You can catch all of the action live on TSN at 9pm et/6pm et. For defending BPL champion City, Wednesday nights match with Sporting will be the first action of their North American tour. After Wednesday, City will compete in the Guinness International Champions Cup where they will play Liverpool, Milan and Olympiacos over the next 10 days. Though, City brings with them a strong team for the tour including new signing Fernando, Samir Nasri and Aleks Kolarov, they will be without the services of striker Alvaro Negredo. The Spanish international suffered a foot injury on Sunday in a 2-1 friendly victory over Hearts. Hes expected to be out for several months. “I want to let you know that its going to be hard for the next few months,” Negredo wrote on Instagram on Monday. “I fractured my fifth metatarsal and will be out a few months. “I will be back stronger than ever.” Sporting Kansas City, who currently sit atop the Eastern Conference, see their date with the English champions as a chance to prove their own championship mettle, but also share Defoes sentiments about having this fixture in the middle of a long season. “Its always important to make sure when were playing any international match that we perform well and continue to raise the profile of the league,” coach Peter Vermes told the Kansas City Star. “All of these games have a certain significance, but I dont want to over play it from the point of view that were in the running for our league at the moment. And playing an exhibition in the middle of the season — as much as its good for an event for all these other things — is not the focus.” Even with the fixture-strain these games put on MLS sides, Sportings American international midfielder Benny Feilhaber sees the importance for Sporting to test its skill against a European giant. “Theyre a great team obviously,” Feilhaber said. “Its their preseason game. We dont know how fit theyre going to be and how much theyre going to put into it, but for us, I think its a good test. It will be fun for the fans. ... Its always exciting to test yourself against a top club and top players.” Ben Gedeon Jersey . James Harden wasnt worried and told his coach as much. "He was fired up but I told him: Its OK. Were going to be all right," Harden said. And they were. Houston scored 17 straight points after that timeout, led by 10 from Harden, to take the lead and roll to an easy 129-106 win.

Blair Walsh missed a 68-yard field goal on the final play that could have won it for the Vikings.As I told the team, Im not into moral victories but these guys fought and played and scratched and clawed and gave a great effort today, Minnesota coach Mike Zimmer said. I thought we did an awful lot of good things.Bridgewater was sacked eight times in a 17-3 loss to the Lions in October. Detroit had four sacks Sunday, but Minnesotas rookie quarterback was difficult to rattle.The Vikings (6-8) held Detroit to 11 first downs, but after Jason Jones blocked Walshs 26-yard field goal attempt with 7:43 left, the Lions drove 65 yards to set up Matt Praters third short field goal of the game. His 33-yarder put the Lions ahead 16-14 with 3:38 remaining.Detroit (10-4) then withstood two more tense possessions for the Vikings.Trailing for the first time all day, the Vikings had a good chance to take the lead again after Cordarrelle Patterson returned the ensuing kickoff to the Minnesota 49. But a holding call pushed the Vikings back, and Bridgewater eventually threw incomplete on fourth down.The Vikings got the ball again at their 30 with 45 seconds left, but could only make it far enough to set up Walshs long attempt at a game winner. Zimmer decided to go for the field goal instead of a last-ditch pass.Either one is kind of a shot in the dark, but Blair has hit 70-yarders in practice before, Zimmer said. Soo I figured that was the best chance to win. Alan Page Jersey. Walsh couldnt convert. He also missed from 53 yards earlier in the game.Matthew Stafford threw for 153 yards and a touchdown for the Lions, who pulled into a first-place tie with Green Bay in the NFC North.In its last home game of the regular season, Detroit looked flat in the first half, falling behind by two touchdowns and drawing boos from the crowd at Ford Field. The Lions couldnt manage a first down until the second quarter, on their fifth offensive possession.Matt Asiata opened the scoring with a 2-yard touchdown run. Bridgewater added an 8-yard TD pass to Greg Jennings in the second quarter to make it 14-0. The Vikings were in Detroit territory again when Glover Quin intercepted Bridgewater and returned it 56 yards to the Minnesota 11.We did everything we could to hurt ourselves in the first half, in every phase, but GQ made a huge play to get us back into the game, Stafford said.Stafford threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate, and Bridgewaters next pass was behind Jennings and intercepted by Darius Slay, giving the Lions the ball at the Minnesota 32.The second one was just a horrible throw, Bridgewater said. I was late. When youre late for an out route, I left the ball inside. So I just have to continue to work.Praters field goal made it 14-10 at halftime.Prater, who helped stabilize Detroits terrible kicking game when he joined the Lions in October, connected from 30 yards in the third quarter to cut the deficit to one. Jones block in the fourth meant Detroit only needed a field goal to take the lead.NOTES: The Lions went 7-1 at home during the regular season. The previous time that happened was 1995, when the team still played at the Silverdome. ... Walshs career long is 56 yards.___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Ducks Jerseys Cheap Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Bruins Jerseys Cheap Sabres Jerseys Cheap Flames Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys Cheap Avalanche Jerseys Cheap Blue Jackets Jerseys Cheap Stars Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Cheap Oilers Jerseys Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Cheap Wild Jerseys ' ' '
