MINNEAPOLIS - The Detroit Lions are playing some dominant defence. Barry Sanders Oklahoma State Jersey .With Ziggy Ansah and Ndamukong Suh leading a relentless rush, the Lions had eight sacks and three interceptions of Minnesota rookie Teddy Bridgewater in a 17-3 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.Joique Bell put the game away with a fourth-quarter touchdown run to finish with 74 yards on 18 carries, and the Lions (4-2) won at Minnesota for only the second time in their last 17 trips. They entered the week with the fewest yards per game and the second-fewest points per game allowed in the NFL and still managed to top themselves, playing some stingy defence in a division that lacked it last season.Its definitely something to be proud of, but at the end of the day its very early in the season, said Suh, who had two sacks and a big hand in holding the Vikings to 69 yards on 18 rushes. If were talking Week 17 or Week 16 and were still at this pace, which I expect this defence to do, then we can start to be really excited about it because its translating to wins.So far, so good. The Lions bounced back firmly from a 17-14 loss to Buffalo.You have to find a way to stem the tide a little bit. I think our guys were ready to put that one behind them, coach Jim Caldwell said.With Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush absent because of ankle injuries, the Lions played a low-risk game and were forced to punt as often as the Vikings: seven times each. Detroit converted only one of 13 third downs.Matthew Stafford wasnt at his best, missing his three-time All-Pro wide receiver and finishing 19 for 33 for 185 yards. Theo Riddick caught five passes for 75 yards and a touchdown, the latest running back to work his way into the game plan this season. Riddick later hurt his hamstring.But Stafford was turnover-free, most importantly, and good enough to lead a seven-play, 80-yard opening drive for a score to put the defence in position to dominate. The Lions kept pace with three-time defending NFC North champion Green Bay, which won 27-24 at Miami on a last-second touchdown. The Lions beat the Packers 19-7 at home last month.We were just out there on a mission, trying to get back on track, said linebacker Tahir Whitehead, who picked off Bridgewater twice, both on tipped balls.Ansah, who was limping around at times, didnt have any trouble reaching Bridgewater. He had 2 1/2 sacks, as seven different Lions were credited with at least a half of a sack. They held the Vikings to 212 total yards.Hats off to Detroit. Great defence. Theyre No. 1 in the league for a reason, said Bridgewater, who finished 23 for 37 for 188 yards.One of the interceptions was tipped at the line by Devin Taylor and another went through running back Matt Asiatas hands. But Bridgewater also ended a promising opening possession by locking his eyes on Cordarrelle Patterson in the end zone. He threw late on a post pattern, allowing Glover Quin to pick the ball off with ease.The Vikings talked this week about getting the ball more to Patterson, but he was a nonfactor again with one carry for 2 yards and two catches for 15 yards. Bridgewater, left largely unprotected during another shaky performance by the offensive line, targeted Patterson with eight passes.Im extremely disappointed about this loss. I can handle getting beat, but I cant handle getting our butts whipped like that, coach Mike Zimmer said.The one problem for Detroit? Two more missed field goal attempts. Newcomer Matt Prater, the third kicker used by the Lions in four weeks, made a 52-yarder but missed from 50 and 44 into swirling wind. Caldwell said he wasnt concerned.NOTES: Suh, in his fifth season, passed Shaun Rogers on the franchise list for career sacks by a defensive tackle, with 30 1/2. Rogers played seven years for the Lions. ... Jerick McKinnon moved ahead of Asiata as the featured runner for the Vikings and totalled 82 total yards on 17 touches. ... The Lions have missed 10 of 15 field goals this season.___AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Steve Owens Oklahoma Jersey .com) - Jimmy Butler made four key free throws down the stretch to lift the Chicago Bulls over the Boston Celtics, 109-102, on Friday. Mike Weber Ohio State Jersey . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. http://www.cheapnfljerseysbiz.us.com/cornhuskers-3-taylor-martinez-black-new-big-10-stitched-ncaa-jersey-qb-25 .J. -- Having Ondrej Pavelec earn his 100th NHL win and seeing Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane break goal droughts were nice highlights for the Winnipeg Jets.SAO PAULO - Brazilian police have detained six people after a confrontation that left a 21-year-old football fan dead this weekend, marking the third death involving rival supporter groups in Sao Paulo this year.Authorities said Monday that the six men will be interrogated to explain their participation in the fighting that took place on a major highway just hours before the Brazilian league game between Palmeiras and Santos on Sunday at the Pacaembu Stadium.Four people remained hospitalized, including one with a gunshot wound. Their condition was not immediately released, though local media reported the injuries were not life-threatening.Police said the man who died was run over by a car after he and other Palmeiras fans went onto the highway to try to ambush two buses carrying Santos supporters.Palmeiras fans tried to block the buses and used rocks and pieces of wood in the attack. Authorities believe a Santos supporter shot at the Palmeiras fans. Three of the injured were also run over as drivers tried to flee the confrontation. Police were investigating whether Santos fans who were driving along the buses tried to hit the rivals on purpose.Authorities had to partially block the busy highway that links the coastal city of Santos to Sao Paulo for nearly two hours.Another Palmeiras fan died in August after a clash against Corinnthians supporters before a league match. Ricky Stanzi Iowa Jersey. . The 31-year-old man was hit on the head with iron bars and pieces of wood. The fight broke out after rival groups crossed paths at a train station outside Sao Paulo.In February, a Santos fan was beaten to death by Sao Paulo supporters at a bus stop after a match between the teams.This month, a fan of second-division club Avai died when a group of men threw rocks at the van he was in after a match. Police said at the time the attack likely came from a rival group.There have been several other cases of violence inside and outside stadiums across Brazil this year, with fans using iron bars, homemade explosives and knives in confrontations. There were fights in at least three stadiums last month, and four Atletico Mineiro fans heading to a match sustained minor injuries after being shot at while at a bus stop.Two different Corinthians fan groups clashed recently while fighting for spots at the teams new arena, and members of a Palmeiras group threw rocks and bottles at the teams bus after a loss earlier this year.The fan violence has prompted Brazils sports tribunal to punish a few clubs, including Corinthians and league leader Cruzeiro, making them play in front of empty stands or away from their stadiums.___Follow Tales Azzoni at http://www.twitter.com/tazzoni Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
