GLENDALE, Ariz. Josh Bailey Jersey . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. On Sunday, in the blur of an 80-yard touchdown run, he showed them what they missed. The sixth-round draft pick from Clemson, starting because Rashard Mendenhall was out with an injured toe, rushed for 154 yards on 15 carries and the Arizona Cardinals intercepted four of Matt Ryans passes in a 27-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Ellingtons big run, tied for third-longest in Cardinals history, was part of a 21-point second quarter that put Arizona (4-4) in control for good. "I was able to have a little speed burst out there," he said. Blocks from wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd cleared the way. "And with his speed, no ones going to catch him," Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. Fitzgerald caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown, in the process becoming the youngest player -- at 30 years, 57 days -- in NFL history to reach 800 career receptions. Ryan had thrown three interceptions total in the first six games of the season for the Falcons (2-5). Rashad Johnson had two of Arizonas interceptions. "I think we definitely had him confused," said Cardinals rookie Tyrann Mathieu, who had one of the interceptions. "Watching film, he has a tendency when he gets pressure to just throw the ball up there." The Cardinals picked off Ryan five times when the teams played last season. The Falcons were without wide receiver Roddy White for the second week in a row with ankle and hamstring issues. Atlanta also didnt have starting left tackle Sam Baker with a knee injury. Arians traced his teams performance to Mondays practice, an extra workout that followed a Thursday night loss to Seattle. "This game was won on Monday when I asked the team to come out in pads and we had a training camp practice," he said. "A lot of teams would balk at that, but our leadership and our veterans, we had the best practice we had all year and it set the tempo for this game and I think set the tempo for the rest of the season." After throwing his 14th interception of the season, Carson Palmer had two TD passes, 10 yards to Fitzgerald and 15 yards to Floyd. Steven Jackson, back for the first time since being sidelined with a hamstring injury in Week 2, managed just 6 yards on 11 carries. In all, the Cardinals gained 201 yards on the ground to Atlantas 27. With no running game, it was up to Ryan, who completed 34 of a season-high 61 attempts for 301 yards and a touchdown. He was sacked four times. Harry Douglas had 12 catches for 121 yards. Asante Samuels 51st career interception set up Matt Bryants 24-yard field goal that put Atlanta up 3-0. The Cardinals took the kickoff and Palmer threw 51 yards to Teddy Williams, a speedster who had signed with Arizona on Tuesday. Williams, who didnt play college football, played in seven games for Indianapolis last season on special teams and as a defensive back. That set up Palmers 10-yard TD pass to Fitzgerald on the first play of the second quarter and Arizona led 7-3. Atlanta used up 7:17 on a 15-play drive but had to settle for Bryants 30-yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-6. The Falcons inability to get to the end zone on those two drives proved costly. "Those things come back to haunt you," Ryan said, "and they certainly came back to haunt us today." On the first play after Atlantas second field goal, Ellington followed blockers through the left side of the line, then burst outside and raced the length of the field for the touchdown, putting Arizona up 14-6 with 7:25 left in the half. "We had an opportunity to hit the guy in the backfield, and then it popped out," Atlanta coach Larry Smith said. "Once we lost leverage, we werent going to catch that guy. We said that he was going to be a potential game-wrecker going into this ball game." Atlanta went three-and-out on its next possession, and the Cardinals moved downfield again. Palmer threw 20 yards to Fitzgerald and Desmond Trufant was called for a facemask, moving the ball to the 35. Stepfan Taylor broke a pair of tackles on a 15-yard run to the 17. Two plays later, Palmer threw 15 yards to Floyd for the touchdown and Arizona led 21-6 with 1:52 left in the half. Arizona led 27-6 before Ryans 4-yard touchdown pass to Drew Davis with 4:37 left. Notes: In Cardinals history, the only runs longer than Ellingtons 80-yarder were 83 yards by John David Crow in 1958 and Elmer Angsman in 1949. ... A black cat ran across the field just before kickoff. During the national anthem, security personnel corralled the cat and a guard carefully carried it off the field. ... Ex-Falcon John Abraham, who had a sack, left the game in the second half after a blow to the head but said after the game he thought he was all right. ... The previous youngest player to reach 800 catches was Jason Witten at 30 years, 238 days. Brock Nelson Jersey . According to bodog.ca, Cleveland moved up to grab the best odds to win the Larry OBrian trophy at 4-1 on Friday. By comparison, the Miami Heats odds plummeted from 3-1 favourites before LeBron left, to 50-1. Johnny Boychuk Jersey . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season. http://www.nhlislandershockeystore.com/cal-clutterbuck-jersey/ . Down 2-1 after Rick Nash scored on a penalty shot, the Oilers ran off four unanswered goals in the remainder of the second period on the way to a 6-3 victory on Sunday. INAWASHIRO, Japan -- Montreals Justine Dufour-Lapointe is getting used to sharing the podium with her siblings. Two weeks after winning gold in Sochi alongside her sister Chloe -- who won silver at the Games -- Justine again placed first in competition, this time at a moguls World Cup event on Saturday while her other sister, Maxime, placed third. "Its awesome. Im so proud of Maxime," the 19-year-old Justine Dufour-Lapointe said. "Shes achieved so many great things and she really improved her skiing this year. Everyone sees it now and its great. "Whichever sister is next to me, Im always proud and happy for them." Justine Dufour-Lapointe earned 23.41 points on the final run while Maxime took 22.67. American Heather McPhie placed second with 22.99 points. On the mens side, Marc-Antoine Gagnon of Terrebonne, Que., and Mikael Kingsbury of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., won silver and bronze, respectively. American Bradley Wilson took gold while defending two-time Olympic champion Alex Bilodeau of Rosemere, Que., finished fourth. Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, who watched her sisters win Olympic medals while finishing 12th in Sochi, said shes cherishing this moment. "Its my first podium that I share with one of my sisters and hopefully there will be a lot more of these," the 25-year-old said. "I was so happy with my own run. My sisters do what they do and Im always happy for their success." The sisters stayed in Sochi to take in the rest of the Olympic festivities before travelling to Japan. They wont be back iin Canada until later this month for the national championships at the Apex Mountain Resort outside of Penticton, B. John Tavares Jersey. C. Despite her busy schedule following the Olympics, however, Justine Dufour-Lapointe says she doesnt need any help to stay motivated. "Coming here to Japan I was a little bit tired and homesick, but when I get out on the course and see the crowd full of happy people, I have no choice but to enjoy it," she said. "I have this feeling of fun and happiness back after so many emotions (at the Olympic Games) and it felt good." Gagnon, who finished just off the Olympic podium in fourth place, secured silver with 24.25 points in the mens moguls. He scored high on a cork-1080, which he saved for his final jump. "The bottom there was tricky but Im really happy with my run," he said. Kingsbury earned 23.88 points en route to his third-place finish. Though he was first after qualification, he made a mistake on the landing of his 1080 which, he says, cost him some points. "At the end, its another podium and I feel good," Kingsbury said. The 21-year-old won silver in Sochi, behind Bilodeau. "It was one of my dreams just to be at the Olympics and get a medal, but I want to win the gold so thats my motivation," Kingsbury said. "I want to work hard, I want to be the best, I want to win as many (medals) as I can and be the greatest in the history of the sport. "I love the sport and even though I was on the podium at the Olympics, Im still hungry to win."
