seconds left.The Raiders 0-7 start

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Kings might be the NHLs best defensive team, and they hadnt blown a two-goal lead in a loss in nearly a full calendar year. Melky Cabrera White Sox Jersey . The Toronto Maple Leafs broke down that defence and pulled out an impressive road victory despite nearly running out of goalies along the way. Mason Raymond broke a tie with a short-handed goal early in the third period and the Maple Leafs snapped the Kings eight-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory Thursday night. James Reimer made 31 saves in the final two periods after replacing the injured Jonathan Bernier for the Leafs, who have won four of five. Captain Dion Phaneuf and Carl Gunnarsson also scored as Toronto beat both Southern California NHL clubs in a four-day span, albeit with a blowout loss at the Shark Tank sandwiched in between. "We need every point that we can possibly get," Toronto coach Randy Carlyle said. "Were in desperation mode as every team is, and we just found a way to gut it out. We gave up a two-goal lead, and we found a way to get a big goal." After the Leafs erased that early 2-0 deficit, Raymond put them ahead with 14:54 to play. Kopitar was stopped by Reimer on a golden scoring chance, and Raymond alertly countered on a 2-on-1 rush with James van Riemsdyk for Raymonds 19th goal. Bernier gave up two goals in the first period of his first game back in Los Angeles against the team that traded him last summer, but then sat out the final two periods with a lower-body injury. Reimer filled in admirably, making a number of stunning saves. "I wouldnt blow it up too big," Reimer said. "I just came in and did my job. Every time you go in is an opportunity." Reimer, who gave up six goals in San Jose, also got up quite slowly in the second period after getting an accidental blow to the head from Jarret Stoll when the goalie dived to stop a puck. Reimer eventually shook it off, but said he "got (his) bell rung." "I was sitting beside Bernier when that happened," said Nazem Kadri, who had two assists. "I told him to take off his pads. I might have to throw them on." Marian Gaborik had an early goal and an assist in his home debut with the Kings, who fell just short of matching the longest winning streak in franchise history. Anze Kopitar had a power-play goal and Jonathan Quick stopped 26 shots in his first loss since Feb. 3. After losing nine of 10 in a skid stretching into early February, the Kings won their final game before the Olympic break and hadnt lost since. This loss prevented the Kings from equaling their record nine-game streak in 2010. "Its a stinger every time you lose after a pretty strong road trip," Kopitar said. "We didnt want to start off a homestand with a loss. I dont know how they execute their system, but it seemed like they were skating and playing a tight-checking game. But it was just a case of our game tonight not getting it done." Gaborik still came through in the Slovak goal-scorers fourth game with the club, providing exactly the boost they sought for their sagging offence. Wearing their Forum-blue-and-gold throwback jerseys, the Kings went ahead just 1:57 in when the rebound of Drew Doughtys low shot went straight to Gaborik, who scored his seventh goal of the season. "I think its coming along," Gaborik said of his line with Kopitar and Justin Williams. "We had some chemistry with our line and created some chances, so I think its going the right way." Kopitar then scored a power-play goal on a beautiful cross-ice pass from Doughty, the gold medal-winning Canadian defenceman. Gunnarsson tied it up early in the second with just his second goal in 67 games this season. Bernier was the 11th overall pick in the 2006 draft by Kings general manager Dean Lombardi. He played 62 games for Los Angeles over five NHL seasons, but never managed to beat out Quick, a lower-round pick by a previous regime who eventually became the Kings Conn Smythe Trophy winner. Lombardi traded Bernier to Toronto in a deal for Ben Scrivens -- since traded to Edmonton -- and Matt Frattin, who was sent to Columbus in the deal for Gaborik. Bernier lost 3-1 to the Kings in Toronto in December. NOTES: Mike Richards accidentally shot the puck into teammate Justin Williams face with 3 minutes to play. Williams stayed in the game. ... Toronto scratched C Peter Holland, who has the flu. ... The Kings announced their 100th consecutive sellout at Staples Center since December 2011. Alex Avila Jersey . "I wouldnt read anything into what happened Saturday at Torrey Pines," Woods said Tuesday after an 18-hole