Halftime Notes: Preseason Josh Donaldson Jersey At Raiders

The Rams’ first-team offense scored two touchdowns on its first three drives during the first quarter.

 

OAKLAND — The Rams and Raiders have had a high-powered first half, but a 35-yard Greg Zuerlein field goal gave Los Angeles a 17-14 lead heading into halftime. Here are some notes from the first two quarters.

FAST START OFFENSIVELY

The Rams got off to a strong start offensively, rolling down the field in eight plays for a touchdown.

Quarterback Jared Goff completed all four of his passes for 66 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Cooper Kupp. Tight end Gerald Everett also started well, catching a crossing route and darting down Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale the field for a 23-yard gain. Robert Woods also had a pair of receptions for 19 yards on the drive.

Running back Todd Gurley started well, rushing four times for 19 yards on the first drive. He converted the only third down the Rams faced — a 3rd-and-1 — with a Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey three-yard run. Gurley also kept a pile moving for an eight-yard run on the ensuing first down.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins was on the field with the first-team offense throughout the drive, but did not receive a target. But his presence was felt, as he appeared to draw defenders on Kupp’s Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap touchdown catch.

Goff finished the first half 16-of-20 passing for 160 yards with a touchdown. Gurley finished with 38 yards on eight carries with one touchdown. And Kupp had six receptions for 70 yards with a TD.

TRU JOHNSON PICK

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson captured the Rams’ first interception of the preseason on the defense’s second drive.

On 3rd-and-6 from the Oakland 34, outside Kevin Pillar Jersey linebacker pressured quarterback Derek Carr and nearly came away with a sack. But while Carr evaded Barwin, he threw a pass intended for wideout Michael Crabtree right to Johnson over the middle of the field. Johnson returned the pass nine yards to the
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Oakland 41 to set the Rams’ up in solid field position.

POINTS OFF TURNOVERS

L.A. cashed in after the interception, using another eight-play drive to get back in the end zone.

Gurley Josh Donaldson Womens Jersey did plenty of work on the drive, including a four-yard run to start it off, an eight-yard run, and a two-yard touchdown to cap it. Goff was sharp on the drive, too, firing a 12-yard pass on the left sideline to tight end Tyler Higbee. And he Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey hit Kupp over the middle for a nine-yard pass.

The touchdown put Los Angeles up 14-7.

Five Players to Watch: Preseason at Oakland

Team insider Myles Simmons has five players to watch for Los Angeles’ second preseason matchup of 2017.

The Rams will face the Raiders in Oakland for their second preseason matchup on Saturday night. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. on CBS 2. Here are five players to look out for
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap during the contest.

1) Josh Donaldson Jersey WR Sammy Watkins — No. 2

Watkins has only practiced as a Ram for a few days after last week’s trade, but he’s still expected to play with the first-team offense on Saturday. Quarterback Jared Goff said this week Watkins has been a quick study when it comes to learning the playbook, which has been an added bonus to his talent. It’s not clear exactly how much Watkins will play, but just his presence can have a ripple effect for Kevin Pillar Youth Jersey the rest of the offense because teams must pay him attention.Kevin Pillar Womens Jersey

2) TE Gerald Everett — No. 81

The rookie tight end has performed well in practice, particularly in the red zone. This week, he hauled in a fade route over one of his teammates for a touchdown during 11-on-11 red zone drills. Everett showed a bit of his ability last week on his nine-yard reception, shaking off a pair of defenders before being tackled. Look for more of Everett’s pass-catching skill to continue to show up this week in Oakland.

3) WR Josh Reynolds — No. 83

Recovering from a quad injury, Reynolds did not play against the Cowboys. But he was back in business this week with a particularly impressive day on Tuesday. During that practice, Reynolds caught a deep pass from Goff in 7-on-7 drills, and then hauled in a few bullet passes from Sean Mannion. Listed at 6-foot-3, Reynolds’ Kevin Pillar Jersey height and wingspan give him an edge on many defenders. The fourth-round pick should be intriguing in
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey his debut on Saturday

4) DB Dominique Hatfield — No. 34

The Rams signed Hatfield as an undrafted free agent out of Utah, and he’s performed well throughout training camp. He was particularly impressive over the past week in practice, recording multiple interceptions. Hatfield will likely appear on both defense and special teams against the Raiders.

5) RB Justin Davis — No. 42

The undrafted USC product was Los Angeles’ leading rusher last week, recording 70 yards on nine carries. But Davis also had some issues with ball security, fumbling twice in the second quarter. Head coach Sean McVay said he was pleased with the way Davis responded after the turnovers, however. The Rams’ offense started each day of practice
Youth Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey this week with ball security drills, so we’ll see how much they’ve taken hold for Davis and the rest of the unit on Saturday night Josh Donaldson Jersey For Sale.

