LAS VEGAS -- The New England Patriots (the 5-2 Super Bowl favorites) and Minnesota Vikings (the last undefeated team) remained Nos. 1-2 in the NFL Vegas Rankings this week, but the big news was the Pittsburgh Steelers dropping from No. 3 to a tie for 10th.Pittsburgh lost 30-15 at Miami and Ben Roethlisberger went to the locker room but came back to finish the game. He had surgery Monday to repair a torn meniscus and its unclear how much time hes going to miss. Landry Jones will start in his place.ESPNs Football Power Index (FPI) only lowered the Steelers rating by 2 points. Erin Rynning and I lowered them by a lot more and the average came out to a 4-point decrease.Heres a look at the teams making the biggest moves up and down the rankings, and then well look for some Week 7 value plays (12-6 ATS so far this season) using this weeks power ratings:Note: The NFL Vegas Rankings are compiled by taking the average of the power ratings of ESPN Chalk handicappers, including Erin Rynning, yours truly and ESPNs Football Power Index, and are used to compare two teams as if they were to meet on a neutral field (after which most teams get 2.5 points for home-field advantage) and can be used to compare to the current point spread.Movin on upThe biggest increase in Week 6 came from two teams [url=http://www.officialauthenticvikingsshop.com/authentic-jerick-mckinnon-jersey.html]Jerick McKinnon Jersey[/url] . The giant slalom world champion slipped during her first run in the morning, landing on her back and then twisting forward before getting her leg caught in the protective material on the side of the slope.

LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse.

"It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race.

Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Jim McElwain never had a quarterback at Alabama quite like Jalen Hurts.The freshman has emerged as the top-ranked Crimson Tides most prolific rushing quarterback, a departure in style from the drop-back passers running the show during McElwains days as offensive coordinator in Tuscaloosa.Now, his 15th-ranked Florida Gators have to figure out a way to contain Hurts and the Tide in Saturdays Southeastern Conference championship game in Atlanta.Theyve added a new dimension, obviously, the Gators coach said. This quarterback is something thats real special, has created a lot of explosive plays not only for himself but obviously because you have to play that component, it loosens it up for some other guys. There isnt really a weakness on that team.Now, though, the 6-foot-2, 209-pound Hurts will be facing the best pass defense of his young career. The Gators rank third nationally in pass defense efficiency, behind only playoff contenders Ohio State and Michigan -- among the potential Tide opponents down the road.Its a challenge for a youngster who has been a dynamic playmaker but hardly immune to mistakes -- no surprise for a freshman, even one leading the defending national champions. (Coach Nick Saban doesnt allow freshmen to speak to the media during the regular season, so Hurts own take on his play will have to wait until at least after the game.)Hurts has passed for 2,454 yards and 21 touchdowns. He has also already set the single-season rushing record for an Alabama quarterback with 840 yards while accounting for half of the teams 24 touchdowns on the ground and 30 percent of the Tides runs.Thats been good enough to lead the Tide to a perfect regular season and secure Hurts a spot among the 10 finalists for the Manning Award as the nations top quarterback.Theres plenty for him to fix as a passer before a likely playoff game, and certainly in the next couple of years.Hurts threw his eighth and ninth interceptions of the season in the first half against Auburn .dddddddddddd Thats more than any Alabama quarterback since coach Sabans first year, in 2007, when John Parker Wilson was picked off 12 times.Hurts has also fumbled nine times, losing five.Hes made more than enough plays to compensate for those mistakes, proving his resiliency along with his talent. Hurts is still learning on the job, after all, and Saban said hes very dedicated to improving.I dont think anybody on the team wants to play better at his position than Jalen Hurts, Saban said. He wants to do well. Youre still talking about a guy thats a freshman. You cant really coach experience. There are some things that guys just have to learn by doing and sometimes the best way to learn it is when you make mistakes.Hurts took over the starting job after the opener against USC, when he fumbled on his first snap. Former five-star signee Blake Barnett started that game but soon left the program when it was clear Hurts was going to be the guy.Hes operating an offense with talented runners like Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough and receiving threats like ArDarius Stewart and Calvin Ridley.But nobody has delivered more timely plays than Hurts. He has produced eight runs of 20-plus yards and some big passing plays, though he hasnt been particularly consistent with the deep ball.McElwain praises not only Hurts talent but his mental fortitude.I do know theyve done a heck of a job playing to his strengths, he said. Hes fun to watch, Im telling you. Hes got a great command. Hes calm. He doesnt get flustered. He takes what they give him. Yet they give him a crack, he can beat you with his feet.As coach (Saban) used to say about the running quarterbacks, its like playing 12 guys on the field. It looks that way sometimes.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 [url=http://www.cheaphoodiesfromchina.com/]Wholesale Hoodies[/url] [url=http://www.cheapshirtsfromchina.com/]NFL Shirts Outlet[/url] [url=http://www.cheapnfljerseysfastshipping.net/]Jerseys NFL Wholesale[/url] [url=http://www.cheapnfljerseyssupplywholesale.com/]Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping[/url] [url=http://www.wholesalejerseyssupplycheap.com/]Wholesale Jerseys Cheap[/url] [url=http://www.cheapjerseyssupplychina.com/]Cheap NFL Jerseys China[/url] [url=http://www.cheapjerseysonlinediscount.com/]Wholesale Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheapjerseysfastshipping.net/]Wholesale NFL Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.chinajerseyscheap.net/]Cheap NFL Jerseys China[/url] [url=http://www.stitchedjerseys.net/]Cheap NFL Jerseys[/url] ' ' '
