outside against Central Arkansas z

LANDOVER, Md. James Neal Predators Jersey . -- Maybe this time, the Dallas Cowboys really are ready to win without Tony Romo. Certainly a turnover-free Dak Prescott helps in that regard.From the last game of the 2013 season through the end of last season, Dallas went 1-13 when Romo was unavailable. With fourth-round draft pick Prescott suddenly elevated to the starting QB spot when Romo hurt his back late in the preseason, the Cowboys will take a 1-1 record into next weeks game against the Chicago Bears.Prescott was 22 for 30 for 292 yards plus a 6-yard scamper for a touchdown in a 27-23 victory at the Washington Redskins on Sunday. That followed a one-point loss to the New York Giants in Week One.You see him do the right thing -- and good things -- when hes under pressure, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. Hes like a sponge. ... He has an overachiever attitude about soaking it up.The best sign for the future, according to teammates, was the way Prescott was calm during the 10-play, 80-yard drive in the fourth quarter that led to the go-ahead points on former Redskins running back Alfred Morris 4-yard TD run.He treated it like it was the first play of the game, receiver Dez Bryant said. It says a lot about him as a person. He was ready for this game. He is built for this kind of stuff.What else we learned from Cowboys-Redskins:FIXES NEEDED: Washingtons game at the New York Giants next Sunday becomes quite significant. Coach Jay Grudens Redskins are 0-2 ; the Giants are 2-0. We can hang our heads and cry all we want to, Gruden said, but the fact of the matter is, we got a game at 1 oclock next Sunday. Asked in what ways his team regressed after winning the NFC East last season, Gruden replied: I cant put my finger on them right now. I think its a combination of a lot of things. Weve got to fix them, quick. Among the problems: QB Kirk Cousins now has three interceptions and one TD this season.RECEIVING LINE: Not only is Bryant going to become more and more involved in Dallas offense -- after one catch for 8 yards in Week One, he had seven for 102 yards against Washington -- but it looks as if Cole Beasley could be Prescotts No. 2 target going forward , rather than Terrance Williams. Through two games, Beasley has 13 receptions for 140 yards; Williams has three catches for 34 yards, with zero targets Sunday.NO ADJUSTMENTS: Redskins DL Ricky Jean Francois wants to see his defensive coaches make more adjustments to counter what opposing offenses do. He sees a trend going back to last season. Every team that adjusts to us, we dont adjust to them, Jean Francois said. Every team we play against, it just feels like they see something and they pounce on it and they keep doing it -- and it feels like were just not responding. Dallas ran for 102 yards on 30 carries, and Jean Francois said it looked to him as if the Redskins were stuffing inside runs, so the Cowboys started taking rushing plays outside -- and Washington never accounted for that.ZEKES BALL SECURITY: Seems a safe bet that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, the No. 4 overall draft pick, is going to put in extra time working on protecting the football: He fumbled twice against Washington. Morris said he told Elliott: You have to have short-term memory. At the same time, youve got to be able to take care of the ball. If you dont take care of the ball, then you cant be on the field. Thats just the way it goes.DURANT STEPS UP: For a Dallas defense missing DeMarcus Lawrence, Randy Gregory and Rolando McClain because of suspensions, a familiar face could wind up with a bigger role than expected. LB Justin Durant played last season with Atlanta, but hes back with the Cowboys, and the nine-year pro broke up a fourth-and-1 pass with just under two minutes to play Sunday. He cut in front of a ball intended for Pierre Garcon, knocked it down. No other way that I can get that feeling -- especially being in somebody elses place and feeling the air come out of the building, Durant said.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich ;Custom Nashville Predators Jersey . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. P.K Subban Jersey . LOUIS -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59. http://www.nhlpredatorshockeystore.com/craig-smith-jersey/ . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. MADISON, Wis. -- The offense is a work in progress for No. 9 Wisconsin, but the defense is in midseason form.Bronson Koenig had 16 points, Nigel Hayes scored 10 of his 14 in the second half and the Badgers held Central Arkansas to 28 percent shooting while opening a season of high expectations with a 79-47 win Friday night.The Badgers were never seriously threatened after building a 20-point lead with 15:46 left following an 8-0 run. Hayes did all the scoring with two 3-pointers and a layup.But all that time they spent on defense in preseason practice paid off in the opener at the Kohl Center.Weve done a lot of drills, pulled drills out from yesteryear, put a lot of focus on that, because I knew we were going to have to be a really good defensive team, coach Greg Gard said.Its just one game, but the defensive effort bodes well for when rough-and-tumble Big Ten play starts in late December. Wisconsin pulled away after Central Arkansas got to 19-17 with 7:13 left in the first half.You know about their defense, Bears coach Russ Pennell said. Then we see it up close and personal, you see how good it is. ... They just dont give you anything easy.The Badgers pride themselves on halfcourt defense, in particular how they defend ball-screen and close driving lanes. They were a little over-aggressive early on the boards before asserting their muscles to outrebound Central Arkansas 45-29.I thought we showed a lot of promise and we had flashes of playing really good defense, Koenig said.Once Wisconsin started knocking down shots against the Bears matchup zone, it was no contest.Hayes, the Big Ten preseason player of the year, was 5 of 10 from the field. He finished 2 for 6 from 3-point range after missing his first three shots from behind the arc.Derreck Brooks had 12 points and eight rebounds for Central Arkansas.Ethan Happ added eight points and nine rebounds for the Badgers. They have all five starters and their top nine scorers back from last seasons team that advanced to the NCAA regional semifinals.BIG PICTURECentraal Arkansas: Picked to finish 11th in the 13-team Southland Conference in a preseason coaches poll, the Bears hung in with the more talented Badgers until midway through the first half. Pekka Rinne Predators Jersey. With a rough schedule befitting a low mid-major school, Central Arkansas should draw confidence following a respectable effort against a potential Final Four team.Their size and physicality really took over in the second half . We just really werent able to stand up to that, Pennell said.Wisconsin: The Badgers are deeper and more experienced than the squad that was stunned in last years season opener by Western Illinois. DMitrik Trice scored six points off the bench in the first half Friday with two 3s. The freshman could give Wisconsin added quickness in a reserve role when Koenig needs a breather. Sophomore Khalil Iverson displayed athleticism with a block minutes after jumping high in the air on the other end for an offensive rebound to save a possession.TAKE A SHOTIt took a little while for Wisconsin to get its bearings on offense, though Gards team finished 11 of 29 from 3-point range. With able post scorers in Hayes and Happ, the Badgers dont normally rely on 3s to score. But Gard for the most part was happy with the shots taken from outside against Central Arkansas zone.If theyre open 3s, well take them. Not that we necessarily just want to shoot all 3s, but it works for the Warriors, joked the verbose Hayes, referring to the NBAs Golden State Warriors.POLL IMPLICATIONSWisconsin should stay at No. 9 in the poll next week, pending how No. 3 Kansas and No. 5 Oregon fared later Friday night.UP NEXTCentral Arkansas: A tough opening-week schedule continues with a trip on Nov. 14 to Oklahoma State.Wisconsin: At No. 22 Creighton on Nov. 15.---For more college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
