#1 doesnt take a lot to move von jin shuiqian 15.11.2019 03:14

SEATTLE - There was no prancing around the field in celebration or loud, passion-filled postgame interview lighting up social media.Richard Sherman slowly jogged off the field with his left arm pinned against his chest, just how it had been for most of the fourth quarter of Sundays NFC championship game.Seattles All-Pro cornerback had his left elbow painfully sandwiched between Green Bays James Starks and pursuing teammate Kam Chancellor on the first play of the fourth quarter.It was a bad hyperextension and Sherman was unable to straighten his arm.We had battled this long. The NFC championship is not the time to go out with an injury, Sherman said. If I can walk and I can still move my feet I think Ill play.Sherman leapt into the spotlight in last seasons NFC championship game against San Francisco, first with his deflected pass that Malcolm Smith intercepted to seal Seattles Super Bowl trip, followed by his loud, shouting TV interview with most of his anger directed at Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree.This NFC title game was far quieter. Sherman intercepted Aaron Rodgers in the end zone on Green Bays opening possession, his second straight post-season game with an interception. But he was mostly silent otherwise, until doubling over in pain after getting the brunt of Chancellors hit on the first play of the fourth quarter.When Seattle was on defence, Sherman played with one arm, using his right hand to still jam and control receivers. Once he got to the sideline, Sherman immediately sat on the bench, head draped, rocking back and forth and seemingly trying to convince himself he could continue.Even Sherman was surprised that Rodgers didnt throw more his direction.I thought once I went down with my elbow the rest of the game I was going to have a lot of action, Sherman said. I think I still had pretty tight coverage on my guy.Only once was Sherman tasked with making an open-field stop. He tackled Jordy Nelson for a 6-yard gain on third down that forced Green Bay to settle for the field goal that forced overtime.Honestly I just kind of threw him around and hoped that I could get enough squeeze to get him down and fortunately my right arm came around. I just wanted to slow him down with my left, Sherman said. It didnt feel great. Im not going to lie.Sherman didnt give any diagnosis, other than to mention ligaments and he was leaving the rest to doctors. But asked about his availability for the Super Bowl, Sherman was certain.I will 100 per cent be able to play, he said.___INJURY WORRIES: Seattle has more injury concerns than just Sherman heading into the Super Bowl. All-Pro safety Earl Thomas suffered a left shoulder injury in the second quarter, but returned before halftime and played the entire second half. Guard J.R. Sweezy also appeared to be slowed by a foot injury in the second half but never left the game.Seattle coach Pete Carroll said he expected everyone to be available in two weeks.___QUIET LACY: Packers running back Eddie Lacy was succinct when asked to describe his feelings after the game.Sad, he said.Lacy finished with 21 carries for 73 yards in Green Bays loss. In a crucial possession in the fourth quarter, quarterback Aaron Rodgers handed off to Lacy three straight times, and Green Bay failed to get the first down.The Packers inability to convert a first down in the fourth quarter cost the team in the end. Lacy said he couldnt tell whether Seattle was using a run blitz on him.I was just out there trying to get as many yards as I could, he said.Lacy led the Packers following the regular season with 1,139 yards rushing and nine touchdowns. He ran for 101 yards in Green Bays 26-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys last weekend.Its tough, he said. For some guys, it lasts longer than others. Next year, we just use it as motivation, so when we get to this point again, well remember what happened today, and hopefully that will help us out.___NO. 1 VS. NO. 1: This was the 12th game since the 1970 merger in which the top-ranked scoring offence (Green Bay) played the stingiest scoring defence (Seattle). The defensive team has won seven times, including the past two: the Seahawks win over Denver in last years Super Bowl, and Sundays 28-22 victory for the NFC title.The other top defensive teams to win were the 1976 Steelers over the Colts in a divisional game; the 1978 Steelers over the Cowboys in the 79 Super Bowl; the 1980 Eagles over the Cowboys in the NFC championship; the 1984 49ers in the 85 Super Bowl against the Dolphins; the 1990 Giants vs. the Bills in the 91 Super Bowl; and the 2013 Seahawks over the Broncos in last Februarys Super Bowl.___GAME STATS: Rodgers had a 102.2 passer rating this season, but just a 55.8 Sunday, going 19 of 34 for 178 yards with one TD and two interceptions. He was sacked just once despite his diminished mobility, and also was plagued by several drops by his receivers.Russell Wilson, whose 36 regular-season wins are the most in any quarterbacks first three seasons, went 14 for 29 for 209 yards, with the four interceptions and one TD — which won the game. He was sacked five times.Marshawn Lynch had 37 yards at halftime, then rushed for 120 in the second half and OT.Seahawks All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner was in on 10 tackles, while Morgan Burnett led Green Bay with 10 tackles, including two sacks. Julius Peppers had 1 1/2 sacks for the Packers.___AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner and AP Sports Writer Anne M.

Griffin scored 13 of his 31 points in the final 7:05 and Dudley got 11 of his 20 points in the third quarter, leading the defending Pacific Division champions to a 112-85 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. "Dud is a shooter.The Indiana Pacers continue at the top of the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings, a spot they havent relinquished since the start of the regular season. Just behind Indiana, the Oklahoma City Thunder, Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers. Moving up this week, the San Antonio Spurs won three straight and, getting a few bodies back from injury, moved from 10 to seven. Further down the list, the Orlando Magic are healthy and went 2-2 last week, which was enough to vault from 29 to 24. Sometimes it doesnt take a lot to move among the bottom-tier teams. Heading the other way, the Los Angeles Cliippers lost three of four and shooting guard J.ddddddddddddJ. Redick is hurt again, so they fall from seven to 10, effectively flipping spots with the Spurs. The Memphis Grizzlies sunk from 12 to 17 after back-to-back losses and, more importantly, an injury to point guard Mike Conley. The Toronto Raptors split their four games last week, but it was enough to hold their ninth-place ranking.