exhibition for past winners of the Dubai Desert Classic. Jose Abreu Jersey .J. -- Having Ondrej Pavelec earn his 100th NHL win and seeing Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane break goal droughts were nice highlights for the Winnipeg Jets.Call it the Romo Factor.Seems like everyone has tunnel vision on Dallas quarterback Tony Romo heading into the Cowboys game Sunday with Arizona. It might also be a good idea to focus on the Cardinals, who have the NFCs best record at 6-1 and despite injuries of their own are finding ways to prosper.Sure, Romos injury is a big story in Big D and elsewhere, particularly after he injured his back on national television last Monday night — then returned to the game. His status being uncertain for this huge matchup deserves some headlines, as well.And so do the Cardinals (6-1). The previous time they had sole possession of the best record in NFC this late in an NFL season was Week 11 of 1974. They lived in St. Louis then and were 7-0.This superb start has occurred despite a slew of injuries.Clutch performances and brilliant coaching have been at the heart of Arizonas success.Realizing all the negative things that happened and we still keep getting wins, I do think we have a good swagger about us, a confidence, and that will continue to live if we keep winning, quarterback Carson Palmer said.To improve their spotless conference record to 5-0, the Cardinals must slow down Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray. He has an NFL record eight straight 100-yard rushing games to start season.But the Cardinals havent allowed a 100-yard rusher in 17 straight outings.Wow! said Cowboys play caller Scott Linehan. No, I know theyre good. I didnt know what the streak was. They know where theyre rated defensively. We obviously respect our opponent greatly. But we spend a lot more talking about what we want to get done regardless what theyve done or theyve been able to do, and I think you focus on that and what our goal is, then I think its a better way to approach it as far as the teams mindset and focus.The action began this week with New Orleans romping 28-10 at Carolina on Thursday night. The Saints (4-4) won on the road for the first time to move atop the NFC South for the first time this season. The Panthers (3-5-1) have lost three straight.Mark Ingram ran for two TDs and Drew Brees rushed for one and threw to Jimmy Graham for another.Off this week are Atlanta (2-6), Buffalo (5-3), Chicago (3-5), Detroit (6-2), Green Bay (5-3), and Tennessee (2-6).Denver (6-1) at New England (6-2)Yet another classic might be in store in the Peyton Manning-Tom Brady rivalry, the longest and best between two brilliant quarterbacks that the modern NFL has seen.Heres an added twist: Sunday is the first game in NFL history matching quarterbacks with more than 150 regular-season wins.Brady, now 37, is 10-5 against Manning, now 38, including 8-3 in the regular season. Brady has led the Patriots to three straight wins over Denver in the regular season, two of those with Manning at the Broncos helm.Both are playing lights-out recently, and Manning is tied for the longest streak in NFL history with 13 games of two or more TD passes.Maybe when Im his age, Ill be playing as well as that, cracked Brady.Thats the cold, hard facts, Manning replied.Baltimore (5-3) at Pittsburgh (5-3)One more terrific matchup, this one between nasty AFC North rivals. The Ravens beat the Steelers in Week 2 and dont mind going to Heinz Field, where theyve won three of the past four meetings.Nor does Baltimore mind entering November, in which coach John Harbaugh is 20-7.The Steelers come off a record-setting victory over Indianapolis, 51-34. Ben Roethlisberger set club marks with 522 yards passing and six touchdowns, and his ace receiver, Antonio Brown, has at least five receptions and 80 yards receiving in each of the first eight games.Jacksonville (1-7) at Cincinnati (4-2-1)The Jaguars might have found an offensive star, and its not rookie QB Blake Bortles. Running back Denard Robinson — you might remember him as a quarterback at Michigan — has rushed for more than 100 yards in each of the past two games. Cincinnatis defence ranks 29th against the run.While the Bengals are eager to get back standout receiver A.J. Green from his toe injury, they too have some budding brilliance on offence. WR Mohamed Sanu had a career-high 125 yards on five catches last week and leads the Bengals with 35 catches for 533 yards and three TDs. He also has run three reverses for 31 yards and completed two passes for 68 yards and a TD.Mos been playing great, quarterback Andy Dalton