(SportsNetwork. John Hill Jersey .com) - The Buffalo Bills will return to the friendly confines of Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday when they welcome the upstart Cleveland Browns to town. The Bills, of course, had to move their Week 12 tilt against the New York Jets to Detroit because of heavy snow that hit the Buffalo area last week. When they take the field Sunday it will be just the Bills second game on their home turf in a span of 41 days. The best thing that I said -- and I told this to the players, and Ive been dying to say it: I just want to go home, Buffalo head coach Doug Marrone said. I just want to go home. Its been a long week. Ford Field, though, was very accommodating to the Bills on Monday, as Kyle Orton passed for 230 yards and two touchdowns to help Buffalo rout the Jets, 38-3. We wanted to give the people back in our region a chance to smile a little bit by the way we played, said Marrone. Boobie Dixon rushed for a touchdown and blocked a punt that was recovered in the end zone for another score, helping the Bills keep their playoff hopes alive. Buffalo held the hapless Jets to a season-low 218 total yards and increased its NFL-leading sack total to 46 with seven during its most-lopsided victory since a 38-0 rout of Indianapolis on Sept. 20, 1992. With six wins through 11 games the Bills have a winning record this late in a season for the first time since 2008 and only the third time since they last reached the postseason back in 1999. Still, they enter this tilt one game back of the Browns in the AFC playoff chase. Cleveland, meanwhile, has playoff aspirations of its own following its fourth win in five weeks. The Browns bounced back from a home loss in Houston in Week 11 to narrowly beat Atlanta this past Sunday, as Billy Cundiff kicked a 37- yard field goal as time expired to lift the Browns to a 26-24 win. Cundiffs winner came after the Falcons took the lead on Matt Bryants 53-yard field goal at the other end of the field. But Atlanta left 44 seconds on the clock -- Matt Ryan threw an incomplete pass on third down to stop it before Bryants kick -- and Cleveland had all three of its timeouts. Brian Hoyer, who threw interceptions on back-to-back possessions in the fourth quarter -- including one in the end zone -- completed four passes for 61 yards to set up Cundiffs winning kick. One of the passes was to Josh Gordon for 24 yards. Gordon returned from a 10- game suspension to make eight catches for a game-high 120 yards. Nobody was happier to have Gordon back than Hoyer, who leads the NFL with an average of 14.04 yards per completion this season. He is also tied for second in the league with 46 completions of 20-plus yards. This is as big a team win as we have had, said Browns coach Mike Pettine. There were times we tried to give this one away and fought back and made plays in the end. I told (our players) afterward I couldnt be more proud. Cleveland has won four of its last six matchups with the Bills, including a 37-24 triumph last season. However, the Browns lost the last time they played in Buffalo, but have taken two of the last three there. This will be the seventh meeting in the last eight years between these teams. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Pettine is quite familiar with Buffalos personnel, having served as the Bills defensive coordinator last season. Pettine had a profound impact on the Buffalo defense in his lone season with the club and that has continued this year under Jim Schwartz. Buffalo sits fourth in the league in total defense, surrendering 312.2 yards per game. But, teams have been able to run on this Bills defense, especially lately. After allowing an NFL-low average of 2.79 yards per rush through their first six games, the Bills have surrendered a league-worst 5.25 per carry in their last five. That trend may continue against a very good rushing attack of the Browns that is spearheaded by a pair of rookies in Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Crowell leads all NFL rookies and stands third in the league with seven rushing touchdowns. He stands fourth among rookies with 336 rushing yards, while West is third with 470. Cleveland is coming off one of their better rushing performances of the season after rolling up 162 yards against Atlanta. Still, with Gordon back in the mix look for Hoyer to try and find him early and often. Hoyer, though, may have his work cut out for him against the leagues best pass rush. In fact, the Bills have averaged six sacks in their past three games and Hoyer has struggled under pressure, completing just 55.9- percent of his passes such situations. Both teams, though, will try to establish the run. Buffalo rediscovered their ground attack against a very good Jets defense, as it produced 116 yards and averaged four yards a carry against the league?s fourth-ranked run defense. Cleveland is ranked 29th against the run as their opponents choose to run against them more than any other defense in football (46.7-percent) when it comes to play selection. Both teams have defenses with a penchant for taking the ball away. Buffalo is tied for third in the league in takeaways (22) and Cleveland has 15 takeaways in their last six games, good for most in the league over that span. OVERALL ANALYSIS In all likelihood the loser of this game is probably out of the playoff race. Cleveland seems to be playing way above its heads and Hoyer has started to trend the other way, despite the team winning games. Having Gordon back in the mix should only help. We all know that the Bills get to the quarterback, but the Browns have done a good job of keeping Hoyer upright. Still he has struggled under pressure and how he handles the Bills front seven will ultimately decide this game. Buffalo, on the other hand, is not as good as it looked on Monday. The Bills will have a hard time not only containing Gordon, but may not be able to handle the Browns neophyte backfield. If they can get to Hoyer they will have a chance, but that may be a tall order against a very good Cleveland offensive line.

