Sheffield Jersey , but was released in November after making eight starts at right tackle. He entered the league as a 2009 first-round pick by the Bengals and spent seven years with the team before joining the Vikings as a free agent in 2016. He returned to the Bengals as a free agent the next year.Smith would bring a lot of starting experience 93 starts to a Jets line that has Kelvin Beachum and Brandon Shell set to start at the tackle spots in 2019.
