LANDOVER, Md. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Fast Shipping . -- More than a year has passed since the Carolina Panthers crushed the Washington Redskins to remain undefeated on their way to the Super Bowl, and, oh, how things have changed.All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman signed with the Redskins after the Panthers removed the franchise tag to make him a free agent.While Carolinas younger defense and quarterback Cam Newton have struggled and failed to meet expectations, Washington (7-5-1) remains in the NFC wild-card hunt with three games to go.These arent the same Panthers (5-8) who beat the Redskins 44-16 in November 2015, but theyre still a formidable group in the way of Kirk Cousins and Co. returning to the playoffs.A lot of the same players are back, so were going to have our hands full, said Cousins, who needs 122 yards to break his single-season franchise passing record from last year.I remember we had five turnovers and if we turn the ball over again we can expect a similar result. Weve got to protect the football and if we do that, weve got a chance, but if we turn it over, well put ourselves in a hole just like we did last year.Without Norman, Carolina starts two rookie cornerbacks in James Bradberry and Daryl Worley. But Charles Johnson, Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short are still there on the Panthers defensive line and can rush Cousins, who has 23 touchdowns to nine interceptions this season.The Redskins offense hasnt been the problem. Ricky Jean Francois said the defense, which has struggled on third down and in the red zone, is aiming to do two things: Win and stop Cam Newton.Last years NFL MVP is banged up and struggling, but Washington doesnt see him as a hobbled star or the Panthers as a hobbled team.I understand what their record is, but thats still a team at any given time that can still come out and become the Carolina they once were last year with the quarterback they have, Jean Francois said.And they got a great head coach so I know hes pushing those guys up front to keep being the team that they are -- not the team they are now but the team he knows theyre capable of being.---Some things to watch when the Panthers visit the Redskins on Monday night:SACK ATTACK: The Panthers dont have anyone in double digits in sacks this season, but still lead the NFL in that category with 39. Eighteen different players have been in on a sack this season for the Panthers, led by situational pass rusher Mario Addison with 7+.Its never one thing, defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said of the teams rise up the leaderboard in sacks. I know sometimes you guys want me to say, `Well, its just this. Here was the magic deal. No, its working hard. Its earning the right to be good.We got off to maybe a slow start in that (sacks) category. But the guys have worked extremely hard. The coaches have worked extremely hard to get it to where it is right now.NORMAN FIRED UP: Redskins coach Jay Gruden believes Norman gets up for every game, but this one against his former team will have some extra juice.Norman said he almost felt stabbed in the back when the Panthers removed the franchise tag. I think come Monday night, those emotions I think they will probably come out and show themselves, Norman said.BENJAMIN EXPECTS TRASH TALK: Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin anticipates he will be matched up against Norman for most of the game and expects to hear plenty of trash talk from his former teammate.Oh yeah, I know he will talk trash, Benjamin said with a wide smile. Im looking forward to it. Norman and Benjamin exchanged trash talk when the two practiced against each other, but said he never let the cornerback get in his head.Not at all, actually, Benjamin said with a smile. I would probably say I used to get in Joshs head more than he got in mine. I just came in with an attitude (my rookie year) to compete.SO MUCH FOR MVP: Newton has struggled with accuracy all season and has completed just 43 percent of his passes over his past four games with no more than 14 completions in any of those matchups. Newton is completing 53.5 percent of his passes for the season, the worst mark among starting quarterbacks in the NFL.Newton said Wednesday that he couldnt care less about his completion percentage and his only concern is wins and losses.SPAIGHTS SPOTLIGHT: With middle linebacker Will Compton injured, Martrell Spaight could make his first pro start for the Redskins. Spaight filled in for Compton in a victory at the Philadelphia Eagles and will be given the headset and the controls to the defense against Carolina.Hes a young football player still with limited starting reps, but this is a great opportunity for him, Gruden said. Well see what he can do. We have a good feeling of what he can do. We know he can play the run, hes very physical.---AP Sports Writer Steve Reed in Charlotte, North Carolina, contributed.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . Now that hes hitting streaking teammates with pin-point passes for easy layups, Love is asserting himself as one of the true superstars in the league. Discount Nike NFL Jerseys . