ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos head into their bye week at 7-3 and feeling good about themselves and their chances to make another Super Bowl run.They can thank their safeties.Darian Stewart had three takeaways and T.J. Ward got one in the Broncos 25-23 win at New Orleans on Sunday that was secured by rookies Justin Simmons and Will Parks tag-teaming the first defensive game-winning 2-point play in league history.Simmons blocked the extra point after Drew Brees 32-yard TD toss to Brandin Cooks with 1:22 remaining and Parks returned it 84 yards, somehow staying inbounds as he darted down the Saints sideline.I knew Id blocked it because my right arm was throbbing for a little bit, Simmons said Monday. Everyone was running to the left. So, I look at Will was already like 20 yards in front of everybody, running off to the sideline. I was just praying he got into the end zone.It was the kind of play that can kick-start careers and salvage a season.This was a huge victory for us, especially coming off a bad loss last week to the Raiders, DeMarcus Ware said.And now we go into the bye and get some of our banged-up guys back and we should be ready to go the rest of the season.Ware has been playing about 28 snaps a game since returning from a broken forearm and the plan is to double that down the stretch. Coach Gary Kubiak said Monday he is optimistic Aqib Talib (back) and Derek Wolfe (elbow) will be back in the lineup when the Broncos face Kansas City (7-2) on Nov. 27 in prime time.Also, quarterback Trevor Siemian, who has been dealing with a painful left shoulder ever since spraining the A.C. joint in Week 4, got another cortisone injection after getting hit 20 times by the Saints.The rest will do him some good, Kubiak said.The Broncos avoided their first stretch of four losses in six games since Kyle Orton was their quarterback to start the 2011 season.I probably shouldnt get too ahead of myself, but I feel good about (Talib) and Derek being ready to go, Kubiak said. Aqib actually worked out today. I watched him from upstairs when he worked out with the trainers on the field. Everything looks good. Well probably hold Derek until we get to about next Wednesday and then cut him loose. It sure looks like were going to get closer to full strength. Thats an encouraging thing.Kubiak also feels good about the progression of Simmons, a third-rounder from Boston College, and Parks, a sixth-rounder from Arizona, and the way theyre augmenting Denvers special teams and the Broncos No Fly Zone defense.Theyre both playing well. We have confidence in them, Kubiak said. T.J. and Stew have played big time. Theyve played about 98 to 100 percent of the snaps for this team. Those guys will have to take a little bit off of them. But theyre both doing a good job.Parks said he didnt realize he was close to going out of bounds -- his white cleats blended in with the sideline and there was no clear angle showing he stepped out, so the call stood.I think that made it real interesting, Parks said.Simmons had never in his life blocked a kick, but special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis liked his 40-inch vertical at the NFL Combine and taught him how to leap long snappers.The play is called Leaper, and when DeCamillis called it, Simmons said he did a double-take even though he had been using all the previous kicks to get a feel for the Saints cadence so he could time his jump just right.Simmons was still in awe of the play, saying, I woke up this morning and I was like `Damn, that was wild. Im getting texts still and everything like that, but Im just happy about the win.Both Parks and Simmons knew joining the Super Bowl champs and their stellar secondary meant theyd have to make their mark mostly on special teams at first and pitch in where they could on the leagues top-ranked pass defense.Obviously, everyone in our secondary is at the elite stage and theyve all made Pro Bowls, theyve almost done everything you can do in this league, Simmons said. So, coming in youve got to show them that youre all ball.Pitching in means the world to both, Parks said.Me and Justin, we got the vets smiling on the plane back and thats what its all about, Parks said. Theyve made me happy plenty of times. So, why not reward them back and take some pressure off their hands?I want to do that every week now. I want to do it in practice, in the film room, in the game.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton A.J.

Michael Jordan Womens Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. Gold will be on Andy Murrays mind when he plays in a second successive Olympic final on Sunday.The world No. 2 is the first man ever to achieve the feat and, should he retain the title he won so gloriously in 2012, he would become the first tennis player to win back to back singles golds.In an era dominated by three all-time greats, to accomplish something Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have not done first is a huge feather in Murrays cap.The goal is to just try and win a gold medal, he said. Im not really thinking about any of the stuff that goes with that just now.Its obviously a very difficult thing to do, hence why its not been done before. Ill go out there, hopefully play a good match, fight as hard as I can, give it everything and see what happens.If Murray can find the same form he showed in a 6-1, 6-4 demolition of fourth seed Kei Nishikori then he will be tough to beat.The 29-year-old knew he needed to step things up after surviving tight, tense tussles against Fabio Fognini and Steve Johnson and he did just that.Murray served superbly and dominated off the ground, with Nishikori failing to create a break point during the match.The Scot said: I served very well and I had no lulls in the match. I made most of the games really tough for him. Even the ones that I lost he was having to work hard for.I knew after yesterday, both of us had long matches. His singles was physically probably tougher than mine but I also had to play mixed [doubles].I knew if I could get off to a good start, make it physically tough for him after that then it would be hard and thats what happened.The one big disappointment was the crowd, with the stadium half full at best by the end and significantly less than that for much of it.But they were all on their feet at the end of the remarkable penulttimate point, which ended with Murray sat on his backside with arm aloft after somehow conjuring a winning passing shot.ddddddddddddHe said: I just came up with a bit of a lucky shot down the line. I didnt even see it bounce so I didnt know whether it was in or not. Thankfully it was good.I was obviously pumped because if he turns that around and potentially breaks its a totally different match. It was a huge point.One thing Murray certainly should not lack, when he plays Juan Martin Del Potro in the final, is confidence.He extended his career-best winning streak to 17 matches and has now won 28 of his last 29, winning titles in Rome, at Queens Club and Wimbledon and reaching the final of the French Open.Murray was rewarded for his achievements both Olympic and otherwise by being given the honour of carrying the British flag at the opening ceremony and is pleased to have ensured he will contribute to the medals table.He can at worst leave Rio with silver, adding to the singles gold and mixed doubles silver he won in London.The last four months definitely have been the best period of my career, said Murray.My job is to try to keep that going now and keep up the consistency Ive had.Ive played not my best tennis this week but found a way to win. Often in events you have matches like the one yesterday or the one against Fognini that if you can get through you start to find your form and feel better.When youre competing for your country you do feel a bit of extra responsibility, obviously.After carrying the flag, I didnt want to go and bomb out in the first round and not play well. Im glad I was able to win a medal and to win gold would cap off a special 10 days for me. ' ' '
