BALTIMORE -- The Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens realize theyre not good en
BALTIMORE -- The Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens realize theyre not good enough to win blowouts week after week.So, its absolutely essential that they learn how to win the close ones. While the Redskins appear to be getting the hang of it, the Ravens still have some work to do.Combining a stingy defense with strong special teams play, Washington extended its winning streak to three games Sunday by defeating Baltimore 16-10 .We know these games are going to come down to the wire, coach Jay Gruden said. I dont know if well ever dominate everybody and win 53-3. We just have to stay resilient, focused and play hard for the entire length of the game. These guys so far have done a nice job of that.Washington (3-2) blanked the Ravens (3-2) in the second half, allowing only 125 yards and surviving a last-minute drive.Every game the Ravens have played this season has been decided by six points or fewer. They won the first three and lost the last two.We will let you guys talk about how bad we stink, but we know there is still a lot of football to be played, linebacker Terrell Suggs said. It could be a lot worse, but we know we should be in a better place. We have 11 games left, and we are going to go to work.Some things we learned about the Redskins and Ravens:MANY HAPPY RETURNS: Last season, the Redskins were a disaster returning punts, ranking 31st in the NFL at 4.8 yards per attempt. After five weeks in 2016, Washington is soaring at 24.3.Jamison Crowder served as the primary returner both years. So whats going on this season?From my perspective, the guys are blocking a lot better, he said. Im able to catch the ball and have a lot of yardage, even before the first defender is down there.Crowders 85-yard punt return in the first quarter was a huge boost for a team trying to dig out of an early 7-0 hole.I saw great blocking and an excellent run breaking tackles, Gruden said. Hes been outstanding for us so far in all phases.RUN TO GLORY: Even though the Ravens ran the ball well in the first half, their strength is passing the ball. So they abandoned their ground game after halftime, and the move did not produce the desired results.Baltimore gained 74 yards rushing over the first 30 minutes and led 10-6. After that, they ran six times for 21 yards against the leagues 30th-ranked run defense.Most of that is because we didnt get first downs, coach John Harbaugh said. You cant just run the ball. You have to make plays in the passing game.PACK YOUR BAGS: The Redskins have found their comfort zone on the road.Washington improved to 2-0 in away games and has won five straight on the road dating to last year.It is very satisfying for us to beat a good team like this at their place, quarterback Kirk Cousins said.It was the Redskins first win in Baltimore since they defeated the Colts at Memorial Stadium in 1955.Washington started last season 0-5 on the road.FAILURE TO CONVERT: Twice, the Ravens had outstanding field position from turnovers. Both times, they failed to capitalize on the gifts.Thats an annoying trend for a team that can use all the points it can get.In the second quarter, after Zachary Orr forced a fumble and jumped on the ball at the Redskins 15, the Ravens faced a fourth down at the 17 before a fake field goal went awry.We saw something we thought we could exploit, we gave it a shot, Harbaugh said. It didnt work out. Im not second guessing it.Later, C.J. Mosley picked off a pass at the 13. He brought it back 12 yards, but lost control of the ball at the one and it rolled out of bounds in the end zone, giving possession back to Washington on a touchback.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Stephone Anthony Jersey . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. Dave Waymer Jersey . Walcott is available for Saturdays home match against Southampton as Arsenal looks to extend its two-point lead at the top of the Premier League. The Gunners are currently the second highest scorers in the league but Wenger insists Walcott will add something extra to his team. http://www.customsaintsjersey.com/custom...1832e.html . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. Hoby Brenner Jersey . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. Joel Hilgenberg Jersey . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. MIAMI -- Giancarlo Stanton homered and had his first four-hit game since 2012, driving in three runs to give Jose Fernandez all the support he needed, and the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 7-2 on Saturday night.Miami rocked Jacob deGrom (6-5), who allowed 10 hits and five runs, both season highs, and lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his shortest outing since August.Fernandez (12-4) gave up two runs in seven innings to match his career high for victories, achieved in his 2013 rookie season. He also had two hits, hiking his average to .265, and drove in the first run.Fernandez improved to 26-1 with a 1.47 ERA in 37 starts at Marlins Park.Home Run Derby winner Stanton put Miami ahead to stay in the third inning when he hit a majestic two-run homer off the left-field scoreboard above the 401-foot sign. He added an RBI single in the fourth, and singled in the first and sixth, hiking his average to .241 after a prolonged slump.DeGrom was coming off the first complete game of his career, a one-hit shutout in his last start, but his anticipated pitchers duel with Fernandez failed to materialize. The Mets right-hander allowed at least two baserunners in every inning he worked, and his ERA rose to 2.73.DeGroms best moment came at the plate, where he doubled to lead off the third, his first extra-base hit since July 2015. He scored on a single by Yoenis Cespedes, and James Loneys sacrifice fly gave the Mets a 2-1 lead.But that was all they managed against Fernandez. He hit 99 mph in the first inniing, and his final pitch was a 98-mph fastball to Cespedes for strike three.ddddddddddddChristian Yelich led off the Miami third with a single, and Stanton dented the scoreboard with a homer that landed between the words BALLS and STRIKES. Stanton has six homers in 10 games against the Mets this year, including three this month off deGrom.Yelich had three of the Marlins 16 hits, and Martin Prado drove in two runs.SUZUKI UPDATEMiamis Ichiro Suzuki grounded out as a pinch hitter to end the eighth and remained four hits shy of 3,000.TRAINERS ROOMMets: 1B Lucas Duda (back) visited the team, took swings for the first time since his injury and said he hopes to be ready for a rehab assignment in a couple of weeks. I feel good. Im progressing on the right track, said Duda, who hasnt faced pitching yet.REHABMarlins: 2B Dee Gordon went 2 for 13 in his first four games with Triple-A New Orleans as he prepares to return next week from an 80-game suspension for a positive drug test. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said reports regarding Gordons progress have been encouraging. Hes swinging the bat good and looks good for a guy who hasnt played in a while, Mattingly said.UP NEXTLHP Steven Matz (7-6, 3.56) is scheduled to start Sunday for the Mets in the rubber game of the series against RHP Jose Urena (1-1, 6.23). Matz is 0-2 with a 7.07 ERA in three career starts against Miami. ' ' '
