#1 nd Binghamtons Darren Kramer set the tone von lebaobei123 28.03.2019 02:35

Another 16 games on the schedule in Week Two, with Steven Jackson facing the Rams, an epic San Francisco-Seattle matchup and the latest installment of the Manning Bowl. Here are the Week Two NFL previews: N.Y. JETS (+12) at NEW ENGLAND The good news for the Jets is that rookie QB Geno Smith was better than expected in their Week One win but its not easy to mount a passing attack with WR Jeremy Kerley out and veteran WR Santonio Holmes still getting healthy. TE Kellen Winslow, who played one game for the Patriots last season, could be Smiths prime target after his strong showing (7 REC, 79 YDS, 1 TD) in Week One. Its not as though Tom Brady has a full complement on offence either. Already short-staffed with offseason losses and TE Rob Gronkowski still sidelined, they added RB Shane Vereen to the IR and WR Danny Amendola is doubtful, leaving a lot of pressure on wide receivers Julian Edelman and Kenbrell Thompkins. Jets CB Antonio Cromartie had trouble with Bucs WR Vincent Jackson last week but neither Edelman nor Thompkins presents the same physical mismatch. The lack of proven offensive options for the Patriots could at least bode well for RB Stevan Ridley, who was benched after fumbling against Buffalo. If the Patriots passing game isnt up to the challenge, then Ridley and LeGarrette Blount could play a big role in the running game. Its a big spread considering the depleted Patriots offence, but the Jets may not have the personnel to take them down. ST. LOUIS (+7) at ATLANTA Falcons RB Steven Jackson faces his old team after an efficient first week (however with no touchdowns) against the Saints. The Falcons are already going with a hobbling Roddy White at wide receiver (he was targeted just twice, making two catches, against New Orleans) and Julio Jones missed practice with a knee injury. Both should play against St. Louis, but the Rams have some capable cover corners, Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins, so if the Falcons wide receivers are hurting, it could be a day for the Falcons to use Jackson and TE Tony Gonzalez more frequently. If the Rams are going to keep up with Falcons, they need TE Jared Cook to continue what he showed in Week One and with a couple of rookies, Desmond Trufant and Robert McClain, getting regular work in the Falcons secondary, maybe the Rams can take advantage with deep threat WR Chris Givens. RB Daryl Richardson, who effectively replaces Jackson as the Rams starter, had 96 yards from scrimmage in Week One; this should be a good test against a quality opponent. CLEVELAND (+7) at BALTIMORE Baltimores secondary was the epitome of vulnerable in the second half against Peyton Manning and the Broncos in the season opener, the Browns may elect to run RB Trent Richardson more than they tried against Miami in Week One. Browns TE Jordan Cameron had a big game against the Dolphins and, considering the success of Julius Thomas against the Ravens, Cameron should be Weedens prime target. Cameron, like Thomas, also happens to be a former college basketball player. Rookie WR Marlon Brown steps into the starting lineup for injured Jacoby Jones and gives the Ravens enough in the passing game. QB Joe Flacco could try more to the outside this week after making TE Dallas Clark the primary target against Denver. CAROLINA (-2.5) at BUFFALO After a pedestrian effort against the Seahawks in Week One, QB Cam Newton needs to be better against the Bills. Working in his favour is that the Bills secondary is missing two corners (Stephon Gilmore and Ron Brooks) as well as FS Jairus Byrd. Patriots RB Shane Vereen had such a productive game last week vs. Bills, gaining 159 yards from scrimmage, that the Panthers will likely give RB DeAngelo Williams an opportunity to grind out some yards on the ground this week. If the Panthers dont open up their offence (they didnt last week), then the Bills can continue to play it safe with QB E.J. Manuel, throwing short routes and focusing on the running game, which could be enough to hang with the Panthers. The challenge facing the Bills is that Carolina handled Seattles running game last week so if the Bills cant get big production out of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, Manuel may have to attempt more downfield passing to wide receivers Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods. MINNESOTA (+6.5) at CHICAGO After he struggled in Week One, Vikings QB Christian Ponder has to be better. WR Jerome Simpson had a big game (7 REC, 140 YDS) last week. Will he be able to do it again if Greg Jennings