. Pittsburgh will need to keep the pressure o

The Edmonton Oilers agreed to terms with centre Anton Lander on a one-year contract extension on Monday. Beto Jersey . The 23-year-old Lander split the season between the Oilers and their American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons. He appeared in 27 games with the Oilers, posting one assist and four penalty minutes. Last season, he captained the Oklahoma City Barons, recording 52 points, 30 penalty minutes and a plus seven rating in 53 games. His 52 points ranked second on the team, as well as ranking second in assists and power play goals. He also tallied two points for the Barons in three playoff games. The native of Sweden has registered eight points and 18 penalty minutes in 94 career NHL games. Lander was selected by Edmonton in the second round, 40th overall in the 2009 NHL Draft. Ricardo Pereira Portugal Jersey . The 40-year-old midfielder was put in charge on Tuesday when David Moyes reign ended after 10 months with the defending champions in seventh place in the English Premier League. Ruben Dias Jersey . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. http://www.soccerportugalnationalshop.u … al-Jersey/ .J. -- Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch deservedly draw the attention for what theyve done in getting the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Mike Tomlin isnt interested in progress reports. The final grade is all that matters to the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach. So forgive Tomlin if hes not ready to assess his team or the division it plays in as the season reaches its midway point.Its easy to write and tell stories at the turn, Im not going to, he said.The way Tomlin figures it, if the AFC North is the toughest division in the NFL itll play out over the next two months. By then the fact Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Baltimore and Cleveland are all over .500 heading into November may be long forgotten.I think if we are (the best) its going to be revealed in the second half of the season, he said.One thing is for certain, however. After a sluggish start the Steelers are in the mix. Pittsburgh (5-3) finally has momentum heading into Sundays rematch with the rival Ravens (5-3). The Steelers have won two straight for the first time all season and looked every bit the role of contender while dismantling Indianapolis 51-34 last weekend.Tomlin praised the offensive line, particularly right tackle Mike Adams, for giving quarterback Ben Roethlisberger all the time necessary to pass for a club record 522 yards passing and six touchdowns. Adams filled in capably with starter Marcus Gilbert out with a concussion, helping Roethlisberger get off 49 attempts without getting sacked once.Though Gilbert will be back in the lineup barring a setback this week, Tomlins assessment of Adams play against the Colts might as well double as a status report on a team that spent the first half of the year searching for consistency as it flip-flopped wins and losses regardless of who was on the other side of the field.I thought he was a finisher, Tomlin said of Adams. I just liked his performance. A big arrow pointed up relative to some of his other performances.Yet the Steelers are wary of how quickly the arrow can change direction. They felt pretty good about themselves after a road victory at Carolina in Week 3 then followed it up with a still hard to fathom home loss to Tampa Bay.Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger believes he leads one of the most talented offences in the league. The tricky part is trying to get it to perform that way on a weekly basis. After some troubling growing pains, the Steelers appear ready to hit their stride.While Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and LeVeeon Bell give Pittsburgh one of the best quarterback/wide receiver/running back combinations in the NFL, its the development of the players around them that has keyed the recent surge. Goncalo Guedes Jersey. Rookie receiver Martavis Bryant needed six weeks to earn a spot on the active roster. The 6-foot-4 fourth-round pick has quickly emerged as a valuable target, catching three touchdowns in his first two games. Veteran Lance Moore languished on the depth chart behind Justin Brown but has flourished since moving into the slot position he felt he deserved to hold all along. Second-year wideout Markus Wheaton emerged from a lengthy slump to catch an 18-yard scoring pass from Roethlisberger against Indianapolis that jolted the Steelers to lifeOut of the entire group, Bell might be the best pass catcher on the team not named Brown. He already has 42 receptions at the midway pointWe know what were capable of, Bell said. We showed everybody. Now we have to go out there and put performance on top of performance.Its what Tomlin calls stacking wins. How high the pile becomes will depend on if the offence can finish drives the way it did against Indianapolis — when five of six red zone possessions ended in touchdowns — and if the defence can create even a little bit of chaos.That hasnt happened with any regularity so far, though there were flashes against the Colts. The Steelers sacked Andrew Luck twice and sent him to the turf so often Colts pristine No. 12 white jersey was a decidedly darker shade by games end. Pittsburgh will need to keep the pressure on to compensate for a secondary that struggles to stay in front of anyone.Cortez Allens rise to the role of shutdown corner has come to an abrupt stop. Luck picked on Allen repeatedly, with most of the passes resulting in big plays or penalties. Its not what the Steelers had in mind when they signed Allen to a five-year extension on the eve of the season opener. While Tomlin stresses he has confidence Allen can bounce back, Allen will need a good week of practice just to start against the Ravens.Often times hes in position ... but positioning is just an element of it, Tomlin said. Youve got to finish.A message sure to resonate throughout a locker room eager for a return to the post-season after a two-year absence.___Online:http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Jerseys NFL China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL White Jerseys ' ' '