 

Goff Sharp in Second 2017 Josh Donaldson Jersey Preseason Appearance

QB Jared Goff finished 16-of-20 passing for 160 yards and a touchdown, leading the Rams to three scoring drives in the first half against the Raiders.

OAKLAND — Quarterback Jared Goff had an up-and-down start to the week in practice. But any issues looked far
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 20 Josh Donaldson Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey Cheap behind him on Saturday night, as the second-year signal-caller finished a
Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Jersey sharp 16-of-20 passing for 160 yards and a touchdown.

Originally slated to play just over a quarter — or 20-25 snaps — Goff ended up with about 37, according to Custom Dolphins Jersey head coach Sean McVay, and played essentially the entire first half. In that time, Goff completed passes to seven different receivers, leading the offense to three scoring drives — including a pair of eight-play possessions that ended in touchdowns.

“I thought Jared did a great job making good decisions, got a lot of people involved,” McVay said postgame. “And I thought just from having eight snaps in Week 1 and then coming in tonight and having 37 — we always talk about that daily improvement and he definitely got better this week.”

“I felt good,” Goff said. “I think we started the way we wanted to start. I think we were aggressive offensively.”

Part of what made Goff so effective was the way the offense was able to avoid negative plays. The Rams faced only three third downs of longer than five yards when Goff was in the
Youth Majestic Flexbase Authentic 11 Kevin Pillar Toronto Blue Jays Home White Baseball Jersey game, which is why the club ended the first two quarters six-of-eight in third-down efficiency.

“It’s huge —& Customized Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey nbsp;huge for any offense, especially for us when we’re able to stay in front of the sticks, stay in 3rd-and-manageable,” Goff said. “It’s a game changer. You don’t like to be in 3rd-and-12. You don’t want to be in even 2nd-and-12, you want to stay ahead of the sticks. And I think we did a good job of that tonight. And ultimately,
Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Majestic White Flex Base 40th Anniversary Patch Jersey that’ll help us move the ball and score points.”

The time of possession numbers also illustrate how the Rams were able to get in a rhythm in the first half. L.A. doubled up Oakland, maintaining possession for 20:01 to the Raiders’ 9:59.

“I think we have to get a few plays to get us into a rhythm,” Goff said. “But once we do, once we move the ball, you get a couple first downs, you start getting that little feel, you start getting into a rhythm. And I think you can definitely feel it —& n Custom Jaguars Jersey bsp;certainly toward the end of that second drive, we felt like we had a pretty good tempo going. And we were able to move the ball Custom Chiefs Jersey on almost every down.”

Goff was sacked once — when 2016 Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack split a double team to make his way into the backfield — but was kept upright for the rest of the first half, as no other Raider had a quarterback hit. The quarterback showed solid pocket awareness, stepping up when he needed to. But the five men up front did well, too.

“I thought the O-line did a great job of creating that pocket, especially with guys like Bruce Irvin and Khalil Mack on the edge there,” Goff said. “Running them up behind me and giving me a pocket to sit in was really, really good tonight.”

And so though Goff had a rocky start to the week, McVay seemed pleased with how the quarterback kept working and was able to effectively command the offense on Saturday.

“My experience with Jared to this point has shown me that he’s nothing but a mentally tough guy that has great resilience and the ability to respond when things don’t work out,” McVay said. “And I think he’s able to take it for what it is and learn from it, and try to avoid those moving forward. But I think it’s also our job as coaches to try to put him in situations that are conducive for making good decisions consistently.”

“I thought he did an excellent job getting in and out of the huddle, managing it,” McVay added. “It was a good atmosphere tonight, where you’re having to use your silent cadence and do some different things. So there were some different elements that — very pleased with the way with he led the offense. And we were able to come away with some points and that’s always the goal.”

 

Rams Waive Four Players Troy Tulowitzki Blue Jays Jersey

Following the conclusion of the club’s offseason program last week, the Rams have waived four players. Los Angeles’ active roster now stands at 86.

Following the conclusion of the club’s offseason program last week, the Rams have waived four players: wide receiver Marquez North, linebacker Reggie Kevin Pillar Jersey, center Demetrius Rhaney, and outside linebacker Teidrick Smith.

Of the four, Rhaney was a seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and has appeared in 32 games for the franchise Josh Donaldson Jersey. He was Russell Martin Jersey mainly a special teams contributor during the 2016 season, during which he played in all 16 games.

Los Angeles now has three centers on its roster: starter John Sullivan, Austin Blythe, and Jake Eldrenkamp. Sullivan was signed as an unrestricted free agent in April. The Rams claimed Blythe off waivers from the Colts in May. And Endrenkamp was siTroy Tulowitzki Jerseygned as a college free agent following the draft.

