DENVER --?Paxton Lynch fought off nerves Sunday in his first NFL start as the Denver Broncos quarterback. Gump Worsley Stars Jersey .But he couldnt overcome the Atlanta Falcons.Atlanta sacked Lynch six times as he finished 23-of-35 for 223 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the Broncos 23-16 loss, their first of the season.Lynch looked unsettled in the pocket at times against a Falcons defense that entered the game 30th in the league in total defense, 31st in pass defense and with just four sacks.Obviously you have some butterflies in your first NFL start, Lynch said. Its not a preseason game and your team is 4-0. You are excited about that, but you have to focus on the team and winning the ballgame. After that first drive, I was ready to go and ready to play with those guys.Lynch, the Broncos first-round draft pick in April, started while Trevor Siemian recovers from a left shoulder injury. Siemian, who had practiced on a limited basis this past week, was ruled out after a brief throwing session Saturday.Lynch fumbled twice -- the Broncos recovered both -- and before a surge in the fourth quarter, which the Falcons entered leading by 17, he had just 101 yards passing.?I am upset, obviously, because we lost, Lynch said. I am kind of happy that I got the first one under my belt. My first start with these guys and having a chance to play with them. If I get put in that situation again, I will know how to handle it a little bit better than I did the first time. I am glad I got the experience, but I am also upset that we didnt come out with the win.The Broncos also didnt provide Lynch the best of support, rushing for 85 yards in their third consecutive game with less than 100 yards rushing.The Broncos pass protection was spotty at times, as well, with right tackle Ty Sambrailo being replaced in the fourth quarter.We have to help him better, us as coaches, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. We got down early in the game. We were committed to running the ball [Sunday] and tried to do that early. We did not run the ball well. We get down by 13, something like that, and were struggling to protect him. We put him in a really tough situation. Thats not the type of game you want to put him in.It was uncertain whether Lynch would start the Broncos Thursday night game at San Diego, which stands as the shortest turnaround between games they face this season.Siemian said after Sundays game that he had thrown a little bit at the teams practice Saturday when it was determined he would not play against the Falcons. Siemian also said he still believed he was close to returning to the lineup but would see how he felt this week and what the teams medical staff said in the coming days.Well see. ... Ill take it one day at a time and get right [Monday], Siemian said.Said Lynch: Im just going to keep approaching it like I have been approaching it. I am going to take it day by day, and if my number gets called again, then I am going to make sure I am ready to go out there and play. If my number isnt called, I am going to make sure to be ready to play if I have to go back in the game again. Brett Hull Jersey .

Shooting guard?J. Anton Khudobin Jersey .R. Smith will not attend the Cleveland Cavaliers minicamp this week in California as he and the team remain at an impasse in contract talks, sources told ESPN.com.Cavs players and coaches are gathering for workouts for several days this week in Santa Barbara ahead of the start of training camp next week. The session is meant to create camaraderie ahead of the season. Last year, the team gathered in Miami for a camp that helped launch their eventual championship season.Smiths agent, Rich Paul, and the Cavs have been in a standoff since July, when Smith opted out of his contract. No recent progress has been made in the talks, sources said. Smith, who played a significant role at both ends of the court, is seeking a multiyear deal.Smith averaged 12.4 points per game last season, shooting 40 percent from the 3-point line.Smith is focused on returning to the Cavs -- and the team wants him back -- but Smith likely wont hesitate to miss part of training camp to see if his leverage changes. Other teams currently have cap space, and events in the preseason can change the situation. Last season, the Cavs were at an impasse with Paul and?free agent Tristan Thompson that saw Thompson miss all of the preseason before coming to terms.The Cavs have had free agents miss the entire preseason in contract stalemates three times since 2007 --Thompson, Anderson Varejao and Sasha Pavlovic -- while Dan Gilbert has owned the team.One of the reasons Smiths talks have failed to find common ground is the wide variety of contracts shooting guards signed during the offseason. Comparable shooting guards include Kent Bazemore (four years, $70 million), Eric Gordon (four years, $53 million) Jamal Crawford (three years, $42 million), Courtney Lee (four years, $48 million) and Joe Johnson (two years, $22 million).Over the past two summers, the Cavs have locked up nearly every player on the roster to rich, multiyear deals -- including four-time MVP?LeBron James, who signed a three-year, $100 million deal this summer. Last September, Smith bet on himself by agreeing to a deal that was only fully guaranteed for one season at $5 million.

