Matchups for the AFC championship game Sunday between the Jacksonville Jaguars and New England Patriots: — When the Jaguars (12-6) have the ball: That impressive performance in Pittsburgh very likely will be needed for the Jaguars to have a chance. That means QB Blake Bortles (5) must get time from his blockers Philadelphia Eagles News , led by C Brandon Linder (65) and rookie LT Cam Robinson (74), who is big and nasty and plays with an edge, against a spotty pass rush. New England doesn’t have any studs in the front seven, but everyone is effective. Last week, Geneo Grissom (92) and Deatrich Wise (91) each had two sacks. Who? Exactly the Patriots’ way. Jacksonville will look to run with stud rookie Leonard Fournette (27) and valuable backup T.J. Yeldon (24). The Patriots held Tennessee, a decent run team, to 65 yards. The Jags, though, led the league in rushing yardage Don Mattingly Jersey , and Bortles is a threat to run. Jaguars receivers Marqise Lee (11) and Allen Hurns (88) can be a dangerous pair – Lee is vastly improved – and with the Patriots likely to try to take Fournette out of the game, how those two manage against an inconsistent secondary will be a key. In the playoffs, however, New England’s DBs, particularly S Devin McCourty (32) and CB Malcolm Butler (21) tend to step up big time. The Jags hurt the Steelers with big plays, and the Patriots have been vulnerable to those at times. Jacksonville will require a bunch of them to stay close. — When the Patriots (14-3) have the ball Start with Tom Brady (12). We could almost end there, too. At 40, the four-time Super Bowl MVP plays as if he’s 30. He might have slowed down in December, but does anyone think the All-Pro quarterback won’t be on-target to fellow All-Pro TE Rob Gronkowski (87) or WRs Brandon Cooks (14) Cheap Chukwuma Okorafor Jersey , Danny Amendola (80), Chris Hogan (15) and RBs James White (28) and Dion Lewis (33)? The caveat comes from Jacksonville’s pass rush. Sacksonville had 55 in 2017, then four more in the playoffs. The biggest threat, All-Pro DL Calais Campbell (93) had 14+ during the regular season and has none in January. He must be itching to get a QB down on the ground. Fellow pass rushers Yannick Ngakoue (91), a strip-sack artist, Dante Fowler Jr. (56), Marcell Dareus (99) and Malik Jackson (97) could add to Brady’s discomfort; Brady’s biggest dislike is not being able to set himself to throw. Trying to keep that pass rush honest will be the most underrated O-line in the game, paced by LT Nate Solder (77) and C David Andrews (60). White has been super reliable in past postseasons, but Lewis has become the primary running back. Jacksonville’s cocky secondary features All-Pro CB Jalen Ramsey (20) and solid A.J. Bouye (21) Authentic Taven Bryan Jersey , and two castoff safeties who have been solid, Barry Church (42) and Tashaun Gipson (39). They will unquestionably be challenged by Brady’s receiving group. — Special Teams After struggling by his standards in 2016, Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski (3) is back to being close to automatic: 37 out of 40 in 2017, 4 for 4 on kicks of 50 or more yards. Gostkowski’s 165 postseason points trail only Adam Vinatieri (234) and David Akers (175). Lewis is the only player on the four remaining teams in the playoffs to have returned a kickoff for a touchdown this season. He ranked fourth in the NFL with a 24.8 yards per return. Amendola is also a threat on punt returns. He averaged 8.6 yards per return during the regular season, including a long of 40 yards. Jacksonville’s penchant for trick plays on special teams is something to watch. The Jaguars turned three fake punts into touchdowns during the regular season. Josh Lambo, signed in mid-October to replace errant Jason Myers, is a former Major League Soccer goalkeeper who has made 21 of 22 field goals, including both in the postseason, and 29 of 31 extra points. Brad Nortman ranked 31st in the league in net average (44.1) and had two punts blocked Youth Dante Pettis Jersey , including one last week at Pittsburgh. Returners Corey Grant and Jaydon Mickens have the speed and agility to break long returns. — Coaching Give Doug Marrone tons of credit for changing the culture in Jacksonville. No more Lax Jax. This is a tough, relentless bunch on defense, and one that while up and down has become more threatening with the ball. Marrone has the Jags believing, and when was the last time folks in North Florida could say that? Defensive coordinator Todd Wash should be getting looks for a top job. Yes, the roster was vastly improved on D over the past two years and Wash has molded it well. OC Nathaniel Hackett isn’t nearly as accomplished, but he outcoached his Steelers counterparts last week. What else needs to be said about the Patriots’ leadership, which gets them this far all the time? Suffice to point out that OC Josh McDaniels and DC Matt Patricia both have been front-runners for head coaching jobs this offseason. — Intangibles The Jaguars are one of four teams never to make a Super Bowl. Their win in Pittsburgh has them stoked, and their youthful exuberance that some might describe as over the top actually has served them well so far. Then again, riling up Brady’s bunch rarely is a good strategy. Somehow Buccaneers Cheap Jerseys , the Patriots have convinced themselves they are either disrespected, distrusted or dismissed outside of New England. Not a bad motivational tool, even if it seems to ring hollow for a five-time champion. — AP Sports Writers Mark Long and Kyle Hightower contributed. — .