cant get loose on the other side? Under new head coach Marc Trestman, the Bears offence wasnt all that different -- QB Jay Cutler still passed a lot to WR Brandon Marshall -- but they did use TE Martellus Bennett. Against the Vikings secondary, WR Alshon Jeffery should have value and, considering Reggie Bushs monster performance against Minnesota, Matt Forte will have appeal as both runner and receiver. WASHINGTON (+7.5) at GREEN BAY Redskins QB Robert Griffin III struggled for three quarters against Philadelphia, and it would have been easy to write him off as not ready for game action, but then the Redskins had three late scoring drives so there is at least some hope going up against a Packers defence that couldnt contain 49ers WR Anquan Boldin and QB Colin Kaepernick in Week One. If RGIII is going to have success, wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Leonard Hankerson become interesting plays against the Pack. Though the Packers lost at San Francisco, they showed well and will likely be tough for the Redskins to cover. Green Bay may not operate as fast as Philadelphia, and rookie RB Eddie Lacy isnt as dangerous as Eagles RB LeSean McCoy but, even if TE Jermichael Finley isnt able to play, the Packers have better receiving options, especially if they get WR James Jones involved after he was a non-factor in Week One. TENNESSEE (+9.5) at HOUSTON Given the trouble that the Texans defence had for three quarters against San Diego, there is a chance for the Titans to be more productive than they were against Pittsburgh. QB Jake Locker will be trying to avoid pressure from DE J.J. Watt and the Houston secondary is pretty strong, but there should be opportunities for wide receivers Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington to get down the field. If the Titans are really going to shake the Texans, though, they need a strong effort from RB Chris Johnson, who delivered 70 rushing yards against the Steelers in Week One. Tennessees defence was successful in keeping the Steelers in check in Week One, but face a tougher test in the Texans. Houston shared carries carries between Arian Foster and Ben Tate in Week One and that may continue, as long as they are effective, while Foster gets accustomed to game action. MIAMI (+3) at INDIANAPOLIS Miami moved the ball with some success against Cleveland, at least through the air, so they should be able to get up and down the field against a Colts defence that ran into problems at times with Oaklands offence. Though he was nearly an afterthought in Week One, the Dolphins may get WR Mike Wallace more looks against the Indianapolis secondary. The biggest problem the Colts had with the Raiders offence was the mobility of QB Terrelle Pryor. While Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill isnt going to make a difference on the ground, that could offer some hope that the Dolphins ground game, led by RB Lamar Miller, might have some success after it was shut down by the Browns. Similarly, the Colts may have some difficulty running the ball as well, as RB Ahmad Bradshaw works his way back to full health, that will leave QB Andrew Luck vulnerable because he can count on Dolphins DE Cameron Wake getting into the backfield to break up plays. DALLAS (+2.5) at KANSAS CITY The Cowboys cant count on six turnovers like they got against the Giants, but Dallas has lots of weapons offensively and they were impressive enough in that win over the G-Men. Dallas biggest concern, on offence, is the health of No. 1 WR Dez Bryant, who has a sprained foot. If Bryants hurting, WR Miles Austin and TE Jason Witten will get more targets. Kansas Citys defence dominated against the Jaguars, but the Chiefs cant count on Dallas to be as inept as Jacksonville and the Cowboys offensive talent should force the Chiefs to open up more in their own right. The Giants had some success throwing the ball against Dallas -- at least when they werent turning it over -- so Alex Smith could give wide receivers Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery more work in Week Two. SAN DIEGO (+7) at PHILADELPHIA The Chargers looked good for a while before collapsing late against Houston. Philadelphia was unbelievably good before cruising to a closer-than-expected finish against Washington. If Philadelphias go-go style is too fast for the Chargers, like it was for the Redskins, then it could get ugly. The good news for the Chargers is that they shouldnt be surprised by the Eagles pace but, even so, there is plenty of appeal on the Eagles side of the field, where their offensive mainstays -- QB Michael Vick, RB LeSean McCoy, WR