ort has been so dramatic over

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Brad Peacock Jersey . -- Nobody at Broncos headquarters is second-guessing Gary Kubiaks ill-fated decision to try a 62-yard field goal even though Brandon McManuss miss gave the Chiefs a short field to win it as overtime expired.Not the coach himself.Not his players.Not even his boss.Were in this game to WIN, general manager John Elway tweeted Monday. Although everyones disappointed, we played hard and went down swinging!!!!Kubiak said he would have been conceding a tie at best had he opted to pin the Chiefs deep with a punt instead.While that would have been difficult to take, at least it would have benefited the Broncos (7-4) in the standings, however. With the 30-27 loss, the Broncos (7-4) fell from the top-six in the AFC playoff chase , imperiling their chances of defending their Super Bowl title.That didnt come into Kubiaks equation with Denver facing fourth-and-10 from the K.C. 44 with 1:08 left in overtime Sunday night.During a timeout, he decided to go for the gusto.Its a tough kick but its something hes done and its me showing confidence in him and confidence in our defense if it doesnt happen, Kubiak said. I believe in our football team.When McManus missed, the Chiefs (8-3) got the ball at the Broncos 48 and Cairo Santos banked a 37-yarder off the left upright as time expired.The Broncos players arent joining the chorus of second-guessers.I wouldnt play for a tie, either, Von Miller said.If youre looking for a scapegoat, Aqib Talib offered up Denvers defense, which couldnt close it out after Fowlers 76-yard touchdown catch put the Broncos seemingly safe ahead 24-16 with three minutes left in regulation.With no timeouts, the Chiefs went 75 yards in 13 plays to force overtime. After hitting Tyreek Hill in front of cornerback Bradley Roby at the Denver 3 on fourth-and-10 with 15 seconds left, Alex Smith found Hill for the touchdown and Demetrius Harris for the tying 2-pointer.You give us an eight-point lead, man, Ill bet my game check aint nobodys going to score on us, Talib said.It seemed like a safe bet, though: The Chiefs had averaged just 12 yards on their first dozen drives, half of which were three-and-outs. But the Broncos suddenly fell apart, allowing the tying TD and field goals on both overtime possessions.We put that on us, Talib said. First time that happened. First time the D. hasnt closed the game in a long time. And lesson learned. We had a lot of mistakes, a lot of penalties, a lot of busts in coverage. We can get better from that tape.When Talib arrived at work Monday, he met with receiver Jordan Norwood, whom hed shoved in the back following a second muffed punt that gave Kansas City the ball at midfield in the fourth quarter following a terrific defensive stand.His first muff in the shadow of his own goal line led to a safety and subsequent touchdown return on the free kick, which put Denver in a 9-3 halftime hole despite allowing just 49 yards of offense.His second muff came after the Chiefs were forced to punt from their own end zone on fourth-and-21.As Norwood trudged off the field, an angry Talib shoved him toward the sideline.Talib, Norwood and Kubiak all said Monday that it happened in the heat of the moment and was no longer an issue.I tell our players all the time we battle together, we dont battle each other, Kubiak said.Talib, an emotional player who also bear-hugged Trevor Siemian after his fourth-quarter touchdown throw, said he apologized to Norwood, who said he accepted the gesture and was moving on.We were just playing football, Talib said. We talked about it. Were all good, man.I think its already squashed, Norwood said. Me and Aqib sat down one-on-one and talked a little bit and made sure were on the same page. Hes an emotional player, everybody knows that, everybody sees that, and he wants this team to win -- just as I do.There were a couple of other calls by Kubiak that had the airwaves buzzing Monday.He started Ty Sambrailo at right tackle but had to reinsert Donald Stephenson after an overwhelmed Sambrailo was whistled for holding and allowed two of Justin Houstons three sacks.And he went for the extra point after Fowlers 76-yard touchdown made it 23-16. A successful 2-point conversion would have made it a two-score game. A 2-point failure and its still a seven-point cushion.No, were going up eight right there, Kubiak said.So, he sent out McManus -- same as he would do late in overtime for what would have been the longest overtime field goal in NFL history.My thing is that were going to try to win around here, Kubiak said.---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 ;Jose Altuve Jersey .

Instead, the league plans to expand to 24 teams by the 2020 season. Commissioner Don Garber announced MLSs plan to add four more clubs during halftime of its annual All-Star game Wednesday night. The location of the teams has yet to be decided, but Garber said the league has already had discussions with potential owners. The news came one day after Hunt Sports Group announced it was selling the Columbus Crew to investor Anthony Precourt, and with New York City FC beginning play in two years. "The strength, passion and vision of the MLS ownership group is the foundation behind the success of our league," Garber said in a statement. "We look forward to adding new partners with the same commitment to the sport and love of the game." Garber told The Associated Press during an interview this week that the issue of expansion would be discussed "in great detail" during a meeting of league owners on Wednesday. "As MLS enters a period of accelerated growth," Garber said, "the addition of new teams will allow us to expand our geographic coverage, grow our fan base and help us achieve our vision of being among the best leagues in the world by 2022." MLS will have added 10 new teams since the 2005 season when New York City FC begins play, and Garber said that has helped to spearhead a significant growth in the game in the United States. "These expansion clubs have contributed to the vitality of our league," he said, "bringing passionate fans, new traditions and committed owners with new ideas." One of the most intriguing ownership possibilities is former Los Angeles Galaxy star David Beckham, whose MLS contract included an option to purchase a franchise when his career ended. Beckham has been linked to businessman Marcelo Claure, who owns Bolivian team Club Bolivar. The two appear interested in putting a team in Miami, where Claures wireless company Brightstar Corp. is based. Beckham has said he plans to reveal his MLS intentions in the next few months. "The foundations are now there for this sport to continnue to grow," Beckham said last fall. Gerrit Cole Jersey. "Ive seen it grow in the last six years, and we all want it to continue to grow. My commitment as an owner, people will be well aware of that in the new year, and hopefully where that will be. And like I said, my commitment as an ambassador for this sport and this country wont change." It makes sense that potential owners are lining up for an MLS franchise. They can be had for a fraction of what a Major League Baseball or NBA team would cost -- it cost English club Manchester City and its partner, the New York Yankees, an expansion fee of $100 million to launch New York City FC. Yet surging attendance and modest but consistent television growth appear to indicate that the league is becoming a valuable investment. Thats certainly changed from the early days of MLS, when an ownership group could acquire a franchise for less than $10 million and the league was fighting for survival. "Weve got a lot of cities that are kind of on our list right now that are exuberant -- they have the right sort of circumstances," said Robb Heineman, the CEO of Sporting KC. "Our league is hot right now. If you dont believe in Major League Soccer, I dont know why." Miami isnt the only city to be linked to an MLS team. Officials in Atlanta, Sacramento, Orlando, Detroit and the Twin Cities have also mentioned the possibility of landing a franchise. In a statement issued by the league, Garber laid out the criteria the league will use in determining future expansion markets. Among them is location, committed and engaged ownership, a comprehensive stadium plan, demonstrated fan support for professional soccer, support of sponsors and TV partners, and a strategic business plan for launching a club. Garber said the league will provide additional details, including a more detailed timeline, for its expansion plans in the coming months. "The overall growth of the sport has been so dramatic over the last number of years by almost any measure," Garber said. "Whether its the league or the national team or the womens game, all the developments are sort of proving the fact that were a soccer nation." Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Gear Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