Kane scored twice as Spurs secured a 3-0 win at White Hart Lane, equalling last seasons haul, and bringing his career league total to 45. The 22-year-old becomes just the fifth Englishman to score 20 goals in consecutive Premier League campaigns, alongside Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Andy Cole and Robbie Fowler.Shearer is at the top of the Premier Leagues all-time scoring list with 260, and England international Kane has revealed he takes inspiration from the former Newcastle captain, and is hoping he can one day better the record.Its a lot of goals and Im still a long way off but Shearer was an idol of mine growing up, to see how many goals he scored was incredible, Kane said. Alan Shearer scored 260 Premier League goals I take it season by season. I dont like looking too far ahead because you never know what can happen. But is it good to aim for? Definitely, theyre the goals you dream of.When youre a younger player, you watch them scoring goals week in and week out, so to be doing that now is a dream come true.Kane is now two goals ahead of Jamie Vardy and three clear of Romelu Lukaku in the battle to be the leagues top scorer for the season. No English player has topped thee scoring charts since Kevin Phillips struck 30 goals for Sunderland in the 1999-2000 season. A. J. Klein Jersey. Harry Kane has overtaken Jamie Vardy as the Premier Leagues top scorer this season While Kane has taken inspiration from Shearer, he is hoping his own continued form can inspire other young English strikers to make the step up to the highest level.If I can be a role model or if I can maybe make another manager play a young player coming through, rather than buy a player, thats incredible, Kane said. Harry Kane opens the scoring against Bournemouth on Sunday I think sometimes managers like to buy players because theyre more experienced from abroad or when theyve got players under their nose that will give everything to the club theyve been brought up with.The more people get chances at a young age, I think youll see more talent coming through as we have done this season.

The Winnipeg Goldeyes have assured themselves a winning record on this behemoth 10-game road trip to start the season. Clint Frazier Jersey . A clutch seventh inning pushed the Goldeyes (6-3) past the Lincoln Saltdogs (4-5) 7-4 Saturday night at Haymarket Park in Lincoln before 4,222 spectators. After the two sides exchanged a pair of runs in the second inning, Lincoln grabbed a 4-2 lead with two runs in the bottom of the fourth. The Goldeyes quickly struck back in the top of the fifth inning to tie the game once again, as left fielder Ray Sadler scored on a ground out by third baseman Josh Mazzola and right fielder Donnie Webb belted the next pitch out of the park for his first home run of the season. For the second straight night, Winnipeg found the winning run in the seventh inning. With Sadler on third and centre fielder Reggie Abercrombie on second, Mazzola singled to score both base runners. "Youre just trying to get the ball in play and find a hole out there," Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said on the Jewel 101 post-game game show of Mazzolas at-bat. "He battled up there and fouled off a couple tough pitches before he got one he could handle. It was a big AB."Mazzola then stole second – his league-leading sixth stolen base of the season – and scored on a single by Webb."Anytime you can take advantage of that and steal that extra base is big," Vermilyea said. "Thats part of our thing this year. Were going to be aggressive on the base paths." After starter Nick Hernandez went five innings for Winnipeg, the Goldeyes bullpen was spectacular in the second half of the game. Southpaw Gabe Aguilar struck out five Saltdogs in 2 2/3 innings of middle relief work. Fellow lefty Brendan Lafferty got the final out of the eighth inning and Chris Kissock pitched the ninth for his second consecutive save in as many nights. The pitching staff combined for a season-high 12 strikeouts. Aguilar picked up the win, while Lincoln reliever Jake Meiers, who was on the hook for the three runs in the seventh inning, suffered the loss. Four Goldeyes had multi-hit nights, while Mazzola had three RBI. The two sides will meet in the series finale Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. Lefty Chris Salamida will look for his first win of the season against Nick Green, who will make his first start of the season for Lincoln. The Goldeyes return home on Monday for their home opener against the Sioux City Explorers. Joe Torre Jersey . Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. Giancarlo Stanton Jersey . LOUIS -- To stay a step ahead of goaltenders, T.The Rochester Knighthawks agreed to terms on a three-year extension with Cory Vitarelli through the 2016 season. "It feels great (to re-sign with Rochester)," Vitarelli said. "Ive had two great years so far and weve been very successful, so its great to be part of the team again." Since joining the Knighthawks late in the 2011 season, Vitarelli is tied with veteran forward Mike Accursi for second in goals scored with 61, and has finished second only to Cody Jamieson with 54 goals over the past two seasons. "Hes a guy that can get through the middle. He works extremely hhard to get his teammates open, and at the same time, has that ability to put the ball in the net himself," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. Elston Howard Jersey . Despite his success, Vitarellis name often goes unmentioned, and he has rightfully earned the teams Unsung Hero Award in 2012 and 2013. "I think it benefits me as a guy who goes under the radar and is able to chip in here and there with goals that maybe dont get quite as much recognition," Vitarelli said. "Were a unit up there, and to be successful, we all need to sort of chip in at different times." ' ' '
