Tom Daley and Dan Goodfellow were content with European Championships silver after Germany stole gold in the final round at the London Aquatics Centre on Thursday. Jack Laugher won silver in the mens three-metres springboard final before Daley and Goodfellow competed in the 10m synchro event.Daley, who won 3m mixed synchro gold with Grace Reid on Wednesday, and Goodfellow led after five of the six dives. But the pair did not execute their final dive, the back three-and-a-half somersaults with pike, as they would have liked, allowing Sascha Klein and Patrick Hausding to triumph by less than one point, with 445.26 to the Britons 444.30.Daley, who is 22 on May 21, said: Its not the result we wanted, but I cant say its necessarily a bad thing. Theres a lot of positives to take from it.We were only two points off our personal best. I said to Dan dont worry, let the Germans have this one and well be coming to get them at the Olympics.Theyve been doing synchro for over 10 years and weve only been doing it for 10 months. It was less than a point in the end. Half a point from any judge throughout the whole competition couldve changed it.Were still a new pair and thats whats exciting about this. Theres another few months yet until the Olympic Games.Goodfellow, 19, from Cambridge, added: I am a bit gutted. We wanted that gold medal, especially in front of a home crowd. It just gives you that fuel to do better in the Olympics. Mixed emotions, but Im happy.Daley won bronze at the London 2012 Olympics and returns in the 10m individual event on Sunday.He said: Im really excited about Sunday. Im feeling good and I cant wait to dive. Laugher won silver in the three-metres springboard final despite cramp World Championships bronze medallist Laugher led after the opening two rounds of his final, but debilitating cramp in his calf muscles contributed to a poor third dive.Laugher scored 45.90 for his inward three-and-a-half somersaults with tuck, but responded with three strong dives to take silver behind Russias Evgenii Kuznetsov.The 21-year-old City of Leeds diver said: Its my first ever European medal, so Im really happy, especially to do it at home.My first two rounds were brilliant. I even got a 10 on the reverse. Unfortunately on that second dive, both my calves cramped up really badly.It put me off a little bit and meant my third dive was really hard to complete. Im not going to blame it entirely on that, but to stand on the back of a board with cramped calves is extremely painful. It did affect me.The way I bounced back with my back three dives was really good. To get a silver medal, Im very proud.

.com) - In the absence of Dwight Howard, Donatas Motiejunas had a career night to keep the Houston Rockets winning streak alive.With an overall record of 115-110-1, including 7-8-1 last week, TSN football analyst Chris Schultz is back with his Week 16 NFL selections in Risky Business. Tennessee at Jacksonville (-3) For the players, just knowing they will be on a national stage will bring out great effort. on Thursday night. Not because the fans and media are watching, but more because their NFL peers are watching and looking at individual performance and ability. Tennessee is down to Charlie Whitehurst as their third starting quarterback of the season. Whitehurst, like all Titan quarterbacks this season has completed under 60 per cent of his passes. For the Jaguars, it will be interesting to see if Toby Gerhart can reestablish himself as a primary running back. A top and optimistic free agency acquisition, Gerhart needs these two last games to earn his value again. Late in the season, I have to go with Jacksonville at home and winning to eliminate themselves from first-overall pick eligibility for 2015. Jaguars cover. Philadelphia (-9) at Washington This is pretty much a playoff game for the Philadelphia Eagles. On offence, the high tempo style of play that the Eagles run is extremely entertaining and explosive, but it is also dangerous and difficult to master. The Eagles have 34 turnovers so for this season, the highest number in the entire league. These last two games for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III are very important for his career. You definitely get the sense that Jay Gruden is not sold on Griffin, but if he has two rock solid games - especially against Philadelphia and Dallas - perception can change. This is a divisional game, so Washington has a good book on the Eagle offence. I’d bet Philadelphia wins, but Washington shows up. Redskins on points. San Diego at San Francisco (-2.5) I think the most disturbing aspect of 49er football is that Bruce Miller, a fullback, was Colin Kaepernicks leading receiver against the Seattle Seahawks with four catches. Not Anquan Boldin, not Vernon Davis, not Michael Crabtree or Steve Johnson or Brandon Lloyd. Bruce Miller. Logic says San Diego rolls with two more wins to finish the year at 10. But you take away a controversial hit in the chest of Russell Wilson last week, and the 49ers could have taken the Seahawks into overtime. 