      lot of grit our boys

      THEY SAID IT: Its been a happy hunting ground the last two years, a couple of incredible wins and tonight is worth about 10 (wins) I think. Mark Clayton Jersey . They showed a lot of grit our boys ... it was just a brilliant victory. - Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge after his sides stunning come-from-behind win over Sydney at the SCG.STATS THAT MATTER: 106 - the number of tackles laid by Port Adelaide in their 38-point win over Richmond. The Power effectively ended the Tigers finals chances at Adelaide Oval and it was on the back of their willingness to tackle.MAN OF THE ROUND: There were plenty of players who touched the ball more but its hard to argue against Western Bulldogs comeback king Jason Johannisen. In his first game since round four due to a severe hamstring injury, the speedy midfielder iced a memorable win for the Dogs with a nerves-of-steel set shot in the dying seconds against the Swans at the SCG.KEY MOMENT: Youd have to have a heart of stone not to be a little bit taken with the romance of a third generation of Silvagnis taking the field for Carlton. When Jack, son of Stephen and grandson of Sergio, broke through the banner in the long sleeves on Saturday night at the MCG a little bit of history was made. He showed encouraging signs with 15 possessions in a scrappy 12-point loss to Collingwood.TALKING POINT: Who wants a top-four spot? Adelaides hard-fought win over Melbourne moved them from eighth to fifth spot, with the Crows now one of a staggering six teams with 10-4 records. Hawthorn, a game clear on top, and West Coast, a game adrift in eighth, are the bookends for an extraordinary top eight, which promises an enthralling run to the finals.TRIBUNAL WATCH: Essendon veteran Mark Jamar looks set for a stint on the sidelines after he caught West Coast defender Jeremy McGovern in the face with a swinging elbow. David Zaharakis thump to the stomach of Jackson Nelson in the same game will also be looked at. Carltons Dale Thomas faces a nervous wait to see how the match review panel assesses his high bump on Collingwoods James Aish.KEY INJURIES: M Jamar (Ess, hamstring), M Leuenberger (Ess, knee), P McCartin (St K, concussion), M Rosa (GC, hamstring), J Weitering (Car, ankle), C Byrne (Car, knee).WHATS NEXT: The AFLs meandering run of bye weeks ends with a bang, with some mouthwatering match-ups in a full slate of games. Geelong host Sydney at Simonds Stadium on Friday night and North Melbourne travel to Perth to take on the Eagles on Sunday in a pair of games that will help shape the top four. Willis McGahee Jersey . Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. Chris Wormley Jersey . But Bourque, who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. http://www.customravensjersey.com/custom-patrick-ricard-jersey-large-2153d.html . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. MIAMI -- The Miami Dolphins begin an NFL-record homestand hoping to play better at home.Tennessee visits Sunday, the first of four consecutive games at Hard Rock Stadium for the Dolphins. Theres a bye after the third game, meaning Miami wont play on the road again until Nov. 13.Thats 46 days between away games, a record, and an ideal time for a turnaround.But the Dolphins havent exactly dominated in recent years at home, going 12-12 since 2013. That includes an overtime victory against woeful Cleveland in Week 3 for the Dolphins lone win this season. Theyre 0-3 on the road.Obviously 17-0 is out the window, receiver Jarvis Landry said. Yes, we have four home games and a bye mixed up in there somewhere. But were not looking ahead; were not looking back. Were looking at the Tennessee Titans.Here are things to know about the matchup between 1/3 teams:PLAYING AT HOME: Hurricane Matthew raised concerns about the NFL being forced to move the game to Nashville. But first-year Miami coach Adam Gase is eager to create a home-field advantage and ratchet up the atmosphere for fans who havent had a lot to cheer about during the Dolphins seven-season playoff drought.The home opener against Cleveland was a sellout, but many fans fled for the exits during the latter stages of an ugly win.I felt like last game the crowd was great, Gase said. They were very energetic, especially when our defense was on the field. It got loud quite a bit. We have to put out a better product than we showed the last time. Thats what this season is going to be about for us. Weve got to keep getting better every week. If we do that, I think that the crowd will keep getting louder and louder and louder.MIAMI FRONT FOUR: The Dolphins pass rush was expected to be a strength, but theyre tied for ninth with 10 sacks, as former Pro Bowl ends Mario Williams and Cameron Wake have only one sack apiece.Miami has forced just one interception while allowing a passer rating of 98.4, which is ninth worst. Opponents have countered the rush with lots of three-step drops.Weve got to try to find a way to stop the quick throws -- tighter coverage, or us getting our hands up, or whatever, Williamms said. Ravens Jerseys China. Weve got to figure something out, because it is more often than not quick passes so far.Quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Titans are likely to try the same approach, mindful of the importance in neutralizing a group that also includes Pro Bowl tackle Ndamukong Suh.Those guys, when theyre in a one-on-one matchup, thats when they make their money, Titans center Ben Jones said. Theyve got five good rushers. Suh, Wake, Mario -- they can get after the passer any time. You have to know where they are and get up on them.RUN DEMARCO RUN: Titans running back DeMarco Murray is looking like the player who led the NFL with 1,845 yards rushing in 2014 with Dallas. Murray already has 340 yards rushing and 496 yards from scrimmage, and his five total touchdowns tie him for second in the NFL. Murray also has 25 first downs, second only to Dallas running back Ezekial Elliott.Combined with Mariota, thats why the Titans rank fourth in the NFL, averaging 127 yards rushing per game.ROAD MARIOTA: Mariota is coming off a poor performance in last weeks 27-20 loss at Houston.Mariota threw for only 202 yards with a passer rating of 54.1. But since entering the NFL, Mariota has been one of the leagues best away from home. In eight games, he has thrown for 1,814 yards with 12 touchdowns and only three interceptions, with one of those last week. He has a 98.5 passer rating that puts him behind only Josh McCown, Russell Wilson, Andy Dalton, Tom Brady and Derek Carr on the road.TRASH TALK: Wake will butt heads with Titans tackles Taylor Lewan and Jack Conklin, and offered a candid assessment of them.Theyre big, theyre slow and theyre ugly, just like most of the ones we have here, Wake said. Us fast, pretty guys like to take advantage of them.---AP Sports Writer Teresa Walker in Nashville, Tennessee contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Steve-Wine.