said. I have a lot of confidence in him, and he has a lot of confidence in himself that hes going to make plays.Inddianapolis (5-3) at New York Giants (3-4), Monday nightNo more Peyton vs. Luke Appling White Sox Jersey. Eli, yet still an intriguing matchup with Andrew Luck running Indys offence. The Colts had their five-game winning streak shattered to the tune of 51-34 at Pittsburgh, but Luck has passed for at least 300 yards in six straight games, surpassing Peytons longest streak in Colts history.New York comes off a bye and two straight road losses.Philadelphia (5-2) at Houston (4-4)Philly could use some better decision making by quarterback Nick Foles, but hes also been quite productive. In last Sundays tight loss at Arizona, he set a team mark with 36 completions and had his third career 400-yard passing game last week. But hes also been picked nine times after being intercepted only twice in 2013.Worth watching in this one will be Houstons dynamic defensive end, J.J. Watt, and how much top overall draft pick LB Jadeveon Clowney can contribute in his second game back from arthroscopic knee surgery that cost him six games.St. Louis (2-5) at San Francisco (4-3)While the injury-ravaged Rams were further battered in last weeks loss to Kansas City — LT Jake Long now is gone for the season — the 49ers were off. Doesnt quite seem fair.These teams met three weeks ago, when the Niners rallied from a 14-point deficit.Watch for 49ers RB Frank Gore, who has 1,229 yards rushing against St. Louis, the most by any player against the Rams in NFL history.Oakland (0-7) at Seattle (4-3)Yes, the Seahawks havent looked much like a championship team, so maybe the winless Raiders are the perfect tonic. Seattle barely broke a two-game slide with a last-minute victory at Carolina, needing more late heroics from Russell Wilson. The third-year quarterback led his 12th fourth-quarter or overtime comeback last week, capped by his 23-yard TD pass to Luke Willson with 47 seconds left.The Raiders 0-7 start is their worst since losing the first 13 games of the 1962 season.New York Jets (1-7) at Kansas City (4-3)The Jets have matched the Raiders in several ineptitude departments thus far, including losing seven straight. Hey, their only win was in the opener over Oakland.Mike Vick gets the start at quarterback against the coach who helped resurrect his career in Philadelphia, Andy Reid.Yeah, Mike, you guys know how proud I am of him for the man that he is and the things that hes done to change things around and kind of bounce back, Reid told New York reporters. And then as a football player, I think you probably know that, too. I joked to our media here that hes going to be 50 years old and still be the fastest guy on the field and the best arm on the field.Hes an amazing guy that way. You never slight Michael Vick.San Diego (5-3) at Miami (4-3)Miami is not where the Chargers prosper: their last victory there came on Jan. 2, 1982, in the playoffs. Theyve lost seven road games in a row against the Dolphins.And San Diego comes off two straight defeats, to Kansas City and Denver.The Dolphins have won two straight, road victories against Chicago and Jacksonville. This is the first of four consecutive matchups against winning opponents.Washington (3-5) at Minnesota (3-5)Two teams coming off overtime wins — yes, its happened before, as recently as 2008.Each coach was with the Bengals last year. Mike Zimmer was Cincinnatis defensive co-ordinator before heading to the Vikings; Jay Gruden ran the offence for the Bengals before moving to DC.We competed every day in practice, Gruden said. It was not friendly, usually. Both of us are pretty good competitors and we all wanted to win the drill, definitely ... so we had our share of arguments and tension, but ultimately I have a ton of respect for him.And from Zimmer: I coached with him for two years so Im pretty familiar, but hes pretty familiar with me as well. Hes very innovative, changes a lot from week to week from what they do, tries to use the players to the best of their abilities.Tampa Bay (1-6) at Cleveland (4-3)Another reunion, this one of first-round rookies from Texas A&M. Big difference, though: Tampa WR Mike Evans is a regular, Browns QB Johnny Manziel is a backup.The Bucs rank last in overall offence and defence so far, a huge disappointment in their first season under Lovie Smith.Clevelands first-year head coach, Mike Pettine, has fared much better, but his Browns need a win badly because they have a difficult second-half schedule.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL 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 ' ' '