HOUSTON — On Sunday Philadelphia Eagles News , it was shortstop Carlos Correa who played a pivotal role in keeping Houston’s winning streak alive, belting a game-tying home run in the eighth inning as the Astros subsequently rolled to an 11th consecutive victory by rallying past the Kansas City Royals. Houston (48-25) relied on a number of contributors to complete a 10-0 road trip through Texas, Oakland and Kansas City, with Correa following Evan Gattis, Max Stassi Authentic J'Mon Moore Jersey , Brian McCann and an assortment of others in striking the decisive blow to keep the line moving. The Astros have benefited from a resurgent offense and exceptional work from their bullpen to set a pace as the hottest team in the majors, with their stellar road trip underscoring their might. “This was incredible just by the way we played and the way we completed games,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “Obviously, winning every game is incredible. We did it in a lot of different ways and so we want to keep the same intent and the same mentality that we’ve been playing with. It’s been pretty remarkable. “It’s hard to put into words. It’s been somebody different every night. We’ve had good pitching; we’ve had good defense. We’ve rallied late, we’ve blown guys out early Taijuan Walker Jersey , so we’re in a good place right now and we’ve got to continue to do that going home. “It was a long trip. We played in some hot weather. It’s a pretty resilient group to keep playing well and coming up with enough runs to win.” Now the Astros return to Minute Maid Park to start a nine-game homestand on Monday against the Tampa Bay Rays. After improving to 29-11 on the road, the Astros are aiming to elevate their play at home, where they’ve been only slightly better than pedestrian (19-14). “Hopefully, we can go home and keep grinding and keep playing the way we’ve been playing,” Correa said. Right-hander Gerrit Cole (8-1 Whit Merrifield Jersey , 2.40 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Astros. Cole will face the Rays for the first time in his career. He allowed a season-high four runs in his previous start, working six innings and getting six strikeouts in a 13-5 win at Oakland on June 13. Cole is 4-0 with a 3.89 ERA in his previous six starts, surrendering eight home runs during that stretch. Right-hander Ryan Stanek (1-1, 2.55) will start the series opener for the Rays. It will mark the sixth start and 16th appearance of the season for Stanek, who has yet to face the Astros. After working out of the bullpen three times in his first four appearances this month Christian Villanueva Jersey , Stanek logged consecutive abbreviated starts against the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees on June 12 and 16, respectively. Stanek’s outing against the Astros will mark the third consecutive bullpen day for the Rays (33-38), who claimed the finale of a four-game set in New York on Sunday behind 4 2/3 innings from right-hander Wilmer Font and four additional relievers. The Rays welcomed back shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria from the 10-day disabled list, with Hechavarria finishing 3-for-4 with a run scored against the Yankees. Hechavarria, who missed nearly a month with a right hamstring strain Jim Rice Jersey , is expected to play behind rookie Willy Adames and could be showcased as a trade chip in advance of the nonwaiver trade deadline. .

The Philadelphia 76ers are investigating whether team president Bryan Colangelo used a variety of Twitter accounts to anonymously trash some of his own players and fellow executives and defend himself against criticism from fans and the sports media. The allegations Philadelphia Eagles News , reported Tuesday by the sports website The Ringer , raised questions about Colangelo’s future and that of the NBA team itself, a rising franchise heading into perhaps its most important summer ever as it tries to attract free agents to contend for championships. The five Twitter accounts under suspicion took aim at Philadelphia players Joel Embiid and Markelle Fultz, former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, Toronto Raptors executive Masai Ujiri and former Sixers players Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel, according to The Ringer. Among other things Authentic Mason Cole Jersey , the user or users of the accounts complained that Embiid, the 24-year-old All-Star center, was ”playing like a toddler having tantrums” and was ”a bit lazy,” ”selfish” and ”acting like a tool.” The user of one of the accounts claimed to know Colangelo and described him more than once as a ”class act.” The tweets also raised the question of whether Colangelo used the anonymous accounts to divulge team strategy and details about players’ medical conditions. Colangelo acknowledged using one of the accounts to monitor the NBA industry and other current events but said he wasn’t familiar with the four others. ”The allegations are serious and we have commenced an independent investigation into the matter,” the Sixers said Wednesday in a statement. ”We will report the results of that investigation as soon as it is concluded.” Embiid, Philly’s franchise star J. D. Martinez Jersey , made a few wisecracks about the furor for his 1.4 million Twitter followers before standing up for Colangelo. ”All jokes asides I don’t believe the story,” he tweeted. ”That would be just insane.” The Ringer said it had been monitoring the accounts since February, when it received an anonymous tip. It said it found numerous connections among the accounts that suggested the same person was behind them. The Ringer said it initially asked the Sixers about just two of the accounts, and the same day the three others were suddenly made