EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Los Angeles Rams offense is still struggling, and Jeff Fisher is still sticking with Case Keenum as his starting quarterback for now.So, for all those calling for Jared Goff to finally get his chance, keep calm and remain patient.No, Im not going to go into a quarterback situation, Fisher said after the Rams 9-6 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday. I dont believe its quarterback play. I think its collectively were making mistakes.Fisher insisted that hes not putting the struggles of the offense -- the Rams have 29 total points in their past three games -- on Keenums shoulders. He was then asked if changing quarterbacks might get the offense going.Well, its always a possibility when his time comes, Fisher said of Goff, this years No. 1 overall draft pick.But I think Case did a nice job. We didnt get the ball in the end zone, but he scrambled and picked up some key first downs and kept drives alive, and thats what youve got to do against a defense like that.Keenum went a ho-hum 17 of 30 for 165 yards, but had no turnovers after throwing eight interceptions in his previous four games. The talk this week as Los Angeles prepares to host Miami will inevitably be whether Goffs time will come sooner rather than later.I keep saying and Im going to keep saying this until he starts his first game, that hes improving, Fisher said. Hes a play away from going into the game and hes improving.The Jets quarterback situation remains uncertain after Bryce Petty made his first NFL start in place of an injured Ryan Fitzpatrick, but couldnt get much going against the Rams defense.Petty, a fourth-round draft pick out of Baylor last year, went 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown, but was intercepted by Alec Ogletree with just under two minutes remaining to seal the Jets loss.Im not going to let this define my career, Petty said. Im not going to let this define me.Fitzpatrick was listed as questionable with a sprained left knee, suffered last weekend at Miami.After the game, coach Todd Bowles said Fitzpatrick wasnt completely healthy, although he was active for the game and served as Pettys backup, while rookie Christian Hackenberg was inactive.Bowles would not commit to who his starter would be in the Jets next game against New England in two weeks.Well evaluate that next week, Bowles said. Weve got the bye week to evaluate that and well see how Fitz feels. Well watch the film on Bryce and well make the determination next week.Here are other things to know from the Rams squeaker of a victory over the Jets:DEFENSE RAM TOUGHLos Angeles defense is holding up its end of the bargain, allowing only 26 points over the past three games.After New York got the ball with 2:55 remaining and down by three, Petty tried to lead the Jets down the field. But on second-and-7 from the 42, Pettys pass to Quincy Enunwa was picked off by Ogletree, who took it out of the receivers hands and Enunwa then tried to wrestle it away from the linebacker to no avail.I had that area of zone and I was playing the receiver, Ogletree said. I saw him throw the ball. We kind of tied up and I was able to rip it out from him and make the play.MISSED OPPORTUNITYPetty misfired on a long pass on third-and-14 from the Rams 32 that couldve been an easy touchdown in the closing minute of the first half, slightly overthrowing Robby Anderson, who was wide open but had to reach high as the ball tipped off his hand. It could have been a huge momentum changer heading into halftime.Ive got to hit that, Petty said. Ive got to make that as easy as possible. I wish I had that one back.SPECIAL SPECIAL TEAMERSWith the Rams offense struggling, their kickers continue to keep them in games.Greg Zuerlein provided all the offense against New York with three field goals. Meanwhile, Johnny Hekker averaged 51.7 yards on seven punts, including a booming 78-yarder -- fourth-longest in franchise history -- that flipped the field and helped lead to the winning score.Its like golf, Hekker said. You strike the ball and it goes. It felt pretty good.GURLEY STILL GROUNDEDTodd Gurley, last seasons Offensive Rookie of Year, still has yet to run for 100 yards in a game this season after rushing for 125 or more five times last season. He finished with 64 yards on 21 carries.Gurleys longest run of the season, 21 yards in the fourth quarter, was wiped out by Greg Robinsons holding penalty. But he rebounded with a decent performance after having just 10 yards on 10 carries at halftime.When we needed him, he came through, Keenum said. Thats what great players do in this league.TOUGH LOSSThe Jets 9-6 defeat was their first to a team that didnt score a TD since falling 9-0 to Green Bay in 2010 -- and only the ninth time it has happened in franchise history.---AP freelance writer Mike Farrell contributed.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Kevin Love Jersey .

PHILADELPHIA -- The rest of the 2016 season will be spent evaluating what the future may hold for the Philadelphia Phillies.And that makes sense for a team in the waning moments of another losing season.On Monday night, with a 6-2 decision over the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Phillies surpassed their win total from 2015 by earning their 64th victory of the season.I never thought Id be happy to get a 64th win, Philadelphia manager Pete Mackanin said, but it makes me happy at this point.What also made him happy Monday night was the play of rookie outfielder Roman Quinn, who went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a stolen base -- all firsts for his two-game-old career. Quinn and catcher Jorge Alfaro, both called up Sunday from Double-A Reading, will get a chance to showcase themselves for the future. Both 23-year-olds are among the teams top prospects.Alfaro, who pinch-hit and had an infield single in his debut Monday, likely will get his first start behind the plate Tuesday night when the the Pirates and Phillies continue their four-game series.Theyre not going to be able to establish themselves, but theyre going to really make a good first impression and thats the best they can do, Mackanin said of Alfaro and Quinn.Should Alfaro get the start Tuesday, he would be catching right-hander Alec Asher (1-0, 0.00 ERA), who pitched well in his first major league start of the year Thursday in Washington.Asher, back after serving an 80-game suspension for the use of performance-enhancing drugs, tossed six scoreless innings against the Nattionals, yielding just two hits and one walk.ddddddddddddWhile Asher is looking to make his case to be in the teams long-term plans, his Tuesday mound opponent has already succeeded on that count.Right-hander Ivan Nova (12-6, 4.13 ERA) has been extremely effective since joining the Pirates last month, even though the team has been plummeting.In seven starts, since he was acquired from the New York Yankees, Nova is 5-0 with a 2.53 ERA and 0.93 walks-and-hits-per-inning-pitched ratio. His last time out, he threw a complete-game six-hitter in a 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.Nova has made one career start against Philadelphia, when he pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings in a win for the Yankees last year.The loss Monday knocked Pittsburgh (69-73) six games back of the final wild-card spot in the National League. The Pirates had a 67-61 record and were a half-games back of the final wild-card spot through Aug. 28, but a 2-12 stretch has all but eliminated them from contention.If we can flip a switch and fix it, we certainly would, general manager Neal Huntington said recently, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. But every time we seem like were falling in the wrong direction, we seem to right ourselves. Every time we right ourselves, we seem to take a misstep. Weve been the streakiest team in baseball this year, and our goal is to spend some time figuring out how we become more consistent. ' ' '