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. . But when it comes to determining if Raymond will find a place on the Leafs roster when training camp concludes in a week, well, that decision will ultimately fall to the head coach. State Senator Catherine Pugh is running one of the most watched races of 2016: the Baltimore mayoral race. Tuesday, the citys residents will head to the polls and decide whether Pugh will succeed Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.The Democratic nominee is serving her third term in the Maryland state senate representing District 40 in Baltimore, but Pugh is no stranger to tough races. In addition to being a competitive runner and athlete, Pugh founded the Baltimore Marathon 16 years ago, and it has grown into the Baltimore Running Festival with more than 25,000 participants.Sen. Pugh spoke with espnW about her love for running, Baltimore and how she manages her time.Running BaltimoreThe idea of the marathon was my idea, but the business of running Baltimore is about being an inclusive city, becoming more diverse and realizing that the area has such great things happening. At the same time, we, like many urban cities, suffer from issues that are decades old. Yet, we have great universities and hospitals in ones like John Hopkins and the University of Maryland Medical System, so we are a city of opportunities -- one that is just spurting and starting to grow. So its a very exciting time and envisioning the future is easy, because I have so many assets to work with. At the same time, its how I pull it all together, so I think itll make it a difference in the future of our city.Marathons in MarylandI was actually at an event with former Mayor Martin OMalley and Katie OMalley, his wife, who is a runner. ?Im also a runner, so I asked her at that event what she was training for, and she said she was training for a D.C. Marathon. I said, How upsetting is it that the city doesnt have its own marathon? We used to have what we called the Maryland Marathon, which was really great, so I said, The city needs its own marathon. I then walked over to her husband, who was mayor at the time, and said, The city needs its own marathon, and he said, OK.That was an OK, but there was no money. I remember working for [former Maryland Gov.] William Donald Schaefer, who said, When you see a problem, bring me a solution. When he said OK, that meant I had to come up with the way to get it done. So I went to the citys law department and said the city doesnt have any money. It was my thought that we would create a big proposal, advertising for bidders who created a Baltimore Marathon that would be inclusive of half marathons, team marathons and a 5K that would occur on a Saturday. People said, Why Saturday? and I said, Because it would increase participation. It would get people coming to our city earlier, participating in our running festival prior to the marathon and staying in our city that Thursday night, Friday night, run the marathon Saturday and Sunday stay and enjoy our city. And thats in fact what has occurred. We started out with 6,600 runners and are now at 25,000 runners.Timing is everythingI am such an individual runner. Have you ever seen annyone who likes to play golf and really likes to play by themselves? That would be me. China NFL Jerseys. Running is not only relaxing, but it gives me time to think and gives me time to spend with myself. Its not just a sport and an exercise for me. Its a moment of peace and tranquility.Now, I have run with running groups and trained with other people. Marathon training requires a certain concentration and certain dedication, and sometimes it really is helpful to be in a group because it helps you stick to your agenda. I know when I was running marathons, we ran 80 miles a week and the person that I trained with was very meticulous about what you had to do every day. One of the things he taught me, which is why in my first marathon I ran a 3:19, was that you didnt run for distance -- you ran for time. He said that I had to build my body up to the point that I could take a three-hour run, once a week, for 11 straight weeks, and I would feel the impact of that for when I finally got to the marathon, and he was absolutely right. I am certain that at some point during the marathon training, I got close to 26.2 because people will tell you that you crash at the 18th mile, but I did not and I never had that experience of crashing. Ive always been able to run through. In fact, I think Im more competitive in the end then I am in the beginning. In the beginning of the marathon, Im just trying to stay on pace.Weekly races[I ran] 48 races in one year -- placed in almost every single race. What was really funny is that there was a race in Annapolis where they only award the top 10 women, no age groups or anything. I came in 11th and I was sitting on the side dismayed, and someone walked up to me and said, Whats up with you? Why are you looking all sad? Youre the first black girl in? I said, S---, aint no awards for first black girls. Its about the top 10. I missed it.Running for a purposeWe want people to be healthy. Whether its running, walking, skipping, hopping or jumping, you just have to move your body. We are trying to create more bike trails in the city for people to be able to ride safely.Baltimore is different than most big cities and the streets are not that wide. Our marathons have five different starts because of that, but were getting better at addressing it. I always tell people when they are running through the city, I like running on the street -- on the tar of the street -- because it gives more. The curbs are made of cement, which creates problems for us as we get older with our knees because of the constant pounding. You want shock resistant shoes. You also want a comfortable setting and the tar is more comfortable then the cement. It is important for runners to A: Run against the traffic, and B: Be conscious of your surroundings. I dont wear earphones. I run to my own beat thats in my head. ' ' '
