livan said of the change. Its a different part of the gam

Fourth-and-no is becoming fourth-and-go in the NFL. Karl Malone Team USA Jersey .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: Deron Williams Team USA Jersey . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. Scottie Pippen Team USA Jersey . Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have placed centre Cody Hodgson on injured reserve and recalled two players from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. Andi Sullivan made such good use of the rest of the month, it seems only fair that the final full week of October belonged to the Stanford All-American midfielder, too.A week after she looked comfortable at the sports highest level, twice excelling in what were her debut performances with the United States womens national team, Sullivan looked a little too good for college soccer. Or at least that portion of the college game that resides in Arizona.Sullivan scored a total of four goals in Stanfords wins at Arizona and Arizona State this past week, more than enough to merit a place as the espnW soccer player of the week.Far from exhibiting any fatigue after returning to Stanford following national team games in Utah and Minnesota, arriving back just in time to turn around and travel on the road trip, Sullivan put the Cardinal ahead to stay with the opening goal in a 4-0 win at Arizona. It was a strike that would have fit right in at the international level, Sullivan settling a pass with her first touch and then ripping a left-footed shot from just outside the box past the diving keeper. She later converted a penalty kick to expand the margin to a comfortable three goals.She was back at the penalty spot early in the second half of a 2-1 win at Arizona State and broke a scoreless tie when she converted. Then, about two minutes after Arizona State came within inches of a goal on a corner kick and three minutes before an own goal by the Cardinal, Sullivan deftly steered a Kyra Carusso pass into the lower corner for her second goal. Michael Jordan USA Jersey. Her four goals on the week were just two shy of her total in her first two college seasons.Sullivan impressed with the national team as a holding midfielder, the same role she played her first two seasons at Stanford. U.S. coach Jill Ellis also talked about trying Sullivan as the kind of ball-playing center back that she feels the modern game demands. But her task at Stanford this season has been to play higher up the field and produce points more directly.Despite missing two games, she ranks third in the Pac-12 with 10 goals (shes also tied for third in the conference with six assists). The Cardinal, in turn, are just one goal away from matching their total for the entirety of the 2015 season and control their own conference championship chances as the regular season concludes this weekend.I think its a little bit more freedom to be in the attacking role and a little more creativity, which is fun, Sullivan said of the change. Its a different part of the game. Its a challenge to me, from the last two years, when Ive been in a very organizational role, a very defensive, distributing role. Now its Can you add to that?Theyre different disciplines. They require a lot of the same skills, but they are different roles.No matter the role and no matter the team, Sullivan had an October to remember.
