close-range Charlie Daniels effort from a corner that crashed off the crossbar. After, Tottenhams Erik Lamela

Fourth-and-no is becoming fourth-and-go in the NFL. Cheap Air Jordan 3 Retro Green .More coaches are going for it in situations that used to be automatic punts or field-goal attempts. Through Week 13, teams went on fourth down 350 times and converted 181 or 51.7 percent.Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden made perhaps the boldest call when Washington faced fourth-and-inches from its 41-yard line with a 29-24 lead and 6:12 remaining against the Green Packers on Nov. 20.Going for it meant risking the possibility that Aaron Rodgers would get the ball close enough for a short field with the game on the line. It defied conventional coaching logic, but Gruden kept his offense on the field, quarterback Kirk Cousins sneaked for the first down and the Redskins went on to score and secure the win.I think its confidence in the offense, No. 1 and, quite frankly, the defense if you dont get it, that if you do give away a short field that theyll get the ball back for us, Gruden said this week. But mainly, its confidence in the offense. We have a big, physical offensive line, we have got a big back, and we have a quarterback where if we want to do a bootleg or if we want to drop back and throw it, we have confidence that he can make an accurate throw.Confidence in the offensive line that can get movement, we can get a foot or a yard or 2 yards, and confidence in the quarterback to get it done.For Cousins, it was an easy decision, even if teams holding leads late in the fourth quarter usually punt in that situation.I think you had to do it, Cousins said. Its just a matter of which play to call and how do we execute it versus the front or blitz that they will bring.No team has more fourth-down attempts than Philadelphias 19. But coach Doug Pedersons aggressive playcalling cost the Eagles (5-7) a win against the New York Giants in November.Pederson passed up two chip-shot field goals to go on fourth downs in the first half. Both attempts failed. The Eagles lost 28-23 after failing to score a touchdown on four tries from the Giants 17 in the final minute.Obviously, six points wouldve made a difference. But Pederson had no regrets and stuck by decisions that backfired.It shows confidence and belief in the guys, Pederson said. At that time, I felt like we were moving the ball.Last week, teams were 17 for 30 on fourth down. Several of those attempts came at odd times during games, including a few in the Texans-Packers game played in snow.The Texans went on fourth-and-1 from the Packers 49 early in the second quarter in a scoreless game. Alfred Blue got stopped and Green Bay turned the short field into a touchdown.Houston later passed up a 23-yard field goal and went on fourth-and-1 from the Packers 6 midway through the third quarter. Brock Osweiler tossed a TD pass to tie it 7-7.But coach Bill OBrien got conservative after that conversion.He chose to punt on fourth-and-5 at Green Bays 36 in a 7-7 game late in the third. He decided to punt again on fourth-and-7 from the Packers 44 with 8:59 left and trailing 14-7.Its just where we were on the field, said OBrien, offering no explanation for the inconsistent decisions.The Packers converted on fourth-and-2 from the Texans 42 when Cristine Michael ran for 5 yards on their first scoring drive. But they failed on fourth-and-2 at the Texans 48 later in the game.OBrien also had some interesting fourth-down calls against Oakland in the Monday night game in Mexico on Nov. 21.He went on fourth-and-inches from the Raiders 15 with the score tied and 6:15 left in the game. Akeem Hunt got stopped short on what appeared to be a poor spot by the officials.I felt like we needed a touchdown there, said OBrien, even though a field goal wouldve given Houston the lead.After Oakland went up 27-20, the Texans faced fourth-and-5 from their own 44 with only 3:13 to go and one time-out remaining. Yet, OBrien chose to punt. The Texans never got the ball back.If I had it back, Id go for it, OBrien said afterward.Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn passed up a short field goal down 27-16 in the third quarter against Kansas City last Sunday. He went on fourth-and-1 at the Chiefs 10. Atlanta didnt convert and eventually lost 29-28 because Eric Berry picked off a 2-point conversion and returned it the other way. Quinns decision to go for it earlier instead of kicking a 23-yard field goal also proved costly.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Whyno contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: and Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Cheap Air Jordan 3 Retro Rose . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011.

A high-octane clash at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday ended in a 0-0 draw as neither Bournemouth nor Tottenham Hotspur could take control of the match and make one of their few chances count.The result meant that Spurs (5-4-0) failed to move to the top of the Premier League table alone, with the Cherries much the happier side to emerge with a point.The hosts played a high press from the start, and the first half saw a flurry of yellow cards as late tackles flew in from both sides. There were a handful of openings.Bournemouth (3-3-3) threatened first with a close-range Charlie Daniels effort from a corner that crashed off the crossbar. After, Tottenhams Erik Lamela hit the post with an excelllent drive from 30 yards. Cheap Air Jordan 3 Retro Grey. Bournemouths Callum Wilson went close twice just before the break, first with a header from Jack Wilsheres cross and then stabbing wide after Jordon Ibe had teed him up.The second half took a long time to open up, but when it finally did in the last 20 minutes Spurs Danny Rose saw a first-time effort well saved by Artur Boruc. At the other end, substitute Benik Afobe headed a great chance over from Simon Francis curling cross.In the end, the result was a fair one, and another feather in Bournemouths increasingly impressive cap.Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
