FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Miguel Cabrera Tigers Jersey . - There werent too many bright spots for the New England Patriots defence during a 27-point blowout to Kansas City.The fact that it occurred in a Monday night game is one small positive.Kansas Citys 41-14 dismantling of the Patriots in front of a national audience left New England with a short week to prepare for its next opponent and mere hours to forget one of the more embarrassing losses in franchise history before shifting attention to the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals.It was a terrible loss for us, but at the same time, it was a short week, we had to move on, Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis said. Its not like it was Sunday and then we had an extra day to look at the film and had a whole day to really think about it. We had to move on fast to Cincinnati.So the Chiefs, officially, are in New Englands rearview mirror. Running back Jamaal Charles three touchdowns are a thing of the past. Quarterback Alex Smith missing on just six passes while dissecting New Englands secondary for 248 yards and three scores is a distant memory.The Bengals (3-0), one of only two undefeated teams in the NFL, are foremost in the minds of the Patriots.But their poor performance against Kansas City isnt entirely a lost cause. New Englands defence knows precisely what went wrong, and is looking to build off those mistakes.When you cant pinpoint what happened, you cant make any corrections from that, Pro Bowl nose tackle Vince Wilfork said. For the most part, we see a lot of things that we do that we have no business doing; that we can fix. Its fixable. We need to fix it to get better.Thats what good football teams do, they fix things and move forward. Thats where were at; were fixing them and were moving forward, and hopefully we fix them before Sunday.The likely return of suspended cornerback Brandon Browner will surely help, if only to contain the Bengals big receiversThe Patriots (2-2) signed the hard-hitting Pro Bowler during the off-season despite knowing he would miss the first four games of the season due to violating the leagues substance abuse policy.Were excited to have him back. Its been too long, Revis said. He brings a lot of physicality to our defence and were looking forward to that, for him to be aggressive.Browner probably will have to shake off some rust after missing the first four weeks of practice, but his height alone should be enough to counter that of Cincinnati wide receivers A.J. Green, who stands 6-foot-4, and the 6-2 Mohamed Sanu.At 6-4, 221 pounds, Browner looks more like a receiver or linebacker than a member of the secondary.I dont care who guys have at receiver, having Brandon out there will be nice, safety Devin McCourty said. Hes a bigger guy, a physical guy who lets his presence be known as soon as he steps on the field.Itll be a big plus having him out there. Hes a veteran football player whos been in tough situations, so hell be ready to go when hes out there.New England will need all the help it can get to slow down Green, who has been quarterback Andy Daltons top weapon and deep threat since the two entered the league together in 2011.Despite being hampered by an early season toe injury, Green has hauled in 12 catches for 233 yards and a touchdown, and he is coming off the best season of his four-year career.The three-time Pro Bowler had 98 receptions for 1,426 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, and is a threat to score nearly every time he touches the ball.A.J. Green is one of the best receivers in the league, Revis said. Ive got a lot of respect for him.New Englands defence had garnered plenty of early season respect, too, although that perception may have swayed slightly following the debacle against the Chiefs.That was a long time ago to Revis, though.It was an embarrassment, yes it was, but at the same time, youve got to put it in the past, he said. Weve got 12 more games left. If we can focus on those 12 more games, we can do what we need to do in those 12 games. Its a 12-game season. Francisco Rodriguez Tigers Jersey . -- Kyrie Irvings last-minute 3-pointer helped seal another victory for Cleveland -- and the Cavaliers longest winning streak since LeBron James left. J. D. Martinez Jersey . Ferrer will play Mikhail Youzhny on Sunday after he defeated Dmitry Tursunov 6-2, 6-4 in an all-Russian semifinal. "Youzhny is a good player," Ferrer said. http://www.baseballtigersproshop.com/lance-parrish-tigers-jersey/ . - Mike Magee converted two penalty kicks in a 10-minute span of the first half and the Chicago Fire beat Sporting Kansas City 2-1 on Sunday.MINNEAPOLIS -- An unexpectedly strong performance in the middle gave the Minnesota Timberwolves a big lift Sunday night. Kevin Love had his usual solid performance with 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists to lead the Timberwolves to a 104-102 victory over the Sacramento Kings. But it was the other double-double that was unexpected. In his first career start, rookie Gorgui Dieng had his first career double-double with season highs in points (12) and rebounds (11) for Minnesota. He also had five blocks. "Were a man short right now and Gorgui, he just came in and did what we needed him to do and thats just rebound and alter shots at the basket," said Kevin Martin, who had 31 points Dieng, the 21st pick in last summers draft, made his first career start in place of Nikola Pekovic, who sat out with soreness in his right ankle. "I was prepared if I get minutes or not I was just going to keep working," Dieng said. "I think you should work more when you dont play a lot. I didnt get minutes. I never got frustrated. Just keep working and I know my time will come one day." A former Timberwolves player saw Diengs potential firsthand. "I told him since the first day he got here that its your job to block shots. You got drafted to rebound and block shots. His post games getting better as well. If he sticks with that hes going to be a good player in this league," said Derrick Williams, who scored 26 points and had 11 rebounds off the bench for Sacramento. Williams knows about being a young player in Minnesota. The second-overall pick in the 2011 Draft, Williams had two disappointing seasons with the Timberwolves before being traded to Sacramento on Nov. 26 for Luc Mbah a Moute, who has been a non-factor for Minnesota. "I think anybody who gets traded wants to play good against the team that traded them," he said. "I just wanted to be aggressive because (DeMarcus) Cousins was out and I was the next man up. Coach wants me to be aggressive and thats what I did tonight." Cousins, the Kings starting centre, misseed the game with right knee tendinitis. Alan Trammell Jersey. He was replaced by Aaron Gray, who hadnt seen action since Feb. 25. Gray finished with four points in 20 minutes. "Its a testament to Aarons work ethic and his positive attitude for him to be ready to play tonight after not playing in so many games," coach Michael Malone said. "It was good to see him out there." Love hit 3 of 6 3-pointers, including one with 1:07 to play to give Minnesota a 97-95 lead and the Timberwolves hung on to win for the 33rd time, their most wins since 2005-06. Sacramentos Isaiah Thomas had 27 points, including two 3-pointers in the final 15 seconds to keep it close. Thomas scored from beyond the arc with 13.2 seconds left to get the Kings within two. After Martin made two free throws to make it 102-98 with 12.1 seconds left, Thomas answered with another 3-pointer before Martin made two more free throws with 5.7 seconds left. It was the second straight night the Kings couldnt close out a game, leaving them with a 2-5 record on a season-long seven-game road trip. They were outscored by six points in the fourth quarter and lost 94-87 in Chicago Saturday. "We were in there; we had a chance to win, but we just couldnt capitalize," Thomas said. Down 29-19 late in the first quarter, Williams provided a spark by scoring 10 straight points off the bench to get the Kings within three by quarters end. Williams had six more in the second quarter as the Kings took a 54-53 halftime lead. NOTES: Sacramento has officially been eliminated from playoff contention. ...