The Rams’ roster now stands at 86 players. The team will report to training camp at UC Irvine in late Joe Carter Jersey July.

 

Blue Jays Jersey Wholesale to Open Training Camp as Starting Joe Carter

Rams HC Sean McVay confirmed on Thursday OL Jamon Brown will begin training camp in late July as the club’s starting right tackle, following Greg Robinson’s trade to the Lions.

The Rams made a significant trade Custom Blue Jays Jersey on Wednesday morning, sending offensive lineman Greg Robinson to the Lions for an undisclosed draft pick.

While the move will give Robinson a fresh start in the NFC North, it also has consequences for Los Angeles’ offensive line. Jamon Brown has been taking snaps at first-team right tackle since the second week of OTAs, and on Thursday head coach Sean McVay said he will open training camp as the starter.

“Jamon has done some really good things. Right now, he will be the guy that will be the tackle when we go out there, but by no means is our starting lineup set in stone,” McVay said. “We’re going to continue to evaluate Blue Jays Jersey Red these guys and try to put them in situations that are competitive, where you really, truly evaluate what goes on in games. And then the preseason is going to be a great tool for us as well.”

One reason the Rams felt comfortable making the move to trade Robinson is the depth the club feels it has along the line with Andrew Donnal and Pace Murphy, in addition to Brown.

“You have Jamon’s development and some of those other guys at the tackle position that enable you to move a player like Greg and feel good about it, because of what he has Jose Bautista Jersey done and put on tape,” McVay said. “It was more of a credit to those others guys than anything that Greg didn’t show us.”

According to McVay, Los Angeles’ deal to send Robinson to Detroit developed rapidly over the last few days. With Lions left tackle Taylor Decker undergoing shoulder surgery that will keep him sidelined for a significant portion of the season, Detroit had an immediate need at the position.

“It was something where a couple other teams had expressed some interest,” McVay said. “Fortunately we were able to get a thing done that we felt Russell Martin Jersey was good for both Detroit and the Rams.”

Plus Robinson himself. McVay referenced Robinson telling Detroit media that having a fresh start is “refreshing” and that he plans to make the most out of it. The timing of the trade also benefits both Robinson and the Rams, as it gives the parties a chance to make necessary adjustments over the NFL’s summer break.

“I think it allows Greg to be able to have a fresh start, knowing where he’s going to be, especially when you have a bit of a break,” McVay said. “Then it also gives us a chance to figure out what you want to do to make sure you get your numbers, where now you lose a lineman and you want to make sure you have the appropriate numbers going into training camp with your 90[-man roster] and how you want to shape that — based on the evaluation Troy Tulowitzki Jersey of the guys we do have in-house right now.”

For now, the two on the right side are Brown and Rob Havenstein. It’s a familiar pairing, though they’re in different spots than they were when drafted in 2015. According to McVay, the plan is to keep Brown at tackle and Havenstein at guard.

“He did a nice job of adjusting inside, so I think that’s what we’re going to do moving forward,” McVay said of Havenstein. “It wasn’t exactly how you project and anticipate moving forward. You’ve got to be able to adjust. I think Josh Donaldson Jersey, to Rob’s credit, his ability to be able to transition to that spot inside is a credit to his approach from an above-the-neck standpoint, with how smart and instinctual he is.

“What you do feel good about is, if for whatever reason something were to happen to Jamon at that tackle spot, you have a guy that is playing the guard position who has also played good ball at the right-tackle spot,” McVay continued. “And it’s Joe Carter Jersey  hard to find those types of guys.”

But his focus began to shift in 2005, after observing how storm

Later that year, Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, submerging communities once believed to be safe behind levees and dikes. As floodwaters inundated Vietnam’s Mekong Delta last year, Geisler’s new worldview came into sharp relief.

Custom Dodgers Jersey Shenzhen to pursue B&R opportunities

Major companies in Shenzhen are expanding to cope with growth opportunities thrown up from the Belt and Road Initiative.

International projects are opening up for businesses in industries
Custom Dodgers Jersey such as infrastructure, logistics, information technology and financial services.

“To reap the benefits from its harbor location, Shenzhen is boosting connectivity with countries and regions related to the Belt and Road Initiative by implementing projects in trade, logistics, air transport and the information sector,” said Wu Sikang, director of the Shenzhen Development Research Center.

Shenzhen is one of China’s most vibrant cities and is actively
Custom Rockies Jersey encouraging Chinese companies to develop a Going Global strategy.

Already many firms are involved in putting together logistic networks, Wu confirmed.

Shenzhen Yantian Port Group Co Ltd has signed a memorandum of understanding to take part in the Melaka Gateway Port project in Malaysia.

China Merchants Group has also announced plans to roll out offices in 47 ports in 18 countries.

