ealize Fox Is Airing Last Years Daytona 500." Eve

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - John Elway had Terrell Davis to give Denver a different dimension in the late 1990s. Now, Peyton Manning has C.J. Anderson.The undrafted second-year back from Cal has gouged opponents for an average of 164.5 yards from scrimmage since leapfrogging injured running backs Ronnie Hillman and Montee Ball a month ago.And hes provided a toughness and balance that Manning appreciates.I like it. We kept the defence on their heels, Manning said after Anderson ran for a career-best 168 yards in Denvers 29-16 pounding of the Chiefs. That bested the 167-yard performance he had a week earlier against Miami.He has been special, said Manning.When Anderson hasnt had his head buried in his playbook lately, hes been immersed in his cellphone. He had 165 texts to go through Monday morning, including this nugget from his mother: Just keep grinding. Stay humble.Anderson promised her once more that hell never let this sudden success go to his head.Im just playing the same ball Ive been playing since I was 8, he said. Just trying to have 18 (Manning) and the coaching staff trust me a lot more and just trying to do a lot more to help my team win.He did plenty against the Chiefs, gaining 90 yards after contact and helping the Broncos control the clock for nearly 39 minutes, running 79 plays to Kansas Citys 38. That, in turn, kept Denvers defence fresh enough to pile up six sacks and another half-dozen QB knockdowns.Andersons churning style was still paying dividends a day later.Man, I turned on the film and we only got like 21 minutes of watching, cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. Usually its like 40. So, I mean thats a huge difference. And its something we need every week. Time of possession is huge. We dont want to put all of the onus on Peyton. Its a team game this year, a total team this year. So, we want to everybody to make his job a lot easier.Last year, Manning set NFL records by throwing for 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns. But that one-dimensional offence was exposed in the Super Bowl, and the Broncos vowed to become a well-rounded team this season.Enter Anderson, the 5-foot-8, 224-pound wrecking ball whose smarts help him hit the holes fast and whose low centre of gravity keeps him mowing over linebackers and defensive backs once he eludes the linemen.Its just running hard and letting people feel my story, Anderson said.That story is one of growing up in the Country Club Crest neighbourhood in Vallejo, California. Its one of dodging danger on the streets. Its a story of being smart but also the wise guy in high school and having to go to Laney College for two years, where he learned to hit the books with the same passion that he hit the holes.He transferred to Cal, where he would rise from seventh string to second string but make just two starts in two years before being bypassed in the 2013 NFL draft.He signed with the Broncos, he said, because for one, I knew I had the football IQ to play with 18. Two, I felt the running back position wasnt solidified.Anderson gave half of his $12,500 signing bonus to his mom, Neva Craig, who works as an elementary school lunch lady.He rushed for 69 yards in his first preseason game but a knee injury set him back and he ended up rushing just seven times for 38 yards his rookie season.This year, he hit the halfway point with just 82 yards rushing and one catch. Over the last month, he scored three times and gained 658 yards from scrimmage while averaging 5.6 yards a carry and 11.3 yards per catch.Anderson and his two brothers were raised by a single mother who taught her boys to be humble and never forget their roots.My mom says it best: We were never fed with a silver spoon, Anderson said. There were nights where dinner was peanut butter and jelly. I mean, there was so many things that weve been through. Every time Im on the field when I break a tackle or lay the boom, Im just letting them know this is what Ive been through at home and what I did to get here.Notes: Although new K Connor Barth was 5-for-5 on FGs, all eight of his kickoffs were returned, for an average of 25 yards. Asked if hed consider signing a kickoff specialist, John Fox said: Ive done it before. ... You consider everything but you can consider nothing, as well.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Ricardo Quaresma Portugal Jersey .Gasol had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bulls beat the winless Orlando Magic 98-90 on Tuesday night.Jimmy Butler led the Bulls with 21 points and Taj Gibson added 16 for Chicago, which finally pulled away in the final minutes of a game that was tied after three quarters.

