Players and coaches like to say the Heisman Trophy is really a team award.Well, Lamar Jacksons Louisville teammates did not give him much help Thursday night against Houston, so now the winner of the Heisman is not quite the foregone conclusion it was last week.The Cardinals quarterback was not at his best in a 36-10 loss, in which he was sacked 11 times but his remarkable athleticism likely saved him from three or four more. The negative sack yardage, which counts toward rushing yards in college, killed Jacksons box score. Jackson ran for 116 yards on 14 carries, not counting the 11 sacks. Add those and the numbers drop to 25 for 33.He was 20 for 43 for 211 yards passing with a touchdown and no picks. He did have a crucial fumble near the goal line.So is the door open for someone to overtake Jackson in voting by the APs Heisman watch panel? Maybe. Not only has he stumbled, but the next two weeks will be filled with high-stakes games, involving Heisman contenders:Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville (21 points)Numbers to know: Jackson has thrown six interceptions and lost three fumbles, giving him nine turnovers. By comparison, Clemsons Deshaun Watson has 13 interceptions. Oklahomas Baker Mayfield has 11 turnovers (eight and three). Washingtons Jake Browning has nine (seven and two). Ohio States J.T. Barrett has five (four and one).Next: Kentucky. The Wildcats rank 86th in the nation in defense at 5.95 yards per play allowed. Two weeks ago, Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs had 223 yards passing, 147 yards rushing and accounted for five touchdowns against this defense.Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson (12 points)Number to know: There is no doubt that Watsons performance now compared with last years is off, but by how much? This season he is averaging 336.7 yards per game of total offense. Last year, 347.3. So not that much.Next: South Carolina. The Gamecocks have been OK defensively, allowing 5.44 yards per play (50th in the nation).Jonathan Allen, DL, Alabama (2 points)Number to know: Allen is one of five finalists for the Nagurski Award given to the national defensive player of the year.Next: No. 16 Auburn. The Tigers rank fifth in the nation in rushing at 297 yards per game and in rushing attempts at 52. The Tigers also rank 119th in passing attempts at 243.Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma (2 points)Number to know: Westbrook has 24 catches of at least 20 yards, most in the nation, and 12 of at least 40 yards, tied for tops in the country.Next: No. 10 Oklahoma State, Dec. 3.J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State (1 point)Number to know: Barrett leads the Big Ten in touchdown passes with 24.Next: No. 3 Michigan. The Wolverines lead the nation in yards allowed per game at 245.6 and are second in yards per play allowed at 3.95.Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State (1 point)Number to know: Cook has scored 17 touchdowns, including two four-touchdown games.Next: No. 13 Florida.

BOSTON -- The protective plastic sheeting from Torontos end-of-season celebration was still covering the lights in the visitors clubhouse at Fenway Park on Saturday.No reason to take it down.They might need it again pretty soon.The Cleveland Indians arrived in Boston with a 2-0 lead in their best-of-five AL Division Series and a chance to eliminate the Red Sox in Game 3 on Sunday. If they do, it will also be the end for Boston designated hitter David Ortiz, who will retire at the end of the season and will do everything he can before then to make sure that doesnt come quite so soon.Everybody had it mapped out in their head in spring training what we wanted to do, knowing that David was not going to be here next year, said Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, who will try to keep the season going. We reached the first goal, and that was to get in the playoffs and win the division. Second part of it has not worked out the first two games, but I dont think theres anybody on this team thats more confident than David Ortiz about us moving forward.And whenever he comes to bat, he would love to put himself in the most pressure-packed position, Buchholz said. Thats just what hes done over his career.After Cy Young candidate Rick Porcello and ace David Price failed to beat Cleveland in the first two games, Buchholz (8-10, 4.78 in 2016) will try to slow down an Indians offense that already has four homers in the series. He will face Cleveland right-hander Josh Tomlin (13-9, 4.40), a former teammate from Angelina Junior College.This is a pretty cool story, Buchholz said. We talked about it the other day. Hes one of my good buddies. ... Its a small world when it comes to that.Tomlin said the two pitchers get together in the offseason and have been back to the school in Lufkin, Texas, to work out with their coach. When their teams play, they sometimes hang out or go out to lunch.This year, theyve had more to talk about than just their school days: Each of them has struggled this season and was bounced from his teams rotation. After going 0-5 with an 11.48 ERA in August, Tomlin made his next appearance out of the bullpen and didnt start again until Sept. 14.The idea was to give him maybe a little of a break, Indians manager Terry Franccona said.dddddddddddd I think what he actually did was he dug in and tried to figure out, `OK, what makes me a good pitcher and why? And I think he probably got to it quicker than the rest of us.Buchholz spent more time going back and forth to the bullpen, with 21 starts and 16 relief appearances. But he returned to the rotation in September and went 3-0, allowing two runs or fewer in four of his last five starts.Hes had a resurgence of his own right inside the season, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. I dont think anyone can fully appreciate all that hes been through this year. (He) needed a little bit of a breather from the rotation, worked out some issues while going to the bullpen and has returned and is pitching some of the best baseball, I think, in his career.The Red Sox had a meeting on Saturday -- players and coaches -- after arriving at Fenway, and Buchholz said the team needed a reminder of what brought it so much success this season.Were here because of everybody and what theyve done throughout this year, he said. We have a potential couple of MVP candidates, potential Cy Young candidate on this team. Were a really good ballclub and theres no need to put added pressure or added stress on one game because of what could happen.Across the diamond, the Indians were loose -- thanks to their two-game lead.Francona arrived in the media interview room at the same time as Tomlin and promptly rearranged the schedule to let his pitcher go first. He then asked him, Are you getting a Texas-to-English translator?When Tomlin stuck around to watch his managers interview, Francona said something nice about the 31-year-old pitcher and then said, I think Im going to throw up.Even with the joking around, reliever Andrew Miller said the team knows it still has work to do.We cant take our foot off the gas, he said. Were not celebrating at this point.Game 4 would be Monday night at Fenway, if necessary, with Game 5 back in Cleveland on Wednesday.Until then, Tomlin and Buchholz wont be having any meals together.Yeah, Ill text him tonight, Tomlin said. Not tomorrow. But the next day after that? Yeah. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
