JETER METER The Yankees captains

NEW YORK -- Peyton Manning back in Indianapolis -- in a Broncos uniform. wholesale nfl jerseys . Peyton vs. younger brother Eli in another Manning Bowl. Andy Reid returning to Philadelphia: Let the booing begin now? The NFL schedule is filled with return visits and intriguing matchups, beginning with a road game for the defending Super Bowl champions. And Peyton Manning will be part of that too, as the Baltimore Ravens travel to Denver for the now-traditional Thursday night opener on Sept. 5. The Orioles are home that night and Major League Baseball could not move their game. So $121 million quarterback Joe Flacco and his fellow champs were sent to Denver -- to face Manning and the team they beat in double overtime on their way to the Super Bowl. "It still bites on everybody," Broncos receiver Eric Decker said. "Its tough to kind of relive that game, especially the opportunities I think we left on the field. Its going to definitely fire us going into this year." New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, who spent 10 years as an assistant in Baltimore, seemed most interested -- and was annoyed by -- the Ravens being forced to kick off the season on the road. "I think that the world champs can open up at home and thats where I think they should open, at home," Ryan said. "I think it is common courtesy. I dont know what gets involved in that. I am not in charge of it, but if I would have been, the Ravens would be opening at home. "If baseball had only 16 games, I might understand it. But just as common courtesy maybe (the Orioles) say, Ill play this one on the road." Just from a fan perspective of sports." In Week 2, Peyton visits Elis house. Both Manning brothers often have said its uncomfortable yet memorable playing against each other; its only happened twice, with Peyton and the Colts winning. Even though Peyton now is a Bronco, the dynamic is unchanged for the star quarterbacks. "We havent talked about it a whole lot," Eli said. "More kind of joking and jabs at each other, but obviously anytime you play your brother it is special. It is unique and I cherish those moments whether before the game or looking across during the national anthem and seeing my big brother and seeing him at the coin flip; those are great moments that well cherish." The folks in Indy cherished having Peyton Manning as their record-setting quarterback for 13 seasons; he sat out 2011 after several neck surgeries, then was released by the Colts and signed with Denver. The reception he almost certainly will receiver at Lucas Oil Stadium will be warm and loud. "Its always fun when you spend time at a place and then go back," said Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, who has done that in Foxborough four times. "Im sure hell get a standing ovation right when he comes out. Hopefully, it will be loud and the fans will make it hard for him (to call plays)." Like they do in Philadelphia -- for both teams. Reid jokingly acted surprised about the Chiefs Week 3 trip to the City of Brotherly Love -- and, at times, venom for the coach of the Eagles, which Reid was for 14 seasons. Reid and the rest of the Chiefs knew about it long ago, and they got the Thursday night spotlight. "Were playing Philly?" said Reid, hired by Kansas City days after being fired in Philly. "Nah, itll be an exciting atmosphere. It always is at Lincoln Financial Field there. But right now, Im a Chief, so were going to get ourselves ready to play, whenever and wherever we have to play this season." Other high-profile games: --The Sunday night season opener is the Giants at the Cowboys, and the Monday night doubleheader has Philadelphia at Washington -- with or without Offensive Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III, who is rehabilitating a major knee injury -- then Houston at San Diego. "I will say this: Here comes the challenge again," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. "We didnt play as well last year on the road as we had in previous years and so thats a great challenge for our team." --Thanksgiving Day has Detroit hosting Green Bay -- once an every-year occurrence -- and Dallas at home for Oakland. "Its an incredible tradition, playing on Thanksgiving Day," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "Its a blessing for everyone involved. Were fortunate enough to still be home in time to share in the importance of the day." The holiday night game features one of footballs most intense rivalries: Pittsburgh at Baltimore. --Rematches of 2012 championship games come on Sunday night, Dec. 22, with New England at Baltimore, and the next night, with NFC winner San Francisco at Atlanta in the final Monday nighter of the season. --Buffalos annual home game in Toronto will be against the Falcons on Dec. 1. --London will host two previously announced matches: Minnesota hosting Pittsburgh on Sept. 29, and Jacksonville hosting San Francisco on Oct. 27. --2012 MVP Adrian Peterson and the Vikings open at Detroit. Other notable games on the first weekend have Green Bay at San Francisco and Atlanta at New Orleans. --As has become standard for the NFL, all 16 finales are intradivision matchups. cheap jerseys from china . The win gives Canada its fifth title at the World Sledge Hockey Challenge. "Weve got to keep pushing," said Westlake, who led Canada with five goals in the tournament. "The second you let off the pedal, everyone catches up. wholesale jerseys . But in the end, some wily veterans stole the spotlight as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 2-0 in a showdown for first place overall in the NHL.TAMPA, Fla. - Yankees fifth starter candidate Michael Pineda allowed three runs and six hits over six innings Sunday in New Yorks 3-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Dioner Navarro had an RBI single in the second, which ended Pinedas scoreless streak at 10 innings. The right-hander avoided further damage by getting an inning-ending double play from Ryan Goins with the bases loaded. Toronto scored twice in the fifth, on Pinedas throwing error after fielding a bunt and a wild pitch. Considered the front runner, Pineda is competing with David Phelps, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno for the final rotation spot behind opening day starter CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova. Manager Joe Girardi is expected to announce the choice Tuesday. Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle gave up one run and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings. STARTING TIME Blue Jays: Buehrle made the start on his 35th birthday. "I just dropped the family off at the airport," Buehrle said. "Im going to go home and clean up the house." The left-hander took a shutout into the sixth before giving up a run on Derek Jeters double-play grounder. Buehrle will make his final spring training start in the first of two exhibition games in Montreal on Friday night against the New York Mets. Yankees: Pineda missed the past two years following right shoulder surgery. cheap nfl jerseys. "I want to make it," Pineda said. "I want to stay with the team." Nova is scheduled to pitch in a minor league game Monday, an off day for the Yankees. TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: Infielder Jose Reyes, who left after three innings of Saturdays game due to left hamstring tightness, didnt play, and is day to day. "He feels a little better," manager John Gibbons said. "We still dont think its a big deal." Yankees: Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, scratched March 16 due to right calf tightness, took batting practice and ran the bases. He could return Tuesday in a minor league game. "Just building up," Ellsbury said. "Want to make sure its 100 per cent." JETER METER The Yankees captains offensive funk continued, going hitless in three at-bats. Jeter is 5 for 44 in 15 games. Girardi said he is not worried about Jeters bat. PERFECT TIMES Three of the 23 major leaguers to pitch a perfect game were at Steinbrenner Field. Buehrle, New York spring training instructor David Wells and Yankees broadcaster David Cone. KILLER B Dellin Betances is still in the mix for the Yankees bullpen and made quite an impression Sunday by striking out Jose Bautista and getting a flyball from Edwin Encarnacion with bases loaded to end seventh.