DeSean Jackson -- are seen as increasingly valuable because it appears that Philadelphia will consistently be running more plays than their opposition. DETROIT (pick) at ARIZONA A matchup of two of the games best wide receivers, with Detroits Calvin Johnson going up against Arizonas Larry Fitzgerald. Its not exactly head-to-head, but interesting nonetheless. The Lions should have an advantage in the running game so long as Reggie Bush stays healthy, but second-stringer Joique Bell has some value too. For Arizona, Rashard Mendenhall was decent in his first start with the Cardinals last week, but hes not likely to break a big run and the Lions defence really locked down against the run following Adrian Petersons early 78-yard run for a touchdown. Arizonas offence is at least competent with Carson Palmer at quarterback and the depth of their receiving corps -- Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts are strong complements to Fitzgerald -- may be a touch better than Detroit, even with Ryan Broyles expected back in the lineup for the Lions. NEW ORLEANS (-3) at TAMPA BAY New Orleans opened with a good win against Atlanta, and while their defence was good against Atlanta, they will still face a significant challenge keeping Bucs wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams, along with RB Doug Martin, under wraps. Maybe the Saints defence is much improved over last season, but this will be an opportunity to prove it.. Offensively, Drew Brees may lose access to Marques Colston, if Bucs CB Darrelle Revis ends up on him, but Brees isnt afraid to spread the ball around, so wideouts Lance Moore and Kenny Stills, TE Jimmy Graham and RB Darren Sproles are all going to get targets. Most likely, the Saints will continue running their three-headed monster out of the backfield, an arrangement that ruins their value for fantasy owners. DENVER (-4.5) at N.Y. GIANTS In the latest installment of the Manning Bowl, Eli has to be better than he was in Week One, while Peyton has to be worse because its just not reasonable to expect record-setting production in back-to-back games. Both teams have an abundance of quality receiving options, but questionable running games. For the Giants, WR Rueben Randle and TE Brandon Myers have joined Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks as top targets for Eli Manning and the Broncos are trying to find enough balls to go around now that WR Wes Welker and TE Julius Thomas have been added to Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. Denver doesnt have a set running game, as Ronnie Hillman, Montee Ball and Knowshon Moreno continue to battle for playing time. The Giants have a more defined number one back, David Wilson, but his hold on the job is tenuous after he fumbled twice in Week One. If Wilson puts another ball on the ground this week, dont be surprised to see a lot more of DaRel Scott or even recently-signed former Giant Brandon Jacobs. JACKSONVILLE (+5.5) at OAKLAND Chad Henne gets the start at quarterback for the Jaguars, which should improve the production of WR Cecil Shorts and a little offensive competence could work in favour of RB Maurice Jones-Drew. The Raiders had to be encouraged by what they saw from Terrelle Pryor last week and its on Pryor to build on that performance and do it against a lowly Jaguars team. With Pryor showing some competence as a passer, there could be more value for Raiders wide receivers Denarius Moore and Rod Streater. SAN FRANCISCO (+2.5) at SEATTLE Definitely the game of the weekend, with two powerhouse teams set to do battle. While 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick had his way against the Packers in Week One, the Seahawks have a better secondary, a group that wont be so easy to throw for 400-plus yards against. For that reason, the appeal of WR Anquan Boldin and TE Vernon Davis isnt as high this week. Seattle will face their own offensive challenges. QB Russell Wilson aired it out last week, with WR Doug Baldwin his favourite target, but any team going up against the San Francisco defence faces the prospect of getting shut down. RB Marshawn Lynch has had success against the Niners in the past and if he could grind out yards on the ground, that will help open up plays down the field. PITTSBURGH (+7) at CINCINNATI The Steelers will be trying to recover from a disastrous Week One effort while the Bengals looked pretty good in losing at Chicago. The Bengals have a difference-maker in WR A.J. Green and it falls on Steelers veteran CB Ike Taylor to keep him in check. RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis may hold the starting job for Cincinnati, but will need to be more productive if hes going to hold off rookie Giovani Bernard for playing time. Seeking redemption, RB Isaac Redman gets another chance to run for Steelers, but re-signed RB Jonathan Dwyer or Felix Jones could get touches if Redman falters again. This is all passing the time until rookie LeVeon Bell is ready to return to action.