They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Bronson Arroyos first pitch of the game clocked 70 mph on the Great American Ball Park radar gun. The next two came in at 72 and 72 mph. Nothing special there, except the Rockies couldnt touch em. Arroyo limited the NLs most prolific offence to four singles in eight innings, and Jay Bruce had a two-run homer among his three hits, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over Colorado on Monday night. The Reds have three shutouts in their last four games. Theyve blanked out six of their last 21 opponents, tying them with St. Louis and Pittsburgh for the league lead with nine shutouts this season. Arroyo (6-5) allowed only one runner to reach second base while throwing 86 pitches that sometimes seemed oh-so-slow. "I didnt have amazing stuff," Arroyo said. "Things just worked out. It was one of those games. I was able to keep guys off second base. Had some quick innings, kept my pitch count down. Some days the ball bounces your way." Arroyo wasnt amazing, but the results were impressive. "He kept them off balance," manager Dusty Baker said. "He had good command of his pitches. He was able to put his fastball where he wanted. Thats a tough ballclub to shut out. Bronson was masterful." Aroldis Chapman took the radar gun to a different level in the ninth, hitting 100 mph while fanning three and walking one. The left-hander got his 15th save in 17 chances. Bruce scored on Todd Fraziers single in the fourth inning off Tyler Chatwood (3-1) and hit his ninth homer off left-hander Josh Outman in the eighth. The Rockies pitching staff had a setback for the second day in a row. Chatwood left with a sore triceps after pitching only four innings. Rockies closer Rafael Betancourt went on the 15-day disabled list over the weekend with a strained groin. Chatwood batted in the fifth, bunted and was thrown out. Rob Scahill had been throwing in the bullpen and replaced Chatwood, who threw 64 pitches and allowed four hits and one run. Chatwood felt pain on a pitch in the third inning and it bothered him whenever he threw a fastball in the fourth. They took him out as a precaution to get treatment. Its uunclear whether it will force him to miss a start. Mike Gartner Stars Jersey. "They seem to think its not serious, just a little inflammation," Chatwood said. "Ive had soreness, but Ive never had this kind of soreness. It was a little different." The right-hander was coming off one of his noteworthy starts. He fanned a career-high 10 in six innings against Houston. Arroyo came in with a 4-8 career record against the Rockies, but kept them off balance from the start. The Rockies lead the NL in runs, but couldnt do much with Arroyos unorthodox approach. "Hes tough, Arroyo," manager Walt Weiss said. "Hes good at reading swings and going back and forth and changing sequences and speeds." The Reds have gone only 3-3 in the past week because of a slumping offence. They used a couple of well-placed hits to get a run in the fourth. Bruce went the opposite way to left field, beating Colorados infield shift, for a single with two outs. He stole his first base of the season and came around when Frazier flicked a low-and-away pitch to left field, one hand leaving the bat as he made contact. Bruce scored as Carlos Gonzalezs throw to the plate hit him in the back. "Thats one, already," Bruce said of his steal. "Im just trying to play the game. In that situation, you do everything you can to get to second and into scoring position, and it paid off." Zack Cozart singled in the eighth ahead of Bruces homer, extending his hitting streak to a season-high eight games. NOTES: RHP Juan Nicasio (4-2) makes his first career start against the Reds on Tuesday. Homer Bailey (3-4) starts for the Reds. ... Plate umpire Kerwin Danley took a deflected pitch off his facemask in the bottom of the first inning and needed a couple of minutes to recover. He left the game after the second inning, with Lance Barksdale moving from first base to behind the plate. Danley said he had a headache and would likely miss Tuesdays game. ... Reds 2B Brandon Phillips missed his second game after being hit by a pitch from Pittsburghs Tony Watson on Saturday. Baker said Phillips forearm is still very sore. Cesar Izturis started at second.