, who lost to Scotlands Kyle Smith in the Page 1-2

ORCHARD PARK, N. http://www.atlantafalconsnflstore.com/authentic-joplo-bartu-falcons-jersey/ .Y. -- The Buffalo Bills and their fans cant say they werent warned about potential trouble ahead. It was at the height of their surprising start, when general manager Buddy Nix was expressing concerns about the Bills lack of experienced depth at several positions. Those fears are now being realized on a team thats lost much of its momentum while suddenly attempting to plug untested rookies into key starting spots to replace injured veterans. "Its showing up," Nix said Wednesday. The Bills (5-4) have lost three of four and are in jeopardy of slipping further out of the AFC playoff race in preparing to play at Miami (2-7) on Sunday. And if the Bills no longer resemble the dynamic team with the prolific offence and opportunistic defence that rolled to a 4-1 start, its in part because their roster has been decimated by a rash of injuries. Centre Eric Wood (right knee) became the third regular to go on the season-ending injured reserve list in as many weeks on Tuesday. That leaves the Bills preparing for Miami with a starting lineup featuring as many as 10 players who had five or fewer starts before this season. That includes rookie Chris Hairston expected to start at left tackle for Demetrius Bell, whos missed five games with a shoulder injury. Second-year defensive lineman Alex Carrington is now starting at left end in place of rookie first-round pick Marcell Dareus, who has shifted to nose tackle to replace Kyle Williams (season-ending left foot injury). And then theres linebacker Danny Batten, who missed his entire rookie season last year, but has started in place of both Shawne Merriman (season-ending Achilles tendon surgery) and Chris Kelsay (left calf). "We think we have some good players. The problem is we dont have experienced depth," coach Chan Gailey said. "Theyre all young players, and theyre having to learn on the fly. Thats not an easy thing to do." And thats something the Bills could not afford given that Nix and Gailey are only into Year 2 of an extensive building process that relies more on improving the team through the draft and not free agency. Bills players are refusing to use injuries as a crutch. "Some people might be more affected by it, but to us thats not an excuse," quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. "You have to take advantage of your opportunities. And thats kind of the theme for this team. We are the no-names." No-production has been more like it of late. Buffalos scores 18 points total in its past two games after scoring 20 or more in each of its first seven. Fitzpatricks numbers have dropped. He had 1,040 yards passing with nine touchdowns and four interceptions in his first four games. In his past five, Fitzpatrick has 1,036 yards passing with seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. Buffalos receivers had little experience to begin with at the start of the season. And the groups been thinned further with Roscoe Parrish (ankle) on injured reserve and no one stepping in to provide a reliable deep threat. "Were cool," receiver Stevie Johnson said. "We can handle this. Every team goes through something like this. We lost two games, but were still a good team." Johnson leads Buffalo with 44 catches and 531 yards, but he was hampered by a groin injury earlier this season. And his status to play this weekend is uncertain after he hurt his left shoulder against Dallas. The troubles are apparent on a defence that remains leaky and incapable of establishing a pass rush. Buffalo has 15 sacks, but 10 of those came in a 23-0 win over Washington three weeks ago. Whats worse, the Bills are also no longer forcing takeaways. After leading the league with 16 takeaways (12 interceptions and four fumble recoveries) through Week 5 of the season, Buffalos managed just four (three interceptions and a fumble) in its past four games. "It might be a little bit of a lack of experience because we have a lot of veterans that have been hurt," linebacker Nick Barnett acknowledged. "Were going to go through some struggles of getting guys ready. But its all in the energy. If youre going to have mistakes, just go out there and play 110 per cent and I think well be fine." Barnett understands that the Bills need to turn things around quickly. "Were still in the hunt of it," Barnett said. "Its definitely now or never."http://www.atlantafalconsnflstore.com/authentic-tony-gonzalez-falcons-jersey/ .com) - LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and six rebounds as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Orlando Magic 103-92 on Saturday night. http://www.atlantafalconsnflstore.com/authentic-andy-levitre-falcons-jersey/ .com) - Mikko Korhonen carded a 5-under 67 on Thursday to claim medalist honors at the European Tours Final Qualifying Stage tournament.(CCA) - Canadas Braden Calvert will be playing for the bronze medal after an extra-end loss to Switzerland in the Page 3-4 playoff on Tuesday at the World Junior Curling Championships in Switzerland. Calvert and his team of Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch, Brendan Wilson, alternate Matt Dunstone and coach Tom Clasper earned their spot in the playoffs by finishing in third place in the round robin with a 6-3 record. "Were a little disappointed right now," said Calvert immediately after the game. "We played a lot better in the second half after getting off to a sluggish start.  We didnt really make the other team make too difficult shots." Both teams stuck to defence, and after eight ends the score was tied 3-3. Switzerland scored two in the ninth, but Calvert was able to force the extra end with a perfect draw for two on his last shot of the 10th. In the extra end, Switzerland missed a couple of tick shots, allowing Canada to draw around and lie one. With his last, Calvert drew the front off the four-foot to lie two, and Schwaller elected to try the double take-out. http://www.atlantafalconsnflstore.com/authentic-mike-person-falcons-jersey/. . His shooter just hung on for the score of one and a ticket to the semifinal. "It was a really, really tough game," said Swiss skip Schwaller. "It was so close in the end, maybe just a few centimetres in it, just crazy. We played really defensively, that was the key to winning. Canadian curling always involves a lot of stones and guards - we wanted to play defensively and not play their game." Tuesday afternoon, Schwaller will play Norways Eirik Mjoeen, who lost to Scotlands Kyle Smith in the Page 1-2 playoff game. Smith goes directly to Wednesdays final, where he will try to defend his 2013 world junior championship title. Canada will face the loser of the semifinal between Norway and Switzerland in the bronze medal game on Wednesday at 7am et/4am pt, and Calvert says the Canadians will be ready. "I think well get rested and fired up to play the bronze medal game," he said. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys ' ' '
