PHILADELPHIA - After building a 27-point lead, the Philadelphia Eagles needed a defensive stand to win the game.Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, the defence and special teams each scored and the Eagles held on for a 34-28 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.We have to learn how to finish better, Foles said. As a team, were not there yet.Austin Davis rallied St. Louis (1-3) from a 34-7 deficit with three straight scores, including a 5-yard pass to Brian Quick that cut it to 34-28 with 4:41 left.The Rams had a chance for the win when they got the ball at their 7 with 1:47 left. Davis threw a 43-yard pass to Quick on first down, but Philadelphias defence finally made a stop. Davis was under pressure when he threw an incomplete pass on fourth-and-13.We were rolling. I had no doubts in my mind we were going to win, Davis said of the final drive.Davis, who began the year as the No. 3 quarterback, finished with 375 yards passing and three TDs in his first game since being elevated to starter for the rest of the season.The Eagles (4-1) rebounded from a tough loss at San Francisco with a strong all-around performance until the offence stumbled and defence nearly collapsed in the fourth quarter. Chris Maragos returned a blocked punt for a touchdown, Cedric Thornton recovered a fumble for a score and nearly took another one the distance.Tough 4-1, soft 4-1, it doesnt matter, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. Youre 4-1 and you go back to work Tuesday.The Eagles have scored seven TDs on special teams and defence, including five in the past two games. Meanwhile, Kellys high-flying, up-tempo offence isnt clicking the way it did last year a€” but the team is winning.Turnovers equal victories, Thornton said. We try to get our hands on the ball and weve been capitalizing on it.Foles tossed a 9-yard pass to Riley Cooper with 30 seconds left in the second quarter, ending a drought of 18 drives and 97:04 without an offensive TD. He connected with Jeremy Maclin on a 24-yard pass for a 34-7 lead in the third.On St. Louis first play of the second half, Trent Cole sacked Davis and forced a fumble that Thornton recovered in the end zone for a 27-7 lead. Later in the third quarter, Thornton picked up a fumble after Brandon Graham stripped Zac Stacy and rumbled 40 yards before he was dragged down from behind. That set up Foles second TD pass.LeSean McCoy, an All-Pro last year, had 81 yards rushing. He had 39 yards on 29 carries in the previous two games.The Rams wouldnt go down easily. Benny Cunningham had a 14-yard TD run and Davis fired a 30-yard pass to Kenny Britt to cut it to 34-21 with 9:02 left. Then, a fumble by Foles led to another TD.But Davis couldnt complete a remarkable comeback.This team likes to play. They always believe they have a chance, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said.The Eagles took a 7-0 lead when James Casey blocked a punt, Maragos scooped it up and ran 10 yards for a touchdown. It was the second straight game the Eagles blocked a punt for a score and the first time in team history theyve had a TD on special teams in three consecutive games. Chris Polk returned a kickoff 102 yards in a win over Washington in Week 3.The Eagles first two drives stalled inside the 10. Cody Parkey kicked field goals of 26 and 27 yards.After E.J. Gaines intercepted Foles deep pass at the Rams 16, Davis led them on a long drive. He scrambled backward, avoided a pass rush and threw from the 25, an 8-yard TD pass to Quick in the back of the end zone to cut it to 13-7.NOTES: Fisher, who began his NFL coaching career as an assistant under Buddy Ryan in Philadelphia in 1986, fell to 4-1 vs. the Eagles. ... The Ravens in 2002 were the last team to score a TD on a blocked punt two straight games before Eagles did it. ... Stacy left the game with a calf injury. ... Eagles LB DeMeco Ryans (right groin) and RB/KR Chris Polk (hamstring) didnt return.___AP NFL websites: دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

. Mired in an offensive slump, Lowry - the NBAs leader in taking charges this season - did what he has learned to do best, standing his ground and drawing a crucial offensive foul on the Cavaliers all-star point guard. Fast forward 30 seconds to the Cavs next possession, with the home team still trailing by three, Spencer Hawes - one of the leagues best passing big men - threw an interception, intended for Tyler Zeller and picked off by DeMar DeRozan. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

. As if he had been rehearsing it, Vasquez looked around with a grimacing stare as he clinched two fists and flexed his muscles. What do you think of DeMar DeRozans face after he hits a big shot, he was asked moments earlier.CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers added a pair of unrestricted free agents Thursday, signing safety Thomas DeCoud to a two-year contract and tight end Ed Dickson to a one-year deal. Financial terms were not released. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound DeCoud has spent his entire six-year NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons and went to the Pro Bowl in 2012. He has started 78 of his last 79 games, including 15 last year when he registered 83 tackles and returned a fumble 30 yards for a touchdown. "Thomas provides a veteran in the secondary who is familiar with the NFC South and has been a very solid player," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in a press release. "We are pleased to add him to a safety group that has good experience and production." Its unclear what DeCouds arrival will mean for safety Charles Godfrey, who missed 14 games last season with a torn Achilles tendon. The Panthers could save more than $5 million if the release the veteran safety -- meaningful money for a team that doesnt have much room to manoeuvr under the NFL salary cap. Plus, the Panthers already signed free-agent safety Roman Harper from the New Orleans Saints earlier this off-season. DeCoud was a third-round draft pick of the Falcons in 2009 and has played in 89 games with 507 career tackles, 14 interceptions, three sacks, four forced fummbles and three fumble recoveries.dddddddddddd He has played in five playoff games, starting four. Like DeCoud, Dickson is also a former third-round draft pick who has played his entire career with one team. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Dickson started 44 games and played in 60 during his four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. He has 111 career receptions for 1,178 yards and seven touchdowns since joining the league in 2010. Dickson also brings plenty of playoff experience to Carolina. He has played in eight playoff games with five starts and helped the Ravens win the Super Bowl two years ago. "Ed is a young player who has shown he is a capable blocker as well as receiver in the league," Rivera said in a release. "He provides experienced depth at the tight end position and we look forward to having him in the mix." Greg Olsen has been the teams starting tight end for the last three seasons and is expected to remain the teams go-to guy in short-yardage situations. But Dickson offers a nice complement for quarterback Cam Newton as the Panthers look to refocus on their running game this season. Dicksons best season came in 2011 when he started 16 games and caught 54 passes for 528 yards with five touchdowns. Last season he started 14 games for the Ravens and caught 25 catches for 273 yards and one touchdown. ' ' '
