Bengals Win against Eagles with 34-13

One Pennsylvania team down, one to go for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and Cincinnati beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 on Thursday night.

The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But their game at Pittsburgh next week is far more important in the standings than this one.

The Bengals would clinch their second straight playoff berth with a win over the Steelers if Pittsburgh loses to Dallas this Sunday. A loss to the Steelers, though, likely would ruin Cincinnati's chances.

The Eagles' season was lost a long time ago. They fell to 4-10, losing double-digit games for the first time since 2005, the year after losing the Super Bowl to New England.

There were plenty of empty seats at the Linc, where fans are hoping this is Andy Reid's final season as coach. Reid led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles and five NFC championship games in his first 13 years. But the Eagles will miss the playoffs for the second straight year and owner Jeffrey Lurie already said 8-8 would be ''unacceptable.''

An interception by Leon Hall set up Dalton's go-ahead 11-yard TD run in the third quarter. Then Wallace Gilberry picked up Bryce Brown's fumble and ran it back 25 yards for another score and an 11-point lead.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 106 yards, including a 1-yard TD run in the first quarter for Cincinnati. Dalton tossed a 5-yard TD pass to A.J. Green in the fourth to cap a 24-point outburst in a span of 3:23.

The Eagles committed three turnovers on three straight possessions at one point and then fumbled a kickoff when defensive lineman Cedric Thornton let the ball fall through his hands on a short kick.

After beating Tampa Bay on a last-second TD last week to snap an eight-game losing streak, the Eagles tried to make it two in a row. Turnovers got in their way again. They've committed an NFL-high 34 and forced just 12 all season.

The Eagles snapped a drought of 22 quarters without a turnover by recovering two fumbles in the second. Both led to field goals by Alex Henery, helping Philadelphia to a 13-10 halftime lead.

Rookie Nick Foles made his fifth straight start for Michael Vick, who just returned to practice this week after sustaining a concussion on Nov. 11. Foles threw for 182 yards, one TD and one interception.

Down 13-10, the Bengals started their rally with a turnover.

Hall intercepted Foles' deep pass and returned it 44 yards to the Eagles 40. Foles underthrew Jeremy Maclin, who was a few steps behind Hall.

Green made an acrobatic catch for an 11-yard gain on third-and-9 a few plays before Dalton ran for the score to put the Bengals up 17-13.

Foles, who threw for 381 yards to lead that comeback against the Bucs, hit Riley Cooper on an 11-yard TD pass to cut it to 10-7. Foles connected with Maclin on a 46-yard pass during the drive.

The Eagles then forced their first turnover since Nov. 5 against New Orleans. Brandon Graham sacked Dalton, the ball popped loose and Trent Cole recovered at the Bengals 29.

Just two plays in, Maclin fumbled after a 6-yard catch. Carlos Dunlap recovered and the Bengals started at the Eagles 44. Green-Ellis ran 29 yards on first down and scored a few plays later for a 7-0 lead.

It got uglier for Philadelphia on the next possession. Mat McBriar punted into his own blocker, Daniel Herron picked it up and ran 3 yards to the Eagles 11. But Graham sacked Dalton and Cincinnati settled for Brown's 24-yard field goal that made it 10-0.

The Eagles were again without running back LeSean McCoy and tight end Brent Celek also sat out. Both players also are recovering from concussions. McCoy missed his fourth straight game, but returned to practice this week with Vick.

Chicago Cubs Pitcher Jeff Samardzija May Have Picked the Right Sport After All

Star Notre Dame wide receiver Jeff Samardzija was expected to be a first-round choice in the 2007 NFL draft.  Samardzija, a two-sport star in college, had previously been drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the fifth round in June 2006, raising speculation that he might try to play two sports as a professional.

But Samardzija decided to stick to one sport – and to the surprise of many, went with baseball, signing a five-year, $10 million contract with the Cubs. Until now, however, it looked like he might have been better off choosing football.

Fast Times with NASCAR

Throughout human history racing has been a popular sport. The ancient Greeks ran in the first Olympics. The Romans were famous for their chariot racing. The English would race ships around the world on their trade routes and horse racing is still popular today. So it is only natural that as soon as automobiles were made people began racing them.

There are two major racing institutions in the world. The first is the F1 or Formula 1 that is run by the Federation International de Automobile. It is far more popular overseas then in the United States. The most popular racing organization in the states is the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, or NASCAR.

How Football Kicking Camp Can Help You

Improving your game, no matter the sport, is always important. There are no easy outs to improving your skills, and this is especially true as a kicker. The art of kicking a football is truly not for everyone. There are cynics out there that believe all you do is 'kick the ball', that it is entirely physical and that anyone with strength can do it.

The 'perfect kick', the kick we are strive for, takes a lot more than brute force, you need to understand how and where to hit the ball, the angle, velocity and the step method for kicking it. There are also many mental aspects that go into being a kicker, and a lot of stress. The truth is that one bad kick can doom a game and can even swing an entire season down a rocky path.

How Football Kicking Camp Can Improve Your Skills

Regardless of whether you are in junior high, high school or even preparing for college or pro football, improving your kick and working to achieve the 'perfect kick' each time is important.

A bad kick can, in a single moment, completely change the fate of the game, or even the entire season, making it crucial that you do your best on the field. What is involved in achieving great kicks every time?