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Buddy Robinson scored 43 seconds apart in the second period to lead the Binghamton Senators to a 4-1 victory over the Bulldogs in American Hockey League action Friday night at the Bell Centre. The goals came off defensive lapses - missed coverage, and a mistake by goaltender Dustin Tokarski. Pageau was left alone in the slot for the equalizer, and Robinson benefited from Tokarskis lax play for the winner. "Those were two gifts. We gave them those goals," said Bulldogs coach Sylvain Lefebvre. "Those were glaring mistakes." With Hamilton leading 1-0 in the second period, the Senators tied the game at 15:00 when Pageau beat Tokarski above the glove into a gaping top corner. Pageau was left unmarked just outside the crease following a defensive breakdown, and could make no mistake from such close range. Robinson put Binghamton ahead less than a minute later, slotting home his ninth of the year past a sprawling Bulldogs goaltender. After an initial shot from the point, Tokarksi tried to smother the puck with his glove, but Senators forward Derek Grant got to it before him. Grant poked it out to a wide-open Robinson. "Its tough to come back from that," said Lefebvre. "Those really hurt your confidence. And were in a tough stretch right now, so confidence isnt coming easy to us. Sometimes we get discouraged too easily." The Bulldogs (22-24-5) found no way back after the abrupt turnaround. Instead, they were kept at bay by Binghamton (33-15-4) netminder Andrew Hammond, who was in fine form. Hammond made 31 saves, including 10 in the third period, for his 17th win of the season. Hamilton is slumping of late. Theyve gone 2-7-1 in their last 10 games, and have only scored four times in their last three. "Thats the story of our season so far," said forward Gabriel Dumont, who was kept off the score sheet for the fourth straight game. "Were trying to keep it simple and drive to the net, put pucks on the net, but were having trouble finding the back of the net." Dumont, whos played two games with the Montreal Canadiens this seasonn, has been a Bulldog for the last four years.dddddddddddd His struggling team has fallen to 13th in the Western Conference, and is eight points out of a playoff spot. "Its a frustrating season with some highs, and a lot of lows," he added. "Were still looking for consistency. Tonight, we were only able to score one goal." The goal was Nick Tarnaskys, and it opened the scoring at 4:18 of the second period. The six-foot-two Bulldogs forward used defenceman Mike Sdao as a screen to fool Hammond with a shot between the legs. "I got a lucky bounce at the blue-line," said Tarnasky, who was on a partial breakaway when he entered the Binghamton zone. "I heard somebody yelling: Youre on a two-on-one. But I wasnt. I was going to pass, but there was nobody there. "It was lucky enough that (Sdao) was coming across at the same time as I shot it. I dont think the goaltender was able to see it. That play gave us a little lift at the time." But it was all Binghamton after their two quick strikes later in the frame. Andre Petersson scored on a great individual effort at 12:29 of the third period to seal the victory, and Mike Hoffman added another in an empty net in the games final two minutes. Hoffman has 10 points (five goals, five assists) in his past five games. Hes second in the AHL in points with 65. Tokarski made 18 saves. There was little love lost between the teams to start the game. Tarnasky and Binghamtons Darren Kramer set the tone before the encounter even got underway, exchanging words and a few slashes during the pre-game warm-up. Tarnasky and Kramer waited only seven minutes into the game to solve their differences, dropping the gloves to earn fighting majors. Jarred Tinordi and the Senators Mark Borowiecki also fought in a first period that saw 34 penalty-minutes doled out by the referees. Notes: The attendance at the Bell Centre was 8,771. a The Senators, Ottawas AHL affiliate, are in first place in the East Division. Theyve won four games in a row. a This was the second and last matchup of the season between Hamilton and Binghamton. Tinordi scored in overtime to lead the Bulldogs to victory over the Senators on Feb. 8. ' ' '
