LONDON -- The Jacksonville Jaguars survived another crazy fourth-quarter shootout in London. Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas Online .For the second consecutive year, wide receiver Allen Hurns had the clinching touchdown for the Jaguars, who often rely on big plays from Hurns and fellow wideout Allen Robinson.Hurns sometimes gets less attention than Robinson, but he has been the Jags game-breaker in their British second home at Wembley Stadium.Last year, Hurns diving 31-yard reception to the left pylon with barely a minute left lifted his team to a comeback victory over the Buffalo Bills.On Sunday, he did it again, taking a short reception and using his elusiveness to beat the Colts defense for a 42-yard touchdown with 5 minutes left in the fourth quarter of the Jaguars 30-27 win over the Colts (1-3).Hurns score -- his first touchdown of the season as well as his longest reception -- put the game beyond the reach of Andrew Luck despite the Colts three fourth-quarter TDs.Hurns and Robinson say theres something special about playing in London, where Wembleys 84,000 seats are sold out for every match and the Jaguars are being marketed with increasing effectiveness as the home team.On Sunday, thousands waved Jaguars yellow banners and turned up the volume whenever the Colts had the ball.We had a lot of fans out there, said Robinson, who caught the games first touchdown on an inside slant from the 3-yard line to give the Jags (1-3) a 7-0 lead.He said the Jaguar tunnel, the roaring crowd and the sea of yellow flags of support made it feel like a real home game.Hurns downplayed his role in his score, crediting teammates with key blocks.But he said Jacksonville really needed this win after two narrow defeats at home to the Ravens and Packers left teammates questioning whether they could hold on for a win.Knowing how close we were these last couple weeks, to be able to close out a game, that meant a lot to the team, Hurns said.Heres other take-aways from the Colts-Jags matchup.COLTS NEED MORE THAN LUCK: They need a commitment to a running game.The Colts have failed to get a 100-yard running performance since 2012, longest stretch in the league. The Colts signed Frank Gore, but do not get him the ball enough to wear down other teams defenses and take pressure off Luck.On Sunday, behind a patchwork offensive line starting two rookies on the right side, Luck was sacked six times.Once again an early turnover -- this time on a pass tipped by Dante Fowler, in Lucks face within a second of the snap, to teammate Yannick Ngakoue for an interception -- led to the Jaguars first touchdown.We had some success on the ground, but we couldnt get anything going in the pass game, obviously, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. And they did a nice job mixing things up, pressuring our quarterbacks.Gores 16 carries gained 68 yards and he added 27 yards on receptions.Gore said he understood why he wasnt running more in the second half: The Colts were too far behind.Weve got to come from behind (and) score quick. Weve got one of the top quarterbacks at his position and great receivers, and if weve got to score quick, how can you try to run the ball when youre down 23-6? Its tough, he said.TIGHT END WOES: The Colts tight ends, usually among Lucks favorite options, had a Sunday to forget.Jack Doyle made what looked like the games biggest play for the Colts, a 53-yard scamper from Lucks rollout, but the Jaguars successfully challenged the call that Luck had avoided a sack before his throw. Replays showed Lucks left knee on the turf before his pass to Doyle.Dwayne Allen struggled. He dropped a sure first-down pass that preceded Lucks interception. Allen did catch his next two passes for 20 yards -- but killed the Colts final drive by dropping another ball hitting him in his hands on fourth-and-1.BAD NEWS, BEARS: Both the Jags and Colts have a chance to improve their records in successive weeks versus the NFC Norths Bears.The Colts will host Chicago (1-3) next Sunday, going without a bye week -- unusual for teams following their sleep-depriving 8-hour commutes to London. The Jaguars are taking a bye week, then play Chicago on the road the following weekend.After the Bears, the Colts face a pivotal duo of games versus AFC South rivals Texans (3-1) and Titans (1-3), both on the road. The Jaguars host the Oakland Raiders before traveling to Tennessee.---Associated Press reporter Zac Boyer contributed to this story.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Nike Air Max Ofertas .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. Air Max Outlet España . William Carrier opened the scoring for Cape Breton (6-4-2), but Andrew Ryan tied the game and Brent Andrews put the Mooseheads (8-6-0) in front for good with a short-handed goal at 13:49 of the second period. http://www.airmaxbaratasoutlet.es/ . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. The representative career of fiery back-rower Greg Bird is almost certainly over after he was omitted by NSW for next weeks State of Origin III.Bird was one of three players dropped by Blues selectors for the dead rubber at ANZ Stadium but while Dylan Walker and Matt Moylan have time to return to the Origin stage, 32-year-old Birds time appears to be up.The axing by his state comes months after Bird was overlooked by Australia coach Mal Meninga for this years ANZAC Test against New Zealand in Newcastle.The back-rower made 18 appearances for his state after debuting in 2007 but lost 12 of those fixtures during Queenslands era of dominance in the interstate series.Bird only tasted the joy of a series victory once in his Origin career, playing two of the Blues games in their drought-breaking 2014 campaign.Gold Coast coach Neil Henry says no-one would be hurting more than his Titans veteran about the dumping.Hell be disappointed because hes passionate about representingg NSW and you take every opportunity you can to do the job, Henry said. Nike Air Max Baratas Online. .Hes been very good for NSW for a long period of time.The news means the Titans have no representatives involved in this years final Origin clash, with Queensland forward Nate Myles leaving the club to join Manly at the end of 2015.Henry says while Birds omission is a personal disappointment, it could be of benefit to his club team.Those guys dont get breaks, theyre in camp but they dont really get away from footy at any stage, Henry said.Well take it ... we certainly need him fit and firing.GREG BIRDS REPRESENTATIVE CAREERNSW COUNTRY (2007, 2010, 2012)Games: 3 (1 win, 2 losses)NSW (2007-08, 2010-14, 2016)Games: 18 (6 wins, 12 losses)Tries: 2* Part of 2014 series winAUSTRALIA (2007-08, 2010, 2012-15)Games: 17 (13 wins, 4 losses)Tries: 4* Won 2013 World Cup Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