49ers. Baltimore (-4.5) at Houston The Texans are down to their fourth quarterback and face an uphill climb to the playoffs. Unless Arian Foster can have a 150-yard day on the ground, it’s likely the Ravens can dominate defensively. At 9-5 with this game in Houston and Cleveland at home next week, the Ravens could very easily finish with 11 wins. Pittsburgh is in Kansas City and Cincinnati plays Denver this week, both matchups are competitive advantages for Baltimore. If Joe Flacco can get an early lead, Thad Lewis or Case Keenum will be forced to throw the ball and play catch up football. Baltimore wins by seven to cover. Green Bay (-10.5) at Tampa Bay I anticipate the poor receiver performance by the Green Bay Packers will not be repeated against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. Green Bay had seven drops last week in Buffalo, the highest in a game by any team since 2008. Seven drops is as many as many as a team would drop in half a season. Solving the Buccaneers catching problems is Mike Evans, who is having an astonishing year as the team’s top receiver. However, Evan’s can’t do it all and, as an offence, Tampa Bay has scored 17 points or less in a game. I can see Green Bay scoring their season average of 31. Packers. Kansas City at Pittsburgh (-3) The Pittsburgh Steelers have the two most consistently explosive players in the NFL on their offence. If you add up the rushing yards and receiving yards of Leveon Bell and Antonio Brown, they total 3,541 yards and 21 touchdowns. Now, if you add up the rushing, receiving yards of Jammal Charles and tight end Travis Kelce - the Chiefs top receiver – they total 1,932 yards and 14 touchdowns. The Chiefs have zero touchdown passes to any of their wide receivers. Not one! It’s amazing that the Chiefs are just two games away from going an entire NFL season without 1 touchdown pass to a wide receiver. Is it an anomaly and oddity, or execution weakness? Steelers. Cleveland at Carolina (No line) It wont get any easier for Johnny Manziel, as moves on from the tough defence in Cincinnati to that of the Panthers. The game will slow down a bit for Manziel in his second game, but most young quarterbacks struggle on the road early in their careers. Whether Cam Newton starts or not, is not a big issue for Carolina. Derek Anderson has five touchdown passes to no interceptions and is completing 67 per cent of his passes. All of a sudden Derek Anderson is a commodity to be looked at as a backup quarterback that may have starting skills. At 5-8, as crazy as it sounds, Carolina can still win the NFC South by beating Cleveland this week, besting Atlanta next week and having the Saints lose to Atlanta this week or in Tampa Bay. The great battle to watch in this game? Browns cornerback Joe Haden against Panthers rookie Kelvin Benjamin. Carolina. Detroit (-7) at Chicago It’s hard to have performance faith in the Bears after watching a disorganized and unmotivated effort against the Saints on Monday night. Now, the Lions come to town. Detroit is tied with Green Bay and if the Lions beat the Bears on Sunday and beeat the Packers next week, then they will win the NFC North.dddddddddddd Quite simply, the Lions control their own destiny. No team has allowed fewer points than Detroit this season with 238, and as long as they concentrate here and now and don’t look ahead to next week’s Packer game, the Saints 31-15 win over Bears could be duplicated. Lions cover. Minnesota at Miami (-6.5) There’s a lot of talk of a new head coach in Miami, which is due as much to Joe Philbins personality as it is to his 22-24 record – and no playoff appearances. Minnesota’s coaching situation, meanwhile is in no doubt. Mike Zimmer is the man with the Vikings and his defense held Detroit to a season-low, 233 yards last week. Another major positive is Zimmer has great confidence in quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the present and the future. Under Zimmer, the Vikings are becoming very good at