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- A half-million foreign tourists, dozens of heads of state and the attention of the worlds media. China Shoes Outlet . If there were ever a headache for anti-terror forces, its the Olympics.In the aftermath of deadly attacks by the Islamic State group in France and elsewhere, Brazil, which has almost no experience combatting terrorism, is beefing up security for the games that start in Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 5. Plans include doubling the number of security forces on the streets, erecting more checkpoints and working closer with foreign intelligence agencies than Brazilians did in the 2014 World Cup.But will it be enough?Richard Ford, a retired FBI anti-terror expert who lives in Brazil, said that while the government has a robust program to keep athletes and venues safe, he worries that authorities arent taking the threat of a lone-wolf or suicide attack seriously enough.He cited comments by Justice Minister Alexandre de Moraes, who surprised many last week by saying the chances of a terror attack at the games were next to zero and that the bigger concern is street crime. Just a day later, the federal police overseen by Moraes arrested 10 Brazilians allegedly belonging to an amateur cell that had professed allegiance to ISIS over the internet.Its very naive to think that the risks for terrorism are minimal, said Ford, who has worked on security at several Olympic Games. In the last year, the risk of a terrorist attack has gone up exponentially everywhere.Terror attacks have been rare, if horrifying at past Olympics. The most notorious was the 1972 massacre of 11 Israeli athletes and a police officer by a radical Palestinian group in Munich. A bomb planted by an anti-abortion protester killed one and injured 111 at the 1996 Games in Atlanta.But Brazil has a lot of problems that other countries dont have, Ford said. Its sort of a perfect storm for anyone wanting to carry out an attack.South Americas first-ever games have been plagued by a long list of problems, from the Zika epidemic and severe water pollution to slow ticket sales and questions about the readiness of infrastructure built for the games.Compounding the security concerns is the deepest recession in decades, which has forced the cash-strapped Rio state government to slash spending and delay paychecks, and a distracting political crisis that led to the removal of President Dilma Rousseff while she faces an impeachment trial. To make up for the shortfall, the federal government has had to step in with almost $1 billion in emergency funding, much of which will be devoted to security. Extra police are also being deployed from other states.Many of Brazils security holes are ancient and hard to resolve. Long, porous borders it shares with 10 countries are a major conduit for arms and drug smugglers. Obtaining an assault rifle, or explosives, is easy from the criminal gangs that dominate Rios hillside slums. Last year, thieves even managed to steal a truck carrying a ton of dynamite.Harder to explain, though, is the late start on hiring security screeners. An investigation by The Wall Street Journal this month found that Brazils government waited until July 1 to award the contract to recruit and deploy thousands of security guards at Olympic venues, raising questions about whether screening procedures were rigorous for people who will be tasked with monitoring x-ray machines and performing pat-downs. The security contract for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver was awarded 10 months in advance.To be sure, Brazil isnt a newcomer to hosting mega-events. Every year it welcomes millions of foreign visitors during the weeklong Carnival celebration, and the 2014 World Cup went off with no major incidents.But it has almost no experience fighting terrorism. The country has long prided itself on having an enemy-free foreign policy, one that rejects military intervention.Not surprisingly, many Brazilians are on edge as the military buildup at airports and elsewhere become more evident. There have also been several bomb scares. The ritzy beach neighborhood of Leblon shut down streets for several hours last week after discovery of a suspicious bag that turned out to contain only clothes.I never felt like this about terrorism before. I only worried about street crime, said Fernanda Rocha, a pharmacist in Rio. I have no idea how to avoid terrorists if they come.Despite Brazilians easygoing attitude, better suited for a street party than an urban lockdown, Ford said there have been major improvements since the 2014 World Cup. Training exercises with U.S. and other foreign militaries to deal with chemical, biological and nuclear attacks have become more frequent. A joint-intelligence center has been created for the games, allowing intelligence services from around the world to share information and investigate threats as they emerge.Precisely because of Rios reputation for criminality, elite police units are more battle-tested than their counterparts in major U.S. cities.Theyre used to carrying bigger and stronger guns than we are, said Bobby Chacon, a retired FBI agent who makes his home in Rio and spent a year running security at the 2004 Games in Athens.There are expected to be 85,000 military personnel and police fanning out across the city, double the number on the streets in London in 2012. While most will be concentrated at sporting venues, tourist landmarks will also be heavily patrolled.They have the police in place and trained to stop a large-scale, coordinated attack, Chacon said. But theres plenty of opportunities to cause harm, and they shouldnt take anything for granted.--Goodman reported from Bogota, Colombia Fake China Shoes .

