PHILADELPHIA -- The other Philadelphia Eagles rookie under the microscope had an impressive debut, too. Nomar Mazara Jersey .Coach Doug Pederson made all the right calls in his first game in charge, including his bold decision to promote Carson Wentz in the first place.Wentz stole the spotlight with an outstanding performance against the Browns, but Pederson helped make it happen. His game plan was excellent and it gave Wentz an opportunity to shine.I was excited for Carson, to see him play, Pederson said Monday. You want so badly for the guys to do well. But overall, felt really good and pleased with their performance. But from my standpoint, I was pretty calm.Pederson wasnt a popular choice to replace Chip Kelly. Many fans wanted a big-name coach or at least one with a pedigree.Instead, owner Jeffrey Lurie turned to a guy who had only been a head coach in high school. But Lurie was familiar with Pederson, who was a quarterback for the Eagles in 1999-2000 and an assistant coach under Andy Reid in Philly and Kansas City.Pederson clearly knows offense. He called several formations, used various personnel packages and kept the defense off-balance. He relayed the plays quickly to Wentz, giving him time to break the huddle, get to the line and survey the defense.One knock against Reid during his tenure in Philadelphia was wasting timeouts because the play clock was winding down.Its tremendous for us to get the play into him quickly because we do a lot of kill package plays and it just gives him time at the line to see what hes seeing defensively and then put us in the right play, Pederson said.The Eagles were balanced with run-pass plays and dominated the game by controlling the ball almost 40 minutes.Time of possession was a sore topic the past three years when Kelly ran an up-tempo offense and the defense spent about 35 minutes per game on the field.The run game really helps in keeping your offense on the football field by keeping yourself in third-and-more-manageable, shorter situations that we had in the game, Pederson said. When you come away and look at (39) minutes of ball control, thats great. You should win the game.Pederson showed hes not afraid to gamble when he went for it on fourth-and-4 from the Browns 40 with a 15-10 lead in the third quarter. Wentz connected with Zach Ertz for a first down and tossed a 35-yard TD pass to Nelson Agholor on the next play.I know he has an aggressive nature about him, Wentz said about the call. I was pretty excited that he had the faith in me to call the fourth-and-4 play and put us in that situation.Game notes TE Ertz has a first rib displacement and CB Leodis McKelvin has a left hamstring strain. Pederson said both players are week to week so its unlikely either will play next Monday night at Chicago.---AP NFL website: Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Cheap Rangers Jerseys Authentic . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Nolan Ryan Jersey . Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points. Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored second-half goals to seal a fourth straight victory for Chelsea, which climbed above Arsenal and Manchester City in the standings ahead of their games on Monday and Sunday respectively. http:///...ino-deshields-jersey .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Edmonton Oilers hope they are finally out of their funk.Leon Draisaitl scored twice and Cam Talbot made 31 saves for his third shutout of the season, helping Edmonton beat the Western Conference-leading Chicago Blackhawks 5-0 on Monday night.Theyve been playing some good hockey lately so its not an easy team to shut out by any means, Talbot said. We played a great team game. Thats a huge statement win for us tonight.Oscar Klefbom, Andrej Sekera and Anton Slepyshev also scored for the Oilers, who have won two straight since ending a five-game skid.Connor McDavid had two assists to move into the NHL scoring lead with 24 points in 20 games.Theyve been playing really well and for us to get a win like that is definitely big for the confidence moving forward, McDavid said. Weve been able to snap out of a bit of a funk and were looking to go on a run now. Once you get out of one of those, it is important you take off from there.The 19-year-old McDavid set up a goal 2:39 in by skating the length of the ice before centering the puck for Klefbom, who blasted a shot past Crawford.McDavid also assisted late in the first when Draisaitl tipped in Klefboms shot from the point on a power play for a 2-0 lead.Corey Crawford made 22 saves in the loss as the Blackhawks had a two-game winning streak snapped.That wasnt our team, it was a tough loss and we just have to forget about it and worry about the next game, Crawford said. I dont take anything away from this one. We created a few good chances, but it was one of those games where nothing was going right. Jurickson Profar Jersey. Talbot kept Chicago from getting on the board four minutes into the second when he stopped Duncan Keith on a point-blank power-play shot.Sekera scored on a long wrist shot with just 7.6 seconds left in the second shortly after a power play expired to make it 3-0.Edmonton took a 4-0 lead seven minutes into the third period when Slepyshevs deceptive shot from a bad angle handcuffed Crawford.Draisaitl scored his second of the game late in the third on the power play to put the game away.Thats the closest weve come to a complete game, Oilers coach Todd McLellan said. Its a really good sign for our team going forward.Game notes It was the first of three games between the two teams this season. Chicago swept the season series last year, with McDavid missing all three contests for the Oilers due to injury. ... Despite their 13-5-2 record, the Blackhawks were last in the NHL on the penalty kill at just 69.5 percent coming into the game. ... Veterans Benoit Pouliot, Mark Letestu and Eric Gryba remained healthy scratches for the Oilers. ... The lone injury listed for Chicago is Trevor van Riemsdyk (upper body), while Edmonton is still without Iiro Pakarinen (knee), Brandon Davidson (upper body) and Mark Fayne (lower body).UP NEXTBlackhawks: Play the fifth in a season-high seven-game road trip in San Jose on Wednesday night.Oilers: Start a two-game trip at Colorado on Wednesday night.
