Atlanta Falcons Customized Basketball Jerseys quarterback Matt Ryan will be in familiar territory for Saturday’s divisional playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ryan grew up 32 miles outside Philadelphia in Exton, Pennsylvania, and attended Penn Charter High School. He was a big Donovan McNabb fan when McNabb was the quarterback of Customized Football Jerseys the Eagles. “It’s always good to go back and play there, for sure,” Ryan said. “Obviously the family and friends, it’s great to see them. But it doesn’t matter where we go this time of the year. We’re just excited to be going and just still have the opportunity to keep playing.” But Ryan certainly won’t receive Customized Hockey Jerseys a warm reception from the Eagles or their fans. Ryan is 1-3 all time against the Eagles in Philadelphia, completing 86 of 148 passes for 1,056 yards with eight touchdowns, four interceptions and a passer rating of 87. Last year’s game there was arguably his worst of the season. He completed just 18 of 33 passes for 267 yards, with a touchdown, an interception and a season-low passing rating of 78.7 in a 24-15 loss at Lincoln Financial Field. Ryan is 6-3 on the road this season following this past weekend’s 26-13 wild-card win against the Los Angeles Rams. And his playoff road record is now 1-2. For Customized Baseball Jerseys the Falcons to advance to the NFC Championship Game, Ryan will have to play at an MVP level against an Eagles defense that ranked in the top five in total defense (fourth), rushing defense (first), third-down percentage (third) and scoring (fourth). Ryan, who has put a renewed emphasis on footwork the past few years, has made plays with his feet the past two games and might have to do the same against the Eagles. “He’s a hell of a competitor, and those of you that know him know the nice guy you see through the media, but in between those white lines, he is a wolf,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. “I love what he stands for as a competitor, and his teammates know that, too. I thought there’s all sorts of examples, getting hit and bouncing back up, getting ready for the next one. He really showed that kind of toughness to his teammates.” Atlanta opened as a favorite on the road against the Eagles, who have Nick Foles at quarterback rather than injured starter Carson Wentz (ACL).
The four-game losing streak that threatened their season now seems so long ago for the Chiefs. They all but buried it Customized Baseball Jerseys in claiming their most important victory of the season Saturday night. They won a showdown with the Los Angeles Chargers 30-13 at Arrowhead Stadium to surge back into the lead in the AFC West. The Chiefs (8-6) can clinch their second consecutive division championship by winning Customized Basketball Jerseys either of their next two games, on Christmas Eve against the Miami Dolphins at Arrowhead or on New Year’s Eve against the Broncos in Denver. The Chiefs would hold the tiebreaker against either of the two AFC West teams — the Chargers and the Oakland Raiders — that could conceivably wind up in a tie for the division title. Saturday’s victory wasn’t one of Kansas City’s most artistic of the season. The Chiefs twice had to settle for field goals while inside the Los Angeles 20. Harrison Butker, their normally reliable kicker, missed a field goal attempt. They took a 10-0 lead in the second quarter, only to see the Chargers forge ahead in the second half. But the Chiefs rallied themselves, intercepting Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers three times and forcing a fumble in the second half. Marcus Peters, in his first game after a suspension, had two of the interceptions. Kareem Hunt rushed for 155 yards and a touchdown and also caught a pass for a score. Kareem Hunt had 206 yards from scrimmage and a pair of touchdowns against the Chargers. AP Photo/Ed Zurga Given the stakes, the Customized Football Jerseys victory was as solid as any the Chiefs have had. “You take any kind of win tonight, but certainly one like that for sure, just the way the team played,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. “That was a red-hot offense, hadn’t turned the ball over in a lot of weeks. They had been real productive. Our defense, to do what they did tonight, was impressive. I thought the way our [offensive] line [played] and the way Kareem ran … it was impressive and fun to watch back there.” The Chiefs wobbled severely this season, losing those four straight games and six of seven at Customized Hockey Jerseys one point to lower expectations on what once seemed to be a promising season. The Chiefs snapped out of it by beating the Raiders last Sunday. After defeating the Chargers, Kansas City has righted itself at the right time. “All of us realize how things can flip, either way,” Smith said. “We just want to keep the edge we’re playing with, keep that mentality. I think we’ve got a good thing going.” It’s not surprising the Chiefs found their comfort zone against AFC West opponents. The win was Kansas City’s eighth straight against the Chargers and its 15th in the past 16 games against divisional opponents. Playing against the Dolphins next week means stepping out of divisional play, but the Chiefs still have plenty on the line. “The stakes will be ever higher,” Smith said. “You win the game, you win the division. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
Mike Trout has customized jerseys been knocked for his arm in the past, but the Angels superstar delivered an incredible 250-foot throw to nail Robinson custom jerseys Chirinos at the plate and prevent the go-ahead run from scoring in the ninth inning of the Halos’ game against the Rangers on Wednesday at Angel Stadium.

Trout fired a no-hop throw to catcher Martin Maldonado, who tagged Chirinos for the final out of the inning. “That throw was incredible,” left fielder Cameron Maybin said. The Rangers challenged the call, but replay showed Customized Basketball Jerseys Chirinos’ foot appeared to be elevated as it crossed the plate, leading the umpires to uphold the ruling. The Angels ultimately fell, 7-5, after the Rangers rallied for three runs in the Custom Team Jerseys 10th, but Trout’s impressive play still drew plenty of praise from his teammates. “Did you ever make a better throw than that one?” shortstop Andrelton Simmons asked Trout afterward. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better throw.” Trout just laughed. “It’s one of them, for sure,” he said. “Obviously, it was a big play in the game. I saw him going around the bases, and I knew I had a shot. Just put it right on the money.”
