#1
CLEVELAND - Before he earned Pro Bowl trips, adulation and an enormous multimillion-dollar contract, Joe Thomas was just a talented rookie left tackle on a winning team. Air Max 97 South Beach For Sale .The Browns were 5-3 at the midway point in 2007, and Thomas figured it would be like that every season.It aint so, Joe.Seven years, several coaching changes and a carousel of starting quarterbacks later, Cleveland is 5-3 again.It feels pretty good, Thomas said after a 22-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Its been a long time. I like where we are.The Browns, beaten down for so long, are legit.Brian Hoyer threw a 34-yard TD pass to wide receiver Taylor Gabriel with 8:59 remaining, helping Cleveland complete a favourable three-game stretch with their fourth win in five games. The Browns are in the mix, and with a big game ahead on Thursday night in Cincinnati, they can make something special of this season.Cleveland was trailing 17-16 when Hoyer held on to the ball a little longer and completed his second TD pass, this one to Gabriel, an emerging undrafted free agent who has been making big plays all year.It wasnt always pretty with the way our offence was playing, said Hoyer, who ignored some boos and improved to 8-3 as Clevelands starter. But were 5-3 and weve just got to continue to improve.Hoyer finished 21 of 34 for a season-high 300 yards, two TDs and two interceptions.The Browns went 2-1 the past three weeks against Jacksonville, Oakland and Tampa Bay, who entered a combined 2-19. Cleveland may have struggled against teams it should have handled with ease, but past Browns teams would have likely lost these types of games.Things have changed quite a bit, Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden said. To be 5-3 is just amazing. Five games is the most Ive won since Ive been here.Tampa Bays Mike Glennon threw a pair of 24-yard TDs to rookie Mike Evans for the Buccaneers (1-7), who have lost four in a row and five this season by six points or less.Weve got to find a way to win a game now is what we have to do, said first-year coach Lovie Smith. Were running out of time.Billy Cundiff kicked three field goals for the improved Browns, who have the leagues attention under first-year coach Mike Pettine.Well celebrate a little bit tonight, but emphasis on a little, Pettine said. Were in a good spot and our guys are confident, but this is one here where we know we have to be all in this week.Tampa Bay had a chance in the final two minutes, but couldnt convert on a fourth-and-11 with 1:45 left. The Bucs appeared to pick up a first down on the previous play, but Evans was called for pass interference.Hoyers TD pass to Gabriel was set up by Cleveland linebacker Craig Robertson, who broke through and deflected a Tampa Bay punt to give the Browns the ball at the Bucs 35.Two plays later, Hoyer dropped back and was about to be hit by Tampa Bays Lavonte David on a blitz. But rookie running back Terrance West alertly stepped up and got a piece of the Buccaneers linebacker, giving Hoyer enough time to loft his scoring pass to Gabriel and giving the Browns a 22-17 lead.I had three good blocks today, West said. That was the best one, though.Glennon went 17 of 33 for 260 yards, and fell to 1-4 while filling in for injured starter Josh McCown.His second 24-yard scoring pass to Evans put the Bucs ahead 17-16.Glennon floated a pass to the back shoulder of Evans, who made a twisting catch and was able to get both feet in for the score. As he did after his first score, Evans looked at Clevelands sideline and rubbed his fingers together in the money-making gesture his former college teammate, Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel, made famous at Texas A&M.It just came to my mind, Evans said of his celebration. Thats one of my best buds. I just wanted to give him a hard time.A costly penalty by Tampa Bay star defensive end Gerald McCoy helped the Browns take a 16-10 lead. The Browns were lining up for a go-ahead field goal when McCoy, who signed a six-year, $95.2 million in October, was whistled for a neutral-zone infraction. Cleveland converted on fourth-and-1 and two plays later, Hoyer hit a wide-open West.NOTES: Browns S Tashaun Gipson got his sixth interception. ... Browns DE Billy Winn set up Clevelands first score by blocking a 31-yard field-goal attempt by Tampa Bays Patrick Murray. ... The Buccaneers led at halftime for the first time this season. ... Hoyers 300 yards are his most since his first start last season at Minnesota (321).___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Air Max 97 2018 . - Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II says the NFL has told the team it will not be docked a pick in this years draft for coach Mike Tomlins foray onto the field against Baltimore last November. Cheap Air Max 97 All Blue . LOUIS -- The Atlanta Braves used a two-run rally in the ninth to end their road trip with a win. http://www.cheapairmax97.us/cheap-air-max-97-purple/ . This time, Tebow was in a groove the entire second half -- not just in the waning minutes -- and his teammates on defence were getting gobbled up.ROME -- Gervinho scored a late winner as Roma beat league leader Juventus 1-0 in the Italian Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday. The Ivory Coast forward acrobatically finished Kevin Strootmans cross after a well-worked move with substitute Miralem Pjanic to line up a two-legged semifinal with either Napoli or Lazio. It was a match between the top two sides in Serie A. Roma lost 3-0 in the league to Juventus earlier this month to slip eight points behind the two-time reigning league champion. "It was a win we wanted at all costs," Roma captain Francesco Totti said. "Today we showed that we are at the same level as a great Juve side. "For me, theres not all this distance between us and them. But its normal that everyone looks at the current table. Were doing really well, but theyre going beyond the limits." It was also a matchup between the two clubs which have won competition the most times, with both boasting nine Italian Cup victories. Roma, which lost last years final to bitter rival Lazio, started well and had two good opportunities inside the opening 11 minutes but first new signing Radja Nainggolan and then Alessandro Florenzi fired wide. Juventus players and staff called fuuriously for a red card for Mehdi Benatia when he dragged down Sebastian Giovinco as the forward was attempting to race onto Andrea Pirlos long ball. Cheap Air Max 97 All Gold. . However, Benatia escaped with a booking. The home side went close to taking the lead 10 minutes from halftime when Maicon rolled a tantalizing ball across goal and past Juventus goalkeeper Marco Storari -- but there was no Roma player on hand to tap it in. Juventus had the ball in the back of the net in the opening minute of the second half but Federico Pelusos header was ruled out as Mauricio Islas cross had already gone out of play. "Maybe we were a bit too timid in the first half but I dont remember us suffering particularly," Juventus coach Antonio Conte said. "They scored when they had a good chance, while when it happened to us they ruled out the goal." Conte clearly felt the refereeing decisions had not gone Juves way, starting with Islas cross. "The ball seemed in to me," he said. "Also Benatias foul on Giovinco was that of the last man but we accept the referees decision. Its disappointing to be knocked out of a competition, but I dont have anything to reproach the lads for."