The Aspects Involved in a Great Kick

There is a lot of pressure when it comes to delivering a kick. In this one moment you can make or break the entire game, or even have lasting impact on the entire season.

This knowledge can making being a kicker in American Football a very stressful occupation, whether you are in college, a pro, or even just on the junior high or highschool level.

Many people who don't truly know or understand the game think of football as nothing more than a physical sport that requires no real thought, concentration or understanding, these people are sadly misguided.

Benefits of a Kicking Camp

You love football, it is a passion that runs deep through your veins. Do you dream of being a professional kicker, or perhaps just getting on your local high school or even junior high team as a kicker? Whether you have natural talent or not, it can only get you half of the way.

There is no professional player out there that will tell you they rely completely on natural talent, even the most arrogant player will admit they practice, seek advice, and have a mentor or coach hassling them to do better along the way.

The Revitalisation of Horse Racing?

There are some things that possess the capabilities to revive that which is greater than itself, of that it is no question. However, rather more questionable is if whole sports can be revived? That would be a tall order; however a Triple Crown Win by chestnut colt I’ll Have Another could very much do the trick.

While in the sporting world all eyes will be fixed on football’s European Championships on Saturday, millions of others will have theirs transfixed on the I’ll Have Another’s pursuit of the Triple Crown at Belmont Stakes.

Football By Numbers

Everton have made the most appearances in the top flight of English football.

Between the old first division (1888 to 1992) and the Premiership ever since, the Toffees have taken part in 109 seasons.

The record for most consecutive seasons is held by Arsenal, with an unbroken 85 from 1919, excluding the league’s hiatus during the Second World War.

However, for the unpretentious the IPL is considered to be the most exciting form of cricket and is defiantly the flashiest in more than one way.

IPL Live 2012 Updates: Rayudu star in Mumbai Indians Victory over Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians Highlights: Complimentary this win, Mumbai leap to 6th identify in the factors desk, while kings XI Punjab stay second last. The guests began well in their pursuit but missing the story almost with some needless wickets. Rohit Sharma spread his category on this competition with a fantastic affect but missing his wicket at an essential point. 

It was done and dusted for them with 32 required off the last two over but Robin had different thoughts. He focused the Nineteenth over bowled by Piyush Chawla and along with Rayudu stroked 27 operates in it. What a fantastic competition! It went right down to the cable and Mumbai Indians organized on to their nerve fibers to grab success from the lips of beat. 

Robin modified the entire game via some highly effective reaching and Rayudu with his splendor completed it off in design and the whole Mumbai dug out is ecstatic!

The Mumbai Indians accomplished a amazing return win against the kings XI Punjab thanks mainly to Ambati Rayudu’s (34*) fresh reaching and Robin Peterson’s (16*) inventiveness with the bat.

Chasing 169, the Mumbai Indians started in a calm style. Openers Sachin Tendulkar (34) and James Franklin (22) can't quite get after the KXIP bowlers. The away part kept the scoreboard ticking but not at the necessary amount. While a 50-run alliance from the openers provided MI a firm groundwork, the property part had other thoughts. Azhar Mahmood created the tennis ball discuss right from the get-go and included both the openers after go-karting just seven paintballs. 

The guests required fast operates, but KXIP were go-karting with purpose. Dinesh Karthik’s (3) termination created elements more intense for MI. The wicketkeeper-batsman blessed a get to Mahmood off a Piyush Chawla shipping. The Mumbai Indians’ desires were now pinned on the big-hitting Kieron Pollard and the fickle Rohit Sharma. Pollard (3) can't do rights to his ability after he holed out at deeply midwicket off Parvinder Awana to decrease the away part to 90 for four.

Sharma (50) and Ambati Rayudu led the MI return, with the former getting to his half-century with a six off Awana. The KXIP pacer got his own returning the very next shipping as he ignored the MI right-hander. Awana was not completed yet, and Harbhajan Singh (0) became his second sufferer of the over after lobbing one to long-off. Just when it seemed like the kings would vacation their way to a win, Robin and Rayudu mixed to plunder 27 operates off the Nineteenth millennium over bowled by Piyush Chawla. With just five necessary off the last over, MI accomplished a amazing return to win the go with by four wickets and one ball save.

Stand-in skipper David Hussey won the toss and determined to bat first. Openers Nitin Saini (17) and Mandeep Singh (22) created the lacklustre MI go-karting strike pay beginning on. Singh checked particularly amazing with his constant fighting cerebral vascular strokes. But RP Singh got the 20-year-old right-hander to chip one immediately into Dinesh Karthik’s gloves. 

Saini was the next to leave as Clint McKay’s brief tennis ball was too much to deal with for the KXIP operator. At 46 for two, the property part required their go-to guy, Marsh, to flame. The Australian started his innings with a sharp edge. Unfortunately for KXIP, that was not an indication of elements to come as James Franklin ignored Marsh for 17.

David Hussey (68*) took on the layer to ranking big and he won. His managed anger became the perfect way to unsettle the MI go-karting strike. South African David Miller(34*) offered sufficient support to make sure the home side just didn't capitulate. The duo put on an amazing unbeaten 89-run alliance to make sure that KXIP published a fighting complete of 168 for three.

Man-of-the-match: Ambati Rayudu for his 17-ball 34-run that assisted the Mumbai Indians an extraordinary win.
