                                      PHILADELPHIA -- When Carson Wentz had the Philadelphia Eagles 17 yards from victory in the final minute, it didnt matter the team was down to one running back, a fourth-string right tackle and third long snapper. Air Max 97 Rosa Outlet .They didnt get it done and nobody was making excuses.We lost. Thats what really matters, Wentz said. We didnt finish at the end. We had a chance to finish the game and win it on offense and we didnt do that.Kirk Cousins rallied the Redskins to a 27-22 win over the Eagles on Sunday, sending Philadelphia to its fourth straight loss and keeping Washington in the playoff mix.It was a familiar way to lose a game for the Eagles (5-8). One play wouldve changed the outcome in five of their eight losses.Its frustrating, but we just have to keep learning from it and keep growing as a team, Wentz said.Chris Thompson had a 25-yard TD run with 1:53 remaining and Ryan Kerrigan sacked Wentz to force a fumble in the red zone to secure the win for the Redskins (7-5-1).Im just glad we were able to make a play, Redskins defensive end Chris Baker said.Cousins threw two TD passes, including an 80-yard toss to DeSean Jackson and 15-yarder to Pierre Garcon .But Leodis McKelvin intercepted Cousins and returned it 29 yards for a TD early in the fourth quarter to get Philadelphia back in it.Heres some things we learned in Washingtons fifth straight win over Philadelphia:D-JAX STILL HAS ITJackson had three catches for 102 yards, the third time hes had more than 100 yards in five games against his former team. The speedy receiver hasnt had the same success in Washington that he did in Philadelphia when he went to three Pro Bowls between 2008-13, but hes still one of the top playmakers in the league.I wish I could do it every game, no matter which team Im playing against, he said. Im just here to do my job. My job is to run fast and catch balls whether its 2 yards or 60. I dont call the plays.NO. 91 SIGHTINGFletcher Cox got his first sack since Oct. 9 and Philadelphias first in three games when he brought down Cousins for a 1-yard loss in the second quarter. Cox combined with Bennie Logan for another sack in the second half. The Eagles had 20 sacks in the first six games and have only eight in the past seven games.SNAP THISNobody cares about the long snapper until he gets hurt. The Eagles lost long snapper Jon Dorenbos to a right wrist injury early in the second half. Backup Brent Celek made a poor snap on a 50-yard field goal attempt and then suffered a stinger, leaving Trey Burton to handle the tough task. Holder Donnie Jones reached up to catch Burtons high snap and Caleb Sturgis took a stutter-step before kicking a 41-yard field goal through the uprights to give the Eagles a 22-21 lead.ANOTHER PLAYMAKERFour Redskins scored TDs: Jackson, Garcon, Thompson and Rob Kelley. The leagues No. 2-ranked offense only had the ball 23:22 and was held to 334 total yards, but made the most out of few opportunities. Thompson is often overlooked, but he took a pitch and ran in for the winning score in a clutch spot. He admitted afterward he shouldve gone down at the 1 so the Redskins could run down the clock and kick the go-ahead field goal at the end.I probably should have taken a knee, but what if the field goal gets blocked or the snap gets bobbled? Thompson said.NORMANS WEEKRedskins CB Josh Norman finally gets a chance to play the game hes waited for all season. The Redskins host the Carolina Panthers next Monday night. Norman was released by the Panthers after rescinded the franchise tag.They know what time it is, Norman said of his former team.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi Balenciaga x Nike Air Max 97 .

Arsenal failed to take full advantage of its main rivals stumbles on Saturday as substitute Gerard Deulofeu levelled with a hard shot from a tight angle in the 84th minute to give Everton a deserved point.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- After struggling for much of his Olympic singles quarterfinal against a Brazilian opponent backed by a raucous home crowd, Rafael Nadal finally seized control by using a big backhand to set up an easy putaway at the net for a third-set service break.Perhaps wary of drawing the ire of all of those flag-waving fans, Nadal offered a rather muted reaction -- none of the leaps or uppercuts or yells of Vamos! hed displayed earlier at the Rio de Janeiro Games.Nadal moved into the semifinals as he bids to add a second singles gold to the one he earned for Spain in 2008, handling a hostile environment and coming back to beat 54th-ranked Thomaz Bellucci 2-6, 6-4, 6-2 on Friday. And then he went back out on court and teamed with Marc Lopez to win the mens doubles title, edging Florin Mergea and Horia Tecau of Romania 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 in that final.I dont even know how things are going so well, said Nadal, who missed the past 2+ months with an injured left wrist, because I didnt do any preparation for the tournament.Andy Murray, the defending champion from Britain, also is trying to become the first tennis player with a pair of Olympic singles titles. He found himself in an even tenser, tighter match, before emerging to edge Steve Johnson of the United States 6-0, 4-6, 7-6 (2).Close to going out, Murray said after winning despite trailing by a break in the third set for the second match in a row. Sometimes that can work in your favor as the tournament goes on. You start to feel a little bit better. You loosen up a little bit.On Saturday, Nadal will play 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, while Murray faces Kei Nishikori of Japan.Del Potro, who knocked out No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the first round, beat Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 7-5, 7-6 (4). Nishikori got past Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-6 (6).The womens final is also Saturday, when Monica Puig attempts to win Puerto Ricos first gold medal in any sport in Olympic history. She beat two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, and will face Angelique Kerber of Germany, the Australian Open champion who defeated Madison Keys of the U.S. 6-3, 7-5. Kvitova meets Keys for thhe bronze. Air Max 97 Italy Gold. This Olympics isnt about me, the 34th-ranked Puig said. Its about Puerto Rico, and I know how bad they want this.No matter what happens in his singles semifinal, Nadal will get to leave Rio with a medal from doubles. Not bad for a guy who missed the London Games four years ago because of a knee injury, then came to Brazil with a wrist he says is not fully healed.Maybe hes not (enjoying) the best time of his career, Bellucci said, but hes playing really well.Nadal is a former No. 1 and owns 14 Grand Slam titles. Bellucci, who lives in Sao Paulo, is also a lefty, but thats pretty much where the similarities end.He reached a career-best ranking of 21st in 2010, not long after making his only trip to the fourth round of a major tournament. He arrived at his home Olympics with an 11-18 record in 2016 -- and a career losing mark, too.It was Nadal who started shakily, though, committing 10 unforced errors and generating only two winners in the opening set. He was broken twice and never earned so much as a single break chance.Nadal cleaned things up in the second, though, and while he did get broken again while serving for it at 5-3, he broke right back with a running cross-court forehand passing winner to force a third.Following a shanked forehand early in the final set, Nadal kicked his foot against the court. At the time, it appeared to be a sign of frustration. But at the ensuing changeover, Nadal removed his left shoe so a trainer could tape up the little toe on that foot.Right after that lengthy break, Nadal broke at love to go ahead 3-1, and that was pretty much that.Still, Bellucci enjoyed the atmosphere. Fans cheered for Nadals miscues -- even faults, generally considered a no-no in tennis -- and roared for Belluccis best shots as if victory and defeat hung in the balance with each point.When their guy would grab a game, they would sing, soccer-style, Ole, ole, ole, ole! Tho-maz! Tho-maz!They reprised that chorus even after he lost.It was, Bellucci said, amazing for me.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich ' ' '
