His four RBIs were a season high.
CLEVELAND BROWNS (0-16)

OPEN CAMP: July 26 Cheap Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , Berea, Ohio

LAST YEAR: Browns hit new low 鈥?and that's saying something 鈥?by joining 2008 Detroit Lions in infamy as only teams to go winless in 16-game schedule. Nothing went right. Decision to start rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer backfired as he led NFL with 22 interceptions. Browns were better than their record but consistently found way to lose. Team suffered huge blow when perennial Pro Bowl offensive tackle Joe Thomas tore triceps in Week 7 and missed remainder of season. General manager Sashi Brown was fired in December.

IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: GM John Dorsey, offensive coordinator Todd Haley, QB Tyrod Taylor, WR Jarvis Landry, rookie QB Baker Mayfield, LB Mychal Kendricks, QB Drew Stanton, RB Carlos Hyde, DB Damarious Randall, rookie CB Denzel Ward Eagles Markus Wheaton Jersey , rookie RB Nick Chubb, rookie OL Austin Corbett.

IMPORTANT LOSSES: OT Joe Thomas, RB Isaiah Crowell, QB DeShone Kizer, DT Danny Shelton, CB James McCourty, CB Jamar Taylor.

CAMP NEEDS: Coach Hue Jackson has spent offseason touting Taylor, who led Buffalo to playoffs last year, as Week 1 starter. But things could change if No. 1 overall pick Mayfield shows he's ready. Plan is to bring him along slowly, but when have things ever gone as planned for Browns? Loss of Thomas leaves enormous hole that may take time to fill. RT Shon Coleman will get first crack, but there are other options Authentic Marcus Davenport Jersey , including Greg Robinson, former No. 2 overall pick by Rams who has been bust.

EXPECTATIONS: Owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam stuck with Jackson despite 1-31 record over two seasons. He's lightened his load by turning offense over to Haley, who spent past six seasons running Pittsburgh's high-powered attack. Taylor gives Browns seasoned, proven QB who could stabilize position, but Jackson will feel heat to play Mayfield. Browns will be under more national scrutiny as featured team for HBO's "Hard Knocks." WR Josh Gordon has been on best behavior after years of suspensions. If he can stay clean and play alongside Landry, Browns could have one of league's most potent passing games. DE Myles Garrett had solid rookie season, looking to have monster second year.

The Colorado Avalanche players were supposed to be cleaning out their lockers this weekend, talking about their return to the playoffs and speaking optimistically of next season.

At least that was the assumption when their first-round series with the Predators, the NHL’s top seed, shifted to Nashville for Game 5 on Friday.

The Predators took a 3-1 series lead into their home game and were expected to close out Colorado, but the Avalanche proved to be a tough out by rallying in the final five minutes to win 2-1 and send the series to Denver for Game 6 on Sunday night.

“We’ve got a series again going home Dolphins Mike Gesicki Jersey , and it’s going to be exciting,” Colorado captain Gabe Landeskog said after the win Friday.

Landeskog scored the equalizer with 4:11 left and Sven Andrighetto won it with an odd-man rush with 1:28 remaining. The late rally was made possible by the play of Andrew Hammond, the Avalanche’s No. 3 goaltender who was thrust into the spotlight after injuries to Semyon Varlamov and Jonathan Bernier.

Hammond made a career-high 44 saves and outplayed Nashville’s Vezina Trophy favorite, Pekka Rinne, in stunning the Predators.

It was the first time in four tries Nashville has failed to win a game with a chance to end the series dating to last year. But don’t expect the President’s Trophy winners to hang their heads.

“We can’t be depressed in here and sit and stew,” Colton Sissons told The Tennessean after Friday’s game. “We’ve got to move on and be professionals. We’ve been here before and we’ll be ready for Game 6, that’s for sure.”

Nashville still leads the series 3-2 and has already won a game on the road. It was that Game 4 victory that had everyone thinking Game 5 was a formality, but the gritty Avalanche proved to be resilient.

Colorado has made it a series despite mounting injuries. Varlamov’s season ended before the start of the playoffs with a lower-body injury, top defenseman Erik Johnson was lost to a knee injury with a week left in the season and Bernier went down in the second period of Game 4.

Defenseman Samuel Girard, acquired from Nashville in November as part of the three-team deal that sent Matt Duchene to Ottawa, missed the games in Denver with an upper-body injury but returned for Game 5.

Still http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/a...ick-jersey , the Avalanche have pressed on, are playing loose hockey and have the Predators’ attention.

“It’s hockey,” Predators forward Austin Watson told The Tennessean. “There’s another team out there. I don’t know if you guys see that. They’re playing pretty well.”

Nashville will get back forward Ryan Hartman after he served a one-game suspension for his hit on Colorado center Carl Soderberg in Game 4. His return will bolster an already deep lineup that has scored 17 goals in the five-game series.

But Colorado has shown it won’t go away. The Avalanche scored the first goal in the first three games and their three losses were close. Another close game in the third period Sunday could play in their favor.

“I’ve said it all year long, haven’t I? This is a special group,” Landeskog said. “It’s too early to have the season end. We have way too much hockey in us left, and way too much fight. We’re not going to let this go easy. So we keep working.”
