    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Calvin Munson Jersey . -- Harry Douglas is correct in his argument that his low hit on Chris Harris Jr. is permissible. Hes mistaken in his contention it was clean.Tennessees journeyman wide receiver -- known now in Denver as the Titans goon -- was blocking toward his opponents goal line, not away from the ball. And the play was still live, albeit nowhere near where Harris was standing.So, legal, yes.But also dirty.I have never had a player try to end my career like that, Harris said. That was dirty and he should be fined. Thats not football.The one facing a fine is Aqib Talib, who jumped on Douglas on the next play, scuffling around in what quickly became a scrum on the Tennessee sideline. Talib lost his helmet and was penalized for unnecessary roughness when an ejection might have been in order.So, Talib stayed in the game and Harris returned and played the rest of the way, which Denver lost 13-10, but Talib was just as angry after the game .It was a dirty play by a sorry player, Talib said, adding they have the same agent, so when I see his ass in Atlanta, Im going to beat his ass.Talib said Monday hed moved on to the Patriots upcoming visit, but he didnt back off having his teammates back.Were going to play for each other, Talib said. Thats what we do every day. Thats why we play the game. We play for our checks and we play because we love to be around each other.Broncos coach Gary Kubiak watched the cringe-worthy play on film and said, First off, Im just so thankful Chris is OK. ... I disagree with the play. But Ill take my opinion to the league and deal with it from that standpoint.Kubiak said he understood Talibs reaction.First off, weve got a strong team. Weve got each others back. Youd better have each others back in this business, in what we do, Kubiak said. But you also got to be smart and you cant hurt your team.Douglas decision to take out Harris right knee was one of the worst moves of Week 14.Other calls backfired spectacularly, like San Francisco coach Chip Kellys decision to go on fourth-and-2 at the Jets 37 in overtime, only to watch Carlos Hyde -- who had run for a career-high 193 yards -- get stuffed. The Jets then drove for the winning score.Kelly said the 49ers were 3 yards shy of kicker Phil Dawsons range -- hed already missed two field goals -- and he didnt want to punt.I didnt want to give the ball back to them, Kelly said. I thought with a yard that we had a shot the way Carlos was running.Colts tight end Dwayne Allen had a double-whammy, failing to stop Jadeveon Clowney from a sack-strip of Andrew Luck at the Houston 5-yard-line, then compounding the problem by trying to pick up the ball instead of pouncing on it like the Texans did.The NFL saved face by reversing itself and allowing the Browns and Titans, who were off last week for the leagues My Cleats, My Cause campaign, to go ahead and wear their customized cleats in Week 14.Speaking of cleats, if Harris doesnt pull his right leg back just after contact, his knee, and maybe his career, gets cratered.Douglas, a ninth-year pro who had one catch for 10 yards Sunday, vigorously defended his low block.First of all, thats a clean play, Douglas argued. It was a run play with me and him looking at each other and I cut blocked him.Just because what he did was legal doesnt mean it was clean, suggested NFL Network analyst Steve Mariucci.When the corners lined up in front of you, you can block them down there, Mariucci said. It just appeared to be kind of a cheap shot at the knee and the way it hit, it couldve affected Harris season and career.Thats a cheap shot, NBC analyst Rodney Harrison said, mincing no words. And I understand why Aqib Talib is so frustrated right now. But in the same respect, you have to keep your poise.Harris, who missed Super Bowl 48 with a torn ACL in his left knee, stayed down for a couple of minutes and slowly walked off the field. He said afterward he was sore and in pain.Harris sent a series of tweets Sunday night:Thank God for covering me cuz I thought my knee was gone.Cant get open so lets just take 25 out of the game.Douglas set his Twitter account to private after the game.Von Miller said even if Douglas actions were within the rules, they broke the unwritten rule of risking another mans livelihood. Miller pointed to the NBA as a league where players look out for one another, like when they forego a hard foul on a dunk.Theyre playing hard and the superstars are going to be superstars, but theyre always taking care of each other, Miller said. Theres never crazy, hard fouls that can lead to somebody getting hurt. That stuff happens in basketball, but its never intentional.In basketball, they take care of each other. Football is a more physical sport. But weve got to start doing that. Weve got to take care of each other to continue to make our game great.---For more NFL coverage: and NFL Writer Teresa M.

Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. Davis Webb Jersey .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina center Cory Helms learned quickly not to play Madden with a young quarterback like Jake Bentley.They start reading the defenses and making plays, Helms said with a smile. They want to win.The Gamecocks (3-4, 1-4 Southeastern Conference) hope their latest freshman quarterback brings that video-game attitude to the field each week. Bentley made his college debut last week, getting the call to start and leading South Carolina to a 34-28 victory over UMass last Saturday.Bentleys task gets considerably tougher this week when South Carolina faces No. 18 Tennessee (5-2, 2-2) on Saturday night.Bentley gave the Gamecocks a boost from almost the moment he stepped behind center. He led them to a 27-7 lead, including TD passes of 16 yards to K.C. Crosby and 24-yards to Bryan Edwards -- just the second time this season South Carolina had connected for more than one scoring throw in a game.Bentley finished with 201 yards and two touchdowns, sparking an offense that was last in Football Bowl Subdivision scoring average and had not scored more than 20 points in any of its first six games.It really gave everybody a lift, tight Hayden Hurst said. Hes very poised and confident.Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp and quarterbacks coach Kurt Roper, the teams co-offensive coordinator, have decided to roll with their two freshmen quarterbacks the rest of the season. Bentley, at 6-3 and 223 pounds, has a live arm and a quick release. Fellow freshman Brandon McIlwain, who started three of the first six games, is more adept at running zone read schemes and South Carolina brought him in on several goal line situations.I just feel like right now, from an ability standpoint, (Bentley and McIlwain) give us the best opportunity, and theyre just going to keep getting better, Muschamp said. Both of them do things equally well, and well continue to rep that way.Muschamp said Bentley has kept a workmanlike approach despite his first-game success. Bentley told Muschamp at practice he had watched about 2 1-2 hours of Tennessee film. Sterling Shepard Jersey. He knows how to prepare the right way, the coach said.Tailback A.J. Turner said Bentley allows the Gamecocks to take more downfield chances, which in turn opens up room for their running backs. No surprise that South Carolina had its most productive game on the ground this season with 194 yards.Thats something that Jake did for us, Turner said.Bentley had offers from Alabama, Clemson, LSU and Nebraska among others. He planned to spend another season in high school before his father, Bobby, became Muschamps running backs coach last December. The younger Bentley chose to speed up the process, graduating early and joining the Gamecocks this summer.Muschamp expects Bentleys progress to continue throughout the season. Muschamp does not allow Bentley or other South Carolina freshmen to speak to the media.Tennessee coach Butch Jones thought Bentley managed the offense like a veteran in his first start.Vols cornerback Emmanuel Moseley believes Bentleys inexperience wont matter come Saturday.Even though he is supposed to be a senior (in high school) right now it doesnt matter, Mosely said. ?He went out there and did a great job. He got his team the win.The UMass win left all South Carolina players feeling good early in the week. Left tackle Mason Zandi said the team had a little extra spirit on the practice field as it prepped for Tennessee -- and he knows a lot of that is because of Bentleys performance.Jakes got a little bit of swagger. You come into your first start, you throw two impressive touchdowns, definitely no mistakes, said Zandi, a senior. Thats a big deal for a kid whos supposed to be a senior in high school.---AP Sports Writer Steve Megargee from Knoxville, Tennessee contributed to this report.---Online:More AP college football: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale Authentic Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