staying in the present moment and never look to far forward or behind. Vikings. Atlanta at New Orleans (-6) In Week 1, New Orleans at Atlanta was an entertaining and well played Falcons 37-34 win, which was determined by a key turnover by the Saints in overtime. Did the Falcons beat the Saints or did the Saints beat themselves on that day? Move 15 weeks ahead, the venue will change but the goal of an NFC South victory will not. The number one key issue is the relative heath of Julio Jones. I say relative health because even if he plays, he may not be 100 per cent due a hip injury. Both teams have had absolutely bizarre seasons of ineffective play in almost all aspects of football. But this is a divisional game and it could mean the difference between a home playoff game and golf. Both team know this is it. Falcons. New England (-10) at New York Jets The Patriots on offence are like any great team, once they figure you out, find a flow, a rhythm and a weakness, they explode. The Patriots scored 24 in the third quarter of last week’s game against Miami and 41-13. Last week, Tom Brady won his 12th divisional title, the most by any quarterback in NFL history. The good news for the Jets was they ended a three-game losing streak with a win at Tennessee last week. But Tennessee was just nine yards away from winning the game until time ran out, not to mention the Titans are 2-11. Patriots. New York at St. Louis (-5) Pass protection will be really important in this game for Eli Manning after Robert Quinn and the St. Louis pass rush failed to factor in the Rams loss to Arizona last week. Odell Beckham needs 28 receiving yards to hit 1000 on the year, and by doing so would be the first rookie in Giants history to do so. As unusual as this may sound, the giants have known for weeks they are not a playoff team. The Rams, meanwhile, just found out last Thursday. Advantage Giants. Buffalo (-5.5) at Oakland This will be an excellent test for Derek Carr. The Bills defence held Peyton Manning to 173 passing yards and Aaron Rodgers to 180. If Carr can have four quarters of success he really has arrived. Pass protection is so important; Carr has only been sacked 20 times but has been hit or hurried more than 100 times. The Bills could have a 10-win season by beating the Raiders and Patriots next week! I’m taking the Bills. Indianapolis at Dallas (-3) Of all positions in football an NFL running back has the shortest life span because they get hit so often and in so many different ways. DeMarco Murray will be a gameday decision. That will be a critical decision as no running back in football gains more yards before contact, and no running back in football gains more yards after contact. Key match-up in this game: Colts cornerback Vontae Davis, who has a league high 20 passes defended, four interceptions, and has not allowed a touchdown pass this season, against Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, who had 114 receiving yards against Philadelphia and three touchdowns. TY Hilton could be out a hamstring issue. Will the edge be taken off for the Colts after winning the AFC South? No way. Colts. Seattle (-8) at Arizona I dont know how they are going to do it but I think they can do it and that is keep this game within eight points. No doubt that Ryan Lindley is painfully inexperienced, having thrown only 10 NFL passes this year, and now faces an NFL defence in Seattle that is playing its best. Still, Arizona on defence is their equal. Seven times Arizona corralled, contained and caught Russell Wilson behind the line of scrimmage in their previous meeting four weeks ago. This rarely works, but I would not be surprised to see Logan Thomas at quarterback too for Arizona. The team that wins this game has the inside lane in the race for NFC home field advantage. Bruce Arians will be at his imaginative best come Sunday night. Cardinals cover. Denver (-3) at Cincinnati The Bengals go from Johnny Manziel to Peyton Manning in one week. And it’s a different Peyton Manning. Only 20 passes thrown in each of the last two games at San Diego and Buffalo but Manning is in total control of the offence. Lost in the success of Jeremy Hill and the power running of Cincinnati was a very below average deep ball throwing day for Andy Dalton. If Denver limits Hill and forces Dalton to beat them, I am not confident he can do it. Denver has to win this one. They are tied with New England at 11-3 with two to go, but New England beat Denver already this season in New England. Broncos. ' ' '