Bernardo Silva Jersey . - The Green Bay Packers got back to work on Friday without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Through rain and wrecks, on Daytonas longest day, this was a drought Dale Earnhardt Jr. was determined to end. NASCARs most popular driver won the Daytona 500 on Sunday night for the second time — a decade after his first victory — to snap a 55-race losing streak dating to 2012. The victory ended a streak of futility at Daytona International Speedway, where he finished second in three of the previous four 500s. "Winning this race is the greatest feeling that you could feel in this sport besides accepting the trophy for the championship," said Earnhardt, who climbed from his car in Victory Lane and hugged every member of his Hendrick Motorsports crew. "I didnt know if Id ever get the chance to feel it again and it feels just as good." As he crossed the finish line in his No. 88 Chevrolet, the few who withstood a rain delay of 6 hours, 22 minutes screaming their support, Earnhardt euphorically radioed his crew, saying: "This is better than the first one!" He was met by Rick Hendrick after his victory lap, and the team owner climbed into the drivers window for a ride to Victory Lane. "The world is right right now — Dale Junior just won the Daytona 500," teammate Jeff Gordon said. "Thats a sign its going to be a great season." Rain stopped the race about 45 minutes after it began for a delay of more than six hours. When it resumed, Earnhardt dominated at the track where his father was killed in an accident on the last lap of the 2001 race. He led six times for a race-high 54 laps — all after the rain delay — and seemed to have it under control until things got chaotic near the end. There were 42 lead changes and four multi-car accidents as the field closed in on the checkered flag. An accident with seven laps to go triggered by pole-sitter Austin Dillon, driving the No. 3 — Earnhardts fathers number making its return to the Daytona 500 for the first time since 2001 — set up a final two-lap shootout to the finish. Earnhardt got a great jump past Brad Keselowski on the restart, and had Gordon behind him protecting his bumper. But Denny Hamlin came charging through the field and Earnhardt suddenly had a challenger with one lap to go. Then an accident farther back involving former winners Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray brought out the caution and the win belonged to Earnhardt. "We could fight off battle after battle. We got a little help at the end there from Jeff to get away on the restart," Earnhardt said. "This is amazing. I cant believe this is happening. I never take this for granted, man because it doesnt happen twice, let alone once." Hamlin was second in a Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, followed by Keselowski in a Team Penske Ford. Hendrick took fourth and fifth with Gordon and last years race winner, Jimmie Johnson, in what quickly became a company-wide celebration.dddddddddddd "Hes been knocking on the door of the 500 for a lot of years. He got it done tonight — did an awesome job," said Johnson, who beat Earnhardt to the finish line a year ago. The win means Hendrick already has one of his four drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Under the new win-and-get-in format announced last month, Earnhardt is now eligible to race for the title and can spend the next 25 races preparing for the post-season. "We might be in the Chase — I aint going to worry about that," Earnhardt said from Victory Lane. "Trust me, man, were going to have a blast this year." Rain wreaked havoc on the event for the third time in six years, and this years race was stopped after 38 laps as a strong storm blew into the area. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning in the area and advised people to take shelter, and fans fled from the grandstands. NASCAR rolled out the track drying system Air Titan for several failed attempts over the delay. It was the only on-track activity for more than six hours, but there was plenty of behind-the-scenes fun as drivers desperately tried to stay entertained. David Ragan made a pizza run in his firesuit, Hamlin played basketball, Clint Bowyer answered fans questions on Twitter and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.s crew practiced tornado drills. It hit absurd levels as Fox Sports tried to fill the air time with a replay of the 2013 race that hundreds of thousands did not understand wasnt a live broadcast. Social media exploded with congratulatory tweets for last years winner, Johnson, who posted on his account: "I hear I won the #Daytona500? Haha! I also have friends confused and texting congratulations to me." Fellow drivers had fun with the widespread error, too. "Wait a minute! Im confused, did @JimmieJohnson win or not?" Bowyer tweeted. Plenty of fans on Twitter were confused throughout the replay, tweeting along as if the race was live. Deadspin ran some of them under the headline, "Scores Of Idiots Dont Realize Fox Is Airing Last Years Daytona 500." Even NASCAR couldnt resist jokingly weighing in on the confusion. "Congrats @JimmieJohnson amazing," tweeted Steve ODonnell, NASCARs senior vice-president of racing operations. Piling onto the strange story line, Foxs rain-delayed coverage was sponsored by the movie "Noah," which opens March 28 and stars Russell Crowe as the title character who builds an arc to save creation from a massive flood. When the cars finally got back on track, Earnhardt took off. He had some challenges, particularly from the Roush Fenway Racing duo of Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards, but he managed to break free every time it mattered.
