ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Three months ago, Aqib Talib was in a hospital room in Dallas with a gunshot wound to his right leg, the circumstances of the shooting as foggy as his future in football.As the television in the corner showed images of his teammates laughing with the president in the Rose Garden, Talib, who had bought a custom-fitted $3,500 suit to wear to the White House, instead awaited his discharge while wondering if hed ever walk correctly again.While everyone else was asking how hed been shot, Talib worried if his NFL career was over.Answers to that first question have eluded both police detectives and league investigators ever since.What is crystal clear is that Talib is not only back but hes returned to form as one of the games great cornerbacks.His 46-yard interception return for a touchdown against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts two weeks ago was his ninth career pick-6. On Sunday, he sparked the unbeaten Broncos 27-7 win at Tampa Bay by picking off a pair of Jameis Winston passes.Although his two interceptions led to Denvers first two touchdowns, Talib has been kicking himself this week knowing he might have taken them back the final 11 and 27 yards himself .Definitely, I definitely could have scored on both of them, according to the iPad, Talib said with a laugh. I definitely could have scored on both of them, so I have to get better at that.Only three players are better at it than Talib. Rod Woodson owns the record with a dozen pick-6s, one more than Darren Sharper and Charles Woodson.Nobody has more than Talibs 33 interceptions since he entered the league in 2008.Hes playing special, hes having a big year, said coach Gary Kubiak, who had Talib address the team Saturday night on the eve of his first game in Tampa since he was traded from the Buccaneers to New England midway through the 2012 season.It was special, man, Talib said of his return to the city where he began his career as a first-round draft pick out of Kansas nine years ago. I got a warm welcome off the plane, into the hotel, on the field. Got a warm welcome, and to be able to put on show like that in front of the fans that I still have in Tampa, man, it was special.Talib missed the final month of OTAs and much of training camp while recovering from his wound. His absence, combined with Super Bowl MVP Von Millers protracted and sometimes nasty contract stalemate, were the marquee concerns in Denvers drama-packed offseason that included a quarterback shuffle and two defensive defections.With Millers league-leading 5+ sacks and Talibs three interceptions, the Broncos (4-0) are one of three unbeaten teams heading into Sundays showdown against the Falcons (3-1), who are coming off a 48-33 win over Carolina in which they became the first team in history to sport a 500-yard passer (Matt Ryan) and a 300-yard receiver (Julio Jones) in the same game.It fires us up to go compete against the best, Talib said. Julio and Matt Ryan are the best right now in the league so it fires us up to go compete against themDenvers defense is right up there, too, leading the Broncos on a path they envision ending the same way last season did.And if they do get to hoist the Lombardi again, Talib already has a fancy suit stitched up by his tailor and zipped up in a bag in his closet, ready for him to greet the president in style.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapletonHis work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/arnie-stapleton [url=http://www.cheapjerseysoverchina.us/]Wholesale Jerseys China[/url] .

The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game.All that Andy Murray needs to try and do is not let Novak Djokovic widen the gap at the Paris Masters in order to achieve his ultimate goal of becoming world No 1, says Barry Cowan. Murray continued his march towards the top spot by winning the Erste Bank Open in Vienna on Sunday. Super Murray wins in Vienna Andy Murray beats Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win Erste Bank Open in Vienna The 29-year-old Scot swept past Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 6-3 7-6 (8-6) with an immaculate display in the final to earn his seventh title of the year. The Olympic and Wimbledon champion can take over the world No 1 ranking from Djokovic if he wins next weeks Paris Masters and the Serb fails to reach the final. Highlights of Andy Murray v Jo-Wilfried Tsonga from the Vienna Open final Djokovic has been handed a tough route to the title in Paris, where he will start in the second round against Spains Nicolas Almagro or in-form Gilles Muller of Luxembourg.The top ranking could come to a head when he faces a blockbuster semi-final clash against US Open champion Stan Wawrinka.Murrays route is also a tough one and includes a potential opening second round match against Fernando Verdasco before facing Roberto Bautista Agut, Tomas Berdych and then a mouth-watering semi-final date against Milos Raonic or Kei Nishikori. Djokovic is fresh, but Djokovic has not won big matches of late and so long as Andy can have a chance mathematically and its in his control going into London - I think hell do it. Barry Cowan on Andy Murrays chances of becoming World No 1 And Sky Sports tennis expert Cowan feels Murray can do it if the mathematics work in his favour.Realistically, this is going to be very tough for Andy next week going into Paris, Cowan said. The hardest will be the first couple of rounds in Paris, and if he can get through those and the closer to the weekend he gets then I think he will be feeling better in himself and then he starts to see the finishing line.Djokovic is fresh, but Djokovic has not won big matches of late and so long as Andy can have a chance mathematically and its in his control going into London - I think hell do it.

He was coming into the final in so much confidence, playing his best tennis in every big match. Murray and Djokovics rivalry at the top of the rankings will continue in Paris Andy was so clear in how he wantedd to play and I think thats why hes been able to play such great, great tennis when it really matters.ddddddddddddWhat was impressive from Andy was the way he was able to stem the Tsonga attack in the tie-break. But crucially in the tie-break Murray found the first serve again.Murray won an impressive 74 per cent of his second serve points in Sundays final and Cowan feels that is the most improved aspect of his game this year.Andys developed pace and variation - the ability to change it up. He used to always be consistent where he hit the serve - it was always in the same spot. Sometimes you need to vary it, go big to the backhand side, forehand, hit it with a little bit more spin, sometimes you have to go into the body. Hes started to do that a lot more and that comes from confidence. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99.