Local enterprise groups continue to be in the forefront of the Belt and Road Initiative, which connects Asia, Africa and Europe to a modern version of the ancient Silk Road.

Shenzhen airport has invested heavily in infrastructure renovation and launched new flights. It has added 12 international routes, including to Sydney, Dubai and Jakarta.

It has also increased the number of flights to major Southeast Asia
Personalized Colorado Rockies Jersey cities. Last year, about 2.23 million international travelers visited the airport, which was up one third year-on-year.

Other sectors are also experiencing a boom.

“To serve the city’s crossborder financial and logistics business, Shenzhen is working full swing on its booming IT sector,” Wu said.

“It has increased the speed levels of its internet connection with Qianhai, the pilot zone for service industry cooperation. And it will
Men’s Authentic Custom Colorado Rockies Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap also build a cross-border e-commerce customs clearance platform,” he added.

Wu pointed out that stimulating cross-border trade was crucial to

In 2016, Shenzhen attracted $280 million of foreign investment, a Men’s Authentic Customized Colorado Rockies Alternate Navy Blue Baseball Jersey jump of 175 percent compared to the previous year.

Domestic companies such as Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and ZTE Corp are also scrambling to expand their global presence.

Custom Dodgers Jersey Facial recognition installed at Chinese crossroads to tackle jaywalking

Jaywalkers in China risk be identified by facial recognition technology and having their photo and personal information
Custom Dodgers Jersey exposed to public to shame them for breaking the law.

Traffic management authorities in several Chinese cities have installed facial recognition equipment and screens at major intersections to tackle the ongoing problem of jaywalking and encourage road safety.

Since the equipment was installed in Jinan, capital of east China’s
Custom Rockies Jersey Shandong Province, in early May, it has captured photographic proof of more than 6,000 cases involving pedestrians and non-motorized vehicles crossing roads during red
Men’s Authentic Custom Colorado Rockies Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap lights.

The facial recognition equipment takes several snapshots and a 15-second video when it detects pedestrians crossing the intersection on a red light. The photographs appear on the screen immediately so the offender can see they have been caught.

The photographs are then compared with the images in the provincial police department database and matches are checked by a police officer to confirm accuracy. Within 20 minutes, the offender’s photograph and personal information such as their ID number and home address are displayed on the screen at the crossroad.

Traffic police then contact the offenders and give them a choice of
Men’s Authentic Customized Colorado Rockies Alternate Navy Blue Baseball Jersey three forms of punishment: a fine of 20 yuan (around 3 U.S. dollars), a half-hour traffic rule course, or 20 minutes assisting police in controlling traffic.

Offenders’ information may also be published on social media, for example on the Jinan Traffic Police Weibo microblogging account. In the future, police may also inform the offenders’ employers or residential communities of the violation.

“Since the new technology has been adopted, the cases of jaywalking have been reduced from 200 to 20 each day at the major intersection of Jingshi and Shungeng roads. Fewer people are crossing roads during red lights,” said Li Yong with Jinan Traffic Police.

Personalized Colorado Rockies Jersey The city will install facial recognition equipment at 50 major intersections by the end of June.
Men’s Los Angeles Dodgers Authentic Personalized Royal Blue MLB BP Jersey Cheap Each piece of equipment costs around 100,000 yuan.

A number of Chinese cities in the provinces of Fujian, Jiangsu, Guangdong and Shandong have also started using the technology to catch jaywalkers.

Facial recognition is becoming increasingly common in China, where it has been installed in ATM machines, KFC restaurants, female university dormitories and even public toilets to save toilet paper.

However, the rapid and extensive application of the technology has also triggered public concerns about privacy.

The measures have experimental value as they help traffic police to
Personalized Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey deal with minor offenses that are to some extent rampant and hard to penalize, said Liu Guanghua, a law professor at Lanzhou University.

“However, law enforcement agencies should be careful to stay within the boundaries of law. The use of personal information should be strictly controlled,” said Liu.

In response to public concern, Liu Xiaojing from Jinan Traffic Police, pointed out screens only show the images of adults and hide several numbers or characters on the offender’s ID number and address.

Other critics claimed that facial recognition is not a silver bullet to tackle jaywalking, as people may cross roads illegally because they have limited right of way in a country which had 300 million motor vehicles as of March.

“Traffic lights are designed to be more friendly to vehicles in China. I
Website sometimes have to wait for at least three green lights before I can cross a road. It is the drivers who should be shamed on the screen,” said a Weibo account under the name “A ZX”.

Another Weibo account “Yaoyiyi” commented that many city roads are too wide and the green light changes too quickly.

“I am usually trapped in the middle of the road when the light suddenly turns red and have to run to the other side. It is good to be
Youth Authentic Los Angeles Dodgers Customized Home White Baseball Jersey Cheap a runner!” “Yaoyiyi” said.