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- New Zealand shot putter Valerie Adams commands a place among the most elite companies in world athletics and yet has the misfortune of not even being the most famous athlete in her family.Adams will attempt at the Rio de Janeiro Games to become the first woman to win the same individual track and field event at three consecutive Olympics.Already Adams is one of only nine track and field competitors to have won world championships in youth, junior and senior level, and the only woman to have won four consecutive world championships in the same event.And yet when she gets together with family, Adams accepts that among her 17 brothers and sisters -- the children of her father, Sid -- she is only the second best-known outside her native New Zealand.Her youngest brother, Steven, is center for the Oklahoma City Thunder who -- with his wild hair and lavish moustaches -- was one of the stars of last seasons NBA playoffs. Two other brothers have played professional basketball within New Zealand.Adams rise to her status as probably the best female shot putter in history, has not been without injuries, struggle and disappointment.All those obstacles Ive had to overcome have made me stronger, mentally, physically and emotionally, Adams told New Zealands Fairfax Media. A lot of athletes probably would have retired by now because it was a long stretch coming back, but I didnt want to go out like that.I knew I had at least one more left in me. I wanted to come back and retire on my own terms.While Adams first announced herself by winning the world youth title in 2001 at the age of 16 and further demonstrated her talent by winning the junior title the following year, she has negotiated a career path beset by obstacles and setbacks.Adams was fifth at her first world championships in 2003, when she was 18, and seventh at her first Olympics at Athens in 2004 when she competed only weeks after an appendectomy.The most significant early result of her senior career came in 2005 when she won a world championship bronze medal and had her first taste of competition with her contentious rival, Nadzeya Ostapchhuk.

That rivalry reached its pinnacle at the 2012 London Olympics when Adams, the defending champion, was beaten into second place by Ostapchuk.But the Belarussian subsequently tested positive for a banned steroid and Adams was promoted to first place, receiving her gold medal at a ceremony in Auckland several weeks later and denied a proper celebration at the games.In 2010, Adams split from long-time coach and friend Kirsten Hellier, an unpleasant epidsode in her career which also preceded a winning streak which lasted five years and 56 competitions.When Adams was finally beaten, at a Diamond League meeting in Paris in July 2015, it was because she was making a tentative return from a double injury which threatened to upset her bid to win her third Olympics gold medal.Adams had surgery to repair chronic damage to her right elbow and to remove a bone fragment from her right shoulder -- the most severe of many injuries in her career.She struggled on her return and it seemed her lengthy reign as the worlds best female shot putter was ending. But with typical tenacity Adams has rallied.She won Diamond League meetings in Morocco and Rome this year, was second in Birmingham then won again in Monaco in July, throwing more than 20 meters for the first time since 2014. That helped convince Adams that she is on track for the defense of her Olympics title.Adams will be without her coach Jean Pierre Egger, who injured his knee injury at Monaco, but said the bus continues on the Team Adams journey.After a difficult year with injuries, she feels the onset of her best form.We are getting back our mojo from a couple of years ago and thats something Ive missed a lot, Adams said. Its great to have the feeling Im able to dominate my training as opposed to it dominating me like it did last year. All these small things help with taking a positive outlook to the event coming up.I have goals I want to achieve. People have their expectations but the biggest expectations always come from within.

But that didnt stop him from scoring a career-high 23 points to lead Nebraska past Sacramento State 83-61.Glynn actually tonight had a bad headache, said Nebraska coach Tim Miles. I dont know if it was a migraine or not. But we had to take him out two or three times and get him hydrated and make sure he got medicine. If he can do that in that condition ... hes really good. Glynn is a guy thats a game changer.Watson didnt mention the headache after the game. Rather, he attributed his scoring to aggressive play.I just tried to play aggressive and execute our game plan, Watson said. That was basically what I tried to do, was play aggressive and try to get my teammates open. I had open shots so I took them, that was basically it.Watson kept Nebraska (1-0) in the game in the first half, tying his career-high with 17 points on 7 of 10 shots. The rest of the Huskers were just 9 of 29 in the half, earning them a halftime butt chewing from Miles.Nebraska opened the second period with a 9-2 run, going up 45-35 on Tai Websters driving layup with 17:22 left. That opening spurt was the game changer, said Sacramento State coach Brian Katz.We had a pretty good first half and the separation happened in the first five points of the second half, Katz said. They got five points in transition and went from 36-33 to 41-33, and I thought that was the difference in the game. The Huskers hit 10 of 12 shots in the first eight minutes of the second half, taking a 58-44 lead on Websters jumper with 12:233 remaining. Sebastian Rudy Germany Jersey. I thought the second half was really good, Miles said. But they were pretty good early too. Unfortunately, we missed 12 shots within what, four feet in the first half. I was happy with the team. They came out and did what they had to do to win.Nebraska never trailed, but saw Sacramento State (0-2) tie the game at 31 on Jeff Wus basket with 2:01 left in the first half. Watson responded with a 3-point play to put the Huskers in the lead for good.THE BIG PICTURENebraska: Five of the 10 Huskers who took the floor Sunday were seeing their first action as Huskers. All five came off the bench. They scored just five points combined.Sacramento State: The Hornets hit 48 percent of their shots in the first half to stay close to the Huskers. But Sacramento State struggled from the field in the final 20 minutes, hitting just 9 of 26 attempts and only 2 of 12 from 3-point range.QUOTABLEMiles on Nebraskas first half play: We were just rushing on offense, there was no poise. It was like one, two passes and force your way in there. The reason we missed 12 shots (near the basket) was because they werent very good shots. You cant get an offensive rebound, puke on yourself, then try to put it back in there. It just seemed like we were playing mindless basketball.UP NEXTNebraska hosts the University of Mary, Miless alma mater, Tuesday.Sacramento State will host Antelope Valley Thursday in its home opener.

