That Patriots-Steelers matchup Sunday sure looked like a Game of the Year candidate. Then all of the air went out of it when Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger damaged his knee.Dont get us wrong, it still could be a terrific meeting of the AFCs two best teams. It also could be a major dud: Tom Brady vs. Landry Jones doesnt have much spice.The Steelers can talk bravely as much as they want, and they should. As linebacker Arthur Moats says, Responding to adversity, thats what we do. Yeah, we know Ben isnt playing, but we have confidence in Landry. You know hes going to go out there and let it fly.But the reality in the NFL is that often its when you play a team that matters as much as who the opponent is. Facing the Steelers in Heinz Field is daunting for most anyone when Big Ben is on the field. Patriots luck prevails this week.The obvious cases of when over who tend to come in the heat of September -- anyone really eager to play outdoors in Florida or Nashville then? -- or in the bitter cold of winter. Tundra is a dirty word to folks outside of Green Bay, Buffalo and New England.For years, reporters covering the Jets immediately looked for two games when the schedule came out: when the team was in Miami (hopefully late in the year) and when it was in Buffalo (September, please).Then theres the chore of facing a well-rested team coming off a bye. Rarely are both opponents in a specific game in that situation: It happens only once in 2016, when Pittsburgh is at Baltimore on Nov. 6.Indeed, the Eagles play three opponents who had a bye the previous week, including the Vikings on Sunday . The Panthers, Giants, 49ers, Cardinals, Jaguars, Bengals and Texans each play two opponents who were idle the week before.Fair? Perhaps even less fair is that nine clubs never take on a team coming off a bye: Dallas, Washington, Green Bay, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Miami, Buffalo, Indianapolis and San Diego.At least the Rams get a break there. Few teams have had more potential to be plagued by the when than the Rams.Aside from their nomadic existence as they moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles, then had three different Southern California locales to work out of, they had a road game in Detroit in Week 6. Immediately after the loss to the Lions, they headed to London for their annual (until they get their new palace in Inglewood, California) hosting venture.Meanwhile, the Giants were winning last Sunday at home against Baltimore.Plus, the Giants-Rams mid-afternoon kickoff in London translates to 6:30 a.m. on the West Coast.Let me go back. Clearly, coming off a difficult loss in Detroit, and then leaving almost immediately after the game for here was a challenge for us, Rams coach Jeff Fisher says. But, they knew well ahead of time, and they accepted it. We got here, they settled down. We tried to keep them awake, but we werent as successful as we thought, but they got rested up.Yeah, it was different in that we came over on Monday following a home game (last season) ... in the National Football League, its an inherent challenge to go from the West Coast, and then play a 1 p.m. (ET) game, which is in essence a 10 a.m. game on the West Coast. That in itself was a challenge for us that we dealt with last week.Often not apparent when deciphering the schedule are advantages that crop up. Facing a team in turmoil should provide an edge, something the Jets got in Week 2 at Buffalo, when they won for the only time so far. Or what the Bills experienced last Sunday when the Niners circus came to town with Colin Kaepernick making his first start. Rex Ryans club, which has turned around its fortunes since that Jets loss, romped past San Francisco.There are always contrasts, though.Star running back Adrian Peterson might be back with the Vikings for the final six or so games, so opponents would want to get Minnesota while he is rehabbing his knee injury. Problem is, the Vikings are 5-0 anyway.And Dallas is 5-1 without Tony Romo, so taking on Dak Prescott has been anything but an edge for the opposition.Still, timing is a tremendous factor in the outcome of NFL games. If you are banged up and your bye isnt until Week 10 or 11, your playoff chances might be gone by then.And if you come out of the gates like a hot rod and then have an early bye, well, thats not so good, either. Remember, Philly won its first three games and looked very strong. Then the schedule told the Eagles to take a week off.They are 0-2 since.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Fake Vans 2020 .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury.

Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. https://www.vansfake.com/ .

Colton McCarthy scored twice, Brayden Point had a goal and two assists, and Jack Rodewald also scored for the Warriors (15-35-9), who were 2 for 5 on the power play. DAYTON, Ohio -- Calvin Hermanson opened the game with a layup. Jock Landale was fouled and made both free throws, and then had a dunk. St. Marys was off and running toward an impressive road win.Hermanson scored 16 points -- most of them from the perimeter -- and Landale scored most of his 15 off moves to the basket on Saturday. The outside-inside attack swept No. 17 St. Marys to a 61-57 victory over Dayton in the Gaels first road game.The Gaels (3-0) led the whole way, pulling ahead by 20 points midway through the second half and holding off a late Dayton rally. Until the closing minutes, they felt very relaxed.Coming out to the big start not only got the crowd out of it, but gave us confidence for the rest of the game, said Hermanson, who fouled out with 2:52 left. We started running our stuff and getting great shots and realizing we could almost get what we wanted. We were able to settle in once we had some success.Those last 3 minutes left them sweating one out.The Flyers (2-1) took advantage of the Gaels sloppiness -- 100 turnovers in the second half -- and went on a 14-1 run. Charles Cookes jumper cut it to 59-57 with 25 seconds left. Emmett Naar hit two free throws with 7.2 seconds left to clinch it.We knew the storm was coming, coach Randy Bennett said. We weathered most of it.Cooke scored 19 for the Flyers , who are 1-2 against Top 25 teams over the last two seasons.I told them Im not most disappointed with the loss, but with how we lost, coach Archie Miller said. The last 8 minutes is how we should have played the whole 40 minutes.Landale -- a 6-foot-11 center -- had his way inside early, working the pick-and-roll for layups. Landale and Hermanson scored all of St. Marys points as the Gaels pulled ahead 19-11. The Gaels led by as many as 14 in the half.ddddddddddddI dont know that anybody has answers against them, Miller said. Theyre able to do what they do against anybody. We wont be the only team that struggles against them.ENCOREThe Gaels were coming off a 110-72 win over Prairie View A&M, their first 100-point game since 2012.TD UPLandale got a technical foul for grabbing the rim while trying for a put-back dunk in the second half.ON THE BOARDSLandale had 14 rebounds, helping St. Marys get a 38-31 edge in rebounds.POLL IMPLICATIONSSt. Marys: The Gaels were ranked in the preseason poll for the first time in their history and put themselves in position to move up with an impressive road win. The Flyers have won 36 of their last 40 home games.Heck of a win, Bennett said. We know what Dayton is. We had to play well, and we did until the last 3 minutes.