private. For the Sixers, the first order of business is determining whether the accounts are, in fact Youth Rick Leonard Jersey , Colangelo’s. The Sixers had at least 20 impostor accounts shut down this season with people pretending to be Colangelo, a person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the probe is not over. If the investigation shows that Colangelo is in any way connected to the accounts, the organization’s reputation would be heavily damaged as it tries to chase big free agents like LeBron James, Paul George or other All-Stars. Colangelo, the son of longtime sports executive Jerry Colangelo, was hired as president of basketball operations in 2016 after Hinkie abruptly resigned. Hinkie was the architect behind what the team calls The Process – the long-term tearing down and rebuilding of the Sixers. Colangelo previously served as Raptors general manager. He lost his job there after Toronto missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season Cheap Taron Johnson Jersey , and Ujiri took over basketball operations. According to The Ringer, one of the Twitter accounts it connected to Colangelo bristled at the suggestion that Hinkie deserved credit for the Sixers’ turnaround. ”BC has done nothing but clean up hinkie’s mess,” the account user wrote in January 2017, referring to Colangelo. Another post lamented that Ujiri hadn’t done anything to make the Raptors better. Colangelo has been blamed by Philly fans for the so-far disastrous deal that brought Fultz to the Sixers. One of the accounts that The Ringer linked to Colangelo blamed Fultz’s poor performance on his longtime trainer and his ”so called mentor/father figure.” Colangelo was likewise criticized when Noel was sent to the Dallas Mavericks in 2017. The Twitter accounts defended the trade, describing Noel as a ”selfish punk” who was ”behaving like a vulture” and was ”bad for locker room.” ”Bc is class act not a bad guy,” the Twitter user added. — .

With the playoffs just days away Philadelphia Eagles News , Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue typically would have his lineup rotations set by now. Nothing has been typical about this season for the Cavs. Lue said Thursday that he plans to use a 10-player rotation for Cleveland’s opening-round series against the Indiana Pacers, but that things could change depending on injuries, matchups and performances. ”I will play 10,” Lue said after the Cavaliers watched film on the Pacers, who went 3-1 against Cleveland this season. ”We’ll just see how it looks and if one guy is not great this round, then it might be nine.” Lue and his staff have been juggling lineups and using different combinations on the floor for months, forced to adjust and re-adjust Authentic Donte Jackson Jersey , first because of injuries and then by a slew of trades that transformed the team. Lue refused to name his full starting lineup for Sunday’s Game 1. He revealed previously that four of them will be LeBron James, Kevin Love, Jeff Green and George Hill. The other spot could go to veteran shooter Kyle Korver, who has been slowed by a foot injury and whose status remains uncertain. ”He’s getting better,” Lue said of Korver, who also missed time recently following his brother’s death. ”I’m not sure if he’s 100 percent yet, but he’s getting better and that’s all you can ask for.” If Korver isn’t ready Justin Verlander Jersey , Rodney Hood, one of four players acquired at the trade deadline, will likely start. He’s been slowed by a sore left Achilles, but Lue said Hood’s ”ready to go.” As for Cleveland’s reserves, Jordan Clarkson, J.R. Smith and Jose Calderon are in the rotational mix, with forwards Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance Jr. being used depending on whom Indiana has on the floor. One of the holdovers from Cleveland’s past three Finals teams Authentic Joel Iyiegbuniwe Jersey , Thompson played extended minutes in the second half of Wednesday’s loss to New York while Nance rested, a sign that Lue might be leaning toward him playing more. Thompson was excused from Thursday’s practice because of the birth of his daughter. Lue trusts all his players. He’s had no choice following a turbulent regular season in which he didn’t always know who would be available until moments before tipoff. But Lue has depth and intends to use it. Hall of Fame coach Pat Riley’s philosophy in the playoffs was: ”You rotate eight players. You play seven. You use six and you trust five.” Not Lue. Not this year. ”You usually go nine,” he said. ”I think we’ve been nine in the past, but I think it’s going to be important to go 10 for us because I like Clarkson being on the floor with a point guard, so that makes us play 10.” Hill, who has plenty of playoff experience with San Antonio, Indiana and Utah Authentic Marquis Haynes Jersey , said Cleveland’s versatility may give the Cavs an advantage. ”I’ve been on a team that played a 10-man rotation in the playoffs, but I haven’t been on a team this deep, so I think we’ll have a lot of great guys that we can throw out there on the court with big lineups, small lineups,” he said. ”I think we can play any type of style.” For Hill, the matchup against the Pacers represents a homecoming, as he played for IUPUI and spent five years with the Pacers. It’s also a chance to win a championship with James Giancarlo Stanton Jersey , a former playoff nemesis. Hill played on those Pacers teams that were eliminated in three straight postseasons by James and the Miami Heat. That can’t happen this time. ”The good thing is we got the best player in the world playing for us,” Hill said. ”So I’m very excited about that. I don’t got to get put out by him this year, which I did a lot in my career. So, I’m happy to be on the other side.” — .