RALEIGH, N. DeSean Jackson Eagles Jersey .C. -- All those lofty preseason goals -- making the College Football Playoff, winning the Atlantic Coast Conference championship -- are gone for No. 19 Florida State.Still, coach Jimbo Fisher sees a young group determined to finish strong.Deondre Francois threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Travis Rudolph with 3:09 left to help the Seminoles rally to beat North Carolina State 24-20 on Saturday night despite trailing most of the night.Francois threw for 330 yards while Dalvin Cook ran for a touchdown on an otherwise quiet night for the Seminoles (6-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who never led until the final minutes. But they followed their go-ahead with a final stop to secure the win in a stadium where they had lost three of the last five visits.They still believe in each other, believe in what were doing and they believe in this program, Fisher said. And they want to be a part of history and what this program has meant in the past. And I think that carries them today. Theres a lot of pride in this group.The season hasnt gone as expected for FSU, which was ranked No. 4 in the preseason Top 25 but lost in a rout at Louisville, at home to North Carolina on a last-play field goal and then last week in a tight contest against Clemson.Yet Cook said the team was focused on the way you finish as it secured bowl eligibility.This team right here, man, they just accept everything that comes with it, Cook said, adding: Thats why this team right here is going to be a group to remember.While Florida State secured bowl eligibility, the Wolfpack (4-5, 1-4) only continued what has turned into a three-game tailspin since losing at Clemson.N.C. State led 20-10 late in the third but didnt do enough to finish off the Seminoles when there were chances, most notably when Shawn Boone dropped a sure interception in the end zone one play before Rudolphs winning score. The Wolfpack had one last drive, but Ryan Finley overthrew Nyheim Hines on fourth down after the Wolfpack had driven near the red zone with about 2 minutes left.Weve lost a lot of heartbreakers, Hines said. Every week it seems were in a game and we just keep finding ways to lose instead of winning.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida State: The Seminoles had fallen out of contention in the Atlantic Division with last weeks loss, but they showed theyre going to keep fighting in a game where little more than becoming bowl eligible was on the line.N.C. State: Its hard to figure where the Wolfpack goes from here. N.C. State has been unable to find its footing ever since the Clemson loss that started a four-game skid to put its bowl hopes in jeopardy. That frustration was evident when coach Dave Doeren ended his postgame news conference by crumpling up a piece of paper and slamming it into a trash can on the way out.For whatever reason, he said, were not finding the one play that it takes to break a game open like that.POLL IMPLICATIONSFlorida State was flirting with being at risk of falling out of the AP Top 25 . A loss couldve snapped a 79-week run in the poll, second-longest in the country, for a program that hasnt gone into a game unranked since 2011.THE WINNING SCOREFrancois was under pressure when he lofted a ball on the left side to Rudolph, who got a step on a stumbling Boone and made the TD catch.Thats a play we always practice, everyone knew what they were doing, Francois said.BIG NIGHTSHines had a career-best 11 catches for 124 yards for the Wolfpack, while Matt Dayes ran for 104 yards.UP NEXTFlorida State: The Seminoles get a Friday home game against Boston College and look to improve to 7-0 against the Eagles under Fisher.N.C. State: The Wolfpack must win two of the final three games to become bowl eligible, starting with next weeks trip to Syracuse.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-Top25 Wes Hopkins Jersey .
